A group of concerned Marion County activists wishes to do likewise by expanding our community conversation about important issues of the day with a monthly luncheon speaker series to be known as The Friday Forum. The first will take place on Friday, April 12, at 11:30 a.m. at Buffet City. People from all walks of life who share an interest in our community and the welfare of all our people are invited to attend. Bruce Seaman, pastor at Fairfield Presbyterian Church and coordinator of Awake Marion, an affiliate of the statewide coalition of progressive groups known as Awake the State, will be the first speaker. He will describe the groups current initiatives and introduce their project leaders. They include: Chris Altobello, president, Marion Education Association; Judy Etzler, Water Well Justice (water issues); Anita Frauenshuh, Amendment 11 activist on behalf of low income seniors; Pat Hawk, Pat Hawk Marketing (water issues); Whitfield Jenkins, vice president, local NAACP (Juvenile Justice); Nancy Noonan, president, Marions United for Public Education; Ray Seaman, online director, Progress Florida; and Mike Sizemore, retired railroad executive who advocates for local control of Munroe Hospital. Future speakers will include Cynthia Barnett, acclaimed author of Blue Revolution: Unmaking Americas Water Crisis. The nonpartisan group plans to invite other community leaders and opinion makers concerned with social justice and governmental issues of vital interest to the community such as poverty, racism, the environment, health care, the arts, technology and governmental reform. Buffet City is centrally located at the corner of State Road 200 and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard just west of U.S. Highway 441. Attendees are asked to arrive at 11:30 a.m. to select their meal so that the program can begin promptly at noon. Buffet City will reserve one of its rooms for us depending upon the number expected. So please email FridayForumofMarionCounty@gmail.com or telephone Delphine Herbert at 352-873-9970 to let us know if you are coming.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 34 ~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Dear EarthTalk: Im getting my roof redone and have heard about solar shingles. Are they availableand are they practical for the Northeast? John Denson, Glastonbury, CTSolar shingles are photovoltaic cells designed to look like and integrate with conventional asphalt roof shingles. First commercially available in 2005, solar shingles were much more costly than traditional bolt-on photovoltaic panels, and thus were used mainly by those wanting to go solar but maintain a traditional roofline. But more recently solar shingles have become price-competitive with bolt-on panels, and are getting much more popular accordingly. Eco-conscious home and building owners might find solar shingles especially attractive when they are re-shingling anyway since the solar shingles also double as functional, protective and weatherproof roof shingles in their own right. The biggest name in solar shingles is Dows Powerhouse line, which uses cutting edge Copper Indium Gallium Selenide solar cells (aka thin-film solar) to turn sunlight into electricity via a supplied inverter box. The Powerhouse shingles generate 12 watts per square foot and are gridtied, meaning theyre designed for structures already connected to the power grid and can send excess power back to the grid. They are wireless, snap together and can be installed by regular roofing contractors just like (or alongside) conventional asphalt shingles (an electrician needs to set up the inverter box). Dow reports that a typical residential cluster of 350 solar singles on a roof could slash ones household electric bill by 40-60 percent. Such an installation can cost a homeowner over $20,000, but federal, state and local incentives can bring the cost to half that in some areas. Powerhouse shingles are currently available (from Dow-authorized contractors) in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Texas and Washington, D.C. Another leader in solar shingles is building products manufacturer CertainTeed. The companys Apollo line of gridtied monocrystalline solar shingles and roofing tiles offers efficiency similar to larger bolt-on photovoltaic arrays at around the same price (and incentives similar to those for Dow may also apply) but with less bulk: Each Apollo tile is less than an inch thick and will integrate with, replace, or lay on top of existing asphalt roof shingles or tiles and generate 12 watts of power per square foot. CertainTeed says a typical installation will save homeowners 40-70 percent on their electric bills. Their Apollo products are available across the U.S. but the company recommends using one of their authorized roofing contractors to make sure they are installed properly. Now is an especially good time to go solarshingles or otherwisebecause costs have started to come down and the federal government is still offering 30 percent tax credits with no cap on the purchase of solar electricity equipment. Twenty-seven states and several cities offer additional incentives that can get pricing on solar gear and installations down even lower. For more information check out the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE), a free online resource provided by the North Carolina Solar Center and IREC EARTH TALKCONTINUED FROM PAGE 32 TAI VIINIKKA, COURTESY FLICKRRecently solar shingles have become price-competitive with bolt-on panels, and are getting much more popular accordingly. On top of that, federal, state and local incentives can bring the cost down considerably more. Pictured: solar shingles from the Dow Powerhouse line. with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy.

Then along came President Franklin Roosevelt elected four times. For most of the next 20 years Democrats controlled both houses of Congress. Republicans managed one brief takeover of both houses in 1947-49. President Harry Truman labeled it the donothing 80th Congress. The name has stuck ever since. President Roosevelts first New Deal (1933-34) was about ending alcohol prohibition, changing the money system, and creating economic recovery programs. The Works Progress Administration (WPA) was created to reduce 25 percent unemployment, an expensive but useful program which employed more then eight million people over ten years. Roosevelts second New Deal (1935-38) was a first step toward social democracy, but nobody used that term back then. Democrats leaned toward liberalism voting rights, equal rights, and government social services health care, food and shelter for the homeless. Senior citizens remember Mr. Roosevelt most favorably for initiating Social Security. Thirty years later, President Lyndon Johnson decided Social Security surpluses were a quiet source of revenue for funding the Vietnam War. Ever since, Congress has used Social Security taxes as a piggy bank to fund pet projects and other wars, issuing IOUs which cant be redeemed without borrowing real money. Additional major elements of a social democracy were in President Johnsons Great Society welfare legislation and social reforms. Mr. Johnson is remembered for a number of appreciated domestic programs Medicare, Medicaid, and federal funding of education. Republicans made two significant contributions toward social democracy: The Medicare Prescription Drug Act of 2003, which purchased a second term in the White House for George W. Bush and enriched pharmaceutical companies beyond their happiest dreams. And the Great Recession of 20062009, which elevated a half-term Democratic senator into two terms in the White House oval office. In time, President Obamas Health Care for America Plan will likely merge existing programs into a single national health administration perhaps a final step toward converting a 225 year old constitutional republic into an American social democracy. What is a social democracy? Its not socialism. Its social reform of a capitalist economy and a gradual transition of government to direct democracy. But thats an explanation for another time. Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 33 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, March 29, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Resist a confrontation with that irksome person. The matter will soon blow over anyway. Meanwhile, channel your high Arian energy into areas with more positive potential. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The innovative Bovine finds a creative way to resolve a sensitive domestic problem by midweek. A former colleague returns with an intriguing business suggestion. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) An unexpected critical statement from someone you trust could catch you momentarily off guard. But you soon recover your equilibrium and rise to the challenge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel you can handle a new project on your own. But advice from someone with experience could help you avoid possibly costly as well as time-consuming obstacles. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Waiting for others to make decisions is difficult for the take-charge Lion. But by weeks end, you should hear news that will help you regain control of the situation. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your superjudgmental side could dominate the week unless you try to keep it in check. Otherwise you risk offending people, including some who are very close to you. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Expect more information to come out about that possible career shift. Meanwhile, your loving concern helps someone close to you get through a worrisome period. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Despite an occasional setback, workplace pressures should continue to ease through most of the week. This would be a good time to plan that long-delayed trip. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) The sage Sagittarian quickly recognizes an opportunity when she or he sees it, especially if its one youve been planning for. Take aim and go for it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) The Sea Goats unique insight guides you as you check out a questionable situation. Your efforts should prove rewarding for you and your many supporters. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might want to pace yourself a bit more. Rushing could lead to serious slip-ups. Take more time to check out details you might otherwise overlook. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) The best way to resolve those remaining problems is to ask others for help. Theyll be happy to do so, especially when you agree to share the credit for a job well done. BORN THIS WEEK: Your natural gift for honest leadership earns you the respect and admiration of others. W hen asked if he had any political affiliation, humorist Will Rogers used to quip: I am not a member of any organized party. Im a Democrat. If he were alive today, Rogers could claim membership in either of two disorganized parties. Republicans didnt learn much from their disorganized politics under presidents Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover, which led to the Great Depression (19291939). During those three presidencies, Republicans controlled both houses of Congress (1921 to 1933). Republicans had no one else to blame for the Great Depression bank failures, collapse of the stock markets, 25% unemployment, and fearful retreat of consumers. The great drought of the 1930s made conditions even worse farm foreclosures, decreased trade, disappearance of agricultural jobs, and growth of a poverty class. W hen I was a kid, living up north, I always wondered how, on Feb. 2, some silly little animal in Pennsylvania could predict the weather. It was Groundhog Day, and supposedly if the groundhog saw his shadow and scurried back into his hole, there would be six more weeks of winter. If he didnt see his shadow, there would be an early spring. The biggest celebration is in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. In fact, a cult movie starring Bill Murray was made in 1993 featuring this festival and, indeed, a festival has built up around this holiday. The people in Pennsylvania take this quite seriously. So imagine their chagrin when the prosecuting attorney (similar to our state attorney and big cities district attorneys) of Butler County, Ohio, issued an indictment against Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog, for lying about winter. It seems that Phil said there would be an early spring, and last week and this week mid-Ohio, as well as Pennsylvania, was buried under several inches of snow. The tongue-in-cheek indictment from Ohio went even further it sought the death penalty against Phil. This, of course, raised the ire of the folks in Pennsylvania. They have sent a letter to Butler County, Ohio, with a cease and desist order, claiming that the prosecutor in Ohio had no jurisdiction over any event that happened in Pennsylvania. And you thought you had problems? Whats next extradition? Poor Phil. He was awakened from his winter hibernation by some guy in a funny hat and crazy outfit, pulled out of his cozy hole into the frozen tundra of Pennsylvania, given a quick look at the ground to see if his shadow was there, and then put back for the rest of his slumber. And what does he find upon his awakening? Only that a contract has been put out on him by the people of Ohio. While, of course, this is just a fun event, it does bring into focus the problems faced by weather forecasters. Just 11 days ago the local TV forecasters were telling us to get ready for a dry spell, with no rain for at least 12 days. Since then, weve had two fronts come through, the latest over the weekend, some with violent weather attached. The weather patterns have been a little strange, and as of this writing Monday our temperatures are dipping into jacket weather again. So while you consider the plight of weather forecasters, consider what Phil in Pennsylvania is going through. While we may blame the local forecasters for messing up our weekends, at least we dont put contracts out on them. But poor Phil hell have to look over his shoulder until the weather warms up.

I n case you wondered about the disconnect between the major television networks and the American public, there was an incident last week that should set you straight. CBS has a show called The Amazing Race, which is not high on our must see list. About a week ago, the episode of the show was set in Hanoi, North Vietnam. Among the scenes was a downed American jet from years ago. The racers also had to learn a song that the children of Hanoi sang to them, and some of the lyrics included Vietnam Communist Party is glorious. The light is guiding us to victory. Needless to say, many Americans, especially Vietnam veterans, were infuriated. There were demands to CBS for an apology, with social media playing a big part in the effort. The complaints included some from Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain, who was once a prisoner of war in Vietnam. Finally, on Sunday, one week after the Hanoi episode ran, a CBS official apologized at the beginning of the new segment. Many called it too little, too late. Some said they find it hard to believe that no one at CBS apparently thought this episode would be offensive. Actually, knowing the insensitive makeup of the networks, were not that surprised. Networks will do almost anything for ratings, and if it happens that they offend somebody, so what. The pressure on the network was so bad that it obviously had to apologize, but that doesnt absolve the executives from allowing this sort of thing on the air. Were sure that many Vietnam veterans, including those from this area, were among those offended. And we hope that the networks learn a lesson from this. Past wars and their effects still linger in the minds of people. An extra effort should be made not to disturb them.

Maryann Rohde Ocala GUEST COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN Americans have forgotten about the Iraq war, which began 10 years ago this week, and the Afghan war, the longest in American history, but the U.S. government is still throwing its weight around in both countries. The Iraq war, the pretext for which was nonexistent weapons of mass destruction, officially ended in 2011 with the withdrawal of virtually all of Americas combat troops. But the havoc wreaked by the U.S. invasion and regime change goes on. Over a hundred thousand Iraqis were killed in the war itself, but many more died in the aftermath from sectarian violence and the obliterated infrastructure. (Iraq had never recovered from the destruction inflicted by the U.S. government in the 1991 Gulf War and in the decade of sanctions related to it.) Millions fled their homes. The U.S. occupation unleashed bitter sectarian violence, complete with U.S.-trained death squads, leading the numerically dominant Shiite Muslims (who are friendly to Iran) to cleanse the Sunnis from Baghdad. A Sunni insurgency against the occupation inflicted heavy casualties until American money managed to have the guns turned on the al-Qaeda affiliate, which was not in Iraq before the U.S. The disasters that U.S. intervention created PLEASESEERICHMAN PAGE9

On the American side, the deaths approached 4,500, with tens of thousands shattered in body and spirit. For the U.S. taxpayer, the price is over a trillion dollars, with billions lost to sheer corruption in the so-called rebuilding. The enormity of the crime committed by the Bush administration, with the complicity of cheerleading politicians (Republican and Democrat), journalists, and foreign-policy experts cannot be adequately calculated and the consequences are not all in. The country is now ruled by a corrupt, authoritarian, and brutal government. The infrastructure is a mess, with water, sanitation, and electricity unreliable. Most significant, the violence continues. Car bombings are common, and the al-Qaeda affiliate is active again so active that the CIA is ramping up support to elite Iraqi antiterrorism units, the Wall Street Journal reports. (And you thought the American war was over!) The irony is that these al-Qaeda fighters have been on the American side in the efforts to overthrow Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi and Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. If the Iraqi catastrophe isnt enough to destroy ones confidence in big government, what would it take? Meanwhile, in Afghanistans capital, Kabul, 300 residents of Wardak province recently held a demonstration demanding that the U.S. government remove its special-operations forces from the province because of the violence they are believed to be supporting. Last month Afghanistans president, Hamid Karzai, gave the Americans until March 10 to leave the province, but so far they have not left and Karzai is willing to compromise. The order came after complaints about raids by U.S.trained Afghan squads that led to the disappearance of Wardak residents. RICHMAN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Nine men disappeared after one such nighttime raid. Murder and torture have also been alleged. The New York Times reports that the influential Ulema Council issued a threatening statement, which said, If the Americans once again do not honor their commitments and keep on disobeying, then this will be considered as an occupation, and they may expect to see a reaction to their action. The Times added that the statement referred to American forces in Afghanistan as infidels, echoing language used by the Taliban. The U.S. command denies the allegations, and an investigation is underway. It should be noted, however, that the U.S. military trained and supported similarly brutal militias (death squads) in Iraq, just as it did in Latin America in the 1980s. Whatever the investigation reveals, the controversy demonstrates the perils of invasion and occupation. People resent foreign forces on their soil, and the Afghans are no exception. They have driven out foreigners many times in the past, most recently the powerful Soviet Union. U.S. officials say the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were key to national security after 9/11. Even Barack Obama, who built a presidential campaign on opposing the Iraq war, claims it did much good after all. Nonsense. The 9/11 attacks were criminal acts intended as reprisals for Americansponsored oppression in the Middle East. The U.S. response has not made America safer it has created new enemies. What did you expect of the corrupt, power-hungry incompetents who call themselves American public servants? Next on the agenda: Iran. Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) in Fairfax, Va. GUEST COMMENTARY BY GLENN MOLLETTE I am happy for anyone to come to the United States. We are truly a great country. Ive been further convinced of this by visiting other countries. There are some wonderful places but I always feel better when I am on American soil. Our country has issues but nothing like those faced by most other countries. I can understand why people want to come here. Many of them are desperate to get into our country. All are hoping for a better life. I havent traveled out of the country very much but I have been to a few places. Whenever I travel abroad I make sure that I have my passport and any necessary visa that the country requires. I wouldnt dream of trying to go any other way. I am amazed at the millions of people who risk it all to enter America illegally with little to no financial means to survive when they get here. I am in favor of helping people but they should come here legally. Entering the country without the proper documents is breaking the law. People who hire those who are here illegally are encouraging their illegal presence in our country. I can appreciate immigration reform. I dont believe the process should take Immigrants need to arrive legally PLEASESEEIMMIGRANTS PAGE10 E The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: What does the budget sequester that recently took hold mean for the environment? Jane Burgos, Los Angeles, CA The sequester that went into effect March 1 is a budget measure that cuts federal spending across the board to the tune of $85 billion, meaning every federal agency is affected and must reduce discretionary spending. Indeed, the cuts are already having a negative impact on everything from air quality monitoring to extreme weather response capability to staffing at national parks. Some of the harshest cuts are starting to kick in at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). On the chopping block there are some critical air monitoring sites that check for dangerous pollutants like ozone and particulate matter, as well as funding the agency has traditionally given states to monitor their own air quality. The agency is also reducing the number of staffers tasked with monitoring compliance with environmental laws, and will do around 1,000 fewer inspections accordingly in 2013. Meanwhile, sequester-based cuts to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) mean reduced response efforts following weather disasters, which are on the rise due to climate change. Likewise, cuts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration mean less funding for maintenance and operations of some weather-monitoring systems, including the national radar network used for tornado warnings, and a delay in launching two new satellites designed to help track severe weather events like hurricanes. Also, sequester-based cuts to funding for the repair or replacement of decaying water and wastewater infrastructure are putting local drinking water at risk in communities from coast to coast. One way well feel the pain this summer is via staff cuts and closures at national parks and historic sites. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says the sequester is responsible for an indefinite delay in reopening the Statue of Liberty after Hurricane Sandy (though as of this writing Liberty Island will re-open July 4 while Ellis Island will remain closed) and for undermining his ability to fight fires and clean up after storms. The sequester also means less natural resource management. Fewer funds for fishery stock assessments means Alaskan fisheries may remain closed for longer than needed given lack of data on fish runs. And sequester cuts reduce efforts to combat illegal overfishing. Meanwhile, the Department of Agriculture will treat 200,000 fewer acres this summer for hazardous fuel, meaning a higher risk of wildfires. On the energy front, outgoing Energy Secretary Steven Chu reports that the sequester jeopardizes ongoing research into increasing automobile fuel efficiency and reducing gasoline consumption, in turn slowing down the countrys quest for energy independence. Also, less funding means less oversight of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for natural gas and research into the environmental impacts of the practice. Green group leaders are especially annoyed that under the sequester oil companies get to keep billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies while drastic budget cuts limit the EPAs ability to monitor, limit and clean up the pollution they cause. Perhaps the one silver lining is a slowdown in the issuance of new off-shore oil and gas development permits given cuts at the Department of Energy.

years. On the other hand we should not hand out citizenship like penny candy on Halloween. Its worth something to be an American. My wifes grandfather was once held as a prisoner of war during World War II in the Philippines. He paid a heavy price for America. My brother fought in Vietnam and a neighbor friend was killed in Vietnam. Another friend was left for dead after being thrust with a bayonet in Korea. He survived that experience to be shot on two different occasions in Vietnam. Many Americans have sacrificed their lives for America. Families today live with the sacrifice of giving up their loved ones for America. I think about how hard Americans have worked to make and keep this country free. Think of not only the wars but also the sacrifices of every generation that has battled to keep America free, strong, and the kind of place desired by nationalities around the world. American freedom has not come easy and there will be nothing easy about preserving who we are and what we have. To just pass out citizenship to anybody and everybody who crosses our border legally or illegally without going through a fair and just process is a slap in the face of every soldier who has died for this country. Its a slap in the face of every American who has spent his life filling out tax reforms, paying untold fortunes of taxes to the government and abiding by the law. I am thrilled that people want to come to America. Just please abide by the law and make our country better. America is here for you. Come one and come all. Salute our flag, carry your fair share of taxes, serve in our military and help us keep this country free and strong.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 30 ~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com THE STRIKER -By Clive Cussler An unlikely undercover investigator posing as a miner in 1902 West Virginia is tall, handsome, and very blonde Isaac Bell on the case for the Van Dorn Detective Agency. Cusslers daring protagonist begins by attempting to stop a runaway train of tipple cars and is almost killed: The swaying coal car Isaac Bell clung to scraped the sides of the tunnel. Bell pressed himself tight against the cold steel to minimize the distance his body would travel at the moment of impact. Suddenly the train jumped the tracks. Metal shrieked as it battered the side of the tunnel and threatened to buck him off like a maddened bronco. Instead, it saved the young detectives life. Although fingers point at the striking miners in the area as the cause of the accident, Bell suspects a villainous provocateur determined to start a war to wipe out striking miners and their suffering families. Whereas the unions were organizing to bring better pay and better conditions to coal miners, the mine owners wanted to control the countrys entire supply of coal by breaking the unions once and for all. Bells problem is staying undercover while trying to help these desperate miners. Most of the riveting action in this book occurs during the first half. Thereafter, things get talky as Bell and Van Dorn detectives plot how to trap the provocateur. True Cussler fans tell me I made a mistake to start with The Striker even though its a prequel. A better choice, they say, is The Chase or The Wrecker. And even some of these fans express disappointment in this latest addition to the Isaac Bell saga and with good reason. Although the potential was there for an exciting novel, much of it is bloated with needless detail. Even so, theres something here for history buffs: inhumane, hazardous working conditions; ruthless coal and steel tycoons, and bloody warfare between labor and management. Then, off camera, President Teddy Roosevelt stepping in to support the miners. Probing the mines Bookmark Pat Wellington Alzheimers caregivers can join support groupIf you are a caregiver of a loved one with Dementia or Alzheimers disease, or have been recently diagnosed with the disease, Emeritus Ocala West would like to invite you to our monthly support groups.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I am what many people refer to as a purist. Many do not understand or know what a purist is so let me explain. No, a purist is not a Puritan, although I have nothing against Puritans and lean heavily in their direction. After all, I think it is better to be radical in the right direction than radical in the wrong direction as many people are today. I think the Puritans are getting a bad rap today. A purist, however, is someone who likes things just the way they are. No additives. No upgrades. No unnecessary changes. If my light bulb goes out, I want to change. That is the limit for change except maybe some of it that jingles in my pocket. Have you ever noticed that once you are comfortable with a computer program and really like it, someone will upgrade it until it is a completely different program with no relationship to the one you love? I hate that. When you got something that works, do not try to fix it. That is one of the basic rules of life. It is a rule I have been trying to explain to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage for years. I keep telling her I am not broken and therefore I do not need fixing. It has become the mission of her life to upgrade me. Can you imagine that? I love me the way I are. Some people are more like soup than anything else. Anything and everything goes into the pot. Not me. I like to savor something in its own environment. So, I am a purist in many regards, which can best be seen from my point of view in holidays. I like holidays but I do not like all of the upgrading and embellishments attached to every holiday you can think of except perhaps April 1. We know who celebrates that holiday. I would like to enjoy a holiday sometime without all of the extras. At Christmas time I want to celebrate the purpose of Christmas, I have no idea what a Santa Claus with reindeer, and Frosty the Snowman have to do with Christmas. This is rather confusing to me. What are we celebrating at Christmas? If you follow the commercials, you have no idea what holiday is being celebrated. For Easter, I would like to strip away all of the trappings, all of the hype and just celebrate it for what it is. What do the Easter bunny and the Easter egg have to do with Easter? I would be open to having a holiday for the Easter bunny, another holiday for the Easter egg and if you want to get technical, a holiday for Santa Claus, one for Rudolph the red nose reindeer and a separate one for Frosty the Snowman. When you put it all together, it just is rather confusing to me. I know who is in charge of these holidays. A holiday is not to celebrate but rather a holiday is to make money. Some people, and I will not mention any names, has never seen a holiday they did not want to make a buck. Maybe every holiday should be called Buck Day, where we celebrate and honor the almighty dollar. One more holiday I would suggest is one with no commercials and no selling whatsoever. A holiday where you would be fined dearly if you bought anything. A holiday from buying would suit me just fine. I know my critics will say that unless somebody buys something nobody makes anything. I have no problem with that. Wouldnt it be nice to have a holiday where that kind of thing was not front and center? The value of the Easter bunny is how much money it can make for the person sponsoring the holiday. I have seen a very interesting thing and I just cannot quite explain it. Just before the Easter holiday and leading up to it, all the Easter candy is at a premium price. Then, after Easter, this same Easter candy is at a hefty discount in the stores. What has changed? Could it be that the older something gets the less it is worth? Of course, I am beginning to feel that way myself, as I get older. (Thanks, Uncle Sam.) As a purist, I would like to celebrate a holiday for once without all of the rigmarole and shenanigans. A holiday where nobody will pester me. A holiday where I can shut out the world and enjoy the comforts of home and family. If I have not offended anybody up to now, let me take this a step further. It would be nice to have a holiday when all media would shut down. No television. No radio. No telephone or cell phone. No Internet. I know I am a radical, but I think it would be nice some time just to close out the world and remember the things that have value. Even Jesus understood this in his time. And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat (Mark 6:31 KJV). Therefore, I would like all of these things to hop along let me enjoy the things that really have value to me before I simply come apart. Rev. James L.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISE Call 854-3986 ADVERTISING S unday is Easter, an important day for Christians as they commemorate the resurrection of their savior, Jesus Christ, after his crucifixion on Good Friday. Its also a fun day for children as they go on Easter egg hunts and get baskets from the Easter bunny. The bunnies had been jumping up and down waiting their turn on Pun Alley.Bunny hopA man was driving along the highway, when he saw the Easter Bunny hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved, but unfortunately his car hit the rabbit and the bunnys basket of eggs went flying all over the place. The driver pulled over to the side of the road, and got out to see what had become of the Bunny carrying the basket. Much to his dismay, the colorful Bunny was dead. A woman saw the accident and pulled over. She saw the dead bunny and went to her car to get a spray can. She walked over to the limp dead Bunny and sprayed the entire contents of the can onto the little furry animal. Miraculously the Easter Bunny came to back life, jumped up, picked up the spilled eggs, waved its paw at the two people, and hopped on down the road. Fifty yards away the Easter Bunny stopped, turned around, waved and hopped on down the road another 50 yards, turned, waved, hopped another 50 yards and waved again. The man was astonished. He said to the woman, What was it that you sprayed on the Easter Bunny? The woman, reading the cans label said, Hair spray. Restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave.The adopted rabbit When an infant rabbit was orphaned a family of squirrels took it in and raised it as if it were one of their own. This adoption led to some peculiar rabbit behaviors, including a tendency for it to avoid jumping but rather to run around like its stepsiblings. As the rabbit got older, however, it soon faced an identity crisis. It went to its stepparents to discuss how it felt different from its stepsiblings, was unsure of its place in the universe, and was generally forlorn. Their response was, Dont scurry; be hoppy.Bunny TalesHelicopters providing flights between airports in the same city usually carry a rabbit on board because they take short hops. You can send a letter to the Easter Bunny by hare mail. I suggested an egg fight on Easter. I got shelled. When the bunny turned 18 years old he joined the Hare Force. When Easter Bunny helpers make baskets they get two points, just like anyone else. A real cool rabbit is a hip hopper.Out on a limb Two mountaineers were climbing when their rope broke, leaving them dangling by some tree roots above a 2,000 foot fall. One said, Oh if only I had a little bunny here to blow in my face. The other climber replied, How would that help? You never heard of someone saved by a hares breath? Things I learned from the Easter BunnyDont put all your eggs in one basket. Walk softly and carry a big carrot. Everyone needs a friend who is all ears. Theres no such thing as too much candy. All work and no play can make you a basket case. Bank on it I was standing in line at the bank when there was a commotion at the counter. A woman was distressed, exclaiming, Where will I put my money? I have all my money and my mortgage here! What will happen to my mortgage? It turned out that she had misunderstood a small sign on the counter. The sign read: WE WILL BE CLOSED FOR GOOD FRIDAY.Secret After attending church, John met the preacher at the door. Greeting people as he always does, he grabbed John by the hand and pulled him aside. The pastor said, You need to join the Army of the Lord! John said, Im already in the Army of the Lord, Pastor. Pastor questioned, How come I dont see you except at Christmas and Easter? John whispered back, Im in the secret service.If youre not even in the Secret Service, give it a try and then move up to being in the Army of the Lord. Oak Run residents Dick and his wife Jane wish you a joyful Easter. The bunnies are jumping up and down Pun Alley Dick Frank Come join the fun at the eighth annual Cycling for Success bike ride on Saturday, April 13, starting at Lake Weir Middle School 10220 S.E.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com A sold out crowd of revelers packed the clubhouse at Cherrywood for the first annual Veterans Club Italian spaghetti dinner fundraiser. Some of the guests were dressed in traditional Italian attire while others mimicked the characters from Godfather. Bill and Ida Mahar sold raffle tickets; he made them an offer they couldnt refuse. Rich Hurley sold 50/50 tickets; making the collections in true Italian style of course. Most of the people at the full; brightly decorated tables brought Chianti or other libations so the mood was light and fun. Eve Houghtaling convinced her husband Jim to make 25 pounds of meatballs while she and others made 18 pounds of spaghetti noodles and over 12 gallons of sauce. Jim did a terrific job as the meatballs were spiced just right and had perfect consistency; the noodles tender; and the meat sauce was perfect. The food was lovingly prepared during the day Saturday so it was fresh; hot and delicious that evening. Nearly a score of volunteers served the dinner to the individual tables allowing everyone to enjoy their meal while it was still steaming from the kitchen. Salads and rolls accompanied the main course followed by an out-ofthis-world cake especially baked for the occasion by Frank Juarbe and David Rondinelli. Needless to say, no one left hungry. During the dinner Bob Mace traveled from table to table playing songs from old Italy enhancing the mood and the meal. People made requests; sang along and thoroughly enjoyed the personal touch he gave with his accordion music. After the meal, when the tables were cleared, Bob displayed his versatility and wide range of talent by moving to the keyboard. Starting with a medley of the Armed Forces, everyone saluted the various branches that our members have served in. A wide variety of music followed and everyone enjoyed the songs and tempos that he performed as they danced across the floor. Toward the end of the evening the winners were drawn for the various door prizes and the gift basket. The Italian basket of goodies was won by Marilyn Burke of Palm Cay who was not in attendance but still showed her support by buying tickets. Many of the guests went home with something special and all of the guests went home with special memories of a wonderful evening. The Veterans Club would like to thank first and foremost, our residents and friends for their strong and never ending support. In addition, a special thanks to our volunteers headed up by Eve and Jim Houghtaling. They were, Ralph and Norma Alexander; Gerald and Christl Giovanniello; Al Buechter; Sandee Spencer; Ruth and Rich Hurley; Dolly and Rich Juber; Sandra and Bill Brotherhood; Dick Francis; Ida and Bill Mahar; and Marti Duesel. As with nearly all of our events, this one brought in revenue for the Veterans Club but more importantly was a testament to the high regard that this community has for those who served and are still serving their country; county and community. We thank each and every one of you who took part. Veterans Club spaghetti dinner a total success Cherrywood John Everlove Veterans spaghetti dinner winners, Bill Mahar, Eve Houghtaling, Rich Hurley, Theresa Torrusio, Gene Wachsmuth, Marti Duesel, Jay OHern and Peggy Konar.

Floridas red light safety camera program is a proven law-enforcement tool that reduces dangerous T-bone crashes and changes the behavior of those drivers who choose to run red lights says the Forida League of Cities, which supports efforts to reform the current programs and believes CS/SB 1342, in its current form, strikes the right balance. CS/SB 1342, sponsored by Sen. Joseph Abruzzo, improves the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act through careful refinements to the programs procedures while keeping its enforcement power intact. Among its improvements to the Wandall Act, CS/SB 1342 clarifies the transfer of liability process to assist drivers, vehicle owners and rental car customers; describes specific instances when a rightturn violation should be issued by creating a standard that includes a clear danger to individuals or other vehicles in the intersection; and codifies the criteria for yellow light timing to those set by the National Institute of Transportation Engineers. These changes and others answer the challenges raised against red light safety cameras with practical and common-sense solutions that lawmakers and the public should support.

Land bridge walk and horse farm visitTwelve Marion Landing residents got together on Friday, Mar. 15, for a walk to the Land Bridge. The walk was organized by Carolyn Salzlein and she submitted the following: [We] started out on a chilly March morning for a walk to the Land Bridge. The weather got warmer as we made our way through the woods under the large Oaks. At the Land Bridge, we waved to the passing car, and they answered with a beep of their horns. After the walk we went to a local horse farm and saw many of the new babies enjoying the warmth of the sun with their moms. What a joy to see them frolicking around and getting used to their long legs. Some were less than a week old! Paper tole classJoan DeWitt is bringing her expertise to the Lifestyle Center and instructing residents in the art of paper tole. Paper tole is the art of handcrafting three-dimensional pictures from flat prints. By using an Exacto knife to skillfully cut shapes, multiple pieces of paper are layered onto an image until a three-dimensional version of the image emerges. Stemming from decoupage, this paper craft originated sometime in the 18th century and involved cutting pieces of paper and shellacking them onto wooden furniture and other objects. Paper tole has reemerged over the years in several different forms; and while framed prints are most popular, people often employ the same techniques used in making paper tole when creating handmade greeting cards and other paper crafts. Joan has been doing paper tole for over 15 years and has handcrafted beautiful framed prints which are often on display in our Lifestyle Center and at our Craft Fairs. We look forward to seeing the finished projects this group has created. See photo Page 22.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com husband for an old-maid sister Lizzi Finney, played by Paula Adwell. Her sisters, Birdi, Milli, Prissi and Tilli, played by Betty Kraus, Mary Buckoski, Dotty Bouchet and Carol Mock, are anxious for their sister to marry, as they must wait for her, as eldest, to marry before they can. Mama and Papa Finney, played by Fran Szutar and Bob West, are beside themselves trying to get Lizzi a beau, and Grandmama, played by Shirley Martin, does her best and tries to get Mr. Holland the Postman, played by Bob Fink, involved. But its Fitz, played by Jim Adwell, who finally wins Lizzis betrothal. The cast is rounded out with the Gentlemen, Bobby, Billy, Jasper and Tommy, played by Jim Pohlers, George Taragna, Frank Szutar and Ed Gorsky, the friends Holli, Molli and Polli Biddington, played by Joan Ritter, Doris Gorsky and Joy Asashon, the Trolley Conductor, played by Paul Scerri, and Dave Ritter and Buck Buckoski as the Trolley Brakemen. Along with the cast, there were many support staff which made this production possible. The trolley designer/builder was Ed Gorsky; prompters were Mary Jane West and Ethel Taragna; lighting by Joan Dopler; sound by Art Dopler; seamstress was Joy Asashon; piano by Ardith Thomas; video by Don Kraus; tickets by Ken Talbert; ticket sales headed by Joan Dopler; setup by Larry Keables and committee; and refreshments by Rachel Glenn and Nancy Rife. Little Theatre started performing in December of 1996, with many of the same loyal performers since the beginning, said Donna Taylor. Thanks to everyone for their many hours of rehearsal, their many talents, and their dedication to Marion Landing. And thank you, Donna. The community always looks forward to Little Theatres productions and appreciates all their hard work. Land bridge walk and horse farm visitTwelve Marion Landing residents got together on Friday, Mar. 15, for a walk to the Land Bridge. The walk was organized by Carolyn Salzlein and she submitted the following: [We] started out on a chilly March morning for a walk to the Land Bridge. The weather got warmer as we made our way through the woods under the large Oaks. At the Land Bridge, we waved to the passing car, and they answered with a beep of their horns. After the walk we went to a local horse farm and saw many of the new babies enjoying the warmth of the sun with their moms. What a joy to see them frolicking around and getting used to their long legs. Some were less than a week old! Paper tole classJoan DeWitt is bringing her expertise to the Lifestyle Center and instructing residents in the art of paper tole. Paper tole is the art of handcrafting three-dimensional pictures from flat prints. By using an Exacto knife to skillfully cut shapes, multiple pieces of paper are layered onto an image until a three-dimensional version of the image emerges. Stemming from decoupage, this paper craft originated sometime in the 18th century and involved cutting pieces of paper and shellacking them onto wooden furniture and other objects. Paper tole has reemerged over the years in several different forms; and while framed prints are most popular, people often employ the same techniques used in making paper tole when creating handmade greeting cards and other paper crafts. Joan has been doing paper tole for over 15 years and has handcrafted beautiful framed prints which are often on display in our Lifestyle Center and at our Craft Fairs. We look forward to seeing the finished projects this group has created. See photo Page 22.

Floridas red light safety camera program is a proven law-enforcement tool that reduces dangerous T-bone crashes and changes the behavior of those drivers who choose to run red lights says the Forida League of Cities, which supports efforts to reform the current programs and believes CS/SB 1342, in its current form, strikes the right balance. CS/SB 1342, sponsored by Sen. Joseph Abruzzo, improves the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act through careful refinements to the programs procedures while keeping its enforcement power intact. Among its improvements to the Wandall Act, CS/SB 1342 clarifies the transfer of liability process to assist drivers, vehicle owners and rental car customers; describes specific instances when a rightturn violation should be issued by creating a standard that includes a clear danger to individuals or other vehicles in the intersection; and codifies the criteria for yellow light timing to those set by the National Institute of Transportation Engineers. These changes and others answer the challenges raised against red light safety cameras with practical and common-sense solutions that lawmakers and the public should support.

Rich Hurley sold 50/50 tickets; making the collections in true Italian style of course. Most of the people at the full; brightly decorated tables brought Chianti or other libations so the mood was light and fun. Eve Houghtaling convinced her husband Jim to make 25 pounds of meatballs while she and others made 18 pounds of spaghetti noodles and over 12 gallons of sauce. Jim did a terrific job as the meatballs were spiced just right and had perfect consistency; the noodles tender; and the meat sauce was perfect. The food was lovingly prepared during the day Saturday so it was fresh; hot and delicious that evening. Nearly a score of volunteers served the dinner to the individual tables allowing everyone to enjoy their meal while it was still steaming from the kitchen. Salads and rolls accompanied the main course followed by an out-ofthis-world cake especially baked for the occasion by Frank Juarbe and David Rondinelli. Needless to say, no one left hungry. During the dinner Bob Mace traveled from table to table playing songs from old Italy enhancing the mood and the meal. People made requests; sang along and thoroughly enjoyed the personal touch he gave with his accordion music. After the meal, when the tables were cleared, Bob displayed his versatility and wide range of talent by moving to the keyboard. Starting with a medley of the Armed Forces, everyone saluted the various branches that our members have served in. A wide variety of music followed and everyone enjoyed the songs and tempos that he performed as they danced across the floor. Toward the end of the evening the winners were drawn for the various door prizes and the gift basket. The Italian basket of goodies was won by Marilyn Burke of Palm Cay who was not in attendance but still showed her support by buying tickets. Many of the guests went home with something special and all of the guests went home with special memories of a wonderful evening. The Veterans Club would like to thank first and foremost, our residents and friends for their strong and never ending support. In addition, a special thanks to our volunteers headed up by Eve and Jim Houghtaling. They were, Ralph and Norma Alexander; Gerald and Christl Giovanniello; Al Buechter; Sandee Spencer; Ruth and Rich Hurley; Dolly and Rich Juber; Sandra and Bill Brotherhood; Dick Francis; Ida and Bill Mahar; and Marti Duesel. As with nearly all of our events, this one brought in revenue for the Veterans Club but more importantly was a testament to the high regard that this community has for those who served and are still serving their country; county and community. We thank each and every one of you who took part.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISE Call 854-3986 ADVERTISING S unday is Easter, an important day for Christians as they commemorate the resurrection of their savior, Jesus Christ, after his crucifixion on Good Friday. Its also a fun day for children as they go on Easter egg hunts and get baskets from the Easter bunny. The bunnies had been jumping up and down waiting their turn on Pun Alley.Bunny hopA man was driving along the highway, when he saw the Easter Bunny hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved, but unfortunately his car hit the rabbit and the bunnys basket of eggs went flying all over the place. The driver pulled over to the side of the road, and got out to see what had become of the Bunny carrying the basket. Much to his dismay, the colorful Bunny was dead. A woman saw the accident and pulled over. She saw the dead bunny and went to her car to get a spray can. She walked over to the limp dead Bunny and sprayed the entire contents of the can onto the little furry animal. Miraculously the Easter Bunny came to back life, jumped up, picked up the spilled eggs, waved its paw at the two people, and hopped on down the road. Fifty yards away the Easter Bunny stopped, turned around, waved and hopped on down the road another 50 yards, turned, waved, hopped another 50 yards and waved again. The man was astonished. He said to the woman, What was it that you sprayed on the Easter Bunny? The woman, reading the cans label said, Hair spray. Restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave.The adopted rabbit When an infant rabbit was orphaned a family of squirrels took it in and raised it as if it were one of their own. This adoption led to some peculiar rabbit behaviors, including a tendency for it to avoid jumping but rather to run around like its stepsiblings. As the rabbit got older, however, it soon faced an identity crisis. It went to its stepparents to discuss how it felt different from its stepsiblings, was unsure of its place in the universe, and was generally forlorn. Their response was, Dont scurry; be hoppy.Bunny TalesHelicopters providing flights between airports in the same city usually carry a rabbit on board because they take short hops. You can send a letter to the Easter Bunny by hare mail. I suggested an egg fight on Easter. I got shelled. When the bunny turned 18 years old he joined the Hare Force. When Easter Bunny helpers make baskets they get two points, just like anyone else. A real cool rabbit is a hip hopper.Out on a limb Two mountaineers were climbing when their rope broke, leaving them dangling by some tree roots above a 2,000 foot fall. One said, Oh if only I had a little bunny here to blow in my face. The other climber replied, How would that help? You never heard of someone saved by a hares breath? Things I learned from the Easter BunnyDont put all your eggs in one basket. Walk softly and carry a big carrot. Everyone needs a friend who is all ears. Theres no such thing as too much candy. All work and no play can make you a basket case. Bank on it I was standing in line at the bank when there was a commotion at the counter. A woman was distressed, exclaiming, Where will I put my money? I have all my money and my mortgage here! What will happen to my mortgage? It turned out that she had misunderstood a small sign on the counter. The sign read: WE WILL BE CLOSED FOR GOOD FRIDAY.Secret After attending church, John met the preacher at the door. Greeting people as he always does, he grabbed John by the hand and pulled him aside. The pastor said, You need to join the Army of the Lord! John said, Im already in the Army of the Lord, Pastor. Pastor questioned, How come I dont see you except at Christmas and Easter? John whispered back, Im in the secret service.If youre not even in the Secret Service, give it a try and then move up to being in the Army of the Lord. Oak Run residents Dick and his wife Jane wish you a joyful Easter.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I am what many people refer to as a purist. Many do not understand or know what a purist is so let me explain. No, a purist is not a Puritan, although I have nothing against Puritans and lean heavily in their direction. After all, I think it is better to be radical in the right direction than radical in the wrong direction as many people are today. I think the Puritans are getting a bad rap today. A purist, however, is someone who likes things just the way they are. No additives. No upgrades. No unnecessary changes. If my light bulb goes out, I want to change. That is the limit for change except maybe some of it that jingles in my pocket. Have you ever noticed that once you are comfortable with a computer program and really like it, someone will upgrade it until it is a completely different program with no relationship to the one you love? I hate that. When you got something that works, do not try to fix it. That is one of the basic rules of life. It is a rule I have been trying to explain to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage for years. I keep telling her I am not broken and therefore I do not need fixing. It has become the mission of her life to upgrade me. Can you imagine that? I love me the way I are. Some people are more like soup than anything else. Anything and everything goes into the pot. Not me. I like to savor something in its own environment. So, I am a purist in many regards, which can best be seen from my point of view in holidays. I like holidays but I do not like all of the upgrading and embellishments attached to every holiday you can think of except perhaps April 1. We know who celebrates that holiday. I would like to enjoy a holiday sometime without all of the extras. At Christmas time I want to celebrate the purpose of Christmas, I have no idea what a Santa Claus with reindeer, and Frosty the Snowman have to do with Christmas. This is rather confusing to me. What are we celebrating at Christmas? If you follow the commercials, you have no idea what holiday is being celebrated. For Easter, I would like to strip away all of the trappings, all of the hype and just celebrate it for what it is. What do the Easter bunny and the Easter egg have to do with Easter? I would be open to having a holiday for the Easter bunny, another holiday for the Easter egg and if you want to get technical, a holiday for Santa Claus, one for Rudolph the red nose reindeer and a separate one for Frosty the Snowman. When you put it all together, it just is rather confusing to me. I know who is in charge of these holidays. A holiday is not to celebrate but rather a holiday is to make money. Some people, and I will not mention any names, has never seen a holiday they did not want to make a buck. Maybe every holiday should be called Buck Day, where we celebrate and honor the almighty dollar. One more holiday I would suggest is one with no commercials and no selling whatsoever. A holiday where you would be fined dearly if you bought anything. A holiday from buying would suit me just fine. I know my critics will say that unless somebody buys something nobody makes anything. I have no problem with that. Wouldnt it be nice to have a holiday where that kind of thing was not front and center? The value of the Easter bunny is how much money it can make for the person sponsoring the holiday. I have seen a very interesting thing and I just cannot quite explain it. Just before the Easter holiday and leading up to it, all the Easter candy is at a premium price. Then, after Easter, this same Easter candy is at a hefty discount in the stores. What has changed? Could it be that the older something gets the less it is worth? Of course, I am beginning to feel that way myself, as I get older. (Thanks, Uncle Sam.) As a purist, I would like to celebrate a holiday for once without all of the rigmarole and shenanigans. A holiday where nobody will pester me. A holiday where I can shut out the world and enjoy the comforts of home and family. If I have not offended anybody up to now, let me take this a step further. It would be nice to have a holiday when all media would shut down. No television. No radio. No telephone or cell phone. No Internet. I know I am a radical, but I think it would be nice some time just to close out the world and remember the things that have value. Even Jesus understood this in his time. And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat (Mark 6:31 KJV). Therefore, I would like all of these things to hop along let me enjoy the things that really have value to me before I simply come apart. Rev. James L.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 30 ~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com THE STRIKER -By Clive Cussler An unlikely undercover investigator posing as a miner in 1902 West Virginia is tall, handsome, and very blonde Isaac Bell on the case for the Van Dorn Detective Agency. Cusslers daring protagonist begins by attempting to stop a runaway train of tipple cars and is almost killed: The swaying coal car Isaac Bell clung to scraped the sides of the tunnel. Bell pressed himself tight against the cold steel to minimize the distance his body would travel at the moment of impact. Suddenly the train jumped the tracks. Metal shrieked as it battered the side of the tunnel and threatened to buck him off like a maddened bronco. Instead, it saved the young detectives life. Although fingers point at the striking miners in the area as the cause of the accident, Bell suspects a villainous provocateur determined to start a war to wipe out striking miners and their suffering families. Whereas the unions were organizing to bring better pay and better conditions to coal miners, the mine owners wanted to control the countrys entire supply of coal by breaking the unions once and for all. Bells problem is staying undercover while trying to help these desperate miners. Most of the riveting action in this book occurs during the first half. Thereafter, things get talky as Bell and Van Dorn detectives plot how to trap the provocateur. True Cussler fans tell me I made a mistake to start with The Striker even though its a prequel. A better choice, they say, is The Chase or The Wrecker. And even some of these fans express disappointment in this latest addition to the Isaac Bell saga and with good reason. Although the potential was there for an exciting novel, much of it is bloated with needless detail. Even so, theres something here for history buffs: inhumane, hazardous working conditions; ruthless coal and steel tycoons, and bloody warfare between labor and management. Then, off camera, President Teddy Roosevelt stepping in to support the miners.

years. On the other hand we should not hand out citizenship like penny candy on Halloween. Its worth something to be an American. My wifes grandfather was once held as a prisoner of war during World War II in the Philippines. He paid a heavy price for America. My brother fought in Vietnam and a neighbor friend was killed in Vietnam. Another friend was left for dead after being thrust with a bayonet in Korea. He survived that experience to be shot on two different occasions in Vietnam. Many Americans have sacrificed their lives for America. Families today live with the sacrifice of giving up their loved ones for America. I think about how hard Americans have worked to make and keep this country free. Think of not only the wars but also the sacrifices of every generation that has battled to keep America free, strong, and the kind of place desired by nationalities around the world. American freedom has not come easy and there will be nothing easy about preserving who we are and what we have. To just pass out citizenship to anybody and everybody who crosses our border legally or illegally without going through a fair and just process is a slap in the face of every soldier who has died for this country. Its a slap in the face of every American who has spent his life filling out tax reforms, paying untold fortunes of taxes to the government and abiding by the law. I am thrilled that people want to come to America. Just please abide by the law and make our country better. America is here for you. Come one and come all. Salute our flag, carry your fair share of taxes, serve in our military and help us keep this country free and strong.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 32 ~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com invasion. On the American side, the deaths approached 4,500, with tens of thousands shattered in body and spirit. For the U.S. taxpayer, the price is over a trillion dollars, with billions lost to sheer corruption in the so-called rebuilding. The enormity of the crime committed by the Bush administration, with the complicity of cheerleading politicians (Republican and Democrat), journalists, and foreign-policy experts cannot be adequately calculated and the consequences are not all in. The country is now ruled by a corrupt, authoritarian, and brutal government. The infrastructure is a mess, with water, sanitation, and electricity unreliable. Most significant, the violence continues. Car bombings are common, and the al-Qaeda affiliate is active again so active that the CIA is ramping up support to elite Iraqi antiterrorism units, the Wall Street Journal reports. (And you thought the American war was over!) The irony is that these al-Qaeda fighters have been on the American side in the efforts to overthrow Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi and Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. If the Iraqi catastrophe isnt enough to destroy ones confidence in big government, what would it take? Meanwhile, in Afghanistans capital, Kabul, 300 residents of Wardak province recently held a demonstration demanding that the U.S. government remove its special-operations forces from the province because of the violence they are believed to be supporting. Last month Afghanistans president, Hamid Karzai, gave the Americans until March 10 to leave the province, but so far they have not left and Karzai is willing to compromise. The order came after complaints about raids by U.S.trained Afghan squads that led to the disappearance of Wardak residents. RICHMAN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Nine men disappeared after one such nighttime raid. Murder and torture have also been alleged. The New York Times reports that the influential Ulema Council issued a threatening statement, which said, If the Americans once again do not honor their commitments and keep on disobeying, then this will be considered as an occupation, and they may expect to see a reaction to their action. The Times added that the statement referred to American forces in Afghanistan as infidels, echoing language used by the Taliban. The U.S. command denies the allegations, and an investigation is underway. It should be noted, however, that the U.S. military trained and supported similarly brutal militias (death squads) in Iraq, just as it did in Latin America in the 1980s. Whatever the investigation reveals, the controversy demonstrates the perils of invasion and occupation. People resent foreign forces on their soil, and the Afghans are no exception. They have driven out foreigners many times in the past, most recently the powerful Soviet Union. U.S. officials say the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were key to national security after 9/11. Even Barack Obama, who built a presidential campaign on opposing the Iraq war, claims it did much good after all. Nonsense. The 9/11 attacks were criminal acts intended as reprisals for Americansponsored oppression in the Middle East. The U.S. response has not made America safer it has created new enemies. What did you expect of the corrupt, power-hungry incompetents who call themselves American public servants? Next on the agenda: Iran. Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) in Fairfax, Va. GUEST COMMENTARY BY GLENN MOLLETTE I am happy for anyone to come to the United States. We are truly a great country. Ive been further convinced of this by visiting other countries. There are some wonderful places but I always feel better when I am on American soil. Our country has issues but nothing like those faced by most other countries. I can understand why people want to come here. Many of them are desperate to get into our country. All are hoping for a better life. I havent traveled out of the country very much but I have been to a few places. Whenever I travel abroad I make sure that I have my passport and any necessary visa that the country requires. I wouldnt dream of trying to go any other way. I am amazed at the millions of people who risk it all to enter America illegally with little to no financial means to survive when they get here. I am in favor of helping people but they should come here legally. Entering the country without the proper documents is breaking the law. People who hire those who are here illegally are encouraging their illegal presence in our country. I can appreciate immigration reform. I dont believe the process should take Immigrants need to arrive legally PLEASESEEIMMIGRANTS PAGE10 E The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: What does the budget sequester that recently took hold mean for the environment? Jane Burgos, Los Angeles, CA The sequester that went into effect March 1 is a budget measure that cuts federal spending across the board to the tune of $85 billion, meaning every federal agency is affected and must reduce discretionary spending. Indeed, the cuts are already having a negative impact on everything from air quality monitoring to extreme weather response capability to staffing at national parks. Some of the harshest cuts are starting to kick in at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). On the chopping block there are some critical air monitoring sites that check for dangerous pollutants like ozone and particulate matter, as well as funding the agency has traditionally given states to monitor their own air quality. The agency is also reducing the number of staffers tasked with monitoring compliance with environmental laws, and will do around 1,000 fewer inspections accordingly in 2013. Meanwhile, sequester-based cuts to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) mean reduced response efforts following weather disasters, which are on the rise due to climate change. Likewise, cuts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration mean less funding for maintenance and operations of some weather-monitoring systems, including the national radar network used for tornado warnings, and a delay in launching two new satellites designed to help track severe weather events like hurricanes. Also, sequester-based cuts to funding for the repair or replacement of decaying water and wastewater infrastructure are putting local drinking water at risk in communities from coast to coast. One way well feel the pain this summer is via staff cuts and closures at national parks and historic sites. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says the sequester is responsible for an indefinite delay in reopening the Statue of Liberty after Hurricane Sandy (though as of this writing Liberty Island will re-open July 4 while Ellis Island will remain closed) and for undermining his ability to fight fires and clean up after storms. The sequester also means less natural resource management. Fewer funds for fishery stock assessments means Alaskan fisheries may remain closed for longer than needed given lack of data on fish runs. And sequester cuts reduce efforts to combat illegal overfishing. Meanwhile, the Department of Agriculture will treat 200,000 fewer acres this summer for hazardous fuel, meaning a higher risk of wildfires. On the energy front, outgoing Energy Secretary Steven Chu reports that the sequester jeopardizes ongoing research into increasing automobile fuel efficiency and reducing gasoline consumption, in turn slowing down the countrys quest for energy independence. Also, less funding means less oversight of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for natural gas and research into the environmental impacts of the practice. Green group leaders are especially annoyed that under the sequester oil companies get to keep billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies while drastic budget cuts limit the EPAs ability to monitor, limit and clean up the pollution they cause. Perhaps the one silver lining is a slowdown in the issuance of new off-shore oil and gas development permits given cuts at the Department of Energy.

Then along came President Franklin Roosevelt elected four times. For most of the next 20 years Democrats controlled both houses of Congress. Republicans managed one brief takeover of both houses in 1947-49. President Harry Truman labeled it the donothing 80th Congress. The name has stuck ever since. President Roosevelts first New Deal (1933-34) was about ending alcohol prohibition, changing the money system, and creating economic recovery programs. The Works Progress Administration (WPA) was created to reduce 25 percent unemployment, an expensive but useful program which employed more then eight million people over ten years. Roosevelts second New Deal (1935-38) was a first step toward social democracy, but nobody used that term back then. Democrats leaned toward liberalism voting rights, equal rights, and government social services health care, food and shelter for the homeless. Senior citizens remember Mr. Roosevelt most favorably for initiating Social Security. Thirty years later, President Lyndon Johnson decided Social Security surpluses were a quiet source of revenue for funding the Vietnam War. Ever since, Congress has used Social Security taxes as a piggy bank to fund pet projects and other wars, issuing IOUs which cant be redeemed without borrowing real money. Additional major elements of a social democracy were in President Johnsons Great Society welfare legislation and social reforms. Mr. Johnson is remembered for a number of appreciated domestic programs Medicare, Medicaid, and federal funding of education. Republicans made two significant contributions toward social democracy: The Medicare Prescription Drug Act of 2003, which purchased a second term in the White House for George W. Bush and enriched pharmaceutical companies beyond their happiest dreams. And the Great Recession of 20062009, which elevated a half-term Democratic senator into two terms in the White House oval office. In time, President Obamas Health Care for America Plan will likely merge existing programs into a single national health administration perhaps a final step toward converting a 225 year old constitutional republic into an American social democracy. What is a social democracy? Its not socialism. Its social reform of a capitalist economy and a gradual transition of government to direct democracy. But thats an explanation for another time.

BORN THIS WEEK: Your natural gift for honest leadership earns you the respect and admiration of others. W hen asked if he had any political affiliation, humorist Will Rogers used to quip: I am not a member of any organized party. Im a Democrat. If he were alive today, Rogers could claim membership in either of two disorganized parties. Republicans didnt learn much from their disorganized politics under presidents Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover, which led to the Great Depression (19291939). During those three presidencies, Republicans controlled both houses of Congress (1921 to 1933). Republicans had no one else to blame for the Great Depression bank failures, collapse of the stock markets, 25% unemployment, and fearful retreat of consumers. The great drought of the 1930s made conditions even worse farm foreclosures, decreased trade, disappearance of agricultural jobs, and growth of a poverty class. W hen I was a kid, living up north, I always wondered how, on Feb. 2, some silly little animal in Pennsylvania could predict the weather. It was Groundhog Day, and supposedly if the groundhog saw his shadow and scurried back into his hole, there would be six more weeks of winter. If he didnt see his shadow, there would be an early spring. The biggest celebration is in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. In fact, a cult movie starring Bill Murray was made in 1993 featuring this festival and, indeed, a festival has built up around this holiday. The people in Pennsylvania take this quite seriously. So imagine their chagrin when the prosecuting attorney (similar to our state attorney and big cities district attorneys) of Butler County, Ohio, issued an indictment against Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog, for lying about winter. It seems that Phil said there would be an early spring, and last week and this week mid-Ohio, as well as Pennsylvania, was buried under several inches of snow. The tongue-in-cheek indictment from Ohio went even further it sought the death penalty against Phil. This, of course, raised the ire of the folks in Pennsylvania. They have sent a letter to Butler County, Ohio, with a cease and desist order, claiming that the prosecutor in Ohio had no jurisdiction over any event that happened in Pennsylvania. And you thought you had problems? Whats next extradition? Poor Phil. He was awakened from his winter hibernation by some guy in a funny hat and crazy outfit, pulled out of his cozy hole into the frozen tundra of Pennsylvania, given a quick look at the ground to see if his shadow was there, and then put back for the rest of his slumber. And what does he find upon his awakening? Only that a contract has been put out on him by the people of Ohio. While, of course, this is just a fun event, it does bring into focus the problems faced by weather forecasters. Just 11 days ago the local TV forecasters were telling us to get ready for a dry spell, with no rain for at least 12 days. Since then, weve had two fronts come through, the latest over the weekend, some with violent weather attached. The weather patterns have been a little strange, and as of this writing Monday our temperatures are dipping into jacket weather again. So while you consider the plight of weather forecasters, consider what Phil in Pennsylvania is going through. While we may blame the local forecasters for messing up our weekends, at least we dont put contracts out on them. But poor Phil hell have to look over his shoulder until the weather warms up.

I n case you wondered about the disconnect between the major television networks and the American public, there was an incident last week that should set you straight. CBS has a show called The Amazing Race, which is not high on our must see list. About a week ago, the episode of the show was set in Hanoi, North Vietnam. Among the scenes was a downed American jet from years ago. The racers also had to learn a song that the children of Hanoi sang to them, and some of the lyrics included Vietnam Communist Party is glorious. The light is guiding us to victory. Needless to say, many Americans, especially Vietnam veterans, were infuriated. There were demands to CBS for an apology, with social media playing a big part in the effort. The complaints included some from Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain, who was once a prisoner of war in Vietnam. Finally, on Sunday, one week after the Hanoi episode ran, a CBS official apologized at the beginning of the new segment. Many called it too little, too late. Some said they find it hard to believe that no one at CBS apparently thought this episode would be offensive. Actually, knowing the insensitive makeup of the networks, were not that surprised. Networks will do almost anything for ratings, and if it happens that they offend somebody, so what. The pressure on the network was so bad that it obviously had to apologize, but that doesnt absolve the executives from allowing this sort of thing on the air. Were sure that many Vietnam veterans, including those from this area, were among those offended. And we hope that the networks learn a lesson from this. Past wars and their effects still linger in the minds of people. An extra effort should be made not to disturb them.

Maryann Rohde Ocala GUEST COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN Americans have forgotten about the Iraq war, which began 10 years ago this week, and the Afghan war, the longest in American history, but the U.S. government is still throwing its weight around in both countries. The Iraq war, the pretext for which was nonexistent weapons of mass destruction, officially ended in 2011 with the withdrawal of virtually all of Americas combat troops. But the havoc wreaked by the U.S. invasion and regime change goes on. Over a hundred thousand Iraqis were killed in the war itself, but many more died in the aftermath from sectarian violence and the obliterated infrastructure. (Iraq had never recovered from the destruction inflicted by the U.S. government in the 1991 Gulf War and in the decade of sanctions related to it.) Millions fled their homes. The U.S. occupation unleashed bitter sectarian violence, complete with U.S.-trained death squads, leading the numerically dominant Shiite Muslims (who are friendly to Iran) to cleanse the Sunnis from Baghdad. A Sunni insurgency against the occupation inflicted heavy casualties until American money managed to have the guns turned on the al-Qaeda affiliate, which was not in Iraq before the U.S. The disasters that U.S. intervention created PLEASESEERICHMAN PAGE9

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 34 ~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Dear EarthTalk: Im getting my roof redone and have heard about solar shingles. Are they availableand are they practical for the Northeast? John Denson, Glastonbury, CTSolar shingles are photovoltaic cells designed to look like and integrate with conventional asphalt roof shingles. First commercially available in 2005, solar shingles were much more costly than traditional bolt-on photovoltaic panels, and thus were used mainly by those wanting to go solar but maintain a traditional roofline. But more recently solar shingles have become price-competitive with bolt-on panels, and are getting much more popular accordingly. Eco-conscious home and building owners might find solar shingles especially attractive when they are re-shingling anyway since the solar shingles also double as functional, protective and weatherproof roof shingles in their own right. The biggest name in solar shingles is Dows Powerhouse line, which uses cutting edge Copper Indium Gallium Selenide solar cells (aka thin-film solar) to turn sunlight into electricity via a supplied inverter box. The Powerhouse shingles generate 12 watts per square foot and are gridtied, meaning theyre designed for structures already connected to the power grid and can send excess power back to the grid. They are wireless, snap together and can be installed by regular roofing contractors just like (or alongside) conventional asphalt shingles (an electrician needs to set up the inverter box). Dow reports that a typical residential cluster of 350 solar singles on a roof could slash ones household electric bill by 40-60 percent. Such an installation can cost a homeowner over $20,000, but federal, state and local incentives can bring the cost to half that in some areas. Powerhouse shingles are currently available (from Dow-authorized contractors) in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Texas and Washington, D.C. Another leader in solar shingles is building products manufacturer CertainTeed. The companys Apollo line of gridtied monocrystalline solar shingles and roofing tiles offers efficiency similar to larger bolt-on photovoltaic arrays at around the same price (and incentives similar to those for Dow may also apply) but with less bulk: Each Apollo tile is less than an inch thick and will integrate with, replace, or lay on top of existing asphalt roof shingles or tiles and generate 12 watts of power per square foot. CertainTeed says a typical installation will save homeowners 40-70 percent on their electric bills. Their Apollo products are available across the U.S. but the company recommends using one of their authorized roofing contractors to make sure they are installed properly. Now is an especially good time to go solarshingles or otherwisebecause costs have started to come down and the federal government is still offering 30 percent tax credits with no cap on the purchase of solar electricity equipment. Twenty-seven states and several cities offer additional incentives that can get pricing on solar gear and installations down even lower. For more information check out the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE), a free online resource provided by the North Carolina Solar Center and IREC EARTH TALKCONTINUED FROM PAGE 32 TAI VIINIKKA, COURTESY FLICKRRecently solar shingles have become price-competitive with bolt-on panels, and are getting much more popular accordingly. On top of that, federal, state and local incentives can bring the cost down considerably more. Pictured: solar shingles from the Dow Powerhouse line. with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy.

The first will take place on Friday, April 12, at 11:30 a.m. at Buffet City. People from all walks of life who share an interest in our community and the welfare of all our people are invited to attend.

He will describe the groups current initiatives and introduce their project leaders. They include: Chris Altobello, president, Marion Education Association; Judy Etzler, Water Well Justice (water issues); Anita Frauenshuh, Amendment 11 activist on behalf of low income seniors; Pat Hawk, Pat Hawk Marketing (water issues); Whitfield Jenkins, vice president, local NAACP (Juvenile Justice); Nancy Noonan, president, Marions United for Public Education; Ray Seaman, online director, Progress Florida; and Mike Sizemore, retired railroad executive who advocates for local control of Munroe Hospital. Future speakers will include Cynthia Barnett, acclaimed author of Blue Revolution: Unmaking Americas Water Crisis. The nonpartisan group plans to invite other community leaders and opinion makers concerned with social justice and governmental issues of vital interest to the community such as poverty, racism, the environment, health care, the arts, technology and governmental reform. Buffet City is centrally located at the corner of State Road 200 and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard just west of U.S. Highway 441.

Trained by Catalog for OBS available PLEASESEEOBS, PAGE3 In the hope that civil discourse will lead to civic action, Justice Sandra Day OConnor during the course of her career always invited her colleagues to break bread with her. A group of concerned Marion County activists wishes to do likewise by expanding our community conversation about important issues of the day with a monthly luncheon speaker series to be known as The Friday Forum. The first will take place on Friday, April 12, at 11:30 a.m. at Buffet City. People from all walks of life who share an interest in our community and the welfare of all our people are invited to attend. Bruce Seaman, pastor at Fairfield Presbyterian Church and coordinator of Awake Marion, an affiliate of the statewide coalition of progressive groups known as Awake the State, will be the first speaker. He will describe the groups current initiatives and introduce their project leaders. They include: Chris Altobello, president, Marion Education Association; Judy Etzler, Water Well Justice (water issues); Anita Frauenshuh, Amendment 11 activist on behalf of low income seniors; Pat Hawk, Pat Hawk Marketing (water issues); Whitfield Jenkins, vice president, local NAACP (Juvenile Justice); Nancy Noonan, president, Marions United for Public Education; Ray Seaman, online director, Progress Florida; and Mike Sizemore, retired railroad executive who advocates for local control of Munroe Hospital. Future speakers will include Cynthia Barnett, acclaimed author of Blue Revolution: Unmaking Americas Water Crisis. The nonpartisan group plans to invite other community leaders and opinion makers concerned with social justice and governmental issues of vital interest to the community such as poverty, racism, the environment, health care, the arts, technology and governmental reform. Buffet City is centrally located at the corner of State Road 200 and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard just west of U.S. Highway 441. Attendees are asked to arrive at 11:30 a.m. to select their meal so that the program can begin promptly at noon. Buffet City will reserve one of its rooms for us depending upon the number expected. So please email FridayForumofMarionCounty@gmail.com or telephone Delphine Herbert at 352-873-9970 to let us know if you are coming.

Morris was arrested at 2:20 p.m. on Thursday, March 21. Morris is a suspect in the burglary of the Kwik King Food Store, 14725 S. U.S. Highway 441 in Ocala. Store workers secured the store at 11:30 p.m., Tuesday, March 19. When they returned at 6:30 a.m., Wednesday, March 20, they found Styrofoam on the floor and a hole in the roof. They discovered several cans of alcoholic beverage Four Loko, and Monster Energy drink on the floor. Deputies looked at the security video and saw a white male wearing jeans and a light colored shirt with black shoes coming through the hole in the ceiling. Marion County Sheriffs Office Detective Thomas Tingue identified the suspect as Jacob Morris. Detectives discovered Morris hiding inside a vacant home where he was arrested without incident.Adoption fraudJaime Suzanne Ritchhart, 31, of Ocala was charged with adoption fraud and grand theft. An adoption case manager contacted Marion County Sheriffs Office detectives to report Ritchhart signed an agreement to place her expected child up for adoption. The case manager told detectives Ritchhart provided paperwork indicating she was pregnant. Ritchhart received more than $7,100 up to that time. The official report indicates Ritchhart was not attending doctors appointments and states Ritchhart had a miscarriage. Marion County Sheriffs Office Detective Tony Watts interviewed Ritchhart, who said she was giving her child up for adoption and the adoption agency was paying her rent. Ritchhart said she was seven months pregnant and expected to have a baby in May. Once Ritchhart was shown medical records indicating she had a hysterectomy, she refused to talk and Ritchhart was arrested on March 20.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 34~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Dear EarthTalk: Im getting my roof redone and have heard about solar shingles. Are they availableand are they practical for the Northeast? John Denson, Glastonbury, CTSolar shingles are photovoltaic cells designed to look like and integrate with conventional asphalt roof shingles. First commercially available in 2005, solar shingles were much more costly than traditional bolt-on photovoltaic panels, and thus were used mainly by those wanting to go solar but maintain a traditional roofline. But more recently solar shingles have become price-competitive with bolt-on panels, and are getting much more popular accordingly. Eco-conscious home and building owners might find solar shingles especially attractive when they are re-shingling anyway since the solar shingles also double as functional, protective and weatherproof roof shingles in their own right. The biggest name in solar shingles is Dows Powerhouse line, which uses cutting edge Copper Indium Gallium Selenide solar cells (aka thin-film solar) to turn sunlight into electricity via a supplied inverter box. The Powerhouse shingles generate 12 watts per square foot and are gridtied, meaning theyre designed for structures already connected to the power grid and can send excess power back to the grid. They are wireless, snap together and can be installed by regular roofing contractors just like (or alongside) conventional asphalt shingles (an electrician needs to set up the inverter box). Dow reports that a typical residential cluster of 350 solar singles on a roof could slash ones household electric bill by 40-60 percent. Such an installation can cost a homeowner over $20,000, but federal, state and local incentives can bring the cost to half that in some areas. Powerhouse shingles are currently available (from Dow-authorized contractors) in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Texas and Washington, D.C. Another leader in solar shingles is building products manufacturer CertainTeed. The companys Apollo line of gridtied monocrystalline solar shingles and roofing tiles offers efficiency similar to larger bolt-on photovoltaic arrays at around the same price (and incentives similar to those for Dow may also apply) but with less bulk: Each Apollo tile is less than an inch thick and will integrate with, replace, or lay on top of existing asphalt roof shingles or tiles and generate 12 watts of power per square foot. CertainTeed says a typical installation will save homeowners 40-70 percent on their electric bills. Their Apollo products are available across the U.S. but the company recommends using one of their authorized roofing contractors to make sure they are installed properly. Now is an especially good time to go solarshingles or otherwisebecause costs have started to come down and the federal government is still offering 30 percent tax credits with no cap on the purchase of solar electricity equipment. Twenty-seven states and several cities offer additional incentives that can get pricing on solar gear and installations down even lower. For more information check out the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE), a free online resource provided by the North Carolina Solar Center and IREC EARTH TALKCONTINUED FROM PAGE 32 TAI VIINIKKA, COURTESY FLICKRRecently solar shingles have become price-competitive with bolt-on panels, and are getting much more popular accordingly. On top of that, federal, state and local incentives can bring the cost down considerably more. Pictured: solar shingles from the Dow Powerhouse line. with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy.

Then along came President Franklin Roosevelt elected four times. For most of the next 20 years Democrats controlled both houses of Congress. Republicans managed one brief takeover of both houses in 1947-49. President Harry Truman labeled it the donothing 80th Congress. The name has stuck ever since. President Roosevelts first New Deal (1933-34) was about ending alcohol prohibition, changing the money system, and creating economic recovery programs. The Works Progress Administration (WPA) was created to reduce 25 percent unemployment, an expensive but useful program which employed more then eight million people over ten years. Roosevelts second New Deal (1935-38) was a first step toward social democracy, but nobody used that term back then. Democrats leaned toward liberalism voting rights, equal rights, and government social services health care, food and shelter for the homeless. Senior citizens remember Mr. Roosevelt most favorably for initiating Social Security. Thirty years later, President Lyndon Johnson decided Social Security surpluses were a quiet source of revenue for funding the Vietnam War. Ever since, Congress has used Social Security taxes as a piggy bank to fund pet projects and other wars, issuing IOUs which cant be redeemed without borrowing real money. Additional major elements of a social democracy were in President Johnsons Great Society welfare legislation and social reforms. Mr. Johnson is remembered for a number of appreciated domestic programs Medicare, Medicaid, and federal funding of education. Republicans made two significant contributions toward social democracy: The Medicare Prescription Drug Act of 2003, which purchased a second term in the White House for George W. Bush and enriched pharmaceutical companies beyond their happiest dreams. And the Great Recession of 20062009, which elevated a half-term Democratic senator into two terms in the White House oval office. In time, President Obamas Health Care for America Plan will likely merge existing programs into a single national health administration perhaps a final step toward converting a 225 year old constitutional republic into an American social democracy. What is a social democracy? Its not socialism. Its social reform of a capitalist economy and a gradual transition of government to direct democracy. But thats an explanation for another time.

BORN THIS WEEK: Your natural gift for honest leadership earns you the respect and admiration of others. When asked if he had any political affiliation, humorist Will Rogers used to quip: I am not a member of any organized party. Im a Democrat. If he were alive today, Rogers could claim membership in either of two disorganized parties. Republicans didnt learn much from their disorganized politics under presidents Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover, which led to the Great Depression (19291939). During those three presidencies, Republicans controlled both houses of Congress (1921 to 1933). Republicans had no one else to blame for the Great Depression bank failures, collapse of the stock markets, 25% unemployment, and fearful retreat of consumers. The great drought of the 1930s made conditions even worse farm foreclosures, decreased trade, disappearance of agricultural jobs, and growth of a poverty class. When I was a kid, living up north, I always wondered how, on Feb. 2, some silly little animal in Pennsylvania could predict the weather. It was Groundhog Day, and supposedly if the groundhog saw his shadow and scurried back into his hole, there would be six more weeks of winter. If he didnt see his shadow, there would be an early spring. The biggest celebration is in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. In fact, a cult movie starring Bill Murray was made in 1993 featuring this festival and, indeed, a festival has built up around this holiday. The people in Pennsylvania take this quite seriously. So imagine their chagrin when the prosecuting attorney (similar to our state attorney and big cities district attorneys) of Butler County, Ohio, issued an indictment against Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog, for lying about winter. It seems that Phil said there would be an early spring, and last week and this week mid-Ohio, as well as Pennsylvania, was buried under several inches of snow. The tongue-in-cheek indictment from Ohio went even further it sought the death penalty against Phil. This, of course, raised the ire of the folks in Pennsylvania. They have sent a letter to Butler County, Ohio, with a cease and desist order, claiming that the prosecutor in Ohio had no jurisdiction over any event that happened in Pennsylvania. And you thought you had problems? Whats next extradition? Poor Phil. He was awakened from his winter hibernation by some guy in a funny hat and crazy outfit, pulled out of his cozy hole into the frozen tundra of Pennsylvania, given a quick look at the ground to see if his shadow was there, and then put back for the rest of his slumber. And what does he find upon his awakening? Only that a contract has been put out on him by the people of Ohio. While, of course, this is just a fun event, it does bring into focus the problems faced by weather forecasters. Just 11 days ago the local TV forecasters were telling us to get ready for a dry spell, with no rain for at least 12 days. Since then, weve had two fronts come through, the latest over the weekend, some with violent weather attached. The weather patterns have been a little strange, and as of this writing Monday our temperatures are dipping into jacket weather again. So while you consider the plight of weather forecasters, consider what Phil in Pennsylvania is going through. While we may blame the local forecasters for messing up our weekends, at least we dont put contracts out on them. But poor Phil hell have to look over his shoulder until the weather warms up.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

In case you wondered about the disconnect between the major television networks and the American public, there was an incident last week that should set you straight. CBS has a show called The Amazing Race, which is not high on our must see list. About a week ago, the episode of the show was set in Hanoi, North Vietnam. Among the scenes was a downed American jet from years ago. The racers also had to learn a song that the children of Hanoi sang to them, and some of the lyrics included Vietnam Communist Party is glorious. The light is guiding us to victory. Needless to say, many Americans, especially Vietnam veterans, were infuriated. There were demands to CBS for an apology, with social media playing a big part in the effort. The complaints included some from Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain, who was once a prisoner of war in Vietnam. Finally, on Sunday, one week after the Hanoi episode ran, a CBS official apologized at the beginning of the new segment. Many called it too little, too late. Some said they find it hard to believe that no one at CBS apparently thought this episode would be offensive. Actually, knowing the insensitive makeup of the networks, were not that surprised. Networks will do almost anything for ratings, and if it happens that they offend somebody, so what. The pressure on the network was so bad that it obviously had to apologize, but that doesnt absolve the executives from allowing this sort of thing on the air. Were sure that many Vietnam veterans, including those from this area, were among those offended. And we hope that the networks learn a lesson from this. Past wars and their effects still linger in the minds of people. An extra effort should be made not to disturb them.

Maryann Rohde Ocala GUEST COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN Americans have forgotten about the Iraq war, which began 10 years ago this week, and the Afghan war, the longest in American history, but the U.S. government is still throwing its weight around in both countries. The Iraq war, the pretext for which was nonexistent weapons of mass destruction, officially ended in 2011 with the withdrawal of virtually all of Americas combat troops. But the havoc wreaked by the U.S. invasion and regime change goes on. Over a hundred thousand Iraqis were killed in the war itself, but many more died in the aftermath from sectarian violence and the obliterated infrastructure. (Iraq had never recovered from the destruction inflicted by the U.S. government in the 1991 Gulf War and in the decade of sanctions related to it.) Millions fled their homes. The U.S. occupation unleashed bitter sectarian violence, complete with U.S.-trained death squads, leading the numerically dominant Shiite Muslims (who are friendly to Iran) to cleanse the Sunnis from Baghdad. A Sunni insurgency against the occupation inflicted heavy casualties until American money managed to have the guns turned on the al-Qaeda affiliate, which was not in Iraq before the U.S. The disasters that U.S. intervention created PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE9

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 32~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com invasion. On the American side, the deaths approached 4,500, with tens of thousands shattered in body and spirit. For the U.S. taxpayer, the price is over a trillion dollars, with billions lost to sheer corruption in the so-called rebuilding. The enormity of the crime committed by the Bush administration, with the complicity of cheerleading politicians (Republican and Democrat), journalists, and foreign-policy experts cannot be adequately calculated and the consequences are not all in. The country is now ruled by a corrupt, authoritarian, and brutal government. The infrastructure is a mess, with water, sanitation, and electricity unreliable. Most significant, the violence continues. Car bombings are common, and the al-Qaeda affiliate is active again so active that the CIA is ramping up support to elite Iraqi antiterrorism units, the Wall Street Journal reports. (And you thought the American war was over!) The irony is that these al-Qaeda fighters have been on the American side in the efforts to overthrow Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi and Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. If the Iraqi catastrophe isnt enough to destroy ones confidence in big government, what would it take? Meanwhile, in Afghanistans capital, Kabul, 300 residents of Wardak province recently held a demonstration demanding that the U.S. government remove its special-operations forces from the province because of the violence they are believed to be supporting. Last month Afghanistans president, Hamid Karzai, gave the Americans until March 10 to leave the province, but so far they have not left and Karzai is willing to compromise. The order came after complaints about raids by U.S.trained Afghan squads that led to the disappearance of Wardak residents. RICHMANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Nine men disappeared after one such nighttime raid. Murder and torture have also been alleged. The New York Times reports that the influential Ulema Council issued a threatening statement, which said, If the Americans once again do not honor their commitments and keep on disobeying, then this will be considered as an occupation, and they may expect to see a reaction to their action. The Times added that the statement referred to American forces in Afghanistan as infidels, echoing language used by the Taliban. The U.S. command denies the allegations, and an investigation is underway. It should be noted, however, that the U.S. military trained and supported similarly brutal militias (death squads) in Iraq, just as it did in Latin America in the 1980s. Whatever the investigation reveals, the controversy demonstrates the perils of invasion and occupation. People resent foreign forces on their soil, and the Afghans are no exception. They have driven out foreigners many times in the past, most recently the powerful Soviet Union. U.S. officials say the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were key to national security after 9/11. Even Barack Obama, who built a presidential campaign on opposing the Iraq war, claims it did much good after all. Nonsense. The 9/11 attacks were criminal acts intended as reprisals for Americansponsored oppression in the Middle East. The U.S. response has not made America safer it has created new enemies. What did you expect of the corrupt, power-hungry incompetents who call themselves American public servants? Next on the agenda: Iran.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) in Fairfax, Va. GUEST COMMENTARY BY GLENN MOLLETTE I am happy for anyone to come to the United States. We are truly a great country. Ive been further convinced of this by visiting other countries. There are some wonderful places but I always feel better when I am on American soil. Our country has issues but nothing like those faced by most other countries. I can understand why people want to come here. Many of them are desperate to get into our country. All are hoping for a better life. I havent traveled out of the country very much but I have been to a few places. Whenever I travel abroad I make sure that I have my passport and any necessary visa that the country requires. I wouldnt dream of trying to go any other way. I am amazed at the millions of people who risk it all to enter America illegally with little to no financial means to survive when they get here. I am in favor of helping people but they should come here legally. Entering the country without the proper documents is breaking the law. People who hire those who are here illegally are encouraging their illegal presence in our country. I can appreciate immigration reform. I dont believe the process should take Immigrants need to arrive legally PLEASESEEIMMIGRANTS, PAGE10 E The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: What does the budget sequester that recently took hold mean for the environment? Jane Burgos, Los Angeles, CA The sequester that went into effect March 1 is a budget measure that cuts federal spending across the board to the tune of $85 billion, meaning every federal agency is affected and must reduce discretionary spending. Indeed, the cuts are already having a negative impact on everything from air quality monitoring to extreme weather response capability to staffing at national parks. Some of the harshest cuts are starting to kick in at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). On the chopping block there are some critical air monitoring sites that check for dangerous pollutants like ozone and particulate matter, as well as funding the agency has traditionally given states to monitor their own air quality. The agency is also reducing the number of staffers tasked with monitoring compliance with environmental laws, and will do around 1,000 fewer inspections accordingly in 2013. Meanwhile, sequester-based cuts to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) mean reduced response efforts following weather disasters, which are on the rise due to climate change. Likewise, cuts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration mean less funding for maintenance and operations of some weather-monitoring systems, including the national radar network used for tornado warnings, and a delay in launching two new satellites designed to help track severe weather events like hurricanes. Also, sequester-based cuts to funding for the repair or replacement of decaying water and wastewater infrastructure are putting local drinking water at risk in communities from coast to coast. One way well feel the pain this summer is via staff cuts and closures at national parks and historic sites. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says the sequester is responsible for an indefinite delay in reopening the Statue of Liberty after Hurricane Sandy (though as of this writing Liberty Island will re-open July 4 while Ellis Island will remain closed) and for undermining his ability to fight fires and clean up after storms. The sequester also means less natural resource management. Fewer funds for fishery stock assessments means Alaskan fisheries may remain closed for longer than needed given lack of data on fish runs. And sequester cuts reduce efforts to combat illegal overfishing. Meanwhile, the Department of Agriculture will treat 200,000 fewer acres this summer for hazardous fuel, meaning a higher risk of wildfires. On the energy front, outgoing Energy Secretary Steven Chu reports that the sequester jeopardizes ongoing research into increasing automobile fuel efficiency and reducing gasoline consumption, in turn slowing down the countrys quest for energy independence. Also, less funding means less oversight of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for natural gas and research into the environmental impacts of the practice. Green group leaders are especially annoyed that under the sequester oil companies get to keep billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies while drastic budget cuts limit the EPAs ability to monitor, limit and clean up the pollution they cause. Perhaps the one silver lining is a slowdown in the issuance of new off-shore oil and gas development permits given cuts at the Department of Energy.

years. On the other hand we should not hand out citizenship like penny candy on Halloween. Its worth something to be an American. My wifes grandfather was once held as a prisoner of war during World War II in the Philippines. He paid a heavy price for America. My brother fought in Vietnam and a neighbor friend was killed in Vietnam. Another friend was left for dead after being thrust with a bayonet in Korea. He survived that experience to be shot on two different occasions in Vietnam. Many Americans have sacrificed their lives for America. Families today live with the sacrifice of giving up their loved ones for America. I think about how hard Americans have worked to make and keep this country free. Think of not only the wars but also the sacrifices of every generation that has battled to keep America free, strong, and the kind of place desired by nationalities around the world. American freedom has not come easy and there will be nothing easy about preserving who we are and what we have. To just pass out citizenship to anybody and everybody who crosses our border legally or illegally without going through a fair and just process is a slap in the face of every soldier who has died for this country. Its a slap in the face of every American who has spent his life filling out tax reforms, paying untold fortunes of taxes to the government and abiding by the law. I am thrilled that people want to come to America. Just please abide by the law and make our country better. America is here for you. Come one and come all. Salute our flag, carry your fair share of taxes, serve in our military and help us keep this country free and strong.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com THE STRIKER -By Clive Cussler An unlikely undercover investigator posing as a miner in 1902 West Virginia is tall, handsome, and very blonde Isaac Bell on the case for the Van Dorn Detective Agency. Cusslers daring protagonist begins by attempting to stop a runaway train of tipple cars and is almost killed: The swaying coal car Isaac Bell clung to scraped the sides of the tunnel. Bell pressed himself tight against the cold steel to minimize the distance his body would travel at the moment of impact. Suddenly the train jumped the tracks. Metal shrieked as it battered the side of the tunnel and threatened to buck him off like a maddened bronco. Instead, it saved the young detectives life. Although fingers point at the striking miners in the area as the cause of the accident, Bell suspects a villainous provocateur determined to start a war to wipe out striking miners and their suffering families. Whereas the unions were organizing to bring better pay and better conditions to coal miners, the mine owners wanted to control the countrys entire supply of coal by breaking the unions once and for all. Bells problem is staying undercover while trying to help these desperate miners. Most of the riveting action in this book occurs during the first half. Thereafter, things get talky as Bell and Van Dorn detectives plot how to trap the provocateur. True Cussler fans tell me I made a mistake to start with The Striker even though its a prequel. A better choice, they say, is The Chase or The Wrecker. And even some of these fans express disappointment in this latest addition to the Isaac Bell saga and with good reason. Although the potential was there for an exciting novel, much of it is bloated with needless detail. Even so, theres something here for history buffs: inhumane, hazardous working conditions; ruthless coal and steel tycoons, and bloody warfare between labor and management. Then, off camera, President Teddy Roosevelt stepping in to support the miners.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Iam what many people refer to as a purist. Many do not understand or know what a purist is so let me explain. No, a purist is not a Puritan, although I have nothing against Puritans and lean heavily in their direction. After all, I think it is better to be radical in the right direction than radical in the wrong direction as many people are today. I think the Puritans are getting a bad rap today. A purist, however, is someone who likes things just the way they are. No additives. No upgrades. No unnecessary changes. If my light bulb goes out, I want to change. That is the limit for change except maybe some of it that jingles in my pocket. Have you ever noticed that once you are comfortable with a computer program and really like it, someone will upgrade it until it is a completely different program with no relationship to the one you love? I hate that. When you got something that works, do not try to fix it. That is one of the basic rules of life. It is a rule I have been trying to explain to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage for years. I keep telling her I am not broken and therefore I do not need fixing. It has become the mission of her life to upgrade me. Can you imagine that? I love me the way I are. Some people are more like soup than anything else. Anything and everything goes into the pot. Not me. I like to savor something in its own environment. So, I am a purist in many regards, which can best be seen from my point of view in holidays. I like holidays but I do not like all of the upgrading and embellishments attached to every holiday you can think of except perhaps April 1. We know who celebrates that holiday. I would like to enjoy a holiday sometime without all of the extras. At Christmas time I want to celebrate the purpose of Christmas, I have no idea what a Santa Claus with reindeer, and Frosty the Snowman have to do with Christmas. This is rather confusing to me. What are we celebrating at Christmas? If you follow the commercials, you have no idea what holiday is being celebrated. For Easter, I would like to strip away all of the trappings, all of the hype and just celebrate it for what it is. What do the Easter bunny and the Easter egg have to do with Easter? I would be open to having a holiday for the Easter bunny, another holiday for the Easter egg and if you want to get technical, a holiday for Santa Claus, one for Rudolph the red nose reindeer and a separate one for Frosty the Snowman. When you put it all together, it just is rather confusing to me. I know who is in charge of these holidays. A holiday is not to celebrate but rather a holiday is to make money. Some people, and I will not mention any names, has never seen a holiday they did not want to make a buck. Maybe every holiday should be called Buck Day, where we celebrate and honor the almighty dollar. One more holiday I would suggest is one with no commercials and no selling whatsoever. A holiday where you would be fined dearly if you bought anything. A holiday from buying would suit me just fine. I know my critics will say that unless somebody buys something nobody makes anything. I have no problem with that. Wouldnt it be nice to have a holiday where that kind of thing was not front and center? The value of the Easter bunny is how much money it can make for the person sponsoring the holiday. I have seen a very interesting thing and I just cannot quite explain it. Just before the Easter holiday and leading up to it, all the Easter candy is at a premium price. Then, after Easter, this same Easter candy is at a hefty discount in the stores. What has changed? Could it be that the older something gets the less it is worth? Of course, I am beginning to feel that way myself, as I get older. (Thanks, Uncle Sam.) As a purist, I would like to celebrate a holiday for once without all of the rigmarole and shenanigans. A holiday where nobody will pester me. A holiday where I can shut out the world and enjoy the comforts of home and family. If I have not offended anybody up to now, let me take this a step further. It would be nice to have a holiday when all media would shut down. No television. No radio. No telephone or cell phone. No Internet. I know I am a radical, but I think it would be nice some time just to close out the world and remember the things that have value. Even Jesus understood this in his time. And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat (Mark 6:31 KJV). Therefore, I would like all of these things to hop along let me enjoy the things that really have value to me before I simply come apart.Rev. James L.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVER TISING Sunday is Easter, an important day for Christians as they commemorate the resurrection of their savior, Jesus Christ, after his crucifixion on Good Friday. Its also a fun day for children as they go on Easter egg hunts and get baskets from the Easter bunny. The bunnies had been jumping up and down waiting their turn on Pun Alley.Bunny hopA man was driving along the highway, when he saw the Easter Bunny hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved, but unfortunately his car hit the rabbit and the bunnys basket of eggs went flying all over the place. The driver pulled over to the side of the road, and got out to see what had become of the Bunny carrying the basket. Much to his dismay, the colorful Bunny was dead. A woman saw the accident and pulled over. She saw the dead bunny and went to her car to get a spray can. She walked over to the limp dead Bunny and sprayed the entire contents of the can onto the little furry animal. Miraculously the Easter Bunny came to back life, jumped up, picked up the spilled eggs, waved its paw at the two people, and hopped on down the road. Fifty yards away the Easter Bunny stopped, turned around, waved and hopped on down the road another 50 yards, turned, waved, hopped another 50 yards and waved again. The man was astonished. He said to the woman, What was it that you sprayed on the Easter Bunny? The woman, reading the cans label said, Hair spray. Restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave.The adopted rabbitWhen an infant rabbit was orphaned a family of squirrels took it in and raised it as if it were one of their own. This adoption led to some peculiar rabbit behaviors, including a tendency for it to avoid jumping but rather to run around like its stepsiblings. As the rabbit got older, however, it soon faced an identity crisis. It went to its stepparents to discuss how it felt different from its stepsiblings, was unsure of its place in the universe, and was generally forlorn. Their response was, Dont scurry; be hoppy.Bunny TalesHelicopters providing flights between airports in the same city usually carry a rabbit on board because they take short hops. You can send a letter to the Easter Bunny by hare mail. I suggested an egg fight on Easter. I got shelled. When the bunny turned 18 years old he joined the Hare Force. When Easter Bunny helpers make baskets they get two points, just like anyone else. A real cool rabbit is a hip hopper.Out on a limbTwo mountaineers were climbing when their rope broke, leaving them dangling by some tree roots above a 2,000 foot fall. One said, Oh if only I had a little bunny here to blow in my face. The other climber replied, How would that help? You never heard of someone saved by a hares breath?Things I learned from the Easter BunnyDont put all your eggs in one basket. Walk softly and carry a big carrot. Everyone needs a friend who is all ears. Theres no such thing as too much candy. All work and no play can make you a basket case.Bank on itI was standing in line at the bank when there was a commotion at the counter. A woman was distressed, exclaiming, Where will I put my money? I have all my money and my mortgage here! What will happen to my mortgage? It turned out that she had misunderstood a small sign on the counter. The sign read: WE WILL BE CLOSED FOR GOOD FRIDAY.SecretAfter attending church, John met the preacher at the door. Greeting people as he always does, he grabbed John by the hand and pulled him aside. The pastor said, You need to join the Army of the Lord! John said, Im already in the Army of the Lord, Pastor. Pastor questioned, How come I dont see you except at Christmas and Easter? John whispered back, Im in the secret service.If youre not even in the Secret Service, give it a try and then move up to being in the Army of the Lord. Oak Run residents Dick and his wife Jane wish you a joyful Easter.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Asold out crowd of revelers packed the clubhouse at Cherrywood for the first annual Veterans Club Italian spaghetti dinner fundraiser. Some of the guests were dressed in traditional Italian attire while others mimicked the characters from Godfather. Bill and Ida Mahar sold raffle tickets; he made them an offer they couldnt refuse. Rich Hurley sold 50/50 tickets; making the collections in true Italian style of course. Most of the people at the full; brightly decorated tables brought Chianti or other libations so the mood was light and fun. Eve Houghtaling convinced her husband Jim to make 25 pounds of meatballs while she and others made 18 pounds of spaghetti noodles and over 12 gallons of sauce. Jim did a terrific job as the meatballs were spiced just right and had perfect consistency; the noodles tender; and the meat sauce was perfect. The food was lovingly prepared during the day Saturday so it was fresh; hot and delicious that evening. Nearly a score of volunteers served the dinner to the individual tables allowing everyone to enjoy their meal while it was still steaming from the kitchen. Salads and rolls accompanied the main course followed by an out-ofthis-world cake especially baked for the occasion by Frank Juarbe and David Rondinelli. Needless to say, no one left hungry. During the dinner Bob Mace traveled from table to table playing songs from old Italy enhancing the mood and the meal. People made requests; sang along and thoroughly enjoyed the personal touch he gave with his accordion music. After the meal, when the tables were cleared, Bob displayed his versatility and wide range of talent by moving to the keyboard. Starting with a medley of the Armed Forces, everyone saluted the various branches that our members have served in. A wide variety of music followed and everyone enjoyed the songs and tempos that he performed as they danced across the floor. Toward the end of the evening the winners were drawn for the various door prizes and the gift basket. The Italian basket of goodies was won by Marilyn Burke of Palm Cay who was not in attendance but still showed her support by buying tickets. Many of the guests went home with something special and all of the guests went home with special memories of a wonderful evening. The Veterans Club would like to thank first and foremost, our residents and friends for their strong and never ending support. In addition, a special thanks to our volunteers headed up by Eve and Jim Houghtaling. They were, Ralph and Norma Alexander; Gerald and Christl Giovanniello; Al Buechter; Sandee Spencer; Ruth and Rich Hurley; Dolly and Rich Juber; Sandra and Bill Brotherhood; Dick Francis; Ida and Bill Mahar; and Marti Duesel. As with nearly all of our events, this one brought in revenue for the Veterans Club but more importantly was a testament to the high regard that this community has for those who served and are still serving their country; county and community. We thank each and every one of you who took part. Veterans Club spaghetti dinner a total success Cherrywood John Everlove Veterans spaghetti dinner winners, Bill Mahar, Eve Houghtaling, Rich Hurley, Theresa Torrusio, Gene Wachsmuth, Marti Duesel, Jay OHern and Peggy Konar.

Floridas red light safety camera program is a proven law-enforcement tool that reduces dangerous T-bone crashes and changes the behavior of those drivers who choose to run red lights says the Forida League of Cities, which supports efforts to reform the current programs and believes CS/SB 1342, in its current form, strikes the right balance. CS/SB 1342, sponsored by Sen. Joseph Abruzzo, improves the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act through careful refinements to the programs procedures while keeping its enforcement power intact. Among its improvements to the Wandall Act, CS/SB 1342 clarifies the transfer of liability process to assist drivers, vehicle owners and rental car customers; describes specific instances when a rightturn violation should be issued by creating a standard that includes a clear danger to individuals or other vehicles in the intersection; and codifies the criteria for yellow light timing to those set by the National Institute of Transportation Engineers. These changes and others answer the challenges raised against red light safety cameras with practical and common-sense solutions that lawmakers and the public should support.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com husband for an old-maid sister Lizzi Finney, played by Paula Adwell. Her sisters, Birdi, Milli, Prissi and Tilli, played by Betty Kraus, Mary Buckoski, Dotty Bouchet and Carol Mock, are anxious for their sister to marry, as they must wait for her, as eldest, to marry before they can. Mama and Papa Finney, played by Fran Szutar and Bob West, are beside themselves trying to get Lizzi a beau, and Grandmama, played by Shirley Martin, does her best and tries to get Mr. Holland the Postman, played by Bob Fink, involved. But its Fitz, played by Jim Adwell, who finally wins Lizzis betrothal. The cast is rounded out with the Gentlemen, Bobby, Billy, Jasper and Tommy, played by Jim Pohlers, George Taragna, Frank Szutar and Ed Gorsky, the friends Holli, Molli and Polli Biddington, played by Joan Ritter, Doris Gorsky and Joy Asashon, the Trolley Conductor, played by Paul Scerri, and Dave Ritter and Buck Buckoski as the Trolley Brakemen. Along with the cast, there were many support staff which made this production possible. The trolley designer/builder was Ed Gorsky; prompters were Mary Jane West and Ethel Taragna; lighting by Joan Dopler; sound by Art Dopler; seamstress was Joy Asashon; piano by Ardith Thomas; video by Don Kraus; tickets by Ken Talbert; ticket sales headed by Joan Dopler; setup by Larry Keables and committee; and refreshments by Rachel Glenn and Nancy Rife. Little Theatre started performing in December of 1996, with many of the same loyal performers since the beginning, said Donna Taylor. Thanks to everyone for their many hours of rehearsal, their many talents, and their dedication to Marion Landing. And thank you, Donna. The community always looks forward to Little Theatres productions and appreciates all their hard work.Land bridge walk and horse farm visitTwelve Marion Landing residents got together on Friday, Mar. 15, for a walk to the Land Bridge. The walk was organized by Carolyn Salzlein and she submitted the following: [We] started out on a chilly March morning for a walk to the Land Bridge. The weather got warmer as we made our way through the woods under the large Oaks. At the Land Bridge, we waved to the passing car, and they answered with a beep of their horns. After the walk we went to a local horse farm and saw many of the new babies enjoying the warmth of the sun with their moms. What a joy to see them frolicking around and getting used to their long legs. Some were less than a week old!Paper tole classJoan DeWitt is bringing her expertise to the Lifestyle Center and instructing residents in the art of paper tole. Paper tole is the art of handcrafting three-dimensional pictures from flat prints. By using an Exacto knife to skillfully cut shapes, multiple pieces of paper are layered onto an image until a three-dimensional version of the image emerges. Stemming from decoupage, this paper craft originated sometime in the 18th century and involved cutting pieces of paper and shellacking them onto wooden furniture and other objects. Paper tole has reemerged over the years in several different forms; and while framed prints are most popular, people often employ the same techniques used in making paper tole when creating handmade greeting cards and other paper crafts. Joan has been doing paper tole for over 15 years and has handcrafted beautiful framed prints which are often on display in our Lifestyle Center and at our Craft Fairs. We look forward to seeing the finished projects this group has created. See photo Page 22.

Floridas red light safety camera program is a proven law-enforcement tool that reduces dangerous T-bone crashes and changes the behavior of those drivers who choose to run red lights says the Forida League of Cities, which supports efforts to reform the current programs and believes CS/SB 1342, in its current form, strikes the right balance. CS/SB 1342, sponsored by Sen. Joseph Abruzzo, improves the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act through careful refinements to the programs procedures while keeping its enforcement power intact. Among its improvements to the Wandall Act, CS/SB 1342 clarifies the transfer of liability process to assist drivers, vehicle owners and rental car customers; describes specific instances when a rightturn violation should be issued by creating a standard that includes a clear danger to individuals or other vehicles in the intersection; and codifies the criteria for yellow light timing to those set by the National Institute of Transportation Engineers. These changes and others answer the challenges raised against red light safety cameras with practical and common-sense solutions that lawmakers and the public should support.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Asold out crowd of revelers packed the clubhouse at Cherrywood for the first annual Veterans Club Italian spaghetti dinner fundraiser. Some of the guests were dressed in traditional Italian attire while others mimicked the characters from Godfather. Bill and Ida Mahar sold raffle tickets; he made them an offer they couldnt refuse. Rich Hurley sold 50/50 tickets; making the collections in true Italian style of course. Most of the people at the full; brightly decorated tables brought Chianti or other libations so the mood was light and fun. Eve Houghtaling convinced her husband Jim to make 25 pounds of meatballs while she and others made 18 pounds of spaghetti noodles and over 12 gallons of sauce. Jim did a terrific job as the meatballs were spiced just right and had perfect consistency; the noodles tender; and the meat sauce was perfect. The food was lovingly prepared during the day Saturday so it was fresh; hot and delicious that evening. Nearly a score of volunteers served the dinner to the individual tables allowing everyone to enjoy their meal while it was still steaming from the kitchen. Salads and rolls accompanied the main course followed by an out-ofthis-world cake especially baked for the occasion by Frank Juarbe and David Rondinelli. Needless to say, no one left hungry. During the dinner Bob Mace traveled from table to table playing songs from old Italy enhancing the mood and the meal. People made requests; sang along and thoroughly enjoyed the personal touch he gave with his accordion music. After the meal, when the tables were cleared, Bob displayed his versatility and wide range of talent by moving to the keyboard. Starting with a medley of the Armed Forces, everyone saluted the various branches that our members have served in. A wide variety of music followed and everyone enjoyed the songs and tempos that he performed as they danced across the floor. Toward the end of the evening the winners were drawn for the various door prizes and the gift basket. The Italian basket of goodies was won by Marilyn Burke of Palm Cay who was not in attendance but still showed her support by buying tickets. Many of the guests went home with something special and all of the guests went home with special memories of a wonderful evening. The Veterans Club would like to thank first and foremost, our residents and friends for their strong and never ending support. In addition, a special thanks to our volunteers headed up by Eve and Jim Houghtaling. They were, Ralph and Norma Alexander; Gerald and Christl Giovanniello; Al Buechter; Sandee Spencer; Ruth and Rich Hurley; Dolly and Rich Juber; Sandra and Bill Brotherhood; Dick Francis; Ida and Bill Mahar; and Marti Duesel. As with nearly all of our events, this one brought in revenue for the Veterans Club but more importantly was a testament to the high regard that this community has for those who served and are still serving their country; county and community. We thank each and every one of you who took part. Veterans Club spaghetti dinner a total success Cherrywood John Everlove Veterans spaghetti dinner winners, Bill Mahar, Eve Houghtaling, Rich Hurley, Theresa Torrusio, Gene Wachsmuth, Marti Duesel, Jay OHern and Peggy Konar.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVER TISING Sunday is Easter, an important day for Christians as they commemorate the resurrection of their savior, Jesus Christ, after his crucifixion on Good Friday. Its also a fun day for children as they go on Easter egg hunts and get baskets from the Easter bunny. The bunnies had been jumping up and down waiting their turn on Pun Alley.Bunny hopA man was driving along the highway, when he saw the Easter Bunny hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved, but unfortunately his car hit the rabbit and the bunnys basket of eggs went flying all over the place. The driver pulled over to the side of the road, and got out to see what had become of the Bunny carrying the basket. Much to his dismay, the colorful Bunny was dead. A woman saw the accident and pulled over. She saw the dead bunny and went to her car to get a spray can. She walked over to the limp dead Bunny and sprayed the entire contents of the can onto the little furry animal. Miraculously the Easter Bunny came to back life, jumped up, picked up the spilled eggs, waved its paw at the two people, and hopped on down the road. Fifty yards away the Easter Bunny stopped, turned around, waved and hopped on down the road another 50 yards, turned, waved, hopped another 50 yards and waved again. The man was astonished. He said to the woman, What was it that you sprayed on the Easter Bunny? The woman, reading the cans label said, Hair spray. Restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave.The adopted rabbitWhen an infant rabbit was orphaned a family of squirrels took it in and raised it as if it were one of their own. This adoption led to some peculiar rabbit behaviors, including a tendency for it to avoid jumping but rather to run around like its stepsiblings. As the rabbit got older, however, it soon faced an identity crisis. It went to its stepparents to discuss how it felt different from its stepsiblings, was unsure of its place in the universe, and was generally forlorn. Their response was, Dont scurry; be hoppy.Bunny TalesHelicopters providing flights between airports in the same city usually carry a rabbit on board because they take short hops. You can send a letter to the Easter Bunny by hare mail. I suggested an egg fight on Easter. I got shelled. When the bunny turned 18 years old he joined the Hare Force. When Easter Bunny helpers make baskets they get two points, just like anyone else. A real cool rabbit is a hip hopper.Out on a limbTwo mountaineers were climbing when their rope broke, leaving them dangling by some tree roots above a 2,000 foot fall. One said, Oh if only I had a little bunny here to blow in my face. The other climber replied, How would that help? You never heard of someone saved by a hares breath?Things I learned from the Easter BunnyDont put all your eggs in one basket. Walk softly and carry a big carrot. Everyone needs a friend who is all ears. Theres no such thing as too much candy. All work and no play can make you a basket case.Bank on itI was standing in line at the bank when there was a commotion at the counter. A woman was distressed, exclaiming, Where will I put my money? I have all my money and my mortgage here! What will happen to my mortgage? It turned out that she had misunderstood a small sign on the counter. The sign read: WE WILL BE CLOSED FOR GOOD FRIDAY.SecretAfter attending church, John met the preacher at the door. Greeting people as he always does, he grabbed John by the hand and pulled him aside. The pastor said, You need to join the Army of the Lord! John said, Im already in the Army of the Lord, Pastor. Pastor questioned, How come I dont see you except at Christmas and Easter? John whispered back, Im in the secret service.If youre not even in the Secret Service, give it a try and then move up to being in the Army of the Lord. Oak Run residents Dick and his wife Jane wish you a joyful Easter.

Many do not understand or know what a purist is so let me explain. No, a purist is not a Puritan, although I have nothing against Puritans and lean heavily in their direction. After all, I think it is better to be radical in the right direction than radical in the wrong direction as many people are today. I think the Puritans are getting a bad rap today. A purist, however, is someone who likes things just the way they are. No additives. No upgrades. No unnecessary changes. If my light bulb goes out, I want to change. That is the limit for change except maybe some of it that jingles in my pocket. Have you ever noticed that once you are comfortable with a computer program and really like it, someone will upgrade it until it is a completely different program with no relationship to the one you love? I hate that. When you got something that works, do not try to fix it. That is one of the basic rules of life. It is a rule I have been trying to explain to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage for years. I keep telling her I am not broken and therefore I do not need fixing. It has become the mission of her life to upgrade me. Can you imagine that? I love me the way I are. Some people are more like soup than anything else. Anything and everything goes into the pot. Not me. I like to savor something in its own environment. So, I am a purist in many regards, which can best be seen from my point of view in holidays. I like holidays but I do not like all of the upgrading and embellishments attached to every holiday you can think of except perhaps April 1. We know who celebrates that holiday. I would like to enjoy a holiday sometime without all of the extras. At Christmas time I want to celebrate the purpose of Christmas, I have no idea what a Santa Claus with reindeer, and Frosty the Snowman have to do with Christmas. This is rather confusing to me. What are we celebrating at Christmas? If you follow the commercials, you have no idea what holiday is being celebrated. For Easter, I would like to strip away all of the trappings, all of the hype and just celebrate it for what it is. What do the Easter bunny and the Easter egg have to do with Easter? I would be open to having a holiday for the Easter bunny, another holiday for the Easter egg and if you want to get technical, a holiday for Santa Claus, one for Rudolph the red nose reindeer and a separate one for Frosty the Snowman. When you put it all together, it just is rather confusing to me. I know who is in charge of these holidays. A holiday is not to celebrate but rather a holiday is to make money. Some people, and I will not mention any names, has never seen a holiday they did not want to make a buck. Maybe every holiday should be called Buck Day, where we celebrate and honor the almighty dollar. One more holiday I would suggest is one with no commercials and no selling whatsoever. A holiday where you would be fined dearly if you bought anything. A holiday from buying would suit me just fine. I know my critics will say that unless somebody buys something nobody makes anything. I have no problem with that. Wouldnt it be nice to have a holiday where that kind of thing was not front and center? The value of the Easter bunny is how much money it can make for the person sponsoring the holiday. I have seen a very interesting thing and I just cannot quite explain it. Just before the Easter holiday and leading up to it, all the Easter candy is at a premium price. Then, after Easter, this same Easter candy is at a hefty discount in the stores. What has changed? Could it be that the older something gets the less it is worth? Of course, I am beginning to feel that way myself, as I get older. (Thanks, Uncle Sam.) As a purist, I would like to celebrate a holiday for once without all of the rigmarole and shenanigans. A holiday where nobody will pester me. A holiday where I can shut out the world and enjoy the comforts of home and family. If I have not offended anybody up to now, let me take this a step further. It would be nice to have a holiday when all media would shut down. No television. No radio. No telephone or cell phone. No Internet. I know I am a radical, but I think it would be nice some time just to close out the world and remember the things that have value. Even Jesus understood this in his time. And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat (Mark 6:31 KJV). Therefore, I would like all of these things to hop along let me enjoy the things that really have value to me before I simply come apart.Rev. James L.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com THE STRIKER -By Clive Cussler An unlikely undercover investigator posing as a miner in 1902 West Virginia is tall, handsome, and very blonde Isaac Bell on the case for the Van Dorn Detective Agency. Cusslers daring protagonist begins by attempting to stop a runaway train of tipple cars and is almost killed: The swaying coal car Isaac Bell clung to scraped the sides of the tunnel. Bell pressed himself tight against the cold steel to minimize the distance his body would travel at the moment of impact. Suddenly the train jumped the tracks. Metal shrieked as it battered the side of the tunnel and threatened to buck him off like a maddened bronco. Instead, it saved the young detectives life. Although fingers point at the striking miners in the area as the cause of the accident, Bell suspects a villainous provocateur determined to start a war to wipe out striking miners and their suffering families. Whereas the unions were organizing to bring better pay and better conditions to coal miners, the mine owners wanted to control the countrys entire supply of coal by breaking the unions once and for all. Bells problem is staying undercover while trying to help these desperate miners. Most of the riveting action in this book occurs during the first half. Thereafter, things get talky as Bell and Van Dorn detectives plot how to trap the provocateur. True Cussler fans tell me I made a mistake to start with The Striker even though its a prequel. A better choice, they say, is The Chase or The Wrecker. And even some of these fans express disappointment in this latest addition to the Isaac Bell saga and with good reason. Although the potential was there for an exciting novel, much of it is bloated with needless detail. Even so, theres something here for history buffs: inhumane, hazardous working conditions; ruthless coal and steel tycoons, and bloody warfare between labor and management. Then, off camera, President Teddy Roosevelt stepping in to support the miners.

years. On the other hand we should not hand out citizenship like penny candy on Halloween. Its worth something to be an American. My wifes grandfather was once held as a prisoner of war during World War II in the Philippines. He paid a heavy price for America. My brother fought in Vietnam and a neighbor friend was killed in Vietnam. Another friend was left for dead after being thrust with a bayonet in Korea. He survived that experience to be shot on two different occasions in Vietnam. Many Americans have sacrificed their lives for America. Families today live with the sacrifice of giving up their loved ones for America. I think about how hard Americans have worked to make and keep this country free. Think of not only the wars but also the sacrifices of every generation that has battled to keep America free, strong, and the kind of place desired by nationalities around the world. American freedom has not come easy and there will be nothing easy about preserving who we are and what we have. To just pass out citizenship to anybody and everybody who crosses our border legally or illegally without going through a fair and just process is a slap in the face of every soldier who has died for this country. Its a slap in the face of every American who has spent his life filling out tax reforms, paying untold fortunes of taxes to the government and abiding by the law. I am thrilled that people want to come to America. Just please abide by the law and make our country better. America is here for you. Come one and come all. Salute our flag, carry your fair share of taxes, serve in our military and help us keep this country free and strong.

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 32~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com invasion. On the American side, the deaths approached 4,500, with tens of thousands shattered in body and spirit. For the U.S. taxpayer, the price is over a trillion dollars, with billions lost to sheer corruption in the so-called rebuilding. The enormity of the crime committed by the Bush administration, with the complicity of cheerleading politicians (Republican and Democrat), journalists, and foreign-policy experts cannot be adequately calculated and the consequences are not all in. The country is now ruled by a corrupt, authoritarian, and brutal government. The infrastructure is a mess, with water, sanitation, and electricity unreliable. Most significant, the violence continues. Car bombings are common, and the al-Qaeda affiliate is active again so active that the CIA is ramping up support to elite Iraqi antiterrorism units, the Wall Street Journal reports. (And you thought the American war was over!) The irony is that these al-Qaeda fighters have been on the American side in the efforts to overthrow Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi and Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. If the Iraqi catastrophe isnt enough to destroy ones confidence in big government, what would it take? Meanwhile, in Afghanistans capital, Kabul, 300 residents of Wardak province recently held a demonstration demanding that the U.S. government remove its special-operations forces from the province because of the violence they are believed to be supporting. Last month Afghanistans president, Hamid Karzai, gave the Americans until March 10 to leave the province, but so far they have not left and Karzai is willing to compromise. The order came after complaints about raids by U.S.trained Afghan squads that led to the disappearance of Wardak residents. RICHMANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Nine men disappeared after one such nighttime raid. Murder and torture have also been alleged. The New York Times reports that the influential Ulema Council issued a threatening statement, which said, If the Americans once again do not honor their commitments and keep on disobeying, then this will be considered as an occupation, and they may expect to see a reaction to their action. The Times added that the statement referred to American forces in Afghanistan as infidels, echoing language used by the Taliban. The U.S. command denies the allegations, and an investigation is underway. It should be noted, however, that the U.S. military trained and supported similarly brutal militias (death squads) in Iraq, just as it did in Latin America in the 1980s. Whatever the investigation reveals, the controversy demonstrates the perils of invasion and occupation. People resent foreign forces on their soil, and the Afghans are no exception. They have driven out foreigners many times in the past, most recently the powerful Soviet Union. U.S. officials say the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were key to national security after 9/11. Even Barack Obama, who built a presidential campaign on opposing the Iraq war, claims it did much good after all. Nonsense. The 9/11 attacks were criminal acts intended as reprisals for Americansponsored oppression in the Middle East. The U.S. response has not made America safer it has created new enemies. What did you expect of the corrupt, power-hungry incompetents who call themselves American public servants? Next on the agenda: Iran.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) in Fairfax, Va. GUEST COMMENTARY BY GLENN MOLLETTE I am happy for anyone to come to the United States. We are truly a great country. Ive been further convinced of this by visiting other countries. There are some wonderful places but I always feel better when I am on American soil. Our country has issues but nothing like those faced by most other countries. I can understand why people want to come here. Many of them are desperate to get into our country. All are hoping for a better life. I havent traveled out of the country very much but I have been to a few places. Whenever I travel abroad I make sure that I have my passport and any necessary visa that the country requires. I wouldnt dream of trying to go any other way. I am amazed at the millions of people who risk it all to enter America illegally with little to no financial means to survive when they get here. I am in favor of helping people but they should come here legally. Entering the country without the proper documents is breaking the law. People who hire those who are here illegally are encouraging their illegal presence in our country. I can appreciate immigration reform. I dont believe the process should take Immigrants need to arrive legally PLEASESEEIMMIGRANTS, PAGE10 E The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: What does the budget sequester that recently took hold mean for the environment? Jane Burgos, Los Angeles, CA The sequester that went into effect March 1 is a budget measure that cuts federal spending across the board to the tune of $85 billion, meaning every federal agency is affected and must reduce discretionary spending. Indeed, the cuts are already having a negative impact on everything from air quality monitoring to extreme weather response capability to staffing at national parks. Some of the harshest cuts are starting to kick in at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). On the chopping block there are some critical air monitoring sites that check for dangerous pollutants like ozone and particulate matter, as well as funding the agency has traditionally given states to monitor their own air quality. The agency is also reducing the number of staffers tasked with monitoring compliance with environmental laws, and will do around 1,000 fewer inspections accordingly in 2013. Meanwhile, sequester-based cuts to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) mean reduced response efforts following weather disasters, which are on the rise due to climate change. Likewise, cuts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration mean less funding for maintenance and operations of some weather-monitoring systems, including the national radar network used for tornado warnings, and a delay in launching two new satellites designed to help track severe weather events like hurricanes. Also, sequester-based cuts to funding for the repair or replacement of decaying water and wastewater infrastructure are putting local drinking water at risk in communities from coast to coast. One way well feel the pain this summer is via staff cuts and closures at national parks and historic sites. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says the sequester is responsible for an indefinite delay in reopening the Statue of Liberty after Hurricane Sandy (though as of this writing Liberty Island will re-open July 4 while Ellis Island will remain closed) and for undermining his ability to fight fires and clean up after storms. The sequester also means less natural resource management. Fewer funds for fishery stock assessments means Alaskan fisheries may remain closed for longer than needed given lack of data on fish runs. And sequester cuts reduce efforts to combat illegal overfishing. Meanwhile, the Department of Agriculture will treat 200,000 fewer acres this summer for hazardous fuel, meaning a higher risk of wildfires. On the energy front, outgoing Energy Secretary Steven Chu reports that the sequester jeopardizes ongoing research into increasing automobile fuel efficiency and reducing gasoline consumption, in turn slowing down the countrys quest for energy independence. Also, less funding means less oversight of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for natural gas and research into the environmental impacts of the practice. Green group leaders are especially annoyed that under the sequester oil companies get to keep billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies while drastic budget cuts limit the EPAs ability to monitor, limit and clean up the pollution they cause. Perhaps the one silver lining is a slowdown in the issuance of new off-shore oil and gas development permits given cuts at the Department of Energy.

Then along came President Franklin Roosevelt elected four times. For most of the next 20 years Democrats controlled both houses of Congress. Republicans managed one brief takeover of both houses in 1947-49. President Harry Truman labeled it the donothing 80th Congress. The name has stuck ever since. President Roosevelts first New Deal (1933-34) was about ending alcohol prohibition, changing the money system, and creating economic recovery programs. The Works Progress Administration (WPA) was created to reduce 25 percent unemployment, an expensive but useful program which employed more then eight million people over ten years. Roosevelts second New Deal (1935-38) was a first step toward social democracy, but nobody used that term back then. Democrats leaned toward liberalism voting rights, equal rights, and government social services health care, food and shelter for the homeless. Senior citizens remember Mr. Roosevelt most favorably for initiating Social Security. Thirty years later, President Lyndon Johnson decided Social Security surpluses were a quiet source of revenue for funding the Vietnam War. Ever since, Congress has used Social Security taxes as a piggy bank to fund pet projects and other wars, issuing IOUs which cant be redeemed without borrowing real money. Additional major elements of a social democracy were in President Johnsons Great Society welfare legislation and social reforms. Mr. Johnson is remembered for a number of appreciated domestic programs Medicare, Medicaid, and federal funding of education. Republicans made two significant contributions toward social democracy: The Medicare Prescription Drug Act of 2003, which purchased a second term in the White House for George W. Bush and enriched pharmaceutical companies beyond their happiest dreams. And the Great Recession of 20062009, which elevated a half-term Democratic senator into two terms in the White House oval office. In time, President Obamas Health Care for America Plan will likely merge existing programs into a single national health administration perhaps a final step toward converting a 225 year old constitutional republic into an American social democracy. What is a social democracy? Its not socialism. Its social reform of a capitalist economy and a gradual transition of government to direct democracy. But thats an explanation for another time.

BORN THIS WEEK: Your natural gift for honest leadership earns you the respect and admiration of others. When asked if he had any political affiliation, humorist Will Rogers used to quip: I am not a member of any organized party. Im a Democrat. If he were alive today, Rogers could claim membership in either of two disorganized parties. Republicans didnt learn much from their disorganized politics under presidents Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover, which led to the Great Depression (19291939). During those three presidencies, Republicans controlled both houses of Congress (1921 to 1933). Republicans had no one else to blame for the Great Depression bank failures, collapse of the stock markets, 25% unemployment, and fearful retreat of consumers. The great drought of the 1930s made conditions even worse farm foreclosures, decreased trade, disappearance of agricultural jobs, and growth of a poverty class. When I was a kid, living up north, I always wondered how, on Feb. 2, some silly little animal in Pennsylvania could predict the weather. It was Groundhog Day, and supposedly if the groundhog saw his shadow and scurried back into his hole, there would be six more weeks of winter. If he didnt see his shadow, there would be an early spring. The biggest celebration is in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. In fact, a cult movie starring Bill Murray was made in 1993 featuring this festival and, indeed, a festival has built up around this holiday. The people in Pennsylvania take this quite seriously. So imagine their chagrin when the prosecuting attorney (similar to our state attorney and big cities district attorneys) of Butler County, Ohio, issued an indictment against Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog, for lying about winter. It seems that Phil said there would be an early spring, and last week and this week mid-Ohio, as well as Pennsylvania, was buried under several inches of snow. The tongue-in-cheek indictment from Ohio went even further it sought the death penalty against Phil. This, of course, raised the ire of the folks in Pennsylvania. They have sent a letter to Butler County, Ohio, with a cease and desist order, claiming that the prosecutor in Ohio had no jurisdiction over any event that happened in Pennsylvania. And you thought you had problems? Whats next extradition? Poor Phil. He was awakened from his winter hibernation by some guy in a funny hat and crazy outfit, pulled out of his cozy hole into the frozen tundra of Pennsylvania, given a quick look at the ground to see if his shadow was there, and then put back for the rest of his slumber. And what does he find upon his awakening? Only that a contract has been put out on him by the people of Ohio. While, of course, this is just a fun event, it does bring into focus the problems faced by weather forecasters. Just 11 days ago the local TV forecasters were telling us to get ready for a dry spell, with no rain for at least 12 days. Since then, weve had two fronts come through, the latest over the weekend, some with violent weather attached. The weather patterns have been a little strange, and as of this writing Monday our temperatures are dipping into jacket weather again. So while you consider the plight of weather forecasters, consider what Phil in Pennsylvania is going through. While we may blame the local forecasters for messing up our weekends, at least we dont put contracts out on them. But poor Phil hell have to look over his shoulder until the weather warms up.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

In case you wondered about the disconnect between the major television networks and the American public, there was an incident last week that should set you straight. CBS has a show called The Amazing Race, which is not high on our must see list. About a week ago, the episode of the show was set in Hanoi, North Vietnam. Among the scenes was a downed American jet from years ago. The racers also had to learn a song that the children of Hanoi sang to them, and some of the lyrics included Vietnam Communist Party is glorious. The light is guiding us to victory. Needless to say, many Americans, especially Vietnam veterans, were infuriated. There were demands to CBS for an apology, with social media playing a big part in the effort. The complaints included some from Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain, who was once a prisoner of war in Vietnam. Finally, on Sunday, one week after the Hanoi episode ran, a CBS official apologized at the beginning of the new segment. Many called it too little, too late. Some said they find it hard to believe that no one at CBS apparently thought this episode would be offensive. Actually, knowing the insensitive makeup of the networks, were not that surprised. Networks will do almost anything for ratings, and if it happens that they offend somebody, so what. The pressure on the network was so bad that it obviously had to apologize, but that doesnt absolve the executives from allowing this sort of thing on the air. Were sure that many Vietnam veterans, including those from this area, were among those offended. And we hope that the networks learn a lesson from this. Past wars and their effects still linger in the minds of people. An extra effort should be made not to disturb them.

Maryann Rohde Ocala GUEST COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN Americans have forgotten about the Iraq war, which began 10 years ago this week, and the Afghan war, the longest in American history, but the U.S. government is still throwing its weight around in both countries. The Iraq war, the pretext for which was nonexistent weapons of mass destruction, officially ended in 2011 with the withdrawal of virtually all of Americas combat troops. But the havoc wreaked by the U.S. invasion and regime change goes on. Over a hundred thousand Iraqis were killed in the war itself, but many more died in the aftermath from sectarian violence and the obliterated infrastructure. (Iraq had never recovered from the destruction inflicted by the U.S. government in the 1991 Gulf War and in the decade of sanctions related to it.) Millions fled their homes. The U.S. occupation unleashed bitter sectarian violence, complete with U.S.-trained death squads, leading the numerically dominant Shiite Muslims (who are friendly to Iran) to cleanse the Sunnis from Baghdad. A Sunni insurgency against the occupation inflicted heavy casualties until American money managed to have the guns turned on the al-Qaeda affiliate, which was not in Iraq before the U.S. The disasters that U.S. intervention created PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE9

Friday, March 29, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 34~ Friday, March 29, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Dear EarthTalk: Im getting my roof redone and have heard about solar shingles. Are they availableand are they practical for the Northeast? John Denson, Glastonbury, CTSolar shingles are photovoltaic cells designed to look like and integrate with conventional asphalt roof shingles. First commercially available in 2005, solar shingles were much more costly than traditional bolt-on photovoltaic panels, and thus were used mainly by those wanting to go solar but maintain a traditional roofline. But more recently solar shingles have become price-competitive with bolt-on panels, and are getting much more popular accordingly. Eco-conscious home and building owners might find solar shingles especially attractive when they are re-shingling anyway since the solar shingles also double as functional, protective and weatherproof roof shingles in their own right. The biggest name in solar shingles is Dows Powerhouse line, which uses cutting edge Copper Indium Gallium Selenide solar cells (aka thin-film solar) to turn sunlight into electricity via a supplied inverter box. The Powerhouse shingles generate 12 watts per square foot and are gridtied, meaning theyre designed for structures already connected to the power grid and can send excess power back to the grid. They are wireless, snap together and can be installed by regular roofing contractors just like (or alongside) conventional asphalt shingles (an electrician needs to set up the inverter box). Dow reports that a typical residential cluster of 350 solar singles on a roof could slash ones household electric bill by 40-60 percent. Such an installation can cost a homeowner over $20,000, but federal, state and local incentives can bring the cost to half that in some areas. Powerhouse shingles are currently available (from Dow-authorized contractors) in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Texas and Washington, D.C. Another leader in solar shingles is building products manufacturer CertainTeed. The companys Apollo line of gridtied monocrystalline solar shingles and roofing tiles offers efficiency similar to larger bolt-on photovoltaic arrays at around the same price (and incentives similar to those for Dow may also apply) but with less bulk: Each Apollo tile is less than an inch thick and will integrate with, replace, or lay on top of existing asphalt roof shingles or tiles and generate 12 watts of power per square foot. CertainTeed says a typical installation will save homeowners 40-70 percent on their electric bills. Their Apollo products are available across the U.S. but the company recommends using one of their authorized roofing contractors to make sure they are installed properly. Now is an especially good time to go solarshingles or otherwisebecause costs have started to come down and the federal government is still offering 30 percent tax credits with no cap on the purchase of solar electricity equipment. Twenty-seven states and several cities offer additional incentives that can get pricing on solar gear and installations down even lower. For more information check out the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE), a free online resource provided by the North Carolina Solar Center and IREC EARTH TALKCONTINUED FROM PAGE 32 TAI VIINIKKA, COURTESY FLICKRRecently solar shingles have become price-competitive with bolt-on panels, and are getting much more popular accordingly. On top of that, federal, state and local incentives can bring the cost down considerably more. Pictured: solar shingles from the Dow Powerhouse line. with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy.

Trained by Catalog for OBS available PLEASESEEOBS, PAGE3 In the hope that civil discourse will lead to civic action, Justice Sandra Day OConnor during the course of her career always invited her colleagues to break bread with her. A group of concerned Marion County activists wishes to do likewise by expanding our community conversation about important issues of the day with a monthly luncheon speaker series to be known as The Friday Forum. The first will take place on Friday, April 12, at 11:30 a.m. at Buffet City. People from all walks of life who share an interest in our community and the welfare of all our people are invited to attend. Bruce Seaman, pastor at Fairfield Presbyterian Church and coordinator of Awake Marion, an affiliate of the statewide coalition of progressive groups known as Awake the State, will be the first speaker. He will describe the groups current initiatives and introduce their project leaders. They include: Chris Altobello, president, Marion Education Association; Judy Etzler, Water Well Justice (water issues); Anita Frauenshuh, Amendment 11 activist on behalf of low income seniors; Pat Hawk, Pat Hawk Marketing (water issues); Whitfield Jenkins, vice president, local NAACP (Juvenile Justice); Nancy Noonan, president, Marions United for Public Education; Ray Seaman, online director, Progress Florida; and Mike Sizemore, retired railroad executive who advocates for local control of Munroe Hospital. Future speakers will include Cynthia Barnett, acclaimed author of Blue Revolution: Unmaking Americas Water Crisis.
