Recommendation: Refrain from burning
The Multi-agency Wildland Task
Force met on March 11, and while
it has not recommended a manda-
tory burn ban, officials are en-
couraging residents to refrain
from outside burning.
Weeks of extremely dry condi-
tions and high fire activity made a
mandatory burn ban a considera-
tion at Monday's meeting. How-
ever, the task force instead opted
for a voluntary burn ban, hoping
that Tuesday's forecasted rain
might improve conditions.
As of March 11, some areas
within the county bordered the
drought index's severe drought
range. On a scale of 0-800, 62 per-
cent of the county fell within the
400-500 range with the average at
476; some areas registered as high
as 617. Officials also noted burn
piles that got out of control have
caused many of the county's re-
cent brush fires.
Due to the current dry condi-
tions, the task force encourages
residents to postpone burning and
instead take yard debris to the
Marion County Landfill (5601 S.E.
66th St., Ocala) or one of the
county's other 17 recycling cen-
ters. Locations and hours of oper-
ation for these centers are
available online at
To help protect against wild-
fires, officials recommend resi-
dents keep 30 feet of defensible
space around their homes and
adopt other National Fire Protec-
tion Agency Firewise practices,
n Keep flammables, including
mulch, pine needles and dead veg-
etation, away from the home,
fence and deck.
Opt for low-growing, fire-re-
Store fire wood at least 30 feet
from the home.

Residents who choose to burn
must follow all Marion County
Fire Rescue regulations, as these
guidelines help protect both peo-
ple and property. The county's
guidelines for safe and legal back-
yard burning are available at:
During Monday's meeting, the
task force also confirmed that the
Hopkins Prairie Fire is now 100
percent contained. The blaze en-
compassed approximately 2,025
acres bordered to the north by

Too much green beer? Use AAA's Tow to Go
AAA and Bud Light will help
protect motorists for St. Patrick's
Day weekend with the Tow to Go
program. The Auto Club Group
has provided the Tow to Go serv-
ice for more than 15 years be-
cause it allows AAA to protect
the freedom and mobility of mo-
tourists on our roadways.
The program's mission is to
discourage an intoxicated driver
from getting behind the wheel
and risking the lives and safety
of other motorists. Anyone, AAA
member or not, can call for a

Love to read?
Our Reading Volunteer Group is looking for enthu-
siastic 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 an-
ticipating the next page, discussing the book, sharing
the pictures, and just being with them is a truly re-
warding 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

Don't treat juveniles with kid gloves
C OU T H M A R I O N
PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN
REGIONAL MANAGER: JOHN PROVOST
EDITOR: JIM CLARK
"In afree society a community newspaper must be a forum
for community opinion."
If you clean it up,
tourists will come
Marion County officials are holding a series of
meetings this week to get public input on
tourism. Since we're part of the public, we
thought we'd chime in.
First, the county's built-in major tourist attraction is
Silver Springs. The state hopes to make it viable for
tourists again. There are some changes planned, but
some of them, such as getting rid of the Jungle Cruise,
are a little bit questionable.
The key is a drop in admission prices, which are a lit-
tle steep right now.
A functioning Silver Springs State Park would be a
step in the right direction, provided it has what tourists
want. That remains to be seen.
Second, the city needs to keep its baseball talks with
the New York Yankees alive. After the fanfare of the an-
nouncement last fall that the Yankees were consider-
ing moving their Minor League Florida State League
team here, there has been precious little public activ-
ity. Bringing in baseball could attract some people to
Third, and possibly most important, the city of Ocala
needs to clean itself up, and that's not in reference to
planting trees and sweeping the gutters.
The crime in the streets is a blight on Marion County.
The totally inadequate hooker sweeps are a waste of
They either just move somewhere else, or they pay
their fines and are right back on the streets. There
needs to be stiffer jail sentences to force them out of
Hardly a day goes by that there's not a story about a
drug-related crime. That, too, is the type of publicity
that an area that wishes to attract tourists doesn't need.
The panhandlers are a problem that everyone wishes
would go away, but no one seems capable of finding a
solution. We wonder how many people get off the In-
terstate, see the panhandlers at the exits, and immedi-
ately get back on the highway and get out of the area.
We even saw one man with a sign that said something
like "I won't lie to you, I want money for a beer." Amaz-
ingly, people were giving him money
Then there's traffic. Negotiating the streets of Ocala
and neighboring areas is not an easy chore. Try to ex-
plain streets, street circles, avenues, avenue roads, ter-
races, courts, lanes, etc. to a stranger and they look at
you as if you're speaking a foreign language.
Add to that the fact that two of the major thorough-
fares in the county, State Road 200 and Silver Springs
Boulevard, don't follow a straight grid system and are
built at an angle, and it's easy for a visitor to get lost.
So if we want tourists to come, and not everyone does,
the county and city have to take some action. We have
a feeling that will be a long time coming.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Money problem solved
We are told government
needs more money, even
though we are taking in more
taxes than ever before. This
fact supports our not raising
taxes on any individual or
business. It does mean we
have to face the reality that we
are spending too much, so the
only answer is to cut spending.
We don't even have to cut
worthwhile programs, we can
save billions by getting rid of
No more benefits for any il-
legal, period! No more food
stamps, free housing, free
medical care, or tax refunds
(how can anyone by definition
get a refund when they don't
pay in anything?).
This also applies to anyone

Watching TV on Sunday
morning for me consists
mainly of some sports
shows and a CNN media show. If
I'm not home because of church, I
record them for viewing later.
So it was late Sunday morning
when I started the recorder to
watch ESPN's "Outside the
Lines." It turned out to be a dis-
gusting story about the rape of a
drunk teenager, the arrest of two
football players in Steubenville,
Ohio, a town crazy for the "Big
Red" football team, and the trial
of the two that was due to be held
Wednesday of this week.
The two were a quarterback
and wide receiver, both of whom
probably had aspirations to play
at the next level.
There was one thing that really
surprised me. The question was
asked, "What punishment do
these teenagers, age 16 and 17,
face if convicted by the judge (it's
in Juvenile Court and not a jury
The answer? If convicted, they
could be incarcerated in a juve-
nile facility until they are 21, then
released. It was also stated that
they would likely have to register
as sex offenders.
My immediate thought was,
"Let's move this case to Florida."
Down here, these boys would
probably both be charged as
adults and tried before a jury in
an adult court. They could be sen-

a payment system that reim-

to a formula.
But the Centers for Medicare

In Ohio, they can be out on the
streets in four or five years.
There were some other things
in the report, including three
teens who failed to report the
crime, but have not been arrested.
The report stated that they would
probably take the Fifth Amend-
ment, then be given immunity so
their testimony could be offered.
However, there was a ruling,
probably after the report was
recorded, that the trio didn't have
to testify. It seems they live in West
Virginia, and the crime was com-
mitted in Ohio (Steubenville is
just across the river). A judge in
West Virginia ruled Friday that
the trio couldn't be subpoenaed.
There has been a lot of criticism
that the three weren't arrested.
Now it appears that an arrest war-
rant is the only way to get them

Indeed, the Government Ac-
countability Office explicitly
warned of"a potential underes-

that there were still "questions
about payment adequacy begin-

If policymakers had pro-
ceeded with bundling the oral
dialysis medications, patients
could have lost access to them.
Health care providers serving
the Medicare population would
have started losing money when
dispensing these drugs. Many
would have been forced to stop
offering them leaving patients
in the lurch.
Patients suffering from end-
stage renal failure are some of
the most vulnerable in the en-

I don't like laws, or the people

ABC News, the parent company of

media outlets did.
I have one proposal that needs
to gain some steam. Let's lower
the age of juveniles from 18 to 16,
and make it a federal law that
can't be superseded by the states.
If you're 16, you are automatically
tried as an adult. That way, what
are now juvenile offenders, par-
ticularly violent ones, would know
that if they were caught commit-
ting a crime, it would mean hard
time "up the river."

olds are not children when it

OK, so I'll weigh in on guns.
First let me say not only don't I
own a gun but I have never
fired one that didn't begin with
the words cap or water. In fact I
have passed on the opportunity
to hunt because hunting should
be left those with experience.
I grew up in Brooklyn and
worked in midtown Manhattan
from 1957 to 1980. I do not re-
call ever hearing a shot being
fired in those 40 years. I did
have several bombs go off

These events were so common
that they were rarely reported
in the news. Then there were
the many events where whole
neighborhoods were burned to
the ground by race rioters.
Those neighborhoods were al-
lowed to burn because the po-
lice and fire responders were
under attack from rooftops by
anything that wasn't nailed
down. Guns need not apply

to wade in with guns blazing.

The United States must find a way to crawl out of debt
BY GLENN MOLLETTE
Our nation must crawl out of debt. If
our outgo continues to exceed our in-
come then our upkeep will be our
downfall. Our fiscal house is out of
order. Therefore there is urgency in our
government for more and more money
Where is this money coming from? The
money will come from you, your family
and friends. We will never be out of debt
by enacting more and more taxes on any
group in America whether it's the two
percent who are considered rich or the
large population of the poor or middle
class. We can only do this by eliminat-
ing wasteful spending.
A man may have a good income. If his
house payment is $4,000 a month, his
credit card bi takes their share of his
taxes he won't have much left to survive
on. The worst thing he can do is get an-
other credit card, blowing the $5,000
limit on a weekend spending spree and
incurring more debt.
As a nation we have gone crazy with
debt. We are a poor example for our
own citizens and the rest of the world.
People in America are drowning in
debt. American people are losing their
homes every day, filing for bankruptcy
and suffering the pain of debt. The an-
swer to the American dilemma is not
more debt; more loans and more maxed
out credit cards. Families are desperate
to get out from underneath the hardship
America continues to build cities and
nations around the world while we con-
tinue to increase our debt more and
more. This is a huge burden on the
American people. We are taxed to pay
for roads, bridges and rebuilding cities
in other nations that we cannot afford.
In the process our nation is crum-
bling because we cannot fix our own
bridges and roads. Our Social Security
and Medicare systems are struggling
because our government continues to
indebt us and rob the Social Security
system to pay for foreign projects that
are beyond our means. Therefore our
seniors are becoming poorer, the poor
are becoming poorer, our young people
cannot find jobs and the middle class is
becoming the poor class.
Congress should never raise taxes on
any group of people in America. The
percentages are high enough. The day
will come when someone will try to lead
Congress to tax our income by 50 per-
cent. It won't just be the rich. We must
turn this tide around. The attitude of
"why work?" is growing in our nation.

We cannot afford it at this juncture in
our history Possibly in a few years we
can be more generous. But now we are
starving our own children while we give
money to other countries in the world
that hate us. Let me hasten to say I do
not think we can buy friends. Giving
money to Pakistan or Libya does not
buy friendship with these people. We
need to cut out every dime given to Mid-

We must eliminate unnecessary wars
that drain each of us in our country Iraq
and Afghanistan have cost us between
four and five trillion dollars! The aver-
age citizen is being taxed more and
more to pay for these long and drawn
out unnecessary wars. Thousands of
lives have been lost in Iraq and
Afghanistan. What was accomplished?
Those people do not like us any more
today than they did before the wars.
The mindset of the people has not
changed. They still have the same ha-
tred toward America and even toward
each other in their own nation.
We can no longer go into greater debt
as a nation in order to bale out big
banks and Wall Street who pay millions
of dollars to executives while Ameri-
cans are struggling to pay their utility
bills. Big bankers and Wall Street exec-
utives make millions of dollars each
year and live in luxury while middle
class Americans are being kicked out of
their homes by the very bankers who
have been rescued with taxpayer
money! Allowing the Federal Reserve
to print more money to bale out these
greedy millionaires while passing the
bill on to a struggling American public

Affordable Care Act and Medicare, Part D
BY DOUGLAS SCHOEN
As it becomes clear the President Obama is making
Medicare a key topic for discussion within the
broader context of federal spending, Democrats and
Republicans have an opportunity to pursue common-
sense reforms that preserve the program while
achieving bipartisan support for fixing what isn't
Despite ongoing reservations, I believe that some
parts of the Affordable Care Act can conceivably be
implemented with minimal dislocation, but only if the
right policies are embraced by the administration.
And that's why I think that the president is making a
mistake in proposing potentially damaging changes to
arguably the most effective part of Medicare, instead
of building on its progress and finding a way to drive
long-term cost savings by keeping seniors healthy
The Medicare program component in question is
the Part D drug benefit that George W Bush signed in
2003 (later implemented in 2006). Part D was created
to cover the drug coverage gap that that once existed
in the Medicare's plan for older and disabled Ameri-
cans. Under Part D, seniors choose from a wide vari-
ety of privately run drug plans that negotiate
individually with drug makers: seniors pay far less
than they used to for coverage.
According to a recent survey, the program has a 90
percent approval rating and, unique among major
federal programs enacted in recent years, will actu-
ally cost less-$334 billion less- than original estimates.
Even better, improved access to drugs appears to be
saving costs elsewhere: The Congressional Budget Of-
fice found every one percent increase in prescrip-
tions filled results in a .20 percent decrease in
spending in Medicare.
Part D works so well because it recognizes both the

virtues-and the limits-offree, competitive markets. On
one hand, the very existence of the program ac-
knowledges that Americans have a collective respon-
sibility to help older and disabled individuals afford
the medicines they need. On the other, by prohibiting
government bureaucrats from trying to set prices, it
leaves dozens of individual market players free to fig-
ure out the best way to meet consumer needs.
In fact, the process works so well that the Congres-
sional Budget Office says the government-run negoti-
ations some in the Democratic party want wouldn't
save taxpayers a single penny
Likewise, the misguided "rebate" proposal that
President Obama referenced in his State of the Union
Address would alter the program unnecessarily
Clearly the president means well, but the record
shows that it just won't work. Indeed, the govern-
ment's most significant experience with trying to sin-
gle-handedly run a prescription drug program, the
Department of Veterans' Affairs' health system, has so
many gaps and omissions that more than 40 percent of
its enrollees end up electing to pay for Part D or other
privately provided coverage.
This is why President Obama and my fellow De-
mocrats should capitalize on the important lessons
we've learned from Part D and make the program
their own. Even with the recent success in holding
down Medicare costs (the rate of cost increase has
dropped by nearly 300 percent), everyone who looks at
the program overall agrees that its current antici-
pated spending path can't be sustained much longer.
Put simply, both Democrats and Republicans have
an opportunity to drive bipartisan cooperation and re-
duce health care spending through a proven govern-
ment program. Seniors will welcome it and Medicare
will be in better shape as a result.

America can return to being the strongest financial
nation in the world but it's not going to happen at the
current pace. Life for Americans will only become
worse unless we all join hands and turn this nation
around. I believe we can. We can become a nation
with a surplus and not a deficit. We can once again
lead the world in employment. We should not become
satisfied watching China, Japan, India and other na-
tions steal our manufacturing out from under our
noses while our families lose their own homes and
our homeless Veterans walk the streets of America.
I am dreaming of a day when once again families
can put some money in the bank because the govern-
ment is not taking it all and misusing so much of it
while our nation goes further and further into debt.

I refuse to answer for anybody else
because it is a full-time job trying to
answer for myself. I must confess
though, I sometimes cannot give a good
answer for myself. I can give an answer,
but not a good one, and when it comes
to answers, the Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage demands good ones.

a bad actor.
Putting all of this in context, I must
confess that my wife believes I am a
great actor. I have tried to dissuade her
from this opinion, but up to this point, I
have not been successful. When she
thinks of me she always says, "And the
Emmy goes to..."
How she came to this point, I'm not
quite sure. No matter what I do, she still
holds to this personal opinion of me. I
keep telling her that I am not that good
of an actor, which she keeps smiling and
nodding her head in my direction.
Some examples need to be given here
to show my point.
Just the other night we were at a
restaurant with some friends, having a
good time, or so I thought. I must say
when I'm on a roll, I'm on a roll. But all
during my "roll," I kept feeling some-
body under the table kicking me. I ig-
nored it thinking perhaps our friends
did not quite know what they were
doing. Never once did I suspicion my
companion with this action. I kept

selves to take a break and when they
were out of listening distance, my wife

I looked at her, not quite knowing
what she was referring to, and said
quite innocently, "But, my Precious, (it's
a name I use when I'm in trouble but
don't know why) I'm not acting."
She gave me one of "those looks" and
said, "Stop acting foolish."
This is what I admire about my wife.
She has the highest opinion of my abil-
ities particularly in the area of the thes-
pian arts. Our friends were coming to
the table when I was about to tell her I
was not acting foolish, it just came nat-
Another example comes to mind.
I remember she was trying to explain
something to me one time. I do not
know what it was now. It was something
to do with something in the garage, a
place I have not been for years, and I
was not connecting the dots, as they say
She was going into a long dissertation
on what needed to be done and I was
just standing there staring at her. I was
trying to understand what she was say-
ing, but nothing was clicking upstairs, if
you know what I mean.
In the middle of her dissertation she
stopped, looked at me intensely, placed
both hands on her hips and said, "Don't
act so dumb."
Smiling broadly I whispered, "My
Music and songs of the Passover celebration
When I was growing up, the part
of the Seder I looked forward
to after chowing down my fa-
vorite chicken soup with matza balls
and the candy raspberry chocolate cov-
ered ring jells was singing the Passover
songs. In those days, I would pull out my
guitar and accompany my family as we
wended our way through the seder with
music and song.
The Passover seder is the ritual meal
that Jews observe to celebrate their
freedom in ancient days from the tyrant
Pharaoh of Egypt. According to the
Torah, God sends Moses to tell Pharaoh
to let His people go, a reference to the
slavery the Israelites were experienc-
ing. After 10 plagues, the Pharaoh re-
lents and the Israelites make their way
to freedom. In celebration of this event,
each year, Jews sit down to this ritual
meal and tell the ancient story of their
As with many holidays, music and
song make the rituals come alive and
lift the spirit. The seder is filled with
music from the songs of praise of the
Hallel to the allegorical Chad Gadya.
Some of the songs are musical rendi-
tions of the text; others are composed
melodies of Middle Ages origin or even
recently composed ones such as those
by the late Debbie Friedman whose
song about Miriam is a favorite with my
The seder opens with the chanting of
the individual steps to the service. The
blessings of sanctification over wine
and candles also have a distinct chant.
The opening lines of welcome for all to
participate in the seder have a lovely
syncopated melody and is sung in Ara-
maic, the language of ancient Israel of
2,000 years ago when the seder ritual
was standardized. The famous Four
Questions that the youngest child asks
about the seder has two chants: One
that is Sephardic in origin and one that
is a traditional Talmudic chant.
The mentioning of the Ten Plagues
has an interesting musical component
also. Drops of wine are taken with a fin-
gertip at each mention of a plague and
the name of the plague is chanted in a
mournful drone. A diminished cup sym-
bolizes sadness; the drone reminds us
that the Egyptians suffered so that the
Israelites could gain freedom.
The antithesis of the plague chant is
the famous Dayenu. This portion lists
the numerous miracles and blessings
that were given to the Israelites. The
word means, "it is enough for us." This

Debbie Friedman's famous song
about Miriam at the Reed Sea is an ex-
ample of a modern composed song. It
celebrates Miriam and the women who
danced and praised God with song as
soon as the Israelites reached free-
dom's shores. This lively tune is a paean
to the involvement of the women in the
path to freedom.
One of the most famous seder songs
comes at the end of the seder. It is sung
in Aramaic and is entitled: Chad Gadya,
The form is similar to the rhyme
"This is the house that Jack built or the
Twelve Days of Christmas where the
stanza before is repeated and added to
the additional verses. The allegorical
nature of the song makes for an inter-
esting story In the song a little goat
bought by a father for two coins is as-
saulted by a cat, dog, stick, fire, water,
ox, ritual butcher, and Angel of Death.
Each of these devours or destroys the
object before it. The various objects and
animals have special meaning. The fa-
ther stands for God, the coins Moses
and Aaron, the ensuing items are the
nations that conquered Israel: the cat,
Assyria, the dog, Babylon, the stick, Per-
sia, the fire, Macedonia, the water,
Rome, the ox, the Saracens, the butcher,
The Crusaders and the Angel of Death
the Turks who ruled Palestine. The
song ends on a hopeful note and wish
for a messianic age when the Holy One
will destroy the foreign rulers of the
Holy Land and will vindicate Israel as
the lawful ruler of its land and destiny
Other interpretations are accepted but
most would accept the interpretation I

Many people sing the Israeli national
anthem, Hatikvah, or Ani Ma'amin, a
song to honor those killed in the Holo-
caust, just to mention a few.
May the song of freedom wend its way
into the hearts of us all and may it burst
out in joyful melody with the promise of
redemption for all those oppressed.

Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish Center
The Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish Center
of Marion County and The Villages
plans to distribute hand-made Shmu-
rah Matzah this year to help local Jews
participate in the upcoming Passover
holiday The Matzahs will be distributed
to doctors, lawyers members of the com-
munity 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 leav-
ened substance such as bread and
"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
Egypt over 3,000 years ago. It is there-
fore 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 aware-
ness and participation. According to es-
timates 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 addi-
tion, millions of Passover guides in 17
languages will educate people on the
meaning and practices of the holiday
"The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Men-
achem M. Schneerson, of righteous
memory, taught that no solitary Jewish
person ought to be left out. Every Jew,
regardless of their background, affilia-
tion or even location, should have ac-
cess to the provisions they need to
celebrate Passover," said Rabbi Yossi
Hecht from the Chabad-Lubavitch Jew-
ish Center of Marion County "There are
Chabad emissaries across the globe are
working feverishly to provide Jews with
Matzahs, holiday guides and much

Seven million donors registered
Seven million Floridians are reg-
istered organ, tissue and eye donors
on Florida's Joshua Abbott Organ
and Tissue Donor Registry This
news comes as a message of hope to
more than 117,000 men, women and
children awaiting the gift of a life-
saving organ transplant in the
United States today More than
4,600 of those patients in need are
in Florida, and tens of thousands
more could benefit for life-enhanc-
ing eye and tissue transplantation.
"Florida's registry is the second
most populous in the country, and
as a result, patients in need of life-
saving transplants in Florida have
shorter waiting times, on average,"
says Ruth Duncan Bell, chair-
woman of Donate Life Florida.
"Every time someone registers to
become a donor on Florida's reg-
istry, they may one day save as
many as eight lives and impact
This accomplishment is a result
of the giving nature of Floridians, in
addition to important partnerships
with and support from the Depart-
ment of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles and county tax collectors,
whose role in asking Floridians
about donation results in thousands
of donor registrations each year.
Donate Life Florida is a non-
profit organization dedicated to
empowering the public to save lives
through organ and tissue donation.

Little Theatre presents'Wedding Belles'on March 23
M arion Landing Little Theatre
will present their spring pro-
duction, "Wedding Belles," next
Saturday, March 23, at 7 p.m. in the
Lifestyle Center. "Little Theatre has
been performing for about 16 years with
basically the same residents participat-
ing," said Donna Taylor, who writes and
directs the shows. The shows are always
a favorite with our residents, and this
show is sure to be one, too. It is a light-
hearted comedy set in the early 1900s
and illustrates the ordeal one family
with five sisters endures when, tradi-
tionally, the eldest sister must be the
first to marry Tickets are only $3 each
and are available at Tuesday Socials, in
the Activities Office during regular
ticket sale hours, and at the door.
The Marion Landing Community
Yard Sale is scheduled for March 30
and will be held from 8 a.m. to noon in
the Lifestyle Center parking lot. The
public is welcome, and there will be lots
of items from which to choose. Resi-
dents: this is your opportunity to clean
up, clean out, and sell your unwanted
S- Marion Landing
items to the public. You can reserve
your parking spots/tables on Wednes-
day, March 20, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at
the Lifestyle Center; and they will be
sold to residents on a first come, first
served basis. At the end of the sale, if
you choose, Divine Providence will re-
move any unsold items. The Yard Sale
always attracts a large crowd, so this is
a prime opportunity to "sell your stuff."
This year's Games Party turned out to
be a wonderful afternoon which started
with lunch and was followed by cards
and games for an afternoon of friendly
camaraderie. A successful event such
as this doesn't happen overnight and
without the involvement of many volun-
teers. In addition to the event chair,
Lois Norris, and co-chair, Janice Wood,
there were many dedicated volunteers
involved, many of whose names you will
recognize. They sold tickets and made
table reservations, manned the kitchen,
set-up the tables, decorated, and
cleaned up. They are, in no particular
order, as follows: Joan Ritter, Paula Ad-
well, Martha Nierenberg, Donna
Schmidt, Ethel Taragna, Noreen Met-
zger, Rose Peters, Val Spencer, Leta

it takes a lot of time and energy from a
lot of people to put on this type of event,
but every one of them is sure to say "It's

crime and take simple precautions that
will enhance our personal safety

Marion Landing resident Ken Hall has written a
number of poems over the past 20 or more years, and
they are compiled in a recently-published book enti-
tled, "To Bring a Smile and Open Your Mind and
Heart." "Primarily, I believe it was the idea that if I
wrote a poem, I would not have to buy a fancy card,
(and) it would mean more if I took the time to write a
poem," said Ken. He started this habit in the early
1960s, and it was brought about by his desire to write
letters that rhyme. After his wife died on New Year's
Eve in 1999, Ken started writing more since he was
alone, and then started printing the poems out and
saving them. "I wish now that I would have saved
them all." This easy-to-read book consists of poems
that make you laugh, poems that will touch your heart,
and just poems about life in general. "A woman named

Comedy Night a hit at Cherrywood Clubhouse
Monday, March 4, Jim Moody, the
Crowd Teaser, took over the
Cherrywood Clubhouse for two
great shows of "Up the sleeve magic
and off the cuff comedy" His routine
was both amazing and hilariously funny
Jim has a way with people and inter-
acts with the audience throughout his
performance. The tricks he does are
dazzling and the jokes are fresh; new
and laugh out loud funny If you ever get
a chance to see him in person do it; you
won't be disappointed.
A special thanks to the Social Com-
mittee headed by Jay O'Hern; to Chris
Zacco and Cherrywood Property Man-
agement and Geri for putting on and
sponsoring this great show. It was well
worth the price of admission.
In addition to the snacks and the
world class entertainment, raffle prizes
and 50/50 drawings rewarded some of
our lucky residents. At the first show,
Gail Brafford won a gift certificate and
Marion O'Hern and Pia Dean won the
50/50 drawing. At the second show, the
winners were; Connie Neubaur, gift
certificate; Bill Mahar and Judy
Pniewski the 50/50 drawings.
Because of the cold weather, some
people stayed home and missed a ter-
rific performance. For those who at-
tended, it was truly a laughter filled
treat. See more about Jim Moody in the
Spotlight on Excellence article in this
Veterans meeting a sub-sess
Bill Wood of the Submarine Veterans
of America was the guest speaker at this
months Cherrywood Veterans Club
meeting. The highlight of the meeting
was seeing a 24 foot replica of the Nau-
tilus submarine. Often featured at pa-
rades; at the Ocala Veterans Park and
other demonstrations, this working
model is definitely a conversation
I H John Everlove
In addition to Bill, Ken Nichols and
Joe Hilchey were also on hand to an-
swer the many questions posed by our
members and guests. The Nautilus had
its keel laid in 1952 and was launched
in 1954. After 35 years of service, it was
formally retired with some major ac-
complishments to its credit.
Nautilus could travel at 23 knots mak-
ing it a fast submarine. It was the first
submarine to traverse under the North
Pole which was a strategic move for the
United States during the Cold War.
Under the pole, away from any threat of
detection or destruction by the Soviet
Union, the Nautilus could launch its
missiles in retaliation to any threat by
that country Limited only by the
amount of food that it could carry for its
crew, Nautilus was an awesome
weapon when it joined the fleet and the
forerunner for future submarines. It
proudly served and was proudly served
in by the men of its crew.
Business wise, the veterans club nom-
inated officers for the coming year. Bill
Mahar was nominated for president;
Joe Gignac for cice president; Rich
Hurley for treasurer; Marty Duesel, ser-
geant at arms/trustee; and John
Everlove, secretary Nominations will
be accepted at the next meeting imme-
diately followed by the elections.
Next month's meeting will be on
Thursday, April 4 at 2 p.m. Our guest
speaker will be from SECO giving tips
on saving money; saving your appli-
ances and other safety concerns.

Spotlight on excellence
Each week we feature an individual or couple who
have an interesting past; a promising future or who
have made a contribution to the quality of life here at
Cherrywood. This week I'm doing a slight deviation
from that theme but this article is definitely about a
person has all three of the prerequisites.
Last week we had the Cherrywood Comedy Night
and our guest was Jim Moody While not a resident of
our community, he certainly improved the quality of
life here at Cherrywood with his great performance
of comedy and magic. He is a consummate performing
artist with talent and timing that is impeccable.
Jim first became interested in magic at the age of 7.
His grandmother took him to the American Theatre
in St Louis, Missouri, for a performance of Blackstone
the Magician. He sat in awe of the tricks the man was
able to do and became hooked on magic at that very
Thirty years later, in a moment that will linger in
Jim's memory for as long as he lives; he too stepped
out onto the stage of the American Theatre and did
his act. His performance was warmly received and the
applause stirred emotions and memories in him that
The American Theatre holds many memories of
days gone by Each entertainer who performs at the
venue signs his or her name on the back wall of the
dressing rooms. When Jim performed he had to have
a stage hand bring him a ladder because the only
space available for his name was high up in the corner

of the wall.
As he gazed on that memorial to great stars he read
names like Frank Sinatra; Ike and Tina Turner; Ray
Charles; Crystal Gale and many others. All of the big
names from the forties; fifties and sixties came to the
American in Saint Louis.
In the seventies the theatre like most venues of its
time began to decline. For several years it was a bur-
lesque house and then sat empty for a while. In the
nineties, it was bought and turned into a super club
where performances take place to this day
To say that Jim has had a wide ranging career would
be an understatement of the first order. One day he
taped a show with Regis Philbin. It was to air on a Sat-
urday night in St. Louis and fate stepped in.
St. Louis is not noted for its wonderful weather and
on this particular Saturday night, a heavy ice and
snow storm hit the area. Roads were impassable and
walking just as treacherous so everyone in town; for
the most part, stayed home. Three million viewers
saw the program that night.
From that airing, Jim received acting parts playing
promotional roles like Ronald McDonald; Jack in the
Box for the famous restaurant chain and numerous
other offers to take his act on the road.
Recalling some of his more memorable gigs, Jim re-
lates an appearance at the Latin American Festival in
He had been assured that everyone who attended
spoke English and he would be well received. You can
guess what happened next.
During his first performance, he didn't get a laugh
for any of his jokes. The sound man looked up from
the orchestra pit and told him, 'Jim you're dying up
there!" Dejected, he returned to his dressing room to-
tally bewildered until he was told that nobody in the
audience spoke English.
His next show, he did without speaking a word. "I
totally did magic tricks through the entire perform-
ance," he told me. "At the end, I received a standing
ovation and felt really good."
One of the many people that Jim has opened for was
He talks about the last time he saw Ricky It was the
week before the plane crash that took his life. They
were doing dinner theatre together and a week later,
Ricky was gone.
He spoke fondly of working with Charo also. He
agrees that she is as crazy in person as she is on stage
but also adds that "..she is one top ten flamenco gui-
tarists in the world."
For many years Jim played the St. Louis Playboy
Club. He was booked into the VIP lounge named
Magic One by the owner of the club who loved magic
and magicians. The capacity of the room was only

about 80 seats and it was used to handle the overflow
while people were waiting for the next big acts on
stage. Jim loved to perform there however because he
enjoys working with the audience.
Laughingly he describes one evening when the club
and his room were getting ready to close early It was
a slow night and there was no use using up utilities
for no reason. Suddenly a couple of buses pulled up
and out came sixty or seventy Japanese businessmen.
Jim was able to put on his act across because each
table had an interpreter to translate the jokes to the
other guests. He said there was a lot of laughter but
the delay really threw his timing off.
Cruise ships; comedy clubs and river boat casinos
are just some of the venues where Jim has enter-
tained. He has worked with hundreds of stars and de-
veloped many characters to keep his act lively and
new. Flim-Flam Jim is one such unique character that
he used on the river boats.
Besides a storied professional career, Jim has led a
rewarding personal life as well. During the Cuban
missile crises, he served in the U.S. Navy and was sta-
tioned at Jacksonville's Mayport Naval Station. He
was on a destroyer that did picket duty as part of the
radar early warning system. It was while in port that
he met his wife, Linda.
It was Linda's mother who introduced them and
they soon fell in love and were married. Jim and
Linda just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary
in August of last year.
The Moody's now live in central Florida enjoying
the warm weather and the opportunities for perform-
ing that this area offers. Jim is a humble, down to
earth person who loves people and performing. It was
another reporter, Dick Richmond, who gave Jim the
nick name, "The Crowd Teaser". It's a name that Jim
has certainly lived up to.
Jim has had an interesting past to say the least and
a more than promising future to be sure. Has he con-
tributed to the quality of life here at Cherrywood? For
those who caught his act last Monday, there can be no
doubt. If you want first class comedic and magical en-
tertainment for any occasion, you can contact Jim at
www.crowdteasercom or call 352-315-1100.

'The Odd Couple Female Version'takes to the stage
Months of hard work will pay off
next week when the Performing
Arts Company of Oak Run pres-
ents "The Odd Couple Female Ver-
sion" for our entertainment.
Frank Porterfield says, "As one of the
cast members in The Performing Arts
Company's spring show, "The Odd Cou-
ple," and as the publicity director and
producer of the show, I have to say that
in some 15 years of being involved with
both of our former theatre groups and
now the new one, I've never had so
much fun. It's a grind, learning all the
lines in the script, the speech inflec-
tions, etc, but this time around it just
beats everything I think we've done in
the past. This show is so down to earth
and funny that being involved just
seems to take the work out of it. After a
while, it gets to be old hat insofar as the
humor is concerned but this humor is
so different than the norm that we just
can't stop laughing at ourselves and
particularly when we goof and miss a
line. If you don't take in this show you
are going to miss out on something re-
ally worthwhile. Hope to see your
beaming faces in the audience. If you've
missed the public ticket sales in the Or-
chid Club you can still secure seating at
the door on show dates."
Performances will be at 7 p.m. on Fri-
day, March 22, and Saturday, March 23,
and 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 24, at Palm
Ambassadors Passport Show -
Tribute to Patsy Cline
The fourth passport show of the sea-
son,"'Tribute to Patsy Cline," will take

Grove. Barbara VanEycken is Patsy As
Barbara says, "Who would have thought
my New York roots would result in
singing country? But from the time I
first heard Patsy, I felt something I can't
explain." An extraordinary one-woman
tribute show to country music legend
Patsy Cline, her interaction with the au-
dience is awesome. She has everyone
on their feet and has brought down the
house many times with her excellent
performance. A true professional, she
sings her heart out. You will begin to be-
lieve Patsy is really on stage.

Wearin'o'the green in Pun Alley
Marion's Most Wanted
This coming Sunday is St.
Patrick's Day, a holiday first
celebrated in 1737 by Irish
immigrants in Boston. The most
well known celebration is the pa-
rade in New York City where the
parade route is painting with a
green line to guide the marchers.
Elsewhere almost everyone cel-
ebrates by wearing green, being
honorary Irish, drinking green
beer, and eating corned beef and
cabbage. Likewise, Pun Alley gets
painted green and has some Irish
A con artist, posing as a travel
agent, offered trips to the home-
land in Ireland to a number of un-
suspecting clients. After securing
sizable down payments, the con
artist disappeared. When the scam
was discovered, the story ran in the
local papers under the headline,
"Tour Allure A Lie."
Paddy was walking through a
graveyard when he came across a
headstone with the inscription

Padraic Flaherty came home
drunk every evening toward ten.
Now, the Missus was never too
happy about it. So one night she
hid in the cemetery and figured to
scare the wits out of him by wear-
ing a red devil costume. As poor
Pat wandered by, from behind a
tombstone she jumped in front of
him screaming, "Padraic Sean Fla-
herty, sure and ya' don't give up
you're drinking' and it's to hell I'll
Pat, undaunted, staggered back
and demanded, "Who are you?"
The Missus replied, "I'm the divil

Padraic answered, "Glad to meet
you sir, I'm married to yer sister."
The first Irish National Steeple-
chase was finally abandoned. Not
one horse could get a decent foot-
ing on the cathedral roof.
The cross-eyed Irish teacher re-
signed because she had no control
over her pupils.
O'Toule was rather sad after
viewing the body of a dead atheist.
"There he was. All dressed up and
no place to go."
People wear shamrocks on St.
Patrick's Day because real rocks
are too heavy.
Finnegan: "My wife has a terri-

but it failed: They ran out of scaf-
"I'll have fish and chips," an-

said the shopkeeper. "The fish
won't be long." O'Driscoll replied,
"Then they'd better be fat."
Two companies were competing
for a contract to put up telephone
poles. One of the companies was
Irish. The authorities decided to
test them, seeing which company
could put up the most poles in an
hour. The first company achieved
twenty but when the Irish com-
pany's tally came in it was only two.
"I'm afraid you lost the job," the
Irish company was told, "the other
boys managed twenty to your two."
"Ah," came the reply, "but they
cheated. Did you see how much
they left sticking out of the
They got jammed in the restau-
rant door and Peadar used some
very improper language that an-
noyed Liam. "How dare you swear
before my wife," Liam protested.
"I'm sorry," said Peadar with
contrition, "I didn't know she
wanted to swear first."
The Protestant minister was im-
pressed when he was shown Fa-
ther Quinn's new residence.
"You know," he said, "it is far bet-
ter than what my wife and I have at
"That's logical," replied Father
Quinn. "Protestant ministers have
better halves and Catholic priests
have better quarters."
An armed hooded robber burst
into the Bank of Ireland and forced
the tellers to load a sack full of
cash. On his way out the door with
the loot one brave Irish customer
grabbed the hood and pulled it off
revealing the robber's face.
The robber immediately shot the
guy and looked around the bank to
see if anyone else had seen him.
One of the tellers was looking
straight at him, so the robber
calmly shot him too.
Everyone by now was very
scared and looking down at the
floor. "Did anyone else see my
face?" screamed the robber.

Dr. Ravi Chandra I on Endovascular Surgery Options
Surgeons at Munroe Regional are regional leaders in a wide
range of vascular and minimally invasive endovascular procedures,
including diagnosing and treating common, complex and even rare
For example, endovascular surgery is an innovative, less invasive
procedure used to treat problems affecting the blood vessels, such as an
aneurysm, which is a swelling or "ballooning" of the blood vessel. From
a small incision near each hip, our surgeons insert an endovascular
graft, which is a specialfabric tube device framed with stainless steel
selfexpanding stents via a catheter Once in place, the graft expands and
seals off the aneurysm, preventing blood from flowing into the aneurysm.
An alternative to traditional open surgery, endovascular surgery offers
many advantages, including a shorter recovery period, less discomfort,
local or regional anesthesia instead ofgeneral anesthesia, smaller
incisions, less stress on the heart andfewer risks for patients with other
Is endovascular surgery an optionfor you? Thisprocedure may benefit
patients who need vascular surgery but are at a high-risk of complications
because of other conditions. Talk with a Munroe Surgical physician.
We will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to
determine whether endovascular surgery might
be an appropriate therapeutic option for you.
RAVI CHANDRA, MD :
Munroe Regional is widely regarded as
one of the best hospitals in the country,
recognized for quality and excellence
across the board. And nowhere is the
Munroe Regional commitment to clinical
excellence and innovation more evident
than in the many thousands of surgeries
we perform each year.
In 15 operating room suites, Munroe
surgeons use the latest technologies and
minimally invasive surgical techniques,
backed by decades of innovation and
experience and a genuine commitment
to exceptional, compassionate,
patient-focused care. That's experience
you can trust.
If you need surgery, remember that where
you choose to have your surgery is important.
There is a real quality difference in the care
at Munroe Regional, and it matters.

Thursday, March 21, at 1 p.m. in the up-
stairs meeting room at the Bank of the
Ozarks and we are pleased to announce
that our guest speaker will be Dr. Ed

S.W 60th Ave. For those of you who
work during the week, or have other
commitments, A Family Veterinarian is
open on weekends. Since our meetings
are always open to guests; this would be
a good opportunity for you to meet Dr.
Ed and hear about his new clinic.
Please give us a call at 352-362-0985 if
you would like more information about
our meetings or have any other ques-
tions for us.
At our last meeting everyone agreed
that we should meet all year round
since we work all year round. So start-
ing this summer, we will meet in July
We are still looking for individuals or
families willing to foster a dog or cat in
need from time to time. Please call us
at the above number and we will put
you on our list. Sometimes we only need
a foster for a few days while we reunite
a lost pet with their family Other times
it may be a few weeks to a few months
while we find an adoptive home. In ei-
ther case, you will be doing a wonder-
ful service for your community
Be on the lookout for the SPCAs used
book sale to be held at the Farmer's
Market at Circle Square Commons out-
side of On Top of the World Communi-
ties by Southwest 80th Avenue and
Southwest 80th Street. We're trying to
have one each month when the cooking
demo, "Flavors of the Season" takes
place. They are held on the first Thurs-
day of each month from 10 to 10:30 a.m.
The Farmers Market itself lasts from 9
a.m. to 1 p.m. You can visit the website

Who's afraid of a little black cat? Well,
many of us, it seems. According to shel-
ters and fosters around the country, the
most difficult animal to place for adop-
tion is a black cat. Whether from fear or
superstition, or from the fact that black
cats don't photograph as well as their
colorful brethren; the poor black feline
is the last to be adopted and the first to
be euthanized countrywide. Even our
wonderful cat expert Arlene, is having
trouble placing her black cats. All her
other cats of varying stripes and colors
have been placed. Sadly, she will get a
phone call to adopt a cat or kitten, and
as soon as the person hears the pet is jet
black, they hang up without even want-
ing to see them. Here is a picture of
nine year old Pumpkin, who looks mag-
nificent in her photograph. Her buddy
Kitten (not black) was recently adopted,
and now Pumpkin misses her terribly
Pumpkin needs a home of her own to
ease her distress. Please call Arlene at
352-875-9761 to meet Pumpkin or one of
the other black cats or kittens to see if
one is right for you. Don't let old wives
tales keep perfectly lovely and loving
cats from having the wonderful home
they deserve. Think of them as chic and
elegant companions that make you look
slim when they sit on your lap.
Marion County Animal Center
Needs Foster Families
The Marion County Animal Center is
in continuous need of foster families for
young, sick, or injured animals. You
usually only need to foster for a short
period of time say up to four weeks -
until the animal is old enough or well
enough to go back to the shelter system.
You can find more information on fos-
tering at http://marioncountyfl.org/Ani-
malCenter/foster.aspx. You can also
contact the shelter at 352-671-8700 or
email them at animalservices@marion-
countyfl.org. The shelter is open Tues-
day through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5:30
p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5

are not our whole lives, but they make
our lives whole."

Complex plot makes a so-so thriller EARTH TALK
TOUCH AND GO
By Lisa Gardner
In "Touch and Go" Lisa Gardner unfolds a highly
complex plot involving the mysterious disappearance
of a wealthy Boston family
Police know only that businessman Justin Denbe
and his wife Libby returned to their elegant brown-
stone after a night out to find their 15-year-old daugh-
ter Ashlyn being tased. Immediately after, they too are
victims of stun guns.
Law enforcement, including former cop Tessa
Leoni, wait anxiously for ransom demands but none is
forthcoming. So what is the motive behind the abduc-
So far Gardner's 15th novel is humming along. As
stymied police put together theories, secrets about the
"perfect" Denbes start spilling out. It seems that
Justin has been having an affair, Libby is addicted to
painkillers, and teenage Ashley has a lover who's not
even close to her own age.
In time a GPS reading reveals that a white cargo
van, believed to be the kidnappers' vehicle, is headed
north of Concord, New Hampshire, an area called the
Wild Wild West where there are so few police, cops
often conduct shoot-outs alone.
The family is being taken to a state-of-the-art peni-
tentiary built by Denbe's firm but never opened and
Here events seem to defy logic.
The sprawling empty facility has full electricity run-
ning day and night and an air-conditioning thermostat
set at 77 degrees. And no taxpayer is complaining
about this colossal waste of money? And when the kid-
nappers turn off the electricity the power company
doesn't notice a huge spike in output? Really? At this
juncture it's time to suspend disbelief here and go for-
The point of view shifts from an omniscient narra-
tor to Libby's personal flashbacks about her romance
and marriage to Justin: "The first time I met Justin I
was working at a friend's clothing boutique. I can tell
you everything about those first 15 minutes of our re-
lationship. And just like that, I was lost." The marriage
that follows is not as enthralling.
The characters are mildly interesting and the pace
is alternately brisk and dragging. Inside the prison,
time weighs heavily for victims and readers alike. Fi-
nally, the ending, for my money, is not believable. Bot-
tom line: this is a so-so thriller
Bees and butterflies
E- The Environmental Magazine
Dear EarthTalk: I'd like to have a garden that en-
courages bees and butterflies. What's the best ap-
-Robert Miller, Bakersfield, CA
Attracting bees and butterflies to a garden is a noble
pursuit indeed, given that we all depend on these
species and others (beetles, wasps, flies, humming-
birds, etc.) to pollinate the plants that provide us with
so much of our food, shelter and other necessities of
In fact, increased awareness of the essential role
pollinators play in ecosystem maintenance-along
with news about rapid declines in bee populations-
have led to a proliferation ofbackyard "pollinator gar-
dens" across the U.S. and beyond.
"Pollinators require two essential components in
their habitat: somewhere to nest and flowers from
which to gather nectar and pollen," reports the Xerces
Society, a Massachusetts-based non-profit that pro-
tects wildlife through the conservation of inverte-
brates and their habitat.
"Native plants are undoubtedly the best source of
food for pollinators, because plants and their pollina-
tors have coevolved." But, Xerces adds, many vari-
eties of garden plants can also attract pollinators.
Plant lists customized for different regions of the U.S.
can be found on the group's website.
Any garden, whether a window box on a balcony or
a multi-acre backyard, can be made friendlier to pol-
Xerces recommends providing a range of native
flowering plants that bloom throughout the growing
season to provide food and nesting for bees, butter-
flies and other pollinators.
Xerces also says that clustering flowering plants to-
gether in patches is preferable to spacing individual
plants apart. "Creating foraging habitat not only helps
the bees, butterflies and flies that pollinate these
plants, but also results in beautiful, appealing land-

Along these lines, gardeners should

Master gardener Marie lannotti, an
About.com gardening guide, reports
that blue, purple, violet, white and yel-
low flowers are particularly attractive
She adds that different shapes also
attract different types of pollinators,
and that getting as much floral diversity
of any kind going is a sure way to maxi-
Another way to attract pollinators is
to provide nest sites for bees-see how
on the xerces.org website.
The group also suggests cutting out
pesticides, as these harsh chemicals re-
duce the available nectar and pollen
sources in gardens while poisoning the
very insects that make growing plants
Those looking to go whole hog into
pollinator gardening might consider in-
vesting $30 in Xerces Society's recently
published book, Attracting Native Pol-
linators: Protecting North America's
Bees and Butterflies, which provides a
good deal of detailed information about
pollinators and the plants they love.
Gardeners who have already encour-
aged pollinators can join upwards of
1,000 others who have signed onto
Xerces' Pollinator Protection Pledge.
And the icing on the cake is a "Pollina-
tor Habitat" sign from Xerces stuck
firmly in the ground between two flow-
ering native plants so passersby can
learn about the importance of pollina-
tors and making them feel welcome.
