CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & Businesses FRIDAY, April 26, 2013 VOLUME 17 NUMBER 48 www.smcitizen.com OF NOTE Public defender to speak at Friday ForumMichael Graves, Public Defender for the five county 5th judicial district which is headquartered in Marion County, will speak when the Friday Forum luncheon series next convenes at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, May 10, at Buffet City located at the corner of State Road 200 and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Ocala. Cost is $10 per person payable to the restaurant. In this age of the new Jim Crow, people from all walks of life who share an interest in our community and the welfare of all our people are invited to attend what we believe will be an expansion of our knowledge and understanding about our responsibilities to indigent defendants in criminal cases in compliance with the Sixth Amendment and the Gideon v. Wainwright decision by the Supreme Court 50 years ago. Justice Hugo Black wrote in the decision that reason and reflection require us to recognize that in our adversary system of criminal justice, any person hauled into court who is too poor to hire a lawyer, cannot be assured a fair trial unless counsel is provided for him. This seems to us to be an obvious truth. Julianne Holt, president of the Florida Public Defenders Association, wrote in March 2013 that Gideon v. Wainwright is the foundation of the Florida Public Defender system. She said The Florida Legislature provides the funds necessary for the elected public defenders to employ lawyers, experts, psychologists, investigators and the other services necessary to defend indigent clients.

The Relay started Friday and lasted through the night to Saturday morning.PHOTOS BY JIM CLARK Countryside Presbyterian Church will celebrate its 25th anniversary at a special service on Sunday, May 5, at 10:30 a.m. led by Rev. Gary O. Marshall. The church is at 7768 S.W. State Road 200 in Ocala. Guests include the Rev. Steven Benz, Interim Executive Presbyter and the Rev. Alisun Donovan, Associate Executive Presbyter from the Presbytery of St. Augustine and four of our charter members Polly Arit, Willa French, Liz Milleson and Cleone Redman. The Chancel and Hand Bell Choirs as well as guest musicians will perform. A catered lunch will be served to our members at the Oak Run Country club donated by an anonymous benefactor. In 1987 representatives from First Presbyterian Church and Fort King Presbyterian Church decided that there was a need for a Presbyterian Church on Southwest SR 200. The chartering service of Countryside Presbyterian Church and the installation of Rev. Robert K. McGirt took place on May 15, 1988 at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Ocala. The dedicated few who began meeting in Roberts Funeral Home (formerly Bruce West) on SR 200 took the first steps resulting in the founding of our church. Their initial sacrifice and continued support of the church made it possible for the church to prosper and grow. Pastor Robert K. McGirt led the new congregation in worship for about three years. Under his leadership, the first building consisting of a multipurpose room, used as a sanctuary, two offices, a classroom, kitchen and nursery was completed in October 1990. The mortgage on this building was paid ahead of schedule in 2001. Rev. McGirt served until his Countryside marks 25th anniversary PLEASESEECHURCH PAGE3 PLEASESEEFORUM PAGE2 *See sales person for details. Pictures for illustration purposes only.

Central Florida Mr. Graves sat on a panel concerning restorative justice in which participants concluded that the public wants compliance but is not willing to pay for it. Ms. Holt continued that In Florida last year, the 20 public defender offices handled more than three-quarters of a million court-appointed cases and appeals. In the past 50 years, the public defender offices have become the primary providers of criminal defense services, and the 20 public defenders offices are the states firstline of criminal defense. This 50-year anniversary of a Florida case that became a cornerstone of our nations justice system is an excellent time to reflect on how far weve come and to renew our commitment to moving our goals forward. Please join the Friday Forums community conversation about public defenders who serve as a critical check and balance against the vast power of the state when brought to bear upon an individual charged with committing a crime.

At 10:33 p.m. Saturday, Marion County Fire Rescue responded to Hampton Manor Assisted Living Facility, 10590 S.E. 62nd Ave. Road, Belleview, due to damage and danger created by a large tree, which fell on the facilitys roof. No one was injured. However, due to the structural damage, the compromised electrical system and the lack of water to certain areas of the building, all 52 residents were evacuated. MCFR crew members assisted the Hampton Manor staff in transporting residents from their rooms to Hampton Manor-operated vans and shuttles, which took 47 of the residents to nearby Hampton Manor facilities; the other five residents were picked-up by family members. The tree landed atop the facilitys back dining room and broke the fire suppression system, which caused its pipes to flood a section of the center with approximately three inches of water. Twelve MCFR units and approximately 25 crew members assisted with the evacuation; Officials estimate it will take at least a week for the facility to make the necessary repairs. Arrested Samuel Lynn Irvin, 61, of Summerfield, is in the Marion County Jail. Irvin is charged with 29 counts of possession of child pornography and transmission of pornography by electronic device.

death in June 2000, after an extended illness. The Rev. Gary O. Marshall was installed as Countrysides second pastor in May 2001 and is now in his 13th year. As the community grew, so did the congregation and its activities, Kay OConnor became our first fulltime Business Administrator in November 2001 and we took on Rev. Michael Weller, his wife Rachel and children as our missionary family in Ethiopia. In 2002, the church began to work with CDH Partners, Inc. of Atlanta on the design and expansion of Countrysides facilities. In 2003, Ausley Construction was engaged as our contractor. After successful fundraising, a groundbreaking ceremony was held in July. The cornerstone was celebrated in a service of dedication and thanksgiving on Reformation Sunday in 2004. The new sanctuary, equipped with a state-ofthe-art sound system, offices, classrooms and Founders Hall was dedicated in October 2005. The church continues to grow in faith. Today we support missionaries in the Horn of Africa, Jamaica as well as Interfaith Emergency Services and other local agencies in Ocala. We offer Christian education, bible studies, pastoral care and many fellowship groups. We have a Memorial Garden, Chancel and Hand Bell Choirs, Sunday Afternoon Concerts and an Annual Yard Sale. Our Choir Director, Jo Ann Shaw has been with us for many years. Looking back on our 25th Anniversary, we have much to be proud of what we have achieved with Gods help. What seemed impossible once is reality today. We face the future knowing we are a warm and friendly church well placed to deal with the population growth forecast for Southwest SR 200.

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30 ~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com UNTIL I SAY GOOD-BYE By Susan Spencer-Wendel The surprise of Until I Say Good-bye is that this book about Susan SpencerWendels last year of good health, after being diagnosed with Lou Gehrigs disease (ALS), is a memoir devoid of anger, bitterness and self-pity. Rather, its a celebration of the life left to her, filled with optimism and joie de vivre. In coming to terms with the inevitability of her condition, she wanted to make her last good year memorable for her family and friends. I determined to spend my time wisely. To take the trips Id longed to take and experience each pleasure Id longed for as well. To organize what I was leaving behind. To plant a garden of memories for my family to bloom in their futures. I was a writer. ALS could curl my fingers and weaken my body, but it could not take my talent. To that end, this 44-year-old wife, mother of three, and accomplished journalist plans seven trips with the people closest to hertrips including the Yukon, Hungary, the Bahamas, and Cyprus. Although the trips drain her of energy and accelerate the loss of muscle control she forges ahead. Her three children choose their own tripsswimming with the dolphins for her two sons, a shopping trip to Kleins for a bridal gown for her daughterthe only time Susan will see her as a bride. (Marinas first wish, sadly, could not be grantedmeeting the Kardashians.) As she squeezes the best that can be made of the long goodbye, she records the treasured moments, ulMarions Most Wanted Darrin Lamont Bryant, 43, felony violation of probation warrant, cocaine sale, manufacture, delivery and possession, and DUI. Wendy Ann Grice, 38, violation of probation warrant possession of cannabis less than 20 grams, driving while license suspended. Ricky Larson, 40, felony order to take into custody, aggravated assault of law enforcement officer and grand theft of a motor vehicle.

Fredrick D. Thomas, 22, felony capias warrant felony battery. No anger, bitterness or self-pity Bookmark Pat Wellington timately with one thumb on her iPhone. Looking ahead to her immobility, she has a rain-proof chickee installed in the backyard with comfortable chairs for visitors. And not wanting to live without make-up when she can no longer apply it herself, she opts for permanent eyebrows, eyeliner, and lips, even though the process is somewhat painful. Susans tenacity and perseverance is inspiring enough. But the real invitation to her readers is to live in the moment and cherish whatever comes our way.

Presidents and Their First Ladies, dramatically speaking is the creation of the veteran acting and writing team of the Wills. The couple are now in their 16th year of bringing to life the stories of Presidential couples. The Wills are not impersonators, their costumes, dialects, and demeanors recreate these historical characters. Mr. and Mrs. Wills have performed in over 30 performances at seven of the nations Presidential Museums. William researches and creates scripts while Sue edits his work and creates the costumes. Sometimes forgotten are the young people who met, fell in love and the years of triumphs and tragedies that shaped their personalities and their relationship which led up to the 1932 election and their 12 years as First Couple. The focus will be on their private side and how that affected their public lives.

Anti-abuse walk ends in TallahasseeChildhood sexual abuse survivor, educator and nationally-recognized advocate Lauren Book this week completed a 1,500-mile walk across Florida and held a rally on the steps of the historic Old Capitol with the Governor, Cabinet members, legislative leaders and supporters to advocate for more funding for rape crisis centers, legislation to make it easier to prosecute sex offenders and expanded prevention education. Book and Floridas state attorneys are advocating for legislation that would make out-of-court statements from child victims of sexual abuse a stronger tool in trials against their alleged abusers. Books non-profit organization, Laurens Kids, also is seeking to expand Floridas existing abuse prevention curriculum through fifth grade. Throughout the state, Book has spread a message of hope and healing to victims of sexual abuse and has worked to educate communities about their role in abuse prevention. One of her stops was in Ocala. I am working to create a culture of safety. To truly end the epidemic of childhood sexual abuse, we need to stop hiding from it and start talking about it, Book said. We need to empower our children to make choices that keep them safer, and we need to educate adults to recognize the signs of sexual abuse and the traps predators set. 760031 Premier Realty, Inc.

Household To Do List No Job Too Small One Call Does It All 6 ~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com M ajor League Baseball began the end of March with a first-ever game for the Houston Astros as an American League Club. Then 12 games were played on Monday, April 1, when traditional Opening Day returned to a Monday for the first time since 2010. Today marks the 1995 opening of Coors Field in Denver where the Rockies beat the Mets 11-9 in 14 innings. Here in Pun Alley we wind up and throw some stories at you to see if theyre hits, errors or strikeouts. PitchThe conceited new rookie was pitching his first game. He walked the first five men he faced, and the manager took him out of the game. The rookie slammed his glove on the ground as he walked off and yelled, Damn it, the jerk takes me out when I have a no-hitter going. Country wiseA baseball player was sitting on the bench next to the manager. Suddenly, the manager started spouting out names of countries, Germany, Italy, Spain, Britain. The player looked at him and said, What are you trying to say Skipper? to which the manager replied, Europe! Foul balls The difference between baseball and politics is that in baseball youre out if youre caught stealing. One young baseball fan said to his friend, When I grow up, Im gonna play ball for the Orioles. The other boy thumped his chest. He said, When I grow up, theyre gonna have to pay me in money, not birds. My dog enjoys playing baseball. She chases fowls, catches flies, and runs for home. First Baseball Player: You didnt get on so well with that millionaires daughter, eh? Second Baseball Player: Terrible, no hits, no runs, no heiress. The pastries that we had prepared to celebrate our baseball victory could not be eaten, due to lack of a good batter. I attended a baseball game in Bangkok. I left after the fourteenth inning. It was still a Thai ballgame. A philandering baseball player cheated on his wife so often that he was finally thrown out at home. Two old ladies went to a baseball game with a bottle of Four Roses. By the bottom of the fifth the bags were loaded. A football and a baseball walked into a bar. The football said, Youre round! More and more stadiums are bringing back natural grass; all that tobacco juice is killing the Astroturf. My wife claims Im a baseball fanatic. She says all I ever read about is baseball. All I ever talk about is baseball. All I ever think about is baseball. I told her shes way off base. Empire umpire A baseball umpire had a reputation for mean and surly behavior. One Sunday morning the umpire asked his son to jump on his lap and listen as the father read the son the funnies. But the boy refused because the son never sits on the brutish umpire.Another pitcherThe pitcher wasnt having a good day. Finally, the manager walked out to the mound and said, Im sending you to the showers. You cant, said the pitcher. Im hitting my stride. Besides, look whos on deck. I struck him out twice and walked him once. I know, said the manager, but its still the same inning. Close call A woman phoned the UPS cargo center and said, I need a baseball quote. The UPS clerk immediately answered with Yogi Berras famous It aint over til its over! There was a brief moment of silence before the woman asked, What was that? You asked me for a baseball quote, the clerk responded, and that was the first thing that came into my head. Oh, she replied, My husband told me to call and get a baseball quote. The clerk asked if she wanted to ship something, and she said she did. Then he said, Do you mean you want a ballpark figure? Youre outThe umpire crew for a baseball game consists of four men. While games have been played with only three, some crews take an extra man along in the event of an injury or sickness. To keep from being bored, this extra man wanders around the stadium to enjoy the game from different vantage points. One night, the extra umpire tripped and fell from the second tier of a grandstand. An article in the paper reported on his demise, The Decline & Fall of the Roaming Umpire.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Some hits and errors from the baseball world Pun Alley Dick Frank Local woman wins truck in national contest Rocky Brands has announced the grand prize winners of its Were With You Sweepstakes, which began in early 2012 and offered prizes for both Rocky consumers and sales associates at Rocky retail outlets nationwide.

Sales associates at Rocky retailers were entered each time they sold a pair of Rocky Boots, with more than 21,000 total entries being registered during the contest. The consumer contest also awarded a first and second prize valued at $5,000 and $450, respectively.

Col Tim Zacharias (PAS at Detachment 150) and Mike Emig, local respresentative. Dan Hilliard, Director of Withlacoochee Area Residents, Inc. will speak at the Water Well Justice meeting How Well Is Your Well? on Tuesday, April 30, 7 p.m. at Fairfield Presbyterian Church, 15096 N.W. County Road 225, Fairfield. All citizens concerned about their residential water wells and sinkholes are invited to attend. Admission is free. Residential water wells (officially called domestic self-supplied wells) are going dry all over Marion County and Florida and can cost thousands of dollars to replace or repair. Hilliard will address the issues, causes and what you can do to protect your own domestic self-supply well. Domestic self-supplied wells are no match for big wells reaching deeper into the aquifer. Some utility wells are over 1,000 foot deep while some home wells are less than 100 foot deep. Operators of wells in the lower aquifer embrace the idea that they will not harm wells in the upper aquifer. This is not so. In Marion County the upper and lower aquifers are connected. Any water drawn from the lower aquifer eventually affects wells in the upper aquifer. Domestic self-supplied well owners are legal users of Floridas water accounting for just 4 percent of water withdrawals but can expect to bear the brunt of water usage cutback mandates and ultimately be required to put water meters on their wells. Withlacoochee Area Residents, Inc. was organized in 1984 in response to threats to the quality of life of residents along the lower Withlacoochee. Water Well Justice was organized in Marion County 2013 by a group of residents concerned about their wells and the cost of remediation.

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, April 26, 2013 A re the leaders of North Korea crazy? Like a fox! Since the day the North invaded South Korea (June 25, 1950) they have been cunning about their motives in every dispute and negotiation. That so-called forgotten war, (1950-53) was triggered by the Norths frustration at being blocked from unifying Korea under their communist government at the end of World War II. Interestingly, North Korea asked permission to start the war from Soviet Dictator Joseph Stalin, their primary benefactor and adviser at the time. The war began with an unprovoked attack, which the North blamed on South Korea and the U.S. Ever since, North Korean governments have been masters of the blame game. The war was misnamed a police action by the United Nations. We suffered more than 54,000 dead, over a hundred thousand wounded, seven thousand prisoners of war, and more than eight thousand missing in action. Fifteen allied nations also suffered losses. Those of us assigned to make some sense out of broadcasts on Radio Pyongyang, heard accusations about other nations, and claims that North Korea was winning the war. Todays broadcasts mix propaganda with praise for three generations of beloved leaders Kim Il Sung, Kin Jong Il, and Kim Jong Un, the new supreme leader. For decades Korea seemed xenophobic (zen-o-fobic) meaning not comfortable with strangers or foreigners and with good reason. Since the 19th century, France, Manchuria, Japan, Germany, and the U.S tried more than once to establish commercial relations with Korea not always in a friendly fashion. A fourteenth century description of Korea was The Hermit Kingdom. To refer to North Korea today as a hermit country or xenophobic isnt accurate. A humiliating reason for Koreans dislike of foreigners was being overrun by Japan during the Russo Japanese war of 1904-05. Japan annexed Korea in 1910, and until the end of World War II made every effort to obliterate the Korean language and culture. Negotiations to end the Korean War began July 10, 1951, 11 months after the war started. It took weeks to agree on an agenda, during which the North Koreans argued over every detail the shape of the table, placement of chairs, and who would sit where. North Korean negotiators were persistent in their efforts to exhaust the United Nations representatives. When the first meeting place exploded one night, the North Koreans insisted the U.N. had bombed the building, but they would allow no daylight investigation. Relocating the negotiations to a new site at Panmunjom triggered another dispute. Current rattling of nuclear weapons and long-range rockets are true to form for North Korea. Over the past sixty years they have been successful in playing China against Russia, and getting support from both neighbors. The North Koreans know how to play ball with the big boys. They have not revealed the motives and goals behind their present threatening behavior. A catastrophe by mistake is always possible in these situations, but a successful armed robbery is the more likely result. M any of you, Im sure, played cowboys and Indians when you were kids. Its now considered politically incorrect to call it that because, first, the cowboys usually won, and second, the Indians were called that because Christopher Columbus didnt know where he was when he landed. Now theyre called, probably rightly so, Native Americans. About 1 million out of 2.5 million Native Americans live in areas called reservations. These were not created out of the goodness of the heart of the colonists and their descendants; rather, they wanted to contain the Indians and put them where they felt they belonged, even though they were here first. Peace treaties were signed and ratified, and sovereignty was given to the reservations. That meant that our laws didnt apply there; each reservation could set up its own laws. No one in those days could envision that in the future this would cause major problems in the rest of the country, a lot of it associated with gambling. States that have anti-gambling laws have no say in the building of casinos on the reservations. Non-Native Americans flock by the thousands to the reservations to play the games, including some here in Florida. Last week we pointed out some inconsistency in gambling regulation. This is just another one. Now, I dont want to start a range war or anything like that, but Im thinking that it might be time to revisit these treaties that created these reservations. Basically, are they really needed? Native Americans have been absorbed into the population. They have opportunities that were not even remotely available 200 years ago. Many of them go to colleges and universities, earn advance degrees and work in the business world of the United States. They do not need the protection of the reservation they are educated, talented and self-sufficient. But because of that, shouldnt they also be subject to laws of the country and state in which they live? That gets us back to gambling. Sometime back, some smart individual figured out that the anti-gambling laws of a state wouldnt apply on a reservation. So the casinos started sprouting up all over, including in Florida. If just the Native Americans gambled in their casinos, that would be fine. But as I said before, non-Native Americans provide the bulk of the customers. I wonder how many of those who visit the casinos declare their winnings on their income tax. Just from what Ive been reading recently, it seems that gambling establishments, especially here in Florida, prey on the senior citizens. Just watch who goes in and out of the Internet cafes, if they are allowed to reopen. Our federal government needs to take a long look at these establishments on the reservations, see who bankrolls them, etc. A couple hundred years ago Americans needed protection from the Native Americans, who were fighting to keep their land from being poached by invaders from Europe. Now, Americans need protection from the Native American-run casinos, so the people dont get their savings poached by those who run the gambling establishments. Just like the game of cowboys and Indians, this is a battle for survival, especially for senior citizens. But unlike those childhood games, once someone is down, they may not necessarily get up.

L ets see if we can get this straight. Weve got a seriously injured second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing that were treating and helping keep alive so we can give him the death penalty. Sure, that makes sense. Authorities wanted to talk to him to learn about any help he and his brother might have had in building the bombs that killed three at the Marathon. According to reports, he told them, or rather he wrote down, that they had no help and learned how to build the bomb on the Internet. He also said the motive was not political, it was religious. OK, theyve talked. Now let nature take its course. We realize that it is the duty of doctors and nurses to save lives, regardless of who the patient might be. And evidently, the doctors and nurses at that hospital did their job well. But now that the authorities have the basic information they need, just put him in a jail cell and see what happens. This case isnt over, either. Theres a matter of jurisdiction. The charges against the alleged bomber are federal and could carry the death penalty. However, his lawyers might argue that it was a case of murder, which is a state charge. Heres the rub: Massachusetts as a state doesnt have the death penalty. If the case were ordered into state court, life in prison is the worst he could get. Of course, at age 19, that could be a long time, maybe a tougher punishment than a needle. Meanwhile, another alleged attack plan was foiled when two men were arrested as part of a plot to attack a Canadian train. Officials did not say which train, but news sources singled out a route between Toronto and New York. The Canadians tried to link the two men to Iran, but the Iranians denied the connection. Coming on the heels of the Boston Marathon bombing, this only shows that the celebration of the capture of the second Boston suspect was a bit premature. Yes, it was good to get him off the streets, but evidently it hasnt made the streets safer. There are still many people out there who get a thrill out of seeing Americans in pain, and will go to any lengths to see that thrill realized. We must be vigilant against possible attacks. And its time to reiterate that slogan making its way around: If you see something, say something. Someone might have seen a dropped backpack in Boston, and didnt bother to say anything. Who knows, maybe some lives could have been saved. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

I agree and disagree. The Internet Cafes are much more then a place to go to gamble. You say youve never been to any of them so of course you dont know. We were going to them a couple times a week, and it is not just the gaming that is going on. You see people there time after time, It is more social then any thing else. Every one is talking to everyone, whether you know them or not. It gets you out of the house, and out from in front of that TV you keep falling asleep in front of. You make friends, you sometimes have a dinner or snack with your soft drinks or coffee, all free, or if you like, for the money your using to play the games with. Most of the people you talk to spend $20 if you lose it, you go home, but youve had a couple of hours of laughing, talking and in general having a good time with your new friends or just a few people PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE9

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com youve met today; either way, its fun and you may have won a little money. If not, then you havent lost your life savings, just a few bucks. Either way, you got out of the house, and had some fun, and on certain days youve had something to eat along with you free cold drink or coffee. Id have to say that 85 percent of the people there are senior citizens, and a lot of widows and singles. Now, from what I hear, the cafes they shut down were a bit crooked, and Im all for shutting them down. If youre not running a honest place you need to be shut down. I must say, youre right as to if you shut down this, you need to shut down all gambling Lottery, scratch offs, bingo. Heres what happened (I think). People started going to the cafes, stopped spending so much at lottery and scratch off, less for our beloved state. So what do you do, close them up. I need to say if they do open again, please go there at least twice, maybe try a couple of them, see what you see, a lot of seniors having a good time, talking, laughing, enjoying themselves. The cafes were pumping some life into the old-timers. Linda Opella Oak RunGambling infoI want to commend you on the article you wrote on the Internet Cafes. You hit the nail on the head. What is good for one entity should be good for another. If the establishments were paying taxes as they should be doing (which the state is in dire need of money) they should be allowed to stay open. Many seniors enjoyed meeting friends and relaxing at these facilities. My husband and I enjoyed going once in a while, having a cup of coffee, perhaps a little snack, sometimes a meal, and spending a little time away from every day chores. As for lottery tickets, we stopped buying them, you got more bang for your buck at the Internet Cafes. That is my opinion on the lottery tickets. Kathleen Belculfine Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 BY EMILY HOLUBOWICH, JOEL PACKER AND RACHEL GRAGG Special to the Citizen President Obama just submitted his Fiscal Year 2014 budget to Congress. In the ensuing discussion on how the nation should proceed, hell have to bridge a substantial gulf between the Houses spending plan and the one approved by the Senate in order to end the cycle of fiscal crises that has plagued America for the last several years. To break the stalemate, the president must insist on a bipartisan grand bargain that takes a balanced approach to our nations finances and protects funding for programs that provide critical services to Americans. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has said that every dollar of new debt Congress approves must be accompanied by a dollar in spending cuts. That approach just isnt realistic. Congress has already slashed discretionary spending by $1.5 trillion. If the harmful sequester cuts remain in place, federal spending will have been cut by over $2.5 trillion. Those cuts are four times as large as the increases in revenue that Congress has approved. Slashing discretionary spending wont balance the budget. In fact, you could eliminate all nondefense discretionary programsmedical and scientific research; education and job training; infrastructure; public safety and health; and the national parksand the United States would still run a deficit of half a trillion dollars a year. These cuts are already having a disastrous impact on ordinary Americans lives. Take public health. Thanks to spending cuts Congress has already approved, 650,000 fewer people will receive HIV testing, and nearly 50,000 fewer women will undergo cancer screenings. The National Institutes of Health may be forced to eliminate over 2,000 research grants that seek cures for debilitating diseases such as cancer. Local communities could lose $48 million in funds to fight public health emergencies like natural disasters and outbreaks of disease. Congress is also gutting investments in our future. Nearly 31 million children will lose access to critical education programs, including Head Start. One million at-risk students will be turned away from the Career and Technical Education Programeven though it reduces the high school dropout rate. College is being put out of reach for lowand middle-income families due to cuts to college financial aid. Adult education will suffer, too. The National Skills Coalition predicts that almost two million fewer workers and employers will be able to participate in key employment and training programs in 2013. The casualties will be people like Yasmeen, a single mother in northern California who had been a victim of domestic abuse. While living in a womens shelter with her two toddlers, she participated in a workforce-training program operated by the Jewish Vocational Center in San Francisco. Thanks to the training she received, she was able to obtain a job as a clinic coordinator at the University of California-San Franciscoand get off welfare. Apparently, Congress is not interested in empowering people like Yasmeen to secure better lives for their families. In Utah, a food pantry serving 1,000 poor and hungry Salt Lake City residents has closed thanks to cuts in federal funding. That closure couldnt come at a worse time for the community, as need has tripled in the last five years. Lawmakers must find a better way to bring the federal budget under control. Congress has already forced low-income and working-class Americans to swallow trillions of dollars in cuts to programs that make their lives better. Attempting to balance the budget on their backs will only cause more people to go hungry, deprive more kids of an education, and cast more Americans out of their homes and onto the streets. Unfortunately, the House-passed budget doubles down on these harmful cuts. Thats simply the wrong path to foster economic growth, increase our global competiveness and create more jobs. President Obama and Congress must work together to adopt a more balanced budgetary course. With vital programs shuttering on an almost daily basis, theres no time to waste.

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com J ust a few months back I was so sick I had to go see the doctor. That alone indicates the condition was rather serious. I do not like going to the doctor because you have to sit in the waiting room with sick people. I never know what contagious diseases are lurking in the shadows of that doctors waiting room. My condition progressed to the point where the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage told me to go to the doctor or else. I never want to deal with her or else. I have lived as long as I have lived and have enjoyed the health that I do have because I have not found out her or else. Since I do not have health insurance, every time I go to the doctor it comes out of my own pocket. Recently my pockets have not been very deep. Regardless of how shallow my pockets may be, doctors know how to penetrate to the very depths of my pockets with their special scalpel. The result of my visit to the doctors was that I had double pneumonia and bronchitis. Simply put, I was sick. He gave me a prescription to fill and then said I should spend at least the next two weeks in bed resting. I was in such a state of mind that it sounded like a good idea to me. Of course, I made him write it out as a prescription so I could show it to my wife so she would believe me that Im in bed because Im sick not because Im trying to avoid my chores. The first couple of days I spent in bed hardly conscious of anything around me. I am not sure if I ate during those days are not. I have no recollection of anything conscious during those days. By the beginning of the second week, I was strong enough to get out of bed, put on my bathrobe and get back in bed and rest. It was not long before I could actually put on the bathrobe, go out into the living room, sit down in my easy chair and watch TV. I have never watched as much TV as I did during those several weeks of recuperation. I am not saying there is anything wrong with TV, just that there is not that much right with TV anymore. I did not know how bad TV was until I watched it for about two weeks. During this time I was too sick to read and so settled down to watching TV, that is between naps. I would set a program and leaned back and within two winks of my left eye I was sound asleep. When I say sound asleep, I mean my sleeping was very sound, I did not know what was going on around me. Occasionally I would pierce the world of consciousness and see what was on TV. Then I would fall back into the delightful world of unconsciousness. After a few days of this, I was able to stay in the conscious world a little bit longer and consequently I was watching TV a little bit longer. The thing I found about TV is that TV dominated by chatterboxes. My ears were beginning to have its fill of chatter. I do not believe my ears were created to handle such a steady stream of incoherent verbiage. All day long, my ears were bombarded by noise coming from the mouths of people who had no idea what they were saying. I say that because, if they knew what they were saying and were hearing what I was hearing, I do not think they would be saying it so people could hear. The TV world has been taken over by a hostile terrorist group known as talk shows. Does everybody in the world have a talk show? I have never seen or heard so much talking all of my life. After all, there are only 26 letters in the alphabet, how can people come up with so many words? The airwaves are filled with news talk shows, celebrity talk shows, cooking talk shows, sports talk shows, religious talk shows, talk shows of every variety you could think of and some you No known cure for the Yakety-Yak syndrome Out to Pastor Dr. James Snyder would not even think of. When I say variety, I am referring to the title of the talk show. Once you get beyond the title, everything is the same. The only skill one needs to have for a talk show is, open your mouth and let verbiage flow uncontrollably and the more incoherent the better. Between sneezing and blowing my nose and coughing uncontrollably, I watched some of these shows. Who in the world is watching these shows? Somebody must be. The only reason I was watching them was that I was so sick I could not do anything else. Maybe that is their audience. When I got to the place that I could read without my eyes watering too much, I read what the Bible has to say on the subject. And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you (1 Thessalonians 4:11 KJV). I have come to a somber conclusion; more people talk than listen, which is why the world is in the state it is in. I call it the Yakety-Yak syndrome of which there is no known cure. Rev. James L.

bor 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 352291-2218, email info@JewishMarion.org or visit our website at www.JewishMarion.org.Our Saviour Lutheran Emergency food and personal care assistance is available each Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Marion Oaks, 260 Marion Oaks Lane.

The panel of judges included Jeff Bailey, General Manager of the Hilton Ocala Hotel, Maureen Fannon, a photographer, Patricia Hall, 35-L District Governor of the Lions Club, and Joan Stearns, Vice President of Institutional Advancement for the College of Central Florida Foundation. These judges determined the winners. The first place winner won a check for $1,000, second place, $500, and third place, $300. Each check was made out to the charity of choice. First Place went to model Stacy Rollins, sponsored by the Marion County Literacy Council. Her outfit was designed by Pam Hitchcock. The bodice was made from Ocala Style Magazine covers; the skirt was made from old phone book pages and discarded black trash bags. Her belt was woven from the strapping tape on printer paper boxes. Her charity of choice was the Marion County Literacy Council. Second Place was secured by model Cassandra Jackson, sponsored by Hospice of Marion, Inc. Her team of designers included Kathy Dismuke, Lynn Gracie, Kathy Swanson, and Clarise Walker. The dress structure and wing outline was made form black recycled pet screening with a used feather boa to soften the neckline and back of the dress. Bold and exciting orange wing color was added by using old orange file folders in various shades. Large bags of Lays baked chips and bags of Sun Chips Harvest, and copper label from an orange Vitamin Water Zero were also included. The butterfly white reflective spots were made from recycled aluminum foil and various types of white buttons. Skirt fullness and shape was created by using black extra-large and/or reused bubble wrap for the underskirt. Accessories were made from a recycled necklace, plastic folders, reused shoes, and a sweet potato mesh bag. Her charity of choice was Hospice of Marion, Inc. Third Place was awarded to model Kat McKenzie, sponsored by United Way. Her outfit was designed by Katrina Ganzier. The model used recycled forks to decorate her hair. Her dress was made primarily of plastic rings to resemble fish scales, as well as seashells, plastic found of the beach, rope, seaweed, foam buoys, coral, sponges, and oil left over from an oil spill.

Memorial DayOn May 30 at 11 a.m. the Veterans Club of Cherrywood will host a Memorial Day observance. Everyone is welcome to attend this special service where those who gave their lives in the defense of our country will be honored.

We hope everyone will attend this day of remembrance and share in the fellowship and fun that follows. Spotlight on Excellence In recent days our country has been hit yet again by tragedies that threaten to shake our sense of security and challenge our way of life. The first event was the bombing of the Boston Marathon race which resulted in the death of three individuals and the maiming of scores of others. The second such tragedy was the huge explosion and fire in Texas at a fertilizer plant where many perished with hundreds more injured or homeless. Whether deliberate such as the terrorist attack in Boston or accidental as the catastrophe in West Texas, lives were taken; hundreds of lives were altered for ever, and families were devastated. You might ask what an article on Excellence has to do with such horrors. My answer is this; look at how we responded. In Boston there was anger and a commitment to bring the perpetrators of this heinous act to justice. Law enforcement went all out bringing to bear their resources and training; their courage and their dedication. One MIT officer was killed and another officer grievously wounded but neither the cops nor the citizens let anything slow them down in their relentless pursuit of justice. In Texas, along with innocent employees and residents, many of the victims were volunteer firefighters; police officers and emergency medical personnel. These are the first responders to any horrific event and heroes by any ones standards. Both incidents produced amazing acts of courage and sacrifice by every day Americans both civilian and professional. What is it about the American way of life that produces such men and women? What is it about us that we will run into a burning building or a blazing gun battle in order to save our fellow citizens? When others would cower, our first responders and regular people run in where angels fear to tread. What is it about America that produces citizens with such resolve and purpose; people like Bostonians? In spite of a devastating attack at a public sporting event, they responded by attending a hockey game and baseball game by the thousands. In those arenas they stood proudly and defiantly and with one voice sang the National Anthem. What about the West Texas community and surrounding towns who gathered and are gathering to give aide and comfort to those who lost so much? That is yet another example of service and sacrifice. What makes us Americans so generous with our time and fortunes that we reach out to our neighbors in need?

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Honor Flight On May 23 between 8 and 8:30 p.m. a plane will be arriving at the Ocala International Airport with a very precious cargo. On board will be veterans of World War II returning home after a day of memory and inspiration at the World War II monument in Washington D.C. Honor Flight was instituted in order to give these veterans of that war a chance to see how much their effort and sacrifices were appreciated. They lived through a time in our history when the very survival of this country was in danger. Had it not been for what they accomplished our world would be a very different and more frightening place. The Veterans Club of Cherrywood is asking that all of our residents make plans to be at the airport to welcome home this last flight of veterans. It is very little ask to honor those who gave so much. Please let us know if you can attend. Your vets club will provide everyone who attends with a small flag to wave as the veterans disembark.

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Honor Flight On May 23 between 8 and 8:30 p.m. a plane will be arriving at the Ocala International Airport with a very precious cargo. On board will be veterans of World War II returning home after a day of memory and inspiration at the World War II monument in Washington D.C. Honor Flight was instituted in order to give these veterans of that war a chance to see how much their effort and sacrifices were appreciated. They lived through a time in our history when the very survival of this country was in danger. Had it not been for what they accomplished our world would be a very different and more frightening place. The Veterans Club of Cherrywood is asking that all of our residents make plans to be at the airport to welcome home this last flight of veterans. It is very little ask to honor those who gave so much. Please let us know if you can attend. Your vets club will provide everyone who attends with a small flag to wave as the veterans disembark.

Memorial DayOn May 30 at 11 a.m. the Veterans Club of Cherrywood will host a Memorial Day observance. Everyone is welcome to attend this special service where those who gave their lives in the defense of our country will be honored.

The names of our fallen veterans will be read and President Bill Mahar will present a wreath at our monument.

Immediately following the service, a good old fashioned American picnic will be held. Hot dogs and hamburgers with all the trimmings will be served along with beans and Cole slaw.

We hope everyone will attend this day of remembrance and share in the fellowship and fun that follows. Spotlight on Excellence In recent days our country has been hit yet again by tragedies that threaten to shake our sense of security and challenge our way of life. The first event was the bombing of the Boston Marathon race which resulted in the death of three individuals and the maiming of scores of others. The second such tragedy was the huge explosion and fire in Texas at a fertilizer plant where many perished with hundreds more injured or homeless. Whether deliberate such as the terrorist attack in Boston or accidental as the catastrophe in West Texas, lives were taken; hundreds of lives were altered for ever, and families were devastated. You might ask what an article on Excellence has to do with such horrors. My answer is this; look at how we responded. In Boston there was anger and a commitment to bring the perpetrators of this heinous act to justice. Law enforcement went all out bringing to bear their resources and training; their courage and their dedication. One MIT officer was killed and another officer grievously wounded but neither the cops nor the citizens let anything slow them down in their relentless pursuit of justice. In Texas, along with innocent employees and residents, many of the victims were volunteer firefighters; police officers and emergency medical personnel. These are the first responders to any horrific event and heroes by any ones standards. Both incidents produced amazing acts of courage and sacrifice by every day Americans both civilian and professional. What is it about the American way of life that produces such men and women? What is it about us that we will run into a burning building or a blazing gun battle in order to save our fellow citizens? When others would cower, our first responders and regular people run in where angels fear to tread. What is it about America that produces citizens with such resolve and purpose; people like Bostonians? In spite of a devastating attack at a public sporting event, they responded by attending a hockey game and baseball game by the thousands. In those arenas they stood proudly and defiantly and with one voice sang the National Anthem. What about the West Texas community and surrounding towns who gathered and are gathering to give aide and comfort to those who lost so much? That is yet another example of service and sacrifice. What makes us Americans so generous with our time and fortunes that we reach out to our neighbors in need?

bor 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 352291-2218, email info@JewishMarion.org or visit our website at www.JewishMarion.org.Our Saviour Lutheran Emergency food and personal care assistance is available each Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Marion Oaks, 260 Marion Oaks Lane.

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com J ust a few months back I was so sick I had to go see the doctor. That alone indicates the condition was rather serious. I do not like going to the doctor because you have to sit in the waiting room with sick people. I never know what contagious diseases are lurking in the shadows of that doctors waiting room. My condition progressed to the point where the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage told me to go to the doctor or else. I never want to deal with her or else. I have lived as long as I have lived and have enjoyed the health that I do have because I have not found out her or else. Since I do not have health insurance, every time I go to the doctor it comes out of my own pocket. Recently my pockets have not been very deep. Regardless of how shallow my pockets may be, doctors know how to penetrate to the very depths of my pockets with their special scalpel. The result of my visit to the doctors was that I had double pneumonia and bronchitis. Simply put, I was sick. He gave me a prescription to fill and then said I should spend at least the next two weeks in bed resting. I was in such a state of mind that it sounded like a good idea to me. Of course, I made him write it out as a prescription so I could show it to my wife so she would believe me that Im in bed because Im sick not because Im trying to avoid my chores. The first couple of days I spent in bed hardly conscious of anything around me. I am not sure if I ate during those days are not. I have no recollection of anything conscious during those days. By the beginning of the second week, I was strong enough to get out of bed, put on my bathrobe and get back in bed and rest. It was not long before I could actually put on the bathrobe, go out into the living room, sit down in my easy chair and watch TV. I have never watched as much TV as I did during those several weeks of recuperation. I am not saying there is anything wrong with TV, just that there is not that much right with TV anymore. I did not know how bad TV was until I watched it for about two weeks. During this time I was too sick to read and so settled down to watching TV, that is between naps. I would set a program and leaned back and within two winks of my left eye I was sound asleep. When I say sound asleep, I mean my sleeping was very sound, I did not know what was going on around me. Occasionally I would pierce the world of consciousness and see what was on TV. Then I would fall back into the delightful world of unconsciousness. After a few days of this, I was able to stay in the conscious world a little bit longer and consequently I was watching TV a little bit longer. The thing I found about TV is that TV dominated by chatterboxes. My ears were beginning to have its fill of chatter. I do not believe my ears were created to handle such a steady stream of incoherent verbiage. All day long, my ears were bombarded by noise coming from the mouths of people who had no idea what they were saying. I say that because, if they knew what they were saying and were hearing what I was hearing, I do not think they would be saying it so people could hear. The TV world has been taken over by a hostile terrorist group known as talk shows. Does everybody in the world have a talk show? I have never seen or heard so much talking all of my life. After all, there are only 26 letters in the alphabet, how can people come up with so many words? The airwaves are filled with news talk shows, celebrity talk shows, cooking talk shows, sports talk shows, religious talk shows, talk shows of every variety you could think of and some you No known cure for the Yakety-Yak syndrome Out to Pastor Dr. James Snyder would not even think of. When I say variety, I am referring to the title of the talk show. Once you get beyond the title, everything is the same. The only skill one needs to have for a talk show is, open your mouth and let verbiage flow uncontrollably and the more incoherent the better. Between sneezing and blowing my nose and coughing uncontrollably, I watched some of these shows. Who in the world is watching these shows? Somebody must be. The only reason I was watching them was that I was so sick I could not do anything else. Maybe that is their audience. When I got to the place that I could read without my eyes watering too much, I read what the Bible has to say on the subject. And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you (1 Thessalonians 4:11 KJV). I have come to a somber conclusion; more people talk than listen, which is why the world is in the state it is in. I call it the Yakety-Yak syndrome of which there is no known cure. Rev. James L.

If not, then you havent lost your life savings, just a few bucks. Either way, you got out of the house, and had some fun, and on certain days youve had something to eat along with you free cold drink or coffee. Id have to say that 85 percent of the people there are senior citizens, and a lot of widows and singles. Now, from what I hear, the cafes they shut down were a bit crooked, and Im all for shutting them down. If youre not running a honest place you need to be shut down. I must say, youre right as to if you shut down this, you need to shut down all gambling Lottery, scratch offs, bingo. Heres what happened (I think). People started going to the cafes, stopped spending so much at lottery and scratch off, less for our beloved state. So what do you do, close them up. I need to say if they do open again, please go there at least twice, maybe try a couple of them, see what you see, a lot of seniors having a good time, talking, laughing, enjoying themselves. The cafes were pumping some life into the old-timers. Linda Opella Oak RunGambling infoI want to commend you on the article you wrote on the Internet Cafes. You hit the nail on the head. What is good for one entity should be good for another. If the establishments were paying taxes as they should be doing (which the state is in dire need of money) they should be allowed to stay open. Many seniors enjoyed meeting friends and relaxing at these facilities. My husband and I enjoyed going once in a while, having a cup of coffee, perhaps a little snack, sometimes a meal, and spending a little time away from every day chores. As for lottery tickets, we stopped buying them, you got more bang for your buck at the Internet Cafes. That is my opinion on the lottery tickets. Kathleen Belculfine Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 BY EMILY HOLUBOWICH, JOEL PACKER AND RACHEL GRAGG Special to the Citizen President Obama just submitted his Fiscal Year 2014 budget to Congress. In the ensuing discussion on how the nation should proceed, hell have to bridge a substantial gulf between the Houses spending plan and the one approved by the Senate in order to end the cycle of fiscal crises that has plagued America for the last several years. To break the stalemate, the president must insist on a bipartisan grand bargain that takes a balanced approach to our nations finances and protects funding for programs that provide critical services to Americans. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has said that every dollar of new debt Congress approves must be accompanied by a dollar in spending cuts. That approach just isnt realistic. Congress has already slashed discretionary spending by $1.5 trillion. If the harmful sequester cuts remain in place, federal spending will have been cut by over $2.5 trillion. Those cuts are four times as large as the increases in revenue that Congress has approved. Slashing discretionary spending wont balance the budget. In fact, you could eliminate all nondefense discretionary programsmedical and scientific research; education and job training; infrastructure; public safety and health; and the national parksand the United States would still run a deficit of half a trillion dollars a year. These cuts are already having a disastrous impact on ordinary Americans lives. Take public health. Thanks to spending cuts Congress has already approved, 650,000 fewer people will receive HIV testing, and nearly 50,000 fewer women will undergo cancer screenings. The National Institutes of Health may be forced to eliminate over 2,000 research grants that seek cures for debilitating diseases such as cancer. Local communities could lose $48 million in funds to fight public health emergencies like natural disasters and outbreaks of disease. Congress is also gutting investments in our future. Nearly 31 million children will lose access to critical education programs, including Head Start. One million at-risk students will be turned away from the Career and Technical Education Programeven though it reduces the high school dropout rate. College is being put out of reach for lowand middle-income families due to cuts to college financial aid. Adult education will suffer, too. The National Skills Coalition predicts that almost two million fewer workers and employers will be able to participate in key employment and training programs in 2013. The casualties will be people like Yasmeen, a single mother in northern California who had been a victim of domestic abuse. While living in a womens shelter with her two toddlers, she participated in a workforce-training program operated by the Jewish Vocational Center in San Francisco. Thanks to the training she received, she was able to obtain a job as a clinic coordinator at the University of California-San Franciscoand get off welfare. Apparently, Congress is not interested in empowering people like Yasmeen to secure better lives for their families. In Utah, a food pantry serving 1,000 poor and hungry Salt Lake City residents has closed thanks to cuts in federal funding. That closure couldnt come at a worse time for the community, as need has tripled in the last five years. Lawmakers must find a better way to bring the federal budget under control. Congress has already forced low-income and working-class Americans to swallow trillions of dollars in cuts to programs that make their lives better. Attempting to balance the budget on their backs will only cause more people to go hungry, deprive more kids of an education, and cast more Americans out of their homes and onto the streets. Unfortunately, the House-passed budget doubles down on these harmful cuts. Thats simply the wrong path to foster economic growth, increase our global competiveness and create more jobs. President Obama and Congress must work together to adopt a more balanced budgetary course. With vital programs shuttering on an almost daily basis, theres no time to waste.

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, April 26, 2013 A re the leaders of North Korea crazy? Like a fox! Since the day the North invaded South Korea (June 25, 1950) they have been cunning about their motives in every dispute and negotiation. That so-called forgotten war, (1950-53) was triggered by the Norths frustration at being blocked from unifying Korea under their communist government at the end of World War II. Interestingly, North Korea asked permission to start the war from Soviet Dictator Joseph Stalin, their primary benefactor and adviser at the time. The war began with an unprovoked attack, which the North blamed on South Korea and the U.S. Ever since, North Korean governments have been masters of the blame game. The war was misnamed a police action by the United Nations. We suffered more than 54,000 dead, over a hundred thousand wounded, seven thousand prisoners of war, and more than eight thousand missing in action. Fifteen allied nations also suffered losses. Those of us assigned to make some sense out of broadcasts on Radio Pyongyang, heard accusations about other nations, and claims that North Korea was winning the war. Todays broadcasts mix propaganda with praise for three generations of beloved leaders Kim Il Sung, Kin Jong Il, and Kim Jong Un, the new supreme leader. For decades Korea seemed xenophobic (zen-o-fobic) meaning not comfortable with strangers or foreigners and with good reason. Since the 19th century, France, Manchuria, Japan, Germany, and the U.S tried more than once to establish commercial relations with Korea not always in a friendly fashion. A fourteenth century description of Korea was The Hermit Kingdom. To refer to North Korea today as a hermit country or xenophobic isnt accurate. A humiliating reason for Koreans dislike of foreigners was being overrun by Japan during the Russo Japanese war of 1904-05. Japan annexed Korea in 1910, and until the end of World War II made every effort to obliterate the Korean language and culture. Negotiations to end the Korean War began July 10, 1951, 11 months after the war started. It took weeks to agree on an agenda, during which the North Koreans argued over every detail the shape of the table, placement of chairs, and who would sit where. North Korean negotiators were persistent in their efforts to exhaust the United Nations representatives. When the first meeting place exploded one night, the North Koreans insisted the U.N. had bombed the building, but they would allow no daylight investigation. Relocating the negotiations to a new site at Panmunjom triggered another dispute. Current rattling of nuclear weapons and long-range rockets are true to form for North Korea. Over the past sixty years they have been successful in playing China against Russia, and getting support from both neighbors. The North Koreans know how to play ball with the big boys. They have not revealed the motives and goals behind their present threatening behavior. A catastrophe by mistake is always possible in these situations, but a successful armed robbery is the more likely result. M any of you, Im sure, played cowboys and Indians when you were kids. Its now considered politically incorrect to call it that because, first, the cowboys usually won, and second, the Indians were called that because Christopher Columbus didnt know where he was when he landed. Now theyre called, probably rightly so, Native Americans. About 1 million out of 2.5 million Native Americans live in areas called reservations. These were not created out of the goodness of the heart of the colonists and their descendants; rather, they wanted to contain the Indians and put them where they felt they belonged, even though they were here first. Peace treaties were signed and ratified, and sovereignty was given to the reservations. That meant that our laws didnt apply there; each reservation could set up its own laws. No one in those days could envision that in the future this would cause major problems in the rest of the country, a lot of it associated with gambling. States that have anti-gambling laws have no say in the building of casinos on the reservations. Non-Native Americans flock by the thousands to the reservations to play the games, including some here in Florida. Last week we pointed out some inconsistency in gambling regulation. This is just another one. Now, I dont want to start a range war or anything like that, but Im thinking that it might be time to revisit these treaties that created these reservations. Basically, are they really needed? Native Americans have been absorbed into the population. They have opportunities that were not even remotely available 200 years ago. Many of them go to colleges and universities, earn advance degrees and work in the business world of the United States. They do not need the protection of the reservation they are educated, talented and self-sufficient. But because of that, shouldnt they also be subject to laws of the country and state in which they live? That gets us back to gambling. Sometime back, some smart individual figured out that the anti-gambling laws of a state wouldnt apply on a reservation. So the casinos started sprouting up all over, including in Florida. If just the Native Americans gambled in their casinos, that would be fine. But as I said before, non-Native Americans provide the bulk of the customers. I wonder how many of those who visit the casinos declare their winnings on their income tax. Just from what Ive been reading recently, it seems that gambling establishments, especially here in Florida, prey on the senior citizens. Just watch who goes in and out of the Internet cafes, if they are allowed to reopen. Our federal government needs to take a long look at these establishments on the reservations, see who bankrolls them, etc. A couple hundred years ago Americans needed protection from the Native Americans, who were fighting to keep their land from being poached by invaders from Europe. Now, Americans need protection from the Native American-run casinos, so the people dont get their savings poached by those who run the gambling establishments. Just like the game of cowboys and Indians, this is a battle for survival, especially for senior citizens. But unlike those childhood games, once someone is down, they may not necessarily get up.

L ets see if we can get this straight. Weve got a seriously injured second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing that were treating and helping keep alive so we can give him the death penalty. Sure, that makes sense. Authorities wanted to talk to him to learn about any help he and his brother might have had in building the bombs that killed three at the Marathon. According to reports, he told them, or rather he wrote down, that they had no help and learned how to build the bomb on the Internet. He also said the motive was not political, it was religious. OK, theyve talked. Now let nature take its course. We realize that it is the duty of doctors and nurses to save lives, regardless of who the patient might be. And evidently, the doctors and nurses at that hospital did their job well. But now that the authorities have the basic information they need, just put him in a jail cell and see what happens. This case isnt over, either. Theres a matter of jurisdiction. The charges against the alleged bomber are federal and could carry the death penalty. However, his lawyers might argue that it was a case of murder, which is a state charge. Heres the rub: Massachusetts as a state doesnt have the death penalty. If the case were ordered into state court, life in prison is the worst he could get. Of course, at age 19, that could be a long time, maybe a tougher punishment than a needle. Meanwhile, another alleged attack plan was foiled when two men were arrested as part of a plot to attack a Canadian train. Officials did not say which train, but news sources singled out a route between Toronto and New York. The Canadians tried to link the two men to Iran, but the Iranians denied the connection. Coming on the heels of the Boston Marathon bombing, this only shows that the celebration of the capture of the second Boston suspect was a bit premature. Yes, it was good to get him off the streets, but evidently it hasnt made the streets safer. There are still many people out there who get a thrill out of seeing Americans in pain, and will go to any lengths to see that thrill realized. We must be vigilant against possible attacks. And its time to reiterate that slogan making its way around: If you see something, say something. Someone might have seen a dropped backpack in Boston, and didnt bother to say anything. Who knows, maybe some lives could have been saved. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of influencing people to be and do their best. You would make an excellent teacher. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Internet cafesI read your commentary on the gambling. I agree and disagree. The Internet Cafes are much more then a place to go to gamble. You say youve never been to any of them so of course you dont know. We were going to them a couple times a week, and it is not just the gaming that is going on. You see people there time after time, It is more social then any thing else. Every one is talking to everyone, whether you know them or not. It gets you out of the house, and out from in front of that TV you keep falling asleep in front of. You make friends, you sometimes have a dinner or snack with your soft drinks or coffee, all free, or if you like, for the money your using to play the games with. Most of the people you talk to spend $20 if you lose it, you go home, but youve had a couple of hours of laughing, talking and in general having a good time with your new friends or just a few people PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE9

Household To Do List No Job Too Small One Call Does It All 6 ~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com M ajor League Baseball began the end of March with a first-ever game for the Houston Astros as an American League Club. Then 12 games were played on Monday, April 1, when traditional Opening Day returned to a Monday for the first time since 2010. Today marks the 1995 opening of Coors Field in Denver where the Rockies beat the Mets 11-9 in 14 innings. Here in Pun Alley we wind up and throw some stories at you to see if theyre hits, errors or strikeouts. PitchThe conceited new rookie was pitching his first game. He walked the first five men he faced, and the manager took him out of the game. The rookie slammed his glove on the ground as he walked off and yelled, Damn it, the jerk takes me out when I have a no-hitter going. Country wiseA baseball player was sitting on the bench next to the manager. Suddenly, the manager started spouting out names of countries, Germany, Italy, Spain, Britain. The player looked at him and said, What are you trying to say Skipper? to which the manager replied, Europe! Foul balls The difference between baseball and politics is that in baseball youre out if youre caught stealing. One young baseball fan said to his friend, When I grow up, Im gonna play ball for the Orioles. The other boy thumped his chest. He said, When I grow up, theyre gonna have to pay me in money, not birds. My dog enjoys playing baseball. She chases fowls, catches flies, and runs for home. First Baseball Player: You didnt get on so well with that millionaires daughter, eh? Second Baseball Player: Terrible, no hits, no runs, no heiress. The pastries that we had prepared to celebrate our baseball victory could not be eaten, due to lack of a good batter. I attended a baseball game in Bangkok. I left after the fourteenth inning. It was still a Thai ballgame. A philandering baseball player cheated on his wife so often that he was finally thrown out at home. Two old ladies went to a baseball game with a bottle of Four Roses. By the bottom of the fifth the bags were loaded. A football and a baseball walked into a bar. The football said, Youre round! More and more stadiums are bringing back natural grass; all that tobacco juice is killing the Astroturf. My wife claims Im a baseball fanatic. She says all I ever read about is baseball. All I ever talk about is baseball. All I ever think about is baseball. I told her shes way off base. Empire umpire A baseball umpire had a reputation for mean and surly behavior. One Sunday morning the umpire asked his son to jump on his lap and listen as the father read the son the funnies. But the boy refused because the son never sits on the brutish umpire.Another pitcherThe pitcher wasnt having a good day. Finally, the manager walked out to the mound and said, Im sending you to the showers. You cant, said the pitcher. Im hitting my stride. Besides, look whos on deck. I struck him out twice and walked him once. I know, said the manager, but its still the same inning. Close call A woman phoned the UPS cargo center and said, I need a baseball quote. The UPS clerk immediately answered with Yogi Berras famous It aint over til its over! There was a brief moment of silence before the woman asked, What was that? You asked me for a baseball quote, the clerk responded, and that was the first thing that came into my head. Oh, she replied, My husband told me to call and get a baseball quote. The clerk asked if she wanted to ship something, and she said she did. Then he said, Do you mean you want a ballpark figure? Youre outThe umpire crew for a baseball game consists of four men. While games have been played with only three, some crews take an extra man along in the event of an injury or sickness. To keep from being bored, this extra man wanders around the stadium to enjoy the game from different vantage points. One night, the extra umpire tripped and fell from the second tier of a grandstand. An article in the paper reported on his demise, The Decline & Fall of the Roaming Umpire.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Some hits and errors from the baseball world Pun Alley Dick Frank Local woman wins truck in national contest Rocky Brands has announced the grand prize winners of its Were With You Sweepstakes, which began in early 2012 and offered prizes for both Rocky consumers and sales associates at Rocky retail outlets nationwide. The Grand Prize winners were Gaye Marie Folsom from Ocala and Rex Read from Clearfield, Pa. Both are now the proud owners of brand new 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 Tradesman trucks. Folsom won the consumer contest, and Read, a manager at Bobs Boots, won the dealer prize. Congratulations to both Gaye and Rex, and we hope the Dodge Ram 1500 Tradesman trucks serve them as well, said Sam Bowman, marketing manager for Rockys outdoor and work divisions. More than 55,000 customers entered the contest at Rocky retail outlets nationwide or online at www.RockyBoots.com. Sales associates at Rocky retailers were entered each time they sold a pair of Rocky Boots, with more than 21,000 total entries being registered during the contest. The consumer contest also awarded a first and second prize valued at $5,000 and $450, respectively.

Dan Hilliard, Director of Withlacoochee Area Residents, Inc. will speak at the Water Well Justice meeting How Well Is Your Well? on Tuesday, April 30, 7 p.m. at Fairfield Presbyterian Church, 15096 N.W. County Road 225, Fairfield. All citizens concerned about their residential water wells and sinkholes are invited to attend. Admission is free. Residential water wells (officially called domestic self-supplied wells) are going dry all over Marion County and Florida and can cost thousands of dollars to replace or repair. Hilliard will address the issues, causes and what you can do to protect your own domestic self-supply well. Domestic self-supplied wells are no match for big wells reaching deeper into the aquifer. Some utility wells are over 1,000 foot deep while some home wells are less than 100 foot deep. Operators of wells in the lower aquifer embrace the idea that they will not harm wells in the upper aquifer. This is not so. In Marion County the upper and lower aquifers are connected. Any water drawn from the lower aquifer eventually affects wells in the upper aquifer. Domestic self-supplied well owners are legal users of Floridas water accounting for just 4 percent of water withdrawals but can expect to bear the brunt of water usage cutback mandates and ultimately be required to put water meters on their wells. Withlacoochee Area Residents, Inc. was organized in 1984 in response to threats to the quality of life of residents along the lower Withlacoochee. Water Well Justice was organized in Marion County 2013 by a group of residents concerned about their wells and the cost of remediation.

Anti-abuse walk ends in TallahasseeChildhood sexual abuse survivor, educator and nationally-recognized advocate Lauren Book this week completed a 1,500-mile walk across Florida and held a rally on the steps of the historic Old Capitol with the Governor, Cabinet members, legislative leaders and supporters to advocate for more funding for rape crisis centers, legislation to make it easier to prosecute sex offenders and expanded prevention education. Book and Floridas state attorneys are advocating for legislation that would make out-of-court statements from child victims of sexual abuse a stronger tool in trials against their alleged abusers. Books non-profit organization, Laurens Kids, also is seeking to expand Floridas existing abuse prevention curriculum through fifth grade. Throughout the state, Book has spread a message of hope and healing to victims of sexual abuse and has worked to educate communities about their role in abuse prevention. One of her stops was in Ocala. I am working to create a culture of safety. To truly end the epidemic of childhood sexual abuse, we need to stop hiding from it and start talking about it, Book said. We need to empower our children to make choices that keep them safer, and we need to educate adults to recognize the signs of sexual abuse and the traps predators set. 760031 Premier Realty, Inc.

death in June 2000, after an extended illness. The Rev. Gary O. Marshall was installed as Countrysides second pastor in May 2001 and is now in his 13th year. As the community grew, so did the congregation and its activities, Kay OConnor became our first fulltime Business Administrator in November 2001 and we took on Rev. Michael Weller, his wife Rachel and children as our missionary family in Ethiopia. In 2002, the church began to work with CDH Partners, Inc. of Atlanta on the design and expansion of Countrysides facilities. In 2003, Ausley Construction was engaged as our contractor. After successful fundraising, a groundbreaking ceremony was held in July. The cornerstone was celebrated in a service of dedication and thanksgiving on Reformation Sunday in 2004. The new sanctuary, equipped with a state-ofthe-art sound system, offices, classrooms and Founders Hall was dedicated in October 2005. The church continues to grow in faith. Today we support missionaries in the Horn of Africa, Jamaica as well as Interfaith Emergency Services and other local agencies in Ocala. We offer Christian education, bible studies, pastoral care and many fellowship groups. We have a Memorial Garden, Chancel and Hand Bell Choirs, Sunday Afternoon Concerts and an Annual Yard Sale. Our Choir Director, Jo Ann Shaw has been with us for many years. Looking back on our 25th Anniversary, we have much to be proud of what we have achieved with Gods help. What seemed impossible once is reality today. We face the future knowing we are a warm and friendly church well placed to deal with the population growth forecast for Southwest SR 200. For further information, please call the church office at 352-2374633. Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30 ~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com UNTIL I SAY GOOD-BYE By Susan Spencer-Wendel The surprise of Until I Say Good-bye is that this book about Susan SpencerWendels last year of good health, after being diagnosed with Lou Gehrigs disease (ALS), is a memoir devoid of anger, bitterness and self-pity. Rather, its a celebration of the life left to her, filled with optimism and joie de vivre. In coming to terms with the inevitability of her condition, she wanted to make her last good year memorable for her family and friends. I determined to spend my time wisely. To take the trips Id longed to take and experience each pleasure Id longed for as well. To organize what I was leaving behind. To plant a garden of memories for my family to bloom in their futures. I was a writer. ALS could curl my fingers and weaken my body, but it could not take my talent. To that end, this 44-year-old wife, mother of three, and accomplished journalist plans seven trips with the people closest to hertrips including the Yukon, Hungary, the Bahamas, and Cyprus. Although the trips drain her of energy and accelerate the loss of muscle control she forges ahead. Her three children choose their own tripsswimming with the dolphins for her two sons, a shopping trip to Kleins for a bridal gown for her daughterthe only time Susan will see her as a bride. (Marinas first wish, sadly, could not be grantedmeeting the Kardashians.) As she squeezes the best that can be made of the long goodbye, she records the treasured moments, ulMarions Most Wanted Darrin Lamont Bryant, 43, felony violation of probation warrant, cocaine sale, manufacture, delivery and possession, and DUI.

Looking ahead to her immobility, she has a rain-proof chickee installed in the backyard with comfortable chairs for visitors. And not wanting to live without make-up when she can no longer apply it herself, she opts for permanent eyebrows, eyeliner, and lips, even though the process is somewhat painful. Susans tenacity and perseverance is inspiring enough. But the real invitation to her readers is to live in the moment and cherish whatever comes our way.

Presidents and Their First Ladies, dramatically speaking is the creation of the veteran acting and writing team of the Wills. The couple are now in their 16th year of bringing to life the stories of Presidential couples. The Wills are not impersonators, their costumes, dialects, and demeanors recreate these historical characters. Mr. and Mrs. Wills have performed in over 30 performances at seven of the nations Presidential Museums. William researches and creates scripts while Sue edits his work and creates the costumes. Sometimes forgotten are the young people who met, fell in love and the years of triumphs and tragedies that shaped their personalities and their relationship which led up to the 1932 election and their 12 years as First Couple.

Central Florida Mr. Graves sat on a panel concerning restorative justice in which participants concluded that the public wants compliance but is not willing to pay for it. Ms. Holt continued that In Florida last year, the 20 public defender offices handled more than three-quarters of a million court-appointed cases and appeals. In the past 50 years, the public defender offices have become the primary providers of criminal defense services, and the 20 public defenders offices are the states firstline of criminal defense. This 50-year anniversary of a Florida case that became a cornerstone of our nations justice system is an excellent time to reflect on how far weve come and to renew our commitment to moving our goals forward. Please join the Friday Forums community conversation about public defenders who serve as a critical check and balance against the vast power of the state when brought to bear upon an individual charged with committing a crime.

At 10:33 p.m. Saturday, Marion County Fire Rescue responded to Hampton Manor Assisted Living Facility, 10590 S.E. 62nd Ave. Road, Belleview, due to damage and danger created by a large tree, which fell on the facilitys roof. No one was injured. However, due to the structural damage, the compromised electrical system and the lack of water to certain areas of the building, all 52 residents were evacuated. MCFR crew members assisted the Hampton Manor staff in transporting residents from their rooms to Hampton Manor-operated vans and shuttles, which took 47 of the residents to nearby Hampton Manor facilities; the other five residents were picked-up by family members. The tree landed atop the facilitys back dining room and broke the fire suppression system, which caused its pipes to flood a section of the center with approximately three inches of water. Twelve MCFR units and approximately 25 crew members assisted with the evacuation; Officials estimate it will take at least a week for the facility to make the necessary repairs. Arrested Samuel Lynn Irvin, 61, of Summerfield, is in the Marion County Jail. Irvin is charged with 29 counts of possession of child pornography and transmission of pornography by electronic device.

CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & Businesses FRIDAY, April 26, 2013 VOLUME 17 NUMBER 48 www.smcitizen.com OF NOTE Public defender to speak at Friday ForumMichael Graves, Public Defender for the five county 5th judicial district which is headquartered in Marion County, will speak when the Friday Forum luncheon series next convenes at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, May 10, at Buffet City located at the corner of State Road 200 and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Ocala. Cost is $10 per person payable to the restaurant. In this age of the new Jim Crow, people from all walks of life who share an interest in our community and the welfare of all our people are invited to attend what we believe will be an expansion of our knowledge and understanding about our responsibilities to indigent defendants in criminal cases in compliance with the Sixth Amendment and the Gideon v. Wainwright decision by the Supreme Court 50 years ago. Justice Hugo Black wrote in the decision that reason and reflection require us to recognize that in our adversary system of criminal justice, any person hauled into court who is too poor to hire a lawyer, cannot be assured a fair trial unless counsel is provided for him. This seems to us to be an obvious truth. Julianne Holt, president of the Florida Public Defenders Association, wrote in March 2013 that Gideon v. Wainwright is the foundation of the Florida Public Defender system. She said The Florida Legislature provides the funds necessary for the elected public defenders to employ lawyers, experts, psychologists, investigators and the other services necessary to defend indigent clients.

The Relay started Friday and lasted through the night to Saturday morning.PHOTOS BY JIM CLARK Countryside Presbyterian Church will celebrate its 25th anniversary at a special service on Sunday, May 5, at 10:30 a.m. led by Rev. Gary O. Marshall. The church is at 7768 S.W. State Road 200 in Ocala. Guests include the Rev. Steven Benz, Interim Executive Presbyter and the Rev. Alisun Donovan, Associate Executive Presbyter from the Presbytery of St. Augustine and four of our charter members Polly Arit, Willa French, Liz Milleson and Cleone Redman. The Chancel and Hand Bell Choirs as well as guest musicians will perform. A catered lunch will be served to our members at the Oak Run Country club donated by an anonymous benefactor. In 1987 representatives from First Presbyterian Church and Fort King Presbyterian Church decided that there was a need for a Presbyterian Church on Southwest SR 200. The chartering service of Countryside Presbyterian Church and the installation of Rev. Robert K. McGirt took place on May 15, 1988 at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Ocala. The dedicated few who began meeting in Roberts Funeral Home (formerly Bruce West) on SR 200 took the first steps resulting in the founding of our church. Their initial sacrifice and continued support of the church made it possible for the church to prosper and grow. Pastor Robert K. McGirt led the new congregation in worship for about three years. Under his leadership, the first building consisting of a multipurpose room, used as a sanctuary, two offices, a classroom, kitchen and nursery was completed in October 1990. The mortgage on this building was paid ahead of schedule in 2001. Rev. McGirt served until his Countryside marks 25th anniversary PLEASESEECHURCH PAGE3 PLEASESEEFORUM PAGE2 *See sales person for details. Pictures for illustration purposes only.

CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & BusinessesFRIDAY, April 26, 2013 VOLUME 17 NUMBER 48 www.smcitizen.com OF NOTE Public defender to speak at Friday ForumMichael Graves, Public Defender for the five county 5th judicial district which is headquartered in Marion County, will speak when the Friday Forum luncheon series next convenes at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, May 10, at Buffet City located at the corner of State Road 200 and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Ocala. Cost is $10 per person payable to the restaurant. In this age of the new Jim Crow, people from all walks of life who share an interest in our community and the welfare of all our people are invited to attend what we believe will be an expansion of our knowledge and understanding about our responsibilities to indigent defendants in criminal cases in compliance with the Sixth Amendment and the Gideon v. Wainwright decision by the Supreme Court 50 years ago. Justice Hugo Black wrote in the decision that reason and reflection require us to recognize that in our adversary system of criminal justice, any person hauled into court who is too poor to hire a lawyer, cannot be assured a fair trial unless counsel is provided for him. This seems to us to be an obvious truth. Julianne Holt, president of the Florida Public Defenders Association, wrote in March 2013 that Gideon v. Wainwright is the foundation of the Florida Public Defender system. She said The Florida Legislature provides the funds necessary for the elected public defenders to employ lawyers, experts, psychologists, investigators and the other services necessary to defend indigent clients.

At left, the Caped Cancer Crusaders had a large contingent at the event. The Relay started Friday and lasted through the night to Saturday morning.PHOTOS BY JIM CLARK Countryside Presbyterian Church will celebrate its 25th anniversary at a special service on Sunday, May 5, at 10:30 a.m. led by Rev. Gary O. Marshall. The church is at 7768 S.W. State Road 200 in Ocala. Guests include the Rev. Steven Benz, Interim Executive Presbyter and the Rev. Alisun Donovan, Associate Executive Presbyter from the Presbytery of St. Augustine and four of our charter members Polly Arit, Willa French, Liz Milleson and Cleone Redman. The Chancel and Hand Bell Choirs as well as guest musicians will perform. A catered lunch will be served to our members at the Oak Run Country club donated by an anonymous benefactor. In 1987 representatives from First Presbyterian Church and Fort King Presbyterian Church decided that there was a need for a Presbyterian Church on Southwest SR 200. The chartering service of Countryside Presbyterian Church and the installation of Rev. Robert K. McGirt took place on May 15, 1988 at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Ocala. The dedicated few who began meeting in Roberts Funeral Home (formerly Bruce West) on SR 200 took the first steps resulting in the founding of our church. Their initial sacrifice and continued support of the church made it possible for the church to prosper and grow. Pastor Robert K. McGirt led the new congregation in worship for about three years. Under his leadership, the first building consisting of a multipurpose room, used as a sanctuary, two offices, a classroom, kitchen and nursery was completed in October 1990. The mortgage on this building was paid ahead of schedule in 2001. Rev. McGirt served until his Countryside marks 25th anniversary PLEASESEECHURCH, PAGE3 PLEASESEEFORUM, PAGE2 *See sales person for details. Pictures for illustration purposes only.

Central Florida Mr. Graves sat on a panel concerning restorative justice in which participants concluded that the public wants compliance but is not willing to pay for it. Ms. Holt continued that In Florida last year, the 20 public defender offices handled more than three-quarters of a million court-appointed cases and appeals. In the past 50 years, the public defender offices have become the primary providers of criminal defense services, and the 20 public defenders offices are the states firstline of criminal defense. This 50-year anniversary of a Florida case that became a cornerstone of our nations justice system is an excellent time to reflect on how far weve come and to renew our commitment to moving our goals forward. Please join the Friday Forums community conversation about public defenders who serve as a critical check and balance against the vast power of the state when brought to bear upon an individual charged with committing a crime.

At 10:33 p.m. Saturday, Marion County Fire Rescue responded to Hampton Manor Assisted Living Facility, 10590 S.E. 62nd Ave. Road, Belleview, due to damage and danger created by a large tree, which fell on the facilitys roof. No one was injured. However, due to the structural damage, the compromised electrical system and the lack of water to certain areas of the building, all 52 residents were evacuated. MCFR crew members assisted the Hampton Manor staff in transporting residents from their rooms to Hampton Manor-operated vans and shuttles, which took 47 of the residents to nearby Hampton Manor facilities; the other five residents were picked-up by family members. The tree landed atop the facilitys back dining room and broke the fire suppression system, which caused its pipes to flood a section of the center with approximately three inches of water. Twelve MCFR units and approximately 25 crew members assisted with the evacuation; Officials estimate it will take at least a week for the facility to make the necessary repairs. Arrested Samuel Lynn Irvin, 61, of Summerfield, is in the Marion County Jail. Irvin is charged with 29 counts of possession of child pornography and transmission of pornography by electronic device.

death in June 2000, after an extended illness. The Rev. Gary O. Marshall was installed as Countrysides second pastor in May 2001 and is now in his 13th year. As the community grew, so did the congregation and its activities, Kay OConnor became our first fulltime Business Administrator in November 2001 and we took on Rev. Michael Weller, his wife Rachel and children as our missionary family in Ethiopia. In 2002, the church began to work with CDH Partners, Inc. of Atlanta on the design and expansion of Countrysides facilities. In 2003, Ausley Construction was engaged as our contractor. After successful fundraising, a groundbreaking ceremony was held in July. The cornerstone was celebrated in a service of dedication and thanksgiving on Reformation Sunday in 2004. The new sanctuary, equipped with a state-ofthe-art sound system, offices, classrooms and Founders Hall was dedicated in October 2005. The church continues to grow in faith. Today we support missionaries in the Horn of Africa, Jamaica as well as Interfaith Emergency Services and other local agencies in Ocala. We offer Christian education, bible studies, pastoral care and many fellowship groups. We have a Memorial Garden, Chancel and Hand Bell Choirs, Sunday Afternoon Concerts and an Annual Yard Sale. Our Choir Director, Jo Ann Shaw has been with us for many years. Looking back on our 25th Anniversary, we have much to be proud of what we have achieved with Gods help. What seemed impossible once is reality today. We face the future knowing we are a warm and friendly church well placed to deal with the population growth forecast for Southwest SR 200.

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com UNTIL I SAY GOOD-BYE By Susan Spencer-Wendel The surprise of Until I Say Good-bye is that this book about Susan SpencerWendels last year of good health, after being diagnosed with Lou Gehrigs disease (ALS), is a memoir devoid of anger, bitterness and self-pity. Rather, its a celebration of the life left to her, filled with optimism and joie de vivre. In coming to terms with the inevitability of her condition, she wanted to make her last good year memorable for her family and friends. I determined to spend my time wisely. To take the trips Id longed to take and experience each pleasure Id longed for as well. To organize what I was leaving behind. To plant a garden of memories for my family to bloom in their futures. I was a writer. ALS could curl my fingers and weaken my body, but it could not take my talent. To that end, this 44-year-old wife, mother of three, and accomplished journalist plans seven trips with the people closest to hertrips including the Yukon, Hungary, the Bahamas, and Cyprus. Although the trips drain her of energy and accelerate the loss of muscle control she forges ahead. Her three children choose their own tripsswimming with the dolphins for her two sons, a shopping trip to Kleins for a bridal gown for her daughterthe only time Susan will see her as a bride. (Marinas first wish, sadly, could not be grantedmeeting the Kardashians.) As she squeezes the best that can be made of the long goodbye, she records the treasured moments, ulMarions Most Wanted Darrin Lamont Bryant, 43, felony violation of probation warrant, cocaine sale, manufacture, delivery and possession, and DUI.

Looking ahead to her immobility, she has a rain-proof chickee installed in the backyard with comfortable chairs for visitors. And not wanting to live without make-up when she can no longer apply it herself, she opts for permanent eyebrows, eyeliner, and lips, even though the process is somewhat painful. Susans tenacity and perseverance is inspiring enough. But the real invitation to her readers is to live in the moment and cherish whatever comes our way.

Presidents and Their First Ladies, dramatically speaking is the creation of the veteran acting and writing team of the Wills. The couple are now in their 16th year of bringing to life the stories of Presidential couples. The Wills are not impersonators, their costumes, dialects, and demeanors recreate these historical characters. Mr. and Mrs. Wills have performed in over 30 performances at seven of the nations Presidential Museums. William researches and creates scripts while Sue edits his work and creates the costumes. Sometimes forgotten are the young people who met, fell in love and the years of triumphs and tragedies that shaped their personalities and their relationship which led up to the 1932 election and their 12 years as First Couple. The focus will be on their private side and how that affected their public lives.

Anti-abuse walk ends in TallahasseeChildhood sexual abuse survivor, educator and nationally-recognized advocate Lauren Book this week completed a 1,500-mile walk across Florida and held a rally on the steps of the historic Old Capitol with the Governor, Cabinet members, legislative leaders and supporters to advocate for more funding for rape crisis centers, legislation to make it easier to prosecute sex offenders and expanded prevention education. Book and Floridas state attorneys are advocating for legislation that would make out-of-court statements from child victims of sexual abuse a stronger tool in trials against their alleged abusers. Books non-profit organization, Laurens Kids, also is seeking to expand Floridas existing abuse prevention curriculum through fifth grade. Throughout the state, Book has spread a message of hope and healing to victims of sexual abuse and has worked to educate communities about their role in abuse prevention. One of her stops was in Ocala. I am working to create a culture of safety. To truly end the epidemic of childhood sexual abuse, we need to stop hiding from it and start talking about it, Book said. We need to empower our children to make choices that keep them safer, and we need to educate adults to recognize the signs of sexual abuse and the traps predators set. 760031 Premier Realty, Inc.

Household To Do List No Job Too Small One Call Does It All 6~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Major League Baseball began the end of March with a first-ever game for the Houston Astros as an American League Club. Then 12 games were played on Monday, April 1, when traditional Opening Day returned to a Monday for the first time since 2010. Today marks the 1995 opening of Coors Field in Denver where the Rockies beat the Mets 11-9 in 14 innings. Here in Pun Alley we wind up and throw some stories at you to see if theyre hits, errors or strikeouts.PitchThe conceited new rookie was pitching his first game. He walked the first five men he faced, and the manager took him out of the game. The rookie slammed his glove on the ground as he walked off and yelled, Damn it, the jerk takes me out when I have a no-hitter going.Country wiseA baseball player was sitting on the bench next to the manager. Suddenly, the manager started spouting out names of countries, Germany, Italy, Spain, Britain. The player looked at him and said, What are you trying to say Skipper? to which the manager replied, Europe!Foul ballsThe difference between baseball and politics is that in baseball youre out if youre caught stealing. One young baseball fan said to his friend, When I grow up, Im gonna play ball for the Orioles. The other boy thumped his chest. He said, When I grow up, theyre gonna have to pay me in money, not birds. My dog enjoys playing baseball. She chases fowls, catches flies, and runs for home. First Baseball Player: You didnt get on so well with that millionaires daughter, eh? Second Baseball Player: Terrible, no hits, no runs, no heiress. The pastries that we had prepared to celebrate our baseball victory could not be eaten, due to lack of a good batter. I attended a baseball game in Bangkok. I left after the fourteenth inning. It was still a Thai ballgame. A philandering baseball player cheated on his wife so often that he was finally thrown out at home. Two old ladies went to a baseball game with a bottle of Four Roses. By the bottom of the fifth the bags were loaded. A football and a baseball walked into a bar. The football said, Youre round! More and more stadiums are bringing back natural grass; all that tobacco juice is killing the Astroturf. My wife claims Im a baseball fanatic. She says all I ever read about is baseball. All I ever talk about is baseball. All I ever think about is baseball. I told her shes way off base.Empire umpireA baseball umpire had a reputation for mean and surly behavior. One Sunday morning the umpire asked his son to jump on his lap and listen as the father read the son the funnies. But the boy refused because the son never sits on the brutish umpire.Another pitcherThe pitcher wasnt having a good day. Finally, the manager walked out to the mound and said, Im sending you to the showers. You cant, said the pitcher. Im hitting my stride. Besides, look whos on deck. I struck him out twice and walked him once. I know, said the manager, but its still the same inning.Close callA woman phoned the UPS cargo center and said, I need a baseball quote. The UPS clerk immediately answered with Yogi Berras famous It aint over til its over! There was a brief moment of silence before the woman asked, What was that? You asked me for a baseball quote, the clerk responded, and that was the first thing that came into my head. Oh, she replied, My husband told me to call and get a baseball quote. The clerk asked if she wanted to ship something, and she said she did. Then he said, Do you mean you want a ballpark figure?Youre outThe umpire crew for a baseball game consists of four men. While games have been played with only three, some crews take an extra man along in the event of an injury or sickness. To keep from being bored, this extra man wanders around the stadium to enjoy the game from different vantage points. One night, the extra umpire tripped and fell from the second tier of a grandstand. An article in the paper reported on his demise, The Decline & Fall of the Roaming Umpire.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Some hits and errors from the baseball world Pun Alley Dick Frank Local woman wins truck in national contestRocky Brands has announced the grand prize winners of its Were With You Sweepstakes, which began in early 2012 and offered prizes for both Rocky consumers and sales associates at Rocky retail outlets nationwide. The Grand Prize winners were Gaye Marie Folsom from Ocala and Rex Read from Clearfield, Pa. Both are now the proud owners of brand new 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 Tradesman trucks. Folsom won the consumer contest, and Read, a manager at Bobs Boots, won the dealer prize. Congratulations to both Gaye and Rex, and we hope the Dodge Ram 1500 Tradesman trucks serve them as well, said Sam Bowman, marketing manager for Rockys outdoor and work divisions. More than 55,000 customers entered the contest at Rocky retail outlets nationwide or online at www.RockyBoots.com. Sales associates at Rocky retailers were entered each time they sold a pair of Rocky Boots, with more than 21,000 total entries being registered during the contest.

Col Tim Zacharias (PAS at Detachment 150) and Mike Emig, local respresentative. Dan Hilliard, Director of Withlacoochee Area Residents, Inc. will speak at the Water Well Justice meeting How Well Is Your Well? on Tuesday, April 30, 7 p.m. at Fairfield Presbyterian Church, 15096 N.W. County Road 225, Fairfield. All citizens concerned about their residential water wells and sinkholes are invited to attend. Admission is free. Residential water wells (officially called domestic self-supplied wells) are going dry all over Marion County and Florida and can cost thousands of dollars to replace or repair. Hilliard will address the issues, causes and what you can do to protect your own domestic self-supply well. Domestic self-supplied wells are no match for big wells reaching deeper into the aquifer. Some utility wells are over 1,000 foot deep while some home wells are less than 100 foot deep. Operators of wells in the lower aquifer embrace the idea that they will not harm wells in the upper aquifer. This is not so. In Marion County the upper and lower aquifers are connected. Any water drawn from the lower aquifer eventually affects wells in the upper aquifer. Domestic self-supplied well owners are legal users of Floridas water accounting for just 4 percent of water withdrawals but can expect to bear the brunt of water usage cutback mandates and ultimately be required to put water meters on their wells. Withlacoochee Area Residents, Inc. was organized in 1984 in response to threats to the quality of life of residents along the lower Withlacoochee. Water Well Justice was organized in Marion County 2013 by a group of residents concerned about their wells and the cost of remediation.

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, April 26, 2013 Are the leaders of North Korea crazy? Like a fox! Since the day the North invaded South Korea (June 25, 1950) they have been cunning about their motives in every dispute and negotiation. That so-called forgotten war, (1950-53) was triggered by the Norths frustration at being blocked from unifying Korea under their communist government at the end of World War II. Interestingly, North Korea asked permission to start the war from Soviet Dictator Joseph Stalin, their primary benefactor and adviser at the time. The war began with an unprovoked attack, which the North blamed on South Korea and the U.S. Ever since, North Korean governments have been masters of the blame game. The war was misnamed a police action by the United Nations. We suffered more than 54,000 dead, over a hundred thousand wounded, seven thousand prisoners of war, and more than eight thousand missing in action. Fifteen allied nations also suffered losses. Those of us assigned to make some sense out of broadcasts on Radio Pyongyang, heard accusations about other nations, and claims that North Korea was winning the war. Todays broadcasts mix propaganda with praise for three generations of beloved leaders Kim Il Sung, Kin Jong Il, and Kim Jong Un, the new supreme leader. For decades Korea seemed xenophobic (zen-o-fobic) meaning not comfortable with strangers or foreigners and with good reason. Since the 19th century, France, Manchuria, Japan, Germany, and the U.S tried more than once to establish commercial relations with Korea not always in a friendly fashion. A fourteenth century description of Korea was The Hermit Kingdom. To refer to North Korea today as a hermit country or xenophobic isnt accurate. A humiliating reason for Koreans dislike of foreigners was being overrun by Japan during the Russo Japanese war of 1904-05. Japan annexed Korea in 1910, and until the end of World War II made every effort to obliterate the Korean language and culture. Negotiations to end the Korean War began July 10, 1951, 11 months after the war started. It took weeks to agree on an agenda, during which the North Koreans argued over every detail the shape of the table, placement of chairs, and who would sit where. North Korean negotiators were persistent in their efforts to exhaust the United Nations representatives. When the first meeting place exploded one night, the North Koreans insisted the U.N. had bombed the building, but they would allow no daylight investigation. Relocating the negotiations to a new site at Panmunjom triggered another dispute. Current rattling of nuclear weapons and long-range rockets are true to form for North Korea. Over the past sixty years they have been successful in playing China against Russia, and getting support from both neighbors. The North Koreans know how to play ball with the big boys. They have not revealed the motives and goals behind their present threatening behavior. A catastrophe by mistake is always possible in these situations, but a successful armed robbery is the more likely result. Many of you, Im sure, played cowboys and Indians when you were kids. Its now considered politically incorrect to call it that because, first, the cowboys usually won, and second, the Indians were called that because Christopher Columbus didnt know where he was when he landed. Now theyre called, probably rightly so, Native Americans. About 1 million out of 2.5 million Native Americans live in areas called reservations. These were not created out of the goodness of the heart of the colonists and their descendants; rather, they wanted to contain the Indians and put them where they felt they belonged, even though they were here first. Peace treaties were signed and ratified, and sovereignty was given to the reservations. That meant that our laws didnt apply there; each reservation could set up its own laws. No one in those days could envision that in the future this would cause major problems in the rest of the country, a lot of it associated with gambling. States that have anti-gambling laws have no say in the building of casinos on the reservations. Non-Native Americans flock by the thousands to the reservations to play the games, including some here in Florida. Last week we pointed out some inconsistency in gambling regulation. This is just another one. Now, I dont want to start a range war or anything like that, but Im thinking that it might be time to revisit these treaties that created these reservations. Basically, are they really needed? Native Americans have been absorbed into the population. They have opportunities that were not even remotely available 200 years ago. Many of them go to colleges and universities, earn advance degrees and work in the business world of the United States. They do not need the protection of the reservation they are educated, talented and self-sufficient. But because of that, shouldnt they also be subject to laws of the country and state in which they live? That gets us back to gambling. Sometime back, some smart individual figured out that the anti-gambling laws of a state wouldnt apply on a reservation. So the casinos started sprouting up all over, including in Florida. If just the Native Americans gambled in their casinos, that would be fine. But as I said before, non-Native Americans provide the bulk of the customers. I wonder how many of those who visit the casinos declare their winnings on their income tax. Just from what Ive been reading recently, it seems that gambling establishments, especially here in Florida, prey on the senior citizens. Just watch who goes in and out of the Internet cafes, if they are allowed to reopen. Our federal government needs to take a long look at these establishments on the reservations, see who bankrolls them, etc. A couple hundred years ago Americans needed protection from the Native Americans, who were fighting to keep their land from being poached by invaders from Europe. Now, Americans need protection from the Native American-run casinos, so the people dont get their savings poached by those who run the gambling establishments. Just like the game of cowboys and Indians, this is a battle for survival, especially for senior citizens. But unlike those childhood games, once someone is down, they may not necessarily get up.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Lets see if we can get this straight. Weve got a seriously injured second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing that were treating and helping keep alive so we can give him the death penalty. Sure, that makes sense. Authorities wanted to talk to him to learn about any help he and his brother might have had in building the bombs that killed three at the Marathon. According to reports, he told them, or rather he wrote down, that they had no help and learned how to build the bomb on the Internet. He also said the motive was not political, it was religious. OK, theyve talked. Now let nature take its course. We realize that it is the duty of doctors and nurses to save lives, regardless of who the patient might be. And evidently, the doctors and nurses at that hospital did their job well. But now that the authorities have the basic information they need, just put him in a jail cell and see what happens. This case isnt over, either. Theres a matter of jurisdiction. The charges against the alleged bomber are federal and could carry the death penalty. However, his lawyers might argue that it was a case of murder, which is a state charge. Heres the rub: Massachusetts as a state doesnt have the death penalty. If the case were ordered into state court, life in prison is the worst he could get. Of course, at age 19, that could be a long time, maybe a tougher punishment than a needle. Meanwhile, another alleged attack plan was foiled when two men were arrested as part of a plot to attack a Canadian train. Officials did not say which train, but news sources singled out a route between Toronto and New York. The Canadians tried to link the two men to Iran, but the Iranians denied the connection. Coming on the heels of the Boston Marathon bombing, this only shows that the celebration of the capture of the second Boston suspect was a bit premature. Yes, it was good to get him off the streets, but evidently it hasnt made the streets safer. There are still many people out there who get a thrill out of seeing Americans in pain, and will go to any lengths to see that thrill realized. We must be vigilant against possible attacks. And its time to reiterate that slogan making its way around: If you see something, say something. Someone might have seen a dropped backpack in Boston, and didnt bother to say anything. Who knows, maybe some lives could have been saved. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of influencing people to be and do their best. You would make an excellent teacher. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Internet cafesI read your commentary on the gambling. I agree and disagree. The Internet Cafes are much more then a place to go to gamble. You say youve never been to any of them so of course you dont know. We were going to them a couple times a week, and it is not just the gaming that is going on. You see people there time after time, It is more social then any thing else. Every one is talking to everyone, whether you know them or not. It gets you out of the house, and out from in front of that TV you keep falling asleep in front of. You make friends, you sometimes have a dinner or snack with your soft drinks or coffee, all free, or if you like, for the money your using to play the games with. Most of the people you talk to spend $20 if you lose it, you go home, but youve had a couple of hours of laughing, talking and in general having a good time with your new friends or just a few people PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com youve met today; either way, its fun and you may have won a little money. If not, then you havent lost your life savings, just a few bucks. Either way, you got out of the house, and had some fun, and on certain days youve had something to eat along with you free cold drink or coffee. Id have to say that 85 percent of the people there are senior citizens, and a lot of widows and singles. Now, from what I hear, the cafes they shut down were a bit crooked, and Im all for shutting them down. If youre not running a honest place you need to be shut down. I must say, youre right as to if you shut down this, you need to shut down all gambling Lottery, scratch offs, bingo. Heres what happened (I think). People started going to the cafes, stopped spending so much at lottery and scratch off, less for our beloved state. So what do you do, close them up. I need to say if they do open again, please go there at least twice, maybe try a couple of them, see what you see, a lot of seniors having a good time, talking, laughing, enjoying themselves. The cafes were pumping some life into the old-timers. Linda Opella Oak RunGambling infoI want to commend you on the article you wrote on the Internet Cafes. You hit the nail on the head. What is good for one entity should be good for another. If the establishments were paying taxes as they should be doing (which the state is in dire need of money) they should be allowed to stay open. Many seniors enjoyed meeting friends and relaxing at these facilities. My husband and I enjoyed going once in a while, having a cup of coffee, perhaps a little snack, sometimes a meal, and spending a little time away from every day chores. As for lottery tickets, we stopped buying them, you got more bang for your buck at the Internet Cafes. That is my opinion on the lottery tickets. Kathleen Belculfine Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 BY EMILY HOLUBOWICH, JOEL PACKER AND RACHEL GRAGG Special to the CitizenPresident Obama just submitted his Fiscal Year 2014 budget to Congress. In the ensuing discussion on how the nation should proceed, hell have to bridge a substantial gulf between the Houses spending plan and the one approved by the Senate in order to end the cycle of fiscal crises that has plagued America for the last several years. To break the stalemate, the president must insist on a bipartisan grand bargain that takes a balanced approach to our nations finances and protects funding for programs that provide critical services to Americans. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has said that every dollar of new debt Congress approves must be accompanied by a dollar in spending cuts. That approach just isnt realistic. Congress has already slashed discretionary spending by $1.5 trillion. If the harmful sequester cuts remain in place, federal spending will have been cut by over $2.5 trillion. Those cuts are four times as large as the increases in revenue that Congress has approved. Slashing discretionary spending wont balance the budget. In fact, you could eliminate all nondefense discretionary programsmedical and scientific research; education and job training; infrastructure; public safety and health; and the national parksand the United States would still run a deficit of half a trillion dollars a year. These cuts are already having a disastrous impact on ordinary Americans lives. Take public health. Thanks to spending cuts Congress has already approved, 650,000 fewer people will receive HIV testing, and nearly 50,000 fewer women will undergo cancer screenings. The National Institutes of Health may be forced to eliminate over 2,000 research grants that seek cures for debilitating diseases such as cancer. Local communities could lose $48 million in funds to fight public health emergencies like natural disasters and outbreaks of disease. Congress is also gutting investments in our future. Nearly 31 million children will lose access to critical education programs, including Head Start. One million at-risk students will be turned away from the Career and Technical Education Programeven though it reduces the high school dropout rate. College is being put out of reach for lowand middle-income families due to cuts to college financial aid. Adult education will suffer, too. The National Skills Coalition predicts that almost two million fewer workers and employers will be able to participate in key employment and training programs in 2013. The casualties will be people like Yasmeen, a single mother in northern California who had been a victim of domestic abuse. While living in a womens shelter with her two toddlers, she participated in a workforce-training program operated by the Jewish Vocational Center in San Francisco. Thanks to the training she received, she was able to obtain a job as a clinic coordinator at the University of California-San Franciscoand get off welfare. Apparently, Congress is not interested in empowering people like Yasmeen to secure better lives for their families. In Utah, a food pantry serving 1,000 poor and hungry Salt Lake City residents has closed thanks to cuts in federal funding. That closure couldnt come at a worse time for the community, as need has tripled in the last five years. Lawmakers must find a better way to bring the federal budget under control. Congress has already forced low-income and working-class Americans to swallow trillions of dollars in cuts to programs that make their lives better. Attempting to balance the budget on their backs will only cause more people to go hungry, deprive more kids of an education, and cast more Americans out of their homes and onto the streets. Unfortunately, the House-passed budget doubles down on these harmful cuts. Thats simply the wrong path to foster economic growth, increase our global competiveness and create more jobs. President Obama and Congress must work together to adopt a more balanced budgetary course. With vital programs shuttering on an almost daily basis, theres no time to waste.Emily Holubowich is Executive Director of the Coalition for Health Funding.

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Just a few months back I was so sick I had to go see the doctor. That alone indicates the condition was rather serious. I do not like going to the doctor because you have to sit in the waiting room with sick people. I never know what contagious diseases are lurking in the shadows of that doctors waiting room. My condition progressed to the point where the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage told me to go to the doctor or else. I never want to deal with her or else. I have lived as long as I have lived and have enjoyed the health that I do have because I have not found out her or else. Since I do not have health insurance, every time I go to the doctor it comes out of my own pocket. Recently my pockets have not been very deep. Regardless of how shallow my pockets may be, doctors know how to penetrate to the very depths of my pockets with their special scalpel. The result of my visit to the doctors was that I had double pneumonia and bronchitis. Simply put, I was sick. He gave me a prescription to fill and then said I should spend at least the next two weeks in bed resting. I was in such a state of mind that it sounded like a good idea to me. Of course, I made him write it out as a prescription so I could show it to my wife so she would believe me that Im in bed because Im sick not because Im trying to avoid my chores. The first couple of days I spent in bed hardly conscious of anything around me. I am not sure if I ate during those days are not. I have no recollection of anything conscious during those days. By the beginning of the second week, I was strong enough to get out of bed, put on my bathrobe and get back in bed and rest. It was not long before I could actually put on the bathrobe, go out into the living room, sit down in my easy chair and watch TV. I have never watched as much TV as I did during those several weeks of recuperation. I am not saying there is anything wrong with TV, just that there is not that much right with TV anymore. I did not know how bad TV was until I watched it for about two weeks. During this time I was too sick to read and so settled down to watching TV, that is between naps. I would set a program and leaned back and within two winks of my left eye I was sound asleep. When I say sound asleep, I mean my sleeping was very sound, I did not know what was going on around me. Occasionally I would pierce the world of consciousness and see what was on TV. Then I would fall back into the delightful world of unconsciousness. After a few days of this, I was able to stay in the conscious world a little bit longer and consequently I was watching TV a little bit longer. The thing I found about TV is that TV dominated by chatterboxes. My ears were beginning to have its fill of chatter. I do not believe my ears were created to handle such a steady stream of incoherent verbiage. All day long, my ears were bombarded by noise coming from the mouths of people who had no idea what they were saying. I say that because, if they knew what they were saying and were hearing what I was hearing, I do not think they would be saying it so people could hear. The TV world has been taken over by a hostile terrorist group known as talk shows. Does everybody in the world have a talk show? I have never seen or heard so much talking all of my life. After all, there are only 26 letters in the alphabet, how can people come up with so many words? The airwaves are filled with news talk shows, celebrity talk shows, cooking talk shows, sports talk shows, religious talk shows, talk shows of every variety you could think of and some you No known cure for the Yakety-Yak syndrome Out to Pastor Dr. James Snyder would not even think of. When I say variety, I am referring to the title of the talk show. Once you get beyond the title, everything is the same. The only skill one needs to have for a talk show is, open your mouth and let verbiage flow uncontrollably and the more incoherent the better. Between sneezing and blowing my nose and coughing uncontrollably, I watched some of these shows. Who in the world is watching these shows? Somebody must be. The only reason I was watching them was that I was so sick I could not do anything else. Maybe that is their audience. When I got to the place that I could read without my eyes watering too much, I read what the Bible has to say on the subject. And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you (1 Thessalonians 4:11 KJV). I have come to a somber conclusion; more people talk than listen, which is why the world is in the state it is in. I call it the Yakety-Yak syndrome of which there is no known cure.Rev. James L.

bor 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 352291-2218, email info@JewishMarion.org or visit our website at www.JewishMarion.org.Our Saviour Lutheran Emergency food and personal care assistance is available each Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Marion Oaks, 260 Marion Oaks Lane.

Read the classifieds BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comBeautiful! What fun! Wow!... The audiences comments said it all: The first Recycled Trashy Fashion Show, presented by the OTOW Lions Club, was a huge success. On April 12, the Recycled Trashy Fashion Show was held at the Ocala Hilton Hotel. The event was created to instill an awareness of the importance of alternative waste solutions and to encourage everyone to recycle. Models, representing various businesses and organizations, competed to take the first, second, and third place prizes. Their designs had to made of at least 75 percent recycled materials and cost no more than $40. The panel of judges included Jeff Bailey, General Manager of the Hilton Ocala Hotel, Maureen Fannon, a photographer, Patricia Hall, 35-L District Governor of the Lions Club, and Joan Stearns, Vice President of Institutional Advancement for the College of Central Florida Foundation. These judges determined the winners. The first place winner won a check for $1,000, second place, $500, and third place, $300. Each check was made out to the charity of choice. First Place went to model Stacy Rollins, sponsored by the Marion County Literacy Council. Her outfit was designed by Pam Hitchcock. The bodice was made from Ocala Style Magazine covers; the skirt was made from old phone book pages and discarded black trash bags. Her belt was woven from the strapping tape on printer paper boxes. Her charity of choice was the Marion County Literacy Council. Second Place was secured by model Cassandra Jackson, sponsored by Hospice of Marion, Inc. Her team of designers included Kathy Dismuke, Lynn Gracie, Kathy Swanson, and Clarise Walker. The dress structure and wing outline was made form black recycled pet screening with a used feather boa to soften the neckline and back of the dress. Bold and exciting orange wing color was added by using old orange file folders in various shades. Large bags of Lays baked chips and bags of Sun Chips Harvest, and copper label from an orange Vitamin Water Zero were also included. The butterfly white reflective spots were made from recycled aluminum foil and various types of white buttons. Skirt fullness and shape was created by using black extra-large and/or reused bubble wrap for the underskirt.

Come out on May 22 and hear what youve been missing. Veterans ClubOn Thursday, May 2 at 2 p.m., your Cherrywood Veterans Club will hold its monthly meeting. This month Morrey Dean will be on hand to talk about Fort King and your new officers will be discussing the Memorial Day services and picnic. As always, the Veterans Club meetings are open to all Cherrywood residents. Come out and see what good things are being done for our community; our county and our country. If you are a veteran and havent yet joined, May would be a great month for you to pay your $5 lifetime dues and join us. Liquid refreshments follow the meeting on the patio. Memorial DayOn May 30 at 11 a.m. the Veterans Club of Cherrywood will host a Memorial Day observance. Everyone is welcome to attend this special service where those who gave their lives in the defense of our country will be honored. The program will begin with the presentation of colors and the National Anthem. A guest speaker will deliver a message of inspiration followed by a salute to all the armed forces. The names of our fallen veterans will be read and President Bill Mahar will present a wreath at our monument. Taps will be sounded and then the flag on the main flag pole will be raised to full staff. This is a very solemn service of honor as we remember those who sacrificed their all for our freedoms. Immediately following the service, a good old fashioned American picnic will be held. Hot dogs and hamburgers with all the trimmings will be served along with beans and Cole slaw. The cost for the luncheon is $7 per person with the proceeds going to the Veterans Club for its services to the community. Everyone is asked to bring a dessert to pass and as always, you are invited to bring your favorite beverage. Tickets are available from Geri in the office or at the Veterans Club meeting on May 2. We hope everyone will attend this day of remembrance and share in the fellowship and fun that follows.Spotlight on ExcellenceIn recent days our country has been hit yet again by tragedies that threaten to shake our sense of security and challenge our way of life. The first event was the bombing of the Boston Marathon race which resulted in the death of three individuals and the maiming of scores of others. The second such tragedy was the huge explosion and fire in Texas at a fertilizer plant where many perished with hundreds more injured or homeless. Whether deliberate such as the terrorist attack in Boston or accidental as the catastrophe in West Texas, lives were taken; hundreds of lives were altered for ever, and families were devastated. You might ask what an article on Excellence has to do with such horrors. My answer is this; look at how we responded. In Boston there was anger and a commitment to bring the perpetrators of this heinous act to justice. Law enforcement went all out bringing to bear their resources and training; their courage and their dedication. One MIT officer was killed and another officer grievously wounded but neither the cops nor the citizens let anything slow them down in their relentless pursuit of justice. In Texas, along with innocent employees and residents, many of the victims were volunteer firefighters; police officers and emergency medical personnel. These are the first responders to any horrific event and heroes by any ones standards. Both incidents produced amazing acts of courage and sacrifice by every day Americans both civilian and professional. What is it about the American way of life that produces such men and women? What is it about us that we will run into a burning building or a blazing gun battle in order to save our fellow citizens? When others would cower, our first responders and regular people run in where angels fear to tread. What is it about America that produces citizens with such resolve and purpose; people like Bostonians? In spite of a devastating attack at a public sporting event, they responded by attending a hockey game and baseball game by the thousands. In those arenas they stood proudly and defiantly and with one voice sang the National Anthem. What about the West Texas community and surrounding towns who gathered and are gathering to give aide and comfort to those who lost so much? That is yet another example of service and sacrifice. What makes us Americans so generous with our time and fortunes that we reach out to our neighbors in need?

On board will be veterans of World War II returning home after a day of memory and inspiration at the World War II monument in Washington D.C. Honor Flight was instituted in order to give these veterans of that war a chance to see how much their effort and sacrifices were appreciated. They lived through a time in our history when the very survival of this country was in danger. Had it not been for what they accomplished our world would be a very different and more frightening place. The Veterans Club of Cherrywood is asking that all of our residents make plans to be at the airport to welcome home this last flight of veterans. It is very little ask to honor those who gave so much. Please let us know if you can attend. Your vets club will provide everyone who attends with a small flag to wave as the veterans disembark.

On board will be veterans of World War II returning home after a day of memory and inspiration at the World War II monument in Washington D.C. Honor Flight was instituted in order to give these veterans of that war a chance to see how much their effort and sacrifices were appreciated. They lived through a time in our history when the very survival of this country was in danger. Had it not been for what they accomplished our world would be a very different and more frightening place. The Veterans Club of Cherrywood is asking that all of our residents make plans to be at the airport to welcome home this last flight of veterans. It is very little ask to honor those who gave so much. Please let us know if you can attend. Your vets club will provide everyone who attends with a small flag to wave as the veterans disembark.

On Sunday, April 14, the Marion Landing league bowlers held their annual bowling banquet honoring those top bowlers and teams from the 2012 season. Presently, there are four leagues, each competing for top honors in their own league. The four leagues have a Mens and Womens Bowler of the Month, and these monthly winners compete in a roll off for Bowler of the Year. This years top bowlers are Marilyn Rubacha with 72 pins over average and John Metzger with 97 pins over average. Congratulations to you both. The banquet was enjoyed by all and featured a menu that pleased everyone, said Dick Blanck. Thanks to all that made this possible. Bowling is one of the most popular activities available to residents and their guests in Marion Landing. During the summer, the lanes are available for Open Bowling (check the Open Bowling schedule posted in the Bowling Center for days and times, as well as your Daily Activities schedule in the Communicator). There is no league bowling during the summer months; it will start up again in September.

We hope everyone will attend this day of remembrance and share in the fellowship and fun that follows.Spotlight on ExcellenceIn recent days our country has been hit yet again by tragedies that threaten to shake our sense of security and challenge our way of life. The first event was the bombing of the Boston Marathon race which resulted in the death of three individuals and the maiming of scores of others. The second such tragedy was the huge explosion and fire in Texas at a fertilizer plant where many perished with hundreds more injured or homeless. Whether deliberate such as the terrorist attack in Boston or accidental as the catastrophe in West Texas, lives were taken; hundreds of lives were altered for ever, and families were devastated. You might ask what an article on Excellence has to do with such horrors. My answer is this; look at how we responded. In Boston there was anger and a commitment to bring the perpetrators of this heinous act to justice. Law enforcement went all out bringing to bear their resources and training; their courage and their dedication. One MIT officer was killed and another officer grievously wounded but neither the cops nor the citizens let anything slow them down in their relentless pursuit of justice. In Texas, along with innocent employees and residents, many of the victims were volunteer firefighters; police officers and emergency medical personnel. These are the first responders to any horrific event and heroes by any ones standards. Both incidents produced amazing acts of courage and sacrifice by every day Americans both civilian and professional. What is it about the American way of life that produces such men and women? What is it about us that we will run into a burning building or a blazing gun battle in order to save our fellow citizens? When others would cower, our first responders and regular people run in where angels fear to tread. What is it about America that produces citizens with such resolve and purpose; people like Bostonians? In spite of a devastating attack at a public sporting event, they responded by attending a hockey game and baseball game by the thousands. In those arenas they stood proudly and defiantly and with one voice sang the National Anthem. What about the West Texas community and surrounding towns who gathered and are gathering to give aide and comfort to those who lost so much? That is yet another example of service and sacrifice. What makes us Americans so generous with our time and fortunes that we reach out to our neighbors in need?

bor 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 352291-2218, email info@JewishMarion.org or visit our website at www.JewishMarion.org.Our Saviour Lutheran Emergency food and personal care assistance is available each Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Marion Oaks, 260 Marion Oaks Lane.

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Just a few months back I was so sick I had to go see the doctor. That alone indicates the condition was rather serious. I do not like going to the doctor because you have to sit in the waiting room with sick people. I never know what contagious diseases are lurking in the shadows of that doctors waiting room. My condition progressed to the point where the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage told me to go to the doctor or else. I never want to deal with her or else. I have lived as long as I have lived and have enjoyed the health that I do have because I have not found out her or else. Since I do not have health insurance, every time I go to the doctor it comes out of my own pocket. Recently my pockets have not been very deep. Regardless of how shallow my pockets may be, doctors know how to penetrate to the very depths of my pockets with their special scalpel. The result of my visit to the doctors was that I had double pneumonia and bronchitis. Simply put, I was sick. He gave me a prescription to fill and then said I should spend at least the next two weeks in bed resting. I was in such a state of mind that it sounded like a good idea to me. Of course, I made him write it out as a prescription so I could show it to my wife so she would believe me that Im in bed because Im sick not because Im trying to avoid my chores. The first couple of days I spent in bed hardly conscious of anything around me. I am not sure if I ate during those days are not. I have no recollection of anything conscious during those days. By the beginning of the second week, I was strong enough to get out of bed, put on my bathrobe and get back in bed and rest. It was not long before I could actually put on the bathrobe, go out into the living room, sit down in my easy chair and watch TV. I have never watched as much TV as I did during those several weeks of recuperation. I am not saying there is anything wrong with TV, just that there is not that much right with TV anymore. I did not know how bad TV was until I watched it for about two weeks. During this time I was too sick to read and so settled down to watching TV, that is between naps. I would set a program and leaned back and within two winks of my left eye I was sound asleep. When I say sound asleep, I mean my sleeping was very sound, I did not know what was going on around me. Occasionally I would pierce the world of consciousness and see what was on TV. Then I would fall back into the delightful world of unconsciousness. After a few days of this, I was able to stay in the conscious world a little bit longer and consequently I was watching TV a little bit longer. The thing I found about TV is that TV dominated by chatterboxes. My ears were beginning to have its fill of chatter. I do not believe my ears were created to handle such a steady stream of incoherent verbiage. All day long, my ears were bombarded by noise coming from the mouths of people who had no idea what they were saying. I say that because, if they knew what they were saying and were hearing what I was hearing, I do not think they would be saying it so people could hear. The TV world has been taken over by a hostile terrorist group known as talk shows. Does everybody in the world have a talk show? I have never seen or heard so much talking all of my life. After all, there are only 26 letters in the alphabet, how can people come up with so many words? The airwaves are filled with news talk shows, celebrity talk shows, cooking talk shows, sports talk shows, religious talk shows, talk shows of every variety you could think of and some you No known cure for the Yakety-Yak syndrome Out to Pastor Dr. James Snyder would not even think of. When I say variety, I am referring to the title of the talk show. Once you get beyond the title, everything is the same. The only skill one needs to have for a talk show is, open your mouth and let verbiage flow uncontrollably and the more incoherent the better. Between sneezing and blowing my nose and coughing uncontrollably, I watched some of these shows. Who in the world is watching these shows? Somebody must be. The only reason I was watching them was that I was so sick I could not do anything else. Maybe that is their audience. When I got to the place that I could read without my eyes watering too much, I read what the Bible has to say on the subject. And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you (1 Thessalonians 4:11 KJV). I have come to a somber conclusion; more people talk than listen, which is why the world is in the state it is in. I call it the Yakety-Yak syndrome of which there is no known cure.Rev. James L.

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com youve met today; either way, its fun and you may have won a little money. If not, then you havent lost your life savings, just a few bucks. Either way, you got out of the house, and had some fun, and on certain days youve had something to eat along with you free cold drink or coffee. Id have to say that 85 percent of the people there are senior citizens, and a lot of widows and singles. Now, from what I hear, the cafes they shut down were a bit crooked, and Im all for shutting them down. If youre not running a honest place you need to be shut down. I must say, youre right as to if you shut down this, you need to shut down all gambling Lottery, scratch offs, bingo. Heres what happened (I think). People started going to the cafes, stopped spending so much at lottery and scratch off, less for our beloved state. So what do you do, close them up. I need to say if they do open again, please go there at least twice, maybe try a couple of them, see what you see, a lot of seniors having a good time, talking, laughing, enjoying themselves. The cafes were pumping some life into the old-timers. Linda Opella Oak RunGambling infoI want to commend you on the article you wrote on the Internet Cafes. You hit the nail on the head. What is good for one entity should be good for another. If the establishments were paying taxes as they should be doing (which the state is in dire need of money) they should be allowed to stay open. Many seniors enjoyed meeting friends and relaxing at these facilities. My husband and I enjoyed going once in a while, having a cup of coffee, perhaps a little snack, sometimes a meal, and spending a little time away from every day chores. As for lottery tickets, we stopped buying them, you got more bang for your buck at the Internet Cafes. That is my opinion on the lottery tickets. Kathleen Belculfine Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 BY EMILY HOLUBOWICH, JOEL PACKER AND RACHEL GRAGG Special to the CitizenPresident Obama just submitted his Fiscal Year 2014 budget to Congress. In the ensuing discussion on how the nation should proceed, hell have to bridge a substantial gulf between the Houses spending plan and the one approved by the Senate in order to end the cycle of fiscal crises that has plagued America for the last several years. To break the stalemate, the president must insist on a bipartisan grand bargain that takes a balanced approach to our nations finances and protects funding for programs that provide critical services to Americans. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has said that every dollar of new debt Congress approves must be accompanied by a dollar in spending cuts. That approach just isnt realistic. Congress has already slashed discretionary spending by $1.5 trillion. If the harmful sequester cuts remain in place, federal spending will have been cut by over $2.5 trillion. Those cuts are four times as large as the increases in revenue that Congress has approved. Slashing discretionary spending wont balance the budget. In fact, you could eliminate all nondefense discretionary programsmedical and scientific research; education and job training; infrastructure; public safety and health; and the national parksand the United States would still run a deficit of half a trillion dollars a year. These cuts are already having a disastrous impact on ordinary Americans lives. Take public health. Thanks to spending cuts Congress has already approved, 650,000 fewer people will receive HIV testing, and nearly 50,000 fewer women will undergo cancer screenings. The National Institutes of Health may be forced to eliminate over 2,000 research grants that seek cures for debilitating diseases such as cancer. Local communities could lose $48 million in funds to fight public health emergencies like natural disasters and outbreaks of disease. Congress is also gutting investments in our future. Nearly 31 million children will lose access to critical education programs, including Head Start. One million at-risk students will be turned away from the Career and Technical Education Programeven though it reduces the high school dropout rate. College is being put out of reach for lowand middle-income families due to cuts to college financial aid. Adult education will suffer, too. The National Skills Coalition predicts that almost two million fewer workers and employers will be able to participate in key employment and training programs in 2013. The casualties will be people like Yasmeen, a single mother in northern California who had been a victim of domestic abuse. While living in a womens shelter with her two toddlers, she participated in a workforce-training program operated by the Jewish Vocational Center in San Francisco. Thanks to the training she received, she was able to obtain a job as a clinic coordinator at the University of California-San Franciscoand get off welfare. Apparently, Congress is not interested in empowering people like Yasmeen to secure better lives for their families. In Utah, a food pantry serving 1,000 poor and hungry Salt Lake City residents has closed thanks to cuts in federal funding. That closure couldnt come at a worse time for the community, as need has tripled in the last five years. Lawmakers must find a better way to bring the federal budget under control. Congress has already forced low-income and working-class Americans to swallow trillions of dollars in cuts to programs that make their lives better. Attempting to balance the budget on their backs will only cause more people to go hungry, deprive more kids of an education, and cast more Americans out of their homes and onto the streets. Unfortunately, the House-passed budget doubles down on these harmful cuts. Thats simply the wrong path to foster economic growth, increase our global competiveness and create more jobs. President Obama and Congress must work together to adopt a more balanced budgetary course. With vital programs shuttering on an almost daily basis, theres no time to waste.Emily Holubowich is Executive Director of the Coalition for Health Funding.

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, April 26, 2013 Are the leaders of North Korea crazy? Like a fox! Since the day the North invaded South Korea (June 25, 1950) they have been cunning about their motives in every dispute and negotiation. That so-called forgotten war, (1950-53) was triggered by the Norths frustration at being blocked from unifying Korea under their communist government at the end of World War II. Interestingly, North Korea asked permission to start the war from Soviet Dictator Joseph Stalin, their primary benefactor and adviser at the time. The war began with an unprovoked attack, which the North blamed on South Korea and the U.S. Ever since, North Korean governments have been masters of the blame game. The war was misnamed a police action by the United Nations. We suffered more than 54,000 dead, over a hundred thousand wounded, seven thousand prisoners of war, and more than eight thousand missing in action. Fifteen allied nations also suffered losses. Those of us assigned to make some sense out of broadcasts on Radio Pyongyang, heard accusations about other nations, and claims that North Korea was winning the war. Todays broadcasts mix propaganda with praise for three generations of beloved leaders Kim Il Sung, Kin Jong Il, and Kim Jong Un, the new supreme leader. For decades Korea seemed xenophobic (zen-o-fobic) meaning not comfortable with strangers or foreigners and with good reason. Since the 19th century, France, Manchuria, Japan, Germany, and the U.S tried more than once to establish commercial relations with Korea not always in a friendly fashion. A fourteenth century description of Korea was The Hermit Kingdom. To refer to North Korea today as a hermit country or xenophobic isnt accurate. A humiliating reason for Koreans dislike of foreigners was being overrun by Japan during the Russo Japanese war of 1904-05. Japan annexed Korea in 1910, and until the end of World War II made every effort to obliterate the Korean language and culture. Negotiations to end the Korean War began July 10, 1951, 11 months after the war started. It took weeks to agree on an agenda, during which the North Koreans argued over every detail the shape of the table, placement of chairs, and who would sit where. North Korean negotiators were persistent in their efforts to exhaust the United Nations representatives. When the first meeting place exploded one night, the North Koreans insisted the U.N. had bombed the building, but they would allow no daylight investigation. Relocating the negotiations to a new site at Panmunjom triggered another dispute. Current rattling of nuclear weapons and long-range rockets are true to form for North Korea. Over the past sixty years they have been successful in playing China against Russia, and getting support from both neighbors. The North Koreans know how to play ball with the big boys. They have not revealed the motives and goals behind their present threatening behavior. A catastrophe by mistake is always possible in these situations, but a successful armed robbery is the more likely result. Many of you, Im sure, played cowboys and Indians when you were kids. Its now considered politically incorrect to call it that because, first, the cowboys usually won, and second, the Indians were called that because Christopher Columbus didnt know where he was when he landed. Now theyre called, probably rightly so, Native Americans. About 1 million out of 2.5 million Native Americans live in areas called reservations. These were not created out of the goodness of the heart of the colonists and their descendants; rather, they wanted to contain the Indians and put them where they felt they belonged, even though they were here first. Peace treaties were signed and ratified, and sovereignty was given to the reservations. That meant that our laws didnt apply there; each reservation could set up its own laws. No one in those days could envision that in the future this would cause major problems in the rest of the country, a lot of it associated with gambling. States that have anti-gambling laws have no say in the building of casinos on the reservations. Non-Native Americans flock by the thousands to the reservations to play the games, including some here in Florida. Last week we pointed out some inconsistency in gambling regulation. This is just another one. Now, I dont want to start a range war or anything like that, but Im thinking that it might be time to revisit these treaties that created these reservations. Basically, are they really needed? Native Americans have been absorbed into the population. They have opportunities that were not even remotely available 200 years ago. Many of them go to colleges and universities, earn advance degrees and work in the business world of the United States. They do not need the protection of the reservation they are educated, talented and self-sufficient. But because of that, shouldnt they also be subject to laws of the country and state in which they live? That gets us back to gambling. Sometime back, some smart individual figured out that the anti-gambling laws of a state wouldnt apply on a reservation. So the casinos started sprouting up all over, including in Florida. If just the Native Americans gambled in their casinos, that would be fine. But as I said before, non-Native Americans provide the bulk of the customers. I wonder how many of those who visit the casinos declare their winnings on their income tax. Just from what Ive been reading recently, it seems that gambling establishments, especially here in Florida, prey on the senior citizens. Just watch who goes in and out of the Internet cafes, if they are allowed to reopen. Our federal government needs to take a long look at these establishments on the reservations, see who bankrolls them, etc. A couple hundred years ago Americans needed protection from the Native Americans, who were fighting to keep their land from being poached by invaders from Europe. Now, Americans need protection from the Native American-run casinos, so the people dont get their savings poached by those who run the gambling establishments. Just like the game of cowboys and Indians, this is a battle for survival, especially for senior citizens.

Lets see if we can get this straight. Weve got a seriously injured second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing that were treating and helping keep alive so we can give him the death penalty. Sure, that makes sense. Authorities wanted to talk to him to learn about any help he and his brother might have had in building the bombs that killed three at the Marathon. According to reports, he told them, or rather he wrote down, that they had no help and learned how to build the bomb on the Internet. He also said the motive was not political, it was religious. OK, theyve talked. Now let nature take its course. We realize that it is the duty of doctors and nurses to save lives, regardless of who the patient might be. And evidently, the doctors and nurses at that hospital did their job well. But now that the authorities have the basic information they need, just put him in a jail cell and see what happens. This case isnt over, either. Theres a matter of jurisdiction. The charges against the alleged bomber are federal and could carry the death penalty. However, his lawyers might argue that it was a case of murder, which is a state charge. Heres the rub: Massachusetts as a state doesnt have the death penalty. If the case were ordered into state court, life in prison is the worst he could get. Of course, at age 19, that could be a long time, maybe a tougher punishment than a needle. Meanwhile, another alleged attack plan was foiled when two men were arrested as part of a plot to attack a Canadian train. Officials did not say which train, but news sources singled out a route between Toronto and New York. The Canadians tried to link the two men to Iran, but the Iranians denied the connection. Coming on the heels of the Boston Marathon bombing, this only shows that the celebration of the capture of the second Boston suspect was a bit premature. Yes, it was good to get him off the streets, but evidently it hasnt made the streets safer. There are still many people out there who get a thrill out of seeing Americans in pain, and will go to any lengths to see that thrill realized. We must be vigilant against possible attacks. And its time to reiterate that slogan making its way around: If you see something, say something. Someone might have seen a dropped backpack in Boston, and didnt bother to say anything. Who knows, maybe some lives could have been saved. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Keep him alive, then execute him Exemptions for casinos? Why? You must never let the beggars wear you down READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Flynn Columnist Jim Clark Editor ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Dont waste your time and energy fretting over remarks you consider unnecessary or unkind. Best advice: Ignore them, and just keep doing your usual good job. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Getting that new perspective on a workplace situation could lead to a solution everyone will accept. Meanwhile, keep up with your creative pursuits. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Those changes you planned to implement in early summer might need to be reassessed. But dont make any moves until youve discussed this with someone you trust. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your aspects favor harmony, making this a good time to work out problems in relationships whether personal or professional, big or small. An old friend comes back. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) While youre still riding that high-powered beam, you might begin to lose focus by weeks end. Could be youll need to do a little cat-napping to restore your spent energies. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) An unexpected development creates a lot of excitement. Where it takes you is your decision. Check out the possibilities, then decide if you want to go with it or not. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although your supporters help you squash an unfair claim against you, dont let this go unchallenged. You need to learn more about the motives of those behind it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) There are still some tasks to clear up by midweek. Then you can welcome the new month on a high note. A friend brings surprising but very welcome news. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might want to change your plans before theyre set in cement. Consider advice from colleagues. But remember that, ultimately, its your choice. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A difficult situation is working itself out. Lingering problems should be resolved by weeks end, allowing the Goat to enjoy a calmer, less stressful period. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Be careful not to move so quickly that you miss possible warning signs that could upset your plans. Slow down. Your supporters will continue to stand by you. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your generosity in sharing your time and wisdom with others leads to an intriguing development that could have you considering some interesting choices. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of influencing people to be and do their best. You would make an excellent teacher. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Internet cafesI read your commentary on the gambling. I agree and disagree. The Internet Cafes are much more then a place to go to gamble. You say youve never been to any of them so of course you dont know. We were going to them a couple times a week, and it is not just the gaming that is going on. You see people there time after time, It is more social then any thing else. Every one is talking to everyone, whether you know them or not. It gets you out of the house, and out from in front of that TV you keep falling asleep in front of. You make friends, you sometimes have a dinner or snack with your soft drinks or coffee, all free, or if you like, for the money your using to play the games with. Most of the people you talk to spend $20 if you lose it, you go home, but youve had a couple of hours of laughing, talking and in general having a good time with your new friends or just a few people PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9

Household To Do List No Job Too Small One Call Does It All 6~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Major League Baseball began the end of March with a first-ever game for the Houston Astros as an American League Club. Then 12 games were played on Monday, April 1, when traditional Opening Day returned to a Monday for the first time since 2010. Today marks the 1995 opening of Coors Field in Denver where the Rockies beat the Mets 11-9 in 14 innings. Here in Pun Alley we wind up and throw some stories at you to see if theyre hits, errors or strikeouts.PitchThe conceited new rookie was pitching his first game. He walked the first five men he faced, and the manager took him out of the game. The rookie slammed his glove on the ground as he walked off and yelled, Damn it, the jerk takes me out when I have a no-hitter going.Country wiseA baseball player was sitting on the bench next to the manager. Suddenly, the manager started spouting out names of countries, Germany, Italy, Spain, Britain. The player looked at him and said, What are you trying to say Skipper? to which the manager replied, Europe!Foul ballsThe difference between baseball and politics is that in baseball youre out if youre caught stealing. One young baseball fan said to his friend, When I grow up, Im gonna play ball for the Orioles. The other boy thumped his chest. He said, When I grow up, theyre gonna have to pay me in money, not birds. My dog enjoys playing baseball. She chases fowls, catches flies, and runs for home. First Baseball Player: You didnt get on so well with that millionaires daughter, eh? Second Baseball Player: Terrible, no hits, no runs, no heiress. The pastries that we had prepared to celebrate our baseball victory could not be eaten, due to lack of a good batter. I attended a baseball game in Bangkok. I left after the fourteenth inning. It was still a Thai ballgame. A philandering baseball player cheated on his wife so often that he was finally thrown out at home. Two old ladies went to a baseball game with a bottle of Four Roses. By the bottom of the fifth the bags were loaded. A football and a baseball walked into a bar. The football said, Youre round! More and more stadiums are bringing back natural grass; all that tobacco juice is killing the Astroturf. My wife claims Im a baseball fanatic. She says all I ever read about is baseball. All I ever talk about is baseball. All I ever think about is baseball. I told her shes way off base.Empire umpireA baseball umpire had a reputation for mean and surly behavior. One Sunday morning the umpire asked his son to jump on his lap and listen as the father read the son the funnies. But the boy refused because the son never sits on the brutish umpire.Another pitcherThe pitcher wasnt having a good day. Finally, the manager walked out to the mound and said, Im sending you to the showers. You cant, said the pitcher. Im hitting my stride. Besides, look whos on deck. I struck him out twice and walked him once. I know, said the manager, but its still the same inning.Close callA woman phoned the UPS cargo center and said, I need a baseball quote. The UPS clerk immediately answered with Yogi Berras famous It aint over til its over! There was a brief moment of silence before the woman asked, What was that? You asked me for a baseball quote, the clerk responded, and that was the first thing that came into my head. Oh, she replied, My husband told me to call and get a baseball quote. The clerk asked if she wanted to ship something, and she said she did. Then he said, Do you mean you want a ballpark figure?Youre outThe umpire crew for a baseball game consists of four men. While games have been played with only three, some crews take an extra man along in the event of an injury or sickness. To keep from being bored, this extra man wanders around the stadium to enjoy the game from different vantage points. One night, the extra umpire tripped and fell from the second tier of a grandstand. An article in the paper reported on his demise, The Decline & Fall of the Roaming Umpire.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Some hits and errors from the baseball world Pun Alley Dick Frank Local woman wins truck in national contestRocky Brands has announced the grand prize winners of its Were With You Sweepstakes, which began in early 2012 and offered prizes for both Rocky consumers and sales associates at Rocky retail outlets nationwide. The Grand Prize winners were Gaye Marie Folsom from Ocala and Rex Read from Clearfield, Pa. Both are now the proud owners of brand new 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 Tradesman trucks. Folsom won the consumer contest, and Read, a manager at Bobs Boots, won the dealer prize. Congratulations to both Gaye and Rex, and we hope the Dodge Ram 1500 Tradesman trucks serve them as well, said Sam Bowman, marketing manager for Rockys outdoor and work divisions. More than 55,000 customers entered the contest at Rocky retail outlets nationwide or online at www.RockyBoots.com. Sales associates at Rocky retailers were entered each time they sold a pair of Rocky Boots, with more than 21,000 total entries being registered during the contest. The consumer contest also awarded a first and second prize valued at $5,000 and $450, respectively. Rocky Brands is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of premium quality footwear and apparel. Air Force AwardFrom the left are Michael Hare (AFA Chapter 136 Vice President of Aerospace Education; Cadet Jennie Seibert, member of the Arnold Air Society, awarded the AFA Award; Lt. Col Tim Zacharias (PAS at Detachment 150) and Mike Emig, local respresentative. Dan Hilliard, Director of Withlacoochee Area Residents, Inc. will speak at the Water Well Justice meeting How Well Is Your Well? on Tuesday, April 30, 7 p.m. at Fairfield Presbyterian Church, 15096 N.W. County Road 225, Fairfield. All citizens concerned about their residential water wells and sinkholes are invited to attend. Admission is free. Residential water wells (officially called domestic self-supplied wells) are going dry all over Marion County and Florida and can cost thousands of dollars to replace or repair. Hilliard will address the issues, causes and what you can do to protect your own domestic self-supply well. Domestic self-supplied wells are no match for big wells reaching deeper into the aquifer. Some utility wells are over 1,000 foot deep while some home wells are less than 100 foot deep. Operators of wells in the lower aquifer embrace the idea that they will not harm wells in the upper aquifer. This is not so. In Marion County the upper and lower aquifers are connected. Any water drawn from the lower aquifer eventually affects wells in the upper aquifer. Domestic self-supplied well owners are legal users of Floridas water accounting for just 4 percent of water withdrawals but can expect to bear the brunt of water usage cutback mandates and ultimately be required to put water meters on their wells. Withlacoochee Area Residents, Inc. was organized in 1984 in response to threats to the quality of life of residents along the lower Withlacoochee. Water Well Justice was organized in Marion County 2013 by a group of residents concerned about their wells and the cost of remediation.

Anti-abuse walk ends in TallahasseeChildhood sexual abuse survivor, educator and nationally-recognized advocate Lauren Book this week completed a 1,500-mile walk across Florida and held a rally on the steps of the historic Old Capitol with the Governor, Cabinet members, legislative leaders and supporters to advocate for more funding for rape crisis centers, legislation to make it easier to prosecute sex offenders and expanded prevention education. Book and Floridas state attorneys are advocating for legislation that would make out-of-court statements from child victims of sexual abuse a stronger tool in trials against their alleged abusers. Books non-profit organization, Laurens Kids, also is seeking to expand Floridas existing abuse prevention curriculum through fifth grade. Throughout the state, Book has spread a message of hope and healing to victims of sexual abuse and has worked to educate communities about their role in abuse prevention. One of her stops was in Ocala. I am working to create a culture of safety. To truly end the epidemic of childhood sexual abuse, we need to stop hiding from it and start talking about it, Book said. We need to empower our children to make choices that keep them safer, and we need to educate adults to recognize the signs of sexual abuse and the traps predators set. 760031 Premier Realty, Inc.

death in June 2000, after an extended illness. The Rev. Gary O. Marshall was installed as Countrysides second pastor in May 2001 and is now in his 13th year. As the community grew, so did the congregation and its activities, Kay OConnor became our first fulltime Business Administrator in November 2001 and we took on Rev. Michael Weller, his wife Rachel and children as our missionary family in Ethiopia. In 2002, the church began to work with CDH Partners, Inc. of Atlanta on the design and expansion of Countrysides facilities. In 2003, Ausley Construction was engaged as our contractor. After successful fundraising, a groundbreaking ceremony was held in July. The cornerstone was celebrated in a service of dedication and thanksgiving on Reformation Sunday in 2004. The new sanctuary, equipped with a state-ofthe-art sound system, offices, classrooms and Founders Hall was dedicated in October 2005. The church continues to grow in faith. Today we support missionaries in the Horn of Africa, Jamaica as well as Interfaith Emergency Services and other local agencies in Ocala. We offer Christian education, bible studies, pastoral care and many fellowship groups. We have a Memorial Garden, Chancel and Hand Bell Choirs, Sunday Afternoon Concerts and an Annual Yard Sale. Our Choir Director, Jo Ann Shaw has been with us for many years. Looking back on our 25th Anniversary, we have much to be proud of what we have achieved with Gods help. What seemed impossible once is reality today. We face the future knowing we are a warm and friendly church well placed to deal with the population growth forecast for Southwest SR 200.

Friday, April 26, 2013 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, April 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com UNTIL I SAY GOOD-BYE By Susan Spencer-Wendel The surprise of Until I Say Good-bye is that this book about Susan SpencerWendels last year of good health, after being diagnosed with Lou Gehrigs disease (ALS), is a memoir devoid of anger, bitterness and self-pity. Rather, its a celebration of the life left to her, filled with optimism and joie de vivre. In coming to terms with the inevitability of her condition, she wanted to make her last good year memorable for her family and friends. I determined to spend my time wisely. To take the trips Id longed to take and experience each pleasure Id longed for as well. To organize what I was leaving behind. To plant a garden of memories for my family to bloom in their futures. I was a writer. ALS could curl my fingers and weaken my body, but it could not take my talent. To that end, this 44-year-old wife, mother of three, and accomplished journalist plans seven trips with the people closest to hertrips including the Yukon, Hungary, the Bahamas, and Cyprus. Although the trips drain her of energy and accelerate the loss of muscle control she forges ahead. Her three children choose their own tripsswimming with the dolphins for her two sons, a shopping trip to Kleins for a bridal gown for her daughterthe only time Susan will see her as a bride. (Marinas first wish, sadly, could not be grantedmeeting the Kardashians.) As she squeezes the best that can be made of the long goodbye, she records the treasured moments, ulMarions Most Wanted Darrin Lamont Bryant, 43, felony violation of probation warrant, cocaine sale, manufacture, delivery and possession, and DUI.

Looking ahead to her immobility, she has a rain-proof chickee installed in the backyard with comfortable chairs for visitors. And not wanting to live without make-up when she can no longer apply it herself, she opts for permanent eyebrows, eyeliner, and lips, even though the process is somewhat painful. Susans tenacity and perseverance is inspiring enough. But the real invitation to her readers is to live in the moment and cherish whatever comes our way.

Presidents and Their First Ladies, dramatically speaking is the creation of the veteran acting and writing team of the Wills. The couple are now in their 16th year of bringing to life the stories of Presidential couples. The Wills are not impersonators, their costumes, dialects, and demeanors recreate these historical characters. Mr. and Mrs. Wills have performed in over 30 performances at seven of the nations Presidential Museums. William researches and creates scripts while Sue edits his work and creates the costumes. Sometimes forgotten are the young people who met, fell in love and the years of triumphs and tragedies that shaped their personalities and their relationship which led up to the 1932 election and their 12 years as First Couple. The focus will be on their private side and how that affected their public lives.

Central Florida Mr. Graves sat on a panel concerning restorative justice in which participants concluded that the public wants compliance but is not willing to pay for it. Ms. Holt continued that In Florida last year, the 20 public defender offices handled more than three-quarters of a million court-appointed cases and appeals. In the past 50 years, the public defender offices have become the primary providers of criminal defense services, and the 20 public defenders offices are the states firstline of criminal defense. This 50-year anniversary of a Florida case that became a cornerstone of our nations justice system is an excellent time to reflect on how far weve come and to renew our commitment to moving our goals forward. Please join the Friday Forums community conversation about public defenders who serve as a critical check and balance against the vast power of the state when brought to bear upon an individual charged with committing a crime.

At 10:33 p.m. Saturday, Marion County Fire Rescue responded to Hampton Manor Assisted Living Facility, 10590 S.E. 62nd Ave. Road, Belleview, due to damage and danger created by a large tree, which fell on the facilitys roof. No one was injured. However, due to the structural damage, the compromised electrical system and the lack of water to certain areas of the building, all 52 residents were evacuated. MCFR crew members assisted the Hampton Manor staff in transporting residents from their rooms to Hampton Manor-operated vans and shuttles, which took 47 of the residents to nearby Hampton Manor facilities; the other five residents were picked-up by family members. The tree landed atop the facilitys back dining room and broke the fire suppression system, which caused its pipes to flood a section of the center with approximately three inches of water. Twelve MCFR units and approximately 25 crew members assisted with the evacuation; Officials estimate it will take at least a week for the facility to make the necessary repairs. Arrested Samuel Lynn Irvin, 61, of Summerfield, is in the Marion County Jail. Irvin is charged with 29 counts of possession of child pornography and transmission of pornography by electronic device. Irvin was arrested and booked into the Marion County Jail at 1:50 a.m., Sunday, April 21. Marion County Sheriffs Office detectives obtained a search warrant to examine a computer and an external hard drive owned by Irvin. A forensic exam was conducted on the computer equipment. The results reportedly showed numerous images defined as child pornography per Florida Statute. Irvins bond amount is $290,000. Mark Leron Franklin, 36, has been arrested and charged with two counts of sexual battery. Detectives discovered Franklin violated the victim in 1990-91.

On April 18, 2013, Franklin was interviewed by both Ocala Police Department and the Marion County Sheriffs Office.

CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & BusinessesFRIDAY, April 26, 2013 VOLUME 17 NUMBER 48 www.smcitizen.com OF NOTE Public defender to speak at Friday ForumMichael Graves, Public Defender for the five county 5th judicial district which is headquartered in Marion County, will speak when the Friday Forum luncheon series next convenes at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, May 10, at Buffet City located at the corner of State Road 200 and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Ocala. Cost is $10 per person payable to the restaurant. In this age of the new Jim Crow, people from all walks of life who share an interest in our community and the welfare of all our people are invited to attend what we believe will be an expansion of our knowledge and understanding about our responsibilities to indigent defendants in criminal cases in compliance with the Sixth Amendment and the Gideon v. Wainwright decision by the Supreme Court 50 years ago. Justice Hugo Black wrote in the decision that reason and reflection require us to recognize that in our adversary system of criminal justice, any person hauled into court who is too poor to hire a lawyer, cannot be assured a fair trial unless counsel is provided for him. This seems to us to be an obvious truth. Julianne Holt, president of the Florida Public Defenders Association, wrote in March 2013 that Gideon v. Wainwright is the foundation of the Florida Public Defender system. She said The Florida Legislature provides the funds necessary for the elected public defenders to employ lawyers, experts, psychologists, investigators and the other services necessary to defend indigent clients.

The Relay started Friday and lasted through the night to Saturday morning.PHOTOS BY JIM CLARK Countryside Presbyterian Church will celebrate its 25th anniversary at a special service on Sunday, May 5, at 10:30 a.m. led by Rev. Gary O. Marshall. The church is at 7768 S.W. State Road 200 in Ocala. Guests include the Rev. Steven Benz, Interim Executive Presbyter and the Rev. Alisun Donovan, Associate Executive Presbyter from the Presbytery of St. Augustine and four of our charter members Polly Arit, Willa French, Liz Milleson and Cleone Redman. The Chancel and Hand Bell Choirs as well as guest musicians will perform. A catered lunch will be served to our members at the Oak Run Country club donated by an anonymous benefactor. In 1987 representatives from First Presbyterian Church and Fort King Presbyterian Church decided that there was a need for a Presbyterian Church on Southwest SR 200. The chartering service of Countryside Presbyterian Church and the installation of Rev. Robert K. McGirt took place on May 15, 1988 at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Ocala. The dedicated few who began meeting in Roberts Funeral Home (formerly Bruce West) on SR 200 took the first steps resulting in the founding of our church. Their initial sacrifice and continued support of the church made it possible for the church to prosper and grow. Pastor Robert K. McGirt led the new congregation in worship for about three years. Under his leadership, the first building consisting of a multipurpose room, used as a sanctuary, two offices, a classroom, kitchen and nursery was completed in October 1990. The mortgage on this building was paid ahead of schedule in 2001. Rev. McGirt served until his Countryside marks 25th anniversary PLEASESEECHURCH, PAGE3 PLEASESEEFORUM, PAGE2 *See sales person for details. Pictures for illustration purposes only.
