A health fair and seminar sessions will continue through the afternoon. Hannah Curlee will share her inspiring story of life-changing weight loss and help others recognize how they too can achieve weight loss and healthy living goals. Curlee is half the woman she used to be or 51.6 percent of her former self, to be exact. Curlee and her sister, Olivia Ward, were the top two finishers on Season 11 of NBCs The Biggest Loser reality show. By the shows end, Curlee had dropped from 248 pounds to 128, a 120-pound loss. For viewers, the transformation was startling. For Curlee, it was life altering. We are thrilled that Hannah is visiting Ocala and participating in an event directed at helping the women of greater Marion County make more informed decisions about their healthcare, said Ginger Carroll, CEO of Ocala Healths West Marion Community Hospital. Women are the primary decision makers when it comes to the health and well-being of their family. Whether it concerns their children, husbands, parents, themselves, possibly even friends or neighbors, women carefully weigh the healthcare choices they have to make. This forum will offer attendees access to a number of resources in a variety of medical specialties, Carroll added. During the health fair, attendees will have an opportunity to speak one-on-one with clinical specialists in cardiovascular disease, orthopedics, bariatric surgery, diabetes, nutrition, diagnostic imaging, neuroscience, and womens health.

Here are some of the attractions that spectators seemed to enjoy. BY JIM CLARK Editor Spurred on by an overflow crowd consisting mainly of enthusiastic supporters, Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan spoke Thursday at the Ocala Downtown Square. With red the predominant color, people from all over jammed downtown for what was billed as a victory rally, a gathering that for all practical purposes shut down center city for much of the day. After addressing the crowd, Ryan, running mate for former Gov. Mitt Romney, said he was turning it into a town hall meeting, and took a few questions directly from the audience, although the diversity and tone of the questions made some wonder if they were pre-arranged. One of the questioners praised him for not using a Teleprompter. As he approached the stage, there were a few minor chants of four more years for President Obama, but those were quickly drowned out by the crowd yelling no more years. Ryan, who earlier had flown a campaign jet into Ocala International Airport, was given a rousing introduction by PHOTO BY RON RATNERVice presidential candidate Paul Ryan arrives.

John Messeroll Ocala John Messeroll, loved husband and best friend of wife, Terri and beloved father of five children, died peacefully in his sleep Sunday morning, Oct. 7, 2012. The children, John Messeroll and wife Bonnie, Jeff Messeroll and Sandi Mangino, Jim Messeroll and Karen Jervic, Merrie and Mike Chasan, Kerrin and Don Ancrun, and their families, all live in New Jersey. John leaves six cherished grandchildren, Nicole and Kelsie Chasan, Jack and Alyse Messeroll, Tagg Ancrum and Kai Messeroll, and two cherished step grandchildren, Erica Ward (newly married to Joe Ward) and Conor Jervic. A graduate of Rutgers University, John attended Rutgers law school. He was director of Purchasing and Acquisitions with Harper and Row Publishers 5th Avenue, NYC. He left H&R to become CEO of Princeton Archives and later CEO of Delta Group. John had an entrepreneurial spirit and developed a variety of businesses. He was owner/developer of Princeton Consortium and Community Pride Publications in Princeton, N.J. The Consortium published small books, trade magazines, directories, educational guides, sports, health bulletins, medical monthly newsletters, elementary teachers guides etc., for libraries, businesses, coaches, schools and colleges including Tufts University, Princeton University, Johnson and Johnson Medical Health. Community Pride Publishing House was best known for its New Jersey and Pennsylvania area guide lifestyle magazines including Middlesex, Monmouth, Somerset, Atlantic Counties, Princeton, New Brunswick, New Hope, Bucks County, Pa., and others. He was proud of his award winning Pa. Fortune magazine. He was very active in the community and church. John was in various organizations, National Publishers Association, AIP NAP He sat on the board of directors of Princeton Chamber of Commerce, New Brunswick Chamber of Commerce, Alpha Pregnancy Center of Princeton and New Hope Pennsylvania. He was a philanthropic and caring man. The sign over his desk stated his priorities and guide for living. It read God ~ Family ~ Country. When Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, John and Terri went to help as volunteers. There John accepted a job working for Homeland Security, NSA and Fema Recovery, while Terri worked with Red Cross and later Catholic Intercity Mission. John retired to Ocala, Fla., in December 2006, but in a few months was reactivated back to New Mexico and Louisiana. His contract extended until he recently retired in July 2012. He was requested back for a 30-day temporary emergency DEA assignment and he returned to New Orleans for this deployment just weeks ago. He decided that this would be his last assignment and obviously God was in agreement. With retirement imminent John jokingly said he could now finish law school and try to decipher some of Floridas unique legalities. Our hearts are full of sorrow, yet we rejoice knowing that our dear one is with our Lord and Savior ~and his Heavenly Father. John is cherished and already deeply missed. Funeral Mass and services will be in New Jersey. There will be a memorial service in our adopted Crescent City, New Orleans, and here in Florida at a later date.

LOSERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 CEP CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 SLEEP TOWARD HEAVEN By Amanda Eyre WardHeres a quick read and I mean it; you can finish it in an afternoon. Its about three womens intersecting lives although they have little in common. Some readers may predict the ending but others will find it surprising. In Gatestown, Texas, 29year-old Karen Lowes, a serial killer, awaits her execution. In Manhattan Dr. Franny Wren longs to escape her suffocating life and her mismatched fianc. In Austin, Texas beautiful Celia Mills struggles to find life meaningful again after the murder of her beloved husband. All three embark on a painful journey involving the meaning of life, death, and forgiveness. Just months before her scheduled wedding Franny Wren is poised to flee Manhattan for her native Texas but wonders if change will really make a difference: When do you stop trusting the instinct to run? When do you accept that you will never feel at home, no matter where you go? When do you make yourself stay? Meanwhile, on Death Row Karen awaits her execution in the company of other murderersjaded, embittered women still protesting their innocence. Conditions are horrible: a TV blares constantly, doors slam open and shut, women scream and yell and bang their cell bars with trays. Every two days or so they are stripsearched. Ward does an excellent job of researching Huntsville, the prison system and the death sentence and without any pious sermonizing. Along the way she does some heavy lifting from news media. Karens crimes and personal life, for instance, are taken straight from Aileen Wuornos story. Still another inmate has a story very much like that of Darlie Routier, the woman convicted of stabbing her two small sons while her husband slept upstairs. Declaring her innocence she believes the conviction was Quick, powerful story about two women B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington PLEASESEEBOOK PAGE30 the result of a misguided birthday party over the graves of her children, complete with balloons and silly string. Each chapter in Sleep Toward Heaven develops the perspective of one of the three damaged women. The writing is spare and powerful and compellingly written. BOOK CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 Workforce Connection of Citrus, Levy and Marion counties cautions jobseekers to be alert for scammers usurping the names of legitimate businesses and organizations to take advantage of those looking for work. Workforce Connection CEO Rusty Skinner said that the regional workforce board decided to issue the warning after hearing about the problem from other workforce boards. In Panama City, he said, the Gulf Coast Workforce Board recently reported scammers posted jobs on the Employ Florida Marketplace luring jobseekers who, when they responded, were instructed to send money in advance for required job training. Scammers are unscrupulous, clever and are often very good at what they do, Skinner said. It is unconscionable that these imposters are taking money from people who are diligently seeking employment. The Employ Florida Marketplace, or EFM, is the states premier online job bank and used by all 24 regional workforce boards. Even though EFM posts scamming warnings on nearly every page, Skinner said that when someone is searching for work and finds what appears to be a promising job, its easy to get excited and let your guard down. Skinner noted that so far there have been no reports of similar employment scams in Citrus, Levy and Marion counties.

Friday, October 26, 2012 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good time to speak out on a difficult situation. Youre known for your honesty, so people will listen and, perhaps, begin to make long-needed changes. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovines sharp business sense alerts you to question the positions of those trying to push the Bull into a deal. Demand to see proof of what they profess. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your quick thinking helps you get out of a troubling situation that was suddenly thrust upon you. Later on, you can expect to learn more about why it happened. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel youve dotted all your is and crossed all your ts regarding that upcoming deal. But there might be some facts youve ignored. Check again. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Time for the Lion to be more physically active. It will help shake off any lingering Leonine lethargy and restore your energy levels, so youll be prepared for what lies ahead. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Helping those in need at this time is laudable. But dont ignore your own needs, especially where it concerns your health. A medical checkup is a wise move. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Good news: Your outspoken views about a controversial on-the-job situation could find unexpectedly strong support from a most unlikely workplace faction. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might have to draw on your reservoir of spiritual strength to help someone special through a difficult time. Your loving attitude makes all the difference. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your proven leadership qualities make you the perfect person to take on an important workplace task. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Although some compromise might need to be reached regarding your stand on an important issue, youll still be able to get the most crucial points across. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A chance to make a career change carries both positive and uncertain possibilities. Best advice: Check it out thoroughly and dont be rushed into a decision. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Youre still a staunch supporter of one side of an important issue. But be prepared to deal with new information that could cause you to question your current stand. BORN THIS WEEK: Youre perceptive and quick to act when you sense that someone needs help. You are an always-dependable friend. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site): Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to replace the president of the Florida Student Association with the chair of the council of state university student body presidents as the student member of the Board of Governors of the State University System and to require that the Board of Governors organize such council of state university student body presidents. Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment guarantees every university has a chance to have their student body president be named as a representative of the Board of Governors. Arguments against:Opponents say this amendment is unnecessary.Should the state change the way the student representative on the university systems Board of Governors is selected?Amendment 12 concerns the student representative on the Board of Governors, which oversees the states university system. The Board of Governors has 17 members, one of which is the chairman of the Florida Student Association (FSA). If passed, Amendment 12 would instruct the Board of Governors to create a new council consisting of the student body presidents of the states 12 universities. The chair of that new council would replace the chair of the FSA as the student representative to the Board of Governors. This measure won unanimous approval in the House and near unanimous approval in the Senate. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the votes. If approved by the voters, it would go into effect on Jan. 8, 2013. HistoryIn 2002, roughly 60 percent of Floridas voters approved a constitutional amendment creating a Board of Governors to oversee state universities. Three of its 17 members are seated by virtue of position and 14 are appointed by the governor and subject to confirmation by the Florida Senate. The appointed members serve sevenyear terms. The three members seated by virtue of position are the Florida Education Commissioner, the chair of the Advisory Council of Faculty Senates (representing university faculty), and the chair of the FSA (representing university students). Student body presidents from the states various universities comprise the FSA, which charges membership dues. Over the years, several universities chose not pay the dues and participate in the FSA. As a result their representatives in those years could not have been the student representative on the Board of Governors. The Board of GovernorsBroadly speaking, the Board of Governors oversees the operation of the states 12 universities. It defines the mission of each university, submits annual budgets to the Legislature, governs degree programs and oversees admissions programs, among other duties. The FSA The Florida Student Association formed in 1976 as a not-for-profit research and advocacy group representing university students. A year later the Florida Legislature provided student representation on the Board of Regents (forerunner of the Board of Governors), and in 1978 secured voting rights for the student member of the Regents. A priority of the FSA is keeping tuition increases to a minimum. Over the years it has been involved in efforts to reduce teacher-student ratios and increase voter participation among students, and an advocate for the states pre-paid college program and the Bright Futures Scholarship Program. Its mission is to advocate the interests of the state university students at all levels of government. Friday, October 26, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com B ased on insider experiences in presidential campaigns, Republican Mary Matalin and Democrat James Carville answered our question in the title of their book on the subject: Alls Fair: Love, War, and Running for President. Their expertise is enhanced by their political mixed marriage and their familiarity with the movers and shakers of party politics. For his re-election theme song, President Obama added fairness to his signature messages of hope and change: I want an America where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules. Fairness is a vague ideal whose absence has aggravated most of us to exclaim at one time or another. Thats not fair! Though its unknown yet whether Mr. Obamas call for fairness has been a successful campaign slogan, it did prompt Time Magazine to invite a commentary titled The New Culture War over Fairness from Professor Johathon Haidt of the New York University School of Business. According to Professor Haidt, our political parties and their presidential candidates believe in fairness but disagree about what kind of fairness is fair. There are any number of fairnesses. Theres proportional fairwww.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, October 26, 2012 W hen a top political candidate comes to visit your area, its a public relations boon, especially when someone like vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan opens his comments by saying what great Florida weather he was experiencing. But Ryans visit to Ocala last week has me thinking of some things, just coming up with some questions without answers. So let me present some of those to you. Was the square the best place to hold this rally? In the middle of a workday? Other people and I have thought of several better places, such as Booster Stadium, the Livestock Pavilion, Veterans Memorial Park, etc. Why was it necessary to close off the streets so early? Ryan wasnt scheduled until noon, but the Boulevard was closed at about 7 a.m. (photographer Ron Ratner got a great picture for us of the closed street). People who didnt know could have been late for work, children could have been late for school, etc. Would it have hurt to wait, say, until 8:30. Did businesses in and around the square gain or lose customers because of the event? Then there was the security. Congressman Cliff Stearns walks around Ocala unencumbered any time he feels like it. Congressman Paul Ryan has a security detail that would make a Third World country proud. Ryan is a candidate, but hasnt been elected yet. Wouldnt a smaller detail do? Did we really need G-men with automatic weapons (someone called them tommy guns) at both the airport and downtown? Did we really need all those security people on the rooftops? And speaking of the airport, was it necessary, or even legal, for these security people to stop photographers from taking pictures outside? In fact, at first they wanted to stop all pictures, anywhere. This is our airport, folks, our rules. If you dont like it, stay in Washington. Why do they call it the Secret Service? Whats so secret about the only people in suits, with their little pin on the lapel and their little earpiece? Hopefully, there were other agents blending in in the crowd who didnt advertise their position. To me, these would be the most effective security personnel. How about the TSA? TSA stands for Transportation Security Administration. The mission, according to the TSA website, is TSA has established guiding principles to maintain the security of the traveling public and continuously set the standard for excellence in transportation security. So was the use of the TSA to conduct security on the square the proper use of the agency? The only transporting being done there was people walking because they had to park so far away. Ive gone to sporting events where you have to go through security. It seems they could have done just as well in providing security. And finally, the big question. Whos paying for all of this, especially all the extra work that local people, including law enforcement, had to do? Please tell me it was the Republican National Committee or some such group, and not the taxpayers of Marion County. Even with all these questions, we thank the Republicans for helping the nation hear about Ocala, and we praise all those who conducted the event and made things run smoothly. And I guess everything is relative. I would have loved to see the crowd limits during Biketoberfest in Daytona Beach when both Romney and Ryan arrived the following day.

T oday we come to the end of the list of amendments, and if it took this long to go through them, just think of what the lines will be like on Election Day if you arent prepared or havent voted early. Amendment 10 is a Tangible Personal Property Exemption, which increases the tax exemption on personal property for businesses from $25,000 to $50,000. This is another one of those that could hurt the local government by taking away valuable tax dollars for schools, law enforcement, etc. Were sure that some businessmen think this is a good idea, but smaller businesses may not have enough to worry about it. In other words, this is one that protects the bigger businesses from paying more taxes. As we go through these amendments, we see a constant theme of cutting taxes without any way to make up for the lost revenue. So for this one, were saying vote no. The same argument applies to Amendment 11. The title says Additional Homestead Exemption for Low Income Seniors who Maintain Long Term Residency on Property, Equal to Assessed Valuation. This would give counties and cities the right to grant full homestead exemption to seniors who have lived in their homes for at least 25 years and whose home is less than $250,000. Income must be below $27,000. Again, this sounds good at first blush, but how many low-income seniors do you know who live in a home worth $250,000. This is another hit the counties and cities would take in tax revenue, mainly in other parts of the state, and we cant see any reason to approve it here. Finally, Amendment 12 concerns the appointment of a student body president to the Board of Governors of the State University System. If youve been here a while, you remember the old Board of Regents. In our wisdom we disbanded that for a board of governors and set the standards for choosing members. This would change the way one member, a student representative, is chosen. It seems like an awful lot of paperwork for one person. Frankly, were a little old fashioned on this one. We still feel that you have the faculty and administrators and trustees (board of governors) over here, and the students over there. Why should students be on the board at all? And since theres only one, is that just a token representative so we can say that the students have a voice? This is too much to worry about in a serious election. Just vote no on this one. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY The end of the amendments A nice visit, but whos paying for it? Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Alls fair in love and war: How about politics? Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED ness in which benefits should equal contributions. Equal fairness means same benefits to everyone, regardless of contributions. And theres procedural fairness, which means fair rules as to who gets what. Presidential candidates and their parties may warm up to one kind of fairness for a short time. Then depending on how the political winds are blowing, they may suddenly champion a different concept of fair play. Politics and politicians are fickle. If you dont remember the Fairness Doctrine, it was a 1950s rule of the Federal Communications Commission which directed television networks to provide air time for opposing views on issues of public importance. The unspoken threat in the Doctrine was that the big three television networks CBS, NBC, ABC would have to explain appearances of one-sidedness when they applied to renew their broadcast licenses. At the time, conservatives thought the doctrine was a fair idea. The Fairness Doctrine was repealed in 1987, during the Reagan administration. Even though the doctrine had received an OK from the Supreme Court, Reagan and his successor, the first President Bush, disliked that brand of fairness. When Democrats took back control of Congress during the first two years of the Obama administration, the Fairness Doctrine looked like an inviting way to put pins in the balloons of right-wing radio talk shows, which were slamming President Obamas stimulus program. The possibility that the doctrine would be revived caused conservatives to howl: Not fair. President Obama didnt think reinstating the Fairness Doctrine was a good idea either, so Congress let it drift back into obscurity. Seasoned and successful campaigner that he is, Mr. Obama apparently decided a vague campaign call for fair shots, fair shares, and fair rules would be more appealing to voters. Thats smart campaigning. Depending on the election outcome, Republicans may end up wondering why they didnt campaign on fair taxation, fair health care, fair energy, and fair immigration no details, just hope and change. It worked for Mr. Obama, and may work again. Editors note: To avoid any last-minute attack letters that cant be answered, today will be the last day that letters about the election will be published.

It remains apparent that he is not running on his record but continues to promote class warfare and fear, especially among us seniors. Nothing should take the place of looking at where we are today, our deficit, unemployment, the record number in poverty and on food stamps. Our economy hasnt been this bad since the great depression and this hurts everybody. We cant continue on this downward spiral for there are fewer jobs today than there were four years ago! The only way our situation will improve is by having more citizens finding jobs in our private sector, and I know of no one who is better qualified for creating jobs than Romney. Job creation is his number one priority and he has the track record to prove his success as a businessman. He will quickly turn our economy around because he not only knows what needs to be done, he knows how to do it. He will not harm our Social Security or Medicare, so stop worrying about that. He wants to be sure its there for several generations, not just us. By the time this letter is printed, we should know most of the details regarding the murder of our ambassador and the three other men in our embassy. If the truth reveals a cover up to the magnitude the evidence is now indicating, we have a problem that is much larger than Watergate. Billy Graham and many of our other clergy are publically stating concerns they have about Americas direction, asking us to be true to our God and to seek his will in this election. Think and pray before you vote. May God continue to bless America. Wayne Rackley Ocala Inflammatory letterNever before has an election produced such inflammatory letters to The Editor as the current one. Yes, there are serious questions that must be answered, however they must be answered with accurate and appropriate information. In the current issue of the South Marion Citizen one letter was completely, totally inaccurate and devoid of factual information regarding Presidential Executive Orders as signed by President Barack H. Obama. First and foremost, executive orders are and must be for the enforcement of statutes of record and cannot create new laws. Executive orders have been used since our esteemed first presidentGeorge Washington. Second, the EO Numbers are from President John F. Kennedy (10990-11005) President Lyndon B. Johnson (11310) and President Gerald Ford (11921). Third, the number of orders signed by President Obama as of October 15, 2012 is 140, none of them have any reference to the subjects quoted. Fourth, before making assertions that are of dubious character, some research should be completedi.e. Snopes.com, Nationalarchive.gov are just two of the most reputable and trustworthy sites. Bigotry and prejudice have no place in the political arena. Let's endeavour to omit such from our daily lives and commit to honest and open discussion based on our informed opinions as the course America should take in the future. Finally, do not be taken in by half truths. Learn for ourselves and from history, particularly the 3-30 years, ascertaining the facts and interpreting them with open mind. Wilmer Wakeley Ocala Executive ordersThe article about executive orders in the recent issue of the Citizen has so many errors and misinformation that someone needs to call the writer out on the outrageous claims he is making concerning the issuance of executive orders by the president. He starts off by saying the president has issued 923 executive orders over the 3 1/2 years of his presidency. Wrong!! As of Oct. 15, 2012, Obama has signed 140 executive orders. Ronald Reagan issued 409, the elder Bush 149 and George W. Bush 288. Google snopes.com for the info. Next he cites several orders he claims will take away power and freedom from we the people. His exact words. The executive order he is referring to is nothing more than a restatement of policy that has been in place for decades and grants no authority to the president or the Cabinet that they don't already have under existing law. None of these items revisited claim authority to seize private property and place them at the personal disposal of Obama. The original EO was issued in 1939 and has been superseded or changed a number of times without any fanfair. Why the update? The big change deals with the Cabinet itself since there was not a Dept. of Homeland Security at the time and most duties dealing with defense preparedness in times of national emergency were handled by FEMA, the same folks that now concern themselves with hurricanes, flood, fires. So what this all boils down to is an amending of the Defense Production Act which has been in effect since the Truman administration and which authorizes the president, any president Republican or Democrat, to direct private business to allocate resources to national defense as needed in a time of national emergency in much the same way that rationing was implemented during World war II. Nothing more, nothing less Fritz Lauer Oak RunDont believe everythingReaders, please, please, please, do not believe everything you read, particularly letters to the editor of the South Marion Citizen written by regular conservative contributors. A most recent submission in the Oct. 19 edition is a wonderful example. The writer obviously accepts without any research or fact-checking (oops, sorry for the offensive language!) e-mails and blogs that are consistent with anti-Obama beliefs. In this case, the claim is that President Obama has issued 923 executive orders while his predecessor issued only 62, with 10 examples of numbered orders listed that, in words or the contributor, "definitely take away power and freedom from we the people!" And yes, the descriptions of these orders do seem like they would do just that. But once again pesky facts come into play. According to numerous government, fact-checking and other non-partisan sources on the internet, Obama has actually issued 139 executive orders, and Bush issued 290. And the 10 examples listed? All issued by JFK in 1962, and none even remotely related to the descriptions described in the letter to the editor! One wonders how the letter writer's source could have made this "mistake." I'll be waiting for the letters blaming Obama for the small Social Security increase and the increase in Medicare premiums... Bill Tetzlaff Ocala Green company brokeThis week another of President Obamas Green companies went broke. That makes 8 or 10 at a cost to taxpayers over a billion dollars. It occurs to me we only hear about these companies twice. When they start up and when they fail. So why does this happen over and over? It is simple. No accountability. I retired from the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad. One third of my career was in planning. Planning was simple. First you estimate income. Then you estimate cost. (It's called a budget) The difference is what you return to the investors. In most cases it is stock holders, in others (a category BNSF now belongs) it is direct investors.

Friday, October 26, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com vestors were to whom we were accountable. When revenue outlook changes you modify your cost. The BNSF has made money every year of its century and a half existance. Often it took severe cutbacks in the expense column. That's what we did because we understood the main idea was to return a profit to the investors which, in turn, encouraged more in vestment. Now everybody wants clean air, water and renewable energy, so these companies are good ideas gone bad. From now on when a Democrat comes up with a good idea instead of putting a crony in charge, put a Republican in charge. Republicans understand Passion is not enough and Profit is not a swear word. Bill Riola Oak RunNelson has it right Having worked for the 92nd Congress and a Republican at that, I know members of Congress should show up for roll call votes as well as regular sessions. If they don't, it's called lazy and giving their constituents no representation. Now, in working for Congress it was for Congressman Delbert Latta, (R) from Bowling Green, Ohio. He was always there. No better man ever served in Congress. Now, Senator Nelson has been reporting on Representative Connie Mack's poor attendance in Congress and shirking his responsibilities to the people of his district in Florida. If one were to research the issue, you will find that Senator Nelson is right on the mark. During 2012, Representative Mack has only showed up only 178 times, and has not showed up to vote on 25 of the last 27 votes. In other words his constituents have had Empty Chair Representation. Plus during his last seven years in office, he's had only one bill passed and the president who signed that bill was President Obama. Now, I have to ask. For anyone working in private industry, would you keep them on the payroll. I think no, I know I wouldn't. It's as though Connie Mack is a clone of Mitt Romney, spending all of his time away from Congress. A lot of Republicans have been doing just that. During this same time in 2012, Senator Nelson has missed only one (1) vote. Pretty darn good. I had the pleasure of meeting Senator Nelson four years ago, when he was in Ocala with the now Vice President Joe Biden. In fact, when I went to work for Congressman Latta, it was at the same time Joe Biden went to Congress, and our then State Senator, Lawton Chiles went to the U.S. Senate and went on to become, in later years, one of our great governors. Now I ask you, is that a great group or not. Just remember, who's telling the truth when you vote. Maybe Connie Mack and Mitt Romney should be in the private sector. Romney's already in a very, very private sector. In just what country we don't know. Bill Ford Ocala Vote for the right reasonIt's nearly time to vote for our next president. This election will be the most important one ever. The choice we make will determine the future of America: President Obama's socialist-like government, or Mitt Romney's constitutional republic. 1. By selecting Obama's way, our control of America's future will be taken from us and replaced by Obama's socialist-initiative. Many small businesses will disappear. Joblessness will increase even more. Taxes on the middle-class will get higher. The real estate and stock markets will again plummet. Individualism, and selfrespect will become nearly nonexistent. America will no longer be the major power it once was. Our Constitution and our God will be cast aside. 2. By selecting Romney's way, America's future will be determined by We, the People. We will begin the rebuilding process to get America back on the proven path. We will take pride in our achievements and our individualism. We will govern America based on our Constitution ... as intended, and reinstate God as the principle reason for our existence. You may plan to vote for a choice other than one of the two above. For example: he has a better personality or, his wife wears nicer clothes or, I'm a Democrat/Republican so I'll vote that line. Instead, you must decide on which of the above two you choose as your children's, and their children's future. This election is much too important to make any choice other than one of the two described above. Joe OHara Ocala A note to the president Dear President Obama: A challenge to a debate!!! Topic: Mental diversity, and redistribution. We have diversity of every stripe, what about mental diversity? Prove to citizens that a person with an I.Q. of 60 is going to become a doctor, or lawyer, or CEO, even if a trillion dollars is spent on the effort. Never going to happen. It should not be your decision to tell everyone they can and should go to college. Why waste money? So many graduates walk out the door with little knowledge to show for all the effort, and expense. They might have a lot of indoctrination, and propaganda, which does not count as education. Mental capacity is GOD given, and cannot be redistributed. Never. Speaking of redistribution: You have accomplished 5 trillion of that, to what avail? What do we have to show for all that spending? Not only have you redistributed the wealth of the nation, but, you have distributed my wealth (as little as it is), as well. It appears the standard of living has become inverted. When the poor stand in line with two carts they can hardly push stacked to the ceiling, and I am behind with my pathetic 2 or 3 items. I have had to weigh whether I can afford those 2 or 3 items. Then when you proceed to the parking lot, the poor are loading their purchases into cars, newer and better than many of my family, and friends. When and where does the redistribution LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 stop? That is not what Jesus had in mind when he exhorted us to help the poor. Jesus never said give them a standard of living equal to, or better than yours. Both Occupy Wall Street, and The Tea Party agree that there are those who seek unfair advantage to money and power, but we disagree on the solution. OWS wants to dismantle our system of government. The Tea Party wants to fix what is wrong. The unjust, unconstitutional laws these power lusters manipulated into law. Repeal them. Keep our system, best ever devised by mankind. This is the latest chapter in the good vs. evil scenario. When will we ever be able to stop the next holocaust? There is always the next generations power lusters. When will we learn???? Does anyone think mental diversity should be a criteria deserving of consideration? D.I. Larson Ocala Ocala WestEvangelist, author and scholar Rev.

This new exemption, if approved by the voters, will take effect on January 1, 2013, and apply to the 2013 tax roll and subsequent tax rolls. (2) Authorize a county or municipality for the purpose of its respective levy, and as provided by general law, to provide tangible personal property tax exemptions by ordinance. This is in addition to other statewide tangible personal property tax exemptions provided by the Constitution and this amendment. Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment will give tax relief to small businesses and help stimulate the economy. They say it provides a way for local governments to offer further reductions in the business tax. Arguments against:Opponents say this amendment is part of a trickle-down economic theory that does not work. They say it will strip millions in tax revenue from local governments struggling to provide basic services.Should the states tangible personal property tax exemption be doubled?This proposed amendment is about taxes assessed on tangible personal property used in a business or to earn income. Furniture, fixtures, machinery, tools, shelving, signs and equipment are examples of property that is subject to the states tangible personal property tax. By April 1 of each year, those owning tangible personal property that is used in a business or to earn income must file a return with the local property appraiser. Under current law, the first $25,000 of tangible personal property is exempt from taxation. If passed, Amendment 10 would boost that exemption to $50,000. It would also allow cities and counties to grant additional tangible personal tax exemptions beyond the $50,000 exemption. The measure won unanimous approval in the Senate and near-unanimous approval in House. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved by voters, the added exemption becomes effective Jan. 1, 2013. Fiscal Impact Tangible personal property taxes are levied by counties and by cities. Citing information from the state Department of Revenue, a Florida Senate analysis said 7.6 percent of the total county property taxes levied in Florida in fiscal year 2011-12 were from tangible personal property taxes. The corresponding amount for cities was 6.1 percent. Those percentages would likely decrease if Amendment 10 passes. Statewide, the additional exemption (from $25,000 to $50,000) proposed in Amendment 10 would reduce property tax collections across the state by a combined $61 million over its first three years, according to the state Revenue Estimating Conference, which calculates the anticipated fiscal impact of proposed amendments. The law also allows for counties and cities to expand the exemptions, but the fiscal impact of that proposed change cannot be estimated. Title on Ballot: Tangible Personal Property Tax Exemption Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would double the tangible personal property tax exemption and allow local governments to increase the exemption. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you want to double the tangible personal property tax exemption and allow cities and counties to expand the exemptions beyond that. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not want to double the tangible personal property tax exemption and you do not want to allow cities and counties to expand the exemptions. Early voting starts this weekend Amendment 11Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site): Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to authorize the Legislature, by general law and subject to conditions set forth in the general law, to allow counties and municipalities to grant an additional homestead tax exemption equal to the assessed value of homestead property if the property has a just value less than $250,000 to an owner who has maintained permanent residency on the property for not less than 25 years, who has attained age 65, and who has a low household income as defined by general law.Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment will benefit elderly residents on fixed incomes. They say the property tax discount can help with medical bills and may allow more elderly residents to stay in their homes as they age. Arguments against:Opponents say state and local governments face mounting budget shortfalls in part because of diminished property tax returns. Schools and local governments need to maintain the tax base. Should cities and counties be allowed to grant a full property tax exemption to certain low-income seniors?Amendment 11 authorizes cities and counties to grant full homestead property tax relief to low-income seniors who have lived in their home for at least 25 years. In short, it would allow local governments to eliminate the entire property tax bill for qualifying seniors. Homeowners who meet the following requirements would be eligible: 1) aged 65 and older; 2) have a household income of less than $27,030; 3) own a home with a market value of less than $250,000; 4) have lived in the home for at least 25 years. City councils and county commissions must pass the exemption by a super-majority vote before the full exemption can be offered. The measure won unanimous support in the Senate and House. There is no organized opposition. As with all amendments, passage requires approval by 60 percent or more of the voters. If passed, cities and counties would be authorized to grant the exemption beginning Jan. 8, 2013. HistoryVoters in 1998 approved a measure that authorized the Legislature to allow cities and counties to grant a homestead exemption up to $25,000 to seniors over 65 whose household income (at the time of the bills passage) did not exceed $24,200. That homestead exemption was in addition to the $50,000 in exemptions extended to all Florida homeowners. Schools taxes are excluded from the tax break. In 2012, state lawmakers passed a measure to place on the November ballot a proposed amendment authorizing cities and counties to grant a full homestead exemption to qualifying seniors. It became Amendment 11 on the ballot. Fiscal Impact The state estimates that the combined tax revenues schools and local governments would lose if Amendment 11 passes, and if every city and county in the state were to approve the exemption, would be a combined $18.5 million over the first two years it was offered. Title on Ballot: Additional Homestead Exemption; Low-Income Seniors Who Maintain Long-Term Residency on Property; Equal to Assessed Value Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would give an additional property tax exemption to low-income seniors who have lived in their home for more than 25 years. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you think cities and counties should have the authority to grant a full property tax discount to eligible seniors. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not think that cities and counties should have the authority to grant a full property tax discount to eligible seniors. 000D07D Cleanmaster CLEANMASTER CARPET & UPHOLSTERY CLEANING Servicing All Of Citrus & Marion County For 25 Years 489-4844 O W N E R D O E S T H E W O R K We Also Have Outdoor Pressure Cleaning Available.

The last time it happened, I promised myself it would never happen again, as long as I lived. So much for my promises, or maybe I died. I found myself stranded at the neighborhood grocery store. I meant to put gas in my car, honest I did. Somehow, it slipped my mind. I do not mind things slipping my mind if they are not important, and if it does not involve the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Unfortunately for me, this did. I dont mind lectures from my Beloved, if I could sometimes pick the topic. Topics like religion and politics would be a nice change. Her topic, which she never tires of, is my forgetfulness. At least I cant remember any other topic at the moment. My car was definitely out of gas and I was going nowhere in it. My only recourse was to walk across the street to the store, and call my wife to come and bail me out of trouble. Every husband knows how difficult this is because we have to do it so often. I went to the phone booth in the store and made the call. Then I went and took a seat to wait for her arrival. As I was waiting, I noticed an elderly gentleman come into the store. I call him a gentleman, but these days, who knows? This man walked into the store as if he was concerned about being followed. Every few steps he threw a glance over his shoulder as if someone was stalking him. Since I did not have anything to do for the next 20 minutes, I settled back to watch. When he got into the store, he cautiously walked around the store as if casing it. So many stores are being robbed; I didnt know but this man was planning to pull off a heist. My interest piqued, which kept my mind off the trouble I was in with my wife when she arrived to pick me up. When a person is in trouble, it is always a good thing to try to take ones mind off said trouble, and on someone who might be in more trouble than you are at the moment. At least, thats what I told myself at the time. When a person is facing trouble, he will say anything to himself to calm those jagged nerves. The man walked around the store several times, always glancing over his shoulder as if he expected something to happen. As far as I could tell, he was an ordinary man with no special features. He walked with a slow shuffle, but thats to be expected when a mans body ages. I saw him stand over against a corner for several minutes while he intently watched the front door. A little spooked by this time, I did not know if I should alert the manager or call the police. I envisioned the headlines in the newspapers the next day: Local pastor dies a heros death in the crossfire. I sure would like to be a hero, but only in my own mind. This hero business can be a little dangerous, so I was in a quandary. In scanning the gentleman as best I could, I knew he could not have a large weapon on his person. The loose fitting shirt revealed no bomb strapped to his chest, which was a little comforting. Then the gentleman Be sure, your sin will find you out O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L.

The meetings last about an hour including the presentation so you can learn a lot and not get saddle sores doing it. Join us for this worthwhile presentation. Newcomers coffee hourOn Saturday, Nov. 3 at 10 a.m., the Cherrywood Welcoming Committee will greet new residents in the clubhouse. If you are new to Cherrywood, you are cordially invited to come out for coffee and donuts and learn about your new community. Our Welcoming Committee offers a packet of information concerning not only the activities of Cherrywood but also various services offered by Marion County. Representatives of the various groups and committees will be there to answer questions and provide helpful hints to our new residents. This is an informal gettogether and offers people the opportunity to get to know their neighbors; learn about the functions and events we hold and learn too about how to save time and money in the area. If youve never attended one of these coffee hours, we urge you to make every effort to come out. Youll find it interesting and enlightening to say nothing of getting not only a free cup of coffee and snack, but a hearty handshake of welcome as well. Veterans Day celebrationSunday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m., the Cherrywood Veterans Club will hold its Veterans Day observance. The entire community is welcome to attend this special service honoring all of ourFriday, October 26, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com began to move and I froze. My life flashed before me in an instant which bored me almost to death. I never want to experience anything like that ever again. My focus once again went to the gentleman in motion. What was he going to do? Gradually he eased up to the bakery department. I almost stood, but at my height, I would be an easy target. Its hard for anyone to miss a barn door, especially one with a flashy smile. I braced myself for what would happen next. Then it happened. The elderly gentleman, with one last glance over his shoulder, bought a chocolate clair. I was confused relieved but confused. What was all the secrecy about? About this time, I saw him slither toward the bench where I was sitting. Without looking at me, the man sank into the corner as though hiding from someone. He sat there for a few minutes and then he opened his bag with the clair. Just as he took his first bite, someone recognized him, came up and said, Henry, is that a chocolate clair youre eating? He glanced at me and gave me one of those sick smiles that every husband recognizes. No matter how hard you try to keep something (like clairs) from your wife, it is impossible. There is a spiritual lesson here. No matter how hard you try to hide your sin, somewhere, somehow, when you least expect it, someone will see you. An Old Testament scripture lays down an important principle in this regard. But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the Lord: and be sure your sin will find you out. (Numbers 32:23 KJV.) David, the Psalmist, knew this and wrote, Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalm 139:23-24 KJV.) Live your life as though someone was watching you, because, Someone is watching you. Rev. James L.

U.S. Baseball Academy, which operates a national network of affordable hitting, pitching, catching, fielding and baserunning camps for players in grades 1 through 12, is pleased to announce the addition of Ocala Rotary Sportsplex to its lineup for the coming winter and spring. Registration is now under way at www.USBaseballAcademy.com. U.S. Baseball Academy's Spring Training 2013 is a unique concept that provides young players with advanced hitting, pitching, catching, fielding and baserunning training programs, instruction by the area's top coaches and fantastic facilities. The training sessions include six weeks of instruction for as low as $99. U.S. Baseball Academy's 2013 Spring Training program will be held at nearly 150 sites across the United States. The session in Ocala runs January 20 to February 24 at Ocala Rotary Sportsplex. Instructors will include a staff of the areas best coaches. With a player-coach ratio of 6 to 1, each player gets plenty of individual attention in a small-group atmosphere. In addition to unbeatable instruction by the area's best coaches, players get a preseason tune-up that helps them enter team practice in mid-season form. With numerous age-specific sessions, instruction is specially tailored for each ability level. Overall, it's the type of intense, professional instruction young players just can't get in a summer league. Since 1988, U.S. Baseball Academy has run hundreds of camps and clinics for thousands of players nationwide. Each week, hitters rotate through a series of supervised stations, including indoor batting cages, with each drill designed to teach a different aspect of hitting. Players enjoy participating in hitting games and unique stations used by top high school and college programs. The program is designed to improve pitch and strike zone recognition, timing, balance, power, situational hitting, bunting, and other aspects. Pitchers work under the supervision of coaches who can help with all aspects of pitching, from fundamentals and mechanics to more advanced concepts. Drills and repetition will improve a pitcher's speed and control. Our catcher's camp covers all aspects of being behind the plate. Players will get instruction on stance, signs, receiving, framing, blocking, throwing, fielding bunts, tags and the mental aspects of dealing with pitchers. Registration deadlines are approximately six weeks before each session begins, but last year's camps sold out much earlier. Because of the low player-coach ratio, spots in each session are limited. Complete details and times for each site, as well as registration forms, are available online at www.USBaseballAcademy.com or by phoning toll free 866-622-4487.

Deputy Colton Sullivan and his K-9 partner, Pyro, were at the Search Team meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 23. Pyro is an 18-month-old German Shepherd from Germany and is ATF certified. The team began K-9 school (a 480 hour course instructed by Lt. Jon Turner) in June 2012 and is now FDLE certified.

The K-9 Unit supports all law enforcement activity and the community of Marion County, including apprehension of fleeing criminals, warrant searches, building and area searches, article searches, search and rescue, pursuits, illegal drug eradication, bomb searches, cadaver searches, and assisting patrol deputies on inprogress calls for service. Aside from their law enforcement duties, the K-9 teams visit schools, churches, and businesses to give demonstrations of their dogs abilities and to give the public a better understanding of what the team is utilized for.

Decorating volunteers needed The sign-up sheet has been posted on the Activity Wall asking for volunteersFriday, October 26, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Y ears ago Halloween was strictly for childrens activities of dressing up in costumes and going from door to door for candy treats. Now, even adults get into the act wearing a costume and pretending to be other than what they really are. Halloween, next Wednesday, is our day for this. But our politicians do this every day, especially leading up to Election Day November 6. Our travel down Pun Alley take us to some haunts and ghostly stories for Halloween; but beware of the politicians who will continue their ghoulish activities for more than another week when you get to vote for the political joke of your choice. On Route 200 Rumors abound about a haunted house hidden in some trees on Route 200 and how everyone avoids it because of the ghost. Back some time ago an enterprising journalist decided to get the scoop by photographing the fearsome phantom. Late one night he entered the house armed with only his camera. The ghost immediately tried to scare him away. He told the ghost I mean no harm I just want your photograph. The ghost was quite happy at this chance to make the headlines, so he posed for a number of ghostly shots. When the happy journalist began developing the photos in his dark room they turned out to be black and underexposed. It seems that the spirit was willing but the flash was weak. Medical costumes Two medical residents were invited to a Halloween party after their shift ended. They stopped at the Army/Navy store to see if they could find costumes but only had enough money to buy one pair of Army fatigues. One wore the top half and the other one wore the bottom half. They went as an upper and lower GI. Another medical resident simply wore slacks and a white T-shirt with a large 98.6 printed across the front. When someone finally asked what he was supposed to be, he replied, Im a temp. Haunting puns Girl ghosts go on diets so they can keep their ghoulish figures. The skeleton didnt dance at the Halloween party because he had no body to dance with. Witches think theyre funny because every time they look in the mirror, it cracks up. Draculas wife could never get to sleep because of his coffin. The game warden arrested the ghost because he didnt have a haunting license. The ghost repaired his sheet with a pumpkin patch. The doctor told the zombie to get some rest because he was dead on his feet. Witches dont like to ride their brooms when theyre angry because theyre afraid of flying off the handle. A boy carried a clock and a bird on Halloween. It was for tick or tweet. Last Halloween John really scared his brother. He went over to his house dressed as a job. Western Union opened an office in a graveyard so the spooks could send and receive crypt-o-grams. One witch told another witch, I want one of those new computers that has a spell checker. A ghost with a broken leg is called a hoblin goblin. People who play the stock market are happy on Halloween because its ticker treat night. The ghost of a door-todoor salesman is always a dead ringer. One Halloween a kid showed up at our door dressed as an IRS agent. It was very authentic. He took 40 percent of our candy. At the Halloween ball the ghosts danced sheet to sheet. Students think their school is haunted. The principal is always talking about the school spirit. Invisible troublesDont bother inviting the invisible man to your Halloween party. He wont show up. Sometimes he makes excuses, but theyre all transparent. You can see right through them. His mother and father were also invisible. They were trans-parents. When he was a teenager, he seldom hung out with his friends. There was simply too much disappear pressure. Whenever he tried to make a point with his friends, they just said, I dont see where youre coming from. Halloween nightDick and his wife, Jane, have heard tales about Halloween night in Oak Run when mountain lions wander in from the Green Way, coyotes howl and owls keep track of every moving thing by repeatedly asking who, who. We will certainly be staying indoors. Some haunting tales coming down Pun Alley P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank Celebrate this years holiday season with friends and loved ones while supporting conservation and tree planting with the help of the Arbor Day Foundation. Returning for the fifth season in a row, Give-A-Tree cards from the Arbor Day Foundation offer a unique holiday giving opportunity with conservation benefits that will endure for generations. For the first time this year, Give-A-Tree cards can be purchased individually and with customized text. Purchasing the Arbor Day Foundations specialty coffee helps preserve rain forests in Central and South America. The Foundations Specialty Coffee is shadegrown under the canopy of Latin American rain forests. Unlike sun-grown coffee plantations, this traditional shade-grown method gives the coffee a rich and delicious fl avor, while preventing the destruction of forestland. The Foundations Trees in Celebration program allows the giver to honor loved ones while supporting crucial conservation efforts. For each dollar donated, one tree is planted in a high-need forest, and recipients are given a certificate showing them where the trees were planted. By giving friends the gift of membership to the Arbor Day Foundation, recipients will also be sent 10 free trees, which will be shipped at the right time of year for planting. The holidays are a time for thinking about others, and as you do, take a moment to think about what you can do to protect the beauty and splendor of the Earth, said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. We encourage everyone to give gifts that will have a lasting impact for generations to come. To purchase holiday gifts that give back to the planet, visit arborday.org.

Friday, October 26, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com county commissioners Kathy Bryant and Stan McClain, and thanked the pair. He also recognized outgoing Congressman Cliff Stearns, U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent, who spoke to the crowd, and Ted Yoho, Republican candidate for Congress in the November election. He started by saying that we have a big choice to make this is not an ordinary election. He said the nation had to decide what kind of country were going to have into the next generation. Ryan noted that since the spring, President Obama was not telling people his plan for the next term. All he is offering is four more years of the same. Much of his conversation concerned Social Security and Medicare. He said the Democrats were taking $716 million from Medicare to pay for Obamacare. Ryan added that Obama was not offering a vision but was solely concentrating on dont elect Mitt. He said the president was trying to distract the country. Hes trying to win the election by default. Were not going to let him get away with that. Praising his running mate, he said, We have a real leader in Mitt, who is going to get this country back on track. He spoke a familiar saying, Government works for the people. Government doesnt run the people. Invoking the name of his mother, who became a small business owner after his father died, he spoke of retirement and Medicare. Theres a really clear choice. Nowhere is the difference more stark. Ryan said that Social Security and Medicare were promised in the past, but if we stay on this path, they become broken promises. He criticized the Obamacare board of 15 people whose job is to cut back Medicare each year. Fifteen people in Washington will get to say how it works. Surprisingly, he brought up a plan put together under President Bill Clinton, saying that there was a panel to give people choices. It would empower 50 million seniors to make choices for themselves, not 15 people in Washington. Questions included one on home schooling. We believe in freedom. You should have the freedom to do that. We believe in parents controlling their childs education. He said he wants to give control of education back to the states. Asked about jobs for women, he said Obama took his eye off the ball. Fewer women are working today than when he took office. He stated, Most women get their jobs from successful small businesses, and said government should stay out of the way of small business. Ryan spoke of the Social Security Trust Fund, saying that it would go bankrupt at the current rate in 2033. This was in response to a question about the Disability Trust Fund, which he said is going bankrupt now. Since 1968 weve been raiding the Social Security Trust Fund to pay for other programs. Now, he said, theres not enough to pay benefits. He said in 2033 there would be a 25 percent benefit cut. Every year you fail to confront the problem, it gets bigger. He emphasized, more than once, that for people 55 and older there would be no changes. He also said he didnt want to increase benefits for wealthy people by the same amount as for middle class people. After noting that people are living longer, he proposed that starting in 2022 the retirement age would go up a month every other year. Weve got to make sure Social Security keeps its promise. Knowing he was in the state that was one of the hearts of the space program, he was critical of military cuts which include NASA. If we want to send astronauts to the space station, we have to pay the Russians. That drew a loud chorus of boos from the audience. Asked about college costs, he said to the questioner, We want you to come out of college and into a job. He said that 50 percent of graduates are not working in their chosen field or not working at all. Ryan added that students were coming out of college with huge debts. He spoke of working three jobs when he graduated to pay off his loans, but added, they were loans I could afford. He said to students that your share of the debt is $51,000, and you havent even gotten out of school yet. In summary he said that the election provided a clear choice, stagnation or growth. He said Republicans are not going to run away from these problems. This is the most successful country in the history of this planet. Lets keep it that way. Ryans schedule called for a visit to Southwest Florida later in the day, then a rally with Romney in Daytona Beach at Biketoberfest.

M arion Landing was treated to a visit by the newest members of Marion County Sheriffs Office K-9 Unit. Deputy Colton Sullivan and his K-9 partner, Pyro, were at the Search Team meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 23. Pyro is an 18-month-old German Shepherd from Germany and is ATF certified. The team began K-9 school (a 480 hour course instructed by Lt. Jon Turner) in June 2012 and is now FDLE certified. Pyro was purchased with community donations which included the proceeds from Marion Landing Patrols very successful fundraiser held last October. The K-9 Unit supports all law enforcement activity and the community of Marion County, including apprehension of fleeing criminals, warrant searches, building and area searches, article searches, search and rescue, pursuits, illegal drug eradication, bomb searches, cadaver searches, and assisting patrol deputies on inprogress calls for service. Aside from their law enforcement duties, the K-9 teams visit schools, churches, and businesses to give demonstrations of their dogs abilities and to give the public a better understanding of what the team is utilized for. Our residents were thrilled to see Deputy Sullivan and Pyro in action, and we welcome them to the community.Board candidate nightOn Monday evening, Oct. 29, the candidates for the two open positions on our Marion Landing board of directors will be in the Lifestyle Center at 7 p.m. to tell you about themselves, their philosophy and why they would like to be on the board.

Decorating volunteers needed The sign-up sheet has been posted on the Activity Wall asking for volunteersFriday, October 26, 2012 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Y ears ago Halloween was strictly for childrens activities of dressing up in costumes and going from door to door for candy treats. Now, even adults get into the act wearing a costume and pretending to be other than what they really are. Halloween, next Wednesday, is our day for this. But our politicians do this every day, especially leading up to Election Day November 6. Our travel down Pun Alley take us to some haunts and ghostly stories for Halloween; but beware of the politicians who will continue their ghoulish activities for more than another week when you get to vote for the political joke of your choice. On Route 200 Rumors abound about a haunted house hidden in some trees on Route 200 and how everyone avoids it because of the ghost. Back some time ago an enterprising journalist decided to get the scoop by photographing the fearsome phantom. Late one night he entered the house armed with only his camera. The ghost immediately tried to scare him away. He told the ghost I mean no harm I just want your photograph. The ghost was quite happy at this chance to make the headlines, so he posed for a number of ghostly shots. When the happy journalist began developing the photos in his dark room they turned out to be black and underexposed. It seems that the spirit was willing but the flash was weak. Medical costumes Two medical residents were invited to a Halloween party after their shift ended. They stopped at the Army/Navy store to see if they could find costumes but only had enough money to buy one pair of Army fatigues. One wore the top half and the other one wore the bottom half. They went as an upper and lower GI. Another medical resident simply wore slacks and a white T-shirt with a large 98.6 printed across the front. When someone finally asked what he was supposed to be, he replied, Im a temp. Haunting puns Girl ghosts go on diets so they can keep their ghoulish figures. The skeleton didnt dance at the Halloween party because he had no body to dance with. Witches think theyre funny because every time they look in the mirror, it cracks up. Draculas wife could never get to sleep because of his coffin. The game warden arrested the ghost because he didnt have a haunting license. The ghost repaired his sheet with a pumpkin patch. The doctor told the zombie to get some rest because he was dead on his feet. Witches dont like to ride their brooms when theyre angry because theyre afraid of flying off the handle. A boy carried a clock and a bird on Halloween. It was for tick or tweet. Last Halloween John really scared his brother. He went over to his house dressed as a job. Western Union opened an office in a graveyard so the spooks could send and receive crypt-o-grams. One witch told another witch, I want one of those new computers that has a spell checker. A ghost with a broken leg is called a hoblin goblin. People who play the stock market are happy on Halloween because its ticker treat night. The ghost of a door-todoor salesman is always a dead ringer. One Halloween a kid showed up at our door dressed as an IRS agent. It was very authentic. He took 40 percent of our candy. At the Halloween ball the ghosts danced sheet to sheet. Students think their school is haunted. The principal is always talking about the school spirit. Invisible troublesDont bother inviting the invisible man to your Halloween party. He wont show up. Sometimes he makes excuses, but theyre all transparent. You can see right through them. His mother and father were also invisible. They were trans-parents. When he was a teenager, he seldom hung out with his friends. There was simply too much disappear pressure. Whenever he tried to make a point with his friends, they just said, I dont see where youre coming from. Halloween nightDick and his wife, Jane, have heard tales about Halloween night in Oak Run when mountain lions wander in from the Green Way, coyotes howl and owls keep track of every moving thing by repeatedly asking who, who. We will certainly be staying indoors. Some haunting tales coming down Pun Alley P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank Celebrate this years holiday season with friends and loved ones while supporting conservation and tree planting with the help of the Arbor Day Foundation. Returning for the fifth season in a row, Give-A-Tree cards from the Arbor Day Foundation offer a unique holiday giving opportunity with conservation benefits that will endure for generations. For the first time this year, Give-A-Tree cards can be purchased individually and with customized text. Purchasing the Arbor Day Foundations specialty coffee helps preserve rain forests in Central and South America. The Foundations Specialty Coffee is shadegrown under the canopy of Latin American rain forests. Unlike sun-grown coffee plantations, this traditional shade-grown method gives the coffee a rich and delicious fl avor, while preventing the destruction of forestland. The Foundations Trees in Celebration program allows the giver to honor loved ones while supporting crucial conservation efforts. For each dollar donated, one tree is planted in a high-need forest, and recipients are given a certificate showing them where the trees were planted. By giving friends the gift of membership to the Arbor Day Foundation, recipients will also be sent 10 free trees, which will be shipped at the right time of year for planting. The holidays are a time for thinking about others, and as you do, take a moment to think about what you can do to protect the beauty and splendor of the Earth, said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. We encourage everyone to give gifts that will have a lasting impact for generations to come. To purchase holiday gifts that give back to the planet, visit arborday.org.

If you are new to Cherrywood, you are cordially invited to come out for coffee and donuts and learn about your new community. Our Welcoming Committee offers a packet of information concerning not only the activities of Cherrywood but also various services offered by Marion County. Representatives of the various groups and committees will be there to answer questions and provide helpful hints to our new residents. This is an informal gettogether and offers people the opportunity to get to know their neighbors; learn about the functions and events we hold and learn too about how to save time and money in the area. If youve never attended one of these coffee hours, we urge you to make every effort to come out. Youll find it interesting and enlightening to say nothing of getting not only a free cup of coffee and snack, but a hearty handshake of welcome as well. Veterans Day celebrationSunday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m., the Cherrywood Veterans Club will hold its Veterans Day observance. The entire community is welcome to attend this special service honoring all of ourFriday, October 26, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com began to move and I froze. My life flashed before me in an instant which bored me almost to death. I never want to experience anything like that ever again. My focus once again went to the gentleman in motion. What was he going to do? Gradually he eased up to the bakery department. I almost stood, but at my height, I would be an easy target. Its hard for anyone to miss a barn door, especially one with a flashy smile. I braced myself for what would happen next. Then it happened. The elderly gentleman, with one last glance over his shoulder, bought a chocolate clair. I was confused relieved but confused. What was all the secrecy about? About this time, I saw him slither toward the bench where I was sitting. Without looking at me, the man sank into the corner as though hiding from someone. He sat there for a few minutes and then he opened his bag with the clair. Just as he took his first bite, someone recognized him, came up and said, Henry, is that a chocolate clair youre eating? He glanced at me and gave me one of those sick smiles that every husband recognizes. No matter how hard you try to keep something (like clairs) from your wife, it is impossible. There is a spiritual lesson here. No matter how hard you try to hide your sin, somewhere, somehow, when you least expect it, someone will see you. An Old Testament scripture lays down an important principle in this regard. But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the Lord: and be sure your sin will find you out. (Numbers 32:23 KJV.) David, the Psalmist, knew this and wrote, Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalm 139:23-24 KJV.) Live your life as though someone was watching you, because, Someone is watching you. Rev. James L.

U.S. Baseball Academy, which operates a national network of affordable hitting, pitching, catching, fielding and baserunning camps for players in grades 1 through 12, is pleased to announce the addition of Ocala Rotary Sportsplex to its lineup for the coming winter and spring. Registration is now under way at www.USBaseballAcademy.com. U.S. Baseball Academy's Spring Training 2013 is a unique concept that provides young players with advanced hitting, pitching, catching, fielding and baserunning training programs, instruction by the area's top coaches and fantastic facilities. The training sessions include six weeks of instruction for as low as $99. U.S. Baseball Academy's 2013 Spring Training program will be held at nearly 150 sites across the United States. The session in Ocala runs January 20 to February 24 at Ocala Rotary Sportsplex. Instructors will include a staff of the areas best coaches. With a player-coach ratio of 6 to 1, each player gets plenty of individual attention in a small-group atmosphere. In addition to unbeatable instruction by the area's best coaches, players get a preseason tune-up that helps them enter team practice in mid-season form. With numerous age-specific sessions, instruction is specially tailored for each ability level. Overall, it's the type of intense, professional instruction young players just can't get in a summer league. Since 1988, U.S. Baseball Academy has run hundreds of camps and clinics for thousands of players nationwide. Each week, hitters rotate through a series of supervised stations, including indoor batting cages, with each drill designed to teach a different aspect of hitting. Players enjoy participating in hitting games and unique stations used by top high school and college programs. The program is designed to improve pitch and strike zone recognition, timing, balance, power, situational hitting, bunting, and other aspects. Pitchers work under the supervision of coaches who can help with all aspects of pitching, from fundamentals and mechanics to more advanced concepts. Drills and repetition will improve a pitcher's speed and control. Our catcher's camp covers all aspects of being behind the plate. Players will get instruction on stance, signs, receiving, framing, blocking, throwing, fielding bunts, tags and the mental aspects of dealing with pitchers. Registration deadlines are approximately six weeks before each session begins, but last year's camps sold out much earlier. Because of the low player-coach ratio, spots in each session are limited. Complete details and times for each site, as well as registration forms, are available online at www.USBaseballAcademy.com or by phoning toll free 866-622-4487.

The last time it happened, I promised myself it would never happen again, as long as I lived. So much for my promises, or maybe I died. I found myself stranded at the neighborhood grocery store. I meant to put gas in my car, honest I did. Somehow, it slipped my mind. I do not mind things slipping my mind if they are not important, and if it does not involve the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Unfortunately for me, this did. I dont mind lectures from my Beloved, if I could sometimes pick the topic. Topics like religion and politics would be a nice change. Her topic, which she never tires of, is my forgetfulness. At least I cant remember any other topic at the moment. My car was definitely out of gas and I was going nowhere in it. My only recourse was to walk across the street to the store, and call my wife to come and bail me out of trouble. Every husband knows how difficult this is because we have to do it so often. I went to the phone booth in the store and made the call. Then I went and took a seat to wait for her arrival. As I was waiting, I noticed an elderly gentleman come into the store. I call him a gentleman, but these days, who knows? This man walked into the store as if he was concerned about being followed. Every few steps he threw a glance over his shoulder as if someone was stalking him. Since I did not have anything to do for the next 20 minutes, I settled back to watch. When he got into the store, he cautiously walked around the store as if casing it. So many stores are being robbed; I didnt know but this man was planning to pull off a heist. My interest piqued, which kept my mind off the trouble I was in with my wife when she arrived to pick me up. When a person is in trouble, it is always a good thing to try to take ones mind off said trouble, and on someone who might be in more trouble than you are at the moment. At least, thats what I told myself at the time. When a person is facing trouble, he will say anything to himself to calm those jagged nerves. The man walked around the store several times, always glancing over his shoulder as if he expected something to happen. As far as I could tell, he was an ordinary man with no special features. He walked with a slow shuffle, but thats to be expected when a mans body ages. I saw him stand over against a corner for several minutes while he intently watched the front door. A little spooked by this time, I did not know if I should alert the manager or call the police. I envisioned the headlines in the newspapers the next day: Local pastor dies a heros death in the crossfire. I sure would like to be a hero, but only in my own mind. This hero business can be a little dangerous, so I was in a quandary. In scanning the gentleman as best I could, I knew he could not have a large weapon on his person. The loose fitting shirt revealed no bomb strapped to his chest, which was a little comforting. Then the gentleman Be sure, your sin will find you out O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L.

The BNSF has made money every year of its century and a half existance. Often it took severe cutbacks in the expense column. That's what we did because we understood the main idea was to return a profit to the investors which, in turn, encouraged more in vestment. Now everybody wants clean air, water and renewable energy, so these companies are good ideas gone bad. From now on when a Democrat comes up with a good idea instead of putting a crony in charge, put a Republican in charge. Republicans understand Passion is not enough and Profit is not a swear word. Bill Riola Oak RunNelson has it right Having worked for the 92nd Congress and a Republican at that, I know members of Congress should show up for roll call votes as well as regular sessions. If they don't, it's called lazy and giving their constituents no representation. Now, in working for Congress it was for Congressman Delbert Latta, (R) from Bowling Green, Ohio. He was always there. No better man ever served in Congress. Now, Senator Nelson has been reporting on Representative Connie Mack's poor attendance in Congress and shirking his responsibilities to the people of his district in Florida. If one were to research the issue, you will find that Senator Nelson is right on the mark. During 2012, Representative Mack has only showed up only 178 times, and has not showed up to vote on 25 of the last 27 votes. In other words his constituents have had Empty Chair Representation. Plus during his last seven years in office, he's had only one bill passed and the president who signed that bill was President Obama. Now, I have to ask. For anyone working in private industry, would you keep them on the payroll. I think no, I know I wouldn't. It's as though Connie Mack is a clone of Mitt Romney, spending all of his time away from Congress. A lot of Republicans have been doing just that. During this same time in 2012, Senator Nelson has missed only one (1) vote. Pretty darn good. I had the pleasure of meeting Senator Nelson four years ago, when he was in Ocala with the now Vice President Joe Biden. In fact, when I went to work for Congressman Latta, it was at the same time Joe Biden went to Congress, and our then State Senator, Lawton Chiles went to the U.S. Senate and went on to become, in later years, one of our great governors. Now I ask you, is that a great group or not. Just remember, who's telling the truth when you vote. Maybe Connie Mack and Mitt Romney should be in the private sector. Romney's already in a very, very private sector. In just what country we don't know. Bill Ford Ocala Vote for the right reasonIt's nearly time to vote for our next president. This election will be the most important one ever. The choice we make will determine the future of America: President Obama's socialist-like government, or Mitt Romney's constitutional republic. 1. By selecting Obama's way, our control of America's future will be taken from us and replaced by Obama's socialist-initiative. Many small businesses will disappear. Joblessness will increase even more. Taxes on the middle-class will get higher. The real estate and stock markets will again plummet. Individualism, and selfrespect will become nearly nonexistent. America will no longer be the major power it once was. Our Constitution and our God will be cast aside. 2. By selecting Romney's way, America's future will be determined by We, the People. We will begin the rebuilding process to get America back on the proven path. We will take pride in our achievements and our individualism. We will govern America based on our Constitution ... as intended, and reinstate God as the principle reason for our existence. You may plan to vote for a choice other than one of the two above. For example: he has a better personality or, his wife wears nicer clothes or, I'm a Democrat/Republican so I'll vote that line. Instead, you must decide on which of the above two you choose as your children's, and their children's future. This election is much too important to make any choice other than one of the two described above. Joe OHara Ocala A note to the president Dear President Obama: A challenge to a debate!!! Topic: Mental diversity, and redistribution. We have diversity of every stripe, what about mental diversity? Prove to citizens that a person with an I.Q. of 60 is going to become a doctor, or lawyer, or CEO, even if a trillion dollars is spent on the effort. Never going to happen. It should not be your decision to tell everyone they can and should go to college. Why waste money? So many graduates walk out the door with little knowledge to show for all the effort, and expense. They might have a lot of indoctrination, and propaganda, which does not count as education. Mental capacity is GOD given, and cannot be redistributed. Never. Speaking of redistribution: You have accomplished 5 trillion of that, to what avail? What do we have to show for all that spending? Not only have you redistributed the wealth of the nation, but, you have distributed my wealth (as little as it is), as well. It appears the standard of living has become inverted. When the poor stand in line with two carts they can hardly push stacked to the ceiling, and I am behind with my pathetic 2 or 3 items. I have had to weigh whether I can afford those 2 or 3 items. Then when you proceed to the parking lot, the poor are loading their purchases into cars, newer and better than many of my family, and friends. When and where does the redistribution LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 stop? That is not what Jesus had in mind when he exhorted us to help the poor. Jesus never said give them a standard of living equal to, or better than yours. Both Occupy Wall Street, and The Tea Party agree that there are those who seek unfair advantage to money and power, but we disagree on the solution. OWS wants to dismantle our system of government. The Tea Party wants to fix what is wrong. The unjust, unconstitutional laws these power lusters manipulated into law. Repeal them. Keep our system, best ever devised by mankind. This is the latest chapter in the good vs. evil scenario. When will we ever be able to stop the next holocaust? There is always the next generations power lusters. When will we learn???? Does anyone think mental diversity should be a criteria deserving of consideration? D.I. Larson Ocala Ocala WestEvangelist, author and scholar Rev.

This new exemption, if approved by the voters, will take effect on January 1, 2013, and apply to the 2013 tax roll and subsequent tax rolls. (2) Authorize a county or municipality for the purpose of its respective levy, and as provided by general law, to provide tangible personal property tax exemptions by ordinance. This is in addition to other statewide tangible personal property tax exemptions provided by the Constitution and this amendment. Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment will give tax relief to small businesses and help stimulate the economy. They say it provides a way for local governments to offer further reductions in the business tax. Arguments against:Opponents say this amendment is part of a trickle-down economic theory that does not work. They say it will strip millions in tax revenue from local governments struggling to provide basic services.Should the states tangible personal property tax exemption be doubled?This proposed amendment is about taxes assessed on tangible personal property used in a business or to earn income. Furniture, fixtures, machinery, tools, shelving, signs and equipment are examples of property that is subject to the states tangible personal property tax. By April 1 of each year, those owning tangible personal property that is used in a business or to earn income must file a return with the local property appraiser. Under current law, the first $25,000 of tangible personal property is exempt from taxation. If passed, Amendment 10 would boost that exemption to $50,000. It would also allow cities and counties to grant additional tangible personal tax exemptions beyond the $50,000 exemption. The measure won unanimous approval in the Senate and near-unanimous approval in House. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved by voters, the added exemption becomes effective Jan. 1, 2013. Fiscal Impact Tangible personal property taxes are levied by counties and by cities. Citing information from the state Department of Revenue, a Florida Senate analysis said 7.6 percent of the total county property taxes levied in Florida in fiscal year 2011-12 were from tangible personal property taxes. The corresponding amount for cities was 6.1 percent. Those percentages would likely decrease if Amendment 10 passes. Statewide, the additional exemption (from $25,000 to $50,000) proposed in Amendment 10 would reduce property tax collections across the state by a combined $61 million over its first three years, according to the state Revenue Estimating Conference, which calculates the anticipated fiscal impact of proposed amendments. The law also allows for counties and cities to expand the exemptions, but the fiscal impact of that proposed change cannot be estimated. Title on Ballot: Tangible Personal Property Tax Exemption Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would double the tangible personal property tax exemption and allow local governments to increase the exemption. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you want to double the tangible personal property tax exemption and allow cities and counties to expand the exemptions beyond that. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not want to double the tangible personal property tax exemption and you do not want to allow cities and counties to expand the exemptions. Early voting starts this weekend Amendment 11Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site): Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to authorize the Legislature, by general law and subject to conditions set forth in the general law, to allow counties and municipalities to grant an additional homestead tax exemption equal to the assessed value of homestead property if the property has a just value less than $250,000 to an owner who has maintained permanent residency on the property for not less than 25 years, who has attained age 65, and who has a low household income as defined by general law.Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment will benefit elderly residents on fixed incomes. They say the property tax discount can help with medical bills and may allow more elderly residents to stay in their homes as they age. Arguments against:Opponents say state and local governments face mounting budget shortfalls in part because of diminished property tax returns. Schools and local governments need to maintain the tax base. Should cities and counties be allowed to grant a full property tax exemption to certain low-income seniors?Amendment 11 authorizes cities and counties to grant full homestead property tax relief to low-income seniors who have lived in their home for at least 25 years. In short, it would allow local governments to eliminate the entire property tax bill for qualifying seniors. Homeowners who meet the following requirements would be eligible: 1) aged 65 and older; 2) have a household income of less than $27,030; 3) own a home with a market value of less than $250,000; 4) have lived in the home for at least 25 years. City councils and county commissions must pass the exemption by a super-majority vote before the full exemption can be offered. The measure won unanimous support in the Senate and House. There is no organized opposition. As with all amendments, passage requires approval by 60 percent or more of the voters. If passed, cities and counties would be authorized to grant the exemption beginning Jan. 8, 2013. HistoryVoters in 1998 approved a measure that authorized the Legislature to allow cities and counties to grant a homestead exemption up to $25,000 to seniors over 65 whose household income (at the time of the bills passage) did not exceed $24,200. That homestead exemption was in addition to the $50,000 in exemptions extended to all Florida homeowners. Schools taxes are excluded from the tax break. In 2012, state lawmakers passed a measure to place on the November ballot a proposed amendment authorizing cities and counties to grant a full homestead exemption to qualifying seniors. It became Amendment 11 on the ballot. Fiscal Impact The state estimates that the combined tax revenues schools and local governments would lose if Amendment 11 passes, and if every city and county in the state were to approve the exemption, would be a combined $18.5 million over the first two years it was offered. Title on Ballot: Additional Homestead Exemption; Low-Income Seniors Who Maintain Long-Term Residency on Property; Equal to Assessed Value Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would give an additional property tax exemption to low-income seniors who have lived in their home for more than 25 years. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you think cities and counties should have the authority to grant a full property tax discount to eligible seniors. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not think that cities and counties should have the authority to grant a full property tax discount to eligible seniors. 000D07D Cleanmaster CLEANMASTER CARPET & UPHOLSTERY CLEANING Servicing All Of Citrus & Marion County For 25 Years 489-4844 O W N E R D O E S T H E W O R K We Also Have Outdoor Pressure Cleaning Available.

It remains apparent that he is not running on his record but continues to promote class warfare and fear, especially among us seniors. Nothing should take the place of looking at where we are today, our deficit, unemployment, the record number in poverty and on food stamps. Our economy hasnt been this bad since the great depression and this hurts everybody. We cant continue on this downward spiral for there are fewer jobs today than there were four years ago! The only way our situation will improve is by having more citizens finding jobs in our private sector, and I know of no one who is better qualified for creating jobs than Romney. Job creation is his number one priority and he has the track record to prove his success as a businessman. He will quickly turn our economy around because he not only knows what needs to be done, he knows how to do it. He will not harm our Social Security or Medicare, so stop worrying about that. He wants to be sure its there for several generations, not just us. By the time this letter is printed, we should know most of the details regarding the murder of our ambassador and the three other men in our embassy. If the truth reveals a cover up to the magnitude the evidence is now indicating, we have a problem that is much larger than Watergate. Billy Graham and many of our other clergy are publically stating concerns they have about Americas direction, asking us to be true to our God and to seek his will in this election. Think and pray before you vote. May God continue to bless America. Wayne Rackley Ocala Inflammatory letterNever before has an election produced such inflammatory letters to The Editor as the current one. Yes, there are serious questions that must be answered, however they must be answered with accurate and appropriate information. In the current issue of the South Marion Citizen one letter was completely, totally inaccurate and devoid of factual information regarding Presidential Executive Orders as signed by President Barack H. Obama. First and foremost, executive orders are and must be for the enforcement of statutes of record and cannot create new laws. Executive orders have been used since our esteemed first presidentGeorge Washington. Second, the EO Numbers are from President John F. Kennedy (10990-11005) President Lyndon B. Johnson (11310) and President Gerald Ford (11921). Third, the number of orders signed by President Obama as of October 15, 2012 is 140, none of them have any reference to the subjects quoted. Fourth, before making assertions that are of dubious character, some research should be completedi.e. Snopes.com, Nationalarchive.gov are just two of the most reputable and trustworthy sites. Bigotry and prejudice have no place in the political arena. Let's endeavour to omit such from our daily lives and commit to honest and open discussion based on our informed opinions as the course America should take in the future. Finally, do not be taken in by half truths. Learn for ourselves and from history, particularly the 3-30 years, ascertaining the facts and interpreting them with open mind. Wilmer Wakeley Ocala Executive ordersThe article about executive orders in the recent issue of the Citizen has so many errors and misinformation that someone needs to call the writer out on the outrageous claims he is making concerning the issuance of executive orders by the president. He starts off by saying the president has issued 923 executive orders over the 3 1/2 years of his presidency. Wrong!! As of Oct. 15, 2012, Obama has signed 140 executive orders. Ronald Reagan issued 409, the elder Bush 149 and George W. Bush 288. Google snopes.com for the info. Next he cites several orders he claims will take away power and freedom from we the people. His exact words. The executive order he is referring to is nothing more than a restatement of policy that has been in place for decades and grants no authority to the president or the Cabinet that they don't already have under existing law. None of these items revisited claim authority to seize private property and place them at the personal disposal of Obama. The original EO was issued in 1939 and has been superseded or changed a number of times without any fanfair. Why the update? The big change deals with the Cabinet itself since there was not a Dept. of Homeland Security at the time and most duties dealing with defense preparedness in times of national emergency were handled by FEMA, the same folks that now concern themselves with hurricanes, flood, fires. So what this all boils down to is an amending of the Defense Production Act which has been in effect since the Truman administration and which authorizes the president, any president Republican or Democrat, to direct private business to allocate resources to national defense as needed in a time of national emergency in much the same way that rationing was implemented during World war II. Nothing more, nothing less Fritz Lauer Oak RunDont believe everythingReaders, please, please, please, do not believe everything you read, particularly letters to the editor of the South Marion Citizen written by regular conservative contributors. A most recent submission in the Oct. 19 edition is a wonderful example. The writer obviously accepts without any research or fact-checking (oops, sorry for the offensive language!) e-mails and blogs that are consistent with anti-Obama beliefs. In this case, the claim is that President Obama has issued 923 executive orders while his predecessor issued only 62, with 10 examples of numbered orders listed that, in words or the contributor, "definitely take away power and freedom from we the people!" And yes, the descriptions of these orders do seem like they would do just that. But once again pesky facts come into play. According to numerous government, fact-checking and other non-partisan sources on the internet, Obama has actually issued 139 executive orders, and Bush issued 290. And the 10 examples listed? All issued by JFK in 1962, and none even remotely related to the descriptions described in the letter to the editor! One wonders how the letter writer's source could have made this "mistake." I'll be waiting for the letters blaming Obama for the small Social Security increase and the increase in Medicare premiums... Bill Tetzlaff Ocala Green company brokeThis week another of President Obamas Green companies went broke. That makes 8 or 10 at a cost to taxpayers over a billion dollars. It occurs to me we only hear about these companies twice. When they start up and when they fail. So why does this happen over and over? It is simple. No accountability. I retired from the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad. One third of my career was in planning. Planning was simple. First you estimate income. Then you estimate cost. (It's called a budget) The difference is what you return to the investors. In most cases it is stock holders, in others (a category BNSF now belongs) it is direct investors.

Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site): Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to replace the president of the Florida Student Association with the chair of the council of state university student body presidents as the student member of the Board of Governors of the State University System and to require that the Board of Governors organize such council of state university student body presidents. Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment guarantees every university has a chance to have their student body president be named as a representative of the Board of Governors. Arguments against:Opponents say this amendment is unnecessary.Should the state change the way the student representative on the university systems Board of Governors is selected?Amendment 12 concerns the student representative on the Board of Governors, which oversees the states university system. The Board of Governors has 17 members, one of which is the chairman of the Florida Student Association (FSA). If passed, Amendment 12 would instruct the Board of Governors to create a new council consisting of the student body presidents of the states 12 universities. The chair of that new council would replace the chair of the FSA as the student representative to the Board of Governors. This measure won unanimous approval in the House and near unanimous approval in the Senate. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the votes. If approved by the voters, it would go into effect on Jan. 8, 2013. HistoryIn 2002, roughly 60 percent of Floridas voters approved a constitutional amendment creating a Board of Governors to oversee state universities. Three of its 17 members are seated by virtue of position and 14 are appointed by the governor and subject to confirmation by the Florida Senate. The appointed members serve sevenyear terms. The three members seated by virtue of position are the Florida Education Commissioner, the chair of the Advisory Council of Faculty Senates (representing university faculty), and the chair of the FSA (representing university students). Student body presidents from the states various universities comprise the FSA, which charges membership dues. Over the years, several universities chose not pay the dues and participate in the FSA. As a result their representatives in those years could not have been the student representative on the Board of Governors. The Board of GovernorsBroadly speaking, the Board of Governors oversees the operation of the states 12 universities. It defines the mission of each university, submits annual budgets to the Legislature, governs degree programs and oversees admissions programs, among other duties. The FSA The Florida Student Association formed in 1976 as a not-for-profit research and advocacy group representing university students. A year later the Florida Legislature provided student representation on the Board of Regents (forerunner of the Board of Governors), and in 1978 secured voting rights for the student member of the Regents. A priority of the FSA is keeping tuition increases to a minimum. Over the years it has been involved in efforts to reduce teacher-student ratios and increase voter participation among students, and an advocate for the states pre-paid college program and the Bright Futures Scholarship Program. Its mission is to advocate the interests of the state university students at all levels of government. Friday, October 26, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com B ased on insider experiences in presidential campaigns, Republican Mary Matalin and Democrat James Carville answered our question in the title of their book on the subject: Alls Fair: Love, War, and Running for President. Their expertise is enhanced by their political mixed marriage and their familiarity with the movers and shakers of party politics. For his re-election theme song, President Obama added fairness to his signature messages of hope and change: I want an America where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules. Fairness is a vague ideal whose absence has aggravated most of us to exclaim at one time or another. Thats not fair! Though its unknown yet whether Mr. Obamas call for fairness has been a successful campaign slogan, it did prompt Time Magazine to invite a commentary titled The New Culture War over Fairness from Professor Johathon Haidt of the New York University School of Business. According to Professor Haidt, our political parties and their presidential candidates believe in fairness but disagree about what kind of fairness is fair. There are any number of fairnesses. Theres proportional fairwww.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, October 26, 2012 W hen a top political candidate comes to visit your area, its a public relations boon, especially when someone like vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan opens his comments by saying what great Florida weather he was experiencing. But Ryans visit to Ocala last week has me thinking of some things, just coming up with some questions without answers. So let me present some of those to you. Was the square the best place to hold this rally? In the middle of a workday? Other people and I have thought of several better places, such as Booster Stadium, the Livestock Pavilion, Veterans Memorial Park, etc. Why was it necessary to close off the streets so early? Ryan wasnt scheduled until noon, but the Boulevard was closed at about 7 a.m. (photographer Ron Ratner got a great picture for us of the closed street). People who didnt know could have been late for work, children could have been late for school, etc. Would it have hurt to wait, say, until 8:30. Did businesses in and around the square gain or lose customers because of the event? Then there was the security. Congressman Cliff Stearns walks around Ocala unencumbered any time he feels like it. Congressman Paul Ryan has a security detail that would make a Third World country proud. Ryan is a candidate, but hasnt been elected yet. Wouldnt a smaller detail do? Did we really need G-men with automatic weapons (someone called them tommy guns) at both the airport and downtown? Did we really need all those security people on the rooftops? And speaking of the airport, was it necessary, or even legal, for these security people to stop photographers from taking pictures outside? In fact, at first they wanted to stop all pictures, anywhere. This is our airport, folks, our rules. If you dont like it, stay in Washington. Why do they call it the Secret Service? Whats so secret about the only people in suits, with their little pin on the lapel and their little earpiece? Hopefully, there were other agents blending in in the crowd who didnt advertise their position. To me, these would be the most effective security personnel. How about the TSA? TSA stands for Transportation Security Administration. The mission, according to the TSA website, is TSA has established guiding principles to maintain the security of the traveling public and continuously set the standard for excellence in transportation security. So was the use of the TSA to conduct security on the square the proper use of the agency? The only transporting being done there was people walking because they had to park so far away. Ive gone to sporting events where you have to go through security. It seems they could have done just as well in providing security. And finally, the big question. Whos paying for all of this, especially all the extra work that local people, including law enforcement, had to do? Please tell me it was the Republican National Committee or some such group, and not the taxpayers of Marion County. Even with all these questions, we thank the Republicans for helping the nation hear about Ocala, and we praise all those who conducted the event and made things run smoothly. And I guess everything is relative. I would have loved to see the crowd limits during Biketoberfest in Daytona Beach when both Romney and Ryan arrived the following day.

T oday we come to the end of the list of amendments, and if it took this long to go through them, just think of what the lines will be like on Election Day if you arent prepared or havent voted early. Amendment 10 is a Tangible Personal Property Exemption, which increases the tax exemption on personal property for businesses from $25,000 to $50,000. This is another one of those that could hurt the local government by taking away valuable tax dollars for schools, law enforcement, etc. Were sure that some businessmen think this is a good idea, but smaller businesses may not have enough to worry about it. In other words, this is one that protects the bigger businesses from paying more taxes. As we go through these amendments, we see a constant theme of cutting taxes without any way to make up for the lost revenue. So for this one, were saying vote no. The same argument applies to Amendment 11. The title says Additional Homestead Exemption for Low Income Seniors who Maintain Long Term Residency on Property, Equal to Assessed Valuation. This would give counties and cities the right to grant full homestead exemption to seniors who have lived in their homes for at least 25 years and whose home is less than $250,000. Income must be below $27,000. Again, this sounds good at first blush, but how many low-income seniors do you know who live in a home worth $250,000. This is another hit the counties and cities would take in tax revenue, mainly in other parts of the state, and we cant see any reason to approve it here. Finally, Amendment 12 concerns the appointment of a student body president to the Board of Governors of the State University System. If youve been here a while, you remember the old Board of Regents. In our wisdom we disbanded that for a board of governors and set the standards for choosing members. This would change the way one member, a student representative, is chosen. It seems like an awful lot of paperwork for one person. Frankly, were a little old fashioned on this one. We still feel that you have the faculty and administrators and trustees (board of governors) over here, and the students over there. Why should students be on the board at all? And since theres only one, is that just a token representative so we can say that the students have a voice? This is too much to worry about in a serious election. Just vote no on this one. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY The end of the amendments A nice visit, but whos paying for it? Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Alls fair in love and war: How about politics? Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED ness in which benefits should equal contributions. Equal fairness means same benefits to everyone, regardless of contributions. And theres procedural fairness, which means fair rules as to who gets what. Presidential candidates and their parties may warm up to one kind of fairness for a short time. Then depending on how the political winds are blowing, they may suddenly champion a different concept of fair play. Politics and politicians are fickle. If you dont remember the Fairness Doctrine, it was a 1950s rule of the Federal Communications Commission which directed television networks to provide air time for opposing views on issues of public importance. The unspoken threat in the Doctrine was that the big three television networks CBS, NBC, ABC would have to explain appearances of one-sidedness when they applied to renew their broadcast licenses. At the time, conservatives thought the doctrine was a fair idea. The Fairness Doctrine was repealed in 1987, during the Reagan administration. Even though the doctrine had received an OK from the Supreme Court, Reagan and his successor, the first President Bush, disliked that brand of fairness. When Democrats took back control of Congress during the first two years of the Obama administration, the Fairness Doctrine looked like an inviting way to put pins in the balloons of right-wing radio talk shows, which were slamming President Obamas stimulus program. The possibility that the doctrine would be revived caused conservatives to howl: Not fair. President Obama didnt think reinstating the Fairness Doctrine was a good idea either, so Congress let it drift back into obscurity. Seasoned and successful campaigner that he is, Mr. Obama apparently decided a vague campaign call for fair shots, fair shares, and fair rules would be more appealing to voters. Thats smart campaigning. Depending on the election outcome, Republicans may end up wondering why they didnt campaign on fair taxation, fair health care, fair energy, and fair immigration no details, just hope and change. It worked for Mr. Obama, and may work again. Editors note: To avoid any last-minute attack letters that cant be answered, today will be the last day that letters about the election will be published. Retraction of Executive OrdersInformation on the above which was in the last letter I sent to this paper was erroneous. The reliable sources that provided me the particulars on these orders were given incorrect information which hasnt happened previously, and I apologize for this error.

Friday, October 26, 2012 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good time to speak out on a difficult situation. Youre known for your honesty, so people will listen and, perhaps, begin to make long-needed changes. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovines sharp business sense alerts you to question the positions of those trying to push the Bull into a deal. Demand to see proof of what they profess. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your quick thinking helps you get out of a troubling situation that was suddenly thrust upon you. Later on, you can expect to learn more about why it happened. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel youve dotted all your is and crossed all your ts regarding that upcoming deal. But there might be some facts youve ignored. Check again. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Time for the Lion to be more physically active. It will help shake off any lingering Leonine lethargy and restore your energy levels, so youll be prepared for what lies ahead. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Helping those in need at this time is laudable. But dont ignore your own needs, especially where it concerns your health. A medical checkup is a wise move. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Good news: Your outspoken views about a controversial on-the-job situation could find unexpectedly strong support from a most unlikely workplace faction. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might have to draw on your reservoir of spiritual strength to help someone special through a difficult time. Your loving attitude makes all the difference. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your proven leadership qualities make you the perfect person to take on an important workplace task. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Although some compromise might need to be reached regarding your stand on an important issue, youll still be able to get the most crucial points across. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A chance to make a career change carries both positive and uncertain possibilities. Best advice: Check it out thoroughly and dont be rushed into a decision. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Youre still a staunch supporter of one side of an important issue. But be prepared to deal with new information that could cause you to question your current stand. BORN THIS WEEK: Youre perceptive and quick to act when you sense that someone needs help. You are an always-dependable friend. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

LOSERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 CEP CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 SLEEP TOWARD HEAVEN By Amanda Eyre WardHeres a quick read and I mean it; you can finish it in an afternoon. Its about three womens intersecting lives although they have little in common. Some readers may predict the ending but others will find it surprising. In Gatestown, Texas, 29year-old Karen Lowes, a serial killer, awaits her execution. In Manhattan Dr. Franny Wren longs to escape her suffocating life and her mismatched fianc. In Austin, Texas beautiful Celia Mills struggles to find life meaningful again after the murder of her beloved husband. All three embark on a painful journey involving the meaning of life, death, and forgiveness. Just months before her scheduled wedding Franny Wren is poised to flee Manhattan for her native Texas but wonders if change will really make a difference: When do you stop trusting the instinct to run? When do you accept that you will never feel at home, no matter where you go? When do you make yourself stay? Meanwhile, on Death Row Karen awaits her execution in the company of other murderersjaded, embittered women still protesting their innocence. Conditions are horrible: a TV blares constantly, doors slam open and shut, women scream and yell and bang their cell bars with trays. Every two days or so they are stripsearched. Ward does an excellent job of researching Huntsville, the prison system and the death sentence and without any pious sermonizing. Along the way she does some heavy lifting from news media. Karens crimes and personal life, for instance, are taken straight from Aileen Wuornos story. Still another inmate has a story very much like that of Darlie Routier, the woman convicted of stabbing her two small sons while her husband slept upstairs. Declaring her innocence she believes the conviction was Quick, powerful story about two women B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington PLEASESEEBOOK PAGE30 the result of a misguided birthday party over the graves of her children, complete with balloons and silly string. Each chapter in Sleep Toward Heaven develops the perspective of one of the three damaged women. The writing is spare and powerful and compellingly written. BOOK CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 Workforce Connection of Citrus, Levy and Marion counties cautions jobseekers to be alert for scammers usurping the names of legitimate businesses and organizations to take advantage of those looking for work. Workforce Connection CEO Rusty Skinner said that the regional workforce board decided to issue the warning after hearing about the problem from other workforce boards. In Panama City, he said, the Gulf Coast Workforce Board recently reported scammers posted jobs on the Employ Florida Marketplace luring jobseekers who, when they responded, were instructed to send money in advance for required job training. Scammers are unscrupulous, clever and are often very good at what they do, Skinner said. It is unconscionable that these imposters are taking money from people who are diligently seeking employment. The Employ Florida Marketplace, or EFM, is the states premier online job bank and used by all 24 regional workforce boards. Even though EFM posts scamming warnings on nearly every page, Skinner said that when someone is searching for work and finds what appears to be a promising job, its easy to get excited and let your guard down. Skinner noted that so far there have been no reports of similar employment scams in Citrus, Levy and Marion counties.

John Messeroll Ocala John Messeroll, loved husband and best friend of wife, Terri and beloved father of five children, died peacefully in his sleep Sunday morning, Oct. 7, 2012. The children, John Messeroll and wife Bonnie, Jeff Messeroll and Sandi Mangino, Jim Messeroll and Karen Jervic, Merrie and Mike Chasan, Kerrin and Don Ancrun, and their families, all live in New Jersey. John leaves six cherished grandchildren, Nicole and Kelsie Chasan, Jack and Alyse Messeroll, Tagg Ancrum and Kai Messeroll, and two cherished step grandchildren, Erica Ward (newly married to Joe Ward) and Conor Jervic. A graduate of Rutgers University, John attended Rutgers law school. He was director of Purchasing and Acquisitions with Harper and Row Publishers 5th Avenue, NYC. He left H&R to become CEO of Princeton Archives and later CEO of Delta Group. John had an entrepreneurial spirit and developed a variety of businesses. He was owner/developer of Princeton Consortium and Community Pride Publications in Princeton, N.J. The Consortium published small books, trade magazines, directories, educational guides, sports, health bulletins, medical monthly newsletters, elementary teachers guides etc., for libraries, businesses, coaches, schools and colleges including Tufts University, Princeton University, Johnson and Johnson Medical Health. Community Pride Publishing House was best known for its New Jersey and Pennsylvania area guide lifestyle magazines including Middlesex, Monmouth, Somerset, Atlantic Counties, Princeton, New Brunswick, New Hope, Bucks County, Pa., and others. He was proud of his award winning Pa. Fortune magazine. He was very active in the community and church. John was in various organizations, National Publishers Association, AIP NAP He sat on the board of directors of Princeton Chamber of Commerce, New Brunswick Chamber of Commerce, Alpha Pregnancy Center of Princeton and New Hope Pennsylvania. He was a philanthropic and caring man. The sign over his desk stated his priorities and guide for living. It read God ~ Family ~ Country. When Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, John and Terri went to help as volunteers. There John accepted a job working for Homeland Security, NSA and Fema Recovery, while Terri worked with Red Cross and later Catholic Intercity Mission. John retired to Ocala, Fla., in December 2006, but in a few months was reactivated back to New Mexico and Louisiana. His contract extended until he recently retired in July 2012. He was requested back for a 30-day temporary emergency DEA assignment and he returned to New Orleans for this deployment just weeks ago. He decided that this would be his last assignment and obviously God was in agreement. With retirement imminent John jokingly said he could now finish law school and try to decipher some of Floridas unique legalities. Our hearts are full of sorrow, yet we rejoice knowing that our dear one is with our Lord and Savior ~and his Heavenly Father. John is cherished and already deeply missed. Funeral Mass and services will be in New Jersey. There will be a memorial service in our adopted Crescent City, New Orleans, and here in Florida at a later date.

A health fair and seminar sessions will continue through the afternoon. Hannah Curlee will share her inspiring story of life-changing weight loss and help others recognize how they too can achieve weight loss and healthy living goals. Curlee is half the woman she used to be or 51.6 percent of her former self, to be exact. Curlee and her sister, Olivia Ward, were the top two finishers on Season 11 of NBCs The Biggest Loser reality show. By the shows end, Curlee had dropped from 248 pounds to 128, a 120-pound loss. For viewers, the transformation was startling. For Curlee, it was life altering. We are thrilled that Hannah is visiting Ocala and participating in an event directed at helping the women of greater Marion County make more informed decisions about their healthcare, said Ginger Carroll, CEO of Ocala Healths West Marion Community Hospital. Women are the primary decision makers when it comes to the health and well-being of their family. Whether it concerns their children, husbands, parents, themselves, possibly even friends or neighbors, women carefully weigh the healthcare choices they have to make. This forum will offer attendees access to a number of resources in a variety of medical specialties, Carroll added. During the health fair, attendees will have an opportunity to speak one-on-one with clinical specialists in cardiovascular disease, orthopedics, bariatric surgery, diabetes, nutrition, diagnostic imaging, neuroscience, and womens health.

After addressing the crowd, Ryan, running mate for former Gov.

One of the questioners praised him for not using a Teleprompter.

John Messeroll OcalaJohn Messeroll, loved husband and best friend of wife, Terri and beloved father of five children, died peacefully in his sleep Sunday morning, Oct. 7, 2012. The children, John Messeroll and wife Bonnie, Jeff Messeroll and Sandi Mangino, Jim Messeroll and Karen Jervic, Merrie and Mike Chasan, Kerrin and Don Ancrun, and their families, all live in New Jersey. John leaves six cherished grandchildren, Nicole and Kelsie Chasan, Jack and Alyse Messeroll, Tagg Ancrum and Kai Messeroll, and two cherished step grandchildren, Erica Ward (newly married to Joe Ward) and Conor Jervic. A graduate of Rutgers University, John attended Rutgers law school. He was director of Purchasing and Acquisitions with Harper and Row Publishers 5th Avenue, NYC. He left H&R to become CEO of Princeton Archives and later CEO of Delta Group. John had an entrepreneurial spirit and developed a variety of businesses. He was owner/developer of Princeton Consortium and Community Pride Publications in Princeton, N.J. The Consortium published small books, trade magazines, directories, educational guides, sports, health bulletins, medical monthly newsletters, elementary teachers guides etc., for libraries, businesses, coaches, schools and colleges including Tufts University, Princeton University, Johnson and Johnson Medical Health. Community Pride Publishing House was best known for its New Jersey and Pennsylvania area guide lifestyle magazines including Middlesex, Monmouth, Somerset, Atlantic Counties, Princeton, New Brunswick, New Hope, Bucks County, Pa., and others. He was proud of his award winning Pa. Fortune magazine. He was very active in the community and church. John was in various organizations, National Publishers Association, AIP, NAP He sat on the board of directors of Princeton Chamber of Commerce, New Brunswick Chamber of Commerce, Alpha Pregnancy Center of Princeton and New Hope Pennsylvania. He was a philanthropic and caring man. The sign over his desk stated his priorities and guide for living. It read God ~ Family ~ Country. When Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, John and Terri went to help as volunteers. There John accepted a job working for Homeland Security, NSA and Fema Recovery, while Terri worked with Red Cross and later Catholic Intercity Mission. John retired to Ocala, Fla., in December 2006, but in a few months was reactivated back to New Mexico and Louisiana. His contract extended until he recently retired in July 2012. He was requested back for a 30-day temporary emergency DEA assignment and he returned to New Orleans for this deployment just weeks ago. He decided that this would be his last assignment and obviously God was in agreement. With retirement imminent John jokingly said he could now finish law school and try to decipher some of Floridas unique legalities. Our hearts are full of sorrow, yet we rejoice knowing that our dear one is with our Lord and Savior ~and his Heavenly Father. John is cherished and already deeply missed. Funeral Mass and services will be in New Jersey. There will be a memorial service in our adopted Crescent City, New Orleans, and here in Florida at a later date.

LOSERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 CEPCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 SLEEP TOWARD HEAVEN By Amanda Eyre WardHeres a quick read and I mean it; you can finish it in an afternoon. Its about three womens intersecting lives although they have little in common. Some readers may predict the ending but others will find it surprising. In Gatestown, Texas, 29year-old Karen Lowes, a serial killer, awaits her execution. In Manhattan Dr. Franny Wren longs to escape her suffocating life and her mismatched fianc. In Austin, Texas beautiful Celia Mills struggles to find life meaningful again after the murder of her beloved husband. All three embark on a painful journey involving the meaning of life, death, and forgiveness. Just months before her scheduled wedding Franny Wren is poised to flee Manhattan for her native Texas but wonders if change will really make a difference: When do you stop trusting the instinct to run? When do you accept that you will never feel at home, no matter where you go? When do you make yourself stay? Meanwhile, on Death Row Karen awaits her execution in the company of other murderersjaded, embittered women still protesting their innocence. Conditions are horrible: a TV blares constantly, doors slam open and shut, women scream and yell and bang their cell bars with trays. Every two days or so they are stripsearched. Ward does an excellent job of researching Huntsville, the prison system and the death sentence and without any pious sermonizing. Along the way she does some heavy lifting from news media. Karens crimes and personal life, for instance, are taken straight from Aileen Wuornos story. Still another inmate has a story very much like that of Darlie Routier, the woman convicted of stabbing her two small sons while her husband slept upstairs. Declaring her innocence she believes the conviction was Quick, powerful story about two women BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington PLEASESEEBOOK, PAGE30 the result of a misguided birthday party over the graves of her children, complete with balloons and silly string. Each chapter in Sleep Toward Heaven develops the perspective of one of the three damaged women. The writing is spare and powerful and compellingly written. BOOKCONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 Workforce Connection of Citrus, Levy and Marion counties cautions jobseekers to be alert for scammers usurping the names of legitimate businesses and organizations to take advantage of those looking for work. Workforce Connection CEO Rusty Skinner said that the regional workforce board decided to issue the warning after hearing about the problem from other workforce boards. In Panama City, he said, the Gulf Coast Workforce Board recently reported scammers posted jobs on the Employ Florida Marketplace luring jobseekers who, when they responded, were instructed to send money in advance for required job training. Scammers are unscrupulous, clever and are often very good at what they do, Skinner said. It is unconscionable that these imposters are taking money from people who are diligently seeking employment. The Employ Florida Marketplace, or EFM, is the states premier online job bank and used by all 24 regional workforce boards. Even though EFM posts scamming warnings on nearly every page, Skinner said that when someone is searching for work and finds what appears to be a promising job, its easy to get excited and let your guard down. Skinner noted that so far there have been no reports of similar employment scams in Citrus, Levy and Marion counties.

Youre known for your honesty, so people will listen and, perhaps, begin to make long-needed changes. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovines sharp business sense alerts you to question the positions of those trying to push the Bull into a deal. Demand to see proof of what they profess. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your quick thinking helps you get out of a troubling situation that was suddenly thrust upon you. Later on, you can expect to learn more about why it happened. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel youve dotted all your is and crossed all your ts regarding that upcoming deal. But there might be some facts youve ignored. Check again. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Time for the Lion to be more physically active. It will help shake off any lingering Leonine lethargy and restore your energy levels, so youll be prepared for what lies ahead. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Helping those in need at this time is laudable. But dont ignore your own needs, especially where it concerns your health. A medical checkup is a wise move. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Good news: Your outspoken views about a controversial on-the-job situation could find unexpectedly strong support from a most unlikely workplace faction. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might have to draw on your reservoir of spiritual strength to help someone special through a difficult time. Your loving attitude makes all the difference. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your proven leadership qualities make you the perfect person to take on an important workplace task. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Although some compromise might need to be reached regarding your stand on an important issue, youll still be able to get the most crucial points across. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A chance to make a career change carries both positive and uncertain possibilities. Best advice: Check it out thoroughly and dont be rushed into a decision. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Youre still a staunch supporter of one side of an important issue. But be prepared to deal with new information that could cause you to question your current stand. BORN THIS WEEK: Youre perceptive and quick to act when you sense that someone needs help. You are an always-dependable friend. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site):Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to replace the president of the Florida Student Association with the chair of the council of state university student body presidents as the student member of the Board of Governors of the State University System and to require that the Board of Governors organize such council of state university student body presidents.Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment guarantees every university has a chance to have their student body president be named as a representative of the Board of Governors.Arguments against:Opponents say this amendment is unnecessary.Should the state change the way the student representative on the university systems Board of Governors is selected?Amendment 12 concerns the student representative on the Board of Governors, which oversees the states university system. The Board of Governors has 17 members, one of which is the chairman of the Florida Student Association (FSA). If passed, Amendment 12 would instruct the Board of Governors to create a new council consisting of the student body presidents of the states 12 universities. The chair of that new council would replace the chair of the FSA as the student representative to the Board of Governors. This measure won unanimous approval in the House and near unanimous approval in the Senate. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the votes. If approved by the voters, it would go into effect on Jan. 8, 2013.HistoryIn 2002, roughly 60 percent of Floridas voters approved a constitutional amendment creating a Board of Governors to oversee state universities. Three of its 17 members are seated by virtue of position and 14 are appointed by the governor and subject to confirmation by the Florida Senate. The appointed members serve sevenyear terms. The three members seated by virtue of position are the Florida Education Commissioner, the chair of the Advisory Council of Faculty Senates (representing university faculty), and the chair of the FSA (representing university students). Student body presidents from the states various universities comprise the FSA, which charges membership dues. Over the years, several universities chose not pay the dues and participate in the FSA. As a result their representatives in those years could not have been the student representative on the Board of Governors.The Board of GovernorsBroadly speaking, the Board of Governors oversees the operation of the states 12 universities. It defines the mission of each university, submits annual budgets to the Legislature, governs degree programs and oversees admissions programs, among other duties.The FSA The Florida Student Association formed in 1976 as a not-for-profit research and advocacy group representing university students. A year later the Florida Legislature provided student representation on the Board of Regents (forerunner of the Board of Governors), and in 1978 secured voting rights for the student member of the Regents. A priority of the FSA is keeping tuition increases to a minimum. Over the years it has been involved in efforts to reduce teacher-student ratios and increase voter participation among students, and an advocate for the states pre-paid college program and the Bright Futures Scholarship Program. Its mission is to advocate the interests of the state university students at all levels of government. Friday, October 26, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com Based on insider experiences in presidential campaigns, Republican Mary Matalin and Democrat James Carville answered our question in the title of their book on the subject: Alls Fair: Love, War, and Running for President. Their expertise is enhanced by their political mixed marriage and their familiarity with the movers and shakers of party politics. For his re-election theme song, President Obama added fairness to his signature messages of hope and change: I want an America where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules. Fairness is a vague ideal whose absence has aggravated most of us to exclaim at one time or another. Thats not fair! Though its unknown yet whether Mr. Obamas call for fairness has been a successful campaign slogan, it did prompt Time Magazine to invite a commentary titled The New Culture War over Fairness from Professor Johathon Haidt of the New York University School of Business. According to Professor Haidt, our political parties and their presidential candidates believe in fairness but disagree about what kind of fairness is fair. There are any number of fairnesses. Theres proportional fairwww.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 26, 2012 When a top political candidate comes to visit your area, its a public relations boon, especially when someone like vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan opens his comments by saying what great Florida weather he was experiencing. But Ryans visit to Ocala last week has me thinking of some things, just coming up with some questions without answers. So let me present some of those to you. Was the square the best place to hold this rally? In the middle of a workday? Other people and I have thought of several better places, such as Booster Stadium, the Livestock Pavilion, Veterans Memorial Park, etc. Why was it necessary to close off the streets so early? Ryan wasnt scheduled until noon, but the Boulevard was closed at about 7 a.m. (photographer Ron Ratner got a great picture for us of the closed street). People who didnt know could have been late for work, children could have been late for school, etc. Would it have hurt to wait, say, until 8:30. Did businesses in and around the square gain or lose customers because of the event? Then there was the security. Congressman Cliff Stearns walks around Ocala unencumbered any time he feels like it. Congressman Paul Ryan has a security detail that would make a Third World country proud. Ryan is a candidate, but hasnt been elected yet. Wouldnt a smaller detail do? Did we really need G-men with automatic weapons (someone called them tommy guns) at both the airport and downtown? Did we really need all those security people on the rooftops? And speaking of the airport, was it necessary, or even legal, for these security people to stop photographers from taking pictures outside? In fact, at first they wanted to stop all pictures, anywhere. This is our airport, folks, our rules. If you dont like it, stay in Washington. Why do they call it the Secret Service? Whats so secret about the only people in suits, with their little pin on the lapel and their little earpiece? Hopefully, there were other agents blending in in the crowd who didnt advertise their position. To me, these would be the most effective security personnel. How about the TSA? TSA stands for Transportation Security Administration. The mission, according to the TSA website, is TSA has established guiding principles to maintain the security of the traveling public and continuously set the standard for excellence in transportation security. So was the use of the TSA to conduct security on the square the proper use of the agency? The only transporting being done there was people walking because they had to park so far away. Ive gone to sporting events where you have to go through security. It seems they could have done just as well in providing security. And finally, the big question. Whos paying for all of this, especially all the extra work that local people, including law enforcement, had to do? Please tell me it was the Republican National Committee or some such group, and not the taxpayers of Marion County. Even with all these questions, we thank the Republicans for helping the nation hear about Ocala, and we praise all those who conducted the event and made things run smoothly. And I guess everything is relative. I would have loved to see the crowd limits during Biketoberfest in Daytona Beach when both Romney and Ryan arrived the following day.

Today we come to the end of the list of amendments, and if it took this long to go through them, just think of what the lines will be like on Election Day if you arent prepared or havent voted early. Amendment 10 is a Tangible Personal Property Exemption, which increases the tax exemption on personal property for businesses from $25,000 to $50,000. This is another one of those that could hurt the local government by taking away valuable tax dollars for schools, law enforcement, etc. Were sure that some businessmen think this is a good idea, but smaller businesses may not have enough to worry about it. In other words, this is one that protects the bigger businesses from paying more taxes. As we go through these amendments, we see a constant theme of cutting taxes without any way to make up for the lost revenue. So for this one, were saying vote no. The same argument applies to Amendment 11. The title says Additional Homestead Exemption for Low Income Seniors who Maintain Long Term Residency on Property, Equal to Assessed Valuation. This would give counties and cities the right to grant full homestead exemption to seniors who have lived in their homes for at least 25 years and whose home is less than $250,000. Income must be below $27,000. Again, this sounds good at first blush, but how many low-income seniors do you know who live in a home worth $250,000. This is another hit the counties and cities would take in tax revenue, mainly in other parts of the state, and we cant see any reason to approve it here. Finally, Amendment 12 concerns the appointment of a student body president to the Board of Governors of the State University System. If youve been here a while, you remember the old Board of Regents. In our wisdom we disbanded that for a board of governors and set the standards for choosing members. This would change the way one member, a student representative, is chosen. It seems like an awful lot of paperwork for one person. Frankly, were a little old fashioned on this one. We still feel that you have the faculty and administrators and trustees (board of governors) over here, and the students over there. Why should students be on the board at all? And since theres only one, is that just a token representative so we can say that the students have a voice? This is too much to worry about in a serious election. Just vote no on this one. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY The end of the amendments A nice visit, but whos paying for it? Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Alls fair in love and war: How about politics? Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED ness in which benefits should equal contributions. Equal fairness means same benefits to everyone, regardless of contributions. And theres procedural fairness, which means fair rules as to who gets what. Presidential candidates and their parties may warm up to one kind of fairness for a short time. Then depending on how the political winds are blowing, they may suddenly champion a different concept of fair play. Politics and politicians are fickle. If you dont remember the Fairness Doctrine, it was a 1950s rule of the Federal Communications Commission which directed television networks to provide air time for opposing views on issues of public importance. The unspoken threat in the Doctrine was that the big three television networks CBS, NBC, ABC would have to explain appearances of one-sidedness when they applied to renew their broadcast licenses. At the time, conservatives thought the doctrine was a fair idea. The Fairness Doctrine was repealed in 1987, during the Reagan administration. Even though the doctrine had received an OK from the Supreme Court, Reagan and his successor, the first President Bush, disliked that brand of fairness. When Democrats took back control of Congress during the first two years of the Obama administration, the Fairness Doctrine looked like an inviting way to put pins in the balloons of right-wing radio talk shows, which were slamming President Obamas stimulus program. The possibility that the doctrine would be revived caused conservatives to howl: Not fair. President Obama didnt think reinstating the Fairness Doctrine was a good idea either, so Congress let it drift back into obscurity. Seasoned and successful campaigner that he is, Mr. Obama apparently decided a vague campaign call for fair shots, fair shares, and fair rules would be more appealing to voters. Thats smart campaigning. Depending on the election outcome, Republicans may end up wondering why they didnt campaign on fair taxation, fair health care, fair energy, and fair immigration no details, just hope and change. It worked for Mr. Obama, and may work again. Editors note: To avoid any last-minute attack letters that cant be answered, today will be the last day that letters about the election will be published.

It remains apparent that he is not running on his record but continues to promote class warfare and fear, especially among us seniors. Nothing should take the place of looking at where we are today, our deficit, unemployment, the record number in poverty and on food stamps. Our economy hasnt been this bad since the great depression and this hurts everybody. We cant continue on this downward spiral for there are fewer jobs today than there were four years ago! The only way our situation will improve is by having more citizens finding jobs in our private sector, and I know of no one who is better qualified for creating jobs than Romney. Job creation is his number one priority and he has the track record to prove his success as a businessman. He will quickly turn our economy around because he not only knows what needs to be done, he knows how to do it. He will not harm our Social Security or Medicare, so stop worrying about that. He wants to be sure its there for several generations, not just us. By the time this letter is printed, we should know most of the details regarding the murder of our ambassador and the three other men in our embassy. If the truth reveals a cover up to the magnitude the evidence is now indicating, we have a problem that is much larger than Watergate. Billy Graham and many of our other clergy are publically stating concerns they have about Americas direction, asking us to be true to our God and to seek his will in this election. Think and pray before you vote. May God continue to bless America. Wayne Rackley OcalaInflammatory letterNever before has an election produced such inflammatory letters to The Editor as the current one. Yes, there are serious questions that must be answered, however they must be answered with accurate and appropriate information. In the current issue of the South Marion Citizen one letter was completely, totally inaccurate and devoid of factual information regarding Presidential Executive Orders as signed by President Barack H. Obama. First and foremost, executive orders are and must be for the enforcement of statutes of record and cannot create new laws. Executive orders have been used since our esteemed first presidentGeorge Washington. Second, the EO Numbers are from President John F. Kennedy (10990-11005) President Lyndon B. Johnson (11310) and President Gerald Ford (11921). Third, the number of orders signed by President Obama as of October 15, 2012 is 140, none of them have any reference to the subjects quoted. Fourth, before making assertions that are of dubious character, some research should be completedi.e. Snopes.com, Nationalarchive.gov are just two of the most reputable and trustworthy sites. Bigotry and prejudice have no place in the political arena. Let's endeavour to omit such from our daily lives and commit to honest and open discussion based on our informed opinions as the course America should take in the future. Finally, do not be taken in by half truths. Learn for ourselves and from history, particularly the 3-30 years, ascertaining the facts and interpreting them with open mind. Wilmer Wakeley OcalaExecutive ordersThe article about executive orders in the recent issue of the Citizen has so many errors and misinformation that someone needs to call the writer out on the outrageous claims he is making concerning the issuance of executive orders by the president. He starts off by saying the president has issued 923 executive orders over the 3 1/2 years of his presidency. Wrong!! As of Oct. 15, 2012, Obama has signed 140 executive orders. Ronald Reagan issued 409, the elder Bush 149 and George W. Bush 288. Google snopes.com for the info. Next he cites several orders he claims will take away power and freedom from we the people. His exact words. The executive order he is referring to is nothing more than a restatement of policy that has been in place for decades and grants no authority to the president or the Cabinet that they don't already have under existing law. None of these items revisited claim authority to seize private property and place them at the personal disposal of Obama. The original EO was issued in 1939 and has been superseded or changed a number of times without any fanfair. Why the update? The big change deals with the Cabinet itself since there was not a Dept. of Homeland Security at the time and most duties dealing with defense preparedness in times of national emergency were handled by FEMA, the same folks that now concern themselves with hurricanes, flood, fires. So what this all boils down to is an amending of the Defense Production Act which has been in effect since the Truman administration and which authorizes the president, any president Republican or Democrat, to direct private business to allocate resources to national defense as needed in a time of national emergency in much the same way that rationing was implemented during World war II. Nothing more, nothing less Fritz Lauer Oak RunDont believe everythingReaders, please, please, please, do not believe everything you read, particularly letters to the editor of the South Marion Citizen written by regular conservative contributors. A most recent submission in the Oct. 19 edition is a wonderful example. The writer obviously accepts without any research or fact-checking (oops, sorry for the offensive language!) e-mails and blogs that are consistent with anti-Obama beliefs. In this case, the claim is that President Obama has issued 923 executive orders while his predecessor issued only 62, with 10 examples of numbered orders listed that, in words or the contributor, "definitely take away power and freedom from we the people!" And yes, the descriptions of these orders do seem like they would do just that. But once again pesky facts come into play. According to numerous government, fact-checking and other non-partisan sources on the internet, Obama has actually issued 139 executive orders, and Bush issued 290. And the 10 examples listed? All issued by JFK in 1962, and none even remotely related to the descriptions described in the letter to the editor! One wonders how the letter writer's source could have made this "mistake." I'll be waiting for the letters blaming Obama for the small Social Security increase and the increase in Medicare premiums... Bill Tetzlaff OcalaGreen company brokeThis week another of President Obamas Green companies went broke. That makes 8 or 10 at a cost to taxpayers over a billion dollars. It occurs to me we only hear about these companies twice. When they start up and when they fail. So why does this happen over and over? It is simple. No accountability. I retired from the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad. One third of my career was in planning. Planning was simple. First you estimate income. Then you estimate cost. (It's called a budget) The difference is what you return to the investors. In most cases it is stock holders, in others (a category BNSF now belongs) it is direct investors.

Friday, October 26, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com vestors were to whom we were accountable. When revenue outlook changes you modify your cost. The BNSF has made money every year of its century and a half existance. Often it took severe cutbacks in the expense column. That's what we did because we understood the main idea was to return a profit to the investors which, in turn, encouraged more in vestment. Now everybody wants clean air, water and renewable energy, so these companies are good ideas gone bad. From now on when a Democrat comes up with a good idea instead of putting a crony in charge, put a Republican in charge. Republicans understand Passion is not enough and Profit is not a swear word. Bill Riola Oak RunNelson has it right Having worked for the 92nd Congress and a Republican at that, I know members of Congress should show up for roll call votes as well as regular sessions. If they don't, it's called lazy and giving their constituents no representation. Now, in working for Congress it was for Congressman Delbert Latta, (R) from Bowling Green, Ohio. He was always there. No better man ever served in Congress. Now, Senator Nelson has been reporting on Representative Connie Mack's poor attendance in Congress and shirking his responsibilities to the people of his district in Florida. If one were to research the issue, you will find that Senator Nelson is right on the mark. During 2012, Representative Mack has only showed up only 178 times, and has not showed up to vote on 25 of the last 27 votes. In other words his constituents have had Empty Chair Representation. Plus during his last seven years in office, he's had only one bill passed and the president who signed that bill was President Obama. Now, I have to ask. For anyone working in private industry, would you keep them on the payroll. I think no, I know I wouldn't. It's as though Connie Mack is a clone of Mitt Romney, spending all of his time away from Congress. A lot of Republicans have been doing just that. During this same time in 2012, Senator Nelson has missed only one (1) vote. Pretty darn good. I had the pleasure of meeting Senator Nelson four years ago, when he was in Ocala with the now Vice President Joe Biden. In fact, when I went to work for Congressman Latta, it was at the same time Joe Biden went to Congress, and our then State Senator, Lawton Chiles went to the U.S. Senate and went on to become, in later years, one of our great governors. Now I ask you, is that a great group or not. Just remember, who's telling the truth when you vote. Maybe Connie Mack and Mitt Romney should be in the private sector. Romney's already in a very, very private sector. In just what country we don't know. Bill Ford OcalaVote for the right reasonIt's nearly time to vote for our next president. This election will be the most important one ever. The choice we make will determine the future of America: President Obama's socialist-like government, or Mitt Romney's constitutional republic. 1. By selecting Obama's way, our control of America's future will be taken from us and replaced by Obama's socialist-initiative. Many small businesses will disappear. Joblessness will increase even more. Taxes on the middle-class will get higher. The real estate and stock markets will again plummet. Individualism, and selfrespect will become nearly nonexistent. America will no longer be the major power it once was. Our Constitution and our God will be cast aside. 2. By selecting Romney's way, America's future will be determined by We, the People. We will begin the rebuilding process to get America back on the proven path. We will take pride in our achievements and our individualism. We will govern America based on our Constitution ... as intended, and reinstate God as the principle reason for our existence. You may plan to vote for a choice other than one of the two above. For example: he has a better personality or, his wife wears nicer clothes or, I'm a Democrat/Republican so I'll vote that line. Instead, you must decide on which of the above two you choose as your children's, and their children's future. This election is much too important to make any choice other than one of the two described above. Joe OHara OcalaA note to the presidentDear President Obama: A challenge to a debate!!! Topic: Mental diversity, and redistribution. We have diversity of every stripe, what about mental diversity? Prove to citizens that a person with an I.Q. of 60 is going to become a doctor, or lawyer, or CEO, even if a trillion dollars is spent on the effort. Never going to happen. It should not be your decision to tell everyone they can and should go to college. Why waste money? So many graduates walk out the door with little knowledge to show for all the effort, and expense. They might have a lot of indoctrination, and propaganda, which does not count as education. Mental capacity is GOD given, and cannot be redistributed. Never. Speaking of redistribution: You have accomplished 5 trillion of that, to what avail? What do we have to show for all that spending? Not only have you redistributed the wealth of the nation, but, you have distributed my wealth (as little as it is), as well. It appears the standard of living has become inverted. When the poor stand in line with two carts they can hardly push stacked to the ceiling, and I am behind with my pathetic 2 or 3 items. I have had to weigh whether I can afford those 2 or 3 items. Then when you proceed to the parking lot, the poor are loading their purchases into cars, newer and better than many of my family, and friends. When and where does the redistribution LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 stop? That is not what Jesus had in mind when he exhorted us to help the poor. Jesus never said give them a standard of living equal to, or better than yours. Both Occupy Wall Street, and The Tea Party agree that there are those who seek unfair advantage to money and power, but we disagree on the solution. OWS wants to dismantle our system of government. The Tea Party wants to fix what is wrong. The unjust, unconstitutional laws these power lusters manipulated into law. Repeal them. Keep our system, best ever devised by mankind. This is the latest chapter in the good vs. evil scenario. When will we ever be able to stop the next holocaust? There is always the next generations power lusters. When will we learn???? Does anyone think mental diversity should be a criteria deserving of consideration? D.I. Larson Ocala Ocala WestEvangelist, author and scholar Rev.

This new exemption, if approved by the voters, will take effect on January 1, 2013, and apply to the 2013 tax roll and subsequent tax rolls. (2) Authorize a county or municipality for the purpose of its respective levy, and as provided by general law, to provide tangible personal property tax exemptions by ordinance. This is in addition to other statewide tangible personal property tax exemptions provided by the Constitution and this amendment.Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment will give tax relief to small businesses and help stimulate the economy. They say it provides a way for local governments to offer further reductions in the business tax.Arguments against:Opponents say this amendment is part of a trickle-down economic theory that does not work. They say it will strip millions in tax revenue from local governments struggling to provide basic services.Should the states tangible personal property tax exemption be doubled?This proposed amendment is about taxes assessed on tangible personal property used in a business or to earn income. Furniture, fixtures, machinery, tools, shelving, signs and equipment are examples of property that is subject to the states tangible personal property tax. By April 1 of each year, those owning tangible personal property that is used in a business or to earn income must file a return with the local property appraiser. Under current law, the first $25,000 of tangible personal property is exempt from taxation. If passed, Amendment 10 would boost that exemption to $50,000. It would also allow cities and counties to grant additional tangible personal tax exemptions beyond the $50,000 exemption. The measure won unanimous approval in the Senate and near-unanimous approval in House. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved by voters, the added exemption becomes effective Jan. 1, 2013.Fiscal ImpactTangible personal property taxes are levied by counties and by cities. Citing information from the state Department of Revenue, a Florida Senate analysis said 7.6 percent of the total county property taxes levied in Florida in fiscal year 2011-12 were from tangible personal property taxes. The corresponding amount for cities was 6.1 percent. Those percentages would likely decrease if Amendment 10 passes. Statewide, the additional exemption (from $25,000 to $50,000) proposed in Amendment 10 would reduce property tax collections across the state by a combined $61 million over its first three years, according to the state Revenue Estimating Conference, which calculates the anticipated fiscal impact of proposed amendments. The law also allows for counties and cities to expand the exemptions, but the fiscal impact of that proposed change cannot be estimated. Title on Ballot: Tangible Personal Property Tax Exemption Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would double the tangible personal property tax exemption and allow local governments to increase the exemption. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you want to double the tangible personal property tax exemption and allow cities and counties to expand the exemptions beyond that. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not want to double the tangible personal property tax exemption and you do not want to allow cities and counties to expand the exemptions. Early voting starts this weekend Amendment 11Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site):Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to authorize the Legislature, by general law and subject to conditions set forth in the general law, to allow counties and municipalities to grant an additional homestead tax exemption equal to the assessed value of homestead property if the property has a just value less than $250,000 to an owner who has maintained permanent residency on the property for not less than 25 years, who has attained age 65, and who has a low household income as defined by general law.Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment will benefit elderly residents on fixed incomes. They say the property tax discount can help with medical bills and may allow more elderly residents to stay in their homes as they age.Arguments against:Opponents say state and local governments face mounting budget shortfalls in part because of diminished property tax returns. Schools and local governments need to maintain the tax base.Should cities and counties be allowed to grant a full property tax exemption to certain low-income seniors?Amendment 11 authorizes cities and counties to grant full homestead property tax relief to low-income seniors who have lived in their home for at least 25 years. In short, it would allow local governments to eliminate the entire property tax bill for qualifying seniors. Homeowners who meet the following requirements would be eligible: 1) aged 65 and older; 2) have a household income of less than $27,030; 3) own a home with a market value of less than $250,000; 4) have lived in the home for at least 25 years. City councils and county commissions must pass the exemption by a super-majority vote before the full exemption can be offered. The measure won unanimous support in the Senate and House. There is no organized opposition. As with all amendments, passage requires approval by 60 percent or more of the voters. If passed, cities and counties would be authorized to grant the exemption beginning Jan. 8, 2013.HistoryVoters in 1998 approved a measure that authorized the Legislature to allow cities and counties to grant a homestead exemption up to $25,000 to seniors over 65 whose household income (at the time of the bills passage) did not exceed $24,200. That homestead exemption was in addition to the $50,000 in exemptions extended to all Florida homeowners. Schools taxes are excluded from the tax break. In 2012, state lawmakers passed a measure to place on the November ballot a proposed amendment authorizing cities and counties to grant a full homestead exemption to qualifying seniors. It became Amendment 11 on the ballot.Fiscal ImpactThe state estimates that the combined tax revenues schools and local governments would lose if Amendment 11 passes, and if every city and county in the state were to approve the exemption, would be a combined $18.5 million over the first two years it was offered. Title on Ballot: Additional Homestead Exemption; Low-Income Seniors Who Maintain Long-Term Residency on Property; Equal to Assessed Value Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would give an additional property tax exemption to low-income seniors who have lived in their home for more than 25 years. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you think cities and counties should have the authority to grant a full property tax discount to eligible seniors. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not think that cities and counties should have the authority to grant a full property tax discount to eligible seniors. 000D07D Cleanmaster CLEANMASTER CARPET & UPHOLSTERY CLEANING Servicing All Of Citrus & Marion County For 25 Years 489-4844 OWNER DOES THE WORK We Also Have Outdoor Pressure Cleaning Available.

The last time it happened, I promised myself it would never happen again, as long as I lived. So much for my promises, or maybe I died. I found myself stranded at the neighborhood grocery store. I meant to put gas in my car, honest I did. Somehow, it slipped my mind. I do not mind things slipping my mind if they are not important, and if it does not involve the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Unfortunately for me, this did. I dont mind lectures from my Beloved, if I could sometimes pick the topic. Topics like religion and politics would be a nice change. Her topic, which she never tires of, is my forgetfulness. At least I cant remember any other topic at the moment. My car was definitely out of gas and I was going nowhere in it. My only recourse was to walk across the street to the store, and call my wife to come and bail me out of trouble. Every husband knows how difficult this is because we have to do it so often. I went to the phone booth in the store and made the call. Then I went and took a seat to wait for her arrival. As I was waiting, I noticed an elderly gentleman come into the store. I call him a gentleman, but these days, who knows? This man walked into the store as if he was concerned about being followed. Every few steps he threw a glance over his shoulder as if someone was stalking him. Since I did not have anything to do for the next 20 minutes, I settled back to watch. When he got into the store, he cautiously walked around the store as if casing it. So many stores are being robbed; I didnt know but this man was planning to pull off a heist. My interest piqued, which kept my mind off the trouble I was in with my wife when she arrived to pick me up. When a person is in trouble, it is always a good thing to try to take ones mind off said trouble, and on someone who might be in more trouble than you are at the moment. At least, thats what I told myself at the time. When a person is facing trouble, he will say anything to himself to calm those jagged nerves. The man walked around the store several times, always glancing over his shoulder as if he expected something to happen. As far as I could tell, he was an ordinary man with no special features. He walked with a slow shuffle, but thats to be expected when a mans body ages. I saw him stand over against a corner for several minutes while he intently watched the front door. A little spooked by this time, I did not know if I should alert the manager or call the police. I envisioned the headlines in the newspapers the next day: Local pastor dies a heros death in the crossfire. I sure would like to be a hero, but only in my own mind. This hero business can be a little dangerous, so I was in a quandary. In scanning the gentleman as best I could, I knew he could not have a large weapon on his person. The loose fitting shirt revealed no bomb strapped to his chest, which was a little comforting. Then the gentleman Be sure, your sin will find you out OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L.

Saturday morning dawned sunny and clear with just a little crispness in the air. Cherrywood residents opened their garage doors; lined their driveways with tables and put their sellable goods out. Scores of visitors from the surrounding area began driving through the neatly kept neighborhood; the Cherrywood Yard Sale was on.

This meeting should be of particular interest to most of our community. Joe Pine of the Marion County Sheriffs Office Metro Crime Prevention Division will be our guest speaker. His presentation will be on ID theft; Internet crimes; crimes against the elderly and popular scams that are making their way through Marion County and Florida.

The entire community is welcome to attend this special service honoring all of ourFriday, October 26, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com began to move and I froze. My life flashed before me in an instant which bored me almost to death. I never want to experience anything like that ever again. My focus once again went to the gentleman in motion. What was he going to do? Gradually he eased up to the bakery department. I almost stood, but at my height, I would be an easy target. Its hard for anyone to miss a barn door, especially one with a flashy smile. I braced myself for what would happen next. Then it happened. The elderly gentleman, with one last glance over his shoulder, bought a chocolate clair. I was confused relieved but confused. What was all the secrecy about? About this time, I saw him slither toward the bench where I was sitting. Without looking at me, the man sank into the corner as though hiding from someone. He sat there for a few minutes and then he opened his bag with the clair. Just as he took his first bite, someone recognized him, came up and said, Henry, is that a chocolate clair youre eating? He glanced at me and gave me one of those sick smiles that every husband recognizes. No matter how hard you try to keep something (like clairs) from your wife, it is impossible. There is a spiritual lesson here. No matter how hard you try to hide your sin, somewhere, somehow, when you least expect it, someone will see you. An Old Testament scripture lays down an important principle in this regard. But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the Lord: and be sure your sin will find you out. (Numbers 32:23 KJV.) David, the Psalmist, knew this and wrote, Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalm 139:23-24 KJV.) Live your life as though someone was watching you, because, Someone is watching you.Rev. James L.

U.S. Baseball Academy, which operates a national network of affordable hitting, pitching, catching, fielding and baserunning camps for players in grades 1 through 12, is pleased to announce the addition of Ocala Rotary Sportsplex to its lineup for the coming winter and spring. Registration is now under way at www.USBaseballAcademy.com. U.S. Baseball Academy's Spring Training 2013 is a unique concept that provides young players with advanced hitting, pitching, catching, fielding and baserunning training programs, instruction by the area's top coaches and fantastic facilities. The training sessions include six weeks of instruction for as low as $99. U.S. Baseball Academy's 2013 Spring Training program will be held at nearly 150 sites across the United States. The session in Ocala runs January 20 to February 24 at Ocala Rotary Sportsplex. Instructors will include a staff of the areas best coaches. With a player-coach ratio of 6 to 1, each player gets plenty of individual attention in a small-group atmosphere. In addition to unbeatable instruction by the area's best coaches, players get a preseason tune-up that helps them enter team practice in mid-season form. With numerous age-specific sessions, instruction is specially tailored for each ability level. Overall, it's the type of intense, professional instruction young players just can't get in a summer league. Since 1988, U.S. Baseball Academy has run hundreds of camps and clinics for thousands of players nationwide. Each week, hitters rotate through a series of supervised stations, including indoor batting cages, with each drill designed to teach a different aspect of hitting. Players enjoy participating in hitting games and unique stations used by top high school and college programs. The program is designed to improve pitch and strike zone recognition, timing, balance, power, situational hitting, bunting, and other aspects. Pitchers work under the supervision of coaches who can help with all aspects of pitching, from fundamentals and mechanics to more advanced concepts. Drills and repetition will improve a pitcher's speed and control. Our catcher's camp covers all aspects of being behind the plate. Players will get instruction on stance, signs, receiving, framing, blocking, throwing, fielding bunts, tags and the mental aspects of dealing with pitchers. Registration deadlines are approximately six weeks before each session begins, but last year's camps sold out much earlier. Because of the low player-coach ratio, spots in each session are limited. Complete details and times for each site, as well as registration forms, are available online at www.USBaseballAcademy.com or by phoning toll free 866-622-4487.

Marion Landing was treated to a visit by the newest members of Marion County Sheriffs Office K-9 Unit. Deputy Colton Sullivan and his K-9 partner, Pyro, were at the Search Team meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 23. Pyro is an 18-month-old German Shepherd from Germany and is ATF certified.

Now, even adults get into the act wearing a costume and pretending to be other than what they really are. Halloween, next Wednesday, is our day for this. But our politicians do this every day, especially leading up to Election Day November 6. Our travel down Pun Alley take us to some haunts and ghostly stories for Halloween; but beware of the politicians who will continue their ghoulish activities for more than another week when you get to vote for the political joke of your choice.On Route 200Rumors abound about a haunted house hidden in some trees on Route 200 and how everyone avoids it because of the ghost. Back some time ago an enterprising journalist decided to get the scoop by photographing the fearsome phantom. Late one night he entered the house armed with only his camera. The ghost immediately tried to scare him away. He told the ghost I mean no harm I just want your photograph. The ghost was quite happy at this chance to make the headlines, so he posed for a number of ghostly shots. When the happy journalist began developing the photos in his dark room they turned out to be black and underexposed. It seems that the spirit was willing but the flash was weak.Medical costumesTwo medical residents were invited to a Halloween party after their shift ended. They stopped at the Army/Navy store to see if they could find costumes but only had enough money to buy one pair of Army fatigues. One wore the top half and the other one wore the bottom half. They went as an upper and lower GI. Another medical resident simply wore slacks and a white T-shirt with a large 98.6 printed across the front. When someone finally asked what he was supposed to be, he replied, Im a temp.Haunting punsGirl ghosts go on diets so they can keep their ghoulish figures. The skeleton didnt dance at the Halloween party because he had no body to dance with. Witches think theyre funny because every time they look in the mirror, it cracks up. Draculas wife could never get to sleep because of his coffin. The game warden arrested the ghost because he didnt have a haunting license. The ghost repaired his sheet with a pumpkin patch. The doctor told the zombie to get some rest because he was dead on his feet. Witches dont like to ride their brooms when theyre angry because theyre afraid of flying off the handle. A boy carried a clock and a bird on Halloween. It was for tick or tweet. Last Halloween John really scared his brother. He went over to his house dressed as a job. Western Union opened an office in a graveyard so the spooks could send and receive crypt-o-grams. One witch told another witch, I want one of those new computers that has a spell checker. A ghost with a broken leg is called a hoblin goblin. People who play the stock market are happy on Halloween because its ticker treat night. The ghost of a door-todoor salesman is always a dead ringer. One Halloween a kid showed up at our door dressed as an IRS agent. It was very authentic. He took 40 percent of our candy. At the Halloween ball the ghosts danced sheet to sheet. Students think their school is haunted. The principal is always talking about the school spirit.Invisible troublesDont bother inviting the invisible man to your Halloween party. He wont show up. Sometimes he makes excuses, but theyre all transparent. You can see right through them. His mother and father were also invisible. They were trans-parents. When he was a teenager, he seldom hung out with his friends. There was simply too much disappear pressure. Whenever he tried to make a point with his friends, they just said, I dont see where youre coming from.Halloween nightDick and his wife, Jane, have heard tales about Halloween night in Oak Run when mountain lions wander in from the Green Way, coyotes howl and owls keep track of every moving thing by repeatedly asking who, who. We will certainly be staying indoors. Some haunting tales coming down Pun Alley PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank Celebrate this years holiday season with friends and loved ones while supporting conservation and tree planting with the help of the Arbor Day Foundation. Returning for the fifth season in a row, Give-A-Tree cards from the Arbor Day Foundation offer a unique holiday giving opportunity with conservation benefits that will endure for generations. For the first time this year, Give-A-Tree cards can be purchased individually and with customized text. Purchasing the Arbor Day Foundations specialty coffee helps preserve rain forests in Central and South America. The Foundations Specialty Coffee is shadegrown under the canopy of Latin American rain forests. Unlike sun-grown coffee plantations, this traditional shade-grown method gives the coffee a rich and delicious fl avor, while preventing the destruction of forestland. The Foundations Trees in Celebration program allows the giver to honor loved ones while supporting crucial conservation efforts. For each dollar donated, one tree is planted in a high-need forest, and recipients are given a certificate showing them where the trees were planted. By giving friends the gift of membership to the Arbor Day Foundation, recipients will also be sent 10 free trees, which will be shipped at the right time of year for planting. The holidays are a time for thinking about others, and as you do, take a moment to think about what you can do to protect the beauty and splendor of the Earth, said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. We encourage everyone to give gifts that will have a lasting impact for generations to come. To purchase holiday gifts that give back to the planet, visit arborday.org.

Friday, October 26, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com county commissioners Kathy Bryant and Stan McClain, and thanked the pair. He also recognized outgoing Congressman Cliff Stearns, U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent, who spoke to the crowd, and Ted Yoho, Republican candidate for Congress in the November election. He started by saying that we have a big choice to make this is not an ordinary election. He said the nation had to decide what kind of country were going to have into the next generation. Ryan noted that since the spring, President Obama was not telling people his plan for the next term. All he is offering is four more years of the same. Much of his conversation concerned Social Security and Medicare. He said the Democrats were taking $716 million from Medicare to pay for Obamacare. Ryan added that Obama was not offering a vision but was solely concentrating on dont elect Mitt. He said the president was trying to distract the country. Hes trying to win the election by default. Were not going to let him get away with that. Praising his running mate, he said, We have a real leader in Mitt, who is going to get this country back on track. He spoke a familiar saying, Government works for the people. Government doesnt run the people. Invoking the name of his mother, who became a small business owner after his father died, he spoke of retirement and Medicare. Theres a really clear choice. Nowhere is the difference more stark. Ryan said that Social Security and Medicare were promised in the past, but if we stay on this path, they become broken promises. He criticized the Obamacare board of 15 people whose job is to cut back Medicare each year. Fifteen people in Washington will get to say how it works. Surprisingly, he brought up a plan put together under President Bill Clinton, saying that there was a panel to give people choices. It would empower 50 million seniors to make choices for themselves, not 15 people in Washington. Questions included one on home schooling. We believe in freedom. You should have the freedom to do that. We believe in parents controlling their childs education. He said he wants to give control of education back to the states. Asked about jobs for women, he said Obama took his eye off the ball. Fewer women are working today than when he took office. He stated, Most women get their jobs from successful small businesses, and said government should stay out of the way of small business. Ryan spoke of the Social Security Trust Fund, saying that it would go bankrupt at the current rate in 2033. This was in response to a question about the Disability Trust Fund, which he said is going bankrupt now. Since 1968 weve been raiding the Social Security Trust Fund to pay for other programs. Now, he said, theres not enough to pay benefits. He said in 2033 there would be a 25 percent benefit cut. Every year you fail to confront the problem, it gets bigger. He emphasized, more than once, that for people 55 and older there would be no changes. He also said he didnt want to increase benefits for wealthy people by the same amount as for middle class people. After noting that people are living longer, he proposed that starting in 2022 the retirement age would go up a month every other year. Weve got to make sure Social Security keeps its promise. Knowing he was in the state that was one of the hearts of the space program, he was critical of military cuts which include NASA. If we want to send astronauts to the space station, we have to pay the Russians. That drew a loud chorus of boos from the audience. Asked about college costs, he said to the questioner, We want you to come out of college and into a job. He said that 50 percent of graduates are not working in their chosen field or not working at all. Ryan added that students were coming out of college with huge debts. He spoke of working three jobs when he graduated to pay off his loans, but added, they were loans I could afford. He said to students that your share of the debt is $51,000, and you havent even gotten out of school yet. In summary he said that the election provided a clear choice, stagnation or growth. He said Republicans are not going to run away from these problems. This is the most successful country in the history of this planet. Lets keep it that way. Ryans schedule called for a visit to Southwest Florida later in the day, then a rally with Romney in Daytona Beach at Biketoberfest.

Docents Trinette Collmer and Jim Carrell, both Oak Run photographers, led the group through the exhibits Pure Photography and Florada & Flowing Waters adding interesting comments about the photographers and/or techniques used in producing the art. The exhibit Pure Photography featured the works of Eugene Atget, Berenice Abbott, Imogen Cunningham, Gordon Parks, Edward Weston and the iconic images Edward Steichens 1928 portrait of Greta Garbo and Alfred Stieglitzs famous The Steerage from 1907. It ended Oct. 21.

Friday, October 26, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com county commissioners Kathy Bryant and Stan McClain, and thanked the pair. He also recognized outgoing Congressman Cliff Stearns, U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent, who spoke to the crowd, and Ted Yoho, Republican candidate for Congress in the November election. He started by saying that we have a big choice to make this is not an ordinary election. He said the nation had to decide what kind of country were going to have into the next generation. Ryan noted that since the spring, President Obama was not telling people his plan for the next term. All he is offering is four more years of the same. Much of his conversation concerned Social Security and Medicare. He said the Democrats were taking $716 million from Medicare to pay for Obamacare. Ryan added that Obama was not offering a vision but was solely concentrating on dont elect Mitt. He said the president was trying to distract the country. Hes trying to win the election by default. Were not going to let him get away with that. Praising his running mate, he said, We have a real leader in Mitt, who is going to get this country back on track. He spoke a familiar saying, Government works for the people. Government doesnt run the people. Invoking the name of his mother, who became a small business owner after his father died, he spoke of retirement and Medicare. Theres a really clear choice. Nowhere is the difference more stark. Ryan said that Social Security and Medicare were promised in the past, but if we stay on this path, they become broken promises. He criticized the Obamacare board of 15 people whose job is to cut back Medicare each year. Fifteen people in Washington will get to say how it works. Surprisingly, he brought up a plan put together under President Bill Clinton, saying that there was a panel to give people choices. It would empower 50 million seniors to make choices for themselves, not 15 people in Washington. Questions included one on home schooling. We believe in freedom. You should have the freedom to do that. We believe in parents controlling their childs education. He said he wants to give control of education back to the states. Asked about jobs for women, he said Obama took his eye off the ball. Fewer women are working today than when he took office. He stated, Most women get their jobs from successful small businesses, and said government should stay out of the way of small business. Ryan spoke of the Social Security Trust Fund, saying that it would go bankrupt at the current rate in 2033. This was in response to a question about the Disability Trust Fund, which he said is going bankrupt now. Since 1968 weve been raiding the Social Security Trust Fund to pay for other programs. Now, he said, theres not enough to pay benefits. He said in 2033 there would be a 25 percent benefit cut. Every year you fail to confront the problem, it gets bigger. He emphasized, more than once, that for people 55 and older there would be no changes. He also said he didnt want to increase benefits for wealthy people by the same amount as for middle class people. After noting that people are living longer, he proposed that starting in 2022 the retirement age would go up a month every other year. Weve got to make sure Social Security keeps its promise. Knowing he was in the state that was one of the hearts of the space program, he was critical of military cuts which include NASA. If we want to send astronauts to the space station, we have to pay the Russians. That drew a loud chorus of boos from the audience. Asked about college costs, he said to the questioner, We want you to come out of college and into a job. He said that 50 percent of graduates are not working in their chosen field or not working at all. Ryan added that students were coming out of college with huge debts. He spoke of working three jobs when he graduated to pay off his loans, but added, they were loans I could afford. He said to students that your share of the debt is $51,000, and you havent even gotten out of school yet. In summary he said that the election provided a clear choice, stagnation or growth. He said Republicans are not going to run away from these problems. This is the most successful country in the history of this planet. Lets keep it that way. Ryans schedule called for a visit to Southwest Florida later in the day, then a rally with Romney in Daytona Beach at Biketoberfest.

Now, even adults get into the act wearing a costume and pretending to be other than what they really are. Halloween, next Wednesday, is our day for this. But our politicians do this every day, especially leading up to Election Day November 6. Our travel down Pun Alley take us to some haunts and ghostly stories for Halloween; but beware of the politicians who will continue their ghoulish activities for more than another week when you get to vote for the political joke of your choice.On Route 200Rumors abound about a haunted house hidden in some trees on Route 200 and how everyone avoids it because of the ghost. Back some time ago an enterprising journalist decided to get the scoop by photographing the fearsome phantom. Late one night he entered the house armed with only his camera. The ghost immediately tried to scare him away. He told the ghost I mean no harm I just want your photograph. The ghost was quite happy at this chance to make the headlines, so he posed for a number of ghostly shots. When the happy journalist began developing the photos in his dark room they turned out to be black and underexposed. It seems that the spirit was willing but the flash was weak.Medical costumesTwo medical residents were invited to a Halloween party after their shift ended. They stopped at the Army/Navy store to see if they could find costumes but only had enough money to buy one pair of Army fatigues. One wore the top half and the other one wore the bottom half. They went as an upper and lower GI. Another medical resident simply wore slacks and a white T-shirt with a large 98.6 printed across the front. When someone finally asked what he was supposed to be, he replied, Im a temp.Haunting punsGirl ghosts go on diets so they can keep their ghoulish figures. The skeleton didnt dance at the Halloween party because he had no body to dance with. Witches think theyre funny because every time they look in the mirror, it cracks up. Draculas wife could never get to sleep because of his coffin. The game warden arrested the ghost because he didnt have a haunting license. The ghost repaired his sheet with a pumpkin patch. The doctor told the zombie to get some rest because he was dead on his feet. Witches dont like to ride their brooms when theyre angry because theyre afraid of flying off the handle. A boy carried a clock and a bird on Halloween. It was for tick or tweet. Last Halloween John really scared his brother. He went over to his house dressed as a job. Western Union opened an office in a graveyard so the spooks could send and receive crypt-o-grams. One witch told another witch, I want one of those new computers that has a spell checker. A ghost with a broken leg is called a hoblin goblin. People who play the stock market are happy on Halloween because its ticker treat night. The ghost of a door-todoor salesman is always a dead ringer. One Halloween a kid showed up at our door dressed as an IRS agent. It was very authentic. He took 40 percent of our candy. At the Halloween ball the ghosts danced sheet to sheet. Students think their school is haunted. The principal is always talking about the school spirit.Invisible troublesDont bother inviting the invisible man to your Halloween party. He wont show up. Sometimes he makes excuses, but theyre all transparent. You can see right through them. His mother and father were also invisible. They were trans-parents. When he was a teenager, he seldom hung out with his friends. There was simply too much disappear pressure. Whenever he tried to make a point with his friends, they just said, I dont see where youre coming from.Halloween nightDick and his wife, Jane, have heard tales about Halloween night in Oak Run when mountain lions wander in from the Green Way, coyotes howl and owls keep track of every moving thing by repeatedly asking who, who. We will certainly be staying indoors. Some haunting tales coming down Pun Alley PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank Celebrate this years holiday season with friends and loved ones while supporting conservation and tree planting with the help of the Arbor Day Foundation. Returning for the fifth season in a row, Give-A-Tree cards from the Arbor Day Foundation offer a unique holiday giving opportunity with conservation benefits that will endure for generations. For the first time this year, Give-A-Tree cards can be purchased individually and with customized text. Purchasing the Arbor Day Foundations specialty coffee helps preserve rain forests in Central and South America. The Foundations Specialty Coffee is shadegrown under the canopy of Latin American rain forests. Unlike sun-grown coffee plantations, this traditional shade-grown method gives the coffee a rich and delicious fl avor, while preventing the destruction of forestland. The Foundations Trees in Celebration program allows the giver to honor loved ones while supporting crucial conservation efforts. For each dollar donated, one tree is planted in a high-need forest, and recipients are given a certificate showing them where the trees were planted. By giving friends the gift of membership to the Arbor Day Foundation, recipients will also be sent 10 free trees, which will be shipped at the right time of year for planting. The holidays are a time for thinking about others, and as you do, take a moment to think about what you can do to protect the beauty and splendor of the Earth, said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. We encourage everyone to give gifts that will have a lasting impact for generations to come. To purchase holiday gifts that give back to the planet, visit arborday.org.

Saturday morning dawned sunny and clear with just a little crispness in the air. Cherrywood residents opened their garage doors; lined their driveways with tables and put their sellable goods out. Scores of visitors from the surrounding area began driving through the neatly kept neighborhood; the Cherrywood Yard Sale was on.

The entire community is welcome to attend this special service honoring all of ourFriday, October 26, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com began to move and I froze. My life flashed before me in an instant which bored me almost to death. I never want to experience anything like that ever again. My focus once again went to the gentleman in motion. What was he going to do? Gradually he eased up to the bakery department. I almost stood, but at my height, I would be an easy target. Its hard for anyone to miss a barn door, especially one with a flashy smile. I braced myself for what would happen next. Then it happened. The elderly gentleman, with one last glance over his shoulder, bought a chocolate clair. I was confused relieved but confused. What was all the secrecy about? About this time, I saw him slither toward the bench where I was sitting. Without looking at me, the man sank into the corner as though hiding from someone. He sat there for a few minutes and then he opened his bag with the clair. Just as he took his first bite, someone recognized him, came up and said, Henry, is that a chocolate clair youre eating? He glanced at me and gave me one of those sick smiles that every husband recognizes. No matter how hard you try to keep something (like clairs) from your wife, it is impossible. There is a spiritual lesson here. No matter how hard you try to hide your sin, somewhere, somehow, when you least expect it, someone will see you. An Old Testament scripture lays down an important principle in this regard. But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the Lord: and be sure your sin will find you out. (Numbers 32:23 KJV.) David, the Psalmist, knew this and wrote, Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalm 139:23-24 KJV.) Live your life as though someone was watching you, because, Someone is watching you.Rev. James L.

U.S. Baseball Academy, which operates a national network of affordable hitting, pitching, catching, fielding and baserunning camps for players in grades 1 through 12, is pleased to announce the addition of Ocala Rotary Sportsplex to its lineup for the coming winter and spring. Registration is now under way at www.USBaseballAcademy.com. U.S. Baseball Academy's Spring Training 2013 is a unique concept that provides young players with advanced hitting, pitching, catching, fielding and baserunning training programs, instruction by the area's top coaches and fantastic facilities. The training sessions include six weeks of instruction for as low as $99. U.S. Baseball Academy's 2013 Spring Training program will be held at nearly 150 sites across the United States. The session in Ocala runs January 20 to February 24 at Ocala Rotary Sportsplex. Instructors will include a staff of the areas best coaches. With a player-coach ratio of 6 to 1, each player gets plenty of individual attention in a small-group atmosphere. In addition to unbeatable instruction by the area's best coaches, players get a preseason tune-up that helps them enter team practice in mid-season form. With numerous age-specific sessions, instruction is specially tailored for each ability level. Overall, it's the type of intense, professional instruction young players just can't get in a summer league. Since 1988, U.S. Baseball Academy has run hundreds of camps and clinics for thousands of players nationwide. Each week, hitters rotate through a series of supervised stations, including indoor batting cages, with each drill designed to teach a different aspect of hitting. Players enjoy participating in hitting games and unique stations used by top high school and college programs. The program is designed to improve pitch and strike zone recognition, timing, balance, power, situational hitting, bunting, and other aspects. Pitchers work under the supervision of coaches who can help with all aspects of pitching, from fundamentals and mechanics to more advanced concepts. Drills and repetition will improve a pitcher's speed and control. Our catcher's camp covers all aspects of being behind the plate. Players will get instruction on stance, signs, receiving, framing, blocking, throwing, fielding bunts, tags and the mental aspects of dealing with pitchers. Registration deadlines are approximately six weeks before each session begins, but last year's camps sold out much earlier. Because of the low player-coach ratio, spots in each session are limited. Complete details and times for each site, as well as registration forms, are available online at www.USBaseballAcademy.com or by phoning toll free 866-622-4487.

The last time it happened, I promised myself it would never happen again, as long as I lived. So much for my promises, or maybe I died. I found myself stranded at the neighborhood grocery store. I meant to put gas in my car, honest I did. Somehow, it slipped my mind. I do not mind things slipping my mind if they are not important, and if it does not involve the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Unfortunately for me, this did. I dont mind lectures from my Beloved, if I could sometimes pick the topic. Topics like religion and politics would be a nice change. Her topic, which she never tires of, is my forgetfulness. At least I cant remember any other topic at the moment. My car was definitely out of gas and I was going nowhere in it. My only recourse was to walk across the street to the store, and call my wife to come and bail me out of trouble. Every husband knows how difficult this is because we have to do it so often. I went to the phone booth in the store and made the call. Then I went and took a seat to wait for her arrival. As I was waiting, I noticed an elderly gentleman come into the store. I call him a gentleman, but these days, who knows? This man walked into the store as if he was concerned about being followed. Every few steps he threw a glance over his shoulder as if someone was stalking him. Since I did not have anything to do for the next 20 minutes, I settled back to watch. When he got into the store, he cautiously walked around the store as if casing it. So many stores are being robbed; I didnt know but this man was planning to pull off a heist. My interest piqued, which kept my mind off the trouble I was in with my wife when she arrived to pick me up. When a person is in trouble, it is always a good thing to try to take ones mind off said trouble, and on someone who might be in more trouble than you are at the moment. At least, thats what I told myself at the time. When a person is facing trouble, he will say anything to himself to calm those jagged nerves. The man walked around the store several times, always glancing over his shoulder as if he expected something to happen. As far as I could tell, he was an ordinary man with no special features. He walked with a slow shuffle, but thats to be expected when a mans body ages. I saw him stand over against a corner for several minutes while he intently watched the front door. A little spooked by this time, I did not know if I should alert the manager or call the police. I envisioned the headlines in the newspapers the next day: Local pastor dies a heros death in the crossfire. I sure would like to be a hero, but only in my own mind. This hero business can be a little dangerous, so I was in a quandary. In scanning the gentleman as best I could, I knew he could not have a large weapon on his person. The loose fitting shirt revealed no bomb strapped to his chest, which was a little comforting. Then the gentleman Be sure, your sin will find you out OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L.

Friday, October 26, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com vestors were to whom we were accountable. When revenue outlook changes you modify your cost. The BNSF has made money every year of its century and a half existance. Often it took severe cutbacks in the expense column. That's what we did because we understood the main idea was to return a profit to the investors which, in turn, encouraged more in vestment. Now everybody wants clean air, water and renewable energy, so these companies are good ideas gone bad. From now on when a Democrat comes up with a good idea instead of putting a crony in charge, put a Republican in charge. Republicans understand Passion is not enough and Profit is not a swear word. Bill Riola Oak RunNelson has it right Having worked for the 92nd Congress and a Republican at that, I know members of Congress should show up for roll call votes as well as regular sessions. If they don't, it's called lazy and giving their constituents no representation. Now, in working for Congress it was for Congressman Delbert Latta, (R) from Bowling Green, Ohio. He was always there. No better man ever served in Congress. Now, Senator Nelson has been reporting on Representative Connie Mack's poor attendance in Congress and shirking his responsibilities to the people of his district in Florida. If one were to research the issue, you will find that Senator Nelson is right on the mark. During 2012, Representative Mack has only showed up only 178 times, and has not showed up to vote on 25 of the last 27 votes. In other words his constituents have had Empty Chair Representation. Plus during his last seven years in office, he's had only one bill passed and the president who signed that bill was President Obama. Now, I have to ask. For anyone working in private industry, would you keep them on the payroll. I think no, I know I wouldn't. It's as though Connie Mack is a clone of Mitt Romney, spending all of his time away from Congress. A lot of Republicans have been doing just that. During this same time in 2012, Senator Nelson has missed only one (1) vote. Pretty darn good. I had the pleasure of meeting Senator Nelson four years ago, when he was in Ocala with the now Vice President Joe Biden. In fact, when I went to work for Congressman Latta, it was at the same time Joe Biden went to Congress, and our then State Senator, Lawton Chiles went to the U.S. Senate and went on to become, in later years, one of our great governors. Now I ask you, is that a great group or not. Just remember, who's telling the truth when you vote. Maybe Connie Mack and Mitt Romney should be in the private sector. Romney's already in a very, very private sector. In just what country we don't know. Bill Ford OcalaVote for the right reasonIt's nearly time to vote for our next president. This election will be the most important one ever. The choice we make will determine the future of America: President Obama's socialist-like government, or Mitt Romney's constitutional republic. 1. By selecting Obama's way, our control of America's future will be taken from us and replaced by Obama's socialist-initiative. Many small businesses will disappear. Joblessness will increase even more. Taxes on the middle-class will get higher. The real estate and stock markets will again plummet. Individualism, and selfrespect will become nearly nonexistent. America will no longer be the major power it once was. Our Constitution and our God will be cast aside. 2. By selecting Romney's way, America's future will be determined by We, the People. We will begin the rebuilding process to get America back on the proven path. We will take pride in our achievements and our individualism. We will govern America based on our Constitution ... as intended, and reinstate God as the principle reason for our existence. You may plan to vote for a choice other than one of the two above. For example: he has a better personality or, his wife wears nicer clothes or, I'm a Democrat/Republican so I'll vote that line. Instead, you must decide on which of the above two you choose as your children's, and their children's future. This election is much too important to make any choice other than one of the two described above. Joe OHara OcalaA note to the presidentDear President Obama: A challenge to a debate!!! Topic: Mental diversity, and redistribution. We have diversity of every stripe, what about mental diversity? Prove to citizens that a person with an I.Q. of 60 is going to become a doctor, or lawyer, or CEO, even if a trillion dollars is spent on the effort. Never going to happen. It should not be your decision to tell everyone they can and should go to college. Why waste money? So many graduates walk out the door with little knowledge to show for all the effort, and expense. They might have a lot of indoctrination, and propaganda, which does not count as education. Mental capacity is GOD given, and cannot be redistributed. Never. Speaking of redistribution: You have accomplished 5 trillion of that, to what avail? What do we have to show for all that spending? Not only have you redistributed the wealth of the nation, but, you have distributed my wealth (as little as it is), as well. It appears the standard of living has become inverted. When the poor stand in line with two carts they can hardly push stacked to the ceiling, and I am behind with my pathetic 2 or 3 items. I have had to weigh whether I can afford those 2 or 3 items. Then when you proceed to the parking lot, the poor are loading their purchases into cars, newer and better than many of my family, and friends. When and where does the redistribution LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 stop? That is not what Jesus had in mind when he exhorted us to help the poor. Jesus never said give them a standard of living equal to, or better than yours. Both Occupy Wall Street, and The Tea Party agree that there are those who seek unfair advantage to money and power, but we disagree on the solution. OWS wants to dismantle our system of government. The Tea Party wants to fix what is wrong. The unjust, unconstitutional laws these power lusters manipulated into law. Repeal them. Keep our system, best ever devised by mankind. This is the latest chapter in the good vs. evil scenario. When will we ever be able to stop the next holocaust? There is always the next generations power lusters. When will we learn???? Does anyone think mental diversity should be a criteria deserving of consideration? D.I. Larson Ocala Ocala WestEvangelist, author and scholar Rev.

This new exemption, if approved by the voters, will take effect on January 1, 2013, and apply to the 2013 tax roll and subsequent tax rolls. (2) Authorize a county or municipality for the purpose of its respective levy, and as provided by general law, to provide tangible personal property tax exemptions by ordinance. This is in addition to other statewide tangible personal property tax exemptions provided by the Constitution and this amendment.Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment will give tax relief to small businesses and help stimulate the economy. They say it provides a way for local governments to offer further reductions in the business tax.Arguments against:Opponents say this amendment is part of a trickle-down economic theory that does not work. They say it will strip millions in tax revenue from local governments struggling to provide basic services.Should the states tangible personal property tax exemption be doubled?This proposed amendment is about taxes assessed on tangible personal property used in a business or to earn income. Furniture, fixtures, machinery, tools, shelving, signs and equipment are examples of property that is subject to the states tangible personal property tax. By April 1 of each year, those owning tangible personal property that is used in a business or to earn income must file a return with the local property appraiser. Under current law, the first $25,000 of tangible personal property is exempt from taxation. If passed, Amendment 10 would boost that exemption to $50,000. It would also allow cities and counties to grant additional tangible personal tax exemptions beyond the $50,000 exemption. The measure won unanimous approval in the Senate and near-unanimous approval in House. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the voters. If approved by voters, the added exemption becomes effective Jan. 1, 2013.Fiscal ImpactTangible personal property taxes are levied by counties and by cities. Citing information from the state Department of Revenue, a Florida Senate analysis said 7.6 percent of the total county property taxes levied in Florida in fiscal year 2011-12 were from tangible personal property taxes. The corresponding amount for cities was 6.1 percent. Those percentages would likely decrease if Amendment 10 passes. Statewide, the additional exemption (from $25,000 to $50,000) proposed in Amendment 10 would reduce property tax collections across the state by a combined $61 million over its first three years, according to the state Revenue Estimating Conference, which calculates the anticipated fiscal impact of proposed amendments. The law also allows for counties and cities to expand the exemptions, but the fiscal impact of that proposed change cannot be estimated. Title on Ballot: Tangible Personal Property Tax Exemption Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would double the tangible personal property tax exemption and allow local governments to increase the exemption. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you want to double the tangible personal property tax exemption and allow cities and counties to expand the exemptions beyond that. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not want to double the tangible personal property tax exemption and you do not want to allow cities and counties to expand the exemptions. Early voting starts this weekend Amendment 11Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site):Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to authorize the Legislature, by general law and subject to conditions set forth in the general law, to allow counties and municipalities to grant an additional homestead tax exemption equal to the assessed value of homestead property if the property has a just value less than $250,000 to an owner who has maintained permanent residency on the property for not less than 25 years, who has attained age 65, and who has a low household income as defined by general law.Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment will benefit elderly residents on fixed incomes. They say the property tax discount can help with medical bills and may allow more elderly residents to stay in their homes as they age.Arguments against:Opponents say state and local governments face mounting budget shortfalls in part because of diminished property tax returns. Schools and local governments need to maintain the tax base.Should cities and counties be allowed to grant a full property tax exemption to certain low-income seniors?Amendment 11 authorizes cities and counties to grant full homestead property tax relief to low-income seniors who have lived in their home for at least 25 years. In short, it would allow local governments to eliminate the entire property tax bill for qualifying seniors. Homeowners who meet the following requirements would be eligible: 1) aged 65 and older; 2) have a household income of less than $27,030; 3) own a home with a market value of less than $250,000; 4) have lived in the home for at least 25 years. City councils and county commissions must pass the exemption by a super-majority vote before the full exemption can be offered. The measure won unanimous support in the Senate and House. There is no organized opposition. As with all amendments, passage requires approval by 60 percent or more of the voters. If passed, cities and counties would be authorized to grant the exemption beginning Jan. 8, 2013.HistoryVoters in 1998 approved a measure that authorized the Legislature to allow cities and counties to grant a homestead exemption up to $25,000 to seniors over 65 whose household income (at the time of the bills passage) did not exceed $24,200. That homestead exemption was in addition to the $50,000 in exemptions extended to all Florida homeowners. Schools taxes are excluded from the tax break. In 2012, state lawmakers passed a measure to place on the November ballot a proposed amendment authorizing cities and counties to grant a full homestead exemption to qualifying seniors. It became Amendment 11 on the ballot.Fiscal ImpactThe state estimates that the combined tax revenues schools and local governments would lose if Amendment 11 passes, and if every city and county in the state were to approve the exemption, would be a combined $18.5 million over the first two years it was offered. Title on Ballot: Additional Homestead Exemption; Low-Income Seniors Who Maintain Long-Term Residency on Property; Equal to Assessed Value Sponsor/Originator: The Florida Legislature What it would do: This amendment would give an additional property tax exemption to low-income seniors who have lived in their home for more than 25 years. If You Vote Yes: A yes vote means you think cities and counties should have the authority to grant a full property tax discount to eligible seniors. If You Vote No: A no vote means you do not think that cities and counties should have the authority to grant a full property tax discount to eligible seniors. 000D07D Cleanmaster CLEANMASTER CARPET & UPHOLSTERY CLEANING Servicing All Of Citrus & Marion County For 25 Years 489-4844 OWNER DOES THE WORK We Also Have Outdoor Pressure Cleaning Available.

It remains apparent that he is not running on his record but continues to promote class warfare and fear, especially among us seniors. Nothing should take the place of looking at where we are today, our deficit, unemployment, the record number in poverty and on food stamps. Our economy hasnt been this bad since the great depression and this hurts everybody. We cant continue on this downward spiral for there are fewer jobs today than there were four years ago! The only way our situation will improve is by having more citizens finding jobs in our private sector, and I know of no one who is better qualified for creating jobs than Romney. Job creation is his number one priority and he has the track record to prove his success as a businessman. He will quickly turn our economy around because he not only knows what needs to be done, he knows how to do it. He will not harm our Social Security or Medicare, so stop worrying about that. He wants to be sure its there for several generations, not just us. By the time this letter is printed, we should know most of the details regarding the murder of our ambassador and the three other men in our embassy. If the truth reveals a cover up to the magnitude the evidence is now indicating, we have a problem that is much larger than Watergate. Billy Graham and many of our other clergy are publically stating concerns they have about Americas direction, asking us to be true to our God and to seek his will in this election. Think and pray before you vote. May God continue to bless America. Wayne Rackley OcalaInflammatory letterNever before has an election produced such inflammatory letters to The Editor as the current one. Yes, there are serious questions that must be answered, however they must be answered with accurate and appropriate information. In the current issue of the South Marion Citizen one letter was completely, totally inaccurate and devoid of factual information regarding Presidential Executive Orders as signed by President Barack H. Obama. First and foremost, executive orders are and must be for the enforcement of statutes of record and cannot create new laws. Executive orders have been used since our esteemed first presidentGeorge Washington. Second, the EO Numbers are from President John F. Kennedy (10990-11005) President Lyndon B. Johnson (11310) and President Gerald Ford (11921). Third, the number of orders signed by President Obama as of October 15, 2012 is 140, none of them have any reference to the subjects quoted. Fourth, before making assertions that are of dubious character, some research should be completedi.e. Snopes.com, Nationalarchive.gov are just two of the most reputable and trustworthy sites. Bigotry and prejudice have no place in the political arena. Let's endeavour to omit such from our daily lives and commit to honest and open discussion based on our informed opinions as the course America should take in the future. Finally, do not be taken in by half truths. Learn for ourselves and from history, particularly the 3-30 years, ascertaining the facts and interpreting them with open mind. Wilmer Wakeley OcalaExecutive ordersThe article about executive orders in the recent issue of the Citizen has so many errors and misinformation that someone needs to call the writer out on the outrageous claims he is making concerning the issuance of executive orders by the president. He starts off by saying the president has issued 923 executive orders over the 3 1/2 years of his presidency. Wrong!! As of Oct. 15, 2012, Obama has signed 140 executive orders. Ronald Reagan issued 409, the elder Bush 149 and George W. Bush 288. Google snopes.com for the info. Next he cites several orders he claims will take away power and freedom from we the people. His exact words. The executive order he is referring to is nothing more than a restatement of policy that has been in place for decades and grants no authority to the president or the Cabinet that they don't already have under existing law. None of these items revisited claim authority to seize private property and place them at the personal disposal of Obama. The original EO was issued in 1939 and has been superseded or changed a number of times without any fanfair. Why the update? The big change deals with the Cabinet itself since there was not a Dept. of Homeland Security at the time and most duties dealing with defense preparedness in times of national emergency were handled by FEMA, the same folks that now concern themselves with hurricanes, flood, fires. So what this all boils down to is an amending of the Defense Production Act which has been in effect since the Truman administration and which authorizes the president, any president Republican or Democrat, to direct private business to allocate resources to national defense as needed in a time of national emergency in much the same way that rationing was implemented during World war II. Nothing more, nothing less Fritz Lauer Oak RunDont believe everythingReaders, please, please, please, do not believe everything you read, particularly letters to the editor of the South Marion Citizen written by regular conservative contributors. A most recent submission in the Oct. 19 edition is a wonderful example. The writer obviously accepts without any research or fact-checking (oops, sorry for the offensive language!) e-mails and blogs that are consistent with anti-Obama beliefs. In this case, the claim is that President Obama has issued 923 executive orders while his predecessor issued only 62, with 10 examples of numbered orders listed that, in words or the contributor, "definitely take away power and freedom from we the people!" And yes, the descriptions of these orders do seem like they would do just that. But once again pesky facts come into play. According to numerous government, fact-checking and other non-partisan sources on the internet, Obama has actually issued 139 executive orders, and Bush issued 290. And the 10 examples listed? All issued by JFK in 1962, and none even remotely related to the descriptions described in the letter to the editor! One wonders how the letter writer's source could have made this "mistake." I'll be waiting for the letters blaming Obama for the small Social Security increase and the increase in Medicare premiums... Bill Tetzlaff OcalaGreen company brokeThis week another of President Obamas Green companies went broke. That makes 8 or 10 at a cost to taxpayers over a billion dollars. It occurs to me we only hear about these companies twice. When they start up and when they fail. So why does this happen over and over? It is simple. No accountability. I retired from the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad. One third of my career was in planning. Planning was simple. First you estimate income. Then you estimate cost. (It's called a budget) The difference is what you return to the investors. In most cases it is stock holders, in others (a category BNSF now belongs) it is direct investors.

Summary of Amendment (from Division of Elections site):Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to replace the president of the Florida Student Association with the chair of the council of state university student body presidents as the student member of the Board of Governors of the State University System and to require that the Board of Governors organize such council of state university student body presidents.Arguments for:Supporters say this amendment guarantees every university has a chance to have their student body president be named as a representative of the Board of Governors.Arguments against:Opponents say this amendment is unnecessary.Should the state change the way the student representative on the university systems Board of Governors is selected?Amendment 12 concerns the student representative on the Board of Governors, which oversees the states university system. The Board of Governors has 17 members, one of which is the chairman of the Florida Student Association (FSA). If passed, Amendment 12 would instruct the Board of Governors to create a new council consisting of the student body presidents of the states 12 universities. The chair of that new council would replace the chair of the FSA as the student representative to the Board of Governors. This measure won unanimous approval in the House and near unanimous approval in the Senate. As with all amendments, passage requires the approval of 60 percent or more of the votes. If approved by the voters, it would go into effect on Jan. 8, 2013.HistoryIn 2002, roughly 60 percent of Floridas voters approved a constitutional amendment creating a Board of Governors to oversee state universities. Three of its 17 members are seated by virtue of position and 14 are appointed by the governor and subject to confirmation by the Florida Senate. The appointed members serve sevenyear terms. The three members seated by virtue of position are the Florida Education Commissioner, the chair of the Advisory Council of Faculty Senates (representing university faculty), and the chair of the FSA (representing university students). Student body presidents from the states various universities comprise the FSA, which charges membership dues. Over the years, several universities chose not pay the dues and participate in the FSA. As a result their representatives in those years could not have been the student representative on the Board of Governors.The Board of GovernorsBroadly speaking, the Board of Governors oversees the operation of the states 12 universities. It defines the mission of each university, submits annual budgets to the Legislature, governs degree programs and oversees admissions programs, among other duties.The FSA The Florida Student Association formed in 1976 as a not-for-profit research and advocacy group representing university students. A year later the Florida Legislature provided student representation on the Board of Regents (forerunner of the Board of Governors), and in 1978 secured voting rights for the student member of the Regents. A priority of the FSA is keeping tuition increases to a minimum. Over the years it has been involved in efforts to reduce teacher-student ratios and increase voter participation among students, and an advocate for the states pre-paid college program and the Bright Futures Scholarship Program. Its mission is to advocate the interests of the state university students at all levels of government. Friday, October 26, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com Based on insider experiences in presidential campaigns, Republican Mary Matalin and Democrat James Carville answered our question in the title of their book on the subject: Alls Fair: Love, War, and Running for President. Their expertise is enhanced by their political mixed marriage and their familiarity with the movers and shakers of party politics. For his re-election theme song, President Obama added fairness to his signature messages of hope and change: I want an America where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules. Fairness is a vague ideal whose absence has aggravated most of us to exclaim at one time or another. Thats not fair! Though its unknown yet whether Mr. Obamas call for fairness has been a successful campaign slogan, it did prompt Time Magazine to invite a commentary titled The New Culture War over Fairness from Professor Johathon Haidt of the New York University School of Business. According to Professor Haidt, our political parties and their presidential candidates believe in fairness but disagree about what kind of fairness is fair. There are any number of fairnesses. Theres proportional fairwww.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 26, 2012 When a top political candidate comes to visit your area, its a public relations boon, especially when someone like vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan opens his comments by saying what great Florida weather he was experiencing. But Ryans visit to Ocala last week has me thinking of some things, just coming up with some questions without answers. So let me present some of those to you. Was the square the best place to hold this rally? In the middle of a workday? Other people and I have thought of several better places, such as Booster Stadium, the Livestock Pavilion, Veterans Memorial Park, etc. Why was it necessary to close off the streets so early? Ryan wasnt scheduled until noon, but the Boulevard was closed at about 7 a.m. (photographer Ron Ratner got a great picture for us of the closed street). People who didnt know could have been late for work, children could have been late for school, etc. Would it have hurt to wait, say, until 8:30. Did businesses in and around the square gain or lose customers because of the event? Then there was the security. Congressman Cliff Stearns walks around Ocala unencumbered any time he feels like it. Congressman Paul Ryan has a security detail that would make a Third World country proud. Ryan is a candidate, but hasnt been elected yet. Wouldnt a smaller detail do? Did we really need G-men with automatic weapons (someone called them tommy guns) at both the airport and downtown? Did we really need all those security people on the rooftops? And speaking of the airport, was it necessary, or even legal, for these security people to stop photographers from taking pictures outside? In fact, at first they wanted to stop all pictures, anywhere. This is our airport, folks, our rules. If you dont like it, stay in Washington. Why do they call it the Secret Service? Whats so secret about the only people in suits, with their little pin on the lapel and their little earpiece? Hopefully, there were other agents blending in in the crowd who didnt advertise their position. To me, these would be the most effective security personnel. How about the TSA? TSA stands for Transportation Security Administration. The mission, according to the TSA website, is TSA has established guiding principles to maintain the security of the traveling public and continuously set the standard for excellence in transportation security. So was the use of the TSA to conduct security on the square the proper use of the agency? The only transporting being done there was people walking because they had to park so far away. Ive gone to sporting events where you have to go through security. It seems they could have done just as well in providing security. And finally, the big question. Whos paying for all of this, especially all the extra work that local people, including law enforcement, had to do? Please tell me it was the Republican National Committee or some such group, and not the taxpayers of Marion County. Even with all these questions, we thank the Republicans for helping the nation hear about Ocala, and we praise all those who conducted the event and made things run smoothly. And I guess everything is relative. I would have loved to see the crowd limits during Biketoberfest in Daytona Beach when both Romney and Ryan arrived the following day.

Today we come to the end of the list of amendments, and if it took this long to go through them, just think of what the lines will be like on Election Day if you arent prepared or havent voted early. Amendment 10 is a Tangible Personal Property Exemption, which increases the tax exemption on personal property for businesses from $25,000 to $50,000. This is another one of those that could hurt the local government by taking away valuable tax dollars for schools, law enforcement, etc. Were sure that some businessmen think this is a good idea, but smaller businesses may not have enough to worry about it. In other words, this is one that protects the bigger businesses from paying more taxes. As we go through these amendments, we see a constant theme of cutting taxes without any way to make up for the lost revenue. So for this one, were saying vote no. The same argument applies to Amendment 11. The title says Additional Homestead Exemption for Low Income Seniors who Maintain Long Term Residency on Property, Equal to Assessed Valuation. This would give counties and cities the right to grant full homestead exemption to seniors who have lived in their homes for at least 25 years and whose home is less than $250,000. Income must be below $27,000. Again, this sounds good at first blush, but how many low-income seniors do you know who live in a home worth $250,000. This is another hit the counties and cities would take in tax revenue, mainly in other parts of the state, and we cant see any reason to approve it here. Finally, Amendment 12 concerns the appointment of a student body president to the Board of Governors of the State University System. If youve been here a while, you remember the old Board of Regents. In our wisdom we disbanded that for a board of governors and set the standards for choosing members. This would change the way one member, a student representative, is chosen. It seems like an awful lot of paperwork for one person. Frankly, were a little old fashioned on this one. We still feel that you have the faculty and administrators and trustees (board of governors) over here, and the students over there. Why should students be on the board at all? And since theres only one, is that just a token representative so we can say that the students have a voice? This is too much to worry about in a serious election. Just vote no on this one. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY The end of the amendments A nice visit, but whos paying for it? Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Alls fair in love and war: How about politics? Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED ness in which benefits should equal contributions. Equal fairness means same benefits to everyone, regardless of contributions. And theres procedural fairness, which means fair rules as to who gets what. Presidential candidates and their parties may warm up to one kind of fairness for a short time. Then depending on how the political winds are blowing, they may suddenly champion a different concept of fair play. Politics and politicians are fickle. If you dont remember the Fairness Doctrine, it was a 1950s rule of the Federal Communications Commission which directed television networks to provide air time for opposing views on issues of public importance. The unspoken threat in the Doctrine was that the big three television networks CBS, NBC, ABC would have to explain appearances of one-sidedness when they applied to renew their broadcast licenses. At the time, conservatives thought the doctrine was a fair idea. The Fairness Doctrine was repealed in 1987, during the Reagan administration. Even though the doctrine had received an OK from the Supreme Court, Reagan and his successor, the first President Bush, disliked that brand of fairness. When Democrats took back control of Congress during the first two years of the Obama administration, the Fairness Doctrine looked like an inviting way to put pins in the balloons of right-wing radio talk shows, which were slamming President Obamas stimulus program. The possibility that the doctrine would be revived caused conservatives to howl: Not fair. President Obama didnt think reinstating the Fairness Doctrine was a good idea either, so Congress let it drift back into obscurity. Seasoned and successful campaigner that he is, Mr. Obama apparently decided a vague campaign call for fair shots, fair shares, and fair rules would be more appealing to voters. Thats smart campaigning. Depending on the election outcome, Republicans may end up wondering why they didnt campaign on fair taxation, fair health care, fair energy, and fair immigration no details, just hope and change. It worked for Mr. Obama, and may work again. Editors note: To avoid any last-minute attack letters that cant be answered, today will be the last day that letters about the election will be published. Retraction of Executive OrdersInformation on the above which was in the last letter I sent to this paper was erroneous. The reliable sources that provided me the particulars on these orders were given incorrect information which hasnt happened previously, and I apologize for this error.

Friday, October 26, 2012 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, October 26, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good time to speak out on a difficult situation. Youre known for your honesty, so people will listen and, perhaps, begin to make long-needed changes. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovines sharp business sense alerts you to question the positions of those trying to push the Bull into a deal. Demand to see proof of what they profess. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your quick thinking helps you get out of a troubling situation that was suddenly thrust upon you. Later on, you can expect to learn more about why it happened. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel youve dotted all your is and crossed all your ts regarding that upcoming deal. But there might be some facts youve ignored. Check again. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Time for the Lion to be more physically active. It will help shake off any lingering Leonine lethargy and restore your energy levels, so youll be prepared for what lies ahead. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Helping those in need at this time is laudable. But dont ignore your own needs, especially where it concerns your health. A medical checkup is a wise move. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Good news: Your outspoken views about a controversial on-the-job situation could find unexpectedly strong support from a most unlikely workplace faction. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might have to draw on your reservoir of spiritual strength to help someone special through a difficult time. Your loving attitude makes all the difference. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your proven leadership qualities make you the perfect person to take on an important workplace task. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Although some compromise might need to be reached regarding your stand on an important issue, youll still be able to get the most crucial points across. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A chance to make a career change carries both positive and uncertain possibilities. Best advice: Check it out thoroughly and dont be rushed into a decision. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Youre still a staunch supporter of one side of an important issue. But be prepared to deal with new information that could cause you to question your current stand. BORN THIS WEEK: Youre perceptive and quick to act when you sense that someone needs help. You are an always-dependable friend. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

LOSERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 CEPCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 SLEEP TOWARD HEAVEN By Amanda Eyre WardHeres a quick read and I mean it; you can finish it in an afternoon. Its about three womens intersecting lives although they have little in common. Some readers may predict the ending but others will find it surprising. In Gatestown, Texas, 29year-old Karen Lowes, a serial killer, awaits her execution. In Manhattan Dr. Franny Wren longs to escape her suffocating life and her mismatched fianc. In Austin, Texas beautiful Celia Mills struggles to find life meaningful again after the murder of her beloved husband. All three embark on a painful journey involving the meaning of life, death, and forgiveness. Just months before her scheduled wedding Franny Wren is poised to flee Manhattan for her native Texas but wonders if change will really make a difference: When do you stop trusting the instinct to run? When do you accept that you will never feel at home, no matter where you go? When do you make yourself stay? Meanwhile, on Death Row Karen awaits her execution in the company of other murderersjaded, embittered women still protesting their innocence. Conditions are horrible: a TV blares constantly, doors slam open and shut, women scream and yell and bang their cell bars with trays. Every two days or so they are stripsearched. Ward does an excellent job of researching Huntsville, the prison system and the death sentence and without any pious sermonizing. Along the way she does some heavy lifting from news media. Karens crimes and personal life, for instance, are taken straight from Aileen Wuornos story. Still another inmate has a story very much like that of Darlie Routier, the woman convicted of stabbing her two small sons while her husband slept upstairs. Declaring her innocence she believes the conviction was Quick, powerful story about two women BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington PLEASESEEBOOK, PAGE30 the result of a misguided birthday party over the graves of her children, complete with balloons and silly string. Each chapter in Sleep Toward Heaven develops the perspective of one of the three damaged women. The writing is spare and powerful and compellingly written. BOOKCONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 Workforce Connection of Citrus, Levy and Marion counties cautions jobseekers to be alert for scammers usurping the names of legitimate businesses and organizations to take advantage of those looking for work. Workforce Connection CEO Rusty Skinner said that the regional workforce board decided to issue the warning after hearing about the problem from other workforce boards. In Panama City, he said, the Gulf Coast Workforce Board recently reported scammers posted jobs on the Employ Florida Marketplace luring jobseekers who, when they responded, were instructed to send money in advance for required job training. Scammers are unscrupulous, clever and are often very good at what they do, Skinner said. It is unconscionable that these imposters are taking money from people who are diligently seeking employment. The Employ Florida Marketplace, or EFM, is the states premier online job bank and used by all 24 regional workforce boards. Even though EFM posts scamming warnings on nearly every page, Skinner said that when someone is searching for work and finds what appears to be a promising job, its easy to get excited and let your guard down. Skinner noted that so far there have been no reports of similar employment scams in Citrus, Levy and Marion counties.

John Messeroll OcalaJohn Messeroll, loved husband and best friend of wife, Terri and beloved father of five children, died peacefully in his sleep Sunday morning, Oct. 7, 2012. The children, John Messeroll and wife Bonnie, Jeff Messeroll and Sandi Mangino, Jim Messeroll and Karen Jervic, Merrie and Mike Chasan, Kerrin and Don Ancrun, and their families, all live in New Jersey. John leaves six cherished grandchildren, Nicole and Kelsie Chasan, Jack and Alyse Messeroll, Tagg Ancrum and Kai Messeroll, and two cherished step grandchildren, Erica Ward (newly married to Joe Ward) and Conor Jervic. A graduate of Rutgers University, John attended Rutgers law school. He was director of Purchasing and Acquisitions with Harper and Row Publishers 5th Avenue, NYC. He left H&R to become CEO of Princeton Archives and later CEO of Delta Group. John had an entrepreneurial spirit and developed a variety of businesses. He was owner/developer of Princeton Consortium and Community Pride Publications in Princeton, N.J. The Consortium published small books, trade magazines, directories, educational guides, sports, health bulletins, medical monthly newsletters, elementary teachers guides etc., for libraries, businesses, coaches, schools and colleges including Tufts University, Princeton University, Johnson and Johnson Medical Health. Community Pride Publishing House was best known for its New Jersey and Pennsylvania area guide lifestyle magazines including Middlesex, Monmouth, Somerset, Atlantic Counties, Princeton, New Brunswick, New Hope, Bucks County, Pa., and others. He was proud of his award winning Pa. Fortune magazine. He was very active in the community and church. John was in various organizations, National Publishers Association, AIP, NAP He sat on the board of directors of Princeton Chamber of Commerce, New Brunswick Chamber of Commerce, Alpha Pregnancy Center of Princeton and New Hope Pennsylvania. He was a philanthropic and caring man. The sign over his desk stated his priorities and guide for living. It read God ~ Family ~ Country. When Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, John and Terri went to help as volunteers. There John accepted a job working for Homeland Security, NSA and Fema Recovery, while Terri worked with Red Cross and later Catholic Intercity Mission. John retired to Ocala, Fla., in December 2006, but in a few months was reactivated back to New Mexico and Louisiana. His contract extended until he recently retired in July 2012. He was requested back for a 30-day temporary emergency DEA assignment and he returned to New Orleans for this deployment just weeks ago. He decided that this would be his last assignment and obviously God was in agreement. With retirement imminent John jokingly said he could now finish law school and try to decipher some of Floridas unique legalities. Our hearts are full of sorrow, yet we rejoice knowing that our dear one is with our Lord and Savior ~and his Heavenly Father. John is cherished and already deeply missed. Funeral Mass and services will be in New Jersey. There will be a memorial service in our adopted Crescent City, New Orleans, and here in Florida at a later date.

A health fair and seminar sessions will continue through the afternoon. Hannah Curlee will share her inspiring story of life-changing weight loss and help others recognize how they too can achieve weight loss and healthy living goals. Curlee is half the woman she used to be or 51.6 percent of her former self, to be exact. Curlee and her sister, Olivia Ward, were the top two finishers on Season 11 of NBCs The Biggest Loser reality show. By the shows end, Curlee had dropped from 248 pounds to 128, a 120-pound loss. For viewers, the transformation was startling. For Curlee, it was life altering. We are thrilled that Hannah is visiting Ocala and participating in an event directed at helping the women of greater Marion County make more informed decisions about their healthcare, said Ginger Carroll, CEO of Ocala Healths West Marion Community Hospital. Women are the primary decision makers when it comes to the health and well-being of their family. Whether it concerns their children, husbands, parents, themselves, possibly even friends or neighbors, women carefully weigh the healthcare choices they have to make. This forum will offer attendees access to a number of resources in a variety of medical specialties, Carroll added. During the health fair, attendees will have an opportunity to speak one-on-one with clinical specialists in cardiovascular disease, orthopedics, bariatric surgery, diabetes, nutrition, diagnostic imaging, neuroscience, and womens health.

Here are some of the attractions that spectators seemed to enjoy. BY JIM CLARK EditorSpurred on by an overflow crowd consisting mainly of enthusiastic supporters, Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan spoke Thursday at the Ocala Downtown Square. With red the predominant color, people from all over jammed downtown for what was billed as a victory rally, a gathering that for all practical purposes shut down center city for much of the day. After addressing the crowd, Ryan, running mate for former Gov. Mitt Romney, said he was turning it into a town hall meeting, and took a few questions directly from the audience, although the diversity and tone of the questions made some wonder if they were pre-arranged. One of the questioners praised him for not using a Teleprompter. As he approached the stage, there were a few minor chants of four more years for President Obama, but those were quickly drowned out by the crowd yelling no more years. Ryan, who earlier had flown a campaign jet into Ocala International Airport, was given a rousing introduction by PHOTO BY RON RATNERVice presidential candidate Paul Ryan arrives.
