On Sunday, March 3, at about 2 p.m., a deputy responded to 7771 S.W. 117th St. Road after a caller described an apparent homicide scene. At the home, according to the report, the deputy and a partner entered the home and found Bronwyn Wilcox, who would have been 81 years old on Wednesday, March 6, lying on her back on the floor between the kitchen and eat-in dining area. In the kitchen, the deputies found several notes on the counter advising to cancel insurance, etc. and several phone numbers for the next of kin. Deputies then went through the master bedroom and into the master bath, and found Harold M. Wilcox, 80, in the walk-in shower, fully clothed. There was a shotgun and blood in the shower, and the report says he apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He also found other personal papers in front of the shower. Neighbors said they had spoken with the victims who said they were going to church, as did the neighbors. When the neighbors returned and opened their garage door, they found a box that wasnt there before. There was a note and a key to the Wilcox home. The neighbors went immediately to the Wilcox home and found the bodies.

When you work and pay Social Security taxes, you earn credits toward Social Security benefits. If you were born in 1929 or later, you need 40 credits (10 years of work) to qualify for retirement benefits. We determine the amount of your benefit by both how long you work and how much you earn. The higher your lifetime earnings, the higher your monthly benefits. If there were some years when you did not work or had low earnings, your benefit amount may be lower than if you had worked steadily or earned more. Your age at the time you start receiving Social Security retirement makes a difference in your benefit amount. The full retirement age (the age at which 100 percent of retirement benefits are payable) has been gradually rising from age 65 to age 67. You can take early retirement as early as age 62, but if you start collecting benefits before you reach your full retirement age, your monthly payment will be reduced. You can find out what your full retirement age is by referring to the convenient chart at www.socialsecurity.gov/retire2/retirechart.htm Just as you can choose an early retirement and get a reduced payment, you also can choose to keep working beyond your full retirement age to take advantage of a larger payment. Generally, your benefit will increase automatically by eight percent each year from the time you reach your full retirement age until you start receiving your benefits or until you reach age 70. The decision of when to retire is personal and depends on a number of factors. To help you weigh the factors, we suggest you read our online fact sheet, When To Start Receiving Retirement Benefits, available at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10147.html. You may want to consider your options by using our Retirement Estimator to get instant, personalized estimates of future benefits. You can plug in different retirement ages and scenarios to help you make a more informed retirement decision. Try it out at www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator. You also can set up an online my Social Security account. You can use your my Social Security account to obtain a copy of your Social Security Statement to check your earnings record and see future estimates of the retirement, disability, and survivor benefits you and your family may receive. Visit www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount. When you decide to retire, the easiest and most convenient way to do it is right from the comfort of your home or office computer. Go to www.socialsecurity.gov where you can apply for retirement benefits in as little as 15 minutes.

COOL I D GE By Am ity Shlaes In re-examining our obscure 30th president, Calvin Coolidge, historian Amity Shlaes hopes to illuminate the country we once were. She begins by tracing Coolidges improbable rise from a tiny New England town. As a youth he was so unpopular at Amherst that he was shut out of fraternities and made few friends. But his father had taught Calvin perseverance and when doors closed to him he found others to open. Politics was one of those doors. The flint-faced VermonterSilent Cal as he came to be knownbrought tough fiscal discipline to his presidency. Shlaes sees him as a rare kind of hero, a minimalist president, and economic general of budgeting and tax cuts. This new biography is firmly anchored in the 1920s for the most part with the entrance of Franklin Delano Roosevelts first term as its terminus. Ironically, at the start of his political career Coolidge came under the sway of the Republican progressive movement, personified with flair by Theodore Roosevelt. In the state senate, he voted for womens suffrage, a state income tax, minimum wage for female workers, and salary increases for teachers. But then Coolidge began not only to question progressivism but also to find the radicalism of union leaders alarming. In 1919 as Massachusetts governor Coolidge gained widespread fame when Boston police went on strike, unleashing looting, property damage and street violence. A fearful nation awaited Coolidges reaction. Most expected conciliatory treatment of the policemen. Instead, he stared down the strikers and brought in the National Guard. Knowing such a move would cost him the Irish vote he nevertheless believed that there is no right to strike against public safety. His gutsy response would earn him a mere footnote in history. Yet when Ronald Reagan stared down the air traffickers in the 1980s he became a hero for all time. The Coolidge years were a time of both joy and sadness. With his lovely, welleducated wife Grace by his side, Coolidge was able to enjoy many of the perks of the White House. But the sudden death of his son Calvin Jr. from a blister that turned into blood poisoning brought insurmountable grief. When pressed to serve a third term, Coolidge reflected on the high price in health his predecessors had paid and to the surprise of his party, he declined. Shlaes believes the Coolidge legacy of fiscal restraint is timely as the nation faces a looming economic crisis brought about in large measure by mounting public debt.

Wednesday, March 20 Interfaith women to meet Empathy is it hardwired in humans or can it be developed? Rev. Peggy Hostetler, newly elected president of The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County, will examine the capacity of pre-schoolers to develop empathy for others when she addresses the organizations next potluck luncheon womens gathering which will take place Wednesday, March 20 at the Unity Church, 101 Cedar Road, in Silver Springs Shores. Doors at the church will open at 11:30 a.m. with the formal program concluding at 1 p.m. Rev. Hostetler has selected her topic as a facet of The Charter for Compassion, the organizations theme for 2013. Development of this document was spearheaded by Karen Armstrong and other leading thinkers in an effort to activate adherence to the Golden Rule in cultures and religions throughout the world. The pastor of the Oakbrook Center for Spiritual Living wants to encourage children to become altruistic adults who buy shoes for a homeless man on a freezing night, or rush to lift a commuter pushed onto the subway tracks as the train nears rather than those whose callous behavior leads to the bullying and disdain for the other which afflicts so many raised only to be princes and princesses of all they survey. Betty Jean Wochinski, secretary-treasurer of The Interfaith Alliance and member of the Unity Church, is hostess for the event. Please telephone her at 352680-9296 or visit www.TIAMarionCountyFL.org to RSVP or for more information.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 39 To help encourage the nearly 40 percent of at-risk Americans who are not getting screened for colon cancer to take this lifesaving step, Endoscopy Center of Ocala is participating in National Colon Cancer Screening Day, a national effort to screen 2,013 firsttime patients for colon cancer on Friday, March 8. When detected in the earliest stage, colon cancer patients have a 90 percent chance of survival. With March being both the pinnacle of the college basketball season as well as Colon Cancer Awareness Month, StopColonCancerNow.com hopes to encourage people to rally around their health in the same way that they rally around their favorite team. As part of March Gladness, National Screening Day is the day to get in the game and complete or schedule a colonoscopy. During its inaugural year in 2012, the National Screening Day goal of screening 1,000 firsttime patients was exceeded. StopColonCancerNow.com has set the bar even higher this year, making it the perfect time for those 50 years of age and older (45 years of age and older for African Americans) or for those who have a family history of polyps or colon cancer, to make that appointment. March Gladness is the peace of mind that comes with taking care of your health, and a colonoscopy is one of the most important steps an individual 50 or over can take, said Dr. Olejeme of Endoscopy Center of Ocala. Too many patients are putting off making this appointment. By designating a national screening day, l hope to raise awareness among first-time patients and break down the barriers associated with the procedure. Its an easy call to make and the message is clear; a colonoscopy can save your life.

handwriting as used by those creating records on documents such as the census and ship passenger lists. Cursive lettering has changed over the years and we should make notes of the most used words. Bill Balch will bring us up to date on the clubs blog. Following these presentations we will have refreshments and a 50/50 drawing. Please keep in mind that programs are subject to change. Regular meetings are at 9:30 a.m. on the third Friday of each month in the card room; however, as a reminder, in March, June, September and December meetings are held at 11 a.m. in the Orchid Club auditorium. Announcements of club activities are on channel 12 and at www.orgenealogy.blogspo t.com. Oak Run residents may read the blog but only club members can post comments, questions, or answer comments to questions. Oak Run residents interested in researching ancestors are welcome to attend meetings and to join us. The annual membership is $6 and entitles you to get help in finding the missing links in your family tree, to meet others with the genealogy addiction, and to attend the holiday party. New England ClubThe New England Club of Oak Run will meet on March 21 at the Orchid Club, with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. and short agenda beginning at 5:45 p.m. A dinner will follow catered by Royal Oaks with a choice of ham with raisin sauce or chicken marsala, salad, vegetables and dessert.

Performing Arts CompanyAs you read this article there are only 11 days until showtime for the Performing Arts Companys play, The Odd Couple, and if you havent got your tickets for this rip snorting funny show, call Linda Noel at 352-873-9908. Rehearsals are going smooth as silk and Oak Runners are in for a real treat when they plant themselves in the Palm Grove Club. From the opening remarks by Lou Winkleman, to the set decorations by Dee Gragg, to the lobby decorations by Shari and Hal Weber, we think you will be impressed. We welcome Jean Muncy back to Oak Run where in previous years she was the musical director for such plays as Bedside Manor and Magnolia. Jean and Paul left the community a few years ago but longed to return and we are happy to have them back in the fold. This year Jean is getting her feet wet by becoming our stage prompter. For those of you who are unaware this could happen, (it does) Jeans job will be to prompt the cast with a line when memory fails them. When you consider the fact that most of our cast is in their 70s, and one in the 80s, you gotta remember we are in the forgetting mode!! Patty Waddel as our director and Diana Schmidt as her assistant have done a yeoman job of molding our cast into a real tight knit of performers. Kudos for their efforts. Doors for the dinner theatre open at 4:45 p.m., with dinner at 5:15 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday shows doors open at 6:15 p.m. and on Sunday at 2:15 p.m. Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door prior to each performance. Come join the fun!! Oak Run Tennis ClubSpring is in the air. You may not be aware what has been happening at the Oak Run Tennis Club. Jim Newsheller has volunteered to become the next tennis club facilitator, We thank Joe Husjar for the improvements to the courts over the past many years. He will still be involved and we can count on him for his continued support. Through the generosity of a few dedicated players, the tennis club has been able to purchase a new ball machine. For those who want individual training on using the machine please sign up at the courts. Starting on Thursday, March 7, tennis instruction for beginners will be given between 2 and 4 p.m. for five consecutive weeks. Efforts are being made to set up a badminton court at the padrac facilities. This is a fast game and fun at the same time. The Oak Run Tennis Club every year asks that every player contribute the small amount of $5, which goes toward various improvements around the tennis courts. Unfortunately this year contributions have been coming in very slowly. If you have not yet contributed please give the money to Jim Newsheller or Joe Huszar. This is a small amount for the privilege of playing tennis. Tally tennis is in full swing on Tuesday and Thursday at 2 p.m. All levels of players are welcome. We have had some guests that have been good players, so come down for an afternoon of fun tennis. ORWGAHere is the list of winners for the Feb. 21 Low Net Tournament. Names are listed in order of finFriday, March 8, 2013~ 29 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, March 8, 2013 M y high school algebra teacher, Mr. Gretsch, would periodically refocus the attention of students with an outburst of irrelevant wisdom. His favorite was to wave his arm above his head, and exclaim loudly: You know were all a little crazy! Rampage killings, such as the recent carnage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, bring to mind Mr. Gretschs suggestion that we live among many unstable people, some of whom might become harmfully aggressive at any time. The White House response to the Sandy Hook rampage was the Biden Committee recommendations, which focus mainly on gun control, as expected and requested by President Obama. For 40 years since 1971 weve been engaged in the costly and unsuccessful war on drugs, with no end in sight. The worst mess in this longest war ever was Operation Fast and Furious selling guns to smugglers in expectation of tracing the weapons to the drug cartels. The results were killing rampages in Mexico and the death of one of our own ATF officers. Efforts to keep track of thousands of weapons were futile. Apparently the lessons from six years (2005-2011) of gun walking were not learned. The Obama administration is apparently committed to trying to reduce killing rampages by keeping track of guns. We foresee another federal bureaucracy which will spend billions of dollars, add thousands of federal employees, produce tons of records about gun purchases and owners, and accomplish little if anything to prevent violence just another Washington spending compulsion. The Biden Committee did include a fuzzy but possibly more productive recommendation for a national dialogue on mental health problems related to violence. The so-called Cannibal Cop trial in New York suggests that identifying people preparing to do harm is possible, and makes more sense than cataloguing purchases and possession of guns and cartridges in hope of occasionally stumbling on a potential killer. The New York police officer referred to by the media as the Cannibal Cop is on trial for conspiring to kidnap, cook, and eat young women. His authority to carry a gun has no bearing on the case. The evidence offered by the prosecution includes kinky photos, fetish chat rooms, a trail of emails, and a file of womens names, addresses, and pictures. The dilemma for prosecutors in such cases is how far the law can be stretched to prevent harm. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that expanding government power to eavesdrop on e-mail and phone talk in search of likely future injury is too speculative. However, law enforcement agencies around the country do identify and corral sex peddlers without crossing legal limits. They also intercept many online child predators. In most cases the peculiarities of rampage killers were known or suspected by people who could have alerted a crime stopper agency if they were better informed. Rampage killings are more preventable by interception than by counting and cataloguing guns. We think focusing on weaponry is wishful thinking and dumb. T his year we had other things to write, so we didnt go through our yearly list of Super Bowl commercials that we liked. For you non-football fans, each year, because of the exposure, many national brands choose to unveil new commercials during the Super Bowl. They know that millions of people will be watching. I didnt even keep a list this year, but there is one still airing that stand out. Best liked in our household is the Budweiser ad, which kind of has a tie to the horse industry in our area. In the ad, a man raises a Clydesdale horse from youth until it is old enough to go on a truck to become a Bud Clydesdale, and he sadly says goodbye. Three years later he goes to see a parade and the Clydesdales are in it, and he looks with pride as the horse passes by. Later, as hes in his car, the horse breaks away and follows him and the two are emotionally reunited. It was one of the nicer ads to hit the airwaves. As long as were talking about commercials, there are others that are getting a little tiresome. State Farm: The young woman comes out of her apartment and sees a guy designing an accident on his phone. The woman says she heard on the Internet that State Farm doesnt have apps and they cant put anything on the Internet that isnt true. Soon her boyfriend comes to pick her up, and hes a big oaf who she thinks is a French model that she met on the Internet. He slaughters bon jour. She then gives her friend a sly smile as she walks away with her date. AT&T: The guy sits around a table with a bunch of little kids, kindergarten or first grade, and they talk about whats better. In fast or slow, one little kid wants to tape a cheetah to his grandmas back; in bigger is better a girl says a small tree house wouldnt be big enough for a TV. These ads are really annoying. Progressive: From Flo meeting some guy on a lonely road to competitors having their pants on fire because they were lying (no mas pantalones), these ads run the gamut from insulting to dumb. Sometimes you wish that advertisers would come up with something new. Do they really think theyre holding our attention with these ads? Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

F or some reason, with all the cold weather, the beginning of Daylight Saving Time comes sneaking in like a thief in the night. Nearly everyone we tell to make sure they change their clocks this coming weekend has one response: Already? Many people echo the sentiment that we feel: Just decide which way you want it, and then leave it alone all year. For various reasons, we would prefer staying on Daylight Saving Time all year. It just seems nicer to have a little daylight left after the workday. One of the arguments against Daylight Saving Time is that it means children waiting for school buses in the dark. Well, all you have to do is go out now, during standard time, and youll already see children waiting in the dark. In addition, many of us remember when we went to school and the hours were 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thats right, young people. Not everyone was raised with the first bell at 8:22 and the last bell at 2:13, or some odd times like that. It was very simple, 9 to 3, eight 45-minute periods. It was so simple a first grader could understand. If youre really concerned, just start schools one hour later when Daylight Saving Time takes effect. That means the number of children out in the dark would stay the same, and gradually dwindle as the days get longer. Energy savings? We never did buy that argument. Whats the difference whether you use extra lights in the morning or extra lights in the evening? So get ready for the time change. Spring, when the clocks move ahead, is the time when people are late for everything. Since the time changes at 2 a.m. Sunday, its usually church services that are the first to feel the brunt of the change when people show up an hour late. There will also be a lot of people doing a lot of extra yawning come Monday morning at offices all across the country. But take heart. You have plenty of time to get used to it. The clocks dont change back until Nov. 3. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY One more time, change your clocks A late review of the Super Bowl ads Wisdom means learning from your failures READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Flynn Columnist Jim Clark Editor Read the classifieds LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Bad HOA billA recently filed Florida State Senate Bill should be reviewed by every property owner in a residential community with a homeowner association (HOA). You can web search and read FL S 0596 2013Bill Text. In particular, pages 4 through 38 attempts to fix the already defective Chapter 720 that governs how HOAs must operate. Unfortunately, the proposals will not fix but instead will encourage ongoing bad and illegal behavior by developers, directors and managers. As proposed, a property owner that is not a felon and has paid up association fees may be a director. Surprisingly, any other person not owning property including an incarcerated felon may legally be a director. If required annual meetings are not held or are run illegally, the bad guys stay in office with no penalty. Astoundingly, the bill allows the developer to use any amount of votes per lot (disguised as voting interests) to outvote everyone else, not at all equal to the measly one vote you have. Required association transition from developer control to member control maybe occurs when a confusing number of lots are sold, not at an absolute time (like 5 years) from incorporation. Developers just sell some lots to their other companies or keep some lots, allowing continuation of the profitable dictatorship forever. Finally, ambiguity remains over which HOAs are controlled by Chapter 720. The statute must include every Not-for-Profit HOA in Florida. Read the Bill, write your Senator. Help fix the problems. Don Kronen, Ocala The Constitution misinterpreted I guess there are people who are interpreting the Constitution as well as the Bill of Rights, and their civics classes, are not well informed. They apparently do, as many people do when interpreting other writings, just pick out what they want, and give their own take on it. I would guess, anyone under the age of 50, has not been taught civics in school as it was taught in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. When I was in high school, we were required to take civics and in college also required to take Western Civilization. Now, studying civics was about as interesting as watching grass grow. But, when I look back, it was one of the most interesting, and important courses I was required to study. Now that I'm a senior citizen, with more time on my hands to do whatever I choose, I've been studying the Constitution, and how it's being misinterpreted so satisfy individuals and groups, to their advantage.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 28 ~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com If you delve into the Constitution, as I've done, and I'm only going to address only two points here, you will find the men who wrote it were probably self serving and more concerned with a revolution and not qualified to write an intellectual piece. It was as though, in their Revolution against the King and England, they tried to cover about everything they could come up with since time began. While we give our forefathers a great deal of credit for the Revolutionary War and while many call it the war for independence, it was The Revolutionary War. I had a fifth great grandfather, Captain Charles Anderson, of the 11th Regiment, spend the winter of 1777-1778 with General George Washington at Valley Forge. Oh yes, Valley Forge was an encampment not a battle. Check with the Daughters of the America Revolution, (DAR), of which I can be a member, due to my ancestry, and you'll find it was, The Revolutionary War. Let's look at two points in the Constitution, when it was ratified on November 3, 1797, and in particular, I want to address only these two parts and they are stated verbatim. The Preamble to the Constitution: There are VII Original Articles, of the Constitution: The ensuing Amendments were also referred to as Articles of Amendment. From Article I, of the VII original Articles: Article I, Section 8, No. 12, states, To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of money to that Use shall be for no longer than two Years. It's interesting we've been at war for 10 years, starting in Iraq and Afghanistan, and we're still in Afghanistan. Then add to that, we're technically still at war with North Korea, as no treaty has been signed after 62 years, and there are still troops stationed in South Korea. Well, so much for a so a called police action Article I, Section 8, No. 13, states, To provide and maintain a Navy. In these first VII Original Articles, there is no mention of weaponry/guns. Then we come to Amendments to the Constitution, which follows, the Letter of Transmittal to the President of Congress, which by the way, paved the way for the ensuing Amendments (articles), the first 10 becoming, the Bill of Rights. Again, at this time, I'm only addressing the Second amendment/article. Amendment II, (an article), states: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. In essence, to maintain the security of a new nation, it was OK for people to bear arms for the security of a free state, through a well regulated militia. But now that we are not threatened with invasion of our nation/country, and have no militia, plus don't need arms to protect our nation/country/free state, we are using those weapons on each other. Interpret it any way you care to, but that's exactly what's happening. Under the false guise of needing guns, the NRA is trying to ram guns down our throats, and worse, even though Amendment II clearly refers to the need through a well regulated militia. Maybe the NRA still feels, the British are Coming, the British are Coming. What nonsense. Bill Ford Oak RunGovernment gotchaIf they cannot get it one way, they will get it another way, government bureaucrats that is: elected, and hired. This why it is worth spending time becoming government watchdogs. You might just spot something that grabs your attention, and do something about it. At least speak out, and voice your displeasure. There is always a small cadre of citizens who fancy themselves as possessed with bright ideas, and want the rest of us to pay for them. No matter how useless, wasteful, repetitive, or silly these ideas may be. Just such an incident occurred at the last County Commission meeting. (the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, they have printed agendas available, if you decide to attend). One particular item has been postponed until March 19. There will be a planning session to discuss the matter. This is where citizens can have input. What is it that has me doing loop-deloops? How about a 6 percent county tax on fuel? Does that grab your attention? Not certain how fuel is defined. Gasoline, or heating fuel? Surprise, surprise. Do you want or need a 6 percent tax on anything, especially on a necessity like fuel of any kind?? The time to gripe is before, not after. We sit here like dummies, we are treated like dummies. This why it is imperative we monitor our government at every level, local, state and federal. Having citizens attend meetings does make a difference. There are other bright ideas that have been noted, since our attendance at meetings. I cannot afford any more bright ideas. If we do not care, why should the bureaucrats care?. They can just keep taxing, and taxing merrily along. No one cares, to watch them. D.I. Larson Ocala, Fl Too much in benefitsLast month, the Senate Budget Committee reported that in fiscal year 2011, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. household below the poverty line received $168 a day in government support. Whats the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day. To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $25 an hour. Are we all crazy or what? Pam Lee Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 BY RICH LOWRY Special to the Citizen Some guys have it, and some don't. I'm referring to that special quality that makes powerful institutions want to throw fistfuls of dollars at them in senseless acts of high-priced beneficence. Jack Lew has it like nobody's business. You might think the bespectacled treasury secretary nominee is just another brainy budget wonk and miss the animal magnetism that makes his employers lose all sense of financial proportion around him, paying him astronomical sums, forgiving his loans and granting him generous golden parachutes. Yes, Jack Lew is a rare talent -at the art of getting paid. He left the Clinton administration, where he served as director of the Office of Management and Budget, for what turned out to be the extremely lucrative field of nonprofit education. At New York University, he made more than $800,000 in 2002. According to his W-2, examined by staff on Capitol Hill, he made $1.2 million in total compensation in 2006. Even for Jack Lew, housing in New York City can be expensive. Not to worry. New York University provided GUEST COMMENTARY Treasury secretary nominee Jack Lew has some powerful friends him a loan for housing. The trouble with loans is that they have to be paid back. Not to worry. All is forgiven if you are Jack Lew, especially your loans. According to Lew, the university forgave the loan of some $1.4 million "in equal installments over five years." Upon leaving NYU, Lew received what he describes as "a one-time severance payment upon my departure." He wasn't fired, usually the occasion for severances. He simply left and got paid for the act of leaving. Hey, that's Jack Lew -he gets paid when he stays and gets paid when he goes. He went to Citigroup, which NYU had made its primary private lender for student loans in exchange for a cut of those loans. (Coincidences happen to everyone, including Jack Lew.) In 2008, as the bank nearly blew up and laid off one-seventh of its employees, Lew ran its disastrous Alternative Investments unit -and got paid $1.1 million. The bank had to be bailed out by the federal government, but it couldn't stop paying Jack Lew. The journalist Jonathan Weil of Bloomberg has unearthed Lew's contract at Citi. It said, reasonably enough, that he wouldn't get his "guaranteed incentive and retention award" if he left the company. It made an exception, though, if Lew left to get "a full-time high level position with the United States government or regulatory body." Jack Lew being Jack Lew, he left Citi to become deputy secretary of state, on his way to resuming his duties at OMB, then becoming the chief of staff to the president, and now secretary of the treasury. And, of course, he got paid. The cynics talk of crony capitalism. The scoffers hint of special favors for the politically connected. The good-government types worry about the unseemliness of a too-big-to-fail Wall Street bank giving one of its executives an incentive to become a high-ranking government official. Maybe they should give it a rest and simply stand back and marvel at the moneymaking machine that is Jack Lew. Lesser mortals criticize and cavil. He gets paid.

filled journey. The truck was allowed to stop only for gas and food while armed security guards and the museum curator escorted them on the entire trip. The Anderson Trucking Company used to put out a calendar every year but rather than hire professional photographers, they asked their drivers to contribute the photos. Frank and Sarah submitted many winning photographs which earned them bonuses. When retirement time came for the two, they had seen enough snow and ice in their lives so retirement could only be in Florida. Sarahs only requirement was that it had to be a home in a neighborhood. Country life was not for the people oriented Sarah. On advice from a friend in Vermont, she picked out two neighborhoods, On Top of the World and Cherrywood. Once she saw all the activities here at Cherrywood, her mind was made up. While they are relatively new to our community, Sarah and Frank have met many new friends and take pride in the various clubs and associations they belong to. Frank has a keen interest in billiards and foosball. He also enjoys walking; playing jeopardy and chess. He and Sarah have even been out to play Trivia here at Cherrywood. Sarah is occupied with caring for her mom who lives in Bronson. Sarah counts it as a privilege and honor to be able to look after her mother, taking her treats and making sure she gets the little things in life that are so important. When shes not at her moms, Sarah spends time at Bingo; the Accordion Club; the swimming pool; leads the Cribbage Club and plays Hand and Foot (A card game). She also loves to cook and quilting. Both Frank and Sarah are ardent Oakland Raider fans. Without going into detail, Sarah and Frank have both had to overcome some great difficulties in life. Their faith and love for each other has seen them through these hard times and continues to give them strength. To meet them you would never know they had a care in the world because of Sarahs beaming smile and Franks warm hand shake. They and those like them, make Cherrywood the terrific community that it is. From your reporterThis week, as most weeks, I am so very proud of my community. The Veterans Club spaghetti dinner fund raiser is sold out; Dick Richards of our Accordion Club had a near capacity crowd to enjoy the music; and our fantastic volunteers won a trophy raising funds for the Marion County Kidney Foundation. What an amazing bunch of people I have the privilege to associate with and have as friends. Thank you to each and every one of you.

Love kids? Our Reading Volunteer Group is looking for enthusiastic people to visit two of our local elementary schools and read to the lower grades. It would only take up about an hour of your time, six mornings a year each (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) at Sunrise and Marion Oaks Elementary schools. The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you are escorted by two of the children to their classroom. Having the children around you engaged and anticipating the next page, discussing the book, sharing the pictures, and just being with them is a truly rewarding experience. Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures in the wonderful world of books.

Softball The excitement is truly in the air as the league begins to tighten up. Coming to life are the Overholser and Great Clips teams with four wins and three losses. The teams are beginning to meld together as they are slowly beginning to creep up on the other teams. Clutch plays and good hitting have helped them to come from behind and losses by the other teams have changed the dynamics of the league. The Cebert Wealth team has been struggling since the loss of one of their key players, with just 1 win and 6 losses. They are hoping that an addition to their team will help to generate some wins. Wise Way still holds on to first place, but has to start building some more wins, as they have only generated two wins and five losses since our last report. The Dr Dunn and Tee Pee Tire teams have made an impressive run at getting closer to the top with their five wins and two losses since last month. Its a toss-up now as to what team will be in first place by next month, with all gearing up to make a move. Any losing or winning streak is going to make a difference.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Unlike Sarah, Frank was born overseas in Heidelberg, Germany. He was an army brat whose father was serving with the U.S. Army. His mom was born in Worms, Germany, and he has a brother, Jon, who lives in Nashville, Tennessee. Because of his parents, Frank moved around a lot but their home town was where his father grew up in Terra Haute, Indiana. After graduating from high school he attended Ivy Technical College to study electronics. This was not enough action for the young man so he tried a different career path. For six years, Frank promoted Country/Western shows all over Texas. Quite a change of pace from electronics but it was exciting, if grueling, work. Traveling all over the state Frank got to meet many people both stars and ordinary folks. He enjoyed them all. When his contract expired up he left the business. Being used to traveling Frank found his calling in the trucking business. He became a long haul trucker with Anderson Trucking Service in Saint Cloud, Minnesota, in 1988. That move would change his life in more ways than one. Following her graduation from Montpelier High School Sarah enlisted in the U.S. Army. She trained at Fort Sam Houston in Texas and became a Medical Specialist. She would serve at Fort Ord, California, and at Fort McClellan, Alabama, during her tour of service. While serving in the Army, Sarah met and married her first husband. They moved to California and while in that state, they opened a day care facility and took in foster children. She proudly states that they cared for 261 foster youngsters during that time. Sarah has one son from that marriage, James, who is a graphic artist in Monterey, California. She beams with pride as she talks about him and mentioned that he is also a member of MENSA; a prestigious group of individuals with a superior IQ. Frank also has a son, Franklin Junior. He has two daughters, Alyssa who is eight and Addrionne who is 6. They live in Indianapolis, Indiana, and are the apple of Frank and Sarahs eye. Following the break up of her marriage, Sarah returned to the familiar surroundings of Vermont where she found work at Blue Cross/Blue Shield. She worked originally as a claims adjuster but ended her career in the organ transplant department disbursing and processing payments for live organ recipients. In 1991 she was out in her garden when she heard her CB radio going off. Sarahs Dad was a CB buff and she has always had a base station in her home. On the radio, a trucker was asking directions to a place near her home. She picked up the microphone and a relationship began. The directions were complicated and the construction zones plentiful, so Sarah offered to meet him and lead him down the right roads. She hopped in her car and met him in a nearby parking lot. After they arrived at their destination, Frank was not shy and jumped in Sarahs car. He took her to dinner to thank her for her help. Later they would watch the fireworks on the lawn of the Montpelier State House. The fireworks have never ended. Frank was based out of Jacksonville while working with the trucking company basically because his parents had retired there. After a little persuasion and hundreds of dollars in phone bills, Sarah took a course at the National Truck Training Company. It was then that the two became a team not only for life but in business also. During his career Frank and Sarah hauled anchor bolts to Oakland, Californias Coliseum; the engine for the Space Shuttle from Cape Kennedy to Rocketdyne Corp. in Canaga Park, California; and the most sensitive load of all; artifacts from the Mayan Inca era. Taking the priceless treasures of the Mayan/Inca collection from Washington, D.C., to Mexico City was a pressure CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 24 Frank and Sarah Blair.

I am not sure where that came from, and I am not exactly sure what it means. If I cannot eat my cake, whose cake can I eat? I think it all depends on how you present the cake in question. One of the things most important and strongly supervised in our home by the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has to do with the presence of such food items as cake. At times, I think she is overly obsessed with some diet phenomenon. I, on the other hand, am rather open to the delicacies of such dietary niceties as cakes. Like I said, there is a way to get around everything. My problem is, how can I have my cake and eat it too? Recently my wife took a weeks vacation to New York to visit her relatives. While she was away for that week, I was in charge of our little homestead. Whatever happened, happened because I did it. Whatever didnt happen, didnt happen because I didnt do it. I have a simple rule in life. Do what you like and have fun doing it. My wifes rule in life is, do exactly what I tell you and do it now! When she is not present in the home, especially for a weeklong duration, I am the one supervising the rules. And so, during that week my rules ruled. I will not say I had fun during that week, because I would not want that kind of information to be leaked to certain people. All during the week, I ate every kind of delicacy I could wrap my lips around. Not one shred of salad could be found in the house during the whole week. Salads were outlawed, desserts were in order. On the day my wife was scheduled to return from her New York trip, I had to go to school and pick up one of my granddaughters. She was sick and nobody else was available but Yours Truly. When I picked her up she did not look quite as sick as I would have figured, Heres how you can have your cake and eat it too but who am I to question the wisdom of a schoolteacher. We spent the entire afternoon eating lunch at McDonalds, shopping at the Dollar Tree and just having a rip snorting time of our life. If this is sick, may I be sick every day of my life. As a supposedly sick 7-year-old, her energy ran her grandpa firmly into the ground. I am not sure I ever had that much energy. It was great to spend an afternoon with one of my granddaughters. Usually this is the privilege of grandma and so I felt honored to take her place for one afternoon. Toward the end of the afternoon my granddaughter said, When will grandma get home? I calculated it and responded by telling her that according to the schedule she should be getting home around 6 oclock. As that information saturated her little brain she then said, Well, can we have a surprise party for grandma? Off to the store we went. Things needed for purchasing to put together the surprise welcome home party for grandma. There were cards to purchase. I say cards because she could not choose between two cards and so we decided, or rather I should say, she decided to get both of them. Women start early in life, dont they. There were ribbons to buy and then she saw a nice bouquet of roses. We bought the roses. All this time I was thinking about a special project I had in mind. That special project took the form of a special welcome home cake. I took my granddaughter over to the case where all of the cakes were displayed and invited her to pick out one that suited her. As far as I am concerned, a cake is a cake and my favorite cake is the one I am eating at the time. She picked out a beautiful cake and we went to the checkout counter and paid for our wonderful purchases. Now it was home to set up our little welcome home party for grandma. My granddaughter spent quite a bit of time drawing pictures on the inside of the cards while I paid special attention to how to display the cake. I was sure that grandma, who usually does not approve of cake coming into our home, would not disapprove of this cake if we presented it right. When grandma walked in the door, we yelled Surprise and boy was she surprised. Then came the time for us to present the cake and eat it as well. Whoever says you cant have your cake and eat it too needs to sit down and talk with me. I have found a wonderful way of having my cake and eating it too without the sneering disapproval of You Know Who. I like what the Bible says. There has no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it (1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV). God always provides the cake and then invites us to eat it with Him. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Born Sarah Leslie, one of the founders of Hardwick is an ancestor of Sarahs and she can trace her lineage back to the one of the four families who first incorporated the town.

Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish CenterThe Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish Center of Marion County and The Villages plans to distribute handmade Shmurah Matzah this year to help local Jews participate in the upcoming Passover holiday. The Matzahs will be distributed to doctors, lawyers members of the community or upon request. Passover, celebrated this year from Monday Night, March 25, until after nightfall on Tuesday, April 2, the exodus of the Jews from Egypt some 3,000 years ago. Directed by God to leave Egypt hastily, the people of Israel could not wait for their dough to rise, and thus ate unleavened crackers called Matzah. To celebrate the Exodus, Jews gather for festive Seder dinners on March 25 and 26, and abstain from eating, or even owning or benefiting from, any leavened substance such as bread and pasta. Shmurah literally means watched Matzah. From the moment the wheat is harvested, until the time it is baked, the ingredients are carefully watched to ensure that they do not come into contact with anything that could cause them to become leavened, which would be prohibited on Passover. Shmurah Matzahs are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, similar to the Matzahs that the Jews ate when leaving Friday, March 8, 2013~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Religion SEE RELIGION PAGE16 D awn was just breaking and the air was cold and chill but the clubhouse at Cherrywood was bustling with excitement. By ones; twos and more, people began to filter in. All were wearing coats; gloves; hats and other winter gear to keep the cold out but there were smiles on their faces and a spring in their step. Saturday was the Marion County Kidney Foundations Kicking Kidney Disease 5K run and our folks were ready for it. More than triple the number of participants from the year before took part. Holly Bragdon, coordinator for the event had done a magnificent job of motivating and mobilizing everyone. Skip Smith and his wife Trude provided the inspiration for this years run and in their honor, our team was registered as the Cherrywood Skippers. A total of 37 people signed up to take part in the event with several others donating to the cause. The Marion County Kidney Foundation is a totally volunteer organization that supports services and education for the citizens of our county. Their annual 5K run/walk held at the Florida Greenway Trailhead is their main fund raising event. Sponsors included but were not limited too; Winn Dixie; TD Bank; Marion County Hospice; and Taylor College. After arriving at the race site, the participants enjoyed free coffee and pastries provided by Dunkin Donuts. Pictures were taken and registration numbers pinned on and then it was time to begin. With the blast of a siren, the runners and walkers were off. When it was over, Joe Gignac had taken 3rd place and Dick Francis had won 4th place. Total time for all of our people ranged from 33 minutes to one hour and fifteen minutes in an age group that included 33 years of age to 81 years old. On top of that, the Skippers won the Team Spirit Trophy which will be displayed proudly in our clubhouse. People may not realize the sacrifice of our participants to do what they did. Getting up before daylight in cold weather; driving a half hour to be out in the weather and then walking or running the course; all of that takes a lot of guts and a huge heart. That is the caliber of people we have here in our community. This years participants were, event coordinator and team captain Holly Bragdon; David Bragdon; Mary Hamblen: Gail Lingham; Marty Dean; Eve Houghtaling; T.T.; Ed and Michele Maculewicz; Erica Hogan; Kathy Robson; Bonnie Clark; Richard Frances; Rich Hurley; Ruth Hurley; Jenny Arturi; Shirley Mercer; Joan Siegel; Marilyn Wood; Louise Tilly; Aprile Guglielmi; Diane DAlessandro; Sandee Spencer; Donna James; Mick James; Joe Gignac; Pia Dean; Sandra Brotherhood; Bill Brotherhood (with a cane); Frank Blair; and Ann Bardack.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Egypt over 3,000 years ago. It is therefore appropriate to use Shmurah Matzah during Passover, at least on each of the two Seder nights. The local effort is part of a global campaign by the Chabad-Lubavitch movement to increase holiday awareness and participation. According to estimates provided by Lubavitch World Headquarters in Brooklyn, New York, over four million hand-baked Shmurah Matzahs will be distributed by the Chabad movement this year. In addition, millions of Passover guides in 17 languages will educate people on the meaning and practices of the holiday. The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, taught that no solitary Jewish person ought to be left out. Every Jew, regardless of their background, affiliation or even location, should have access to the provisions they need to celebrate Passover, said Rabbi Yossi Hecht from the Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish Center of Marion County. There are Chabad emissaries across the globe are working feverishly to provide Jews with Matzahs, holiday guides and much more, To learn more about Passover, make reservations for the seder, or for further information, please contact Rabbi Yossi or Chanie at 352-291-2218 or email info@jewishmarion.org or visit our website at www.JewishMarion.org.Friendship Baptist ChurchDont forget to set your clocks ahead one hour as Daylight Saving Time begins.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Whats new at Spruce Creek? Holy smokes! We are just tearing it up these days!!! Between the new band forming for the jam session in April, and the new players for shuffleboard, the joint is just jumpin! Upcoming we are having our St. Patricks Day dinner and party. It will be held on March 23 at 6 p.m. Of course we will be having corned beef. The entertainment will be by George. Tickets will be sold on March 13 and 14 at 1 p.m. in the clubhouse. Thanks to our welcoming invitation, shuffle board is increasing in numbers, even in this cold weather. Crafts One of our ongoing clubs in the clubhouse is our craft making pow wow. The ladies (and men) get together on Wednesdays at 9 a.m. Now if you are NOT crafty, (like me), there is hope for you. Marlene Dorner (352-861-8623) says even a kid could do a lot of the items they are working on. That does include all of us. Currently, they are working on St. Patricks wreath made from thin foam, and for Easter they are making door knob hangers, and an egg wreath. Sounds like fun, doesnt it? Marlene says that the group of crafter is a happy bunch that enjoy the company of others and good conversation. They welcome new members with open arms, and often you can bring an item you are working on to the club, as well. I say, showing off feels good once in a while. Ping pong Okay, so whats wrong with this picture? Beautiful ping pong tables, and only a few people to play? Ben Medolla tells us that ping pong is great exercise, not very demanding, and all levels of players are welcome. That makes me want to play! So heres the challenge. Call Ben at 352-873-2919, set up a time to play, and Ill come and play too. But just be ready to be whopped, because ping pong is my specialty! Everyone is welcome, there are no pros allowed, and its just for fun. Dont worry, I wont tell anybody that you got whopped by a girl, either.Bingo What a surprise I had when I spoke with Pauline Shannon about Bingo! Did you know the jackpot is $250! YIKES! I am so there! It is played on Tuesday nights at the clubhouse. The early bird time is 6:30, and the regular games start at 6:45. To play all evening it is only $8! All the money that is taken in, is given back to the players minus just 10 percent. That sounds like a good deal to me. Pauline says that Bingo is fun, you can socialize, and it sure feels great when you win! Besides, the jackpots have been terrific! During the middle of the games, there is an intermission when you can purchase homemade cakes, pies, and drinks. They play on average 25 games and it stops at 9. It is open to the public, and all ages are welcome. You may call Pauline for more information at 352-854-7578. In My Opinion The weather will be warming up soon, so it will be time to get out and barbecue and play out in the sunshine. That makes it a perfect time to meet and greet any newcomers to your area of the community, or make the acquaintance of someone youd like to meet. We all love our community, and in order to make it the inviting and close knit place it should be, we need to reach out to our friends and neighbors. Drop off a meal to someone that is elderly, say hi, and smile at those you pass on the street. Wave as you drive by a walker. Try it soon, it feels really good when you do!Ann Brennan can be reached at nickevan7@hotmail.com or at 352-342-9466. St. Patricks Day dinner and party scheduled Spruce Creek North Ann Brennan Hospice seeks singers Hospice of Marion County invites you to consider a unique volunteer service.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com T he worlds largest motorcycle event, Daytona Bike Week, begins today at Daytona Beach with motorcycle races at the Speedway, numerous bike shows, concerts, and contests of all kinds. Ending on March 17, the week is one wild show of motorcyclists antics and their motorcycles. Todays Pun Alley takes the cycle path to Daytona for some two-wheeled fun. The heart of the matterA mechanic was removing a cylinder head from a motorcycles motor when a heart surgeon came into his shop. The mechanic shouted, Hey Doc can I ask you a question? The famous surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic. The mechanic said, So Doc, look at this engine. I also can open hearts, take valves out, fix them, put in new parts and when I finish this will work just like a new one. So how come I get paid a pittance and you get the really big money, when you and I are basically doing the same work? The surgeon smiled and said to the mechanic, Try doing it with the engine running. Fast oneA motorcycle enthusiast complained that he couldnt decide whether to buy a bike with high top speed and poor acceleration, or one with lots of torque and fast acceleration, but a poor top speed. Eventually he decided on the second one, because it cost a lot less. After all, torque is cheap.Keep it upA young man walked into our insurance office to purchase coverage for his new motorcycle. Only one question confused him. Do you have a lien holder on the vehicle? Ive got a kick stand, the prospect replied. Is that the same thing?

A receipt?An Indian storyThe old Indian chief called for the two bravest warriors in the tribe and said, Running Buffalo, Falling Rocks, you go and seek buffalo skins. Whichever of you returns with the most skins will become my right hand man and will be the next chief. A month later, Running Buffalo came back with nearly a hundred pelts. Sadly, Falling Rocks never returned. The tribe organized a search and looked everywhere, but they couldnt find the missing brave anywhere. Today, as you drive through the West, you can see the evidence of the love and devotion the tribe had for this lost warrior. Throughout the highways, on interstates and side roads, you can still see their signs that say, Watch for Falling Rocks.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com T he worlds largest motorcycle event, Daytona Bike Week, begins today at Daytona Beach with motorcycle races at the Speedway, numerous bike shows, concerts, and contests of all kinds. Ending on March 17, the week is one wild show of motorcyclists antics and their motorcycles. Todays Pun Alley takes the cycle path to Daytona for some two-wheeled fun. The heart of the matterA mechanic was removing a cylinder head from a motorcycles motor when a heart surgeon came into his shop. The mechanic shouted, Hey Doc can I ask you a question? The famous surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic. The mechanic said, So Doc, look at this engine. I also can open hearts, take valves out, fix them, put in new parts and when I finish this will work just like a new one. So how come I get paid a pittance and you get the really big money, when you and I are basically doing the same work? The surgeon smiled and said to the mechanic, Try doing it with the engine running. Fast oneA motorcycle enthusiast complained that he couldnt decide whether to buy a bike with high top speed and poor acceleration, or one with lots of torque and fast acceleration, but a poor top speed. Eventually he decided on the second one, because it cost a lot less. After all, torque is cheap.Keep it upA young man walked into our insurance office to purchase coverage for his new motorcycle. Only one question confused him. Do you have a lien holder on the vehicle? Ive got a kick stand, the prospect replied. Is that the same thing?

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Whats new at Spruce Creek? Holy smokes! We are just tearing it up these days!!! Between the new band forming for the jam session in April, and the new players for shuffleboard, the joint is just jumpin! Upcoming we are having our St. Patricks Day dinner and party. It will be held on March 23 at 6 p.m. Of course we will be having corned beef. The entertainment will be by George. Tickets will be sold on March 13 and 14 at 1 p.m. in the clubhouse. Thanks to our welcoming invitation, shuffle board is increasing in numbers, even in this cold weather. Crafts One of our ongoing clubs in the clubhouse is our craft making pow wow. The ladies (and men) get together on Wednesdays at 9 a.m. Now if you are NOT crafty, (like me), there is hope for you. Marlene Dorner (352-861-8623) says even a kid could do a lot of the items they are working on. That does include all of us. Currently, they are working on St. Patricks wreath made from thin foam, and for Easter they are making door knob hangers, and an egg wreath. Sounds like fun, doesnt it? Marlene says that the group of crafter is a happy bunch that enjoy the company of others and good conversation. They welcome new members with open arms, and often you can bring an item you are working on to the club, as well. I say, showing off feels good once in a while. Ping pong Okay, so whats wrong with this picture? Beautiful ping pong tables, and only a few people to play? Ben Medolla tells us that ping pong is great exercise, not very demanding, and all levels of players are welcome. That makes me want to play! So heres the challenge. Call Ben at 352-873-2919, set up a time to play, and Ill come and play too. But just be ready to be whopped, because ping pong is my specialty! Everyone is welcome, there are no pros allowed, and its just for fun. Dont worry, I wont tell anybody that you got whopped by a girl, either.Bingo What a surprise I had when I spoke with Pauline Shannon about Bingo! Did you know the jackpot is $250! YIKES! I am so there! It is played on Tuesday nights at the clubhouse. The early bird time is 6:30, and the regular games start at 6:45. To play all evening it is only $8! All the money that is taken in, is given back to the players minus just 10 percent. That sounds like a good deal to me. Pauline says that Bingo is fun, you can socialize, and it sure feels great when you win! Besides, the jackpots have been terrific! During the middle of the games, there is an intermission when you can purchase homemade cakes, pies, and drinks. They play on average 25 games and it stops at 9. It is open to the public, and all ages are welcome. You may call Pauline for more information at 352-854-7578. In My Opinion The weather will be warming up soon, so it will be time to get out and barbecue and play out in the sunshine. That makes it a perfect time to meet and greet any newcomers to your area of the community, or make the acquaintance of someone youd like to meet. We all love our community, and in order to make it the inviting and close knit place it should be, we need to reach out to our friends and neighbors. Drop off a meal to someone that is elderly, say hi, and smile at those you pass on the street. Wave as you drive by a walker. Try it soon, it feels really good when you do!Ann Brennan can be reached at nickevan7@hotmail.com or at 352-342-9466. St. Patricks Day dinner and party scheduled Spruce Creek North Ann Brennan Hospice seeks singers Hospice of Marion County invites you to consider a unique volunteer service.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Egypt over 3,000 years ago. It is therefore appropriate to use Shmurah Matzah during Passover, at least on each of the two Seder nights. The local effort is part of a global campaign by the Chabad-Lubavitch movement to increase holiday awareness and participation. According to estimates provided by Lubavitch World Headquarters in Brooklyn, New York, over four million hand-baked Shmurah Matzahs will be distributed by the Chabad movement this year. In addition, millions of Passover guides in 17 languages will educate people on the meaning and practices of the holiday. The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, taught that no solitary Jewish person ought to be left out. Every Jew, regardless of their background, affiliation or even location, should have access to the provisions they need to celebrate Passover, said Rabbi Yossi Hecht from the Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish Center of Marion County. There are Chabad emissaries across the globe are working feverishly to provide Jews with Matzahs, holiday guides and much more, To learn more about Passover, make reservations for the seder, or for further information, please contact Rabbi Yossi or Chanie at 352-291-2218 or email info@jewishmarion.org or visit our website at www.JewishMarion.org.Friendship Baptist ChurchDont forget to set your clocks ahead one hour as Daylight Saving Time begins.

Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish CenterThe Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish Center of Marion County and The Villages plans to distribute handmade Shmurah Matzah this year to help local Jews participate in the upcoming Passover holiday. The Matzahs will be distributed to doctors, lawyers members of the community or upon request. Passover, celebrated this year from Monday Night, March 25, until after nightfall on Tuesday, April 2, the exodus of the Jews from Egypt some 3,000 years ago. Directed by God to leave Egypt hastily, the people of Israel could not wait for their dough to rise, and thus ate unleavened crackers called Matzah. To celebrate the Exodus, Jews gather for festive Seder dinners on March 25 and 26, and abstain from eating, or even owning or benefiting from, any leavened substance such as bread and pasta. Shmurah literally means watched Matzah. From the moment the wheat is harvested, until the time it is baked, the ingredients are carefully watched to ensure that they do not come into contact with anything that could cause them to become leavened, which would be prohibited on Passover. Shmurah Matzahs are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, similar to the Matzahs that the Jews ate when leaving Friday, March 8, 2013~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Religion SEE RELIGION PAGE16 D awn was just breaking and the air was cold and chill but the clubhouse at Cherrywood was bustling with excitement. By ones; twos and more, people began to filter in. All were wearing coats; gloves; hats and other winter gear to keep the cold out but there were smiles on their faces and a spring in their step. Saturday was the Marion County Kidney Foundations Kicking Kidney Disease 5K run and our folks were ready for it. More than triple the number of participants from the year before took part. Holly Bragdon, coordinator for the event had done a magnificent job of motivating and mobilizing everyone. Skip Smith and his wife Trude provided the inspiration for this years run and in their honor, our team was registered as the Cherrywood Skippers. A total of 37 people signed up to take part in the event with several others donating to the cause. The Marion County Kidney Foundation is a totally volunteer organization that supports services and education for the citizens of our county. Their annual 5K run/walk held at the Florida Greenway Trailhead is their main fund raising event. Sponsors included but were not limited too; Winn Dixie; TD Bank; Marion County Hospice; and Taylor College. After arriving at the race site, the participants enjoyed free coffee and pastries provided by Dunkin Donuts. Pictures were taken and registration numbers pinned on and then it was time to begin. With the blast of a siren, the runners and walkers were off. When it was over, Joe Gignac had taken 3rd place and Dick Francis had won 4th place. Total time for all of our people ranged from 33 minutes to one hour and fifteen minutes in an age group that included 33 years of age to 81 years old. On top of that, the Skippers won the Team Spirit Trophy which will be displayed proudly in our clubhouse. People may not realize the sacrifice of our participants to do what they did. Getting up before daylight in cold weather; driving a half hour to be out in the weather and then walking or running the course; all of that takes a lot of guts and a huge heart. That is the caliber of people we have here in our community. This years participants were, event coordinator and team captain Holly Bragdon; David Bragdon; Mary Hamblen: Gail Lingham; Marty Dean; Eve Houghtaling; T.T.; Ed and Michele Maculewicz; Erica Hogan; Kathy Robson; Bonnie Clark; Richard Frances; Rich Hurley; Ruth Hurley; Jenny Arturi; Shirley Mercer; Joan Siegel; Marilyn Wood; Louise Tilly; Aprile Guglielmi; Diane DAlessandro; Sandee Spencer; Donna James; Mick James; Joe Gignac; Pia Dean; Sandra Brotherhood; Bill Brotherhood (with a cane); Frank Blair; and Ann Bardack. Those who registered but were unable to take part were Trude & Skip Smith; Chick Spencer; Joanne Perri; Genevieve Downs; and Robbi Febbo. To Holly and all of those who took part, congratulations and a huge Thank you. Your efforts have made life better for so many people. You should be proud of yourselves just as your community is proud of you. Accordion ClubDick Richards and company again brought a huge crowd out on Wednesday the 27th of February. The near capacity crowd was treated to the extraordinary accordion playing talents of Dick, Bob Mace; Bill Cahill on drums; trumpet player Richie Sturtevant and more as they joined together with other musicians to entertain and amaze the guests. Playing a wide variety of music from polkas to pop hits; there were solos; duets; and combos of every type. People danced; sang along with old favorites and enthusiastically applauded the efforts of all our talented musicians. Our Accordion Club has grown so large that Dick Richards had to bring on a Vice President. His name is Carl VanDerhith and between the two of them, there can be nothing but good things in the future for the club. The next Accordion Club will meet on Wednesday, March 27 at 5:30 p.m. We recommend that you get there as early Kidney Society 5K draws spirited crowd from Cherrywood Cherrywood John Everlove The Cherrywood Skippers at the Kicking Kidney Disease 5K event.

Wine tasting party While this event wont take place until May 14 there is no doubt in my mind that before April Fools Day, tickets will be gone. PRP Wine International is sponsoring this event that consists of two sessions of sampling various wines. The first show starts at 5:30 p.m. with predominantly sweet wines being offered with a couple of dry wines thrown in. The second show will start at 7:30 p.m. and feature predominantly dry wines with a couple of sweet dessert wines also being presented. There is no cost for this demonstration but seating is limited to 50 people per show. You can easily see why I said you should get your tickets early. Your free ticket will not only insure that you have a place at the wine tasting table but will also be used to award a door prize. Wine complements any occasion and knowing what to look for is always an asset. Come out and enjoy this learning experience with your neighbors and impress your friends at your next party.Spotlight on Excellence Each month we feature a person or persons who have an interesting past; a promising future or who have made a contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood.

While six children may seem like quite a few, her maternal grandmother had 18. She has 96 first cousins and she keeps in touch with every one of them. Now thats a family. Born Sarah Leslie, one of the founders of Hardwick is an ancestor of Sarahs and she can trace her lineage back to the one of the four families who first incorporated the town.

I am not sure where that came from, and I am not exactly sure what it means. If I cannot eat my cake, whose cake can I eat? I think it all depends on how you present the cake in question. One of the things most important and strongly supervised in our home by the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has to do with the presence of such food items as cake. At times, I think she is overly obsessed with some diet phenomenon. I, on the other hand, am rather open to the delicacies of such dietary niceties as cakes. Like I said, there is a way to get around everything. My problem is, how can I have my cake and eat it too? Recently my wife took a weeks vacation to New York to visit her relatives. While she was away for that week, I was in charge of our little homestead. Whatever happened, happened because I did it. Whatever didnt happen, didnt happen because I didnt do it. I have a simple rule in life. Do what you like and have fun doing it. My wifes rule in life is, do exactly what I tell you and do it now! When she is not present in the home, especially for a weeklong duration, I am the one supervising the rules. And so, during that week my rules ruled. I will not say I had fun during that week, because I would not want that kind of information to be leaked to certain people. All during the week, I ate every kind of delicacy I could wrap my lips around. Not one shred of salad could be found in the house during the whole week. Salads were outlawed, desserts were in order. On the day my wife was scheduled to return from her New York trip, I had to go to school and pick up one of my granddaughters. She was sick and nobody else was available but Yours Truly. When I picked her up she did not look quite as sick as I would have figured, Heres how you can have your cake and eat it too but who am I to question the wisdom of a schoolteacher. We spent the entire afternoon eating lunch at McDonalds, shopping at the Dollar Tree and just having a rip snorting time of our life. If this is sick, may I be sick every day of my life. As a supposedly sick 7-year-old, her energy ran her grandpa firmly into the ground. I am not sure I ever had that much energy. It was great to spend an afternoon with one of my granddaughters. Usually this is the privilege of grandma and so I felt honored to take her place for one afternoon. Toward the end of the afternoon my granddaughter said, When will grandma get home? I calculated it and responded by telling her that according to the schedule she should be getting home around 6 oclock. As that information saturated her little brain she then said, Well, can we have a surprise party for grandma? Off to the store we went. Things needed for purchasing to put together the surprise welcome home party for grandma. There were cards to purchase. I say cards because she could not choose between two cards and so we decided, or rather I should say, she decided to get both of them. Women start early in life, dont they. There were ribbons to buy and then she saw a nice bouquet of roses. We bought the roses. All this time I was thinking about a special project I had in mind. That special project took the form of a special welcome home cake. I took my granddaughter over to the case where all of the cakes were displayed and invited her to pick out one that suited her. As far as I am concerned, a cake is a cake and my favorite cake is the one I am eating at the time. She picked out a beautiful cake and we went to the checkout counter and paid for our wonderful purchases. Now it was home to set up our little welcome home party for grandma. My granddaughter spent quite a bit of time drawing pictures on the inside of the cards while I paid special attention to how to display the cake. I was sure that grandma, who usually does not approve of cake coming into our home, would not disapprove of this cake if we presented it right. When grandma walked in the door, we yelled Surprise and boy was she surprised. Then came the time for us to present the cake and eat it as well. Whoever says you cant have your cake and eat it too needs to sit down and talk with me. I have found a wonderful way of having my cake and eating it too without the sneering disapproval of You Know Who. I like what the Bible says. There has no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it (1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV). God always provides the cake and then invites us to eat it with Him. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Unlike Sarah, Frank was born overseas in Heidelberg, Germany. He was an army brat whose father was serving with the U.S. Army. His mom was born in Worms, Germany, and he has a brother, Jon, who lives in Nashville, Tennessee. Because of his parents, Frank moved around a lot but their home town was where his father grew up in Terra Haute, Indiana. After graduating from high school he attended Ivy Technical College to study electronics. This was not enough action for the young man so he tried a different career path. For six years, Frank promoted Country/Western shows all over Texas. Quite a change of pace from electronics but it was exciting, if grueling, work. Traveling all over the state Frank got to meet many people both stars and ordinary folks. He enjoyed them all. When his contract expired up he left the business. Being used to traveling Frank found his calling in the trucking business. He became a long haul trucker with Anderson Trucking Service in Saint Cloud, Minnesota, in 1988. That move would change his life in more ways than one. Following her graduation from Montpelier High School Sarah enlisted in the U.S. Army. She trained at Fort Sam Houston in Texas and became a Medical Specialist. She would serve at Fort Ord, California, and at Fort McClellan, Alabama, during her tour of service. While serving in the Army, Sarah met and married her first husband. They moved to California and while in that state, they opened a day care facility and took in foster children. She proudly states that they cared for 261 foster youngsters during that time. Sarah has one son from that marriage, James, who is a graphic artist in Monterey, California. She beams with pride as she talks about him and mentioned that he is also a member of MENSA; a prestigious group of individuals with a superior IQ. Frank also has a son, Franklin Junior. He has two daughters, Alyssa who is eight and Addrionne who is 6. They live in Indianapolis, Indiana, and are the apple of Frank and Sarahs eye. Following the break up of her marriage, Sarah returned to the familiar surroundings of Vermont where she found work at Blue Cross/Blue Shield. She worked originally as a claims adjuster but ended her career in the organ transplant department disbursing and processing payments for live organ recipients. In 1991 she was out in her garden when she heard her CB radio going off. Sarahs Dad was a CB buff and she has always had a base station in her home. On the radio, a trucker was asking directions to a place near her home. She picked up the microphone and a relationship began. The directions were complicated and the construction zones plentiful, so Sarah offered to meet him and lead him down the right roads. She hopped in her car and met him in a nearby parking lot. After they arrived at their destination, Frank was not shy and jumped in Sarahs car. He took her to dinner to thank her for her help. Later they would watch the fireworks on the lawn of the Montpelier State House. The fireworks have never ended. Frank was based out of Jacksonville while working with the trucking company basically because his parents had retired there. After a little persuasion and hundreds of dollars in phone bills, Sarah took a course at the National Truck Training Company. It was then that the two became a team not only for life but in business also. During his career Frank and Sarah hauled anchor bolts to Oakland, Californias Coliseum; the engine for the Space Shuttle from Cape Kennedy to Rocketdyne Corp. in Canaga Park, California; and the most sensitive load of all; artifacts from the Mayan Inca era. Taking the priceless treasures of the Mayan/Inca collection from Washington, D.C., to Mexico City was a pressure CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 24 Frank and Sarah Blair.

filled journey. The truck was allowed to stop only for gas and food while armed security guards and the museum curator escorted them on the entire trip. The Anderson Trucking Company used to put out a calendar every year but rather than hire professional photographers, they asked their drivers to contribute the photos. Frank and Sarah submitted many winning photographs which earned them bonuses. When retirement time came for the two, they had seen enough snow and ice in their lives so retirement could only be in Florida. Sarahs only requirement was that it had to be a home in a neighborhood. Country life was not for the people oriented Sarah. On advice from a friend in Vermont, she picked out two neighborhoods, On Top of the World and Cherrywood. Once she saw all the activities here at Cherrywood, her mind was made up. While they are relatively new to our community, Sarah and Frank have met many new friends and take pride in the various clubs and associations they belong to. Frank has a keen interest in billiards and foosball. He also enjoys walking; playing jeopardy and chess. He and Sarah have even been out to play Trivia here at Cherrywood. Sarah is occupied with caring for her mom who lives in Bronson. Sarah counts it as a privilege and honor to be able to look after her mother, taking her treats and making sure she gets the little things in life that are so important. When shes not at her moms, Sarah spends time at Bingo; the Accordion Club; the swimming pool; leads the Cribbage Club and plays Hand and Foot (A card game). She also loves to cook and quilting. Both Frank and Sarah are ardent Oakland Raider fans. Without going into detail, Sarah and Frank have both had to overcome some great difficulties in life. Their faith and love for each other has seen them through these hard times and continues to give them strength. To meet them you would never know they had a care in the world because of Sarahs beaming smile and Franks warm hand shake. They and those like them, make Cherrywood the terrific community that it is. From your reporterThis week, as most weeks, I am so very proud of my community. The Veterans Club spaghetti dinner fund raiser is sold out; Dick Richards of our Accordion Club had a near capacity crowd to enjoy the music; and our fantastic volunteers won a trophy raising funds for the Marion County Kidney Foundation. What an amazing bunch of people I have the privilege to associate with and have as friends. Thank you to each and every one of you.

Love kids? Our Reading Volunteer Group is looking for enthusiastic people to visit two of our local elementary schools and read to the lower grades. It would only take up about an hour of your time, six mornings a year each (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) at Sunrise and Marion Oaks Elementary schools. The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you are escorted by two of the children to their classroom. Having the children around you engaged and anticipating the next page, discussing the book, sharing the pictures, and just being with them is a truly rewarding experience. Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures in the wonderful world of books.

Softball The excitement is truly in the air as the league begins to tighten up. Coming to life are the Overholser and Great Clips teams with four wins and three losses. The teams are beginning to meld together as they are slowly beginning to creep up on the other teams. Clutch plays and good hitting have helped them to come from behind and losses by the other teams have changed the dynamics of the league. The Cebert Wealth team has been struggling since the loss of one of their key players, with just 1 win and 6 losses. They are hoping that an addition to their team will help to generate some wins. Wise Way still holds on to first place, but has to start building some more wins, as they have only generated two wins and five losses since our last report. The Dr Dunn and Tee Pee Tire teams have made an impressive run at getting closer to the top with their five wins and two losses since last month. Its a toss-up now as to what team will be in first place by next month, with all gearing up to make a move. Any losing or winning streak is going to make a difference.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 28 ~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com If you delve into the Constitution, as I've done, and I'm only going to address only two points here, you will find the men who wrote it were probably self serving and more concerned with a revolution and not qualified to write an intellectual piece. It was as though, in their Revolution against the King and England, they tried to cover about everything they could come up with since time began. While we give our forefathers a great deal of credit for the Revolutionary War and while many call it the war for independence, it was The Revolutionary War. I had a fifth great grandfather, Captain Charles Anderson, of the 11th Regiment, spend the winter of 1777-1778 with General George Washington at Valley Forge. Oh yes, Valley Forge was an encampment not a battle. Check with the Daughters of the America Revolution, (DAR), of which I can be a member, due to my ancestry, and you'll find it was, The Revolutionary War. Let's look at two points in the Constitution, when it was ratified on November 3, 1797, and in particular, I want to address only these two parts and they are stated verbatim. The Preamble to the Constitution: There are VII Original Articles, of the Constitution: The ensuing Amendments were also referred to as Articles of Amendment. From Article I, of the VII original Articles: Article I, Section 8, No. 12, states, To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of money to that Use shall be for no longer than two Years. It's interesting we've been at war for 10 years, starting in Iraq and Afghanistan, and we're still in Afghanistan. Then add to that, we're technically still at war with North Korea, as no treaty has been signed after 62 years, and there are still troops stationed in South Korea. Well, so much for a so a called police action Article I, Section 8, No. 13, states, To provide and maintain a Navy. In these first VII Original Articles, there is no mention of weaponry/guns. Then we come to Amendments to the Constitution, which follows, the Letter of Transmittal to the President of Congress, which by the way, paved the way for the ensuing Amendments (articles), the first 10 becoming, the Bill of Rights. Again, at this time, I'm only addressing the Second amendment/article. Amendment II, (an article), states: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. In essence, to maintain the security of a new nation, it was OK for people to bear arms for the security of a free state, through a well regulated militia. But now that we are not threatened with invasion of our nation/country, and have no militia, plus don't need arms to protect our nation/country/free state, we are using those weapons on each other. Interpret it any way you care to, but that's exactly what's happening. Under the false guise of needing guns, the NRA is trying to ram guns down our throats, and worse, even though Amendment II clearly refers to the need through a well regulated militia. Maybe the NRA still feels, the British are Coming, the British are Coming. What nonsense. Bill Ford Oak RunGovernment gotchaIf they cannot get it one way, they will get it another way, government bureaucrats that is: elected, and hired. This why it is worth spending time becoming government watchdogs. You might just spot something that grabs your attention, and do something about it. At least speak out, and voice your displeasure. There is always a small cadre of citizens who fancy themselves as possessed with bright ideas, and want the rest of us to pay for them. No matter how useless, wasteful, repetitive, or silly these ideas may be. Just such an incident occurred at the last County Commission meeting. (the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, they have printed agendas available, if you decide to attend). One particular item has been postponed until March 19. There will be a planning session to discuss the matter. This is where citizens can have input. What is it that has me doing loop-deloops? How about a 6 percent county tax on fuel? Does that grab your attention? Not certain how fuel is defined. Gasoline, or heating fuel? Surprise, surprise. Do you want or need a 6 percent tax on anything, especially on a necessity like fuel of any kind?? The time to gripe is before, not after. We sit here like dummies, we are treated like dummies. This why it is imperative we monitor our government at every level, local, state and federal. Having citizens attend meetings does make a difference. There are other bright ideas that have been noted, since our attendance at meetings. I cannot afford any more bright ideas. If we do not care, why should the bureaucrats care?. They can just keep taxing, and taxing merrily along. No one cares, to watch them. D.I. Larson Ocala, Fl Too much in benefitsLast month, the Senate Budget Committee reported that in fiscal year 2011, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. household below the poverty line received $168 a day in government support. Whats the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day. To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $25 an hour. Are we all crazy or what? Pam Lee Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 BY RICH LOWRY Special to the Citizen Some guys have it, and some don't. I'm referring to that special quality that makes powerful institutions want to throw fistfuls of dollars at them in senseless acts of high-priced beneficence. Jack Lew has it like nobody's business. You might think the bespectacled treasury secretary nominee is just another brainy budget wonk and miss the animal magnetism that makes his employers lose all sense of financial proportion around him, paying him astronomical sums, forgiving his loans and granting him generous golden parachutes. Yes, Jack Lew is a rare talent -at the art of getting paid. He left the Clinton administration, where he served as director of the Office of Management and Budget, for what turned out to be the extremely lucrative field of nonprofit education. At New York University, he made more than $800,000 in 2002. According to his W-2, examined by staff on Capitol Hill, he made $1.2 million in total compensation in 2006. Even for Jack Lew, housing in New York City can be expensive. Not to worry. New York University provided GUEST COMMENTARY Treasury secretary nominee Jack Lew has some powerful friends him a loan for housing. The trouble with loans is that they have to be paid back. Not to worry. All is forgiven if you are Jack Lew, especially your loans. According to Lew, the university forgave the loan of some $1.4 million "in equal installments over five years." Upon leaving NYU, Lew received what he describes as "a one-time severance payment upon my departure." He wasn't fired, usually the occasion for severances. He simply left and got paid for the act of leaving. Hey, that's Jack Lew -he gets paid when he stays and gets paid when he goes. He went to Citigroup, which NYU had made its primary private lender for student loans in exchange for a cut of those loans. (Coincidences happen to everyone, including Jack Lew.) In 2008, as the bank nearly blew up and laid off one-seventh of its employees, Lew ran its disastrous Alternative Investments unit -and got paid $1.1 million. The bank had to be bailed out by the federal government, but it couldn't stop paying Jack Lew. The journalist Jonathan Weil of Bloomberg has unearthed Lew's contract at Citi. It said, reasonably enough, that he wouldn't get his "guaranteed incentive and retention award" if he left the company. It made an exception, though, if Lew left to get "a full-time high level position with the United States government or regulatory body." Jack Lew being Jack Lew, he left Citi to become deputy secretary of state, on his way to resuming his duties at OMB, then becoming the chief of staff to the president, and now secretary of the treasury. And, of course, he got paid. The cynics talk of crony capitalism. The scoffers hint of special favors for the politically connected. The good-government types worry about the unseemliness of a too-big-to-fail Wall Street bank giving one of its executives an incentive to become a high-ranking government official. Maybe they should give it a rest and simply stand back and marvel at the moneymaking machine that is Jack Lew. Lesser mortals criticize and cavil. He gets paid.

For those of you who are unaware this could happen, (it does) Jeans job will be to prompt the cast with a line when memory fails them. When you consider the fact that most of our cast is in their 70s, and one in the 80s, you gotta remember we are in the forgetting mode!! Patty Waddel as our director and Diana Schmidt as her assistant have done a yeoman job of molding our cast into a real tight knit of performers. Kudos for their efforts.

Starting on Thursday, March 7, tennis instruction for beginners will be given between 2 and 4 p.m. for five consecutive weeks. Efforts are being made to set up a badminton court at the padrac facilities. This is a fast game and fun at the same time. The Oak Run Tennis Club every year asks that every player contribute the small amount of $5, which goes toward various improvements around the tennis courts. Unfortunately this year contributions have been coming in very slowly. If you have not yet contributed please give the money to Jim Newsheller or Joe Huszar. This is a small amount for the privilege of playing tennis. Tally tennis is in full swing on Tuesday and Thursday at 2 p.m. All levels of players are welcome. We have had some guests that have been good players, so come down for an afternoon of fun tennis. ORWGAHere is the list of winners for the Feb. 21 Low Net Tournament. Names are listed in order of finFriday, March 8, 2013~ 29 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, March 8, 2013 M y high school algebra teacher, Mr. Gretsch, would periodically refocus the attention of students with an outburst of irrelevant wisdom. His favorite was to wave his arm above his head, and exclaim loudly: You know were all a little crazy! Rampage killings, such as the recent carnage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, bring to mind Mr. Gretschs suggestion that we live among many unstable people, some of whom might become harmfully aggressive at any time. The White House response to the Sandy Hook rampage was the Biden Committee recommendations, which focus mainly on gun control, as expected and requested by President Obama. For 40 years since 1971 weve been engaged in the costly and unsuccessful war on drugs, with no end in sight. The worst mess in this longest war ever was Operation Fast and Furious selling guns to smugglers in expectation of tracing the weapons to the drug cartels. The results were killing rampages in Mexico and the death of one of our own ATF officers. Efforts to keep track of thousands of weapons were futile. Apparently the lessons from six years (2005-2011) of gun walking were not learned. The Obama administration is apparently committed to trying to reduce killing rampages by keeping track of guns. We foresee another federal bureaucracy which will spend billions of dollars, add thousands of federal employees, produce tons of records about gun purchases and owners, and accomplish little if anything to prevent violence just another Washington spending compulsion. The Biden Committee did include a fuzzy but possibly more productive recommendation for a national dialogue on mental health problems related to violence. The so-called Cannibal Cop trial in New York suggests that identifying people preparing to do harm is possible, and makes more sense than cataloguing purchases and possession of guns and cartridges in hope of occasionally stumbling on a potential killer. The New York police officer referred to by the media as the Cannibal Cop is on trial for conspiring to kidnap, cook, and eat young women. His authority to carry a gun has no bearing on the case. The evidence offered by the prosecution includes kinky photos, fetish chat rooms, a trail of emails, and a file of womens names, addresses, and pictures. The dilemma for prosecutors in such cases is how far the law can be stretched to prevent harm. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that expanding government power to eavesdrop on e-mail and phone talk in search of likely future injury is too speculative. However, law enforcement agencies around the country do identify and corral sex peddlers without crossing legal limits. They also intercept many online child predators. In most cases the peculiarities of rampage killers were known or suspected by people who could have alerted a crime stopper agency if they were better informed. Rampage killings are more preventable by interception than by counting and cataloguing guns. We think focusing on weaponry is wishful thinking and dumb. T his year we had other things to write, so we didnt go through our yearly list of Super Bowl commercials that we liked. For you non-football fans, each year, because of the exposure, many national brands choose to unveil new commercials during the Super Bowl. They know that millions of people will be watching. I didnt even keep a list this year, but there is one still airing that stand out. Best liked in our household is the Budweiser ad, which kind of has a tie to the horse industry in our area. In the ad, a man raises a Clydesdale horse from youth until it is old enough to go on a truck to become a Bud Clydesdale, and he sadly says goodbye. Three years later he goes to see a parade and the Clydesdales are in it, and he looks with pride as the horse passes by. Later, as hes in his car, the horse breaks away and follows him and the two are emotionally reunited. It was one of the nicer ads to hit the airwaves. As long as were talking about commercials, there are others that are getting a little tiresome. State Farm: The young woman comes out of her apartment and sees a guy designing an accident on his phone. The woman says she heard on the Internet that State Farm doesnt have apps and they cant put anything on the Internet that isnt true. Soon her boyfriend comes to pick her up, and hes a big oaf who she thinks is a French model that she met on the Internet. He slaughters bon jour. She then gives her friend a sly smile as she walks away with her date. AT&T: The guy sits around a table with a bunch of little kids, kindergarten or first grade, and they talk about whats better. In fast or slow, one little kid wants to tape a cheetah to his grandmas back; in bigger is better a girl says a small tree house wouldnt be big enough for a TV. These ads are really annoying. Progressive: From Flo meeting some guy on a lonely road to competitors having their pants on fire because they were lying (no mas pantalones), these ads run the gamut from insulting to dumb. Sometimes you wish that advertisers would come up with something new. Do they really think theyre holding our attention with these ads? Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

F or some reason, with all the cold weather, the beginning of Daylight Saving Time comes sneaking in like a thief in the night. Nearly everyone we tell to make sure they change their clocks this coming weekend has one response: Already? Many people echo the sentiment that we feel: Just decide which way you want it, and then leave it alone all year. For various reasons, we would prefer staying on Daylight Saving Time all year. It just seems nicer to have a little daylight left after the workday. One of the arguments against Daylight Saving Time is that it means children waiting for school buses in the dark. Well, all you have to do is go out now, during standard time, and youll already see children waiting in the dark. In addition, many of us remember when we went to school and the hours were 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thats right, young people. Not everyone was raised with the first bell at 8:22 and the last bell at 2:13, or some odd times like that. It was very simple, 9 to 3, eight 45-minute periods. It was so simple a first grader could understand. If youre really concerned, just start schools one hour later when Daylight Saving Time takes effect. That means the number of children out in the dark would stay the same, and gradually dwindle as the days get longer. Energy savings? We never did buy that argument. Whats the difference whether you use extra lights in the morning or extra lights in the evening? So get ready for the time change. Spring, when the clocks move ahead, is the time when people are late for everything. Since the time changes at 2 a.m. Sunday, its usually church services that are the first to feel the brunt of the change when people show up an hour late. There will also be a lot of people doing a lot of extra yawning come Monday morning at offices all across the country. But take heart. You have plenty of time to get used to it. The clocks dont change back until Nov. 3. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY One more time, change your clocks A late review of the Super Bowl ads Wisdom means learning from your failures READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Flynn Columnist Jim Clark Editor Read the classifieds LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Bad HOA billA recently filed Florida State Senate Bill should be reviewed by every property owner in a residential community with a homeowner association (HOA). You can web search and read FL S 0596 2013Bill Text. In particular, pages 4 through 38 attempts to fix the already defective Chapter 720 that governs how HOAs must operate. Unfortunately, the proposals will not fix but instead will encourage ongoing bad and illegal behavior by developers, directors and managers. As proposed, a property owner that is not a felon and has paid up association fees may be a director. Surprisingly, any other person not owning property including an incarcerated felon may legally be a director. If required annual meetings are not held or are run illegally, the bad guys stay in office with no penalty. Astoundingly, the bill allows the developer to use any amount of votes per lot (disguised as voting interests) to outvote everyone else, not at all equal to the measly one vote you have. Required association transition from developer control to member control maybe occurs when a confusing number of lots are sold, not at an absolute time (like 5 years) from incorporation. Developers just sell some lots to their other companies or keep some lots, allowing continuation of the profitable dictatorship forever. Finally, ambiguity remains over which HOAs are controlled by Chapter 720. The statute must include every Not-for-Profit HOA in Florida. Read the Bill, write your Senator. Help fix the problems. Don Kronen, Ocala The Constitution misinterpreted I guess there are people who are interpreting the Constitution as well as the Bill of Rights, and their civics classes, are not well informed. They apparently do, as many people do when interpreting other writings, just pick out what they want, and give their own take on it. I would guess, anyone under the age of 50, has not been taught civics in school as it was taught in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. When I was in high school, we were required to take civics and in college also required to take Western Civilization. Now, studying civics was about as interesting as watching grass grow. But, when I look back, it was one of the most interesting, and important courses I was required to study. Now that I'm a senior citizen, with more time on my hands to do whatever I choose, I've been studying the Constitution, and how it's being misinterpreted so satisfy individuals and groups, to their advantage.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 39 To help encourage the nearly 40 percent of at-risk Americans who are not getting screened for colon cancer to take this lifesaving step, Endoscopy Center of Ocala is participating in National Colon Cancer Screening Day, a national effort to screen 2,013 firsttime patients for colon cancer on Friday, March 8. When detected in the earliest stage, colon cancer patients have a 90 percent chance of survival. With March being both the pinnacle of the college basketball season as well as Colon Cancer Awareness Month, StopColonCancerNow.com hopes to encourage people to rally around their health in the same way that they rally around their favorite team. As part of March Gladness, National Screening Day is the day to get in the game and complete or schedule a colonoscopy. During its inaugural year in 2012, the National Screening Day goal of screening 1,000 firsttime patients was exceeded. StopColonCancerNow.com has set the bar even higher this year, making it the perfect time for those 50 years of age and older (45 years of age and older for African Americans) or for those who have a family history of polyps or colon cancer, to make that appointment. March Gladness is the peace of mind that comes with taking care of your health, and a colonoscopy is one of the most important steps an individual 50 or over can take, said Dr. Olejeme of Endoscopy Center of Ocala. Too many patients are putting off making this appointment. By designating a national screening day, l hope to raise awareness among first-time patients and break down the barriers associated with the procedure. Its an easy call to make and the message is clear; a colonoscopy can save your life.

Wednesday, March 20 Interfaith women to meet Empathy is it hardwired in humans or can it be developed? Rev. Peggy Hostetler, newly elected president of The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County, will examine the capacity of pre-schoolers to develop empathy for others when she addresses the organizations next potluck luncheon womens gathering which will take place Wednesday, March 20 at the Unity Church, 101 Cedar Road, in Silver Springs Shores. Doors at the church will open at 11:30 a.m. with the formal program concluding at 1 p.m. Rev. Hostetler has selected her topic as a facet of The Charter for Compassion, the organizations theme for 2013. Development of this document was spearheaded by Karen Armstrong and other leading thinkers in an effort to activate adherence to the Golden Rule in cultures and religions throughout the world. The pastor of the Oakbrook Center for Spiritual Living wants to encourage children to become altruistic adults who buy shoes for a homeless man on a freezing night, or rush to lift a commuter pushed onto the subway tracks as the train nears rather than those whose callous behavior leads to the bullying and disdain for the other which afflicts so many raised only to be princes and princesses of all they survey. Betty Jean Wochinski, secretary-treasurer of The Interfaith Alliance and member of the Unity Church, is hostess for the event. Please telephone her at 352680-9296 or visit www.TIAMarionCountyFL.org to RSVP or for more information.

COOL I D GE By Am ity Shlaes In re-examining our obscure 30th president, Calvin Coolidge, historian Amity Shlaes hopes to illuminate the country we once were. She begins by tracing Coolidges improbable rise from a tiny New England town. As a youth he was so unpopular at Amherst that he was shut out of fraternities and made few friends. But his father had taught Calvin perseverance and when doors closed to him he found others to open. Politics was one of those doors. The flint-faced VermonterSilent Cal as he came to be knownbrought tough fiscal discipline to his presidency. Shlaes sees him as a rare kind of hero, a minimalist president, and economic general of budgeting and tax cuts. This new biography is firmly anchored in the 1920s for the most part with the entrance of Franklin Delano Roosevelts first term as its terminus. Ironically, at the start of his political career Coolidge came under the sway of the Republican progressive movement, personified with flair by Theodore Roosevelt. In the state senate, he voted for womens suffrage, a state income tax, minimum wage for female workers, and salary increases for teachers. But then Coolidge began not only to question progressivism but also to find the radicalism of union leaders alarming. In 1919 as Massachusetts governor Coolidge gained widespread fame when Boston police went on strike, unleashing looting, property damage and street violence. A fearful nation awaited Coolidges reaction. Most expected conciliatory treatment of the policemen. Instead, he stared down the strikers and brought in the National Guard. Knowing such a move would cost him the Irish vote he nevertheless believed that there is no right to strike against public safety. His gutsy response would earn him a mere footnote in history. Yet when Ronald Reagan stared down the air traffickers in the 1980s he became a hero for all time. The Coolidge years were a time of both joy and sadness. With his lovely, welleducated wife Grace by his side, Coolidge was able to enjoy many of the perks of the White House. But the sudden death of his son Calvin Jr. from a blister that turned into blood poisoning brought insurmountable grief. When pressed to serve a third term, Coolidge reflected on the high price in health his predecessors had paid and to the surprise of his party, he declined. Shlaes believes the Coolidge legacy of fiscal restraint is timely as the nation faces a looming economic crisis brought about in large measure by mounting public debt.

When you work and pay Social Security taxes, you earn credits toward Social Security benefits. If you were born in 1929 or later, you need 40 credits (10 years of work) to qualify for retirement benefits. We determine the amount of your benefit by both how long you work and how much you earn. The higher your lifetime earnings, the higher your monthly benefits. If there were some years when you did not work or had low earnings, your benefit amount may be lower than if you had worked steadily or earned more. Your age at the time you start receiving Social Security retirement makes a difference in your benefit amount. The full retirement age (the age at which 100 percent of retirement benefits are payable) has been gradually rising from age 65 to age 67. You can take early retirement as early as age 62, but if you start collecting benefits before you reach your full retirement age, your monthly payment will be reduced. You can find out what your full retirement age is by referring to the convenient chart at www.socialsecurity.gov/retire2/retirechart.htm Just as you can choose an early retirement and get a reduced payment, you also can choose to keep working beyond your full retirement age to take advantage of a larger payment. Generally, your benefit will increase automatically by eight percent each year from the time you reach your full retirement age until you start receiving your benefits or until you reach age 70. The decision of when to retire is personal and depends on a number of factors. To help you weigh the factors, we suggest you read our online fact sheet, When To Start Receiving Retirement Benefits, available at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10147.html. You may want to consider your options by using our Retirement Estimator to get instant, personalized estimates of future benefits. You can plug in different retirement ages and scenarios to help you make a more informed retirement decision. Try it out at www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator. You also can set up an online my Social Security account. You can use your my Social Security account to obtain a copy of your Social Security Statement to check your earnings record and see future estimates of the retirement, disability, and survivor benefits you and your family may receive. Visit www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount. When you decide to retire, the easiest and most convenient way to do it is right from the comfort of your home or office computer. Go to www.socialsecurity.gov where you can apply for retirement benefits in as little as 15 minutes. In most cases, there are no forms to sign or documents to send; once you submit your electronic application, thats it! Youre done! Be sure to have your bank account inIts time for you to spring into retirement Social Security Adon Williams formation handy so you can receive your payments electronically. Electronic payment of federal benefits is now mandatory, with few exceptions. Spring is a great time to turn a new leaf. Spring into retirement now!

You also can start or change your direct deposit information. Check it out at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount. 2. The Retirement Estimator is an easy way to get an instant, personalized estimate of your future Social Security benefits.

On Sunday, March 3, at about 2 p.m., a deputy responded to 7771 S.W. 117th St. Road after a caller described an apparent homicide scene. At the home, according to the report, the deputy and a partner entered the home and found Bronwyn Wilcox, who would have been 81 years old on Wednesday, March 6, lying on her back on the floor between the kitchen and eat-in dining area. In the kitchen, the deputies found several notes on the counter advising to cancel insurance, etc. and several phone numbers for the next of kin. Deputies then went through the master bedroom and into the master bath, and found Harold M. Wilcox, 80, in the walk-in shower, fully clothed. There was a shotgun and blood in the shower, and the report says he apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He also found other personal papers in front of the shower. Neighbors said they had spoken with the victims who said they were going to church, as did the neighbors. When the neighbors returned and opened their garage door, they found a box that wasnt there before. There was a note and a key to the Wilcox home. The neighbors went immediately to the Wilcox home and found the bodies.

All contributions are subject to editing for clarity, taste, and style.Member of the Community Papers of Florida Here are a few important items about Social Security retirement benefits and how to apply for them. When you work and pay Social Security taxes, you earn credits toward Social Security benefits. If you were born in 1929 or later, you need 40 credits (10 years of work) to qualify for retirement benefits. We determine the amount of your benefit by both how long you work and how much you earn. The higher your lifetime earnings, the higher your monthly benefits. If there were some years when you did not work or had low earnings, your benefit amount may be lower than if you had worked steadily or earned more. Your age at the time you start receiving Social Security retirement makes a difference in your benefit amount. The full retirement age (the age at which 100 percent of retirement benefits are payable) has been gradually rising from age 65 to age 67. You can take early retirement as early as age 62, but if you start collecting benefits before you reach your full retirement age, your monthly payment will be reduced. You can find out what your full retirement age is by referring to the convenient chart at www.socialsecurity.gov/retire2/retirechart.htm Just as you can choose an early retirement and get a reduced payment, you also can choose to keep working beyond your full retirement age to take advantage of a larger payment. Generally, your benefit will increase automatically by eight percent each year from the time you reach your full retirement age until you start receiving your benefits or until you reach age 70. The decision of when to retire is personal and depends on a number of factors. To help you weigh the factors, we suggest you read our online fact sheet, When To Start Receiving Retirement Benefits, available at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10147.html. You may want to consider your options by using our Retirement Estimator to get instant, personalized estimates of future benefits. You can plug in different retirement ages and scenarios to help you make a more informed retirement decision. Try it out at www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator. You also can set up an online my Social Security account. You can use your my Social Security account to obtain a copy of your Social Security Statement to check your earnings record and see future estimates of the retirement, disability, and survivor benefits you and your family may receive. Visit www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount. When you decide to retire, the easiest and most convenient way to do it is right from the comfort of your home or office computer. Go to www.socialsecurity.gov where you can apply for retirement benefits in as little as 15 minutes. In most cases, there are no forms to sign or documents to send; once you submit your electronic application, thats it! Youre done! Be sure to have your bank account inIts time for you to spring into retirement Social Security Adon Williams formation handy so you can receive your payments electronically.

COOLID GE By Amity Shlaes In re-examining our obscure 30th president, Calvin Coolidge, historian Amity Shlaes hopes to illuminate the country we once were. She begins by tracing Coolidges improbable rise from a tiny New England town. As a youth he was so unpopular at Amherst that he was shut out of fraternities and made few friends. But his father had taught Calvin perseverance and when doors closed to him he found others to open. Politics was one of those doors. The flint-faced VermonterSilent Cal as he came to be knownbrought tough fiscal discipline to his presidency. Shlaes sees him as a rare kind of hero, a minimalist president, and economic general of budgeting and tax cuts. This new biography is firmly anchored in the 1920s for the most part with the entrance of Franklin Delano Roosevelts first term as its terminus. Ironically, at the start of his political career Coolidge came under the sway of the Republican progressive movement, personified with flair by Theodore Roosevelt. In the state senate, he voted for womens suffrage, a state income tax, minimum wage for female workers, and salary increases for teachers. But then Coolidge began not only to question progressivism but also to find the radicalism of union leaders alarming. In 1919 as Massachusetts governor Coolidge gained widespread fame when Boston police went on strike, unleashing looting, property damage and street violence. A fearful nation awaited Coolidges reaction. Most expected conciliatory treatment of the policemen. Instead, he stared down the strikers and brought in the National Guard. Knowing such a move would cost him the Irish vote he nevertheless believed that there is no right to strike against public safety. His gutsy response would earn him a mere footnote in history. Yet when Ronald Reagan stared down the air traffickers in the 1980s he became a hero for all time. The Coolidge years were a time of both joy and sadness. With his lovely, welleducated wife Grace by his side, Coolidge was able to enjoy many of the perks of the White House. But the sudden death of his son Calvin Jr. from a blister that turned into blood poisoning brought insurmountable grief. When pressed to serve a third term, Coolidge reflected on the high price in health his predecessors had paid and to the surprise of his party, he declined. Shlaes believes the Coolidge legacy of fiscal restraint is timely as the nation faces a looming economic crisis brought about in large measure by mounting public debt.

Peggy Hostetler, newly elected president of The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County, will examine the capacity of pre-schoolers to develop empathy for others when she addresses the organizations next potluck luncheon womens gathering which will take place Wednesday, March 20 at the Unity Church, 101 Cedar Road, in Silver Springs Shores. Doors at the church will open at 11:30 a.m. with the formal program concluding at 1 p.m. Rev. Hostetler has selected her topic as a facet of The Charter for Compassion, the organizations theme for 2013. Development of this document was spearheaded by Karen Armstrong and other leading thinkers in an effort to activate adherence to the Golden Rule in cultures and religions throughout the world. The pastor of the Oakbrook Center for Spiritual Living wants to encourage children to become altruistic adults who buy shoes for a homeless man on a freezing night, or rush to lift a commuter pushed onto the subway tracks as the train nears rather than those whose callous behavior leads to the bullying and disdain for the other which afflicts so many raised only to be princes and princesses of all they survey.

Please telephone her at 352680-9296 or visit www.TIAMarionCountyFL.org to RSVP or for more information.Thursday, March 21 Air Force group to meetThe March meeting of the Red Tail Memorial Chapter 136 of the Air Force Association (AFA) will be held on Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m. at the Ocala Regional Airport Administration Building, 750 S.W. 60th Ave., Ocala.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 39 To help encourage the nearly 40 percent of at-risk Americans who are not getting screened for colon cancer to take this lifesaving step, Endoscopy Center of Ocala is participating in National Colon Cancer Screening Day, a national effort to screen 2,013 firsttime patients for colon cancer on Friday, March 8. When detected in the earliest stage, colon cancer patients have a 90 percent chance of survival. With March being both the pinnacle of the college basketball season as well as Colon Cancer Awareness Month, StopColonCancerNow.com hopes to encourage people to rally around their health in the same way that they rally around their favorite team. As part of March Gladness, National Screening Day is the day to get in the game and complete or schedule a colonoscopy. During its inaugural year in 2012, the National Screening Day goal of screening 1,000 firsttime patients was exceeded. StopColonCancerNow.com has set the bar even higher this year, making it the perfect time for those 50 years of age and older (45 years of age and older for African Americans) or for those who have a family history of polyps or colon cancer, to make that appointment. March Gladness is the peace of mind that comes with taking care of your health, and a colonoscopy is one of the most important steps an individual 50 or over can take, said Dr. Olejeme of Endoscopy Center of Ocala. Too many patients are putting off making this appointment. By designating a national screening day, l hope to raise awareness among first-time patients and break down the barriers associated with the procedure. Its an easy call to make and the message is clear; a colonoscopy can save your life.

handwriting as used by those creating records on documents such as the census and ship passenger lists. Cursive lettering has changed over the years and we should make notes of the most used words. Bill Balch will bring us up to date on the clubs blog. Following these presentations we will have refreshments and a 50/50 drawing. Please keep in mind that programs are subject to change. Regular meetings are at 9:30 a.m. on the third Friday of each month in the card room; however, as a reminder, in March, June, September and December meetings are held at 11 a.m. in the Orchid Club auditorium. Announcements of club activities are on channel 12 and at www.orgenealogy.blogspo t.com. Oak Run residents may read the blog but only club members can post comments, questions, or answer comments to questions. Oak Run residents interested in researching ancestors are welcome to attend meetings and to join us. The annual membership is $6 and entitles you to get help in finding the missing links in your family tree, to meet others with the genealogy addiction, and to attend the holiday party. New England ClubThe New England Club of Oak Run will meet on March 21 at the Orchid Club, with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. and short agenda beginning at 5:45 p.m. A dinner will follow catered by Royal Oaks with a choice of ham with raisin sauce or chicken marsala, salad, vegetables and dessert. The cost of $15 will be collected at the sign-up on Monday, March 11 or Friday the 15th at the Orchid Club lobby from 10 a.m. until noon Entertainment will be by Gates Landry on his guitar. Please remember to wear your name tag, bring cash for the 50/50, and bring your own place setting including silverware, dish, napkin and beverage of your choice. Tea and coffee will be available. There will be door prizes. For more information call Mary at 352-854-7941 or Cecilia at 352-854-5836.Performing Arts CompanyAs you read this article there are only 11 days until showtime for the Performing Arts Companys play, The Odd Couple, and if you havent got your tickets for this rip snorting funny show, call Linda Noel at 352-873-9908. Rehearsals are going smooth as silk and Oak Runners are in for a real treat when they plant themselves in the Palm Grove Club. From the opening remarks by Lou Winkleman, to the set decorations by Dee Gragg, to the lobby decorations by Shari and Hal Weber, we think you will be impressed. We welcome Jean Muncy back to Oak Run where in previous years she was the musical director for such plays as Bedside Manor and Magnolia. Jean and Paul left the community a few years ago but longed to return and we are happy to have them back in the fold. This year Jean is getting her feet wet by becoming our stage prompter. For those of you who are unaware this could happen, (it does) Jeans job will be to prompt the cast with a line when memory fails them. When you consider the fact that most of our cast is in their 70s, and one in the 80s, you gotta remember we are in the forgetting mode!! Patty Waddel as our director and Diana Schmidt as her assistant have done a yeoman job of molding our cast into a real tight knit of performers. Kudos for their efforts. Doors for the dinner theatre open at 4:45 p.m., with dinner at 5:15 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday shows doors open at 6:15 p.m. and on Sunday at 2:15 p.m. Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door prior to each performance. Come join the fun!! Oak Run Tennis ClubSpring is in the air. You may not be aware what has been happening at the Oak Run Tennis Club. Jim Newsheller has volunteered to become the next tennis club facilitator, We thank Joe Husjar for the improvements to the courts over the past many years. He will still be involved and we can count on him for his continued support. Through the generosity of a few dedicated players, the tennis club has been able to purchase a new ball machine. For those who want individual training on using the machine please sign up at the courts. Starting on Thursday, March 7, tennis instruction for beginners will be given between 2 and 4 p.m. for five consecutive weeks. Efforts are being made to set up a badminton court at the padrac facilities. This is a fast game and fun at the same time. The Oak Run Tennis Club every year asks that every player contribute the small amount of $5, which goes toward various improvements around the tennis courts. Unfortunately this year contributions have been coming in very slowly. If you have not yet contributed please give the money to Jim Newsheller or Joe Huszar. This is a small amount for the privilege of playing tennis. Tally tennis is in full swing on Tuesday and Thursday at 2 p.m. All levels of players are welcome. We have had some guests that have been good players, so come down for an afternoon of fun tennis. ORWGAHere is the list of winners for the Feb. 21 Low Net Tournament. Names are listed in order of fin-Friday, March 8, 2013~ 29 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, March 8, 2013 My high school algebra teacher, Mr. Gretsch, would periodically refocus the attention of students with an outburst of irrelevant wisdom. His favorite was to wave his arm above his head, and exclaim loudly: You know were all a little crazy! Rampage killings, such as the recent carnage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, bring to mind Mr. Gretschs suggestion that we live among many unstable people, some of whom might become harmfully aggressive at any time. The White House response to the Sandy Hook rampage was the Biden Committee recommendations, which focus mainly on gun control, as expected and requested by President Obama. For 40 years since 1971 weve been engaged in the costly and unsuccessful war on drugs, with no end in sight. The worst mess in this longest war ever was Operation Fast and Furious selling guns to smugglers in expectation of tracing the weapons to the drug cartels. The results were killing rampages in Mexico and the death of one of our own ATF officers. Efforts to keep track of thousands of weapons were futile. Apparently the lessons from six years (2005-2011) of gun walking were not learned. The Obama administration is apparently committed to trying to reduce killing rampages by keeping track of guns. We foresee another federal bureaucracy which will spend billions of dollars, add thousands of federal employees, produce tons of records about gun purchases and owners, and accomplish little if anything to prevent violence just another Washington spending compulsion. The Biden Committee did include a fuzzy but possibly more productive recommendation for a national dialogue on mental health problems related to violence. The so-called Cannibal Cop trial in New York suggests that identifying people preparing to do harm is possible, and makes more sense than cataloguing purchases and possession of guns and cartridges in hope of occasionally stumbling on a potential killer. The New York police officer referred to by the media as the Cannibal Cop is on trial for conspiring to kidnap, cook, and eat young women. His authority to carry a gun has no bearing on the case. The evidence offered by the prosecution includes kinky photos, fetish chat rooms, a trail of emails, and a file of womens names, addresses, and pictures. The dilemma for prosecutors in such cases is how far the law can be stretched to prevent harm. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that expanding government power to eavesdrop on e-mail and phone talk in search of likely future injury is too speculative. However, law enforcement agencies around the country do identify and corral sex peddlers without crossing legal limits. They also intercept many online child predators. In most cases the peculiarities of rampage killers were known or suspected by people who could have alerted a crime stopper agency if they were better informed. Rampage killings are more preventable by interception than by counting and cataloguing guns. We think focusing on weaponry is wishful thinking and dumb. This year we had other things to write, so we didnt go through our yearly list of Super Bowl commercials that we liked. For you non-football fans, each year, because of the exposure, many national brands choose to unveil new commercials during the Super Bowl. They know that millions of people will be watching. I didnt even keep a list this year, but there is one still airing that stand out. Best liked in our household is the Budweiser ad, which kind of has a tie to the horse industry in our area. In the ad, a man raises a Clydesdale horse from youth until it is old enough to go on a truck to become a Bud Clydesdale, and he sadly says goodbye. Three years later he goes to see a parade and the Clydesdales are in it, and he looks with pride as the horse passes by. Later, as hes in his car, the horse breaks away and follows him and the two are emotionally reunited. It was one of the nicer ads to hit the airwaves. As long as were talking about commercials, there are others that are getting a little tiresome. State Farm: The young woman comes out of her apartment and sees a guy designing an accident on his phone. The woman says she heard on the Internet that State Farm doesnt have apps and they cant put anything on the Internet that isnt true. Soon her boyfriend comes to pick her up, and hes a big oaf who she thinks is a French model that she met on the Internet. He slaughters bon jour. She then gives her friend a sly smile as she walks away with her date. AT&T: The guy sits around a table with a bunch of little kids, kindergarten or first grade, and they talk about whats better. In fast or slow, one little kid wants to tape a cheetah to his grandmas back; in bigger is better a girl says a small tree house wouldnt be big enough for a TV. These ads are really annoying. Progressive: From Flo meeting some guy on a lonely road to competitors having their pants on fire because they were lying (no mas pantalones), these ads run the gamut from insulting to dumb. Sometimes you wish that advertisers would come up with something new. Do they really think theyre holding our attention with these ads?Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

For some reason, with all the cold weather, the beginning of Daylight Saving Time comes sneaking in like a thief in the night. Nearly everyone we tell to make sure they change their clocks this coming weekend has one response: Already? Many people echo the sentiment that we feel: Just decide which way you want it, and then leave it alone all year. For various reasons, we would prefer staying on Daylight Saving Time all year. It just seems nicer to have a little daylight left after the workday. One of the arguments against Daylight Saving Time is that it means children waiting for school buses in the dark. Well, all you have to do is go out now, during standard time, and youll already see children waiting in the dark. In addition, many of us remember when we went to school and the hours were 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thats right, young people. Not everyone was raised with the first bell at 8:22 and the last bell at 2:13, or some odd times like that. It was very simple, 9 to 3, eight 45-minute periods. It was so simple a first grader could understand. If youre really concerned, just start schools one hour later when Daylight Saving Time takes effect. That means the number of children out in the dark would stay the same, and gradually dwindle as the days get longer. Energy savings? We never did buy that argument. Whats the difference whether you use extra lights in the morning or extra lights in the evening? So get ready for the time change. Spring, when the clocks move ahead, is the time when people are late for everything. Since the time changes at 2 a.m. Sunday, its usually church services that are the first to feel the brunt of the change when people show up an hour late. There will also be a lot of people doing a lot of extra yawning come Monday morning at offices all across the country. But take heart. You have plenty of time to get used to it. The clocks dont change back until Nov. 3. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY One more time, change your clocks A late review of the Super Bowl ads Wisdom means learning from your failures READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Flynn Columnist Jim Clark Editor Read the classifieds LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Bad HOA billA recently filed Florida State Senate Bill should be reviewed by every property owner in a residential community with a homeowner association (HOA). You can web search and read FL S 0596 2013Bill Text. In particular, pages 4 through 38 attempts to fix the already defective Chapter 720 that governs how HOAs must operate. Unfortunately, the proposals will not fix but instead will encourage ongoing bad and illegal behavior by developers, directors and managers. As proposed, a property owner that is not a felon and has paid up association fees may be a director. Surprisingly, any other person not owning property including an incarcerated felon may legally be a director. If required annual meetings are not held or are run illegally, the bad guys stay in office with no penalty. Astoundingly, the bill allows the developer to use any amount of votes per lot (disguised as voting interests) to outvote everyone else, not at all equal to the measly one vote you have. Required association transition from developer control to member control maybe occurs when a confusing number of lots are sold, not at an absolute time (like 5 years) from incorporation. Developers just sell some lots to their other companies or keep some lots, allowing continuation of the profitable dictatorship forever. Finally, ambiguity remains over which HOAs are controlled by Chapter 720. The statute must include every Not-for-Profit HOA in Florida. Read the Bill, write your Senator. Help fix the problems. Don Kronen, Ocala The Constitution misinterpreted I guess there are people who are interpreting the Constitution as well as the Bill of Rights, and their civics classes, are not well informed. They apparently do, as many people do when interpreting other writings, just pick out what they want, and give their own take on it. I would guess, anyone under the age of 50, has not been taught civics in school as it was taught in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. When I was in high school, we were required to take civics and in college also required to take Western Civilization. Now, studying civics was about as interesting as watching grass grow. But, when I look back, it was one of the most interesting, and important courses I was required to study. Now that I'm a senior citizen, with more time on my hands to do whatever I choose, I've been studying the Constitution, and how it's being misinterpreted so satisfy individuals and groups, to their advantage.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com If you delve into the Constitution, as I've done, and I'm only going to address only two points here, you will find the men who wrote it were probably self serving and more concerned with a revolution and not qualified to write an intellectual piece. It was as though, in their Revolution against the King and England, they tried to cover about everything they could come up with since time began. While we give our forefathers a great deal of credit for the Revolutionary War and while many call it the war for independence, it was The Revolutionary War. I had a fifth great grandfather, Captain Charles Anderson, of the 11th Regiment, spend the winter of 1777-1778 with General George Washington at Valley Forge. Oh yes, Valley Forge was an encampment not a battle. Check with the Daughters of the America Revolution, (DAR), of which I can be a member, due to my ancestry, and you'll find it was, The Revolutionary War. Let's look at two points in the Constitution, when it was ratified on November 3, 1797, and in particular, I want to address only these two parts and they are stated verbatim. The Preamble to the Constitution: There are VII Original Articles, of the Constitution: The ensuing Amendments were also referred to as Articles of Amendment. From Article I, of the VII original Articles: Article I, Section 8, No. 12, states, To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of money to that Use shall be for no longer than two Years. It's interesting we've been at war for 10 years, starting in Iraq and Afghanistan, and we're still in Afghanistan. Then add to that, we're technically still at war with North Korea, as no treaty has been signed after 62 years, and there are still troops stationed in South Korea. Well, so much for a so a called police action Article I, Section 8, No. 13, states, To provide and maintain a Navy. In these first VII Original Articles, there is no mention of weaponry/guns. Then we come to Amendments to the Constitution, which follows, the Letter of Transmittal to the President of Congress, which by the way, paved the way for the ensuing Amendments (articles), the first 10 becoming, the Bill of Rights. Again, at this time, I'm only addressing the Second amendment/article. Amendment II, (an article), states: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. In essence, to maintain the security of a new nation, it was OK for people to bear arms for the security of a free state, through a well regulated militia. But now that we are not threatened with invasion of our nation/country, and have no militia, plus don't need arms to protect our nation/country/free state, we are using those weapons on each other. Interpret it any way you care to, but that's exactly what's happening. Under the false guise of needing guns, the NRA is trying to ram guns down our throats, and worse, even though Amendment II clearly refers to the need through a well regulated militia. Maybe the NRA still feels, the British are Coming, the British are Coming. What nonsense. Bill Ford Oak RunGovernment gotchaIf they cannot get it one way, they will get it another way, government bureaucrats that is: elected, and hired. This why it is worth spending time becoming government watchdogs. You might just spot something that grabs your attention, and do something about it. At least speak out, and voice your displeasure. There is always a small cadre of citizens who fancy themselves as possessed with bright ideas, and want the rest of us to pay for them. No matter how useless, wasteful, repetitive, or silly these ideas may be. Just such an incident occurred at the last County Commission meeting. (the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, they have printed agendas available, if you decide to attend). One particular item has been postponed until March 19. There will be a planning session to discuss the matter. This is where citizens can have input. What is it that has me doing loop-deloops? How about a 6 percent county tax on fuel? Does that grab your attention? Not certain how fuel is defined. Gasoline, or heating fuel? Surprise, surprise. Do you want or need a 6 percent tax on anything, especially on a necessity like fuel of any kind?? The time to gripe is before, not after. We sit here like dummies, we are treated like dummies. This why it is imperative we monitor our government at every level, local, state and federal. Having citizens attend meetings does make a difference. There are other bright ideas that have been noted, since our attendance at meetings. I cannot afford any more bright ideas. If we do not care, why should the bureaucrats care?. They can just keep taxing, and taxing merrily along. No one cares, to watch them. D.I. Larson Ocala, FlToo much in benefitsLast month, the Senate Budget Committee reported that in fiscal year 2011, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. household below the poverty line received $168 a day in government support. Whats the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day. To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $25 an hour. Are we all crazy or what? Pam Lee Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 BY RICH LOWRY Special to the CitizenSome guys have it, and some don't. I'm referring to that special quality that makes powerful institutions want to throw fistfuls of dollars at them in senseless acts of high-priced beneficence. Jack Lew has it like nobody's business. You might think the bespectacled treasury secretary nominee is just another brainy budget wonk and miss the animal magnetism that makes his employers lose all sense of financial proportion around him, paying him astronomical sums, forgiving his loans and granting him generous golden parachutes. Yes, Jack Lew is a rare talent -at the art of getting paid. He left the Clinton administration, where he served as director of the Office of Management and Budget, for what turned out to be the extremely lucrative field of nonprofit education. At New York University, he made more than $800,000 in 2002. According to his W-2, examined by staff on Capitol Hill, he made $1.2 million in total compensation in 2006. Even for Jack Lew, housing in New York City can be expensive. Not to worry. New York University provided GUEST COMMENTARY Treasury secretary nominee Jack Lew has some powerful friends him a loan for housing. The trouble with loans is that they have to be paid back. Not to worry. All is forgiven if you are Jack Lew, especially your loans. According to Lew, the university forgave the loan of some $1.4 million "in equal installments over five years." Upon leaving NYU, Lew received what he describes as "a one-time severance payment upon my departure." He wasn't fired, usually the occasion for severances. He simply left and got paid for the act of leaving. Hey, that's Jack Lew -he gets paid when he stays and gets paid when he goes. He went to Citigroup, which NYU had made its primary private lender for student loans in exchange for a cut of those loans. (Coincidences happen to everyone, including Jack Lew.) In 2008, as the bank nearly blew up and laid off one-seventh of its employees, Lew ran its disastrous Alternative Investments unit -and got paid $1.1 million. The bank had to be bailed out by the federal government, but it couldn't stop paying Jack Lew. The journalist Jonathan Weil of Bloomberg has unearthed Lew's contract at Citi. It said, reasonably enough, that he wouldn't get his "guaranteed incentive and retention award" if he left the company. It made an exception, though, if Lew left to get "a full-time high level position with the United States government or regulatory body." Jack Lew being Jack Lew, he left Citi to become deputy secretary of state, on his way to resuming his duties at OMB, then becoming the chief of staff to the president, and now secretary of the treasury. And, of course, he got paid. The cynics talk of crony capitalism. The scoffers hint of special favors for the politically connected. The good-government types worry about the unseemliness of a too-big-to-fail Wall Street bank giving one of its executives an incentive to become a high-ranking government official. Maybe they should give it a rest and simply stand back and marvel at the moneymaking machine that is Jack Lew. Lesser mortals criticize and cavil. He gets paid.Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

filled journey. The truck was allowed to stop only for gas and food while armed security guards and the museum curator escorted them on the entire trip. The Anderson Trucking Company used to put out a calendar every year but rather than hire professional photographers, they asked their drivers to contribute the photos. Frank and Sarah submitted many winning photographs which earned them bonuses. When retirement time came for the two, they had seen enough snow and ice in their lives so retirement could only be in Florida. Sarahs only requirement was that it had to be a home in a neighborhood. Country life was not for the people oriented Sarah. On advice from a friend in Vermont, she picked out two neighborhoods, On Top of the World and Cherrywood. Once she saw all the activities here at Cherrywood, her mind was made up. While they are relatively new to our community, Sarah and Frank have met many new friends and take pride in the various clubs and associations they belong to. Frank has a keen interest in billiards and foosball. He also enjoys walking; playing jeopardy and chess. He and Sarah have even been out to play Trivia here at Cherrywood. Sarah is occupied with caring for her mom who lives in Bronson. Sarah counts it as a privilege and honor to be able to look after her mother, taking her treats and making sure she gets the little things in life that are so important. When shes not at her moms, Sarah spends time at Bingo; the Accordion Club; the swimming pool; leads the Cribbage Club and plays Hand and Foot (A card game). She also loves to cook and quilting. Both Frank and Sarah are ardent Oakland Raider fans. Without going into detail, Sarah and Frank have both had to overcome some great difficulties in life. Their faith and love for each other has seen them through these hard times and continues to give them strength. To meet them you would never know they had a care in the world because of Sarahs beaming smile and Franks warm hand shake. They and those like them, make Cherrywood the terrific community that it is. From your reporterThis week, as most weeks, I am so very proud of my community. The Veterans Club spaghetti dinner fund raiser is sold out; Dick Richards of our Accordion Club had a near capacity crowd to enjoy the music; and our fantastic volunteers won a trophy raising funds for the Marion County Kidney Foundation. What an amazing bunch of people I have the privilege to associate with and have as friends.

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

Coming to life are the Overholser and Great Clips teams with four wins and three losses. The teams are beginning to meld together as they are slowly beginning to creep up on the other teams. Clutch plays and good hitting have helped them to come from behind and losses by the other teams have changed the dynamics of the league. The Cebert Wealth team has been struggling since the loss of one of their key players, with just 1 win and 6 losses. They are hoping that an addition to their team will help to generate some wins. Wise Way still holds on to first place, but has to start building some more wins, as they have only generated two wins and five losses since our last report. The Dr Dunn and Tee Pee Tire teams have made an impressive run at getting closer to the top with their five wins and two losses since last month. Its a toss-up now as to what team will be in first place by next month, with all gearing up to make a move. Any losing or winning streak is going to make a difference.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Unlike Sarah, Frank was born overseas in Heidelberg, Germany. He was an army brat whose father was serving with the U.S. Army. His mom was born in Worms, Germany, and he has a brother, Jon, who lives in Nashville, Tennessee. Because of his parents, Frank moved around a lot but their home town was where his father grew up in Terra Haute, Indiana. After graduating from high school he attended Ivy Technical College to study electronics. This was not enough action for the young man so he tried a different career path. For six years, Frank promoted Country/Western shows all over Texas. Quite a change of pace from electronics but it was exciting, if grueling, work. Traveling all over the state Frank got to meet many people both stars and ordinary folks. He enjoyed them all. When his contract expired up he left the business. Being used to traveling Frank found his calling in the trucking business. He became a long haul trucker with Anderson Trucking Service in Saint Cloud, Minnesota, in 1988. That move would change his life in more ways than one. Following her graduation from Montpelier High School Sarah enlisted in the U.S. Army. She trained at Fort Sam Houston in Texas and became a Medical Specialist. She would serve at Fort Ord, California, and at Fort McClellan, Alabama, during her tour of service. While serving in the Army, Sarah met and married her first husband. They moved to California and while in that state, they opened a day care facility and took in foster children. She proudly states that they cared for 261 foster youngsters during that time. Sarah has one son from that marriage, James, who is a graphic artist in Monterey, California. She beams with pride as she talks about him and mentioned that he is also a member of MENSA; a prestigious group of individuals with a superior IQ. Frank also has a son, Franklin Junior. He has two daughters, Alyssa who is eight and Addrionne who is 6. They live in Indianapolis, Indiana, and are the apple of Frank and Sarahs eye. Following the break up of her marriage, Sarah returned to the familiar surroundings of Vermont where she found work at Blue Cross/Blue Shield. She worked originally as a claims adjuster but ended her career in the organ transplant department disbursing and processing payments for live organ recipients. In 1991 she was out in her garden when she heard her CB radio going off. Sarahs Dad was a CB buff and she has always had a base station in her home. On the radio, a trucker was asking directions to a place near her home. She picked up the microphone and a relationship began. The directions were complicated and the construction zones plentiful, so Sarah offered to meet him and lead him down the right roads. She hopped in her car and met him in a nearby parking lot. After they arrived at their destination, Frank was not shy and jumped in Sarahs car. He took her to dinner to thank her for her help. Later they would watch the fireworks on the lawn of the Montpelier State House. The fireworks have never ended. Frank was based out of Jacksonville while working with the trucking company basically because his parents had retired there. After a little persuasion and hundreds of dollars in phone bills, Sarah took a course at the National Truck Training Company. It was then that the two became a team not only for life but in business also. During his career Frank and Sarah hauled anchor bolts to Oakland, Californias Coliseum; the engine for the Space Shuttle from Cape Kennedy to Rocketdyne Corp. in Canaga Park, California; and the most sensitive load of all; artifacts from the Mayan Inca era. Taking the priceless treasures of the Mayan/Inca collection from Washington, D.C., to Mexico City was a pressure CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 24 Frank and Sarah Blair.

I am not sure where that came from, and I am not exactly sure what it means. If I cannot eat my cake, whose cake can I eat? I think it all depends on how you present the cake in question. One of the things most important and strongly supervised in our home by the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has to do with the presence of such food items as cake. At times, I think she is overly obsessed with some diet phenomenon. I, on the other hand, am rather open to the delicacies of such dietary niceties as cakes. Like I said, there is a way to get around everything. My problem is, how can I have my cake and eat it too? Recently my wife took a weeks vacation to New York to visit her relatives. While she was away for that week, I was in charge of our little homestead. Whatever happened, happened because I did it. Whatever didnt happen, didnt happen because I didnt do it. I have a simple rule in life. Do what you like and have fun doing it. My wifes rule in life is, do exactly what I tell you and do it now! When she is not present in the home, especially for a weeklong duration, I am the one supervising the rules. And so, during that week my rules ruled. I will not say I had fun during that week, because I would not want that kind of information to be leaked to certain people. All during the week, I ate every kind of delicacy I could wrap my lips around. Not one shred of salad could be found in the house during the whole week. Salads were outlawed, desserts were in order. On the day my wife was scheduled to return from her New York trip, I had to go to school and pick up one of my granddaughters. She was sick and nobody else was available but Yours Truly. When I picked her up she did not look quite as sick as I would have figured, Heres how you can have your cake and eat it too but who am I to question the wisdom of a schoolteacher. We spent the entire afternoon eating lunch at McDonalds, shopping at the Dollar Tree and just having a rip snorting time of our life. If this is sick, may I be sick every day of my life. As a supposedly sick 7-year-old, her energy ran her grandpa firmly into the ground. I am not sure I ever had that much energy. It was great to spend an afternoon with one of my granddaughters. Usually this is the privilege of grandma and so I felt honored to take her place for one afternoon. Toward the end of the afternoon my granddaughter said, When will grandma get home? I calculated it and responded by telling her that according to the schedule she should be getting home around 6 oclock. As that information saturated her little brain she then said, Well, can we have a surprise party for grandma? Off to the store we went. Things needed for purchasing to put together the surprise welcome home party for grandma. There were cards to purchase. I say cards because she could not choose between two cards and so we decided, or rather I should say, she decided to get both of them. Women start early in life, dont they. There were ribbons to buy and then she saw a nice bouquet of roses. We bought the roses. All this time I was thinking about a special project I had in mind. That special project took the form of a special welcome home cake. I took my granddaughter over to the case where all of the cakes were displayed and invited her to pick out one that suited her. As far as I am concerned, a cake is a cake and my favorite cake is the one I am eating at the time. She picked out a beautiful cake and we went to the checkout counter and paid for our wonderful purchases. Now it was home to set up our little welcome home party for grandma. My granddaughter spent quite a bit of time drawing pictures on the inside of the cards while I paid special attention to how to display the cake. I was sure that grandma, who usually does not approve of cake coming into our home, would not disapprove of this cake if we presented it right. When grandma walked in the door, we yelled Surprise and boy was she surprised. Then came the time for us to present the cake and eat it as well. Whoever says you cant have your cake and eat it too needs to sit down and talk with me. I have found a wonderful way of having my cake and eating it too without the sneering disapproval of You Know Who. I like what the Bible says. There has no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it (1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV). God always provides the cake and then invites us to eat it with Him.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Wine tasting party While this event wont take place until May 14 there is no doubt in my mind that before April Fools Day, tickets will be gone. PRP Wine International is sponsoring this event that consists of two sessions of sampling various wines. The first show starts at 5:30 p.m. with predominantly sweet wines being offered with a couple of dry wines thrown in. The second show will start at 7:30 p.m. and feature predominantly dry wines with a couple of sweet dessert wines also being presented. There is no cost for this demonstration but seating is limited to 50 people per show. You can easily see why I said you should get your tickets early. Your free ticket will not only insure that you have a place at the wine tasting table but will also be used to award a door prize. Wine complements any occasion and knowing what to look for is always an asset. Come out and enjoy this learning experience with your neighbors and impress your friends at your next party.Spotlight on ExcellenceEach month we feature a person or persons who have an interesting past; a promising future or who have made a contribution to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. This week is no exception as we welcome relative new comers Sarah and Frank Blair. Sarah was originally from Hardwick, Vermont, but grew up in Montpelier with five brothers and sisters. While six children may seem like quite a few, her maternal grandmother had 18. She has 96 first cousins and she keeps in touch with every one of them. Now thats a family. Born Sarah Leslie, one of the founders of Hardwick is an ancestor of Sarahs and she can trace her lineage back to the one of the four families who first incorporated the town.

The Matzahs will be distributed to doctors, lawyers members of the community or upon request. Passover, celebrated this year from Monday Night, March 25, until after nightfall on Tuesday, April 2, the exodus of the Jews from Egypt some 3,000 years ago. Directed by God to leave Egypt hastily, the people of Israel could not wait for their dough to rise, and thus ate unleavened crackers called Matzah. To celebrate the Exodus, Jews gather for festive Seder dinners on March 25 and 26, and abstain from eating, or even owning or benefiting from, any leavened substance such as bread and pasta. Shmurah literally means watched Matzah. From the moment the wheat is harvested, until the time it is baked, the ingredients are carefully watched to ensure that they do not come into contact with anything that could cause them to become leavened, which would be prohibited on Passover. Shmurah Matzahs are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, similar to the Matzahs that the Jews ate when leavingFriday, March 8, 2013~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Religion SEERELIGION, PAGE16 Dawn was just breaking and the air was cold and chill but the clubhouse at Cherrywood was bustling with excitement. By ones; twos and more, people began to filter in. All were wearing coats; gloves; hats and other winter gear to keep the cold out but there were smiles on their faces and a spring in their step. Saturday was the Marion County Kidney Foundations Kicking Kidney Disease 5K run and our folks were ready for it. More than triple the number of participants from the year before took part. Holly Bragdon, coordinator for the event had done a magnificent job of motivating and mobilizing everyone. Skip Smith and his wife Trude provided the inspiration for this years run and in their honor, our team was registered as the Cherrywood Skippers. A total of 37 people signed up to take part in the event with several others donating to the cause. The Marion County Kidney Foundation is a totally volunteer organization that supports services and education for the citizens of our county. Their annual 5K run/walk held at the Florida Greenway Trailhead is their main fund raising event. Sponsors included but were not limited too; Winn Dixie; TD Bank; Marion County Hospice; and Taylor College. After arriving at the race site, the participants enjoyed free coffee and pastries provided by Dunkin Donuts. Pictures were taken and registration numbers pinned on and then it was time to begin. With the blast of a siren, the runners and walkers were off. When it was over, Joe Gignac had taken 3rd place and Dick Francis had won 4th place. Total time for all of our people ranged from 33 minutes to one hour and fifteen minutes in an age group that included 33 years of age to 81 years old. On top of that, the Skippers won the Team Spirit Trophy which will be displayed proudly in our clubhouse. People may not realize the sacrifice of our participants to do what they did. Getting up before daylight in cold weather; driving a half hour to be out in the weather and then walking or running the course; all of that takes a lot of guts and a huge heart. That is the caliber of people we have here in our community. This years participants were, event coordinator and team captain Holly Bragdon; David Bragdon; Mary Hamblen: Gail Lingham; Marty Dean; Eve Houghtaling; T.T.; Ed and Michele Maculewicz; Erica Hogan; Kathy Robson; Bonnie Clark; Richard Frances; Rich Hurley; Ruth Hurley; Jenny Arturi; Shirley Mercer; Joan Siegel; Marilyn Wood; Louise Tilly; Aprile Guglielmi; Diane DAlessandro; Sandee Spencer; Donna James; Mick James; Joe Gignac; Pia Dean; Sandra Brotherhood; Bill Brotherhood (with a cane); Frank Blair; and Ann Bardack. Those who registered but were unable to take part were Trude & Skip Smith; Chick Spencer; Joanne Perri; Genevieve Downs; and Robbi Febbo. To Holly and all of those who took part, congratulations and a huge Thank you. Your efforts have made life better for so many people. You should be proud of yourselves just as your community is proud of you. Accordion ClubDick Richards and company again brought a huge crowd out on Wednesday the 27th of February. The near capacity crowd was treated to the extraordinary accordion playing talents of Dick, Bob Mace; Bill Cahill on drums; trumpet player Richie Sturtevant and more as they joined together with other musicians to entertain and amaze the guests. Playing a wide variety of music from polkas to pop hits; there were solos; duets; and combos of every type.

His name is Carl VanDerhith and between the two of them, there can be nothing but good things in the future for the club. The next Accordion Club will meet on Wednesday, March 27 at 5:30 p.m. We recommend that you get there as early Kidney Society 5K draws spirited crowd from Cherrywood Cherrywood John Everlove The Cherrywood Skippers at the Kicking Kidney Disease 5K event.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Egypt over 3,000 years ago. It is therefore appropriate to use Shmurah Matzah during Passover, at least on each of the two Seder nights. The local effort is part of a global campaign by the Chabad-Lubavitch movement to increase holiday awareness and participation. According to estimates provided by Lubavitch World Headquarters in Brooklyn, New York, over four million hand-baked Shmurah Matzahs will be distributed by the Chabad movement this year. In addition, millions of Passover guides in 17 languages will educate people on the meaning and practices of the holiday. The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, taught that no solitary Jewish person ought to be left out. Every Jew, regardless of their background, affiliation or even location, should have access to the provisions they need to celebrate Passover, said Rabbi Yossi Hecht from the Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish Center of Marion County. There are Chabad emissaries across the globe are working feverishly to provide Jews with Matzahs, holiday guides and much more, To learn more about Passover, make reservations for the seder, or for further information, please contact Rabbi Yossi or Chanie at 352-291-2218 or email info@jewishmarion.org or visit our website at www.JewishMarion.org.Friendship Baptist ChurchDont forget to set your clocks ahead one hour as Daylight Saving Time begins.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Whats new at Spruce Creek? Holy smokes! We are just tearing it up these days!!! Between the new band forming for the jam session in April, and the new players for shuffleboard, the joint is just jumpin! Upcoming we are having our St. Patricks Day dinner and party. It will be held on March 23 at 6 p.m. Of course we will be having corned beef. The entertainment will be by George. Tickets will be sold on March 13 and 14 at 1 p.m. in the clubhouse. Thanks to our welcoming invitation, shuffle board is increasing in numbers, even in this cold weather. CraftsOne of our ongoing clubs in the clubhouse is our craft making pow wow. The ladies (and men) get together on Wednesdays at 9 a.m. Now if you are NOT crafty, (like me), there is hope for you. Marlene Dorner (352-861-8623) says even a kid could do a lot of the items they are working on. That does include all of us. Currently, they are working on St. Patricks wreath made from thin foam, and for Easter they are making door knob hangers, and an egg wreath. Sounds like fun, doesnt it? Marlene says that the group of crafter is a happy bunch that enjoy the company of others and good conversation. They welcome new members with open arms, and often you can bring an item you are working on to the club, as well. I say, showing off feels good once in a while.Ping pongOkay, so whats wrong with this picture? Beautiful ping pong tables, and only a few people to play? Ben Medolla tells us that ping pong is great exercise, not very demanding, and all levels of players are welcome. That makes me want to play! So heres the challenge. Call Ben at 352-873-2919, set up a time to play, and Ill come and play too. But just be ready to be whopped, because ping pong is my specialty! Everyone is welcome, there are no pros allowed, and its just for fun. Dont worry, I wont tell anybody that you got whopped by a girl, either.BingoWhat a surprise I had when I spoke with Pauline Shannon about Bingo! Did you know the jackpot is $250! YIKES! I am so there! It is played on Tuesday nights at the clubhouse. The early bird time is 6:30, and the regular games start at 6:45. To play all evening it is only $8! All the money that is taken in, is given back to the players minus just 10 percent. That sounds like a good deal to me. Pauline says that Bingo is fun, you can socialize, and it sure feels great when you win! Besides, the jackpots have been terrific! During the middle of the games, there is an intermission when you can purchase homemade cakes, pies, and drinks. They play on average 25 games and it stops at 9. It is open to the public, and all ages are welcome. You may call Pauline for more information at 352-854-7578.In My OpinionThe weather will be warming up soon, so it will be time to get out and barbecue and play out in the sunshine. That makes it a perfect time to meet and greet any newcomers to your area of the community, or make the acquaintance of someone youd like to meet. We all love our community, and in order to make it the inviting and close knit place it should be, we need to reach out to our friends and neighbors. Drop off a meal to someone that is elderly, say hi, and smile at those you pass on the street. Wave as you drive by a walker. Try it soon, it feels really good when you do!Ann Brennan can be reached at nickevan7@hotmail.com or at 352-342-9466.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com The worlds largest motorcycle event, Daytona Bike Week, begins today at Daytona Beach with motorcycle races at the Speedway, numerous bike shows, concerts, and contests of all kinds. Ending on March 17, the week is one wild show of motorcyclists antics and their motorcycles. Todays Pun Alley takes the cycle path to Daytona for some two-wheeled fun.The heart of the matterA mechanic was removing a cylinder head from a motorcycles motor when a heart surgeon came into his shop. The mechanic shouted, Hey Doc can I ask you a question? The famous surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic. The mechanic said, So Doc, look at this engine. I also can open hearts, take valves out, fix them, put in new parts and when I finish this will work just like a new one. So how come I get paid a pittance and you get the really big money, when you and I are basically doing the same work? The surgeon smiled and said to the mechanic, Try doing it with the engine running. Fast oneA motorcycle enthusiast complained that he couldnt decide whether to buy a bike with high top speed and poor acceleration, or one with lots of torque and fast acceleration, but a poor top speed. Eventually he decided on the second one, because it cost a lot less. After all, torque is cheap.Keep it upA young man walked into our insurance office to purchase coverage for his new motorcycle. Only one question confused him. Do you have a lien holder on the vehicle? Ive got a kick stand, the prospect replied. Is that the same thing?Short ridesA motorcycle rider with bad teeth is the leader of the plaque. When Ruth fell off the motorcycle her boyfriend drove on ruthlessly. A pig on a motorcycle is called a road hog. Why are people who ride motorcycles called bikers and people who ride bikes called cyclists? If Santa rode a motorcycle, it would be a Holly Davidson. An Asian company will be making cheap knockoffs of American-made motorcycles. They will call them Hardly Davidson. The motorcycle fell over because it is two tired.Cliff notesThe reporter asked, Is it true you drove a motorcycle off a cliff and didnt get hurt? The daredevil replied, Nah! It was just a bluff.Just rewardYoure trying to bribe an officer of the law! Know what Im going to give you for it? A receipt?An Indian storyThe old Indian chief called for the two bravest warriors in the tribe and said, Running Buffalo, Falling Rocks, you go and seek buffalo skins. Whichever of you returns with the most skins will become my right hand man and will be the next chief. A month later, Running Buffalo came back with nearly a hundred pelts. Sadly, Falling Rocks never returned. The tribe organized a search and looked everywhere, but they couldnt find the missing brave anywhere. Today, as you drive through the West, you can see the evidence of the love and devotion the tribe had for this lost warrior. Throughout the highways, on interstates and side roads, you can still see their signs that say, Watch for Falling Rocks. Pardon meTwo young fellows from the southern mountains were walking along Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington when the roar of motorcycles escorting a black limousine startled them. Someone called out, Its the president. Wonder what hes done now? asked one of the mountaineers.Daytona riderYou were going 100 miles per hour, reprimanded the judge. Werent you afraid of hitting an automobile? What? On the sidewalk?Poor judgmentA woman was out driving with her husband. She was speeding along about fifty when a motorcycle cop appeared alongside and indicated for her to pull over. The cop looked at her and said, Hmmm. Im going to put you down for fifty-five. She turned to her husband. See! I told you this hat makes me look old.I know I wouldnt mind wearing a hat that makes me look like fifty-five. Dick spent his productive years working on the design of telephone switching systems. One of his hobbies was motorcycles, having had seven different bikes, one of which had a sidecar. But he never had more that three at any one time.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Whats new at Spruce Creek? Holy smokes! We are just tearing it up these days!!! Between the new band forming for the jam session in April, and the new players for shuffleboard, the joint is just jumpin! Upcoming we are having our St. Patricks Day dinner and party. It will be held on March 23 at 6 p.m. Of course we will be having corned beef. The entertainment will be by George. Tickets will be sold on March 13 and 14 at 1 p.m. in the clubhouse. Thanks to our welcoming invitation, shuffle board is increasing in numbers, even in this cold weather. CraftsOne of our ongoing clubs in the clubhouse is our craft making pow wow. The ladies (and men) get together on Wednesdays at 9 a.m. Now if you are NOT crafty, (like me), there is hope for you. Marlene Dorner (352-861-8623) says even a kid could do a lot of the items they are working on. That does include all of us. Currently, they are working on St. Patricks wreath made from thin foam, and for Easter they are making door knob hangers, and an egg wreath. Sounds like fun, doesnt it? Marlene says that the group of crafter is a happy bunch that enjoy the company of others and good conversation. They welcome new members with open arms, and often you can bring an item you are working on to the club, as well. I say, showing off feels good once in a while.Ping pongOkay, so whats wrong with this picture? Beautiful ping pong tables, and only a few people to play? Ben Medolla tells us that ping pong is great exercise, not very demanding, and all levels of players are welcome. That makes me want to play! So heres the challenge. Call Ben at 352-873-2919, set up a time to play, and Ill come and play too. But just be ready to be whopped, because ping pong is my specialty! Everyone is welcome, there are no pros allowed, and its just for fun. Dont worry, I wont tell anybody that you got whopped by a girl, either.BingoWhat a surprise I had when I spoke with Pauline Shannon about Bingo! Did you know the jackpot is $250! YIKES! I am so there! It is played on Tuesday nights at the clubhouse. The early bird time is 6:30, and the regular games start at 6:45. To play all evening it is only $8! All the money that is taken in, is given back to the players minus just 10 percent. That sounds like a good deal to me. Pauline says that Bingo is fun, you can socialize, and it sure feels great when you win! Besides, the jackpots have been terrific! During the middle of the games, there is an intermission when you can purchase homemade cakes, pies, and drinks. They play on average 25 games and it stops at 9. It is open to the public, and all ages are welcome. You may call Pauline for more information at 352-854-7578.In My OpinionThe weather will be warming up soon, so it will be time to get out and barbecue and play out in the sunshine. That makes it a perfect time to meet and greet any newcomers to your area of the community, or make the acquaintance of someone youd like to meet. We all love our community, and in order to make it the inviting and close knit place it should be, we need to reach out to our friends and neighbors.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Egypt over 3,000 years ago. It is therefore appropriate to use Shmurah Matzah during Passover, at least on each of the two Seder nights. The local effort is part of a global campaign by the Chabad-Lubavitch movement to increase holiday awareness and participation. According to estimates provided by Lubavitch World Headquarters in Brooklyn, New York, over four million hand-baked Shmurah Matzahs will be distributed by the Chabad movement this year. In addition, millions of Passover guides in 17 languages will educate people on the meaning and practices of the holiday. The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, taught that no solitary Jewish person ought to be left out. Every Jew, regardless of their background, affiliation or even location, should have access to the provisions they need to celebrate Passover, said Rabbi Yossi Hecht from the Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish Center of Marion County. There are Chabad emissaries across the globe are working feverishly to provide Jews with Matzahs, holiday guides and much more, To learn more about Passover, make reservations for the seder, or for further information, please contact Rabbi Yossi or Chanie at 352-291-2218 or email info@jewishmarion.org or visit our website at www.JewishMarion.org.Friendship Baptist ChurchDont forget to set your clocks ahead one hour as Daylight Saving Time begins.

The Matzahs will be distributed to doctors, lawyers members of the community or upon request. Passover, celebrated this year from Monday Night, March 25, until after nightfall on Tuesday, April 2, the exodus of the Jews from Egypt some 3,000 years ago. Directed by God to leave Egypt hastily, the people of Israel could not wait for their dough to rise, and thus ate unleavened crackers called Matzah. To celebrate the Exodus, Jews gather for festive Seder dinners on March 25 and 26, and abstain from eating, or even owning or benefiting from, any leavened substance such as bread and pasta. Shmurah literally means watched Matzah. From the moment the wheat is harvested, until the time it is baked, the ingredients are carefully watched to ensure that they do not come into contact with anything that could cause them to become leavened, which would be prohibited on Passover. Shmurah Matzahs are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, similar to the Matzahs that the Jews ate when leavingFriday, March 8, 2013~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Religion SEERELIGION, PAGE16 Dawn was just breaking and the air was cold and chill but the clubhouse at Cherrywood was bustling with excitement. By ones; twos and more, people began to filter in. All were wearing coats; gloves; hats and other winter gear to keep the cold out but there were smiles on their faces and a spring in their step. Saturday was the Marion County Kidney Foundations Kicking Kidney Disease 5K run and our folks were ready for it. More than triple the number of participants from the year before took part. Holly Bragdon, coordinator for the event had done a magnificent job of motivating and mobilizing everyone. Skip Smith and his wife Trude provided the inspiration for this years run and in their honor, our team was registered as the Cherrywood Skippers. A total of 37 people signed up to take part in the event with several others donating to the cause. The Marion County Kidney Foundation is a totally volunteer organization that supports services and education for the citizens of our county. Their annual 5K run/walk held at the Florida Greenway Trailhead is their main fund raising event. Sponsors included but were not limited too; Winn Dixie; TD Bank; Marion County Hospice; and Taylor College. After arriving at the race site, the participants enjoyed free coffee and pastries provided by Dunkin Donuts. Pictures were taken and registration numbers pinned on and then it was time to begin. With the blast of a siren, the runners and walkers were off. When it was over, Joe Gignac had taken 3rd place and Dick Francis had won 4th place. Total time for all of our people ranged from 33 minutes to one hour and fifteen minutes in an age group that included 33 years of age to 81 years old. On top of that, the Skippers won the Team Spirit Trophy which will be displayed proudly in our clubhouse. People may not realize the sacrifice of our participants to do what they did. Getting up before daylight in cold weather; driving a half hour to be out in the weather and then walking or running the course; all of that takes a lot of guts and a huge heart. That is the caliber of people we have here in our community. This years participants were, event coordinator and team captain Holly Bragdon; David Bragdon; Mary Hamblen: Gail Lingham; Marty Dean; Eve Houghtaling; T.T.; Ed and Michele Maculewicz; Erica Hogan; Kathy Robson; Bonnie Clark; Richard Frances; Rich Hurley; Ruth Hurley; Jenny Arturi; Shirley Mercer; Joan Siegel; Marilyn Wood; Louise Tilly; Aprile Guglielmi; Diane DAlessandro; Sandee Spencer; Donna James; Mick James; Joe Gignac; Pia Dean; Sandra Brotherhood; Bill Brotherhood (with a cane); Frank Blair; and Ann Bardack. Those who registered but were unable to take part were Trude & Skip Smith; Chick Spencer; Joanne Perri; Genevieve Downs; and Robbi Febbo. To Holly and all of those who took part, congratulations and a huge Thank you. Your efforts have made life better for so many people. You should be proud of yourselves just as your community is proud of you. Accordion ClubDick Richards and company again brought a huge crowd out on Wednesday the 27th of February.

The second show will start at 7:30 p.m. and feature predominantly dry wines with a couple of sweet dessert wines also being presented.

This week is no exception as we welcome relative new comers Sarah and Frank Blair. Sarah was originally from Hardwick, Vermont, but grew up in Montpelier with five brothers and sisters. While six children may seem like quite a few, her maternal grandmother had 18. She has 96 first cousins and she keeps in touch with every one of them. Now thats a family. Born Sarah Leslie, one of the founders of Hardwick is an ancestor of Sarahs and she can trace her lineage back to the one of the four families who first incorporated the town.

I am not sure where that came from, and I am not exactly sure what it means. If I cannot eat my cake, whose cake can I eat? I think it all depends on how you present the cake in question. One of the things most important and strongly supervised in our home by the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has to do with the presence of such food items as cake. At times, I think she is overly obsessed with some diet phenomenon. I, on the other hand, am rather open to the delicacies of such dietary niceties as cakes. Like I said, there is a way to get around everything. My problem is, how can I have my cake and eat it too? Recently my wife took a weeks vacation to New York to visit her relatives. While she was away for that week, I was in charge of our little homestead. Whatever happened, happened because I did it. Whatever didnt happen, didnt happen because I didnt do it. I have a simple rule in life. Do what you like and have fun doing it. My wifes rule in life is, do exactly what I tell you and do it now! When she is not present in the home, especially for a weeklong duration, I am the one supervising the rules. And so, during that week my rules ruled. I will not say I had fun during that week, because I would not want that kind of information to be leaked to certain people. All during the week, I ate every kind of delicacy I could wrap my lips around. Not one shred of salad could be found in the house during the whole week. Salads were outlawed, desserts were in order. On the day my wife was scheduled to return from her New York trip, I had to go to school and pick up one of my granddaughters. She was sick and nobody else was available but Yours Truly. When I picked her up she did not look quite as sick as I would have figured, Heres how you can have your cake and eat it too but who am I to question the wisdom of a schoolteacher. We spent the entire afternoon eating lunch at McDonalds, shopping at the Dollar Tree and just having a rip snorting time of our life. If this is sick, may I be sick every day of my life. As a supposedly sick 7-year-old, her energy ran her grandpa firmly into the ground. I am not sure I ever had that much energy. It was great to spend an afternoon with one of my granddaughters. Usually this is the privilege of grandma and so I felt honored to take her place for one afternoon. Toward the end of the afternoon my granddaughter said, When will grandma get home? I calculated it and responded by telling her that according to the schedule she should be getting home around 6 oclock. As that information saturated her little brain she then said, Well, can we have a surprise party for grandma? Off to the store we went. Things needed for purchasing to put together the surprise welcome home party for grandma. There were cards to purchase. I say cards because she could not choose between two cards and so we decided, or rather I should say, she decided to get both of them. Women start early in life, dont they. There were ribbons to buy and then she saw a nice bouquet of roses. We bought the roses. All this time I was thinking about a special project I had in mind. That special project took the form of a special welcome home cake. I took my granddaughter over to the case where all of the cakes were displayed and invited her to pick out one that suited her. As far as I am concerned, a cake is a cake and my favorite cake is the one I am eating at the time. She picked out a beautiful cake and we went to the checkout counter and paid for our wonderful purchases. Now it was home to set up our little welcome home party for grandma. My granddaughter spent quite a bit of time drawing pictures on the inside of the cards while I paid special attention to how to display the cake. I was sure that grandma, who usually does not approve of cake coming into our home, would not disapprove of this cake if we presented it right. When grandma walked in the door, we yelled Surprise and boy was she surprised. Then came the time for us to present the cake and eat it as well. Whoever says you cant have your cake and eat it too needs to sit down and talk with me. I have found a wonderful way of having my cake and eating it too without the sneering disapproval of You Know Who. I like what the Bible says. There has no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it (1 Corinthians 10:13 KJV). God always provides the cake and then invites us to eat it with Him.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Unlike Sarah, Frank was born overseas in Heidelberg, Germany. He was an army brat whose father was serving with the U.S. Army. His mom was born in Worms, Germany, and he has a brother, Jon, who lives in Nashville, Tennessee. Because of his parents, Frank moved around a lot but their home town was where his father grew up in Terra Haute, Indiana. After graduating from high school he attended Ivy Technical College to study electronics. This was not enough action for the young man so he tried a different career path. For six years, Frank promoted Country/Western shows all over Texas. Quite a change of pace from electronics but it was exciting, if grueling, work. Traveling all over the state Frank got to meet many people both stars and ordinary folks. He enjoyed them all. When his contract expired up he left the business. Being used to traveling Frank found his calling in the trucking business. He became a long haul trucker with Anderson Trucking Service in Saint Cloud, Minnesota, in 1988. That move would change his life in more ways than one. Following her graduation from Montpelier High School Sarah enlisted in the U.S. Army. She trained at Fort Sam Houston in Texas and became a Medical Specialist. She would serve at Fort Ord, California, and at Fort McClellan, Alabama, during her tour of service. While serving in the Army, Sarah met and married her first husband. They moved to California and while in that state, they opened a day care facility and took in foster children. She proudly states that they cared for 261 foster youngsters during that time. Sarah has one son from that marriage, James, who is a graphic artist in Monterey, California. She beams with pride as she talks about him and mentioned that he is also a member of MENSA; a prestigious group of individuals with a superior IQ. Frank also has a son, Franklin Junior. He has two daughters, Alyssa who is eight and Addrionne who is 6. They live in Indianapolis, Indiana, and are the apple of Frank and Sarahs eye. Following the break up of her marriage, Sarah returned to the familiar surroundings of Vermont where she found work at Blue Cross/Blue Shield. She worked originally as a claims adjuster but ended her career in the organ transplant department disbursing and processing payments for live organ recipients. In 1991 she was out in her garden when she heard her CB radio going off. Sarahs Dad was a CB buff and she has always had a base station in her home. On the radio, a trucker was asking directions to a place near her home. She picked up the microphone and a relationship began. The directions were complicated and the construction zones plentiful, so Sarah offered to meet him and lead him down the right roads. She hopped in her car and met him in a nearby parking lot. After they arrived at their destination, Frank was not shy and jumped in Sarahs car. He took her to dinner to thank her for her help. Later they would watch the fireworks on the lawn of the Montpelier State House. The fireworks have never ended. Frank was based out of Jacksonville while working with the trucking company basically because his parents had retired there. After a little persuasion and hundreds of dollars in phone bills, Sarah took a course at the National Truck Training Company. It was then that the two became a team not only for life but in business also. During his career Frank and Sarah hauled anchor bolts to Oakland, Californias Coliseum; the engine for the Space Shuttle from Cape Kennedy to Rocketdyne Corp. in Canaga Park, California; and the most sensitive load of all; artifacts from the Mayan Inca era. Taking the priceless treasures of the Mayan/Inca collection from Washington, D.C., to Mexico City was a pressure CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 24 Frank and Sarah Blair.

filled journey. The truck was allowed to stop only for gas and food while armed security guards and the museum curator escorted them on the entire trip. The Anderson Trucking Company used to put out a calendar every year but rather than hire professional photographers, they asked their drivers to contribute the photos. Frank and Sarah submitted many winning photographs which earned them bonuses. When retirement time came for the two, they had seen enough snow and ice in their lives so retirement could only be in Florida. Sarahs only requirement was that it had to be a home in a neighborhood. Country life was not for the people oriented Sarah. On advice from a friend in Vermont, she picked out two neighborhoods, On Top of the World and Cherrywood. Once she saw all the activities here at Cherrywood, her mind was made up. While they are relatively new to our community, Sarah and Frank have met many new friends and take pride in the various clubs and associations they belong to. Frank has a keen interest in billiards and foosball. He also enjoys walking; playing jeopardy and chess. He and Sarah have even been out to play Trivia here at Cherrywood. Sarah is occupied with caring for her mom who lives in Bronson. Sarah counts it as a privilege and honor to be able to look after her mother, taking her treats and making sure she gets the little things in life that are so important. When shes not at her moms, Sarah spends time at Bingo; the Accordion Club; the swimming pool; leads the Cribbage Club and plays Hand and Foot (A card game). She also loves to cook and quilting. Both Frank and Sarah are ardent Oakland Raider fans. Without going into detail, Sarah and Frank have both had to overcome some great difficulties in life. Their faith and love for each other has seen them through these hard times and continues to give them strength. To meet them you would never know they had a care in the world because of Sarahs beaming smile and Franks warm hand shake. They and those like them, make Cherrywood the terrific community that it is. From your reporterThis week, as most weeks, I am so very proud of my community. The Veterans Club spaghetti dinner fund raiser is sold out; Dick Richards of our Accordion Club had a near capacity crowd to enjoy the music; and our fantastic volunteers won a trophy raising funds for the Marion County Kidney Foundation. What an amazing bunch of people I have the privilege to associate with and have as friends.

Love kids? Our Reading Volunteer Group is looking for enthusiastic people to visit two of our local elementary schools and read to the lower grades. It would only take up about an hour of your time, six mornings a year each (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) at Sunrise and Marion Oaks Elementary schools. The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you are escorted by two of the children to their classroom. Having the children around you engaged and anticipating the next page, discussing the book, sharing the pictures, and just being with them is a truly rewarding experience. Through our efforts we hope to instill in them a love of reading while opening up new horizons and adventures in the wonderful world of books.

Coming to life are the Overholser and Great Clips teams with four wins and three losses. The teams are beginning to meld together as they are slowly beginning to creep up on the other teams. Clutch plays and good hitting have helped them to come from behind and losses by the other teams have changed the dynamics of the league. The Cebert Wealth team has been struggling since the loss of one of their key players, with just 1 win and 6 losses. They are hoping that an addition to their team will help to generate some wins. Wise Way still holds on to first place, but has to start building some more wins, as they have only generated two wins and five losses since our last report. The Dr Dunn and Tee Pee Tire teams have made an impressive run at getting closer to the top with their five wins and two losses since last month. Its a toss-up now as to what team will be in first place by next month, with all gearing up to make a move. Any losing or winning streak is going to make a difference.

Friday, March 8, 2013~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, March 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com If you delve into the Constitution, as I've done, and I'm only going to address only two points here, you will find the men who wrote it were probably self serving and more concerned with a revolution and not qualified to write an intellectual piece. It was as though, in their Revolution against the King and England, they tried to cover about everything they could come up with since time began. While we give our forefathers a great deal of credit for the Revolutionary War and while many call it the war for independence, it was The Revolutionary War. I had a fifth great grandfather, Captain Charles Anderson, of the 11th Regiment, spend the winter of 1777-1778 with General George Washington at Valley Forge. Oh yes, Valley Forge was an encampment not a battle. Check with the Daughters of the America Revolution, (DAR), of which I can be a member, due to my ancestry, and you'll find it was, The Revolutionary War. Let's look at two points in the Constitution, when it was ratified on November 3, 1797, and in particular, I want to address only these two parts and they are stated verbatim. The Preamble to the Constitution: There are VII Original Articles, of the Constitution: The ensuing Amendments were also referred to as Articles of Amendment. From Article I, of the VII original Articles: Article I, Section 8, No. 12, states, To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of money to that Use shall be for no longer than two Years. It's interesting we've been at war for 10 years, starting in Iraq and Afghanistan, and we're still in Afghanistan. Then add to that, we're technically still at war with North Korea, as no treaty has been signed after 62 years, and there are still troops stationed in South Korea. Well, so much for a so a called police action Article I, Section 8, No. 13, states, To provide and maintain a Navy. In these first VII Original Articles, there is no mention of weaponry/guns. Then we come to Amendments to the Constitution, which follows, the Letter of Transmittal to the President of Congress, which by the way, paved the way for the ensuing Amendments (articles), the first 10 becoming, the Bill of Rights. Again, at this time, I'm only addressing the Second amendment/article. Amendment II, (an article), states: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. In essence, to maintain the security of a new nation, it was OK for people to bear arms for the security of a free state, through a well regulated militia. But now that we are not threatened with invasion of our nation/country, and have no militia, plus don't need arms to protect our nation/country/free state, we are using those weapons on each other. Interpret it any way you care to, but that's exactly what's happening. Under the false guise of needing guns, the NRA is trying to ram guns down our throats, and worse, even though Amendment II clearly refers to the need through a well regulated militia. Maybe the NRA still feels, the British are Coming, the British are Coming. What nonsense. Bill Ford Oak RunGovernment gotchaIf they cannot get it one way, they will get it another way, government bureaucrats that is: elected, and hired. This why it is worth spending time becoming government watchdogs. You might just spot something that grabs your attention, and do something about it. At least speak out, and voice your displeasure. There is always a small cadre of citizens who fancy themselves as possessed with bright ideas, and want the rest of us to pay for them. No matter how useless, wasteful, repetitive, or silly these ideas may be. Just such an incident occurred at the last County Commission meeting. (the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, they have printed agendas available, if you decide to attend). One particular item has been postponed until March 19. There will be a planning session to discuss the matter. This is where citizens can have input. What is it that has me doing loop-deloops? How about a 6 percent county tax on fuel? Does that grab your attention? Not certain how fuel is defined. Gasoline, or heating fuel? Surprise, surprise. Do you want or need a 6 percent tax on anything, especially on a necessity like fuel of any kind?? The time to gripe is before, not after. We sit here like dummies, we are treated like dummies. This why it is imperative we monitor our government at every level, local, state and federal. Having citizens attend meetings does make a difference. There are other bright ideas that have been noted, since our attendance at meetings. I cannot afford any more bright ideas. If we do not care, why should the bureaucrats care?. They can just keep taxing, and taxing merrily along. No one cares, to watch them. D.I. Larson Ocala, FlToo much in benefitsLast month, the Senate Budget Committee reported that in fiscal year 2011, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. household below the poverty line received $168 a day in government support. Whats the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day. To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $25 an hour. Are we all crazy or what? Pam Lee Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 BY RICH LOWRY Special to the CitizenSome guys have it, and some don't. I'm referring to that special quality that makes powerful institutions want to throw fistfuls of dollars at them in senseless acts of high-priced beneficence. Jack Lew has it like nobody's business. You might think the bespectacled treasury secretary nominee is just another brainy budget wonk and miss the animal magnetism that makes his employers lose all sense of financial proportion around him, paying him astronomical sums, forgiving his loans and granting him generous golden parachutes. Yes, Jack Lew is a rare talent -at the art of getting paid. He left the Clinton administration, where he served as director of the Office of Management and Budget, for what turned out to be the extremely lucrative field of nonprofit education. At New York University, he made more than $800,000 in 2002. According to his W-2, examined by staff on Capitol Hill, he made $1.2 million in total compensation in 2006. Even for Jack Lew, housing in New York City can be expensive. Not to worry. New York University provided GUEST COMMENTARY Treasury secretary nominee Jack Lew has some powerful friends him a loan for housing. The trouble with loans is that they have to be paid back. Not to worry. All is forgiven if you are Jack Lew, especially your loans. According to Lew, the university forgave the loan of some $1.4 million "in equal installments over five years." Upon leaving NYU, Lew received what he describes as "a one-time severance payment upon my departure." He wasn't fired, usually the occasion for severances. He simply left and got paid for the act of leaving. Hey, that's Jack Lew -he gets paid when he stays and gets paid when he goes. He went to Citigroup, which NYU had made its primary private lender for student loans in exchange for a cut of those loans. (Coincidences happen to everyone, including Jack Lew.) In 2008, as the bank nearly blew up and laid off one-seventh of its employees, Lew ran its disastrous Alternative Investments unit -and got paid $1.1 million. The bank had to be bailed out by the federal government, but it couldn't stop paying Jack Lew. The journalist Jonathan Weil of Bloomberg has unearthed Lew's contract at Citi. It said, reasonably enough, that he wouldn't get his "guaranteed incentive and retention award" if he left the company. It made an exception, though, if Lew left to get "a full-time high level position with the United States government or regulatory body." Jack Lew being Jack Lew, he left Citi to become deputy secretary of state, on his way to resuming his duties at OMB, then becoming the chief of staff to the president, and now secretary of the treasury. And, of course, he got paid. The cynics talk of crony capitalism. The scoffers hint of special favors for the politically connected. The good-government types worry about the unseemliness of a too-big-to-fail Wall Street bank giving one of its executives an incentive to become a high-ranking government official. Maybe they should give it a rest and simply stand back and marvel at the moneymaking machine that is Jack Lew. Lesser mortals criticize and cavil. He gets paid.Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

handwriting as used by those creating records on documents such as the census and ship passenger lists. Cursive lettering has changed over the years and we should make notes of the most used words. Bill Balch will bring us up to date on the clubs blog. Following these presentations we will have refreshments and a 50/50 drawing. Please keep in mind that programs are subject to change. Regular meetings are at 9:30 a.m. on the third Friday of each month in the card room; however, as a reminder, in March, June, September and December meetings are held at 11 a.m. in the Orchid Club auditorium. Announcements of club activities are on channel 12 and at www.orgenealogy.blogspo t.com. Oak Run residents may read the blog but only club members can post comments, questions, or answer comments to questions. Oak Run residents interested in researching ancestors are welcome to attend meetings and to join us. The annual membership is $6 and entitles you to get help in finding the missing links in your family tree, to meet others with the genealogy addiction, and to attend the holiday party. New England ClubThe New England Club of Oak Run will meet on March 21 at the Orchid Club, with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. and short agenda beginning at 5:45 p.m. A dinner will follow catered by Royal Oaks with a choice of ham with raisin sauce or chicken marsala, salad, vegetables and dessert. The cost of $15 will be collected at the sign-up on Monday, March 11 or Friday the 15th at the Orchid Club lobby from 10 a.m. until noon Entertainment will be by Gates Landry on his guitar. Please remember to wear your name tag, bring cash for the 50/50, and bring your own place setting including silverware, dish, napkin and beverage of your choice. Tea and coffee will be available. There will be door prizes. For more information call Mary at 352-854-7941 or Cecilia at 352-854-5836.Performing Arts CompanyAs you read this article there are only 11 days until showtime for the Performing Arts Companys play, The Odd Couple, and if you havent got your tickets for this rip snorting funny show, call Linda Noel at 352-873-9908. Rehearsals are going smooth as silk and Oak Runners are in for a real treat when they plant themselves in the Palm Grove Club. From the opening remarks by Lou Winkleman, to the set decorations by Dee Gragg, to the lobby decorations by Shari and Hal Weber, we think you will be impressed. We welcome Jean Muncy back to Oak Run where in previous years she was the musical director for such plays as Bedside Manor and Magnolia. Jean and Paul left the community a few years ago but longed to return and we are happy to have them back in the fold. This year Jean is getting her feet wet by becoming our stage prompter. For those of you who are unaware this could happen, (it does) Jeans job will be to prompt the cast with a line when memory fails them. When you consider the fact that most of our cast is in their 70s, and one in the 80s, you gotta remember we are in the forgetting mode!! Patty Waddel as our director and Diana Schmidt as her assistant have done a yeoman job of molding our cast into a real tight knit of performers. Kudos for their efforts. Doors for the dinner theatre open at 4:45 p.m., with dinner at 5:15 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday shows doors open at 6:15 p.m. and on Sunday at 2:15 p.m. Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door prior to each performance. Come join the fun!! Oak Run Tennis ClubSpring is in the air. You may not be aware what has been happening at the Oak Run Tennis Club. Jim Newsheller has volunteered to become the next tennis club facilitator, We thank Joe Husjar for the improvements to the courts over the past many years. He will still be involved and we can count on him for his continued support. Through the generosity of a few dedicated players, the tennis club has been able to purchase a new ball machine. For those who want individual training on using the machine please sign up at the courts. Starting on Thursday, March 7, tennis instruction for beginners will be given between 2 and 4 p.m. for five consecutive weeks. Efforts are being made to set up a badminton court at the padrac facilities. This is a fast game and fun at the same time. The Oak Run Tennis Club every year asks that every player contribute the small amount of $5, which goes toward various improvements around the tennis courts. Unfortunately this year contributions have been coming in very slowly. If you have not yet contributed please give the money to Jim Newsheller or Joe Huszar. This is a small amount for the privilege of playing tennis. Tally tennis is in full swing on Tuesday and Thursday at 2 p.m. All levels of players are welcome. We have had some guests that have been good players, so come down for an afternoon of fun tennis. ORWGAHere is the list of winners for the Feb. 21 Low Net Tournament. Names are listed in order of fin-Friday, March 8, 2013~ 29 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, March 8, 2013 My high school algebra teacher, Mr. Gretsch, would periodically refocus the attention of students with an outburst of irrelevant wisdom. His favorite was to wave his arm above his head, and exclaim loudly: You know were all a little crazy! Rampage killings, such as the recent carnage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, bring to mind Mr. Gretschs suggestion that we live among many unstable people, some of whom might become harmfully aggressive at any time. The White House response to the Sandy Hook rampage was the Biden Committee recommendations, which focus mainly on gun control, as expected and requested by President Obama. For 40 years since 1971 weve been engaged in the costly and unsuccessful war on drugs, with no end in sight. The worst mess in this longest war ever was Operation Fast and Furious selling guns to smugglers in expectation of tracing the weapons to the drug cartels. The results were killing rampages in Mexico and the death of one of our own ATF officers. Efforts to keep track of thousands of weapons were futile. Apparently the lessons from six years (2005-2011) of gun walking were not learned. The Obama administration is apparently committed to trying to reduce killing rampages by keeping track of guns. We foresee another federal bureaucracy which will spend billions of dollars, add thousands of federal employees, produce tons of records about gun purchases and owners, and accomplish little if anything to prevent violence just another Washington spending compulsion. The Biden Committee did include a fuzzy but possibly more productive recommendation for a national dialogue on mental health problems related to violence. The so-called Cannibal Cop trial in New York suggests that identifying people preparing to do harm is possible, and makes more sense than cataloguing purchases and possession of guns and cartridges in hope of occasionally stumbling on a potential killer. The New York police officer referred to by the media as the Cannibal Cop is on trial for conspiring to kidnap, cook, and eat young women. His authority to carry a gun has no bearing on the case. The evidence offered by the prosecution includes kinky photos, fetish chat rooms, a trail of emails, and a file of womens names, addresses, and pictures. The dilemma for prosecutors in such cases is how far the law can be stretched to prevent harm. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that expanding government power to eavesdrop on e-mail and phone talk in search of likely future injury is too speculative. However, law enforcement agencies around the country do identify and corral sex peddlers without crossing legal limits. They also intercept many online child predators. In most cases the peculiarities of rampage killers were known or suspected by people who could have alerted a crime stopper agency if they were better informed. Rampage killings are more preventable by interception than by counting and cataloguing guns. We think focusing on weaponry is wishful thinking and dumb. This year we had other things to write, so we didnt go through our yearly list of Super Bowl commercials that we liked. For you non-football fans, each year, because of the exposure, many national brands choose to unveil new commercials during the Super Bowl. They know that millions of people will be watching. I didnt even keep a list this year, but there is one still airing that stand out. Best liked in our household is the Budweiser ad, which kind of has a tie to the horse industry in our area. In the ad, a man raises a Clydesdale horse from youth until it is old enough to go on a truck to become a Bud Clydesdale, and he sadly says goodbye. Three years later he goes to see a parade and the Clydesdales are in it, and he looks with pride as the horse passes by. Later, as hes in his car, the horse breaks away and follows him and the two are emotionally reunited. It was one of the nicer ads to hit the airwaves. As long as were talking about commercials, there are others that are getting a little tiresome. State Farm: The young woman comes out of her apartment and sees a guy designing an accident on his phone. The woman says she heard on the Internet that State Farm doesnt have apps and they cant put anything on the Internet that isnt true. Soon her boyfriend comes to pick her up, and hes a big oaf who she thinks is a French model that she met on the Internet. He slaughters bon jour. She then gives her friend a sly smile as she walks away with her date. AT&T: The guy sits around a table with a bunch of little kids, kindergarten or first grade, and they talk about whats better. In fast or slow, one little kid wants to tape a cheetah to his grandmas back; in bigger is better a girl says a small tree house wouldnt be big enough for a TV. These ads are really annoying. Progressive: From Flo meeting some guy on a lonely road to competitors having their pants on fire because they were lying (no mas pantalones), these ads run the gamut from insulting to dumb. Sometimes you wish that advertisers would come up with something new. Do they really think theyre holding our attention with these ads?Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

For some reason, with all the cold weather, the beginning of Daylight Saving Time comes sneaking in like a thief in the night. Nearly everyone we tell to make sure they change their clocks this coming weekend has one response: Already? Many people echo the sentiment that we feel: Just decide which way you want it, and then leave it alone all year. For various reasons, we would prefer staying on Daylight Saving Time all year. It just seems nicer to have a little daylight left after the workday. One of the arguments against Daylight Saving Time is that it means children waiting for school buses in the dark. Well, all you have to do is go out now, during standard time, and youll already see children waiting in the dark. In addition, many of us remember when we went to school and the hours were 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thats right, young people. Not everyone was raised with the first bell at 8:22 and the last bell at 2:13, or some odd times like that. It was very simple, 9 to 3, eight 45-minute periods. It was so simple a first grader could understand. If youre really concerned, just start schools one hour later when Daylight Saving Time takes effect. That means the number of children out in the dark would stay the same, and gradually dwindle as the days get longer. Energy savings? We never did buy that argument. Whats the difference whether you use extra lights in the morning or extra lights in the evening? So get ready for the time change. Spring, when the clocks move ahead, is the time when people are late for everything. Since the time changes at 2 a.m. Sunday, its usually church services that are the first to feel the brunt of the change when people show up an hour late. There will also be a lot of people doing a lot of extra yawning come Monday morning at offices all across the country. But take heart. You have plenty of time to get used to it. The clocks dont change back until Nov. 3. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY One more time, change your clocks A late review of the Super Bowl ads Wisdom means learning from your failures READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Flynn Columnist Jim Clark Editor Read the classifieds LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Bad HOA billA recently filed Florida State Senate Bill should be reviewed by every property owner in a residential community with a homeowner association (HOA). You can web search and read FL S 0596 2013Bill Text. In particular, pages 4 through 38 attempts to fix the already defective Chapter 720 that governs how HOAs must operate. Unfortunately, the proposals will not fix but instead will encourage ongoing bad and illegal behavior by developers, directors and managers. As proposed, a property owner that is not a felon and has paid up association fees may be a director. Surprisingly, any other person not owning property including an incarcerated felon may legally be a director. If required annual meetings are not held or are run illegally, the bad guys stay in office with no penalty. Astoundingly, the bill allows the developer to use any amount of votes per lot (disguised as voting interests) to outvote everyone else, not at all equal to the measly one vote you have. Required association transition from developer control to member control maybe occurs when a confusing number of lots are sold, not at an absolute time (like 5 years) from incorporation. Developers just sell some lots to their other companies or keep some lots, allowing continuation of the profitable dictatorship forever. Finally, ambiguity remains over which HOAs are controlled by Chapter 720. The statute must include every Not-for-Profit HOA in Florida. Read the Bill, write your Senator. Help fix the problems. Don Kronen, Ocala The Constitution misinterpreted I guess there are people who are interpreting the Constitution as well as the Bill of Rights, and their civics classes, are not well informed. They apparently do, as many people do when interpreting other writings, just pick out what they want, and give their own take on it. I would guess, anyone under the age of 50, has not been taught civics in school as it was taught in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. When I was in high school, we were required to take civics and in college also required to take Western Civilization. Now, studying civics was about as interesting as watching grass grow. But, when I look back, it was one of the most interesting, and important courses I was required to study. Now that I'm a senior citizen, with more time on my hands to do whatever I choose, I've been studying the Constitution, and how it's being misinterpreted so satisfy individuals and groups, to their advantage.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 39 To help encourage the nearly 40 percent of at-risk Americans who are not getting screened for colon cancer to take this lifesaving step, Endoscopy Center of Ocala is participating in National Colon Cancer Screening Day, a national effort to screen 2,013 firsttime patients for colon cancer on Friday, March 8. When detected in the earliest stage, colon cancer patients have a 90 percent chance of survival. With March being both the pinnacle of the college basketball season as well as Colon Cancer Awareness Month, StopColonCancerNow.com hopes to encourage people to rally around their health in the same way that they rally around their favorite team. As part of March Gladness, National Screening Day is the day to get in the game and complete or schedule a colonoscopy. During its inaugural year in 2012, the National Screening Day goal of screening 1,000 firsttime patients was exceeded. StopColonCancerNow.com has set the bar even higher this year, making it the perfect time for those 50 years of age and older (45 years of age and older for African Americans) or for those who have a family history of polyps or colon cancer, to make that appointment. March Gladness is the peace of mind that comes with taking care of your health, and a colonoscopy is one of the most important steps an individual 50 or over can take, said Dr. Olejeme of Endoscopy Center of Ocala. Too many patients are putting off making this appointment. By designating a national screening day, l hope to raise awareness among first-time patients and break down the barriers associated with the procedure. Its an easy call to make and the message is clear; a colonoscopy can save your life.

Peggy Hostetler, newly elected president of The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County, will examine the capacity of pre-schoolers to develop empathy for others when she addresses the organizations next potluck luncheon womens gathering which will take place Wednesday, March 20 at the Unity Church, 101 Cedar Road, in Silver Springs Shores. Doors at the church will open at 11:30 a.m. with the formal program concluding at 1 p.m. Rev. Hostetler has selected her topic as a facet of The Charter for Compassion, the organizations theme for 2013. Development of this document was spearheaded by Karen Armstrong and other leading thinkers in an effort to activate adherence to the Golden Rule in cultures and religions throughout the world. The pastor of the Oakbrook Center for Spiritual Living wants to encourage children to become altruistic adults who buy shoes for a homeless man on a freezing night, or rush to lift a commuter pushed onto the subway tracks as the train nears rather than those whose callous behavior leads to the bullying and disdain for the other which afflicts so many raised only to be princes and princesses of all they survey.

Please telephone her at 352680-9296 or visit www.TIAMarionCountyFL.org to RSVP or for more information.Thursday, March 21 Air Force group to meetThe March meeting of the Red Tail Memorial Chapter 136 of the Air Force Association (AFA) will be held on Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m. at the Ocala Regional Airport Administration Building, 750 S.W. 60th Ave., Ocala.

COOLID GE By Amity Shlaes In re-examining our obscure 30th president, Calvin Coolidge, historian Amity Shlaes hopes to illuminate the country we once were. She begins by tracing Coolidges improbable rise from a tiny New England town. As a youth he was so unpopular at Amherst that he was shut out of fraternities and made few friends. But his father had taught Calvin perseverance and when doors closed to him he found others to open. Politics was one of those doors. The flint-faced VermonterSilent Cal as he came to be knownbrought tough fiscal discipline to his presidency. Shlaes sees him as a rare kind of hero, a minimalist president, and economic general of budgeting and tax cuts. This new biography is firmly anchored in the 1920s for the most part with the entrance of Franklin Delano Roosevelts first term as its terminus. Ironically, at the start of his political career Coolidge came under the sway of the Republican progressive movement, personified with flair by Theodore Roosevelt. In the state senate, he voted for womens suffrage, a state income tax, minimum wage for female workers, and salary increases for teachers. But then Coolidge began not only to question progressivism but also to find the radicalism of union leaders alarming. In 1919 as Massachusetts governor Coolidge gained widespread fame when Boston police went on strike, unleashing looting, property damage and street violence. A fearful nation awaited Coolidges reaction. Most expected conciliatory treatment of the policemen. Instead, he stared down the strikers and brought in the National Guard. Knowing such a move would cost him the Irish vote he nevertheless believed that there is no right to strike against public safety. His gutsy response would earn him a mere footnote in history. Yet when Ronald Reagan stared down the air traffickers in the 1980s he became a hero for all time. The Coolidge years were a time of both joy and sadness. With his lovely, welleducated wife Grace by his side, Coolidge was able to enjoy many of the perks of the White House. But the sudden death of his son Calvin Jr. from a blister that turned into blood poisoning brought insurmountable grief. When pressed to serve a third term, Coolidge reflected on the high price in health his predecessors had paid and to the surprise of his party, he declined. Shlaes believes the Coolidge legacy of fiscal restraint is timely as the nation faces a looming economic crisis brought about in large measure by mounting public debt.

When you work and pay Social Security taxes, you earn credits toward Social Security benefits. If you were born in 1929 or later, you need 40 credits (10 years of work) to qualify for retirement benefits. We determine the amount of your benefit by both how long you work and how much you earn. The higher your lifetime earnings, the higher your monthly benefits. If there were some years when you did not work or had low earnings, your benefit amount may be lower than if you had worked steadily or earned more. Your age at the time you start receiving Social Security retirement makes a difference in your benefit amount. The full retirement age (the age at which 100 percent of retirement benefits are payable) has been gradually rising from age 65 to age 67. You can take early retirement as early as age 62, but if you start collecting benefits before you reach your full retirement age, your monthly payment will be reduced. You can find out what your full retirement age is by referring to the convenient chart at www.socialsecurity.gov/retire2/retirechart.htm Just as you can choose an early retirement and get a reduced payment, you also can choose to keep working beyond your full retirement age to take advantage of a larger payment. Generally, your benefit will increase automatically by eight percent each year from the time you reach your full retirement age until you start receiving your benefits or until you reach age 70. The decision of when to retire is personal and depends on a number of factors. To help you weigh the factors, we suggest you read our online fact sheet, When To Start Receiving Retirement Benefits, available at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10147.html. You may want to consider your options by using our Retirement Estimator to get instant, personalized estimates of future benefits. You can plug in different retirement ages and scenarios to help you make a more informed retirement decision. Try it out at www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator. You also can set up an online my Social Security account. You can use your my Social Security account to obtain a copy of your Social Security Statement to check your earnings record and see future estimates of the retirement, disability, and survivor benefits you and your family may receive. Visit www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount. When you decide to retire, the easiest and most convenient way to do it is right from the comfort of your home or office computer. Go to www.socialsecurity.gov where you can apply for retirement benefits in as little as 15 minutes. In most cases, there are no forms to sign or documents to send; once you submit your electronic application, thats it! Youre done! Be sure to have your bank account inIts time for you to spring into retirement Social Security Adon Williams formation handy so you can receive your payments electronically. Electronic payment of federal benefits is now mandatory, with few exceptions. Spring is a great time to turn a new leaf. Spring into retirement now!

Our role is to help support the ministries of Advent Church, both with our time (actual hands-on volunteering) and talent (each one of us has a special God-given skill that we are challenged to put to His purposes). The projects/events we plan and undertake provide us with wonderful opportunities for good fellowship among us as well as the opportunity to generate income for Advents ministries and special fund-raising needs. For example on Friday, April 12, we are sponsoring and producing a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater. More details about this will appear in a subsequent issue of this publication.

On Sunday, March 3, at about 2 p.m., a deputy responded to 7771 S.W. 117th St. Road after a caller described an apparent homicide scene. At the home, according to the report, the deputy and a partner entered the home and found Bronwyn Wilcox, who would have been 81 years old on Wednesday, March 6, lying on her back on the floor between the kitchen and eat-in dining area. In the kitchen, the deputies found several notes on the counter advising to cancel insurance, etc. and several phone numbers for the next of kin. Deputies then went through the master bedroom and into the master bath, and found Harold M. Wilcox, 80, in the walk-in shower, fully clothed. There was a shotgun and blood in the shower, and the report says he apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He also found other personal papers in front of the shower. Neighbors said they had spoken with the victims who said they were going to church, as did the neighbors. When the neighbors returned and opened their garage door, they found a box that wasnt there before. There was a note and a key to the Wilcox home. The neighbors went immediately to the Wilcox home and found the bodies. Oak Run murder, suicide reported PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELGirl Scout cookie salesGirl Scout cookies sales have started in the area.
