For those who are not voting early, Election Day is next Tuesday, Nov. 6, with polls open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The long ballot contains several local races, some statewide and, of course, the vote for president of the United States. Under the presidential race, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are listed first, and they are followed by 10 others from other parties. After the vote for president, there are four people on the ballot in the race for the U.S. Senate, including Connie Mack and Bill Nelson. Also on the list with no party affiliation are Bill Gaylor and Chris Borgia. Depending on where you live, there are Congressional, state Senate and state House races on the ballot. In Marion County, there are four contested countywide elections, starting with the battleground of the race of sheriff. The ballot lists Dan Kuhn and Bernie DeCastro, but Kuhn has withdrawn and Chris Blair is now the candidate. However, to vote for Blair, voters must fill in the ballot for Kuhn. The case is still in court, where DeCastro is trying to get Blair either thrown off the ballot, since he already lost in the primary, or have absentee votes for Kuhn that were sent in before Blair replaced Kuhn tossed out. The other key local races, almost lost in the shadows of the sheriffs battle, include George Tomyn vs. Diana Greene in the race for superintendent of schools, Wesley Wilcox vs. Judge Cochran for supervisor of elections and Earl Arnett vs. Jessica Hadley for County Commission. Two other commission candidates, David Moore and Stan McClain, are on the ballot with no opposition listed, although there are write-in candidates. Because the Florida Legislature is controlled by Republicans, the GOP is listed first in each race. There are three Florida Supreme Court justices up for merit retention, 11 state Constitution amendments and, at the end of the ballot, the bond issue for Munroe County Hospital District. For those who have absentee ballots, they must be returned to the Supervisor of Elections office by 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Those who are mailing the ballots back are reminded that it costs 65 cents in postage because of the size of the ballot. It is suggested that people vote early on Tuesday, Lines are expected.

Elementary school students now have own virtual schoolMarion County opened its newest public school last week without building a single traditional brick-andmortar classroom. Instead, its virtual schooling, available online 24/7 to students at elementary grade levels. The new school, called Marion e-Learning, offers students in kindergarten through fifth grade the option to enroll in online classes for a custom-tailored education. They work at their own pace, on their own time, in their own space. Regular face-to-face meetings keep students and teachers familiar with each other. Science fair participation, field trips, and awards ceremonies are some of the activities available to students. The online experience offers students interactive multi-media content and is available free of charge. Students must have their own computer with Internet access, webcam, microphone, and access to a public library. Teachers are state-certified and developed the actual curriculum, which is aligned to Common Core state standards. The addition of Marion e-Learning means Marion County Public Schools now offers a complete online K-12 education experience.

ANYITEMPRICEDUNDER $100MAXIMUM 10 WORDS RUNSFOR 2 WEEKS FREE TOLL FREE 1-877-676-1403 Expert testimony from scientists appearing before the NRC judges on behalf of the Ecology Party of Florida and Nuclear Information & Resource Service (NIRS) warned that construction and operation of the proposed dual reactors would deplete the regions aquifer, cause saltwater intrusion to the already-imperiled local water supply, and harm fragile springs and wetland plants and wildlife in the area. The location of the proposed two-reactor project is nine miles inland from the Gulf coast, in an ecologically rich area consisting of forest and more than 700 acres of fresh-water wetlands. The wetlands play a critical role in the ecological health of the region and provide habitat for endangered and threatened species such as the Florida manatee and wood storks. We are talking about Progress Energy trashing important wetland areas of the United States, said Ecology Party of Florida Treasurer Gary Hecker. The notion that a massive nuclear reactor project can reverse the flow of water from fresh to saltwater and have no impact on this delicate ecosystem is preposterous. And we take no comfort whatsoever in Progress Energys glib assertions that the problem somehow can be mitigated after massive and most likely irreversible damage is done in the region. Mary Olson, director of NIRS Southeast U.S. office, said: Now that the NRC is headed by a respected geologist, our hope is that the very weak geology science that went into the Levy reactor site review will be a thing of the past. Knowing of NRC Chair Allison Macfarlanes outstanding credentials, it is our hope that a review that blindly rubberstamps the wishes of industry will be replaced by a more independent and serious-minded approach to bona fide geology concerns. The testimony of the experts contradicts an environmental study prepared by the NRC finding that the effects of the two reactors on the wetlands will be relatively minor. The groups and their experts contend the NRCs conclusion is wrong because it grossly oversimplifies the complex karst geology and hydrology of the region. Experts on karst geology testified that the planned water withdrawals will very likely dry up springs and wetlands in localized areas throughout the region, threatening wildlife and the fragile wetland ecosystems and causing existing wells to become more saline. The Ecology Party of Florida is a political party that believes that environmental protection is of paramount importance because without a healthy environment quality of life suffers. Nuclear Information and Resource Service, founded in 1978 by grassroots activists, serves as an information clearinghouse for members of public concerned about nuclear safety. NIRS also promotes a non-nuclear U.S. energy policy. Retirement Ceremony Senior Chief Petty Officer Robert A. Morrissette hugs his mother, Barbara Jaggers of Ocala, the South Marion Citizens circulation coordinator, as Capt. Mark Wegge looks on. Morrissette, a graduate of Forest High School, was honored on the occasion of his retirement after 25 years of service. The ceremony was held at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center on Oct. 20. Jaggers was presented with the Military Parent Medal (inset) during the ceremony. NUKE CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Hospice volunteers needed Volunteers Needed.

She was born in West Des Moines, Iowa March 19, 1918 and graduated from Valley Junction High School. While in high school Maxine discovered her natural talent for music, playing instruments ranging from the French horn to bass drum. Music was a passion she explored and enjoyed throughout her entire life. Upon graduating from high school Maxine attended Business College in Des Moines, Iowa. While in Business College she began corresponding with a classmate whom she had known since the second grade. This cross-country correspondence blossomed into a lifelong romance with the love of Maxines life Frank Wood. With the onset of WWII, Frank served overseas while Maxine supported the home front by volunteering her time supporting the war effort and in raising their young son, Dennis. Following WWII, Maxine was active in church and community organizations during which time her second son, Gary, was born. Maxines early married years were spent in Virginia raising her sons, instilling a love and appreciation of American history which they enjoy to this day. In 1959, with her beloved Franks job transfer, she moved her family west to Downers Grove, Ill., where they resided for the next 30 years. In 1989, Maxine moved to Ocala where she attended the Ocala West United Methodist Church. She was a lifelong member of the Womens Society of Christian Service (WSCS) and was very active in the Oak Run Community. While living in Central Florida, she pursued her hobbies of raising African Violets and knitting hats, scarves, and blankets for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Maxine is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 71 years, Frank H. Wood; and is survived by children, Dennis Wood and his wife, Penny of Washington State, and Gary Wood and his wife, Nancy of Dacula, Ga.; grandchildren, Stephen, Michael, Douglas, Kimberly, and Kelley plus nine great-grandchildren. Maxine touched and affected the lives of many people she will be dearly missed by all. Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service at 1 p.m., Friday, Nov. 9, 2012 at Ocala West United Methodist Church with Pastor Alan Jefferson officiating. Memorial contributions may be given to United Methodist Women (in memory of Maxine) via Ocala West UMC at Ocala West UMC 9330 S.W. 105th Street Ocala, Fl 34481.

RESTORE is concerned that this dramatic change positions the region for a real estate gold rush. A huge development already planned for the shores of Moosehead Lake in the region is just one example of the kinds of changes afoot that could decimate the regions wilderness qualities. RESTOREs proposal, first aired in 1994, calls for setting aside 3.2-million acres surrounding Baxter State Park (home of Maines tallest peak, Mt. Katahdin, and the northern tip of the Appalachian Trail) as a national park. Bigger than Yellowstone and Yosemite combined, the proposed park would safeguard thousands of miles of rivers and streams while providing unfragmented habitat for wildlife. According to RESTORE, there are no significant chunks of undeveloped wilderness anywhere in the Northeastern United States and that such a large park is needed to protect wildlife habitat on a landscape scale to allow for adaptation in the face of unprecedented climate change. Also, the proposed park would ensure permanent access for outdoor recreation and support a diversified and sustainable economy. Although RESTOREs campaign has the backing of a majority of Maine residents, it has failed to gain enough traction to make it before Congress. Some blame local opposition, allied as the Maine Woods Coalition, for convincing the states Congressional delegation not to push for the proposal. A new proposal from Burts bees founder Roxanne Quimby later rekindled the issue: In May 2011 she ofEARTH TALKCONTINUED FROM PAGE 29 fered to donate up to 70,000 acres she owns adjacent to Baxter State Park for a new national park, along with a $40 million endowment for park operations. And to appease those opposed to RESTOREs proposal, she offered a similar amount of land for multiple-use, including hunting. Quimbys proposal includes only lands she owns, and would create a much smaller park than what RESTORE envisioned. A few months after Quimby made her offer known U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis held a public listening session in Millinocket, Maine. But then in February 2012, Maines Congressional delegation convinced Secretary Salazar to table the new proposal for the time being. So for now, the fate of millions of treesthe veritable lungs of the Northeastern U.S.and hundreds of wildlife species may just hang in the balance. 000D3UT M i l l e n n i u m H a i r S a l o n at our new location 8 2 9 6 S W 1 0 3 r d S t R d 3 5 2 2 3 7 3 6 7 6 M o n d a y F r i d a y 9 5 S a t u r d a y 9 4 W a l k I n s W e l c o m e A Certified Goldwell Color Salon With coupon.

On that date the sea ice reached its summer minimum, 1.32 million square miles, half of what the average size of summer ice was between 1979 and 2000, and almost 20 percent lower than the previous record minimum of 1.61 million square miles set on Sept. 18, 2007. NSIDC added that, despite especially warm conditions in 2007 being much more favorable for sea ice loss than this year, the thinning of sea ice due to climate change has made the ice more vulnerable to breakup and melting. Meanwhile, researchers with the European Space Agencys CryoSat-2 probe reported in August that beyond the loss of sea-ice extent, the thickness and volume of the ice has also been declining significantly faster than expected. They found just 1,679 cubic miles this past summer as compared to 3,118 cubic miles in the summer of 2004. They anticipate that the Arctic could be ice-free in the summer for a day or more by the end of the decade. The implications of such melting are potentially immense. For starters, wildlife like polar bears, seals and walruses depend on sea ice for their survival; their habitat is literally being pulled out from under them. Polar bears were added to the federal Endangered Species List in 2008 for this very reason in what environmentalists herald as a great victory in that the federal government officially recognized the existence of global warming and would therefore be able to take more decisive action to rein in carbon pollutionof course, that part of the dream has yet to be realized. Perhaps even more alarming is the fact that melting sea ice and accelerating Arctic warming spur changes in the jet stream that increase the frequency of weather extremes like droughts, floods, heat waves and cold spells in the mid-latitude regions of the Northern Hemisphere. The fact that 2012 has been a scorcher all aroundJuly was the hottest month on record, with two-thirds of the U.S. in drought, wildfires running rampant and half the counties in the country designated as federal disaster areasonly makes the connection between carbon pollution and the greenhouse effect all the more apparent. Environmentalists argue that we already have the technology and the legal tools to achieve rapid greenhouse pollution reductions Full use of all of the Clean Air Acts successful pollution-reduction programs is our best route to quick reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, says Shaye Wolf, climate science director at the Center for Biological Diversitys Climate Law Institute. The Obama administration, however, has been too slow and timid in using this bedrock law to cut pollution. The polar meltdown shows were teetering on the brink of climate-change catastrophe, adds Wolf. Arctic sea ice plays a critical role in regulating the planets climate. We cant wait any longer to cut carbon pollution. Dear E arthTalk : What s the latest on the proposal to turn parts of the Northern Forest in Maine into a big national park ? -Peter G riswold J affrey NH The idea of turning a large chunk of forest in central Maine into a national park dates back at least 150 years when Henry David Thoreau himself called for making the region a national preserve in essays about his travels through the area via foot and canoe in the 1850s. To this day most of the areas in central Maine that Thoreau visited are still primarily undeveloped save for intermittent timber extraction. But recent changes in land ownership there are worrying ecologists. The non-profit RESTORE: The North Woods has been carrying the torch for creating a Maine Woods National Park and Preserve for 20 years and reports that, between 1994 and 2005, the share of forest land in Maines 9.3 million acre Unorganized Territory Arctic summer sea levels at lowest point ever E ARTH TALK PLEASESEEEARTH TALK PAGE30 CANADIAN MEDS 000CZJK 7380 SW 60th Ave., Ste #1, Ocala 237-0021 Locally Owned and Operated NEW CUSTOMERS PRESENT THIS AD AND GET $10 OFF!

Friday, November 2, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com A fter suffering the longest and most boring presidential campaign in our lifetime, we sought relief by voting early. To share our relief we decided to amuse our readers with a selection of thoughts about government, elections, and politicians. Author Robert Louis Stevenson suggested that politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation seems to be necessary. Attorney Clarence Darrow affirmed Mr. Stevensons thought: When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become president. Now Ive come to believe it. Do you ever wonder whether the real reason we hold elections is to find out if any of the polls were right? Perhaps next time we could rely on the polls. Theyre faster and less expensive. After all, elections are just the process by which we select the people who will get the blame for everything. Could it be that political campaigns are just contrived exhibitions of political hysteria, intended to distract voters from the real issues by paralyzing their ability to think? Columnist and essayist Simeon Strunsky believes popular government is only a theory, because no one has yet found a government that is popular at least not for very long. Irish playwright and critic George Bernard Shaw explained that the chief defect of democracies is that only the party out of office knows how the government should be run. Author and critic H.L. Mencken also tried to explain the problem. He said democratic government is like running a circus from inside the monkey cage. Presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson said in 1952 that the ultimate indignity of the election process is that you can merchandise candidates for high office like breakfast cereal. On the positive side, elections are the only races in which most people pick the winner. The person elected gets 51 percent of the votes cast by the 60 percent of eligible voters who bothered to register. Perhaps government is too big and too important to be left to politicians. As one observer noted, government is the only vessel that leaks from the top. Nothing is easier than spending public money. Because it doesnt seem to belong to anybody, the temptation to spend it is overwhelming. Theres a myth that government can do any job cheaply because it doesnt have to make a profit. The business of government is to stay out of business, but somehow government has become a senior partner in every business in the country. In Congress members rise to speak and say nothing. Nobody listens. Then everybody disagrees. Nonetheless, Congress seems to favor a stable government, judging by the amount of stalling and horsing around that goes on. Mr. Dooley (Finley Peter Dunne) observed that a man who expects to train lobsters to fly is considered a lunatic and confined to an asylum. But a man who believes politicians can be turned into angels by getting elected is called a reformer and is allowed to remain at large. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, November 2, 2012 T here are three people on the ballot who have received more than the usual attention this year. Their names are R. Fred Lewis, Barbara J. Pariente and Peggy A. Quince. Whats that? Youre not familiar with them? Well, theyre the three Florida Supreme Court justices due for a merit retention vote on Nov. 6. This year, the retention vote has me a little bit indecisive. Justices, and appellate judges, must be on the ballot every six years. Since the system was instituted in the 1970s, no justice has ever been rejected. The system was put in because of supposed corruption in the partisan election of judges before that. But this year, theres a push to defeat all three. Its because of an Obamacare ruling, where they were part of a majority that struck down a proposed state amendment that would have said that Floridians may not be required to buy the mandated insurance under the health care plan. The push comes mainly from Republicans, who feel the ruling did not reflect the will of the people, who they feel would have passed the amendment. A similar amendment made it through to the ballot this year. Theres a lot of hand-wringing about this movement, saying that people are trying to politicize the court. Well, sorry folks, but the courts have already done that themselves. Many courts, including the highest court in the land, often vote on the side of the party that appointed them, without regard to the will of the people. Theyre supposed to rule based on the law, but its no surprise that to each of them the law comes down on the side of one political party. All three of these justices were appointed by the late Gov. Lawton Chiles, a Democrat, although Quince also had the backing of incoming Republican Gov. Jeb Bush. This movement has had success before, but not in Florida. In Iowa, three justices were removed because of a ruling permitting same-sex marriage, and a fourth is on the ballot this year. This race this year has presented a quandary for me. You see, I dont believe in lifetime appointments for any judges, whether federal or state. When you appoint people to a lifetime anything, they can get complacent and possibly not approach their assignment with the zeal that is needed. As a result of being in favor of term limits, I always vote no for merit retention for all judges. I think a steady turnover would be healthy for the districts, state and nation. I do feel that an amendment in the state against Obamacare is a waste of time. The only way to get rid of that health plan is to knock the Democrats out of the White House and Congress. I really dont understand why people are fanatical about trying to take action at the state level. Anyone whos been around knows that this is a futile effort. So how to vote? Do I vote to punish the three justices who pretty much said the same thing, that this is a federal problem that wont be solved at the state level? Do I vote against these three justices because of my usual term limit bias, knowing full well that for the first time, my vote in this issue may, for a change, actually count? Or do I go against my general principles and vote to keep these justices on the court for another six years? At this writing, Ive still got a little time to make up my mind. But Ill be watching the vote count very closely on the night of Nov. 6 or more likely, in the morning hours of Nov. 7.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

I t all comes down to one day. This coming Tuesday, Nov. 6, is Election Day, which will mark the end (we hope) of all the nastiness and bickering, interrupting phone calls and wild television ads. Its all up to you, now. If you havent voted early, then be prepared for a bit of a wait, but help yourself by reading your sample ballot and being prepared when you go to the polls. Its the 11 amendments that are clogging the ballot, all of them thanks to the Legislature, none of them what we would call grass roots amendments. Its all the doing of our Tallahassee legislators. Polling places will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Then the scene turns to the Supervisor of Elections office, where ballots will be tallied. At this writing, there is still a dispute concerning the sheriffs race. It involves the counting of absentee ballots for Dan Kuhn, which now will be credited to Chris Blair. There is a state law here that could negate any challenge by Bernie DeCastro, but he does have a point. He wants all the ballots that voted for Dan Kuhn before Blair was named to replace him to be thrown out. It does seem to be a fair point when he says theres no guarantee that all those absentee early voters who voted for Kuhn might not have voted that way if they knew they were voting for Blair. Of course, our stand hasnt changed. Were basically against voting early, and this dispute only magnifies the argument we have made all along, even before the sheriffs race controversy. When you vote early, you lose the right to change your vote should anything happen before Nov. 6 that would change the landscape. In this case the change was major, but those who already voted are out of luck. The law specifically says that once an absentee ballot is submitted, it cant be altered. Of course, those who wrote the law probably never envisioned what is taking place in our local sheriffs race, but thats hindsight. The fact is that those who voted early by absentee ballot cant change their minds, even though they thought they were voting for Kuhn, and are now voting for Blair. This story undoubtedly isnt over, but regardless, if you havent voted, make sure you get out there on Tuesday. While the national race for president is drawing the most attention across the U.S., there are several other key races. You have the power to help decide. Make sure you use it. We will have a link on our website to the vote tally. Go to smcitizen.com for all the latest figures on election night. Be aware also that, as we stated last week and in the issues before that, no political letters are being published in this final edition before the vote. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Now the election is up to you Merit retention and Floridas courts Jim Flynn Columnist Be of good cheer; end of the election is near Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED the 11 Amendments are provided in the 2012 Florida Election & Voter Guide newspaper that has been circulated in the community so his comments are in addition to that publication. He also provided opportunity for questions on the ballot. Do not forget to vote for the last item on the ballot (after Amendment #12). This bond issue concerns Munroe Regional Hospital which is of particular significance to our community. MRMC is the largest private employer in Marion County with 2,479 employees at an average annual compensation of $42,781. The total annual economic impact of Munroe to the County is estimated at $525 million. The Amendments and the local bond issues will affect you in some way so read the newspaper outlining the impact of yes or no vote, and ask questions before you vote so that you are clear on the impact you want.

BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen If we needed evidence of the impoverishment of American politics, the socalled debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney gave us all we could ask for. We normally expect a debate to highlight some disagreement, but in American politics disagreement is reserved for minor matters. The two parties actually the two divisions of the uniparty that represents the permanent regime agree on all fundamentals. If you need proof, observe how the establishment media treated Ron Paul, who challenged the permanent regimes basic premises on foreign policy, civil liberties, and monetary control. He dug too deep. Its been noted, mostly by humorists, that Romney continuously expressed his agreement with Obama across a range of issues: drone warfare, Iran, Afghanistan, even Iraq. He tried to manufacture differences by suggesting that he would have done more sooner. But this all sounded flaccid; Romney seemed desperate to draw some contrast with a foreign policy that he embraces. What does Romney really believe? Who can say? What we do know is that hes taking his foreign-policy advice from a team of neoconservatives, formerly of the George W. Bush administration, who helped dig the hole the country is in. Obama, for his part, defended his record, which someone other than Romney could have torn to shreds. Obama brags about ending the occupation of Iraq, yet he forgets that Bush had already signed an agreement, insisted on by the Iran-friendly Iraqi government, to get out by the end of 2011. What Obama wont tell you is that he begged Prime Minister Maliki to ask U.S. troops to remain. Thankfully, Maliki said no. Obama of course also mentioned the killing of Osama bin Laden. Two things about that: First, capture and trial would have been a better example for the world than summary execution by Navy SEALs. Second, the enfeebled bin Laden was a has-been by May 2011, having been kicked upstairs when he started devising impossible plots. He was no threat to the American people. Someone other than Romney might have pointed out that Obamas policy has helped to spread al-Qaedas influence beyond Afghanistan and Iraq. Thanks to the presidents drone warfare which regularly murders innocents and other interventions, there are now al-Qaeda affiliates or sympathizers in Libya, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Mali, and elsewhere. But Romney cant point this out, because he approves of Obamas imperialist policy and drone warfare. He apparently cant wait until he, like Obama, gets to personally choose targets from a presidential kill list. And then theres Iran. At the debate, Romney lauded Obamas crippling sanctions on the Iranian economy. But there is no such thing as an economy. There are only people engaged in buying and selling. Obama and Romney both say that war against Iran should be a last resort. But if that is the case, why do they dehumanize the people of Iran? Sanctions dont cripple the Iranian economy. Sanctions cripple people economically, nutritionally, and in every other respect. They make life hell for average people, especially children and the elderly. The rulers suffer least of all. Both candidates take it for granted that Iran is working toward a nuclear bomb, and that when it gets one, the American and Israeli people will be at risk. How many times did Romney say that the country is four years closer to a bomb? Of course, the debate moderator, Bob Schieffer of CBS, never challenged that premise. Like all good network stenographers, he lets his questions propagandize on behalf of the permanent regime. There are two problems with all of this: According to American and Israeli intelligence, there is no evidence Iran wants a bomb. Furthermore, even if Iran got one, all it would be good for is deterrence against continuing U.S. and Israeli domination of the Middle East. No one seriously thinks the Iranian regime is suicidal. America has thousands of nukes; Israel has hundreds. So what good would a warhead or two do Iran, even if it was intent on becoming a nuclear power? Obama and Romney are both conceited enough to think a U.S. president can and should orchestrate events in the Muslim world. That alone is reason enough to reject them both.

BY ENID B. JONES Special to the Citizen The next meeting of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club will be Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. at Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. In keeping with the excitement of the approaching election, our September meeting focused on the voting process and the November ballot in Florida. The topics for the discussion at this meeting were the amendments that will be on the ballot in November and restoring civil rights at a time when voter rights are being challenged in Florida. Our guest speakers, Mr. and Mrs. Whitfield Jenkins, were uniquely qualified to talk about these areas because of their long life of service to community. Mrs. Loretta Pompey Jenkins is serving her second term as the non-partisan president of the local branch of Marion County NAACP She has served 30 years as a member of this organization. At the same time she held the position of elementary school principal in the Marion County School System and is now retired after a 33-year tenure. Her words reflected her experience in Florida as she talked about the audacity of the state government in its attempt to take away or suppress the right of the individual to vote. The right to vote is particularly sensitive to African Americans and very centralized in their world because of their struggles to obtain such a right. Another area of significance is the restoration of right of felons to vote. House Bill 1355 under the current Florida state government has made the restoration process more difficult. Yet, this right can be obtained by following the process which includes paying off all outstanding fines incurred and meeting conditions that are laid out. In other words try to restore your right it is too important to ignore. She mentioned that despite the fact that African Americans in New York and five other states owned property before emancipation and therefore could vote, no such right existed in the southern states. Since emancipation, the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendment of the U.S. constitution each played a role in ensuring this right to exslaves and their descendants. Again, the 1965 the Voting Right Act helped African Americans who were burdened by state laws, obtain the right to vote. It is therefore particularly difficult to see that in 2011 the state of Florida passed laws to suppress the right to vote for seniors, minority populations and our youth especially since these groups voted in record numbers in 2008. There has also been no major finding of voter fraud in Florida which was the reason given for setting up these barriers. Mrs. Jenkins stated that the NAACP and other organizations have come together to knock down barriers in states that are bent on suppression of votes by mobilizing teams to carry out specific actions that will enhance the ability of eligible voters to vote. Voters should do the following: Register to vote using the correct required process; take advantage of early voting (the ballot is lengthy and will take time so vote before Nov. 6); use the Souls to the Polls transportation strategy in churches; educate each other as about the items on the ballot so we are all educated voters; check out precinct changes with Supervisor of Elections Office which is very user friendly; use mail-in ballots and avoid the long wait (make sure to mail ballot early); be sure to sign and date ballot; vote the entire ballot including local and state issues; spread the word to all to go and vote; and be aware of important dates: Early voting begins Oct. 27 at specific precincts, last request for mail-in ballot Oct. 31, early voting ends Nov. 3, and Election Day Nov. 6. Mr. Whitfield Jenkins is currently Field Services Representative American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees. In his work tenure he received several honors for his service to the City of Ocala and from the Marion County Board of Commission, as well as Marion County Branch of the NAACP He and his wife are dedicated to serving Marion County communities and he too is concerned about voter suppression. There is a published Map of Shame that shows all the states involved in similar suppression laws as the ones in Florida, despite the lack of evidence of voter fraud in these states. (Contact NAACP 352-351-4560 for more information on map). Mr. Jenkins gave a nonpartisan explanation of the Amendments to the Florida Constitution that will be on the November ballot in order to help speed up the process on election-day. Comments onFriday, November 2, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, November 2, 2012 www.smcitizen.com I was off to the airport on another trip. I started out early, arrived at the airport on time but when I arrived the plane had canceled and I had to apply for another plane. The next plane headed for my destination was about two hours away. This would in fact, make me miss my connecting flight. I suppose I ought to be grateful that I was able to catch a later flight. It gave me some time to sit in the airport with nothing to do but think. Talk about a boring afternoon! One of the things I thought about was never flying again. But, necessity is the mother of inconvenience, or something like that. While I was thinking in the airport, I thought of a wise old man who, waxing philosophical, once said, Time waits for no man. I know he was wise because he did not include women in his observation. Although time will wait for no man, it has a different approach to women. Usually speaking, a man welcomes the passing of time. Proudly he displays those wrinkles and calluses as marks of manhood. Until recently, gray hair was a crown of authority. Even Solomon, the wisest man said, The hoary [gray] head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness (Proverbs 16:31 KJV). The grayer the head, the wiser the man. Although, I must confess I have seen my share of dumb grayheaded men. A woman, however, has an altogether different philosophy when it comes to time. As a man with gray hair, I do not fully understand their philosophy. I suppose there are some men who would like to be 25 again. Most men, however, are happy to be as old as they are. Women are different. They live upon the concept of ageless beauty. Who am I, as a man, to counter that philosophy? I discovered this many years ago. A woman casually asked me how old I thought she was. I have long since discovered that this is no casual question and she is not looking for exact information. I, at the time, took it as a challenge and tried to guess her age. Wrong! I have since learned that the correct response to this question is, Why, you dont look a day over 25. I do not know exactly what that means, but I have often gotten smiles from this response. No matter how old the woman is, in her mind she is still 25. The man has a different idea. Im 60, he will boast to whoever will listen, and I can still do a whole days work. Then he will go out and throw his back out just to prove it. Time has a different effect upon a man as it does upon a woman. There is nothing wrong with trying to look younger. I suppose it is an easier task to do if you are a woman than if you are a man. Every morning before I leave the house I try to make myself as non-scary to the public as I possibly can. I will scrape my face, pat down my hair, and douse myself with aftershave and in 10 minutes I am done and ready for the world. I have noticed that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage takes a lot longer than 10 minutes to get ready to face the world. I must admit she does a very good job of it, but I also must admit it takes a long time and it seems each year it gets longer. I do not want to call attention to myself. I just want to get through the day and back home again. I know I am not as young as I used to be but I take consolation in the fact that I am older than I used to be. And hand in hand with good old Father Time, I have walked down the wonderful timeline. For me personally, I like to celebrate each birthday as a once-in-a-lifetime celebration. My goal in life is to get as old as I possibly can and with the good help of Father Time, I am well on my way. Time has not stood still for me, for which I am most thankful. Just like getting to the airport on time for my flight, I want to be on time for everything happening in my life. I do not want to miss a thing. Too often people look backward, stumble over today, find themselves in tomorrow and do not know how they got there. I want to enjoy the time I have in real time. There is no time like the present to enjoy. Memories are wonderful. Aspirations are delightful. But, nothing can take the place of right now. The Bible has a lot to say about time. We are in a timeline established by God and it will not slow down into we come to the end. The apostle Paul understood this when he wrote, And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed (Romans 13:11 KJV). There is no time like the present that as someone said, This is the first day of the rest of my life. I am going to celebrate my Now with all the energy I have. Rev. James L.

Friday, November 2, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, November 2, 2012 www.smcitizen.com O n a recent vacation to Hendersonville, North Carolina, I happened to wander inside a gift shop on Main Street. Always my favorite activity, I love to browse and shmooze around gift shops just to discover new and different items to bring back home. On this particular trip, I came across a rather interesting article in the jewelry section of the store. Staring right at me in gleaming silver, was a hamsa, a Jewish good luck charm and in all places to find one! A hamsa is a popular talisman that probably originated in the Middle East and is worn by Jewish and Muslim followers as a protection against the Evil Eye. The charm looks like an outstretched hand with three fingers pointing upward with the pinky and thumb lying in a straight line across from each other in the same size. The palm of the hand frequently has an eye design in the middle and the word mazel or luck is often inscribed as well. The talisman can be worked in any material but silver or gold are common materials. The eye part of the charm can have a real or simulated jewel. The charm can be put on a keychain or necklace or made into any number of objects such as jewelry or small gift items as scarves or bookmarks or decorative items for the home. The symbolism attached to the hamsa is open to interpretation. The word hamsa comes from the Hebrew word, hamesh which means five. In this case, it refers to the Five Books of Moses or the Torah. (It could just as well refer to the five fingers of the hand, which could stand for the hand of God.) It is sometimes called the hand of Miriam, after Moses sister. The eye part of the talisman, is supposed to offer protection from the Evil Eye. This old superstition has to do with people who cast a malevolent glance at others and cause them evil especially in the midst of celebration of good fortune. To this day, Jews will add the phrase kenenhora that the Evil Eye that unintentionally may be cast is in no way to be intended for evil or misfortune. Its another way of not jinxing something that is about to happen. It was also believed that some people had a predisposition towards being able to cast an evil eye but the rabbis frowned on this idea. In Islam, the number five stands for the five pillars of the faith and the hand becomes the hand of Fatima, one of Mohammeds daughters. The charm predates both religions but both Jews and Muslims often share Middle Eastern culture. Jews living in Arab lands often adopted the customs of the countries they lived in and the hamsa was popular in Yemen where it was brought to Israel and later to the U.S. The great Jewish philosopher, Maimonides, considered the hamsa and other superstitions to be against Jewish theology which holds that God is in charge of the universe and that it is futile for humans to go against the will of God by using supernatural means. Even so, talismans and charms were popular in folk culture. While I dont ascribe any significance to my hamsa, it is fun to wear even if I dont believe that it offers any protection against evil. Still it doesnt hurt to have a little extra luck these days and a whole handful is even better!

A smorgasbord of characters course through the novel: a social-climbing sex-addiction psychiatrist, his young Cuban-American nurse, a Russian art forger, a light-skinned, color-conscious Haitian professor, an ambitious WASP Miami Herald reporter, and the protagonistOfficer Nestor Camacho. In the opening pages of the book Editor-in-Chief of the Miami Herald Edward Topping 1V and his Anglo wife Mac have just arrived at a black tie event when in the parking lot a chic, young Cuban woman in her Ferrari 403 shoots into the very spot Mac was aiming for. Fireworks explode. As Mac berates the beautiful young woman for her rudeness, the young woman spouts a stream of invective entirely in Spanish. Mac screams, Speak English, you pathetic idiot. Youre in America now. Speak English. To which the young Cuban snorts. We een Mee-ah-mee now! You een Mee-ah-mee now! About this hopeless clash of cultures a character will later say, If you really want to understand Miami you got to realize one thing first of all. In Miami everybody hates everybody. The plot revolves around Nestors first exploit. As a member of the Marine Patrol hes ordered to bring down a young illegal Cuban immigrant clinging to the mast of a ship. Nestor obliges, scaling a A chaotic new novel penned by Tom Wolfe B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington rope, muscles bulging, his perfect physique visible to all those gaping from the Rickenbacker Causeway. In following orders, though, he cheats the immigrant of a foot on dry land that would have bought him freedom. Though his fellow officers praise him, his family and Hialeah neighbors vilify him, calling him a traitor. Nestor, however, will eventually cover himself in glory. This is far from a restful read. In fact, the frantic pace, the shrieking all caps, and bizarre happenings are exhausting. Wolfe has written brilliant novels he can be proud of. This is not one of them.

Max Loffgren chose to pay tribute to those Americans who are still in Vietnam. His 1955 Chevy dragster is adorned with the names of 3,578 POW/MIA. Loffgren served in the Americal Division in Vietnam from 1969-1970. He is a retired firefighter in Napa, California who has taken to the racing circuit. "The car speaks for itself...people understand it." His goal is to use the car more to educate than to race. "This is for those guys and their families." Loffgren also assists veterans with referrals for veteran benefits and has memorabilia of POW.MIA items for sale. Artists, Aiyana, Anita Anderson, Ronald K Aselton, Julius Chirieleison, Gail DeCorsica, Don Good, Joseph G. Hare, Dustin B. Huff, Kyle Johnson, Barbara Jones, Diana Lee Harris, Linda Lee Krebs, and Terry Riley utilize the wall space in the eatery as a galley for their art that includes an artistic salute to veterans. There is no cost for the event. Donna Cuppels and her husband, Earl, owners of Eggs Over Easy, offer a 10 percent discount on total bill honored for all veterans. Salute Belgium waffles will be featured all day. Eggs Over Easy is at 5855 S.E. Fifth St. at Baseline Road, Ocala. Hours: 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. every day, until 4 p.m. on Nov. 5 only. At 18 years of age, Bill enlisted in the National Guard. He served six years working with explosives; communications; artillery and finally as a medic. Also during this time one of the most important events of his life took place. A friend of Lorraines father was visiting their home when he looked down at his watch and said, Ive got to go pick up Bill from the Armory. Lorraine, do you want to come along for the ride? She said, Sure, why not, and that meeting changed Bill and Lorraines life forever. Two months after meeting and their first date, they were married. At this time, Bill was an apprentice carpenter and was making up for lost time in his youth. He obtained his G.E.D. and would graduate from Quinsigamen Community College with a degree in engineering. He has spent his entire life continuing his education studying everything from music to Locksmith. Bill and Lorraine have three children. David lives in New York and a daughter, Robin lives in Massachusetts. Their youngest, Shawn, lives in Ocala and is the principal reason for their moving to this area. Well, there was the snow and ice of the North that had something to do with their decision also. In addition to the three children they had of their own, tragically Lorraines sister passed away leaving three children behind. Opening their hearts and their home, Lorraine and Bill took in their sisters young ones and gave them all the security and love of a family. When asked how he managed to support so many while Lorraine was a full time mom to six, Bill smiled softly and said, Working three jobs at a time. Neither Lorraine nor Bill is a stranger to hard work. When the children got older, Lorraine went to work outside the home. She started off making computer boards for the Sylvania/Honeywell Corporation and when she was done, she had worked her way up to supervisor of the department. During this time, Bill built their home in Berlin, Massachusetts so there would be enough room for everyone. Always seeking to learn new skills, Bill worked as a technical supervisor for Aerotech Corporation, a subdivision of ADT Alarms. He was in charge of quality control for all ultrasonic; microwave and infrared systems. Later in his career Bill would start his own printing business and ran that for several years. After that, he went into the mini invasive surgical equipment field with Vista Medical Technologies in Westboro. After moving to Florida, Bill, not one to sit still, took on the duties of a correctional assistant with the Marion County Sheriffs Office. Serving in the Jail division he worked his way up to being clerk of the law library. He just laughs when he speaks of his experiences in that job. For less than a year, Lorraine and Bill have been living in Cherrywood. They are very active taking part in such activities as the bowling league; Visitation Committee; Song Birds; Bocce Ball and Trivia Nights. Both are members of the Veterans Club and Lorraine enjoys playing dominoes. They thoroughly enjoy their children; 10 grandchildren and 4 great grand children. Married for just over fifty years, Bill and Lorraine both credit their religious beliefs for being able to overcome the many trials and hardships of life. They rejoice in their faith in Jesus and credit him with all they have been able to accomplish. Both Lorraine and Bill are very private individuals and were reluctant to share their triumphs and difficulties with your humble correspondent. They did allow me the warm hospitality of their home however and with some urging, shared their life experiences with me. We are fortunate indeed to have them as part of our Cherrywood community and they have made great contributions to our activities and life style. If you have not met them, I invite you to join Bill and Lorraine for our Karaoke Night on Nov. 9 when Bill will be our DJ or on Veterans Day celebration when he will be our sound technician. You will enjoy getting to know this unique, caring and sharing couple. They are two more reasons why Cherrywood is a great place to live. From Your ReporterNext week in the Spotlight on Excellence look forward to a special article on Veterans Day by guest correspondent Fred OHern. Fred is a retired Chief Master Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force and past president of the Veterans Club. I would like to apologize to Colonel Tom Currie; our upcoming Guest Speaker for the Veterans Day Observance. In last weeks paper I listed him as Lieutenant Colonel. This was an error on my part.

T he day of reckoning is approaching. The battles are nearing an end as the two combatants make their final appeals right up to Tuesday, Nov. 6. Now, take some time to relax. Lean back on your rocking chair or recliner and enjoy some political humor regardless of your inclination. DebatableBefore the first presidential debate there was a coin toss to see which candidate would speak first. There was an awkward moment just before the coin toss when Romney asked, Whats that shiny little disk youre holding? Watching the debates is a lot like football, particularly the New York Jets. Tebow is like Romney, almost surely disappointing if he gets in. And Obamas like Sanchez, already in there and disappointing us right now. The first debate lasted 90 minutes. Afterward, President Obama got back to his hotel room at precisely 9:45 p.m. He knew it because Mitt Romney had just cleaned his clock. For many Americans, a presidential debate is like a NASCAR race; they only tune in to see the potential wrecks Private sources say that President Obama blamed George W. Bush for the first debate. Congratulations to Mitt Romney and President Obama. They both won Emmys for their debate performances. Obama won for acting as if everything has gotten better over the last four years, and Romney won for pretending to care about that other 47 percent. Election comments New polling shows President Obama has a 10-point lead in Mitt Romneys home state of Michigan. Although in Obamas home state of Hawaii, Romney has a 10-house lead. Paul Ryan now says that President Obamas foreign policy has blown up in his face and its time to go back to the Republican foreign policy. Well, lets see, Obama kept Guantanamo Bay open, the troops are still overseas, and the Middle East hates us. Isnt that the Republican foreign policy? If Bain Capital were running Romneys campaign, theyd fire everybody, close it down and hire some Chinese guy to do it cheaper and better. I keep seeing ads asking me to Join Michelle, and tell Barack youre in! OK, Im in all right bankruptcy, unemployment, and despair. A new survey found that over 35 percent of Americans actually plan on voting before Election Day. Not for president of the United States, just for Dancing With the Stars. Mitt Romneys California garbage man criticizes Romneys 47 percent comments in a new video. The Romney campaign dismissed the video as just trash talking. At a recent concert, Madonna told the audience she would strip naked if President Obama is reelected. In a related story, President Obama is now trailing in the polls by 97 percent. A poll says that 39 percent of Americans say the government should do more to solve the nations problems. The other 61 percent say it would be better if they did less to cause any more problems. Quips To understand politics, we must read between the lies. The more you observe politics, the more youve got to admit that each party is worse than the other. Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated. No one party can fool all of the people all of the time; thats why we have two parties. Still the same Back in the early days of TV a farmer decided to buy a television. The store assured him that they would install the antenna and TV the next day. When the farmer turned on his TV he found only political ads on every channel. The next morning he turned the TV on and found only political ads again. When he came in to eat lunch he tried the TV again, but still only found political ads. The next day when he still found only political ads he called the store to complain. The owner said that it was impossible for every channel to only have political ads, but agreed to send their repairman to check the TV. When the TV repairman turned on the TV he found that the farmer was right. After looking at the TV for a while he went outside to check the antenna. In a few minutes he returned and told the farmer he had found the problem. The antenna had been installed on top of the windmill and grounded to the manure spreader. Friday, November 2, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, November 2, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds The day of reckoning is approaching P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank Karaoke Night A night of fun entertainment is scheduled on Nov. 9 from 7 until 10 p.m. in the clubhouse. Bill Lavertue is going to crank up his extensive collection of music for all of the singers here at Cherrywood. Bring your own refreshments, liquid and otherwise; bring your friends and bring your list of favorite tunes then head on down to the clubhouse for a special night. Bill has more than 20,000 songs in his collection so you are sure to find one or two (dozen) that you like. You can sit back and enjoy the entertainment of your neighbors or you can jump in and take part. Maybe there are two or three friends that would like to join you in singing a favorite song or maybe you do your best being a soloist. No problem; Bill will accommodate every request. This promises to be one extremely fun time for participants and observers alike. You might be discovered; you might discover that your neighbor has more talent than you ever thought or you might just get a good laugh. No matter, its all in good fun and its all free. Come out for this unique entertainment experience and encourage your friends and neighbors. Camera Club On Friday, Nov. 2 at 10 a.m., the Shutterbugs Camera Club is holding a contest. Come out and bring your favorite picture that you have ever taken. The club members will judge all the photos and award a prize to the best one in their opinion. The only rule for the contest is that the photo has to have been taken by you personally and can be of any subject. The only qualification for membership is that you have an interest in photography. Well see you on Friday morning in the library of the clubhouse for an interesting and educational time. Raffle ticketsDont forget to buy your raffle tickets. Two gift baskets and a Welcome floral display are being raffled off by our Veterans Club on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. Tickets are only a dollar and will be available that day. Youll love these items so be sure to get your ticket. Election Day changesElection Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6. Our clubhouse is a polling place so for that reason all activities scheduled for the main area of the clubhouse have been cancelled. Pool, cards and the like that take place in the smaller rooms are still on. Due to the conflict of dates, the swimming pool will be closed on Nov. 7 instead of the 6th and Movie Night will be on Nov. 7 instead of the first Tuesday of the month.

Because we no longer have a full time volunteer, Cherrywood blood donations are down from their usual amount so please be there and donate on Friday the 9th. Tree TrimmingEvery year the residents of Cherrywood get together for a Christmas Tree Trimming party at the clubhouse. On an ornament, they put their name and the year they moved into Cherrywood and each year, these are placed on our Christmas tree. This year, the party is on Dec. 2 and starts at 6 p.m. Everyone brings a dish to pass around and with the music and fellowship, the Christmas spirit throughout the neighborhood. Mark your calendars and plan to be there for this special day.Cribbage players wantedIf you play cribbage or have ever wanted to learn how to play cribbage, we have a place for you. Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. in the card room our Cribbage Club gets together for their weekly games. If you are an accomplished player or if you just want to learn, this is the place for you. Strong competition or patient teaching and everything in between are part of this clubs program. Dont be shy; come out and join in with this fun group. Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature residents of Cherrywood who have an interesting past; a promising future or who have made a significant contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week we highlight two relative newcomers to our neighborhood, Lorraine and Bill Lavertue. Born in Stoneham, Massachusetts, Lorraine was the youngest of six children. Her father was an evangelist so they traveled all over the country. Throughout her childhood she spent time in many different states and cities finally settling when her dad was posted at a Church in Waltham, Massachusetts. Bill was born and raised in Lawrence, Massachusetts. He was the older of two sons raised by his single mother. While his mom worked at a local mission, Bill began working at the age of 7 to help support the family. His first job was working for a man named Sam Woo Chong who owned an import produce business. The town was relatively small, less than six square miles, and Bill would deliver the produce to various restaurants and markets in the area. For six years he did that work helping his family make ends meet. At the ripe old age of 13 he began working for Lee Wee Long who owned a laundry and dry cleaning business. Bill operated five pressing machines at a time making 65 cents an hour. He did all of this until the age of 15 when the state stepped in and enforced the child labor laws. After receiving his working papers, Bill got a job working in a shoe repair shop. He started at $48 a week and worked his way up to $120 a week, learning every facet of the cobbler trade. School was not really an option for Bill during his youth. Working and putting food on the table and covering the living expenses for his family were much more pressing necessities than learning about life from a book. With only an eighth grade education he was denied a promotion in the shoe shop because he had no high school diploma.

The Cherrywood Veterans Club will honor all veterans at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 with a service in front of the clubhouse. We welcome everyone from not only our community but the greater Southwest Marion County area as we pause to honor the service and sacrifice of those who serve our nation. Our guest speaker will be Colonel Tom P Currie Junior (Ret). Colonel Currie is a graduate of the USAF Academy and began his career as a combat rescue pilot. Later he went on to being a test pilot and eventually became Commander of the 46th Test Group stationed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico. The 46th led the way in cutting edge technologies and development was liaison for the entire Air Force testing and training programs. We are honored to have him as our guest speaker. Our ceremony will include our Honor Guard presenting the Colors; a Salute to the Armed Forces; recognition of survivors and Taps. Please make every effort to attend this special service. Immediately following the service, the Veterans Club will host a picnic with old fashioned hamburgers and hot dogs and trimmings.

Trivia Contest nightOn Nov. 21, Trivia Night will be back in full swing at Cherrywood.

Each three or four person team will be scratching their heads; tapping their feet; slapping their foreheads and laughing their socks off when at the end of the contest the answers are finally revealed. The lucky winning teams will get bragging rights for a month and maybe even a couple of bucks in their pockets. Win or lose, everyone will have a good time, thats for sure. Trivia only costs a dollar per person to play and the proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Fund. If youve never been, you have to come out and try it. Even if you dont have a team of three or four, come on down to the clubhouse and youll be assigned a group to play with. As always, beverages and snacks of your choice are welcome. Dont miss this great night of fun and laughter; mental challenge and camaraderie. Oh, the subject for November? Thanksgiving of course. Note: Next month we have a guest quizmaster.

Veterans Day ObservanceSunday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. the nation will pause to remember those who have served in our Armed Forces. Originally it marked the end of the First World War and was called Armistice Day. In 1954, following World War II and Korea, at the urging of veterans organizations, the name of the day was changed from Armistice to Veterans. The Cherrywood Veterans Club will honor all veterans at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 with a service in front of the clubhouse. We welcome everyone from not only our community but the greater Southwest Marion County area as we pause to honor the service and sacrifice of those who serve our nation. Our guest speaker will be Colonel Tom P Currie Junior (Ret). Colonel Currie is a graduate of the USAF Academy and began his career as a combat rescue pilot. Later he went on to being a test pilot and eventually became Commander of the 46th Test Group stationed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico. The 46th led the way in cutting edge technologies and development was liaison for the entire Air Force testing and training programs. We are honored to have him as our guest speaker. Our ceremony will include our Honor Guard presenting the Colors; a Salute to the Armed Forces; recognition of survivors and Taps. Please make every effort to attend this special service. Immediately following the service, the Veterans Club will host a picnic with old fashioned hamburgers and hot dogs and trimmings. Tickets for the picnic are mandatory and cost $7 each so be sure to see Geri and get your tickets in advance of Veterans Day. We dont want anyone left out of this observance and celebration. Trivia Contest nightOn Nov. 21, Trivia Night will be back in full swing at Cherrywood. At 6 p.m., Fred and Jay OHern will light up the big screen with questions for our eager teams to answer; glasses will clink; snacks will be munched and the excitement will build. Each three or four person team will be scratching their heads; tapping their feet; slapping their foreheads and laughing their socks off when at the end of the contest the answers are finally revealed. The lucky winning teams will get bragging rights for a month and maybe even a couple of bucks in their pockets. Win or lose, everyone will have a good time, thats for sure. Trivia only costs a dollar per person to play and the proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Fund. If youve never been, you have to come out and try it. Even if you dont have a team of three or four, come on down to the clubhouse and youll be assigned a group to play with. As always, beverages and snacks of your choice are welcome. Dont miss this great night of fun and laughter; mental challenge and camaraderie. Oh, the subject for November? Thanksgiving of course. Note: Next month we have a guest quizmaster.

T he day of reckoning is approaching. The battles are nearing an end as the two combatants make their final appeals right up to Tuesday, Nov. 6. Now, take some time to relax. Lean back on your rocking chair or recliner and enjoy some political humor regardless of your inclination. DebatableBefore the first presidential debate there was a coin toss to see which candidate would speak first. There was an awkward moment just before the coin toss when Romney asked, Whats that shiny little disk youre holding? Watching the debates is a lot like football, particularly the New York Jets. Tebow is like Romney, almost surely disappointing if he gets in. And Obamas like Sanchez, already in there and disappointing us right now. The first debate lasted 90 minutes. Afterward, President Obama got back to his hotel room at precisely 9:45 p.m. He knew it because Mitt Romney had just cleaned his clock. For many Americans, a presidential debate is like a NASCAR race; they only tune in to see the potential wrecks Private sources say that President Obama blamed George W. Bush for the first debate. Congratulations to Mitt Romney and President Obama. They both won Emmys for their debate performances. Obama won for acting as if everything has gotten better over the last four years, and Romney won for pretending to care about that other 47 percent. Election comments New polling shows President Obama has a 10-point lead in Mitt Romneys home state of Michigan. Although in Obamas home state of Hawaii, Romney has a 10-house lead. Paul Ryan now says that President Obamas foreign policy has blown up in his face and its time to go back to the Republican foreign policy. Well, lets see, Obama kept Guantanamo Bay open, the troops are still overseas, and the Middle East hates us. Isnt that the Republican foreign policy? If Bain Capital were running Romneys campaign, theyd fire everybody, close it down and hire some Chinese guy to do it cheaper and better. I keep seeing ads asking me to Join Michelle, and tell Barack youre in! OK, Im in all right bankruptcy, unemployment, and despair. A new survey found that over 35 percent of Americans actually plan on voting before Election Day. Not for president of the United States, just for Dancing With the Stars. Mitt Romneys California garbage man criticizes Romneys 47 percent comments in a new video. The Romney campaign dismissed the video as just trash talking. At a recent concert, Madonna told the audience she would strip naked if President Obama is reelected. In a related story, President Obama is now trailing in the polls by 97 percent. A poll says that 39 percent of Americans say the government should do more to solve the nations problems. The other 61 percent say it would be better if they did less to cause any more problems. Quips To understand politics, we must read between the lies. The more you observe politics, the more youve got to admit that each party is worse than the other. Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated. No one party can fool all of the people all of the time; thats why we have two parties. Still the same Back in the early days of TV a farmer decided to buy a television. The store assured him that they would install the antenna and TV the next day. When the farmer turned on his TV he found only political ads on every channel. The next morning he turned the TV on and found only political ads again. When he came in to eat lunch he tried the TV again, but still only found political ads. The next day when he still found only political ads he called the store to complain. The owner said that it was impossible for every channel to only have political ads, but agreed to send their repairman to check the TV. When the TV repairman turned on the TV he found that the farmer was right. After looking at the TV for a while he went outside to check the antenna. In a few minutes he returned and told the farmer he had found the problem. The antenna had been installed on top of the windmill and grounded to the manure spreader.

Well see you on Friday morning in the library of the clubhouse for an interesting and educational time. Raffle ticketsDont forget to buy your raffle tickets.

Youll love these items so be sure to get your ticket. Election Day changesElection Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6. Our clubhouse is a polling place so for that reason all activities scheduled for the main area of the clubhouse have been cancelled. Pool, cards and the like that take place in the smaller rooms are still on. Due to the conflict of dates, the swimming pool will be closed on Nov. 7 instead of the 6th and Movie Night will be on Nov. 7 instead of the first Tuesday of the month. Everyone is encouraged to get out and vote on Tuesday, Nov. 6.Blood Drive Donors are badly needed for our Blood Drive coming up on Nov. 9 from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. Health care professionals will get you in and out of the Big Red Bus quickly and easily so it wont take you much time at all to give the gift of life. Because we no longer have a full time volunteer, Cherrywood blood donations are down from their usual amount so please be there and donate on Friday the 9th. Tree TrimmingEvery year the residents of Cherrywood get together for a Christmas Tree Trimming party at the clubhouse. On an ornament, they put their name and the year they moved into Cherrywood and each year, these are placed on our Christmas tree. This year, the party is on Dec. 2 and starts at 6 p.m. Everyone brings a dish to pass around and with the music and fellowship, the Christmas spirit throughout the neighborhood. Mark your calendars and plan to be there for this special day.Cribbage players wantedIf you play cribbage or have ever wanted to learn how to play cribbage, we have a place for you. Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. in the card room our Cribbage Club gets together for their weekly games. If you are an accomplished player or if you just want to learn, this is the place for you. Strong competition or patient teaching and everything in between are part of this clubs program. Dont be shy; come out and join in with this fun group. Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature residents of Cherrywood who have an interesting past; a promising future or who have made a significant contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week we highlight two relative newcomers to our neighborhood, Lorraine and Bill Lavertue. Born in Stoneham, Massachusetts, Lorraine was the youngest of six children. Her father was an evangelist so they traveled all over the country. Throughout her childhood she spent time in many different states and cities finally settling when her dad was posted at a Church in Waltham, Massachusetts. Bill was born and raised in Lawrence, Massachusetts. He was the older of two sons raised by his single mother. While his mom worked at a local mission, Bill began working at the age of 7 to help support the family. His first job was working for a man named Sam Woo Chong who owned an import produce business. The town was relatively small, less than six square miles, and Bill would deliver the produce to various restaurants and markets in the area. For six years he did that work helping his family make ends meet. At the ripe old age of 13 he began working for Lee Wee Long who owned a laundry and dry cleaning business. Bill operated five pressing machines at a time making 65 cents an hour. He did all of this until the age of 15 when the state stepped in and enforced the child labor laws. After receiving his working papers, Bill got a job working in a shoe repair shop. He started at $48 a week and worked his way up to $120 a week, learning every facet of the cobbler trade. School was not really an option for Bill during his youth. Working and putting food on the table and covering the living expenses for his family were much more pressing necessities than learning about life from a book. With only an eighth grade education he was denied a promotion in the shoe shop because he had no high school diploma.

Max Loffgren chose to pay tribute to those Americans who are still in Vietnam. His 1955 Chevy dragster is adorned with the names of 3,578 POW/MIA. Loffgren served in the Americal Division in Vietnam from 1969-1970. He is a retired firefighter in Napa, California who has taken to the racing circuit. "The car speaks for itself...people understand it." His goal is to use the car more to educate than to race. "This is for those guys and their families." Loffgren also assists veterans with referrals for veteran benefits and has memorabilia of POW.MIA items for sale. Artists, Aiyana, Anita Anderson, Ronald K Aselton, Julius Chirieleison, Gail DeCorsica, Don Good, Joseph G. Hare, Dustin B. Huff, Kyle Johnson, Barbara Jones, Diana Lee Harris, Linda Lee Krebs, and Terry Riley utilize the wall space in the eatery as a galley for their art that includes an artistic salute to veterans. There is no cost for the event. Donna Cuppels and her husband, Earl, owners of Eggs Over Easy, offer a 10 percent discount on total bill honored for all veterans. Salute Belgium waffles will be featured all day. Eggs Over Easy is at 5855 S.E. Fifth St. at Baseline Road, Ocala. Hours: 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. every day, until 4 p.m. on Nov. 5 only. At 18 years of age, Bill enlisted in the National Guard. He served six years working with explosives; communications; artillery and finally as a medic. Also during this time one of the most important events of his life took place. A friend of Lorraines father was visiting their home when he looked down at his watch and said, Ive got to go pick up Bill from the Armory. Lorraine, do you want to come along for the ride? She said, Sure, why not, and that meeting changed Bill and Lorraines life forever. Two months after meeting and their first date, they were married. At this time, Bill was an apprentice carpenter and was making up for lost time in his youth. He obtained his G.E.D. and would graduate from Quinsigamen Community College with a degree in engineering. He has spent his entire life continuing his education studying everything from music to Locksmith. Bill and Lorraine have three children. David lives in New York and a daughter, Robin lives in Massachusetts. Their youngest, Shawn, lives in Ocala and is the principal reason for their moving to this area. Well, there was the snow and ice of the North that had something to do with their decision also. In addition to the three children they had of their own, tragically Lorraines sister passed away leaving three children behind. Opening their hearts and their home, Lorraine and Bill took in their sisters young ones and gave them all the security and love of a family. When asked how he managed to support so many while Lorraine was a full time mom to six, Bill smiled softly and said, Working three jobs at a time. Neither Lorraine nor Bill is a stranger to hard work. When the children got older, Lorraine went to work outside the home. She started off making computer boards for the Sylvania/Honeywell Corporation and when she was done, she had worked her way up to supervisor of the department. During this time, Bill built their home in Berlin, Massachusetts so there would be enough room for everyone. Always seeking to learn new skills, Bill worked as a technical supervisor for Aerotech Corporation, a subdivision of ADT Alarms. He was in charge of quality control for all ultrasonic; microwave and infrared systems. Later in his career Bill would start his own printing business and ran that for several years. After that, he went into the mini invasive surgical equipment field with Vista Medical Technologies in Westboro. After moving to Florida, Bill, not one to sit still, took on the duties of a correctional assistant with the Marion County Sheriffs Office. Serving in the Jail division he worked his way up to being clerk of the law library. He just laughs when he speaks of his experiences in that job. For less than a year, Lorraine and Bill have been living in Cherrywood. They are very active taking part in such activities as the bowling league; Visitation Committee; Song Birds; Bocce Ball and Trivia Nights. Both are members of the Veterans Club and Lorraine enjoys playing dominoes. They thoroughly enjoy their children; 10 grandchildren and 4 great grand children. Married for just over fifty years, Bill and Lorraine both credit their religious beliefs for being able to overcome the many trials and hardships of life. They rejoice in their faith in Jesus and credit him with all they have been able to accomplish. Both Lorraine and Bill are very private individuals and were reluctant to share their triumphs and difficulties with your humble correspondent. They did allow me the warm hospitality of their home however and with some urging, shared their life experiences with me. We are fortunate indeed to have them as part of our Cherrywood community and they have made great contributions to our activities and life style. If you have not met them, I invite you to join Bill and Lorraine for our Karaoke Night on Nov. 9 when Bill will be our DJ or on Veterans Day celebration when he will be our sound technician. You will enjoy getting to know this unique, caring and sharing couple. They are two more reasons why Cherrywood is a great place to live. From Your ReporterNext week in the Spotlight on Excellence look forward to a special article on Veterans Day by guest correspondent Fred OHern. Fred is a retired Chief Master Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force and past president of the Veterans Club. I would like to apologize to Colonel Tom Currie; our upcoming Guest Speaker for the Veterans Day Observance. In last weeks paper I listed him as Lieutenant Colonel. This was an error on my part.

Friday, November 2, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, November 2, 2012 www.smcitizen.com O n a recent vacation to Hendersonville, North Carolina, I happened to wander inside a gift shop on Main Street. Always my favorite activity, I love to browse and shmooze around gift shops just to discover new and different items to bring back home. On this particular trip, I came across a rather interesting article in the jewelry section of the store. Staring right at me in gleaming silver, was a hamsa, a Jewish good luck charm and in all places to find one! A hamsa is a popular talisman that probably originated in the Middle East and is worn by Jewish and Muslim followers as a protection against the Evil Eye. The charm looks like an outstretched hand with three fingers pointing upward with the pinky and thumb lying in a straight line across from each other in the same size. The palm of the hand frequently has an eye design in the middle and the word mazel or luck is often inscribed as well. The talisman can be worked in any material but silver or gold are common materials. The eye part of the charm can have a real or simulated jewel. The charm can be put on a keychain or necklace or made into any number of objects such as jewelry or small gift items as scarves or bookmarks or decorative items for the home. The symbolism attached to the hamsa is open to interpretation. The word hamsa comes from the Hebrew word, hamesh which means five. In this case, it refers to the Five Books of Moses or the Torah. (It could just as well refer to the five fingers of the hand, which could stand for the hand of God.) It is sometimes called the hand of Miriam, after Moses sister. The eye part of the talisman, is supposed to offer protection from the Evil Eye. This old superstition has to do with people who cast a malevolent glance at others and cause them evil especially in the midst of celebration of good fortune. To this day, Jews will add the phrase kenenhora that the Evil Eye that unintentionally may be cast is in no way to be intended for evil or misfortune. Its another way of not jinxing something that is about to happen. It was also believed that some people had a predisposition towards being able to cast an evil eye but the rabbis frowned on this idea. In Islam, the number five stands for the five pillars of the faith and the hand becomes the hand of Fatima, one of Mohammeds daughters. The charm predates both religions but both Jews and Muslims often share Middle Eastern culture. Jews living in Arab lands often adopted the customs of the countries they lived in and the hamsa was popular in Yemen where it was brought to Israel and later to the U.S. The great Jewish philosopher, Maimonides, considered the hamsa and other superstitions to be against Jewish theology which holds that God is in charge of the universe and that it is futile for humans to go against the will of God by using supernatural means. Even so, talismans and charms were popular in folk culture. While I dont ascribe any significance to my hamsa, it is fun to wear even if I dont believe that it offers any protection against evil. Still it doesnt hurt to have a little extra luck these days and a whole handful is even better!

You see, in Back to Blood the author attempts to define the South Florida metropolis as he defined New York in The Bonfire of the Vanities. But in place of the latters secrets and lies we have excess, excess, excess. A smorgasbord of characters course through the novel: a social-climbing sex-addiction psychiatrist, his young Cuban-American nurse, a Russian art forger, a light-skinned, color-conscious Haitian professor, an ambitious WASP Miami Herald reporter, and the protagonistOfficer Nestor Camacho. In the opening pages of the book Editor-in-Chief of the Miami Herald Edward Topping 1V and his Anglo wife Mac have just arrived at a black tie event when in the parking lot a chic, young Cuban woman in her Ferrari 403 shoots into the very spot Mac was aiming for. Fireworks explode. As Mac berates the beautiful young woman for her rudeness, the young woman spouts a stream of invective entirely in Spanish. Mac screams, Speak English, you pathetic idiot. Youre in America now. Speak English. To which the young Cuban snorts. We een Mee-ah-mee now! You een Mee-ah-mee now! About this hopeless clash of cultures a character will later say, If you really want to understand Miami you got to realize one thing first of all. In Miami everybody hates everybody. The plot revolves around Nestors first exploit. As a member of the Marine Patrol hes ordered to bring down a young illegal Cuban immigrant clinging to the mast of a ship. Nestor obliges, scaling a A chaotic new novel penned by Tom Wolfe B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington rope, muscles bulging, his perfect physique visible to all those gaping from the Rickenbacker Causeway. In following orders, though, he cheats the immigrant of a foot on dry land that would have bought him freedom. Though his fellow officers praise him, his family and Hialeah neighbors vilify him, calling him a traitor. Nestor, however, will eventually cover himself in glory. This is far from a restful read. In fact, the frantic pace, the shrieking all caps, and bizarre happenings are exhausting. Wolfe has written brilliant novels he can be proud of. This is not one of them.

BY ENID B. JONES Special to the Citizen The next meeting of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club will be Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. at Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. In keeping with the excitement of the approaching election, our September meeting focused on the voting process and the November ballot in Florida. The topics for the discussion at this meeting were the amendments that will be on the ballot in November and restoring civil rights at a time when voter rights are being challenged in Florida. Our guest speakers, Mr. and Mrs. Whitfield Jenkins, were uniquely qualified to talk about these areas because of their long life of service to community. Mrs. Loretta Pompey Jenkins is serving her second term as the non-partisan president of the local branch of Marion County NAACP She has served 30 years as a member of this organization. At the same time she held the position of elementary school principal in the Marion County School System and is now retired after a 33-year tenure. Her words reflected her experience in Florida as she talked about the audacity of the state government in its attempt to take away or suppress the right of the individual to vote. The right to vote is particularly sensitive to African Americans and very centralized in their world because of their struggles to obtain such a right. Another area of significance is the restoration of right of felons to vote. House Bill 1355 under the current Florida state government has made the restoration process more difficult. Yet, this right can be obtained by following the process which includes paying off all outstanding fines incurred and meeting conditions that are laid out. In other words try to restore your right it is too important to ignore. She mentioned that despite the fact that African Americans in New York and five other states owned property before emancipation and therefore could vote, no such right existed in the southern states. Since emancipation, the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendment of the U.S. constitution each played a role in ensuring this right to exslaves and their descendants. Again, the 1965 the Voting Right Act helped African Americans who were burdened by state laws, obtain the right to vote. It is therefore particularly difficult to see that in 2011 the state of Florida passed laws to suppress the right to vote for seniors, minority populations and our youth especially since these groups voted in record numbers in 2008. There has also been no major finding of voter fraud in Florida which was the reason given for setting up these barriers. Mrs. Jenkins stated that the NAACP and other organizations have come together to knock down barriers in states that are bent on suppression of votes by mobilizing teams to carry out specific actions that will enhance the ability of eligible voters to vote. Voters should do the following: Register to vote using the correct required process; take advantage of early voting (the ballot is lengthy and will take time so vote before Nov. 6); use the Souls to the Polls transportation strategy in churches; educate each other as about the items on the ballot so we are all educated voters; check out precinct changes with Supervisor of Elections Office which is very user friendly; use mail-in ballots and avoid the long wait (make sure to mail ballot early); be sure to sign and date ballot; vote the entire ballot including local and state issues; spread the word to all to go and vote; and be aware of important dates: Early voting begins Oct. 27 at specific precincts, last request for mail-in ballot Oct. 31, early voting ends Nov. 3, and Election Day Nov. 6. Mr. Whitfield Jenkins is currently Field Services Representative American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees. In his work tenure he received several honors for his service to the City of Ocala and from the Marion County Board of Commission, as well as Marion County Branch of the NAACP He and his wife are dedicated to serving Marion County communities and he too is concerned about voter suppression. There is a published Map of Shame that shows all the states involved in similar suppression laws as the ones in Florida, despite the lack of evidence of voter fraud in these states. (Contact NAACP 352-351-4560 for more information on map). Mr. Jenkins gave a nonpartisan explanation of the Amendments to the Florida Constitution that will be on the November ballot in order to help speed up the process on election-day. Comments onFriday, November 2, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, November 2, 2012 www.smcitizen.com I was off to the airport on another trip. I started out early, arrived at the airport on time but when I arrived the plane had canceled and I had to apply for another plane. The next plane headed for my destination was about two hours away. This would in fact, make me miss my connecting flight. I suppose I ought to be grateful that I was able to catch a later flight. It gave me some time to sit in the airport with nothing to do but think. Talk about a boring afternoon! One of the things I thought about was never flying again. But, necessity is the mother of inconvenience, or something like that. While I was thinking in the airport, I thought of a wise old man who, waxing philosophical, once said, Time waits for no man. I know he was wise because he did not include women in his observation. Although time will wait for no man, it has a different approach to women. Usually speaking, a man welcomes the passing of time. Proudly he displays those wrinkles and calluses as marks of manhood. Until recently, gray hair was a crown of authority. Even Solomon, the wisest man said, The hoary [gray] head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness (Proverbs 16:31 KJV). The grayer the head, the wiser the man. Although, I must confess I have seen my share of dumb grayheaded men. A woman, however, has an altogether different philosophy when it comes to time. As a man with gray hair, I do not fully understand their philosophy. I suppose there are some men who would like to be 25 again. Most men, however, are happy to be as old as they are. Women are different. They live upon the concept of ageless beauty. Who am I, as a man, to counter that philosophy? I discovered this many years ago. A woman casually asked me how old I thought she was. I have long since discovered that this is no casual question and she is not looking for exact information. I, at the time, took it as a challenge and tried to guess her age. Wrong! I have since learned that the correct response to this question is, Why, you dont look a day over 25. I do not know exactly what that means, but I have often gotten smiles from this response. No matter how old the woman is, in her mind she is still 25. The man has a different idea. Im 60, he will boast to whoever will listen, and I can still do a whole days work. Then he will go out and throw his back out just to prove it. Time has a different effect upon a man as it does upon a woman. There is nothing wrong with trying to look younger. I suppose it is an easier task to do if you are a woman than if you are a man. Every morning before I leave the house I try to make myself as non-scary to the public as I possibly can. I will scrape my face, pat down my hair, and douse myself with aftershave and in 10 minutes I am done and ready for the world. I have noticed that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage takes a lot longer than 10 minutes to get ready to face the world. I must admit she does a very good job of it, but I also must admit it takes a long time and it seems each year it gets longer. I do not want to call attention to myself. I just want to get through the day and back home again. I know I am not as young as I used to be but I take consolation in the fact that I am older than I used to be. And hand in hand with good old Father Time, I have walked down the wonderful timeline. For me personally, I like to celebrate each birthday as a once-in-a-lifetime celebration. My goal in life is to get as old as I possibly can and with the good help of Father Time, I am well on my way. Time has not stood still for me, for which I am most thankful. Just like getting to the airport on time for my flight, I want to be on time for everything happening in my life. I do not want to miss a thing. Too often people look backward, stumble over today, find themselves in tomorrow and do not know how they got there. I want to enjoy the time I have in real time. There is no time like the present to enjoy. Memories are wonderful. Aspirations are delightful. But, nothing can take the place of right now. The Bible has a lot to say about time. We are in a timeline established by God and it will not slow down into we come to the end. The apostle Paul understood this when he wrote, And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed (Romans 13:11 KJV). There is no time like the present that as someone said, This is the first day of the rest of my life. I am going to celebrate my Now with all the energy I have. Rev. James L.

BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen If we needed evidence of the impoverishment of American politics, the socalled debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney gave us all we could ask for. We normally expect a debate to highlight some disagreement, but in American politics disagreement is reserved for minor matters. The two parties actually the two divisions of the uniparty that represents the permanent regime agree on all fundamentals. If you need proof, observe how the establishment media treated Ron Paul, who challenged the permanent regimes basic premises on foreign policy, civil liberties, and monetary control. He dug too deep. Its been noted, mostly by humorists, that Romney continuously expressed his agreement with Obama across a range of issues: drone warfare, Iran, Afghanistan, even Iraq. He tried to manufacture differences by suggesting that he would have done more sooner. But this all sounded flaccid; Romney seemed desperate to draw some contrast with a foreign policy that he embraces. What does Romney really believe? Who can say? What we do know is that hes taking his foreign-policy advice from a team of neoconservatives, formerly of the George W. Bush administration, who helped dig the hole the country is in. Obama, for his part, defended his record, which someone other than Romney could have torn to shreds. Obama brags about ending the occupation of Iraq, yet he forgets that Bush had already signed an agreement, insisted on by the Iran-friendly Iraqi government, to get out by the end of 2011. What Obama wont tell you is that he begged Prime Minister Maliki to ask U.S. troops to remain. Thankfully, Maliki said no. Obama of course also mentioned the killing of Osama bin Laden. Two things about that: First, capture and trial would have been a better example for the world than summary execution by Navy SEALs. Second, the enfeebled bin Laden was a has-been by May 2011, having been kicked upstairs when he started devising impossible plots. He was no threat to the American people. Someone other than Romney might have pointed out that Obamas policy has helped to spread al-Qaedas influence beyond Afghanistan and Iraq. Thanks to the presidents drone warfare which regularly murders innocents and other interventions, there are now al-Qaeda affiliates or sympathizers in Libya, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Mali, and elsewhere. But Romney cant point this out, because he approves of Obamas imperialist policy and drone warfare. He apparently cant wait until he, like Obama, gets to personally choose targets from a presidential kill list. And then theres Iran. At the debate, Romney lauded Obamas crippling sanctions on the Iranian economy. But there is no such thing as an economy. There are only people engaged in buying and selling. Obama and Romney both say that war against Iran should be a last resort. But if that is the case, why do they dehumanize the people of Iran? Sanctions dont cripple the Iranian economy. Sanctions cripple people economically, nutritionally, and in every other respect. They make life hell for average people, especially children and the elderly. The rulers suffer least of all. Both candidates take it for granted that Iran is working toward a nuclear bomb, and that when it gets one, the American and Israeli people will be at risk. How many times did Romney say that the country is four years closer to a bomb? Of course, the debate moderator, Bob Schieffer of CBS, never challenged that premise. Like all good network stenographers, he lets his questions propagandize on behalf of the permanent regime. There are two problems with all of this: According to American and Israeli intelligence, there is no evidence Iran wants a bomb. Furthermore, even if Iran got one, all it would be good for is deterrence against continuing U.S. and Israeli domination of the Middle East. No one seriously thinks the Iranian regime is suicidal. America has thousands of nukes; Israel has hundreds. So what good would a warhead or two do Iran, even if it was intent on becoming a nuclear power? Obama and Romney are both conceited enough to think a U.S. president can and should orchestrate events in the Muslim world. That alone is reason enough to reject them both. Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine. Friday, November 2, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, November 2, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your honesty continues to impress everyone who needs reassurance about a project. But be careful you dont lose patience with those who are still not ready to act. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Pushing others too hard to do things your way could cause resentment and raise more doubts. Instead, take more time to explain why your methods will work. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be more considerate of those close to you before making a decision that could have a serious effect on their lives. Explain your intentions and ask for their advice. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might have to defend a workplace decision you plan to make. Colleagues might back you up on this, but its the facts that will ultimately win the day for you. Good luck. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The Big Cats co-workers might not be doing enough to help get that project finished. Your roars might stir things up, but gentle purrrsuasion will prove to be more effective. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Someone you care for needs help with a problem. Give it lovingly and without judging the situation. Whatever you feel you should know will be revealed later. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) While youre to be admired for how you handled recent workplace problems, be careful not to react the same way to a new situation until all the facts are in. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Rely on your keen instincts as well as the facts at hand when dealing with a troubling situation. Be patient. Take things one step at a time as you work through it.

Friday, November 2, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com A fter suffering the longest and most boring presidential campaign in our lifetime, we sought relief by voting early. To share our relief we decided to amuse our readers with a selection of thoughts about government, elections, and politicians. Author Robert Louis Stevenson suggested that politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation seems to be necessary. Attorney Clarence Darrow affirmed Mr. Stevensons thought: When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become president. Now Ive come to believe it. Do you ever wonder whether the real reason we hold elections is to find out if any of the polls were right? Perhaps next time we could rely on the polls. Theyre faster and less expensive. After all, elections are just the process by which we select the people who will get the blame for everything. Could it be that political campaigns are just contrived exhibitions of political hysteria, intended to distract voters from the real issues by paralyzing their ability to think? Columnist and essayist Simeon Strunsky believes popular government is only a theory, because no one has yet found a government that is popular at least not for very long. Irish playwright and critic George Bernard Shaw explained that the chief defect of democracies is that only the party out of office knows how the government should be run. Author and critic H.L. Mencken also tried to explain the problem. He said democratic government is like running a circus from inside the monkey cage. Presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson said in 1952 that the ultimate indignity of the election process is that you can merchandise candidates for high office like breakfast cereal. On the positive side, elections are the only races in which most people pick the winner. The person elected gets 51 percent of the votes cast by the 60 percent of eligible voters who bothered to register. Perhaps government is too big and too important to be left to politicians. As one observer noted, government is the only vessel that leaks from the top. Nothing is easier than spending public money. Because it doesnt seem to belong to anybody, the temptation to spend it is overwhelming. Theres a myth that government can do any job cheaply because it doesnt have to make a profit. The business of government is to stay out of business, but somehow government has become a senior partner in every business in the country. In Congress members rise to speak and say nothing. Nobody listens. Then everybody disagrees. Nonetheless, Congress seems to favor a stable government, judging by the amount of stalling and horsing around that goes on. Mr. Dooley (Finley Peter Dunne) observed that a man who expects to train lobsters to fly is considered a lunatic and confined to an asylum. But a man who believes politicians can be turned into angels by getting elected is called a reformer and is allowed to remain at large. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, November 2, 2012 T here are three people on the ballot who have received more than the usual attention this year. Their names are R. Fred Lewis, Barbara J. Pariente and Peggy A. Quince. Whats that? Youre not familiar with them? Well, theyre the three Florida Supreme Court justices due for a merit retention vote on Nov. 6. This year, the retention vote has me a little bit indecisive. Justices, and appellate judges, must be on the ballot every six years. Since the system was instituted in the 1970s, no justice has ever been rejected. The system was put in because of supposed corruption in the partisan election of judges before that. But this year, theres a push to defeat all three. Its because of an Obamacare ruling, where they were part of a majority that struck down a proposed state amendment that would have said that Floridians may not be required to buy the mandated insurance under the health care plan. The push comes mainly from Republicans, who feel the ruling did not reflect the will of the people, who they feel would have passed the amendment. A similar amendment made it through to the ballot this year. Theres a lot of hand-wringing about this movement, saying that people are trying to politicize the court. Well, sorry folks, but the courts have already done that themselves. Many courts, including the highest court in the land, often vote on the side of the party that appointed them, without regard to the will of the people. Theyre supposed to rule based on the law, but its no surprise that to each of them the law comes down on the side of one political party. All three of these justices were appointed by the late Gov. Lawton Chiles, a Democrat, although Quince also had the backing of incoming Republican Gov. Jeb Bush. This movement has had success before, but not in Florida. In Iowa, three justices were removed because of a ruling permitting same-sex marriage, and a fourth is on the ballot this year. This race this year has presented a quandary for me. You see, I dont believe in lifetime appointments for any judges, whether federal or state. When you appoint people to a lifetime anything, they can get complacent and possibly not approach their assignment with the zeal that is needed. As a result of being in favor of term limits, I always vote no for merit retention for all judges. I think a steady turnover would be healthy for the districts, state and nation. I do feel that an amendment in the state against Obamacare is a waste of time. The only way to get rid of that health plan is to knock the Democrats out of the White House and Congress. I really dont understand why people are fanatical about trying to take action at the state level. Anyone whos been around knows that this is a futile effort. So how to vote? Do I vote to punish the three justices who pretty much said the same thing, that this is a federal problem that wont be solved at the state level? Do I vote against these three justices because of my usual term limit bias, knowing full well that for the first time, my vote in this issue may, for a change, actually count? Or do I go against my general principles and vote to keep these justices on the court for another six years? At this writing, Ive still got a little time to make up my mind. But Ill be watching the vote count very closely on the night of Nov. 6 or more likely, in the morning hours of Nov. 7.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

I t all comes down to one day. This coming Tuesday, Nov. 6, is Election Day, which will mark the end (we hope) of all the nastiness and bickering, interrupting phone calls and wild television ads. Its all up to you, now. If you havent voted early, then be prepared for a bit of a wait, but help yourself by reading your sample ballot and being prepared when you go to the polls. Its the 11 amendments that are clogging the ballot, all of them thanks to the Legislature, none of them what we would call grass roots amendments. Its all the doing of our Tallahassee legislators. Polling places will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Then the scene turns to the Supervisor of Elections office, where ballots will be tallied. At this writing, there is still a dispute concerning the sheriffs race. It involves the counting of absentee ballots for Dan Kuhn, which now will be credited to Chris Blair. There is a state law here that could negate any challenge by Bernie DeCastro, but he does have a point. He wants all the ballots that voted for Dan Kuhn before Blair was named to replace him to be thrown out. It does seem to be a fair point when he says theres no guarantee that all those absentee early voters who voted for Kuhn might not have voted that way if they knew they were voting for Blair. Of course, our stand hasnt changed. Were basically against voting early, and this dispute only magnifies the argument we have made all along, even before the sheriffs race controversy. When you vote early, you lose the right to change your vote should anything happen before Nov. 6 that would change the landscape. In this case the change was major, but those who already voted are out of luck. The law specifically says that once an absentee ballot is submitted, it cant be altered. Of course, those who wrote the law probably never envisioned what is taking place in our local sheriffs race, but thats hindsight. The fact is that those who voted early by absentee ballot cant change their minds, even though they thought they were voting for Kuhn, and are now voting for Blair. This story undoubtedly isnt over, but regardless, if you havent voted, make sure you get out there on Tuesday. While the national race for president is drawing the most attention across the U.S., there are several other key races. You have the power to help decide. Make sure you use it. We will have a link on our website to the vote tally. Go to smcitizen.com for all the latest figures on election night. Be aware also that, as we stated last week and in the issues before that, no political letters are being published in this final edition before the vote. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Now the election is up to you Merit retention and Floridas courts Jim Flynn Columnist Be of good cheer; end of the election is near Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED the 11 Amendments are provided in the 2012 Florida Election & Voter Guide newspaper that has been circulated in the community so his comments are in addition to that publication. He also provided opportunity for questions on the ballot. Do not forget to vote for the last item on the ballot (after Amendment #12). This bond issue concerns Munroe Regional Hospital which is of particular significance to our community. MRMC is the largest private employer in Marion County with 2,479 employees at an average annual compensation of $42,781. The total annual economic impact of Munroe to the County is estimated at $525 million. The Amendments and the local bond issues will affect you in some way so read the newspaper outlining the impact of yes or no vote, and ask questions before you vote so that you are clear on the impact you want.

On that date the sea ice reached its summer minimum, 1.32 million square miles, half of what the average size of summer ice was between 1979 and 2000, and almost 20 percent lower than the previous record minimum of 1.61 million square miles set on Sept. 18, 2007. NSIDC added that, despite especially warm conditions in 2007 being much more favorable for sea ice loss than this year, the thinning of sea ice due to climate change has made the ice more vulnerable to breakup and melting. Meanwhile, researchers with the European Space Agencys CryoSat-2 probe reported in August that beyond the loss of sea-ice extent, the thickness and volume of the ice has also been declining significantly faster than expected. They found just 1,679 cubic miles this past summer as compared to 3,118 cubic miles in the summer of 2004. They anticipate that the Arctic could be ice-free in the summer for a day or more by the end of the decade. The implications of such melting are potentially immense. For starters, wildlife like polar bears, seals and walruses depend on sea ice for their survival; their habitat is literally being pulled out from under them. Polar bears were added to the federal Endangered Species List in 2008 for this very reason in what environmentalists herald as a great victory in that the federal government officially recognized the existence of global warming and would therefore be able to take more decisive action to rein in carbon pollutionof course, that part of the dream has yet to be realized. Perhaps even more alarming is the fact that melting sea ice and accelerating Arctic warming spur changes in the jet stream that increase the frequency of weather extremes like droughts, floods, heat waves and cold spells in the mid-latitude regions of the Northern Hemisphere. The fact that 2012 has been a scorcher all aroundJuly was the hottest month on record, with two-thirds of the U.S. in drought, wildfires running rampant and half the counties in the country designated as federal disaster areasonly makes the connection between carbon pollution and the greenhouse effect all the more apparent. Environmentalists argue that we already have the technology and the legal tools to achieve rapid greenhouse pollution reductions Full use of all of the Clean Air Acts successful pollution-reduction programs is our best route to quick reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, says Shaye Wolf, climate science director at the Center for Biological Diversitys Climate Law Institute. The Obama administration, however, has been too slow and timid in using this bedrock law to cut pollution. The polar meltdown shows were teetering on the brink of climate-change catastrophe, adds Wolf. Arctic sea ice plays a critical role in regulating the planets climate. We cant wait any longer to cut carbon pollution. Dear E arthTalk : What s the latest on the proposal to turn parts of the Northern Forest in Maine into a big national park ? -Peter G riswold J affrey NH The idea of turning a large chunk of forest in central Maine into a national park dates back at least 150 years when Henry David Thoreau himself called for making the region a national preserve in essays about his travels through the area via foot and canoe in the 1850s. To this day most of the areas in central Maine that Thoreau visited are still primarily undeveloped save for intermittent timber extraction. But recent changes in land ownership there are worrying ecologists. The non-profit RESTORE: The North Woods has been carrying the torch for creating a Maine Woods National Park and Preserve for 20 years and reports that, between 1994 and 2005, the share of forest land in Maines 9.3 million acre Unorganized Territory Arctic summer sea levels at lowest point ever E ARTH TALK PLEASESEEEARTH TALK PAGE30 CANADIAN MEDS 000CZJK 7380 SW 60th Ave., Ste #1, Ocala 237-0021 Locally Owned and Operated NEW CUSTOMERS PRESENT THIS AD AND GET $10 OFF!

She was born in West Des Moines, Iowa March 19, 1918 and graduated from Valley Junction High School. While in high school Maxine discovered her natural talent for music, playing instruments ranging from the French horn to bass drum. Music was a passion she explored and enjoyed throughout her entire life. Upon graduating from high school Maxine attended Business College in Des Moines, Iowa. While in Business College she began corresponding with a classmate whom she had known since the second grade. This cross-country correspondence blossomed into a lifelong romance with the love of Maxines life Frank Wood. With the onset of WWII, Frank served overseas while Maxine supported the home front by volunteering her time supporting the war effort and in raising their young son, Dennis. Following WWII, Maxine was active in church and community organizations during which time her second son, Gary, was born. Maxines early married years were spent in Virginia raising her sons, instilling a love and appreciation of American history which they enjoy to this day. In 1959, with her beloved Franks job transfer, she moved her family west to Downers Grove, Ill., where they resided for the next 30 years. In 1989, Maxine moved to Ocala where she attended the Ocala West United Methodist Church. She was a lifelong member of the Womens Society of Christian Service (WSCS) and was very active in the Oak Run Community. While living in Central Florida, she pursued her hobbies of raising African Violets and knitting hats, scarves, and blankets for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Maxine is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 71 years, Frank H. Wood; and is survived by children, Dennis Wood and his wife, Penny of Washington State, and Gary Wood and his wife, Nancy of Dacula, Ga.; grandchildren, Stephen, Michael, Douglas, Kimberly, and Kelley plus nine great-grandchildren. Maxine touched and affected the lives of many people she will be dearly missed by all. Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service at 1 p.m., Friday, Nov. 9, 2012 at Ocala West United Methodist Church with Pastor Alan Jefferson officiating.

RESTORE is concerned that this dramatic change positions the region for a real estate gold rush. A huge development already planned for the shores of Moosehead Lake in the region is just one example of the kinds of changes afoot that could decimate the regions wilderness qualities. RESTOREs proposal, first aired in 1994, calls for setting aside 3.2-million acres surrounding Baxter State Park (home of Maines tallest peak, Mt. Katahdin, and the northern tip of the Appalachian Trail) as a national park. Bigger than Yellowstone and Yosemite combined, the proposed park would safeguard thousands of miles of rivers and streams while providing unfragmented habitat for wildlife. According to RESTORE, there are no significant chunks of undeveloped wilderness anywhere in the Northeastern United States and that such a large park is needed to protect wildlife habitat on a landscape scale to allow for adaptation in the face of unprecedented climate change. Also, the proposed park would ensure permanent access for outdoor recreation and support a diversified and sustainable economy. Although RESTOREs campaign has the backing of a majority of Maine residents, it has failed to gain enough traction to make it before Congress. Some blame local opposition, allied as the Maine Woods Coalition, for convincing the states Congressional delegation not to push for the proposal. A new proposal from Burts bees founder Roxanne Quimby later rekindled the issue: In May 2011 she ofEARTH TALKCONTINUED FROM PAGE 29 fered to donate up to 70,000 acres she owns adjacent to Baxter State Park for a new national park, along with a $40 million endowment for park operations. And to appease those opposed to RESTOREs proposal, she offered a similar amount of land for multiple-use, including hunting. Quimbys proposal includes only lands she owns, and would create a much smaller park than what RESTORE envisioned. A few months after Quimby made her offer known U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis held a public listening session in Millinocket, Maine. But then in February 2012, Maines Congressional delegation convinced Secretary Salazar to table the new proposal for the time being. So for now, the fate of millions of treesthe veritable lungs of the Northeastern U.S.and hundreds of wildlife species may just hang in the balance. 000D3UT M i l l e n n i u m H a i r S a l o n at our new location 8 2 9 6 S W 1 0 3 r d S t R d 3 5 2 2 3 7 3 6 7 6 M o n d a y F r i d a y 9 5 S a t u r d a y 9 4 W a l k I n s W e l c o m e A Certified Goldwell Color Salon With coupon.

ANYITEMPRICEDUNDER $100MAXIMUM 10 WORDS RUNSFOR 2 WEEKS FREE TOLL FREE 1-877-676-1403 Expert testimony from scientists appearing before the NRC judges on behalf of the Ecology Party of Florida and Nuclear Information & Resource Service (NIRS) warned that construction and operation of the proposed dual reactors would deplete the regions aquifer, cause saltwater intrusion to the already-imperiled local water supply, and harm fragile springs and wetland plants and wildlife in the area. The location of the proposed two-reactor project is nine miles inland from the Gulf coast, in an ecologically rich area consisting of forest and more than 700 acres of fresh-water wetlands. The wetlands play a critical role in the ecological health of the region and provide habitat for endangered and threatened species such as the Florida manatee and wood storks. We are talking about Progress Energy trashing important wetland areas of the United States, said Ecology Party of Florida Treasurer Gary Hecker. The notion that a massive nuclear reactor project can reverse the flow of water from fresh to saltwater and have no impact on this delicate ecosystem is preposterous. And we take no comfort whatsoever in Progress Energys glib assertions that the problem somehow can be mitigated after massive and most likely irreversible damage is done in the region. Mary Olson, director of NIRS Southeast U.S. office, said: Now that the NRC is headed by a respected geologist, our hope is that the very weak geology science that went into the Levy reactor site review will be a thing of the past. Knowing of NRC Chair Allison Macfarlanes outstanding credentials, it is our hope that a review that blindly rubberstamps the wishes of industry will be replaced by a more independent and serious-minded approach to bona fide geology concerns. The testimony of the experts contradicts an environmental study prepared by the NRC finding that the effects of the two reactors on the wetlands will be relatively minor. The groups and their experts contend the NRCs conclusion is wrong because it grossly oversimplifies the complex karst geology and hydrology of the region. Experts on karst geology testified that the planned water withdrawals will very likely dry up springs and wetlands in localized areas throughout the region, threatening wildlife and the fragile wetland ecosystems and causing existing wells to become more saline. The Ecology Party of Florida is a political party that believes that environmental protection is of paramount importance because without a healthy environment quality of life suffers. Nuclear Information and Resource Service, founded in 1978 by grassroots activists, serves as an information clearinghouse for members of public concerned about nuclear safety. NIRS also promotes a non-nuclear U.S. energy policy. Retirement Ceremony Senior Chief Petty Officer Robert A. Morrissette hugs his mother, Barbara Jaggers of Ocala, the South Marion Citizens circulation coordinator, as Capt. Mark Wegge looks on. Morrissette, a graduate of Forest High School, was honored on the occasion of his retirement after 25 years of service. The ceremony was held at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center on Oct. 20.

After the vote for president, there are four people on the ballot in the race for the U.S. Senate, including Connie Mack and Bill Nelson. Also on the list with no party affiliation are Bill Gaylor and Chris Borgia. Depending on where you live, there are Congressional, state Senate and state House races on the ballot. In Marion County, there are four contested countywide elections, starting with the battleground of the race of sheriff. The ballot lists Dan Kuhn and Bernie DeCastro, but Kuhn has withdrawn and Chris Blair is now the candidate. However, to vote for Blair, voters must fill in the ballot for Kuhn. The case is still in court, where DeCastro is trying to get Blair either thrown off the ballot, since he already lost in the primary, or have absentee votes for Kuhn that were sent in before Blair replaced Kuhn tossed out. The other key local races, almost lost in the shadows of the sheriffs battle, include George Tomyn vs. Diana Greene in the race for superintendent of schools, Wesley Wilcox vs. Judge Cochran for supervisor of elections and Earl Arnett vs. Jessica Hadley for County Commission. Two other commission candidates, David Moore and Stan McClain, are on the ballot with no opposition listed, although there are write-in candidates. Because the Florida Legislature is controlled by Republicans, the GOP is listed first in each race. There are three Florida Supreme Court justices up for merit retention, 11 state Constitution amendments and, at the end of the ballot, the bond issue for Munroe County Hospital District. For those who have absentee ballots, they must be returned to the Supervisor of Elections office by 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Those who are mailing the ballots back are reminded that it costs 65 cents in postage because of the size of the ballot. It is suggested that people vote early on Tuesday, Lines are expected.

The new school, called Marion e-Learning, offers students in kindergarten through fifth grade the option to enroll in online classes for a custom-tailored education. They work at their own pace, on their own time, in their own space. Regular face-to-face meetings keep students and teachers familiar with each other. Science fair participation, field trips, and awards ceremonies are some of the activities available to students. The online experience offers students interactive multi-media content and is available free of charge. Students must have their own computer with Internet access, webcam, microphone, and access to a public library. Teachers are state-certified and developed the actual curriculum, which is aligned to Common Core state standards.

ANYITEMPRICEDUNDER $100MAXIMUM 10 WORDS RUNSFOR 2 WEEKSFREE TOLL FREE1-877-676-1403 Expert testimony from scientists appearing before the NRC judges on behalf of the Ecology Party of Florida and Nuclear Information & Resource Service (NIRS) warned that construction and operation of the proposed dual reactors would deplete the regions aquifer, cause saltwater intrusion to the already-imperiled local water supply, and harm fragile springs and wetland plants and wildlife in the area. The location of the proposed two-reactor project is nine miles inland from the Gulf coast, in an ecologically rich area consisting of forest and more than 700 acres of fresh-water wetlands. The wetlands play a critical role in the ecological health of the region and provide habitat for endangered and threatened species such as the Florida manatee and wood storks. We are talking about Progress Energy trashing important wetland areas of the United States, said Ecology Party of Florida Treasurer Gary Hecker. The notion that a massive nuclear reactor project can reverse the flow of water from fresh to saltwater and have no impact on this delicate ecosystem is preposterous. And we take no comfort whatsoever in Progress Energys glib assertions that the problem somehow can be mitigated after massive and most likely irreversible damage is done in the region. Mary Olson, director of NIRS Southeast U.S. office, said: Now that the NRC is headed by a respected geologist, our hope is that the very weak geology science that went into the Levy reactor site review will be a thing of the past. Knowing of NRC Chair Allison Macfarlanes outstanding credentials, it is our hope that a review that blindly rubberstamps the wishes of industry will be replaced by a more independent and serious-minded approach to bona fide geology concerns. The testimony of the experts contradicts an environmental study prepared by the NRC finding that the effects of the two reactors on the wetlands will be relatively minor. The groups and their experts contend the NRCs conclusion is wrong because it grossly oversimplifies the complex karst geology and hydrology of the region. Experts on karst geology testified that the planned water withdrawals will very likely dry up springs and wetlands in localized areas throughout the region, threatening wildlife and the fragile wetland ecosystems and causing existing wells to become more saline. The Ecology Party of Florida is a political party that believes that environmental protection is of paramount importance because without a healthy environment quality of life suffers. Nuclear Information and Resource Service, founded in 1978 by grassroots activists, serves as an information clearinghouse for members of public concerned about nuclear safety. NIRS also promotes a non-nuclear U.S. energy policy. Retirement CeremonySenior Chief Petty Officer Robert A. Morrissette hugs his mother, Barbara Jaggers of Ocala, the South Marion Citizens circulation coordinator, as Capt. Mark Wegge looks on. Morrissette, a graduate of Forest High School, was honored on the occasion of his retirement after 25 years of service. The ceremony was held at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center on Oct. 20. Jaggers was presented with the Military Parent Medal (inset) during the ceremony. NUKECONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Hospice volunteers neededVolunteers Needed.

She was born in West Des Moines, Iowa March 19, 1918 and graduated from Valley Junction High School.

Music was a passion she explored and enjoyed throughout her entire life. Upon graduating from high school Maxine attended Business College in Des Moines, Iowa.

Following WWII, Maxine was active in church and community organizations during which time her second son, Gary, was born. Maxines early married years were spent in Virginia raising her sons, instilling a love and appreciation of American history which they enjoy to this day. In 1959, with her beloved Franks job transfer, she moved her family west to Downers Grove, Ill., where they resided for the next 30 years. In 1989, Maxine moved to Ocala where she attended the Ocala West United Methodist Church. She was a lifelong member of the Womens Society of Christian Service (WSCS) and was very active in the Oak Run Community.

Baked ham dinner scheduled owned by timber companies dropped from 59.2 to 15.5 percent while that owned by investors grew from 3.2 to 32.6 percent. RESTORE is concerned that this dramatic change positions the region for a real estate gold rush. A huge development already planned for the shores of Moosehead Lake in the region is just one example of the kinds of changes afoot that could decimate the regions wilderness qualities. RESTOREs proposal, first aired in 1994, calls for setting aside 3.2-million acres surrounding Baxter State Park (home of Maines tallest peak, Mt. Katahdin, and the northern tip of the Appalachian Trail) as a national park. Bigger than Yellowstone and Yosemite combined, the proposed park would safeguard thousands of miles of rivers and streams while providing unfragmented habitat for wildlife. According to RESTORE, there are no significant chunks of undeveloped wilderness anywhere in the Northeastern United States and that such a large park is needed to protect wildlife habitat on a landscape scale to allow for adaptation in the face of unprecedented climate change. Also, the proposed park would ensure permanent access for outdoor recreation and support a diversified and sustainable economy. Although RESTOREs campaign has the backing of a majority of Maine residents, it has failed to gain enough traction to make it before Congress. Some blame local opposition, allied as the Maine Woods Coalition, for convincing the states Congressional delegation not to push for the proposal. A new proposal from Burts bees founder Roxanne Quimby later rekindled the issue: In May 2011 she ofEARTH TALKCONTINUED FROM PAGE 29 fered to donate up to 70,000 acres she owns adjacent to Baxter State Park for a new national park, along with a $40 million endowment for park operations. And to appease those opposed to RESTOREs proposal, she offered a similar amount of land for multiple-use, including hunting. Quimbys proposal includes only lands she owns, and would create a much smaller park than what RESTORE envisioned. A few months after Quimby made her offer known U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis held a public listening session in Millinocket, Maine. But then in February 2012, Maines Congressional delegation convinced Secretary Salazar to table the new proposal for the time being. So for now, the fate of millions of treesthe veritable lungs of the Northeastern U.S.and hundreds of wildlife species may just hang in the balance. 000D3UT Millennium Hair Salon at our new location 8296 SW 103rd St. Rd. 352-237-3676 Monday Friday 9-5, Saturday 9-4 Walk-Ins Welcome A Certified Goldwell Color Salon With coupon.

On that date the sea ice reached its summer minimum, 1.32 million square miles, half of what the average size of summer ice was between 1979 and 2000, and almost 20 percent lower than the previous record minimum of 1.61 million square miles set on Sept. 18, 2007. NSIDC added that, despite especially warm conditions in 2007 being much more favorable for sea ice loss than this year, the thinning of sea ice due to climate change has made the ice more vulnerable to breakup and melting. Meanwhile, researchers with the European Space Agencys CryoSat-2 probe reported in August that beyond the loss of sea-ice extent, the thickness and volume of the ice has also been declining significantly faster than expected. They found just 1,679 cubic miles this past summer as compared to 3,118 cubic miles in the summer of 2004. They anticipate that the Arctic could be ice-free in the summer for a day or more by the end of the decade. The implications of such melting are potentially immense. For starters, wildlife like polar bears, seals and walruses depend on sea ice for their survival; their habitat is literally being pulled out from under them. Polar bears were added to the federal Endangered Species List in 2008 for this very reason in what environmentalists herald as a great victory in that the federal government officially recognized the existence of global warming and would therefore be able to take more decisive action to rein in carbon pollutionof course, that part of the dream has yet to be realized. Perhaps even more alarming is the fact that melting sea ice and accelerating Arctic warming spur changes in the jet stream that increase the frequency of weather extremes like droughts, floods, heat waves and cold spells in the mid-latitude regions of the Northern Hemisphere. The fact that 2012 has been a scorcher all aroundJuly was the hottest month on record, with two-thirds of the U.S. in drought, wildfires running rampant and half the counties in the country designated as federal disaster areasonly makes the connection between carbon pollution and the greenhouse effect all the more apparent. Environmentalists argue that we already have the technology and the legal tools to achieve rapid greenhouse pollution reductions Full use of all of the Clean Air Acts successful pollution-reduction programs is our best route to quick reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, says Shaye Wolf, climate science director at the Center for Biological Diversitys Climate Law Institute. The Obama administration, however, has been too slow and timid in using this bedrock law to cut pollution. The polar meltdown shows were teetering on the brink of climate-change catastrophe, adds Wolf. Arctic sea ice plays a critical role in regulating the planets climate. We cant wait any longer to cut carbon pollution. Dear E arthTalk: What s the latest on the proposal to turn parts of the Northern Forest in Maine into a big national park? -Peter G riswold, J affrey NH The idea of turning a large chunk of forest in central Maine into a national park dates back at least 150 years when Henry David Thoreau himself called for making the region a national preserve in essays about his travels through the area via foot and canoe in the 1850s. To this day most of the areas in central Maine that Thoreau visited are still primarily undeveloped save for intermittent timber extraction. But recent changes in land ownership there are worrying ecologists. The non-profit RESTORE: The North Woods has been carrying the torch for creating a Maine Woods National Park and Preserve for 20 years and reports that, between 1994 and 2005, the share of forest land in Maines 9.3 million acre Unorganized Territory Arctic summer sea levels at lowest point ever EARTH TALK PLEASESEEEARTH TALK, PAGE30 CANADIAN MEDS 000CZJK 7380 SW 60th A ve., Ste #1, Ocala 237-0021 Locally Owned and Operated NEW CUSTOMERS PRESENT THIS AD AND GET $10 OFF!

Friday, November 2, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com After suffering the longest and most boring presidential campaign in our lifetime, we sought relief by voting early. To share our relief we decided to amuse our readers with a selection of thoughts about government, elections, and politicians. Author Robert Louis Stevenson suggested that politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation seems to be necessary. Attorney Clarence Darrow affirmed Mr. Stevensons thought: When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become president. Now Ive come to believe it. Do you ever wonder whether the real reason we hold elections is to find out if any of the polls were right? Perhaps next time we could rely on the polls. Theyre faster and less expensive. After all, elections are just the process by which we select the people who will get the blame for everything. Could it be that political campaigns are just contrived exhibitions of political hysteria, intended to distract voters from the real issues by paralyzing their ability to think? Columnist and essayist Simeon Strunsky believes popular government is only a theory, because no one has yet found a government that is popular at least not for very long. Irish playwright and critic George Bernard Shaw explained that the chief defect of democracies is that only the party out of office knows how the government should be run. Author and critic H.L. Mencken also tried to explain the problem. He said democratic government is like running a circus from inside the monkey cage. Presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson said in 1952 that the ultimate indignity of the election process is that you can merchandise candidates for high office like breakfast cereal. On the positive side, elections are the only races in which most people pick the winner. The person elected gets 51 percent of the votes cast by the 60 percent of eligible voters who bothered to register. Perhaps government is too big and too important to be left to politicians. As one observer noted, government is the only vessel that leaks from the top. Nothing is easier than spending public money. Because it doesnt seem to belong to anybody, the temptation to spend it is overwhelming. Theres a myth that government can do any job cheaply because it doesnt have to make a profit. The business of government is to stay out of business, but somehow government has become a senior partner in every business in the country. In Congress members rise to speak and say nothing. Nobody listens. Then everybody disagrees. Nonetheless, Congress seems to favor a stable government, judging by the amount of stalling and horsing around that goes on. Mr. Dooley (Finley Peter Dunne) observed that a man who expects to train lobsters to fly is considered a lunatic and confined to an asylum. But a man who believes politicians can be turned into angels by getting elected is called a reformer and is allowed to remain at large. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, November 2, 2012 There are three people on the ballot who have received more than the usual attention this year. Their names are R. Fred Lewis, Barbara J. Pariente and Peggy A. Quince. Whats that? Youre not familiar with them? Well, theyre the three Florida Supreme Court justices due for a merit retention vote on Nov. 6. This year, the retention vote has me a little bit indecisive. Justices, and appellate judges, must be on the ballot every six years. Since the system was instituted in the 1970s, no justice has ever been rejected. The system was put in because of supposed corruption in the partisan election of judges before that. But this year, theres a push to defeat all three. Its because of an Obamacare ruling, where they were part of a majority that struck down a proposed state amendment that would have said that Floridians may not be required to buy the mandated insurance under the health care plan. The push comes mainly from Republicans, who feel the ruling did not reflect the will of the people, who they feel would have passed the amendment. A similar amendment made it through to the ballot this year. Theres a lot of hand-wringing about this movement, saying that people are trying to politicize the court. Well, sorry folks, but the courts have already done that themselves. Many courts, including the highest court in the land, often vote on the side of the party that appointed them, without regard to the will of the people. Theyre supposed to rule based on the law, but its no surprise that to each of them the law comes down on the side of one political party. All three of these justices were appointed by the late Gov. Lawton Chiles, a Democrat, although Quince also had the backing of incoming Republican Gov. Jeb Bush. This movement has had success before, but not in Florida. In Iowa, three justices were removed because of a ruling permitting same-sex marriage, and a fourth is on the ballot this year. This race this year has presented a quandary for me. You see, I dont believe in lifetime appointments for any judges, whether federal or state. When you appoint people to a lifetime anything, they can get complacent and possibly not approach their assignment with the zeal that is needed. As a result of being in favor of term limits, I always vote no for merit retention for all judges. I think a steady turnover would be healthy for the districts, state and nation. I do feel that an amendment in the state against Obamacare is a waste of time. The only way to get rid of that health plan is to knock the Democrats out of the White House and Congress. I really dont understand why people are fanatical about trying to take action at the state level. Anyone whos been around knows that this is a futile effort. So how to vote? Do I vote to punish the three justices who pretty much said the same thing, that this is a federal problem that wont be solved at the state level? Do I vote against these three justices because of my usual term limit bias, knowing full well that for the first time, my vote in this issue may, for a change, actually count? Or do I go against my general principles and vote to keep these justices on the court for another six years? At this writing, Ive still got a little time to make up my mind. But Ill be watching the vote count very closely on the night of Nov. 6 or more likely, in the morning hours of Nov. 7.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

It all comes down to one day. This coming Tuesday, Nov. 6, is Election Day, which will mark the end (we hope) of all the nastiness and bickering, interrupting phone calls and wild television ads. Its all up to you, now. If you havent voted early, then be prepared for a bit of a wait, but help yourself by reading your sample ballot and being prepared when you go to the polls. Its the 11 amendments that are clogging the ballot, all of them thanks to the Legislature, none of them what we would call grass roots amendments. Its all the doing of our Tallahassee legislators. Polling places will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Then the scene turns to the Supervisor of Elections office, where ballots will be tallied. At this writing, there is still a dispute concerning the sheriffs race. It involves the counting of absentee ballots for Dan Kuhn, which now will be credited to Chris Blair. There is a state law here that could negate any challenge by Bernie DeCastro, but he does have a point. He wants all the ballots that voted for Dan Kuhn before Blair was named to replace him to be thrown out. It does seem to be a fair point when he says theres no guarantee that all those absentee early voters who voted for Kuhn might not have voted that way if they knew they were voting for Blair. Of course, our stand hasnt changed. Were basically against voting early, and this dispute only magnifies the argument we have made all along, even before the sheriffs race controversy. When you vote early, you lose the right to change your vote should anything happen before Nov. 6 that would change the landscape. In this case the change was major, but those who already voted are out of luck. The law specifically says that once an absentee ballot is submitted, it cant be altered. Of course, those who wrote the law probably never envisioned what is taking place in our local sheriffs race, but thats hindsight. The fact is that those who voted early by absentee ballot cant change their minds, even though they thought they were voting for Kuhn, and are now voting for Blair.

BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenIf we needed evidence of the impoverishment of American politics, the socalled debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney gave us all we could ask for. We normally expect a debate to highlight some disagreement, but in American politics disagreement is reserved for minor matters. The two parties actually the two divisions of the uniparty that represents the permanent regime agree on all fundamentals. If you need proof, observe how the establishment media treated Ron Paul, who challenged the permanent regimes basic premises on foreign policy, civil liberties, and monetary control. He dug too deep. Its been noted, mostly by humorists, that Romney continuously expressed his agreement with Obama across a range of issues: drone warfare, Iran, Afghanistan, even Iraq. He tried to manufacture differences by suggesting that he would have done more sooner. But this all sounded flaccid; Romney seemed desperate to draw some contrast with a foreign policy that he embraces. What does Romney really believe? Who can say? What we do know is that hes taking his foreign-policy advice from a team of neoconservatives, formerly of the George W. Bush administration, who helped dig the hole the country is in. Obama, for his part, defended his record, which someone other than Romney could have torn to shreds. Obama brags about ending the occupation of Iraq, yet he forgets that Bush had already signed an agreement, insisted on by the Iran-friendly Iraqi government, to get out by the end of 2011. What Obama wont tell you is that he begged Prime Minister Maliki to ask U.S. troops to remain. Thankfully, Maliki said no. Obama of course also mentioned the killing of Osama bin Laden. Two things about that: First, capture and trial would have been a better example for the world than summary execution by Navy SEALs. Second, the enfeebled bin Laden was a has-been by May 2011, having been kicked upstairs when he started devising impossible plots. He was no threat to the American people. Someone other than Romney might have pointed out that Obamas policy has helped to spread al-Qaedas influence beyond Afghanistan and Iraq. Thanks to the presidents drone warfare which regularly murders innocents and other interventions, there are now al-Qaeda affiliates or sympathizers in Libya, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Mali, and elsewhere. But Romney cant point this out, because he approves of Obamas imperialist policy and drone warfare. He apparently cant wait until he, like Obama, gets to personally choose targets from a presidential kill list. And then theres Iran. At the debate, Romney lauded Obamas crippling sanctions on the Iranian economy. But there is no such thing as an economy. There are only people engaged in buying and selling. Obama and Romney both say that war against Iran should be a last resort. But if that is the case, why do they dehumanize the people of Iran? Sanctions dont cripple the Iranian economy. Sanctions cripple people economically, nutritionally, and in every other respect. They make life hell for average people, especially children and the elderly. The rulers suffer least of all. Both candidates take it for granted that Iran is working toward a nuclear bomb, and that when it gets one, the American and Israeli people will be at risk. How many times did Romney say that the country is four years closer to a bomb? Of course, the debate moderator, Bob Schieffer of CBS, never challenged that premise. Like all good network stenographers, he lets his questions propagandize on behalf of the permanent regime. There are two problems with all of this: According to American and Israeli intelligence, there is no evidence Iran wants a bomb. Furthermore, even if Iran got one, all it would be good for is deterrence against continuing U.S. and Israeli domination of the Middle East. No one seriously thinks the Iranian regime is suicidal. America has thousands of nukes; Israel has hundreds. So what good would a warhead or two do Iran, even if it was intent on becoming a nuclear power? Obama and Romney are both conceited enough to think a U.S. president can and should orchestrate events in the Muslim world. That alone is reason enough to reject them both.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine.Friday, November 2, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, November 2, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your honesty continues to impress everyone who needs reassurance about a project. But be careful you dont lose patience with those who are still not ready to act. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Pushing others too hard to do things your way could cause resentment and raise more doubts. Instead, take more time to explain why your methods will work. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be more considerate of those close to you before making a decision that could have a serious effect on their lives. Explain your intentions and ask for their advice. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might have to defend a workplace decision you plan to make. Colleagues might back you up on this, but its the facts that will ultimately win the day for you. Good luck. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The Big Cats co-workers might not be doing enough to help get that project finished. Your roars might stir things up, but gentle purrrsuasion will prove to be more effective. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Someone you care for needs help with a problem. Give it lovingly and without judging the situation. Whatever you feel you should know will be revealed later. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) While youre to be admired for how you handled recent workplace problems, be careful not to react the same way to a new situation until all the facts are in. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Rely on your keen instincts as well as the facts at hand when dealing with a troubling situation. Be patient. Take things one step at a time as you work through it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your curiosity leads you to ask questions. However, the answers might not be what you hoped to hear. Dont reject them without checking them out. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Be careful not to tackle a problem without sufficient facts. Even surefooted Goats need to know where theyll land before leaping off a mountain path. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Appearances can be deceiving. You need to do more investigating before investing your time, let alone your money, in something that might have some hidden flaws. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your recent stand on an issue could make you the focus of more attention than you would like. But youll regain your privacy, as well as more time with loved ones by weeks end. BORN THIS WEEK: Youre a good friend and a trusted confidante.

BY ENID B. JONES Special to the CitizenThe next meeting of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club will be Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. at Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. In keeping with the excitement of the approaching election, our September meeting focused on the voting process and the November ballot in Florida. The topics for the discussion at this meeting were the amendments that will be on the ballot in November and restoring civil rights at a time when voter rights are being challenged in Florida. Our guest speakers, Mr. and Mrs. Whitfield Jenkins, were uniquely qualified to talk about these areas because of their long life of service to community. Mrs. Loretta Pompey Jenkins is serving her second term as the non-partisan president of the local branch of Marion County NAACP She has served 30 years as a member of this organization. At the same time she held the position of elementary school principal in the Marion County School System and is now retired after a 33-year tenure. Her words reflected her experience in Florida as she talked about the audacity of the state government in its attempt to take away or suppress the right of the individual to vote. The right to vote is particularly sensitive to African Americans and very centralized in their world because of their struggles to obtain such a right. Another area of significance is the restoration of right of felons to vote. House Bill 1355 under the current Florida state government has made the restoration process more difficult. Yet, this right can be obtained by following the process which includes paying off all outstanding fines incurred and meeting conditions that are laid out. In other words try to restore your right it is too important to ignore. She mentioned that despite the fact that African Americans in New York and five other states owned property before emancipation and therefore could vote, no such right existed in the southern states. Since emancipation, the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendment of the U.S. constitution each played a role in ensuring this right to exslaves and their descendants. Again, the 1965 the Voting Right Act helped African Americans who were burdened by state laws, obtain the right to vote. It is therefore particularly difficult to see that in 2011 the state of Florida passed laws to suppress the right to vote for seniors, minority populations and our youth especially since these groups voted in record numbers in 2008. There has also been no major finding of voter fraud in Florida which was the reason given for setting up these barriers. Mrs. Jenkins stated that the NAACP and other organizations have come together to knock down barriers in states that are bent on suppression of votes by mobilizing teams to carry out specific actions that will enhance the ability of eligible voters to vote. Voters should do the following: Register to vote using the correct required process; take advantage of early voting (the ballot is lengthy and will take time so vote before Nov. 6); use the Souls to the Polls transportation strategy in churches; educate each other as about the items on the ballot so we are all educated voters; check out precinct changes with Supervisor of Elections Office which is very user friendly; use mail-in ballots and avoid the long wait (make sure to mail ballot early); be sure to sign and date ballot; vote the entire ballot including local and state issues; spread the word to all to go and vote; and be aware of important dates: Early voting begins Oct. 27 at specific precincts, last request for mail-in ballot Oct. 31, early voting ends Nov. 3, and Election Day Nov. 6. Mr. Whitfield Jenkins is currently Field Services Representative American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees. In his work tenure he received several honors for his service to the City of Ocala and from the Marion County Board of Commission, as well as Marion County Branch of the NAACP He and his wife are dedicated to serving Marion County communities and he too is concerned about voter suppression. There is a published Map of Shame that shows all the states involved in similar suppression laws as the ones in Florida, despite the lack of evidence of voter fraud in these states. (Contact NAACP 352-351-4560 for more information on map). Mr. Jenkins gave a nonpartisan explanation of the Amendments to the Florida Constitution that will be on the November ballot in order to help speed up the process on election-day. Comments onFriday, November 2, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, November 2, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Iwas off to the airport on another trip. I started out early, arrived at the airport on time but when I arrived the plane had canceled and I had to apply for another plane. The next plane headed for my destination was about two hours away. This would in fact, make me miss my connecting flight. I suppose I ought to be grateful that I was able to catch a later flight. It gave me some time to sit in the airport with nothing to do but think. Talk about a boring afternoon! One of the things I thought about was never flying again. But, necessity is the mother of inconvenience, or something like that. While I was thinking in the airport, I thought of a wise old man who, waxing philosophical, once said, Time waits for no man. I know he was wise because he did not include women in his observation. Although time will wait for no man, it has a different approach to women. Usually speaking, a man welcomes the passing of time. Proudly he displays those wrinkles and calluses as marks of manhood. Until recently, gray hair was a crown of authority. Even Solomon, the wisest man said, The hoary [gray] head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness (Proverbs 16:31 KJV). The grayer the head, the wiser the man. Although, I must confess I have seen my share of dumb grayheaded men. A woman, however, has an altogether different philosophy when it comes to time. As a man with gray hair, I do not fully understand their philosophy. I suppose there are some men who would like to be 25 again. Most men, however, are happy to be as old as they are. Women are different. They live upon the concept of ageless beauty. Who am I, as a man, to counter that philosophy? I discovered this many years ago. A woman casually asked me how old I thought she was. I have long since discovered that this is no casual question and she is not looking for exact information. I, at the time, took it as a challenge and tried to guess her age. Wrong! I have since learned that the correct response to this question is, Why, you dont look a day over 25. I do not know exactly what that means, but I have often gotten smiles from this response. No matter how old the woman is, in her mind she is still 25. The man has a different idea. Im 60, he will boast to whoever will listen, and I can still do a whole days work. Then he will go out and throw his back out just to prove it. Time has a different effect upon a man as it does upon a woman. There is nothing wrong with trying to look younger. I suppose it is an easier task to do if you are a woman than if you are a man. Every morning before I leave the house I try to make myself as non-scary to the public as I possibly can. I will scrape my face, pat down my hair, and douse myself with aftershave and in 10 minutes I am done and ready for the world. I have noticed that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage takes a lot longer than 10 minutes to get ready to face the world. I must admit she does a very good job of it, but I also must admit it takes a long time and it seems each year it gets longer. I do not want to call attention to myself. I just want to get through the day and back home again. I know I am not as young as I used to be but I take consolation in the fact that I am older than I used to be. And hand in hand with good old Father Time, I have walked down the wonderful timeline. For me personally, I like to celebrate each birthday as a once-in-a-lifetime celebration. My goal in life is to get as old as I possibly can and with the good help of Father Time, I am well on my way. Time has not stood still for me, for which I am most thankful. Just like getting to the airport on time for my flight, I want to be on time for everything happening in my life. I do not want to miss a thing. Too often people look backward, stumble over today, find themselves in tomorrow and do not know how they got there. I want to enjoy the time I have in real time. There is no time like the present to enjoy. Memories are wonderful. Aspirations are delightful. But, nothing can take the place of right now. The Bible has a lot to say about time. We are in a timeline established by God and it will not slow down into we come to the end. The apostle Paul understood this when he wrote, And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed (Romans 13:11 KJV). There is no time like the present that as someone said, This is the first day of the rest of my life. I am going to celebrate my Now with all the energy I have.Rev. James L.

Friday, November 2, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, November 2, 2012 www.smcitizen.com On a recent vacation to Hendersonville, North Carolina, I happened to wander inside a gift shop on Main Street. Always my favorite activity, I love to browse and shmooze around gift shops just to discover new and different items to bring back home. On this particular trip, I came across a rather interesting article in the jewelry section of the store. Staring right at me in gleaming silver, was a hamsa, a Jewish good luck charm and in all places to find one! A hamsa is a popular talisman that probably originated in the Middle East and is worn by Jewish and Muslim followers as a protection against the Evil Eye. The charm looks like an outstretched hand with three fingers pointing upward with the pinky and thumb lying in a straight line across from each other in the same size. The palm of the hand frequently has an eye design in the middle and the word mazel or luck is often inscribed as well. The talisman can be worked in any material but silver or gold are common materials. The eye part of the charm can have a real or simulated jewel. The charm can be put on a keychain or necklace or made into any number of objects such as jewelry or small gift items as scarves or bookmarks or decorative items for the home. The symbolism attached to the hamsa is open to interpretation. The word hamsa comes from the Hebrew word, hamesh which means five. In this case, it refers to the Five Books of Moses or the Torah. (It could just as well refer to the five fingers of the hand, which could stand for the hand of God.) It is sometimes called the hand of Miriam, after Moses sister. The eye part of the talisman, is supposed to offer protection from the Evil Eye. This old superstition has to do with people who cast a malevolent glance at others and cause them evil especially in the midst of celebration of good fortune. To this day, Jews will add the phrase kenenhora that the Evil Eye that unintentionally may be cast is in no way to be intended for evil or misfortune. Its another way of not jinxing something that is about to happen. It was also believed that some people had a predisposition towards being able to cast an evil eye but the rabbis frowned on this idea. In Islam, the number five stands for the five pillars of the faith and the hand becomes the hand of Fatima, one of Mohammeds daughters. The charm predates both religions but both Jews and Muslims often share Middle Eastern culture. Jews living in Arab lands often adopted the customs of the countries they lived in and the hamsa was popular in Yemen where it was brought to Israel and later to the U.S. The great Jewish philosopher, Maimonides, considered the hamsa and other superstitions to be against Jewish theology which holds that God is in charge of the universe and that it is futile for humans to go against the will of God by using supernatural means. Even so, talismans and charms were popular in folk culture. While I dont ascribe any significance to my hamsa, it is fun to wear even if I dont believe that it offers any protection against evil. Still it doesnt hurt to have a little extra luck these days and a whole handful is even better!

You see, in Back to Blood the author attempts to define the South Florida metropolis as he defined New York in The Bonfire of the Vanities. But in place of the latters secrets and lies we have excess, excess, excess. A smorgasbord of characters course through the novel: a social-climbing sex-addiction psychiatrist, his young Cuban-American nurse, a Russian art forger, a light-skinned, color-conscious Haitian professor, an ambitious WASP Miami Herald reporter, and the protagonistOfficer Nestor Camacho. In the opening pages of the book Editor-in-Chief of the Miami Herald Edward Topping 1V and his Anglo wife Mac have just arrived at a black tie event when in the parking lot a chic, young Cuban woman in her Ferrari 403 shoots into the very spot Mac was aiming for. Fireworks explode. As Mac berates the beautiful young woman for her rudeness, the young woman spouts a stream of invective entirely in Spanish. Mac screams, Speak English, you pathetic idiot. Youre in America now. Speak English. To which the young Cuban snorts. We een Mee-ah-mee now! You een Mee-ah-mee now! About this hopeless clash of cultures a character will later say, If you really want to understand Miami you got to realize one thing first of all. In Miami everybody hates everybody. The plot revolves around Nestors first exploit. As a member of the Marine Patrol hes ordered to bring down a young illegal Cuban immigrant clinging to the mast of a ship. Nestor obliges, scaling a A chaotic new novel penned by Tom Wolfe BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington rope, muscles bulging, his perfect physique visible to all those gaping from the Rickenbacker Causeway. In following orders, though, he cheats the immigrant of a foot on dry land that would have bought him freedom. Though his fellow officers praise him, his family and Hialeah neighbors vilify him, calling him a traitor. Nestor, however, will eventually cover himself in glory. This is far from a restful read. In fact, the frantic pace, the shrieking all caps, and bizarre happenings are exhausting. Wolfe has written brilliant novels he can be proud of. This is not one of them.

Max Loffgren chose to pay tribute to those Americans who are still in Vietnam. His 1955 Chevy dragster is adorned with the names of 3,578 POW/MIA. Loffgren served in the Americal Division in Vietnam from 1969-1970. He is a retired firefighter in Napa, California who has taken to the racing circuit.

At 18 years of age, Bill enlisted in the National Guard. He served six years working with explosives; communications; artillery and finally as a medic. Also during this time one of the most important events of his life took place. A friend of Lorraines father was visiting their home when he looked down at his watch and said, Ive got to go pick up Bill from the Armory. Lorraine, do you want to come along for the ride? She said, Sure, why not, and that meeting changed Bill and Lorraines life forever. Two months after meeting and their first date, they were married. At this time, Bill was an apprentice carpenter and was making up for lost time in his youth. He obtained his G.E.D. and would graduate from Quinsigamen Community College with a degree in engineering. He has spent his entire life continuing his education studying everything from music to Locksmith. Bill and Lorraine have three children. David lives in New York and a daughter, Robin lives in Massachusetts. Their youngest, Shawn, lives in Ocala and is the principal reason for their moving to this area. Well, there was the snow and ice of the North that had something to do with their decision also. In addition to the three children they had of their own, tragically Lorraines sister passed away leaving three children behind. Opening their hearts and their home, Lorraine and Bill took in their sisters young ones and gave them all the security and love of a family. When asked how he managed to support so many while Lorraine was a full time mom to six, Bill smiled softly and said, Working three jobs at a time. Neither Lorraine nor Bill is a stranger to hard work. When the children got older, Lorraine went to work outside the home. She started off making computer boards for the Sylvania/Honeywell Corporation and when she was done, she had worked her way up to supervisor of the department. During this time, Bill built their home in Berlin, Massachusetts so there would be enough room for everyone. Always seeking to learn new skills, Bill worked as a technical supervisor for Aerotech Corporation, a subdivision of ADT Alarms. He was in charge of quality control for all ultrasonic; microwave and infrared systems. Later in his career Bill would start his own printing business and ran that for several years. After that, he went into the mini invasive surgical equipment field with Vista Medical Technologies in Westboro. After moving to Florida, Bill, not one to sit still, took on the duties of a correctional assistant with the Marion County Sheriffs Office. Serving in the Jail division he worked his way up to being clerk of the law library. He just laughs when he speaks of his experiences in that job. For less than a year, Lorraine and Bill have been living in Cherrywood. They are very active taking part in such activities as the bowling league; Visitation Committee; Song Birds; Bocce Ball and Trivia Nights. Both are members of the Veterans Club and Lorraine enjoys playing dominoes. They thoroughly enjoy their children; 10 grandchildren and 4 great grand children. Married for just over fifty years, Bill and Lorraine both credit their religious beliefs for being able to overcome the many trials and hardships of life. They rejoice in their faith in Jesus and credit him with all they have been able to accomplish. Both Lorraine and Bill are very private individuals and were reluctant to share their triumphs and difficulties with your humble correspondent. They did allow me the warm hospitality of their home however and with some urging, shared their life experiences with me. We are fortunate indeed to have them as part of our Cherrywood community and they have made great contributions to our activities and life style. If you have not met them, I invite you to join Bill and Lorraine for our Karaoke Night on Nov. 9 when Bill will be our DJ or on Veterans Day celebration when he will be our sound technician. You will enjoy getting to know this unique, caring and sharing couple. They are two more reasons why Cherrywood is a great place to live. From Your ReporterNext week in the Spotlight on Excellence look forward to a special article on Veterans Day by guest correspondent Fred OHern. Fred is a retired Chief Master Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force and past president of the Veterans Club. I would like to apologize to Colonel Tom Currie; our upcoming Guest Speaker for the Veterans Day Observance. In last weeks paper I listed him as Lieutenant Colonel. This was an error on my part.

The day of reckoning is approaching. The battles are nearing an end as the two combatants make their final appeals right up to Tuesday, Nov. 6. Now, take some time to relax. Lean back on your rocking chair or recliner and enjoy some political humor regardless of your inclination.DebatableBefore the first presidential debate there was a coin toss to see which candidate would speak first. There was an awkward moment just before the coin toss when Romney asked, Whats that shiny little disk youre holding? Watching the debates is a lot like football, particularly the New York Jets. Tebow is like Romney, almost surely disappointing if he gets in. And Obamas like Sanchez, already in there and disappointing us right now. The first debate lasted 90 minutes. Afterward, President Obama got back to his hotel room at precisely 9:45 p.m. He knew it because Mitt Romney had just cleaned his clock. For many Americans, a presidential debate is like a NASCAR race; they only tune in to see the potential wrecks Private sources say that President Obama blamed George W. Bush for the first debate. Congratulations to Mitt Romney and President Obama. They both won Emmys for their debate performances. Obama won for acting as if everything has gotten better over the last four years, and Romney won for pretending to care about that other 47 percent. Election commentsNew polling shows President Obama has a 10-point lead in Mitt Romneys home state of Michigan. Although in Obamas home state of Hawaii, Romney has a 10-house lead. Paul Ryan now says that President Obamas foreign policy has blown up in his face and its time to go back to the Republican foreign policy. Well, lets see, Obama kept Guantanamo Bay open, the troops are still overseas, and the Middle East hates us. Isnt that the Republican foreign policy? If Bain Capital were running Romneys campaign, theyd fire everybody, close it down and hire some Chinese guy to do it cheaper and better. I keep seeing ads asking me to Join Michelle, and tell Barack youre in! OK, Im in all right bankruptcy, unemployment, and despair. A new survey found that over 35 percent of Americans actually plan on voting before Election Day. Not for president of the United States, just for Dancing With the Stars. Mitt Romneys California garbage man criticizes Romneys 47 percent comments in a new video. The Romney campaign dismissed the video as just trash talking. At a recent concert, Madonna told the audience she would strip naked if President Obama is reelected. In a related story, President Obama is now trailing in the polls by 97 percent. A poll says that 39 percent of Americans say the government should do more to solve the nations problems. The other 61 percent say it would be better if they did less to cause any more problems.QuipsTo understand politics, we must read between the lies. The more you observe politics, the more youve got to admit that each party is worse than the other. Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated. No one party can fool all of the people all of the time; thats why we have two parties.Still the sameBack in the early days of TV a farmer decided to buy a television. The store assured him that they would install the antenna and TV the next day. When the farmer turned on his TV he found only political ads on every channel. The next morning he turned the TV on and found only political ads again. When he came in to eat lunch he tried the TV again, but still only found political ads. The next day when he still found only political ads he called the store to complain. The owner said that it was impossible for every channel to only have political ads, but agreed to send their repairman to check the TV. When the TV repairman turned on the TV he found that the farmer was right. After looking at the TV for a while he went outside to check the antenna. In a few minutes he returned and told the farmer he had found the problem. The antenna had been installed on top of the windmill and grounded to the manure spreader. Friday, November 2, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, November 2, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds The day of reckoning is approaching PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank Karaoke NightA night of fun entertainment is scheduled on Nov. 9 from 7 until 10 p.m. in the clubhouse. Bill Lavertue is going to crank up his extensive collection of music for all of the singers here at Cherrywood. Bring your own refreshments, liquid and otherwise; bring your friends and bring your list of favorite tunes then head on down to the clubhouse for a special night. Bill has more than 20,000 songs in his collection so you are sure to find one or two (dozen) that you like. You can sit back and enjoy the entertainment of your neighbors or you can jump in and take part. Maybe there are two or three friends that would like to join you in singing a favorite song or maybe you do your best being a soloist. No problem; Bill will accommodate every request. This promises to be one extremely fun time for participants and observers alike. You might be discovered; you might discover that your neighbor has more talent than you ever thought or you might just get a good laugh. No matter, its all in good fun and its all free. Come out for this unique entertainment experience and encourage your friends and neighbors.Camera ClubOn Friday, Nov. 2 at 10 a.m., the Shutterbugs Camera Club is holding a contest. Come out and bring your favorite picture that you have ever taken. The club members will judge all the photos and award a prize to the best one in their opinion. The only rule for the contest is that the photo has to have been taken by you personally and can be of any subject. The only qualification for membership is that you have an interest in photography. Well see you on Friday morning in the library of the clubhouse for an interesting and educational time. Raffle ticketsDont forget to buy your raffle tickets. Two gift baskets and a Welcome floral display are being raffled off by our Veterans Club on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. Tickets are only a dollar and will be available that day. Youll love these items so be sure to get your ticket.Election Day changesElection Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6. Our clubhouse is a polling place so for that reason all activities scheduled for the main area of the clubhouse have been cancelled. Pool, cards and the like that take place in the smaller rooms are still on. Due to the conflict of dates, the swimming pool will be closed on Nov. 7 instead of the 6th and Movie Night will be on Nov. 7 instead of the first Tuesday of the month. Everyone is encouraged to get out and vote on Tuesday, Nov. 6.Blood DriveDonors are badly needed for our Blood Drive coming up on Nov. 9 from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. Health care professionals will get you in and out of the Big Red Bus quickly and easily so it wont take you much time at all to give the gift of life. Because we no longer have a full time volunteer, Cherrywood blood donations are down from their usual amount so please be there and donate on Friday the 9th.Tree TrimmingEvery year the residents of Cherrywood get together for a Christmas Tree Trimming party at the clubhouse. On an ornament, they put their name and the year they moved into Cherrywood and each year, these are placed on our Christmas tree. This year, the party is on Dec. 2 and starts at 6 p.m. Everyone brings a dish to pass around and with the music and fellowship, the Christmas spirit throughout the neighborhood. Mark your calendars and plan to be there for this special day.Cribbage players wantedIf you play cribbage or have ever wanted to learn how to play cribbage, we have a place for you. Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. in the card room our Cribbage Club gets together for their weekly games. If you are an accomplished player or if you just want to learn, this is the place for you. Strong competition or patient teaching and everything in between are part of this clubs program. Dont be shy; come out and join in with this fun group.Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature residents of Cherrywood who have an interesting past; a promising future or who have made a significant contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week we highlight two relative newcomers to our neighborhood, Lorraine and Bill Lavertue. Born in Stoneham, Massachusetts, Lorraine was the youngest of six children. Her father was an evangelist so they traveled all over the country. Throughout her childhood she spent time in many different states and cities finally settling when her dad was posted at a Church in Waltham, Massachusetts. Bill was born and raised in Lawrence, Massachusetts. He was the older of two sons raised by his single mother. While his mom worked at a local mission, Bill began working at the age of 7 to help support the family. His first job was working for a man named Sam Woo Chong who owned an import produce business. The town was relatively small, less than six square miles, and Bill would deliver the produce to various restaurants and markets in the area. For six years he did that work helping his family make ends meet. At the ripe old age of 13 he began working for Lee Wee Long who owned a laundry and dry cleaning business. Bill operated five pressing machines at a time making 65 cents an hour. He did all of this until the age of 15 when the state stepped in and enforced the child labor laws. After receiving his working papers, Bill got a job working in a shoe repair shop. He started at $48 a week and worked his way up to $120 a week, learning every facet of the cobbler trade. School was not really an option for Bill during his youth. Working and putting food on the table and covering the living expenses for his family were much more pressing necessities than learning about life from a book. With only an eighth grade education he was denied a promotion in the shoe shop because he had no high school diploma.

Originally it marked the end of the First World War and was called Armistice Day. In 1954, following World War II and Korea, at the urging of veterans organizations, the name of the day was changed from Armistice to Veterans. The Cherrywood Veterans Club will honor all veterans at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 with a service in front of the clubhouse. We welcome everyone from not only our community but the greater Southwest Marion County area as we pause to honor the service and sacrifice of those who serve our nation. Our guest speaker will be Colonel Tom P. Currie Junior (Ret). Colonel Currie is a graduate of the USAF Academy and began his career as a combat rescue pilot. Later he went on to being a test pilot and eventually became Commander of the 46th Test Group stationed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico. The 46th led the way in cutting edge technologies and development was liaison for the entire Air Force testing and training programs. We are honored to have him as our guest speaker. Our ceremony will include our Honor Guard presenting the Colors; a Salute to the Armed Forces; recognition of survivors and Taps. Please make every effort to attend this special service. Immediately following the service, the Veterans Club will host a picnic with old fashioned hamburgers and hot dogs and trimmings.

Trivia Contest nightOn Nov. 21, Trivia Night will be back in full swing at Cherrywood. At 6 p.m., Fred and Jay OHern will light up the big screen with questions for our eager teams to answer; glasses will clink; snacks will be munched and the excitement will build. Each three or four person team will be scratching their heads; tapping their feet; slapping their foreheads and laughing their socks off when at the end of the contest the answers are finally revealed. The lucky winning teams will get bragging rights for a month and maybe even a couple of bucks in their pockets. Win or lose, everyone will have a good time, thats for sure. Trivia only costs a dollar per person to play and the proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Fund. If youve never been, you have to come out and try it. Even if you dont have a team of three or four, come on down to the clubhouse and youll be assigned a group to play with. As always, beverages and snacks of your choice are welcome. Dont miss this great night of fun and laughter; mental challenge and camaraderie. Oh, the subject for November? Thanksgiving of course. Note: Next month we have a guest quizmaster.

Originally it marked the end of the First World War and was called Armistice Day. In 1954, following World War II and Korea, at the urging of veterans organizations, the name of the day was changed from Armistice to Veterans. The Cherrywood Veterans Club will honor all veterans at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 with a service in front of the clubhouse. We welcome everyone from not only our community but the greater Southwest Marion County area as we pause to honor the service and sacrifice of those who serve our nation. Our guest speaker will be Colonel Tom P. Currie Junior (Ret). Colonel Currie is a graduate of the USAF Academy and began his career as a combat rescue pilot. Later he went on to being a test pilot and eventually became Commander of the 46th Test Group stationed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico. The 46th led the way in cutting edge technologies and development was liaison for the entire Air Force testing and training programs. We are honored to have him as our guest speaker. Our ceremony will include our Honor Guard presenting the Colors; a Salute to the Armed Forces; recognition of survivors and Taps. Please make every effort to attend this special service. Immediately following the service, the Veterans Club will host a picnic with old fashioned hamburgers and hot dogs and trimmings. Tickets for the picnic are mandatory and cost $7 each so be sure to see Geri and get your tickets in advance of Veterans Day. We dont want anyone left out of this observance and celebration. Trivia Contest nightOn Nov. 21, Trivia Night will be back in full swing at Cherrywood. At 6 p.m., Fred and Jay OHern will light up the big screen with questions for our eager teams to answer; glasses will clink; snacks will be munched and the excitement will build. Each three or four person team will be scratching their heads; tapping their feet; slapping their foreheads and laughing their socks off when at the end of the contest the answers are finally revealed. The lucky winning teams will get bragging rights for a month and maybe even a couple of bucks in their pockets. Win or lose, everyone will have a good time, thats for sure. Trivia only costs a dollar per person to play and the proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Fund. If youve never been, you have to come out and try it. Even if you dont have a team of three or four, come on down to the clubhouse and youll be assigned a group to play with. As always, beverages and snacks of your choice are welcome. Dont miss this great night of fun and laughter; mental challenge and camaraderie. Oh, the subject for November? Thanksgiving of course. Note: Next month we have a guest quizmaster. I cant tell you who it is but her initials are D. J. The topic for December, what else, Christmas. SEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE20 000CZMY FLORIDA ADVANCED PULMONARY, P.A.

The day of reckoning is approaching. The battles are nearing an end as the two combatants make their final appeals right up to Tuesday, Nov. 6. Now, take some time to relax. Lean back on your rocking chair or recliner and enjoy some political humor regardless of your inclination.DebatableBefore the first presidential debate there was a coin toss to see which candidate would speak first. There was an awkward moment just before the coin toss when Romney asked, Whats that shiny little disk youre holding? Watching the debates is a lot like football, particularly the New York Jets. Tebow is like Romney, almost surely disappointing if he gets in. And Obamas like Sanchez, already in there and disappointing us right now. The first debate lasted 90 minutes. Afterward, President Obama got back to his hotel room at precisely 9:45 p.m. He knew it because Mitt Romney had just cleaned his clock. For many Americans, a presidential debate is like a NASCAR race; they only tune in to see the potential wrecks Private sources say that President Obama blamed George W. Bush for the first debate. Congratulations to Mitt Romney and President Obama. They both won Emmys for their debate performances. Obama won for acting as if everything has gotten better over the last four years, and Romney won for pretending to care about that other 47 percent. Election commentsNew polling shows President Obama has a 10-point lead in Mitt Romneys home state of Michigan. Although in Obamas home state of Hawaii, Romney has a 10-house lead. Paul Ryan now says that President Obamas foreign policy has blown up in his face and its time to go back to the Republican foreign policy. Well, lets see, Obama kept Guantanamo Bay open, the troops are still overseas, and the Middle East hates us. Isnt that the Republican foreign policy? If Bain Capital were running Romneys campaign, theyd fire everybody, close it down and hire some Chinese guy to do it cheaper and better. I keep seeing ads asking me to Join Michelle, and tell Barack youre in! OK, Im in all right bankruptcy, unemployment, and despair. A new survey found that over 35 percent of Americans actually plan on voting before Election Day. Not for president of the United States, just for Dancing With the Stars. Mitt Romneys California garbage man criticizes Romneys 47 percent comments in a new video. The Romney campaign dismissed the video as just trash talking. At a recent concert, Madonna told the audience she would strip naked if President Obama is reelected. In a related story, President Obama is now trailing in the polls by 97 percent. A poll says that 39 percent of Americans say the government should do more to solve the nations problems. The other 61 percent say it would be better if they did less to cause any more problems.QuipsTo understand politics, we must read between the lies. The more you observe politics, the more youve got to admit that each party is worse than the other. Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated. No one party can fool all of the people all of the time; thats why we have two parties.Still the sameBack in the early days of TV a farmer decided to buy a television. The store assured him that they would install the antenna and TV the next day. When the farmer turned on his TV he found only political ads on every channel. The next morning he turned the TV on and found only political ads again. When he came in to eat lunch he tried the TV again, but still only found political ads. The next day when he still found only political ads he called the store to complain. The owner said that it was impossible for every channel to only have political ads, but agreed to send their repairman to check the TV. When the TV repairman turned on the TV he found that the farmer was right. After looking at the TV for a while he went outside to check the antenna. In a few minutes he returned and told the farmer he had found the problem. The antenna had been installed on top of the windmill and grounded to the manure spreader. Friday, November 2, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, November 2, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds The day of reckoning is approaching PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank Karaoke NightA night of fun entertainment is scheduled on Nov. 9 from 7 until 10 p.m. in the clubhouse. Bill Lavertue is going to crank up his extensive collection of music for all of the singers here at Cherrywood. Bring your own refreshments, liquid and otherwise; bring your friends and bring your list of favorite tunes then head on down to the clubhouse for a special night. Bill has more than 20,000 songs in his collection so you are sure to find one or two (dozen) that you like. You can sit back and enjoy the entertainment of your neighbors or you can jump in and take part. Maybe there are two or three friends that would like to join you in singing a favorite song or maybe you do your best being a soloist. No problem; Bill will accommodate every request. This promises to be one extremely fun time for participants and observers alike. You might be discovered; you might discover that your neighbor has more talent than you ever thought or you might just get a good laugh. No matter, its all in good fun and its all free. Come out for this unique entertainment experience and encourage your friends and neighbors.Camera ClubOn Friday, Nov. 2 at 10 a.m., the Shutterbugs Camera Club is holding a contest. Come out and bring your favorite picture that you have ever taken. The club members will judge all the photos and award a prize to the best one in their opinion. The only rule for the contest is that the photo has to have been taken by you personally and can be of any subject. The only qualification for membership is that you have an interest in photography. Well see you on Friday morning in the library of the clubhouse for an interesting and educational time. Raffle ticketsDont forget to buy your raffle tickets. Two gift baskets and a Welcome floral display are being raffled off by our Veterans Club on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. Tickets are only a dollar and will be available that day. Youll love these items so be sure to get your ticket.Election Day changesElection Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6. Our clubhouse is a polling place so for that reason all activities scheduled for the main area of the clubhouse have been cancelled. Pool, cards and the like that take place in the smaller rooms are still on. Due to the conflict of dates, the swimming pool will be closed on Nov. 7 instead of the 6th and Movie Night will be on Nov. 7 instead of the first Tuesday of the month. Everyone is encouraged to get out and vote on Tuesday, Nov. 6.Blood DriveDonors are badly needed for our Blood Drive coming up on Nov. 9 from 7:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. Health care professionals will get you in and out of the Big Red Bus quickly and easily so it wont take you much time at all to give the gift of life. Because we no longer have a full time volunteer, Cherrywood blood donations are down from their usual amount so please be there and donate on Friday the 9th.Tree TrimmingEvery year the residents of Cherrywood get together for a Christmas Tree Trimming party at the clubhouse. On an ornament, they put their name and the year they moved into Cherrywood and each year, these are placed on our Christmas tree. This year, the party is on Dec. 2 and starts at 6 p.m. Everyone brings a dish to pass around and with the music and fellowship, the Christmas spirit throughout the neighborhood. Mark your calendars and plan to be there for this special day.Cribbage players wantedIf you play cribbage or have ever wanted to learn how to play cribbage, we have a place for you. Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. in the card room our Cribbage Club gets together for their weekly games. If you are an accomplished player or if you just want to learn, this is the place for you. Strong competition or patient teaching and everything in between are part of this clubs program. Dont be shy; come out and join in with this fun group.Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature residents of Cherrywood who have an interesting past; a promising future or who have made a significant contribution to the quality of life in our community. This week we highlight two relative newcomers to our neighborhood, Lorraine and Bill Lavertue. Born in Stoneham, Massachusetts, Lorraine was the youngest of six children. Her father was an evangelist so they traveled all over the country. Throughout her childhood she spent time in many different states and cities finally settling when her dad was posted at a Church in Waltham, Massachusetts. Bill was born and raised in Lawrence, Massachusetts. He was the older of two sons raised by his single mother. While his mom worked at a local mission, Bill began working at the age of 7 to help support the family. His first job was working for a man named Sam Woo Chong who owned an import produce business. The town was relatively small, less than six square miles, and Bill would deliver the produce to various restaurants and markets in the area. For six years he did that work helping his family make ends meet. At the ripe old age of 13 he began working for Lee Wee Long who owned a laundry and dry cleaning business. Bill operated five pressing machines at a time making 65 cents an hour. He did all of this until the age of 15 when the state stepped in and enforced the child labor laws. After receiving his working papers, Bill got a job working in a shoe repair shop. He started at $48 a week and worked his way up to $120 a week, learning every facet of the cobbler trade. School was not really an option for Bill during his youth. Working and putting food on the table and covering the living expenses for his family were much more pressing necessities than learning about life from a book. With only an eighth grade education he was denied a promotion in the shoe shop because he had no high school diploma.

Max Loffgren chose to pay tribute to those Americans who are still in Vietnam. His 1955 Chevy dragster is adorned with the names of 3,578 POW/MIA. Loffgren served in the Americal Division in Vietnam from 1969-1970. He is a retired firefighter in Napa, California who has taken to the racing circuit. "The car speaks for itself...people understand it." His goal is to use the car more to educate than to race. "This is for those guys and their families." Loffgren also assists veterans with referrals for veteran benefits and has memorabilia of POW.MIA items for sale. Artists, Aiyana, Anita Anderson, Ronald K Aselton, Julius Chirieleison, Gail DeCorsica, Don Good, Joseph G. Hare, Dustin B. Huff, Kyle Johnson, Barbara Jones, Diana Lee Harris, Linda Lee Krebs, and Terry Riley utilize the wall space in the eatery as a galley for their art that includes an artistic salute to veterans. There is no cost for the event. Donna Cuppels and her husband, Earl, owners of Eggs Over Easy, offer a 10 percent discount on total bill honored for all veterans. Salute Belgium waffles will be featured all day. Eggs Over Easy is at 5855 S.E. Fifth St. at Baseline Road, Ocala. Hours: 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. every day, until 4 p.m. on Nov. 5 only. At 18 years of age, Bill enlisted in the National Guard. He served six years working with explosives; communications; artillery and finally as a medic. Also during this time one of the most important events of his life took place. A friend of Lorraines father was visiting their home when he looked down at his watch and said, Ive got to go pick up Bill from the Armory. Lorraine, do you want to come along for the ride? She said, Sure, why not, and that meeting changed Bill and Lorraines life forever. Two months after meeting and their first date, they were married. At this time, Bill was an apprentice carpenter and was making up for lost time in his youth. He obtained his G.E.D. and would graduate from Quinsigamen Community College with a degree in engineering. He has spent his entire life continuing his education studying everything from music to Locksmith. Bill and Lorraine have three children. David lives in New York and a daughter, Robin lives in Massachusetts. Their youngest, Shawn, lives in Ocala and is the principal reason for their moving to this area. Well, there was the snow and ice of the North that had something to do with their decision also. In addition to the three children they had of their own, tragically Lorraines sister passed away leaving three children behind. Opening their hearts and their home, Lorraine and Bill took in their sisters young ones and gave them all the security and love of a family. When asked how he managed to support so many while Lorraine was a full time mom to six, Bill smiled softly and said, Working three jobs at a time. Neither Lorraine nor Bill is a stranger to hard work. When the children got older, Lorraine went to work outside the home. She started off making computer boards for the Sylvania/Honeywell Corporation and when she was done, she had worked her way up to supervisor of the department. During this time, Bill built their home in Berlin, Massachusetts so there would be enough room for everyone. Always seeking to learn new skills, Bill worked as a technical supervisor for Aerotech Corporation, a subdivision of ADT Alarms. He was in charge of quality control for all ultrasonic; microwave and infrared systems. Later in his career Bill would start his own printing business and ran that for several years. After that, he went into the mini invasive surgical equipment field with Vista Medical Technologies in Westboro. After moving to Florida, Bill, not one to sit still, took on the duties of a correctional assistant with the Marion County Sheriffs Office. Serving in the Jail division he worked his way up to being clerk of the law library. He just laughs when he speaks of his experiences in that job. For less than a year, Lorraine and Bill have been living in Cherrywood. They are very active taking part in such activities as the bowling league; Visitation Committee; Song Birds; Bocce Ball and Trivia Nights. Both are members of the Veterans Club and Lorraine enjoys playing dominoes. They thoroughly enjoy their children; 10 grandchildren and 4 great grand children. Married for just over fifty years, Bill and Lorraine both credit their religious beliefs for being able to overcome the many trials and hardships of life. They rejoice in their faith in Jesus and credit him with all they have been able to accomplish. Both Lorraine and Bill are very private individuals and were reluctant to share their triumphs and difficulties with your humble correspondent. They did allow me the warm hospitality of their home however and with some urging, shared their life experiences with me. We are fortunate indeed to have them as part of our Cherrywood community and they have made great contributions to our activities and life style. If you have not met them, I invite you to join Bill and Lorraine for our Karaoke Night on Nov. 9 when Bill will be our DJ or on Veterans Day celebration when he will be our sound technician. You will enjoy getting to know this unique, caring and sharing couple. They are two more reasons why Cherrywood is a great place to live. From Your ReporterNext week in the Spotlight on Excellence look forward to a special article on Veterans Day by guest correspondent Fred OHern. Fred is a retired Chief Master Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force and past president of the Veterans Club. I would like to apologize to Colonel Tom Currie; our upcoming Guest Speaker for the Veterans Day Observance. In last weeks paper I listed him as Lieutenant Colonel. This was an error on my part.

Friday, November 2, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, November 2, 2012 www.smcitizen.com On a recent vacation to Hendersonville, North Carolina, I happened to wander inside a gift shop on Main Street. Always my favorite activity, I love to browse and shmooze around gift shops just to discover new and different items to bring back home. On this particular trip, I came across a rather interesting article in the jewelry section of the store. Staring right at me in gleaming silver, was a hamsa, a Jewish good luck charm and in all places to find one! A hamsa is a popular talisman that probably originated in the Middle East and is worn by Jewish and Muslim followers as a protection against the Evil Eye. The charm looks like an outstretched hand with three fingers pointing upward with the pinky and thumb lying in a straight line across from each other in the same size. The palm of the hand frequently has an eye design in the middle and the word mazel or luck is often inscribed as well. The talisman can be worked in any material but silver or gold are common materials. The eye part of the charm can have a real or simulated jewel. The charm can be put on a keychain or necklace or made into any number of objects such as jewelry or small gift items as scarves or bookmarks or decorative items for the home. The symbolism attached to the hamsa is open to interpretation. The word hamsa comes from the Hebrew word, hamesh which means five. In this case, it refers to the Five Books of Moses or the Torah. (It could just as well refer to the five fingers of the hand, which could stand for the hand of God.) It is sometimes called the hand of Miriam, after Moses sister. The eye part of the talisman, is supposed to offer protection from the Evil Eye. This old superstition has to do with people who cast a malevolent glance at others and cause them evil especially in the midst of celebration of good fortune. To this day, Jews will add the phrase kenenhora that the Evil Eye that unintentionally may be cast is in no way to be intended for evil or misfortune. Its another way of not jinxing something that is about to happen. It was also believed that some people had a predisposition towards being able to cast an evil eye but the rabbis frowned on this idea. In Islam, the number five stands for the five pillars of the faith and the hand becomes the hand of Fatima, one of Mohammeds daughters. The charm predates both religions but both Jews and Muslims often share Middle Eastern culture. Jews living in Arab lands often adopted the customs of the countries they lived in and the hamsa was popular in Yemen where it was brought to Israel and later to the U.S. The great Jewish philosopher, Maimonides, considered the hamsa and other superstitions to be against Jewish theology which holds that God is in charge of the universe and that it is futile for humans to go against the will of God by using supernatural means. Even so, talismans and charms were popular in folk culture. While I dont ascribe any significance to my hamsa, it is fun to wear even if I dont believe that it offers any protection against evil. Still it doesnt hurt to have a little extra luck these days and a whole handful is even better!

You see, in Back to Blood the author attempts to define the South Florida metropolis as he defined New York in The Bonfire of the Vanities. But in place of the latters secrets and lies we have excess, excess, excess. A smorgasbord of characters course through the novel: a social-climbing sex-addiction psychiatrist, his young Cuban-American nurse, a Russian art forger, a light-skinned, color-conscious Haitian professor, an ambitious WASP Miami Herald reporter, and the protagonistOfficer Nestor Camacho. In the opening pages of the book Editor-in-Chief of the Miami Herald Edward Topping 1V and his Anglo wife Mac have just arrived at a black tie event when in the parking lot a chic, young Cuban woman in her Ferrari 403 shoots into the very spot Mac was aiming for. Fireworks explode. As Mac berates the beautiful young woman for her rudeness, the young woman spouts a stream of invective entirely in Spanish. Mac screams, Speak English, you pathetic idiot. Youre in America now. Speak English. To which the young Cuban snorts. We een Mee-ah-mee now! You een Mee-ah-mee now! About this hopeless clash of cultures a character will later say, If you really want to understand Miami you got to realize one thing first of all. In Miami everybody hates everybody. The plot revolves around Nestors first exploit. As a member of the Marine Patrol hes ordered to bring down a young illegal Cuban immigrant clinging to the mast of a ship. Nestor obliges, scaling a A chaotic new novel penned by Tom Wolfe BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington rope, muscles bulging, his perfect physique visible to all those gaping from the Rickenbacker Causeway. In following orders, though, he cheats the immigrant of a foot on dry land that would have bought him freedom. Though his fellow officers praise him, his family and Hialeah neighbors vilify him, calling him a traitor. Nestor, however, will eventually cover himself in glory. This is far from a restful read. In fact, the frantic pace, the shrieking all caps, and bizarre happenings are exhausting. Wolfe has written brilliant novels he can be proud of. This is not one of them.

BY ENID B. JONES Special to the CitizenThe next meeting of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club will be Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. at Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. In keeping with the excitement of the approaching election, our September meeting focused on the voting process and the November ballot in Florida. The topics for the discussion at this meeting were the amendments that will be on the ballot in November and restoring civil rights at a time when voter rights are being challenged in Florida. Our guest speakers, Mr. and Mrs. Whitfield Jenkins, were uniquely qualified to talk about these areas because of their long life of service to community. Mrs. Loretta Pompey Jenkins is serving her second term as the non-partisan president of the local branch of Marion County NAACP She has served 30 years as a member of this organization. At the same time she held the position of elementary school principal in the Marion County School System and is now retired after a 33-year tenure. Her words reflected her experience in Florida as she talked about the audacity of the state government in its attempt to take away or suppress the right of the individual to vote. The right to vote is particularly sensitive to African Americans and very centralized in their world because of their struggles to obtain such a right. Another area of significance is the restoration of right of felons to vote. House Bill 1355 under the current Florida state government has made the restoration process more difficult. Yet, this right can be obtained by following the process which includes paying off all outstanding fines incurred and meeting conditions that are laid out. In other words try to restore your right it is too important to ignore. She mentioned that despite the fact that African Americans in New York and five other states owned property before emancipation and therefore could vote, no such right existed in the southern states. Since emancipation, the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendment of the U.S. constitution each played a role in ensuring this right to exslaves and their descendants. Again, the 1965 the Voting Right Act helped African Americans who were burdened by state laws, obtain the right to vote. It is therefore particularly difficult to see that in 2011 the state of Florida passed laws to suppress the right to vote for seniors, minority populations and our youth especially since these groups voted in record numbers in 2008. There has also been no major finding of voter fraud in Florida which was the reason given for setting up these barriers. Mrs. Jenkins stated that the NAACP and other organizations have come together to knock down barriers in states that are bent on suppression of votes by mobilizing teams to carry out specific actions that will enhance the ability of eligible voters to vote. Voters should do the following: Register to vote using the correct required process; take advantage of early voting (the ballot is lengthy and will take time so vote before Nov. 6); use the Souls to the Polls transportation strategy in churches; educate each other as about the items on the ballot so we are all educated voters; check out precinct changes with Supervisor of Elections Office which is very user friendly; use mail-in ballots and avoid the long wait (make sure to mail ballot early); be sure to sign and date ballot; vote the entire ballot including local and state issues; spread the word to all to go and vote; and be aware of important dates: Early voting begins Oct. 27 at specific precincts, last request for mail-in ballot Oct. 31, early voting ends Nov. 3, and Election Day Nov. 6. Mr. Whitfield Jenkins is currently Field Services Representative American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees. In his work tenure he received several honors for his service to the City of Ocala and from the Marion County Board of Commission, as well as Marion County Branch of the NAACP He and his wife are dedicated to serving Marion County communities and he too is concerned about voter suppression. There is a published Map of Shame that shows all the states involved in similar suppression laws as the ones in Florida, despite the lack of evidence of voter fraud in these states. (Contact NAACP 352-351-4560 for more information on map). Mr. Jenkins gave a nonpartisan explanation of the Amendments to the Florida Constitution that will be on the November ballot in order to help speed up the process on election-day. Comments onFriday, November 2, 2012 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, November 2, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Iwas off to the airport on another trip. I started out early, arrived at the airport on time but when I arrived the plane had canceled and I had to apply for another plane. The next plane headed for my destination was about two hours away. This would in fact, make me miss my connecting flight. I suppose I ought to be grateful that I was able to catch a later flight. It gave me some time to sit in the airport with nothing to do but think. Talk about a boring afternoon! One of the things I thought about was never flying again. But, necessity is the mother of inconvenience, or something like that. While I was thinking in the airport, I thought of a wise old man who, waxing philosophical, once said, Time waits for no man. I know he was wise because he did not include women in his observation. Although time will wait for no man, it has a different approach to women. Usually speaking, a man welcomes the passing of time. Proudly he displays those wrinkles and calluses as marks of manhood. Until recently, gray hair was a crown of authority. Even Solomon, the wisest man said, The hoary [gray] head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness (Proverbs 16:31 KJV). The grayer the head, the wiser the man. Although, I must confess I have seen my share of dumb grayheaded men. A woman, however, has an altogether different philosophy when it comes to time. As a man with gray hair, I do not fully understand their philosophy. I suppose there are some men who would like to be 25 again. Most men, however, are happy to be as old as they are. Women are different. They live upon the concept of ageless beauty. Who am I, as a man, to counter that philosophy? I discovered this many years ago. A woman casually asked me how old I thought she was. I have long since discovered that this is no casual question and she is not looking for exact information. I, at the time, took it as a challenge and tried to guess her age. Wrong! I have since learned that the correct response to this question is, Why, you dont look a day over 25. I do not know exactly what that means, but I have often gotten smiles from this response. No matter how old the woman is, in her mind she is still 25. The man has a different idea. Im 60, he will boast to whoever will listen, and I can still do a whole days work. Then he will go out and throw his back out just to prove it. Time has a different effect upon a man as it does upon a woman. There is nothing wrong with trying to look younger. I suppose it is an easier task to do if you are a woman than if you are a man. Every morning before I leave the house I try to make myself as non-scary to the public as I possibly can. I will scrape my face, pat down my hair, and douse myself with aftershave and in 10 minutes I am done and ready for the world. I have noticed that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage takes a lot longer than 10 minutes to get ready to face the world. I must admit she does a very good job of it, but I also must admit it takes a long time and it seems each year it gets longer. I do not want to call attention to myself. I just want to get through the day and back home again. I know I am not as young as I used to be but I take consolation in the fact that I am older than I used to be. And hand in hand with good old Father Time, I have walked down the wonderful timeline. For me personally, I like to celebrate each birthday as a once-in-a-lifetime celebration. My goal in life is to get as old as I possibly can and with the good help of Father Time, I am well on my way. Time has not stood still for me, for which I am most thankful. Just like getting to the airport on time for my flight, I want to be on time for everything happening in my life. I do not want to miss a thing. Too often people look backward, stumble over today, find themselves in tomorrow and do not know how they got there. I want to enjoy the time I have in real time. There is no time like the present to enjoy. Memories are wonderful. Aspirations are delightful. But, nothing can take the place of right now. The Bible has a lot to say about time. We are in a timeline established by God and it will not slow down into we come to the end. The apostle Paul understood this when he wrote, And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed (Romans 13:11 KJV). There is no time like the present that as someone said, This is the first day of the rest of my life. I am going to celebrate my Now with all the energy I have.Rev. James L.

BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenIf we needed evidence of the impoverishment of American politics, the socalled debate between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney gave us all we could ask for. We normally expect a debate to highlight some disagreement, but in American politics disagreement is reserved for minor matters. The two parties actually the two divisions of the uniparty that represents the permanent regime agree on all fundamentals. If you need proof, observe how the establishment media treated Ron Paul, who challenged the permanent regimes basic premises on foreign policy, civil liberties, and monetary control. He dug too deep. Its been noted, mostly by humorists, that Romney continuously expressed his agreement with Obama across a range of issues: drone warfare, Iran, Afghanistan, even Iraq. He tried to manufacture differences by suggesting that he would have done more sooner. But this all sounded flaccid; Romney seemed desperate to draw some contrast with a foreign policy that he embraces. What does Romney really believe? Who can say? What we do know is that hes taking his foreign-policy advice from a team of neoconservatives, formerly of the George W. Bush administration, who helped dig the hole the country is in. Obama, for his part, defended his record, which someone other than Romney could have torn to shreds. Obama brags about ending the occupation of Iraq, yet he forgets that Bush had already signed an agreement, insisted on by the Iran-friendly Iraqi government, to get out by the end of 2011. What Obama wont tell you is that he begged Prime Minister Maliki to ask U.S. troops to remain. Thankfully, Maliki said no. Obama of course also mentioned the killing of Osama bin Laden. Two things about that: First, capture and trial would have been a better example for the world than summary execution by Navy SEALs. Second, the enfeebled bin Laden was a has-been by May 2011, having been kicked upstairs when he started devising impossible plots. He was no threat to the American people. Someone other than Romney might have pointed out that Obamas policy has helped to spread al-Qaedas influence beyond Afghanistan and Iraq. Thanks to the presidents drone warfare which regularly murders innocents and other interventions, there are now al-Qaeda affiliates or sympathizers in Libya, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Mali, and elsewhere. But Romney cant point this out, because he approves of Obamas imperialist policy and drone warfare. He apparently cant wait until he, like Obama, gets to personally choose targets from a presidential kill list. And then theres Iran. At the debate, Romney lauded Obamas crippling sanctions on the Iranian economy. But there is no such thing as an economy. There are only people engaged in buying and selling. Obama and Romney both say that war against Iran should be a last resort. But if that is the case, why do they dehumanize the people of Iran? Sanctions dont cripple the Iranian economy. Sanctions cripple people economically, nutritionally, and in every other respect. They make life hell for average people, especially children and the elderly. The rulers suffer least of all. Both candidates take it for granted that Iran is working toward a nuclear bomb, and that when it gets one, the American and Israeli people will be at risk. How many times did Romney say that the country is four years closer to a bomb? Of course, the debate moderator, Bob Schieffer of CBS, never challenged that premise. Like all good network stenographers, he lets his questions propagandize on behalf of the permanent regime. There are two problems with all of this: According to American and Israeli intelligence, there is no evidence Iran wants a bomb. Furthermore, even if Iran got one, all it would be good for is deterrence against continuing U.S. and Israeli domination of the Middle East. No one seriously thinks the Iranian regime is suicidal. America has thousands of nukes; Israel has hundreds. So what good would a warhead or two do Iran, even if it was intent on becoming a nuclear power? Obama and Romney are both conceited enough to think a U.S. president can and should orchestrate events in the Muslim world. That alone is reason enough to reject them both.Sheldon Richman is senior fellow at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) and editor of The Freeman magazine.Friday, November 2, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, November 2, 2012 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your honesty continues to impress everyone who needs reassurance about a project. But be careful you dont lose patience with those who are still not ready to act. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Pushing others too hard to do things your way could cause resentment and raise more doubts. Instead, take more time to explain why your methods will work. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be more considerate of those close to you before making a decision that could have a serious effect on their lives. Explain your intentions and ask for their advice. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might have to defend a workplace decision you plan to make. Colleagues might back you up on this, but its the facts that will ultimately win the day for you. Good luck. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The Big Cats co-workers might not be doing enough to help get that project finished. Your roars might stir things up, but gentle purrrsuasion will prove to be more effective. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Someone you care for needs help with a problem. Give it lovingly and without judging the situation. Whatever you feel you should know will be revealed later. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) While youre to be admired for how you handled recent workplace problems, be careful not to react the same way to a new situation until all the facts are in. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Rely on your keen instincts as well as the facts at hand when dealing with a troubling situation. Be patient. Take things one step at a time as you work through it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your curiosity leads you to ask questions. However, the answers might not be what you hoped to hear. Dont reject them without checking them out. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Be careful not to tackle a problem without sufficient facts. Even surefooted Goats need to know where theyll land before leaping off a mountain path. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Appearances can be deceiving. You need to do more investigating before investing your time, let alone your money, in something that might have some hidden flaws. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your recent stand on an issue could make you the focus of more attention than you would like. But youll regain your privacy, as well as more time with loved ones by weeks end. BORN THIS WEEK: Youre a good friend and a trusted confidante.

Friday, November 2, 2012 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com After suffering the longest and most boring presidential campaign in our lifetime, we sought relief by voting early. To share our relief we decided to amuse our readers with a selection of thoughts about government, elections, and politicians. Author Robert Louis Stevenson suggested that politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation seems to be necessary. Attorney Clarence Darrow affirmed Mr. Stevensons thought: When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become president. Now Ive come to believe it. Do you ever wonder whether the real reason we hold elections is to find out if any of the polls were right? Perhaps next time we could rely on the polls. Theyre faster and less expensive. After all, elections are just the process by which we select the people who will get the blame for everything. Could it be that political campaigns are just contrived exhibitions of political hysteria, intended to distract voters from the real issues by paralyzing their ability to think? Columnist and essayist Simeon Strunsky believes popular government is only a theory, because no one has yet found a government that is popular at least not for very long. Irish playwright and critic George Bernard Shaw explained that the chief defect of democracies is that only the party out of office knows how the government should be run. Author and critic H.L. Mencken also tried to explain the problem. He said democratic government is like running a circus from inside the monkey cage. Presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson said in 1952 that the ultimate indignity of the election process is that you can merchandise candidates for high office like breakfast cereal. On the positive side, elections are the only races in which most people pick the winner. The person elected gets 51 percent of the votes cast by the 60 percent of eligible voters who bothered to register. Perhaps government is too big and too important to be left to politicians. As one observer noted, government is the only vessel that leaks from the top. Nothing is easier than spending public money. Because it doesnt seem to belong to anybody, the temptation to spend it is overwhelming. Theres a myth that government can do any job cheaply because it doesnt have to make a profit. The business of government is to stay out of business, but somehow government has become a senior partner in every business in the country. In Congress members rise to speak and say nothing. Nobody listens. Then everybody disagrees. Nonetheless, Congress seems to favor a stable government, judging by the amount of stalling and horsing around that goes on. Mr. Dooley (Finley Peter Dunne) observed that a man who expects to train lobsters to fly is considered a lunatic and confined to an asylum. But a man who believes politicians can be turned into angels by getting elected is called a reformer and is allowed to remain at large. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, November 2, 2012 There are three people on the ballot who have received more than the usual attention this year. Their names are R. Fred Lewis, Barbara J. Pariente and Peggy A. Quince. Whats that? Youre not familiar with them? Well, theyre the three Florida Supreme Court justices due for a merit retention vote on Nov. 6. This year, the retention vote has me a little bit indecisive. Justices, and appellate judges, must be on the ballot every six years. Since the system was instituted in the 1970s, no justice has ever been rejected. The system was put in because of supposed corruption in the partisan election of judges before that. But this year, theres a push to defeat all three. Its because of an Obamacare ruling, where they were part of a majority that struck down a proposed state amendment that would have said that Floridians may not be required to buy the mandated insurance under the health care plan. The push comes mainly from Republicans, who feel the ruling did not reflect the will of the people, who they feel would have passed the amendment. A similar amendment made it through to the ballot this year. Theres a lot of hand-wringing about this movement, saying that people are trying to politicize the court. Well, sorry folks, but the courts have already done that themselves. Many courts, including the highest court in the land, often vote on the side of the party that appointed them, without regard to the will of the people. Theyre supposed to rule based on the law, but its no surprise that to each of them the law comes down on the side of one political party. All three of these justices were appointed by the late Gov. Lawton Chiles, a Democrat, although Quince also had the backing of incoming Republican Gov. Jeb Bush. This movement has had success before, but not in Florida. In Iowa, three justices were removed because of a ruling permitting same-sex marriage, and a fourth is on the ballot this year. This race this year has presented a quandary for me. You see, I dont believe in lifetime appointments for any judges, whether federal or state. When you appoint people to a lifetime anything, they can get complacent and possibly not approach their assignment with the zeal that is needed. As a result of being in favor of term limits, I always vote no for merit retention for all judges. I think a steady turnover would be healthy for the districts, state and nation. I do feel that an amendment in the state against Obamacare is a waste of time. The only way to get rid of that health plan is to knock the Democrats out of the White House and Congress. I really dont understand why people are fanatical about trying to take action at the state level. Anyone whos been around knows that this is a futile effort. So how to vote? Do I vote to punish the three justices who pretty much said the same thing, that this is a federal problem that wont be solved at the state level? Do I vote against these three justices because of my usual term limit bias, knowing full well that for the first time, my vote in this issue may, for a change, actually count? Or do I go against my general principles and vote to keep these justices on the court for another six years? At this writing, Ive still got a little time to make up my mind. But Ill be watching the vote count very closely on the night of Nov. 6 or more likely, in the morning hours of Nov. 7.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

It all comes down to one day. This coming Tuesday, Nov. 6, is Election Day, which will mark the end (we hope) of all the nastiness and bickering, interrupting phone calls and wild television ads. Its all up to you, now. If you havent voted early, then be prepared for a bit of a wait, but help yourself by reading your sample ballot and being prepared when you go to the polls. Its the 11 amendments that are clogging the ballot, all of them thanks to the Legislature, none of them what we would call grass roots amendments. Its all the doing of our Tallahassee legislators. Polling places will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Then the scene turns to the Supervisor of Elections office, where ballots will be tallied. At this writing, there is still a dispute concerning the sheriffs race. It involves the counting of absentee ballots for Dan Kuhn, which now will be credited to Chris Blair. There is a state law here that could negate any challenge by Bernie DeCastro, but he does have a point. He wants all the ballots that voted for Dan Kuhn before Blair was named to replace him to be thrown out. It does seem to be a fair point when he says theres no guarantee that all those absentee early voters who voted for Kuhn might not have voted that way if they knew they were voting for Blair. Of course, our stand hasnt changed. Were basically against voting early, and this dispute only magnifies the argument we have made all along, even before the sheriffs race controversy. When you vote early, you lose the right to change your vote should anything happen before Nov. 6 that would change the landscape. In this case the change was major, but those who already voted are out of luck. The law specifically says that once an absentee ballot is submitted, it cant be altered. Of course, those who wrote the law probably never envisioned what is taking place in our local sheriffs race, but thats hindsight. The fact is that those who voted early by absentee ballot cant change their minds, even though they thought they were voting for Kuhn, and are now voting for Blair. This story undoubtedly isnt over, but regardless, if you havent voted, make sure you get out there on Tuesday. While the national race for president is drawing the most attention across the U.S., there are several other key races. You have the power to help decide. Make sure you use it. We will have a link on our website to the vote tally. Go to smcitizen.com for all the latest figures on election night. Be aware also that, as we stated last week and in the issues before that, no political letters are being published in this final edition before the vote.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

He also provided opportunity for questions on the ballot. Do not forget to vote for the last item on the ballot (after Amendment #12). This bond issue concerns Munroe Regional Hospital which is of particular significance to our community. MRMC is the largest private employer in Marion County with 2,479 employees at an average annual compensation of $42,781. The total annual economic impact of Munroe to the County is estimated at $525 million. The Amendments and the local bond issues will affect you in some way so read the newspaper outlining the impact of yes or no vote, and ask questions before you vote so that you are clear on the impact you want.

On that date the sea ice reached its summer minimum, 1.32 million square miles, half of what the average size of summer ice was between 1979 and 2000, and almost 20 percent lower than the previous record minimum of 1.61 million square miles set on Sept. 18, 2007. NSIDC added that, despite especially warm conditions in 2007 being much more favorable for sea ice loss than this year, the thinning of sea ice due to climate change has made the ice more vulnerable to breakup and melting. Meanwhile, researchers with the European Space Agencys CryoSat-2 probe reported in August that beyond the loss of sea-ice extent, the thickness and volume of the ice has also been declining significantly faster than expected. They found just 1,679 cubic miles this past summer as compared to 3,118 cubic miles in the summer of 2004. They anticipate that the Arctic could be ice-free in the summer for a day or more by the end of the decade. The implications of such melting are potentially immense. For starters, wildlife like polar bears, seals and walruses depend on sea ice for their survival; their habitat is literally being pulled out from under them. Polar bears were added to the federal Endangered Species List in 2008 for this very reason in what environmentalists herald as a great victory in that the federal government officially recognized the existence of global warming and would therefore be able to take more decisive action to rein in carbon pollutionof course, that part of the dream has yet to be realized. Perhaps even more alarming is the fact that melting sea ice and accelerating Arctic warming spur changes in the jet stream that increase the frequency of weather extremes like droughts, floods, heat waves and cold spells in the mid-latitude regions of the Northern Hemisphere. The fact that 2012 has been a scorcher all aroundJuly was the hottest month on record, with two-thirds of the U.S. in drought, wildfires running rampant and half the counties in the country designated as federal disaster areasonly makes the connection between carbon pollution and the greenhouse effect all the more apparent. Environmentalists argue that we already have the technology and the legal tools to achieve rapid greenhouse pollution reductions Full use of all of the Clean Air Acts successful pollution-reduction programs is our best route to quick reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, says Shaye Wolf, climate science director at the Center for Biological Diversitys Climate Law Institute. The Obama administration, however, has been too slow and timid in using this bedrock law to cut pollution. The polar meltdown shows were teetering on the brink of climate-change catastrophe, adds Wolf. Arctic sea ice plays a critical role in regulating the planets climate. We cant wait any longer to cut carbon pollution. Dear E arthTalk: What s the latest on the proposal to turn parts of the Northern Forest in Maine into a big national park? -Peter G riswold, J affrey NH The idea of turning a large chunk of forest in central Maine into a national park dates back at least 150 years when Henry David Thoreau himself called for making the region a national preserve in essays about his travels through the area via foot and canoe in the 1850s. To this day most of the areas in central Maine that Thoreau visited are still primarily undeveloped save for intermittent timber extraction. But recent changes in land ownership there are worrying ecologists. The non-profit RESTORE: The North Woods has been carrying the torch for creating a Maine Woods National Park and Preserve for 20 years and reports that, between 1994 and 2005, the share of forest land in Maines 9.3 million acre Unorganized Territory Arctic summer sea levels at lowest point ever EARTH TALK PLEASESEEEARTH TALK, PAGE30 CANADIAN MEDS 000CZJK 7380 SW 60th A ve., Ste #1, Ocala 237-0021 Locally Owned and Operated NEW CUSTOMERS PRESENT THIS AD AND GET $10 OFF!

She was born in West Des Moines, Iowa March 19, 1918 and graduated from Valley Junction High School. While in high school Maxine discovered her natural talent for music, playing instruments ranging from the French horn to bass drum. Music was a passion she explored and enjoyed throughout her entire life. Upon graduating from high school Maxine attended Business College in Des Moines, Iowa. While in Business College she began corresponding with a classmate whom she had known since the second grade. This cross-country correspondence blossomed into a lifelong romance with the love of Maxines life Frank Wood. With the onset of WWII, Frank served overseas while Maxine supported the home front by volunteering her time supporting the war effort and in raising their young son, Dennis. Following WWII, Maxine was active in church and community organizations during which time her second son, Gary, was born. Maxines early married years were spent in Virginia raising her sons, instilling a love and appreciation of American history which they enjoy to this day. In 1959, with her beloved Franks job transfer, she moved her family west to Downers Grove, Ill., where they resided for the next 30 years. In 1989, Maxine moved to Ocala where she attended the Ocala West United Methodist Church. She was a lifelong member of the Womens Society of Christian Service (WSCS) and was very active in the Oak Run Community. While living in Central Florida, she pursued her hobbies of raising African Violets and knitting hats, scarves, and blankets for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Maxine is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 71 years, Frank H. Wood; and is survived by children, Dennis Wood and his wife, Penny of Washington State, and Gary Wood and his wife, Nancy of Dacula, Ga.; grandchildren, Stephen, Michael, Douglas, Kimberly, and Kelley plus nine great-grandchildren. Maxine touched and affected the lives of many people she will be dearly missed by all. Friends and family are invited to attend a memorial service at 1 p.m., Friday, Nov. 9, 2012 at Ocala West United Methodist Church with Pastor Alan Jefferson officiating.

Baked ham dinner scheduled owned by timber companies dropped from 59.2 to 15.5 percent while that owned by investors grew from 3.2 to 32.6 percent. RESTORE is concerned that this dramatic change positions the region for a real estate gold rush. A huge development already planned for the shores of Moosehead Lake in the region is just one example of the kinds of changes afoot that could decimate the regions wilderness qualities. RESTOREs proposal, first aired in 1994, calls for setting aside 3.2-million acres surrounding Baxter State Park (home of Maines tallest peak, Mt. Katahdin, and the northern tip of the Appalachian Trail) as a national park. Bigger than Yellowstone and Yosemite combined, the proposed park would safeguard thousands of miles of rivers and streams while providing unfragmented habitat for wildlife. According to RESTORE, there are no significant chunks of undeveloped wilderness anywhere in the Northeastern United States and that such a large park is needed to protect wildlife habitat on a landscape scale to allow for adaptation in the face of unprecedented climate change. Also, the proposed park would ensure permanent access for outdoor recreation and support a diversified and sustainable economy. Although RESTOREs campaign has the backing of a majority of Maine residents, it has failed to gain enough traction to make it before Congress. Some blame local opposition, allied as the Maine Woods Coalition, for convincing the states Congressional delegation not to push for the proposal. A new proposal from Burts bees founder Roxanne Quimby later rekindled the issue: In May 2011 she ofEARTH TALKCONTINUED FROM PAGE 29 fered to donate up to 70,000 acres she owns adjacent to Baxter State Park for a new national park, along with a $40 million endowment for park operations. And to appease those opposed to RESTOREs proposal, she offered a similar amount of land for multiple-use, including hunting. Quimbys proposal includes only lands she owns, and would create a much smaller park than what RESTORE envisioned. A few months after Quimby made her offer known U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis held a public listening session in Millinocket, Maine. But then in February 2012, Maines Congressional delegation convinced Secretary Salazar to table the new proposal for the time being. So for now, the fate of millions of treesthe veritable lungs of the Northeastern U.S.and hundreds of wildlife species may just hang in the balance. 000D3UT Millennium Hair Salon at our new location 8296 SW 103rd St. Rd. 352-237-3676 Monday Friday 9-5, Saturday 9-4 Walk-Ins Welcome A Certified Goldwell Color Salon With coupon.

ANYITEMPRICEDUNDER $100MAXIMUM 10 WORDS RUNSFOR 2 WEEKSFREE TOLL FREE1-877-676-1403 Expert testimony from scientists appearing before the NRC judges on behalf of the Ecology Party of Florida and Nuclear Information & Resource Service (NIRS) warned that construction and operation of the proposed dual reactors would deplete the regions aquifer, cause saltwater intrusion to the already-imperiled local water supply, and harm fragile springs and wetland plants and wildlife in the area. The location of the proposed two-reactor project is nine miles inland from the Gulf coast, in an ecologically rich area consisting of forest and more than 700 acres of fresh-water wetlands. The wetlands play a critical role in the ecological health of the region and provide habitat for endangered and threatened species such as the Florida manatee and wood storks. We are talking about Progress Energy trashing important wetland areas of the United States, said Ecology Party of Florida Treasurer Gary Hecker. The notion that a massive nuclear reactor project can reverse the flow of water from fresh to saltwater and have no impact on this delicate ecosystem is preposterous. And we take no comfort whatsoever in Progress Energys glib assertions that the problem somehow can be mitigated after massive and most likely irreversible damage is done in the region. Mary Olson, director of NIRS Southeast U.S. office, said: Now that the NRC is headed by a respected geologist, our hope is that the very weak geology science that went into the Levy reactor site review will be a thing of the past. Knowing of NRC Chair Allison Macfarlanes outstanding credentials, it is our hope that a review that blindly rubberstamps the wishes of industry will be replaced by a more independent and serious-minded approach to bona fide geology concerns. The testimony of the experts contradicts an environmental study prepared by the NRC finding that the effects of the two reactors on the wetlands will be relatively minor. The groups and their experts contend the NRCs conclusion is wrong because it grossly oversimplifies the complex karst geology and hydrology of the region. Experts on karst geology testified that the planned water withdrawals will very likely dry up springs and wetlands in localized areas throughout the region, threatening wildlife and the fragile wetland ecosystems and causing existing wells to become more saline. The Ecology Party of Florida is a political party that believes that environmental protection is of paramount importance because without a healthy environment quality of life suffers. Nuclear Information and Resource Service, founded in 1978 by grassroots activists, serves as an information clearinghouse for members of public concerned about nuclear safety. NIRS also promotes a non-nuclear U.S. energy policy. Retirement CeremonySenior Chief Petty Officer Robert A.

For those who are not voting early, Election Day is next Tuesday, Nov. 6, with polls open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The long ballot contains several local races, some statewide and, of course, the vote for president of the United States. Under the presidential race, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are listed first, and they are followed by 10 others from other parties. After the vote for president, there are four people on the ballot in the race for the U.S. Senate, including Connie Mack and Bill Nelson. Also on the list with no party affiliation are Bill Gaylor and Chris Borgia. Depending on where you live, there are Congressional, state Senate and state House races on the ballot. In Marion County, there are four contested countywide elections, starting with the battleground of the race of sheriff. The ballot lists Dan Kuhn and Bernie DeCastro, but Kuhn has withdrawn and Chris Blair is now the candidate. However, to vote for Blair, voters must fill in the ballot for Kuhn. The case is still in court, where DeCastro is trying to get Blair either thrown off the ballot, since he already lost in the primary, or have absentee votes for Kuhn that were sent in before Blair replaced Kuhn tossed out. The other key local races, almost lost in the shadows of the sheriffs battle, include George Tomyn vs. Diana Greene in the race for superintendent of schools, Wesley Wilcox vs. Judge Cochran for supervisor of elections and Earl Arnett vs. Jessica Hadley for County Commission. Two other commission candidates, David Moore and Stan McClain, are on the ballot with no opposition listed, although there are write-in candidates. Because the Florida Legislature is controlled by Republicans, the GOP is listed first in each race. There are three Florida Supreme Court justices up for merit retention, 11 state Constitution amendments and, at the end of the ballot, the bond issue for Munroe County Hospital District. For those who have absentee ballots, they must be returned to the Supervisor of Elections office by 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Those who are mailing the ballots back are reminded that it costs 65 cents in postage because of the size of the ballot. It is suggested that people vote early on Tuesday, Lines are expected.

Elementary school students now have own virtual schoolMarion County opened its newest public school last week without building a single traditional brick-andmortar classroom. Instead, its virtual schooling, available online 24/7 to students at elementary grade levels. The new school, called Marion e-Learning, offers students in kindergarten through fifth grade the option to enroll in online classes for a custom-tailored education. They work at their own pace, on their own time, in their own space. Regular face-to-face meetings keep students and teachers familiar with each other. Science fair participation, field trips, and awards ceremonies are some of the activities available to students. The online experience offers students interactive multi-media content and is available free of charge. Students must have their own computer with Internet access, webcam, microphone, and access to a public library. Teachers are state-certified and developed the actual curriculum, which is aligned to Common Core state standards. The addition of Marion e-Learning means Marion County Public Schools now offers a complete online K-12 education experience.
