These were some of the words that were used to describe the fully-cooked baby back ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community during last falls rib event. Happily, on Saturday May 4 starting at 10 a.m., the tent at the Bank of the Ozarks on State Road 200 and Southwest 99th Street will be back with the purpose of raising funds to allow the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest to support the College of Central Florida Nursing Scholarship Program and other local and international projects. A full rack of smoke-cooked baby back ribs costs only $18 if you prepay and pick up your order before 12:30 p.m. The cost is $20 for racks that are not prepaid. It is highly recommended to pre-order and to get there early (if you dont preorder) before the ribs are gone! Before cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. Rotary President Beverly Wise says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret thats as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe. Youll need to eat the Rotarys baby back ribs to experience the great taste. If you want to place your ribs in the freezer and eat them later, reheating directions are included with your wrapped order. Pre-paid tickets are being sold by members of the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest. The Club meets on Tuesdays at 7:45 a.m. in suite 240 in the Doctors Office Building at the West Marion Community Hospital. You can also buy tickets at Integrity Home Health Care on Southwest 103 Street and at several locations along State Route 200 including the Bank of the Ozarks, Alarion Bank, Coldwell Banker/Ellison Realty, the law office of W.E. Bishop Jr. and M&S Bank on College Road. For more information, visit the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest Facebook page or call W. E Bishop Jr. at 352-237-9225.

They receive more than three months of training, and their work is constantly reviewed and critiqued because how they respond at the other end of the line in any given situation can mean life or death, he added. Obtaining the re-certification is a process that takes several months and requires the communications center to score a 95 percent or better in 20 categories that ensure dispatchers are asking the right questions, providing a high level of medical and emergency assistance via phone, participate in continuing education and more. The NAED determines whether these and other parameters have been met by reviewing 911 calls and reports at random. All call-takers and dispatchers at the center are trained to handle fire, medical and law enforcement calls, which saves time during emergencies as well as tax-payer dollars. Having cross-trained call-takers allows calltakers to eliminate reasking three questions, which creates a time-savings of 25 to 30 seconds per call, said Oltz. Its something were proud of being able to react 20 seconds quicker in an emergency situation is a big deal, he added. Moreover, the Communications Center doesnt stop at maintaining a high-level of competency it aims to save taxpayers money as well. The current center was established in 2010 and brought Marion County Fire Rescue and the Marion County Sheriffs Office 911 dispatchers and call-takers from their respective agencies together in the same building. In October 2012, Ocala Fire Rescue joined them in a collaborative agreement that will save local taxpayers more than $395,000 during the 2012-2013 fiscal year alone.

Friday, April 19, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, April 19, 2013 There are a lot of people who arent going to like my philosophy on the recent legislative gambling rulings, including some who work with me but here goes. The Legislature adopted, and the governor signed, a ban on socalled Internet cafes in Florida. The bill was a knee-jerk reaction (which is never good) to the recent raids and arrests on one caf provider who was once linked to Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, who subsequently resigned. (Be honest, now, before all this broke, how many of you knew the lieutenant governors name?) However, while I personally am in favor of shutting these places down, because no good can come from them and many of the people who patronize these businesses are those who can least afford it, I think this bill is hypocritical, at best, on several fronts. If gambling is illegal, why, when some of these cafes were raided a while back, werent patrons arrested? If its illegal to run a gambling house, its also illegal to gamble. If not, leave the business and patrons alone. Down in Seminole County last week, they raided a house in Longwood that was allegedly the center of an international gambling ring. As of that night, some overseas websites were still taking bets through that ring on that nights NBA basketball games. Trouble is, all the owners have to do is move to some offshore island, and it will still be on the Internet, and people will go on gambling, whether the state likes it or not. Getting back to the cafes, who is the biggest beneficiary of the shutdown of all these businesses? Of course, its the state-run Florida Lottery, which has more gambling than all of these Internet cafes put together. Those who are older can remember the days of the numbers racket. For those who are younger, that was very similar to the lotterys Cash 3. People bet, often with unsavory looking characters or with runners in their place of employment, on a threedigit number. The nearest horse racing facility was usually used. Tracks reported their handle daily, thats the amount of money bet on the horses that day. The last three digits were the number, and if you hit the number you won. Sounds like the lottery, doesnt it? When the lottery took effect, organized crimes numbers racket went away, or at least was diminished. But if the Internet cafes are gambling, why isnt the lottery considered gambling? Why is one legal and the other isnt? Why was the numbers racket illegal and the lottery isnt? Shouldnt we be consistent and ban all gambling? So heres my thought. Lets either make all gambling illegal, or lets make it all legal. That includes horse racing, jai alai, dog tracks, etc. Dont be hypocritical and ban one type of betting while keeping another in business. Ive never been in an Internet caf, but Ive played the lottery, as, I expect, have many of you. Fortunately, Ive never gotten to the addictive point, and I hope I never do. You folks should examine yourselves, too. If you cant get along without placing a bet on something, somewhere, maybe its time to visit Gamblers Anonymous. When I say all gambling, Im including casinos, which are owned by Native Americans and are exempt from state law.

The images were seen all Monday afternoon and evening the bombs exploding, the man falling in the middle of the street, the anguished looks on the faces of witnesses, the blood on people being led into ambulances, the boy being wheeled away with a bandage on his leg, etc., etc., etc. When you woke up Tuesday morning, there they were again, the same images, repeated over and over. You know, somewhere, some terrorist or terrorists were sitting back watching all this unfold, enjoying the handiwork of their comrades, enjoying the suffering of Americans. Dont the networks realize this? Do they have to show the grief again and again? Isnt this giving aid and comfort to the enemy? Yes, the news has to be reported. But for how long, and how repetitively? Evidently the time of day played a part. Networks were quick to jump into local stations time and preempt talk shows, quiz shows, local news, etc. But once you got to prime time, you know, where the money is made, shows like Dancing With The Stars and The Voice went on as scheduled. Go back a couple of weeks to the gruesome leg injury of Kevin Ware, basketball player for the University of Louisville. After the initial showing of what happened, nearly every report we saw put a blurry circle over his leg so that the actual injury, a compound fracture where the bone was sticking out, couldnt be seen. Networks said they were being sensitive about the injury in respect to Ware and his relatives, and because the injury was so terrible. So is a bombing less terrible? Showing the faces of people with blood streaming from injuries doesnt deserve the same sensitivity as a broken leg? Showing a man turning slowly and then collapsing in the middle of the street isnt painful to his family? The networks also were guilty of providing misinformation on the fly. They always use the disclaimer, Weve been told but we cant confirm that. Still, they put the unsubstantiated rumors out there, which does a disservice to all. For example, there was an explosion at a nearby library, then there wasnt an explosion; there were 120 people hurt, then there were 70, then it was over 100 again; there were three unexploded devices found, then there were none, then there were two that were detonated by police, then it turns out they were not bombs; cell phone service was cut off to avoid remote detonation of additional bombs, then it was restored (Sprint and Verizon both said that their cell phone service was never interrupted). So now we wait for the follow-ups, possible arrests, etc. There is no doubt that the explosions were another in a long list of terrorist tragedies. There is also no doubt that, for a while, we will be inundated with rumors and unconfirmed facts. We just need to accept that there are bad people in the world, and we need to be ever vigilant to lessen their impact on society. And we dont need the networks to tell us that. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Aid and comfort to the enemy? If its all gambling, shut it all down Cuts are hurting our warfighting capabilities READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY MIKE EMIGThere is a big debate going on in this country on the size of the budget and the national debt. Each service will be taking a hard look at what programs to cut. Already due to cuts caused by the sequester, weve seen airshow participation cut, travel cut, civilian furloughs and recently, the stand down of 17 combat squadrons due to conserve flying hours for those units about to deploy and those in combat zones. DOD can only reduce the overhead costs of administration, maintenance, and medical by cutting into warfighting capabilities. We have a national debt standing at nearly $12 Trillion dollars and growing every day, and expected to be $21 Trillion dollars by the end of this decade. We all have to make tough choices but we have to make smart ones as we drawdown the military and our forces. What programs do we cut or cancel? We fly tankers more than 50 years old. How much longer can we delay replacing them? Our fighters are on average 25 years old and are reaching the end of their life cycles. How much longer can we expect our men and women to fly aircraft that may break up in flight? Can we really afford to shortchange our nations defense? Defense spending seems high considering weve been fighting two wars and supporting an all volunteer force but defense spending is still only roughly 4 percent of GDP It was at 35 percent during World War II and 9 percent during the Cold War. Defense spending reigned during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. In 1970, total defense spending was 8.1 percent of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) more than twice the 3.8 percent spent on the big three entitlement programs but starting in 1971, entitlement spending surpassed defense and today stands at over 13 percent of GDP Entitlement spending is on the road to absorbing more of the federal budget as the baby boom generation retires and ages. The result is that eventually, this will crowd out defense spending and limit what the government can provide in military and economic growth. At the end of the Cold War in 1991, recapitalization funds were taken to pay for a peace dividend. New equipment planned and programmed were eventually bought in small numbers while other programs were delayed. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan further delayed recapitalization to the point that perhaps not long from now the U.S. may undergo disarmament by default. Something none of our enemies could accomplish. One of the primary responsibilities of Congress, according to the U.S. Constitution, section 8, is to provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States. Unless Congress reins in spending it will find itself unable to live up to its responsibilities under the constitution and we will find our military a hollow force when well need it the most.Mike Emig is a member of the Air Force Association (AFA) in Ocala.

Showcase of Stars: Bringing in the spring on April 27 Oak Run Carol Wheeler Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, Texas Governor Rick Perry, Florida Governor Rick Scott and Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant are calling on Congress to allow the states to take control over management of the red snapper fishery in the Gulf of Mexico. In a letter to Congressional leadership, the governors declared federal fisheries management irretrievably and seek passage of legislation that would reverse a situation that is negatively impacting the coastal economies and citizens of the Gulf Coast. After three decades under ineffective federal management, our citizens are left with a 9-day season for this iconic fish, and that is just an unacceptable outcome. Our own Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has worked constructively with user groups like the Coastal Conservation Association and shown how proper management can foster our wildlife resources to be vibrant economic engines for Louisiana, Governor Governors call for state control of Red Snapper Fishery Jindal said. We should not have to settle for overarching, sub-par management of these resources by the federal government. The Gulf states have all proven they can do a far better job not only creating healthy fisheries, but providing greater access to them for our citizens. We are calling on Congress to give us the opportunity to do so. Governor Scott said, As one of the top fishing destinations in the world, no one understands Florida fisheries better than state and local communities. The current unilateral, regulatory framework administered by the federal government for Red Snapper lacks flexibility and has undermined the expertise of our state fishery officials and local fishing communities. State officials, working in partnership with local communities are far better suited for protecting Red Snapper, while providing local economies with reasonable standards that allow families to pursue jobs in Florida's bountiful waters. 000EHTA 000EKPA 000EJMB Representing Ocala area residents for over 40 years The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements Before you decide, ask us to send free written information about our qualifications and experience. 237-9225 W.E.

No, we arent talking about the 2012 box office flop staring Kevin James as a teacher turned MMA fighter in hopes of saving his schools music program. No, the boom in this case is the annual Dunnellon Boomtown Days, a two-day festival in the heart of the Downtown Historic District. The event, which runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, celebrates the towns mining roots in the 1800s. During that period, Dunnellon was one of the fastest growing cities in the state thanks in large part to the discovery of phosphate. Entry fee is $2 for those 13 and older each day; those 12 and younger are free. A portion of this years gate receipts will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Dunnellon. Its going great, said Beverly Leisure, the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerces executive director, about last-minute preparations. Everything is just hurry up, but everything just falls into place. As is customary, the mayor of Dunnellon will announce the winner of this years Boomtown Mayor race between Justin Yancey and Vicki Leonard. Each participant in the race for Boomtown mayor garners votes for $1 each, and whoever collects the most money is declared the winner. Leisure said the entertainment line-up and schedBoomtown Days are Saturday and Sunday in Dunnellon ule is complete, and features a variety of something for everyone. Among those slated to perform include 16-year-old Cote Deonath, an Elvis tribute artist. He is likely better known as Little Elvis, but hes not so little anymore Leisure said of the Dunnellon High sophomore who made his first appearance on the Boomtown Stage at the age of 5. Hes wonderful, she said. Hes a great performer and I think the crowds are going to love him and, of course, some of the old ladies will just go crazy. In addition to Deonaths appearance both days, the Dunnellon High Band as well as the DHS Concert and Jazz Bands will perform Saturday. Other well-known acts and individuals set to perform during the weekend include the Dane Myers Band, featuring 19-yearold Dane Myers, and Lee Britt, a popular singer/musician from Ocala, who recently performed at Cracker Days at Rainbow Springs State Park. In addition to the bevy of musical talent, the annual Little Mr. and Miss Dunnellon pageant will begin at 10:30 a.m. Saturday on the Main Stage behind First Reality of Dunnellon. This years event features six contestants vying for crowns. Thats one of my favorites, Leisure said about the Little Mr. & Miss Dunnellon pageant. (The kids) are just so cute. Its fun to watch, and Lydia (Mills) has done a great job of preparing the kids and getting them ready for the event. Despite the musical acts and pageant, there will be plenty for everyone to take in during the weekend, which Leisure said the weather should be perfect for. The forecast calls for highs to be in the 80s both days, with a modest 10 percent of rain. There will be numerous vendors selling arts, crafts and, of course, food, plenty of food, Leisure added. Several organizations will have informational booths set up. Additionally, there will be a large Kids Zone this year with the addition of a Midway, which will provide carnival-type games for youths to participate in. There will also be rides set up. Weve really tried to add more stuff for children, Leisure said. This really is a family friendly event; were making sure there is something for everyone to do. We know families really enjoy coming out. Leisure praised local businesses, which really rose to the occasions. Theyve been excellent with their sponsorships, donations and their overall support of the event, she explained. The businesses really came forward, like they always do. Through it all, Leisure said the most pivotal aspect of making Boomtown Days Dunnellon possible is the work of the volunteers who spend months helping gather entertainment, vendors and other essential components of the annual festival. There will be more activities for children this year. 3 5 2 4 6 5 7 5 3 8 352-465-7538 20312 E. Pennsylvania Ave. www.bluerunbicycles.com Featuring Bikes For Every Rider!

Friday, April 19, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, April 19, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Airport towerI was recently advised of your editorial regarding the FAAs proposal to close 149 control towers, including the one at the Ocala Airport. Having read the editorial, I was compelled to provide some additional background information for your readers, as well as to correct a few of your assumptions. Flightaware.com is a fantastic tool to predict arrival and departure traffic, however it does not provide the entire picture. Aircraft owners who do not wish to have their information made available have their aircraft flights blocked from view. Additionally, Flightaware.com only shows aircraft that have filed flight plans citing Ocala as a destination or origination. It does not include the thousands of recreational flyers that do not file flight plans. The FAAs methodology to determine the closure list lacked depth or an individual airport operational assessment. They drew a line and determined any tower with annual operations of less than 150,000 will close. Our view is it isnt as simple as a numbers assessment; each airport is different. For instance, in Ocala there is such a diverse fleet mix of aircraft you see large air carrier aircraft such as Boeing 757s or fast business jets operating in the same airspace as many small slower training aircraft. The difference in these operating speeds combined with our total annual operations are the main reasons the FAA justified this control tower just four years ago, but now they want to close it based on an arbitrary number, and without specific research. For Ocala, the control tower provides a step to the next stage of growth for the airport. It, along with the other infrastructure improvements on and around the airport, combines to provide a catalyst of opportunity for new or expanding business for our community. We are working with other affected airports, our congressional representatives, and industry leaders on saving the contract tower system. However, it appears that Ocalas control tower will cease operations on June 15. From June 16 and beyond, airplanes will still land and take off at the Ocala International Airport. Although the absence of a tower diminishes operational effectiveness, it does not make the airport unsafe. The airport successfully LETTERS TO THE EDITOR operated as a non-towered airport for 48 years (from 1962 to 2010), and it can successfully operate as a non-towered airport in the future. I encourage citizens to contact their respective Congressional representatives and urge them to find sensible cuts that do not impact our Nations infrastructure. Matthew Grow Airport DirectorFirst tolerance, then acceptanceOne bite at a time is how we describe how to eat an elephant, the same applies to how to bring about the destruction of America, little by little, one bite at a time. What one generation tolerates, the next accepts. This did not start with Obama, although he is pushing hard to fundamentally change America as stated in his campaign. I still question why no one pressed him on just what he had in mind, just what needs drastic changing? Why did Michelle state this is the first time she has been proud of America? No one asked for answers! Regretfully, we have been destroying our core values since the s beginning with allowing our courts to take student prayer out of our schools. We sat back and let it happen and they have been going downhill ever since. Too many now want God out of our lives and our decision making, moving the accepted norm in nearly all areas of our life, including the family. The traditional family is under constant attack and over half our newborns are illegitimate, being raised in fatherless homes. Having babies without the benefit of wedlock is now widely accepted and of course the tax payer picks up most of the tab. This can be verified by Munroe Hospital. The movement is now on to redefine marriage, pushing us to the mindset of Sodom, letting government decide what is right or wrong. Sin is sin, God is still God and he doesnt change. God determines what is right and wrong and if we insist on taking him out of our lives, out of our decisions, we are inviting him to remove his blessings from America. When he does, America will surely fall! God, being righteous, will discipline our disobedience and it wont be pleasant. If I wanted to destroy America, I would do the following: change our value system through the destruction of our morals, removing God from our lives; destroy our capitalist system through massive debt; decimate our health care system (Obama Care); create a welfare society that is dependent on government ; fan the fires of class warfare and bite by bite, disarm our citizens. Lastly, I would take over the education of our children, from a very early age so they could be indoctrinated into my way of thinking. In other words, exactly what Obama is trying to do! Thats why I and so many others that love America and have faith in God dislike Obama. We dont need another reason, thats reason enough! Wayne Rackley Oak Run PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE23 LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 Florida?Three turtles, two large ones and a little one, went to a bar to quench their thirst. Each ordered a drink. Then one of the large turtles commented that it was raining and that the little turtle should go home for an umbrella. The little turtle objected because he feared the two big turtles would take his drink while he was gone. But the big turtles convinced the little one that they would not take his drink, and he started after the umbrella. Two weeks passed, and finally one of the big turtles said, Lets have the little guys drink. Ive been thinking the same thing, said the other, so thats just what well do. From down at the end of the bar near the door, a shrill voice cried, If you do, I wont go after that umbrella.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. PUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 21 RECONTRUCTING AMELIA By Kimberly McCreight Practicing attorney and harried single mother Kate Baron is shocked when her daughter Amelias tony private school in Brooklyn calls to tell her that her child is being suspended for cheating. Kate finds the news puzzling on many levels. Amelia is a straight A over-achiever who doesnt need to cheat and the idea that she would plagiarize a paper on Virginia Woolf is ludicrous. Amelia is something of an expert on that author. Even so, Kate has been summoned to Grace Hall to collect her daughter. When she arrives an hour later from her mid-town law firm the scene is chaotic with emergency vehicles and police everywhere. The situation, it seems, is far more dire than the telephone call suggested. Amelia, shes told, is dead as a result of a spontaneous suicide brought on by the disgrace; at least thats what Grace Hall and police surmise. They explain that after being accused of cheating Amelia fled to the schools roof and jumped. Thus begins a novel that will haunt you beyond the last page. McCreight exposes the dark heart of some American teenagers whose mean-girl politics is enhanced by modern technology. Hers is a tale of secret highschool societies, relentless bullying, and sexual awakening. Though still believing that a mistake had been made about the cheating, Kate tries to accept Amelias death. Then she receives an anonymous cryptic text message: She didnt jump. Thats all Kate needs to turn from litigating to sleuthing and reconstructing her daughters last days and hours. She begins by sifting through Amelias e-mails, text messages, social media postings and cell phone logs. Little by little she learns that her daughter experienced secrets and lies, a first love, and betrayal by trusted friends. Told in alternating voices of mother and daughter the story is about how well a parent can ever really know a child. In Kates case its also a story about how far a mother will go to vindicate the life of a daughter she was powerless to save. How well does a parent know his children?

I have dreams of times when everything goes perfect. Then, I awake to the reality of the world around me. I guess everybody dreams of at least one perfect day. Last week my dream came true... or almost. For no apparent reason I awoke from sleep feeling quite happy. I had no explanation for this giggly feeling of mine. I do not normally rouse myself from sleep with a chipper attitude. Just ask my wife. On second thought, dont. I just was in such a good mood that I broke out into song, which my wife threatened to end my life if I did not stop it immediately. I did not try to psychoanalyze myself and think that perhaps this was the beginning of senility or something. I just accepted it as a great day to be alive. One of my basic philosophies of life is, dont look a gift horse in the mouth; after all, he might have bad breath. This particular day nothing could bring me back to earth. I was all but literally dancing on the clouds and I cannot dance. But it was a good day to be alive and know it. Very nonchalantly, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage addressed me in a rather semi-informal manner. Would you run to the store and get me something? Being in such a high spirit, I sang my affirmative answer to her in spite of her glaring in my direction. I did not care. I would have jumped over the moon if she had asked at the time. Lucky for me, she did not ask. I was in such a good mood that I thought a shopping trip would be OK. Let it be known that when it comes to shopping, shopping and I go together like peanut butter and lobster tail. It was such a wonderful day and I felt so terrific I agreed to go shopping for my wife. Not that I needed a new wife, the one I have is fine, thank you. When I entered the store, I had a nagging feeling that something was wrong. Being in such a great mood that I was in, I shook it off and rebuked it firmly. In record time, I found the item my wife needed. Dancing and singing up the aisle, I went immediately to the checkout counter. When I got there, I found nobody there. On the counter was a bell and next to the bell, a sign that read, Ring bell for cashier. Being in such a great mood, I rang the bell to the tune of the song I was singing at the time. After all, happy is as happy shares, and I had my share of happiness at the time. Then I heard it. All right, growling from the back of the store, I heard ya. Ill be there when I get there. If I would have stopped there, it might not have gotten out of hand. Being in the goosy-kind of mood I was in, I had to take it one step further. I stared at the bell until I could stare no more and then I broke out into song accompanied by the cashiers bell. I wish you could have been there, it was spectacular. I heard you the first time, the voice exploded from the back of the store. Ill get there when I get there and not a second sooner. I smiled to myself and reminded myself that nobody was going to spoil my mood of happiness today. Then I saw her stomping up the aisle toward the cashier counter where I was waiting. If looks could kill, and I am not so sure they cant, I would have died on the spot. I do not think steam was coming out her ears, but I am not absolutely sure about that. I know there was fire in her eyes, which were focused in my direction like a laser beam. When she got to the counter she growled, Are you the one ringing the bell? With my finger on the bell, and nobody else in the store, it was hard to answer in the negative. In fact, it was hard for me to say anything while she was looking at me the way she was looking at me. She stared for a moment, at least it was something close to a stare that burrowed itself deep into my soul and that goosy-kind of feeling evaporated.

James Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE20 BY ABDON SIDIBE Citrus County Chronicle Lauren Book is a foot soldier trying to spread awareness and education about the shame-riddled and confusing world of child sexual abuse. Book, 27, is a survivor of prolonged childhood sexual abuse at the hands of a nanny and has made it her lifes mission to spread the word about sexual offenders. She is traversing the state, launching her fourth annual 1,500-mile Walk in My Shoes education and awareness campaign. The walking events, which will take Book from Key West to Tallahassee, will culminate with a rally April 23 at the states historic Capitol building. Wednesday, Book stopped in Citrus and Marion counties to discuss preventing child sexual abuse. Book told her story of abuse and triumph. She also wrote a memoir called Its OK to Tell spelling out the details of her exploitation, which began at age 10 and went on until she was 16. Book told of how she endured daily sexual and physical abuse at the hands of the nanny in her own home. This went on 365 days, she said. Book said as a child she was eager to please, and her abuser targeted her rather than her two siblings because of this. She said the nanny, like most predators, was very crafty, especially when it came to physical abuse. Book said the nanny hit her, threw her down stairs and bruised me where my parents wouldnt look. In 2001, Book, at the urging of a boyfriend and after six years of enduring the nannys abuse, confessed to a therapist who told Books parents. The nanny was fired and authorities moved to make an arrest, but Books abuser fled to Oklahoma, where she was found coaching girls soccer. She was arrested a month later. Books father, Ron Book, is a wellknown South Florida attorney and lobbyist. The nanny eventually went to prison, but continued writing letters to Book. With the help of her father, Book helped shepherd several child sex abuse laws through the Legislature, including one that bars convicted abusers from contacting their victims. Books nanny got an extra 10 years in prison for continuing to contact her. Her other legislative and advocacy accomplishments include: Securing the right of victims to have access to a predators HIV test results within 48 hours of request. A ban on molesters from ever contacting their victims or families. Creation of a statewide network of sexual assault treatment centers. Enactment of a law that bars predators from living within 2,500 feet of public places where children gather, such as schools, parks and playgrounds. Book also travels to schools and gives talks to advocacy groups about the best ways to spread word about how to empower children to detect and reveal predators. Believe in the child, Book said. Keep them loved and safe. Try to build that child up. For more information about Books work, visit laurenskids.org.

Friday, April 19, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, April 19, 2013 www.smcitizen.com It was an event that happened forty years ago this month and it was to change the way we communicated with each other forever. It was invented by Martin Cooper, a scientist with Motorola who believed we should all be able to carry our phones with us wherever we went. With the walkie-talkie as an inspiration, the cell phone was born. The original portable handset device weighed 2.5 pounds and was 9x5.1.75 inches. You could talk for a whole 35 minutes without a charge (about the time it takes today to get connected to your credit card company) but charging the phone would take you 10 hours. It was a primitive device by todays standards and even the most technologychallenged amongst us could probably figure it out for all it did was talk, listen and dial. Youve come a long way baby! Pushing back in time to the Biblical era, approximately 3,500 years ago, we find communications to be a very different matter. Of course there were signal fires built on hilltops to announce the sighting of the new moon for ritual purposes and the messengers that rode from place to place or the assembly of the people announced by the blowing of the shofar (rams horn) but no cell phones of course. When it came for God to communicate with the patriarchs, prophets or ancient Israelites, different methods were employed. God visits Abraham with visions in which he is told of Gods promises that his descendants will be as numerous as the stars and as the sands on the beach. He is also assured that his progeny will inherit a land. Abraham is also privy to the impending destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah as well as his wifes, Sarah, pregnancy despite her advanced age. This time God uses three angels in the guise of men to inform Abraham of his intentions. Actually the Bible states that the angels were strangers, which Abraham shows great hospitality to. Commentators on the passage have deduced that the men were angels. (Gen. 18:2) Later on in the book of Genesis when Abraham is about to sacrifice his son Isaac to God, he hears a voice from Heaven instructing him to sacrifice a ram instead. Jacob, the patriarch, receives divine communication in the form of a dream. In the famous Bible tale, he dreams of a ladder reaching to Heaven with angels traveling down and up. But while his dad had dreams, it was his son, Joseph that became a dream interpreter. When his brothers have dreams, Joseph correctly interprets them to the dismay of his siblings. He tells them that one-day they will all bow down to him. Letting sibling rivalry take the lead, the brothers sell Joseph off as a slave to a caravan of Midianites. Through divine communication, Joseph is able to interpret the dreams of the Pharaoh and thus becomes second in command to Pharaoh. And yes, his brothers do eventually bow down to him when they come to Egypt seeking food due to a famine in Canaan. Up to now, God has communicated to certain individuals through visions, dreams, angels or by a voice. In the story of Moses, the Deity uses a rather unusual medium, that is, a burning bush. Moses, the soon to be prophet, is a shepherd and he investigates a bush that appears to be on fire but is not consumed. From out of the bush he hears the voice of God telling him to return to Egypt and tell Pharaoh to let My people go. As the book of Exodus unfolds, Moses has more communication with the divine especially when on Mt. Sinai receiving the Ten Commandments. While he longs to see God face to face, the Almighty explains that a human cannot do so and live. He therefore places Moses in a cleft of a rock so that Moses could see his back as his spirit passed. This communication moment in the Bible is a fascinating one for all its implications of divine power and mercy and human longing to communicate with the divine. It is also the first time in history, that a deity reveals himself/herself to an entire nation. Amidst which could have been some kind of volcanic eruption, the Israelite nation receives the divine laws by which they were to live. It is an awe-inspiring event in the history of the Jewish people, so important that to this day, every Jew considers him/herself as being at Mt. Sinai at the time of the giving of the Divine Communication Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI PAGE13 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comClub news and softball make up this weeks OTOW Happenings.New England ClubAt the March meeting of the New England Club, the tables were beautifully decorated in celebration of St. Patricks Day. Refreshments also reflected a St. Patricks Day theme. President Donnamarie listed the total membership by state. All New England states were well represented, with more members from Massachusetts than any of the other states. Matthew Grow, manager of the Ocala International Airport, was the guest speaker. Attendees learned of current issues and future plans for the airport. One concern highlighted was that the control tower might be closed. Mr. Grow, however, stated he did not expect the possible closing to affect the amount of traffic at the airport; alas, it was later announced that the tower will, in fact, be closed. Members donated 84 pairs of crew socks plus $46 for the purchase of additional socks for veterans. The April 18 meeting will be held in the Arbor Club ballroom at 1 p.m. The guest speaker will be a representative from the Sheriff Departments K-9 unit. The final meeting of the season will take place on May 16 and will feature a pizza party. For those who plan to attend the May meeting, please sign up in advance so there is an accurate count so that the correct number of pizzas can be ordered. Coffee is provided by the club; refreshments are provided by club members, but one should bring his or her own water or soda. There is always a 50/50 drawing as well as other opportunities to win door prizes. New members are always welcome, so come join the fun. One does not have to be from New England to join the club; a love of New England is all that is needed. For more information, contact Donnamarie at 207-212-6529.Softball LeagueIts been quite a month at the softball field. These old seniors just dont give up making plays that amaze almost anyone. Forget that the baseball season is upon us. Do you want to see some real players who will add excitement and laughter to your life? Well, come on down any Monday or Wednesday morning and see your neighbors make you feel young again! The WiseWay team continues to hold on to first place but has lost some ground as the Dr. Dunn team has moved into one game of first place. Close behind, though, is a three-way tie for third place, shared by The Cebert Wealth, Tee Pee Tire and Great Clips teams, with only two games behind the first place leader. Its now a toss-up as to who will take over first place. The teams are now readying themselves for the final month of softball. Unfortunately the Overholser team has lost some players and is having a difficult time getting a win, while the Great Clips and Tee Pee Tire, which were headed to the basement a month ago, have suddenly been resurrected and are playing super ball. There are still quite a few games to go, so anything can happen that could change the whole outlook of the standings. For now, though, its a tight race to the finish, and you can see the excitement in the players. Come on down and enjoy the fun.

The manager was shocked! Not only was this a talking horse, but he wanted to play baseball. So he put the horse in the outfield, where the horse caught all the balls hit to him. In the infield, he always made the right play. When it came time to bat in a game, the horse hit a long line drive between the outfielders. But then the horse just stood at the plate. Run! the manager shouted. Run! The horse turned to the manager and said, If I could run, Id be at the race track.How to get alongA husband was having great difficulty getting along with his wife, always arguing and experiencing friction; so he decided to consult a marriage counselor. The counselor said, You should run five miles each day for a week. Then please call me back. A week later the counselor received a call from the husband. Well, asked the counselor, how are things going with you and your wife? How should I know? said the husband. Im 35 miles away.SprintsThe fastest man I know could turn off the light switch on the wall and be in bed before the light went out. Even if you are on the right track, youll get run over if you just sit there. The two little mischievous boys found themselves in a modern art gallery by mistake. Quick, said one, Run! Before they say we did it! The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas. If a blonde throws a pin at you, run, shes got a grenade in her mouth. Well never run out of math teachers because they always multiply. Ive never been pinched for going too fast, but Ive been slapped. An apple a day keeps the doctor away, an onion a day keeps everybody away. If you take a laptop computer for a run you could jog your memory.Fast IndianStopping just outside a bar after a long ride, the Lone Ranger and Tonto discovered Silver swooning from heat exhaustion. The Lone Ranger got the horse water then said, Tonto, I want you to run around Silver as fast as you can and see if you can create enough breeze to help him cool down. Tonto said, Sure, Kemo Sabe. He then began running circles around Silver. Not able to do anything else but wait, the Lone Ranger went in the bar to have a drink. A few minutes later, another cowboy strutted into the bar and asked, Who owns the big white horse outside? The Lone Ranger said, I do. Whats wrong with him this time? The cowboy looked him in the eye and said, Nothing. But you left your Injun runnin.Whiz!An officer interrogating the soldier asked, Did you hear the bullet whiz by you? The soldier said, Twice.

On Saturday, April 13, we held a Bratwurst Roast that was incredible! There was so much delicious food, and great entertainment, that everyone had a wonderful time. Gloria and Oscar, residents of Spruce Creek North, volunteered to play their guitars and sing. As they sang, we all sang along, too. It was stunning to hear all those voices singing old country songs in unison. A huge thank you goes out to all of the volunteers to make this tremendous event happen, but mostly to Paul Roy, for his huge effort to make it all run smoothly. His planning, and supervision made it all happen. Other big helpers included, Dianne and Johnny Pritchett, JoAnne Davidson, Marion Roy, and Ursula and Don Strassel, Chris and Ed Durham, and too many others to mention. The clean up crew was wonderful, too! Thank to all of you for helping to make our community better than ever!Show and Tell and Ice Cream SocialOn April 28 from 1 to 5 p.m., there will be an Ice Cream Social, and a Show and Tell where community members share the things in life they love dearly.

In My OpinionWhen you are lucky enough to live in a beautiful community like Spruce Creek North, it is such a joy to see neighbors gathering together for a good time. The Brat Roast, the dances, and all of the parties for birthdays and just for fun, are what makes our lives interesting. Think about having friends over more frequently, going for a picnic by the pool, or just hanging out with friends at the pool more often. Socializing helps lengthen our lives and makes all of us happier. Even joining a new club, or trying something new will liven up your day, and help keep your brain sharper. Thanks again to all of you that have spruced up your lawns for Spring. This place is becoming a showplace of beautiful flowers and greenery!Sweet Potato Pineapple Casserole Submitted by Cindy HutchinsIngredients Casserole 16 medium sweet potatoes, cut in half and quartered 2 cups crushed pineapple 11/2 cups sugar 6 tbsp butter, melted 2 tsp salt 2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/4 tsp ground allspice 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg 4 eggs Topping 1/2 cup brown sugar 2 tbsp butter melted 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup pecans or walnuts chopped Directions PREHEAT the oven to 350 degrees.

Did you ever have a day when you felt like crawling into a groundhog hole and hiding until next February? On my way home from the store I thought about what David said in Psalm 23. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me... I can endure anything and anybody as long as God is with me. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. SNYDERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Torah. Further on in the Hebrew Scriptures, we find God communicating with the prophets. Instead of just narrative events, we now have elaborate visions of the future as well as admonitions against social injustice. Isaiahs famous celestial vision of the heavenly hosts (holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts) is used in both Jewish and Christian liturgy. His cries about the social injustice against the poor and defenseless form the basis for many Jewish charitable acts. The prophet Ezekiel has visions that rival the best Sci-fi flicks. He sees a valley of dry bones that come to life as well as a wheel surrounded by what we might call mythical characters. All sorts of interpretations have been given for these visions as strange as they may seem. But it was Elijah who heard the still small Voice. (2 Kings: 19:11-13.) After a series of natural events, Elijah hears a small murmur which was the voice of God. It is that small voice that each one of us hears which spurs us on to do the righteous acts of love and charity. As for todays cell phones, they can do almost anything as well as making a phone call. If the Almighty would like to communicate with us today, he/she needs only to use the cell phone. In fact there is already a Bible app you can download. Go figure!

We will make arrangements to pick up your items and deliver them to the Ritz House. Thank you for your support. Motorcycle ClubCherrywood is starting a new club for those who love to ride motorcycles. Sunday, April 28 at 6 p.m. there will be an organizational meeting in the Clubhouse and everyone is welcome. You need not be a resident of Cherrywood to participate in what promises to be a fun organization. Plans include rides of one hour or less to various venues including favorite parks; pubs; events and other places of interest to those who enjoy the adventure and fun of riding. You can obtain more information by calling Joe Nesbitt at 352-598-0211 during normal business hours. This organization is free to join and everyones ideas and suggestions will be considered. Bring your enthusiasm for riding and meeting other people with similar interests and come out and join the Cherrywood Motor Cycle Club. Honor FlightHonor Flight is an organization that gives World War II veterans an opportunity to fly to Washington D.C. and experience the wonders of the World War II Memorial. Each veteran is accompanied by a volunteer who pays his or her own way to make sure that the needs of each veteran are met. In addition to the tour of the monuments and museums, most veterans are greeted by VIPs in Washington and enjoy a luncheon. After a full day, these veterans and volunteers are flown home. The program is coming to an end for our area on May 23. On Tuesday, May 23 at 8 p.m. the last Honor Flight will return home to Ocala International airport with its precious cargo of special people; our WW II veterans. The Cherrywood Veterans Club is asking for as many residents as possible to be on hand when the plane touches down to welcome home these heroes. If you can possibly make it on this date and time, contact Bill Mahar at 352-873-1341 to make your reservation. Each member from Cherrywood will be given a small flag to be waved as veterans disembark so to insure that we have enough flags we need to know how many people are going to attend. This is likely the last opportunity we will have as a community to honor and thank those that gave so much for our country. Please dont miss this chance to say thank you to our Greatest GenerationNewcomersIf you are new to the Cherrywood community you wont want to miss this opportunity to be welcomed by your fellow residents at a special coffee hour in your honor. At 10 a.m. on May 18 come to the Clubhouse and enjoy free refreshments; meet many of the people who head up the various activities here at Cherrywood and get brochures; maps and other vital information. Even if you moved in as long ago as a year, and youve never been to a Welcome Committee coffee hour, you are welcome to join us for this event. None of our residents whove attended have ever regretted the hour or so that they spent learning of all that Cherrywood has to offer. Contact Geri to make your reservation for this special function. Everything is free and the information you receive will enhance your life in many ways. We have a very active community and friendly atmosphere. Make your reservation and let us extend the hand of welcome to you. Ladies Traveling PoolAnother season comes to an end for our Ladies Traveling Pool League.

The event, open to the public, will mark the observance of the Jewish holiday of Lag BOmer, which is traditionally commemorated by large outdoor celebrations and bonfires, which harbor spiritual significance. Chabad-Lubavitch, the largest Jewish outreach organization in the world, is hosting thousands of similar Lag BOmer celebrations in cities across the globe. The celebrations all share a common theme: Jewish Unity. Lag BOmer marks the passing nearly two thousand years ago of the great Talmudic sage, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai. He is best known as the author of the Zohar, the fundamental text of the Jewish mystical tradition, the Kabbalah. On the day of his passing, Rabbi Shimon instructed his disciples to mark the date as the day of my joy. The holiday also marks the end of a tragic epidemic which killed 24,000 students of the great Talmudic sage Rabbi Akiva, who served as Rabbi Shimons teacher. On Lag BOmer the dying ceased. Thus Lag BOmer also carries the theme of Ahavat Yisrael, the imperative to love and respect ones fellow. Lag BOmer is literally translated as the 33rd day of the Omer, a period of seven weeks between Passover, which commemorates the Jewish peoples Exodus from Egypt, and Shavout, which commemorates the giving of the Ten Commandments. For more information on The Chabad Jewish Center of Marion Countys Lag BOmer festivities or on the holiday of Lag BOmer and its observances, contact Rabbi Yossi or Chanie at 352-291-2218, email info@JewishMarion.org or visit our website at www.JewishMarion.org.Maranatha Baptist ChurchAs you all know, the last day of school is June 5.

At 7:30, Joe will bring out a majority of dry wines with a few sweet ones brought into the mix for variety. There are still a few tickets left for each of the sessions, although I cant believe that with the people I know here at Cherrywood. Tickets are required but the event is totally free so if you havent got your reservations yet, now is the time to see Geri. Because the seating is limited, if you have a ticket but cannot make it please bring your ticket to Geri to allow someone else to enjoy the wine tasting.Garden ClubCome join the members of the Garden Club on May 15 at 11 in the morning on the patio.

Honor FlightHonor Flight is an organization that gives World War II veterans an opportunity to fly to Washington D.C. and experience the wonders of the World War II Memorial. Each veteran is accompanied by a volunteer who pays his or her own way to make sure that the needs of each veteran are met. In addition to the tour of the monuments and museums, most veterans are greeted by VIPs in Washington and enjoy a luncheon. After a full day, these veterans and volunteers are flown home. The program is coming to an end for our area on May 23. On Tuesday, May 23 at 8 p.m. the last Honor Flight will return home to Ocala International airport with its precious cargo of special people; our WW II veterans. The Cherrywood Veterans Club is asking for as many residents as possible to be on hand when the plane touches down to welcome home these heroes. If you can possibly make it on this date and time, contact Bill Mahar at 352-873-1341 to make your reservation. Each member from Cherrywood will be given a small flag to be waved as veterans disembark so to insure that we have enough flags we need to know how many people are going to attend. This is likely the last opportunity we will have as a community to honor and thank those that gave so much for our country. Please dont miss this chance to say thank you to our Greatest GenerationNewcomersIf you are new to the Cherrywood community you wont want to miss this opportunity to be welcomed by your fellow residents at a special coffee hour in your honor.

Even if you moved in as long ago as a year, and youve never been to a Welcome Committee coffee hour, you are welcome to join us for this event. None of our residents whove attended have ever regretted the hour or so that they spent learning of all that Cherrywood has to offer. Contact Geri to make your reservation for this special function. Everything is free and the information you receive will enhance your life in many ways. We have a very active community and friendly atmosphere. Make your reservation and let us extend the hand of welcome to you. Ladies Traveling PoolAnother season comes to an end for our Ladies Traveling Pool League.

The event, open to the public, will mark the observance of the Jewish holiday of Lag BOmer, which is traditionally commemorated by large outdoor celebrations and bonfires, which harbor spiritual significance. Chabad-Lubavitch, the largest Jewish outreach organization in the world, is hosting thousands of similar Lag BOmer celebrations in cities across the globe. The celebrations all share a common theme: Jewish Unity. Lag BOmer marks the passing nearly two thousand years ago of the great Talmudic sage, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai. He is best known as the author of the Zohar, the fundamental text of the Jewish mystical tradition, the Kabbalah. On the day of his passing, Rabbi Shimon instructed his disciples to mark the date as the day of my joy. The holiday also marks the end of a tragic epidemic which killed 24,000 students of the great Talmudic sage Rabbi Akiva, who served as Rabbi Shimons teacher. On Lag BOmer the dying ceased. Thus Lag BOmer also carries the theme of Ahavat Yisrael, the imperative to love and respect ones fellow. Lag BOmer is literally translated as the 33rd day of the Omer, a period of seven weeks between Passover, which commemorates the Jewish peoples Exodus from Egypt, and Shavout, which commemorates the giving of the Ten Commandments. For more information on The Chabad Jewish Center of Marion Countys Lag BOmer festivities or on the holiday of Lag BOmer and its observances, contact Rabbi Yossi or Chanie at 352-291-2218, email info@JewishMarion.org or visit our website at www.JewishMarion.org.Maranatha Baptist ChurchAs you all know, the last day of school is June 5.

Sip a mint julep for a small donation and enjoy chips and dip; lemonade or iced tea free of charge. Everyone is asked to bring a pot luck style dish to pass around and naturally everyone can bring their own snacks and libations if they wish. There will be numerous raffles and 50/50 drawings as every one cheers on their favorite horse. The enthusiasm for this event is overwhelming so make it a point to join friends and neighbors at our Kentucky Derby Race Day party. All proceeds go to the Ocala Equine Rescue so not only will you have a great time, youll also support a great cause.Wine Tasting PartyOn May 14, wine expert Joe will be sharing his knowledge of the fruit of the vine with a limited number of lucky guests. In two separate sessions, you will learn what wines accompany what foods; what are premium wines and what wines taste better. The first session starts at 5:30 with a selection of primarily sweet wines. Some dry wines will be featured also to give the tasters a contrast. At 7:30, Joe will bring out a majority of dry wines with a few sweet ones brought into the mix for variety. There are still a few tickets left for each of the sessions, although I cant believe that with the people I know here at Cherrywood. Tickets are required but the event is totally free so if you havent got your reservations yet, now is the time to see Geri. Because the seating is limited, if you have a ticket but cannot make it please bring your ticket to Geri to allow someone else to enjoy the wine tasting.Garden ClubCome join the members of the Garden Club on May 15 at 11 in the morning on the patio. This month the group will car pool and take a tour of Cherrywood gardens to get and give information on how to design; plant; and care for various shrubs; flowers and trees. If you have a green thumb or have always wanted one, this is the place to be to increase your personal knowledge and grow a beautiful garden. The Garden Club is free to everyone who has an interest and all are welcome. TriviaAt 7 p.m. on May 18 come to the Clubhouse for our monthly Trivia contest. Join with others and try to answer the many questions that Fred will be putting on the large screen as you compete for prizes and bragging rights. This is a great fun time for everyone concerned. All players put a buck into the pot and then in teams of three or four, they try to come up with the best answers to questions designed to tease the brain and tickle the funny bone. Bring your friends and refreshments to enjoy while you help support the Wounded Warriors Fund. This is a night of good times and good company shared for a good cause. Dont miss out. Movie nightThis months movie is Argo; awarded the academy award for best picture of 2012. This historical action drama tells the story of six people taken hostage at the Iranian embassy back in 1979 and how they were aided in their escape by the Canadian embassy. Popcorn and soft drinks are provided, or you can bring your own snacks and beverages to this free night of movie entertainment. The show starts at 7 on May 7 so dont be late. Enjoy a big movie on our big screen in the clubhouse.Memorial DayOn May 30 the Cherrywood Veterans Club will host a special Memorial Day Service and luncheon. The service will begin at 11 a.m. at the Clubhouse with a presentation of the colors by our Color Guard and the National Anthem. After our guest speaker delivers an inspirational message, we will salute the Armed Forces. The names of departed club members will be read and in a solemn ceremony, a wreath will be laid at the monument followed by Taps being sounded in honor of our fallen heroes. This ceremony is free and open to the public. Anyone who wishes to pay their respects is welcome to attend. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD PAGE20 000EL T 9 WE KNOW TIRES!

On Saturday, April 13, we held a Bratwurst Roast that was incredible! There was so much delicious food, and great entertainment, that everyone had a wonderful time. Gloria and Oscar, residents of Spruce Creek North, volunteered to play their guitars and sing. As they sang, we all sang along, too. It was stunning to hear all those voices singing old country songs in unison. A huge thank you goes out to all of the volunteers to make this tremendous event happen, but mostly to Paul Roy, for his huge effort to make it all run smoothly. His planning, and supervision made it all happen. Other big helpers included, Dianne and Johnny Pritchett, JoAnne Davidson, Marion Roy, and Ursula and Don Strassel, Chris and Ed Durham, and too many others to mention. The clean up crew was wonderful, too! Thank to all of you for helping to make our community better than ever!Show and Tell and Ice Cream SocialOn April 28 from 1 to 5 p.m., there will be an Ice Cream Social, and a Show and Tell where community members share the things in life they love dearly. There will be various collections of all sorts on display for all to look at and admire. These will include, crafts, quilting, a teapot collection, and much, much more.Open Board MeetingThere will be another open Board Meeting on May 15, at 7 p.m. Community members are urged to come and discuss concerns, questions and ideas for upcoming events in our neighborhood. All are welcome.Breakfast TicketsOn April 24, breakfast tickets can be purchased at the Clubhouse between 1 and 2, or call by the Simards by 5 p.m., at 352-873-9853. The tickets can be used for the Last Saturday Breakfast starting at 9 a.m.Community Garage SaleThe huge garage sale will be on May 3 and 4 this year. You need to sign up at the Clubhouse to participate. For more information please call Barbara Turner, at 352-237-6044. In My OpinionWhen you are lucky enough to live in a beautiful community like Spruce Creek North, it is such a joy to see neighbors gathering together for a good time. The Brat Roast, the dances, and all of the parties for birthdays and just for fun, are what makes our lives interesting. Think about having friends over more frequently, going for a picnic by the pool, or just hanging out with friends at the pool more often. Socializing helps lengthen our lives and makes all of us happier. Even joining a new club, or trying something new will liven up your day, and help keep your brain sharper. Thanks again to all of you that have spruced up your lawns for Spring. This place is becoming a showplace of beautiful flowers and greenery!Sweet Potato Pineapple Casserole Submitted by Cindy HutchinsIngredients Casserole 16 medium sweet potatoes, cut in half and quartered 2 cups crushed pineapple 11/2 cups sugar 6 tbsp butter, melted 2 tsp salt 2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/4 tsp ground allspice 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg 4 eggs Topping 1/2 cup brown sugar 2 tbsp butter melted 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup pecans or walnuts chopped Directions PREHEAT the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9X13 baking dish. BOIL the sweet potatoes in a large stockpot, until soft, about 40 minutes. MEANWHILE make the topping. Combine the brown sugar, flour, sugar, butter and nuts in a small bowl. Set aside. WHEN the potatoes are cool enough to handle, remove the skins and put the potatoes in a bowl of a stand mixer, along with the pineapple, sugar, butter, salt and spices.

Spread the mixture into the baking dish and bake 3040 minutes.Ann Brennan can be reached at 352-342-9466 or at nickevan7@hotmail.com. Immediately following the ceremony, there will be a good old fashioned American picnic. Hamburgers and hot dogs with all the trimmings will be served along with beans and Cole slaw. Lemonade and iced tea will be provided but guests are welcome to bring their beverage of choice. Tickets for the luncheon are just $7 per person and are available from Geri in the office. Lunch tickets will probably not be sold at the door so please stop by the Cherrywood office before Memorial Day and purchase your tickets. Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have given their all for this country. Your Cherrywood Veterans Club is proud to sponsor this holiday celebration on May 30, the date originally set aside for this observance. Wont you please join us?

Did you ever have a day when you felt like crawling into a groundhog hole and hiding until next February? On my way home from the store I thought about what David said in Psalm 23. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me... I can endure anything and anybody as long as God is with me. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. SNYDERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Torah. Further on in the Hebrew Scriptures, we find God communicating with the prophets. Instead of just narrative events, we now have elaborate visions of the future as well as admonitions against social injustice. Isaiahs famous celestial vision of the heavenly hosts (holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts) is used in both Jewish and Christian liturgy. His cries about the social injustice against the poor and defenseless form the basis for many Jewish charitable acts. The prophet Ezekiel has visions that rival the best Sci-fi flicks. He sees a valley of dry bones that come to life as well as a wheel surrounded by what we might call mythical characters. All sorts of interpretations have been given for these visions as strange as they may seem. But it was Elijah who heard the still small Voice. (2 Kings: 19:11-13.) After a series of natural events, Elijah hears a small murmur which was the voice of God. It is that small voice that each one of us hears which spurs us on to do the righteous acts of love and charity. As for todays cell phones, they can do almost anything as well as making a phone call. If the Almighty would like to communicate with us today, he/she needs only to use the cell phone. In fact there is already a Bible app you can download. Go figure!

Friday, April 19, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, April 19, 2013 www.smcitizen.com It was an event that happened forty years ago this month and it was to change the way we communicated with each other forever. It was invented by Martin Cooper, a scientist with Motorola who believed we should all be able to carry our phones with us wherever we went. With the walkie-talkie as an inspiration, the cell phone was born. The original portable handset device weighed 2.5 pounds and was 9x5.1.75 inches. You could talk for a whole 35 minutes without a charge (about the time it takes today to get connected to your credit card company) but charging the phone would take you 10 hours. It was a primitive device by todays standards and even the most technologychallenged amongst us could probably figure it out for all it did was talk, listen and dial. Youve come a long way baby! Pushing back in time to the Biblical era, approximately 3,500 years ago, we find communications to be a very different matter. Of course there were signal fires built on hilltops to announce the sighting of the new moon for ritual purposes and the messengers that rode from place to place or the assembly of the people announced by the blowing of the shofar (rams horn) but no cell phones of course. When it came for God to communicate with the patriarchs, prophets or ancient Israelites, different methods were employed. God visits Abraham with visions in which he is told of Gods promises that his descendants will be as numerous as the stars and as the sands on the beach. He is also assured that his progeny will inherit a land. Abraham is also privy to the impending destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah as well as his wifes, Sarah, pregnancy despite her advanced age. This time God uses three angels in the guise of men to inform Abraham of his intentions. Actually the Bible states that the angels were strangers, which Abraham shows great hospitality to. Commentators on the passage have deduced that the men were angels. (Gen. 18:2) Later on in the book of Genesis when Abraham is about to sacrifice his son Isaac to God, he hears a voice from Heaven instructing him to sacrifice a ram instead. Jacob, the patriarch, receives divine communication in the form of a dream. In the famous Bible tale, he dreams of a ladder reaching to Heaven with angels traveling down and up. But while his dad had dreams, it was his son, Joseph that became a dream interpreter. When his brothers have dreams, Joseph correctly interprets them to the dismay of his siblings. He tells them that one-day they will all bow down to him. Letting sibling rivalry take the lead, the brothers sell Joseph off as a slave to a caravan of Midianites. Through divine communication, Joseph is able to interpret the dreams of the Pharaoh and thus becomes second in command to Pharaoh. And yes, his brothers do eventually bow down to him when they come to Egypt seeking food due to a famine in Canaan. Up to now, God has communicated to certain individuals through visions, dreams, angels or by a voice. In the story of Moses, the Deity uses a rather unusual medium, that is, a burning bush. Moses, the soon to be prophet, is a shepherd and he investigates a bush that appears to be on fire but is not consumed. From out of the bush he hears the voice of God telling him to return to Egypt and tell Pharaoh to let My people go. As the book of Exodus unfolds, Moses has more communication with the divine especially when on Mt. Sinai receiving the Ten Commandments. While he longs to see God face to face, the Almighty explains that a human cannot do so and live. He therefore places Moses in a cleft of a rock so that Moses could see his back as his spirit passed. This communication moment in the Bible is a fascinating one for all its implications of divine power and mercy and human longing to communicate with the divine. It is also the first time in history, that a deity reveals himself/herself to an entire nation. Amidst which could have been some kind of volcanic eruption, the Israelite nation receives the divine laws by which they were to live. It is an awe-inspiring event in the history of the Jewish people, so important that to this day, every Jew considers him/herself as being at Mt. Sinai at the time of the giving of the Divine Communication Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI PAGE13 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comClub news and softball make up this weeks OTOW Happenings.New England ClubAt the March meeting of the New England Club, the tables were beautifully decorated in celebration of St. Patricks Day. Refreshments also reflected a St. Patricks Day theme. President Donnamarie listed the total membership by state. All New England states were well represented, with more members from Massachusetts than any of the other states. Matthew Grow, manager of the Ocala International Airport, was the guest speaker. Attendees learned of current issues and future plans for the airport. One concern highlighted was that the control tower might be closed. Mr. Grow, however, stated he did not expect the possible closing to affect the amount of traffic at the airport; alas, it was later announced that the tower will, in fact, be closed. Members donated 84 pairs of crew socks plus $46 for the purchase of additional socks for veterans. The April 18 meeting will be held in the Arbor Club ballroom at 1 p.m. The guest speaker will be a representative from the Sheriff Departments K-9 unit. The final meeting of the season will take place on May 16 and will feature a pizza party. For those who plan to attend the May meeting, please sign up in advance so there is an accurate count so that the correct number of pizzas can be ordered. Coffee is provided by the club; refreshments are provided by club members, but one should bring his or her own water or soda. There is always a 50/50 drawing as well as other opportunities to win door prizes. New members are always welcome, so come join the fun. One does not have to be from New England to join the club; a love of New England is all that is needed.

Forget that the baseball season is upon us. Do you want to see some real players who will add excitement and laughter to your life? Well, come on down any Monday or Wednesday morning and see your neighbors make you feel young again! The WiseWay team continues to hold on to first place but has lost some ground as the Dr. Dunn team has moved into one game of first place. Close behind, though, is a three-way tie for third place, shared by The Cebert Wealth, Tee Pee Tire and Great Clips teams, with only two games behind the first place leader. Its now a toss-up as to who will take over first place. The teams are now readying themselves for the final month of softball. Unfortunately the Overholser team has lost some players and is having a difficult time getting a win, while the Great Clips and Tee Pee Tire, which were headed to the basement a month ago, have suddenly been resurrected and are playing super ball. There are still quite a few games to go, so anything can happen that could change the whole outlook of the standings. For now, though, its a tight race to the finish, and you can see the excitement in the players. Come on down and enjoy the fun.

The manager was shocked! Not only was this a talking horse, but he wanted to play baseball. So he put the horse in the outfield, where the horse caught all the balls hit to him. In the infield, he always made the right play. When it came time to bat in a game, the horse hit a long line drive between the outfielders. But then the horse just stood at the plate. Run! the manager shouted. Run! The horse turned to the manager and said, If I could run, Id be at the race track.How to get alongA husband was having great difficulty getting along with his wife, always arguing and experiencing friction; so he decided to consult a marriage counselor. The counselor said, You should run five miles each day for a week. Then please call me back. A week later the counselor received a call from the husband. Well, asked the counselor, how are things going with you and your wife? How should I know? said the husband. Im 35 miles away.SprintsThe fastest man I know could turn off the light switch on the wall and be in bed before the light went out. Even if you are on the right track, youll get run over if you just sit there. The two little mischievous boys found themselves in a modern art gallery by mistake. Quick, said one, Run! Before they say we did it! The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas. If a blonde throws a pin at you, run, shes got a grenade in her mouth. Well never run out of math teachers because they always multiply. Ive never been pinched for going too fast, but Ive been slapped. An apple a day keeps the doctor away, an onion a day keeps everybody away. If you take a laptop computer for a run you could jog your memory.Fast IndianStopping just outside a bar after a long ride, the Lone Ranger and Tonto discovered Silver swooning from heat exhaustion. The Lone Ranger got the horse water then said, Tonto, I want you to run around Silver as fast as you can and see if you can create enough breeze to help him cool down. Tonto said, Sure, Kemo Sabe. He then began running circles around Silver. Not able to do anything else but wait, the Lone Ranger went in the bar to have a drink. A few minutes later, another cowboy strutted into the bar and asked, Who owns the big white horse outside? The Lone Ranger said, I do. Whats wrong with him this time? The cowboy looked him in the eye and said, Nothing. But you left your Injun runnin.Whiz!An officer interrogating the soldier asked, Did you hear the bullet whiz by you? The soldier said, Twice.

I have dreams of times when everything goes perfect. Then, I awake to the reality of the world around me. I guess everybody dreams of at least one perfect day. Last week my dream came true... or almost. For no apparent reason I awoke from sleep feeling quite happy. I had no explanation for this giggly feeling of mine. I do not normally rouse myself from sleep with a chipper attitude. Just ask my wife. On second thought, dont. I just was in such a good mood that I broke out into song, which my wife threatened to end my life if I did not stop it immediately. I did not try to psychoanalyze myself and think that perhaps this was the beginning of senility or something. I just accepted it as a great day to be alive. One of my basic philosophies of life is, dont look a gift horse in the mouth; after all, he might have bad breath. This particular day nothing could bring me back to earth. I was all but literally dancing on the clouds and I cannot dance. But it was a good day to be alive and know it. Very nonchalantly, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage addressed me in a rather semi-informal manner. Would you run to the store and get me something? Being in such a high spirit, I sang my affirmative answer to her in spite of her glaring in my direction. I did not care. I would have jumped over the moon if she had asked at the time. Lucky for me, she did not ask. I was in such a good mood that I thought a shopping trip would be OK. Let it be known that when it comes to shopping, shopping and I go together like peanut butter and lobster tail. It was such a wonderful day and I felt so terrific I agreed to go shopping for my wife. Not that I needed a new wife, the one I have is fine, thank you. When I entered the store, I had a nagging feeling that something was wrong. Being in such a great mood that I was in, I shook it off and rebuked it firmly. In record time, I found the item my wife needed. Dancing and singing up the aisle, I went immediately to the checkout counter. When I got there, I found nobody there. On the counter was a bell and next to the bell, a sign that read, Ring bell for cashier. Being in such a great mood, I rang the bell to the tune of the song I was singing at the time. After all, happy is as happy shares, and I had my share of happiness at the time. Then I heard it. All right, growling from the back of the store, I heard ya. Ill be there when I get there. If I would have stopped there, it might not have gotten out of hand. Being in the goosy-kind of mood I was in, I had to take it one step further. I stared at the bell until I could stare no more and then I broke out into song accompanied by the cashiers bell. I wish you could have been there, it was spectacular. I heard you the first time, the voice exploded from the back of the store. Ill get there when I get there and not a second sooner. I smiled to myself and reminded myself that nobody was going to spoil my mood of happiness today. Then I saw her stomping up the aisle toward the cashier counter where I was waiting. If looks could kill, and I am not so sure they cant, I would have died on the spot. I do not think steam was coming out her ears, but I am not absolutely sure about that. I know there was fire in her eyes, which were focused in my direction like a laser beam. When she got to the counter she growled, Are you the one ringing the bell? With my finger on the bell, and nobody else in the store, it was hard to answer in the negative. In fact, it was hard for me to say anything while she was looking at me the way she was looking at me. She stared for a moment, at least it was something close to a stare that burrowed itself deep into my soul and that goosy-kind of feeling evaporated. Its customers like you, she snarled, that makes my day terrible. She then looked at the one item I had laying on the counter for her to ring up. She looked at it, and then looked up at me and then looked back at the item on the counter. Hissing like I have never heard hissing before, Is this what youre making Grouchy is as grouchy growls Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE20 BY ABDON SIDIBE Citrus County Chronicle Lauren Book is a foot soldier trying to spread awareness and education about the shame-riddled and confusing world of child sexual abuse. Book, 27, is a survivor of prolonged childhood sexual abuse at the hands of a nanny and has made it her lifes mission to spread the word about sexual offenders. She is traversing the state, launching her fourth annual 1,500-mile Walk in My Shoes education and awareness campaign. The walking events, which will take Book from Key West to Tallahassee, will culminate with a rally April 23 at the states historic Capitol building. Wednesday, Book stopped in Citrus and Marion counties to discuss preventing child sexual abuse. Book told her story of abuse and triumph. She also wrote a memoir called Its OK to Tell spelling out the details of her exploitation, which began at age 10 and went on until she was 16. Book told of how she endured daily sexual and physical abuse at the hands of the nanny in her own home. This went on 365 days, she said. Book said as a child she was eager to please, and her abuser targeted her rather than her two siblings because of this. She said the nanny, like most predators, was very crafty, especially when it came to physical abuse. Book said the nanny hit her, threw her down stairs and bruised me where my parents wouldnt look. In 2001, Book, at the urging of a boyfriend and after six years of enduring the nannys abuse, confessed to a therapist who told Books parents. The nanny was fired and authorities moved to make an arrest, but Books abuser fled to Oklahoma, where she was found coaching girls soccer. She was arrested a month later. Books father, Ron Book, is a wellknown South Florida attorney and lobbyist. The nanny eventually went to prison, but continued writing letters to Book. With the help of her father, Book helped shepherd several child sex abuse laws through the Legislature, including one that bars convicted abusers from contacting their victims. Books nanny got an extra 10 years in prison for continuing to contact her. Her other legislative and advocacy accomplishments include: Securing the right of victims to have access to a predators HIV test results within 48 hours of request. A ban on molesters from ever contacting their victims or families. Creation of a statewide network of sexual assault treatment centers. Enactment of a law that bars predators from living within 2,500 feet of public places where children gather, such as schools, parks and playgrounds. Book also travels to schools and gives talks to advocacy groups about the best ways to spread word about how to empower children to detect and reveal predators. Believe in the child, Book said. Keep them loved and safe. Try to build that child up. For more information about Books work, visit laurenskids.org.

Friday, April 19, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, April 19, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Airport towerI was recently advised of your editorial regarding the FAAs proposal to close 149 control towers, including the one at the Ocala Airport. Having read the editorial, I was compelled to provide some additional background information for your readers, as well as to correct a few of your assumptions. Flightaware.com is a fantastic tool to predict arrival and departure traffic, however it does not provide the entire picture. Aircraft owners who do not wish to have their information made available have their aircraft flights blocked from view. Additionally, Flightaware.com only shows aircraft that have filed flight plans citing Ocala as a destination or origination. It does not include the thousands of recreational flyers that do not file flight plans. The FAAs methodology to determine the closure list lacked depth or an individual airport operational assessment. They drew a line and determined any tower with annual operations of less than 150,000 will close. Our view is it isnt as simple as a numbers assessment; each airport is different. For instance, in Ocala there is such a diverse fleet mix of aircraft you see large air carrier aircraft such as Boeing 757s or fast business jets operating in the same airspace as many small slower training aircraft. The difference in these operating speeds combined with our total annual operations are the main reasons the FAA justified this control tower just four years ago, but now they want to close it based on an arbitrary number, and without specific research. For Ocala, the control tower provides a step to the next stage of growth for the airport. It, along with the other infrastructure improvements on and around the airport, combines to provide a catalyst of opportunity for new or expanding business for our community. We are working with other affected airports, our congressional representatives, and industry leaders on saving the contract tower system. However, it appears that Ocalas control tower will cease operations on June 15. From June 16 and beyond, airplanes will still land and take off at the Ocala International Airport. Although the absence of a tower diminishes operational effectiveness, it does not make the airport unsafe. The airport successfully LETTERS TO THE EDITOR operated as a non-towered airport for 48 years (from 1962 to 2010), and it can successfully operate as a non-towered airport in the future. I encourage citizens to contact their respective Congressional representatives and urge them to find sensible cuts that do not impact our Nations infrastructure. Matthew Grow Airport DirectorFirst tolerance, then acceptanceOne bite at a time is how we describe how to eat an elephant, the same applies to how to bring about the destruction of America, little by little, one bite at a time. What one generation tolerates, the next accepts. This did not start with Obama, although he is pushing hard to fundamentally change America as stated in his campaign. I still question why no one pressed him on just what he had in mind, just what needs drastic changing? Why did Michelle state this is the first time she has been proud of America? No one asked for answers! Regretfully, we have been destroying our core values since the s beginning with allowing our courts to take student prayer out of our schools. We sat back and let it happen and they have been going downhill ever since. Too many now want God out of our lives and our decision making, moving the accepted norm in nearly all areas of our life, including the family. The traditional family is under constant attack and over half our newborns are illegitimate, being raised in fatherless homes. Having babies without the benefit of wedlock is now widely accepted and of course the tax payer picks up most of the tab. This can be verified by Munroe Hospital. The movement is now on to redefine marriage, pushing us to the mindset of Sodom, letting government decide what is right or wrong. Sin is sin, God is still God and he doesnt change. God determines what is right and wrong and if we insist on taking him out of our lives, out of our decisions, we are inviting him to remove his blessings from America. When he does, America will surely fall! God, being righteous, will discipline our disobedience and it wont be pleasant. If I wanted to destroy America, I would do the following: change our value system through the destruction of our morals, removing God from our lives; destroy our capitalist system through massive debt; decimate our health care system (Obama Care); create a welfare society that is dependent on government ; fan the fires of class warfare and bite by bite, disarm our citizens. Lastly, I would take over the education of our children, from a very early age so they could be indoctrinated into my way of thinking. In other words, exactly what Obama is trying to do! Thats why I and so many others that love America and have faith in God dislike Obama. We dont need another reason, thats reason enough! Wayne Rackley Oak Run PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE23 LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 Florida?Three turtles, two large ones and a little one, went to a bar to quench their thirst. Each ordered a drink. Then one of the large turtles commented that it was raining and that the little turtle should go home for an umbrella. The little turtle objected because he feared the two big turtles would take his drink while he was gone. But the big turtles convinced the little one that they would not take his drink, and he started after the umbrella. Two weeks passed, and finally one of the big turtles said, Lets have the little guys drink. Ive been thinking the same thing, said the other, so thats just what well do. From down at the end of the bar near the door, a shrill voice cried, If you do, I wont go after that umbrella.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. PUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 21 RECONTRUCTING AMELIA By Kimberly McCreight Practicing attorney and harried single mother Kate Baron is shocked when her daughter Amelias tony private school in Brooklyn calls to tell her that her child is being suspended for cheating. Kate finds the news puzzling on many levels. Amelia is a straight A over-achiever who doesnt need to cheat and the idea that she would plagiarize a paper on Virginia Woolf is ludicrous. Amelia is something of an expert on that author. Even so, Kate has been summoned to Grace Hall to collect her daughter. When she arrives an hour later from her mid-town law firm the scene is chaotic with emergency vehicles and police everywhere. The situation, it seems, is far more dire than the telephone call suggested. Amelia, shes told, is dead as a result of a spontaneous suicide brought on by the disgrace; at least thats what Grace Hall and police surmise. They explain that after being accused of cheating Amelia fled to the schools roof and jumped. Thus begins a novel that will haunt you beyond the last page. McCreight exposes the dark heart of some American teenagers whose mean-girl politics is enhanced by modern technology. Hers is a tale of secret highschool societies, relentless bullying, and sexual awakening. Though still believing that a mistake had been made about the cheating, Kate tries to accept Amelias death. Then she receives an anonymous cryptic text message: She didnt jump. Thats all Kate needs to turn from litigating to sleuthing and reconstructing her daughters last days and hours. She begins by sifting through Amelias e-mails, text messages, social media postings and cell phone logs. Little by little she learns that her daughter experienced secrets and lies, a first love, and betrayal by trusted friends. Told in alternating voices of mother and daughter the story is about how well a parent can ever really know a child. In Kates case its also a story about how far a mother will go to vindicate the life of a daughter she was powerless to save. How well does a parent know his children?

The exhibit included photographs from the OTOW Shutterbugs Club and various artists. There were many exhibitors around the hall but the Shutterbugs were in the entry hal. Man y people stopped to view all the photos on display from various members. After viewing the photos the various artists using diffe rent media to create their projects had their turn to explain their works.

PHOTO BY MIKE ROPPELThese are from the many displays from different artists. using different media to make their projects. BY JEFF BRYAN Riverland NewsHere Comes the Boom. No, we arent talking about the 2012 box office flop staring Kevin James as a teacher turned MMA fighter in hopes of saving his schools music program. No, the boom in this case is the annual Dunnellon Boomtown Days, a two-day festival in the heart of the Downtown Historic District. The event, which runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, celebrates the towns mining roots in the 1800s. During that period, Dunnellon was one of the fastest growing cities in the state thanks in large part to the discovery of phosphate. Entry fee is $2 for those 13 and older each day; those 12 and younger are free. A portion of this years gate receipts will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Dunnellon. Its going great, said Beverly Leisure, the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerces executive director, about last-minute preparations. Everything is just hurry up, but everything just falls into place. As is customary, the mayor of Dunnellon will announce the winner of this years Boomtown Mayor race between Justin Yancey and Vicki Leonard. Each participant in the race for Boomtown mayor garners votes for $1 each, and whoever collects the most money is declared the winner. Leisure said the entertainment line-up and schedBoomtown Days are Saturday and Sunday in Dunnellon ule is complete, and features a variety of something for everyone. Among those slated to perform include 16-year-old Cote Deonath, an Elvis tribute artist. He is likely better known as Little Elvis, but hes not so little anymore Leisure said of the Dunnellon High sophomore who made his first appearance on the Boomtown Stage at the age of 5. Hes wonderful, she said. Hes a great performer and I think the crowds are going to love him and, of course, some of the old ladies will just go crazy. In addition to Deonaths appearance both days, the Dunnellon High Band as well as the DHS Concert and Jazz Bands will perform Saturday. Other well-known acts and individuals set to perform during the weekend include the Dane Myers Band, featuring 19-yearold Dane Myers, and Lee Britt, a popular singer/musician from Ocala, who recently performed at Cracker Days at Rainbow Springs State Park. In addition to the bevy of musical talent, the annual Little Mr. and Miss Dunnellon pageant will begin at 10:30 a.m. Saturday on the Main Stage behind First Reality of Dunnellon. This years event features six contestants vying for crowns. Thats one of my favorites, Leisure said about the Little Mr. & Miss Dunnellon pageant. (The kids) are just so cute. Its fun to watch, and Lydia (Mills) has done a great job of preparing the kids and getting them ready for the event. Despite the musical acts and pageant, there will be plenty for everyone to take in during the weekend, which Leisure said the weather should be perfect for. The forecast calls for highs to be in the 80s both days, with a modest 10 percent of rain. There will be numerous vendors selling arts, crafts and, of course, food, plenty of food, Leisure added. Several organizations will have informational booths set up. Additionally, there will be a large Kids Zone this year with the addition of a Midway, which will provide carnival-type games for youths to participate in. There will also be rides set up. Weve really tried to add more stuff for children, Leisure said. This really is a family friendly event; were making sure there is something for everyone to do. We know families really enjoy coming out. Leisure praised local businesses, which really rose to the occasions. Theyve been excellent with their sponsorships, donations and their overall support of the event, she explained. The businesses really came forward, like they always do. Through it all, Leisure said the most pivotal aspect of making Boomtown Days Dunnellon possible is the work of the volunteers who spend months helping gather entertainment, vendors and other essential components of the annual festival. There will be more activities for children this year. 3 5 2 4 6 5 7 5 3 8 352-465-7538 20312 E. Pennsylvania Ave. www.bluerunbicycles.com Featuring Bikes For Every Rider!

Friday, April 19, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, April 19, 2013 There are a lot of people who arent going to like my philosophy on the recent legislative gambling rulings, including some who work with me but here goes. The Legislature adopted, and the governor signed, a ban on socalled Internet cafes in Florida. The bill was a knee-jerk reaction (which is never good) to the recent raids and arrests on one caf provider who was once linked to Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, who subsequently resigned. (Be honest, now, before all this broke, how many of you knew the lieutenant governors name?) However, while I personally am in favor of shutting these places down, because no good can come from them and many of the people who patronize these businesses are those who can least afford it, I think this bill is hypocritical, at best, on several fronts. If gambling is illegal, why, when some of these cafes were raided a while back, werent patrons arrested? If its illegal to run a gambling house, its also illegal to gamble. If not, leave the business and patrons alone. Down in Seminole County last week, they raided a house in Longwood that was allegedly the center of an international gambling ring. As of that night, some overseas websites were still taking bets through that ring on that nights NBA basketball games. Trouble is, all the owners have to do is move to some offshore island, and it will still be on the Internet, and people will go on gambling, whether the state likes it or not. Getting back to the cafes, who is the biggest beneficiary of the shutdown of all these businesses? Of course, its the state-run Florida Lottery, which has more gambling than all of these Internet cafes put together. Those who are older can remember the days of the numbers racket. For those who are younger, that was very similar to the lotterys Cash 3. People bet, often with unsavory looking characters or with runners in their place of employment, on a threedigit number. The nearest horse racing facility was usually used. Tracks reported their handle daily, thats the amount of money bet on the horses that day. The last three digits were the number, and if you hit the number you won. Sounds like the lottery, doesnt it? When the lottery took effect, organized crimes numbers racket went away, or at least was diminished. But if the Internet cafes are gambling, why isnt the lottery considered gambling? Why is one legal and the other isnt? Why was the numbers racket illegal and the lottery isnt? Shouldnt we be consistent and ban all gambling? So heres my thought. Lets either make all gambling illegal, or lets make it all legal. That includes horse racing, jai alai, dog tracks, etc. Dont be hypocritical and ban one type of betting while keeping another in business. Ive never been in an Internet caf, but Ive played the lottery, as, I expect, have many of you. Fortunately, Ive never gotten to the addictive point, and I hope I never do. You folks should examine yourselves, too. If you cant get along without placing a bet on something, somewhere, maybe its time to visit Gamblers Anonymous. When I say all gambling, Im including casinos, which are owned by Native Americans and are exempt from state law.

The images were seen all Monday afternoon and evening the bombs exploding, the man falling in the middle of the street, the anguished looks on the faces of witnesses, the blood on people being led into ambulances, the boy being wheeled away with a bandage on his leg, etc., etc., etc. When you woke up Tuesday morning, there they were again, the same images, repeated over and over. You know, somewhere, some terrorist or terrorists were sitting back watching all this unfold, enjoying the handiwork of their comrades, enjoying the suffering of Americans. Dont the networks realize this? Do they have to show the grief again and again? Isnt this giving aid and comfort to the enemy? Yes, the news has to be reported. But for how long, and how repetitively? Evidently the time of day played a part. Networks were quick to jump into local stations time and preempt talk shows, quiz shows, local news, etc. But once you got to prime time, you know, where the money is made, shows like Dancing With The Stars and The Voice went on as scheduled. Go back a couple of weeks to the gruesome leg injury of Kevin Ware, basketball player for the University of Louisville. After the initial showing of what happened, nearly every report we saw put a blurry circle over his leg so that the actual injury, a compound fracture where the bone was sticking out, couldnt be seen. Networks said they were being sensitive about the injury in respect to Ware and his relatives, and because the injury was so terrible. So is a bombing less terrible? Showing the faces of people with blood streaming from injuries doesnt deserve the same sensitivity as a broken leg? Showing a man turning slowly and then collapsing in the middle of the street isnt painful to his family? The networks also were guilty of providing misinformation on the fly. They always use the disclaimer, Weve been told but we cant confirm that. Still, they put the unsubstantiated rumors out there, which does a disservice to all. For example, there was an explosion at a nearby library, then there wasnt an explosion; there were 120 people hurt, then there were 70, then it was over 100 again; there were three unexploded devices found, then there were none, then there were two that were detonated by police, then it turns out they were not bombs; cell phone service was cut off to avoid remote detonation of additional bombs, then it was restored (Sprint and Verizon both said that their cell phone service was never interrupted). So now we wait for the follow-ups, possible arrests, etc. There is no doubt that the explosions were another in a long list of terrorist tragedies. There is also no doubt that, for a while, we will be inundated with rumors and unconfirmed facts. We just need to accept that there are bad people in the world, and we need to be ever vigilant to lessen their impact on society. And we dont need the networks to tell us that. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Aid and comfort to the enemy? If its all gambling, shut it all down Cuts are hurting our warfighting capabilities READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor GUEST COMMENTARY BY MIKE EMIGThere is a big debate going on in this country on the size of the budget and the national debt. Each service will be taking a hard look at what programs to cut. Already due to cuts caused by the sequester, weve seen airshow participation cut, travel cut, civilian furloughs and recently, the stand down of 17 combat squadrons due to conserve flying hours for those units about to deploy and those in combat zones. DOD can only reduce the overhead costs of administration, maintenance, and medical by cutting into warfighting capabilities. We have a national debt standing at nearly $12 Trillion dollars and growing every day, and expected to be $21 Trillion dollars by the end of this decade. We all have to make tough choices but we have to make smart ones as we drawdown the military and our forces. What programs do we cut or cancel? We fly tankers more than 50 years old. How much longer can we delay replacing them? Our fighters are on average 25 years old and are reaching the end of their life cycles. How much longer can we expect our men and women to fly aircraft that may break up in flight? Can we really afford to shortchange our nations defense? Defense spending seems high considering weve been fighting two wars and supporting an all volunteer force but defense spending is still only roughly 4 percent of GDP It was at 35 percent during World War II and 9 percent during the Cold War. Defense spending reigned during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. In 1970, total defense spending was 8.1 percent of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) more than twice the 3.8 percent spent on the big three entitlement programs but starting in 1971, entitlement spending surpassed defense and today stands at over 13 percent of GDP Entitlement spending is on the road to absorbing more of the federal budget as the baby boom generation retires and ages. The result is that eventually, this will crowd out defense spending and limit what the government can provide in military and economic growth. At the end of the Cold War in 1991, recapitalization funds were taken to pay for a peace dividend. New equipment planned and programmed were eventually bought in small numbers while other programs were delayed. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan further delayed recapitalization to the point that perhaps not long from now the U.S. may undergo disarmament by default. Something none of our enemies could accomplish. One of the primary responsibilities of Congress, according to the U.S. Constitution, section 8, is to provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States. Unless Congress reins in spending it will find itself unable to live up to its responsibilities under the constitution and we will find our military a hollow force when well need it the most.Mike Emig is a member of the Air Force Association (AFA) in Ocala.

Showcase of Stars: Bringing in the spring on April 27 Oak Run Carol Wheeler Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, Texas Governor Rick Perry, Florida Governor Rick Scott and Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant are calling on Congress to allow the states to take control over management of the red snapper fishery in the Gulf of Mexico. In a letter to Congressional leadership, the governors declared federal fisheries management irretrievably and seek passage of legislation that would reverse a situation that is negatively impacting the coastal economies and citizens of the Gulf Coast. After three decades under ineffective federal management, our citizens are left with a 9-day season for this iconic fish, and that is just an unacceptable outcome. Our own Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has worked constructively with user groups like the Coastal Conservation Association and shown how proper management can foster our wildlife resources to be vibrant economic engines for Louisiana, Governor Governors call for state control of Red Snapper Fishery Jindal said. We should not have to settle for overarching, sub-par management of these resources by the federal government. The Gulf states have all proven they can do a far better job not only creating healthy fisheries, but providing greater access to them for our citizens. We are calling on Congress to give us the opportunity to do so. Governor Scott said, As one of the top fishing destinations in the world, no one understands Florida fisheries better than state and local communities. The current unilateral, regulatory framework administered by the federal government for Red Snapper lacks flexibility and has undermined the expertise of our state fishery officials and local fishing communities. State officials, working in partnership with local communities are far better suited for protecting Red Snapper, while providing local economies with reasonable standards that allow families to pursue jobs in Florida's bountiful waters. 000EHTA 000EKPA 000EJMB Representing Ocala area residents for over 40 years The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements Before you decide, ask us to send free written information about our qualifications and experience. 237-9225 W.E.

They receive more than three months of training, and their work is constantly reviewed and critiqued because how they respond at the other end of the line in any given situation can mean life or death, he added. Obtaining the re-certification is a process that takes several months and requires the communications center to score a 95 percent or better in 20 categories that ensure dispatchers are asking the right questions, providing a high level of medical and emergency assistance via phone, participate in continuing education and more. The NAED determines whether these and other parameters have been met by reviewing 911 calls and reports at random. All call-takers and dispatchers at the center are trained to handle fire, medical and law enforcement calls, which saves time during emergencies as well as tax-payer dollars. Having cross-trained call-takers allows calltakers to eliminate reasking three questions, which creates a time-savings of 25 to 30 seconds per call, said Oltz. Its something were proud of being able to react 20 seconds quicker in an emergency situation is a big deal, he added. Moreover, the Communications Center doesnt stop at maintaining a high-level of competency it aims to save taxpayers money as well. The current center was established in 2010 and brought Marion County Fire Rescue and the Marion County Sheriffs Office 911 dispatchers and call-takers from their respective agencies together in the same building. In October 2012, Ocala Fire Rescue joined them in a collaborative agreement that will save local taxpayers more than $395,000 during the 2012-2013 fiscal year alone.

These were some of the words that were used to describe the fully-cooked baby back ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community during last falls rib event. Happily, on Saturday May 4 starting at 10 a.m., the tent at the Bank of the Ozarks on State Road 200 and Southwest 99th Street will be back with the purpose of raising funds to allow the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest to support the College of Central Florida Nursing Scholarship Program and other local and international projects. A full rack of smoke-cooked baby back ribs costs only $18 if you prepay and pick up your order before 12:30 p.m. The cost is $20 for racks that are not prepaid. It is highly recommended to pre-order and to get there early (if you dont preorder) before the ribs are gone! Before cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. Rotary President Beverly Wise says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret thats as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe. Youll need to eat the Rotarys baby back ribs to experience the great taste. If you want to place your ribs in the freezer and eat them later, reheating directions are included with your wrapped order. Pre-paid tickets are being sold by members of the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest. The Club meets on Tuesdays at 7:45 a.m. in suite 240 in the Doctors Office Building at the West Marion Community Hospital. You can also buy tickets at Integrity Home Health Care on Southwest 103 Street and at several locations along State Route 200 including the Bank of the Ozarks, Alarion Bank, Coldwell Banker/Ellison Realty, the law office of W.E. Bishop Jr. and M&S Bank on College Road. For more information, visit the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest Facebook page or call W. E Bishop Jr. at 352-237-9225. Time to get your ribs Alzheimers caregivers can join support groupIf you are a caregiver of a loved one with Dementia or Alzheimers disease, or have been recently diagnosed with the disease, Emeritus Ocala West would like to invite you to our monthly support groups.
