On Saturday, Sept. 29, the Marion County Sheriffs Office, along with the Ocala and Police Department and in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), will participate in the National Pill Take Back Day. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a uniformed officer will be stationed at the following no questions asked collection sites: Marion County Sheriffs Office South Marion District Office, 8230 S.E. 165th Mulberry Lane, The Villages. Marion County Sheriffs Office Southwest District Office, 9048 S.W. State Road 200, Ocala. Ocala Police Department, 402 S. Pine Ave., Ocala. The purpose of this event is to give persons in the community who have a surplus of outdated prescription drugs; pills they dont have a prescription for; or pills they obtained illegally, an opportunity to turn them in without facing any criminal charges or repercussions. Marion County and the state of Florida have seen a significant increase in the abuse of prescription drugs and overdoses in the last few years. Many of these cases involve adolescents who obtained these medications from their parents or their home medicine cabinet. The Sheriffs Office encourages anyone who has prescription pills they would like to or need to get rid of, to take advantage of this National Pill Take Back Day to do so. Citizens can also visit www.dea.gov to enter their zip code and locate the drop-off site closest to them. More information about prescription drug abuse is also available on this site. Drop off outdated medicine Saturday Second of a series of stories based on candidates appearance at a forum at the main library recently.BY JIM CLARK Editor Candidates for sheriff spoke to the audience at a recent forum. Going first was Dan Kuhn, currently serving as undersheriff. He recently won the Republican primary. He is a former prosecutor and is a sworn officer who, as he said, has had an opportunity to study at the highest level. He was asked about the budget, and said he has the experience of discussions with the County Commission. Kuhn said the Sheriffs Office has been streamlining, and said there were no layoffs, but the workforce was cut by attrition. He said that to help with the budget a chief of staff position was eliminated, but to keep deputies they added two line-level deputies when a captain retired. The next question concerned privatization, and said that there are certain things that dont lend themselves to outsourcing. He added that you have to make sure whoever you outsource to has the same priorities. Asked about juvenile crime, he said that money is saved by housing juvenile offenders on the same property, but not the same building, as the jail. He also mentioned the WILA (work in lieu of arrest) program which only has a recidivism of 8 percent. Finally, he was asked about personal characteristics that would benefit him in the job, and he said he cares about the community. You have to have a servants heart. Running as a member of the Constitution Party is Bernie DeCastro, who has lived in the county since 1984 and runs a non-profit group that reduces crime by working with people re-entering the community. Weve got to stop that vicious cycle. Asked about the budget, he said he has special business skills he would bring to the job, and does the same thing as the Sheriffs Office on a smaller scale every year. He said that leadership and integrity were the important things on the job. He was asked about working with the County Commission, and Sheriff candidates push for votes at forum Tracking the amendments Page 25 PLEASESEESHERIFF PAGE3 Local veterans need your helpVFW Post 4781 Flea Market on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 19 and 20 is approaching quickly and the vets are in need of donations as there is a shortage of household items for sale this year.

The discussion centered on sheriffs vehicles, and he emphasized that you have to keep the deputies safe, noting that when youre chasing someone at 80 mph, the condition of tires and transmission was important. He criticized the federal government, saying the federal overreach is becoming epidemic in America. Asked about the work farm, he called it a great idea, and gave the current MCSO kudos for the farm, saying it is therapeutic. He said he would try to expand it.

BY WARNEFORD JOSEPH AND ENID B. JONES The speaker at the recent meeting of Marion Oaks Democratic Club was Frank Bruno, who plans to take his experience as a local public official and successful businessman to the bigger arena of the Florida Senate in District 8. He is a 40-year resident of Volusia County who has served his community in numerous leadership positions. His dedication to service is evidenced in a long and distinguished record of service such as serving as a member and the first elected chair of the Volusia County Council. For the last 25 years, Bruno has been a leader in the business community promoting the development of small businesses and economic growth overall. As a local business leader and public official, he has focused on improving the quality of life and attracting industry that would provide sustainable jobs for the people of Central Florida. He was instrumental in bringing SunRail to the area and improving transportation along the I-4 corridor. He continues to work at finding real solutions to challenges in transportation for the community. Brunos work stretches beyond Volusia County as he recently was seen hosting a public round table at the Marion County Library to address the growing concerns in our community about the future of Silver Springs and water issues affecting the region. Bringing together environmental experts and concerned citizens, he led a conversation focused on the future of the community and our responsibility to be good stewards of water for our children and their children. It was quite remarkable that he is addressing a group that is not in his district but, as he mentioned, he wants to get the word out on his commitment to addressing the concerns of Floridians as a whole. Further, Bruno devotes himself to charity and community organizations with a view to strengthening our communities, enhancing the life of disabled veterans as well as others with physical disabilities. He stressed the importance of getting out to vote, reminding us that the 30 percent turnout during the primaries is not good enough. His spoke about three main areas of focus: protecting the middle class; helping small businesses; and investing in education. On this last issue he thinks that the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) is failing our students. He also fielded questions from the audience which included concerns for upgrading the existing Ocala airport to one for commercial use, the re-opening of the Ocala railway station for passenger travel, and the provision of public bus transportation by Sun Tran for the residents of Marion Oaks to the City of Ocala. He gave clear and concise answers and promised to follow up. Judge Cochran, who is running for Supervisor of Elections, was our second speaker for the evening. He has spoken to us on a previous occasion but wanted to encourage us to be proactive in getting out to vote and support him. The next meeting will be Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. Marion Oaks Democrats hear from Bruno The countdown clock to Floridas voter registration deadline is ticking, with the deadline on Oct. 9. Thats why the League of Women Voters of Florida Education Fund has moved its already active voter registration and support campaign into even higher gear with the addition of a Voter Assistance Hotline, 1-855FL-VOTER (1-855-3586837). Hotline callers can get answers to their questions about how changes in Floridas election law affect them. They can also learn where and how to register to vote, how to check and verify their voter registration information, how to change a name or address, update their signature, find the location of their polling place, and request a vote-by-mail ballot, along with other vital registration information. Registration is the key to ensuring that all voters have the chance to make their voices heard on Election Day. Every single vote counts, said League President Deirdre Macnab. Our members throughout the state are making renewed face-to-face efforts to boost registration and compensate for lost time, and were pleased to add this Voter Assistance Hotline to supplement their efforts. Through the Voter Assistance Hotline, callers can also schedule League speakers who stand ready to provide groups and organizations with information on the amendments and issues that will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot. The Voter Assistance Hotline is just the latest addition to the Leagues growing list of resources for voters. The Leagues nonpartisan 2012 Florida Election and Voter Guide is available at public libraries and through local Leagues and other organizations in all 67 counties. Also available online for voters, www.BeReadyToVote.org, a one-stop site packed with information for registered voters and those who want to register. Voter hotline Gas line cut, evacuations neededA private contractor excavating with heavy equipment ruptured a two inch natural gas line Wednesday morning. Ocala Fire Rescue responded to the leak at 10:32 a.m. according to Fire Captain Doug Smutko. On arrival firefighters evacuated two businesses in the 4500 block of Southwest 40th Avenue. A dozen employees were evacuated from Trane and John Deere for a little more than one hour. TECO gas company responded to make repairs to the gas line and there were no injuries. Florida Governor Rick Scott has declared September 2012 as Florida Square Dance Month. In addition other states have declared their own square dance months and the US Congress has moved to make square dance the official folk dance of the United States. Square dancing can trace its roots to the earliest part of our countrys history. At this time there are square dancers all over the world taking part in this fun pastime. That means that square dancers from Ocala can dance everywhere. Even in foreign countries because all of the calls are in English. As is common, most square dance tips are alternated with round dances. The Ocala Twirlers are a new dance club that was formed out of what was the Oak Run Twirlers. We have over 60 members and we dance on Monday afternoons at Ocala West United Methodist church. We dance to music that is a mixture of traditional country western, show tunes, and recent pop music. While traditional western clothing is encouraged for some dances, lessons are taught in casual clothing. The Ocala Twirlers will be holding classes starting on Oct. 8 at 12:45 p.m. The first lesson is no cost but subsequent lessons are six dollars per person. It is recommended that you have a partner to join you in these classes. We encourage everyone to join us in this fun activity. For more information call Tom Warren at 352-237-6416, Norm Barnes at 352-873-1734 or Tony Trinchera at 352-861-9812. Square dancers at Ocala West Two road names have been chosen. They are Osceola Boulevard and Farris Bryant Avenue. Two major corridors in and around the city of Ocala were selected by the Roads of Marion County Road Name Selection Committee recently. The 31st / 32nd / 42nd / 44th / 39th corridor which runs east and west on the southern side of Ocala was given the name, Osceola Boulevard. This corridor will cross Interstate 75 with a new bridge and connect to State Road 200 at 40th Avenue. Osceola lived in Marion County and his village, Osceolas Town, was less than a half mile south of the newly named corridor. At that point on State Road 200 where Osceola Boulevard intersects, a new road will be built, and through a number of different existing fourlane roads, will travel north all the way to County Road 326. This corridor was given the name, Farris Bryant Avenue. Farris Bryant was born and raised in Ocala and became governor of Florida in 1961. As governor he saw that I-75 came through Ocala and was instrumental in getting many of our primary and secondary roads constructed.

It is difficult to estimate how many disabled veterans would qualify for the discount under the relaxed standards, but the state estimates that the tax revenues school districts and local governments would lose if Amendment 2 passes is roughly $15 million combined over the first three years. State lawmakers say the cost is worth it. This bill provides relief to our states aging combat-injured veterans, state Sen. Mike Bennett, R-Bradenton, said in a press release. Our older veterans made great sacrifices for our country, although many did not live in the Sunshine State at the time they entered the military. As they age and struggle with service-related disabilities, this bill will help alleviate their financial challenges. The measure won unanimous approval in the state Senate and House. There is no known organized opposition to the proposed amendment. As with all proposed amendments, passage requires the approval by 60 percent or more of the voters. If passed, Amendment 2 goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2013. Current LawFlorida has a long history of offering property tax breaks to its permanent residents. One of those tax breaks allows a homeowner to claim a $50,000 tax exemption on their primary residence, what is commonly known as a homesteaded property. That amount is subtracted from the assessed value of the home before property taxes are calculated, thereby reducing the tax bill. This form of tax relief is reserved for primary residences, meaning the owner must live in the home the majority of the year and not claim any other residence as a primary residence. Additionally, the state offers several property tax breaks to military veterans disabled while in the service: Veterans of any age with at least a 10 percent disability incurred while in active military service (no matter where they lived when they entered the military) can deduct $5,000 from the value of their property before taxes are calculated (in addition to the $50,000 exemption offered to all owners of homesteaded property). As mentioned earlier, disabled veterans 65 and over who were Florida residents when they entered the military can also receive a tax break equal to the percentage of their disability (in addition to the $50,000 homestead exemption and the $5,000 disability exemption for those eligible for both). And veterans with a service-related, total (100 percent) and permanent disability are eligible for total relief from all property taxes on their primary residence. As an example of how these current tax breaks might apply, a veteran with a primary residence assessed at $200,000 who was a Florida resident when he entered the military and who is 65 or older with a 50 percent disability related to combat, could claim $55,000 in exemptions and claim 50 percent off the remaining $145,000 assessed value, resulting in an assessment on that property for tax purposes of $72,500. Estimated Impact According to a Florida House of Representatives staff analysis, 1,206 veterans received the discount on property taxes equal to their combat-related disability in 2010, amounting to a combined discount of $28,749,630. On average, the discount allowed those disabled vets to subtract $23,839 from their homes value before property taxes were calculated. It is difficult to say how many disabled veterans would be eligible for the property tax discount if Amendment 2 passes and expands the law to include those who moved here from other states. According to the House of Representatives analysis, there were 77,535 veterans in Florida age 65 and older receiving compensation for service-related conditions in 2010. However, the number of veterans in this population who were 65 or older by exact disability rating percentage category, the number who were Florida residents at the time of entry into military service and the number of veterans whose compensation is the result of combat are indeterminate at this time, the staff analysis said. According to the states Revenue Estimating Conference (REC), if passed Amendment 2s estimated impact on school taxes during fiscal year 2013-14 would be a combined $1.1 million in school districts across the state, $2.3 million in fiscal year 2014-15, and $3.6 million in fiscal year 2015-16. Thats an estimate of the combined revenue school districts would not collect if the amendment passes. If passed, the impact on non-school property tax revenues is expected to be $1.3 million in fiscal year 201314, $2.6 million in 2014-15, and $4 million in 2015-16, the REC estimates. Thats an estimate of the combined revenue local government agencies that levy property taxes would not collect if the amendment passes. Friday, September 28, 2012~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, September 28, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Should the state attempt to ban governments from requiring the purchase of health insurance?Amendment 1 is an attempt to exempt Floridians from a provision in the federal health care law known as the individual mandate, which requires all Americans to have health insurance by 2014 or face financial penalties. The proposal also attempts to exempt employers and health care providers from penalties or taxes that the government might impose for failing to pay for health insurance. In part, the proposal reads, Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to prohibit laws or rules from compelling any person or employer to purchase, obtain, or otherwise provide for health care coverage. The amendments supporters say the individual mandate is an overreach of federal authority. This proposed constitutional amendment is about an individuals right to make his own health care decisions without interference from the federal government, former state Senate President Mike Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, told The New American in January 2011. It also sends a message to Washington D.C. that its one-size-fits-all approach to health care doesnt work. Opponents say the proposed amendment is more about politics than law. We should be concerned with healing, and not repealing, Rep. Joe Gibbons, D-Hallandale, told the News Service of Florida in May 2011. If Amendment 1 were to pass, its legal standing and significance remain questionable. Legal scholars mostly agree that the fate of the individual mandate rests not with the states but with the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled in June 2012 that the individual mandate is constitutional. Now that the nations highest court has ruled, the passage or defeat of Amendment 1 has no practical implications other than to send a message that a majority of Floridas voters are either for or against the individual mandate. State lawmakers voted largely along party lines in deciding to place the proposal on the ballot, with Republicans voting for and Democrats against. As with all proposed amendments, passage requires approval from 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved, Amendment 1 would take effect on Jan. 8, 2013. HistoryFollowing his election in 2008, President Obama announced his intention to establish a national health care system that provides access to health insurance for every American. In March 2010, he signed a health care act into law that, among other things, required all Americans to purchase insurance by 2014 or face a financial penalty the so-called individual mandate. Why the individual mandate? Without it, the number of premiumpaying, healthy policyholders may not reach the critical mass needed to cover the costs associated with providing care to every American.Legal Challenges The laws passage prompted a legal challenge from 26 states. Florida took a leading role. It filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Pensacola that claimed the requirement that individuals purchase health insurance or face penalties is an unconstitutional expansion of federal authority. In defending the individual mandate, the Obama administration argued that the costs associated with the uninsured affect the national economy and interstate commerce, and are therefore subject to federal regulation under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Several district courts and two federal appellate courts offered conflicting rulings on whether the federal government has a right to impose the individual mandate. The U.S. Supreme Court decided in June 2012 that the individual mandate is constitutional. Can a state nullify federal law?Now that the individual mandate has been declared constitutional by the nations highest court, do states have a right to ignore or reject that law? Under the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution, the federal government is considered the supreme law of the land when conflicts arise with states. The Supremacy Clause has been tested throughout the countrys history, and legal precedent appears to affirm the opinion of most legal scholars that passage of the proposed amendment would not allow Floridians to opt out of the individual mandate. However, passage would send a message that a majority of Florida voters are against the individual mandate and that message might become ammunition for lawmakers vowing to overturn the law.

Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site)Proposing an amendment to Section 6 of Article VII and the creation of Section 32 of Article XII of the State Constitution to expand the availability of the property discount on the homesteads of veterans who became disabled as the result of a combat injury to include those who were not Florida residents when they entered the military and schedule the amendment to take effect January 1, 2013.Arguments forSupporters say this amendment will benefit older veterans who were injured in combat but did not live in Florida at the time they entered the military. They say the property tax discount can help with medical bills and may allow veterans to stay in their homes longer as they age. It might also stimulate the housing market by persuading veterans to move to Florida. Arguments againstOpponents say state and local governments face mounting budget shortfalls in part because of diminished property tax returns brought about by the collapse of the housing market. Schools and local governments need to maintain the tax base or consider cuts to public services.Should disabled veterans who move to Florida get a property tax discount?Amendment 2 relaxes the eligibility requirements for an existing property tax discount offered to disabled veterans. Currently, disabled veterans who meet the following four requirements are eligible for a property tax discount commensurate with the degree of their disability: 1) current Florida resident; 2) 65 or older; 3) disabled in combat; 4) Florida resident when they entered the military. If passed, Amendment 2 would eliminate that fourth eligibility requirement. As an example of how the current disability discount works, a veteran eligible for the discount with a 50 percent disability can claim 50 percent off the assessed value of his home. Roughly 1,200 veterans received that discount in 2010, allowing them to subtract, on average, $24,000 from their homes value before property taxes were calculated. This proposed amendment would give that same tax break to veterans, age 65 and older, who were disabled in combat but living in another state when they entered the military so long as they now Friday, September 28, 2012~ 25 www.smcitizen.com A n indicator of our cultural decline is loose use of what is left of the English language. Editorials and letters to editors about voter rejection of the tax referenda on the August primary ballot exemplified confusion about the difference between schools and education. School is an institution at which instruction is provided. Confusion occurs when we express concern about whats wrong with our schools. Most citizens care about the current state of public education. Even our least educated citizens know education is instruction which passes on knowledge, or training intended to develop skills. Knowledge and training were passed down for centuries without benefit of todays campuses, staffs, and political hierarchies. Voters didnt support the schools/education referenda on the August primary ballot because American taxpayers have caught on that the public education hierarchy is first and foremost a self-interest organization. In the not distant past education think tanks suggested children couldnt learn without balanced nutrition. School lunch programs became learning necessities. Some time later, after satisfaction that lunches were enhancing academic achievement, elite thinkers suggested the negative effects of poverty could and should be mitigated by school breakfast programs. Despite the benefits of meals and social services provided at schools, public education is in dismal condition, which is exacerbated by our weak economy and our national epidemic of dysfunctional families. We wouldnt be surprised to hear a serious suggestion from Washington that public education could be further improved by dinners at school. Three nutritious meals accompanied by after school tutoring and counwww.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, September 28, 2012 W hen it comes to television, I guess Im out of touch with mainstream America. That was proven by the Emmy Awards list. The big thing that keeps me from appreciating the winners is that I dont have any pay channels, other than sports, where I have MLB Extra Innings and the NFL Red Zone. Thats it. No HBO, no Showtime, none of those channels. A lot of things on those channels are adult material, which we dont have in our house. So Monday morning I scanned through the winners list, to count how many shows I watch that won awards. The answer was none, zilch, zero. My wife had one, the host of Dancing With the Stars, a show I dont particularly like but she watches faithfully. Admittedly, we dont watch too much network television. Most of our viewing comes from CBS. The premieres this week of Hawaii Five-O, Blue Bloods, NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles and Person of Interest are interesting to us. We also like some of the offnetwork shows such as Covert Affairs, or Rizzoli and Isles. None of those were on the winners list. So now the fall season is starting, and well try a couple of new shows and see if they are any good. My wife and I already have a discrepancy. On Monday, theres a new show called Revolution. We watched the first episode together, but now Im turning it over to her to watch. She said it reminded her of Lost, I thought it reminded me of the move Red Dawn. Either way, its all hers. Besides, Monday is football night. Enough said? ELECTRONIC RECYCLING: The city held an electronic recycling day (actually hazardous waste recycling) last Saturday. It was for city residents only. The trouble is, the city didnt notify us until after 4 p.m. on Thursday, way too late for us to get the message out. We yelled at them a little, and they have promised that the next time theyll get it to us sooner, so we can notify people. Incidentally, I took a couple of dead televisions to the site Saturday morning, and they took them readily, without asking for identification whether I lived in the city, as the news release said would be done. I had my license and a utility bill ready to prove where I lived, but it wasnt necessary. Electronic recycling is something that needs to be done. The last time the county did it, it took place at a recreation complex all the way up in Citra. Thats not very convenient for most of our readers. We hope that changes.

L ast week we told you that voting early might be the answer to avoid long lines on Election Day. The main culprit, we noted, was the choice of yes or no on the 11 proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution. When you get your ballot, youll see that the last amendment is No. 12. However, Amendment 7 was stricken from the ballot by the courts and is covered by No. 8, hence the total of 11 on the ballot. Each week, were going to add our own assessment of the amendments published that week. Amendment 1 is, in our opinion, a waste of time. If it passes, it says that Floridians cannot be forced to purchase health care, as mandated by Obamacare. However, the Supreme Court has already ruled that the mandate is constitutional, and that would supersede state law, so it doesnt really matter if this amendment passes or not. The only way that people would not be required to take part in the insurance would be to elect a Republican president and Senate, along with the House of Representatives, and then have Obamacare repealed. Some people think thats possible, but we doubt it. In our minds, a Romney win is still possible, but a change in the Senate is far more unlikely. Amendment 2 involves a tax break for veterans, giving an extra homestead exemption to disabled vets who did not live here when they joined the military. Its hard to find fault with something like this, but read carefully the part about the financial impact, and ask yourself if the state can handle any more loss of tax revenue. We think not. No one should be against helping veterans, especially disabled vets, but the question is how much we are willing to bear financially. Well stay neutral on this one, but advise you to think it over carefully. Next week well take on some more. There are other exemption requests to be covered down the road. Stay tuned. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Starting to look at the amendments No clue when it comes to Emmys Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Supporting schools or supporting education? Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED seling may yet be considered remedies for lack of parental inspiration, supervision, and literacy. Think tanks, colleges of education, and their political patrons will continue to come up with suggestions in the name of educational improvements, accompanied by appeals for additional funding as always. U.S. Department of Education, bureaucrats are working currently on a goal of common standards for all states, even though several federal laws prohibit Washington from mandating, directing, or controlling any states education agency or school curriculum. Education bureaucrats see federal laws as temporary inconveniences which interfere with their control agenda and the interests of their self-serving professional organizations. We wouldnt be surprised if the Department of Education requested authority to classify their deliberations as top secret. Is public education really so self-interested? Bill Gates, cofounder of Microsoft, who has invested $4 billion in U.S. education projects says: Most people dont realize how bad the situation has become. Weve never had a system that identifies great teaching, so we can pass on the skills to others. Educator organizations cringe at the prospect of evaluation. Should we believe Bill Gates observations and experience as a benefactor of public education or the Department of Education, which seeks to dictate all aspects of public education as quietly as possible? Mr. Gates interest is self-funded, and not self-serving. Not treason The writer of a recent letter said that the production of the video criticizing Islam was next to treason. This requires a new definition of treason and a rejection of our Bill of Rights. Then he thanked God that President Obama apologized for it and said that it was not the American way. I dont know what he apologized for or to whom. I hope that he was not apologizing for our right of free speech because that is the American way. The writer has it backward. The governments of those countries who allowed or did not prevent the murder of American citizens and the destruction of American property should apologize to us. How shameful to kill and riot because they dont like our principles. He was shocked that the president of Israel would try to intervene in our political process. Thats what we have done over history. The United States has intervened in the affairs of other countries in all kinds of circumstances. Sometimes to set up governments, other times to topple governments. We try to pick winners and losers. Dan Drake Oak RunIts time to defend AmericaAre we really ignorant enough to believe the riots by the Muslims including the killing of our ambassador were caused by a single video? That is being used as an excuse for revolts planned to occur on 9/11 by terrorists who hate America and our way of life. This was a direct slap in our face as we mourned our fellow Americans who were killed on 9/11 to let us know they do not fear our retaliation. Our embassies are considered American territory and should be defended accordingly, for an attack on them is an act of war. We certainly dont owe them an apology and should make sure we find the guilty parties and do so quickly. We should also question why we didnt have better intelligence that would have predicted such an incident. There are now pictures on the Internet of the humiliation and killing of our ambassador that if proven to be actual and truthful, should be on every front page and on every TV station throughout the USA. We should make sure our embassies are protected by our best military personnel, armed to the fullest with orders to put down any and all uprisings without hesitation.

Specifies that the amendment does not affect which health care services a health care provider is required to perform or provide; affect which health care services are permitted by law; prohibit care provided pursuant to general law relating to workers compensation; affect laws or rules in effect as of March 1, 2010; affect the terms or conditions of any health care system to the extent that those terms and conditions do not have the effect of punishing a person or an employer for paying directly for lawful health care services or a health care provider for accepting direct payment from a person or an employer for lawful health care services; or affect any general law passed by two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature, passed after the effective date of the amendment, provided such law states with specificity the public necessity justifying the exceptions from the provisions of the amendment. The amendment expressly provides that it may not be construed to prohibit negotiated provisions in insurance contracts, network agreements, or other provider agreements contractually limiting copayments, coinsurance, deductibles, or other patient charges. Arguments for: Supporters of this proposed amendment say the federal government cannot force people to purchase health insurance, and this amendment is an attempt to protect Floridians from that requirement in the federal health care act passed in 2010. They say voting for this measure would send a message that Congress overstepped its authority.Arguments against: Opponents say that despite its stated intention, this proposed amendment will not allow Floridians to opt out of the requirement that all Americans purchase health insurance. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on June 28, 2012, that the federal requirement to purchase insurance is constitutional. Amendment 1Amendment 2 Title on ballot: Health Care Services Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This would add an amendment to the state constitution that attempts to prohibit the government from requiring individuals to purchase health insurance. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you want the Florida Constitution to include a provision that prohibits the government from requiring you to purchase health insurance. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not want the Florida Constitution to include a provision that prohibits the government from requiring you to purchase health insurance. PLEASESEEAMENDMENT 1 PAGE26 Title on Ballot: Veterans Disabled Due To Combat Injury; Homestead Property Tax Discount Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would allow certain disabled veterans, who were not Florida residents prior to entering military service, to qualify for a discount on their property taxes. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you want the state to give a property tax discount to disabled veterans who moved to Florida after entering the military. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not want to extend the tax discount to disabled veterans who moved to Florida after entering the military.

Friday, September 28, 2012~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, September 28, 2012 www.smcitizen.com derstanding that some of our Marines are armed with rubber bullets and if this is so, correct that immediately. You dont take the teeth out of the tiger! I suggest it is time to pull our troops and embassies out of these Mideast countries and let them fight it out among themselves as they have throughout history. The only true ally we have there is Israel and I wouldnt spend another dime on foreign aid to any of the others. It is shocking how much money we give in foreign aid to countries who admit they dont even like us. They certainly are not worth one more American life. This is not about political party, this is about our recognizing that America is under attack and their stated goal is to bankrupt us, destroying our financial system. In other words, they plan to destroy our American way of life. What should be our greatest concern in the November elections: Who best wants to preserve our American way of Life? You know the answer! Wayne Rackley Ocala Mideast letter On Sept. 21 there was an article titled Destabilized Mideast. At first I thought it was an article supporting the Republican ticket, but soon realized, whether the writer knew it or not, he was admonishing President Bush for going to war with Iraq, through his, lying, cheating and irresponsible ways with the lives of our service men and women. But, after reading the whole article I agree to a point. Whenever anyone writes that Sadam Hussein was a stabilizing force in the Middle East, they forget the hundreds of thousands of his own people hed had killed. As Ive said, we were in Iraq because of Bush, plus hes responsible for the fallout into Afghanistan and Pakistan and I might say the whole Muslim world. When you add to that, the unstable state of Israel, weve really got a can of worms. I wont address the goings on in Libya, Egypt, and Syria or the other 30 countries weve incited to riots. One must understand its not a problem precipitated by President Obama, just the opposite. He wants to be out of Afghanistan within two years, but Romney wants to stay longer. Theres too many unstable people, political and otherwise, in this country who can do us damage. What people dont realize is, the great majority of wars the world has ever known have been religious wars. In many respects, thats what were engaged in now. Study your history and you will understand. Now, we and other nations, are trying to bring Democracy, to countries, we feel are disadvantaged. We cant, and shouldnt force our way of life on anyone. So why do it. We fail to realize there are two methods weve been using to try and change other countries way of life. One through a political, military process and the other is through the religious process. Both are wrong. We must remember, people who settled this country, were not all lily white as were settlers in Australia, which was primarily settled by convicts and outcasts. Just think, Mitt Romney received four deferments during the Vietnam War to pass out Mormon leaflets in France and other areas. He chose to serve the church rather than his country, and hes still is doing so. We have troops trying to settle a countrys internal affairs, as are missionaries trying to change other countrys religious beliefs to their way of thinking. Why cant we respect each countrys way of life and religion? We have within our own borders, internal political disagreements and religious beliefs. And, sometimes there is violence to solve the differences. Frankly, its those who want the most influence, causing all the trouble, political or religious. Certainly there is genocide in many countries, and when asked for our help we should give it. The key word is asked. We, but not me, condone our interjecLETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 tion into other countries political and religious beliefs, but when the president of Israel tries to influence the American people, to have them elect his favorite candidate, we take umbrage with it. Maybe going back to the isolationist way of life, may be the best way. For those people, who havent been in the service, during a war, they probably dont know what its like to see the dead and wounded, or have a mans head come off in your hands. Its horrible, and I wouldnt want anyone to have to go through it. Theres one group of people who should be honored to high heaven, and its our fighting men and women. They are the best. Notice I said fighting men and women, not 20 year retirees who served all their time only during peacetime to get a retirement check. But, and Ill close with this. If George W. Bush hadnt lied to the world, and over reacted to 9/11, there would be thousands of men and women, from many countries around the world, who would still be alive today. Those who have lost their lives in Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas, and the four brave Embassy people, a couple weeks ago in Libya are a waste. War begets war. Peace begets peace. I guess on a political note, President Obama is trying to close these wars, not extend them. We have had a drawdown and theres more to come by 2014. Bill Ford Ocala Hype, hysterics in the electionMitt Romney is attempting to campaign for the presidency by telling us what is wrong in our country and what he would do to fix it. The various media sources are telling us that everything that Romney has said or done since he started his campaign is wrong. The Democrats are telling us that everything that Romney has said or done since the day he was born has been wrong. The Democratic candidates are fault free Barack Obama and his shadow Bill Clinton. Romney is a threat to the political forces inside the D.C. beltway that currently control our country. A new presidential team, dedicated to our founders basic principles, could disrupt their carefully crafted and very profitable methods of operations.

However, did you know that when an emergency vehicle displaying visual signals is parked on a road with two or more lanes traveling in the direction of the emergency vehicle, all other vehicles must move out of the lane closest to the emergency vehicle? If such lane change cannot be safely accomplished, or if there is only a single lane, drivers must slow to a speed of 20 miles per hour below the posted speed limit if the speed limit is 25 Passport Show ticket sales to start on Oct. 8 O AK RUN C W Carol AnnWheeler miles per hour or greater, or to 5 miles per hour if the speed limit is 20 miles per hour or less. The same rules apply to wreckers with amber lights while making a recovery or loading. The above information was taken directly from Florida statutes. However, similar laws are in effect in almost every jurisdiction in the United States and many provinces of Canada. So be warned! When you think about it, such laws make a great deal of sense as they protect those who serve and protect us all. Oak Run TravelThe last trip to Hard Rock for 2012 for us will be on Nov. 8.

T omorrow is National Museum Day. In an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine, participating museums across the country provide free entry to anyone holding a Smithsonian Museum Day Ticket. Our own Pun Alley provides a preview of the holiday with some amusing museum stories. Dry bonesTourists in the Chicago Museum of Natural History marvel at the dinosaur bones. One day one of them asked the guard, Can you tell me how old the dinosaur bones are? The guard replied, They are 3 million, four years, and six months old. Thats an awfully exact number, the tourist said. How do you know their age so precisely? The guard answered, Well, the dinosaur bones were three million years old when I started working here, and that was four and a half years ago. Nearby, the Chicago History Museum displays Hugh Hefners little black book. In the early part of the book there are only addresses and no phone numbers because it was before phones were invented. More bones Two women archeologists in Mexico were excavating an ancient Mayan burial ground, looking for some remains to take back to their museum. Unfortunately, everything they ran across was badly decomposed. One of them said, We dont seem to be having much luck. The other replied, Keep on digging. A good Mayan is hard to find. Ancient pawnbrokerSome ancient writings were found in a Turkey museum about King Ozymandias of Assyria. He was running low on cash after years of war with the Hittites. His last great possession was the Star of the Euphrates, the most valuable diamond in the ancient world. Desperate, he went to Croesus, the pawnbroker, to ask for a loan. Croesus said, Ill give you 100,000 dinars for it. But I paid a million dinars for it, the King protested. Dont you know who I am? I am the king! Croesus replied, When you wish to pawn a star, makes no difference who you are. ShortsA town in Austria opened a new museum dedicated to failed inventions. Or as Microsoft reported it, Hey! Someone just ordered a Zune. Theres a Hall Of Fame to honor outstanding women soldiers. Its a WACs Museum At the art museum a kid said to his mother, Look, mamma, they copied this painting from the calendar we have in our kitchen. I was enamored with the famous Paris art museum. It was Louvre at first site. Many a time the renowned artist had to paint on an empty stomach; he couldnt afford a canvas. Biologists studying the evolution of cats have been searching for the missing Lynx. Once there were two mice that lived in a museum. One evening after the museum had closed; the first mouse crawled into a huge suit of armor. Before he knew it, he was lost. Help! he shouted to his friend, Help me make it though the knight. Smoke gets in your eyesYears ago a Newberry farmer had a tractor museum. Every time one broke down he kept it. He even bought used tractors from other farmers and kept them in a large barn. When he retired he decided to sell them to an Atlanta businessman who had replied to his advertisement. They met in a local smoke-filled tavern to negotiate. The businessman asked, Could go somewhere else? Its hard to concentrate with this much smoke. Theres no need for that, said the farmer, watch this! He then took a deep, deep breath, sucking in all the smoke in the room. Then he leaned over to the partially open window and blew it all out into the night. Hey, how did you do that? gasped the businessman. Oh, it was nothing; you see, Im an ex-tractor fan. Mummys demiseAn archaeologist digging in the Negev Desert in Israel came upon a casket containing a mummy. After examining it, he called the curator of a prestigious natural-history museum. Ive just discovered a 3,000 year-old mummy of a man who died of heart failure! the scientist exclaimed. To which the curator replied, Bring him in. Well check it out. Later, the amazed curator called the archaeologist. You were right about the mummys age and cause of death. How in the world did you know? Easy. There was a note in his hand that said, ,000 Shekels on Goliath.

Friday, September 28, 2012~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, September 28, 2012 www.smcitizen.com special interests groups has destroyed our governments responsibility to provide protection and encouragement for our free enterprise system. Competition is supposed to be encouraged. We need more water and new energy sources. However the carbon based fuel sources, with their freedom to set their own prices, would wreak havoc on the economy at the very discussion on building new hydroelectric dams. A new president and a new cabinet that is more concerned with everyone and not a selected few could make a difference. A new attorney general who would enforce existing laws could threaten the freedom, fortune and fame of congressional members, financial leaders, bankers, lobbyists and hedge fund managers. The threat of accountability under a law is a great deterrent to violation of the public trust. A functional government with fiscal control and equal opportunities and responsibilities for all citizens could be ours. Do not be confused by the hype and hysterics from the media for their favored Democratic candidates. The only thing thats too big to fail in this country is this country. A heavy tax load on our next two generations has already been created. We must insure this debt does not increase, that we pay our fair share, and our heirs have the means to meet their responsibilities. Get prepared and vote. Our country and our way of life are at stake. Bill Farthing, Ocala Pigs lifeThe TV news showed a clip of a pig saving a goat form drowning.

HEART FULL OF LIES By Ann RuleI n this 2003 true-crime novel accused murderess Liysa Northon is described by friends and family as sweet and charming, a charm she could apparently turn on and off like a toggle switch. Others found her rude and deceptive and were baffled by her success with so many men of quality, all the more perplexing because photos reveal a somewhat mousy looking, skinny young woman given to wearing bikinis and showing up even at semi-formal functions in bare feet. Never at a loss for male admirers, she used men as stepping stones in her three marriages. Liysa always had to have a man in her life, and it wouldnt be long before she began another romance. In truth, her liaisons tended to overlap. She rarely leapt blindly into single life, as she had invariably chosen the next man. Liysa was always drawn to men of a certain physical type. She liked her men a foot taller than she, lean and muscular and usually blond and blue eyed. Early in her life Liysa fantasized about idyllic relationships which no ordinary man could live up to. Thus, a first marriage ended quickly in disappointment, the second providing her with a career as a surf photographer, thanks to the mentoring of her famous photographer husband, Nick Mattson, who also gave her a son, Papako. The allure of third husband, Chris Northon, was surely his elusiveness. A happy bachelor at 40, Chris was not tempted to settle down. Liysa, however, dazzled him as no woman ever had. She used their fantastic sex life and seeming compatibility as a hostage to marriage. When Chris caved in to her ultimatum, close friends were stunned. Although the marriage was doomed from the start, it did produce a son for Chris who surprised even himself by instantly becoming an adoring, doting father. What would have been a glamorous, adventuresome life to a normal woman beautiful homes in Hawaii and Oregon and plenty of exciting travelfailed to satisfy Liysa. In a cold and calculating plan she posed for a year as a battered woman married to a violent man before shooting Chris on a camping trip so bizarre it raised many eyebrows. Even so, Liysa was coolly confident that a jury would buy her tearful self-defense. And she might have pulled it off but for a discovered hard drive she thought had been destroyed.

Professional guardians are nationally certified and are appointed by the court to care for: Persons who are unable to care for themselves Persons who may be vulnerable or exploited by those around them Persons who have no others willing or able to care for them Guardians are required to ensure that their wards reside in the least restrictive protected environment including, if possible, their own home. Guardians secure and protect assets, pay bills, ensure proper medical, mental and dental care. Guardians report regularly to the court with plans of care for each of their wards and status of the wards assets. Guardians ensure that each of their wards is treated with respect and dignity.

The quiet; humble; good natured and intelligent man would have appeared quite ordinary to most people. The truth of the matter was that Gary was anything but ordinary. In 1943, he enlisted in the U.S. Army at the age of 20. He was a member of the 222nd Infantry Regiment of the highly decorated Rainbow Division. During his tour of duty, he fought in the Battle of the Bulge and fought his way across France into Germany toward the final victory over the Nazis. During that final push, Easy Company, of which Gary was a member, liberated Dachau Concentration Camp. Any student of history or anyone who has knowledge of the holocaust can only imagine the horrors he witnessed at that time. He joined the Army as a buck private; when he was discharged in 1946, he had attained the rank of First Sergeant E-7. He was awarded two Battle Stars; the Combat Infantry Badge; and medals and awards too numerous to mention. Then 1951 came along and the Army recalled Gary. They offered him a chance to attend Officer Candidate School which he agreed to. He was commissioned a 2nd lieutenant in 1951 and spent the next 19 years serving in the Army. When he was discharged in 1970, he held the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and had racked up several over seas tours including one as a military adviser in Thailand during the Vietnam War. For 39 years, Gary was happily married to Virginia. They shared two children from his previous marriage; a son Thom and daughter Teri. Teri was a successful business woman with many awards and recognized as Business Woman of the Year. Regrettably she passed away a few years ago. Following in his Fathers footsteps, Thom served in the U.S. Army for 30 years and retired as a Colonel. In High School, Gary was a champion roller skater and later his interests moved to stamp and coin collecting and a passion for model railroads. His son Thom shares that love of model trains. Lt. Col. Tuckey was a part of what has been called, The Greatest Generation. He was also a charter member of the Cherrywood Veterans Club. Isnt it ironic how we as younger Americans view people? As we watch these members of the Greatest Generation, today many of whom are barely able to navigate through lifes simplest chores, we somehow think they were always like that. Its hard for us to imagine that at one time they were young; vigorous; daring and even handsome. It is important for us to recognize their dauntless courage; heroic sacrifices; devoted patriotism and quiet humility. We owe so much to the men and women of that generation and they are passing by the hundreds each day. When they leave us, we mourn not only the loss of the individual; but the loss of part of our history. Will we not forget Gary Tuckey; we will not forget what he did; what he stood for and what he accomplished. Nor will we forget the thousands like him who left our world a better place because they lived in it. Salute, Gary; and thank you. From Your ReporterYour suggestions and comments are always welcome. Feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I just realized that summer is now over. Where in the world did it go? In fact, that is a very good question. Where does the summer go when it leaves? Is there some place that summer, winter, spring and fall go to chill out? When they get there, what in the world are they doing? Someone suggested, and I will not divulge any names only to say they live in the same residence I do, that as a person gets older time goes faster. I absolutely resemble that comment. This past week I finally adjusted myself to my summertime schedule. I do not know about anybody else, but it takes me a long time to get into a new schedule. While I am thinking about it, who in the world invented these seasons? Why didnt they let a good thing go? I would much have preferred that we simply divide our time by day or night. If it is dark, for example, it has to be night. And, if the sun is up and it is shining and bright, it must be day. I could live with something like that. At least I would know what time it really was. I was actually wallowing in a hopeless spirit of despondency. What is a person to do? Then something rather strange happened. One of my friends was playing football and his first game was on a Saturday morning. I thought maybe the distraction might cheer me up a little bit and encourage me to keep on keeping on. I cannot remember the last time I was at a football game. Of course that does not mean too much, I cannot remember what I had for lunch yesterday. It was good to get into a different venue, and air out my soul. Then it hit me. No, not the football, although that might have helped to a certain degree. But a thought hit me, which is just about as rare as being hit by a football at a football game. I had just gotten into the spirit of watching the game when all of a sudden I heard a whistle and a coach yelled, Timeout. At that moment everything stopped. I looked at the clock on the scoreboard and it had stopped. I had forgotten about this little quirk in football. The clock did not start and the game did not commence until the coach yelled, play ball. Or something to that effect. That got me thinking. If they can do that for football, why cant we do that for life? After all, life is far more important than a football game. Who is that coach that yells, Timeout, and everybody stops? What kind of authority does he have? We need to bring this kind of thinking into life in general. It seems to me that everything in life is thought out in great detail except actually living life. Football has been well thought out and is composed of rules and regulations. Baseball the same. Hockey Well maybe not so much hockey. Most games are well thought out, have rules to live by, and if something isnt going the way it is supposed to go, the coach has the privilege of yelling Timeout. How many times could I have used this little rule in my life? Wouldnt it be nice to stop life when you have made an inappropriate remark, maybe you said something to your wife that came out the wrong side of your mouth. I have done that many a times. I think it would be rather nice if when I realize what I have just said, to be able to yell Timeout. Then do it over again. The other day one of my checks from my checking account bounced. That would have been a perfect time to yell timeout and redo the whole thing. There are so many things in life that could benefit from this one little thing called timeout. I suggest that we began implementing this into our daily life. After all, our daily life is much more important than a football game, a hockey game, or a baseball game. I think whenever something goes awry we should have the privilege to stop it right in its tracks and do it over again. It does not matter how many times we have to do it over again, we continue doing it over until we get it right. It would make life more exciting if I knew that if I made a mistake I could call Timeout, do a do-over, and make everything right. I think we need to have a very stern conversation with good old Father Time. He is so much a stickler for time marching on. But sometimes you get tired of marching and need to sit down and take a breather. Then sometimes, you need to change the direction in which you are marching. It is not so bad the time marches on but when it needs to turn around and march the other way that is a completely different story. In thinking further along this line, I discovered God already has a Timeout plan. I found it in 1 John 1:9 (KJV), If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. With this in mind, I certainly want to take full advantage of Gods Timeout plan. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

We are a small organization dedicated to helping animals in all of Marion and a few surrounding counties. Most of our members are residents of OTOW but we are trying to reach out to others in order to expand our membership. To this effort, we have changed our meeting location. We are meeting in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks (formerly PAB Bank). An elevator in the lobby takes you directly there (no stairs involved!). The meeting time is 1 p.m. on the 3rd Thursday of the month, September through June. If you are interested and need directions or just have a question, call 3620985. Our hands-on projects include providing pet food for many Meals On Wheels recipients. Every other week, we fill plastic baggies with dog and cat food. The number fluctuates but currently numbers about 100 individual bags. You can contribute in this effort by donating cat and dog food (there is a container near customer service in Winn Dixie) or sending a monetary donation to 8501-B S.W. 93rd Lane, Ocala, Fl, 34481. We are also a point of contact for animals that have been lost or found (especially in the Southwest 200 corridor). If an owner cant be located, we try to get them adopted. For this to work, we are in constant need of volunteer foster homes. You may have seen last months column on the cats that we have who need new homes. Two have been adopted but the others are still available. To find out more about them, call Arlene at 352-875-9761. If you dont want to adopt one right now, maybe you could foster one until we find a permanent home for it. If youd rather foster a dog, or adopt one, call us and well send you an application. We dont have any dogs right now but that can change in a minute. Some people have to surrender their pets when they move and we need people to foster while we advertise for a new forever home. Our SPCA phone # is 352-362-0985, and you can find us on Facebook at Marion County FL SPCA. One of our most rewarding projects is working in conjunction with local veterinary offices to offset the cost of medical care for injured pets whose owners are low on funds. Since we dont have a shelter, we make a point of supporting the local animal organizations that do. We received a very generous donation last year so we have been able to do more. We are trying to help those who dont have sources of funding except for donations. In the last year, we have helped several horse rescue agencies, a wildlife rescue, a bird sanctuary (OWLS); contributed to vet bills for local dog and cat rescues; helped support the on-going spay/neuter program for feral cats; gave money to Dr. Stoothoffs project to provide food and vet care to animals of the homeless; helped the county animal shelter improve their cat holding facility; and helped several programs that provide service dogs for veterans. You may have seen us at one of our book sales in front of Winn Dixie. Well be having another one as soon as the weather cools off a little! Stop by and say Hello and pick up one of our flyers. Or come to our next meeting Oct. 18, to find out what you can do to help us help the animals!

This lovingly created afghan will be raffled off at the October craft show to be held at the Clubhouse. Members are selling advanced raffle tickets for just $1 each which is a real bargain considering the many hours were spent to complete it. Proceeds from the raffle will go to the Devereux Kids of Ocala; a wonderful organization that assists underprivileged families and children with help in various ways. We support them also by donating many hand made items which include sweaters; hats; crocheted and knitted dolls and animals; afghans; shawls; etc. Some of the toys can be seen on Page 1 displayed by two of our members; Sue Anderson and Sue Larsen. A very big thank you is extended to those who have donated yarn for our charity projects this past month; Bob Goodis and Karen Zacharias and a few others who wish to remain anonymous. These materials are already works in progress. We invite community members who would enjoy working and socializing with our busy group to join us on Friday afternoons from 1 to 3 p.m. in the clubhouse library/card room. Any donations will be gratefully accepted. Just drop off materials at the office any time or come to our meeting so we may meet you and thank you in person. Photos and article submitted by Edna Fazio Rene Bray Comedy NightWorld class comedienne Rene Bray will be performing in two shows at Cherrywood Monday, Oct. 8. This inherently funny lady has starred in more than 500 mainstream comedy clubs from Canada to the Caribbean and of course the United States. She has opened for REO Speedwagon; Steppenwolf; The Red Hot Chili Peppers; Billy Ray Cyrus and many more. On Television she has appeared on Geraldo and ABCs 20/20; Rolando and the Montel Williams show to mention just a few. In addition, Rene was the first comedienne to perform at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for our troops. According to her Web page, she can roar like a lion and purr like a pussycat; some times at the same time. She occasionally interacts with the audience inviting questions but theres no telling what kind of answers will be given. What is for sure, is that Rene it is her endearing, unique and quick comedic wit that brings audiences back time and again begging for more. Tickets are free thanks to Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management but you must have a ticket to be admitted. Seating is limited and the shows; especially the first show is nearly sold out so you must act fast. See Geri and get your ticket. Your admission ticket also will enter you into the raffle for a gift certificate. Guest tickets are $12 and limited to adults only. Doors open at 5 p.m. for the first show at 5:30. Doors open for the second show at 7 p.m. is set for 7:30 p.m. and light snacks and refreshments will be served prior to both. Dont miss out. You are guaranteed to laugh at this comedic genius as she pulls out all the stops for our Cherrywood residents. Bocce Ball changesOur ever popular Bocce Ball night has been changed effective the 1st of October. Bocce will now be held on Friday nights at 7. This is a change from the summer schedule of 8 p.m. on Saturdays. While the night and time may be different, you can bet that Bocce Night will be the same good time with great competition and lots of laughter. For those who play, bragging rights are at stake so everyone tries to win. For those who are spectators and supporters, the only thing at stake is a good time so everyone wins. There are many events at Cherrywood that bring out the best people for the best times and Bocce is one of those events. If youve never played before, join the group for some friendly lessons and pointers. If youre an accomplished player, come and enjoy the competition and if youre neither; just come on out and socialize with friends and neighbors. You wont be disappointed when you join the crew at Bocce Ball at their new time. Remember; bring your drinks and snacks on Fridays at 7 p.m. to the courts behind the clubhouse. Its where you want to be. Food Drive The Veterans Club of Cherrywood will be holding its Food Drive for Ritz House on Thursday, Oct. 11, in the morning hours. Nothing could be easier than supporting this worthwhile cause. All you need to do is buy a few extra cans of food or some cleaning supplies; paper products or non-perishable snacks and place them in a bag. Next just place the bag near your mail box on the morning of Oct. 11 and a Veterans Club member will come along and pick up the bag. Could it be any easier? Ritz House of Ocala is a facility for homeless veterans. At this safe and secure location, men and women who have served in our military are given the opportunity to change their lives and rejoin society in a meaningful and purposeful way. Support staff and the programs at Ritz House enable veterans to overcome addictions and emotional problems; to find and to learn new skills and how to care for themselves. Cherrywood Veterans Club has long been a supporter of this endeavor. Wont you help our Veterans Club to help those less fortunate individuals who gave their service for us? Craft show extraordinaireOn Oct. 13, crafters from Cherrywood and even outside of our community will be displaying their articles for sale in the clubhouse. The doors open at 9 a.m. when you can get a free cup of coffee or tea at then walk through the booths displaying a wide variety of arts and crafts. Youll find everything from painted cypress knees to wind chimes and everything in between. Just a few of the items will be ceramics to tote bags; jewelry to handmade baskets; beaded angels to woodworking; flower arrangements to painted gourds. There is no end to the talents and imaginations of our local artisans and there is no better place to see those talents than at Cherrywood. Lunch will be served, so plan to spend some quality time. Tuna or chicken salad sandwich with chips is only $3 or choose a hot dog and chips for just $1.50. Get a drink of lemonade or iced tea for $.50 to go with your lunch. Why not get some friends together and make a fun day of it at the Cherrywood Craft Show.

This lovingly created afghan will be raffled off at the October craft show to be held at the Clubhouse.

Proceeds from the raffle will go to the Devereux Kids of Ocala; a wonderful organization that assists underprivileged families and children with help in various ways. We support them also by donating many hand made items which include sweaters; hats; crocheted and knitted dolls and animals; afghans; shawls; etc. Some of the toys can be seen on Page 1 displayed by two of our members; Sue Anderson and Sue Larsen. A very big thank you is extended to those who have donated yarn for our charity projects this past month; Bob Goodis and Karen Zacharias and a few others who wish to remain anonymous. These materials are already works in progress. We invite community members who would enjoy working and socializing with our busy group to join us on Friday afternoons from 1 to 3 p.m. in the clubhouse library/card room. Any donations will be gratefully accepted. Just drop off materials at the office any time or come to our meeting so we may meet you and thank you in person.

We are a small organization dedicated to helping animals in all of Marion and a few surrounding counties. Most of our members are residents of OTOW but we are trying to reach out to others in order to expand our membership. To this effort, we have changed our meeting location. We are meeting in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks (formerly PAB Bank). An elevator in the lobby takes you directly there (no stairs involved!). The meeting time is 1 p.m. on the 3rd Thursday of the month, September through June. If you are interested and need directions or just have a question, call 3620985. Our hands-on projects include providing pet food for many Meals On Wheels recipients. Every other week, we fill plastic baggies with dog and cat food. The number fluctuates but currently numbers about 100 individual bags. You can contribute in this effort by donating cat and dog food (there is a container near customer service in Winn Dixie) or sending a monetary donation to 8501-B S.W. 93rd Lane, Ocala, Fl, 34481. We are also a point of contact for animals that have been lost or found (especially in the Southwest 200 corridor). If an owner cant be located, we try to get them adopted. For this to work, we are in constant need of volunteer foster homes. You may have seen last months column on the cats that we have who need new homes. Two have been adopted but the others are still available. To find out more about them, call Arlene at 352-875-9761. If you dont want to adopt one right now, maybe you could foster one until we find a permanent home for it. If youd rather foster a dog, or adopt one, call us and well send you an application. We dont have any dogs right now but that can change in a minute. Some people have to surrender their pets when they move and we need people to foster while we advertise for a new forever home. Our SPCA phone # is 352-362-0985, and you can find us on Facebook at Marion County FL SPCA. One of our most rewarding projects is working in conjunction with local veterinary offices to offset the cost of medical care for injured pets whose owners are low on funds. Since we dont have a shelter, we make a point of supporting the local animal organizations that do. We received a very generous donation last year so we have been able to do more. We are trying to help those who dont have sources of funding except for donations. In the last year, we have helped several horse rescue agencies, a wildlife rescue, a bird sanctuary (OWLS); contributed to vet bills for local dog and cat rescues; helped support the on-going spay/neuter program for feral cats; gave money to Dr. Stoothoffs project to provide food and vet care to animals of the homeless; helped the county animal shelter improve their cat holding facility; and helped several programs that provide service dogs for veterans. You may have seen us at one of our book sales in front of Winn Dixie. Well be having another one as soon as the weather cools off a little! Stop by and say Hello and pick up one of our flyers. Or come to our next meeting Oct. 18, to find out what you can do to help us help the animals!

The quiet; humble; good natured and intelligent man would have appeared quite ordinary to most people. The truth of the matter was that Gary was anything but ordinary. In 1943, he enlisted in the U.S. Army at the age of 20. He was a member of the 222nd Infantry Regiment of the highly decorated Rainbow Division. During his tour of duty, he fought in the Battle of the Bulge and fought his way across France into Germany toward the final victory over the Nazis. During that final push, Easy Company, of which Gary was a member, liberated Dachau Concentration Camp. Any student of history or anyone who has knowledge of the holocaust can only imagine the horrors he witnessed at that time. He joined the Army as a buck private; when he was discharged in 1946, he had attained the rank of First Sergeant E-7. He was awarded two Battle Stars; the Combat Infantry Badge; and medals and awards too numerous to mention. Then 1951 came along and the Army recalled Gary. They offered him a chance to attend Officer Candidate School which he agreed to. He was commissioned a 2nd lieutenant in 1951 and spent the next 19 years serving in the Army. When he was discharged in 1970, he held the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and had racked up several over seas tours including one as a military adviser in Thailand during the Vietnam War. For 39 years, Gary was happily married to Virginia. They shared two children from his previous marriage; a son Thom and daughter Teri. Teri was a successful business woman with many awards and recognized as Business Woman of the Year. Regrettably she passed away a few years ago. Following in his Fathers footsteps, Thom served in the U.S. Army for 30 years and retired as a Colonel. In High School, Gary was a champion roller skater and later his interests moved to stamp and coin collecting and a passion for model railroads. His son Thom shares that love of model trains. Lt. Col. Tuckey was a part of what has been called, The Greatest Generation. He was also a charter member of the Cherrywood Veterans Club. Isnt it ironic how we as younger Americans view people? As we watch these members of the Greatest Generation, today many of whom are barely able to navigate through lifes simplest chores, we somehow think they were always like that. Its hard for us to imagine that at one time they were young; vigorous; daring and even handsome. It is important for us to recognize their dauntless courage; heroic sacrifices; devoted patriotism and quiet humility. We owe so much to the men and women of that generation and they are passing by the hundreds each day. When they leave us, we mourn not only the loss of the individual; but the loss of part of our history. Will we not forget Gary Tuckey; we will not forget what he did; what he stood for and what he accomplished. Nor will we forget the thousands like him who left our world a better place because they lived in it. Salute, Gary; and thank you. From Your ReporterYour suggestions and comments are always welcome. Feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I just realized that summer is now over. Where in the world did it go? In fact, that is a very good question. Where does the summer go when it leaves? Is there some place that summer, winter, spring and fall go to chill out? When they get there, what in the world are they doing? Someone suggested, and I will not divulge any names only to say they live in the same residence I do, that as a person gets older time goes faster. I absolutely resemble that comment. This past week I finally adjusted myself to my summertime schedule. I do not know about anybody else, but it takes me a long time to get into a new schedule. While I am thinking about it, who in the world invented these seasons? Why didnt they let a good thing go? I would much have preferred that we simply divide our time by day or night. If it is dark, for example, it has to be night. And, if the sun is up and it is shining and bright, it must be day. I could live with something like that. At least I would know what time it really was. I was actually wallowing in a hopeless spirit of despondency. What is a person to do? Then something rather strange happened. One of my friends was playing football and his first game was on a Saturday morning. I thought maybe the distraction might cheer me up a little bit and encourage me to keep on keeping on. I cannot remember the last time I was at a football game. Of course that does not mean too much, I cannot remember what I had for lunch yesterday. It was good to get into a different venue, and air out my soul. Then it hit me. No, not the football, although that might have helped to a certain degree. But a thought hit me, which is just about as rare as being hit by a football at a football game. I had just gotten into the spirit of watching the game when all of a sudden I heard a whistle and a coach yelled, Timeout. At that moment everything stopped. I looked at the clock on the scoreboard and it had stopped. I had forgotten about this little quirk in football. The clock did not start and the game did not commence until the coach yelled, play ball. Or something to that effect. That got me thinking. If they can do that for football, why cant we do that for life? After all, life is far more important than a football game. Who is that coach that yells, Timeout, and everybody stops? What kind of authority does he have? We need to bring this kind of thinking into life in general. It seems to me that everything in life is thought out in great detail except actually living life. Football has been well thought out and is composed of rules and regulations. Baseball the same. Hockey Well maybe not so much hockey. Most games are well thought out, have rules to live by, and if something isnt going the way it is supposed to go, the coach has the privilege of yelling Timeout. How many times could I have used this little rule in my life? Wouldnt it be nice to stop life when you have made an inappropriate remark, maybe you said something to your wife that came out the wrong side of your mouth. I have done that many a times. I think it would be rather nice if when I realize what I have just said, to be able to yell Timeout. Then do it over again. The other day one of my checks from my checking account bounced. That would have been a perfect time to yell timeout and redo the whole thing. There are so many things in life that could benefit from this one little thing called timeout. I suggest that we began implementing this into our daily life. After all, our daily life is much more important than a football game, a hockey game, or a baseball game. I think whenever something goes awry we should have the privilege to stop it right in its tracks and do it over again. It does not matter how many times we have to do it over again, we continue doing it over until we get it right. It would make life more exciting if I knew that if I made a mistake I could call Timeout, do a do-over, and make everything right. I think we need to have a very stern conversation with good old Father Time. He is so much a stickler for time marching on. But sometimes you get tired of marching and need to sit down and take a breather. Then sometimes, you need to change the direction in which you are marching. It is not so bad the time marches on but when it needs to turn around and march the other way that is a completely different story. In thinking further along this line, I discovered God already has a Timeout plan. I found it in 1 John 1:9 (KJV), If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. With this in mind, I certainly want to take full advantage of Gods Timeout plan. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Friday, September 28, 2012~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, September 28, 2012 www.smcitizen.com special interests groups has destroyed our governments responsibility to provide protection and encouragement for our free enterprise system. Competition is supposed to be encouraged. We need more water and new energy sources. However the carbon based fuel sources, with their freedom to set their own prices, would wreak havoc on the economy at the very discussion on building new hydroelectric dams. A new president and a new cabinet that is more concerned with everyone and not a selected few could make a difference. A new attorney general who would enforce existing laws could threaten the freedom, fortune and fame of congressional members, financial leaders, bankers, lobbyists and hedge fund managers. The threat of accountability under a law is a great deterrent to violation of the public trust. A functional government with fiscal control and equal opportunities and responsibilities for all citizens could be ours. Do not be confused by the hype and hysterics from the media for their favored Democratic candidates. The only thing thats too big to fail in this country is this country. A heavy tax load on our next two generations has already been created. We must insure this debt does not increase, that we pay our fair share, and our heirs have the means to meet their responsibilities. Get prepared and vote. Our country and our way of life are at stake. Bill Farthing, Ocala Pigs lifeThe TV news showed a clip of a pig saving a goat form drowning. And we humans keep devising ways to kill our fellow man, even to the extent of killing ourselves to do it. Hey people! Is there a message here? If you have eyes to see, I hope you have heart to hear. Thank God for not giving up on us yet. Joan Hoke Ocala Thanks Good Samaritans We would like to thank the two men who helped pick me up when I fell outside of McDonalds on State Road 200, Sept 16.

HEART FULL OF LIES By Ann RuleI n this 2003 true-crime novel accused murderess Liysa Northon is described by friends and family as sweet and charming, a charm she could apparently turn on and off like a toggle switch. Others found her rude and deceptive and were baffled by her success with so many men of quality, all the more perplexing because photos reveal a somewhat mousy looking, skinny young woman given to wearing bikinis and showing up even at semi-formal functions in bare feet. Never at a loss for male admirers, she used men as stepping stones in her three marriages. Liysa always had to have a man in her life, and it wouldnt be long before she began another romance. In truth, her liaisons tended to overlap. She rarely leapt blindly into single life, as she had invariably chosen the next man. Liysa was always drawn to men of a certain physical type. She liked her men a foot taller than she, lean and muscular and usually blond and blue eyed. Early in her life Liysa fantasized about idyllic relationships which no ordinary man could live up to. Thus, a first marriage ended quickly in disappointment, the second providing her with a career as a surf photographer, thanks to the mentoring of her famous photographer husband, Nick Mattson, who also gave her a son, Papako. The allure of third husband, Chris Northon, was surely his elusiveness. A happy bachelor at 40, Chris was not tempted to settle down. Liysa, however, dazzled him as no woman ever had. She used their fantastic sex life and seeming compatibility as a hostage to marriage. When Chris caved in to her ultimatum, close friends were stunned. Although the marriage was doomed from the start, it did produce a son for Chris who surprised even himself by instantly becoming an adoring, doting father. What would have been a glamorous, adventuresome life to a normal woman beautiful homes in Hawaii and Oregon and plenty of exciting travelfailed to satisfy Liysa. In a cold and calculating plan she posed for a year as a battered woman married to a violent man before shooting Chris on a camping trip so bizarre it raised many eyebrows. Even so, Liysa was coolly confident that a jury would buy her tearful self-defense. And she might have pulled it off but for a discovered hard drive she thought had been destroyed.

Governor Scott has proclaimed October as Florida Guardianship Month. Well just what is a Guardian? Great question we hear that often. Professional guardians are nationally certified and are appointed by the court to care for: Persons who are unable to care for themselves Persons who may be vulnerable or exploited by those around them Persons who have no others willing or able to care for them Guardians are required to ensure that their wards reside in the least restrictive protected environment including, if possible, their own home. Guardians secure and protect assets, pay bills, ensure proper medical, mental and dental care. Guardians report regularly to the court with plans of care for each of their wards and status of the wards assets. Guardians ensure that each of their wards is treated with respect and dignity.

T omorrow is National Museum Day. In an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine, participating museums across the country provide free entry to anyone holding a Smithsonian Museum Day Ticket. Our own Pun Alley provides a preview of the holiday with some amusing museum stories. Dry bonesTourists in the Chicago Museum of Natural History marvel at the dinosaur bones. One day one of them asked the guard, Can you tell me how old the dinosaur bones are? The guard replied, They are 3 million, four years, and six months old. Thats an awfully exact number, the tourist said. How do you know their age so precisely? The guard answered, Well, the dinosaur bones were three million years old when I started working here, and that was four and a half years ago. Nearby, the Chicago History Museum displays Hugh Hefners little black book. In the early part of the book there are only addresses and no phone numbers because it was before phones were invented. More bones Two women archeologists in Mexico were excavating an ancient Mayan burial ground, looking for some remains to take back to their museum. Unfortunately, everything they ran across was badly decomposed. One of them said, We dont seem to be having much luck. The other replied, Keep on digging. A good Mayan is hard to find. Ancient pawnbrokerSome ancient writings were found in a Turkey museum about King Ozymandias of Assyria. He was running low on cash after years of war with the Hittites. His last great possession was the Star of the Euphrates, the most valuable diamond in the ancient world. Desperate, he went to Croesus, the pawnbroker, to ask for a loan. Croesus said, Ill give you 100,000 dinars for it. But I paid a million dinars for it, the King protested. Dont you know who I am? I am the king! Croesus replied, When you wish to pawn a star, makes no difference who you are. ShortsA town in Austria opened a new museum dedicated to failed inventions. Or as Microsoft reported it, Hey! Someone just ordered a Zune. Theres a Hall Of Fame to honor outstanding women soldiers. Its a WACs Museum At the art museum a kid said to his mother, Look, mamma, they copied this painting from the calendar we have in our kitchen. I was enamored with the famous Paris art museum. It was Louvre at first site. Many a time the renowned artist had to paint on an empty stomach; he couldnt afford a canvas. Biologists studying the evolution of cats have been searching for the missing Lynx. Once there were two mice that lived in a museum. One evening after the museum had closed; the first mouse crawled into a huge suit of armor. Before he knew it, he was lost. Help! he shouted to his friend, Help me make it though the knight. Smoke gets in your eyesYears ago a Newberry farmer had a tractor museum. Every time one broke down he kept it. He even bought used tractors from other farmers and kept them in a large barn. When he retired he decided to sell them to an Atlanta businessman who had replied to his advertisement. They met in a local smoke-filled tavern to negotiate. The businessman asked, Could go somewhere else? Its hard to concentrate with this much smoke. Theres no need for that, said the farmer, watch this! He then took a deep, deep breath, sucking in all the smoke in the room. Then he leaned over to the partially open window and blew it all out into the night. Hey, how did you do that? gasped the businessman. Oh, it was nothing; you see, Im an ex-tractor fan. Mummys demiseAn archaeologist digging in the Negev Desert in Israel came upon a casket containing a mummy. After examining it, he called the curator of a prestigious natural-history museum. Ive just discovered a 3,000 year-old mummy of a man who died of heart failure! the scientist exclaimed. To which the curator replied, Bring him in. Well check it out. Later, the amazed curator called the archaeologist. You were right about the mummys age and cause of death. How in the world did you know? Easy. There was a note in his hand that said, ,000 Shekels on Goliath.

Friday, September 28, 2012~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, September 28, 2012 www.smcitizen.com derstanding that some of our Marines are armed with rubber bullets and if this is so, correct that immediately. You dont take the teeth out of the tiger! I suggest it is time to pull our troops and embassies out of these Mideast countries and let them fight it out among themselves as they have throughout history. The only true ally we have there is Israel and I wouldnt spend another dime on foreign aid to any of the others. It is shocking how much money we give in foreign aid to countries who admit they dont even like us. They certainly are not worth one more American life. This is not about political party, this is about our recognizing that America is under attack and their stated goal is to bankrupt us, destroying our financial system. In other words, they plan to destroy our American way of life. What should be our greatest concern in the November elections: Who best wants to preserve our American way of Life? You know the answer! Wayne Rackley Ocala Mideast letter On Sept. 21 there was an article titled Destabilized Mideast. At first I thought it was an article supporting the Republican ticket, but soon realized, whether the writer knew it or not, he was admonishing President Bush for going to war with Iraq, through his, lying, cheating and irresponsible ways with the lives of our service men and women. But, after reading the whole article I agree to a point. Whenever anyone writes that Sadam Hussein was a stabilizing force in the Middle East, they forget the hundreds of thousands of his own people hed had killed. As Ive said, we were in Iraq because of Bush, plus hes responsible for the fallout into Afghanistan and Pakistan and I might say the whole Muslim world. When you add to that, the unstable state of Israel, weve really got a can of worms. I wont address the goings on in Libya, Egypt, and Syria or the other 30 countries weve incited to riots. One must understand its not a problem precipitated by President Obama, just the opposite. He wants to be out of Afghanistan within two years, but Romney wants to stay longer. Theres too many unstable people, political and otherwise, in this country who can do us damage. What people dont realize is, the great majority of wars the world has ever known have been religious wars. In many respects, thats what were engaged in now. Study your history and you will understand. Now, we and other nations, are trying to bring Democracy, to countries, we feel are disadvantaged. We cant, and shouldnt force our way of life on anyone. So why do it. We fail to realize there are two methods weve been using to try and change other countries way of life. One through a political, military process and the other is through the religious process. Both are wrong. We must remember, people who settled this country, were not all lily white as were settlers in Australia, which was primarily settled by convicts and outcasts. Just think, Mitt Romney received four deferments during the Vietnam War to pass out Mormon leaflets in France and other areas. He chose to serve the church rather than his country, and hes still is doing so. We have troops trying to settle a countrys internal affairs, as are missionaries trying to change other countrys religious beliefs to their way of thinking. Why cant we respect each countrys way of life and religion? We have within our own borders, internal political disagreements and religious beliefs. And, sometimes there is violence to solve the differences. Frankly, its those who want the most influence, causing all the trouble, political or religious. Certainly there is genocide in many countries, and when asked for our help we should give it. The key word is asked. We, but not me, condone our interjecLETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 tion into other countries political and religious beliefs, but when the president of Israel tries to influence the American people, to have them elect his favorite candidate, we take umbrage with it. Maybe going back to the isolationist way of life, may be the best way. For those people, who havent been in the service, during a war, they probably dont know what its like to see the dead and wounded, or have a mans head come off in your hands. Its horrible, and I wouldnt want anyone to have to go through it. Theres one group of people who should be honored to high heaven, and its our fighting men and women. They are the best. Notice I said fighting men and women, not 20 year retirees who served all their time only during peacetime to get a retirement check. But, and Ill close with this. If George W. Bush hadnt lied to the world, and over reacted to 9/11, there would be thousands of men and women, from many countries around the world, who would still be alive today. Those who have lost their lives in Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas, and the four brave Embassy people, a couple weeks ago in Libya are a waste. War begets war. Peace begets peace. I guess on a political note, President Obama is trying to close these wars, not extend them. We have had a drawdown and theres more to come by 2014. Bill Ford Ocala Hype, hysterics in the electionMitt Romney is attempting to campaign for the presidency by telling us what is wrong in our country and what he would do to fix it. The various media sources are telling us that everything that Romney has said or done since he started his campaign is wrong. The Democrats are telling us that everything that Romney has said or done since the day he was born has been wrong. The Democratic candidates are fault free Barack Obama and his shadow Bill Clinton. Romney is a threat to the political forces inside the D.C. beltway that currently control our country. A new presidential team, dedicated to our founders basic principles, could disrupt their carefully crafted and very profitable methods of operations.

However, did you know that when an emergency vehicle displaying visual signals is parked on a road with two or more lanes traveling in the direction of the emergency vehicle, all other vehicles must move out of the lane closest to the emergency vehicle? If such lane change cannot be safely accomplished, or if there is only a single lane, drivers must slow to a speed of 20 miles per hour below the posted speed limit if the speed limit is 25 Passport Show ticket sales to start on Oct. 8 O AK RUN C W Carol AnnWheeler miles per hour or greater, or to 5 miles per hour if the speed limit is 20 miles per hour or less. The same rules apply to wreckers with amber lights while making a recovery or loading. The above information was taken directly from Florida statutes. However, similar laws are in effect in almost every jurisdiction in the United States and many provinces of Canada. So be warned! When you think about it, such laws make a great deal of sense as they protect those who serve and protect us all. Oak Run TravelThe last trip to Hard Rock for 2012 for us will be on Nov. 8.

Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site)Proposing an amendment to Section 6 of Article VII and the creation of Section 32 of Article XII of the State Constitution to expand the availability of the property discount on the homesteads of veterans who became disabled as the result of a combat injury to include those who were not Florida residents when they entered the military and schedule the amendment to take effect January 1, 2013.Arguments forSupporters say this amendment will benefit older veterans who were injured in combat but did not live in Florida at the time they entered the military. They say the property tax discount can help with medical bills and may allow veterans to stay in their homes longer as they age. It might also stimulate the housing market by persuading veterans to move to Florida. Arguments againstOpponents say state and local governments face mounting budget shortfalls in part because of diminished property tax returns brought about by the collapse of the housing market. Schools and local governments need to maintain the tax base or consider cuts to public services.Should disabled veterans who move to Florida get a property tax discount?Amendment 2 relaxes the eligibility requirements for an existing property tax discount offered to disabled veterans. Currently, disabled veterans who meet the following four requirements are eligible for a property tax discount commensurate with the degree of their disability: 1) current Florida resident; 2) 65 or older; 3) disabled in combat; 4) Florida resident when they entered the military. If passed, Amendment 2 would eliminate that fourth eligibility requirement. As an example of how the current disability discount works, a veteran eligible for the discount with a 50 percent disability can claim 50 percent off the assessed value of his home. Roughly 1,200 veterans received that discount in 2010, allowing them to subtract, on average, $24,000 from their homes value before property taxes were calculated. This proposed amendment would give that same tax break to veterans, age 65 and older, who were disabled in combat but living in another state when they entered the military so long as they now Friday, September 28, 2012~ 25 www.smcitizen.com A n indicator of our cultural decline is loose use of what is left of the English language. Editorials and letters to editors about voter rejection of the tax referenda on the August primary ballot exemplified confusion about the difference between schools and education. School is an institution at which instruction is provided. Confusion occurs when we express concern about whats wrong with our schools. Most citizens care about the current state of public education. Even our least educated citizens know education is instruction which passes on knowledge, or training intended to develop skills. Knowledge and training were passed down for centuries without benefit of todays campuses, staffs, and political hierarchies. Voters didnt support the schools/education referenda on the August primary ballot because American taxpayers have caught on that the public education hierarchy is first and foremost a self-interest organization. In the not distant past education think tanks suggested children couldnt learn without balanced nutrition. School lunch programs became learning necessities. Some time later, after satisfaction that lunches were enhancing academic achievement, elite thinkers suggested the negative effects of poverty could and should be mitigated by school breakfast programs. Despite the benefits of meals and social services provided at schools, public education is in dismal condition, which is exacerbated by our weak economy and our national epidemic of dysfunctional families. We wouldnt be surprised to hear a serious suggestion from Washington that public education could be further improved by dinners at school. Three nutritious meals accompanied by after school tutoring and counwww.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, September 28, 2012 W hen it comes to television, I guess Im out of touch with mainstream America. That was proven by the Emmy Awards list. The big thing that keeps me from appreciating the winners is that I dont have any pay channels, other than sports, where I have MLB Extra Innings and the NFL Red Zone. Thats it. No HBO, no Showtime, none of those channels. A lot of things on those channels are adult material, which we dont have in our house. So Monday morning I scanned through the winners list, to count how many shows I watch that won awards. The answer was none, zilch, zero. My wife had one, the host of Dancing With the Stars, a show I dont particularly like but she watches faithfully. Admittedly, we dont watch too much network television. Most of our viewing comes from CBS. The premieres this week of Hawaii Five-O, Blue Bloods, NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles and Person of Interest are interesting to us. We also like some of the offnetwork shows such as Covert Affairs, or Rizzoli and Isles. None of those were on the winners list. So now the fall season is starting, and well try a couple of new shows and see if they are any good. My wife and I already have a discrepancy. On Monday, theres a new show called Revolution. We watched the first episode together, but now Im turning it over to her to watch. She said it reminded her of Lost, I thought it reminded me of the move Red Dawn. Either way, its all hers. Besides, Monday is football night. Enough said? ELECTRONIC RECYCLING: The city held an electronic recycling day (actually hazardous waste recycling) last Saturday. It was for city residents only. The trouble is, the city didnt notify us until after 4 p.m. on Thursday, way too late for us to get the message out. We yelled at them a little, and they have promised that the next time theyll get it to us sooner, so we can notify people. Incidentally, I took a couple of dead televisions to the site Saturday morning, and they took them readily, without asking for identification whether I lived in the city, as the news release said would be done. I had my license and a utility bill ready to prove where I lived, but it wasnt necessary. Electronic recycling is something that needs to be done. The last time the county did it, it took place at a recreation complex all the way up in Citra. Thats not very convenient for most of our readers. We hope that changes.

L ast week we told you that voting early might be the answer to avoid long lines on Election Day. The main culprit, we noted, was the choice of yes or no on the 11 proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution. When you get your ballot, youll see that the last amendment is No. 12. However, Amendment 7 was stricken from the ballot by the courts and is covered by No. 8, hence the total of 11 on the ballot. Each week, were going to add our own assessment of the amendments published that week. Amendment 1 is, in our opinion, a waste of time. If it passes, it says that Floridians cannot be forced to purchase health care, as mandated by Obamacare. However, the Supreme Court has already ruled that the mandate is constitutional, and that would supersede state law, so it doesnt really matter if this amendment passes or not. The only way that people would not be required to take part in the insurance would be to elect a Republican president and Senate, along with the House of Representatives, and then have Obamacare repealed. Some people think thats possible, but we doubt it. In our minds, a Romney win is still possible, but a change in the Senate is far more unlikely. Amendment 2 involves a tax break for veterans, giving an extra homestead exemption to disabled vets who did not live here when they joined the military. Its hard to find fault with something like this, but read carefully the part about the financial impact, and ask yourself if the state can handle any more loss of tax revenue. We think not. No one should be against helping veterans, especially disabled vets, but the question is how much we are willing to bear financially. Well stay neutral on this one, but advise you to think it over carefully. Next week well take on some more. There are other exemption requests to be covered down the road. Stay tuned.

Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED seling may yet be considered remedies for lack of parental inspiration, supervision, and literacy. Think tanks, colleges of education, and their political patrons will continue to come up with suggestions in the name of educational improvements, accompanied by appeals for additional funding as always. U.S. Department of Education, bureaucrats are working currently on a goal of common standards for all states, even though several federal laws prohibit Washington from mandating, directing, or controlling any states education agency or school curriculum. Education bureaucrats see federal laws as temporary inconveniences which interfere with their control agenda and the interests of their self-serving professional organizations. We wouldnt be surprised if the Department of Education requested authority to classify their deliberations as top secret. Is public education really so self-interested? Bill Gates, cofounder of Microsoft, who has invested $4 billion in U.S. education projects says: Most people dont realize how bad the situation has become. Weve never had a system that identifies great teaching, so we can pass on the skills to others. Educator organizations cringe at the prospect of evaluation. Should we believe Bill Gates observations and experience as a benefactor of public education or the Department of Education, which seeks to dictate all aspects of public education as quietly as possible? Mr. Gates interest is self-funded, and not self-serving. Not treason The writer of a recent letter said that the production of the video criticizing Islam was next to treason. This requires a new definition of treason and a rejection of our Bill of Rights. Then he thanked God that President Obama apologized for it and said that it was not the American way. I dont know what he apologized for or to whom. I hope that he was not apologizing for our right of free speech because that is the American way. The writer has it backward. The governments of those countries who allowed or did not prevent the murder of American citizens and the destruction of American property should apologize to us. How shameful to kill and riot because they dont like our principles. He was shocked that the president of Israel would try to intervene in our political process. Thats what we have done over history. The United States has intervened in the affairs of other countries in all kinds of circumstances. Sometimes to set up governments, other times to topple governments. We try to pick winners and losers. Dan Drake Oak RunIts time to defend AmericaAre we really ignorant enough to believe the riots by the Muslims including the killing of our ambassador were caused by a single video? That is being used as an excuse for revolts planned to occur on 9/11 by terrorists who hate America and our way of life. This was a direct slap in our face as we mourned our fellow Americans who were killed on 9/11 to let us know they do not fear our retaliation. Our embassies are considered American territory and should be defended accordingly, for an attack on them is an act of war. We certainly dont owe them an apology and should make sure we find the guilty parties and do so quickly. We should also question why we didnt have better intelligence that would have predicted such an incident. There are now pictures on the Internet of the humiliation and killing of our ambassador that if proven to be actual and truthful, should be on every front page and on every TV station throughout the USA. We should make sure our embassies are protected by our best military personnel, armed to the fullest with orders to put down any and all uprisings without hesitation.

Specifies that the amendment does not affect which health care services a health care provider is required to perform or provide; affect which health care services are permitted by law; prohibit care provided pursuant to general law relating to workers compensation; affect laws or rules in effect as of March 1, 2010; affect the terms or conditions of any health care system to the extent that those terms and conditions do not have the effect of punishing a person or an employer for paying directly for lawful health care services or a health care provider for accepting direct payment from a person or an employer for lawful health care services; or affect any general law passed by two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature, passed after the effective date of the amendment, provided such law states with specificity the public necessity justifying the exceptions from the provisions of the amendment. The amendment expressly provides that it may not be construed to prohibit negotiated provisions in insurance contracts, network agreements, or other provider agreements contractually limiting copayments, coinsurance, deductibles, or other patient charges. Arguments for: Supporters of this proposed amendment say the federal government cannot force people to purchase health insurance, and this amendment is an attempt to protect Floridians from that requirement in the federal health care act passed in 2010. They say voting for this measure would send a message that Congress overstepped its authority.Arguments against: Opponents say that despite its stated intention, this proposed amendment will not allow Floridians to opt out of the requirement that all Americans purchase health insurance. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on June 28, 2012, that the federal requirement to purchase insurance is constitutional. Amendment 1Amendment 2 Title on ballot: Health Care Services Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This would add an amendment to the state constitution that attempts to prohibit the government from requiring individuals to purchase health insurance. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you want the Florida Constitution to include a provision that prohibits the government from requiring you to purchase health insurance. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not want the Florida Constitution to include a provision that prohibits the government from requiring you to purchase health insurance.

It is difficult to estimate how many disabled veterans would qualify for the discount under the relaxed standards, but the state estimates that the tax revenues school districts and local governments would lose if Amendment 2 passes is roughly $15 million combined over the first three years. State lawmakers say the cost is worth it. This bill provides relief to our states aging combat-injured veterans, state Sen. Mike Bennett, R-Bradenton, said in a press release. Our older veterans made great sacrifices for our country, although many did not live in the Sunshine State at the time they entered the military. As they age and struggle with service-related disabilities, this bill will help alleviate their financial challenges. The measure won unanimous approval in the state Senate and House. There is no known organized opposition to the proposed amendment. As with all proposed amendments, passage requires the approval by 60 percent or more of the voters. If passed, Amendment 2 goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2013. Current LawFlorida has a long history of offering property tax breaks to its permanent residents. One of those tax breaks allows a homeowner to claim a $50,000 tax exemption on their primary residence, what is commonly known as a homesteaded property. That amount is subtracted from the assessed value of the home before property taxes are calculated, thereby reducing the tax bill. This form of tax relief is reserved for primary residences, meaning the owner must live in the home the majority of the year and not claim any other residence as a primary residence. Additionally, the state offers several property tax breaks to military veterans disabled while in the service: Veterans of any age with at least a 10 percent disability incurred while in active military service (no matter where they lived when they entered the military) can deduct $5,000 from the value of their property before taxes are calculated (in addition to the $50,000 exemption offered to all owners of homesteaded property). As mentioned earlier, disabled veterans 65 and over who were Florida residents when they entered the military can also receive a tax break equal to the percentage of their disability (in addition to the $50,000 homestead exemption and the $5,000 disability exemption for those eligible for both). And veterans with a service-related, total (100 percent) and permanent disability are eligible for total relief from all property taxes on their primary residence. As an example of how these current tax breaks might apply, a veteran with a primary residence assessed at $200,000 who was a Florida resident when he entered the military and who is 65 or older with a 50 percent disability related to combat, could claim $55,000 in exemptions and claim 50 percent off the remaining $145,000 assessed value, resulting in an assessment on that property for tax purposes of $72,500. Estimated Impact According to a Florida House of Representatives staff analysis, 1,206 veterans received the discount on property taxes equal to their combat-related disability in 2010, amounting to a combined discount of $28,749,630. On average, the discount allowed those disabled vets to subtract $23,839 from their homes value before property taxes were calculated. It is difficult to say how many disabled veterans would be eligible for the property tax discount if Amendment 2 passes and expands the law to include those who moved here from other states. According to the House of Representatives analysis, there were 77,535 veterans in Florida age 65 and older receiving compensation for service-related conditions in 2010. However, the number of veterans in this population who were 65 or older by exact disability rating percentage category, the number who were Florida residents at the time of entry into military service and the number of veterans whose compensation is the result of combat are indeterminate at this time, the staff analysis said. According to the states Revenue Estimating Conference (REC), if passed Amendment 2s estimated impact on school taxes during fiscal year 2013-14 would be a combined $1.1 million in school districts across the state, $2.3 million in fiscal year 2014-15, and $3.6 million in fiscal year 2015-16. Thats an estimate of the combined revenue school districts would not collect if the amendment passes. If passed, the impact on non-school property tax revenues is expected to be $1.3 million in fiscal year 201314, $2.6 million in 2014-15, and $4 million in 2015-16, the REC estimates. Thats an estimate of the combined revenue local government agencies that levy property taxes would not collect if the amendment passes. Friday, September 28, 2012~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, September 28, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Should the state attempt to ban governments from requiring the purchase of health insurance?Amendment 1 is an attempt to exempt Floridians from a provision in the federal health care law known as the individual mandate, which requires all Americans to have health insurance by 2014 or face financial penalties. The proposal also attempts to exempt employers and health care providers from penalties or taxes that the government might impose for failing to pay for health insurance. In part, the proposal reads, Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to prohibit laws or rules from compelling any person or employer to purchase, obtain, or otherwise provide for health care coverage. The amendments supporters say the individual mandate is an overreach of federal authority. This proposed constitutional amendment is about an individuals right to make his own health care decisions without interference from the federal government, former state Senate President Mike Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, told The New American in January 2011. It also sends a message to Washington D.C. that its one-size-fits-all approach to health care doesnt work. Opponents say the proposed amendment is more about politics than law. We should be concerned with healing, and not repealing, Rep. Joe Gibbons, D-Hallandale, told the News Service of Florida in May 2011. If Amendment 1 were to pass, its legal standing and significance remain questionable. Legal scholars mostly agree that the fate of the individual mandate rests not with the states but with the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled in June 2012 that the individual mandate is constitutional. Now that the nations highest court has ruled, the passage or defeat of Amendment 1 has no practical implications other than to send a message that a majority of Floridas voters are either for or against the individual mandate. State lawmakers voted largely along party lines in deciding to place the proposal on the ballot, with Republicans voting for and Democrats against. As with all proposed amendments, passage requires approval from 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved, Amendment 1 would take effect on Jan. 8, 2013. HistoryFollowing his election in 2008, President Obama announced his intention to establish a national health care system that provides access to health insurance for every American. In March 2010, he signed a health care act into law that, among other things, required all Americans to purchase insurance by 2014 or face a financial penalty the so-called individual mandate. Why the individual mandate? Without it, the number of premiumpaying, healthy policyholders may not reach the critical mass needed to cover the costs associated with providing care to every American.Legal Challenges The laws passage prompted a legal challenge from 26 states. Florida took a leading role. It filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Pensacola that claimed the requirement that individuals purchase health insurance or face penalties is an unconstitutional expansion of federal authority. In defending the individual mandate, the Obama administration argued that the costs associated with the uninsured affect the national economy and interstate commerce, and are therefore subject to federal regulation under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Several district courts and two federal appellate courts offered conflicting rulings on whether the federal government has a right to impose the individual mandate. The U.S. Supreme Court decided in June 2012 that the individual mandate is constitutional. Can a state nullify federal law?Now that the individual mandate has been declared constitutional by the nations highest court, do states have a right to ignore or reject that law? Under the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution, the federal government is considered the supreme law of the land when conflicts arise with states. The Supremacy Clause has been tested throughout the countrys history, and legal precedent appears to affirm the opinion of most legal scholars that passage of the proposed amendment would not allow Floridians to opt out of the individual mandate. However, passage would send a message that a majority of Florida voters are against the individual mandate and that message might become ammunition for lawmakers vowing to overturn the law.

The discussion centered on sheriffs vehicles, and he emphasized that you have to keep the deputies safe, noting that when youre chasing someone at 80 mph, the condition of tires and transmission was important.

BY WARNEFORD JOSEPH AND ENID B. JONES The speaker at the recent meeting of Marion Oaks Democratic Club was Frank Bruno, who plans to take his experience as a local public official and successful businessman to the bigger arena of the Florida Senate in District 8. He is a 40-year resident of Volusia County who has served his community in numerous leadership positions. His dedication to service is evidenced in a long and distinguished record of service such as serving as a member and the first elected chair of the Volusia County Council. For the last 25 years, Bruno has been a leader in the business community promoting the development of small businesses and economic growth overall. As a local business leader and public official, he has focused on improving the quality of life and attracting industry that would provide sustainable jobs for the people of Central Florida. He was instrumental in bringing SunRail to the area and improving transportation along the I-4 corridor. He continues to work at finding real solutions to challenges in transportation for the community. Brunos work stretches beyond Volusia County as he recently was seen hosting a public round table at the Marion County Library to address the growing concerns in our community about the future of Silver Springs and water issues affecting the region. Bringing together environmental experts and concerned citizens, he led a conversation focused on the future of the community and our responsibility to be good stewards of water for our children and their children. It was quite remarkable that he is addressing a group that is not in his district but, as he mentioned, he wants to get the word out on his commitment to addressing the concerns of Floridians as a whole. Further, Bruno devotes himself to charity and community organizations with a view to strengthening our communities, enhancing the life of disabled veterans as well as others with physical disabilities. He stressed the importance of getting out to vote, reminding us that the 30 percent turnout during the primaries is not good enough. His spoke about three main areas of focus: protecting the middle class; helping small businesses; and investing in education. On this last issue he thinks that the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) is failing our students. He also fielded questions from the audience which included concerns for upgrading the existing Ocala airport to one for commercial use, the re-opening of the Ocala railway station for passenger travel, and the provision of public bus transportation by Sun Tran for the residents of Marion Oaks to the City of Ocala. He gave clear and concise answers and promised to follow up. Judge Cochran, who is running for Supervisor of Elections, was our second speaker for the evening. He has spoken to us on a previous occasion but wanted to encourage us to be proactive in getting out to vote and support him. The next meeting will be Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. Marion Oaks Democrats hear from Bruno The countdown clock to Floridas voter registration deadline is ticking, with the deadline on Oct. 9. Thats why the League of Women Voters of Florida Education Fund has moved its already active voter registration and support campaign into even higher gear with the addition of a Voter Assistance Hotline, 1-855FL-VOTER (1-855-3586837). Hotline callers can get answers to their questions about how changes in Floridas election law affect them. They can also learn where and how to register to vote, how to check and verify their voter registration information, how to change a name or address, update their signature, find the location of their polling place, and request a vote-by-mail ballot, along with other vital registration information. Registration is the key to ensuring that all voters have the chance to make their voices heard on Election Day. Every single vote counts, said League President Deirdre Macnab. Our members throughout the state are making renewed face-to-face efforts to boost registration and compensate for lost time, and were pleased to add this Voter Assistance Hotline to supplement their efforts. Through the Voter Assistance Hotline, callers can also schedule League speakers who stand ready to provide groups and organizations with information on the amendments and issues that will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot. The Voter Assistance Hotline is just the latest addition to the Leagues growing list of resources for voters. The Leagues nonpartisan 2012 Florida Election and Voter Guide is available at public libraries and through local Leagues and other organizations in all 67 counties. Also available online for voters, www.BeReadyToVote.org, a one-stop site packed with information for registered voters and those who want to register. Voter hotline Gas line cut, evacuations neededA private contractor excavating with heavy equipment ruptured a two inch natural gas line Wednesday morning. Ocala Fire Rescue responded to the leak at 10:32 a.m. according to Fire Captain Doug Smutko. On arrival firefighters evacuated two businesses in the 4500 block of Southwest 40th Avenue. A dozen employees were evacuated from Trane and John Deere for a little more than one hour. TECO gas company responded to make repairs to the gas line and there were no injuries. Florida Governor Rick Scott has declared September 2012 as Florida Square Dance Month. In addition other states have declared their own square dance months and the US Congress has moved to make square dance the official folk dance of the United States. Square dancing can trace its roots to the earliest part of our countrys history. At this time there are square dancers all over the world taking part in this fun pastime. That means that square dancers from Ocala can dance everywhere. Even in foreign countries because all of the calls are in English. As is common, most square dance tips are alternated with round dances. The Ocala Twirlers are a new dance club that was formed out of what was the Oak Run Twirlers. We have over 60 members and we dance on Monday afternoons at Ocala West United Methodist church. We dance to music that is a mixture of traditional country western, show tunes, and recent pop music. While traditional western clothing is encouraged for some dances, lessons are taught in casual clothing. The Ocala Twirlers will be holding classes starting on Oct. 8 at 12:45 p.m. The first lesson is no cost but subsequent lessons are six dollars per person. It is recommended that you have a partner to join you in these classes. We encourage everyone to join us in this fun activity. For more information call Tom Warren at 352-237-6416, Norm Barnes at 352-873-1734 or Tony Trinchera at 352-861-9812. Square dancers at Ocala West Two road names have been chosen. They are Osceola Boulevard and Farris Bryant Avenue. Two major corridors in and around the city of Ocala were selected by the Roads of Marion County Road Name Selection Committee recently. The 31st / 32nd / 42nd / 44th / 39th corridor which runs east and west on the southern side of Ocala was given the name, Osceola Boulevard. This corridor will cross Interstate 75 with a new bridge and connect to State Road 200 at 40th Avenue. Osceola lived in Marion County and his village, Osceolas Town, was less than a half mile south of the newly named corridor. At that point on State Road 200 where Osceola Boulevard intersects, a new road will be built, and through a number of different existing fourlane roads, will travel north all the way to County Road 326. This corridor was given the name, Farris Bryant Avenue. Farris Bryant was born and raised in Ocala and became governor of Florida in 1961. As governor he saw that I-75 came through Ocala and was instrumental in getting many of our primary and secondary roads constructed.

On Saturday, Sept. 29, the Marion County Sheriffs Office, along with the Ocala and Police Department and in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), will participate in the National Pill Take Back Day. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a uniformed officer will be stationed at the following no questions asked collection sites: Marion County Sheriffs Office South Marion District Office, 8230 S.E. 165th Mulberry Lane, The Villages. Marion County Sheriffs Office Southwest District Office, 9048 S.W. State Road 200, Ocala. Ocala Police Department, 402 S. Pine Ave., Ocala. The purpose of this event is to give persons in the community who have a surplus of outdated prescription drugs; pills they dont have a prescription for; or pills they obtained illegally, an opportunity to turn them in without facing any criminal charges or repercussions. Marion County and the state of Florida have seen a significant increase in the abuse of prescription drugs and overdoses in the last few years. Many of these cases involve adolescents who obtained these medications from their parents or their home medicine cabinet. The Sheriffs Office encourages anyone who has prescription pills they would like to or need to get rid of, to take advantage of this National Pill Take Back Day to do so. Citizens can also visit www.dea.gov to enter their zip code and locate the drop-off site closest to them. More information about prescription drug abuse is also available on this site. Drop off outdated medicine Saturday Second of a series of stories based on candidates appearance at a forum at the main library recently.BY JIM CLARK Editor Candidates for sheriff spoke to the audience at a recent forum. Going first was Dan Kuhn, currently serving as undersheriff. He recently won the Republican primary. He is a former prosecutor and is a sworn officer who, as he said, has had an opportunity to study at the highest level. He was asked about the budget, and said he has the experience of discussions with the County Commission. Kuhn said the Sheriffs Office has been streamlining, and said there were no layoffs, but the workforce was cut by attrition. He said that to help with the budget a chief of staff position was eliminated, but to keep deputies they added two line-level deputies when a captain retired. The next question concerned privatization, and said that there are certain things that dont lend themselves to outsourcing. He added that you have to make sure whoever you outsource to has the same priorities. Asked about juvenile crime, he said that money is saved by housing juvenile offenders on the same property, but not the same building, as the jail. He also mentioned the WILA (work in lieu of arrest) program which only has a recidivism of 8 percent. Finally, he was asked about personal characteristics that would benefit him in the job, and he said he cares about the community. You have to have a servants heart. Running as a member of the Constitution Party is Bernie DeCastro, who has lived in the county since 1984 and runs a non-profit group that reduces crime by working with people re-entering the community. Weve got to stop that vicious cycle. Asked about the budget, he said he has special business skills he would bring to the job, and does the same thing as the Sheriffs Office on a smaller scale every year. He said that leadership and integrity were the important things on the job.

The discussion centered on sheriffs vehicles, and he emphasized that you have to keep the deputies safe, noting that when youre chasing someone at 80 mph, the condition of tires and transmission was important. He criticized the federal government, saying the federal overreach is becoming epidemic in America. Asked about the work farm, he called it a great idea, and gave the current MCSO kudos for the farm, saying it is therapeutic. He said he would try to expand it.

BY WARNEFORD JOSEPH AND ENID B. JONES The speaker at the recent meeting of Marion Oaks Democratic Club was Frank Bruno, who plans to take his experience as a local public official and successful businessman to the bigger arena of the Florida Senate in District 8. He is a 40-year resident of Volusia County who has served his community in numerous leadership positions. His dedication to service is evidenced in a long and distinguished record of service such as serving as a member and the first elected chair of the Volusia County Council. For the last 25 years, Bruno has been a leader in the business community promoting the development of small businesses and economic growth overall. As a local business leader and public official, he has focused on improving the quality of life and attracting industry that would provide sustainable jobs for the people of Central Florida. He was instrumental in bringing SunRail to the area and improving transportation along the I-4 corridor. He continues to work at finding real solutions to challenges in transportation for the community. Brunos work stretches beyond Volusia County as he recently was seen hosting a public round table at the Marion County Library to address the growing concerns in our community about the future of Silver Springs and water issues affecting the region. Bringing together environmental experts and concerned citizens, he led a conversation focused on the future of the community and our responsibility to be good stewards of water for our children and their children. It was quite remarkable that he is addressing a group that is not in his district but, as he mentioned, he wants to get the word out on his commitment to addressing the concerns of Floridians as a whole. Further, Bruno devotes himself to charity and community organizations with a view to strengthening our communities, enhancing the life of disabled veterans as well as others with physical disabilities. He stressed the importance of getting out to vote, reminding us that the 30 percent turnout during the primaries is not good enough. His spoke about three main areas of focus: protecting the middle class; helping small businesses; and investing in education. On this last issue he thinks that the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) is failing our students. He also fielded questions from the audience which included concerns for upgrading the existing Ocala airport to one for commercial use, the re-opening of the Ocala railway station for passenger travel, and the provision of public bus transportation by Sun Tran for the residents of Marion Oaks to the City of Ocala. He gave clear and concise answers and promised to follow up. Judge Cochran, who is running for Supervisor of Elections, was our second speaker for the evening. He has spoken to us on a previous occasion but wanted to encourage us to be proactive in getting out to vote and support him. The next meeting will be Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. Marion Oaks Democrats hear from Bruno The countdown clock to Floridas voter registration deadline is ticking, with the deadline on Oct. 9. Thats why the League of Women Voters of Florida Education Fund has moved its already active voter registration and support campaign into even higher gear with the addition of a Voter Assistance Hotline, 1-855FL-VOTER (1-855-3586837). Hotline callers can get answers to their questions about how changes in Floridas election law affect them. They can also learn where and how to register to vote, how to check and verify their voter registration information, how to change a name or address, update their signature, find the location of their polling place, and request a vote-by-mail ballot, along with other vital registration information. Registration is the key to ensuring that all voters have the chance to make their voices heard on Election Day. Every single vote counts, said League President Deirdre Macnab. Our members throughout the state are making renewed face-to-face efforts to boost registration and compensate for lost time, and were pleased to add this Voter Assistance Hotline to supplement their efforts. Through the Voter Assistance Hotline, callers can also schedule League speakers who stand ready to provide groups and organizations with information on the amendments and issues that will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot. The Voter Assistance Hotline is just the latest addition to the Leagues growing list of resources for voters. The Leagues nonpartisan 2012 Florida Election and Voter Guide is available at public libraries and through local Leagues and other organizations in all 67 counties. Also available online for voters, www.BeReadyToVote.org, a one-stop site packed with information for registered voters and those who want to register. Voter hotline Gas line cut, evacuations neededA private contractor excavating with heavy equipment ruptured a two inch natural gas line Wednesday morning. Ocala Fire Rescue responded to the leak at 10:32 a.m. according to Fire Captain Doug Smutko. On arrival firefighters evacuated two businesses in the 4500 block of Southwest 40th Avenue. A dozen employees were evacuated from Trane and John Deere for a little more than one hour. TECO gas company responded to make repairs to the gas line and there were no injuries. Florida Governor Rick Scott has declared September 2012 as Florida Square Dance Month. In addition other states have declared their own square dance months and the US Congress has moved to make square dance the official folk dance of the United States. Square dancing can trace its roots to the earliest part of our countrys history. At this time there are square dancers all over the world taking part in this fun pastime. That means that square dancers from Ocala can dance everywhere. Even in foreign countries because all of the calls are in English. As is common, most square dance tips are alternated with round dances. The Ocala Twirlers are a new dance club that was formed out of what was the Oak Run Twirlers. We have over 60 members and we dance on Monday afternoons at Ocala West United Methodist church. We dance to music that is a mixture of traditional country western, show tunes, and recent pop music. While traditional western clothing is encouraged for some dances, lessons are taught in casual clothing. The Ocala Twirlers will be holding classes starting on Oct. 8 at 12:45 p.m. The first lesson is no cost but subsequent lessons are six dollars per person. It is recommended that you have a partner to join you in these classes. We encourage everyone to join us in this fun activity. For more information call Tom Warren at 352-237-6416, Norm Barnes at 352-873-1734 or Tony Trinchera at 352-861-9812. Square dancers at Ocala West Two road names have been chosen. They are Osceola Boulevard and Farris Bryant Avenue. Two major corridors in and around the city of Ocala were selected by the Roads of Marion County Road Name Selection Committee recently. The 31st / 32nd / 42nd / 44th / 39th corridor which runs east and west on the southern side of Ocala was given the name, Osceola Boulevard. This corridor will cross Interstate 75 with a new bridge and connect to State Road 200 at 40th Avenue. Osceola lived in Marion County and his village, Osceolas Town, was less than a half mile south of the newly named corridor. At that point on State Road 200 where Osceola Boulevard intersects, a new road will be built, and through a number of different existing fourlane roads, will travel north all the way to County Road 326. This corridor was given the name, Farris Bryant Avenue. Farris Bryant was born and raised in Ocala and became governor of Florida in 1961. As governor he saw that I-75 came through Ocala and was instrumental in getting many of our primary and secondary roads constructed.

It is difficult to estimate how many disabled veterans would qualify for the discount under the relaxed standards, but the state estimates that the tax revenues school districts and local governments would lose if Amendment 2 passes is roughly $15 million combined over the first three years. State lawmakers say the cost is worth it. This bill provides relief to our states aging combat-injured veterans, state Sen. Mike Bennett, R-Bradenton, said in a press release. Our older veterans made great sacrifices for our country, although many did not live in the Sunshine State at the time they entered the military. As they age and struggle with service-related disabilities, this bill will help alleviate their financial challenges. The measure won unanimous approval in the state Senate and House. There is no known organized opposition to the proposed amendment. As with all proposed amendments, passage requires the approval by 60 percent or more of the voters. If passed, Amendment 2 goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2013.Current LawFlorida has a long history of offering property tax breaks to its permanent residents. One of those tax breaks allows a homeowner to claim a $50,000 tax exemption on their primary residence, what is commonly known as a homesteaded property. That amount is subtracted from the assessed value of the home before property taxes are calculated, thereby reducing the tax bill. This form of tax relief is reserved for primary residences, meaning the owner must live in the home the majority of the year and not claim any other residence as a primary residence. Additionally, the state offers several property tax breaks to military veterans disabled while in the service: Veterans of any age with at least a 10 percent disability incurred while in active military service (no matter where they lived when they entered the military) can deduct $5,000 from the value of their property before taxes are calculated (in addition to the $50,000 exemption offered to all owners of homesteaded property). As mentioned earlier, disabled veterans 65 and over who were Florida residents when they entered the military can also receive a tax break equal to the percentage of their disability (in addition to the $50,000 homestead exemption and the $5,000 disability exemption for those eligible for both). And veterans with a service-related, total (100 percent) and permanent disability are eligible for total relief from all property taxes on their primary residence. As an example of how these current tax breaks might apply, a veteran with a primary residence assessed at $200,000 who was a Florida resident when he entered the military and who is 65 or older with a 50 percent disability related to combat, could claim $55,000 in exemptions and claim 50 percent off the remaining $145,000 assessed value, resulting in an assessment on that property for tax purposes of $72,500.Estimated ImpactAccording to a Florida House of Representatives staff analysis, 1,206 veterans received the discount on property taxes equal to their combat-related disability in 2010, amounting to a combined discount of $28,749,630. On average, the discount allowed those disabled vets to subtract $23,839 from their homes value before property taxes were calculated. It is difficult to say how many disabled veterans would be eligible for the property tax discount if Amendment 2 passes and expands the law to include those who moved here from other states. According to the House of Representatives analysis, there were 77,535 veterans in Florida age 65 and older receiving compensation for service-related conditions in 2010. However, the number of veterans in this population who were 65 or older by exact disability rating percentage category, the number who were Florida residents at the time of entry into military service and the number of veterans whose compensation is the result of combat are indeterminate at this time, the staff analysis said. According to the states Revenue Estimating Conference (REC), if passed Amendment 2s estimated impact on school taxes during fiscal year 2013-14 would be a combined $1.1 million in school districts across the state, $2.3 million in fiscal year 2014-15, and $3.6 million in fiscal year 2015-16. Thats an estimate of the combined revenue school districts would not collect if the amendment passes. If passed, the impact on non-school property tax revenues is expected to be $1.3 million in fiscal year 201314, $2.6 million in 2014-15, and $4 million in 2015-16, the REC estimates. Thats an estimate of the combined revenue local government agencies that levy property taxes would not collect if the amendment passes.Friday, September 28, 2012~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, September 28, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Should the state attempt to ban governments from requiring the purchase of health insurance?Amendment 1 is an attempt to exempt Floridians from a provision in the federal health care law known as the individual mandate, which requires all Americans to have health insurance by 2014 or face financial penalties. The proposal also attempts to exempt employers and health care providers from penalties or taxes that the government might impose for failing to pay for health insurance. In part, the proposal reads, Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to prohibit laws or rules from compelling any person or employer to purchase, obtain, or otherwise provide for health care coverage. The amendments supporters say the individual mandate is an overreach of federal authority. This proposed constitutional amendment is about an individuals right to make his own health care decisions without interference from the federal government, former state Senate President Mike Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, told The New American in January 2011. It also sends a message to Washington D.C. that its one-size-fits-all approach to health care doesnt work. Opponents say the proposed amendment is more about politics than law. We should be concerned with healing, and not repealing, Rep. Joe Gibbons, D-Hallandale, told the News Service of Florida in May 2011. If Amendment 1 were to pass, its legal standing and significance remain questionable. Legal scholars mostly agree that the fate of the individual mandate rests not with the states but with the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled in June 2012 that the individual mandate is constitutional. Now that the nations highest court has ruled, the passage or defeat of Amendment 1 has no practical implications other than to send a message that a majority of Floridas voters are either for or against the individual mandate. State lawmakers voted largely along party lines in deciding to place the proposal on the ballot, with Republicans voting for and Democrats against. As with all proposed amendments, passage requires approval from 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved, Amendment 1 would take effect on Jan. 8, 2013.HistoryFollowing his election in 2008, President Obama announced his intention to establish a national health care system that provides access to health insurance for every American. In March 2010, he signed a health care act into law that, among other things, required all Americans to purchase insurance by 2014 or face a financial penalty the so-called individual mandate. Why the individual mandate? Without it, the number of premiumpaying, healthy policyholders may not reach the critical mass needed to cover the costs associated with providing care to every American.Legal Challenges The laws passage prompted a legal challenge from 26 states. Florida took a leading role. It filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Pensacola that claimed the requirement that individuals purchase health insurance or face penalties is an unconstitutional expansion of federal authority. In defending the individual mandate, the Obama administration argued that the costs associated with the uninsured affect the national economy and interstate commerce, and are therefore subject to federal regulation under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Several district courts and two federal appellate courts offered conflicting rulings on whether the federal government has a right to impose the individual mandate. The U.S. Supreme Court decided in June 2012 that the individual mandate is constitutional.Can a state nullify federal law?Now that the individual mandate has been declared constitutional by the nations highest court, do states have a right to ignore or reject that law? Under the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution, the federal government is considered the supreme law of the land when conflicts arise with states. The Supremacy Clause has been tested throughout the countrys history, and legal precedent appears to affirm the opinion of most legal scholars that passage of the proposed amendment would not allow Floridians to opt out of the individual mandate. However, passage would send a message that a majority of Florida voters are against the individual mandate and that message might become ammunition for lawmakers vowing to overturn the law.

Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site)Proposing an amendment to Section 6 of Article VII and the creation of Section 32 of Article XII of the State Constitution to expand the availability of the property discount on the homesteads of veterans who became disabled as the result of a combat injury to include those who were not Florida residents when they entered the military and schedule the amendment to take effect January 1, 2013.Arguments forSupporters say this amendment will benefit older veterans who were injured in combat but did not live in Florida at the time they entered the military. They say the property tax discount can help with medical bills and may allow veterans to stay in their homes longer as they age. It might also stimulate the housing market by persuading veterans to move to Florida.Arguments againstOpponents say state and local governments face mounting budget shortfalls in part because of diminished property tax returns brought about by the collapse of the housing market. Schools and local governments need to maintain the tax base or consider cuts to public services.Should disabled veterans who move to Florida get a property tax discount?Amendment 2 relaxes the eligibility requirements for an existing property tax discount offered to disabled veterans. Currently, disabled veterans who meet the following four requirements are eligible for a property tax discount commensurate with the degree of their disability: 1) current Florida resident; 2) 65 or older; 3) disabled in combat; 4) Florida resident when they entered the military. If passed, Amendment 2 would eliminate that fourth eligibility requirement. As an example of how the current disability discount works, a veteran eligible for the discount with a 50 percent disability can claim 50 percent off the assessed value of his home. Roughly 1,200 veterans received that discount in 2010, allowing them to subtract, on average, $24,000 from their homes value before property taxes were calculated. This proposed amendment would give that same tax break to veterans, age 65 and older, who were disabled in combat but living in another state when they entered the military so long as they now Friday, September 28, 2012~ 25 www.smcitizen.com An indicator of our cultural decline is loose use of what is left of the English language. Editorials and letters to editors about voter rejection of the tax referenda on the August primary ballot exemplified confusion about the difference between schools and education. School is an institution at which instruction is provided. Confusion occurs when we express concern about whats wrong with our schools. Most citizens care about the current state of public education. Even our least educated citizens know education is instruction which passes on knowledge, or training intended to develop skills. Knowledge and training were passed down for centuries without benefit of todays campuses, staffs, and political hierarchies. Voters didnt support the schools/education referenda on the August primary ballot because American taxpayers have caught on that the public education hierarchy is first and foremost a self-interest organization. In the not distant past education think tanks suggested children couldnt learn without balanced nutrition. School lunch programs became learning necessities. Some time later, after satisfaction that lunches were enhancing academic achievement, elite thinkers suggested the negative effects of poverty could and should be mitigated by school breakfast programs. Despite the benefits of meals and social services provided at schools, public education is in dismal condition, which is exacerbated by our weak economy and our national epidemic of dysfunctional families. We wouldnt be surprised to hear a serious suggestion from Washington that public education could be further improved by dinners at school. Three nutritious meals accompanied by after school tutoring and counwww.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 28, 2012 When it comes to television, I guess Im out of touch with mainstream America. That was proven by the Emmy Awards list. The big thing that keeps me from appreciating the winners is that I dont have any pay channels, other than sports, where I have MLB Extra Innings and the NFL Red Zone. Thats it. No HBO, no Showtime, none of those channels. A lot of things on those channels are adult material, which we dont have in our house. So Monday morning I scanned through the winners list, to count how many shows I watch that won awards. The answer was none, zilch, zero. My wife had one, the host of Dancing With the Stars, a show I dont particularly like but she watches faithfully. Admittedly, we dont watch too much network television. Most of our viewing comes from CBS. The premieres this week of Hawaii Five-O, Blue Bloods, NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles and Person of Interest are interesting to us. We also like some of the offnetwork shows such as Covert Affairs, or Rizzoli and Isles. None of those were on the winners list. So now the fall season is starting, and well try a couple of new shows and see if they are any good. My wife and I already have a discrepancy. On Monday, theres a new show called Revolution. We watched the first episode together, but now Im turning it over to her to watch. She said it reminded her of Lost, I thought it reminded me of the move Red Dawn. Either way, its all hers. Besides, Monday is football night. Enough said? ELECTRONIC RECYCLING: The city held an electronic recycling day (actually hazardous waste recycling) last Saturday. It was for city residents only. The trouble is, the city didnt notify us until after 4 p.m. on Thursday, way too late for us to get the message out. We yelled at them a little, and they have promised that the next time theyll get it to us sooner, so we can notify people. Incidentally, I took a couple of dead televisions to the site Saturday morning, and they took them readily, without asking for identification whether I lived in the city, as the news release said would be done. I had my license and a utility bill ready to prove where I lived, but it wasnt necessary. Electronic recycling is something that needs to be done. The last time the county did it, it took place at a recreation complex all the way up in Citra. Thats not very convenient for most of our readers. We hope that changes.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Last week we told you that voting early might be the answer to avoid long lines on Election Day. The main culprit, we noted, was the choice of yes or no on the 11 proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution. When you get your ballot, youll see that the last amendment is No. 12. However, Amendment 7 was stricken from the ballot by the courts and is covered by No. 8, hence the total of 11 on the ballot. Each week, were going to add our own assessment of the amendments published that week. Amendment 1 is, in our opinion, a waste of time. If it passes, it says that Floridians cannot be forced to purchase health care, as mandated by Obamacare. However, the Supreme Court has already ruled that the mandate is constitutional, and that would supersede state law, so it doesnt really matter if this amendment passes or not. The only way that people would not be required to take part in the insurance would be to elect a Republican president and Senate, along with the House of Representatives, and then have Obamacare repealed. Some people think thats possible, but we doubt it. In our minds, a Romney win is still possible, but a change in the Senate is far more unlikely. Amendment 2 involves a tax break for veterans, giving an extra homestead exemption to disabled vets who did not live here when they joined the military. Its hard to find fault with something like this, but read carefully the part about the financial impact, and ask yourself if the state can handle any more loss of tax revenue. We think not. No one should be against helping veterans, especially disabled vets, but the question is how much we are willing to bear financially. Well stay neutral on this one, but advise you to think it over carefully. Next week well take on some more. There are other exemption requests to be covered down the road. Stay tuned. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Starting to look at the amendments No clue when it comes to Emmys Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Supporting schools or supporting education? Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED seling may yet be considered remedies for lack of parental inspiration, supervision, and literacy. Think tanks, colleges of education, and their political patrons will continue to come up with suggestions in the name of educational improvements, accompanied by appeals for additional funding as always. U.S. Department of Education, bureaucrats are working currently on a goal of common standards for all states, even though several federal laws prohibit Washington from mandating, directing, or controlling any states education agency or school curriculum. Education bureaucrats see federal laws as temporary inconveniences which interfere with their control agenda and the interests of their self-serving professional organizations. We wouldnt be surprised if the Department of Education requested authority to classify their deliberations as top secret. Is public education really so self-interested? Bill Gates, cofounder of Microsoft, who has invested $4 billion in U.S. education projects says: Most people dont realize how bad the situation has become. Weve never had a system that identifies great teaching, so we can pass on the skills to others. Educator organizations cringe at the prospect of evaluation. Should we believe Bill Gates observations and experience as a benefactor of public education or the Department of Education, which seeks to dictate all aspects of public education as quietly as possible? Mr. Gates interest is self-funded, and not self-serving. Not treasonThe writer of a recent letter said that the production of the video criticizing Islam was next to treason. This requires a new definition of treason and a rejection of our Bill of Rights. Then he thanked God that President Obama apologized for it and said that it was not the American way. I dont know what he apologized for or to whom. I hope that he was not apologizing for our right of free speech because that is the American way. The writer has it backward. The governments of those countries who allowed or did not prevent the murder of American citizens and the destruction of American property should apologize to us. How shameful to kill and riot because they dont like our principles. He was shocked that the president of Israel would try to intervene in our political process. Thats what we have done over history. The United States has intervened in the affairs of other countries in all kinds of circumstances. Sometimes to set up governments, other times to topple governments. We try to pick winners and losers. Dan Drake Oak RunIts time to defend AmericaAre we really ignorant enough to believe the riots by the Muslims including the killing of our ambassador were caused by a single video? That is being used as an excuse for revolts planned to occur on 9/11 by terrorists who hate America and our way of life. This was a direct slap in our face as we mourned our fellow Americans who were killed on 9/11 to let us know they do not fear our retaliation. Our embassies are considered American territory and should be defended accordingly, for an attack on them is an act of war. We certainly dont owe them an apology and should make sure we find the guilty parties and do so quickly. We should also question why we didnt have better intelligence that would have predicted such an incident. There are now pictures on the Internet of the humiliation and killing of our ambassador that if proven to be actual and truthful, should be on every front page and on every TV station throughout the USA. We should make sure our embassies are protected by our best military personnel, armed to the fullest with orders to put down any and all uprisings without hesitation. It is my unPLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site)Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to prohibit laws or rules from compelling any person or employer to purchase, obtain, or otherwise provide for health care coverage; permit a person or an employer to purchase lawful health care services directly from a health care provider; permit a health care provider to accept direct payment from a person or an employer for lawful health care services; exempt persons, employers, and health care providers from penalties and taxes for paying directly or accepting direct payment for lawful health care services; and prohibit laws or rules from abolishing the private market for health care coverage of any lawful health care service. Specifies that the amendment does not affect which health care services a health care provider is required to perform or provide; affect which health care services are permitted by law; prohibit care provided pursuant to general law relating to workers compensation; affect laws or rules in effect as of March 1, 2010; affect the terms or conditions of any health care system to the extent that those terms and conditions do not have the effect of punishing a person or an employer for paying directly for lawful health care services or a health care provider for accepting direct payment from a person or an employer for lawful health care services; or affect any general law passed by two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature, passed after the effective date of the amendment, provided such law states with specificity the public necessity justifying the exceptions from the provisions of the amendment. The amendment expressly provides that it may not be construed to prohibit negotiated provisions in insurance contracts, network agreements, or other provider agreements contractually limiting copayments, coinsurance, deductibles, or other patient charges.Arguments for: Supporters of this proposed amendment say the federal government cannot force people to purchase health insurance, and this amendment is an attempt to protect Floridians from that requirement in the federal health care act passed in 2010. They say voting for this measure would send a message that Congress overstepped its authority.Arguments against: Opponents say that despite its stated intention, this proposed amendment will not allow Floridians to opt out of the requirement that all Americans purchase health insurance. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on June 28, 2012, that the federal requirement to purchase insurance is constitutional. Amendment 1Amendment 2 Title on ballot: Health Care Services Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This would add an amendment to the state constitution that attempts to prohibit the government from requiring individuals to purchase health insurance. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you want the Florida Constitution to include a provision that prohibits the government from requiring you to purchase health insurance. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not want the Florida Constitution to include a provision that prohibits the government from requiring you to purchase health insurance. PLEASESEEAMENDMENT 1, PAGE26 Title on Ballot: Veterans Disabled Due To Combat Injury; Homestead Property Tax Discount Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would allow certain disabled veterans, who were not Florida residents prior to entering military service, to qualify for a discount on their property taxes. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you want the state to give a property tax discount to disabled veterans who moved to Florida after entering the military. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not want to extend the tax discount to disabled veterans who moved to Florida after entering the military.

You dont take the teeth out of the tiger! I suggest it is time to pull our troops and embassies out of these Mideast countries and let them fight it out among themselves as they have throughout history. The only true ally we have there is Israel and I wouldnt spend another dime on foreign aid to any of the others. It is shocking how much money we give in foreign aid to countries who admit they dont even like us. They certainly are not worth one more American life. This is not about political party, this is about our recognizing that America is under attack and their stated goal is to bankrupt us, destroying our financial system. In other words, they plan to destroy our American way of life. What should be our greatest concern in the November elections: Who best wants to preserve our American way of Life? You know the answer! Wayne Rackley OcalaMideast letterOn Sept. 21 there was an article titled Destabilized Mideast. At first I thought it was an article supporting the Republican ticket, but soon realized, whether the writer knew it or not, he was admonishing President Bush for going to war with Iraq, through his, lying, cheating and irresponsible ways with the lives of our service men and women. But, after reading the whole article I agree to a point. Whenever anyone writes that Sadam Hussein was a stabilizing force in the Middle East, they forget the hundreds of thousands of his own people hed had killed. As Ive said, we were in Iraq because of Bush, plus hes responsible for the fallout into Afghanistan and Pakistan and I might say the whole Muslim world. When you add to that, the unstable state of Israel, weve really got a can of worms. I wont address the goings on in Libya, Egypt, and Syria or the other 30 countries weve incited to riots. One must understand its not a problem precipitated by President Obama, just the opposite. He wants to be out of Afghanistan within two years, but Romney wants to stay longer. Theres too many unstable people, political and otherwise, in this country who can do us damage. What people dont realize is, the great majority of wars the world has ever known have been religious wars. In many respects, thats what were engaged in now. Study your history and you will understand. Now, we and other nations, are trying to bring Democracy, to countries, we feel are disadvantaged. We cant, and shouldnt force our way of life on anyone. So why do it. We fail to realize there are two methods weve been using to try and change other countries way of life. One through a political, military process and the other is through the religious process. Both are wrong. We must remember, people who settled this country, were not all lily white as were settlers in Australia, which was primarily settled by convicts and outcasts. Just think, Mitt Romney received four deferments during the Vietnam War to pass out Mormon leaflets in France and other areas. He chose to serve the church rather than his country, and hes still is doing so. We have troops trying to settle a countrys internal affairs, as are missionaries trying to change other countrys religious beliefs to their way of thinking. Why cant we respect each countrys way of life and religion? We have within our own borders, internal political disagreements and religious beliefs. And, sometimes there is violence to solve the differences. Frankly, its those who want the most influence, causing all the trouble, political or religious. Certainly there is genocide in many countries, and when asked for our help we should give it. The key word is asked. We, but not me, condone our interjecLETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 tion into other countries political and religious beliefs, but when the president of Israel tries to influence the American people, to have them elect his favorite candidate, we take umbrage with it. Maybe going back to the isolationist way of life, may be the best way. For those people, who havent been in the service, during a war, they probably dont know what its like to see the dead and wounded, or have a mans head come off in your hands. Its horrible, and I wouldnt want anyone to have to go through it. Theres one group of people who should be honored to high heaven, and its our fighting men and women. They are the best. Notice I said fighting men and women, not 20 year retirees who served all their time only during peacetime to get a retirement check. But, and Ill close with this. If George W. Bush hadnt lied to the world, and over reacted to 9/11, there would be thousands of men and women, from many countries around the world, who would still be alive today. Those who have lost their lives in Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas, and the four brave Embassy people, a couple weeks ago in Libya are a waste. War begets war. Peace begets peace. I guess on a political note, President Obama is trying to close these wars, not extend them. We have had a drawdown and theres more to come by 2014. Bill Ford OcalaHype, hysterics in the electionMitt Romney is attempting to campaign for the presidency by telling us what is wrong in our country and what he would do to fix it. The various media sources are telling us that everything that Romney has said or done since he started his campaign is wrong. The Democrats are telling us that everything that Romney has said or done since the day he was born has been wrong. The Democratic candidates are fault free Barack Obama and his shadow Bill Clinton. Romney is a threat to the political forces inside the D.C. beltway that currently control our country.

However, did you know that when an emergency vehicle displaying visual signals is parked on a road with two or more lanes traveling in the direction of the emergency vehicle, all other vehicles must move out of the lane closest to the emergency vehicle? If such lane change cannot be safely accomplished, or if there is only a single lane, drivers must slow to a speed of 20 miles per hour below the posted speed limit if the speed limit is 25 Passport Show ticket sales to start on Oct. 8 OAK RUN C WCarol AnnWheeler miles per hour or greater, or to 5 miles per hour if the speed limit is 20 miles per hour or less.

Tomorrow is National Museum Day. In an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine, participating museums across the country provide free entry to anyone holding a Smithsonian Museum Day Ticket. Our own Pun Alley provides a preview of the holiday with some amusing museum stories.Dry bonesTourists in the Chicago Museum of Natural History marvel at the dinosaur bones. One day one of them asked the guard, Can you tell me how old the dinosaur bones are? The guard replied, They are 3 million, four years, and six months old. Thats an awfully exact number, the tourist said. How do you know their age so precisely? The guard answered, Well, the dinosaur bones were three million years old when I started working here, and that was four and a half years ago. Nearby, the Chicago History Museum displays Hugh Hefners little black book. In the early part of the book there are only addresses and no phone numbers because it was before phones were invented.More bonesTwo women archeologists in Mexico were excavating an ancient Mayan burial ground, looking for some remains to take back to their museum. Unfortunately, everything they ran across was badly decomposed. One of them said, We dont seem to be having much luck. The other replied, Keep on digging. A good Mayan is hard to find.Ancient pawnbrokerSome ancient writings were found in a Turkey museum about King Ozymandias of Assyria. He was running low on cash after years of war with the Hittites. His last great possession was the Star of the Euphrates, the most valuable diamond in the ancient world. Desperate, he went to Croesus, the pawnbroker, to ask for a loan. Croesus said, Ill give you 100,000 dinars for it. But I paid a million dinars for it, the King protested. Dont you know who I am? I am the king! Croesus replied, When you wish to pawn a star, makes no difference who you are.ShortsA town in Austria opened a new museum dedicated to failed inventions. Or as Microsoft reported it, Hey! Someone just ordered a Zune. Theres a Hall Of Fame to honor outstanding women soldiers. Its a WACs Museum At the art museum a kid said to his mother, Look, mamma, they copied this painting from the calendar we have in our kitchen. I was enamored with the famous Paris art museum. It was Louvre at first site. Many a time the renowned artist had to paint on an empty stomach; he couldnt afford a canvas. Biologists studying the evolution of cats have been searching for the missing Lynx. Once there were two mice that lived in a museum. One evening after the museum had closed; the first mouse crawled into a huge suit of armor. Before he knew it, he was lost. Help! he shouted to his friend, Help me make it though the knight.Smoke gets in your eyesYears ago a Newberry farmer had a tractor museum. Every time one broke down he kept it. He even bought used tractors from other farmers and kept them in a large barn. When he retired he decided to sell them to an Atlanta businessman who had replied to his advertisement. They met in a local smoke-filled tavern to negotiate. The businessman asked, Could go somewhere else? Its hard to concentrate with this much smoke. Theres no need for that, said the farmer, watch this! He then took a deep, deep breath, sucking in all the smoke in the room. Then he leaned over to the partially open window and blew it all out into the night. Hey, how did you do that? gasped the businessman. Oh, it was nothing; you see, Im an ex-tractor fan.Mummys demiseAn archaeologist digging in the Negev Desert in Israel came upon a casket containing a mummy. After examining it, he called the curator of a prestigious natural-history museum. Ive just discovered a 3,000 year-old mummy of a man who died of heart failure! the scientist exclaimed. To which the curator replied, Bring him in. Well check it out. Later, the amazed curator called the archaeologist. You were right about the mummys age and cause of death. How in the world did you know? Easy. There was a note in his hand that said, ,000 Shekels on Goliath.

Friday, September 28, 2012~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, September 28, 2012 www.smcitizen.com special interests groups has destroyed our governments responsibility to provide protection and encouragement for our free enterprise system. Competition is supposed to be encouraged. We need more water and new energy sources. However the carbon based fuel sources, with their freedom to set their own prices, would wreak havoc on the economy at the very discussion on building new hydroelectric dams. A new president and a new cabinet that is more concerned with everyone and not a selected few could make a difference. A new attorney general who would enforce existing laws could threaten the freedom, fortune and fame of congressional members, financial leaders, bankers, lobbyists and hedge fund managers. The threat of accountability under a law is a great deterrent to violation of the public trust. A functional government with fiscal control and equal opportunities and responsibilities for all citizens could be ours. Do not be confused by the hype and hysterics from the media for their favored Democratic candidates. The only thing thats too big to fail in this country is this country. A heavy tax load on our next two generations has already been created. We must insure this debt does not increase, that we pay our fair share, and our heirs have the means to meet their responsibilities. Get prepared and vote. Our country and our way of life are at stake. Bill Farthing, OcalaPigs lifeThe TV news showed a clip of a pig saving a goat form drowning. And we humans keep devising ways to kill our fellow man, even to the extent of killing ourselves to do it. Hey people! Is there a message here? If you have eyes to see, I hope you have heart to hear.

HEART FULL OF LIES By Ann RuleIn this 2003 true-crime novel accused murderess Liysa Northon is described by friends and family as sweet and charming, a charm she could apparently turn on and off like a toggle switch. Others found her rude and deceptive and were baffled by her success with so many men of quality, all the more perplexing because photos reveal a somewhat mousy looking, skinny young woman given to wearing bikinis and showing up even at semi-formal functions in bare feet. Never at a loss for male admirers, she used men as stepping stones in her three marriages. Liysa always had to have a man in her life, and it wouldnt be long before she began another romance. In truth, her liaisons tended to overlap. She rarely leapt blindly into single life, as she had invariably chosen the next man. Liysa was always drawn to men of a certain physical type. She liked her men a foot taller than she, lean and muscular and usually blond and blue eyed. Early in her life Liysa fantasized about idyllic relationships which no ordinary man could live up to. Thus, a first marriage ended quickly in disappointment, the second providing her with a career as a surf photographer, thanks to the mentoring of her famous photographer husband, Nick Mattson, who also gave her a son, Papako. The allure of third husband, Chris Northon, was surely his elusiveness. A happy bachelor at 40, Chris was not tempted to settle down. Liysa, however, dazzled him as no woman ever had. She used their fantastic sex life and seeming compatibility as a hostage to marriage. When Chris caved in to her ultimatum, close friends were stunned. Although the marriage was doomed from the start, it did produce a son for Chris who surprised even himself by instantly becoming an adoring, doting father. What would have been a glamorous, adventuresome life to a normal woman beautiful homes in Hawaii and Oregon and plenty of exciting travelfailed to satisfy Liysa. In a cold and calculating plan she posed for a year as a battered woman married to a violent man before shooting Chris on a camping trip so bizarre it raised many eyebrows. Even so, Liysa was coolly confident that a jury would buy her tearful self-defense. And she might have pulled it off but for a discovered hard drive she thought had been destroyed.

The quiet; humble; good natured and intelligent man would have appeared quite ordinary to most people. The truth of the matter was that Gary was anything but ordinary. In 1943, he enlisted in the U.S. Army at the age of 20. He was a member of the 222nd Infantry Regiment of the highly decorated Rainbow Division. During his tour of duty, he fought in the Battle of the Bulge and fought his way across France into Germany toward the final victory over the Nazis. During that final push, Easy Company, of which Gary was a member, liberated Dachau Concentration Camp. Any student of history or anyone who has knowledge of the holocaust can only imagine the horrors he witnessed at that time. He joined the Army as a buck private; when he was discharged in 1946, he had attained the rank of First Sergeant E-7. He was awarded two Battle Stars; the Combat Infantry Badge; and medals and awards too numerous to mention. Then 1951 came along and the Army recalled Gary. They offered him a chance to attend Officer Candidate School which he agreed to. He was commissioned a 2nd lieutenant in 1951 and spent the next 19 years serving in the Army. When he was discharged in 1970, he held the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and had racked up several over seas tours including one as a military adviser in Thailand during the Vietnam War. For 39 years, Gary was happily married to Virginia. They shared two children from his previous marriage; a son Thom and daughter Teri. Teri was a successful business woman with many awards and recognized as Business Woman of the Year. Regrettably she passed away a few years ago. Following in his Fathers footsteps, Thom served in the U.S. Army for 30 years and retired as a Colonel. In High School, Gary was a champion roller skater and later his interests moved to stamp and coin collecting and a passion for model railroads. His son Thom shares that love of model trains. Lt. Col. Tuckey was a part of what has been called, The Greatest Generation. He was also a charter member of the Cherrywood Veterans Club. Isnt it ironic how we as younger Americans view people? As we watch these members of the Greatest Generation, today many of whom are barely able to navigate through lifes simplest chores, we somehow think they were always like that. Its hard for us to imagine that at one time they were young; vigorous; daring and even handsome. It is important for us to recognize their dauntless courage; heroic sacrifices; devoted patriotism and quiet humility. We owe so much to the men and women of that generation and they are passing by the hundreds each day. When they leave us, we mourn not only the loss of the individual; but the loss of part of our history. Will we not forget Gary Tuckey; we will not forget what he did; what he stood for and what he accomplished. Nor will we forget the thousands like him who left our world a better place because they lived in it. Salute, Gary; and thank you.From Your ReporterYour suggestions and comments are always welcome. Feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Ijust realized that summer is now over. Where in the world did it go? In fact, that is a very good question. Where does the summer go when it leaves? Is there some place that summer, winter, spring and fall go to chill out? When they get there, what in the world are they doing? Someone suggested, and I will not divulge any names only to say they live in the same residence I do, that as a person gets older time goes faster. I absolutely resemble that comment. This past week I finally adjusted myself to my summertime schedule. I do not know about anybody else, but it takes me a long time to get into a new schedule. While I am thinking about it, who in the world invented these seasons? Why didnt they let a good thing go? I would much have preferred that we simply divide our time by day or night. If it is dark, for example, it has to be night. And, if the sun is up and it is shining and bright, it must be day. I could live with something like that. At least I would know what time it really was. I was actually wallowing in a hopeless spirit of despondency. What is a person to do? Then something rather strange happened. One of my friends was playing football and his first game was on a Saturday morning. I thought maybe the distraction might cheer me up a little bit and encourage me to keep on keeping on. I cannot remember the last time I was at a football game. Of course that does not mean too much, I cannot remember what I had for lunch yesterday. It was good to get into a different venue, and air out my soul. Then it hit me. No, not the football, although that might have helped to a certain degree. But a thought hit me, which is just about as rare as being hit by a football at a football game. I had just gotten into the spirit of watching the game when all of a sudden I heard a whistle and a coach yelled, Timeout. At that moment everything stopped. I looked at the clock on the scoreboard and it had stopped. I had forgotten about this little quirk in football. The clock did not start and the game did not commence until the coach yelled, play ball. Or something to that effect. That got me thinking. If they can do that for football, why cant we do that for life? After all, life is far more important than a football game. Who is that coach that yells, Timeout, and everybody stops? What kind of authority does he have? We need to bring this kind of thinking into life in general. It seems to me that everything in life is thought out in great detail except actually living life. Football has been well thought out and is composed of rules and regulations. Baseball the same. Hockey Well maybe not so much hockey. Most games are well thought out, have rules to live by, and if something isnt going the way it is supposed to go, the coach has the privilege of yelling Timeout. How many times could I have used this little rule in my life? Wouldnt it be nice to stop life when you have made an inappropriate remark, maybe you said something to your wife that came out the wrong side of your mouth. I have done that many a times. I think it would be rather nice if when I realize what I have just said, to be able to yell Timeout. Then do it over again. The other day one of my checks from my checking account bounced. That would have been a perfect time to yell timeout and redo the whole thing. There are so many things in life that could benefit from this one little thing called timeout. I suggest that we began implementing this into our daily life. After all, our daily life is much more important than a football game, a hockey game, or a baseball game. I think whenever something goes awry we should have the privilege to stop it right in its tracks and do it over again. It does not matter how many times we have to do it over again, we continue doing it over until we get it right. It would make life more exciting if I knew that if I made a mistake I could call Timeout, do a do-over, and make everything right. I think we need to have a very stern conversation with good old Father Time. He is so much a stickler for time marching on. But sometimes you get tired of marching and need to sit down and take a breather. Then sometimes, you need to change the direction in which you are marching. It is not so bad the time marches on but when it needs to turn around and march the other way that is a completely different story. In thinking further along this line, I discovered God already has a Timeout plan. I found it in 1 John 1:9 (KJV), If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. With this in mind, I certainly want to take full advantage of Gods Timeout plan.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Marion County represents a one percent microcosm of our countrys population with its citizenry reflecting not only the ethnic complexion of the old South but also the diversity introduced by streams of new residents of European, Caribbean, Latin American, African and Asian background They include Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and Bahai among others who are so enriching our civic life. While The Interfaith Alliance strongly supports first amendment rights of religious freedom and expression for all we also wish to address the distinction between mere tolerance of differences and the progressive strengthening and acceptance of the rights of all segments of our society during the history of our young nation, according to Rev. Dr. Harold McSwain, Jr, pastor of the host church who will moderate. Panel participants include the Rev. Edward Bland, pastor of the Greater Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church; Larry Collins, member of the Islamic Center of Ocala and vice president of The Interfaith Alliance; Judge Sandra Edwards-Stephens of the Fifth Circuit Court; Barbara Fitos, executive director of The Community Foundation; Rabbi Zeev Harari of Temple Beth Shalom; and Rev.

We are a small organization dedicated to helping animals in all of Marion and a few surrounding counties. Most of our members are residents of OTOW but we are trying to reach out to others in order to expand our membership. To this effort, we have changed our meeting location. We are meeting in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks (formerly PAB Bank). An elevator in the lobby takes you directly there (no stairs involved!). The meeting time is 1 p.m. on the 3rd Thursday of the month, September through June. If you are interested and need directions or just have a question, call 3620985. Our hands-on projects include providing pet food for many Meals On Wheels recipients. Every other week, we fill plastic baggies with dog and cat food. The number fluctuates but currently numbers about 100 individual bags. You can contribute in this effort by donating cat and dog food (there is a container near customer service in Winn Dixie) or sending a monetary donation to 8501-B S.W. 93rd Lane, Ocala, Fl, 34481. We are also a point of contact for animals that have been lost or found (especially in the Southwest 200 corridor). If an owner cant be located, we try to get them adopted. For this to work, we are in constant need of volunteer foster homes. You may have seen last months column on the cats that we have who need new homes. Two have been adopted but the others are still available. To find out more about them, call Arlene at 352-875-9761. If you dont want to adopt one right now, maybe you could foster one until we find a permanent home for it. If youd rather foster a dog, or adopt one, call us and well send you an application. We dont have any dogs right now but that can change in a minute. Some people have to surrender their pets when they move and we need people to foster while we advertise for a new forever home. Our SPCA phone # is 352-362-0985, and you can find us on Facebook at Marion County FL SPCA. One of our most rewarding projects is working in conjunction with local veterinary offices to offset the cost of medical care for injured pets whose owners are low on funds. Since we dont have a shelter, we make a point of supporting the local animal organizations that do. We received a very generous donation last year so we have been able to do more. We are trying to help those who dont have sources of funding except for donations. In the last year, we have helped several horse rescue agencies, a wildlife rescue, a bird sanctuary (OWLS); contributed to vet bills for local dog and cat rescues; helped support the on-going spay/neuter program for feral cats; gave money to Dr. Stoothoffs project to provide food and vet care to animals of the homeless; helped the county animal shelter improve their cat holding facility; and helped several programs that provide service dogs for veterans. You may have seen us at one of our book sales in front of Winn Dixie. Well be having another one as soon as the weather cools off a little! Stop by and say Hello and pick up one of our flyers. Or come to our next meeting Oct. 18, to find out what you can do to help us help the animals!

This lovingly created afghan will be raffled off at the October craft show to be held at the Clubhouse. Members are selling advanced raffle tickets for just $1 each which is a real bargain considering the many hours were spent to complete it. Proceeds from the raffle will go to the Devereux Kids of Ocala; a wonderful organization that assists underprivileged families and children with help in various ways. We support them also by donating many hand made items which include sweaters; hats; crocheted and knitted dolls and animals; afghans; shawls; etc. Some of the toys can be seen on Page 1 displayed by two of our members; Sue Anderson and Sue Larsen. A very big thank you is extended to those who have donated yarn for our charity projects this past month; Bob Goodis and Karen Zacharias and a few others who wish to remain anonymous. These materials are already works in progress. We invite community members who would enjoy working and socializing with our busy group to join us on Friday afternoons from 1 to 3 p.m. in the clubhouse library/card room. Any donations will be gratefully accepted. Just drop off materials at the office any time or come to our meeting so we may meet you and thank you in person.

On Television she has appeared on Geraldo and ABCs 20/20; Rolando and the Montel Williams show to mention just a few. In addition, Rene was the first comedienne to perform at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for our troops. According to her Web page, she can roar like a lion and purr like a pussycat; some times at the same time. She occasionally interacts with the audience inviting questions but theres no telling what kind of answers will be given. What is for sure, is that Rene it is her endearing, unique and quick comedic wit that brings audiences back time and again begging for more.

At the end of the three game series, the pins are totaled and that money goes into the Veterans Club. For example, if a person pledges a penny a pin and the bowler they sponsored bowls 300 for three games; the pledge would be $3. If they pledge 2 cents per pin, the pledge would be $6 and so on. Some people prefer to pledge a flat rate such as $5 or $10 or more. With a flat rate, the pledge is what it is regardless of the number of pins scored by the individual bowler.

Friday, September 28, 2012~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, September 28, 2012 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISE HERE CALL TOM OR SUSIE AT 854-3986 Our members have been extremely busy with a group effort to complete this beautiful 84 by 54 hand crocheted afghan. This lovingly created afghan will be raffled off at the October craft show to be held at the Clubhouse. Members are selling advanced raffle tickets for just $1 each which is a real bargain considering the many hours were spent to complete it. Proceeds from the raffle will go to the Devereux Kids of Ocala; a wonderful organization that assists underprivileged families and children with help in various ways. We support them also by donating many hand made items which include sweaters; hats; crocheted and knitted dolls and animals; afghans; shawls; etc. Some of the toys can be seen on Page 1 displayed by two of our members; Sue Anderson and Sue Larsen. A very big thank you is extended to those who have donated yarn for our charity projects this past month; Bob Goodis and Karen Zacharias and a few others who wish to remain anonymous. These materials are already works in progress. We invite community members who would enjoy working and socializing with our busy group to join us on Friday afternoons from 1 to 3 p.m. in the clubhouse library/card room. Any donations will be gratefully accepted. Just drop off materials at the office any time or come to our meeting so we may meet you and thank you in person.

At the end of the three game series, the pins are totaled and that money goes into the Veterans Club. For example, if a person pledges a penny a pin and the bowler they sponsored bowls 300 for three games; the pledge would be $3. If they pledge 2 cents per pin, the pledge would be $6 and so on. Some people prefer to pledge a flat rate such as $5 or $10 or more. With a flat rate, the pledge is what it is regardless of the number of pins scored by the individual bowler. Sponsors can be corporate or individual. If you have a business, for as little as $25 dollars, your logo will be displayed at the bowling alley and at the clubhouse for the reception.

The Mishkan Congregation meets at 6675 SE Maricamp Rd, Ocala, 352-687-4434. RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 The SPCA needs more members in order to continue its mission. We are a small organization dedicated to helping animals in all of Marion and a few surrounding counties. Most of our members are residents of OTOW but we are trying to reach out to others in order to expand our membership. To this effort, we have changed our meeting location. We are meeting in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks (formerly PAB Bank). An elevator in the lobby takes you directly there (no stairs involved!). The meeting time is 1 p.m. on the 3rd Thursday of the month, September through June. If you are interested and need directions or just have a question, call 3620985. Our hands-on projects include providing pet food for many Meals On Wheels recipients. Every other week, we fill plastic baggies with dog and cat food. The number fluctuates but currently numbers about 100 individual bags. You can contribute in this effort by donating cat and dog food (there is a container near customer service in Winn Dixie) or sending a monetary donation to 8501-B S.W. 93rd Lane, Ocala, Fl, 34481. We are also a point of contact for animals that have been lost or found (especially in the Southwest 200 corridor). If an owner cant be located, we try to get them adopted. For this to work, we are in constant need of volunteer foster homes. You may have seen last months column on the cats that we have who need new homes. Two have been adopted but the others are still available. To find out more about them, call Arlene at 352-875-9761. If you dont want to adopt one right now, maybe you could foster one until we find a permanent home for it. If youd rather foster a dog, or adopt one, call us and well send you an application. We dont have any dogs right now but that can change in a minute. Some people have to surrender their pets when they move and we need people to foster while we advertise for a new forever home. Our SPCA phone # is 352-362-0985, and you can find us on Facebook at Marion County FL SPCA. One of our most rewarding projects is working in conjunction with local veterinary offices to offset the cost of medical care for injured pets whose owners are low on funds. Since we dont have a shelter, we make a point of supporting the local animal organizations that do. We received a very generous donation last year so we have been able to do more. We are trying to help those who dont have sources of funding except for donations. In the last year, we have helped several horse rescue agencies, a wildlife rescue, a bird sanctuary (OWLS); contributed to vet bills for local dog and cat rescues; helped support the on-going spay/neuter program for feral cats; gave money to Dr. Stoothoffs project to provide food and vet care to animals of the homeless; helped the county animal shelter improve their cat holding facility; and helped several programs that provide service dogs for veterans. You may have seen us at one of our book sales in front of Winn Dixie. Well be having another one as soon as the weather cools off a little! Stop by and say Hello and pick up one of our flyers. Or come to our next meeting Oct. 18, to find out what you can do to help us help the animals!

The quiet; humble; good natured and intelligent man would have appeared quite ordinary to most people. The truth of the matter was that Gary was anything but ordinary. In 1943, he enlisted in the U.S. Army at the age of 20. He was a member of the 222nd Infantry Regiment of the highly decorated Rainbow Division. During his tour of duty, he fought in the Battle of the Bulge and fought his way across France into Germany toward the final victory over the Nazis. During that final push, Easy Company, of which Gary was a member, liberated Dachau Concentration Camp. Any student of history or anyone who has knowledge of the holocaust can only imagine the horrors he witnessed at that time. He joined the Army as a buck private; when he was discharged in 1946, he had attained the rank of First Sergeant E-7. He was awarded two Battle Stars; the Combat Infantry Badge; and medals and awards too numerous to mention. Then 1951 came along and the Army recalled Gary. They offered him a chance to attend Officer Candidate School which he agreed to. He was commissioned a 2nd lieutenant in 1951 and spent the next 19 years serving in the Army. When he was discharged in 1970, he held the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and had racked up several over seas tours including one as a military adviser in Thailand during the Vietnam War. For 39 years, Gary was happily married to Virginia. They shared two children from his previous marriage; a son Thom and daughter Teri. Teri was a successful business woman with many awards and recognized as Business Woman of the Year. Regrettably she passed away a few years ago. Following in his Fathers footsteps, Thom served in the U.S. Army for 30 years and retired as a Colonel. In High School, Gary was a champion roller skater and later his interests moved to stamp and coin collecting and a passion for model railroads. His son Thom shares that love of model trains. Lt. Col. Tuckey was a part of what has been called, The Greatest Generation. He was also a charter member of the Cherrywood Veterans Club. Isnt it ironic how we as younger Americans view people? As we watch these members of the Greatest Generation, today many of whom are barely able to navigate through lifes simplest chores, we somehow think they were always like that. Its hard for us to imagine that at one time they were young; vigorous; daring and even handsome. It is important for us to recognize their dauntless courage; heroic sacrifices; devoted patriotism and quiet humility. We owe so much to the men and women of that generation and they are passing by the hundreds each day. When they leave us, we mourn not only the loss of the individual; but the loss of part of our history. Will we not forget Gary Tuckey; we will not forget what he did; what he stood for and what he accomplished. Nor will we forget the thousands like him who left our world a better place because they lived in it. Salute, Gary; and thank you.From Your ReporterYour suggestions and comments are always welcome. Feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Ijust realized that summer is now over. Where in the world did it go? In fact, that is a very good question. Where does the summer go when it leaves? Is there some place that summer, winter, spring and fall go to chill out? When they get there, what in the world are they doing? Someone suggested, and I will not divulge any names only to say they live in the same residence I do, that as a person gets older time goes faster. I absolutely resemble that comment. This past week I finally adjusted myself to my summertime schedule. I do not know about anybody else, but it takes me a long time to get into a new schedule. While I am thinking about it, who in the world invented these seasons? Why didnt they let a good thing go? I would much have preferred that we simply divide our time by day or night. If it is dark, for example, it has to be night. And, if the sun is up and it is shining and bright, it must be day. I could live with something like that. At least I would know what time it really was. I was actually wallowing in a hopeless spirit of despondency. What is a person to do? Then something rather strange happened. One of my friends was playing football and his first game was on a Saturday morning. I thought maybe the distraction might cheer me up a little bit and encourage me to keep on keeping on. I cannot remember the last time I was at a football game. Of course that does not mean too much, I cannot remember what I had for lunch yesterday. It was good to get into a different venue, and air out my soul. Then it hit me. No, not the football, although that might have helped to a certain degree. But a thought hit me, which is just about as rare as being hit by a football at a football game. I had just gotten into the spirit of watching the game when all of a sudden I heard a whistle and a coach yelled, Timeout. At that moment everything stopped. I looked at the clock on the scoreboard and it had stopped. I had forgotten about this little quirk in football. The clock did not start and the game did not commence until the coach yelled, play ball. Or something to that effect. That got me thinking. If they can do that for football, why cant we do that for life? After all, life is far more important than a football game. Who is that coach that yells, Timeout, and everybody stops? What kind of authority does he have? We need to bring this kind of thinking into life in general. It seems to me that everything in life is thought out in great detail except actually living life. Football has been well thought out and is composed of rules and regulations. Baseball the same. Hockey Well maybe not so much hockey. Most games are well thought out, have rules to live by, and if something isnt going the way it is supposed to go, the coach has the privilege of yelling Timeout. How many times could I have used this little rule in my life? Wouldnt it be nice to stop life when you have made an inappropriate remark, maybe you said something to your wife that came out the wrong side of your mouth. I have done that many a times. I think it would be rather nice if when I realize what I have just said, to be able to yell Timeout. Then do it over again. The other day one of my checks from my checking account bounced. That would have been a perfect time to yell timeout and redo the whole thing. There are so many things in life that could benefit from this one little thing called timeout. I suggest that we began implementing this into our daily life. After all, our daily life is much more important than a football game, a hockey game, or a baseball game. I think whenever something goes awry we should have the privilege to stop it right in its tracks and do it over again. It does not matter how many times we have to do it over again, we continue doing it over until we get it right. It would make life more exciting if I knew that if I made a mistake I could call Timeout, do a do-over, and make everything right. I think we need to have a very stern conversation with good old Father Time. He is so much a stickler for time marching on. But sometimes you get tired of marching and need to sit down and take a breather. Then sometimes, you need to change the direction in which you are marching. It is not so bad the time marches on but when it needs to turn around and march the other way that is a completely different story. In thinking further along this line, I discovered God already has a Timeout plan. I found it in 1 John 1:9 (KJV), If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. With this in mind, I certainly want to take full advantage of Gods Timeout plan.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Friday, September 28, 2012~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, September 28, 2012 www.smcitizen.com special interests groups has destroyed our governments responsibility to provide protection and encouragement for our free enterprise system. Competition is supposed to be encouraged. We need more water and new energy sources. However the carbon based fuel sources, with their freedom to set their own prices, would wreak havoc on the economy at the very discussion on building new hydroelectric dams. A new president and a new cabinet that is more concerned with everyone and not a selected few could make a difference. A new attorney general who would enforce existing laws could threaten the freedom, fortune and fame of congressional members, financial leaders, bankers, lobbyists and hedge fund managers. The threat of accountability under a law is a great deterrent to violation of the public trust. A functional government with fiscal control and equal opportunities and responsibilities for all citizens could be ours. Do not be confused by the hype and hysterics from the media for their favored Democratic candidates. The only thing thats too big to fail in this country is this country. A heavy tax load on our next two generations has already been created. We must insure this debt does not increase, that we pay our fair share, and our heirs have the means to meet their responsibilities. Get prepared and vote. Our country and our way of life are at stake. Bill Farthing, OcalaPigs lifeThe TV news showed a clip of a pig saving a goat form drowning.

HEART FULL OF LIES By Ann RuleIn this 2003 true-crime novel accused murderess Liysa Northon is described by friends and family as sweet and charming, a charm she could apparently turn on and off like a toggle switch. Others found her rude and deceptive and were baffled by her success with so many men of quality, all the more perplexing because photos reveal a somewhat mousy looking, skinny young woman given to wearing bikinis and showing up even at semi-formal functions in bare feet. Never at a loss for male admirers, she used men as stepping stones in her three marriages. Liysa always had to have a man in her life, and it wouldnt be long before she began another romance. In truth, her liaisons tended to overlap. She rarely leapt blindly into single life, as she had invariably chosen the next man. Liysa was always drawn to men of a certain physical type. She liked her men a foot taller than she, lean and muscular and usually blond and blue eyed. Early in her life Liysa fantasized about idyllic relationships which no ordinary man could live up to. Thus, a first marriage ended quickly in disappointment, the second providing her with a career as a surf photographer, thanks to the mentoring of her famous photographer husband, Nick Mattson, who also gave her a son, Papako. The allure of third husband, Chris Northon, was surely his elusiveness. A happy bachelor at 40, Chris was not tempted to settle down. Liysa, however, dazzled him as no woman ever had. She used their fantastic sex life and seeming compatibility as a hostage to marriage. When Chris caved in to her ultimatum, close friends were stunned. Although the marriage was doomed from the start, it did produce a son for Chris who surprised even himself by instantly becoming an adoring, doting father. What would have been a glamorous, adventuresome life to a normal woman beautiful homes in Hawaii and Oregon and plenty of exciting travelfailed to satisfy Liysa. In a cold and calculating plan she posed for a year as a battered woman married to a violent man before shooting Chris on a camping trip so bizarre it raised many eyebrows. Even so, Liysa was coolly confident that a jury would buy her tearful self-defense. And she might have pulled it off but for a discovered hard drive she thought had been destroyed.

Tomorrow is National Museum Day. In an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine, participating museums across the country provide free entry to anyone holding a Smithsonian Museum Day Ticket. Our own Pun Alley provides a preview of the holiday with some amusing museum stories.Dry bonesTourists in the Chicago Museum of Natural History marvel at the dinosaur bones. One day one of them asked the guard, Can you tell me how old the dinosaur bones are? The guard replied, They are 3 million, four years, and six months old. Thats an awfully exact number, the tourist said. How do you know their age so precisely? The guard answered, Well, the dinosaur bones were three million years old when I started working here, and that was four and a half years ago. Nearby, the Chicago History Museum displays Hugh Hefners little black book. In the early part of the book there are only addresses and no phone numbers because it was before phones were invented.More bonesTwo women archeologists in Mexico were excavating an ancient Mayan burial ground, looking for some remains to take back to their museum. Unfortunately, everything they ran across was badly decomposed. One of them said, We dont seem to be having much luck. The other replied, Keep on digging. A good Mayan is hard to find.Ancient pawnbrokerSome ancient writings were found in a Turkey museum about King Ozymandias of Assyria. He was running low on cash after years of war with the Hittites. His last great possession was the Star of the Euphrates, the most valuable diamond in the ancient world. Desperate, he went to Croesus, the pawnbroker, to ask for a loan. Croesus said, Ill give you 100,000 dinars for it. But I paid a million dinars for it, the King protested. Dont you know who I am? I am the king! Croesus replied, When you wish to pawn a star, makes no difference who you are.ShortsA town in Austria opened a new museum dedicated to failed inventions. Or as Microsoft reported it, Hey! Someone just ordered a Zune. Theres a Hall Of Fame to honor outstanding women soldiers. Its a WACs Museum At the art museum a kid said to his mother, Look, mamma, they copied this painting from the calendar we have in our kitchen. I was enamored with the famous Paris art museum. It was Louvre at first site. Many a time the renowned artist had to paint on an empty stomach; he couldnt afford a canvas. Biologists studying the evolution of cats have been searching for the missing Lynx. Once there were two mice that lived in a museum. One evening after the museum had closed; the first mouse crawled into a huge suit of armor. Before he knew it, he was lost. Help! he shouted to his friend, Help me make it though the knight.Smoke gets in your eyesYears ago a Newberry farmer had a tractor museum. Every time one broke down he kept it. He even bought used tractors from other farmers and kept them in a large barn. When he retired he decided to sell them to an Atlanta businessman who had replied to his advertisement. They met in a local smoke-filled tavern to negotiate. The businessman asked, Could go somewhere else? Its hard to concentrate with this much smoke. Theres no need for that, said the farmer, watch this! He then took a deep, deep breath, sucking in all the smoke in the room. Then he leaned over to the partially open window and blew it all out into the night. Hey, how did you do that? gasped the businessman. Oh, it was nothing; you see, Im an ex-tractor fan.Mummys demiseAn archaeologist digging in the Negev Desert in Israel came upon a casket containing a mummy. After examining it, he called the curator of a prestigious natural-history museum. Ive just discovered a 3,000 year-old mummy of a man who died of heart failure! the scientist exclaimed. To which the curator replied, Bring him in. Well check it out. Later, the amazed curator called the archaeologist. You were right about the mummys age and cause of death. How in the world did you know? Easy. There was a note in his hand that said, ,000 Shekels on Goliath.

You dont take the teeth out of the tiger! I suggest it is time to pull our troops and embassies out of these Mideast countries and let them fight it out among themselves as they have throughout history. The only true ally we have there is Israel and I wouldnt spend another dime on foreign aid to any of the others. It is shocking how much money we give in foreign aid to countries who admit they dont even like us. They certainly are not worth one more American life. This is not about political party, this is about our recognizing that America is under attack and their stated goal is to bankrupt us, destroying our financial system. In other words, they plan to destroy our American way of life. What should be our greatest concern in the November elections: Who best wants to preserve our American way of Life? You know the answer! Wayne Rackley OcalaMideast letterOn Sept. 21 there was an article titled Destabilized Mideast. At first I thought it was an article supporting the Republican ticket, but soon realized, whether the writer knew it or not, he was admonishing President Bush for going to war with Iraq, through his, lying, cheating and irresponsible ways with the lives of our service men and women. But, after reading the whole article I agree to a point. Whenever anyone writes that Sadam Hussein was a stabilizing force in the Middle East, they forget the hundreds of thousands of his own people hed had killed. As Ive said, we were in Iraq because of Bush, plus hes responsible for the fallout into Afghanistan and Pakistan and I might say the whole Muslim world. When you add to that, the unstable state of Israel, weve really got a can of worms. I wont address the goings on in Libya, Egypt, and Syria or the other 30 countries weve incited to riots. One must understand its not a problem precipitated by President Obama, just the opposite. He wants to be out of Afghanistan within two years, but Romney wants to stay longer. Theres too many unstable people, political and otherwise, in this country who can do us damage. What people dont realize is, the great majority of wars the world has ever known have been religious wars. In many respects, thats what were engaged in now. Study your history and you will understand. Now, we and other nations, are trying to bring Democracy, to countries, we feel are disadvantaged. We cant, and shouldnt force our way of life on anyone. So why do it. We fail to realize there are two methods weve been using to try and change other countries way of life. One through a political, military process and the other is through the religious process. Both are wrong. We must remember, people who settled this country, were not all lily white as were settlers in Australia, which was primarily settled by convicts and outcasts. Just think, Mitt Romney received four deferments during the Vietnam War to pass out Mormon leaflets in France and other areas. He chose to serve the church rather than his country, and hes still is doing so. We have troops trying to settle a countrys internal affairs, as are missionaries trying to change other countrys religious beliefs to their way of thinking. Why cant we respect each countrys way of life and religion? We have within our own borders, internal political disagreements and religious beliefs. And, sometimes there is violence to solve the differences. Frankly, its those who want the most influence, causing all the trouble, political or religious. Certainly there is genocide in many countries, and when asked for our help we should give it. The key word is asked. We, but not me, condone our interjecLETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 tion into other countries political and religious beliefs, but when the president of Israel tries to influence the American people, to have them elect his favorite candidate, we take umbrage with it. Maybe going back to the isolationist way of life, may be the best way. For those people, who havent been in the service, during a war, they probably dont know what its like to see the dead and wounded, or have a mans head come off in your hands. Its horrible, and I wouldnt want anyone to have to go through it. Theres one group of people who should be honored to high heaven, and its our fighting men and women. They are the best. Notice I said fighting men and women, not 20 year retirees who served all their time only during peacetime to get a retirement check. But, and Ill close with this. If George W. Bush hadnt lied to the world, and over reacted to 9/11, there would be thousands of men and women, from many countries around the world, who would still be alive today. Those who have lost their lives in Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas, and the four brave Embassy people, a couple weeks ago in Libya are a waste. War begets war. Peace begets peace. I guess on a political note, President Obama is trying to close these wars, not extend them. We have had a drawdown and theres more to come by 2014. Bill Ford OcalaHype, hysterics in the electionMitt Romney is attempting to campaign for the presidency by telling us what is wrong in our country and what he would do to fix it. The various media sources are telling us that everything that Romney has said or done since he started his campaign is wrong. The Democrats are telling us that everything that Romney has said or done since the day he was born has been wrong. The Democratic candidates are fault free Barack Obama and his shadow Bill Clinton. Romney is a threat to the political forces inside the D.C. beltway that currently control our country. A new presidential team, dedicated to our founders basic principles, could disrupt their carefully crafted and very profitable methods of operations.

However, did you know that when an emergency vehicle displaying visual signals is parked on a road with two or more lanes traveling in the direction of the emergency vehicle, all other vehicles must move out of the lane closest to the emergency vehicle? If such lane change cannot be safely accomplished, or if there is only a single lane, drivers must slow to a speed of 20 miles per hour below the posted speed limit if the speed limit is 25 Passport Show ticket sales to start on Oct. 8 OAK RUN C WCarol AnnWheeler miles per hour or greater, or to 5 miles per hour if the speed limit is 20 miles per hour or less.

Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site)Proposing an amendment to Section 6 of Article VII and the creation of Section 32 of Article XII of the State Constitution to expand the availability of the property discount on the homesteads of veterans who became disabled as the result of a combat injury to include those who were not Florida residents when they entered the military and schedule the amendment to take effect January 1, 2013.Arguments forSupporters say this amendment will benefit older veterans who were injured in combat but did not live in Florida at the time they entered the military. They say the property tax discount can help with medical bills and may allow veterans to stay in their homes longer as they age. It might also stimulate the housing market by persuading veterans to move to Florida.Arguments againstOpponents say state and local governments face mounting budget shortfalls in part because of diminished property tax returns brought about by the collapse of the housing market. Schools and local governments need to maintain the tax base or consider cuts to public services.Should disabled veterans who move to Florida get a property tax discount?Amendment 2 relaxes the eligibility requirements for an existing property tax discount offered to disabled veterans. Currently, disabled veterans who meet the following four requirements are eligible for a property tax discount commensurate with the degree of their disability: 1) current Florida resident; 2) 65 or older; 3) disabled in combat; 4) Florida resident when they entered the military. If passed, Amendment 2 would eliminate that fourth eligibility requirement. As an example of how the current disability discount works, a veteran eligible for the discount with a 50 percent disability can claim 50 percent off the assessed value of his home. Roughly 1,200 veterans received that discount in 2010, allowing them to subtract, on average, $24,000 from their homes value before property taxes were calculated. This proposed amendment would give that same tax break to veterans, age 65 and older, who were disabled in combat but living in another state when they entered the military so long as they now Friday, September 28, 2012~ 25 www.smcitizen.com An indicator of our cultural decline is loose use of what is left of the English language. Editorials and letters to editors about voter rejection of the tax referenda on the August primary ballot exemplified confusion about the difference between schools and education. School is an institution at which instruction is provided. Confusion occurs when we express concern about whats wrong with our schools. Most citizens care about the current state of public education. Even our least educated citizens know education is instruction which passes on knowledge, or training intended to develop skills. Knowledge and training were passed down for centuries without benefit of todays campuses, staffs, and political hierarchies. Voters didnt support the schools/education referenda on the August primary ballot because American taxpayers have caught on that the public education hierarchy is first and foremost a self-interest organization. In the not distant past education think tanks suggested children couldnt learn without balanced nutrition. School lunch programs became learning necessities. Some time later, after satisfaction that lunches were enhancing academic achievement, elite thinkers suggested the negative effects of poverty could and should be mitigated by school breakfast programs. Despite the benefits of meals and social services provided at schools, public education is in dismal condition, which is exacerbated by our weak economy and our national epidemic of dysfunctional families. We wouldnt be surprised to hear a serious suggestion from Washington that public education could be further improved by dinners at school. Three nutritious meals accompanied by after school tutoring and counwww.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 28, 2012 When it comes to television, I guess Im out of touch with mainstream America. That was proven by the Emmy Awards list. The big thing that keeps me from appreciating the winners is that I dont have any pay channels, other than sports, where I have MLB Extra Innings and the NFL Red Zone. Thats it. No HBO, no Showtime, none of those channels. A lot of things on those channels are adult material, which we dont have in our house. So Monday morning I scanned through the winners list, to count how many shows I watch that won awards. The answer was none, zilch, zero. My wife had one, the host of Dancing With the Stars, a show I dont particularly like but she watches faithfully. Admittedly, we dont watch too much network television. Most of our viewing comes from CBS. The premieres this week of Hawaii Five-O, Blue Bloods, NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles and Person of Interest are interesting to us. We also like some of the offnetwork shows such as Covert Affairs, or Rizzoli and Isles. None of those were on the winners list. So now the fall season is starting, and well try a couple of new shows and see if they are any good. My wife and I already have a discrepancy. On Monday, theres a new show called Revolution. We watched the first episode together, but now Im turning it over to her to watch. She said it reminded her of Lost, I thought it reminded me of the move Red Dawn. Either way, its all hers. Besides, Monday is football night. Enough said? ELECTRONIC RECYCLING: The city held an electronic recycling day (actually hazardous waste recycling) last Saturday. It was for city residents only. The trouble is, the city didnt notify us until after 4 p.m. on Thursday, way too late for us to get the message out. We yelled at them a little, and they have promised that the next time theyll get it to us sooner, so we can notify people. Incidentally, I took a couple of dead televisions to the site Saturday morning, and they took them readily, without asking for identification whether I lived in the city, as the news release said would be done. I had my license and a utility bill ready to prove where I lived, but it wasnt necessary. Electronic recycling is something that needs to be done. The last time the county did it, it took place at a recreation complex all the way up in Citra. Thats not very convenient for most of our readers.

Last week we told you that voting early might be the answer to avoid long lines on Election Day. The main culprit, we noted, was the choice of yes or no on the 11 proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution. When you get your ballot, youll see that the last amendment is No. 12. However, Amendment 7 was stricken from the ballot by the courts and is covered by No. 8, hence the total of 11 on the ballot. Each week, were going to add our own assessment of the amendments published that week. Amendment 1 is, in our opinion, a waste of time. If it passes, it says that Floridians cannot be forced to purchase health care, as mandated by Obamacare. However, the Supreme Court has already ruled that the mandate is constitutional, and that would supersede state law, so it doesnt really matter if this amendment passes or not. The only way that people would not be required to take part in the insurance would be to elect a Republican president and Senate, along with the House of Representatives, and then have Obamacare repealed. Some people think thats possible, but we doubt it. In our minds, a Romney win is still possible, but a change in the Senate is far more unlikely. Amendment 2 involves a tax break for veterans, giving an extra homestead exemption to disabled vets who did not live here when they joined the military. Its hard to find fault with something like this, but read carefully the part about the financial impact, and ask yourself if the state can handle any more loss of tax revenue. We think not. No one should be against helping veterans, especially disabled vets, but the question is how much we are willing to bear financially. Well stay neutral on this one, but advise you to think it over carefully. Next week well take on some more. There are other exemption requests to be covered down the road. Stay tuned. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Starting to look at the amendments No clue when it comes to Emmys Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Supporting schools or supporting education? Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED seling may yet be considered remedies for lack of parental inspiration, supervision, and literacy. Think tanks, colleges of education, and their political patrons will continue to come up with suggestions in the name of educational improvements, accompanied by appeals for additional funding as always. U.S. Department of Education, bureaucrats are working currently on a goal of common standards for all states, even though several federal laws prohibit Washington from mandating, directing, or controlling any states education agency or school curriculum. Education bureaucrats see federal laws as temporary inconveniences which interfere with their control agenda and the interests of their self-serving professional organizations. We wouldnt be surprised if the Department of Education requested authority to classify their deliberations as top secret. Is public education really so self-interested? Bill Gates, cofounder of Microsoft, who has invested $4 billion in U.S. education projects says: Most people dont realize how bad the situation has become. Weve never had a system that identifies great teaching, so we can pass on the skills to others. Educator organizations cringe at the prospect of evaluation. Should we believe Bill Gates observations and experience as a benefactor of public education or the Department of Education, which seeks to dictate all aspects of public education as quietly as possible? Mr. Gates interest is self-funded, and not self-serving. Not treasonThe writer of a recent letter said that the production of the video criticizing Islam was next to treason. This requires a new definition of treason and a rejection of our Bill of Rights. Then he thanked God that President Obama apologized for it and said that it was not the American way. I dont know what he apologized for or to whom. I hope that he was not apologizing for our right of free speech because that is the American way. The writer has it backward. The governments of those countries who allowed or did not prevent the murder of American citizens and the destruction of American property should apologize to us. How shameful to kill and riot because they dont like our principles. He was shocked that the president of Israel would try to intervene in our political process. Thats what we have done over history. The United States has intervened in the affairs of other countries in all kinds of circumstances. Sometimes to set up governments, other times to topple governments. We try to pick winners and losers. Dan Drake Oak RunIts time to defend AmericaAre we really ignorant enough to believe the riots by the Muslims including the killing of our ambassador were caused by a single video? That is being used as an excuse for revolts planned to occur on 9/11 by terrorists who hate America and our way of life. This was a direct slap in our face as we mourned our fellow Americans who were killed on 9/11 to let us know they do not fear our retaliation. Our embassies are considered American territory and should be defended accordingly, for an attack on them is an act of war. We certainly dont owe them an apology and should make sure we find the guilty parties and do so quickly. We should also question why we didnt have better intelligence that would have predicted such an incident. There are now pictures on the Internet of the humiliation and killing of our ambassador that if proven to be actual and truthful, should be on every front page and on every TV station throughout the USA. We should make sure our embassies are protected by our best military personnel, armed to the fullest with orders to put down any and all uprisings without hesitation. It is my unPLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site)Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to prohibit laws or rules from compelling any person or employer to purchase, obtain, or otherwise provide for health care coverage; permit a person or an employer to purchase lawful health care services directly from a health care provider; permit a health care provider to accept direct payment from a person or an employer for lawful health care services; exempt persons, employers, and health care providers from penalties and taxes for paying directly or accepting direct payment for lawful health care services; and prohibit laws or rules from abolishing the private market for health care coverage of any lawful health care service. Specifies that the amendment does not affect which health care services a health care provider is required to perform or provide; affect which health care services are permitted by law; prohibit care provided pursuant to general law relating to workers compensation; affect laws or rules in effect as of March 1, 2010; affect the terms or conditions of any health care system to the extent that those terms and conditions do not have the effect of punishing a person or an employer for paying directly for lawful health care services or a health care provider for accepting direct payment from a person or an employer for lawful health care services; or affect any general law passed by two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature, passed after the effective date of the amendment, provided such law states with specificity the public necessity justifying the exceptions from the provisions of the amendment. The amendment expressly provides that it may not be construed to prohibit negotiated provisions in insurance contracts, network agreements, or other provider agreements contractually limiting copayments, coinsurance, deductibles, or other patient charges.Arguments for: Supporters of this proposed amendment say the federal government cannot force people to purchase health insurance, and this amendment is an attempt to protect Floridians from that requirement in the federal health care act passed in 2010. They say voting for this measure would send a message that Congress overstepped its authority.Arguments against: Opponents say that despite its stated intention, this proposed amendment will not allow Floridians to opt out of the requirement that all Americans purchase health insurance. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on June 28, 2012, that the federal requirement to purchase insurance is constitutional. Amendment 1Amendment 2 Title on ballot: Health Care Services Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This would add an amendment to the state constitution that attempts to prohibit the government from requiring individuals to purchase health insurance.

It is difficult to estimate how many disabled veterans would qualify for the discount under the relaxed standards, but the state estimates that the tax revenues school districts and local governments would lose if Amendment 2 passes is roughly $15 million combined over the first three years. State lawmakers say the cost is worth it. This bill provides relief to our states aging combat-injured veterans, state Sen. Mike Bennett, R-Bradenton, said in a press release. Our older veterans made great sacrifices for our country, although many did not live in the Sunshine State at the time they entered the military. As they age and struggle with service-related disabilities, this bill will help alleviate their financial challenges. The measure won unanimous approval in the state Senate and House. There is no known organized opposition to the proposed amendment. As with all proposed amendments, passage requires the approval by 60 percent or more of the voters. If passed, Amendment 2 goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2013.Current LawFlorida has a long history of offering property tax breaks to its permanent residents. One of those tax breaks allows a homeowner to claim a $50,000 tax exemption on their primary residence, what is commonly known as a homesteaded property. That amount is subtracted from the assessed value of the home before property taxes are calculated, thereby reducing the tax bill. This form of tax relief is reserved for primary residences, meaning the owner must live in the home the majority of the year and not claim any other residence as a primary residence. Additionally, the state offers several property tax breaks to military veterans disabled while in the service: Veterans of any age with at least a 10 percent disability incurred while in active military service (no matter where they lived when they entered the military) can deduct $5,000 from the value of their property before taxes are calculated (in addition to the $50,000 exemption offered to all owners of homesteaded property). As mentioned earlier, disabled veterans 65 and over who were Florida residents when they entered the military can also receive a tax break equal to the percentage of their disability (in addition to the $50,000 homestead exemption and the $5,000 disability exemption for those eligible for both). And veterans with a service-related, total (100 percent) and permanent disability are eligible for total relief from all property taxes on their primary residence. As an example of how these current tax breaks might apply, a veteran with a primary residence assessed at $200,000 who was a Florida resident when he entered the military and who is 65 or older with a 50 percent disability related to combat, could claim $55,000 in exemptions and claim 50 percent off the remaining $145,000 assessed value, resulting in an assessment on that property for tax purposes of $72,500.Estimated ImpactAccording to a Florida House of Representatives staff analysis, 1,206 veterans received the discount on property taxes equal to their combat-related disability in 2010, amounting to a combined discount of $28,749,630. On average, the discount allowed those disabled vets to subtract $23,839 from their homes value before property taxes were calculated. It is difficult to say how many disabled veterans would be eligible for the property tax discount if Amendment 2 passes and expands the law to include those who moved here from other states. According to the House of Representatives analysis, there were 77,535 veterans in Florida age 65 and older receiving compensation for service-related conditions in 2010. However, the number of veterans in this population who were 65 or older by exact disability rating percentage category, the number who were Florida residents at the time of entry into military service and the number of veterans whose compensation is the result of combat are indeterminate at this time, the staff analysis said. According to the states Revenue Estimating Conference (REC), if passed Amendment 2s estimated impact on school taxes during fiscal year 2013-14 would be a combined $1.1 million in school districts across the state, $2.3 million in fiscal year 2014-15, and $3.6 million in fiscal year 2015-16. Thats an estimate of the combined revenue school districts would not collect if the amendment passes. If passed, the impact on non-school property tax revenues is expected to be $1.3 million in fiscal year 201314, $2.6 million in 2014-15, and $4 million in 2015-16, the REC estimates. Thats an estimate of the combined revenue local government agencies that levy property taxes would not collect if the amendment passes.Friday, September 28, 2012~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, September 28, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Should the state attempt to ban governments from requiring the purchase of health insurance?Amendment 1 is an attempt to exempt Floridians from a provision in the federal health care law known as the individual mandate, which requires all Americans to have health insurance by 2014 or face financial penalties. The proposal also attempts to exempt employers and health care providers from penalties or taxes that the government might impose for failing to pay for health insurance. In part, the proposal reads, Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to prohibit laws or rules from compelling any person or employer to purchase, obtain, or otherwise provide for health care coverage. The amendments supporters say the individual mandate is an overreach of federal authority. This proposed constitutional amendment is about an individuals right to make his own health care decisions without interference from the federal government, former state Senate President Mike Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, told The New American in January 2011. It also sends a message to Washington D.C. that its one-size-fits-all approach to health care doesnt work. Opponents say the proposed amendment is more about politics than law. We should be concerned with healing, and not repealing, Rep. Joe Gibbons, D-Hallandale, told the News Service of Florida in May 2011. If Amendment 1 were to pass, its legal standing and significance remain questionable. Legal scholars mostly agree that the fate of the individual mandate rests not with the states but with the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled in June 2012 that the individual mandate is constitutional. Now that the nations highest court has ruled, the passage or defeat of Amendment 1 has no practical implications other than to send a message that a majority of Floridas voters are either for or against the individual mandate. State lawmakers voted largely along party lines in deciding to place the proposal on the ballot, with Republicans voting for and Democrats against. As with all proposed amendments, passage requires approval from 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved, Amendment 1 would take effect on Jan. 8, 2013.HistoryFollowing his election in 2008, President Obama announced his intention to establish a national health care system that provides access to health insurance for every American. In March 2010, he signed a health care act into law that, among other things, required all Americans to purchase insurance by 2014 or face a financial penalty the so-called individual mandate. Why the individual mandate? Without it, the number of premiumpaying, healthy policyholders may not reach the critical mass needed to cover the costs associated with providing care to every American.Legal Challenges The laws passage prompted a legal challenge from 26 states. Florida took a leading role. It filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Pensacola that claimed the requirement that individuals purchase health insurance or face penalties is an unconstitutional expansion of federal authority. In defending the individual mandate, the Obama administration argued that the costs associated with the uninsured affect the national economy and interstate commerce, and are therefore subject to federal regulation under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Several district courts and two federal appellate courts offered conflicting rulings on whether the federal government has a right to impose the individual mandate. The U.S. Supreme Court decided in June 2012 that the individual mandate is constitutional.Can a state nullify federal law?Now that the individual mandate has been declared constitutional by the nations highest court, do states have a right to ignore or reject that law? Under the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution, the federal government is considered the supreme law of the land when conflicts arise with states. The Supremacy Clause has been tested throughout the countrys history, and legal precedent appears to affirm the opinion of most legal scholars that passage of the proposed amendment would not allow Floridians to opt out of the individual mandate. However, passage would send a message that a majority of Florida voters are against the individual mandate and that message might become ammunition for lawmakers vowing to overturn the law.

The discussion centered on sheriffs vehicles, and he emphasized that you have to keep the deputies safe, noting that when youre chasing someone at 80 mph, the condition of tires and transmission was important. He criticized the federal government, saying the federal overreach is becoming epidemic in America. Asked about the work farm, he called it a great idea, and gave the current MCSO kudos for the farm, saying it is therapeutic. He said he would try to expand it.

BY WARNEFORD JOSEPH AND ENID B. JONES The speaker at the recent meeting of Marion Oaks Democratic Club was Frank Bruno, who plans to take his experience as a local public official and successful businessman to the bigger arena of the Florida Senate in District 8. He is a 40-year resident of Volusia County who has served his community in numerous leadership positions. His dedication to service is evidenced in a long and distinguished record of service such as serving as a member and the first elected chair of the Volusia County Council. For the last 25 years, Bruno has been a leader in the business community promoting the development of small businesses and economic growth overall. As a local business leader and public official, he has focused on improving the quality of life and attracting industry that would provide sustainable jobs for the people of Central Florida. He was instrumental in bringing SunRail to the area and improving transportation along the I-4 corridor. He continues to work at finding real solutions to challenges in transportation for the community. Brunos work stretches beyond Volusia County as he recently was seen hosting a public round table at the Marion County Library to address the growing concerns in our community about the future of Silver Springs and water issues affecting the region. Bringing together environmental experts and concerned citizens, he led a conversation focused on the future of the community and our responsibility to be good stewards of water for our children and their children. It was quite remarkable that he is addressing a group that is not in his district but, as he mentioned, he wants to get the word out on his commitment to addressing the concerns of Floridians as a whole. Further, Bruno devotes himself to charity and community organizations with a view to strengthening our communities, enhancing the life of disabled veterans as well as others with physical disabilities. He stressed the importance of getting out to vote, reminding us that the 30 percent turnout during the primaries is not good enough. His spoke about three main areas of focus: protecting the middle class; helping small businesses; and investing in education. On this last issue he thinks that the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) is failing our students. He also fielded questions from the audience which included concerns for upgrading the existing Ocala airport to one for commercial use, the re-opening of the Ocala railway station for passenger travel, and the provision of public bus transportation by Sun Tran for the residents of Marion Oaks to the City of Ocala. He gave clear and concise answers and promised to follow up. Judge Cochran, who is running for Supervisor of Elections, was our second speaker for the evening. He has spoken to us on a previous occasion but wanted to encourage us to be proactive in getting out to vote and support him. The next meeting will be Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. Marion Oaks Democrats hear from Bruno The countdown clock to Floridas voter registration deadline is ticking, with the deadline on Oct. 9. Thats why the League of Women Voters of Florida Education Fund has moved its already active voter registration and support campaign into even higher gear with the addition of a Voter Assistance Hotline, 1-855FL-VOTER (1-855-3586837). Hotline callers can get answers to their questions about how changes in Floridas election law affect them. They can also learn where and how to register to vote, how to check and verify their voter registration information, how to change a name or address, update their signature, find the location of their polling place, and request a vote-by-mail ballot, along with other vital registration information. Registration is the key to ensuring that all voters have the chance to make their voices heard on Election Day. Every single vote counts, said League President Deirdre Macnab. Our members throughout the state are making renewed face-to-face efforts to boost registration and compensate for lost time, and were pleased to add this Voter Assistance Hotline to supplement their efforts. Through the Voter Assistance Hotline, callers can also schedule League speakers who stand ready to provide groups and organizations with information on the amendments and issues that will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot. The Voter Assistance Hotline is just the latest addition to the Leagues growing list of resources for voters. The Leagues nonpartisan 2012 Florida Election and Voter Guide is available at public libraries and through local Leagues and other organizations in all 67 counties. Also available online for voters, www.BeReadyToVote.org, a one-stop site packed with information for registered voters and those who want to register. Voter hotline Gas line cut, evacuations neededA private contractor excavating with heavy equipment ruptured a two inch natural gas line Wednesday morning. Ocala Fire Rescue responded to the leak at 10:32 a.m. according to Fire Captain Doug Smutko. On arrival firefighters evacuated two businesses in the 4500 block of Southwest 40th Avenue. A dozen employees were evacuated from Trane and John Deere for a little more than one hour. TECO gas company responded to make repairs to the gas line and there were no injuries. Florida Governor Rick Scott has declared September 2012 as Florida Square Dance Month. In addition other states have declared their own square dance months and the US Congress has moved to make square dance the official folk dance of the United States. Square dancing can trace its roots to the earliest part of our countrys history. At this time there are square dancers all over the world taking part in this fun pastime. That means that square dancers from Ocala can dance everywhere. Even in foreign countries because all of the calls are in English. As is common, most square dance tips are alternated with round dances. The Ocala Twirlers are a new dance club that was formed out of what was the Oak Run Twirlers. We have over 60 members and we dance on Monday afternoons at Ocala West United Methodist church. We dance to music that is a mixture of traditional country western, show tunes, and recent pop music. While traditional western clothing is encouraged for some dances, lessons are taught in casual clothing. The Ocala Twirlers will be holding classes starting on Oct. 8 at 12:45 p.m. The first lesson is no cost but subsequent lessons are six dollars per person. It is recommended that you have a partner to join you in these classes. We encourage everyone to join us in this fun activity. For more information call Tom Warren at 352-237-6416, Norm Barnes at 352-873-1734 or Tony Trinchera at 352-861-9812. Square dancers at Ocala West Two road names have been chosen. They are Osceola Boulevard and Farris Bryant Avenue. Two major corridors in and around the city of Ocala were selected by the Roads of Marion County Road Name Selection Committee recently. The 31st / 32nd / 42nd / 44th / 39th corridor which runs east and west on the southern side of Ocala was given the name, Osceola Boulevard. This corridor will cross Interstate 75 with a new bridge and connect to State Road 200 at 40th Avenue. Osceola lived in Marion County and his village, Osceolas Town, was less than a half mile south of the newly named corridor. At that point on State Road 200 where Osceola Boulevard intersects, a new road will be built, and through a number of different existing fourlane roads, will travel north all the way to County Road 326. This corridor was given the name, Farris Bryant Avenue. Farris Bryant was born and raised in Ocala and became governor of Florida in 1961. As governor he saw that I-75 came through Ocala and was instrumental in getting many of our primary and secondary roads constructed.

On Saturday, Sept. 29, the Marion County Sheriffs Office, along with the Ocala and Police Department and in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), will participate in the National Pill Take Back Day. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a uniformed officer will be stationed at the following no questions asked collection sites: Marion County Sheriffs Office South Marion District Office, 8230 S.E. 165th Mulberry Lane, The Villages. Marion County Sheriffs Office Southwest District Office, 9048 S.W. State Road 200, Ocala. Ocala Police Department, 402 S. Pine Ave., Ocala. The purpose of this event is to give persons in the community who have a surplus of outdated prescription drugs; pills they dont have a prescription for; or pills they obtained illegally, an opportunity to turn them in without facing any criminal charges or repercussions. Marion County and the state of Florida have seen a significant increase in the abuse of prescription drugs and overdoses in the last few years. Many of these cases involve adolescents who obtained these medications from their parents or their home medicine cabinet. The Sheriffs Office encourages anyone who has prescription pills they would like to or need to get rid of, to take advantage of this National Pill Take Back Day to do so. Citizens can also visit www.dea.gov to enter their zip code and locate the drop-off site closest to them. More information about prescription drug abuse is also available on this site. Drop off outdated medicine Saturday Second of a series of stories based on candidates appearance at a forum at the main library recently.BY JIM CLARK EditorCandidates for sheriff spoke to the audience at a recent forum. Going first was Dan Kuhn, currently serving as undersheriff. He recently won the Republican primary. He is a former prosecutor and is a sworn officer who, as he said, has had an opportunity to study at the highest level. He was asked about the budget, and said he has the experience of discussions with the County Commission. Kuhn said the Sheriffs Office has been streamlining, and said there were no layoffs, but the workforce was cut by attrition. He said that to help with the budget a chief of staff position was eliminated, but to keep deputies they added two line-level deputies when a captain retired. The next question concerned privatization, and said that there are certain things that dont lend themselves to outsourcing. He added that you have to make sure whoever you outsource to has the same priorities. Asked about juvenile crime, he said that money is saved by housing juvenile offenders on the same property, but not the same building, as the jail. He also mentioned the WILA (work in lieu of arrest) program which only has a recidivism of 8 percent. Finally, he was asked about personal characteristics that would benefit him in the job, and he said he cares about the community. You have to have a servants heart. Running as a member of the Constitution Party is Bernie DeCastro, who has lived in the county since 1984 and runs a non-profit group that reduces crime by working with people re-entering the community. Weve got to stop that vicious cycle. Asked about the budget, he said he has special business skills he would bring to the job, and does the same thing as the Sheriffs Office on a smaller scale every year. He said that leadership and integrity were the important things on the job. He was asked about working with the County Commission, and Sheriff candidates push for votes at forum Tracking the amendments Page 25 PLEASESEESHERIFF, PAGE3 Local veterans need your helpVFW Post 4781 Flea Market on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 19 and 20 is approaching quickly and the vets are in need of donations as there is a shortage of household items for sale this year.
