Nearly every way requires money. The principal fund raiser is the Red Kettle Campaign. A familiar sight this past holiday season at the Canopy Oak Publix, at each door, was the Bell Ringers. Ocala West UMC was the sponsor, but the participants came from all corners of the SR200 Corridor: Ocala West UMC congregational members, Spruce Creek Preserve Midway Club, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of all ages with their leaders as well as many other good hearted people. The Salvation Army had 20 Red Kettle locations and a good natured completion develops for the four fund raising trophies they award at the end of the campaign. This year Ocalas Salvation Armys Red Kettle Campaign raised $243,882.25. The fourth place winner went to Joe Weldon and the First Baptist Church of Ocala who collected $12,153.73. Third place was Ocala Kiwanis at $14,531.24 with second place team of Silver Springs Rotary raising $16,908.64. Due to the generosity of the good folks who shopped at Canopy Oak Publix, for the second straight year Ocala West UMC and its dedicated Bell Ringers received the first place trophy with a total collected of $18,898.22. Local churchs bell-ringers win competition Some practice, and some real work Ocala firefighters put in some practice last week in dousing aircraft fires at the Ocala International Airport, as seen in the two photos below. The training props included manikins to simulate passenger rescue and a mockup of an airplane. But also, firefighters got to battle a real blaze on Jan. 24 at 11:02 a.m. at the Paddock Park Apartments, 2901 S.W. 41st St., in building 2000. Smoke could initially be seen from several miles away, and upon arrival, firefighters observed flames coming through the roof of the two-story wood structure. The occupied building contained 16 aparments, and firefighters were quickly able to search the building to ensure everyone had safely evacuated. Fire and smoke damage was contained to just four of those apartments, and firefighters remained on scene for more than five hours, said Battalion Chief Wally Brinkman. The cause is under investigation. PHOTO BY JIM CLARKWMBA officersThe West Marion Business Associations new officers are shown at Tuesdays general meeting of the group. From the left are Michel Northsea, marketing; Conrad Melancon, vice president, Jim Martin, president and Erica Jones, secretary. Not available when photo was taken were Heather Cabrera, treasurer, and Vernetta Sealy, membership chair. A suspicious package with a powdery substance was delivered and opened at the Marion County Sheriffs Office at 8:50 a.m., Friday, Jan. 25, inside Sheriff ChrisBlairs office, 692 N.W. 30th Ave., Ocala. The assistant, who opened the letter, immediately called for help and emergency protocols were activated. The letter contained a direct threat to Blair. The assistant was not injured. Fire rescue professionals from both the Marion County Fire Rescue and the Ocala Fire Rescue took over the scene to contain the suspicious powder and package. This is serious, Blair said. The emotional stress on our employees will not be tolerated. Disrupting MCSO business will not be tolerated. And the emergency resources that were used could have been elsewhere protecting the community, Blair said. Along with fire agencies, the incident involved the Marion County Sheriffs Office Bomb Squad, MCSO Major Crimes division, plus the MCSO Homeland Security and Counter Terrorism investigations unit. The powdery substance was determined to be harmless. We will use all appropriate resources to track down the person or people responsible, said Blair. If you know anything about this incident, you can call Crime Stoppers at 352-368-7867. You can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward. Powder mailed Sheriffs Office takes action after envelope is opened Pedestrian injuredA man who stepped off the median on State Road 200 at Steeplechase was critically injured Jan. 28 when he was struck by a car. Stephen R. Cote was hospitalized. The driver, an 81-year-old woman, was not injured or charged. *See sales person for details. Pictures for illustration purposes only.

OBITUARY Blood donors neededLifeSouth Community Blood Centers is encouraged by the response of donors to the emergency need for blood, but supplies are still critically short for three specific blood types. Weve had tremendous support from the media in spreading the word about this blood shortage, said LifeSouth Vice President of Operations J.B. Bowles. Type-O is typically always in high demand, Bowles explained, because its considered the Universal Donor. O-positive is the most common blood type, about 37 percent of Americans have it, and O-positive red blood cells can be used by anyone with an Rh-positive blood type, which is about 85 percent of us. O-negative is more rare, he added, only about 7 percent of Americans have it, but in an emergency all of us can use O-negative red blood cells. For information about donating, donors can call LifeSouth toll-free at 888-795-2707 or go to www.lifesouth.org. 00075X7 Clip and Save Clip and Save Clip and Save Clip and Save Grandfather Clock 352-873-7587 GRANDFATHER CLOCK REPAIR Service and repairs 43 years full time experience Specializing in floor clocks.

Some time ago pig farmers never did well because most Americans prefer beef. They had been hopeful to see a business increase after the beef health scares, but the real benefits went to poultry and fish industries. Because of this, The National Pig Farmers Association embarked upon an intensive campaign to saturate magazines, television, and radio with ads urging people to eat pork patties. The campaign succeeded when Congress designated the second of February as the day when every family would be urged to eat pork sausage. That day would be celebrated nationally, of course, as Ground Hog Day. Thats my story and Im sticking to it. Tomorrow is the time to pig out on sausages. But there is another legend associated with Groundhog Day. It started in 1887 with German settlers. Their tradition holds that if the sun comes out on Feb. 2, the groundhog will see its shadow and six more weeks of winter will follow. If no shadow is seen, legend says spring will come early. Last year in their own Groundhog Day ceremony, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, tying in reports on global warming, announced that there would be six more weeks of winter followed by 1000 years of summer.Celebrate! There are a lot of reasons to celebrate Groundhog Day. Its on nearly every calendar. The forecast is no less reliable than the National Weather Service. Unlike the Easter bunny, the groundhog keeps his dirty paws outside. At least one of them critters is bound to see things your way. As they used to say on radio: The Shadow knows. Its fun to say Punxsutawney. If a rodent can bring us an early spring, more power to him. And, in Minnesota, either way they come out ahead. Back in the not too distant past both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address occurred on the same day. This was such an ironic juxtaposition of events that national news reported that one involved a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelligence for prognostication. The other involved a groundhog. Im sure I know when this happened; your opinion may differ from mine. Was it during the Bush or Obama years? Bits and pieces A prospector marched into an assayers office and planted two huge nuggets on the counter. Well, dont just stand there, assay something. The first scientists who studied fog were mistified. Incontinence Hotline. Can you hold, please? I picked up a hitchhiker. Youve got to when you hit them. A man told his doctor, Doc, help me. Im addicted to Twitter. The doctor replied, Sorry, I dont follow you. A groundhogs laundry is known as hogwash. While creating wives, God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the world. And then He made the earth round. We should go metric every inch of the way. No matter how bad the movie is at the drive-in theater, most patrons love every minute of it. Show me a stolen sausage and Ill show you a missing link. Bear with us Milwaukee Faye, the well-known womens pool champion, was participating in the annual North Woods Tournament and was tied for first place with Minnesota Fats. She was just about to shoot when a mounted bears head fell from above the fireplace. Faye became distracted, miscued, and ended up in second place. When the trophy was remounted above the fireplace, a sign was placed next to it reading: This is the bear that made Milwaukee Faye miss.Another holidayOver breakfast one morning, a woman said to her husband, Ill bet you dont know what day this is. Of course I do, he answered as if he were offended, and left for the office. Later, the doorbell rang and when the woman opened the door, she was handed a box of a dozen long stemmed red roses. At 1 p.m., a foil-wrapped, two-pound box of her favorite chocolates was delivered. The woman couldnt wait for her husband to come home. First the flowers and then the chocolates she exclaimed. Ive never had a more wonderful Groundhog Day.Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30 ~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds on the flyers posted on the Travel Board in the Lifestyle Center, or you may call 352-237-7152 for more information.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com D iscontent with Washington government is more epidemic than this years flu outbreak. Disgust with Congress is particularly infectious. We hear frequently that our government is broken. Thats not accurate. While Congress is in disarray, and the White House is brazen, government agencies havent run out of checks yet. Ever-growing federal bureaucracies are writing regulations at double speed, and spending trillions of dollars faster than the Treasury and the Federal Reserve can collect, borrow, and print money. Meanwhile, Congress and the White House are preoccupied with their political agendas. Everett McKinley Dirksen, former member of the House and Senator from Illinois was prolific and entertaining in his writings and comments about Washington politicians. Dirksen said the name of the game is get elected; get re-elected; and never get mad. Get even. The game hasnt changed since Mr. Dirksen passed on in 1969. Congress and the White House are stuck in a second adolescence, accompanied by temper tantrums and name calling. In such times President Lincoln often said: This too shall pass. But how? In its own words: An organization named No Labels is a growing citizens movement of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents dedicated to promoting a new politics of problem solving. No Labels began in December 2010. Its current leaders are former Republican Governor Jon Huntsman of Utah and Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia. No Labels has some attributes of a skunkworks, the name given to a technology research projects begun just for the sake of innovation. Skunkworks avoid bureaucracy and ignore critics. Members are willing to take on a challenge which requires working outside the usual rules in order to achieve unusual results. Self-serving Washington critics include interest groups, congressional leaders, and political party enforcers, whose primary interest is power, not progress. No Labels is more interested in new attitudes and solving problems. Previous reform groups similar to No Labels have usually faded into obscurity after short lives. No Labels says it now has dozens of members of Congress who are interested in solving problems and hundreds of thousands of citizen supporters. While it claims no agenda, No Labels has a number of practical proposals, some of which include levity worthy of former Senator Dirksen. Theyve suggested Congress should have its pay suspended until it passes a budget and Congress people should earn their pay with at least three five-day work-weeks every month in Washington, not at home. Other No Labels thoughts: Would the House and Senate be willing to coordinate their schedules in order to make progress? Would the President accede to being questioned by Congress once a month, like the British Prime Minister before Parliament? Would the Senate permit a bi-partisan majority to override refusal of a chairman to bring a bill to the floor for a vote? Our skunky suggestion would be immediate retirement of all four party leaders of the House and Senate. Sooner would be better. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, February 1, 2013 T oday marks the anniversary of a great American tragedy, one that doesnt get as much publicity as some others. But the memories linger for those of us who were part of the aftermath. Ten years ago I was working as an editor in New Smyrna Beach, putting out a small daily newspaper. I was living in Edgewater, about 10 miles south, and about 30 miles north of Cape Canaveral. This Feb. 1 was to be a big day, with the landing of the Space Shuttle Columbia. I was up watching a cable channel that those on the East Coast get, although around Ocala we dont. Its called the NASA channel, and it was much better to watch space activity on it than on the Orlando stations. There were no commentators, just the ground control communication to the astronauts. I had a press pass to go to the Cape that afternoon, to attend the press conference by the Columbia crew. There was no need to be there for the landing. I was only 45 minutes away and the conference wouldnt be for hours. Shortly before 9, a little while before the sonic boom would shake up the Space Coast, I kept hearing ground control say Houston, Columbia, meaning Houston was calling the astronauts. There was no response. Quickly, I sat up and took notice, keeping an eye on the clock. It was now well past re-entry time, and soon was past time for the sonic boom, and soon past time for the 9:16 scheduled landing. By now it was obvious that something was terribly wrong. I switched over to one of the networks, probably CNN, to see if they had joined the coverage, and they had, but they were way behind what all of us suspected. Then came the news that people had seen strange lights over California, and debris was falling in Texas. By then, it was undeniable. The astronauts were not coming home alive. Instead of going to Canaveral that afternoon, I went the next day when a memorial was set up and I quietly went through the line, asking for people from my circulation area. I found several, and they described their feelings and why they had made the short trip to the Cape, where admission was free on this day. By the following week, the headline on the news magazine said Not Again, something we all felt just 17 years after the Challenger disaster which, unlike Columbia, was viewed by many in Florida. I still remember the smiling pictures of the astronauts as they walked to the shuttle in what was their final walk on this earth. I cant imagine what those people went through in the moments between the breakup of the shuttle and their deaths. Were not sending that many people into space now, and frankly, I dont care if we ever do. Weve got too many problems to solve here on earth without worrying about things in outer space.

T he hotly contested sheriffs race is over. Chris Blair has been sworn in and is the top law enforcement official in Marion County. Those whose loyalties lie elsewhere need to accept that and move on. Last weeks incident where a white powder was sent to the Sheriffs Office didnt prove anything, except that the department reacted properly and quickly determined there was no threat. The people who sent the powder, whatever it was, disrupted the operations of an emergency agency for a short while, which only temporarily weakened the ability to respond to real threatening situations. Did the people who sent this really think the sheriff opens his own mail? Is there anyone out there who was an executive who opened his own mail? Arent there people assigned to that duty everywhere, including the Sheriffs Office? That means the initial fear was felt by an assistant, as the news release put it, not the sheriff himself. And what about the powder. The anthrax scare has been over for years. We havent been told what the powder was, but theres no reason to think it wasnt baby powder, talcum powder, flour, or even that once-popular cleanser people used in their sinks. We do hope that the sheriffs investigators will find out who sent the threat and prosecute the perpetrators to the fullest. In fact, since it was sent through the mail, maybe a stint in a tough federal prison would be warranted. Meanwhile, the voting machines and ballots have been put away. Who knows what kind of election well have in just under four years. For now, though, Blair is the sheriff. And for those who dont like it get over it. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Blairs the sheriff; get over it! Recalling Columbia after 10 years Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Add a new label to your computer favorites Where is the outrage?Am I the only person in the United States of America that is outraged by our president sending planes, tanks, arms and aid to Egypt? Does he really think he is going to be the global leader? We are arming the enemy all over the Middle East. The weapons that killed the latest Americans over there were from Libya and we pump billions of dollars into that country. What about us? We should cut all foreign aid until we get on economic ground again. And then give aid only to friendly countries. Has all this aid made these countries like us any better? It seems like we pay to arm them and disarm our own citizens. Once again Americans wake up; your country is being given away right under your own noses. This will be his legacy. Pat Lee Ocala Outdated amendment I have a question. When the Second Amendment to our Constitution was written and enacted, what was the status of, the about to become, Union? Well, let me see. We were fighting the British for our freedom from the King of England. Right? We were not fighting each other and wantonly killing our women, children, and each other. Right? The now antiquated Second Amendment was passed to allow the citizens of a new nation to bear arms against the British. In all the arguments regarding owning guns, we forget the time period in our history when the Second Amendment was included in the constitution. The constitution, at that time, was written for that time period, and yes, some are applicable to present day America, but not the Second Amendment. Now, to be fair to that period, and if we want that period of times benefits, we should go back to horse and buggy days, wash boards for laundry, candles and kerosene for lighting, bows and arrows for hunting, as well as the types of guns in those days, and open fires for cooking. No one would do that. But we will support something Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED thats now antiquated and was written for that time period. Now, weapons go back to the cave man. China produced the first black powder. We had guns, which we used to wipe out the native Americans while they used bows and arrows, the Colt 45, the Springfield rifle, and the old blunderbuss, and I dont mean those people in congress. If peole want guns, give them the old muzzle loaders and for a rifle, how about the Springfield 1903. PLEASESEELETTER PAGE9 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel bolder as each new success falls into place. But caution is still advised through the end of the week. Until then, a stepby-step approach is best. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That cooperation you request could come at too high a price. Since few can beat the Bovine at being clever and resourceful, why not see what you can do on your own? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Aspects favor a quieter time spent getting closer to the people who are especially important to you. Theres always much more to learn and appreciate about each other. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The concerned Crab will act to resolve workplace misunderstandings before they get out of hand and cause more serious problems. Co-workers rally to support your efforts. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) What the Big Cat might see as a disturbing act of disloyalty might just be a failure of communication on both sides. Take time for mediation rather than confrontation. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be more patient with those who seem unwilling to accept your version of whats right. The fact is, theres a lot more to learn on all sides of this issue. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) It should be easier to assess the facts youll need to make an important decision. But dont commit if you still have doubts. There could be more you need to know. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your excitement level remains high as you continue working on that new project. Expect some setbacks. But on the whole, all will move pretty much on schedule. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) It might be wise to be more prudent with expenses right now. But your financial situation should soon clear up, and you could be back shopping, happily as ever. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might prefer sticking with your current schedule. But some newly emerging information could persuade you to consider a change. Keep an open mind. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might want to reject a suggested change. But it could be wise to go with the flow, at least for a while. You can always return to your first plan if you like. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Youre bolstered by both the practical and poetic sides of your nature as you maneuver through some unsettled emotional situations. Things ease up by weeks end.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I want to ask the question! Does a gun cook, make bread, fry meat, change a diaper, sooth a childs sore throat, fix a tire, do the laundry, dust, vacuum, or any of the necessary things that need to be done in our daily life? No! Guns do one thing, and one thing only, for which they were designed to do, Kill! Yes, thats why they were developed, and thats why we still have them. Sure there are those who use them just for target practice. Thats fine. But if you can tell me or any other resonable red blooded American, if guns are good for anything, except killing, Id like to know it. There are those who say people kill people, guns dont kill people. If thats so, why didnt the deranged person who killed 20 beautiful children and six dedicated teachers, at Newtown, Connecticut, just use a potato masher, a fly swatter, or a basting brush? The reason, they dont kill people, guns kill people, and has anyone out there heard of anyone being killed with these items? Ill bet not. Over 900 hundred people, as of 1/16/13, have been killed with guns since the Newtown Massacre. On the average, in this country, 87 people are killed with guns each day, thats 31,755 people per year. More people than have been killed in the Iraq war and the 10 years Afghanistan war. Wow, its safer to be in Afghanistan than in the United States. Its a fact, we are the most violent nation in the world and own more guns than any other nation in the world. Oh well, what price freedom, with tongue in cheek. Finally, we have a president whos not afraid of the NRA, but the NRA and its supporters will try and ridicule him unmercifully, thats the American way. Well, I guess well have to wait and see if the president, saddled with a donothing Congress, but backed by logical citizens, will prevail, so we can feel safe in our homes again. Theres one thing for sure, if this article is published, there will be more dumb alibis and outcries to support gun ownership. Its called NRAisms. Oh well! Just think, if you hear a bang, bang, in your area, its not a car backfiring, its a gun. Oh yes, NRA really stands for Negate Responsible Americans. Bill Ford Ocala LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Batter up, breakfast lovers! IHOP one of Americas most popular familyfriendly restaurants, known for everything you love about breakfast, will once again invite guests to enjoy free pancakes during National Pancake Day on Feb. 5, while celebrating Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals 30th anniversary. On this day, the restaurant chain hopes to raise $3 million as the first national fundraising campaign to kick off the 2013 fundraising year for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals. During National Pancake Day, the companys largest philanthropic event of the year, more than 1,500 IHOP restaurants across the country will invite guests to enjoy a complimentary stack of IHOPs signature delicious buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Guests will be encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to the local Childrens Miracle Network Hospital or other local charities. One hundred percent of the donations will help local charities provide vital equipment, life-saving procedures and critical care for sick and injured children. This will mark the eighth year that IHOP has held National Pancake Day, which to date has raised more than $10 million dollars for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities. In 2012 alone, IHOP raised more than $3 million for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals and other charities. Millions of free pancakes served on National Pancake Day mean millions of miracles for those in need, said Julia Stewart, Interim President, IHOP and CEO of the parent company, DineEquity, Inc. The concept is simple, but our mission is ambitious; to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible through Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals. For the past eight years, it has been a pleasure and a privilege for all of us at IHOP to participate in this worthy event, and each year our guests have proved to be incredibly generous, helping us not only reach but surpass our goal. We look forward to continuing that trend this year as we plan to once again flip and serve about 4 million free pancakes for charity. Guests visiting participating IHOP restaurants in support of Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals will also have the option to purchase Miracle Balloons for $1 and $5 each, throughout the month of January leading into National Pancake Day, with all proceeds going to the Childrens Miracle Network Hospital. Participating restaurants will display the balloons in celebration of Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals 30-year anniversary. Those who buy a $5 Miracle Balloon will receive a $5 off discount that can be credited toward their next visit.

Free pancakes on Feb. 5 to benefit Childrens hospitals Up, up, and away: Open auditions for Ocala Civic Theatres production of Boeing-Boeing will be held on Monday, Feb. 4 and Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. Bernard, an American architect in Paris, has a girl in every port ... every airport, that is. Quite literally a man of the world, hes juggling three glamorous flight attendants at once: Gloria the American, Gabriella the Italian, and Gretchen the German. Unaware of each other, they each spend their layovers in the city of love at Bernards posh Parisian apartment. Adding to the international intrigue, hes engaged to all three! Although Bernard is meticulous in keeping the three fiances in the dark about each other, it is his housekeeper Berthe who really masterminds the deception, even though she heartily disapproves of Bernards amorous antics. When his old college chum Robert comes to visit, he too is swept into Bernards scheme. Then technology intervenes: The introduction of the newer and faster Boeing jet throws off Bernard's carefully orchestrated timetables, and all three women arrive at once. It takes the frantic combined efforts of Bernard, Robert, and Berthe to keep up the charade as this comedy takes flight into farce with international flair! Roles available are: Bernard (35-45) American architect living in Paris. The consummate smooth bachelor. Standard American accent. Robert (35-45) Friend of Bernards visiting from Wisconsin. Reserved and timid. Midwestern accent. Gloria (25-35) American TWA air hostess. Madly in love with Bernard. Very sexy, fancy-free, and bossy. New York accent. Gabriella (25-35) Italian Alitalia air hostess. Madly in love with Bernard. Very sexy, trusting, and nave. Heavy Italian accent. Gretchen (25-35) German Lufthansa air hostess. Madly in love with Bernard. Ocala Civic Theatre to hold auditions for Boeing-Boeing PLEASESEETHEATRE PAGE24 Very sexy, militant, and emotional. Heavy German accent. Berthe (45-60) Bernards disdainful French cook and housekeeper. An efficient complainer. Heavy French accent. Ages listed are approximate. The play requires all actors (except Berthe) to be comfortable engaging in a lot of displays of affection and passion. Set in the swinging s just as the sexual revolution takes off, this is a classic door-slamming bedroom farce in the tradition of Georges Feydeau's A Flea In Her Ear and Ken Ludwig's Lend Me A Tenor. Its a mod world of free love and fast-paced laughs in this retro romp through Paris in the springtime! Copies of the script are available at the theater and may be checked out with a $10 refundable deposit. Newcomers and veterans alike are welcome and encouraged to audition. Those auditioning will be asked to do cold readings from the script. The director would like to hear auditioners attempt the appropriate accent for the character(s) for which they are trying out. Rehearsals begin Monday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. and are generally held Monday through Friday from 7 to 10 p.m. at the theater. Please bring to auditions a list of potential conflicts. There will be 20 public performances of Boeing-Boeing from March 21 to April 14. For more information, call the box office at 352-2362274 or go to www.ocalacivictheatre.com.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com O ne thing about me that has not changed all these years is that I refuse to waste my time on anything not important. There is too much to do in this world to waste time on unimportant things. This, however, sometimes gets me in trouble with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Do not let this get back to her, but I sometimes refer to it as the GMP syndrome. She is standing up about something and I am sitting in my easy chair not knowing what shes talking about. My wifes idea of what is important sometimes does not jive with my sense of importance. The real problem is that I do not understand what she thinks is important and she, on the other hand, does not understand that I do not think it is important. On those rare occasions when our sense of what is important collides, we celebrate. That is what is important. She thinks she won, and I know I won. Does it really matter? Very few times in life do we both get what we want. When that happens she stands up and gloats, while I sit down and grin. I am not sure what the difference is between a gloat and a grin, but then, does it really matter? I must confess we are on a different wavelength at times. The only time our waves are synchronized is when I am driving out of the driveway and waving goodbye and her returning the gesture. Do not get me wrong, we have been a marvelous working team for more years than I can remember. Of course, that does not mean anything because I cannot remember yesterday. However, we have worked together most marvelously for many years and I look forward to many more years of such marital shenanigans. In spite of that, we have our differences. One of the great differences we have is in the definition of importance. It is a rare day in June when our definitions are united in holy macaroni and cheese. It does happen though and we both revel in those moments. It is wonderful when we can stand together on some project or some issue. Now that I think of it, I believe we stand together more often than I have given credit. The thing that makes our relationship so marvelous and wonderful is that we allow the other person to have their differences. She is a broccoli (yuck) kind of a person and I on the other hand am an Apple Fritter kind of person. It just goes to show there are certain things that a person should stand for and then there are things that really do not matter. Looking out at the world, I notice a few things I just cannot stand for. Some do not make any difference one way or the other, while others really make a difference. The problem is by the time we understand the significance of something we are too old to do anything about it. The Pennsylvania Dutch has a wonderful saying, We grow too soon old and too late smart. By the time we have grown enough to become smart about something that something is no longer in vogue. At my age, of course, I am learning that I cannot stand too long for anything. Out in the world of politics and religion, people are always coming up with solutions to nonexistent problems. It takes a good politician and religious person to spend a lot of time working on a solution of which there is no problem. Our world is full of problems, to be sure. It would be a rare day when people would get their heads together and work on problems. All we have today are solutions. The trouble is finding the right solution for the right problem. Only in politics and in religion can we spend all our time working on a solution that does not address any particular problem. As this stands today, I think I am just going to sit down and let it go by, because it will. My father taught me the most important thing in life was never to try to fix something that aint broken ... or aint broken too bad. It is amazing what a little duct tape can do to put off fixing something that is not broken too bad. Not every crack needs fixing. Silence is golden and noise can be expensive especially when somebody else is talking. I like surrounding myself with the wonderful sounds of silence. I do not even like talking to myself. I do not listen anyway so what is the use. Often in my life, I have regretted saying something, but never, to my knowledge, have I regretted keeping my mouth shut. Yes, I will stand up for some things, but many things I will just sit down and take it. No reason to get all riled up when what people are talking about is like a breeze on a summer afternoon. It comes for a moment and then it has gone, and where it goes, nobody knows. The apostle Paul knew what to stand for. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage (Galatians 5:1). If you do not stand for something good, you will fall for anything, usually bad. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

These facts would be enough to make most young men shy away from the lovely young girl but Dick was in love. He persevered and one day he played an event that surprised even him. It was a party for the brother of his lovely young girl friend. Once they were introduced, there was never another question about him becoming a part of the family. Dick and Antoinette have been married for 56 years and have seven children. Dick junior is retired from the Air Force and lives in the Philippines along with his brother Joseph who is retired from the Navy. Son Frank lives in Orlando; Louis lives in Ocala and two daughters; Rachael and Jeanette also live in town. Their youngest daughter Anna resides in Cincinnati, Ohio. Along with their seven children, they enjoy and love their 10 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Family is important to Dick and Antoinette and having three of their children close by makes holidays and family days even nicer. When you look at Dicks history of being on the road, you wonder how he had time or money for so large a family but he has never been without work and never been without a job. From early on he formed his band and adopted the stage name, Dick Richards. The Dick Richards Band has been delighting audiences ever since. He has been a band leader all of his life, and the master musician has played all over the eastern half of the United States; in Canada and Las Vegas. A consummate accordion player, he even sat in several shows with the famous Ink Spots when their piano player came down with food poisoning. Just a few of the gigs Dick has had include the Saint Moritz in Quebec; Plantation Inn; Port Paradise; Holiday Inns; Piccadilly Hotel in New York; Old Mill Lounge in New Jersey and the Westchester Golf and Country Club. There are hundreds more including a regular tour in the Borsht Belt in the Poconos; and the annual Accordion Convention at the Gold Coast Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. At the annual Accordion Convention, Dick is a major force in organization; scheduling; programming and classes. He is known and loved by all who attend these annual events and he even gets a chance to entertain and impress his fellow accordionists in concert. Just three and a half years ago, Nette and Dick moved into the Cherrywood community. It was not long before the ever energetic man was giving lessons and began the Accordion Club. Every month on the last Wednesday at 5:30 in the evening, the clubhouse fills with eager fans to listen to his students and contemporaries playing their hearts out. Music of all types and from all kinds of instruments can be heard as they play solos; duets; form trios or combine for a full band. Dick still plays for various organizations in Marion County; parties; special events and he even gave your humble reporter a demonstration of his talent. One of the two songs he played was Lady of Spain. His dexterity; ear; energy and ability came shining through has he moved with speed; strength and quick changes on keys and buttons which belies his nearly 80 years of age. I was mightily impressed. A music icon in not only Marion County; but Central Florida, Dick and his lovely wife are just one example of the exceptionally talented; dedicated and giving people that make this community special. Come out and enjoy the beautiful music created by Dick and his fellow musicians on Feb. 27. Youll be glad you did. From Your ReporterThis week I received an invitation to the Appleton Museum of Art to see the display of Appleton in Bloom. This world class event is reported to feature a vast array of floral designs and blooms that will stun the senses with their beauty; scents and color. Im looking forward to it and encourage our Garden Club members and my readers to check out the three day show at the Appleton from Feb. 1 through 3. The Appleton Museum of Art is located at 4333 E Silver Springs Blvd. in Ocala. You can call 352-2914456 for more information about this one of a kind show.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com (For my friend, Ed, whose love of sports is eclipsed only by his love of Judaism) P retzels, salsa, nachos and franks in a blanket. Beer, soda and pizza. East plays West. Its time for the Big Game, the XLVII Super Bowl, the football game of the year. And there were Jews who helped their respected teams on the way to victory. There was Josh Miller who grew up in East Brunswick, New Jersey, to a Conservative Jewish family. He played for the New England Patriots and was part of the winning team for the Super Bowl XXXIX. He reminisces that there is much pressure playing in such a game with so much at stake. He also feels great pride in being a Jewish athlete and he likes to feel that he is a role model for other Jewish athletes. He spent 12 years in the NFL also playing for the Steelers and the Titans. He anchors a drive-time sports talk show in Pittsburgh and speaks to kids groups about Jewish pride and Jewish sportsmanship. Miller joins a rather short list of Jewish players to be part of Super Bowl history. Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Randy the Rabbi Grossman won a Jewish-record four times in 1975, and Grossman grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia, Haverford, was given his nickname from defensive end Dwight White. It was a fitting name for a Jewish boy from Philly, Grossman recalls. Today Grossman works as a financial adviser for Wealth Management Strategies. The Rabbi went undrafted after a fine career at Temple University but the NFL considered him undersized for the big leagues. He stayed with the Steelers, overcoming the odds against him, riding the wave to victory when the Steelers captured the Super bowl title in 1974 in Grossmans rookie season. It was at that time that Grossman felt a pull to the Pittsburgh Jewish community. He felt it was good that the active Jewish community of that area had one of its own. In 1999, Grossman was inducted into the Philadelphia Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. Although he grew up Conservative, Grossman considers himself a Reform Jew. At his Bar Mitzvah, the rabbi was not sure he would show but he knew where to find the young man; in the back of the synagogue, playing football! Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Alan Sholomo Veingards life took an entirely different turn after his football days ended. He now tours the country talking about his transformation into an observant Jew, having embraced the Chabad-Lubavitch Hassidic movement. He notes that it is difficult being Shomer Shabbos, a Sabbath-observing Jew while being on a team. Friday night meetings and Saturday day games would be out but he feels that if you are a great player, exceptions could be made for you. Veingard still loves the game, but these days sports a yarmulke instead of a football helmet. Other Jews who were on the winning teams include San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman, Harris Barton (1989, ), 49ers tight end John Frank (1985, s89) Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Bobby Stein (1970) and Los Angels Raiders defensive end Lyle Alzado (1984). And while the list is short it is significant. And yes, please pass me a kosher hotdog with mustard.

This week is no exception as we proudly present a couple who have all three of those attributes. If I were to mention the name Richard Fucci to many of the residents of Cherrywood, very few would recognize it or know who I was talking about. On the other hand, if I were to say Dick Richards, everyone would know that hes the head of the Accordion Club. So this weeks featured person is Dick Richards; an extraordinary musician; a loving family man and a person who with his wife Antoinette has led a very interesting life. Richards story begins back in Brooklyn, New York where he was born, Richard Fucci. He was one of two children in the family and he grew up with his sister in a predominately Italian neighborhood. That heritage and neighborhood guided him into learning to play the accordion; an instrument that he picked up when he was only 9 years old. His father, a truck driver, was making his rounds when he spotted a sign in a music store that read, Accordions for Sale; 14 free lessons. Originally, Richards Dad bought the accordion for himself but soon lost interest. He turned the instrument and remaining lessons over to his son and the rest, as they say, is history. Dick was so gifted and talented that after finishing the free lessons, his teacher recommended him to another instructor; a concert accordionist. For the next 10 years Richard took lessons including the study of classical accordion at the New York School for Performing Arts. This culminated in a well received concert at Carnegie Hall (as an aside, Dick talks about two of his classmates; Dom DeLuise and Robert Redford). The accordion opened several doors for Richard along the way. When he was a young man of 10 and 11, he would be hired by neighbors for birthday parties; receptions and anniversary parties. He laughs when he talks about making five or ten bucks; I always had money in my pocket. These performances won him great popularity and helped pay for his continued studies. One day while he was sitting at famous Nathans Coney Island, he saw a young lady walking down the street with her girl friend. He was struck by the classic Lightning Bolt from the moment he laid eyes on her. Later he would find out her name was Antoinette. Hes been in love with her from that moment on. Nette as Dick affectionately calls her, was the 13th of 14 children. Her mother was very protective of the young lady and to make matters a tad worse, her father was a foreman on the docks of New York.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com T he Clubhouse at Cherrywood was sold out as 160 people, the largest crowd ever, took their seats with family and friends in anticipation of George Hamilton IV and Dave Atkins (hereafter referred to as Elvis). First on stage was George Hamilton who is originally from North Carolina and is a Senior Member of the Grand Old Opry. Since the 1950s he has been singing and entertaining audiences across the country and around the world. In his down home style, he took us through the history of his career and his interactions with some of the legends of country music. In one story he related that he had been married to his current wife; his high school sweetheart; for more than 50 years. A fellow performer at the Opry asked if he could really be a country star being married that long to the same woman. George brought back memories for many with his first hit song, A Rose and a Baby Ruth and subsequent hits like Behind the Barn and Abilene. At his encouragement, the crowd joined in the chorus of Abilene and I must say, we sounded pretty good. In his own homey style, he talked about sitting around the radio as a youngster and listening to the Opry knowing thats what he wanted to do; He spoke too of his family and of a George Hamilton the VI, his grandson, that is now on the scene. A mixture of song and testimony by George brought back recollections of the old Revival Camp meetings of years gone by. It was truly an American Country experience that entertained; lifted and gave hope. Elvis then came out and the whole scene changed. Within minutes, he was interacting with the audience; singing to the ladies (and a few of the guys) getting them to join in. He was particularly enthralled by 93-year-old Marie Brotherhood and 104-year-old Margaret Country and rock show becomes a sellout Cherrywood John Everlove Elvis with Marie Brotherhood.

Kender. The two ladies gave him a run for his money. Being the showman that he is, as he went through the crowd, serenading them and encouraging them to sing along, he draped a scarf around their necks just as Elvis used to do. Nearly every song that Elvis had ever sung, our Elvis sang also. Complete with gyrations; gestures and the world famous hip moves, the entertainment factor couldnt be beat. While he doesnt claim to be a comedian, he did tell the story of a man carrying a grandfathers clock in Nashville. Walking along, he fell and one of the stars of the Opry ran over to help him up. As the Opry star was helping the man to his feet he commented, Have you ever considered wearing a wrist watch? Elvis voice was excellent assisted by Dusty Rhodes, the sound technician. In addition, his vigor and positive attitude energized the audience putting smiles on everyones faces and bringing loud applause of approval. One of the nice things about Elvis is he doesnt take himself too seriously but he can sure put on a show. Thanks to Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management for the generous contribution to the nights entertainment and to the Activities Committee for their hard work with the food and decorating. Congrats to all that made this night a success. Newcomers Coffee HourOn Feb. 16 at 10 a.m. there will be a Welcome Coffee for all of our new residents here at Cherrywood.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com T he Clubhouse at Cherrywood was sold out as 160 people, the largest crowd ever, took their seats with family and friends in anticipation of George Hamilton IV and Dave Atkins (hereafter referred to as Elvis). First on stage was George Hamilton who is originally from North Carolina and is a Senior Member of the Grand Old Opry. Since the 1950s he has been singing and entertaining audiences across the country and around the world. In his down home style, he took us through the history of his career and his interactions with some of the legends of country music. In one story he related that he had been married to his current wife; his high school sweetheart; for more than 50 years. A fellow performer at the Opry asked if he could really be a country star being married that long to the same woman. George brought back memories for many with his first hit song, A Rose and a Baby Ruth and subsequent hits like Behind the Barn and Abilene. At his encouragement, the crowd joined in the chorus of Abilene and I must say, we sounded pretty good. In his own homey style, he talked about sitting around the radio as a youngster and listening to the Opry knowing thats what he wanted to do; He spoke too of his family and of a George Hamilton the VI, his grandson, that is now on the scene. A mixture of song and testimony by George brought back recollections of the old Revival Camp meetings of years gone by. It was truly an American Country experience that entertained; lifted and gave hope. Elvis then came out and the whole scene changed. Within minutes, he was interacting with the audience; singing to the ladies (and a few of the guys) getting them to join in. He was particularly enthralled by 93-year-old Marie Brotherhood and 104-year-old Margaret Country and rock show becomes a sellout Cherrywood John Everlove Elvis with Marie Brotherhood.

This week is no exception as we proudly present a couple who have all three of those attributes. If I were to mention the name Richard Fucci to many of the residents of Cherrywood, very few would recognize it or know who I was talking about. On the other hand, if I were to say Dick Richards, everyone would know that hes the head of the Accordion Club. So this weeks featured person is Dick Richards; an extraordinary musician; a loving family man and a person who with his wife Antoinette has led a very interesting life. Richards story begins back in Brooklyn, New York where he was born, Richard Fucci. He was one of two children in the family and he grew up with his sister in a predominately Italian neighborhood. That heritage and neighborhood guided him into learning to play the accordion; an instrument that he picked up when he was only 9 years old. His father, a truck driver, was making his rounds when he spotted a sign in a music store that read, Accordions for Sale; 14 free lessons. Originally, Richards Dad bought the accordion for himself but soon lost interest. He turned the instrument and remaining lessons over to his son and the rest, as they say, is history. Dick was so gifted and talented that after finishing the free lessons, his teacher recommended him to another instructor; a concert accordionist. For the next 10 years Richard took lessons including the study of classical accordion at the New York School for Performing Arts. This culminated in a well received concert at Carnegie Hall (as an aside, Dick talks about two of his classmates; Dom DeLuise and Robert Redford). The accordion opened several doors for Richard along the way. When he was a young man of 10 and 11, he would be hired by neighbors for birthday parties; receptions and anniversary parties. He laughs when he talks about making five or ten bucks; I always had money in my pocket. These performances won him great popularity and helped pay for his continued studies. One day while he was sitting at famous Nathans Coney Island, he saw a young lady walking down the street with her girl friend. He was struck by the classic Lightning Bolt from the moment he laid eyes on her. Later he would find out her name was Antoinette. Hes been in love with her from that moment on. Nette as Dick affectionately calls her, was the 13th of 14 children. Her mother was very protective of the young lady and to make matters a tad worse, her father was a foreman on the docks of New York.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com (For my friend, Ed, whose love of sports is eclipsed only by his love of Judaism) P retzels, salsa, nachos and franks in a blanket. Beer, soda and pizza. East plays West. Its time for the Big Game, the XLVII Super Bowl, the football game of the year. And there were Jews who helped their respected teams on the way to victory. There was Josh Miller who grew up in East Brunswick, New Jersey, to a Conservative Jewish family. He played for the New England Patriots and was part of the winning team for the Super Bowl XXXIX. He reminisces that there is much pressure playing in such a game with so much at stake. He also feels great pride in being a Jewish athlete and he likes to feel that he is a role model for other Jewish athletes. He spent 12 years in the NFL also playing for the Steelers and the Titans. He anchors a drive-time sports talk show in Pittsburgh and speaks to kids groups about Jewish pride and Jewish sportsmanship. Miller joins a rather short list of Jewish players to be part of Super Bowl history. Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Randy the Rabbi Grossman won a Jewish-record four times in 1975, and Grossman grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia, Haverford, was given his nickname from defensive end Dwight White. It was a fitting name for a Jewish boy from Philly, Grossman recalls. Today Grossman works as a financial adviser for Wealth Management Strategies. The Rabbi went undrafted after a fine career at Temple University but the NFL considered him undersized for the big leagues. He stayed with the Steelers, overcoming the odds against him, riding the wave to victory when the Steelers captured the Super bowl title in 1974 in Grossmans rookie season. It was at that time that Grossman felt a pull to the Pittsburgh Jewish community. He felt it was good that the active Jewish community of that area had one of its own. In 1999, Grossman was inducted into the Philadelphia Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. Although he grew up Conservative, Grossman considers himself a Reform Jew. At his Bar Mitzvah, the rabbi was not sure he would show but he knew where to find the young man; in the back of the synagogue, playing football! Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Alan Sholomo Veingards life took an entirely different turn after his football days ended. He now tours the country talking about his transformation into an observant Jew, having embraced the Chabad-Lubavitch Hassidic movement. He notes that it is difficult being Shomer Shabbos, a Sabbath-observing Jew while being on a team. Friday night meetings and Saturday day games would be out but he feels that if you are a great player, exceptions could be made for you. Veingard still loves the game, but these days sports a yarmulke instead of a football helmet. Other Jews who were on the winning teams include San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman, Harris Barton (1989, ), 49ers tight end John Frank (1985, s89) Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Bobby Stein (1970) and Los Angels Raiders defensive end Lyle Alzado (1984). And while the list is short it is significant. And yes, please pass me a kosher hotdog with mustard.

These facts would be enough to make most young men shy away from the lovely young girl but Dick was in love. He persevered and one day he played an event that surprised even him. It was a party for the brother of his lovely young girl friend. Once they were introduced, there was never another question about him becoming a part of the family. Dick and Antoinette have been married for 56 years and have seven children. Dick junior is retired from the Air Force and lives in the Philippines along with his brother Joseph who is retired from the Navy. Son Frank lives in Orlando; Louis lives in Ocala and two daughters; Rachael and Jeanette also live in town. Their youngest daughter Anna resides in Cincinnati, Ohio. Along with their seven children, they enjoy and love their 10 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Family is important to Dick and Antoinette and having three of their children close by makes holidays and family days even nicer. When you look at Dicks history of being on the road, you wonder how he had time or money for so large a family but he has never been without work and never been without a job. From early on he formed his band and adopted the stage name, Dick Richards. The Dick Richards Band has been delighting audiences ever since. He has been a band leader all of his life, and the master musician has played all over the eastern half of the United States; in Canada and Las Vegas. A consummate accordion player, he even sat in several shows with the famous Ink Spots when their piano player came down with food poisoning. Just a few of the gigs Dick has had include the Saint Moritz in Quebec; Plantation Inn; Port Paradise; Holiday Inns; Piccadilly Hotel in New York; Old Mill Lounge in New Jersey and the Westchester Golf and Country Club. There are hundreds more including a regular tour in the Borsht Belt in the Poconos; and the annual Accordion Convention at the Gold Coast Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. At the annual Accordion Convention, Dick is a major force in organization; scheduling; programming and classes. He is known and loved by all who attend these annual events and he even gets a chance to entertain and impress his fellow accordionists in concert. Just three and a half years ago, Nette and Dick moved into the Cherrywood community. It was not long before the ever energetic man was giving lessons and began the Accordion Club. Every month on the last Wednesday at 5:30 in the evening, the clubhouse fills with eager fans to listen to his students and contemporaries playing their hearts out. Music of all types and from all kinds of instruments can be heard as they play solos; duets; form trios or combine for a full band. Dick still plays for various organizations in Marion County; parties; special events and he even gave your humble reporter a demonstration of his talent. One of the two songs he played was Lady of Spain. His dexterity; ear; energy and ability came shining through has he moved with speed; strength and quick changes on keys and buttons which belies his nearly 80 years of age. I was mightily impressed. A music icon in not only Marion County; but Central Florida, Dick and his lovely wife are just one example of the exceptionally talented; dedicated and giving people that make this community special. Come out and enjoy the beautiful music created by Dick and his fellow musicians on Feb. 27. Youll be glad you did. From Your ReporterThis week I received an invitation to the Appleton Museum of Art to see the display of Appleton in Bloom. This world class event is reported to feature a vast array of floral designs and blooms that will stun the senses with their beauty; scents and color. Im looking forward to it and encourage our Garden Club members and my readers to check out the three day show at the Appleton from Feb. 1 through 3.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com O ne thing about me that has not changed all these years is that I refuse to waste my time on anything not important. There is too much to do in this world to waste time on unimportant things. This, however, sometimes gets me in trouble with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Do not let this get back to her, but I sometimes refer to it as the GMP syndrome. She is standing up about something and I am sitting in my easy chair not knowing what shes talking about. My wifes idea of what is important sometimes does not jive with my sense of importance. The real problem is that I do not understand what she thinks is important and she, on the other hand, does not understand that I do not think it is important. On those rare occasions when our sense of what is important collides, we celebrate. That is what is important. She thinks she won, and I know I won. Does it really matter? Very few times in life do we both get what we want. When that happens she stands up and gloats, while I sit down and grin. I am not sure what the difference is between a gloat and a grin, but then, does it really matter? I must confess we are on a different wavelength at times. The only time our waves are synchronized is when I am driving out of the driveway and waving goodbye and her returning the gesture. Do not get me wrong, we have been a marvelous working team for more years than I can remember. Of course, that does not mean anything because I cannot remember yesterday. However, we have worked together most marvelously for many years and I look forward to many more years of such marital shenanigans. In spite of that, we have our differences. One of the great differences we have is in the definition of importance. It is a rare day in June when our definitions are united in holy macaroni and cheese. It does happen though and we both revel in those moments. It is wonderful when we can stand together on some project or some issue. Now that I think of it, I believe we stand together more often than I have given credit. The thing that makes our relationship so marvelous and wonderful is that we allow the other person to have their differences. She is a broccoli (yuck) kind of a person and I on the other hand am an Apple Fritter kind of person. It just goes to show there are certain things that a person should stand for and then there are things that really do not matter. Looking out at the world, I notice a few things I just cannot stand for. Some do not make any difference one way or the other, while others really make a difference. The problem is by the time we understand the significance of something we are too old to do anything about it. The Pennsylvania Dutch has a wonderful saying, We grow too soon old and too late smart. By the time we have grown enough to become smart about something that something is no longer in vogue. At my age, of course, I am learning that I cannot stand too long for anything. Out in the world of politics and religion, people are always coming up with solutions to nonexistent problems. It takes a good politician and religious person to spend a lot of time working on a solution of which there is no problem. Our world is full of problems, to be sure. It would be a rare day when people would get their heads together and work on problems. All we have today are solutions. The trouble is finding the right solution for the right problem. Only in politics and in religion can we spend all our time working on a solution that does not address any particular problem. As this stands today, I think I am just going to sit down and let it go by, because it will. My father taught me the most important thing in life was never to try to fix something that aint broken ... or aint broken too bad. It is amazing what a little duct tape can do to put off fixing something that is not broken too bad. Not every crack needs fixing. Silence is golden and noise can be expensive especially when somebody else is talking. I like surrounding myself with the wonderful sounds of silence. I do not even like talking to myself. I do not listen anyway so what is the use. Often in my life, I have regretted saying something, but never, to my knowledge, have I regretted keeping my mouth shut. Yes, I will stand up for some things, but many things I will just sit down and take it. No reason to get all riled up when what people are talking about is like a breeze on a summer afternoon. It comes for a moment and then it has gone, and where it goes, nobody knows. The apostle Paul knew what to stand for. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage (Galatians 5:1). If you do not stand for something good, you will fall for anything, usually bad. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I want to ask the question! Does a gun cook, make bread, fry meat, change a diaper, sooth a childs sore throat, fix a tire, do the laundry, dust, vacuum, or any of the necessary things that need to be done in our daily life? No! Guns do one thing, and one thing only, for which they were designed to do, Kill! Yes, thats why they were developed, and thats why we still have them. Sure there are those who use them just for target practice. Thats fine. But if you can tell me or any other resonable red blooded American, if guns are good for anything, except killing, Id like to know it. There are those who say people kill people, guns dont kill people. If thats so, why didnt the deranged person who killed 20 beautiful children and six dedicated teachers, at Newtown, Connecticut, just use a potato masher, a fly swatter, or a basting brush? The reason, they dont kill people, guns kill people, and has anyone out there heard of anyone being killed with these items? Ill bet not. Over 900 hundred people, as of 1/16/13, have been killed with guns since the Newtown Massacre. On the average, in this country, 87 people are killed with guns each day, thats 31,755 people per year. More people than have been killed in the Iraq war and the 10 years Afghanistan war. Wow, its safer to be in Afghanistan than in the United States. Its a fact, we are the most violent nation in the world and own more guns than any other nation in the world. Oh well, what price freedom, with tongue in cheek. Finally, we have a president whos not afraid of the NRA, but the NRA and its supporters will try and ridicule him unmercifully, thats the American way. Well, I guess well have to wait and see if the president, saddled with a donothing Congress, but backed by logical citizens, will prevail, so we can feel safe in our homes again. Theres one thing for sure, if this article is published, there will be more dumb alibis and outcries to support gun ownership. Its called NRAisms. Oh well! Just think, if you hear a bang, bang, in your area, its not a car backfiring, its a gun. Oh yes, NRA really stands for Negate Responsible Americans. Bill Ford Ocala LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Batter up, breakfast lovers! IHOP one of Americas most popular familyfriendly restaurants, known for everything you love about breakfast, will once again invite guests to enjoy free pancakes during National Pancake Day on Feb. 5, while celebrating Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals 30th anniversary. On this day, the restaurant chain hopes to raise $3 million as the first national fundraising campaign to kick off the 2013 fundraising year for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals. During National Pancake Day, the companys largest philanthropic event of the year, more than 1,500 IHOP restaurants across the country will invite guests to enjoy a complimentary stack of IHOPs signature delicious buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Guests will be encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to the local Childrens Miracle Network Hospital or other local charities. One hundred percent of the donations will help local charities provide vital equipment, life-saving procedures and critical care for sick and injured children. This will mark the eighth year that IHOP has held National Pancake Day, which to date has raised more than $10 million dollars for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities. In 2012 alone, IHOP raised more than $3 million for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals and other charities. Millions of free pancakes served on National Pancake Day mean millions of miracles for those in need, said Julia Stewart, Interim President, IHOP and CEO of the parent company, DineEquity, Inc. The concept is simple, but our mission is ambitious; to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible through Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals. For the past eight years, it has been a pleasure and a privilege for all of us at IHOP to participate in this worthy event, and each year our guests have proved to be incredibly generous, helping us not only reach but surpass our goal. We look forward to continuing that trend this year as we plan to once again flip and serve about 4 million free pancakes for charity. Guests visiting participating IHOP restaurants in support of Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals will also have the option to purchase Miracle Balloons for $1 and $5 each, throughout the month of January leading into National Pancake Day, with all proceeds going to the Childrens Miracle Network Hospital. Participating restaurants will display the balloons in celebration of Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals 30-year anniversary. Those who buy a $5 Miracle Balloon will receive a $5 off discount that can be credited toward their next visit.

Free pancakes on Feb. 5 to benefit Childrens hospitals Up, up, and away: Open auditions for Ocala Civic Theatres production of Boeing-Boeing will be held on Monday, Feb. 4 and Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. Bernard, an American architect in Paris, has a girl in every port ... every airport, that is. Quite literally a man of the world, hes juggling three glamorous flight attendants at once: Gloria the American, Gabriella the Italian, and Gretchen the German. Unaware of each other, they each spend their layovers in the city of love at Bernards posh Parisian apartment. Adding to the international intrigue, hes engaged to all three! Although Bernard is meticulous in keeping the three fiances in the dark about each other, it is his housekeeper Berthe who really masterminds the deception, even though she heartily disapproves of Bernards amorous antics. When his old college chum Robert comes to visit, he too is swept into Bernards scheme. Then technology intervenes: The introduction of the newer and faster Boeing jet throws off Bernard's carefully orchestrated timetables, and all three women arrive at once. It takes the frantic combined efforts of Bernard, Robert, and Berthe to keep up the charade as this comedy takes flight into farce with international flair! Roles available are: Bernard (35-45) American architect living in Paris. The consummate smooth bachelor. Standard American accent. Robert (35-45) Friend of Bernards visiting from Wisconsin. Reserved and timid. Midwestern accent. Gloria (25-35) American TWA air hostess. Madly in love with Bernard. Very sexy, fancy-free, and bossy. New York accent. Gabriella (25-35) Italian Alitalia air hostess. Madly in love with Bernard. Very sexy, trusting, and nave. Heavy Italian accent. Gretchen (25-35) German Lufthansa air hostess. Madly in love with Bernard. Ocala Civic Theatre to hold auditions for Boeing-Boeing PLEASESEETHEATRE PAGE24 Very sexy, militant, and emotional. Heavy German accent. Berthe (45-60) Bernards disdainful French cook and housekeeper. An efficient complainer. Heavy French accent. Ages listed are approximate. The play requires all actors (except Berthe) to be comfortable engaging in a lot of displays of affection and passion. Set in the swinging s just as the sexual revolution takes off, this is a classic door-slamming bedroom farce in the tradition of Georges Feydeau's A Flea In Her Ear and Ken Ludwig's Lend Me A Tenor. Its a mod world of free love and fast-paced laughs in this retro romp through Paris in the springtime! Copies of the script are available at the theater and may be checked out with a $10 refundable deposit. Newcomers and veterans alike are welcome and encouraged to audition. Those auditioning will be asked to do cold readings from the script. The director would like to hear auditioners attempt the appropriate accent for the character(s) for which they are trying out. Rehearsals begin Monday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. and are generally held Monday through Friday from 7 to 10 p.m. at the theater. Please bring to auditions a list of potential conflicts. There will be 20 public performances of Boeing-Boeing from March 21 to April 14. For more information, call the box office at 352-2362274 or go to www.ocalacivictheatre.com.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com D iscontent with Washington government is more epidemic than this years flu outbreak. Disgust with Congress is particularly infectious. We hear frequently that our government is broken. Thats not accurate. While Congress is in disarray, and the White House is brazen, government agencies havent run out of checks yet. Ever-growing federal bureaucracies are writing regulations at double speed, and spending trillions of dollars faster than the Treasury and the Federal Reserve can collect, borrow, and print money. Meanwhile, Congress and the White House are preoccupied with their political agendas. Everett McKinley Dirksen, former member of the House and Senator from Illinois was prolific and entertaining in his writings and comments about Washington politicians. Dirksen said the name of the game is get elected; get re-elected; and never get mad. Get even. The game hasnt changed since Mr. Dirksen passed on in 1969. Congress and the White House are stuck in a second adolescence, accompanied by temper tantrums and name calling. In such times President Lincoln often said: This too shall pass. But how? In its own words: An organization named No Labels is a growing citizens movement of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents dedicated to promoting a new politics of problem solving. No Labels began in December 2010. Its current leaders are former Republican Governor Jon Huntsman of Utah and Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia. No Labels has some attributes of a skunkworks, the name given to a technology research projects begun just for the sake of innovation. Skunkworks avoid bureaucracy and ignore critics. Members are willing to take on a challenge which requires working outside the usual rules in order to achieve unusual results. Self-serving Washington critics include interest groups, congressional leaders, and political party enforcers, whose primary interest is power, not progress. No Labels is more interested in new attitudes and solving problems. Previous reform groups similar to No Labels have usually faded into obscurity after short lives. No Labels says it now has dozens of members of Congress who are interested in solving problems and hundreds of thousands of citizen supporters. While it claims no agenda, No Labels has a number of practical proposals, some of which include levity worthy of former Senator Dirksen. Theyve suggested Congress should have its pay suspended until it passes a budget and Congress people should earn their pay with at least three five-day work-weeks every month in Washington, not at home. Other No Labels thoughts: Would the House and Senate be willing to coordinate their schedules in order to make progress? Would the President accede to being questioned by Congress once a month, like the British Prime Minister before Parliament? Would the Senate permit a bi-partisan majority to override refusal of a chairman to bring a bill to the floor for a vote? Our skunky suggestion would be immediate retirement of all four party leaders of the House and Senate. Sooner would be better. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, February 1, 2013 T oday marks the anniversary of a great American tragedy, one that doesnt get as much publicity as some others. But the memories linger for those of us who were part of the aftermath. Ten years ago I was working as an editor in New Smyrna Beach, putting out a small daily newspaper. I was living in Edgewater, about 10 miles south, and about 30 miles north of Cape Canaveral. This Feb. 1 was to be a big day, with the landing of the Space Shuttle Columbia. I was up watching a cable channel that those on the East Coast get, although around Ocala we dont. Its called the NASA channel, and it was much better to watch space activity on it than on the Orlando stations. There were no commentators, just the ground control communication to the astronauts. I had a press pass to go to the Cape that afternoon, to attend the press conference by the Columbia crew. There was no need to be there for the landing. I was only 45 minutes away and the conference wouldnt be for hours. Shortly before 9, a little while before the sonic boom would shake up the Space Coast, I kept hearing ground control say Houston, Columbia, meaning Houston was calling the astronauts. There was no response. Quickly, I sat up and took notice, keeping an eye on the clock. It was now well past re-entry time, and soon was past time for the sonic boom, and soon past time for the 9:16 scheduled landing. By now it was obvious that something was terribly wrong. I switched over to one of the networks, probably CNN, to see if they had joined the coverage, and they had, but they were way behind what all of us suspected. Then came the news that people had seen strange lights over California, and debris was falling in Texas. By then, it was undeniable. The astronauts were not coming home alive. Instead of going to Canaveral that afternoon, I went the next day when a memorial was set up and I quietly went through the line, asking for people from my circulation area. I found several, and they described their feelings and why they had made the short trip to the Cape, where admission was free on this day. By the following week, the headline on the news magazine said Not Again, something we all felt just 17 years after the Challenger disaster which, unlike Columbia, was viewed by many in Florida. I still remember the smiling pictures of the astronauts as they walked to the shuttle in what was their final walk on this earth. I cant imagine what those people went through in the moments between the breakup of the shuttle and their deaths. Were not sending that many people into space now, and frankly, I dont care if we ever do. Weve got too many problems to solve here on earth without worrying about things in outer space.

T he hotly contested sheriffs race is over. Chris Blair has been sworn in and is the top law enforcement official in Marion County. Those whose loyalties lie elsewhere need to accept that and move on. Last weeks incident where a white powder was sent to the Sheriffs Office didnt prove anything, except that the department reacted properly and quickly determined there was no threat. The people who sent the powder, whatever it was, disrupted the operations of an emergency agency for a short while, which only temporarily weakened the ability to respond to real threatening situations. Did the people who sent this really think the sheriff opens his own mail? Is there anyone out there who was an executive who opened his own mail? Arent there people assigned to that duty everywhere, including the Sheriffs Office? That means the initial fear was felt by an assistant, as the news release put it, not the sheriff himself. And what about the powder. The anthrax scare has been over for years. We havent been told what the powder was, but theres no reason to think it wasnt baby powder, talcum powder, flour, or even that once-popular cleanser people used in their sinks. We do hope that the sheriffs investigators will find out who sent the threat and prosecute the perpetrators to the fullest. In fact, since it was sent through the mail, maybe a stint in a tough federal prison would be warranted. Meanwhile, the voting machines and ballots have been put away. Who knows what kind of election well have in just under four years. For now, though, Blair is the sheriff. And for those who dont like it get over it. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Blairs the sheriff; get over it! Recalling Columbia after 10 years Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Add a new label to your computer favorites Where is the outrage?Am I the only person in the United States of America that is outraged by our president sending planes, tanks, arms and aid to Egypt? Does he really think he is going to be the global leader? We are arming the enemy all over the Middle East. The weapons that killed the latest Americans over there were from Libya and we pump billions of dollars into that country. What about us? We should cut all foreign aid until we get on economic ground again. And then give aid only to friendly countries. Has all this aid made these countries like us any better? It seems like we pay to arm them and disarm our own citizens. Once again Americans wake up; your country is being given away right under your own noses. This will be his legacy. Pat Lee Ocala Outdated amendment I have a question. When the Second Amendment to our Constitution was written and enacted, what was the status of, the about to become, Union? Well, let me see. We were fighting the British for our freedom from the King of England. Right? We were not fighting each other and wantonly killing our women, children, and each other. Right? The now antiquated Second Amendment was passed to allow the citizens of a new nation to bear arms against the British. In all the arguments regarding owning guns, we forget the time period in our history when the Second Amendment was included in the constitution. The constitution, at that time, was written for that time period, and yes, some are applicable to present day America, but not the Second Amendment. Now, to be fair to that period, and if we want that period of times benefits, we should go back to horse and buggy days, wash boards for laundry, candles and kerosene for lighting, bows and arrows for hunting, as well as the types of guns in those days, and open fires for cooking. No one would do that. But we will support something Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED thats now antiquated and was written for that time period. Now, weapons go back to the cave man. China produced the first black powder. We had guns, which we used to wipe out the native Americans while they used bows and arrows, the Colt 45, the Springfield rifle, and the old blunderbuss, and I dont mean those people in congress. If peole want guns, give them the old muzzle loaders and for a rifle, how about the Springfield 1903. PLEASESEELETTER PAGE9 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel bolder as each new success falls into place. But caution is still advised through the end of the week. Until then, a stepby-step approach is best. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That cooperation you request could come at too high a price. Since few can beat the Bovine at being clever and resourceful, why not see what you can do on your own? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Aspects favor a quieter time spent getting closer to the people who are especially important to you. Theres always much more to learn and appreciate about each other. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The concerned Crab will act to resolve workplace misunderstandings before they get out of hand and cause more serious problems. Co-workers rally to support your efforts. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) What the Big Cat might see as a disturbing act of disloyalty might just be a failure of communication on both sides. Take time for mediation rather than confrontation. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be more patient with those who seem unwilling to accept your version of whats right. The fact is, theres a lot more to learn on all sides of this issue. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) It should be easier to assess the facts youll need to make an important decision. But dont commit if you still have doubts. There could be more you need to know. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your excitement level remains high as you continue working on that new project. Expect some setbacks. But on the whole, all will move pretty much on schedule. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) It might be wise to be more prudent with expenses right now. But your financial situation should soon clear up, and you could be back shopping, happily as ever. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might prefer sticking with your current schedule. But some newly emerging information could persuade you to consider a change. Keep an open mind. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might want to reject a suggested change. But it could be wise to go with the flow, at least for a while. You can always return to your first plan if you like. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Youre bolstered by both the practical and poetic sides of your nature as you maneuver through some unsettled emotional situations. Things ease up by weeks end. BORN THIS WEEK: People reach out to your generosity and wisdom, and consider you a trusted and treasured friend.

Some time ago pig farmers never did well because most Americans prefer beef. They had been hopeful to see a business increase after the beef health scares, but the real benefits went to poultry and fish industries. Because of this, The National Pig Farmers Association embarked upon an intensive campaign to saturate magazines, television, and radio with ads urging people to eat pork patties. The campaign succeeded when Congress designated the second of February as the day when every family would be urged to eat pork sausage. That day would be celebrated nationally, of course, as Ground Hog Day. Thats my story and Im sticking to it. Tomorrow is the time to pig out on sausages. But there is another legend associated with Groundhog Day. It started in 1887 with German settlers. Their tradition holds that if the sun comes out on Feb. 2, the groundhog will see its shadow and six more weeks of winter will follow. If no shadow is seen, legend says spring will come early. Last year in their own Groundhog Day ceremony, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, tying in reports on global warming, announced that there would be six more weeks of winter followed by 1000 years of summer.Celebrate! There are a lot of reasons to celebrate Groundhog Day. Its on nearly every calendar. The forecast is no less reliable than the National Weather Service. Unlike the Easter bunny, the groundhog keeps his dirty paws outside. At least one of them critters is bound to see things your way. As they used to say on radio: The Shadow knows. Its fun to say Punxsutawney. If a rodent can bring us an early spring, more power to him. And, in Minnesota, either way they come out ahead. Back in the not too distant past both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address occurred on the same day. This was such an ironic juxtaposition of events that national news reported that one involved a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelligence for prognostication. The other involved a groundhog. Im sure I know when this happened; your opinion may differ from mine. Was it during the Bush or Obama years? Bits and pieces A prospector marched into an assayers office and planted two huge nuggets on the counter. Well, dont just stand there, assay something. The first scientists who studied fog were mistified. Incontinence Hotline. Can you hold, please? I picked up a hitchhiker. Youve got to when you hit them. A man told his doctor, Doc, help me. Im addicted to Twitter. The doctor replied, Sorry, I dont follow you. A groundhogs laundry is known as hogwash. While creating wives, God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the world. And then He made the earth round. We should go metric every inch of the way. No matter how bad the movie is at the drive-in theater, most patrons love every minute of it. Show me a stolen sausage and Ill show you a missing link. Bear with us Milwaukee Faye, the well-known womens pool champion, was participating in the annual North Woods Tournament and was tied for first place with Minnesota Fats. She was just about to shoot when a mounted bears head fell from above the fireplace. Faye became distracted, miscued, and ended up in second place. When the trophy was remounted above the fireplace, a sign was placed next to it reading: This is the bear that made Milwaukee Faye miss.Another holidayOver breakfast one morning, a woman said to her husband, Ill bet you dont know what day this is. Of course I do, he answered as if he were offended, and left for the office. Later, the doorbell rang and when the woman opened the door, she was handed a box of a dozen long stemmed red roses. At 1 p.m., a foil-wrapped, two-pound box of her favorite chocolates was delivered. The woman couldnt wait for her husband to come home. First the flowers and then the chocolates she exclaimed. Ive never had a more wonderful Groundhog Day.Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30 ~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds on the flyers posted on the Travel Board in the Lifestyle Center, or you may call 352-237-7152 for more information.

OBITUARY Blood donors neededLifeSouth Community Blood Centers is encouraged by the response of donors to the emergency need for blood, but supplies are still critically short for three specific blood types. Weve had tremendous support from the media in spreading the word about this blood shortage, said LifeSouth Vice President of Operations J.B. Bowles. Type-O is typically always in high demand, Bowles explained, because its considered the Universal Donor. O-positive is the most common blood type, about 37 percent of Americans have it, and O-positive red blood cells can be used by anyone with an Rh-positive blood type, which is about 85 percent of us. O-negative is more rare, he added, only about 7 percent of Americans have it, but in an emergency all of us can use O-negative red blood cells. For information about donating, donors can call LifeSouth toll-free at 888-795-2707 or go to www.lifesouth.org. 00075X7 Clip and Save Clip and Save Clip and Save Clip and Save Grandfather Clock 352-873-7587 GRANDFATHER CLOCK REPAIR Service and repairs 43 years full time experience Specializing in floor clocks.

Nearly every way requires money. The principal fund raiser is the Red Kettle Campaign. A familiar sight this past holiday season at the Canopy Oak Publix, at each door, was the Bell Ringers. Ocala West UMC was the sponsor, but the participants came from all corners of the SR200 Corridor: Ocala West UMC congregational members, Spruce Creek Preserve Midway Club, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of all ages with their leaders as well as many other good hearted people. The Salvation Army had 20 Red Kettle locations and a good natured completion develops for the four fund raising trophies they award at the end of the campaign. This year Ocalas Salvation Armys Red Kettle Campaign raised $243,882.25. The fourth place winner went to Joe Weldon and the First Baptist Church of Ocala who collected $12,153.73. Third place was Ocala Kiwanis at $14,531.24 with second place team of Silver Springs Rotary raising $16,908.64. Due to the generosity of the good folks who shopped at Canopy Oak Publix, for the second straight year Ocala West UMC and its dedicated Bell Ringers received the first place trophy with a total collected of $18,898.22. Local churchs bell-ringers win competition Some practice, and some real work Ocala firefighters put in some practice last week in dousing aircraft fires at the Ocala International Airport, as seen in the two photos below. The training props included manikins to simulate passenger rescue and a mockup of an airplane. But also, firefighters got to battle a real blaze on Jan. 24 at 11:02 a.m. at the Paddock Park Apartments, 2901 S.W. 41st St., in building 2000. Smoke could initially be seen from several miles away, and upon arrival, firefighters observed flames coming through the roof of the two-story wood structure. The occupied building contained 16 aparments, and firefighters were quickly able to search the building to ensure everyone had safely evacuated. Fire and smoke damage was contained to just four of those apartments, and firefighters remained on scene for more than five hours, said Battalion Chief Wally Brinkman. The cause is under investigation. PHOTO BY JIM CLARKWMBA officersThe West Marion Business Associations new officers are shown at Tuesdays general meeting of the group. From the left are Michel Northsea, marketing; Conrad Melancon, vice president, Jim Martin, president and Erica Jones, secretary. Not available when photo was taken were Heather Cabrera, treasurer, and Vernetta Sealy, membership chair. A suspicious package with a powdery substance was delivered and opened at the Marion County Sheriffs Office at 8:50 a.m., Friday, Jan. 25, inside Sheriff ChrisBlairs office, 692 N.W. 30th Ave., Ocala. The assistant, who opened the letter, immediately called for help and emergency protocols were activated. The letter contained a direct threat to Blair. The assistant was not injured. Fire rescue professionals from both the Marion County Fire Rescue and the Ocala Fire Rescue took over the scene to contain the suspicious powder and package. This is serious, Blair said. The emotional stress on our employees will not be tolerated. Disrupting MCSO business will not be tolerated. And the emergency resources that were used could have been elsewhere protecting the community, Blair said. Along with fire agencies, the incident involved the Marion County Sheriffs Office Bomb Squad, MCSO Major Crimes division, plus the MCSO Homeland Security and Counter Terrorism investigations unit. The powdery substance was determined to be harmless. We will use all appropriate resources to track down the person or people responsible, said Blair. If you know anything about this incident, you can call Crime Stoppers at 352-368-7867. You can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward. Powder mailed Sheriffs Office takes action after envelope is opened Pedestrian injuredA man who stepped off the median on State Road 200 at Steeplechase was critically injured Jan. 28 when he was struck by a car. Stephen R. Cote was hospitalized. The driver, an 81-year-old woman, was not injured or charged. *See sales person for details. Pictures for illustration purposes only.

OBITUARY Blood donors neededLifeSouth Community Blood Centers is encouraged by the response of donors to the emergency need for blood, but supplies are still critically short for three specific blood types. Weve had tremendous support from the media in spreading the word about this blood shortage, said LifeSouth Vice President of Operations J.B. Bowles. Type-O is typically always in high demand, Bowles explained, because its considered the Universal Donor. O-positive is the most common blood type, about 37 percent of Americans have it, and O-positive red blood cells can be used by anyone with an Rh-positive blood type, which is about 85 percent of us. O-negative is more rare, he added, only about 7 percent of Americans have it, but in an emergency all of us can use O-negative red blood cells. For information about donating, donors can call LifeSouth toll-free at 888-795-2707 or go to www.lifesouth.org. 00075X7 Clip and Save Clip and Save Clip and Save Clip and Save Grandfather Clock 352-873-7587 GRANDFATHER CLOCK REPAIR Service and repairs 43 years full time experience Specializing in floor clocks.

Some time ago pig farmers never did well because most Americans prefer beef. They had been hopeful to see a business increase after the beef health scares, but the real benefits went to poultry and fish industries. Because of this, The National Pig Farmers Association embarked upon an intensive campaign to saturate magazines, television, and radio with ads urging people to eat pork patties. The campaign succeeded when Congress designated the second of February as the day when every family would be urged to eat pork sausage. That day would be celebrated nationally, of course, as Ground Hog Day. Thats my story and Im sticking to it. Tomorrow is the time to pig out on sausages. But there is another legend associated with Groundhog Day. It started in 1887 with German settlers. Their tradition holds that if the sun comes out on Feb. 2, the groundhog will see its shadow and six more weeks of winter will follow. If no shadow is seen, legend says spring will come early. Last year in their own Groundhog Day ceremony, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, tying in reports on global warming, announced that there would be six more weeks of winter followed by 1000 years of summer.Celebrate!There are a lot of reasons to celebrate Groundhog Day. Its on nearly every calendar. The forecast is no less reliable than the National Weather Service. Unlike the Easter bunny, the groundhog keeps his dirty paws outside. At least one of them critters is bound to see things your way. As they used to say on radio: The Shadow knows. Its fun to say Punxsutawney. If a rodent can bring us an early spring, more power to him. And, in Minnesota, either way they come out ahead. Back in the not too distant past both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address occurred on the same day. This was such an ironic juxtaposition of events that national news reported that one involved a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelligence for prognostication. The other involved a groundhog. Im sure I know when this happened; your opinion may differ from mine. Was it during the Bush or Obama years?Bits and piecesA prospector marched into an assayers office and planted two huge nuggets on the counter. Well, dont just stand there, assay something. The first scientists who studied fog were mistified. Incontinence Hotline. Can you hold, please? I picked up a hitchhiker. Youve got to when you hit them. A man told his doctor, Doc, help me. Im addicted to Twitter. The doctor replied, Sorry, I dont follow you. A groundhogs laundry is known as hogwash. While creating wives, God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the world. And then He made the earth round. We should go metric every inch of the way. No matter how bad the movie is at the drive-in theater, most patrons love every minute of it. Show me a stolen sausage and Ill show you a missing link.Bear with usMilwaukee Faye, the well-known womens pool champion, was participating in the annual North Woods Tournament and was tied for first place with Minnesota Fats. She was just about to shoot when a mounted bears head fell from above the fireplace. Faye became distracted, miscued, and ended up in second place. When the trophy was remounted above the fireplace, a sign was placed next to it reading: This is the bear that made Milwaukee Faye miss.Another holidayOver breakfast one morning, a woman said to her husband, Ill bet you dont know what day this is. Of course I do, he answered as if he were offended, and left for the office. Later, the doorbell rang and when the woman opened the door, she was handed a box of a dozen long stemmed red roses. At 1 p.m., a foil-wrapped, two-pound box of her favorite chocolates was delivered. The woman couldnt wait for her husband to come home. First the flowers and then the chocolates she exclaimed. Ive never had a more wonderful Groundhog Day.Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds on the flyers posted on the Travel Board in the Lifestyle Center, or you may call 352-237-7152 for more information.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com Discontent with Washington government is more epidemic than this years flu outbreak. Disgust with Congress is particularly infectious. We hear frequently that our government is broken. Thats not accurate. While Congress is in disarray, and the White House is brazen, government agencies havent run out of checks yet. Ever-growing federal bureaucracies are writing regulations at double speed, and spending trillions of dollars faster than the Treasury and the Federal Reserve can collect, borrow, and print money. Meanwhile, Congress and the White House are preoccupied with their political agendas. Everett McKinley Dirksen, former member of the House and Senator from Illinois was prolific and entertaining in his writings and comments about Washington politicians. Dirksen said the name of the game is get elected; get re-elected; and never get mad. Get even. The game hasnt changed since Mr. Dirksen passed on in 1969. Congress and the White House are stuck in a second adolescence, accompanied by temper tantrums and name calling. In such times President Lincoln often said: This too shall pass. But how? In its own words: An organization named No Labels is a growing citizens movement of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents dedicated to promoting a new politics of problem solving. No Labels began in December 2010. Its current leaders are former Republican Governor Jon Huntsman of Utah and Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia. No Labels has some attributes of a skunkworks, the name given to a technology research projects begun just for the sake of innovation. Skunkworks avoid bureaucracy and ignore critics. Members are willing to take on a challenge which requires working outside the usual rules in order to achieve unusual results. Self-serving Washington critics include interest groups, congressional leaders, and political party enforcers, whose primary interest is power, not progress. No Labels is more interested in new attitudes and solving problems. Previous reform groups similar to No Labels have usually faded into obscurity after short lives. No Labels says it now has dozens of members of Congress who are interested in solving problems and hundreds of thousands of citizen supporters. While it claims no agenda, No Labels has a number of practical proposals, some of which include levity worthy of former Senator Dirksen. Theyve suggested Congress should have its pay suspended until it passes a budget and Congress people should earn their pay with at least three five-day work-weeks every month in Washington, not at home. Other No Labels thoughts: Would the House and Senate be willing to coordinate their schedules in order to make progress? Would the President accede to being questioned by Congress once a month, like the British Prime Minister before Parliament? Would the Senate permit a bi-partisan majority to override refusal of a chairman to bring a bill to the floor for a vote? Our skunky suggestion would be immediate retirement of all four party leaders of the House and Senate. Sooner would be better. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, February 1, 2013 Today marks the anniversary of a great American tragedy, one that doesnt get as much publicity as some others. But the memories linger for those of us who were part of the aftermath. Ten years ago I was working as an editor in New Smyrna Beach, putting out a small daily newspaper. I was living in Edgewater, about 10 miles south, and about 30 miles north of Cape Canaveral. This Feb. 1 was to be a big day, with the landing of the Space Shuttle Columbia. I was up watching a cable channel that those on the East Coast get, although around Ocala we dont. Its called the NASA channel, and it was much better to watch space activity on it than on the Orlando stations. There were no commentators, just the ground control communication to the astronauts. I had a press pass to go to the Cape that afternoon, to attend the press conference by the Columbia crew. There was no need to be there for the landing. I was only 45 minutes away and the conference wouldnt be for hours. Shortly before 9, a little while before the sonic boom would shake up the Space Coast, I kept hearing ground control say Houston, Columbia, meaning Houston was calling the astronauts. There was no response. Quickly, I sat up and took notice, keeping an eye on the clock. It was now well past re-entry time, and soon was past time for the sonic boom, and soon past time for the 9:16 scheduled landing. By now it was obvious that something was terribly wrong. I switched over to one of the networks, probably CNN, to see if they had joined the coverage, and they had, but they were way behind what all of us suspected. Then came the news that people had seen strange lights over California, and debris was falling in Texas. By then, it was undeniable. The astronauts were not coming home alive. Instead of going to Canaveral that afternoon, I went the next day when a memorial was set up and I quietly went through the line, asking for people from my circulation area. I found several, and they described their feelings and why they had made the short trip to the Cape, where admission was free on this day. By the following week, the headline on the news magazine said Not Again, something we all felt just 17 years after the Challenger disaster which, unlike Columbia, was viewed by many in Florida. I still remember the smiling pictures of the astronauts as they walked to the shuttle in what was their final walk on this earth. I cant imagine what those people went through in the moments between the breakup of the shuttle and their deaths. Were not sending that many people into space now, and frankly, I dont care if we ever do. Weve got too many problems to solve here on earth without worrying about things in outer space.

The hotly contested sheriffs race is over. Chris Blair has been sworn in and is the top law enforcement official in Marion County. Those whose loyalties lie elsewhere need to accept that and move on. Last weeks incident where a white powder was sent to the Sheriffs Office didnt prove anything, except that the department reacted properly and quickly determined there was no threat. The people who sent the powder, whatever it was, disrupted the operations of an emergency agency for a short while, which only temporarily weakened the ability to respond to real threatening situations. Did the people who sent this really think the sheriff opens his own mail? Is there anyone out there who was an executive who opened his own mail? Arent there people assigned to that duty everywhere, including the Sheriffs Office? That means the initial fear was felt by an assistant, as the news release put it, not the sheriff himself. And what about the powder. The anthrax scare has been over for years. We havent been told what the powder was, but theres no reason to think it wasnt baby powder, talcum powder, flour, or even that once-popular cleanser people used in their sinks. We do hope that the sheriffs investigators will find out who sent the threat and prosecute the perpetrators to the fullest. In fact, since it was sent through the mail, maybe a stint in a tough federal prison would be warranted. Meanwhile, the voting machines and ballots have been put away. Who knows what kind of election well have in just under four years. For now, though, Blair is the sheriff. And for those who dont like it get over it. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Blairs the sheriff; get over it! Recalling Columbia after 10 years Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Add a new label to your computer favorites Where is the outrage?Am I the only person in the United States of America that is outraged by our president sending planes, tanks, arms and aid to Egypt? Does he really think he is going to be the global leader? We are arming the enemy all over the Middle East. The weapons that killed the latest Americans over there were from Libya and we pump billions of dollars into that country. What about us? We should cut all foreign aid until we get on economic ground again. And then give aid only to friendly countries. Has all this aid made these countries like us any better? It seems like we pay to arm them and disarm our own citizens. Once again Americans wake up; your country is being given away right under your own noses. This will be his legacy. Pat Lee OcalaOutdated amendmentI have a question. When the Second Amendment to our Constitution was written and enacted, what was the status of, the about to become, Union? Well, let me see. We were fighting the British for our freedom from the King of England. Right? We were not fighting each other and wantonly killing our women, children, and each other. Right? The now antiquated Second Amendment was passed to allow the citizens of a new nation to bear arms against the British. In all the arguments regarding owning guns, we forget the time period in our history when the Second Amendment was included in the constitution. The constitution, at that time, was written for that time period, and yes, some are applicable to present day America, but not the Second Amendment. Now, to be fair to that period, and if we want that period of times benefits, we should go back to horse and buggy days, wash boards for laundry, candles and kerosene for lighting, bows and arrows for hunting, as well as the types of guns in those days, and open fires for cooking. No one would do that. But we will support something Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED thats now antiquated and was written for that time period. Now, weapons go back to the cave man. China produced the first black powder. We had guns, which we used to wipe out the native Americans while they used bows and arrows, the Colt 45, the Springfield rifle, and the old blunderbuss, and I dont mean those people in congress. If peole want guns, give them the old muzzle loaders and for a rifle, how about the Springfield 1903. PLEASESEELETTER, PAGE9 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel bolder as each new success falls into place. But caution is still advised through the end of the week. Until then, a stepby-step approach is best. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That cooperation you request could come at too high a price. Since few can beat the Bovine at being clever and resourceful, why not see what you can do on your own? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Aspects favor a quieter time spent getting closer to the people who are especially important to you. Theres always much more to learn and appreciate about each other. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The concerned Crab will act to resolve workplace misunderstandings before they get out of hand and cause more serious problems. Co-workers rally to support your efforts. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) What the Big Cat might see as a disturbing act of disloyalty might just be a failure of communication on both sides. Take time for mediation rather than confrontation. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be more patient with those who seem unwilling to accept your version of whats right. The fact is, theres a lot more to learn on all sides of this issue. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) It should be easier to assess the facts youll need to make an important decision. But dont commit if you still have doubts. There could be more you need to know. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your excitement level remains high as you continue working on that new project. Expect some setbacks. But on the whole, all will move pretty much on schedule. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) It might be wise to be more prudent with expenses right now. But your financial situation should soon clear up, and you could be back shopping, happily as ever. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might prefer sticking with your current schedule. But some newly emerging information could persuade you to consider a change. Keep an open mind. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might want to reject a suggested change. But it could be wise to go with the flow, at least for a while. You can always return to your first plan if you like. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Youre bolstered by both the practical and poetic sides of your nature as you maneuver through some unsettled emotional situations. Things ease up by weeks end. BORN THIS WEEK: People reach out to your generosity and wisdom, and consider you a trusted and treasured friend.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I want to ask the question! Does a gun cook, make bread, fry meat, change a diaper, sooth a childs sore throat, fix a tire, do the laundry, dust, vacuum, or any of the necessary things that need to be done in our daily life? No! Guns do one thing, and one thing only, for which they were designed to do, Kill! Yes, thats why they were developed, and thats why we still have them. Sure there are those who use them just for target practice. Thats fine. But if you can tell me or any other resonable red blooded American, if guns are good for anything, except killing, Id like to know it. There are those who say people kill people, guns dont kill people. If thats so, why didnt the deranged person who killed 20 beautiful children and six dedicated teachers, at Newtown, Connecticut, just use a potato masher, a fly swatter, or a basting brush? The reason, they dont kill people, guns kill people, and has anyone out there heard of anyone being killed with these items? Ill bet not. Over 900 hundred people, as of 1/16/13, have been killed with guns since the Newtown Massacre. On the average, in this country, 87 people are killed with guns each day, thats 31,755 people per year. More people than have been killed in the Iraq war and the 10 years Afghanistan war. Wow, its safer to be in Afghanistan than in the United States. Its a fact, we are the most violent nation in the world and own more guns than any other nation in the world. Oh well, what price freedom, with tongue in cheek. Finally, we have a president whos not afraid of the NRA, but the NRA and its supporters will try and ridicule him unmercifully, thats the American way. Well, I guess well have to wait and see if the president, saddled with a donothing Congress, but backed by logical citizens, will prevail, so we can feel safe in our homes again. Theres one thing for sure, if this article is published, there will be more dumb alibis and outcries to support gun ownership. Its called NRAisms. Oh well! Just think, if you hear a bang, bang, in your area, its not a car backfiring, its a gun. Oh yes, NRA really stands for Negate Responsible Americans. Bill Ford Ocala LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Batter up, breakfast lovers! IHOP, one of Americas most popular familyfriendly restaurants, known for everything you love about breakfast, will once again invite guests to enjoy free pancakes during National Pancake Day on Feb. 5, while celebrating Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals 30th anniversary. On this day, the restaurant chain hopes to raise $3 million as the first national fundraising campaign to kick off the 2013 fundraising year for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals. During National Pancake Day, the companys largest philanthropic event of the year, more than 1,500 IHOP restaurants across the country will invite guests to enjoy a complimentary stack of IHOPs signature delicious buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Guests will be encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to the local Childrens Miracle Network Hospital or other local charities. One hundred percent of the donations will help local charities provide vital equipment, life-saving procedures and critical care for sick and injured children. This will mark the eighth year that IHOP has held National Pancake Day, which to date has raised more than $10 million dollars for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities. In 2012 alone, IHOP raised more than $3 million for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals and other charities. Millions of free pancakes served on National Pancake Day mean millions of miracles for those in need, said Julia Stewart, Interim President, IHOP and CEO of the parent company, DineEquity, Inc. The concept is simple, but our mission is ambitious; to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible through Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals. For the past eight years, it has been a pleasure and a privilege for all of us at IHOP to participate in this worthy event, and each year our guests have proved to be incredibly generous, helping us not only reach but surpass our goal. We look forward to continuing that trend this year as we plan to once again flip and serve about 4 million free pancakes for charity. Guests visiting participating IHOP restaurants in support of Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals will also have the option to purchase Miracle Balloons for $1 and $5 each, throughout the month of January leading into National Pancake Day, with all proceeds going to the Childrens Miracle Network Hospital. Participating restaurants will display the balloons in celebration of Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals 30-year anniversary. Those who buy a $5 Miracle Balloon will receive a $5 off discount that can be credited toward their next visit. For more information on National Pancake Day, or to learn about Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals and make an online donation, visit www.ihoppancakeday.com. Free pancakes on Feb. 5 to benefit Childrens hospitals Up, up, and away: Open auditions for Ocala Civic Theatres production of Boeing-Boeing will be held on Monday, Feb. 4 and Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. Bernard, an American architect in Paris, has a girl in every port ... every airport, that is. Quite literally a man of the world, hes juggling three glamorous flight attendants at once: Gloria the American, Gabriella the Italian, and Gretchen the German. Unaware of each other, they each spend their layovers in the city of love at Bernards posh Parisian apartment. Adding to the international intrigue, hes engaged to all three! Although Bernard is meticulous in keeping the three fiances in the dark about each other, it is his housekeeper Berthe who really masterminds the deception, even though she heartily disapproves of Bernards amorous antics. When his old college chum Robert comes to visit, he too is swept into Bernards scheme. Then technology intervenes: The introduction of the newer and faster Boeing jet throws off Bernard's carefully orchestrated timetables, and all three women arrive at once. It takes the frantic combined efforts of Bernard, Robert, and Berthe to keep up the charade as this comedy takes flight into farce with international flair! Roles available are: Bernard (35-45) American architect living in Paris. The consummate smooth bachelor. Standard American accent. Robert (35-45) Friend of Bernards visiting from Wisconsin. Reserved and timid. Midwestern accent. Gloria (25-35) American TWA air hostess. Madly in love with Bernard. Very sexy, fancy-free, and bossy. New York accent. Gabriella (25-35) Italian Alitalia air hostess. Madly in love with Bernard. Very sexy, trusting, and nave. Heavy Italian accent. Gretchen (25-35) German Lufthansa air hostess. Madly in love with Bernard. Ocala Civic Theatre to hold auditions for Boeing-Boeing PLEASESEETHEATRE, PAGE24 Very sexy, militant, and emotional. Heavy German accent. Berthe (45-60) Bernards disdainful French cook and housekeeper. An efficient complainer. Heavy French accent. Ages listed are approximate. The play requires all actors (except Berthe) to be comfortable engaging in a lot of displays of affection and passion. Set in the swinging s just as the sexual revolution takes off, this is a classic door-slamming bedroom farce in the tradition of Georges Feydeau's A Flea In Her Ear and Ken Ludwig's Lend Me A Tenor. Its a mod world of free love and fast-paced laughs in this retro romp through Paris in the springtime! Copies of the script are available at the theater and may be checked out with a $10 refundable deposit. Newcomers and veterans alike are welcome and encouraged to audition. Those auditioning will be asked to do cold readings from the script. The director would like to hear auditioners attempt the appropriate accent for the character(s) for which they are trying out. Rehearsals begin Monday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. and are generally held Monday through Friday from 7 to 10 p.m. at the theater. Please bring to auditions a list of potential conflicts. There will be 20 public performances of Boeing-Boeing from March 21 to April 14. For more information, call the box office at 352-2362274 or go to www.ocalacivictheatre.com.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com One thing about me that has not changed all these years is that I refuse to waste my time on anything not important. There is too much to do in this world to waste time on unimportant things. This, however, sometimes gets me in trouble with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Do not let this get back to her, but I sometimes refer to it as the GMP syndrome. She is standing up about something and I am sitting in my easy chair not knowing what shes talking about. My wifes idea of what is important sometimes does not jive with my sense of importance. The real problem is that I do not understand what she thinks is important and she, on the other hand, does not understand that I do not think it is important. On those rare occasions when our sense of what is important collides, we celebrate. That is what is important. She thinks she won, and I know I won. Does it really matter? Very few times in life do we both get what we want. When that happens she stands up and gloats, while I sit down and grin. I am not sure what the difference is between a gloat and a grin, but then, does it really matter? I must confess we are on a different wavelength at times. The only time our waves are synchronized is when I am driving out of the driveway and waving goodbye and her returning the gesture. Do not get me wrong, we have been a marvelous working team for more years than I can remember. Of course, that does not mean anything because I cannot remember yesterday. However, we have worked together most marvelously for many years and I look forward to many more years of such marital shenanigans. In spite of that, we have our differences. One of the great differences we have is in the definition of importance. It is a rare day in June when our definitions are united in holy macaroni and cheese. It does happen though and we both revel in those moments. It is wonderful when we can stand together on some project or some issue. Now that I think of it, I believe we stand together more often than I have given credit. The thing that makes our relationship so marvelous and wonderful is that we allow the other person to have their differences. She is a broccoli (yuck) kind of a person and I on the other hand am an Apple Fritter kind of person. It just goes to show there are certain things that a person should stand for and then there are things that really do not matter. Looking out at the world, I notice a few things I just cannot stand for. Some do not make any difference one way or the other, while others really make a difference. The problem is by the time we understand the significance of something we are too old to do anything about it. The Pennsylvania Dutch has a wonderful saying, We grow too soon old and too late smart. By the time we have grown enough to become smart about something that something is no longer in vogue. At my age, of course, I am learning that I cannot stand too long for anything. Out in the world of politics and religion, people are always coming up with solutions to nonexistent problems. It takes a good politician and religious person to spend a lot of time working on a solution of which there is no problem. Our world is full of problems, to be sure. It would be a rare day when people would get their heads together and work on problems. All we have today are solutions. The trouble is finding the right solution for the right problem. Only in politics and in religion can we spend all our time working on a solution that does not address any particular problem. As this stands today, I think I am just going to sit down and let it go by, because it will. My father taught me the most important thing in life was never to try to fix something that aint broken ... or aint broken too bad. It is amazing what a little duct tape can do to put off fixing something that is not broken too bad. Not every crack needs fixing. Silence is golden and noise can be expensive especially when somebody else is talking. I like surrounding myself with the wonderful sounds of silence. I do not even like talking to myself. I do not listen anyway so what is the use. Often in my life, I have regretted saying something, but never, to my knowledge, have I regretted keeping my mouth shut. Yes, I will stand up for some things, but many things I will just sit down and take it. No reason to get all riled up when what people are talking about is like a breeze on a summer afternoon. It comes for a moment and then it has gone, and where it goes, nobody knows. The apostle Paul knew what to stand for. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage (Galatians 5:1). If you do not stand for something good, you will fall for anything, usually bad.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

These facts would be enough to make most young men shy away from the lovely young girl but Dick was in love. He persevered and one day he played an event that surprised even him. It was a party for the brother of his lovely young girl friend. Once they were introduced, there was never another question about him becoming a part of the family. Dick and Antoinette have been married for 56 years and have seven children. Dick junior is retired from the Air Force and lives in the Philippines along with his brother Joseph who is retired from the Navy. Son Frank lives in Orlando; Louis lives in Ocala and two daughters; Rachael and Jeanette also live in town. Their youngest daughter Anna resides in Cincinnati, Ohio. Along with their seven children, they enjoy and love their 10 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Family is important to Dick and Antoinette and having three of their children close by makes holidays and family days even nicer. When you look at Dicks history of being on the road, you wonder how he had time or money for so large a family but he has never been without work and never been without a job. From early on he formed his band and adopted the stage name, Dick Richards. The Dick Richards Band has been delighting audiences ever since. He has been a band leader all of his life, and the master musician has played all over the eastern half of the United States; in Canada and Las Vegas. A consummate accordion player, he even sat in several shows with the famous Ink Spots when their piano player came down with food poisoning. Just a few of the gigs Dick has had include the Saint Moritz in Quebec; Plantation Inn; Port Paradise; Holiday Inns; Piccadilly Hotel in New York; Old Mill Lounge in New Jersey and the Westchester Golf and Country Club. There are hundreds more including a regular tour in the Borsht Belt in the Poconos; and the annual Accordion Convention at the Gold Coast Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. At the annual Accordion Convention, Dick is a major force in organization; scheduling; programming and classes. He is known and loved by all who attend these annual events and he even gets a chance to entertain and impress his fellow accordionists in concert. Just three and a half years ago, Nette and Dick moved into the Cherrywood community. It was not long before the ever energetic man was giving lessons and began the Accordion Club. Every month on the last Wednesday at 5:30 in the evening, the clubhouse fills with eager fans to listen to his students and contemporaries playing their hearts out. Music of all types and from all kinds of instruments can be heard as they play solos; duets; form trios or combine for a full band. Dick still plays for various organizations in Marion County; parties; special events and he even gave your humble reporter a demonstration of his talent. One of the two songs he played was Lady of Spain. His dexterity; ear; energy and ability came shining through has he moved with speed; strength and quick changes on keys and buttons which belies his nearly 80 years of age. I was mightily impressed. A music icon in not only Marion County; but Central Florida, Dick and his lovely wife are just one example of the exceptionally talented; dedicated and giving people that make this community special. Come out and enjoy the beautiful music created by Dick and his fellow musicians on Feb. 27. Youll be glad you did. From Your ReporterThis week I received an invitation to the Appleton Museum of Art to see the display of Appleton in Bloom. This world class event is reported to feature a vast array of floral designs and blooms that will stun the senses with their beauty; scents and color. Im looking forward to it and encourage our Garden Club members and my readers to check out the three day show at the Appleton from Feb. 1 through 3. The Appleton Museum of Art is located at 4333 E Silver Springs Blvd. in Ocala. You can call 352-2914456 for more information about this one of a kind show.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com (For my friend, Ed, whose love of sports is eclipsed only by his love of Judaism)Pretzels, salsa, nachos and franks in a blanket. Beer, soda and pizza. East plays West. Its time for the Big Game, the XLVII Super Bowl, the football game of the year. And there were Jews who helped their respected teams on the way to victory. There was Josh Miller who grew up in East Brunswick, New Jersey, to a Conservative Jewish family. He played for the New England Patriots and was part of the winning team for the Super Bowl XXXIX. He reminisces that there is much pressure playing in such a game with so much at stake. He also feels great pride in being a Jewish athlete and he likes to feel that he is a role model for other Jewish athletes. He spent 12 years in the NFL also playing for the Steelers and the Titans. He anchors a drive-time sports talk show in Pittsburgh and speaks to kids groups about Jewish pride and Jewish sportsmanship. Miller joins a rather short list of Jewish players to be part of Super Bowl history. Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Randy the Rabbi Grossman won a Jewish-record four times in 1975, and Grossman grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia, Haverford, was given his nickname from defensive end Dwight White. It was a fitting name for a Jewish boy from Philly, Grossman recalls. Today Grossman works as a financial adviser for Wealth Management Strategies. The Rabbi went undrafted after a fine career at Temple University but the NFL considered him undersized for the big leagues. He stayed with the Steelers, overcoming the odds against him, riding the wave to victory when the Steelers captured the Super bowl title in 1974 in Grossmans rookie season. It was at that time that Grossman felt a pull to the Pittsburgh Jewish community. He felt it was good that the active Jewish community of that area had one of its own. In 1999, Grossman was inducted into the Philadelphia Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. Although he grew up Conservative, Grossman considers himself a Reform Jew. At his Bar Mitzvah, the rabbi was not sure he would show but he knew where to find the young man; in the back of the synagogue, playing football! Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Alan Sholomo Veingards life took an entirely different turn after his football days ended. He now tours the country talking about his transformation into an observant Jew, having embraced the Chabad-Lubavitch Hassidic movement. He notes that it is difficult being Shomer Shabbos, a Sabbath-observing Jew while being on a team. Friday night meetings and Saturday day games would be out but he feels that if you are a great player, exceptions could be made for you. Veingard still loves the game, but these days sports a yarmulke instead of a football helmet. Other Jews who were on the winning teams include San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman, Harris Barton (1989, ), 49ers tight end John Frank (1985, s89) Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Bobby Stein (1970) and Los Angels Raiders defensive end Lyle Alzado (1984). And while the list is short it is significant. And yes, please pass me a kosher hotdog with mustard.Source: Connecticut Jewish Ledger Jewish heroes from Super Bowl competition Judis Journal Judi Siegal Saturday Breakfast is served from 8 to 10 a.m. Donation is $4.

This week is no exception as we proudly present a couple who have all three of those attributes. If I were to mention the name Richard Fucci to many of the residents of Cherrywood, very few would recognize it or know who I was talking about. On the other hand, if I were to say Dick Richards, everyone would know that hes the head of the Accordion Club. So this weeks featured person is Dick Richards; an extraordinary musician; a loving family man and a person who with his wife Antoinette has led a very interesting life. Richards story begins back in Brooklyn, New York where he was born, Richard Fucci. He was one of two children in the family and he grew up with his sister in a predominately Italian neighborhood. That heritage and neighborhood guided him into learning to play the accordion; an instrument that he picked up when he was only 9 years old. His father, a truck driver, was making his rounds when he spotted a sign in a music store that read, Accordions for Sale; 14 free lessons. Originally, Richards Dad bought the accordion for himself but soon lost interest. He turned the instrument and remaining lessons over to his son and the rest, as they say, is history. Dick was so gifted and talented that after finishing the free lessons, his teacher recommended him to another instructor; a concert accordionist. For the next 10 years Richard took lessons including the study of classical accordion at the New York School for Performing Arts. This culminated in a well received concert at Carnegie Hall (as an aside, Dick talks about two of his classmates; Dom DeLuise and Robert Redford). The accordion opened several doors for Richard along the way. When he was a young man of 10 and 11, he would be hired by neighbors for birthday parties; receptions and anniversary parties. He laughs when he talks about making five or ten bucks; I always had money in my pocket. These performances won him great popularity and helped pay for his continued studies. One day while he was sitting at famous Nathans Coney Island, he saw a young lady walking down the street with her girl friend. He was struck by the classic Lightning Bolt from the moment he laid eyes on her. Later he would find out her name was Antoinette. Hes been in love with her from that moment on. Nette as Dick affectionately calls her, was the 13th of 14 children. Her mother was very protective of the young lady and to make matters a tad worse, her father was a foreman on the docks of New York.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com The Clubhouse at Cherrywood was sold out as 160 people, the largest crowd ever, took their seats with family and friends in anticipation of George Hamilton IV and Dave Atkins (hereafter referred to as Elvis). First on stage was George Hamilton who is originally from North Carolina and is a Senior Member of the Grand Old Opry. Since the 1950s he has been singing and entertaining audiences across the country and around the world. In his down home style, he took us through the history of his career and his interactions with some of the legends of country music. In one story he related that he had been married to his current wife; his high school sweetheart; for more than 50 years. A fellow performer at the Opry asked if he could really be a country star being married that long to the same woman. George brought back memories for many with his first hit song, A Rose and a Baby Ruth and subsequent hits like Behind the Barn and Abilene. At his encouragement, the crowd joined in the chorus of Abilene and I must say, we sounded pretty good. In his own homey style, he talked about sitting around the radio as a youngster and listening to the Opry knowing thats what he wanted to do; He spoke too of his family and of a George Hamilton the VI, his grandson, that is now on the scene. A mixture of song and testimony by George brought back recollections of the old Revival Camp meetings of years gone by. It was truly an American Country experience that entertained; lifted and gave hope. Elvis then came out and the whole scene changed. Within minutes, he was interacting with the audience; singing to the ladies (and a few of the guys) getting them to join in. He was particularly enthralled by 93-year-old Marie Brotherhood and 104-year-old Margaret Country and rock show becomes a sellout Cherrywood John Everlove Elvis with Marie Brotherhood.

Kender. The two ladies gave him a run for his money. Being the showman that he is, as he went through the crowd, serenading them and encouraging them to sing along, he draped a scarf around their necks just as Elvis used to do. Nearly every song that Elvis had ever sung, our Elvis sang also. Complete with gyrations; gestures and the world famous hip moves, the entertainment factor couldnt be beat. While he doesnt claim to be a comedian, he did tell the story of a man carrying a grandfathers clock in Nashville. Walking along, he fell and one of the stars of the Opry ran over to help him up. As the Opry star was helping the man to his feet he commented, Have you ever considered wearing a wrist watch? Elvis voice was excellent assisted by Dusty Rhodes, the sound technician. In addition, his vigor and positive attitude energized the audience putting smiles on everyones faces and bringing loud applause of approval. One of the nice things about Elvis is he doesnt take himself too seriously but he can sure put on a show. Thanks to Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management for the generous contribution to the nights entertainment and to the Activities Committee for their hard work with the food and decorating. Congrats to all that made this night a success.Newcomers Coffee HourOn Feb. 16 at 10 a.m. there will be a Welcome Coffee for all of our new residents here at Cherrywood.

Kender. The two ladies gave him a run for his money. Being the showman that he is, as he went through the crowd, serenading them and encouraging them to sing along, he draped a scarf around their necks just as Elvis used to do. Nearly every song that Elvis had ever sung, our Elvis sang also. Complete with gyrations; gestures and the world famous hip moves, the entertainment factor couldnt be beat. While he doesnt claim to be a comedian, he did tell the story of a man carrying a grandfathers clock in Nashville. Walking along, he fell and one of the stars of the Opry ran over to help him up. As the Opry star was helping the man to his feet he commented, Have you ever considered wearing a wrist watch? Elvis voice was excellent assisted by Dusty Rhodes, the sound technician. In addition, his vigor and positive attitude energized the audience putting smiles on everyones faces and bringing loud applause of approval. One of the nice things about Elvis is he doesnt take himself too seriously but he can sure put on a show. Thanks to Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management for the generous contribution to the nights entertainment and to the Activities Committee for their hard work with the food and decorating. Congrats to all that made this night a success.Newcomers Coffee HourOn Feb. 16 at 10 a.m. there will be a Welcome Coffee for all of our new residents here at Cherrywood.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com The Clubhouse at Cherrywood was sold out as 160 people, the largest crowd ever, took their seats with family and friends in anticipation of George Hamilton IV and Dave Atkins (hereafter referred to as Elvis). First on stage was George Hamilton who is originally from North Carolina and is a Senior Member of the Grand Old Opry. Since the 1950s he has been singing and entertaining audiences across the country and around the world. In his down home style, he took us through the history of his career and his interactions with some of the legends of country music. In one story he related that he had been married to his current wife; his high school sweetheart; for more than 50 years. A fellow performer at the Opry asked if he could really be a country star being married that long to the same woman. George brought back memories for many with his first hit song, A Rose and a Baby Ruth and subsequent hits like Behind the Barn and Abilene. At his encouragement, the crowd joined in the chorus of Abilene and I must say, we sounded pretty good. In his own homey style, he talked about sitting around the radio as a youngster and listening to the Opry knowing thats what he wanted to do; He spoke too of his family and of a George Hamilton the VI, his grandson, that is now on the scene. A mixture of song and testimony by George brought back recollections of the old Revival Camp meetings of years gone by. It was truly an American Country experience that entertained; lifted and gave hope. Elvis then came out and the whole scene changed. Within minutes, he was interacting with the audience; singing to the ladies (and a few of the guys) getting them to join in. He was particularly enthralled by 93-year-old Marie Brotherhood and 104-year-old Margaret Country and rock show becomes a sellout Cherrywood John Everlove Elvis with Marie Brotherhood.

This week is no exception as we proudly present a couple who have all three of those attributes. If I were to mention the name Richard Fucci to many of the residents of Cherrywood, very few would recognize it or know who I was talking about. On the other hand, if I were to say Dick Richards, everyone would know that hes the head of the Accordion Club. So this weeks featured person is Dick Richards; an extraordinary musician; a loving family man and a person who with his wife Antoinette has led a very interesting life. Richards story begins back in Brooklyn, New York where he was born, Richard Fucci. He was one of two children in the family and he grew up with his sister in a predominately Italian neighborhood. That heritage and neighborhood guided him into learning to play the accordion; an instrument that he picked up when he was only 9 years old. His father, a truck driver, was making his rounds when he spotted a sign in a music store that read, Accordions for Sale; 14 free lessons. Originally, Richards Dad bought the accordion for himself but soon lost interest. He turned the instrument and remaining lessons over to his son and the rest, as they say, is history. Dick was so gifted and talented that after finishing the free lessons, his teacher recommended him to another instructor; a concert accordionist. For the next 10 years Richard took lessons including the study of classical accordion at the New York School for Performing Arts. This culminated in a well received concert at Carnegie Hall (as an aside, Dick talks about two of his classmates; Dom DeLuise and Robert Redford). The accordion opened several doors for Richard along the way. When he was a young man of 10 and 11, he would be hired by neighbors for birthday parties; receptions and anniversary parties. He laughs when he talks about making five or ten bucks; I always had money in my pocket. These performances won him great popularity and helped pay for his continued studies. One day while he was sitting at famous Nathans Coney Island, he saw a young lady walking down the street with her girl friend. He was struck by the classic Lightning Bolt from the moment he laid eyes on her. Later he would find out her name was Antoinette. Hes been in love with her from that moment on. Nette as Dick affectionately calls her, was the 13th of 14 children. Her mother was very protective of the young lady and to make matters a tad worse, her father was a foreman on the docks of New York.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com (For my friend, Ed, whose love of sports is eclipsed only by his love of Judaism)Pretzels, salsa, nachos and franks in a blanket. Beer, soda and pizza. East plays West. Its time for the Big Game, the XLVII Super Bowl, the football game of the year. And there were Jews who helped their respected teams on the way to victory. There was Josh Miller who grew up in East Brunswick, New Jersey, to a Conservative Jewish family. He played for the New England Patriots and was part of the winning team for the Super Bowl XXXIX. He reminisces that there is much pressure playing in such a game with so much at stake. He also feels great pride in being a Jewish athlete and he likes to feel that he is a role model for other Jewish athletes. He spent 12 years in the NFL also playing for the Steelers and the Titans. He anchors a drive-time sports talk show in Pittsburgh and speaks to kids groups about Jewish pride and Jewish sportsmanship. Miller joins a rather short list of Jewish players to be part of Super Bowl history. Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Randy the Rabbi Grossman won a Jewish-record four times in 1975, and Grossman grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia, Haverford, was given his nickname from defensive end Dwight White. It was a fitting name for a Jewish boy from Philly, Grossman recalls. Today Grossman works as a financial adviser for Wealth Management Strategies. The Rabbi went undrafted after a fine career at Temple University but the NFL considered him undersized for the big leagues. He stayed with the Steelers, overcoming the odds against him, riding the wave to victory when the Steelers captured the Super bowl title in 1974 in Grossmans rookie season. It was at that time that Grossman felt a pull to the Pittsburgh Jewish community. He felt it was good that the active Jewish community of that area had one of its own. In 1999, Grossman was inducted into the Philadelphia Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. Although he grew up Conservative, Grossman considers himself a Reform Jew. At his Bar Mitzvah, the rabbi was not sure he would show but he knew where to find the young man; in the back of the synagogue, playing football! Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Alan Sholomo Veingards life took an entirely different turn after his football days ended. He now tours the country talking about his transformation into an observant Jew, having embraced the Chabad-Lubavitch Hassidic movement. He notes that it is difficult being Shomer Shabbos, a Sabbath-observing Jew while being on a team. Friday night meetings and Saturday day games would be out but he feels that if you are a great player, exceptions could be made for you. Veingard still loves the game, but these days sports a yarmulke instead of a football helmet. Other Jews who were on the winning teams include San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman, Harris Barton (1989, ), 49ers tight end John Frank (1985, s89) Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Bobby Stein (1970) and Los Angels Raiders defensive end Lyle Alzado (1984). And while the list is short it is significant. And yes, please pass me a kosher hotdog with mustard.Source: Connecticut Jewish Ledger Jewish heroes from Super Bowl competition Judis Journal Judi Siegal Saturday Breakfast is served from 8 to 10 a.m. Donation is $4.

Pancakes are eaten on this day because they contain milk, butter and eggs, foods which were once forbidden during Lent.

These facts would be enough to make most young men shy away from the lovely young girl but Dick was in love. He persevered and one day he played an event that surprised even him. It was a party for the brother of his lovely young girl friend. Once they were introduced, there was never another question about him becoming a part of the family. Dick and Antoinette have been married for 56 years and have seven children. Dick junior is retired from the Air Force and lives in the Philippines along with his brother Joseph who is retired from the Navy. Son Frank lives in Orlando; Louis lives in Ocala and two daughters; Rachael and Jeanette also live in town. Their youngest daughter Anna resides in Cincinnati, Ohio. Along with their seven children, they enjoy and love their 10 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Family is important to Dick and Antoinette and having three of their children close by makes holidays and family days even nicer. When you look at Dicks history of being on the road, you wonder how he had time or money for so large a family but he has never been without work and never been without a job. From early on he formed his band and adopted the stage name, Dick Richards. The Dick Richards Band has been delighting audiences ever since. He has been a band leader all of his life, and the master musician has played all over the eastern half of the United States; in Canada and Las Vegas. A consummate accordion player, he even sat in several shows with the famous Ink Spots when their piano player came down with food poisoning. Just a few of the gigs Dick has had include the Saint Moritz in Quebec; Plantation Inn; Port Paradise; Holiday Inns; Piccadilly Hotel in New York; Old Mill Lounge in New Jersey and the Westchester Golf and Country Club. There are hundreds more including a regular tour in the Borsht Belt in the Poconos; and the annual Accordion Convention at the Gold Coast Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. At the annual Accordion Convention, Dick is a major force in organization; scheduling; programming and classes. He is known and loved by all who attend these annual events and he even gets a chance to entertain and impress his fellow accordionists in concert. Just three and a half years ago, Nette and Dick moved into the Cherrywood community. It was not long before the ever energetic man was giving lessons and began the Accordion Club. Every month on the last Wednesday at 5:30 in the evening, the clubhouse fills with eager fans to listen to his students and contemporaries playing their hearts out. Music of all types and from all kinds of instruments can be heard as they play solos; duets; form trios or combine for a full band. Dick still plays for various organizations in Marion County; parties; special events and he even gave your humble reporter a demonstration of his talent. One of the two songs he played was Lady of Spain. His dexterity; ear; energy and ability came shining through has he moved with speed; strength and quick changes on keys and buttons which belies his nearly 80 years of age. I was mightily impressed. A music icon in not only Marion County; but Central Florida, Dick and his lovely wife are just one example of the exceptionally talented; dedicated and giving people that make this community special. Come out and enjoy the beautiful music created by Dick and his fellow musicians on Feb. 27. Youll be glad you did. From Your ReporterThis week I received an invitation to the Appleton Museum of Art to see the display of Appleton in Bloom. This world class event is reported to feature a vast array of floral designs and blooms that will stun the senses with their beauty; scents and color. Im looking forward to it and encourage our Garden Club members and my readers to check out the three day show at the Appleton from Feb. 1 through 3. The Appleton Museum of Art is located at 4333 E Silver Springs Blvd. in Ocala. You can call 352-2914456 for more information about this one of a kind show.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com One thing about me that has not changed all these years is that I refuse to waste my time on anything not important. There is too much to do in this world to waste time on unimportant things. This, however, sometimes gets me in trouble with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Do not let this get back to her, but I sometimes refer to it as the GMP syndrome. She is standing up about something and I am sitting in my easy chair not knowing what shes talking about. My wifes idea of what is important sometimes does not jive with my sense of importance. The real problem is that I do not understand what she thinks is important and she, on the other hand, does not understand that I do not think it is important. On those rare occasions when our sense of what is important collides, we celebrate. That is what is important. She thinks she won, and I know I won. Does it really matter? Very few times in life do we both get what we want. When that happens she stands up and gloats, while I sit down and grin. I am not sure what the difference is between a gloat and a grin, but then, does it really matter? I must confess we are on a different wavelength at times. The only time our waves are synchronized is when I am driving out of the driveway and waving goodbye and her returning the gesture. Do not get me wrong, we have been a marvelous working team for more years than I can remember. Of course, that does not mean anything because I cannot remember yesterday. However, we have worked together most marvelously for many years and I look forward to many more years of such marital shenanigans. In spite of that, we have our differences. One of the great differences we have is in the definition of importance. It is a rare day in June when our definitions are united in holy macaroni and cheese. It does happen though and we both revel in those moments. It is wonderful when we can stand together on some project or some issue. Now that I think of it, I believe we stand together more often than I have given credit. The thing that makes our relationship so marvelous and wonderful is that we allow the other person to have their differences. She is a broccoli (yuck) kind of a person and I on the other hand am an Apple Fritter kind of person. It just goes to show there are certain things that a person should stand for and then there are things that really do not matter. Looking out at the world, I notice a few things I just cannot stand for. Some do not make any difference one way or the other, while others really make a difference. The problem is by the time we understand the significance of something we are too old to do anything about it. The Pennsylvania Dutch has a wonderful saying, We grow too soon old and too late smart. By the time we have grown enough to become smart about something that something is no longer in vogue. At my age, of course, I am learning that I cannot stand too long for anything. Out in the world of politics and religion, people are always coming up with solutions to nonexistent problems. It takes a good politician and religious person to spend a lot of time working on a solution of which there is no problem. Our world is full of problems, to be sure. It would be a rare day when people would get their heads together and work on problems. All we have today are solutions. The trouble is finding the right solution for the right problem. Only in politics and in religion can we spend all our time working on a solution that does not address any particular problem. As this stands today, I think I am just going to sit down and let it go by, because it will. My father taught me the most important thing in life was never to try to fix something that aint broken ... or aint broken too bad. It is amazing what a little duct tape can do to put off fixing something that is not broken too bad. Not every crack needs fixing. Silence is golden and noise can be expensive especially when somebody else is talking. I like surrounding myself with the wonderful sounds of silence. I do not even like talking to myself. I do not listen anyway so what is the use. Often in my life, I have regretted saying something, but never, to my knowledge, have I regretted keeping my mouth shut. Yes, I will stand up for some things, but many things I will just sit down and take it. No reason to get all riled up when what people are talking about is like a breeze on a summer afternoon. It comes for a moment and then it has gone, and where it goes, nobody knows. The apostle Paul knew what to stand for. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage (Galatians 5:1). If you do not stand for something good, you will fall for anything, usually bad.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I want to ask the question! Does a gun cook, make bread, fry meat, change a diaper, sooth a childs sore throat, fix a tire, do the laundry, dust, vacuum, or any of the necessary things that need to be done in our daily life? No! Guns do one thing, and one thing only, for which they were designed to do, Kill! Yes, thats why they were developed, and thats why we still have them. Sure there are those who use them just for target practice. Thats fine. But if you can tell me or any other resonable red blooded American, if guns are good for anything, except killing, Id like to know it. There are those who say people kill people, guns dont kill people. If thats so, why didnt the deranged person who killed 20 beautiful children and six dedicated teachers, at Newtown, Connecticut, just use a potato masher, a fly swatter, or a basting brush? The reason, they dont kill people, guns kill people, and has anyone out there heard of anyone being killed with these items? Ill bet not. Over 900 hundred people, as of 1/16/13, have been killed with guns since the Newtown Massacre. On the average, in this country, 87 people are killed with guns each day, thats 31,755 people per year. More people than have been killed in the Iraq war and the 10 years Afghanistan war. Wow, its safer to be in Afghanistan than in the United States. Its a fact, we are the most violent nation in the world and own more guns than any other nation in the world. Oh well, what price freedom, with tongue in cheek. Finally, we have a president whos not afraid of the NRA, but the NRA and its supporters will try and ridicule him unmercifully, thats the American way. Well, I guess well have to wait and see if the president, saddled with a donothing Congress, but backed by logical citizens, will prevail, so we can feel safe in our homes again. Theres one thing for sure, if this article is published, there will be more dumb alibis and outcries to support gun ownership. Its called NRAisms. Oh well! Just think, if you hear a bang, bang, in your area, its not a car backfiring, its a gun. Oh yes, NRA really stands for Negate Responsible Americans. Bill Ford Ocala LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Batter up, breakfast lovers! IHOP, one of Americas most popular familyfriendly restaurants, known for everything you love about breakfast, will once again invite guests to enjoy free pancakes during National Pancake Day on Feb. 5, while celebrating Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals 30th anniversary. On this day, the restaurant chain hopes to raise $3 million as the first national fundraising campaign to kick off the 2013 fundraising year for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals. During National Pancake Day, the companys largest philanthropic event of the year, more than 1,500 IHOP restaurants across the country will invite guests to enjoy a complimentary stack of IHOPs signature delicious buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Guests will be encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to the local Childrens Miracle Network Hospital or other local charities. One hundred percent of the donations will help local charities provide vital equipment, life-saving procedures and critical care for sick and injured children. This will mark the eighth year that IHOP has held National Pancake Day, which to date has raised more than $10 million dollars for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals and other local charities. In 2012 alone, IHOP raised more than $3 million for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals and other charities. Millions of free pancakes served on National Pancake Day mean millions of miracles for those in need, said Julia Stewart, Interim President, IHOP and CEO of the parent company, DineEquity, Inc. The concept is simple, but our mission is ambitious; to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible through Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals. For the past eight years, it has been a pleasure and a privilege for all of us at IHOP to participate in this worthy event, and each year our guests have proved to be incredibly generous, helping us not only reach but surpass our goal. We look forward to continuing that trend this year as we plan to once again flip and serve about 4 million free pancakes for charity. Guests visiting participating IHOP restaurants in support of Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals will also have the option to purchase Miracle Balloons for $1 and $5 each, throughout the month of January leading into National Pancake Day, with all proceeds going to the Childrens Miracle Network Hospital. Participating restaurants will display the balloons in celebration of Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals 30-year anniversary. Those who buy a $5 Miracle Balloon will receive a $5 off discount that can be credited toward their next visit.

Free pancakes on Feb. 5 to benefit Childrens hospitals Up, up, and away: Open auditions for Ocala Civic Theatres production of Boeing-Boeing will be held on Monday, Feb. 4 and Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. Bernard, an American architect in Paris, has a girl in every port ... every airport, that is. Quite literally a man of the world, hes juggling three glamorous flight attendants at once: Gloria the American, Gabriella the Italian, and Gretchen the German. Unaware of each other, they each spend their layovers in the city of love at Bernards posh Parisian apartment. Adding to the international intrigue, hes engaged to all three! Although Bernard is meticulous in keeping the three fiances in the dark about each other, it is his housekeeper Berthe who really masterminds the deception, even though she heartily disapproves of Bernards amorous antics. When his old college chum Robert comes to visit, he too is swept into Bernards scheme. Then technology intervenes: The introduction of the newer and faster Boeing jet throws off Bernard's carefully orchestrated timetables, and all three women arrive at once. It takes the frantic combined efforts of Bernard, Robert, and Berthe to keep up the charade as this comedy takes flight into farce with international flair! Roles available are: Bernard (35-45) American architect living in Paris. The consummate smooth bachelor. Standard American accent. Robert (35-45) Friend of Bernards visiting from Wisconsin. Reserved and timid. Midwestern accent. Gloria (25-35) American TWA air hostess. Madly in love with Bernard. Very sexy, fancy-free, and bossy. New York accent. Gabriella (25-35) Italian Alitalia air hostess. Madly in love with Bernard. Very sexy, trusting, and nave. Heavy Italian accent. Gretchen (25-35) German Lufthansa air hostess. Madly in love with Bernard. Ocala Civic Theatre to hold auditions for Boeing-Boeing PLEASESEETHEATRE, PAGE24 Very sexy, militant, and emotional. Heavy German accent. Berthe (45-60) Bernards disdainful French cook and housekeeper. An efficient complainer. Heavy French accent. Ages listed are approximate. The play requires all actors (except Berthe) to be comfortable engaging in a lot of displays of affection and passion. Set in the swinging s just as the sexual revolution takes off, this is a classic door-slamming bedroom farce in the tradition of Georges Feydeau's A Flea In Her Ear and Ken Ludwig's Lend Me A Tenor. Its a mod world of free love and fast-paced laughs in this retro romp through Paris in the springtime! Copies of the script are available at the theater and may be checked out with a $10 refundable deposit. Newcomers and veterans alike are welcome and encouraged to audition. Those auditioning will be asked to do cold readings from the script. The director would like to hear auditioners attempt the appropriate accent for the character(s) for which they are trying out. Rehearsals begin Monday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. and are generally held Monday through Friday from 7 to 10 p.m. at the theater. Please bring to auditions a list of potential conflicts. There will be 20 public performances of Boeing-Boeing from March 21 to April 14. For more information, call the box office at 352-2362274 or go to www.ocalacivictheatre.com.

Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com Discontent with Washington government is more epidemic than this years flu outbreak. Disgust with Congress is particularly infectious. We hear frequently that our government is broken. Thats not accurate. While Congress is in disarray, and the White House is brazen, government agencies havent run out of checks yet. Ever-growing federal bureaucracies are writing regulations at double speed, and spending trillions of dollars faster than the Treasury and the Federal Reserve can collect, borrow, and print money. Meanwhile, Congress and the White House are preoccupied with their political agendas. Everett McKinley Dirksen, former member of the House and Senator from Illinois was prolific and entertaining in his writings and comments about Washington politicians. Dirksen said the name of the game is get elected; get re-elected; and never get mad. Get even. The game hasnt changed since Mr. Dirksen passed on in 1969. Congress and the White House are stuck in a second adolescence, accompanied by temper tantrums and name calling. In such times President Lincoln often said: This too shall pass. But how? In its own words: An organization named No Labels is a growing citizens movement of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents dedicated to promoting a new politics of problem solving. No Labels began in December 2010. Its current leaders are former Republican Governor Jon Huntsman of Utah and Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia. No Labels has some attributes of a skunkworks, the name given to a technology research projects begun just for the sake of innovation. Skunkworks avoid bureaucracy and ignore critics. Members are willing to take on a challenge which requires working outside the usual rules in order to achieve unusual results. Self-serving Washington critics include interest groups, congressional leaders, and political party enforcers, whose primary interest is power, not progress. No Labels is more interested in new attitudes and solving problems. Previous reform groups similar to No Labels have usually faded into obscurity after short lives. No Labels says it now has dozens of members of Congress who are interested in solving problems and hundreds of thousands of citizen supporters. While it claims no agenda, No Labels has a number of practical proposals, some of which include levity worthy of former Senator Dirksen. Theyve suggested Congress should have its pay suspended until it passes a budget and Congress people should earn their pay with at least three five-day work-weeks every month in Washington, not at home. Other No Labels thoughts: Would the House and Senate be willing to coordinate their schedules in order to make progress? Would the President accede to being questioned by Congress once a month, like the British Prime Minister before Parliament? Would the Senate permit a bi-partisan majority to override refusal of a chairman to bring a bill to the floor for a vote? Our skunky suggestion would be immediate retirement of all four party leaders of the House and Senate. Sooner would be better. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, February 1, 2013 Today marks the anniversary of a great American tragedy, one that doesnt get as much publicity as some others. But the memories linger for those of us who were part of the aftermath. Ten years ago I was working as an editor in New Smyrna Beach, putting out a small daily newspaper. I was living in Edgewater, about 10 miles south, and about 30 miles north of Cape Canaveral. This Feb. 1 was to be a big day, with the landing of the Space Shuttle Columbia. I was up watching a cable channel that those on the East Coast get, although around Ocala we dont. Its called the NASA channel, and it was much better to watch space activity on it than on the Orlando stations. There were no commentators, just the ground control communication to the astronauts. I had a press pass to go to the Cape that afternoon, to attend the press conference by the Columbia crew. There was no need to be there for the landing. I was only 45 minutes away and the conference wouldnt be for hours. Shortly before 9, a little while before the sonic boom would shake up the Space Coast, I kept hearing ground control say Houston, Columbia, meaning Houston was calling the astronauts. There was no response. Quickly, I sat up and took notice, keeping an eye on the clock. It was now well past re-entry time, and soon was past time for the sonic boom, and soon past time for the 9:16 scheduled landing. By now it was obvious that something was terribly wrong. I switched over to one of the networks, probably CNN, to see if they had joined the coverage, and they had, but they were way behind what all of us suspected. Then came the news that people had seen strange lights over California, and debris was falling in Texas. By then, it was undeniable. The astronauts were not coming home alive. Instead of going to Canaveral that afternoon, I went the next day when a memorial was set up and I quietly went through the line, asking for people from my circulation area. I found several, and they described their feelings and why they had made the short trip to the Cape, where admission was free on this day. By the following week, the headline on the news magazine said Not Again, something we all felt just 17 years after the Challenger disaster which, unlike Columbia, was viewed by many in Florida. I still remember the smiling pictures of the astronauts as they walked to the shuttle in what was their final walk on this earth. I cant imagine what those people went through in the moments between the breakup of the shuttle and their deaths. Were not sending that many people into space now, and frankly, I dont care if we ever do. Weve got too many problems to solve here on earth without worrying about things in outer space.

The hotly contested sheriffs race is over. Chris Blair has been sworn in and is the top law enforcement official in Marion County. Those whose loyalties lie elsewhere need to accept that and move on. Last weeks incident where a white powder was sent to the Sheriffs Office didnt prove anything, except that the department reacted properly and quickly determined there was no threat. The people who sent the powder, whatever it was, disrupted the operations of an emergency agency for a short while, which only temporarily weakened the ability to respond to real threatening situations. Did the people who sent this really think the sheriff opens his own mail? Is there anyone out there who was an executive who opened his own mail? Arent there people assigned to that duty everywhere, including the Sheriffs Office? That means the initial fear was felt by an assistant, as the news release put it, not the sheriff himself. And what about the powder. The anthrax scare has been over for years. We havent been told what the powder was, but theres no reason to think it wasnt baby powder, talcum powder, flour, or even that once-popular cleanser people used in their sinks. We do hope that the sheriffs investigators will find out who sent the threat and prosecute the perpetrators to the fullest. In fact, since it was sent through the mail, maybe a stint in a tough federal prison would be warranted. Meanwhile, the voting machines and ballots have been put away. Who knows what kind of election well have in just under four years. For now, though, Blair is the sheriff. And for those who dont like it get over it. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Blairs the sheriff; get over it! Recalling Columbia after 10 years Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Add a new label to your computer favorites Where is the outrage?Am I the only person in the United States of America that is outraged by our president sending planes, tanks, arms and aid to Egypt? Does he really think he is going to be the global leader? We are arming the enemy all over the Middle East. The weapons that killed the latest Americans over there were from Libya and we pump billions of dollars into that country. What about us? We should cut all foreign aid until we get on economic ground again. And then give aid only to friendly countries. Has all this aid made these countries like us any better? It seems like we pay to arm them and disarm our own citizens. Once again Americans wake up; your country is being given away right under your own noses. This will be his legacy. Pat Lee OcalaOutdated amendmentI have a question. When the Second Amendment to our Constitution was written and enacted, what was the status of, the about to become, Union? Well, let me see. We were fighting the British for our freedom from the King of England. Right? We were not fighting each other and wantonly killing our women, children, and each other. Right? The now antiquated Second Amendment was passed to allow the citizens of a new nation to bear arms against the British. In all the arguments regarding owning guns, we forget the time period in our history when the Second Amendment was included in the constitution. The constitution, at that time, was written for that time period, and yes, some are applicable to present day America, but not the Second Amendment. Now, to be fair to that period, and if we want that period of times benefits, we should go back to horse and buggy days, wash boards for laundry, candles and kerosene for lighting, bows and arrows for hunting, as well as the types of guns in those days, and open fires for cooking. No one would do that. But we will support something Jim Clark Editor READER OPINIONS INVITED thats now antiquated and was written for that time period. Now, weapons go back to the cave man. China produced the first black powder. We had guns, which we used to wipe out the native Americans while they used bows and arrows, the Colt 45, the Springfield rifle, and the old blunderbuss, and I dont mean those people in congress. If peole want guns, give them the old muzzle loaders and for a rifle, how about the Springfield 1903. PLEASESEELETTER, PAGE9 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel bolder as each new success falls into place. But caution is still advised through the end of the week. Until then, a stepby-step approach is best. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That cooperation you request could come at too high a price. Since few can beat the Bovine at being clever and resourceful, why not see what you can do on your own? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Aspects favor a quieter time spent getting closer to the people who are especially important to you. Theres always much more to learn and appreciate about each other. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The concerned Crab will act to resolve workplace misunderstandings before they get out of hand and cause more serious problems. Co-workers rally to support your efforts. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) What the Big Cat might see as a disturbing act of disloyalty might just be a failure of communication on both sides. Take time for mediation rather than confrontation. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be more patient with those who seem unwilling to accept your version of whats right. The fact is, theres a lot more to learn on all sides of this issue. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) It should be easier to assess the facts youll need to make an important decision. But dont commit if you still have doubts. There could be more you need to know. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your excitement level remains high as you continue working on that new project. Expect some setbacks. But on the whole, all will move pretty much on schedule. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) It might be wise to be more prudent with expenses right now. But your financial situation should soon clear up, and you could be back shopping, happily as ever. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might prefer sticking with your current schedule. But some newly emerging information could persuade you to consider a change. Keep an open mind. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might want to reject a suggested change. But it could be wise to go with the flow, at least for a while. You can always return to your first plan if you like. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Youre bolstered by both the practical and poetic sides of your nature as you maneuver through some unsettled emotional situations. Things ease up by weeks end. BORN THIS WEEK: People reach out to your generosity and wisdom, and consider you a trusted and treasured friend.

Some time ago pig farmers never did well because most Americans prefer beef. They had been hopeful to see a business increase after the beef health scares, but the real benefits went to poultry and fish industries. Because of this, The National Pig Farmers Association embarked upon an intensive campaign to saturate magazines, television, and radio with ads urging people to eat pork patties. The campaign succeeded when Congress designated the second of February as the day when every family would be urged to eat pork sausage. That day would be celebrated nationally, of course, as Ground Hog Day. Thats my story and Im sticking to it. Tomorrow is the time to pig out on sausages. But there is another legend associated with Groundhog Day. It started in 1887 with German settlers. Their tradition holds that if the sun comes out on Feb. 2, the groundhog will see its shadow and six more weeks of winter will follow. If no shadow is seen, legend says spring will come early. Last year in their own Groundhog Day ceremony, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, tying in reports on global warming, announced that there would be six more weeks of winter followed by 1000 years of summer.Celebrate!There are a lot of reasons to celebrate Groundhog Day. Its on nearly every calendar. The forecast is no less reliable than the National Weather Service. Unlike the Easter bunny, the groundhog keeps his dirty paws outside. At least one of them critters is bound to see things your way. As they used to say on radio: The Shadow knows. Its fun to say Punxsutawney. If a rodent can bring us an early spring, more power to him. And, in Minnesota, either way they come out ahead. Back in the not too distant past both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address occurred on the same day. This was such an ironic juxtaposition of events that national news reported that one involved a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelligence for prognostication. The other involved a groundhog. Im sure I know when this happened; your opinion may differ from mine. Was it during the Bush or Obama years?Bits and piecesA prospector marched into an assayers office and planted two huge nuggets on the counter. Well, dont just stand there, assay something. The first scientists who studied fog were mistified. Incontinence Hotline. Can you hold, please? I picked up a hitchhiker. Youve got to when you hit them. A man told his doctor, Doc, help me. Im addicted to Twitter. The doctor replied, Sorry, I dont follow you. A groundhogs laundry is known as hogwash. While creating wives, God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the world. And then He made the earth round. We should go metric every inch of the way. No matter how bad the movie is at the drive-in theater, most patrons love every minute of it. Show me a stolen sausage and Ill show you a missing link.Bear with usMilwaukee Faye, the well-known womens pool champion, was participating in the annual North Woods Tournament and was tied for first place with Minnesota Fats. She was just about to shoot when a mounted bears head fell from above the fireplace. Faye became distracted, miscued, and ended up in second place. When the trophy was remounted above the fireplace, a sign was placed next to it reading: This is the bear that made Milwaukee Faye miss.Another holidayOver breakfast one morning, a woman said to her husband, Ill bet you dont know what day this is. Of course I do, he answered as if he were offended, and left for the office. Later, the doorbell rang and when the woman opened the door, she was handed a box of a dozen long stemmed red roses. At 1 p.m., a foil-wrapped, two-pound box of her favorite chocolates was delivered. The woman couldnt wait for her husband to come home. First the flowers and then the chocolates she exclaimed. Ive never had a more wonderful Groundhog Day.Friday, February 1, 2013 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, February 1, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds on the flyers posted on the Travel Board in the Lifestyle Center, or you may call 352-237-7152 for more information.

OBITUARY Blood donors neededLifeSouth Community Blood Centers is encouraged by the response of donors to the emergency need for blood, but supplies are still critically short for three specific blood types. Weve had tremendous support from the media in spreading the word about this blood shortage, said LifeSouth Vice President of Operations J.B. Bowles. Type-O is typically always in high demand, Bowles explained, because its considered the Universal Donor. O-positive is the most common blood type, about 37 percent of Americans have it, and O-positive red blood cells can be used by anyone with an Rh-positive blood type, which is about 85 percent of us. O-negative is more rare, he added, only about 7 percent of Americans have it, but in an emergency all of us can use O-negative red blood cells. For information about donating, donors can call LifeSouth toll-free at 888-795-2707 or go to www.lifesouth.org. 00075X7 Clip and Save Clip and Save Clip and Save Clip and Save Grandfather Clock 352-873-7587 GRANDFATHER CLOCK REPAIR Service and repairs 43 years full time experience Specializing in floor clocks.

Nearly every way requires money. The principal fund raiser is the Red Kettle Campaign. A familiar sight this past holiday season at the Canopy Oak Publix, at each door, was the Bell Ringers. Ocala West UMC was the sponsor, but the participants came from all corners of the SR200 Corridor: Ocala West UMC congregational members, Spruce Creek Preserve Midway Club, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of all ages with their leaders as well as many other good hearted people. The Salvation Army had 20 Red Kettle locations and a good natured completion develops for the four fund raising trophies they award at the end of the campaign. This year Ocalas Salvation Armys Red Kettle Campaign raised $243,882.25. The fourth place winner went to Joe Weldon and the First Baptist Church of Ocala who collected $12,153.73. Third place was Ocala Kiwanis at $14,531.24 with second place team of Silver Springs Rotary raising $16,908.64. Due to the generosity of the good folks who shopped at Canopy Oak Publix, for the second straight year Ocala West UMC and its dedicated Bell Ringers received the first place trophy with a total collected of $18,898.22. Local churchs bell-ringers win competition Some practice, and some real work Ocala firefighters put in some practice last week in dousing aircraft fires at the Ocala International Airport, as seen in the two photos below. The training props included manikins to simulate passenger rescue and a mockup of an airplane. But also, firefighters got to battle a real blaze on Jan. 24 at 11:02 a.m. at the Paddock Park Apartments, 2901 S.W. 41st St., in building 2000. Smoke could initially be seen from several miles away, and upon arrival, firefighters observed flames coming through the roof of the two-story wood structure. The occupied building contained 16 aparments, and firefighters were quickly able to search the building to ensure everyone had safely evacuated. Fire and smoke damage was contained to just four of those apartments, and firefighters remained on scene for more than five hours, said Battalion Chief Wally Brinkman. The cause is under investigation. PHOTO BY JIM CLARKWMBA officersThe West Marion Business Associations new officers are shown at Tuesdays general meeting of the group. From the left are Michel Northsea, marketing; Conrad Melancon, vice president, Jim Martin, president and Erica Jones, secretary. Not available when photo was taken were Heather Cabrera, treasurer, and Vernetta Sealy, membership chair. A suspicious package with a powdery substance was delivered and opened at the Marion County Sheriffs Office at 8:50 a.m., Friday, Jan. 25, inside Sheriff ChrisBlairs office, 692 N.W. 30th Ave., Ocala. The assistant, who opened the letter, immediately called for help and emergency protocols were activated. The letter contained a direct threat to Blair. The assistant was not injured. Fire rescue professionals from both the Marion County Fire Rescue and the Ocala Fire Rescue took over the scene to contain the suspicious powder and package. This is serious, Blair said. The emotional stress on our employees will not be tolerated. Disrupting MCSO business will not be tolerated. And the emergency resources that were used could have been elsewhere protecting the community, Blair said. Along with fire agencies, the incident involved the Marion County Sheriffs Office Bomb Squad, MCSO Major Crimes division, plus the MCSO Homeland Security and Counter Terrorism investigations unit. The powdery substance was determined to be harmless. We will use all appropriate resources to track down the person or people responsible, said Blair. If you know anything about this incident, you can call Crime Stoppers at 352-368-7867. You can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward. Powder mailed Sheriffs Office takes action after envelope is opened Pedestrian injuredA man who stepped off the median on State Road 200 at Steeplechase was critically injured Jan. 28 when he was struck by a car. Stephen R. Cote was hospitalized. The driver, an 81-year-old woman, was not injured or charged. *See sales person for details. Pictures for illustration purposes only.
