BY JIM CLARK Editor A 22-year-old Marion Oaks man is in the Marion County Jail, charged with two counts of felony murder and various other charges. According to reports from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, Azael Angel Stevens of 15670 S.W. 19th Ave. Road, shot and killed his grandmother and great-grandmother on Sept. 9. The victims were identified as Yolanda E. Fruto, 70, and Faustina M. Bontteg, 93, who were killed at the same address. According to the report, another woman who was at the house and her 8-year-old son went to a house next door asking for help. The woman had apparently been shot in the face. Because of the language barrier with the adults, the boy had to describe what happened. The report says that Stevens demanded car keys from the boys mother, then shot her in the face. At some point he allegedly killed the other two women. Two women die in Marion Oaks Felony murder charged Stevens PHOTO BY JIM CLARKConvention duty Sgt.

BY JIM CLARK Editor When the Tampa Police Dept. and Hillsborough County Sheriff found out that the Republican National Convention was coming to town, they decided they didnt have the numbers in law enforcement for crowd management, so they put out a notice to state agencies, asking for help. The Marion County Sheriffs Office answered the call, sending 38 members to a week at the gathering. Among those taking part was Sgt. Louis Pulford, who at the time was second in command at the Southwest District Office on State Road 200. The 11-year veteran of the Marion County Sheriffs Office, who is also a former police officer for Williston, has since been transferred to the Oklawaha district. The 38 members were split into four squads. Pulford was one of the squad leaders. The chain of command included a platoon consisting of squads, and a division under the Tampa Police. The local deputies went to Anniston, Alabama, for training. I dont see this type of thing happening in Ocala, he said, but it did provide first-hand crowd management training. The Thursday before the convention was check-in day. Pulford was among those who were put up at a LaQuinta Motel. Friday was a local training day, and then Saturday they went out into the field. We had to drive to the Fairgrounds for breakfast at 4:30 in the morning, and as a supervisor I had a briefing at 5:20, Pulford said, which meant he couldnt oversleep. At about 6 they were bused to their sites, and 12 hours later they were taken back to the Fairgrounds for dinner and a briefing. Sandwiches were served tor lunch. He was assigned to one of four sectors in downtown Tampa, from the east side of the river, Florida Avenue to Ashley Street, and I-275 south to the convention center. There were four parks in the area, and none was really bad. We had no problem with the protesters. He said that some more aggressive protesters come to these sites and try to mix in with the more calm folks, then cause trouble when law enforcement becomes distracted. But with so few protesters, they had no place to hide, Pulford said. Hurricane Isaac definitely had an effect, Pulford said, in keeping the out-of-town protesters from coming. He spoke of the hundreds of arrests four years ago at the convention site in St. Paul, Minnesota, but said from Saturday to Thursday in Tampa they had less than 10 total. Pulford said the emphasis was on tolerance, making sure people could express their First Amendment rights. They didnt want people making poor decisions. He said he was impressed with one Tampa assistant chief who, after lunch one day, took leftover sandwiches and drinks to the protesters. A more radical group had left to go to the RNC site and left the others behind with no food, drink or water. Pulford showed some of the equipment that he had to wear when on duty. He said that on top of his regular uniform, he added 50-60 pounds of crowd management gear, including a vest-like garment, arm guards, shin guards and a helmet with a number on it, all during the August heat of Florida. He said the numbers on the helmet were a great form of accountability. Fortunately, that wasnt needed after the way the crowds behaved, and after the way the 1,600 members of law enforcement handled the crowd management.

Friday, September 14, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, September 14, 2012 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISE Call 854-3986 ADVERTISING O n this date in 1948, Milton Berle started his TV career as the host of Tuesdays evening Texaco Star Theater. He was the first major American television star and was so popular that fewer movie tickets were sold on Tuesdays and some theaters, restaurants and other businesses shut down for the hour or closed for the evening. During Berles career of nearly 70 years, he collected more than 10,000 jokes from vaudeville, radio, television and film. Our travels down Pun Alley have found some of them for you. High flyingA man felt so sick that he decided to go to a famous medical clinic three thousand miles from home. He was given a battery of tests, the total cost of which was in the thousands. Twelve specialists agreed on a diagnosis. The man was told that he was in excellent health, but his blood pressure was too high. The man flew back to his home city and hailed a cab. As they rode, the man said to the driver that hed just completed a physical. Before he could explain the results, the cabdriver said, You look to be in excellent health, except maybe your blood pressure is too high. Hillbilly livingA 40-year-old hillbilly carried a younger hillbilly into the doctors office, deposited him on the examining table, and said, See if you can patch him up soon. I shot up his rear end like it was a tail on a possum. Dont hurt him none, because hes my son-inlaw. The doctor said, Why would you shoot your sonin-law? The hillbilly said, He wasnt my son-in-law when I shot him! Later, two hillbillies met and started to converse. One said, I got a darn mule with the fits. What did you give your mule when it had the fits? The other hillbilly said, I gave him a mixture of turpentine and kerosene. The next day the hillbillies met again. The first one said, I gave my mule some of that turpentine and kerosene. The mixture killed him. The other one said, Killed mine too. Quips We owe a lot to Thomas Edison; if it wasnt for him, wed be watching television by candlelight. I went to a parachutejumping class. The dropout rate was incredible. The company accountant is shy and retiring. Hes shy a quarter of a million dollars. Thats why hes retiring. A baker quit making donuts because he got tired of the hole thing. A committee is a group that keeps minutes and loses hours. If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands? I just got a brand new pill from my doctor. It has nothing but side effects. You can lead a man to Congress, but you cant make him think. A good wife always forgives her husband when shes wrong. If flowers dont talk back to you, are they mums? I know why Superman left Krypton. Earth was the only place where he could get steroids. He must be a good gardener. He and his plants are both potted. A man told a co-worker, I cant break my wife of the habit of staying up till five in the morning. What is she doing? the co-worker asked. Waiting for me to get home. VegasWhen Berle arrived to do shows in Las Vegas, he saw that some of the hotels are gigantic, more like cities than hotels, I checked into one of the largest. Before I got to my room I owed three days rent. The hotel had a very exclusive restaurant that was so fancy that when somebody ordered Russian dressing, the waiter put on Russian clothes to serve the dish. And when a customer ordered Hungarian goulash, the waiter put on a Hungarian costume. But after I ate there, said Miltie sorrowfully, the cops closed the place down. I never should have ordered that salad without dressing. While in Vegas, Berle would play gin rummy before his evening show and would always win big. But after the show, he would play craps where his luck was always bad, and by the end of the evening, he would have lost everything he had won. Everyone connected with the show knew that Uncle Miltie could certainly handle his gin, but invariably, Miltons pair of dice lost.

But youll have to present some hard facts and figures if you hope to persuade those who make the big decisions to support you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Keep those bright Bulls eyes focused on the project at hand. Avoid distractions. Therell be lots of time for fun and games later. Expect to get welcome news this weekend.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Its a good time to take a stand and show as much passion on your own behalf as you do when arguing for the rights of others. You might be happily surprised by the reaction. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You bring sense and sensitivity to a confusing situation. Things soon settle down, leaving you free to enjoy a weekend of fun and relaxation with friends and family.

Way Off BroadwayWay Off Broadways October production of Squad Room Blues is turning out to be the belly busting funny farce it was patterned after, the long running TV sitcom, Barney Miller staring Hal Linden and a whole host of equally funny actors. One of the funniest roles in the play is the part of a woman with a guilt complex played by Clara Laskay who made her Oak Run debut as a cook in St Louis at the Fair. Her first lines as she enters the squad room, bent on being arrested, are It doesnt matter. Im guilty. Im always guilty. Arrest me. Sentence me. I deserve it. Her lines get more hilarious as the play develops. Then we have a lunatic played by Wendy Panacek who thinks he is from the planet Mars, his brain is a two-way radio and the end of the world was yesterday. He comes and goes, in and out of captivity and he just gets wackier as they try to throw a butterfly net over him. When the funny lines subside some great musical numbers take over. There is never a dull moment. We have a share of romance too when our Detectives Grant, Marci Hutto, and Strindberg, Ray Balliet, are locked in an embrace, caught and threatened by the janitor, Mary Walker, with exposure and possible expulsion from the squad room. Well, we cant give away the plot but you will really be missing something if you dont come see the play. Remember, if you cannot make it to one of the public ticket sales contact a member of WOB or call Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 either of whom will see that you get tickets.

Friday, September 14, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com W e suffered through seemingly endless coming attractions in order to see Dinesh DSouzas much discussed documentary 2016: Obamas America. Weve read comments that its a vanity project, powerful stuff, propaganda, not a documentary, speculative, thoughtfully researched, et cetera. The producers are undoubtedly pleased that reviews have stimulated a continuing flow of paying customers and a theatre run that may win recognition as one of the best documentaries of all time We found nothing disturbing or frightening in the film comments weve heard from other viewers. Our impression is that the producers have vetted candidate Obama one election too late. In 2008, Republicans were too lazy, too cocky, or too intimidated by racial considerations to take a thorough look at the Democratic nominee for president. Instead of vetting candidate Obama, Republicans got tangled up in silly minutia, such as the mystery of his withheld birth certificate. Like the hoopla over Mr. Romneys tax returns, some dogs cant give up a smelly bone even though it has no meat on it. Both of Mr. Obamas books Dreams From My Father and The Audacity of Hope were available in 2008. They reveal Mr. Obamas America as he envisioned it then and sees it now. Since the end of the SpanishAmerican war (1898), Americas global influence has continued to grow in the name of world peace and commercial freedom. The underlying theme of 2016: Obamas America is that the President and his long-dead father have considered Americas worldwide influence a disguised remnant of colonialism, marred by the original sin of slavery. In The Audacity of Hope Mr. Obama said he is angry about national policies which favor the wealthy and powerful over average Americans, and that the majority of citizens are weary over the dead zone that American politics has become. He said plainly that his political mission is to begin a process of changing the politics and civic life of the nation. More specifically President Obama means reducing the more than 700 military installations America maintains at home and around the world, dedicating significant amounts of national wealth to saving the planet, stimulating domestic employment, and rearranging distribution of federal benefits. Mr. Obama admits modestly This isnt to say that I know exactly how to do it. I dont. He hopes he can complete changing the nation and the world in a second term. His goal is a socialistic democracy which distributes wealth compassionately and is not controlled or over influenced by commercial and military interests. Despite four years in the White House, Mr. Obama is an enigma to many Americans. For those who dont enjoy reading non-fiction biography, the movie 2016: Obamas America is an alternative. It draws a well-researched picture of his family background, his education, and his life journey. Its serious, but its not the scary movie some folks made it out to be. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, September 14, 2012 M aybe its time to go back to a career I once had. After viewing some football on television this past week, Ive decided I need to go back to being a football official. Of course, I only worked high school games, but I had 25 years of experience, and evidently that qualifies me to be one of the replacements in the National Football League. I watched the NFL this past weekend, locked into the Red Zone, a cable system channel that gives you highlight coverage of all games as they happen. I saw enough questionable officiating to make me go into the closet and dig for a whistle. The most egregious came on Sunday in the Denver vs. Pittsburgh game. Quarterback Peyton Manning of the Broncos suddenly went to a no-huddle offense, designed to catch the Steelers with too many men on the field. It worked. There was an extra player jogging off the field, right in front of an official. But that official had his back to the ball and had no clue that the ball had been snapped before the extra player got off the field. Its a basic fundamental: Watch the ball. The first call of the season was clipping, which resulted in a half-the-distance penalty. That happened last Wednesday. Unfortunately, the replay showed an average block in the back, a 10yard penalty. In fact, I didnt know they had clipping in the rule book any more. Its been years since Ive seen it called. There were some judgment calls that were questionable, but I learned a long time ago that judgment calls can look one way on TV and be entirely different in person. But not watching the ball? Thats inexcusable. Of course, football is not the only sport that has officiating problems. In a baseball game Saturday, the Yankees lost a chance to tie on the last play of the game when one of their players slid into first (never a smart thing) but was called out, even though replay showed he was obviously safe. But back to football. Its obvious they need me. Of course Im a bit older, cant see as well, have gained some weight over the years and cant run as fast as I used to. But other than those little things. I think Im perfectly qualified. So look for me next Sunday. Ill be the old guy who doesnt move very well. Come to think of it, I may be hard to spot among all those replacement officials. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

W e keep hearing about various people analyzing why the school tax levies failed in the recent primary election. To us, its not a complicated thing. First, people dont want more taxes period. You can justify the tax as much as you want, but a lot of folks dont want a tax increase, no matter how small. Second, the School Board made a mistake in rushing this proposal on the ballot in August, because members wanted the money faster. It should have been voted on in November. Lets look at these two reasons. Nobody likes more taxes. There are too many things working against the schools when this happens. The funding for programs failed by a relatively narrow margin apparently more people understood that this vote directly affected what the students learn, what activities they have access to, such as art and music, and this one might have passed if it were on its own. But its apparent from the vote totals that the other choice, for improvements, dragged it down. People see things such as the West Port and Forest high school campuses, which look more like small colleges, and they wonder why in the world money is needed for capital improvements. Even a drive by Hammett Bowen and Liberty Middle provide a look at modern, up-todate facilities. Unfortunately, not all school buildings are in as good condition as some of these facilities, and the children in those areas need help in bringing their buildings up to speed. The schools needed to do a much better selling job on this amendment, and did not do so. Many of the backers chose the doom-and-gloom scenario if it failed, and the public didnt take too kindly to that. Along the campaign trail, we constantly heard how there were too many administrators, and that funds could be saved there. The people werent buying the need for more taxes. Then there was the timing. There were questions raised when this was put on the ballot for the primary. Some felt that the Board was trying to take advantage of having a lot of people out of town in August when the vote was held, but officials said it was necessary to make the funding available earlier. As it turned out, the anti-tax forces turned out for this election, where they may have been outnumbered when November came. The questions turned out to be valid it couldnt pass in August. So now we will read about how programs will be cut and schools will not get fixed. But somehow education will go on. But if it turns out that our schools do need more money, lets hope that officials do a better job of presenting the facts to the voters whenever this comes up again. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY School taxes: Why they failed Is it time to dig out that old whistle? Jim Flynn Columnist An afternoon at the movies with Barack Obama Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Truth check on sonogramsAmid all the verbiage concerning the use of sonograms before abortion, not once has this writer heard any member of the opposition to sonograms tell the truth about the use of sonograms. These supporters of abortion will say: (1) Women should not be forced to have a service that would add cost to the procedure, or (2) women should not have to view a sonogram in order to have the procedure, or (3) forcing women to view a sonogram before the abortion procedure is a violation of her civil rights. There are many other objections to sonograms by such persons but they are too numerous to list here. Whether or not any of these persons speaking out against sonograms knows the truth or not must be left up to someone else to decide. Most opinions are that they know the truth but prefer using their own personal spin in order to condemn the use of sonograms prior to abortion. It is well known by the pro-abortion community that when a pregnant woman sees a sonogram of her unborn child, she is most apt to not abort. Sonograms have seriously cut into abortion profits. The truth is: (1) Abortionists have always used the sonogram as a tool in the procedure a sonogram shows the abortionist the position, the actual size, and the placement of the fetus. This advance information makes for a less timely procedure. (2) Every woman who has had an abortion in the past several years has had a sonogram produced before the abortion. (3) The cost of this sonogram is now, and has always been, included in the complete price of the procedure. Therefore, it is a total falsehood that now women will be charged additionally for sonograms. (4) Abortionists have always known the effectiveness of sonograms, so until laws were PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE9 are required. Be sure to see Geri soon as these events are quickly sold out.

Ritz House Food Drive Thursday, Oct. 11, the Veterans Club is asking all of our residents to donate to the Ritz House for Veterans Food Drive. Everyone knows that the price of food is going up all the time and we know too that asking you to pick up a few things extra is a hardship. In spite of this, we are asking that each resident put a bag at the curb on the 11th with non-perishable food stuff; cleaning supplies; paper products or similar items that can be used by our Veterans at Ritz House. Ritz House is a home to assist Veterans who are transitioning from alcohol or drug abuse; homelessness and destitution. They are provided with a clean room; counseling; programs and support and in return, they cook all of their own meals and clean the facility. These Veterans are working hard at restoring the lives and they can use all the help we can give them. If you can pick up a couple of extra cans at the grocery store or dollar store; put them in a bag at curbside on the 11th, you will help a needy vet and it wont be too painful at the check out stand. Note we will also be collecting at the craft show on the 13th.SECO to Speak On Oct. 4 at 2 p.m., the Cherrywood Veterans Club is featuring a representative from SECO to be the guest speaker. This meeting will be open to all Cherrywood residents to hear this important information about our electrical service. You need not be a veteran or spouse to attend this meeting. On Nov. 1, Marion County Metro Crime Prevention is going to giving a presentation on identity theft, new scams and similar threats to seniors, so this meeting too will be open to the public. More than just serving the veterans of Cherrywood, the Veterans Club is here to serve all of our residents whenever possible in gratitude for their support. Make it a point to come to these two meetings and gain insight into the services that are available and the threats we face.

On Saturday of Labor Day weekend my daughter Kim was critically injured in a motorcycle accident up in Michigan. She was in intensive care and faces a long recovery. For that reason, my time was totally occupied and I was unable to do a proper interview for a Spotlight subject. Thanks to the answered prayers of family and friends; the expert medical care she is receiving and the expertise of the EMTs, she is making progress. We thank God that she is still with us and are hopeful that while it will be a long process, she will have a complete recovery. On a personal note, I would encourage all of you who ride motorcycles to please wear your helmets. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 No matter how long or short the trip, things can happen in a split second that can be life changing and life threatening. Again, I would like to express my deep appreciation to all of you, especially my Cherrywood family, for your prayers; your love and your good wishes.

Now the woman has a choice to view or not to view it is her call. The Florida sonogram law, effective as of July 1, 2011, requires the abortionist to show and explain to you a visual image of the fetus. If you do not choose to view the image or hear the explanation, you will be asked to sign documents stating that you were offered the opportunity and declined. Before this law was effective, you were forced to pay for a sonogram, but not allowed to view the image. As with any medical procedure the patient should have all available information and the sonogram will accommodate that important need. Mabel Ryan, President Life Education Ministry, Inc. Americas future in our hands According to some polls, Obama now has a 50 percent favorable rating, which is beyond my comprehension. There is NO way that many can be led astray by the liberal medias twisting facts regarding his dismal record as president. Our economy is the worst since the great depression, our debt exceeds 16 trillion dollars, more Americans are living in poverty, more on food stamps, home values have plummeted, multimillions unemployed, and the list goes on. As bad as this is, perhaps the worst thing he has done is to divide Americans, pitting one against the other, declaring war on honest successful citizens. He has championed more division among us than any time since the War Between The States. Every time a far left liberal Democrat opens his mouth he promotes class warfare as he blindly follows Obamas lead. I have addressed these particular issues in previous editorial letters with facts. We cant survive as a divided nation, but there are some who believe we are not exceptional and should lower our standard of living. They believe our success is only possible through taking advantage of others, as Obama shares in one of his books. We should salute any American who can be a great financial success, fulfilling the American dream. Successful people provide needed jobs and these private sector jobs are the financial backbone of our country. We are a country of opportunity and winners, lets keep it that way! At least many of his supporters now admit he is the least qualified president we have ever elected and cant get the job done. Obama stated that this election is about what direction America is to take, and if you want to continue on his collision course you will vote for him again. I cant believe the majority LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 of us want his vision of America, but if we do, America will cease to exist as we know it. Think before you vote, our future depends on it! Pray that God will not withhold his blessings from us, but if we keep moving away from him, are we giving him a choice? Wayne Rackley Ocala A different ball gameOn average, we seniors have voted in about 15 presidential elections ... some more crucial than others. But the issues in each were based on two fundamentals: God, and our Constitution. The coming election is a whole different ball game. Republicans continue to base their platform on these two principles. The current administration, however, is basing theirs on something that was never envisioned by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution. This administration excluded God from their DNC platform, then, at the last minute under pressure decided to put God back in. God is not a car option or menu side dish one can choose or not choose at will; God is the guiding principle of our lives. They have, on many occasions, bypassed the Constitution when enacting their legislation. This administration seems to be governing in pretty much any way it wants ... without regard to God or the Constitution. The Nov. 6 presidential election will be the most important one ever. The two choices are clear: another term of a ruined economy, continued joblessness, higher taxes, an ineffectual administration, or, a government that will get America back on the right track by creating much needed jobs, fixing our broken economy, and restoring prosperity to all of the people ... with a strong emphasis on God and our Constitution. We definitely are not better off then we were four years ago, and, if the current administration wins re-election, well be in even worse shape four years from now. Joe OHara Ocala Health responsibility Make no mistake; socalled health care in America is not about curing anything. It is only about managing many different kinds of symptoms (that a person may experience at a given time) that have been conveniently named and classified for usfrom a sore throat and runny nose to aches and pains (arthritis), to cardiovascular issues, osteoporosis, cancer, diabetes, AIDS, etc. Symptom management includes cutting the body (surgery), burning the body (radiation), and/or ingesting very powerful drugs that in most cases create far more problems than they ever solve. This isnt working; people are very sick; and people are leaving the planet way too early. Those who are not healthy, who want to be healthy, and believe that they can be healthy have got to begin to take complete responsibility for their life and everything in it including all dis-ease in any form. Dis-ease means when the body is not at ease. Symptoms can be uncomfortable yes, but symptoms (all of thema runny nose or cancer) are the result of the body trying to handle something. And because many dont yet get what symptoms really are they refuse to allow their body to do its job. Many are on auto-pilot rushing off to take a pill to relieve (control) every symptom because they want to make it stop to feel better. BUT when they do that they are just shutting down their immune systemthe bodys ability to do its job which is to keep us healthy.

Control of your life Then they will be satisfied D.I. Larson Ocala RELIGION PLEASESEERELIGION PAGE15 of pushing this button and pushing that button I had on the other end of the phone a very pleasant and cheerful voice, a representative of the IRS. After we exchanged some personal niceties and followed up on the weather report from each of our locations, we finally got down to the real business of the phone call. I must confess I was not expecting such pleasantries from an IRS agent. I assumed she had the telephone in one hand and a loaded, fully cocked revolver in the other. If she did, she concealed it most admirably. Then we got down to the nitty-gritty of what the IRS is all about: collecting taxes from potentially delinquent taxpayers, like myself. The thought that I deliberately was delinquent was rather humiliating for me. Simply put, I just did not pay enough in, but this telephone call was going to rectify all of that. After she crunched all the figures and as I waited patiently on my end of the phone, she was able to determine I owed the government an arm and a leg. It was then that the negotiations began in earnest. I must confess she could not have been any nicer had she been my grandmother. She then began to query as to which arm and which leg I was going to give to the government. This presented a real difficult decision on my part. Throughout the years, I have grown quite fond of both arms and both legs. Then I asked her if I could counter a proposal. She replied in the affirmative. Would you consider, I began rather slowly, an arm OR a leg? There was a pause on the other and of the phone when I could tell she was thinking. Whenever you get a government employee to think, watch out. I could hear the old wheels grinding and grinding. Finally, she said, I think that would be acceptable. And, Ill even allow you to select either arm or leg. We like to work with people. Now the burden was on me. I now owed the government an arm OR a leg and I just had to select which one. I first considered my arms. In thinking about them, I use both of my arms although the left one less than the right one every day. What with writing and eating my arms are rather busy throughout the day. Then I considered my legs. I like my right leg and so the choice became rather easy for me. Now, the United States government has at least one leg to stand on, thanks to Yours Truly. I have something greater to stand on. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage (Galatians 5:1 KJV). Jesus Christ trumps Uncle Sam when it comes to liberty.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

All are welcome. RELIGION CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 I often hear derogatory remarks directed toward the IRS. I must admit that many of these critical remarks originated with me. Not that I do not like my good old Uncle Sam, it is that he is a little demanding when it comes to tax time. Every year I complain about filing my income tax and paying out gobs and gobs of dollars to the United States government. I know it is important to pay taxes, and, I pay my fair share even though it may be grudgingly. Throughout the years, I have complained that dear old Uncle Sam never writes me a letter. I will have to amend that complaint because I recently received a personalized letter from the IRS. Well, you can imagine my surprise at getting this letter. With trembling hands, I opened the letter, anxious to know what was going on in the world of Uncle Sam. I expected a detailed letter of what he was doing and how he was getting along and how the kids were and all that sort of thing. Imagine my surprise when none of that information was contained in the letter. From the contents of the letter, and I must say a lot of it was goobly glop, I had fallen far short of my share of income tax this past year. According to the letter, I was a gazillion dollars short of what he had expected from me and quite frankly, he was disappointed in this behavior on my part. Do not ask me how many zeros a gazillion dollars have because I do not know. I do not have that many fingers or toes. Although I read the letter several times it was not quite clear how much I actually owed and what plans there were in place for me to pay it back. From what I could understand from the letter, I owed good old Uncle Sam an arm and a leg, and he was highly expecting that I would come through for him. Well, that kind of letter did not set well with me. I was tempted to leave the country, then sneak back as an illegal alien, and not have to worry about all this nasty stuff. But, I did not have that much energy available. There was a phone number I was to call if I had any personal questions. Boy, did I have some personal questions. I was fully expecting not to get a real human voice when I called. But, again, I was pleasantly surprised. Within 30 minutes and after dozens Who says the IRS is mean and nasty?

Marion Landing shows its appreciation to community volunteers each month by recognizing residents who have made significant contributions to our community. At the Sept. 4 Tuesday Social, Carolyn Cockerham was presented with a Volunteer Recognition Award by Charlie Mock, Board 2nd Vice President. The following is Charlies presentation: The year is 2003 and this resident started a nine year career of volunteerism to make Marion Landing one of the finest homeowner associations on the State Road 200 corridor. This homeowner has been active in the following events: chairing and coordinating several dances, including the Halloween dance; overseeing and directing several pool parties, including the Labor Day pool party; chairing the February Cabin Fever dance; and organizing the volleyball banquet which included the presentation of a delicious sheet cake. For three years, this volunteer was the captain in charge of all the volleyball activities in the pool. This individual has accomplished all of these tasks in a positive and helpful manner and drives a mean golf cart. So it is my distinct pleasure to introduce our newest member to the long list of honored volunteers, Carolyn Cockerham. Carolyns engraved plaque will join the more than 147 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents who are nominated for the award by their peers. If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a Board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director. Craft Fair Jump start your holiday shopping season at Marion Landings fall Craft Fair, which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Lifestyle Center. There will be 30 plus tables set up with crafters selling a variety of handcrafted items including jewelry, handbags, shell art, macram plant hangers, mosaic wall hangings, floral arrangements, quilts, paintings, beautiful lighted wine bottles and glass blocks, and assorted holiday decorations. We hope everyone will come down on Saturday, Oct. 13, and join us. Its fun to see all the different projects, and we appreciate the communitys support of our local crafters, said Merry Anne Krell, Craft Fair chairperson. We will also be selling coffee, donuts and Danish in the morning; hot dogs and beverages for lunch. The Marion Landing Lifestyle Center is located on Southwest 65th Avenue Road, just off State Road 200 across from Queen of Peace Catholic Church.

The show dates are Feb. 8 to 10.Softball There is some anxiety going on with the Wiseway team since it has lost some key players. Gone for the rest of the season is Angelo, their pitcher, who injured himself while playing tennis. Also out for an undetermined period is Jimmy, the player-coach who will be out for personal reasons and their shortstop, Donny, due to medical reasons. With the loss of these three important players, it makes the team a vulnerable and weaker team. Luckily, the team was able to pick up a couple of substitutes who helped to beat their closest rival, the young and quick Stone Creek players, but it was a squeaker which went into extra innings. The Wiseway team will have to hope they can continue to get good substitutes for the upcoming games, and they need three more wins before they can claim the championship. It may be difficult to catch the Wiseway team, but it is now a bit handicapped, and the young Stone Creek Team is hoping to get some wins and catch the ailing leader. The Central Florida Eye team has fallen apart and headed toward the basement with loss after loss. The one good thing is that the Cebert Wealth team is deep in the basement, although they have been playing well lately with four wins and only two losses in their last six games. Its too late, though, for Cebert Wealth and the teams best hope is to try to bypass the Central Florida Eye team. SOFTBALL STANDINGS 1-Wiseway-Jimmy 20-9 4-Stone Creek16-13 3-Fla.

This traditional German celebration is known the world over for its music; food and even a little beer drinking. Cherrywood is ready to join in the fun on Monday, Sept. 24, keeping with all those traditions. At 5:30 dinner of German Bratwurst with all the fixings will be served. Dessert and drinks of lemonade and iced tea will also be available. To keep things truly German, guests are allowed to bring their own beverages, so use your imagination. Northern Sounds will provide the music that will include polkas and German folk dances as well as old favorites to entertain and encourage those who like to dance. We have some pretty good dancers here at Cherrywood and it will be great to see their moves to the upbeat tempos of this locally favorite band. Tickets are necessary so be sure to see Geri as soon as you can. These tickets are of course free to residents thanks to Chris and the Cherrywood Property Management. Guest tickets are $12 each and Geri can provide those also. Your admittance ticket also qualifies you for the door prize so dont miss out on this fun night. Last month we had a record turn out of 250 people and it would be fantastic if we could beat that this month. Theres lots of room in clubhouse; the patio; the picnic area and even pool side so dont hesitate to take advantage of this chance to celebrate Octoberfest with your friends and neighbors.

show and dinner fundraiser. The community has been terrific in supporting Sunshine and always enjoy these events, said Janice Wood, Sunshine Fundraising chairperson. The tropical menu will be provided by My Sonss Catering of Ocala; they always do a great job with food and service. This is a sold-out event, so if youve already purchased your tickets, come down to the Lifestyle Center on Saturday; doors open at 5 p.m. Tuesdays speakerLori Timmreck, Owner of All About You Womens Boutique will be here on Tuesday, Sept. 18, after the Social to tell us about the products and services her store offers and the support they provide to those affected by breast cancer. If youre someone who has been touched by breast cancer or knows someone who has breast cancer, plan on staying after the Social to learn more about the store, the staff and how they can help women through this most difficult time. Blood drive Much of todays medical care depends on a steady supply of blood from healthy donors, and this Wednesday, Sept. 19, you can help. This is the day the Big Red Bus will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. to collect donations for Floridas Blood Centers, the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. In the U.S. and Canada, more than 4.5 million patients need blood transfusions each year; and 43,000 pints of donated blood are used each day. Someone needs blood every two seconds, and just one pint of blood can save up to three lives. However, most donated red blood cells can only be stored for 42 days, most donated platelets can be stored for five days, and frozen plasma can be stored for one year. That why its imperative that we replenish our available blood supply by donating to our local blood bank. You can donate blood even if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, and you only need be cancer-free for one year. And donating blood not only helps others, but is beneficial to yourself, as well. Thats according to a study published by the American Medical Association that found that giving blood every six months led to fewer heart attacks and strokes in test participants. And according to www.bloodcenters.org, excessive iron is thought to contribute to heart disease, especially at its early stages. Donating blood on a regular basis reduces the iron stored in the body, and this study supports the theory that reducing iron appears to preserve heart and vascular health. Our blood drive coordinator Pat Wurst tells us that if you donate blood every other month, your body replenishes its own blood supply with fresh blood, and you may reduce your risk of heart attack by as much as 70 percent. These facts alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on Sept. 19. Sign up on the sheet hanging on the activity wall, or see Pat and her volunteers in the lobby the day the bus is here. Remember to eat something before you donate, drink plenty of fluid and bring a photo I.D. with you. We hope we can depend on you! One-stroke painting classWe welcome back Debbie Blackburn who will be here on Monday, Sept. 24, to teach a One-Stroke Painting class.

The class will be held from 9AM-noon, and experienced as well as novice Marion Landing painters are invited. The cost is $35, which includes instruction and supplies, but Debbie asks that you please bring your own paper towels. The sign-up sheet is posted on the Activity Wall, and pre-payment is required the week before the class. Stop by the Activities Office to see the sample of the painted vase. Bowling beginsMarion Landing league bowling began last week and teams have been scheduled for the upcoming season. There are four leagues, three of which are sanctioned leagues; and 9 Pin No Tap bowls on Wednesday mornings. Bowling is one of the most popular activities in the community, and is open to residents only. If youre interested in joining a league or being available as a sub, please call one of the league secretaries, Dick Blanck or Merle Gaugler. Shuffleboard matchAbby Litchert reports that the evening shuffleboard challenges have been so popular that hes scheduled another match for Sunday evening, Sept. 23, at 7 p.m. Tradition dictates that its the men vs. the women; and although the men have been holding onto their lead, the women are not far behind.

show and dinner fundraiser. The community has been terrific in supporting Sunshine and always enjoy these events, said Janice Wood, Sunshine Fundraising chairperson. The tropical menu will be provided by My Sonss Catering of Ocala; they always do a great job with food and service. This is a sold-out event, so if youve already purchased your tickets, come down to the Lifestyle Center on Saturday; doors open at 5 p.m. Tuesdays speakerLori Timmreck, Owner of All About You Womens Boutique will be here on Tuesday, Sept. 18, after the Social to tell us about the products and services her store offers and the support they provide to those affected by breast cancer. If youre someone who has been touched by breast cancer or knows someone who has breast cancer, plan on staying after the Social to learn more about the store, the staff and how they can help women through this most difficult time. Blood drive Much of todays medical care depends on a steady supply of blood from healthy donors, and this Wednesday, Sept. 19, you can help. This is the day the Big Red Bus will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. to collect donations for Floridas Blood Centers, the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. In the U.S. and Canada, more than 4.5 million patients need blood transfusions each year; and 43,000 pints of donated blood are used each day. Someone needs blood every two seconds, and just one pint of blood can save up to three lives. However, most donated red blood cells can only be stored for 42 days, most donated platelets can be stored for five days, and frozen plasma can be stored for one year. That why its imperative that we replenish our available blood supply by donating to our local blood bank. You can donate blood even if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, and you only need be cancer-free for one year. And donating blood not only helps others, but is beneficial to yourself, as well. Thats according to a study published by the American Medical Association that found that giving blood every six months led to fewer heart attacks and strokes in test participants. And according to www.bloodcenters.org, excessive iron is thought to contribute to heart disease, especially at its early stages. Donating blood on a regular basis reduces the iron stored in the body, and this study supports the theory that reducing iron appears to preserve heart and vascular health. Our blood drive coordinator Pat Wurst tells us that if you donate blood every other month, your body replenishes its own blood supply with fresh blood, and you may reduce your risk of heart attack by as much as 70 percent. These facts alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on Sept. 19. Sign up on the sheet hanging on the activity wall, or see Pat and her volunteers in the lobby the day the bus is here. Remember to eat something before you donate, drink plenty of fluid and bring a photo I.D. with you. We hope we can depend on you! One-stroke painting classWe welcome back Debbie Blackburn who will be here on Monday, Sept. 24, to teach a One-Stroke Painting class.

Marion Landing shows its appreciation to community volunteers each month by recognizing residents who have made significant contributions to our community. At the Sept. 4 Tuesday Social, Carolyn Cockerham was presented with a Volunteer Recognition Award by Charlie Mock, Board 2nd Vice President. The following is Charlies presentation: The year is 2003 and this resident started a nine year career of volunteerism to make Marion Landing one of the finest homeowner associations on the State Road 200 corridor. This homeowner has been active in the following events: chairing and coordinating several dances, including the Halloween dance; overseeing and directing several pool parties, including the Labor Day pool party; chairing the February Cabin Fever dance; and organizing the volleyball banquet which included the presentation of a delicious sheet cake. For three years, this volunteer was the captain in charge of all the volleyball activities in the pool. This individual has accomplished all of these tasks in a positive and helpful manner and drives a mean golf cart. So it is my distinct pleasure to introduce our newest member to the long list of honored volunteers, Carolyn Cockerham. Carolyns engraved plaque will join the more than 147 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents who are nominated for the award by their peers. If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a Board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director.

The show dates are Feb. 8 to 10.Softball There is some anxiety going on with the Wiseway team since it has lost some key players. Gone for the rest of the season is Angelo, their pitcher, who injured himself while playing tennis. Also out for an undetermined period is Jimmy, the player-coach who will be out for personal reasons and their shortstop, Donny, due to medical reasons. With the loss of these three important players, it makes the team a vulnerable and weaker team. Luckily, the team was able to pick up a couple of substitutes who helped to beat their closest rival, the young and quick Stone Creek players, but it was a squeaker which went into extra innings. The Wiseway team will have to hope they can continue to get good substitutes for the upcoming games, and they need three more wins before they can claim the championship. It may be difficult to catch the Wiseway team, but it is now a bit handicapped, and the young Stone Creek Team is hoping to get some wins and catch the ailing leader. The Central Florida Eye team has fallen apart and headed toward the basement with loss after loss. The one good thing is that the Cebert Wealth team is deep in the basement, although they have been playing well lately with four wins and only two losses in their last six games. Its too late, though, for Cebert Wealth and the teams best hope is to try to bypass the Central Florida Eye team. SOFTBALL STANDINGS 1-Wiseway-Jimmy 20-9 4-Stone Creek16-13 3-Fla.

This traditional German celebration is known the world over for its music; food and even a little beer drinking. Cherrywood is ready to join in the fun on Monday, Sept. 24, keeping with all those traditions. At 5:30 dinner of German Bratwurst with all the fixings will be served. Dessert and drinks of lemonade and iced tea will also be available. To keep things truly German, guests are allowed to bring their own beverages, so use your imagination. Northern Sounds will provide the music that will include polkas and German folk dances as well as old favorites to entertain and encourage those who like to dance. We have some pretty good dancers here at Cherrywood and it will be great to see their moves to the upbeat tempos of this locally favorite band. Tickets are necessary so be sure to see Geri as soon as you can. These tickets are of course free to residents thanks to Chris and the Cherrywood Property Management. Guest tickets are $12 each and Geri can provide those also. Your admittance ticket also qualifies you for the door prize so dont miss out on this fun night. Last month we had a record turn out of 250 people and it would be fantastic if we could beat that this month. Theres lots of room in clubhouse; the patio; the picnic area and even pool side so dont hesitate to take advantage of this chance to celebrate Octoberfest with your friends and neighbors.

All are welcome. RELIGION CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 I often hear derogatory remarks directed toward the IRS. I must admit that many of these critical remarks originated with me. Not that I do not like my good old Uncle Sam, it is that he is a little demanding when it comes to tax time. Every year I complain about filing my income tax and paying out gobs and gobs of dollars to the United States government. I know it is important to pay taxes, and, I pay my fair share even though it may be grudgingly. Throughout the years, I have complained that dear old Uncle Sam never writes me a letter. I will have to amend that complaint because I recently received a personalized letter from the IRS. Well, you can imagine my surprise at getting this letter. With trembling hands, I opened the letter, anxious to know what was going on in the world of Uncle Sam. I expected a detailed letter of what he was doing and how he was getting along and how the kids were and all that sort of thing. Imagine my surprise when none of that information was contained in the letter. From the contents of the letter, and I must say a lot of it was goobly glop, I had fallen far short of my share of income tax this past year. According to the letter, I was a gazillion dollars short of what he had expected from me and quite frankly, he was disappointed in this behavior on my part. Do not ask me how many zeros a gazillion dollars have because I do not know. I do not have that many fingers or toes. Although I read the letter several times it was not quite clear how much I actually owed and what plans there were in place for me to pay it back. From what I could understand from the letter, I owed good old Uncle Sam an arm and a leg, and he was highly expecting that I would come through for him. Well, that kind of letter did not set well with me. I was tempted to leave the country, then sneak back as an illegal alien, and not have to worry about all this nasty stuff. But, I did not have that much energy available. There was a phone number I was to call if I had any personal questions. Boy, did I have some personal questions. I was fully expecting not to get a real human voice when I called. But, again, I was pleasantly surprised. Within 30 minutes and after dozens Who says the IRS is mean and nasty?

Now the woman has a choice to view or not to view it is her call. The Florida sonogram law, effective as of July 1, 2011, requires the abortionist to show and explain to you a visual image of the fetus. If you do not choose to view the image or hear the explanation, you will be asked to sign documents stating that you were offered the opportunity and declined. Before this law was effective, you were forced to pay for a sonogram, but not allowed to view the image. As with any medical procedure the patient should have all available information and the sonogram will accommodate that important need. Mabel Ryan, President Life Education Ministry, Inc. Americas future in our hands According to some polls, Obama now has a 50 percent favorable rating, which is beyond my comprehension. There is NO way that many can be led astray by the liberal medias twisting facts regarding his dismal record as president. Our economy is the worst since the great depression, our debt exceeds 16 trillion dollars, more Americans are living in poverty, more on food stamps, home values have plummeted, multimillions unemployed, and the list goes on. As bad as this is, perhaps the worst thing he has done is to divide Americans, pitting one against the other, declaring war on honest successful citizens. He has championed more division among us than any time since the War Between The States. Every time a far left liberal Democrat opens his mouth he promotes class warfare as he blindly follows Obamas lead. I have addressed these particular issues in previous editorial letters with facts. We cant survive as a divided nation, but there are some who believe we are not exceptional and should lower our standard of living. They believe our success is only possible through taking advantage of others, as Obama shares in one of his books. We should salute any American who can be a great financial success, fulfilling the American dream. Successful people provide needed jobs and these private sector jobs are the financial backbone of our country. We are a country of opportunity and winners, lets keep it that way! At least many of his supporters now admit he is the least qualified president we have ever elected and cant get the job done. Obama stated that this election is about what direction America is to take, and if you want to continue on his collision course you will vote for him again. I cant believe the majority LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 of us want his vision of America, but if we do, America will cease to exist as we know it. Think before you vote, our future depends on it! Pray that God will not withhold his blessings from us, but if we keep moving away from him, are we giving him a choice? Wayne Rackley Ocala A different ball gameOn average, we seniors have voted in about 15 presidential elections ... some more crucial than others. But the issues in each were based on two fundamentals: God, and our Constitution. The coming election is a whole different ball game. Republicans continue to base their platform on these two principles. The current administration, however, is basing theirs on something that was never envisioned by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution. This administration excluded God from their DNC platform, then, at the last minute under pressure decided to put God back in. God is not a car option or menu side dish one can choose or not choose at will; God is the guiding principle of our lives. They have, on many occasions, bypassed the Constitution when enacting their legislation. This administration seems to be governing in pretty much any way it wants ... without regard to God or the Constitution. The Nov. 6 presidential election will be the most important one ever. The two choices are clear: another term of a ruined economy, continued joblessness, higher taxes, an ineffectual administration, or, a government that will get America back on the right track by creating much needed jobs, fixing our broken economy, and restoring prosperity to all of the people ... with a strong emphasis on God and our Constitution. We definitely are not better off then we were four years ago, and, if the current administration wins re-election, well be in even worse shape four years from now. Joe OHara Ocala Health responsibility Make no mistake; socalled health care in America is not about curing anything. It is only about managing many different kinds of symptoms (that a person may experience at a given time) that have been conveniently named and classified for usfrom a sore throat and runny nose to aches and pains (arthritis), to cardiovascular issues, osteoporosis, cancer, diabetes, AIDS, etc. Symptom management includes cutting the body (surgery), burning the body (radiation), and/or ingesting very powerful drugs that in most cases create far more problems than they ever solve. This isnt working; people are very sick; and people are leaving the planet way too early. Those who are not healthy, who want to be healthy, and believe that they can be healthy have got to begin to take complete responsibility for their life and everything in it including all dis-ease in any form. Dis-ease means when the body is not at ease. Symptoms can be uncomfortable yes, but symptoms (all of thema runny nose or cancer) are the result of the body trying to handle something. And because many dont yet get what symptoms really are they refuse to allow their body to do its job. Many are on auto-pilot rushing off to take a pill to relieve (control) every symptom because they want to make it stop to feel better. BUT when they do that they are just shutting down their immune systemthe bodys ability to do its job which is to keep us healthy.

Larson Ocala RELIGION PLEASESEERELIGION PAGE15 of pushing this button and pushing that button I had on the other end of the phone a very pleasant and cheerful voice, a representative of the IRS. After we exchanged some personal niceties and followed up on the weather report from each of our locations, we finally got down to the real business of the phone call. I must confess I was not expecting such pleasantries from an IRS agent. I assumed she had the telephone in one hand and a loaded, fully cocked revolver in the other. If she did, she concealed it most admirably. Then we got down to the nitty-gritty of what the IRS is all about: collecting taxes from potentially delinquent taxpayers, like myself. The thought that I deliberately was delinquent was rather humiliating for me. Simply put, I just did not pay enough in, but this telephone call was going to rectify all of that. After she crunched all the figures and as I waited patiently on my end of the phone, she was able to determine I owed the government an arm and a leg. It was then that the negotiations began in earnest. I must confess she could not have been any nicer had she been my grandmother. She then began to query as to which arm and which leg I was going to give to the government. This presented a real difficult decision on my part. Throughout the years, I have grown quite fond of both arms and both legs. Then I asked her if I could counter a proposal. She replied in the affirmative. Would you consider, I began rather slowly, an arm OR a leg? There was a pause on the other and of the phone when I could tell she was thinking. Whenever you get a government employee to think, watch out. I could hear the old wheels grinding and grinding. Finally, she said, I think that would be acceptable. And, Ill even allow you to select either arm or leg. We like to work with people. Now the burden was on me. I now owed the government an arm OR a leg and I just had to select which one. I first considered my arms. In thinking about them, I use both of my arms although the left one less than the right one every day. What with writing and eating my arms are rather busy throughout the day. Then I considered my legs. I like my right leg and so the choice became rather easy for me. Now, the United States government has at least one leg to stand on, thanks to Yours Truly. I have something greater to stand on. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage (Galatians 5:1 KJV).

Friday, September 14, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com W e suffered through seemingly endless coming attractions in order to see Dinesh DSouzas much discussed documentary 2016: Obamas America. Weve read comments that its a vanity project, powerful stuff, propaganda, not a documentary, speculative, thoughtfully researched, et cetera. The producers are undoubtedly pleased that reviews have stimulated a continuing flow of paying customers and a theatre run that may win recognition as one of the best documentaries of all time We found nothing disturbing or frightening in the film comments weve heard from other viewers. Our impression is that the producers have vetted candidate Obama one election too late. In 2008, Republicans were too lazy, too cocky, or too intimidated by racial considerations to take a thorough look at the Democratic nominee for president. Instead of vetting candidate Obama, Republicans got tangled up in silly minutia, such as the mystery of his withheld birth certificate. Like the hoopla over Mr. Romneys tax returns, some dogs cant give up a smelly bone even though it has no meat on it. Both of Mr. Obamas books Dreams From My Father and The Audacity of Hope were available in 2008. They reveal Mr. Obamas America as he envisioned it then and sees it now. Since the end of the SpanishAmerican war (1898), Americas global influence has continued to grow in the name of world peace and commercial freedom. The underlying theme of 2016: Obamas America is that the President and his long-dead father have considered Americas worldwide influence a disguised remnant of colonialism, marred by the original sin of slavery. In The Audacity of Hope Mr. Obama said he is angry about national policies which favor the wealthy and powerful over average Americans, and that the majority of citizens are weary over the dead zone that American politics has become. He said plainly that his political mission is to begin a process of changing the politics and civic life of the nation. More specifically President Obama means reducing the more than 700 military installations America maintains at home and around the world, dedicating significant amounts of national wealth to saving the planet, stimulating domestic employment, and rearranging distribution of federal benefits. Mr. Obama admits modestly This isnt to say that I know exactly how to do it. I dont. He hopes he can complete changing the nation and the world in a second term. His goal is a socialistic democracy which distributes wealth compassionately and is not controlled or over influenced by commercial and military interests. Despite four years in the White House, Mr. Obama is an enigma to many Americans. For those who dont enjoy reading non-fiction biography, the movie 2016: Obamas America is an alternative. It draws a well-researched picture of his family background, his education, and his life journey. Its serious, but its not the scary movie some folks made it out to be. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, September 14, 2012 M aybe its time to go back to a career I once had. After viewing some football on television this past week, Ive decided I need to go back to being a football official. Of course, I only worked high school games, but I had 25 years of experience, and evidently that qualifies me to be one of the replacements in the National Football League. I watched the NFL this past weekend, locked into the Red Zone, a cable system channel that gives you highlight coverage of all games as they happen. I saw enough questionable officiating to make me go into the closet and dig for a whistle. The most egregious came on Sunday in the Denver vs. Pittsburgh game. Quarterback Peyton Manning of the Broncos suddenly went to a no-huddle offense, designed to catch the Steelers with too many men on the field. It worked. There was an extra player jogging off the field, right in front of an official. But that official had his back to the ball and had no clue that the ball had been snapped before the extra player got off the field. Its a basic fundamental: Watch the ball. The first call of the season was clipping, which resulted in a half-the-distance penalty. That happened last Wednesday. Unfortunately, the replay showed an average block in the back, a 10yard penalty. In fact, I didnt know they had clipping in the rule book any more. Its been years since Ive seen it called. There were some judgment calls that were questionable, but I learned a long time ago that judgment calls can look one way on TV and be entirely different in person. But not watching the ball? Thats inexcusable. Of course, football is not the only sport that has officiating problems. In a baseball game Saturday, the Yankees lost a chance to tie on the last play of the game when one of their players slid into first (never a smart thing) but was called out, even though replay showed he was obviously safe. But back to football. Its obvious they need me. Of course Im a bit older, cant see as well, have gained some weight over the years and cant run as fast as I used to. But other than those little things. I think Im perfectly qualified. So look for me next Sunday. Ill be the old guy who doesnt move very well. Come to think of it, I may be hard to spot among all those replacement officials. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

W e keep hearing about various people analyzing why the school tax levies failed in the recent primary election. To us, its not a complicated thing. First, people dont want more taxes period. You can justify the tax as much as you want, but a lot of folks dont want a tax increase, no matter how small. Second, the School Board made a mistake in rushing this proposal on the ballot in August, because members wanted the money faster. It should have been voted on in November. Lets look at these two reasons. Nobody likes more taxes. There are too many things working against the schools when this happens. The funding for programs failed by a relatively narrow margin apparently more people understood that this vote directly affected what the students learn, what activities they have access to, such as art and music, and this one might have passed if it were on its own. But its apparent from the vote totals that the other choice, for improvements, dragged it down. People see things such as the West Port and Forest high school campuses, which look more like small colleges, and they wonder why in the world money is needed for capital improvements. Even a drive by Hammett Bowen and Liberty Middle provide a look at modern, up-todate facilities. Unfortunately, not all school buildings are in as good condition as some of these facilities, and the children in those areas need help in bringing their buildings up to speed. The schools needed to do a much better selling job on this amendment, and did not do so. Many of the backers chose the doom-and-gloom scenario if it failed, and the public didnt take too kindly to that. Along the campaign trail, we constantly heard how there were too many administrators, and that funds could be saved there. The people werent buying the need for more taxes. Then there was the timing. There were questions raised when this was put on the ballot for the primary. Some felt that the Board was trying to take advantage of having a lot of people out of town in August when the vote was held, but officials said it was necessary to make the funding available earlier. As it turned out, the anti-tax forces turned out for this election, where they may have been outnumbered when November came. The questions turned out to be valid it couldnt pass in August. So now we will read about how programs will be cut and schools will not get fixed. But somehow education will go on. But if it turns out that our schools do need more money, lets hope that officials do a better job of presenting the facts to the voters whenever this comes up again. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY School taxes: Why they failed Is it time to dig out that old whistle? Jim Flynn Columnist An afternoon at the movies with Barack Obama Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Truth check on sonogramsAmid all the verbiage concerning the use of sonograms before abortion, not once has this writer heard any member of the opposition to sonograms tell the truth about the use of sonograms. These supporters of abortion will say: (1) Women should not be forced to have a service that would add cost to the procedure, or (2) women should not have to view a sonogram in order to have the procedure, or (3) forcing women to view a sonogram before the abortion procedure is a violation of her civil rights. There are many other objections to sonograms by such persons but they are too numerous to list here. Whether or not any of these persons speaking out against sonograms knows the truth or not must be left up to someone else to decide. Most opinions are that they know the truth but prefer using their own personal spin in order to condemn the use of sonograms prior to abortion. It is well known by the pro-abortion community that when a pregnant woman sees a sonogram of her unborn child, she is most apt to not abort. Sonograms have seriously cut into abortion profits. The truth is: (1) Abortionists have always used the sonogram as a tool in the procedure a sonogram shows the abortionist the position, the actual size, and the placement of the fetus. This advance information makes for a less timely procedure. (2) Every woman who has had an abortion in the past several years has had a sonogram produced before the abortion. (3) The cost of this sonogram is now, and has always been, included in the complete price of the procedure. Therefore, it is a total falsehood that now women will be charged additionally for sonograms. (4) Abortionists have always known the effectiveness of sonograms, so until laws were PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE9 are required. Be sure to see Geri soon as these events are quickly sold out.

Ritz House Food Drive Thursday, Oct. 11, the Veterans Club is asking all of our residents to donate to the Ritz House for Veterans Food Drive. Everyone knows that the price of food is going up all the time and we know too that asking you to pick up a few things extra is a hardship. In spite of this, we are asking that each resident put a bag at the curb on the 11th with non-perishable food stuff; cleaning supplies; paper products or similar items that can be used by our Veterans at Ritz House. Ritz House is a home to assist Veterans who are transitioning from alcohol or drug abuse; homelessness and destitution. They are provided with a clean room; counseling; programs and support and in return, they cook all of their own meals and clean the facility. These Veterans are working hard at restoring the lives and they can use all the help we can give them. If you can pick up a couple of extra cans at the grocery store or dollar store; put them in a bag at curbside on the 11th, you will help a needy vet and it wont be too painful at the check out stand. Note we will also be collecting at the craft show on the 13th.SECO to Speak On Oct. 4 at 2 p.m., the Cherrywood Veterans Club is featuring a representative from SECO to be the guest speaker.

More than just serving the veterans of Cherrywood, the Veterans Club is here to serve all of our residents whenever possible in gratitude for their support. Make it a point to come to these two meetings and gain insight into the services that are available and the threats we face.

On Saturday of Labor Day weekend my daughter Kim was critically injured in a motorcycle accident up in Michigan. She was in intensive care and faces a long recovery. For that reason, my time was totally occupied and I was unable to do a proper interview for a Spotlight subject. Thanks to the answered prayers of family and friends; the expert medical care she is receiving and the expertise of the EMTs, she is making progress. We thank God that she is still with us and are hopeful that while it will be a long process, she will have a complete recovery. On a personal note, I would encourage all of you who ride motorcycles to please wear your helmets. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 No matter how long or short the trip, things can happen in a split second that can be life changing and life threatening.

Do You Remember?Tune in channel 12 for Len Teitlers presentation of Way Off Broadways The Making of Oklahoma, narrated by Anna Boodee. The program will air following FYI daily at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. from Sept. 14 to 21. Way Off BroadwayWay Off Broadways October production of Squad Room Blues is turning out to be the belly busting funny farce it was patterned after, the long running TV sitcom, Barney Miller staring Hal Linden and a whole host of equally funny actors. One of the funniest roles in the play is the part of a woman with a guilt complex played by Clara Laskay who made her Oak Run debut as a cook in St Louis at the Fair. Her first lines as she enters the squad room, bent on being arrested, are It doesnt matter. Im guilty. Im always guilty. Arrest me. Sentence me. I deserve it. Her lines get more hilarious as the play develops. Then we have a lunatic played by Wendy Panacek who thinks he is from the planet Mars, his brain is a two-way radio and the end of the world was yesterday. He comes and goes, in and out of captivity and he just gets wackier as they try to throw a butterfly net over him. When the funny lines subside some great musical numbers take over. There is never a dull moment. We have a share of romance too when our Detectives Grant, Marci Hutto, and Strindberg, Ray Balliet, are locked in an embrace, caught and threatened by the janitor, Mary Walker, with exposure and possible expulsion from the squad room. Well, we cant give away the plot but you will really be missing something if you dont come see the play. Remember, if you cannot make it to one of the public ticket sales contact a member of WOB or call Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 either of whom will see that you get tickets. Again, the best reserved seats sell out fast so dont delay.Tuesday is bingo nightJoin your friends and neighbors for bingo every Tuesday at the Orchid Club.

But youll have to present some hard facts and figures if you hope to persuade those who make the big decisions to support you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Keep those bright Bulls eyes focused on the project at hand. Avoid distractions. Therell be lots of time for fun and games later. Expect to get welcome news this weekend. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You soon might have to decide about moving a relationship from its current status to another level. Dont let anyone influence your decision. It must be yours and yours alone.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Its a good time to take a stand and show as much passion on your own behalf as you do when arguing for the rights of others. You might be happily surprised by the reaction. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You bring sense and sensitivity to a confusing situation. Things soon settle down, leaving you free to enjoy a weekend of fun and relaxation with friends and family.

Friday, September 14, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, September 14, 2012 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISE Call 854-3986 ADVERTISING O n this date in 1948, Milton Berle started his TV career as the host of Tuesdays evening Texaco Star Theater. He was the first major American television star and was so popular that fewer movie tickets were sold on Tuesdays and some theaters, restaurants and other businesses shut down for the hour or closed for the evening. During Berles career of nearly 70 years, he collected more than 10,000 jokes from vaudeville, radio, television and film. Our travels down Pun Alley have found some of them for you. High flyingA man felt so sick that he decided to go to a famous medical clinic three thousand miles from home. He was given a battery of tests, the total cost of which was in the thousands. Twelve specialists agreed on a diagnosis. The man was told that he was in excellent health, but his blood pressure was too high. The man flew back to his home city and hailed a cab. As they rode, the man said to the driver that hed just completed a physical. Before he could explain the results, the cabdriver said, You look to be in excellent health, except maybe your blood pressure is too high. Hillbilly livingA 40-year-old hillbilly carried a younger hillbilly into the doctors office, deposited him on the examining table, and said, See if you can patch him up soon. I shot up his rear end like it was a tail on a possum. Dont hurt him none, because hes my son-inlaw. The doctor said, Why would you shoot your sonin-law? The hillbilly said, He wasnt my son-in-law when I shot him! Later, two hillbillies met and started to converse. One said, I got a darn mule with the fits. What did you give your mule when it had the fits? The other hillbilly said, I gave him a mixture of turpentine and kerosene. The next day the hillbillies met again. The first one said, I gave my mule some of that turpentine and kerosene. The mixture killed him. The other one said, Killed mine too. Quips We owe a lot to Thomas Edison; if it wasnt for him, wed be watching television by candlelight. I went to a parachutejumping class. The dropout rate was incredible. The company accountant is shy and retiring. Hes shy a quarter of a million dollars. Thats why hes retiring. A baker quit making donuts because he got tired of the hole thing. A committee is a group that keeps minutes and loses hours. If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands? I just got a brand new pill from my doctor. It has nothing but side effects. You can lead a man to Congress, but you cant make him think. A good wife always forgives her husband when shes wrong. If flowers dont talk back to you, are they mums? I know why Superman left Krypton. Earth was the only place where he could get steroids. He must be a good gardener. He and his plants are both potted. A man told a co-worker, I cant break my wife of the habit of staying up till five in the morning. What is she doing? the co-worker asked. Waiting for me to get home. VegasWhen Berle arrived to do shows in Las Vegas, he saw that some of the hotels are gigantic, more like cities than hotels, I checked into one of the largest. Before I got to my room I owed three days rent. The hotel had a very exclusive restaurant that was so fancy that when somebody ordered Russian dressing, the waiter put on Russian clothes to serve the dish. And when a customer ordered Hungarian goulash, the waiter put on a Hungarian costume. But after I ate there, said Miltie sorrowfully, the cops closed the place down. I never should have ordered that salad without dressing. While in Vegas, Berle would play gin rummy before his evening show and would always win big. But after the show, he would play craps where his luck was always bad, and by the end of the evening, he would have lost everything he had won. Everyone connected with the show knew that Uncle Miltie could certainly handle his gin, but invariably, Miltons pair of dice lost.

BY JIM CLARK Editor When the Tampa Police Dept. and Hillsborough County Sheriff found out that the Republican National Convention was coming to town, they decided they didnt have the numbers in law enforcement for crowd management, so they put out a notice to state agencies, asking for help. The Marion County Sheriffs Office answered the call, sending 38 members to a week at the gathering. Among those taking part was Sgt. Louis Pulford, who at the time was second in command at the Southwest District Office on State Road 200. The 11-year veteran of the Marion County Sheriffs Office, who is also a former police officer for Williston, has since been transferred to the Oklawaha district. The 38 members were split into four squads. Pulford was one of the squad leaders. The chain of command included a platoon consisting of squads, and a division under the Tampa Police. The local deputies went to Anniston, Alabama, for training. I dont see this type of thing happening in Ocala, he said, but it did provide first-hand crowd management training. The Thursday before the convention was check-in day. Pulford was among those who were put up at a LaQuinta Motel. Friday was a local training day, and then Saturday they went out into the field. We had to drive to the Fairgrounds for breakfast at 4:30 in the morning, and as a supervisor I had a briefing at 5:20, Pulford said, which meant he couldnt oversleep. At about 6 they were bused to their sites, and 12 hours later they were taken back to the Fairgrounds for dinner and a briefing. Sandwiches were served tor lunch. He was assigned to one of four sectors in downtown Tampa, from the east side of the river, Florida Avenue to Ashley Street, and I-275 south to the convention center. There were four parks in the area, and none was really bad. We had no problem with the protesters. He said that some more aggressive protesters come to these sites and try to mix in with the more calm folks, then cause trouble when law enforcement becomes distracted. But with so few protesters, they had no place to hide, Pulford said. Hurricane Isaac definitely had an effect, Pulford said, in keeping the out-of-town protesters from coming. He spoke of the hundreds of arrests four years ago at the convention site in St. Paul, Minnesota, but said from Saturday to Thursday in Tampa they had less than 10 total. Pulford said the emphasis was on tolerance, making sure people could express their First Amendment rights. They didnt want people making poor decisions. He said he was impressed with one Tampa assistant chief who, after lunch one day, took leftover sandwiches and drinks to the protesters. A more radical group had left to go to the RNC site and left the others behind with no food, drink or water. Pulford showed some of the equipment that he had to wear when on duty. He said that on top of his regular uniform, he added 50-60 pounds of crowd management gear, including a vest-like garment, arm guards, shin guards and a helmet with a number on it, all during the August heat of Florida. He said the numbers on the helmet were a great form of accountability. Fortunately, that wasnt needed after the way the crowds behaved, and after the way the 1,600 members of law enforcement handled the crowd management.

BY JIM CLARK Editor A 22-year-old Marion Oaks man is in the Marion County Jail, charged with two counts of felony murder and various other charges. According to reports from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, Azael Angel Stevens of 15670 S.W. 19th Ave. Road, shot and killed his grandmother and great-grandmother on Sept. 9. The victims were identified as Yolanda E. Fruto, 70, and Faustina M. Bontteg, 93, who were killed at the same address. According to the report, another woman who was at the house and her 8-year-old son went to a house next door asking for help. The woman had apparently been shot in the face. Because of the language barrier with the adults, the boy had to describe what happened. The report says that Stevens demanded car keys from the boys mother, then shot her in the face. At some point he allegedly killed the other two women. Two women die in Marion Oaks Felony murder charged Stevens PHOTO BY JIM CLARKConvention duty Sgt.

BY JIM CLARK EditorWhen the Tampa Police Dept. and Hillsborough County Sheriff found out that the Republican National Convention was coming to town, they decided they didnt have the numbers in law enforcement for crowd management, so they put out a notice to state agencies, asking for help. The Marion County Sheriffs Office answered the call, sending 38 members to a week at the gathering. Among those taking part was Sgt. Louis Pulford, who at the time was second in command at the Southwest District Office on State Road 200. The 11-year veteran of the Marion County Sheriffs Office, who is also a former police officer for Williston, has since been transferred to the Oklawaha district. The 38 members were split into four squads. Pulford was one of the squad leaders. The chain of command included a platoon consisting of squads, and a division under the Tampa Police. The local deputies went to Anniston, Alabama, for training. I dont see this type of thing happening in Ocala, he said, but it did provide first-hand crowd management training. The Thursday before the convention was check-in day. Pulford was among those who were put up at a LaQuinta Motel. Friday was a local training day, and then Saturday they went out into the field. We had to drive to the Fairgrounds for breakfast at 4:30 in the morning, and as a supervisor I had a briefing at 5:20, Pulford said, which meant he couldnt oversleep. At about 6 they were bused to their sites, and 12 hours later they were taken back to the Fairgrounds for dinner and a briefing. Sandwiches were served tor lunch. He was assigned to one of four sectors in downtown Tampa, from the east side of the river, Florida Avenue to Ashley Street, and I-275 south to the convention center. There were four parks in the area, and none was really bad. We had no problem with the protesters. He said that some more aggressive protesters come to these sites and try to mix in with the more calm folks, then cause trouble when law enforcement becomes distracted. But with so few protesters, they had no place to hide, Pulford said. Hurricane Isaac definitely had an effect, Pulford said, in keeping the out-of-town protesters from coming. He spoke of the hundreds of arrests four years ago at the convention site in St. Paul, Minnesota, but said from Saturday to Thursday in Tampa they had less than 10 total. Pulford said the emphasis was on tolerance, making sure people could express their First Amendment rights. They didnt want people making poor decisions. He said he was impressed with one Tampa assistant chief who, after lunch one day, took leftover sandwiches and drinks to the protesters. A more radical group had left to go to the RNC site and left the others behind with no food, drink or water. Pulford showed some of the equipment that he had to wear when on duty. He said that on top of his regular uniform, he added 50-60 pounds of crowd management gear, including a vest-like garment, arm guards, shin guards and a helmet with a number on it, all during the August heat of Florida. He said the numbers on the helmet were a great form of accountability. Fortunately, that wasnt needed after the way the crowds behaved, and after the way the 1,600 members of law enforcement handled the crowd management.

Friday, September 14, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, September 14, 2012 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVER TISING On this date in 1948, Milton Berle started his TV career as the host of Tuesdays evening Texaco Star Theater. He was the first major American television star and was so popular that fewer movie tickets were sold on Tuesdays and some theaters, restaurants and other businesses shut down for the hour or closed for the evening. During Berles career of nearly 70 years, he collected more than 10,000 jokes from vaudeville, radio, television and film. Our travels down Pun Alley have found some of them for you.High flyingA man felt so sick that he decided to go to a famous medical clinic three thousand miles from home. He was given a battery of tests, the total cost of which was in the thousands. Twelve specialists agreed on a diagnosis. The man was told that he was in excellent health, but his blood pressure was too high. The man flew back to his home city and hailed a cab. As they rode, the man said to the driver that hed just completed a physical. Before he could explain the results, the cabdriver said, You look to be in excellent health, except maybe your blood pressure is too high.Hillbilly livingA 40-year-old hillbilly carried a younger hillbilly into the doctors office, deposited him on the examining table, and said, See if you can patch him up soon. I shot up his rear end like it was a tail on a possum. Dont hurt him none, because hes my son-inlaw. The doctor said, Why would you shoot your sonin-law? The hillbilly said, He wasnt my son-in-law when I shot him! Later, two hillbillies met and started to converse. One said, I got a darn mule with the fits. What did you give your mule when it had the fits? The other hillbilly said, I gave him a mixture of turpentine and kerosene. The next day the hillbillies met again. The first one said, I gave my mule some of that turpentine and kerosene. The mixture killed him. The other one said, Killed mine too. QuipsWe owe a lot to Thomas Edison; if it wasnt for him, wed be watching television by candlelight. I went to a parachutejumping class. The dropout rate was incredible. The company accountant is shy and retiring. Hes shy a quarter of a million dollars. Thats why hes retiring. A baker quit making donuts because he got tired of the hole thing. A committee is a group that keeps minutes and loses hours. If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands? I just got a brand new pill from my doctor. It has nothing but side effects. You can lead a man to Congress, but you cant make him think. A good wife always forgives her husband when shes wrong. If flowers dont talk back to you, are they mums? I know why Superman left Krypton. Earth was the only place where he could get steroids. He must be a good gardener. He and his plants are both potted. A man told a co-worker, I cant break my wife of the habit of staying up till five in the morning. What is she doing? the co-worker asked. Waiting for me to get home. VegasWhen Berle arrived to do shows in Las Vegas, he saw that some of the hotels are gigantic, more like cities than hotels, I checked into one of the largest. Before I got to my room I owed three days rent. The hotel had a very exclusive restaurant that was so fancy that when somebody ordered Russian dressing, the waiter put on Russian clothes to serve the dish. And when a customer ordered Hungarian goulash, the waiter put on a Hungarian costume. But after I ate there, said Miltie sorrowfully, the cops closed the place down. I never should have ordered that salad without dressing. While in Vegas, Berle would play gin rummy before his evening show and would always win big. But after the show, he would play craps where his luck was always bad, and by the end of the evening, he would have lost everything he had won. Everyone connected with the show knew that Uncle Miltie could certainly handle his gin, but invariably, Miltons pair of dice lost.

But youll have to present some hard facts and figures if you hope to persuade those who make the big decisions to support you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Keep those bright Bulls eyes focused on the project at hand. Avoid distractions. Therell be lots of time for fun and games later. Expect to get welcome news this weekend.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Its a good time to take a stand and show as much passion on your own behalf as you do when arguing for the rights of others. You might be happily surprised by the reaction. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You bring sense and sensitivity to a confusing situation. Things soon settle down, leaving you free to enjoy a weekend of fun and relaxation with friends and family.

The program will air following FYI daily at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. from Sept. 14 to 21. Way Off BroadwayWay Off Broadways October production of Squad Room Blues is turning out to be the belly busting funny farce it was patterned after, the long running TV sitcom, Barney Miller staring Hal Linden and a whole host of equally funny actors. One of the funniest roles in the play is the part of a woman with a guilt complex played by Clara Laskay who made her Oak Run debut as a cook in St Louis at the Fair. Her first lines as she enters the squad room, bent on being arrested, are It doesnt matter. Im guilty. Im always guilty. Arrest me. Sentence me. I deserve it. Her lines get more hilarious as the play develops. Then we have a lunatic played by Wendy Panacek who thinks he is from the planet Mars, his brain is a two-way radio and the end of the world was yesterday. He comes and goes, in and out of captivity and he just gets wackier as they try to throw a butterfly net over him. When the funny lines subside some great musical numbers take over. There is never a dull moment. We have a share of romance too when our Detectives Grant, Marci Hutto, and Strindberg, Ray Balliet, are locked in an embrace, caught and threatened by the janitor, Mary Walker, with exposure and possible expulsion from the squad room. Well, we cant give away the plot but you will really be missing something if you dont come see the play. Remember, if you cannot make it to one of the public ticket sales contact a member of WOB or call Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 either of whom will see that you get tickets. Again, the best reserved seats sell out fast so dont delay.Tuesday is bingo nightJoin your friends and neighbors for bingo every Tuesday at the Orchid Club.

Friday, September 14, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com We suffered through seemingly endless coming attractions in order to see Dinesh DSouzas much discussed documentary 2016: Obamas America. Weve read comments that its a vanity project, powerful stuff, propaganda, not a documentary, speculative, thoughtfully researched, et cetera. The producers are undoubtedly pleased that reviews have stimulated a continuing flow of paying customers and a theatre run that may win recognition as one of the best documentaries of all time We found nothing disturbing or frightening in the film comments weve heard from other viewers. Our impression is that the producers have vetted candidate Obama one election too late. In 2008, Republicans were too lazy, too cocky, or too intimidated by racial considerations to take a thorough look at the Democratic nominee for president. Instead of vetting candidate Obama, Republicans got tangled up in silly minutia, such as the mystery of his withheld birth certificate. Like the hoopla over Mr. Romneys tax returns, some dogs cant give up a smelly bone even though it has no meat on it. Both of Mr. Obamas books Dreams From My Father and The Audacity of Hope were available in 2008. They reveal Mr. Obamas America as he envisioned it then and sees it now. Since the end of the SpanishAmerican war (1898), Americas global influence has continued to grow in the name of world peace and commercial freedom. The underlying theme of 2016: Obamas America is that the President and his long-dead father have considered Americas worldwide influence a disguised remnant of colonialism, marred by the original sin of slavery. In The Audacity of Hope Mr. Obama said he is angry about national policies which favor the wealthy and powerful over average Americans, and that the majority of citizens are weary over the dead zone that American politics has become. He said plainly that his political mission is to begin a process of changing the politics and civic life of the nation. More specifically President Obama means reducing the more than 700 military installations America maintains at home and around the world, dedicating significant amounts of national wealth to saving the planet, stimulating domestic employment, and rearranging distribution of federal benefits. Mr. Obama admits modestly This isnt to say that I know exactly how to do it. I dont. He hopes he can complete changing the nation and the world in a second term. His goal is a socialistic democracy which distributes wealth compassionately and is not controlled or over influenced by commercial and military interests. Despite four years in the White House, Mr. Obama is an enigma to many Americans. For those who dont enjoy reading non-fiction biography, the movie 2016: Obamas America is an alternative. It draws a well-researched picture of his family background, his education, and his life journey. Its serious, but its not the scary movie some folks made it out to be. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 14, 2012 Maybe its time to go back to a career I once had. After viewing some football on television this past week, Ive decided I need to go back to being a football official. Of course, I only worked high school games, but I had 25 years of experience, and evidently that qualifies me to be one of the replacements in the National Football League. I watched the NFL this past weekend, locked into the Red Zone, a cable system channel that gives you highlight coverage of all games as they happen. I saw enough questionable officiating to make me go into the closet and dig for a whistle. The most egregious came on Sunday in the Denver vs. Pittsburgh game. Quarterback Peyton Manning of the Broncos suddenly went to a no-huddle offense, designed to catch the Steelers with too many men on the field. It worked. There was an extra player jogging off the field, right in front of an official. But that official had his back to the ball and had no clue that the ball had been snapped before the extra player got off the field. Its a basic fundamental: Watch the ball. The first call of the season was clipping, which resulted in a half-the-distance penalty. That happened last Wednesday. Unfortunately, the replay showed an average block in the back, a 10yard penalty. In fact, I didnt know they had clipping in the rule book any more. Its been years since Ive seen it called. There were some judgment calls that were questionable, but I learned a long time ago that judgment calls can look one way on TV and be entirely different in person. But not watching the ball? Thats inexcusable. Of course, football is not the only sport that has officiating problems. In a baseball game Saturday, the Yankees lost a chance to tie on the last play of the game when one of their players slid into first (never a smart thing) but was called out, even though replay showed he was obviously safe. But back to football. Its obvious they need me. Of course Im a bit older, cant see as well, have gained some weight over the years and cant run as fast as I used to. But other than those little things. I think Im perfectly qualified. So look for me next Sunday. Ill be the old guy who doesnt move very well. Come to think of it, I may be hard to spot among all those replacement officials.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

We keep hearing about various people analyzing why the school tax levies failed in the recent primary election. To us, its not a complicated thing. First, people dont want more taxes period. You can justify the tax as much as you want, but a lot of folks dont want a tax increase, no matter how small. Second, the School Board made a mistake in rushing this proposal on the ballot in August, because members wanted the money faster. It should have been voted on in November. Lets look at these two reasons. Nobody likes more taxes. There are too many things working against the schools when this happens. The funding for programs failed by a relatively narrow margin apparently more people understood that this vote directly affected what the students learn, what activities they have access to, such as art and music, and this one might have passed if it were on its own. But its apparent from the vote totals that the other choice, for improvements, dragged it down. People see things such as the West Port and Forest high school campuses, which look more like small colleges, and they wonder why in the world money is needed for capital improvements. Even a drive by Hammett Bowen and Liberty Middle provide a look at modern, up-todate facilities. Unfortunately, not all school buildings are in as good condition as some of these facilities, and the children in those areas need help in bringing their buildings up to speed. The schools needed to do a much better selling job on this amendment, and did not do so. Many of the backers chose the doom-and-gloom scenario if it failed, and the public didnt take too kindly to that. Along the campaign trail, we constantly heard how there were too many administrators, and that funds could be saved there. The people werent buying the need for more taxes. Then there was the timing. There were questions raised when this was put on the ballot for the primary. Some felt that the Board was trying to take advantage of having a lot of people out of town in August when the vote was held, but officials said it was necessary to make the funding available earlier. As it turned out, the anti-tax forces turned out for this election, where they may have been outnumbered when November came. The questions turned out to be valid it couldnt pass in August. So now we will read about how programs will be cut and schools will not get fixed. But somehow education will go on. But if it turns out that our schools do need more money, lets hope that officials do a better job of presenting the facts to the voters whenever this comes up again. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY School taxes: Why they failed Is it time to dig out that old whistle? Jim Flynn Columnist An afternoon at the movies with Barack Obama Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Truth check on sonogramsAmid all the verbiage concerning the use of sonograms before abortion, not once has this writer heard any member of the opposition to sonograms tell the truth about the use of sonograms. These supporters of abortion will say: (1) Women should not be forced to have a service that would add cost to the procedure, or (2) women should not have to view a sonogram in order to have the procedure, or (3) forcing women to view a sonogram before the abortion procedure is a violation of her civil rights. There are many other objections to sonograms by such persons but they are too numerous to list here. Whether or not any of these persons speaking out against sonograms knows the truth or not must be left up to someone else to decide. Most opinions are that they know the truth but prefer using their own personal spin in order to condemn the use of sonograms prior to abortion. It is well known by the pro-abortion community that when a pregnant woman sees a sonogram of her unborn child, she is most apt to not abort. Sonograms have seriously cut into abortion profits. The truth is: (1) Abortionists have always used the sonogram as a tool in the procedure a sonogram shows the abortionist the position, the actual size, and the placement of the fetus. This advance information makes for a less timely procedure. (2) Every woman who has had an abortion in the past several years has had a sonogram produced before the abortion. (3) The cost of this sonogram is now, and has always been, included in the complete price of the procedure. Therefore, it is a total falsehood that now women will be charged additionally for sonograms. (4) Abortionists have always known the effectiveness of sonograms, so until laws were PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 are required. Be sure to see Geri soon as these events are quickly sold out.

Ritz House Food Drive Thursday, Oct. 11, the Veterans Club is asking all of our residents to donate to the Ritz House for Veterans Food Drive. Everyone knows that the price of food is going up all the time and we know too that asking you to pick up a few things extra is a hardship. In spite of this, we are asking that each resident put a bag at the curb on the 11th with non-perishable food stuff; cleaning supplies; paper products or similar items that can be used by our Veterans at Ritz House. Ritz House is a home to assist Veterans who are transitioning from alcohol or drug abuse; homelessness and destitution. They are provided with a clean room; counseling; programs and support and in return, they cook all of their own meals and clean the facility. These Veterans are working hard at restoring the lives and they can use all the help we can give them. If you can pick up a couple of extra cans at the grocery store or dollar store; put them in a bag at curbside on the 11th, you will help a needy vet and it wont be too painful at the check out stand. Note we will also be collecting at the craft show on the 13th.SECO to SpeakOn Oct. 4 at 2 p.m., the Cherrywood Veterans Club is featuring a representative from SECO to be the guest speaker.

Make it a point to come to these two meetings and gain insight into the services that are available and the threats we face.Biloxi Get-A-WayHow does four days and three nights at the IP Casino Resort and Spa sound?

On Saturday of Labor Day weekend my daughter Kim was critically injured in a motorcycle accident up in Michigan. She was in intensive care and faces a long recovery. For that reason, my time was totally occupied and I was unable to do a proper interview for a Spotlight subject. Thanks to the answered prayers of family and friends; the expert medical care she is receiving and the expertise of the EMTs, she is making progress. We thank God that she is still with us and are hopeful that while it will be a long process, she will have a complete recovery. On a personal note, I would encourage all of you who ride motorcycles to please wear your helmets. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 No matter how long or short the trip, things can happen in a split second that can be life changing and life threatening. Again, I would like to express my deep appreciation to all of you, especially my Cherrywood family, for your prayers; your love and your good wishes.

Now the woman has a choice to view or not to view it is her call. The Florida sonogram law, effective as of July 1, 2011, requires the abortionist to show and explain to you a visual image of the fetus. If you do not choose to view the image or hear the explanation, you will be asked to sign documents stating that you were offered the opportunity and declined. Before this law was effective, you were forced to pay for a sonogram, but not allowed to view the image. As with any medical procedure the patient should have all available information and the sonogram will accommodate that important need. Mabel Ryan, President Life Education Ministry, Inc. Americas future in our handsAccording to some polls, Obama now has a 50 percent favorable rating, which is beyond my comprehension. There is NO way that many can be led astray by the liberal medias twisting facts regarding his dismal record as president. Our economy is the worst since the great depression, our debt exceeds 16 trillion dollars, more Americans are living in poverty, more on food stamps, home values have plummeted, multimillions unemployed, and the list goes on. As bad as this is, perhaps the worst thing he has done is to divide Americans, pitting one against the other, declaring war on honest successful citizens. He has championed more division among us than any time since the War Between The States. Every time a far left liberal Democrat opens his mouth he promotes class warfare as he blindly follows Obamas lead. I have addressed these particular issues in previous editorial letters with facts. We cant survive as a divided nation, but there are some who believe we are not exceptional and should lower our standard of living. They believe our success is only possible through taking advantage of others, as Obama shares in one of his books. We should salute any American who can be a great financial success, fulfilling the American dream. Successful people provide needed jobs and these private sector jobs are the financial backbone of our country. We are a country of opportunity and winners, lets keep it that way! At least many of his supporters now admit he is the least qualified president we have ever elected and cant get the job done. Obama stated that this election is about what direction America is to take, and if you want to continue on his collision course you will vote for him again. I cant believe the majority LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 of us want his vision of America, but if we do, America will cease to exist as we know it. Think before you vote, our future depends on it! Pray that God will not withhold his blessings from us, but if we keep moving away from him, are we giving him a choice? Wayne Rackley OcalaA different ball gameOn average, we seniors have voted in about 15 presidential elections ... some more crucial than others. But the issues in each were based on two fundamentals: God, and our Constitution. The coming election is a whole different ball game. Republicans continue to base their platform on these two principles. The current administration, however, is basing theirs on something that was never envisioned by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution. This administration excluded God from their DNC platform, then, at the last minute under pressure decided to put God back in. God is not a car option or menu side dish one can choose or not choose at will; God is the guiding principle of our lives. They have, on many occasions, bypassed the Constitution when enacting their legislation. This administration seems to be governing in pretty much any way it wants ... without regard to God or the Constitution. The Nov. 6 presidential election will be the most important one ever. The two choices are clear: another term of a ruined economy, continued joblessness, higher taxes, an ineffectual administration, or, a government that will get America back on the right track by creating much needed jobs, fixing our broken economy, and restoring prosperity to all of the people ... with a strong emphasis on God and our Constitution. We definitely are not better off then we were four years ago, and, if the current administration wins re-election, well be in even worse shape four years from now. Joe OHara OcalaHealth responsibilityMake no mistake; socalled health care in America is not about curing anything. It is only about managing many different kinds of symptoms (that a person may experience at a given time) that have been conveniently named and classified for usfrom a sore throat and runny nose to aches and pains (arthritis), to cardiovascular issues, osteoporosis, cancer, diabetes, AIDS, etc. Symptom management includes cutting the body (surgery), burning the body (radiation), and/or ingesting very powerful drugs that in most cases create far more problems than they ever solve. This isnt working; people are very sick; and people are leaving the planet way too early. Those who are not healthy, who want to be healthy, and believe that they can be healthy have got to begin to take complete responsibility for their life and everything in it including all dis-ease in any form. Dis-ease means when the body is not at ease. Symptoms can be uncomfortable yes, but symptoms (all of thema runny nose or cancer) are the result of the body trying to handle something. And because many dont yet get what symptoms really are they refuse to allow their body to do its job. Many are on auto-pilot rushing off to take a pill to relieve (control) every symptom because they want to make it stop to feel better. BUT when they do that they are just shutting down their immune systemthe bodys ability to do its job which is to keep us healthy.

Control of your life Then they will be satisfied D.I. Larson Ocala RELIGION PLEASESEERELIGION, PAGE15 of pushing this button and pushing that button I had on the other end of the phone a very pleasant and cheerful voice, a representative of the IRS. After we exchanged some personal niceties and followed up on the weather report from each of our locations, we finally got down to the real business of the phone call. I must confess I was not expecting such pleasantries from an IRS agent. I assumed she had the telephone in one hand and a loaded, fully cocked revolver in the other. If she did, she concealed it most admirably. Then we got down to the nitty-gritty of what the IRS is all about: collecting taxes from potentially delinquent taxpayers, like myself. The thought that I deliberately was delinquent was rather humiliating for me. Simply put, I just did not pay enough in, but this telephone call was going to rectify all of that. After she crunched all the figures and as I waited patiently on my end of the phone, she was able to determine I owed the government an arm and a leg. It was then that the negotiations began in earnest. I must confess she could not have been any nicer had she been my grandmother. She then began to query as to which arm and which leg I was going to give to the government. This presented a real difficult decision on my part. Throughout the years, I have grown quite fond of both arms and both legs. Then I asked her if I could counter a proposal. She replied in the affirmative. Would you consider, I began rather slowly, an arm OR a leg? There was a pause on the other and of the phone when I could tell she was thinking. Whenever you get a government employee to think, watch out. I could hear the old wheels grinding and grinding. Finally, she said, I think that would be acceptable. And, Ill even allow you to select either arm or leg. We like to work with people. Now the burden was on me. I now owed the government an arm OR a leg and I just had to select which one. I first considered my arms. In thinking about them, I use both of my arms although the left one less than the right one every day. What with writing and eating my arms are rather busy throughout the day. Then I considered my legs. I like my right leg and so the choice became rather easy for me. Now, the United States government has at least one leg to stand on, thanks to Yours Truly. I have something greater to stand on. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage (Galatians 5:1 KJV). Jesus Christ trumps Uncle Sam when it comes to liberty.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

All are welcome. RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 Ioften hear derogatory remarks directed toward the IRS. I must admit that many of these critical remarks originated with me. Not that I do not like my good old Uncle Sam, it is that he is a little demanding when it comes to tax time. Every year I complain about filing my income tax and paying out gobs and gobs of dollars to the United States government. I know it is important to pay taxes, and, I pay my fair share even though it may be grudgingly. Throughout the years, I have complained that dear old Uncle Sam never writes me a letter. I will have to amend that complaint because I recently received a personalized letter from the IRS. Well, you can imagine my surprise at getting this letter. With trembling hands, I opened the letter, anxious to know what was going on in the world of Uncle Sam. I expected a detailed letter of what he was doing and how he was getting along and how the kids were and all that sort of thing. Imagine my surprise when none of that information was contained in the letter. From the contents of the letter, and I must say a lot of it was goobly glop, I had fallen far short of my share of income tax this past year. According to the letter, I was a gazillion dollars short of what he had expected from me and quite frankly, he was disappointed in this behavior on my part. Do not ask me how many zeros a gazillion dollars have because I do not know. I do not have that many fingers or toes. Although I read the letter several times it was not quite clear how much I actually owed and what plans there were in place for me to pay it back. From what I could understand from the letter, I owed good old Uncle Sam an arm and a leg, and he was highly expecting that I would come through for him. Well, that kind of letter did not set well with me. I was tempted to leave the country, then sneak back as an illegal alien, and not have to worry about all this nasty stuff. But, I did not have that much energy available. There was a phone number I was to call if I had any personal questions. Boy, did I have some personal questions. I was fully expecting not to get a real human voice when I called. But, again, I was pleasantly surprised. Within 30 minutes and after dozens Who says the IRS is mean and nasty? OUT TO PASTOR J SRev.

Marion Landing shows its appreciation to community volunteers each month by recognizing residents who have made significant contributions to our community. At the Sept. 4 Tuesday Social, Carolyn Cockerham was presented with a Volunteer Recognition Award by Charlie Mock, Board 2nd Vice President. The following is Charlies presentation: The year is 2003 and this resident started a nine year career of volunteerism to make Marion Landing one of the finest homeowner associations on the State Road 200 corridor. This homeowner has been active in the following events: chairing and coordinating several dances, including the Halloween dance; overseeing and directing several pool parties, including the Labor Day pool party; chairing the February Cabin Fever dance; and organizing the volleyball banquet which included the presentation of a delicious sheet cake. For three years, this volunteer was the captain in charge of all the volleyball activities in the pool. This individual has accomplished all of these tasks in a positive and helpful manner and drives a mean golf cart. So it is my distinct pleasure to introduce our newest member to the long list of honored volunteers, Carolyn Cockerham. Carolyns engraved plaque will join the more than 147 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents who are nominated for the award by their peers. If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a Board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director. Craft Fair Jump start your holiday shopping season at Marion Landings fall Craft Fair, which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Lifestyle Center. There will be 30 plus tables set up with crafters selling a variety of handcrafted items including jewelry, handbags, shell art, macram plant hangers, mosaic wall hangings, floral arrangements, quilts, paintings, beautiful lighted wine bottles and glass blocks, and assorted holiday decorations. We hope everyone will come down on Saturday, Oct. 13, and join us. Its fun to see all the different projects, and we appreciate the communitys support of our local crafters, said Merry Anne Krell, Craft Fair chairperson. We will also be selling coffee, donuts and Danish in the morning; hot dogs and beverages for lunch. The Marion Landing Lifestyle Center is located on Southwest 65th Avenue Road, just off State Road 200 across from Queen of Peace Catholic Church. Admission to this event is free, and it is open to the public.

The show dates are Feb. 8 to 10.SoftballThere is some anxiety going on with the Wiseway team since it has lost some key players. Gone for the rest of the season is Angelo, their pitcher, who injured himself while playing tennis. Also out for an undetermined period is Jimmy, the player-coach who will be out for personal reasons and their shortstop, Donny, due to medical reasons. With the loss of these three important players, it makes the team a vulnerable and weaker team. Luckily, the team was able to pick up a couple of substitutes who helped to beat their closest rival, the young and quick Stone Creek players, but it was a squeaker which went into extra innings. The Wiseway team will have to hope they can continue to get good substitutes for the upcoming games, and they need three more wins before they can claim the championship. It may be difficult to catch the Wiseway team, but it is now a bit handicapped, and the young Stone Creek Team is hoping to get some wins and catch the ailing leader. The Central Florida Eye team has fallen apart and headed toward the basement with loss after loss. The one good thing is that the Cebert Wealth team is deep in the basement, although they have been playing well lately with four wins and only two losses in their last six games. Its too late, though, for Cebert Wealth and the teams best hope is to try to bypass the Central Florida Eye team. SOFTBALL STANDINGS 1-Wiseway-Jimmy 20-9 4-Stone Creek16-13 3-Fla.

This traditional German celebration is known the world over for its music; food and even a little beer drinking. Cherrywood is ready to join in the fun on Monday, Sept. 24, keeping with all those traditions. At 5:30 dinner of German Bratwurst with all the fixings will be served. Dessert and drinks of lemonade and iced tea will also be available. To keep things truly German, guests are allowed to bring their own beverages, so use your imagination. Northern Sounds will provide the music that will include polkas and German folk dances as well as old favorites to entertain and encourage those who like to dance. We have some pretty good dancers here at Cherrywood and it will be great to see their moves to the upbeat tempos of this locally favorite band. Tickets are necessary so be sure to see Geri as soon as you can. These tickets are of course free to residents thanks to Chris and the Cherrywood Property Management. Guest tickets are $12 each and Geri can provide those also. Your admittance ticket also qualifies you for the door prize so dont miss out on this fun night. Last month we had a record turn out of 250 people and it would be fantastic if we could beat that this month. Theres lots of room in clubhouse; the patio; the picnic area and even pool side so dont hesitate to take advantage of this chance to celebrate Octoberfest with your friends and neighbors.

show and dinner fundraiser. The community has been terrific in supporting Sunshine and always enjoy these events, said Janice Wood, Sunshine Fundraising chairperson. The tropical menu will be provided by My Sonss Catering of Ocala; they always do a great job with food and service. This is a sold-out event, so if youve already purchased your tickets, come down to the Lifestyle Center on Saturday; doors open at 5 p.m. Tuesdays speakerLori Timmreck, Owner of All About You Womens Boutique will be here on Tuesday, Sept. 18, after the Social to tell us about the products and services her store offers and the support they provide to those affected by breast cancer. If youre someone who has been touched by breast cancer or knows someone who has breast cancer, plan on staying after the Social to learn more about the store, the staff and how they can help women through this most difficult time.Blood driveMuch of todays medical care depends on a steady supply of blood from healthy donors, and this Wednesday, Sept. 19, you can help. This is the day the Big Red Bus will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. to collect donations for Floridas Blood Centers, the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. In the U.S. and Canada, more than 4.5 million patients need blood transfusions each year; and 43,000 pints of donated blood are used each day. Someone needs blood every two seconds, and just one pint of blood can save up to three lives. However, most donated red blood cells can only be stored for 42 days, most donated platelets can be stored for five days, and frozen plasma can be stored for one year. That why its imperative that we replenish our available blood supply by donating to our local blood bank. You can donate blood even if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, and you only need be cancer-free for one year. And donating blood not only helps others, but is beneficial to yourself, as well. Thats according to a study published by the American Medical Association that found that giving blood every six months led to fewer heart attacks and strokes in test participants. And according to www.bloodcenters.org, excessive iron is thought to contribute to heart disease, especially at its early stages. Donating blood on a regular basis reduces the iron stored in the body, and this study supports the theory that reducing iron appears to preserve heart and vascular health. Our blood drive coordinator Pat Wurst tells us that if you donate blood every other month, your body replenishes its own blood supply with fresh blood, and you may reduce your risk of heart attack by as much as 70 percent. These facts alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on Sept. 19. Sign up on the sheet hanging on the activity wall, or see Pat and her volunteers in the lobby the day the bus is here. Remember to eat something before you donate, drink plenty of fluid and bring a photo I.D. with you. We hope we can depend on you!One-stroke painting classWe welcome back Debbie Blackburn who will be here on Monday, Sept. 24, to teach a One-Stroke Painting class.

show and dinner fundraiser. The community has been terrific in supporting Sunshine and always enjoy these events, said Janice Wood, Sunshine Fundraising chairperson. The tropical menu will be provided by My Sonss Catering of Ocala; they always do a great job with food and service. This is a sold-out event, so if youve already purchased your tickets, come down to the Lifestyle Center on Saturday; doors open at 5 p.m. Tuesdays speakerLori Timmreck, Owner of All About You Womens Boutique will be here on Tuesday, Sept. 18, after the Social to tell us about the products and services her store offers and the support they provide to those affected by breast cancer. If youre someone who has been touched by breast cancer or knows someone who has breast cancer, plan on staying after the Social to learn more about the store, the staff and how they can help women through this most difficult time.Blood driveMuch of todays medical care depends on a steady supply of blood from healthy donors, and this Wednesday, Sept. 19, you can help. This is the day the Big Red Bus will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. to collect donations for Floridas Blood Centers, the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. In the U.S. and Canada, more than 4.5 million patients need blood transfusions each year; and 43,000 pints of donated blood are used each day. Someone needs blood every two seconds, and just one pint of blood can save up to three lives. However, most donated red blood cells can only be stored for 42 days, most donated platelets can be stored for five days, and frozen plasma can be stored for one year. That why its imperative that we replenish our available blood supply by donating to our local blood bank. You can donate blood even if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, and you only need be cancer-free for one year. And donating blood not only helps others, but is beneficial to yourself, as well. Thats according to a study published by the American Medical Association that found that giving blood every six months led to fewer heart attacks and strokes in test participants. And according to www.bloodcenters.org, excessive iron is thought to contribute to heart disease, especially at its early stages. Donating blood on a regular basis reduces the iron stored in the body, and this study supports the theory that reducing iron appears to preserve heart and vascular health. Our blood drive coordinator Pat Wurst tells us that if you donate blood every other month, your body replenishes its own blood supply with fresh blood, and you may reduce your risk of heart attack by as much as 70 percent. These facts alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on Sept. 19. Sign up on the sheet hanging on the activity wall, or see Pat and her volunteers in the lobby the day the bus is here. Remember to eat something before you donate, drink plenty of fluid and bring a photo I.D. with you. We hope we can depend on you!One-stroke painting classWe welcome back Debbie Blackburn who will be here on Monday, Sept. 24, to teach a One-Stroke Painting class.

Marion Landing shows its appreciation to community volunteers each month by recognizing residents who have made significant contributions to our community. At the Sept. 4 Tuesday Social, Carolyn Cockerham was presented with a Volunteer Recognition Award by Charlie Mock, Board 2nd Vice President. The following is Charlies presentation: The year is 2003 and this resident started a nine year career of volunteerism to make Marion Landing one of the finest homeowner associations on the State Road 200 corridor. This homeowner has been active in the following events: chairing and coordinating several dances, including the Halloween dance; overseeing and directing several pool parties, including the Labor Day pool party; chairing the February Cabin Fever dance; and organizing the volleyball banquet which included the presentation of a delicious sheet cake. For three years, this volunteer was the captain in charge of all the volleyball activities in the pool. This individual has accomplished all of these tasks in a positive and helpful manner and drives a mean golf cart. So it is my distinct pleasure to introduce our newest member to the long list of honored volunteers, Carolyn Cockerham. Carolyns engraved plaque will join the more than 147 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents who are nominated for the award by their peers. If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a Board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director. Craft Fair Jump start your holiday shopping season at Marion Landings fall Craft Fair, which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Lifestyle Center.

The show dates are Feb. 8 to 10.SoftballThere is some anxiety going on with the Wiseway team since it has lost some key players. Gone for the rest of the season is Angelo, their pitcher, who injured himself while playing tennis. Also out for an undetermined period is Jimmy, the player-coach who will be out for personal reasons and their shortstop, Donny, due to medical reasons. With the loss of these three important players, it makes the team a vulnerable and weaker team. Luckily, the team was able to pick up a couple of substitutes who helped to beat their closest rival, the young and quick Stone Creek players, but it was a squeaker which went into extra innings. The Wiseway team will have to hope they can continue to get good substitutes for the upcoming games, and they need three more wins before they can claim the championship. It may be difficult to catch the Wiseway team, but it is now a bit handicapped, and the young Stone Creek Team is hoping to get some wins and catch the ailing leader. The Central Florida Eye team has fallen apart and headed toward the basement with loss after loss. The one good thing is that the Cebert Wealth team is deep in the basement, although they have been playing well lately with four wins and only two losses in their last six games. Its too late, though, for Cebert Wealth and the teams best hope is to try to bypass the Central Florida Eye team. SOFTBALL STANDINGS 1-Wiseway-Jimmy 20-9 4-Stone Creek16-13 3-Fla.

This traditional German celebration is known the world over for its music; food and even a little beer drinking. Cherrywood is ready to join in the fun on Monday, Sept. 24, keeping with all those traditions. At 5:30 dinner of German Bratwurst with all the fixings will be served. Dessert and drinks of lemonade and iced tea will also be available. To keep things truly German, guests are allowed to bring their own beverages, so use your imagination. Northern Sounds will provide the music that will include polkas and German folk dances as well as old favorites to entertain and encourage those who like to dance. We have some pretty good dancers here at Cherrywood and it will be great to see their moves to the upbeat tempos of this locally favorite band. Tickets are necessary so be sure to see Geri as soon as you can. These tickets are of course free to residents thanks to Chris and the Cherrywood Property Management. Guest tickets are $12 each and Geri can provide those also. Your admittance ticket also qualifies you for the door prize so dont miss out on this fun night. Last month we had a record turn out of 250 people and it would be fantastic if we could beat that this month. Theres lots of room in clubhouse; the patio; the picnic area and even pool side so dont hesitate to take advantage of this chance to celebrate Octoberfest with your friends and neighbors.

Not that I do not like my good old Uncle Sam, it is that he is a little demanding when it comes to tax time. Every year I complain about filing my income tax and paying out gobs and gobs of dollars to the United States government. I know it is important to pay taxes, and, I pay my fair share even though it may be grudgingly. Throughout the years, I have complained that dear old Uncle Sam never writes me a letter. I will have to amend that complaint because I recently received a personalized letter from the IRS. Well, you can imagine my surprise at getting this letter. With trembling hands, I opened the letter, anxious to know what was going on in the world of Uncle Sam. I expected a detailed letter of what he was doing and how he was getting along and how the kids were and all that sort of thing. Imagine my surprise when none of that information was contained in the letter. From the contents of the letter, and I must say a lot of it was goobly glop, I had fallen far short of my share of income tax this past year. According to the letter, I was a gazillion dollars short of what he had expected from me and quite frankly, he was disappointed in this behavior on my part. Do not ask me how many zeros a gazillion dollars have because I do not know. I do not have that many fingers or toes. Although I read the letter several times it was not quite clear how much I actually owed and what plans there were in place for me to pay it back. From what I could understand from the letter, I owed good old Uncle Sam an arm and a leg, and he was highly expecting that I would come through for him. Well, that kind of letter did not set well with me. I was tempted to leave the country, then sneak back as an illegal alien, and not have to worry about all this nasty stuff. But, I did not have that much energy available. There was a phone number I was to call if I had any personal questions. Boy, did I have some personal questions. I was fully expecting not to get a real human voice when I called. But, again, I was pleasantly surprised. Within 30 minutes and after dozens Who says the IRS is mean and nasty? OUT TO PASTOR J SRev.

Now the woman has a choice to view or not to view it is her call. The Florida sonogram law, effective as of July 1, 2011, requires the abortionist to show and explain to you a visual image of the fetus. If you do not choose to view the image or hear the explanation, you will be asked to sign documents stating that you were offered the opportunity and declined. Before this law was effective, you were forced to pay for a sonogram, but not allowed to view the image. As with any medical procedure the patient should have all available information and the sonogram will accommodate that important need. Mabel Ryan, President Life Education Ministry, Inc. Americas future in our handsAccording to some polls, Obama now has a 50 percent favorable rating, which is beyond my comprehension. There is NO way that many can be led astray by the liberal medias twisting facts regarding his dismal record as president. Our economy is the worst since the great depression, our debt exceeds 16 trillion dollars, more Americans are living in poverty, more on food stamps, home values have plummeted, multimillions unemployed, and the list goes on. As bad as this is, perhaps the worst thing he has done is to divide Americans, pitting one against the other, declaring war on honest successful citizens. He has championed more division among us than any time since the War Between The States. Every time a far left liberal Democrat opens his mouth he promotes class warfare as he blindly follows Obamas lead. I have addressed these particular issues in previous editorial letters with facts. We cant survive as a divided nation, but there are some who believe we are not exceptional and should lower our standard of living. They believe our success is only possible through taking advantage of others, as Obama shares in one of his books. We should salute any American who can be a great financial success, fulfilling the American dream. Successful people provide needed jobs and these private sector jobs are the financial backbone of our country. We are a country of opportunity and winners, lets keep it that way! At least many of his supporters now admit he is the least qualified president we have ever elected and cant get the job done. Obama stated that this election is about what direction America is to take, and if you want to continue on his collision course you will vote for him again. I cant believe the majority LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 of us want his vision of America, but if we do, America will cease to exist as we know it. Think before you vote, our future depends on it! Pray that God will not withhold his blessings from us, but if we keep moving away from him, are we giving him a choice? Wayne Rackley OcalaA different ball gameOn average, we seniors have voted in about 15 presidential elections ... some more crucial than others. But the issues in each were based on two fundamentals: God, and our Constitution. The coming election is a whole different ball game. Republicans continue to base their platform on these two principles. The current administration, however, is basing theirs on something that was never envisioned by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution. This administration excluded God from their DNC platform, then, at the last minute under pressure decided to put God back in. God is not a car option or menu side dish one can choose or not choose at will; God is the guiding principle of our lives. They have, on many occasions, bypassed the Constitution when enacting their legislation. This administration seems to be governing in pretty much any way it wants ... without regard to God or the Constitution. The Nov. 6 presidential election will be the most important one ever. The two choices are clear: another term of a ruined economy, continued joblessness, higher taxes, an ineffectual administration, or, a government that will get America back on the right track by creating much needed jobs, fixing our broken economy, and restoring prosperity to all of the people ... with a strong emphasis on God and our Constitution. We definitely are not better off then we were four years ago, and, if the current administration wins re-election, well be in even worse shape four years from now. Joe OHara OcalaHealth responsibilityMake no mistake; socalled health care in America is not about curing anything. It is only about managing many different kinds of symptoms (that a person may experience at a given time) that have been conveniently named and classified for usfrom a sore throat and runny nose to aches and pains (arthritis), to cardiovascular issues, osteoporosis, cancer, diabetes, AIDS, etc. Symptom management includes cutting the body (surgery), burning the body (radiation), and/or ingesting very powerful drugs that in most cases create far more problems than they ever solve. This isnt working; people are very sick; and people are leaving the planet way too early. Those who are not healthy, who want to be healthy, and believe that they can be healthy have got to begin to take complete responsibility for their life and everything in it including all dis-ease in any form. Dis-ease means when the body is not at ease. Symptoms can be uncomfortable yes, but symptoms (all of thema runny nose or cancer) are the result of the body trying to handle something. And because many dont yet get what symptoms really are they refuse to allow their body to do its job. Many are on auto-pilot rushing off to take a pill to relieve (control) every symptom because they want to make it stop to feel better. BUT when they do that they are just shutting down their immune systemthe bodys ability to do its job which is to keep us healthy.

Control of your life Then they will be satisfied D.I. Larson Ocala RELIGION PLEASESEERELIGION, PAGE15 of pushing this button and pushing that button I had on the other end of the phone a very pleasant and cheerful voice, a representative of the IRS. After we exchanged some personal niceties and followed up on the weather report from each of our locations, we finally got down to the real business of the phone call. I must confess I was not expecting such pleasantries from an IRS agent. I assumed she had the telephone in one hand and a loaded, fully cocked revolver in the other. If she did, she concealed it most admirably. Then we got down to the nitty-gritty of what the IRS is all about: collecting taxes from potentially delinquent taxpayers, like myself. The thought that I deliberately was delinquent was rather humiliating for me. Simply put, I just did not pay enough in, but this telephone call was going to rectify all of that. After she crunched all the figures and as I waited patiently on my end of the phone, she was able to determine I owed the government an arm and a leg. It was then that the negotiations began in earnest. I must confess she could not have been any nicer had she been my grandmother. She then began to query as to which arm and which leg I was going to give to the government. This presented a real difficult decision on my part. Throughout the years, I have grown quite fond of both arms and both legs. Then I asked her if I could counter a proposal. She replied in the affirmative. Would you consider, I began rather slowly, an arm OR a leg? There was a pause on the other and of the phone when I could tell she was thinking. Whenever you get a government employee to think, watch out. I could hear the old wheels grinding and grinding. Finally, she said, I think that would be acceptable. And, Ill even allow you to select either arm or leg. We like to work with people. Now the burden was on me. I now owed the government an arm OR a leg and I just had to select which one. I first considered my arms. In thinking about them, I use both of my arms although the left one less than the right one every day. What with writing and eating my arms are rather busy throughout the day. Then I considered my legs. I like my right leg and so the choice became rather easy for me. Now, the United States government has at least one leg to stand on, thanks to Yours Truly. I have something greater to stand on. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage (Galatians 5:1 KJV).

Friday, September 14, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com We suffered through seemingly endless coming attractions in order to see Dinesh DSouzas much discussed documentary 2016: Obamas America. Weve read comments that its a vanity project, powerful stuff, propaganda, not a documentary, speculative, thoughtfully researched, et cetera. The producers are undoubtedly pleased that reviews have stimulated a continuing flow of paying customers and a theatre run that may win recognition as one of the best documentaries of all time We found nothing disturbing or frightening in the film comments weve heard from other viewers. Our impression is that the producers have vetted candidate Obama one election too late. In 2008, Republicans were too lazy, too cocky, or too intimidated by racial considerations to take a thorough look at the Democratic nominee for president. Instead of vetting candidate Obama, Republicans got tangled up in silly minutia, such as the mystery of his withheld birth certificate. Like the hoopla over Mr. Romneys tax returns, some dogs cant give up a smelly bone even though it has no meat on it. Both of Mr. Obamas books Dreams From My Father and The Audacity of Hope were available in 2008. They reveal Mr. Obamas America as he envisioned it then and sees it now. Since the end of the SpanishAmerican war (1898), Americas global influence has continued to grow in the name of world peace and commercial freedom. The underlying theme of 2016: Obamas America is that the President and his long-dead father have considered Americas worldwide influence a disguised remnant of colonialism, marred by the original sin of slavery. In The Audacity of Hope Mr. Obama said he is angry about national policies which favor the wealthy and powerful over average Americans, and that the majority of citizens are weary over the dead zone that American politics has become. He said plainly that his political mission is to begin a process of changing the politics and civic life of the nation. More specifically President Obama means reducing the more than 700 military installations America maintains at home and around the world, dedicating significant amounts of national wealth to saving the planet, stimulating domestic employment, and rearranging distribution of federal benefits. Mr. Obama admits modestly This isnt to say that I know exactly how to do it. I dont. He hopes he can complete changing the nation and the world in a second term. His goal is a socialistic democracy which distributes wealth compassionately and is not controlled or over influenced by commercial and military interests. Despite four years in the White House, Mr. Obama is an enigma to many Americans. For those who dont enjoy reading non-fiction biography, the movie 2016: Obamas America is an alternative. It draws a well-researched picture of his family background, his education, and his life journey. Its serious, but its not the scary movie some folks made it out to be. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 14, 2012 Maybe its time to go back to a career I once had. After viewing some football on television this past week, Ive decided I need to go back to being a football official. Of course, I only worked high school games, but I had 25 years of experience, and evidently that qualifies me to be one of the replacements in the National Football League. I watched the NFL this past weekend, locked into the Red Zone, a cable system channel that gives you highlight coverage of all games as they happen. I saw enough questionable officiating to make me go into the closet and dig for a whistle. The most egregious came on Sunday in the Denver vs. Pittsburgh game. Quarterback Peyton Manning of the Broncos suddenly went to a no-huddle offense, designed to catch the Steelers with too many men on the field. It worked. There was an extra player jogging off the field, right in front of an official. But that official had his back to the ball and had no clue that the ball had been snapped before the extra player got off the field. Its a basic fundamental: Watch the ball. The first call of the season was clipping, which resulted in a half-the-distance penalty. That happened last Wednesday. Unfortunately, the replay showed an average block in the back, a 10yard penalty. In fact, I didnt know they had clipping in the rule book any more. Its been years since Ive seen it called. There were some judgment calls that were questionable, but I learned a long time ago that judgment calls can look one way on TV and be entirely different in person. But not watching the ball? Thats inexcusable. Of course, football is not the only sport that has officiating problems. In a baseball game Saturday, the Yankees lost a chance to tie on the last play of the game when one of their players slid into first (never a smart thing) but was called out, even though replay showed he was obviously safe. But back to football. Its obvious they need me. Of course Im a bit older, cant see as well, have gained some weight over the years and cant run as fast as I used to. But other than those little things. I think Im perfectly qualified. So look for me next Sunday. Ill be the old guy who doesnt move very well. Come to think of it, I may be hard to spot among all those replacement officials.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

We keep hearing about various people analyzing why the school tax levies failed in the recent primary election. To us, its not a complicated thing. First, people dont want more taxes period. You can justify the tax as much as you want, but a lot of folks dont want a tax increase, no matter how small. Second, the School Board made a mistake in rushing this proposal on the ballot in August, because members wanted the money faster. It should have been voted on in November. Lets look at these two reasons. Nobody likes more taxes. There are too many things working against the schools when this happens. The funding for programs failed by a relatively narrow margin apparently more people understood that this vote directly affected what the students learn, what activities they have access to, such as art and music, and this one might have passed if it were on its own. But its apparent from the vote totals that the other choice, for improvements, dragged it down. People see things such as the West Port and Forest high school campuses, which look more like small colleges, and they wonder why in the world money is needed for capital improvements. Even a drive by Hammett Bowen and Liberty Middle provide a look at modern, up-todate facilities. Unfortunately, not all school buildings are in as good condition as some of these facilities, and the children in those areas need help in bringing their buildings up to speed. The schools needed to do a much better selling job on this amendment, and did not do so. Many of the backers chose the doom-and-gloom scenario if it failed, and the public didnt take too kindly to that. Along the campaign trail, we constantly heard how there were too many administrators, and that funds could be saved there. The people werent buying the need for more taxes. Then there was the timing. There were questions raised when this was put on the ballot for the primary. Some felt that the Board was trying to take advantage of having a lot of people out of town in August when the vote was held, but officials said it was necessary to make the funding available earlier. As it turned out, the anti-tax forces turned out for this election, where they may have been outnumbered when November came. The questions turned out to be valid it couldnt pass in August. So now we will read about how programs will be cut and schools will not get fixed. But somehow education will go on. But if it turns out that our schools do need more money, lets hope that officials do a better job of presenting the facts to the voters whenever this comes up again. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY School taxes: Why they failed Is it time to dig out that old whistle? Jim Flynn Columnist An afternoon at the movies with Barack Obama Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Truth check on sonogramsAmid all the verbiage concerning the use of sonograms before abortion, not once has this writer heard any member of the opposition to sonograms tell the truth about the use of sonograms. These supporters of abortion will say: (1) Women should not be forced to have a service that would add cost to the procedure, or (2) women should not have to view a sonogram in order to have the procedure, or (3) forcing women to view a sonogram before the abortion procedure is a violation of her civil rights. There are many other objections to sonograms by such persons but they are too numerous to list here. Whether or not any of these persons speaking out against sonograms knows the truth or not must be left up to someone else to decide. Most opinions are that they know the truth but prefer using their own personal spin in order to condemn the use of sonograms prior to abortion. It is well known by the pro-abortion community that when a pregnant woman sees a sonogram of her unborn child, she is most apt to not abort. Sonograms have seriously cut into abortion profits. The truth is: (1) Abortionists have always used the sonogram as a tool in the procedure a sonogram shows the abortionist the position, the actual size, and the placement of the fetus. This advance information makes for a less timely procedure. (2) Every woman who has had an abortion in the past several years has had a sonogram produced before the abortion. (3) The cost of this sonogram is now, and has always been, included in the complete price of the procedure. Therefore, it is a total falsehood that now women will be charged additionally for sonograms. (4) Abortionists have always known the effectiveness of sonograms, so until laws were PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 are required. Be sure to see Geri soon as these events are quickly sold out.

Ritz House Food Drive Thursday, Oct. 11, the Veterans Club is asking all of our residents to donate to the Ritz House for Veterans Food Drive. Everyone knows that the price of food is going up all the time and we know too that asking you to pick up a few things extra is a hardship. In spite of this, we are asking that each resident put a bag at the curb on the 11th with non-perishable food stuff; cleaning supplies; paper products or similar items that can be used by our Veterans at Ritz House. Ritz House is a home to assist Veterans who are transitioning from alcohol or drug abuse; homelessness and destitution. They are provided with a clean room; counseling; programs and support and in return, they cook all of their own meals and clean the facility. These Veterans are working hard at restoring the lives and they can use all the help we can give them. If you can pick up a couple of extra cans at the grocery store or dollar store; put them in a bag at curbside on the 11th, you will help a needy vet and it wont be too painful at the check out stand. Note we will also be collecting at the craft show on the 13th.SECO to SpeakOn Oct. 4 at 2 p.m., the Cherrywood Veterans Club is featuring a representative from SECO to be the guest speaker.

More than just serving the veterans of Cherrywood, the Veterans Club is here to serve all of our residents whenever possible in gratitude for their support. Make it a point to come to these two meetings and gain insight into the services that are available and the threats we face.Biloxi Get-A-WayHow does four days and three nights at the IP Casino Resort and Spa sound?

On Saturday of Labor Day weekend my daughter Kim was critically injured in a motorcycle accident up in Michigan. She was in intensive care and faces a long recovery. For that reason, my time was totally occupied and I was unable to do a proper interview for a Spotlight subject. Thanks to the answered prayers of family and friends; the expert medical care she is receiving and the expertise of the EMTs, she is making progress. We thank God that she is still with us and are hopeful that while it will be a long process, she will have a complete recovery. On a personal note, I would encourage all of you who ride motorcycles to please wear your helmets. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 No matter how long or short the trip, things can happen in a split second that can be life changing and life threatening. Again, I would like to express my deep appreciation to all of you, especially my Cherrywood family, for your prayers; your love and your good wishes.

One of the funniest roles in the play is the part of a woman with a guilt complex played by Clara Laskay who made her Oak Run debut as a cook in St Louis at the Fair. Her first lines as she enters the squad room, bent on being arrested, are It doesnt matter. Im guilty. Im always guilty. Arrest me. Sentence me. I deserve it. Her lines get more hilarious as the play develops. Then we have a lunatic played by Wendy Panacek who thinks he is from the planet Mars, his brain is a two-way radio and the end of the world was yesterday. He comes and goes, in and out of captivity and he just gets wackier as they try to throw a butterfly net over him. When the funny lines subside some great musical numbers take over. There is never a dull moment. We have a share of romance too when our Detectives Grant, Marci Hutto, and Strindberg, Ray Balliet, are locked in an embrace, caught and threatened by the janitor, Mary Walker, with exposure and possible expulsion from the squad room. Well, we cant give away the plot but you will really be missing something if you dont come see the play. Remember, if you cannot make it to one of the public ticket sales contact a member of WOB or call Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 either of whom will see that you get tickets. Again, the best reserved seats sell out fast so dont delay.Tuesday is bingo nightJoin your friends and neighbors for bingo every Tuesday at the Orchid Club.

Friday, September 14, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, September 14, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your ideas earn you the respect of your colleagues. But youll have to present some hard facts and figures if you hope to persuade those who make the big decisions to support you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Keep those bright Bulls eyes focused on the project at hand. Avoid distractions. Therell be lots of time for fun and games later. Expect to get welcome news this weekend. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You soon might have to decide about moving a relationship from its current status to another level. Dont let anyone influence your decision. It must be yours and yours alone. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You finally can get off that emotional roller coaster and get back to focusing on your goals without interruptions through the rest of the week. A nice change is due by the weekend. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Trying to make an impression on some people runs into a bit of a snag at first, but it all works out. An old and almost forgotten personal matter once again needs attention. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A rise in your energy level helps you finish an especially demanding task. Take some time now to spend with family and friends before starting a new project. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a good time to re-establish contact with trusted former associates who might be able to offer good advice regarding that career change youve been contemplating.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Family matters need your attention. Check things out carefully. There still might be unresolved tensions that could hinder your efforts to repair damaged relationships. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Its a good time to take a stand and show as much passion on your own behalf as you do when arguing for the rights of others. You might be happily surprised by the reaction. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You bring sense and sensitivity to a confusing situation. Things soon settle down, leaving you free to enjoy a weekend of fun and relaxation with friends and family.

Friday, September 14, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, September 14, 2012 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVER TISING On this date in 1948, Milton Berle started his TV career as the host of Tuesdays evening Texaco Star Theater. He was the first major American television star and was so popular that fewer movie tickets were sold on Tuesdays and some theaters, restaurants and other businesses shut down for the hour or closed for the evening. During Berles career of nearly 70 years, he collected more than 10,000 jokes from vaudeville, radio, television and film. Our travels down Pun Alley have found some of them for you.High flyingA man felt so sick that he decided to go to a famous medical clinic three thousand miles from home. He was given a battery of tests, the total cost of which was in the thousands. Twelve specialists agreed on a diagnosis. The man was told that he was in excellent health, but his blood pressure was too high. The man flew back to his home city and hailed a cab. As they rode, the man said to the driver that hed just completed a physical. Before he could explain the results, the cabdriver said, You look to be in excellent health, except maybe your blood pressure is too high.Hillbilly livingA 40-year-old hillbilly carried a younger hillbilly into the doctors office, deposited him on the examining table, and said, See if you can patch him up soon. I shot up his rear end like it was a tail on a possum. Dont hurt him none, because hes my son-inlaw. The doctor said, Why would you shoot your sonin-law? The hillbilly said, He wasnt my son-in-law when I shot him! Later, two hillbillies met and started to converse. One said, I got a darn mule with the fits. What did you give your mule when it had the fits? The other hillbilly said, I gave him a mixture of turpentine and kerosene. The next day the hillbillies met again. The first one said, I gave my mule some of that turpentine and kerosene. The mixture killed him. The other one said, Killed mine too. QuipsWe owe a lot to Thomas Edison; if it wasnt for him, wed be watching television by candlelight. I went to a parachutejumping class. The dropout rate was incredible. The company accountant is shy and retiring. Hes shy a quarter of a million dollars. Thats why hes retiring. A baker quit making donuts because he got tired of the hole thing. A committee is a group that keeps minutes and loses hours. If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands? I just got a brand new pill from my doctor. It has nothing but side effects. You can lead a man to Congress, but you cant make him think. A good wife always forgives her husband when shes wrong. If flowers dont talk back to you, are they mums? I know why Superman left Krypton. Earth was the only place where he could get steroids. He must be a good gardener. He and his plants are both potted. A man told a co-worker, I cant break my wife of the habit of staying up till five in the morning. What is she doing? the co-worker asked. Waiting for me to get home. VegasWhen Berle arrived to do shows in Las Vegas, he saw that some of the hotels are gigantic, more like cities than hotels, I checked into one of the largest. Before I got to my room I owed three days rent. The hotel had a very exclusive restaurant that was so fancy that when somebody ordered Russian dressing, the waiter put on Russian clothes to serve the dish. And when a customer ordered Hungarian goulash, the waiter put on a Hungarian costume. But after I ate there, said Miltie sorrowfully, the cops closed the place down. I never should have ordered that salad without dressing. While in Vegas, Berle would play gin rummy before his evening show and would always win big. But after the show, he would play craps where his luck was always bad, and by the end of the evening, he would have lost everything he had won. Everyone connected with the show knew that Uncle Miltie could certainly handle his gin, but invariably, Miltons pair of dice lost.

Former middle and high school German teacher, Mary Hamblen, is offering to tutor children in German while teaching about the German culture. Call 861-1383 for more information. BY JIM CLARK EditorWhen the Tampa Police Dept. and Hillsborough County Sheriff found out that the Republican National Convention was coming to town, they decided they didnt have the numbers in law enforcement for crowd management, so they put out a notice to state agencies, asking for help. The Marion County Sheriffs Office answered the call, sending 38 members to a week at the gathering. Among those taking part was Sgt. Louis Pulford, who at the time was second in command at the Southwest District Office on State Road 200. The 11-year veteran of the Marion County Sheriffs Office, who is also a former police officer for Williston, has since been transferred to the Oklawaha district. The 38 members were split into four squads. Pulford was one of the squad leaders. The chain of command included a platoon consisting of squads, and a division under the Tampa Police. The local deputies went to Anniston, Alabama, for training. I dont see this type of thing happening in Ocala, he said, but it did provide first-hand crowd management training. The Thursday before the convention was check-in day. Pulford was among those who were put up at a LaQuinta Motel. Friday was a local training day, and then Saturday they went out into the field. We had to drive to the Fairgrounds for breakfast at 4:30 in the morning, and as a supervisor I had a briefing at 5:20, Pulford said, which meant he couldnt oversleep. At about 6 they were bused to their sites, and 12 hours later they were taken back to the Fairgrounds for dinner and a briefing. Sandwiches were served tor lunch. He was assigned to one of four sectors in downtown Tampa, from the east side of the river, Florida Avenue to Ashley Street, and I-275 south to the convention center. There were four parks in the area, and none was really bad. We had no problem with the protesters. He said that some more aggressive protesters come to these sites and try to mix in with the more calm folks, then cause trouble when law enforcement becomes distracted. But with so few protesters, they had no place to hide, Pulford said. Hurricane Isaac definitely had an effect, Pulford said, in keeping the out-of-town protesters from coming. He spoke of the hundreds of arrests four years ago at the convention site in St. Paul, Minnesota, but said from Saturday to Thursday in Tampa they had less than 10 total. Pulford said the emphasis was on tolerance, making sure people could express their First Amendment rights. They didnt want people making poor decisions. He said he was impressed with one Tampa assistant chief who, after lunch one day, took leftover sandwiches and drinks to the protesters. A more radical group had left to go to the RNC site and left the others behind with no food, drink or water. Pulford showed some of the equipment that he had to wear when on duty. He said that on top of his regular uniform, he added 50-60 pounds of crowd management gear, including a vest-like garment, arm guards, shin guards and a helmet with a number on it, all during the August heat of Florida. He said the numbers on the helmet were a great form of accountability. Fortunately, that wasnt needed after the way the crowds behaved, and after the way the 1,600 members of law enforcement handled the crowd management.

BY JIM CLARK EditorA 22-year-old Marion Oaks man is in the Marion County Jail, charged with two counts of felony murder and various other charges. According to reports from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, Azael Angel Stevens of 15670 S.W. 19th Ave. Road, shot and killed his grandmother and great-grandmother on Sept. 9. The victims were identified as Yolanda E. Fruto, 70, and Faustina M. Bontteg, 93, who were killed at the same address. According to the report, another woman who was at the house and her 8-year-old son went to a house next door asking for help. The woman had apparently been shot in the face. Because of the language barrier with the adults, the boy had to describe what happened. The report says that Stevens demanded car keys from the boys mother, then shot her in the face. At some point he allegedly killed the other two women. Two women die in Marion Oaks Felony murder charged Stevens PHOTO BY JIM CLARKConvention dutySgt.
