Third of a series on candidates who appeared at a recent forum.BY JIM CLARK Editor Candidates for supervisor of election took the floor at a recent forum at the downtown library. First up was Judge Cochran, who is currently serving as the public information officer at the Sheriffs Office. The former media worker at Gannett and New York Times Broadcast spoke about getting more people involved, trying to eliminate voter suppression. The Democrat praised early voting and absentee ballots, saying with the number of amendments it would be more beneficial. Asked about changes he would implement, he said he would set up voter registration in neighborhoods, and he also said the he would get people excited to vote, and expand media relations. The Republican is Wesley Wilcox, currently the assistant in the elections office. Incumbent Dee Brown chose not to run again. He said that he has spent 22 years coordinating elections, and is an instructor in the state certification process for election workers. He said he would attempt to get out to more locations, and said he would increase social and electronic interactions. He emphasized that every vote counts, and spoke of a recent Belleview election that finished with a tie. Asked about voter fraud, Wilcox said the idea of showing ID is not a suppression issue. He agreed that voting by mail this year would be a help to speed things up at the polls on Election Day.

To address that perceived inequity, the amendment that voters approved in 2008 to raise the homestead exemption to $50,000 also placed a 10 percent cap on annual assessment increases for non-homesteaded properties. A 2010 Proposal In 2009, after the bubble burst on Floridas housing market, lawmakers passed a proposed amendment that included a benefit for first-time homebuyers and a reduction in the cap on non-homesteaded property from 10 percent to 5 percent. The first-time homebuyer benefit was meant to stimulate the housing market by offering new buyers more equal footing with existing homeowners whose assessed values are depressed by receiving the Save Our Homes benefit for years. Reducing the cap on the non-homesteaded properties was meant to give relief to landlords, snowbirds and the owners of commercial property. AMENDMENT 4 CONTINUED FROM PAGE 28 The Florida Chamber of Commerce said in 2010 that lowering the assessment cap to 5 percent for non-homestead property was a key to making the tax burden fairer for businesses. Critics of the 2010 proposal feared local governments and school districts would suffer the brunt of further property tax breaks. If approved, the amendment would have cost those local entities hundreds of millions of dollars, state economists estimated. The amendment was opposed by the Florida Education Association. On May 1, 2009, the final measure passed the Legislature. But the proposal was challenged in court by a group of citizens and labor unions and two months later a circuit court judge ordered them removed from the ballot, finding that its summary lacked details about the measure, such as the dates when the tax breaks would have gone into effect. The state Supreme Court upheld the lower court decision.

As with all proposed constitutional amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved, the new state revenue limitation becomes effective in fiscal year 2014-15. HistoryFlorida is among as many as 30 states to adopt revenue or spending limits, according to a review by the National Conference of State Legislatures. Colorados is the most controversial, and among the strictest. Adopted in 1992, and called the Taxpayers Bill of Rights (TABOR), it limits both state revenues and revenues from local government. It requires voter approval before taxes can be raised, and its cap is tied to changes in population and inflation. Floridas revenue limit, passed by nearly 60 percent of the voters in 1994, is not as strict as the limits Colorado passed. Florida caps state revenues only, and uses a formula tied to changes in personal income. Revenues neared the cap in Florida the first few years after its passage. Since that time, however, revenues subject to the limitation have generally grown more slowly than personal income, according to a Florida Senate staff analysis. That analysis points to a number of reasons for the widening gap between the limit and revenues: Tax cuts enacted by Legislature beginning in 1999; reductions in estate tax revenues resulting from changes in federal law; and the effects of the recession. In 2005, Colorado eased its revenue limits amid a deepening fiscal crisis. Since then, a number of states have rejected strict revenue limits. In Florida in 2008, 2009 and 2010, legislation to impose stricter revenue limits failed to pass the Legislature. That changed in 2011, when the Legislature passed what became Amendment 3. AMENDMENT 3 CONTINUED FROM PAGE 26 parities and strip an estimated $1 billion from the tax base over the next three years at a time when local governments are struggling to provide basic services. Should the state enhance tax exemptions for non-homesteaded properties and first-time homebuyers? Amendment 4 extends tax breaks to property owners and first-time property buyers. Its most consequential provisions would: 1) Prevent the assessed value of homesteaded and specified non-homesteaded properties from increasing if the market value of that property decreases compared to the previous year. This would allow the Legislature to eliminate a provision in the current law known as recapture, which can cause the taxable value of a property to rise even if its market value drops; 2) Reduce from 10 percent to 5 percent the cap on annual increases in the assessments of specified non-homesteaded properties such as residential rental property, seasonal homes, and commercial property; 3) Authorize an additional homestead exemption to homebuyers who qualify for the existing exemption and who are firsttime buyers or have not owned property during the previous three years or longer. The additional exemption would phase out over five years and be equal to 50 percent of the market value of the property but not greater than the median market value of all homesteaded properties in the county where the property is located. Proponents say the tax breaks will stimulate the housing and commercial real estate markets. They also say it will help property owners in a down economy. Critics say the proposal will hurt cashstrapped school districts, cities and counties already forced to cut services. Total tax revenue losses over a three-year period have been estimated by the state at nearly $1 billion. The bill to include this amendment on the 2012 ballot passed comfortably in the House by a 105-11 vote, and passed in the Senate by a closer vote of 25-12. Although several questions are raised in this one proposed amendment, voters will be casting a single vote on whether to approve all of them or defeat all of them. As with all amendments on the ballot, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. It passed the provisions in the amendment would take effect Jan. 1, 2013. HistoryIn 2008, 64 percent of the voters approved a constitutional amendment providing for a $50,000 homestead exemption. The $50,000 is subtracted from the assessed value of an eligible home and property taxes are calculated based on that lower amount. 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 in Florida or in any other state. In addition to the homestead exemption, state law also caps annual increases in property assessments used to calculate tax bills. Called the Save Our Homes provision, it limits the increase in property assessments on homesteaded properties to 3 percent annually or the rate of inflation, whichever is less.

Amendment 3Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site): This proposed amendment to the State Constitution replaces the existing state revenue limitation based on Florida personal income growth with a new state revenue limitation based on inflation and population changes. Under the amendment, state revenues, as defined in the amendment, collected in excess of the revenue limitation must be deposited into the budget stabilization fund until the fund reaches its maximum balance, and thereafter shall be used for the support and maintenance of public schools by reducing the minimum financial effort required from school districts for participation in a state-funded education finance program, or, if the minimum financial effort is no longer required, returned to the taxpayers. The Legislature may increase the state revenue limitation through a bill approved by a super majority vote of each house of the Legislature. The Legislature may also submit a proposed increase in the state revenue limitation to the voters. The Legislature must implement this proposed amendment by general law. The amendment will take effect upon approval by the electors and will first apply to the 2014-2015 state fiscal year.Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment would ensure that the state budget never grows beyond a familys ability to pay the taxes and fees needed to fund that growth. They say it would make government more efficient. Arguments against:Critics say that during tough economic times, when tax revenues drop and there is a greater need for government services, this amendment would make it impossible for agencies to meet demand, even when there is available revenue. They say it threatens funding for critical government services like health care and education. Should the state change the way it calculates its revenue limit?Since 1995, Florida has set a cap for the amount of revenue it can spend every year from taxes and fees imposed on everything from gasoline and tobacco sales to business licenses and auto titles. Any excess revenue is to be deposited in the states rainy day fund or returned to taxpayers, rather than be spent by the government. The cap is considered by its backers to be a self-imposed restraint on government growth. The current version is set using a formula based on annual changes in Florida personal income, a cumulative total of all personal earnings such as wages, dividends, rent or interest income received in a given year by Florida residents. To date, state revenue collections have never exceeded the cap (largely due to rising personal income and falling tax rates). If passed, Amendment 3 would impose a stricter formula for calculating the revenue limit and, as a result, increase the likelihood it would limit government spending. The new formula would be based on annual population growth and inflation, instead of personal income. Those indicators are considered less volatile than personal income growth and, therefore, more likely to constrain growth in state revenues than the current limitation, according to a state Senate analysis of Amendment 3. In fact, the analysis shows revenues would have exceeded the limits in fiscal years 2004-05 and 2005-06 had the revenue limitation proposed in Amendment 3 been in effect since 1994. Supporters say the cap is needed to protect Floridas economy. We have witnessed first-hand how the government can take too much when the economy is good, former Senate President Mike Haridopolis said in a prepared statement. (Amendment 3) wisely limits state spending. Overuse of taxpayer dollars is an unwise tactic that only hinders our states growth. However, opponents fear catastrophic results during recessionary times or if a natural disaster strikes. With strict revenue limits in place, the state might be hard-pressed to fund necessary services. They point to Colorado, which enacted a cap in 1992, as an example of what potentially can go wrong. With its strict revenue limits, Colorados government was strapped to fund education and provide other public services when its economy softened. The state ultimately loosened the rules for setting its revenue limits. It was disastrous for (Colorado), for their education, for their health care, state Sen. Nan Rich, D-Weston, told the Associated Press article in May 2011. The measure passed the Legislature Title on Ballot: State Government Revenue Limitation Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would set a state revenue limit each year based on a formula that considers population growth and inflation instead of using the current method of calculating the revenue limit based on personal income. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you want the state to change the way it calculates its revenue limit. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not want the state to change the way it calculates its revenue limit. PLEASESEEAMENDMENT 3 PAGE28 Amendment 4Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site): (1) This would amend Florida Constitution Article VII, Section 4 (Taxation; assessments) and Section 6 (Homestead exemptions). It also would amend Article XII, Section 27, and add Sections 32 and 33, relating to the Schedule for the amendments. (2) In certain circumstances, the law requires the assessed value of homestead and specified nonhomestead property to increase when the just value of the property decreases. Therefore, this amendment provides that the Legislature may, by general law, provide that the assessment of homestead and specified nonhomestead property may not increase if the just value of that property is less than the just value of the property on the preceding January 1, subject to any adjustment in the assessed value due to changes, additions, reductions, or improvements to such property which are assessed as provided for by general law. This amendment takes effect upon approval by the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, shall take effect January 1, 2013. (3) This amendment reduces from 10 percent to 5 percent the limitation on annual changes in assessments of nonhomestead real property. This amendment takes effect upon approval of the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, takes effect January 1, 2013. (4) This amendment also authorizes general law to provide, subject to conditions specified in such law, an additional homestead exemption to every person who establishes the right to receive the homestead exemption provided in the Florida Constitution within 1 year after purchasing the homestead property and who has not owned property in the previous 3 calendar years to which the Florida homestead exemption applied. The additional homestead exemption shall apply to all levies except school district levies. The additional exemption is an amount equal to 50 percent of the homestead propertys just value on January 1 of the year the homestead is established. The additional homestead exemption may not exceed an amount equal to the median just value of all homestead property within the county where the property at issue is located for the calendar year immediately preceding January 1 of the year the homestead is established. The additional exemption shall apply for the shorter of 5 years or the year of sale of the property. The amount of the additional exemption shall be reduced in each subsequent year by an amount equal to 20 percent of the amount of the additional exemption received in the year the homestead was established or by an amount equal to the difference between the just value of the property and the assessed value of the property determined under Article VII, Section 4(d), whichever is greater. Not more than one such exemption shall be allowed per homestead property at one time. The additional exemption applies to property purchased on or after January 1, 2011, if approved by the voters at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, or to property purchased on or after January 1, 2012, if approved by the voters at the 2012 general election. The additional exemption is not available in the sixth and subsequent years after it is first received. The amendment shall take effect upon approval by the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, takes effect January 1, 2013. (5) This amendment also delays until 2023, the repeal, currently scheduled to take effect in 2019, of constitutional amendments adopted in 2008 which limit annual assessment increases for specified nonhomestead real property. This amendment delays until 2022 the submission of an amendment proposing the abrogation of such repeal to the voters. Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment would make Florida property taxation more equitable, stimulate the housing and commercial real estate markets and attract investors to the state. Arguments against:Opponents say it would create tax disTitle on Ballot: Property Tax Limitations; Property Value Decline; Reduction For Nonhomestead Assessment Increases; Delay of Scheduled Repeal Sponsor: The Florida Legislature What it would do: Reduce the maximum annual increase in taxable value of non-homestead properties from 10 percent to 5 percent; provide an extra homestead exemption for first-time home buyers; allow lawmakers to prohibit assessment increases for properties with decreasing market values. If you vote yes: A yes vote means you favor the enhanced tax breaks being proposed. If you vote no: A no vote means you are against the enhanced tax breaks being proposed.

Stop in and see why weve been Marion Countys leader for over 34 years! W ith interest and enthusiasm weve followed presidential election campaigns since Thomas Dewey tried to unseat President Harry Truman in 1948. All the pundits and papers believed Mr. Truman couldnt win re-election with a 36 percent approval rating, but he did. Truman ran a brilliant campaign, which included a whistlestop train tour of the nation, with a speech at every stop. Instead of running against the very successful and do-goody Mr. Dewey, Truman campaigned against a do-nothing Republican Congress. On the morning after the election the Chicago Tribune declared Mr. Dewey the winner. Having been re-elected, a smiling President Truman posed for pictures holding up the erroneous Tribune headline. The lesson of the story is what voters tell pollsters who collect approval ratings is not necessarily how they vote on election day. In 2012 our incumbent president Obama couldnt run against a do-nothing Republican House of Representatives while ignoring his own do-nothing Democratic Senate. Instead, he resurrected his vague but successful 2008 campaign of hope and change. In addition to the two mantras which won his first term election, Mr. Obama added some similarly vague enticements for voters social and economic security and adjustment of income and wealth inequality. Scarcity of specifics in Obama campaigns is clever, not accidental. Its a strategy demonstrated by the vacuous comment of then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi when she urged passage of the Patient Protection and Affrordable Care Act (Obamacare): We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it. Re-elect Mr. Obama and well soon find out what he means by hope, change, security, and inequality. The other prong of the Obama re-election campaign has been creation of an effective referendum on challenger Mitt Romney, whose successes as a businessman, governor, and volunteer manager of the troubled 2002 Olympics are depicted as negative qualifications for a president. The Obama campaign has muddled voters perceptions of the private and political Mr. Romney, who has struggled to corral a variety of hard-core conservative constituencies. The primary and persistent Romney theme has been economic growth, job creation, and resuscitation of the middle class. By selecting Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential running mate however, Mr. Romney picked a candidate with specific positions and proposals on every imaginable issue. The Obama campaign must have been overjoyed at the target Mr. Ryan presents. In his most recent book, famous investigative journalist Bob Woodward characterizes Mr. Obama as an uncertain leader and inexperienced administrator, neither of which detracts www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, October 5, 2012 N ewspaper people, at least those who work for reputable organizations, have some rules and standards to follow. One of those states that employees shouldnt get involved in backing any political causes or candidates, no bumper stickers, etc. Thats a good rule. You generally want your newspaper people to be neutral in coverage, and keep opinions to the opinion pages. But I guarantee that the moment Im finished working at a newspaper, Im going to take up a cause, pushing for a federal law change and a state constitutional amendment. My amendment would read as follows: The Do-Not-Call Registry shall apply to all politicians and political causes. Lets face it, we cant count on our legislators to expand the donot-call list, since they are the biggest violators. I have to admit, when I answer the phone at home now, if its a recording, I hang up after about five words. My wifes a little more patient. Shell listen for a while before hanging up. But its annoying when were sitting there watching a TV show or eating dinner (or both), and we have to interrupt our train of thought to answer the phone. When you derail my train of thought, its very hard for me to get back on track. So I definitely want to stop the phone calls, which obviously are going to persist until Nov. 6 (during the primary I received a call just an hour before the polls were supposed to close). I wanted to put another rule into place, so that when the Caller ID says blocked or unknown, I just simply do not answer. But then I discovered that the cell phones of some people I know come across as unknown, so I really cant do that. Evidently Caller ID has not kept up with the cell phone boom. Besides, some of these political calls come in with Caller ID numbers with out-of-state area codes, making them look legitimate. So for now, Ill just live with it. But be forewarned, politicians. If I ever retire, Ill be out on the corner getting petitions signed to expand the do-not-call list. Im coming after you, and I dont think Ill have any trouble getting it passed.

T oday we take a look at Amendments 3 and 4 on the Florida ballot on Nov. 6. These two are somewhat convoluted for voters who have to wade through all the material concerning possible passage. Amendment 3 is titled State Government Revenue Limitation. Sounds good on the surface. It must mean that the state can take less of your money. Well, its not that simple. This calculates how much money the state can get. Proponents say it will enable you to keep money in your pocket, especially in tough times. Opponents say that it can cut revenue so much that the state government can stop operating efficiently. They point to Colorado, of all people, which has a similar law and had some tough times when the economy went south. Feel free to read through this in todays edition, but frankly, it seems like an awful lot of time-wasting, confusing rhetoric. You wont be sure what youre getting if you vote in favor of this (kind of sounds like Obamacare, doesnt it?) so it might be good to just say no. Now for Amendment 4, which has floated around before and been knocked off the ballots by the courts. This time, all that has been corrected and its there for you to vote on. It concerns non-homestead property, in other words, property you own but dont use for your principal residence. It limits the percentage of value that can be increased in the system used to determine the propertys worth. Again, this is one of those that youre not sure what youre getting if you vote for it. You know the saying, if something sounds too good to be true, etc. So when in doubt, again, just vote no. By the way, if you want a good description of the amendments, former County Commissioner Judy Johnson will explain the amendments at the Coalition meeting next Monday, Oct. 8. Maybe we can all learn something. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY More amendments you can reject Do not call should be for politicians Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Time for voters to change their minds is near A centrists viewI have lived in Oak Run since 1995. I am a registered independent/unaffiliated. In June, a pollster asked me two questions. Am I satisfied with the job the President is doing? I answered some yes, some no. If I were to vote today, which candidate would I choose? I answered Ive been a registered Independent for 50 years and often vote for neither Republican or Democrat because I would like to have better choices. This is one of those years. The last three months have changed all that. Every time a Democrat diverts questions about the economy or debt or unrest to Bain or tax returns, they drive me more to the right. If you have a defensible position would you not use it? More recently three episodes on MSNBC closed the deal. First: following Ann Romneys speach at the convention, a three person panel could not find a single nice thing to say about this woman. I switched to FOX just in time to hear Juan Williams (looking bored) write her off as a corporate wife. Nothing nice to say about Ann Romney! Second was a discord about welfare. The Republican was a black man and the Democrat a white woman. After a few shots back and forth, the woman declares I am a Catholic as though that were a supporting factor for welfare. Lets see: a president thats pro contraceptive, pro gay marriage and pro abortion is supported by Catholics? Whats wrong with this picture. Last was a reaction to Romneys tax return. It appears that he gave $4 million to charity and didnt claim it all. The respondent did not praise Romney for donating nearly 30 percent of his income to charity, but rather suggested he would refile after the election and claim a greater deduction. If you are charitable, happily Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED PLEASESEEFLYNN PAGE9 married, successful, religious and somewhat honest, you are a Republican. Some of these are me, how about you? Bill Riola Oak RunMedia bias From one who has voted in presidential elections since 1956, this election cycle is the most one sided Ive ever seen. The so called elite media treats President Obama with kid gloves while Romney is fair game. Its Romney this and Romney that around the clock. While Fox News, the #1 cable channel, covers everything, MSNBC is very selective. Like ignoring the chaos in the middle east which includes Obama and his administrations faulty handling of Benghazigate. It would be nice to have a level playing field but thats not going to happen. Hopefully the (ex) president will soon return to Chicago where he can look at the View. Bob Cronin, Ocala More letters on Page 9 C hances are, if you receive Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or any federal payment, you receive it electronically. More than 90 percent of people getting monthly Social Security benefits already receive electronic payments. If you dont, that will change. There is a U.S. Department of Treasury rule that does away with paper checks for most federal benefit and non-tax payments by March 1, 2013. With a few exceptions, this mandate includes Social Security, SSI, Veterans Affairs, Railroad Retirement Board, Office of Personnel Management benefits, and other non-tax payments. People required to switch have the option of direct deposit to a bank or credit union account or they can have their monthly payment directed into a Direct Express debit card account (Treasurys debit card program). Please visit www.godirect.org to learn more. So, why the push for electronic payments instead of paper checks received in the mail? Theres a list of reasons an electronic payment is better than an old-fashioned paper check. Its safer: no risk of checks being lost or stolen; Its easy and reliable: no waiting for the mail or go to the bank to cash a check; It saves taxpayers money: no cost for postage and paper and printing; Treasury estimates this will save taxpayers $1 billion over 10 years; and Its good for the environment: it saves paper and eliminates the need for physical transportation. If you still get your check in the mail, dont wait for the new rule to go into effect next year sign up for electronic payments now. Please visit www.godirect.org today and begin getting your Social Security and SSI payments the safe, easy, reliable way electronically.Adon Williams is district manager in Ocala for Social Security.

The district is customizing and testing the app now. The free app, called School Connect, is available in the Apple and Android app stores to users of smart phones and other devices. Once users download the free app, they can choose to receive push notifications from any school. Similar to text messages, these notifications can be immediate in case of an emergency. In the future, they may also remind subscribers about early release days, events, athletic competitions, club meetings, and other district and school functions. The app, provided free to the district and users at no taxpayer expense, links to the Parent Portal with student grades, school lunch menus, school addresses and contact information, school web sites, and education-related resources. It also provides GPS mapping and navigation links and multiple language options including Spanish. The app was created by School Connect, an Oklahoma-based mobile app developer for K-12 school systems. Within 24 hours of its initial launch in October 2011, School Connect was a Top 25 free app at the Apple store. To date, the app is available in 93 school districts in eight states including Florida.

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although you love being the focus of attention, its a good idea to take a few steps back right now to just watch the action. What you see can help with an upcoming decision. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Caution continues to be your watchword this week, as a former colleague tries to reconnect old links. There are still some dark places that need to be illuminated. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Making a good first impression is important. Revealing your often hidden sense of humor can help you get through some of the more awkward situations. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Taking that Cancer Crab image too seriously? Lighten up. Instead of complaining about your problems, start resolving them. A friend would be happy to help. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A widening distance between you and that special person needs to be handled with honesty and sensitivity. Dont let jealousy create an even greater gap between you two. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Congratulations. Your handling of a delicate family matter rates kudos. But no resting on your laurels just yet. You still have to resolve that on-the-job problem. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might surprise everyone by being unusually impulsive this week. But even level-headed Libras need to do the unexpected now and then. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A period of turmoil gives way to a calmer, more settled environment. Use this quieter time to patch up neglected personal and/or professional relationships. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A new relationship could create resentment among family and friends who feel left out of your life. Show them you care by making more time for them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Concentrate on completing all your unfinished tasks before deadline. Youll then be able to use this freed-up time to research new career opportunities. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youre right to try to help colleagues resolve their heated differences. But keep your objectivity and avoid showing any favoritism twixt the two sides. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your personal life continues to show positive changes. Enjoy this happy turn of events, by all means. But be careful not to neglect your workplace obligations. BORN THIS WEEK: People of all ages look to you for advice and encouragement. You would make an excellent counselor. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure from his subtle skills as a politician campaigning for re-election. Our guess is that voters will cast their ballots based on disgust with one or the other political party, primarily their inability or unwillingness to solve problems. Does that suggest Romney or Obama? The answer will be in the ballots, not the polls. As President Truman knew well, voters can be persuaded to change their minds. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 A culture of confrontationAmerica has been invaded by a pandemic of personality disorders. We have become a country of sociopathic-narcissists. We have lost our ability to be patient, tolerant and respectful. Humility, once very prevalent, has been replaced with egotism. Our former culture of discussion, concession and compromise has been reduced to a culture of confrontation. I see our country going down with little hope of ever returning to our former more sensible times. Our personality is our characteristic way of thinking, feeling, behaving and relating to others. People with an antisocial (sociopathic) personality disorder act in a way that disregards the feelings and rights of all other people. They usually lie repeatedly, act impulsively, and get into physical fights easily. In short, they care about no one but themselves. People with a narcissistic personality disorder have a grandiose sense of self importance. They seek admiration from others and fantasize about their unlimited success and/or power. They believe themselves to be special, unique and superior to all others. They believe they are above all laws and rules. One group of psychologists has come to the conclusion that people with a sociopathic narcissistic personality can best be described as having no conscience. This group also agrees that people with this multiple personality disorder (lack of a conscience) cannot be cured by any outside means. No amount of therapy will work since these people believe any therapist is beneath them. They must be cured by themselves from within themselves. If you apply this logic to the 550 plus people (the Supreme Court, the House and Senate and the current president) in Washington, D.C., it becomes clear why our country is so screwed up. Each member of these bodies has an agenda. This agenda does not include that whichs best for America and its citizens. They work to satisfy their own beliefs and that of the lobbyists who fill their pockets and to plan for their own re-election. It has been estimated by non-partisan statistic keepers that our politicians spend 30 percent to 70 percent of their time in office planning for their own re-election. The median time is over 50 percent. These are members of both parties. We no longer have any statesmen in our midst; no leadership! Is it any wonder why the rest of our population has become so confrontational? We are following the example set by our leaders. Americans are killing each other at alarming rates. We have children killing parents, parents killing children, siblings killing each other, friends killing each other and most for reasons that we used to be able to talk out. The media (newspapers and television) have also become very partisan. This exacerbates the problem. Unbiased and balanced media outlets no longer exist. Americans now seldom get all of the truth via the media. Remember, reporting only half of the news is every bit as bad as reporting news that is untrue. So sad! While all politicians and members of the media are at the top of my bad list, entertainers and professional sports people, who love to perform for the media, follow closely. They love being on the front page and being the big story. More than any other individuals who have lived during my lifetime, I have admired Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi (known simply as Gandhi), Martin Luther King and Billy Graham. None of these ever bragged how great they were or how lucky the world was to have them. They simply followed their hearts and sacrificed everything for their beliefs of reaching an honorable goal. Although I am not Catholic, the person I admired most was Mother Teresa. She lived the faith that she believed. Wouldnt it be nice to have a Mother Teresa in Washington? George Cipra Oak RunVision or reality? President Obamas supporters fall into two Groups: 1. those who pay taxes on their income; have earned non-entitlements such as, pensions, Social Security, Medicare; may or may not be politically savvy, and, 2. those who receive government entitlements; pay little or no taxes; probably dont care about politics. If Group 1 considers the following three facts, they will be skeptical of the things that Obama tells them. Many in Group 2 will support whomever promises them more free things. 1. Obama didnt deliver the hope and change for America he promised us in 2008. 2. He told Matt Lauer in February, 2009, that if he didnt turn the economy around in three years, he would be a one-term president. Well, here it is almost four years later and our economy is still dismal. 3. Obama hasnt accomplished anything of real substance during his term. Now, Obama suddenly has this vision of America ... and his supporters believe him ... again. Dont they realize he says what he wants them to hear; he distorts facts to enhance his vision? Undistorted facts do not lie! They are so telling that, anyone can understand them. If Obamas supporters ponder the facts ... without playing Obamas numbers games ... it becomes apparent that his vision wont work. These are your choices: Obamas hypothetical vision of America, or Mitt Romneys realities for America. As a writer said in his Sept. 14, 2012 letter, Americas future (is) in our hands, Think before you vote, our future depends on it!

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com The perpetual lie When I was a shop steward for a major union in 1964, I was instructed by the union leadership that the members must vote for Democrats in the election because the Republicans were going to eliminate Social Security for seniors. Our parents and grandparents would go homeless and hungry because of the evil Republicans. That was a lie then as it is today. The SEIU Union (the most frequent visitor to the white house) and the Democrat Party are perpetuating the same lie via commercials on the mass media. Everyone knows that Social Security is going broke, but no one will talk about it because any solution requires some sacrifice or compromise. This country does not like the word sacrifice. The Democrats scoff at any solution to Social Security offered by the opposition, but they have no plan. The best things that happened for retirement was the initiation of the 401K plan .where you contribute a percentage of your income, untaxed, into the plan and the company would match a percentage which also went into your retirement fund. For millions of workers this plan was a solution to retirement woes. This small weekly investment matched by the company grew and became a comfortable nest egg. If I could have invested in a 401K plan early in my work life instead of Social Security, I could have retired a millionaire. Compound interest is a wonderful thing. When voting on Nov. 6, choose the voice of reason, not the voice of perpetual lies. Harold Imgrund Oak Run LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 GUEST COMMENTARIES BY SHELDON RICHMAN Mitt Romney isnt just out of touch; hes also out of sync with the movement to shrink government. In an interview clarifying his now-infamous speech to donors, captured on clandestine video, Romney said, I think people would like to be paying taxes. Come again? He also said, The good news is if you are doing well enough financially that you can pay a tax. Thats good news? Romney apparently had low-income people in mind. But if hed rather see them working than collecting government benefits, the last thing he should want is to reduce the returns to labor which is what income taxation does. Workers should be free to keep the full fruits of their labor. I have an idea for the GOP presidential candidate: Test your belief that people like to pay taxes by proposing to end all penalties for nonpayment. Abolish the IRS. Make taxes voluntary. Then well see who would like to pay and who wouldnt. He says hes for less government. Okay, Mr. Romney, prove it. How many people does he suppose would choose to pay for the occupation of Afghanistan, or the drone attacks on Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia, or the war on certain drug makers, sellers, and consumers? How many would be willing to pay for all the corporate welfare that riddles our so-called free-enterprise system? Speaking of corporate welfare, in his speech Romney had much to say about dependence. There are 47 percent who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. He figures those folks wont be voting for him and his allegedly small-government message. Yet the New York Times reports, The states with the highest percentage of federal filers who do not owe income taxes tend to vote Republican in presidential elections, attributing the information to the Tax Foundation. Research by Dean Lacy, a professor of government at Dartmouth College, has found that states that receive more in federal spending than they pay in taxes have become increasingly Republican in presidential elections. So Romney has the 47 percent wrong. But more important, he overlooks the fact that many low-income people work hard at two or three jobs and are the victims of anticompetitive corporatist policies that build barriers to advancement. But that inconvenient fact aside, low-income people arent the only ones dependent on government. Another group is even more dependent: the people of the corporate world who expect government to provide bailouts, guarantees, and contracts. In the wake of the financial meltdown of 2008, its slightly cruel to stigmatize working-class and poor people who get government benefits, while letting big business and big banks off the hook. Romney supported the financial bailout and, aside from talking vaguely about tax loopholes, does not question the pervasive system of government privilege for big business. The military-industrial complex is a case in point. As author Nick Turse documents, many thousands of American businesses are under contract to the military establishment, making everything from clothing to weapons. Many more invest resources looking for contracts. Private consumers are the losers. If you were to suggest to the corporate executives that they wean their companies from the government, theyd laugh. Its much easier to make your money off the taxpayers rather than take your chances with fickle consumers free to take their business elsewhere. No one has a right to other peoples money. Thats a simple moral precept summed up in the words Thou shalt not steal. Its no less stealing if the government does it for you. Invoking democracy is no help here, because if an individual has no right to steal, it is logically impossible for any group of individuals to have such a right. No matter how many zeros you add together, the sum will be zero. Lets end all dependence on government. Doing it in one fell swoop would be ideal, but short of that, heres a workable strategy: Cut taxes from the bottom up and welfare from the top down. This will move us toward a free society and win popular support along the way.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. Romney, taxes and dependence on government BY ROGER SMITH The election this November will be one of the most important in the lives of todays workers. As CEO of a company that employees more than 5,000 people, I know that the outcome will affect each and every one of them. At virtually every backyard get together these days, most workers discuss and lament the state of the economy. But not in the abstract terms we hear from politicians. These days, the economy is personal. Those who still own homes are relieved that they can still host family and friends, of course. Their homes may be worth less than what they owe, but so far theyve survived The November choice facing workers PLEASESEESMITH PAGE11 wrapped and packed in boxes.

Oak Run TravelOak Run Travel needs a volunteer to coordinate our day trips to interesting places or events in Florida. There are typically 12-15 of these per year and do not include our shows or dinner theatre trips or our casino gambling trips. Examples are the Seafood Festival at Cedar Key, Bok Towers, shopping, Stetson Museum, dog races, etc. An idea person for this volunteer position would be one who suggests potential day trips to the committee and then sees to it that they are scheduled by contacting the venue. Other responsibilities are preparing check requests for payment to the venues and coordinating with the bus coordinator plus preparation of the final trip documents at completion of each trip. This is a very interesting position and can be handled easily by a couple who likes to work together. Current or former hosts are encouraged to consider this as another way to give back to the community. All of our current trip coordinators are also hosts though this is not a prerequisite. Be sure to look over the new fall-winter travel brochure (pink color) that was recently delivered. Pick your trips and get to those sale dates. Following is some information on trips from this brochure. Trip #1 is Sleuths Mystery Dinner Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 17. We have several seats still available; if you like a mystery and food youll love this trip which is only $70 per person. Contact Jim and Patty Waddell to get on the bus before it is sold out. The title for trip #17 should read Florida Mall Shopping as is stated in the description. On trip #21, S Wonderful, the price reduction from $68.50 down to $52 (WOW!) didnt make into the trip description inside the brochure, so take note of that. A little clarification is needed for trip #26, Mid-Week Getaway (2 days). Day one you arrive at the Seminole CasinoImmokalee near Naples and stay at the Hilton Garden Inn where you are treated to a cheese and wine reception followed by dinner and a show at the Broadway Palm. The show is the very funny Menopause the Musical. Day 2, after a full breakfast buffet you stop at the Seminole Casino-Tampa before returning to Oak Run. All of this for just $123 per person. Sale date is Oct. 23. Call Amelia Fiore for more information. Due to complications we are having to reschedule trip #31, Miami Key West, originally planned for Mar. 18-21, 2013. A new date will be announced when we are able to reschedule it. Royal Oaks Ladies 18 Hole GolfOn Tuesday, Sept. 25, we had our fall meeting event. We played a team game, Two Net Best Balls, followed by a delicious soup and salad bar luncheon in the Royal Oaks dining room and then a league meeting. The winning teams of the golf game were: First place Elsa Berbig, Judy Klein, Maureen Edwards, and Carolyn Collins. Second place Pat Blackburn, Salita Timmermeyer, Sheila Adams, and Rhonda LaBlanc. Maureen Edwards was closest to the pin. We also appreciated our golf pro, Lorie Wilkes, for taking time out of her busy schedule to join us for lunch and our meeting. Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn Sept.27 we played T & Fs and handicap. Flight A: Kerry Tims 1st., Elsa Berbig 2nd. and in Flight B: 1st. Cindy Kocher, 2nd. IIene Simnowitz. Closest to pin on #16 was Elsa Berbig and Cindy Kocher had a birdy on #11. Weather is now starting to cool down a little making golf more enjoyable. Royal Oaks Mens GolfSept. 28 was the final tune up for the members as Ryder Cup play starts next week. Thirty-six players played the usual three best net. While the scores were not the best, the golf was played in good conditions on a pleasant day. The winners with a 196 were Dale Wurzburger, Bob Gildea, John Fouty, and Steve Szabo. Tied for second with scores of 206 were the teams of John DeSalvo, Vince Connolly, Jim Kennedy, and Jan Flickinger; and Ron Kowalewski, Gene Topp, Ray Hagerman, and Duke Slayton.

Another million workers wont be so lucky next year. For private sector workers, stagnation and declines in real wages are a stark reality. Statistics show that if workers were paid in direct proportion to productivity gains over the last 12 years, the average wage would hover around $31 per hour instead of $10.28. That would be something to celebrate. Construction workers are frustrated to see so little movement to rebuild our national infrastructure. They are frightened that the Project Labor Agreements they rely on to set fair work terms may soon disappear. Public sector workers are losing their right to collective bargaining and being demonized for having had the audacity to negotiate pension benefits. Our newest entrants to the labor force arent having a much better time. A twentysomething who chooses not to go to college will earn $225,000 less over his lifetime than his sister who did go but shell leave college having racked up tens of thousands of dollars, if not more, in debt. And theyre both probably living with their parents. Workers near retirement, meanwhile, are anxious that they wont come close to maintaining their pre-retirement lifestyle. Theyre also nervous about politicians talk of raising the retirement age, cutting Medicare and limiting Social Security. Somewhere today, a grandfather may tell the unemployed young woman sitting next to him that she cant have his job because he cant afford to retire. For our nations 12 million unemployed workers, many of whom who have been looking for work for 40 weeks or more, the discussion often comes around to asking if anyone knows who is hiring. The entry point into the middle class is nowhere in sight. Those are the conversations youll hear at backyard gatherings. Here are our choices: Will we build an economy that works for workers, or vote to empower the few at the expense of the many? Will we vote to elect a president whose policies are about investing in our future, putting people back to work, rebuilding our nations infrastructure, and honoring a workers right to organize and bargain collectively? Will we insist that Social Security not be placed in the hands of private investment banks? Or will we vote to return to failed economic policies that protect the one percent at the expense of workers? Will we vote yes to proposed budget cuts that will suck demand out of our economy, resulting in millions more joining the ranks of the unemployed? Will we vote to return to outdated, outmoded and out-oftouch policies that serve only a wealthy few? We are at a fork in the road. Between now and November, it is my hope that the conversations we have steer us toward economic recovery. Roger Smith is the President and CEO of American Income Life Insurance Company.

Interfaith Alliance The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County announces that it is sponsoring a community conversation on the value of differences religious, ethnic and cultural at the First Congregational United Church of Christ on Monday, Oct. 8, at 7 p.m. The church is at 7171 State Road 200. 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. Peggy Hostetler, pastor of the Oakbrook Center for Spiritual Living. The event is free and open to the PLEASESEERELIGION PAGE12 A WANTED MAN By Lee Child I n this 17th novel author Lee Child positions his minimalist hero Jack Reacher in very close quartersin fact, in a car speeding across the Midwest. But make no mistake even in this confinement for 125 pages, the suspense is palpable. Jack had been waiting on the side of the road in bitter cold for 93 minutes with cars passing him by, which was not surprising given his gigantic size 5 and his bloody, broken nose. Then a red Toyota stops. Inside are two men and a woman all identically dressed in the same shirt. They tell him theyre coming from a corporate training session and are headed for Chicago. Reachers first suspicion is that the shirts look like something from Dollar Store. Reacher spends his time noting more such details and things that just dont add up. He soon concludes that the two men are kidnappers and the woman is a hostage. The men are Alan King and Don McQueen and the woman is Karen Delfuenso, a cocktail waitress. At some point Reacher is asked to drive and that puts him in front of the backseat hostage who improbably sends him coded messages in the rearview mirror by blinking. Earlier in the evening there had been a murder just off the interstate at a deserted Nebraska pumping station as Reacher learns at various roadblocks. Now he wonders if the men in the car are tied to it. There are a few cutaways to FBI agent Julia Sorenson in Nebraska who is on the case. She and Jack will eventually meet and find themselves two sides of the same coin. Meanwhile, Reacher must plan his own survival and that of the attractive hostage. He thinks, It was technically challenging to take out a guy in the front passenger seat while driving at 80 miles an hour. Plan B is definitely called for. From this point on the action becomes intense but also confusing with an alphabet soup of agencies showing up along with terrorists, all of it increasingly hard to track. Lee Child seems to have created a sub-genre called malefiction with his vigilante protagonist. And Hollywood has been quick to notice. This December Tom Cruise will appear as Jack Reacher in a movie version of an earlier novel One Shot.

Accordingly, we take note of the big event next Wednesday when the National Book Foundation announces winners of its National Book Award, a literary prize given to American writers. Pun Alley presents its own bookish tales. By the book A judge in his golden years decided that retirement had become too boring. So he volunteered as a librarian at a nearby library. A week later, the head librarian, a stern woman in her seventies, called him over to her desk. She said, You know, I appreciate that when you were a judge you were stern with lawbreakers. And you carry that with you to this job, which is very commendable. But when someone owes an overdue fine, you cant just... I had to throw the book at him, said the judge. I know, said the librarian, but the Unabridged Websters International Dictionary?Chicken delightA chicken wandered into a library clucking Buk Buk Bukkook! As a joke the librarian put the Chicken Recipes book on the chickens back. The chicken went out the door and down a path still carrying the book. As she walked past a nearby lake a frog announced, Rrredit Rrredit Rrredit. Hillbilly dilemma I dont know what to give Lizzie for her birthday, one hillbilly said to his friend. Give her a book, suggested the friend. The first one replied, She already has one. Short storiesThe publisher greatly overestimated the potential market for his classic fairy tales book. Now whenever he visits his warehouse, hes faced with many Grimm remainders of his folly. The book about Teflon contained no frictional characters. In the days of Queen Elizabeth I, some ladies-inwaiting liked to curl up with a good book, while others were satisfied with just a few pages. The new book is going like wildfire; everybody is burning it. She was thinking about transferring to a job in the periodicals section of the library until she heard they were dealing with all sorts of issues. Shakespeares plays are nothing but famous quotations strung together. Nowadays a book on How To Be Happy Without Money costs thirty dollars. Check out books at the library. Its a novel idea. Elephants use their trunks as a bookmark so they always nose where they stopped reading. Is a book on voyeurism a peeping tome? I just finished a fascinating book, Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Centipedes. It was good reading, but about 60 percent of the book is footnotes. Sitting in the sun reading a book this last summer, a lot of folks became well red. By the time a man can read a woman like a book hes too old to start a library.Coming up dryA 10-year old boy was looking for a book and asked the librarian how to spell tequila. She answered t-e-q-u-l-a. The boy thanked her and went back to his search. A short time later he came to the desk. I just cant find it, he said. What book are you looking for? the librarian asked. The boy replied, Tequila Mockingbird.Computer literate A newly enrolled student walked into the college library to use one of the computers and noticed the encyclopedia volumes stacked on a bookshelf. What are all these books? he asked. Somewhat surprised, the librarian replied that they were encyclopedias. Really? he said. Someone printed out the whole thing? Mac library?A blonde went into the library and said, Id like a cheeseburger, fries, and a coke. The librarian informed her that she was in a library. So the blonde leaned across the counter and whispered to the librarian, Id like a cheeseburger, fries, and a coke. JokersCongress will soon vote on whether to rename the Smithsonian Library the Bob Hope Library. Before he died he donated all his radio and television monologues to the Smithsonian. Over the years only the voters have sent more jokes to Washington.Doctored pagesA surgeon went to return some books he borrowed from the library. The librarian quipped after checking the books, Sir, your books were returned with the last page missing in every single book. The surgeon replied, I cant stop myself from removing an appendix whenever I see one. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com If I heard it once, I have heard it a million times and this week was no exception. In fact, the words carelessly tumble from my lips on many occasions, some of which have been perilously near the conclusion of my sermons. Most preachers never conclude their sermons, they just quit when they cannot indulge the congregation another minute longer. Someone once asked a famous preacher what it meant when he said, Now, in conclusion ... He thought for a moment and then replied, Nothing. Preachers are not the only ones inflicted with this verbosity virus. Watching a news broadcast recently, I heard a politician tumble headlong into the same abyss; Were going to make some changes around here, he proclaimed, and thats my final word on the subject. It does not really matter which politician pontificated thusly, for all of them have said it at one time or another and usually it is never their final word on any subject. Several things are wrong with that statement. First, when a politician uses the word were he never means to include himself. It is just a word he uses to confuse the subject at hand. Someone once made this observation, if all the politicians were laid end to end I would not be surprised. Secondly, the only change most politicians are interested in is the change in my pocket. They have committees devoted to figuring out how they can change the change in my pocket to their pocket. The slickness to which they do this is most remarkable. Thirdly, there is no such thing as a final word among politicians. Every politician insists on having the last word on any subject even though he knows nothing about the subject at hand. It is rumored by some unidentified source that the entire political sorority has one brain, which they share. The Democrats have the left side, the Republicans have the right side and they have one intent; mouth in motion at all times. Since they share the same mouth, they both sound alike. When a politician has nothing to say you can be sure he will say it most profusely. Today, the only difference between a Republican and a Democrat is the spelling. One can spell and the other cannot. Every politician has two faces, before the election and after election. What a politician says before being elected has absolutely no relationship with what he or she will say after the election. The only thing absolutely certain is the newly elected politician will have a lot to say, but not much. Once elected their only strategy is to stay elected. They will do everything and anything to get my vote. One thing that can be said about the political institution in our country, it is an equal opportunity liars club. Women have as much opportunity to join this truth-challenged extravaganza as the men. I do not know who makes better liars, men or women. The feminine side of this auspicious group has made a miraculous progress in catching up to their male counterparts. They both seemed quite adept in the practice. Many elected officials go to great lengths to keep their constituency from knowing where they stand on the issues. They are seated on committees so they do not have to reveal where they stand. They are good at sitting and pontificating but bad when it comes to standing for anything, which makes them believe their constituency will fall for anything. And we usually do. The lawmakers of our day are great change agents, to use a contemporary phrase. Their opinion on important issues changes with every new poll published. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on your point of view, for our friendly politicians, opinion polls can be given every hour on the hour. Of course, the more important the issue the more the politician reforms his opinion. A politician should have the cleanest mind in our country because they change it so much. Unfortunately, the exchange is usually down. Perhaps the best final words any politician could utter are, I wont run again. Usually when a politician says this, it means he is currently running from something or someone. Regrettably, the only change that comes with a new election is the name on the office door of the public servant. The bolts and nuts of our political system can be boiled down to; the politicians bolt for or from any excuse and we are nuts for electing them to any office. I sometimes get weary of all this superfluous change. It is true; the more things change the more they remain the same. What I want to change never does and what I do not want to change does. You can imagine what comfort I get from the Bible that never changes despite the efforts of some people. Two verses are particularly comforting to me. One from the Old Testament: For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. (Malachi 3:6 KJV.) One from the New Testament: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 KJV.) When it comes to final words, I want that word to come from someone who will not capriciously change that word and upset my life. I can always trust Jesus Christ to give me a word I can always count on. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Margaret lived through the First World War and the flu epidemic that followed. She raised children during the Great Depression and worked hard through the Second World War. Added to these were Korea; Vietnam and numerous comparatively minor military skirmishes up until the War on Terror. She saw the towers fall on Sept. 11 and wept along with everyone else. From the early days of flight to landing a man on the moon, Margaret saw it all. From her yard outside her home in Astor, she watched in horror as the Challenger Space Shuttle blew apart in the cool crisp blue sky. She still recalls her feelings of despair at that horrible event. It would take a book to relate all of the wonderful things and difficult times that Margaret has been through. She rejoices in the fact that she has had two wonderful men in her life; two beautiful and loving daughters and a host of family members that still keep in touch with her. To what does she credit her long life? She never smoked or drank, she tells me, but she loves chocolate. Margaret is a treasure to her family; to her friends and to this community. Shes a joy to be around and she and her daughter Shirley still enjoy going to dinner with our Cherrywood Singles Club on Sundays. Look for her in the near future on the Today Show and if you get the chance, when you see her out and about, wish her a very Happy Birthday. From Your ReporterBeing your humble correspondent is a privilege and an honor because I get to meet so many nice people. Usually these meetings take place at the dances; dinners; sports events; health activities or other happy times. This week, I had a particular honor however; an interview with Margaret Kender and her wonderful daughter, Shirley Skaggs. Margaret soon will turn 104 years of age. She is a remarkable woman who is an inspiration to be around; converse with; and listen to. Her daughter Shirley is an equally engaging individual who shares her Mothers wit; wisdom and dignity. My personal thanks goes out to these two ladies for giving me the opportunity to get to know them and to write about them. I would join with her family and friends in wishing Margaret a very Happy Birthday. If you have any suggestions or comments for this column please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. W hile the Jewish religion has many seemingly obscure and non-rational rules and customs, one of the strangest is the one of shatnetz, that is of mixing different elements together that are unnatural. For instance, we have the kosher law of not mixing milk products with meat, i.e. a cheeseburger is off the list for an observant Jew. There is also the prohibition of yoking a donkey and an ox together to say, plow a field. One could argue that putting those two animals together would produce unnecessary strain and pathos for the donkey, which could be a reason for the law while the kosher law, has been reasoned to be a plea for kindness to animals. In actuality, there is really no concrete reason for these laws just as the one for shatnetz or the mixture of fibers, linen with wool. The shatnetz prohibition is found in Leviticus 19:19 and Deuteronomy 22:25 and 22:9-11. It is just one of those laws called Chok, a Torah law where a rationale is not obviously apparent. All garments need to be checked so that the fibers of the linen (flax) and wool are not put together in the same garment. Most Jews are hardly aware of this law, but for the very observant, careful examination of the fabrics used in clothes construction is a must. To fulfill this need, a series of shatnetz labs are located around the country, usually in areas where there is a concentration of Orthodox Jewish people. In the U.S., Holocaust survivor, Joseph Rosenberger, set up the first shatnetz lab in Brooklyn, New York, in 1941. Now there are checkers and labs devoted to the practice of finding shatnetz all over the country. The Shatnetz Testers of America and the National Committee of Shatnetz Testers and Researchers are two organizations that publicize and promote the ancient practice. Both men and women can be shatnetz checkers. Since most of the garments checked are made of wool, the checkers are mainly looking for the presence of linen. If linen is found and can be removed from the garment, then the item is ok to be worn, if not, it may have to be discarded. Shatnetz training for women tends to be more complicated due to the different rules women need to follow. Certification in the process takes two years with the final ok given by a rabbi who deals with the process. Once a person is certified, he/she can check for shatnetz and a report is sent to the rabbi in charge of this custom. After reading the report sent to the rabbi, he signs off on it and the garment is rendered shatnetzfree for the client. Higher end garments tend to have more problems with shatnetz than cheaper ones because the more expensive goods use more natural fibers. While the labels on womens clothing state the fabrics, special attention has to be made to the trims since embroidery, brocades and the like could contain shatnetz. The seemingly most innocuous parts of a garment can also be suspect as in the case of a supposedly shatnetz-free custom made suit which was discovered to have linen in the collar facing. If linen is discovered in a woolen suit, the piece can usually be replaced by a synthetic material since the linen is usually found in collars or cuffs or used as interfacing in the garment. It is the thread of linen that the checkers look for and substitute whenever possible. The individual thread is examined and divided into fibers under a microscope to determine if it is shatnetz. It is permissible to use mixed fibers in furniture stuffing, baseball gloves and the like. At least, the materials are not going to waste. To bring all this to home, my tallit (prayer shawl), which came from Israel, had a shatnetz-free label on it. I believe the garment is made of synthetic fibers but it was still interesting to have the label claiming it was checked for shatnetz by the rabbinical authority of Haifa, Israel. Now, just when you thought it was safe to buy a new suit or outfit, I should inform you, that wearing a pigskin jacket is completely kosher, according to Rabbi Shmuel Kogan of Chabad Organization. Since the hide is tanned, there are no impurities to render it forbidden to Jews. Go figure!

steering wheels of new cars. Her salary of $25 a week, was very good money in the day. Joseph and Margaret were blessed with two daughters; Shirley and Marguerite. Between the two of them, they have given Margaret four grandchildren and five great grandchildren. During those early years, Margaret recalls suffering through the depression like so many others. She had borrowed money from her mother to make the down payment on a house but in order to make the payments; they needed to sell their car. With two daughters in tow, Margaret would walk to Holy Name Catholic Church; walk or take a streetcar to the shops and stores. Her husband, Joseph walked to work for eight years just to provide for his family. When you consider the hard, cold winters of Ohio that was no easy feat for either of them. Shirley, Margarets daughter comments that she and her sister never knew they were poor. This is a feeling conveyed by so many children of the Depression era, Parents kept their needs very private and gave their children a sense of well being and security. Margaret and Joseph excelled at this. Thirty two years passed and Joseph died at the age of 54. The family was devastated at the loss but continued to stay close. Margaret continually praises her daughters and brags on them with love and affection. One day in Ohio, Margaret was attending the funeral of a friend who had passed away. A man came up to her and asked, Arent you Margaret Liphart? Taken somewhat aback, she replied that she had been and then asked the stranger, Do I know you? Well you should, he answered, I carried your books for you back in school. The man was William Kender and Margaret and he had been in grade school together. That was 50 years prior to this meeting. While William had family ties in Ohio, he was living in New York in a small suburb of Buffalo called Lawton. Several visits back to Ohio and some long distance correspondence later, Margaret and William got married. Reluctantly, she moved to New York and they took up residence in Lawton. That was in 1969. William and Margaret bought a trailer and began to be snowbirds. They both loved Florida and William loved to fish. Finally, in 1977, they had had enough of the cold weather up North. They took up residence in Astor, next to the St. Johns River. For the next 20 years they lived there in peace and love until William passed away. Margaret used to walk four miles a day down the dirt road near their home. At age of 88, while watering the lawn, she tripped over the hose and fell, breaking her hip. She half smiles as she describes lying helplessly in the water and sand. Eventually a neighbor came by and was able to get her some help. All that happened in 1997 and Margaret moved in with her daughter Shirley here at Cherrywood. She uses a walker; has hearing aids and wears glasses but she looks and acts like a woman in her 60s or 70s. Her mind is sharp and she has a quick and easy smile that lights up a room. She has survived many things in her more than a cenC herrywoods 100 Days of Summer closed out its season with the biggest and best Octoberfest celebration ever. The concluding event of the season brought out a record number of residents to enjoy a delicious bratwurst dinner; to dance and sway to the Northern Sounds band and to celebrate this traditional German festival. Last month, 250 residents came out to party and we were hoping for at least 251 for Octoberfest in order to set a record. In fact, 265 people showed up, so we easily broke the record and set a new attendance standard. In spite of the large turnout, all of our guests were served their meal within 50 minutes. This was a testament to the organizational skills of Cherrywood Social Committee Chairman Jay OHern and his staff. After dining on Bratwurst that was cooked to perfection on the grills, not to mention the other side dishes; the guests turned their attention to the Northern Sounds band. This group is made up of multi-talented performers who have a vast repertoire of songs at their disposal. People danced; sang along with the drinking songs; swayed back and forth to the beat of the music and in general just enjoyed the atmosphere. The entire evening was free to our residents thanks to Cherrywood Property Management and Chris and Mario Zacco. Mario showed up to pass out the awards to our raffle winners. Joanne Lauder won the dinner gift card; while Christi Giovanniello; Bill and Lorraine Lavertue all won 50/50 drawings. The big winner was Marion County Hospice which will receive $162 from the proceeds of the raffles. These events would not be possible and certainly would not go as smoothly without the help of a dedicated staff. Working in the kitchen with Jay were Beverly Idone; SanDee Spencer; Peggy Konar; and Donna James. Our grill masters were Bill Brotherhood and Dave Siegel. General support and handling the drinks were Marty Duesel; Bill Mahar; Gene Wachsmuth; Fred OHern and Mick James. Rich and Monica Becotte handled the very successful 50/50 tickets for the nights festivities. Planning and coordination are the keys to any successful event and this one was no exception. Serving with Jay OHern to put this entire evening together was his brother Fred and the CWPM Staff including Geri; Justin; Fred; and Doug. All of our volunteers are to be congratulated and thanked for their diligence and outstanding performance on Saturday night.

Spotlight on 104 Years of ExcellenceOn Oct. 30, 1908, in the small town of Dayton, Ohio, a little girl by the name of Margaret Liphart was born. She was one of five children in the family and probably, with the exception of friends and immediate relatives, her birth went unheralded and barely noticed. Margarets father, Andrew, was from Hungary and never learned to speak English. Being a mason, he was well suited for the construction industry and earned his living in that field. Her mother, Elizabeth, stayed at home raising the five children. In those early days, milkmen delivered their bottles to the door step by horsedrawn carriages; ice men delivered blocks of ice for the new fangled ice boxes; and Wilbur and Orville Wright worked down the street in their lab. Margaret still remembers walking to school and Orville standing out in front of the shop. He would always speak to her but fearing he was flirting, she never answered. At 16 years of age, Margaret went to work for a tobacco company in Dayton. She operated a machine that manufactured cigars. After a short time, a girl friend encouraged her to go to work for General Motors and Margaret took the opportunity to apply for the job. She worked at GM for seven years and during that time she met a man by the name of Joseph Balogh. While out driving one day, Margaret and Joseph were with another couple. Off on a deserted field that later became Wright Airport, sat a single engine biplane. Margarets girl friend was afraid to go up in it and after some taunting; she dared Margaret to give it a try. Fearless, she got into the two seat cockpit and flew for the first time in her life. The questioned begged so I asked her, How did you like it? With a wry smile on her face, Margaret answered, It wasnt the best thing. Joseph was an avid sports enthusiast who was quite an accomplished baseball pitcher. He was so good in fact that Dayton Rubber recruited him for their company team and provided him with a supervisors position with the company. The pair courted and in 1928 when Margaret turned 20 years of age, she and Joseph were married. She continued working at GM shipping wood for the SEE CHERRYWOOD PAGE18 000CRJQ Mon.

Spotlight on 104 Years of ExcellenceOn Oct. 30, 1908, in the small town of Dayton, Ohio, a little girl by the name of Margaret Liphart was born. She was one of five children in the family and probably, with the exception of friends and immediate relatives, her birth went unheralded and barely noticed. Margarets father, Andrew, was from Hungary and never learned to speak English. Being a mason, he was well suited for the construction industry and earned his living in that field. Her mother, Elizabeth, stayed at home raising the five children. In those early days, milkmen delivered their bottles to the door step by horsedrawn carriages; ice men delivered blocks of ice for the new fangled ice boxes; and Wilbur and Orville Wright worked down the street in their lab. Margaret still remembers walking to school and Orville standing out in front of the shop. He would always speak to her but fearing he was flirting, she never answered. At 16 years of age, Margaret went to work for a tobacco company in Dayton. She operated a machine that manufactured cigars. After a short time, a girl friend encouraged her to go to work for General Motors and Margaret took the opportunity to apply for the job. She worked at GM for seven years and during that time she met a man by the name of Joseph Balogh. While out driving one day, Margaret and Joseph were with another couple. Off on a deserted field that later became Wright Airport, sat a single engine biplane. Margarets girl friend was afraid to go up in it and after some taunting; she dared Margaret to give it a try. Fearless, she got into the two seat cockpit and flew for the first time in her life. The questioned begged so I asked her, How did you like it? With a wry smile on her face, Margaret answered, It wasnt the best thing. Joseph was an avid sports enthusiast who was quite an accomplished baseball pitcher. He was so good in fact that Dayton Rubber recruited him for their company team and provided him with a supervisors position with the company. The pair courted and in 1928 when Margaret turned 20 years of age, she and Joseph were married. She continued working at GM shipping wood for the SEE CHERRYWOOD PAGE18 000CRJQ Mon.

steering wheels of new cars. Her salary of $25 a week, was very good money in the day. Joseph and Margaret were blessed with two daughters; Shirley and Marguerite. Between the two of them, they have given Margaret four grandchildren and five great grandchildren. During those early years, Margaret recalls suffering through the depression like so many others. She had borrowed money from her mother to make the down payment on a house but in order to make the payments; they needed to sell their car. With two daughters in tow, Margaret would walk to Holy Name Catholic Church; walk or take a streetcar to the shops and stores. Her husband, Joseph walked to work for eight years just to provide for his family. When you consider the hard, cold winters of Ohio that was no easy feat for either of them. Shirley, Margarets daughter comments that she and her sister never knew they were poor. This is a feeling conveyed by so many children of the Depression era, Parents kept their needs very private and gave their children a sense of well being and security. Margaret and Joseph excelled at this. Thirty two years passed and Joseph died at the age of 54. The family was devastated at the loss but continued to stay close. Margaret continually praises her daughters and brags on them with love and affection. One day in Ohio, Margaret was attending the funeral of a friend who had passed away. A man came up to her and asked, Arent you Margaret Liphart? Taken somewhat aback, she replied that she had been and then asked the stranger, Do I know you? Well you should, he answered, I carried your books for you back in school. The man was William Kender and Margaret and he had been in grade school together. That was 50 years prior to this meeting. While William had family ties in Ohio, he was living in New York in a small suburb of Buffalo called Lawton. Several visits back to Ohio and some long distance correspondence later, Margaret and William got married. Reluctantly, she moved to New York and they took up residence in Lawton. That was in 1969. William and Margaret bought a trailer and began to be snowbirds. They both loved Florida and William loved to fish. Finally, in 1977, they had had enough of the cold weather up North. They took up residence in Astor, next to the St. Johns River. For the next 20 years they lived there in peace and love until William passed away. Margaret used to walk four miles a day down the dirt road near their home. At age of 88, while watering the lawn, she tripped over the hose and fell, breaking her hip. She half smiles as she describes lying helplessly in the water and sand. Eventually a neighbor came by and was able to get her some help. All that happened in 1997 and Margaret moved in with her daughter Shirley here at Cherrywood. She uses a walker; has hearing aids and wears glasses but she looks and acts like a woman in her 60s or 70s. Her mind is sharp and she has a quick and easy smile that lights up a room. She has survived many things in her more than a cenC herrywoods 100 Days of Summer closed out its season with the biggest and best Octoberfest celebration ever. The concluding event of the season brought out a record number of residents to enjoy a delicious bratwurst dinner; to dance and sway to the Northern Sounds band and to celebrate this traditional German festival. Last month, 250 residents came out to party and we were hoping for at least 251 for Octoberfest in order to set a record. In fact, 265 people showed up, so we easily broke the record and set a new attendance standard. In spite of the large turnout, all of our guests were served their meal within 50 minutes. This was a testament to the organizational skills of Cherrywood Social Committee Chairman Jay OHern and his staff. After dining on Bratwurst that was cooked to perfection on the grills, not to mention the other side dishes; the guests turned their attention to the Northern Sounds band. This group is made up of multi-talented performers who have a vast repertoire of songs at their disposal. People danced; sang along with the drinking songs; swayed back and forth to the beat of the music and in general just enjoyed the atmosphere. The entire evening was free to our residents thanks to Cherrywood Property Management and Chris and Mario Zacco. Mario showed up to pass out the awards to our raffle winners. Joanne Lauder won the dinner gift card; while Christi Giovanniello; Bill and Lorraine Lavertue all won 50/50 drawings. The big winner was Marion County Hospice which will receive $162 from the proceeds of the raffles. These events would not be possible and certainly would not go as smoothly without the help of a dedicated staff. Working in the kitchen with Jay were Beverly Idone; SanDee Spencer; Peggy Konar; and Donna James. Our grill masters were Bill Brotherhood and Dave Siegel. General support and handling the drinks were Marty Duesel; Bill Mahar; Gene Wachsmuth; Fred OHern and Mick James. Rich and Monica Becotte handled the very successful 50/50 tickets for the nights festivities. Planning and coordination are the keys to any successful event and this one was no exception. Serving with Jay OHern to put this entire evening together was his brother Fred and the CWPM Staff including Geri; Justin; Fred; and Doug. All of our volunteers are to be congratulated and thanked for their diligence and outstanding performance on Saturday night.

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com If I heard it once, I have heard it a million times and this week was no exception. In fact, the words carelessly tumble from my lips on many occasions, some of which have been perilously near the conclusion of my sermons. Most preachers never conclude their sermons, they just quit when they cannot indulge the congregation another minute longer. Someone once asked a famous preacher what it meant when he said, Now, in conclusion ... He thought for a moment and then replied, Nothing. Preachers are not the only ones inflicted with this verbosity virus. Watching a news broadcast recently, I heard a politician tumble headlong into the same abyss; Were going to make some changes around here, he proclaimed, and thats my final word on the subject. It does not really matter which politician pontificated thusly, for all of them have said it at one time or another and usually it is never their final word on any subject. Several things are wrong with that statement. First, when a politician uses the word were he never means to include himself. It is just a word he uses to confuse the subject at hand. Someone once made this observation, if all the politicians were laid end to end I would not be surprised. Secondly, the only change most politicians are interested in is the change in my pocket. They have committees devoted to figuring out how they can change the change in my pocket to their pocket. The slickness to which they do this is most remarkable. Thirdly, there is no such thing as a final word among politicians. Every politician insists on having the last word on any subject even though he knows nothing about the subject at hand. It is rumored by some unidentified source that the entire political sorority has one brain, which they share. The Democrats have the left side, the Republicans have the right side and they have one intent; mouth in motion at all times. Since they share the same mouth, they both sound alike. When a politician has nothing to say you can be sure he will say it most profusely. Today, the only difference between a Republican and a Democrat is the spelling. One can spell and the other cannot. Every politician has two faces, before the election and after election. What a politician says before being elected has absolutely no relationship with what he or she will say after the election. The only thing absolutely certain is the newly elected politician will have a lot to say, but not much. Once elected their only strategy is to stay elected. They will do everything and anything to get my vote. One thing that can be said about the political institution in our country, it is an equal opportunity liars club. Women have as much opportunity to join this truth-challenged extravaganza as the men. I do not know who makes better liars, men or women. The feminine side of this auspicious group has made a miraculous progress in catching up to their male counterparts. They both seemed quite adept in the practice. Many elected officials go to great lengths to keep their constituency from knowing where they stand on the issues. They are seated on committees so they do not have to reveal where they stand. They are good at sitting and pontificating but bad when it comes to standing for anything, which makes them believe their constituency will fall for anything. And we usually do. The lawmakers of our day are great change agents, to use a contemporary phrase. Their opinion on important issues changes with every new poll published. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on your point of view, for our friendly politicians, opinion polls can be given every hour on the hour. Of course, the more important the issue the more the politician reforms his opinion. A politician should have the cleanest mind in our country because they change it so much. Unfortunately, the exchange is usually down. Perhaps the best final words any politician could utter are, I wont run again. Usually when a politician says this, it means he is currently running from something or someone. Regrettably, the only change that comes with a new election is the name on the office door of the public servant. The bolts and nuts of our political system can be boiled down to; the politicians bolt for or from any excuse and we are nuts for electing them to any office. I sometimes get weary of all this superfluous change. It is true; the more things change the more they remain the same. What I want to change never does and what I do not want to change does. You can imagine what comfort I get from the Bible that never changes despite the efforts of some people. Two verses are particularly comforting to me. One from the Old Testament: For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. (Malachi 3:6 KJV.) One from the New Testament: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 KJV.) When it comes to final words, I want that word to come from someone who will not capriciously change that word and upset my life. I can always trust Jesus Christ to give me a word I can always count on. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Margaret lived through the First World War and the flu epidemic that followed. She raised children during the Great Depression and worked hard through the Second World War. Added to these were Korea; Vietnam and numerous comparatively minor military skirmishes up until the War on Terror. She saw the towers fall on Sept. 11 and wept along with everyone else. From the early days of flight to landing a man on the moon, Margaret saw it all. From her yard outside her home in Astor, she watched in horror as the Challenger Space Shuttle blew apart in the cool crisp blue sky. She still recalls her feelings of despair at that horrible event. It would take a book to relate all of the wonderful things and difficult times that Margaret has been through. She rejoices in the fact that she has had two wonderful men in her life; two beautiful and loving daughters and a host of family members that still keep in touch with her. To what does she credit her long life? She never smoked or drank, she tells me, but she loves chocolate. Margaret is a treasure to her family; to her friends and to this community. Shes a joy to be around and she and her daughter Shirley still enjoy going to dinner with our Cherrywood Singles Club on Sundays. Look for her in the near future on the Today Show and if you get the chance, when you see her out and about, wish her a very Happy Birthday. From Your ReporterBeing your humble correspondent is a privilege and an honor because I get to meet so many nice people. Usually these meetings take place at the dances; dinners; sports events; health activities or other happy times. This week, I had a particular honor however; an interview with Margaret Kender and her wonderful daughter, Shirley Skaggs. Margaret soon will turn 104 years of age. She is a remarkable woman who is an inspiration to be around; converse with; and listen to. Her daughter Shirley is an equally engaging individual who shares her Mothers wit; wisdom and dignity. My personal thanks goes out to these two ladies for giving me the opportunity to get to know them and to write about them. I would join with her family and friends in wishing Margaret a very Happy Birthday. If you have any suggestions or comments for this column please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. W hile the Jewish religion has many seemingly obscure and non-rational rules and customs, one of the strangest is the one of shatnetz, that is of mixing different elements together that are unnatural. For instance, we have the kosher law of not mixing milk products with meat, i.e. a cheeseburger is off the list for an observant Jew. There is also the prohibition of yoking a donkey and an ox together to say, plow a field. One could argue that putting those two animals together would produce unnecessary strain and pathos for the donkey, which could be a reason for the law while the kosher law, has been reasoned to be a plea for kindness to animals. In actuality, there is really no concrete reason for these laws just as the one for shatnetz or the mixture of fibers, linen with wool. The shatnetz prohibition is found in Leviticus 19:19 and Deuteronomy 22:25 and 22:9-11. It is just one of those laws called Chok, a Torah law where a rationale is not obviously apparent. All garments need to be checked so that the fibers of the linen (flax) and wool are not put together in the same garment. Most Jews are hardly aware of this law, but for the very observant, careful examination of the fabrics used in clothes construction is a must. To fulfill this need, a series of shatnetz labs are located around the country, usually in areas where there is a concentration of Orthodox Jewish people. In the U.S., Holocaust survivor, Joseph Rosenberger, set up the first shatnetz lab in Brooklyn, New York, in 1941. Now there are checkers and labs devoted to the practice of finding shatnetz all over the country. The Shatnetz Testers of America and the National Committee of Shatnetz Testers and Researchers are two organizations that publicize and promote the ancient practice. Both men and women can be shatnetz checkers. Since most of the garments checked are made of wool, the checkers are mainly looking for the presence of linen. If linen is found and can be removed from the garment, then the item is ok to be worn, if not, it may have to be discarded. Shatnetz training for women tends to be more complicated due to the different rules women need to follow. Certification in the process takes two years with the final ok given by a rabbi who deals with the process. Once a person is certified, he/she can check for shatnetz and a report is sent to the rabbi in charge of this custom. After reading the report sent to the rabbi, he signs off on it and the garment is rendered shatnetzfree for the client. Higher end garments tend to have more problems with shatnetz than cheaper ones because the more expensive goods use more natural fibers. While the labels on womens clothing state the fabrics, special attention has to be made to the trims since embroidery, brocades and the like could contain shatnetz. The seemingly most innocuous parts of a garment can also be suspect as in the case of a supposedly shatnetz-free custom made suit which was discovered to have linen in the collar facing. If linen is discovered in a woolen suit, the piece can usually be replaced by a synthetic material since the linen is usually found in collars or cuffs or used as interfacing in the garment. It is the thread of linen that the checkers look for and substitute whenever possible. The individual thread is examined and divided into fibers under a microscope to determine if it is shatnetz. It is permissible to use mixed fibers in furniture stuffing, baseball gloves and the like. At least, the materials are not going to waste. To bring all this to home, my tallit (prayer shawl), which came from Israel, had a shatnetz-free label on it. I believe the garment is made of synthetic fibers but it was still interesting to have the label claiming it was checked for shatnetz by the rabbinical authority of Haifa, Israel. Now, just when you thought it was safe to buy a new suit or outfit, I should inform you, that wearing a pigskin jacket is completely kosher, according to Rabbi Shmuel Kogan of Chabad Organization. Since the hide is tanned, there are no impurities to render it forbidden to Jews. Go figure!

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com P un Alley readers are obviously fond of good literature. Accordingly, we take note of the big event next Wednesday when the National Book Foundation announces winners of its National Book Award, a literary prize given to American writers. Pun Alley presents its own bookish tales. By the book A judge in his golden years decided that retirement had become too boring. So he volunteered as a librarian at a nearby library. A week later, the head librarian, a stern woman in her seventies, called him over to her desk. She said, You know, I appreciate that when you were a judge you were stern with lawbreakers. And you carry that with you to this job, which is very commendable. But when someone owes an overdue fine, you cant just... I had to throw the book at him, said the judge. I know, said the librarian, but the Unabridged Websters International Dictionary?Chicken delightA chicken wandered into a library clucking Buk Buk Bukkook! As a joke the librarian put the Chicken Recipes book on the chickens back. The chicken went out the door and down a path still carrying the book. As she walked past a nearby lake a frog announced, Rrredit Rrredit Rrredit. Hillbilly dilemma I dont know what to give Lizzie for her birthday, one hillbilly said to his friend. Give her a book, suggested the friend. The first one replied, She already has one. Short storiesThe publisher greatly overestimated the potential market for his classic fairy tales book. Now whenever he visits his warehouse, hes faced with many Grimm remainders of his folly. The book about Teflon contained no frictional characters. In the days of Queen Elizabeth I, some ladies-inwaiting liked to curl up with a good book, while others were satisfied with just a few pages. The new book is going like wildfire; everybody is burning it. She was thinking about transferring to a job in the periodicals section of the library until she heard they were dealing with all sorts of issues. Shakespeares plays are nothing but famous quotations strung together. Nowadays a book on How To Be Happy Without Money costs thirty dollars. Check out books at the library. Its a novel idea. Elephants use their trunks as a bookmark so they always nose where they stopped reading. Is a book on voyeurism a peeping tome? I just finished a fascinating book, Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Centipedes. It was good reading, but about 60 percent of the book is footnotes. Sitting in the sun reading a book this last summer, a lot of folks became well red. By the time a man can read a woman like a book hes too old to start a library.Coming up dryA 10-year old boy was looking for a book and asked the librarian how to spell tequila. She answered t-e-q-u-l-a. The boy thanked her and went back to his search. A short time later he came to the desk. I just cant find it, he said. What book are you looking for? the librarian asked. The boy replied, Tequila Mockingbird.Computer literate A newly enrolled student walked into the college library to use one of the computers and noticed the encyclopedia volumes stacked on a bookshelf. What are all these books? he asked. Somewhat surprised, the librarian replied that they were encyclopedias. Really? he said. Someone printed out the whole thing? Mac library?A blonde went into the library and said, Id like a cheeseburger, fries, and a coke. The librarian informed her that she was in a library. So the blonde leaned across the counter and whispered to the librarian, Id like a cheeseburger, fries, and a coke. JokersCongress will soon vote on whether to rename the Smithsonian Library the Bob Hope Library. Before he died he donated all his radio and television monologues to the Smithsonian. Over the years only the voters have sent more jokes to Washington.Doctored pagesA surgeon went to return some books he borrowed from the library. The librarian quipped after checking the books, Sir, your books were returned with the last page missing in every single book. The surgeon replied, I cant stop myself from removing an appendix whenever I see one. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Another million workers wont be so lucky next year. For private sector workers, stagnation and declines in real wages are a stark reality. Statistics show that if workers were paid in direct proportion to productivity gains over the last 12 years, the average wage would hover around $31 per hour instead of $10.28. That would be something to celebrate. Construction workers are frustrated to see so little movement to rebuild our national infrastructure. They are frightened that the Project Labor Agreements they rely on to set fair work terms may soon disappear. Public sector workers are losing their right to collective bargaining and being demonized for having had the audacity to negotiate pension benefits. Our newest entrants to the labor force arent having a much better time. A twentysomething who chooses not to go to college will earn $225,000 less over his lifetime than his sister who did go but shell leave college having racked up tens of thousands of dollars, if not more, in debt. And theyre both probably living with their parents. Workers near retirement, meanwhile, are anxious that they wont come close to maintaining their pre-retirement lifestyle. Theyre also nervous about politicians talk of raising the retirement age, cutting Medicare and limiting Social Security. Somewhere today, a grandfather may tell the unemployed young woman sitting next to him that she cant have his job because he cant afford to retire. For our nations 12 million unemployed workers, many of whom who have been looking for work for 40 weeks or more, the discussion often comes around to asking if anyone knows who is hiring. The entry point into the middle class is nowhere in sight. Those are the conversations youll hear at backyard gatherings. Here are our choices: Will we build an economy that works for workers, or vote to empower the few at the expense of the many? Will we vote to elect a president whose policies are about investing in our future, putting people back to work, rebuilding our nations infrastructure, and honoring a workers right to organize and bargain collectively? Will we insist that Social Security not be placed in the hands of private investment banks? Or will we vote to return to failed economic policies that protect the one percent at the expense of workers? Will we vote yes to proposed budget cuts that will suck demand out of our economy, resulting in millions more joining the ranks of the unemployed? Will we vote to return to outdated, outmoded and out-oftouch policies that serve only a wealthy few? We are at a fork in the road. Between now and November, it is my hope that the conversations we have steer us toward economic recovery. Roger Smith is the President and CEO of American Income Life Insurance Company.

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.

But make no mistake even in this confinement for 125 pages, the suspense is palpable. Jack had been waiting on the side of the road in bitter cold for 93 minutes with cars passing him by, which was not surprising given his gigantic size 5 and his bloody, broken nose. Then a red Toyota stops. Inside are two men and a woman all identically dressed in the same shirt. They tell him theyre coming from a corporate training session and are headed for Chicago. Reachers first suspicion is that the shirts look like something from Dollar Store. Reacher spends his time noting more such details and things that just dont add up. He soon concludes that the two men are kidnappers and the woman is a hostage. The men are Alan King and Don McQueen and the woman is Karen Delfuenso, a cocktail waitress. At some point Reacher is asked to drive and that puts him in front of the backseat hostage who improbably sends him coded messages in the rearview mirror by blinking. Earlier in the evening there had been a murder just off the interstate at a deserted Nebraska pumping station as Reacher learns at various roadblocks. Now he wonders if the men in the car are tied to it. There are a few cutaways to FBI agent Julia Sorenson in Nebraska who is on the case. She and Jack will eventually meet and find themselves two sides of the same coin. Meanwhile, Reacher must plan his own survival and that of the attractive hostage. He thinks, It was technically challenging to take out a guy in the front passenger seat while driving at 80 miles an hour. Plan B is definitely called for. From this point on the action becomes intense but also confusing with an alphabet soup of agencies showing up along with terrorists, all of it increasingly hard to track. Lee Child seems to have created a sub-genre called malefiction with his vigilante protagonist. And Hollywood has been quick to notice. This December Tom Cruise will appear as Jack Reacher in a movie version of an earlier novel One Shot.

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com The perpetual lie When I was a shop steward for a major union in 1964, I was instructed by the union leadership that the members must vote for Democrats in the election because the Republicans were going to eliminate Social Security for seniors. Our parents and grandparents would go homeless and hungry because of the evil Republicans. That was a lie then as it is today. The SEIU Union (the most frequent visitor to the white house) and the Democrat Party are perpetuating the same lie via commercials on the mass media. Everyone knows that Social Security is going broke, but no one will talk about it because any solution requires some sacrifice or compromise. This country does not like the word sacrifice. The Democrats scoff at any solution to Social Security offered by the opposition, but they have no plan. The best things that happened for retirement was the initiation of the 401K plan .where you contribute a percentage of your income, untaxed, into the plan and the company would match a percentage which also went into your retirement fund. For millions of workers this plan was a solution to retirement woes. This small weekly investment matched by the company grew and became a comfortable nest egg. If I could have invested in a 401K plan early in my work life instead of Social Security, I could have retired a millionaire. Compound interest is a wonderful thing. When voting on Nov. 6, choose the voice of reason, not the voice of perpetual lies. Harold Imgrund Oak Run LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 GUEST COMMENTARIES BY SHELDON RICHMAN Mitt Romney isnt just out of touch; hes also out of sync with the movement to shrink government. In an interview clarifying his now-infamous speech to donors, captured on clandestine video, Romney said, I think people would like to be paying taxes. Come again? He also said, The good news is if you are doing well enough financially that you can pay a tax. Thats good news? Romney apparently had low-income people in mind. But if hed rather see them working than collecting government benefits, the last thing he should want is to reduce the returns to labor which is what income taxation does. Workers should be free to keep the full fruits of their labor. I have an idea for the GOP presidential candidate: Test your belief that people like to pay taxes by proposing to end all penalties for nonpayment. Abolish the IRS. Make taxes voluntary. Then well see who would like to pay and who wouldnt. He says hes for less government. Okay, Mr. Romney, prove it. How many people does he suppose would choose to pay for the occupation of Afghanistan, or the drone attacks on Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia, or the war on certain drug makers, sellers, and consumers? How many would be willing to pay for all the corporate welfare that riddles our so-called free-enterprise system? Speaking of corporate welfare, in his speech Romney had much to say about dependence. There are 47 percent who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. He figures those folks wont be voting for him and his allegedly small-government message. Yet the New York Times reports, The states with the highest percentage of federal filers who do not owe income taxes tend to vote Republican in presidential elections, attributing the information to the Tax Foundation. Research by Dean Lacy, a professor of government at Dartmouth College, has found that states that receive more in federal spending than they pay in taxes have become increasingly Republican in presidential elections. So Romney has the 47 percent wrong. But more important, he overlooks the fact that many low-income people work hard at two or three jobs and are the victims of anticompetitive corporatist policies that build barriers to advancement. But that inconvenient fact aside, low-income people arent the only ones dependent on government. Another group is even more dependent: the people of the corporate world who expect government to provide bailouts, guarantees, and contracts. In the wake of the financial meltdown of 2008, its slightly cruel to stigmatize working-class and poor people who get government benefits, while letting big business and big banks off the hook. Romney supported the financial bailout and, aside from talking vaguely about tax loopholes, does not question the pervasive system of government privilege for big business. The military-industrial complex is a case in point. As author Nick Turse documents, many thousands of American businesses are under contract to the military establishment, making everything from clothing to weapons. Many more invest resources looking for contracts. Private consumers are the losers. If you were to suggest to the corporate executives that they wean their companies from the government, theyd laugh. Its much easier to make your money off the taxpayers rather than take your chances with fickle consumers free to take their business elsewhere. No one has a right to other peoples money. Thats a simple moral precept summed up in the words Thou shalt not steal. Its no less stealing if the government does it for you. Invoking democracy is no help here, because if an individual has no right to steal, it is logically impossible for any group of individuals to have such a right. No matter how many zeros you add together, the sum will be zero. Lets end all dependence on government. Doing it in one fell swoop would be ideal, but short of that, heres a workable strategy: Cut taxes from the bottom up and welfare from the top down. This will move us toward a free society and win popular support along the way.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. Romney, taxes and dependence on government BY ROGER SMITH The election this November will be one of the most important in the lives of todays workers. As CEO of a company that employees more than 5,000 people, I know that the outcome will affect each and every one of them. At virtually every backyard get together these days, most workers discuss and lament the state of the economy. But not in the abstract terms we hear from politicians. These days, the economy is personal. Those who still own homes are relieved that they can still host family and friends, of course. Their homes may be worth less than what they owe, but so far theyve survived The November choice facing workers PLEASESEESMITH PAGE11 wrapped and packed in boxes.

Oak Run TravelOak Run Travel needs a volunteer to coordinate our day trips to interesting places or events in Florida. There are typically 12-15 of these per year and do not include our shows or dinner theatre trips or our casino gambling trips. Examples are the Seafood Festival at Cedar Key, Bok Towers, shopping, Stetson Museum, dog races, etc. An idea person for this volunteer position would be one who suggests potential day trips to the committee and then sees to it that they are scheduled by contacting the venue. Other responsibilities are preparing check requests for payment to the venues and coordinating with the bus coordinator plus preparation of the final trip documents at completion of each trip. This is a very interesting position and can be handled easily by a couple who likes to work together. Current or former hosts are encouraged to consider this as another way to give back to the community. All of our current trip coordinators are also hosts though this is not a prerequisite. Be sure to look over the new fall-winter travel brochure (pink color) that was recently delivered. Pick your trips and get to those sale dates. Following is some information on trips from this brochure. Trip #1 is Sleuths Mystery Dinner Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 17. We have several seats still available; if you like a mystery and food youll love this trip which is only $70 per person. Contact Jim and Patty Waddell to get on the bus before it is sold out. The title for trip #17 should read Florida Mall Shopping as is stated in the description. On trip #21, S Wonderful, the price reduction from $68.50 down to $52 (WOW!) didnt make into the trip description inside the brochure, so take note of that. A little clarification is needed for trip #26, Mid-Week Getaway (2 days). Day one you arrive at the Seminole CasinoImmokalee near Naples and stay at the Hilton Garden Inn where you are treated to a cheese and wine reception followed by dinner and a show at the Broadway Palm. The show is the very funny Menopause the Musical. Day 2, after a full breakfast buffet you stop at the Seminole Casino-Tampa before returning to Oak Run. All of this for just $123 per person. Sale date is Oct. 23. Call Amelia Fiore for more information. Due to complications we are having to reschedule trip #31, Miami Key West, originally planned for Mar. 18-21, 2013. A new date will be announced when we are able to reschedule it. Royal Oaks Ladies 18 Hole GolfOn Tuesday, Sept. 25, we had our fall meeting event. We played a team game, Two Net Best Balls, followed by a delicious soup and salad bar luncheon in the Royal Oaks dining room and then a league meeting. The winning teams of the golf game were: First place Elsa Berbig, Judy Klein, Maureen Edwards, and Carolyn Collins. Second place Pat Blackburn, Salita Timmermeyer, Sheila Adams, and Rhonda LaBlanc. Maureen Edwards was closest to the pin. We also appreciated our golf pro, Lorie Wilkes, for taking time out of her busy schedule to join us for lunch and our meeting. Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn Sept.27 we played T & Fs and handicap. Flight A: Kerry Tims 1st., Elsa Berbig 2nd. and in Flight B: 1st. Cindy Kocher, 2nd. IIene Simnowitz.

Royal Oaks Mens GolfSept. 28 was the final tune up for the members as Ryder Cup play starts next week. Thirty-six players played the usual three best net. While the scores were not the best, the golf was played in good conditions on a pleasant day. The winners with a 196 were Dale Wurzburger, Bob Gildea, John Fouty, and Steve Szabo. Tied for second with scores of 206 were the teams of John DeSalvo, Vince Connolly, Jim Kennedy, and Jan Flickinger; and Ron Kowalewski, Gene Topp, Ray Hagerman, and Duke Slayton.

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although you love being the focus of attention, its a good idea to take a few steps back right now to just watch the action. What you see can help with an upcoming decision. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Caution continues to be your watchword this week, as a former colleague tries to reconnect old links. There are still some dark places that need to be illuminated. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Making a good first impression is important. Revealing your often hidden sense of humor can help you get through some of the more awkward situations. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Taking that Cancer Crab image too seriously? Lighten up. Instead of complaining about your problems, start resolving them. A friend would be happy to help. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A widening distance between you and that special person needs to be handled with honesty and sensitivity. Dont let jealousy create an even greater gap between you two. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Congratulations. Your handling of a delicate family matter rates kudos. But no resting on your laurels just yet. You still have to resolve that on-the-job problem. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might surprise everyone by being unusually impulsive this week. But even level-headed Libras need to do the unexpected now and then. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A period of turmoil gives way to a calmer, more settled environment. Use this quieter time to patch up neglected personal and/or professional relationships. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A new relationship could create resentment among family and friends who feel left out of your life. Show them you care by making more time for them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Concentrate on completing all your unfinished tasks before deadline. Youll then be able to use this freed-up time to research new career opportunities. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youre right to try to help colleagues resolve their heated differences. But keep your objectivity and avoid showing any favoritism twixt the two sides. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your personal life continues to show positive changes. Enjoy this happy turn of events, by all means. But be careful not to neglect your workplace obligations. BORN THIS WEEK: People of all ages look to you for advice and encouragement. You would make an excellent counselor. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure from his subtle skills as a politician campaigning for re-election. Our guess is that voters will cast their ballots based on disgust with one or the other political party, primarily their inability or unwillingness to solve problems. Does that suggest Romney or Obama? The answer will be in the ballots, not the polls. As President Truman knew well, voters can be persuaded to change their minds. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 A culture of confrontationAmerica has been invaded by a pandemic of personality disorders. We have become a country of sociopathic-narcissists. We have lost our ability to be patient, tolerant and respectful. Humility, once very prevalent, has been replaced with egotism. Our former culture of discussion, concession and compromise has been reduced to a culture of confrontation. I see our country going down with little hope of ever returning to our former more sensible times. Our personality is our characteristic way of thinking, feeling, behaving and relating to others. People with an antisocial (sociopathic) personality disorder act in a way that disregards the feelings and rights of all other people. They usually lie repeatedly, act impulsively, and get into physical fights easily. In short, they care about no one but themselves. People with a narcissistic personality disorder have a grandiose sense of self importance. They seek admiration from others and fantasize about their unlimited success and/or power. They believe themselves to be special, unique and superior to all others. They believe they are above all laws and rules. One group of psychologists has come to the conclusion that people with a sociopathic narcissistic personality can best be described as having no conscience. This group also agrees that people with this multiple personality disorder (lack of a conscience) cannot be cured by any outside means. No amount of therapy will work since these people believe any therapist is beneath them. They must be cured by themselves from within themselves. If you apply this logic to the 550 plus people (the Supreme Court, the House and Senate and the current president) in Washington, D.C., it becomes clear why our country is so screwed up. Each member of these bodies has an agenda. This agenda does not include that whichs best for America and its citizens. They work to satisfy their own beliefs and that of the lobbyists who fill their pockets and to plan for their own re-election. It has been estimated by non-partisan statistic keepers that our politicians spend 30 percent to 70 percent of their time in office planning for their own re-election. The median time is over 50 percent. These are members of both parties. We no longer have any statesmen in our midst; no leadership! Is it any wonder why the rest of our population has become so confrontational? We are following the example set by our leaders. Americans are killing each other at alarming rates. We have children killing parents, parents killing children, siblings killing each other, friends killing each other and most for reasons that we used to be able to talk out. The media (newspapers and television) have also become very partisan. This exacerbates the problem. Unbiased and balanced media outlets no longer exist. Americans now seldom get all of the truth via the media. Remember, reporting only half of the news is every bit as bad as reporting news that is untrue. So sad! While all politicians and members of the media are at the top of my bad list, entertainers and professional sports people, who love to perform for the media, follow closely. They love being on the front page and being the big story. More than any other individuals who have lived during my lifetime, I have admired Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi (known simply as Gandhi), Martin Luther King and Billy Graham. None of these ever bragged how great they were or how lucky the world was to have them. They simply followed their hearts and sacrificed everything for their beliefs of reaching an honorable goal. Although I am not Catholic, the person I admired most was Mother Teresa. She lived the faith that she believed. Wouldnt it be nice to have a Mother Teresa in Washington? George Cipra Oak RunVision or reality? President Obamas supporters fall into two Groups: 1. those who pay taxes on their income; have earned non-entitlements such as, pensions, Social Security, Medicare; may or may not be politically savvy, and, 2. those who receive government entitlements; pay little or no taxes; probably dont care about politics. If Group 1 considers the following three facts, they will be skeptical of the things that Obama tells them. Many in Group 2 will support whomever promises them more free things. 1. Obama didnt deliver the hope and change for America he promised us in 2008. 2. He told Matt Lauer in February, 2009, that if he didnt turn the economy around in three years, he would be a one-term president. Well, here it is almost four years later and our economy is still dismal. 3. Obama hasnt accomplished anything of real substance during his term. Now, Obama suddenly has this vision of America ... and his supporters believe him ... again. Dont they realize he says what he wants them to hear; he distorts facts to enhance his vision? Undistorted facts do not lie! They are so telling that, anyone can understand them. If Obamas supporters ponder the facts ... without playing Obamas numbers games ... it becomes apparent that his vision wont work. These are your choices: Obamas hypothetical vision of America, or Mitt Romneys realities for America. As a writer said in his Sept. 14, 2012 letter, Americas future (is) in our hands, Think before you vote, our future depends on it!

Stop in and see why weve been Marion Countys leader for over 34 years! W ith interest and enthusiasm weve followed presidential election campaigns since Thomas Dewey tried to unseat President Harry Truman in 1948. All the pundits and papers believed Mr. Truman couldnt win re-election with a 36 percent approval rating, but he did. Truman ran a brilliant campaign, which included a whistlestop train tour of the nation, with a speech at every stop. Instead of running against the very successful and do-goody Mr. Dewey, Truman campaigned against a do-nothing Republican Congress. On the morning after the election the Chicago Tribune declared Mr. Dewey the winner. Having been re-elected, a smiling President Truman posed for pictures holding up the erroneous Tribune headline. The lesson of the story is what voters tell pollsters who collect approval ratings is not necessarily how they vote on election day. In 2012 our incumbent president Obama couldnt run against a do-nothing Republican House of Representatives while ignoring his own do-nothing Democratic Senate. Instead, he resurrected his vague but successful 2008 campaign of hope and change. In addition to the two mantras which won his first term election, Mr. Obama added some similarly vague enticements for voters social and economic security and adjustment of income and wealth inequality. Scarcity of specifics in Obama campaigns is clever, not accidental. Its a strategy demonstrated by the vacuous comment of then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi when she urged passage of the Patient Protection and Affrordable Care Act (Obamacare): We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it. Re-elect Mr. Obama and well soon find out what he means by hope, change, security, and inequality. The other prong of the Obama re-election campaign has been creation of an effective referendum on challenger Mitt Romney, whose successes as a businessman, governor, and volunteer manager of the troubled 2002 Olympics are depicted as negative qualifications for a president. The Obama campaign has muddled voters perceptions of the private and political Mr. Romney, who has struggled to corral a variety of hard-core conservative constituencies. The primary and persistent Romney theme has been economic growth, job creation, and resuscitation of the middle class. By selecting Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential running mate however, Mr. Romney picked a candidate with specific positions and proposals on every imaginable issue. The Obama campaign must have been overjoyed at the target Mr. Ryan presents. In his most recent book, famous investigative journalist Bob Woodward characterizes Mr. Obama as an uncertain leader and inexperienced administrator, neither of which detracts www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, October 5, 2012 N ewspaper people, at least those who work for reputable organizations, have some rules and standards to follow. One of those states that employees shouldnt get involved in backing any political causes or candidates, no bumper stickers, etc. Thats a good rule. You generally want your newspaper people to be neutral in coverage, and keep opinions to the opinion pages. But I guarantee that the moment Im finished working at a newspaper, Im going to take up a cause, pushing for a federal law change and a state constitutional amendment. My amendment would read as follows: The Do-Not-Call Registry shall apply to all politicians and political causes. Lets face it, we cant count on our legislators to expand the donot-call list, since they are the biggest violators. I have to admit, when I answer the phone at home now, if its a recording, I hang up after about five words. My wifes a little more patient. Shell listen for a while before hanging up. But its annoying when were sitting there watching a TV show or eating dinner (or both), and we have to interrupt our train of thought to answer the phone. When you derail my train of thought, its very hard for me to get back on track. So I definitely want to stop the phone calls, which obviously are going to persist until Nov. 6 (during the primary I received a call just an hour before the polls were supposed to close). I wanted to put another rule into place, so that when the Caller ID says blocked or unknown, I just simply do not answer. But then I discovered that the cell phones of some people I know come across as unknown, so I really cant do that. Evidently Caller ID has not kept up with the cell phone boom. Besides, some of these political calls come in with Caller ID numbers with out-of-state area codes, making them look legitimate. So for now, Ill just live with it. But be forewarned, politicians. If I ever retire, Ill be out on the corner getting petitions signed to expand the do-not-call list. Im coming after you, and I dont think Ill have any trouble getting it passed.

T oday we take a look at Amendments 3 and 4 on the Florida ballot on Nov. 6. These two are somewhat convoluted for voters who have to wade through all the material concerning possible passage. Amendment 3 is titled State Government Revenue Limitation. Sounds good on the surface. It must mean that the state can take less of your money. Well, its not that simple. This calculates how much money the state can get. Proponents say it will enable you to keep money in your pocket, especially in tough times. Opponents say that it can cut revenue so much that the state government can stop operating efficiently. They point to Colorado, of all people, which has a similar law and had some tough times when the economy went south. Feel free to read through this in todays edition, but frankly, it seems like an awful lot of time-wasting, confusing rhetoric. You wont be sure what youre getting if you vote in favor of this (kind of sounds like Obamacare, doesnt it?) so it might be good to just say no. Now for Amendment 4, which has floated around before and been knocked off the ballots by the courts. This time, all that has been corrected and its there for you to vote on. It concerns non-homestead property, in other words, property you own but dont use for your principal residence. It limits the percentage of value that can be increased in the system used to determine the propertys worth. Again, this is one of those that youre not sure what youre getting if you vote for it. You know the saying, if something sounds too good to be true, etc. So when in doubt, again, just vote no. By the way, if you want a good description of the amendments, former County Commissioner Judy Johnson will explain the amendments at the Coalition meeting next Monday, Oct. 8. Maybe we can all learn something. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY More amendments you can reject Do not call should be for politicians Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Time for voters to change their minds is near A centrists viewI have lived in Oak Run since 1995. I am a registered independent/unaffiliated. In June, a pollster asked me two questions. Am I satisfied with the job the President is doing? I answered some yes, some no. If I were to vote today, which candidate would I choose? I answered Ive been a registered Independent for 50 years and often vote for neither Republican or Democrat because I would like to have better choices. This is one of those years. The last three months have changed all that. Every time a Democrat diverts questions about the economy or debt or unrest to Bain or tax returns, they drive me more to the right. If you have a defensible position would you not use it? More recently three episodes on MSNBC closed the deal. First: following Ann Romneys speach at the convention, a three person panel could not find a single nice thing to say about this woman. I switched to FOX just in time to hear Juan Williams (looking bored) write her off as a corporate wife. Nothing nice to say about Ann Romney! Second was a discord about welfare. The Republican was a black man and the Democrat a white woman. After a few shots back and forth, the woman declares I am a Catholic as though that were a supporting factor for welfare. Lets see: a president thats pro contraceptive, pro gay marriage and pro abortion is supported by Catholics? Whats wrong with this picture. Last was a reaction to Romneys tax return. It appears that he gave $4 million to charity and didnt claim it all. The respondent did not praise Romney for donating nearly 30 percent of his income to charity, but rather suggested he would refile after the election and claim a greater deduction. If you are charitable, happily Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED PLEASESEEFLYNN PAGE9 married, successful, religious and somewhat honest, you are a Republican. Some of these are me, how about you? Bill Riola Oak RunMedia bias From one who has voted in presidential elections since 1956, this election cycle is the most one sided Ive ever seen. The so called elite media treats President Obama with kid gloves while Romney is fair game. Its Romney this and Romney that around the clock. While Fox News, the #1 cable channel, covers everything, MSNBC is very selective. Like ignoring the chaos in the middle east which includes Obama and his administrations faulty handling of Benghazigate. It would be nice to have a level playing field but thats not going to happen. Hopefully the (ex) president will soon return to Chicago where he can look at the View. Bob Cronin, Ocala More letters on Page 9 C hances are, if you receive Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or any federal payment, you receive it electronically. More than 90 percent of people getting monthly Social Security benefits already receive electronic payments. If you dont, that will change. There is a U.S. Department of Treasury rule that does away with paper checks for most federal benefit and non-tax payments by March 1, 2013. With a few exceptions, this mandate includes Social Security, SSI, Veterans Affairs, Railroad Retirement Board, Office of Personnel Management benefits, and other non-tax payments. People required to switch have the option of direct deposit to a bank or credit union account or they can have their monthly payment directed into a Direct Express debit card account (Treasurys debit card program). Please visit www.godirect.org to learn more. So, why the push for electronic payments instead of paper checks received in the mail? Theres a list of reasons an electronic payment is better than an old-fashioned paper check. Its safer: no risk of checks being lost or stolen; Its easy and reliable: no waiting for the mail or go to the bank to cash a check; It saves taxpayers money: no cost for postage and paper and printing; Treasury estimates this will save taxpayers $1 billion over 10 years; and Its good for the environment: it saves paper and eliminates the need for physical transportation. If you still get your check in the mail, dont wait for the new rule to go into effect next year sign up for electronic payments now. Please visit www.godirect.org today and begin getting your Social Security and SSI payments the safe, easy, reliable way electronically.Adon Williams is district manager in Ocala for Social Security.

Once users download the free app, they can choose to receive push notifications from any school. Similar to text messages, these notifications can be immediate in case of an emergency. In the future, they may also remind subscribers about early release days, events, athletic competitions, club meetings, and other district and school functions. The app, provided free to the district and users at no taxpayer expense, links to the Parent Portal with student grades, school lunch menus, school addresses and contact information, school web sites, and education-related resources. It also provides GPS mapping and navigation links and multiple language options including Spanish. The app was created by School Connect, an Oklahoma-based mobile app developer for K-12 school systems. Within 24 hours of its initial launch in October 2011, School Connect was a Top 25 free app at the Apple store. To date, the app is available in 93 school districts in eight states including Florida.

Amendment 3Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site): This proposed amendment to the State Constitution replaces the existing state revenue limitation based on Florida personal income growth with a new state revenue limitation based on inflation and population changes. Under the amendment, state revenues, as defined in the amendment, collected in excess of the revenue limitation must be deposited into the budget stabilization fund until the fund reaches its maximum balance, and thereafter shall be used for the support and maintenance of public schools by reducing the minimum financial effort required from school districts for participation in a state-funded education finance program, or, if the minimum financial effort is no longer required, returned to the taxpayers. The Legislature may increase the state revenue limitation through a bill approved by a super majority vote of each house of the Legislature. The Legislature may also submit a proposed increase in the state revenue limitation to the voters. The Legislature must implement this proposed amendment by general law. The amendment will take effect upon approval by the electors and will first apply to the 2014-2015 state fiscal year.Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment would ensure that the state budget never grows beyond a familys ability to pay the taxes and fees needed to fund that growth. They say it would make government more efficient. Arguments against:Critics say that during tough economic times, when tax revenues drop and there is a greater need for government services, this amendment would make it impossible for agencies to meet demand, even when there is available revenue. They say it threatens funding for critical government services like health care and education. Should the state change the way it calculates its revenue limit?Since 1995, Florida has set a cap for the amount of revenue it can spend every year from taxes and fees imposed on everything from gasoline and tobacco sales to business licenses and auto titles. Any excess revenue is to be deposited in the states rainy day fund or returned to taxpayers, rather than be spent by the government. The cap is considered by its backers to be a self-imposed restraint on government growth. The current version is set using a formula based on annual changes in Florida personal income, a cumulative total of all personal earnings such as wages, dividends, rent or interest income received in a given year by Florida residents. To date, state revenue collections have never exceeded the cap (largely due to rising personal income and falling tax rates). If passed, Amendment 3 would impose a stricter formula for calculating the revenue limit and, as a result, increase the likelihood it would limit government spending. The new formula would be based on annual population growth and inflation, instead of personal income. Those indicators are considered less volatile than personal income growth and, therefore, more likely to constrain growth in state revenues than the current limitation, according to a state Senate analysis of Amendment 3. In fact, the analysis shows revenues would have exceeded the limits in fiscal years 2004-05 and 2005-06 had the revenue limitation proposed in Amendment 3 been in effect since 1994. Supporters say the cap is needed to protect Floridas economy. We have witnessed first-hand how the government can take too much when the economy is good, former Senate President Mike Haridopolis said in a prepared statement. (Amendment 3) wisely limits state spending. Overuse of taxpayer dollars is an unwise tactic that only hinders our states growth. However, opponents fear catastrophic results during recessionary times or if a natural disaster strikes. With strict revenue limits in place, the state might be hard-pressed to fund necessary services. They point to Colorado, which enacted a cap in 1992, as an example of what potentially can go wrong. With its strict revenue limits, Colorados government was strapped to fund education and provide other public services when its economy softened. The state ultimately loosened the rules for setting its revenue limits. It was disastrous for (Colorado), for their education, for their health care, state Sen. Nan Rich, D-Weston, told the Associated Press article in May 2011. The measure passed the Legislature Title on Ballot: State Government Revenue Limitation Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would set a state revenue limit each year based on a formula that considers population growth and inflation instead of using the current method of calculating the revenue limit based on personal income. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you want the state to change the way it calculates its revenue limit. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not want the state to change the way it calculates its revenue limit. PLEASESEEAMENDMENT 3 PAGE28 Amendment 4Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site): (1) This would amend Florida Constitution Article VII, Section 4 (Taxation; assessments) and Section 6 (Homestead exemptions). It also would amend Article XII, Section 27, and add Sections 32 and 33, relating to the Schedule for the amendments. (2) In certain circumstances, the law requires the assessed value of homestead and specified nonhomestead property to increase when the just value of the property decreases. Therefore, this amendment provides that the Legislature may, by general law, provide that the assessment of homestead and specified nonhomestead property may not increase if the just value of that property is less than the just value of the property on the preceding January 1, subject to any adjustment in the assessed value due to changes, additions, reductions, or improvements to such property which are assessed as provided for by general law. This amendment takes effect upon approval by the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, shall take effect January 1, 2013. (3) This amendment reduces from 10 percent to 5 percent the limitation on annual changes in assessments of nonhomestead real property. This amendment takes effect upon approval of the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, takes effect January 1, 2013. (4) This amendment also authorizes general law to provide, subject to conditions specified in such law, an additional homestead exemption to every person who establishes the right to receive the homestead exemption provided in the Florida Constitution within 1 year after purchasing the homestead property and who has not owned property in the previous 3 calendar years to which the Florida homestead exemption applied. The additional homestead exemption shall apply to all levies except school district levies. The additional exemption is an amount equal to 50 percent of the homestead propertys just value on January 1 of the year the homestead is established. The additional homestead exemption may not exceed an amount equal to the median just value of all homestead property within the county where the property at issue is located for the calendar year immediately preceding January 1 of the year the homestead is established. The additional exemption shall apply for the shorter of 5 years or the year of sale of the property. The amount of the additional exemption shall be reduced in each subsequent year by an amount equal to 20 percent of the amount of the additional exemption received in the year the homestead was established or by an amount equal to the difference between the just value of the property and the assessed value of the property determined under Article VII, Section 4(d), whichever is greater. Not more than one such exemption shall be allowed per homestead property at one time. The additional exemption applies to property purchased on or after January 1, 2011, if approved by the voters at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, or to property purchased on or after January 1, 2012, if approved by the voters at the 2012 general election. The additional exemption is not available in the sixth and subsequent years after it is first received. The amendment shall take effect upon approval by the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, takes effect January 1, 2013. (5) This amendment also delays until 2023, the repeal, currently scheduled to take effect in 2019, of constitutional amendments adopted in 2008 which limit annual assessment increases for specified nonhomestead real property. This amendment delays until 2022 the submission of an amendment proposing the abrogation of such repeal to the voters. Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment would make Florida property taxation more equitable, stimulate the housing and commercial real estate markets and attract investors to the state. Arguments against:Opponents say it would create tax disTitle on Ballot: Property Tax Limitations; Property Value Decline; Reduction For Nonhomestead Assessment Increases; Delay of Scheduled Repeal Sponsor: The Florida Legislature What it would do: Reduce the maximum annual increase in taxable value of non-homestead properties from 10 percent to 5 percent; provide an extra homestead exemption for first-time home buyers; allow lawmakers to prohibit assessment increases for properties with decreasing market values. If you vote yes: A yes vote means you favor the enhanced tax breaks being proposed. If you vote no: A no vote means you are against the enhanced tax breaks being proposed.

As with all proposed constitutional amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved, the new state revenue limitation becomes effective in fiscal year 2014-15. HistoryFlorida is among as many as 30 states to adopt revenue or spending limits, according to a review by the National Conference of State Legislatures. Colorados is the most controversial, and among the strictest. Adopted in 1992, and called the Taxpayers Bill of Rights (TABOR), it limits both state revenues and revenues from local government. It requires voter approval before taxes can be raised, and its cap is tied to changes in population and inflation. Floridas revenue limit, passed by nearly 60 percent of the voters in 1994, is not as strict as the limits Colorado passed. Florida caps state revenues only, and uses a formula tied to changes in personal income. Revenues neared the cap in Florida the first few years after its passage. Since that time, however, revenues subject to the limitation have generally grown more slowly than personal income, according to a Florida Senate staff analysis. That analysis points to a number of reasons for the widening gap between the limit and revenues: Tax cuts enacted by Legislature beginning in 1999; reductions in estate tax revenues resulting from changes in federal law; and the effects of the recession. In 2005, Colorado eased its revenue limits amid a deepening fiscal crisis. Since then, a number of states have rejected strict revenue limits. In Florida in 2008, 2009 and 2010, legislation to impose stricter revenue limits failed to pass the Legislature. That changed in 2011, when the Legislature passed what became Amendment 3. AMENDMENT 3 CONTINUED FROM PAGE 26 parities and strip an estimated $1 billion from the tax base over the next three years at a time when local governments are struggling to provide basic services. Should the state enhance tax exemptions for non-homesteaded properties and first-time homebuyers? Amendment 4 extends tax breaks to property owners and first-time property buyers. Its most consequential provisions would: 1) Prevent the assessed value of homesteaded and specified non-homesteaded properties from increasing if the market value of that property decreases compared to the previous year. This would allow the Legislature to eliminate a provision in the current law known as recapture, which can cause the taxable value of a property to rise even if its market value drops; 2) Reduce from 10 percent to 5 percent the cap on annual increases in the assessments of specified non-homesteaded properties such as residential rental property, seasonal homes, and commercial property; 3) Authorize an additional homestead exemption to homebuyers who qualify for the existing exemption and who are firsttime buyers or have not owned property during the previous three years or longer. The additional exemption would phase out over five years and be equal to 50 percent of the market value of the property but not greater than the median market value of all homesteaded properties in the county where the property is located. Proponents say the tax breaks will stimulate the housing and commercial real estate markets. They also say it will help property owners in a down economy. Critics say the proposal will hurt cashstrapped school districts, cities and counties already forced to cut services. Total tax revenue losses over a three-year period have been estimated by the state at nearly $1 billion. The bill to include this amendment on the 2012 ballot passed comfortably in the House by a 105-11 vote, and passed in the Senate by a closer vote of 25-12. Although several questions are raised in this one proposed amendment, voters will be casting a single vote on whether to approve all of them or defeat all of them. As with all amendments on the ballot, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. It passed the provisions in the amendment would take effect Jan. 1, 2013. HistoryIn 2008, 64 percent of the voters approved a constitutional amendment providing for a $50,000 homestead exemption. The $50,000 is subtracted from the assessed value of an eligible home and property taxes are calculated based on that lower amount. 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 in Florida or in any other state. In addition to the homestead exemption, state law also caps annual increases in property assessments used to calculate tax bills. Called the Save Our Homes provision, it limits the increase in property assessments on homesteaded properties to 3 percent annually or the rate of inflation, whichever is less. Critics complain that Save Our Homes shifts the tax AMENDMENT 4 CONTINUED FROM PAGE 26 PLEASESEEAMENDMENT 4 PAGE31 000CLV6 PAINTING A 1 H O M E A 1 H O M E A-1 H OME R E P A I R I N C R E P A I R I N C R EPAIR I NC Mike Semich 40 Years Experience Interior and Exterior Painting Free Pressure Cleaning with Exterior Paint Job Free Furniture Moving Seniors 10% Discount Licensed and Insured (352) 895-6047 000CDLF FLOORS & WINDOWS 6715 SW Hwy. 200 (located 5 mi.

To address that perceived inequity, the amendment that voters approved in 2008 to raise the homestead exemption to $50,000 also placed a 10 percent cap on annual assessment increases for non-homesteaded properties. A 2010 Proposal In 2009, after the bubble burst on Floridas housing market, lawmakers passed a proposed amendment that included a benefit for first-time homebuyers and a reduction in the cap on non-homesteaded property from 10 percent to 5 percent. The first-time homebuyer benefit was meant to stimulate the housing market by offering new buyers more equal footing with existing homeowners whose assessed values are depressed by receiving the Save Our Homes benefit for years. Reducing the cap on the non-homesteaded properties was meant to give relief to landlords, snowbirds and the owners of commercial property. AMENDMENT 4 CONTINUED FROM PAGE 28 The Florida Chamber of Commerce said in 2010 that lowering the assessment cap to 5 percent for non-homestead property was a key to making the tax burden fairer for businesses. Critics of the 2010 proposal feared local governments and school districts would suffer the brunt of further property tax breaks. If approved, the amendment would have cost those local entities hundreds of millions of dollars, state economists estimated. The amendment was opposed by the Florida Education Association. On May 1, 2009, the final measure passed the Legislature. But the proposal was challenged in court by a group of citizens and labor unions and two months later a circuit court judge ordered them removed from the ballot, finding that its summary lacked details about the measure, such as the dates when the tax breaks would have gone into effect. The state Supreme Court upheld the lower court decision.

Third of a series on candidates who appeared at a recent forum.BY JIM CLARK Editor Candidates for supervisor of election took the floor at a recent forum at the downtown library. First up was Judge Cochran, who is currently serving as the public information officer at the Sheriffs Office. The former media worker at Gannett and New York Times Broadcast spoke about getting more people involved, trying to eliminate voter suppression. The Democrat praised early voting and absentee ballots, saying with the number of amendments it would be more beneficial. Asked about changes he would implement, he said he would set up voter registration in neighborhoods, and he also said the he would get people excited to vote, and expand media relations. The Republican is Wesley Wilcox, currently the assistant in the elections office. Incumbent Dee Brown chose not to run again. He said that he has spent 22 years coordinating elections, and is an instructor in the state certification process for election workers. He said he would attempt to get out to more locations, and said he would increase social and electronic interactions. He emphasized that every vote counts, and spoke of a recent Belleview election that finished with a tie. Asked about voter fraud, Wilcox said the idea of showing ID is not a suppression issue. He agreed that voting by mail this year would be a help to speed things up at the polls on Election Day.

To address that perceived inequity, the amendment that voters approved in 2008 to raise the homestead exemption to $50,000 also placed a 10 percent cap on annual assessment increases for non-homesteaded properties. A 2010 Proposal In 2009, after the bubble burst on Floridas housing market, lawmakers passed a proposed amendment that included a benefit for first-time homebuyers and a reduction in the cap on non-homesteaded property from 10 percent to 5 percent. The first-time homebuyer benefit was meant to stimulate the housing market by offering new buyers more equal footing with existing homeowners whose assessed values are depressed by receiving the Save Our Homes benefit for years. Reducing the cap on the non-homesteaded properties was meant to give relief to landlords, snowbirds and the owners of commercial property. AMENDMENT 4CONTINUED FROM PAGE 28 The Florida Chamber of Commerce said in 2010 that lowering the assessment cap to 5 percent for non-homestead property was a key to making the tax burden fairer for businesses. Critics of the 2010 proposal feared local governments and school districts would suffer the brunt of further property tax breaks. If approved, the amendment would have cost those local entities hundreds of millions of dollars, state economists estimated. The amendment was opposed by the Florida Education Association. On May 1, 2009, the final measure passed the Legislature. But the proposal was challenged in court by a group of citizens and labor unions and two months later a circuit court judge ordered them removed from the ballot, finding that its summary lacked details about the measure, such as the dates when the tax breaks would have gone into effect. The state Supreme Court upheld the lower court decision.

As with all proposed constitutional amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved, the new state revenue limitation becomes effective in fiscal year 2014-15.HistoryFlorida is among as many as 30 states to adopt revenue or spending limits, according to a review by the National Conference of State Legislatures. Colorados is the most controversial, and among the strictest. Adopted in 1992, and called the Taxpayers Bill of Rights (TABOR), it limits both state revenues and revenues from local government. It requires voter approval before taxes can be raised, and its cap is tied to changes in population and inflation. Floridas revenue limit, passed by nearly 60 percent of the voters in 1994, is not as strict as the limits Colorado passed. Florida caps state revenues only, and uses a formula tied to changes in personal income. Revenues neared the cap in Florida the first few years after its passage. Since that time, however, revenues subject to the limitation have generally grown more slowly than personal income, according to a Florida Senate staff analysis. That analysis points to a number of reasons for the widening gap between the limit and revenues: Tax cuts enacted by Legislature beginning in 1999; reductions in estate tax revenues resulting from changes in federal law; and the effects of the recession. In 2005, Colorado eased its revenue limits amid a deepening fiscal crisis. Since then, a number of states have rejected strict revenue limits. In Florida in 2008, 2009 and 2010, legislation to impose stricter revenue limits failed to pass the Legislature. That changed in 2011, when the Legislature passed what became Amendment 3. AMENDMENT 3CONTINUED FROM PAGE 26 parities and strip an estimated $1 billion from the tax base over the next three years at a time when local governments are struggling to provide basic services. Should the state enhance tax exemptions for non-homesteaded properties and first-time homebuyers? Amendment 4 extends tax breaks to property owners and first-time property buyers. Its most consequential provisions would: 1) Prevent the assessed value of homesteaded and specified non-homesteaded properties from increasing if the market value of that property decreases compared to the previous year. This would allow the Legislature to eliminate a provision in the current law known as recapture, which can cause the taxable value of a property to rise even if its market value drops; 2) Reduce from 10 percent to 5 percent the cap on annual increases in the assessments of specified non-homesteaded properties such as residential rental property, seasonal homes, and commercial property; 3) Authorize an additional homestead exemption to homebuyers who qualify for the existing exemption and who are firsttime buyers or have not owned property during the previous three years or longer. The additional exemption would phase out over five years and be equal to 50 percent of the market value of the property but not greater than the median market value of all homesteaded properties in the county where the property is located. Proponents say the tax breaks will stimulate the housing and commercial real estate markets. They also say it will help property owners in a down economy. Critics say the proposal will hurt cashstrapped school districts, cities and counties already forced to cut services. Total tax revenue losses over a three-year period have been estimated by the state at nearly $1 billion. The bill to include this amendment on the 2012 ballot passed comfortably in the House by a 105-11 vote, and passed in the Senate by a closer vote of 25-12. Although several questions are raised in this one proposed amendment, voters will be casting a single vote on whether to approve all of them or defeat all of them. As with all amendments on the ballot, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. It passed the provisions in the amendment would take effect Jan. 1, 2013.HistoryIn 2008, 64 percent of the voters approved a constitutional amendment providing for a $50,000 homestead exemption. The $50,000 is subtracted from the assessed value of an eligible home and property taxes are calculated based on that lower amount. 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 in Florida or in any other state. In addition to the homestead exemption, state law also caps annual increases in property assessments used to calculate tax bills. Called the Save Our Homes provision, it limits the increase in property assessments on homesteaded properties to 3 percent annually or the rate of inflation, whichever is less. Critics complain that Save Our Homes shifts the tax AMENDMENT 4CONTINUED FROM PAGE 26 PLEASESEEAMENDMENT 4, PAGE31 000CLV6 PAINTING A-1 H OME A-1 H OME A-1 H OME R EPAIR I NC R EPAIR I NC R EPAIR I NC Mike Semich 40 Years Experience Interior and Exterior Painting Free Pressure Cleaning with Exterior Paint Job Free Furniture Moving Seniors 10% Discount Licensed and Insured (352) 895-6047 000CDLF FLOORS & WINDOWS 6715 SW Hwy. 200 (located 5 mi.

Amendment 3Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site):This proposed amendment to the State Constitution replaces the existing state revenue limitation based on Florida personal income growth with a new state revenue limitation based on inflation and population changes. Under the amendment, state revenues, as defined in the amendment, collected in excess of the revenue limitation must be deposited into the budget stabilization fund until the fund reaches its maximum balance, and thereafter shall be used for the support and maintenance of public schools by reducing the minimum financial effort required from school districts for participation in a state-funded education finance program, or, if the minimum financial effort is no longer required, returned to the taxpayers. The Legislature may increase the state revenue limitation through a bill approved by a super majority vote of each house of the Legislature. The Legislature may also submit a proposed increase in the state revenue limitation to the voters. The Legislature must implement this proposed amendment by general law. The amendment will take effect upon approval by the electors and will first apply to the 2014-2015 state fiscal year.Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment would ensure that the state budget never grows beyond a familys ability to pay the taxes and fees needed to fund that growth. They say it would make government more efficient.Arguments against:Critics say that during tough economic times, when tax revenues drop and there is a greater need for government services, this amendment would make it impossible for agencies to meet demand, even when there is available revenue. They say it threatens funding for critical government services like health care and education.Should the state change the way it calculates its revenue limit?Since 1995, Florida has set a cap for the amount of revenue it can spend every year from taxes and fees imposed on everything from gasoline and tobacco sales to business licenses and auto titles. Any excess revenue is to be deposited in the states rainy day fund or returned to taxpayers, rather than be spent by the government. The cap is considered by its backers to be a self-imposed restraint on government growth. The current version is set using a formula based on annual changes in Florida personal income, a cumulative total of all personal earnings such as wages, dividends, rent or interest income received in a given year by Florida residents. To date, state revenue collections have never exceeded the cap (largely due to rising personal income and falling tax rates). If passed, Amendment 3 would impose a stricter formula for calculating the revenue limit and, as a result, increase the likelihood it would limit government spending. The new formula would be based on annual population growth and inflation, instead of personal income. Those indicators are considered less volatile than personal income growth and, therefore, more likely to constrain growth in state revenues than the current limitation, according to a state Senate analysis of Amendment 3. In fact, the analysis shows revenues would have exceeded the limits in fiscal years 2004-05 and 2005-06 had the revenue limitation proposed in Amendment 3 been in effect since 1994. Supporters say the cap is needed to protect Floridas economy. We have witnessed first-hand how the government can take too much when the economy is good, former Senate President Mike Haridopolis said in a prepared statement. (Amendment 3) wisely limits state spending. Overuse of taxpayer dollars is an unwise tactic that only hinders our states growth. However, opponents fear catastrophic results during recessionary times or if a natural disaster strikes. With strict revenue limits in place, the state might be hard-pressed to fund necessary services. They point to Colorado, which enacted a cap in 1992, as an example of what potentially can go wrong. With its strict revenue limits, Colorados government was strapped to fund education and provide other public services when its economy softened. The state ultimately loosened the rules for setting its revenue limits. It was disastrous for (Colorado), for their education, for their health care, state Sen. Nan Rich, D-Weston, told the Associated Press article in May 2011. The measure passed the Legislature Title on Ballot: State Government Revenue Limitation Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would set a state revenue limit each year based on a formula that considers population growth and inflation instead of using the current method of calculating the revenue limit based on personal income. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you want the state to change the way it calculates its revenue limit. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not want the state to change the way it calculates its revenue limit. PLEASESEEAMENDMENT 3, PAGE28 Amendment 4Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site):(1) This would amend Florida Constitution Article VII, Section 4 (Taxation; assessments) and Section 6 (Homestead exemptions). It also would amend Article XII, Section 27, and add Sections 32 and 33, relating to the Schedule for the amendments. (2) In certain circumstances, the law requires the assessed value of homestead and specified nonhomestead property to increase when the just value of the property decreases. Therefore, this amendment provides that the Legislature may, by general law, provide that the assessment of homestead and specified nonhomestead property may not increase if the just value of that property is less than the just value of the property on the preceding January 1, subject to any adjustment in the assessed value due to changes, additions, reductions, or improvements to such property which are assessed as provided for by general law. This amendment takes effect upon approval by the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, shall take effect January 1, 2013. (3) This amendment reduces from 10 percent to 5 percent the limitation on annual changes in assessments of nonhomestead real property. This amendment takes effect upon approval of the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, takes effect January 1, 2013. (4) This amendment also authorizes general law to provide, subject to conditions specified in such law, an additional homestead exemption to every person who establishes the right to receive the homestead exemption provided in the Florida Constitution within 1 year after purchasing the homestead property and who has not owned property in the previous 3 calendar years to which the Florida homestead exemption applied. The additional homestead exemption shall apply to all levies except school district levies. The additional exemption is an amount equal to 50 percent of the homestead propertys just value on January 1 of the year the homestead is established. The additional homestead exemption may not exceed an amount equal to the median just value of all homestead property within the county where the property at issue is located for the calendar year immediately preceding January 1 of the year the homestead is established. The additional exemption shall apply for the shorter of 5 years or the year of sale of the property. The amount of the additional exemption shall be reduced in each subsequent year by an amount equal to 20 percent of the amount of the additional exemption received in the year the homestead was established or by an amount equal to the difference between the just value of the property and the assessed value of the property determined under Article VII, Section 4(d), whichever is greater. Not more than one such exemption shall be allowed per homestead property at one time. The additional exemption applies to property purchased on or after January 1, 2011, if approved by the voters at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, or to property purchased on or after January 1, 2012, if approved by the voters at the 2012 general election. The additional exemption is not available in the sixth and subsequent years after it is first received. The amendment shall take effect upon approval by the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, takes effect January 1, 2013. (5) This amendment also delays until 2023, the repeal, currently scheduled to take effect in 2019, of constitutional amendments adopted in 2008 which limit annual assessment increases for specified nonhomestead real property. This amendment delays until 2022 the submission of an amendment proposing the abrogation of such repeal to the voters.Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment would make Florida property taxation more equitable, stimulate the housing and commercial real estate markets and attract investors to the state.Arguments against:Opponents say it would create tax disTitle on Ballot: Property Tax Limitations; Property Value Decline; Reduction For Nonhomestead Assessment Increases; Delay of Scheduled Repeal Sponsor: The Florida Legislature What it would do: Reduce the maximum annual increase in taxable value of non-homestead properties from 10 percent to 5 percent; provide an extra homestead exemption for first-time home buyers; allow lawmakers to prohibit assessment increases for properties with decreasing market values. If you vote yes: A yes vote means you favor the enhanced tax breaks being proposed. If you vote no: A no vote means you are against the enhanced tax breaks being proposed.

With interest and enthusiasm weve followed presidential election campaigns since Thomas Dewey tried to unseat President Harry Truman in 1948. All the pundits and papers believed Mr. Truman couldnt win re-election with a 36 percent approval rating, but he did. Truman ran a brilliant campaign, which included a whistlestop train tour of the nation, with a speech at every stop. Instead of running against the very successful and do-goody Mr. Dewey, Truman campaigned against a do-nothing Republican Congress. On the morning after the election the Chicago Tribune declared Mr. Dewey the winner. Having been re-elected, a smiling President Truman posed for pictures holding up the erroneous Tribune headline. The lesson of the story is what voters tell pollsters who collect approval ratings is not necessarily how they vote on election day. In 2012 our incumbent president Obama couldnt run against a do-nothing Republican House of Representatives while ignoring his own do-nothing Democratic Senate. Instead, he resurrected his vague but successful 2008 campaign of hope and change. In addition to the two mantras which won his first term election, Mr. Obama added some similarly vague enticements for voters social and economic security and adjustment of income and wealth inequality. Scarcity of specifics in Obama campaigns is clever, not accidental. Its a strategy demonstrated by the vacuous comment of then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi when she urged passage of the Patient Protection and Affrordable Care Act (Obamacare): We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it. Re-elect Mr. Obama and well soon find out what he means by hope, change, security, and inequality. The other prong of the Obama re-election campaign has been creation of an effective referendum on challenger Mitt Romney, whose successes as a businessman, governor, and volunteer manager of the troubled 2002 Olympics are depicted as negative qualifications for a president. The Obama campaign has muddled voters perceptions of the private and political Mr. Romney, who has struggled to corral a variety of hard-core conservative constituencies. The primary and persistent Romney theme has been economic growth, job creation, and resuscitation of the middle class. By selecting Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential running mate however, Mr. Romney picked a candidate with specific positions and proposals on every imaginable issue. The Obama campaign must have been overjoyed at the target Mr. Ryan presents. In his most recent book, famous investigative journalist Bob Woodward characterizes Mr. Obama as an uncertain leader and inexperienced administrator, neither of which detracts www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 5, 2012 Newspaper people, at least those who work for reputable organizations, have some rules and standards to follow. One of those states that employees shouldnt get involved in backing any political causes or candidates, no bumper stickers, etc. Thats a good rule. You generally want your newspaper people to be neutral in coverage, and keep opinions to the opinion pages. But I guarantee that the moment Im finished working at a newspaper, Im going to take up a cause, pushing for a federal law change and a state constitutional amendment. My amendment would read as follows: The Do-Not-Call Registry shall apply to all politicians and political causes. Lets face it, we cant count on our legislators to expand the donot-call list, since they are the biggest violators. I have to admit, when I answer the phone at home now, if its a recording, I hang up after about five words. My wifes a little more patient. Shell listen for a while before hanging up. But its annoying when were sitting there watching a TV show or eating dinner (or both), and we have to interrupt our train of thought to answer the phone. When you derail my train of thought, its very hard for me to get back on track. So I definitely want to stop the phone calls, which obviously are going to persist until Nov. 6 (during the primary I received a call just an hour before the polls were supposed to close). I wanted to put another rule into place, so that when the Caller ID says blocked or unknown, I just simply do not answer. But then I discovered that the cell phones of some people I know come across as unknown, so I really cant do that. Evidently Caller ID has not kept up with the cell phone boom. Besides, some of these political calls come in with Caller ID numbers with out-of-state area codes, making them look legitimate. So for now, Ill just live with it. But be forewarned, politicians. If I ever retire, Ill be out on the corner getting petitions signed to expand the do-not-call list. Im coming after you, and I dont think Ill have any trouble getting it passed.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Today we take a look at Amendments 3 and 4 on the Florida ballot on Nov. 6. These two are somewhat convoluted for voters who have to wade through all the material concerning possible passage. Amendment 3 is titled State Government Revenue Limitation. Sounds good on the surface. It must mean that the state can take less of your money. Well, its not that simple. This calculates how much money the state can get. Proponents say it will enable you to keep money in your pocket, especially in tough times. Opponents say that it can cut revenue so much that the state government can stop operating efficiently. They point to Colorado, of all people, which has a similar law and had some tough times when the economy went south. Feel free to read through this in todays edition, but frankly, it seems like an awful lot of time-wasting, confusing rhetoric. You wont be sure what youre getting if you vote in favor of this (kind of sounds like Obamacare, doesnt it?) so it might be good to just say no. Now for Amendment 4, which has floated around before and been knocked off the ballots by the courts. This time, all that has been corrected and its there for you to vote on. It concerns non-homestead property, in other words, property you own but dont use for your principal residence. It limits the percentage of value that can be increased in the system used to determine the propertys worth. Again, this is one of those that youre not sure what youre getting if you vote for it. You know the saying, if something sounds too good to be true, etc. So when in doubt, again, just vote no. By the way, if you want a good description of the amendments, former County Commissioner Judy Johnson will explain the amendments at the Coalition meeting next Monday, Oct. 8. Maybe we can all learn something. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY More amendments you can reject Do not call should be for politicians Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Time for voters to change their minds is near A centrists viewI have lived in Oak Run since 1995. I am a registered independent/unaffiliated. In June, a pollster asked me two questions. Am I satisfied with the job the President is doing? I answered some yes, some no. If I were to vote today, which candidate would I choose? I answered Ive been a registered Independent for 50 years and often vote for neither Republican or Democrat because I would like to have better choices. This is one of those years. The last three months have changed all that. Every time a Democrat diverts questions about the economy or debt or unrest to Bain or tax returns, they drive me more to the right. If you have a defensible position would you not use it? More recently three episodes on MSNBC closed the deal. First: following Ann Romneys speach at the convention, a three person panel could not find a single nice thing to say about this woman. I switched to FOX just in time to hear Juan Williams (looking bored) write her off as a corporate wife. Nothing nice to say about Ann Romney! Second was a discord about welfare. The Republican was a black man and the Democrat a white woman. After a few shots back and forth, the woman declares I am a Catholic as though that were a supporting factor for welfare. Lets see: a president thats pro contraceptive, pro gay marriage and pro abortion is supported by Catholics? Whats wrong with this picture. Last was a reaction to Romneys tax return. It appears that he gave $4 million to charity and didnt claim it all. The respondent did not praise Romney for donating nearly 30 percent of his income to charity, but rather suggested he would refile after the election and claim a greater deduction. If you are charitable, happily Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED PLEASESEEFLYNN, PAGE9 married, successful, religious and somewhat honest, you are a Republican. Some of these are me, how about you? Bill Riola Oak RunMedia biasFrom one who has voted in presidential elections since 1956, this election cycle is the most one sided Ive ever seen. The so called elite media treats President Obama with kid gloves while Romney is fair game. Its Romney this and Romney that around the clock. While Fox News, the #1 cable channel, covers everything, MSNBC is very selective. Like ignoring the chaos in the middle east which includes Obama and his administrations faulty handling of Benghazigate. It would be nice to have a level playing field but thats not going to happen. Hopefully the (ex) president will soon return to Chicago where he can look at the View. Bob Cronin, Ocala More letters on Page 9 Chances are, if you receive Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or any federal payment, you receive it electronically. More than 90 percent of people getting monthly Social Security benefits already receive electronic payments. If you dont, that will change. There is a U.S. Department of Treasury rule that does away with paper checks for most federal benefit and non-tax payments by March 1, 2013. With a few exceptions, this mandate includes Social Security, SSI, Veterans Affairs, Railroad Retirement Board, Office of Personnel Management benefits, and other non-tax payments. People required to switch have the option of direct deposit to a bank or credit union account or they can have their monthly payment directed into a Direct Express debit card account (Treasurys debit card program). Please visit www.godirect.org to learn more. So, why the push for electronic payments instead of paper checks received in the mail? Theres a list of reasons an electronic payment is better than an old-fashioned paper check. Its safer: no risk of checks being lost or stolen; Its easy and reliable: no waiting for the mail or go to the bank to cash a check; It saves taxpayers money: no cost for postage and paper and printing; Treasury estimates this will save taxpayers $1 billion over 10 years; and Its good for the environment: it saves paper and eliminates the need for physical transportation. If you still get your check in the mail, dont wait for the new rule to go into effect next year sign up for electronic payments now. Please visit www.godirect.org today and begin getting your Social Security and SSI payments the safe, easy, reliable way electronically.Adon Williams is district manager in Ocala for Social Security.

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although you love being the focus of attention, its a good idea to take a few steps back right now to just watch the action. What you see can help with an upcoming decision. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Caution continues to be your watchword this week, as a former colleague tries to reconnect old links. There are still some dark places that need to be illuminated. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Making a good first impression is important. Revealing your often hidden sense of humor can help you get through some of the more awkward situations. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Taking that Cancer Crab image too seriously? Lighten up. Instead of complaining about your problems, start resolving them. A friend would be happy to help. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A widening distance between you and that special person needs to be handled with honesty and sensitivity. Dont let jealousy create an even greater gap between you two. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Congratulations. Your handling of a delicate family matter rates kudos. But no resting on your laurels just yet. You still have to resolve that on-the-job problem. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might surprise everyone by being unusually impulsive this week. But even level-headed Libras need to do the unexpected now and then. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A period of turmoil gives way to a calmer, more settled environment. Use this quieter time to patch up neglected personal and/or professional relationships. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A new relationship could create resentment among family and friends who feel left out of your life. Show them you care by making more time for them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Concentrate on completing all your unfinished tasks before deadline. Youll then be able to use this freed-up time to research new career opportunities. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youre right to try to help colleagues resolve their heated differences. But keep your objectivity and avoid showing any favoritism twixt the two sides. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your personal life continues to show positive changes. Enjoy this happy turn of events, by all means. But be careful not to neglect your workplace obligations. BORN THIS WEEK: People of all ages look to you for advice and encouragement. You would make an excellent counselor. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure from his subtle skills as a politician campaigning for re-election. Our guess is that voters will cast their ballots based on disgust with one or the other political party, primarily their inability or unwillingness to solve problems. Does that suggest Romney or Obama? The answer will be in the ballots, not the polls. As President Truman knew well, voters can be persuaded to change their minds. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 A culture of confrontationAmerica has been invaded by a pandemic of personality disorders. We have become a country of sociopathic-narcissists. We have lost our ability to be patient, tolerant and respectful. Humility, once very prevalent, has been replaced with egotism. Our former culture of discussion, concession and compromise has been reduced to a culture of confrontation. I see our country going down with little hope of ever returning to our former more sensible times. Our personality is our characteristic way of thinking, feeling, behaving and relating to others. People with an antisocial (sociopathic) personality disorder act in a way that disregards the feelings and rights of all other people. They usually lie repeatedly, act impulsively, and get into physical fights easily. In short, they care about no one but themselves. People with a narcissistic personality disorder have a grandiose sense of self importance. They seek admiration from others and fantasize about their unlimited success and/or power. They believe themselves to be special, unique and superior to all others. They believe they are above all laws and rules. One group of psychologists has come to the conclusion that people with a sociopathic narcissistic personality can best be described as having no conscience. This group also agrees that people with this multiple personality disorder (lack of a conscience) cannot be cured by any outside means. No amount of therapy will work since these people believe any therapist is beneath them. They must be cured by themselves from within themselves. If you apply this logic to the 550 plus people (the Supreme Court, the House and Senate and the current president) in Washington, D.C., it becomes clear why our country is so screwed up. Each member of these bodies has an agenda. This agenda does not include that whichs best for America and its citizens. They work to satisfy their own beliefs and that of the lobbyists who fill their pockets and to plan for their own re-election. It has been estimated by non-partisan statistic keepers that our politicians spend 30 percent to 70 percent of their time in office planning for their own re-election. The median time is over 50 percent. These are members of both parties. We no longer have any statesmen in our midst; no leadership! Is it any wonder why the rest of our population has become so confrontational? We are following the example set by our leaders. Americans are killing each other at alarming rates. We have children killing parents, parents killing children, siblings killing each other, friends killing each other and most for reasons that we used to be able to talk out. The media (newspapers and television) have also become very partisan. This exacerbates the problem. Unbiased and balanced media outlets no longer exist. Americans now seldom get all of the truth via the media. Remember, reporting only half of the news is every bit as bad as reporting news that is untrue. So sad! While all politicians and members of the media are at the top of my bad list, entertainers and professional sports people, who love to perform for the media, follow closely. They love being on the front page and being the big story. More than any other individuals who have lived during my lifetime, I have admired Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi (known simply as Gandhi), Martin Luther King and Billy Graham. None of these ever bragged how great they were or how lucky the world was to have them. They simply followed their hearts and sacrificed everything for their beliefs of reaching an honorable goal. Although I am not Catholic, the person I admired most was Mother Teresa. She lived the faith that she believed. Wouldnt it be nice to have a Mother Teresa in Washington? George Cipra Oak RunVision or reality?President Obamas supporters fall into two Groups: 1. those who pay taxes on their income; have earned non-entitlements such as, pensions, Social Security, Medicare; may or may not be politically savvy, and, 2. those who receive government entitlements; pay little or no taxes; probably dont care about politics. If Group 1 considers the following three facts, they will be skeptical of the things that Obama tells them. Many in Group 2 will support whomever promises them more free things. 1. Obama didnt deliver the hope and change for America he promised us in 2008. 2. He told Matt Lauer in February, 2009, that if he didnt turn the economy around in three years, he would be a one-term president. Well, here it is almost four years later and our economy is still dismal. 3. Obama hasnt accomplished anything of real substance during his term. Now, Obama suddenly has this vision of America ... and his supporters believe him ... again. Dont they realize he says what he wants them to hear; he distorts facts to enhance his vision? Undistorted facts do not lie! They are so telling that, anyone can understand them. If Obamas supporters ponder the facts ... without playing Obamas numbers games ... it becomes apparent that his vision wont work. These are your choices: Obamas hypothetical vision of America, or Mitt Romneys realities for America. As a writer said in his Sept. 14, 2012 letter, Americas future (is) in our hands, Think before you vote, our future depends on it!

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com The perpetual lieWhen I was a shop steward for a major union in 1964, I was instructed by the union leadership that the members must vote for Democrats in the election because the Republicans were going to eliminate Social Security for seniors. Our parents and grandparents would go homeless and hungry because of the evil Republicans. That was a lie then as it is today. The SEIU Union (the most frequent visitor to the white house) and the Democrat Party are perpetuating the same lie via commercials on the mass media. Everyone knows that Social Security is going broke, but no one will talk about it because any solution requires some sacrifice or compromise. This country does not like the word sacrifice. The Democrats scoff at any solution to Social Security offered by the opposition, but they have no plan. The best things that happened for retirement was the initiation of the 401K plan .where you contribute a percentage of your income, untaxed, into the plan and the company would match a percentage which also went into your retirement fund. For millions of workers this plan was a solution to retirement woes. This small weekly investment matched by the company grew and became a comfortable nest egg. If I could have invested in a 401K plan early in my work life instead of Social Security, I could have retired a millionaire. Compound interest is a wonderful thing. When voting on Nov. 6, choose the voice of reason, not the voice of perpetual lies. Harold Imgrund Oak Run LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 GUEST COMMENTARIES BY SHELDON RICHMAN Mitt Romney isnt just out of touch; hes also out of sync with the movement to shrink government. In an interview clarifying his now-infamous speech to donors, captured on clandestine video, Romney said, I think people would like to be paying taxes. Come again? He also said, The good news is if you are doing well enough financially that you can pay a tax. Thats good news? Romney apparently had low-income people in mind. But if hed rather see them working than collecting government benefits, the last thing he should want is to reduce the returns to labor which is what income taxation does. Workers should be free to keep the full fruits of their labor. I have an idea for the GOP presidential candidate: Test your belief that people like to pay taxes by proposing to end all penalties for nonpayment. Abolish the IRS. Make taxes voluntary. Then well see who would like to pay and who wouldnt. He says hes for less government. Okay, Mr. Romney, prove it. How many people does he suppose would choose to pay for the occupation of Afghanistan, or the drone attacks on Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia, or the war on certain drug makers, sellers, and consumers? How many would be willing to pay for all the corporate welfare that riddles our so-called free-enterprise system? Speaking of corporate welfare, in his speech Romney had much to say about dependence. There are 47 percent who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. He figures those folks wont be voting for him and his allegedly small-government message. Yet the New York Times reports, The states with the highest percentage of federal filers who do not owe income taxes tend to vote Republican in presidential elections, attributing the information to the Tax Foundation. Research by Dean Lacy, a professor of government at Dartmouth College, has found that states that receive more in federal spending than they pay in taxes have become increasingly Republican in presidential elections. So Romney has the 47 percent wrong. But more important, he overlooks the fact that many low-income people work hard at two or three jobs and are the victims of anticompetitive corporatist policies that build barriers to advancement. But that inconvenient fact aside, low-income people arent the only ones dependent on government. Another group is even more dependent: the people of the corporate world who expect government to provide bailouts, guarantees, and contracts. In the wake of the financial meltdown of 2008, its slightly cruel to stigmatize working-class and poor people who get government benefits, while letting big business and big banks off the hook. Romney supported the financial bailout and, aside from talking vaguely about tax loopholes, does not question the pervasive system of government privilege for big business. The military-industrial complex is a case in point. As author Nick Turse documents, many thousands of American businesses are under contract to the military establishment, making everything from clothing to weapons. Many more invest resources looking for contracts. Private consumers are the losers. If you were to suggest to the corporate executives that they wean their companies from the government, theyd laugh. Its much easier to make your money off the taxpayers rather than take your chances with fickle consumers free to take their business elsewhere. No one has a right to other peoples money. Thats a simple moral precept summed up in the words Thou shalt not steal. Its no less stealing if the government does it for you. Invoking democracy is no help here, because if an individual has no right to steal, it is logically impossible for any group of individuals to have such a right. No matter how many zeros you add together, the sum will be zero. Lets end all dependence on government. Doing it in one fell swoop would be ideal, but short of that, heres a workable strategy: Cut taxes from the bottom up and welfare from the top down. This will move us toward a free society and win popular support along the way.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. Romney, taxes and dependence on government BY ROGER SMITH The election this November will be one of the most important in the lives of todays workers. As CEO of a company that employees more than 5,000 people, I know that the outcome will affect each and every one of them. At virtually every backyard get together these days, most workers discuss and lament the state of the economy. But not in the abstract terms we hear from politicians. These days, the economy is personal. Those who still own homes are relieved that they can still host family and friends, of course. Their homes may be worth less than what they owe, but so far theyve survived The November choice facing workers PLEASESEESMITH, PAGE11 wrapped and packed in boxes.

Dont forget to wear your bonnet to the royal tea.Oak Run TravelOak Run Travel needs a volunteer to coordinate our day trips to interesting places or events in Florida. There are typically 12-15 of these per year and do not include our shows or dinner theatre trips or our casino gambling trips. Examples are the Seafood Festival at Cedar Key, Bok Towers, shopping, Stetson Museum, dog races, etc. An idea person for this volunteer position would be one who suggests potential day trips to the committee and then sees to it that they are scheduled by contacting the venue. Other responsibilities are preparing check requests for payment to the venues and coordinating with the bus coordinator plus preparation of the final trip documents at completion of each trip. This is a very interesting position and can be handled easily by a couple who likes to work together. Current or former hosts are encouraged to consider this as another way to give back to the community. All of our current trip coordinators are also hosts though this is not a prerequisite. Be sure to look over the new fall-winter travel brochure (pink color) that was recently delivered. Pick your trips and get to those sale dates. Following is some information on trips from this brochure. Trip #1 is Sleuths Mystery Dinner Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 17. We have several seats still available; if you like a mystery and food youll love this trip which is only $70 per person. Contact Jim and Patty Waddell to get on the bus before it is sold out. The title for trip #17 should read Florida Mall Shopping as is stated in the description. On trip #21, S Wonderful, the price reduction from $68.50 down to $52 (WOW!) didnt make into the trip description inside the brochure, so take note of that. A little clarification is needed for trip #26, Mid-Week Getaway (2 days). Day one you arrive at the Seminole CasinoImmokalee near Naples and stay at the Hilton Garden Inn where you are treated to a cheese and wine reception followed by dinner and a show at the Broadway Palm. The show is the very funny Menopause the Musical. Day 2, after a full breakfast buffet you stop at the Seminole Casino-Tampa before returning to Oak Run. All of this for just $123 per person. Sale date is Oct. 23. Call Amelia Fiore for more information. Due to complications we are having to reschedule trip #31, Miami Key West, originally planned for Mar. 18-21, 2013. A new date will be announced when we are able to reschedule it. Royal Oaks Ladies 18 Hole GolfOn Tuesday, Sept. 25, we had our fall meeting event.

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVER TISING the fate of foreclosure. Another million workers wont be so lucky next year. For private sector workers, stagnation and declines in real wages are a stark reality. Statistics show that if workers were paid in direct proportion to productivity gains over the last 12 years, the average wage would hover around $31 per hour instead of $10.28. That would be something to celebrate. Construction workers are frustrated to see so little movement to rebuild our national infrastructure. They are frightened that the Project Labor Agreements they rely on to set fair work terms may soon disappear. Public sector workers are losing their right to collective bargaining and being demonized for having had the audacity to negotiate pension benefits. Our newest entrants to the labor force arent having a much better time. A twentysomething who chooses not to go to college will earn $225,000 less over his lifetime than his sister who did go but shell leave college having racked up tens of thousands of dollars, if not more, in debt. And theyre both probably living with their parents. Workers near retirement, meanwhile, are anxious that they wont come close to maintaining their pre-retirement lifestyle. Theyre also nervous about politicians talk of raising the retirement age, cutting Medicare and limiting Social Security. Somewhere today, a grandfather may tell the unemployed young woman sitting next to him that she cant have his job because he cant afford to retire. For our nations 12 million unemployed workers, many of whom who have been looking for work for 40 weeks or more, the discussion often comes around to asking if anyone knows who is hiring. The entry point into the middle class is nowhere in sight. Those are the conversations youll hear at backyard gatherings. Here are our choices: Will we build an economy that works for workers, or vote to empower the few at the expense of the many? Will we vote to elect a president whose policies are about investing in our future, putting people back to work, rebuilding our nations infrastructure, and honoring a workers right to organize and bargain collectively? Will we insist that Social Security not be placed in the hands of private investment banks? Or will we vote to return to failed economic policies that protect the one percent at the expense of workers? Will we vote yes to proposed budget cuts that will suck demand out of our economy, resulting in millions more joining the ranks of the unemployed? Will we vote to return to outdated, outmoded and out-oftouch policies that serve only a wealthy few? We are at a fork in the road. Between now and November, it is my hope that the conversations we have steer us toward economic recovery. Roger Smith is the President and CEO of American Income Life Insurance Company.

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.

But make no mistake even in this confinement for 125 pages, the suspense is palpable. Jack had been waiting on the side of the road in bitter cold for 93 minutes with cars passing him by, which was not surprising given his gigantic size 5 and his bloody, broken nose. Then a red Toyota stops. Inside are two men and a woman all identically dressed in the same shirt. They tell him theyre coming from a corporate training session and are headed for Chicago. Reachers first suspicion is that the shirts look like something from Dollar Store. Reacher spends his time noting more such details and things that just dont add up. He soon concludes that the two men are kidnappers and the woman is a hostage. The men are Alan King and Don McQueen and the woman is Karen Delfuenso, a cocktail waitress. At some point Reacher is asked to drive and that puts him in front of the backseat hostage who improbably sends him coded messages in the rearview mirror by blinking. Earlier in the evening there had been a murder just off the interstate at a deserted Nebraska pumping station as Reacher learns at various roadblocks. Now he wonders if the men in the car are tied to it. There are a few cutaways to FBI agent Julia Sorenson in Nebraska who is on the case. She and Jack will eventually meet and find themselves two sides of the same coin. Meanwhile, Reacher must plan his own survival and that of the attractive hostage. He thinks, It was technically challenging to take out a guy in the front passenger seat while driving at 80 miles an hour. Plan B is definitely called for. From this point on the action becomes intense but also confusing with an alphabet soup of agencies showing up along with terrorists, all of it increasingly hard to track. Lee Child seems to have created a sub-genre called malefiction with his vigilante protagonist. And Hollywood has been quick to notice. This December Tom Cruise will appear as Jack Reacher in a movie version of an earlier novel One Shot.

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Pun Alley readers are obviously fond of good literature. Accordingly, we take note of the big event next Wednesday when the National Book Foundation announces winners of its National Book Award, a literary prize given to American writers. Pun Alley presents its own bookish tales.By the bookA judge in his golden years decided that retirement had become too boring. So he volunteered as a librarian at a nearby library. A week later, the head librarian, a stern woman in her seventies, called him over to her desk. She said, You know, I appreciate that when you were a judge you were stern with lawbreakers. And you carry that with you to this job, which is very commendable. But when someone owes an overdue fine, you cant just... I had to throw the book at him, said the judge. I know, said the librarian, but the Unabridged Websters International Dictionary?Chicken delightA chicken wandered into a library clucking Buk Buk Bukkook! As a joke the librarian put the Chicken Recipes book on the chickens back. The chicken went out the door and down a path still carrying the book. As she walked past a nearby lake a frog announced, Rrredit Rrredit Rrredit.Hillbilly dilemma I dont know what to give Lizzie for her birthday, one hillbilly said to his friend. Give her a book, suggested the friend. The first one replied, She already has one.Short storiesThe publisher greatly overestimated the potential market for his classic fairy tales book. Now whenever he visits his warehouse, hes faced with many Grimm remainders of his folly. The book about Teflon contained no frictional characters. In the days of Queen Elizabeth I, some ladies-inwaiting liked to curl up with a good book, while others were satisfied with just a few pages. The new book is going like wildfire; everybody is burning it. She was thinking about transferring to a job in the periodicals section of the library until she heard they were dealing with all sorts of issues. Shakespeares plays are nothing but famous quotations strung together. Nowadays a book on How To Be Happy Without Money costs thirty dollars. Check out books at the library. Its a novel idea. Elephants use their trunks as a bookmark so they always nose where they stopped reading. Is a book on voyeurism a peeping tome? I just finished a fascinating book, Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Centipedes. It was good reading, but about 60 percent of the book is footnotes. Sitting in the sun reading a book this last summer, a lot of folks became well red. By the time a man can read a woman like a book hes too old to start a library.Coming up dryA 10-year old boy was looking for a book and asked the librarian how to spell tequila. She answered t-e-q-u-l-a. The boy thanked her and went back to his search. A short time later he came to the desk. I just cant find it, he said. What book are you looking for? the librarian asked. The boy replied, Tequila Mockingbird.Computer literateA newly enrolled student walked into the college library to use one of the computers and noticed the encyclopedia volumes stacked on a bookshelf. What are all these books? he asked. Somewhat surprised, the librarian replied that they were encyclopedias. Really? he said. Someone printed out the whole thing?Mac library?A blonde went into the library and said, Id like a cheeseburger, fries, and a coke. The librarian informed her that she was in a library. So the blonde leaned across the counter and whispered to the librarian, Id like a cheeseburger, fries, and a coke.JokersCongress will soon vote on whether to rename the Smithsonian Library the Bob Hope Library. Before he died he donated all his radio and television monologues to the Smithsonian. Over the years only the voters have sent more jokes to Washington.Doctored pagesA surgeon went to return some books he borrowed from the library. The librarian quipped after checking the books, Sir, your books were returned with the last page missing in every single book. The surgeon replied, I cant stop myself from removing an appendix whenever I see one.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com If I heard it once, I have heard it a million times and this week was no exception. In fact, the words carelessly tumble from my lips on many occasions, some of which have been perilously near the conclusion of my sermons. Most preachers never conclude their sermons, they just quit when they cannot indulge the congregation another minute longer. Someone once asked a famous preacher what it meant when he said, Now, in conclusion ... He thought for a moment and then replied, Nothing. Preachers are not the only ones inflicted with this verbosity virus. Watching a news broadcast recently, I heard a politician tumble headlong into the same abyss; Were going to make some changes around here, he proclaimed, and thats my final word on the subject. It does not really matter which politician pontificated thusly, for all of them have said it at one time or another and usually it is never their final word on any subject. Several things are wrong with that statement. First, when a politician uses the word were he never means to include himself. It is just a word he uses to confuse the subject at hand. Someone once made this observation, if all the politicians were laid end to end I would not be surprised. Secondly, the only change most politicians are interested in is the change in my pocket. They have committees devoted to figuring out how they can change the change in my pocket to their pocket. The slickness to which they do this is most remarkable. Thirdly, there is no such thing as a final word among politicians. Every politician insists on having the last word on any subject even though he knows nothing about the subject at hand. It is rumored by some unidentified source that the entire political sorority has one brain, which they share. The Democrats have the left side, the Republicans have the right side and they have one intent; mouth in motion at all times. Since they share the same mouth, they both sound alike. When a politician has nothing to say you can be sure he will say it most profusely. Today, the only difference between a Republican and a Democrat is the spelling. One can spell and the other cannot. Every politician has two faces, before the election and after election. What a politician says before being elected has absolutely no relationship with what he or she will say after the election. The only thing absolutely certain is the newly elected politician will have a lot to say, but not much. Once elected their only strategy is to stay elected. They will do everything and anything to get my vote. One thing that can be said about the political institution in our country, it is an equal opportunity liars club. Women have as much opportunity to join this truth-challenged extravaganza as the men. I do not know who makes better liars, men or women. The feminine side of this auspicious group has made a miraculous progress in catching up to their male counterparts. They both seemed quite adept in the practice. Many elected officials go to great lengths to keep their constituency from knowing where they stand on the issues. They are seated on committees so they do not have to reveal where they stand. They are good at sitting and pontificating but bad when it comes to standing for anything, which makes them believe their constituency will fall for anything. And we usually do. The lawmakers of our day are great change agents, to use a contemporary phrase. Their opinion on important issues changes with every new poll published. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on your point of view, for our friendly politicians, opinion polls can be given every hour on the hour. Of course, the more important the issue the more the politician reforms his opinion. A politician should have the cleanest mind in our country because they change it so much. Unfortunately, the exchange is usually down. Perhaps the best final words any politician could utter are, I wont run again. Usually when a politician says this, it means he is currently running from something or someone. Regrettably, the only change that comes with a new election is the name on the office door of the public servant. The bolts and nuts of our political system can be boiled down to; the politicians bolt for or from any excuse and we are nuts for electing them to any office. I sometimes get weary of all this superfluous change. It is true; the more things change the more they remain the same. What I want to change never does and what I do not want to change does. You can imagine what comfort I get from the Bible that never changes despite the efforts of some people. Two verses are particularly comforting to me. One from the Old Testament: For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. (Malachi 3:6 KJV.) One from the New Testament: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 KJV.) When it comes to final words, I want that word to come from someone who will not capriciously change that word and upset my life. I can always trust Jesus Christ to give me a word I can always count on.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

His website is www.jamessnyderministries.com My final last words, finally, well almost OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 18 tury of life. Margaret lived through the First World War and the flu epidemic that followed. She raised children during the Great Depression and worked hard through the Second World War. Added to these were Korea; Vietnam and numerous comparatively minor military skirmishes up until the War on Terror. She saw the towers fall on Sept. 11 and wept along with everyone else. From the early days of flight to landing a man on the moon, Margaret saw it all. From her yard outside her home in Astor, she watched in horror as the Challenger Space Shuttle blew apart in the cool crisp blue sky. She still recalls her feelings of despair at that horrible event. It would take a book to relate all of the wonderful things and difficult times that Margaret has been through. She rejoices in the fact that she has had two wonderful men in her life; two beautiful and loving daughters and a host of family members that still keep in touch with her. To what does she credit her long life? She never smoked or drank, she tells me, but she loves chocolate. Margaret is a treasure to her family; to her friends and to this community. Shes a joy to be around and she and her daughter Shirley still enjoy going to dinner with our Cherrywood Singles Club on Sundays. Look for her in the near future on the Today Show and if you get the chance, when you see her out and about, wish her a very Happy Birthday. From Your ReporterBeing your humble correspondent is a privilege and an honor because I get to meet so many nice people. Usually these meetings take place at the dances; dinners; sports events; health activities or other happy times. This week, I had a particular honor however; an interview with Margaret Kender and her wonderful daughter, Shirley Skaggs. Margaret soon will turn 104 years of age. She is a remarkable woman who is an inspiration to be around; converse with; and listen to. Her daughter Shirley is an equally engaging individual who shares her Mothers wit; wisdom and dignity. My personal thanks goes out to these two ladies for giving me the opportunity to get to know them and to write about them. I would join with her family and friends in wishing Margaret a very Happy Birthday. If you have any suggestions or comments for this column please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. While the Jewish religion has many seemingly obscure and non-rational rules and customs, one of the strangest is the one of shatnetz, that is of mixing different elements together that are unnatural. For instance, we have the kosher law of not mixing milk products with meat, i.e. a cheeseburger is off the list for an observant Jew. There is also the prohibition of yoking a donkey and an ox together to say, plow a field. One could argue that putting those two animals together would produce unnecessary strain and pathos for the donkey, which could be a reason for the law while the kosher law, has been reasoned to be a plea for kindness to animals. In actuality, there is really no concrete reason for these laws just as the one for shatnetz or the mixture of fibers, linen with wool. The shatnetz prohibition is found in Leviticus 19:19 and Deuteronomy 22:25 and 22:9-11. It is just one of those laws called Chok, a Torah law where a rationale is not obviously apparent. All garments need to be checked so that the fibers of the linen (flax) and wool are not put together in the same garment. Most Jews are hardly aware of this law, but for the very observant, careful examination of the fabrics used in clothes construction is a must. To fulfill this need, a series of shatnetz labs are located around the country, usually in areas where there is a concentration of Orthodox Jewish people. In the U.S., Holocaust survivor, Joseph Rosenberger, set up the first shatnetz lab in Brooklyn, New York, in 1941. Now there are checkers and labs devoted to the practice of finding shatnetz all over the country. The Shatnetz Testers of America and the National Committee of Shatnetz Testers and Researchers are two organizations that publicize and promote the ancient practice. Both men and women can be shatnetz checkers. Since most of the garments checked are made of wool, the checkers are mainly looking for the presence of linen. If linen is found and can be removed from the garment, then the item is ok to be worn, if not, it may have to be discarded. Shatnetz training for women tends to be more complicated due to the different rules women need to follow. Certification in the process takes two years with the final ok given by a rabbi who deals with the process. Once a person is certified, he/she can check for shatnetz and a report is sent to the rabbi in charge of this custom. After reading the report sent to the rabbi, he signs off on it and the garment is rendered shatnetzfree for the client. Higher end garments tend to have more problems with shatnetz than cheaper ones because the more expensive goods use more natural fibers. While the labels on womens clothing state the fabrics, special attention has to be made to the trims since embroidery, brocades and the like could contain shatnetz. The seemingly most innocuous parts of a garment can also be suspect as in the case of a supposedly shatnetz-free custom made suit which was discovered to have linen in the collar facing. If linen is discovered in a woolen suit, the piece can usually be replaced by a synthetic material since the linen is usually found in collars or cuffs or used as interfacing in the garment. It is the thread of linen that the checkers look for and substitute whenever possible. The individual thread is examined and divided into fibers under a microscope to determine if it is shatnetz. It is permissible to use mixed fibers in furniture stuffing, baseball gloves and the like. At least, the materials are not going to waste. To bring all this to home, my tallit (prayer shawl), which came from Israel, had a shatnetz-free label on it. I believe the garment is made of synthetic fibers but it was still interesting to have the label claiming it was checked for shatnetz by the rabbinical authority of Haifa, Israel. Now, just when you thought it was safe to buy a new suit or outfit, I should inform you, that wearing a pigskin jacket is completely kosher, according to Rabbi Shmuel Kogan of Chabad Organization. Since the hide is tanned, there are no impurities to render it forbidden to Jews. Go figure!

steering wheels of new cars. Her salary of $25 a week, was very good money in the day. Joseph and Margaret were blessed with two daughters; Shirley and Marguerite. Between the two of them, they have given Margaret four grandchildren and five great grandchildren. During those early years, Margaret recalls suffering through the depression like so many others. She had borrowed money from her mother to make the down payment on a house but in order to make the payments; they needed to sell their car. With two daughters in tow, Margaret would walk to Holy Name Catholic Church; walk or take a streetcar to the shops and stores. Her husband, Joseph walked to work for eight years just to provide for his family. When you consider the hard, cold winters of Ohio that was no easy feat for either of them. Shirley, Margarets daughter comments that she and her sister never knew they were poor. This is a feeling conveyed by so many children of the Depression era, Parents kept their needs very private and gave their children a sense of well being and security. Margaret and Joseph excelled at this. Thirty two years passed and Joseph died at the age of 54. The family was devastated at the loss but continued to stay close. Margaret continually praises her daughters and brags on them with love and affection. One day in Ohio, Margaret was attending the funeral of a friend who had passed away. A man came up to her and asked, Arent you Margaret Liphart? Taken somewhat aback, she replied that she had been and then asked the stranger, Do I know you? Well you should, he answered, I carried your books for you back in school. The man was William Kender and Margaret and he had been in grade school together. That was 50 years prior to this meeting. While William had family ties in Ohio, he was living in New York in a small suburb of Buffalo called Lawton. Several visits back to Ohio and some long distance correspondence later, Margaret and William got married. Reluctantly, she moved to New York and they took up residence in Lawton. That was in 1969. William and Margaret bought a trailer and began to be snowbirds. They both loved Florida and William loved to fish. Finally, in 1977, they had had enough of the cold weather up North. They took up residence in Astor, next to the St. Johns River. For the next 20 years they lived there in peace and love until William passed away. Margaret used to walk four miles a day down the dirt road near their home. At age of 88, while watering the lawn, she tripped over the hose and fell, breaking her hip. She half smiles as she describes lying helplessly in the water and sand. Eventually a neighbor came by and was able to get her some help. All that happened in 1997 and Margaret moved in with her daughter Shirley here at Cherrywood. She uses a walker; has hearing aids and wears glasses but she looks and acts like a woman in her 60s or 70s. Her mind is sharp and she has a quick and easy smile that lights up a room. She has survived many things in her more than a cenCherrywoods 100 Days of Summer closed out its season with the biggest and best Octoberfest celebration ever. The concluding event of the season brought out a record number of residents to enjoy a delicious bratwurst dinner; to dance and sway to the Northern Sounds band and to celebrate this traditional German festival. Last month, 250 residents came out to party and we were hoping for at least 251 for Octoberfest in order to set a record. In fact, 265 people showed up, so we easily broke the record and set a new attendance standard. In spite of the large turnout, all of our guests were served their meal within 50 minutes. This was a testament to the organizational skills of Cherrywood Social Committee Chairman Jay OHern and his staff. After dining on Bratwurst that was cooked to perfection on the grills, not to mention the other side dishes; the guests turned their attention to the Northern Sounds band. This group is made up of multi-talented performers who have a vast repertoire of songs at their disposal. People danced; sang along with the drinking songs; swayed back and forth to the beat of the music and in general just enjoyed the atmosphere. The entire evening was free to our residents thanks to Cherrywood Property Management and Chris and Mario Zacco. Mario showed up to pass out the awards to our raffle winners. Joanne Lauder won the dinner gift card; while Christi Giovanniello; Bill and Lorraine Lavertue all won 50/50 drawings. The big winner was Marion County Hospice which will receive $162 from the proceeds of the raffles. These events would not be possible and certainly would not go as smoothly without the help of a dedicated staff. Working in the kitchen with Jay were Beverly Idone; SanDee Spencer; Peggy Konar; and Donna James. Our grill masters were Bill Brotherhood and Dave Siegel. General support and handling the drinks were Marty Duesel; Bill Mahar; Gene Wachsmuth; Fred OHern and Mick James. Rich and Monica Becotte handled the very successful 50/50 tickets for the nights festivities. Planning and coordination are the keys to any successful event and this one was no exception. Serving with Jay OHern to put this entire evening together was his brother Fred and the CWPM Staff including Geri; Justin; Fred; and Doug. All of our volunteers are to be congratulated and thanked for their diligence and outstanding performance on Saturday night.

Spotlight on 104 Years of ExcellenceOn Oct. 30, 1908, in the small town of Dayton, Ohio, a little girl by the name of Margaret Liphart was born. She was one of five children in the family and probably, with the exception of friends and immediate relatives, her birth went unheralded and barely noticed. Margarets father, Andrew, was from Hungary and never learned to speak English. Being a mason, he was well suited for the construction industry and earned his living in that field. Her mother, Elizabeth, stayed at home raising the five children. In those early days, milkmen delivered their bottles to the door step by horsedrawn carriages; ice men delivered blocks of ice for the new fangled ice boxes; and Wilbur and Orville Wright worked down the street in their lab. Margaret still remembers walking to school and Orville standing out in front of the shop. He would always speak to her but fearing he was flirting, she never answered. At 16 years of age, Margaret went to work for a tobacco company in Dayton. She operated a machine that manufactured cigars. After a short time, a girl friend encouraged her to go to work for General Motors and Margaret took the opportunity to apply for the job. She worked at GM for seven years and during that time she met a man by the name of Joseph Balogh. While out driving one day, Margaret and Joseph were with another couple. Off on a deserted field that later became Wright Airport, sat a single engine biplane. Margarets girl friend was afraid to go up in it and after some taunting; she dared Margaret to give it a try. Fearless, she got into the two seat cockpit and flew for the first time in her life. The questioned begged so I asked her, How did you like it? With a wry smile on her face, Margaret answered, It wasnt the best thing. Joseph was an avid sports enthusiast who was quite an accomplished baseball pitcher. He was so good in fact that Dayton Rubber recruited him for their company team and provided him with a supervisors position with the company.

Spotlight on 104 Years of ExcellenceOn Oct. 30, 1908, in the small town of Dayton, Ohio, a little girl by the name of Margaret Liphart was born. She was one of five children in the family and probably, with the exception of friends and immediate relatives, her birth went unheralded and barely noticed. Margarets father, Andrew, was from Hungary and never learned to speak English. Being a mason, he was well suited for the construction industry and earned his living in that field. Her mother, Elizabeth, stayed at home raising the five children. In those early days, milkmen delivered their bottles to the door step by horsedrawn carriages; ice men delivered blocks of ice for the new fangled ice boxes; and Wilbur and Orville Wright worked down the street in their lab. Margaret still remembers walking to school and Orville standing out in front of the shop. He would always speak to her but fearing he was flirting, she never answered. At 16 years of age, Margaret went to work for a tobacco company in Dayton. She operated a machine that manufactured cigars. After a short time, a girl friend encouraged her to go to work for General Motors and Margaret took the opportunity to apply for the job. She worked at GM for seven years and during that time she met a man by the name of Joseph Balogh. While out driving one day, Margaret and Joseph were with another couple. Off on a deserted field that later became Wright Airport, sat a single engine biplane. Margarets girl friend was afraid to go up in it and after some taunting; she dared Margaret to give it a try. Fearless, she got into the two seat cockpit and flew for the first time in her life. The questioned begged so I asked her, How did you like it? With a wry smile on her face, Margaret answered, It wasnt the best thing. Joseph was an avid sports enthusiast who was quite an accomplished baseball pitcher. He was so good in fact that Dayton Rubber recruited him for their company team and provided him with a supervisors position with the company. The pair courted and in 1928 when Margaret turned 20 years of age, she and Joseph were married. She continued working at GM shipping wood for the SEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE18 000CRJQ Mon.

steering wheels of new cars. Her salary of $25 a week, was very good money in the day. Joseph and Margaret were blessed with two daughters; Shirley and Marguerite. Between the two of them, they have given Margaret four grandchildren and five great grandchildren. During those early years, Margaret recalls suffering through the depression like so many others. She had borrowed money from her mother to make the down payment on a house but in order to make the payments; they needed to sell their car. With two daughters in tow, Margaret would walk to Holy Name Catholic Church; walk or take a streetcar to the shops and stores. Her husband, Joseph walked to work for eight years just to provide for his family. When you consider the hard, cold winters of Ohio that was no easy feat for either of them. Shirley, Margarets daughter comments that she and her sister never knew they were poor. This is a feeling conveyed by so many children of the Depression era, Parents kept their needs very private and gave their children a sense of well being and security. Margaret and Joseph excelled at this. Thirty two years passed and Joseph died at the age of 54. The family was devastated at the loss but continued to stay close. Margaret continually praises her daughters and brags on them with love and affection. One day in Ohio, Margaret was attending the funeral of a friend who had passed away. A man came up to her and asked, Arent you Margaret Liphart? Taken somewhat aback, she replied that she had been and then asked the stranger, Do I know you? Well you should, he answered, I carried your books for you back in school. The man was William Kender and Margaret and he had been in grade school together. That was 50 years prior to this meeting. While William had family ties in Ohio, he was living in New York in a small suburb of Buffalo called Lawton. Several visits back to Ohio and some long distance correspondence later, Margaret and William got married. Reluctantly, she moved to New York and they took up residence in Lawton. That was in 1969. William and Margaret bought a trailer and began to be snowbirds. They both loved Florida and William loved to fish. Finally, in 1977, they had had enough of the cold weather up North. They took up residence in Astor, next to the St. Johns River. For the next 20 years they lived there in peace and love until William passed away. Margaret used to walk four miles a day down the dirt road near their home. At age of 88, while watering the lawn, she tripped over the hose and fell, breaking her hip. She half smiles as she describes lying helplessly in the water and sand. Eventually a neighbor came by and was able to get her some help. All that happened in 1997 and Margaret moved in with her daughter Shirley here at Cherrywood. She uses a walker; has hearing aids and wears glasses but she looks and acts like a woman in her 60s or 70s. Her mind is sharp and she has a quick and easy smile that lights up a room. She has survived many things in her more than a cenCherrywoods 100 Days of Summer closed out its season with the biggest and best Octoberfest celebration ever. The concluding event of the season brought out a record number of residents to enjoy a delicious bratwurst dinner; to dance and sway to the Northern Sounds band and to celebrate this traditional German festival. Last month, 250 residents came out to party and we were hoping for at least 251 for Octoberfest in order to set a record. In fact, 265 people showed up, so we easily broke the record and set a new attendance standard. In spite of the large turnout, all of our guests were served their meal within 50 minutes. This was a testament to the organizational skills of Cherrywood Social Committee Chairman Jay OHern and his staff. After dining on Bratwurst that was cooked to perfection on the grills, not to mention the other side dishes; the guests turned their attention to the Northern Sounds band. This group is made up of multi-talented performers who have a vast repertoire of songs at their disposal. People danced; sang along with the drinking songs; swayed back and forth to the beat of the music and in general just enjoyed the atmosphere. The entire evening was free to our residents thanks to Cherrywood Property Management and Chris and Mario Zacco. Mario showed up to pass out the awards to our raffle winners. Joanne Lauder won the dinner gift card; while Christi Giovanniello; Bill and Lorraine Lavertue all won 50/50 drawings. The big winner was Marion County Hospice which will receive $162 from the proceeds of the raffles. These events would not be possible and certainly would not go as smoothly without the help of a dedicated staff. Working in the kitchen with Jay were Beverly Idone; SanDee Spencer; Peggy Konar; and Donna James. Our grill masters were Bill Brotherhood and Dave Siegel. General support and handling the drinks were Marty Duesel; Bill Mahar; Gene Wachsmuth; Fred OHern and Mick James. Rich and Monica Becotte handled the very successful 50/50 tickets for the nights festivities. Planning and coordination are the keys to any successful event and this one was no exception. Serving with Jay OHern to put this entire evening together was his brother Fred and the CWPM Staff including Geri; Justin; Fred; and Doug. All of our volunteers are to be congratulated and thanked for their diligence and outstanding performance on Saturday night.

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com If I heard it once, I have heard it a million times and this week was no exception. In fact, the words carelessly tumble from my lips on many occasions, some of which have been perilously near the conclusion of my sermons. Most preachers never conclude their sermons, they just quit when they cannot indulge the congregation another minute longer. Someone once asked a famous preacher what it meant when he said, Now, in conclusion ... He thought for a moment and then replied, Nothing. Preachers are not the only ones inflicted with this verbosity virus. Watching a news broadcast recently, I heard a politician tumble headlong into the same abyss; Were going to make some changes around here, he proclaimed, and thats my final word on the subject. It does not really matter which politician pontificated thusly, for all of them have said it at one time or another and usually it is never their final word on any subject. Several things are wrong with that statement. First, when a politician uses the word were he never means to include himself. It is just a word he uses to confuse the subject at hand. Someone once made this observation, if all the politicians were laid end to end I would not be surprised. Secondly, the only change most politicians are interested in is the change in my pocket. They have committees devoted to figuring out how they can change the change in my pocket to their pocket. The slickness to which they do this is most remarkable. Thirdly, there is no such thing as a final word among politicians. Every politician insists on having the last word on any subject even though he knows nothing about the subject at hand. It is rumored by some unidentified source that the entire political sorority has one brain, which they share. The Democrats have the left side, the Republicans have the right side and they have one intent; mouth in motion at all times. Since they share the same mouth, they both sound alike. When a politician has nothing to say you can be sure he will say it most profusely. Today, the only difference between a Republican and a Democrat is the spelling. One can spell and the other cannot. Every politician has two faces, before the election and after election. What a politician says before being elected has absolutely no relationship with what he or she will say after the election. The only thing absolutely certain is the newly elected politician will have a lot to say, but not much. Once elected their only strategy is to stay elected. They will do everything and anything to get my vote. One thing that can be said about the political institution in our country, it is an equal opportunity liars club. Women have as much opportunity to join this truth-challenged extravaganza as the men. I do not know who makes better liars, men or women. The feminine side of this auspicious group has made a miraculous progress in catching up to their male counterparts. They both seemed quite adept in the practice. Many elected officials go to great lengths to keep their constituency from knowing where they stand on the issues. They are seated on committees so they do not have to reveal where they stand. They are good at sitting and pontificating but bad when it comes to standing for anything, which makes them believe their constituency will fall for anything. And we usually do. The lawmakers of our day are great change agents, to use a contemporary phrase. Their opinion on important issues changes with every new poll published. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on your point of view, for our friendly politicians, opinion polls can be given every hour on the hour. Of course, the more important the issue the more the politician reforms his opinion. A politician should have the cleanest mind in our country because they change it so much. Unfortunately, the exchange is usually down. Perhaps the best final words any politician could utter are, I wont run again. Usually when a politician says this, it means he is currently running from something or someone. Regrettably, the only change that comes with a new election is the name on the office door of the public servant. The bolts and nuts of our political system can be boiled down to; the politicians bolt for or from any excuse and we are nuts for electing them to any office. I sometimes get weary of all this superfluous change. It is true; the more things change the more they remain the same. What I want to change never does and what I do not want to change does. You can imagine what comfort I get from the Bible that never changes despite the efforts of some people. Two verses are particularly comforting to me. One from the Old Testament: For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. (Malachi 3:6 KJV.) One from the New Testament: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 KJV.) When it comes to final words, I want that word to come from someone who will not capriciously change that word and upset my life. I can always trust Jesus Christ to give me a word I can always count on.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

His website is www.jamessnyderministries.com My final last words, finally, well almost OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 18 tury of life. Margaret lived through the First World War and the flu epidemic that followed. She raised children during the Great Depression and worked hard through the Second World War. Added to these were Korea; Vietnam and numerous comparatively minor military skirmishes up until the War on Terror. She saw the towers fall on Sept. 11 and wept along with everyone else. From the early days of flight to landing a man on the moon, Margaret saw it all. From her yard outside her home in Astor, she watched in horror as the Challenger Space Shuttle blew apart in the cool crisp blue sky. She still recalls her feelings of despair at that horrible event. It would take a book to relate all of the wonderful things and difficult times that Margaret has been through. She rejoices in the fact that she has had two wonderful men in her life; two beautiful and loving daughters and a host of family members that still keep in touch with her. To what does she credit her long life? She never smoked or drank, she tells me, but she loves chocolate. Margaret is a treasure to her family; to her friends and to this community. Shes a joy to be around and she and her daughter Shirley still enjoy going to dinner with our Cherrywood Singles Club on Sundays. Look for her in the near future on the Today Show and if you get the chance, when you see her out and about, wish her a very Happy Birthday. From Your ReporterBeing your humble correspondent is a privilege and an honor because I get to meet so many nice people. Usually these meetings take place at the dances; dinners; sports events; health activities or other happy times. This week, I had a particular honor however; an interview with Margaret Kender and her wonderful daughter, Shirley Skaggs. Margaret soon will turn 104 years of age. She is a remarkable woman who is an inspiration to be around; converse with; and listen to. Her daughter Shirley is an equally engaging individual who shares her Mothers wit; wisdom and dignity. My personal thanks goes out to these two ladies for giving me the opportunity to get to know them and to write about them. I would join with her family and friends in wishing Margaret a very Happy Birthday. If you have any suggestions or comments for this column please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. While the Jewish religion has many seemingly obscure and non-rational rules and customs, one of the strangest is the one of shatnetz, that is of mixing different elements together that are unnatural. For instance, we have the kosher law of not mixing milk products with meat, i.e. a cheeseburger is off the list for an observant Jew. There is also the prohibition of yoking a donkey and an ox together to say, plow a field. One could argue that putting those two animals together would produce unnecessary strain and pathos for the donkey, which could be a reason for the law while the kosher law, has been reasoned to be a plea for kindness to animals. In actuality, there is really no concrete reason for these laws just as the one for shatnetz or the mixture of fibers, linen with wool. The shatnetz prohibition is found in Leviticus 19:19 and Deuteronomy 22:25 and 22:9-11. It is just one of those laws called Chok, a Torah law where a rationale is not obviously apparent. All garments need to be checked so that the fibers of the linen (flax) and wool are not put together in the same garment. Most Jews are hardly aware of this law, but for the very observant, careful examination of the fabrics used in clothes construction is a must. To fulfill this need, a series of shatnetz labs are located around the country, usually in areas where there is a concentration of Orthodox Jewish people. In the U.S., Holocaust survivor, Joseph Rosenberger, set up the first shatnetz lab in Brooklyn, New York, in 1941. Now there are checkers and labs devoted to the practice of finding shatnetz all over the country. The Shatnetz Testers of America and the National Committee of Shatnetz Testers and Researchers are two organizations that publicize and promote the ancient practice. Both men and women can be shatnetz checkers. Since most of the garments checked are made of wool, the checkers are mainly looking for the presence of linen. If linen is found and can be removed from the garment, then the item is ok to be worn, if not, it may have to be discarded. Shatnetz training for women tends to be more complicated due to the different rules women need to follow. Certification in the process takes two years with the final ok given by a rabbi who deals with the process. Once a person is certified, he/she can check for shatnetz and a report is sent to the rabbi in charge of this custom. After reading the report sent to the rabbi, he signs off on it and the garment is rendered shatnetzfree for the client. Higher end garments tend to have more problems with shatnetz than cheaper ones because the more expensive goods use more natural fibers. While the labels on womens clothing state the fabrics, special attention has to be made to the trims since embroidery, brocades and the like could contain shatnetz. The seemingly most innocuous parts of a garment can also be suspect as in the case of a supposedly shatnetz-free custom made suit which was discovered to have linen in the collar facing. If linen is discovered in a woolen suit, the piece can usually be replaced by a synthetic material since the linen is usually found in collars or cuffs or used as interfacing in the garment. It is the thread of linen that the checkers look for and substitute whenever possible. The individual thread is examined and divided into fibers under a microscope to determine if it is shatnetz. It is permissible to use mixed fibers in furniture stuffing, baseball gloves and the like. At least, the materials are not going to waste. To bring all this to home, my tallit (prayer shawl), which came from Israel, had a shatnetz-free label on it. I believe the garment is made of synthetic fibers but it was still interesting to have the label claiming it was checked for shatnetz by the rabbinical authority of Haifa, Israel. Now, just when you thought it was safe to buy a new suit or outfit, I should inform you, that wearing a pigskin jacket is completely kosher, according to Rabbi Shmuel Kogan of Chabad Organization. Since the hide is tanned, there are no impurities to render it forbidden to Jews. Go figure!

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Pun Alley readers are obviously fond of good literature. Accordingly, we take note of the big event next Wednesday when the National Book Foundation announces winners of its National Book Award, a literary prize given to American writers. Pun Alley presents its own bookish tales.By the bookA judge in his golden years decided that retirement had become too boring. So he volunteered as a librarian at a nearby library. A week later, the head librarian, a stern woman in her seventies, called him over to her desk. She said, You know, I appreciate that when you were a judge you were stern with lawbreakers. And you carry that with you to this job, which is very commendable. But when someone owes an overdue fine, you cant just... I had to throw the book at him, said the judge. I know, said the librarian, but the Unabridged Websters International Dictionary?Chicken delightA chicken wandered into a library clucking Buk Buk Bukkook! As a joke the librarian put the Chicken Recipes book on the chickens back. The chicken went out the door and down a path still carrying the book. As she walked past a nearby lake a frog announced, Rrredit Rrredit Rrredit.Hillbilly dilemma I dont know what to give Lizzie for her birthday, one hillbilly said to his friend. Give her a book, suggested the friend. The first one replied, She already has one.Short storiesThe publisher greatly overestimated the potential market for his classic fairy tales book. Now whenever he visits his warehouse, hes faced with many Grimm remainders of his folly. The book about Teflon contained no frictional characters. In the days of Queen Elizabeth I, some ladies-inwaiting liked to curl up with a good book, while others were satisfied with just a few pages. The new book is going like wildfire; everybody is burning it. She was thinking about transferring to a job in the periodicals section of the library until she heard they were dealing with all sorts of issues. Shakespeares plays are nothing but famous quotations strung together. Nowadays a book on How To Be Happy Without Money costs thirty dollars. Check out books at the library. Its a novel idea. Elephants use their trunks as a bookmark so they always nose where they stopped reading. Is a book on voyeurism a peeping tome? I just finished a fascinating book, Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Centipedes. It was good reading, but about 60 percent of the book is footnotes. Sitting in the sun reading a book this last summer, a lot of folks became well red. By the time a man can read a woman like a book hes too old to start a library.Coming up dryA 10-year old boy was looking for a book and asked the librarian how to spell tequila. She answered t-e-q-u-l-a. The boy thanked her and went back to his search. A short time later he came to the desk. I just cant find it, he said. What book are you looking for? the librarian asked. The boy replied, Tequila Mockingbird.Computer literateA newly enrolled student walked into the college library to use one of the computers and noticed the encyclopedia volumes stacked on a bookshelf. What are all these books? he asked. Somewhat surprised, the librarian replied that they were encyclopedias. Really? he said. Someone printed out the whole thing?Mac library?A blonde went into the library and said, Id like a cheeseburger, fries, and a coke. The librarian informed her that she was in a library. So the blonde leaned across the counter and whispered to the librarian, Id like a cheeseburger, fries, and a coke.JokersCongress will soon vote on whether to rename the Smithsonian Library the Bob Hope Library. Before he died he donated all his radio and television monologues to the Smithsonian. Over the years only the voters have sent more jokes to Washington.Doctored pagesA surgeon went to return some books he borrowed from the library. The librarian quipped after checking the books, Sir, your books were returned with the last page missing in every single book. The surgeon replied, I cant stop myself from removing an appendix whenever I see one.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVER TISING the fate of foreclosure. Another million workers wont be so lucky next year. For private sector workers, stagnation and declines in real wages are a stark reality. Statistics show that if workers were paid in direct proportion to productivity gains over the last 12 years, the average wage would hover around $31 per hour instead of $10.28. That would be something to celebrate. Construction workers are frustrated to see so little movement to rebuild our national infrastructure. They are frightened that the Project Labor Agreements they rely on to set fair work terms may soon disappear. Public sector workers are losing their right to collective bargaining and being demonized for having had the audacity to negotiate pension benefits. Our newest entrants to the labor force arent having a much better time. A twentysomething who chooses not to go to college will earn $225,000 less over his lifetime than his sister who did go but shell leave college having racked up tens of thousands of dollars, if not more, in debt. And theyre both probably living with their parents. Workers near retirement, meanwhile, are anxious that they wont come close to maintaining their pre-retirement lifestyle. Theyre also nervous about politicians talk of raising the retirement age, cutting Medicare and limiting Social Security. Somewhere today, a grandfather may tell the unemployed young woman sitting next to him that she cant have his job because he cant afford to retire. For our nations 12 million unemployed workers, many of whom who have been looking for work for 40 weeks or more, the discussion often comes around to asking if anyone knows who is hiring. The entry point into the middle class is nowhere in sight. Those are the conversations youll hear at backyard gatherings. Here are our choices: Will we build an economy that works for workers, or vote to empower the few at the expense of the many? Will we vote to elect a president whose policies are about investing in our future, putting people back to work, rebuilding our nations infrastructure, and honoring a workers right to organize and bargain collectively? Will we insist that Social Security not be placed in the hands of private investment banks? Or will we vote to return to failed economic policies that protect the one percent at the expense of workers? Will we vote yes to proposed budget cuts that will suck demand out of our economy, resulting in millions more joining the ranks of the unemployed? Will we vote to return to outdated, outmoded and out-oftouch policies that serve only a wealthy few? We are at a fork in the road. Between now and November, it is my hope that the conversations we have steer us toward economic recovery. Roger Smith is the President and CEO of American Income Life Insurance Company.

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. Peggy Hostetler, pastor of the Oakbrook Center for Spiritual Living.

But make no mistake even in this confinement for 125 pages, the suspense is palpable. Jack had been waiting on the side of the road in bitter cold for 93 minutes with cars passing him by, which was not surprising given his gigantic size 5 and his bloody, broken nose. Then a red Toyota stops. Inside are two men and a woman all identically dressed in the same shirt. They tell him theyre coming from a corporate training session and are headed for Chicago. Reachers first suspicion is that the shirts look like something from Dollar Store. Reacher spends his time noting more such details and things that just dont add up. He soon concludes that the two men are kidnappers and the woman is a hostage. The men are Alan King and Don McQueen and the woman is Karen Delfuenso, a cocktail waitress. At some point Reacher is asked to drive and that puts him in front of the backseat hostage who improbably sends him coded messages in the rearview mirror by blinking. Earlier in the evening there had been a murder just off the interstate at a deserted Nebraska pumping station as Reacher learns at various roadblocks. Now he wonders if the men in the car are tied to it. There are a few cutaways to FBI agent Julia Sorenson in Nebraska who is on the case. She and Jack will eventually meet and find themselves two sides of the same coin. Meanwhile, Reacher must plan his own survival and that of the attractive hostage. He thinks, It was technically challenging to take out a guy in the front passenger seat while driving at 80 miles an hour. Plan B is definitely called for. From this point on the action becomes intense but also confusing with an alphabet soup of agencies showing up along with terrorists, all of it increasingly hard to track. Lee Child seems to have created a sub-genre called malefiction with his vigilante protagonist. And Hollywood has been quick to notice. This December Tom Cruise will appear as Jack Reacher in a movie version of an earlier novel One Shot.

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com The perpetual lieWhen I was a shop steward for a major union in 1964, I was instructed by the union leadership that the members must vote for Democrats in the election because the Republicans were going to eliminate Social Security for seniors. Our parents and grandparents would go homeless and hungry because of the evil Republicans. That was a lie then as it is today. The SEIU Union (the most frequent visitor to the white house) and the Democrat Party are perpetuating the same lie via commercials on the mass media. Everyone knows that Social Security is going broke, but no one will talk about it because any solution requires some sacrifice or compromise. This country does not like the word sacrifice. The Democrats scoff at any solution to Social Security offered by the opposition, but they have no plan. The best things that happened for retirement was the initiation of the 401K plan .where you contribute a percentage of your income, untaxed, into the plan and the company would match a percentage which also went into your retirement fund. For millions of workers this plan was a solution to retirement woes. This small weekly investment matched by the company grew and became a comfortable nest egg. If I could have invested in a 401K plan early in my work life instead of Social Security, I could have retired a millionaire. Compound interest is a wonderful thing. When voting on Nov. 6, choose the voice of reason, not the voice of perpetual lies. Harold Imgrund Oak Run LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 GUEST COMMENTARIES BY SHELDON RICHMAN Mitt Romney isnt just out of touch; hes also out of sync with the movement to shrink government. In an interview clarifying his now-infamous speech to donors, captured on clandestine video, Romney said, I think people would like to be paying taxes. Come again? He also said, The good news is if you are doing well enough financially that you can pay a tax. Thats good news? Romney apparently had low-income people in mind. But if hed rather see them working than collecting government benefits, the last thing he should want is to reduce the returns to labor which is what income taxation does. Workers should be free to keep the full fruits of their labor. I have an idea for the GOP presidential candidate: Test your belief that people like to pay taxes by proposing to end all penalties for nonpayment. Abolish the IRS. Make taxes voluntary. Then well see who would like to pay and who wouldnt. He says hes for less government. Okay, Mr. Romney, prove it. How many people does he suppose would choose to pay for the occupation of Afghanistan, or the drone attacks on Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia, or the war on certain drug makers, sellers, and consumers? How many would be willing to pay for all the corporate welfare that riddles our so-called free-enterprise system? Speaking of corporate welfare, in his speech Romney had much to say about dependence. There are 47 percent who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. He figures those folks wont be voting for him and his allegedly small-government message. Yet the New York Times reports, The states with the highest percentage of federal filers who do not owe income taxes tend to vote Republican in presidential elections, attributing the information to the Tax Foundation. Research by Dean Lacy, a professor of government at Dartmouth College, has found that states that receive more in federal spending than they pay in taxes have become increasingly Republican in presidential elections. So Romney has the 47 percent wrong. But more important, he overlooks the fact that many low-income people work hard at two or three jobs and are the victims of anticompetitive corporatist policies that build barriers to advancement. But that inconvenient fact aside, low-income people arent the only ones dependent on government. Another group is even more dependent: the people of the corporate world who expect government to provide bailouts, guarantees, and contracts. In the wake of the financial meltdown of 2008, its slightly cruel to stigmatize working-class and poor people who get government benefits, while letting big business and big banks off the hook. Romney supported the financial bailout and, aside from talking vaguely about tax loopholes, does not question the pervasive system of government privilege for big business. The military-industrial complex is a case in point. As author Nick Turse documents, many thousands of American businesses are under contract to the military establishment, making everything from clothing to weapons. Many more invest resources looking for contracts. Private consumers are the losers. If you were to suggest to the corporate executives that they wean their companies from the government, theyd laugh. Its much easier to make your money off the taxpayers rather than take your chances with fickle consumers free to take their business elsewhere. No one has a right to other peoples money. Thats a simple moral precept summed up in the words Thou shalt not steal. Its no less stealing if the government does it for you. Invoking democracy is no help here, because if an individual has no right to steal, it is logically impossible for any group of individuals to have such a right. No matter how many zeros you add together, the sum will be zero. Lets end all dependence on government. Doing it in one fell swoop would be ideal, but short of that, heres a workable strategy: Cut taxes from the bottom up and welfare from the top down. This will move us toward a free society and win popular support along the way.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. Romney, taxes and dependence on government BY ROGER SMITH The election this November will be one of the most important in the lives of todays workers. As CEO of a company that employees more than 5,000 people, I know that the outcome will affect each and every one of them. At virtually every backyard get together these days, most workers discuss and lament the state of the economy. But not in the abstract terms we hear from politicians. These days, the economy is personal. Those who still own homes are relieved that they can still host family and friends, of course. Their homes may be worth less than what they owe, but so far theyve survived The November choice facing workers PLEASESEESMITH, PAGE11 wrapped and packed in boxes. Sharon is making a variety of surprise favors while Pat Callahan and Carol Cunningham are collected special prizes for the raffle. Proceeds from the event go to CFs horticultural program for student scholarships. Dont forget to wear your bonnet to the royal tea.Oak Run TravelOak Run Travel needs a volunteer to coordinate our day trips to interesting places or events in Florida. There are typically 12-15 of these per year and do not include our shows or dinner theatre trips or our casino gambling trips. Examples are the Seafood Festival at Cedar Key, Bok Towers, shopping, Stetson Museum, dog races, etc. An idea person for this volunteer position would be one who suggests potential day trips to the committee and then sees to it that they are scheduled by contacting the venue. Other responsibilities are preparing check requests for payment to the venues and coordinating with the bus coordinator plus preparation of the final trip documents at completion of each trip. This is a very interesting position and can be handled easily by a couple who likes to work together. Current or former hosts are encouraged to consider this as another way to give back to the community. All of our current trip coordinators are also hosts though this is not a prerequisite. Be sure to look over the new fall-winter travel brochure (pink color) that was recently delivered. Pick your trips and get to those sale dates. Following is some information on trips from this brochure. Trip #1 is Sleuths Mystery Dinner Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 17. We have several seats still available; if you like a mystery and food youll love this trip which is only $70 per person. Contact Jim and Patty Waddell to get on the bus before it is sold out. The title for trip #17 should read Florida Mall Shopping as is stated in the description. On trip #21, S Wonderful, the price reduction from $68.50 down to $52 (WOW!) didnt make into the trip description inside the brochure, so take note of that. A little clarification is needed for trip #26, Mid-Week Getaway (2 days). Day one you arrive at the Seminole CasinoImmokalee near Naples and stay at the Hilton Garden Inn where you are treated to a cheese and wine reception followed by dinner and a show at the Broadway Palm. The show is the very funny Menopause the Musical. Day 2, after a full breakfast buffet you stop at the Seminole Casino-Tampa before returning to Oak Run. All of this for just $123 per person. Sale date is Oct. 23. Call Amelia Fiore for more information. Due to complications we are having to reschedule trip #31, Miami Key West, originally planned for Mar. 18-21, 2013. A new date will be announced when we are able to reschedule it. Royal Oaks Ladies 18 Hole GolfOn Tuesday, Sept. 25, we had our fall meeting event. We played a team game, Two Net Best Balls, followed by a delicious soup and salad bar luncheon in the Royal Oaks dining room and then a league meeting. The winning teams of the golf game were: First place Elsa Berbig, Judy Klein, Maureen Edwards, and Carolyn Collins. Second place Pat Blackburn, Salita Timmermeyer, Sheila Adams, and Rhonda LaBlanc. Maureen Edwards was closest to the pin.

Friday, October 5, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, October 5, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although you love being the focus of attention, its a good idea to take a few steps back right now to just watch the action. What you see can help with an upcoming decision. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Caution continues to be your watchword this week, as a former colleague tries to reconnect old links. There are still some dark places that need to be illuminated. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Making a good first impression is important. Revealing your often hidden sense of humor can help you get through some of the more awkward situations. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Taking that Cancer Crab image too seriously? Lighten up. Instead of complaining about your problems, start resolving them. A friend would be happy to help. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A widening distance between you and that special person needs to be handled with honesty and sensitivity. Dont let jealousy create an even greater gap between you two. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Congratulations. Your handling of a delicate family matter rates kudos. But no resting on your laurels just yet. You still have to resolve that on-the-job problem. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might surprise everyone by being unusually impulsive this week. But even level-headed Libras need to do the unexpected now and then. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A period of turmoil gives way to a calmer, more settled environment. Use this quieter time to patch up neglected personal and/or professional relationships. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A new relationship could create resentment among family and friends who feel left out of your life. Show them you care by making more time for them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Concentrate on completing all your unfinished tasks before deadline. Youll then be able to use this freed-up time to research new career opportunities. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youre right to try to help colleagues resolve their heated differences. But keep your objectivity and avoid showing any favoritism twixt the two sides. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your personal life continues to show positive changes. Enjoy this happy turn of events, by all means. But be careful not to neglect your workplace obligations. BORN THIS WEEK: People of all ages look to you for advice and encouragement. You would make an excellent counselor. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure from his subtle skills as a politician campaigning for re-election. Our guess is that voters will cast their ballots based on disgust with one or the other political party, primarily their inability or unwillingness to solve problems. Does that suggest Romney or Obama? The answer will be in the ballots, not the polls. As President Truman knew well, voters can be persuaded to change their minds. FLYNNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 A culture of confrontationAmerica has been invaded by a pandemic of personality disorders. We have become a country of sociopathic-narcissists. We have lost our ability to be patient, tolerant and respectful. Humility, once very prevalent, has been replaced with egotism. Our former culture of discussion, concession and compromise has been reduced to a culture of confrontation. I see our country going down with little hope of ever returning to our former more sensible times. Our personality is our characteristic way of thinking, feeling, behaving and relating to others. People with an antisocial (sociopathic) personality disorder act in a way that disregards the feelings and rights of all other people. They usually lie repeatedly, act impulsively, and get into physical fights easily. In short, they care about no one but themselves. People with a narcissistic personality disorder have a grandiose sense of self importance. They seek admiration from others and fantasize about their unlimited success and/or power. They believe themselves to be special, unique and superior to all others. They believe they are above all laws and rules. One group of psychologists has come to the conclusion that people with a sociopathic narcissistic personality can best be described as having no conscience. This group also agrees that people with this multiple personality disorder (lack of a conscience) cannot be cured by any outside means. No amount of therapy will work since these people believe any therapist is beneath them. They must be cured by themselves from within themselves. If you apply this logic to the 550 plus people (the Supreme Court, the House and Senate and the current president) in Washington, D.C., it becomes clear why our country is so screwed up. Each member of these bodies has an agenda. This agenda does not include that whichs best for America and its citizens. They work to satisfy their own beliefs and that of the lobbyists who fill their pockets and to plan for their own re-election. It has been estimated by non-partisan statistic keepers that our politicians spend 30 percent to 70 percent of their time in office planning for their own re-election. The median time is over 50 percent. These are members of both parties. We no longer have any statesmen in our midst; no leadership! Is it any wonder why the rest of our population has become so confrontational? We are following the example set by our leaders. Americans are killing each other at alarming rates. We have children killing parents, parents killing children, siblings killing each other, friends killing each other and most for reasons that we used to be able to talk out. The media (newspapers and television) have also become very partisan. This exacerbates the problem. Unbiased and balanced media outlets no longer exist. Americans now seldom get all of the truth via the media. Remember, reporting only half of the news is every bit as bad as reporting news that is untrue. So sad! While all politicians and members of the media are at the top of my bad list, entertainers and professional sports people, who love to perform for the media, follow closely. They love being on the front page and being the big story. More than any other individuals who have lived during my lifetime, I have admired Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi (known simply as Gandhi), Martin Luther King and Billy Graham. None of these ever bragged how great they were or how lucky the world was to have them. They simply followed their hearts and sacrificed everything for their beliefs of reaching an honorable goal. Although I am not Catholic, the person I admired most was Mother Teresa. She lived the faith that she believed. Wouldnt it be nice to have a Mother Teresa in Washington? George Cipra Oak RunVision or reality?President Obamas supporters fall into two Groups: 1. those who pay taxes on their income; have earned non-entitlements such as, pensions, Social Security, Medicare; may or may not be politically savvy, and, 2. those who receive government entitlements; pay little or no taxes; probably dont care about politics. If Group 1 considers the following three facts, they will be skeptical of the things that Obama tells them. Many in Group 2 will support whomever promises them more free things. 1. Obama didnt deliver the hope and change for America he promised us in 2008. 2. He told Matt Lauer in February, 2009, that if he didnt turn the economy around in three years, he would be a one-term president. Well, here it is almost four years later and our economy is still dismal. 3. Obama hasnt accomplished anything of real substance during his term. Now, Obama suddenly has this vision of America ... and his supporters believe him ... again. Dont they realize he says what he wants them to hear; he distorts facts to enhance his vision? Undistorted facts do not lie! They are so telling that, anyone can understand them. If Obamas supporters ponder the facts ... without playing Obamas numbers games ... it becomes apparent that his vision wont work. These are your choices: Obamas hypothetical vision of America, or Mitt Romneys realities for America. As a writer said in his Sept. 14, 2012 letter, Americas future (is) in our hands, Think before you vote, our future depends on it!

Stop in and see why weve been Marion Countys leader for over 34 years! With interest and enthusiasm weve followed presidential election campaigns since Thomas Dewey tried to unseat President Harry Truman in 1948. All the pundits and papers believed Mr. Truman couldnt win re-election with a 36 percent approval rating, but he did. Truman ran a brilliant campaign, which included a whistlestop train tour of the nation, with a speech at every stop. Instead of running against the very successful and do-goody Mr. Dewey, Truman campaigned against a do-nothing Republican Congress. On the morning after the election the Chicago Tribune declared Mr. Dewey the winner. Having been re-elected, a smiling President Truman posed for pictures holding up the erroneous Tribune headline. The lesson of the story is what voters tell pollsters who collect approval ratings is not necessarily how they vote on election day. In 2012 our incumbent president Obama couldnt run against a do-nothing Republican House of Representatives while ignoring his own do-nothing Democratic Senate. Instead, he resurrected his vague but successful 2008 campaign of hope and change. In addition to the two mantras which won his first term election, Mr. Obama added some similarly vague enticements for voters social and economic security and adjustment of income and wealth inequality. Scarcity of specifics in Obama campaigns is clever, not accidental. Its a strategy demonstrated by the vacuous comment of then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi when she urged passage of the Patient Protection and Affrordable Care Act (Obamacare): We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it. Re-elect Mr. Obama and well soon find out what he means by hope, change, security, and inequality. The other prong of the Obama re-election campaign has been creation of an effective referendum on challenger Mitt Romney, whose successes as a businessman, governor, and volunteer manager of the troubled 2002 Olympics are depicted as negative qualifications for a president. The Obama campaign has muddled voters perceptions of the private and political Mr. Romney, who has struggled to corral a variety of hard-core conservative constituencies. The primary and persistent Romney theme has been economic growth, job creation, and resuscitation of the middle class. By selecting Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential running mate however, Mr. Romney picked a candidate with specific positions and proposals on every imaginable issue. The Obama campaign must have been overjoyed at the target Mr. Ryan presents. In his most recent book, famous investigative journalist Bob Woodward characterizes Mr. Obama as an uncertain leader and inexperienced administrator, neither of which detracts www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 5, 2012 Newspaper people, at least those who work for reputable organizations, have some rules and standards to follow. One of those states that employees shouldnt get involved in backing any political causes or candidates, no bumper stickers, etc. Thats a good rule. You generally want your newspaper people to be neutral in coverage, and keep opinions to the opinion pages. But I guarantee that the moment Im finished working at a newspaper, Im going to take up a cause, pushing for a federal law change and a state constitutional amendment. My amendment would read as follows: The Do-Not-Call Registry shall apply to all politicians and political causes. Lets face it, we cant count on our legislators to expand the donot-call list, since they are the biggest violators. I have to admit, when I answer the phone at home now, if its a recording, I hang up after about five words. My wifes a little more patient. Shell listen for a while before hanging up. But its annoying when were sitting there watching a TV show or eating dinner (or both), and we have to interrupt our train of thought to answer the phone. When you derail my train of thought, its very hard for me to get back on track. So I definitely want to stop the phone calls, which obviously are going to persist until Nov. 6 (during the primary I received a call just an hour before the polls were supposed to close). I wanted to put another rule into place, so that when the Caller ID says blocked or unknown, I just simply do not answer. But then I discovered that the cell phones of some people I know come across as unknown, so I really cant do that. Evidently Caller ID has not kept up with the cell phone boom. Besides, some of these political calls come in with Caller ID numbers with out-of-state area codes, making them look legitimate. So for now, Ill just live with it. But be forewarned, politicians. If I ever retire, Ill be out on the corner getting petitions signed to expand the do-not-call list. Im coming after you, and I dont think Ill have any trouble getting it passed.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Today we take a look at Amendments 3 and 4 on the Florida ballot on Nov. 6. These two are somewhat convoluted for voters who have to wade through all the material concerning possible passage. Amendment 3 is titled State Government Revenue Limitation. Sounds good on the surface. It must mean that the state can take less of your money. Well, its not that simple. This calculates how much money the state can get. Proponents say it will enable you to keep money in your pocket, especially in tough times. Opponents say that it can cut revenue so much that the state government can stop operating efficiently. They point to Colorado, of all people, which has a similar law and had some tough times when the economy went south. Feel free to read through this in todays edition, but frankly, it seems like an awful lot of time-wasting, confusing rhetoric. You wont be sure what youre getting if you vote in favor of this (kind of sounds like Obamacare, doesnt it?) so it might be good to just say no. Now for Amendment 4, which has floated around before and been knocked off the ballots by the courts. This time, all that has been corrected and its there for you to vote on. It concerns non-homestead property, in other words, property you own but dont use for your principal residence. It limits the percentage of value that can be increased in the system used to determine the propertys worth. Again, this is one of those that youre not sure what youre getting if you vote for it. You know the saying, if something sounds too good to be true, etc. So when in doubt, again, just vote no. By the way, if you want a good description of the amendments, former County Commissioner Judy Johnson will explain the amendments at the Coalition meeting next Monday, Oct. 8. Maybe we can all learn something. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY More amendments you can reject Do not call should be for politicians Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Time for voters to change their minds is near A centrists viewI have lived in Oak Run since 1995. I am a registered independent/unaffiliated. In June, a pollster asked me two questions. Am I satisfied with the job the President is doing? I answered some yes, some no. If I were to vote today, which candidate would I choose? I answered Ive been a registered Independent for 50 years and often vote for neither Republican or Democrat because I would like to have better choices. This is one of those years. The last three months have changed all that. Every time a Democrat diverts questions about the economy or debt or unrest to Bain or tax returns, they drive me more to the right. If you have a defensible position would you not use it? More recently three episodes on MSNBC closed the deal. First: following Ann Romneys speach at the convention, a three person panel could not find a single nice thing to say about this woman. I switched to FOX just in time to hear Juan Williams (looking bored) write her off as a corporate wife. Nothing nice to say about Ann Romney! Second was a discord about welfare. The Republican was a black man and the Democrat a white woman. After a few shots back and forth, the woman declares I am a Catholic as though that were a supporting factor for welfare. Lets see: a president thats pro contraceptive, pro gay marriage and pro abortion is supported by Catholics? Whats wrong with this picture. Last was a reaction to Romneys tax return. It appears that he gave $4 million to charity and didnt claim it all. The respondent did not praise Romney for donating nearly 30 percent of his income to charity, but rather suggested he would refile after the election and claim a greater deduction. If you are charitable, happily Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED PLEASESEEFLYNN, PAGE9 married, successful, religious and somewhat honest, you are a Republican. Some of these are me, how about you? Bill Riola Oak RunMedia biasFrom one who has voted in presidential elections since 1956, this election cycle is the most one sided Ive ever seen. The so called elite media treats President Obama with kid gloves while Romney is fair game. Its Romney this and Romney that around the clock. While Fox News, the #1 cable channel, covers everything, MSNBC is very selective. Like ignoring the chaos in the middle east which includes Obama and his administrations faulty handling of Benghazigate. It would be nice to have a level playing field but thats not going to happen. Hopefully the (ex) president will soon return to Chicago where he can look at the View. Bob Cronin, Ocala More letters on Page 9 Chances are, if you receive Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or any federal payment, you receive it electronically. More than 90 percent of people getting monthly Social Security benefits already receive electronic payments. If you dont, that will change. There is a U.S. Department of Treasury rule that does away with paper checks for most federal benefit and non-tax payments by March 1, 2013. With a few exceptions, this mandate includes Social Security, SSI, Veterans Affairs, Railroad Retirement Board, Office of Personnel Management benefits, and other non-tax payments. People required to switch have the option of direct deposit to a bank or credit union account or they can have their monthly payment directed into a Direct Express debit card account (Treasurys debit card program). Please visit www.godirect.org to learn more. So, why the push for electronic payments instead of paper checks received in the mail? Theres a list of reasons an electronic payment is better than an old-fashioned paper check. Its safer: no risk of checks being lost or stolen; Its easy and reliable: no waiting for the mail or go to the bank to cash a check; It saves taxpayers money: no cost for postage and paper and printing; Treasury estimates this will save taxpayers $1 billion over 10 years; and Its good for the environment: it saves paper and eliminates the need for physical transportation. If you still get your check in the mail, dont wait for the new rule to go into effect next year sign up for electronic payments now. Please visit www.godirect.org today and begin getting your Social Security and SSI payments the safe, easy, reliable way electronically.Adon Williams is district manager in Ocala for Social Security.

The district is customizing and testing the app now. The free app, called School Connect, is available in the Apple and Android app stores to users of smart phones and other devices. Once users download the free app, they can choose to receive push notifications from any school. Similar to text messages, these notifications can be immediate in case of an emergency. In the future, they may also remind subscribers about early release days, events, athletic competitions, club meetings, and other district and school functions. The app, provided free to the district and users at no taxpayer expense, links to the Parent Portal with student grades, school lunch menus, school addresses and contact information, school web sites, and education-related resources. It also provides GPS mapping and navigation links and multiple language options including Spanish. The app was created by School Connect, an Oklahoma-based mobile app developer for K-12 school systems. Within 24 hours of its initial launch in October 2011, School Connect was a Top 25 free app at the Apple store. To date, the app is available in 93 school districts in eight states including Florida.

Amendment 3Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site):This proposed amendment to the State Constitution replaces the existing state revenue limitation based on Florida personal income growth with a new state revenue limitation based on inflation and population changes. Under the amendment, state revenues, as defined in the amendment, collected in excess of the revenue limitation must be deposited into the budget stabilization fund until the fund reaches its maximum balance, and thereafter shall be used for the support and maintenance of public schools by reducing the minimum financial effort required from school districts for participation in a state-funded education finance program, or, if the minimum financial effort is no longer required, returned to the taxpayers. The Legislature may increase the state revenue limitation through a bill approved by a super majority vote of each house of the Legislature. The Legislature may also submit a proposed increase in the state revenue limitation to the voters. The Legislature must implement this proposed amendment by general law. The amendment will take effect upon approval by the electors and will first apply to the 2014-2015 state fiscal year.Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment would ensure that the state budget never grows beyond a familys ability to pay the taxes and fees needed to fund that growth. They say it would make government more efficient.Arguments against:Critics say that during tough economic times, when tax revenues drop and there is a greater need for government services, this amendment would make it impossible for agencies to meet demand, even when there is available revenue. They say it threatens funding for critical government services like health care and education.Should the state change the way it calculates its revenue limit?Since 1995, Florida has set a cap for the amount of revenue it can spend every year from taxes and fees imposed on everything from gasoline and tobacco sales to business licenses and auto titles. Any excess revenue is to be deposited in the states rainy day fund or returned to taxpayers, rather than be spent by the government. The cap is considered by its backers to be a self-imposed restraint on government growth. The current version is set using a formula based on annual changes in Florida personal income, a cumulative total of all personal earnings such as wages, dividends, rent or interest income received in a given year by Florida residents. To date, state revenue collections have never exceeded the cap (largely due to rising personal income and falling tax rates). If passed, Amendment 3 would impose a stricter formula for calculating the revenue limit and, as a result, increase the likelihood it would limit government spending. The new formula would be based on annual population growth and inflation, instead of personal income. Those indicators are considered less volatile than personal income growth and, therefore, more likely to constrain growth in state revenues than the current limitation, according to a state Senate analysis of Amendment 3. In fact, the analysis shows revenues would have exceeded the limits in fiscal years 2004-05 and 2005-06 had the revenue limitation proposed in Amendment 3 been in effect since 1994. Supporters say the cap is needed to protect Floridas economy. We have witnessed first-hand how the government can take too much when the economy is good, former Senate President Mike Haridopolis said in a prepared statement. (Amendment 3) wisely limits state spending. Overuse of taxpayer dollars is an unwise tactic that only hinders our states growth. However, opponents fear catastrophic results during recessionary times or if a natural disaster strikes. With strict revenue limits in place, the state might be hard-pressed to fund necessary services. They point to Colorado, which enacted a cap in 1992, as an example of what potentially can go wrong. With its strict revenue limits, Colorados government was strapped to fund education and provide other public services when its economy softened. The state ultimately loosened the rules for setting its revenue limits. It was disastrous for (Colorado), for their education, for their health care, state Sen. Nan Rich, D-Weston, told the Associated Press article in May 2011. The measure passed the Legislature Title on Ballot: State Government Revenue Limitation Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would set a state revenue limit each year based on a formula that considers population growth and inflation instead of using the current method of calculating the revenue limit based on personal income. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you want the state to change the way it calculates its revenue limit. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not want the state to change the way it calculates its revenue limit. PLEASESEEAMENDMENT 3, PAGE28 Amendment 4Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site):(1) This would amend Florida Constitution Article VII, Section 4 (Taxation; assessments) and Section 6 (Homestead exemptions). It also would amend Article XII, Section 27, and add Sections 32 and 33, relating to the Schedule for the amendments. (2) In certain circumstances, the law requires the assessed value of homestead and specified nonhomestead property to increase when the just value of the property decreases. Therefore, this amendment provides that the Legislature may, by general law, provide that the assessment of homestead and specified nonhomestead property may not increase if the just value of that property is less than the just value of the property on the preceding January 1, subject to any adjustment in the assessed value due to changes, additions, reductions, or improvements to such property which are assessed as provided for by general law. This amendment takes effect upon approval by the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, shall take effect January 1, 2013. (3) This amendment reduces from 10 percent to 5 percent the limitation on annual changes in assessments of nonhomestead real property. This amendment takes effect upon approval of the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, takes effect January 1, 2013. (4) This amendment also authorizes general law to provide, subject to conditions specified in such law, an additional homestead exemption to every person who establishes the right to receive the homestead exemption provided in the Florida Constitution within 1 year after purchasing the homestead property and who has not owned property in the previous 3 calendar years to which the Florida homestead exemption applied. The additional homestead exemption shall apply to all levies except school district levies. The additional exemption is an amount equal to 50 percent of the homestead propertys just value on January 1 of the year the homestead is established. The additional homestead exemption may not exceed an amount equal to the median just value of all homestead property within the county where the property at issue is located for the calendar year immediately preceding January 1 of the year the homestead is established. The additional exemption shall apply for the shorter of 5 years or the year of sale of the property. The amount of the additional exemption shall be reduced in each subsequent year by an amount equal to 20 percent of the amount of the additional exemption received in the year the homestead was established or by an amount equal to the difference between the just value of the property and the assessed value of the property determined under Article VII, Section 4(d), whichever is greater. Not more than one such exemption shall be allowed per homestead property at one time. The additional exemption applies to property purchased on or after January 1, 2011, if approved by the voters at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, or to property purchased on or after January 1, 2012, if approved by the voters at the 2012 general election. The additional exemption is not available in the sixth and subsequent years after it is first received. The amendment shall take effect upon approval by the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, takes effect January 1, 2013. (5) This amendment also delays until 2023, the repeal, currently scheduled to take effect in 2019, of constitutional amendments adopted in 2008 which limit annual assessment increases for specified nonhomestead real property. This amendment delays until 2022 the submission of an amendment proposing the abrogation of such repeal to the voters.Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment would make Florida property taxation more equitable, stimulate the housing and commercial real estate markets and attract investors to the state.Arguments against:Opponents say it would create tax disTitle on Ballot: Property Tax Limitations; Property Value Decline; Reduction For Nonhomestead Assessment Increases; Delay of Scheduled Repeal Sponsor: The Florida Legislature What it would do: Reduce the maximum annual increase in taxable value of non-homestead properties from 10 percent to 5 percent; provide an extra homestead exemption for first-time home buyers; allow lawmakers to prohibit assessment increases for properties with decreasing market values. If you vote yes: A yes vote means you favor the enhanced tax breaks being proposed. If you vote no: A no vote means you are against the enhanced tax breaks being proposed.

As with all proposed constitutional amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved, the new state revenue limitation becomes effective in fiscal year 2014-15.HistoryFlorida is among as many as 30 states to adopt revenue or spending limits, according to a review by the National Conference of State Legislatures. Colorados is the most controversial, and among the strictest. Adopted in 1992, and called the Taxpayers Bill of Rights (TABOR), it limits both state revenues and revenues from local government. It requires voter approval before taxes can be raised, and its cap is tied to changes in population and inflation. Floridas revenue limit, passed by nearly 60 percent of the voters in 1994, is not as strict as the limits Colorado passed. Florida caps state revenues only, and uses a formula tied to changes in personal income. Revenues neared the cap in Florida the first few years after its passage. Since that time, however, revenues subject to the limitation have generally grown more slowly than personal income, according to a Florida Senate staff analysis. That analysis points to a number of reasons for the widening gap between the limit and revenues: Tax cuts enacted by Legislature beginning in 1999; reductions in estate tax revenues resulting from changes in federal law; and the effects of the recession. In 2005, Colorado eased its revenue limits amid a deepening fiscal crisis. Since then, a number of states have rejected strict revenue limits. In Florida in 2008, 2009 and 2010, legislation to impose stricter revenue limits failed to pass the Legislature. That changed in 2011, when the Legislature passed what became Amendment 3. AMENDMENT 3CONTINUED FROM PAGE 26 parities and strip an estimated $1 billion from the tax base over the next three years at a time when local governments are struggling to provide basic services. Should the state enhance tax exemptions for non-homesteaded properties and first-time homebuyers? Amendment 4 extends tax breaks to property owners and first-time property buyers. Its most consequential provisions would: 1) Prevent the assessed value of homesteaded and specified non-homesteaded properties from increasing if the market value of that property decreases compared to the previous year. This would allow the Legislature to eliminate a provision in the current law known as recapture, which can cause the taxable value of a property to rise even if its market value drops; 2) Reduce from 10 percent to 5 percent the cap on annual increases in the assessments of specified non-homesteaded properties such as residential rental property, seasonal homes, and commercial property; 3) Authorize an additional homestead exemption to homebuyers who qualify for the existing exemption and who are firsttime buyers or have not owned property during the previous three years or longer. The additional exemption would phase out over five years and be equal to 50 percent of the market value of the property but not greater than the median market value of all homesteaded properties in the county where the property is located. Proponents say the tax breaks will stimulate the housing and commercial real estate markets. They also say it will help property owners in a down economy. Critics say the proposal will hurt cashstrapped school districts, cities and counties already forced to cut services. Total tax revenue losses over a three-year period have been estimated by the state at nearly $1 billion. The bill to include this amendment on the 2012 ballot passed comfortably in the House by a 105-11 vote, and passed in the Senate by a closer vote of 25-12. Although several questions are raised in this one proposed amendment, voters will be casting a single vote on whether to approve all of them or defeat all of them. As with all amendments on the ballot, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. It passed the provisions in the amendment would take effect Jan. 1, 2013.HistoryIn 2008, 64 percent of the voters approved a constitutional amendment providing for a $50,000 homestead exemption. The $50,000 is subtracted from the assessed value of an eligible home and property taxes are calculated based on that lower amount. 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 in Florida or in any other state. In addition to the homestead exemption, state law also caps annual increases in property assessments used to calculate tax bills.

To address that perceived inequity, the amendment that voters approved in 2008 to raise the homestead exemption to $50,000 also placed a 10 percent cap on annual assessment increases for non-homesteaded properties. A 2010 Proposal In 2009, after the bubble burst on Floridas housing market, lawmakers passed a proposed amendment that included a benefit for first-time homebuyers and a reduction in the cap on non-homesteaded property from 10 percent to 5 percent. The first-time homebuyer benefit was meant to stimulate the housing market by offering new buyers more equal footing with existing homeowners whose assessed values are depressed by receiving the Save Our Homes benefit for years. Reducing the cap on the non-homesteaded properties was meant to give relief to landlords, snowbirds and the owners of commercial property. AMENDMENT 4CONTINUED FROM PAGE 28 The Florida Chamber of Commerce said in 2010 that lowering the assessment cap to 5 percent for non-homestead property was a key to making the tax burden fairer for businesses. Critics of the 2010 proposal feared local governments and school districts would suffer the brunt of further property tax breaks. If approved, the amendment would have cost those local entities hundreds of millions of dollars, state economists estimated. The amendment was opposed by the Florida Education Association. On May 1, 2009, the final measure passed the Legislature. But the proposal was challenged in court by a group of citizens and labor unions and two months later a circuit court judge ordered them removed from the ballot, finding that its summary lacked details about the measure, such as the dates when the tax breaks would have gone into effect. The state Supreme Court upheld the lower court decision.

Third of a series on candidates who appeared at a recent forum.BY JIM CLARK EditorCandidates for supervisor of election took the floor at a recent forum at the downtown library. First up was Judge Cochran, who is currently serving as the public information officer at the Sheriffs Office. The former media worker at Gannett and New York Times Broadcast spoke about getting more people involved, trying to eliminate voter suppression. The Democrat praised early voting and absentee ballots, saying with the number of amendments it would be more beneficial. Asked about changes he would implement, he said he would set up voter registration in neighborhoods, and he also said the he would get people excited to vote, and expand media relations. The Republican is Wesley Wilcox, currently the assistant in the elections office. Incumbent Dee Brown chose not to run again. He said that he has spent 22 years coordinating elections, and is an instructor in the state certification process for election workers. He said he would attempt to get out to more locations, and said he would increase social and electronic interactions. He emphasized that every vote counts, and spoke of a recent Belleview election that finished with a tie. Asked about voter fraud, Wilcox said the idea of showing ID is not a suppression issue. He agreed that voting by mail this year would be a help to speed things up at the polls on Election Day.
