McENERY DIES AT 92 Obituary, Page 3 CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & Businesses FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2012 VOLUME 18 NUMBER 17 www.smcitizen.com 28 ~ Friday, September 21, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Buy Local Business Expo is SaturdayThe Ocala Marion County Chamber of Commerce Buy Local Business Expo will take place Saturday, Sept. 22, at the Paddock Mall from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. There will be various exhibitors in booths throughout the mall. Amendments to be explainedFormer county commissioner Judy Johnson will discuss the 11 amendments to the Florida Constitution on the ballot in November on Sunday, Sept. 23, at 2 p.m. in Room C at the main library on Silver Springs Boulevard. The ballot measures refer to such diverse subjects as health care, property taxes, state budgets, taxes in general, judicial reform, abortion, religion, and government administration. Ms. Johnson has in previous such talks translated the legal language of the amendments into a form that enables audience members to understand them better and to make an informed decision when voting. The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Ocala Library and admission is free. For information about the Friends, log on to friendsoftheocalalibrary.org. Italian Festival at OTOW PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELThis quartet sang and played Italian music all during the four-hour festival. Circle Square Commons was very crowded recently for the Italian Festival. It seemed like countless padded folding chairs were being brought out for people. The audience was able to choose from several food vendors and Big Scoops Ice Cream, depending on what they were hungry for. Big Scoops had lots of different flavors of ice cream to choose from as well as drinks. The other vendors had an assortment of Italian food to satisfy almost any taste. The juggler, stilt walker and other entertainers were happy that the large crowd had good weather to watch their acts. A quartet played and sang a lot of Italian music. The juggler came right up close to these youngsters but could not persuade them to try juggling. BY JIM CLARK Editor One of the write-in candidates in the Nov. 6 County Commission election appeared at a candidate forum Tuesday, and spoke to the audience and answered questions. Patricia Reed is an opponent of incumbent Stan McClain in the race for County Commission District 3. There is another write-in candidate listed, Robert Brown. McClain won the Republican primary in August over Jeff Gold, and would have been elected had there not been the write-in candidates. There are no Democrats in the race. Although Reed wont be listed on the ballot, she was given the same treatment as other candidates. She was the only one in her race to appear. Among Reeds comments: Shes against the recent decisions to remove impact fees. The impact fees never should have been suspended. She said that shes good at listening to others. She spoke of a recent hearing where the current commissioners werent listening to a lady, who was overrun by the Commission. She said she believes the social service programs are the responsibility of government. She said she doesnt ever see curbside recycling becoming mandatory, particularly with the current Commission. Candidates in various other county races appeared, using the same format. Because of deadlines, their comments will be covered next week. The forum was held at the main library. Write-in candidate appears at forum Reed BY JIM CLARK Editor The Marion County Sheriffs Office is investigating a fraud case that resulted in a man losing several hundred dollars to a scam artist. According to the reports, the man received several phone calls at his place of business and on his cell phone from a person who identified himself as Steve. The suspect told the victim they had met approximately 10 years ago in Leesburg. The victim said the suspect provided enough information to make the victim think they were acquainted. Steve said he worked as a delivery driver for Sears at the Paddock Mall and could offer an employee special, flat screen televisions for $200 each, but the victim had to buy a minimum of five. At the time, the victim said he was not interested, but after repeated phone calls, he agreed, with two other victims, to buy $900 worth of TVs. The victim was told to go to the package pickup area of Sears at the mall. When he arrived there, the suspect called him and said Scam artist gets $900 for non-existent televisions PLEASESEESCAM PAGE3 The mens ministry at Ocala West United Methodist church has kicked off the fall season with a well attended all you can eat breakfast held on Saturday, Sept. 8, which was followed by their fellowship meeting on Tuesday evening, Sept. 11, where they were entertained with a presentation about the Lunar moon landing. The Oct. 9 program will feature a presentation by the Sheriff Department SWAT team and, the all you can eat breakfast will be on Oct. 13 from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Recently they were entertained with a presentation by Carol Borden of Guardian Angels. Guardian Angels is an organization created for the charitable purpose of raising, training, and then donating medical service/assistance dogs to mentally and/or physically impaired individuals. Carol shared with us that there are over 52 million Americans who would benefit from/by having a service dog. Unfortunately, the need far exceeds the supply and is growing annually. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have added to the demand as our servicemen and women are returning with severe physical injuries and many are suffering from PTSD (post traumatic stress syndrome). Their conditions are making it difficult for them to assimilate back into a normal routine of the life they once knew. One such veteran, Michael Gaither, shared with us the struggles he experienced as a result of PTSD, which is furMichael Gaither and his dog Honey.

When I had control of my wardrobe, I put away those shorts and began wearing pants like a man. I think if the good Lord wanted us to wear shorts, in public that is, He would have made our legs more visually appealing. A mans legs are not appealing, unless they have been in the sun too long and the skin begins to peel. A man, especially an old man, has knobby knees, hairy legs and varicose veins none of which should be part of public domain. This is not something I want to see when I am out in public. I can dutifully attest to the fact that my legs have not seen direct sunlight in over 50 years. I attribute this to the fact that I wear pants every day of my life. Not short pants, but pants that go all the way down to my ankles. Short pants look like you cannot afford to buy the whole thing. For some reason I could not watch the game with the same enthusiasm. When I got home that night I settled down a little bit and thought of a verse of Scripture, something Jesus said. Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment (John 7:24 KJV). In spite of my severe old-fogeyitis condition, I must remember not to judge people according to their appearance. It is not what a man looks like but rather, what he does that makes him the man that he is. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

With this pattern on holes # 5, 10 and 15 the team needed to use 3 net scores. One or two net scores were used on the other holes. The winning teams were: first place, JT Lemasters, Noreen Salo, Janet Tully and Ilene Simnowitz; for second place three teams all had the exact same score. Sharing the moneys for second place were Lynn Houghton, Sylvia Zappia, Maureen Edwards, Carole Dygert, Bea Terry, Sheila Adams, Inge Szabo, Elsa Berbig, Judy Klein, Arlene Klann and Barb Davis. I hope the 12 second place team winners do not spend all their winnings in one place! The weather is finally a little more fall-like which makes golf so much more pleasant. ORWGAThe weather is starting to cool down but not the scores of our league players!

Friday, September 21, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, September 21, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good time for the usually outspoken Lamb to be a bit more discreet. You still can get your point across, but do it in a way less likely to turn off a potential supporter. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Good news: All that hard work you put in is beginning to pay off. But you need to watch that tendency to insist on doing things your way or no way. Be a bit more flexible. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might want to delay making a decision on the future of a long-standing relationship until you check out some heretofore hidden details that are just now beginning to emerge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your reluctance to compromise on an important issue could backfire without more facts to support your position. Weigh your options carefully before making your next move. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good time for ambitious Leos or Leonas to shift from planning their next move to actually doing it. Your communication skills help persuade others to join you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Relationships personal or professional present new challenges. Be careful not to let a sudden surge of stubbornness influence how you choose to deal with them. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might need more facts before you can decide on a possible career change. But you should have no problem making a decision about an important personal matter. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Youre respected by most people for your direct, no-nonsense approach to the issues. But be careful you dont replace honest skepticism with stinging sarcasm. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A newly emerging situation could require a good deal of attention and some difficult decision-making. However, close friends will help you see it through. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Family matters need 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) Of course you deserve to indulge yourself in something special. But for now, tuck that bit of mad money away. Youll need it to help with a looming cash crunch. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A temporary setback in your financial situation is eased by changing some of your plans. Youll be able to ride it out quite well until the tide turns back in your favor. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for understanding peoples needs. You have a low tolerance for those who act without concern for others. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

BY DELPHINE BLACHOWICZ HERBERT Three hundred Democrats were fired up and ready to go when they packed the banquet hall of the Hilton recently to hear Grace Nelson lead a salute to women who have been in the forefront of effective change both here and abroad. The proud to be a Democrat dinner goers were welcomed by hostess Dr. Joyce Blake, party state committeewoman and coordinated campaign chair, and Reginald Landers, Jr., recently elected chairman of the Marion County Democratic Executive Committee, both of whom pointed out that the party is moving on up and ready to turn Marion county blue with the relocation of its headquarters to 601 S.W. First Ave. in downtown Ocala. Former Congresswoman Karen Thurman introduced the wife of Florida Senator Bill Nelson as her personal first lady of Florida and an effective ambassador for women and children across the state and around the world. Women know that power is not necessarily in a position, Mrs. Nelson said, citing the influence of transformative politicians spouses such as Eleanor Roosevelt and her friendship with Mary Bethune founder of Daytonas Bethune-Cookman College, and Michelle Obama who with Jill Biden fights for the rights of our military and against the obesity which afflicts the health of our youth and our nation. Nelson spoke movingly of her trips to Rwanda with her husband where almost a million people died in three months during the genocidal tribal warfares of 1994. Despite unspeakable atrocities, the women of Rwanda decided to forgive their oppressors with the result that women now occupy 59 percent of parliament and the country claims the fastest growing GNP in all of Africa. Hate radio started poisoning the minds of the Rwandans, Nelson said, drawing a parallel with those who kill elsewhere with words rather than machetes. This is not the Democratic way nor is it the Republican way voicing her concern that our children are growing up thinking that refusal to compromise or even discuss differing points of view is the norm. Nelson feels that the gaping division between our citizens is a problem even more serious than the economy, the wars or drug addiction. We must see our Earth as my husband did while in space, with no racial, political and religious divisions, just the beautiful home in Norman Rockwells Family of Man portrait where people of all religious backgrounds subscribe to varying versions of the golden rule Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Democratic candidates spoke briefly following Mrs. Nelsons address. They included Clovis Watson, J R. Gaillot, Frank Bruno, Diana Greene, Jessica Hadley and Judge Cochran. The evening concluded with a salute to eight local women who have worked for the common good in our community. They are: Mary Sue Rich, Karen Thurmond, Edwina Harris, Sue Lyons, Juanita Cunningham, Marjorie Renfroe, Loretta Jenkins and Onieda Darling. Events coordinator Sally Eller Smith was workaholic-in-chief who made the evening a resounding success with serious assists from Michele Kudrna, Stephanie Miller, Eunice Dawkins, Nora Traviesio, Sheila Feldman and Jan Lentz.

Friday, September 21, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com B ehind our hardened veneers, most writers are romantics. We like happy endings, particularly in true-life stories. A recent Associated Press article out of Chicago detailed the birth of Elle Cynthia Jordan to her healthy and attractive 53year-old grandmother, Cindy Reutzel. Over the past 30 years test-tube babies have been born to menopausal women as old as their sixties. What was different about the conception and birth of Elle Cynthia Jordan was the ordeal of her biological mother, Emily Jordan. Two years before Elle was conceived in vitro, her mother Emily had been diagnosed with cervical cancer and had to undergo a radical hysterectomy. Before the surgery was performed, it was discovered that Emily was pregnant. Her unborn child was removed with her cancerous uterus. Although Emily would never be able to carry a baby, doctors www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, September 21, 2012 A bout a dozen or so years ago, I was sitting in my newspaper office in New Smyrna Beach when a man came in to see me. He was dressed in rough-looking clothes, and had a long beard that looked as if he hadnt trimmed it in months. I immediately stereotyped him as, well, you can guess, especially since I found out he was a veteran, and weve all heard stories about down and out vets. His name was Tom Ryan, and it turned out he was one of the nicest people I met over there, and one who was most dedicated to what he was trying to accomplish. Tom was on a mission to have a bridge on U.S. Highway 1 between New Smyrna Beach and Port Orange named in honor of POWs and MIAs, thats prisoners of war and those missing in action. It was his passion to keep these peoples plights in front of the public, and, some years after I left, he succeeded. It was Tom who introduced me to POW-MIA Remembrance Day, and the POW-MIA flag. Up to that point, I am ashamed to say I didnt know either existed. The Remembrance Day is observed on the third Friday in September, which is today, Sept. 21. As I write this I havent been notified of any special ceremonies. Many of us remember that big day during the Vietnam War when POWs were released. The joyous reunions with their families were shown nationwide as the country celebrated their return. Some people say there are still POWs over there. Of course, the Rambo movies helped perpetuate this notion. Whether this is true is up for debate, but what is not contested is the list of MIAs, not only from Vietnam but from all other conflicts dating back to World War II. For the families of the POWs who returned home, there were some joyous celebrations as their loved ones came home. But for the families of the MIAs, there were no such events. They are still left with the uncertainty of what happened to their kin who went off to war and never came back. I applaud those who are constantly trying to find out what happened to the MIAs, those who want accountability from the foreign countries in which we fought. With the advances in DNA identification, it is now much easier to take some bones and identify them properly. While the efforts continue, we should all realize what these families and friends are going through, and take a special moment Friday to remember those who were lost, then found, and those who were lost, and havent been located. And if youre ever driving down U.S. 1 in Southeast Volusia County, when you cross that bridge over Spruce Creek make sure you mentally thank Tom Ryan for keep the plight of these folks in out minds.

However, this year may be different. Because there are 11 Florida Constitution amendments on the ballot, and some of them are wordy, the ballot is two pages, 14 inches long, both sides. If everyone waits to vote on Election Day, that could be a disaster. We have visions of people waiting a very long time while those ahead of them try to read through the ballot and figure out which way they are going to vote. And if they let everyone who is on line at 7 p.m. vote, the ballot counting could be delayed by quite a bit. With a bunch of other key races on the ballot, such as U.S. president, U.S. senator, various state races and some Congressional races, it could make for a very long day for poll workers. Of course, we havent even mentioned the local races, especially for County Commission, supervisor of elections, sheriff and school superintendent. So this time, were going to trust election officials and ask you to go ahead and vote ahead of time, either at an early voting site or by absentee ballot. That way you can take your time, especially with the absentee ballots, which you can peruse at your leisure at home, just making sure you get them back on time. Incidentally, because the ballot is so big, its going to cost you 65 cents to mail it back, instead of the normal postage of 45 cents. But as one speaker pointed out at a recent forum, you cant get in your car, start the engine and drive to a polling place for only 65 cents worth of gas. You can also drop the absentee ballots off at the election office, if youre so inclined. So to save yourself a bit of aggravation on Election Day, consider voting early. The count will be long enough without those who vote early, so dont add to the problem. Then you can get on the Internet and watch the returns ... if you can stay up that late. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Voting early may be the answer Take time to remember POWs, MIAs Jim Flynn Columnist A refreshing family power of example Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR READER OPINIONS INVITED who removed her uterus salvaged her ovaries. Two years later Emily and her husband Mike were ready to try for an invitro fertilization using Emilys ovaries and Mikes sperm. They needed a healthy body in which their test-tube baby could grow until birth. Emilys mother, Cindy Reutzel, volunteered. The details of the pregnancy and delivery are better understood and enjoyed by women. Our interest focused on the wrenching decision which Emily and Mike Jordan had to make about removal of her malignant uterus and their unborn child. Was there a place for government in the Jordan familys deliberations and decisions? We think not. The Jordans wisely limited their deliberations and decisions to themselves, their family, and their physicians. In the days leading up to the delivery of Elle Cynthia Jordan, the national political parties were updating their opinions about abortion. Notwithstanding the baseless but binding decision in Roe v. Wade, The Republican platform asserts that every conceived child has a right to life, no matter what the circumstances. On the other hand, Democrats defend Roe v. Wade, because abortion is a personal decision which they insist has no place for politicians or government, They say their endorsement is without conditions or qualifications, but they make an exception that taxpayers should guarantee ability to pay an hypocrisy not mentioned in Roe v. Wade. Politicians and righteous dogooders cannot resist defining and redefining other peoples natural rights and liberties. They are intrusive and arrogant, as well as hypocritical. Meddling in peoples lives seems to require significant time and attention which our politicians could better devote to the neglected work for which they were elected. The difficult and painful decisions made by the Jordan family were right for them, and required no assistance from government or politicians. Any other independent decision they might have made would have been just as right. Congratulations to the Jordan family and grandma Cindy Reutzel for doing the right thing twice. Become a prayer warriorOur world is at war Holy War. Ours is a battle of wills, a battle of ideals, a battle for souls. We battle to name our worlds Creator and to enforce our own vision of what that Creator God intends for all of us. In doing so, we risk losing sight of Gods plan of peace for all of his people. And in taking all into our own hands, we also risk losing sight of the fact that we are not God. We are not Creator and we are not enforcer. We are all Gods children, beloved of our Father. But in adulthood, many are acting like quarreling, selfish children, ever fighting to establish dominance and domain over others, even at the risk of losing the only possession they can carry with them from this earth, their soul. Where do you stand in this battle? Do you remember the hymn Onward Christian Soldiers? Is your faith worth fighting for? Have you forgotten because you have been indoctrinated into political correctness that as a citizen of the United States you have been given the right to speak out when your values are threatened? Are you already afraid to speak your mind, even to your friends, when abortion, same-sex marriage, restraint of religious freedom, Dont ask, dont tell, and other non-Christian values are being forced upon our society by the politically correct? We are in a Holy War. The future of our country is at risk. Our freedoms are at risk most importantly, our freedoms of speech and our freedom of religion. Many are willing to ignore the downward path along which we are being led. Others find it much easier to sit by and wring their hands, forwarding emails to those who agree with their position and hoping that those who either disagree with them, or just dont care, wont vote. But can we take that risk? God our Creator has gave us a plan and his hope for our earthly existence. In Galatians 5: 22-23, God promises us that when his Holy Spirit controls our lives we will experience love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. What a wonderful way to live! Imagine living in a world of love, joy, and peace. Imagine living among people who are patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and who practice self-control. Is such a world possible? Can we ever hope for such a blessed existence in this life? Over two thousand years ago PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE9 ther complicated by a debilitating illness. He told us how he was a prisoner of his own home. All the coaching and nagging (his words) by his wife couldnt budge him. Finally, his wife, Marilyn Kaye, solicited help from Carol Borden and they finally wore him down to the point where he agreed to visit the Guardian Angel facility. He said it was love at first sight when he met one of the dogs in training. He was completely oblivious to the conversation taking place between his wife and Carol. Well, the result was Michael received his very own service dog, Honey; and a honey she is. Michael then found that his PTSD and physical limitations no longer kept him a prisoner in his own home. Even though he is confined to a wheelchair, he looks forward to getting out with his two best friends by his side. He also shared about how it was unsafe for his wife to wake him up when he was experiencing one of his nightmares, but that Honey is able to sense his distress and is able to gently arouse him. Service dogs provide a variety of duties, including being alert for other medical conditions. They have been trained to detect when their masters are about to experience an episode even before the signs are evident; including diabetic shock or epileptic seizures to name a few. We were all enlightened, if not surprised as to the many benefits a service dog provides to those with varying conditions. The biggest challenge today is to be able to meet the increased demand. It takes a lot of money and a lot of time to train a dog for a specific duty. Not all dogs make it through the rigid training program, so sometimes they have to start over again with another dog. Guardian Angels is a charitable organization that receives minimal government assistance and relies on the generosity of the caring public.

Wed., Sept. 26 11:00 a.m. God gave us Christ to demonstrate how to live according to his will. God doesnt demand that we live that way. He always gives us choice. But what God does ask is that each and every day, as we make decisions about our own life, we realize that our decisions also affect others. In our earthly family, as in any family, our decisions affect how we are perceived by others, how we get along with others, and ultimately, how we share our vision of God our Creator with others. We all know that reasonable dialogue in todays world can be difficult. Havent you noticed how political discussions on television often end in shouting matches with nothing resolved? Isnt this our fear if we confront our friends and neighbors with our concerns for our country? So what do we do? Have you heard the term prayer warrior? Wikipedia says Prayer Warrior is a term used by many evangelical and other Protestant Christians to refer to anyone who is committed to praying for others. Other denominations have prayer warriors, too. I know that our Catholic church does. What Im asking of you is that you become a Prayer Warrior for our country. Pray for the United States, our country in which so many have turned away from God in their homes, God in our schools, God in our courts of law (laws which were originally founded on Gods Ten Commandments) and even In God We Trust as our motto. If you truly trust in God, become a prayer warrior for the USA and our world. Inundate Heaven with prayers for the continued existence of this country, a country founded on Godly principles and the hope of many who want only to live in peace and love. Remember, prayer doesnt change God, prayer changes us and through us, our neighbors, our country and our world. Shirley Strauss Ocala Destabilized MideastStrong leadership in the Mideast kept this part of the world under control and balanced to the point that their governments were in control of events. American leadership does not seem to understand that these Arab states are not democracies and their people have never been schooled in respecting election results. It is my opinion and I believe that the present problems started when we invaded Iraq and removed their countries strong leader. When we removed Saddam we removed one of the stabilizing leaders who was a factor in this part of the world. This hated leader of Iraq was not a nice guy and he held no love for his people. He was a leader who controlled his people and had a strong influence in this part of the world. No other country would test his resolve for fear of attack from this mad man who should have been in an institution rather than a leader of a country. We started a chain of events that have destabilized countries to the point where its citizens have taken over but still dont know how to control their own religious factions. Iran is now one of the leaders in this part of the world with a military that is controlled by people who dont have the best interest of their country at heart. America had a strong part in this change but we dont see it and if we did we would not admit our mistake. Egypt has just finished a civil war that has removed their leader who was really a military dictator that ruled by brute force. Our government thought it would be a good thing to have another democracy in this part of the world. Syria is presently being terrorized by its military under the orders of its leader who may or may not survive this revolution. Again our presence in this part of the world has influenced the Syrian peoples actions. The world is the big loser by our involvement in destabilizing the Mideast. Jerry Segovis Ocala Un-American and manipulative Now theres three descriptions of people who dont seem to have our countrys best interests at heart. Ill identify the three, then go deeper into each. First, are the people who created the video that criticized Muhammad, and the Islamic community. This is next to treason. Thank God, President Obama had the good sense apologized for it and assured the Islamic people, it was not the American way. Then, the part, where Mitt Romney criticized the president for the apology. Romney using a political speech to criticize the president, showing that Romney was not interested in diplomacy, but in his own political well being in the political process. This from a man who received four draft deferments, so he could pass out leaflets in France and other areas. he has no sense of foreign policy. Just look at the Olympics this year. Finally, President Obama called President Netanyahu, of Israel, on the Sept. 9, to tell him we were following a peaceful process regarding Iran, and their nuclear program, before considering and military action. Now, the president of Israel wants a military solution, even though it could be a disaster and possibly start WWIII. This according to the former Mussad chief on 60 Minutes on Sunday, Sept. 16. He in fact said if Irsael attacked Iran, Tel Aviv would cease to exist the next day. The strange part is, this anti-Islamic video was made days or even weeks before it was released in the Islamic language.

Lions Club On Saturday, Aug. 18, the SE Canine Companion Independence (CCI) Regional Training Center in Orlando held its quarterly graduation and puppy matriculation ceremony: Lions Peter Dodd, PDG John Redden, Ken Greve, Joan Greve, and Virginia Redden. The CCI graduation ceremony presents a person who has been matched with a dog who has finished his/her two weeks of intensive advance training. This training teaches these teams (person/canine) the commands and how to care for the CCI dog. The physically disabled (but not blind) and the companion canine graduate together and then go to their respective homes to begin their live together. There is also a puppy matriculation ceremony is which the puppy raisers have finished their work socializing the pups and teaching them basic obedience. The pups are now about 18-22 months old, and they are ready for their advance training, or college, as those involved like calling it. For example, Kabell is a 20-month old canine that has been turned over to the SE CCI regional training center for advanced training.

Amendments, travel, and a graduation OTOW HAPPENINGS Young boy succeeds in clearing mans nameLEFT FOR DEAD By Pete Nelson Several years ago in Pensacola, Florida, a father and his 11-year-old son were watching their favorite movie, Jaws. In one scene the actors discuss the sinking of the USS Indianapolis in which 800 were thrown into the shark-infested waters of the Pacific in the last months of WWII. The boy, Hunter Scott, is intrigued and decides to make the subject his project for the schools history fair. That decision eventually led to the exoneration of the disgraced ships Captain Charles McVay, who was court-marshaled for hazarding his ship and crew and who, after 23 years of hate mail from families of the men who perished, took his own life at his home in Litchfield, Connecticut. Hunter wrote hundreds of letters to the survivors asking for information about the sinking and was flooded with responses. Accompanied by his father he visited many of the men and recorded their personal narratives. Slowly the secrets of the tragedy began to unravel and point not only to the Navy but also to setting up McVay as the scapegoat. Among the blame placed on the Navy was McVays request for an escort and its refusal, assurances that his planned route to Guam was safe from enemy submarines when in fact just days before the sinking Japanese subs had been sighted in the area. Repairs to the USS Indianapolis had been interrupted because the ship was to carry the atom bomb to Tinian Island to be loaded on to the Enola Gay. Without sufficient repairs to the venting systems, on the night the torpedoes struck, the hatches were all open to allow air to circulate and this hastened the sinking. Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington The stories told were harrowing. Sharks picked off the men one by one; men hallucinated, and believing that deep water was fresh, drank it and died. There was even some evidence of cannibalism although the men avoided the subject. One thing was clear. They admired their captain. One survivor said of the court martial, That was the worst thing the navy could have done. It dishonored the captain and the crew. Ill never sail again, but if I did, I would want Capt. McVay as my captain because he was one of the finest men Ive ever met. Publicity about Hunters fair project brought him many powerful friends and supporters including Congressman Joe Scarborough and Senator John Warner. A young boy, then, succeeded in clearing a good mans name where many previous efforts had failed. But to date the Navy has not apologized for its role in the tragedy.

Friday, September 21, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, September 21, 2012 www.smcitizen.com dent talked to the president of Israel, the video was released. Do you believe in coincidences? I dont. This caused the needless deaths of four outstanding Americans, and incited Libya, and Egypt to riots. Then another 15 countries joined in these riots and shortly thereafter, another 13 countries joined the demonstrations. When the president offered to send in Marines to support our embassies in these countries, Sudan refused them. Then on Sunday, Sept. 16, the Israeli president pleaded with the American people to intervene in our own political process, to elect a man who would take military action against Iran. Romney has already said he would do just that, as he is a friend of the Israeli president. Can you imagine another countrys president trying to influence our political process? Israel gets the largest amount of foreign aid from the United States, than any other country, and Egypt is a close second. These countries would not have survived without our support as well as Libya. Israel wouldnt even exist. There are too many coincidences, not to follow this scenario Ive put forth. Then you add that to the remarks Romney made against percent of the American people, who he said are either poor, have no backbone, are lazy, want free handouts, and are on Social Security and Medicare. In short, they should be taken care of by their own families and not the government. He still feels Social Security and Medicare are entitlement programs and wants them to cease. I wonder if he ever paid into Social Security? I doubt it. This guy just is not in touch with America or the American people. I guess silver spoons are like that. So lets send him home, wherever that might be, Michigan, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island or somewhere else. Then he can count his money in whichever countries in which it might be stashed. Just remember a very old piece of good advice, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, and we all know what Bushes are like, dont we? Bill Ford Oak Run LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 State of the Unions A recent New York Post story stated that the Metropolitan Transit Authority might scrap MetroCard (a mass-transit commuter card) discounts in 2013. The reason? To pay for escalating health-benefit and pension costs for transit workers active and retired. The city of New York says it cant pay the additional costs from its coffers. New Yorkers will also get fare increases in coming years to offset escalating union-costs. These moves will obviously hurt the tens of thousands who rely on the discounted, lower fares. This is another instance where many people must make sacrifices so that some union workers can enjoy inflated salaries and benefits. This is by no means a condemnation of unions. Unions are necessary to protect workers from employer abuses and too negotiate realistic salary/benefit packages. But, some unions hold employers hands to the fire to obtain inflated packages ... which we citizens ultimately pay for through higher taxes, fees, and costs. President Obama needs union support to win reelection. So hes playing nice with the unions. But if he continues, his more moderate supporters might become disenchanted with him. So, whats a president to do? Simple! He has two alternatives: either throw Americans under the bus ... again ... and back the unions, or, if hes truly concerned about the American people, do the right thing and condemn union excesses ... but thats not very likely to happen!

RELIGION T emperatures, both day and night, have been decreasing; days are getting shorter; and breezes have picked up. It is becoming very pleasant to be outside. All signify that autumn is near. Actually, it officially begins tomorrow. I have really been anticipating this. Last night I dreamed I was a dry withered stalk of corn. Suddenly, my corn stalk buddies and I were cut down and stacked in the middle of the harvested field. I was shocked. Mud flap During last months heavy rains two guys were camping in the national forest. Drinking beer all day while waiting for the rains to stop, they got disgusted and decided to leave. They ran through puddles to their car, started it, and stepped on the gas, laughing and still drinking beer. All of a sudden an old mans face appeared in the window and he tapped on it. The passenger screamed, Look at my window. Theres an old guy there! The old man kept knocking, so the driver stepped harder on the gas. With the speedometer showing 80 miles an hour, they calmed down until there was a knock on the window and the old man appeared again. Oh no! The passenger rolled down the window and screamed, What do you want? The old man replied, You want some help getting out of this mud? Falling leavesA woman bought a magnolia tree from a nursery, but after only a few weeks, its leaves shriveled and it appeared to be on its last legs. She took some leaf samples back to the nursery and demanded an explanation. Oh, I know exactly whats wrong with your magnolia tree, maam, said the manager. Good, she replied. What is it? He said, autumn. ShortfallsThis is an exciting autumn. Our athletes finished breaking records for Olympic medals, and now our presidential candidates are starting to break records for the most campaign promises. I changed my iPods name to Titanic. Now its syncing. People love autumn in New York City the yellows, the browns, and the rust, and thats just the drinking water. Ah yes, summers out and autumns in, from swimming pools to football pools. When crazy people go through the forest they take the psycho path. Cable TV has a 24-7 weather channel. We had something like that where I grew up. We called it a window. The earthquake in Washington was obviously the governments fault. TV cant be wrongRecently a newscaster ended his evening news program by saying, More on candidates at 10 p.m. Thats the first time they actually called politicians morons on national television. Running AwayA man scolded his son for bitterly complaining about school. The child rebelled and got some of his clothes, his teddy bear and his piggy bank and proudly announced, Im running away from home! The father asked, What if you get hungry? Then Ill come home and eat, declared the child. And what if you run out of money? I will come home and get some. What if your clothes get dirty? Then Ill come home and let mommy wash them, was the reply. The man shook his head and exclaimed, This kid is not running away from home; hes going off to college. Well preservedMay and her mother lived in California where most of the farmers grew grapes for wine while May used the grapes for her preserves. One day, deciding to try something new, they bought a barrel of kumquats and her mother began the preparation for boiling and sugaring and the rest. Finally, when her mother had everything all set, she called to her daughter to tell her that her part of the work could begin. She called out, Kumquat, May, were ready.Say what?A young lady was a theater major applying for fall semester classes. At the end of the busy day she went back to her dorm in a huff of anger. Whats wrong, Shelly? asked her roommate. Well, all the acting classes are filled. I couldnt even get into Mime class. Why not? How should I know? You cant get a word out of those people! Thats all folks! You cant get any more words out of me today; weve come to the end of the Alley.

O K, right up front I want to confess that I am an old fogey. In my defense, as if I needed one, I was born an old fogey. I have what may be called old-fogeyitis, a rare psychological disorder only affecting people born of woman. For many years, I beat myself over the head because I did not understand old fogeyitis syndrome. Years ago, I have learned to accept it, whether others accept it or not is not my problem. It was a wonderful day when I realized I could have a lot of other things much worse than old-fogeyitis. Just this week I saw an article in the picture of supposedly the ugliest woman in the world. As I looked at her picture, it reminded me of one of my old aunts. I know Im not the prettiest face in town but I wasnt born this way. My face is the result of the stress through the years from the old-fogeyitis syndrome. One of the amazing traits of this syndrome is the marvelous selective memory. My memory is so good I can remember things that never happened. Some people look at me when I recall one of these pseudomemories as if I was senile. Oh no. It is not senility it is old-fogeyitis. I really did not know how bad it was until this past week. My oldest granddaughter was playing softball and invited me to come and watch her first game. She made me one of those offers that I couldnt refuse. It has been a long time since I seen a slow pitch softball game much less played in one. I remembered those glorious days of yesteryear when I played slow pitch softball. According to my memory, I was the star pitcher on my team. What memories they were. Since they are my memories, I feel I have the right to make them what I want them to be. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, our youngest daughter and her daughter joined me as we watched my granddaughters first game. We brought our own chairs so we were able to set up our seating arrangements where we could watch our granddaughter play her first game. I am not prejudiced, but from where we were sitting, she was the star player on her team. I am not sure how her team could ever get along without her. It is my humble opinion that greatness like this is inherited. You do not learn that kind of thing on your own, it is something that is passed down to you through your genes. I must have passed it on to her because I do not have it anymore. It was then that I saw it, which kicked in the old-fogeyitis syndrome. What I saw shocked me and it takes a lot to shock me. Up to this point, I was primarily focused on my granddaughter and her pristine playing on the field, so I did not see right away what I eventually saw. It happened when my granddaughter stepped up to bat for the first time. After that, the whole game went blank for me. Behind my lovely granddaughter was the catcher all dressed in the catchers outfit. That did not startle me. Behind the catcher was the umpire, or so he was pretending to be, and that is what startled me. It was a girls slow pitch softball team and every one of them was dressed in their softball players outfit. I believe in dressing for the occasion. The occasion was a softball game and those involved in the softball game were wearing attire consistent with the game at hand. Then I saw the umpire. And the umpire was wearing shorts! Shorts!

Spotlight on Excellence Normally we feature a resident of Cherrywood who has had a remarkable past; a promising future or who has made a contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week we stray just a bit from that tradition and honor the daughter of long time residents, Louis and MaryAnn Hauguel, Monica Wheaton as she retires from the U.S. Air Force. Monica L. Wheaton graduated in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Saint Marys College, University of Notre Dame in Indiana. At the same time as her graduation, she received her commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force through the Reserve Officer Training Corps. Starting in the Medical/Surgical unit, her keen interest in obstetrics allowed her to move into becoming a labor delivery nurse. Monica was assigned to Cuba where she worked with a group of OB/GYN nurses and midwives assisting refugees. She received strong encouragement to attain her advanced medical training through the Air Force Institute of Technology. By 1997 Monica had completed her 2nd Masters Degree in Nursing and began her midwifery practice. In this field she has encouraged and mentored many students; has been a preceptor for numerous midwifery and nurse practitioner candidates and worked closely with physician assistants and family practice residents to militarily, Monica has attended Squadron Officer School at Maxwell AFB in Alabama and graduated from Air Command and Staff College. She has worked her way up the ranks from Nurse Intern to the Acting Chief Nurse, Scott AFB IL. Through hard work; dedication and professionalism, Monica attained the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in her 23 years of service. Among the many awards and decorations that Monica has received are, the Air Force Training Ribbon with oak leaf cluster; Humanitarian Service Medal; Global War on Terrorism Service Medal; Air Force Outstanding Unit Award with 6 oak leaf clusters; National Defense Service Medal; Joint Meritorious Unit Award and Air Force Commendation Medal with oak leaf cluster. Lt. Colonel Wheaton has served with distinction at bases from Alabama to Lakenheath England and from Lackland Air Force Base, Texas to Andrews AFB near Washington, D.C. On Aug. 17 of this year, MaryAnn and Louis went to Scott Air Force Base in Illinois to witness the retirement ceremony of Monica. She was honored with speeches by various dignitaries; by her friends and co-workers. At the conclusion of the ceremony, she was given the U.S. Air Force Meritorious Service medal to add to her long list of honors. She and her husband John plan to retire to Hondo, Texas, with their two daughters, MaryBeth who is 10 and AnnMarie who is 4. During her career, the children were raised by John who is a self described Mr. Mom. Of course Grandma MaryAnn and Grandpa Louis were often called upon during Monicas deployments to offer assistance in this area. From the way their faces light up when they describe their grandchildren, it was certainly a labor of love for both of them. Louis and MaryAnn moved to Cherrywood 15 years ago from the area of South Bend, Indiana. In addition to their daughter Monica, they have a son, Mark who still lives in Indiana. Mark is an electronics engineer and is married to Lisa. They have a son, Anthony who just started high school. MaryAnn and Louis are justly proud of Monica and of her many accomplishments. We also are proud of Monica Wheaton for her stellar service to not only the United States, but to the needy of this world. We are grateful to MaryAnn and Louis for raising such a person as Monica and for being a part of this community. Monica, we, your Cherrywood family; salute you; thank you, and wish you and your family the very best in your retirement. From Your ReporterYour suggestions, comments and ideas for stories for the Cherrywood section of the Citizen are always welcome. Please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. My sincere thanks to all who have prayed for my daughter and expressed their concern and hope for my family. Thankfully, Kim continues to make progress; slowly but surely. Again, Thank you.

Vanity of vanities, all is vanity. A more precise translation is, Utter futility! All is futile! (1:2) This famous quotation from a book of wisdom in the Hebrew Bible has long fascinated readers of the Bible. I, like many others, thought the word vanity referred to our personal appearance, in newer translations, it refers to the futility of life, pushing against the tide of things we cannot change or trying to do things or put into action things we are not able to achieve. The title, Ecclesiastes, refers to the term that means the preacher, known in this book as Kohelet, often thought of as King Solomon in his later years. The first declaration in the book claims that the writer, Kohelet, is son of David, king in Jerusalem. He considers wisdom to be a precious commodity and since Solomon was the wisest of Jewish kings, the tradition holds that the book was written by King Solomon. Modern historians dispute this traditional thinking and believe that the book was written much later in history. The book, found in Ketuvim, or the writings, almost did not make it into the body of sacred literature. It was felt that some passages contradicted the Torah or were self-contradictory, however, the book was included because it mentioned that one should fear heaven and despite its sometimes pessimistic views on life, the book put forth true teachings of following Gods commandments and reverence for God. The Midrash tradition of explanation, tells us that the vanity of vanities mentioned in the first part of the book refers to earthly pursuits, (under the sun) while the spiritual, or Torah way is above the sun eternal and beyond time. The writer Kohelet, takes a rather jaded view of life in the writings and one can tell that he is in the autumn of his life. It is for this reason that this book, actually one of the five scrolls or megilot in the Hebrew bible, is read in the autumn season, at this time of year, during the Sukkot or Festival of Booths holiday. To the casual observer, it seems strange to read such a pessimistic book on such as joyous festival such as Sukkot. Closer examination will reveal that the book forces a confrontation between faith and reason and one can reconcile with the other within the bounds of the Jewish faith. It took a folk-rock group in the 1960s called the Byrds to record the famous passage about the turning of life (3:1-8) with its familiar refrain of turn, turn, turn, and an anti-war message added by folk singerwriter Peter Seger, to propel this ancient wisdom into pop culture. To everything there is a season and purpose under heaven. Throughout the book, Kohelet muses over things he has observed in his life. His observations are timeless and appeal to us today as when they were written thousands of years ago. He notes that with wickedness there is justice and sometimes the wicked prosper and sometimes the righteous flourish. If misfortune happens, one is suppose to reflect and try to make best of it. In terms of prosperity, one must remember that wealth is temporary and can be easily taken away as quickly as it was obtained, so it is best to enjoy life while one is able and to thank God for the privilege. In our everyday lives we often use expressions found in the Book Ecclesiastes: All rivers run to the sea (1:7) the race is not to the swift (9:11) and this famous Jewish axiom often used at funerals to describe a righteous person: A good name is better than fragrant oil, and the day of death than the day of birth. (7:1) May we keep in mind the wisdom found in Ecclesiastes for truly nothing is new under the sun.

Now more than ever, your donations are needed and are greatly appreciated. Veterans Club opens doorsOn Oct. 4 at 2 p.m., the Cherrywood Veterans Club will host a guest speaker from SECO, our local power company. In order to say thank you to our local community, the meeting is open to all Cherrywood residents regardless of veteran status. The guest speaker will talk about how to save money on your electric bills; how to report problems; trouble shooting; what to do in case of power outages and many other interesting topics. In addition to this meeting, the Nov. 1 meeting is also open to our residents. Our guest will be from the Metro Marion County Crime Prevention Division of the Sheriffs Office. He/she will be speaking on subjects like identity theft; ways to protect yourself and your property; and crime prevention. Our Veterans Club is grateful for all of the support they receive from our community and this is a way to return that kindness. The veterans hope that everyone will take advantage of these informative and interesting opportunities. Senior safe driving classThere are still a few openings in the AARP senior safe driving class scheduled for November. Two classes were offered originally but the first class is filled and the second class is filling fast. Dont hesitate to contact Geri to sign up right away. The two part class will be held in the library of the clubhouse on Nov. 26 and Nov. 29 from 9 a.m. until noon. Students must attend both classes to get credit. Now for the good news; if you are a veteran; a widow of; or the spouse or dependent of a veteran; the class is totally free. Thats right, veterans and their dependents are free but for non-veterans, AARP members are only $12 and for those who are not either; the class is just $14. One of the many benefits of attending this class is the certificate that comes upon completion. You can show that document to your insurance company and receive lowered premiums. Contact your agent to see how much you can save with this class. If the class were not free; if there were no financial benefits for completion; this class would still be worthwhile; it could save your life or the life of a loved one.

The first show starts at 5:30 p.m. and the second begins at 7:30 p.m. (Note: the 5:30 show is nearly filled) Rene is hilarious with her dry and profound delivery of original material and unique style. In addition to being one of the first to go to Guantanamo Cuba, she has performed across America; Canada and the Caribbean at the top Comedy Clubs. Rene has opened for such famous people as Red Hot Chili Peppers; Steppenwolf and Billy Ray Cyrus. She has also appeared on Montel; 20/20 and Geraldo among many more. This event is sponsored by Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management and is free to all residents. Tickets are required and seating is limited so be sure to see Geri to get your tickets. This is one funny night you will not want to miss. Crafters at CherrywoodYoull want to be at the clubhouse between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Oct. 13 for a special craft show. Vendors from all over, including our very own Cherrywood artisans will be displaying their unique and beautiful creations for sale to the public. You need not be a resident to come and shop. There will be a large variety of gifts and goods including such items as wind chimes; purses; candles; jewelry; beaded angels; brightly decorated wine bottles; flower arrangements and much, much more. The craftsmanship is high quality and the prices reasonable so why shop anywhere else for those unique holiday gifts that will put smiles on the faces of all who receive them. The Veterans Club will have a table set up for donations of food to the Ritz House for Veterans. Bring a few canned goods; cleaning supplies or other nonperishable items and help a veteran while enjoying the show. Speaking of food, why not have a great tasting lunch while you shop? Chicken and tuna salad sandwiches with chips, is just $3; hot dog and chips only $1.50. Have a glass of iced tea or lemonade with your lunch for 50 cents more. Bring your friends and family and make this a special day out together. Flu Shots From 1 until 3 p.m. on Oct. 19, flu shots will be available in the clubhouse. We urge you all to get your shots so this flu season youll be protected and able to attend all of the fun activities available at Cherrywood.

Vanity of vanities, all is vanity. A more precise translation is, Utter futility! All is futile! (1:2) This famous quotation from a book of wisdom in the Hebrew Bible has long fascinated readers of the Bible. I, like many others, thought the word vanity referred to our personal appearance, in newer translations, it refers to the futility of life, pushing against the tide of things we cannot change or trying to do things or put into action things we are not able to achieve. The title, Ecclesiastes, refers to the term that means the preacher, known in this book as Kohelet, often thought of as King Solomon in his later years. The first declaration in the book claims that the writer, Kohelet, is son of David, king in Jerusalem. He considers wisdom to be a precious commodity and since Solomon was the wisest of Jewish kings, the tradition holds that the book was written by King Solomon. Modern historians dispute this traditional thinking and believe that the book was written much later in history. The book, found in Ketuvim, or the writings, almost did not make it into the body of sacred literature. It was felt that some passages contradicted the Torah or were self-contradictory, however, the book was included because it mentioned that one should fear heaven and despite its sometimes pessimistic views on life, the book put forth true teachings of following Gods commandments and reverence for God. The Midrash tradition of explanation, tells us that the vanity of vanities mentioned in the first part of the book refers to earthly pursuits, (under the sun) while the spiritual, or Torah way is above the sun eternal and beyond time. The writer Kohelet, takes a rather jaded view of life in the writings and one can tell that he is in the autumn of his life. It is for this reason that this book, actually one of the five scrolls or megilot in the Hebrew bible, is read in the autumn season, at this time of year, during the Sukkot or Festival of Booths holiday. To the casual observer, it seems strange to read such a pessimistic book on such as joyous festival such as Sukkot. Closer examination will reveal that the book forces a confrontation between faith and reason and one can reconcile with the other within the bounds of the Jewish faith. It took a folk-rock group in the 1960s called the Byrds to record the famous passage about the turning of life (3:1-8) with its familiar refrain of turn, turn, turn, and an anti-war message added by folk singerwriter Peter Seger, to propel this ancient wisdom into pop culture. To everything there is a season and purpose under heaven. Throughout the book, Kohelet muses over things he has observed in his life. His observations are timeless and appeal to us today as when they were written thousands of years ago. He notes that with wickedness there is justice and sometimes the wicked prosper and sometimes the righteous flourish. If misfortune happens, one is suppose to reflect and try to make best of it. In terms of prosperity, one must remember that wealth is temporary and can be easily taken away as quickly as it was obtained, so it is best to enjoy life while one is able and to thank God for the privilege. In our everyday lives we often use expressions found in the Book Ecclesiastes: All rivers run to the sea (1:7) the race is not to the swift (9:11) and this famous Jewish axiom often used at funerals to describe a righteous person: A good name is better than fragrant oil, and the day of death than the day of birth. (7:1) May we keep in mind the wisdom found in Ecclesiastes for truly nothing is new under the sun.

The Cherrywood Veterans Club has provided support for Ritz House from its very beginnings. We are proud to be able to help our fellow veterans and are counting on you for assistance in making their lives a little better. Now more than ever, your donations are needed and are greatly appreciated. Veterans Club opens doorsOn Oct. 4 at 2 p.m., the Cherrywood Veterans Club will host a guest speaker from SECO, our local power company. In order to say thank you to our local community, the meeting is open to all Cherrywood residents regardless of veteran status. The guest speaker will talk about how to save money on your electric bills; how to report problems; trouble shooting; what to do in case of power outages and many other interesting topics. In addition to this meeting, the Nov. 1 meeting is also open to our residents. Our guest will be from the Metro Marion County Crime Prevention Division of the Sheriffs Office. He/she will be speaking on subjects like identity theft; ways to protect yourself and your property; and crime prevention. Our Veterans Club is grateful for all of the support they receive from our community and this is a way to return that kindness. The veterans hope that everyone will take advantage of these informative and interesting opportunities. Senior safe driving classThere are still a few openings in the AARP senior safe driving class scheduled for November. Two classes were offered originally but the first class is filled and the second class is filling fast. Dont hesitate to contact Geri to sign up right away. The two part class will be held in the library of the clubhouse on Nov. 26 and Nov. 29 from 9 a.m. until noon. Students must attend both classes to get credit. Now for the good news; if you are a veteran; a widow of; or the spouse or dependent of a veteran; the class is totally free. Thats right, veterans and their dependents are free but for non-veterans, AARP members are only $12 and for those who are not either; the class is just $14. One of the many benefits of attending this class is the certificate that comes upon completion. You can show that document to your insurance company and receive lowered premiums. Contact your agent to see how much you can save with this class. If the class were not free; if there were no financial benefits for completion; this class would still be worthwhile; it could save your life or the life of a loved one.

O K, right up front I want to confess that I am an old fogey. In my defense, as if I needed one, I was born an old fogey. I have what may be called old-fogeyitis, a rare psychological disorder only affecting people born of woman. For many years, I beat myself over the head because I did not understand old fogeyitis syndrome. Years ago, I have learned to accept it, whether others accept it or not is not my problem. It was a wonderful day when I realized I could have a lot of other things much worse than old-fogeyitis. Just this week I saw an article in the picture of supposedly the ugliest woman in the world. As I looked at her picture, it reminded me of one of my old aunts. I know Im not the prettiest face in town but I wasnt born this way. My face is the result of the stress through the years from the old-fogeyitis syndrome. One of the amazing traits of this syndrome is the marvelous selective memory. My memory is so good I can remember things that never happened. Some people look at me when I recall one of these pseudomemories as if I was senile. Oh no. It is not senility it is old-fogeyitis. I really did not know how bad it was until this past week. My oldest granddaughter was playing softball and invited me to come and watch her first game. She made me one of those offers that I couldnt refuse. It has been a long time since I seen a slow pitch softball game much less played in one. I remembered those glorious days of yesteryear when I played slow pitch softball. According to my memory, I was the star pitcher on my team. What memories they were. Since they are my memories, I feel I have the right to make them what I want them to be. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, our youngest daughter and her daughter joined me as we watched my granddaughters first game. We brought our own chairs so we were able to set up our seating arrangements where we could watch our granddaughter play her first game. I am not prejudiced, but from where we were sitting, she was the star player on her team. I am not sure how her team could ever get along without her. It is my humble opinion that greatness like this is inherited. You do not learn that kind of thing on your own, it is something that is passed down to you through your genes. I must have passed it on to her because I do not have it anymore. It was then that I saw it, which kicked in the old-fogeyitis syndrome. What I saw shocked me and it takes a lot to shock me. Up to this point, I was primarily focused on my granddaughter and her pristine playing on the field, so I did not see right away what I eventually saw. It happened when my granddaughter stepped up to bat for the first time. After that, the whole game went blank for me. Behind my lovely granddaughter was the catcher all dressed in the catchers outfit. That did not startle me. Behind the catcher was the umpire, or so he was pretending to be, and that is what startled me. It was a girls slow pitch softball team and every one of them was dressed in their softball players outfit. I believe in dressing for the occasion. The occasion was a softball game and those involved in the softball game were wearing attire consistent with the game at hand. Then I saw the umpire. And the umpire was wearing shorts! Shorts! It is not that I object to a man wearing shorts as long as he does not wear them out in public. The last time Friday, September 21, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, September 21, 2012 www.smcitizen.com The umpire wore shorts O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L.

Spotlight on Excellence Normally we feature a resident of Cherrywood who has had a remarkable past; a promising future or who has made a contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week we stray just a bit from that tradition and honor the daughter of long time residents, Louis and MaryAnn Hauguel, Monica Wheaton as she retires from the U.S. Air Force. Monica L. Wheaton graduated in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Saint Marys College, University of Notre Dame in Indiana. At the same time as her graduation, she received her commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force through the Reserve Officer Training Corps. Starting in the Medical/Surgical unit, her keen interest in obstetrics allowed her to move into becoming a labor delivery nurse. Monica was assigned to Cuba where she worked with a group of OB/GYN nurses and midwives assisting refugees. She received strong encouragement to attain her advanced medical training through the Air Force Institute of Technology. By 1997 Monica had completed her 2nd Masters Degree in Nursing and began her midwifery practice. In this field she has encouraged and mentored many students; has been a preceptor for numerous midwifery and nurse practitioner candidates and worked closely with physician assistants and family practice residents to militarily, Monica has attended Squadron Officer School at Maxwell AFB in Alabama and graduated from Air Command and Staff College. She has worked her way up the ranks from Nurse Intern to the Acting Chief Nurse, Scott AFB IL. Through hard work; dedication and professionalism, Monica attained the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in her 23 years of service. Among the many awards and decorations that Monica has received are, the Air Force Training Ribbon with oak leaf cluster; Humanitarian Service Medal; Global War on Terrorism Service Medal; Air Force Outstanding Unit Award with 6 oak leaf clusters; National Defense Service Medal; Joint Meritorious Unit Award and Air Force Commendation Medal with oak leaf cluster. Lt. Colonel Wheaton has served with distinction at bases from Alabama to Lakenheath England and from Lackland Air Force Base, Texas to Andrews AFB near Washington, D.C. On Aug. 17 of this year, MaryAnn and Louis went to Scott Air Force Base in Illinois to witness the retirement ceremony of Monica. She was honored with speeches by various dignitaries; by her friends and co-workers. At the conclusion of the ceremony, she was given the U.S. Air Force Meritorious Service medal to add to her long list of honors. She and her husband John plan to retire to Hondo, Texas, with their two daughters, MaryBeth who is 10 and AnnMarie who is 4. During her career, the children were raised by John who is a self described Mr. Mom. Of course Grandma MaryAnn and Grandpa Louis were often called upon during Monicas deployments to offer assistance in this area. From the way their faces light up when they describe their grandchildren, it was certainly a labor of love for both of them. Louis and MaryAnn moved to Cherrywood 15 years ago from the area of South Bend, Indiana. In addition to their daughter Monica, they have a son, Mark who still lives in Indiana. Mark is an electronics engineer and is married to Lisa. They have a son, Anthony who just started high school. MaryAnn and Louis are justly proud of Monica and of her many accomplishments. We also are proud of Monica Wheaton for her stellar service to not only the United States, but to the needy of this world. We are grateful to MaryAnn and Louis for raising such a person as Monica and for being a part of this community. Monica, we, your Cherrywood family; salute you; thank you, and wish you and your family the very best in your retirement. From Your ReporterYour suggestions, comments and ideas for stories for the Cherrywood section of the Citizen are always welcome. Please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. My sincere thanks to all who have prayed for my daughter and expressed their concern and hope for my family. Thankfully, Kim continues to make progress; slowly but surely. Again, Thank you.

Friday, September 21, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, September 21, 2012 www.smcitizen.com dent talked to the president of Israel, the video was released. Do you believe in coincidences? I dont. This caused the needless deaths of four outstanding Americans, and incited Libya, and Egypt to riots. Then another 15 countries joined in these riots and shortly thereafter, another 13 countries joined the demonstrations. When the president offered to send in Marines to support our embassies in these countries, Sudan refused them. Then on Sunday, Sept. 16, the Israeli president pleaded with the American people to intervene in our own political process, to elect a man who would take military action against Iran. Romney has already said he would do just that, as he is a friend of the Israeli president. Can you imagine another countrys president trying to influence our political process? Israel gets the largest amount of foreign aid from the United States, than any other country, and Egypt is a close second. These countries would not have survived without our support as well as Libya. Israel wouldnt even exist. There are too many coincidences, not to follow this scenario Ive put forth. Then you add that to the remarks Romney made against percent of the American people, who he said are either poor, have no backbone, are lazy, want free handouts, and are on Social Security and Medicare. In short, they should be taken care of by their own families and not the government. He still feels Social Security and Medicare are entitlement programs and wants them to cease. I wonder if he ever paid into Social Security? I doubt it. This guy just is not in touch with America or the American people. I guess silver spoons are like that. So lets send him home, wherever that might be, Michigan, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island or somewhere else. Then he can count his money in whichever countries in which it might be stashed. Just remember a very old piece of good advice, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, and we all know what Bushes are like, dont we? Bill Ford Oak Run LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 State of the Unions A recent New York Post story stated that the Metropolitan Transit Authority might scrap MetroCard (a mass-transit commuter card) discounts in 2013. The reason? To pay for escalating health-benefit and pension costs for transit workers active and retired. The city of New York says it cant pay the additional costs from its coffers. New Yorkers will also get fare increases in coming years to offset escalating union-costs. These moves will obviously hurt the tens of thousands who rely on the discounted, lower fares. This is another instance where many people must make sacrifices so that some union workers can enjoy inflated salaries and benefits. This is by no means a condemnation of unions. Unions are necessary to protect workers from employer abuses and too negotiate realistic salary/benefit packages. But, some unions hold employers hands to the fire to obtain inflated packages ... which we citizens ultimately pay for through higher taxes, fees, and costs. President Obama needs union support to win reelection. So hes playing nice with the unions. But if he continues, his more moderate supporters might become disenchanted with him. So, whats a president to do? Simple! He has two alternatives: either throw Americans under the bus ... again ... and back the unions, or, if hes truly concerned about the American people, do the right thing and condemn union excesses ... but thats not very likely to happen!

RELIGION T emperatures, both day and night, have been decreasing; days are getting shorter; and breezes have picked up. It is becoming very pleasant to be outside. All signify that autumn is near. Actually, it officially begins tomorrow. I have really been anticipating this. Last night I dreamed I was a dry withered stalk of corn. Suddenly, my corn stalk buddies and I were cut down and stacked in the middle of the harvested field. I was shocked. Mud flap During last months heavy rains two guys were camping in the national forest. Drinking beer all day while waiting for the rains to stop, they got disgusted and decided to leave. They ran through puddles to their car, started it, and stepped on the gas, laughing and still drinking beer. All of a sudden an old mans face appeared in the window and he tapped on it. The passenger screamed, Look at my window. Theres an old guy there! The old man kept knocking, so the driver stepped harder on the gas. With the speedometer showing 80 miles an hour, they calmed down until there was a knock on the window and the old man appeared again. Oh no! The passenger rolled down the window and screamed, What do you want? The old man replied, You want some help getting out of this mud? Falling leavesA woman bought a magnolia tree from a nursery, but after only a few weeks, its leaves shriveled and it appeared to be on its last legs. She took some leaf samples back to the nursery and demanded an explanation. Oh, I know exactly whats wrong with your magnolia tree, maam, said the manager. Good, she replied. What is it? He said, autumn. ShortfallsThis is an exciting autumn. Our athletes finished breaking records for Olympic medals, and now our presidential candidates are starting to break records for the most campaign promises. I changed my iPods name to Titanic. Now its syncing. People love autumn in New York City the yellows, the browns, and the rust, and thats just the drinking water. Ah yes, summers out and autumns in, from swimming pools to football pools. When crazy people go through the forest they take the psycho path. Cable TV has a 24-7 weather channel. We had something like that where I grew up. We called it a window. The earthquake in Washington was obviously the governments fault. TV cant be wrongRecently a newscaster ended his evening news program by saying, More on candidates at 10 p.m. Thats the first time they actually called politicians morons on national television. Running AwayA man scolded his son for bitterly complaining about school. The child rebelled and got some of his clothes, his teddy bear and his piggy bank and proudly announced, Im running away from home! The father asked, What if you get hungry? Then Ill come home and eat, declared the child. And what if you run out of money? I will come home and get some. What if your clothes get dirty? Then Ill come home and let mommy wash them, was the reply. The man shook his head and exclaimed, This kid is not running away from home; hes going off to college. Well preservedMay and her mother lived in California where most of the farmers grew grapes for wine while May used the grapes for her preserves. One day, deciding to try something new, they bought a barrel of kumquats and her mother began the preparation for boiling and sugaring and the rest. Finally, when her mother had everything all set, she called to her daughter to tell her that her part of the work could begin. She called out, Kumquat, May, were ready.Say what?A young lady was a theater major applying for fall semester classes. At the end of the busy day she went back to her dorm in a huff of anger. Whats wrong, Shelly? asked her roommate. Well, all the acting classes are filled. I couldnt even get into Mime class. Why not? How should I know? You cant get a word out of those people! Thats all folks! You cant get any more words out of me today; weve come to the end of the Alley.

Wed., Sept. 26 11:00 a.m. God gave us Christ to demonstrate how to live according to his will. God doesnt demand that we live that way. He always gives us choice. But what God does ask is that each and every day, as we make decisions about our own life, we realize that our decisions also affect others. In our earthly family, as in any family, our decisions affect how we are perceived by others, how we get along with others, and ultimately, how we share our vision of God our Creator with others. We all know that reasonable dialogue in todays world can be difficult. Havent you noticed how political discussions on television often end in shouting matches with nothing resolved? Isnt this our fear if we confront our friends and neighbors with our concerns for our country? So what do we do? Have you heard the term prayer warrior? Wikipedia says Prayer Warrior is a term used by many evangelical and other Protestant Christians to refer to anyone who is committed to praying for others. Other denominations have prayer warriors, too. I know that our Catholic church does. What Im asking of you is that you become a Prayer Warrior for our country. Pray for the United States, our country in which so many have turned away from God in their homes, God in our schools, God in our courts of law (laws which were originally founded on Gods Ten Commandments) and even In God We Trust as our motto. If you truly trust in God, become a prayer warrior for the USA and our world. Inundate Heaven with prayers for the continued existence of this country, a country founded on Godly principles and the hope of many who want only to live in peace and love. Remember, prayer doesnt change God, prayer changes us and through us, our neighbors, our country and our world. Shirley Strauss Ocala Destabilized MideastStrong leadership in the Mideast kept this part of the world under control and balanced to the point that their governments were in control of events. American leadership does not seem to understand that these Arab states are not democracies and their people have never been schooled in respecting election results. It is my opinion and I believe that the present problems started when we invaded Iraq and removed their countries strong leader. When we removed Saddam we removed one of the stabilizing leaders who was a factor in this part of the world. This hated leader of Iraq was not a nice guy and he held no love for his people. He was a leader who controlled his people and had a strong influence in this part of the world. No other country would test his resolve for fear of attack from this mad man who should have been in an institution rather than a leader of a country. We started a chain of events that have destabilized countries to the point where its citizens have taken over but still dont know how to control their own religious factions. Iran is now one of the leaders in this part of the world with a military that is controlled by people who dont have the best interest of their country at heart. America had a strong part in this change but we dont see it and if we did we would not admit our mistake. Egypt has just finished a civil war that has removed their leader who was really a military dictator that ruled by brute force. Our government thought it would be a good thing to have another democracy in this part of the world. Syria is presently being terrorized by its military under the orders of its leader who may or may not survive this revolution. Again our presence in this part of the world has influenced the Syrian peoples actions. The world is the big loser by our involvement in destabilizing the Mideast. Jerry Segovis Ocala Un-American and manipulative Now theres three descriptions of people who dont seem to have our countrys best interests at heart. Ill identify the three, then go deeper into each. First, are the people who created the video that criticized Muhammad, and the Islamic community. This is next to treason. Thank God, President Obama had the good sense apologized for it and assured the Islamic people, it was not the American way. Then, the part, where Mitt Romney criticized the president for the apology. Romney using a political speech to criticize the president, showing that Romney was not interested in diplomacy, but in his own political well being in the political process. This from a man who received four draft deferments, so he could pass out leaflets in France and other areas. he has no sense of foreign policy. Just look at the Olympics this year. Finally, President Obama called President Netanyahu, of Israel, on the Sept. 9, to tell him we were following a peaceful process regarding Iran, and their nuclear program, before considering and military action. Now, the president of Israel wants a military solution, even though it could be a disaster and possibly start WWIII. This according to the former Mussad chief on 60 Minutes on Sunday, Sept. 16. He in fact said if Irsael attacked Iran, Tel Aviv would cease to exist the next day. The strange part is, this anti-Islamic video was made days or even weeks before it was released in the Islamic language. But, just hours after the presiLETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE10 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.com An informational forum, travel, entertainment, and two unique graduations constitute this weeks OTOW Happenings.

Lions Club On Saturday, Aug. 18, the SE Canine Companion Independence (CCI) Regional Training Center in Orlando held its quarterly graduation and puppy matriculation ceremony: Lions Peter Dodd, PDG John Redden, Ken Greve, Joan Greve, and Virginia Redden. The CCI graduation ceremony presents a person who has been matched with a dog who has finished his/her two weeks of intensive advance training. This training teaches these teams (person/canine) the commands and how to care for the CCI dog. The physically disabled (but not blind) and the companion canine graduate together and then go to their respective homes to begin their live together. There is also a puppy matriculation ceremony is which the puppy raisers have finished their work socializing the pups and teaching them basic obedience. The pups are now about 18-22 months old, and they are ready for their advance training, or college, as those involved like calling it. For example, Kabell is a 20-month old canine that has been turned over to the SE CCI regional training center for advanced training.

Amendments, travel, and a graduation OTOW HAPPENINGS Young boy succeeds in clearing mans nameLEFT FOR DEAD By Pete Nelson Several years ago in Pensacola, Florida, a father and his 11-year-old son were watching their favorite movie, Jaws. In one scene the actors discuss the sinking of the USS Indianapolis in which 800 were thrown into the shark-infested waters of the Pacific in the last months of WWII. The boy, Hunter Scott, is intrigued and decides to make the subject his project for the schools history fair. That decision eventually led to the exoneration of the disgraced ships Captain Charles McVay, who was court-marshaled for hazarding his ship and crew and who, after 23 years of hate mail from families of the men who perished, took his own life at his home in Litchfield, Connecticut. Hunter wrote hundreds of letters to the survivors asking for information about the sinking and was flooded with responses. Accompanied by his father he visited many of the men and recorded their personal narratives. Slowly the secrets of the tragedy began to unravel and point not only to the Navy but also to setting up McVay as the scapegoat. Among the blame placed on the Navy was McVays request for an escort and its refusal, assurances that his planned route to Guam was safe from enemy submarines when in fact just days before the sinking Japanese subs had been sighted in the area. Repairs to the USS Indianapolis had been interrupted because the ship was to carry the atom bomb to Tinian Island to be loaded on to the Enola Gay. Without sufficient repairs to the venting systems, on the night the torpedoes struck, the hatches were all open to allow air to circulate and this hastened the sinking. Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington The stories told were harrowing. Sharks picked off the men one by one; men hallucinated, and believing that deep water was fresh, drank it and died. There was even some evidence of cannibalism although the men avoided the subject. One thing was clear. They admired their captain. One survivor said of the court martial, That was the worst thing the navy could have done. It dishonored the captain and the crew. Ill never sail again, but if I did, I would want Capt. McVay as my captain because he was one of the finest men Ive ever met. Publicity about Hunters fair project brought him many powerful friends and supporters including Congressman Joe Scarborough and Senator John Warner. A young boy, then, succeeded in clearing a good mans name where many previous efforts had failed. But to date the Navy has not apologized for its role in the tragedy.

Friday, September 21, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com B ehind our hardened veneers, most writers are romantics. We like happy endings, particularly in true-life stories. A recent Associated Press article out of Chicago detailed the birth of Elle Cynthia Jordan to her healthy and attractive 53year-old grandmother, Cindy Reutzel. Over the past 30 years test-tube babies have been born to menopausal women as old as their sixties. What was different about the conception and birth of Elle Cynthia Jordan was the ordeal of her biological mother, Emily Jordan. Two years before Elle was conceived in vitro, her mother Emily had been diagnosed with cervical cancer and had to undergo a radical hysterectomy. Before the surgery was performed, it was discovered that Emily was pregnant. Her unborn child was removed with her cancerous uterus. Although Emily would never be able to carry a baby, doctors www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, September 21, 2012 A bout a dozen or so years ago, I was sitting in my newspaper office in New Smyrna Beach when a man came in to see me. He was dressed in rough-looking clothes, and had a long beard that looked as if he hadnt trimmed it in months. I immediately stereotyped him as, well, you can guess, especially since I found out he was a veteran, and weve all heard stories about down and out vets. His name was Tom Ryan, and it turned out he was one of the nicest people I met over there, and one who was most dedicated to what he was trying to accomplish. Tom was on a mission to have a bridge on U.S. Highway 1 between New Smyrna Beach and Port Orange named in honor of POWs and MIAs, thats prisoners of war and those missing in action. It was his passion to keep these peoples plights in front of the public, and, some years after I left, he succeeded. It was Tom who introduced me to POW-MIA Remembrance Day, and the POW-MIA flag. Up to that point, I am ashamed to say I didnt know either existed. The Remembrance Day is observed on the third Friday in September, which is today, Sept. 21. As I write this I havent been notified of any special ceremonies. Many of us remember that big day during the Vietnam War when POWs were released. The joyous reunions with their families were shown nationwide as the country celebrated their return. Some people say there are still POWs over there. Of course, the Rambo movies helped perpetuate this notion. Whether this is true is up for debate, but what is not contested is the list of MIAs, not only from Vietnam but from all other conflicts dating back to World War II. For the families of the POWs who returned home, there were some joyous celebrations as their loved ones came home. But for the families of the MIAs, there were no such events. They are still left with the uncertainty of what happened to their kin who went off to war and never came back. I applaud those who are constantly trying to find out what happened to the MIAs, those who want accountability from the foreign countries in which we fought. With the advances in DNA identification, it is now much easier to take some bones and identify them properly. While the efforts continue, we should all realize what these families and friends are going through, and take a special moment Friday to remember those who were lost, then found, and those who were lost, and havent been located. And if youre ever driving down U.S. 1 in Southeast Volusia County, when you cross that bridge over Spruce Creek make sure you mentally thank Tom Ryan for keep the plight of these folks in out minds.

However, this year may be different. Because there are 11 Florida Constitution amendments on the ballot, and some of them are wordy, the ballot is two pages, 14 inches long, both sides. If everyone waits to vote on Election Day, that could be a disaster. We have visions of people waiting a very long time while those ahead of them try to read through the ballot and figure out which way they are going to vote. And if they let everyone who is on line at 7 p.m. vote, the ballot counting could be delayed by quite a bit. With a bunch of other key races on the ballot, such as U.S. president, U.S. senator, various state races and some Congressional races, it could make for a very long day for poll workers. Of course, we havent even mentioned the local races, especially for County Commission, supervisor of elections, sheriff and school superintendent. So this time, were going to trust election officials and ask you to go ahead and vote ahead of time, either at an early voting site or by absentee ballot. That way you can take your time, especially with the absentee ballots, which you can peruse at your leisure at home, just making sure you get them back on time. Incidentally, because the ballot is so big, its going to cost you 65 cents to mail it back, instead of the normal postage of 45 cents. But as one speaker pointed out at a recent forum, you cant get in your car, start the engine and drive to a polling place for only 65 cents worth of gas. You can also drop the absentee ballots off at the election office, if youre so inclined. So to save yourself a bit of aggravation on Election Day, consider voting early. The count will be long enough without those who vote early, so dont add to the problem. Then you can get on the Internet and watch the returns ... if you can stay up that late. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Voting early may be the answer Take time to remember POWs, MIAs Jim Flynn Columnist A refreshing family power of example Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR READER OPINIONS INVITED who removed her uterus salvaged her ovaries. Two years later Emily and her husband Mike were ready to try for an invitro fertilization using Emilys ovaries and Mikes sperm. They needed a healthy body in which their test-tube baby could grow until birth. Emilys mother, Cindy Reutzel, volunteered. The details of the pregnancy and delivery are better understood and enjoyed by women. Our interest focused on the wrenching decision which Emily and Mike Jordan had to make about removal of her malignant uterus and their unborn child. Was there a place for government in the Jordan familys deliberations and decisions? We think not. The Jordans wisely limited their deliberations and decisions to themselves, their family, and their physicians. In the days leading up to the delivery of Elle Cynthia Jordan, the national political parties were updating their opinions about abortion. Notwithstanding the baseless but binding decision in Roe v. Wade, The Republican platform asserts that every conceived child has a right to life, no matter what the circumstances. On the other hand, Democrats defend Roe v. Wade, because abortion is a personal decision which they insist has no place for politicians or government, They say their endorsement is without conditions or qualifications, but they make an exception that taxpayers should guarantee ability to pay an hypocrisy not mentioned in Roe v. Wade. Politicians and righteous dogooders cannot resist defining and redefining other peoples natural rights and liberties. They are intrusive and arrogant, as well as hypocritical. Meddling in peoples lives seems to require significant time and attention which our politicians could better devote to the neglected work for which they were elected. The difficult and painful decisions made by the Jordan family were right for them, and required no assistance from government or politicians. Any other independent decision they might have made would have been just as right. Congratulations to the Jordan family and grandma Cindy Reutzel for doing the right thing twice. Become a prayer warriorOur world is at war Holy War. Ours is a battle of wills, a battle of ideals, a battle for souls. We battle to name our worlds Creator and to enforce our own vision of what that Creator God intends for all of us. In doing so, we risk losing sight of Gods plan of peace for all of his people. And in taking all into our own hands, we also risk losing sight of the fact that we are not God. We are not Creator and we are not enforcer. We are all Gods children, beloved of our Father. But in adulthood, many are acting like quarreling, selfish children, ever fighting to establish dominance and domain over others, even at the risk of losing the only possession they can carry with them from this earth, their soul. Where do you stand in this battle? Do you remember the hymn Onward Christian Soldiers? Is your faith worth fighting for? Have you forgotten because you have been indoctrinated into political correctness that as a citizen of the United States you have been given the right to speak out when your values are threatened? Are you already afraid to speak your mind, even to your friends, when abortion, same-sex marriage, restraint of religious freedom, Dont ask, dont tell, and other non-Christian values are being forced upon our society by the politically correct? We are in a Holy War. The future of our country is at risk. Our freedoms are at risk most importantly, our freedoms of speech and our freedom of religion. Many are willing to ignore the downward path along which we are being led. Others find it much easier to sit by and wring their hands, forwarding emails to those who agree with their position and hoping that those who either disagree with them, or just dont care, wont vote. But can we take that risk? God our Creator has gave us a plan and his hope for our earthly existence. In Galatians 5: 22-23, God promises us that when his Holy Spirit controls our lives we will experience love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. What a wonderful way to live! Imagine living in a world of love, joy, and peace. Imagine living among people who are patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and who practice self-control. Is such a world possible? Can we ever hope for such a blessed existence in this life? Over two thousand years ago PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE9 ther complicated by a debilitating illness. He told us how he was a prisoner of his own home. All the coaching and nagging (his words) by his wife couldnt budge him. Finally, his wife, Marilyn Kaye, solicited help from Carol Borden and they finally wore him down to the point where he agreed to visit the Guardian Angel facility. He said it was love at first sight when he met one of the dogs in training. He was completely oblivious to the conversation taking place between his wife and Carol. Well, the result was Michael received his very own service dog, Honey; and a honey she is. Michael then found that his PTSD and physical limitations no longer kept him a prisoner in his own home. Even though he is confined to a wheelchair, he looks forward to getting out with his two best friends by his side. He also shared about how it was unsafe for his wife to wake him up when he was experiencing one of his nightmares, but that Honey is able to sense his distress and is able to gently arouse him. Service dogs provide a variety of duties, including being alert for other medical conditions. They have been trained to detect when their masters are about to experience an episode even before the signs are evident; including diabetic shock or epileptic seizures to name a few. We were all enlightened, if not surprised as to the many benefits a service dog provides to those with varying conditions. The biggest challenge today is to be able to meet the increased demand. It takes a lot of money and a lot of time to train a dog for a specific duty. Not all dogs make it through the rigid training program, so sometimes they have to start over again with another dog. Guardian Angels is a charitable organization that receives minimal government assistance and relies on the generosity of the caring public. There are many ways to DOGS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 assist in this valuable program through volunteering, monetary donations, and even dog food.

BY DELPHINE BLACHOWICZ HERBERT Three hundred Democrats were fired up and ready to go when they packed the banquet hall of the Hilton recently to hear Grace Nelson lead a salute to women who have been in the forefront of effective change both here and abroad. The proud to be a Democrat dinner goers were welcomed by hostess Dr. Joyce Blake, party state committeewoman and coordinated campaign chair, and Reginald Landers, Jr., recently elected chairman of the Marion County Democratic Executive Committee, both of whom pointed out that the party is moving on up and ready to turn Marion county blue with the relocation of its headquarters to 601 S.W. First Ave. in downtown Ocala. Former Congresswoman Karen Thurman introduced the wife of Florida Senator Bill Nelson as her personal first lady of Florida and an effective ambassador for women and children across the state and around the world. Women know that power is not necessarily in a position, Mrs. Nelson said, citing the influence of transformative politicians spouses such as Eleanor Roosevelt and her friendship with Mary Bethune founder of Daytonas Bethune-Cookman College, and Michelle Obama who with Jill Biden fights for the rights of our military and against the obesity which afflicts the health of our youth and our nation. Nelson spoke movingly of her trips to Rwanda with her husband where almost a million people died in three months during the genocidal tribal warfares of 1994. Despite unspeakable atrocities, the women of Rwanda decided to forgive their oppressors with the result that women now occupy 59 percent of parliament and the country claims the fastest growing GNP in all of Africa. Hate radio started poisoning the minds of the Rwandans, Nelson said, drawing a parallel with those who kill elsewhere with words rather than machetes. This is not the Democratic way nor is it the Republican way voicing her concern that our children are growing up thinking that refusal to compromise or even discuss differing points of view is the norm. Nelson feels that the gaping division between our citizens is a problem even more serious than the economy, the wars or drug addiction. We must see our Earth as my husband did while in space, with no racial, political and religious divisions, just the beautiful home in Norman Rockwells Family of Man portrait where people of all religious backgrounds subscribe to varying versions of the golden rule Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Democratic candidates spoke briefly following Mrs. Nelsons address. They included Clovis Watson, J R. Gaillot, Frank Bruno, Diana Greene, Jessica Hadley and Judge Cochran. The evening concluded with a salute to eight local women who have worked for the common good in our community. They are: Mary Sue Rich, Karen Thurmond, Edwina Harris, Sue Lyons, Juanita Cunningham, Marjorie Renfroe, Loretta Jenkins and Onieda Darling. Events coordinator Sally Eller Smith was workaholic-in-chief who made the evening a resounding success with serious assists from Michele Kudrna, Stephanie Miller, Eunice Dawkins, Nora Traviesio, Sheila Feldman and Jan Lentz.

Friday, September 21, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, September 21, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good time for the usually outspoken Lamb to be a bit more discreet. You still can get your point across, but do it in a way less likely to turn off a potential supporter. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Good news: All that hard work you put in is beginning to pay off. But you need to watch that tendency to insist on doing things your way or no way. Be a bit more flexible. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might want to delay making a decision on the future of a long-standing relationship until you check out some heretofore hidden details that are just now beginning to emerge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your reluctance to compromise on an important issue could backfire without more facts to support your position. Weigh your options carefully before making your next move. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good time for ambitious Leos or Leonas to shift from planning their next move to actually doing it. Your communication skills help persuade others to join you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Relationships personal or professional present new challenges. Be careful not to let a sudden surge of stubbornness influence how you choose to deal with them. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might need more facts before you can decide on a possible career change. But you should have no problem making a decision about an important personal matter. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Youre respected by most people for your direct, no-nonsense approach to the issues. But be careful you dont replace honest skepticism with stinging sarcasm. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A newly emerging situation could require a good deal of attention and some difficult decision-making. However, close friends will help you see it through. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Family matters need 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) Of course you deserve to indulge yourself in something special. But for now, tuck that bit of mad money away. Youll need it to help with a looming cash crunch. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A temporary setback in your financial situation is eased by changing some of your plans. Youll be able to ride it out quite well until the tide turns back in your favor. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for understanding peoples needs. You have a low tolerance for those who act without concern for others. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

When I had control of my wardrobe, I put away those shorts and began wearing pants like a man. I think if the good Lord wanted us to wear shorts, in public that is, He would have made our legs more visually appealing. A mans legs are not appealing, unless they have been in the sun too long and the skin begins to peel. A man, especially an old man, has knobby knees, hairy legs and varicose veins none of which should be part of public domain. This is not something I want to see when I am out in public. I can dutifully attest to the fact that my legs have not seen direct sunlight in over 50 years. I attribute this to the fact that I wear pants every day of my life. Not short pants, but pants that go all the way down to my ankles. Short pants look like you cannot afford to buy the whole thing. For some reason I could not watch the game with the same enthusiasm. When I got home that night I settled down a little bit and thought of a verse of Scripture, something Jesus said. Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment (John 7:24 KJV). In spite of my severe old-fogeyitis condition, I must remember not to judge people according to their appearance. It is not what a man looks like but rather, what he does that makes him the man that he is. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

With this pattern on holes # 5, 10 and 15 the team needed to use 3 net scores. One or two net scores were used on the other holes. The winning teams were: first place, JT Lemasters, Noreen Salo, Janet Tully and Ilene Simnowitz; for second place three teams all had the exact same score. Sharing the moneys for second place were Lynn Houghton, Sylvia Zappia, Maureen Edwards, Carole Dygert, Bea Terry, Sheila Adams, Inge Szabo, Elsa Berbig, Judy Klein, Arlene Klann and Barb Davis. I hope the 12 second place team winners do not spend all their winnings in one place! The weather is finally a little more fall-like which makes golf so much more pleasant. ORWGAThe weather is starting to cool down but not the scores of our league players! The winners of the low net tournament for Sept. 6 are listed in first, second and third place according to their flight. Flight A: Sue Marentette, Marge Rymarcsuk, Connie Bingham.

Closest to the pin: Annette Carini. Chip ins: Norma Erickson, Nancy Reichenbacher, Ginny Simons. Royal Oaks Mens GolfSept. 14 saw 38 golfers play the usual three man best net. The course is in good shape, but a few spots are still wet from all the rain we have experienced in the past few weeks. The winners with a score of 192 were Charlie Elder, Al Prachel, Tom Ducz, and Chuck Engel. Second with a 195 were Hal Loomis, John Wargo, Bill Start, and Steve Szabo. In third with a 197 were Ron Tennant, Bill Staiger, Jim Kennedy, and BJ Jones. Closest to the pin on the par threes were Dick Blackburn, Vince Connolly, Paul Valois, and Dick Rizzo. The day was the 80th birthday of one of our most active members, Duke Slayton. Happy Birthday Duke, and many more to come! One final note. Dont forget to sign up for the Ryder Cup tournament coming up in the first week of October. This is the first tournament of the fall/winter season, and a good way to begin the schedule of events. And, as usual, good food will be served at the conclusion of the event.

There will be various exhibitors in booths throughout the mall. Amendments to be explainedFormer county commissioner Judy Johnson will discuss the 11 amendments to the Florida Constitution on the ballot in November on Sunday, Sept. 23, at 2 p.m. in Room C at the main library on Silver Springs Boulevard. The ballot measures refer to such diverse subjects as health care, property taxes, state budgets, taxes in general, judicial reform, abortion, religion, and government administration. Ms. Johnson has in previous such talks translated the legal language of the amendments into a form that enables audience members to understand them better and to make an informed decision when voting. The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Ocala Library and admission is free. For information about the Friends, log on to friendsoftheocalalibrary.org. Italian Festival at OTOW PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELThis quartet sang and played Italian music all during the four-hour festival. Circle Square Commons was very crowded recently for the Italian Festival. It seemed like countless padded folding chairs were being brought out for people. The audience was able to choose from several food vendors and Big Scoops Ice Cream, depending on what they were hungry for. Big Scoops had lots of different flavors of ice cream to choose from as well as drinks. The other vendors had an assortment of Italian food to satisfy almost any taste. The juggler, stilt walker and other entertainers were happy that the large crowd had good weather to watch their acts. A quartet played and sang a lot of Italian music. The juggler came right up close to these youngsters but could not persuade them to try juggling. BY JIM CLARK Editor One of the write-in candidates in the Nov. 6 County Commission election appeared at a candidate forum Tuesday, and spoke to the audience and answered questions. Patricia Reed is an opponent of incumbent Stan McClain in the race for County Commission District 3. There is another write-in candidate listed, Robert Brown. McClain won the Republican primary in August over Jeff Gold, and would have been elected had there not been the write-in candidates. There are no Democrats in the race. Although Reed wont be listed on the ballot, she was given the same treatment as other candidates. She was the only one in her race to appear. Among Reeds comments: Shes against the recent decisions to remove impact fees. The impact fees never should have been suspended. She said that shes good at listening to others. She spoke of a recent hearing where the current commissioners werent listening to a lady, who was overrun by the Commission. She said she believes the social service programs are the responsibility of government. She said she doesnt ever see curbside recycling becoming mandatory, particularly with the current Commission. Candidates in various other county races appeared, using the same format. Because of deadlines, their comments will be covered next week. The forum was held at the main library. Write-in candidate appears at forum Reed BY JIM CLARK Editor The Marion County Sheriffs Office is investigating a fraud case that resulted in a man losing several hundred dollars to a scam artist. According to the reports, the man received several phone calls at his place of business and on his cell phone from a person who identified himself as Steve. The suspect told the victim they had met approximately 10 years ago in Leesburg. The victim said the suspect provided enough information to make the victim think they were acquainted. Steve said he worked as a delivery driver for Sears at the Paddock Mall and could offer an employee special, flat screen televisions for $200 each, but the victim had to buy a minimum of five. At the time, the victim said he was not interested, but after repeated phone calls, he agreed, with two other victims, to buy $900 worth of TVs. The victim was told to go to the package pickup area of Sears at the mall. When he arrived there, the suspect called him and said Scam artist gets $900 for non-existent televisions PLEASESEESCAM PAGE3 The mens ministry at Ocala West United Methodist church has kicked off the fall season with a well attended all you can eat breakfast held on Saturday, Sept. 8, which was followed by their fellowship meeting on Tuesday evening, Sept. 11, where they were entertained with a presentation about the Lunar moon landing. The Oct. 9 program will feature a presentation by the Sheriff Department SWAT team and, the all you can eat breakfast will be on Oct. 13 from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Recently they were entertained with a presentation by Carol Borden of Guardian Angels. Guardian Angels is an organization created for the charitable purpose of raising, training, and then donating medical service/assistance dogs to mentally and/or physically impaired individuals. Carol shared with us that there are over 52 million Americans who would benefit from/by having a service dog. Unfortunately, the need far exceeds the supply and is growing annually. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have added to the demand as our servicemen and women are returning with severe physical injuries and many are suffering from PTSD (post traumatic stress syndrome). Their conditions are making it difficult for them to assimilate back into a normal routine of the life they once knew. One such veteran, Michael Gaither, shared with us the struggles he experienced as a result of PTSD, which is furMichael Gaither and his dog Honey.

After a while the victim grew suspicious, went into the store and spoke to the manager, who said they had no one named Steve working at the store. The Sheriffs Office was called and a complaint was filed. As of press time, no arrest has been made.

Completewith Benjamin Moore Paint 1,100 sf 5 year Warranty Bestway Painting (352) 438-3381 I wore shorts I was three years old and it was only because my mother made me wear them. When I had control of my wardrobe, I put away those shorts and began wearing pants like a man. I think if the good Lord wanted us to wear shorts, in public that is, He would have made our legs more visually appealing. A mans legs are not appealing, unless they have been in the sun too long and the skin begins to peel. A man, especially an old man, has knobby knees, hairy legs and varicose veins none of which should be part of public domain. This is not something I want to see when I am out in public. I can dutifully attest to the fact that my legs have not seen direct sunlight in over 50 years. I attribute this to the fact that I wear pants every day of my life. Not short pants, but pants that go all the way down to my ankles. Short pants look like you cannot afford to buy the whole thing. For some reason I could not watch the game with the same enthusiasm. When I got home that night I settled down a little bit and thought of a verse of Scripture, something Jesus said. Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment (John 7:24 KJV). In spite of my severe old-fogeyitis condition, I must remember not to judge people according to their appearance. It is not what a man looks like but rather, what he does that makes him the man that he is.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

With this pattern on holes # 5, 10 and 15 the team needed to use 3 net scores. One or two net scores were used on the other holes. The winning teams were: first place, JT Lemasters, Noreen Salo, Janet Tully and Ilene Simnowitz; for second place three teams all had the exact same score. Sharing the moneys for second place were Lynn Houghton, Sylvia Zappia, Maureen Edwards, Carole Dygert, Bea Terry, Sheila Adams, Inge Szabo, Elsa Berbig, Judy Klein, Arlene Klann and Barb Davis. I hope the 12 second place team winners do not spend all their winnings in one place!

Friday, September 21, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, September 21, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good time for the usually outspoken Lamb to be a bit more discreet. You still can get your point across, but do it in a way less likely to turn off a potential supporter. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Good news: All that hard work you put in is beginning to pay off. But you need to watch that tendency to insist on doing things your way or no way. Be a bit more flexible. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might want to delay making a decision on the future of a long-standing relationship until you check out some heretofore hidden details that are just now beginning to emerge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your reluctance to compromise on an important issue could backfire without more facts to support your position. Weigh your options carefully before making your next move. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good time for ambitious Leos or Leonas to shift from planning their next move to actually doing it. Your communication skills help persuade others to join you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Relationships personal or professional present new challenges. Be careful not to let a sudden surge of stubbornness influence how you choose to deal with them. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might need more facts before you can decide on a possible career change. But you should have no problem making a decision about an important personal matter. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Youre respected by most people for your direct, no-nonsense approach to the issues. But be careful you dont replace honest skepticism with stinging sarcasm. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A newly emerging situation could require a good deal of attention and some difficult decision-making. However, close friends will help you see it through. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Family matters need 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) Of course you deserve to indulge yourself in something special. But for now, tuck that bit of mad money away. Youll need it to help with a looming cash crunch. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A temporary setback in your financial situation is eased by changing some of your plans. Youll be able to ride it out quite well until the tide turns back in your favor. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for understanding peoples needs. You have a low tolerance for those who act without concern for others. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

BY DELPHINE BLACHOWICZ HERBERT Three hundred Democrats were fired up and ready to go when they packed the banquet hall of the Hilton recently to hear Grace Nelson lead a salute to women who have been in the forefront of effective change both here and abroad. The proud to be a Democrat dinner goers were welcomed by hostess Dr. Joyce Blake, party state committeewoman and coordinated campaign chair, and Reginald Landers, Jr., recently elected chairman of the Marion County Democratic Executive Committee, both of whom pointed out that the party is moving on up and ready to turn Marion county blue with the relocation of its headquarters to 601 S.W. First Ave. in downtown Ocala. Former Congresswoman Karen Thurman introduced the wife of Florida Senator Bill Nelson as her personal first lady of Florida and an effective ambassador for women and children across the state and around the world. Women know that power is not necessarily in a position, Mrs. Nelson said, citing the influence of transformative politicians spouses such as Eleanor Roosevelt and her friendship with Mary Bethune founder of Daytonas Bethune-Cookman College, and Michelle Obama who with Jill Biden fights for the rights of our military and against the obesity which afflicts the health of our youth and our nation. Nelson spoke movingly of her trips to Rwanda with her husband where almost a million people died in three months during the genocidal tribal warfares of 1994. Despite unspeakable atrocities, the women of Rwanda decided to forgive their oppressors with the result that women now occupy 59 percent of parliament and the country claims the fastest growing GNP in all of Africa. Hate radio started poisoning the minds of the Rwandans, Nelson said, drawing a parallel with those who kill elsewhere with words rather than machetes. This is not the Democratic way nor is it the Republican way voicing her concern that our children are growing up thinking that refusal to compromise or even discuss differing points of view is the norm. Nelson feels that the gaping division between our citizens is a problem even more serious than the economy, the wars or drug addiction. We must see our Earth as my husband did while in space, with no racial, political and religious divisions, just the beautiful home in Norman Rockwells Family of Man portrait where people of all religious backgrounds subscribe to varying versions of the golden rule Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Democratic candidates spoke briefly following Mrs. Nelsons address. They included Clovis Watson, J R. Gaillot, Frank Bruno, Diana Greene, Jessica Hadley and Judge Cochran. The evening concluded with a salute to eight local women who have worked for the common good in our community. They are: Mary Sue Rich, Karen Thurmond, Edwina Harris, Sue Lyons, Juanita Cunningham, Marjorie Renfroe, Loretta Jenkins and Onieda Darling. Events coordinator Sally Eller Smith was workaholic-in-chief who made the evening a resounding success with serious assists from Michele Kudrna, Stephanie Miller, Eunice Dawkins, Nora Traviesio, Sheila Feldman and Jan Lentz.

Friday, September 21, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Behind our hardened veneers, most writers are romantics. We like happy endings, particularly in true-life stories. A recent Associated Press article out of Chicago detailed the birth of Elle Cynthia Jordan to her healthy and attractive 53year-old grandmother, Cindy Reutzel. Over the past 30 years test-tube babies have been born to menopausal women as old as their sixties. What was different about the conception and birth of Elle Cynthia Jordan was the ordeal of her biological mother, Emily Jordan. Two years before Elle was conceived in vitro, her mother Emily had been diagnosed with cervical cancer and had to undergo a radical hysterectomy. Before the surgery was performed, it was discovered that Emily was pregnant. Her unborn child was removed with her cancerous uterus. Although Emily would never be able to carry a baby, doctors www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 21, 2012 About a dozen or so years ago, I was sitting in my newspaper office in New Smyrna Beach when a man came in to see me. He was dressed in rough-looking clothes, and had a long beard that looked as if he hadnt trimmed it in months. I immediately stereotyped him as, well, you can guess, especially since I found out he was a veteran, and weve all heard stories about down and out vets. His name was Tom Ryan, and it turned out he was one of the nicest people I met over there, and one who was most dedicated to what he was trying to accomplish. Tom was on a mission to have a bridge on U.S. Highway 1 between New Smyrna Beach and Port Orange named in honor of POWs and MIAs, thats prisoners of war and those missing in action. It was his passion to keep these peoples plights in front of the public, and, some years after I left, he succeeded. It was Tom who introduced me to POW-MIA Remembrance Day, and the POW-MIA flag. Up to that point, I am ashamed to say I didnt know either existed. The Remembrance Day is observed on the third Friday in September, which is today, Sept. 21. As I write this I havent been notified of any special ceremonies. Many of us remember that big day during the Vietnam War when POWs were released. The joyous reunions with their families were shown nationwide as the country celebrated their return. Some people say there are still POWs over there. Of course, the Rambo movies helped perpetuate this notion. Whether this is true is up for debate, but what is not contested is the list of MIAs, not only from Vietnam but from all other conflicts dating back to World War II. For the families of the POWs who returned home, there were some joyous celebrations as their loved ones came home. But for the families of the MIAs, there were no such events. They are still left with the uncertainty of what happened to their kin who went off to war and never came back. I applaud those who are constantly trying to find out what happened to the MIAs, those who want accountability from the foreign countries in which we fought. With the advances in DNA identification, it is now much easier to take some bones and identify them properly. While the efforts continue, we should all realize what these families and friends are going through, and take a special moment Friday to remember those who were lost, then found, and those who were lost, and havent been located. And if youre ever driving down U.S. 1 in Southeast Volusia County, when you cross that bridge over Spruce Creek make sure you mentally thank Tom Ryan for keep the plight of these folks in out minds.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

However, this year may be different. Because there are 11 Florida Constitution amendments on the ballot, and some of them are wordy, the ballot is two pages, 14 inches long, both sides. If everyone waits to vote on Election Day, that could be a disaster. We have visions of people waiting a very long time while those ahead of them try to read through the ballot and figure out which way they are going to vote. And if they let everyone who is on line at 7 p.m. vote, the ballot counting could be delayed by quite a bit. With a bunch of other key races on the ballot, such as U.S. president, U.S. senator, various state races and some Congressional races, it could make for a very long day for poll workers. Of course, we havent even mentioned the local races, especially for County Commission, supervisor of elections, sheriff and school superintendent. So this time, were going to trust election officials and ask you to go ahead and vote ahead of time, either at an early voting site or by absentee ballot. That way you can take your time, especially with the absentee ballots, which you can peruse at your leisure at home, just making sure you get them back on time. Incidentally, because the ballot is so big, its going to cost you 65 cents to mail it back, instead of the normal postage of 45 cents. But as one speaker pointed out at a recent forum, you cant get in your car, start the engine and drive to a polling place for only 65 cents worth of gas. You can also drop the absentee ballots off at the election office, if youre so inclined. So to save yourself a bit of aggravation on Election Day, consider voting early. The count will be long enough without those who vote early, so dont add to the problem. Then you can get on the Internet and watch the returns ... if you can stay up that late. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Voting early may be the answer Take time to remember POWs, MIAs Jim Flynn Columnist A refreshing family power of example Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR READER OPINIONS INVITED who removed her uterus salvaged her ovaries. Two years later Emily and her husband Mike were ready to try for an invitro fertilization using Emilys ovaries and Mikes sperm. They needed a healthy body in which their test-tube baby could grow until birth. Emilys mother, Cindy Reutzel, volunteered. The details of the pregnancy and delivery are better understood and enjoyed by women. Our interest focused on the wrenching decision which Emily and Mike Jordan had to make about removal of her malignant uterus and their unborn child. Was there a place for government in the Jordan familys deliberations and decisions? We think not. The Jordans wisely limited their deliberations and decisions to themselves, their family, and their physicians. In the days leading up to the delivery of Elle Cynthia Jordan, the national political parties were updating their opinions about abortion. Notwithstanding the baseless but binding decision in Roe v. Wade, The Republican platform asserts that every conceived child has a right to life, no matter what the circumstances. On the other hand, Democrats defend Roe v. Wade, because abortion is a personal decision which they insist has no place for politicians or government, They say their endorsement is without conditions or qualifications, but they make an exception that taxpayers should guarantee ability to pay an hypocrisy not mentioned in Roe v. Wade. Politicians and righteous dogooders cannot resist defining and redefining other peoples natural rights and liberties. They are intrusive and arrogant, as well as hypocritical. Meddling in peoples lives seems to require significant time and attention which our politicians could better devote to the neglected work for which they were elected. The difficult and painful decisions made by the Jordan family were right for them, and required no assistance from government or politicians. Any other independent decision they might have made would have been just as right. Congratulations to the Jordan family and grandma Cindy Reutzel for doing the right thing twice. Become a prayer warriorOur world is at war Holy War. Ours is a battle of wills, a battle of ideals, a battle for souls. We battle to name our worlds Creator and to enforce our own vision of what that Creator God intends for all of us. In doing so, we risk losing sight of Gods plan of peace for all of his people. And in taking all into our own hands, we also risk losing sight of the fact that we are not God. We are not Creator and we are not enforcer. We are all Gods children, beloved of our Father. But in adulthood, many are acting like quarreling, selfish children, ever fighting to establish dominance and domain over others, even at the risk of losing the only possession they can carry with them from this earth, their soul. Where do you stand in this battle? Do you remember the hymn Onward Christian Soldiers? Is your faith worth fighting for? Have you forgotten because you have been indoctrinated into political correctness that as a citizen of the United States you have been given the right to speak out when your values are threatened? Are you already afraid to speak your mind, even to your friends, when abortion, same-sex marriage, restraint of religious freedom, Dont ask, dont tell, and other non-Christian values are being forced upon our society by the politically correct? We are in a Holy War. The future of our country is at risk. Our freedoms are at risk most importantly, our freedoms of speech and our freedom of religion. Many are willing to ignore the downward path along which we are being led. Others find it much easier to sit by and wring their hands, forwarding emails to those who agree with their position and hoping that those who either disagree with them, or just dont care, wont vote. But can we take that risk? God our Creator has gave us a plan and his hope for our earthly existence. In Galatians 5: 22-23, God promises us that when his Holy Spirit controls our lives we will experience love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. What a wonderful way to live! Imagine living in a world of love, joy, and peace. Imagine living among people who are patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and who practice self-control. Is such a world possible? Can we ever hope for such a blessed existence in this life? Over two thousand years ago PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 ther complicated by a debilitating illness. He told us how he was a prisoner of his own home. All the coaching and nagging (his words) by his wife couldnt budge him. Finally, his wife, Marilyn Kaye, solicited help from Carol Borden and they finally wore him down to the point where he agreed to visit the Guardian Angel facility. He said it was love at first sight when he met one of the dogs in training. He was completely oblivious to the conversation taking place between his wife and Carol. Well, the result was Michael received his very own service dog, Honey; and a honey she is. Michael then found that his PTSD and physical limitations no longer kept him a prisoner in his own home. Even though he is confined to a wheelchair, he looks forward to getting out with his two best friends by his side. He also shared about how it was unsafe for his wife to wake him up when he was experiencing one of his nightmares, but that Honey is able to sense his distress and is able to gently arouse him. Service dogs provide a variety of duties, including being alert for other medical conditions. They have been trained to detect when their masters are about to experience an episode even before the signs are evident; including diabetic shock or epileptic seizures to name a few. We were all enlightened, if not surprised as to the many benefits a service dog provides to those with varying conditions. The biggest challenge today is to be able to meet the increased demand. It takes a lot of money and a lot of time to train a dog for a specific duty. Not all dogs make it through the rigid training program, so sometimes they have to start over again with another dog. Guardian Angels is a charitable organization that receives minimal government assistance and relies on the generosity of the caring public.

Wed., Sept. 26 11:00 a.m. God gave us Christ to demonstrate how to live according to his will. God doesnt demand that we live that way. He always gives us choice. But what God does ask is that each and every day, as we make decisions about our own life, we realize that our decisions also affect others. In our earthly family, as in any family, our decisions affect how we are perceived by others, how we get along with others, and ultimately, how we share our vision of God our Creator with others. We all know that reasonable dialogue in todays world can be difficult. Havent you noticed how political discussions on television often end in shouting matches with nothing resolved? Isnt this our fear if we confront our friends and neighbors with our concerns for our country? So what do we do? Have you heard the term prayer warrior? Wikipedia says Prayer Warrior is a term used by many evangelical and other Protestant Christians to refer to anyone who is committed to praying for others. Other denominations have prayer warriors, too. I know that our Catholic church does. What Im asking of you is that you become a Prayer Warrior for our country. Pray for the United States, our country in which so many have turned away from God in their homes, God in our schools, God in our courts of law (laws which were originally founded on Gods Ten Commandments) and even In God We Trust as our motto. If you truly trust in God, become a prayer warrior for the USA and our world. Inundate Heaven with prayers for the continued existence of this country, a country founded on Godly principles and the hope of many who want only to live in peace and love. Remember, prayer doesnt change God, prayer changes us and through us, our neighbors, our country and our world. Shirley Strauss OcalaDestabilized MideastStrong leadership in the Mideast kept this part of the world under control and balanced to the point that their governments were in control of events. American leadership does not seem to understand that these Arab states are not democracies and their people have never been schooled in respecting election results. It is my opinion and I believe that the present problems started when we invaded Iraq and removed their countries strong leader. When we removed Saddam we removed one of the stabilizing leaders who was a factor in this part of the world. This hated leader of Iraq was not a nice guy and he held no love for his people. He was a leader who controlled his people and had a strong influence in this part of the world. No other country would test his resolve for fear of attack from this mad man who should have been in an institution rather than a leader of a country. We started a chain of events that have destabilized countries to the point where its citizens have taken over but still dont know how to control their own religious factions. Iran is now one of the leaders in this part of the world with a military that is controlled by people who dont have the best interest of their country at heart. America had a strong part in this change but we dont see it and if we did we would not admit our mistake. Egypt has just finished a civil war that has removed their leader who was really a military dictator that ruled by brute force. Our government thought it would be a good thing to have another democracy in this part of the world. Syria is presently being terrorized by its military under the orders of its leader who may or may not survive this revolution. Again our presence in this part of the world has influenced the Syrian peoples actions. The world is the big loser by our involvement in destabilizing the Mideast. Jerry Segovis OcalaUn-American and manipulativeNow theres three descriptions of people who dont seem to have our countrys best interests at heart. Ill identify the three, then go deeper into each. First, are the people who created the video that criticized Muhammad, and the Islamic community. This is next to treason. Thank God, President Obama had the good sense apologized for it and assured the Islamic people, it was not the American way. Then, the part, where Mitt Romney criticized the president for the apology. Romney using a political speech to criticize the president, showing that Romney was not interested in diplomacy, but in his own political well being in the political process. This from a man who received four draft deferments, so he could pass out leaflets in France and other areas. he has no sense of foreign policy. Just look at the Olympics this year. Finally, President Obama called President Netanyahu, of Israel, on the Sept. 9, to tell him we were following a peaceful process regarding Iran, and their nuclear program, before considering and military action. Now, the president of Israel wants a military solution, even though it could be a disaster and possibly start WWIII. This according to the former Mussad chief on 60 Minutes on Sunday, Sept. 16. He in fact said if Irsael attacked Iran, Tel Aviv would cease to exist the next day. The strange part is, this anti-Islamic video was made days or even weeks before it was released in the Islamic language.

The CCI graduation ceremony presents a person who has been matched with a dog who has finished his/her two weeks of intensive advance training. This training teaches these teams (person/canine) the commands and how to care for the CCI dog. The physically disabled (but not blind) and the companion canine graduate together and then go to their respective homes to begin their live together. There is also a puppy matriculation ceremony is which the puppy raisers have finished their work socializing the pups and teaching them basic obedience. The pups are now about 18-22 months old, and they are ready for their advance training, or college, as those involved like calling it. For example, Kabell is a 20-month old canine that has been turned over to the SE CCI regional training center for advanced training.

Amendments, travel, and a graduation OTOW HAPPENINGS Young boy succeeds in clearing mans nameLEFT FOR DEAD By Pete Nelson Several years ago in Pensacola, Florida, a father and his 11-year-old son were watching their favorite movie, Jaws. In one scene the actors discuss the sinking of the USS Indianapolis in which 800 were thrown into the shark-infested waters of the Pacific in the last months of WWII. The boy, Hunter Scott, is intrigued and decides to make the subject his project for the schools history fair. That decision eventually led to the exoneration of the disgraced ships Captain Charles McVay, who was court-marshaled for hazarding his ship and crew and who, after 23 years of hate mail from families of the men who perished, took his own life at his home in Litchfield, Connecticut. Hunter wrote hundreds of letters to the survivors asking for information about the sinking and was flooded with responses. Accompanied by his father he visited many of the men and recorded their personal narratives. Slowly the secrets of the tragedy began to unravel and point not only to the Navy but also to setting up McVay as the scapegoat. Among the blame placed on the Navy was McVays request for an escort and its refusal, assurances that his planned route to Guam was safe from enemy submarines when in fact just days before the sinking Japanese subs had been sighted in the area. Repairs to the USS Indianapolis had been interrupted because the ship was to carry the atom bomb to Tinian Island to be loaded on to the Enola Gay. Without sufficient repairs to the venting systems, on the night the torpedoes struck, the hatches were all open to allow air to circulate and this hastened the sinking. Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington The stories told were harrowing. Sharks picked off the men one by one; men hallucinated, and believing that deep water was fresh, drank it and died. There was even some evidence of cannibalism although the men avoided the subject. One thing was clear. They admired their captain. One survivor said of the court martial, That was the worst thing the navy could have done. It dishonored the captain and the crew. Ill never sail again, but if I did, I would want Capt. McVay as my captain because he was one of the finest men Ive ever met. Publicity about Hunters fair project brought him many powerful friends and supporters including Congressman Joe Scarborough and Senator John Warner. A young boy, then, succeeded in clearing a good mans name where many previous efforts had failed. But to date the Navy has not apologized for its role in the tragedy.

Then another 15 countries joined in these riots and shortly thereafter, another 13 countries joined the demonstrations. When the president offered to send in Marines to support our embassies in these countries, Sudan refused them. Then on Sunday, Sept. 16, the Israeli president pleaded with the American people to intervene in our own political process, to elect a man who would take military action against Iran. Romney has already said he would do just that, as he is a friend of the Israeli president. Can you imagine another countrys president trying to influence our political process? Israel gets the largest amount of foreign aid from the United States, than any other country, and Egypt is a close second. These countries would not have survived without our support as well as Libya. Israel wouldnt even exist. There are too many coincidences, not to follow this scenario Ive put forth. Then you add that to the remarks Romney made against percent of the American people, who he said are either poor, have no backbone, are lazy, want free handouts, and are on Social Security and Medicare. In short, they should be taken care of by their own families and not the government. He still feels Social Security and Medicare are entitlement programs and wants them to cease. I wonder if he ever paid into Social Security? I doubt it. This guy just is not in touch with America or the American people. I guess silver spoons are like that. So lets send him home, wherever that might be, Michigan, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island or somewhere else. Then he can count his money in whichever countries in which it might be stashed. Just remember a very old piece of good advice, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, and we all know what Bushes are like, dont we? Bill Ford Oak Run LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 State of the UnionsA recent New York Post story stated that the Metropolitan Transit Authority might scrap MetroCard (a mass-transit commuter card) discounts in 2013. The reason? To pay for escalating health-benefit and pension costs for transit workers active and retired. The city of New York says it cant pay the additional costs from its coffers. New Yorkers will also get fare increases in coming years to offset escalating union-costs. These moves will obviously hurt the tens of thousands who rely on the discounted, lower fares. This is another instance where many people must make sacrifices so that some union workers can enjoy inflated salaries and benefits. This is by no means a condemnation of unions. Unions are necessary to protect workers from employer abuses and too negotiate realistic salary/benefit packages. But, some unions hold employers hands to the fire to obtain inflated packages ... which we citizens ultimately pay for through higher taxes, fees, and costs. President Obama needs union support to win reelection. So hes playing nice with the unions. But if he continues, his more moderate supporters might become disenchanted with him. So, whats a president to do? Simple! He has two alternatives: either throw Americans under the bus ... again ... and back the unions, or, if hes truly concerned about the American people, do the right thing and condemn union excesses ... but thats not very likely to happen!

RELIGION Temperatures, both day and night, have been decreasing; days are getting shorter; and breezes have picked up. It is becoming very pleasant to be outside. All signify that autumn is near. Actually, it officially begins tomorrow. I have really been anticipating this. Last night I dreamed I was a dry withered stalk of corn. Suddenly, my corn stalk buddies and I were cut down and stacked in the middle of the harvested field. I was shocked.Mud flapDuring last months heavy rains two guys were camping in the national forest. Drinking beer all day while waiting for the rains to stop, they got disgusted and decided to leave. They ran through puddles to their car, started it, and stepped on the gas, laughing and still drinking beer. All of a sudden an old mans face appeared in the window and he tapped on it. The passenger screamed, Look at my window. Theres an old guy there! The old man kept knocking, so the driver stepped harder on the gas. With the speedometer showing 80 miles an hour, they calmed down until there was a knock on the window and the old man appeared again. Oh no! The passenger rolled down the window and screamed, What do you want? The old man replied, You want some help getting out of this mud?Falling leavesA woman bought a magnolia tree from a nursery, but after only a few weeks, its leaves shriveled and it appeared to be on its last legs. She took some leaf samples back to the nursery and demanded an explanation. Oh, I know exactly whats wrong with your magnolia tree, maam, said the manager. Good, she replied. What is it? He said, autumn.ShortfallsThis is an exciting autumn. Our athletes finished breaking records for Olympic medals, and now our presidential candidates are starting to break records for the most campaign promises. I changed my iPods name to Titanic. Now its syncing. People love autumn in New York City the yellows, the browns, and the rust, and thats just the drinking water. Ah yes, summers out and autumns in, from swimming pools to football pools. When crazy people go through the forest they take the psycho path. Cable TV has a 24-7 weather channel. We had something like that where I grew up. We called it a window. The earthquake in Washington was obviously the governments fault.TV cant be wrongRecently a newscaster ended his evening news program by saying, More on candidates at 10 p.m. Thats the first time they actually called politicians morons on national television.Running AwayA man scolded his son for bitterly complaining about school. The child rebelled and got some of his clothes, his teddy bear and his piggy bank and proudly announced, Im running away from home! The father asked, What if you get hungry? Then Ill come home and eat, declared the child. And what if you run out of money? I will come home and get some. What if your clothes get dirty? Then Ill come home and let mommy wash them, was the reply. The man shook his head and exclaimed, This kid is not running away from home; hes going off to college.Well preservedMay and her mother lived in California where most of the farmers grew grapes for wine while May used the grapes for her preserves. One day, deciding to try something new, they bought a barrel of kumquats and her mother began the preparation for boiling and sugaring and the rest. Finally, when her mother had everything all set, she called to her daughter to tell her that her part of the work could begin. She called out, Kumquat, May, were ready.Say what?A young lady was a theater major applying for fall semester classes. At the end of the busy day she went back to her dorm in a huff of anger. Whats wrong, Shelly? asked her roommate. Well, all the acting classes are filled. I couldnt even get into Mime class. Why not? How should I know? You cant get a word out of those people! Thats all folks! You cant get any more words out of me today; weve come to the end of the Alley.

OK, right up front I want to confess that I am an old fogey. In my defense, as if I needed one, I was born an old fogey. I have what may be called old-fogeyitis, a rare psychological disorder only affecting people born of woman. For many years, I beat myself over the head because I did not understand old fogeyitis syndrome. Years ago, I have learned to accept it, whether others accept it or not is not my problem. It was a wonderful day when I realized I could have a lot of other things much worse than old-fogeyitis. Just this week I saw an article in the picture of supposedly the ugliest woman in the world. As I looked at her picture, it reminded me of one of my old aunts. I know Im not the prettiest face in town but I wasnt born this way. My face is the result of the stress through the years from the old-fogeyitis syndrome. One of the amazing traits of this syndrome is the marvelous selective memory. My memory is so good I can remember things that never happened. Some people look at me when I recall one of these pseudomemories as if I was senile. Oh no. It is not senility it is old-fogeyitis. I really did not know how bad it was until this past week. My oldest granddaughter was playing softball and invited me to come and watch her first game. She made me one of those offers that I couldnt refuse. It has been a long time since I seen a slow pitch softball game much less played in one. I remembered those glorious days of yesteryear when I played slow pitch softball. According to my memory, I was the star pitcher on my team. What memories they were. Since they are my memories, I feel I have the right to make them what I want them to be. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, our youngest daughter and her daughter joined me as we watched my granddaughters first game. We brought our own chairs so we were able to set up our seating arrangements where we could watch our granddaughter play her first game. I am not prejudiced, but from where we were sitting, she was the star player on her team. I am not sure how her team could ever get along without her. It is my humble opinion that greatness like this is inherited. You do not learn that kind of thing on your own, it is something that is passed down to you through your genes. I must have passed it on to her because I do not have it anymore. It was then that I saw it, which kicked in the old-fogeyitis syndrome. What I saw shocked me and it takes a lot to shock me. Up to this point, I was primarily focused on my granddaughter and her pristine playing on the field, so I did not see right away what I eventually saw. It happened when my granddaughter stepped up to bat for the first time. After that, the whole game went blank for me. Behind my lovely granddaughter was the catcher all dressed in the catchers outfit. That did not startle me. Behind the catcher was the umpire, or so he was pretending to be, and that is what startled me. It was a girls slow pitch softball team and every one of them was dressed in their softball players outfit. I believe in dressing for the occasion. The occasion was a softball game and those involved in the softball game were wearing attire consistent with the game at hand. Then I saw the umpire. And the umpire was wearing shorts! Shorts! It is not that I object to a man wearing shorts as long as he does not wear them out in public.

Spotlight on ExcellenceNormally we feature a resident of Cherrywood who has had a remarkable past; a promising future or who has made a contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week we stray just a bit from that tradition and honor the daughter of long time residents, Louis and MaryAnn Hauguel, Monica Wheaton as she retires from the U.S. Air Force. Monica L. Wheaton graduated in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Saint Marys College, University of Notre Dame in Indiana. At the same time as her graduation, she received her commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force through the Reserve Officer Training Corps. Starting in the Medical/Surgical unit, her keen interest in obstetrics allowed her to move into becoming a labor delivery nurse. Monica was assigned to Cuba where she worked with a group of OB/GYN nurses and midwives assisting refugees. She received strong encouragement to attain her advanced medical training through the Air Force Institute of Technology. By 1997 Monica had completed her 2nd Masters Degree in Nursing and began her midwifery practice. In this field she has encouraged and mentored many students; has been a preceptor for numerous midwifery and nurse practitioner candidates and worked closely with physician assistants and family practice residents to militarily, Monica has attended Squadron Officer School at Maxwell AFB in Alabama and graduated from Air Command and Staff College. She has worked her way up the ranks from Nurse Intern to the Acting Chief Nurse, Scott AFB IL. Through hard work; dedication and professionalism, Monica attained the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in her 23 years of service. Among the many awards and decorations that Monica has received are, the Air Force Training Ribbon with oak leaf cluster; Humanitarian Service Medal; Global War on Terrorism Service Medal; Air Force Outstanding Unit Award with 6 oak leaf clusters; National Defense Service Medal; Joint Meritorious Unit Award and Air Force Commendation Medal with oak leaf cluster. Lt. Colonel Wheaton has served with distinction at bases from Alabama to Lakenheath England and from Lackland Air Force Base, Texas to Andrews AFB near Washington, D.C. On Aug. 17 of this year, MaryAnn and Louis went to Scott Air Force Base in Illinois to witness the retirement ceremony of Monica. She was honored with speeches by various dignitaries; by her friends and co-workers. At the conclusion of the ceremony, she was given the U.S. Air Force Meritorious Service medal to add to her long list of honors. She and her husband John plan to retire to Hondo, Texas, with their two daughters, MaryBeth who is 10 and AnnMarie who is 4. During her career, the children were raised by John who is a self described Mr. Mom. Of course Grandma MaryAnn and Grandpa Louis were often called upon during Monicas deployments to offer assistance in this area. From the way their faces light up when they describe their grandchildren, it was certainly a labor of love for both of them. Louis and MaryAnn moved to Cherrywood 15 years ago from the area of South Bend, Indiana. In addition to their daughter Monica, they have a son, Mark who still lives in Indiana. Mark is an electronics engineer and is married to Lisa. They have a son, Anthony who just started high school. MaryAnn and Louis are justly proud of Monica and of her many accomplishments. We also are proud of Monica Wheaton for her stellar service to not only the United States, but to the needy of this world. We are grateful to MaryAnn and Louis for raising such a person as Monica and for being a part of this community. Monica, we, your Cherrywood family; salute you; thank you, and wish you and your family the very best in your retirement. From Your ReporterYour suggestions, comments and ideas for stories for the Cherrywood section of the Citizen are always welcome. Please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. My sincere thanks to all who have prayed for my daughter and expressed their concern and hope for my family. Thankfully, Kim continues to make progress; slowly but surely. Again, Thank you.

Vanity of vanities, all is vanity. A more precise translation is, Utter futility! All is futile! (1:2) This famous quotation from a book of wisdom in the Hebrew Bible has long fascinated readers of the Bible. I, like many others, thought the word vanity referred to our personal appearance, in newer translations, it refers to the futility of life, pushing against the tide of things we cannot change or trying to do things or put into action things we are not able to achieve. The title, Ecclesiastes, refers to the term that means the preacher, known in this book as Kohelet, often thought of as King Solomon in his later years. The first declaration in the book claims that the writer, Kohelet, is son of David, king in Jerusalem. He considers wisdom to be a precious commodity and since Solomon was the wisest of Jewish kings, the tradition holds that the book was written by King Solomon. Modern historians dispute this traditional thinking and believe that the book was written much later in history. The book, found in Ketuvim, or the writings, almost did not make it into the body of sacred literature. It was felt that some passages contradicted the Torah or were self-contradictory, however, the book was included because it mentioned that one should fear heaven and despite its sometimes pessimistic views on life, the book put forth true teachings of following Gods commandments and reverence for God. The Midrash tradition of explanation, tells us that the vanity of vanities mentioned in the first part of the book refers to earthly pursuits, (under the sun) while the spiritual, or Torah way is above the sun eternal and beyond time. The writer Kohelet, takes a rather jaded view of life in the writings and one can tell that he is in the autumn of his life. It is for this reason that this book, actually one of the five scrolls or megilot in the Hebrew bible, is read in the autumn season, at this time of year, during the Sukkot or Festival of Booths holiday. To the casual observer, it seems strange to read such a pessimistic book on such as joyous festival such as Sukkot. Closer examination will reveal that the book forces a confrontation between faith and reason and one can reconcile with the other within the bounds of the Jewish faith. It took a folk-rock group in the 1960s called the Byrds to record the famous passage about the turning of life (3:1-8) with its familiar refrain of turn, turn, turn, and an anti-war message added by folk singerwriter Peter Seger, to propel this ancient wisdom into pop culture. To everything there is a season and purpose under heaven. Throughout the book, Kohelet muses over things he has observed in his life. His observations are timeless and appeal to us today as when they were written thousands of years ago. He notes that with wickedness there is justice and sometimes the wicked prosper and sometimes the righteous flourish. If misfortune happens, one is suppose to reflect and try to make best of it. In terms of prosperity, one must remember that wealth is temporary and can be easily taken away as quickly as it was obtained, so it is best to enjoy life while one is able and to thank God for the privilege. In our everyday lives we often use expressions found in the Book Ecclesiastes: All rivers run to the sea (1:7) the race is not to the swift (9:11) and this famous Jewish axiom often used at funerals to describe a righteous person: A good name is better than fragrant oil, and the day of death than the day of birth. (7:1) May we keep in mind the wisdom found in Ecclesiastes for truly nothing is new under the sun.

Now more than ever, your donations are needed and are greatly appreciated.Veterans Club opens doorsOn Oct. 4 at 2 p.m., the Cherrywood Veterans Club will host a guest speaker from SECO, our local power company. In order to say thank you to our local community, the meeting is open to all Cherrywood residents regardless of veteran status. The guest speaker will talk about how to save money on your electric bills; how to report problems; trouble shooting; what to do in case of power outages and many other interesting topics. In addition to this meeting, the Nov. 1 meeting is also open to our residents. Our guest will be from the Metro Marion County Crime Prevention Division of the Sheriffs Office. He/she will be speaking on subjects like identity theft; ways to protect yourself and your property; and crime prevention. Our Veterans Club is grateful for all of the support they receive from our community and this is a way to return that kindness. The veterans hope that everyone will take advantage of these informative and interesting opportunities.Senior safe driving classThere are still a few openings in the AARP senior safe driving class scheduled for November. Two classes were offered originally but the first class is filled and the second class is filling fast. Dont hesitate to contact Geri to sign up right away. The two part class will be held in the library of the clubhouse on Nov. 26 and Nov. 29 from 9 a.m. until noon. Students must attend both classes to get credit. Now for the good news; if you are a veteran; a widow of; or the spouse or dependent of a veteran; the class is totally free. Thats right, veterans and their dependents are free but for non-veterans, AARP members are only $12 and for those who are not either; the class is just $14. One of the many benefits of attending this class is the certificate that comes upon completion. You can show that document to your insurance company and receive lowered premiums. Contact your agent to see how much you can save with this class. If the class were not free; if there were no financial benefits for completion; this class would still be worthwhile; it could save your life or the life of a loved one.

Vanity of vanities, all is vanity. A more precise translation is, Utter futility! All is futile! (1:2) This famous quotation from a book of wisdom in the Hebrew Bible has long fascinated readers of the Bible. I, like many others, thought the word vanity referred to our personal appearance, in newer translations, it refers to the futility of life, pushing against the tide of things we cannot change or trying to do things or put into action things we are not able to achieve. The title, Ecclesiastes, refers to the term that means the preacher, known in this book as Kohelet, often thought of as King Solomon in his later years. The first declaration in the book claims that the writer, Kohelet, is son of David, king in Jerusalem. He considers wisdom to be a precious commodity and since Solomon was the wisest of Jewish kings, the tradition holds that the book was written by King Solomon. Modern historians dispute this traditional thinking and believe that the book was written much later in history. The book, found in Ketuvim, or the writings, almost did not make it into the body of sacred literature. It was felt that some passages contradicted the Torah or were self-contradictory, however, the book was included because it mentioned that one should fear heaven and despite its sometimes pessimistic views on life, the book put forth true teachings of following Gods commandments and reverence for God. The Midrash tradition of explanation, tells us that the vanity of vanities mentioned in the first part of the book refers to earthly pursuits, (under the sun) while the spiritual, or Torah way is above the sun eternal and beyond time. The writer Kohelet, takes a rather jaded view of life in the writings and one can tell that he is in the autumn of his life. It is for this reason that this book, actually one of the five scrolls or megilot in the Hebrew bible, is read in the autumn season, at this time of year, during the Sukkot or Festival of Booths holiday. To the casual observer, it seems strange to read such a pessimistic book on such as joyous festival such as Sukkot. Closer examination will reveal that the book forces a confrontation between faith and reason and one can reconcile with the other within the bounds of the Jewish faith. It took a folk-rock group in the 1960s called the Byrds to record the famous passage about the turning of life (3:1-8) with its familiar refrain of turn, turn, turn, and an anti-war message added by folk singerwriter Peter Seger, to propel this ancient wisdom into pop culture. To everything there is a season and purpose under heaven. Throughout the book, Kohelet muses over things he has observed in his life. His observations are timeless and appeal to us today as when they were written thousands of years ago. He notes that with wickedness there is justice and sometimes the wicked prosper and sometimes the righteous flourish. If misfortune happens, one is suppose to reflect and try to make best of it. In terms of prosperity, one must remember that wealth is temporary and can be easily taken away as quickly as it was obtained, so it is best to enjoy life while one is able and to thank God for the privilege. In our everyday lives we often use expressions found in the Book Ecclesiastes: All rivers run to the sea (1:7) the race is not to the swift (9:11) and this famous Jewish axiom often used at funerals to describe a righteous person: A good name is better than fragrant oil, and the day of death than the day of birth. (7:1) May we keep in mind the wisdom found in Ecclesiastes for truly nothing is new under the sun.

OK, right up front I want to confess that I am an old fogey. In my defense, as if I needed one, I was born an old fogey. I have what may be called old-fogeyitis, a rare psychological disorder only affecting people born of woman. For many years, I beat myself over the head because I did not understand old fogeyitis syndrome. Years ago, I have learned to accept it, whether others accept it or not is not my problem. It was a wonderful day when I realized I could have a lot of other things much worse than old-fogeyitis. Just this week I saw an article in the picture of supposedly the ugliest woman in the world. As I looked at her picture, it reminded me of one of my old aunts. I know Im not the prettiest face in town but I wasnt born this way. My face is the result of the stress through the years from the old-fogeyitis syndrome. One of the amazing traits of this syndrome is the marvelous selective memory. My memory is so good I can remember things that never happened. Some people look at me when I recall one of these pseudomemories as if I was senile. Oh no. It is not senility it is old-fogeyitis. I really did not know how bad it was until this past week. My oldest granddaughter was playing softball and invited me to come and watch her first game. She made me one of those offers that I couldnt refuse. It has been a long time since I seen a slow pitch softball game much less played in one. I remembered those glorious days of yesteryear when I played slow pitch softball. According to my memory, I was the star pitcher on my team. What memories they were. Since they are my memories, I feel I have the right to make them what I want them to be. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, our youngest daughter and her daughter joined me as we watched my granddaughters first game. We brought our own chairs so we were able to set up our seating arrangements where we could watch our granddaughter play her first game. I am not prejudiced, but from where we were sitting, she was the star player on her team. I am not sure how her team could ever get along without her. It is my humble opinion that greatness like this is inherited. You do not learn that kind of thing on your own, it is something that is passed down to you through your genes. I must have passed it on to her because I do not have it anymore. It was then that I saw it, which kicked in the old-fogeyitis syndrome. What I saw shocked me and it takes a lot to shock me. Up to this point, I was primarily focused on my granddaughter and her pristine playing on the field, so I did not see right away what I eventually saw. It happened when my granddaughter stepped up to bat for the first time. After that, the whole game went blank for me. Behind my lovely granddaughter was the catcher all dressed in the catchers outfit. That did not startle me. Behind the catcher was the umpire, or so he was pretending to be, and that is what startled me. It was a girls slow pitch softball team and every one of them was dressed in their softball players outfit. I believe in dressing for the occasion. The occasion was a softball game and those involved in the softball game were wearing attire consistent with the game at hand. Then I saw the umpire. And the umpire was wearing shorts! Shorts! It is not that I object to a man wearing shorts as long as he does not wear them out in public. The last timeFriday, September 21, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, September 21, 2012 www.smcitizen.com The umpire wore shorts OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L.

Spotlight on ExcellenceNormally we feature a resident of Cherrywood who has had a remarkable past; a promising future or who has made a contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week we stray just a bit from that tradition and honor the daughter of long time residents, Louis and MaryAnn Hauguel, Monica Wheaton as she retires from the U.S. Air Force. Monica L. Wheaton graduated in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Saint Marys College, University of Notre Dame in Indiana. At the same time as her graduation, she received her commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force through the Reserve Officer Training Corps. Starting in the Medical/Surgical unit, her keen interest in obstetrics allowed her to move into becoming a labor delivery nurse. Monica was assigned to Cuba where she worked with a group of OB/GYN nurses and midwives assisting refugees. She received strong encouragement to attain her advanced medical training through the Air Force Institute of Technology. By 1997 Monica had completed her 2nd Masters Degree in Nursing and began her midwifery practice. In this field she has encouraged and mentored many students; has been a preceptor for numerous midwifery and nurse practitioner candidates and worked closely with physician assistants and family practice residents to militarily, Monica has attended Squadron Officer School at Maxwell AFB in Alabama and graduated from Air Command and Staff College. She has worked her way up the ranks from Nurse Intern to the Acting Chief Nurse, Scott AFB IL. Through hard work; dedication and professionalism, Monica attained the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in her 23 years of service. Among the many awards and decorations that Monica has received are, the Air Force Training Ribbon with oak leaf cluster; Humanitarian Service Medal; Global War on Terrorism Service Medal; Air Force Outstanding Unit Award with 6 oak leaf clusters; National Defense Service Medal; Joint Meritorious Unit Award and Air Force Commendation Medal with oak leaf cluster. Lt. Colonel Wheaton has served with distinction at bases from Alabama to Lakenheath England and from Lackland Air Force Base, Texas to Andrews AFB near Washington, D.C. On Aug. 17 of this year, MaryAnn and Louis went to Scott Air Force Base in Illinois to witness the retirement ceremony of Monica. She was honored with speeches by various dignitaries; by her friends and co-workers. At the conclusion of the ceremony, she was given the U.S. Air Force Meritorious Service medal to add to her long list of honors. She and her husband John plan to retire to Hondo, Texas, with their two daughters, MaryBeth who is 10 and AnnMarie who is 4. During her career, the children were raised by John who is a self described Mr. Mom. Of course Grandma MaryAnn and Grandpa Louis were often called upon during Monicas deployments to offer assistance in this area. From the way their faces light up when they describe their grandchildren, it was certainly a labor of love for both of them. Louis and MaryAnn moved to Cherrywood 15 years ago from the area of South Bend, Indiana. In addition to their daughter Monica, they have a son, Mark who still lives in Indiana. Mark is an electronics engineer and is married to Lisa. They have a son, Anthony who just started high school. MaryAnn and Louis are justly proud of Monica and of her many accomplishments. We also are proud of Monica Wheaton for her stellar service to not only the United States, but to the needy of this world. We are grateful to MaryAnn and Louis for raising such a person as Monica and for being a part of this community. Monica, we, your Cherrywood family; salute you; thank you, and wish you and your family the very best in your retirement. From Your ReporterYour suggestions, comments and ideas for stories for the Cherrywood section of the Citizen are always welcome. Please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. My sincere thanks to all who have prayed for my daughter and expressed their concern and hope for my family. Thankfully, Kim continues to make progress; slowly but surely. Again, Thank you.

Friday, September 21, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, September 21, 2012 www.smcitizen.com dent talked to the president of Israel, the video was released. Do you believe in coincidences? I dont. This caused the needless deaths of four outstanding Americans, and incited Libya, and Egypt to riots. Then another 15 countries joined in these riots and shortly thereafter, another 13 countries joined the demonstrations. When the president offered to send in Marines to support our embassies in these countries, Sudan refused them. Then on Sunday, Sept. 16, the Israeli president pleaded with the American people to intervene in our own political process, to elect a man who would take military action against Iran. Romney has already said he would do just that, as he is a friend of the Israeli president. Can you imagine another countrys president trying to influence our political process? Israel gets the largest amount of foreign aid from the United States, than any other country, and Egypt is a close second. These countries would not have survived without our support as well as Libya. Israel wouldnt even exist. There are too many coincidences, not to follow this scenario Ive put forth. Then you add that to the remarks Romney made against percent of the American people, who he said are either poor, have no backbone, are lazy, want free handouts, and are on Social Security and Medicare. In short, they should be taken care of by their own families and not the government. He still feels Social Security and Medicare are entitlement programs and wants them to cease. I wonder if he ever paid into Social Security? I doubt it. This guy just is not in touch with America or the American people. I guess silver spoons are like that. So lets send him home, wherever that might be, Michigan, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island or somewhere else. Then he can count his money in whichever countries in which it might be stashed. Just remember a very old piece of good advice, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, and we all know what Bushes are like, dont we? Bill Ford Oak Run LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 State of the UnionsA recent New York Post story stated that the Metropolitan Transit Authority might scrap MetroCard (a mass-transit commuter card) discounts in 2013. The reason? To pay for escalating health-benefit and pension costs for transit workers active and retired. The city of New York says it cant pay the additional costs from its coffers. New Yorkers will also get fare increases in coming years to offset escalating union-costs. These moves will obviously hurt the tens of thousands who rely on the discounted, lower fares. This is another instance where many people must make sacrifices so that some union workers can enjoy inflated salaries and benefits. This is by no means a condemnation of unions. Unions are necessary to protect workers from employer abuses and too negotiate realistic salary/benefit packages. But, some unions hold employers hands to the fire to obtain inflated packages ... which we citizens ultimately pay for through higher taxes, fees, and costs. President Obama needs union support to win reelection. So hes playing nice with the unions. But if he continues, his more moderate supporters might become disenchanted with him. So, whats a president to do? Simple! He has two alternatives: either throw Americans under the bus ... again ... and back the unions, or, if hes truly concerned about the American people, do the right thing and condemn union excesses ... but thats not very likely to happen!

RELIGION Temperatures, both day and night, have been decreasing; days are getting shorter; and breezes have picked up. It is becoming very pleasant to be outside. All signify that autumn is near. Actually, it officially begins tomorrow. I have really been anticipating this. Last night I dreamed I was a dry withered stalk of corn. Suddenly, my corn stalk buddies and I were cut down and stacked in the middle of the harvested field. I was shocked.Mud flapDuring last months heavy rains two guys were camping in the national forest. Drinking beer all day while waiting for the rains to stop, they got disgusted and decided to leave. They ran through puddles to their car, started it, and stepped on the gas, laughing and still drinking beer. All of a sudden an old mans face appeared in the window and he tapped on it. The passenger screamed, Look at my window. Theres an old guy there! The old man kept knocking, so the driver stepped harder on the gas. With the speedometer showing 80 miles an hour, they calmed down until there was a knock on the window and the old man appeared again. Oh no! The passenger rolled down the window and screamed, What do you want? The old man replied, You want some help getting out of this mud?Falling leavesA woman bought a magnolia tree from a nursery, but after only a few weeks, its leaves shriveled and it appeared to be on its last legs. She took some leaf samples back to the nursery and demanded an explanation. Oh, I know exactly whats wrong with your magnolia tree, maam, said the manager. Good, she replied. What is it? He said, autumn.ShortfallsThis is an exciting autumn. Our athletes finished breaking records for Olympic medals, and now our presidential candidates are starting to break records for the most campaign promises. I changed my iPods name to Titanic. Now its syncing. People love autumn in New York City the yellows, the browns, and the rust, and thats just the drinking water. Ah yes, summers out and autumns in, from swimming pools to football pools. When crazy people go through the forest they take the psycho path. Cable TV has a 24-7 weather channel. We had something like that where I grew up. We called it a window. The earthquake in Washington was obviously the governments fault.TV cant be wrongRecently a newscaster ended his evening news program by saying, More on candidates at 10 p.m. Thats the first time they actually called politicians morons on national television.Running AwayA man scolded his son for bitterly complaining about school. The child rebelled and got some of his clothes, his teddy bear and his piggy bank and proudly announced, Im running away from home! The father asked, What if you get hungry? Then Ill come home and eat, declared the child. And what if you run out of money? I will come home and get some. What if your clothes get dirty? Then Ill come home and let mommy wash them, was the reply. The man shook his head and exclaimed, This kid is not running away from home; hes going off to college.Well preservedMay and her mother lived in California where most of the farmers grew grapes for wine while May used the grapes for her preserves. One day, deciding to try something new, they bought a barrel of kumquats and her mother began the preparation for boiling and sugaring and the rest. Finally, when her mother had everything all set, she called to her daughter to tell her that her part of the work could begin. She called out, Kumquat, May, were ready.Say what?A young lady was a theater major applying for fall semester classes. At the end of the busy day she went back to her dorm in a huff of anger. Whats wrong, Shelly? asked her roommate. Well, all the acting classes are filled. I couldnt even get into Mime class. Why not? How should I know? You cant get a word out of those people! Thats all folks! You cant get any more words out of me today; weve come to the end of the Alley.

Wed., Sept. 26 11:00 a.m. God gave us Christ to demonstrate how to live according to his will. God doesnt demand that we live that way. He always gives us choice. But what God does ask is that each and every day, as we make decisions about our own life, we realize that our decisions also affect others. In our earthly family, as in any family, our decisions affect how we are perceived by others, how we get along with others, and ultimately, how we share our vision of God our Creator with others. We all know that reasonable dialogue in todays world can be difficult. Havent you noticed how political discussions on television often end in shouting matches with nothing resolved? Isnt this our fear if we confront our friends and neighbors with our concerns for our country? So what do we do? Have you heard the term prayer warrior? Wikipedia says Prayer Warrior is a term used by many evangelical and other Protestant Christians to refer to anyone who is committed to praying for others. Other denominations have prayer warriors, too. I know that our Catholic church does. What Im asking of you is that you become a Prayer Warrior for our country. Pray for the United States, our country in which so many have turned away from God in their homes, God in our schools, God in our courts of law (laws which were originally founded on Gods Ten Commandments) and even In God We Trust as our motto. If you truly trust in God, become a prayer warrior for the USA and our world. Inundate Heaven with prayers for the continued existence of this country, a country founded on Godly principles and the hope of many who want only to live in peace and love. Remember, prayer doesnt change God, prayer changes us and through us, our neighbors, our country and our world. Shirley Strauss OcalaDestabilized MideastStrong leadership in the Mideast kept this part of the world under control and balanced to the point that their governments were in control of events. American leadership does not seem to understand that these Arab states are not democracies and their people have never been schooled in respecting election results. It is my opinion and I believe that the present problems started when we invaded Iraq and removed their countries strong leader. When we removed Saddam we removed one of the stabilizing leaders who was a factor in this part of the world. This hated leader of Iraq was not a nice guy and he held no love for his people. He was a leader who controlled his people and had a strong influence in this part of the world. No other country would test his resolve for fear of attack from this mad man who should have been in an institution rather than a leader of a country. We started a chain of events that have destabilized countries to the point where its citizens have taken over but still dont know how to control their own religious factions. Iran is now one of the leaders in this part of the world with a military that is controlled by people who dont have the best interest of their country at heart. America had a strong part in this change but we dont see it and if we did we would not admit our mistake. Egypt has just finished a civil war that has removed their leader who was really a military dictator that ruled by brute force. Our government thought it would be a good thing to have another democracy in this part of the world. Syria is presently being terrorized by its military under the orders of its leader who may or may not survive this revolution. Again our presence in this part of the world has influenced the Syrian peoples actions. The world is the big loser by our involvement in destabilizing the Mideast. Jerry Segovis OcalaUn-American and manipulativeNow theres three descriptions of people who dont seem to have our countrys best interests at heart. Ill identify the three, then go deeper into each. First, are the people who created the video that criticized Muhammad, and the Islamic community. This is next to treason. Thank God, President Obama had the good sense apologized for it and assured the Islamic people, it was not the American way. Then, the part, where Mitt Romney criticized the president for the apology. Romney using a political speech to criticize the president, showing that Romney was not interested in diplomacy, but in his own political well being in the political process. This from a man who received four draft deferments, so he could pass out leaflets in France and other areas. he has no sense of foreign policy. Just look at the Olympics this year. Finally, President Obama called President Netanyahu, of Israel, on the Sept. 9, to tell him we were following a peaceful process regarding Iran, and their nuclear program, before considering and military action. Now, the president of Israel wants a military solution, even though it could be a disaster and possibly start WWIII. This according to the former Mussad chief on 60 Minutes on Sunday, Sept. 16. He in fact said if Irsael attacked Iran, Tel Aviv would cease to exist the next day. The strange part is, this anti-Islamic video was made days or even weeks before it was released in the Islamic language. But, just hours after the presiLETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE10 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comAn informational forum, travel, entertainment, and two unique graduations constitute this weeks OTOW Happenings.Master the PossibilitiesAs you know, there are 11 proposed Constitutional Amendments on the Florida ballot this November.

This training teaches these teams (person/canine) the commands and how to care for the CCI dog. The physically disabled (but not blind) and the companion canine graduate together and then go to their respective homes to begin their live together. There is also a puppy matriculation ceremony is which the puppy raisers have finished their work socializing the pups and teaching them basic obedience. The pups are now about 18-22 months old, and they are ready for their advance training, or college, as those involved like calling it. For example, Kabell is a 20-month old canine that has been turned over to the SE CCI regional training center for advanced training. If you are interested in learning more about the CCI program, visit their website at www.cci.org or contact PDG Lion John Redden or Lion Virginia Redden by phone at 352414-1696.

Amendments, travel, and a graduation OTOW HAPPENINGS Young boy succeeds in clearing mans nameLEFT FOR DEAD By Pete Nelson Several years ago in Pensacola, Florida, a father and his 11-year-old son were watching their favorite movie, Jaws. In one scene the actors discuss the sinking of the USS Indianapolis in which 800 were thrown into the shark-infested waters of the Pacific in the last months of WWII. The boy, Hunter Scott, is intrigued and decides to make the subject his project for the schools history fair. That decision eventually led to the exoneration of the disgraced ships Captain Charles McVay, who was court-marshaled for hazarding his ship and crew and who, after 23 years of hate mail from families of the men who perished, took his own life at his home in Litchfield, Connecticut. Hunter wrote hundreds of letters to the survivors asking for information about the sinking and was flooded with responses. Accompanied by his father he visited many of the men and recorded their personal narratives. Slowly the secrets of the tragedy began to unravel and point not only to the Navy but also to setting up McVay as the scapegoat. Among the blame placed on the Navy was McVays request for an escort and its refusal, assurances that his planned route to Guam was safe from enemy submarines when in fact just days before the sinking Japanese subs had been sighted in the area. Repairs to the USS Indianapolis had been interrupted because the ship was to carry the atom bomb to Tinian Island to be loaded on to the Enola Gay. Without sufficient repairs to the venting systems, on the night the torpedoes struck, the hatches were all open to allow air to circulate and this hastened the sinking. Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington The stories told were harrowing. Sharks picked off the men one by one; men hallucinated, and believing that deep water was fresh, drank it and died. There was even some evidence of cannibalism although the men avoided the subject. One thing was clear. They admired their captain. One survivor said of the court martial, That was the worst thing the navy could have done. It dishonored the captain and the crew. Ill never sail again, but if I did, I would want Capt. McVay as my captain because he was one of the finest men Ive ever met. Publicity about Hunters fair project brought him many powerful friends and supporters including Congressman Joe Scarborough and Senator John Warner. A young boy, then, succeeded in clearing a good mans name where many previous efforts had failed. But to date the Navy has not apologized for its role in the tragedy.

Friday, September 21, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com Behind our hardened veneers, most writers are romantics. We like happy endings, particularly in true-life stories. A recent Associated Press article out of Chicago detailed the birth of Elle Cynthia Jordan to her healthy and attractive 53year-old grandmother, Cindy Reutzel. Over the past 30 years test-tube babies have been born to menopausal women as old as their sixties. What was different about the conception and birth of Elle Cynthia Jordan was the ordeal of her biological mother, Emily Jordan. Two years before Elle was conceived in vitro, her mother Emily had been diagnosed with cervical cancer and had to undergo a radical hysterectomy. Before the surgery was performed, it was discovered that Emily was pregnant. Her unborn child was removed with her cancerous uterus. Although Emily would never be able to carry a baby, doctors www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 21, 2012 About a dozen or so years ago, I was sitting in my newspaper office in New Smyrna Beach when a man came in to see me. He was dressed in rough-looking clothes, and had a long beard that looked as if he hadnt trimmed it in months. I immediately stereotyped him as, well, you can guess, especially since I found out he was a veteran, and weve all heard stories about down and out vets. His name was Tom Ryan, and it turned out he was one of the nicest people I met over there, and one who was most dedicated to what he was trying to accomplish. Tom was on a mission to have a bridge on U.S. Highway 1 between New Smyrna Beach and Port Orange named in honor of POWs and MIAs, thats prisoners of war and those missing in action. It was his passion to keep these peoples plights in front of the public, and, some years after I left, he succeeded. It was Tom who introduced me to POW-MIA Remembrance Day, and the POW-MIA flag. Up to that point, I am ashamed to say I didnt know either existed. The Remembrance Day is observed on the third Friday in September, which is today, Sept. 21. As I write this I havent been notified of any special ceremonies. Many of us remember that big day during the Vietnam War when POWs were released. The joyous reunions with their families were shown nationwide as the country celebrated their return. Some people say there are still POWs over there. Of course, the Rambo movies helped perpetuate this notion. Whether this is true is up for debate, but what is not contested is the list of MIAs, not only from Vietnam but from all other conflicts dating back to World War II. For the families of the POWs who returned home, there were some joyous celebrations as their loved ones came home. But for the families of the MIAs, there were no such events. They are still left with the uncertainty of what happened to their kin who went off to war and never came back. I applaud those who are constantly trying to find out what happened to the MIAs, those who want accountability from the foreign countries in which we fought. With the advances in DNA identification, it is now much easier to take some bones and identify them properly. While the efforts continue, we should all realize what these families and friends are going through, and take a special moment Friday to remember those who were lost, then found, and those who were lost, and havent been located. And if youre ever driving down U.S. 1 in Southeast Volusia County, when you cross that bridge over Spruce Creek make sure you mentally thank Tom Ryan for keep the plight of these folks in out minds.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

However, this year may be different. Because there are 11 Florida Constitution amendments on the ballot, and some of them are wordy, the ballot is two pages, 14 inches long, both sides. If everyone waits to vote on Election Day, that could be a disaster. We have visions of people waiting a very long time while those ahead of them try to read through the ballot and figure out which way they are going to vote. And if they let everyone who is on line at 7 p.m. vote, the ballot counting could be delayed by quite a bit. With a bunch of other key races on the ballot, such as U.S. president, U.S. senator, various state races and some Congressional races, it could make for a very long day for poll workers. Of course, we havent even mentioned the local races, especially for County Commission, supervisor of elections, sheriff and school superintendent. So this time, were going to trust election officials and ask you to go ahead and vote ahead of time, either at an early voting site or by absentee ballot. That way you can take your time, especially with the absentee ballots, which you can peruse at your leisure at home, just making sure you get them back on time. Incidentally, because the ballot is so big, its going to cost you 65 cents to mail it back, instead of the normal postage of 45 cents. But as one speaker pointed out at a recent forum, you cant get in your car, start the engine and drive to a polling place for only 65 cents worth of gas. You can also drop the absentee ballots off at the election office, if youre so inclined. So to save yourself a bit of aggravation on Election Day, consider voting early. The count will be long enough without those who vote early, so dont add to the problem. Then you can get on the Internet and watch the returns ... if you can stay up that late. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Voting early may be the answer Take time to remember POWs, MIAs Jim Flynn Columnist A refreshing family power of example Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR READER OPINIONS INVITED who removed her uterus salvaged her ovaries. Two years later Emily and her husband Mike were ready to try for an invitro fertilization using Emilys ovaries and Mikes sperm. They needed a healthy body in which their test-tube baby could grow until birth. Emilys mother, Cindy Reutzel, volunteered. The details of the pregnancy and delivery are better understood and enjoyed by women. Our interest focused on the wrenching decision which Emily and Mike Jordan had to make about removal of her malignant uterus and their unborn child. Was there a place for government in the Jordan familys deliberations and decisions? We think not. The Jordans wisely limited their deliberations and decisions to themselves, their family, and their physicians. In the days leading up to the delivery of Elle Cynthia Jordan, the national political parties were updating their opinions about abortion. Notwithstanding the baseless but binding decision in Roe v. Wade, The Republican platform asserts that every conceived child has a right to life, no matter what the circumstances. On the other hand, Democrats defend Roe v. Wade, because abortion is a personal decision which they insist has no place for politicians or government, They say their endorsement is without conditions or qualifications, but they make an exception that taxpayers should guarantee ability to pay an hypocrisy not mentioned in Roe v. Wade. Politicians and righteous dogooders cannot resist defining and redefining other peoples natural rights and liberties. They are intrusive and arrogant, as well as hypocritical. Meddling in peoples lives seems to require significant time and attention which our politicians could better devote to the neglected work for which they were elected. The difficult and painful decisions made by the Jordan family were right for them, and required no assistance from government or politicians. Any other independent decision they might have made would have been just as right. Congratulations to the Jordan family and grandma Cindy Reutzel for doing the right thing twice. Become a prayer warriorOur world is at war Holy War. Ours is a battle of wills, a battle of ideals, a battle for souls. We battle to name our worlds Creator and to enforce our own vision of what that Creator God intends for all of us. In doing so, we risk losing sight of Gods plan of peace for all of his people. And in taking all into our own hands, we also risk losing sight of the fact that we are not God. We are not Creator and we are not enforcer. We are all Gods children, beloved of our Father. But in adulthood, many are acting like quarreling, selfish children, ever fighting to establish dominance and domain over others, even at the risk of losing the only possession they can carry with them from this earth, their soul. Where do you stand in this battle? Do you remember the hymn Onward Christian Soldiers? Is your faith worth fighting for? Have you forgotten because you have been indoctrinated into political correctness that as a citizen of the United States you have been given the right to speak out when your values are threatened? Are you already afraid to speak your mind, even to your friends, when abortion, same-sex marriage, restraint of religious freedom, Dont ask, dont tell, and other non-Christian values are being forced upon our society by the politically correct? We are in a Holy War. The future of our country is at risk. Our freedoms are at risk most importantly, our freedoms of speech and our freedom of religion. Many are willing to ignore the downward path along which we are being led. Others find it much easier to sit by and wring their hands, forwarding emails to those who agree with their position and hoping that those who either disagree with them, or just dont care, wont vote. But can we take that risk? God our Creator has gave us a plan and his hope for our earthly existence. In Galatians 5: 22-23, God promises us that when his Holy Spirit controls our lives we will experience love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. What a wonderful way to live! Imagine living in a world of love, joy, and peace. Imagine living among people who are patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and who practice self-control. Is such a world possible? Can we ever hope for such a blessed existence in this life? Over two thousand years ago PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 ther complicated by a debilitating illness. He told us how he was a prisoner of his own home. All the coaching and nagging (his words) by his wife couldnt budge him. Finally, his wife, Marilyn Kaye, solicited help from Carol Borden and they finally wore him down to the point where he agreed to visit the Guardian Angel facility. He said it was love at first sight when he met one of the dogs in training. He was completely oblivious to the conversation taking place between his wife and Carol. Well, the result was Michael received his very own service dog, Honey; and a honey she is. Michael then found that his PTSD and physical limitations no longer kept him a prisoner in his own home. Even though he is confined to a wheelchair, he looks forward to getting out with his two best friends by his side. He also shared about how it was unsafe for his wife to wake him up when he was experiencing one of his nightmares, but that Honey is able to sense his distress and is able to gently arouse him. Service dogs provide a variety of duties, including being alert for other medical conditions. They have been trained to detect when their masters are about to experience an episode even before the signs are evident; including diabetic shock or epileptic seizures to name a few. We were all enlightened, if not surprised as to the many benefits a service dog provides to those with varying conditions. The biggest challenge today is to be able to meet the increased demand. It takes a lot of money and a lot of time to train a dog for a specific duty. Not all dogs make it through the rigid training program, so sometimes they have to start over again with another dog. Guardian Angels is a charitable organization that receives minimal government assistance and relies on the generosity of the caring public.

BY DELPHINE BLACHOWICZ HERBERT Three hundred Democrats were fired up and ready to go when they packed the banquet hall of the Hilton recently to hear Grace Nelson lead a salute to women who have been in the forefront of effective change both here and abroad. The proud to be a Democrat dinner goers were welcomed by hostess Dr. Joyce Blake, party state committeewoman and coordinated campaign chair, and Reginald Landers, Jr., recently elected chairman of the Marion County Democratic Executive Committee, both of whom pointed out that the party is moving on up and ready to turn Marion county blue with the relocation of its headquarters to 601 S.W. First Ave. in downtown Ocala. Former Congresswoman Karen Thurman introduced the wife of Florida Senator Bill Nelson as her personal first lady of Florida and an effective ambassador for women and children across the state and around the world. Women know that power is not necessarily in a position, Mrs. Nelson said, citing the influence of transformative politicians spouses such as Eleanor Roosevelt and her friendship with Mary Bethune founder of Daytonas Bethune-Cookman College, and Michelle Obama who with Jill Biden fights for the rights of our military and against the obesity which afflicts the health of our youth and our nation. Nelson spoke movingly of her trips to Rwanda with her husband where almost a million people died in three months during the genocidal tribal warfares of 1994. Despite unspeakable atrocities, the women of Rwanda decided to forgive their oppressors with the result that women now occupy 59 percent of parliament and the country claims the fastest growing GNP in all of Africa. Hate radio started poisoning the minds of the Rwandans, Nelson said, drawing a parallel with those who kill elsewhere with words rather than machetes. This is not the Democratic way nor is it the Republican way voicing her concern that our children are growing up thinking that refusal to compromise or even discuss differing points of view is the norm. Nelson feels that the gaping division between our citizens is a problem even more serious than the economy, the wars or drug addiction. We must see our Earth as my husband did while in space, with no racial, political and religious divisions, just the beautiful home in Norman Rockwells Family of Man portrait where people of all religious backgrounds subscribe to varying versions of the golden rule Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Democratic candidates spoke briefly following Mrs. Nelsons address. They included Clovis Watson, J R. Gaillot, Frank Bruno, Diana Greene, Jessica Hadley and Judge Cochran. The evening concluded with a salute to eight local women who have worked for the common good in our community. They are: Mary Sue Rich, Karen Thurmond, Edwina Harris, Sue Lyons, Juanita Cunningham, Marjorie Renfroe, Loretta Jenkins and Onieda Darling. Events coordinator Sally Eller Smith was workaholic-in-chief who made the evening a resounding success with serious assists from Michele Kudrna, Stephanie Miller, Eunice Dawkins, Nora Traviesio, Sheila Feldman and Jan Lentz.

Friday, September 21, 2012 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, September 21, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good time for the usually outspoken Lamb to be a bit more discreet. You still can get your point across, but do it in a way less likely to turn off a potential supporter. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Good news: All that hard work you put in is beginning to pay off. But you need to watch that tendency to insist on doing things your way or no way. Be a bit more flexible. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might want to delay making a decision on the future of a long-standing relationship until you check out some heretofore hidden details that are just now beginning to emerge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your reluctance to compromise on an important issue could backfire without more facts to support your position. Weigh your options carefully before making your next move. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good time for ambitious Leos or Leonas to shift from planning their next move to actually doing it. Your communication skills help persuade others to join you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Relationships personal or professional present new challenges. Be careful not to let a sudden surge of stubbornness influence how you choose to deal with them. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might need more facts before you can decide on a possible career change. But you should have no problem making a decision about an important personal matter. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Youre respected by most people for your direct, no-nonsense approach to the issues. But be careful you dont replace honest skepticism with stinging sarcasm. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A newly emerging situation could require a good deal of attention and some difficult decision-making. However, close friends will help you see it through. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Family matters need 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) Of course you deserve to indulge yourself in something special. But for now, tuck that bit of mad money away. Youll need it to help with a looming cash crunch. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A temporary setback in your financial situation is eased by changing some of your plans. Youll be able to ride it out quite well until the tide turns back in your favor. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for understanding peoples needs. You have a low tolerance for those who act without concern for others. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Completewith Benjamin Moore Paint 1,100 sf 5 year Warranty Bestway Painting (352) 438-3381 I wore shorts I was three years old and it was only because my mother made me wear them. When I had control of my wardrobe, I put away those shorts and began wearing pants like a man. I think if the good Lord wanted us to wear shorts, in public that is, He would have made our legs more visually appealing. A mans legs are not appealing, unless they have been in the sun too long and the skin begins to peel. A man, especially an old man, has knobby knees, hairy legs and varicose veins none of which should be part of public domain. This is not something I want to see when I am out in public. I can dutifully attest to the fact that my legs have not seen direct sunlight in over 50 years. I attribute this to the fact that I wear pants every day of my life. Not short pants, but pants that go all the way down to my ankles. Short pants look like you cannot afford to buy the whole thing. For some reason I could not watch the game with the same enthusiasm. When I got home that night I settled down a little bit and thought of a verse of Scripture, something Jesus said. Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment (John 7:24 KJV). In spite of my severe old-fogeyitis condition, I must remember not to judge people according to their appearance. It is not what a man looks like but rather, what he does that makes him the man that he is.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

His website is www.jamessnyderministries.com SNYDERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 team event, we used a various number of net scores on each hole using the Cha Cha Cha dance rhythm, 2, 1, 2, 3. With this pattern on holes # 5, 10 and 15 the team needed to use 3 net scores. One or two net scores were used on the other holes. The winning teams were: first place, JT Lemasters, Noreen Salo, Janet Tully and Ilene Simnowitz; for second place three teams all had the exact same score. Sharing the moneys for second place were Lynn Houghton, Sylvia Zappia, Maureen Edwards, Carole Dygert, Bea Terry, Sheila Adams, Inge Szabo, Elsa Berbig, Judy Klein, Arlene Klann and Barb Davis. I hope the 12 second place team winners do not spend all their winnings in one place! The weather is finally a little more fall-like which makes golf so much more pleasant.ORWGAThe weather is starting to cool down but not the scores of our league players!

Big Scoops had lots of different flavors of ice cream to choose from as well as drinks. The other vendors had an assortment of Italian food to satisfy almost any taste. The juggler, stilt walker and other entertainers were happy that the large crowd had good weather to watch their acts. A quartet played and sang a lot of Italian music. The juggler came right up close to these youngsters but could not persuade them to try juggling.
