Easter event at Tuscawilla draws a crowd The Easter Bunny brought beautiful weather to the area for the 14th annual Easter egg hunt at Tuscawilla Park. The day started off cool but warmed up quickly and a nice breeze came after lunchtime. Besides the Easter egg hunt, many other activities were available at no charge. Food vendors were available also. Some of the other activities were pony rides, face painting, egg coloring, and swings on a well padded surface. The egg hunt for different age levels was held across the street from the other activities. A popular activity was coloring eggs. The children did not know where to start as there were several colors available.

Our dual enrollment programs allow high school students to obtain college credit prior to graduation. Serving our students through dual enrollment is a testament to the strength of Floridas seamless education system. All 28 FCS institutions have dual enrollment programs that enrolled 50,054 students in 2011-12. The FCS is the states leading provider of dual enrollment opportunities, serving 83 percent of dual enrollment students. Through the grant, all FCS institutions will have access to the Florida Dual Enrollment Springboard. The College of Central Florida will develop the springboard through collaboration with the Florida Department of Education, Florida colleges and school districts to include a comprehensive website, two sets of professional development tutorials and resources, and a student success preparation kit. The springboard will be available later this year. The Florida Dual Enrollment Springboard and legislative recognition of the cost and value of dual enrollments will go a long way toward greater acceleration of student learning and degree completions in Florida, said Dr. Jim Henningsen, College of Central Florida president. We see dual enrollment as an important part of our overall efforts to achieve more for students and for Florida. The Florida Dual Enrollment Springboard will be an invaluable tool for educators and administrators in Floridas public schools and the Florida College System, said Florida College System Chancellor Randy Hanna. Floridas students will benefit from increased collaboration and support services that will improve their success in dual enrollment courses. I commend the College of Central Florida on its strong proposal and look forward to the statewide release of the springboard. DUALCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Install high-efficiency showerheads, faucets and toilets. Outdoor Check your homes irrigation system for leaks to save up to 6,300 gallons of water per month. Turn off your homes irrigation system and only water as needed; save up to 2,000 gallons each time a watering day is skipped. Dont leave sprinklers unattended. Use a kitchen timer to remind yourself to turn sprinklers off. Use a hose with a shutoff nozzle when washing the car to save around 40 gallons per wash. Consider installing a rain barrel with a drip irrigation system for watering your landscaping. Rainwater is free and better for your plants because it doesnt contain hard minerals. Leaks are the biggest water waster, both inside and outside of your home. You can use your water meter to check for leaks. Turn off all faucets and water-using appliances and make sure no one uses water during the testing period. Remember to wait for the hot water heater and ice cube makers to refill and for regeneration of water softeners. Go to your water meter and record the current reading. Wait 30 minutes. (Remember: no water should be used during this period.) Read the meter again. If the reading has changed, you have a leak.

Governor Rick Scott said, A great education is critical to providing students job opportunities after graduation, which is why my budget invests $1.1 billion for Florida colleges. Its through innovations like the $10K Degree Challenge that the Florida College System helps Florida families pursue their dreams. View the Governors proclamation about FCS Month. The primary mission of the FCS is to provide access to high-quality affordable education that prepares students for continued education or jobs. Floridas 28 colleges operate 181 sites throughout the state and serve nearly a million Floridians. Colleges offer a dyCommunity College Month observed namic array of educational opportunities, including adult education, developmental education, vocational certificates, associate and baccalaureate degrees, and community education. Here are a few FCS highlights: The FCS is proud to serve all students: 63 percent are part-time, 55 percent are minority, 59 percent are female, and the average student age is 26. Two-thirds of high school graduates enrolling in postsecondary education in Florida enroll in the FCS. Through Floridas strong 2+2 articulation system, FCS associate in arts graduates are guaranteed admission into one of the great state universities in Florida. Fiftyfour percent of juniors and seniors in state universities transferred from the FCS. One-hundred percent of FCS institutions that offer bachelors degrees have accepted Governor Rick Scotts challenge to work to develop bachelors degrees costing students no more than $10,000. Eighty-eight percent of FCS graduates are continuing their education or employed within one year of graduation. The average starting salary of FCS bachelors degree graduates is $46,186. The average starting salary of FCS associate in science degree graduates is $44,095. years, Peter Boettke writes in his new book, Living Economics. To hold otherwise is to believe that a society could have generated other norms, under which, say, a fall in supply relative to demand caused prices to drop, or a fall in demand relative to supply caused prices to rise. But it is not by social agreement that those things never happen. As the great Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises wrote, The development of economics did more to transform human thinking than any other scientific theory before or since. Up to that time it had been believed that no bounds other than those drawn by the laws of nature circumscribed the path of acting man. It was not known that there is still something more that sets a limit to political power beyond which it cannot go. Now it was learned that in the social realm too there is something operative which power and force are unable to alter and to which they must adjust themselves if they hope to achieve success, in precisely the same way as they must take into account the laws of nature. Disbelief in economic laws that operate independently of human will is the sign of a primitive mind. No one has a good excuse for believing that government can create real wealth simply by creating money. The value of money is not determined by social convention. It is determined by supply and demand. When the central bank creates money, it doesnt create useful goods. It may merely shift purchasing power from the people to the Treasury or to special interests. That is, inflation is a form of theft.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) in Fairfax, Va. RICHMAN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 24 Play scheduled at West PortMarion County Center for the Arts Omega Theatre Company will present the musical Smile April 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m. and April 21 at 2 p.m. at the West Port High School Performing Arts Center, located at 3733 S.W. 80th Ave. in Ocala. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and senior citizens. Tickets will be available at the door or in advance at www.westportwolfpack.org. With music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Howard Ashman, Smile was inspired by the 1975 film of the same name, directed by Michael Ritchie with a screenplay by Jerry Belson. The musical depicts the offstage difficulties of the fictitious 1985 California Young American Miss beauty pageant held in Santa Rosa, California. Students Amanda Glenn and Savannah Hirst portray two contestants who befriend each other throughout the pageant. Krystal Ortega plays the pageant coordinator, Brenda DiCarlo Freelander, and Keaton Long takes on the role of her beleaguered husband, Big Bob Freelander. Students in the musical theatre program round out the large ensemble cast.

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, are the foundations of social media. Together, these sites have made it possible for social networking to really take hold and take off. As with any popular platform, you start to see trends that are evident across all networks. One of the most popular trends is the use of the hashtag (#). But what exactly is it, and can your company use it? The hashtag (#), commonly referred to on telephone systems as the pound key, is a character first used by users of the popular social network Twitter. According to the help forum on Twitter, It is used to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet. It was created organically by Twitter users as a way to categorize messages. Look at nearly any Twitter message and there will usually be hashtags attached. If you were to search for the term e.g., #Cloudbackup on Twitter, you would get a list of all tweets that have mentioned the above example. When Twitter talks about a trending topic it means a subject that has become popular. This way of categorization has become so popular amongst Twitter users that its starting to spill over onto the other networks. Instagram for instance has given members the ability to add hashtags to pictures, so that they can be added to groups which can subsequently be searched for. Even Google has gotten in on the act, with Google+ and YouTube both supporting this system. With Facebook, the hashtag has come to give context to a status. Youve probably seen some status updates such as: I love Mondays #sarcasm #bored. This should be read with a sarcastic and slightly bored tone. Because of the usefulness of the hashtag, some users have become overzealous in their use. Reading a Tweet that says #Friday is #awesome, here comes a #fun #weekend. just looks unprofessional and could put off followers. While effective, there are some basic rules you should follow to help get the most out of your hashtags. Heres four. No long hashtags. Hashtags are meant to be short and associated with one word. Dont make the mistake of adding more than about two words together, as the likelihood of users finding the tag will decrease. e.g., #Cloudservicesareawesome should be avoided, use #cloudservices instead. Minimize their use. It can be tempting to hashtag every keyword in messages, however makes them look weird, while decreasing their readability. It is a good idea to limit use to one or two per message. The hashtag is special. Dont use it for everyday words. Instead use it for product names, or a special part of the announcement. Remember that you dont have to use hashtags in every message. Check out Samsung Mobiles Twitter feed to see a good example of proper use. Use a unique hashtag. If you can, try to use a unique hashtag, something that followers will be able to associate and relate to you. The key here is that when its used, the user is referred to you, and only you. Do a quick search on Twitter for the hashtag you would like to use, to ensure its not taken. Many companies will shorten their tag to initials or a shorter term, which is perfectly acceptable. Hashtags, when used correctly, can be a great way to build brand identity and increase social media presence.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 More on Page 6 BY RICH LOWRY The nation's elementary schools are overrun by small-minded and unreasonable people, prone to hysterics, who can't distinguish between make-believe and reality. They are called school administrators. In the wake of the Newtown, Conn., massacre, they have been punishing little children for making gunlike gestures with their fingers and other harmless horseplay. The people who run our schools must have been too busy brushing up on their "zero tolerance" policies to notice that Newtown was perpetrated with an AR-15, not with a toy or with a finger. We expect 5-year-olds to be childish. What's the excuse for the people running our schools? Five-year-old Joseph Cruz brandished a gun made out of Legos in his day-care program while, in the words of the Barnstable Public School District in Hyannis, Mass., "simulating the sound of gunfire." For a layman, that's called saying "pow." Cruz got a stiff warning for "using daycare toys inappropriately." A 5-year-old girl was suspended from kindergarten at Mount Carmel Area Elementary School in Northumberland County, Pa., after "threatening" to shoot classmates with her pink Hello Kitty gun that fires soapy bubbles. A mandatory psychological evaluation found, according to a news report, "that the girl did not represent any threat to others." Whew. White Marsh Elementary in Maryland suspended two first-graders for playing cops and robbers on the playground. In true 21st-century fashion, the school board said it was forbidden from giving out more information "due to confidentially requirements under the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)." An 8-year-old in Prince William County, Va., was suspended for firing back with an imaginary gun after a friend shot him with an imaginary bow and arrow. Evidently, nothing happened to the other kid. This points to a disturbing "bow and arrow" loophole that could conceivably accommodate everything from imaginary poison darts to make-believe medieval siege weapons. The Al Capone of the zero-tolerance offenders is the daring second-grader in Anne Arundel County, Md., who chewed his strawberry breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun and then brazenly pointed it at a classmate. Park Elementary school suspended him for two days. Who defends this foolish lack of proportion? The American Association of School Administrators. Its executive director, Dan Domenech, told USA Today: "Parents have to be aware that talking about guns or using your fingers to point like a gun is no longer tolerable or prudent." Why, pray tell? School shooters tend to be disturbed young men. In no case has a shooter ever been an adorable 5-yearold child. In the grips of a strange mania, school administrators believe that any symbolic representation of a gun, no matter how innocent, is all but indistinguishable from a real gun. This is not a mistake that gun owners make. The fake-finger gun doesn't do much for the average sportsman. It can't bring down a deer, and doesn't exactly light up the gun range. No matter. We don't have common sense; we have rules. We don't have judgment; we have bureaucratic procedure. Too often, our grown-ups are the ones desperately in need of adult supervision.Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.(c) 2013 by King Features Synd., Inc. GUEST COMMENTARIES Elementary school administrators have rules, no common sense BY SHELDON RICHMAN Its hard to believe that in the 21st century, educated people believe the government can produce real wealth by creating money. Its especially ironic that the main preachers of this superstition fancy themselves progressives and are the first to accuse their opponents of being against science. What could be more antiscience than the alchemic proposal to create wealth by having the Federal Reserve make entries in a digital ledger? Its more absurd than alchemy: Alchemists claimed they could turn base metals into gold. Inflationists require only thin air. The commonsense reaction is: Balderdash! So it takes real devotion to the power of government to embrace such a ridiculous idea. Consider Chris Hayes, the MSNBC host. Last Saturday on his program, Up, he said this in introducing a segment on the proposal that the Treasury mint a $1 trillion coin to get around its debt limit: The simple truth is it [the government) creates money simply out of thin air. Someone at the Federal Reserve punches in a number on a spreadsheet and voila! more money. While there are rules that guide legal tender, at base, what makes money valuable is simply social convention, a norm. We all agree its valuable, so its valuable. The genius of the trillion dollar coin isnt just that it provides some much needed leverage against a foe unencumbered by any sense of propriety, it also illustrates the uncomfortable, foundational reality of modern capitalism: money is nothing more than a shared illusion. Its a kind of magic. But is it good magic or bad magic? At least he admits that in this case he believes in magic. The value of money is a convention, a norm, a shared illusion? Did society agree that the dollar should lose 95 percent of its purchasing power since the Federal Reserve opened its doors nearly a hundred years ago? This view is as unscientific as one can imagine. The science it rejects is economics. Beginning with Adam Smith (actually well before that), the most enlightened thinkers understood that economic regularities exist apart from human will; they are forces, or laws, generated by intrinsic features of human action, particularly exchange. It is not a social convention that, for example, when the supply of a good increases relative to demand (other things equal), the price falls, and vice versa. Nor is it a convention that when demand for a good rises relative to supply (other things equal), the price increases. It is the result of the logic of choice, which has been the mainline of economic thinking for hundreds of Progressives in American believe in money magic PLEASESEERICHMAN PAGE26 000EBQZ LLC CARPET CARE C O M P L E T E C A R P E T C A R E C O M P L E T E C A R P E T C A R E COMPLETE CARPET CARE Lic & Ins Specializing in: Carpet Stretching Carpet Repair Specializing in: Carpet Stretching Carpet Repair C ARPET & U PHOLSTERY C LEANING 352-282-1480 cell 352-547-1636 office Free In Home Estimates Lifetime Warranty 5 R OOMS & H ALLWAY $ 79 95 LAWN SERVICE 000EGK2 CROUCH Lawn Service No Wait at Great Rates Hedging and Weed Pulling up to 3 hrs $115 352-804-5630 000EE5F IRRIGATION LLC.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, April 5, 2013 B ack around 1990, I had occasion to make several trips between the East Coast of Florida and Ohio. The fastest route was up Interstate 77. You traveled Interstate 95 to South Carolina, took Interstate 26 to Columbia, then picked up I-77 all the way into Ohio. As one who doesnt like heights, I always dreaded one stretch of I77, just north of the North Carolina-Virginia border. When you cross into Virginia, you promptly are greeted by the Appalachian Mountains, and you start going up. After the first exit, the climb is seven miles into the heavens. When you finally get to the next exit, its a place called Fancy Gap, and you can breathe a little easier. A little further up the road is a town aptly named Hillsville, and from there its clear sailing. For those who like such things, those first seven miles provide a spectacular view, especially to your right as youre going north. At night you can see pinpoints of light that are obviously miles away, and you can get the sensation that youre flying. One reason for that is that over the right side, theres a cliff, then nothing. To your left is the southbound traffic with the mountain next to the highway, so southbound really doesnt make you squeamish. The worst seven miles of my driving life came going up this mountain. I hit it on a foggy day with snow falling. I was driving a little car called a Chevette (hey, it was cheap) that didnt have much get-up-and-go. I was just hoping that one of those big trucks hadnt stopped in my lane, because I would be crushed like a bug. The southbound side never bothered me much. There was a guardrail and the northbound lanes to stop me on the left, and a mountain on my right. Here, I was going down seven miles. There were even two truck emergency lanes, where trucks could get off and go up in soft ground to stop if their brakes failed. But speed was always a factor on the downhill side and, unfortunately, thats what happened a few days ago, on Easter Sunday. About 95 vehicles were involved in a series of 17 accidents, tying up traffic in both lanes. At last report three people were killed. Officials said fog was a factor, but so was excessive speed. I could easily relate to that. The pictures from the scene were devastating, just a pile of rubble and burned out vehicles. The Galax Gazette, a sister newspaper of ours located near that Hillsville exit, did a nice timeline showing the accident and its aftermath. As for me, Ill probably never make that trip again. I cant see any reason to go up that way, and I dont need the anxiety of going up that mountain. When I drive, I do it to relax. Climbing the Appalachians in fog and snow doesnt do much to ease tension. For those of you who might have occasion to drive up that way, especially those who are leaving this month to spend the summer up north, please drive safely and respect this stretch of road. And when you come back south, take it easy and get here in one piece. About 95 vehicles had their trip interrupted on Easter Sunday. Please dont become another statistic on this road.

T heres a website called flightaware.com for those who like to pretend they are air traffic controllers. When you go to that site, on the left theres an airport tracker/info section. You can put in the name of the city you want to view or, if you know it, the threeletter airport code (thats the three letters you find on your luggage, JFK for Kennedy, LGA for LaGuardia, MCO for Orlando, TPA for Tampa, etc.). You will find yourself looking at the same radar that controllers see, just slightly time delayed for security. You can easily switch airports, and watch flights with the airline, the type of plane, the speed, origination and destination, and cruising altitude. But if you type in OCF, which is the code for Ocala, youll be asking, Where did everybody go? You will still be able to see the overflights, planes going to other airports that are flying over Ocala, but youll soon realize that none of them are coming here. Thats why were not particularly concerned that the FAA has decided to close the control tower, yes, the nice new control tower, at Ocala International Airport. The airport used to run just fine without the tower, and it will continue to do so. The FAA is closing down towers at many small airports across the nation, and Ocala is on the list. The tower is slated to shut down later this month. The reason, of course, is money. Were sure there are pilots who like having the control tower to help make sure that their airspace is clear. But with the land as flat as it is around here, visual landings are much easier than, say, Atlanta or Denver, places with mountains in the area. So dont worry. Its not likely that planes will be dropping on our houses and streets because of the lack of an operational control tower. Now, what do they do with that tower thats sitting out there. Maybe it can be a tourist attraction. Hey everybody, come out and pretend youre guiding planes to landings. Or you can be a ground controller, steering all those planes around the tarmac. Maybe they can even put a computer with flightaware.com in there, to simulate the real thing. Apparently thats as close as were going to get around here for a while. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Closing of tower not a big deal Crash brings back some memories READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The Korean War, the forgotten warWhile driving in the car today, I had on a talk radio station. They were discussing the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Primarily talking about WWII veterans numbers diminishing, but they also commented, there are the Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans still holding forth. Then there was a question called in about Korean war veterans, and the commentator said, Oh yes theres some of those guys left and theyre getting into their 80s now. Being a Korean war veteran, that stung pretty deep. After all there are a lot of 20 year veterans who were never in a war, and did really nothing but fill a spot and draw a pay. I guess a little history lesson is in order. At the time of the Korean War, it was called a police action. The pilots and crewmen we lost in air combat would beg to differ with you. Oh yes, I was aboard the aircraft carrier, USS Leyte CV-32. The Leyte was honored to have the first African-American pilot, Ensign Jesse L. Brown, in the Navy, aboard the Leyte, serving in VF-32, flying F4U Corsairs. Unfortunately Ensign Brown, was killed in combat serving his country. He was shot down by ground fire over Hangaru-ri, North Korea on December 4, 1950, and received the Distinguished Flying Cross. The Korean War has never ended with a peace treaty or surrender, in fact the war is still active, 63 years old this year In fact, North Korea, just two weeks ago, canceled the armistice they signed in July of 1953. So you see, the Korean war is officially still active after 63 years. If you need proof, we still have American troops in South Korea and the Demilitarized Zone. The Afghanistan war is only 10 years old. Ho Hum! The Korean War fighting lasted only three years, from July 1950 to July 1953, and 55,000 service men lost their lives, and hundreds of thousands wounded. I guess theres a great many people who just dont get it, that the Korean War was horrible, 55,000 men lost their lives. Oh yes, no Honor Flights for us. Then if that wasnt bad enough, the USS Leyte suffered two severe explosions during re-outfitting in the Boston Naval Yard, South Annex, on October 16, 1953. Thirty seven men, 32 Navy men, and five civilian workers were killed, and 40 more wounded. Well folks, I could write a full newspaper page of information regarding the Korean War, and my ship, the USS Leyte CV-32, in particular, but it would never be printed. Remember, the Koran war is the Forgotten War. Mr. Sheldon Richman, of the Future of Freedom Foundation said, the war in Afghanistan is the longest war in our history. He should brush up on our history, as hes wrong.. Oh yes, if the unstable young 26 year old leader of North Korea has his way, the Korean War could be the Second War, using nuclear weapons. Think on that for a while. At least the Korean War wasnt the drug war. Bill Ford Oak RunGuns dont kill people? 1 am tired of hearing the oversimplified bumper sticker slogan guns dont kill people ... people kill people. For those of you who dont see the obvious irrelelevance of this statement allow me to make my point. Hammers dont drive nails....people drive nails. If you needed to drive a nail, what tool would you reach for? A few of us might grab a rock or a heavy wrench but the vast majority (100% statistically) of nails are driven by hammers because hammers really do drive nails. The exact same logic applies to guns. If you wanted to kill as many people as possible and as quickly as possible, what tool would you reach for? Lets get real here. Joe Peck Dunnelion LETTERS TO THE EDITOR What can it hurt?If you want to influence the future of America and its people, simply ask God for His help. Its certainly beneficial to be mindful of the issues that confront America. Discussing the issues with your family, friends, neighbors, clerics, and politicians helps considerably. Reading a newspapers opinion page also helps. Just remember that opinions are just that opinions. They dont necessarily reflect reality. The most important thing you can do, however, is to pray to God for His influence. You must not give God your version of how to resolve an issue, simply give Him your thanks for His bountiful blessings, express your thoughts and feelings on the issue, and ask for His intervention. If your requests are righteous and arent contrary to Gods tenets, he will act on them. So offer your prayers for Americas future ... or, for that matter, for almost any reason. What can it hurt? Youll be helping America and yourself, and you will realize a personal satisfaction as well. Joe OHara Ocala Read the classifieds More letters on Page 10 157,500 employees in 1,070 locations in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, and Tennessee, Publix customers and associates raised an incredible $4.5 million in 2012 and $43 million since 1995 to help give all babies a healthy start and educate moms-to-be about the importance of taking the B vitamin folic acid.

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

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, April 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com M arch Madness is almost over. The final game for mens NCAA basketball championship will be Monday. But then NBA playoffs start Saturday April 20 with the finals some time in June. With the ball bouncing down Pun Alley towards the basket, there is no doubt about todays theme. Obvious AnswerTaken away from the TV by a phone call in the last minutes of the playoff game, Elliot asked his wife to watch and tell him who won. A few minutes later, his wife walked into his study. What was the score? he asked, covering the mouthpiece. It was 88 to 86. Oh, man! Who won? She said, Eighty Eight did. Barnyard GameIt was the strangest thing the coach had ever seen in basketball. Every time a player pushed or traveled or hacked, the referee failed to assess a penalty. Instead, hed cup his hands to his mouth and shout out the name of a barnyard bird. The coach finally had enough of this and went over to the referee. What do you think youre doing? Their guy elbows one of mine, you yell, Chicken! They trip one of my boys, you shout, Hen. Whats going on here? What are you, stupid? the referee snapped. Im calling fowls. Chop Suey?Some years ago in the Olympics the U.S. basketball team easily beat the Chinese team. When asked about the win, the U.S. coach said, It was a lot of fun playing the Chinese, but an hour later, we wanted to play them again. Foul shots The sportscasters who specialize in basketball have decided to form a club. The name, of course, is Full Court Press. Finding sneakers for basketball centers is no small feat. Murphy wasnt only a star hoopster, he was the greatest Irish student in history. He got his degree in just three terms: Clintons, Bushs, and Obamas. The senator suggested erasing the national deficit by charging refs a dollar for every bad call. The coach walked into the dressing room between halves to bawl out his highly touted college team: You guys are playing like a bunch of amateurs. At the local gyms basketball court the sign read, Anyone caught hanging from the rim will be suspended. A true basketball fan is one who sits in the front row and after the game, says, What cheerleaders? An unbelievable story about a basketball player is obviously a tall tale. The Washington Bullets are changing their name because the owners no longer want their teams name to be associated with crime. So from now on the team will be known as the Bullets. Poor Rupert, the masseur for the professional basketball team, was fired because he rubbed the players the wrong way. The sign at the gym where the college was holding open tryouts for the basketball team read, if you can pass through this door without bending, dont. The ant basketball team made a vow, to get better, but didnt know how. No, it just wasnt right to be lacking in height. What they needed were tolerance, now. The basketball player sat on the sidelines and sketched turkeys. He was learning to draw fowls. Higher Education Lenny, the high-school basketball miracle was told he had to pass the simplest math quiz imaginable in order to be admitted to the university. All I want you to do is count to fifteen, the math teacher said. Lenny looked down at his hands, began to count, got to ten, then faltered. The teacher said, Come on, Lenny. Cant you count any higher? Thinking hard, he raised his hands above his head and said, One, two, three ... Shoot! The University coach gathered his team around him. OK guys, remember, this is basketball, a game to develop initiative, your ability to lead & individualization within a team effort. Now go out there and do exactly as I say.Tall taleA basketball coach told an associate of a wonderful dream he had had the previous night. I met this beautiful dame, he said. Her face was adorable, her figure breathtaking, and she promptly said she had always liked me more than a little, and wouldnt I come up to her room, where she had a surprise for me. Well, when I got there she introduced me to her kid brother. Hes 7 feet 6 inches tall. Boy, what a dream!Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Were looking for a few good men! No, were looking for more than a few good men. Were looking for all you good men out there who love singing and, believe it or not, can sing. There are many of you everywhere in Marion and the surrounding counties who are a might timid to go out in public and sing your little hearts out. Well fear not, we have the solution that will turn you into a roaring vocal volcano that the public will clamor for more and more. We are confidence builders. We were all just like you before we met the Barbershop Harmony Society. It didnt take long before we found out they liked to sing just as much as we did. Singing together helped us shed any fears we had about singing before the public. We know youre going to ask, Who are these guys? Are they some kind of miracle workers? No, theyre men just like you who work at their hobby and help each other rid themselves of any fears. Its a team effort that pays musical dividends. Ill bet your champing at the bit to find out just who these extraordinary men are that will go to any extreme to help their fellow man do well. We are The Big Sun Chorus from Ocala. We are a chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, a nonprofit organization. We are those men of distinction. We are The Barbershoppers. Our form and style of singing was born and bred in the good old US of A. Along with our brothers in nine affiliates around the globe. From Germany to New Zealand and from Canada to South Africa we form the largest male singing society in the world. Our chapter meets every Monday evening, (unless we get snowed out) at 6:30 p.m. at the Ocala West United Methodist Church located at 9330 S.W. 105th St. in Ocala. For further information, contact: Doug Oxford 352-527-6980. Thank you for your attention and remember, all we ask of you is to help us Keep the whole world singing (our motto). Peter Musella Big Sun ChorusAmendment 11 Im writing in response to the article in the Citizen concerning views on Amendment 11. Im one of the 61 one percent who voted for it. It was the right decision to make for our senior residents who meet the qualifications set forth in the amendment. Both articles agree that very few residents would be eligible under the guidelines set forth in the amendment, it seems to me its the loss of tax revenue that is the issue to those opposed to it and not the qualifications set forth to be eligible. If the county can find hundreds of thousands of dollars for tax relief to entice companies to locate here we can surly find some additional tax relief for those who meet the requirements of Amendment 11. We have to be a community that makes sure its most vulnerable members are cared for. These are the folks under the amendment who were here long before the commissioners or I arrived on the scene.

AFTER VISITING FRIENDS By Michael Hainey One thing Michael Hainey finally learned was that among newspapermen in the 1960s and s there was a code preventing them from ratting on a colleague. This formed the decadeslong obstacle against finding out the truth about his fathers untimely death. Hainey was only six when his Uncle Dick knocked on the door to tell the family that his father had collapsed and died alone in the street on Chicagos North Side. Being out until all hours was not unusual for the elder Hainey, the Night Slot Man at the Chicago Sun Times. And his widow never questions the circumstances. Over the years Michael was unable to extract any information from his silent, opaque mother. To his many inquiries she would strangely point to a scene in The Godfather in which Michael Corleones wife Kay asks him if he killed his sisters husband-to which Michael replies, Never ask me about my business, Kay. Restless Hainey is certain that his father did not just collapse and die in an unfamiliar part of town. And three obituaries had added after visiting friends. But who, Hainey wondered, were these friends who never showed up at the wake or identified themselves. Even the smallest clue drives Michael to pack his bags and fly to his fathers former co-workers wherever he finds them. But now aging they merely clam up and say, I dont remember anything about that night. The explanation when he finally unravels it is easy enough to understand but then armed with the truth the son cannot reveal it to his motherat least not right away. He finds the mother who did her best to raise her two sons by herself a lonely person given to playing Solitaire. He once asked her about her forRecommended: Beautifully written memoir Bookmark Pat Wellington mer friends and her answer was cryptic: Married women dont like single women. If one appears in the group, they cast her out. Ill never forget the women who cut me loose, she had said without lifting her eyes from the cards. What makes After Visiting Friends so magnetic is not the mystery of Bob Haineys death but rather the troubled skein of family relationships and the authors anxiety and frustration that becomes the readers as well. This is a beautifully written memoir that I recommend. Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Dr. Stubrud, Dr. Sands and Dr. Simpson Chiropractic, Massage, Acupuncture N 1/4 Mi.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, April 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I am not one to boast, at least not about myself unless someone is listening, but I do give some time to exercising the little gray cells in my mind. Many people, no names given, spend most of their time yapping while people like me spend their time napping. While napping, I am also exercising my mind. Some people exercise their mind by doing crossword puzzles. I tried this but every once in a while Ill think of the right word and then that word makes me think of something else and that makes me think of something else altogether and pretty soon Im off on one of my little mind trips. One thing about these little mind trips of mine, they do not cost very much and when I come to, I am quite refreshed. One danger about my little mind trips is that sometimes I am not alone when I am tripping out. This can be quite dangerous to my health. Last week, for example, I was driving across town and happened to engage in one of my little mind trips. It must have been a good one because I was thoroughly enjoying my trip and then I began to hear in the background a variety of words that did not seem connected nor did they make sense. These words did not have anything whatsoever to do with the little trip I was on at the time. Then the words started to fall into some kind of an order. Are... You... Listening... To... What... Im... Saying? At first, they did not seem connected and to be truthful it rather upset me because these words were interrupting a very nice mind trip I was on at the time. I hate it when I am interrupted by such nonsense. For some reason I happened to glance over to At this time of year, Ive got Easter on my mind my right and was shocked to discover that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was sitting in the passenger seat. At first, I thought I was hallucinating. However, she was looking back at me! I stared at her for a minute and then demanded, What are you doing in my car? She gave me one of those looks indicating I was in serious trouble. Then it dawned on me. We were going across town to go shopping. For some reason I had tuned everything out and slipped into a wonderful mind trip. Well, for the rest of the trip I was listening to a voice but that voice was not in my head; it was in my ears. Both of them. I had to leave my little mind trip for another occasion when I was by myself. I must confess that when I get on one of those mind trips of mine I lose sense of everything around me. I have a very active mind; of course, my wife says I have a very active imagination. I am not sure the difference, and I am not about to ask her, either. Some mysteries in life should be just that. A mystery. One mind trip that I get on to about this time a year is Easter. Lately I have had Easter on my mind. I know the word Easter, is not a very politically correct word today. But then I am not running for politics, in fact, I am running away from politics as much as possible. I like the word Easter. In some places, they are changing the Easter Bunny to the Spring Bunny and the Easter Egg Hunt to the Spring Egg Hunt. This is supposed to be more PC tolerable. After all, it is important that we should be PC in everything we do. Those people who object to the word Easter, I wonder if they really know where it came from. To some the Easter Bunny has some kind of a religious connotation. Personally, I never discovered what denomination the Easter Bunny is a member of. Where does the Easter Bunny attend church? The First Church of the Easter Egg Hunt? It has become a popular thing not to tolerate religion in our country. Well, let me correct that. We tolerate all religions except Christianity. It is too bad the people who cannot tolerate Christianity are unable to read. I think it is sad this generation is not able to read anymore, because if they were, they might read some of the history of this country and discover it was founded on Christian principles. Imagine that! I can understand why people are confused about Easter with the Easter Bunny and the Easter Egg. Most are confused about how the Easter Bunny can lay Easter Eggs. They are only familiar with Bugs Bunny and everybody knows he cannot lay an egg. So, where do these mysterious Easter Eggs come from? Laying all that nonsense aside, and that is all it is, Easter has some very wonderful memories for me. Say what they will, nothing they say can undermine the wonderful thoughts I have about Easter. I like what the apostle Paul says, For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV). The songwriter was right when he said, Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Read the classifieds T his Easter, after walking a neighbors dog I came upon an interesting sight. There on some of the lawns, were colored Easter eggs. Now that isnt really so unusual, but what was, is there was an, (dare I say) Easter Bunny hopping along at a good clip in the yard across the street. I blinked, to be sure I wasnt seeing things, and yet, there it was again. When I got to my lawn, there on the grass were two eggs. One was yellow, the other was green! I was very surprised, and happy to see that such wonderful things can still happen on Easter day! What a strange Easter morning that was! ShuffleboardEd Durham says that the troops are increasing, but we can still use a few more players for our games on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6:30. Ive even gotten addicted, which is easy to do! Its fun, its great exercise, and the people who play are very helpful and silly at times. It doesnt cost anything to come out and try it! By the way, Paul Roy is waxing up those babies so the slide as though they are on ice. Wow!Bratwurst roastOn April 14, we are having out second roast. There is a sign up sheet in the Clubhouse. You can bring a side dish, and the brats, drinks and eating plates and utensils are provided. Its a $3 charge to have a great time, and listen to entertainment. Womens PokerToday, I stopped by the Clubhouse to meet with the women that play poker on Mondays at 12:30. What a terrific bunch of gals. They were munching on snacks, telling jokes and having a wonderful time. They said its a perfect time to socialize and meet new people in the neighborhood. It looks like Ill be playing along with them next week. What a super warm weather activity during the hotter months! Why not join us? Strange happenings on Easter in Spruce Creek North Person of interest Ray, from the Clubhouse does a terrific job of keeping the place spotlessly clean, well maintained and comfortable. He is ready and willing to lend a hand when called upon for help. He and Dan keep our common area beautiful, all year long! Thank you very much, guys! Just a reminderOn April 17 there will be an open Board meeting at the Clubhouse. The guest speaker will be Laurie Cropley from Heirs-Baxley. She will be discussing complementary planning and is offering free refreshments to all who attend. The fun starts at 6:30. It sounds good to me! In my opinionWhen I go for my morning walk with Casey, my canine friend, I often notice how lovely our neighborhood looks. With the arrival of spring, the new buds coming out, and the freshly planted flowers, it looks spectacular. Taking pride in our homes and community counts a lot for what others think of where we live. So, Ive gotten out my gloves and trowel, and watch to see how soon my spring yard takes shape. We can all have an appealing neighborhood with just a little work. Thanks to all of you for keeping your yards and houses so beautiful.

A system based on 10 with numerals invented by the Arabs. Numbers, just numbers, who can fathom them all? Six million. The number of Jews murdered by the Nazis during the Holocaust years of 1935 when Hitler took power in Germany until the defeat of the Japanese army and end of World War II in 1945. Men, women and children. Killed by poison gas, bayonetting or gunshot because they were Jewish by birth. Numbers, just numbers. Three million. The number of Jews killed in concentration camps whether by disease, starvation, or murder. Numbers, just numbers. Two million. The number of people killed by the Einsatzgruppen. These special duty troops were assigned to German army units that were invading the Soviet Union. They had the task of rounding up Jews and killing them. The victims were put on trucks, driven to remote areas and killed by carbon monoxide poisoning by allowing the exhaust of the trucks to go into the area of the trucks were the Jews were held or shot into ravines with graves dug by the victims before their deaths. This method was proven to be not efficient enough for the Germans who later developed the mass murder system of gassing Jews in concentration camps. Numbers, just numbers. Eight hundred thousand and seventy Jews were killed at Treblinka using a staff of just 150 people. Numbers, just numbers. One hundred thousand. The number of Jews that died on death marches. Half starved people were forced to march long distances to get to slave labor or extermination camps. Those who faltered were shot on site. Numbers, just numbers. In Birkenau, twenty thousand Poles, nineteen thousand Gypsies and twelve thousand Russian prisoners of war were murdered. Numbers, just numbers. Seven thousand. The number of Danish Jews saved from extinction by the Danish Resistance. Through the efforts of the Danish Resistance, virtually all the Jews of Denmark were allowed to escape to Sweden, which was a neutral country during the Second World War. The Danish people never looked at their Jewish countrymen as Jews but as Danish citizens, entitled to all the rights that Christians enjoyed.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 000EK0I www.westmarionba.com 16 ~ Friday, April 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com commemorated in a special exhibit at Israels monument and museum to Righteous Gentiles, Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Numbers, just numbers. Six thousand. The number of people that could be gassed at Auschwitz daily. It took just 20 minutes to do this using a poison gas called Zyclon B, originally developed for use as a pesticide. Numbers, just numbers. One thousand, the number of concentration camps ordered built by Hitler. Combining centuries of anti-Semitism with racist propaganda, he was able to rationalize his diabolical scheme to kill all the Jews of Europe to the German people. And while the German citizens of the towns where the camps were located either knew or suspected or feigned blissful ignorance of the goings on, when the camps were liberated, these citizens were forced to pay witness to the inhumane acts of the Nazis by touring the crematoria and barracks where the Jews were held captive. Many Germans openly wept at what their countrymen had done. Numbers, just numbers. Fourteen. On the 20th of January, 1942, fourteen highranking Nazi officials gathered at the German resort town of Wannsee to discuss the Final Solution to the Jewish problem. This amounted to the mass murder of the Jews of Europe with Adolph Eichmann at its head. The grand architect of the Final Solution was captured by the Israelis and hung after a trial in Israel in 1962. Numbers, just a solitary number. Only one. One person can change the world for good or evil. Hitler will go down in history as the perpetrator of evil as the world as never known. From the medical experiments done on inmates to the cruel and inhumane concentration camps to the millions of people Jews and non-Jews the Nazis murdered, his name will be remembered among the evil, worse than the Pharaoh that enslaved the ancient Israelites, worse than Haman who had plans to murder the Jews of ancient Persia, or the Babylonians who destroyed the first Temple, or the Romans who destroyed the second to the Inquisition, pogroms and all atrocities in-between, none of these compared to what would be known as The Holocaust. Numbers, a placeholder known as zero. Nothing, nada, rien, niets, niente, nichts. The miles of track that led to concentration camps bombed by the Allies. Though what the Nazis were doing was known to the Allies, it was believed bombing the tracks to the camps would claim too many lives. Holocaust survivor and activist, Elie Weisel, has often commented about this decision. Numbers, only numbers. Yom HaShoah or Holocaust Memorial Day occurs this year on the 7th of April.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 000EK0I www.westmarionba.com 16 ~ Friday, April 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com commemorated in a special exhibit at Israels monument and museum to Righteous Gentiles, Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Numbers, just numbers. Six thousand. The number of people that could be gassed at Auschwitz daily. It took just 20 minutes to do this using a poison gas called Zyclon B, originally developed for use as a pesticide. Numbers, just numbers. One thousand, the number of concentration camps ordered built by Hitler. Combining centuries of anti-Semitism with racist propaganda, he was able to rationalize his diabolical scheme to kill all the Jews of Europe to the German people. And while the German citizens of the towns where the camps were located either knew or suspected or feigned blissful ignorance of the goings on, when the camps were liberated, these citizens were forced to pay witness to the inhumane acts of the Nazis by touring the crematoria and barracks where the Jews were held captive. Many Germans openly wept at what their countrymen had done. Numbers, just numbers. Fourteen. On the 20th of January, 1942, fourteen highranking Nazi officials gathered at the German resort town of Wannsee to discuss the Final Solution to the Jewish problem. This amounted to the mass murder of the Jews of Europe with Adolph Eichmann at its head. The grand architect of the Final Solution was captured by the Israelis and hung after a trial in Israel in 1962. Numbers, just a solitary number. Only one. One person can change the world for good or evil. Hitler will go down in history as the perpetrator of evil as the world as never known. From the medical experiments done on inmates to the cruel and inhumane concentration camps to the millions of people Jews and non-Jews the Nazis murdered, his name will be remembered among the evil, worse than the Pharaoh that enslaved the ancient Israelites, worse than Haman who had plans to murder the Jews of ancient Persia, or the Babylonians who destroyed the first Temple, or the Romans who destroyed the second to the Inquisition, pogroms and all atrocities in-between, none of these compared to what would be known as The Holocaust. Numbers, a placeholder known as zero. Nothing, nada, rien, niets, niente, nichts. The miles of track that led to concentration camps bombed by the Allies. Though what the Nazis were doing was known to the Allies, it was believed bombing the tracks to the camps would claim too many lives. Holocaust survivor and activist, Elie Weisel, has often commented about this decision. Numbers, only numbers. Yom HaShoah or Holocaust Memorial Day occurs this year on the 7th of April.

Men, women and children. Killed by poison gas, bayonetting or gunshot because they were Jewish by birth. Numbers, just numbers. Three million. The number of Jews killed in concentration camps whether by disease, starvation, or murder. Numbers, just numbers. Two million. The number of people killed by the Einsatzgruppen. These special duty troops were assigned to German army units that were invading the Soviet Union. They had the task of rounding up Jews and killing them. The victims were put on trucks, driven to remote areas and killed by carbon monoxide poisoning by allowing the exhaust of the trucks to go into the area of the trucks were the Jews were held or shot into ravines with graves dug by the victims before their deaths. This method was proven to be not efficient enough for the Germans who later developed the mass murder system of gassing Jews in concentration camps. Numbers, just numbers. Eight hundred thousand and seventy Jews were killed at Treblinka using a staff of just 150 people. Numbers, just numbers. One hundred thousand. The number of Jews that died on death marches. Half starved people were forced to march long distances to get to slave labor or extermination camps. Those who faltered were shot on site. Numbers, just numbers. In Birkenau, twenty thousand Poles, nineteen thousand Gypsies and twelve thousand Russian prisoners of war were murdered. Numbers, just numbers. Seven thousand. The number of Danish Jews saved from extinction by the Danish Resistance. Through the efforts of the Danish Resistance, virtually all the Jews of Denmark were allowed to escape to Sweden, which was a neutral country during the Second World War.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, April 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I am not one to boast, at least not about myself unless someone is listening, but I do give some time to exercising the little gray cells in my mind. Many people, no names given, spend most of their time yapping while people like me spend their time napping. While napping, I am also exercising my mind. Some people exercise their mind by doing crossword puzzles. I tried this but every once in a while Ill think of the right word and then that word makes me think of something else and that makes me think of something else altogether and pretty soon Im off on one of my little mind trips. One thing about these little mind trips of mine, they do not cost very much and when I come to, I am quite refreshed. One danger about my little mind trips is that sometimes I am not alone when I am tripping out. This can be quite dangerous to my health. Last week, for example, I was driving across town and happened to engage in one of my little mind trips. It must have been a good one because I was thoroughly enjoying my trip and then I began to hear in the background a variety of words that did not seem connected nor did they make sense. These words did not have anything whatsoever to do with the little trip I was on at the time. Then the words started to fall into some kind of an order. Are... You... Listening... To... What... Im... Saying? At first, they did not seem connected and to be truthful it rather upset me because these words were interrupting a very nice mind trip I was on at the time. I hate it when I am interrupted by such nonsense. For some reason I happened to glance over to At this time of year, Ive got Easter on my mind my right and was shocked to discover that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was sitting in the passenger seat. At first, I thought I was hallucinating. However, she was looking back at me! I stared at her for a minute and then demanded, What are you doing in my car? She gave me one of those looks indicating I was in serious trouble. Then it dawned on me. We were going across town to go shopping. For some reason I had tuned everything out and slipped into a wonderful mind trip. Well, for the rest of the trip I was listening to a voice but that voice was not in my head; it was in my ears. Both of them. I had to leave my little mind trip for another occasion when I was by myself. I must confess that when I get on one of those mind trips of mine I lose sense of everything around me. I have a very active mind; of course, my wife says I have a very active imagination. I am not sure the difference, and I am not about to ask her, either. Some mysteries in life should be just that. A mystery. One mind trip that I get on to about this time a year is Easter. Lately I have had Easter on my mind. I know the word Easter, is not a very politically correct word today. But then I am not running for politics, in fact, I am running away from politics as much as possible. I like the word Easter. In some places, they are changing the Easter Bunny to the Spring Bunny and the Easter Egg Hunt to the Spring Egg Hunt. This is supposed to be more PC tolerable. After all, it is important that we should be PC in everything we do. Those people who object to the word Easter, I wonder if they really know where it came from. To some the Easter Bunny has some kind of a religious connotation. Personally, I never discovered what denomination the Easter Bunny is a member of. Where does the Easter Bunny attend church? The First Church of the Easter Egg Hunt? It has become a popular thing not to tolerate religion in our country. Well, let me correct that. We tolerate all religions except Christianity. It is too bad the people who cannot tolerate Christianity are unable to read. I think it is sad this generation is not able to read anymore, because if they were, they might read some of the history of this country and discover it was founded on Christian principles. Imagine that! I can understand why people are confused about Easter with the Easter Bunny and the Easter Egg. Most are confused about how the Easter Bunny can lay Easter Eggs. They are only familiar with Bugs Bunny and everybody knows he cannot lay an egg. So, where do these mysterious Easter Eggs come from? Laying all that nonsense aside, and that is all it is, Easter has some very wonderful memories for me. Say what they will, nothing they say can undermine the wonderful thoughts I have about Easter. I like what the apostle Paul says, For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV). The songwriter was right when he said, Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Read the classifieds T his Easter, after walking a neighbors dog I came upon an interesting sight. There on some of the lawns, were colored Easter eggs. Now that isnt really so unusual, but what was, is there was an, (dare I say) Easter Bunny hopping along at a good clip in the yard across the street. I blinked, to be sure I wasnt seeing things, and yet, there it was again. When I got to my lawn, there on the grass were two eggs. One was yellow, the other was green! I was very surprised, and happy to see that such wonderful things can still happen on Easter day! What a strange Easter morning that was! ShuffleboardEd Durham says that the troops are increasing, but we can still use a few more players for our games on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6:30. Ive even gotten addicted, which is easy to do! Its fun, its great exercise, and the people who play are very helpful and silly at times. It doesnt cost anything to come out and try it! By the way, Paul Roy is waxing up those babies so the slide as though they are on ice. Wow!Bratwurst roastOn April 14, we are having out second roast. There is a sign up sheet in the Clubhouse. You can bring a side dish, and the brats, drinks and eating plates and utensils are provided. Its a $3 charge to have a great time, and listen to entertainment. Womens PokerToday, I stopped by the Clubhouse to meet with the women that play poker on Mondays at 12:30. What a terrific bunch of gals. They were munching on snacks, telling jokes and having a wonderful time. They said its a perfect time to socialize and meet new people in the neighborhood. It looks like Ill be playing along with them next week. What a super warm weather activity during the hotter months! Why not join us? Strange happenings on Easter in Spruce Creek North Person of interest Ray, from the Clubhouse does a terrific job of keeping the place spotlessly clean, well maintained and comfortable. He is ready and willing to lend a hand when called upon for help. He and Dan keep our common area beautiful, all year long! Thank you very much, guys! Just a reminderOn April 17 there will be an open Board meeting at the Clubhouse. The guest speaker will be Laurie Cropley from Heirs-Baxley. She will be discussing complementary planning and is offering free refreshments to all who attend. The fun starts at 6:30. It sounds good to me! In my opinionWhen I go for my morning walk with Casey, my canine friend, I often notice how lovely our neighborhood looks. With the arrival of spring, the new buds coming out, and the freshly planted flowers, it looks spectacular. Taking pride in our homes and community counts a lot for what others think of where we live. So, Ive gotten out my gloves and trowel, and watch to see how soon my spring yard takes shape. We can all have an appealing neighborhood with just a little work. Thanks to all of you for keeping your yards and houses so beautiful.

Were looking for a few good men! No, were looking for more than a few good men. Were looking for all you good men out there who love singing and, believe it or not, can sing. There are many of you everywhere in Marion and the surrounding counties who are a might timid to go out in public and sing your little hearts out. Well fear not, we have the solution that will turn you into a roaring vocal volcano that the public will clamor for more and more. We are confidence builders. We were all just like you before we met the Barbershop Harmony Society. It didnt take long before we found out they liked to sing just as much as we did. Singing together helped us shed any fears we had about singing before the public. We know youre going to ask, Who are these guys? Are they some kind of miracle workers? No, theyre men just like you who work at their hobby and help each other rid themselves of any fears. Its a team effort that pays musical dividends. Ill bet your champing at the bit to find out just who these extraordinary men are that will go to any extreme to help their fellow man do well. We are The Big Sun Chorus from Ocala. We are a chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, a nonprofit organization. We are those men of distinction. We are The Barbershoppers. Our form and style of singing was born and bred in the good old US of A. Along with our brothers in nine affiliates around the globe. From Germany to New Zealand and from Canada to South Africa we form the largest male singing society in the world. Our chapter meets every Monday evening, (unless we get snowed out) at 6:30 p.m. at the Ocala West United Methodist Church located at 9330 S.W. 105th St. in Ocala. For further information, contact: Doug Oxford 352-527-6980. Thank you for your attention and remember, all we ask of you is to help us Keep the whole world singing (our motto). Peter Musella Big Sun ChorusAmendment 11 Im writing in response to the article in the Citizen concerning views on Amendment 11. Im one of the 61 one percent who voted for it. It was the right decision to make for our senior residents who meet the qualifications set forth in the amendment. Both articles agree that very few residents would be eligible under the guidelines set forth in the amendment, it seems to me its the loss of tax revenue that is the issue to those opposed to it and not the qualifications set forth to be eligible. If the county can find hundreds of thousands of dollars for tax relief to entice companies to locate here we can surly find some additional tax relief for those who meet the requirements of Amendment 11. We have to be a community that makes sure its most vulnerable members are cared for. These are the folks under the amendment who were here long before the commissioners or I arrived on the scene.

AFTER VISITING FRIENDS By Michael Hainey One thing Michael Hainey finally learned was that among newspapermen in the 1960s and s there was a code preventing them from ratting on a colleague. This formed the decadeslong obstacle against finding out the truth about his fathers untimely death. Hainey was only six when his Uncle Dick knocked on the door to tell the family that his father had collapsed and died alone in the street on Chicagos North Side. Being out until all hours was not unusual for the elder Hainey, the Night Slot Man at the Chicago Sun Times. And his widow never questions the circumstances. Over the years Michael was unable to extract any information from his silent, opaque mother. To his many inquiries she would strangely point to a scene in The Godfather in which Michael Corleones wife Kay asks him if he killed his sisters husband-to which Michael replies, Never ask me about my business, Kay. Restless Hainey is certain that his father did not just collapse and die in an unfamiliar part of town. And three obituaries had added after visiting friends. But who, Hainey wondered, were these friends who never showed up at the wake or identified themselves. Even the smallest clue drives Michael to pack his bags and fly to his fathers former co-workers wherever he finds them. But now aging they merely clam up and say, I dont remember anything about that night. The explanation when he finally unravels it is easy enough to understand but then armed with the truth the son cannot reveal it to his motherat least not right away. He finds the mother who did her best to raise her two sons by herself a lonely person given to playing Solitaire. He once asked her about her forRecommended: Beautifully written memoir Bookmark Pat Wellington mer friends and her answer was cryptic: Married women dont like single women. If one appears in the group, they cast her out. Ill never forget the women who cut me loose, she had said without lifting her eyes from the cards. What makes After Visiting Friends so magnetic is not the mystery of Bob Haineys death but rather the troubled skein of family relationships and the authors anxiety and frustration that becomes the readers as well. This is a beautifully written memoir that I recommend. Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Dr. Stubrud, Dr. Sands and Dr. Simpson Chiropractic, Massage, Acupuncture N 1/4 Mi.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, April 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com M arch Madness is almost over. The final game for mens NCAA basketball championship will be Monday. But then NBA playoffs start Saturday April 20 with the finals some time in June. With the ball bouncing down Pun Alley towards the basket, there is no doubt about todays theme. Obvious AnswerTaken away from the TV by a phone call in the last minutes of the playoff game, Elliot asked his wife to watch and tell him who won. A few minutes later, his wife walked into his study. What was the score? he asked, covering the mouthpiece. It was 88 to 86. Oh, man! Who won? She said, Eighty Eight did. Barnyard GameIt was the strangest thing the coach had ever seen in basketball. Every time a player pushed or traveled or hacked, the referee failed to assess a penalty. Instead, hed cup his hands to his mouth and shout out the name of a barnyard bird. The coach finally had enough of this and went over to the referee. What do you think youre doing? Their guy elbows one of mine, you yell, Chicken! They trip one of my boys, you shout, Hen. Whats going on here? What are you, stupid? the referee snapped. Im calling fowls. Chop Suey?Some years ago in the Olympics the U.S. basketball team easily beat the Chinese team. When asked about the win, the U.S. coach said, It was a lot of fun playing the Chinese, but an hour later, we wanted to play them again. Foul shots The sportscasters who specialize in basketball have decided to form a club. The name, of course, is Full Court Press. Finding sneakers for basketball centers is no small feat. Murphy wasnt only a star hoopster, he was the greatest Irish student in history. He got his degree in just three terms: Clintons, Bushs, and Obamas. The senator suggested erasing the national deficit by charging refs a dollar for every bad call. The coach walked into the dressing room between halves to bawl out his highly touted college team: You guys are playing like a bunch of amateurs. At the local gyms basketball court the sign read, Anyone caught hanging from the rim will be suspended. A true basketball fan is one who sits in the front row and after the game, says, What cheerleaders? An unbelievable story about a basketball player is obviously a tall tale. The Washington Bullets are changing their name because the owners no longer want their teams name to be associated with crime. So from now on the team will be known as the Bullets. Poor Rupert, the masseur for the professional basketball team, was fired because he rubbed the players the wrong way. The sign at the gym where the college was holding open tryouts for the basketball team read, if you can pass through this door without bending, dont. The ant basketball team made a vow, to get better, but didnt know how. No, it just wasnt right to be lacking in height. What they needed were tolerance, now. The basketball player sat on the sidelines and sketched turkeys. He was learning to draw fowls. Higher Education Lenny, the high-school basketball miracle was told he had to pass the simplest math quiz imaginable in order to be admitted to the university. All I want you to do is count to fifteen, the math teacher said. Lenny looked down at his hands, began to count, got to ten, then faltered. The teacher said, Come on, Lenny. Cant you count any higher? Thinking hard, he raised his hands above his head and said, One, two, three ... Shoot! The University coach gathered his team around him. OK guys, remember, this is basketball, a game to develop initiative, your ability to lead & individualization within a team effort. Now go out there and do exactly as I say.Tall taleA basketball coach told an associate of a wonderful dream he had had the previous night. I met this beautiful dame, he said. Her face was adorable, her figure breathtaking, and she promptly said she had always liked me more than a little, and wouldnt I come up to her room, where she had a surprise for me. Well, when I got there she introduced me to her kid brother. Hes 7 feet 6 inches tall. Boy, what a dream!Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, April 5, 2013 B ack around 1990, I had occasion to make several trips between the East Coast of Florida and Ohio. The fastest route was up Interstate 77. You traveled Interstate 95 to South Carolina, took Interstate 26 to Columbia, then picked up I-77 all the way into Ohio. As one who doesnt like heights, I always dreaded one stretch of I77, just north of the North Carolina-Virginia border. When you cross into Virginia, you promptly are greeted by the Appalachian Mountains, and you start going up. After the first exit, the climb is seven miles into the heavens. When you finally get to the next exit, its a place called Fancy Gap, and you can breathe a little easier. A little further up the road is a town aptly named Hillsville, and from there its clear sailing. For those who like such things, those first seven miles provide a spectacular view, especially to your right as youre going north. At night you can see pinpoints of light that are obviously miles away, and you can get the sensation that youre flying. One reason for that is that over the right side, theres a cliff, then nothing. To your left is the southbound traffic with the mountain next to the highway, so southbound really doesnt make you squeamish. The worst seven miles of my driving life came going up this mountain. I hit it on a foggy day with snow falling. I was driving a little car called a Chevette (hey, it was cheap) that didnt have much get-up-and-go. I was just hoping that one of those big trucks hadnt stopped in my lane, because I would be crushed like a bug. The southbound side never bothered me much. There was a guardrail and the northbound lanes to stop me on the left, and a mountain on my right. Here, I was going down seven miles. There were even two truck emergency lanes, where trucks could get off and go up in soft ground to stop if their brakes failed. But speed was always a factor on the downhill side and, unfortunately, thats what happened a few days ago, on Easter Sunday. About 95 vehicles were involved in a series of 17 accidents, tying up traffic in both lanes. At last report three people were killed. Officials said fog was a factor, but so was excessive speed. I could easily relate to that. The pictures from the scene were devastating, just a pile of rubble and burned out vehicles. The Galax Gazette, a sister newspaper of ours located near that Hillsville exit, did a nice timeline showing the accident and its aftermath. As for me, Ill probably never make that trip again. I cant see any reason to go up that way, and I dont need the anxiety of going up that mountain. When I drive, I do it to relax. Climbing the Appalachians in fog and snow doesnt do much to ease tension. For those of you who might have occasion to drive up that way, especially those who are leaving this month to spend the summer up north, please drive safely and respect this stretch of road. And when you come back south, take it easy and get here in one piece. About 95 vehicles had their trip interrupted on Easter Sunday. Please dont become another statistic on this road.

T heres a website called flightaware.com for those who like to pretend they are air traffic controllers. When you go to that site, on the left theres an airport tracker/info section. You can put in the name of the city you want to view or, if you know it, the threeletter airport code (thats the three letters you find on your luggage, JFK for Kennedy, LGA for LaGuardia, MCO for Orlando, TPA for Tampa, etc.). You will find yourself looking at the same radar that controllers see, just slightly time delayed for security. You can easily switch airports, and watch flights with the airline, the type of plane, the speed, origination and destination, and cruising altitude. But if you type in OCF, which is the code for Ocala, youll be asking, Where did everybody go? You will still be able to see the overflights, planes going to other airports that are flying over Ocala, but youll soon realize that none of them are coming here. Thats why were not particularly concerned that the FAA has decided to close the control tower, yes, the nice new control tower, at Ocala International Airport. The airport used to run just fine without the tower, and it will continue to do so. The FAA is closing down towers at many small airports across the nation, and Ocala is on the list. The tower is slated to shut down later this month. The reason, of course, is money. Were sure there are pilots who like having the control tower to help make sure that their airspace is clear. But with the land as flat as it is around here, visual landings are much easier than, say, Atlanta or Denver, places with mountains in the area. So dont worry. Its not likely that planes will be dropping on our houses and streets because of the lack of an operational control tower. Now, what do they do with that tower thats sitting out there. Maybe it can be a tourist attraction. Hey everybody, come out and pretend youre guiding planes to landings. Or you can be a ground controller, steering all those planes around the tarmac. Maybe they can even put a computer with flightaware.com in there, to simulate the real thing. Apparently thats as close as were going to get around here for a while. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Closing of tower not a big deal Crash brings back some memories READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The Korean War, the forgotten warWhile driving in the car today, I had on a talk radio station. They were discussing the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Primarily talking about WWII veterans numbers diminishing, but they also commented, there are the Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans still holding forth. Then there was a question called in about Korean war veterans, and the commentator said, Oh yes theres some of those guys left and theyre getting into their 80s now. Being a Korean war veteran, that stung pretty deep. After all there are a lot of 20 year veterans who were never in a war, and did really nothing but fill a spot and draw a pay. I guess a little history lesson is in order. At the time of the Korean War, it was called a police action. The pilots and crewmen we lost in air combat would beg to differ with you. Oh yes, I was aboard the aircraft carrier, USS Leyte CV-32. The Leyte was honored to have the first African-American pilot, Ensign Jesse L. Brown, in the Navy, aboard the Leyte, serving in VF-32, flying F4U Corsairs. Unfortunately Ensign Brown, was killed in combat serving his country. He was shot down by ground fire over Hangaru-ri, North Korea on December 4, 1950, and received the Distinguished Flying Cross. The Korean War has never ended with a peace treaty or surrender, in fact the war is still active, 63 years old this year In fact, North Korea, just two weeks ago, canceled the armistice they signed in July of 1953. So you see, the Korean war is officially still active after 63 years. If you need proof, we still have American troops in South Korea and the Demilitarized Zone. The Afghanistan war is only 10 years old. Ho Hum! The Korean War fighting lasted only three years, from July 1950 to July 1953, and 55,000 service men lost their lives, and hundreds of thousands wounded. I guess theres a great many people who just dont get it, that the Korean War was horrible, 55,000 men lost their lives. Oh yes, no Honor Flights for us. Then if that wasnt bad enough, the USS Leyte suffered two severe explosions during re-outfitting in the Boston Naval Yard, South Annex, on October 16, 1953. Thirty seven men, 32 Navy men, and five civilian workers were killed, and 40 more wounded. Well folks, I could write a full newspaper page of information regarding the Korean War, and my ship, the USS Leyte CV-32, in particular, but it would never be printed. Remember, the Koran war is the Forgotten War. Mr. Sheldon Richman, of the Future of Freedom Foundation said, the war in Afghanistan is the longest war in our history. He should brush up on our history, as hes wrong.. Oh yes, if the unstable young 26 year old leader of North Korea has his way, the Korean War could be the Second War, using nuclear weapons. Think on that for a while. At least the Korean War wasnt the drug war. Bill Ford Oak RunGuns dont kill people? 1 am tired of hearing the oversimplified bumper sticker slogan guns dont kill people ... people kill people. For those of you who dont see the obvious irrelelevance of this statement allow me to make my point. Hammers dont drive nails....people drive nails. If you needed to drive a nail, what tool would you reach for? A few of us might grab a rock or a heavy wrench but the vast majority (100% statistically) of nails are driven by hammers because hammers really do drive nails. The exact same logic applies to guns. If you wanted to kill as many people as possible and as quickly as possible, what tool would you reach for? Lets get real here. Joe Peck Dunnelion LETTERS TO THE EDITOR What can it hurt?If you want to influence the future of America and its people, simply ask God for His help. Its certainly beneficial to be mindful of the issues that confront America. Discussing the issues with your family, friends, neighbors, clerics, and politicians helps considerably. Reading a newspapers opinion page also helps. Just remember that opinions are just that opinions. They dont necessarily reflect reality. The most important thing you can do, however, is to pray to God for His influence. You must not give God your version of how to resolve an issue, simply give Him your thanks for His bountiful blessings, express your thoughts and feelings on the issue, and ask for His intervention. If your requests are righteous and arent contrary to Gods tenets, he will act on them. So offer your prayers for Americas future ... or, for that matter, for almost any reason. What can it hurt? Youll be helping America and yourself, and you will realize a personal satisfaction as well. Joe OHara Ocala Read the classifieds More letters on Page 10 157,500 employees in 1,070 locations in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, and Tennessee, Publix customers and associates raised an incredible $4.5 million in 2012 and $43 million since 1995 to help give all babies a healthy start and educate moms-to-be about the importance of taking the B vitamin folic acid. As we celebrate our 75th anniversary, we honor Publix as one of our most valued partners. Their corporate commitment to the community is matched by their associates enthusiasm for this campaign, said Julie Laird, Regional Vice President, March of Dimes.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 More on Page 6 BY RICH LOWRY The nation's elementary schools are overrun by small-minded and unreasonable people, prone to hysterics, who can't distinguish between make-believe and reality. They are called school administrators. In the wake of the Newtown, Conn., massacre, they have been punishing little children for making gunlike gestures with their fingers and other harmless horseplay. The people who run our schools must have been too busy brushing up on their "zero tolerance" policies to notice that Newtown was perpetrated with an AR-15, not with a toy or with a finger. We expect 5-year-olds to be childish. What's the excuse for the people running our schools? Five-year-old Joseph Cruz brandished a gun made out of Legos in his day-care program while, in the words of the Barnstable Public School District in Hyannis, Mass., "simulating the sound of gunfire." For a layman, that's called saying "pow." Cruz got a stiff warning for "using daycare toys inappropriately." A 5-year-old girl was suspended from kindergarten at Mount Carmel Area Elementary School in Northumberland County, Pa., after "threatening" to shoot classmates with her pink Hello Kitty gun that fires soapy bubbles. A mandatory psychological evaluation found, according to a news report, "that the girl did not represent any threat to others." Whew. White Marsh Elementary in Maryland suspended two first-graders for playing cops and robbers on the playground. In true 21st-century fashion, the school board said it was forbidden from giving out more information "due to confidentially requirements under the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)." An 8-year-old in Prince William County, Va., was suspended for firing back with an imaginary gun after a friend shot him with an imaginary bow and arrow. Evidently, nothing happened to the other kid. This points to a disturbing "bow and arrow" loophole that could conceivably accommodate everything from imaginary poison darts to make-believe medieval siege weapons. The Al Capone of the zero-tolerance offenders is the daring second-grader in Anne Arundel County, Md., who chewed his strawberry breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun and then brazenly pointed it at a classmate. Park Elementary school suspended him for two days. Who defends this foolish lack of proportion? The American Association of School Administrators. Its executive director, Dan Domenech, told USA Today: "Parents have to be aware that talking about guns or using your fingers to point like a gun is no longer tolerable or prudent." Why, pray tell? School shooters tend to be disturbed young men. In no case has a shooter ever been an adorable 5-yearold child. In the grips of a strange mania, school administrators believe that any symbolic representation of a gun, no matter how innocent, is all but indistinguishable from a real gun. This is not a mistake that gun owners make. The fake-finger gun doesn't do much for the average sportsman. It can't bring down a deer, and doesn't exactly light up the gun range. No matter. We don't have common sense; we have rules. We don't have judgment; we have bureaucratic procedure. Too often, our grown-ups are the ones desperately in need of adult supervision.Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.(c) 2013 by King Features Synd., Inc. GUEST COMMENTARIES Elementary school administrators have rules, no common sense BY SHELDON RICHMAN Its hard to believe that in the 21st century, educated people believe the government can produce real wealth by creating money. Its especially ironic that the main preachers of this superstition fancy themselves progressives and are the first to accuse their opponents of being against science. What could be more antiscience than the alchemic proposal to create wealth by having the Federal Reserve make entries in a digital ledger? Its more absurd than alchemy: Alchemists claimed they could turn base metals into gold. Inflationists require only thin air. The commonsense reaction is: Balderdash! So it takes real devotion to the power of government to embrace such a ridiculous idea. Consider Chris Hayes, the MSNBC host. Last Saturday on his program, Up, he said this in introducing a segment on the proposal that the Treasury mint a $1 trillion coin to get around its debt limit: The simple truth is it [the government) creates money simply out of thin air. Someone at the Federal Reserve punches in a number on a spreadsheet and voila! more money. While there are rules that guide legal tender, at base, what makes money valuable is simply social convention, a norm. We all agree its valuable, so its valuable. The genius of the trillion dollar coin isnt just that it provides some much needed leverage against a foe unencumbered by any sense of propriety, it also illustrates the uncomfortable, foundational reality of modern capitalism: money is nothing more than a shared illusion. Its a kind of magic. But is it good magic or bad magic? At least he admits that in this case he believes in magic. The value of money is a convention, a norm, a shared illusion? Did society agree that the dollar should lose 95 percent of its purchasing power since the Federal Reserve opened its doors nearly a hundred years ago? This view is as unscientific as one can imagine. The science it rejects is economics. Beginning with Adam Smith (actually well before that), the most enlightened thinkers understood that economic regularities exist apart from human will; they are forces, or laws, generated by intrinsic features of human action, particularly exchange. It is not a social convention that, for example, when the supply of a good increases relative to demand (other things equal), the price falls, and vice versa. Nor is it a convention that when demand for a good rises relative to supply (other things equal), the price increases. It is the result of the logic of choice, which has been the mainline of economic thinking for hundreds of Progressives in American believe in money magic PLEASESEERICHMAN PAGE26 000EBQZ LLC CARPET CARE C O M P L E T E C A R P E T C A R E C O M P L E T E C A R P E T C A R E COMPLETE CARPET CARE Lic & Ins Specializing in: Carpet Stretching Carpet Repair Specializing in: Carpet Stretching Carpet Repair C ARPET & U PHOLSTERY C LEANING 352-282-1480 cell 352-547-1636 office Free In Home Estimates Lifetime Warranty 5 R OOMS & H ALLWAY $ 79 95 LAWN SERVICE 000EGK2 CROUCH Lawn Service No Wait at Great Rates Hedging and Weed Pulling up to 3 hrs $115 352-804-5630 000EE5F IRRIGATION LLC.

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, are the foundations of social media. Together, these sites have made it possible for social networking to really take hold and take off. As with any popular platform, you start to see trends that are evident across all networks. One of the most popular trends is the use of the hashtag (#). But what exactly is it, and can your company use it? The hashtag (#), commonly referred to on telephone systems as the pound key, is a character first used by users of the popular social network Twitter. According to the help forum on Twitter, It is used to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet. It was created organically by Twitter users as a way to categorize messages. Look at nearly any Twitter message and there will usually be hashtags attached. If you were to search for the term e.g., #Cloudbackup on Twitter, you would get a list of all tweets that have mentioned the above example. When Twitter talks about a trending topic it means a subject that has become popular. This way of categorization has become so popular amongst Twitter users that its starting to spill over onto the other networks. Instagram for instance has given members the ability to add hashtags to pictures, so that they can be added to groups which can subsequently be searched for. Even Google has gotten in on the act, with Google+ and YouTube both supporting this system. With Facebook, the hashtag has come to give context to a status. Youve probably seen some status updates such as: I love Mondays #sarcasm #bored. This should be read with a sarcastic and slightly bored tone. Because of the usefulness of the hashtag, some users have become overzealous in their use. Reading a Tweet that says #Friday is #awesome, here comes a #fun #weekend. just looks unprofessional and could put off followers. While effective, there are some basic rules you should follow to help get the most out of your hashtags. Heres four. No long hashtags. Hashtags are meant to be short and associated with one word. Dont make the mistake of adding more than about two words together, as the likelihood of users finding the tag will decrease. e.g., #Cloudservicesareawesome should be avoided, use #cloudservices instead. Minimize their use. It can be tempting to hashtag every keyword in messages, however makes them look weird, while decreasing their readability. It is a good idea to limit use to one or two per message. The hashtag is special. Dont use it for everyday words. Instead use it for product names, or a special part of the announcement. Remember that you dont have to use hashtags in every message. Check out Samsung Mobiles Twitter feed to see a good example of proper use. Use a unique hashtag. If you can, try to use a unique hashtag, something that followers will be able to associate and relate to you. The key here is that when its used, the user is referred to you, and only you. Do a quick search on Twitter for the hashtag you would like to use, to ensure its not taken. Many companies will shorten their tag to initials or a shorter term, which is perfectly acceptable. Hashtags, when used correctly, can be a great way to build brand identity and increase social media presence.

Our dual enrollment programs allow high school students to obtain college credit prior to graduation. Serving our students through dual enrollment is a testament to the strength of Floridas seamless education system. All 28 FCS institutions have dual enrollment programs that enrolled 50,054 students in 2011-12. The FCS is the states leading provider of dual enrollment opportunities, serving 83 percent of dual enrollment students. Through the grant, all FCS institutions will have access to the Florida Dual Enrollment Springboard. The College of Central Florida will develop the springboard through collaboration with the Florida Department of Education, Florida colleges and school districts to include a comprehensive website, two sets of professional development tutorials and resources, and a student success preparation kit. The springboard will be available later this year. The Florida Dual Enrollment Springboard and legislative recognition of the cost and value of dual enrollments will go a long way toward greater acceleration of student learning and degree completions in Florida, said Dr. Jim Henningsen, College of Central Florida president. We see dual enrollment as an important part of our overall efforts to achieve more for students and for Florida. The Florida Dual Enrollment Springboard will be an invaluable tool for educators and administrators in Floridas public schools and the Florida College System, said Florida College System Chancellor Randy Hanna. Floridas students will benefit from increased collaboration and support services that will improve their success in dual enrollment courses. I commend the College of Central Florida on its strong proposal and look forward to the statewide release of the springboard.

Turn off your homes irrigation system and only water as needed; save up to 2,000 gallons each time a watering day is skipped. Dont leave sprinklers unattended. Use a kitchen timer to remind yourself to turn sprinklers off. Use a hose with a shutoff nozzle when washing the car to save around 40 gallons per wash. Consider installing a rain barrel with a drip irrigation system for watering your landscaping. Rainwater is free and better for your plants because it doesnt contain hard minerals. Leaks are the biggest water waster, both inside and outside of your home. You can use your water meter to check for leaks. Turn off all faucets and water-using appliances and make sure no one uses water during the testing period. Remember to wait for the hot water heater and ice cube makers to refill and for regeneration of water softeners. Go to your water meter and record the current reading. Wait 30 minutes. (Remember: no water should be used during this period.) Read the meter again. If the reading has changed, you have a leak.

Governor Rick Scott said, A great education is critical to providing students job opportunities after graduation, which is why my budget invests $1.1 billion for Florida colleges. Its through innovations like the $10K Degree Challenge that the Florida College System helps Florida families pursue their dreams. View the Governors proclamation about FCS Month. The primary mission of the FCS is to provide access to high-quality affordable education that prepares students for continued education or jobs. Floridas 28 colleges operate 181 sites throughout the state and serve nearly a million Floridians. Colleges offer a dyCommunity College Month observed namic array of educational opportunities, including adult education, developmental education, vocational certificates, associate and baccalaureate degrees, and community education. Here are a few FCS highlights: The FCS is proud to serve all students: 63 percent are part-time, 55 percent are minority, 59 percent are female, and the average student age is 26. Two-thirds of high school graduates enrolling in postsecondary education in Florida enroll in the FCS. Through Floridas strong 2+2 articulation system, FCS associate in arts graduates are guaranteed admission into one of the great state universities in Florida. Fiftyfour percent of juniors and seniors in state universities transferred from the FCS. One-hundred percent of FCS institutions that offer bachelors degrees have accepted Governor Rick Scotts challenge to work to develop bachelors degrees costing students no more than $10,000. Eighty-eight percent of FCS graduates are continuing their education or employed within one year of graduation. The average starting salary of FCS bachelors degree graduates is $46,186. The average starting salary of FCS associate in science degree graduates is $44,095. years, Peter Boettke writes in his new book, Living Economics. To hold otherwise is to believe that a society could have generated other norms, under which, say, a fall in supply relative to demand caused prices to drop, or a fall in demand relative to supply caused prices to rise. But it is not by social agreement that those things never happen. As the great Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises wrote, The development of economics did more to transform human thinking than any other scientific theory before or since. Up to that time it had been believed that no bounds other than those drawn by the laws of nature circumscribed the path of acting man. It was not known that there is still something more that sets a limit to political power beyond which it cannot go. Now it was learned that in the social realm too there is something operative which power and force are unable to alter and to which they must adjust themselves if they hope to achieve success, in precisely the same way as they must take into account the laws of nature. Disbelief in economic laws that operate independently of human will is the sign of a primitive mind. No one has a good excuse for believing that government can create real wealth simply by creating money. The value of money is not determined by social convention. It is determined by supply and demand. When the central bank creates money, it doesnt create useful goods. It may merely shift purchasing power from the people to the Treasury or to special interests. That is, inflation is a form of theft.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) in Fairfax, Va. RICHMAN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 24 Play scheduled at West PortMarion County Center for the Arts Omega Theatre Company will present the musical Smile April 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m. and April 21 at 2 p.m. at the West Port High School Performing Arts Center, located at 3733 S.W. 80th Ave. in Ocala. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and senior citizens. Tickets will be available at the door or in advance at www.westportwolfpack.org. With music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Howard Ashman, Smile was inspired by the 1975 film of the same name, directed by Michael Ritchie with a screenplay by Jerry Belson. The musical depicts the offstage difficulties of the fictitious 1985 California Young American Miss beauty pageant held in Santa Rosa, California. Students Amanda Glenn and Savannah Hirst portray two contestants who befriend each other throughout the pageant. Krystal Ortega plays the pageant coordinator, Brenda DiCarlo Freelander, and Keaton Long takes on the role of her beleaguered husband, Big Bob Freelander. Students in the musical theatre program round out the large ensemble cast.

Food vendors were available also. Some of the other activities were pony rides, face painting, egg coloring, and swings on a well padded surface. The egg hunt for different age levels was held across the street from the other activities. A popular activity was coloring eggs. The children did not know where to start as there were several colors available.

Our dual enrollment programs allow high school students to obtain college credit prior to graduation. Serving our students through dual enrollment is a testament to the strength of Floridas seamless education system. All 28 FCS institutions have dual enrollment programs that enrolled 50,054 students in 2011-12. The FCS is the states leading provider of dual enrollment opportunities, serving 83 percent of dual enrollment students. Through the grant, all FCS institutions will have access to the Florida Dual Enrollment Springboard. The College of Central Florida will develop the springboard through collaboration with the Florida Department of Education, Florida colleges and school districts to include a comprehensive website, two sets of professional development tutorials and resources, and a student success preparation kit. The springboard will be available later this year. The Florida Dual Enrollment Springboard and legislative recognition of the cost and value of dual enrollments will go a long way toward greater acceleration of student learning and degree completions in Florida, said Dr. Jim Henningsen, College of Central Florida president. We see dual enrollment as an important part of our overall efforts to achieve more for students and for Florida. The Florida Dual Enrollment Springboard will be an invaluable tool for educators and administrators in Floridas public schools and the Florida College System, said Florida College System Chancellor Randy Hanna. Floridas students will benefit from increased collaboration and support services that will improve their success in dual enrollment courses. I commend the College of Central Florida on its strong proposal and look forward to the statewide release of the springboard. DUALCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Install high-efficiency showerheads, faucets and toilets. OutdoorCheck your homes irrigation system for leaks to save up to 6,300 gallons of water per month. Turn off your homes irrigation system and only water as needed; save up to 2,000 gallons each time a watering day is skipped. Dont leave sprinklers unattended. Use a kitchen timer to remind yourself to turn sprinklers off. Use a hose with a shutoff nozzle when washing the car to save around 40 gallons per wash. Consider installing a rain barrel with a drip irrigation system for watering your landscaping. Rainwater is free and better for your plants because it doesnt contain hard minerals. Leaks are the biggest water waster, both inside and outside of your home. You can use your water meter to check for leaks. Turn off all faucets and water-using appliances and make sure no one uses water during the testing period. Remember to wait for the hot water heater and ice cube makers to refill and for regeneration of water softeners. Go to your water meter and record the current reading. Wait 30 minutes. (Remember: no water should be used during this period.) Read the meter again. If the reading has changed, you have a leak.

Governor Rick Scott said, A great education is critical to providing students job opportunities after graduation, which is why my budget invests $1.1 billion for Florida colleges. Its through innovations like the $10K Degree Challenge that the Florida College System helps Florida families pursue their dreams. View the Governors proclamation about FCS Month. The primary mission of the FCS is to provide access to high-quality affordable education that prepares students for continued education or jobs. Floridas 28 colleges operate 181 sites throughout the state and serve nearly a million Floridians. Colleges offer a dyCommunity College Month observed namic array of educational opportunities, including adult education, developmental education, vocational certificates, associate and baccalaureate degrees, and community education. Here are a few FCS highlights: The FCS is proud to serve all students: 63 percent are part-time, 55 percent are minority, 59 percent are female, and the average student age is 26. Two-thirds of high school graduates enrolling in postsecondary education in Florida enroll in the FCS. Through Floridas strong 2+2 articulation system, FCS associate in arts graduates are guaranteed admission into one of the great state universities in Florida. Fiftyfour percent of juniors and seniors in state universities transferred from the FCS. One-hundred percent of FCS institutions that offer bachelors degrees have accepted Governor Rick Scotts challenge to work to develop bachelors degrees costing students no more than $10,000. Eighty-eight percent of FCS graduates are continuing their education or employed within one year of graduation. The average starting salary of FCS bachelors degree graduates is $46,186. The average starting salary of FCS associate in science degree graduates is $44,095. years, Peter Boettke writes in his new book, Living Economics. To hold otherwise is to believe that a society could have generated other norms, under which, say, a fall in supply relative to demand caused prices to drop, or a fall in demand relative to supply caused prices to rise. But it is not by social agreement that those things never happen. As the great Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises wrote, The development of economics did more to transform human thinking than any other scientific theory before or since. Up to that time it had been believed that no bounds other than those drawn by the laws of nature circumscribed the path of acting man. It was not known that there is still something more that sets a limit to political power beyond which it cannot go. Now it was learned that in the social realm too there is something operative which power and force are unable to alter and to which they must adjust themselves if they hope to achieve success, in precisely the same way as they must take into account the laws of nature. Disbelief in economic laws that operate independently of human will is the sign of a primitive mind. No one has a good excuse for believing that government can create real wealth simply by creating money. The value of money is not determined by social convention. It is determined by supply and demand. When the central bank creates money, it doesnt create useful goods. It may merely shift purchasing power from the people to the Treasury or to special interests. That is, inflation is a form of theft.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) in Fairfax, Va.

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, are the foundations of social media. Together, these sites have made it possible for social networking to really take hold and take off. As with any popular platform, you start to see trends that are evident across all networks. One of the most popular trends is the use of the hashtag (#). But what exactly is it, and can your company use it? The hashtag (#), commonly referred to on telephone systems as the pound key, is a character first used by users of the popular social network Twitter. According to the help forum on Twitter, It is used to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet. It was created organically by Twitter users as a way to categorize messages. Look at nearly any Twitter message and there will usually be hashtags attached. If you were to search for the term e.g., #Cloudbackup on Twitter, you would get a list of all tweets that have mentioned the above example. When Twitter talks about a trending topic it means a subject that has become popular. This way of categorization has become so popular amongst Twitter users that its starting to spill over onto the other networks. Instagram for instance has given members the ability to add hashtags to pictures, so that they can be added to groups which can subsequently be searched for. Even Google has gotten in on the act, with Google+ and YouTube both supporting this system. With Facebook, the hashtag has come to give context to a status. Youve probably seen some status updates such as: I love Mondays #sarcasm #bored. This should be read with a sarcastic and slightly bored tone. Because of the usefulness of the hashtag, some users have become overzealous in their use. Reading a Tweet that says #Friday is #awesome, here comes a #fun #weekend. just looks unprofessional and could put off followers. While effective, there are some basic rules you should follow to help get the most out of your hashtags. Heres four. No long hashtags. Hashtags are meant to be short and associated with one word. Dont make the mistake of adding more than about two words together, as the likelihood of users finding the tag will decrease. e.g., #Cloudservicesareawesome should be avoided, use #cloudservices instead. Minimize their use. It can be tempting to hashtag every keyword in messages, however makes them look weird, while decreasing their readability. It is a good idea to limit use to one or two per message. The hashtag is special. Dont use it for everyday words. Instead use it for product names, or a special part of the announcement. Remember that you dont have to use hashtags in every message. Check out Samsung Mobiles Twitter feed to see a good example of proper use. Use a unique hashtag. If you can, try to use a unique hashtag, something that followers will be able to associate and relate to you. The key here is that when its used, the user is referred to you, and only you. Do a quick search on Twitter for the hashtag you would like to use, to ensure its not taken. Many companies will shorten their tag to initials or a shorter term, which is perfectly acceptable. Hashtags, when used correctly, can be a great way to build brand identity and increase social media presence.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 More on Page 6 BY RICH LOWRY The nation's elementary schools are overrun by small-minded and unreasonable people, prone to hysterics, who can't distinguish between make-believe and reality. They are called school administrators. In the wake of the Newtown, Conn., massacre, they have been punishing little children for making gunlike gestures with their fingers and other harmless horseplay. The people who run our schools must have been too busy brushing up on their "zero tolerance" policies to notice that Newtown was perpetrated with an AR-15, not with a toy or with a finger. We expect 5-year-olds to be childish. What's the excuse for the people running our schools? Five-year-old Joseph Cruz brandished a gun made out of Legos in his day-care program while, in the words of the Barnstable Public School District in Hyannis, Mass., "simulating the sound of gunfire." For a layman, that's called saying "pow." Cruz got a stiff warning for "using daycare toys inappropriately." A 5-year-old girl was suspended from kindergarten at Mount Carmel Area Elementary School in Northumberland County, Pa., after "threatening" to shoot classmates with her pink Hello Kitty gun that fires soapy bubbles. A mandatory psychological evaluation found, according to a news report, "that the girl did not represent any threat to others." Whew. White Marsh Elementary in Maryland suspended two first-graders for playing cops and robbers on the playground. In true 21st-century fashion, the school board said it was forbidden from giving out more information "due to confidentially requirements under the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)." An 8-year-old in Prince William County, Va., was suspended for firing back with an imaginary gun after a friend shot him with an imaginary bow and arrow. Evidently, nothing happened to the other kid. This points to a disturbing "bow and arrow" loophole that could conceivably accommodate everything from imaginary poison darts to make-believe medieval siege weapons. The Al Capone of the zero-tolerance offenders is the daring second-grader in Anne Arundel County, Md., who chewed his strawberry breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun and then brazenly pointed it at a classmate. Park Elementary school suspended him for two days. Who defends this foolish lack of proportion? The American Association of School Administrators. Its executive director, Dan Domenech, told USA Today: "Parents have to be aware that talking about guns or using your fingers to point like a gun is no longer tolerable or prudent." Why, pray tell? School shooters tend to be disturbed young men. In no case has a shooter ever been an adorable 5-yearold child. In the grips of a strange mania, school administrators believe that any symbolic representation of a gun, no matter how innocent, is all but indistinguishable from a real gun. This is not a mistake that gun owners make. The fake-finger gun doesn't do much for the average sportsman. It can't bring down a deer, and doesn't exactly light up the gun range. No matter. We don't have common sense; we have rules. We don't have judgment; we have bureaucratic procedure. Too often, our grown-ups are the ones desperately in need of adult supervision.Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.(c) 2013 by King Features Synd., Inc. GUEST COMMENTARIES Elementary school administrators have rules, no common sense BY SHELDON RICHMAN Its hard to believe that in the 21st century, educated people believe the government can produce real wealth by creating money. Its especially ironic that the main preachers of this superstition fancy themselves progressives and are the first to accuse their opponents of being against science. What could be more antiscience than the alchemic proposal to create wealth by having the Federal Reserve make entries in a digital ledger? Its more absurd than alchemy: Alchemists claimed they could turn base metals into gold. Inflationists require only thin air. The commonsense reaction is: Balderdash! So it takes real devotion to the power of government to embrace such a ridiculous idea. Consider Chris Hayes, the MSNBC host. Last Saturday on his program, Up, he said this in introducing a segment on the proposal that the Treasury mint a $1 trillion coin to get around its debt limit: The simple truth is it [the government) creates money simply out of thin air. Someone at the Federal Reserve punches in a number on a spreadsheet and voila! more money. While there are rules that guide legal tender, at base, what makes money valuable is simply social convention, a norm. We all agree its valuable, so its valuable. The genius of the trillion dollar coin isnt just that it provides some much needed leverage against a foe unencumbered by any sense of propriety, it also illustrates the uncomfortable, foundational reality of modern capitalism: money is nothing more than a shared illusion. Its a kind of magic. But is it good magic or bad magic? At least he admits that in this case he believes in magic. The value of money is a convention, a norm, a shared illusion? Did society agree that the dollar should lose 95 percent of its purchasing power since the Federal Reserve opened its doors nearly a hundred years ago? This view is as unscientific as one can imagine. The science it rejects is economics. Beginning with Adam Smith (actually well before that), the most enlightened thinkers understood that economic regularities exist apart from human will; they are forces, or laws, generated by intrinsic features of human action, particularly exchange. It is not a social convention that, for example, when the supply of a good increases relative to demand (other things equal), the price falls, and vice versa. Nor is it a convention that when demand for a good rises relative to supply (other things equal), the price increases. It is the result of the logic of choice, which has been the mainline of economic thinking for hundreds of Progressives in American believe in money magic PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE26 000EBQZ LLC CARPET CARE COMPLETE CARPET CARE COMPLETE CARPET CARE COMPLETE CARPET CARE Lic & Ins Specializing in: Carpet Stretching Carpet Repair Specializing in: Carpet Stretching Carpet Repair C ARPET & U PHOLSTERY C LEANING 352-282-1480 cell 352-547-1636 office Free In Home Estimates Lifetime Warranty 5 R OOMS & H ALLWAY $ 79 95 LAWN SERVICE 000EGK2 CROUCH Lawn Service No Wait at Great Rates Hedging and Weed Pulling up to 3 hrs $115 352-804-5630 000EE5F IRRIGATION LLC.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, April 5, 2013 Back around 1990, I had occasion to make several trips between the East Coast of Florida and Ohio. The fastest route was up Interstate 77. You traveled Interstate 95 to South Carolina, took Interstate 26 to Columbia, then picked up I-77 all the way into Ohio. As one who doesnt like heights, I always dreaded one stretch of I77, just north of the North Carolina-Virginia border. When you cross into Virginia, you promptly are greeted by the Appalachian Mountains, and you start going up. After the first exit, the climb is seven miles into the heavens. When you finally get to the next exit, its a place called Fancy Gap, and you can breathe a little easier. A little further up the road is a town aptly named Hillsville, and from there its clear sailing. For those who like such things, those first seven miles provide a spectacular view, especially to your right as youre going north. At night you can see pinpoints of light that are obviously miles away, and you can get the sensation that youre flying. One reason for that is that over the right side, theres a cliff, then nothing. To your left is the southbound traffic with the mountain next to the highway, so southbound really doesnt make you squeamish. The worst seven miles of my driving life came going up this mountain. I hit it on a foggy day with snow falling. I was driving a little car called a Chevette (hey, it was cheap) that didnt have much get-up-and-go. I was just hoping that one of those big trucks hadnt stopped in my lane, because I would be crushed like a bug. The southbound side never bothered me much. There was a guardrail and the northbound lanes to stop me on the left, and a mountain on my right. Here, I was going down seven miles. There were even two truck emergency lanes, where trucks could get off and go up in soft ground to stop if their brakes failed. But speed was always a factor on the downhill side and, unfortunately, thats what happened a few days ago, on Easter Sunday. About 95 vehicles were involved in a series of 17 accidents, tying up traffic in both lanes. At last report three people were killed. Officials said fog was a factor, but so was excessive speed. I could easily relate to that. The pictures from the scene were devastating, just a pile of rubble and burned out vehicles. The Galax Gazette, a sister newspaper of ours located near that Hillsville exit, did a nice timeline showing the accident and its aftermath. As for me, Ill probably never make that trip again. I cant see any reason to go up that way, and I dont need the anxiety of going up that mountain. When I drive, I do it to relax. Climbing the Appalachians in fog and snow doesnt do much to ease tension. For those of you who might have occasion to drive up that way, especially those who are leaving this month to spend the summer up north, please drive safely and respect this stretch of road. And when you come back south, take it easy and get here in one piece. About 95 vehicles had their trip interrupted on Easter Sunday. Please dont become another statistic on this road.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Theres a website called flightaware.com for those who like to pretend they are air traffic controllers. When you go to that site, on the left theres an airport tracker/info section. You can put in the name of the city you want to view or, if you know it, the threeletter airport code (thats the three letters you find on your luggage, JFK for Kennedy, LGA for LaGuardia, MCO for Orlando, TPA for Tampa, etc.). You will find yourself looking at the same radar that controllers see, just slightly time delayed for security. You can easily switch airports, and watch flights with the airline, the type of plane, the speed, origination and destination, and cruising altitude. But if you type in OCF, which is the code for Ocala, youll be asking, Where did everybody go? You will still be able to see the overflights, planes going to other airports that are flying over Ocala, but youll soon realize that none of them are coming here. Thats why were not particularly concerned that the FAA has decided to close the control tower, yes, the nice new control tower, at Ocala International Airport. The airport used to run just fine without the tower, and it will continue to do so. The FAA is closing down towers at many small airports across the nation, and Ocala is on the list. The tower is slated to shut down later this month. The reason, of course, is money. Were sure there are pilots who like having the control tower to help make sure that their airspace is clear. But with the land as flat as it is around here, visual landings are much easier than, say, Atlanta or Denver, places with mountains in the area. So dont worry. Its not likely that planes will be dropping on our houses and streets because of the lack of an operational control tower. Now, what do they do with that tower thats sitting out there. Maybe it can be a tourist attraction. Hey everybody, come out and pretend youre guiding planes to landings. Or you can be a ground controller, steering all those planes around the tarmac. Maybe they can even put a computer with flightaware.com in there, to simulate the real thing. Apparently thats as close as were going to get around here for a while. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Closing of tower not a big deal Crash brings back some memories READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The Korean War, the forgotten warWhile driving in the car today, I had on a talk radio station. They were discussing the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Primarily talking about WWII veterans numbers diminishing, but they also commented, there are the Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans still holding forth. Then there was a question called in about Korean war veterans, and the commentator said, Oh yes theres some of those guys left and theyre getting into their 80s now. Being a Korean war veteran, that stung pretty deep. After all there are a lot of 20 year veterans who were never in a war, and did really nothing but fill a spot and draw a pay. I guess a little history lesson is in order. At the time of the Korean War, it was called a police action. The pilots and crewmen we lost in air combat would beg to differ with you. Oh yes, I was aboard the aircraft carrier, USS Leyte CV-32. The Leyte was honored to have the first African-American pilot, Ensign Jesse L. Brown, in the Navy, aboard the Leyte, serving in VF-32, flying F4U Corsairs. Unfortunately Ensign Brown, was killed in combat serving his country. He was shot down by ground fire over Hangaru-ri, North Korea on December 4, 1950, and received the Distinguished Flying Cross. The Korean War has never ended with a peace treaty or surrender, in fact the war is still active, 63 years old this year In fact, North Korea, just two weeks ago, canceled the armistice they signed in July of 1953. So you see, the Korean war is officially still active after 63 years. If you need proof, we still have American troops in South Korea and the Demilitarized Zone. The Afghanistan war is only 10 years old. Ho Hum! The Korean War fighting lasted only three years, from July 1950 to July 1953, and 55,000 service men lost their lives, and hundreds of thousands wounded. I guess theres a great many people who just dont get it, that the Korean War was horrible, 55,000 men lost their lives. Oh yes, no Honor Flights for us. Then if that wasnt bad enough, the USS Leyte suffered two severe explosions during re-outfitting in the Boston Naval Yard, South Annex, on October 16, 1953. Thirty seven men, 32 Navy men, and five civilian workers were killed, and 40 more wounded. Well folks, I could write a full newspaper page of information regarding the Korean War, and my ship, the USS Leyte CV-32, in particular, but it would never be printed. Remember, the Koran war is the Forgotten War. Mr. Sheldon Richman, of the Future of Freedom Foundation said, the war in Afghanistan is the longest war in our history. He should brush up on our history, as hes wrong.. Oh yes, if the unstable young 26 year old leader of North Korea has his way, the Korean War could be the Second War, using nuclear weapons. Think on that for a while. At least the Korean War wasnt the drug war. Bill Ford Oak RunGuns dont kill people? 1 am tired of hearing the oversimplified bumper sticker slogan guns dont kill people ... people kill people. For those of you who dont see the obvious irrelelevance of this statement allow me to make my point. Hammers dont drive nails....people drive nails. If you needed to drive a nail, what tool would you reach for? A few of us might grab a rock or a heavy wrench but the vast majority (100% statistically) of nails are driven by hammers because hammers really do drive nails. The exact same logic applies to guns. If you wanted to kill as many people as possible and as quickly as possible, what tool would you reach for? Lets get real here. Joe Peck Dunnelion LETTERS TO THE EDITOR What can it hurt?If you want to influence the future of America and its people, simply ask God for His help. Its certainly beneficial to be mindful of the issues that confront America. Discussing the issues with your family, friends, neighbors, clerics, and politicians helps considerably. Reading a newspapers opinion page also helps. Just remember that opinions are just that opinions. They dont necessarily reflect reality. The most important thing you can do, however, is to pray to God for His influence. You must not give God your version of how to resolve an issue, simply give Him your thanks for His bountiful blessings, express your thoughts and feelings on the issue, and ask for His intervention. If your requests are righteous and arent contrary to Gods tenets, he will act on them. So offer your prayers for Americas future ... or, for that matter, for almost any reason. What can it hurt? Youll be helping America and yourself, and you will realize a personal satisfaction as well. Joe OHara Ocala Read the classifieds More letters on Page 10 157,500 employees in 1,070 locations in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, and Tennessee, Publix customers and associates raised an incredible $4.5 million in 2012 and $43 million since 1995 to help give all babies a healthy start and educate moms-to-be about the importance of taking the B vitamin folic acid.

Our Reading Volunteer Group is looking for enthusiastic people to visit two of our local elementary schools and read to the lower grades. I t would only take up about an hour of your time, six mornings a year each (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) at Sunrise and Marion Oaks Elementary schools. The books are selected by the teacher at the grade level you want, and you are escorted by two of the children to their classroom. Having the children around you engaged and anticipating the next page, discussing the book, sharing the pictures, and just being with them is a truly rewarding experience.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, April 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com March Madness is almost over. The final game for mens NCAA basketball championship will be Monday. But then NBA playoffs start Saturday April 20 with the finals some time in June. With the ball bouncing down Pun Alley towards the basket, there is no doubt about todays theme.Obvious AnswerTaken away from the TV by a phone call in the last minutes of the playoff game, Elliot asked his wife to watch and tell him who won. A few minutes later, his wife walked into his study. What was the score? he asked, covering the mouthpiece. It was 88 to 86. Oh, man! Who won? She said, Eighty Eight did.Barnyard GameIt was the strangest thing the coach had ever seen in basketball. Every time a player pushed or traveled or hacked, the referee failed to assess a penalty. Instead, hed cup his hands to his mouth and shout out the name of a barnyard bird. The coach finally had enough of this and went over to the referee. What do you think youre doing? Their guy elbows one of mine, you yell, Chicken! They trip one of my boys, you shout, Hen. Whats going on here? What are you, stupid? the referee snapped. Im calling fowls.Chop Suey?Some years ago in the Olympics the U.S. basketball team easily beat the Chinese team. When asked about the win, the U.S. coach said, It was a lot of fun playing the Chinese, but an hour later, we wanted to play them again.Foul shotsThe sportscasters who specialize in basketball have decided to form a club. The name, of course, is Full Court Press. Finding sneakers for basketball centers is no small feat. Murphy wasnt only a star hoopster, he was the greatest Irish student in history. He got his degree in just three terms: Clintons, Bushs, and Obamas. The senator suggested erasing the national deficit by charging refs a dollar for every bad call. The coach walked into the dressing room between halves to bawl out his highly touted college team: You guys are playing like a bunch of amateurs. At the local gyms basketball court the sign read, Anyone caught hanging from the rim will be suspended. A true basketball fan is one who sits in the front row and after the game, says, What cheerleaders? An unbelievable story about a basketball player is obviously a tall tale. The Washington Bullets are changing their name because the owners no longer want their teams name to be associated with crime. So from now on the team will be known as the Bullets. Poor Rupert, the masseur for the professional basketball team, was fired because he rubbed the players the wrong way. The sign at the gym where the college was holding open tryouts for the basketball team read, if you can pass through this door without bending, dont. The ant basketball team made a vow, to get better, but didnt know how. No, it just wasnt right to be lacking in height. What they needed were tolerance, now. The basketball player sat on the sidelines and sketched turkeys. He was learning to draw fowls.Higher EducationLenny, the high-school basketball miracle was told he had to pass the simplest math quiz imaginable in order to be admitted to the university. All I want you to do is count to fifteen, the math teacher said. Lenny looked down at his hands, began to count, got to ten, then faltered. The teacher said, Come on, Lenny. Cant you count any higher? Thinking hard, he raised his hands above his head and said, One, two, three ...Shoot!The University coach gathered his team around him. OK guys, remember, this is basketball, a game to develop initiative, your ability to lead & individualization within a team effort. Now go out there and do exactly as I say.Tall taleA basketball coach told an associate of a wonderful dream he had had the previous night. I met this beautiful dame, he said. Her face was adorable, her figure breathtaking, and she promptly said she had always liked me more than a little, and wouldnt I come up to her room, where she had a surprise for me. Well, when I got there she introduced me to her kid brother. Hes 7 feet 6 inches tall. Boy, what a dream!Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Were looking for a few good men! No, were looking for more than a few good men. Were looking for all you good men out there who love singing and, believe it or not, can sing. There are many of you everywhere in Marion and the surrounding counties who are a might timid to go out in public and sing your little hearts out. Well fear not, we have the solution that will turn you into a roaring vocal volcano that the public will clamor for more and more. We are confidence builders. We were all just like you before we met the Barbershop Harmony Society. It didnt take long before we found out they liked to sing just as much as we did. Singing together helped us shed any fears we had about singing before the public. We know youre going to ask, Who are these guys? Are they some kind of miracle workers? No, theyre men just like you who work at their hobby and help each other rid themselves of any fears. Its a team effort that pays musical dividends. Ill bet your champing at the bit to find out just who these extraordinary men are that will go to any extreme to help their fellow man do well. We are The Big Sun Chorus from Ocala. We are a chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, a nonprofit organization. We are those men of distinction. We are The Barbershoppers. Our form and style of singing was born and bred in the good old US of A. Along with our brothers in nine affiliates around the globe. From Germany to New Zealand and from Canada to South Africa we form the largest male singing society in the world. Our chapter meets every Monday evening, (unless we get snowed out) at 6:30 p.m. at the Ocala West United Methodist Church located at 9330 S.W. 105th St. in Ocala. For further information, contact: Doug Oxford 352-527-6980. Thank you for your attention and remember, all we ask of you is to help us Keep the whole world singing (our motto). Peter Musella Big Sun ChorusAmendment 11Im writing in response to the article in the Citizen concerning views on Amendment 11. Im one of the 61 one percent who voted for it. It was the right decision to make for our senior residents who meet the qualifications set forth in the amendment. Both articles agree that very few residents would be eligible under the guidelines set forth in the amendment, it seems to me its the loss of tax revenue that is the issue to those opposed to it and not the qualifications set forth to be eligible. If the county can find hundreds of thousands of dollars for tax relief to entice companies to locate here we can surly find some additional tax relief for those who meet the requirements of Amendment 11. We have to be a community that makes sure its most vulnerable members are cared for. These are the folks under the amendment who were here long before the commissioners or I arrived on the scene.

AFTER VISITING FRIENDS By Michael Hainey One thing Michael Hainey finally learned was that among newspapermen in the 1960s and s there was a code preventing them from ratting on a colleague. This formed the decadeslong obstacle against finding out the truth about his fathers untimely death. Hainey was only six when his Uncle Dick knocked on the door to tell the family that his father had collapsed and died alone in the street on Chicagos North Side. Being out until all hours was not unusual for the elder Hainey, the Night Slot Man at the Chicago Sun Times. And his widow never questions the circumstances. Over the years Michael was unable to extract any information from his silent, opaque mother. To his many inquiries she would strangely point to a scene in The Godfather in which Michael Corleones wife Kay asks him if he killed his sisters husband-to which Michael replies, Never ask me about my business, Kay. Restless Hainey is certain that his father did not just collapse and die in an unfamiliar part of town. And three obituaries had added after visiting friends. But who, Hainey wondered, were these friends who never showed up at the wake or identified themselves. Even the smallest clue drives Michael to pack his bags and fly to his fathers former co-workers wherever he finds them. But now aging they merely clam up and say, I dont remember anything about that night. The explanation when he finally unravels it is easy enough to understand but then armed with the truth the son cannot reveal it to his motherat least not right away. He finds the mother who did her best to raise her two sons by herself a lonely person given to playing Solitaire. He once asked her about her forRecommended: Beautifully written memoir Bookmark Pat Wellington mer friends and her answer was cryptic: Married women dont like single women. If one appears in the group, they cast her out. Ill never forget the women who cut me loose, she had said without lifting her eyes from the cards. What makes After Visiting Friends so magnetic is not the mystery of Bob Haineys death but rather the troubled skein of family relationships and the authors anxiety and frustration that becomes the readers as well. This is a beautifully written memoir that I recommend. Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Dr. Stubrud, Dr. Sands and Dr. Simpson Chiropractic, Massage, Acupuncture N 1/4 Mi.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, April 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Iam not one to boast, at least not about myself unless someone is listening, but I do give some time to exercising the little gray cells in my mind. Many people, no names given, spend most of their time yapping while people like me spend their time napping. While napping, I am also exercising my mind. Some people exercise their mind by doing crossword puzzles. I tried this but every once in a while Ill think of the right word and then that word makes me think of something else and that makes me think of something else altogether and pretty soon Im off on one of my little mind trips. One thing about these little mind trips of mine, they do not cost very much and when I come to, I am quite refreshed. One danger about my little mind trips is that sometimes I am not alone when I am tripping out. This can be quite dangerous to my health. Last week, for example, I was driving across town and happened to engage in one of my little mind trips. It must have been a good one because I was thoroughly enjoying my trip and then I began to hear in the background a variety of words that did not seem connected nor did they make sense. These words did not have anything whatsoever to do with the little trip I was on at the time. Then the words started to fall into some kind of an order. Are... You... Listening... To... What... Im... Saying? At first, they did not seem connected and to be truthful it rather upset me because these words were interrupting a very nice mind trip I was on at the time. I hate it when I am interrupted by such nonsense. For some reason I happened to glance over to At this time of year, Ive got Easter on my mind my right and was shocked to discover that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was sitting in the passenger seat. At first, I thought I was hallucinating. However, she was looking back at me! I stared at her for a minute and then demanded, What are you doing in my car? She gave me one of those looks indicating I was in serious trouble. Then it dawned on me. We were going across town to go shopping. For some reason I had tuned everything out and slipped into a wonderful mind trip. Well, for the rest of the trip I was listening to a voice but that voice was not in my head; it was in my ears. Both of them. I had to leave my little mind trip for another occasion when I was by myself. I must confess that when I get on one of those mind trips of mine I lose sense of everything around me. I have a very active mind; of course, my wife says I have a very active imagination. I am not sure the difference, and I am not about to ask her, either. Some mysteries in life should be just that. A mystery. One mind trip that I get on to about this time a year is Easter. Lately I have had Easter on my mind. I know the word Easter, is not a very politically correct word today. But then I am not running for politics, in fact, I am running away from politics as much as possible. I like the word Easter. In some places, they are changing the Easter Bunny to the Spring Bunny and the Easter Egg Hunt to the Spring Egg Hunt. This is supposed to be more PC tolerable. After all, it is important that we should be PC in everything we do. Those people who object to the word Easter, I wonder if they really know where it came from. To some the Easter Bunny has some kind of a religious connotation. Personally, I never discovered what denomination the Easter Bunny is a member of. Where does the Easter Bunny attend church? The First Church of the Easter Egg Hunt? It has become a popular thing not to tolerate religion in our country. Well, let me correct that. We tolerate all religions except Christianity. It is too bad the people who cannot tolerate Christianity are unable to read. I think it is sad this generation is not able to read anymore, because if they were, they might read some of the history of this country and discover it was founded on Christian principles. Imagine that! I can understand why people are confused about Easter with the Easter Bunny and the Easter Egg. Most are confused about how the Easter Bunny can lay Easter Eggs. They are only familiar with Bugs Bunny and everybody knows he cannot lay an egg. So, where do these mysterious Easter Eggs come from? Laying all that nonsense aside, and that is all it is, Easter has some very wonderful memories for me. Say what they will, nothing they say can undermine the wonderful thoughts I have about Easter. I like what the apostle Paul says, For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV). The songwriter was right when he said, Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Read the classifieds This Easter, after walking a neighbors dog I came upon an interesting sight. There on some of the lawns, were colored Easter eggs. Now that isnt really so unusual, but what was, is there was an, (dare I say) Easter Bunny hopping along at a good clip in the yard across the street. I blinked, to be sure I wasnt seeing things, and yet, there it was again. When I got to my lawn, there on the grass were two eggs. One was yellow, the other was green! I was very surprised, and happy to see that such wonderful things can still happen on Easter day! What a strange Easter morning that was!ShuffleboardEd Durham says that the troops are increasing, but we can still use a few more players for our games on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6:30. Ive even gotten addicted, which is easy to do! Its fun, its great exercise, and the people who play are very helpful and silly at times. It doesnt cost anything to come out and try it! By the way, Paul Roy is waxing up those babies so the slide as though they are on ice. Wow!Bratwurst roastOn April 14, we are having out second roast. There is a sign up sheet in the Clubhouse. You can bring a side dish, and the brats, drinks and eating plates and utensils are provided. Its a $3 charge to have a great time, and listen to entertainment.Womens PokerToday, I stopped by the Clubhouse to meet with the women that play poker on Mondays at 12:30. What a terrific bunch of gals. They were munching on snacks, telling jokes and having a wonderful time. They said its a perfect time to socialize and meet new people in the neighborhood. It looks like Ill be playing along with them next week. What a super warm weather activity during the hotter months! Why not join us? Strange happenings on Easter in Spruce Creek North Person of interest Ray, from the Clubhouse does a terrific job of keeping the place spotlessly clean, well maintained and comfortable. He is ready and willing to lend a hand when called upon for help. He and Dan keep our common area beautiful, all year long! Thank you very much, guys!Just a reminderOn April 17 there will be an open Board meeting at the Clubhouse. The guest speaker will be Laurie Cropley from Heirs-Baxley. She will be discussing complementary planning and is offering free refreshments to all who attend. The fun starts at 6:30. It sounds good to me!In my opinionWhen I go for my morning walk with Casey, my canine friend, I often notice how lovely our neighborhood looks. With the arrival of spring, the new buds coming out, and the freshly planted flowers, it looks spectacular. Taking pride in our homes and community counts a lot for what others think of where we live. So, Ive gotten out my gloves and trowel, and watch to see how soon my spring yard takes shape. We can all have an appealing neighborhood with just a little work. Thanks to all of you for keeping your yards and houses so beautiful.Ann Brennan can be reached at 352-342-9466 or at nickevan7@hotmail.com.

A system based on 10 with numerals invented by the Arabs. Numbers, just numbers, who can fathom them all? Six million. The number of Jews murdered by the Nazis during the Holocaust years of 1935 when Hitler took power in Germany until the defeat of the Japanese army and end of World War II in 1945. Men, women and children. Killed by poison gas, bayonetting or gunshot because they were Jewish by birth. Numbers, just numbers. Three million. The number of Jews killed in concentration camps whether by disease, starvation, or murder. Numbers, just numbers. Two million. The number of people killed by the Einsatzgruppen. These special duty troops were assigned to German army units that were invading the Soviet Union. They had the task of rounding up Jews and killing them. The victims were put on trucks, driven to remote areas and killed by carbon monoxide poisoning by allowing the exhaust of the trucks to go into the area of the trucks were the Jews were held or shot into ravines with graves dug by the victims before their deaths. This method was proven to be not efficient enough for the Germans who later developed the mass murder system of gassing Jews in concentration camps. Numbers, just numbers. Eight hundred thousand and seventy Jews were killed at Treblinka using a staff of just 150 people. Numbers, just numbers. One hundred thousand. The number of Jews that died on death marches. Half starved people were forced to march long distances to get to slave labor or extermination camps. Those who faltered were shot on site. Numbers, just numbers. In Birkenau, twenty thousand Poles, nineteen thousand Gypsies and twelve thousand Russian prisoners of war were murdered. Numbers, just numbers. Seven thousand. The number of Danish Jews saved from extinction by the Danish Resistance. Through the efforts of the Danish Resistance, virtually all the Jews of Denmark were allowed to escape to Sweden, which was a neutral country during the Second World War. The Danish people never looked at their Jewish countrymen as Jews but as Danish citizens, entitled to all the rights that Christians enjoyed.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 000EK0I www.westmarionba.com 16~ Friday, April 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com commemorated in a special exhibit at Israels monument and museum to Righteous Gentiles, Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Numbers, just numbers. Six thousand. The number of people that could be gassed at Auschwitz daily. It took just 20 minutes to do this using a poison gas called Zyclon B, originally developed for use as a pesticide. Numbers, just numbers. One thousand, the number of concentration camps ordered built by Hitler. Combining centuries of anti-Semitism with racist propaganda, he was able to rationalize his diabolical scheme to kill all the Jews of Europe to the German people. And while the German citizens of the towns where the camps were located either knew or suspected or feigned blissful ignorance of the goings on, when the camps were liberated, these citizens were forced to pay witness to the inhumane acts of the Nazis by touring the crematoria and barracks where the Jews were held captive. Many Germans openly wept at what their countrymen had done. Numbers, just numbers. Fourteen. On the 20th of January, 1942, fourteen highranking Nazi officials gathered at the German resort town of Wannsee to discuss the Final Solution to the Jewish problem. This amounted to the mass murder of the Jews of Europe with Adolph Eichmann at its head. The grand architect of the Final Solution was captured by the Israelis and hung after a trial in Israel in 1962. Numbers, just a solitary number. Only one. One person can change the world for good or evil. Hitler will go down in history as the perpetrator of evil as the world as never known. From the medical experiments done on inmates to the cruel and inhumane concentration camps to the millions of people Jews and non-Jews the Nazis murdered, his name will be remembered among the evil, worse than the Pharaoh that enslaved the ancient Israelites, worse than Haman who had plans to murder the Jews of ancient Persia, or the Babylonians who destroyed the first Temple, or the Romans who destroyed the second to the Inquisition, pogroms and all atrocities in-between, none of these compared to what would be known as The Holocaust. Numbers, a placeholder known as zero. Nothing, nada, rien, niets, niente, nichts. The miles of track that led to concentration camps bombed by the Allies. Though what the Nazis were doing was known to the Allies, it was believed bombing the tracks to the camps would claim too many lives. Holocaust survivor and activist, Elie Weisel, has often commented about this decision. Numbers, only numbers. Yom HaShoah or Holocaust Memorial Day occurs this year on the 7th of April. JUDICONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 Troubadours will be presenting their Spring Concert on Friday, April 12, and Saturday, April 13, at 7 p.m. at Palm Grove. Were almost there; just a few more rehearsals and suddenly the night will have arrived! Weve practiced so hard, with extra rehearsals wherever we could find a place to do it. But it has paid off, as you will see the night you attend the concert. We have a wonderful group of dedicated people who come every week and give so much of themselves so they can give you the very best. Its not a chore for us, but rather our pleasure to sing the wonderful music that has been carefully selected for this concert. The music is inspiring, soothing, upbeat and sometimes a song will touch you in a very special way. For those ofyou who love to sing in chorale groups, you know its lots of fun, but very challenging. Its a very good way to keep your mind alert. Please dont stay home on these two nights, come and enjoy the program.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 000EK0I www.westmarionba.com 16~ Friday, April 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com commemorated in a special exhibit at Israels monument and museum to Righteous Gentiles, Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Numbers, just numbers. Six thousand. The number of people that could be gassed at Auschwitz daily. It took just 20 minutes to do this using a poison gas called Zyclon B, originally developed for use as a pesticide. Numbers, just numbers. One thousand, the number of concentration camps ordered built by Hitler. Combining centuries of anti-Semitism with racist propaganda, he was able to rationalize his diabolical scheme to kill all the Jews of Europe to the German people. And while the German citizens of the towns where the camps were located either knew or suspected or feigned blissful ignorance of the goings on, when the camps were liberated, these citizens were forced to pay witness to the inhumane acts of the Nazis by touring the crematoria and barracks where the Jews were held captive. Many Germans openly wept at what their countrymen had done. Numbers, just numbers. Fourteen. On the 20th of January, 1942, fourteen highranking Nazi officials gathered at the German resort town of Wannsee to discuss the Final Solution to the Jewish problem. This amounted to the mass murder of the Jews of Europe with Adolph Eichmann at its head. The grand architect of the Final Solution was captured by the Israelis and hung after a trial in Israel in 1962. Numbers, just a solitary number. Only one. One person can change the world for good or evil. Hitler will go down in history as the perpetrator of evil as the world as never known. From the medical experiments done on inmates to the cruel and inhumane concentration camps to the millions of people Jews and non-Jews the Nazis murdered, his name will be remembered among the evil, worse than the Pharaoh that enslaved the ancient Israelites, worse than Haman who had plans to murder the Jews of ancient Persia, or the Babylonians who destroyed the first Temple, or the Romans who destroyed the second to the Inquisition, pogroms and all atrocities in-between, none of these compared to what would be known as The Holocaust. Numbers, a placeholder known as zero. Nothing, nada, rien, niets, niente, nichts. The miles of track that led to concentration camps bombed by the Allies. Though what the Nazis were doing was known to the Allies, it was believed bombing the tracks to the camps would claim too many lives. Holocaust survivor and activist, Elie Weisel, has often commented about this decision. Numbers, only numbers. Yom HaShoah or Holocaust Memorial Day occurs this year on the 7th of April.

Men, women and children. Killed by poison gas, bayonetting or gunshot because they were Jewish by birth. Numbers, just numbers. Three million. The number of Jews killed in concentration camps whether by disease, starvation, or murder. Numbers, just numbers. Two million. The number of people killed by the Einsatzgruppen. These special duty troops were assigned to German army units that were invading the Soviet Union. They had the task of rounding up Jews and killing them. The victims were put on trucks, driven to remote areas and killed by carbon monoxide poisoning by allowing the exhaust of the trucks to go into the area of the trucks were the Jews were held or shot into ravines with graves dug by the victims before their deaths. This method was proven to be not efficient enough for the Germans who later developed the mass murder system of gassing Jews in concentration camps. Numbers, just numbers. Eight hundred thousand and seventy Jews were killed at Treblinka using a staff of just 150 people. Numbers, just numbers. One hundred thousand. The number of Jews that died on death marches. Half starved people were forced to march long distances to get to slave labor or extermination camps. Those who faltered were shot on site. Numbers, just numbers. In Birkenau, twenty thousand Poles, nineteen thousand Gypsies and twelve thousand Russian prisoners of war were murdered. Numbers, just numbers. Seven thousand. The number of Danish Jews saved from extinction by the Danish Resistance. Through the efforts of the Danish Resistance, virtually all the Jews of Denmark were allowed to escape to Sweden, which was a neutral country during the Second World War. The Danish people never looked at their Jewish countrymen as Jews but as Danish citizens, entitled to all the rights that Christians enjoyed.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, April 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Iam not one to boast, at least not about myself unless someone is listening, but I do give some time to exercising the little gray cells in my mind. Many people, no names given, spend most of their time yapping while people like me spend their time napping. While napping, I am also exercising my mind. Some people exercise their mind by doing crossword puzzles. I tried this but every once in a while Ill think of the right word and then that word makes me think of something else and that makes me think of something else altogether and pretty soon Im off on one of my little mind trips. One thing about these little mind trips of mine, they do not cost very much and when I come to, I am quite refreshed. One danger about my little mind trips is that sometimes I am not alone when I am tripping out. This can be quite dangerous to my health. Last week, for example, I was driving across town and happened to engage in one of my little mind trips. It must have been a good one because I was thoroughly enjoying my trip and then I began to hear in the background a variety of words that did not seem connected nor did they make sense. These words did not have anything whatsoever to do with the little trip I was on at the time. Then the words started to fall into some kind of an order. Are... You... Listening... To... What... Im... Saying? At first, they did not seem connected and to be truthful it rather upset me because these words were interrupting a very nice mind trip I was on at the time. I hate it when I am interrupted by such nonsense. For some reason I happened to glance over to At this time of year, Ive got Easter on my mind my right and was shocked to discover that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was sitting in the passenger seat. At first, I thought I was hallucinating. However, she was looking back at me! I stared at her for a minute and then demanded, What are you doing in my car? She gave me one of those looks indicating I was in serious trouble. Then it dawned on me. We were going across town to go shopping. For some reason I had tuned everything out and slipped into a wonderful mind trip. Well, for the rest of the trip I was listening to a voice but that voice was not in my head; it was in my ears. Both of them. I had to leave my little mind trip for another occasion when I was by myself. I must confess that when I get on one of those mind trips of mine I lose sense of everything around me. I have a very active mind; of course, my wife says I have a very active imagination. I am not sure the difference, and I am not about to ask her, either. Some mysteries in life should be just that. A mystery. One mind trip that I get on to about this time a year is Easter. Lately I have had Easter on my mind. I know the word Easter, is not a very politically correct word today. But then I am not running for politics, in fact, I am running away from politics as much as possible. I like the word Easter. In some places, they are changing the Easter Bunny to the Spring Bunny and the Easter Egg Hunt to the Spring Egg Hunt. This is supposed to be more PC tolerable. After all, it is important that we should be PC in everything we do. Those people who object to the word Easter, I wonder if they really know where it came from. To some the Easter Bunny has some kind of a religious connotation. Personally, I never discovered what denomination the Easter Bunny is a member of. Where does the Easter Bunny attend church? The First Church of the Easter Egg Hunt? It has become a popular thing not to tolerate religion in our country. Well, let me correct that. We tolerate all religions except Christianity. It is too bad the people who cannot tolerate Christianity are unable to read. I think it is sad this generation is not able to read anymore, because if they were, they might read some of the history of this country and discover it was founded on Christian principles. Imagine that! I can understand why people are confused about Easter with the Easter Bunny and the Easter Egg. Most are confused about how the Easter Bunny can lay Easter Eggs. They are only familiar with Bugs Bunny and everybody knows he cannot lay an egg. So, where do these mysterious Easter Eggs come from? Laying all that nonsense aside, and that is all it is, Easter has some very wonderful memories for me. Say what they will, nothing they say can undermine the wonderful thoughts I have about Easter. I like what the apostle Paul says, For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV). The songwriter was right when he said, Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Read the classifieds This Easter, after walking a neighbors dog I came upon an interesting sight. There on some of the lawns, were colored Easter eggs. Now that isnt really so unusual, but what was, is there was an, (dare I say) Easter Bunny hopping along at a good clip in the yard across the street. I blinked, to be sure I wasnt seeing things, and yet, there it was again. When I got to my lawn, there on the grass were two eggs. One was yellow, the other was green! I was very surprised, and happy to see that such wonderful things can still happen on Easter day! What a strange Easter morning that was!ShuffleboardEd Durham says that the troops are increasing, but we can still use a few more players for our games on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6:30. Ive even gotten addicted, which is easy to do! Its fun, its great exercise, and the people who play are very helpful and silly at times. It doesnt cost anything to come out and try it! By the way, Paul Roy is waxing up those babies so the slide as though they are on ice. Wow!Bratwurst roastOn April 14, we are having out second roast. There is a sign up sheet in the Clubhouse. You can bring a side dish, and the brats, drinks and eating plates and utensils are provided. Its a $3 charge to have a great time, and listen to entertainment.Womens PokerToday, I stopped by the Clubhouse to meet with the women that play poker on Mondays at 12:30. What a terrific bunch of gals. They were munching on snacks, telling jokes and having a wonderful time. They said its a perfect time to socialize and meet new people in the neighborhood. It looks like Ill be playing along with them next week. What a super warm weather activity during the hotter months! Why not join us? Strange happenings on Easter in Spruce Creek North Person of interest Ray, from the Clubhouse does a terrific job of keeping the place spotlessly clean, well maintained and comfortable. He is ready and willing to lend a hand when called upon for help. He and Dan keep our common area beautiful, all year long! Thank you very much, guys!Just a reminderOn April 17 there will be an open Board meeting at the Clubhouse. The guest speaker will be Laurie Cropley from Heirs-Baxley. She will be discussing complementary planning and is offering free refreshments to all who attend. The fun starts at 6:30. It sounds good to me!In my opinionWhen I go for my morning walk with Casey, my canine friend, I often notice how lovely our neighborhood looks. With the arrival of spring, the new buds coming out, and the freshly planted flowers, it looks spectacular. Taking pride in our homes and community counts a lot for what others think of where we live. So, Ive gotten out my gloves and trowel, and watch to see how soon my spring yard takes shape. We can all have an appealing neighborhood with just a little work. Thanks to all of you for keeping your yards and houses so beautiful.Ann Brennan can be reached at 352-342-9466 or at nickevan7@hotmail.com.

Were looking for a few good men! No, were looking for more than a few good men. Were looking for all you good men out there who love singing and, believe it or not, can sing. There are many of you everywhere in Marion and the surrounding counties who are a might timid to go out in public and sing your little hearts out. Well fear not, we have the solution that will turn you into a roaring vocal volcano that the public will clamor for more and more. We are confidence builders. We were all just like you before we met the Barbershop Harmony Society. It didnt take long before we found out they liked to sing just as much as we did. Singing together helped us shed any fears we had about singing before the public. We know youre going to ask, Who are these guys? Are they some kind of miracle workers? No, theyre men just like you who work at their hobby and help each other rid themselves of any fears. Its a team effort that pays musical dividends. Ill bet your champing at the bit to find out just who these extraordinary men are that will go to any extreme to help their fellow man do well. We are The Big Sun Chorus from Ocala. We are a chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, a nonprofit organization. We are those men of distinction. We are The Barbershoppers. Our form and style of singing was born and bred in the good old US of A. Along with our brothers in nine affiliates around the globe. From Germany to New Zealand and from Canada to South Africa we form the largest male singing society in the world. Our chapter meets every Monday evening, (unless we get snowed out) at 6:30 p.m. at the Ocala West United Methodist Church located at 9330 S.W. 105th St. in Ocala. For further information, contact: Doug Oxford 352-527-6980. Thank you for your attention and remember, all we ask of you is to help us Keep the whole world singing (our motto). Peter Musella Big Sun ChorusAmendment 11Im writing in response to the article in the Citizen concerning views on Amendment 11. Im one of the 61 one percent who voted for it. It was the right decision to make for our senior residents who meet the qualifications set forth in the amendment. Both articles agree that very few residents would be eligible under the guidelines set forth in the amendment, it seems to me its the loss of tax revenue that is the issue to those opposed to it and not the qualifications set forth to be eligible. If the county can find hundreds of thousands of dollars for tax relief to entice companies to locate here we can surly find some additional tax relief for those who meet the requirements of Amendment 11. We have to be a community that makes sure its most vulnerable members are cared for. These are the folks under the amendment who were here long before the commissioners or I arrived on the scene.

AFTER VISITING FRIENDS By Michael Hainey One thing Michael Hainey finally learned was that among newspapermen in the 1960s and s there was a code preventing them from ratting on a colleague. This formed the decadeslong obstacle against finding out the truth about his fathers untimely death. Hainey was only six when his Uncle Dick knocked on the door to tell the family that his father had collapsed and died alone in the street on Chicagos North Side. Being out until all hours was not unusual for the elder Hainey, the Night Slot Man at the Chicago Sun Times. And his widow never questions the circumstances. Over the years Michael was unable to extract any information from his silent, opaque mother. To his many inquiries she would strangely point to a scene in The Godfather in which Michael Corleones wife Kay asks him if he killed his sisters husband-to which Michael replies, Never ask me about my business, Kay. Restless Hainey is certain that his father did not just collapse and die in an unfamiliar part of town. And three obituaries had added after visiting friends. But who, Hainey wondered, were these friends who never showed up at the wake or identified themselves. Even the smallest clue drives Michael to pack his bags and fly to his fathers former co-workers wherever he finds them. But now aging they merely clam up and say, I dont remember anything about that night. The explanation when he finally unravels it is easy enough to understand but then armed with the truth the son cannot reveal it to his motherat least not right away. He finds the mother who did her best to raise her two sons by herself a lonely person given to playing Solitaire. He once asked her about her forRecommended: Beautifully written memoir Bookmark Pat Wellington mer friends and her answer was cryptic: Married women dont like single women. If one appears in the group, they cast her out. Ill never forget the women who cut me loose, she had said without lifting her eyes from the cards. What makes After Visiting Friends so magnetic is not the mystery of Bob Haineys death but rather the troubled skein of family relationships and the authors anxiety and frustration that becomes the readers as well. This is a beautifully written memoir that I recommend. Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Dr. Stubrud, Dr. Sands and Dr. Simpson Chiropractic, Massage, Acupuncture N 1/4 Mi.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, April 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com March Madness is almost over. The final game for mens NCAA basketball championship will be Monday. But then NBA playoffs start Saturday April 20 with the finals some time in June. With the ball bouncing down Pun Alley towards the basket, there is no doubt about todays theme.Obvious AnswerTaken away from the TV by a phone call in the last minutes of the playoff game, Elliot asked his wife to watch and tell him who won. A few minutes later, his wife walked into his study. What was the score? he asked, covering the mouthpiece. It was 88 to 86. Oh, man! Who won? She said, Eighty Eight did.Barnyard GameIt was the strangest thing the coach had ever seen in basketball. Every time a player pushed or traveled or hacked, the referee failed to assess a penalty. Instead, hed cup his hands to his mouth and shout out the name of a barnyard bird. The coach finally had enough of this and went over to the referee. What do you think youre doing? Their guy elbows one of mine, you yell, Chicken! They trip one of my boys, you shout, Hen. Whats going on here? What are you, stupid? the referee snapped. Im calling fowls.Chop Suey?Some years ago in the Olympics the U.S. basketball team easily beat the Chinese team. When asked about the win, the U.S. coach said, It was a lot of fun playing the Chinese, but an hour later, we wanted to play them again.Foul shotsThe sportscasters who specialize in basketball have decided to form a club. The name, of course, is Full Court Press. Finding sneakers for basketball centers is no small feat. Murphy wasnt only a star hoopster, he was the greatest Irish student in history. He got his degree in just three terms: Clintons, Bushs, and Obamas. The senator suggested erasing the national deficit by charging refs a dollar for every bad call. The coach walked into the dressing room between halves to bawl out his highly touted college team: You guys are playing like a bunch of amateurs. At the local gyms basketball court the sign read, Anyone caught hanging from the rim will be suspended. A true basketball fan is one who sits in the front row and after the game, says, What cheerleaders? An unbelievable story about a basketball player is obviously a tall tale. The Washington Bullets are changing their name because the owners no longer want their teams name to be associated with crime. So from now on the team will be known as the Bullets. Poor Rupert, the masseur for the professional basketball team, was fired because he rubbed the players the wrong way. The sign at the gym where the college was holding open tryouts for the basketball team read, if you can pass through this door without bending, dont. The ant basketball team made a vow, to get better, but didnt know how. No, it just wasnt right to be lacking in height. What they needed were tolerance, now. The basketball player sat on the sidelines and sketched turkeys. He was learning to draw fowls.Higher EducationLenny, the high-school basketball miracle was told he had to pass the simplest math quiz imaginable in order to be admitted to the university. All I want you to do is count to fifteen, the math teacher said. Lenny looked down at his hands, began to count, got to ten, then faltered. The teacher said, Come on, Lenny. Cant you count any higher? Thinking hard, he raised his hands above his head and said, One, two, three ...Shoot!The University coach gathered his team around him. OK guys, remember, this is basketball, a game to develop initiative, your ability to lead & individualization within a team effort. Now go out there and do exactly as I say.Tall taleA basketball coach told an associate of a wonderful dream he had had the previous night. I met this beautiful dame, he said. Her face was adorable, her figure breathtaking, and she promptly said she had always liked me more than a little, and wouldnt I come up to her room, where she had a surprise for me. Well, when I got there she introduced me to her kid brother. Hes 7 feet 6 inches tall. Boy, what a dream!Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Friday, April 5, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, April 5, 2013 Back around 1990, I had occasion to make several trips between the East Coast of Florida and Ohio. The fastest route was up Interstate 77. You traveled Interstate 95 to South Carolina, took Interstate 26 to Columbia, then picked up I-77 all the way into Ohio. As one who doesnt like heights, I always dreaded one stretch of I77, just north of the North Carolina-Virginia border. When you cross into Virginia, you promptly are greeted by the Appalachian Mountains, and you start going up. After the first exit, the climb is seven miles into the heavens. When you finally get to the next exit, its a place called Fancy Gap, and you can breathe a little easier. A little further up the road is a town aptly named Hillsville, and from there its clear sailing. For those who like such things, those first seven miles provide a spectacular view, especially to your right as youre going north. At night you can see pinpoints of light that are obviously miles away, and you can get the sensation that youre flying. One reason for that is that over the right side, theres a cliff, then nothing. To your left is the southbound traffic with the mountain next to the highway, so southbound really doesnt make you squeamish. The worst seven miles of my driving life came going up this mountain. I hit it on a foggy day with snow falling. I was driving a little car called a Chevette (hey, it was cheap) that didnt have much get-up-and-go. I was just hoping that one of those big trucks hadnt stopped in my lane, because I would be crushed like a bug. The southbound side never bothered me much. There was a guardrail and the northbound lanes to stop me on the left, and a mountain on my right. Here, I was going down seven miles. There were even two truck emergency lanes, where trucks could get off and go up in soft ground to stop if their brakes failed. But speed was always a factor on the downhill side and, unfortunately, thats what happened a few days ago, on Easter Sunday. About 95 vehicles were involved in a series of 17 accidents, tying up traffic in both lanes. At last report three people were killed. Officials said fog was a factor, but so was excessive speed. I could easily relate to that. The pictures from the scene were devastating, just a pile of rubble and burned out vehicles. The Galax Gazette, a sister newspaper of ours located near that Hillsville exit, did a nice timeline showing the accident and its aftermath. As for me, Ill probably never make that trip again. I cant see any reason to go up that way, and I dont need the anxiety of going up that mountain. When I drive, I do it to relax. Climbing the Appalachians in fog and snow doesnt do much to ease tension. For those of you who might have occasion to drive up that way, especially those who are leaving this month to spend the summer up north, please drive safely and respect this stretch of road. And when you come back south, take it easy and get here in one piece. About 95 vehicles had their trip interrupted on Easter Sunday. Please dont become another statistic on this road.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Theres a website called flightaware.com for those who like to pretend they are air traffic controllers. When you go to that site, on the left theres an airport tracker/info section. You can put in the name of the city you want to view or, if you know it, the threeletter airport code (thats the three letters you find on your luggage, JFK for Kennedy, LGA for LaGuardia, MCO for Orlando, TPA for Tampa, etc.). You will find yourself looking at the same radar that controllers see, just slightly time delayed for security. You can easily switch airports, and watch flights with the airline, the type of plane, the speed, origination and destination, and cruising altitude. But if you type in OCF, which is the code for Ocala, youll be asking, Where did everybody go? You will still be able to see the overflights, planes going to other airports that are flying over Ocala, but youll soon realize that none of them are coming here. Thats why were not particularly concerned that the FAA has decided to close the control tower, yes, the nice new control tower, at Ocala International Airport. The airport used to run just fine without the tower, and it will continue to do so. The FAA is closing down towers at many small airports across the nation, and Ocala is on the list. The tower is slated to shut down later this month. The reason, of course, is money. Were sure there are pilots who like having the control tower to help make sure that their airspace is clear. But with the land as flat as it is around here, visual landings are much easier than, say, Atlanta or Denver, places with mountains in the area. So dont worry. Its not likely that planes will be dropping on our houses and streets because of the lack of an operational control tower. Now, what do they do with that tower thats sitting out there. Maybe it can be a tourist attraction. Hey everybody, come out and pretend youre guiding planes to landings. Or you can be a ground controller, steering all those planes around the tarmac. Maybe they can even put a computer with flightaware.com in there, to simulate the real thing. Apparently thats as close as were going to get around here for a while. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Closing of tower not a big deal Crash brings back some memories READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The Korean War, the forgotten warWhile driving in the car today, I had on a talk radio station. They were discussing the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Primarily talking about WWII veterans numbers diminishing, but they also commented, there are the Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans still holding forth. Then there was a question called in about Korean war veterans, and the commentator said, Oh yes theres some of those guys left and theyre getting into their 80s now. Being a Korean war veteran, that stung pretty deep. After all there are a lot of 20 year veterans who were never in a war, and did really nothing but fill a spot and draw a pay. I guess a little history lesson is in order. At the time of the Korean War, it was called a police action. The pilots and crewmen we lost in air combat would beg to differ with you. Oh yes, I was aboard the aircraft carrier, USS Leyte CV-32. The Leyte was honored to have the first African-American pilot, Ensign Jesse L. Brown, in the Navy, aboard the Leyte, serving in VF-32, flying F4U Corsairs. Unfortunately Ensign Brown, was killed in combat serving his country. He was shot down by ground fire over Hangaru-ri, North Korea on December 4, 1950, and received the Distinguished Flying Cross. The Korean War has never ended with a peace treaty or surrender, in fact the war is still active, 63 years old this year In fact, North Korea, just two weeks ago, canceled the armistice they signed in July of 1953. So you see, the Korean war is officially still active after 63 years. If you need proof, we still have American troops in South Korea and the Demilitarized Zone. The Afghanistan war is only 10 years old. Ho Hum! The Korean War fighting lasted only three years, from July 1950 to July 1953, and 55,000 service men lost their lives, and hundreds of thousands wounded. I guess theres a great many people who just dont get it, that the Korean War was horrible, 55,000 men lost their lives. Oh yes, no Honor Flights for us. Then if that wasnt bad enough, the USS Leyte suffered two severe explosions during re-outfitting in the Boston Naval Yard, South Annex, on October 16, 1953. Thirty seven men, 32 Navy men, and five civilian workers were killed, and 40 more wounded. Well folks, I could write a full newspaper page of information regarding the Korean War, and my ship, the USS Leyte CV-32, in particular, but it would never be printed. Remember, the Koran war is the Forgotten War. Mr. Sheldon Richman, of the Future of Freedom Foundation said, the war in Afghanistan is the longest war in our history. He should brush up on our history, as hes wrong.. Oh yes, if the unstable young 26 year old leader of North Korea has his way, the Korean War could be the Second War, using nuclear weapons. Think on that for a while. At least the Korean War wasnt the drug war. Bill Ford Oak RunGuns dont kill people? 1 am tired of hearing the oversimplified bumper sticker slogan guns dont kill people ... people kill people. For those of you who dont see the obvious irrelelevance of this statement allow me to make my point. Hammers dont drive nails....people drive nails. If you needed to drive a nail, what tool would you reach for? A few of us might grab a rock or a heavy wrench but the vast majority (100% statistically) of nails are driven by hammers because hammers really do drive nails. The exact same logic applies to guns. If you wanted to kill as many people as possible and as quickly as possible, what tool would you reach for? Lets get real here. Joe Peck Dunnelion LETTERS TO THE EDITOR What can it hurt?If you want to influence the future of America and its people, simply ask God for His help. Its certainly beneficial to be mindful of the issues that confront America. Discussing the issues with your family, friends, neighbors, clerics, and politicians helps considerably. Reading a newspapers opinion page also helps. Just remember that opinions are just that opinions. They dont necessarily reflect reality. The most important thing you can do, however, is to pray to God for His influence. You must not give God your version of how to resolve an issue, simply give Him your thanks for His bountiful blessings, express your thoughts and feelings on the issue, and ask for His intervention. If your requests are righteous and arent contrary to Gods tenets, he will act on them. So offer your prayers for Americas future ... or, for that matter, for almost any reason. What can it hurt? Youll be helping America and yourself, and you will realize a personal satisfaction as well. Joe OHara Ocala Read the classifieds More letters on Page 10 157,500 employees in 1,070 locations in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, and Tennessee, Publix customers and associates raised an incredible $4.5 million in 2012 and $43 million since 1995 to help give all babies a healthy start and educate moms-to-be about the importance of taking the B vitamin folic acid.

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

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 More on Page 6 BY RICH LOWRY The nation's elementary schools are overrun by small-minded and unreasonable people, prone to hysterics, who can't distinguish between make-believe and reality. They are called school administrators. In the wake of the Newtown, Conn., massacre, they have been punishing little children for making gunlike gestures with their fingers and other harmless horseplay. The people who run our schools must have been too busy brushing up on their "zero tolerance" policies to notice that Newtown was perpetrated with an AR-15, not with a toy or with a finger. We expect 5-year-olds to be childish. What's the excuse for the people running our schools? Five-year-old Joseph Cruz brandished a gun made out of Legos in his day-care program while, in the words of the Barnstable Public School District in Hyannis, Mass., "simulating the sound of gunfire." For a layman, that's called saying "pow." Cruz got a stiff warning for "using daycare toys inappropriately." A 5-year-old girl was suspended from kindergarten at Mount Carmel Area Elementary School in Northumberland County, Pa., after "threatening" to shoot classmates with her pink Hello Kitty gun that fires soapy bubbles. A mandatory psychological evaluation found, according to a news report, "that the girl did not represent any threat to others." Whew. White Marsh Elementary in Maryland suspended two first-graders for playing cops and robbers on the playground. In true 21st-century fashion, the school board said it was forbidden from giving out more information "due to confidentially requirements under the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)." An 8-year-old in Prince William County, Va., was suspended for firing back with an imaginary gun after a friend shot him with an imaginary bow and arrow. Evidently, nothing happened to the other kid. This points to a disturbing "bow and arrow" loophole that could conceivably accommodate everything from imaginary poison darts to make-believe medieval siege weapons. The Al Capone of the zero-tolerance offenders is the daring second-grader in Anne Arundel County, Md., who chewed his strawberry breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun and then brazenly pointed it at a classmate. Park Elementary school suspended him for two days. Who defends this foolish lack of proportion? The American Association of School Administrators. Its executive director, Dan Domenech, told USA Today: "Parents have to be aware that talking about guns or using your fingers to point like a gun is no longer tolerable or prudent." Why, pray tell? School shooters tend to be disturbed young men. In no case has a shooter ever been an adorable 5-yearold child. In the grips of a strange mania, school administrators believe that any symbolic representation of a gun, no matter how innocent, is all but indistinguishable from a real gun. This is not a mistake that gun owners make. The fake-finger gun doesn't do much for the average sportsman. It can't bring down a deer, and doesn't exactly light up the gun range. No matter. We don't have common sense; we have rules. We don't have judgment; we have bureaucratic procedure. Too often, our grown-ups are the ones desperately in need of adult supervision.Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.(c) 2013 by King Features Synd., Inc. GUEST COMMENTARIES Elementary school administrators have rules, no common sense BY SHELDON RICHMAN Its hard to believe that in the 21st century, educated people believe the government can produce real wealth by creating money. Its especially ironic that the main preachers of this superstition fancy themselves progressives and are the first to accuse their opponents of being against science. What could be more antiscience than the alchemic proposal to create wealth by having the Federal Reserve make entries in a digital ledger? Its more absurd than alchemy: Alchemists claimed they could turn base metals into gold. Inflationists require only thin air. The commonsense reaction is: Balderdash! So it takes real devotion to the power of government to embrace such a ridiculous idea. Consider Chris Hayes, the MSNBC host. Last Saturday on his program, Up, he said this in introducing a segment on the proposal that the Treasury mint a $1 trillion coin to get around its debt limit: The simple truth is it [the government) creates money simply out of thin air. Someone at the Federal Reserve punches in a number on a spreadsheet and voila! more money. While there are rules that guide legal tender, at base, what makes money valuable is simply social convention, a norm. We all agree its valuable, so its valuable. The genius of the trillion dollar coin isnt just that it provides some much needed leverage against a foe unencumbered by any sense of propriety, it also illustrates the uncomfortable, foundational reality of modern capitalism: money is nothing more than a shared illusion. Its a kind of magic. But is it good magic or bad magic? At least he admits that in this case he believes in magic. The value of money is a convention, a norm, a shared illusion? Did society agree that the dollar should lose 95 percent of its purchasing power since the Federal Reserve opened its doors nearly a hundred years ago? This view is as unscientific as one can imagine. The science it rejects is economics. Beginning with Adam Smith (actually well before that), the most enlightened thinkers understood that economic regularities exist apart from human will; they are forces, or laws, generated by intrinsic features of human action, particularly exchange. It is not a social convention that, for example, when the supply of a good increases relative to demand (other things equal), the price falls, and vice versa. Nor is it a convention that when demand for a good rises relative to supply (other things equal), the price increases. It is the result of the logic of choice, which has been the mainline of economic thinking for hundreds of Progressives in American believe in money magic PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE26 000EBQZ LLC CARPET CARE COMPLETE CARPET CARE COMPLETE CARPET CARE COMPLETE CARPET CARE Lic & Ins Specializing in: Carpet Stretching Carpet Repair Specializing in: Carpet Stretching Carpet Repair C ARPET & U PHOLSTERY C LEANING 352-282-1480 cell 352-547-1636 office Free In Home Estimates Lifetime Warranty 5 R OOMS & H ALLWAY $ 79 95 LAWN SERVICE 000EGK2 CROUCH Lawn Service No Wait at Great Rates Hedging and Weed Pulling up to 3 hrs $115 352-804-5630 000EE5F IRRIGATION LLC.

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, are the foundations of social media. Together, these sites have made it possible for social networking to really take hold and take off. As with any popular platform, you start to see trends that are evident across all networks. One of the most popular trends is the use of the hashtag (#). But what exactly is it, and can your company use it? The hashtag (#), commonly referred to on telephone systems as the pound key, is a character first used by users of the popular social network Twitter. According to the help forum on Twitter, It is used to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet. It was created organically by Twitter users as a way to categorize messages. Look at nearly any Twitter message and there will usually be hashtags attached. If you were to search for the term e.g., #Cloudbackup on Twitter, you would get a list of all tweets that have mentioned the above example. When Twitter talks about a trending topic it means a subject that has become popular. This way of categorization has become so popular amongst Twitter users that its starting to spill over onto the other networks. Instagram for instance has given members the ability to add hashtags to pictures, so that they can be added to groups which can subsequently be searched for. Even Google has gotten in on the act, with Google+ and YouTube both supporting this system. With Facebook, the hashtag has come to give context to a status. Youve probably seen some status updates such as: I love Mondays #sarcasm #bored. This should be read with a sarcastic and slightly bored tone. Because of the usefulness of the hashtag, some users have become overzealous in their use. Reading a Tweet that says #Friday is #awesome, here comes a #fun #weekend. just looks unprofessional and could put off followers. While effective, there are some basic rules you should follow to help get the most out of your hashtags. Heres four. No long hashtags. Hashtags are meant to be short and associated with one word. Dont make the mistake of adding more than about two words together, as the likelihood of users finding the tag will decrease. e.g., #Cloudservicesareawesome should be avoided, use #cloudservices instead. Minimize their use. It can be tempting to hashtag every keyword in messages, however makes them look weird, while decreasing their readability. It is a good idea to limit use to one or two per message. The hashtag is special. Dont use it for everyday words. Instead use it for product names, or a special part of the announcement. Remember that you dont have to use hashtags in every message. Check out Samsung Mobiles Twitter feed to see a good example of proper use. Use a unique hashtag. If you can, try to use a unique hashtag, something that followers will be able to associate and relate to you. The key here is that when its used, the user is referred to you, and only you. Do a quick search on Twitter for the hashtag you would like to use, to ensure its not taken. Many companies will shorten their tag to initials or a shorter term, which is perfectly acceptable. Hashtags, when used correctly, can be a great way to build brand identity and increase social media presence.

Our dual enrollment programs allow high school students to obtain college credit prior to graduation. Serving our students through dual enrollment is a testament to the strength of Floridas seamless education system. All 28 FCS institutions have dual enrollment programs that enrolled 50,054 students in 2011-12. The FCS is the states leading provider of dual enrollment opportunities, serving 83 percent of dual enrollment students. Through the grant, all FCS institutions will have access to the Florida Dual Enrollment Springboard. The College of Central Florida will develop the springboard through collaboration with the Florida Department of Education, Florida colleges and school districts to include a comprehensive website, two sets of professional development tutorials and resources, and a student success preparation kit. The springboard will be available later this year. The Florida Dual Enrollment Springboard and legislative recognition of the cost and value of dual enrollments will go a long way toward greater acceleration of student learning and degree completions in Florida, said Dr. Jim Henningsen, College of Central Florida president. We see dual enrollment as an important part of our overall efforts to achieve more for students and for Florida. The Florida Dual Enrollment Springboard will be an invaluable tool for educators and administrators in Floridas public schools and the Florida College System, said Florida College System Chancellor Randy Hanna. Floridas students will benefit from increased collaboration and support services that will improve their success in dual enrollment courses. I commend the College of Central Florida on its strong proposal and look forward to the statewide release of the springboard. DUALCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Install high-efficiency showerheads, faucets and toilets. OutdoorCheck your homes irrigation system for leaks to save up to 6,300 gallons of water per month. Turn off your homes irrigation system and only water as needed; save up to 2,000 gallons each time a watering day is skipped. Dont leave sprinklers unattended. Use a kitchen timer to remind yourself to turn sprinklers off. Use a hose with a shutoff nozzle when washing the car to save around 40 gallons per wash. Consider installing a rain barrel with a drip irrigation system for watering your landscaping. Rainwater is free and better for your plants because it doesnt contain hard minerals. Leaks are the biggest water waster, both inside and outside of your home. You can use your water meter to check for leaks. Turn off all faucets and water-using appliances and make sure no one uses water during the testing period. Remember to wait for the hot water heater and ice cube makers to refill and for regeneration of water softeners. Go to your water meter and record the current reading. Wait 30 minutes. (Remember: no water should be used during this period.) Read the meter again. If the reading has changed, you have a leak.

Governor Rick Scott said, A great education is critical to providing students job opportunities after graduation, which is why my budget invests $1.1 billion for Florida colleges. Its through innovations like the $10K Degree Challenge that the Florida College System helps Florida families pursue their dreams. View the Governors proclamation about FCS Month. The primary mission of the FCS is to provide access to high-quality affordable education that prepares students for continued education or jobs. Floridas 28 colleges operate 181 sites throughout the state and serve nearly a million Floridians. Colleges offer a dyCommunity College Month observed namic array of educational opportunities, including adult education, developmental education, vocational certificates, associate and baccalaureate degrees, and community education. Here are a few FCS highlights: The FCS is proud to serve all students: 63 percent are part-time, 55 percent are minority, 59 percent are female, and the average student age is 26. Two-thirds of high school graduates enrolling in postsecondary education in Florida enroll in the FCS. Through Floridas strong 2+2 articulation system, FCS associate in arts graduates are guaranteed admission into one of the great state universities in Florida. Fiftyfour percent of juniors and seniors in state universities transferred from the FCS. One-hundred percent of FCS institutions that offer bachelors degrees have accepted Governor Rick Scotts challenge to work to develop bachelors degrees costing students no more than $10,000. Eighty-eight percent of FCS graduates are continuing their education or employed within one year of graduation. The average starting salary of FCS bachelors degree graduates is $46,186. The average starting salary of FCS associate in science degree graduates is $44,095. years, Peter Boettke writes in his new book, Living Economics. To hold otherwise is to believe that a society could have generated other norms, under which, say, a fall in supply relative to demand caused prices to drop, or a fall in demand relative to supply caused prices to rise. But it is not by social agreement that those things never happen. As the great Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises wrote, The development of economics did more to transform human thinking than any other scientific theory before or since. Up to that time it had been believed that no bounds other than those drawn by the laws of nature circumscribed the path of acting man. It was not known that there is still something more that sets a limit to political power beyond which it cannot go. Now it was learned that in the social realm too there is something operative which power and force are unable to alter and to which they must adjust themselves if they hope to achieve success, in precisely the same way as they must take into account the laws of nature. Disbelief in economic laws that operate independently of human will is the sign of a primitive mind. No one has a good excuse for believing that government can create real wealth simply by creating money. The value of money is not determined by social convention. It is determined by supply and demand. When the central bank creates money, it doesnt create useful goods. It may merely shift purchasing power from the people to the Treasury or to special interests. That is, inflation is a form of theft.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation (www.fff.org) in Fairfax, Va. RICHMANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 24 Play scheduled at West PortMarion County Center for the Arts Omega Theatre Company will present the musical Smile April 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m. and April 21 at 2 p.m. at the West Port High School Performing Arts Center, located at 3733 S.W. 80th Ave. in Ocala. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and senior citizens. Tickets will be available at the door or in advance at www.westportwolfpack.org. With music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Howard Ashman, Smile was inspired by the 1975 film of the same name, directed by Michael Ritchie with a screenplay by Jerry Belson. The musical depicts the offstage difficulties of the fictitious 1985 California Young American Miss beauty pageant held in Santa Rosa, California. Students Amanda Glenn and Savannah Hirst portray two contestants who befriend each other throughout the pageant. Krystal Ortega plays the pageant coordinator, Brenda DiCarlo Freelander, and Keaton Long takes on the role of her beleaguered husband, Big Bob Freelander.

Easter event at Tuscawilla draws a crowd The Easter Bunny brought beautiful weather to the area for the 14th annual Easter egg hunt at Tuscawilla Park. The day started off cool but warmed up quickly and a nice breeze came after lunchtime. Besides the Easter egg hunt, many other activities were available at no charge. Food vendors were available also. Some of the other activities were pony rides, face painting, egg coloring, and swings on a well padded surface. The egg hunt for different age levels was held across the street from the other activities. A popular activity was coloring eggs.
