BRIEFS Coalition to hear from Laura ByrnesThe State Road 200 Coalition will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, Jan. 14, at the Collins Health Resource Center, Building 300, Suite 303, TimberRidge Medical Park, on Southwest 110th Street off State Road 200 in Ocala. The meeting begins at 1 p.m. with refreshments available at 12:30. Laura Byrnes of Workforce Connection will be the speaker. The meeting is open to the public. Woman who killed baby has diedA 20-year-old Ocala woman allegedly shot and killed her 6-month-old son on Friday, then reportedly turned the gun on herself. The mother, Melanie Reyes, survived the shooting, but was put on life support and died Tuesday morning. Marion County deputies responded to 4836 N.W. 45th Court in a development called the Fountains, off Northwest 44th Avenue, approximately one mile north of the Quail Meadow entrance. Arriving about 11:15 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 4, they had been dispatched to do a well-being check. Family members had called 911 to report Reyes had posted a statement on her Facebook page indicated she was going to shoot her child and herself. When deputies arrived, they found Reyes and her baby, Jonah Mendoza, 6 months, with gunshot wounds. Both were transported to the hospital. The baby died from his injuries. A handgun was recovered from the home and detectives are confident it was the gun used by Reyes in the shooting. No one else was at the house at the time. The boys father, Jordan Mendoza, is living elsewhere.

BY JIM CLARK Editor Area residents armed with statements against homeowner associations and developers came to Tuesdays Marion County Legislative Delegation ready to do battle, but a state senators comments at the opening of the meeting quickly let them know they would get little satisfaction. The delegation gathered at the Klein Center at Central Florida Community College for the five-hour meeting as a crowd composed mostly of representatives of local agencies filled the room. State Sen. Alan Hays, who represents Southeastern Marion, obviously had seen the several people on the agenda and their topic, and immediately let them know the facts. Hays said he was astounded at the last delegation meeting when he heard the vocal complaints. We took it on, he said of the people in Tallahassee, but we have yet to solve the problem, which he called gargantuan. It cannot be retroactive, you cant roll the calendar back and say you cant do that, Hays told the audience. We ran into brick walls, and some of them were reinforced. Hays added, Were still striving to solve the problem. It was about three hours later before the list of homeowners who had signed up to speak got to the podium. By then, State Sen. Charlie Dean, who at the start of the meeting had been elected chairman, was cracking down on the four-minute speaking limit. First up was Don Kronen, who said he had appeared before the delegation 16 months ago. Im very disappointed to be here again. Kronen said that lives have been devastated, finances decimated of many residents of developments.

Since 1999, more than 170 law enforcement officers in the United States have died and thousands injured in a crash as a result of being on the side of the roadway doing their job. During the month of January, Florida Highway Patrol troopers will pay special attention to drivers violating the states Move Over law. The Move Over law protects law enforcement officers, emergency workers and tow truck drivers who are stopped along Florida roadways doing their jobs. Floridas Move Over law was enacted to protect those trying to protect Floridas motorists, said Col. David Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol. Our troopers are out on the roadways every day working to reduce traffic crashes and fatalities. Motorists need to understand the Move Over law and abide by the law for everyones safety. Understanding Move Over: Drivers must move over when a patrol car, emergency vehicle and/or tow truck is stopped on the side of a road with lights flashing. If they cannot move over safely, drivers shall slow down to a speed of 20 mph below the posted speed limit. Troopers focus on Move Over Law PLEASESEEMOVE PAGE3 000DPZW

The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you are escorted by two of the children to their classroom.

Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures in the wonderful world of books.

Friday, January 11, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, January 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be hurt by a colleagues harsh criticism. But dont let it shake your confidence in what youre trying to do. A more positive aspect starts to appear by weeks end. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Youre torn between your sensible self and the part of you that enjoys acquiring lovely things. Best advice: Wait for an end-of-month sale, and then buy something wonderful. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your artistic side has practical applications this week, such as redecorating your home or redesigning your personal stationery. Whatever you do, someone special will like it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You could be drawn into a problem twixt friends or family members. Best bet: Ask the questions that go to the heart of the matter, then get them all together for a group hug. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) As much as you love being the center of attention, your big Lions heart impels you to share the spotlight with a colleague who helped you with that wellpraised project. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your eagerness to act on a challenge is wisely tempered early in the week by a lack of necessary information. Things begin to clear up during the weekend. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A relationship youd hoped would keep going seems to be going nowhere. Close it out and move on to a brighter romantic aspect just beginning to manifest itself. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Things dont go completely as planned this week. But enjoy the surprises, even if you have to adjust your schedule. Some of them could be quite delightful. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Making choices is usually easy for straightshooting Archers. But a new development could deflect your aim. Try to put off decisions until you know more. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) While part of you might prefer taking a more familiar path, let your more daring and admit it super-curious self see what the unexplored has to offer. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Those nasty types have slithered back under the rocks and present no more problems. Nows the time to move ahead on that promising new relationship. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A new offer could clear up that lingering money problem. Also, a more confident attitude on your part might well help get that personal situation back on track. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of turning chaos into order. Youre also generous with your help for those who seek it. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

O ur first meeting of the New Year will take place on Thursday, Jan. 17, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. This would be a good meeting for anyone with a companion animal to attend, since our guest speaker will be from the University of Florida Pet Emergency Center. This is the off hours animal emergency hospital located by the Paddock Mall that opened over the summer. If you would like to know more about them, this is an opportunity for you to get information and ask questions. Our meetings are always open to guests; it is not necessary to be an SPCA member. Anyone wishing to send us a donation or a letter by mail should note that we have a new mailing address. Please send your correspondence to: SPCA of Marion County, 11100 S.W. 93rd Court Road, Suite 10115, Ocala FL 34481. Our phone number remains the same at 352-362-0985 if you have any questions or need our help. Adoption NewsWe are trying to help Pet Network place a 10-monthold puppy named Jackson. He is probably an Australian Shepherd/Lab mix. Right now he is 35 pounds, but should fill out to about 40 to 50 pounds at adulthood. Jackson is a great dog sweet and friendly with two levels of obedience training under his belt already, with the certificates to prove it. Jackson was adopted as a young puppy from a kill shelter to be a companion to an old dog. Such a young, active dog turned out to be too playful for the older dog. The family did not wish to return him to the kill shelter, so Mary at Pet Network took him in. Jackson is house, leash, and crate trained, and gets along well with other dogs, although it may be best if he is the only dog in the household.

An analogy is a partial likeness between two things when compared. During the December holiday season we were deluged with predictions and nonsense about the fiscal cliff, and the end of the world, threatening concerns for our nation and the planet. According to Congress and the White House, the fiscal cliff is located in Washington, D.C. We experienced months of national anxiety that falling off the governments financial cliff would have dire consequences for every bank and stock exchange in the world. Similarly threatening was completion of The Great Maya Cycle, known more disturbingly as the end of the world according to the Mayan calendar. One positive aspect of reaching the end of the Mayan calendar is www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, January 11, 2013 T he quarterly reading of the names of recently deceased veterans never fails to be impressive. Last Saturday, a few hardy souls gathered in Veterans Memorial Park in Ocala, amid cool temperatures and a cooler wind chill, to honor those veterans who died during the last three months of 2012. If youve never been to the ceremony, its worth a trip. Its held the first Saturday of each quarter at the park, and features an opening prayer, some music, usually by a church group, and a 21gun salute by members of the Sheriffs Department. But the most important moments come during the reading of the names. Each veterans name is read, followed by the date of death and his branch of service. Non-stop during the readings is a somber drum roll, and as the reader pauses after each name, a bell is rung twice. Those are the only noises you hear as the crowd sits silently through the event. Some handkerchiefs wipe the eyes occasionally, especially as those who are there for the first time hear the name of a loved one. This is the 10th year of the quarterly ceremony, which means it was taking place when my father died in 2004. Unfortunately, I was working out of town at the time and was unaware of the fledgling event. Had I known, I certainly would have been there, and it would have provided me with a memory that would exist for the rest of my days. What makes the ceremony even more powerful is the setting. The park sits at the corner of Fort King Street and 25th Avenue East, within view of Silver Springs Boulevard, behind the Veterans Service Office. Its a beautiful venue, with paths and benches, monuments, displays, and a large grass setting in the center. The benches are placed in memory of various veterans whose names are inscribed on the front of the seats. There are other ways that local veterans are remembered. There is also an area where those from the county who were killed in action are listed. It was announced Saturday that Markie T. Sims, who was recently killed in Afghanistan, would be added to that list. Sims in-laws were at Saturdays ceremony. Someday when you have a little time, take a trip over and just wander through the park, which is wheelchair-friendly. Youll find yourself deep in thought about those who are honored by this facility. There are other regular events at the park. The next one comes up on Sunday, Feb. 3, at 3 p.m. to honor The Four Chaplains, four who gave their lives to save others. Yes, I know Feb. 3 is Super Bowl Sunday, but the game isnt until after 6 in the evening, so go ahead out to the park. You wont regret it. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

T he headline in a New York newspaper talked about how a woman who lost two sons on 9/11 was upset with the 67 members of the U.S. House of Representatives who voted against aid for Hurricane Sandy. She has a right to be. One of Marion Countys representatives, Ted Yoho of Gainesville, was one of those who cast a negative vote. It was not an auspicious start for the newly sworn-in Republican congressman from Gainesville, the man who defeated Cliff Stearns. Yoho reportedly said he was sticking by his principles of not having the federal government involved in this type of situation. While his principle may be praised by many, there is no alternative in place to help the people of the New York area, some of whom are still living in tent cities. Yoho should instead work to establish methods by which the states and cities can help refugees of a disaster such as Sandy. Only when such aid is available should he take the attitude that the federal government shouldnt be helping those folks. The people in New York have a right to remind the 67 representatives that federal funds are partially their money, and voting not to give it back to them when its desperately needed is withholding from the victims what is their due. The new congressman showed a lack of compassion in his vote. He has already taken on the label of rebel after casting a vote for Eric Cantor over John Boehner for Speaker of the House, one of only nine votes Cantor, who wasnt even running for the position, received. Now hes being labeled worse than a rebel for his choice to vote against those who need help up north. Someday, because of our geography, we could be the ones seeking aid after a hurricane. We have to wonder what our rebel would do then. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Yoho puts politics ahead of humanity Reading of vets names impressive Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Why our world has yet to come to an end Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED that it would be less painful for politicians than a collapse of banks and stock exchanges. With their last breaths politicians could shout proudly It wasnt our fault! The president and Congress would have us believe they pulled us back from the fiscal cliff during a New Years Eve chorus of Auld Lang Syne. Congress is fond of seemingly heroic, last-minute rescues. In reality Congress and the president just kicked the can down the road again. They didnt even back the fiscal bus off the cliff. The end of financial stability is already on their 2013 calendar. Within 10 years, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid will be 50 percent of the federal budget. Add defense spending and payment of interest on the national debt, and there wont be much budget left for pork-barrel spending. Congress and the White House have a persistent fantasy that there is no limitation to American prosperity as long as they can borrow more trillions of dollars from countries which have built great wealth by selling their products in the United States. Is it possible some similar financial crisis happened to the highly developed Mayan civilization and caused their 15 million citizens to disappear from the planet around 900AD never to be heard of again? After centuries of discussion among anthropologists, archeologists, astronomers, historians, and linguists, the current consensus is that climate change destroyed the Mayan civilization. Environmentalists and Al Gore must be ecstatic. There may be an alternative explanation, which the scholars didnt consider. Our first thought was that perhaps the Mayan calendar came to an end on Dec. 21, 2012 because the writers ran out of paper. However, the Mayans didnt print calendars. They carved them in stone. Maybe they ran out of rocks because they built too many government pyramids. Our conclusion is that strife between political parties was the most likely cause of the mysterious end of the Mayan civilization. Mayapublicans, whose supporters created the wealth of the Mayans, probably adjourned for a holiday and never returned. Within a few decades, the dogoody Mayacrats ran out of money and went in search of the Mayapublicans. They too never returned. Some things never change. Read the classifieds No need to pretend Are your ears and eyes open? Can you hear the clicking, clicking, clicking of the price going up even as you are filling up at the gas pump? The election is over, no need to pretend any longer. The useful idiots have performed perfectly. They have come through with flying colors. No further need of the charade. Did you just see that 2 percent tax just slip away out of your paycheck? He said he would raise taxes. You did not believe him? Next on the agenda: the rise in insurance premiums, did you get yours? Medical costs will be next. More taxes, next. Where will it end? Useful idiots are not a myth, or a joke, they are for real. The useful idiot in chief tells them so, and they believe everything that is said. Including the lies. Keep on believing useful idiots believe yourself straight into slavery. You are begging for it. Just remember, you have been warned. The world is so much bigger than your little circle. Do not take my word for it, pick up a book, and read something for yourself. My I suggest you try the Constitution and the Bill of Rights for starters. Then try The Law by Frederic Bastiat, only 70 pages. D.I. Larson Ocala Mental health All the stories following the massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and six adults were killed by a deranged young man, have been tales of people going back and forth on the gun issue. Should we outlaw assault weapons? Should be outlaw individual possession of guns? Should be arm our teachers (a terrible idea, makes it easier for a kid in a classroom to grab a gun and start shooting)? There should be more focus on the mental health issues. In this case, what makes a young man prepare and carry out a mission to kill a bunch of defenseless little children in classrooms at an elementary school. The system needs to worry about identifying potential offenders and getting them treatment. Parents need to take responsibility, too. This killers mother fostered violence by providing the guns, and then she herself was killed by one of them. Instead of disarming the people, how about trying a cure instead? Maybe that will save some lives. Charles Thomas Ocala

Performing Arts CompanyPerforming Arts Company is now in its second week of rehearsals and included in the cast are Diane and Frank Porterfield in the roles of Vera and Jesus. The Porterfields moved to Oak Run some 19 years ago and have been very active in the theatre groups as cast members, directors and producers. Frank is a past president of both groups of the newly merged performing arts company and Diane has served on both boards. They have been involved in 17 plays and Diane has directed 14 of them. Diane is one of the rare, native, Floridians while Frank is from Michigan. Their past theatre experience is vastly different. Diane has been involved since preschool days, whereas Franks only experience was a small part in the 8th grade in HMS Pinafore, his only other experience was as a writer. While serving a tour of duty in the Army in Alaska he tried his hand at writing short stories, none of which were ever published. After moving to Oak Run Dianes love of theatre was rekindled when she learned of the local Way Off Broadway and Little Theatre clubs. She lured Frank into taking a part in Bedside Manor which she was directing, after the person playing the role of a female dietitian took sick and had to drop out. What she hadnt told him was that he had to play the role as a woman!! He was hooked; the greasepaint was in his blood. Each week we will try and interest our potential audiences with tidbits about other cast and crew members. Please try and get your tickets early for the best seating. If you cannot make one of the scheduled public ticket sales you can make purchases by phoning Shari Weber at 352-854-0116 for the dinner show and Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 for all other shows. Reading Volunteer GroupLove to read? Love kids? Our Reading Volunteer Group is looking for enthusiastic people to visit two of our local elementary schools and read to the lower grades.

Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures in the wonderful world of books. Call Addie Bambridge at 352-533-8666 to sign up or for more information. Car pooling is available for Oak Run residents, although anyone is welcome to join.

Friday, January 11, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, January 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I t was just before New Years and the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were relaxing after a busy week of toil and labor. Not paying much attention to my surroundings, I had immersed myself in a favorite book. As far as I am concerned, nothing compares to a favorite book when you are trying to relax and unwind. I turned the page and happened to notice on the other side of the room my wife was all a twitchy. I have seen this behavior before and I knew she was anxious to say something. I pretended not to notice. Finally, it was as if she exploded. I cant wait for the New Year. Arent you excited? I answered in the affirmative to try to keep the conversation as minimal as possible. No, I mean arent you really excited about the New Year? I knew if I was going to get back to my book I would have to let her say, what was on her mind. According to her, the approaching New Year was going to be spectacular. Everything old, she explained to me, would be new again. We have been in this New Year for a couple of weeks now and, I will not contradict my wife, at least aloud, but this New Year looks suspiciously like the Old Year. I am not quite sure what she thought would be different this year, but to me it is just the old year run through again. And, that is good with me. I am not one of these persons who needs the latest flash in the pan. I quite prefer the tried and true. It was about two weeks after the New Year and my wife said, Ill be back in an hour or two, Im going shopping. It did not dawn on me at the time but about 10 minutes later, it did. The reason my wife was so excited about the New Year was that she was going to go out and buy some new clothes. After all, according to her calculations, the New Year deserves new clothing. I smiled as I thought about her going to the store trying on dresses, seeking one that would fit her both in size and in fancy. As for me, I am quite comfortable in my old clothes. They fit me just fine, thank you. Women have to look fine all the time. Men, on the other hand are not that particular about what they wear. I can wear the same shirt for days on end and feel just as comfortable as the first day I put it on. My clothing does not make me feel any younger. I go along with the saying that says you are only as old as you feel. Of course, I do have some of those Methuselah moments. Everything old was once new and if new last very long it ends up being old. Therefore, whatever is old was once new and whatever is new will one day be old. This is where most people make their mistake. They fail to see the relationship between old and new. For example, as much as our culture pretends to be youth oriented, it does everything to get old while looking young. I often have this conversation with my wife. I am not old, I am just getting older and my plans are to get older and older and older. The great object in life is to get as old as you possibly can while looking and feeling new. Nothing to me is sillier than a 40 year old trying to act 20. The mind may say 20, but the body really knows it is 40. If people would put the money they spend to look young in a 401(k) their golden years would truly be golden. How much money is spent each year on plastic surgery? What I want to know is, who in the world do they think they are fooling? Their mirror? Right after the New Years celebration, I got up one morning feeling terrific. There was a bounce in my step, a giggle on my tongue; I was feeling like I was 20 something. I had not felt this good since I cannot remember how long. Then it happened. No matter how good you might feel some day, there is always something or someone who can undermine that and put you in your proper place. My mistake was going into the bathroom. There in the bathroom for all the world to see, especially me is this ghastly object called a mirror. When I looked into the mirror, I was shocked to see I was not alone. I thought I had come into the bathroom by myself but there in the mirror was this old guy I hardly recognized. My first reaction was to ask him to leave the bathroom and then I noticed So this is what new really looks like something. That person in the mirror was me! All of those exhilarating feelings dissipated as reality grabbed hold of my soul and soundly shook me. In my Bible reading that morning, I read what the apostle Paul said. And be renewed in the spirit of your minds; and that she put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4:23-24 KJV). Only God, in His wisdom, can create in me something that is truly new.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

But dont rush to call her lucky. She heard a piercing whistle, felt the building shake, and then was engulfed by a fireball blasted from the elevator bank. Running from the tower in flames, she hurled herself on a patch of grass where a stranger put out her fire and covered her with his jacket. From the start Manning took charge of her own recovery. Knowing that St. Vincents Hospital, where she was taken, was not equipped to treat the burns that covered 82 percent of her body, she repeatedly asked to be transferred to Weill Cornell Medical Centers burn unit. Days later her request was honored and she began learning to live again. After the books dramatic opening we learn about Mannings privileged but uneventful life that scarcely prepared her for the ordeal shed face for almost 10 years. Through the haze of pain and skin grafts, the ever-present threat of infection she keeps asking husband Greg about her friends at Cantor Fitzgerald. Weeks pass and finally shes told that 638 of the companys employees had perished. Her reaction is that of an avenging angel swearing to get those bastards yet knowing that revenge is a job for others. The scrappiness that propelled her to success in her career would serve her well in recovering. In time she even began devising ways to beat her injuries. Pain was my opponent: I studied it and anticipated the ways it would try to take me down. When she was well enough, she and Greg told their story over and over againto the New York Times, to Katie Couric on the Today Show and to Oprah Winfrey. Greg, too, escaped death that fateful day. He was scheduled to attend a breakfast at Windows on the World but helped out a friend at the last minute. Despite their extensive coverage the distinction of Mannings memoir lies in her aggressive insistence on her own dignity and independence.

It brings to mind many memories of when I worked in the big apple. Really?Probably the most famous street in New York is Broadway, a name that is synonymous with Theater. The street name derives from an incident in the early days, when an opera diva, a Valkyrie type, stood outside the opera house and a passing theatergoer asked, How much does that broad weigh? Central ParkEven if you like New York, it can do things to a person. Ten years ago, this guy was a prominent judge in Manhattan; now, hes a wino living in Central Park. But out of respect people still say, May I approach the bench? A trainee for the Police Department was asked this hypothetical question: If your beat was a lonely path in Central Park, and a beautiful young girl rushed up to you and declared that a strange man had suddenly grabbed, hugged and kissed her, what would you do? The police-officer-intraining replied without hesitation, I would endeavor to reconstruct the crime. When the police were called one night to arrest a group of mimes giving a hotfoot to any man found sleeping on a bench in Central Park, the officer in charge explained to a new recruit, These are the mimes that fry mens soles. At an outdoor production of Julius Caesar, the people in Central Park were enthralled, but when Caesar was stabbed, about half the audience left. They didnt want to get involved. SubwaysThe New York subway system, alone of all the mass transit systems of the world, has maps inside rather than outside the trains. It forces you to get on the wrong train in order to find out where youre going. You decipher the map to discover that the first step in reaching your destination is to get off the wrong train at the next stop. According to some people, the reason a subway had to be built to Brooklyn was so the people who lived there could get home without being seen. There were six million fewer passengers in the New York subway last year. Nobody noticed. John was sitting on the subway and when a man came over, he said, Are you reading the paper? John replied, Yes, stood up, turned the page, and sat down again. TravelsA commuter is one who has a complaint of long standing. Its very difficult to get a parking ticket in NYC; first you have to find a place to park. If you hit them, you have to fill out a report, explained a taxi driver as he skillfully missed a pedestrian. Any time four New Yorkers get into a cab without arguing, a bank robbery has just taken place. The population of New York keeps going up. There are so many tollbooths on roads leading out of the city nobody can afford to leave. In New York City the only thing worse than raining cats and dogs is hailing taxis. The reporter asked, Now that youre living in the suburb, what do you miss most? The last train home, replied the commuter.A home run A man left Rome and came to New York where he worked as a cook in an Italian restaurant near Yankee Stadium. He became an avid baseball fan and for a brief period, left his job to become an umpire. He soon realized that his real future was in cuisine and he opened his own restaurant near the stadium. He was very successful and became renowned for his chicken risotto. Edward Gibbon wrote about the story in the epic Rice and Fowl of the Roman Umpire.Tall taleThe guide said, That is a skyscraper. A little old English lady tourist said, Oh, my. Id love to see it work! War of the wordsTwo trucks loaded with a thousand copies of Rogets Thesaurus collided as they left a New York publishing house last Thursday, according to the Associated Press. Witnesses were stunned, startled, aghast, taken aback, stupefied, amazed, astounded, and unsettled. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Thats OK a love of New England is all you need! A fun time was had by everyone who attended the New England Club social in the Arbor Club Ballroom on Dec. 20. It was an afternoon of Christmas music, games, and a fabulous Christmas dinner cooked and served by the board members. Following dinner, there was a scrumptious display of desserts supplied by many generous members. Needless to say, at the end of the day everyone rolled out of there with full bellies. Everyone participated in a Christmas sing-a-long, led by Martha Gray; Dick Gray played the piano. The Grays were a very lively and fun addition to our day! Lots of laughs were had during the re-gifting swap and each person was handed their gift by the clubs very own Santa Claus. Its amazing how many people like to sit on Santas lap! Thank you Santa!

A capacity crowd gathered at the clubhouse to enjoy a wide variety of finger foods; be entertained by the fantastic band, Rainbow Connection; and count down the hours and minutes of the New Year while sipping Champagne with friends and neighbors. When residents pulled up to the clubhouse, they were met by Rich Becotte, who met them with a warm handshake and held the door while they entered the beautifully decorated facility. Once inside, Eve Houghtaling greeted every guest and made them feel welcome while Monica Becotte dispensed 50/50 tickets as she collected each persons admission ticket. Two long tables held a delightful array of sweets; cheeses; veggies; fruits; crackers and tea sandwiches. There was something for everyones taste and appetite. There was no shortage of these goodies that were enjoyed by all. The fantastic band, Rainbow Connection, played a wide variety of music giving everyone the opportunity to dance up a storm and dance they did. Everything from the Chicken Dance to an impromptu chorus line dancing to the strains of New York New York was seen on our dance floor with everything in between. Big Band era music mixed with early Rock n Roll blended with Show Tunes and wrapped up in Pop. Musically, the entertainment was just plain terrific and there was something for everyone as they listened and danced the hours away. At around 11, just one hour before the magic hour of midnight, Eve and Rich held the 50/50 drawings and the winning ticket was chosen for the door prize. Our winner was Judy Mandziara. As the hour clicked away, those gathered got another unexpected treat. Ruth and Richard Hurleys daughter, Susan, was visiting from her home state of Arizona. Little did any of us know that Susan had just received her Doctorate from the University of Arizona in Musical Arts. Her Major is in Voice Performance and she was kind enough to grace us with a song. Susan sang Memories, the theme song from the smash musical hit Cats. From the first note she struck, the audience was mesmerized. Every word; every note; every inflection of that music was right on; to the point of leaving the crowd breathless. When she finished the final refrain, the roof nearly came down with the applause of a standing ovation by every single person present. Impressive doesnt even begin to describe the beauty of Susans voice or her limitless talent. Moments later, the room was filled with the sound of popping corks reminiscent of the Boston Pops atmosphere. 2012 was quickly coming to an end and the anticipation of the New Year was electric in those gathered. The band began the traditional countdown, the clock struck 12 and the strains of Auld Lang Syne rang out. Well wishes swept the room with kissing; laughter; hugs and smiles. 2013 had arrived and had been lovingly welcomed. We know that whatever the New Year may bring, we at Cherrywood will embrace it or endure it together as not only a community; but as a family. Happy New Year!Karaoke Night Saturday, Jan. 12 at 7 p.m., join your friends and neighbors at the clubhouse for another rousing night of Karaoke fun. Bring your voices and your own refreshments and come on out for an enjoyable evening of watching and listening to people amaze and astound you or daze you; (Im sure there will be some of both at this fun night). Everyone is welcome to step up to the microphone and sing their favorite songs for the enjoyment of the rest of us. Bill LaVertue and company have over 40,000 songs to choose from so youre sure to find one that you know.

If youre looking for an inexpensive evening of really good entertainment, come down to the clubhouse for Karaoke Night. Everyone is welcome to sing and if you are shy, ask your friends to join you or invite the crowd to sing along. Theres no judging and no prizes; just good times. Camera Club There is no Camera Club on Friday the 18th of January. The next meeting will be held on Friday, Feb. 1. Everyone who has any interest in photography is encouraged to come to the library on that date and share your knowledge and experience with the rest of us. George Hamilton and ElvisThe next big event for Cherrywood is on Saturday, Jan. 26, when two monster talents team up on our stage. Dave Atkins does an Elvis Tribute that will have you convinced that Elvis is alive and well here in Ocala. Reputed to be one of the top Elvis Tribute specialists in the country, Dave will entertain with a wide variety of hits from the King of Rock & Roll. Not only does Dave have the fantastic voice of the King but he also has all the moves and style. A virtual look alike of the famous Elvis, Dave keeps the audience going with all the tunes that were part of our lives. Many a fond memory will be evoked by Daves show as well as an all around good time. The second huge talent appearing that night is George Hamilton IV. George has been a long time member of the Grand Old Opry and his many world tours earned him the name of International Ambassador of Country Music. Georges life time ambition to be a rock-a-billy star led him and his family to Nashville in 1959. The next year his record, A Rose and a Baby Ruth hit Gold Record status. In February of 1960, George became an official member of the Opry and the rest, as they say, is history. Abilene; Fort Worth, Dallas or Houston and Before This Day Ends were just a few of the big songs that made it on the charts for George in the years that followed. Now, much to our pleasure, both Dave and George will be appearing on our stage for one great night of entertainment. Tickets are nearly gone for this performance so see Geri ASAP to get your tickets for only $5 per person and to reserve your place in the clubhouse.

Sports SundaySee the notices posted in the clubhouse for information on the upcoming February 3rd Sports Sunday event or ask Geri for details. This should be a great time and if you are a fan, you wont want to miss out. Contests, raffles and food proceeds all go to benefit the Wounded Warrior Fund. Biloxi trip in FebruaryThe last trip to Biloxi was a sell outbut dont fret or worry, theres another one coming up on Feb. 17 through the 20th with many of the same benefits and perks that were in the last excursion. Transportation will be by deluxe motor coach; accommodations at the IP Casino Resort and Spa; $25 in free slot play and $24 in Food Coupons. Included in the three night; four day tour is a visit to the Hard Rock Casino and Palace Casino with complimentary $15 worth of free slot play at both.

Veterans Club meetingOn Thursday, Feb. 7 the Veterans Club begins its New Year with its first regular meeting at 2 p.m. Many things will be under discussion as we lay out the plans for this coming year. All veterans and their spouses are urged to attend and those interested in the work of the veterans of Cherrywood are also invited to take part. Included in the planning session is the upcoming Veterans Widows Luncheon scheduled for Feb. 19.

For details, contact Geri in the office or email me, your humble correspondent at urperssec@yahoo.com. We look forward to seeing you there. Spotlight on Excellence Saturday was cold and cloudy. A damp chill was in the air that penetrated even the hoodies that most people were wearing. The weather couldnt have been more atypical of Florida because there was no sunshine to warm the afternoon and the gloomy gray skies. Tim Delaney was doing his chores around the house while his two dogs watched out the front door storm-window from the comfort of their living room. In the yard, Tim saw a small white dog looking bewildered.

Friday, January 11, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, January 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com clean fur; but she looked confused and alone. Approaching the little creature, Tim was gentle in his voice and manner so as not to frighten the little girl dog more than she already was. Slowly he picked up the shaking little animal and brought her into his house much to the enjoyment and excitement of his own two dogs. A quick check by Tims expert hands showed no signs of injury to the stray but unfortunately, there was no collar showing who owned this loveable bundle of fur. Surely, he thought, some one has taken good care of this animal and must be going crazy looking for it. On a late Saturday afternoon the Dog Pound wasnt open and night was beginning to fall. While the puppy rested safe and secure in the Delaney home, Tim set out to find whoever had lost the dog. While his wife cared for the little one, Tim got in his car and began searching. At that time of day, many of the dog owners around the Prairie of Cherrywood take their four legged kids for a walk. Everyone that Tim encountered he would ask if they had seen anyone looking for a lost dog. He described the dog in detail and wondered if it was a Cherrywood resident who had lost it. None of the pet owners Tim met had seen or heard anything at and all and had no knowledge about anyone with that kind of a dog. As is often the case, when there is a problem, the news began to spread throughout the neighborhood. Phones lit up and people began actively looking for the owner but with no success. Darkness fell and the wind blew a winter like coldness through the air. While the little stray was snug and warm in the loving arms of Tim and his wife Daphne; everyone worried about the owners. All the dog owners considered what they would be going through if it was one of their pets that was lost and out on such a night; hungry; thirsty; cold and worst of all, alone. The next day was slightly warmer with a bit more sunshine. A small platoon of pet owners took to the streets in their cars; on bikes and on foot. They looked for posted signs; looked for strangers looking for their lost dog; they looked for anything that could reunite this dog with its person. Throughout the Cherrywood neighborhood and surrounding communities the people went. They talked with perfect strangers who were out taking care of their lawns; working in their garages or just plain walking down the street. Sunday, as night fell, there was still no word on who owned the dog we shall call, Mandy. For a second night she would be Tim and Daphnes house guest, much to the delight of their two dogs. Mandy was quite a curiosity to them. It was that evening that they discovered Mandy was blind in one eye and had a touch of arthritis. The Delaneys began to wonder if Mandy was supposed to be on medications. Tim had decided to check with the local vets office to see if Mandy had a chip that would reveal the owner but before doing that, he would call the Humane Society on Monday morning when they opened. When he phoned the authorities, Tim gave them Mandys description; where and when she was found and left his phone number should anyone call in looking for her. Less than a half hour later, Tims phone rang. When he picked it up, he knew that the owner had been found. He agreed to meet them at the entrance to Cherrywood right away. Mandy said good bye to her hosts in the language that only dogs can speak but everyone who has a pet understands. Happily, she then calmly got into the car with Tim. At the appointed meeting place, a car pulled up containing, among others, two young girls. The reunion that followed was like a scene from an old Lassie movie as kisses; hugs; and joyful tears flowed. It was New Year;s Eve and Mandy was back in the arms of her loving family; safe from the dangers and hardships of a cold, cruel world. Tim and Daphne have been featured in the Spotlight on Excellence before. Their kindness; compassion; love and care were duly noted in that article but this incident just pointed out even more dramatically, the kind of wonderful people they are. In addition, the concern displayed by the dozens of other Cherrywood residents is so very typical of the family atmosphere that exists in this community. If ever there was a story that exemplified the type of people that live here, this was it. That is why Mandy; her guardian angels and all of her friends made it to our Spotlight on Excellence this edition. Please note, the name of the dog was changed and no identifying owner information was given out to protect their privacy.

If youre looking for an inexpensive evening of really good entertainment, come down to the clubhouse for Karaoke Night. Everyone is welcome to sing and if you are shy, ask your friends to join you or invite the crowd to sing along. Theres no judging and no prizes; just good times. Camera Club There is no Camera Club on Friday the 18th of January. The next meeting will be held on Friday, Feb. 1. Everyone who has any interest in photography is encouraged to come to the library on that date and share your knowledge and experience with the rest of us. George Hamilton and ElvisThe next big event for Cherrywood is on Saturday, Jan. 26, when two monster talents team up on our stage. Dave Atkins does an Elvis Tribute that will have you convinced that Elvis is alive and well here in Ocala. Reputed to be one of the top Elvis Tribute specialists in the country, Dave will entertain with a wide variety of hits from the King of Rock & Roll. Not only does Dave have the fantastic voice of the King but he also has all the moves and style. A virtual look alike of the famous Elvis, Dave keeps the audience going with all the tunes that were part of our lives. Many a fond memory will be evoked by Daves show as well as an all around good time. The second huge talent appearing that night is George Hamilton IV. George has been a long time member of the Grand Old Opry and his many world tours earned him the name of International Ambassador of Country Music. Georges life time ambition to be a rock-a-billy star led him and his family to Nashville in 1959. The next year his record, A Rose and a Baby Ruth hit Gold Record status. In February of 1960, George became an official member of the Opry and the rest, as they say, is history. Abilene; Fort Worth, Dallas or Houston and Before This Day Ends were just a few of the big songs that made it on the charts for George in the years that followed. Now, much to our pleasure, both Dave and George will be appearing on our stage for one great night of entertainment. Tickets are nearly gone for this performance so see Geri ASAP to get your tickets for only $5 per person and to reserve your place in the clubhouse. Dont be surprised if you dont see this activity listed in future editions of the Citizen because the tickets are nearly gone. You are urged not to miss out on this special night hosted by the Activities Committee of Cherrywood. Sports SundaySee the notices posted in the clubhouse for information on the upcoming February 3rd Sports Sunday event or ask Geri for details. This should be a great time and if you are a fan, you wont want to miss out. Contests, raffles and food proceeds all go to benefit the Wounded Warrior Fund. Biloxi trip in FebruaryThe last trip to Biloxi was a sell outbut dont fret or worry, theres another one coming up on Feb. 17 through the 20th with many of the same benefits and perks that were in the last excursion. Transportation will be by deluxe motor coach; accommodations at the IP Casino Resort and Spa; $25 in free slot play and $24 in Food Coupons.

A damp chill was in the air that penetrated even the hoodies that most people were wearing. The weather couldnt have been more atypical of Florida because there was no sunshine to warm the afternoon and the gloomy gray skies. Tim Delaney was doing his chores around the house while his two dogs watched out the front door storm-window from the comfort of their living room. In the yard, Tim saw a small white dog looking bewildered.

Thats OK a love of New England is all you need! A fun time was had by everyone who attended the New England Club social in the Arbor Club Ballroom on Dec. 20. It was an afternoon of Christmas music, games, and a fabulous Christmas dinner cooked and served by the board members. Following dinner, there was a scrumptious display of desserts supplied by many generous members. Needless to say, at the end of the day everyone rolled out of there with full bellies. Everyone participated in a Christmas sing-a-long, led by Martha Gray; Dick Gray played the piano. The Grays were a very lively and fun addition to our day! Lots of laughs were had during the re-gifting swap and each person was handed their gift by the clubs very own Santa Claus. Its amazing how many people like to sit on Santas lap! Thank you Santa!

A capacity crowd gathered at the clubhouse to enjoy a wide variety of finger foods; be entertained by the fantastic band, Rainbow Connection; and count down the hours and minutes of the New Year while sipping Champagne with friends and neighbors. When residents pulled up to the clubhouse, they were met by Rich Becotte, who met them with a warm handshake and held the door while they entered the beautifully decorated facility. Once inside, Eve Houghtaling greeted every guest and made them feel welcome while Monica Becotte dispensed 50/50 tickets as she collected each persons admission ticket. Two long tables held a delightful array of sweets; cheeses; veggies; fruits; crackers and tea sandwiches. There was something for everyones taste and appetite. There was no shortage of these goodies that were enjoyed by all. The fantastic band, Rainbow Connection, played a wide variety of music giving everyone the opportunity to dance up a storm and dance they did. Everything from the Chicken Dance to an impromptu chorus line dancing to the strains of New York New York was seen on our dance floor with everything in between. Big Band era music mixed with early Rock n Roll blended with Show Tunes and wrapped up in Pop. Musically, the entertainment was just plain terrific and there was something for everyone as they listened and danced the hours away. At around 11, just one hour before the magic hour of midnight, Eve and Rich held the 50/50 drawings and the winning ticket was chosen for the door prize. Our winner was Judy Mandziara. As the hour clicked away, those gathered got another unexpected treat. Ruth and Richard Hurleys daughter, Susan, was visiting from her home state of Arizona. Little did any of us know that Susan had just received her Doctorate from the University of Arizona in Musical Arts. Her Major is in Voice Performance and she was kind enough to grace us with a song. Susan sang Memories, the theme song from the smash musical hit Cats. From the first note she struck, the audience was mesmerized. Every word; every note; every inflection of that music was right on; to the point of leaving the crowd breathless. When she finished the final refrain, the roof nearly came down with the applause of a standing ovation by every single person present. Impressive doesnt even begin to describe the beauty of Susans voice or her limitless talent. Moments later, the room was filled with the sound of popping corks reminiscent of the Boston Pops atmosphere. 2012 was quickly coming to an end and the anticipation of the New Year was electric in those gathered. The band began the traditional countdown, the clock struck 12 and the strains of Auld Lang Syne rang out. Well wishes swept the room with kissing; laughter; hugs and smiles. 2013 had arrived and had been lovingly welcomed. We know that whatever the New Year may bring, we at Cherrywood will embrace it or endure it together as not only a community; but as a family. Happy New Year!Karaoke Night Saturday, Jan. 12 at 7 p.m., join your friends and neighbors at the clubhouse for another rousing night of Karaoke fun. Bring your voices and your own refreshments and come on out for an enjoyable evening of watching and listening to people amaze and astound you or daze you; (Im sure there will be some of both at this fun night). Everyone is welcome to step up to the microphone and sing their favorite songs for the enjoyment of the rest of us. Bill LaVertue and company have over 40,000 songs to choose from so youre sure to find one that you know.

It brings to mind many memories of when I worked in the big apple. Really?Probably the most famous street in New York is Broadway, a name that is synonymous with Theater. The street name derives from an incident in the early days, when an opera diva, a Valkyrie type, stood outside the opera house and a passing theatergoer asked, How much does that broad weigh? Central ParkEven if you like New York, it can do things to a person. Ten years ago, this guy was a prominent judge in Manhattan; now, hes a wino living in Central Park. But out of respect people still say, May I approach the bench? A trainee for the Police Department was asked this hypothetical question: If your beat was a lonely path in Central Park, and a beautiful young girl rushed up to you and declared that a strange man had suddenly grabbed, hugged and kissed her, what would you do? The police-officer-intraining replied without hesitation, I would endeavor to reconstruct the crime. When the police were called one night to arrest a group of mimes giving a hotfoot to any man found sleeping on a bench in Central Park, the officer in charge explained to a new recruit, These are the mimes that fry mens soles. At an outdoor production of Julius Caesar, the people in Central Park were enthralled, but when Caesar was stabbed, about half the audience left. They didnt want to get involved. SubwaysThe New York subway system, alone of all the mass transit systems of the world, has maps inside rather than outside the trains. It forces you to get on the wrong train in order to find out where youre going. You decipher the map to discover that the first step in reaching your destination is to get off the wrong train at the next stop. According to some people, the reason a subway had to be built to Brooklyn was so the people who lived there could get home without being seen. There were six million fewer passengers in the New York subway last year. Nobody noticed. John was sitting on the subway and when a man came over, he said, Are you reading the paper? John replied, Yes, stood up, turned the page, and sat down again. TravelsA commuter is one who has a complaint of long standing. Its very difficult to get a parking ticket in NYC; first you have to find a place to park. If you hit them, you have to fill out a report, explained a taxi driver as he skillfully missed a pedestrian. Any time four New Yorkers get into a cab without arguing, a bank robbery has just taken place. The population of New York keeps going up. There are so many tollbooths on roads leading out of the city nobody can afford to leave. In New York City the only thing worse than raining cats and dogs is hailing taxis. The reporter asked, Now that youre living in the suburb, what do you miss most? The last train home, replied the commuter.A home run A man left Rome and came to New York where he worked as a cook in an Italian restaurant near Yankee Stadium. He became an avid baseball fan and for a brief period, left his job to become an umpire. He soon realized that his real future was in cuisine and he opened his own restaurant near the stadium. He was very successful and became renowned for his chicken risotto. Edward Gibbon wrote about the story in the epic Rice and Fowl of the Roman Umpire.Tall taleThe guide said, That is a skyscraper. A little old English lady tourist said, Oh, my. Id love to see it work! War of the wordsTwo trucks loaded with a thousand copies of Rogets Thesaurus collided as they left a New York publishing house last Thursday, according to the Associated Press. Witnesses were stunned, startled, aghast, taken aback, stupefied, amazed, astounded, and unsettled. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Performing Arts CompanyPerforming Arts Company is now in its second week of rehearsals and included in the cast are Diane and Frank Porterfield in the roles of Vera and Jesus. The Porterfields moved to Oak Run some 19 years ago and have been very active in the theatre groups as cast members, directors and producers. Frank is a past president of both groups of the newly merged performing arts company and Diane has served on both boards. They have been involved in 17 plays and Diane has directed 14 of them. Diane is one of the rare, native, Floridians while Frank is from Michigan. Their past theatre experience is vastly different. Diane has been involved since preschool days, whereas Franks only experience was a small part in the 8th grade in HMS Pinafore, his only other experience was as a writer. While serving a tour of duty in the Army in Alaska he tried his hand at writing short stories, none of which were ever published. After moving to Oak Run Dianes love of theatre was rekindled when she learned of the local Way Off Broadway and Little Theatre clubs. She lured Frank into taking a part in Bedside Manor which she was directing, after the person playing the role of a female dietitian took sick and had to drop out. What she hadnt told him was that he had to play the role as a woman!! He was hooked; the greasepaint was in his blood. Each week we will try and interest our potential audiences with tidbits about other cast and crew members. Please try and get your tickets early for the best seating. If you cannot make one of the scheduled public ticket sales you can make purchases by phoning Shari Weber at 352-854-0116 for the dinner show and Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 for all other shows. Reading Volunteer GroupLove to read? Love kids? Our Reading Volunteer Group is looking for enthusiastic people to visit two of our local elementary schools and read to the lower grades.

The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you are escorted by two of the children to their classroom.

Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures in the wonderful world of books.

Friday, January 11, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, January 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I t was just before New Years and the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were relaxing after a busy week of toil and labor. Not paying much attention to my surroundings, I had immersed myself in a favorite book. As far as I am concerned, nothing compares to a favorite book when you are trying to relax and unwind. I turned the page and happened to notice on the other side of the room my wife was all a twitchy. I have seen this behavior before and I knew she was anxious to say something. I pretended not to notice. Finally, it was as if she exploded. I cant wait for the New Year. Arent you excited? I answered in the affirmative to try to keep the conversation as minimal as possible. No, I mean arent you really excited about the New Year? I knew if I was going to get back to my book I would have to let her say, what was on her mind. According to her, the approaching New Year was going to be spectacular. Everything old, she explained to me, would be new again. We have been in this New Year for a couple of weeks now and, I will not contradict my wife, at least aloud, but this New Year looks suspiciously like the Old Year. I am not quite sure what she thought would be different this year, but to me it is just the old year run through again. And, that is good with me. I am not one of these persons who needs the latest flash in the pan. I quite prefer the tried and true. It was about two weeks after the New Year and my wife said, Ill be back in an hour or two, Im going shopping. It did not dawn on me at the time but about 10 minutes later, it did. The reason my wife was so excited about the New Year was that she was going to go out and buy some new clothes. After all, according to her calculations, the New Year deserves new clothing. I smiled as I thought about her going to the store trying on dresses, seeking one that would fit her both in size and in fancy. As for me, I am quite comfortable in my old clothes. They fit me just fine, thank you. Women have to look fine all the time. Men, on the other hand are not that particular about what they wear. I can wear the same shirt for days on end and feel just as comfortable as the first day I put it on. My clothing does not make me feel any younger. I go along with the saying that says you are only as old as you feel. Of course, I do have some of those Methuselah moments. Everything old was once new and if new last very long it ends up being old. Therefore, whatever is old was once new and whatever is new will one day be old. This is where most people make their mistake. They fail to see the relationship between old and new. For example, as much as our culture pretends to be youth oriented, it does everything to get old while looking young. I often have this conversation with my wife. I am not old, I am just getting older and my plans are to get older and older and older. The great object in life is to get as old as you possibly can while looking and feeling new. Nothing to me is sillier than a 40 year old trying to act 20. The mind may say 20, but the body really knows it is 40. If people would put the money they spend to look young in a 401(k) their golden years would truly be golden. How much money is spent each year on plastic surgery? What I want to know is, who in the world do they think they are fooling? Their mirror? Right after the New Years celebration, I got up one morning feeling terrific. There was a bounce in my step, a giggle on my tongue; I was feeling like I was 20 something. I had not felt this good since I cannot remember how long. Then it happened. No matter how good you might feel some day, there is always something or someone who can undermine that and put you in your proper place. My mistake was going into the bathroom. There in the bathroom for all the world to see, especially me is this ghastly object called a mirror. When I looked into the mirror, I was shocked to see I was not alone. I thought I had come into the bathroom by myself but there in the mirror was this old guy I hardly recognized. My first reaction was to ask him to leave the bathroom and then I noticed So this is what new really looks like something. That person in the mirror was me! All of those exhilarating feelings dissipated as reality grabbed hold of my soul and soundly shook me. In my Bible reading that morning, I read what the apostle Paul said. And be renewed in the spirit of your minds; and that she put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4:23-24 KJV). Only God, in His wisdom, can create in me something that is truly new.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

But dont rush to call her lucky. She heard a piercing whistle, felt the building shake, and then was engulfed by a fireball blasted from the elevator bank. Running from the tower in flames, she hurled herself on a patch of grass where a stranger put out her fire and covered her with his jacket. From the start Manning took charge of her own recovery. Knowing that St. Vincents Hospital, where she was taken, was not equipped to treat the burns that covered 82 percent of her body, she repeatedly asked to be transferred to Weill Cornell Medical Centers burn unit. Days later her request was honored and she began learning to live again. After the books dramatic opening we learn about Mannings privileged but uneventful life that scarcely prepared her for the ordeal shed face for almost 10 years. Through the haze of pain and skin grafts, the ever-present threat of infection she keeps asking husband Greg about her friends at Cantor Fitzgerald. Weeks pass and finally shes told that 638 of the companys employees had perished. Her reaction is that of an avenging angel swearing to get those bastards yet knowing that revenge is a job for others. The scrappiness that propelled her to success in her career would serve her well in recovering. In time she even began devising ways to beat her injuries. Pain was my opponent: I studied it and anticipated the ways it would try to take me down. When she was well enough, she and Greg told their story over and over againto the New York Times, to Katie Couric on the Today Show and to Oprah Winfrey. Greg, too, escaped death that fateful day. He was scheduled to attend a breakfast at Windows on the World but helped out a friend at the last minute. Despite their extensive coverage the distinction of Mannings memoir lies in her aggressive insistence on her own dignity and independence.

An analogy is a partial likeness between two things when compared. During the December holiday season we were deluged with predictions and nonsense about the fiscal cliff, and the end of the world, threatening concerns for our nation and the planet. According to Congress and the White House, the fiscal cliff is located in Washington, D.C. We experienced months of national anxiety that falling off the governments financial cliff would have dire consequences for every bank and stock exchange in the world. Similarly threatening was completion of The Great Maya Cycle, known more disturbingly as the end of the world according to the Mayan calendar. One positive aspect of reaching the end of the Mayan calendar is www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, January 11, 2013 T he quarterly reading of the names of recently deceased veterans never fails to be impressive. Last Saturday, a few hardy souls gathered in Veterans Memorial Park in Ocala, amid cool temperatures and a cooler wind chill, to honor those veterans who died during the last three months of 2012. If youve never been to the ceremony, its worth a trip. Its held the first Saturday of each quarter at the park, and features an opening prayer, some music, usually by a church group, and a 21gun salute by members of the Sheriffs Department. But the most important moments come during the reading of the names. Each veterans name is read, followed by the date of death and his branch of service. Non-stop during the readings is a somber drum roll, and as the reader pauses after each name, a bell is rung twice. Those are the only noises you hear as the crowd sits silently through the event. Some handkerchiefs wipe the eyes occasionally, especially as those who are there for the first time hear the name of a loved one. This is the 10th year of the quarterly ceremony, which means it was taking place when my father died in 2004. Unfortunately, I was working out of town at the time and was unaware of the fledgling event. Had I known, I certainly would have been there, and it would have provided me with a memory that would exist for the rest of my days. What makes the ceremony even more powerful is the setting. The park sits at the corner of Fort King Street and 25th Avenue East, within view of Silver Springs Boulevard, behind the Veterans Service Office. Its a beautiful venue, with paths and benches, monuments, displays, and a large grass setting in the center. The benches are placed in memory of various veterans whose names are inscribed on the front of the seats. There are other ways that local veterans are remembered. There is also an area where those from the county who were killed in action are listed. It was announced Saturday that Markie T. Sims, who was recently killed in Afghanistan, would be added to that list. Sims in-laws were at Saturdays ceremony. Someday when you have a little time, take a trip over and just wander through the park, which is wheelchair-friendly. Youll find yourself deep in thought about those who are honored by this facility. There are other regular events at the park. The next one comes up on Sunday, Feb. 3, at 3 p.m. to honor The Four Chaplains, four who gave their lives to save others. Yes, I know Feb. 3 is Super Bowl Sunday, but the game isnt until after 6 in the evening, so go ahead out to the park. You wont regret it. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

T he headline in a New York newspaper talked about how a woman who lost two sons on 9/11 was upset with the 67 members of the U.S. House of Representatives who voted against aid for Hurricane Sandy. She has a right to be. One of Marion Countys representatives, Ted Yoho of Gainesville, was one of those who cast a negative vote. It was not an auspicious start for the newly sworn-in Republican congressman from Gainesville, the man who defeated Cliff Stearns. Yoho reportedly said he was sticking by his principles of not having the federal government involved in this type of situation. While his principle may be praised by many, there is no alternative in place to help the people of the New York area, some of whom are still living in tent cities. Yoho should instead work to establish methods by which the states and cities can help refugees of a disaster such as Sandy. Only when such aid is available should he take the attitude that the federal government shouldnt be helping those folks. The people in New York have a right to remind the 67 representatives that federal funds are partially their money, and voting not to give it back to them when its desperately needed is withholding from the victims what is their due. The new congressman showed a lack of compassion in his vote. He has already taken on the label of rebel after casting a vote for Eric Cantor over John Boehner for Speaker of the House, one of only nine votes Cantor, who wasnt even running for the position, received. Now hes being labeled worse than a rebel for his choice to vote against those who need help up north. Someday, because of our geography, we could be the ones seeking aid after a hurricane. We have to wonder what our rebel would do then. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Yoho puts politics ahead of humanity Reading of vets names impressive Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Why our world has yet to come to an end Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED that it would be less painful for politicians than a collapse of banks and stock exchanges. With their last breaths politicians could shout proudly It wasnt our fault! The president and Congress would have us believe they pulled us back from the fiscal cliff during a New Years Eve chorus of Auld Lang Syne. Congress is fond of seemingly heroic, last-minute rescues. In reality Congress and the president just kicked the can down the road again. They didnt even back the fiscal bus off the cliff. The end of financial stability is already on their 2013 calendar. Within 10 years, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid will be 50 percent of the federal budget. Add defense spending and payment of interest on the national debt, and there wont be much budget left for pork-barrel spending. Congress and the White House have a persistent fantasy that there is no limitation to American prosperity as long as they can borrow more trillions of dollars from countries which have built great wealth by selling their products in the United States. Is it possible some similar financial crisis happened to the highly developed Mayan civilization and caused their 15 million citizens to disappear from the planet around 900AD never to be heard of again? After centuries of discussion among anthropologists, archeologists, astronomers, historians, and linguists, the current consensus is that climate change destroyed the Mayan civilization. Environmentalists and Al Gore must be ecstatic. There may be an alternative explanation, which the scholars didnt consider. Our first thought was that perhaps the Mayan calendar came to an end on Dec. 21, 2012 because the writers ran out of paper. However, the Mayans didnt print calendars. They carved them in stone. Maybe they ran out of rocks because they built too many government pyramids. Our conclusion is that strife between political parties was the most likely cause of the mysterious end of the Mayan civilization. Mayapublicans, whose supporters created the wealth of the Mayans, probably adjourned for a holiday and never returned. Within a few decades, the dogoody Mayacrats ran out of money and went in search of the Mayapublicans. They too never returned. Some things never change. Read the classifieds No need to pretend Are your ears and eyes open? Can you hear the clicking, clicking, clicking of the price going up even as you are filling up at the gas pump? The election is over, no need to pretend any longer. The useful idiots have performed perfectly. They have come through with flying colors. No further need of the charade. Did you just see that 2 percent tax just slip away out of your paycheck? He said he would raise taxes. You did not believe him? Next on the agenda: the rise in insurance premiums, did you get yours? Medical costs will be next. More taxes, next. Where will it end? Useful idiots are not a myth, or a joke, they are for real. The useful idiot in chief tells them so, and they believe everything that is said. Including the lies. Keep on believing useful idiots believe yourself straight into slavery. You are begging for it. Just remember, you have been warned. The world is so much bigger than your little circle. Do not take my word for it, pick up a book, and read something for yourself. My I suggest you try the Constitution and the Bill of Rights for starters. Then try The Law by Frederic Bastiat, only 70 pages. D.I. Larson Ocala Mental health All the stories following the massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and six adults were killed by a deranged young man, have been tales of people going back and forth on the gun issue. Should we outlaw assault weapons? Should be outlaw individual possession of guns? Should be arm our teachers (a terrible idea, makes it easier for a kid in a classroom to grab a gun and start shooting)? There should be more focus on the mental health issues. In this case, what makes a young man prepare and carry out a mission to kill a bunch of defenseless little children in classrooms at an elementary school. The system needs to worry about identifying potential offenders and getting them treatment. Parents need to take responsibility, too. This killers mother fostered violence by providing the guns, and then she herself was killed by one of them. Instead of disarming the people, how about trying a cure instead? Maybe that will save some lives. Charles Thomas Ocala

He is probably an Australian Shepherd/Lab mix. Right now he is 35 pounds, but should fill out to about 40 to 50 pounds at adulthood. Jackson is a great dog sweet and friendly with two levels of obedience training under his belt already, with the certificates to prove it. Jackson was adopted as a young puppy from a kill shelter to be a companion to an old dog. Such a young, active dog turned out to be too playful for the older dog. The family did not wish to return him to the kill shelter, so Mary at Pet Network took him in. Jackson is house, leash, and crate trained, and gets along well with other dogs, although it may be best if he is the only dog in the household. He also loves to ride in the car and play with squeak toys. He would make a great companion for an active person or family, or for someone who likes their dogs medium sized. If you would like to meet Jackson, please call Mary at 352-5280270. Arlenes cats and kittens are still hoping for their forever homes. Coco and Panda, the kitten tuxedos pictured here, have become inseparable best friends and need to be placed together. So if you have room for two, Coco and Panda would fit the bill.

Friday, January 11, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, January 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be hurt by a colleagues harsh criticism. But dont let it shake your confidence in what youre trying to do. A more positive aspect starts to appear by weeks end. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Youre torn between your sensible self and the part of you that enjoys acquiring lovely things. Best advice: Wait for an end-of-month sale, and then buy something wonderful. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your artistic side has practical applications this week, such as redecorating your home or redesigning your personal stationery. Whatever you do, someone special will like it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You could be drawn into a problem twixt friends or family members. Best bet: Ask the questions that go to the heart of the matter, then get them all together for a group hug. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) As much as you love being the center of attention, your big Lions heart impels you to share the spotlight with a colleague who helped you with that wellpraised project. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your eagerness to act on a challenge is wisely tempered early in the week by a lack of necessary information. Things begin to clear up during the weekend. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A relationship youd hoped would keep going seems to be going nowhere. Close it out and move on to a brighter romantic aspect just beginning to manifest itself. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Things dont go completely as planned this week. But enjoy the surprises, even if you have to adjust your schedule. Some of them could be quite delightful. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Making choices is usually easy for straightshooting Archers. But a new development could deflect your aim. Try to put off decisions until you know more. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) While part of you might prefer taking a more familiar path, let your more daring and admit it super-curious self see what the unexplored has to offer. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Those nasty types have slithered back under the rocks and present no more problems. Nows the time to move ahead on that promising new relationship. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A new offer could clear up that lingering money problem. Also, a more confident attitude on your part might well help get that personal situation back on track. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of turning chaos into order. Youre also generous with your help for those who seek it. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

It would only take up about an hour of your time, six mornings a year each (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) at Sunrise and Marion Oaks Elementary schools. The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you are escorted by two of the children to their classroom. Having the children around you engaged and anticipating the next page, discussing the book, sharing the pictures, and just being with them is a truly rewarding experience. Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures in the wonderful world of books. Call Addie Bambridge at 352-533-8666 to sign up or for more information. Marions Most Wanted K evin D usha y C ollins 51, felony capias driving while license canceled suspended or revoked.

BRIEFS Coalition to hear from Laura ByrnesThe State Road 200 Coalition will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, Jan. 14, at the Collins Health Resource Center, Building 300, Suite 303, TimberRidge Medical Park, on Southwest 110th Street off State Road 200 in Ocala. The meeting begins at 1 p.m. with refreshments available at 12:30. Laura Byrnes of Workforce Connection will be the speaker. The meeting is open to the public. Woman who killed baby has diedA 20-year-old Ocala woman allegedly shot and killed her 6-month-old son on Friday, then reportedly turned the gun on herself. The mother, Melanie Reyes, survived the shooting, but was put on life support and died Tuesday morning. Marion County deputies responded to 4836 N.W. 45th Court in a development called the Fountains, off Northwest 44th Avenue, approximately one mile north of the Quail Meadow entrance. Arriving about 11:15 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 4, they had been dispatched to do a well-being check. Family members had called 911 to report Reyes had posted a statement on her Facebook page indicated she was going to shoot her child and herself. When deputies arrived, they found Reyes and her baby, Jonah Mendoza, 6 months, with gunshot wounds. Both were transported to the hospital. The baby died from his injuries. A handgun was recovered from the home and detectives are confident it was the gun used by Reyes in the shooting. No one else was at the house at the time. The boys father, Jordan Mendoza, is living elsewhere.

BY JIM CLARK Editor Area residents armed with statements against homeowner associations and developers came to Tuesdays Marion County Legislative Delegation ready to do battle, but a state senators comments at the opening of the meeting quickly let them know they would get little satisfaction. The delegation gathered at the Klein Center at Central Florida Community College for the five-hour meeting as a crowd composed mostly of representatives of local agencies filled the room. State Sen. Alan Hays, who represents Southeastern Marion, obviously had seen the several people on the agenda and their topic, and immediately let them know the facts. Hays said he was astounded at the last delegation meeting when he heard the vocal complaints. We took it on, he said of the people in Tallahassee, but we have yet to solve the problem, which he called gargantuan. It cannot be retroactive, you cant roll the calendar back and say you cant do that, Hays told the audience. We ran into brick walls, and some of them were reinforced. Hays added, Were still striving to solve the problem. It was about three hours later before the list of homeowners who had signed up to speak got to the podium. By then, State Sen. Charlie Dean, who at the start of the meeting had been elected chairman, was cracking down on the four-minute speaking limit. First up was Don Kronen, who said he had appeared before the delegation 16 months ago. Im very disappointed to be here again. Kronen said that lives have been devastated, finances decimated of many residents of developments.

Since 1999, more than 170 law enforcement officers in the United States have died and thousands injured in a crash as a result of being on the side of the roadway doing their job. During the month of January, Florida Highway Patrol troopers will pay special attention to drivers violating the states Move Over law. The Move Over law protects law enforcement officers, emergency workers and tow truck drivers who are stopped along Florida roadways doing their jobs. Floridas Move Over law was enacted to protect those trying to protect Floridas motorists, said Col. David Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol.

BRIEFS Coalition to hear from Laura ByrnesThe State Road 200 Coalition will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, Jan. 14, at the Collins Health Resource Center, Building 300, Suite 303, TimberRidge Medical Park, on Southwest 110th Street off State Road 200 in Ocala. The meeting begins at 1 p.m. with refreshments available at 12:30. Laura Byrnes of Workforce Connection will be the speaker. The meeting is open to the public.Woman who killed baby has diedA 20-year-old Ocala woman allegedly shot and killed her 6-month-old son on Friday, then reportedly turned the gun on herself. The mother, Melanie Reyes, survived the shooting, but was put on life support and died Tuesday morning. Marion County deputies responded to 4836 N.W. 45th Court in a development called the Fountains, off Northwest 44th Avenue, approximately one mile north of the Quail Meadow entrance. Arriving about 11:15 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 4, they had been dispatched to do a well-being check. Family members had called 911 to report Reyes had posted a statement on her Facebook page indicated she was going to shoot her child and herself. When deputies arrived, they found Reyes and her baby, Jonah Mendoza, 6 months, with gunshot wounds. Both were transported to the hospital. The baby died from his injuries. A handgun was recovered from the home and detectives are confident it was the gun used by Reyes in the shooting. No one else was at the house at the time. The boys father, Jordan Mendoza, is living elsewhere.

BY JIM CLARK EditorArea residents armed with statements against homeowner associations and developers came to Tuesdays Marion County Legislative Delegation ready to do battle, but a state senators comments at the opening of the meeting quickly let them know they would get little satisfaction. The delegation gathered at the Klein Center at Central Florida Community College for the five-hour meeting as a crowd composed mostly of representatives of local agencies filled the room. State Sen. Alan Hays, who represents Southeastern Marion, obviously had seen the several people on the agenda and their topic, and immediately let them know the facts. Hays said he was astounded at the last delegation meeting when he heard the vocal complaints. We took it on, he said of the people in Tallahassee, but we have yet to solve the problem, which he called gargantuan. It cannot be retroactive, you cant roll the calendar back and say you cant do that, Hays told the audience. We ran into brick walls, and some of them were reinforced. Hays added, Were still striving to solve the problem. It was about three hours later before the list of homeowners who had signed up to speak got to the podium. By then, State Sen. Charlie Dean, who at the start of the meeting had been elected chairman, was cracking down on the four-minute speaking limit. First up was Don Kronen, who said he had appeared before the delegation 16 months ago. Im very disappointed to be here again. Kronen said that lives have been devastated, finances decimated of many residents of developments.

The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you are escorted by two of the children to their classroom. Having the children around you engaged and anticipating the next page, discussing the book, sharing the pictures, and just being with them is a truly rewarding experience. Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures in the wonderful world of books.

Friday, January 11, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, January 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be hurt by a colleagues harsh criticism. But dont let it shake your confidence in what youre trying to do. A more positive aspect starts to appear by weeks end. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Youre torn between your sensible self and the part of you that enjoys acquiring lovely things. Best advice: Wait for an end-of-month sale, and then buy something wonderful. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your artistic side has practical applications this week, such as redecorating your home or redesigning your personal stationery. Whatever you do, someone special will like it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You could be drawn into a problem twixt friends or family members. Best bet: Ask the questions that go to the heart of the matter, then get them all together for a group hug. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) As much as you love being the center of attention, your big Lions heart impels you to share the spotlight with a colleague who helped you with that wellpraised project. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your eagerness to act on a challenge is wisely tempered early in the week by a lack of necessary information. Things begin to clear up during the weekend. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A relationship youd hoped would keep going seems to be going nowhere. Close it out and move on to a brighter romantic aspect just beginning to manifest itself. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Things dont go completely as planned this week. But enjoy the surprises, even if you have to adjust your schedule. Some of them could be quite delightful. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Making choices is usually easy for straightshooting Archers. But a new development could deflect your aim. Try to put off decisions until you know more. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) While part of you might prefer taking a more familiar path, let your more daring and admit it super-curious self see what the unexplored has to offer. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Those nasty types have slithered back under the rocks and present no more problems. Nows the time to move ahead on that promising new relationship. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A new offer could clear up that lingering money problem. Also, a more confident attitude on your part might well help get that personal situation back on track. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of turning chaos into order. Youre also generous with your help for those who seek it. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Our first meeting of the New Year will take place on Thursday, Jan. 17, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. This would be a good meeting for anyone with a companion animal to attend, since our guest speaker will be from the University of Florida Pet Emergency Center. This is the off hours animal emergency hospital located by the Paddock Mall that opened over the summer. If you would like to know more about them, this is an opportunity for you to get information and ask questions. Our meetings are always open to guests; it is not necessary to be an SPCA member. Anyone wishing to send us a donation or a letter by mail should note that we have a new mailing address. Please send your correspondence to: SPCA of Marion County, 11100 S.W. 93rd Court Road, Suite 10115, Ocala FL 34481. Our phone number remains the same at 352-362-0985 if you have any questions or need our help.Adoption NewsWe are trying to help Pet Network place a 10-monthold puppy named Jackson. He is probably an Australian Shepherd/Lab mix. Right now he is 35 pounds, but should fill out to about 40 to 50 pounds at adulthood. Jackson is a great dog sweet and friendly with two levels of obedience training under his belt already, with the certificates to prove it. Jackson was adopted as a young puppy from a kill shelter to be a companion to an old dog. Such a young, active dog turned out to be too playful for the older dog. The family did not wish to return him to the kill shelter, so Mary at Pet Network took him in. Jackson is house, leash, and crate trained, and gets along well with other dogs, although it may be best if he is the only dog in the household. He also loves to ride in the car and play with squeak toys. He would make a great companion for an active person or family, or for someone who likes their dogs medium sized. If you would like to meet Jackson, please call Mary at 352-5280270. Arlenes cats and kittens are still hoping for their forever homes. Coco and Panda, the kitten tuxedos pictured here, have become inseparable best friends and need to be placed together. So if you have room for two, Coco and Panda would fit the bill. They can amuse you for hours as they play together. Striking black kitten Ebony, also pictured here, is new to the group. Just 4 months old, she is loving and has taken quickly to foster care.

An analogy is a partial likeness between two things when compared. During the December holiday season we were deluged with predictions and nonsense about the fiscal cliff, and the end of the world, threatening concerns for our nation and the planet. According to Congress and the White House, the fiscal cliff is located in Washington, D.C. We experienced months of national anxiety that falling off the governments financial cliff would have dire consequences for every bank and stock exchange in the world. Similarly threatening was completion of The Great Maya Cycle, known more disturbingly as the end of the world according to the Mayan calendar. One positive aspect of reaching the end of the Mayan calendar is www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, January 11, 2013 The quarterly reading of the names of recently deceased veterans never fails to be impressive. Last Saturday, a few hardy souls gathered in Veterans Memorial Park in Ocala, amid cool temperatures and a cooler wind chill, to honor those veterans who died during the last three months of 2012. If youve never been to the ceremony, its worth a trip. Its held the first Saturday of each quarter at the park, and features an opening prayer, some music, usually by a church group, and a 21gun salute by members of the Sheriffs Department. But the most important moments come during the reading of the names. Each veterans name is read, followed by the date of death and his branch of service. Non-stop during the readings is a somber drum roll, and as the reader pauses after each name, a bell is rung twice. Those are the only noises you hear as the crowd sits silently through the event. Some handkerchiefs wipe the eyes occasionally, especially as those who are there for the first time hear the name of a loved one. This is the 10th year of the quarterly ceremony, which means it was taking place when my father died in 2004. Unfortunately, I was working out of town at the time and was unaware of the fledgling event. Had I known, I certainly would have been there, and it would have provided me with a memory that would exist for the rest of my days. What makes the ceremony even more powerful is the setting. The park sits at the corner of Fort King Street and 25th Avenue East, within view of Silver Springs Boulevard, behind the Veterans Service Office. Its a beautiful venue, with paths and benches, monuments, displays, and a large grass setting in the center. The benches are placed in memory of various veterans whose names are inscribed on the front of the seats. There are other ways that local veterans are remembered. There is also an area where those from the county who were killed in action are listed. It was announced Saturday that Markie T. Sims, who was recently killed in Afghanistan, would be added to that list. Sims in-laws were at Saturdays ceremony. Someday when you have a little time, take a trip over and just wander through the park, which is wheelchair-friendly. Youll find yourself deep in thought about those who are honored by this facility. There are other regular events at the park. The next one comes up on Sunday, Feb. 3, at 3 p.m. to honor The Four Chaplains, four who gave their lives to save others. Yes, I know Feb. 3 is Super Bowl Sunday, but the game isnt until after 6 in the evening, so go ahead out to the park. You wont regret it.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

The headline in a New York newspaper talked about how a woman who lost two sons on 9/11 was upset with the 67 members of the U.S. House of Representatives who voted against aid for Hurricane Sandy. She has a right to be. One of Marion Countys representatives, Ted Yoho of Gainesville, was one of those who cast a negative vote. It was not an auspicious start for the newly sworn-in Republican congressman from Gainesville, the man who defeated Cliff Stearns. Yoho reportedly said he was sticking by his principles of not having the federal government involved in this type of situation. While his principle may be praised by many, there is no alternative in place to help the people of the New York area, some of whom are still living in tent cities. Yoho should instead work to establish methods by which the states and cities can help refugees of a disaster such as Sandy. Only when such aid is available should he take the attitude that the federal government shouldnt be helping those folks. The people in New York have a right to remind the 67 representatives that federal funds are partially their money, and voting not to give it back to them when its desperately needed is withholding from the victims what is their due. The new congressman showed a lack of compassion in his vote. He has already taken on the label of rebel after casting a vote for Eric Cantor over John Boehner for Speaker of the House, one of only nine votes Cantor, who wasnt even running for the position, received. Now hes being labeled worse than a rebel for his choice to vote against those who need help up north. Someday, because of our geography, we could be the ones seeking aid after a hurricane. We have to wonder what our rebel would do then.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Yoho puts politics ahead of humanity Reading of vets names impressive Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Why our world has yet to come to an end Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED that it would be less painful for politicians than a collapse of banks and stock exchanges. With their last breaths politicians could shout proudly It wasnt our fault! The president and Congress would have us believe they pulled us back from the fiscal cliff during a New Years Eve chorus of Auld Lang Syne. Congress is fond of seemingly heroic, last-minute rescues. In reality Congress and the president just kicked the can down the road again. They didnt even back the fiscal bus off the cliff. The end of financial stability is already on their 2013 calendar. Within 10 years, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid will be 50 percent of the federal budget. Add defense spending and payment of interest on the national debt, and there wont be much budget left for pork-barrel spending. Congress and the White House have a persistent fantasy that there is no limitation to American prosperity as long as they can borrow more trillions of dollars from countries which have built great wealth by selling their products in the United States. Is it possible some similar financial crisis happened to the highly developed Mayan civilization and caused their 15 million citizens to disappear from the planet around 900AD never to be heard of again? After centuries of discussion among anthropologists, archeologists, astronomers, historians, and linguists, the current consensus is that climate change destroyed the Mayan civilization. Environmentalists and Al Gore must be ecstatic. There may be an alternative explanation, which the scholars didnt consider. Our first thought was that perhaps the Mayan calendar came to an end on Dec. 21, 2012 because the writers ran out of paper. However, the Mayans didnt print calendars. They carved them in stone. Maybe they ran out of rocks because they built too many government pyramids. Our conclusion is that strife between political parties was the most likely cause of the mysterious end of the Mayan civilization. Mayapublicans, whose supporters created the wealth of the Mayans, probably adjourned for a holiday and never returned. Within a few decades, the dogoody Mayacrats ran out of money and went in search of the Mayapublicans. They too never returned. Some things never change. Read the classifieds No need to pretendAre your ears and eyes open? Can you hear the clicking, clicking, clicking of the price going up even as you are filling up at the gas pump? The election is over, no need to pretend any longer. The useful idiots have performed perfectly. They have come through with flying colors. No further need of the charade. Did you just see that 2 percent tax just slip away out of your paycheck? He said he would raise taxes. You did not believe him? Next on the agenda: the rise in insurance premiums, did you get yours? Medical costs will be next. More taxes, next. Where will it end? Useful idiots are not a myth, or a joke, they are for real. The useful idiot in chief tells them so, and they believe everything that is said. Including the lies. Keep on believing useful idiots believe yourself straight into slavery. You are begging for it. Just remember, you have been warned. The world is so much bigger than your little circle. Do not take my word for it, pick up a book, and read something for yourself. My I suggest you try the Constitution and the Bill of Rights for starters. Then try The Law by Frederic Bastiat, only 70 pages. D.I. Larson OcalaMental healthAll the stories following the massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and six adults were killed by a deranged young man, have been tales of people going back and forth on the gun issue. Should we outlaw assault weapons? Should be outlaw individual possession of guns? Should be arm our teachers (a terrible idea, makes it easier for a kid in a classroom to grab a gun and start shooting)? There should be more focus on the mental health issues. In this case, what makes a young man prepare and carry out a mission to kill a bunch of defenseless little children in classrooms at an elementary school. The system needs to worry about identifying potential offenders and getting them treatment. Parents need to take responsibility, too. This killers mother fostered violence by providing the guns, and then she herself was killed by one of them. Instead of disarming the people, how about trying a cure instead? Maybe that will save some lives. Charles Thomas Ocala

The Porterfields moved to Oak Run some 19 years ago and have been very active in the theatre groups as cast members, directors and producers. Frank is a past president of both groups of the newly merged performing arts company and Diane has served on both boards. They have been involved in 17 plays and Diane has directed 14 of them. Diane is one of the rare, native, Floridians while Frank is from Michigan. Their past theatre experience is vastly different. Diane has been involved since preschool days, whereas Franks only experience was a small part in the 8th grade in HMS Pinafore, his only other experience was as a writer. While serving a tour of duty in the Army in Alaska he tried his hand at writing short stories, none of which were ever published. After moving to Oak Run Dianes love of theatre was rekindled when she learned of the local Way Off Broadway and Little Theatre clubs. She lured Frank into taking a part in Bedside Manor which she was directing, after the person playing the role of a female dietitian took sick and had to drop out. What she hadnt told him was that he had to play the role as a woman!! He was hooked; the greasepaint was in his blood. Each week we will try and interest our potential audiences with tidbits about other cast and crew members. Please try and get your tickets early for the best seating. If you cannot make one of the scheduled public ticket sales you can make purchases by phoning Shari Weber at 352-854-0116 for the dinner show and Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 for all other shows.

Friday, January 11, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, January 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com It was just before New Years and the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were relaxing after a busy week of toil and labor. Not paying much attention to my surroundings, I had immersed myself in a favorite book. As far as I am concerned, nothing compares to a favorite book when you are trying to relax and unwind. I turned the page and happened to notice on the other side of the room my wife was all a twitchy. I have seen this behavior before and I knew she was anxious to say something. I pretended not to notice. Finally, it was as if she exploded. I cant wait for the New Year. Arent you excited? I answered in the affirmative to try to keep the conversation as minimal as possible. No, I mean arent you really excited about the New Year? I knew if I was going to get back to my book I would have to let her say, what was on her mind. According to her, the approaching New Year was going to be spectacular. Everything old, she explained to me, would be new again. We have been in this New Year for a couple of weeks now and, I will not contradict my wife, at least aloud, but this New Year looks suspiciously like the Old Year. I am not quite sure what she thought would be different this year, but to me it is just the old year run through again. And, that is good with me. I am not one of these persons who needs the latest flash in the pan. I quite prefer the tried and true. It was about two weeks after the New Year and my wife said, Ill be back in an hour or two, Im going shopping. It did not dawn on me at the time but about 10 minutes later, it did. The reason my wife was so excited about the New Year was that she was going to go out and buy some new clothes. After all, according to her calculations, the New Year deserves new clothing. I smiled as I thought about her going to the store trying on dresses, seeking one that would fit her both in size and in fancy. As for me, I am quite comfortable in my old clothes. They fit me just fine, thank you. Women have to look fine all the time. Men, on the other hand are not that particular about what they wear. I can wear the same shirt for days on end and feel just as comfortable as the first day I put it on. My clothing does not make me feel any younger. I go along with the saying that says you are only as old as you feel. Of course, I do have some of those Methuselah moments. Everything old was once new and if new last very long it ends up being old. Therefore, whatever is old was once new and whatever is new will one day be old. This is where most people make their mistake. They fail to see the relationship between old and new. For example, as much as our culture pretends to be youth oriented, it does everything to get old while looking young. I often have this conversation with my wife. I am not old, I am just getting older and my plans are to get older and older and older. The great object in life is to get as old as you possibly can while looking and feeling new. Nothing to me is sillier than a 40 year old trying to act 20. The mind may say 20, but the body really knows it is 40. If people would put the money they spend to look young in a 401(k) their golden years would truly be golden. How much money is spent each year on plastic surgery? What I want to know is, who in the world do they think they are fooling? Their mirror? Right after the New Years celebration, I got up one morning feeling terrific. There was a bounce in my step, a giggle on my tongue; I was feeling like I was 20 something. I had not felt this good since I cannot remember how long. Then it happened. No matter how good you might feel some day, there is always something or someone who can undermine that and put you in your proper place. My mistake was going into the bathroom. There in the bathroom for all the world to see, especially me is this ghastly object called a mirror. When I looked into the mirror, I was shocked to see I was not alone. I thought I had come into the bathroom by myself but there in the mirror was this old guy I hardly recognized. My first reaction was to ask him to leave the bathroom and then I noticed So this is what new really looks like something. That person in the mirror was me! All of those exhilarating feelings dissipated as reality grabbed hold of my soul and soundly shook me. In my Bible reading that morning, I read what the apostle Paul said. And be renewed in the spirit of your minds; and that she put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4:23-24 KJV). Only God, in His wisdom, can create in me something that is truly new.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

But dont rush to call her lucky. She heard a piercing whistle, felt the building shake, and then was engulfed by a fireball blasted from the elevator bank. Running from the tower in flames, she hurled herself on a patch of grass where a stranger put out her fire and covered her with his jacket. From the start Manning took charge of her own recovery. Knowing that St. Vincents Hospital, where she was taken, was not equipped to treat the burns that covered 82 percent of her body, she repeatedly asked to be transferred to Weill Cornell Medical Centers burn unit. Days later her request was honored and she began learning to live again. After the books dramatic opening we learn about Mannings privileged but uneventful life that scarcely prepared her for the ordeal shed face for almost 10 years. Through the haze of pain and skin grafts, the ever-present threat of infection she keeps asking husband Greg about her friends at Cantor Fitzgerald. Weeks pass and finally shes told that 638 of the companys employees had perished. Her reaction is that of an avenging angel swearing to get those bastards yet knowing that revenge is a job for others. The scrappiness that propelled her to success in her career would serve her well in recovering. In time she even began devising ways to beat her injuries. Pain was my opponent: I studied it and anticipated the ways it would try to take me down. When she was well enough, she and Greg told their story over and over againto the New York Times, to Katie Couric on the Today Show and to Oprah Winfrey. Greg, too, escaped death that fateful day. He was scheduled to attend a breakfast at Windows on the World but helped out a friend at the last minute. Despite their extensive coverage the distinction of Mannings memoir lies in her aggressive insistence on her own dignity and independence.

It brings to mind many memories of when I worked in the big apple.Really?Probably the most famous street in New York is Broadway, a name that is synonymous with Theater. The street name derives from an incident in the early days, when an opera diva, a Valkyrie type, stood outside the opera house and a passing theatergoer asked, How much does that broad weigh?Central ParkEven if you like New York, it can do things to a person. Ten years ago, this guy was a prominent judge in Manhattan; now, hes a wino living in Central Park. But out of respect people still say, May I approach the bench? A trainee for the Police Department was asked this hypothetical question: If your beat was a lonely path in Central Park, and a beautiful young girl rushed up to you and declared that a strange man had suddenly grabbed, hugged and kissed her, what would you do? The police-officer-intraining replied without hesitation, I would endeavor to reconstruct the crime. When the police were called one night to arrest a group of mimes giving a hotfoot to any man found sleeping on a bench in Central Park, the officer in charge explained to a new recruit, These are the mimes that fry mens soles. At an outdoor production of Julius Caesar, the people in Central Park were enthralled, but when Caesar was stabbed, about half the audience left. They didnt want to get involved.SubwaysThe New York subway system, alone of all the mass transit systems of the world, has maps inside rather than outside the trains. It forces you to get on the wrong train in order to find out where youre going. You decipher the map to discover that the first step in reaching your destination is to get off the wrong train at the next stop. According to some people, the reason a subway had to be built to Brooklyn was so the people who lived there could get home without being seen. There were six million fewer passengers in the New York subway last year. Nobody noticed. John was sitting on the subway and when a man came over, he said, Are you reading the paper? John replied, Yes, stood up, turned the page, and sat down again.TravelsA commuter is one who has a complaint of long standing. Its very difficult to get a parking ticket in NYC; first you have to find a place to park. If you hit them, you have to fill out a report, explained a taxi driver as he skillfully missed a pedestrian. Any time four New Yorkers get into a cab without arguing, a bank robbery has just taken place. The population of New York keeps going up. There are so many tollbooths on roads leading out of the city nobody can afford to leave. In New York City the only thing worse than raining cats and dogs is hailing taxis. The reporter asked, Now that youre living in the suburb, what do you miss most? The last train home, replied the commuter.A home runA man left Rome and came to New York where he worked as a cook in an Italian restaurant near Yankee Stadium. He became an avid baseball fan and for a brief period, left his job to become an umpire. He soon realized that his real future was in cuisine and he opened his own restaurant near the stadium. He was very successful and became renowned for his chicken risotto. Edward Gibbon wrote about the story in the epic Rice and Fowl of the Roman Umpire.Tall taleThe guide said, That is a skyscraper. A little old English lady tourist said, Oh, my. Id love to see it work! War of the wordsTwo trucks loaded with a thousand copies of Rogets Thesaurus collided as they left a New York publishing house last Thursday, according to the Associated Press. Witnesses were stunned, startled, aghast, taken aback, stupefied, amazed, astounded, and unsettled.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Thats OK a love of New England is all you need! A fun time was had by everyone who attended the New England Club social in the Arbor Club Ballroom on Dec. 20. It was an afternoon of Christmas music, games, and a fabulous Christmas dinner cooked and served by the board members. Following dinner, there was a scrumptious display of desserts supplied by many generous members. Needless to say, at the end of the day everyone rolled out of there with full bellies. Everyone participated in a Christmas sing-a-long, led by Martha Gray; Dick Gray played the piano. The Grays were a very lively and fun addition to our day! Lots of laughs were had during the re-gifting swap and each person was handed their gift by the clubs very own Santa Claus. Its amazing how many people like to sit on Santas lap! Thank you Santa! The New England Club meeting schedule is the third Thursday of each month, October through May, in the Arbor Club Ballroom.

Audrey Mangan can be reached at 352-854-7074 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. If the New Years Eve party at Cherrywood is any indication of what kind of year 2013 will be; we are in for the best year ever. A capacity crowd gathered at the clubhouse to enjoy a wide variety of finger foods; be entertained by the fantastic band, Rainbow Connection; and count down the hours and minutes of the New Year while sipping Champagne with friends and neighbors. When residents pulled up to the clubhouse, they were met by Rich Becotte, who met them with a warm handshake and held the door while they entered the beautifully decorated facility. Once inside, Eve Houghtaling greeted every guest and made them feel welcome while Monica Becotte dispensed 50/50 tickets as she collected each persons admission ticket. Two long tables held a delightful array of sweets; cheeses; veggies; fruits; crackers and tea sandwiches. There was something for everyones taste and appetite. There was no shortage of these goodies that were enjoyed by all. The fantastic band, Rainbow Connection, played a wide variety of music giving everyone the opportunity to dance up a storm and dance they did. Everything from the Chicken Dance to an impromptu chorus line dancing to the strains of New York New York was seen on our dance floor with everything in between. Big Band era music mixed with early Rock n Roll blended with Show Tunes and wrapped up in Pop. Musically, the entertainment was just plain terrific and there was something for everyone as they listened and danced the hours away. At around 11, just one hour before the magic hour of midnight, Eve and Rich held the 50/50 drawings and the winning ticket was chosen for the door prize. Our winner was Judy Mandziara. As the hour clicked away, those gathered got another unexpected treat. Ruth and Richard Hurleys daughter, Susan, was visiting from her home state of Arizona. Little did any of us know that Susan had just received her Doctorate from the University of Arizona in Musical Arts. Her Major is in Voice Performance and she was kind enough to grace us with a song. Susan sang Memories, the theme song from the smash musical hit Cats. From the first note she struck, the audience was mesmerized. Every word; every note; every inflection of that music was right on; to the point of leaving the crowd breathless. When she finished the final refrain, the roof nearly came down with the applause of a standing ovation by every single person present. Impressive doesnt even begin to describe the beauty of Susans voice or her limitless talent. Moments later, the room was filled with the sound of popping corks reminiscent of the Boston Pops atmosphere. 2012 was quickly coming to an end and the anticipation of the New Year was electric in those gathered. The band began the traditional countdown, the clock struck 12 and the strains of Auld Lang Syne rang out. Well wishes swept the room with kissing; laughter; hugs and smiles. 2013 had arrived and had been lovingly welcomed. We know that whatever the New Year may bring, we at Cherrywood will embrace it or endure it together as not only a community; but as a family. Happy New Year!Karaoke Night Saturday, Jan. 12 at 7 p.m., join your friends and neighbors at the clubhouse for another rousing night of Karaoke fun. Bring your voices and your own refreshments and come on out for an enjoyable evening of watching and listening to people amaze and astound you or daze you; (Im sure there will be some of both at this fun night). Everyone is welcome to step up to the microphone and sing their favorite songs for the enjoyment of the rest of us. Bill LaVertue and company have over 40,000 songs to choose from so youre sure to find one that you know.

If youre looking for an inexpensive evening of really good entertainment, come down to the clubhouse for Karaoke Night. Everyone is welcome to sing and if you are shy, ask your friends to join you or invite the crowd to sing along. Theres no judging and no prizes; just good times.Camera ClubThere is no Camera Club on Friday the 18th of January. The next meeting will be held on Friday, Feb. 1. Everyone who has any interest in photography is encouraged to come to the library on that date and share your knowledge and experience with the rest of us.George Hamilton and ElvisThe next big event for Cherrywood is on Saturday, Jan. 26, when two monster talents team up on our stage. Dave Atkins does an Elvis Tribute that will have you convinced that Elvis is alive and well here in Ocala. Reputed to be one of the top Elvis Tribute specialists in the country, Dave will entertain with a wide variety of hits from the King of Rock & Roll. Not only does Dave have the fantastic voice of the King but he also has all the moves and style. A virtual look alike of the famous Elvis, Dave keeps the audience going with all the tunes that were part of our lives. Many a fond memory will be evoked by Daves show as well as an all around good time. The second huge talent appearing that night is George Hamilton IV. George has been a long time member of the Grand Old Opry and his many world tours earned him the name of International Ambassador of Country Music. Georges life time ambition to be a rock-a-billy star led him and his family to Nashville in 1959. The next year his record, A Rose and a Baby Ruth hit Gold Record status. In February of 1960, George became an official member of the Opry and the rest, as they say, is history. Abilene; Fort Worth, Dallas or Houston and Before This Day Ends were just a few of the big songs that made it on the charts for George in the years that followed. Now, much to our pleasure, both Dave and George will be appearing on our stage for one great night of entertainment. Tickets are nearly gone for this performance so see Geri ASAP to get your tickets for only $5 per person and to reserve your place in the clubhouse.

Sports SundaySee the notices posted in the clubhouse for information on the upcoming February 3rd Sports Sunday event or ask Geri for details.

Biloxi trip in FebruaryThe last trip to Biloxi was a sell outbut dont fret or worry, theres another one coming up on Feb. 17 through the 20th with many of the same benefits and perks that were in the last excursion. Transportation will be by deluxe motor coach; accommodations at the IP Casino Resort and Spa; $25 in free slot play and $24 in Food Coupons.

All veterans and their spouses are urged to attend and those interested in the work of the veterans of Cherrywood are also invited to take part.

A damp chill was in the air that penetrated even the hoodies that most people were wearing. The weather couldnt have been more atypical of Florida because there was no sunshine to warm the afternoon and the gloomy gray skies. Tim Delaney was doing his chores around the house while his two dogs watched out the front door storm-window from the comfort of their living room. In the yard, Tim saw a small white dog looking bewildered.

Friday, January 11, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, January 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com clean fur; but she looked confused and alone. Approaching the little creature, Tim was gentle in his voice and manner so as not to frighten the little girl dog more than she already was. Slowly he picked up the shaking little animal and brought her into his house much to the enjoyment and excitement of his own two dogs. A quick check by Tims expert hands showed no signs of injury to the stray but unfortunately, there was no collar showing who owned this loveable bundle of fur. Surely, he thought, some one has taken good care of this animal and must be going crazy looking for it. On a late Saturday afternoon the Dog Pound wasnt open and night was beginning to fall. While the puppy rested safe and secure in the Delaney home, Tim set out to find whoever had lost the dog. While his wife cared for the little one, Tim got in his car and began searching. At that time of day, many of the dog owners around the Prairie of Cherrywood take their four legged kids for a walk. Everyone that Tim encountered he would ask if they had seen anyone looking for a lost dog. He described the dog in detail and wondered if it was a Cherrywood resident who had lost it. None of the pet owners Tim met had seen or heard anything at and all and had no knowledge about anyone with that kind of a dog. As is often the case, when there is a problem, the news began to spread throughout the neighborhood. Phones lit up and people began actively looking for the owner but with no success. Darkness fell and the wind blew a winter like coldness through the air. While the little stray was snug and warm in the loving arms of Tim and his wife Daphne; everyone worried about the owners. All the dog owners considered what they would be going through if it was one of their pets that was lost and out on such a night; hungry; thirsty; cold and worst of all, alone. The next day was slightly warmer with a bit more sunshine. A small platoon of pet owners took to the streets in their cars; on bikes and on foot. They looked for posted signs; looked for strangers looking for their lost dog; they looked for anything that could reunite this dog with its person. Throughout the Cherrywood neighborhood and surrounding communities the people went. They talked with perfect strangers who were out taking care of their lawns; working in their garages or just plain walking down the street. Sunday, as night fell, there was still no word on who owned the dog we shall call, Mandy. For a second night she would be Tim and Daphnes house guest, much to the delight of their two dogs. Mandy was quite a curiosity to them. It was that evening that they discovered Mandy was blind in one eye and had a touch of arthritis. The Delaneys began to wonder if Mandy was supposed to be on medications. Tim had decided to check with the local vets office to see if Mandy had a chip that would reveal the owner but before doing that, he would call the Humane Society on Monday morning when they opened. When he phoned the authorities, Tim gave them Mandys description; where and when she was found and left his phone number should anyone call in looking for her. Less than a half hour later, Tims phone rang. When he picked it up, he knew that the owner had been found. He agreed to meet them at the entrance to Cherrywood right away. Mandy said good bye to her hosts in the language that only dogs can speak but everyone who has a pet understands. Happily, she then calmly got into the car with Tim. At the appointed meeting place, a car pulled up containing, among others, two young girls. The reunion that followed was like a scene from an old Lassie movie as kisses; hugs; and joyful tears flowed. It was New Year;s Eve and Mandy was back in the arms of her loving family; safe from the dangers and hardships of a cold, cruel world. Tim and Daphne have been featured in the Spotlight on Excellence before. Their kindness; compassion; love and care were duly noted in that article but this incident just pointed out even more dramatically, the kind of wonderful people they are. In addition, the concern displayed by the dozens of other Cherrywood residents is so very typical of the family atmosphere that exists in this community. If ever there was a story that exemplified the type of people that live here, this was it. That is why Mandy; her guardian angels and all of her friends made it to our Spotlight on Excellence this edition. Please note, the name of the dog was changed and no identifying owner information was given out to protect their privacy.

If youre looking for an inexpensive evening of really good entertainment, come down to the clubhouse for Karaoke Night. Everyone is welcome to sing and if you are shy, ask your friends to join you or invite the crowd to sing along. Theres no judging and no prizes; just good times.Camera ClubThere is no Camera Club on Friday the 18th of January. The next meeting will be held on Friday, Feb. 1. Everyone who has any interest in photography is encouraged to come to the library on that date and share your knowledge and experience with the rest of us.George Hamilton and ElvisThe next big event for Cherrywood is on Saturday, Jan. 26, when two monster talents team up on our stage. Dave Atkins does an Elvis Tribute that will have you convinced that Elvis is alive and well here in Ocala. Reputed to be one of the top Elvis Tribute specialists in the country, Dave will entertain with a wide variety of hits from the King of Rock & Roll. Not only does Dave have the fantastic voice of the King but he also has all the moves and style. A virtual look alike of the famous Elvis, Dave keeps the audience going with all the tunes that were part of our lives. Many a fond memory will be evoked by Daves show as well as an all around good time. The second huge talent appearing that night is George Hamilton IV. George has been a long time member of the Grand Old Opry and his many world tours earned him the name of International Ambassador of Country Music. Georges life time ambition to be a rock-a-billy star led him and his family to Nashville in 1959. The next year his record, A Rose and a Baby Ruth hit Gold Record status. In February of 1960, George became an official member of the Opry and the rest, as they say, is history. Abilene; Fort Worth, Dallas or Houston and Before This Day Ends were just a few of the big songs that made it on the charts for George in the years that followed. Now, much to our pleasure, both Dave and George will be appearing on our stage for one great night of entertainment. Tickets are nearly gone for this performance so see Geri ASAP to get your tickets for only $5 per person and to reserve your place in the clubhouse. Dont be surprised if you dont see this activity listed in future editions of the Citizen because the tickets are nearly gone. You are urged not to miss out on this special night hosted by the Activities Committee of Cherrywood. Sports SundaySee the notices posted in the clubhouse for information on the upcoming February 3rd Sports Sunday event or ask Geri for details. This should be a great time and if you are a fan, you wont want to miss out. Contests, raffles and food proceeds all go to benefit the Wounded Warrior Fund. Biloxi trip in FebruaryThe last trip to Biloxi was a sell outbut dont fret or worry, theres another one coming up on Feb. 17 through the 20th with many of the same benefits and perks that were in the last excursion. Transportation will be by deluxe motor coach; accommodations at the IP Casino Resort and Spa; $25 in free slot play and $24 in Food Coupons.

A damp chill was in the air that penetrated even the hoodies that most people were wearing. The weather couldnt have been more atypical of Florida because there was no sunshine to warm the afternoon and the gloomy gray skies. Tim Delaney was doing his chores around the house while his two dogs watched out the front door storm-window from the comfort of their living room. In the yard, Tim saw a small white dog looking bewildered.

Thats OK a love of New England is all you need! A fun time was had by everyone who attended the New England Club social in the Arbor Club Ballroom on Dec. 20. It was an afternoon of Christmas music, games, and a fabulous Christmas dinner cooked and served by the board members. Following dinner, there was a scrumptious display of desserts supplied by many generous members. Needless to say, at the end of the day everyone rolled out of there with full bellies. Everyone participated in a Christmas sing-a-long, led by Martha Gray; Dick Gray played the piano. The Grays were a very lively and fun addition to our day! Lots of laughs were had during the re-gifting swap and each person was handed their gift by the clubs very own Santa Claus. Its amazing how many people like to sit on Santas lap! Thank you Santa!

A capacity crowd gathered at the clubhouse to enjoy a wide variety of finger foods; be entertained by the fantastic band, Rainbow Connection; and count down the hours and minutes of the New Year while sipping Champagne with friends and neighbors. When residents pulled up to the clubhouse, they were met by Rich Becotte, who met them with a warm handshake and held the door while they entered the beautifully decorated facility. Once inside, Eve Houghtaling greeted every guest and made them feel welcome while Monica Becotte dispensed 50/50 tickets as she collected each persons admission ticket. Two long tables held a delightful array of sweets; cheeses; veggies; fruits; crackers and tea sandwiches. There was something for everyones taste and appetite. There was no shortage of these goodies that were enjoyed by all. The fantastic band, Rainbow Connection, played a wide variety of music giving everyone the opportunity to dance up a storm and dance they did. Everything from the Chicken Dance to an impromptu chorus line dancing to the strains of New York New York was seen on our dance floor with everything in between. Big Band era music mixed with early Rock n Roll blended with Show Tunes and wrapped up in Pop. Musically, the entertainment was just plain terrific and there was something for everyone as they listened and danced the hours away. At around 11, just one hour before the magic hour of midnight, Eve and Rich held the 50/50 drawings and the winning ticket was chosen for the door prize. Our winner was Judy Mandziara. As the hour clicked away, those gathered got another unexpected treat. Ruth and Richard Hurleys daughter, Susan, was visiting from her home state of Arizona. Little did any of us know that Susan had just received her Doctorate from the University of Arizona in Musical Arts. Her Major is in Voice Performance and she was kind enough to grace us with a song. Susan sang Memories, the theme song from the smash musical hit Cats. From the first note she struck, the audience was mesmerized. Every word; every note; every inflection of that music was right on; to the point of leaving the crowd breathless. When she finished the final refrain, the roof nearly came down with the applause of a standing ovation by every single person present. Impressive doesnt even begin to describe the beauty of Susans voice or her limitless talent. Moments later, the room was filled with the sound of popping corks reminiscent of the Boston Pops atmosphere. 2012 was quickly coming to an end and the anticipation of the New Year was electric in those gathered. The band began the traditional countdown, the clock struck 12 and the strains of Auld Lang Syne rang out. Well wishes swept the room with kissing; laughter; hugs and smiles. 2013 had arrived and had been lovingly welcomed. We know that whatever the New Year may bring, we at Cherrywood will embrace it or endure it together as not only a community; but as a family. Happy New Year!Karaoke Night Saturday, Jan. 12 at 7 p.m., join your friends and neighbors at the clubhouse for another rousing night of Karaoke fun. Bring your voices and your own refreshments and come on out for an enjoyable evening of watching and listening to people amaze and astound you or daze you; (Im sure there will be some of both at this fun night). Everyone is welcome to step up to the microphone and sing their favorite songs for the enjoyment of the rest of us. Bill LaVertue and company have over 40,000 songs to choose from so youre sure to find one that you know.

It brings to mind many memories of when I worked in the big apple.Really?Probably the most famous street in New York is Broadway, a name that is synonymous with Theater. The street name derives from an incident in the early days, when an opera diva, a Valkyrie type, stood outside the opera house and a passing theatergoer asked, How much does that broad weigh?Central ParkEven if you like New York, it can do things to a person. Ten years ago, this guy was a prominent judge in Manhattan; now, hes a wino living in Central Park. But out of respect people still say, May I approach the bench? A trainee for the Police Department was asked this hypothetical question: If your beat was a lonely path in Central Park, and a beautiful young girl rushed up to you and declared that a strange man had suddenly grabbed, hugged and kissed her, what would you do? The police-officer-intraining replied without hesitation, I would endeavor to reconstruct the crime. When the police were called one night to arrest a group of mimes giving a hotfoot to any man found sleeping on a bench in Central Park, the officer in charge explained to a new recruit, These are the mimes that fry mens soles. At an outdoor production of Julius Caesar, the people in Central Park were enthralled, but when Caesar was stabbed, about half the audience left. They didnt want to get involved.SubwaysThe New York subway system, alone of all the mass transit systems of the world, has maps inside rather than outside the trains. It forces you to get on the wrong train in order to find out where youre going. You decipher the map to discover that the first step in reaching your destination is to get off the wrong train at the next stop. According to some people, the reason a subway had to be built to Brooklyn was so the people who lived there could get home without being seen. There were six million fewer passengers in the New York subway last year. Nobody noticed. John was sitting on the subway and when a man came over, he said, Are you reading the paper? John replied, Yes, stood up, turned the page, and sat down again.TravelsA commuter is one who has a complaint of long standing. Its very difficult to get a parking ticket in NYC; first you have to find a place to park. If you hit them, you have to fill out a report, explained a taxi driver as he skillfully missed a pedestrian. Any time four New Yorkers get into a cab without arguing, a bank robbery has just taken place. The population of New York keeps going up. There are so many tollbooths on roads leading out of the city nobody can afford to leave. In New York City the only thing worse than raining cats and dogs is hailing taxis. The reporter asked, Now that youre living in the suburb, what do you miss most? The last train home, replied the commuter.A home runA man left Rome and came to New York where he worked as a cook in an Italian restaurant near Yankee Stadium. He became an avid baseball fan and for a brief period, left his job to become an umpire. He soon realized that his real future was in cuisine and he opened his own restaurant near the stadium. He was very successful and became renowned for his chicken risotto. Edward Gibbon wrote about the story in the epic Rice and Fowl of the Roman Umpire.Tall taleThe guide said, That is a skyscraper. A little old English lady tourist said, Oh, my. Id love to see it work! War of the wordsTwo trucks loaded with a thousand copies of Rogets Thesaurus collided as they left a New York publishing house last Thursday, according to the Associated Press. Witnesses were stunned, startled, aghast, taken aback, stupefied, amazed, astounded, and unsettled.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

The Porterfields moved to Oak Run some 19 years ago and have been very active in the theatre groups as cast members, directors and producers. Frank is a past president of both groups of the newly merged performing arts company and Diane has served on both boards. They have been involved in 17 plays and Diane has directed 14 of them. Diane is one of the rare, native, Floridians while Frank is from Michigan. Their past theatre experience is vastly different. Diane has been involved since preschool days, whereas Franks only experience was a small part in the 8th grade in HMS Pinafore, his only other experience was as a writer. While serving a tour of duty in the Army in Alaska he tried his hand at writing short stories, none of which were ever published. After moving to Oak Run Dianes love of theatre was rekindled when she learned of the local Way Off Broadway and Little Theatre clubs. She lured Frank into taking a part in Bedside Manor which she was directing, after the person playing the role of a female dietitian took sick and had to drop out. What she hadnt told him was that he had to play the role as a woman!! He was hooked; the greasepaint was in his blood. Each week we will try and interest our potential audiences with tidbits about other cast and crew members. Please try and get your tickets early for the best seating. If you cannot make one of the scheduled public ticket sales you can make purchases by phoning Shari Weber at 352-854-0116 for the dinner show and Linda Noel at 352-873-9908 for all other shows. Reading Volunteer GroupLove to read? Love kids? Our Reading Volunteer Group is looking for enthusiastic people to visit two of our local elementary schools and read to the lower grades. It would only take up about an hour of your time, six mornings a year each (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) at Sunrise and Marion Oaks Elementary Schools. The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you are escorted by two of the children to their classroom.

Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures in the wonderful world of books.

Friday, January 11, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, January 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com It was just before New Years and the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were relaxing after a busy week of toil and labor. Not paying much attention to my surroundings, I had immersed myself in a favorite book. As far as I am concerned, nothing compares to a favorite book when you are trying to relax and unwind. I turned the page and happened to notice on the other side of the room my wife was all a twitchy. I have seen this behavior before and I knew she was anxious to say something. I pretended not to notice. Finally, it was as if she exploded. I cant wait for the New Year. Arent you excited? I answered in the affirmative to try to keep the conversation as minimal as possible. No, I mean arent you really excited about the New Year? I knew if I was going to get back to my book I would have to let her say, what was on her mind. According to her, the approaching New Year was going to be spectacular. Everything old, she explained to me, would be new again. We have been in this New Year for a couple of weeks now and, I will not contradict my wife, at least aloud, but this New Year looks suspiciously like the Old Year. I am not quite sure what she thought would be different this year, but to me it is just the old year run through again. And, that is good with me. I am not one of these persons who needs the latest flash in the pan. I quite prefer the tried and true. It was about two weeks after the New Year and my wife said, Ill be back in an hour or two, Im going shopping. It did not dawn on me at the time but about 10 minutes later, it did. The reason my wife was so excited about the New Year was that she was going to go out and buy some new clothes. After all, according to her calculations, the New Year deserves new clothing. I smiled as I thought about her going to the store trying on dresses, seeking one that would fit her both in size and in fancy. As for me, I am quite comfortable in my old clothes. They fit me just fine, thank you. Women have to look fine all the time. Men, on the other hand are not that particular about what they wear. I can wear the same shirt for days on end and feel just as comfortable as the first day I put it on. My clothing does not make me feel any younger. I go along with the saying that says you are only as old as you feel. Of course, I do have some of those Methuselah moments. Everything old was once new and if new last very long it ends up being old. Therefore, whatever is old was once new and whatever is new will one day be old. This is where most people make their mistake. They fail to see the relationship between old and new. For example, as much as our culture pretends to be youth oriented, it does everything to get old while looking young. I often have this conversation with my wife. I am not old, I am just getting older and my plans are to get older and older and older. The great object in life is to get as old as you possibly can while looking and feeling new. Nothing to me is sillier than a 40 year old trying to act 20. The mind may say 20, but the body really knows it is 40. If people would put the money they spend to look young in a 401(k) their golden years would truly be golden. How much money is spent each year on plastic surgery? What I want to know is, who in the world do they think they are fooling? Their mirror? Right after the New Years celebration, I got up one morning feeling terrific. There was a bounce in my step, a giggle on my tongue; I was feeling like I was 20 something. I had not felt this good since I cannot remember how long. Then it happened. No matter how good you might feel some day, there is always something or someone who can undermine that and put you in your proper place. My mistake was going into the bathroom. There in the bathroom for all the world to see, especially me is this ghastly object called a mirror. When I looked into the mirror, I was shocked to see I was not alone. I thought I had come into the bathroom by myself but there in the mirror was this old guy I hardly recognized. My first reaction was to ask him to leave the bathroom and then I noticed So this is what new really looks like something. That person in the mirror was me! All of those exhilarating feelings dissipated as reality grabbed hold of my soul and soundly shook me. In my Bible reading that morning, I read what the apostle Paul said. And be renewed in the spirit of your minds; and that she put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4:23-24 KJV). Only God, in His wisdom, can create in me something that is truly new.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

But dont rush to call her lucky. She heard a piercing whistle, felt the building shake, and then was engulfed by a fireball blasted from the elevator bank. Running from the tower in flames, she hurled herself on a patch of grass where a stranger put out her fire and covered her with his jacket. From the start Manning took charge of her own recovery. Knowing that St. Vincents Hospital, where she was taken, was not equipped to treat the burns that covered 82 percent of her body, she repeatedly asked to be transferred to Weill Cornell Medical Centers burn unit. Days later her request was honored and she began learning to live again. After the books dramatic opening we learn about Mannings privileged but uneventful life that scarcely prepared her for the ordeal shed face for almost 10 years. Through the haze of pain and skin grafts, the ever-present threat of infection she keeps asking husband Greg about her friends at Cantor Fitzgerald. Weeks pass and finally shes told that 638 of the companys employees had perished. Her reaction is that of an avenging angel swearing to get those bastards yet knowing that revenge is a job for others. The scrappiness that propelled her to success in her career would serve her well in recovering. In time she even began devising ways to beat her injuries. Pain was my opponent: I studied it and anticipated the ways it would try to take me down. When she was well enough, she and Greg told their story over and over againto the New York Times, to Katie Couric on the Today Show and to Oprah Winfrey. Greg, too, escaped death that fateful day. He was scheduled to attend a breakfast at Windows on the World but helped out a friend at the last minute. Despite their extensive coverage the distinction of Mannings memoir lies in her aggressive insistence on her own dignity and independence.

An analogy is a partial likeness between two things when compared. During the December holiday season we were deluged with predictions and nonsense about the fiscal cliff, and the end of the world, threatening concerns for our nation and the planet. According to Congress and the White House, the fiscal cliff is located in Washington, D.C. We experienced months of national anxiety that falling off the governments financial cliff would have dire consequences for every bank and stock exchange in the world. Similarly threatening was completion of The Great Maya Cycle, known more disturbingly as the end of the world according to the Mayan calendar. One positive aspect of reaching the end of the Mayan calendar is www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, January 11, 2013 The quarterly reading of the names of recently deceased veterans never fails to be impressive. Last Saturday, a few hardy souls gathered in Veterans Memorial Park in Ocala, amid cool temperatures and a cooler wind chill, to honor those veterans who died during the last three months of 2012. If youve never been to the ceremony, its worth a trip. Its held the first Saturday of each quarter at the park, and features an opening prayer, some music, usually by a church group, and a 21gun salute by members of the Sheriffs Department. But the most important moments come during the reading of the names. Each veterans name is read, followed by the date of death and his branch of service. Non-stop during the readings is a somber drum roll, and as the reader pauses after each name, a bell is rung twice. Those are the only noises you hear as the crowd sits silently through the event. Some handkerchiefs wipe the eyes occasionally, especially as those who are there for the first time hear the name of a loved one. This is the 10th year of the quarterly ceremony, which means it was taking place when my father died in 2004. Unfortunately, I was working out of town at the time and was unaware of the fledgling event. Had I known, I certainly would have been there, and it would have provided me with a memory that would exist for the rest of my days. What makes the ceremony even more powerful is the setting. The park sits at the corner of Fort King Street and 25th Avenue East, within view of Silver Springs Boulevard, behind the Veterans Service Office. Its a beautiful venue, with paths and benches, monuments, displays, and a large grass setting in the center. The benches are placed in memory of various veterans whose names are inscribed on the front of the seats. There are other ways that local veterans are remembered. There is also an area where those from the county who were killed in action are listed. It was announced Saturday that Markie T. Sims, who was recently killed in Afghanistan, would be added to that list. Sims in-laws were at Saturdays ceremony. Someday when you have a little time, take a trip over and just wander through the park, which is wheelchair-friendly. Youll find yourself deep in thought about those who are honored by this facility. There are other regular events at the park. The next one comes up on Sunday, Feb. 3, at 3 p.m. to honor The Four Chaplains, four who gave their lives to save others. Yes, I know Feb. 3 is Super Bowl Sunday, but the game isnt until after 6 in the evening, so go ahead out to the park. You wont regret it.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

The headline in a New York newspaper talked about how a woman who lost two sons on 9/11 was upset with the 67 members of the U.S. House of Representatives who voted against aid for Hurricane Sandy. She has a right to be. One of Marion Countys representatives, Ted Yoho of Gainesville, was one of those who cast a negative vote. It was not an auspicious start for the newly sworn-in Republican congressman from Gainesville, the man who defeated Cliff Stearns. Yoho reportedly said he was sticking by his principles of not having the federal government involved in this type of situation. While his principle may be praised by many, there is no alternative in place to help the people of the New York area, some of whom are still living in tent cities. Yoho should instead work to establish methods by which the states and cities can help refugees of a disaster such as Sandy. Only when such aid is available should he take the attitude that the federal government shouldnt be helping those folks. The people in New York have a right to remind the 67 representatives that federal funds are partially their money, and voting not to give it back to them when its desperately needed is withholding from the victims what is their due. The new congressman showed a lack of compassion in his vote. He has already taken on the label of rebel after casting a vote for Eric Cantor over John Boehner for Speaker of the House, one of only nine votes Cantor, who wasnt even running for the position, received. Now hes being labeled worse than a rebel for his choice to vote against those who need help up north. Someday, because of our geography, we could be the ones seeking aid after a hurricane. We have to wonder what our rebel would do then.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Yoho puts politics ahead of humanity Reading of vets names impressive Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Why our world has yet to come to an end Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED that it would be less painful for politicians than a collapse of banks and stock exchanges. With their last breaths politicians could shout proudly It wasnt our fault! The president and Congress would have us believe they pulled us back from the fiscal cliff during a New Years Eve chorus of Auld Lang Syne. Congress is fond of seemingly heroic, last-minute rescues. In reality Congress and the president just kicked the can down the road again. They didnt even back the fiscal bus off the cliff. The end of financial stability is already on their 2013 calendar. Within 10 years, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid will be 50 percent of the federal budget. Add defense spending and payment of interest on the national debt, and there wont be much budget left for pork-barrel spending. Congress and the White House have a persistent fantasy that there is no limitation to American prosperity as long as they can borrow more trillions of dollars from countries which have built great wealth by selling their products in the United States. Is it possible some similar financial crisis happened to the highly developed Mayan civilization and caused their 15 million citizens to disappear from the planet around 900AD never to be heard of again? After centuries of discussion among anthropologists, archeologists, astronomers, historians, and linguists, the current consensus is that climate change destroyed the Mayan civilization. Environmentalists and Al Gore must be ecstatic. There may be an alternative explanation, which the scholars didnt consider. Our first thought was that perhaps the Mayan calendar came to an end on Dec. 21, 2012 because the writers ran out of paper. However, the Mayans didnt print calendars. They carved them in stone. Maybe they ran out of rocks because they built too many government pyramids. Our conclusion is that strife between political parties was the most likely cause of the mysterious end of the Mayan civilization. Mayapublicans, whose supporters created the wealth of the Mayans, probably adjourned for a holiday and never returned. Within a few decades, the dogoody Mayacrats ran out of money and went in search of the Mayapublicans. They too never returned. Some things never change. Read the classifieds No need to pretendAre your ears and eyes open? Can you hear the clicking, clicking, clicking of the price going up even as you are filling up at the gas pump? The election is over, no need to pretend any longer. The useful idiots have performed perfectly. They have come through with flying colors. No further need of the charade. Did you just see that 2 percent tax just slip away out of your paycheck? He said he would raise taxes. You did not believe him? Next on the agenda: the rise in insurance premiums, did you get yours? Medical costs will be next. More taxes, next. Where will it end? Useful idiots are not a myth, or a joke, they are for real. The useful idiot in chief tells them so, and they believe everything that is said. Including the lies. Keep on believing useful idiots believe yourself straight into slavery. You are begging for it. Just remember, you have been warned. The world is so much bigger than your little circle. Do not take my word for it, pick up a book, and read something for yourself. My I suggest you try the Constitution and the Bill of Rights for starters. Then try The Law by Frederic Bastiat, only 70 pages. D.I. Larson OcalaMental healthAll the stories following the massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and six adults were killed by a deranged young man, have been tales of people going back and forth on the gun issue. Should we outlaw assault weapons? Should be outlaw individual possession of guns? Should be arm our teachers (a terrible idea, makes it easier for a kid in a classroom to grab a gun and start shooting)? There should be more focus on the mental health issues. In this case, what makes a young man prepare and carry out a mission to kill a bunch of defenseless little children in classrooms at an elementary school. The system needs to worry about identifying potential offenders and getting them treatment. Parents need to take responsibility, too. This killers mother fostered violence by providing the guns, and then she herself was killed by one of them. Instead of disarming the people, how about trying a cure instead? Maybe that will save some lives. Charles Thomas Ocala

He is probably an Australian Shepherd/Lab mix. Right now he is 35 pounds, but should fill out to about 40 to 50 pounds at adulthood. Jackson is a great dog sweet and friendly with two levels of obedience training under his belt already, with the certificates to prove it. Jackson was adopted as a young puppy from a kill shelter to be a companion to an old dog. Such a young, active dog turned out to be too playful for the older dog. The family did not wish to return him to the kill shelter, so Mary at Pet Network took him in. Jackson is house, leash, and crate trained, and gets along well with other dogs, although it may be best if he is the only dog in the household. He also loves to ride in the car and play with squeak toys. He would make a great companion for an active person or family, or for someone who likes their dogs medium sized. If you would like to meet Jackson, please call Mary at 352-5280270. Arlenes cats and kittens are still hoping for their forever homes. Coco and Panda, the kitten tuxedos pictured here, have become inseparable best friends and need to be placed together. So if you have room for two, Coco and Panda would fit the bill. They can amuse you for hours as they play together. Striking black kitten Ebony, also pictured here, is new to the group. Just 4 months old, she is loving and has taken quickly to foster care.

Friday, January 11, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, January 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be hurt by a colleagues harsh criticism. But dont let it shake your confidence in what youre trying to do. A more positive aspect starts to appear by weeks end. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Youre torn between your sensible self and the part of you that enjoys acquiring lovely things. Best advice: Wait for an end-of-month sale, and then buy something wonderful. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your artistic side has practical applications this week, such as redecorating your home or redesigning your personal stationery. Whatever you do, someone special will like it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You could be drawn into a problem twixt friends or family members. Best bet: Ask the questions that go to the heart of the matter, then get them all together for a group hug. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) As much as you love being the center of attention, your big Lions heart impels you to share the spotlight with a colleague who helped you with that wellpraised project. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your eagerness to act on a challenge is wisely tempered early in the week by a lack of necessary information. Things begin to clear up during the weekend. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A relationship youd hoped would keep going seems to be going nowhere. Close it out and move on to a brighter romantic aspect just beginning to manifest itself. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Things dont go completely as planned this week. But enjoy the surprises, even if you have to adjust your schedule. Some of them could be quite delightful. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Making choices is usually easy for straightshooting Archers. But a new development could deflect your aim. Try to put off decisions until you know more. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) While part of you might prefer taking a more familiar path, let your more daring and admit it super-curious self see what the unexplored has to offer. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Those nasty types have slithered back under the rocks and present no more problems. Nows the time to move ahead on that promising new relationship. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A new offer could clear up that lingering money problem. Also, a more confident attitude on your part might well help get that personal situation back on track. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of turning chaos into order. Youre also generous with your help for those who seek it. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Ongoing Reading Volunteer GroupLove to read? Love kids? Our Reading Volunteer Group is looking for enthusiastic people to visit two of our local elementary schools and read to the lower grades. It would only take up about an hour of your time, six mornings a year each (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) at Sunrise and Marion Oaks Elementary schools. The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you are escorted by two of the children to their classroom. Having the children around you engaged and anticipating the next page, discussing the book, sharing the pictures, and just being with them is a truly rewarding experience. Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures in the wonderful world of books. Call Addie Bambridge at 352-533-8666 to sign up or for more information. Marions Most Wanted K evin D ushay C ollins, 51, felony capias driving while license canceled suspended or revoked.

BRIEFS Coalition to hear from Laura ByrnesThe State Road 200 Coalition will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, Jan. 14, at the Collins Health Resource Center, Building 300, Suite 303, TimberRidge Medical Park, on Southwest 110th Street off State Road 200 in Ocala. The meeting begins at 1 p.m. with refreshments available at 12:30. Laura Byrnes of Workforce Connection will be the speaker. The meeting is open to the public.Woman who killed baby has diedA 20-year-old Ocala woman allegedly shot and killed her 6-month-old son on Friday, then reportedly turned the gun on herself. The mother, Melanie Reyes, survived the shooting, but was put on life support and died Tuesday morning. Marion County deputies responded to 4836 N.W. 45th Court in a development called the Fountains, off Northwest 44th Avenue, approximately one mile north of the Quail Meadow entrance. Arriving about 11:15 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 4, they had been dispatched to do a well-being check. Family members had called 911 to report Reyes had posted a statement on her Facebook page indicated she was going to shoot her child and herself. When deputies arrived, they found Reyes and her baby, Jonah Mendoza, 6 months, with gunshot wounds. Both were transported to the hospital. The baby died from his injuries. A handgun was recovered from the home and detectives are confident it was the gun used by Reyes in the shooting. No one else was at the house at the time. The boys father, Jordan Mendoza, is living elsewhere.

BY JIM CLARK EditorArea residents armed with statements against homeowner associations and developers came to Tuesdays Marion County Legislative Delegation ready to do battle, but a state senators comments at the opening of the meeting quickly let them know they would get little satisfaction. The delegation gathered at the Klein Center at Central Florida Community College for the five-hour meeting as a crowd composed mostly of representatives of local agencies filled the room. State Sen. Alan Hays, who represents Southeastern Marion, obviously had seen the several people on the agenda and their topic, and immediately let them know the facts. Hays said he was astounded at the last delegation meeting when he heard the vocal complaints. We took it on, he said of the people in Tallahassee, but we have yet to solve the problem, which he called gargantuan. It cannot be retroactive, you cant roll the calendar back and say you cant do that, Hays told the audience. We ran into brick walls, and some of them were reinforced. Hays added, Were still striving to solve the problem. It was about three hours later before the list of homeowners who had signed up to speak got to the podium. By then, State Sen. Charlie Dean, who at the start of the meeting had been elected chairman, was cracking down on the four-minute speaking limit. First up was Don Kronen, who said he had appeared before the delegation 16 months ago. Im very disappointed to be here again. Kronen said that lives have been devastated, finances decimated of many residents of developments.
