More photos, Page 28. Nearly 2,000 students from public schools across Marion County will participate in Marion Countys official Veterans Day Program set for Monday, Nov. 12. This is the sixth year the school district has presented Marion Countys official Veterans Day ceremony. The event takes place at the Ocala / Marion County Veterans Memorial Park (Southeast Fort King Street and 25th Avenue, Ocala) at 11 a.m. and is the official Veterans Day Ceremony for the park. Superintendent of Schools Jim Yancey begins the ceremony, with students from various schools providing music including Lake Weir and West Port High schools, Dr. N.H. Jones, Hammett Bowen, and Maplewood Elementary schools, and Hillcrest school. Students will recognize local veterans for their service, and local families whove lost loved ones to military service will present a memorial wreath at the parks monument. Junior ROTC (Reserve Officers Training Corps) units from Belleview, Dunnellon, Forest, Lake Weir, North Marion, Vanguard, and West Port High schools, along with Francis Marion Military Academy, will participate. The Hammett Bowen Elementary color guard will also take part. A US Marines Honor Guard from Orlando will provide a military gun salute and post the colors for the ceremony. Pilots from the Leeward Air Ranch War-birds will fly over the park in military formation. The public is encouraged to attend the ceremony. Veterans ceremony is Monday PHOTO BY RON RATNERLaw enforcement appreciation The 17th annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Barbecue, presented by The Florida Thorobred Fillies, was held at the Southeastern Livestock Pavilion.

Blair wins; FDLE delays transition FILE PHOTO BY JIM CLARKChris Blair is shown earlier this year at a meeting of the State Road 200 Coalition. BY JIM CLARK Editor Just when you thought things had settled down in the Marion County sheriffs race, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement stepped in to add some confusion.. In the hottest race of the local election, Blair defeated Bernie DeCastro, 73 percent to 26 percent. It has been a roller coaster ride for Blair, who lost in the Republican primary to Dan Kuhn, who dropped out of the race after a scandal. GOP officials decided to put Blair back in position to win, but ballots had already been printed with Kuhns name, so a vote for Kuhn meant a vote for Blair. DeCastro, from the Constitution Party, tried to get the early votes cast before Kuhns withdrawal thrown out, but a judge ruled against him. Blair then celebrated the win Tuesday night and was prepared to work with Sheriff Ed Dean, who is retiring, on the transition. But along comes the FDLE. In a brief, pointed statement Wednesday morning, Dean said, I congratulate Chris Blair on his election. I understand the need for an orderly transition of the office and I was prepared to begin this process. However, I have been requested this morning by Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey to West Marion Hospital CEO to speakThe State Road 200 Coalition will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, Nov. 12, at the Collins Health Resource Center, Building 300, Suite 303, TimberRidge Medical Park, on Southwest 110th Street off State Road 200 in Ocala. The meeting begins at 1 p.m. with refreshments available at 12:30. The scheduled speaker is Ginger Carroll, CEO of West Marion Hospital. The meeting is open to the public.

The Friendship Kiwanis Club of Ocala is suggesting a way to give a special gift to family and friends for the holidays. The gift is a box of Indian River delicious fruits packed in different assortments of seedless navel oranges and grapefruits. That special arrangement you select will be delivered directly to the recipient of your choice at the time you prefer. Best of all, you can avoid the hassle of holiday shopping and wrapping. We do it all with an unconditional guarantee. Each and every citrus is hand selected and carefully packed to ensure that they arrive in prime condition. Please call Stan at 352873-3433 or Phil at 352-3048184 for order forms. Kiwanis is a nonprofit organization that contributes all income to service projects such as the Salvation Army, Florida Center for the blind, Terrific kids, Camp Kiwanis, Sheltering Arms for homeless children, and Shands pediatric unit. We also participate in Meals on Wheels to assist the homebound. Our meetings feature an interesting speaker every week as well as a good time. Anyone interested in the club may visit any Wednesday morning at 8 a.m. for coffee and good fellowship. Meetings are at the Bank of the Ozarks in Friendship Shopping Cendelay the Sheriffs Office transition efforts for 30 days in view of the pending FDLE investigation. Commissioner Bailey has promised that FDLE will conduct an expedited investigation, Into what, however, isnt known. Meanwhile, other local candidates, almost all Republicans, celebrated victories in the election. In the race for school superintendent, George Tomyn out distanced Diana Greene, 58 percent to 41 percent. Another countywide election saw Wes Wilcox top Judge Cochran, 59 percent to 40 percent, in the race for Supervisor of Elections. Wilcox is already a veteran of the local office. The Marion County Commission will have two new members when it reorganizes. In the only real contested race on Tuesday, Earl Arnett defeated Jessica Hadley, 55 percent to 44 percent, and will replace Charlie Stone, who ran unopposed for a State House seat. Incumbent Stan McClain and newcomer David Moore easily defeated write-in hopefuls. Both were winners in the primary, with Moore ousting incumbent Mike Amsden. In some other races affecting Marion County, Ted Yoho easily beat two opponents to win the U.S. House District 3 race. In the primary, Yoho ousted longtime incumbent Cliff Stearns. In U.S. House District 5, incumbent Democrat Corrine Brown got 70 percent of the vote to win, although in Marion County Republican LeAnne Kolb was the top vote-getter. In U.S. House District 11, incumbent Richard Nugent defeated David Werder by getting 64 percent of the vote. In nearby Florida House districts, Keith Perry retained his seat over Andrew Morey, incumbent Jimmy Smith defeated well-known challenger Nancy Argenziano, and Stone and Dennis Baxley won without opposition. In the only local Florida Senate race, Dorothy Hukill defeated Frank Bruno in District 8. Charlie Dean was re-elected without opposition.

Likewise, the group advocates that consumers recycle used motor oils, limit the amount of fertilizer and pesticides used on plants, lawns and gardens, and generally reduce household chemical use. And leftover chemicals should be disposed of at hazardous waste collection sites (find one near you at earth911.com), not down the drain or into the gutter. Another way to help is to initiate a Source Water Protection process, which involves locating local groundwater sources and identifying ways to protect and conserve them. Anyone interested in doing so can download the Groundwater Foundations free Source Water Assessment and Protection Workshop Guide, which has detailed information about a number of source water protection strategies and additional information on areas where the Safe Drinking Water Act and Clean Water Act intersect. Funding for the guide was provided by the EPAs Office of Groundwater and Drinking Water, which considers it a must-read for officials, policymakers and activists deliberating land use and water quality issues.

Ginny Bateman Portland OR Western burrowing owls (Athene cunicularia) are tiny, long-legged members of the owl family, native to the Americas and preferring open landscapes where they can dig new holes or use existing ones (such as abandoned prairie dog, skunk or armadillo homes) to nest and rear their young. Unlike most other owl species, these small but charismatic birds are more often seen out and about during daylight hours, but they are most active and do their primary feeding at night, preferring a diet of small rodents and large insects. Once a common species in California and across North America, the Western burrowing owl has become a rarer and rarer sight over the last three decades given habitat loss and other environmental perils the bird faces. Biologists consider the bird an indicator of wider ecosystem health, so if its population numbers are healthy then local ecosystems are likely thriving. But these days the bird is endangered in Canada and threatened in Mexico, is a state endangered species in Colorado, and is considered a species of special concern in Florida and most of the western U.S. It is also listed on the International Union for Conservation of Natures (IUCNs) international Red List of endangered and threatened species (albeit as a species of Least Concern in comparison with others in more dire straits). A group of dedicated birders, conservationists, biologists and concerned citizens in San Franciscos East Bay came together to protect dwindling burrowing owl populations locally but ended up creating a movement that spans the entire North American continent. Their group, the Burrowing Owl Conservation Network (BOCN) believes that burrowing owls are vital to maintaining healthy, functioning ecosystems, and as such is working on several fronts to help protect habitat and reverse the animals population slide. First and foremost, BOCN works to conserve habitat for burrowing owls in California and beyond, including constructing artificial burrows to help re-establish burrowing owl colonies while larger ecosystem restoration efforts are underway. Teaching children and communities about ways they can help protect and improve burrowing owl habitat is another important part of BOCNs work. Other ways the group helps the owls is by advocating for legislation and policy changes that encourage conservation of habitat, networking with like-minded individuals and institutions, and conducting field and laboratory research to increase understanding about how to help burrowing owls and create habitat conditions ideal for their survival. The fact that burrowing owl populations in other parts of the world are rebounding gives hope to BOCN and other wildlife advocates and environmentalists. The birds are common and widespread in Central and South America, where they inhabit fields and even sometimes parks in urban areas. Whether the birds can replicate their success in Latin America up north remains to be seen. As for what readers can do to help, learning about the behavior, biology and habitat needs of wild animals like the burrowing owl is a sure way to develop respect for natures inhabitants and a lifelong willingness to protect them. And nothing beats witnessing burrowing owls go about their rounds. Seeing them in the wild is enough to convince anyone that they are worth fighting to protect.

But it all will pay off down the line. Things ease up in time for weekend fun with family and/or friends. TAURU S (A pril 2 0 to May 2 0 ) Your genuine concern for others could prompt you to promise more than you can deliver. Its best to modify your plans now, before you wind up overcommitted later. GE M INI ( May 21 to J une 2 0 ) A situation that seems simple at first glance needs a more thorough assessment before you give it your OK. Dig deeper for information that might be hidden from view. C AN C ER (J une 21 to J uly 22) Careful: Right now, things might not be quite what they appear. Even the intuitive Crab could misread the signs. Get some solid facts before you act on your suspicions. LE O (J uly 23 to A ug 22) Your energy levels are high, allowing you to complete those unfinished tasks before you take on a new project. A social invitation could come from an unlikely source. V IRG O (A ug 23 to Sept 22) You might think youre helping, but unless youre asked for a critique, dont give it. If you are asked, watch what you say. Your words should be helpful, not hurtful. LI B RA ( Sept 23 to Oct 22) Your attempt at mediating disputes might meet some opposition at first. But once youre shown to be fair and impartial, resistance soon gives way to cooperation. SCO R P I O ( Oct 23 to N ov 21) Go ahead. Reward yourself for helping settle a disturbing workplace situation. On another note: A personal relationship might be moving to a higher level.

T he week is Give Wildlife A Brake, a program to increase the awareness of motorists, stressing that defensive driving can benefit people as well as animals crossing the road. Noah was the first person to give animals a break when he loaded them on the ark. All went well until four gnus came up the gangplank. Their handler explained, You see, first theres the good gnus and then theres the bad gnus. Obviously, Noah didnt accept the bad gnus. If Noah had lived in the United States today he would have had bad news. When he couldnt finish the ark in the time that God had given him, Noah complained to God, First, I had to get a construction permit, and I had to hire an engineering firm to redraw the plans to conform with the building codes. Then I got into a fight with OSHA claimed the ark needed a sprinkler system and floatation devices. My neighbor objected, claiming I was violating zoning ordinances by building the ark in my front yard, so I had to get a variance from the city planning commission. Then, I had problems getting enough wood for the ark, because there was a ban on cutting trees to protect the Spotted Owl. I finally convinced the U.S. Forest Service that I really needed the wood to save the owls. However, the Fish and Wildlife Service wouldnt let me take the two owls. The carpenters went on strike. I had to negotiate a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board before anyone would do any work. When I started rounding up the animals, an animal rights group sued me. They objected to my taking only two of each kind aboard. Meanwhile, the EPA notified me that I could not complete the Ark without filing an environmental impact statement on Your proposed flood. They didnt take very kindly to the idea that they had no jurisdiction over the conduct of the Creator of the Universe. Then, the Army Corps of Engineers demanded a map of the proposed flood plain. I sent them a globe. I am trying to resolve a complaint filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that I am practicing discrimination by not taking atheists aboard. The IRS has seized my assets, claiming that Im building the ark in preparation to flee the country to avoid paying taxes. I just got a notice from the state that I owe them some kind of user tax and failed to register the ark as a recreational water craft. And finally, the ACLU got the courts to issue an injunction against further construction of the Ark, stating that since God is flooding the earth, its a religious event, and, therefore unconstitutional. God said to Noah, Forget about building the ark. Noah looked up hopefully. You mean youre not going to destroy the earth, Lord? No, He said sadly. I dont have to. The government already has. Band aid The Department of the Interior has changed the metal bands used to tag migratory birds. The bands had the address of the Washington Biological Survey, abbreviated as Wash. Biol. Surv. until the agency received a letter from an unhappy camper: Dear Sirs: While camping last week, I shot one of your birds. I think it was a crow. I followed the cooking instructions on the leg tag and want to tell you it tasted horrible. The bands are now marked Fish & Wildlife Service.Wild lifeUtah wildlife officials are concerned for the safety of a man dressed as a goat in a herd of goats. I kid you not. My wife and I were watching a wildlife program about the cheetah. I said, You know why theyre endangered, dont you? She nodded. Of course, Cheetahs never prosper. This wildlife book you sold me is nothing but pictures of animals. Biologists have recently produced immortal frogs by removing their vocal cords. They cant croak.Hop high A kangaroo kept getting out of his zoo enclosure. The zoo officials put up a ten-foot fence. He was out the next morning, just roaming around the zoo. A twenty-foot fence was put up. Again he got out. When the fence was forty feet high, a camel in the next enclosure asked the kangaroo, How high do you think theyll go? The kangaroo said, About a thousand feet, unless somebody locks the gate at night.

Read the classifieds Give wildlife a break this week P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank E The Environmental Magazine D ear E arthTalk : What is currently being done in the U. S to ensure the wise use and safety of our nation s groundwa ter ? -K e v in O rr, Baton Rouge, L A Keeping fresh water safe and abundant is a challenge for all societies. In the U.S., about half of the countrys drinking water comes from groundwater sources. Many rural areas derive all of their drinking water from groundwater, which also provides 40 percent of the irrigation needs of American farmers. While underground aquifers may at one point have seemed limitless, huge demand for water (especially in arid areas like the Southwest) means that groundwater reserves are precious and need to be carefully managed with conservation in mind. Also, groundwater is easily contaminated by any number of common man-made products like gasoline, oil, road salts, pesticides, fertilizers and other chemicals. Management of specific water supplies is decentralizedlocal and regional water authorities manage supplies for municipalities and counties around the countrybut oversight comes from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as mandated by the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act. Enacted in 1972, the Clean Water Act addresses water pollution in general and requires everyone, but especially large water users including large industrial and agricultural operations, to deal with their water inflows and outflows in a responsible, non-polluting manner. Meanwhile, 1974s Safe Drinking Water Act requires the EPA to set standards for drinking water quality that the 150,000 public water entities across the country must meet. Third party laboratories provide detailed analyses to ensure that local supplies live up to the EPAs expectations. These laws work together to keep groundwater supplies safe, but environmentalists would like to see both strengthened substantially in the face of drought-inducing global warming and other threats. While regulation and enforcement of industry and agriculture are important for protecting our limited groundwater supplies, consumers also must play a role. The Groundwater Foundation, a Nebraska-based non-profit working to educate people and inspire action to ensure sustainable, clean groundwater for future generations, suggests taking short showers, shutting off the faucet while brushing teeth and shaving, running full loads of dishes and laundry, checking for leaky PHOTO BY RON RATNERInternational Games Day Saturday was International Games Day all over the world.

BY MICHAEL W. GROCHOWSKI November 11 is more than just a national holiday; Veterans Day is a time to honor the men and women who risk their lives to protect our freedom. We at Social Security ask you to join us in saluting the men and women of the armed forces. Be sure to say thank you to a veteran on this important day. For those who return home with injuries, it will be our turn to help them. If you know any wounded veterans, please let them know about Social Securitys Wounded Warriors website. You can find it at www.socialsecurity.gov/woundedwarriors. The Wounded Warriors website answers a number of commonly asked questions, and shares other useful information about disability benefits, including how veterans can receive expedited processing of disability claims. It is important to note that benefits available through Social Security are different than those from the Department of Veterans Affairs and require a separate application. The expedited process is used for military service members who become disabled while on active military service on or after October 1, 2001, regardless of where the disability occurs. Even active duty military who continue to receive pay while in a hospital or on medical leave should consider applying for disability benefits if they are unable to work due to a disabling condition. Active duty status and receipt of military pay does not necessarily prevent payment of Social Security disability benefits. Receipt of military payments should never stop someone from applying for disability benefits from Social Security. A person cannot receive Social Security disability benefits while engaging in substantial work for pay or profit. However, the work activity is the controlling factor and not the amount of pay the person receives or military duty status. Learn more by visiting www.socialsecurity.gov/woundedwarriors. We at Social Security thank all veterans and members of the armed services for all that they do not only on Veterans Day, but every day of the year.Michael W.

PAGE 8

The Cold War (1947-1991) was so named because there was no direct military action since both sides possessed nuclear weapons and because their use would probably guarantee mutual assured destruction. (Many of us remember duck and cover drills). Rather, it featured a series of political and military skirmishes fought on the periphery, some of which broke out into hot war with client states of the various members of NATO and/or the Warsaw Pact, I.e. Korea, Southeast Asia. Probably the most memorable of these skirmishes are the Berlin Airlift, erection of the Berlin Wall, Cuban missile crisis, deployment of cruise missiles to western Europe and a little known event from the fall of 1983 Operation Able Archer. Two of these (the Cuban missile crises and Able Archer) brought the world to the threshold of all-out nuclear war. The Cold War was fought by hundreds of thousands of veterans, most of whom were drafted or draft motivated. They served in bomber and missile forces, the submarine fleet and on the trip wire lines of Western Europe and Korea. There is little appreciation for the fact that even at the height of the Southeast Asian conflict, more GIs were serving in Europe than in Southeast Asia. Thousands more served in Korea, Okinawa and Japan. Of course this does not included the missile, bomber and submarine alert forces at home. These shadow warriors stood alert away from home and family; carried out countless training drills and probed the envelope constantly testing the resolve of our primary foe. Although only infrequently subjected to direct combat the nature of the drills and the conditions under which air/seaborne/missile alerts were carried out in many cases made them just as hazardous as combat operations. There are no statistics as to the actual casualty count; however, there were more then 2,500 non-hostile deaths in West Germany between 1945 and 1975, more than the total losses in Afghanistan for a 10-year period; yet these veterans go largely unrecognized. There is no Cold War Victory Medal or campaign ribbon; those who served from 1947 to 1950, 1954 to 1961 and from 1975 to 1990 are not even eligible for the American Legion or the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Let us not forget these shadow warriors who were the victors in the Cold War! In a curious footnote to history, the Cold War would end on the weekend of Veterans Day 1989 when East Germany surrendered to the demand of its citizens for freedom and an end to the standoff between East and West and opened the Berlin Wall, much as the Armistice called for by Imperial Germany in 1918 which led to the end of hostilities. In closing, as a veteran of the Southeast Asia Conflict, I must acknowledge the 30th anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, dedicated on Nov. 13, 1982.Article by CMSgt. Fred OHern USAF (Ret.):The Veteran I raised by hand to recognize the colonel passing by The shuffling gray-hair in between, he never caught my eye But, he saw me and my salute and snapped his hand Up to his brow and straightened up, a sudden, different man. The colonel smiled, and as did I, he saw the mans mistake Well, if he thought Id saluted him, it might just serve to make His day a bit more proud as he recalls another day When he served on land, or sea, or in war far way. Was it Ardennes or on the beach, he watched his buddies die? And penned a note to their mom or sis and paused to wonder why They go the golden BB while he cam through unscathed A victory parade in 45 crowds cheered and flags they waved. But then he was forgotten, through Korea, Vietnam Nothing left heroic in a shuffling gray-haired man Waiting now alone to die, though part of him did die In mud, sand, snow or in cold German skies. And who cares for one now old and gray, with clothes illfit and in the way Of younger troops with things to do and new wars far away? But I care now as I saw change in the old mans eye and stride As he marched head high to pass me by, his head now high with pride. Perhaps when I am old and gray, some young pup third my age Will raise his hand, salute to me and never stop to gauge The time in years apart are we, but know I never swerved From duty as I saw it, and like the old man, too, I served.By John Piowatty, LtCol USAF (Ret.) This poem depicts a true incident at a USAF base hospital. Lt. Col. Piowatty as a young captain in August 1967 led a flight of F-105 Thunderchiefs against the Paul Doumer Bridge outside Hanoi, North Vietnam. In spite of intense antiaircraft fire, his flight successfully destroyed the bridge in the first use of smart bombs that are now commonplace in the military. John went on to a distinguished and colorful career.From your reporterThe column in this issue of the Citizen has been largely devoted to the veterans of our community. It is fitting that this should be as we celebrate Veterans Day on Sunday, Nov. 11. Personally, I have had the honor and privilege to walk among heroes and I here and now thank them for their service to this great country of ours. Special thanks to CMSgt. Fred OHern for his contribution to this edition. Your questions, ideas and suggestions are always welcome so feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I always enjoy hearing from you. Friday, November 9, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com T he campaign headquarters post mortem of an unsuccessful presidential candidate begins with a lament something like this: If we had carried Montana (3 electoral votes) we could have won it all. If only are sad but mildly comforting words. Every four years we get an opportunity to explain the mystery of the Electoral College. Writing this exposition for publication just after the election avoids any allegation that we intended to cause confusion and voter suppression. It is important to remember there would be no United States of America if the former colonies hadnt approved our Constitution. The new states had no intention of going out of business, particularly the smaller ones. They intended then and still insist to have a voice in Washington. Article I, Section 4 of the Constitution says the States will hold elections for Senators and Representatives. Congress can fiddle with some of the details, but the States are still in charge. Article II requires the States to participate in election of the President by having voters choose electors equal to the number of Senators and Representatives each State sends to Congress. Electors are nominated by political parties and appointed by the states. After citizens have voted, the electors cast their ballots and later transmit them to Congress to be counted. Why such a rigamarole? To preserve states rights the founders considered having state legislatures select the president. They dropped that idea because deadlocks would be likely if each state insisted on electing a favorite son or regional good ole boy. The framers of the Constitution also considered letting Congress select the president. On reconsideration they decided to fashion a system which would insulate the President from a political majority in Congress and from citizens who could be manipulated by promises and corruption. Before and after every presidential election, a few voices rise to suggest the Electoral College is outdated and should be abolished. They forget or choose to ignore that Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Fidel Castro, and Hugo Chavez were elected to power by direct votes of the people. One of my favorite national columnists, Mark Shields, wrote recently that The Electoral College Must Go. He said it is absolutely anti-democratic and all the democracies created since the end of World War II have managed to function without an electoral college. We have to disagree for the single reason that the United States is not and was not intended to be a democracy. We are a successful 225 year old constitutional republic. Would we prefer to be a European social democracy? Would we be better off? We dont think so. As one historian put it, The democracy genie was quickly put back in the bottle. Given the current state of party politics, we believe the founders had great foresight when they reasoned that the president should not be chosen by legislatures, by Congress, or by popular vote of the people. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, November 9, 2012 F or a native New Yorker, who was raised across the George Washington Bridge in New Jersey, TV watching last week was built mostly around Hurricane Sandy. There were a lot of familiar sites both shown and talked about as Manhattan, Staten Island and the Jersey Shore (the area, not the TV show) were highlighted as the areas most damaged by the wind and water, and Long Island, which had the devastating fire that swept through Breezy Point. Some held particular memories, especially New Jersey. There were two sites along the Shore (they didnt call it the beach when I was there, dont know what they do now) that brought recollections of past years. One was pictures of the town of Tuckerton, which leads to an area called Mystic Islands, where for a while in the 1960s my parents had a summer home. It was kind of nice the only time I ever drove (is that the right word?) a boat was at their home they had a small, slow-powered boat that I learned to steer, with some effort. The engine was in the back so it was backward from a car you turned the wheel to the right to go left, and so forth. It was also where I learned my young wifes dedication to family. My folks had ordered a load of gravel to spread over their sandy yard, and we were going down there on the weekend. Dad, however, got sick, and they were a day late, but with a great deal of help from my wife, we got the gravel spread ourselves so they wouldnt have to do it. I cant imagine what that area, and that house, looks like now. The other area was Island Beach. Before we were married, my wife, her sister and I went down to Island Beach, crossing over the Toms River Bridge. Now Im reading about all the devastation in that area. On Staten Island, I had a great aunt who lived in St. George, on a hill overlooking the ferry slip. I assume that she is long gone, but that area probably got hit by winds, mostly. It was way too high to have a surge. I watched with interest as the news showed a ferry coming in as service was resumed, but they never showed the view of Staten Island from the ferry, which I would have liked to see. We always took the ferry then there was no Verrazano Bridge, I dont believe, and it was too far to drive south in Jersey to cross the existing bridge. I wrote a friend in northern New Jersey, and she responded that her area, about 15 miles west of Manhattan, had some wind damage and no power, but she and her family were OK. I thought it was kind of ironic how, many years ago, we moved to Florida, where you have to be wary of hurricanes, but here we were escaping with little effect while the New York area was suffering. All my relatives have moved out of New Jersey, so there werent many others to contact. My old high school put a notice on Facebook that classes were canceled at some point. Anytime people ask you to help the Red Cross, even a small amount can help. If anything, we know how to survived hurricanes and live with the aftermath the people in New York really havent got that experience. You can plan for all sorts of things in life, but when Mother Nature decides to throw you a curve, theres not much you can do about it. Thats why, at the beginning of hurricane season each year, were reminding you to be prepared. After all, you never know.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Y es, tis the season for, well, you know, scams and thieves. A couple of weeks ago, our sheriffs substation investigated incidents at Walmart, where car windows were smashed in during some smash and grab attempts. As of this writing, no suspects have been caught. There are some precautions that everyone should take. The most obvious is not to put things that you buy in your vehicle, where they are visible to the public, and then leave your vehicle to go into another store, or a restaurant, or to do some chores. When you buy items at the store, if you cant put them out of sight in a trunk or somewhere like that, go straight home. Take your items into your house. Dont put your car in jeopardy of being broken into. Big parking lots are the perfect spots for thieves. Its easy for them to blend in with crowds, wait until its clear, and then quickly get away with your items. But other areas are also vulnerable. The other thing we have to be aware of is the people who try some scams against honest people. There are so many that its impossible to list them all, so heres a simple list of things to be aware of. Never give out personal information on the phone to someone you dont know if you didnt initiate the call. That includes obvious things like Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, and so forth, but also simple things like your address and, yes, even your name. Some of these people make several phone calls at once, and talk to the first person that answers. If they have to ask your name, just tell them, Hey, you called me. If you dont know who you called, good bye. Never invite anyone into your home unless youve initiated the visit (repairmen, etc.) and never, no matter what, leave them alone to have the run of your house. Never, ever, send money to anyone you dont know, even if they tell you its a good faith payment for a prize you won. And if that person says theyre a relative, do some checking before you send the money (the grandson stuck in Panama scam). Remember, you cant win a sweepstakes that you didnt enter. If youre told that you won, hang up. Finally, its an old saying, but if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Protect yourself, your purchases and your money, and youll have a much happier holiday. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Staten Island help While watching the results of Hurricane Sandy that leveled Staten Island, I wondered why more attention has not been paid to the New York citizens who lived on this island. I know that they were told to evacuate their homes and move to areas that would be considered more safe. Just because they were told to evacuate their homes does not mean that they had the ability to follow these instructions. You must remember that they were on an island with no way that a mass evacuation could have handled the number of residents that made this area their home. With all of this understood there is no amount of talk that can provide food and shelter for these Americans. They need action now, not tomorrow and not next week because these New York residents simply have no basic transportation, food or shelter.

Come out and enjoy the group and the friendly competition. Just bring your camera and your smile. Spotlight on Veterans DayOn Sunday, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, Cherrywood will honor those who sacrificed for their nation. Veterans Day honors each and every veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces regardless of whether they served in war or during peace time, whether they were infantry grunts, mess cooks, mail handlers, sailors, marine, pilots or airmen. In President Eisenhowers words in formalizing Veterans Day in 1954, Let us solemnly remember the sacrifices of all those who served valiantly and selflessly to preserve our heritage and freedom. Veterans Day arose out of Armistice Day, first celebrated in 1919, to remember those who paid the last full measure of sacrifice in World War I. In most World War I allied nations, it is celebrated as Remembrance Day. Following World War II, a movement originating in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1947 led to Congressional action in 1954 to change the focus from the World War I armistice to recognition of the service of all veterans. However, the traditional focus of national Veterans Day services was preserved at the Tomb of the Unknown in Arlington National Cemetery with the laying of a Presidential wreath. The first tomb was dedicated to Armistice Day 1921 followed by World War II and Korean unknowns in 1958. A Vietnam unknown was later identified and the empty crypt is now dedicated to those missing in action. The unrelenting passage of time forces the passing of the baton to each succeeding generation, consequently there is less and less focus on those who served in World War II, Korea, Southeast Asia and even the first Gulf War as the baton is passed to those veterans who serve and served in the Global War on Terror and have paid the price of 6000-plus killed and thousands more maimed. Thus, I think it important that before our collective memories completely erase them from history, we pay a tribute to the veterans of the nations longest war, some might say a completely forgotten or even a non-war, the Cold War. The veterans of the Cold War are largely ignored and even forgotten by the public, the government and even many of their brothers in arms who believe the only good war is a got one! Friday, November 9, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, November 9, 2012 www.smcitizen.com own people are left to fend for themselves. There are areas in New York and New Jersey that have been totally wiped out with these people losing everything. Where is our military that could build platforms and set up tents as emergency shelters along with mess tents to supply food for these people? During wars that our country engages in we could supply our troops with shelter, food supplies and medical assistance anywhere in the world. Why cant these areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy be declared a war zone and build these tent cities wherever necessary? Jerry Segovis Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 I am not the kind of person looking for a handout or anything free. When somebody offers me something free, I know there is a catch somewhere, and as long as I still have a slice of sanity in my noodle soup, nobody is going to catch me. Before I had made this a hard and fast rule the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I took a company up on their free offer of three days and two nights in a marvelous resort hotel. All you have to do, the person on the phone said, is listen to a short presentation. That short presentation took exactly three days and two nights. By the time we were done and ready to come home we were exhausted. How many times can you say no, and for it to register in the person to which it is directed? Obviously, from our experience, there is no answer to that question. I learned my lesson and have never accepted a free Free is as free gives and I dont like free, usually O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder offer since. Not that I have not had the opportunity, I just am highly suspicious of anything that contains that five-letter word free. Recently an event happened that has upgraded my thoughts concerning the word free. The day began as usual, which included a trip to the local grocery store and the bakery department for the obligatory Apple Fritter. A day without an Apple Fritter is a day I do not want to get out of bed. This one thing drives me out of my cozy bed in the morning and puts a little bit of getup in my get-along. I am not sure if an Apple Fritter a day will keep the doctor away, but who am I to challenge such likelihood? Personally, I would rather err on the side of the Apple Fritter. It all began years ago when my wife insisted I add more fruit to my diet. It was then I discovered the marvelous delicacy of the old-fashioned Apple Fritter. Just the word apple makes it a fruit in my mind. My wife and I have had very few disputes during the almost half-century of our relationship but this is one. She feels an Apple Fritter does not qualify as a fruit. I think she is rather fruity along this line myself; however, I am too wise and love life too much to actually say it to her. What I say under my breath and behind her back does me no harm whatsoever. My argument is that there is enough Apple in an Apple Fritter to qualify it for a fruit. I am not sure who has won this argument, but I am not going to challenge it. Rather, I will enjoy the fruity nature of my delectable Apple Fritter. Getting back to the incident that has changed my mind about free. I entered the grocery store, walked back to the bakery department and selected a freshly baked Apple Fritter. It was about all I can do to keep from eating it between the bakery department and the cashier counter. We all have our crosses to bear, and this is one of mine. I need to wait until I get to my office where I can leisurely enjoy one of the great delicacies of life. Also, no one can see me eat it, especially, you know who. I got to the checkout counter and handed over, reluctantly, my Apple Fritter in order to pay for it. It is the best $.79 I spend every day. Then the inevitable happened. Im sorry, the young lady behind the counter said, but there is something wrong with this Apple Fritter. Boy, did she have my attention. I was about to give her a piece of my mind. Who did she think she was? My wife? I wanted to give her a spicy lecture on the importance of the Apple Fritter in question. In my mind, there was nothing wrong with this Apple Fritter. I do not often get my dander up. After all, I do not have the hair I used to have, so it is rather difficult to do it. This rather came close for me. As I stood there steaming, she looked at me and said, Im sorry, the pricing is wrong on this Apple Fritter. I guess the bakery department made a mistake. She then paused for a moment, did something on the cash machine and then said some words that caused me to dance in the aisles. Im sorry that this mistake happened, so according to our store policy, this Apple Fritter is free. I stood there unable to speak. All my reservations about free, went out the window. I smiled. I smiled a smile that went from one end of the store to the other. Then to make sure I understood correctly I asked her, Are you sure this is free? When she answered in the affirmative, I gently picked up that free Apple Fritter and departed from the store not afraid for anybody to see my Apple Fritter and me together. The only other free offer I ever accept is from God. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23 KJV). Gods gift carries with it marvelous compensations both now and eternally. Gods free is free indeed. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

O n Saturday, Nov. 10 from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., the Veterans Club will kick off the Veterans Day weekend with a model show in the clubhouse. More than 250 assorted plastic models of aircraft, ships, tanks, artillery pieces and various military vehicles will be sold for $1 to $5 each to support the clubs many activities. On Sunday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m., the annual Veterans Day program will begin. Our Color Guard will present the flags, guest speaker Col. Tom P Currie Jr., USAF (Ret.) will give the keynote address and honors will be presented to all branches of service including, for the first time, the Merchant Marine.

Lemonade and iced tea will be provided, but guests are welcome to bring their own liquid refreshments to enjoy. While the Veterans Day service is free to the public, the picnic tickets are $7 each. Geri has tickets in the office and a limited number of tickets will be available at the door.Veteran Poppy DayVeterans Day is Sunday, Nov. 11. In honor and in recognition of that, CMSgt. Fred OHern, USAF (Ret.) contributed the following: The Poppy movement was inspired by Canadian Army Lt. Col. John McCraes famous poem, penned after the Battle of Ypres in May 1915. In Flanders Fields the poppies blow, Between the crosses row on row, That mark our lace and in the sky, The larks, still bravely singing fly, Scarce heard amid the guns below We are the Dead, short days ago. We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe, To you from failing hands we throw, The torch, be yours to hold it high. If you break faith with us who die. We shall not sleep, though poppies grow, In Flanders fields. Originally, fresh poppies were distributed by the Franco-American Childrens League to benefit children in the devastated areas of France and Belgium. In 1922, the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States arranged to get poppies from France. This took too long and subsequently disabled, hospitalized and aging veterans were enlisted to make paper poppies and ship them to VFW members for distribution. The VFW pays veterans in VA and state veterans hospitals and homes to make and ship these symbolic flowers for Veterans Day and Memorial Day Buddy Poppy drives. All proceeds from the drive are used to fund patriotic activities and the needs of deserving veterans. This is a tradition shared with our allies from World War I, Britain, Australia, France, Belgium, New Zealand and the Netherlands. VFW Post 4781 will conduct a Buddy Poppy drive at various major stores in the area including Publix, Winn Dixie, Walmart, Gander Mount and IHOP on Nov. 9 and 10. We urge all patriots to get their Buddy Poppy and proudly wear it on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.Newcomers welcomedNewcomers Pat and Larry Lee, Kathy Brown and Joe Cignac (pictured) were greeted on Saturday, Nov. 3, by our Welcoming Committee.

BY RICH LOWRY Eventually social science works its way around to confirming eternal verities. So it is with gratitude. An article in a psychological journal a few years ago noted that "throughout history, religious, theological and philosophical treatises have viewed gratitude as integral to well-being." Psychology has recently worked to quantify the wisdom of the ages and confirmed -sure enough -it was correct. A raft of recent research has established that grateful people are happier people. They are less depressed and less stressed. They are less likely to envy others and more likely to want to share. They even sleep better. As the journal article put it, empirical work "has suggested gratitude is as strongly correlated with wellbeing as are other positive traits, and has suggested that this relationship is causal." Gratitude constitutes what philosopher David Hume called a "calm passion." It doesn't have the theatrical potential of anger and hatred, or courage and sacrifice. Nonetheless, there's a reason it has been considered central to the good life and a good society by all major religions and by thinkers stretching from Cicero ("Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others") to Oprah ("Whenever you can't think of something to be grateful for, remember your breath"). Gratitude acknowledges our dependence on others and the debt we owe because of it. Grateful people want, somehow, to return the favor of their undeserved windfall. It is a sentiment that, in the jargon, is "pro-social." A leading figure in its study, Michael McCullough of the University of Miami, maintains that it binds us to others beyond the ties of family and of commercial transactions. Gratitude is at the root of patriotism, of the impulse to preserve and improve our patrimony. In a culture that tends to celebrate self-glorification, gratitude points us beyond our own demands and discontents. It inclines us to see all around us a world of gifts. What did we do to inherit a country that is free and prosperous? To deserve Charlie Parker or Mark Twain? To build the Golden Gate Bridge or the Chrysler Building? To measure up to the beauties of the Catholic mass or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Or simply to prove worthy of traffic lights and potable water? Without gratitude, William F. Buckley Jr. wrote, "We are left with the numbing, benumbing thought that we owe nothing to Plato and Aristotle, nothing to the prophets who wrote the Bible, nothing to the generations who fought for freedoms activated in the Bill of Rights." He called for "a rebirth of gratitude for those who have cared for us, living and, mostly, dead. The high moments of our way of life are their gifts to us." John Adams captured the grateful attitude when he acknowledged the hardships of this vale of tears while celebrating it all the same (if in anachronistic language): "Griefs upon griefs! Disappointments upon disappointments. What then? This is a gay, merry world notwithstanding."

Friday, November 9, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, November 9, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.com The OTOW Lions Club conducted its ever-popular spaghetti dinner on Sunday, Nov. 4 at the Health and Recreation Ballroom. The meal was catered by Sammys Fine Italian Restaurant, with the exception of dessert, which was provided by Pink Rolling Pin. Club members served as waiters/waitresses. The meal consisted of a salad, spaghetti and meatballs, ice tea or coffee, and a dessert. A cash bar was available through the H&R Pub for those who desired a glass of wine or a mixed drink to go with their meal. Entertainment included the very popular Western Sidekick Dancers. Karaoke by George proved popular as several singers entertained the diners. A large flat-screen TV served as the ultimate prize for those who bought raffle tickets. Robert Redden was the proud recipient of this excellent offering. All proceeds of this fundraiser went to Interfaith Food for Children Backpack program. Kanapaha On Wednesday, Nov. 14, members of the Native Plant Group will drive to Kanapaha Botanical Gardens in Gainesville for a 2 p.m. guided tour. We will meet at 1 p.m. in the parking lot of Health & Recreation to decide on carpools. Any resident interested in going on this trip, may call Margitta at 352-8730731 for details.

T he Marion Landing Fall Sale will be held on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 8 a.m. to noon in the Lifestyle Center. Residents should drop off their donated items on Friday, Nov. 16, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Previously known as the Bazaar, admission to the Fall Sale is free and open to the public. There will be special sections designated for jewelry, books, homemade baked goods, plants, sports equipment and tools, along with tables full of household items and giftware. Marion Landings Lifestyle Center is on Southwest 65th Avenue Road just across State Road 200 from Queen of Peace. Stop by theres sure to be something youve been looking for.Holiday food drive begins Nov. 13Although our community collects donations for Interfaith Emergency Services on the first Tuesday of each month, its now time to kick it into high gear with our annual food drive. This years drive begins on Nov. 13, and almost any unopened item not requiring refrigeration is welcome. Canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, cereal and peanut butter are all popular items; and hygiene products such as tooth paste and deodorant are always needed. Marion Landing has been conducting an annual food drive for many years, and Gloria and Dave Wilberg have led the effort for the past nine years, along with Mary Ann Hall and her team, who coordinate our monthly food drives. The food drive will run four weeks, so lets do our best this year and help Interfaith provide packages to needy families for the holidays. Donations may be brought to the Lifestyle Center and placed in the baskets underneath the residents mail boxes or brought to any of the Tuesday Socials through Dec. 4. All donations are very much appreciated. Blood drive needs donations The Big Red Bus will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot from on Wednesday, Nov. 21 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. to collect donations for Floridas Blood Centers, the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. Every three seconds, someone, somewhere needs blood. Thats why its imperative that we replenish our available blood supply by donating to our local blood bank. You can donate blood even if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, and you only need be cancerfree for one year. And donating blood not only helps others, but is beneficial to yourself, as well. Our blood drive coordinator Pat Wurst tells us that if you donate blood every other month, your body replenishes its own blood supply with fresh blood, and you may reduce your risk of heart attack by as much as 70 percent. This fact alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on Nov. 21. You never know when you will be the one who needs it; so if you are able, please donate and give the gift of life. Sign up on the sheet hanging on the activity wall, or see Pat and her volunteers in the lobby the day the bus is here. Remember to eat something before you donate, drink plenty of fluid and bring a photo I.D. with you. Were depending on you! Community Thanksgiving dinner Residents are able to get their tickets now for Thanksgiving Dinner, which will be served on Thursday, Nov. 22. Tickets are $6 each, and dinner includes turkey, cranberry orange relish, old fashioned cornbread dressing, homestyle mashed potatoes and gravy. When you purchase your ticket, we are asking that you sign up to bring a side dish or dessert to share. Also, anyone wishing to help sell tickets, set up, serve or clean up, please see Joanie or Diane, or sign up on the sheet posted on the Activity Wall. This is always a special day, and we hope it will be an enjoyable holiday for all. Landing Lites holiday concertTickets are also on sale for the Landing Lites Holiday Concert to be held on Saturday, Dec. 1. The concert will be a blend of 13 sacred and secular music selections. If I had to describe the program, it would be varied, said Director Floyd Hickman, and the chorus will be singing traditional music along with some contemporary. The concert features two soloists: Karen Blinkhorn, music director at Sunrise Elementary School, a third generation oboist who has performed with the Ocala Symphony Orchestra; and our own Lina Vallejo, who will sing an a capella arrangement of Ave Maria. Tickets for this program are $5 each and will be sold at Tuesday Socials and in the Activities Office during regular ticket sale hours. This is a Marion Landing holiday tradition you wont want to miss, and this years concert will be dedicated to the memory of a long-time Landing Lites member Marian Curtin. Decorating volunteers needed The sign-up sheet has been posted on the Activity Wall ready for volunteers to sign up to decorate the Lifestyle Center for the holidays. This year, decorating will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 28, from 9 a.m. to noon and continue on Friday, Nov. 30, if needed. Along with our Angel Tree and Patriotic Trees, one of the large trees in the great room is decorated with ornaments donated by residents of the community. If youre new to Marion Landing, wed love to have you bring down an ornament to place on this tree.

Its a bloodless true crime story told entirely by the victim himself. He tells us what began his waking nightmare. This journey began as I was confronted with turning 40, still not having found any real fulfillment in my life. Those four, cold gray walls of my cubicle propelled me to seek love. Whether someone was playing a joke on him or not, Paul soon found himself on the mailing list for Russian brides. How desperate or lonely did a guy have to be to buy a bride, he laughed to himself. But then he turned the pages of one issue to find gorgeous young Russian women all eager to start life in America. In Moscow he fell immediately for beauteous Natasha but it was not to be and Paul happily accepted his second choice cute and charming Talia. In the beginning the marriage seemed fairy-tale perfection. Then reality stepped in. Talia could not get any sleep with Paul in the same bed so she retired to the guest room. Then she began spending the lions share of her time at the library studying to become a doctor. Although the marriage ended, Talia first presented Paul with a son and gave him sole custody. Now that son needed a mother. Enter Audrey Munson. Still searching for a soul mate and now a mother for son Johnny, Goldman joins a dating service called Jewish Singles. He meets a twice-divorced, single mother he calls Audrey Munson (not her real name) and believes that she is the one. But within weeks he becomes suspicious. She is only a part-time wife because she must care for an ailing grandmother in another city. He begins digging and finds that Audrey is not only in love with another man but also that the man is actually her pimp. Shes a hooker and a madamand by the way theres no grandmother. Accepting that hes a real chump blind-sided by optimistic romantic notions, Paul nevertheless grows a backbone and seeks justice for himself and future men Audrey will certainly target. Enlisting the aid of Audreys ex-husbands plus an investigator and even a psychic, Goldman succeeds in drawing the attention of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the FBI and the IRS.

Oktoberfest funThe Lifestyle Center was full of Oktoberfest revelers on Saturday, Oct. 27, at the 12th annual Marion Landing Oktoberfest. The event sold out in just one week leaving residents a few weeks to anticipate another wonderful meal and live entertainment by Oscar Beauchamp of the Bavarian Oskar DJ Service. The pit crew got started prepping the day before so they could start grilling early Saturday morning; and Joe Raffony, Max Richter, Dave Rusch and Bob Fink were in charge of the grill. Lorraine Rusch, Connie Rowe, John and Lorraine Moran, Pat and Bill Wurst and Jim Abbott were the kitchen crew; and dressed in their Bavarian attire, prepped and served a great meal of grilled pork loin, Bavarian cabbage, potatoes, gravy, and beverages. Desserts of delicious homemade strudel and cake were prepared by Lynn Geltz; and you cant have a successful event without the numerous volunteers who set up, sell and take tickets, and clean up when its all done. They are Jim and Ginny Dillon, Mary and Buck Buckoski, Ken and Sharon Talbert, Dot and Rich Toneske, Lorraine and Lou Russo, Charlie Mock, Ginger Abbott, Pat Kennison, Leta Simmons, Lois Norris, Joannie Ritter, Larry Keables, Lou Caporiccio and Carolyn Salzlein.

T he Marion Landing Fall Sale will be held on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 8 a.m. to noon in the Lifestyle Center. Residents should drop off their donated items on Friday, Nov. 16, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Previously known as the Bazaar, admission to the Fall Sale is free and open to the public. There will be special sections designated for jewelry, books, homemade baked goods, plants, sports equipment and tools, along with tables full of household items and giftware. Marion Landings Lifestyle Center is on Southwest 65th Avenue Road just across State Road 200 from Queen of Peace. Stop by theres sure to be something youve been looking for.Holiday food drive begins Nov. 13Although our community collects donations for Interfaith Emergency Services on the first Tuesday of each month, its now time to kick it into high gear with our annual food drive. This years drive begins on Nov. 13, and almost any unopened item not requiring refrigeration is welcome. Canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, cereal and peanut butter are all popular items; and hygiene products such as tooth paste and deodorant are always needed. Marion Landing has been conducting an annual food drive for many years, and Gloria and Dave Wilberg have led the effort for the past nine years, along with Mary Ann Hall and her team, who coordinate our monthly food drives. The food drive will run four weeks, so lets do our best this year and help Interfaith provide packages to needy families for the holidays. Donations may be brought to the Lifestyle Center and placed in the baskets underneath the residents mail boxes or brought to any of the Tuesday Socials through Dec. 4. All donations are very much appreciated. Blood drive needs donations The Big Red Bus will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot from on Wednesday, Nov. 21 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. to collect donations for Floridas Blood Centers, the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. Every three seconds, someone, somewhere needs blood. Thats why its imperative that we replenish our available blood supply by donating to our local blood bank. You can donate blood even if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, and you only need be cancerfree for one year. And donating blood not only helps others, but is beneficial to yourself, as well. Our blood drive coordinator Pat Wurst tells us that if you donate blood every other month, your body replenishes its own blood supply with fresh blood, and you may reduce your risk of heart attack by as much as 70 percent. This fact alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on Nov. 21. You never know when you will be the one who needs it; so if you are able, please donate and give the gift of life. Sign up on the sheet hanging on the activity wall, or see Pat and her volunteers in the lobby the day the bus is here. Remember to eat something before you donate, drink plenty of fluid and bring a photo I.D. with you. Were depending on you! Community Thanksgiving dinner Residents are able to get their tickets now for Thanksgiving Dinner, which will be served on Thursday, Nov. 22. Tickets are $6 each, and dinner includes turkey, cranberry orange relish, old fashioned cornbread dressing, homestyle mashed potatoes and gravy.

Also, anyone wishing to help sell tickets, set up, serve or clean up, please see Joanie or Diane, or sign up on the sheet posted on the Activity Wall. This is always a special day, and we hope it will be an enjoyable holiday for all. Landing Lites holiday concertTickets are also on sale for the Landing Lites Holiday Concert to be held on Saturday, Dec. 1. The concert will be a blend of 13 sacred and secular music selections.

Its a bloodless true crime story told entirely by the victim himself. He tells us what began his waking nightmare. This journey began as I was confronted with turning 40, still not having found any real fulfillment in my life. Those four, cold gray walls of my cubicle propelled me to seek love. Whether someone was playing a joke on him or not, Paul soon found himself on the mailing list for Russian brides. How desperate or lonely did a guy have to be to buy a bride, he laughed to himself. But then he turned the pages of one issue to find gorgeous young Russian women all eager to start life in America. In Moscow he fell immediately for beauteous Natasha but it was not to be and Paul happily accepted his second choice cute and charming Talia. In the beginning the marriage seemed fairy-tale perfection. Then reality stepped in. Talia could not get any sleep with Paul in the same bed so she retired to the guest room. Then she began spending the lions share of her time at the library studying to become a doctor. Although the marriage ended, Talia first presented Paul with a son and gave him sole custody. Now that son needed a mother. Enter Audrey Munson. Still searching for a soul mate and now a mother for son Johnny, Goldman joins a dating service called Jewish Singles. He meets a twice-divorced, single mother he calls Audrey Munson (not her real name) and believes that she is the one. But within weeks he becomes suspicious. She is only a part-time wife because she must care for an ailing grandmother in another city. He begins digging and finds that Audrey is not only in love with another man but also that the man is actually her pimp. Shes a hooker and a madamand by the way theres no grandmother. Accepting that hes a real chump blind-sided by optimistic romantic notions, Paul nevertheless grows a backbone and seeks justice for himself and future men Audrey will certainly target. Enlisting the aid of Audreys ex-husbands plus an investigator and even a psychic, Goldman succeeds in drawing the attention of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the FBI and the IRS.

Friday, November 9, 2012 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, November 9, 2012 www.smcitizen.com BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.com The OTOW Lions Club conducted its ever-popular spaghetti dinner on Sunday, Nov. 4 at the Health and Recreation Ballroom. The meal was catered by Sammys Fine Italian Restaurant, with the exception of dessert, which was provided by Pink Rolling Pin. Club members served as waiters/waitresses. The meal consisted of a salad, spaghetti and meatballs, ice tea or coffee, and a dessert. A cash bar was available through the H&R Pub for those who desired a glass of wine or a mixed drink to go with their meal. Entertainment included the very popular Western Sidekick Dancers. Karaoke by George proved popular as several singers entertained the diners. A large flat-screen TV served as the ultimate prize for those who bought raffle tickets. Robert Redden was the proud recipient of this excellent offering. All proceeds of this fundraiser went to Interfaith Food for Children Backpack program.

O n Saturday, Nov. 10 from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., the Veterans Club will kick off the Veterans Day weekend with a model show in the clubhouse. More than 250 assorted plastic models of aircraft, ships, tanks, artillery pieces and various military vehicles will be sold for $1 to $5 each to support the clubs many activities. On Sunday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m., the annual Veterans Day program will begin. Our Color Guard will present the flags, guest speaker Col. Tom P Currie Jr., USAF (Ret.) will give the keynote address and honors will be presented to all branches of service including, for the first time, the Merchant Marine. Immediately following the ceremony, there will be a picnic lunch of hamburgers, hotdogs, side dishes and desserts. Lemonade and iced tea will be provided, but guests are welcome to bring their own liquid refreshments to enjoy. While the Veterans Day service is free to the public, the picnic tickets are $7 each. Geri has tickets in the office and a limited number of tickets will be available at the door.Veteran Poppy DayVeterans Day is Sunday, Nov. 11. In honor and in recognition of that, CMSgt. Fred OHern, USAF (Ret.) contributed the following: The Poppy movement was inspired by Canadian Army Lt. Col. John McCraes famous poem, penned after the Battle of Ypres in May 1915. In Flanders Fields the poppies blow, Between the crosses row on row, That mark our lace and in the sky, The larks, still bravely singing fly, Scarce heard amid the guns below We are the Dead, short days ago. We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe, To you from failing hands we throw, The torch, be yours to hold it high. If you break faith with us who die. We shall not sleep, though poppies grow, In Flanders fields. Originally, fresh poppies were distributed by the Franco-American Childrens League to benefit children in the devastated areas of France and Belgium. In 1922, the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States arranged to get poppies from France. This took too long and subsequently disabled, hospitalized and aging veterans were enlisted to make paper poppies and ship them to VFW members for distribution. The VFW pays veterans in VA and state veterans hospitals and homes to make and ship these symbolic flowers for Veterans Day and Memorial Day Buddy Poppy drives. All proceeds from the drive are used to fund patriotic activities and the needs of deserving veterans. This is a tradition shared with our allies from World War I, Britain, Australia, France, Belgium, New Zealand and the Netherlands. VFW Post 4781 will conduct a Buddy Poppy drive at various major stores in the area including Publix, Winn Dixie, Walmart, Gander Mount and IHOP on Nov. 9 and 10. We urge all patriots to get their Buddy Poppy and proudly wear it on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.Newcomers welcomedNewcomers Pat and Larry Lee, Kathy Brown and Joe Cignac (pictured) were greeted on Saturday, Nov. 3, by our Welcoming Committee.

BY RICH LOWRY Eventually social science works its way around to confirming eternal verities. So it is with gratitude. An article in a psychological journal a few years ago noted that "throughout history, religious, theological and philosophical treatises have viewed gratitude as integral to well-being." Psychology has recently worked to quantify the wisdom of the ages and confirmed -sure enough -it was correct. A raft of recent research has established that grateful people are happier people. They are less depressed and less stressed. They are less likely to envy others and more likely to want to share. They even sleep better. As the journal article put it, empirical work "has suggested gratitude is as strongly correlated with wellbeing as are other positive traits, and has suggested that this relationship is causal." Gratitude constitutes what philosopher David Hume called a "calm passion." It doesn't have the theatrical potential of anger and hatred, or courage and sacrifice. Nonetheless, there's a reason it has been considered central to the good life and a good society by all major religions and by thinkers stretching from Cicero ("Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others") to Oprah ("Whenever you can't think of something to be grateful for, remember your breath"). Gratitude acknowledges our dependence on others and the debt we owe because of it. Grateful people want, somehow, to return the favor of their undeserved windfall. It is a sentiment that, in the jargon, is "pro-social." A leading figure in its study, Michael McCullough of the University of Miami, maintains that it binds us to others beyond the ties of family and of commercial transactions. Gratitude is at the root of patriotism, of the impulse to preserve and improve our patrimony. In a culture that tends to celebrate self-glorification, gratitude points us beyond our own demands and discontents. It inclines us to see all around us a world of gifts. What did we do to inherit a country that is free and prosperous? To deserve Charlie Parker or Mark Twain? To build the Golden Gate Bridge or the Chrysler Building? To measure up to the beauties of the Catholic mass or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Or simply to prove worthy of traffic lights and potable water? Without gratitude, William F. Buckley Jr. wrote, "We are left with the numbing, benumbing thought that we owe nothing to Plato and Aristotle, nothing to the prophets who wrote the Bible, nothing to the generations who fought for freedoms activated in the Bill of Rights." He called for "a rebirth of gratitude for those who have cared for us, living and, mostly, dead. The high moments of our way of life are their gifts to us." John Adams captured the grateful attitude when he acknowledged the hardships of this vale of tears while celebrating it all the same (if in anachronistic language): "Griefs upon griefs! Disappointments upon disappointments. What then? This is a gay, merry world notwithstanding."

His black and white picture of a cat staring through the legs of a chair captured both the humorous look in the felines face and the emotion expressed in the knowing eyes of the subject. On Dec. 7 at 10 a.m., the Shutterbugs will again meet and have another contest. The subject for Decembers photos is Thanksgiving. We will be looking for those pictures that focus on the spirit of the season. Your pictures can be humorous, serious, carry a message or just portray beautiful colors. The only stipulation is that the photo entered must have been taken by the person submitting the photo. The Shutterbugs meet on the first Friday of each month in the library of the clubhouse and meetings are open to anyone who has an interest n photography. Come out and enjoy the group and the friendly competition. Just bring your camera and your smile. Spotlight on Veterans DayOn Sunday, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, Cherrywood will honor those who sacrificed for their nation. Veterans Day honors each and every veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces regardless of whether they served in war or during peace time, whether they were infantry grunts, mess cooks, mail handlers, sailors, marine, pilots or airmen. In President Eisenhowers words in formalizing Veterans Day in 1954, Let us solemnly remember the sacrifices of all those who served valiantly and selflessly to preserve our heritage and freedom. Veterans Day arose out of Armistice Day, first celebrated in 1919, to remember those who paid the last full measure of sacrifice in World War I. In most World War I allied nations, it is celebrated as Remembrance Day. Following World War II, a movement originating in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1947 led to Congressional action in 1954 to change the focus from the World War I armistice to recognition of the service of all veterans. However, the traditional focus of national Veterans Day services was preserved at the Tomb of the Unknown in Arlington National Cemetery with the laying of a Presidential wreath. The first tomb was dedicated to Armistice Day 1921 followed by World War II and Korean unknowns in 1958. A Vietnam unknown was later identified and the empty crypt is now dedicated to those missing in action. The unrelenting passage of time forces the passing of the baton to each succeeding generation, consequently there is less and less focus on those who served in World War II, Korea, Southeast Asia and even the first Gulf War as the baton is passed to those veterans who serve and served in the Global War on Terror and have paid the price of 6000-plus killed and thousands more maimed. Thus, I think it important that before our collective memories completely erase them from history, we pay a tribute to the veterans of the nations longest war, some might say a completely forgotten or even a non-war, the Cold War. The veterans of the Cold War are largely ignored and even forgotten by the public, the government and even many of their brothers in arms who believe the only good war is a got one!

There are areas in New York and New Jersey that have been totally wiped out with these people losing everything. Where is our military that could build platforms and set up tents as emergency shelters along with mess tents to supply food for these people? During wars that our country engages in we could supply our troops with shelter, food supplies and medical assistance anywhere in the world. Why cant these areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy be declared a war zone and build these tent cities wherever necessary? Jerry Segovis Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 I am not the kind of person looking for a handout or anything free. When somebody offers me something free, I know there is a catch somewhere, and as long as I still have a slice of sanity in my noodle soup, nobody is going to catch me. Before I had made this a hard and fast rule the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I took a company up on their free offer of three days and two nights in a marvelous resort hotel. All you have to do, the person on the phone said, is listen to a short presentation. That short presentation took exactly three days and two nights. By the time we were done and ready to come home we were exhausted. How many times can you say no, and for it to register in the person to which it is directed? Obviously, from our experience, there is no answer to that question. I learned my lesson and have never accepted a free Free is as free gives and I dont like free, usually O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder offer since. Not that I have not had the opportunity, I just am highly suspicious of anything that contains that five-letter word free. Recently an event happened that has upgraded my thoughts concerning the word free. The day began as usual, which included a trip to the local grocery store and the bakery department for the obligatory Apple Fritter. A day without an Apple Fritter is a day I do not want to get out of bed. This one thing drives me out of my cozy bed in the morning and puts a little bit of getup in my get-along. I am not sure if an Apple Fritter a day will keep the doctor away, but who am I to challenge such likelihood? Personally, I would rather err on the side of the Apple Fritter. It all began years ago when my wife insisted I add more fruit to my diet. It was then I discovered the marvelous delicacy of the old-fashioned Apple Fritter. Just the word apple makes it a fruit in my mind. My wife and I have had very few disputes during the almost half-century of our relationship but this is one. She feels an Apple Fritter does not qualify as a fruit. I think she is rather fruity along this line myself; however, I am too wise and love life too much to actually say it to her. What I say under my breath and behind her back does me no harm whatsoever. My argument is that there is enough Apple in an Apple Fritter to qualify it for a fruit. I am not sure who has won this argument, but I am not going to challenge it. Rather, I will enjoy the fruity nature of my delectable Apple Fritter. Getting back to the incident that has changed my mind about free. I entered the grocery store, walked back to the bakery department and selected a freshly baked Apple Fritter. It was about all I can do to keep from eating it between the bakery department and the cashier counter. We all have our crosses to bear, and this is one of mine. I need to wait until I get to my office where I can leisurely enjoy one of the great delicacies of life. Also, no one can see me eat it, especially, you know who. I got to the checkout counter and handed over, reluctantly, my Apple Fritter in order to pay for it. It is the best $.79 I spend every day. Then the inevitable happened. Im sorry, the young lady behind the counter said, but there is something wrong with this Apple Fritter. Boy, did she have my attention. I was about to give her a piece of my mind. Who did she think she was? My wife? I wanted to give her a spicy lecture on the importance of the Apple Fritter in question. In my mind, there was nothing wrong with this Apple Fritter. I do not often get my dander up. After all, I do not have the hair I used to have, so it is rather difficult to do it. This rather came close for me. As I stood there steaming, she looked at me and said, Im sorry, the pricing is wrong on this Apple Fritter. I guess the bakery department made a mistake. She then paused for a moment, did something on the cash machine and then said some words that caused me to dance in the aisles. Im sorry that this mistake happened, so according to our store policy, this Apple Fritter is free. I stood there unable to speak. All my reservations about free, went out the window. I smiled. I smiled a smile that went from one end of the store to the other. Then to make sure I understood correctly I asked her, Are you sure this is free? When she answered in the affirmative, I gently picked up that free Apple Fritter and departed from the store not afraid for anybody to see my Apple Fritter and me together. The only other free offer I ever accept is from God. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23 KJV). Gods gift carries with it marvelous compensations both now and eternally. Gods free is free indeed. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

PAGE 21

The Cold War (1947-1991) was so named because there was no direct military action since both sides possessed nuclear weapons and because their use would probably guarantee mutual assured destruction. (Many of us remember duck and cover drills). Rather, it featured a series of political and military skirmishes fought on the periphery, some of which broke out into hot war with client states of the various members of NATO and/or the Warsaw Pact, I.e. Korea, Southeast Asia. Probably the most memorable of these skirmishes are the Berlin Airlift, erection of the Berlin Wall, Cuban missile crisis, deployment of cruise missiles to western Europe and a little known event from the fall of 1983 Operation Able Archer. Two of these (the Cuban missile crises and Able Archer) brought the world to the threshold of all-out nuclear war. The Cold War was fought by hundreds of thousands of veterans, most of whom were drafted or draft motivated. They served in bomber and missile forces, the submarine fleet and on the trip wire lines of Western Europe and Korea. There is little appreciation for the fact that even at the height of the Southeast Asian conflict, more GIs were serving in Europe than in Southeast Asia. Thousands more served in Korea, Okinawa and Japan. Of course this does not included the missile, bomber and submarine alert forces at home. These shadow warriors stood alert away from home and family; carried out countless training drills and probed the envelope constantly testing the resolve of our primary foe. Although only infrequently subjected to direct combat the nature of the drills and the conditions under which air/seaborne/missile alerts were carried out in many cases made them just as hazardous as combat operations. There are no statistics as to the actual casualty count; however, there were more then 2,500 non-hostile deaths in West Germany between 1945 and 1975, more than the total losses in Afghanistan for a 10-year period; yet these veterans go largely unrecognized. There is no Cold War Victory Medal or campaign ribbon; those who served from 1947 to 1950, 1954 to 1961 and from 1975 to 1990 are not even eligible for the American Legion or the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Let us not forget these shadow warriors who were the victors in the Cold War! In a curious footnote to history, the Cold War would end on the weekend of Veterans Day 1989 when East Germany surrendered to the demand of its citizens for freedom and an end to the standoff between East and West and opened the Berlin Wall, much as the Armistice called for by Imperial Germany in 1918 which led to the end of hostilities. In closing, as a veteran of the Southeast Asia Conflict, I must acknowledge the 30th anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, dedicated on Nov. 13, 1982.Article by CMSgt. Fred OHern USAF (Ret.):The Veteran I raised by hand to recognize the colonel passing by The shuffling gray-hair in between, he never caught my eye But, he saw me and my salute and snapped his hand Up to his brow and straightened up, a sudden, different man. The colonel smiled, and as did I, he saw the mans mistake Well, if he thought Id saluted him, it might just serve to make His day a bit more proud as he recalls another day When he served on land, or sea, or in war far way. Was it Ardennes or on the beach, he watched his buddies die? And penned a note to their mom or sis and paused to wonder why They go the golden BB while he cam through unscathed A victory parade in 45 crowds cheered and flags they waved. But then he was forgotten, through Korea, Vietnam Nothing left heroic in a shuffling gray-haired man Waiting now alone to die, though part of him did die In mud, sand, snow or in cold German skies. And who cares for one now old and gray, with clothes illfit and in the way Of younger troops with things to do and new wars far away? But I care now as I saw change in the old mans eye and stride As he marched head high to pass me by, his head now high with pride. Perhaps when I am old and gray, some young pup third my age Will raise his hand, salute to me and never stop to gauge The time in years apart are we, but know I never swerved From duty as I saw it, and like the old man, too, I served.By John Piowatty, LtCol USAF (Ret.) This poem depicts a true incident at a USAF base hospital. Lt. Col. Piowatty as a young captain in August 1967 led a flight of F-105 Thunderchiefs against the Paul Doumer Bridge outside Hanoi, North Vietnam. In spite of intense antiaircraft fire, his flight successfully destroyed the bridge in the first use of smart bombs that are now commonplace in the military. John went on to a distinguished and colorful career.From your reporterThe column in this issue of the Citizen has been largely devoted to the veterans of our community. It is fitting that this should be as we celebrate Veterans Day on Sunday, Nov. 11. Personally, I have had the honor and privilege to walk among heroes and I here and now thank them for their service to this great country of ours. Special thanks to CMSgt.

Friday, November 9, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com T he campaign headquarters post mortem of an unsuccessful presidential candidate begins with a lament something like this: If we had carried Montana (3 electoral votes) we could have won it all. If only are sad but mildly comforting words. Every four years we get an opportunity to explain the mystery of the Electoral College. Writing this exposition for publication just after the election avoids any allegation that we intended to cause confusion and voter suppression. It is important to remember there would be no United States of America if the former colonies hadnt approved our Constitution. The new states had no intention of going out of business, particularly the smaller ones. They intended then and still insist to have a voice in Washington. Article I, Section 4 of the Constitution says the States will hold elections for Senators and Representatives. Congress can fiddle with some of the details, but the States are still in charge. Article II requires the States to participate in election of the President by having voters choose electors equal to the number of Senators and Representatives each State sends to Congress. Electors are nominated by political parties and appointed by the states. After citizens have voted, the electors cast their ballots and later transmit them to Congress to be counted. Why such a rigamarole? To preserve states rights the founders considered having state legislatures select the president. They dropped that idea because deadlocks would be likely if each state insisted on electing a favorite son or regional good ole boy. The framers of the Constitution also considered letting Congress select the president. On reconsideration they decided to fashion a system which would insulate the President from a political majority in Congress and from citizens who could be manipulated by promises and corruption. Before and after every presidential election, a few voices rise to suggest the Electoral College is outdated and should be abolished. They forget or choose to ignore that Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Fidel Castro, and Hugo Chavez were elected to power by direct votes of the people. One of my favorite national columnists, Mark Shields, wrote recently that The Electoral College Must Go. He said it is absolutely anti-democratic and all the democracies created since the end of World War II have managed to function without an electoral college. We have to disagree for the single reason that the United States is not and was not intended to be a democracy. We are a successful 225 year old constitutional republic. Would we prefer to be a European social democracy? Would we be better off? We dont think so. As one historian put it, The democracy genie was quickly put back in the bottle. Given the current state of party politics, we believe the founders had great foresight when they reasoned that the president should not be chosen by legislatures, by Congress, or by popular vote of the people. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, November 9, 2012 F or a native New Yorker, who was raised across the George Washington Bridge in New Jersey, TV watching last week was built mostly around Hurricane Sandy. There were a lot of familiar sites both shown and talked about as Manhattan, Staten Island and the Jersey Shore (the area, not the TV show) were highlighted as the areas most damaged by the wind and water, and Long Island, which had the devastating fire that swept through Breezy Point. Some held particular memories, especially New Jersey. There were two sites along the Shore (they didnt call it the beach when I was there, dont know what they do now) that brought recollections of past years. One was pictures of the town of Tuckerton, which leads to an area called Mystic Islands, where for a while in the 1960s my parents had a summer home. It was kind of nice the only time I ever drove (is that the right word?) a boat was at their home they had a small, slow-powered boat that I learned to steer, with some effort. The engine was in the back so it was backward from a car you turned the wheel to the right to go left, and so forth. It was also where I learned my young wifes dedication to family. My folks had ordered a load of gravel to spread over their sandy yard, and we were going down there on the weekend. Dad, however, got sick, and they were a day late, but with a great deal of help from my wife, we got the gravel spread ourselves so they wouldnt have to do it. I cant imagine what that area, and that house, looks like now. The other area was Island Beach. Before we were married, my wife, her sister and I went down to Island Beach, crossing over the Toms River Bridge. Now Im reading about all the devastation in that area. On Staten Island, I had a great aunt who lived in St. George, on a hill overlooking the ferry slip. I assume that she is long gone, but that area probably got hit by winds, mostly. It was way too high to have a surge. I watched with interest as the news showed a ferry coming in as service was resumed, but they never showed the view of Staten Island from the ferry, which I would have liked to see. We always took the ferry then there was no Verrazano Bridge, I dont believe, and it was too far to drive south in Jersey to cross the existing bridge. I wrote a friend in northern New Jersey, and she responded that her area, about 15 miles west of Manhattan, had some wind damage and no power, but she and her family were OK. I thought it was kind of ironic how, many years ago, we moved to Florida, where you have to be wary of hurricanes, but here we were escaping with little effect while the New York area was suffering. All my relatives have moved out of New Jersey, so there werent many others to contact. My old high school put a notice on Facebook that classes were canceled at some point. Anytime people ask you to help the Red Cross, even a small amount can help. If anything, we know how to survived hurricanes and live with the aftermath the people in New York really havent got that experience. You can plan for all sorts of things in life, but when Mother Nature decides to throw you a curve, theres not much you can do about it. Thats why, at the beginning of hurricane season each year, were reminding you to be prepared. After all, you never know.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Y es, tis the season for, well, you know, scams and thieves. A couple of weeks ago, our sheriffs substation investigated incidents at Walmart, where car windows were smashed in during some smash and grab attempts. As of this writing, no suspects have been caught. There are some precautions that everyone should take. The most obvious is not to put things that you buy in your vehicle, where they are visible to the public, and then leave your vehicle to go into another store, or a restaurant, or to do some chores. When you buy items at the store, if you cant put them out of sight in a trunk or somewhere like that, go straight home. Take your items into your house. Dont put your car in jeopardy of being broken into. Big parking lots are the perfect spots for thieves. Its easy for them to blend in with crowds, wait until its clear, and then quickly get away with your items. But other areas are also vulnerable. The other thing we have to be aware of is the people who try some scams against honest people. There are so many that its impossible to list them all, so heres a simple list of things to be aware of. Never give out personal information on the phone to someone you dont know if you didnt initiate the call. That includes obvious things like Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, and so forth, but also simple things like your address and, yes, even your name. Some of these people make several phone calls at once, and talk to the first person that answers. If they have to ask your name, just tell them, Hey, you called me. If you dont know who you called, good bye. Never invite anyone into your home unless youve initiated the visit (repairmen, etc.) and never, no matter what, leave them alone to have the run of your house. Never, ever, send money to anyone you dont know, even if they tell you its a good faith payment for a prize you won. And if that person says theyre a relative, do some checking before you send the money (the grandson stuck in Panama scam). Remember, you cant win a sweepstakes that you didnt enter. If youre told that you won, hang up. Finally, its an old saying, but if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Protect yourself, your purchases and your money, and youll have a much happier holiday. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Staten Island help While watching the results of Hurricane Sandy that leveled Staten Island, I wondered why more attention has not been paid to the New York citizens who lived on this island. I know that they were told to evacuate their homes and move to areas that would be considered more safe. Just because they were told to evacuate their homes does not mean that they had the ability to follow these instructions. You must remember that they were on an island with no way that a mass evacuation could have handled the number of residents that made this area their home. With all of this understood there is no amount of talk that can provide food and shelter for these Americans. They need action now, not tomorrow and not next week because these New York residents simply have no basic transportation, food or shelter.

BY MICHAEL W. GROCHOWSKI November 11 is more than just a national holiday; Veterans Day is a time to honor the men and women who risk their lives to protect our freedom. We at Social Security ask you to join us in saluting the men and women of the armed forces. Be sure to say thank you to a veteran on this important day. For those who return home with injuries, it will be our turn to help them. If you know any wounded veterans, please let them know about Social Securitys Wounded Warriors website. You can find it at www.socialsecurity.gov/woundedwarriors. The Wounded Warriors website answers a number of commonly asked questions, and shares other useful information about disability benefits, including how veterans can receive expedited processing of disability claims. It is important to note that benefits available through Social Security are different than those from the Department of Veterans Affairs and require a separate application. The expedited process is used for military service members who become disabled while on active military service on or after October 1, 2001, regardless of where the disability occurs. Even active duty military who continue to receive pay while in a hospital or on medical leave should consider applying for disability benefits if they are unable to work due to a disabling condition. Active duty status and receipt of military pay does not necessarily prevent payment of Social Security disability benefits. Receipt of military payments should never stop someone from applying for disability benefits from Social Security. A person cannot receive Social Security disability benefits while engaging in substantial work for pay or profit. However, the work activity is the controlling factor and not the amount of pay the person receives or military duty status. Learn more by visiting www.socialsecurity.gov/woundedwarriors. We at Social Security thank all veterans and members of the armed services for all that they do not only on Veterans Day, but every day of the year.Michael W.

T he week is Give Wildlife A Brake, a program to increase the awareness of motorists, stressing that defensive driving can benefit people as well as animals crossing the road. Noah was the first person to give animals a break when he loaded them on the ark. All went well until four gnus came up the gangplank. Their handler explained, You see, first theres the good gnus and then theres the bad gnus. Obviously, Noah didnt accept the bad gnus. If Noah had lived in the United States today he would have had bad news. When he couldnt finish the ark in the time that God had given him, Noah complained to God, First, I had to get a construction permit, and I had to hire an engineering firm to redraw the plans to conform with the building codes. Then I got into a fight with OSHA claimed the ark needed a sprinkler system and floatation devices. My neighbor objected, claiming I was violating zoning ordinances by building the ark in my front yard, so I had to get a variance from the city planning commission. Then, I had problems getting enough wood for the ark, because there was a ban on cutting trees to protect the Spotted Owl. I finally convinced the U.S. Forest Service that I really needed the wood to save the owls. However, the Fish and Wildlife Service wouldnt let me take the two owls. The carpenters went on strike. I had to negotiate a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board before anyone would do any work. When I started rounding up the animals, an animal rights group sued me. They objected to my taking only two of each kind aboard. Meanwhile, the EPA notified me that I could not complete the Ark without filing an environmental impact statement on Your proposed flood. They didnt take very kindly to the idea that they had no jurisdiction over the conduct of the Creator of the Universe. Then, the Army Corps of Engineers demanded a map of the proposed flood plain. I sent them a globe. I am trying to resolve a complaint filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that I am practicing discrimination by not taking atheists aboard. The IRS has seized my assets, claiming that Im building the ark in preparation to flee the country to avoid paying taxes. I just got a notice from the state that I owe them some kind of user tax and failed to register the ark as a recreational water craft. And finally, the ACLU got the courts to issue an injunction against further construction of the Ark, stating that since God is flooding the earth, its a religious event, and, therefore unconstitutional. God said to Noah, Forget about building the ark. Noah looked up hopefully. You mean youre not going to destroy the earth, Lord? No, He said sadly. I dont have to. The government already has. Band aid The Department of the Interior has changed the metal bands used to tag migratory birds. The bands had the address of the Washington Biological Survey, abbreviated as Wash. Biol. Surv. until the agency received a letter from an unhappy camper: Dear Sirs: While camping last week, I shot one of your birds. I think it was a crow. I followed the cooking instructions on the leg tag and want to tell you it tasted horrible. The bands are now marked Fish & Wildlife Service.Wild lifeUtah wildlife officials are concerned for the safety of a man dressed as a goat in a herd of goats. I kid you not. My wife and I were watching a wildlife program about the cheetah. I said, You know why theyre endangered, dont you? She nodded. Of course, Cheetahs never prosper. This wildlife book you sold me is nothing but pictures of animals. Biologists have recently produced immortal frogs by removing their vocal cords. They cant croak.Hop high A kangaroo kept getting out of his zoo enclosure. The zoo officials put up a ten-foot fence. He was out the next morning, just roaming around the zoo. A twenty-foot fence was put up. Again he got out. When the fence was forty feet high, a camel in the next enclosure asked the kangaroo, How high do you think theyll go? The kangaroo said, About a thousand feet, unless somebody locks the gate at night.

S to ensure the wise use and safety of our nation s groundwa ter ? -K e v in O rr, Baton Rouge, L A Keeping fresh water safe and abundant is a challenge for all societies. In the U.S., about half of the countrys drinking water comes from groundwater sources. Many rural areas derive all of their drinking water from groundwater, which also provides 40 percent of the irrigation needs of American farmers. While underground aquifers may at one point have seemed limitless, huge demand for water (especially in arid areas like the Southwest) means that groundwater reserves are precious and need to be carefully managed with conservation in mind. Also, groundwater is easily contaminated by any number of common man-made products like gasoline, oil, road salts, pesticides, fertilizers and other chemicals. Management of specific water supplies is decentralizedlocal and regional water authorities manage supplies for municipalities and counties around the countrybut oversight comes from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as mandated by the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act. Enacted in 1972, the Clean Water Act addresses water pollution in general and requires everyone, but especially large water users including large industrial and agricultural operations, to deal with their water inflows and outflows in a responsible, non-polluting manner. Meanwhile, 1974s Safe Drinking Water Act requires the EPA to set standards for drinking water quality that the 150,000 public water entities across the country must meet. Third party laboratories provide detailed analyses to ensure that local supplies live up to the EPAs expectations. These laws work together to keep groundwater supplies safe, but environmentalists would like to see both strengthened substantially in the face of drought-inducing global warming and other threats. While regulation and enforcement of industry and agriculture are important for protecting our limited groundwater supplies, consumers also must play a role. The Groundwater Foundation, a Nebraska-based non-profit working to educate people and inspire action to ensure sustainable, clean groundwater for future generations, suggests taking short showers, shutting off the faucet while brushing teeth and shaving, running full loads of dishes and laundry, checking for leaky PHOTO BY RON RATNERInternational Games Day Saturday was International Games Day all over the world.

But it all will pay off down the line. Things ease up in time for weekend fun with family and/or friends. TAURU S (A pril 2 0 to May 2 0 ) Your genuine concern for others could prompt you to promise more than you can deliver. Its best to modify your plans now, before you wind up overcommitted later. GE M INI ( May 21 to J une 2 0 ) A situation that seems simple at first glance needs a more thorough assessment before you give it your OK. Dig deeper for information that might be hidden from view. C AN C ER (J une 21 to J uly 22) Careful: Right now, things might not be quite what they appear. Even the intuitive Crab could misread the signs. Get some solid facts before you act on your suspicions. LE O (J uly 23 to A ug 22) Your energy levels are high, allowing you to complete those unfinished tasks before you take on a new project. A social invitation could come from an unlikely source. V IRG O (A ug 23 to Sept 22) You might think youre helping, but unless youre asked for a critique, dont give it. If you are asked, watch what you say. Your words should be helpful, not hurtful. LI B RA ( Sept 23 to Oct 22) Your attempt at mediating disputes might meet some opposition at first. But once youre shown to be fair and impartial, resistance soon gives way to cooperation. SCO R P I O ( Oct 23 to N ov 21) Go ahead. Reward yourself for helping settle a disturbing workplace situation. On another note: A personal relationship might be moving to a higher level. S AGITTARIU S (N ov 22 to Dec 21) A sudden change of heart by a colleague might create some momentary uncertainty. But stay with your original decision and, if necessary, defend it. C A P RI CO RN ( Dec 22 to J an 19) Rely on a combination of your sharp instincts along with some really intense information-gathering to help you make a possibly life-changing decision. AQUARIU S (J an 2 0 to Fe b. 18) Instead of worrying if that new person in your life will stay or leave, spend all that energy on strengthening your relationship so it becomes walkout resistant. P I SC E S ( Fe b. 19 to March 2 0 ) A sudden financial dry spell could reduce your cash flow almost to a trickle. But by conserving more and spending less, youll get through the crunch in good shape.

Likewise, the group advocates that consumers recycle used motor oils, limit the amount of fertilizer and pesticides used on plants, lawns and gardens, and generally reduce household chemical use. And leftover chemicals should be disposed of at hazardous waste collection sites (find one near you at earth911.com), not down the drain or into the gutter. Another way to help is to initiate a Source Water Protection process, which involves locating local groundwater sources and identifying ways to protect and conserve them. Anyone interested in doing so can download the Groundwater Foundations free Source Water Assessment and Protection Workshop Guide, which has detailed information about a number of source water protection strategies and additional information on areas where the Safe Drinking Water Act and Clean Water Act intersect. Funding for the guide was provided by the EPAs Office of Groundwater and Drinking Water, which considers it a must-read for officials, policymakers and activists deliberating land use and water quality issues.

Ginny Bateman Portland OR Western burrowing owls (Athene cunicularia) are tiny, long-legged members of the owl family, native to the Americas and preferring open landscapes where they can dig new holes or use existing ones (such as abandoned prairie dog, skunk or armadillo homes) to nest and rear their young. Unlike most other owl species, these small but charismatic birds are more often seen out and about during daylight hours, but they are most active and do their primary feeding at night, preferring a diet of small rodents and large insects. Once a common species in California and across North America, the Western burrowing owl has become a rarer and rarer sight over the last three decades given habitat loss and other environmental perils the bird faces. Biologists consider the bird an indicator of wider ecosystem health, so if its population numbers are healthy then local ecosystems are likely thriving. But these days the bird is endangered in Canada and threatened in Mexico, is a state endangered species in Colorado, and is considered a species of special concern in Florida and most of the western U.S. It is also listed on the International Union for Conservation of Natures (IUCNs) international Red List of endangered and threatened species (albeit as a species of Least Concern in comparison with others in more dire straits). A group of dedicated birders, conservationists, biologists and concerned citizens in San Franciscos East Bay came together to protect dwindling burrowing owl populations locally but ended up creating a movement that spans the entire North American continent. Their group, the Burrowing Owl Conservation Network (BOCN) believes that burrowing owls are vital to maintaining healthy, functioning ecosystems, and as such is working on several fronts to help protect habitat and reverse the animals population slide. First and foremost, BOCN works to conserve habitat for burrowing owls in California and beyond, including constructing artificial burrows to help re-establish burrowing owl colonies while larger ecosystem restoration efforts are underway. Teaching children and communities about ways they can help protect and improve burrowing owl habitat is another important part of BOCNs work. Other ways the group helps the owls is by advocating for legislation and policy changes that encourage conservation of habitat, networking with like-minded individuals and institutions, and conducting field and laboratory research to increase understanding about how to help burrowing owls and create habitat conditions ideal for their survival. The fact that burrowing owl populations in other parts of the world are rebounding gives hope to BOCN and other wildlife advocates and environmentalists. The birds are common and widespread in Central and South America, where they inhabit fields and even sometimes parks in urban areas. Whether the birds can replicate their success in Latin America up north remains to be seen. As for what readers can do to help, learning about the behavior, biology and habitat needs of wild animals like the burrowing owl is a sure way to develop respect for natures inhabitants and a lifelong willingness to protect them. And nothing beats witnessing burrowing owls go about their rounds. Seeing them in the wild is enough to convince anyone that they are worth fighting to protect.

The gift is a box of Indian River delicious fruits packed in different assortments of seedless navel oranges and grapefruits. That special arrangement you select will be delivered directly to the recipient of your choice at the time you prefer. Best of all, you can avoid the hassle of holiday shopping and wrapping. We do it all with an unconditional guarantee. Each and every citrus is hand selected and carefully packed to ensure that they arrive in prime condition. Please call Stan at 352873-3433 or Phil at 352-3048184 for order forms. Kiwanis is a nonprofit organization that contributes all income to service projects such as the Salvation Army, Florida Center for the blind, Terrific kids, Camp Kiwanis, Sheltering Arms for homeless children, and Shands pediatric unit. We also participate in Meals on Wheels to assist the homebound. Our meetings feature an interesting speaker every week as well as a good time. Anyone interested in the club may visit any Wednesday morning at 8 a.m. for coffee and good fellowship. Meetings are at the Bank of the Ozarks in Friendship Shopping Cendelay the Sheriffs Office transition efforts for 30 days in view of the pending FDLE investigation. Commissioner Bailey has promised that FDLE will conduct an expedited investigation, Into what, however, isnt known. Meanwhile, other local candidates, almost all Republicans, celebrated victories in the election. In the race for school superintendent, George Tomyn out distanced Diana Greene, 58 percent to 41 percent. Another countywide election saw Wes Wilcox top Judge Cochran, 59 percent to 40 percent, in the race for Supervisor of Elections. Wilcox is already a veteran of the local office. The Marion County Commission will have two new members when it reorganizes. In the only real contested race on Tuesday, Earl Arnett defeated Jessica Hadley, 55 percent to 44 percent, and will replace Charlie Stone, who ran unopposed for a State House seat. Incumbent Stan McClain and newcomer David Moore easily defeated write-in hopefuls. Both were winners in the primary, with Moore ousting incumbent Mike Amsden. In some other races affecting Marion County, Ted Yoho easily beat two opponents to win the U.S. House District 3 race. In the primary, Yoho ousted longtime incumbent Cliff Stearns. In U.S. House District 5, incumbent Democrat Corrine Brown got 70 percent of the vote to win, although in Marion County Republican LeAnne Kolb was the top vote-getter. In U.S. House District 11, incumbent Richard Nugent defeated David Werder by getting 64 percent of the vote. In nearby Florida House districts, Keith Perry retained his seat over Andrew Morey, incumbent Jimmy Smith defeated well-known challenger Nancy Argenziano, and Stone and Dennis Baxley won without opposition. In the only local Florida Senate race, Dorothy Hukill defeated Frank Bruno in District 8. Charlie Dean was re-elected without opposition.

More photos, Page 28. Nearly 2,000 students from public schools across Marion County will participate in Marion Countys official Veterans Day Program set for Monday, Nov. 12. This is the sixth year the school district has presented Marion Countys official Veterans Day ceremony. The event takes place at the Ocala / Marion County Veterans Memorial Park (Southeast Fort King Street and 25th Avenue, Ocala) at 11 a.m. and is the official Veterans Day Ceremony for the park. Superintendent of Schools Jim Yancey begins the ceremony, with students from various schools providing music including Lake Weir and West Port High schools, Dr. N.H. Jones, Hammett Bowen, and Maplewood Elementary schools, and Hillcrest school. Students will recognize local veterans for their service, and local families whove lost loved ones to military service will present a memorial wreath at the parks monument. Junior ROTC (Reserve Officers Training Corps) units from Belleview, Dunnellon, Forest, Lake Weir, North Marion, Vanguard, and West Port High schools, along with Francis Marion Military Academy, will participate. The Hammett Bowen Elementary color guard will also take part. A US Marines Honor Guard from Orlando will provide a military gun salute and post the colors for the ceremony. Pilots from the Leeward Air Ranch War-birds will fly over the park in military formation. The public is encouraged to attend the ceremony. Veterans ceremony is Monday PHOTO BY RON RATNERLaw enforcement appreciation The 17th annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Barbecue, presented by The Florida Thorobred Fillies, was held at the Southeastern Livestock Pavilion.

Blair wins; FDLE delays transition FILE PHOTO BY JIM CLARKChris Blair is shown earlier this year at a meeting of the State Road 200 Coalition. BY JIM CLARK Editor Just when you thought things had settled down in the Marion County sheriffs race, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement stepped in to add some confusion.. In the hottest race of the local election, Blair defeated Bernie DeCastro, 73 percent to 26 percent. It has been a roller coaster ride for Blair, who lost in the Republican primary to Dan Kuhn, who dropped out of the race after a scandal. GOP officials decided to put Blair back in position to win, but ballots had already been printed with Kuhns name, so a vote for Kuhn meant a vote for Blair. DeCastro, from the Constitution Party, tried to get the early votes cast before Kuhns withdrawal thrown out, but a judge ruled against him. Blair then celebrated the win Tuesday night and was prepared to work with Sheriff Ed Dean, who is retiring, on the transition. But along comes the FDLE. In a brief, pointed statement Wednesday morning, Dean said, I congratulate Chris Blair on his election. I understand the need for an orderly transition of the office and I was prepared to begin this process. However, I have been requested this morning by Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey to West Marion Hospital CEO to speakThe State Road 200 Coalition will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, Nov. 12, at the Collins Health Resource Center, Building 300, Suite 303, TimberRidge Medical Park, on Southwest 110th Street off State Road 200 in Ocala.

Likewise, the group advocates that consumers recycle used motor oils, limit the amount of fertilizer and pesticides used on plants, lawns and gardens, and generally reduce household chemical use. And leftover chemicals should be disposed of at hazardous waste collection sites (find one near you at earth911.com), not down the drain or into the gutter. Another way to help is to initiate a Source Water Protection process, which involves locating local groundwater sources and identifying ways to protect and conserve them. Anyone interested in doing so can download the Groundwater Foundations free Source Water Assessment and Protection Workshop Guide, which has detailed information about a number of source water protection strategies and additional information on areas where the Safe Drinking Water Act and Clean Water Act intersect. Funding for the guide was provided by the EPAs Office of Groundwater and Drinking Water, which considers it a must-read for officials, policymakers and activists deliberating land use and water quality issues.CONTACTS: Groundwater Foundation, www.groundwater.org; EPA Office of Groundwater and Drinking Water, www.epa.gov/aboutepa/ow.html#ground.Dear E arthTalk: W hat is the Burrowing Owl Conservation N etwork and why is it so important to put so much effort into saving one species? Ginny Bateman, Portland, OR Western burrowing owls (Athene cunicularia) are tiny, long-legged members of the owl family, native to the Americas and preferring open landscapes where they can dig new holes or use existing ones (such as abandoned prairie dog, skunk or armadillo homes) to nest and rear their young. Unlike most other owl species, these small but charismatic birds are more often seen out and about during daylight hours, but they are most active and do their primary feeding at night, preferring a diet of small rodents and large insects. Once a common species in California and across North America, the Western burrowing owl has become a rarer and rarer sight over the last three decades given habitat loss and other environmental perils the bird faces. Biologists consider the bird an indicator of wider ecosystem health, so if its population numbers are healthy then local ecosystems are likely thriving. But these days the bird is endangered in Canada and threatened in Mexico, is a state endangered species in Colorado, and is considered a species of special concern in Florida and most of the western U.S. It is also listed on the International Union for Conservation of Natures (IUCNs) international Red List of endangered and threatened species (albeit as a species of Least Concern in comparison with others in more dire straits). A group of dedicated birders, conservationists, biologists and concerned citizens in San Franciscos East Bay came together to protect dwindling burrowing owl populations locally but ended up creating a movement that spans the entire North American continent. Their group, the Burrowing Owl Conservation Network (BOCN) believes that burrowing owls are vital to maintaining healthy, functioning ecosystems, and as such is working on several fronts to help protect habitat and reverse the animals population slide. First and foremost, BOCN works to conserve habitat for burrowing owls in California and beyond, including constructing artificial burrows to help re-establish burrowing owl colonies while larger ecosystem restoration efforts are underway. Teaching children and communities about ways they can help protect and improve burrowing owl habitat is another important part of BOCNs work. Other ways the group helps the owls is by advocating for legislation and policy changes that encourage conservation of habitat, networking with like-minded individuals and institutions, and conducting field and laboratory research to increase understanding about how to help burrowing owls and create habitat conditions ideal for their survival. The fact that burrowing owl populations in other parts of the world are rebounding gives hope to BOCN and other wildlife advocates and environmentalists. The birds are common and widespread in Central and South America, where they inhabit fields and even sometimes parks in urban areas. Whether the birds can replicate their success in Latin America up north remains to be seen. As for what readers can do to help, learning about the behavior, biology and habitat needs of wild animals like the burrowing owl is a sure way to develop respect for natures inhabitants and a lifelong willingness to protect them. And nothing beats witnessing burrowing owls go about their rounds. Seeing them in the wild is enough to convince anyone that they are worth fighting to protect.CONTACTS: BOCN, www.burrowingowlconservation.org; IUCN Red List, www.iucnredlist.org.E arthTalk is written and edited by Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss and is a registered trademark of E The E nvironmental Magaz ine ( www emagaz ine. com).

But it all will pay off down the line. Things ease up in time for weekend fun with family and/or friends. TAURUS (April 2 0 to May 20) Your genuine concern for others could prompt you to promise more than you can deliver. Its best to modify your plans now, before you wind up overcommitted later. GEM INI ( May 21 to J une 20) A situation that seems simple at first glance needs a more thorough assessment before you give it your OK. Dig deeper for information that might be hidden from view. C ANC ER (June 21 to J uly 22) Careful: Right now, things might not be quite what they appear. Even the intuitive Crab could misread the signs. Get some solid facts before you act on your suspicions. LEO (July 23 to A ug. 22) Your energy levels are high, allowing you to complete those unfinished tasks before you take on a new project. A social invitation could come from an unlikely source. V IRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You might think youre helping, but unless youre asked for a critique, dont give it. If you are asked, watch what you say. Your words should be helpful, not hurtful. LIB RA ( Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your attempt at mediating disputes might meet some opposition at first. But once youre shown to be fair and impartial, resistance soon gives way to cooperation. SCORPI O ( Oct. 23 to N ov 21) Go ahead. Reward yourself for helping settle a disturbing workplace situation. On another note: A personal relationship might be moving to a higher level. S AGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec. 21) A sudden change of heart by a colleague might create some momentary uncertainty. But stay with your original decision and, if necessary, defend it. CAP RICORN ( Dec. 22 to J an. 19) Rely on a combination of your sharp instincts along with some really intense information-gathering to help you make a possibly life-changing decision. AQUARIUS (Jan. 2 0 to Fe b. 18) Instead of worrying if that new person in your life will stay or leave, spend all that energy on strengthening your relationship so it becomes walkout resistant. PI SCE S ( Fe b. 19 to March 20) A sudden financial dry spell could reduce your cash flow almost to a trickle. But by conserving more and spending less, youll get through the crunch in good shape.

The week is Give Wildlife A Brake, a program to increase the awareness of motorists, stressing that defensive driving can benefit people as well as animals crossing the road. Noah was the first person to give animals a break when he loaded them on the ark. All went well until four gnus came up the gangplank. Their handler explained, You see, first theres the good gnus and then theres the bad gnus. Obviously, Noah didnt accept the bad gnus. If Noah had lived in the United States today he would have had bad news. When he couldnt finish the ark in the time that God had given him, Noah complained to God, First, I had to get a construction permit, and I had to hire an engineering firm to redraw the plans to conform with the building codes. Then I got into a fight with OSHA claimed the ark needed a sprinkler system and floatation devices. My neighbor objected, claiming I was violating zoning ordinances by building the ark in my front yard, so I had to get a variance from the city planning commission. Then, I had problems getting enough wood for the ark, because there was a ban on cutting trees to protect the Spotted Owl. I finally convinced the U.S. Forest Service that I really needed the wood to save the owls. However, the Fish and Wildlife Service wouldnt let me take the two owls. The carpenters went on strike. I had to negotiate a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board before anyone would do any work. When I started rounding up the animals, an animal rights group sued me. They objected to my taking only two of each kind aboard. Meanwhile, the EPA notified me that I could not complete the Ark without filing an environmental impact statement on Your proposed flood. They didnt take very kindly to the idea that they had no jurisdiction over the conduct of the Creator of the Universe. Then, the Army Corps of Engineers demanded a map of the proposed flood plain. I sent them a globe. I am trying to resolve a complaint filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that I am practicing discrimination by not taking atheists aboard. The IRS has seized my assets, claiming that Im building the ark in preparation to flee the country to avoid paying taxes. I just got a notice from the state that I owe them some kind of user tax and failed to register the ark as a recreational water craft. And finally, the ACLU got the courts to issue an injunction against further construction of the Ark, stating that since God is flooding the earth, its a religious event, and, therefore unconstitutional. God said to Noah, Forget about building the ark. Noah looked up hopefully. You mean youre not going to destroy the earth, Lord? No, He said sadly. I dont have to. The government already has. Band aidThe Department of the Interior has changed the metal bands used to tag migratory birds. The bands had the address of the Washington Biological Survey, abbreviated as Wash. Biol. Surv. until the agency received a letter from an unhappy camper: Dear Sirs: While camping last week, I shot one of your birds. I think it was a crow. I followed the cooking instructions on the leg tag and want to tell you it tasted horrible. The bands are now marked Fish & Wildlife Service.Wild lifeUtah wildlife officials are concerned for the safety of a man dressed as a goat in a herd of goats. I kid you not. My wife and I were watching a wildlife program about the cheetah. I said, You know why theyre endangered, dont you? She nodded. Of course, Cheetahs never prosper. This wildlife book you sold me is nothing but pictures of animals. Biologists have recently produced immortal frogs by removing their vocal cords. They cant croak.Hop highA kangaroo kept getting out of his zoo enclosure. The zoo officials put up a ten-foot fence. He was out the next morning, just roaming around the zoo. A twenty-foot fence was put up. Again he got out. When the fence was forty feet high, a camel in the next enclosure asked the kangaroo, How high do you think theyll go? The kangaroo said, About a thousand feet, unless somebody locks the gate at night.

Read the classifieds Give wildlife a break this week PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank E The Environmental MagazineD ear E arthTalk: What is currently being done in the U.S. to ensure the wise use and safety of our nation s groundwater? -Kev in O rr, Baton Rouge, LA Keeping fresh water safe and abundant is a challenge for all societies. In the U.S., about half of the countrys drinking water comes from groundwater sources. Many rural areas derive all of their drinking water from groundwater, which also provides 40 percent of the irrigation needs of American farmers. While underground aquifers may at one point have seemed limitless, huge demand for water (especially in arid areas like the Southwest) means that groundwater reserves are precious and need to be carefully managed with conservation in mind. Also, groundwater is easily contaminated by any number of common man-made products like gasoline, oil, road salts, pesticides, fertilizers and other chemicals. Management of specific water supplies is decentralizedlocal and regional water authorities manage supplies for municipalities and counties around the countrybut oversight comes from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as mandated by the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act. Enacted in 1972, the Clean Water Act addresses water pollution in general and requires everyone, but especially large water users including large industrial and agricultural operations, to deal with their water inflows and outflows in a responsible, non-polluting manner. Meanwhile, 1974s Safe Drinking Water Act requires the EPA to set standards for drinking water quality that the 150,000 public water entities across the country must meet. Third party laboratories provide detailed analyses to ensure that local supplies live up to the EPAs expectations. These laws work together to keep groundwater supplies safe, but environmentalists would like to see both strengthened substantially in the face of drought-inducing global warming and other threats. While regulation and enforcement of industry and agriculture are important for protecting our limited groundwater supplies, consumers also must play a role. The Groundwater Foundation, a Nebraska-based non-profit working to educate people and inspire action to ensure sustainable, clean groundwater for future generations, suggests taking short showers, shutting off the faucet while brushing teeth and shaving, running full loads of dishes and laundry, checking for leaky PHOTO BY RON RATNERInternational Games DaySaturday was International Games Day all over the world.

BY MICHAEL W. GROCHOWSKI November 11 is more than just a national holiday; Veterans Day is a time to honor the men and women who risk their lives to protect our freedom. We at Social Security ask you to join us in saluting the men and women of the armed forces. Be sure to say thank you to a veteran on this important day. For those who return home with injuries, it will be our turn to help them. If you know any wounded veterans, please let them know about Social Securitys Wounded Warriors website. You can find it at www.socialsecurity.gov/woundedwarriors. The Wounded Warriors website answers a number of commonly asked questions, and shares other useful information about disability benefits, including how veterans can receive expedited processing of disability claims. It is important to note that benefits available through Social Security are different than those from the Department of Veterans Affairs and require a separate application. The expedited process is used for military service members who become disabled while on active military service on or after October 1, 2001, regardless of where the disability occurs. Even active duty military who continue to receive pay while in a hospital or on medical leave should consider applying for disability benefits if they are unable to work due to a disabling condition. Active duty status and receipt of military pay does not necessarily prevent payment of Social Security disability benefits. Receipt of military payments should never stop someone from applying for disability benefits from Social Security. A person cannot receive Social Security disability benefits while engaging in substantial work for pay or profit. However, the work activity is the controlling factor and not the amount of pay the person receives or military duty status. Learn more by visiting www.socialsecurity.gov/woundedwarriors. We at Social Security thank all veterans and members of the armed services for all that they do not only on Veterans Day, but every day of the year.Michael W.

The Cold War (1947-1991) was so named because there was no direct military action since both sides possessed nuclear weapons and because their use would probably guarantee mutual assured destruction. (Many of us remember duck and cover drills). Rather, it featured a series of political and military skirmishes fought on the periphery, some of which broke out into hot war with client states of the various members of NATO and/or the Warsaw Pact, I.e. Korea, Southeast Asia. Probably the most memorable of these skirmishes are the Berlin Airlift, erection of the Berlin Wall, Cuban missile crisis, deployment of cruise missiles to western Europe and a little known event from the fall of 1983 Operation Able Archer. Two of these (the Cuban missile crises and Able Archer) brought the world to the threshold of all-out nuclear war. The Cold War was fought by hundreds of thousands of veterans, most of whom were drafted or draft motivated. They served in bomber and missile forces, the submarine fleet and on the trip wire lines of Western Europe and Korea. There is little appreciation for the fact that even at the height of the Southeast Asian conflict, more GIs were serving in Europe than in Southeast Asia. Thousands more served in Korea, Okinawa and Japan. Of course this does not included the missile, bomber and submarine alert forces at home. These shadow warriors stood alert away from home and family; carried out countless training drills and probed the envelope constantly testing the resolve of our primary foe. Although only infrequently subjected to direct combat the nature of the drills and the conditions under which air/seaborne/missile alerts were carried out in many cases made them just as hazardous as combat operations. There are no statistics as to the actual casualty count; however, there were more then 2,500 non-hostile deaths in West Germany between 1945 and 1975, more than the total losses in Afghanistan for a 10-year period; yet these veterans go largely unrecognized. There is no Cold War Victory Medal or campaign ribbon; those who served from 1947 to 1950, 1954 to 1961 and from 1975 to 1990 are not even eligible for the American Legion or the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Let us not forget these shadow warriors who were the victors in the Cold War! In a curious footnote to history, the Cold War would end on the weekend of Veterans Day 1989 when East Germany surrendered to the demand of its citizens for freedom and an end to the standoff between East and West and opened the Berlin Wall, much as the Armistice called for by Imperial Germany in 1918 which led to the end of hostilities. In closing, as a veteran of the Southeast Asia Conflict, I must acknowledge the 30th anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, dedicated on Nov. 13, 1982.Article by CMSgt. Fred OHern USAF (Ret.):The Veteran I raised by hand to recognize the colonel passing by The shuffling gray-hair in between, he never caught my eye But, he saw me and my salute and snapped his hand Up to his brow and straightened up, a sudden, different man. The colonel smiled, and as did I, he saw the mans mistake Well, if he thought Id saluted him, it might just serve to make His day a bit more proud as he recalls another day When he served on land, or sea, or in war far way. Was it Ardennes or on the beach, he watched his buddies die? And penned a note to their mom or sis and paused to wonder why They go the golden BB while he cam through unscathed A victory parade in 45 crowds cheered and flags they waved. But then he was forgotten, through Korea, Vietnam Nothing left heroic in a shuffling gray-haired man Waiting now alone to die, though part of him did die In mud, sand, snow or in cold German skies. And who cares for one now old and gray, with clothes illfit and in the way Of younger troops with things to do and new wars far away? But I care now as I saw change in the old mans eye and stride As he marched head high to pass me by, his head now high with pride. Perhaps when I am old and gray, some young pup third my age Will raise his hand, salute to me and never stop to gauge The time in years apart are we, but know I never swerved From duty as I saw it, and like the old man, too, I served.By John Piowatty, LtCol USAF (Ret.) This poem depicts a true incident at a USAF base hospital. Lt. Col. Piowatty as a young captain in August 1967 led a flight of F-105 Thunderchiefs against the Paul Doumer Bridge outside Hanoi, North Vietnam. In spite of intense antiaircraft fire, his flight successfully destroyed the bridge in the first use of smart bombs that are now commonplace in the military. John went on to a distinguished and colorful career.From your reporterThe column in this issue of the Citizen has been largely devoted to the veterans of our community. It is fitting that this should be as we celebrate Veterans Day on Sunday, Nov. 11. Personally, I have had the honor and privilege to walk among heroes and I here and now thank them for their service to this great country of ours. Special thanks to CMSgt. Fred OHern for his contribution to this edition. Your questions, ideas and suggestions are always welcome so feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I always enjoy hearing from you. Friday, November 9, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com The campaign headquarters post mortem of an unsuccessful presidential candidate begins with a lament something like this: If we had carried Montana (3 electoral votes) we could have won it all. If only are sad but mildly comforting words. Every four years we get an opportunity to explain the mystery of the Electoral College. Writing this exposition for publication just after the election avoids any allegation that we intended to cause confusion and voter suppression. It is important to remember there would be no United States of America if the former colonies hadnt approved our Constitution. The new states had no intention of going out of business, particularly the smaller ones. They intended then and still insist to have a voice in Washington. Article I, Section 4 of the Constitution says the States will hold elections for Senators and Representatives. Congress can fiddle with some of the details, but the States are still in charge. Article II requires the States to participate in election of the President by having voters choose electors equal to the number of Senators and Representatives each State sends to Congress. Electors are nominated by political parties and appointed by the states. After citizens have voted, the electors cast their ballots and later transmit them to Congress to be counted. Why such a rigamarole? To preserve states rights the founders considered having state legislatures select the president. They dropped that idea because deadlocks would be likely if each state insisted on electing a favorite son or regional good ole boy. The framers of the Constitution also considered letting Congress select the president. On reconsideration they decided to fashion a system which would insulate the President from a political majority in Congress and from citizens who could be manipulated by promises and corruption. Before and after every presidential election, a few voices rise to suggest the Electoral College is outdated and should be abolished. They forget or choose to ignore that Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Fidel Castro, and Hugo Chavez were elected to power by direct votes of the people. One of my favorite national columnists, Mark Shields, wrote recently that The Electoral College Must Go. He said it is absolutely anti-democratic and all the democracies created since the end of World War II have managed to function without an electoral college. We have to disagree for the single reason that the United States is not and was not intended to be a democracy. We are a successful 225 year old constitutional republic. Would we prefer to be a European social democracy? Would we be better off? We dont think so. As one historian put it, The democracy genie was quickly put back in the bottle. Given the current state of party politics, we believe the founders had great foresight when they reasoned that the president should not be chosen by legislatures, by Congress, or by popular vote of the people. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, November 9, 2012 For a native New Yorker, who was raised across the George Washington Bridge in New Jersey, TV watching last week was built mostly around Hurricane Sandy. There were a lot of familiar sites both shown and talked about as Manhattan, Staten Island and the Jersey Shore (the area, not the TV show) were highlighted as the areas most damaged by the wind and water, and Long Island, which had the devastating fire that swept through Breezy Point. Some held particular memories, especially New Jersey. There were two sites along the Shore (they didnt call it the beach when I was there, dont know what they do now) that brought recollections of past years. One was pictures of the town of Tuckerton, which leads to an area called Mystic Islands, where for a while in the 1960s my parents had a summer home. It was kind of nice the only time I ever drove (is that the right word?) a boat was at their home they had a small, slow-powered boat that I learned to steer, with some effort. The engine was in the back so it was backward from a car you turned the wheel to the right to go left, and so forth. It was also where I learned my young wifes dedication to family. My folks had ordered a load of gravel to spread over their sandy yard, and we were going down there on the weekend. Dad, however, got sick, and they were a day late, but with a great deal of help from my wife, we got the gravel spread ourselves so they wouldnt have to do it. I cant imagine what that area, and that house, looks like now. The other area was Island Beach. Before we were married, my wife, her sister and I went down to Island Beach, crossing over the Toms River Bridge. Now Im reading about all the devastation in that area. On Staten Island, I had a great aunt who lived in St. George, on a hill overlooking the ferry slip. I assume that she is long gone, but that area probably got hit by winds, mostly. It was way too high to have a surge. I watched with interest as the news showed a ferry coming in as service was resumed, but they never showed the view of Staten Island from the ferry, which I would have liked to see. We always took the ferry then there was no Verrazano Bridge, I dont believe, and it was too far to drive south in Jersey to cross the existing bridge. I wrote a friend in northern New Jersey, and she responded that her area, about 15 miles west of Manhattan, had some wind damage and no power, but she and her family were OK. I thought it was kind of ironic how, many years ago, we moved to Florida, where you have to be wary of hurricanes, but here we were escaping with little effect while the New York area was suffering. All my relatives have moved out of New Jersey, so there werent many others to contact. My old high school put a notice on Facebook that classes were canceled at some point. Anytime people ask you to help the Red Cross, even a small amount can help. If anything, we know how to survived hurricanes and live with the aftermath the people in New York really havent got that experience. You can plan for all sorts of things in life, but when Mother Nature decides to throw you a curve, theres not much you can do about it. Thats why, at the beginning of hurricane season each year, were reminding you to be prepared. After all, you never know.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Yes, tis the season for, well, you know, scams and thieves. A couple of weeks ago, our sheriffs substation investigated incidents at Walmart, where car windows were smashed in during some smash and grab attempts. As of this writing, no suspects have been caught. There are some precautions that everyone should take. The most obvious is not to put things that you buy in your vehicle, where they are visible to the public, and then leave your vehicle to go into another store, or a restaurant, or to do some chores. When you buy items at the store, if you cant put them out of sight in a trunk or somewhere like that, go straight home. Take your items into your house. Dont put your car in jeopardy of being broken into. Big parking lots are the perfect spots for thieves. Its easy for them to blend in with crowds, wait until its clear, and then quickly get away with your items. But other areas are also vulnerable. The other thing we have to be aware of is the people who try some scams against honest people. There are so many that its impossible to list them all, so heres a simple list of things to be aware of. Never give out personal information on the phone to someone you dont know if you didnt initiate the call. That includes obvious things like Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, and so forth, but also simple things like your address and, yes, even your name. Some of these people make several phone calls at once, and talk to the first person that answers. If they have to ask your name, just tell them, Hey, you called me. If you dont know who you called, good bye. Never invite anyone into your home unless youve initiated the visit (repairmen, etc.) and never, no matter what, leave them alone to have the run of your house. Never, ever, send money to anyone you dont know, even if they tell you its a good faith payment for a prize you won. And if that person says theyre a relative, do some checking before you send the money (the grandson stuck in Panama scam). Remember, you cant win a sweepstakes that you didnt enter. If youre told that you won, hang up. Finally, its an old saying, but if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Protect yourself, your purchases and your money, and youll have a much happier holiday. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

I know that they were told to evacuate their homes and move to areas that would be considered more safe. Just because they were told to evacuate their homes does not mean that they had the ability to follow these instructions. You must remember that they were on an island with no way that a mass evacuation could have handled the number of residents that made this area their home. With all of this understood there is no amount of talk that can provide food and shelter for these Americans. They need action now, not tomorrow and not next week because these New York residents simply have no basic transportation, food or shelter.

Veterans Day honors each and every veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces regardless of whether they served in war or during peace time, whether they were infantry grunts, mess cooks, mail handlers, sailors, marine, pilots or airmen. In President Eisenhowers words in formalizing Veterans Day in 1954, Let us solemnly remember the sacrifices of all those who served valiantly and selflessly to preserve our heritage and freedom. Veterans Day arose out of Armistice Day, first celebrated in 1919, to remember those who paid the last full measure of sacrifice in World War I. In most World War I allied nations, it is celebrated as Remembrance Day. Following World War II, a movement originating in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1947 led to Congressional action in 1954 to change the focus from the World War I armistice to recognition of the service of all veterans. However, the traditional focus of national Veterans Day services was preserved at the Tomb of the Unknown in Arlington National Cemetery with the laying of a Presidential wreath. The first tomb was dedicated to Armistice Day 1921 followed by World War II and Korean unknowns in 1958. A Vietnam unknown was later identified and the empty crypt is now dedicated to those missing in action. The unrelenting passage of time forces the passing of the baton to each succeeding generation, consequently there is less and less focus on those who served in World War II, Korea, Southeast Asia and even the first Gulf War as the baton is passed to those veterans who serve and served in the Global War on Terror and have paid the price of 6000-plus killed and thousands more maimed. Thus, I think it important that before our collective memories completely erase them from history, we pay a tribute to the veterans of the nations longest war, some might say a completely forgotten or even a non-war, the Cold War. The veterans of the Cold War are largely ignored and even forgotten by the public, the government and even many of their brothers in arms who believe the only good war is a got one!Friday, November 9, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, November 9, 2012 www.smcitizen.com own people are left to fend for themselves. There are areas in New York and New Jersey that have been totally wiped out with these people losing everything. Where is our military that could build platforms and set up tents as emergency shelters along with mess tents to supply food for these people? During wars that our country engages in we could supply our troops with shelter, food supplies and medical assistance anywhere in the world. Why cant these areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy be declared a war zone and build these tent cities wherever necessary? Jerry Segovis Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Iam not the kind of person looking for a handout or anything free. When somebody offers me something free, I know there is a catch somewhere, and as long as I still have a slice of sanity in my noodle soup, nobody is going to catch me. Before I had made this a hard and fast rule the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I took a company up on their free offer of three days and two nights in a marvelous resort hotel. All you have to do, the person on the phone said, is listen to a short presentation. That short presentation took exactly three days and two nights. By the time we were done and ready to come home we were exhausted. How many times can you say no, and for it to register in the person to which it is directed? Obviously, from our experience, there is no answer to that question. I learned my lesson and have never accepted a free Free is as free gives and I dont like free, usually OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder offer since. Not that I have not had the opportunity, I just am highly suspicious of anything that contains that five-letter word free. Recently an event happened that has upgraded my thoughts concerning the word free. The day began as usual, which included a trip to the local grocery store and the bakery department for the obligatory Apple Fritter. A day without an Apple Fritter is a day I do not want to get out of bed. This one thing drives me out of my cozy bed in the morning and puts a little bit of getup in my get-along. I am not sure if an Apple Fritter a day will keep the doctor away, but who am I to challenge such likelihood? Personally, I would rather err on the side of the Apple Fritter. It all began years ago when my wife insisted I add more fruit to my diet. It was then I discovered the marvelous delicacy of the old-fashioned Apple Fritter. Just the word apple makes it a fruit in my mind. My wife and I have had very few disputes during the almost half-century of our relationship but this is one. She feels an Apple Fritter does not qualify as a fruit. I think she is rather fruity along this line myself; however, I am too wise and love life too much to actually say it to her. What I say under my breath and behind her back does me no harm whatsoever. My argument is that there is enough Apple in an Apple Fritter to qualify it for a fruit. I am not sure who has won this argument, but I am not going to challenge it. Rather, I will enjoy the fruity nature of my delectable Apple Fritter. Getting back to the incident that has changed my mind about free. I entered the grocery store, walked back to the bakery department and selected a freshly baked Apple Fritter. It was about all I can do to keep from eating it between the bakery department and the cashier counter. We all have our crosses to bear, and this is one of mine. I need to wait until I get to my office where I can leisurely enjoy one of the great delicacies of life. Also, no one can see me eat it, especially, you know who. I got to the checkout counter and handed over, reluctantly, my Apple Fritter in order to pay for it. It is the best $.79 I spend every day. Then the inevitable happened. Im sorry, the young lady behind the counter said, but there is something wrong with this Apple Fritter. Boy, did she have my attention. I was about to give her a piece of my mind. Who did she think she was? My wife? I wanted to give her a spicy lecture on the importance of the Apple Fritter in question. In my mind, there was nothing wrong with this Apple Fritter. I do not often get my dander up. After all, I do not have the hair I used to have, so it is rather difficult to do it. This rather came close for me. As I stood there steaming, she looked at me and said, Im sorry, the pricing is wrong on this Apple Fritter. I guess the bakery department made a mistake. She then paused for a moment, did something on the cash machine and then said some words that caused me to dance in the aisles. Im sorry that this mistake happened, so according to our store policy, this Apple Fritter is free. I stood there unable to speak. All my reservations about free, went out the window. I smiled. I smiled a smile that went from one end of the store to the other. Then to make sure I understood correctly I asked her, Are you sure this is free? When she answered in the affirmative, I gently picked up that free Apple Fritter and departed from the store not afraid for anybody to see my Apple Fritter and me together. The only other free offer I ever accept is from God. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23 KJV). Gods gift carries with it marvelous compensations both now and eternally. Gods free is free indeed.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow, Between the crosses row on row, That mark our lace and in the sky, The larks, still bravely singing fly, Scarce heard amid the guns below We are the Dead, short days ago. We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe, To you from failing hands we throw, The torch, be yours to hold it high. If you break faith with us who die. We shall not sleep, though poppies grow, In Flanders fields. Originally, fresh poppies were distributed by the Franco-American Childrens League to benefit children in the devastated areas of France and Belgium. In 1922, the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States arranged to get poppies from France. This took too long and subsequently disabled, hospitalized and aging veterans were enlisted to make paper poppies and ship them to VFW members for distribution. The VFW pays veterans in VA and state veterans hospitals and homes to make and ship these symbolic flowers for Veterans Day and Memorial Day Buddy Poppy drives. All proceeds from the drive are used to fund patriotic activities and the needs of deserving veterans. This is a tradition shared with our allies from World War I, Britain, Australia, France, Belgium, New Zealand and the Netherlands. VFW Post 4781 will conduct a Buddy Poppy drive at various major stores in the area including Publix, Winn Dixie, Walmart, Gander Mount and IHOP on Nov. 9 and 10. We urge all patriots to get their Buddy Poppy and proudly wear it on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.Newcomers welcomedNewcomers Pat and Larry Lee, Kathy Brown and Joe Cignac (pictured) were greeted on Saturday, Nov. 3, by our Welcoming Committee.

BY RICH LOWRY Eventually social science works its way around to confirming eternal verities. So it is with gratitude. An article in a psychological journal a few years ago noted that "throughout history, religious, theological and philosophical treatises have viewed gratitude as integral to well-being." Psychology has recently worked to quantify the wisdom of the ages and confirmed -sure enough -it was correct. A raft of recent research has established that grateful people are happier people. They are less depressed and less stressed. They are less likely to envy others and more likely to want to share. They even sleep better. As the journal article put it, empirical work "has suggested gratitude is as strongly correlated with wellbeing as are other positive traits, and has suggested that this relationship is causal." Gratitude constitutes what philosopher David Hume called a "calm passion." It doesn't have the theatrical potential of anger and hatred, or courage and sacrifice. Nonetheless, there's a reason it has been considered central to the good life and a good society by all major religions and by thinkers stretching from Cicero ("Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others") to Oprah ("Whenever you can't think of something to be grateful for, remember your breath"). Gratitude acknowledges our dependence on others and the debt we owe because of it. Grateful people want, somehow, to return the favor of their undeserved windfall. It is a sentiment that, in the jargon, is "pro-social." A leading figure in its study, Michael McCullough of the University of Miami, maintains that it binds us to others beyond the ties of family and of commercial transactions. Gratitude is at the root of patriotism, of the impulse to preserve and improve our patrimony. In a culture that tends to celebrate self-glorification, gratitude points us beyond our own demands and discontents. It inclines us to see all around us a world of gifts. What did we do to inherit a country that is free and prosperous? To deserve Charlie Parker or Mark Twain? To build the Golden Gate Bridge or the Chrysler Building? To measure up to the beauties of the Catholic mass or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Or simply to prove worthy of traffic lights and potable water? Without gratitude, William F. Buckley Jr. wrote, "We are left with the numbing, benumbing thought that we owe nothing to Plato and Aristotle, nothing to the prophets who wrote the Bible, nothing to the generations who fought for freedoms activated in the Bill of Rights." He called for "a rebirth of gratitude for those who have cared for us, living and, mostly, dead. The high moments of our way of life are their gifts to us." John Adams captured the grateful attitude when he acknowledged the hardships of this vale of tears while celebrating it all the same (if in anachronistic language): "Griefs upon griefs! Disappointments upon disappointments. What then? This is a gay, merry world notwithstanding."

The Marion Landing Fall Sale will be held on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 8 a.m. to noon in the Lifestyle Center. Residents should drop off their donated items on Friday, Nov. 16, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Previously known as the Bazaar, admission to the Fall Sale is free and open to the public. There will be special sections designated for jewelry, books, homemade baked goods, plants, sports equipment and tools, along with tables full of household items and giftware. Marion Landings Lifestyle Center is on Southwest 65th Avenue Road just across State Road 200 from Queen of Peace. Stop by theres sure to be something youve been looking for.Holiday food drive begins Nov. 13Although our community collects donations for Interfaith Emergency Services on the first Tuesday of each month, its now time to kick it into high gear with our annual food drive. This years drive begins on Nov. 13, and almost any unopened item not requiring refrigeration is welcome. Canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, cereal and peanut butter are all popular items; and hygiene products such as tooth paste and deodorant are always needed. Marion Landing has been conducting an annual food drive for many years, and Gloria and Dave Wilberg have led the effort for the past nine years, along with Mary Ann Hall and her team, who coordinate our monthly food drives. The food drive will run four weeks, so lets do our best this year and help Interfaith provide packages to needy families for the holidays. Donations may be brought to the Lifestyle Center and placed in the baskets underneath the residents mail boxes or brought to any of the Tuesday Socials through Dec. 4. All donations are very much appreciated. Blood drive needs donationsThe Big Red Bus will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot from on Wednesday, Nov. 21 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. to collect donations for Floridas Blood Centers, the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. Every three seconds, someone, somewhere needs blood. Thats why its imperative that we replenish our available blood supply by donating to our local blood bank. You can donate blood even if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, and you only need be cancerfree for one year. And donating blood not only helps others, but is beneficial to yourself, as well. Our blood drive coordinator Pat Wurst tells us that if you donate blood every other month, your body replenishes its own blood supply with fresh blood, and you may reduce your risk of heart attack by as much as 70 percent. This fact alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on Nov. 21. You never know when you will be the one who needs it; so if you are able, please donate and give the gift of life. Sign up on the sheet hanging on the activity wall, or see Pat and her volunteers in the lobby the day the bus is here. Remember to eat something before you donate, drink plenty of fluid and bring a photo I.D. with you. Were depending on you!Community Thanksgiving dinner Residents are able to get their tickets now for Thanksgiving Dinner, which will be served on Thursday, Nov. 22. Tickets are $6 each, and dinner includes turkey, cranberry orange relish, old fashioned cornbread dressing, homestyle mashed potatoes and gravy. When you purchase your ticket, we are asking that you sign up to bring a side dish or dessert to share. Also, anyone wishing to help sell tickets, set up, serve or clean up, please see Joanie or Diane, or sign up on the sheet posted on the Activity Wall. This is always a special day, and we hope it will be an enjoyable holiday for all.Landing Lites holiday concertTickets are also on sale for the Landing Lites Holiday Concert to be held on Saturday, Dec. 1. The concert will be a blend of 13 sacred and secular music selections. If I had to describe the program, it would be varied, said Director Floyd Hickman, and the chorus will be singing traditional music along with some contemporary. The concert features two soloists: Karen Blinkhorn, music director at Sunrise Elementary School, a third generation oboist who has performed with the Ocala Symphony Orchestra; and our own Lina Vallejo, who will sing an a capella arrangement of Ave Maria. Tickets for this program are $5 each and will be sold at Tuesday Socials and in the Activities Office during regular ticket sale hours.

Its a bloodless true crime story told entirely by the victim himself. He tells us what began his waking nightmare. This journey began as I was confronted with turning 40, still not having found any real fulfillment in my life. Those four, cold gray walls of my cubicle propelled me to seek love. Whether someone was playing a joke on him or not, Paul soon found himself on the mailing list for Russian brides. How desperate or lonely did a guy have to be to buy a bride, he laughed to himself. But then he turned the pages of one issue to find gorgeous young Russian women all eager to start life in America. In Moscow he fell immediately for beauteous Natasha but it was not to be and Paul happily accepted his second choice cute and charming Talia. In the beginning the marriage seemed fairy-tale perfection. Then reality stepped in. Talia could not get any sleep with Paul in the same bed so she retired to the guest room. Then she began spending the lions share of her time at the library studying to become a doctor. Although the marriage ended, Talia first presented Paul with a son and gave him sole custody. Now that son needed a mother. Enter Audrey Munson. Still searching for a soul mate and now a mother for son Johnny, Goldman joins a dating service called Jewish Singles. He meets a twice-divorced, single mother he calls Audrey Munson (not her real name) and believes that she is the one. But within weeks he becomes suspicious. She is only a part-time wife because she must care for an ailing grandmother in another city. He begins digging and finds that Audrey is not only in love with another man but also that the man is actually her pimp. Shes a hooker and a madamand by the way theres no grandmother. Accepting that hes a real chump blind-sided by optimistic romantic notions, Paul nevertheless grows a backbone and seeks justice for himself and future men Audrey will certainly target. Enlisting the aid of Audreys ex-husbands plus an investigator and even a psychic, Goldman succeeds in drawing the attention of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the FBI and the IRS.

Marion Landings Lifestyle Center is on Southwest 65th Avenue Road just across State Road 200 from Queen of Peace. Stop by theres sure to be something youve been looking for.Holiday food drive begins Nov. 13Although our community collects donations for Interfaith Emergency Services on the first Tuesday of each month, its now time to kick it into high gear with our annual food drive. This years drive begins on Nov. 13, and almost any unopened item not requiring refrigeration is welcome. Canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, cereal and peanut butter are all popular items; and hygiene products such as tooth paste and deodorant are always needed. Marion Landing has been conducting an annual food drive for many years, and Gloria and Dave Wilberg have led the effort for the past nine years, along with Mary Ann Hall and her team, who coordinate our monthly food drives. The food drive will run four weeks, so lets do our best this year and help Interfaith provide packages to needy families for the holidays. Donations may be brought to the Lifestyle Center and placed in the baskets underneath the residents mail boxes or brought to any of the Tuesday Socials through Dec. 4. All donations are very much appreciated. Blood drive needs donationsThe Big Red Bus will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot from on Wednesday, Nov. 21 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. to collect donations for Floridas Blood Centers, the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. Every three seconds, someone, somewhere needs blood. Thats why its imperative that we replenish our available blood supply by donating to our local blood bank. You can donate blood even if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, and you only need be cancerfree for one year. And donating blood not only helps others, but is beneficial to yourself, as well. Our blood drive coordinator Pat Wurst tells us that if you donate blood every other month, your body replenishes its own blood supply with fresh blood, and you may reduce your risk of heart attack by as much as 70 percent. This fact alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on Nov. 21. You never know when you will be the one who needs it; so if you are able, please donate and give the gift of life. Sign up on the sheet hanging on the activity wall, or see Pat and her volunteers in the lobby the day the bus is here. Remember to eat something before you donate, drink plenty of fluid and bring a photo I.D. with you. Were depending on you!Community Thanksgiving dinner Residents are able to get their tickets now for Thanksgiving Dinner, which will be served on Thursday, Nov. 22. Tickets are $6 each, and dinner includes turkey, cranberry orange relish, old fashioned cornbread dressing, homestyle mashed potatoes and gravy. When you purchase your ticket, we are asking that you sign up to bring a side dish or dessert to share. Also, anyone wishing to help sell tickets, set up, serve or clean up, please see Joanie or Diane, or sign up on the sheet posted on the Activity Wall. This is always a special day, and we hope it will be an enjoyable holiday for all.Landing Lites holiday concertTickets are also on sale for the Landing Lites Holiday Concert to be held on Saturday, Dec. 1. The concert will be a blend of 13 sacred and secular music selections. If I had to describe the program, it would be varied, said Director Floyd Hickman, and the chorus will be singing traditional music along with some contemporary. The concert features two soloists: Karen Blinkhorn, music director at Sunrise Elementary School, a third generation oboist who has performed with the Ocala Symphony Orchestra; and our own Lina Vallejo, who will sing an a capella arrangement of Ave Maria. Tickets for this program are $5 each and will be sold at Tuesday Socials and in the Activities Office during regular ticket sale hours. This is a Marion Landing holiday tradition you wont want to miss, and this years concert will be dedicated to the memory of a long-time Landing Lites member Marian Curtin.Decorating volunteers neededThe sign-up sheet has been posted on the Activity Wall ready for volunteers to sign up to decorate the Lifestyle Center for the holidays. This year, decorating will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 28, from 9 a.m. to noon and continue on Friday, Nov. 30, if needed. Along with our Angel Tree and Patriotic Trees, one of the large trees in the great room is decorated with ornaments donated by residents of the community. If youre new to Marion Landing, wed love to have you bring down an ornament to place on this tree.

Its a bloodless true crime story told entirely by the victim himself. He tells us what began his waking nightmare. This journey began as I was confronted with turning 40, still not having found any real fulfillment in my life. Those four, cold gray walls of my cubicle propelled me to seek love. Whether someone was playing a joke on him or not, Paul soon found himself on the mailing list for Russian brides. How desperate or lonely did a guy have to be to buy a bride, he laughed to himself. But then he turned the pages of one issue to find gorgeous young Russian women all eager to start life in America. In Moscow he fell immediately for beauteous Natasha but it was not to be and Paul happily accepted his second choice cute and charming Talia. In the beginning the marriage seemed fairy-tale perfection. Then reality stepped in. Talia could not get any sleep with Paul in the same bed so she retired to the guest room. Then she began spending the lions share of her time at the library studying to become a doctor. Although the marriage ended, Talia first presented Paul with a son and gave him sole custody. Now that son needed a mother. Enter Audrey Munson. Still searching for a soul mate and now a mother for son Johnny, Goldman joins a dating service called Jewish Singles. He meets a twice-divorced, single mother he calls Audrey Munson (not her real name) and believes that she is the one. But within weeks he becomes suspicious. She is only a part-time wife because she must care for an ailing grandmother in another city. He begins digging and finds that Audrey is not only in love with another man but also that the man is actually her pimp. Shes a hooker and a madamand by the way theres no grandmother. Accepting that hes a real chump blind-sided by optimistic romantic notions, Paul nevertheless grows a backbone and seeks justice for himself and future men Audrey will certainly target. Enlisting the aid of Audreys ex-husbands plus an investigator and even a psychic, Goldman succeeds in drawing the attention of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the FBI and the IRS.

The meal was catered by Sammys Fine Italian Restaurant, with the exception of dessert, which was provided by Pink Rolling Pin. Club members served as waiters/waitresses. The meal consisted of a salad, spaghetti and meatballs, ice tea or coffee, and a dessert. A cash bar was available through the H&R Pub for those who desired a glass of wine or a mixed drink to go with their meal. Entertainment included the very popular Western Sidekick Dancers.

On Saturday, Nov. 10 from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., the Veterans Club will kick off the Veterans Day weekend with a model show in the clubhouse. More than 250 assorted plastic models of aircraft, ships, tanks, artillery pieces and various military vehicles will be sold for $1 to $5 each to support the clubs many activities. On Sunday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m., the annual Veterans Day program will begin. Our Color Guard will present the flags, guest speaker Col. Tom P. Currie Jr., USAF (Ret.) will give the keynote address and honors will be presented to all branches of service including, for the first time, the Merchant Marine. Immediately following the ceremony, there will be a picnic lunch of hamburgers, hotdogs, side dishes and desserts. Lemonade and iced tea will be provided, but guests are welcome to bring their own liquid refreshments to enjoy. While the Veterans Day service is free to the public, the picnic tickets are $7 each. Geri has tickets in the office and a limited number of tickets will be available at the door.Veteran Poppy DayVeterans Day is Sunday, Nov. 11. In honor and in recognition of that, CMSgt. Fred OHern, USAF (Ret.) contributed the following: The Poppy movement was inspired by Canadian Army Lt. Col. John McCraes famous poem, penned after the Battle of Ypres in May 1915. In Flanders Fields the poppies blow, Between the crosses row on row, That mark our lace and in the sky, The larks, still bravely singing fly, Scarce heard amid the guns below We are the Dead, short days ago. We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe, To you from failing hands we throw, The torch, be yours to hold it high. If you break faith with us who die. We shall not sleep, though poppies grow, In Flanders fields. Originally, fresh poppies were distributed by the Franco-American Childrens League to benefit children in the devastated areas of France and Belgium. In 1922, the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States arranged to get poppies from France. This took too long and subsequently disabled, hospitalized and aging veterans were enlisted to make paper poppies and ship them to VFW members for distribution. The VFW pays veterans in VA and state veterans hospitals and homes to make and ship these symbolic flowers for Veterans Day and Memorial Day Buddy Poppy drives. All proceeds from the drive are used to fund patriotic activities and the needs of deserving veterans. This is a tradition shared with our allies from World War I, Britain, Australia, France, Belgium, New Zealand and the Netherlands. VFW Post 4781 will conduct a Buddy Poppy drive at various major stores in the area including Publix, Winn Dixie, Walmart, Gander Mount and IHOP on Nov. 9 and 10. We urge all patriots to get their Buddy Poppy and proudly wear it on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.Newcomers welcomedNewcomers Pat and Larry Lee, Kathy Brown and Joe Cignac (pictured) were greeted on Saturday, Nov. 3, by our Welcoming Committee. Coffee and desserts were served as various leaders from our many committees, clubs and organizations gave presentations concerning the vast and varied activities that are available here in Cherrywood. Each new resident received a gift bag of information concerning Marion County, Ocala and Florida in general. In addition, the CERT team gave a special presentation that let our new people know how to prepare for emergencies. A special thanks to those who showed up to welcome our new people: Cert President Dewella Markland and her team of volunteers, resident DJ Rich Becotte, Eve Houghtaling, Geri and Richard Downs. Kathy Brown won the door prize of a hand embroidered pillow made by Welcoming Committee member Suzi Everlove. Watch the Citizen for the next scheduled coffee hour for our new residents.Knitters thankedTen ladies from the Cherrywood Knitting and Crochet Club were personally thanked by Visitation Committee President Eve Houghlington this week. Our Visitation Committee goes to the nursing homes, residences and hospice facilities to bring a word of cheer and a gift to those who are suffering.

BY RICH LOWRY Eventually social science works its way around to confirming eternal verities. So it is with gratitude. An article in a psychological journal a few years ago noted that "throughout history, religious, theological and philosophical treatises have viewed gratitude as integral to well-being." Psychology has recently worked to quantify the wisdom of the ages and confirmed -sure enough -it was correct. A raft of recent research has established that grateful people are happier people. They are less depressed and less stressed. They are less likely to envy others and more likely to want to share. They even sleep better. As the journal article put it, empirical work "has suggested gratitude is as strongly correlated with wellbeing as are other positive traits, and has suggested that this relationship is causal." Gratitude constitutes what philosopher David Hume called a "calm passion." It doesn't have the theatrical potential of anger and hatred, or courage and sacrifice. Nonetheless, there's a reason it has been considered central to the good life and a good society by all major religions and by thinkers stretching from Cicero ("Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others") to Oprah ("Whenever you can't think of something to be grateful for, remember your breath"). Gratitude acknowledges our dependence on others and the debt we owe because of it. Grateful people want, somehow, to return the favor of their undeserved windfall. It is a sentiment that, in the jargon, is "pro-social." A leading figure in its study, Michael McCullough of the University of Miami, maintains that it binds us to others beyond the ties of family and of commercial transactions. Gratitude is at the root of patriotism, of the impulse to preserve and improve our patrimony. In a culture that tends to celebrate self-glorification, gratitude points us beyond our own demands and discontents. It inclines us to see all around us a world of gifts. What did we do to inherit a country that is free and prosperous? To deserve Charlie Parker or Mark Twain? To build the Golden Gate Bridge or the Chrysler Building? To measure up to the beauties of the Catholic mass or the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Or simply to prove worthy of traffic lights and potable water? Without gratitude, William F. Buckley Jr. wrote, "We are left with the numbing, benumbing thought that we owe nothing to Plato and Aristotle, nothing to the prophets who wrote the Bible, nothing to the generations who fought for freedoms activated in the Bill of Rights." He called for "a rebirth of gratitude for those who have cared for us, living and, mostly, dead. The high moments of our way of life are their gifts to us." John Adams captured the grateful attitude when he acknowledged the hardships of this vale of tears while celebrating it all the same (if in anachronistic language): "Griefs upon griefs! Disappointments upon disappointments. What then? This is a gay, merry world notwithstanding."

Come out and enjoy the group and the friendly competition. Just bring your camera and your smile.Spotlight on Veterans DayOn Sunday, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, Cherrywood will honor those who sacrificed for their nation. Veterans Day honors each and every veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces regardless of whether they served in war or during peace time, whether they were infantry grunts, mess cooks, mail handlers, sailors, marine, pilots or airmen. In President Eisenhowers words in formalizing Veterans Day in 1954, Let us solemnly remember the sacrifices of all those who served valiantly and selflessly to preserve our heritage and freedom. Veterans Day arose out of Armistice Day, first celebrated in 1919, to remember those who paid the last full measure of sacrifice in World War I. In most World War I allied nations, it is celebrated as Remembrance Day. Following World War II, a movement originating in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1947 led to Congressional action in 1954 to change the focus from the World War I armistice to recognition of the service of all veterans. However, the traditional focus of national Veterans Day services was preserved at the Tomb of the Unknown in Arlington National Cemetery with the laying of a Presidential wreath. The first tomb was dedicated to Armistice Day 1921 followed by World War II and Korean unknowns in 1958. A Vietnam unknown was later identified and the empty crypt is now dedicated to those missing in action. The unrelenting passage of time forces the passing of the baton to each succeeding generation, consequently there is less and less focus on those who served in World War II, Korea, Southeast Asia and even the first Gulf War as the baton is passed to those veterans who serve and served in the Global War on Terror and have paid the price of 6000-plus killed and thousands more maimed. Thus, I think it important that before our collective memories completely erase them from history, we pay a tribute to the veterans of the nations longest war, some might say a completely forgotten or even a non-war, the Cold War. The veterans of the Cold War are largely ignored and even forgotten by the public, the government and even many of their brothers in arms who believe the only good war is a got one!Friday, November 9, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, November 9, 2012 www.smcitizen.com own people are left to fend for themselves. There are areas in New York and New Jersey that have been totally wiped out with these people losing everything. Where is our military that could build platforms and set up tents as emergency shelters along with mess tents to supply food for these people? During wars that our country engages in we could supply our troops with shelter, food supplies and medical assistance anywhere in the world. Why cant these areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy be declared a war zone and build these tent cities wherever necessary? Jerry Segovis Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Iam not the kind of person looking for a handout or anything free. When somebody offers me something free, I know there is a catch somewhere, and as long as I still have a slice of sanity in my noodle soup, nobody is going to catch me. Before I had made this a hard and fast rule the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I took a company up on their free offer of three days and two nights in a marvelous resort hotel. All you have to do, the person on the phone said, is listen to a short presentation. That short presentation took exactly three days and two nights. By the time we were done and ready to come home we were exhausted. How many times can you say no, and for it to register in the person to which it is directed? Obviously, from our experience, there is no answer to that question. I learned my lesson and have never accepted a free Free is as free gives and I dont like free, usually OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder offer since. Not that I have not had the opportunity, I just am highly suspicious of anything that contains that five-letter word free. Recently an event happened that has upgraded my thoughts concerning the word free. The day began as usual, which included a trip to the local grocery store and the bakery department for the obligatory Apple Fritter. A day without an Apple Fritter is a day I do not want to get out of bed. This one thing drives me out of my cozy bed in the morning and puts a little bit of getup in my get-along. I am not sure if an Apple Fritter a day will keep the doctor away, but who am I to challenge such likelihood? Personally, I would rather err on the side of the Apple Fritter. It all began years ago when my wife insisted I add more fruit to my diet. It was then I discovered the marvelous delicacy of the old-fashioned Apple Fritter. Just the word apple makes it a fruit in my mind. My wife and I have had very few disputes during the almost half-century of our relationship but this is one. She feels an Apple Fritter does not qualify as a fruit. I think she is rather fruity along this line myself; however, I am too wise and love life too much to actually say it to her. What I say under my breath and behind her back does me no harm whatsoever. My argument is that there is enough Apple in an Apple Fritter to qualify it for a fruit. I am not sure who has won this argument, but I am not going to challenge it. Rather, I will enjoy the fruity nature of my delectable Apple Fritter. Getting back to the incident that has changed my mind about free. I entered the grocery store, walked back to the bakery department and selected a freshly baked Apple Fritter. It was about all I can do to keep from eating it between the bakery department and the cashier counter. We all have our crosses to bear, and this is one of mine. I need to wait until I get to my office where I can leisurely enjoy one of the great delicacies of life. Also, no one can see me eat it, especially, you know who. I got to the checkout counter and handed over, reluctantly, my Apple Fritter in order to pay for it. It is the best $.79 I spend every day. Then the inevitable happened. Im sorry, the young lady behind the counter said, but there is something wrong with this Apple Fritter. Boy, did she have my attention. I was about to give her a piece of my mind. Who did she think she was? My wife? I wanted to give her a spicy lecture on the importance of the Apple Fritter in question. In my mind, there was nothing wrong with this Apple Fritter. I do not often get my dander up. After all, I do not have the hair I used to have, so it is rather difficult to do it. This rather came close for me. As I stood there steaming, she looked at me and said, Im sorry, the pricing is wrong on this Apple Fritter. I guess the bakery department made a mistake. She then paused for a moment, did something on the cash machine and then said some words that caused me to dance in the aisles. Im sorry that this mistake happened, so according to our store policy, this Apple Fritter is free. I stood there unable to speak. All my reservations about free, went out the window. I smiled. I smiled a smile that went from one end of the store to the other. Then to make sure I understood correctly I asked her, Are you sure this is free? When she answered in the affirmative, I gently picked up that free Apple Fritter and departed from the store not afraid for anybody to see my Apple Fritter and me together. The only other free offer I ever accept is from God. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23 KJV). Gods gift carries with it marvelous compensations both now and eternally. Gods free is free indeed.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

The Cold War (1947-1991) was so named because there was no direct military action since both sides possessed nuclear weapons and because their use would probably guarantee mutual assured destruction. (Many of us remember duck and cover drills). Rather, it featured a series of political and military skirmishes fought on the periphery, some of which broke out into hot war with client states of the various members of NATO and/or the Warsaw Pact, I.e. Korea, Southeast Asia. Probably the most memorable of these skirmishes are the Berlin Airlift, erection of the Berlin Wall, Cuban missile crisis, deployment of cruise missiles to western Europe and a little known event from the fall of 1983 Operation Able Archer. Two of these (the Cuban missile crises and Able Archer) brought the world to the threshold of all-out nuclear war. The Cold War was fought by hundreds of thousands of veterans, most of whom were drafted or draft motivated. They served in bomber and missile forces, the submarine fleet and on the trip wire lines of Western Europe and Korea. There is little appreciation for the fact that even at the height of the Southeast Asian conflict, more GIs were serving in Europe than in Southeast Asia. Thousands more served in Korea, Okinawa and Japan. Of course this does not included the missile, bomber and submarine alert forces at home. These shadow warriors stood alert away from home and family; carried out countless training drills and probed the envelope constantly testing the resolve of our primary foe. Although only infrequently subjected to direct combat the nature of the drills and the conditions under which air/seaborne/missile alerts were carried out in many cases made them just as hazardous as combat operations. There are no statistics as to the actual casualty count; however, there were more then 2,500 non-hostile deaths in West Germany between 1945 and 1975, more than the total losses in Afghanistan for a 10-year period; yet these veterans go largely unrecognized. There is no Cold War Victory Medal or campaign ribbon; those who served from 1947 to 1950, 1954 to 1961 and from 1975 to 1990 are not even eligible for the American Legion or the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Let us not forget these shadow warriors who were the victors in the Cold War! In a curious footnote to history, the Cold War would end on the weekend of Veterans Day 1989 when East Germany surrendered to the demand of its citizens for freedom and an end to the standoff between East and West and opened the Berlin Wall, much as the Armistice called for by Imperial Germany in 1918 which led to the end of hostilities. In closing, as a veteran of the Southeast Asia Conflict, I must acknowledge the 30th anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, dedicated on Nov. 13, 1982.Article by CMSgt. Fred OHern USAF (Ret.):The Veteran I raised by hand to recognize the colonel passing by The shuffling gray-hair in between, he never caught my eye But, he saw me and my salute and snapped his hand Up to his brow and straightened up, a sudden, different man. The colonel smiled, and as did I, he saw the mans mistake Well, if he thought Id saluted him, it might just serve to make His day a bit more proud as he recalls another day When he served on land, or sea, or in war far way. Was it Ardennes or on the beach, he watched his buddies die? And penned a note to their mom or sis and paused to wonder why They go the golden BB while he cam through unscathed A victory parade in 45 crowds cheered and flags they waved. But then he was forgotten, through Korea, Vietnam Nothing left heroic in a shuffling gray-haired man Waiting now alone to die, though part of him did die In mud, sand, snow or in cold German skies. And who cares for one now old and gray, with clothes illfit and in the way Of younger troops with things to do and new wars far away? But I care now as I saw change in the old mans eye and stride As he marched head high to pass me by, his head now high with pride. Perhaps when I am old and gray, some young pup third my age Will raise his hand, salute to me and never stop to gauge The time in years apart are we, but know I never swerved From duty as I saw it, and like the old man, too, I served.By John Piowatty, LtCol USAF (Ret.) This poem depicts a true incident at a USAF base hospital. Lt. Col. Piowatty as a young captain in August 1967 led a flight of F-105 Thunderchiefs against the Paul Doumer Bridge outside Hanoi, North Vietnam. In spite of intense antiaircraft fire, his flight successfully destroyed the bridge in the first use of smart bombs that are now commonplace in the military. John went on to a distinguished and colorful career.From your reporterThe column in this issue of the Citizen has been largely devoted to the veterans of our community. It is fitting that this should be as we celebrate Veterans Day on Sunday, Nov. 11. Personally, I have had the honor and privilege to walk among heroes and I here and now thank them for their service to this great country of ours. Special thanks to CMSgt.

Friday, November 9, 2012 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com The campaign headquarters post mortem of an unsuccessful presidential candidate begins with a lament something like this: If we had carried Montana (3 electoral votes) we could have won it all. If only are sad but mildly comforting words. Every four years we get an opportunity to explain the mystery of the Electoral College. Writing this exposition for publication just after the election avoids any allegation that we intended to cause confusion and voter suppression. It is important to remember there would be no United States of America if the former colonies hadnt approved our Constitution. The new states had no intention of going out of business, particularly the smaller ones. They intended then and still insist to have a voice in Washington. Article I, Section 4 of the Constitution says the States will hold elections for Senators and Representatives. Congress can fiddle with some of the details, but the States are still in charge. Article II requires the States to participate in election of the President by having voters choose electors equal to the number of Senators and Representatives each State sends to Congress. Electors are nominated by political parties and appointed by the states. After citizens have voted, the electors cast their ballots and later transmit them to Congress to be counted. Why such a rigamarole? To preserve states rights the founders considered having state legislatures select the president. They dropped that idea because deadlocks would be likely if each state insisted on electing a favorite son or regional good ole boy. The framers of the Constitution also considered letting Congress select the president. On reconsideration they decided to fashion a system which would insulate the President from a political majority in Congress and from citizens who could be manipulated by promises and corruption. Before and after every presidential election, a few voices rise to suggest the Electoral College is outdated and should be abolished. They forget or choose to ignore that Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Fidel Castro, and Hugo Chavez were elected to power by direct votes of the people. One of my favorite national columnists, Mark Shields, wrote recently that The Electoral College Must Go. He said it is absolutely anti-democratic and all the democracies created since the end of World War II have managed to function without an electoral college. We have to disagree for the single reason that the United States is not and was not intended to be a democracy. We are a successful 225 year old constitutional republic. Would we prefer to be a European social democracy? Would we be better off? We dont think so. As one historian put it, The democracy genie was quickly put back in the bottle. Given the current state of party politics, we believe the founders had great foresight when they reasoned that the president should not be chosen by legislatures, by Congress, or by popular vote of the people. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, November 9, 2012 For a native New Yorker, who was raised across the George Washington Bridge in New Jersey, TV watching last week was built mostly around Hurricane Sandy. There were a lot of familiar sites both shown and talked about as Manhattan, Staten Island and the Jersey Shore (the area, not the TV show) were highlighted as the areas most damaged by the wind and water, and Long Island, which had the devastating fire that swept through Breezy Point. Some held particular memories, especially New Jersey. There were two sites along the Shore (they didnt call it the beach when I was there, dont know what they do now) that brought recollections of past years. One was pictures of the town of Tuckerton, which leads to an area called Mystic Islands, where for a while in the 1960s my parents had a summer home. It was kind of nice the only time I ever drove (is that the right word?) a boat was at their home they had a small, slow-powered boat that I learned to steer, with some effort. The engine was in the back so it was backward from a car you turned the wheel to the right to go left, and so forth. It was also where I learned my young wifes dedication to family. My folks had ordered a load of gravel to spread over their sandy yard, and we were going down there on the weekend. Dad, however, got sick, and they were a day late, but with a great deal of help from my wife, we got the gravel spread ourselves so they wouldnt have to do it. I cant imagine what that area, and that house, looks like now. The other area was Island Beach. Before we were married, my wife, her sister and I went down to Island Beach, crossing over the Toms River Bridge. Now Im reading about all the devastation in that area. On Staten Island, I had a great aunt who lived in St. George, on a hill overlooking the ferry slip. I assume that she is long gone, but that area probably got hit by winds, mostly. It was way too high to have a surge. I watched with interest as the news showed a ferry coming in as service was resumed, but they never showed the view of Staten Island from the ferry, which I would have liked to see. We always took the ferry then there was no Verrazano Bridge, I dont believe, and it was too far to drive south in Jersey to cross the existing bridge. I wrote a friend in northern New Jersey, and she responded that her area, about 15 miles west of Manhattan, had some wind damage and no power, but she and her family were OK. I thought it was kind of ironic how, many years ago, we moved to Florida, where you have to be wary of hurricanes, but here we were escaping with little effect while the New York area was suffering. All my relatives have moved out of New Jersey, so there werent many others to contact. My old high school put a notice on Facebook that classes were canceled at some point. Anytime people ask you to help the Red Cross, even a small amount can help. If anything, we know how to survived hurricanes and live with the aftermath the people in New York really havent got that experience. You can plan for all sorts of things in life, but when Mother Nature decides to throw you a curve, theres not much you can do about it. Thats why, at the beginning of hurricane season each year, were reminding you to be prepared. After all, you never know.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Yes, tis the season for, well, you know, scams and thieves. A couple of weeks ago, our sheriffs substation investigated incidents at Walmart, where car windows were smashed in during some smash and grab attempts. As of this writing, no suspects have been caught. There are some precautions that everyone should take. The most obvious is not to put things that you buy in your vehicle, where they are visible to the public, and then leave your vehicle to go into another store, or a restaurant, or to do some chores. When you buy items at the store, if you cant put them out of sight in a trunk or somewhere like that, go straight home. Take your items into your house. Dont put your car in jeopardy of being broken into. Big parking lots are the perfect spots for thieves. Its easy for them to blend in with crowds, wait until its clear, and then quickly get away with your items. But other areas are also vulnerable. The other thing we have to be aware of is the people who try some scams against honest people. There are so many that its impossible to list them all, so heres a simple list of things to be aware of. Never give out personal information on the phone to someone you dont know if you didnt initiate the call. That includes obvious things like Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, and so forth, but also simple things like your address and, yes, even your name. Some of these people make several phone calls at once, and talk to the first person that answers. If they have to ask your name, just tell them, Hey, you called me. If you dont know who you called, good bye. Never invite anyone into your home unless youve initiated the visit (repairmen, etc.) and never, no matter what, leave them alone to have the run of your house. Never, ever, send money to anyone you dont know, even if they tell you its a good faith payment for a prize you won. And if that person says theyre a relative, do some checking before you send the money (the grandson stuck in Panama scam). Remember, you cant win a sweepstakes that you didnt enter. If youre told that you won, hang up. Finally, its an old saying, but if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Protect yourself, your purchases and your money, and youll have a much happier holiday. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

I know that they were told to evacuate their homes and move to areas that would be considered more safe. Just because they were told to evacuate their homes does not mean that they had the ability to follow these instructions. You must remember that they were on an island with no way that a mass evacuation could have handled the number of residents that made this area their home. With all of this understood there is no amount of talk that can provide food and shelter for these Americans. They need action now, not tomorrow and not next week because these New York residents simply have no basic transportation, food or shelter.

BY MICHAEL W. GROCHOWSKI November 11 is more than just a national holiday; Veterans Day is a time to honor the men and women who risk their lives to protect our freedom. We at Social Security ask you to join us in saluting the men and women of the armed forces. Be sure to say thank you to a veteran on this important day. For those who return home with injuries, it will be our turn to help them. If you know any wounded veterans, please let them know about Social Securitys Wounded Warriors website. You can find it at www.socialsecurity.gov/woundedwarriors. The Wounded Warriors website answers a number of commonly asked questions, and shares other useful information about disability benefits, including how veterans can receive expedited processing of disability claims. It is important to note that benefits available through Social Security are different than those from the Department of Veterans Affairs and require a separate application. The expedited process is used for military service members who become disabled while on active military service on or after October 1, 2001, regardless of where the disability occurs. Even active duty military who continue to receive pay while in a hospital or on medical leave should consider applying for disability benefits if they are unable to work due to a disabling condition. Active duty status and receipt of military pay does not necessarily prevent payment of Social Security disability benefits. Receipt of military payments should never stop someone from applying for disability benefits from Social Security. A person cannot receive Social Security disability benefits while engaging in substantial work for pay or profit. However, the work activity is the controlling factor and not the amount of pay the person receives or military duty status. Learn more by visiting www.socialsecurity.gov/woundedwarriors. We at Social Security thank all veterans and members of the armed services for all that they do not only on Veterans Day, but every day of the year.Michael W.

The week is Give Wildlife A Brake, a program to increase the awareness of motorists, stressing that defensive driving can benefit people as well as animals crossing the road. Noah was the first person to give animals a break when he loaded them on the ark. All went well until four gnus came up the gangplank. Their handler explained, You see, first theres the good gnus and then theres the bad gnus. Obviously, Noah didnt accept the bad gnus. If Noah had lived in the United States today he would have had bad news. When he couldnt finish the ark in the time that God had given him, Noah complained to God, First, I had to get a construction permit, and I had to hire an engineering firm to redraw the plans to conform with the building codes. Then I got into a fight with OSHA claimed the ark needed a sprinkler system and floatation devices. My neighbor objected, claiming I was violating zoning ordinances by building the ark in my front yard, so I had to get a variance from the city planning commission. Then, I had problems getting enough wood for the ark, because there was a ban on cutting trees to protect the Spotted Owl. I finally convinced the U.S. Forest Service that I really needed the wood to save the owls. However, the Fish and Wildlife Service wouldnt let me take the two owls. The carpenters went on strike. I had to negotiate a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board before anyone would do any work. When I started rounding up the animals, an animal rights group sued me. They objected to my taking only two of each kind aboard. Meanwhile, the EPA notified me that I could not complete the Ark without filing an environmental impact statement on Your proposed flood. They didnt take very kindly to the idea that they had no jurisdiction over the conduct of the Creator of the Universe. Then, the Army Corps of Engineers demanded a map of the proposed flood plain. I sent them a globe. I am trying to resolve a complaint filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that I am practicing discrimination by not taking atheists aboard. The IRS has seized my assets, claiming that Im building the ark in preparation to flee the country to avoid paying taxes. I just got a notice from the state that I owe them some kind of user tax and failed to register the ark as a recreational water craft. And finally, the ACLU got the courts to issue an injunction against further construction of the Ark, stating that since God is flooding the earth, its a religious event, and, therefore unconstitutional. God said to Noah, Forget about building the ark. Noah looked up hopefully. You mean youre not going to destroy the earth, Lord? No, He said sadly. I dont have to. The government already has. Band aidThe Department of the Interior has changed the metal bands used to tag migratory birds. The bands had the address of the Washington Biological Survey, abbreviated as Wash. Biol. Surv. until the agency received a letter from an unhappy camper: Dear Sirs: While camping last week, I shot one of your birds. I think it was a crow. I followed the cooking instructions on the leg tag and want to tell you it tasted horrible. The bands are now marked Fish & Wildlife Service.Wild lifeUtah wildlife officials are concerned for the safety of a man dressed as a goat in a herd of goats. I kid you not. My wife and I were watching a wildlife program about the cheetah. I said, You know why theyre endangered, dont you? She nodded. Of course, Cheetahs never prosper. This wildlife book you sold me is nothing but pictures of animals. Biologists have recently produced immortal frogs by removing their vocal cords. They cant croak.Hop highA kangaroo kept getting out of his zoo enclosure. The zoo officials put up a ten-foot fence. He was out the next morning, just roaming around the zoo. A twenty-foot fence was put up. Again he got out. When the fence was forty feet high, a camel in the next enclosure asked the kangaroo, How high do you think theyll go? The kangaroo said, About a thousand feet, unless somebody locks the gate at night.

Read the classifieds Give wildlife a break this week PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank E The Environmental MagazineD ear E arthTalk: What is currently being done in the U.S. to ensure the wise use and safety of our nation s groundwater? -Kev in O rr, Baton Rouge, LA Keeping fresh water safe and abundant is a challenge for all societies. In the U.S., about half of the countrys drinking water comes from groundwater sources. Many rural areas derive all of their drinking water from groundwater, which also provides 40 percent of the irrigation needs of American farmers. While underground aquifers may at one point have seemed limitless, huge demand for water (especially in arid areas like the Southwest) means that groundwater reserves are precious and need to be carefully managed with conservation in mind. Also, groundwater is easily contaminated by any number of common man-made products like gasoline, oil, road salts, pesticides, fertilizers and other chemicals. Management of specific water supplies is decentralizedlocal and regional water authorities manage supplies for municipalities and counties around the countrybut oversight comes from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as mandated by the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act. Enacted in 1972, the Clean Water Act addresses water pollution in general and requires everyone, but especially large water users including large industrial and agricultural operations, to deal with their water inflows and outflows in a responsible, non-polluting manner. Meanwhile, 1974s Safe Drinking Water Act requires the EPA to set standards for drinking water quality that the 150,000 public water entities across the country must meet. Third party laboratories provide detailed analyses to ensure that local supplies live up to the EPAs expectations. These laws work together to keep groundwater supplies safe, but environmentalists would like to see both strengthened substantially in the face of drought-inducing global warming and other threats. While regulation and enforcement of industry and agriculture are important for protecting our limited groundwater supplies, consumers also must play a role. The Groundwater Foundation, a Nebraska-based non-profit working to educate people and inspire action to ensure sustainable, clean groundwater for future generations, suggests taking short showers, shutting off the faucet while brushing teeth and shaving, running full loads of dishes and laundry, checking for leaky PHOTO BY RON RATNERInternational Games DaySaturday was International Games Day all over the world.

But it all will pay off down the line. Things ease up in time for weekend fun with family and/or friends. TAURUS (April 2 0 to May 20) Your genuine concern for others could prompt you to promise more than you can deliver. Its best to modify your plans now, before you wind up overcommitted later. GEM INI ( May 21 to J une 20) A situation that seems simple at first glance needs a more thorough assessment before you give it your OK. Dig deeper for information that might be hidden from view. C ANC ER (June 21 to J uly 22) Careful: Right now, things might not be quite what they appear. Even the intuitive Crab could misread the signs. Get some solid facts before you act on your suspicions. LEO (July 23 to A ug. 22) Your energy levels are high, allowing you to complete those unfinished tasks before you take on a new project. A social invitation could come from an unlikely source. V IRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You might think youre helping, but unless youre asked for a critique, dont give it. If you are asked, watch what you say. Your words should be helpful, not hurtful. LIB RA ( Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your attempt at mediating disputes might meet some opposition at first. But once youre shown to be fair and impartial, resistance soon gives way to cooperation. SCORPI O ( Oct. 23 to N ov 21) Go ahead. Reward yourself for helping settle a disturbing workplace situation. On another note: A personal relationship might be moving to a higher level. S AGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec. 21) A sudden change of heart by a colleague might create some momentary uncertainty. But stay with your original decision and, if necessary, defend it. CAP RICORN ( Dec. 22 to J an. 19) Rely on a combination of your sharp instincts along with some really intense information-gathering to help you make a possibly life-changing decision. AQUARIUS (Jan. 2 0 to Fe b. 18) Instead of worrying if that new person in your life will stay or leave, spend all that energy on strengthening your relationship so it becomes walkout resistant. PI SCE S ( Fe b. 19 to March 20) A sudden financial dry spell could reduce your cash flow almost to a trickle. But by conserving more and spending less, youll get through the crunch in good shape.

Likewise, the group advocates that consumers recycle used motor oils, limit the amount of fertilizer and pesticides used on plants, lawns and gardens, and generally reduce household chemical use. And leftover chemicals should be disposed of at hazardous waste collection sites (find one near you at earth911.com), not down the drain or into the gutter. Another way to help is to initiate a Source Water Protection process, which involves locating local groundwater sources and identifying ways to protect and conserve them. Anyone interested in doing so can download the Groundwater Foundations free Source Water Assessment and Protection Workshop Guide, which has detailed information about a number of source water protection strategies and additional information on areas where the Safe Drinking Water Act and Clean Water Act intersect. Funding for the guide was provided by the EPAs Office of Groundwater and Drinking Water, which considers it a must-read for officials, policymakers and activists deliberating land use and water quality issues.CONTACTS: Groundwater Foundation, www.groundwater.org; EPA Office of Groundwater and Drinking Water, www.epa.gov/aboutepa/ow.html#ground.Dear E arthTalk: W hat is the Burrowing Owl Conservation N etwork and why is it so important to put so much effort into saving one species? Ginny Bateman, Portland, OR Western burrowing owls (Athene cunicularia) are tiny, long-legged members of the owl family, native to the Americas and preferring open landscapes where they can dig new holes or use existing ones (such as abandoned prairie dog, skunk or armadillo homes) to nest and rear their young. Unlike most other owl species, these small but charismatic birds are more often seen out and about during daylight hours, but they are most active and do their primary feeding at night, preferring a diet of small rodents and large insects. Once a common species in California and across North America, the Western burrowing owl has become a rarer and rarer sight over the last three decades given habitat loss and other environmental perils the bird faces. Biologists consider the bird an indicator of wider ecosystem health, so if its population numbers are healthy then local ecosystems are likely thriving. But these days the bird is endangered in Canada and threatened in Mexico, is a state endangered species in Colorado, and is considered a species of special concern in Florida and most of the western U.S. It is also listed on the International Union for Conservation of Natures (IUCNs) international Red List of endangered and threatened species (albeit as a species of Least Concern in comparison with others in more dire straits). A group of dedicated birders, conservationists, biologists and concerned citizens in San Franciscos East Bay came together to protect dwindling burrowing owl populations locally but ended up creating a movement that spans the entire North American continent. Their group, the Burrowing Owl Conservation Network (BOCN) believes that burrowing owls are vital to maintaining healthy, functioning ecosystems, and as such is working on several fronts to help protect habitat and reverse the animals population slide. First and foremost, BOCN works to conserve habitat for burrowing owls in California and beyond, including constructing artificial burrows to help re-establish burrowing owl colonies while larger ecosystem restoration efforts are underway. Teaching children and communities about ways they can help protect and improve burrowing owl habitat is another important part of BOCNs work. Other ways the group helps the owls is by advocating for legislation and policy changes that encourage conservation of habitat, networking with like-minded individuals and institutions, and conducting field and laboratory research to increase understanding about how to help burrowing owls and create habitat conditions ideal for their survival. The fact that burrowing owl populations in other parts of the world are rebounding gives hope to BOCN and other wildlife advocates and environmentalists. The birds are common and widespread in Central and South America, where they inhabit fields and even sometimes parks in urban areas. Whether the birds can replicate their success in Latin America up north remains to be seen. As for what readers can do to help, learning about the behavior, biology and habitat needs of wild animals like the burrowing owl is a sure way to develop respect for natures inhabitants and a lifelong willingness to protect them. And nothing beats witnessing burrowing owls go about their rounds. Seeing them in the wild is enough to convince anyone that they are worth fighting to protect.CONTACTS: BOCN, www.burrowingowlconservation.org; IUCN Red List, www.iucnredlist.org.E arthTalk is written and edited by Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss and is a registered trademark of E The E nvironmental Magaz ine ( www emagaz ine. com).

More photos, Page 28. Nearly 2,000 students from public schools across Marion County will participate in Marion Countys official Veterans Day Program set for Monday, Nov. 12. This is the sixth year the school district has presented Marion Countys official Veterans Day ceremony. The event takes place at the Ocala / Marion County Veterans Memorial Park (Southeast Fort King Street and 25th Avenue, Ocala) at 11 a.m. and is the official Veterans Day Ceremony for the park. Superintendent of Schools Jim Yancey begins the ceremony, with students from various schools providing music including Lake Weir and West Port High schools, Dr. N.H. Jones, Hammett Bowen, and Maplewood Elementary schools, and Hillcrest school. Students will recognize local veterans for their service, and local families whove lost loved ones to military service will present a memorial wreath at the parks monument. Junior ROTC (Reserve Officers Training Corps) units from Belleview, Dunnellon, Forest, Lake Weir, North Marion, Vanguard, and West Port High schools, along with Francis Marion Military Academy, will participate. The Hammett Bowen Elementary color guard will also take part. A US Marines Honor Guard from Orlando will provide a military gun salute and post the colors for the ceremony. Pilots from the Leeward Air Ranch War-birds will fly over the park in military formation. The public is encouraged to attend the ceremony. Veterans ceremony is Monday PHOTO BY RON RATNERLaw enforcement appreciationThe 17th annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Barbecue, presented by The Florida Thorobred Fillies, was held at the Southeastern Livestock Pavilion.

Blair wins; FDLE delays transition FILE PHOTO BY JIM CLARKChris Blair is shown earlier this year at a meeting of the State Road 200 Coalition. BY JIM CLARK EditorJust when you thought things had settled down in the Marion County sheriffs race, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement stepped in to add some confusion.. In the hottest race of the local election, Blair defeated Bernie DeCastro, 73 percent to 26 percent. It has been a roller coaster ride for Blair, who lost in the Republican primary to Dan Kuhn, who dropped out of the race after a scandal. GOP officials decided to put Blair back in position to win, but ballots had already been printed with Kuhns name, so a vote for Kuhn meant a vote for Blair. DeCastro, from the Constitution Party, tried to get the early votes cast before Kuhns withdrawal thrown out, but a judge ruled against him. Blair then celebrated the win Tuesday night and was prepared to work with Sheriff Ed Dean, who is retiring, on the transition. But along comes the FDLE. In a brief, pointed statement Wednesday morning, Dean said, I congratulate Chris Blair on his election. I understand the need for an orderly transition of the office and I was prepared to begin this process. However, I have been requested this morning by Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey to West Marion Hospital CEO to speakThe State Road 200 Coalition will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, Nov. 12, at the Collins Health Resource Center, Building 300, Suite 303, TimberRidge Medical Park, on Southwest 110th Street off State Road 200 in Ocala. The meeting begins at 1 p.m. with refreshments available at 12:30. The scheduled speaker is Ginger Carroll, CEO of West Marion Hospital. The meeting is open to the public.
