REEDER Special to the CitizenActing students from Marion County Center for the Arts at West Port High School will perform in an improv show, Latt and Laughter, where audience members can enjoy food and beverage as they watch the performance. Janet Shelley, acting and musical theater instructor at West Port, said the comedy show is a favorite with our audiences. The performance will be presented at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 13 at West Port High Schools Performing Arts Center, located at 3733 S.W. 80th Avenue in Ocala. Instead of being seated in the house of the theater, audience members sit at tables on stage where they not only get to be close to the high school actors but are served beverages by the students as well. Because of this arrangement, seating is limited and people are encouraged to arrive early. Tickets are $7. Tickets may be purchased at www.westportwolfpack.org or at the door. Price includes admission, as well as a beverage and dessert. They love the experience of sitting up on stage with the performers in such an intimate atmosphere, Shelley said about the audience. There is some audience participation in the show as well, which makes them feel like a part of it. For more information, contact Janet Shelley or Laurie Reeder at 352-2914000. Latt and Laughter has to be one of the best entertainment bargains in Ocala, Shelley added. Where else can you get a great dessert, coffee or tea, and a show?

Fourth of a series of candidate appearances at a forum held at the library.BY JIM CLARK EditorSchool superintendent candidates took to the floor at a recent forum at the downtown library. Dr. Diana Greene, the Democratic candidate, spoke first. She emphasized her history in education in Marion County, from elementary school teacher to deputy superintendent. She noted that the district needs to reorganize to deal with the shrinking budget. She noted that the schools were receiving less money but were still expected to provide a quality education. She was asked about the fact that Marion County is the largest district in the state that still elects a superintendent and how she would create a good relationship with the School Board. It is a challenge, she said. There are six different people with six different agendas. She said she would meet monthly with each individual board member. Asked about teacher morale, she noted, Everything is not always about money. Teachers need to know theyre appreciated. George Tomyn is the Republican candidate, having won a three-way race in the primary. He also emphaSchool candidates discuss issues at local library forum Scrumptious! Delicious! Succulent! Mouth-Watering! These were some of the words that were used to describe the barbecued baby rack ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community during last springs Ribathon. On Saturday, Nov. 3, starting at 10 a.m., the tent at the Bank of the Ozarks on State Road 200 and Southwest 99th Street, will be back with the purpose of raising funds to allow the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest to support the College of Central Florida Nursing Scholarship Program and other local and international projects. A full rack of baby back ribs costs only $18 if you prepay and pick up your order before 12:30 p.m. The cost is $20 for racks that are not prepaid or that are picked up after 12:30. It is highly recommended to pre-order and to get there early if you dont preorder before the ribs are gone! Before cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. If you want to place your ribs in the freezer and eat them later, reheating directions are included. Pre-paid tickets are being sold by members of the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest. The Club meets on Tuesdays at 7:45 a.m. in suite 240 in the Doctors Office Building at the West Marion Community Hospital. You can also buy tickets at Senior Health Plus Inc. at On Top of the World Circle Square Commons Suite 17 and at several locations along State Route 200 including the Bank of the Ozarks, Alarion Bank, Coldwell Banker/Ellison Realty, the law office of W.E.

Rotary sale coming A 70-year-old Marion County resident is the first confirmed Florida death in the wake of the fungal meningitis outbreak currently under investigation nationwide. Officials would not release the persons name or area of residence. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of the victim, said Dr. Nathan Grossman, director of the Marion County Health Department. We are working hard to ensure that the people who may have been treated with the contaminated medicine are contacted and receive the treatment they need. The death occurred in mid-July, before the discovery of the contaminated lots of New England Compounding Center methylprednisolone acetate used for epidural back injections. Marion County Health Department staff discovered the link between the death of the 70-year-old resident and the contaminated steroid during the investigation of the fungal meningitis outbreak. The Health Department has discovered six fungal meningitis cases linked to the contaminated steroid in Marion County. In partnership with the Florida Pain Clinic, Marion Pain Management Center and the Surgery Center of Ocala, the Marion County Health Department is working to ensure that every patient who may have been injected with the contaminated steroid is contacted. Since the Health Department began its investigation on Oct. 1, more than 350 patients of the three clinics who may have been injected with the contaminated medicine have been contacted. Health Department staff members have made more than 35 visits to PLEASESEEVICTIM, PAGE26 WPHS acting students perform improv-comedy *See sales person for details.

Friday, October 12, 2012 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 2~ Friday, October 12, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Breathing new life into a well-known Civil War battleCAIN AT GETTYSBURG By Ralph Peters Readers may raise the questionwhy another book on the Battle of Gettysburg when 6,000 are still in print. The answer is that Ralph Peters is a consummate story teller and the subject remains a worthy one. Cain at Gettysburg differs from Michael Shaaras magnificent if somewhat romantic The Killer Angels in its grittiness and its you-are-there reality. A work of fiction but true to historical facts, it serves up the very soul of battle. The three-day blood fest in July 1863 outside the town of Gettysburg took a staggering toll of American lives. Casualties in the 26th North Carolina Infantry Regiment alone were higher than any other regiment on either side; 709 Confederate soldiers fell killed or wounded out of 8,000. What precisely happened during those tense, dramatic, lethal hours would become the ongoing subject of speculation, assertion and counter assertion for years. As a result of the battle, reputations would be made or destroyed. Most interesting is the light Peters shines on four principals General Robert E. Lee, General George G. Meade, General James Longstreet and General Daniel Sickles. Attempting to explain Lees ill-advised frontal attack on a well-positioned Union army across miles of open field, he creates a possible conversation when Longstreet tries to dissuade Lee from ordering the attack: Its my opinion that no fifteen thousand men ever arrayed for battle can take that position. This wouldnt be an attack, but a useless sacrifice. Lee responds, The enemy is there and I am going to strike him. In his research, Peters found that at that time Lee suffered from serous intestinal problems; he felt betrayed and hurt by Jeb Stuarts failure to appear with invaluable scouting information. Stuart had been like a son to Lee. Then Lee also found Meade an unworthy adversary and of course, he was somewhat blindsided by a sense of honor above all in attacking instead of waiting to be attacked. For his part Meade was stunned to find himself commander of the Union Army of the Potomac, a position he had not sought. Immediately, his peers became his subordinates in an uneasy relationship. Still, he persevered to victory but was ultimately maligned even so. One of his maligners was the despicable Sickles, a political general hoping battlefield success would propel him to the White House. But in disobeying orders at Gettysburg he allowed the Rebels to overrun his opposition. This superb narrative breathes new life into a well-known battle. BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington Several months ago the political ads started along with those bothersome telephone calls. We got a respite after the primary elections; but now theyre back the never-ending TV ads and the annoying telephone calls, most of which come at dinnertime. Makes you want to scream. Todays the day! Its the International Moment of Frustration Scream Day. Go ahead, scream! To help, Pun Alley has some screaming stories for you.Cant boot correctlyIn Vermont during the winter a teacher was helping one of her kindergarten students to put on his boots. He asked for help and she could see why. With her pulling and him pushing, the boots still didnt want to go on. When the second boot was on, she had worked up a sweat. She almost whimpered when the little boy said, Teacher, theyre on the wrong feet. She looked and sure enough, they were. It wasnt any easier pulling the boots off than it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the boots back on, this time on the right feet. He then announced, These arent my boots. She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream, Why didnt you say so? like she wanted to. Once again she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off. He then said, Theyre my brothers boots. My Mom made me wear them. She didnt know if she should laugh or cry. She mustered up the grace to wrestle the boots on his feet again. She said, Now, where are your mittens? He said, I stuffed them in the toes of my boots.Screaming liftAfter the passengers on a commercial airliner were seated, the pilot and copilot began walking up to the cockpit. Both appeared to be blind. The pilot was using a white cane, bumping into passengers, and the copilot had a guide dog. Both had their eyes covered with huge sunglasses. At first the passengers thought it was a practical joke. However, when the engines started and the airplane moved erratically towards the runway, the passengers had a lot of doubt. When the airplane accelerated rapidly people began panicking. As the plane got closer to the end of the runway, the voices became hysterical. Finally, when the airplane had less than 20 feet of runway left, everyone screamed at once, and at the very last moment the airplane lifted off and was airborne. Up in the cockpit, the copilot breathed a sigh of relief and turned to the pilot, You know, one of these days the passengers arent going to scream, and were gonna get killed!YellsI walked out of my house and was immediately hit in the head with a slice of ham. That was followed by a pound of ground beef, Let it out! Today is International Moment of Frustration Scream Day PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank PLEASESEEPUN, PAGE24 Amendment 5Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site):Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitution relating to the judiciary. The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for the practice and procedure in all courts. The constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. This proposed constitutional revision eliminates the requirement that a general law repealing a court rule pass by a twothirds vote of each house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general law approved by a majority vote of each house of the Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legislature determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the court from further readopting the repealed rule without the Legislatures prior approval. Under current law, rules of the judicial nominating commissions and the Judicial Qualifications Commission may be repealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. Under this proposed revision, a vote to repeal those rules is changed to repeal by general law enacted by a majority vote of the legislators present. Under current law, the Governor appoints a justice of the Supreme Court from a list of nominees provided by a judicial nominating commission, and appointments by the Governor are not subject to confirmation. This revision requires Senate confirmation of a justice of the Supreme Court before the appointee can take office. If the Senate votes not to confirm the appointment, the judicial nominating commission must reconvene and may not renominate any person whose prior appointment to fill the same vacancy was not confirmed by the Senate. For the purpose of confirmation, the Senate may meet at any time. If the Senate fails to vote on the appointment of a justice within 90 days, the justice will be deemed confirmed and will take office. The Judicial Qualifications Commission is an independent commission created by the State Constitution to investigate and prosecute before the Florida Supreme Court alleged misconduct by a justice or judge. Currently under the constitution, commission proceedings are confidential until formal charges are filed by the investigative panel of the commission. Once formal charges are filed, the formal charges and all further proceedings of the commission are public. Currently, the constitution authorizes the House of Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may request, and the Judicial Qualifications Commission must make available, all information in the commissions possession for use in deciding whether to impeach a justice or judge. This proposed revision requires the commission to make all of its files available to the Speaker of the House of Representatives but provides that such files would remain confidential during any investigation by the House of Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit of an impeachment of a justice or judge. This revision also removes the power of the Governor to request files of the Judicial Qualifications Commission to conform to a prior constitutional change. This revision also makes technical and clarifying additions and deletions relating to the selection of chief judges of a circuit and relating to the Judicial Qualifications Commission, and makes other nonsubstantive conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of the constitution.Arguments for:Supporters say the measure would make the appellate court system run more efficiently and add a layer of accountability before Supreme Court justices are appointed.Arguments against: Opponents say the measure is a dangerous attempt to exert political influence over the judicial branch by giving legislators more authority. Should the State Senate Confirm Florida Supreme Court Appointees?Amendment 5 is about the balance of power among the judicial, legislative and executive branches of government. One of the more meaningful provision is the one granting the state Senate confirmation power over appointees to the Florida Supreme Court. Currently, the governor fills openings on the court by appointing a nominee from a list presented by a judicial nominating commission. If passed, this amendment would allow the Senate to reject or approve nominees. It would also give members of the state House of Representatives access to confidential files involving judges accused of misconduct, and would give lawmakers the right to repeal procedural court rules with a simple majority vote rather than a two-thirds majority vote, as currently required. Supporters say it would bring change to a court system that gives the governor too much power in appointing judges. Opponents say it would politicize the process and shift the balance of power by giving the Legislature too much influence over the judiciary. The measure passed the Legislature largely along party lines, with Republicans in favor and Democrats against. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If passed, it becomes effective on Jan. 8, 2013.HistoryOver its first 40 years after becoming a state in 1845, Florida changed the way it decides who sits on the Supreme Court a half-dozen times, from Legislative appointment, to popular elections, to gubernatorial appointment with Senate oversight, and then back to popular elections. Starting in 1972, Florida ended the popular election of justices and changed to a merit selection system. That process begins when a vacancy opens on the court and a Judicial Nominating Commission compiles a list of three to six nominees to present to the governor. The governor selects an appointee from that list who is then seated on the court. After being appointed, justices serve six-year terms and face voters in a yes or no retention vote at the end of each term to decide whether they remain in office, based on the merit of their service.How Florida ComparesAbout a dozen states use a gubernatorial appointment system similar to the one Florida currently uses to select Supreme Court justices, according to the National Center for State Courts. Another dozen states have some sort of state Senate or other legislative confirmation process like that being proposed in Amendment 5. The remaining states let the public choose their Supreme Court justices, mostly through non-partisan elections. Title on ballot: State Courts Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This measure would provide for Senate confirmation of Supreme Court justices; give lawmakers control over changes to the rules governing the court system; and direct the Judicial Qualifications Commission, which investigates judicial misconduct complaints, to make its files available to the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives. If you vote yes: A yes vote means you want the Senate to have confirmation power over Supreme Court appointees, and some authority over changes to the rules that govern the states courts. You also want to grant the House access to Judicial Qualifications Commissions investigative files on judges. If you vote no: A no vote means you do not want these proposed changes made to the states judiciary. Amendment 6Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site):This proposed amendment provides that public funds may not be expended for any abortion or for health-benefits coverage that includes coverage of abortion. This prohibition does not apply to an expenditure required by federal law, a case in which a woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or physical illness that would place her in danger of death unless an abortion is performed, or a case of rape or incest. This proposed amendment provides that the State Constitution may not be interpreted to create broader rights to an abortion than those contained in the United States Constitution. With respect to abortion, this proposed amendment overrules court decisions which conclude that the right of privacy under Article I, Section 23 of the State Constitution is broader in scope than that of the United States Constitution.Arguments for: Supporters say this makes it clear Florida prohibits public funding for abortions and gives the public a voice in deciding state abortion law.Arguments against: Opponents say this amendment discriminates against women, strips away a womans fundamental right to choose, and erodes established law, including rights of privacy.Should federal abortion laws be enshrined in the state constitution? And should the states constitutional right to privacy be modified? Amendment 6 raises two questions related to abortion rights in Florida. The first whether the state constitution should reflect the existing federal prohibitions on the public funding of abortions would not change current abortion funding practices in Florida. The second whether to modify a provision in the state constitution that guarantees a right to privacy for every Floridian would affect abortion law in the state. As to the impact on state law, the first question matters less than the second. For several decades, federal law has prohibited the expenditure of federal funds for most abortions (exceptions include rape, incest and medical conditions that threaten the mothers life). Amendment 6 would not expand those prohibitions. If passed, it would simply duplicate the existing federal prohibitions. The second question is more consequential. In 1980, Florida voters passed a constitutional amendment that says, in part: Every natural person has the right to be let alone and free from governmental intrusion into the persons private life This privacy right is often used to challenge abortion measures passed by Florida lawmakers. Over the years, courts have cited the clause when blocking parental-notification laws involving pregnant minors and laws requiring doctors to counsel women about alternatives to abortion. The law was pivotal in a landmark case in 1989 that prevented Gov. Jeb Bush from stopping a pregnant 13-yearold in state custody from choosing to have an abortion. In short, passage of Amendment 6 would mean parental-notification laws or other types of procedural abortion legislation passed by state lawmakers would no longer be subject to challenge under the states privacy law. Supporters say this amendment puts the state on even footing with the federal government and allows the electorate to express its opinion on abortion law. Its a broad enough value issue that we should let the public speak, state Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, a sponsor of the amendment, told the Ocala Star-Banner. I think its far-reaching and its controversial, but we as a state will address the sanctity of life, which is a foundational issue. Opponents say it is a pre-emptive strike on a womans right to choose. This amendment would roll back womens rights as protected under the Florida Constitution. We would be reversing that express right to privacy, Stephanie Kunkel, the former executive director of Planned Parenthood of Florida, told the Ocala Star-Banner. The Florida House approved the measure by a 79-34 vote. The Florida Senate voted 27-12 to approve the measure. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved, the bill will go into effect on Jan. 8, 2013.HistoryBy 1965, abortions were deemed illegal in all 50 states. As a result, many women began to utilize illegal underground abortion services. In 1973, the landmark United States Supreme Court decision, Roe V. Wade, reformed abortion law. The Court recognized that a woman has a constitutionally protected right to terminate pregnancy until her fetus is viable, which the law says is at about 24 weeks gestation. Abortions beyond that legally defined viability period can occur to protect the mothers life. In 2007, a total of 91,954 abortions were performed in Florida, according to a state analysis of the bill that became Amendment 6. For 83,890 of those, the gestational age of the fetus was 12 weeks and under; for 8,063, the gestational age of the fetus was 13 to 24 weeks; and for one, the gestational age was over 25 weeks.The Hyde Amendment In 1976, three years after Roe v. Wade, a federal legislative provision called the Hyde Amendment passed, which prohibited the use of public money for abortions except in cases of rape, incest and for preserving the life of the mother. The Hyde Amendment, introduced by Rep. Henry J. Hyde, R-Ill, prevents Medicaid and any other programs under the Department of Health and Human Services to fund abortions. Based on the Hyde Amendment, Medicaid reimburses for abortions if: The woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or physical illness, including a life-endangering physical condition caused or arising from the pregnancy itself that would place the woman in danger of death unless an abortion is performed. When the pregnancy is the result of rape (sexual battery). When the pregnancy is the result of incest.State Privacy LawIn the 1970s, a newspaper reporter seeking to obtain the records of a private consulting firms search for a managing director of a public utility invoked the states public records law. Not wanting to make the documents public, the consulting firm argued that the states constitution protected individuals from government intrusion, according to a review of the states privacy law in the book, Constitutional Politics in the States. The case eventually ended up before the Florida Supreme Court, and in January 1980 the court said it found no language in the state constitution guaranteeing a right to privacy. Soon after, a bipartisan group of lawmakers introduced a resolution to establish a constitutional right to privacy. Their intent was to limit government intrusion into the private lives of individuals. Title on Ballot: Prohibition on Public Funding of Abortions; Construction of Abortion Rights Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would make the existing federal ban on public funding for most abortions part of the state constitution. It would narrow the scope of a state privacy law that is sometimes used in Florida to challenge abortion laws. If you vote yes: A yes vote means you support putting the existing federal ban on the use of public funds for abortions into the state constitution; and you support eliminating the states privacy right with respect to a womans right to choose. IF you vote no: A no vote means you are against placing the existing federal ban on using public funds for abortions into the state constitution; and you are against eliminating the states privacy right with respect to a womans right to choose. www.nutechhearing.com M-F 9:00 to 4:00 p.m. Sat. and Sun.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advised that any patients known or suspected to have received back or joint injections with the suspect lots of New England Compounding Center methylprednisolone acetate since May 21, may be at risk for infection. If they show symptoms, these patients should be evaluated immediately by their health care professional and monitored or treated as necessary. Patients without symptoms should be evaluated by their health care professionals. Although fungal meningitis that is caused by the contaminated medicine cannot be transmitted from person to person, more cases could come to light. Infected patients have presented with symptoms as long as four weeks following their injection with the contaminated medicine. Symptoms may include fever, new or worsening headache, nausea, or new symptoms consistent with a stroke, such as weakness on one side of the body and slurred speech. Some of these patients symptoms were very mild in nature. If individuals are experiencing any of these and have had an injection at the Florida Pain Clinic, Marion Pain Management Center or the Surgery Center of Ocala since May 21, they should contact their health care provider. On Sept. 21, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was notified by the Tennessee Department of Health of a patient with the onset of meningitis approximately 19 days following epidural steroid injection at a Tennessee ambulatory surgical center. All initial cultures of cerebrospinal fluid and blood were negative; subsequently the patient had Aspergillus fumigatus isolated from the fluid by fungal culture. On Sept. 28, investigators identified a case outside of Tennessee, possibly indicating contamination of a widely-distributed medication.

We can take our recyclables to our recycle center here in Oak Run off the service road. These recyclables are picked up by Trade Mark Recycle Inc. We still must separate newspapers, tearable papers, phone books and aluminum cans. Trade Mark weighs each of these separate items and pays ORHA a per pound rate. ORHA receives from $200-300 per month. No plastic bottles, glass, cardboard or metal cans are accepted. If you wish to recycle these materials you must use a Marion County convenience centers like the one at the Highlands off County Road 484. They take mixtures of acceptable recyclables as you have been reading, but garbage must still put into a separate bin The mixed recyclables are made up of what was formerly placed in separate bins but is now deposited in one bin. These items are still only newspapers, tearable papers, card board, phone books, aluminum cans, metal cans (food, pet food, coffee, etc) and glass of all colors. These are transported to a facility where they go through various sorting steps which use magnets, screens and humans to separate these items. They do not accept plastic bags or shredded paper, both of which clog up the sorting mechanism. These items must be put in with the garbage. No garbage, which is primarily organic food stuffs and certain containers that are covered by wax or paraffin (like milk containers, etc), is to be put with the recyclables I hope this explanation has been helpful to you. Remember that nothing has changed in Oak Run. The only way you can recycle in Oak Run is to use the ORHA sponsored recycle bins on the service road, and material must be separated as it always has. If you wish to recycle with acceptable recyclables mixed together, you must go to a Marion County recycling facility, and non recyclables must be disposed of separately. OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 then a couple pieces of bacon. I called 911 and reported what happened. They said, Of course, were having meatier showers. Life is like a doughnut; youre either in the dough or in the hole. As I stood in line screaming in terror while the cashier handed me two quarters, one dime and a nickel, I was hit with the sad realization that I was afraid of change. He is as broke and as frustrated as a pickpocket in a nudist colony. A gent from Glasgow exclaimed in frustration: I just washed my kilt, and I cant do a fling with it.Worthy causeA driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway when a man knocked on his window. The driver asked, Whats going on? Terrorists kidnapped Congress and are asking for a $100 million dollar ransom. Otherwise, they are going to douse them all in gasoline and set them on fire. We are going from car to car, taking up a collection. How much is everyone giving, on average? the driver asked. The man replied, About a gallon. Keep calmIn the supermarket, a woman was pushing a cart that contained a screaming, bellowing baby. The lady kept repeating softly, Dont get excited, Sally. Dont scream, Sally. Dont yell, Sally. Keep calm, Sally. A man standing next to her said, You certainly are to be commended for trying to soothe your daughter Sally. The lady looked at him and said, Sir, Im Sally.

But appearances can be deceptive. Get the facts before going forth into the fray. TA URU S ( April 20 to May 20) Bullying others into agreeing with your position could cause resentment. Instead, persuade them to join you by making your case on a logical pointby-point basis. GEM INI ( May 21 to June 20) Resist pushing for a workplace decision you might feel is long overdue. Your impatience could backfire. Meanwhile, focus on that still-unsettled personal situation. CA NCE R ( June 21 to July 22) Your aspects favor doing something different. You might decide to redecorate your home, or take a trip somewhere youve never been, or even change your hairstyle. LEO ( July 23 to Aug. 22) You might want to take a break from your busy schedule to restore your energy levels. Use this lesshectic time to also reassess your plans and make needed changes. VIRG O ( Aug 23 to Sept. 22) What you like to think of as determination might be seen by others as nothing more than stubbornness. Try to be more flexible if you hope to get things resolved. LIBRA ( Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Watch that you dont unwittingly reveal work-related information to the wrong person. Best to say nothing until you get official clearance to open up. SCORPI O ( Oct. 23 to N ov 21) With things settling down at work or at home, you can now take on a new challenge without fear of distraction. Be open to helpful suggestions from colleagues. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to D ec. 21) Your creativity can help resolve an emotional situation that might otherwise get out of hand. Continue to be your usual caring, sensitive self. CAPRI CORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You could impress a lot of influential people with the way you untangle a few knotty problems. Meanwhile, a colleague is set to share some welcome news. A QUARIUS ( Jan. 20 to Feb 18) Aspects favor recharging your social life and meeting new people. Its also a good time to renew friendships that might be stagnating due to neglect on both sides. PI SCE S ( Feb 19 to March 20) Congratulations. Your talent for working out a highly technical problem earns you well-deserved praise. The weekend could bring news about a friend or relative.

Perhaps you already belong to an animal related club or organization in your community. It would be a great help to both our groups if at least one member could come to our meetings and act as a liaison between our organizations. This would help us exchange information regarding animal welfare, open up fostering opportunities for animals in need, and better serve the animals of Marion and surrounding counties. But you dont need to belong to another animal welfare group to join the SPCA. If youve always had a love of animals and want to channel that commitment into volunteering for a worthy cause, weve made it easier to do just that. Weve moved our meeting room to the Bank of the Ozarks in Friendship Center by Winn Dixie on State Road 200 so that is convenient for anyone to get to. We still meet on the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 1 p.m. For this month, the meeting date is Thursday, Oct. 18. While it is advantageous to come to our meetings, we know that you may have scheduling conflicts that make it impossible to attend. That does not have to preclude you from joining our organization. We have volunteering opportunities at different times of the day and week that you can fit in when you can. So please call us at 352-362-0985 if you would like to join or hear more about our activities even though you cant attend the meetings. Adoption NewsWe have important news for all cat lovers, especially those looking to adopt. We need to place two adult cats and three kittens pronto, because their foster caregiver will be relocating and cannot take them. The cats shown here, Kitten, a 5-year old tortoise female and Pumpkin, a 9year old black female, have been in foster care for a year waiting for their chance at a forever home. During this time they have been well loved, cared for, and socialized so that they will be great companions when they get to your home. Kitten and Pumpkin have been waiting so long if youve been thinking about getting an adult cat, please give Arlene a call at 352-875-9761 to check them out before proceeding any further. For those of you who are partial to kittens, she has two males and one female black and white: Coco, Cody and Panda. Pretty Panda is pictured here. Shes only 9 months old and ready to show you all the cute things shes learned in foster care. Coco and Cody are six months old and well show you their picture next month if theyre still available. A person from a local community needs your help. Due to an illness, she can no longer care for her cats. At 14 years old, theyre too old to be placed in a cage in a shelter even though theyre in great health, so they need to go to a new home. The male is Wilbur, a 13-pound long hair, and the female is Wilma, a little bitty 8pound short hair. Both are loving and affectionate. We can put their picture in next month if theyre still available. If you can help out a neighbor, please call Sharyn at 305-229-3708 to meet these cuties. We have a dog of the month from Animal Services named Nixon to tell you about. An unimpeachable source tells us that this little cutie could make someone from very happy. Hes one of those tiny guys at 6.8 pounds where every ounce really counts. Since hes already 3 years old, he wont get much bigger, but perhaps a few choice treats can have him tip the scales at 7 robust pounds in no time. We think you can tell that he has the adorable face of a terrier mix and a personality to match. He loves to snuggle and give kisses and who doesnt like that? To make things easier, he knows how to walk on a leash and gets along well with other animals. So he can be an only or a dog or cat brother how versatile. Before hes scooped up, please call Animal services at 352-6718700 and reference ID A082197. Or you can visit the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St., off Baseline Road. Adoption costs $40 which includes the spay/neuter fee, county licenses, vaccinations and microchip.Feisty Acres needs volunteersFeisty Acres, a dedicated cat and kitten sanctuary just north of here in Williston, is in desperate need of volunteers and donations. They especially need volunteers for hands on work around the facility. If you love cat rescue, and want to offer your services, please call Cheryl at 352804-4421 for more details. For much needed donations, their mailing address is Feisty Acres, P .O. Box 693, Williston FL 32696. All the cat rescue groups are filled to the brim with cats and can barely take any more in. It takes time for the countys relatively new Trap Neuter Release program to work its magic. Its also up to cat and kitten owners to responsibly spay/neuter your pet early so that they dont add to the overpopulation and put a further strain on these groups who work so hard with few resources. Veterinary newsWe have news about a new vet clinic that recently opened its doors nearby. A Family Veterinarian, at 7466 S.W. 60th Ave. in Jasmine Plaza off State Road 200, is a full service vet practice that treats dogs, cats, avians and exotics. The clinic is lead by Dr. Ed, formerly of the Banfield Pet Hospital in PetSmart, where some of you may know him from. What makes this practice different is that they are open on Saturdays and Sundays. However, they are closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You can call them at 352-671-9550 for an appointment or to check out the facility to see if it fits your needs. We want to remind everyone that a new afterhours veterinary emergency clinic opened up near the Paddock Mall. The clinic is called the University of Florida Pet Emergency Treatment Services at 3200 S.W. 27th Ave. The clinic has a green roof and a small sign on the side of the building. It is located between Palm Gardens and Qwick Check/The Vines Hospital. Anyone with a pet should take a dry run during the day to check it out so you dont get lost if you need their services in the middle of the night. The emergency clinic is open when most vets not: 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. Monday through Friday and 24 hour weekend and holiday service. The phone number is 352-512-0886 and the website is pets.vethospitals.ufl.edu Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

October SpeakerDiabetes management is the subject our speaker will discuss on Tuesday, Oct. 16, after the social. Diabetes management requires awareness, and knowing what makes your blood sugar level rise and falland how to control these day-to-day factors is an important part of a diabetes management plan. In her presentation, Sharon Jones, RN, and director of nursing at Angels Care Home Health, will discuss the disease process, patient self-care management, the importance of medications, activity and dietary management. If you would like to learn more about this important topic, please plan on staying after the Tuesday Social on Oct. 16.Variety show a hitThe Sunshine Committee did it again and sponsored another great fundraiser. The Lifestyle Center was a tropical paradise on Saturday night, Sept. 22, with a terrific dinner and wonderful entertainment by community members which delighted a sold out crowd. The careful planning and attention to detail by Chairperson Janice Wood, assisted by Co-chair Lois Norris, the decorations by Leta Simmons and Merry Anne Krell, and a meal with carving station catered by My Sons Catering ensured the evening went off without a hitch. Gordon Herrick was the M.C. of the evening, and Nancy Scott led the invocation. The entertainment lineup couldnt be beat. Songs, some serious and some not, were performed by Rich and Gail Sanborn, Charlie Mock, Jerry Rae King with Randy VanZalkenburgh and accompanied by Ardith Thomas, who also sang with Jackie Santone, Mary Ann Hall, Gloria Wilberg accompanied by Marta Bruenn, George Taragna, Sharon Talbert accompanied by John Kalivoda; a poem by Joan Ritter with her animals; and a medley by the Kitchen Kookies Band, whose members are Joan Dopler, leader; Nadine Perry, keyboard; Mary Jo Eggers, Merry Anne Krell, Barbara Litchert, John Metzger, Noreen Metzger, Martha Nierenberg, Shirley Pohlers, Bob Schmidt, Donna Schmidt, Shirley Seckman, Jan Sekurski and Kaz Sekurski. As with any event here in Marion Landing, it couldnt have been done without the help of many dedicated volunteers, and wed like to thank them for their efforts: sound, Art Dopler; videotaping, John Metzger; programs, Gloria Wilberg; and lattice construction, Bill Jackson.

Friday, October 12, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 12, 2012 The Marion County sheriffs election is so far up in the air that its practically out of sight. Heres a summary as we see it: Candidate Dan Kuhn, who has been running for the office pretty much since Sheriff Ed Dean announced he would not seek reelection, withdrew from the race last week. Kuhn had apparently had an affair with a principal at the school where his wife teaches, and that principal decided that six weeks before the election would be a good time to make things public. That, of course, has led to a dialog among conspiracy theorists about the timing. Kuhn won the primary over Chris Blair, a former deputy and detective, and was scheduled to face Constitution Party representative Bernie DeCastro in the general election.. People were talking about writing in the name of Blair, now that Kuhn has withdrawn, but a recent story said that since he lost the primary, he couldnt be a write-in candidate. However, the Republican Party was to meet this week to pick someone to run in Kuhns place, and one of the leading names was Blair. So apparently its OK for him to run again that way, but not be written in. That seems a little strange. He should either be entitled to run again, or not. What if Blair runs again, and loses? He could become one of the first to ever lose twice in the same election. One of the criteria for a new candidate has been listed as the fact that he must be a Republican. Thats too bad. One of the best solutions would be to go to Dean and ask him to run again. Now we have another name thrown in, that of former sheriff Don Moreland. If he can straighten out this mess, more power to him. Another problem is that the ballots have already been printed. So whoever is chosen by the Republicans will not be on the ballot, but a vote for Dan Kuhn will be considered a vote for the new candidate. And what of those who still wish to vote for Kuhn? Since now their vote for Kuhn will be counted as a vote for the new candidate, can they write in Kuhns name? In that case, Kuhn will be running against himself. That could make for a fun night of counting at the elections office. How about those who have already submitted a ballot by mail, and thought they were voting for Dan Kuhn? Isnt that tantamount to election fraud, telling people who voted for Kuhn that their vote will be counted for someone else? And lets face it, there will be some who wont get the word that theres a new candidate, and their vote may go to someone they never heard of. Although Im on record as opposing early voting, I have endorsed it this year because of the ballot complicated by 11 amendments. Now Im rethinking that. At least I want to make sure who Im voting for. This year, in Marion County, that may not be easy to determine.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Today we take a look at two additional amendments that will be on the ballot on Nov. 6. Amendment 5 is titled simply, State courts. Thats a little misleading. Its a power grab by the Legislature to take more control over the Supreme Court. We are supposed to have three separate branches of government, judicial, legislative and executive. They are supposed to act independently. Evidently some legislators dont like that. They want to run everything in state government, so the Legislature put this on the ballot. Simply, it deserves a no vote. Then theres Amendment 6, sure to stir passions in a lot of people. The title is Prohibition of public funding of abortions; construction of abortion rights. The description provided to us says, Prohibits public fund expenditures for any abortion or for any health benefits coverage that includes coverage for abortion, but does not apply when the expenditure is required by federal law or where womans life is in danger or in case of rape or incest. Prohibits the use of Floridas express existing constitutional privacy clause by the courts in defending abortion rights. Even pro-life backers would have to concede that this is a toothless amendment. Its more or less a send a message amendment that will have no practical application, especially since almost all abortion rights cases are ultimately decided in federal courts. The big thing to us is that it would not allow challenges to partental notification laws. Sounds good, but sure to bring a costly court fight. It would be much more beneficial to pro-life forces to unite at the ballot box and make sure they are electing officials who feel the same way they do. Then they might have a chance of overturning federal decisions that go against the pro-life movement. So if you want to send a message, vote yes, as long as you dont complain later that the fight has become too costly. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Courts and abortion on the ballot Sheriffs election mess questions Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Government does not create jobs or wealth Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED The seemingly endless 2012 presidential campaigns have been as interesting as watching chefs tenderizing meat with serrated mallets. Issues have been pulverized into BS (baloney stuffing). Some voters have undoubtedly gone numb. Others may hope voting early will make the campaign noise go away. The term permanent campaign was coined by pollster Pat Caddell, who advised Jimmy Carter to begin his presidency by becoming a full-time, every-day salesman for re-election, including weekends, holidays, and vacations. Mr. Carter wasnt much of a salesman. He won the presidency with a humble one-sentence campaign: Hi. Im Jimmy Carter, and Im running for President. President Obama has been running for re-election since the moment he sat down in the oval office, picked up the phone and scheduled several months of trips across the country and around the world. Campaigning is what our Cheerleader in Chief does best. Identities have been the focus of the Republican side of the current campaign for the White House. Twelve aspirants appeared and disappeared during the primaries parade. They were mutually and embarrassingly destructive during their on stage quiz shows. The buffoonery of the Republican nomination process suggests holding the 2016 candidate selection in a soundproof, camera-free, smoke-filled back room. Before Republican advisers had determined which persona their widely accomplished nominee should emphasize, the Obama campaign had already decided to portray Mitt Romney as a greedy captive of big business. His accomplishments as governor of Massachusetts and as the successful turn-around manager of the failing 2002 Olympics have been denigrated as irrelevant to leading the nation. In return Republicans have depicted Mr. Obama as a standard model, tax and spend, big-government Democrat, whose primary interest is enlargement of the welfare state, and more White House control of national and state priorities. Despite occasional glimpses, neither presidential candidate has been specific enough to give voters a clear picture of what theyll be buying when they mark their ballots. Many voters will leave the polls wondering whether they made the right decision for the nation and their families. Recent presidents and congresses have forgotten conveniently where government money comes from. Perhaps they dont give a damn. Two consecutive administrations have played the credit card game, borrowing recklessly for their own political purposes, while reassuring the voters that deficits dont matter. The mutton heads who ran Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Italy into financial chaos still believe they can put their financial train back on track by borrowing and spending more money. The future of our nation depends on a robust recovery of our economy. Since the end of the great depression (1929-1941) our economy has been the source of our domestic prosperity and global prominence. National defense, national debt, entitlements, pensions, the banking system, the value of money and most other important concerns are dependent on one reliable source of wealth creation. Its the economy .. Palm Cay challengeThe Palm Cay community is having a food drive on Saturday, Nov. 3, to help fill the pantries at Interfaith Emergency Services. We would like to challenge other communities in this area not only to participate on their own but also to try to exceed the Palm Cay donation. This is an excellent opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many people here in Marion County. I hope that you will join us in this effort. Russ Hoyt Palm CayTwisting the truthI want to think that the vast majority of us do not fall for the medias twist and Obama TV ads that state Romney was talking about working people and/or retirees as part of the 47 percent who will not vote for him under any circumstances. If you do, we are in trouble for you are believing a lie, so listen carefully and accept the truth! He was honestly talking about the takers, who live off others tax money, and how they would not vote for him even if he could walk on water. This does not include those of us on Social Security or other programs where we paid into the program or received benefits as part of our compensation. He was not talking about working people who take individual responsibility for themselves and their families. Whether we want to accept it or not, we have allowed a large segment of society, easily over 40 percent, to work the system so they can live as well or better than the average middle class worker. Do some math homework, add welfare payments, free child care, section 8 housing allowance, free medical care, and food stamps to the numerous other giveaway programs we currently have in place. How can Romney or any candidate that promises to cut back on such programs, win their vote? The facts are that 99 percent of these takers will vote for Democrats. Who do you want to identify with? I also cant believe the number of retirees who believe Obama care is good for us. Consider the following: Medicare premiums will more than double by 2014, over $7 billion is to be cut from Medicare, at least 20 percent of PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 LANDINGCONTINUED FROM PAGE 19 Above, Marion Landing Variety Show cast finale.

There were 44 participants split into two teams, the USA and the Europeans. The first day was better ball of two team members from each side, match play. At the end of the day the USA led by a score of 7 to 4. On the second day the game was alternate shot, and again the USA prevailed by a score of 7 1/2 to 3 1/2. Thus, going into the singles matches on Friday the USA had a dominant lead of 14 1/2 to 7 1/2. Sound familiar to the real Ryder Cup? Friday saw the Europeans come out firing, winning 7 out of the first 8 matches. However, the USA rallied enough to make the final score for the day a win for the Europeans by 13 to 9. The overall score for the three days ended with a victory for the USA by a score of 23 1/2 to 20 1/2. All agreed it was an excellent tourney, and thanks go to Virgil Hein and Bill Ellin for setting up the teams and running the games. As usual the members enjoyed a fine lunch provided by the Royal Oaks Dining while the final results were tabulated. Already were looking forward to the next tournament, now that the fall season has arrived and the weather is somewhat cooler.Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn Oct. 3. we played low putts.

I certainly have. So I did what I usually do when I have questions about recycling, I contacted Jim Waddell. He told me Steve Routte, our ORHA president, is the current recycle coordinator. However, Jim sent me a great explanation that has clarified things for me. I hope it will help you too. The most important thing to remember is that the Marion County program you have been reading about does not apply to Oak Run! Nothing here has changed because ourFriday, October 12, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 12, 2012 www.smcitizen.com doctors have stated they will either cut back or stop taking Medicare patients (check with your own doctor), there will be a board, appointed by the president, that will have more power over our future health care than Obama admitted in the debate (check it out yourself), there are numerous hidden taxes that will hurt all of us, not just the very wealthy. Obama care must be repealed! Economically, where is the uproar over the $16 trillion debt we are passing down to our children? If Obama is re-elected the debt will probably reach $20 trillion and our country will face bankruptcy, destroying America as we know it. How can we even consider doing this to our children and grandchildren? Never in our history has a president been reelected with such a dismal four-year record. Never has there been a time when we face having two such different visions for Americas future. If you love America, and believe we are the greatest country in the world, if you believe in God, our creator, and you want his blessings to continue, there is no way you can vote for a present day Democrat. Think before you vote! Wayne Rackley OcalaAre we at war?Being a retiree I have been around the block a few times and have seen American administrations react differently during times of war. Our policies have always been to support our president no matter how we feel individually. We are a nation of laws served down by our constitution and supported by our government with the backing of our military. It seems that recently a number of politicians have been speaking against our government during this period of time while we are at war. For those of you who feel that we are not at war I ask you to read the newspapers or watch the news on TV, other than the Fox news station to get the truth. There are members of congress campaigning for re-election who speak against our president with hatred in their voices and with actions against our country. Governor Romney is campaigning against President Obama and speaking against every action we are taking in the Mideast where citizens of these countries are attacking American interests on a daily basis. If the Mideast is not at war with us, then who is attacking our embassies and killing our government officials. Maybe I am old fashioned but I feel strongly that you should not speak against or criticize our president during a time of war. Jerry Segovis OcalaOne Nation Under GodOne Nation Under God? You have got to be kidding! Which God? The God that I believe in is not the god of this world. The God that I believe in is not a god of hate but a god of love. He is God who wrote the Bible. And yes, if men had written the Bible they wouldnt have exposed the sings of their heroes like Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, David, Peter and others. People of all ages and generations are to learn from the mistakes of those Bible characters. God hates sin but loves sinners or none of us would have any hope. And the reason we have hope is because the only perfect human being that ever lived and was able to please God by dying for all sin was Jesus Christ. His life was to be an example for all of us. Because he was God in the flesh, he knew how to treat people; he could separate sin from the sinner. He loved prostitutes but hated their sin (John 4); he could forgive murdering thieves (Luke 23), like politicians and abortionists. God can even forgive homosexuals and change their heart and thinking if they will ask for his forgiveness (Romans 2, 1 John 1). All of us need to realize that having attitudes that reflect hatred toward other people rather than hatred of their sinful practices is not going to attract the unbelievers to the God of the Bible and the one and only God our forefathers worshiped when they founded America. God can bless the USWA if we return to him and value life and morality more than economics. Rev. T. William Fortune Marion OaksSomething is wrongPresident Obama says his proposed agenda will work if the rich are taxed more and the middle class is strengthened. Lets see, the top 5 percent of income earners already pay 60 percent of the nations income taxes. But Obama proposes to tax them even more. He also plans too strengthen the middle class ... you know, the middle class hes been weakening for the past four years. Okay, his tax the rich scheme would generate an additional $65 billion in 2013. But, hell spend $4 billion a day (hes already spending $3.5 billion a day ... the highest ever). The additional $65 billion in tax revenues will last about 16 days. Hmmmm! Now one would hope that a portion of the increased tax would be used to reduce our debt which is over $16 trillion. Nope! Instead, Obamas excessive spending would increase the debt to $17.5 trillion in 2013. So, wheres the money to LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 fund Obamas proposed agenda coming from? Well, he can continue borrowing money ... even though our debt is already $16 trillion, and growing ... until America eventually defaults. How about drastically reducing spending? No, then the people receiving the government entitlements they arent entitled to wouldnt receive those entitlements. That would be contrary to Obamas agenda. He hasnt proposed increasing taxes on the middle class yet! Wait! Now theres a possibility ... but what about that strengthening thing? Well, Im totally confused ... as probably are most citizens. Its quite obvious that something is drastically wrong with Obamas proposed agenda. Joe OHara OcalaRemember in NovemberThis November when Americans vote for the future president of the United States, it is important that the citizens consider the best person for doing what is best for this country. They must keep that in mind and not blind Party loyalty, ideological zealotry, or just purely personal interest. The country needs an informed electorate that votes on substance and not style.

Fred Pulis Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 My father was not what you would call a literate person. Apart from the Bible, he did not read much of anything else on a regular basis. I can remember as a young person him quoting a great American patriot, Benjamin Franklin. The only quote he knew of this man was, Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. For a long time I thought he was making it up and then one day, I happened to run across a book in the library about Benjamin Franklin and, there it was. Benjamin actually did say that. I had to give my father that one. It seems that every time it got close to what my father termed as my bedtime, he would remind me of this famous quote. It got so I hated when bedtime came. At the time, I had my doubts about the validity of this quote because if my father followed this quote as he encouraged me to do, why was he not healthy, wealthy and wise? At the time, I was in no position to question his wisdom. I was wise enough to know that the best part of wisdom was not to challenge the wisdom of my father. This has attributed to my length of life to date. Incidentally, I have carried this over into my married life. According to my father, if I simply obeyed Franklins advice I would have a life filled with health, wealth and wisdom. The three things absolutely needed in life to make a person happy. Or, so Franklin would lead us to believe. After what seems to be a lifetime of living, and living in as much harmony of these two aspects of life, I must say that there is very little truth to be said concerning good old Franklins saying. No matter how early I go Early to bed and early to rise hasnt really worked for me to bed or how early I get up, I do not seem to be any wealthier or healthier. Perhaps, and this is only a guess on my part because I am not as wise as old Benjamin Franklin, you had to do something when you got up that contributed or created your wealth. Just a suggestion from me. That is the way it is with most sayings. They sound good; you sound wise in quoting them; but after every saying is quoted, nothing seems to change. They just do not cover the whole spectrum. It is not that I have not given it the good old college try; it just does not work for me. This past week I had an occasion to think about this quote. I have tried keeping the early to bed and early to rise objective in full focus throughout my life. I am not up partying until the wee hours of the morning. At my age, my party time is early afternoon. I have made a concerted effort to get enough rest and just to make sure I have enough rest I indulge in an afternoon nap. I am not sure where this comes in Benjamin Franklins quote. Recently, I had cause to reflect upon the validity of Benjamin Franklins sage advice. My quarterly taxes were due, and you know what good old Uncle Sam thinks about being late on his payments. If confession is good for the soul (another famous quote), I need to confess that while I was writing this check to Uncle Sam I had some rather harsh thoughts about him in the process. There, I said it. During the same week, some other bills were due and none of them would take no for an answer. Again, I must confess, while writing these checks I was sputtering to myself quite a bit. As I looked at my checkbook, I knew that the wealthy component of Benjamin Franklins quote did not come in my direction. I was simply out of wealth. Not only that, but I recently spent about four weeks sick with bronchitis and pneumonia and spent about three weeks in bed. Not only was I early to bed, but I was glued to my bed. How does that fit into Franklins saying? The healthy aspect of that quote has not fallen in my direction either. If you want to know about the wise element, simply query the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Another old phrase says, three strikes and youre out. Well, according to the Franklin saying, I must concede that I am out. I am not wealthy, in many regards Im not healthy and for sure, Im not wise. It is my opinion that there is a lot more to life than wise old sayings from some old man from the past. Benjamin Franklin, for example, no doubt practiced early to bed and early to rise but in the end, he died. That does not sound too healthy to me. Of course, the best place for wisdom is the Bible. I like what the wisest man in the world said, Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths (Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV). I am not too sure about the healthy and the wealthy components, that is up for grabs, but I am convinced the wise part comes from the Lord. After all, the Bible teaches us that God is Omniscient. If God knows everything and I know God, I am in a good position.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

and his education at that point. After graduating from Woodstock Ken went on to Wentworth Institute in Boston Massachusetts where he completed his degree program in Building Construction. That was in 1943 during the Second World War. Naturally, after completing his education Uncle Sam called and he was drafted into the U.S. Army. Following extensive training, Ken was assigned to an anti-aircraft company. These men rode in half tracks that sported a variety of weapons designed to shoot down enemy aircraft. Because they were very mobile, they were utilized to protect field artillery positions; headquarters; and the flanks of fast moving tank and infantry units. Under the cover of darkness, just three weeks after DDay and with German aircraft overhead, Ken and his fellow soldiers drove their vehicle onto Utah Beach in Normandy, France. This was day one of his 281 days of combat duty. During his tour, he was assigned to Pattons Third Army in their race across France towards the German homeland. They drove through towns and villages with strange sounding names; through the heat of summer and the frigid temperatures of winter; on dust covered dirt roads or through marshes and farm fields; all the while being harassed by enemy planes and the heavy artillery of a determined enemy. In December of 1944 their unit was pushed back when the Germans made an all out counter attack through the Ardennes Forest. Later, it would be called the Battle of the Bulge but for those that went through it, it was just called Hell. The names of the towns have long been forgotten and grass and crops; trees and flowers now cover the bloodied ground where brave men sacrificed and died. In Kens soft eyes and warm gentle smile, there is no hint of the horrible scenes he witnessed; the recollection of casualties; the endurance of bitter cold or stifling heat. For those who went through the horrors of war, those things remain buried deep within the heart. After fierce fighting, Kens unit rolled into Ranolsburg, Germany. There, for T-5 Sergeant Ken Buck and D Company of the 398th, the War came to an end. To their credit, they had captured a total of 629 prisoners of war; engaged 122 hostile aircraft and damaged or destroyed fifty of them. In addition, the company had provided artillery and fire power for every major battle engaged in by Third Army. In June of 1946, home from the war, Ken attended a barn dance at the local Grange Hall in Lockemills, Maine. The Grange Hall was the local hot spot for most small farming communities back in the day and it was there that he met a young lady named Margaret. She ignited a spark in him; and he in her. On Sept. 10 of that same year, they were married. Ken took a job at a paper mill in Rumford, Maine, where he worked as a millwright for the next 40 years. He and Margaret have two sons; Brian and Dale, both of whom inherited their Dads love of construction. They are both still living in Maine and are expert carpenters. During their marriage, Ken has built three homes for Margaret. The first, a log cabin required 1,700 cinder blocks for the foundation. Margaret jokingly remembers the number because she was the one who carried them. The second home was built in Bethel, Maine, and their third was constructed at a lake called Worthley Pond. Ken took full advantage of his education and his talents in erecting these structures. Even today, his neighbors and friends call upon him for his expertise in woodworking and other building skills. Lets just say that he has never lacked for work Margaret was the youngest of 13 children in her family. Her education was received at the Gould Academy from K and that ability to deal with large numbers of children coupled with the top notch education served her well in later years. After her boys started school, Margaret took a position with a local phone company and worked for seven years as a telephone operator. Later she would move on to the local school district where she worked as a teachers aide and the librarian. When asked why they moved to Florida, Margaret recalled watching Ken leave for work in the wee hours of the morning or late at night. I remember looking out and seeing nothing but sheer ice on the road; the yard; everywhere. Fed up with the cold winters of the north, when Ken retired, he and Margaret moved to Silver Springs and lived there for 12 years. When that neighborhood became overrun with young couples and children, they decided it was time to move to a quieter place. While driving around looking for a new home, they found Cherrywood and bought one of the first homes in the development. The road wasnt even paved when we moved in recalls Margaret. It was quiet. After 12 years at Cherrywood, they moved to Dunnellon where they stayed for four years in a doublewide mobile home. Because they had lived in conventional homes before that, they werent happy there. Ironically, when they looked to return to Cherrywood, a home right across the street from their first house was on the market. They scooped it up and have lived here ever since. Both Margaret and Ken love the neighborhood and their many friends. Margaret is an accomplished painter who likes to work in acrylics because of the bold colors. She paints a variety of work including birds; landscapes and country scenes recalled from her days in Maine. Ken is a member of the Cherrywood Veterans Club and finds no shortage of projects to keep him busy, as was stated before. His neighbors and friends see that he has very little spare time. Hes an expert woodworker, Margaret brags on her husband. If he can please me with his work he can please anyone. Ken just smiled broadly as she spoke. After 66 years of marriage, she still loves to brag about him and he still loves to hear her loving words. Ken and Margaret share their home and their love with Meggie the dachshund. Thats pretty cool if you ask this reporter. Thank you for your service Ken and thank you both for living here.From Your ReporterIf you have any questions; comments; ideas for articles that you would like to see in this section of the Citizen please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

In jubilation the allied nations would declare Nov. 11 as Armistice Day; a day of National Celebration. Scant years later, history would teach us that WW I was in fact not the War to end all wars. Many more would follow it including the Second World War; Korea; Vietnam; Operation Iraqi Freedom; the War on Terror and others. In there wake a new meaning for Nov. 11 would be born.

This week we are proud to feature long time residents Margaret and Ken Buck. Ken was born on a farm near the small town of Milton Plantation, Maine. He attended grade school in a one-room school house that was about five miles from his home. In order to get to school he took a horse and buggy but as luck would have it, a river ran between his home and the school house. In the summer time, he had to have the carriage ferried across the river on a rope operated barge and in the winter, he used the sled to traverse the distance from home to school. In spite of that, he did complete his grade school education and went on to Woodstock High School in Bryant Pond Maine. No river came between him SEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE17 John M.

This week we are proud to feature long time residents Margaret and Ken Buck. Ken was born on a farm near the small town of Milton Plantation, Maine. He attended grade school in a one-room school house that was about five miles from his home. In order to get to school he took a horse and buggy but as luck would have it, a river ran between his home and the school house. In the summer time, he had to have the carriage ferried across the river on a rope operated barge and in the winter, he used the sled to traverse the distance from home to school. In spite of that, he did complete his grade school education and went on to Woodstock High School in Bryant Pond Maine. No river came between him SEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE17 John M.

and his education at that point. After graduating from Woodstock Ken went on to Wentworth Institute in Boston Massachusetts where he completed his degree program in Building Construction. That was in 1943 during the Second World War. Naturally, after completing his education Uncle Sam called and he was drafted into the U.S. Army. Following extensive training, Ken was assigned to an anti-aircraft company. These men rode in half tracks that sported a variety of weapons designed to shoot down enemy aircraft. Because they were very mobile, they were utilized to protect field artillery positions; headquarters; and the flanks of fast moving tank and infantry units. Under the cover of darkness, just three weeks after DDay and with German aircraft overhead, Ken and his fellow soldiers drove their vehicle onto Utah Beach in Normandy, France. This was day one of his 281 days of combat duty. During his tour, he was assigned to Pattons Third Army in their race across France towards the German homeland. They drove through towns and villages with strange sounding names; through the heat of summer and the frigid temperatures of winter; on dust covered dirt roads or through marshes and farm fields; all the while being harassed by enemy planes and the heavy artillery of a determined enemy. In December of 1944 their unit was pushed back when the Germans made an all out counter attack through the Ardennes Forest. Later, it would be called the Battle of the Bulge but for those that went through it, it was just called Hell. The names of the towns have long been forgotten and grass and crops; trees and flowers now cover the bloodied ground where brave men sacrificed and died. In Kens soft eyes and warm gentle smile, there is no hint of the horrible scenes he witnessed; the recollection of casualties; the endurance of bitter cold or stifling heat. For those who went through the horrors of war, those things remain buried deep within the heart. After fierce fighting, Kens unit rolled into Ranolsburg, Germany. There, for T-5 Sergeant Ken Buck and D Company of the 398th, the War came to an end. To their credit, they had captured a total of 629 prisoners of war; engaged 122 hostile aircraft and damaged or destroyed fifty of them. In addition, the company had provided artillery and fire power for every major battle engaged in by Third Army. In June of 1946, home from the war, Ken attended a barn dance at the local Grange Hall in Lockemills, Maine. The Grange Hall was the local hot spot for most small farming communities back in the day and it was there that he met a young lady named Margaret. She ignited a spark in him; and he in her. On Sept. 10 of that same year, they were married. Ken took a job at a paper mill in Rumford, Maine, where he worked as a millwright for the next 40 years. He and Margaret have two sons; Brian and Dale, both of whom inherited their Dads love of construction. They are both still living in Maine and are expert carpenters. During their marriage, Ken has built three homes for Margaret. The first, a log cabin required 1,700 cinder blocks for the foundation. Margaret jokingly remembers the number because she was the one who carried them. The second home was built in Bethel, Maine, and their third was constructed at a lake called Worthley Pond. Ken took full advantage of his education and his talents in erecting these structures. Even today, his neighbors and friends call upon him for his expertise in woodworking and other building skills. Lets just say that he has never lacked for work Margaret was the youngest of 13 children in her family. Her education was received at the Gould Academy from K and that ability to deal with large numbers of children coupled with the top notch education served her well in later years. After her boys started school, Margaret took a position with a local phone company and worked for seven years as a telephone operator. Later she would move on to the local school district where she worked as a teachers aide and the librarian. When asked why they moved to Florida, Margaret recalled watching Ken leave for work in the wee hours of the morning or late at night. I remember looking out and seeing nothing but sheer ice on the road; the yard; everywhere. Fed up with the cold winters of the north, when Ken retired, he and Margaret moved to Silver Springs and lived there for 12 years. When that neighborhood became overrun with young couples and children, they decided it was time to move to a quieter place. While driving around looking for a new home, they found Cherrywood and bought one of the first homes in the development. The road wasnt even paved when we moved in recalls Margaret. It was quiet. After 12 years at Cherrywood, they moved to Dunnellon where they stayed for four years in a doublewide mobile home. Because they had lived in conventional homes before that, they werent happy there. Ironically, when they looked to return to Cherrywood, a home right across the street from their first house was on the market. They scooped it up and have lived here ever since. Both Margaret and Ken love the neighborhood and their many friends. Margaret is an accomplished painter who likes to work in acrylics because of the bold colors. She paints a variety of work including birds; landscapes and country scenes recalled from her days in Maine. Ken is a member of the Cherrywood Veterans Club and finds no shortage of projects to keep him busy, as was stated before. His neighbors and friends see that he has very little spare time. Hes an expert woodworker, Margaret brags on her husband. If he can please me with his work he can please anyone. Ken just smiled broadly as she spoke. After 66 years of marriage, she still loves to brag about him and he still loves to hear her loving words. Ken and Margaret share their home and their love with Meggie the dachshund. Thats pretty cool if you ask this reporter. Thank you for your service Ken and thank you both for living here.From Your ReporterIf you have any questions; comments; ideas for articles that you would like to see in this section of the Citizen please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

Fred Pulis Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 My father was not what you would call a literate person. Apart from the Bible, he did not read much of anything else on a regular basis. I can remember as a young person him quoting a great American patriot, Benjamin Franklin. The only quote he knew of this man was, Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. For a long time I thought he was making it up and then one day, I happened to run across a book in the library about Benjamin Franklin and, there it was. Benjamin actually did say that. I had to give my father that one. It seems that every time it got close to what my father termed as my bedtime, he would remind me of this famous quote. It got so I hated when bedtime came. At the time, I had my doubts about the validity of this quote because if my father followed this quote as he encouraged me to do, why was he not healthy, wealthy and wise? At the time, I was in no position to question his wisdom. I was wise enough to know that the best part of wisdom was not to challenge the wisdom of my father. This has attributed to my length of life to date. Incidentally, I have carried this over into my married life. According to my father, if I simply obeyed Franklins advice I would have a life filled with health, wealth and wisdom. The three things absolutely needed in life to make a person happy. Or, so Franklin would lead us to believe. After what seems to be a lifetime of living, and living in as much harmony of these two aspects of life, I must say that there is very little truth to be said concerning good old Franklins saying. No matter how early I go Early to bed and early to rise hasnt really worked for me to bed or how early I get up, I do not seem to be any wealthier or healthier. Perhaps, and this is only a guess on my part because I am not as wise as old Benjamin Franklin, you had to do something when you got up that contributed or created your wealth. Just a suggestion from me. That is the way it is with most sayings. They sound good; you sound wise in quoting them; but after every saying is quoted, nothing seems to change. They just do not cover the whole spectrum. It is not that I have not given it the good old college try; it just does not work for me. This past week I had an occasion to think about this quote. I have tried keeping the early to bed and early to rise objective in full focus throughout my life. I am not up partying until the wee hours of the morning. At my age, my party time is early afternoon. I have made a concerted effort to get enough rest and just to make sure I have enough rest I indulge in an afternoon nap. I am not sure where this comes in Benjamin Franklins quote. Recently, I had cause to reflect upon the validity of Benjamin Franklins sage advice. My quarterly taxes were due, and you know what good old Uncle Sam thinks about being late on his payments. If confession is good for the soul (another famous quote), I need to confess that while I was writing this check to Uncle Sam I had some rather harsh thoughts about him in the process. There, I said it. During the same week, some other bills were due and none of them would take no for an answer. Again, I must confess, while writing these checks I was sputtering to myself quite a bit. As I looked at my checkbook, I knew that the wealthy component of Benjamin Franklins quote did not come in my direction. I was simply out of wealth. Not only that, but I recently spent about four weeks sick with bronchitis and pneumonia and spent about three weeks in bed. Not only was I early to bed, but I was glued to my bed. How does that fit into Franklins saying? The healthy aspect of that quote has not fallen in my direction either. If you want to know about the wise element, simply query the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Another old phrase says, three strikes and youre out. Well, according to the Franklin saying, I must concede that I am out. I am not wealthy, in many regards Im not healthy and for sure, Im not wise. It is my opinion that there is a lot more to life than wise old sayings from some old man from the past. Benjamin Franklin, for example, no doubt practiced early to bed and early to rise but in the end, he died. That does not sound too healthy to me. Of course, the best place for wisdom is the Bible. I like what the wisest man in the world said, Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths (Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV). I am not too sure about the healthy and the wealthy components, that is up for grabs, but I am convinced the wise part comes from the Lord. After all, the Bible teaches us that God is Omniscient. If God knows everything and I know God, I am in a good position.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

There were 44 participants split into two teams, the USA and the Europeans. The first day was better ball of two team members from each side, match play. At the end of the day the USA led by a score of 7 to 4. On the second day the game was alternate shot, and again the USA prevailed by a score of 7 1/2 to 3 1/2. Thus, going into the singles matches on Friday the USA had a dominant lead of 14 1/2 to 7 1/2. Sound familiar to the real Ryder Cup? Friday saw the Europeans come out firing, winning 7 out of the first 8 matches. However, the USA rallied enough to make the final score for the day a win for the Europeans by 13 to 9. The overall score for the three days ended with a victory for the USA by a score of 23 1/2 to 20 1/2. All agreed it was an excellent tourney, and thanks go to Virgil Hein and Bill Ellin for setting up the teams and running the games. As usual the members enjoyed a fine lunch provided by the Royal Oaks Dining while the final results were tabulated. Already were looking forward to the next tournament, now that the fall season has arrived and the weather is somewhat cooler.Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn Oct. 3. we played low putts.

I certainly have. So I did what I usually do when I have questions about recycling, I contacted Jim Waddell. He told me Steve Routte, our ORHA president, is the current recycle coordinator. However, Jim sent me a great explanation that has clarified things for me. I hope it will help you too. The most important thing to remember is that the Marion County program you have been reading about does not apply to Oak Run! Nothing here has changed because ourFriday, October 12, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 12, 2012 www.smcitizen.com doctors have stated they will either cut back or stop taking Medicare patients (check with your own doctor), there will be a board, appointed by the president, that will have more power over our future health care than Obama admitted in the debate (check it out yourself), there are numerous hidden taxes that will hurt all of us, not just the very wealthy. Obama care must be repealed! Economically, where is the uproar over the $16 trillion debt we are passing down to our children? If Obama is re-elected the debt will probably reach $20 trillion and our country will face bankruptcy, destroying America as we know it. How can we even consider doing this to our children and grandchildren? Never in our history has a president been reelected with such a dismal four-year record. Never has there been a time when we face having two such different visions for Americas future. If you love America, and believe we are the greatest country in the world, if you believe in God, our creator, and you want his blessings to continue, there is no way you can vote for a present day Democrat. Think before you vote! Wayne Rackley OcalaAre we at war?Being a retiree I have been around the block a few times and have seen American administrations react differently during times of war. Our policies have always been to support our president no matter how we feel individually. We are a nation of laws served down by our constitution and supported by our government with the backing of our military. It seems that recently a number of politicians have been speaking against our government during this period of time while we are at war. For those of you who feel that we are not at war I ask you to read the newspapers or watch the news on TV, other than the Fox news station to get the truth. There are members of congress campaigning for re-election who speak against our president with hatred in their voices and with actions against our country. Governor Romney is campaigning against President Obama and speaking against every action we are taking in the Mideast where citizens of these countries are attacking American interests on a daily basis. If the Mideast is not at war with us, then who is attacking our embassies and killing our government officials. Maybe I am old fashioned but I feel strongly that you should not speak against or criticize our president during a time of war. Jerry Segovis OcalaOne Nation Under GodOne Nation Under God? You have got to be kidding! Which God? The God that I believe in is not the god of this world. The God that I believe in is not a god of hate but a god of love. He is God who wrote the Bible. And yes, if men had written the Bible they wouldnt have exposed the sings of their heroes like Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, David, Peter and others. People of all ages and generations are to learn from the mistakes of those Bible characters. God hates sin but loves sinners or none of us would have any hope. And the reason we have hope is because the only perfect human being that ever lived and was able to please God by dying for all sin was Jesus Christ. His life was to be an example for all of us. Because he was God in the flesh, he knew how to treat people; he could separate sin from the sinner. He loved prostitutes but hated their sin (John 4); he could forgive murdering thieves (Luke 23), like politicians and abortionists. God can even forgive homosexuals and change their heart and thinking if they will ask for his forgiveness (Romans 2, 1 John 1). All of us need to realize that having attitudes that reflect hatred toward other people rather than hatred of their sinful practices is not going to attract the unbelievers to the God of the Bible and the one and only God our forefathers worshiped when they founded America. God can bless the USWA if we return to him and value life and morality more than economics. Rev. T. William Fortune Marion OaksSomething is wrongPresident Obama says his proposed agenda will work if the rich are taxed more and the middle class is strengthened. Lets see, the top 5 percent of income earners already pay 60 percent of the nations income taxes. But Obama proposes to tax them even more. He also plans too strengthen the middle class ... you know, the middle class hes been weakening for the past four years. Okay, his tax the rich scheme would generate an additional $65 billion in 2013. But, hell spend $4 billion a day (hes already spending $3.5 billion a day ... the highest ever). The additional $65 billion in tax revenues will last about 16 days. Hmmmm! Now one would hope that a portion of the increased tax would be used to reduce our debt which is over $16 trillion. Nope! Instead, Obamas excessive spending would increase the debt to $17.5 trillion in 2013. So, wheres the money to LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 fund Obamas proposed agenda coming from? Well, he can continue borrowing money ... even though our debt is already $16 trillion, and growing ... until America eventually defaults. How about drastically reducing spending? No, then the people receiving the government entitlements they arent entitled to wouldnt receive those entitlements. That would be contrary to Obamas agenda. He hasnt proposed increasing taxes on the middle class yet! Wait! Now theres a possibility ... but what about that strengthening thing? Well, Im totally confused ... as probably are most citizens. Its quite obvious that something is drastically wrong with Obamas proposed agenda. Joe OHara OcalaRemember in NovemberThis November when Americans vote for the future president of the United States, it is important that the citizens consider the best person for doing what is best for this country. They must keep that in mind and not blind Party loyalty, ideological zealotry, or just purely personal interest. The country needs an informed electorate that votes on substance and not style. All voters in the upcoming election must Remember in November the following: Unresolved high unemployment, slow economic growth, loss of home value, rise in bankruptcy and foreclosure rates; Remember in November the high costs of Obama Care and how it was PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE10 Way Off Broadway ready to present Squad Room Blues OAK RUN C WCarol AnnWheeler PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE24 000CVNT Call for Thanksgiving & Christmas Rates IP Resort $159 pp/dbl Beau Rivage $175 pp/dbl SOT #36723 Biloxi Ca$ino Tours 3 Nights 10/29 11/05 11/20 11/26 12/10 12/23 Chance to win $50 CASH ONE FREE TRIP GIVEN AWAY EACH MONTH 352-840-0333 www.LauraKaneTravel.com Includes $55 in freeplay & two breakfast vouchers Ask about the 5 for $50 deal Tour Escort Janet Stefan Deluxe motor coach/3 nts. hotel Games played on the bus Refreshments served on bus Ocalas Only 4-Star Ocalas Only 4-Star Accommodations Accommodations for Your Pet for Your Pet Tour our unique Tour our unique facility and you facility and you be the judge! be the judge! 352-861-4566 352-861-4566 Boarding Grooming Boarding Grooming 10411 SW 105th Street Ocala 10411 SW 105th Street Ocala www.palmettokennels.com www.palmettokennels.com 000CS13 Kennel Pet Sitting Kennel Grooming Pet Sitting Look for us Look for us Look for us on Facebook on Facebook on Facebook 000CUML 6933 SW 179 Ave. Rd. 15 miles West of I-75 on SR 40 in Dunnellon (352) 522-0309 www.juliettefalls.com Must present coupon.

Friday, October 12, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 12, 2012 The Marion County sheriffs election is so far up in the air that its practically out of sight. Heres a summary as we see it: Candidate Dan Kuhn, who has been running for the office pretty much since Sheriff Ed Dean announced he would not seek reelection, withdrew from the race last week. Kuhn had apparently had an affair with a principal at the school where his wife teaches, and that principal decided that six weeks before the election would be a good time to make things public. That, of course, has led to a dialog among conspiracy theorists about the timing. Kuhn won the primary over Chris Blair, a former deputy and detective, and was scheduled to face Constitution Party representative Bernie DeCastro in the general election.. People were talking about writing in the name of Blair, now that Kuhn has withdrawn, but a recent story said that since he lost the primary, he couldnt be a write-in candidate. However, the Republican Party was to meet this week to pick someone to run in Kuhns place, and one of the leading names was Blair. So apparently its OK for him to run again that way, but not be written in. That seems a little strange. He should either be entitled to run again, or not. What if Blair runs again, and loses? He could become one of the first to ever lose twice in the same election. One of the criteria for a new candidate has been listed as the fact that he must be a Republican. Thats too bad. One of the best solutions would be to go to Dean and ask him to run again. Now we have another name thrown in, that of former sheriff Don Moreland. If he can straighten out this mess, more power to him. Another problem is that the ballots have already been printed. So whoever is chosen by the Republicans will not be on the ballot, but a vote for Dan Kuhn will be considered a vote for the new candidate. And what of those who still wish to vote for Kuhn? Since now their vote for Kuhn will be counted as a vote for the new candidate, can they write in Kuhns name? In that case, Kuhn will be running against himself. That could make for a fun night of counting at the elections office. How about those who have already submitted a ballot by mail, and thought they were voting for Dan Kuhn? Isnt that tantamount to election fraud, telling people who voted for Kuhn that their vote will be counted for someone else? And lets face it, there will be some who wont get the word that theres a new candidate, and their vote may go to someone they never heard of. Although Im on record as opposing early voting, I have endorsed it this year because of the ballot complicated by 11 amendments. Now Im rethinking that. At least I want to make sure who Im voting for. This year, in Marion County, that may not be easy to determine.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Today we take a look at two additional amendments that will be on the ballot on Nov. 6. Amendment 5 is titled simply, State courts. Thats a little misleading. Its a power grab by the Legislature to take more control over the Supreme Court. We are supposed to have three separate branches of government, judicial, legislative and executive. They are supposed to act independently. Evidently some legislators dont like that. They want to run everything in state government, so the Legislature put this on the ballot. Simply, it deserves a no vote. Then theres Amendment 6, sure to stir passions in a lot of people. The title is Prohibition of public funding of abortions; construction of abortion rights. The description provided to us says, Prohibits public fund expenditures for any abortion or for any health benefits coverage that includes coverage for abortion, but does not apply when the expenditure is required by federal law or where womans life is in danger or in case of rape or incest. Prohibits the use of Floridas express existing constitutional privacy clause by the courts in defending abortion rights. Even pro-life backers would have to concede that this is a toothless amendment. Its more or less a send a message amendment that will have no practical application, especially since almost all abortion rights cases are ultimately decided in federal courts. The big thing to us is that it would not allow challenges to partental notification laws. Sounds good, but sure to bring a costly court fight. It would be much more beneficial to pro-life forces to unite at the ballot box and make sure they are electing officials who feel the same way they do. Then they might have a chance of overturning federal decisions that go against the pro-life movement. So if you want to send a message, vote yes, as long as you dont complain later that the fight has become too costly. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Courts and abortion on the ballot Sheriffs election mess questions Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Government does not create jobs or wealth Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED The seemingly endless 2012 presidential campaigns have been as interesting as watching chefs tenderizing meat with serrated mallets. Issues have been pulverized into BS (baloney stuffing). Some voters have undoubtedly gone numb. Others may hope voting early will make the campaign noise go away. The term permanent campaign was coined by pollster Pat Caddell, who advised Jimmy Carter to begin his presidency by becoming a full-time, every-day salesman for re-election, including weekends, holidays, and vacations. Mr. Carter wasnt much of a salesman. He won the presidency with a humble one-sentence campaign: Hi. Im Jimmy Carter, and Im running for President. President Obama has been running for re-election since the moment he sat down in the oval office, picked up the phone and scheduled several months of trips across the country and around the world. Campaigning is what our Cheerleader in Chief does best. Identities have been the focus of the Republican side of the current campaign for the White House. Twelve aspirants appeared and disappeared during the primaries parade. They were mutually and embarrassingly destructive during their on stage quiz shows. The buffoonery of the Republican nomination process suggests holding the 2016 candidate selection in a soundproof, camera-free, smoke-filled back room. Before Republican advisers had determined which persona their widely accomplished nominee should emphasize, the Obama campaign had already decided to portray Mitt Romney as a greedy captive of big business. His accomplishments as governor of Massachusetts and as the successful turn-around manager of the failing 2002 Olympics have been denigrated as irrelevant to leading the nation. In return Republicans have depicted Mr. Obama as a standard model, tax and spend, big-government Democrat, whose primary interest is enlargement of the welfare state, and more White House control of national and state priorities. Despite occasional glimpses, neither presidential candidate has been specific enough to give voters a clear picture of what theyll be buying when they mark their ballots. Many voters will leave the polls wondering whether they made the right decision for the nation and their families. Recent presidents and congresses have forgotten conveniently where government money comes from. Perhaps they dont give a damn. Two consecutive administrations have played the credit card game, borrowing recklessly for their own political purposes, while reassuring the voters that deficits dont matter. The mutton heads who ran Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Italy into financial chaos still believe they can put their financial train back on track by borrowing and spending more money. The future of our nation depends on a robust recovery of our economy. Since the end of the great depression (1929-1941) our economy has been the source of our domestic prosperity and global prominence. National defense, national debt, entitlements, pensions, the banking system, the value of money and most other important concerns are dependent on one reliable source of wealth creation. Its the economy .. Palm Cay challengeThe Palm Cay community is having a food drive on Saturday, Nov. 3, to help fill the pantries at Interfaith Emergency Services. We would like to challenge other communities in this area not only to participate on their own but also to try to exceed the Palm Cay donation. This is an excellent opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many people here in Marion County. I hope that you will join us in this effort. Russ Hoyt Palm CayTwisting the truthI want to think that the vast majority of us do not fall for the medias twist and Obama TV ads that state Romney was talking about working people and/or retirees as part of the 47 percent who will not vote for him under any circumstances. If you do, we are in trouble for you are believing a lie, so listen carefully and accept the truth! He was honestly talking about the takers, who live off others tax money, and how they would not vote for him even if he could walk on water. This does not include those of us on Social Security or other programs where we paid into the program or received benefits as part of our compensation. He was not talking about working people who take individual responsibility for themselves and their families. Whether we want to accept it or not, we have allowed a large segment of society, easily over 40 percent, to work the system so they can live as well or better than the average middle class worker. Do some math homework, add welfare payments, free child care, section 8 housing allowance, free medical care, and food stamps to the numerous other giveaway programs we currently have in place. How can Romney or any candidate that promises to cut back on such programs, win their vote? The facts are that 99 percent of these takers will vote for Democrats. Who do you want to identify with? I also cant believe the number of retirees who believe Obama care is good for us. Consider the following: Medicare premiums will more than double by 2014, over $7 billion is to be cut from Medicare, at least 20 percent of PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 LANDINGCONTINUED FROM PAGE 19 Above, Marion Landing Variety Show cast finale.

Perhaps you already belong to an animal related club or organization in your community. It would be a great help to both our groups if at least one member could come to our meetings and act as a liaison between our organizations. This would help us exchange information regarding animal welfare, open up fostering opportunities for animals in need, and better serve the animals of Marion and surrounding counties. But you dont need to belong to another animal welfare group to join the SPCA. If youve always had a love of animals and want to channel that commitment into volunteering for a worthy cause, weve made it easier to do just that. Weve moved our meeting room to the Bank of the Ozarks in Friendship Center by Winn Dixie on State Road 200 so that is convenient for anyone to get to. We still meet on the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 1 p.m. For this month, the meeting date is Thursday, Oct. 18. While it is advantageous to come to our meetings, we know that you may have scheduling conflicts that make it impossible to attend. That does not have to preclude you from joining our organization. We have volunteering opportunities at different times of the day and week that you can fit in when you can. So please call us at 352-362-0985 if you would like to join or hear more about our activities even though you cant attend the meetings. Adoption NewsWe have important news for all cat lovers, especially those looking to adopt. We need to place two adult cats and three kittens pronto, because their foster caregiver will be relocating and cannot take them. The cats shown here, Kitten, a 5-year old tortoise female and Pumpkin, a 9year old black female, have been in foster care for a year waiting for their chance at a forever home. During this time they have been well loved, cared for, and socialized so that they will be great companions when they get to your home. Kitten and Pumpkin have been waiting so long if youve been thinking about getting an adult cat, please give Arlene a call at 352-875-9761 to check them out before proceeding any further. For those of you who are partial to kittens, she has two males and one female black and white: Coco, Cody and Panda. Pretty Panda is pictured here. Shes only 9 months old and ready to show you all the cute things shes learned in foster care. Coco and Cody are six months old and well show you their picture next month if theyre still available. A person from a local community needs your help. Due to an illness, she can no longer care for her cats. At 14 years old, theyre too old to be placed in a cage in a shelter even though theyre in great health, so they need to go to a new home. The male is Wilbur, a 13-pound long hair, and the female is Wilma, a little bitty 8pound short hair. Both are loving and affectionate. We can put their picture in next month if theyre still available. If you can help out a neighbor, please call Sharyn at 305-229-3708 to meet these cuties. We have a dog of the month from Animal Services named Nixon to tell you about. An unimpeachable source tells us that this little cutie could make someone from very happy. Hes one of those tiny guys at 6.8 pounds where every ounce really counts. Since hes already 3 years old, he wont get much bigger, but perhaps a few choice treats can have him tip the scales at 7 robust pounds in no time. We think you can tell that he has the adorable face of a terrier mix and a personality to match. He loves to snuggle and give kisses and who doesnt like that? To make things easier, he knows how to walk on a leash and gets along well with other animals. So he can be an only or a dog or cat brother how versatile. Before hes scooped up, please call Animal services at 352-6718700 and reference ID A082197. Or you can visit the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St., off Baseline Road. Adoption costs $40 which includes the spay/neuter fee, county licenses, vaccinations and microchip.Feisty Acres needs volunteersFeisty Acres, a dedicated cat and kitten sanctuary just north of here in Williston, is in desperate need of volunteers and donations. They especially need volunteers for hands on work around the facility. If you love cat rescue, and want to offer your services, please call Cheryl at 352804-4421 for more details. For much needed donations, their mailing address is Feisty Acres, P .O. Box 693, Williston FL 32696. All the cat rescue groups are filled to the brim with cats and can barely take any more in. It takes time for the countys relatively new Trap Neuter Release program to work its magic. Its also up to cat and kitten owners to responsibly spay/neuter your pet early so that they dont add to the overpopulation and put a further strain on these groups who work so hard with few resources. Veterinary newsWe have news about a new vet clinic that recently opened its doors nearby. A Family Veterinarian, at 7466 S.W. 60th Ave. in Jasmine Plaza off State Road 200, is a full service vet practice that treats dogs, cats, avians and exotics. The clinic is lead by Dr. Ed, formerly of the Banfield Pet Hospital in PetSmart, where some of you may know him from. What makes this practice different is that they are open on Saturdays and Sundays. However, they are closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You can call them at 352-671-9550 for an appointment or to check out the facility to see if it fits your needs. We want to remind everyone that a new afterhours veterinary emergency clinic opened up near the Paddock Mall. The clinic is called the University of Florida Pet Emergency Treatment Services at 3200 S.W. 27th Ave. The clinic has a green roof and a small sign on the side of the building. It is located between Palm Gardens and Qwick Check/The Vines Hospital. Anyone with a pet should take a dry run during the day to check it out so you dont get lost if you need their services in the middle of the night. The emergency clinic is open when most vets not: 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. Monday through Friday and 24 hour weekend and holiday service. The phone number is 352-512-0886 and the website is pets.vethospitals.ufl.edu Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

But appearances can be deceptive. Get the facts before going forth into the fray. TA URU S ( April 20 to May 20) Bullying others into agreeing with your position could cause resentment. Instead, persuade them to join you by making your case on a logical pointby-point basis. GEM INI ( May 21 to June 20) Resist pushing for a workplace decision you might feel is long overdue. Your impatience could backfire. Meanwhile, focus on that still-unsettled personal situation. CA NCE R ( June 21 to July 22) Your aspects favor doing something different. You might decide to redecorate your home, or take a trip somewhere youve never been, or even change your hairstyle. LEO ( July 23 to Aug. 22) You might want to take a break from your busy schedule to restore your energy levels. Use this lesshectic time to also reassess your plans and make needed changes. VIRG O ( Aug 23 to Sept. 22) What you like to think of as determination might be seen by others as nothing more than stubbornness. Try to be more flexible if you hope to get things resolved. LIBRA ( Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Watch that you dont unwittingly reveal work-related information to the wrong person. Best to say nothing until you get official clearance to open up. SCORPI O ( Oct. 23 to N ov 21) With things settling down at work or at home, you can now take on a new challenge without fear of distraction. Be open to helpful suggestions from colleagues. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to D ec. 21) Your creativity can help resolve an emotional situation that might otherwise get out of hand. Continue to be your usual caring, sensitive self. CAPRI CORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You could impress a lot of influential people with the way you untangle a few knotty problems. Meanwhile, a colleague is set to share some welcome news. A QUARIUS ( Jan. 20 to Feb 18) Aspects favor recharging your social life and meeting new people. Its also a good time to renew friendships that might be stagnating due to neglect on both sides. PI SCE S ( Feb 19 to March 20) Congratulations. Your talent for working out a highly technical problem earns you well-deserved praise. The weekend could bring news about a friend or relative.

We can take our recyclables to our recycle center here in Oak Run off the service road. These recyclables are picked up by Trade Mark Recycle Inc. We still must separate newspapers, tearable papers, phone books and aluminum cans. Trade Mark weighs each of these separate items and pays ORHA a per pound rate. ORHA receives from $200-300 per month. No plastic bottles, glass, cardboard or metal cans are accepted. If you wish to recycle these materials you must use a Marion County convenience centers like the one at the Highlands off County Road 484. They take mixtures of acceptable recyclables as you have been reading, but garbage must still put into a separate bin The mixed recyclables are made up of what was formerly placed in separate bins but is now deposited in one bin. These items are still only newspapers, tearable papers, card board, phone books, aluminum cans, metal cans (food, pet food, coffee, etc) and glass of all colors. These are transported to a facility where they go through various sorting steps which use magnets, screens and humans to separate these items. They do not accept plastic bags or shredded paper, both of which clog up the sorting mechanism. These items must be put in with the garbage. No garbage, which is primarily organic food stuffs and certain containers that are covered by wax or paraffin (like milk containers, etc), is to be put with the recyclables I hope this explanation has been helpful to you. Remember that nothing has changed in Oak Run. The only way you can recycle in Oak Run is to use the ORHA sponsored recycle bins on the service road, and material must be separated as it always has. If you wish to recycle with acceptable recyclables mixed together, you must go to a Marion County recycling facility, and non recyclables must be disposed of separately. OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 then a couple pieces of bacon. I called 911 and reported what happened. They said, Of course, were having meatier showers. Life is like a doughnut; youre either in the dough or in the hole. As I stood in line screaming in terror while the cashier handed me two quarters, one dime and a nickel, I was hit with the sad realization that I was afraid of change. He is as broke and as frustrated as a pickpocket in a nudist colony. A gent from Glasgow exclaimed in frustration: I just washed my kilt, and I cant do a fling with it.Worthy causeA driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway when a man knocked on his window. The driver asked, Whats going on? Terrorists kidnapped Congress and are asking for a $100 million dollar ransom. Otherwise, they are going to douse them all in gasoline and set them on fire. We are going from car to car, taking up a collection. How much is everyone giving, on average? the driver asked. The man replied, About a gallon. Keep calmIn the supermarket, a woman was pushing a cart that contained a screaming, bellowing baby. The lady kept repeating softly, Dont get excited, Sally. Dont scream, Sally. Dont yell, Sally. Keep calm, Sally. A man standing next to her said, You certainly are to be commended for trying to soothe your daughter Sally. The lady looked at him and said, Sir, Im Sally.

If they show symptoms, these patients should be evaluated immediately by their health care professional and monitored or treated as necessary. Patients without symptoms should be evaluated by their health care professionals. Although fungal meningitis that is caused by the contaminated medicine cannot be transmitted from person to person, more cases could come to light. Infected patients have presented with symptoms as long as four weeks following their injection with the contaminated medicine. Symptoms may include fever, new or worsening headache, nausea, or new symptoms consistent with a stroke, such as weakness on one side of the body and slurred speech. Some of these patients symptoms were very mild in nature. If individuals are experiencing any of these and have had an injection at the Florida Pain Clinic, Marion Pain Management Center or the Surgery Center of Ocala since May 21, they should contact their health care provider. On Sept. 21, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was notified by the Tennessee Department of Health of a patient with the onset of meningitis approximately 19 days following epidural steroid injection at a Tennessee ambulatory surgical center. All initial cultures of cerebrospinal fluid and blood were negative; subsequently the patient had Aspergillus fumigatus isolated from the fluid by fungal culture. On Sept. 28, investigators identified a case outside of Tennessee, possibly indicating contamination of a widely-distributed medication.

Friday, October 12, 2012 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 2~ Friday, October 12, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Breathing new life into a well-known Civil War battleCAIN AT GETTYSBURG By Ralph Peters Readers may raise the questionwhy another book on the Battle of Gettysburg when 6,000 are still in print. The answer is that Ralph Peters is a consummate story teller and the subject remains a worthy one. Cain at Gettysburg differs from Michael Shaaras magnificent if somewhat romantic The Killer Angels in its grittiness and its you-are-there reality. A work of fiction but true to historical facts, it serves up the very soul of battle. The three-day blood fest in July 1863 outside the town of Gettysburg took a staggering toll of American lives. Casualties in the 26th North Carolina Infantry Regiment alone were higher than any other regiment on either side; 709 Confederate soldiers fell killed or wounded out of 8,000. What precisely happened during those tense, dramatic, lethal hours would become the ongoing subject of speculation, assertion and counter assertion for years. As a result of the battle, reputations would be made or destroyed. Most interesting is the light Peters shines on four principals General Robert E. Lee, General George G. Meade, General James Longstreet and General Daniel Sickles. Attempting to explain Lees ill-advised frontal attack on a well-positioned Union army across miles of open field, he creates a possible conversation when Longstreet tries to dissuade Lee from ordering the attack: Its my opinion that no fifteen thousand men ever arrayed for battle can take that position. This wouldnt be an attack, but a useless sacrifice. Lee responds, The enemy is there and I am going to strike him. In his research, Peters found that at that time Lee suffered from serous intestinal problems; he felt betrayed and hurt by Jeb Stuarts failure to appear with invaluable scouting information. Stuart had been like a son to Lee. Then Lee also found Meade an unworthy adversary and of course, he was somewhat blindsided by a sense of honor above all in attacking instead of waiting to be attacked. For his part Meade was stunned to find himself commander of the Union Army of the Potomac, a position he had not sought. Immediately, his peers became his subordinates in an uneasy relationship. Still, he persevered to victory but was ultimately maligned even so. One of his maligners was the despicable Sickles, a political general hoping battlefield success would propel him to the White House. But in disobeying orders at Gettysburg he allowed the Rebels to overrun his opposition. This superb narrative breathes new life into a well-known battle. BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington Several months ago the political ads started along with those bothersome telephone calls. We got a respite after the primary elections; but now theyre back the never-ending TV ads and the annoying telephone calls, most of which come at dinnertime. Makes you want to scream. Todays the day! Its the International Moment of Frustration Scream Day. Go ahead, scream! To help, Pun Alley has some screaming stories for you.Cant boot correctlyIn Vermont during the winter a teacher was helping one of her kindergarten students to put on his boots. He asked for help and she could see why. With her pulling and him pushing, the boots still didnt want to go on. When the second boot was on, she had worked up a sweat. She almost whimpered when the little boy said, Teacher, theyre on the wrong feet. She looked and sure enough, they were. It wasnt any easier pulling the boots off than it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the boots back on, this time on the right feet. He then announced, These arent my boots. She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream, Why didnt you say so? like she wanted to. Once again she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off. He then said, Theyre my brothers boots. My Mom made me wear them. She didnt know if she should laugh or cry. She mustered up the grace to wrestle the boots on his feet again. She said, Now, where are your mittens? He said, I stuffed them in the toes of my boots.Screaming liftAfter the passengers on a commercial airliner were seated, the pilot and copilot began walking up to the cockpit. Both appeared to be blind. The pilot was using a white cane, bumping into passengers, and the copilot had a guide dog. Both had their eyes covered with huge sunglasses. At first the passengers thought it was a practical joke. However, when the engines started and the airplane moved erratically towards the runway, the passengers had a lot of doubt. When the airplane accelerated rapidly people began panicking. As the plane got closer to the end of the runway, the voices became hysterical. Finally, when the airplane had less than 20 feet of runway left, everyone screamed at once, and at the very last moment the airplane lifted off and was airborne. Up in the cockpit, the copilot breathed a sigh of relief and turned to the pilot, You know, one of these days the passengers arent going to scream, and were gonna get killed!YellsI walked out of my house and was immediately hit in the head with a slice of ham. That was followed by a pound of ground beef, Let it out! Today is International Moment of Frustration Scream Day PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank PLEASESEEPUN, PAGE24 Amendment 5Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site):Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitution relating to the judiciary. The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for the practice and procedure in all courts. The constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. This proposed constitutional revision eliminates the requirement that a general law repealing a court rule pass by a twothirds vote of each house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general law approved by a majority vote of each house of the Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legislature determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the court from further readopting the repealed rule without the Legislatures prior approval. Under current law, rules of the judicial nominating commissions and the Judicial Qualifications Commission may be repealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. Under this proposed revision, a vote to repeal those rules is changed to repeal by general law enacted by a majority vote of the legislators present. Under current law, the Governor appoints a justice of the Supreme Court from a list of nominees provided by a judicial nominating commission, and appointments by the Governor are not subject to confirmation. This revision requires Senate confirmation of a justice of the Supreme Court before the appointee can take office. If the Senate votes not to confirm the appointment, the judicial nominating commission must reconvene and may not renominate any person whose prior appointment to fill the same vacancy was not confirmed by the Senate. For the purpose of confirmation, the Senate may meet at any time. If the Senate fails to vote on the appointment of a justice within 90 days, the justice will be deemed confirmed and will take office. The Judicial Qualifications Commission is an independent commission created by the State Constitution to investigate and prosecute before the Florida Supreme Court alleged misconduct by a justice or judge. Currently under the constitution, commission proceedings are confidential until formal charges are filed by the investigative panel of the commission. Once formal charges are filed, the formal charges and all further proceedings of the commission are public. Currently, the constitution authorizes the House of Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may request, and the Judicial Qualifications Commission must make available, all information in the commissions possession for use in deciding whether to impeach a justice or judge. This proposed revision requires the commission to make all of its files available to the Speaker of the House of Representatives but provides that such files would remain confidential during any investigation by the House of Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit of an impeachment of a justice or judge. This revision also removes the power of the Governor to request files of the Judicial Qualifications Commission to conform to a prior constitutional change. This revision also makes technical and clarifying additions and deletions relating to the selection of chief judges of a circuit and relating to the Judicial Qualifications Commission, and makes other nonsubstantive conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of the constitution.Arguments for:Supporters say the measure would make the appellate court system run more efficiently and add a layer of accountability before Supreme Court justices are appointed.Arguments against: Opponents say the measure is a dangerous attempt to exert political influence over the judicial branch by giving legislators more authority. Should the State Senate Confirm Florida Supreme Court Appointees?Amendment 5 is about the balance of power among the judicial, legislative and executive branches of government. One of the more meaningful provision is the one granting the state Senate confirmation power over appointees to the Florida Supreme Court. Currently, the governor fills openings on the court by appointing a nominee from a list presented by a judicial nominating commission. If passed, this amendment would allow the Senate to reject or approve nominees. It would also give members of the state House of Representatives access to confidential files involving judges accused of misconduct, and would give lawmakers the right to repeal procedural court rules with a simple majority vote rather than a two-thirds majority vote, as currently required. Supporters say it would bring change to a court system that gives the governor too much power in appointing judges. Opponents say it would politicize the process and shift the balance of power by giving the Legislature too much influence over the judiciary. The measure passed the Legislature largely along party lines, with Republicans in favor and Democrats against. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If passed, it becomes effective on Jan. 8, 2013.HistoryOver its first 40 years after becoming a state in 1845, Florida changed the way it decides who sits on the Supreme Court a half-dozen times, from Legislative appointment, to popular elections, to gubernatorial appointment with Senate oversight, and then back to popular elections. Starting in 1972, Florida ended the popular election of justices and changed to a merit selection system. That process begins when a vacancy opens on the court and a Judicial Nominating Commission compiles a list of three to six nominees to present to the governor. The governor selects an appointee from that list who is then seated on the court. After being appointed, justices serve six-year terms and face voters in a yes or no retention vote at the end of each term to decide whether they remain in office, based on the merit of their service.How Florida ComparesAbout a dozen states use a gubernatorial appointment system similar to the one Florida currently uses to select Supreme Court justices, according to the National Center for State Courts. Another dozen states have some sort of state Senate or other legislative confirmation process like that being proposed in Amendment 5. The remaining states let the public choose their Supreme Court justices, mostly through non-partisan elections. Title on ballot: State Courts Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This measure would provide for Senate confirmation of Supreme Court justices; give lawmakers control over changes to the rules governing the court system; and direct the Judicial Qualifications Commission, which investigates judicial misconduct complaints, to make its files available to the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives. If you vote yes: A yes vote means you want the Senate to have confirmation power over Supreme Court appointees, and some authority over changes to the rules that govern the states courts. You also want to grant the House access to Judicial Qualifications Commissions investigative files on judges. If you vote no: A no vote means you do not want these proposed changes made to the states judiciary. Amendment 6Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site):This proposed amendment provides that public funds may not be expended for any abortion or for health-benefits coverage that includes coverage of abortion. This prohibition does not apply to an expenditure required by federal law, a case in which a woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or physical illness that would place her in danger of death unless an abortion is performed, or a case of rape or incest. This proposed amendment provides that the State Constitution may not be interpreted to create broader rights to an abortion than those contained in the United States Constitution. With respect to abortion, this proposed amendment overrules court decisions which conclude that the right of privacy under Article I, Section 23 of the State Constitution is broader in scope than that of the United States Constitution.Arguments for: Supporters say this makes it clear Florida prohibits public funding for abortions and gives the public a voice in deciding state abortion law.Arguments against: Opponents say this amendment discriminates against women, strips away a womans fundamental right to choose, and erodes established law, including rights of privacy.Should federal abortion laws be enshrined in the state constitution? And should the states constitutional right to privacy be modified? Amendment 6 raises two questions related to abortion rights in Florida. The first whether the state constitution should reflect the existing federal prohibitions on the public funding of abortions would not change current abortion funding practices in Florida. The second whether to modify a provision in the state constitution that guarantees a right to privacy for every Floridian would affect abortion law in the state. As to the impact on state law, the first question matters less than the second. For several decades, federal law has prohibited the expenditure of federal funds for most abortions (exceptions include rape, incest and medical conditions that threaten the mothers life). Amendment 6 would not expand those prohibitions. If passed, it would simply duplicate the existing federal prohibitions. The second question is more consequential. In 1980, Florida voters passed a constitutional amendment that says, in part: Every natural person has the right to be let alone and free from governmental intrusion into the persons private life This privacy right is often used to challenge abortion measures passed by Florida lawmakers. Over the years, courts have cited the clause when blocking parental-notification laws involving pregnant minors and laws requiring doctors to counsel women about alternatives to abortion. The law was pivotal in a landmark case in 1989 that prevented Gov. Jeb Bush from stopping a pregnant 13-yearold in state custody from choosing to have an abortion. In short, passage of Amendment 6 would mean parental-notification laws or other types of procedural abortion legislation passed by state lawmakers would no longer be subject to challenge under the states privacy law. Supporters say this amendment puts the state on even footing with the federal government and allows the electorate to express its opinion on abortion law. Its a broad enough value issue that we should let the public speak, state Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, a sponsor of the amendment, told the Ocala Star-Banner. I think its far-reaching and its controversial, but we as a state will address the sanctity of life, which is a foundational issue. Opponents say it is a pre-emptive strike on a womans right to choose. This amendment would roll back womens rights as protected under the Florida Constitution. We would be reversing that express right to privacy, Stephanie Kunkel, the former executive director of Planned Parenthood of Florida, told the Ocala Star-Banner. The Florida House approved the measure by a 79-34 vote. The Florida Senate voted 27-12 to approve the measure. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved, the bill will go into effect on Jan. 8, 2013.HistoryBy 1965, abortions were deemed illegal in all 50 states. As a result, many women began to utilize illegal underground abortion services. In 1973, the landmark United States Supreme Court decision, Roe V. Wade, reformed abortion law. The Court recognized that a woman has a constitutionally protected right to terminate pregnancy until her fetus is viable, which the law says is at about 24 weeks gestation. Abortions beyond that legally defined viability period can occur to protect the mothers life. In 2007, a total of 91,954 abortions were performed in Florida, according to a state analysis of the bill that became Amendment 6. For 83,890 of those, the gestational age of the fetus was 12 weeks and under; for 8,063, the gestational age of the fetus was 13 to 24 weeks; and for one, the gestational age was over 25 weeks.The Hyde Amendment In 1976, three years after Roe v. Wade, a federal legislative provision called the Hyde Amendment passed, which prohibited the use of public money for abortions except in cases of rape, incest and for preserving the life of the mother. The Hyde Amendment, introduced by Rep. Henry J. Hyde, R-Ill, prevents Medicaid and any other programs under the Department of Health and Human Services to fund abortions. Based on the Hyde Amendment, Medicaid reimburses for abortions if: The woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or physical illness, including a life-endangering physical condition caused or arising from the pregnancy itself that would place the woman in danger of death unless an abortion is performed. When the pregnancy is the result of rape (sexual battery). When the pregnancy is the result of incest.State Privacy LawIn the 1970s, a newspaper reporter seeking to obtain the records of a private consulting firms search for a managing director of a public utility invoked the states public records law. Not wanting to make the documents public, the consulting firm argued that the states constitution protected individuals from government intrusion, according to a review of the states privacy law in the book, Constitutional Politics in the States. The case eventually ended up before the Florida Supreme Court, and in January 1980 the court said it found no language in the state constitution guaranteeing a right to privacy. Soon after, a bipartisan group of lawmakers introduced a resolution to establish a constitutional right to privacy. Their intent was to limit government intrusion into the private lives of individuals. Title on Ballot: Prohibition on Public Funding of Abortions; Construction of Abortion Rights Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would make the existing federal ban on public funding for most abortions part of the state constitution. It would narrow the scope of a state privacy law that is sometimes used in Florida to challenge abortion laws. If you vote yes: A yes vote means you support putting the existing federal ban on the use of public funds for abortions into the state constitution; and you support eliminating the states privacy right with respect to a womans right to choose. IF you vote no: A no vote means you are against placing the existing federal ban on using public funds for abortions into the state constitution; and you are against eliminating the states privacy right with respect to a womans right to choose. www.nutechhearing.com M-F 9:00 to 4:00 p.m. Sat. and Sun.

REEDER Special to the CitizenActing students from Marion County Center for the Arts at West Port High School will perform in an improv show, Latt and Laughter, where audience members can enjoy food and beverage as they watch the performance. Janet Shelley, acting and musical theater instructor at West Port, said the comedy show is a favorite with our audiences. The performance will be presented at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 13 at West Port High Schools Performing Arts Center, located at 3733 S.W. 80th Avenue in Ocala. Instead of being seated in the house of the theater, audience members sit at tables on stage where they not only get to be close to the high school actors but are served beverages by the students as well. Because of this arrangement, seating is limited and people are encouraged to arrive early. Tickets are $7. Tickets may be purchased at www.westportwolfpack.org or at the door. Price includes admission, as well as a beverage and dessert. They love the experience of sitting up on stage with the performers in such an intimate atmosphere, Shelley said about the audience. There is some audience participation in the show as well, which makes them feel like a part of it. For more information, contact Janet Shelley or Laurie Reeder at 352-2914000. Latt and Laughter has to be one of the best entertainment bargains in Ocala, Shelley added. Where else can you get a great dessert, coffee or tea, and a show?

Fourth of a series of candidate appearances at a forum held at the library.BY JIM CLARK EditorSchool superintendent candidates took to the floor at a recent forum at the downtown library. Dr. Diana Greene, the Democratic candidate, spoke first. She emphasized her history in education in Marion County, from elementary school teacher to deputy superintendent. She noted that the district needs to reorganize to deal with the shrinking budget. She noted that the schools were receiving less money but were still expected to provide a quality education. She was asked about the fact that Marion County is the largest district in the state that still elects a superintendent and how she would create a good relationship with the School Board. It is a challenge, she said. There are six different people with six different agendas. She said she would meet monthly with each individual board member. Asked about teacher morale, she noted, Everything is not always about money. Teachers need to know theyre appreciated.

Officials would not release the persons name or area of residence. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of the victim, said Dr. Nathan Grossman, director of the Marion County Health Department. We are working hard to ensure that the people who may have been treated with the contaminated medicine are contacted and receive the treatment they need. The death occurred in mid-July, before the discovery of the contaminated lots of New England Compounding Center methylprednisolone acetate used for epidural back injections. Marion County Health Department staff discovered the link between the death of the 70-year-old resident and the contaminated steroid during the investigation of the fungal meningitis outbreak. The Health Department has discovered six fungal meningitis cases linked to the contaminated steroid in Marion County. In partnership with the Florida Pain Clinic, Marion Pain Management Center and the Surgery Center of Ocala, the Marion County Health Department is working to ensure that every patient who may have been injected with the contaminated steroid is contacted. Since the Health Department began its investigation on Oct. 1, more than 350 patients of the three clinics who may have been injected with the contaminated medicine have been contacted.

REEDER Special to the Citizen Acting students from Marion County Center for the Arts at West Port High School will perform in an improv show, Latt and Laughter, where audience members can enjoy food and beverage as they watch the performance. Janet Shelley, acting and musical theater instructor at West Port, said the comedy show is a favorite with our audiences. The performance will be presented at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 13 at West Port High Schools Performing Arts Center, located at 3733 S.W. 80th Avenue in Ocala. Instead of being seated in the house of the theater, audience members sit at tables on stage where they not only get to be close to the high school actors but are served beverages by the students as well. Because of this arrangement, seating is limited and people are encouraged to arrive early. Tickets are $7. Tickets may be purchased at www.westportwolfpack.org or at the door. Price includes admission, as well as a beverage and dessert. They love the experience of sitting up on stage with the performers in such an intimate atmosphere, Shelley said about the audience. There is some audience participation in the show as well, which makes them feel like a part of it. For more information, contact Janet Shelley or Laurie Reeder at 352-2914000. Latt and Laughter has to be one of the best entertainment bargains in Ocala, Shelley added. Where else can you get a great dessert, coffee or tea, and a show?

Friday, October 12, 2012 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 2 ~ Friday, October 12, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Breathing new life into a well-known Civil War battleCAIN AT GETTYSBURG By Ralph Peters Readers may raise the questionwhy another book on the Battle of Gettysburg when 6,000 are still in print. The answer is that Ralph Peters is a consummate story teller and the subject remains a worthy one. Cain at Gettysburg differs from Michael Shaaras magnificent if somewhat romantic The Killer Angels in its grittiness and its you-are-there reality. A work of fiction but true to historical facts, it serves up the very soul of battle. The three-day blood fest in July 1863 outside the town of Gettysburg took a staggering toll of American lives. Casualties in the 26th North Carolina Infantry Regiment alone were higher than any other regiment on either side; 709 Confederate soldiers fell killed or wounded out of 8,000. What precisely happened during those tense, dramatic, lethal hours would become the ongoing subject of speculation, assertion and counter assertion for years. As a result of the battle, reputations would be made or destroyed. Most interesting is the light Peters shines on four principals General Robert E. Lee, General George G. Meade, General James Longstreet and General Daniel Sickles. Attempting to explain Lees ill-advised frontal attack on a well-positioned Union army across miles of open field, he creates a possible conversation when Longstreet tries to dissuade Lee from ordering the attack: Its my opinion that no fifteen thousand men ever arrayed for battle can take that position. This wouldnt be an attack, but a useless sacrifice. Lee responds, The enemy is there and I am going to strike him. In his research, Peters found that at that time Lee suffered from serous intestinal problems; he felt betrayed and hurt by Jeb Stuarts failure to appear with invaluable scouting information. Stuart had been like a son to Lee. Then Lee also found Meade an unworthy adversary and of course, he was somewhat blindsided by a sense of honor above all in attacking instead of waiting to be attacked. For his part Meade was stunned to find himself commander of the Union Army of the Potomac, a position he had not sought. Immediately, his peers became his subordinates in an uneasy relationship. Still, he persevered to victory but was ultimately maligned even so. One of his maligners was the despicable Sickles, a political general hoping battlefield success would propel him to the White House. But in disobeying orders at Gettysburg he allowed the Rebels to overrun his opposition. This superb narrative breathes new life into a well-known battle. B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington S everal months ago the political ads started along with those bothersome telephone calls. We got a respite after the primary elections; but now theyre back the never-ending TV ads and the annoying telephone calls, most of which come at dinnertime. Makes you want to scream. Todays the day! Its the International Moment of Frustration Scream Day. Go ahead, scream! To help, Pun Alley has some screaming stories for you. Cant boot correctlyIn Vermont during the winter a teacher was helping one of her kindergarten students to put on his boots. He asked for help and she could see why. With her pulling and him pushing, the boots still didnt want to go on. When the second boot was on, she had worked up a sweat. She almost whimpered when the little boy said, Teacher, theyre on the wrong feet. She looked and sure enough, they were. It wasnt any easier pulling the boots off than it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the boots back on, this time on the right feet. He then announced, These arent my boots. She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream, Why didnt you say so? like she wanted to. Once again she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off. He then said, Theyre my brothers boots. My Mom made me wear them. She didnt know if she should laugh or cry. She mustered up the grace to wrestle the boots on his feet again. She said, Now, where are your mittens? He said, I stuffed them in the toes of my boots. Screaming lift After the passengers on a commercial airliner were seated, the pilot and copilot began walking up to the cockpit. Both appeared to be blind. The pilot was using a white cane, bumping into passengers, and the copilot had a guide dog. Both had their eyes covered with huge sunglasses. At first the passengers thought it was a practical joke. However, when the engines started and the airplane moved erratically towards the runway, the passengers had a lot of doubt. When the airplane accelerated rapidly people began panicking. As the plane got closer to the end of the runway, the voices became hysterical. Finally, when the airplane had less than 20 feet of runway left, everyone screamed at once, and at the very last moment the airplane lifted off and was airborne. Up in the cockpit, the copilot breathed a sigh of relief and turned to the pilot, You know, one of these days the passengers arent going to scream, and were gonna get killed! YellsI walked out of my house and was immediately hit in the head with a slice of ham. That was followed by a pound of ground beef, Let it out! Today is International Moment of Frustration Scream Day P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank PLEASESEEPUN PAGE24 Amendment 5Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site): Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitution relating to the judiciary. The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for the practice and procedure in all courts. The constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. This proposed constitutional revision eliminates the requirement that a general law repealing a court rule pass by a twothirds vote of each house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general law approved by a majority vote of each house of the Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legislature determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the court from further readopting the repealed rule without the Legislatures prior approval. Under current law, rules of the judicial nominating commissions and the Judicial Qualifications Commission may be repealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. Under this proposed revision, a vote to repeal those rules is changed to repeal by general law enacted by a majority vote of the legislators present. Under current law, the Governor appoints a justice of the Supreme Court from a list of nominees provided by a judicial nominating commission, and appointments by the Governor are not subject to confirmation. This revision requires Senate confirmation of a justice of the Supreme Court before the appointee can take office. If the Senate votes not to confirm the appointment, the judicial nominating commission must reconvene and may not renominate any person whose prior appointment to fill the same vacancy was not confirmed by the Senate. For the purpose of confirmation, the Senate may meet at any time. If the Senate fails to vote on the appointment of a justice within 90 days, the justice will be deemed confirmed and will take office. The Judicial Qualifications Commission is an independent commission created by the State Constitution to investigate and prosecute before the Florida Supreme Court alleged misconduct by a justice or judge. Currently under the constitution, commission proceedings are confidential until formal charges are filed by the investigative panel of the commission. Once formal charges are filed, the formal charges and all further proceedings of the commission are public. Currently, the constitution authorizes the House of Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may request, and the Judicial Qualifications Commission must make available, all information in the commissions possession for use in deciding whether to impeach a justice or judge. This proposed revision requires the commission to make all of its files available to the Speaker of the House of Representatives but provides that such files would remain confidential during any investigation by the House of Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit of an impeachment of a justice or judge. This revision also removes the power of the Governor to request files of the Judicial Qualifications Commission to conform to a prior constitutional change. This revision also makes technical and clarifying additions and deletions relating to the selection of chief judges of a circuit and relating to the Judicial Qualifications Commission, and makes other nonsubstantive conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of the constitution. Arguments for:Supporters say the measure would make the appellate court system run more efficiently and add a layer of accountability before Supreme Court justices are appointed. Arguments against: Opponents say the measure is a dangerous attempt to exert political influence over the judicial branch by giving legislators more authority. Should the State Senate Confirm Florida Supreme Court Appointees?Amendment 5 is about the balance of power among the judicial, legislative and executive branches of government. One of the more meaningful provision is the one granting the state Senate confirmation power over appointees to the Florida Supreme Court. Currently, the governor fills openings on the court by appointing a nominee from a list presented by a judicial nominating commission. If passed, this amendment would allow the Senate to reject or approve nominees. It would also give members of the state House of Representatives access to confidential files involving judges accused of misconduct, and would give lawmakers the right to repeal procedural court rules with a simple majority vote rather than a two-thirds majority vote, as currently required. Supporters say it would bring change to a court system that gives the governor too much power in appointing judges. Opponents say it would politicize the process and shift the balance of power by giving the Legislature too much influence over the judiciary. The measure passed the Legislature largely along party lines, with Republicans in favor and Democrats against. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If passed, it becomes effective on Jan. 8, 2013. HistoryOver its first 40 years after becoming a state in 1845, Florida changed the way it decides who sits on the Supreme Court a half-dozen times, from Legislative appointment, to popular elections, to gubernatorial appointment with Senate oversight, and then back to popular elections. Starting in 1972, Florida ended the popular election of justices and changed to a merit selection system. That process begins when a vacancy opens on the court and a Judicial Nominating Commission compiles a list of three to six nominees to present to the governor. The governor selects an appointee from that list who is then seated on the court. After being appointed, justices serve six-year terms and face voters in a yes or no retention vote at the end of each term to decide whether they remain in office, based on the merit of their service.How Florida ComparesAbout a dozen states use a gubernatorial appointment system similar to the one Florida currently uses to select Supreme Court justices, according to the National Center for State Courts. Another dozen states have some sort of state Senate or other legislative confirmation process like that being proposed in Amendment 5. The remaining states let the public choose their Supreme Court justices, mostly through non-partisan elections. Title on ballot: State Courts Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This measure would provide for Senate confirmation of Supreme Court justices; give lawmakers control over changes to the rules governing the court system; and direct the Judicial Qualifications Commission, which investigates judicial misconduct complaints, to make its files available to the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives. If you vote yes: A yes vote means you want the Senate to have confirmation power over Supreme Court appointees, and some authority over changes to the rules that govern the states courts. You also want to grant the House access to Judicial Qualifications Commissions investigative files on judges. If you vote no: A no vote means you do not want these proposed changes made to the states judiciary. Amendment 6Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site): This proposed amendment provides that public funds may not be expended for any abortion or for health-benefits coverage that includes coverage of abortion. This prohibition does not apply to an expenditure required by federal law, a case in which a woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or physical illness that would place her in danger of death unless an abortion is performed, or a case of rape or incest. This proposed amendment provides that the State Constitution may not be interpreted to create broader rights to an abortion than those contained in the United States Constitution. With respect to abortion, this proposed amendment overrules court decisions which conclude that the right of privacy under Article I, Section 23 of the State Constitution is broader in scope than that of the United States Constitution. Arguments for: Supporters say this makes it clear Florida prohibits public funding for abortions and gives the public a voice in deciding state abortion law.Arguments against: Opponents say this amendment discriminates against women, strips away a womans fundamental right to choose, and erodes established law, including rights of privacy.Should federal abortion laws be enshrined in the state constitution? And should the states constitutional right to privacy be modified? Amendment 6 raises two questions related to abortion rights in Florida. The first whether the state constitution should reflect the existing federal prohibitions on the public funding of abortions would not change current abortion funding practices in Florida. The second whether to modify a provision in the state constitution that guarantees a right to privacy for every Floridian would affect abortion law in the state. As to the impact on state law, the first question matters less than the second. For several decades, federal law has prohibited the expenditure of federal funds for most abortions (exceptions include rape, incest and medical conditions that threaten the mothers life). Amendment 6 would not expand those prohibitions. If passed, it would simply duplicate the existing federal prohibitions. The second question is more consequential. In 1980, Florida voters passed a constitutional amendment that says, in part: Every natural person has the right to be let alone and free from governmental intrusion into the persons private life This privacy right is often used to challenge abortion measures passed by Florida lawmakers. Over the years, courts have cited the clause when blocking parental-notification laws involving pregnant minors and laws requiring doctors to counsel women about alternatives to abortion. The law was pivotal in a landmark case in 1989 that prevented Gov. Jeb Bush from stopping a pregnant 13-yearold in state custody from choosing to have an abortion. In short, passage of Amendment 6 would mean parental-notification laws or other types of procedural abortion legislation passed by state lawmakers would no longer be subject to challenge under the states privacy law. Supporters say this amendment puts the state on even footing with the federal government and allows the electorate to express its opinion on abortion law. Its a broad enough value issue that we should let the public speak, state Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, a sponsor of the amendment, told the Ocala Star-Banner. I think its far-reaching and its controversial, but we as a state will address the sanctity of life, which is a foundational issue. Opponents say it is a pre-emptive strike on a womans right to choose. This amendment would roll back womens rights as protected under the Florida Constitution. We would be reversing that express right to privacy, Stephanie Kunkel, the former executive director of Planned Parenthood of Florida, told the Ocala Star-Banner. The Florida House approved the measure by a 79-34 vote. The Florida Senate voted 27-12 to approve the measure. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved, the bill will go into effect on Jan. 8, 2013. HistoryBy 1965, abortions were deemed illegal in all 50 states. As a result, many women began to utilize illegal underground abortion services. In 1973, the landmark United States Supreme Court decision, Roe V. Wade, reformed abortion law. The Court recognized that a woman has a constitutionally protected right to terminate pregnancy until her fetus is viable, which the law says is at about 24 weeks gestation. Abortions beyond that legally defined viability period can occur to protect the mothers life. In 2007, a total of 91,954 abortions were performed in Florida, according to a state analysis of the bill that became Amendment 6. For 83,890 of those, the gestational age of the fetus was 12 weeks and under; for 8,063, the gestational age of the fetus was 13 to 24 weeks; and for one, the gestational age was over 25 weeks. The Hyde Amendment In 1976, three years after Roe v. Wade, a federal legislative provision called the Hyde Amendment passed, which prohibited the use of public money for abortions except in cases of rape, incest and for preserving the life of the mother. The Hyde Amendment, introduced by Rep. Henry J. Hyde, R-Ill, prevents Medicaid and any other programs under the Department of Health and Human Services to fund abortions. Based on the Hyde Amendment, Medicaid reimburses for abortions if: The woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or physical illness, including a life-endangering physical condition caused or arising from the pregnancy itself that would place the woman in danger of death unless an abortion is performed. When the pregnancy is the result of rape (sexual battery). When the pregnancy is the result of incest. State Privacy LawIn the 1970s, a newspaper reporter seeking to obtain the records of a private consulting firms search for a managing director of a public utility invoked the states public records law. Not wanting to make the documents public, the consulting firm argued that the states constitution protected individuals from government intrusion, according to a review of the states privacy law in the book, Constitutional Politics in the States. The case eventually ended up before the Florida Supreme Court, and in January 1980 the court said it found no language in the state constitution guaranteeing a right to privacy. Soon after, a bipartisan group of lawmakers introduced a resolution to establish a constitutional right to privacy. Their intent was to limit government intrusion into the private lives of individuals. Title on Ballot: Prohibition on Public Funding of Abortions; Construction of Abortion Rights Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would make the existing federal ban on public funding for most abortions part of the state constitution. It would narrow the scope of a state privacy law that is sometimes used in Florida to challenge abortion laws. If you vote yes: A yes vote means you support putting the existing federal ban on the use of public funds for abortions into the state constitution; and you support eliminating the states privacy right with respect to a womans right to choose. IF you vote no: A no vote means you are against placing the existing federal ban on using public funds for abortions into the state constitution; and you are against eliminating the states privacy right with respect to a womans right to choose. www.nutechhearing.com M-F 9:00 to 4:00 p.m. Sat. and Sun.

If they show symptoms, these patients should be evaluated immediately by their health care professional and monitored or treated as necessary. Patients without symptoms should be evaluated by their health care professionals. Although fungal meningitis that is caused by the contaminated medicine cannot be transmitted from person to person, more cases could come to light. Infected patients have presented with symptoms as long as four weeks following their injection with the contaminated medicine. Symptoms may include fever, new or worsening headache, nausea, or new symptoms consistent with a stroke, such as weakness on one side of the body and slurred speech. Some of these patients symptoms were very mild in nature. If individuals are experiencing any of these and have had an injection at the Florida Pain Clinic, Marion Pain Management Center or the Surgery Center of Ocala since May 21, they should contact their health care provider. On Sept. 21, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was notified by the Tennessee Department of Health of a patient with the onset of meningitis approximately 19 days following epidural steroid injection at a Tennessee ambulatory surgical center. All initial cultures of cerebrospinal fluid and blood were negative; subsequently the patient had Aspergillus fumigatus isolated from the fluid by fungal culture. On Sept. 28, investigators identified a case outside of Tennessee, possibly indicating contamination of a widely-distributed medication.

We can take our recyclables to our recycle center here in Oak Run off the service road. These recyclables are picked up by Trade Mark Recycle Inc. We still must separate newspapers, tearable papers, phone books and aluminum cans. Trade Mark weighs each of these separate items and pays ORHA a per pound rate. ORHA receives from $200-300 per month. No plastic bottles, glass, cardboard or metal cans are accepted. If you wish to recycle these materials you must use a Marion County convenience centers like the one at the Highlands off County Road 484. They take mixtures of acceptable recyclables as you have been reading, but garbage must still put into a separate bin The mixed recyclables are made up of what was formerly placed in separate bins but is now deposited in one bin. These items are still only newspapers, tearable papers, card board, phone books, aluminum cans, metal cans (food, pet food, coffee, etc) and glass of all colors. These are transported to a facility where they go through various sorting steps which use magnets, screens and humans to separate these items. They do not accept plastic bags or shredded paper, both of which clog up the sorting mechanism. These items must be put in with the garbage. No garbage, which is primarily organic food stuffs and certain containers that are covered by wax or paraffin (like milk containers, etc), is to be put with the recyclables I hope this explanation has been helpful to you. Remember that nothing has changed in Oak Run. The only way you can recycle in Oak Run is to use the ORHA sponsored recycle bins on the service road, and material must be separated as it always has. If you wish to recycle with acceptable recyclables mixed together, you must go to a Marion County recycling facility, and non recyclables must be disposed of separately. OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 then a couple pieces of bacon. I called 911 and reported what happened. They said, Of course, were having meatier showers. Life is like a doughnut; youre either in the dough or in the hole. As I stood in line screaming in terror while the cashier handed me two quarters, one dime and a nickel, I was hit with the sad realization that I was afraid of change. He is as broke and as frustrated as a pickpocket in a nudist colony. A gent from Glasgow exclaimed in frustration: I just washed my kilt, and I cant do a fling with it.Worthy causeA driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway when a man knocked on his window. The driver asked, Whats going on? Terrorists kidnapped Congress and are asking for a $100 million dollar ransom. Otherwise, they are going to douse them all in gasoline and set them on fire. We are going from car to car, taking up a collection. How much is everyone giving, on average? the driver asked. The man replied, About a gallon. Keep calmIn the supermarket, a woman was pushing a cart that contained a screaming, bellowing baby. The lady kept repeating softly, Dont get excited, Sally. Dont scream, Sally. Dont yell, Sally. Keep calm, Sally. A man standing next to her said, You certainly are to be commended for trying to soothe your daughter Sally. The lady looked at him and said, Sir, Im Sally.

Friday, October 12, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, October 12, 2012 www.smcitizen.com AR IE S ( March 21 to April 19) You might feel compelled to get involved on the right side of a seemingly unfair fight. But appearances can be deceptive. Get the facts before going forth into the fray. TA U R U S ( April 20 to May 20) Bullying others into agreeing with your position could cause resentment. Instead, persuade them to join you by making your case on a logical pointby-point basis. GE M INI ( May 21 to June 20) Resist pushing for a workplace decision you might feel is long overdue. Your impatience could backfire. Meanwhile, focus on that still-unsettled personal situation. CA N C E R ( June 21 to July 22) Your aspects favor doing something different. You might decide to redecorate your home, or take a trip somewhere youve never been, or even change your hairstyle. LE O ( July 23 to Aug 22) You might want to take a break from your busy schedule to restore your energy levels. Use this lesshectic time to also reassess your plans and make needed changes. VI R G O ( Aug 23 to Sept 22) What you like to think of as determination might be seen by others as nothing more than stubbornness. Try to be more flexible if you hope to get things resolved. LIB RA ( Sept 23 to Oct 22) Watch that you dont unwittingly reveal work-related information to the wrong person. Best to say nothing until you get official clearance to open up. SCORP I O ( Oct 23 to N ov 21) With things settling down at work or at home, you can now take on a new challenge without fear of distraction. Be open to helpful suggestions from colleagues. SA GI TTAR IU S (N ov 22 to D ec 21) Your creativity can help resolve an emotional situation that might otherwise get out of hand. Continue to be your usual caring, sensitive self. CAPR I COR N (D ec 22 to Jan 19) You could impress a lot of influential people with the way you untangle a few knotty problems. Meanwhile, a colleague is set to share some welcome news. A QU AR IU S ( Jan 20 to Feb 18) Aspects favor recharging your social life and meeting new people. Its also a good time to renew friendships that might be stagnating due to neglect on both sides. P I SC E S ( Feb 19 to March 20) Congratulations. Your talent for working out a highly technical problem earns you well-deserved praise. The weekend could bring news about a friend or relative.

Perhaps you already belong to an animal related club or organization in your community. It would be a great help to both our groups if at least one member could come to our meetings and act as a liaison between our organizations. This would help us exchange information regarding animal welfare, open up fostering opportunities for animals in need, and better serve the animals of Marion and surrounding counties. But you dont need to belong to another animal welfare group to join the SPCA. If youve always had a love of animals and want to channel that commitment into volunteering for a worthy cause, weve made it easier to do just that. Weve moved our meeting room to the Bank of the Ozarks in Friendship Center by Winn Dixie on State Road 200 so that is convenient for anyone to get to. We still meet on the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 1 p.m. For this month, the meeting date is Thursday, Oct. 18. While it is advantageous to come to our meetings, we know that you may have scheduling conflicts that make it impossible to attend. That does not have to preclude you from joining our organization. We have volunteering opportunities at different times of the day and week that you can fit in when you can. So please call us at 352-362-0985 if you would like to join or hear more about our activities even though you cant attend the meetings. Adoption NewsWe have important news for all cat lovers, especially those looking to adopt. We need to place two adult cats and three kittens pronto, because their foster caregiver will be relocating and cannot take them. The cats shown here, Kitten, a 5-year old tortoise female and Pumpkin, a 9year old black female, have been in foster care for a year waiting for their chance at a forever home. During this time they have been well loved, cared for, and socialized so that they will be great companions when they get to your home. Kitten and Pumpkin have been waiting so long if youve been thinking about getting an adult cat, please give Arlene a call at 352-875-9761 to check them out before proceeding any further. For those of you who are partial to kittens, she has two males and one female black and white: Coco, Cody and Panda. Pretty Panda is pictured here. Shes only 9 months old and ready to show you all the cute things shes learned in foster care. Coco and Cody are six months old and well show you their picture next month if theyre still available. A person from a local community needs your help. Due to an illness, she can no longer care for her cats. At 14 years old, theyre too old to be placed in a cage in a shelter even though theyre in great health, so they need to go to a new home. The male is Wilbur, a 13-pound long hair, and the female is Wilma, a little bitty 8pound short hair. Both are loving and affectionate. We can put their picture in next month if theyre still available. If you can help out a neighbor, please call Sharyn at 305-229-3708 to meet these cuties. We have a dog of the month from Animal Services named Nixon to tell you about. An unimpeachable source tells us that this little cutie could make someone from very happy. Hes one of those tiny guys at 6.8 pounds where every ounce really counts. Since hes already 3 years old, he wont get much bigger, but perhaps a few choice treats can have him tip the scales at 7 robust pounds in no time. We think you can tell that he has the adorable face of a terrier mix and a personality to match. He loves to snuggle and give kisses and who doesnt like that? To make things easier, he knows how to walk on a leash and gets along well with other animals. So he can be an only or a dog or cat brother how versatile. Before hes scooped up, please call Animal services at 352-6718700 and reference ID A082197. Or you can visit the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St., off Baseline Road. Adoption costs $40 which includes the spay/neuter fee, county licenses, vaccinations and microchip. Feisty Acres needs volunteersFeisty Acres, a dedicated cat and kitten sanctuary just north of here in Williston, is in desperate need of volunteers and donations. They especially need volunteers for hands on work around the facility. If you love cat rescue, and want to offer your services, please call Cheryl at 352804-4421 for more details. For much needed donations, their mailing address is Feisty Acres, P .O. Box 693, Williston FL 32696. All the cat rescue groups are filled to the brim with cats and can barely take any more in. It takes time for the countys relatively new Trap Neuter Release program to work its magic. Its also up to cat and kitten owners to responsibly spay/neuter your pet early so that they dont add to the overpopulation and put a further strain on these groups who work so hard with few resources.

We want to remind everyone that a new afterhours veterinary emergency clinic opened up near the Paddock Mall. The clinic is called the University of Florida Pet Emergency Treatment Services at 3200 S.W. 27th Ave. The clinic has a green roof and a small sign on the side of the building. It is located between Palm Gardens and Qwick Check/The Vines Hospital. Anyone with a pet should take a dry run during the day to check it out so you dont get lost if you need their services in the middle of the night. The emergency clinic is open when most vets not: 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. Monday through Friday and 24 hour weekend and holiday service. The phone number is 352-512-0886 and the website is pets.vethospitals.ufl.edu Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

October Speaker Diabetes management is the subject our speaker will discuss on Tuesday, Oct. 16, after the social. Diabetes management requires awareness, and knowing what makes your blood sugar level rise and falland how to control these day-to-day factors is an important part of a diabetes management plan. In her presentation, Sharon Jones, RN, and director of nursing at Angels Care Home Health, will discuss the disease process, patient self-care management, the importance of medications, activity and dietary management. If you would like to learn more about this important topic, please plan on staying after the Tuesday Social on Oct. 16. Variety show a hitThe Sunshine Committee did it again and sponsored another great fundraiser. The Lifestyle Center was a tropical paradise on Saturday night, Sept. 22, with a terrific dinner and wonderful entertainment by community members which delighted a sold out crowd. The careful planning and attention to detail by Chairperson Janice Wood, assisted by Co-chair Lois Norris, the decorations by Leta Simmons and Merry Anne Krell, and a meal with carving station catered by My Sons Catering ensured the evening went off without a hitch. Gordon Herrick was the M.C. of the evening, and Nancy Scott led the invocation. The entertainment lineup couldnt be beat. Songs, some serious and some not, were performed by Rich and Gail Sanborn, Charlie Mock, Jerry Rae King with Randy VanZalkenburgh and accompanied by Ardith Thomas, who also sang with Jackie Santone, Mary Ann Hall, Gloria Wilberg accompanied by Marta Bruenn, George Taragna, Sharon Talbert accompanied by John Kalivoda; a poem by Joan Ritter with her animals; and a medley by the Kitchen Kookies Band, whose members are Joan Dopler, leader; Nadine Perry, keyboard; Mary Jo Eggers, Merry Anne Krell, Barbara Litchert, John Metzger, Noreen Metzger, Martha Nierenberg, Shirley Pohlers, Bob Schmidt, Donna Schmidt, Shirley Seckman, Jan Sekurski and Kaz Sekurski. As with any event here in Marion Landing, it couldnt have been done without the help of many dedicated volunteers, and wed like to thank them for their efforts: sound, Art Dopler; videotaping, John Metzger; programs, Gloria Wilberg; and lattice construction, Bill Jackson.

Friday, October 12, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, October 12, 2012 T he Marion County sheriffs election is so far up in the air that its practically out of sight. Heres a summary as we see it: Candidate Dan Kuhn, who has been running for the office pretty much since Sheriff Ed Dean announced he would not seek reelection, withdrew from the race last week. Kuhn had apparently had an affair with a principal at the school where his wife teaches, and that principal decided that six weeks before the election would be a good time to make things public. That, of course, has led to a dialog among conspiracy theorists about the timing. Kuhn won the primary over Chris Blair, a former deputy and detective, and was scheduled to face Constitution Party representative Bernie DeCastro in the general election.. People were talking about writing in the name of Blair, now that Kuhn has withdrawn, but a recent story said that since he lost the primary, he couldnt be a write-in candidate. However, the Republican Party was to meet this week to pick someone to run in Kuhns place, and one of the leading names was Blair. So apparently its OK for him to run again that way, but not be written in. That seems a little strange. He should either be entitled to run again, or not. What if Blair runs again, and loses? He could become one of the first to ever lose twice in the same election. One of the criteria for a new candidate has been listed as the fact that he must be a Republican. Thats too bad. One of the best solutions would be to go to Dean and ask him to run again. Now we have another name thrown in, that of former sheriff Don Moreland. If he can straighten out this mess, more power to him. Another problem is that the ballots have already been printed. So whoever is chosen by the Republicans will not be on the ballot, but a vote for Dan Kuhn will be considered a vote for the new candidate. And what of those who still wish to vote for Kuhn? Since now their vote for Kuhn will be counted as a vote for the new candidate, can they write in Kuhns name? In that case, Kuhn will be running against himself. That could make for a fun night of counting at the elections office. How about those who have already submitted a ballot by mail, and thought they were voting for Dan Kuhn? Isnt that tantamount to election fraud, telling people who voted for Kuhn that their vote will be counted for someone else? And lets face it, there will be some who wont get the word that theres a new candidate, and their vote may go to someone they never heard of. Although Im on record as opposing early voting, I have endorsed it this year because of the ballot complicated by 11 amendments. Now Im rethinking that. At least I want to make sure who Im voting for. This year, in Marion County, that may not be easy to determine. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

T oday we take a look at two additional amendments that will be on the ballot on Nov. 6. Amendment 5 is titled simply, State courts. Thats a little misleading. Its a power grab by the Legislature to take more control over the Supreme Court. We are supposed to have three separate branches of government, judicial, legislative and executive. They are supposed to act independently. Evidently some legislators dont like that. They want to run everything in state government, so the Legislature put this on the ballot. Simply, it deserves a no vote. Then theres Amendment 6, sure to stir passions in a lot of people. The title is Prohibition of public funding of abortions; construction of abortion rights. The description provided to us says, Prohibits public fund expenditures for any abortion or for any health benefits coverage that includes coverage for abortion, but does not apply when the expenditure is required by federal law or where womans life is in danger or in case of rape or incest. Prohibits the use of Floridas express existing constitutional privacy clause by the courts in defending abortion rights. Even pro-life backers would have to concede that this is a toothless amendment. Its more or less a send a message amendment that will have no practical application, especially since almost all abortion rights cases are ultimately decided in federal courts. The big thing to us is that it would not allow challenges to partental notification laws. Sounds good, but sure to bring a costly court fight. It would be much more beneficial to pro-life forces to unite at the ballot box and make sure they are electing officials who feel the same way they do. Then they might have a chance of overturning federal decisions that go against the pro-life movement. So if you want to send a message, vote yes, as long as you dont complain later that the fight has become too costly. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Courts and abortion on the ballot Sheriffs election mess questions Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Government does not create jobs or wealth Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED T he seemingly endless 2012 presidential campaigns have been as interesting as watching chefs tenderizing meat with serrated mallets. Issues have been pulverized into BS (baloney stuffing). Some voters have undoubtedly gone numb. Others may hope voting early will make the campaign noise go away. The term permanent campaign was coined by pollster Pat Caddell, who advised Jimmy Carter to begin his presidency by becoming a full-time, every-day salesman for re-election, including weekends, holidays, and vacations. Mr. Carter wasnt much of a salesman. He won the presidency with a humble one-sentence campaign: Hi. Im Jimmy Carter, and Im running for President. President Obama has been running for re-election since the moment he sat down in the oval office, picked up the phone and scheduled several months of trips across the country and around the world. Campaigning is what our Cheerleader in Chief does best. Identities have been the focus of the Republican side of the current campaign for the White House. Twelve aspirants appeared and disappeared during the primaries parade. They were mutually and embarrassingly destructive during their on stage quiz shows. The buffoonery of the Republican nomination process suggests holding the 2016 candidate selection in a soundproof, camera-free, smoke-filled back room. Before Republican advisers had determined which persona their widely accomplished nominee should emphasize, the Obama campaign had already decided to portray Mitt Romney as a greedy captive of big business. His accomplishments as governor of Massachusetts and as the successful turn-around manager of the failing 2002 Olympics have been denigrated as irrelevant to leading the nation. In return Republicans have depicted Mr. Obama as a standard model, tax and spend, big-government Democrat, whose primary interest is enlargement of the welfare state, and more White House control of national and state priorities. Despite occasional glimpses, neither presidential candidate has been specific enough to give voters a clear picture of what theyll be buying when they mark their ballots. Many voters will leave the polls wondering whether they made the right decision for the nation and their families. Recent presidents and congresses have forgotten conveniently where government money comes from. Perhaps they dont give a damn. Two consecutive administrations have played the credit card game, borrowing recklessly for their own political purposes, while reassuring the voters that deficits dont matter. The mutton heads who ran Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Italy into financial chaos still believe they can put their financial train back on track by borrowing and spending more money. The future of our nation depends on a robust recovery of our economy. Since the end of the great depression (1929-1941) our economy has been the source of our domestic prosperity and global prominence. National defense, national debt, entitlements, pensions, the banking system, the value of money and most other important concerns are dependent on one reliable source of wealth creation. Its the economy .. Palm Cay challengeThe Palm Cay community is having a food drive on Saturday, Nov. 3, to help fill the pantries at Interfaith Emergency Services. We would like to challenge other communities in this area not only to participate on their own but also to try to exceed the Palm Cay donation. This is an excellent opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many people here in Marion County. I hope that you will join us in this effort. Russ Hoyt Palm CayTwisting the truthI want to think that the vast majority of us do not fall for the medias twist and Obama TV ads that state Romney was talking about working people and/or retirees as part of the 47 percent who will not vote for him under any circumstances. If you do, we are in trouble for you are believing a lie, so listen carefully and accept the truth! He was honestly talking about the takers, who live off others tax money, and how they would not vote for him even if he could walk on water. This does not include those of us on Social Security or other programs where we paid into the program or received benefits as part of our compensation. He was not talking about working people who take individual responsibility for themselves and their families. Whether we want to accept it or not, we have allowed a large segment of society, easily over 40 percent, to work the system so they can live as well or better than the average middle class worker. Do some math homework, add welfare payments, free child care, section 8 housing allowance, free medical care, and food stamps to the numerous other giveaway programs we currently have in place. How can Romney or any candidate that promises to cut back on such programs, win their vote? The facts are that 99 percent of these takers will vote for Democrats. Who do you want to identify with?

Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe annual Ryder Cup Tournament was played over three days, Oct. 1, 3, and concluded on the 5th. There were 44 participants split into two teams, the USA and the Europeans. The first day was better ball of two team members from each side, match play. At the end of the day the USA led by a score of 7 to 4. On the second day the game was alternate shot, and again the USA prevailed by a score of 7 1/2 to 3 1/2. Thus, going into the singles matches on Friday the USA had a dominant lead of 14 1/2 to 7 1/2. Sound familiar to the real Ryder Cup? Friday saw the Europeans come out firing, winning 7 out of the first 8 matches. However, the USA rallied enough to make the final score for the day a win for the Europeans by 13 to 9. The overall score for the three days ended with a victory for the USA by a score of 23 1/2 to 20 1/2. All agreed it was an excellent tourney, and thanks go to Virgil Hein and Bill Ellin for setting up the teams and running the games. As usual the members enjoyed a fine lunch provided by the Royal Oaks Dining while the final results were tabulated. Already were looking forward to the next tournament, now that the fall season has arrived and the weather is somewhat cooler.Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn Oct. 3. we played low putts.

Just another reminder to sign up for Halloween Golf on Nov. 1. Looking forward to having a good time. Carol Anns Corner RecyclingHave you been confused about changes in recycling in Marion County? I certainly have. So I did what I usually do when I have questions about recycling, I contacted Jim Waddell. He told me Steve Routte, our ORHA president, is the current recycle coordinator. However, Jim sent me a great explanation that has clarified things for me. I hope it will help you too. The most important thing to remember is that the Marion County program you have been reading about does not apply to Oak Run! Nothing here has changed because our Friday, October 12, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, October 12, 2012 www.smcitizen.com doctors have stated they will either cut back or stop taking Medicare patients (check with your own doctor), there will be a board, appointed by the president, that will have more power over our future health care than Obama admitted in the debate (check it out yourself), there are numerous hidden taxes that will hurt all of us, not just the very wealthy. Obama care must be repealed! Economically, where is the uproar over the $16 trillion debt we are passing down to our children? If Obama is re-elected the debt will probably reach $20 trillion and our country will face bankruptcy, destroying America as we know it. How can we even consider doing this to our children and grandchildren? Never in our history has a president been reelected with such a dismal four-year record. Never has there been a time when we face having two such different visions for Americas future. If you love America, and believe we are the greatest country in the world, if you believe in God, our creator, and you want his blessings to continue, there is no way you can vote for a present day Democrat. Think before you vote! Wayne Rackley Ocala Are we at war? Being a retiree I have been around the block a few times and have seen American administrations react differently during times of war. Our policies have always been to support our president no matter how we feel individually. We are a nation of laws served down by our constitution and supported by our government with the backing of our military. It seems that recently a number of politicians have been speaking against our government during this period of time while we are at war. For those of you who feel that we are not at war I ask you to read the newspapers or watch the news on TV, other than the Fox news station to get the truth. There are members of congress campaigning for re-election who speak against our president with hatred in their voices and with actions against our country. Governor Romney is campaigning against President Obama and speaking against every action we are taking in the Mideast where citizens of these countries are attacking American interests on a daily basis. If the Mideast is not at war with us, then who is attacking our embassies and killing our government officials. Maybe I am old fashioned but I feel strongly that you should not speak against or criticize our president during a time of war. Jerry Segovis Ocala One Nation Under God One Nation Under God? You have got to be kidding! Which God? The God that I believe in is not the god of this world. The God that I believe in is not a god of hate but a god of love. He is God who wrote the Bible. And yes, if men had written the Bible they wouldnt have exposed the sings of their heroes like Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, David, Peter and others. People of all ages and generations are to learn from the mistakes of those Bible characters. God hates sin but loves sinners or none of us would have any hope. And the reason we have hope is because the only perfect human being that ever lived and was able to please God by dying for all sin was Jesus Christ. His life was to be an example for all of us. Because he was God in the flesh, he knew how to treat people; he could separate sin from the sinner. He loved prostitutes but hated their sin (John 4); he could forgive murdering thieves (Luke 23), like politicians and abortionists. God can even forgive homosexuals and change their heart and thinking if they will ask for his forgiveness (Romans 2, 1 John 1). All of us need to realize that having attitudes that reflect hatred toward other people rather than hatred of their sinful practices is not going to attract the unbelievers to the God of the Bible and the one and only God our forefathers worshiped when they founded America. God can bless the USWA if we return to him and value life and morality more than economics. Rev. T. William Fortune Marion Oaks Something is wrongPresident Obama says his proposed agenda will work if the rich are taxed more and the middle class is strengthened. Lets see, the top 5 percent of income earners already pay 60 percent of the nations income taxes. But Obama proposes to tax them even more. He also plans too strengthen the middle class ... you know, the middle class hes been weakening for the past four years. Okay, his tax the rich scheme would generate an additional $65 billion in 2013. But, hell spend $4 billion a day (hes already spending $3.5 billion a day ... the highest ever). The additional $65 billion in tax revenues will last about 16 days. Hmmmm! Now one would hope that a portion of the increased tax would be used to reduce our debt which is over $16 trillion. Nope! Instead, Obamas excessive spending would increase the debt to $17.5 trillion in 2013. So, wheres the money to LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 fund Obamas proposed agenda coming from? Well, he can continue borrowing money ... even though our debt is already $16 trillion, and growing ... until America eventually defaults. How about drastically reducing spending? No, then the people receiving the government entitlements they arent entitled to wouldnt receive those entitlements. That would be contrary to Obamas agenda. He hasnt proposed increasing taxes on the middle class yet! Wait! Now theres a possibility ... but what about that strengthening thing? Well, Im totally confused ... as probably are most citizens. Its quite obvious that something is drastically wrong with Obamas proposed agenda. Joe OHara Ocala Remember in NovemberThis November when Americans vote for the future president of the United States, it is important that the citizens consider the best person for doing what is best for this country. They must keep that in mind and not blind Party loyalty, ideological zealotry, or just purely personal interest. The country needs an informed electorate that votes on substance and not style. All voters in the upcoming election must Remember in November the following: Unresolved high unemployment, slow economic growth, loss of home value, rise in bankruptcy and foreclosure rates; Remember in November the high costs of Obama Care and how it was PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE10 Way Off Broadway ready to present Squad Room Blues O AK RUN C W Carol AnnWheeler PLEASESEEOAK RUN PAGE24 0 0 0 C V N T Call for Thanksgiving & Christmas Rates IP Resort $159 pp/dbl Beau Rivage $175 pp/dbl SOT #36723 Biloxi Ca$ino Tours 3 Nights 10/29 11/05 11/20 11/26 12/10 12/23 Chance to win $50 CASH ONE FREE TRIP GIVEN AWAY EACH MONTH 352-840-0333 www.LauraKaneTravel.com Includes $55 in freeplay & two breakfast vouchers Ask about the 5 for $50 deal Tour Escort Janet Stefan Deluxe motor coach/3 nts. hotel Games played on the bus Refreshments served on bus Ocalas Only 4-Star Ocalas Only 4-Star Accommodations Accommodations for Your Pet for Your Pet Tour our unique Tour our unique facility and you facility and you be the judge! be the judge! 352-861-4566 352-861-4566 B o a r d i n g G r o o m i n g Boarding Grooming 10411 SW 105th Street Ocala 10411 SW 105th Street Ocala www.palmettokennels.com www.palmettokennels.com 000CS13 Kennel Pet Sitting Kennel Grooming Pet Sitting L o o k f o r u s L o o k f o r u s Look for us o n F a c e b o o k o n F a c e b o o k on Facebook 000CUML 6933 SW 179 Ave. Rd. 15 miles West of I-75 on SR 40 in Dunnellon (352) 522-0309 www.juliettefalls.com Must present coupon.

Fred Pulis Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 M y father was not what you would call a literate person. Apart from the Bible, he did not read much of anything else on a regular basis. I can remember as a young person him quoting a great American patriot, Benjamin Franklin. The only quote he knew of this man was, Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. For a long time I thought he was making it up and then one day, I happened to run across a book in the library about Benjamin Franklin and, there it was. Benjamin actually did say that. I had to give my father that one. It seems that every time it got close to what my father termed as my bedtime, he would remind me of this famous quote. It got so I hated when bedtime came. At the time, I had my doubts about the validity of this quote because if my father followed this quote as he encouraged me to do, why was he not healthy, wealthy and wise? At the time, I was in no position to question his wisdom. I was wise enough to know that the best part of wisdom was not to challenge the wisdom of my father. This has attributed to my length of life to date. Incidentally, I have carried this over into my married life. According to my father, if I simply obeyed Franklins advice I would have a life filled with health, wealth and wisdom. The three things absolutely needed in life to make a person happy. Or, so Franklin would lead us to believe. After what seems to be a lifetime of living, and living in as much harmony of these two aspects of life, I must say that there is very little truth to be said concerning good old Franklins saying. No matter how early I go Early to bed and early to rise hasnt really worked for me to bed or how early I get up, I do not seem to be any wealthier or healthier. Perhaps, and this is only a guess on my part because I am not as wise as old Benjamin Franklin, you had to do something when you got up that contributed or created your wealth. Just a suggestion from me. That is the way it is with most sayings. They sound good; you sound wise in quoting them; but after every saying is quoted, nothing seems to change. They just do not cover the whole spectrum. It is not that I have not given it the good old college try; it just does not work for me. This past week I had an occasion to think about this quote. I have tried keeping the early to bed and early to rise objective in full focus throughout my life. I am not up partying until the wee hours of the morning. At my age, my party time is early afternoon. I have made a concerted effort to get enough rest and just to make sure I have enough rest I indulge in an afternoon nap. I am not sure where this comes in Benjamin Franklins quote. Recently, I had cause to reflect upon the validity of Benjamin Franklins sage advice. My quarterly taxes were due, and you know what good old Uncle Sam thinks about being late on his payments. If confession is good for the soul (another famous quote), I need to confess that while I was writing this check to Uncle Sam I had some rather harsh thoughts about him in the process. There, I said it. During the same week, some other bills were due and none of them would take no for an answer. Again, I must confess, while writing these checks I was sputtering to myself quite a bit. As I looked at my checkbook, I knew that the wealthy component of Benjamin Franklins quote did not come in my direction. I was simply out of wealth. Not only that, but I recently spent about four weeks sick with bronchitis and pneumonia and spent about three weeks in bed. Not only was I early to bed, but I was glued to my bed. How does that fit into Franklins saying? The healthy aspect of that quote has not fallen in my direction either. If you want to know about the wise element, simply query the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Another old phrase says, three strikes and youre out. Well, according to the Franklin saying, I must concede that I am out. I am not wealthy, in many regards Im not healthy and for sure, Im not wise. It is my opinion that there is a lot more to life than wise old sayings from some old man from the past. Benjamin Franklin, for example, no doubt practiced early to bed and early to rise but in the end, he died. That does not sound too healthy to me. Of course, the best place for wisdom is the Bible. I like what the wisest man in the world said, Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths (Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV). I am not too sure about the healthy and the wealthy components, that is up for grabs, but I am convinced the wise part comes from the Lord. After all, the Bible teaches us that God is Omniscient. If God knows everything and I know God, I am in a good position. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

and his education at that point. After graduating from Woodstock Ken went on to Wentworth Institute in Boston Massachusetts where he completed his degree program in Building Construction. That was in 1943 during the Second World War. Naturally, after completing his education Uncle Sam called and he was drafted into the U.S. Army. Following extensive training, Ken was assigned to an anti-aircraft company. These men rode in half tracks that sported a variety of weapons designed to shoot down enemy aircraft. Because they were very mobile, they were utilized to protect field artillery positions; headquarters; and the flanks of fast moving tank and infantry units. Under the cover of darkness, just three weeks after DDay and with German aircraft overhead, Ken and his fellow soldiers drove their vehicle onto Utah Beach in Normandy, France. This was day one of his 281 days of combat duty. During his tour, he was assigned to Pattons Third Army in their race across France towards the German homeland. They drove through towns and villages with strange sounding names; through the heat of summer and the frigid temperatures of winter; on dust covered dirt roads or through marshes and farm fields; all the while being harassed by enemy planes and the heavy artillery of a determined enemy. In December of 1944 their unit was pushed back when the Germans made an all out counter attack through the Ardennes Forest. Later, it would be called the Battle of the Bulge but for those that went through it, it was just called Hell. The names of the towns have long been forgotten and grass and crops; trees and flowers now cover the bloodied ground where brave men sacrificed and died. In Kens soft eyes and warm gentle smile, there is no hint of the horrible scenes he witnessed; the recollection of casualties; the endurance of bitter cold or stifling heat. For those who went through the horrors of war, those things remain buried deep within the heart. After fierce fighting, Kens unit rolled into Ranolsburg, Germany. There, for T-5 Sergeant Ken Buck and D Company of the 398th, the War came to an end. To their credit, they had captured a total of 629 prisoners of war; engaged 122 hostile aircraft and damaged or destroyed fifty of them. In addition, the company had provided artillery and fire power for every major battle engaged in by Third Army. In June of 1946, home from the war, Ken attended a barn dance at the local Grange Hall in Lockemills, Maine. The Grange Hall was the local hot spot for most small farming communities back in the day and it was there that he met a young lady named Margaret. She ignited a spark in him; and he in her. On Sept. 10 of that same year, they were married. Ken took a job at a paper mill in Rumford, Maine, where he worked as a millwright for the next 40 years. He and Margaret have two sons; Brian and Dale, both of whom inherited their Dads love of construction. They are both still living in Maine and are expert carpenters. During their marriage, Ken has built three homes for Margaret. The first, a log cabin required 1,700 cinder blocks for the foundation. Margaret jokingly remembers the number because she was the one who carried them. The second home was built in Bethel, Maine, and their third was constructed at a lake called Worthley Pond. Ken took full advantage of his education and his talents in erecting these structures. Even today, his neighbors and friends call upon him for his expertise in woodworking and other building skills. Lets just say that he has never lacked for work Margaret was the youngest of 13 children in her family. Her education was received at the Gould Academy from K and that ability to deal with large numbers of children coupled with the top notch education served her well in later years. After her boys started school, Margaret took a position with a local phone company and worked for seven years as a telephone operator. Later she would move on to the local school district where she worked as a teachers aide and the librarian. When asked why they moved to Florida, Margaret recalled watching Ken leave for work in the wee hours of the morning or late at night. I remember looking out and seeing nothing but sheer ice on the road; the yard; everywhere. Fed up with the cold winters of the north, when Ken retired, he and Margaret moved to Silver Springs and lived there for 12 years. When that neighborhood became overrun with young couples and children, they decided it was time to move to a quieter place. While driving around looking for a new home, they found Cherrywood and bought one of the first homes in the development. The road wasnt even paved when we moved in recalls Margaret. It was quiet. After 12 years at Cherrywood, they moved to Dunnellon where they stayed for four years in a doublewide mobile home. Because they had lived in conventional homes before that, they werent happy there. Ironically, when they looked to return to Cherrywood, a home right across the street from their first house was on the market. They scooped it up and have lived here ever since. Both Margaret and Ken love the neighborhood and their many friends. Margaret is an accomplished painter who likes to work in acrylics because of the bold colors. She paints a variety of work including birds; landscapes and country scenes recalled from her days in Maine. Ken is a member of the Cherrywood Veterans Club and finds no shortage of projects to keep him busy, as was stated before. His neighbors and friends see that he has very little spare time. Hes an expert woodworker, Margaret brags on her husband. If he can please me with his work he can please anyone. Ken just smiled broadly as she spoke. After 66 years of marriage, she still loves to brag about him and he still loves to hear her loving words. Ken and Margaret share their home and their love with Meggie the dachshund. Thats pretty cool if you ask this reporter. Thank you for your service Ken and thank you both for living here.From Your ReporterIf you have any questions; comments; ideas for articles that you would like to see in this section of the Citizen please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

Theres no better way to spend your time on Saturday than by coming to the Cherrywood Craft Show. See you there! Veterans Club bowlingMonday is the day that our Veterans Bowl-a-Thon takes place at Galaxy Lanes in Ocala. Theres still time to support this fund raising effort for our Veterans Club as they support local charities; provide color guard services; keep our flags flying and do scores of more services for our veterans and the community. Every bowler has a pledge sheet so if you know some one on the bowling league, be sure to sign up for either a flat rate of $5 or $10 or for a rate per pin. If you pledge a penny a pin and your bowler rolls a score of 300 for their three games, you would pay $3. If you pledged 2 cents a pin, it would be $6.

He showed which appliances use the most electricity and how to cut back on energy usage while still remaining comfortable in the home. His tips included changing the filters in your home once a month; cleaning the coils of the refrigerator monthly and adding weather stripping to doors. Roy had many other ideas for saving money including efficient use of hot water heaters; air conditioning units; heating elements; window treatments and insulation suggestions. At the conclusion of his talk, Roy answered several questions from the audience giving details about everything from ice makers to freezer compartments. His visit was well received and he was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation by President Bill Mahar when he concluded. The Veterans Club opened its doors to the community for Roys visit so that many residents could gain knowledge and information about this important subject.

America may have talent but Cherrywood residents really do have talent. Yes, its free and Ive been assured, it is well worth the price of admission. Veterans Day Nov. 11 At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the guns of war fell silent. World War I had ended. The War to end all wars was over and the world breathed a collective sigh of relief. In jubilation the allied nations would declare Nov. 11 as Armistice Day; a day of National Celebration. Scant years later, history would teach us that WW I was in fact not the War to end all wars. Many more would follow it including the Second World War; Korea; Vietnam; Operation Iraqi Freedom; the War on Terror and others. In there wake a new meaning for Nov. 11 would be born. It would be renamed Veterans Day; a day set aside specifically to honor those who served our nation in uniform. On this coming Nov. 11 your Cherrywood Veterans Club proudly invites you to join them in honoring all our veterans; past and present. At 11 a.m. in front Roy Mitchell, left, and Bill Mahar. of the clubhouse our Color Guard will gather and our residents assemble. The flag of our nation and the banners of each of our services will be honored; a moment will be taken to pay homage to those who gave their all in our nations defense and we will salute those who served. If you would like to be a part of this time honored observance, please accept the invitation of the Cherrywood Veterans Club and plan to attend. Bring your family and friends for this special event. Our guest speaker will be Tom P Currie, Col. USAF (Retired). Colonel Currie is a graduate of the US Air Force Academy; served as a Test Pilot and later would command the 46th Test Group at Holloman Air Force Base. He has many other accolades to add to his biography but suffice it to say we are honored and privileged to have him here to speak to us. Following the service, there will be a picnic luncheon of hamburgers; hot dogs; all the trimmings; beverages and desserts supplied by our ladies. This is a great All-American celebration and we would urge everyone who would like to, to please come out and enjoy the day with us. While the service is free to all, luncheon tickets are $7 each. Contact Geri for your tickets or attend the Veterans Club meeting on Nov. 1 at 2 p.m.Veterans Club meeting open to publicOn Nov. 1, the Veterans Club meeting is again open to the public. Marion County Sheriffs Office Crime Prevention Bureau is going to give a presentation on how to protect yourself from ID Theft; fraud; and other crimes against seniors. This is too important a presentation to miss. The meeting begins promptly at 2 p.m. Other items to be discussed will be the Veterans Day observance scheduled for the 11th. Everyone can get their luncheon tickets for this event at the meeting. Opening the meeting is a way for our veterans to say Thank you to the community for its support and to show what your Veterans Club is doing in this community; in this county and the State.

A heartfelt thanks to all.Sheila Hockenbury Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature individuals and couples that have an interesting past; a promising future or who add to the quality of life of our community. This week we are proud to feature long time residents Margaret and Ken Buck. Ken was born on a farm near the small town of Milton Plantation, Maine. He attended grade school in a one-room school house that was about five miles from his home. In order to get to school he took a horse and buggy but as luck would have it, a river ran between his home and the school house. In the summer time, he had to have the carriage ferried across the river on a rope operated barge and in the winter, he used the sled to traverse the distance from home to school. In spite of that, he did complete his grade school education and went on to Woodstock High School in Bryant Pond Maine. No river came between him SEE CHERRYWOOD PAGE17 John M.

His tips included changing the filters in your home once a month; cleaning the coils of the refrigerator monthly and adding weather stripping to doors. Roy had many other ideas for saving money including efficient use of hot water heaters; air conditioning units; heating elements; window treatments and insulation suggestions. At the conclusion of his talk, Roy answered several questions from the audience giving details about everything from ice makers to freezer compartments.

Veterans Day Nov. 11 At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the guns of war fell silent. World War I had ended. The War to end all wars was over and the world breathed a collective sigh of relief. In jubilation the allied nations would declare Nov. 11 as Armistice Day; a day of National Celebration. Scant years later, history would teach us that WW I was in fact not the War to end all wars. Many more would follow it including the Second World War; Korea; Vietnam; Operation Iraqi Freedom; the War on Terror and others. In there wake a new meaning for Nov. 11 would be born. It would be renamed Veterans Day; a day set aside specifically to honor those who served our nation in uniform. On this coming Nov. 11 your Cherrywood Veterans Club proudly invites you to join them in honoring all our veterans; past and present. At 11 a.m. in front Roy Mitchell, left, and Bill Mahar. of the clubhouse our Color Guard will gather and our residents assemble. The flag of our nation and the banners of each of our services will be honored; a moment will be taken to pay homage to those who gave their all in our nations defense and we will salute those who served. If you would like to be a part of this time honored observance, please accept the invitation of the Cherrywood Veterans Club and plan to attend. Bring your family and friends for this special event. Our guest speaker will be Tom P Currie, Col. USAF (Retired). Colonel Currie is a graduate of the US Air Force Academy; served as a Test Pilot and later would command the 46th Test Group at Holloman Air Force Base. He has many other accolades to add to his biography but suffice it to say we are honored and privileged to have him here to speak to us. Following the service, there will be a picnic luncheon of hamburgers; hot dogs; all the trimmings; beverages and desserts supplied by our ladies. This is a great All-American celebration and we would urge everyone who would like to, to please come out and enjoy the day with us. While the service is free to all, luncheon tickets are $7 each. Contact Geri for your tickets or attend the Veterans Club meeting on Nov. 1 at 2 p.m.Veterans Club meeting open to publicOn Nov. 1, the Veterans Club meeting is again open to the public.

A heartfelt thanks to all.Sheila Hockenbury Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature individuals and couples that have an interesting past; a promising future or who add to the quality of life of our community. This week we are proud to feature long time residents Margaret and Ken Buck. Ken was born on a farm near the small town of Milton Plantation, Maine. He attended grade school in a one-room school house that was about five miles from his home. In order to get to school he took a horse and buggy but as luck would have it, a river ran between his home and the school house. In the summer time, he had to have the carriage ferried across the river on a rope operated barge and in the winter, he used the sled to traverse the distance from home to school. In spite of that, he did complete his grade school education and went on to Woodstock High School in Bryant Pond Maine. No river came between him SEE CHERRYWOOD PAGE17 John M.

and his education at that point. After graduating from Woodstock Ken went on to Wentworth Institute in Boston Massachusetts where he completed his degree program in Building Construction. That was in 1943 during the Second World War. Naturally, after completing his education Uncle Sam called and he was drafted into the U.S. Army. Following extensive training, Ken was assigned to an anti-aircraft company. These men rode in half tracks that sported a variety of weapons designed to shoot down enemy aircraft. Because they were very mobile, they were utilized to protect field artillery positions; headquarters; and the flanks of fast moving tank and infantry units. Under the cover of darkness, just three weeks after DDay and with German aircraft overhead, Ken and his fellow soldiers drove their vehicle onto Utah Beach in Normandy, France. This was day one of his 281 days of combat duty. During his tour, he was assigned to Pattons Third Army in their race across France towards the German homeland. They drove through towns and villages with strange sounding names; through the heat of summer and the frigid temperatures of winter; on dust covered dirt roads or through marshes and farm fields; all the while being harassed by enemy planes and the heavy artillery of a determined enemy. In December of 1944 their unit was pushed back when the Germans made an all out counter attack through the Ardennes Forest. Later, it would be called the Battle of the Bulge but for those that went through it, it was just called Hell. The names of the towns have long been forgotten and grass and crops; trees and flowers now cover the bloodied ground where brave men sacrificed and died. In Kens soft eyes and warm gentle smile, there is no hint of the horrible scenes he witnessed; the recollection of casualties; the endurance of bitter cold or stifling heat. For those who went through the horrors of war, those things remain buried deep within the heart. After fierce fighting, Kens unit rolled into Ranolsburg, Germany. There, for T-5 Sergeant Ken Buck and D Company of the 398th, the War came to an end. To their credit, they had captured a total of 629 prisoners of war; engaged 122 hostile aircraft and damaged or destroyed fifty of them. In addition, the company had provided artillery and fire power for every major battle engaged in by Third Army. In June of 1946, home from the war, Ken attended a barn dance at the local Grange Hall in Lockemills, Maine. The Grange Hall was the local hot spot for most small farming communities back in the day and it was there that he met a young lady named Margaret. She ignited a spark in him; and he in her. On Sept. 10 of that same year, they were married. Ken took a job at a paper mill in Rumford, Maine, where he worked as a millwright for the next 40 years. He and Margaret have two sons; Brian and Dale, both of whom inherited their Dads love of construction. They are both still living in Maine and are expert carpenters. During their marriage, Ken has built three homes for Margaret. The first, a log cabin required 1,700 cinder blocks for the foundation. Margaret jokingly remembers the number because she was the one who carried them. The second home was built in Bethel, Maine, and their third was constructed at a lake called Worthley Pond. Ken took full advantage of his education and his talents in erecting these structures. Even today, his neighbors and friends call upon him for his expertise in woodworking and other building skills. Lets just say that he has never lacked for work Margaret was the youngest of 13 children in her family. Her education was received at the Gould Academy from K and that ability to deal with large numbers of children coupled with the top notch education served her well in later years. After her boys started school, Margaret took a position with a local phone company and worked for seven years as a telephone operator. Later she would move on to the local school district where she worked as a teachers aide and the librarian. When asked why they moved to Florida, Margaret recalled watching Ken leave for work in the wee hours of the morning or late at night. I remember looking out and seeing nothing but sheer ice on the road; the yard; everywhere. Fed up with the cold winters of the north, when Ken retired, he and Margaret moved to Silver Springs and lived there for 12 years. When that neighborhood became overrun with young couples and children, they decided it was time to move to a quieter place. While driving around looking for a new home, they found Cherrywood and bought one of the first homes in the development. The road wasnt even paved when we moved in recalls Margaret. It was quiet. After 12 years at Cherrywood, they moved to Dunnellon where they stayed for four years in a doublewide mobile home. Because they had lived in conventional homes before that, they werent happy there. Ironically, when they looked to return to Cherrywood, a home right across the street from their first house was on the market. They scooped it up and have lived here ever since. Both Margaret and Ken love the neighborhood and their many friends. Margaret is an accomplished painter who likes to work in acrylics because of the bold colors. She paints a variety of work including birds; landscapes and country scenes recalled from her days in Maine. Ken is a member of the Cherrywood Veterans Club and finds no shortage of projects to keep him busy, as was stated before. His neighbors and friends see that he has very little spare time. Hes an expert woodworker, Margaret brags on her husband. If he can please me with his work he can please anyone. Ken just smiled broadly as she spoke. After 66 years of marriage, she still loves to brag about him and he still loves to hear her loving words. Ken and Margaret share their home and their love with Meggie the dachshund. Thats pretty cool if you ask this reporter. Thank you for your service Ken and thank you both for living here.From Your ReporterIf you have any questions; comments; ideas for articles that you would like to see in this section of the Citizen please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

This most important decision about the next four years should be based on expected performance and what is best for the United States of America. Fred Pulis Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 M y father was not what you would call a literate person. Apart from the Bible, he did not read much of anything else on a regular basis. I can remember as a young person him quoting a great American patriot, Benjamin Franklin. The only quote he knew of this man was, Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. For a long time I thought he was making it up and then one day, I happened to run across a book in the library about Benjamin Franklin and, there it was. Benjamin actually did say that. I had to give my father that one. It seems that every time it got close to what my father termed as my bedtime, he would remind me of this famous quote. It got so I hated when bedtime came. At the time, I had my doubts about the validity of this quote because if my father followed this quote as he encouraged me to do, why was he not healthy, wealthy and wise? At the time, I was in no position to question his wisdom. I was wise enough to know that the best part of wisdom was not to challenge the wisdom of my father. This has attributed to my length of life to date. Incidentally, I have carried this over into my married life. According to my father, if I simply obeyed Franklins advice I would have a life filled with health, wealth and wisdom. The three things absolutely needed in life to make a person happy. Or, so Franklin would lead us to believe. After what seems to be a lifetime of living, and living in as much harmony of these two aspects of life, I must say that there is very little truth to be said concerning good old Franklins saying. No matter how early I go Early to bed and early to rise hasnt really worked for me to bed or how early I get up, I do not seem to be any wealthier or healthier. Perhaps, and this is only a guess on my part because I am not as wise as old Benjamin Franklin, you had to do something when you got up that contributed or created your wealth. Just a suggestion from me. That is the way it is with most sayings. They sound good; you sound wise in quoting them; but after every saying is quoted, nothing seems to change. They just do not cover the whole spectrum. It is not that I have not given it the good old college try; it just does not work for me. This past week I had an occasion to think about this quote. I have tried keeping the early to bed and early to rise objective in full focus throughout my life. I am not up partying until the wee hours of the morning. At my age, my party time is early afternoon. I have made a concerted effort to get enough rest and just to make sure I have enough rest I indulge in an afternoon nap. I am not sure where this comes in Benjamin Franklins quote. Recently, I had cause to reflect upon the validity of Benjamin Franklins sage advice. My quarterly taxes were due, and you know what good old Uncle Sam thinks about being late on his payments. If confession is good for the soul (another famous quote), I need to confess that while I was writing this check to Uncle Sam I had some rather harsh thoughts about him in the process. There, I said it. During the same week, some other bills were due and none of them would take no for an answer. Again, I must confess, while writing these checks I was sputtering to myself quite a bit. As I looked at my checkbook, I knew that the wealthy component of Benjamin Franklins quote did not come in my direction. I was simply out of wealth. Not only that, but I recently spent about four weeks sick with bronchitis and pneumonia and spent about three weeks in bed. Not only was I early to bed, but I was glued to my bed. How does that fit into Franklins saying? The healthy aspect of that quote has not fallen in my direction either. If you want to know about the wise element, simply query the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Another old phrase says, three strikes and youre out. Well, according to the Franklin saying, I must concede that I am out. I am not wealthy, in many regards Im not healthy and for sure, Im not wise. It is my opinion that there is a lot more to life than wise old sayings from some old man from the past. Benjamin Franklin, for example, no doubt practiced early to bed and early to rise but in the end, he died. That does not sound too healthy to me. Of course, the best place for wisdom is the Bible. I like what the wisest man in the world said, Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths (Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV). I am not too sure about the healthy and the wealthy components, that is up for grabs, but I am convinced the wise part comes from the Lord. After all, the Bible teaches us that God is Omniscient. If God knows everything and I know God, I am in a good position. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Royal Oaks Mens GolfThe annual Ryder Cup Tournament was played over three days, Oct. 1, 3, and concluded on the 5th. There were 44 participants split into two teams, the USA and the Europeans. The first day was better ball of two team members from each side, match play. At the end of the day the USA led by a score of 7 to 4. On the second day the game was alternate shot, and again the USA prevailed by a score of 7 1/2 to 3 1/2. Thus, going into the singles matches on Friday the USA had a dominant lead of 14 1/2 to 7 1/2. Sound familiar to the real Ryder Cup? Friday saw the Europeans come out firing, winning 7 out of the first 8 matches. However, the USA rallied enough to make the final score for the day a win for the Europeans by 13 to 9. The overall score for the three days ended with a victory for the USA by a score of 23 1/2 to 20 1/2. All agreed it was an excellent tourney, and thanks go to Virgil Hein and Bill Ellin for setting up the teams and running the games. As usual the members enjoyed a fine lunch provided by the Royal Oaks Dining while the final results were tabulated. Already were looking forward to the next tournament, now that the fall season has arrived and the weather is somewhat cooler.Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn Oct. 3. we played low putts.

I certainly have. So I did what I usually do when I have questions about recycling, I contacted Jim Waddell. He told me Steve Routte, our ORHA president, is the current recycle coordinator. However, Jim sent me a great explanation that has clarified things for me. I hope it will help you too. The most important thing to remember is that the Marion County program you have been reading about does not apply to Oak Run! Nothing here has changed because our Friday, October 12, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, October 12, 2012 www.smcitizen.com doctors have stated they will either cut back or stop taking Medicare patients (check with your own doctor), there will be a board, appointed by the president, that will have more power over our future health care than Obama admitted in the debate (check it out yourself), there are numerous hidden taxes that will hurt all of us, not just the very wealthy. Obama care must be repealed! Economically, where is the uproar over the $16 trillion debt we are passing down to our children? If Obama is re-elected the debt will probably reach $20 trillion and our country will face bankruptcy, destroying America as we know it. How can we even consider doing this to our children and grandchildren? Never in our history has a president been reelected with such a dismal four-year record. Never has there been a time when we face having two such different visions for Americas future. If you love America, and believe we are the greatest country in the world, if you believe in God, our creator, and you want his blessings to continue, there is no way you can vote for a present day Democrat. Think before you vote! Wayne Rackley Ocala Are we at war? Being a retiree I have been around the block a few times and have seen American administrations react differently during times of war. Our policies have always been to support our president no matter how we feel individually. We are a nation of laws served down by our constitution and supported by our government with the backing of our military. It seems that recently a number of politicians have been speaking against our government during this period of time while we are at war. For those of you who feel that we are not at war I ask you to read the newspapers or watch the news on TV, other than the Fox news station to get the truth. There are members of congress campaigning for re-election who speak against our president with hatred in their voices and with actions against our country. Governor Romney is campaigning against President Obama and speaking against every action we are taking in the Mideast where citizens of these countries are attacking American interests on a daily basis. If the Mideast is not at war with us, then who is attacking our embassies and killing our government officials. Maybe I am old fashioned but I feel strongly that you should not speak against or criticize our president during a time of war. Jerry Segovis Ocala One Nation Under God One Nation Under God? You have got to be kidding! Which God? The God that I believe in is not the god of this world. The God that I believe in is not a god of hate but a god of love. He is God who wrote the Bible. And yes, if men had written the Bible they wouldnt have exposed the sings of their heroes like Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, David, Peter and others. People of all ages and generations are to learn from the mistakes of those Bible characters. God hates sin but loves sinners or none of us would have any hope. And the reason we have hope is because the only perfect human being that ever lived and was able to please God by dying for all sin was Jesus Christ. His life was to be an example for all of us. Because he was God in the flesh, he knew how to treat people; he could separate sin from the sinner. He loved prostitutes but hated their sin (John 4); he could forgive murdering thieves (Luke 23), like politicians and abortionists. God can even forgive homosexuals and change their heart and thinking if they will ask for his forgiveness (Romans 2, 1 John 1). All of us need to realize that having attitudes that reflect hatred toward other people rather than hatred of their sinful practices is not going to attract the unbelievers to the God of the Bible and the one and only God our forefathers worshiped when they founded America. God can bless the USWA if we return to him and value life and morality more than economics. Rev. T. William Fortune Marion Oaks Something is wrongPresident Obama says his proposed agenda will work if the rich are taxed more and the middle class is strengthened. Lets see, the top 5 percent of income earners already pay 60 percent of the nations income taxes. But Obama proposes to tax them even more. He also plans too strengthen the middle class ... you know, the middle class hes been weakening for the past four years. Okay, his tax the rich scheme would generate an additional $65 billion in 2013. But, hell spend $4 billion a day (hes already spending $3.5 billion a day ... the highest ever). The additional $65 billion in tax revenues will last about 16 days. Hmmmm! Now one would hope that a portion of the increased tax would be used to reduce our debt which is over $16 trillion. Nope! Instead, Obamas excessive spending would increase the debt to $17.5 trillion in 2013. So, wheres the money to LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 fund Obamas proposed agenda coming from? Well, he can continue borrowing money ... even though our debt is already $16 trillion, and growing ... until America eventually defaults. How about drastically reducing spending? No, then the people receiving the government entitlements they arent entitled to wouldnt receive those entitlements. That would be contrary to Obamas agenda. He hasnt proposed increasing taxes on the middle class yet! Wait! Now theres a possibility ... but what about that strengthening thing? Well, Im totally confused ... as probably are most citizens. Its quite obvious that something is drastically wrong with Obamas proposed agenda. Joe OHara Ocala Remember in NovemberThis November when Americans vote for the future president of the United States, it is important that the citizens consider the best person for doing what is best for this country. They must keep that in mind and not blind Party loyalty, ideological zealotry, or just purely personal interest. The country needs an informed electorate that votes on substance and not style. All voters in the upcoming election must Remember in November the following: Unresolved high unemployment, slow economic growth, loss of home value, rise in bankruptcy and foreclosure rates; Remember in November the high costs of Obama Care and how it was PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE10 Way Off Broadway ready to present Squad Room Blues O AK RUN C W Carol AnnWheeler PLEASESEEOAK RUN PAGE24 0 0 0 C V N T Call for Thanksgiving & Christmas Rates IP Resort $159 pp/dbl Beau Rivage $175 pp/dbl SOT #36723 Biloxi Ca$ino Tours 3 Nights 10/29 11/05 11/20 11/26 12/10 12/23 Chance to win $50 CASH ONE FREE TRIP GIVEN AWAY EACH MONTH 352-840-0333 www.LauraKaneTravel.com Includes $55 in freeplay & two breakfast vouchers Ask about the 5 for $50 deal Tour Escort Janet Stefan Deluxe motor coach/3 nts. hotel Games played on the bus Refreshments served on bus Ocalas Only 4-Star Ocalas Only 4-Star Accommodations Accommodations for Your Pet for Your Pet Tour our unique Tour our unique facility and you facility and you be the judge! be the judge! 352-861-4566 352-861-4566 B o a r d i n g G r o o m i n g Boarding Grooming 10411 SW 105th Street Ocala 10411 SW 105th Street Ocala www.palmettokennels.com www.palmettokennels.com 000CS13 Kennel Pet Sitting Kennel Grooming Pet Sitting L o o k f o r u s L o o k f o r u s Look for us o n F a c e b o o k o n F a c e b o o k on Facebook 000CUML 6933 SW 179 Ave. Rd. 15 miles West of I-75 on SR 40 in Dunnellon (352) 522-0309 www.juliettefalls.com Must present coupon.

Gordon Herrick was the M.C. of the evening, and Nancy Scott led the invocation. The entertainment lineup couldnt be beat. Songs, some serious and some not, were performed by Rich and Gail Sanborn, Charlie Mock, Jerry Rae King with Randy VanZalkenburgh and accompanied by Ardith Thomas, who also sang with Jackie Santone, Mary Ann Hall, Gloria Wilberg accompanied by Marta Bruenn, George Taragna, Sharon Talbert accompanied by John Kalivoda; a poem by Joan Ritter with her animals; and a medley by the Kitchen Kookies Band, whose members are Joan Dopler, leader; Nadine Perry, keyboard; Mary Jo Eggers, Merry Anne Krell, Barbara Litchert, John Metzger, Noreen Metzger, Martha Nierenberg, Shirley Pohlers, Bob Schmidt, Donna Schmidt, Shirley Seckman, Jan Sekurski and Kaz Sekurski. As with any event here in Marion Landing, it couldnt have been done without the help of many dedicated volunteers, and wed like to thank them for their efforts: sound, Art Dopler; videotaping, John Metzger; programs, Gloria Wilberg; and lattice construction, Bill Jackson.

Friday, October 12, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, October 12, 2012 T he Marion County sheriffs election is so far up in the air that its practically out of sight. Heres a summary as we see it: Candidate Dan Kuhn, who has been running for the office pretty much since Sheriff Ed Dean announced he would not seek reelection, withdrew from the race last week. Kuhn had apparently had an affair with a principal at the school where his wife teaches, and that principal decided that six weeks before the election would be a good time to make things public. That, of course, has led to a dialog among conspiracy theorists about the timing. Kuhn won the primary over Chris Blair, a former deputy and detective, and was scheduled to face Constitution Party representative Bernie DeCastro in the general election.. People were talking about writing in the name of Blair, now that Kuhn has withdrawn, but a recent story said that since he lost the primary, he couldnt be a write-in candidate. However, the Republican Party was to meet this week to pick someone to run in Kuhns place, and one of the leading names was Blair. So apparently its OK for him to run again that way, but not be written in. That seems a little strange. He should either be entitled to run again, or not. What if Blair runs again, and loses? He could become one of the first to ever lose twice in the same election. One of the criteria for a new candidate has been listed as the fact that he must be a Republican. Thats too bad. One of the best solutions would be to go to Dean and ask him to run again. Now we have another name thrown in, that of former sheriff Don Moreland. If he can straighten out this mess, more power to him. Another problem is that the ballots have already been printed. So whoever is chosen by the Republicans will not be on the ballot, but a vote for Dan Kuhn will be considered a vote for the new candidate. And what of those who still wish to vote for Kuhn? Since now their vote for Kuhn will be counted as a vote for the new candidate, can they write in Kuhns name? In that case, Kuhn will be running against himself. That could make for a fun night of counting at the elections office. How about those who have already submitted a ballot by mail, and thought they were voting for Dan Kuhn? Isnt that tantamount to election fraud, telling people who voted for Kuhn that their vote will be counted for someone else? And lets face it, there will be some who wont get the word that theres a new candidate, and their vote may go to someone they never heard of. Although Im on record as opposing early voting, I have endorsed it this year because of the ballot complicated by 11 amendments. Now Im rethinking that. At least I want to make sure who Im voting for. This year, in Marion County, that may not be easy to determine. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

T oday we take a look at two additional amendments that will be on the ballot on Nov. 6. Amendment 5 is titled simply, State courts. Thats a little misleading. Its a power grab by the Legislature to take more control over the Supreme Court. We are supposed to have three separate branches of government, judicial, legislative and executive. They are supposed to act independently. Evidently some legislators dont like that. They want to run everything in state government, so the Legislature put this on the ballot. Simply, it deserves a no vote. Then theres Amendment 6, sure to stir passions in a lot of people. The title is Prohibition of public funding of abortions; construction of abortion rights. The description provided to us says, Prohibits public fund expenditures for any abortion or for any health benefits coverage that includes coverage for abortion, but does not apply when the expenditure is required by federal law or where womans life is in danger or in case of rape or incest. Prohibits the use of Floridas express existing constitutional privacy clause by the courts in defending abortion rights. Even pro-life backers would have to concede that this is a toothless amendment. Its more or less a send a message amendment that will have no practical application, especially since almost all abortion rights cases are ultimately decided in federal courts. The big thing to us is that it would not allow challenges to partental notification laws. Sounds good, but sure to bring a costly court fight. It would be much more beneficial to pro-life forces to unite at the ballot box and make sure they are electing officials who feel the same way they do. Then they might have a chance of overturning federal decisions that go against the pro-life movement. So if you want to send a message, vote yes, as long as you dont complain later that the fight has become too costly. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Courts and abortion on the ballot Sheriffs election mess questions Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Government does not create jobs or wealth Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED T he seemingly endless 2012 presidential campaigns have been as interesting as watching chefs tenderizing meat with serrated mallets. Issues have been pulverized into BS (baloney stuffing). Some voters have undoubtedly gone numb. Others may hope voting early will make the campaign noise go away. The term permanent campaign was coined by pollster Pat Caddell, who advised Jimmy Carter to begin his presidency by becoming a full-time, every-day salesman for re-election, including weekends, holidays, and vacations. Mr. Carter wasnt much of a salesman. He won the presidency with a humble one-sentence campaign: Hi. Im Jimmy Carter, and Im running for President. President Obama has been running for re-election since the moment he sat down in the oval office, picked up the phone and scheduled several months of trips across the country and around the world. Campaigning is what our Cheerleader in Chief does best. Identities have been the focus of the Republican side of the current campaign for the White House. Twelve aspirants appeared and disappeared during the primaries parade. They were mutually and embarrassingly destructive during their on stage quiz shows. The buffoonery of the Republican nomination process suggests holding the 2016 candidate selection in a soundproof, camera-free, smoke-filled back room. Before Republican advisers had determined which persona their widely accomplished nominee should emphasize, the Obama campaign had already decided to portray Mitt Romney as a greedy captive of big business. His accomplishments as governor of Massachusetts and as the successful turn-around manager of the failing 2002 Olympics have been denigrated as irrelevant to leading the nation. In return Republicans have depicted Mr. Obama as a standard model, tax and spend, big-government Democrat, whose primary interest is enlargement of the welfare state, and more White House control of national and state priorities. Despite occasional glimpses, neither presidential candidate has been specific enough to give voters a clear picture of what theyll be buying when they mark their ballots. Many voters will leave the polls wondering whether they made the right decision for the nation and their families. Recent presidents and congresses have forgotten conveniently where government money comes from. Perhaps they dont give a damn. Two consecutive administrations have played the credit card game, borrowing recklessly for their own political purposes, while reassuring the voters that deficits dont matter. The mutton heads who ran Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Italy into financial chaos still believe they can put their financial train back on track by borrowing and spending more money. The future of our nation depends on a robust recovery of our economy. Since the end of the great depression (1929-1941) our economy has been the source of our domestic prosperity and global prominence. National defense, national debt, entitlements, pensions, the banking system, the value of money and most other important concerns are dependent on one reliable source of wealth creation. Its the economy .. Palm Cay challengeThe Palm Cay community is having a food drive on Saturday, Nov. 3, to help fill the pantries at Interfaith Emergency Services. We would like to challenge other communities in this area not only to participate on their own but also to try to exceed the Palm Cay donation. This is an excellent opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many people here in Marion County. I hope that you will join us in this effort. Russ Hoyt Palm CayTwisting the truthI want to think that the vast majority of us do not fall for the medias twist and Obama TV ads that state Romney was talking about working people and/or retirees as part of the 47 percent who will not vote for him under any circumstances. If you do, we are in trouble for you are believing a lie, so listen carefully and accept the truth! He was honestly talking about the takers, who live off others tax money, and how they would not vote for him even if he could walk on water. This does not include those of us on Social Security or other programs where we paid into the program or received benefits as part of our compensation. He was not talking about working people who take individual responsibility for themselves and their families. Whether we want to accept it or not, we have allowed a large segment of society, easily over 40 percent, to work the system so they can live as well or better than the average middle class worker. Do some math homework, add welfare payments, free child care, section 8 housing allowance, free medical care, and food stamps to the numerous other giveaway programs we currently have in place. How can Romney or any candidate that promises to cut back on such programs, win their vote? The facts are that 99 percent of these takers will vote for Democrats. Who do you want to identify with? I also cant believe the number of retirees who believe Obama care is good for us.

Perhaps you already belong to an animal related club or organization in your community. It would be a great help to both our groups if at least one member could come to our meetings and act as a liaison between our organizations. This would help us exchange information regarding animal welfare, open up fostering opportunities for animals in need, and better serve the animals of Marion and surrounding counties. But you dont need to belong to another animal welfare group to join the SPCA. If youve always had a love of animals and want to channel that commitment into volunteering for a worthy cause, weve made it easier to do just that. Weve moved our meeting room to the Bank of the Ozarks in Friendship Center by Winn Dixie on State Road 200 so that is convenient for anyone to get to. We still meet on the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 1 p.m. For this month, the meeting date is Thursday, Oct. 18. While it is advantageous to come to our meetings, we know that you may have scheduling conflicts that make it impossible to attend. That does not have to preclude you from joining our organization. We have volunteering opportunities at different times of the day and week that you can fit in when you can. So please call us at 352-362-0985 if you would like to join or hear more about our activities even though you cant attend the meetings. Adoption NewsWe have important news for all cat lovers, especially those looking to adopt. We need to place two adult cats and three kittens pronto, because their foster caregiver will be relocating and cannot take them. The cats shown here, Kitten, a 5-year old tortoise female and Pumpkin, a 9year old black female, have been in foster care for a year waiting for their chance at a forever home. During this time they have been well loved, cared for, and socialized so that they will be great companions when they get to your home. Kitten and Pumpkin have been waiting so long if youve been thinking about getting an adult cat, please give Arlene a call at 352-875-9761 to check them out before proceeding any further. For those of you who are partial to kittens, she has two males and one female black and white: Coco, Cody and Panda. Pretty Panda is pictured here. Shes only 9 months old and ready to show you all the cute things shes learned in foster care. Coco and Cody are six months old and well show you their picture next month if theyre still available. A person from a local community needs your help. Due to an illness, she can no longer care for her cats. At 14 years old, theyre too old to be placed in a cage in a shelter even though theyre in great health, so they need to go to a new home. The male is Wilbur, a 13-pound long hair, and the female is Wilma, a little bitty 8pound short hair. Both are loving and affectionate. We can put their picture in next month if theyre still available. If you can help out a neighbor, please call Sharyn at 305-229-3708 to meet these cuties. We have a dog of the month from Animal Services named Nixon to tell you about. An unimpeachable source tells us that this little cutie could make someone from very happy. Hes one of those tiny guys at 6.8 pounds where every ounce really counts. Since hes already 3 years old, he wont get much bigger, but perhaps a few choice treats can have him tip the scales at 7 robust pounds in no time. We think you can tell that he has the adorable face of a terrier mix and a personality to match. He loves to snuggle and give kisses and who doesnt like that? To make things easier, he knows how to walk on a leash and gets along well with other animals. So he can be an only or a dog or cat brother how versatile. Before hes scooped up, please call Animal services at 352-6718700 and reference ID A082197. Or you can visit the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St., off Baseline Road. Adoption costs $40 which includes the spay/neuter fee, county licenses, vaccinations and microchip. Feisty Acres needs volunteersFeisty Acres, a dedicated cat and kitten sanctuary just north of here in Williston, is in desperate need of volunteers and donations. They especially need volunteers for hands on work around the facility. If you love cat rescue, and want to offer your services, please call Cheryl at 352804-4421 for more details. For much needed donations, their mailing address is Feisty Acres, P .O. Box 693, Williston FL 32696. All the cat rescue groups are filled to the brim with cats and can barely take any more in. It takes time for the countys relatively new Trap Neuter Release program to work its magic. Its also up to cat and kitten owners to responsibly spay/neuter your pet early so that they dont add to the overpopulation and put a further strain on these groups who work so hard with few resources. Veterinary newsWe have news about a new vet clinic that recently opened its doors nearby. A Family Veterinarian, at 7466 S.W. 60th Ave. in Jasmine Plaza off State Road 200, is a full service vet practice that treats dogs, cats, avians and exotics. The clinic is lead by Dr. Ed, formerly of the Banfield Pet Hospital in PetSmart, where some of you may know him from. What makes this practice different is that they are open on Saturdays and Sundays. However, they are closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You can call them at 352-671-9550 for an appointment or to check out the facility to see if it fits your needs. We want to remind everyone that a new afterhours veterinary emergency clinic opened up near the Paddock Mall. The clinic is called the University of Florida Pet Emergency Treatment Services at 3200 S.W. 27th Ave. The clinic has a green roof and a small sign on the side of the building. It is located between Palm Gardens and Qwick Check/The Vines Hospital. Anyone with a pet should take a dry run during the day to check it out so you dont get lost if you need their services in the middle of the night. The emergency clinic is open when most vets not: 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. Monday through Friday and 24 hour weekend and holiday service. The phone number is 352-512-0886 and the website is pets.vethospitals.ufl.edu Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

Friday, October 12, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, October 12, 2012 www.smcitizen.com AR IE S ( March 21 to April 19) You might feel compelled to get involved on the right side of a seemingly unfair fight. But appearances can be deceptive. Get the facts before going forth into the fray. TA U R U S ( April 20 to May 20) Bullying others into agreeing with your position could cause resentment. Instead, persuade them to join you by making your case on a logical pointby-point basis. GE M INI ( May 21 to June 20) Resist pushing for a workplace decision you might feel is long overdue. Your impatience could backfire. Meanwhile, focus on that still-unsettled personal situation. CA N C E R ( June 21 to July 22) Your aspects favor doing something different. You might decide to redecorate your home, or take a trip somewhere youve never been, or even change your hairstyle. LE O ( July 23 to Aug 22) You might want to take a break from your busy schedule to restore your energy levels. Use this lesshectic time to also reassess your plans and make needed changes. VI R G O ( Aug 23 to Sept 22) What you like to think of as determination might be seen by others as nothing more than stubbornness. Try to be more flexible if you hope to get things resolved. LIB RA ( Sept 23 to Oct 22) Watch that you dont unwittingly reveal work-related information to the wrong person. Best to say nothing until you get official clearance to open up. SCORP I O ( Oct 23 to N ov 21) With things settling down at work or at home, you can now take on a new challenge without fear of distraction. Be open to helpful suggestions from colleagues. SA GI TTAR IU S (N ov 22 to D ec 21) Your creativity can help resolve an emotional situation that might otherwise get out of hand. Continue to be your usual caring, sensitive self. CAPR I COR N (D ec 22 to Jan 19) You could impress a lot of influential people with the way you untangle a few knotty problems. Meanwhile, a colleague is set to share some welcome news. A QU AR IU S ( Jan 20 to Feb 18) Aspects favor recharging your social life and meeting new people. Its also a good time to renew friendships that might be stagnating due to neglect on both sides. P I SC E S ( Feb 19 to March 20) Congratulations. Your talent for working out a highly technical problem earns you well-deserved praise. The weekend could bring news about a friend or relative.

We can take our recyclables to our recycle center here in Oak Run off the service road. These recyclables are picked up by Trade Mark Recycle Inc. We still must separate newspapers, tearable papers, phone books and aluminum cans. Trade Mark weighs each of these separate items and pays ORHA a per pound rate. ORHA receives from $200-300 per month. No plastic bottles, glass, cardboard or metal cans are accepted. If you wish to recycle these materials you must use a Marion County convenience centers like the one at the Highlands off County Road 484. They take mixtures of acceptable recyclables as you have been reading, but garbage must still put into a separate bin The mixed recyclables are made up of what was formerly placed in separate bins but is now deposited in one bin. These items are still only newspapers, tearable papers, card board, phone books, aluminum cans, metal cans (food, pet food, coffee, etc) and glass of all colors. These are transported to a facility where they go through various sorting steps which use magnets, screens and humans to separate these items. They do not accept plastic bags or shredded paper, both of which clog up the sorting mechanism. These items must be put in with the garbage. No garbage, which is primarily organic food stuffs and certain containers that are covered by wax or paraffin (like milk containers, etc), is to be put with the recyclables I hope this explanation has been helpful to you. Remember that nothing has changed in Oak Run. The only way you can recycle in Oak Run is to use the ORHA sponsored recycle bins on the service road, and material must be separated as it always has. If you wish to recycle with acceptable recyclables mixed together, you must go to a Marion County recycling facility, and non recyclables must be disposed of separately. OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 then a couple pieces of bacon. I called 911 and reported what happened. They said, Of course, were having meatier showers. Life is like a doughnut; youre either in the dough or in the hole. As I stood in line screaming in terror while the cashier handed me two quarters, one dime and a nickel, I was hit with the sad realization that I was afraid of change. He is as broke and as frustrated as a pickpocket in a nudist colony. A gent from Glasgow exclaimed in frustration: I just washed my kilt, and I cant do a fling with it.Worthy causeA driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway when a man knocked on his window. The driver asked, Whats going on? Terrorists kidnapped Congress and are asking for a $100 million dollar ransom. Otherwise, they are going to douse them all in gasoline and set them on fire. We are going from car to car, taking up a collection. How much is everyone giving, on average? the driver asked. The man replied, About a gallon. Keep calmIn the supermarket, a woman was pushing a cart that contained a screaming, bellowing baby. The lady kept repeating softly, Dont get excited, Sally. Dont scream, Sally. Dont yell, Sally. Keep calm, Sally. A man standing next to her said, You certainly are to be commended for trying to soothe your daughter Sally. The lady looked at him and said, Sir, Im Sally.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advised that any patients known or suspected to have received back or joint injections with the suspect lots of New England Compounding Center methylprednisolone acetate since May 21, may be at risk for infection. If they show symptoms, these patients should be evaluated immediately by their health care professional and monitored or treated as necessary. Patients without symptoms should be evaluated by their health care professionals. Although fungal meningitis that is caused by the contaminated medicine cannot be transmitted from person to person, more cases could come to light. Infected patients have presented with symptoms as long as four weeks following their injection with the contaminated medicine. Symptoms may include fever, new or worsening headache, nausea, or new symptoms consistent with a stroke, such as weakness on one side of the body and slurred speech. Some of these patients symptoms were very mild in nature. If individuals are experiencing any of these and have had an injection at the Florida Pain Clinic, Marion Pain Management Center or the Surgery Center of Ocala since May 21, they should contact their health care provider. On Sept. 21, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was notified by the Tennessee Department of Health of a patient with the onset of meningitis approximately 19 days following epidural steroid injection at a Tennessee ambulatory surgical center. All initial cultures of cerebrospinal fluid and blood were negative; subsequently the patient had Aspergillus fumigatus isolated from the fluid by fungal culture. On Sept. 28, investigators identified a case outside of Tennessee, possibly indicating contamination of a widely-distributed medication.

Friday, October 12, 2012 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 2 ~ Friday, October 12, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Breathing new life into a well-known Civil War battleCAIN AT GETTYSBURG By Ralph Peters Readers may raise the questionwhy another book on the Battle of Gettysburg when 6,000 are still in print. The answer is that Ralph Peters is a consummate story teller and the subject remains a worthy one. Cain at Gettysburg differs from Michael Shaaras magnificent if somewhat romantic The Killer Angels in its grittiness and its you-are-there reality. A work of fiction but true to historical facts, it serves up the very soul of battle. The three-day blood fest in July 1863 outside the town of Gettysburg took a staggering toll of American lives. Casualties in the 26th North Carolina Infantry Regiment alone were higher than any other regiment on either side; 709 Confederate soldiers fell killed or wounded out of 8,000. What precisely happened during those tense, dramatic, lethal hours would become the ongoing subject of speculation, assertion and counter assertion for years. As a result of the battle, reputations would be made or destroyed. Most interesting is the light Peters shines on four principals General Robert E. Lee, General George G. Meade, General James Longstreet and General Daniel Sickles. Attempting to explain Lees ill-advised frontal attack on a well-positioned Union army across miles of open field, he creates a possible conversation when Longstreet tries to dissuade Lee from ordering the attack: Its my opinion that no fifteen thousand men ever arrayed for battle can take that position. This wouldnt be an attack, but a useless sacrifice. Lee responds, The enemy is there and I am going to strike him. In his research, Peters found that at that time Lee suffered from serous intestinal problems; he felt betrayed and hurt by Jeb Stuarts failure to appear with invaluable scouting information. Stuart had been like a son to Lee. Then Lee also found Meade an unworthy adversary and of course, he was somewhat blindsided by a sense of honor above all in attacking instead of waiting to be attacked. For his part Meade was stunned to find himself commander of the Union Army of the Potomac, a position he had not sought. Immediately, his peers became his subordinates in an uneasy relationship. Still, he persevered to victory but was ultimately maligned even so. One of his maligners was the despicable Sickles, a political general hoping battlefield success would propel him to the White House. But in disobeying orders at Gettysburg he allowed the Rebels to overrun his opposition. This superb narrative breathes new life into a well-known battle. B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington S everal months ago the political ads started along with those bothersome telephone calls. We got a respite after the primary elections; but now theyre back the never-ending TV ads and the annoying telephone calls, most of which come at dinnertime. Makes you want to scream. Todays the day! Its the International Moment of Frustration Scream Day. Go ahead, scream! To help, Pun Alley has some screaming stories for you. Cant boot correctlyIn Vermont during the winter a teacher was helping one of her kindergarten students to put on his boots. He asked for help and she could see why. With her pulling and him pushing, the boots still didnt want to go on. When the second boot was on, she had worked up a sweat. She almost whimpered when the little boy said, Teacher, theyre on the wrong feet. She looked and sure enough, they were. It wasnt any easier pulling the boots off than it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the boots back on, this time on the right feet. He then announced, These arent my boots. She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream, Why didnt you say so? like she wanted to. Once again she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off. He then said, Theyre my brothers boots. My Mom made me wear them. She didnt know if she should laugh or cry. She mustered up the grace to wrestle the boots on his feet again. She said, Now, where are your mittens? He said, I stuffed them in the toes of my boots. Screaming lift After the passengers on a commercial airliner were seated, the pilot and copilot began walking up to the cockpit. Both appeared to be blind. The pilot was using a white cane, bumping into passengers, and the copilot had a guide dog. Both had their eyes covered with huge sunglasses. At first the passengers thought it was a practical joke. However, when the engines started and the airplane moved erratically towards the runway, the passengers had a lot of doubt. When the airplane accelerated rapidly people began panicking. As the plane got closer to the end of the runway, the voices became hysterical. Finally, when the airplane had less than 20 feet of runway left, everyone screamed at once, and at the very last moment the airplane lifted off and was airborne. Up in the cockpit, the copilot breathed a sigh of relief and turned to the pilot, You know, one of these days the passengers arent going to scream, and were gonna get killed! YellsI walked out of my house and was immediately hit in the head with a slice of ham. That was followed by a pound of ground beef, Let it out! Today is International Moment of Frustration Scream Day P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank PLEASESEEPUN PAGE24 Amendment 5Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site): Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitution relating to the judiciary. The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for the practice and procedure in all courts. The constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. This proposed constitutional revision eliminates the requirement that a general law repealing a court rule pass by a twothirds vote of each house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general law approved by a majority vote of each house of the Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legislature determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the court from further readopting the repealed rule without the Legislatures prior approval. Under current law, rules of the judicial nominating commissions and the Judicial Qualifications Commission may be repealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. Under this proposed revision, a vote to repeal those rules is changed to repeal by general law enacted by a majority vote of the legislators present. Under current law, the Governor appoints a justice of the Supreme Court from a list of nominees provided by a judicial nominating commission, and appointments by the Governor are not subject to confirmation. This revision requires Senate confirmation of a justice of the Supreme Court before the appointee can take office. If the Senate votes not to confirm the appointment, the judicial nominating commission must reconvene and may not renominate any person whose prior appointment to fill the same vacancy was not confirmed by the Senate. For the purpose of confirmation, the Senate may meet at any time. If the Senate fails to vote on the appointment of a justice within 90 days, the justice will be deemed confirmed and will take office. The Judicial Qualifications Commission is an independent commission created by the State Constitution to investigate and prosecute before the Florida Supreme Court alleged misconduct by a justice or judge. Currently under the constitution, commission proceedings are confidential until formal charges are filed by the investigative panel of the commission. Once formal charges are filed, the formal charges and all further proceedings of the commission are public. Currently, the constitution authorizes the House of Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may request, and the Judicial Qualifications Commission must make available, all information in the commissions possession for use in deciding whether to impeach a justice or judge. This proposed revision requires the commission to make all of its files available to the Speaker of the House of Representatives but provides that such files would remain confidential during any investigation by the House of Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit of an impeachment of a justice or judge. This revision also removes the power of the Governor to request files of the Judicial Qualifications Commission to conform to a prior constitutional change. This revision also makes technical and clarifying additions and deletions relating to the selection of chief judges of a circuit and relating to the Judicial Qualifications Commission, and makes other nonsubstantive conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of the constitution. Arguments for:Supporters say the measure would make the appellate court system run more efficiently and add a layer of accountability before Supreme Court justices are appointed. Arguments against: Opponents say the measure is a dangerous attempt to exert political influence over the judicial branch by giving legislators more authority. Should the State Senate Confirm Florida Supreme Court Appointees?Amendment 5 is about the balance of power among the judicial, legislative and executive branches of government. One of the more meaningful provision is the one granting the state Senate confirmation power over appointees to the Florida Supreme Court. Currently, the governor fills openings on the court by appointing a nominee from a list presented by a judicial nominating commission. If passed, this amendment would allow the Senate to reject or approve nominees. It would also give members of the state House of Representatives access to confidential files involving judges accused of misconduct, and would give lawmakers the right to repeal procedural court rules with a simple majority vote rather than a two-thirds majority vote, as currently required. Supporters say it would bring change to a court system that gives the governor too much power in appointing judges. Opponents say it would politicize the process and shift the balance of power by giving the Legislature too much influence over the judiciary. The measure passed the Legislature largely along party lines, with Republicans in favor and Democrats against. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If passed, it becomes effective on Jan. 8, 2013. HistoryOver its first 40 years after becoming a state in 1845, Florida changed the way it decides who sits on the Supreme Court a half-dozen times, from Legislative appointment, to popular elections, to gubernatorial appointment with Senate oversight, and then back to popular elections. Starting in 1972, Florida ended the popular election of justices and changed to a merit selection system. That process begins when a vacancy opens on the court and a Judicial Nominating Commission compiles a list of three to six nominees to present to the governor. The governor selects an appointee from that list who is then seated on the court. After being appointed, justices serve six-year terms and face voters in a yes or no retention vote at the end of each term to decide whether they remain in office, based on the merit of their service.How Florida ComparesAbout a dozen states use a gubernatorial appointment system similar to the one Florida currently uses to select Supreme Court justices, according to the National Center for State Courts. Another dozen states have some sort of state Senate or other legislative confirmation process like that being proposed in Amendment 5. The remaining states let the public choose their Supreme Court justices, mostly through non-partisan elections. Title on ballot: State Courts Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This measure would provide for Senate confirmation of Supreme Court justices; give lawmakers control over changes to the rules governing the court system; and direct the Judicial Qualifications Commission, which investigates judicial misconduct complaints, to make its files available to the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives. If you vote yes: A yes vote means you want the Senate to have confirmation power over Supreme Court appointees, and some authority over changes to the rules that govern the states courts. You also want to grant the House access to Judicial Qualifications Commissions investigative files on judges. If you vote no: A no vote means you do not want these proposed changes made to the states judiciary. Amendment 6Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site): This proposed amendment provides that public funds may not be expended for any abortion or for health-benefits coverage that includes coverage of abortion. This prohibition does not apply to an expenditure required by federal law, a case in which a woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or physical illness that would place her in danger of death unless an abortion is performed, or a case of rape or incest. This proposed amendment provides that the State Constitution may not be interpreted to create broader rights to an abortion than those contained in the United States Constitution. With respect to abortion, this proposed amendment overrules court decisions which conclude that the right of privacy under Article I, Section 23 of the State Constitution is broader in scope than that of the United States Constitution. Arguments for: Supporters say this makes it clear Florida prohibits public funding for abortions and gives the public a voice in deciding state abortion law.Arguments against: Opponents say this amendment discriminates against women, strips away a womans fundamental right to choose, and erodes established law, including rights of privacy.Should federal abortion laws be enshrined in the state constitution? And should the states constitutional right to privacy be modified? Amendment 6 raises two questions related to abortion rights in Florida. The first whether the state constitution should reflect the existing federal prohibitions on the public funding of abortions would not change current abortion funding practices in Florida. The second whether to modify a provision in the state constitution that guarantees a right to privacy for every Floridian would affect abortion law in the state. As to the impact on state law, the first question matters less than the second. For several decades, federal law has prohibited the expenditure of federal funds for most abortions (exceptions include rape, incest and medical conditions that threaten the mothers life). Amendment 6 would not expand those prohibitions. If passed, it would simply duplicate the existing federal prohibitions. The second question is more consequential. In 1980, Florida voters passed a constitutional amendment that says, in part: Every natural person has the right to be let alone and free from governmental intrusion into the persons private life This privacy right is often used to challenge abortion measures passed by Florida lawmakers. Over the years, courts have cited the clause when blocking parental-notification laws involving pregnant minors and laws requiring doctors to counsel women about alternatives to abortion. The law was pivotal in a landmark case in 1989 that prevented Gov. Jeb Bush from stopping a pregnant 13-yearold in state custody from choosing to have an abortion. In short, passage of Amendment 6 would mean parental-notification laws or other types of procedural abortion legislation passed by state lawmakers would no longer be subject to challenge under the states privacy law. Supporters say this amendment puts the state on even footing with the federal government and allows the electorate to express its opinion on abortion law. Its a broad enough value issue that we should let the public speak, state Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, a sponsor of the amendment, told the Ocala Star-Banner. I think its far-reaching and its controversial, but we as a state will address the sanctity of life, which is a foundational issue. Opponents say it is a pre-emptive strike on a womans right to choose. This amendment would roll back womens rights as protected under the Florida Constitution. We would be reversing that express right to privacy, Stephanie Kunkel, the former executive director of Planned Parenthood of Florida, told the Ocala Star-Banner. The Florida House approved the measure by a 79-34 vote. The Florida Senate voted 27-12 to approve the measure. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved, the bill will go into effect on Jan. 8, 2013. HistoryBy 1965, abortions were deemed illegal in all 50 states. As a result, many women began to utilize illegal underground abortion services. In 1973, the landmark United States Supreme Court decision, Roe V. Wade, reformed abortion law. The Court recognized that a woman has a constitutionally protected right to terminate pregnancy until her fetus is viable, which the law says is at about 24 weeks gestation. Abortions beyond that legally defined viability period can occur to protect the mothers life. In 2007, a total of 91,954 abortions were performed in Florida, according to a state analysis of the bill that became Amendment 6. For 83,890 of those, the gestational age of the fetus was 12 weeks and under; for 8,063, the gestational age of the fetus was 13 to 24 weeks; and for one, the gestational age was over 25 weeks. The Hyde Amendment In 1976, three years after Roe v. Wade, a federal legislative provision called the Hyde Amendment passed, which prohibited the use of public money for abortions except in cases of rape, incest and for preserving the life of the mother. The Hyde Amendment, introduced by Rep. Henry J. Hyde, R-Ill, prevents Medicaid and any other programs under the Department of Health and Human Services to fund abortions. Based on the Hyde Amendment, Medicaid reimburses for abortions if: The woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or physical illness, including a life-endangering physical condition caused or arising from the pregnancy itself that would place the woman in danger of death unless an abortion is performed. When the pregnancy is the result of rape (sexual battery). When the pregnancy is the result of incest. State Privacy LawIn the 1970s, a newspaper reporter seeking to obtain the records of a private consulting firms search for a managing director of a public utility invoked the states public records law. Not wanting to make the documents public, the consulting firm argued that the states constitution protected individuals from government intrusion, according to a review of the states privacy law in the book, Constitutional Politics in the States. The case eventually ended up before the Florida Supreme Court, and in January 1980 the court said it found no language in the state constitution guaranteeing a right to privacy. Soon after, a bipartisan group of lawmakers introduced a resolution to establish a constitutional right to privacy. Their intent was to limit government intrusion into the private lives of individuals. Title on Ballot: Prohibition on Public Funding of Abortions; Construction of Abortion Rights Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would make the existing federal ban on public funding for most abortions part of the state constitution. It would narrow the scope of a state privacy law that is sometimes used in Florida to challenge abortion laws. If you vote yes: A yes vote means you support putting the existing federal ban on the use of public funds for abortions into the state constitution; and you support eliminating the states privacy right with respect to a womans right to choose. IF you vote no: A no vote means you are against placing the existing federal ban on using public funds for abortions into the state constitution; and you are against eliminating the states privacy right with respect to a womans right to choose. www.nutechhearing.com M-F 9:00 to 4:00 p.m. Sat. and Sun.

Fourth of a series of candidate appearances at a forum held at the library.BY JIM CLARK Editor School superintendent candidates took to the floor at a recent forum at the downtown library. Dr. Diana Greene, the Democratic candidate, spoke first. She emphasized her history in education in Marion County, from elementary school teacher to deputy superintendent. She noted that the district needs to reorganize to deal with the shrinking budget. She noted that the schools were receiving less money but were still expected to provide a quality education. She was asked about the fact that Marion County is the largest district in the state that still elects a superintendent and how she would create a good relationship with the School Board. It is a challenge, she said. There are six different people with six different agendas. She said she would meet monthly with each individual board member. Asked about teacher morale, she noted, Everything is not always about money. Teachers need to know theyre appreciated.

Rotary sale coming A 70-year-old Marion County resident is the first confirmed Florida death in the wake of the fungal meningitis outbreak currently under investigation nationwide. Officials would not release the persons name or area of residence. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of the victim, said Dr. Nathan Grossman, director of the Marion County Health Department. We are working hard to ensure that the people who may have been treated with the contaminated medicine are contacted and receive the treatment they need. The death occurred in mid-July, before the discovery of the contaminated lots of New England Compounding Center methylprednisolone acetate used for epidural back injections. Marion County Health Department staff discovered the link between the death of the 70-year-old resident and the contaminated steroid during the investigation of the fungal meningitis outbreak. The Health Department has discovered six fungal meningitis cases linked to the contaminated steroid in Marion County. In partnership with the Florida Pain Clinic, Marion Pain Management Center and the Surgery Center of Ocala, the Marion County Health Department is working to ensure that every patient who may have been injected with the contaminated steroid is contacted. Since the Health Department began its investigation on Oct. 1, more than 350 patients of the three clinics who may have been injected with the contaminated medicine have been contacted. Health Department staff members have made more than 35 visits to PLEASESEEVICTIM PAGE26 WPHS acting students perform improv-comedy *See sales person for details.
