Corridor students played a big part. Above, the Hammett Bowen Elementary School Music Club entertained with Fifty Nifty United States. Above, members of Hammett Bowen Elementary Schools Color Guard march during the Veterans Day ceremony. At left, Edwin Sewell, a fifth grader from Hammett Bowen, reads his essay, What Veterans Day Means To Me. His complete essay is published today on Page 8. Some memorial crosses were placed at the opposite end of the field from the stage at Veterans Memorial Park for last Mondays ceremony for Veterans Day. Light Up Ocala, the communitys official kick off of the holiday season, is held the Saturday before Thanksgiving, Nov. 17 this year, on the Downtown Square and surrounding streets. This years event will see many changes to those of years past. With attendance levels growing each year, the event was literally busting at the seams. To accommodate the larger crowds, the city will be spreading Light up Ocala expands in area Effective Nov. 19, the Ocala Social Security office will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. a reduction of 30 minutes each weekday. In addition, beginning Jan. 2, 2013, the office will close to the public at noon every Wednesday. While agency employees will continue to work their regular hours, this shorter public window will allow them to complete face-toface interviews and process claims work without incurring the cost of overtime. The significantly reduced funding provided by Congress under the continuing resolution for the first six months of the fiscal year makes it impossible for the agency to provide the overtime needed to handle service to the public as it has done in the past. In addition, on Nov. 23, the day after Thanksgiving, all Social Security field offices will be closed to the public. As we did last year, employees working that day will focus on reducing backlogged workloads. Most Social Security services do not require a visit to a local office. Many services, including applying for retirement, disability or Social Security makes cut in afternoon office hours PLEASESEEHOURS PAGE3 The City of Ocala is in preliminary discussions with the New York Yankees organization. The dialogue is centered on the possible relocation of the Yankees Class A Advanced affiliate minor league team currently situated in Tampa and does not include Yankees' Spring Training. Any proposal for relocation to Ocala is contingent upon approval by the Ocala City Council, Major League Baseball, Minor League Baseball and the Florida State League, states Anthony Bruno of Yankee Global Enterprises, LLC. The City is excited about the opportunity to investigate the potential immediate and collateral benefits that might be gained from its association with a prestigious professional sports franchise and is currently exercising due diligence, says Ocala Mayor Kent Guinn. Movement of this particular team is being considered as a means to bring a professional sports franchise to an underserved market with a strong fan support base. The Tampa Yankees were established in 1994. In 1996 they moved to the new George M. Steinbrenner Field, the New York Yankees' spring training facility. Since their inception they have won five league championships, in 1994, 2001, 2004, 2009, and 2010. The City of Ocala and New York Yankees anticipate release of further information concerning this proposal in the coming weeks as they each continue exploration of the issues and development of findings.

HOURS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 A new voice will lead the Marion County Board of County Commissioners. On Nov. 6 at their regularly scheduled board meeting, commissioners voted to have Commissioner Kathy Bryant take the chairmans seat. Bryant is serving her first term on the Board of County Commissioners; this is her first time serving as chair. Commissioner Carl Zalak will take the vice chair seat. This is Zalaks first term on the commission and first time serving as vice chair. As chairman, Bryant will manage board meetings, public hearings and workshops. She will also establish board priorities and serve as a board ambassador at many public events. In the absence of the chair, the vice chair will assume these responsibilities. Bryant replaces former commissioner Charlie Stone as chair. During her tenure on the board, Bryant considers her involvement with consolidating public safety communications, bringing the Ocala 489 industrial park to fruition, and solving Marion Countys solid waste dilemma through purchasing air space at the Bushnell ACMS landfill to be among her top accomplishments. For her upcoming year as chair, she would like to continue to target economic development. I want to keep the board focused on economic development and make sure we continue moving our community forward, Bryant said. One of the other things I look forward to this year is hopefully putting together our solid waste authority. Ill also continue to make sure we are fiscally responsible. Citizens elected Bryant to the commission in 2010. Since joining the commission, she has served as the board liaison to the Tourist Development Council, among other local agencies. Bryant also serves on the Board of Directors for the Florida Association of Counties and serves as vice chair of that agencys health and human services policy leadership team.

Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com The City of Crystal River and the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce invite you to submit an application for the 26th annual Manatee Festival, Jan. 19-20, in downtown Crystal River. This festival has a long-standing tradition of fine artists displaying their artwork in a juried environment. January is traditionally the start of the outdoor festival route, and last year the Manatee Festival brought in more than 15,000 visitors during the two day period. A few vendor spaces are still available for this renowned fine art festival, therefore apply today. We are inviting those artists who have been entered in juried shows before, and wish to present their skills to the public in a well-known and well attended event. We are seeking skilled artisans who work in all media, including clay, metal, oil, wood, watercolor, gold and silver, organic materials, photography and mixed media. While artists from all over the nation are invited and do attend, we would like to extend a special welcome to local Florida artists wishing to showcase their work. This festival draws the public from all over the nation, including many winter visitors from major metropolitan areas in the north. This is a wonderful opportunity to increase name recognition, make sales, and take part in a festival that has a strong local cultural background. Come enjoy the weather and mingle with fellow artists. Make friendships and memories that last a lifetime. While you are here take the opportunity to enjoy a few moments with the creature often associated with the folklore of mermaids, the Manatee. Citrus County and Crystal River have many opportunities to enrich your knowledge of Florida history and see why we are called The Gem of Floridas Nature Coast. For those wishing to apply, simply go to www.floridamanateefestival.com and download an application, or call Jeff Inglehart at the Citrus County Chamber 352-795-3149.

In addition, both he and his partner Fred have to work closely with our committees and many clubs to make sure their functions go off smoothly. I love the work, especially outdoors. Ive never been one to sit in an office. Justin intimates. He has the perfect job for that, it would seem. Always greeting people with a friendly smile and good sense of humor, Justin enjoys the people as well as the work here at Cherrywood. He states that everyone here has always treated him well and made him feel right at home. When you see Justin, be sure to thank him for his hard work and thank him also for his service to our country. It is refreshing to see a young person with a deep commitment to his family; his country and to this community. Indeed Justin has an interesting past; a very bright future and he is an asset to our quality of life here at Cherrywood. From Your ReporterThis past week I had the high honor of taking part in our Veterans Day service. I thank the following individuals on the Board of the Cherrywood Veterans Club who made it possible; Bill Mahar, president; Richard Hurley, treasurer; Ruth Hurley, secretary and Marty Duesel, trustee. Lastly, and most important, I thank the veterans. Do you have an idea or suggestions on articles you would like to see in the Cherrywood Section of the Citizen? If so, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Your comments are always welcome and I do enjoy hearing from the readers. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 BY: LYNDA SPENCE M.S. County Extension ServiceIts funny how tough times have a way of bringing out the clever in each of us. Given a nudge, we surprise ourselves at how resourceful we can really be. This holiday season, decide to do it your way, not the advertisers way. Make your own set of rules. Seize these economic times to create a new normal for your holidays. Read on for ideas. Consider giving gifts to children only. Its hard to convince a child that opening a present is not the best part of the gift experience. Adults, though, are able to see a bigger picture. Gift certificates are gifts from the heart. With a little creativity, you can save your wallet from being malled during the holiday season. Remember, the goal of gift-giving should be to give pleasure to the person receiving it. With the recipient in mind, consider giving gift certificates for errands, chores or favors. Some gift certificate ideas: grocery shopping, babysitting, cooking, baking, mowing the lawn, pulling weeds, ironing, recording music, washing a car, cleaning a home or garage or putting photos in albums. Pass it on. We all lead busy lives. The gift of time is invaluable. Do you have a special interest or talent? How about offering a lesson on guitar playing, cake decorating, painting, oil/tire changing, knitting, fishing, bread making, wood working, candy making or target practice? Re-gifting is the talk of the town, and thats not a bad thing. Sometimes, the story that goes along with the gift may just outdo the gift. Consider giving the last great book you bought with a note about what the book meant to you. Or, create a journal of a vacation and include pictures and a map of the destination. If you must spend money, consider unique gifts you can purchase for under $20. Consider giving smartphone apps, a rare coin, gas cards, unusual candy or a piggy bank partially full of change. Gift basket ideas Small gift baskets, done right, are eye candy. Let your imagine fly. Pick a theme and go to town. Beverages: Cocoa or tea kit. Honey: Jar of local honey, honey dipper and package of gourmet crackers. Cheese: Cheese and cheese knife specifically for slicing that type of cheese. Correspondence: Homemade notes or greeting cards, stamps, pen. Gardening: Gloves, seeds from your garden, a small hand-painted flower pot. Fishing: Lures, hooks and line. Cooking: A favorite recipe with a sampling of the delectable dish or treat. Remember, its not the gift; its the thought that counts. Put a new holiday gift-giving philosophy into practice this year and make it your new holiday normal. Imagine how fun it can be dreaming up the next great creative gift! Have fun with it!

I guess I can still legitimately praise George Tomyn and Dr. Diana Greene for the school superintendent campaign they ran. While all the attention was focused on the unfortunate events in the sheriffs race, which at this writing still isnt settled, Tomyn and Greene ran a quiet, seemingly positive campaign. Voters heard the qualifications from each, and didnt get the nasty, negative mailings, etc., that permeated other races. But just when you think everything was going along smoothly, Tomyn, less than 48 hours after winning the election. announced changes in his administrative staff to take effect on Nov. 26. Among those changes was the reassigning of Greene and Wally Wagoner, Tomyns primary opponent, to jobs that removed them from the deputy superintendent role that each held. Greene has become principal of Fessenden Elementary, and Wagoner, well, hes just reassigned and we dont know where. Tomyn insisted that these were just reassignments and not demotions, but come back a month from now and compare the current salaries of the pair to what they will be making then. I guess thats the people living up to the saying, To the victor belongs the spoils. Still, I cant help but think that the school system would have been better served if Greene and Wagoner had remained in their current jobs. Furthermore, it would seem to have been politically expedient for Tomyn to take the high road and keep these two people in their posts. They might have become allies, ensuring Tomyns re-election in the future. Now, I can just see the wheels turning for 2016. You can gear up right now for the school superintendent race, and you can bet that this move by Tomyn will be front and center in the debate. Hows that for having something to look forward to? Speaking of clean campaigns, there were a couple of others that went all right, too. In the race for supervisor of elections, Wes Wilcox easily outpointed Judge Cochran. Wilcox ran on his own record, choosing not to criticize Cochran, who had no experience in the elections office. The outcome was not a surprise, but neither mans reputation was tainted. Congratulations to both. And in the lone contested County Commission race, things went smoothly as Earl Arnett defeated Jessica Hadley. Both also stayed above the fray, and we even got a live phone call from Arnetts camp. Again, nice job by both. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

EDITORS NOTE: Today we yield our editorial space to Edwin Sewell, a fifth grader in Mrs. Del Valles class at Hammett Bowen Elementary. Edwin read this essay at Mondays Veterans Day event at Veterans Memorial Park in Ocala.BY EDWIN SEWELL Special to the Citizen The reason I like Veterans Day is because my grandpa was in the Marines. He served his country so that we may have freedom. People that serve in the armed forces help keep our country safe from terrorists that try to hurt our country. Many people have died in wars and this day is for us to remember those who died for our country and honor those who are still here. The second reason I like Veterans Day is because they got to drive cool vehicles like helicopters, tanks, and aircraft. They used these types of vehicles to fight in wars and try to defeat the enemy. These people are willing to risk their lives to help save our country. They deserve a lot of respect. When they go and fight they earn medals for doing heroic things such as saving people or other soldiers. The uniforms have stripes and many medals. The third reason I like Veterans Day is because my grandpa takes me to the wall in town that has all the names of people that died in the war and we try to find some of his friends. We look over all the names and I even tried to count them a few times but it was too many. We get to meet other people there and my grandpa will talk with them and we hear their family story as well. I met this one guy who was in a wheelchair and had only one arm, he was nice and told me what happen to his legs and arm. The fourth reason I like Veterans Day is because my grandpa comes over and we barbecue and eat well. My grandpa tells us stories about what it was like in boot camp and all the different places he had been. Sometimes I see my grandpa cry for his friends he lost. My grandpa was in the Vietnam War. He has some money from other countries that he showed us and told me one day he would give it to me and my sister. My mom and dad cook a lot of food that my grandpa likes and we eat until we cant eat any more. The final reason I like Veterans Day is because we live in a country where we are free and have many choices and we would not have this if it wasnt for people like my grandpa. The people who serve their country and fight for what is right. One day when I grow up I hope that there will not be any more wars so I dont have to fight. Maybe one day all the countries can learn to get along with one another. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY What Veterans Day means to me It wasnt a demotion! Oh, really? LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY BRYAN GOLDEN Special to the Citizen Thanksgiving is much more than a big meal with family and friends. Its a time to reflect on, and be thankful for, all of the good things you have. Even with all of the uncertainty and turmoil in the world, you have so much to be thankful for. Its important to be grateful, not just on Thanksgiving, but each and every day. Rather than lamenting what you feel is lacking in your life, begin each new day by developing an attitude of gratitude. Take inventory of your blessings and you will be surprised at just how much you have to be thankful for. If you have enough to eat, a place to live, a way to get around, people who care about you, or people you care about, then you are wealthy. If you lack any of these elements, you must still be grateful for what you do have, while striving to obtain whatever is absent. Focus on all positive aspects of your life. Take nothing for granted. Every morning, recharge your appreciation. Be happy for everything there is, not upset over what you feel is missing. Dreams of the future shouldnt diminish appreciation for the present. If all you do is concentrate on what you want, you wont enjoy today. Dont be jealous of others; what they do or have has no bearing on you. You can feel bitter or resentful for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you feel something is missing from your life, things arent going your way, or you have been treated unfairly. You may wonder, Why do these things always happen to me? Lifes problems tend to dominate your thoughts, turning your focus to what you feel is wrong. You may start to resent those who appear to be better off. Youre apt to dwell on things you think would make your life better if you had them. If only you had more money, more time, a bigger house, a different car, a different job, a different boss, had picked a different career, etc. Once your attitude becomes one of deficiency instead of abundance and appreciation, you can become overwhelmed by feelings of frustration and feel like a victim. As this happens, a consuming vicious cycle starts. Being bitter or resentful blows situations out of proportion. People who are bitter frequently find that their situations deteriorate and their mental and physical health decays. Its difficult, if not impossible, to achieve your goals while you are bitter or resentful. Regardless of what challenges might befall you, bitterness makes finding solutions much more elusive. There is no point to feeling bitter since it accomplishes nothing, harms you and makes things worse. Filling yourself with gratitude on a daily basis makes you feel good, while driving out negative feelings. Begin your practice of gratitude each morning as soon as you wake. Every day is a great day. If you have any doubts, try missing one. Take inventory of everything, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, that is good in your life. If it helps, make a written list of all things you are grateful for. Read your list every day. As you do this, you will build and reinforce your attitude of gratitude. Dont waste any time with what you feel you dont have. Keep things in perspective. Consider all the people who have overcome difficulties far worse than yours. Dont be consumed by your problems, there is always a solution. Maintaining an attitude of gratitude allows your mind to devise a resolution for your circumstances. Make everyday a day of Thanksgiving and you will be amazed how much better your life will become. Bryan Golden is the author of Dare to Live Without Limits.

READER OPINIONS INVITED Thanksgiving: So much to be thankful for EDITORS NOTE: As has been stated the past few weeks, we will not run I told you so or sour grapes letters concerning the election. Also, remember that letter writers are now limited to one letter per month. The laughing stockWhat is it that we do to continually make Florida the laughing stock of the United States every time there is a National Election? It seems that Tallahassee is unable to allow voters from our state to take part in an efficient, accurate, well run election. Our latest debacle from our Republican governor Scott is just the latest example of partisan politics where Democrats, independents, blacks and Hispanics are being dissuaded from voting. This latest election held on Nov. 6 is proof positive that those officials in Tallahassee are not looking for fair elections where every vote counts.

Friday, November 16, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, November 16, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Those in charge are making Florida the laughing stock of America and yes even the world where third world countries are laughing at us for calling our elections legitimate. How many businesses from America or from anywhere in the world will want to locate companies in Florida if we cant even run a statewide election in an honest and forthright manor. After each election we are being told that unanticipated problems show up, such as too many voters, too many amendments, not enough voting locations, somebody unplugged the voting machines and no one could find an outlet (joke), those in Tallahassee believed that more of us could vote in fewer locations and in fewer voting days, shortened voting hours, history doesnt count and lastly, no one will remember these problems during the next election period. Governor Scott can be proud and still hold his head high when stating those dozen or so illegal voters were stopped in their tracks because of his valiant efforts. Jerry Segovis Ocala If I were the devilAll seniors should remember Paul Harvey, but if you do or dont, please go on line to http://stg.do/9LDc to hear his prediction made on ABC April 3, l965, it only lasts 3 minutes. Regardless of your political persuasion, you will be able to confirm what a wise man Harvey was and how his If I were the devil is playing out in America today. It is scary so Satan must truly be smiling! The very principles that made us the greatest country in the world are no longer the backbone of our nation. We are now a nation who is openly turning away from God and we will pay the price for doing so. We have made our bed, now we will have to live with it. We have invited God to remove his blessings from America and he may just do that Dont be shocked to see us hit with more natural disasters than ever before as God has no choice but to bring us back to our knees, one way or the other. Get familiar with biblical history, for as then, He is still in charge! I pray I am wrong regarding the above, join me in this prayer. Wayne Rackley Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 N ow that we have gotten past the recent elections, we can get back to life as normal. Of course, I am not sure what normal really means. One mans normal is another mans over the cliff. I am not quite sure I am normal and I fear bringing this query to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. My fear is that she will tell me the truth. You know what we Americans think about the truth. There was a time when truth was a pretty stable thing. There were certain things that were absolute truth and no ifs, ands or buts about it. Those were the good old days. Nowadays truth is not as clear as it once was. What was true in the day, is now altogether a different matter. Being the simpleminded man that I am, it is very hard for me to keep up with all of this nonsense. I mean, after all, how do you know what is true if it changes all the time? I think if it is true, it is always true. That only beguiles my age. If truth is as slippery as some people are indicating, how do I know what is true today? It does not matter what was true yesterday. That was yesterday. Today is a new day and henceforth, what was true yesterday is not true today. To make matters even more confusing, what is true today will not be true tomorrow. I believe the reason I am getting bald is that I am scratching my head too much lately. I cannot seem to make heads or tails out of all the nonsense transpiring today as truth. How do people keep up and Thou pollest too much, methinks O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder know what is really true? If I plan to live quite a few more years, I am going to have to get a handle on this very thing. I am not quite sure where to go. Something has to be done so that I can figure out day by day what is really true. I shared my dilemma with my better half and as is usually the situation, she came up with a brilliant answer. Please, do not let her know I said that. She might get a big head and we cannot afford to buy a whole new set of hats. She simply said, Why dont you do what the politicians do? I did not quite know what she was getting at, so I inquired further. Silly, her pet name for Yours Truly, the politicians always take a poll before they decide on anything. It dawned on me like a morning in June. Of course. Whenever a politician wants to know what truth is flying on any given day, he reverts to taking a poll. Out of that poll, he can know what the truth is for that day. Amazing. I need to learn some lessons from todays politician. The first thing I need to understand from a politicians point of view is, What I am saying at the time is not necessarily what I mean. This is convenient and frees me up to say things I normally might put a check on. The checks in the mail and I now am free to say whatever is on my mind at the moment. The first thing I need to do is find out what is on the mind of the people I am talking to. Whatever is on their mind is exactly what is on my mind. This has such a freeing aspect to it. Another thing from a politicians viewpoint is, What I said yesterday doesnt count today. This also is from the polling machine. The amazing thing about most people is they do not remember what was said yesterday. A very poor politician reminds people of what they said yesterday. A politician needs to tell them what he is saying today. Because todays truth is todays truth. No need to worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will be reflected by tomorrows polling. This is very important because it reduces the necessity to use any sort of memory whatsoever. Because what I said yesterday does not really matter today. I do not have to remember what I said yesterday. If I want to know what I said yesterday, I need only take another poll today and that settles the matter. Perhaps the most important view from a politician is, Tomorrow may never come. I do not have to worry that what I am saying today will catch up with me tomorrow, for the simple reason tomorrow may never come. If it does come, so what. I will take a poll tomorrow to find out what I need to say tomorrow. I think there is something to this polling mechanism. I do not have to worry about anything; all I need to do is just take another poll. I know it may get a little confusing, but I clear up that confusion by taking another poll. It is always the last poll that really counts. Thankfully, when it comes to God, truth does not change from one day to the next. What is true today was true yesterday and will be true tomorrow. You can count on that. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8 KJV). I can always count on God being true to His Word because God never changes. Rev. James L.

His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com T hanksgiving is next Thursday, a day when we all should be thankful for our life, blessings, and liberty in the USA. We already know what the day will be like. Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the oven to an afternoon high near 190F. The kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a severe squall or cold shoulder. During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches on plates. Mashed potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry sauce creates slippery spots on the other. Weight watch and indigestion warnings have been issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness around the beltway. During the evening, the turkey will diminish and taper off to leftovers, dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator. Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to eat sandwiches will be established. Flurries of leftovers can be expected both days with a 50 percent chance of scattered soup late in the day. We expect a warming trend where soup develops. By early next week, eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will be the bone. A real turkeyA blonde was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but couldnt find one big enough for her family. She asked the stock boy, Do these turkeys get any bigger? The stock boy answered, No maam theyre dead. Once she got the turkey home she called the newspapers food editor for help. She asked, I bought a nine-pound turkey. Could you tell me how long to cook it in my new microwave? Just a minute, the food editor said, as he turned to check his reference book. Oh, thank you, she said, Youve been a big help. Good-bye! This blonde also wanted to make sweet potatoes, which were one of her husbands favorites. She confided in a neighbor and asked, Ive finally been able to make them sweet, she said, but how do you make them orange? Another turkeyA new young bride called her mother in tears. She sobbed, Robert doesnt appreciate what I do for him. Now, now, her mother comforted, I am sure it was all just a misunderstanding. No, mother, the young woman lamented. I bought a frozen turkey loaf and he yelled at me about the price. Well, that is being miserly, the mother agreed, Those turkey rolls are only a few dollars. No, mother it wasnt the price of the turkey roll, it was the airplane ticket. Airplane ticket? What did you need an airplane ticket for? Well mother, when I went to fix it, I looked at the directions on the back and it said, Prepare from a frozen state, so I flew to Alaska. Drum sticksShe baked the turkey for almost five days because the instructions said 1 hour per pound and she weighed 108. For Thanksgiving the Poultry Raisers of America are sending the biggest turkey in the country to the White House. The Republicans claim hes already there. When I realized I was addicted to Thanksgiving leftovers, I decided to quit cold turkey. When the guest speaker was introduced after a Thanksgiving dinner the emcee said, We have just enjoyed a turkey stuffed with sage. It is now my pleasure to introduce a sage stuffed with turkey.Trophy turkeyLittle Bruno was sitting in his grandmothers kitchen, watching her prepare the Thanksgiving meal. What are you doing? Bruno asked. Oh, Im just stuffing the turkey, his grandmother replied. Thats cool! Bruno said. Are you going to hang it next to the deer? Political killingI know a farmer who used a foolproof way of getting his turkeys ready for Thanksgiving. For the last month all he did was show the turkeys the TV presidential political debates, the candidates commercials, and the evening political news. Now they are ready to go quietly. Some have even volunteered. Good hunting This year I had my chance to do the traditional thing of shooting my own turkey for Thanksgiving. You should have seen the people scatter in the meat department. Oak Run residents Dick and Jane Frank wish you a happy thanksgiving. Here are some turkeys for Thanksgiving on Pun Alley P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank Sumter Electric Cooperative (SECO) has announced that many of its member/customers will be surveyed by telephone this month and in early December. SECO Director of Corporate Communications, Barry Bowman, said that the electric cooperative does this annual survey to get opinions on how co-op members feel their utility is doing with regard to such things as service reliability and customer service. Bowman said, Generally speaking, SECO gets very high marks from the members during these surveys. In fact, a series of questions in the survey allows our coop to be ranked against all other types of electric utilities in the nation on the American Consumer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). Since beginning to use the ACSI to make this comparison, SECOs scores from member/customers on satisfaction are amongst the highest of any utility in the country. We are a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative. That means our focus is on delivering the most reliable, lowest cost electricity possible and best customer service we can to our members. We hope the members will take the time to answer the survey being conducted by NRECA Market Research Services on our behalf, he said. Bowman concluded by noting that the survey process is one of the numerous ways that SECO stays in close touch with its overall membership. He stated that, in a co-op, member thoughts and opinions are important and help guide co-op operations. Sumter Electric to survey customers John M.

E The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: Is it true that cutting and burning trees adds more global warming pollution to the atmosphere than all the cars and trucks in the world combined? -Mitchell Vale, Houston, TX By most accounts, deforestation in tropical rainforests adds more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere than the sum total of cars and trucks on the worlds roads. According to the World Carfree Network (WCN), cars and trucks account for about 14 percent of global carbon emissions, while most analysts attribute upwards of 15 percent to deforestation. The reason that logging is so bad for the climate is that when trees are felled they release the carbon they are storing into the atmosphere, where it mingles with greenhouse gases from other sources and contributes to global warming accordingly. The upshot is that we should be doing as much to prevent deforestation as we are to increase fuel efficiency and reduce automobile usage. According to the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), a leading green group, 32 million acres of tropical rainforest were cut down each year between 2000 and 2009and the pace of deforestation is only increasing. Unless we change the present system that rewards forest destruction, forest clearing will put another 200 billion tons of carbon into the atmosphere in coming decades says EDF. Any realistic plan to reduce global warming pollution sufficientlyand in timeto avoid dangerous consequences must rely in part on preserving tropical forests, reports EDF. But its hard to convince the poor residents of the Amazon basin and other tropical regions of the world to stop cutting down trees when the forests are still worth more dead than alive. Conservation costs money, while profits from timber, charcoal, pasture and cropland drive people to cut down forests, adds EDF. Exacerbating global warming isnt the only negative impact of tropical deforestation. It also wipes out biodiversity: More than half of the worlds plant and animal species live in tropical rainforests. One way some tropical countries are reducing deforestation is through participation in the United Nations Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) program. REDD essentially works to establish incentives for the people who care for the forest to manage it sustainably while still being able to benefit economically. Examples include using less land (and therefore cutting fewer trees) for activities such as coffee growing and meat and milk production. Participating nations can then accrue and sell carbon pollution credits when they can prove they have lowered deforestation below a baseline. The REDD program has channeled over $117 million in direct financial aid and educational support into national deforestation reduction efforts in 44 developing countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America since its 2008 inception. Brazil is among the countries embracing REDD among other efforts to reduce carbon emissions. Thanks to the program, Brazil has slowed deforestation within its borders by 40 percent since 2008 and is on track to achieve an 80 percent reduction by 2020. Environmentalists are optimistic that the initial success of REDD in Brazil bodes well for reducing deforestation in other parts of the tropics as well.

Which if any well known manufacturers are embracing it? -Karin Romano, Bristol, CT Bluesign is an emerging standard for environmental health and safety in the manufacturing of textiles. The Switzerland-based organization, officially known as Bluesign Technologies AG, provides independent auditing of textile mills, examining manufacturing processes from raw materials and energy inputs to water and air emissions outputs. Each component is assessed based on its ecotoxicological impact. Bluesign ranks its audit findings in order of concern, and suggests ways to reduce consumption while recommending alternatives to harmful chemicals or processes where applicable. Textile mills that commit to verifiably adopting Bluesigns recommendations can become certified System Partners and attract business from a wide range of brands and retailers around the world looking for greener vendors. Eco-aware consumers can feel confident purchasing clothing items with the Bluesign label that they are buying the most environmentally friendly, socially conscious version of the jacket, shirt, sweater, pants, hat or gloves in question. Given the push for greener products of every kind, Bluesign has gained serious traction in the last few years among some of the leading brands in the outdoor clothing and gear business. Patagonia was Bluesigns first brand member and has been supportive of the program since its inception in 2000. While only 16 percent of the products in its 2012 line contain Bluesign-approved fabrics, the company has set a goal with its suppliers to have all Patagonia fabrics adhere to the standard by 2015. The North Face is a newer partner for Bluesign, but no less committed: The company has been going gangbusters for the standard since 2010, and offers several clothing items made with at least 90 percent Bluesign-approved fabrics. Over the two years it has been converting its supply chain over to Bluesign-approved vendors, The North Face has saved 85 Olympic swimming pools worth of water, 38 tanker trucks worth of chemicals, and carbon emissions similar to taking some 1,100 cars off the road for a year. Another leading outdoor clothing manufacturer embracing Bluesign is Norways Helly Hansen. In its 2012 line, more than 100 of Helly Hansens 500 products contain fabrics that meet the Bluesign standard; that number is expected to increase by 50 percent in 2013. Helly Hansen would go fully Bluesign except that some of its specialty products that need to be flame retardant do not meet the standard. The company is optimistic, however, that textile makers can solve that problemand then it can offer a 100 percent Bluesign-approved product line. Some of the other big outdoor brands that have teamed up with Bluesign include REI and Canadas Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC). Whether Bluesign catches on more widely in this dog-eat-dog, economically stressed business climate remains to be seen. Earning Bluesign approval costs mills and suppliers time and money, reports MEC. They have to be convinced theyll get a return on their investment in the form of increased demand for their products from manufacturers like MEC and ultimately from consumers.

The air is clear and comfortable and the nights are cool. Yes, it is fall in Florida and not a Thanksgiving decoration can be found. Oh, there are lots of Christmas things out with Santas practically grabbing your arm and magically saying, buy me, buy anything, just get Christmas going! But before this shopping frenzy gets under way, in true Jewish fashion, Id like remind us all of the importance of Thanksgiving. First of all, no matter what religion you follow, it is good to give thanks unto the Lord. The Psalmists words still ring true. We can thank the Creator for our lives, health, family, the flowering hibiscus bush, anything we wish. And when we all think about it, it is those priceless things that are the most valuable, the love of our family and friends, the smile on our grandchildrens faces, and the pride we have in our children. We need Thanksgiving to remember these things, a day set aside so that we do not take these things for granted. Thanksgiving gives us a perfect opportunity for sharing. While many of us regularly give to a local food bank, this holiday allows us to do more, enabling others to share in a special meal that might not be available on a regular basis. The simple act of sharing sensitizes us to the need of others. In our congregation, at the Shabbat service, we bless the challah, Sabbath bread, and then offer pieces to each other. A rabbi friend of mine says: feed another and you feed the world. This simple caring act, teaches us all that to repair our fractured world, we need to start with one person and watch how the kindness grows. In our American tradition, Thanksgiving recalls the early history of this country. It saddens me when this aspect of the holiday gets ignored. The people of the Mayflower came to this country to worship in their own particular way. Others followed in the path blazed by the Pilgrims. And when in 1654, a group of Jews landed in Why we still need Thanksgiving J UDI S JOURNAL J S Judi Siegal what is now New York City, they too, were looking for a religious haven. And while there were struggles along the way, the American Experience embraced religious freedom leading to the myriad faiths that exist today in this country. We need only to look at the community interfaith Thanksgiving celebrations to see that at least one time a year we all can get together as a human community and say thanks. Thanksgiving affords us the time to spend with family and friends. There is nothing like sharing a meal to bring a family together. Whether it is moms apple pie, Aunt Sarahs green bean casserole or Sandys fabulous stuffing, we all look forward to this special meal with its seasonal treats. While many of us are so busy with work and other responsibilities, it is good to have a day to sit around the table, discuss politics, and give kudos to the cook. And while the men are watching football, the women are cleaning up and the teens are texting their friends, there is still that closeness that only a holiday can bring. There is one more reason we still need Thanksgiving and it is purely gastronomical. Thanksgiving is a perfect excuse for pumpkin pie. May we all have a wonderful holiday filled with love and sharing bringing us closer to a world at peace. Happy Thanksgiving!

THE RACKETEER By John Grisham Hes back!the John Grisham who enthralled us with The Firm and The Client and The Pelican Brief. And this wayward fan couldnt be happier. After disappointing us with some recent lackluster novels, Grisham is once again his vintage self in The Racketeer, a thriller peppered with intrigue, deceit, and revenge. The book begins with the murder of a federal judge at the lakeside vacation home he built himself. Mal Bannister, an unfairly incarcerated lawyer on racketeering charges for picking the wrong client to represent, reflects on the news: Given the importance of what they do and the controversies that surround them and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. The plot is simple until its not. Bannister has spent five years in jail and has another five ahead of him. He tells us: I am a lawyer, and I am in prison. Its a long story. Im fortythree years old and halfway through a ten-year sentence handed down by a weak and sanctimonious federal judge in Washington, D.C. All of my appeals have run their course, and there is no procedure, mechanism, obscure statute, technicality, or Hail Mary left in my depleted arsenal. But he has an ace up his sleeve. He knows who the judges killer is and will trade that information to the FBI for his freedom. Of course, had it been that simple wed have a very short novel. The real fun begins twothirds of the way through the book when the author presents us with a complicated twist. Here, Bannister a likeable central character we naturally root for, begins dazzling us with his endruns around the powersthat-be. Caveat: Dont try to skim this one. It demands close attention. There may be a few too many deus ex machina moments requiring suspension of disbelief but thats a small matter. This is an actionpacked, pageturning, and completely satisfying read with plenty of legal tidbits like rule 35 thrown in for good measure.

Southern States Club holiday dinner danceIts the most wonderful time of the year to join your friends in the Southern States Club for the holiday dinner dance on Dec. 13, at 6 p.m. at Palm Grove.Friday, November 16, 2012 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, November 16, 2012 www.smcitizen.com F lags unfurled to the bright sun; a color guard marching in military precision; a highly decorated Air Force officer giving the keynote address and survivors recognized with flowers; all were a part of the Cherrywood Veterans Day Observance on Sunday, Nov. 11. More than 70 people stood at attention and spontaneously began singing as the strains of our National Anthem sounded. Veterans Club President Bill Mahar then introduced the guest speaker, Col. Thomas Currie Jr. Bill and his wife Ida had been Toms sponsor during his time at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado. As the colonel stepped up to the microphone and began speaking the sunlight caught his uniform full of the awards and the medals he has received during his more than 20 years of service. It was apparent to all that he knew first-hand the perils of combat and the sacrifices of service. In his brief but moving address, he spoke of the cost of freedom. He thanked those who have served in all of our wars from World War II through and including the current war on terror. When he was finishing his talk in which he mentioned the Korean War veterans; Vietnam veterans and even the Cold War veterans, he read a poem titled, Freedom isnt Free. Loud applause and warm handshakes greeted him when he was done. A salute to the services followed with all of the service songs being played. Each service flag was trooped as the melodies sounded. In addition to the Army; Marines; Navy; Air Force and Coast Guard, for the first time, the Merchant Marine was recognized. The Veterans Club lost five of its members this past year. In memory of those who passed away, Rich and Ruth Hurley presented a rose to each widow. The crowd was hushed in quiet respect as each recipient came forward and took the red bloom. A moment of silence was broken only by the quiet tears of those who had lost loved ones. As if on cue, snapping to attention, the veterans brought their hands up in a sharp and smart salute. Then the mournful strains of Taps began echoing across the hushed crowd. When the last note faded in the distance, the Color Guard came to life. In a precision move, the 10-member group began retiring the colors. In the process, they passed in review before the dignitaries and visitors assembled in front of the clubhouse. The service was concluded. Following the ceremony, everyone went inside the clubhouse to meet with and congratulate Col. Currie and his family. Together we all enjoyed a good old American style picnic of hot dogs and hamburgers; potato salad and beans. Desserts were baked by our ladies and our volunteers grilled and prepared all the food. A small army of volunteers made this Veterans Day a smashing success and to name them all would take the better part of this newspaper. Suffice it to say that without all of our dedicated people, we would not have had a Veterans Day celebration. We thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts.

See you on that Wednesday for Trivia Night!Singles Dinner All of our singles are invited every Sunday to enjoy dinner at one of our local restaurants. Everyone meets in the parking lot of the clubhouse at 4 p.m. to car pool over to enjoy a relaxing meal and great company. On the 18th the venue will by Sammy Saint Johns restaurant. (May I recommend the fried shrimp and green beans?) This will be the last evening for November as the next Sunday is Thanksgiving. Dont miss out on this opportunity to make new friends and catch up with old friends over a delicious meal. Angel TreeTheres a Christmas tree in the clubhouse with cards that have the names of needy children. We would ask you to take one of these cards and make it a special Christmas for one of these youngsters. You have until Dec. 12 to purchase some things that will brighten their holidays and let them know that Santa cares. Dont let any of our kids go without getting something under their tree on Christmas Day.Trim-a-tree PartyThe tradition lives on as all the residents of Cherrywood come to the clubhouse on Sunday, Dec. 2, from 6 until approximately 9 p.m. Each resident has an ornament that they brought in on their first Christmas at Cherrywood. The decoration has the name of each resident and date that they moved in. Then, each year, the decorations are pulled out and hung on our Christmas tree. This is a great tradition when everyone gathers to share the refreshments and libations theyve brought and enjoy the Christmas spirit with each other. For those of you who are new to our community bring a bulb with your name and the date you moved in and then join this joyous tradition. As a special treat, our own Songbirds will once again entertain everyone and invite everyone to join in as they sing songs of the season. Dont miss out on one of the best of our holiday traditions. Accordion ClubOn Nov. 28, the Cherrywood Accordion Club will gather again at the clubhouse for another night of fun and musical entertainment. Bring your snacks and beverages and some friends and be there at 5:30 p.m. when professionals; amateurs and beginners all join in playing not only their accordions but an array of musical instruments. Youll be amazed and astounded at the amount of talent that these musicians bring to the large following of guests that flock to this monthly Jam Session. No one is disappointed by the performers who play a wide variety of tunes from polkas to big band; from pop to blues and everything in between. The evening is free and is directed by our own Dick Richards. If youve never been to an Accordion Club event, youve missed a special treat so dont miss this one. If you play an instrument, youre welcome to bring it of course and join in but if you just appreciate good music, come early to get a good seat and then just sit back and enjoy.Biloxi getawayHow about a four-day, three-night trip filled with excitement and gaming pleasure at one of Biloxis best casinos?

Start the New Year off right enjoying the shows; feasting on the delicious meals; gaming in the large clean casinos and being with friends. Oh, and did I mention that you do not have to be a Cherrywood resident to enjoy this trip? NASCAR Special Next Sunday, Nov. 18, racing fans will gather at the clubhouse beginning at 1 p.m. to watch NASCAR on the big screen TV. The race begins at 2 p.m. but youll want to get there early to get good seats. This event is free to all residents and their friends and you are encouraged to bring food; snacks and your favorite beverages to enhance your viewing pleasure. NASCAR is the most popular spectator sport in the country so we expect a large turn out for this first time event. If all of our racing enthusiasts show up, this will become a regular highlight of the season for our residents. Karaoke Night What a time everyone had at Karaoke Night this past Friday. It was the first such event for Cherrywood and the 50 or more attendees enjoyed every minute of it. This will undoubtedly become a regular part of the Cherrywood social scene in the months and years to come. Along with the singing of some very talented residents (and some not so much) there was also line dancing; slow dancing; fast dancing and sing-along. Bill Lavertue and Rich Becotte teamed up to make the clubhouse ring with a wide variety of songs that brought back old memories and created new ones for all who were there. Its amazing the amount of talent that our residents have and are willing to share. Not everyone was a star but all were received with applause; affection and good natured kidding. One thing for sure, everyone who got up to sing had courage and had a good time too.

Everyone is invited and urged to come out and see what your Cherrywood veterans are doing. Over the past few weeks, our organization has been especially blessed by the benevolence of an anonymous donor. This gentleman has given money specifically designated to our service men and women who are overseas and to the Ritz House of Ocala. In addition, he purchased refrigerators for the residents of Ritz House making their lives much more comfortable. We are extremely grateful for this individuals commitment to veterans and for his extraordinary support to us.

BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.com News from a very busy OTOW club, a relatively new club, and exciting upcoming entertainment mark this weeks OTOW Happenings. Lions Club Each year our nation honors its veterans, and the OTOW Lions Club, by tradition, provides the memorial event within On Top of the World to honor those who have served our nation so valiantly. This year was no exception, and on Nov. 11, at 2 p.m., the Veterans Day Ceremony was held at the Arbor Club. Lion Richard Spahn welcomed guests and attendees, and Chaplain Robert Benson gave both the invocation and the benediction. Lion President Ralph Mills was introduced, and he, in turn, introduced honored guests and fellow Lions. Lion Richard Spahn read a beautiful Veterans Day Remembrance recitation. The Colors were presented by the West Port High School R.O.R.C., followed by the Pledge of Allegiance, led by Lion Ralph Mills, and the singing of the National Anthem. The OTOW Concert Chorus then sang a medley of patriotic songs. The theme songs of each branch of service were played, and veterans in attendance stood as the song of their particular branch was played. Special recognition was given to veterans of World War II and Korea present as honored guests. Mr. Kenneth Colen presented the Memorial Wreath, and the audience bowed their heads as Taps was played. Following the retirement of the colors, three of the Lions Club members lead the audience in the singing of God Bless America, which was followed by the benediction. The Club wishes to express appreciation to Mr. Kenneth Colen, the sound crew, West Port High School Honor Guard, Chaplain Robert Benson, and the OTOW Concert Chorus for making this a successful event in honoring our nations veterans. The OTOW Club is wellknown for its continued offering of diabetes screenings. Members who wish to become screeners must first undergo training for certification, and those already trained must periodically go through a recertification training program. On October 27, 2012, club members, in addition to other Lions Club members in Ocala, attended the training program, a full day happening (9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.). New club member Charlie Hassett earned initial certification, and Carol DeYoung, Steve Snowman, and Marty Schley were re-certified. Club members wish to thank everyone who participated in this event to benefit precious children in need. As most of you recall, each year the Lions Club puts on a very popular annual fashion show. Another fashion show is planned, but with a unique twist! The models will be wearing fashions that are made of recyclable materials! The OTOW Lions Club first recycled trashy fashion show is scheduled for April 12, 2013. Club members will not be the models; instead, members of the communitys other clubs (and not just OTOW clubs) and organizations will create and model their own trashy outfits and will be competing against each other for one of three cash prizes: $1,000, $500, and $300. The money will be donated to the charity of the winners choice. Details in regards to what materials may be used in these trashy outfits, submission procedures, etc. should be available to you by mid-December. Does YOUR club or organization have what it takes to win this exciting contest? Look for further information in this newspaper and in the weekly South Marion Citizens column, OTOW Happenings. You may also contact PDG Lion Estelle Clark at pdgestelle@yahoo.com (352-861-7358) or me at ejh2025@gmail.com at any time. The Democrat Party ClubThe relatively new On Top of the World Democratic Club held a very successful on Thursday, Oct. 25. J. R. Gaillot, the Democratic candidate for Congress, and Jessica Hadley, the Democratic candidate for County Commissioner, addressed the Club, expressing their plans to serve the people if elected. The Club meets on the fourth Thursday of every month at 6 p.m. in Rooms E & F of the Arbor Conference Center. However, because of the Thanksgiving Holiday, the club will meet at the same time and location on Nov. 29. The topic for discussion will focus on the Affordable Health Care Act. For more information, visit On Top of the World Democratic Club on Facebook or phone 352 509-4942. The club would like to send out a special Thank you to Nancy Archer for her contribution of flag bunting for our Veterans Day celebration. Songbirds PianistOur vocal group, the Songbirds, is still in need of a pianist. Their first engagement at the clubhouse is for our Christmas Tree Trimming Party so its approaching fast. If you can play the piano and have some time to share your talent and expertise with an experienced group of singers then contact director Linda Sisto at 509-7245. Youll not only meet and work with some very special people; youll travel around locally to various venues making the day a little brighter for some inneed persons. Youll have fun too because Linda and our singers, along with having a good ear, also have a good sense of humor. Oil Painting ClassHave you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to paint a picture and have someone else actually recognize what it is? Have you ever tried painting as an outlet of your creative skills? Have you ever wanted to help a child at Christmas? Well if you answered yes to any of these questions, or if you have any other motivation for wanting to learn how to paint, we have an excellent opportunity for you. On Nov. 30, the very talented and accomplished teacher, Debbie Blackburn, is holding a class for all aspiring artists in our clubhouse. Not only will you receive Debbies expertise but you will also be given an 8x10 canvas, paints and brushes. All you will need to bring with you is some paper towels.

Classes are limited in size so call Geri as soon as you can to make your reservation for this professional instruction. Let the hidden artist in you come out with this special opportunity.Upcoming Events As many of you know, the Mayan Calendar runs out on Dec. 21 of this year. Some people have interpreted this to mean the end of the world will be on that date or as they have come to term it, The end of time. Well, Cherrywood is planning to have an End of Time party on the 21st to celebrate this event in style. The details are just now being worked out so youll have to watch next weeks Citizen for the times and any cost that might be involved. It promises to be a party like no other so reserve that date in your non-Mayan calendar. Also, New Years Eve is coming. Thats the annual blow out get together for all of the Cherrywood Community. There will be music; food; champagne and party favors for all who attend. Tickets are just $10 per person so make plans to ring in the New Year with friends and neighbors in our beautifully decorated clubhouse. What a great way to welcome in 2013. Note, just in case the Mayans are right, disregard plans for the New Years Eve party.Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature a special person or couple who have an interesting past; a promising future; or who have made a significant contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. This week we feature the newest member of our maintenance crew, Justin Sanford. The youngest of three boys, Justin has two older brothers; Jeremy and Troy. His mom, Joy and his father, David, are both school teachers so at least one of his parents were teaching at every school that Justin attended from kindergarten through high school. When asked how that worked for him he smiled and said, It was interesting, adding that, they were pretty cool about it. It was obvious that, unlike it would be for many of us, having a parent around all the time was not too traumatic on the young man. Throughout his high school years at Tavares High School, Justin was very active in sports playing varsity football; soccer and running cross country. Soccer was his favorite sport and this athletic ability would serve him well in his future. While being involved in these many sports he joined the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. His faith would also play a major role in his life. Just under six months after his graduation from Tavares High School, Justin enlisted in the United States Marines. Like many of his fellow Marines, his first stop was Parris Island, South Carolina, for basic training. Following that, he was stationed at Camp Johnson, North Carolina, for training in vehicle mechanics. With his basic and advanced individual training complete, Justin was assigned to Camp Pendleton, California, in the 17th Combat Logistics Regiment. He was drafted for the All Marine Soccer Team at Pendleton where he was able to utilize his high school sports ability against the Navy and other teams. From there he began a long and arduous 14-month service tour at Al Taqaddum, Western Iraq. More than driving and working on motor vehicles, Justin served on convoy duty; combat patrols; worked on Marine infantry training as part of the transition team and was a part of the personal protection team for dignitaries visiting in country. Part of his duties was training the Iraqis to defend themselves and their own country against insurgents and outside guerillas. This assignment was extremely hazardous and Justin admits that there was a lack of trust among the allies and the Iraqi soldiers. Often before a combat patrol we would see the Iraqis on their cell phones and wed always wonder if they were tipping off the enemy as to our plans. After being awarded the National Defense Service Medal; Iraq Campaign Medal; Iraq Combat Medal and Good Conduct Medal among other awards and citations, Justin returned to the United States. Three months later, he was discharged and on his way home to Florida. During one of his leaves, Justin went to Daytona Beach. It was there that met a young lady named Jessica who was visiting from Aiken, South Carolina. Love was born and grew. In spite of the hardships, the two kept their relationship vibrant, fun and enthusiastic. When Justin came home to Florida, Jessica joined him, leaving her family restaurant business in South Carolina. They have been together over four years and share the joy of their hearts, a daughter named Pelagia. When asked about the unusual name, Justin smiled and said Its a Greek name. Jessicas family is Greek. Pelagia is two and a half years old and runs the house as well as running around the house. Taking advantage of the G.I. Bill, Justin attended Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville where he received an associate of arts degree in business administration. He accomplished this while still serving in the Marine Corps Reserve in Orlando. Currently, he is studying physical therapy through the University of Phoenix. Jessica has not shied away from hard work or education either. She works at Dockside Daves in Leesburg and is enrolled in Rasmussen College to study being a paralegal. Both Jessica and Justin share a commitment to giving their darling daughter the best possible future. We want her to have a good home; good schools and to be happy. Justin told me. Moving from Leesburg to Ocala just one month ago, Justin and Jessica have been very busy. One of the things they have had to do is look for a new church. Strongly rooted in their faith, Justin and Jessica want to give their daughter a firm Christian foundation as well in a loving home environment. They are currently looking for a church that will fit their needs. For the past seven months Justin has been the junior member of the Cherrywood maintenance team doing all of the varied tasks that go into keeping our clubhouse and our grounds in top notch condition. This includes the upkeep of the pool and hot tub; maintaining the various tennis courts, Bocce courts and other sports activity venues; keeping the lighting working and making sure all of the outside facilities are kept up to standard.

Throughout his high school years at Tavares High School, Justin was very active in sports playing varsity football; soccer and running cross country. Soccer was his favorite sport and this athletic ability would serve him well in his future. While being involved in these many sports he joined the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. His faith would also play a major role in his life. Just under six months after his graduation from Tavares High School, Justin enlisted in the United States Marines. Like many of his fellow Marines, his first stop was Parris Island, South Carolina, for basic training. Following that, he was stationed at Camp Johnson, North Carolina, for training in vehicle mechanics. With his basic and advanced individual training complete, Justin was assigned to Camp Pendleton, California, in the 17th Combat Logistics Regiment. He was drafted for the All Marine Soccer Team at Pendleton where he was able to utilize his high school sports ability against the Navy and other teams. From there he began a long and arduous 14-month service tour at Al Taqaddum, Western Iraq. More than driving and working on motor vehicles, Justin served on convoy duty; combat patrols; worked on Marine infantry training as part of the transition team and was a part of the personal protection team for dignitaries visiting in country. Part of his duties was training the Iraqis to defend themselves and their own country against insurgents and outside guerillas. This assignment was extremely hazardous and Justin admits that there was a lack of trust among the allies and the Iraqi soldiers. Often before a combat patrol we would see the Iraqis on their cell phones and wed always wonder if they were tipping off the enemy as to our plans. After being awarded the National Defense Service Medal; Iraq Campaign Medal; Iraq Combat Medal and Good Conduct Medal among other awards and citations, Justin returned to the United States. Three months later, he was discharged and on his way home to Florida. During one of his leaves, Justin went to Daytona Beach. It was there that met a young lady named Jessica who was visiting from Aiken, South Carolina. Love was born and grew. In spite of the hardships, the two kept their relationship vibrant, fun and enthusiastic. When Justin came home to Florida, Jessica joined him, leaving her family restaurant business in South Carolina. They have been together over four years and share the joy of their hearts, a daughter named Pelagia. When asked about the unusual name, Justin smiled and said Its a Greek name. Jessicas family is Greek. Pelagia is two and a half years old and runs the house as well as running around the house. Taking advantage of the G.I. Bill, Justin attended Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville where he received an associate of arts degree in business administration. He accomplished this while still serving in the Marine Corps Reserve in Orlando. Currently, he is studying physical therapy through the University of Phoenix. Jessica has not shied away from hard work or education either. She works at Dockside Daves in Leesburg and is enrolled in Rasmussen College to study being a paralegal. Both Jessica and Justin share a commitment to giving their darling daughter the best possible future. We want her to have a good home; good schools and to be happy. Justin told me. Moving from Leesburg to Ocala just one month ago, Justin and Jessica have been very busy. One of the things they have had to do is look for a new church. Strongly rooted in their faith, Justin and Jessica want to give their daughter a firm Christian foundation as well in a loving home environment. They are currently looking for a church that will fit their needs. For the past seven months Justin has been the junior member of the Cherrywood maintenance team doing all of the varied tasks that go into keeping our clubhouse and our grounds in top notch condition. This includes the upkeep of the pool and hot tub; maintaining the various tennis courts, Bocce courts and other sports activity venues; keeping the lighting working and making sure all of the outside facilities are kept up to standard.

See you on that Wednesday for Trivia Night!Singles Dinner All of our singles are invited every Sunday to enjoy dinner at one of our local restaurants. Everyone meets in the parking lot of the clubhouse at 4 p.m. to car pool over to enjoy a relaxing meal and great company. On the 18th the venue will by Sammy Saint Johns restaurant. (May I recommend the fried shrimp and green beans?) This will be the last evening for November as the next Sunday is Thanksgiving. Dont miss out on this opportunity to make new friends and catch up with old friends over a delicious meal. Angel TreeTheres a Christmas tree in the clubhouse with cards that have the names of needy children. We would ask you to take one of these cards and make it a special Christmas for one of these youngsters. You have until Dec. 12 to purchase some things that will brighten their holidays and let them know that Santa cares. Dont let any of our kids go without getting something under their tree on Christmas Day.Trim-a-tree PartyThe tradition lives on as all the residents of Cherrywood come to the clubhouse on Sunday, Dec. 2, from 6 until approximately 9 p.m. Each resident has an ornament that they brought in on their first Christmas at Cherrywood. The decoration has the name of each resident and date that they moved in. Then, each year, the decorations are pulled out and hung on our Christmas tree. This is a great tradition when everyone gathers to share the refreshments and libations theyve brought and enjoy the Christmas spirit with each other. For those of you who are new to our community bring a bulb with your name and the date you moved in and then join this joyous tradition. As a special treat, our own Songbirds will once again entertain everyone and invite everyone to join in as they sing songs of the season. Dont miss out on one of the best of our holiday traditions. Accordion ClubOn Nov. 28, the Cherrywood Accordion Club will gather again at the clubhouse for another night of fun and musical entertainment. Bring your snacks and beverages and some friends and be there at 5:30 p.m. when professionals; amateurs and beginners all join in playing not only their accordions but an array of musical instruments. Youll be amazed and astounded at the amount of talent that these musicians bring to the large following of guests that flock to this monthly Jam Session. No one is disappointed by the performers who play a wide variety of tunes from polkas to big band; from pop to blues and everything in between. The evening is free and is directed by our own Dick Richards. If youve never been to an Accordion Club event, youve missed a special treat so dont miss this one. If you play an instrument, youre welcome to bring it of course and join in but if you just appreciate good music, come early to get a good seat and then just sit back and enjoy.Biloxi getawayHow about a four-day, three-night trip filled with excitement and gaming pleasure at one of Biloxis best casinos? Well, Jan. 1316 Cherrywood is offering an excursion to the IP Casino Resort & Spa.

As an added bonus, you will visit two other casinos; the Hard Rock and Palace. You will get $15 in free slot play from each of those venues as well.

Start the New Year off right enjoying the shows; feasting on the delicious meals; gaming in the large clean casinos and being with friends. Oh, and did I mention that you do not have to be a Cherrywood resident to enjoy this trip? NASCAR Special Next Sunday, Nov. 18, racing fans will gather at the clubhouse beginning at 1 p.m. to watch NASCAR on the big screen TV. The race begins at 2 p.m. but youll want to get there early to get good seats. This event is free to all residents and their friends and you are encouraged to bring food; snacks and your favorite beverages to enhance your viewing pleasure. NASCAR is the most popular spectator sport in the country so we expect a large turn out for this first time event. If all of our racing enthusiasts show up, this will become a regular highlight of the season for our residents. Karaoke Night What a time everyone had at Karaoke Night this past Friday. It was the first such event for Cherrywood and the 50 or more attendees enjoyed every minute of it. This will undoubtedly become a regular part of the Cherrywood social scene in the months and years to come. Along with the singing of some very talented residents (and some not so much) there was also line dancing; slow dancing; fast dancing and sing-along. Bill Lavertue and Rich Becotte teamed up to make the clubhouse ring with a wide variety of songs that brought back old memories and created new ones for all who were there. Its amazing the amount of talent that our residents have and are willing to share. Not everyone was a star but all were received with applause; affection and good natured kidding. One thing for sure, everyone who got up to sing had courage and had a good time too. Watch your Citizen newspaper and Chirp for the next Karaoke Night and plan to come out for a funny and surprisingly good time. Cribbage PlayersOur Cherrywood Cribbage Club is still looking for new players to join them on Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. in the card room. Novice or accomplished player, everyone is welcome. Lessons will be given to those who are new to the game or who just want to learn to play so for a challenging and fun game try cribbage and for a good time with good people, come to the Cribbage Club. Veterans Club On Thursday, Dec. 6, the Veterans Club will hold its last meeting for the year at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse. Everyone is invited and urged to come out and see what your Cherrywood veterans are doing. Over the past few weeks, our organization has been especially blessed by the benevolence of an anonymous donor. This gentleman has given money specifically designated to our service men and women who are overseas and to the Ritz House of Ocala. In addition, he purchased refrigerators for the residents of Ritz House making their lives much more comfortable. We are extremely grateful for this individuals commitment to veterans and for his extraordinary support to us. At our meeting we will be discussing and voting on the disbursement of our other charitable funds as well as talking about next years events and activities. If you would like to see your Veterans Club at work, this is a great opportunity. Refreshments are served on the patio following the meeting so come out; share your thoughts and ideas and then socialize with friends and neighbors.

More than 70 people stood at attention and spontaneously began singing as the strains of our National Anthem sounded. Veterans Club President Bill Mahar then introduced the guest speaker, Col. Thomas Currie Jr. Bill and his wife Ida had been Toms sponsor during his time at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado. As the colonel stepped up to the microphone and began speaking the sunlight caught his uniform full of the awards and the medals he has received during his more than 20 years of service. It was apparent to all that he knew first-hand the perils of combat and the sacrifices of service. In his brief but moving address, he spoke of the cost of freedom. He thanked those who have served in all of our wars from World War II through and including the current war on terror. When he was finishing his talk in which he mentioned the Korean War veterans; Vietnam veterans and even the Cold War veterans, he read a poem titled, Freedom isnt Free. Loud applause and warm handshakes greeted him when he was done. A salute to the services followed with all of the service songs being played. Each service flag was trooped as the melodies sounded. In addition to the Army; Marines; Navy; Air Force and Coast Guard, for the first time, the Merchant Marine was recognized. The Veterans Club lost five of its members this past year. In memory of those who passed away, Rich and Ruth Hurley presented a rose to each widow. The crowd was hushed in quiet respect as each recipient came forward and took the red bloom. A moment of silence was broken only by the quiet tears of those who had lost loved ones. As if on cue, snapping to attention, the veterans brought their hands up in a sharp and smart salute. Then the mournful strains of Taps began echoing across the hushed crowd. When the last note faded in the distance, the Color Guard came to life. In a precision move, the 10-member group began retiring the colors. In the process, they passed in review before the dignitaries and visitors assembled in front of the clubhouse. The service was concluded. Following the ceremony, everyone went inside the clubhouse to meet with and congratulate Col. Currie and his family. Together we all enjoyed a good old American style picnic of hot dogs and hamburgers; potato salad and beans. Desserts were baked by our ladies and our volunteers grilled and prepared all the food. A small army of volunteers made this Veterans Day a smashing success and to name them all would take the better part of this newspaper. Suffice it to say that without all of our dedicated people, we would not have had a Veterans Day celebration. We thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts.

THE RACKETEER By John Grisham Hes back!the John Grisham who enthralled us with The Firm and The Client and The Pelican Brief. And this wayward fan couldnt be happier. After disappointing us with some recent lackluster novels, Grisham is once again his vintage self in The Racketeer, a thriller peppered with intrigue, deceit, and revenge. The book begins with the murder of a federal judge at the lakeside vacation home he built himself. Mal Bannister, an unfairly incarcerated lawyer on racketeering charges for picking the wrong client to represent, reflects on the news: Given the importance of what they do and the controversies that surround them and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. The plot is simple until its not. Bannister has spent five years in jail and has another five ahead of him. He tells us: I am a lawyer, and I am in prison. Its a long story. Im fortythree years old and halfway through a ten-year sentence handed down by a weak and sanctimonious federal judge in Washington, D.C. All of my appeals have run their course, and there is no procedure, mechanism, obscure statute, technicality, or Hail Mary left in my depleted arsenal. But he has an ace up his sleeve. He knows who the judges killer is and will trade that information to the FBI for his freedom. Of course, had it been that simple wed have a very short novel. The real fun begins twothirds of the way through the book when the author presents us with a complicated twist. Here, Bannister a likeable central character we naturally root for, begins dazzling us with his endruns around the powersthat-be. Caveat: Dont try to skim this one. It demands close attention. There may be a few too many deus ex machina moments requiring suspension of disbelief but thats a small matter. This is an actionpacked, pageturning, and completely satisfying read with plenty of legal tidbits like rule 35 thrown in for good measure.

E The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: Is it true that cutting and burning trees adds more global warming pollution to the atmosphere than all the cars and trucks in the world combined? -Mitchell Vale, Houston, TX By most accounts, deforestation in tropical rainforests adds more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere than the sum total of cars and trucks on the worlds roads. According to the World Carfree Network (WCN), cars and trucks account for about 14 percent of global carbon emissions, while most analysts attribute upwards of 15 percent to deforestation. The reason that logging is so bad for the climate is that when trees are felled they release the carbon they are storing into the atmosphere, where it mingles with greenhouse gases from other sources and contributes to global warming accordingly. The upshot is that we should be doing as much to prevent deforestation as we are to increase fuel efficiency and reduce automobile usage. According to the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), a leading green group, 32 million acres of tropical rainforest were cut down each year between 2000 and 2009and the pace of deforestation is only increasing. Unless we change the present system that rewards forest destruction, forest clearing will put another 200 billion tons of carbon into the atmosphere in coming decades says EDF. Any realistic plan to reduce global warming pollution sufficientlyand in timeto avoid dangerous consequences must rely in part on preserving tropical forests, reports EDF. But its hard to convince the poor residents of the Amazon basin and other tropical regions of the world to stop cutting down trees when the forests are still worth more dead than alive. Conservation costs money, while profits from timber, charcoal, pasture and cropland drive people to cut down forests, adds EDF. Exacerbating global warming isnt the only negative impact of tropical deforestation. It also wipes out biodiversity: More than half of the worlds plant and animal species live in tropical rainforests. One way some tropical countries are reducing deforestation is through participation in the United Nations Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) program. REDD essentially works to establish incentives for the people who care for the forest to manage it sustainably while still being able to benefit economically. Examples include using less land (and therefore cutting fewer trees) for activities such as coffee growing and meat and milk production. Participating nations can then accrue and sell carbon pollution credits when they can prove they have lowered deforestation below a baseline. The REDD program has channeled over $117 million in direct financial aid and educational support into national deforestation reduction efforts in 44 developing countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America since its 2008 inception. Brazil is among the countries embracing REDD among other efforts to reduce carbon emissions. Thanks to the program, Brazil has slowed deforestation within its borders by 40 percent since 2008 and is on track to achieve an 80 percent reduction by 2020. Environmentalists are optimistic that the initial success of REDD in Brazil bodes well for reducing deforestation in other parts of the tropics as well.

Which if any well known manufacturers are embracing it? -Karin Romano, Bristol, CT Bluesign is an emerging standard for environmental health and safety in the manufacturing of textiles. The Switzerland-based organization, officially known as Bluesign Technologies AG, provides independent auditing of textile mills, examining manufacturing processes from raw materials and energy inputs to water and air emissions outputs. Each component is assessed based on its ecotoxicological impact. Bluesign ranks its audit findings in order of concern, and suggests ways to reduce consumption while recommending alternatives to harmful chemicals or processes where applicable. Textile mills that commit to verifiably adopting Bluesigns recommendations can become certified System Partners and attract business from a wide range of brands and retailers around the world looking for greener vendors. Eco-aware consumers can feel confident purchasing clothing items with the Bluesign label that they are buying the most environmentally friendly, socially conscious version of the jacket, shirt, sweater, pants, hat or gloves in question. Given the push for greener products of every kind, Bluesign has gained serious traction in the last few years among some of the leading brands in the outdoor clothing and gear business. Patagonia was Bluesigns first brand member and has been supportive of the program since its inception in 2000. While only 16 percent of the products in its 2012 line contain Bluesign-approved fabrics, the company has set a goal with its suppliers to have all Patagonia fabrics adhere to the standard by 2015. The North Face is a newer partner for Bluesign, but no less committed: The company has been going gangbusters for the standard since 2010, and offers several clothing items made with at least 90 percent Bluesign-approved fabrics. Over the two years it has been converting its supply chain over to Bluesign-approved vendors, The North Face has saved 85 Olympic swimming pools worth of water, 38 tanker trucks worth of chemicals, and carbon emissions similar to taking some 1,100 cars off the road for a year. Another leading outdoor clothing manufacturer embracing Bluesign is Norways Helly Hansen. In its 2012 line, more than 100 of Helly Hansens 500 products contain fabrics that meet the Bluesign standard; that number is expected to increase by 50 percent in 2013. Helly Hansen would go fully Bluesign except that some of its specialty products that need to be flame retardant do not meet the standard. The company is optimistic, however, that textile makers can solve that problemand then it can offer a 100 percent Bluesign-approved product line. Some of the other big outdoor brands that have teamed up with Bluesign include REI and Canadas Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC). Whether Bluesign catches on more widely in this dog-eat-dog, economically stressed business climate remains to be seen. Earning Bluesign approval costs mills and suppliers time and money, reports MEC. They have to be convinced theyll get a return on their investment in the form of increased demand for their products from manufacturers like MEC and ultimately from consumers.

The air is clear and comfortable and the nights are cool. Yes, it is fall in Florida and not a Thanksgiving decoration can be found. Oh, there are lots of Christmas things out with Santas practically grabbing your arm and magically saying, buy me, buy anything, just get Christmas going! But before this shopping frenzy gets under way, in true Jewish fashion, Id like remind us all of the importance of Thanksgiving. First of all, no matter what religion you follow, it is good to give thanks unto the Lord. The Psalmists words still ring true. We can thank the Creator for our lives, health, family, the flowering hibiscus bush, anything we wish. And when we all think about it, it is those priceless things that are the most valuable, the love of our family and friends, the smile on our grandchildrens faces, and the pride we have in our children. We need Thanksgiving to remember these things, a day set aside so that we do not take these things for granted. Thanksgiving gives us a perfect opportunity for sharing. While many of us regularly give to a local food bank, this holiday allows us to do more, enabling others to share in a special meal that might not be available on a regular basis. The simple act of sharing sensitizes us to the need of others. In our congregation, at the Shabbat service, we bless the challah, Sabbath bread, and then offer pieces to each other. A rabbi friend of mine says: feed another and you feed the world. This simple caring act, teaches us all that to repair our fractured world, we need to start with one person and watch how the kindness grows. In our American tradition, Thanksgiving recalls the early history of this country. It saddens me when this aspect of the holiday gets ignored. The people of the Mayflower came to this country to worship in their own particular way. Others followed in the path blazed by the Pilgrims. And when in 1654, a group of Jews landed in Why we still need Thanksgiving J UDI S JOURNAL J S Judi Siegal what is now New York City, they too, were looking for a religious haven. And while there were struggles along the way, the American Experience embraced religious freedom leading to the myriad faiths that exist today in this country. We need only to look at the community interfaith Thanksgiving celebrations to see that at least one time a year we all can get together as a human community and say thanks. Thanksgiving affords us the time to spend with family and friends. There is nothing like sharing a meal to bring a family together. Whether it is moms apple pie, Aunt Sarahs green bean casserole or Sandys fabulous stuffing, we all look forward to this special meal with its seasonal treats. While many of us are so busy with work and other responsibilities, it is good to have a day to sit around the table, discuss politics, and give kudos to the cook. And while the men are watching football, the women are cleaning up and the teens are texting their friends, there is still that closeness that only a holiday can bring. There is one more reason we still need Thanksgiving and it is purely gastronomical. Thanksgiving is a perfect excuse for pumpkin pie. May we all have a wonderful holiday filled with love and sharing bringing us closer to a world at peace. Happy Thanksgiving!

Friday, November 16, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, November 16, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Those in charge are making Florida the laughing stock of America and yes even the world where third world countries are laughing at us for calling our elections legitimate. How many businesses from America or from anywhere in the world will want to locate companies in Florida if we cant even run a statewide election in an honest and forthright manor. After each election we are being told that unanticipated problems show up, such as too many voters, too many amendments, not enough voting locations, somebody unplugged the voting machines and no one could find an outlet (joke), those in Tallahassee believed that more of us could vote in fewer locations and in fewer voting days, shortened voting hours, history doesnt count and lastly, no one will remember these problems during the next election period. Governor Scott can be proud and still hold his head high when stating those dozen or so illegal voters were stopped in their tracks because of his valiant efforts. Jerry Segovis Ocala If I were the devilAll seniors should remember Paul Harvey, but if you do or dont, please go on line to http://stg.do/9LDc to hear his prediction made on ABC April 3, l965, it only lasts 3 minutes. Regardless of your political persuasion, you will be able to confirm what a wise man Harvey was and how his If I were the devil is playing out in America today. It is scary so Satan must truly be smiling! The very principles that made us the greatest country in the world are no longer the backbone of our nation. We are now a nation who is openly turning away from God and we will pay the price for doing so. We have made our bed, now we will have to live with it. We have invited God to remove his blessings from America and he may just do that Dont be shocked to see us hit with more natural disasters than ever before as God has no choice but to bring us back to our knees, one way or the other. Get familiar with biblical history, for as then, He is still in charge! I pray I am wrong regarding the above, join me in this prayer. Wayne Rackley Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 N ow that we have gotten past the recent elections, we can get back to life as normal. Of course, I am not sure what normal really means. One mans normal is another mans over the cliff. I am not quite sure I am normal and I fear bringing this query to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. My fear is that she will tell me the truth. You know what we Americans think about the truth. There was a time when truth was a pretty stable thing. There were certain things that were absolute truth and no ifs, ands or buts about it. Those were the good old days. Nowadays truth is not as clear as it once was. What was true in the day, is now altogether a different matter. Being the simpleminded man that I am, it is very hard for me to keep up with all of this nonsense. I mean, after all, how do you know what is true if it changes all the time? I think if it is true, it is always true. That only beguiles my age. If truth is as slippery as some people are indicating, how do I know what is true today? It does not matter what was true yesterday. That was yesterday. Today is a new day and henceforth, what was true yesterday is not true today. To make matters even more confusing, what is true today will not be true tomorrow. I believe the reason I am getting bald is that I am scratching my head too much lately. I cannot seem to make heads or tails out of all the nonsense transpiring today as truth. How do people keep up and Thou pollest too much, methinks O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L. Snyder know what is really true? If I plan to live quite a few more years, I am going to have to get a handle on this very thing. I am not quite sure where to go. Something has to be done so that I can figure out day by day what is really true. I shared my dilemma with my better half and as is usually the situation, she came up with a brilliant answer. Please, do not let her know I said that. She might get a big head and we cannot afford to buy a whole new set of hats. She simply said, Why dont you do what the politicians do? I did not quite know what she was getting at, so I inquired further. Silly, her pet name for Yours Truly, the politicians always take a poll before they decide on anything. It dawned on me like a morning in June. Of course. Whenever a politician wants to know what truth is flying on any given day, he reverts to taking a poll. Out of that poll, he can know what the truth is for that day. Amazing. I need to learn some lessons from todays politician. The first thing I need to understand from a politicians point of view is, What I am saying at the time is not necessarily what I mean. This is convenient and frees me up to say things I normally might put a check on. The checks in the mail and I now am free to say whatever is on my mind at the moment. The first thing I need to do is find out what is on the mind of the people I am talking to. Whatever is on their mind is exactly what is on my mind. This has such a freeing aspect to it. Another thing from a politicians viewpoint is, What I said yesterday doesnt count today. This also is from the polling machine. The amazing thing about most people is they do not remember what was said yesterday. A very poor politician reminds people of what they said yesterday. A politician needs to tell them what he is saying today. Because todays truth is todays truth. No need to worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will be reflected by tomorrows polling. This is very important because it reduces the necessity to use any sort of memory whatsoever. Because what I said yesterday does not really matter today. I do not have to remember what I said yesterday. If I want to know what I said yesterday, I need only take another poll today and that settles the matter. Perhaps the most important view from a politician is, Tomorrow may never come. I do not have to worry that what I am saying today will catch up with me tomorrow, for the simple reason tomorrow may never come. If it does come, so what. I will take a poll tomorrow to find out what I need to say tomorrow. I think there is something to this polling mechanism. I do not have to worry about anything; all I need to do is just take another poll. I know it may get a little confusing, but I clear up that confusion by taking another poll. It is always the last poll that really counts. Thankfully, when it comes to God, truth does not change from one day to the next. What is true today was true yesterday and will be true tomorrow. You can count on that. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8 KJV). I can always count on God being true to His Word because God never changes. Rev. James L.

His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com T hanksgiving is next Thursday, a day when we all should be thankful for our life, blessings, and liberty in the USA. We already know what the day will be like. Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the oven to an afternoon high near 190F. The kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a severe squall or cold shoulder. During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches on plates. Mashed potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry sauce creates slippery spots on the other. Weight watch and indigestion warnings have been issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness around the beltway. During the evening, the turkey will diminish and taper off to leftovers, dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator. Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to eat sandwiches will be established. Flurries of leftovers can be expected both days with a 50 percent chance of scattered soup late in the day. We expect a warming trend where soup develops. By early next week, eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will be the bone. A real turkeyA blonde was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but couldnt find one big enough for her family. She asked the stock boy, Do these turkeys get any bigger? The stock boy answered, No maam theyre dead. Once she got the turkey home she called the newspapers food editor for help. She asked, I bought a nine-pound turkey. Could you tell me how long to cook it in my new microwave? Just a minute, the food editor said, as he turned to check his reference book. Oh, thank you, she said, Youve been a big help. Good-bye! This blonde also wanted to make sweet potatoes, which were one of her husbands favorites. She confided in a neighbor and asked, Ive finally been able to make them sweet, she said, but how do you make them orange? Another turkeyA new young bride called her mother in tears. She sobbed, Robert doesnt appreciate what I do for him. Now, now, her mother comforted, I am sure it was all just a misunderstanding. No, mother, the young woman lamented. I bought a frozen turkey loaf and he yelled at me about the price. Well, that is being miserly, the mother agreed, Those turkey rolls are only a few dollars. No, mother it wasnt the price of the turkey roll, it was the airplane ticket. Airplane ticket? What did you need an airplane ticket for? Well mother, when I went to fix it, I looked at the directions on the back and it said, Prepare from a frozen state, so I flew to Alaska. Drum sticksShe baked the turkey for almost five days because the instructions said 1 hour per pound and she weighed 108. For Thanksgiving the Poultry Raisers of America are sending the biggest turkey in the country to the White House. The Republicans claim hes already there. When I realized I was addicted to Thanksgiving leftovers, I decided to quit cold turkey. When the guest speaker was introduced after a Thanksgiving dinner the emcee said, We have just enjoyed a turkey stuffed with sage. It is now my pleasure to introduce a sage stuffed with turkey.Trophy turkeyLittle Bruno was sitting in his grandmothers kitchen, watching her prepare the Thanksgiving meal. What are you doing? Bruno asked. Oh, Im just stuffing the turkey, his grandmother replied. Thats cool! Bruno said. Are you going to hang it next to the deer? Political killingI know a farmer who used a foolproof way of getting his turkeys ready for Thanksgiving. For the last month all he did was show the turkeys the TV presidential political debates, the candidates commercials, and the evening political news. Now they are ready to go quietly. Some have even volunteered. Good hunting This year I had my chance to do the traditional thing of shooting my own turkey for Thanksgiving. You should have seen the people scatter in the meat department. Oak Run residents Dick and Jane Frank wish you a happy thanksgiving. Here are some turkeys for Thanksgiving on Pun Alley P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank Sumter Electric Cooperative (SECO) has announced that many of its member/customers will be surveyed by telephone this month and in early December. SECO Director of Corporate Communications, Barry Bowman, said that the electric cooperative does this annual survey to get opinions on how co-op members feel their utility is doing with regard to such things as service reliability and customer service. Bowman said, Generally speaking, SECO gets very high marks from the members during these surveys. In fact, a series of questions in the survey allows our coop to be ranked against all other types of electric utilities in the nation on the American Consumer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). Since beginning to use the ACSI to make this comparison, SECOs scores from member/customers on satisfaction are amongst the highest of any utility in the country. We are a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative. That means our focus is on delivering the most reliable, lowest cost electricity possible and best customer service we can to our members. We hope the members will take the time to answer the survey being conducted by NRECA Market Research Services on our behalf, he said. Bowman concluded by noting that the survey process is one of the numerous ways that SECO stays in close touch with its overall membership. He stated that, in a co-op, member thoughts and opinions are important and help guide co-op operations. Sumter Electric to survey customers John M.

I guess I can still legitimately praise George Tomyn and Dr. Diana Greene for the school superintendent campaign they ran. While all the attention was focused on the unfortunate events in the sheriffs race, which at this writing still isnt settled, Tomyn and Greene ran a quiet, seemingly positive campaign. Voters heard the qualifications from each, and didnt get the nasty, negative mailings, etc., that permeated other races. But just when you think everything was going along smoothly, Tomyn, less than 48 hours after winning the election. announced changes in his administrative staff to take effect on Nov. 26. Among those changes was the reassigning of Greene and Wally Wagoner, Tomyns primary opponent, to jobs that removed them from the deputy superintendent role that each held. Greene has become principal of Fessenden Elementary, and Wagoner, well, hes just reassigned and we dont know where. Tomyn insisted that these were just reassignments and not demotions, but come back a month from now and compare the current salaries of the pair to what they will be making then. I guess thats the people living up to the saying, To the victor belongs the spoils. Still, I cant help but think that the school system would have been better served if Greene and Wagoner had remained in their current jobs. Furthermore, it would seem to have been politically expedient for Tomyn to take the high road and keep these two people in their posts. They might have become allies, ensuring Tomyns re-election in the future. Now, I can just see the wheels turning for 2016. You can gear up right now for the school superintendent race, and you can bet that this move by Tomyn will be front and center in the debate. Hows that for having something to look forward to? Speaking of clean campaigns, there were a couple of others that went all right, too. In the race for supervisor of elections, Wes Wilcox easily outpointed Judge Cochran. Wilcox ran on his own record, choosing not to criticize Cochran, who had no experience in the elections office. The outcome was not a surprise, but neither mans reputation was tainted. Congratulations to both. And in the lone contested County Commission race, things went smoothly as Earl Arnett defeated Jessica Hadley. Both also stayed above the fray, and we even got a live phone call from Arnetts camp. Again, nice job by both. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

EDITORS NOTE: Today we yield our editorial space to Edwin Sewell, a fifth grader in Mrs. Del Valles class at Hammett Bowen Elementary. Edwin read this essay at Mondays Veterans Day event at Veterans Memorial Park in Ocala.BY EDWIN SEWELL Special to the Citizen The reason I like Veterans Day is because my grandpa was in the Marines. He served his country so that we may have freedom. People that serve in the armed forces help keep our country safe from terrorists that try to hurt our country. Many people have died in wars and this day is for us to remember those who died for our country and honor those who are still here. The second reason I like Veterans Day is because they got to drive cool vehicles like helicopters, tanks, and aircraft. They used these types of vehicles to fight in wars and try to defeat the enemy. These people are willing to risk their lives to help save our country. They deserve a lot of respect. When they go and fight they earn medals for doing heroic things such as saving people or other soldiers. The uniforms have stripes and many medals. The third reason I like Veterans Day is because my grandpa takes me to the wall in town that has all the names of people that died in the war and we try to find some of his friends. We look over all the names and I even tried to count them a few times but it was too many. We get to meet other people there and my grandpa will talk with them and we hear their family story as well. I met this one guy who was in a wheelchair and had only one arm, he was nice and told me what happen to his legs and arm. The fourth reason I like Veterans Day is because my grandpa comes over and we barbecue and eat well. My grandpa tells us stories about what it was like in boot camp and all the different places he had been. Sometimes I see my grandpa cry for his friends he lost. My grandpa was in the Vietnam War. He has some money from other countries that he showed us and told me one day he would give it to me and my sister. My mom and dad cook a lot of food that my grandpa likes and we eat until we cant eat any more. The final reason I like Veterans Day is because we live in a country where we are free and have many choices and we would not have this if it wasnt for people like my grandpa. The people who serve their country and fight for what is right. One day when I grow up I hope that there will not be any more wars so I dont have to fight. Maybe one day all the countries can learn to get along with one another. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY What Veterans Day means to me It wasnt a demotion! Oh, really? LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY BRYAN GOLDEN Special to the Citizen Thanksgiving is much more than a big meal with family and friends. Its a time to reflect on, and be thankful for, all of the good things you have. Even with all of the uncertainty and turmoil in the world, you have so much to be thankful for. Its important to be grateful, not just on Thanksgiving, but each and every day. Rather than lamenting what you feel is lacking in your life, begin each new day by developing an attitude of gratitude. Take inventory of your blessings and you will be surprised at just how much you have to be thankful for. If you have enough to eat, a place to live, a way to get around, people who care about you, or people you care about, then you are wealthy. If you lack any of these elements, you must still be grateful for what you do have, while striving to obtain whatever is absent. Focus on all positive aspects of your life. Take nothing for granted. Every morning, recharge your appreciation. Be happy for everything there is, not upset over what you feel is missing. Dreams of the future shouldnt diminish appreciation for the present. If all you do is concentrate on what you want, you wont enjoy today. Dont be jealous of others; what they do or have has no bearing on you. You can feel bitter or resentful for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you feel something is missing from your life, things arent going your way, or you have been treated unfairly. You may wonder, Why do these things always happen to me? Lifes problems tend to dominate your thoughts, turning your focus to what you feel is wrong. You may start to resent those who appear to be better off. Youre apt to dwell on things you think would make your life better if you had them. If only you had more money, more time, a bigger house, a different car, a different job, a different boss, had picked a different career, etc. Once your attitude becomes one of deficiency instead of abundance and appreciation, you can become overwhelmed by feelings of frustration and feel like a victim. As this happens, a consuming vicious cycle starts. Being bitter or resentful blows situations out of proportion. People who are bitter frequently find that their situations deteriorate and their mental and physical health decays. Its difficult, if not impossible, to achieve your goals while you are bitter or resentful. Regardless of what challenges might befall you, bitterness makes finding solutions much more elusive. There is no point to feeling bitter since it accomplishes nothing, harms you and makes things worse. Filling yourself with gratitude on a daily basis makes you feel good, while driving out negative feelings. Begin your practice of gratitude each morning as soon as you wake. Every day is a great day. If you have any doubts, try missing one. Take inventory of everything, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, that is good in your life. If it helps, make a written list of all things you are grateful for. Read your list every day. As you do this, you will build and reinforce your attitude of gratitude. Dont waste any time with what you feel you dont have. Keep things in perspective. Consider all the people who have overcome difficulties far worse than yours. Dont be consumed by your problems, there is always a solution. Maintaining an attitude of gratitude allows your mind to devise a resolution for your circumstances. Make everyday a day of Thanksgiving and you will be amazed how much better your life will become. Bryan Golden is the author of Dare to Live Without Limits.

READER OPINIONS INVITED Thanksgiving: So much to be thankful for EDITORS NOTE: As has been stated the past few weeks, we will not run I told you so or sour grapes letters concerning the election. Also, remember that letter writers are now limited to one letter per month. The laughing stockWhat is it that we do to continually make Florida the laughing stock of the United States every time there is a National Election? It seems that Tallahassee is unable to allow voters from our state to take part in an efficient, accurate, well run election. Our latest debacle from our Republican governor Scott is just the latest example of partisan politics where Democrats, independents, blacks and Hispanics are being dissuaded from voting.

In addition, both he and his partner Fred have to work closely with our committees and many clubs to make sure their functions go off smoothly. I love the work, especially outdoors. Ive never been one to sit in an office. Justin intimates. He has the perfect job for that, it would seem. Always greeting people with a friendly smile and good sense of humor, Justin enjoys the people as well as the work here at Cherrywood. He states that everyone here has always treated him well and made him feel right at home. When you see Justin, be sure to thank him for his hard work and thank him also for his service to our country. It is refreshing to see a young person with a deep commitment to his family; his country and to this community. Indeed Justin has an interesting past; a very bright future and he is an asset to our quality of life here at Cherrywood. From Your ReporterThis past week I had the high honor of taking part in our Veterans Day service. I thank the following individuals on the Board of the Cherrywood Veterans Club who made it possible; Bill Mahar, president; Richard Hurley, treasurer; Ruth Hurley, secretary and Marty Duesel, trustee. Lastly, and most important, I thank the veterans. Do you have an idea or suggestions on articles you would like to see in the Cherrywood Section of the Citizen? If so, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Your comments are always welcome and I do enjoy hearing from the readers. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 BY: LYNDA SPENCE M.S. County Extension ServiceIts funny how tough times have a way of bringing out the clever in each of us. Given a nudge, we surprise ourselves at how resourceful we can really be. This holiday season, decide to do it your way, not the advertisers way. Make your own set of rules. Seize these economic times to create a new normal for your holidays. Read on for ideas. Consider giving gifts to children only. Its hard to convince a child that opening a present is not the best part of the gift experience. Adults, though, are able to see a bigger picture. Gift certificates are gifts from the heart. With a little creativity, you can save your wallet from being malled during the holiday season. Remember, the goal of gift-giving should be to give pleasure to the person receiving it. With the recipient in mind, consider giving gift certificates for errands, chores or favors. Some gift certificate ideas: grocery shopping, babysitting, cooking, baking, mowing the lawn, pulling weeds, ironing, recording music, washing a car, cleaning a home or garage or putting photos in albums. Pass it on. We all lead busy lives. The gift of time is invaluable. Do you have a special interest or talent? How about offering a lesson on guitar playing, cake decorating, painting, oil/tire changing, knitting, fishing, bread making, wood working, candy making or target practice? Re-gifting is the talk of the town, and thats not a bad thing. Sometimes, the story that goes along with the gift may just outdo the gift. Consider giving the last great book you bought with a note about what the book meant to you. Or, create a journal of a vacation and include pictures and a map of the destination. If you must spend money, consider unique gifts you can purchase for under $20. Consider giving smartphone apps, a rare coin, gas cards, unusual candy or a piggy bank partially full of change. Gift basket ideas Small gift baskets, done right, are eye candy. Let your imagine fly. Pick a theme and go to town. Beverages: Cocoa or tea kit. Honey: Jar of local honey, honey dipper and package of gourmet crackers. Cheese: Cheese and cheese knife specifically for slicing that type of cheese. Correspondence: Homemade notes or greeting cards, stamps, pen. Gardening: Gloves, seeds from your garden, a small hand-painted flower pot. Fishing: Lures, hooks and line. Cooking: A favorite recipe with a sampling of the delectable dish or treat. Remember, its not the gift; its the thought that counts. Put a new holiday gift-giving philosophy into practice this year and make it your new holiday normal. Imagine how fun it can be dreaming up the next great creative gift! Have fun with it!

But if you do, you could risk losing out on a future opportunity. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovines creative forces start revving up as you plan for the upcoming holidays. Some practical aspects also emerge, especially where money is involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Moments of doubt disrupt your otherwise clear sense of purpose. Dont ignore them. They could be telling you not to rush into anything until you know more about it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A planned trip might have to be delayed. Plan to use this new free time to update your skills and your resume so youll be ready when a new job opportunity opens. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A flood of holiday party bids from business contacts allows you to mix work and pleasure. Your knowledge plus your Leonine charm wins you a new slew of admirers. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) An unexpected act by a colleague complicates an agreement, causing delays in implementing it. Check out the motive for this move: Its not what you might suspect. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might want to cut ties with an ingrate who seems to have forgotten your past generosity. But there might be a reason for this behavior that you should know about. Ask. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Be careful not to set things in stone. Much could happen over the next several days that will make you rethink some decisions and maybe change them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your plans to help provide holiday cheer for the less fortunate inspire others to follow your generous example. Expect welcome news by weeks end. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Youre in your glory as you start planning for the holiday season ahead. But leave time to deal with a problem that needs a quick and fair resolution. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) The upcoming holiday season provides a perfect setting for strengthening relationships with kin and others. A new contact has important information. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Instead of fretting over a cutting remark by a co-worker, chalk it up to an outburst of envy of your well-respected status among both your colleagues and superiors.

Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com The City of Crystal River and the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce invite you to submit an application for the 26th annual Manatee Festival, Jan. 19-20, in downtown Crystal River. This festival has a long-standing tradition of fine artists displaying their artwork in a juried environment. January is traditionally the start of the outdoor festival route, and last year the Manatee Festival brought in more than 15,000 visitors during the two day period. A few vendor spaces are still available for this renowned fine art festival, therefore apply today. We are inviting those artists who have been entered in juried shows before, and wish to present their skills to the public in a well-known and well attended event. We are seeking skilled artisans who work in all media, including clay, metal, oil, wood, watercolor, gold and silver, organic materials, photography and mixed media. While artists from all over the nation are invited and do attend, we would like to extend a special welcome to local Florida artists wishing to showcase their work. This festival draws the public from all over the nation, including many winter visitors from major metropolitan areas in the north. This is a wonderful opportunity to increase name recognition, make sales, and take part in a festival that has a strong local cultural background. Come enjoy the weather and mingle with fellow artists. Make friendships and memories that last a lifetime. While you are here take the opportunity to enjoy a few moments with the creature often associated with the folklore of mermaids, the Manatee. Citrus County and Crystal River have many opportunities to enrich your knowledge of Florida history and see why we are called The Gem of Floridas Nature Coast. For those wishing to apply, simply go to www.floridamanateefestival.com and download an application, or call Jeff Inglehart at the Citrus County Chamber 352-795-3149.

HOURS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 A new voice will lead the Marion County Board of County Commissioners. On Nov. 6 at their regularly scheduled board meeting, commissioners voted to have Commissioner Kathy Bryant take the chairmans seat. Bryant is serving her first term on the Board of County Commissioners; this is her first time serving as chair. Commissioner Carl Zalak will take the vice chair seat. This is Zalaks first term on the commission and first time serving as vice chair. As chairman, Bryant will manage board meetings, public hearings and workshops. She will also establish board priorities and serve as a board ambassador at many public events. In the absence of the chair, the vice chair will assume these responsibilities. Bryant replaces former commissioner Charlie Stone as chair. During her tenure on the board, Bryant considers her involvement with consolidating public safety communications, bringing the Ocala 489 industrial park to fruition, and solving Marion Countys solid waste dilemma through purchasing air space at the Bushnell ACMS landfill to be among her top accomplishments. For her upcoming year as chair, she would like to continue to target economic development. I want to keep the board focused on economic development and make sure we continue moving our community forward, Bryant said. One of the other things I look forward to this year is hopefully putting together our solid waste authority. Ill also continue to make sure we are fiscally responsible. Citizens elected Bryant to the commission in 2010. Since joining the commission, she has served as the board liaison to the Tourist Development Council, among other local agencies. Bryant also serves on the Board of Directors for the Florida Association of Counties and serves as vice chair of that agencys health and human services policy leadership team. She is also a graduate of the Florida Association of Counties Certified County Commissioner program.

Light Up Ocala, the communitys official kick off of the holiday season, is held the Saturday before Thanksgiving, Nov. 17 this year, on the Downtown Square and surrounding streets.

To accommodate the larger crowds, the city will be spreading Light up Ocala expands in area Effective Nov. 19, the Ocala Social Security office will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. a reduction of 30 minutes each weekday. In addition, beginning Jan. 2, 2013, the office will close to the public at noon every Wednesday. While agency employees will continue to work their regular hours, this shorter public window will allow them to complete face-toface interviews and process claims work without incurring the cost of overtime. The significantly reduced funding provided by Congress under the continuing resolution for the first six months of the fiscal year makes it impossible for the agency to provide the overtime needed to handle service to the public as it has done in the past. In addition, on Nov. 23, the day after Thanksgiving, all Social Security field offices will be closed to the public. As we did last year, employees working that day will focus on reducing backlogged workloads. Most Social Security services do not require a visit to a local office. Many services, including applying for retirement, disability or Social Security makes cut in afternoon office hours PLEASESEEHOURS PAGE3 The City of Ocala is in preliminary discussions with the New York Yankees organization. The dialogue is centered on the possible relocation of the Yankees Class A Advanced affiliate minor league team currently situated in Tampa and does not include Yankees' Spring Training. Any proposal for relocation to Ocala is contingent upon approval by the Ocala City Council, Major League Baseball, Minor League Baseball and the Florida State League, states Anthony Bruno of Yankee Global Enterprises, LLC. The City is excited about the opportunity to investigate the potential immediate and collateral benefits that might be gained from its association with a prestigious professional sports franchise and is currently exercising due diligence, says Ocala Mayor Kent Guinn. Movement of this particular team is being considered as a means to bring a professional sports franchise to an underserved market with a strong fan support base. The Tampa Yankees were established in 1994. In 1996 they moved to the new George M. Steinbrenner Field, the New York Yankees' spring training facility. Since their inception they have won five league championships, in 1994, 2001, 2004, 2009, and 2010.

HOURSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 A new voice will lead the Marion County Board of County Commissioners. On Nov. 6 at their regularly scheduled board meeting, commissioners voted to have Commissioner Kathy Bryant take the chairmans seat. Bryant is serving her first term on the Board of County Commissioners; this is her first time serving as chair. Commissioner Carl Zalak will take the vice chair seat. This is Zalaks first term on the commission and first time serving as vice chair. As chairman, Bryant will manage board meetings, public hearings and workshops. She will also establish board priorities and serve as a board ambassador at many public events. In the absence of the chair, the vice chair will assume these responsibilities. Bryant replaces former commissioner Charlie Stone as chair. During her tenure on the board, Bryant considers her involvement with consolidating public safety communications, bringing the Ocala 489 industrial park to fruition, and solving Marion Countys solid waste dilemma through purchasing air space at the Bushnell ACMS landfill to be among her top accomplishments. For her upcoming year as chair, she would like to continue to target economic development. I want to keep the board focused on economic development and make sure we continue moving our community forward, Bryant said. One of the other things I look forward to this year is hopefully putting together our solid waste authority. Ill also continue to make sure we are fiscally responsible. Citizens elected Bryant to the commission in 2010. Since joining the commission, she has served as the board liaison to the Tourist Development Council, among other local agencies. Bryant also serves on the Board of Directors for the Florida Association of Counties and serves as vice chair of that agencys health and human services policy leadership team. She is also a graduate of the Florida Association of Counties Certified County Commissioner program.

This festival has a long-standing tradition of fine artists displaying their artwork in a juried environment. January is traditionally the start of the outdoor festival route, and last year the Manatee Festival brought in more than 15,000 visitors during the two day period. A few vendor spaces are still available for this renowned fine art festival, therefore apply today. We are inviting those artists who have been entered in juried shows before, and wish to present their skills to the public in a well-known and well attended event. We are seeking skilled artisans who work in all media, including clay, metal, oil, wood, watercolor, gold and silver, organic materials, photography and mixed media. While artists from all over the nation are invited and do attend, we would like to extend a special welcome to local Florida artists wishing to showcase their work. This festival draws the public from all over the nation, including many winter visitors from major metropolitan areas in the north. This is a wonderful opportunity to increase name recognition, make sales, and take part in a festival that has a strong local cultural background. Come enjoy the weather and mingle with fellow artists. Make friendships and memories that last a lifetime. While you are here take the opportunity to enjoy a few moments with the creature often associated with the folklore of mermaids, the Manatee. Citrus County and Crystal River have many opportunities to enrich your knowledge of Florida history and see why we are called The Gem of Floridas Nature Coast. For those wishing to apply, simply go to www.floridamanateefestival.com and download an application, or call Jeff Inglehart at the Citrus County Chamber 352-795-3149.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) The upcoming holiday season provides a perfect setting for strengthening relationships with kin and others. A new contact has important information. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Instead of fretting over a cutting remark by a co-worker, chalk it up to an outburst of envy of your well-respected status among both your colleagues and superiors.

Always greeting people with a friendly smile and good sense of humor, Justin enjoys the people as well as the work here at Cherrywood. He states that everyone here has always treated him well and made him feel right at home. When you see Justin, be sure to thank him for his hard work and thank him also for his service to our country. It is refreshing to see a young person with a deep commitment to his family; his country and to this community. Indeed Justin has an interesting past; a very bright future and he is an asset to our quality of life here at Cherrywood.

County Extension ServiceIts funny how tough times have a way of bringing out the clever in each of us. Given a nudge, we surprise ourselves at how resourceful we can really be. This holiday season, decide to do it your way, not the advertisers way. Make your own set of rules. Seize these economic times to create a new normal for your holidays. Read on for ideas. Consider giving gifts to children only. Its hard to convince a child that opening a present is not the best part of the gift experience. Adults, though, are able to see a bigger picture. Gift certificates are gifts from the heart. With a little creativity, you can save your wallet from being malled during the holiday season. Remember, the goal of gift-giving should be to give pleasure to the person receiving it. With the recipient in mind, consider giving gift certificates for errands, chores or favors. Some gift certificate ideas: grocery shopping, babysitting, cooking, baking, mowing the lawn, pulling weeds, ironing, recording music, washing a car, cleaning a home or garage or putting photos in albums. Pass it on. We all lead busy lives. The gift of time is invaluable. Do you have a special interest or talent? How about offering a lesson on guitar playing, cake decorating, painting, oil/tire changing, knitting, fishing, bread making, wood working, candy making or target practice? Re-gifting is the talk of the town, and thats not a bad thing. Sometimes, the story that goes along with the gift may just outdo the gift. Consider giving the last great book you bought with a note about what the book meant to you. Or, create a journal of a vacation and include pictures and a map of the destination. If you must spend money, consider unique gifts you can purchase for under $20. Consider giving smartphone apps, a rare coin, gas cards, unusual candy or a piggy bank partially full of change. Gift basket ideas Small gift baskets, done right, are eye candy. Let your imagine fly. Pick a theme and go to town. Beverages: Cocoa or tea kit. Honey: Jar of local honey, honey dipper and package of gourmet crackers. Cheese: Cheese and cheese knife specifically for slicing that type of cheese. Correspondence: Homemade notes or greeting cards, stamps, pen. Gardening: Gloves, seeds from your garden, a small hand-painted flower pot. Fishing: Lures, hooks and line. Cooking: A favorite recipe with a sampling of the delectable dish or treat. Remember, its not the gift; its the thought that counts. Put a new holiday gift-giving philosophy into practice this year and make it your new holiday normal. Imagine how fun it can be dreaming up the next great creative gift! Have fun with it!Lynda Spence is an Extension Agent at UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service and offers group classes on family and consumer sciences topics to groups at no charge.

State Road 200 1 3 / 4 Miles West of I-75 Worship Service 8:00 & 11:00 AM Bible Class & Sunday School 9:30 AM Pastor Joe Adams 237-2233 Sharing the Joy of Jesus Christ! 000D7EJ www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, November 16, 2012 Just when you think youre going to have a nice, positive, post-election column, something happens to gum up the works. I guess I can still legitimately praise George Tomyn and Dr. Diana Greene for the school superintendent campaign they ran. While all the attention was focused on the unfortunate events in the sheriffs race, which at this writing still isnt settled, Tomyn and Greene ran a quiet, seemingly positive campaign. Voters heard the qualifications from each, and didnt get the nasty, negative mailings, etc., that permeated other races. But just when you think everything was going along smoothly, Tomyn, less than 48 hours after winning the election. announced changes in his administrative staff to take effect on Nov. 26. Among those changes was the reassigning of Greene and Wally Wagoner, Tomyns primary opponent, to jobs that removed them from the deputy superintendent role that each held. Greene has become principal of Fessenden Elementary, and Wagoner, well, hes just reassigned and we dont know where. Tomyn insisted that these were just reassignments and not demotions, but come back a month from now and compare the current salaries of the pair to what they will be making then. I guess thats the people living up to the saying, To the victor belongs the spoils. Still, I cant help but think that the school system would have been better served if Greene and Wagoner had remained in their current jobs. Furthermore, it would seem to have been politically expedient for Tomyn to take the high road and keep these two people in their posts. They might have become allies, ensuring Tomyns re-election in the future. Now, I can just see the wheels turning for 2016. You can gear up right now for the school superintendent race, and you can bet that this move by Tomyn will be front and center in the debate. Hows that for having something to look forward to? Speaking of clean campaigns, there were a couple of others that went all right, too. In the race for supervisor of elections, Wes Wilcox easily outpointed Judge Cochran. Wilcox ran on his own record, choosing not to criticize Cochran, who had no experience in the elections office. The outcome was not a surprise, but neither mans reputation was tainted. Congratulations to both. And in the lone contested County Commission race, things went smoothly as Earl Arnett defeated Jessica Hadley. Both also stayed above the fray, and we even got a live phone call from Arnetts camp. Again, nice job by both. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

EDITORS NOTE: Today we yield our editorial space to Edwin Sewell, a fifth grader in Mrs. Del Valles class at Hammett Bowen Elementary. Edwin read this essay at Mondays Veterans Day event at Veterans Memorial Park in Ocala.BY EDWIN SEWELL Special to the CitizenThe reason I like Veterans Day is because my grandpa was in the Marines. He served his country so that we may have freedom. People that serve in the armed forces help keep our country safe from terrorists that try to hurt our country. Many people have died in wars and this day is for us to remember those who died for our country and honor those who are still here. The second reason I like Veterans Day is because they got to drive cool vehicles like helicopters, tanks, and aircraft. They used these types of vehicles to fight in wars and try to defeat the enemy. These people are willing to risk their lives to help save our country. They deserve a lot of respect. When they go and fight they earn medals for doing heroic things such as saving people or other soldiers. The uniforms have stripes and many medals. The third reason I like Veterans Day is because my grandpa takes me to the wall in town that has all the names of people that died in the war and we try to find some of his friends. We look over all the names and I even tried to count them a few times but it was too many. We get to meet other people there and my grandpa will talk with them and we hear their family story as well. I met this one guy who was in a wheelchair and had only one arm, he was nice and told me what happen to his legs and arm. The fourth reason I like Veterans Day is because my grandpa comes over and we barbecue and eat well. My grandpa tells us stories about what it was like in boot camp and all the different places he had been. Sometimes I see my grandpa cry for his friends he lost. My grandpa was in the Vietnam War. He has some money from other countries that he showed us and told me one day he would give it to me and my sister. My mom and dad cook a lot of food that my grandpa likes and we eat until we cant eat any more. The final reason I like Veterans Day is because we live in a country where we are free and have many choices and we would not have this if it wasnt for people like my grandpa. The people who serve their country and fight for what is right. One day when I grow up I hope that there will not be any more wars so I dont have to fight. Maybe one day all the countries can learn to get along with one another. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY What Veterans Day means to me It wasnt a demotion! Oh, really? LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY BRYAN GOLDEN Special to the Citizen Thanksgiving is much more than a big meal with family and friends. Its a time to reflect on, and be thankful for, all of the good things you have. Even with all of the uncertainty and turmoil in the world, you have so much to be thankful for. Its important to be grateful, not just on Thanksgiving, but each and every day. Rather than lamenting what you feel is lacking in your life, begin each new day by developing an attitude of gratitude. Take inventory of your blessings and you will be surprised at just how much you have to be thankful for. If you have enough to eat, a place to live, a way to get around, people who care about you, or people you care about, then you are wealthy. If you lack any of these elements, you must still be grateful for what you do have, while striving to obtain whatever is absent. Focus on all positive aspects of your life. Take nothing for granted. Every morning, recharge your appreciation. Be happy for everything there is, not upset over what you feel is missing. Dreams of the future shouldnt diminish appreciation for the present. If all you do is concentrate on what you want, you wont enjoy today. Dont be jealous of others; what they do or have has no bearing on you. You can feel bitter or resentful for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you feel something is missing from your life, things arent going your way, or you have been treated unfairly. You may wonder, Why do these things always happen to me? Lifes problems tend to dominate your thoughts, turning your focus to what you feel is wrong. You may start to resent those who appear to be better off. Youre apt to dwell on things you think would make your life better if you had them. If only you had more money, more time, a bigger house, a different car, a different job, a different boss, had picked a different career, etc. Once your attitude becomes one of deficiency instead of abundance and appreciation, you can become overwhelmed by feelings of frustration and feel like a victim. As this happens, a consuming vicious cycle starts. Being bitter or resentful blows situations out of proportion. People who are bitter frequently find that their situations deteriorate and their mental and physical health decays. Its difficult, if not impossible, to achieve your goals while you are bitter or resentful. Regardless of what challenges might befall you, bitterness makes finding solutions much more elusive. There is no point to feeling bitter since it accomplishes nothing, harms you and makes things worse. Filling yourself with gratitude on a daily basis makes you feel good, while driving out negative feelings. Begin your practice of gratitude each morning as soon as you wake. Every day is a great day. If you have any doubts, try missing one. Take inventory of everything, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, that is good in your life. If it helps, make a written list of all things you are grateful for. Read your list every day. As you do this, you will build and reinforce your attitude of gratitude. Dont waste any time with what you feel you dont have. Keep things in perspective. Consider all the people who have overcome difficulties far worse than yours. Dont be consumed by your problems, there is always a solution. Maintaining an attitude of gratitude allows your mind to devise a resolution for your circumstances. Make everyday a day of Thanksgiving and you will be amazed how much better your life will become.Bryan Golden is the author of Dare to Live Without Limits.

READER OPINIONS INVITED Thanksgiving: So much to be thankful for EDITORS NOTE: As has been stated the past few weeks, we will not run I told you so or sour grapes letters concerning the election. Also, remember that letter writers are now limited to one letter per month.The laughing stockWhat is it that we do to continually make Florida the laughing stock of the United States every time there is a National Election? It seems that Tallahassee is unable to allow voters from our state to take part in an efficient, accurate, well run election. Our latest debacle from our Republican governor Scott is just the latest example of partisan politics where Democrats, independents, blacks and Hispanics are being dissuaded from voting. This latest election held on Nov. 6 is proof positive that those officials in Tallahassee are not looking for fair elections where every vote counts.

Friday, November 16, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, November 16, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Those in charge are making Florida the laughing stock of America and yes even the world where third world countries are laughing at us for calling our elections legitimate. How many businesses from America or from anywhere in the world will want to locate companies in Florida if we cant even run a statewide election in an honest and forthright manor. After each election we are being told that unanticipated problems show up, such as too many voters, too many amendments, not enough voting locations, somebody unplugged the voting machines and no one could find an outlet (joke), those in Tallahassee believed that more of us could vote in fewer locations and in fewer voting days, shortened voting hours, history doesnt count and lastly, no one will remember these problems during the next election period. Governor Scott can be proud and still hold his head high when stating those dozen or so illegal voters were stopped in their tracks because of his valiant efforts. Jerry Segovis OcalaIf I were the devilAll seniors should remember Paul Harvey, but if you do or dont, please go on line to http://stg.do/9LDc to hear his prediction made on ABC April 3, l965, it only lasts 3 minutes. Regardless of your political persuasion, you will be able to confirm what a wise man Harvey was and how his If I were the devil is playing out in America today. It is scary so Satan must truly be smiling! The very principles that made us the greatest country in the world are no longer the backbone of our nation. We are now a nation who is openly turning away from God and we will pay the price for doing so. We have made our bed, now we will have to live with it. We have invited God to remove his blessings from America and he may just do that Dont be shocked to see us hit with more natural disasters than ever before as God has no choice but to bring us back to our knees, one way or the other. Get familiar with biblical history, for as then, He is still in charge! I pray I am wrong regarding the above, join me in this prayer. Wayne Rackley Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Now that we have gotten past the recent elections, we can get back to life as normal. Of course, I am not sure what normal really means. One mans normal is another mans over the cliff. I am not quite sure I am normal and I fear bringing this query to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. My fear is that she will tell me the truth. You know what we Americans think about the truth. There was a time when truth was a pretty stable thing. There were certain things that were absolute truth and no ifs, ands or buts about it. Those were the good old days. Nowadays truth is not as clear as it once was. What was true in the day, is now altogether a different matter. Being the simpleminded man that I am, it is very hard for me to keep up with all of this nonsense. I mean, after all, how do you know what is true if it changes all the time? I think if it is true, it is always true. That only beguiles my age. If truth is as slippery as some people are indicating, how do I know what is true today? It does not matter what was true yesterday. That was yesterday. Today is a new day and henceforth, what was true yesterday is not true today. To make matters even more confusing, what is true today will not be true tomorrow. I believe the reason I am getting bald is that I am scratching my head too much lately. I cannot seem to make heads or tails out of all the nonsense transpiring today as truth. How do people keep up and Thou pollest too much, methinks OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder know what is really true? If I plan to live quite a few more years, I am going to have to get a handle on this very thing. I am not quite sure where to go. Something has to be done so that I can figure out day by day what is really true. I shared my dilemma with my better half and as is usually the situation, she came up with a brilliant answer. Please, do not let her know I said that. She might get a big head and we cannot afford to buy a whole new set of hats. She simply said, Why dont you do what the politicians do? I did not quite know what she was getting at, so I inquired further. Silly, her pet name for Yours Truly, the politicians always take a poll before they decide on anything. It dawned on me like a morning in June. Of course. Whenever a politician wants to know what truth is flying on any given day, he reverts to taking a poll. Out of that poll, he can know what the truth is for that day. Amazing. I need to learn some lessons from todays politician. The first thing I need to understand from a politicians point of view is, What I am saying at the time is not necessarily what I mean. This is convenient and frees me up to say things I normally might put a check on. The checks in the mail and I now am free to say whatever is on my mind at the moment. The first thing I need to do is find out what is on the mind of the people I am talking to. Whatever is on their mind is exactly what is on my mind. This has such a freeing aspect to it. Another thing from a politicians viewpoint is, What I said yesterday doesnt count today. This also is from the polling machine. The amazing thing about most people is they do not remember what was said yesterday. A very poor politician reminds people of what they said yesterday. A politician needs to tell them what he is saying today. Because todays truth is todays truth. No need to worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will be reflected by tomorrows polling. This is very important because it reduces the necessity to use any sort of memory whatsoever. Because what I said yesterday does not really matter today. I do not have to remember what I said yesterday. If I want to know what I said yesterday, I need only take another poll today and that settles the matter. Perhaps the most important view from a politician is, Tomorrow may never come. I do not have to worry that what I am saying today will catch up with me tomorrow, for the simple reason tomorrow may never come. If it does come, so what. I will take a poll tomorrow to find out what I need to say tomorrow. I think there is something to this polling mechanism. I do not have to worry about anything; all I need to do is just take another poll. I know it may get a little confusing, but I clear up that confusion by taking another poll. It is always the last poll that really counts. Thankfully, when it comes to God, truth does not change from one day to the next. What is true today was true yesterday and will be true tomorrow. You can count on that. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8 KJV). I can always count on God being true to His Word because God never changes.Rev. James L.

His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com Thanksgiving is next Thursday, a day when we all should be thankful for our life, blessings, and liberty in the USA. We already know what the day will be like. Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the oven to an afternoon high near 190F. The kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a severe squall or cold shoulder. During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches on plates. Mashed potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry sauce creates slippery spots on the other. Weight watch and indigestion warnings have been issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness around the beltway. During the evening, the turkey will diminish and taper off to leftovers, dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator. Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to eat sandwiches will be established. Flurries of leftovers can be expected both days with a 50 percent chance of scattered soup late in the day. We expect a warming trend where soup develops. By early next week, eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will be the bone.A real turkeyA blonde was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but couldnt find one big enough for her family. She asked the stock boy, Do these turkeys get any bigger? The stock boy answered, No maam theyre dead. Once she got the turkey home she called the newspapers food editor for help. She asked, I bought a nine-pound turkey. Could you tell me how long to cook it in my new microwave? Just a minute, the food editor said, as he turned to check his reference book. Oh, thank you, she said, Youve been a big help. Good-bye! This blonde also wanted to make sweet potatoes, which were one of her husbands favorites. She confided in a neighbor and asked, Ive finally been able to make them sweet, she said, but how do you make them orange?Another turkeyA new young bride called her mother in tears. She sobbed, Robert doesnt appreciate what I do for him. Now, now, her mother comforted, I am sure it was all just a misunderstanding. No, mother, the young woman lamented. I bought a frozen turkey loaf and he yelled at me about the price. Well, that is being miserly, the mother agreed, Those turkey rolls are only a few dollars. No, mother it wasnt the price of the turkey roll, it was the airplane ticket. Airplane ticket? What did you need an airplane ticket for? Well mother, when I went to fix it, I looked at the directions on the back and it said, Prepare from a frozen state, so I flew to Alaska.Drum sticksShe baked the turkey for almost five days because the instructions said 1 hour per pound and she weighed 108. For Thanksgiving the Poultry Raisers of America are sending the biggest turkey in the country to the White House. The Republicans claim hes already there. When I realized I was addicted to Thanksgiving leftovers, I decided to quit cold turkey. When the guest speaker was introduced after a Thanksgiving dinner the emcee said, We have just enjoyed a turkey stuffed with sage. It is now my pleasure to introduce a sage stuffed with turkey.Trophy turkeyLittle Bruno was sitting in his grandmothers kitchen, watching her prepare the Thanksgiving meal. What are you doing? Bruno asked. Oh, Im just stuffing the turkey, his grandmother replied. Thats cool! Bruno said. Are you going to hang it next to the deer?Political killingI know a farmer who used a foolproof way of getting his turkeys ready for Thanksgiving. For the last month all he did was show the turkeys the TV presidential political debates, the candidates commercials, and the evening political news. Now they are ready to go quietly. Some have even volunteered.Good huntingThis year I had my chance to do the traditional thing of shooting my own turkey for Thanksgiving. You should have seen the people scatter in the meat department.Oak Run residents Dick and Jane Frank wish you a happy thanksgiving. Here are some turkeys for Thanksgiving on Pun Alley PUN ALLEY D FDick Frank Sumter Electric Cooperative (SECO) has announced that many of its member/customers will be surveyed by telephone this month and in early December. SECO Director of Corporate Communications, Barry Bowman, said that the electric cooperative does this annual survey to get opinions on how co-op members feel their utility is doing with regard to such things as service reliability and customer service. Bowman said, Generally speaking, SECO gets very high marks from the members during these surveys. In fact, a series of questions in the survey allows our coop to be ranked against all other types of electric utilities in the nation on the American Consumer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). Since beginning to use the ACSI to make this comparison, SECOs scores from member/customers on satisfaction are amongst the highest of any utility in the country. We are a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative. That means our focus is on delivering the most reliable, lowest cost electricity possible and best customer service we can to our members. We hope the members will take the time to answer the survey being conducted by NRECA Market Research Services on our behalf, he said. Bowman concluded by noting that the survey process is one of the numerous ways that SECO stays in close touch with its overall membership. He stated that, in a co-op, member thoughts and opinions are important and help guide co-op operations. Sumter Electric to survey customers John M.

E The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: Is it true that cutting and burning trees adds more global warming pollution to the atmosphere than all the cars and trucks in the world combined? -Mitchell Vale, Houston, TX By most accounts, deforestation in tropical rainforests adds more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere than the sum total of cars and trucks on the worlds roads. According to the World Carfree Network (WCN), cars and trucks account for about 14 percent of global carbon emissions, while most analysts attribute upwards of 15 percent to deforestation. The reason that logging is so bad for the climate is that when trees are felled they release the carbon they are storing into the atmosphere, where it mingles with greenhouse gases from other sources and contributes to global warming accordingly. The upshot is that we should be doing as much to prevent deforestation as we are to increase fuel efficiency and reduce automobile usage. According to the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), a leading green group, 32 million acres of tropical rainforest were cut down each year between 2000 and 2009and the pace of deforestation is only increasing. Unless we change the present system that rewards forest destruction, forest clearing will put another 200 billion tons of carbon into the atmosphere in coming decades, says EDF. Any realistic plan to reduce global warming pollution sufficientlyand in timeto avoid dangerous consequences must rely in part on preserving tropical forests, reports EDF. But its hard to convince the poor residents of the Amazon basin and other tropical regions of the world to stop cutting down trees when the forests are still worth more dead than alive. Conservation costs money, while profits from timber, charcoal, pasture and cropland drive people to cut down forests, adds EDF. Exacerbating global warming isnt the only negative impact of tropical deforestation. It also wipes out biodiversity: More than half of the worlds plant and animal species live in tropical rainforests. One way some tropical countries are reducing deforestation is through participation in the United Nations Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) program. REDD essentially works to establish incentives for the people who care for the forest to manage it sustainably while still being able to benefit economically. Examples include using less land (and therefore cutting fewer trees) for activities such as coffee growing and meat and milk production. Participating nations can then accrue and sell carbon pollution credits when they can prove they have lowered deforestation below a baseline. The REDD program has channeled over $117 million in direct financial aid and educational support into national deforestation reduction efforts in 44 developing countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America since its 2008 inception. Brazil is among the countries embracing REDD among other efforts to reduce carbon emissions. Thanks to the program, Brazil has slowed deforestation within its borders by 40 percent since 2008 and is on track to achieve an 80 percent reduction by 2020. Environmentalists are optimistic that the initial success of REDD in Brazil bodes well for reducing deforestation in other parts of the tropics as well. CONTACTS: WCN, www.worldcarfree.net; EDF, www.edf.org; REDD, www.un-redd.org.Dear EarthTalk: What is the Bluesign standard for textiles? Which if any well known manufacturers are embracing it? -Karin Romano, Bristol, CT Bluesign is an emerging standard for environmental health and safety in the manufacturing of textiles. The Switzerland-based organization, officially known as Bluesign Technologies AG, provides independent auditing of textile mills, examining manufacturing processes from raw materials and energy inputs to water and air emissions outputs. Each component is assessed based on its ecotoxicological impact. Bluesign ranks its audit findings in order of concern, and suggests ways to reduce consumption while recommending alternatives to harmful chemicals or processes where applicable. Textile mills that commit to verifiably adopting Bluesigns recommendations can become certified System Partners and attract business from a wide range of brands and retailers around the world looking for greener vendors. Eco-aware consumers can feel confident purchasing clothing items with the Bluesign label that they are buying the most environmentally friendly, socially conscious version of the jacket, shirt, sweater, pants, hat or gloves in question. Given the push for greener products of every kind, Bluesign has gained serious traction in the last few years among some of the leading brands in the outdoor clothing and gear business. Patagonia was Bluesigns first brand member and has been supportive of the program since its inception in 2000. While only 16 percent of the products in its 2012 line contain Bluesign-approved fabrics, the company has set a goal with its suppliers to have all Patagonia fabrics adhere to the standard by 2015. The North Face is a newer partner for Bluesign, but no less committed: The company has been going gangbusters for the standard since 2010, and offers several clothing items made with at least 90 percent Bluesign-approved fabrics. Over the two years it has been converting its supply chain over to Bluesign-approved vendors, The North Face has saved 85 Olympic swimming pools worth of water, 38 tanker trucks worth of chemicals, and carbon emissions similar to taking some 1,100 cars off the road for a year. Another leading outdoor clothing manufacturer embracing Bluesign is Norways Helly Hansen. In its 2012 line, more than 100 of Helly Hansens 500 products contain fabrics that meet the Bluesign standard; that number is expected to increase by 50 percent in 2013. Helly Hansen would go fully Bluesign except that some of its specialty products that need to be flame retardant do not meet the standard. The company is optimistic, however, that textile makers can solve that problemand then it can offer a 100 percent Bluesign-approved product line. Some of the other big outdoor brands that have teamed up with Bluesign include REI and Canadas Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC). Whether Bluesign catches on more widely in this dog-eat-dog, economically stressed business climate remains to be seen.

Fall decorations are half-price and you can get good buys on coats and hats. The air is clear and comfortable and the nights are cool. Yes, it is fall in Florida and not a Thanksgiving decoration can be found. Oh, there are lots of Christmas things out with Santas practically grabbing your arm and magically saying, buy me, buy anything, just get Christmas going! But before this shopping frenzy gets under way, in true Jewish fashion, Id like remind us all of the importance of Thanksgiving. First of all, no matter what religion you follow, it is good to give thanks unto the Lord. The Psalmists words still ring true. We can thank the Creator for our lives, health, family, the flowering hibiscus bush, anything we wish. And when we all think about it, it is those priceless things that are the most valuable, the love of our family and friends, the smile on our grandchildrens faces, and the pride we have in our children. We need Thanksgiving to remember these things, a day set aside so that we do not take these things for granted. Thanksgiving gives us a perfect opportunity for sharing. While many of us regularly give to a local food bank, this holiday allows us to do more, enabling others to share in a special meal that might not be available on a regular basis. The simple act of sharing sensitizes us to the need of others. In our congregation, at the Shabbat service, we bless the challah, Sabbath bread, and then offer pieces to each other. A rabbi friend of mine says: feed another and you feed the world. This simple caring act, teaches us all that to repair our fractured world, we need to start with one person and watch how the kindness grows. In our American tradition, Thanksgiving recalls the early history of this country. It saddens me when this aspect of the holiday gets ignored. The people of the Mayflower came to this country to worship in their own particular way. Others followed in the path blazed by the Pilgrims. And when in 1654, a group of Jews landed in Why we still need Thanksgiving JUDIS JOURNAL J SJudi Siegal what is now New York City, they too, were looking for a religious haven. And while there were struggles along the way, the American Experience embraced religious freedom leading to the myriad faiths that exist today in this country. We need only to look at the community interfaith Thanksgiving celebrations to see that at least one time a year we all can get together as a human community and say thanks. Thanksgiving affords us the time to spend with family and friends. There is nothing like sharing a meal to bring a family together. Whether it is moms apple pie, Aunt Sarahs green bean casserole or Sandys fabulous stuffing, we all look forward to this special meal with its seasonal treats. While many of us are so busy with work and other responsibilities, it is good to have a day to sit around the table, discuss politics, and give kudos to the cook. And while the men are watching football, the women are cleaning up and the teens are texting their friends, there is still that closeness that only a holiday can bring. There is one more reason we still need Thanksgiving and it is purely gastronomical. Thanksgiving is a perfect excuse for pumpkin pie. May we all have a wonderful holiday filled with love and sharing bringing us closer to a world at peace. Happy Thanksgiving!

THE RACKETEER By John Grisham Hes back!the John Grisham who enthralled us with The Firm and The Client and The Pelican Brief. And this wayward fan couldnt be happier. After disappointing us with some recent lackluster novels, Grisham is once again his vintage self in The Racketeer, a thriller peppered with intrigue, deceit, and revenge. The book begins with the murder of a federal judge at the lakeside vacation home he built himself. Mal Bannister, an unfairly incarcerated lawyer on racketeering charges for picking the wrong client to represent, reflects on the news: Given the importance of what they do and the controversies that surround them and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. The plot is simple until its not. Bannister has spent five years in jail and has another five ahead of him. He tells us: I am a lawyer, and I am in prison. Its a long story. Im fortythree years old and halfway through a ten-year sentence handed down by a weak and sanctimonious federal judge in Washington, D.C. All of my appeals have run their course, and there is no procedure, mechanism, obscure statute, technicality, or Hail Mary left in my depleted arsenal. But he has an ace up his sleeve. He knows who the judges killer is and will trade that information to the FBI for his freedom. Of course, had it been that simple wed have a very short novel. The real fun begins twothirds of the way through the book when the author presents us with a complicated twist. Here, Bannister a likeable central character we naturally root for, begins dazzling us with his endruns around the powersthat-be. Caveat: Dont try to skim this one. It demands close attention. There may be a few too many deus ex machina moments requiring suspension of disbelief but thats a small matter. This is an actionpacked, pageturning, and completely satisfying read with plenty of legal tidbits like rule 35 thrown in for good measure.

More than 70 people stood at attention and spontaneously began singing as the strains of our National Anthem sounded. Veterans Club President Bill Mahar then introduced the guest speaker, Col. Thomas Currie Jr. Bill and his wife Ida had been Toms sponsor during his time at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado. As the colonel stepped up to the microphone and began speaking the sunlight caught his uniform full of the awards and the medals he has received during his more than 20 years of service. It was apparent to all that he knew first-hand the perils of combat and the sacrifices of service. In his brief but moving address, he spoke of the cost of freedom. He thanked those who have served in all of our wars from World War II through and including the current war on terror. When he was finishing his talk in which he mentioned the Korean War veterans; Vietnam veterans and even the Cold War veterans, he read a poem titled, Freedom isnt Free. Loud applause and warm handshakes greeted him when he was done. A salute to the services followed with all of the service songs being played. Each service flag was trooped as the melodies sounded. In addition to the Army; Marines; Navy; Air Force and Coast Guard, for the first time, the Merchant Marine was recognized. The Veterans Club lost five of its members this past year. In memory of those who passed away, Rich and Ruth Hurley presented a rose to each widow. The crowd was hushed in quiet respect as each recipient came forward and took the red bloom. A moment of silence was broken only by the quiet tears of those who had lost loved ones. As if on cue, snapping to attention, the veterans brought their hands up in a sharp and smart salute. Then the mournful strains of Taps began echoing across the hushed crowd. When the last note faded in the distance, the Color Guard came to life. In a precision move, the 10-member group began retiring the colors. In the process, they passed in review before the dignitaries and visitors assembled in front of the clubhouse. The service was concluded. Following the ceremony, everyone went inside the clubhouse to meet with and congratulate Col. Currie and his family. Together we all enjoyed a good old American style picnic of hot dogs and hamburgers; potato salad and beans. Desserts were baked by our ladies and our volunteers grilled and prepared all the food. A small army of volunteers made this Veterans Day a smashing success and to name them all would take the better part of this newspaper. Suffice it to say that without all of our dedicated people, we would not have had a Veterans Day celebration. We thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts.

or maybe bring a couple of friends and neighbors and make up your own team. As always you can bring snacks and refreshments of your own choosing so you dont get hungry or thirsty. Entry is only a buck per person and the proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Fund. So far this year, $171 has been given to that worthwhile organization. Youll have a good time; learn some things you didnt know and be reminded of things you did know but forgot. There are lots of laughs and good natured rivalry so be there on Nov. 21 at 6 p.m. sharp. (Note: thats a time change from previous Trivia Nights.) See you on that Wednesday for Trivia Night!Singles DinnerAll of our singles are invited every Sunday to enjoy dinner at one of our local restaurants. Everyone meets in the parking lot of the clubhouse at 4 p.m. to car pool over to enjoy a relaxing meal and great company. On the 18th the venue will by Sammy Saint Johns restaurant. (May I recommend the fried shrimp and green beans?) This will be the last evening for November as the next Sunday is Thanksgiving. Dont miss out on this opportunity to make new friends and catch up with old friends over a delicious meal.Angel TreeTheres a Christmas tree in the clubhouse with cards that have the names of needy children. We would ask you to take one of these cards and make it a special Christmas for one of these youngsters. You have until Dec. 12 to purchase some things that will brighten their holidays and let them know that Santa cares. Dont let any of our kids go without getting something under their tree on Christmas Day.Trim-a-tree PartyThe tradition lives on as all the residents of Cherrywood come to the clubhouse on Sunday, Dec. 2, from 6 until approximately 9 p.m. Each resident has an ornament that they brought in on their first Christmas at Cherrywood. The decoration has the name of each resident and date that they moved in. Then, each year, the decorations are pulled out and hung on our Christmas tree. This is a great tradition when everyone gathers to share the refreshments and libations theyve brought and enjoy the Christmas spirit with each other. For those of you who are new to our community bring a bulb with your name and the date you moved in and then join this joyous tradition. As a special treat, our own Songbirds will once again entertain everyone and invite everyone to join in as they sing songs of the season. Dont miss out on one of the best of our holiday traditions. Accordion ClubOn Nov. 28, the Cherrywood Accordion Club will gather again at the clubhouse for another night of fun and musical entertainment. Bring your snacks and beverages and some friends and be there at 5:30 p.m. when professionals; amateurs and beginners all join in playing not only their accordions but an array of musical instruments. Youll be amazed and astounded at the amount of talent that these musicians bring to the large following of guests that flock to this monthly Jam Session. No one is disappointed by the performers who play a wide variety of tunes from polkas to big band; from pop to blues and everything in between. The evening is free and is directed by our own Dick Richards. If youve never been to an Accordion Club event, youve missed a special treat so dont miss this one. If you play an instrument, youre welcome to bring it of course and join in but if you just appreciate good music, come early to get a good seat and then just sit back and enjoy.Biloxi getawayHow about a four-day, three-night trip filled with excitement and gaming pleasure at one of Biloxis best casinos? Well, Jan. 1316 Cherrywood is offering an excursion to the IP Casino Resort & Spa. This trip is similar to the Christmas excursion which is filled up so if you missed booking that trip, here is a second chance at getting to Biloxi. A professional motor coach driver will take the group and bring it back so transportation is no problem. When you arrive, you will receive free $25 Slot Play and $24 in food tickets. As an added bonus, you will visit two other casinos; the Hard Rock and Palace. You will get $15 in free slot play from each of those venues as well. Should you want more information or if you need reservations contact Natalie at 352-854-4561. Start the New Year off right enjoying the shows; feasting on the delicious meals; gaming in the large clean casinos and being with friends. Oh, and did I mention that you do not have to be a Cherrywood resident to enjoy this trip?NASCAR SpecialNext Sunday, Nov. 18, racing fans will gather at the clubhouse beginning at 1 p.m. to watch NASCAR on the big screen TV. The race begins at 2 p.m. but youll want to get there early to get good seats. This event is free to all residents and their friends and you are encouraged to bring food; snacks and your favorite beverages to enhance your viewing pleasure. NASCAR is the most popular spectator sport in the country so we expect a large turn out for this first time event. If all of our racing enthusiasts show up, this will become a regular highlight of the season for our residents. Karaoke NightWhat a time everyone had at Karaoke Night this past Friday. It was the first such event for Cherrywood and the 50 or more attendees enjoyed every minute of it. This will undoubtedly become a regular part of the Cherrywood social scene in the months and years to come. Along with the singing of some very talented residents (and some not so much) there was also line dancing; slow dancing; fast dancing and sing-along. Bill Lavertue and Rich Becotte teamed up to make the clubhouse ring with a wide variety of songs that brought back old memories and created new ones for all who were there. Its amazing the amount of talent that our residents have and are willing to share. Not everyone was a star but all were received with applause; affection and good natured kidding. One thing for sure, everyone who got up to sing had courage and had a good time too. Watch your Citizen newspaper and Chirp for the next Karaoke Night and plan to come out for a funny and surprisingly good time. Cribbage PlayersOur Cherrywood Cribbage Club is still looking for new players to join them on Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. in the card room. Novice or accomplished player, everyone is welcome. Lessons will be given to those who are new to the game or who just want to learn to play so for a challenging and fun game try cribbage and for a good time with good people, come to the Cribbage Club.Veterans Club On Thursday, Dec. 6, the Veterans Club will hold its last meeting for the year at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse. Everyone is invited and urged to come out and see what your Cherrywood veterans are doing. Over the past few weeks, our organization has been especially blessed by the benevolence of an anonymous donor. This gentleman has given money specifically designated to our service men and women who are overseas and to the Ritz House of Ocala. In addition, he purchased refrigerators for the residents of Ritz House making their lives much more comfortable. We are extremely grateful for this individuals commitment to veterans and for his extraordinary support to us. At our meeting we will be discussing and voting on the disbursement of our other charitable funds as well as talking about next years events and activities. If you would like to see your Veterans Club at work, this is a great opportunity. Refreshments are served on the patio following the meeting so come out; share your thoughts and ideas and then socialize with friends and neighbors.Friday, November 16, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, November 16, 2012 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVER TISING Read the classifieds CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 SEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 The Entertainment GroupOn Saturday, Nov. 24, The Entertainment Group along with Deluca Toyota, presents Maestros Unleashed, a dynamic duo who will perform Pizzazz American Style.

BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comNews from a very busy OTOW club, a relatively new club, and exciting upcoming entertainment mark this weeks OTOW Happenings.Lions ClubEach year our nation honors its veterans, and the OTOW Lions Club, by tradition, provides the memorial event within On Top of the World to honor those who have served our nation so valiantly. This year was no exception, and on Nov. 11, at 2 p.m., the Veterans Day Ceremony was held at the Arbor Club. Lion Richard Spahn welcomed guests and attendees, and Chaplain Robert Benson gave both the invocation and the benediction. Lion President Ralph Mills was introduced, and he, in turn, introduced honored guests and fellow Lions. Lion Richard Spahn read a beautiful Veterans Day Remembrance recitation. The Colors were presented by the West Port High School R.O.R.C., followed by the Pledge of Allegiance, led by Lion Ralph Mills, and the singing of the National Anthem. The OTOW Concert Chorus then sang a medley of patriotic songs. The theme songs of each branch of service were played, and veterans in attendance stood as the song of their particular branch was played. Special recognition was given to veterans of World War II and Korea present as honored guests. Mr. Kenneth Colen presented the Memorial Wreath, and the audience bowed their heads as Taps was played. Following the retirement of the colors, three of the Lions Club members lead the audience in the singing of God Bless America, which was followed by the benediction. The Club wishes to express appreciation to Mr. Kenneth Colen, the sound crew, West Port High School Honor Guard, Chaplain Robert Benson, and the OTOW Concert Chorus for making this a successful event in honoring our nations veterans. The OTOW Club is wellknown for its continued offering of diabetes screenings. Members who wish to become screeners must first undergo training for certification, and those already trained must periodically go through a recertification training program. On October 27, 2012, club members, in addition to other Lions Club members in Ocala, attended the training program, a full day happening (9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.). New club member Charlie Hassett earned initial certification, and Carol DeYoung, Steve Snowman, and Marty Schley were re-certified. Club members wish to thank everyone who participated in this event to benefit precious children in need. As most of you recall, each year the Lions Club puts on a very popular annual fashion show. Another fashion show is planned, but with a unique twist! The models will be wearing fashions that are made of recyclable materials! The OTOW Lions Club first recycled trashy fashion show is scheduled for April 12, 2013. Club members will not be the models; instead, members of the communitys other clubs (and not just OTOW clubs) and organizations will create and model their own trashy outfits and will be competing against each other for one of three cash prizes: $1,000, $500, and $300. The money will be donated to the charity of the winners choice. Details in regards to what materials may be used in these trashy outfits, submission procedures, etc. should be available to you by mid-December. Does YOUR club or organization have what it takes to win this exciting contest? Look for further information in this newspaper and in the weekly South Marion Citizens column, OTOW Happenings. You may also contact PDG Lion Estelle Clark at pdgestelle@yahoo.com (352-861-7358) or me at ejh2025@gmail.com at any time.The Democrat Party ClubThe relatively new On Top of the World Democratic Club held a very successful on Thursday, Oct. 25. J. R. Gaillot, the Democratic candidate for Congress, and Jessica Hadley, the Democratic candidate for County Commissioner, addressed the Club, expressing their plans to serve the people if elected. The Club meets on the fourth Thursday of every month at 6 p.m. in Rooms E & F of the Arbor Conference Center. However, because of the Thanksgiving Holiday, the club will meet at the same time and location on Nov. 29. The topic for discussion will focus on the Affordable Health Care Act. For more information, visit On Top of the World Democratic Club on Facebook or phone 352 509-4942. The club would like to send out a special Thank you to Nancy Archer for her contribution of flag bunting for our Veterans Day celebration. Songbirds PianistOur vocal group, the Songbirds, is still in need of a pianist. Their first engagement at the clubhouse is for our Christmas Tree Trimming Party so its approaching fast. If you can play the piano and have some time to share your talent and expertise with an experienced group of singers then contact director Linda Sisto at 509-7245. Youll not only meet and work with some very special people; youll travel around locally to various venues making the day a little brighter for some inneed persons. Youll have fun too because Linda and our singers, along with having a good ear, also have a good sense of humor. Oil Painting ClassHave you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to paint a picture and have someone else actually recognize what it is? Have you ever tried painting as an outlet of your creative skills? Have you ever wanted to help a child at Christmas? Well if you answered yes to any of these questions, or if you have any other motivation for wanting to learn how to paint, we have an excellent opportunity for you. On Nov. 30, the very talented and accomplished teacher, Debbie Blackburn, is holding a class for all aspiring artists in our clubhouse. Not only will you receive Debbies expertise but you will also be given an 8x10 canvas, paints and brushes. All you will need to bring with you is some paper towels. Debbie teaches the Bob Ross painting technique and you will be pleasantly surprised how quickly you can learn to transform your artistic desires into artistic reality. The two-hour class is only $15 and Debbie has offered to donate this money to the Angel Tree fund for our needy children at Christmas. Classes are limited in size so call Geri as soon as you can to make your reservation for this professional instruction. Let the hidden artist in you come out with this special opportunity.Upcoming EventsAs many of you know, the Mayan Calendar runs out on Dec. 21 of this year. Some people have interpreted this to mean the end of the world will be on that date or as they have come to term it, The end of time. Well, Cherrywood is planning to have an End of Time party on the 21st to celebrate this event in style. The details are just now being worked out so youll have to watch next weeks Citizen for the times and any cost that might be involved. It promises to be a party like no other so reserve that date in your non-Mayan calendar. Also, New Years Eve is coming. Thats the annual blow out get together for all of the Cherrywood Community. There will be music; food; champagne and party favors for all who attend. Tickets are just $10 per person so make plans to ring in the New Year with friends and neighbors in our beautifully decorated clubhouse. What a great way to welcome in 2013. Note, just in case the Mayans are right, disregard plans for the New Years Eve party.Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature a special person or couple who have an interesting past; a promising future; or who have made a significant contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. This week we feature the newest member of our maintenance crew, Justin Sanford. The youngest of three boys, Justin has two older brothers; Jeremy and Troy. His mom, Joy and his father, David, are both school teachers so at least one of his parents were teaching at every school that Justin attended from kindergarten through high school. When asked how that worked for him he smiled and said, It was interesting, adding that, they were pretty cool about it. It was obvious that, unlike it would be for many of us, having a parent around all the time was not too traumatic on the young man. Throughout his high school years at Tavares High School, Justin was very active in sports playing varsity football; soccer and running cross country. Soccer was his favorite sport and this athletic ability would serve him well in his future. While being involved in these many sports he joined the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. His faith would also play a major role in his life. Just under six months after his graduation from Tavares High School, Justin enlisted in the United States Marines. Like many of his fellow Marines, his first stop was Parris Island, South Carolina, for basic training. Following that, he was stationed at Camp Johnson, North Carolina, for training in vehicle mechanics. With his basic and advanced individual training complete, Justin was assigned to Camp Pendleton, California, in the 17th Combat Logistics Regiment. He was drafted for the All Marine Soccer Team at Pendleton where he was able to utilize his high school sports ability against the Navy and other teams. From there he began a long and arduous 14-month service tour at Al Taqaddum, Western Iraq. More than driving and working on motor vehicles, Justin served on convoy duty; combat patrols; worked on Marine infantry training as part of the transition team and was a part of the personal protection team for dignitaries visiting in country. Part of his duties was training the Iraqis to defend themselves and their own country against insurgents and outside guerillas. This assignment was extremely hazardous and Justin admits that there was a lack of trust among the allies and the Iraqi soldiers. Often before a combat patrol we would see the Iraqis on their cell phones and wed always wonder if they were tipping off the enemy as to our plans. After being awarded the National Defense Service Medal; Iraq Campaign Medal; Iraq Combat Medal and Good Conduct Medal among other awards and citations, Justin returned to the United States. Three months later, he was discharged and on his way home to Florida. During one of his leaves, Justin went to Daytona Beach. It was there that met a young lady named Jessica who was visiting from Aiken, South Carolina. Love was born and grew. In spite of the hardships, the two kept their relationship vibrant, fun and enthusiastic. When Justin came home to Florida, Jessica joined him, leaving her family restaurant business in South Carolina. They have been together over four years and share the joy of their hearts, a daughter named Pelagia. When asked about the unusual name, Justin smiled and said Its a Greek name. Jessicas family is Greek. Pelagia is two and a half years old and runs the house as well as running around the house. Taking advantage of the G.I. Bill, Justin attended Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville where he received an associate of arts degree in business administration. He accomplished this while still serving in the Marine Corps Reserve in Orlando. Currently, he is studying physical therapy through the University of Phoenix. Jessica has not shied away from hard work or education either. She works at Dockside Daves in Leesburg and is enrolled in Rasmussen College to study being a paralegal. Both Jessica and Justin share a commitment to giving their darling daughter the best possible future. We want her to have a good home; good schools and to be happy. Justin told me. Moving from Leesburg to Ocala just one month ago, Justin and Jessica have been very busy. One of the things they have had to do is look for a new church. Strongly rooted in their faith, Justin and Jessica want to give their daughter a firm Christian foundation as well in a loving home environment. They are currently looking for a church that will fit their needs. For the past seven months Justin has been the junior member of the Cherrywood maintenance team doing all of the varied tasks that go into keeping our clubhouse and our grounds in top notch condition. This includes the upkeep of the pool and hot tub; maintaining the various tennis courts, Bocce courts and other sports activity venues; keeping the lighting working and making sure all of the outside facilities are kept up to standard. The lawns and shrubs also fall with in his manyFriday, November 16, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, November 16, 2012 www.smcitizen.com CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 Justin Sanford is featured in this weeks Spotlight on Excellence.

BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comNews from a very busy OTOW club, a relatively new club, and exciting upcoming entertainment mark this weeks OTOW Happenings.Lions ClubEach year our nation honors its veterans, and the OTOW Lions Club, by tradition, provides the memorial event within On Top of the World to honor those who have served our nation so valiantly. This year was no exception, and on Nov. 11, at 2 p.m., the Veterans Day Ceremony was held at the Arbor Club. Lion Richard Spahn welcomed guests and attendees, and Chaplain Robert Benson gave both the invocation and the benediction. Lion President Ralph Mills was introduced, and he, in turn, introduced honored guests and fellow Lions. Lion Richard Spahn read a beautiful Veterans Day Remembrance recitation. The Colors were presented by the West Port High School R.O.R.C., followed by the Pledge of Allegiance, led by Lion Ralph Mills, and the singing of the National Anthem. The OTOW Concert Chorus then sang a medley of patriotic songs. The theme songs of each branch of service were played, and veterans in attendance stood as the song of their particular branch was played. Special recognition was given to veterans of World War II and Korea present as honored guests. Mr. Kenneth Colen presented the Memorial Wreath, and the audience bowed their heads as Taps was played. Following the retirement of the colors, three of the Lions Club members lead the audience in the singing of God Bless America, which was followed by the benediction. The Club wishes to express appreciation to Mr. Kenneth Colen, the sound crew, West Port High School Honor Guard, Chaplain Robert Benson, and the OTOW Concert Chorus for making this a successful event in honoring our nations veterans. The OTOW Club is wellknown for its continued offering of diabetes screenings. Members who wish to become screeners must first undergo training for certification, and those already trained must periodically go through a recertification training program. On October 27, 2012, club members, in addition to other Lions Club members in Ocala, attended the training program, a full day happening (9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.). New club member Charlie Hassett earned initial certification, and Carol DeYoung, Steve Snowman, and Marty Schley were re-certified. Club members wish to thank everyone who participated in this event to benefit precious children in need. As most of you recall, each year the Lions Club puts on a very popular annual fashion show. Another fashion show is planned, but with a unique twist! The models will be wearing fashions that are made of recyclable materials! The OTOW Lions Club first recycled trashy fashion show is scheduled for April 12, 2013. Club members will not be the models; instead, members of the communitys other clubs (and not just OTOW clubs) and organizations will create and model their own trashy outfits and will be competing against each other for one of three cash prizes: $1,000, $500, and $300. The money will be donated to the charity of the winners choice. Details in regards to what materials may be used in these trashy outfits, submission procedures, etc. should be available to you by mid-December. Does YOUR club or organization have what it takes to win this exciting contest? Look for further information in this newspaper and in the weekly South Marion Citizens column, OTOW Happenings. You may also contact PDG Lion Estelle Clark at pdgestelle@yahoo.com (352-861-7358) or me at ejh2025@gmail.com at any time.The Democrat Party ClubThe relatively new On Top of the World Democratic Club held a very successful on Thursday, Oct. 25. J. R. Gaillot, the Democratic candidate for Congress, and Jessica Hadley, the Democratic candidate for County Commissioner, addressed the Club, expressing their plans to serve the people if elected. The Club meets on the fourth Thursday of every month at 6 p.m. in Rooms E & F of the Arbor Conference Center. However, because of the Thanksgiving Holiday, the club will meet at the same time and location on Nov. 29. The topic for discussion will focus on the Affordable Health Care Act. For more information, visit On Top of the World Democratic Club on Facebook or phone 352 509-4942. The club would like to send out a special Thank you to Nancy Archer for her contribution of flag bunting for our Veterans Day celebration. Songbirds PianistOur vocal group, the Songbirds, is still in need of a pianist. Their first engagement at the clubhouse is for our Christmas Tree Trimming Party so its approaching fast. If you can play the piano and have some time to share your talent and expertise with an experienced group of singers then contact director Linda Sisto at 509-7245. Youll not only meet and work with some very special people; youll travel around locally to various venues making the day a little brighter for some inneed persons. Youll have fun too because Linda and our singers, along with having a good ear, also have a good sense of humor. Oil Painting ClassHave you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to paint a picture and have someone else actually recognize what it is? Have you ever tried painting as an outlet of your creative skills? Have you ever wanted to help a child at Christmas? Well if you answered yes to any of these questions, or if you have any other motivation for wanting to learn how to paint, we have an excellent opportunity for you. On Nov. 30, the very talented and accomplished teacher, Debbie Blackburn, is holding a class for all aspiring artists in our clubhouse. Not only will you receive Debbies expertise but you will also be given an 8x10 canvas, paints and brushes. All you will need to bring with you is some paper towels. Debbie teaches the Bob Ross painting technique and you will be pleasantly surprised how quickly you can learn to transform your artistic desires into artistic reality. The two-hour class is only $15 and Debbie has offered to donate this money to the Angel Tree fund for our needy children at Christmas. Classes are limited in size so call Geri as soon as you can to make your reservation for this professional instruction. Let the hidden artist in you come out with this special opportunity.Upcoming EventsAs many of you know, the Mayan Calendar runs out on Dec. 21 of this year. Some people have interpreted this to mean the end of the world will be on that date or as they have come to term it, The end of time. Well, Cherrywood is planning to have an End of Time party on the 21st to celebrate this event in style. The details are just now being worked out so youll have to watch next weeks Citizen for the times and any cost that might be involved. It promises to be a party like no other so reserve that date in your non-Mayan calendar. Also, New Years Eve is coming. Thats the annual blow out get together for all of the Cherrywood Community. There will be music; food; champagne and party favors for all who attend. Tickets are just $10 per person so make plans to ring in the New Year with friends and neighbors in our beautifully decorated clubhouse. What a great way to welcome in 2013. Note, just in case the Mayans are right, disregard plans for the New Years Eve party.Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature a special person or couple who have an interesting past; a promising future; or who have made a significant contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. This week we feature the newest member of our maintenance crew, Justin Sanford. The youngest of three boys, Justin has two older brothers; Jeremy and Troy. His mom, Joy and his father, David, are both school teachers so at least one of his parents were teaching at every school that Justin attended from kindergarten through high school. When asked how that worked for him he smiled and said, It was interesting, adding that, they were pretty cool about it. It was obvious that, unlike it would be for many of us, having a parent around all the time was not too traumatic on the young man. Throughout his high school years at Tavares High School, Justin was very active in sports playing varsity football; soccer and running cross country. Soccer was his favorite sport and this athletic ability would serve him well in his future. While being involved in these many sports he joined the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. His faith would also play a major role in his life. Just under six months after his graduation from Tavares High School, Justin enlisted in the United States Marines. Like many of his fellow Marines, his first stop was Parris Island, South Carolina, for basic training. Following that, he was stationed at Camp Johnson, North Carolina, for training in vehicle mechanics. With his basic and advanced individual training complete, Justin was assigned to Camp Pendleton, California, in the 17th Combat Logistics Regiment. He was drafted for the All Marine Soccer Team at Pendleton where he was able to utilize his high school sports ability against the Navy and other teams. From there he began a long and arduous 14-month service tour at Al Taqaddum, Western Iraq. More than driving and working on motor vehicles, Justin served on convoy duty; combat patrols; worked on Marine infantry training as part of the transition team and was a part of the personal protection team for dignitaries visiting in country. Part of his duties was training the Iraqis to defend themselves and their own country against insurgents and outside guerillas. This assignment was extremely hazardous and Justin admits that there was a lack of trust among the allies and the Iraqi soldiers. Often before a combat patrol we would see the Iraqis on their cell phones and wed always wonder if they were tipping off the enemy as to our plans. After being awarded the National Defense Service Medal; Iraq Campaign Medal; Iraq Combat Medal and Good Conduct Medal among other awards and citations, Justin returned to the United States. Three months later, he was discharged and on his way home to Florida. During one of his leaves, Justin went to Daytona Beach. It was there that met a young lady named Jessica who was visiting from Aiken, South Carolina. Love was born and grew. In spite of the hardships, the two kept their relationship vibrant, fun and enthusiastic. When Justin came home to Florida, Jessica joined him, leaving her family restaurant business in South Carolina. They have been together over four years and share the joy of their hearts, a daughter named Pelagia. When asked about the unusual name, Justin smiled and said Its a Greek name. Jessicas family is Greek. Pelagia is two and a half years old and runs the house as well as running around the house. Taking advantage of the G.I. Bill, Justin attended Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville where he received an associate of arts degree in business administration. He accomplished this while still serving in the Marine Corps Reserve in Orlando. Currently, he is studying physical therapy through the University of Phoenix. Jessica has not shied away from hard work or education either. She works at Dockside Daves in Leesburg and is enrolled in Rasmussen College to study being a paralegal. Both Jessica and Justin share a commitment to giving their darling daughter the best possible future. We want her to have a good home; good schools and to be happy. Justin told me. Moving from Leesburg to Ocala just one month ago, Justin and Jessica have been very busy. One of the things they have had to do is look for a new church. Strongly rooted in their faith, Justin and Jessica want to give their daughter a firm Christian foundation as well in a loving home environment. They are currently looking for a church that will fit their needs. For the past seven months Justin has been the junior member of the Cherrywood maintenance team doing all of the varied tasks that go into keeping our clubhouse and our grounds in top notch condition. This includes the upkeep of the pool and hot tub; maintaining the various tennis courts, Bocce courts and other sports activity venues; keeping the lighting working and making sure all of the outside facilities are kept up to standard. The lawns and shrubs also fall with in his manyFriday, November 16, 2012 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, November 16, 2012 www.smcitizen.com CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 Justin Sanford is featured in this weeks Spotlight on Excellence.

Dont miss out on this opportunity to make new friends and catch up with old friends over a delicious meal.Angel TreeTheres a Christmas tree in the clubhouse with cards that have the names of needy children. We would ask you to take one of these cards and make it a special Christmas for one of these youngsters. You have until Dec. 12 to purchase some things that will brighten their holidays and let them know that Santa cares. Dont let any of our kids go without getting something under their tree on Christmas Day.Trim-a-tree PartyThe tradition lives on as all the residents of Cherrywood come to the clubhouse on Sunday, Dec. 2, from 6 until approximately 9 p.m. Each resident has an ornament that they brought in on their first Christmas at Cherrywood. The decoration has the name of each resident and date that they moved in. Then, each year, the decorations are pulled out and hung on our Christmas tree. This is a great tradition when everyone gathers to share the refreshments and libations theyve brought and enjoy the Christmas spirit with each other. For those of you who are new to our community bring a bulb with your name and the date you moved in and then join this joyous tradition.

The evening is free and is directed by our own Dick Richards. If youve never been to an Accordion Club event, youve missed a special treat so dont miss this one. If you play an instrument, youre welcome to bring it of course and join in but if you just appreciate good music, come early to get a good seat and then just sit back and enjoy.Biloxi getawayHow about a four-day, three-night trip filled with excitement and gaming pleasure at one of Biloxis best casinos?

Start the New Year off right enjoying the shows; feasting on the delicious meals; gaming in the large clean casinos and being with friends. Oh, and did I mention that you do not have to be a Cherrywood resident to enjoy this trip?NASCAR SpecialNext Sunday, Nov. 18, racing fans will gather at the clubhouse beginning at 1 p.m. to watch NASCAR on the big screen TV. The race begins at 2 p.m. but youll want to get there early to get good seats. This event is free to all residents and their friends and you are encouraged to bring food; snacks and your favorite beverages to enhance your viewing pleasure. NASCAR is the most popular spectator sport in the country so we expect a large turn out for this first time event. If all of our racing enthusiasts show up, this will become a regular highlight of the season for our residents. Karaoke NightWhat a time everyone had at Karaoke Night this past Friday. It was the first such event for Cherrywood and the 50 or more attendees enjoyed every minute of it. This will undoubtedly become a regular part of the Cherrywood social scene in the months and years to come. Along with the singing of some very talented residents (and some not so much) there was also line dancing; slow dancing; fast dancing and sing-along. Bill Lavertue and Rich Becotte teamed up to make the clubhouse ring with a wide variety of songs that brought back old memories and created new ones for all who were there. Its amazing the amount of talent that our residents have and are willing to share. Not everyone was a star but all were received with applause; affection and good natured kidding. One thing for sure, everyone who got up to sing had courage and had a good time too. Watch your Citizen newspaper and Chirp for the next Karaoke Night and plan to come out for a funny and surprisingly good time. Cribbage PlayersOur Cherrywood Cribbage Club is still looking for new players to join them on Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. in the card room. Novice or accomplished player, everyone is welcome. Lessons will be given to those who are new to the game or who just want to learn to play so for a challenging and fun game try cribbage and for a good time with good people, come to the Cribbage Club.Veterans Club On Thursday, Dec. 6, the Veterans Club will hold its last meeting for the year at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse. Everyone is invited and urged to come out and see what your Cherrywood veterans are doing. Over the past few weeks, our organization has been especially blessed by the benevolence of an anonymous donor. This gentleman has given money specifically designated to our service men and women who are overseas and to the Ritz House of Ocala. In addition, he purchased refrigerators for the residents of Ritz House making their lives much more comfortable. We are extremely grateful for this individuals commitment to veterans and for his extraordinary support to us. At our meeting we will be discussing and voting on the disbursement of our other charitable funds as well as talking about next years events and activities. If you would like to see your Veterans Club at work, this is a great opportunity. Refreshments are served on the patio following the meeting so come out; share your thoughts and ideas and then socialize with friends and neighbors.Friday, November 16, 2012 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, November 16, 2012 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVER TISING Read the classifieds CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 SEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 The Entertainment GroupOn Saturday, Nov. 24, The Entertainment Group along with Deluca Toyota, presents Maestros Unleashed, a dynamic duo who will perform Pizzazz American Style.

More than 70 people stood at attention and spontaneously began singing as the strains of our National Anthem sounded. Veterans Club President Bill Mahar then introduced the guest speaker, Col. Thomas Currie Jr. Bill and his wife Ida had been Toms sponsor during his time at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado. As the colonel stepped up to the microphone and began speaking the sunlight caught his uniform full of the awards and the medals he has received during his more than 20 years of service. It was apparent to all that he knew first-hand the perils of combat and the sacrifices of service. In his brief but moving address, he spoke of the cost of freedom. He thanked those who have served in all of our wars from World War II through and including the current war on terror. When he was finishing his talk in which he mentioned the Korean War veterans; Vietnam veterans and even the Cold War veterans, he read a poem titled, Freedom isnt Free. Loud applause and warm handshakes greeted him when he was done. A salute to the services followed with all of the service songs being played. Each service flag was trooped as the melodies sounded. In addition to the Army; Marines; Navy; Air Force and Coast Guard, for the first time, the Merchant Marine was recognized. The Veterans Club lost five of its members this past year. In memory of those who passed away, Rich and Ruth Hurley presented a rose to each widow. The crowd was hushed in quiet respect as each recipient came forward and took the red bloom. A moment of silence was broken only by the quiet tears of those who had lost loved ones. As if on cue, snapping to attention, the veterans brought their hands up in a sharp and smart salute. Then the mournful strains of Taps began echoing across the hushed crowd. When the last note faded in the distance, the Color Guard came to life. In a precision move, the 10-member group began retiring the colors. In the process, they passed in review before the dignitaries and visitors assembled in front of the clubhouse. The service was concluded. Following the ceremony, everyone went inside the clubhouse to meet with and congratulate Col. Currie and his family. Together we all enjoyed a good old American style picnic of hot dogs and hamburgers; potato salad and beans. Desserts were baked by our ladies and our volunteers grilled and prepared all the food. A small army of volunteers made this Veterans Day a smashing success and to name them all would take the better part of this newspaper. Suffice it to say that without all of our dedicated people, we would not have had a Veterans Day celebration. We thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts. Trivia Night ReturnsCome out to Trivia Night for some great brain-teasing fun and friendly competition as Fred OHern poses questions to the various teams.

THE RACKETEER By John Grisham Hes back!the John Grisham who enthralled us with The Firm and The Client and The Pelican Brief. And this wayward fan couldnt be happier. After disappointing us with some recent lackluster novels, Grisham is once again his vintage self in The Racketeer, a thriller peppered with intrigue, deceit, and revenge. The book begins with the murder of a federal judge at the lakeside vacation home he built himself. Mal Bannister, an unfairly incarcerated lawyer on racketeering charges for picking the wrong client to represent, reflects on the news: Given the importance of what they do and the controversies that surround them and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. The plot is simple until its not. Bannister has spent five years in jail and has another five ahead of him. He tells us: I am a lawyer, and I am in prison. Its a long story. Im fortythree years old and halfway through a ten-year sentence handed down by a weak and sanctimonious federal judge in Washington, D.C. All of my appeals have run their course, and there is no procedure, mechanism, obscure statute, technicality, or Hail Mary left in my depleted arsenal. But he has an ace up his sleeve. He knows who the judges killer is and will trade that information to the FBI for his freedom. Of course, had it been that simple wed have a very short novel. The real fun begins twothirds of the way through the book when the author presents us with a complicated twist. Here, Bannister a likeable central character we naturally root for, begins dazzling us with his endruns around the powersthat-be. Caveat: Dont try to skim this one. It demands close attention. There may be a few too many deus ex machina moments requiring suspension of disbelief but thats a small matter. This is an actionpacked, pageturning, and completely satisfying read with plenty of legal tidbits like rule 35 thrown in for good measure. Grisham makes a comeback after lackluster novels BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington Read the classifieds OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 Upcoming Events at VFW Post 4781All Dinners Are Open To The Public In The Dining Hall:Saturday Breakfast is served from 8 to 10 a.m. Donation is $4.

E The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: Is it true that cutting and burning trees adds more global warming pollution to the atmosphere than all the cars and trucks in the world combined? -Mitchell Vale, Houston, TX By most accounts, deforestation in tropical rainforests adds more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere than the sum total of cars and trucks on the worlds roads. According to the World Carfree Network (WCN), cars and trucks account for about 14 percent of global carbon emissions, while most analysts attribute upwards of 15 percent to deforestation. The reason that logging is so bad for the climate is that when trees are felled they release the carbon they are storing into the atmosphere, where it mingles with greenhouse gases from other sources and contributes to global warming accordingly. The upshot is that we should be doing as much to prevent deforestation as we are to increase fuel efficiency and reduce automobile usage. According to the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), a leading green group, 32 million acres of tropical rainforest were cut down each year between 2000 and 2009and the pace of deforestation is only increasing. Unless we change the present system that rewards forest destruction, forest clearing will put another 200 billion tons of carbon into the atmosphere in coming decades, says EDF. Any realistic plan to reduce global warming pollution sufficientlyand in timeto avoid dangerous consequences must rely in part on preserving tropical forests, reports EDF. But its hard to convince the poor residents of the Amazon basin and other tropical regions of the world to stop cutting down trees when the forests are still worth more dead than alive. Conservation costs money, while profits from timber, charcoal, pasture and cropland drive people to cut down forests, adds EDF. Exacerbating global warming isnt the only negative impact of tropical deforestation. It also wipes out biodiversity: More than half of the worlds plant and animal species live in tropical rainforests. One way some tropical countries are reducing deforestation is through participation in the United Nations Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) program. REDD essentially works to establish incentives for the people who care for the forest to manage it sustainably while still being able to benefit economically. Examples include using less land (and therefore cutting fewer trees) for activities such as coffee growing and meat and milk production. Participating nations can then accrue and sell carbon pollution credits when they can prove they have lowered deforestation below a baseline. The REDD program has channeled over $117 million in direct financial aid and educational support into national deforestation reduction efforts in 44 developing countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America since its 2008 inception. Brazil is among the countries embracing REDD among other efforts to reduce carbon emissions. Thanks to the program, Brazil has slowed deforestation within its borders by 40 percent since 2008 and is on track to achieve an 80 percent reduction by 2020. Environmentalists are optimistic that the initial success of REDD in Brazil bodes well for reducing deforestation in other parts of the tropics as well.

Which if any well known manufacturers are embracing it? -Karin Romano, Bristol, CT Bluesign is an emerging standard for environmental health and safety in the manufacturing of textiles. The Switzerland-based organization, officially known as Bluesign Technologies AG, provides independent auditing of textile mills, examining manufacturing processes from raw materials and energy inputs to water and air emissions outputs. Each component is assessed based on its ecotoxicological impact. Bluesign ranks its audit findings in order of concern, and suggests ways to reduce consumption while recommending alternatives to harmful chemicals or processes where applicable. Textile mills that commit to verifiably adopting Bluesigns recommendations can become certified System Partners and attract business from a wide range of brands and retailers around the world looking for greener vendors. Eco-aware consumers can feel confident purchasing clothing items with the Bluesign label that they are buying the most environmentally friendly, socially conscious version of the jacket, shirt, sweater, pants, hat or gloves in question. Given the push for greener products of every kind, Bluesign has gained serious traction in the last few years among some of the leading brands in the outdoor clothing and gear business. Patagonia was Bluesigns first brand member and has been supportive of the program since its inception in 2000. While only 16 percent of the products in its 2012 line contain Bluesign-approved fabrics, the company has set a goal with its suppliers to have all Patagonia fabrics adhere to the standard by 2015. The North Face is a newer partner for Bluesign, but no less committed: The company has been going gangbusters for the standard since 2010, and offers several clothing items made with at least 90 percent Bluesign-approved fabrics. Over the two years it has been converting its supply chain over to Bluesign-approved vendors, The North Face has saved 85 Olympic swimming pools worth of water, 38 tanker trucks worth of chemicals, and carbon emissions similar to taking some 1,100 cars off the road for a year. Another leading outdoor clothing manufacturer embracing Bluesign is Norways Helly Hansen. In its 2012 line, more than 100 of Helly Hansens 500 products contain fabrics that meet the Bluesign standard; that number is expected to increase by 50 percent in 2013. Helly Hansen would go fully Bluesign except that some of its specialty products that need to be flame retardant do not meet the standard. The company is optimistic, however, that textile makers can solve that problemand then it can offer a 100 percent Bluesign-approved product line. Some of the other big outdoor brands that have teamed up with Bluesign include REI and Canadas Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC). Whether Bluesign catches on more widely in this dog-eat-dog, economically stressed business climate remains to be seen. Earning Bluesign approval costs mills and suppliers time and money, reports MEC. They have to be convinced theyll get a return on their investment in the form of increased demand for their products from manufacturers like MEC and ultimately from consumers.

Fall decorations are half-price and you can get good buys on coats and hats. The air is clear and comfortable and the nights are cool. Yes, it is fall in Florida and not a Thanksgiving decoration can be found. Oh, there are lots of Christmas things out with Santas practically grabbing your arm and magically saying, buy me, buy anything, just get Christmas going! But before this shopping frenzy gets under way, in true Jewish fashion, Id like remind us all of the importance of Thanksgiving. First of all, no matter what religion you follow, it is good to give thanks unto the Lord. The Psalmists words still ring true. We can thank the Creator for our lives, health, family, the flowering hibiscus bush, anything we wish. And when we all think about it, it is those priceless things that are the most valuable, the love of our family and friends, the smile on our grandchildrens faces, and the pride we have in our children. We need Thanksgiving to remember these things, a day set aside so that we do not take these things for granted. Thanksgiving gives us a perfect opportunity for sharing. While many of us regularly give to a local food bank, this holiday allows us to do more, enabling others to share in a special meal that might not be available on a regular basis. The simple act of sharing sensitizes us to the need of others. In our congregation, at the Shabbat service, we bless the challah, Sabbath bread, and then offer pieces to each other. A rabbi friend of mine says: feed another and you feed the world. This simple caring act, teaches us all that to repair our fractured world, we need to start with one person and watch how the kindness grows. In our American tradition, Thanksgiving recalls the early history of this country. It saddens me when this aspect of the holiday gets ignored. The people of the Mayflower came to this country to worship in their own particular way. Others followed in the path blazed by the Pilgrims. And when in 1654, a group of Jews landed in Why we still need Thanksgiving JUDIS JOURNAL J SJudi Siegal what is now New York City, they too, were looking for a religious haven. And while there were struggles along the way, the American Experience embraced religious freedom leading to the myriad faiths that exist today in this country. We need only to look at the community interfaith Thanksgiving celebrations to see that at least one time a year we all can get together as a human community and say thanks. Thanksgiving affords us the time to spend with family and friends. There is nothing like sharing a meal to bring a family together. Whether it is moms apple pie, Aunt Sarahs green bean casserole or Sandys fabulous stuffing, we all look forward to this special meal with its seasonal treats. While many of us are so busy with work and other responsibilities, it is good to have a day to sit around the table, discuss politics, and give kudos to the cook. And while the men are watching football, the women are cleaning up and the teens are texting their friends, there is still that closeness that only a holiday can bring. There is one more reason we still need Thanksgiving and it is purely gastronomical. Thanksgiving is a perfect excuse for pumpkin pie. May we all have a wonderful holiday filled with love and sharing bringing us closer to a world at peace. Happy Thanksgiving!

Friday, November 16, 2012 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, November 16, 2012 www.smcitizen.com Those in charge are making Florida the laughing stock of America and yes even the world where third world countries are laughing at us for calling our elections legitimate. How many businesses from America or from anywhere in the world will want to locate companies in Florida if we cant even run a statewide election in an honest and forthright manor. After each election we are being told that unanticipated problems show up, such as too many voters, too many amendments, not enough voting locations, somebody unplugged the voting machines and no one could find an outlet (joke), those in Tallahassee believed that more of us could vote in fewer locations and in fewer voting days, shortened voting hours, history doesnt count and lastly, no one will remember these problems during the next election period. Governor Scott can be proud and still hold his head high when stating those dozen or so illegal voters were stopped in their tracks because of his valiant efforts. Jerry Segovis OcalaIf I were the devilAll seniors should remember Paul Harvey, but if you do or dont, please go on line to http://stg.do/9LDc to hear his prediction made on ABC April 3, l965, it only lasts 3 minutes. Regardless of your political persuasion, you will be able to confirm what a wise man Harvey was and how his If I were the devil is playing out in America today. It is scary so Satan must truly be smiling! The very principles that made us the greatest country in the world are no longer the backbone of our nation. We are now a nation who is openly turning away from God and we will pay the price for doing so. We have made our bed, now we will have to live with it. We have invited God to remove his blessings from America and he may just do that Dont be shocked to see us hit with more natural disasters than ever before as God has no choice but to bring us back to our knees, one way or the other. Get familiar with biblical history, for as then, He is still in charge! I pray I am wrong regarding the above, join me in this prayer. Wayne Rackley Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Now that we have gotten past the recent elections, we can get back to life as normal. Of course, I am not sure what normal really means. One mans normal is another mans over the cliff. I am not quite sure I am normal and I fear bringing this query to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. My fear is that she will tell me the truth. You know what we Americans think about the truth. There was a time when truth was a pretty stable thing. There were certain things that were absolute truth and no ifs, ands or buts about it. Those were the good old days. Nowadays truth is not as clear as it once was. What was true in the day, is now altogether a different matter. Being the simpleminded man that I am, it is very hard for me to keep up with all of this nonsense. I mean, after all, how do you know what is true if it changes all the time? I think if it is true, it is always true. That only beguiles my age. If truth is as slippery as some people are indicating, how do I know what is true today? It does not matter what was true yesterday. That was yesterday. Today is a new day and henceforth, what was true yesterday is not true today. To make matters even more confusing, what is true today will not be true tomorrow. I believe the reason I am getting bald is that I am scratching my head too much lately. I cannot seem to make heads or tails out of all the nonsense transpiring today as truth. How do people keep up and Thou pollest too much, methinks OUT TO PASTOR J SRev. James L. Snyder know what is really true? If I plan to live quite a few more years, I am going to have to get a handle on this very thing. I am not quite sure where to go. Something has to be done so that I can figure out day by day what is really true. I shared my dilemma with my better half and as is usually the situation, she came up with a brilliant answer. Please, do not let her know I said that. She might get a big head and we cannot afford to buy a whole new set of hats. She simply said, Why dont you do what the politicians do? I did not quite know what she was getting at, so I inquired further. Silly, her pet name for Yours Truly, the politicians always take a poll before they decide on anything. It dawned on me like a morning in June. Of course. Whenever a politician wants to know what truth is flying on any given day, he reverts to taking a poll. Out of that poll, he can know what the truth is for that day. Amazing. I need to learn some lessons from todays politician. The first thing I need to understand from a politicians point of view is, What I am saying at the time is not necessarily what I mean. This is convenient and frees me up to say things I normally might put a check on. The checks in the mail and I now am free to say whatever is on my mind at the moment. The first thing I need to do is find out what is on the mind of the people I am talking to. Whatever is on their mind is exactly what is on my mind. This has such a freeing aspect to it. Another thing from a politicians viewpoint is, What I said yesterday doesnt count today. This also is from the polling machine. The amazing thing about most people is they do not remember what was said yesterday. A very poor politician reminds people of what they said yesterday. A politician needs to tell them what he is saying today. Because todays truth is todays truth. No need to worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will be reflected by tomorrows polling. This is very important because it reduces the necessity to use any sort of memory whatsoever. Because what I said yesterday does not really matter today. I do not have to remember what I said yesterday. If I want to know what I said yesterday, I need only take another poll today and that settles the matter. Perhaps the most important view from a politician is, Tomorrow may never come. I do not have to worry that what I am saying today will catch up with me tomorrow, for the simple reason tomorrow may never come. If it does come, so what. I will take a poll tomorrow to find out what I need to say tomorrow. I think there is something to this polling mechanism. I do not have to worry about anything; all I need to do is just take another poll. I know it may get a little confusing, but I clear up that confusion by taking another poll. It is always the last poll that really counts. Thankfully, when it comes to God, truth does not change from one day to the next. What is true today was true yesterday and will be true tomorrow. You can count on that. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8 KJV). I can always count on God being true to His Word because God never changes.Rev. James L.

His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com Thanksgiving is next Thursday, a day when we all should be thankful for our life, blessings, and liberty in the USA. We already know what the day will be like. Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the oven to an afternoon high near 190F. The kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a severe squall or cold shoulder. During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches on plates. Mashed potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry sauce creates slippery spots on the other. Weight watch and indigestion warnings have been issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness around the beltway. During the evening, the turkey will diminish and taper off to leftovers, dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator. Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to eat sandwiches will be established. Flurries of leftovers can be expected both days with a 50 percent chance of scattered soup late in the day. We expect a warming trend where soup develops. By early next week, eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will be the bone.A real turkeyA blonde was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but couldnt find one big enough for her family. She asked the stock boy, Do these turkeys get any bigger? The stock boy answered, No maam theyre dead. Once she got the turkey home she called the newspapers food editor for help. She asked, I bought a nine-pound turkey. Could you tell me how long to cook it in my new microwave? Just a minute, the food editor said, as he turned to check his reference book. Oh, thank you, she said, Youve been a big help. Good-bye! This blonde also wanted to make sweet potatoes, which were one of her husbands favorites. She confided in a neighbor and asked, Ive finally been able to make them sweet, she said, but how do you make them orange?Another turkeyA new young bride called her mother in tears. She sobbed, Robert doesnt appreciate what I do for him. Now, now, her mother comforted, I am sure it was all just a misunderstanding. No, mother, the young woman lamented. I bought a frozen turkey loaf and he yelled at me about the price. Well, that is being miserly, the mother agreed, Those turkey rolls are only a few dollars. No, mother it wasnt the price of the turkey roll, it was the airplane ticket. Airplane ticket? What did you need an airplane ticket for? Well mother, when I went to fix it, I looked at the directions on the back and it said, Prepare from a frozen state, so I flew to Alaska.Drum sticksShe baked the turkey for almost five days because the instructions said 1 hour per pound and she weighed 108. For Thanksgiving the Poultry Raisers of America are sending the biggest turkey in the country to the White House. The Republicans claim hes already there. When I realized I was addicted to Thanksgiving leftovers, I decided to quit cold turkey. When the guest speaker was introduced after a Thanksgiving dinner the emcee said, We have just enjoyed a turkey stuffed with sage. It is now my pleasure to introduce a sage stuffed with turkey.Trophy turkeyLittle Bruno was sitting in his grandmothers kitchen, watching her prepare the Thanksgiving meal. What are you doing? Bruno asked. Oh, Im just stuffing the turkey, his grandmother replied. Thats cool! Bruno said. Are you going to hang it next to the deer?Political killingI know a farmer who used a foolproof way of getting his turkeys ready for Thanksgiving. For the last month all he did was show the turkeys the TV presidential political debates, the candidates commercials, and the evening political news. Now they are ready to go quietly. Some have even volunteered.Good huntingThis year I had my chance to do the traditional thing of shooting my own turkey for Thanksgiving.

SECO Director of Corporate Communications, Barry Bowman, said that the electric cooperative does this annual survey to get opinions on how co-op members feel their utility is doing with regard to such things as service reliability and customer service. Bowman said, Generally speaking, SECO gets very high marks from the members during these surveys. In fact, a series of questions in the survey allows our coop to be ranked against all other types of electric utilities in the nation on the American Consumer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). Since beginning to use the ACSI to make this comparison, SECOs scores from member/customers on satisfaction are amongst the highest of any utility in the country. We are a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative. That means our focus is on delivering the most reliable, lowest cost electricity possible and best customer service we can to our members. We hope the members will take the time to answer the survey being conducted by NRECA Market Research Services on our behalf, he said. Bowman concluded by noting that the survey process is one of the numerous ways that SECO stays in close touch with its overall membership. He stated that, in a co-op, member thoughts and opinions are important and help guide co-op operations. Sumter Electric to survey customers John M.

State Road 200 1 3 / 4 Miles West of I-75 Worship Service 8:00 & 11:00 AM Bible Class & Sunday School 9:30 AM Pastor Joe Adams 237-2233 Sharing the Joy of Jesus Christ! 000D7EJ www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, November 16, 2012 Just when you think youre going to have a nice, positive, post-election column, something happens to gum up the works. I guess I can still legitimately praise George Tomyn and Dr. Diana Greene for the school superintendent campaign they ran. While all the attention was focused on the unfortunate events in the sheriffs race, which at this writing still isnt settled, Tomyn and Greene ran a quiet, seemingly positive campaign. Voters heard the qualifications from each, and didnt get the nasty, negative mailings, etc., that permeated other races. But just when you think everything was going along smoothly, Tomyn, less than 48 hours after winning the election. announced changes in his administrative staff to take effect on Nov. 26. Among those changes was the reassigning of Greene and Wally Wagoner, Tomyns primary opponent, to jobs that removed them from the deputy superintendent role that each held. Greene has become principal of Fessenden Elementary, and Wagoner, well, hes just reassigned and we dont know where. Tomyn insisted that these were just reassignments and not demotions, but come back a month from now and compare the current salaries of the pair to what they will be making then. I guess thats the people living up to the saying, To the victor belongs the spoils. Still, I cant help but think that the school system would have been better served if Greene and Wagoner had remained in their current jobs. Furthermore, it would seem to have been politically expedient for Tomyn to take the high road and keep these two people in their posts. They might have become allies, ensuring Tomyns re-election in the future. Now, I can just see the wheels turning for 2016. You can gear up right now for the school superintendent race, and you can bet that this move by Tomyn will be front and center in the debate. Hows that for having something to look forward to? Speaking of clean campaigns, there were a couple of others that went all right, too. In the race for supervisor of elections, Wes Wilcox easily outpointed Judge Cochran. Wilcox ran on his own record, choosing not to criticize Cochran, who had no experience in the elections office. The outcome was not a surprise, but neither mans reputation was tainted. Congratulations to both. And in the lone contested County Commission race, things went smoothly as Earl Arnett defeated Jessica Hadley. Both also stayed above the fray, and we even got a live phone call from Arnetts camp. Again, nice job by both. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

EDITORS NOTE: Today we yield our editorial space to Edwin Sewell, a fifth grader in Mrs. Del Valles class at Hammett Bowen Elementary. Edwin read this essay at Mondays Veterans Day event at Veterans Memorial Park in Ocala.BY EDWIN SEWELL Special to the CitizenThe reason I like Veterans Day is because my grandpa was in the Marines. He served his country so that we may have freedom. People that serve in the armed forces help keep our country safe from terrorists that try to hurt our country. Many people have died in wars and this day is for us to remember those who died for our country and honor those who are still here. The second reason I like Veterans Day is because they got to drive cool vehicles like helicopters, tanks, and aircraft. They used these types of vehicles to fight in wars and try to defeat the enemy. These people are willing to risk their lives to help save our country. They deserve a lot of respect. When they go and fight they earn medals for doing heroic things such as saving people or other soldiers. The uniforms have stripes and many medals. The third reason I like Veterans Day is because my grandpa takes me to the wall in town that has all the names of people that died in the war and we try to find some of his friends. We look over all the names and I even tried to count them a few times but it was too many. We get to meet other people there and my grandpa will talk with them and we hear their family story as well. I met this one guy who was in a wheelchair and had only one arm, he was nice and told me what happen to his legs and arm. The fourth reason I like Veterans Day is because my grandpa comes over and we barbecue and eat well. My grandpa tells us stories about what it was like in boot camp and all the different places he had been. Sometimes I see my grandpa cry for his friends he lost. My grandpa was in the Vietnam War. He has some money from other countries that he showed us and told me one day he would give it to me and my sister. My mom and dad cook a lot of food that my grandpa likes and we eat until we cant eat any more. The final reason I like Veterans Day is because we live in a country where we are free and have many choices and we would not have this if it wasnt for people like my grandpa. The people who serve their country and fight for what is right. One day when I grow up I hope that there will not be any more wars so I dont have to fight. Maybe one day all the countries can learn to get along with one another. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY What Veterans Day means to me It wasnt a demotion! Oh, really? LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY BRYAN GOLDEN Special to the Citizen Thanksgiving is much more than a big meal with family and friends. Its a time to reflect on, and be thankful for, all of the good things you have. Even with all of the uncertainty and turmoil in the world, you have so much to be thankful for. Its important to be grateful, not just on Thanksgiving, but each and every day. Rather than lamenting what you feel is lacking in your life, begin each new day by developing an attitude of gratitude. Take inventory of your blessings and you will be surprised at just how much you have to be thankful for. If you have enough to eat, a place to live, a way to get around, people who care about you, or people you care about, then you are wealthy. If you lack any of these elements, you must still be grateful for what you do have, while striving to obtain whatever is absent. Focus on all positive aspects of your life. Take nothing for granted. Every morning, recharge your appreciation. Be happy for everything there is, not upset over what you feel is missing. Dreams of the future shouldnt diminish appreciation for the present. If all you do is concentrate on what you want, you wont enjoy today. Dont be jealous of others; what they do or have has no bearing on you. You can feel bitter or resentful for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you feel something is missing from your life, things arent going your way, or you have been treated unfairly. You may wonder, Why do these things always happen to me? Lifes problems tend to dominate your thoughts, turning your focus to what you feel is wrong. You may start to resent those who appear to be better off. Youre apt to dwell on things you think would make your life better if you had them. If only you had more money, more time, a bigger house, a different car, a different job, a different boss, had picked a different career, etc. Once your attitude becomes one of deficiency instead of abundance and appreciation, you can become overwhelmed by feelings of frustration and feel like a victim. As this happens, a consuming vicious cycle starts. Being bitter or resentful blows situations out of proportion. People who are bitter frequently find that their situations deteriorate and their mental and physical health decays. Its difficult, if not impossible, to achieve your goals while you are bitter or resentful. Regardless of what challenges might befall you, bitterness makes finding solutions much more elusive. There is no point to feeling bitter since it accomplishes nothing, harms you and makes things worse. Filling yourself with gratitude on a daily basis makes you feel good, while driving out negative feelings. Begin your practice of gratitude each morning as soon as you wake. Every day is a great day. If you have any doubts, try missing one. Take inventory of everything, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, that is good in your life. If it helps, make a written list of all things you are grateful for. Read your list every day. As you do this, you will build and reinforce your attitude of gratitude. Dont waste any time with what you feel you dont have. Keep things in perspective. Consider all the people who have overcome difficulties far worse than yours. Dont be consumed by your problems, there is always a solution. Maintaining an attitude of gratitude allows your mind to devise a resolution for your circumstances. Make everyday a day of Thanksgiving and you will be amazed how much better your life will become.Bryan Golden is the author of Dare to Live Without Limits.

READER OPINIONS INVITED Thanksgiving: So much to be thankful for EDITORS NOTE: As has been stated the past few weeks, we will not run I told you so or sour grapes letters concerning the election. Also, remember that letter writers are now limited to one letter per month.The laughing stockWhat is it that we do to continually make Florida the laughing stock of the United States every time there is a National Election? It seems that Tallahassee is unable to allow voters from our state to take part in an efficient, accurate, well run election. Our latest debacle from our Republican governor Scott is just the latest example of partisan politics where Democrats, independents, blacks and Hispanics are being dissuaded from voting. This latest election held on Nov. 6 is proof positive that those officials in Tallahassee are not looking for fair elections where every vote counts.

In addition, both he and his partner Fred have to work closely with our committees and many clubs to make sure their functions go off smoothly. I love the work, especially outdoors. Ive never been one to sit in an office. Justin intimates. He has the perfect job for that, it would seem. Always greeting people with a friendly smile and good sense of humor, Justin enjoys the people as well as the work here at Cherrywood. He states that everyone here has always treated him well and made him feel right at home. When you see Justin, be sure to thank him for his hard work and thank him also for his service to our country. It is refreshing to see a young person with a deep commitment to his family; his country and to this community. Indeed Justin has an interesting past; a very bright future and he is an asset to our quality of life here at Cherrywood. From Your ReporterThis past week I had the high honor of taking part in our Veterans Day service. I thank the following individuals on the Board of the Cherrywood Veterans Club who made it possible; Bill Mahar, president; Richard Hurley, treasurer; Ruth Hurley, secretary and Marty Duesel, trustee. Lastly, and most important, I thank the veterans. Do you have an idea or suggestions on articles you would like to see in the Cherrywood Section of the Citizen?

County Extension ServiceIts funny how tough times have a way of bringing out the clever in each of us. Given a nudge, we surprise ourselves at how resourceful we can really be. This holiday season, decide to do it your way, not the advertisers way. Make your own set of rules. Seize these economic times to create a new normal for your holidays. Read on for ideas. Consider giving gifts to children only. Its hard to convince a child that opening a present is not the best part of the gift experience. Adults, though, are able to see a bigger picture. Gift certificates are gifts from the heart. With a little creativity, you can save your wallet from being malled during the holiday season. Remember, the goal of gift-giving should be to give pleasure to the person receiving it. With the recipient in mind, consider giving gift certificates for errands, chores or favors. Some gift certificate ideas: grocery shopping, babysitting, cooking, baking, mowing the lawn, pulling weeds, ironing, recording music, washing a car, cleaning a home or garage or putting photos in albums. Pass it on. We all lead busy lives. The gift of time is invaluable. Do you have a special interest or talent? How about offering a lesson on guitar playing, cake decorating, painting, oil/tire changing, knitting, fishing, bread making, wood working, candy making or target practice? Re-gifting is the talk of the town, and thats not a bad thing. Sometimes, the story that goes along with the gift may just outdo the gift. Consider giving the last great book you bought with a note about what the book meant to you. Or, create a journal of a vacation and include pictures and a map of the destination. If you must spend money, consider unique gifts you can purchase for under $20. Consider giving smartphone apps, a rare coin, gas cards, unusual candy or a piggy bank partially full of change. Gift basket ideas Small gift baskets, done right, are eye candy. Let your imagine fly. Pick a theme and go to town. Beverages: Cocoa or tea kit. Honey: Jar of local honey, honey dipper and package of gourmet crackers. Cheese: Cheese and cheese knife specifically for slicing that type of cheese. Correspondence: Homemade notes or greeting cards, stamps, pen. Gardening: Gloves, seeds from your garden, a small hand-painted flower pot. Fishing: Lures, hooks and line. Cooking: A favorite recipe with a sampling of the delectable dish or treat. Remember, its not the gift; its the thought that counts. Put a new holiday gift-giving philosophy into practice this year and make it your new holiday normal. Imagine how fun it can be dreaming up the next great creative gift!

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Instead of fretting over a cutting remark by a co-worker, chalk it up to an outburst of envy of your well-respected status among both your colleagues and superiors.

Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com The City of Crystal River and the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce invite you to submit an application for the 26th annual Manatee Festival, Jan. 19-20, in downtown Crystal River. This festival has a long-standing tradition of fine artists displaying their artwork in a juried environment. January is traditionally the start of the outdoor festival route, and last year the Manatee Festival brought in more than 15,000 visitors during the two day period. A few vendor spaces are still available for this renowned fine art festival, therefore apply today. We are inviting those artists who have been entered in juried shows before, and wish to present their skills to the public in a well-known and well attended event. We are seeking skilled artisans who work in all media, including clay, metal, oil, wood, watercolor, gold and silver, organic materials, photography and mixed media. While artists from all over the nation are invited and do attend, we would like to extend a special welcome to local Florida artists wishing to showcase their work. This festival draws the public from all over the nation, including many winter visitors from major metropolitan areas in the north. This is a wonderful opportunity to increase name recognition, make sales, and take part in a festival that has a strong local cultural background. Come enjoy the weather and mingle with fellow artists. Make friendships and memories that last a lifetime. While you are here take the opportunity to enjoy a few moments with the creature often associated with the folklore of mermaids, the Manatee. Citrus County and Crystal River have many opportunities to enrich your knowledge of Florida history and see why we are called The Gem of Floridas Nature Coast. For those wishing to apply, simply go to www.floridamanateefestival.com and download an application, or call Jeff Inglehart at the Citrus County Chamber 352-795-3149.

HOURSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 A new voice will lead the Marion County Board of County Commissioners. On Nov. 6 at their regularly scheduled board meeting, commissioners voted to have Commissioner Kathy Bryant take the chairmans seat. Bryant is serving her first term on the Board of County Commissioners; this is her first time serving as chair. Commissioner Carl Zalak will take the vice chair seat. This is Zalaks first term on the commission and first time serving as vice chair. As chairman, Bryant will manage board meetings, public hearings and workshops. She will also establish board priorities and serve as a board ambassador at many public events. In the absence of the chair, the vice chair will assume these responsibilities. Bryant replaces former commissioner Charlie Stone as chair. During her tenure on the board, Bryant considers her involvement with consolidating public safety communications, bringing the Ocala 489 industrial park to fruition, and solving Marion Countys solid waste dilemma through purchasing air space at the Bushnell ACMS landfill to be among her top accomplishments. For her upcoming year as chair, she would like to continue to target economic development. I want to keep the board focused on economic development and make sure we continue moving our community forward, Bryant said. One of the other things I look forward to this year is hopefully putting together our solid waste authority. Ill also continue to make sure we are fiscally responsible. Citizens elected Bryant to the commission in 2010. Since joining the commission, she has served as the board liaison to the Tourist Development Council, among other local agencies. Bryant also serves on the Board of Directors for the Florida Association of Counties and serves as vice chair of that agencys health and human services policy leadership team.

Light Up Ocala, the communitys official kick off of the holiday season, is held the Saturday before Thanksgiving, Nov. 17 this year, on the Downtown Square and surrounding streets. This years event will see many changes to those of years past. With attendance levels growing each year, the event was literally busting at the seams. To accommodate the larger crowds, the city will be spreading Light up Ocala expands in area Effective Nov. 19, the Ocala Social Security office will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. a reduction of 30 minutes each weekday. In addition, beginning Jan. 2, 2013, the office will close to the public at noon every Wednesday. While agency employees will continue to work their regular hours, this shorter public window will allow them to complete face-toface interviews and process claims work without incurring the cost of overtime. The significantly reduced funding provided by Congress under the continuing resolution for the first six months of the fiscal year makes it impossible for the agency to provide the overtime needed to handle service to the public as it has done in the past. In addition, on Nov. 23, the day after Thanksgiving, all Social Security field offices will be closed to the public. As we did last year, employees working that day will focus on reducing backlogged workloads. Most Social Security services do not require a visit to a local office. Many services, including applying for retirement, disability or Social Security makes cut in afternoon office hours PLEASESEEHOURS, PAGE3 The City of Ocala is in preliminary discussions with the New York Yankees organization. The dialogue is centered on the possible relocation of the Yankees Class A Advanced affiliate minor league team currently situated in Tampa and does not include Yankees' Spring Training. Any proposal for relocation to Ocala is contingent upon approval by the Ocala City Council, Major League Baseball, Minor League Baseball and the Florida State League, states Anthony Bruno of Yankee Global Enterprises, LLC. The City is excited about the opportunity to investigate the potential immediate and collateral benefits that might be gained from its association with a prestigious professional sports franchise and is currently exercising due diligence, says Ocala Mayor Kent Guinn. Movement of this particular team is being considered as a means to bring a professional sports franchise to an underserved market with a strong fan support base. The Tampa Yankees were established in 1994. In 1996 they moved to the new George M. Steinbrenner Field, the New York Yankees' spring training facility. Since their inception they have won five league championships, in 1994, 2001, 2004, 2009, and 2010. The City of Ocala and New York Yankees anticipate release of further information concerning this proposal in the coming weeks as they each continue exploration of the issues and development of findings.
