BY MIKE ROPPEL Karen Vega from Ocala Autism Support Network (OASN) saw DClowns from On Top of the World face painting at the Sheriffs Office Halloween party and invited the group to participate in the Christmas party at College Road Baptist Church on Dec. 15. I do not know who enjoys the face painting and tattooing most, DClowns or the children of all ages from youngsters to adults. In addition to DClowns, there was a table for coloring with crayons, and a production on the stage by the Damselfly Theatre company who will doing theater workshop and production classes at the On Top of the World starting Feb. 4. More information about the classes can be obtained from the MTP office. or Kim Sandstrom at 352-875-0646. Sholom Park will be graced by the theatre company in April for a production of Charlottes Web open to the public. The date and time are not available yet but check with Kim from time to time. After lunch was served, Santa came in and went on the stage to pass out colorfully wrapped presents. The youngsters went up to sit on Santas lap and get their presents by age/grade groups. Karen and her staff really appreciate all that the sponsors did for OASN so the party was a great success for the second year. More information about DClowns can be obtained from Paula Magen at 352-873-3433 when she is not clowning around or involved with her many other activities. Boy and girl clowns are welcome to join.

Kuhn was a candidate for sheriff when allegations of misconduct with a married woman were made. Kuhn, who is also married, was alleged to have used a sheriff's vehicle during the affair. Kuhn dropped out of the race after he had won the primary. Chris Blair, who had lost to Kuhn, replaced him as the Republican candidate, and easily won the election in November. The following was the message from Dean: Based upon the findings in the Dan Kuhn Internal Affairs Report, I am reinstating to active duty Deputy Robert Youmans. As to Major David Sperring and Captain Chip Wildy, they will remain on suspension until I have had sufficient time to thoroughly consider an appropriate response to the sustained findings concerning their involvement in the Dan Kuhn matter. In the meantime, however, I am willing to consider Major Sperrings and Captain Wildys letters of resignation and early retirement in view of their length of service with the Sheriffs Office. As to Dan Kuhn, who has already resigned, it is my understanding that the State Attorneys Office has declined to file criminal charges against Dan Kuhn for the sustained findings of misconduct. Therefore, in an effort to finalize this matter, I have requested our outside accountants and our fiscal department to calculate the amount of Dan Kuhns salary, benefits and any expenses incurred by the Sheriffs Office during any documented period of time when on duty misconduct by Dan Kuhn was occurring or whenever Sheriffs Office facilities or vehicles were involved. I have further requested that such costs and expenses incurred by the Sheriffs Office be deducted from any money which may be due to Dan Kuhn, together with an additional deduction for the cost of the Internal Affairs investigation. Kuhn faces expenses, but no criminal case Just clowning around From the left, Paula Magen (Sunflower), Dotty Baird (Penny), and Katie White (Goofy) are getting ready for the youg and not so young to get a design painted on their cheek or have a removable tattoo applied by Katherine Anshewitz (not in picture). The yellow jug was full of water and a little alcohol to work with the tattoos. PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELAbove, Kartrie White (Goffy) painting the face of one of the guests.

Signup for Citizens Academy startingGet your keyboard or pen/pencil ready the opportunity to register for Marion Countys Citizens Academy is finally here. The county began accepting applications for its 2013 class Wednesday. A free 10-week program, the Citizens Academy provides an opportunity for local residents and business owners to get an inside look at county government and its operations, services and challenges. Participants will attend sessions on a different department or facet of county government each week starting in March. Sessions last approximately three hours and include presentations, tours and hands-on activities at various county locations. Citizens Academy Class of 2012 graduate Denise Azis said that the program answered a lot of questions that affect everyday life. I have a better understanding of how the essential 911 service works. I can better appreciate what the fire and rescue people do. I also understand the solid waste and utilities she said. Its also good knowing where the various sites are located, and I know that if I called any of them (county staff) with a question, they would be kind and helpful. Fellow Class of 2012 grad Rich Lambrecht noted that as a supervisor of his local community development district, he is frequently contacted by neighbors who have questions about government services and responsibilities the answers often involve Marion County government. He encourages others to take part in the program. Marion County residents or business owners ages 18 and older are eligible to attend. All participants must complete a registration form and be accepted prior to attending and go to a minimum of eight of the 10 sessions to graduate.

So many doctors misdiagnose this form of cancer so being proactive is essential. Inflammatory Breast Cancer does its malevolence by traveling through the lymph system. IBC cells block the lymph vessels in the skin of the breast therefore causing the signature redness and inflamed areas, which give the disease its name. Unlike other forms of breast cancer, this variety grows in nests or sheets instead of a confined solid tumor making detection on a mammogram unreliable for finding this form of the disease. A doctors clinical exam or biopsy or breast ultrasound are also used in diagnosis. I am making my readers aware of this insidious form of cancer because it is so often misdiagnosed. It can appear like a breast infection but if after five days of treatment with no improvement, IBC should be looked into. It can come on quickly, often overnight. By the time it is finally recognized, the disease has advanced to stage IIIB with a five-year survival rate of 40 percent. IBC is treated with chemotherapy, surgery (usually a mastectomy) and radiation. Depending on the composition of the tumor, hormonal therapy using Herceptin, may be employed. Everyone is individual and success of treatment varies with individuals. New treatments and drugs have turned breast cancer in general into a chronic disease, no longer the death sentence of 30 years ago. Still the public needs to be made aware so that lives can be saved. In the Talmud is says that whoever saves a life; it is as if they have saved a world. If I have made one person aware of this disease, I may have saved a life. Maybe even my own.

THE MIDDLESTEINS By Jami Attenberg As the clever book jacket suggests with its fries, burgers, and shakes, someone in the Middlestein family has an eating disorder and not just an ordinary one but the grand opera of eating disorders. In time we learn that retired Chicago lawyer Edie Middlestein has finally tipped the scales at 332 and her patient husband who always liked a little meat on a woman has had enough and has walked out. Diabetic and facing a second round of surgery on her legs, Edie still cant curb her appetite. Food is the one thing that never lets her down. She ate because she loved to eat. She knew she loved to eat, that her heart and soul felt full when she felt full. Meanwhile, family members go on with their lives. Husband Richards on the prowl while he still has a shot at love with a more agile partner. His search leads to humiliating, eyeopening senior citizen dating scenes. It seems that everyone has given up on Edie except her skinny daughter-in-law Rachelle whos obsessed with saving her. She stalks her through an afternoon of fast-food drivethrus, culminating in a Chinese restaurant where Edies greeted as a returning hero. This mordant comedy in which a character eats herself to death might have been simply creepy from a less talented writer. But Attenbergs dysfunctional Jewish family struggles to keep on loving each other even in their most unlovely Dysfunctional family struggles B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington moments. And although she does not defend Edies choices or make her cute and cuddly, she gives us in this character a woman who is all too real in her helplessness before lifes temptations. In contrast to the doomed matriarch there is plenty to laugh about including dope-smoking son Bennys angst about his twins upcoming bnai mitzvah involving hip-hop lessons and chocolate fountains. At the heart of the novel are every familys interactions and divergent needs. If the book jumps around a bit, author Attenberg compensates by making us care enough about her Middlesteins to keep on reading. Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Obituary Glenn D.

The Home Instead Senior Care office serving Marion County has moved to a new location, 606 S.W. 3rd Ave., Ocala. Owners of the local Home Instead Senior Care franchise, Jim and Mary Samuelson, said the move will allow their staff to better serve area families and meet the needs of a rapidly-growing senior population. The office currently employs six staff members and 70 CAREGiversSM who go into homes and, in some cases, care communities, to help seniors with their non-medical needs. More than just an office space, our new location will serve as a resource center for seniors and families in our community, Jim Samuelson said. We are planning a regular schedule of educational programs for family caregivers to help them cope with the challenges they might face while caring for an older loved one. The first educational workshop will include information about Alzheimers disease and other dementias. It will be held from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 17 at the new Home Instead Senior Care office location. Interested Business Business that serves seniors moves office participants should call to reserve 352-622-6447 to reserve a space. A recent study conducted by Home Instead Senior Care found that 86 percent of older Americans want to age in place, remaining in their homes after retiring. Home Instead Senior Care provides services to seniors wherever they might call home: private or rental residences, assisted-living facilities and care centers. The companys CAREGivers help clients maintain their independence by assisting with activities of daily living such as meal preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, running errands, medication reminders and providing companionship. Our services are designed for any living arrangement where an older adult simply needs human interaction or help with day-to-day activities, Samuelson said. Services are available from just a few hours a day up to 24 hours, seven days a week including weekends and holidays. For more information about services or the Family Caregiver Workshops, call 352-622-6447 or visit the companys website at www.homeinstead.com/612. If you are a caregiver of a loved one with Dementia or Alzheimers disease, or have been recently diagnosed with the disease, Emeritus Ocala West would like to invite you to our monthly support groups. In addition to peer support, the groups will also invite specialists in the field who can answer questions about Dementia and Alzheimers disease, its causes, how a diagnosis is made and current research, as well as coping mechanisms for caregivers. Emeritus Ocala West staff will be available to discuss our unique Join Their Journey Program. There is no cost to attend this group and everyone who is living with a friend or family member with Dementia or Alzheimers is encouraged to attend. Support groups are the second Tuesday of each month from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. or the last Thursday of every month from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Please contact Tanja Papa, Memory Care Director at 352-861-4444 for more information.

O n New Years Day many probably got up to a spouse saying, Wake up and smell the roses; the Rose Bowl Parade is on. After a night of celebrating the coming of 2013, perhaps with Four Roses, viewing a parade with its perfusion of all kinds of flowers may have been the best way to recover from a hangover. Much happened just a few days ago; read about it here. PartyingAt a New Year party we met many who churned out greetings. From a dairy farmer: Happy Moo Year! From Bugs Bunny: Hoppy New Year! From a cosmetic surgeon: Happy New Rear! From a woodsman: Happy Yew Near! From an aging flower child: Hippie New Year, man! From a game-show host: Happy Clue Year! From a sailor: Happy New Yaw! From a mechanic: Happy New Gear! From a rancher: Happy New Steer! From a jet pilot: Happy New Lear! From a cartographer: Mappy New Year! From another mechanic: Happy Lube Year! From a job counselor: Happy New Career! From an incessant talker: Happy Chew Yer Ear! From an orthopedist: Brace yourself for the New Year! From an attorney: Happy Sued Year! From a TV enthusiast: Happy Viewed Year! From a bartender: Happy Stewed Year!North Pole activitiesAfter Christmas, Santa and his reindeer got time for a rest. This gave Rudolph a chance to do something he had wanted for a long time. He made an appointment with a plastic surgeon because he was so sensitive about his long ears which were much more prominent than the ears of the other reindeer. So one week after Christmas, he let the good doctor do the reconstructive surgical procedure, and since that time, January 1 has been celebrated as New Ears Day. I think I heard that right. Poor Richards parade?A group of local homeless folks joined this years traditional parade of mimes and other performers on New Years Day in Philadelphia. They billed it as the mummers and the paupers. Tis the Season At the typical New Years Day gathering, Mom yells, Get out of my kitchen! The grown kids yell at their tiny offspring, Stop running! Youll break Grandmas furniture! Dad yells, Get out of the way! I cant see the football game on TV! The little ones yell, Its my toy! Let me play with it! Thats why this time of year is known as the Holler Day Season. Shots Do you realize that every New Years Eve 40,000 Americans go out to New Years Eve parties? These are staggering figures! Ive decided on my New Years Resolution. Beginning in March Im going to stop procrastinating. When I thought about the evils of drinking in the New Year, I gave up thinking. Last night at the bar I ordered a double. The bartender brought out a guy who looked just like me. The trouble with jogging is that the ice falls out of your glass. Gene drinks a toast on holidays, Heres to our holidays, all 365 of them! The satellite went into orbit on January 1st causing a new years revolution. Ive got great health insurance. If I get knocked on the head they pay me a lump sum. On New Years Day the caterpillar turned over a new leaf. Socialized Medicine is women at a party talking about their operations. Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account. Good intentions Once a year, the collectors of antique tents in Germany get together for a rally. This year the organizers decided to hold it in Meinz. Unfortunately, the local burghers took a dim view of so great an influx of tourists ruining their turf with tent pegs. The citizens organized themselves so thoroughly that they even had an anthem: Let Old and Quaint Tents Be Forgot and Never Brought to Meinz. Pun Alley resolutionTodays column would not be complete without some New Years resolutions. I recommend that you resolve to have more fun and laughs in the coming years. I resolve to try to help this along with Pun Alley every week.Oak Run residents Dick and Jane wish you a Happy New Year and trust that any resolution you make is not something that goes in one year and out the other.

Instead, return calls and emails, and explain why you need a zone of privacy for now. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Although your keen Bulls eyes usually can discern whats fact from whats faux, that upcoming decision will need really solid data before you can risk a commitment. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) As your confidence grows, you should be able to work toward your goals with more enthusiasm. Open your mind to suggestions. Some of them might even work for you. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Reconnecting with someone from your past stirs up that old sense of adventure. But before you do anything else, be sure to get answers to those stilllingering questions. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Some people might resent the way you plan to resolve a difficult situation. But your commitment to making tough but fair decisions soon wins you their respect and support. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Mixed signals could be causing that vexing workplace problem. Before you choose to leave the project, ask for a meeting so you can get things out in the open. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your good intentions could backfire if youre not careful with other peoples feelings. Try using persuasion, not pressure, to get others to see your side of the situation. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your dedication to finishing the task at hand is laudable. But be careful not to overdo the midnight oil bit. Take time for relaxation with someone very special. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Although your intuition will help you make some tough choices in the first half of the month, youll need more facts to back up your actions later on. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) All that hard work and research in the workplace finally pays off as you hoped it would. Ignore comments from jealous types who are out to get the Goat riled up. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) An unfair decision creates unnecessary problems. But avoid anger and move carefully as you work this out. Expect to get support from an unlikely source. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A fuzzy financial vista persists until midmonth, when things begin to clear up. Youll also gain a better perspective on how to handle those pesky personal problems. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a wonderful way of being there for those who need your help in difficult times. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

TOLL FREE 1-877-676-1403 T he fact we actually survived another year is a tribute to somebodys tenacity; I am not sure whose. I know the only thing that got me through the year was the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and boy is she graciously tenacious. I was sure everything would collapse and of course, several times I collapsed in my easy chair. It is a New Year, or so they tell us but I have my suspicions. After this latest episode with the Mayans calendar, I am not too sure what date it is or what year it is, for that matter. They certainly got everything wrong and I have my suspicions about the rest of it. How do we really know that January 1 is actually January 1? Moreover, how do we know what year it is exactly? I think somewhere along the line somebody has pulled a scam on civilization and has messed up our calendars. If the Mayans got it wrong, maybe we have it wrong also. Whatever day and whatever year it is I am going to celebrate the New Year. If I am wrong, I have a lot of company. When we celebrate the New Year, there is nothing new about it. Everything we did last year we are going to be doing this year only we will be one year older. Perhaps as we get older we forget about what we have done and think we are doing something new. Hooray for senility! I really do not care about that; my philosophy is, lets do it all over again. If it is worth doing the first time, it is worth doing again. This brings me to a great point, which is, some things are worth repeating while other things are not. It is trying to find out the difference between these two that makes life challenging. I do not mind repeating things if I am in charge of what I am repeating. I think we all should choose what we are going to repeat. For example, I wish I could choose a year to repeat. If I could repeat any year, it would be 1971. That year represents the greatest con in the history of mankind. I am not sure anything like it has ever happened before or since. That was the year I married a young lady who turned out to be the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. What bothers me about this is why did she really marry me? Was it my charm and good looks or did she think I was rich? There have been times I have wanted to query her on this very subject but then, I am always afraid she will tell me the truth. I do not mind the truth of it does not involve anything personally. I just will settle with the fact that that was the year I conned her into marrying me. We have been a great team ever since. She has kept me straight and I have given her opportunities to exercise that career, which she has become quite proficient. One of the great things resulting from this marriage is the fact that she has been faithful to point out my mistakes. Through her help, I discovered I have quite a few mistakes. I begin every year with a clean slate. I am able to celebrate January 1 with no mistakes whatsoever but then the next day my wife begins the ominous task of pointing out my mistakes. This is a joint effort, which leaves me out of joint often. I have a little theory along this line. I think that if it is a mistake you have made before it should not count anymore. I think the only thing that should be legitimate to point out are new mistakes. I find myself so busy practicing my old mistakes that I rarely get around to making new mistakes. All these years I have reveled in my old mistakes. Trying to find something new is a great strain on my little gray cells. At this point in my life, they are exhausted and are encouraging me to rely upon those old mistakes and give them a well-deserved rest. At my stage in life I think new is overrated and, if experience is anything, something new is always taxing and in more ways than one. Do not let the government find out that you have something new or Uncle Sam will come knocking at your door with a gentle request for tax money. There is an old saying that says insanity is doing the same things over and over expecting different results. Well, that does not describe me. I do not want different results. I like the results I have. I like doing the same thing over again because I know what to expect. And if ignorance in this area is bliss, I am the most blissful person on the planet. My challenge this year is to surprise my wife with some unexpected new mistakes. Just one! To get on the right track for the New Year, I start with the Bible. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away: behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). Instead of celebrating the New Year, I plan to celebrate that new creature in Christ. No mistake about it. Dr. James L.

The concept for this commandment comes from my oftquoted Leviticus 19, known as the Holiness Code: Neither should you stand by the blood of your neighbor. (Lev.19: 16) If a human beings life is in danger, one is obligated to do everything possible for the preservation of that life. One may violate the Sabbath, Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year, and even eat unkosher food if this will save a life. One may also travel on the Sabbath if this would help save a persons life. The donation of organs after death or from a living donor is also recognized by Judaism because of its life-saving measures. The chief Sephardic rabbi of Israel, Ovaday Yosef, has ruled that one can be a living donor as in the case of a kidney donation as long as the donors life is not put into jeopardy. This comes from the Jewish maxim that one life cannot be compromised for another. The famous and revered Rabbi Akiva ruled that when faced with such a dilemma, it is permissible to save ones one life based on the verse: Let him live by your side as your kinsman. Your life takes presentence over anothers. This situation is the difference one would find in a Jewish hospital. If the mother and child were in danger, all would be done to save the mother. In a Catholic hospital, the child would be saved. In the Jewish faith, one cannot be a martyr except in cases where one would be forced to commit adultery, incest or murder or idolatry. The preservation of human life transcends all the other commandments of Judaism. One cannot observe the other mitzvot without the blessing of life and health. Therefore Jews are commanded to preserve life in any way they can so that they may live by the commandments and not die by them. The obligation to save a life can take the form of saving someone from immediate danger such as drowning or saving someone from a situation that might prove life threatening in the future. I have taken upon myself the mitzvah of pekuach nefesh because I wish to raise awareness of a virulent type of breast cancer that is often misdiagnosed and is not usually presented with a lump or a calcification on a mammogram. The cancer I am referring to is called Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC and the campaign for its awareness is called Check for IBC. It strikes men as well as women and is the most aggressive (fast-growing) and deadly form of the disease. Though more rare than other forms, accounting for only 5 percent of breast cancers, speed in diagnosis and awareness of this form would make for pekuach nefesh, saving of a life. Symptoms of IBC include: increase in breast size; redness, rash or blotchiness resembling a bruise on the breast; lump or thickening or dimpling of the skin on the breast; warmth or tenderness of the breast; lymph node swelling under the arm or above the collarbone; flattening of the nipple or discharge from the nipple. Contrary to what most women have been taught, IBC can be painful and a single lump in the breast is not usually how this form of the disease presents itself.

It is always great to hear from you, the reader. Friday, January 4, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, January 4, 2013 R eportedly, theres a Legislative Delegation meeting on Jan. 8 at 1 p.m. at the colleges Klein Center. I say reportedly, because the only place its shown up on is the Sunshine notice put out by the County Commission anytime more than one commissioner might be at some sort of function together. So far I have received no notice of the meeting from chairman Dennis Baxley or any other legislator, nor have I seen it publicized anywhere else. So, I would suggest calling before going. However, working on the assumption that there is a meeting, I hereby submit some items that should be taken up by the Legislature. Watch your amendments. Last years election ballot was cluttered with 11 of them, and all were initiated by the Legislature. Not one was a grass-roots movement by the people of Florida. By the way, in case you hadnt noticed, most were defeated, so a lot of your efforts were a waste of time. Ban texting while driving. Talking on a cell phone is one thing. Typing a note on a tablet or phone is another. Its just natural to look at the screen to see what youre typing. Drivers should be able to talk on the phone without a problem its not much different than listening to the radio or CD. But texting? Get rid of it. Ease up on the driver license renewal restrictions. I recently did mine, and I had to show a birth certificate (at my age its beginning to wear out) and Social Security card. Never mind that I have been working and driving in Florida since 1968 and that my driving record is clean. I sincerely doubt if these rules and regulations are catching any terrorists in their late 60s. And if youre going to require working people to go to the office to renew, make it mandatory that all driver license offices be open on Saturday. Back off on some of your education rules and tests. One size fits all education cant work. Look at some of your northern rural counties, where half the students take some sort of agricultural study, and compare them to, say, Miami, where most of the children have never even seen a farm. Allow more control to local school boards. While on the subject of schools, make it mandatory that a superintendent of schools, whether elected or appointed, has a masters degree. Heres another school suggestion that some of you wont like. Since the Legislature is charged with handling public education issues, each legislator should be all-in on public schools. No legislator should be allowed to vote on any matter involving public schools if he or she has a child or grandchild in a private school. Keep legal advertising in newspapers, and allow free circulation papers (such as ours) that meet postal standards of at least 25 percent news content to print legals. That law is antiquated and should be changed. If you want to put legals online, thats fine, but understand that in Florida there is a large segment of population that doesnt surf the Internet. They must have access to those same legal ads in print. Get rid of red light cameras before the courts tell you to do so. There is inconsistent enforcement, improper enforcement and no chance for alleged violators to confront their accusers. Take the money cities spend for the cameras and for people to monitor them and put police officers at the same locations. Finally, pass a budget first. It gets tiring year after year of seeing the Legislature racing to pass a budget as the session winds down. How about a House and Senate rule that no legislation may be voted on until after a budget is adopted. That way, the one big thing that you are mandated to do will get done with proper debate. Of course, no one realistically thinks that the legislators are going to pay attention to me. But if others agree with any of these, and let all their legislators know about it, maybe something will get done. See you on Jan. 8 at 1 p.m., if it turns out the rumors are true. If not, send your suggestions to local legislators in writing. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

This from the National Center for Education Statistics, which recently released a pair of studies analyzing the reading, math and science achievements of students around the globe based on responses to tests produced by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement. One test the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study, or PIRLS evaluated students abilities to read for literary experience and acquire and use information theyve read, while another the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study, or TIMSS measured their mathematical and scientific abilities. Among the findings: Floridas fourth-graders scored above the U.S. average on PIRLS and, alongside Singapore, had more students performing at or above the advanced international reading benchmark than did the rest of the participating school systems around the world. In Florida and throughout the world, girls outperformed boys on PIRLS. In Florida, boys outperformed girls on TIMSS. On TIMSS, Florida had a higher percentage of students perform at or above international benchmarks than the international median. Another encouraging note: Floridas data came only from public school systems. Our states public schools and teachers have been harshly scrutinized by our Legislature and proponents of private schooling of late; these results show public education can and does work. Our teachers work will never be done, and our schools should always strive to improve. But in a state whose public education system has been marred by deep funding cuts, FCAT fiascos and perhaps a greater emphasis on metrics than results, these studies findings present us with a lesson worth memorizing: Our teachers are capable and our students willing, and when challenged, can rise above the rest of the world. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Fourth graders and test scores A legislative agenda for a new year Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Frustrated, at the leastThe latest mass shooting, I was going to say mass killing, that took place at Sandy Hook school, is as bizarre as anything I have ever heard. I didnt use the term mass killing because that title still goes to abortions. Even with all the inconsistencies it appears the investigation is over and closed because they found the body of a young mentally ill man that had apparently shot himself after seemingly shooting and killing 26 others. Nobody saw him do it, but that really doesnt seem to matter. The point is, at least the authorities say, an assault type weapon was used. The stage is now set. Since the gun free zone didnt work out to well for the victims, and so that this type of event never happens again, the guns must be removed from the hands of American citizens. And waiting in the wings, there are the peoples representatives in the federal government that relish the opportunity to accomplish the task. They, along with American citizens who back the gun ban, claim various reasons. We have seen written that the NRA is evil, and an enemy of the people. Guns are filthy. Guns kill. All kinds of indications, that the gun is the monster, and the individual little to do with it. Some, who back the ban, have called for killing the top officials in the NRA. There is little doubt that the issue of gun control is getting heated, and it seems to some that the facts dont matter. In China where gun control is complete, in 2010 there were four separate school attacks with a total of 18 killed. Weapons of choice were knifes and meat cleavers. In 2011 there was one child and three adults killed with an axe, while at another event box cutters were used to hurt eight children. Then we have the incident of Friday, Dec. 14, where a man wielding a knife attacked students at a school in central China, leaving 22 children and one adult injured. And lets not forget, Timothy McVeigh didnt use a gun. However he killed 168 innocent people and injured over 680. Of the 168 dead, 19 were children under the age of 6. But you can still buy fertilizer and fuel. Also, you can still rent trucks. Data from the U.S. Justice Departments Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that some 82,500 crimes across the nation are stopped by law-biding gun owners annually. Of course these statistics rarely, if ever, get national attention. Professor John R. Lott, interviewed on CNN after the Newtown massacre, noted, Every place in the world that we have crime data, both before and after a gun ban has gone into effect, every single place has seen an increase in murders after the ban has been put in place. And many times its been a several-fold or more increase. And theres a simple reason for that, and that is, when you ban guns, its basically the most-lawabiding citizens who turn in their guns, not the criminals. And rather than making it more difficult for criminals to commit crime, you actually make it easier. In 1982, the Kennesaw City Council unanimously passed a law requiring heads of households to own at least one firearm with ammunition. The ordinance states the gun law is needed to protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants. Then-councilman J.O. Stephenson said after the ordinance was passed, everyone went crazy. People all over the country said there would be shootings in the street and violence in homes, he said. Of course, that wasnt the case. In fact, according to Stephenson, it caused the crime rate in the city to plunge. Kennesaw Historical Society president Robert Jones said following the laws passage, the crime rate dropped 89 percent in the city, compared to the modest 10 percent drop statewide. The authorities brilliant ideas have created gun free zones. Thats where law-biding citizens carry no guns, but criminals go there to mass murder people because they know that they will be safe to carry out their plan. Who should be held responsible for those killings? Certainly the lawmakers hold some responsibility. These idiots seem to think if they make a law, to prevent something, it will work. If it did we would not need courts, judges, lawyers, juries, jails or prisons. So now I think the message is clear, at least for me. Do not infringe upon my rights.

It is always great to hear from you, the reader. Friday, January 4, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, January 4, 2013 R eportedly, theres a Legislative Delegation meeting on Jan. 8 at 1 p.m. at the colleges Klein Center. I say reportedly, because the only place its shown up on is the Sunshine notice put out by the County Commission anytime more than one commissioner might be at some sort of function together. So far I have received no notice of the meeting from chairman Dennis Baxley or any other legislator, nor have I seen it publicized anywhere else. So, I would suggest calling before going. However, working on the assumption that there is a meeting, I hereby submit some items that should be taken up by the Legislature. Watch your amendments. Last years election ballot was cluttered with 11 of them, and all were initiated by the Legislature. Not one was a grass-roots movement by the people of Florida. By the way, in case you hadnt noticed, most were defeated, so a lot of your efforts were a waste of time. Ban texting while driving. Talking on a cell phone is one thing. Typing a note on a tablet or phone is another. Its just natural to look at the screen to see what youre typing. Drivers should be able to talk on the phone without a problem its not much different than listening to the radio or CD. But texting? Get rid of it. Ease up on the driver license renewal restrictions. I recently did mine, and I had to show a birth certificate (at my age its beginning to wear out) and Social Security card. Never mind that I have been working and driving in Florida since 1968 and that my driving record is clean. I sincerely doubt if these rules and regulations are catching any terrorists in their late 60s. And if youre going to require working people to go to the office to renew, make it mandatory that all driver license offices be open on Saturday. Back off on some of your education rules and tests. One size fits all education cant work. Look at some of your northern rural counties, where half the students take some sort of agricultural study, and compare them to, say, Miami, where most of the children have never even seen a farm. Allow more control to local school boards. While on the subject of schools, make it mandatory that a superintendent of schools, whether elected or appointed, has a masters degree. Heres another school suggestion that some of you wont like. Since the Legislature is charged with handling public education issues, each legislator should be all-in on public schools. No legislator should be allowed to vote on any matter involving public schools if he or she has a child or grandchild in a private school. Keep legal advertising in newspapers, and allow free circulation papers (such as ours) that meet postal standards of at least 25 percent news content to print legals. That law is antiquated and should be changed. If you want to put legals online, thats fine, but understand that in Florida there is a large segment of population that doesnt surf the Internet. They must have access to those same legal ads in print. Get rid of red light cameras before the courts tell you to do so. There is inconsistent enforcement, improper enforcement and no chance for alleged violators to confront their accusers. Take the money cities spend for the cameras and for people to monitor them and put police officers at the same locations. Finally, pass a budget first. It gets tiring year after year of seeing the Legislature racing to pass a budget as the session winds down. How about a House and Senate rule that no legislation may be voted on until after a budget is adopted. That way, the one big thing that you are mandated to do will get done with proper debate. Of course, no one realistically thinks that the legislators are going to pay attention to me. But if others agree with any of these, and let all their legislators know about it, maybe something will get done. See you on Jan. 8 at 1 p.m., if it turns out the rumors are true. If not, send your suggestions to local legislators in writing. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

This from the National Center for Education Statistics, which recently released a pair of studies analyzing the reading, math and science achievements of students around the globe based on responses to tests produced by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement. One test the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study, or PIRLS evaluated students abilities to read for literary experience and acquire and use information theyve read, while another the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study, or TIMSS measured their mathematical and scientific abilities. Among the findings: Floridas fourth-graders scored above the U.S. average on PIRLS and, alongside Singapore, had more students performing at or above the advanced international reading benchmark than did the rest of the participating school systems around the world. In Florida and throughout the world, girls outperformed boys on PIRLS. In Florida, boys outperformed girls on TIMSS. On TIMSS, Florida had a higher percentage of students perform at or above international benchmarks than the international median. Another encouraging note: Floridas data came only from public school systems. Our states public schools and teachers have been harshly scrutinized by our Legislature and proponents of private schooling of late; these results show public education can and does work. Our teachers work will never be done, and our schools should always strive to improve. But in a state whose public education system has been marred by deep funding cuts, FCAT fiascos and perhaps a greater emphasis on metrics than results, these studies findings present us with a lesson worth memorizing: Our teachers are capable and our students willing, and when challenged, can rise above the rest of the world. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Fourth graders and test scores A legislative agenda for a new year Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Frustrated, at the leastThe latest mass shooting, I was going to say mass killing, that took place at Sandy Hook school, is as bizarre as anything I have ever heard. I didnt use the term mass killing because that title still goes to abortions. Even with all the inconsistencies it appears the investigation is over and closed because they found the body of a young mentally ill man that had apparently shot himself after seemingly shooting and killing 26 others. Nobody saw him do it, but that really doesnt seem to matter. The point is, at least the authorities say, an assault type weapon was used. The stage is now set. Since the gun free zone didnt work out to well for the victims, and so that this type of event never happens again, the guns must be removed from the hands of American citizens. And waiting in the wings, there are the peoples representatives in the federal government that relish the opportunity to accomplish the task. They, along with American citizens who back the gun ban, claim various reasons. We have seen written that the NRA is evil, and an enemy of the people. Guns are filthy. Guns kill. All kinds of indications, that the gun is the monster, and the individual little to do with it. Some, who back the ban, have called for killing the top officials in the NRA. There is little doubt that the issue of gun control is getting heated, and it seems to some that the facts dont matter. In China where gun control is complete, in 2010 there were four separate school attacks with a total of 18 killed. Weapons of choice were knifes and meat cleavers. In 2011 there was one child and three adults killed with an axe, while at another event box cutters were used to hurt eight children. Then we have the incident of Friday, Dec. 14, where a man wielding a knife attacked students at a school in central China, leaving 22 children and one adult injured. And lets not forget, Timothy McVeigh didnt use a gun. However he killed 168 innocent people and injured over 680. Of the 168 dead, 19 were children under the age of 6. But you can still buy fertilizer and fuel. Also, you can still rent trucks. Data from the U.S. Justice Departments Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that some 82,500 crimes across the nation are stopped by law-biding gun owners annually. Of course these statistics rarely, if ever, get national attention. Professor John R. Lott, interviewed on CNN after the Newtown massacre, noted, Every place in the world that we have crime data, both before and after a gun ban has gone into effect, every single place has seen an increase in murders after the ban has been put in place. And many times its been a several-fold or more increase. And theres a simple reason for that, and that is, when you ban guns, its basically the most-lawabiding citizens who turn in their guns, not the criminals. And rather than making it more difficult for criminals to commit crime, you actually make it easier. In 1982, the Kennesaw City Council unanimously passed a law requiring heads of households to own at least one firearm with ammunition. The ordinance states the gun law is needed to protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants. Then-councilman J.O. Stephenson said after the ordinance was passed, everyone went crazy. People all over the country said there would be shootings in the street and violence in homes, he said. Of course, that wasnt the case. In fact, according to Stephenson, it caused the crime rate in the city to plunge. Kennesaw Historical Society president Robert Jones said following the laws passage, the crime rate dropped 89 percent in the city, compared to the modest 10 percent drop statewide. The authorities brilliant ideas have created gun free zones. Thats where law-biding citizens carry no guns, but criminals go there to mass murder people because they know that they will be safe to carry out their plan. Who should be held responsible for those killings? Certainly the lawmakers hold some responsibility. These idiots seem to think if they make a law, to prevent something, it will work. If it did we would not need courts, judges, lawyers, juries, jails or prisons. So now I think the message is clear, at least for me. Do not infringe upon my rights.

The concept for this commandment comes from my oftquoted Leviticus 19, known as the Holiness Code: Neither should you stand by the blood of your neighbor. (Lev.19: 16) If a human beings life is in danger, one is obligated to do everything possible for the preservation of that life. One may violate the Sabbath, Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year, and even eat unkosher food if this will save a life. One may also travel on the Sabbath if this would help save a persons life. The donation of organs after death or from a living donor is also recognized by Judaism because of its life-saving measures. The chief Sephardic rabbi of Israel, Ovaday Yosef, has ruled that one can be a living donor as in the case of a kidney donation as long as the donors life is not put into jeopardy. This comes from the Jewish maxim that one life cannot be compromised for another. The famous and revered Rabbi Akiva ruled that when faced with such a dilemma, it is permissible to save ones one life based on the verse: Let him live by your side as your kinsman. Your life takes presentence over anothers. This situation is the difference one would find in a Jewish hospital. If the mother and child were in danger, all would be done to save the mother. In a Catholic hospital, the child would be saved. In the Jewish faith, one cannot be a martyr except in cases where one would be forced to commit adultery, incest or murder or idolatry. The preservation of human life transcends all the other commandments of Judaism. One cannot observe the other mitzvot without the blessing of life and health. Therefore Jews are commanded to preserve life in any way they can so that they may live by the commandments and not die by them. The obligation to save a life can take the form of saving someone from immediate danger such as drowning or saving someone from a situation that might prove life threatening in the future. I have taken upon myself the mitzvah of pekuach nefesh because I wish to raise awareness of a virulent type of breast cancer that is often misdiagnosed and is not usually presented with a lump or a calcification on a mammogram. The cancer I am referring to is called Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC and the campaign for its awareness is called Check for IBC. It strikes men as well as women and is the most aggressive (fast-growing) and deadly form of the disease. Though more rare than other forms, accounting for only 5 percent of breast cancers, speed in diagnosis and awareness of this form would make for pekuach nefesh, saving of a life. Symptoms of IBC include: increase in breast size; redness, rash or blotchiness resembling a bruise on the breast; lump or thickening or dimpling of the skin on the breast; warmth or tenderness of the breast; lymph node swelling under the arm or above the collarbone; flattening of the nipple or discharge from the nipple. Contrary to what most women have been taught, IBC can be painful and a single lump in the breast is not usually how this form of the disease presents itself.

TOLL FREE 1-877-676-1403 T he fact we actually survived another year is a tribute to somebodys tenacity; I am not sure whose. I know the only thing that got me through the year was the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and boy is she graciously tenacious. I was sure everything would collapse and of course, several times I collapsed in my easy chair. It is a New Year, or so they tell us but I have my suspicions. After this latest episode with the Mayans calendar, I am not too sure what date it is or what year it is, for that matter. They certainly got everything wrong and I have my suspicions about the rest of it. How do we really know that January 1 is actually January 1? Moreover, how do we know what year it is exactly? I think somewhere along the line somebody has pulled a scam on civilization and has messed up our calendars. If the Mayans got it wrong, maybe we have it wrong also. Whatever day and whatever year it is I am going to celebrate the New Year. If I am wrong, I have a lot of company. When we celebrate the New Year, there is nothing new about it. Everything we did last year we are going to be doing this year only we will be one year older. Perhaps as we get older we forget about what we have done and think we are doing something new. Hooray for senility! I really do not care about that; my philosophy is, lets do it all over again. If it is worth doing the first time, it is worth doing again. This brings me to a great point, which is, some things are worth repeating while other things are not. It is trying to find out the difference between these two that makes life challenging. I do not mind repeating things if I am in charge of what I am repeating. I think we all should choose what we are going to repeat. For example, I wish I could choose a year to repeat. If I could repeat any year, it would be 1971. That year represents the greatest con in the history of mankind. I am not sure anything like it has ever happened before or since. That was the year I married a young lady who turned out to be the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. What bothers me about this is why did she really marry me? Was it my charm and good looks or did she think I was rich? There have been times I have wanted to query her on this very subject but then, I am always afraid she will tell me the truth. I do not mind the truth of it does not involve anything personally. I just will settle with the fact that that was the year I conned her into marrying me. We have been a great team ever since. She has kept me straight and I have given her opportunities to exercise that career, which she has become quite proficient. One of the great things resulting from this marriage is the fact that she has been faithful to point out my mistakes. Through her help, I discovered I have quite a few mistakes. I begin every year with a clean slate. I am able to celebrate January 1 with no mistakes whatsoever but then the next day my wife begins the ominous task of pointing out my mistakes. This is a joint effort, which leaves me out of joint often. I have a little theory along this line. I think that if it is a mistake you have made before it should not count anymore. I think the only thing that should be legitimate to point out are new mistakes. I find myself so busy practicing my old mistakes that I rarely get around to making new mistakes. All these years I have reveled in my old mistakes. Trying to find something new is a great strain on my little gray cells. At this point in my life, they are exhausted and are encouraging me to rely upon those old mistakes and give them a well-deserved rest. At my stage in life I think new is overrated and, if experience is anything, something new is always taxing and in more ways than one. Do not let the government find out that you have something new or Uncle Sam will come knocking at your door with a gentle request for tax money. There is an old saying that says insanity is doing the same things over and over expecting different results. Well, that does not describe me. I do not want different results. I like the results I have. I like doing the same thing over again because I know what to expect. And if ignorance in this area is bliss, I am the most blissful person on the planet. My challenge this year is to surprise my wife with some unexpected new mistakes. Just one! To get on the right track for the New Year, I start with the Bible. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away: behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). Instead of celebrating the New Year, I plan to celebrate that new creature in Christ. No mistake about it. Dr. James L.

O n New Years Day many probably got up to a spouse saying, Wake up and smell the roses; the Rose Bowl Parade is on. After a night of celebrating the coming of 2013, perhaps with Four Roses, viewing a parade with its perfusion of all kinds of flowers may have been the best way to recover from a hangover. Much happened just a few days ago; read about it here. PartyingAt a New Year party we met many who churned out greetings. From a dairy farmer: Happy Moo Year! From Bugs Bunny: Hoppy New Year! From a cosmetic surgeon: Happy New Rear! From a woodsman: Happy Yew Near! From an aging flower child: Hippie New Year, man! From a game-show host: Happy Clue Year! From a sailor: Happy New Yaw! From a mechanic: Happy New Gear! From a rancher: Happy New Steer! From a jet pilot: Happy New Lear! From a cartographer: Mappy New Year! From another mechanic: Happy Lube Year! From a job counselor: Happy New Career! From an incessant talker: Happy Chew Yer Ear! From an orthopedist: Brace yourself for the New Year! From an attorney: Happy Sued Year! From a TV enthusiast: Happy Viewed Year! From a bartender: Happy Stewed Year!North Pole activitiesAfter Christmas, Santa and his reindeer got time for a rest. This gave Rudolph a chance to do something he had wanted for a long time. He made an appointment with a plastic surgeon because he was so sensitive about his long ears which were much more prominent than the ears of the other reindeer. So one week after Christmas, he let the good doctor do the reconstructive surgical procedure, and since that time, January 1 has been celebrated as New Ears Day. I think I heard that right. Poor Richards parade?A group of local homeless folks joined this years traditional parade of mimes and other performers on New Years Day in Philadelphia. They billed it as the mummers and the paupers. Tis the Season At the typical New Years Day gathering, Mom yells, Get out of my kitchen! The grown kids yell at their tiny offspring, Stop running! Youll break Grandmas furniture! Dad yells, Get out of the way! I cant see the football game on TV! The little ones yell, Its my toy! Let me play with it! Thats why this time of year is known as the Holler Day Season. Shots Do you realize that every New Years Eve 40,000 Americans go out to New Years Eve parties? These are staggering figures! Ive decided on my New Years Resolution. Beginning in March Im going to stop procrastinating. When I thought about the evils of drinking in the New Year, I gave up thinking. Last night at the bar I ordered a double. The bartender brought out a guy who looked just like me. The trouble with jogging is that the ice falls out of your glass. Gene drinks a toast on holidays, Heres to our holidays, all 365 of them! The satellite went into orbit on January 1st causing a new years revolution. Ive got great health insurance. If I get knocked on the head they pay me a lump sum. On New Years Day the caterpillar turned over a new leaf. Socialized Medicine is women at a party talking about their operations. Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account. Good intentions Once a year, the collectors of antique tents in Germany get together for a rally. This year the organizers decided to hold it in Meinz. Unfortunately, the local burghers took a dim view of so great an influx of tourists ruining their turf with tent pegs. The citizens organized themselves so thoroughly that they even had an anthem: Let Old and Quaint Tents Be Forgot and Never Brought to Meinz. Pun Alley resolutionTodays column would not be complete without some New Years resolutions. I recommend that you resolve to have more fun and laughs in the coming years. I resolve to try to help this along with Pun Alley every week.Oak Run residents Dick and Jane wish you a Happy New Year and trust that any resolution you make is not something that goes in one year and out the other.

All contributions are subject to editing for clarity, taste, and style.Member of the Community Papers of Florida ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Shutting people out to avoid distractions, even under a deadline, can cause hurt feelings. Instead, return calls and emails, and explain why you need a zone of privacy for now. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Although your keen Bulls eyes usually can discern whats fact from whats faux, that upcoming decision will need really solid data before you can risk a commitment. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) As your confidence grows, you should be able to work toward your goals with more enthusiasm. Open your mind to suggestions. Some of them might even work for you. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Reconnecting with someone from your past stirs up that old sense of adventure. But before you do anything else, be sure to get answers to those stilllingering questions. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Some people might resent the way you plan to resolve a difficult situation. But your commitment to making tough but fair decisions soon wins you their respect and support. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Mixed signals could be causing that vexing workplace problem. Before you choose to leave the project, ask for a meeting so you can get things out in the open. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your good intentions could backfire if youre not careful with other peoples feelings. Try using persuasion, not pressure, to get others to see your side of the situation. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your dedication to finishing the task at hand is laudable. But be careful not to overdo the midnight oil bit. Take time for relaxation with someone very special. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Although your intuition will help you make some tough choices in the first half of the month, youll need more facts to back up your actions later on. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) All that hard work and research in the workplace finally pays off as you hoped it would. Ignore comments from jealous types who are out to get the Goat riled up. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) An unfair decision creates unnecessary problems. But avoid anger and move carefully as you work this out. Expect to get support from an unlikely source. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A fuzzy financial vista persists until midmonth, when things begin to clear up. Youll also gain a better perspective on how to handle those pesky personal problems. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a wonderful way of being there for those who need your help in difficult times. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

The Home Instead Senior Care office serving Marion County has moved to a new location, 606 S.W. 3rd Ave., Ocala. Owners of the local Home Instead Senior Care franchise, Jim and Mary Samuelson, said the move will allow their staff to better serve area families and meet the needs of a rapidly-growing senior population. The office currently employs six staff members and 70 CAREGiversSM who go into homes and, in some cases, care communities, to help seniors with their non-medical needs. More than just an office space, our new location will serve as a resource center for seniors and families in our community, Jim Samuelson said. We are planning a regular schedule of educational programs for family caregivers to help them cope with the challenges they might face while caring for an older loved one. The first educational workshop will include information about Alzheimers disease and other dementias. It will be held from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 17 at the new Home Instead Senior Care office location. Interested Business Business that serves seniors moves office participants should call to reserve 352-622-6447 to reserve a space. A recent study conducted by Home Instead Senior Care found that 86 percent of older Americans want to age in place, remaining in their homes after retiring. Home Instead Senior Care provides services to seniors wherever they might call home: private or rental residences, assisted-living facilities and care centers. The companys CAREGivers help clients maintain their independence by assisting with activities of daily living such as meal preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, running errands, medication reminders and providing companionship. Our services are designed for any living arrangement where an older adult simply needs human interaction or help with day-to-day activities, Samuelson said. Services are available from just a few hours a day up to 24 hours, seven days a week including weekends and holidays.

So many doctors misdiagnose this form of cancer so being proactive is essential. Inflammatory Breast Cancer does its malevolence by traveling through the lymph system. IBC cells block the lymph vessels in the skin of the breast therefore causing the signature redness and inflamed areas, which give the disease its name. Unlike other forms of breast cancer, this variety grows in nests or sheets instead of a confined solid tumor making detection on a mammogram unreliable for finding this form of the disease. A doctors clinical exam or biopsy or breast ultrasound are also used in diagnosis. I am making my readers aware of this insidious form of cancer because it is so often misdiagnosed. It can appear like a breast infection but if after five days of treatment with no improvement, IBC should be looked into. It can come on quickly, often overnight. By the time it is finally recognized, the disease has advanced to stage IIIB with a five-year survival rate of 40 percent. IBC is treated with chemotherapy, surgery (usually a mastectomy) and radiation. Depending on the composition of the tumor, hormonal therapy using Herceptin, may be employed. Everyone is individual and success of treatment varies with individuals. New treatments and drugs have turned breast cancer in general into a chronic disease, no longer the death sentence of 30 years ago. Still the public needs to be made aware so that lives can be saved. In the Talmud is says that whoever saves a life; it is as if they have saved a world. If I have made one person aware of this disease, I may have saved a life. Maybe even my own.

THE MIDDLESTEINS By Jami Attenberg As the clever book jacket suggests with its fries, burgers, and shakes, someone in the Middlestein family has an eating disorder and not just an ordinary one but the grand opera of eating disorders. In time we learn that retired Chicago lawyer Edie Middlestein has finally tipped the scales at 332 and her patient husband who always liked a little meat on a woman has had enough and has walked out. Diabetic and facing a second round of surgery on her legs, Edie still cant curb her appetite. Food is the one thing that never lets her down. She ate because she loved to eat. She knew she loved to eat, that her heart and soul felt full when she felt full. Meanwhile, family members go on with their lives. Husband Richards on the prowl while he still has a shot at love with a more agile partner. His search leads to humiliating, eyeopening senior citizen dating scenes. It seems that everyone has given up on Edie except her skinny daughter-in-law Rachelle whos obsessed with saving her. She stalks her through an afternoon of fast-food drivethrus, culminating in a Chinese restaurant where Edies greeted as a returning hero. This mordant comedy in which a character eats herself to death might have been simply creepy from a less talented writer. But Attenbergs dysfunctional Jewish family struggles to keep on loving each other even in their most unlovely Dysfunctional family struggles B OOK MARK P W Pat Wellington moments. And although she does not defend Edies choices or make her cute and cuddly, she gives us in this character a woman who is all too real in her helplessness before lifes temptations. In contrast to the doomed matriarch there is plenty to laugh about including dope-smoking son Bennys angst about his twins upcoming bnai mitzvah involving hip-hop lessons and chocolate fountains. At the heart of the novel are every familys interactions and divergent needs. If the book jumps around a bit, author Attenberg compensates by making us care enough about her Middlesteins to keep on reading. Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Obituary Glenn D.

Kuhn was a candidate for sheriff when allegations of misconduct with a married woman were made. Kuhn, who is also married, was alleged to have used a sheriff's vehicle during the affair. Kuhn dropped out of the race after he had won the primary. Chris Blair, who had lost to Kuhn, replaced him as the Republican candidate, and easily won the election in November. The following was the message from Dean: Based upon the findings in the Dan Kuhn Internal Affairs Report, I am reinstating to active duty Deputy Robert Youmans. As to Major David Sperring and Captain Chip Wildy, they will remain on suspension until I have had sufficient time to thoroughly consider an appropriate response to the sustained findings concerning their involvement in the Dan Kuhn matter. In the meantime, however, I am willing to consider Major Sperrings and Captain Wildys letters of resignation and early retirement in view of their length of service with the Sheriffs Office. As to Dan Kuhn, who has already resigned, it is my understanding that the State Attorneys Office has declined to file criminal charges against Dan Kuhn for the sustained findings of misconduct. Therefore, in an effort to finalize this matter, I have requested our outside accountants and our fiscal department to calculate the amount of Dan Kuhns salary, benefits and any expenses incurred by the Sheriffs Office during any documented period of time when on duty misconduct by Dan Kuhn was occurring or whenever Sheriffs Office facilities or vehicles were involved. I have further requested that such costs and expenses incurred by the Sheriffs Office be deducted from any money which may be due to Dan Kuhn, together with an additional deduction for the cost of the Internal Affairs investigation. Kuhn faces expenses, but no criminal case Just clowning around From the left, Paula Magen (Sunflower), Dotty Baird (Penny), and Katie White (Goofy) are getting ready for the youg and not so young to get a design painted on their cheek or have a removable tattoo applied by Katherine Anshewitz (not in picture).

Citizens Academy Class of 2012 graduate Denise Azis said that the program answered a lot of questions that affect everyday life. I have a better understanding of how the essential 911 service works. I can better appreciate what the fire and rescue people do. I also understand the solid waste and utilities she said. Its also good knowing where the various sites are located, and I know that if I called any of them (county staff) with a question, they would be kind and helpful.

As to Major David Sperring and Captain Chip Wildy, they will remain on suspension until I have had sufficient time to thoroughly consider an appropriate response to the sustained findings concerning their involvement in the Dan Kuhn matter. In the meantime, however, I am willing to consider Major Sperrings and Captain Wildys letters of resignation and early retirement in view of their length of service with the Sheriffs Office. As to Dan Kuhn, who has already resigned, it is my understanding that the State Attorneys Office has declined to file criminal charges against Dan Kuhn for the sustained findings of misconduct. Therefore, in an effort to finalize this matter, I have requested our outside accountants and our fiscal department to calculate the amount of Dan Kuhns salary, benefits and any expenses incurred by the Sheriffs Office during any documented period of time when on duty misconduct by Dan Kuhn was occurring or whenever Sheriffs Office facilities or vehicles were involved. I have further requested that such costs and expenses incurred by the Sheriffs Office be deducted from any money which may be due to Dan Kuhn, together with an additional deduction for the cost of the Internal Affairs investigation. Kuhn faces expenses, but no criminal case Just clowning around From the left, Paula Magen (Sunflower), Dotty Baird (Penny), and Katie White (Goofy) are getting ready for the youg and not so young to get a design painted on their cheek or have a removable tattoo applied by Katherine Anshewitz (not in picture).

Signup for Citizens Academy startingGet your keyboard or pen/pencil ready the opportunity to register for Marion Countys Citizens Academy is finally here. The county began accepting applications for its 2013 class Wednesday. A free 10-week program, the Citizens Academy provides an opportunity for local residents and business owners to get an inside look at county government and its operations, services and challenges. Participants will attend sessions on a different department or facet of county government each week starting in March. Sessions last approximately three hours and include presentations, tours and hands-on activities at various county locations. Citizens Academy Class of 2012 graduate Denise Azis said that the program answered a lot of questions that affect everyday life. I have a better understanding of how the essential 911 service works. I can better appreciate what the fire and rescue people do. I also understand the solid waste and utilities she said. Its also good knowing where the various sites are located, and I know that if I called any of them (county staff) with a question, they would be kind and helpful. Fellow Class of 2012 grad Rich Lambrecht noted that as a supervisor of his local community development district, he is frequently contacted by neighbors who have questions about government services and responsibilities the answers often involve Marion County government. He encourages others to take part in the program. Marion County residents or business owners ages 18 and older are eligible to attend. All participants must complete a registration form and be accepted prior to attending and go to a minimum of eight of the 10 sessions to graduate.

So many doctors misdiagnose this form of cancer so being proactive is essential. Inflammatory Breast Cancer does its malevolence by traveling through the lymph system. IBC cells block the lymph vessels in the skin of the breast therefore causing the signature redness and inflamed areas, which give the disease its name. Unlike other forms of breast cancer, this variety grows in nests or sheets instead of a confined solid tumor making detection on a mammogram unreliable for finding this form of the disease. A doctors clinical exam or biopsy or breast ultrasound are also used in diagnosis. I am making my readers aware of this insidious form of cancer because it is so often misdiagnosed. It can appear like a breast infection but if after five days of treatment with no improvement, IBC should be looked into. It can come on quickly, often overnight. By the time it is finally recognized, the disease has advanced to stage IIIB with a five-year survival rate of 40 percent. IBC is treated with chemotherapy, surgery (usually a mastectomy) and radiation. Depending on the composition of the tumor, hormonal therapy using Herceptin, may be employed. Everyone is individual and success of treatment varies with individuals. New treatments and drugs have turned breast cancer in general into a chronic disease, no longer the death sentence of 30 years ago. Still the public needs to be made aware so that lives can be saved. In the Talmud is says that whoever saves a life; it is as if they have saved a world. If I have made one person aware of this disease, I may have saved a life. Maybe even my own.

THE MIDDLESTEINS By Jami Attenberg As the clever book jacket suggests with its fries, burgers, and shakes, someone in the Middlestein family has an eating disorder and not just an ordinary one but the grand opera of eating disorders. In time we learn that retired Chicago lawyer Edie Middlestein has finally tipped the scales at 332 and her patient husband who always liked a little meat on a woman has had enough and has walked out. Diabetic and facing a second round of surgery on her legs, Edie still cant curb her appetite. Food is the one thing that never lets her down. She ate because she loved to eat. She knew she loved to eat, that her heart and soul felt full when she felt full. Meanwhile, family members go on with their lives. Husband Richards on the prowl while he still has a shot at love with a more agile partner. His search leads to humiliating, eyeopening senior citizen dating scenes. It seems that everyone has given up on Edie except her skinny daughter-in-law Rachelle whos obsessed with saving her. She stalks her through an afternoon of fast-food drivethrus, culminating in a Chinese restaurant where Edies greeted as a returning hero. This mordant comedy in which a character eats herself to death might have been simply creepy from a less talented writer. But Attenbergs dysfunctional Jewish family struggles to keep on loving each other even in their most unlovely Dysfunctional family struggles BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington moments. And although she does not defend Edies choices or make her cute and cuddly, she gives us in this character a woman who is all too real in her helplessness before lifes temptations. In contrast to the doomed matriarch there is plenty to laugh about including dope-smoking son Bennys angst about his twins upcoming bnai mitzvah involving hip-hop lessons and chocolate fountains. At the heart of the novel are every familys interactions and divergent needs. If the book jumps around a bit, author Attenberg compensates by making us care enough about her Middlesteins to keep on reading. Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Obituary Glenn D.

The Home Instead Senior Care office serving Marion County has moved to a new location, 606 S.W. 3rd Ave., Ocala. Owners of the local Home Instead Senior Care franchise, Jim and Mary Samuelson, said the move will allow their staff to better serve area families and meet the needs of a rapidly-growing senior population. The office currently employs six staff members and 70 CAREGiversSM who go into homes and, in some cases, care communities, to help seniors with their non-medical needs. More than just an office space, our new location will serve as a resource center for seniors and families in our community, Jim Samuelson said. We are planning a regular schedule of educational programs for family caregivers to help them cope with the challenges they might face while caring for an older loved one. The first educational workshop will include information about Alzheimers disease and other dementias. It will be held from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 17 at the new Home Instead Senior Care office location. Interested Business Business that serves seniors moves office participants should call to reserve 352-622-6447 to reserve a space. A recent study conducted by Home Instead Senior Care found that 86 percent of older Americans want to age in place, remaining in their homes after retiring. Home Instead Senior Care provides services to seniors wherever they might call home: private or rental residences, assisted-living facilities and care centers. The companys CAREGivers help clients maintain their independence by assisting with activities of daily living such as meal preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, running errands, medication reminders and providing companionship. Our services are designed for any living arrangement where an older adult simply needs human interaction or help with day-to-day activities, Samuelson said. Services are available from just a few hours a day up to 24 hours, seven days a week including weekends and holidays. For more information about services or the Family Caregiver Workshops, call 352-622-6447 or visit the companys website at www.homeinstead.com/612. If you are a caregiver of a loved one with Dementia or Alzheimers disease, or have been recently diagnosed with the disease, Emeritus Ocala West would like to invite you to our monthly support groups. In addition to peer support, the groups will also invite specialists in the field who can answer questions about Dementia and Alzheimers disease, its causes, how a diagnosis is made and current research, as well as coping mechanisms for caregivers. Emeritus Ocala West staff will be available to discuss our unique Join Their Journey Program. There is no cost to attend this group and everyone who is living with a friend or family member with Dementia or Alzheimers is encouraged to attend. Support groups are the second Tuesday of each month from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. or the last Thursday of every month from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Please contact Tanja Papa, Memory Care Director at 352-861-4444 for more information. Emeritus Ocala West is at 9070 S.W. 80th Ave., Ocala. Alzheimers caregivers can join support group Read the classifieds

After a night of celebrating the coming of 2013, perhaps with Four Roses, viewing a parade with its perfusion of all kinds of flowers may have been the best way to recover from a hangover. Much happened just a few days ago; read about it here.PartyingAt a New Year party we met many who churned out greetings. From a dairy farmer: Happy Moo Year! From Bugs Bunny: Hoppy New Year! From a cosmetic surgeon: Happy New Rear! From a woodsman: Happy Yew Near! From an aging flower child: Hippie New Year, man! From a game-show host: Happy Clue Year! From a sailor: Happy New Yaw! From a mechanic: Happy New Gear! From a rancher: Happy New Steer! From a jet pilot: Happy New Lear! From a cartographer: Mappy New Year! From another mechanic: Happy Lube Year! From a job counselor: Happy New Career! From an incessant talker: Happy Chew Yer Ear! From an orthopedist: Brace yourself for the New Year! From an attorney: Happy Sued Year! From a TV enthusiast: Happy Viewed Year! From a bartender: Happy Stewed Year!North Pole activitiesAfter Christmas, Santa and his reindeer got time for a rest. This gave Rudolph a chance to do something he had wanted for a long time. He made an appointment with a plastic surgeon because he was so sensitive about his long ears which were much more prominent than the ears of the other reindeer. So one week after Christmas, he let the good doctor do the reconstructive surgical procedure, and since that time, January 1 has been celebrated as New Ears Day. I think I heard that right.Poor Richards parade?A group of local homeless folks joined this years traditional parade of mimes and other performers on New Years Day in Philadelphia. They billed it as the mummers and the paupers.Tis the SeasonAt the typical New Years Day gathering, Mom yells, Get out of my kitchen! The grown kids yell at their tiny offspring, Stop running! Youll break Grandmas furniture! Dad yells, Get out of the way! I cant see the football game on TV! The little ones yell, Its my toy! Let me play with it! Thats why this time of year is known as the Holler Day Season.ShotsDo you realize that every New Years Eve 40,000 Americans go out to New Years Eve parties? These are staggering figures! Ive decided on my New Years Resolution. Beginning in March Im going to stop procrastinating. When I thought about the evils of drinking in the New Year, I gave up thinking. Last night at the bar I ordered a double. The bartender brought out a guy who looked just like me. The trouble with jogging is that the ice falls out of your glass. Gene drinks a toast on holidays, Heres to our holidays, all 365 of them! The satellite went into orbit on January 1st causing a new years revolution. Ive got great health insurance. If I get knocked on the head they pay me a lump sum. On New Years Day the caterpillar turned over a new leaf. Socialized Medicine is women at a party talking about their operations. Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account.Good intentionsOnce a year, the collectors of antique tents in Germany get together for a rally. This year the organizers decided to hold it in Meinz. Unfortunately, the local burghers took a dim view of so great an influx of tourists ruining their turf with tent pegs. The citizens organized themselves so thoroughly that they even had an anthem: Let Old and Quaint Tents Be Forgot and Never Brought to Meinz.Pun Alley resolutionTodays column would not be complete without some New Years resolutions. I recommend that you resolve to have more fun and laughs in the coming years. I resolve to try to help this along with Pun Alley every week.Oak Run residents Dick and Jane wish you a Happy New Year and trust that any resolution you make is not something that goes in one year and out the other.

Instead, return calls and emails, and explain why you need a zone of privacy for now. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Although your keen Bulls eyes usually can discern whats fact from whats faux, that upcoming decision will need really solid data before you can risk a commitment. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) As your confidence grows, you should be able to work toward your goals with more enthusiasm. Open your mind to suggestions. Some of them might even work for you. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Reconnecting with someone from your past stirs up that old sense of adventure. But before you do anything else, be sure to get answers to those stilllingering questions. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Some people might resent the way you plan to resolve a difficult situation. But your commitment to making tough but fair decisions soon wins you their respect and support. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Mixed signals could be causing that vexing workplace problem. Before you choose to leave the project, ask for a meeting so you can get things out in the open. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your good intentions could backfire if youre not careful with other peoples feelings. Try using persuasion, not pressure, to get others to see your side of the situation. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your dedication to finishing the task at hand is laudable. But be careful not to overdo the midnight oil bit. Take time for relaxation with someone very special. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Although your intuition will help you make some tough choices in the first half of the month, youll need more facts to back up your actions later on. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) All that hard work and research in the workplace finally pays off as you hoped it would. Ignore comments from jealous types who are out to get the Goat riled up. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) An unfair decision creates unnecessary problems. But avoid anger and move carefully as you work this out. Expect to get support from an unlikely source. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A fuzzy financial vista persists until midmonth, when things begin to clear up. Youll also gain a better perspective on how to handle those pesky personal problems. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a wonderful way of being there for those who need your help in difficult times. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

I know the only thing that got me through the year was the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and boy is she graciously tenacious. I was sure everything would collapse and of course, several times I collapsed in my easy chair. It is a New Year, or so they tell us but I have my suspicions. After this latest episode with the Mayans calendar, I am not too sure what date it is or what year it is, for that matter. They certainly got everything wrong and I have my suspicions about the rest of it. How do we really know that January 1 is actually January 1? Moreover, how do we know what year it is exactly? I think somewhere along the line somebody has pulled a scam on civilization and has messed up our calendars. If the Mayans got it wrong, maybe we have it wrong also. Whatever day and whatever year it is I am going to celebrate the New Year. If I am wrong, I have a lot of company. When we celebrate the New Year, there is nothing new about it. Everything we did last year we are going to be doing this year only we will be one year older. Perhaps as we get older we forget about what we have done and think we are doing something new. Hooray for senility! I really do not care about that; my philosophy is, lets do it all over again. If it is worth doing the first time, it is worth doing again. This brings me to a great point, which is, some things are worth repeating while other things are not. It is trying to find out the difference between these two that makes life challenging. I do not mind repeating things if I am in charge of what I am repeating. I think we all should choose what we are going to repeat. For example, I wish I could choose a year to repeat. If I could repeat any year, it would be 1971. That year represents the greatest con in the history of mankind. I am not sure anything like it has ever happened before or since. That was the year I married a young lady who turned out to be the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. What bothers me about this is why did she really marry me? Was it my charm and good looks or did she think I was rich? There have been times I have wanted to query her on this very subject but then, I am always afraid she will tell me the truth. I do not mind the truth of it does not involve anything personally. I just will settle with the fact that that was the year I conned her into marrying me. We have been a great team ever since. She has kept me straight and I have given her opportunities to exercise that career, which she has become quite proficient. One of the great things resulting from this marriage is the fact that she has been faithful to point out my mistakes. Through her help, I discovered I have quite a few mistakes. I begin every year with a clean slate. I am able to celebrate January 1 with no mistakes whatsoever but then the next day my wife begins the ominous task of pointing out my mistakes. This is a joint effort, which leaves me out of joint often. I have a little theory along this line. I think that if it is a mistake you have made before it should not count anymore. I think the only thing that should be legitimate to point out are new mistakes. I find myself so busy practicing my old mistakes that I rarely get around to making new mistakes. All these years I have reveled in my old mistakes. Trying to find something new is a great strain on my little gray cells. At this point in my life, they are exhausted and are encouraging me to rely upon those old mistakes and give them a well-deserved rest. At my stage in life I think new is overrated and, if experience is anything, something new is always taxing and in more ways than one. Do not let the government find out that you have something new or Uncle Sam will come knocking at your door with a gentle request for tax money. There is an old saying that says insanity is doing the same things over and over expecting different results. Well, that does not describe me. I do not want different results. I like the results I have. I like doing the same thing over again because I know what to expect. And if ignorance in this area is bliss, I am the most blissful person on the planet. My challenge this year is to surprise my wife with some unexpected new mistakes. Just one! To get on the right track for the New Year, I start with the Bible. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away: behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). Instead of celebrating the New Year, I plan to celebrate that new creature in Christ. No mistake about it.Dr. James L.

The concept for this commandment comes from my oftquoted Leviticus 19, known as the Holiness Code: Neither should you stand by the blood of your neighbor. (Lev.19: 16) If a human beings life is in danger, one is obligated to do everything possible for the preservation of that life. One may violate the Sabbath, Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year, and even eat unkosher food if this will save a life. One may also travel on the Sabbath if this would help save a persons life. The donation of organs after death or from a living donor is also recognized by Judaism because of its life-saving measures. The chief Sephardic rabbi of Israel, Ovaday Yosef, has ruled that one can be a living donor as in the case of a kidney donation as long as the donors life is not put into jeopardy. This comes from the Jewish maxim that one life cannot be compromised for another. The famous and revered Rabbi Akiva ruled that when faced with such a dilemma, it is permissible to save ones one life based on the verse: Let him live by your side as your kinsman. Your life takes presentence over anothers. This situation is the difference one would find in a Jewish hospital. If the mother and child were in danger, all would be done to save the mother. In a Catholic hospital, the child would be saved. In the Jewish faith, one cannot be a martyr except in cases where one would be forced to commit adultery, incest or murder or idolatry. The preservation of human life transcends all the other commandments of Judaism. One cannot observe the other mitzvot without the blessing of life and health. Therefore Jews are commanded to preserve life in any way they can so that they may live by the commandments and not die by them. The obligation to save a life can take the form of saving someone from immediate danger such as drowning or saving someone from a situation that might prove life threatening in the future. I have taken upon myself the mitzvah of pekuach nefesh because I wish to raise awareness of a virulent type of breast cancer that is often misdiagnosed and is not usually presented with a lump or a calcification on a mammogram. The cancer I am referring to is called Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC and the campaign for its awareness is called Check for IBC. It strikes men as well as women and is the most aggressive (fast-growing) and deadly form of the disease. Though more rare than other forms, accounting for only 5 percent of breast cancers, speed in diagnosis and awareness of this form would make for pekuach nefesh, saving of a life. Symptoms of IBC include: increase in breast size; redness, rash or blotchiness resembling a bruise on the breast; lump or thickening or dimpling of the skin on the breast; warmth or tenderness of the breast; lymph node swelling under the arm or above the collarbone; flattening of the nipple or discharge from the nipple. Contrary to what most women have been taught, IBC can be painful and a single lump in the breast is not usually how this form of the disease presents itself.

It is always great to hear from you, the reader. Friday, January 4, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, January 4, 2013 Reportedly, theres a Legislative Delegation meeting on Jan. 8 at 1 p.m. at the colleges Klein Center. I say reportedly, because the only place its shown up on is the Sunshine notice put out by the County Commission anytime more than one commissioner might be at some sort of function together. So far I have received no notice of the meeting from chairman Dennis Baxley or any other legislator, nor have I seen it publicized anywhere else. So, I would suggest calling before going. However, working on the assumption that there is a meeting, I hereby submit some items that should be taken up by the Legislature. Watch your amendments. Last years election ballot was cluttered with 11 of them, and all were initiated by the Legislature. Not one was a grass-roots movement by the people of Florida. By the way, in case you hadnt noticed, most were defeated, so a lot of your efforts were a waste of time. Ban texting while driving. Talking on a cell phone is one thing. Typing a note on a tablet or phone is another. Its just natural to look at the screen to see what youre typing. Drivers should be able to talk on the phone without a problem its not much different than listening to the radio or CD. But texting? Get rid of it. Ease up on the driver license renewal restrictions. I recently did mine, and I had to show a birth certificate (at my age its beginning to wear out) and Social Security card. Never mind that I have been working and driving in Florida since 1968 and that my driving record is clean. I sincerely doubt if these rules and regulations are catching any terrorists in their late 60s. And if youre going to require working people to go to the office to renew, make it mandatory that all driver license offices be open on Saturday. Back off on some of your education rules and tests. One size fits all education cant work. Look at some of your northern rural counties, where half the students take some sort of agricultural study, and compare them to, say, Miami, where most of the children have never even seen a farm. Allow more control to local school boards. While on the subject of schools, make it mandatory that a superintendent of schools, whether elected or appointed, has a masters degree. Heres another school suggestion that some of you wont like. Since the Legislature is charged with handling public education issues, each legislator should be all-in on public schools. No legislator should be allowed to vote on any matter involving public schools if he or she has a child or grandchild in a private school. Keep legal advertising in newspapers, and allow free circulation papers (such as ours) that meet postal standards of at least 25 percent news content to print legals. That law is antiquated and should be changed. If you want to put legals online, thats fine, but understand that in Florida there is a large segment of population that doesnt surf the Internet. They must have access to those same legal ads in print. Get rid of red light cameras before the courts tell you to do so. There is inconsistent enforcement, improper enforcement and no chance for alleged violators to confront their accusers. Take the money cities spend for the cameras and for people to monitor them and put police officers at the same locations. Finally, pass a budget first. It gets tiring year after year of seeing the Legislature racing to pass a budget as the session winds down. How about a House and Senate rule that no legislation may be voted on until after a budget is adopted. That way, the one big thing that you are mandated to do will get done with proper debate. Of course, no one realistically thinks that the legislators are going to pay attention to me. But if others agree with any of these, and let all their legislators know about it, maybe something will get done. See you on Jan. 8 at 1 p.m., if it turns out the rumors are true. If not, send your suggestions to local legislators in writing.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Sweden. France. Denmark. Germany. Israel. Not only can your fourth-grader name them, theyve bested them. This from the National Center for Education Statistics, which recently released a pair of studies analyzing the reading, math and science achievements of students around the globe based on responses to tests produced by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement. One test the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study, or PIRLS evaluated students abilities to read for literary experience and acquire and use information theyve read, while another the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study, or TIMSS measured their mathematical and scientific abilities. Among the findings: Floridas fourth-graders scored above the U.S. average on PIRLS and, alongside Singapore, had more students performing at or above the advanced international reading benchmark than did the rest of the participating school systems around the world. In Florida and throughout the world, girls outperformed boys on PIRLS. In Florida, boys outperformed girls on TIMSS. On TIMSS, Florida had a higher percentage of students perform at or above international benchmarks than the international median. Another encouraging note: Floridas data came only from public school systems. Our states public schools and teachers have been harshly scrutinized by our Legislature and proponents of private schooling of late; these results show public education can and does work. Our teachers work will never be done, and our schools should always strive to improve. But in a state whose public education system has been marred by deep funding cuts, FCAT fiascos and perhaps a greater emphasis on metrics than results, these studies findings present us with a lesson worth memorizing: Our teachers are capable and our students willing, and when challenged, can rise above the rest of the world.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Fourth graders and test scores A legislative agenda for a new year Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Frustrated, at the leastThe latest mass shooting, I was going to say mass killing, that took place at Sandy Hook school, is as bizarre as anything I have ever heard. I didnt use the term mass killing because that title still goes to abortions. Even with all the inconsistencies it appears the investigation is over and closed because they found the body of a young mentally ill man that had apparently shot himself after seemingly shooting and killing 26 others. Nobody saw him do it, but that really doesnt seem to matter. The point is, at least the authorities say, an assault type weapon was used. The stage is now set. Since the gun free zone didnt work out to well for the victims, and so that this type of event never happens again, the guns must be removed from the hands of American citizens. And waiting in the wings, there are the peoples representatives in the federal government that relish the opportunity to accomplish the task. They, along with American citizens who back the gun ban, claim various reasons. We have seen written that the NRA is evil, and an enemy of the people. Guns are filthy. Guns kill. All kinds of indications, that the gun is the monster, and the individual little to do with it. Some, who back the ban, have called for killing the top officials in the NRA. There is little doubt that the issue of gun control is getting heated, and it seems to some that the facts dont matter. In China where gun control is complete, in 2010 there were four separate school attacks with a total of 18 killed. Weapons of choice were knifes and meat cleavers. In 2011 there was one child and three adults killed with an axe, while at another event box cutters were used to hurt eight children. Then we have the incident of Friday, Dec. 14, where a man wielding a knife attacked students at a school in central China, leaving 22 children and one adult injured. And lets not forget, Timothy McVeigh didnt use a gun. However he killed 168 innocent people and injured over 680. Of the 168 dead, 19 were children under the age of 6. But you can still buy fertilizer and fuel. Also, you can still rent trucks. Data from the U.S. Justice Departments Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that some 82,500 crimes across the nation are stopped by law-biding gun owners annually. Of course these statistics rarely, if ever, get national attention. Professor John R. Lott, interviewed on CNN after the Newtown massacre, noted, Every place in the world that we have crime data, both before and after a gun ban has gone into effect, every single place has seen an increase in murders after the ban has been put in place. And many times its been a several-fold or more increase. And theres a simple reason for that, and that is, when you ban guns, its basically the most-lawabiding citizens who turn in their guns, not the criminals. And rather than making it more difficult for criminals to commit crime, you actually make it easier. In 1982, the Kennesaw City Council unanimously passed a law requiring heads of households to own at least one firearm with ammunition. The ordinance states the gun law is needed to protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants. Then-councilman J.O. Stephenson said after the ordinance was passed, everyone went crazy. People all over the country said there would be shootings in the street and violence in homes, he said. Of course, that wasnt the case. In fact, according to Stephenson, it caused the crime rate in the city to plunge. Kennesaw Historical Society president Robert Jones said following the laws passage, the crime rate dropped 89 percent in the city, compared to the modest 10 percent drop statewide. The authorities brilliant ideas have created gun free zones. Thats where law-biding citizens carry no guns, but criminals go there to mass murder people because they know that they will be safe to carry out their plan. Who should be held responsible for those killings? Certainly the lawmakers hold some responsibility. These idiots seem to think if they make a law, to prevent something, it will work. If it did we would not need courts, judges, lawyers, juries, jails or prisons. So now I think the message is clear, at least for me. Do not infringe upon my rights.

It is always great to hear from you, the reader. Friday, January 4, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, January 4, 2013 Reportedly, theres a Legislative Delegation meeting on Jan. 8 at 1 p.m. at the colleges Klein Center. I say reportedly, because the only place its shown up on is the Sunshine notice put out by the County Commission anytime more than one commissioner might be at some sort of function together. So far I have received no notice of the meeting from chairman Dennis Baxley or any other legislator, nor have I seen it publicized anywhere else. So, I would suggest calling before going. However, working on the assumption that there is a meeting, I hereby submit some items that should be taken up by the Legislature. Watch your amendments. Last years election ballot was cluttered with 11 of them, and all were initiated by the Legislature. Not one was a grass-roots movement by the people of Florida. By the way, in case you hadnt noticed, most were defeated, so a lot of your efforts were a waste of time. Ban texting while driving. Talking on a cell phone is one thing. Typing a note on a tablet or phone is another. Its just natural to look at the screen to see what youre typing. Drivers should be able to talk on the phone without a problem its not much different than listening to the radio or CD. But texting? Get rid of it. Ease up on the driver license renewal restrictions. I recently did mine, and I had to show a birth certificate (at my age its beginning to wear out) and Social Security card. Never mind that I have been working and driving in Florida since 1968 and that my driving record is clean. I sincerely doubt if these rules and regulations are catching any terrorists in their late 60s. And if youre going to require working people to go to the office to renew, make it mandatory that all driver license offices be open on Saturday. Back off on some of your education rules and tests. One size fits all education cant work. Look at some of your northern rural counties, where half the students take some sort of agricultural study, and compare them to, say, Miami, where most of the children have never even seen a farm. Allow more control to local school boards. While on the subject of schools, make it mandatory that a superintendent of schools, whether elected or appointed, has a masters degree. Heres another school suggestion that some of you wont like. Since the Legislature is charged with handling public education issues, each legislator should be all-in on public schools. No legislator should be allowed to vote on any matter involving public schools if he or she has a child or grandchild in a private school. Keep legal advertising in newspapers, and allow free circulation papers (such as ours) that meet postal standards of at least 25 percent news content to print legals. That law is antiquated and should be changed. If you want to put legals online, thats fine, but understand that in Florida there is a large segment of population that doesnt surf the Internet. They must have access to those same legal ads in print. Get rid of red light cameras before the courts tell you to do so. There is inconsistent enforcement, improper enforcement and no chance for alleged violators to confront their accusers. Take the money cities spend for the cameras and for people to monitor them and put police officers at the same locations. Finally, pass a budget first. It gets tiring year after year of seeing the Legislature racing to pass a budget as the session winds down. How about a House and Senate rule that no legislation may be voted on until after a budget is adopted. That way, the one big thing that you are mandated to do will get done with proper debate. Of course, no one realistically thinks that the legislators are going to pay attention to me. But if others agree with any of these, and let all their legislators know about it, maybe something will get done. See you on Jan. 8 at 1 p.m., if it turns out the rumors are true. If not, send your suggestions to local legislators in writing.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Sweden. France. Denmark. Germany. Israel. Not only can your fourth-grader name them, theyve bested them. This from the National Center for Education Statistics, which recently released a pair of studies analyzing the reading, math and science achievements of students around the globe based on responses to tests produced by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement. One test the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study, or PIRLS evaluated students abilities to read for literary experience and acquire and use information theyve read, while another the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study, or TIMSS measured their mathematical and scientific abilities. Among the findings: Floridas fourth-graders scored above the U.S. average on PIRLS and, alongside Singapore, had more students performing at or above the advanced international reading benchmark than did the rest of the participating school systems around the world. In Florida and throughout the world, girls outperformed boys on PIRLS. In Florida, boys outperformed girls on TIMSS. On TIMSS, Florida had a higher percentage of students perform at or above international benchmarks than the international median. Another encouraging note: Floridas data came only from public school systems. Our states public schools and teachers have been harshly scrutinized by our Legislature and proponents of private schooling of late; these results show public education can and does work. Our teachers work will never be done, and our schools should always strive to improve. But in a state whose public education system has been marred by deep funding cuts, FCAT fiascos and perhaps a greater emphasis on metrics than results, these studies findings present us with a lesson worth memorizing: Our teachers are capable and our students willing, and when challenged, can rise above the rest of the world.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Fourth graders and test scores A legislative agenda for a new year Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Frustrated, at the leastThe latest mass shooting, I was going to say mass killing, that took place at Sandy Hook school, is as bizarre as anything I have ever heard. I didnt use the term mass killing because that title still goes to abortions. Even with all the inconsistencies it appears the investigation is over and closed because they found the body of a young mentally ill man that had apparently shot himself after seemingly shooting and killing 26 others. Nobody saw him do it, but that really doesnt seem to matter. The point is, at least the authorities say, an assault type weapon was used. The stage is now set. Since the gun free zone didnt work out to well for the victims, and so that this type of event never happens again, the guns must be removed from the hands of American citizens. And waiting in the wings, there are the peoples representatives in the federal government that relish the opportunity to accomplish the task. They, along with American citizens who back the gun ban, claim various reasons. We have seen written that the NRA is evil, and an enemy of the people. Guns are filthy. Guns kill. All kinds of indications, that the gun is the monster, and the individual little to do with it. Some, who back the ban, have called for killing the top officials in the NRA. There is little doubt that the issue of gun control is getting heated, and it seems to some that the facts dont matter. In China where gun control is complete, in 2010 there were four separate school attacks with a total of 18 killed. Weapons of choice were knifes and meat cleavers. In 2011 there was one child and three adults killed with an axe, while at another event box cutters were used to hurt eight children. Then we have the incident of Friday, Dec. 14, where a man wielding a knife attacked students at a school in central China, leaving 22 children and one adult injured. And lets not forget, Timothy McVeigh didnt use a gun. However he killed 168 innocent people and injured over 680. Of the 168 dead, 19 were children under the age of 6. But you can still buy fertilizer and fuel. Also, you can still rent trucks. Data from the U.S. Justice Departments Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that some 82,500 crimes across the nation are stopped by law-biding gun owners annually. Of course these statistics rarely, if ever, get national attention. Professor John R. Lott, interviewed on CNN after the Newtown massacre, noted, Every place in the world that we have crime data, both before and after a gun ban has gone into effect, every single place has seen an increase in murders after the ban has been put in place. And many times its been a several-fold or more increase. And theres a simple reason for that, and that is, when you ban guns, its basically the most-lawabiding citizens who turn in their guns, not the criminals. And rather than making it more difficult for criminals to commit crime, you actually make it easier. In 1982, the Kennesaw City Council unanimously passed a law requiring heads of households to own at least one firearm with ammunition. The ordinance states the gun law is needed to protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants. Then-councilman J.O. Stephenson said after the ordinance was passed, everyone went crazy. People all over the country said there would be shootings in the street and violence in homes, he said. Of course, that wasnt the case. In fact, according to Stephenson, it caused the crime rate in the city to plunge. Kennesaw Historical Society president Robert Jones said following the laws passage, the crime rate dropped 89 percent in the city, compared to the modest 10 percent drop statewide. The authorities brilliant ideas have created gun free zones. Thats where law-biding citizens carry no guns, but criminals go there to mass murder people because they know that they will be safe to carry out their plan. Who should be held responsible for those killings? Certainly the lawmakers hold some responsibility. These idiots seem to think if they make a law, to prevent something, it will work. If it did we would not need courts, judges, lawyers, juries, jails or prisons. So now I think the message is clear, at least for me. Do not infringe upon my rights.

The concept for this commandment comes from my oftquoted Leviticus 19, known as the Holiness Code: Neither should you stand by the blood of your neighbor. (Lev.19: 16) If a human beings life is in danger, one is obligated to do everything possible for the preservation of that life. One may violate the Sabbath, Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year, and even eat unkosher food if this will save a life. One may also travel on the Sabbath if this would help save a persons life. The donation of organs after death or from a living donor is also recognized by Judaism because of its life-saving measures. The chief Sephardic rabbi of Israel, Ovaday Yosef, has ruled that one can be a living donor as in the case of a kidney donation as long as the donors life is not put into jeopardy. This comes from the Jewish maxim that one life cannot be compromised for another. The famous and revered Rabbi Akiva ruled that when faced with such a dilemma, it is permissible to save ones one life based on the verse: Let him live by your side as your kinsman. Your life takes presentence over anothers. This situation is the difference one would find in a Jewish hospital. If the mother and child were in danger, all would be done to save the mother. In a Catholic hospital, the child would be saved. In the Jewish faith, one cannot be a martyr except in cases where one would be forced to commit adultery, incest or murder or idolatry. The preservation of human life transcends all the other commandments of Judaism. One cannot observe the other mitzvot without the blessing of life and health. Therefore Jews are commanded to preserve life in any way they can so that they may live by the commandments and not die by them. The obligation to save a life can take the form of saving someone from immediate danger such as drowning or saving someone from a situation that might prove life threatening in the future. I have taken upon myself the mitzvah of pekuach nefesh because I wish to raise awareness of a virulent type of breast cancer that is often misdiagnosed and is not usually presented with a lump or a calcification on a mammogram. The cancer I am referring to is called Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC and the campaign for its awareness is called Check for IBC. It strikes men as well as women and is the most aggressive (fast-growing) and deadly form of the disease. Though more rare than other forms, accounting for only 5 percent of breast cancers, speed in diagnosis and awareness of this form would make for pekuach nefesh, saving of a life. Symptoms of IBC include: increase in breast size; redness, rash or blotchiness resembling a bruise on the breast; lump or thickening or dimpling of the skin on the breast; warmth or tenderness of the breast; lymph node swelling under the arm or above the collarbone; flattening of the nipple or discharge from the nipple. Contrary to what most women have been taught, IBC can be painful and a single lump in the breast is not usually how this form of the disease presents itself.

I know the only thing that got me through the year was the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and boy is she graciously tenacious. I was sure everything would collapse and of course, several times I collapsed in my easy chair. It is a New Year, or so they tell us but I have my suspicions. After this latest episode with the Mayans calendar, I am not too sure what date it is or what year it is, for that matter. They certainly got everything wrong and I have my suspicions about the rest of it. How do we really know that January 1 is actually January 1? Moreover, how do we know what year it is exactly? I think somewhere along the line somebody has pulled a scam on civilization and has messed up our calendars. If the Mayans got it wrong, maybe we have it wrong also. Whatever day and whatever year it is I am going to celebrate the New Year. If I am wrong, I have a lot of company. When we celebrate the New Year, there is nothing new about it. Everything we did last year we are going to be doing this year only we will be one year older. Perhaps as we get older we forget about what we have done and think we are doing something new. Hooray for senility! I really do not care about that; my philosophy is, lets do it all over again. If it is worth doing the first time, it is worth doing again. This brings me to a great point, which is, some things are worth repeating while other things are not. It is trying to find out the difference between these two that makes life challenging. I do not mind repeating things if I am in charge of what I am repeating. I think we all should choose what we are going to repeat. For example, I wish I could choose a year to repeat. If I could repeat any year, it would be 1971. That year represents the greatest con in the history of mankind. I am not sure anything like it has ever happened before or since. That was the year I married a young lady who turned out to be the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. What bothers me about this is why did she really marry me? Was it my charm and good looks or did she think I was rich? There have been times I have wanted to query her on this very subject but then, I am always afraid she will tell me the truth. I do not mind the truth of it does not involve anything personally. I just will settle with the fact that that was the year I conned her into marrying me. We have been a great team ever since. She has kept me straight and I have given her opportunities to exercise that career, which she has become quite proficient. One of the great things resulting from this marriage is the fact that she has been faithful to point out my mistakes. Through her help, I discovered I have quite a few mistakes. I begin every year with a clean slate. I am able to celebrate January 1 with no mistakes whatsoever but then the next day my wife begins the ominous task of pointing out my mistakes. This is a joint effort, which leaves me out of joint often. I have a little theory along this line. I think that if it is a mistake you have made before it should not count anymore. I think the only thing that should be legitimate to point out are new mistakes. I find myself so busy practicing my old mistakes that I rarely get around to making new mistakes. All these years I have reveled in my old mistakes. Trying to find something new is a great strain on my little gray cells. At this point in my life, they are exhausted and are encouraging me to rely upon those old mistakes and give them a well-deserved rest. At my stage in life I think new is overrated and, if experience is anything, something new is always taxing and in more ways than one. Do not let the government find out that you have something new or Uncle Sam will come knocking at your door with a gentle request for tax money. There is an old saying that says insanity is doing the same things over and over expecting different results. Well, that does not describe me. I do not want different results. I like the results I have. I like doing the same thing over again because I know what to expect. And if ignorance in this area is bliss, I am the most blissful person on the planet. My challenge this year is to surprise my wife with some unexpected new mistakes. Just one! To get on the right track for the New Year, I start with the Bible. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away: behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). Instead of celebrating the New Year, I plan to celebrate that new creature in Christ. No mistake about it.Dr. James L.

On New Years Day many probably got up to a spouse saying, Wake up and smell the roses; the Rose Bowl Parade is on. After a night of celebrating the coming of 2013, perhaps with Four Roses, viewing a parade with its perfusion of all kinds of flowers may have been the best way to recover from a hangover. Much happened just a few days ago; read about it here.PartyingAt a New Year party we met many who churned out greetings. From a dairy farmer: Happy Moo Year! From Bugs Bunny: Hoppy New Year! From a cosmetic surgeon: Happy New Rear! From a woodsman: Happy Yew Near! From an aging flower child: Hippie New Year, man! From a game-show host: Happy Clue Year! From a sailor: Happy New Yaw! From a mechanic: Happy New Gear! From a rancher: Happy New Steer! From a jet pilot: Happy New Lear! From a cartographer: Mappy New Year! From another mechanic: Happy Lube Year! From a job counselor: Happy New Career! From an incessant talker: Happy Chew Yer Ear! From an orthopedist: Brace yourself for the New Year! From an attorney: Happy Sued Year! From a TV enthusiast: Happy Viewed Year! From a bartender: Happy Stewed Year!North Pole activitiesAfter Christmas, Santa and his reindeer got time for a rest. This gave Rudolph a chance to do something he had wanted for a long time. He made an appointment with a plastic surgeon because he was so sensitive about his long ears which were much more prominent than the ears of the other reindeer. So one week after Christmas, he let the good doctor do the reconstructive surgical procedure, and since that time, January 1 has been celebrated as New Ears Day. I think I heard that right.Poor Richards parade?A group of local homeless folks joined this years traditional parade of mimes and other performers on New Years Day in Philadelphia. They billed it as the mummers and the paupers.Tis the SeasonAt the typical New Years Day gathering, Mom yells, Get out of my kitchen! The grown kids yell at their tiny offspring, Stop running! Youll break Grandmas furniture! Dad yells, Get out of the way! I cant see the football game on TV! The little ones yell, Its my toy! Let me play with it! Thats why this time of year is known as the Holler Day Season.ShotsDo you realize that every New Years Eve 40,000 Americans go out to New Years Eve parties? These are staggering figures! Ive decided on my New Years Resolution. Beginning in March Im going to stop procrastinating. When I thought about the evils of drinking in the New Year, I gave up thinking. Last night at the bar I ordered a double. The bartender brought out a guy who looked just like me. The trouble with jogging is that the ice falls out of your glass. Gene drinks a toast on holidays, Heres to our holidays, all 365 of them! The satellite went into orbit on January 1st causing a new years revolution. Ive got great health insurance. If I get knocked on the head they pay me a lump sum. On New Years Day the caterpillar turned over a new leaf. Socialized Medicine is women at a party talking about their operations. Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account.Good intentionsOnce a year, the collectors of antique tents in Germany get together for a rally. This year the organizers decided to hold it in Meinz. Unfortunately, the local burghers took a dim view of so great an influx of tourists ruining their turf with tent pegs. The citizens organized themselves so thoroughly that they even had an anthem: Let Old and Quaint Tents Be Forgot and Never Brought to Meinz.Pun Alley resolutionTodays column would not be complete without some New Years resolutions. I recommend that you resolve to have more fun and laughs in the coming years. I resolve to try to help this along with Pun Alley every week.Oak Run residents Dick and Jane wish you a Happy New Year and trust that any resolution you make is not something that goes in one year and out the other.

Instead, return calls and emails, and explain why you need a zone of privacy for now. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Although your keen Bulls eyes usually can discern whats fact from whats faux, that upcoming decision will need really solid data before you can risk a commitment. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) As your confidence grows, you should be able to work toward your goals with more enthusiasm. Open your mind to suggestions. Some of them might even work for you. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Reconnecting with someone from your past stirs up that old sense of adventure. But before you do anything else, be sure to get answers to those stilllingering questions. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Some people might resent the way you plan to resolve a difficult situation. But your commitment to making tough but fair decisions soon wins you their respect and support. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Mixed signals could be causing that vexing workplace problem. Before you choose to leave the project, ask for a meeting so you can get things out in the open. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your good intentions could backfire if youre not careful with other peoples feelings. Try using persuasion, not pressure, to get others to see your side of the situation. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your dedication to finishing the task at hand is laudable. But be careful not to overdo the midnight oil bit. Take time for relaxation with someone very special. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Although your intuition will help you make some tough choices in the first half of the month, youll need more facts to back up your actions later on. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) All that hard work and research in the workplace finally pays off as you hoped it would. Ignore comments from jealous types who are out to get the Goat riled up. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) An unfair decision creates unnecessary problems. But avoid anger and move carefully as you work this out. Expect to get support from an unlikely source. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A fuzzy financial vista persists until midmonth, when things begin to clear up. Youll also gain a better perspective on how to handle those pesky personal problems. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a wonderful way of being there for those who need your help in difficult times. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

The Home Instead Senior Care office serving Marion County has moved to a new location, 606 S.W. 3rd Ave., Ocala. Owners of the local Home Instead Senior Care franchise, Jim and Mary Samuelson, said the move will allow their staff to better serve area families and meet the needs of a rapidly-growing senior population. The office currently employs six staff members and 70 CAREGiversSM who go into homes and, in some cases, care communities, to help seniors with their non-medical needs. More than just an office space, our new location will serve as a resource center for seniors and families in our community, Jim Samuelson said. We are planning a regular schedule of educational programs for family caregivers to help them cope with the challenges they might face while caring for an older loved one. The first educational workshop will include information about Alzheimers disease and other dementias. It will be held from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 17 at the new Home Instead Senior Care office location. Interested Business Business that serves seniors moves office participants should call to reserve 352-622-6447 to reserve a space. A recent study conducted by Home Instead Senior Care found that 86 percent of older Americans want to age in place, remaining in their homes after retiring. Home Instead Senior Care provides services to seniors wherever they might call home: private or rental residences, assisted-living facilities and care centers. The companys CAREGivers help clients maintain their independence by assisting with activities of daily living such as meal preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, running errands, medication reminders and providing companionship. Our services are designed for any living arrangement where an older adult simply needs human interaction or help with day-to-day activities, Samuelson said. Services are available from just a few hours a day up to 24 hours, seven days a week including weekends and holidays. For more information about services or the Family Caregiver Workshops, call 352-622-6447 or visit the companys website at www.homeinstead.com/612. If you are a caregiver of a loved one with Dementia or Alzheimers disease, or have been recently diagnosed with the disease, Emeritus Ocala West would like to invite you to our monthly support groups. In addition to peer support, the groups will also invite specialists in the field who can answer questions about Dementia and Alzheimers disease, its causes, how a diagnosis is made and current research, as well as coping mechanisms for caregivers. Emeritus Ocala West staff will be available to discuss our unique Join Their Journey Program. There is no cost to attend this group and everyone who is living with a friend or family member with Dementia or Alzheimers is encouraged to attend. Support groups are the second Tuesday of each month from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. or the last Thursday of every month from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Please contact Tanja Papa, Memory Care Director at 352-861-4444 for more information. Emeritus Ocala West is at 9070 S.W. 80th Ave., Ocala. Alzheimers caregivers can join support group Read the classifieds

So many doctors misdiagnose this form of cancer so being proactive is essential. Inflammatory Breast Cancer does its malevolence by traveling through the lymph system. IBC cells block the lymph vessels in the skin of the breast therefore causing the signature redness and inflamed areas, which give the disease its name. Unlike other forms of breast cancer, this variety grows in nests or sheets instead of a confined solid tumor making detection on a mammogram unreliable for finding this form of the disease. A doctors clinical exam or biopsy or breast ultrasound are also used in diagnosis. I am making my readers aware of this insidious form of cancer because it is so often misdiagnosed. It can appear like a breast infection but if after five days of treatment with no improvement, IBC should be looked into. It can come on quickly, often overnight. By the time it is finally recognized, the disease has advanced to stage IIIB with a five-year survival rate of 40 percent. IBC is treated with chemotherapy, surgery (usually a mastectomy) and radiation. Depending on the composition of the tumor, hormonal therapy using Herceptin, may be employed. Everyone is individual and success of treatment varies with individuals. New treatments and drugs have turned breast cancer in general into a chronic disease, no longer the death sentence of 30 years ago. Still the public needs to be made aware so that lives can be saved. In the Talmud is says that whoever saves a life; it is as if they have saved a world. If I have made one person aware of this disease, I may have saved a life. Maybe even my own.

THE MIDDLESTEINS By Jami Attenberg As the clever book jacket suggests with its fries, burgers, and shakes, someone in the Middlestein family has an eating disorder and not just an ordinary one but the grand opera of eating disorders. In time we learn that retired Chicago lawyer Edie Middlestein has finally tipped the scales at 332 and her patient husband who always liked a little meat on a woman has had enough and has walked out. Diabetic and facing a second round of surgery on her legs, Edie still cant curb her appetite. Food is the one thing that never lets her down. She ate because she loved to eat. She knew she loved to eat, that her heart and soul felt full when she felt full. Meanwhile, family members go on with their lives. Husband Richards on the prowl while he still has a shot at love with a more agile partner. His search leads to humiliating, eyeopening senior citizen dating scenes. It seems that everyone has given up on Edie except her skinny daughter-in-law Rachelle whos obsessed with saving her. She stalks her through an afternoon of fast-food drivethrus, culminating in a Chinese restaurant where Edies greeted as a returning hero. This mordant comedy in which a character eats herself to death might have been simply creepy from a less talented writer. But Attenbergs dysfunctional Jewish family struggles to keep on loving each other even in their most unlovely Dysfunctional family struggles BOOK MARK P WPat Wellington moments. And although she does not defend Edies choices or make her cute and cuddly, she gives us in this character a woman who is all too real in her helplessness before lifes temptations. In contrast to the doomed matriarch there is plenty to laugh about including dope-smoking son Bennys angst about his twins upcoming bnai mitzvah involving hip-hop lessons and chocolate fountains. At the heart of the novel are every familys interactions and divergent needs. If the book jumps around a bit, author Attenberg compensates by making us care enough about her Middlesteins to keep on reading. Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Obituary Glenn D.

BY MIKE ROPPEL Karen Vega from Ocala Autism Support Network (OASN) saw DClowns from On Top of the World face painting at the Sheriffs Office Halloween party and invited the group to participate in the Christmas party at College Road Baptist Church on Dec. 15.

Sholom Park will be graced by the theatre company in April for a production of Charlottes Web open to the public. The date and time are not available yet but check with Kim from time to time. After lunch was served, Santa came in and went on the stage to pass out colorfully wrapped presents. The youngsters went up to sit on Santas lap and get their presents by age/grade groups. Karen and her staff really appreciate all that the sponsors did for OASN so the party was a great success for the second year. More information about DClowns can be obtained from Paula Magen at 352-873-3433 when she is not clowning around or involved with her many other activities. Boy and girl clowns are welcome to join.

Kuhn was a candidate for sheriff when allegations of misconduct with a married woman were made. Kuhn, who is also married, was alleged to have used a sheriff's vehicle during the affair. Kuhn dropped out of the race after he had won the primary. Chris Blair, who had lost to Kuhn, replaced him as the Republican candidate, and easily won the election in November. The following was the message from Dean: Based upon the findings in the Dan Kuhn Internal Affairs Report, I am reinstating to active duty Deputy Robert Youmans. As to Major David Sperring and Captain Chip Wildy, they will remain on suspension until I have had sufficient time to thoroughly consider an appropriate response to the sustained findings concerning their involvement in the Dan Kuhn matter. In the meantime, however, I am willing to consider Major Sperrings and Captain Wildys letters of resignation and early retirement in view of their length of service with the Sheriffs Office. As to Dan Kuhn, who has already resigned, it is my understanding that the State Attorneys Office has declined to file criminal charges against Dan Kuhn for the sustained findings of misconduct. Therefore, in an effort to finalize this matter, I have requested our outside accountants and our fiscal department to calculate the amount of Dan Kuhns salary, benefits and any expenses incurred by the Sheriffs Office during any documented period of time when on duty misconduct by Dan Kuhn was occurring or whenever Sheriffs Office facilities or vehicles were involved. I have further requested that such costs and expenses incurred by the Sheriffs Office be deducted from any money which may be due to Dan Kuhn, together with an additional deduction for the cost of the Internal Affairs investigation. Kuhn faces expenses, but no criminal case Just clowning around From the left, Paula Magen (Sunflower), Dotty Baird (Penny), and Katie White (Goofy) are getting ready for the youg and not so young to get a design painted on their cheek or have a removable tattoo applied by Katherine Anshewitz (not in picture).

Citizens Academy Class of 2012 graduate Denise Azis said that the program answered a lot of questions that affect everyday life. I have a better understanding of how the essential 911 service works. I can better appreciate what the fire and rescue people do. I also understand the solid waste and utilities she said. Its also good knowing where the various sites are located, and I know that if I called any of them (county staff) with a question, they would be kind and helpful. Fellow Class of 2012 grad Rich Lambrecht noted that as a supervisor of his local community development district, he is frequently contacted by neighbors who have questions about government services and responsibilities the answers often involve Marion County government. He encourages others to take part in the program. Marion County residents or business owners ages 18 and older are eligible to attend.
