Ocala Health announces the appointment of Eric Keyser, MD, FACC to Medical Director of Cardiovascular Surgery at Ocala Regional Medical Center. In this role, Dr. Keyser will lead all aspects of cardiovascular surgical services, including staff education and training, patient care practices, quality initiatives, and equipment procurement. Dr. Keyser specializes in the latest minimally invasive cardiovascular surgical techniques, performing most of his heart bypass surgeries off-pump, which often affords the patient a faster recovery and shorter hospital stay as well as reduced risk of stroke or memory problems. Dr. Keyser most recently served as clinical director and attending surgeon in the cardiothoracic surgery section of Essentia Health Heart & Vascular Center in Fargo, North Dakota. Dr. Keysers education is from McGill University, Montreal, Canada and includes a Bachelor of Science in Physics, a Medical Doctorate, a Master of Surgery, and a Master of Science in Experimental Surgery. His postgraduate medical training include research fellowships in Critical Care Medicine, Surgical Education and Minimally Invasive Surgery at McGill, a completed residency in General Surgery at the McGill University Health Center, a completed residency in Cardiothoracic Surgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine Long Island Jewish Medical Center/Schneider Childrens Hospital in New York, and a clinical fellowship in advanced Adult Cardiac Surgery at the Harvard Medical School Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. He is a certified diplomat of the American Board of Surgery, the American Board of Thoracic Surgery, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in General Surgery, and of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in Cardiac Surgery. He is an active member and fellow of several medical and surgical societies. Dr. Keyser brings a level of cardiovascular surgical expertise which is comparable to that of leading heart institutes and not widely available in our community, said Randy McVay, chief executive officer, Ocala Health. Dr. Keyser is joining an integrated team of patient-centered specialists who are known for their clinical advancements and quality outcomes. We welcome Dr. Keyser and look forward the contributions he will make to the cardiovascular care provided by Ocala Health.

His clinical focus of expertise is in heart valve repair and minimally invasive adult cardiothoracic surgery. His office is at 1805 S.E. 16th Ave., Building 1200, Suite 1201, Ocala.

Currently insurance is going up every year in America. It doesnt matter how healthy you are or how hard you try the health care insurance companies have been sticking it to us. There must be some reward of at least not raising the rates of Americans who practice healthy lifestyles. Poorer Americans struggle with unhealthy lifestyles. They eat more pizza and fast food because its cheaper. Its also unhealthy. Our country would save billions if we could have a healthier America. We must develop a healthy American tax relief act. Eliminate the payroll employee taxes for each American whose income falls into the poverty level. This tax would be eliminated based on a report from the county health clinic. The report would include blood work results like sugar level, cholesterol, HIV and other vital health information. The body mass index would be calculated and should be at least 27 percent or a number to be determined healthy for men and women. This report signed by a local health official is affixed to the income tax report filed each year to the IRS for the tax savings for the entire next year. This gives the poorer class in our country a tremendous financial incentive to get off the computer, become more active and lay off the soda and chips. Financially it will save our country billions. The effect of younger, poorer and even older Americans trying to become healthier will save our country billions in medical costs. Finally, its optional. No one has to try to be healthy if they do not want to. This is America. For those who will make an effort there will be a significant reward.

OBITUARY Once a year I go to my cardiologist; todays the day. His office is on the second floor. If I make it up the stairs I figure Im good for another year. While recuperating in the waiting room I always hear some heart-rending stories. The heart of the matterA mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop. The mechanic shouted, Hey Doc, want to take a look at this? The cardiologist walked to where the mechanic was working. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I make $35,000 a year and you get the really big bucks when you and I are doing basically the same work? The cardiologist smiled, leaned over and whispered to the mechanic, Try doing it with the engine running.Cant buckThe doctor told a man needing a heart transplant that the only heart available was from a sheep. The man finally agreed and the doctor transplanted the sheep heart into the man. The man came in for a checkup several weeks after the operation. The doctor asked him How are you feeling? The man replied, Not baaaad! Real operation A cardiologist developed an operating procedure that would cut down the time that surgery would take and would reduce patient pain. When he presented it at a convention he was paid $50,000. The cardiologist did a few more presentations and decided to devote full time to the lecture series, so he hired a driver and purchased a limousine. One day, after hed been doing the lecture circuit for about 6 months, his driver said to him, This is completely unfair. What do you mean? the surgeon asked. Well, you get paid $50,000 every time you do this lecture and thats more than I get in a year, replied the driver. The surgeon said that its a very complicated procedure and that he is the only person that can give this lecture. Thats not true. I have seen you do it so many times that I know it by heart, replied the driver. Well if thats the case, Ill tell you what. You do this lecture and you can keep the $50,000 if you do it right. the surgeon retorted. The driver replied, Ok. Youre on. At the lecture hall the surgeon and the driver changed coats and the surgeon put on the drivers hat and sat in the back of the room. The driver nailed the presentation. Not only that, he also answered questions without any problems. Just when the driver thought he was done, an audience member asked a complex question that the driver couldnt answer. The driver said, I have done this lecture 287 times and I have never been asked such a simple question. Its so easy that I am going to let my driver answer it. Selective Hearing? Morris, an 86 year-old man, had his yearly appointment with his cardiologist. A few days later the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm. Later the doctor spoke to Morris and said, Youre really doing great, arent you? Morris replied, Just doing what you said, Doc: Get a hot mamma and be cheerful. The doctor said, I didnt say that. I said, Youve got a heart murmur. Be careful. Ping pong Eric was in the midst of a very competitive table tennis match when he accidentally caught a slammed ball in the mouth and swallowed it. Gasping for air, he was rushed to the local hospital where surgery was performed. When Eric awoke several hours later he looked up at the doctor and thanked him for saving his life. Then he looked down and saw about twelve sewn up incisions on his stomach. Good gosh! exclaimed the patient. Why did you make so many cuts? The doctor spread his palms and replied, Thats the way the ball bounces. Specialists An attractive young woman was being shown around the ship by Tim, a young intern, who was explaining to her how he had gone through medical school on a Navy loan program. And what is your specialty now? asked the woman. Im a naval surgeon, Tim responded. My, oh, my, sighed the woman. Medicine is certainly getting specialized these days!

The space was well utilized because in addition to his children, Joe has 15 grandchildren and five great grandchildren with two more on the way. He also has three half sisters; Paula, Debbie and Linda who all live in Felch Michigan. Joe and Irene celebrated 50 years of marriage with a family cruise down the Potomac River. A grand time was had by all and Joe looks back on it with fond memories. Unfortunately, just weeks after that cruise, Irene was diagnosed with cancer and passed away shortly there after. Joe speaks lovingly about her being The glue that held the family together. It is a role that he now proudly has assumed. In order to be close to his only surviving brother, Ray, in Zephyrhills, Joe did some research on line and other sources and found Cherrywood. Since that time he has become the Vice President of the Veterans Club; joined the mens pool league and the bowling league and takes part in many other activities including the sport he loves; golf. Besides his family, Joe has another important connection remaining in Maryland; Julie Nelia. They met at an American Legion Post five years ago and she has two sons and a granddaughter Kyla that shes crazy about. They plan a Caribbean cruise in December after Julia retires. Following that cruise, we are hoping to have another addition to the Cherrywood family. Joe has a demonstrated love of family; love of country and love for Cherrywood. His contribution to this community has been felt by all who know him. Joe will be playing the trumpet at our Memorial Day observance so be sure to thank him for his service.From your reporterIf you have any comments or suggestions concerning the Cherrywood section of the Citizen please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I am always pleased to hear from you, the reader, on any ways to improve this column.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISE Call 854-3986 ADVERTISING O ur next meeting will take place on Thursday, May 16, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. Last year the SPCA donated funds to the Marion County Sheriffs Office to sponsor a new dog needed for their K-9 unit. At this months meeting we finally get to meet Pyro and his partner Deputy Colton Sullivan, our guest speaker. We hope you come out to see them and hear about their wonderful partnership. Please give us a call at 352-362-0985 if you would like more information about our meetings or have any other questions for us. Dont forget to visit the SPCA table at the Farmers Market at Circle Square Commons on 80th Street in On Top of the World Communities on the first Thursday of every month. Open to the public, we sell used books at only 25 cents to a dollar and every penny goes to help the animals of Marion County. This is also a good way to stop by and ask questions about our organization. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) recently put out a reminder about common plants that are toxic to dogs, cats, and horses that we want to share with you. Please keep these plants in mind as you add to your garden for the spring and summer. These plants include: azaleas, begonias, bird of paradise, castor bean plant, chrysanthemums, hibiscus, and oleander. Lilies of all kinds are especially toxic to cats and can cause kidney damage. The ASPCA suggests that you tell your florist to not include any type of lily in an arrangement sent to someone who has a cat. Please call your veterinarian if your pet ingests one of these plants. Your vet can also let you know about other plants that are poisonous before you start gardening. Adoption NewsThe Marion County Animal Center would like your help in getting a wonderful older dog adopted. January, the smaller black Labrador retriever pictured here, was found by a Good Samaritan wandering around as a stray who brought her to the shelter. She has been there since January and thats how she was named, and now thats too long for such a sweet, 8-year-old girl to be in the shelter system. They absolutely love here there and want her to find her forever home pronto. Shes still active, friendly, and loving. Shes housetrained to perfection she wont even do her business in the kennel like most of the dogs, but waits till shes taken outside for her walk. She also knows how to sit and stay. As we discussed at length in last months column, there are so many benefits to adopting an older dog theyre calmer, often well housetrained, and dont require as much training as a puppy or adolescent. January is so wonderful that the Animal Center says that she would make a great addition to any family. Now they dont say that everyday about every dog, so it goes to show that she is indeed special. When you call about this beauty, please reference ID number A090256. Please dont delay calling 352-671-8700; shes already been there too long. January is available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of SPCA members will get to meet K-9 dog Paws & Claws Maria Devine calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St. The center is open Tuesday through Saturday and closed on Sunday and Monday. You can call for hours. The fun loving Labradoodle Mack from last months column still needs a home. Pet Network is working hard to find him an appropriate one. The best family for Mack has experience with larger dogs and has the patience to train and socialize him. He can be a great dog for the right person or family. Hes only three years old, and it would be a shame if he has to live the rest of his life in foster care. If you enjoy working with dogs to bring out the best in them, please call Mary at 352-528-0270 and she will fill you in on the details. Lets try to find this sweet deserving boy a new home. Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. Above is January, while at the right is Mack. Small dog found in Palm Cay This lively little terrier mix was found on April 28 in the back section of Palm Cay. He has no tags and no microchip. If you know where he belongs, please call the SPCA at 362-0985. If owner is not found, he will be available for adoption. If you would like him, let us know and we will call you if he becomes available.

Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature people who have had an interesting past; a promising future or who have contributed to the quality of life her at Cherrywood. This week we feature a relative newcomer to Cherrywood, Joseph Gignac who moved into our community just last October. Joe was born during the Great Depression in Portland, Maine; the second youngest of seven children. Times were difficult and after the break up of his parents when he was only five, he was put with his brothers into Saint Louis boarding school for boys. Joes father was an immigrant from Quebec, Canada and by trade a carpenter. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, he was able to find work in a ship building facility making liberty ships. Being back to work allowed him to purchase a home and bring all of his children, including Joe, back under one roof. Remembering his early childhood, Joe talks about going out and collecting pop bottles at the factories and plants instead of going to school. He and his buddies had a wagon that they would fill up and after cashing in the bottles, the money was brought home to buy milk; eggs or other staples. At 14, Joe got a job in a sardine packing facility for 35 cents per hour. He kept that job through high school and managed to play Junior Varsity football and run Track as well. Jokingly, Joe says he still loves sardines to this day; especially the ones packed in peanut oil. Just prior to graduation, the Korean War began. Joe, ever the patriot, went with several of his friends and joined the U.S. Air Force. Within days he was off to Sampson AFB in upstate New York for basic training. It was the beginning of what would be a very successful career. Leaving Sampson, Joe was transferred to Bergstorm AFB in Austin Texas for further training in Personnel Management. After a short tour of duty in Texas where Joe was also working in the recruiting office, he was reassigned to Scott AFB Illinois for Personnel and Career Guidance instruction. Upon completion of that training he was assigned to Limestone AFB, a SAC base in northern Maine. Joe reenlisted and was accepted for the USAF Security Service Language program. He went to Kelly AFB in San Antonio Texas for Russian pre-language school. He was then assigned to the 6970th Support Group in Suitland Maryland continuing in the Personnel field. While stationed in Suitland, Maryland, Joe happened into a coffee shop. He noticed a beautiful young girl sitting with her sister. Being a red blooded American male, Joe approached their table. He found out her name was Irene, and they made arrangements for a date later in the week. We can only assume the date went well because four months later, Joe and Irene were married at Saint Francis XavierFriday, May 10, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Church in Washington D.C. Irene traveled the world with Joe following him from one duty station to the other. During that time she and Joe had five children including Edward whom they jokingly call Eddie the Turk. Edward was born in Ankara, Turkey and didnt receive his citizenship papers until he was ten. Their other children are Helen, Danny, Nathan and Lois. As Joe progressed through his career he gained ever more responsibility and rank. So impressed was the Air Force with his abilities as a Section Chief and leader that they appointed him to the Inspector Generals Staff. For those of you without military experience the IG inspections are the foremost method of government control and monitoring of the armed services. It is the job of the IG to insure that all training is effective and up to date; all equipment assigned to the unit is functioning as it should be; all planes, vehicles and tools are being maintained and utilized correctly and effectively. Only top notch experts in their field attain a position on the IG staff. During his two year tour of duty with the IG, Joe traveled to Japan, Guam, Okinawa, the Philippines and many other bases around the world. He admits it was a tough tour because of the amount of time required and being away from home so much. In 1972, Joe was able to retire from the Air Force and then began his career with a company called Planning Research Corporation. It was with this organization that Joe was able to utilize all the skills and talents that he had developed over the years in the Air Force. After completing an Associate Degree in Production Management, Joe was assigned a key role with PRC as they received the contract to update and modernize all of the personnel records for the Department of the Air Force and Navy. The family was once again moved, this time to Washington, D.C. Following that project, an even more technical opportunity opened for Joe. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration had established the NASA Scientific and Technical Information Facility at Linthicum, Maryland. The mission of the facility was to collect and build a database of R & D reports gather from its participating partners all over the world. This database consolidated information gathered from space exploration. The database minimized costly duplicate research by NASA scientists and engineers. Joe remained on this project as supervisor for over 15 years maintaining and operating the facility as Deputy General Manager. When he retired, Joe and Irene were free to enjoy their family. They built a large cabin in West CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 Joseph Gignac SEE CHERRYWOOD PAGE25 Sunday, May 19 Country Sunday luncheonThe Friendship Fellowship Luncheon features fried chicken and side dishes provided by regular attendees.

The seminar will enhance attendees sensitivity and understanding of veterans and provide new interventions to better serve dying veterans and their families. Attention is placed on veteran generations now aging and most likely to be seen in end-of-life care (WWII, Korean War, Vietnam). In addition to individual interventions, the program also will look at military benefits and intersections with VA systems. Finally, the program explores the traditions and sensitivities of grieving families and resources that can assist them. The information will be useful to clinicians, administrators, and other staff working in hospice and palliative care, hospitals, long-term care and assisted living facilities. A local panel of experts will be available for discussion following the presentation. Continuing Education credits are available for a processing fee.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Taking advice isnt always easy for selfassured Rams and Ewes who think they know whats best. But it wouldnt hurt to listen to what close colleagues have to say. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You know how to balance lifes practical aspects with the poetic. This gives you a special edge this week in both your professional endeavors and your personal life. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Focus on keeping a balance between your home-related activities and your workplace responsibilities. Be mindful of both without obsessing over one or the other. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A change in plans is likely as you discover more facts about a possible commitment. Continue to ask questions and, if youre not sure about the answers, demand proof. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Be careful not to let that Leonine pride keep you from seeking wise, experienced counsel before making an important decision. A family member once again seeks your help. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) That surge of Virgo energy drives you to take on more work assignments. Be careful you dont overdo it, or you might find yourself overdone: i.e., burned out. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your decision to be upfront with colleagues on a touchy matter causes some consternation at first. But in the end, your honesty wins their trust and admiration. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) As in the past, someone again wants to share a secret with you, knowing it will be safe. But do you really want to be this persons confidante? Think about it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) As one of natures straight shooters, you seek to correct misconceptions about a project. Do so, of course, but without giving away too much too soon. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Creative pursuits continue to be strong in the gifted Goats aspect. New friendships can come from sharing these experiences with likeminded art aficionados. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Resolve lingering grumblings over your way of doing things by keeping your mind open to suggestions while continuing to show how plans will work. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) The perceptive Piscean might find that changing course in midstream isnt as workable as it would seem. Explore this option carefully before making a decision. BORN THIS WEEK: Your willingness to share your love of lifes good things brings joy to many, including, of course, yourself. Saturday Breakfast is served from 8 to 10 a.m. Donation is $4.

Berean Baptist Church will host Life Line Screening on May 13. The site is at 4800 S.W. 20th St. in Ocala. There may be a charge for the screening. Four key points every person needs to know: Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability. 80 percent of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke. Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke. Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient. For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-800-697-9721 or visit our website at www.lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required. Screenings identify potential cardiovascular conditions such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women. Many sites offer finger-stick blood tests to check for cholesterol and glucose. Packages start at $0. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. Life Line Screening was established in 1993, and has since become the nations leading provider of preventive screenings.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, May 10, 2013 W hen considering topics for this column, we were disinclined to offer an opinion on reinstatement of disciplinary paddling in the Marion County public schools. However, reconsideration raised thoughts of some disturbing characteristics of corporal punishment. (Coincidentally reinstatement means restoration to a previous position pun intended). Our personal experience with corporal punishment was mostly observational. When we entered public school in 1937, mom said to beware of Miss Vernon, a teacher who performed patrol duty with vigor, and a cane rattan in hand. The rattan was an attention getter for students coming down the up staircase or running in the corridor. A single swat behind a knee and a verbal reprimand were reminders that repetition of the observed offense or any other bad behavior could result in a couple of rattan strokes applied to a perpetrators buttocks usually performed in a classroom coat closet. A milder form of physical punishment was a ruler applied to student knuckles for talking in class, chewing gum, and other minor offenses. Memory suggests girls were more likely to suffer a tap of the twelve inch stick than boys. When Marion County discontinued paddling in 2010, the reason was that paddling is not as effective as it was when Charles Dickens was writing David Copperfield and other novels about widespread 19th century child abuse in schools and workplaces. Only 19 of our states still believe sparing the rod is less effective than spanking the student. Paradoxically, paddling too often or too enthusiastically at home could earn a night in jail and an explanation to a judge. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that spanking in schools is OK provided the spankee received his or her fourteenth amendment rights to due process and equal protection. Were unaware whether states which allow spanking send their principals to a constitutional law seminar, or just offer them a copy of Baker v. Owen (423 US 907) as an orientation to legal paddling. In states where corporal punishment by paddling is available, the practice gradually becomes a mish-mosh of permissions, exemptions, opt-outs, necessity of witnesses, whether there should be same sex paddlers, whether only boys should be paddled, and whether 16-18 year old students are too adult to be paddled. The safeguard in Marion Countys reinstated physical discipline is pre-signed parental permission to paddle and notice to the parent when the discipline is to be administered. It is not unreasonable to posit that good intentions of public education have contributed to widespread abdication of parental responsibilities. For anyone who hasnt heard or noticed, absence of parental responsibility has contributed significantly to the overflowing population of our prisons. The hidden downside of corporal punishment in public schools is the uncertain psychological effects it may have on teachers, students, and staff who are not involved and do not wish to be. The School Board had it right in 2010, but the current board couldnt leave well enough alone. T he year was well, it was in the late 1940s, Im not sure exactly what year it was. I was just a little kid then, but I remember going out in the car with my dad and mom. We went to a vacant parking lot and, shock of shocks, my folks switched positions and mom got behind the wheel. She was learning to drive. My mother was raised in New York City, and took the subway, or walked, to get everywhere. Even after she got married, when my dad was shipped out to the ChinaBurma-Indian Theatre in World War II, she continued to live in the Bronx, where I was born, and got around on public transportation or her own two feet. But after we moved to New Jersey in 1946, well, public transportation didnt run next door, the grocery stores were quite a distance, and since dad was taking the train, then the ferry, to New York every day, she was more or less marooned at our house. So she learned to drive. I remember riding with her to pick dad up at the station she was a pretty good driver of our big gas guzzler (of course gas was only 15 cents a gallon then). Later I found out she was really very nervous about driving, but she felt it was necessary, especially with me about to start school. She had sacrificed her own comfort to make sure I stayed warm and dry while going to class. It was just one of the many sacrifices she made in her life for her child, and one of those little things that pops into my mind every time we get close to Mothers Day, which is this coming Sunday, May 12. For example, I thought, when I was little, my mother was psychic. Shed be working in the kitchen and I was in the living room sitting on the sofa, with my feet up on the couch. Get your feet down, came this voice from the kitchen. How did she do that? I thought. It took me years to realize that the mirror on the wall behind the piano was aimed so she could see the whole living room from the kitchen. My mother died in 1997 at the age of 82, and I hope I told her enough that I loved her and appreciated all that she did for me. Some of you are lucky. You still have your mothers around to call, visit, etc. You still have a chance to let them know what they meant in your life, and I doubt if theres a mother anywhere in the world who doesnt like hearing that. So as we get to Mothers Day 2013, take the time to call or visit your mother, if thats possible. In this day of e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, etc., its easy to type a note, just as it was easy in my day to send a card. But a personal conversation is much better, and you can convey feelings much better in a personto-person meeting. Whatever you do, dont forget mom this Sunday. If shes no longer around, you have your memories take time to reflect. And if shes still here, shell undoubtedly get a great feeling when that phone rings and youre on the other end. And to all the mothers out there, I hope you have a great day. On behalf of all of us, Happy Mothers Day to you. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Y ears ago, when the Florida Legislature, under pressure from the Feds, adopted a mandatory seat belt use law, they made it a secondary offense. In other words, police couldnt stop you for not using a seat belt. They had to stop you for something else before you could receive a seat belt citation. Eventually, someone realized how silly this was, so they made it a primary violation. Now if you drive down the road without your seat belt hooked up, you can be pulled over. Weve always been against the seat belt law. What a person does in their own car, if it affects no one else, shouldnt be law enforcements business. It should be personal preference. Now along comes the Legislature again, this time passing a bill banning texting while driving. This one were in favor of, because it does affect other drivers. If someone is going down the road concentrating on texting and not on the road, it could cause accidents and result in injuries to others. But, in its wisdom, the Legislature has, once again, passed a toothless law, making it a secondary offense. That means that if youre driving down the road texting, and not violating any other laws, the police cant stop you (although cynics say that theyll find something else wrong to stop you, anyway). Eventually, someone will realize that this, too, is silly, and the legislators will have to go through the process of passing the law all over again, something that should have been done in the first place. Texting while driving is distracted driving there is no doubt about that. It should be banned. As the public service announcement on TV says, your thumbs have other things to do while youre driving. But passing a law that sort of makes it illegal is not the answer. So legislators should start planning now to pass an additional law in the next session. Common sense didnt prevail this time around, but maybe in 2014 it will surface in Tallahassee. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY New texting ban is another farce Mothers sacrifice: learning to drive Bend over, grip your ankles, and no laughing READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Flynn Columnist Jim Clark Editor BY GLENN MOLLETTE Special to the Citizen Each of us must take responsibility for our health. We must become more active as a nation and more selective about what we eat. The average American is overweight and a large percentage of our nation is obese. Healthier citizens lead to lowering health care costs in America. Diabetes and heart disease are two of our leading causes of death. Walking every day and cutting the size of our food portions will help us to fight diabetes and heart disease. Activity plays a role in reducing some forms of cancer. A healthier America will be a more productive America. When you are obese you do not feel energized. When you are not energized you are not prone to be and do your best at your job. People who become unemployed and let themselves go physically normally do not feel energized to look for a job. An emphasis on being healthy with every community having access to safe walking, biking paths and trails would be a plus for our country. Health care insurance premiums should be reduced for every American who is trying to live a healthier lifestyle. Americans who keep their body mass index at 27 percent or below, exercise, abstain from smoking and drink only moderately should pay less in premiums. This will require a visit to the doctor once a year to certify the BMI but it will be worth it. If you are working to try to live a healthy lifestyle, you shouldnt have to pay for the health care insurance of your neighbor who eats and smokes like there is no tomorrow. These people are the ones who should have the Fitness, obesity and medical care in America higher premiums. If I drive at 100 mph when I am in the car then I am the one who should pay the higher car insurance, not my neighbor who drives 55 mph. Insurance companies should reward individuals for their successful efforts. For example if someones BMI is reduced PLEASESEEMOLLETTE PAGE26 Try your luck at the Hard Rock Caf on Friday, May 31.

Color RED is free! 10 ~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com PACKING FOR MARS By Mary Roach In Packing for Mars, science writer Mary Roach debunks the notion that an astronauts life is glamorous, often in highly amusing ways. She first points out that to a rocket scientist humans are a problem and the most irritating piece of machinery that he or she will ever have to deal with. To that end, procedures, equipment, and supplies must be designed to best serve themwhich launches the weird science of preparing for space exploration. Theres the unglamorous problem of motion sickness that plagues many space travelers. Addressing it four physicians in 1996 conducted experiments on vomiting and what did they use for a vomitussimulating substance? Progresso vegetable soup. Roach quips, Judging from their Web site the Progresso people would be horrified if they knew. They have a fairly highbrow view of canned foods, even going so far as pairing wines with their product line. At NASA there are other myriad queasy problems to solve like what to do with all the urine that accumulates in the capsule. Scientists do find a solution through desalination, a process that turns the urine into a delicious drink, tasting something like Karo syrup, the author tells us. (But her husband is freaked out when she stores samples in their refrigerator.) Equally challenging are unanticipated problems such as the euphoria some space walkers experience that makes them want to stay outside the capsule. In one case it took crew members 25 minutes to coax the astronaut back inside. And what, scientists pondered, would be the effect on the body reclining for the long trip to Mars. To find out, they paid volunteers to lie flat in bed for a solid three months. The result was a troubling loss of bone mass. Still debunking spaceflight romance, Roach exposes NASAs untold sanitation woes by quoting Jim Lovell: The Gemini 7 mission was like spending two weeks in a latrine. Combing her extensive research for interesting tidbits she describes the psychological testing of Japanese astronauts that involves rapidly constructing origami cranes while under stress. In closing, she acknowledges the exorbitant cost of sending a human astronaut to Mars. Her response is that if the government would use such funds for curing cancer shed say scrap the Mars plan. But since that wont happen, she adds, lets join hands and say we can do this. Heres a book thats both entertaining and informative. Weird science of preparing for space exploration Bookmark Pat Wellington B e at the clubhouse on Wednesday, May 15 for the funniest fashion show youll ever experience. At 1 p.m., Rich Becotte will start the music for our models to begin their walk down the runway. The tunes are matched to the models outfits and that in itself should be a hoot. Fifteen contestants will show off their fashion styles in competition and the word styles is used very loosely in that sentence. With a budget of only $15 the models have limited funds to make up their own outfits which will be original; unique and in some cases totally absurd. Here is a list of those who will be competing on Wednesday; Loretta and Jerry Moscariello; Marion OHern; Bonnie Clark; Jenny Arturi; Joyce Stacer; Ann Bardock; Rich Hurley; Midge Lee; Holly and Dave Bragdon; Mick James; Jim Houghtaling; Bill Brotherhood and Geris own Lentz. If you know any of these people, you know you will see some astonishing and hilarious fashions. Seating is limited so see Geri right now to get tickets. Its only two bucks per person and desserts will be served if you arent laughing too hard to eat them. If you have a favorite dessert that you would like to share, feel free to bring that with you and as always, you are welcome to bring your favorite beverage. Newcomers Coffee HourSaturday May 18 at 10 a.m. the Welcoming Committee has set up a free coffee hour for all of our new residents to Cherrywood. Many new people have come into our community over the past year or so and this is a chance for those recent residents to learn about all there is to do in our great community. If you have moved in recently, contact Geri and make a reservation for this informal gathering of good neighbors. You will receive maps; hand outs and tips that will make the stressful event of moving much easier. There will be the leaders of many of our committees including Social Committee; Activities Committee; Veterans Club; CERT Team; Knitting Club; Mens and Ladies Pool leagues and Garden Club just to mention a few. If you have any questions concerning Cherrywood or Ocala, you will find the answers at this warm welcoming event. You have moved into a very active and friendly community here in Cherrywood so dont miss this opportunity to learn more about it and to meet some of your neighbors. Derby DayThey might have had a good time at Churchill Downs on Saturday evening, but we had a great time here at Cherrywood. Fred OHern made some special Mint Juleps; everyone brought pot luck snacks and the hat contest was the best. Over 50 people joined in sharing the good eats that people brought to be shared. Everything from sandwiches to cakes; fruit and pies and relish trays made sure that no one went hungry before during or after the race. Our ladies outdid themselves with their artistic and creative talents. The hats were wide and colorful requiring some detailed needle work and imagination. Holly Bragdon took first place in the contest with Marie Brotherhood coming in second and Monica Becotte in third place. Dave Bragdon won the door prize and Wanda Huff won the 50/50 drawing to end out the prizes. A total of $63 was raised for the Ocala Equine Rescue. Our thanks to the Social Committee volunteers for this fun and exciting event; they are Rich & Monica Becotte; Rich Hurley; Bill Mahar; Peggy Konar; Marti and Marty Duesel and Fred OHern. All of you did a great job and everyone enjoyed the evening immensely.Honor Flight On May 23 at 7 p.m. come to the clubhouse and join with others as we welcome home the last Marion County Honor Flight.

The last Honor Flight will be landing at the Ocala International Airport on that evening and we would like a large group of people to be there when these special veterans arrive home. At the last Veterans Club meeting, Morrey Deen advised the members that Marion County had the third largest contingent of WW II veterans in the country to take part in the Honor Flight.

Your Cherrywood Veterans Club will be holding its Memorial Day Service beginning at 11 a.m. on that date. Memorial Day is the most somber and solemn event in the calendar year for Americans. This day was set aside to honor the memory of all those who have died defending us from our enemies. It is a day of remembrance too for all those who have served and passed away since their service. We will remember our fallen heroes. Our service will begin with the presentation of the colors followed by the National Anthem. Additional honors will be rendered to our fallen with a wreath laying ceremony and the playing of taps. The Armed Forces Medley will pay tribute to those who served in each branch of service and guest speaker Steven Jacobs will be our keynote speaker. Mr. Jacobs is a Navy veteran who saw service in Operation Desert Storm; Operation Iraqi Freedom; Operation Enduring Freedom and Baltic Operations. Currently he is the head of Veterans Services Ocala. His experience and knowledge will be an interesting and significant contribution to our observance. This program is free to everyone who would like to attend. Immediately following our service, a luncheon of hot dogs and hamburgers; beans and Cole slaw and trimmings will take place behind the clubhouse. The cost of tickets for this picnic is $7 each. Iced tea and lemonade will be provided but guests may bring their own beverages. Guests are asked to provide a dessert to pass if they are able. We hope to have a large turn out for both the Memorial Day service and the meal that follows. Please see Geri for tickets as soon as possible. Veterans ClubGuest speaker Morrey Deen gave a terrific presentation at the Veterans Club meeting on May 2. He spoke about the last Honor Flight scheduled for May 23 and then gave an audio visual presentation about the proposed reconstruction of Fort King here in Ocala. Fort King was a major military installation, in fact the largest in central Florida during the Seminole Indian wars and played a significant role through out our early history. Morrey is the head of the Fort King Heritage Association. For more details, please go to the website and find out just how important this project is. The Ritz House for homeless veterans received a donation of fishing poles from Carl Rehl; Peggy from Oak Run and the Cherrywood Veterans Club. We thank all those who contributed to help make the lives of those at Ritz house a bit more pleasant. President Mahar urged all members to advise him or Ruth Hurley, our new Sunshine Girl if they know of any members in sickness or distress. We make every effort to make contact with our fellow veterans when they need us but if we dont know, we cannot take any action. Our next meeting will be on June 6 at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse and the guest speakers will be Al Morrison and company from the Ritz House.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I n growing up, one of the outstanding things in my relationship with my mother had to do with her memory. She could remember everything. All I had to do was ask dear old mom and she knew the answer. She knew everything. No matter the topic, she had an opinion about it, which truly amazed me as a young person. Before I went to school, my mother was my entire world. From the time I got up in the morning until she tucked me in bed at night, she was the master of my world. Whatever I could do, she was the one who allowed me to do it. Looking back, I can remember when my father got home from work in the evening he gave my mother a little break from looking after me and my brother and sister. If memory serves me correctly, my father watched us by lying on the couch snoring. I never could figure out how he could do that but it was his way of watching us and helping mom. As a young person, anything I wanted I had to requisition it from dear old mom. The thing that always amazed me was that she always had what I needed. I have often wondered how she could do that. But then, she was mom. My weekly allowance came from my mother. It took me a long time to realize the money for my allowance came from my father. I always believe mom had all the money there was. I remember coming home from the second grade with homework to do that just baffled me. All I had to do was ask mom and she could explain it to me like nobody else could. Mothers are like that. They know everything and remember everything. What my mother knew only my mother could know. It was as if she could read my mind. It was as if she had eyes in the back of her head. It was so bad that I could not get away with anything. Believe me; I tried very hard to get away with something. For some reason my mother knew what I was going to do days before I actually thought about doing it. I am not sure who is credited with designing the first memory board for computers, but I know who designed the memory board for people. I firmly believe that mothers were the first computer designed and wired by God. Why in the world do you think they call it the motherboard? It is no accident that they come up with this term. My mother had a tremendous memory. This is the difference between mothers and fathers. Mothers cannot forget anything and fathers cannot remember anything. Together they make an invincible team for raising children. It was not until I became a teenager that a little click developed between my mother and me. I began to realize that my memory did not always harmonize with hers on some issues. As I got older, the harmony was less and less. For example. My mother would tell me, You must be home by 10 oclock. At least, that is what she said she told me after the fact. When I came in at 11 oclock, she reminded me of what she told me. For the life of me, I could not remember her telling me to be home by 10 oclock. I told you to clean up your room. Searching my memory board, I could not find any indication that she told me this. I am not saying that she did not; I am just saying that our memories did not coincide on a variety of issues when I became a teenager. What struck me about my mother was she could remember conversation she had with me three years ago word for word. As I get older, I began to doubt the accuracy of her memory. The problem with that was, I had no memory of anything and so I had to rely upon her memory. Now that I am a parent, it is apparent to me that memory is a rather funny thing. I am not sure that my mother was in this category, but my memory is of such a nature that I can remember things that never took place. Not only that, I can describe it in detail. As a teenager I remember coming into the room and my mother sitting there looking out the window with a little smile on her face. What are you thinking about? She just looked at me, smiled and said, Oh, I was just remembering some things. Then she turned and looked out the window again and I left her to her memories. In celebrating Mothers Day, I cannot help but think of the many wonderful Oh, for a memory like dear old moms Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder memories each mother cherishes. Their children will always be children. No matter how old their children get, they will always be their little babies. Memory is a delightful thing and sometimes can be very selective. I am sure, when a mother engages in the fine art of memory, they are all good memories. Solomon was probably thinking about his mother when he wrote, Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all (Proverbs 31:28-29 KJV). You cannot put a price on a good memory.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or e-mail jamessnyder2@att.net.

Remember, you can donate blood even if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, and you only need be cancer-free for one year. Ask if you are eligible to donate via ALYX, the state-of-the art automated blood collection system, allowing you to donate two units of red cells in just one visit. Your blood donation will benefit Floridas Blood Centers, which is the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. And there are benefits for you, too. After donating blood, the count of blood cells decreases in our body, which stimulates the bone marrow to produce new red blood cells in order to replenish the loss, and the new blood cells are fresh, cholesterol-free cells. That fact alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on May 15. We hope to see you there! Line Dancing is backPut on your dancing shoes and join us for some Line Dancing.

Our bimonthly Blood Drive will be held on Wednesday, May 15; and the Bloodmobile will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Residents may sign up on the registration sheet hanging on the Activity Wall or drop by and see Pat in the Lobby. Remember, you can donate blood even if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, and you only need be cancer-free for one year. Ask if you are eligible to donate via ALYX, the state-of-the art automated blood collection system, allowing you to donate two units of red cells in just one visit. Your blood donation will benefit Floridas Blood Centers, which is the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. And there are benefits for you, too. After donating blood, the count of blood cells decreases in our body, which stimulates the bone marrow to produce new red blood cells in order to replenish the loss, and the new blood cells are fresh, cholesterol-free cells. That fact alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on May 15. We hope to see you there! Line Dancing is backPut on your dancing shoes and join us for some Line Dancing.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I n growing up, one of the outstanding things in my relationship with my mother had to do with her memory. She could remember everything. All I had to do was ask dear old mom and she knew the answer. She knew everything. No matter the topic, she had an opinion about it, which truly amazed me as a young person. Before I went to school, my mother was my entire world. From the time I got up in the morning until she tucked me in bed at night, she was the master of my world. Whatever I could do, she was the one who allowed me to do it. Looking back, I can remember when my father got home from work in the evening he gave my mother a little break from looking after me and my brother and sister. If memory serves me correctly, my father watched us by lying on the couch snoring. I never could figure out how he could do that but it was his way of watching us and helping mom. As a young person, anything I wanted I had to requisition it from dear old mom. The thing that always amazed me was that she always had what I needed. I have often wondered how she could do that. But then, she was mom. My weekly allowance came from my mother. It took me a long time to realize the money for my allowance came from my father. I always believe mom had all the money there was. I remember coming home from the second grade with homework to do that just baffled me. All I had to do was ask mom and she could explain it to me like nobody else could. Mothers are like that. They know everything and remember everything. What my mother knew only my mother could know. It was as if she could read my mind. It was as if she had eyes in the back of her head. It was so bad that I could not get away with anything. Believe me; I tried very hard to get away with something. For some reason my mother knew what I was going to do days before I actually thought about doing it. I am not sure who is credited with designing the first memory board for computers, but I know who designed the memory board for people. I firmly believe that mothers were the first computer designed and wired by God. Why in the world do you think they call it the motherboard? It is no accident that they come up with this term. My mother had a tremendous memory. This is the difference between mothers and fathers. Mothers cannot forget anything and fathers cannot remember anything. Together they make an invincible team for raising children. It was not until I became a teenager that a little click developed between my mother and me. I began to realize that my memory did not always harmonize with hers on some issues. As I got older, the harmony was less and less. For example. My mother would tell me, You must be home by 10 oclock. At least, that is what she said she told me after the fact. When I came in at 11 oclock, she reminded me of what she told me. For the life of me, I could not remember her telling me to be home by 10 oclock. I told you to clean up your room. Searching my memory board, I could not find any indication that she told me this. I am not saying that she did not; I am just saying that our memories did not coincide on a variety of issues when I became a teenager. What struck me about my mother was she could remember conversation she had with me three years ago word for word. As I get older, I began to doubt the accuracy of her memory. The problem with that was, I had no memory of anything and so I had to rely upon her memory. Now that I am a parent, it is apparent to me that memory is a rather funny thing. I am not sure that my mother was in this category, but my memory is of such a nature that I can remember things that never took place. Not only that, I can describe it in detail. As a teenager I remember coming into the room and my mother sitting there looking out the window with a little smile on her face. What are you thinking about? She just looked at me, smiled and said, Oh, I was just remembering some things. Then she turned and looked out the window again and I left her to her memories. In celebrating Mothers Day, I cannot help but think of the many wonderful Oh, for a memory like dear old moms Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder memories each mother cherishes. Their children will always be children. No matter how old their children get, they will always be their little babies. Memory is a delightful thing and sometimes can be very selective. I am sure, when a mother engages in the fine art of memory, they are all good memories. Solomon was probably thinking about his mother when he wrote, Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all (Proverbs 31:28-29 KJV). You cannot put a price on a good memory.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or e-mail jamessnyder2@att.net.

Color RED is free! 10 ~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com PACKING FOR MARS By Mary Roach In Packing for Mars, science writer Mary Roach debunks the notion that an astronauts life is glamorous, often in highly amusing ways. She first points out that to a rocket scientist humans are a problem and the most irritating piece of machinery that he or she will ever have to deal with. To that end, procedures, equipment, and supplies must be designed to best serve themwhich launches the weird science of preparing for space exploration. Theres the unglamorous problem of motion sickness that plagues many space travelers. Addressing it four physicians in 1996 conducted experiments on vomiting and what did they use for a vomitussimulating substance? Progresso vegetable soup. Roach quips, Judging from their Web site the Progresso people would be horrified if they knew. They have a fairly highbrow view of canned foods, even going so far as pairing wines with their product line. At NASA there are other myriad queasy problems to solve like what to do with all the urine that accumulates in the capsule. Scientists do find a solution through desalination, a process that turns the urine into a delicious drink, tasting something like Karo syrup, the author tells us. (But her husband is freaked out when she stores samples in their refrigerator.) Equally challenging are unanticipated problems such as the euphoria some space walkers experience that makes them want to stay outside the capsule. In one case it took crew members 25 minutes to coax the astronaut back inside. And what, scientists pondered, would be the effect on the body reclining for the long trip to Mars. To find out, they paid volunteers to lie flat in bed for a solid three months. The result was a troubling loss of bone mass. Still debunking spaceflight romance, Roach exposes NASAs untold sanitation woes by quoting Jim Lovell: The Gemini 7 mission was like spending two weeks in a latrine. Combing her extensive research for interesting tidbits she describes the psychological testing of Japanese astronauts that involves rapidly constructing origami cranes while under stress. In closing, she acknowledges the exorbitant cost of sending a human astronaut to Mars. Her response is that if the government would use such funds for curing cancer shed say scrap the Mars plan. But since that wont happen, she adds, lets join hands and say we can do this. Heres a book thats both entertaining and informative. Weird science of preparing for space exploration Bookmark Pat Wellington B e at the clubhouse on Wednesday, May 15 for the funniest fashion show youll ever experience. At 1 p.m., Rich Becotte will start the music for our models to begin their walk down the runway. The tunes are matched to the models outfits and that in itself should be a hoot. Fifteen contestants will show off their fashion styles in competition and the word styles is used very loosely in that sentence. With a budget of only $15 the models have limited funds to make up their own outfits which will be original; unique and in some cases totally absurd. Here is a list of those who will be competing on Wednesday; Loretta and Jerry Moscariello; Marion OHern; Bonnie Clark; Jenny Arturi; Joyce Stacer; Ann Bardock; Rich Hurley; Midge Lee; Holly and Dave Bragdon; Mick James; Jim Houghtaling; Bill Brotherhood and Geris own Lentz. If you know any of these people, you know you will see some astonishing and hilarious fashions. Seating is limited so see Geri right now to get tickets. Its only two bucks per person and desserts will be served if you arent laughing too hard to eat them. If you have a favorite dessert that you would like to share, feel free to bring that with you and as always, you are welcome to bring your favorite beverage. Newcomers Coffee HourSaturday May 18 at 10 a.m. the Welcoming Committee has set up a free coffee hour for all of our new residents to Cherrywood.

You have moved into a very active and friendly community here in Cherrywood so dont miss this opportunity to learn more about it and to meet some of your neighbors. Derby DayThey might have had a good time at Churchill Downs on Saturday evening, but we had a great time here at Cherrywood. Fred OHern made some special Mint Juleps; everyone brought pot luck snacks and the hat contest was the best. Over 50 people joined in sharing the good eats that people brought to be shared. Everything from sandwiches to cakes; fruit and pies and relish trays made sure that no one went hungry before during or after the race. Our ladies outdid themselves with their artistic and creative talents. The hats were wide and colorful requiring some detailed needle work and imagination. Holly Bragdon took first place in the contest with Marie Brotherhood coming in second and Monica Becotte in third place. Dave Bragdon won the door prize and Wanda Huff won the 50/50 drawing to end out the prizes. A total of $63 was raised for the Ocala Equine Rescue. Our thanks to the Social Committee volunteers for this fun and exciting event; they are Rich & Monica Becotte; Rich Hurley; Bill Mahar; Peggy Konar; Marti and Marty Duesel and Fred OHern. All of you did a great job and everyone enjoyed the evening immensely.Honor Flight On May 23 at 7 p.m. come to the clubhouse and join with others as we welcome home the last Marion County Honor Flight. The Honor Flight is a program that gives World War II veterans a chance to fly to Washington, D.C.. to see and enjoy the World War II monument. The last Honor Flight will be landing at the Ocala International Airport on that evening and we would like a large group of people to be there when these special veterans arrive home. At the last Veterans Club meeting, Morrey Deen advised the members that Marion County had the third largest contingent of WW II veterans in the country to take part in the Honor Flight. These men and women of the Greatest generation deserve our thanks; our recognition; and our salute. Wont you please join us? We will meet at the clubhouse and car pool to the airport. Contact Bill Mahar if you plan to attend at 352-873-1341. The Veterans Club is supplying small flags for everyone who attends. There is no charge for this special event.

Make a note on your calendars and keep watching because you wont want to miss out on this Memorial DayMay 30, a Thursday, is not the Official National Holiday but it is the original Memorial Day. Your Cherrywood Veterans Club will be holding its Memorial Day Service beginning at 11 a.m. on that date. Memorial Day is the most somber and solemn event in the calendar year for Americans. This day was set aside to honor the memory of all those who have died defending us from our enemies. It is a day of remembrance too for all those who have served and passed away since their service. We will remember our fallen heroes. Our service will begin with the presentation of the colors followed by the National Anthem. Additional honors will be rendered to our fallen with a wreath laying ceremony and the playing of taps. The Armed Forces Medley will pay tribute to those who served in each branch of service and guest speaker Steven Jacobs will be our keynote speaker. Mr. Jacobs is a Navy veteran who saw service in Operation Desert Storm; Operation Iraqi Freedom; Operation Enduring Freedom and Baltic Operations. Currently he is the head of Veterans Services Ocala. His experience and knowledge will be an interesting and significant contribution to our observance. This program is free to everyone who would like to attend. Immediately following our service, a luncheon of hot dogs and hamburgers; beans and Cole slaw and trimmings will take place behind the clubhouse. The cost of tickets for this picnic is $7 each. Iced tea and lemonade will be provided but guests may bring their own beverages. Guests are asked to provide a dessert to pass if they are able. We hope to have a large turn out for both the Memorial Day service and the meal that follows. Please see Geri for tickets as soon as possible. Veterans ClubGuest speaker Morrey Deen gave a terrific presentation at the Veterans Club meeting on May 2. He spoke about the last Honor Flight scheduled for May 23 and then gave an audio visual presentation about the proposed reconstruction of Fort King here in Ocala. Fort King was a major military installation, in fact the largest in central Florida during the Seminole Indian wars and played a significant role through out our early history. Morrey is the head of the Fort King Heritage Association. For more details, please go to the website and find out just how important this project is. The Ritz House for homeless veterans received a donation of fishing poles from Carl Rehl; Peggy from Oak Run and the Cherrywood Veterans Club. We thank all those who contributed to help make the lives of those at Ritz house a bit more pleasant. President Mahar urged all members to advise him or Ruth Hurley, our new Sunshine Girl if they know of any members in sickness or distress. We make every effort to make contact with our fellow veterans when they need us but if we dont know, we cannot take any action. Our next meeting will be on June 6 at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse and the guest speakers will be Al Morrison and company from the Ritz House. All Cherrywood residents are welcome to attend and find out what your veterans club is doing for our community; county; state and nation.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, May 10, 2013 W hen considering topics for this column, we were disinclined to offer an opinion on reinstatement of disciplinary paddling in the Marion County public schools. However, reconsideration raised thoughts of some disturbing characteristics of corporal punishment. (Coincidentally reinstatement means restoration to a previous position pun intended). Our personal experience with corporal punishment was mostly observational. When we entered public school in 1937, mom said to beware of Miss Vernon, a teacher who performed patrol duty with vigor, and a cane rattan in hand. The rattan was an attention getter for students coming down the up staircase or running in the corridor. A single swat behind a knee and a verbal reprimand were reminders that repetition of the observed offense or any other bad behavior could result in a couple of rattan strokes applied to a perpetrators buttocks usually performed in a classroom coat closet. A milder form of physical punishment was a ruler applied to student knuckles for talking in class, chewing gum, and other minor offenses. Memory suggests girls were more likely to suffer a tap of the twelve inch stick than boys. When Marion County discontinued paddling in 2010, the reason was that paddling is not as effective as it was when Charles Dickens was writing David Copperfield and other novels about widespread 19th century child abuse in schools and workplaces. Only 19 of our states still believe sparing the rod is less effective than spanking the student. Paradoxically, paddling too often or too enthusiastically at home could earn a night in jail and an explanation to a judge. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that spanking in schools is OK provided the spankee received his or her fourteenth amendment rights to due process and equal protection. Were unaware whether states which allow spanking send their principals to a constitutional law seminar, or just offer them a copy of Baker v. Owen (423 US 907) as an orientation to legal paddling. In states where corporal punishment by paddling is available, the practice gradually becomes a mish-mosh of permissions, exemptions, opt-outs, necessity of witnesses, whether there should be same sex paddlers, whether only boys should be paddled, and whether 16-18 year old students are too adult to be paddled. The safeguard in Marion Countys reinstated physical discipline is pre-signed parental permission to paddle and notice to the parent when the discipline is to be administered. It is not unreasonable to posit that good intentions of public education have contributed to widespread abdication of parental responsibilities. For anyone who hasnt heard or noticed, absence of parental responsibility has contributed significantly to the overflowing population of our prisons. The hidden downside of corporal punishment in public schools is the uncertain psychological effects it may have on teachers, students, and staff who are not involved and do not wish to be. The School Board had it right in 2010, but the current board couldnt leave well enough alone. T he year was well, it was in the late 1940s, Im not sure exactly what year it was. I was just a little kid then, but I remember going out in the car with my dad and mom. We went to a vacant parking lot and, shock of shocks, my folks switched positions and mom got behind the wheel. She was learning to drive. My mother was raised in New York City, and took the subway, or walked, to get everywhere. Even after she got married, when my dad was shipped out to the ChinaBurma-Indian Theatre in World War II, she continued to live in the Bronx, where I was born, and got around on public transportation or her own two feet. But after we moved to New Jersey in 1946, well, public transportation didnt run next door, the grocery stores were quite a distance, and since dad was taking the train, then the ferry, to New York every day, she was more or less marooned at our house. So she learned to drive. I remember riding with her to pick dad up at the station she was a pretty good driver of our big gas guzzler (of course gas was only 15 cents a gallon then). Later I found out she was really very nervous about driving, but she felt it was necessary, especially with me about to start school. She had sacrificed her own comfort to make sure I stayed warm and dry while going to class. It was just one of the many sacrifices she made in her life for her child, and one of those little things that pops into my mind every time we get close to Mothers Day, which is this coming Sunday, May 12. For example, I thought, when I was little, my mother was psychic. Shed be working in the kitchen and I was in the living room sitting on the sofa, with my feet up on the couch. Get your feet down, came this voice from the kitchen. How did she do that? I thought. It took me years to realize that the mirror on the wall behind the piano was aimed so she could see the whole living room from the kitchen. My mother died in 1997 at the age of 82, and I hope I told her enough that I loved her and appreciated all that she did for me. Some of you are lucky. You still have your mothers around to call, visit, etc. You still have a chance to let them know what they meant in your life, and I doubt if theres a mother anywhere in the world who doesnt like hearing that. So as we get to Mothers Day 2013, take the time to call or visit your mother, if thats possible. In this day of e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, etc., its easy to type a note, just as it was easy in my day to send a card. But a personal conversation is much better, and you can convey feelings much better in a personto-person meeting. Whatever you do, dont forget mom this Sunday. If shes no longer around, you have your memories take time to reflect. And if shes still here, shell undoubtedly get a great feeling when that phone rings and youre on the other end. And to all the mothers out there, I hope you have a great day. On behalf of all of us, Happy Mothers Day to you. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Y ears ago, when the Florida Legislature, under pressure from the Feds, adopted a mandatory seat belt use law, they made it a secondary offense. In other words, police couldnt stop you for not using a seat belt. They had to stop you for something else before you could receive a seat belt citation. Eventually, someone realized how silly this was, so they made it a primary violation. Now if you drive down the road without your seat belt hooked up, you can be pulled over. Weve always been against the seat belt law. What a person does in their own car, if it affects no one else, shouldnt be law enforcements business. It should be personal preference. Now along comes the Legislature again, this time passing a bill banning texting while driving. This one were in favor of, because it does affect other drivers. If someone is going down the road concentrating on texting and not on the road, it could cause accidents and result in injuries to others. But, in its wisdom, the Legislature has, once again, passed a toothless law, making it a secondary offense. That means that if youre driving down the road texting, and not violating any other laws, the police cant stop you (although cynics say that theyll find something else wrong to stop you, anyway). Eventually, someone will realize that this, too, is silly, and the legislators will have to go through the process of passing the law all over again, something that should have been done in the first place. Texting while driving is distracted driving there is no doubt about that. It should be banned. As the public service announcement on TV says, your thumbs have other things to do while youre driving. But passing a law that sort of makes it illegal is not the answer. So legislators should start planning now to pass an additional law in the next session. Common sense didnt prevail this time around, but maybe in 2014 it will surface in Tallahassee. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY New texting ban is another farce Mothers sacrifice: learning to drive Bend over, grip your ankles, and no laughing READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Flynn Columnist Jim Clark Editor BY GLENN MOLLETTE Special to the Citizen Each of us must take responsibility for our health. We must become more active as a nation and more selective about what we eat. The average American is overweight and a large percentage of our nation is obese. Healthier citizens lead to lowering health care costs in America. Diabetes and heart disease are two of our leading causes of death. Walking every day and cutting the size of our food portions will help us to fight diabetes and heart disease. Activity plays a role in reducing some forms of cancer. A healthier America will be a more productive America. When you are obese you do not feel energized. When you are not energized you are not prone to be and do your best at your job. People who become unemployed and let themselves go physically normally do not feel energized to look for a job. An emphasis on being healthy with every community having access to safe walking, biking paths and trails would be a plus for our country. Health care insurance premiums should be reduced for every American who is trying to live a healthier lifestyle. Americans who keep their body mass index at 27 percent or below, exercise, abstain from smoking and drink only moderately should pay less in premiums. This will require a visit to the doctor once a year to certify the BMI but it will be worth it. If you are working to try to live a healthy lifestyle, you shouldnt have to pay for the health care insurance of your neighbor who eats and smokes like there is no tomorrow. These people are the ones who should have the Fitness, obesity and medical care in America higher premiums. If I drive at 100 mph when I am in the car then I am the one who should pay the higher car insurance, not my neighbor who drives 55 mph. Insurance companies should reward individuals for their successful efforts. For example if someones BMI is reduced PLEASESEEMOLLETTE PAGE26 Try your luck at the Hard Rock Caf on Friday, May 31.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Taking advice isnt always easy for selfassured Rams and Ewes who think they know whats best. But it wouldnt hurt to listen to what close colleagues have to say. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You know how to balance lifes practical aspects with the poetic. This gives you a special edge this week in both your professional endeavors and your personal life. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Focus on keeping a balance between your home-related activities and your workplace responsibilities. Be mindful of both without obsessing over one or the other. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A change in plans is likely as you discover more facts about a possible commitment. Continue to ask questions and, if youre not sure about the answers, demand proof. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Be careful not to let that Leonine pride keep you from seeking wise, experienced counsel before making an important decision. A family member once again seeks your help. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) That surge of Virgo energy drives you to take on more work assignments. Be careful you dont overdo it, or you might find yourself overdone: i.e., burned out. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your decision to be upfront with colleagues on a touchy matter causes some consternation at first. But in the end, your honesty wins their trust and admiration. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) As in the past, someone again wants to share a secret with you, knowing it will be safe. But do you really want to be this persons confidante? Think about it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) As one of natures straight shooters, you seek to correct misconceptions about a project. Do so, of course, but without giving away too much too soon. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Creative pursuits continue to be strong in the gifted Goats aspect. New friendships can come from sharing these experiences with likeminded art aficionados. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Resolve lingering grumblings over your way of doing things by keeping your mind open to suggestions while continuing to show how plans will work. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) The perceptive Piscean might find that changing course in midstream isnt as workable as it would seem. Explore this option carefully before making a decision. BORN THIS WEEK: Your willingness to share your love of lifes good things brings joy to many, including, of course, yourself. Saturday Breakfast is served from 8 to 10 a.m. Donation is $4.

Four key points every person needs to know: Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability. 80 percent of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke. Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke. Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient. For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-800-697-9721 or visit our website at www.lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required. Screenings identify potential cardiovascular conditions such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women. Many sites offer finger-stick blood tests to check for cholesterol and glucose. Packages start at $0. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. Life Line Screening was established in 1993, and has since become the nations leading provider of preventive screenings.

Spotlight on Excellence Each week we feature people who have had an interesting past; a promising future or who have contributed to the quality of life her at Cherrywood. This week we feature a relative newcomer to Cherrywood, Joseph Gignac who moved into our community just last October. Joe was born during the Great Depression in Portland, Maine; the second youngest of seven children. Times were difficult and after the break up of his parents when he was only five, he was put with his brothers into Saint Louis boarding school for boys. Joes father was an immigrant from Quebec, Canada and by trade a carpenter. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, he was able to find work in a ship building facility making liberty ships. Being back to work allowed him to purchase a home and bring all of his children, including Joe, back under one roof. Remembering his early childhood, Joe talks about going out and collecting pop bottles at the factories and plants instead of going to school. He and his buddies had a wagon that they would fill up and after cashing in the bottles, the money was brought home to buy milk; eggs or other staples. At 14, Joe got a job in a sardine packing facility for 35 cents per hour. He kept that job through high school and managed to play Junior Varsity football and run Track as well. Jokingly, Joe says he still loves sardines to this day; especially the ones packed in peanut oil. Just prior to graduation, the Korean War began. Joe, ever the patriot, went with several of his friends and joined the U.S. Air Force. Within days he was off to Sampson AFB in upstate New York for basic training. It was the beginning of what would be a very successful career. Leaving Sampson, Joe was transferred to Bergstorm AFB in Austin Texas for further training in Personnel Management. After a short tour of duty in Texas where Joe was also working in the recruiting office, he was reassigned to Scott AFB Illinois for Personnel and Career Guidance instruction. Upon completion of that training he was assigned to Limestone AFB, a SAC base in northern Maine. Joe reenlisted and was accepted for the USAF Security Service Language program. He went to Kelly AFB in San Antonio Texas for Russian pre-language school. He was then assigned to the 6970th Support Group in Suitland Maryland continuing in the Personnel field. While stationed in Suitland, Maryland, Joe happened into a coffee shop. He noticed a beautiful young girl sitting with her sister. Being a red blooded American male, Joe approached their table. He found out her name was Irene, and they made arrangements for a date later in the week. We can only assume the date went well because four months later, Joe and Irene were married at Saint Francis XavierFriday, May 10, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Church in Washington D.C. Irene traveled the world with Joe following him from one duty station to the other. During that time she and Joe had five children including Edward whom they jokingly call Eddie the Turk. Edward was born in Ankara, Turkey and didnt receive his citizenship papers until he was ten. Their other children are Helen, Danny, Nathan and Lois. As Joe progressed through his career he gained ever more responsibility and rank. So impressed was the Air Force with his abilities as a Section Chief and leader that they appointed him to the Inspector Generals Staff. For those of you without military experience the IG inspections are the foremost method of government control and monitoring of the armed services. It is the job of the IG to insure that all training is effective and up to date; all equipment assigned to the unit is functioning as it should be; all planes, vehicles and tools are being maintained and utilized correctly and effectively. Only top notch experts in their field attain a position on the IG staff. During his two year tour of duty with the IG, Joe traveled to Japan, Guam, Okinawa, the Philippines and many other bases around the world. He admits it was a tough tour because of the amount of time required and being away from home so much. In 1972, Joe was able to retire from the Air Force and then began his career with a company called Planning Research Corporation. It was with this organization that Joe was able to utilize all the skills and talents that he had developed over the years in the Air Force. After completing an Associate Degree in Production Management, Joe was assigned a key role with PRC as they received the contract to update and modernize all of the personnel records for the Department of the Air Force and Navy. The family was once again moved, this time to Washington, D.C. Following that project, an even more technical opportunity opened for Joe. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration had established the NASA Scientific and Technical Information Facility at Linthicum, Maryland. The mission of the facility was to collect and build a database of R & D reports gather from its participating partners all over the world. This database consolidated information gathered from space exploration. The database minimized costly duplicate research by NASA scientists and engineers. Joe remained on this project as supervisor for over 15 years maintaining and operating the facility as Deputy General Manager. When he retired, Joe and Irene were free to enjoy their family. They built a large cabin in West CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 Joseph Gignac SEE CHERRYWOOD PAGE25 Sunday, May 19 Country Sunday luncheonThe Friendship Fellowship Luncheon features fried chicken and side dishes provided by regular attendees.

The seminar will enhance attendees sensitivity and understanding of veterans and provide new interventions to better serve dying veterans and their families. Attention is placed on veteran generations now aging and most likely to be seen in end-of-life care (WWII, Korean War, Vietnam). In addition to individual interventions, the program also will look at military benefits and intersections with VA systems. Finally, the program explores the traditions and sensitivities of grieving families and resources that can assist them. The information will be useful to clinicians, administrators, and other staff working in hospice and palliative care, hospitals, long-term care and assisted living facilities. A local panel of experts will be available for discussion following the presentation. Continuing Education credits are available for a processing fee. To register for this workshop, call 352-854-5230.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISE Call 854-3986 ADVERTISING O ur next meeting will take place on Thursday, May 16, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. Last year the SPCA donated funds to the Marion County Sheriffs Office to sponsor a new dog needed for their K-9 unit. At this months meeting we finally get to meet Pyro and his partner Deputy Colton Sullivan, our guest speaker. We hope you come out to see them and hear about their wonderful partnership. Please give us a call at 352-362-0985 if you would like more information about our meetings or have any other questions for us. Dont forget to visit the SPCA table at the Farmers Market at Circle Square Commons on 80th Street in On Top of the World Communities on the first Thursday of every month. Open to the public, we sell used books at only 25 cents to a dollar and every penny goes to help the animals of Marion County. This is also a good way to stop by and ask questions about our organization. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) recently put out a reminder about common plants that are toxic to dogs, cats, and horses that we want to share with you. Please keep these plants in mind as you add to your garden for the spring and summer. These plants include: azaleas, begonias, bird of paradise, castor bean plant, chrysanthemums, hibiscus, and oleander. Lilies of all kinds are especially toxic to cats and can cause kidney damage. The ASPCA suggests that you tell your florist to not include any type of lily in an arrangement sent to someone who has a cat. Please call your veterinarian if your pet ingests one of these plants. Your vet can also let you know about other plants that are poisonous before you start gardening. Adoption NewsThe Marion County Animal Center would like your help in getting a wonderful older dog adopted. January, the smaller black Labrador retriever pictured here, was found by a Good Samaritan wandering around as a stray who brought her to the shelter. She has been there since January and thats how she was named, and now thats too long for such a sweet, 8-year-old girl to be in the shelter system. They absolutely love here there and want her to find her forever home pronto. Shes still active, friendly, and loving. Shes housetrained to perfection she wont even do her business in the kennel like most of the dogs, but waits till shes taken outside for her walk. She also knows how to sit and stay. As we discussed at length in last months column, there are so many benefits to adopting an older dog theyre calmer, often well housetrained, and dont require as much training as a puppy or adolescent. January is so wonderful that the Animal Center says that she would make a great addition to any family. Now they dont say that everyday about every dog, so it goes to show that she is indeed special. When you call about this beauty, please reference ID number A090256. Please dont delay calling 352-671-8700; shes already been there too long. January is available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of SPCA members will get to meet K-9 dog Paws & Claws Maria Devine calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St. The center is open Tuesday through Saturday and closed on Sunday and Monday. You can call for hours. The fun loving Labradoodle Mack from last months column still needs a home. Pet Network is working hard to find him an appropriate one. The best family for Mack has experience with larger dogs and has the patience to train and socialize him. He can be a great dog for the right person or family. Hes only three years old, and it would be a shame if he has to live the rest of his life in foster care. If you enjoy working with dogs to bring out the best in them, please call Mary at 352-528-0270 and she will fill you in on the details. Lets try to find this sweet deserving boy a new home. Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. Above is January, while at the right is Mack. Small dog found in Palm Cay This lively little terrier mix was found on April 28 in the back section of Palm Cay. He has no tags and no microchip. If you know where he belongs, please call the SPCA at 362-0985. If owner is not found, he will be available for adoption. If you would like him, let us know and we will call you if he becomes available.

The Church family cordially invites the surrounding communities to join them in the Official Dedication/Open House on Sunday, May 19, from 2 to 4 p.m. Tours and light refreshments will be available. The church organized in 1900 and built its first wooden structure beside County Road 323 in the midst of a bustling timber and turpentine town. In 1948, a growing congregation moved into a new, more modern masonry sanctuary at the same location. A fellowship hall, classrooms and finally portable buildings were added through the years to adequately accommodate the growing church. Pastor Keith Stewart has served as the church Shepherd for the past eight years. For more information, call the church office at 352528-4080, or visit our website at www.morristonbaptist.org.

A grand time was had by all and Joe looks back on it with fond memories. Unfortunately, just weeks after that cruise, Irene was diagnosed with cancer and passed away shortly there after. Joe speaks lovingly about her being The glue that held the family together. It is a role that he now proudly has assumed. In order to be close to his only surviving brother, Ray, in Zephyrhills, Joe did some research on line and other sources and found Cherrywood. Since that time he has become the Vice President of the Veterans Club; joined the mens pool league and the bowling league and takes part in many other activities including the sport he loves; golf. Besides his family, Joe has another important connection remaining in Maryland; Julie Nelia. They met at an American Legion Post five years ago and she has two sons and a granddaughter Kyla that shes crazy about. They plan a Caribbean cruise in December after Julia retires. Following that cruise, we are hoping to have another addition to the Cherrywood family. Joe has a demonstrated love of family; love of country and love for Cherrywood. His contribution to this community has been felt by all who know him. Joe will be playing the trumpet at our Memorial Day observance so be sure to thank him for his service.From your reporterIf you have any comments or suggestions concerning the Cherrywood section of the Citizen please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I am always pleased to hear from you, the reader, on any ways to improve this column.

Currently insurance is going up every year in America. It doesnt matter how healthy you are or how hard you try the health care insurance companies have been sticking it to us. There must be some reward of at least not raising the rates of Americans who practice healthy lifestyles. Poorer Americans struggle with unhealthy lifestyles. They eat more pizza and fast food because its cheaper. Its also unhealthy. Our country would save billions if we could have a healthier America. We must develop a healthy American tax relief act. Eliminate the payroll employee taxes for each American whose income falls into the poverty level. This tax would be eliminated based on a report from the county health clinic. The report would include blood work results like sugar level, cholesterol, HIV and other vital health information. The body mass index would be calculated and should be at least 27 percent or a number to be determined healthy for men and women. This report signed by a local health official is affixed to the income tax report filed each year to the IRS for the tax savings for the entire next year. This gives the poorer class in our country a tremendous financial incentive to get off the computer, become more active and lay off the soda and chips. Financially it will save our country billions. The effect of younger, poorer and even older Americans trying to become healthier will save our country billions in medical costs. Finally, its optional. No one has to try to be healthy if they do not want to. This is America. For those who will make an effort there will be a significant reward. For additional inspiration please see my book titled Fitness Is a Mind Game.Glenn Mollette is the author of American Issues and Fitness Is a Mind Game plus hundreds of articles, stories and other books.

OBITUARY Once a year I go to my cardiologist; todays the day. His office is on the second floor. If I make it up the stairs I figure Im good for another year. While recuperating in the waiting room I always hear some heart-rending stories. The heart of the matterA mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop. The mechanic shouted, Hey Doc, want to take a look at this? The cardiologist walked to where the mechanic was working. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I make $35,000 a year and you get the really big bucks when you and I are doing basically the same work? The cardiologist smiled, leaned over and whispered to the mechanic, Try doing it with the engine running.Cant buckThe doctor told a man needing a heart transplant that the only heart available was from a sheep. The man finally agreed and the doctor transplanted the sheep heart into the man. The man came in for a checkup several weeks after the operation. The doctor asked him How are you feeling? The man replied, Not baaaad! Real operation A cardiologist developed an operating procedure that would cut down the time that surgery would take and would reduce patient pain. When he presented it at a convention he was paid $50,000. The cardiologist did a few more presentations and decided to devote full time to the lecture series, so he hired a driver and purchased a limousine. One day, after hed been doing the lecture circuit for about 6 months, his driver said to him, This is completely unfair. What do you mean? the surgeon asked. Well, you get paid $50,000 every time you do this lecture and thats more than I get in a year, replied the driver. The surgeon said that its a very complicated procedure and that he is the only person that can give this lecture. Thats not true. I have seen you do it so many times that I know it by heart, replied the driver. Well if thats the case, Ill tell you what. You do this lecture and you can keep the $50,000 if you do it right. the surgeon retorted. The driver replied, Ok. Youre on. At the lecture hall the surgeon and the driver changed coats and the surgeon put on the drivers hat and sat in the back of the room. The driver nailed the presentation. Not only that, he also answered questions without any problems. Just when the driver thought he was done, an audience member asked a complex question that the driver couldnt answer. The driver said, I have done this lecture 287 times and I have never been asked such a simple question. Its so easy that I am going to let my driver answer it. Selective Hearing? Morris, an 86 year-old man, had his yearly appointment with his cardiologist. A few days later the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm. Later the doctor spoke to Morris and said, Youre really doing great, arent you? Morris replied, Just doing what you said, Doc: Get a hot mamma and be cheerful. The doctor said, I didnt say that. I said, Youve got a heart murmur. Be careful. Ping pong Eric was in the midst of a very competitive table tennis match when he accidentally caught a slammed ball in the mouth and swallowed it. Gasping for air, he was rushed to the local hospital where surgery was performed. When Eric awoke several hours later he looked up at the doctor and thanked him for saving his life. Then he looked down and saw about twelve sewn up incisions on his stomach. Good gosh! exclaimed the patient. Why did you make so many cuts?

Currently insurance is going up every year in America. It doesnt matter how healthy you are or how hard you try the health care insurance companies have been sticking it to us. There must be some reward of at least not raising the rates of Americans who practice healthy lifestyles. Poorer Americans struggle with unhealthy lifestyles. They eat more pizza and fast food because its cheaper. Its also unhealthy. Our country would save billions if we could have a healthier America. We must develop a healthy American tax relief act. Eliminate the payroll employee taxes for each American whose income falls into the poverty level. This tax would be eliminated based on a report from the county health clinic. The report would include blood work results like sugar level, cholesterol, HIV and other vital health information. The body mass index would be calculated and should be at least 27 percent or a number to be determined healthy for men and women. This report signed by a local health official is affixed to the income tax report filed each year to the IRS for the tax savings for the entire next year. This gives the poorer class in our country a tremendous financial incentive to get off the computer, become more active and lay off the soda and chips. Financially it will save our country billions. The effect of younger, poorer and even older Americans trying to become healthier will save our country billions in medical costs. Finally, its optional. No one has to try to be healthy if they do not want to. This is America. For those who will make an effort there will be a significant reward.

OBITUARY Once a year I go to my cardiologist; todays the day. His office is on the second floor. If I make it up the stairs I figure Im good for another year. While recuperating in the waiting room I always hear some heart-rending stories.The heart of the matterA mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop. The mechanic shouted, Hey Doc, want to take a look at this? The cardiologist walked to where the mechanic was working. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I make $35,000 a year and you get the really big bucks when you and I are doing basically the same work? The cardiologist smiled, leaned over and whispered to the mechanic, Try doing it with the engine running.Cant buckThe doctor told a man needing a heart transplant that the only heart available was from a sheep. The man finally agreed and the doctor transplanted the sheep heart into the man. The man came in for a checkup several weeks after the operation. The doctor asked him How are you feeling? The man replied, Not baaaad!Real operationA cardiologist developed an operating procedure that would cut down the time that surgery would take and would reduce patient pain. When he presented it at a convention he was paid $50,000. The cardiologist did a few more presentations and decided to devote full time to the lecture series, so he hired a driver and purchased a limousine. One day, after hed been doing the lecture circuit for about 6 months, his driver said to him, This is completely unfair. What do you mean? the surgeon asked. Well, you get paid $50,000 every time you do this lecture and thats more than I get in a year, replied the driver. The surgeon said that its a very complicated procedure and that he is the only person that can give this lecture. Thats not true. I have seen you do it so many times that I know it by heart, replied the driver. Well if thats the case, Ill tell you what. You do this lecture and you can keep the $50,000 if you do it right. the surgeon retorted. The driver replied, Ok. Youre on. At the lecture hall the surgeon and the driver changed coats and the surgeon put on the drivers hat and sat in the back of the room. The driver nailed the presentation. Not only that, he also answered questions without any problems. Just when the driver thought he was done, an audience member asked a complex question that the driver couldnt answer. The driver said, I have done this lecture 287 times and I have never been asked such a simple question. Its so easy that I am going to let my driver answer it.Selective Hearing?Morris, an 86 year-old man, had his yearly appointment with his cardiologist. A few days later the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm. Later the doctor spoke to Morris and said, Youre really doing great, arent you? Morris replied, Just doing what you said, Doc: Get a hot mamma and be cheerful. The doctor said, I didnt say that. I said, Youve got a heart murmur. Be careful.Ping pongEric was in the midst of a very competitive table tennis match when he accidentally caught a slammed ball in the mouth and swallowed it. Gasping for air, he was rushed to the local hospital where surgery was performed. When Eric awoke several hours later he looked up at the doctor and thanked him for saving his life. Then he looked down and saw about twelve sewn up incisions on his stomach. Good gosh! exclaimed the patient. Why did you make so many cuts? The doctor spread his palms and replied, Thats the way the ball bounces. SpecialistsAn attractive young woman was being shown around the ship by Tim, a young intern, who was explaining to her how he had gone through medical school on a Navy loan program. And what is your specialty now? asked the woman. Im a naval surgeon, Tim responded. My, oh, my, sighed the woman. Medicine is certainly getting specialized these days!

The space was well utilized because in addition to his children, Joe has 15 grandchildren and five great grandchildren with two more on the way. He also has three half sisters; Paula, Debbie and Linda who all live in Felch Michigan. Joe and Irene celebrated 50 years of marriage with a family cruise down the Potomac River. A grand time was had by all and Joe looks back on it with fond memories. Unfortunately, just weeks after that cruise, Irene was diagnosed with cancer and passed away shortly there after. Joe speaks lovingly about her being The glue that held the family together. It is a role that he now proudly has assumed. In order to be close to his only surviving brother, Ray, in Zephyrhills, Joe did some research on line and other sources and found Cherrywood. Since that time he has become the Vice President of the Veterans Club; joined the mens pool league and the bowling league and takes part in many other activities including the sport he loves; golf. Besides his family, Joe has another important connection remaining in Maryland; Julie Nelia. They met at an American Legion Post five years ago and she has two sons and a granddaughter Kyla that shes crazy about. They plan a Caribbean cruise in December after Julia retires. Following that cruise, we are hoping to have another addition to the Cherrywood family. Joe has a demonstrated love of family; love of country and love for Cherrywood. His contribution to this community has been felt by all who know him. Joe will be playing the trumpet at our Memorial Day observance so be sure to thank him for his service.From your reporterIf you have any comments or suggestions concerning the Cherrywood section of the Citizen please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVER TISING Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, May 16, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. Last year the SPCA donated funds to the Marion County Sheriffs Office to sponsor a new dog needed for their K-9 unit. At this months meeting we finally get to meet Pyro and his partner Deputy Colton Sullivan, our guest speaker. We hope you come out to see them and hear about their wonderful partnership. Please give us a call at 352-362-0985 if you would like more information about our meetings or have any other questions for us. Dont forget to visit the SPCA table at the Farmers Market at Circle Square Commons on 80th Street in On Top of the World Communities on the first Thursday of every month. Open to the public, we sell used books at only 25 cents to a dollar and every penny goes to help the animals of Marion County. This is also a good way to stop by and ask questions about our organization. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) recently put out a reminder about common plants that are toxic to dogs, cats, and horses that we want to share with you. Please keep these plants in mind as you add to your garden for the spring and summer. These plants include: azaleas, begonias, bird of paradise, castor bean plant, chrysanthemums, hibiscus, and oleander. Lilies of all kinds are especially toxic to cats and can cause kidney damage. The ASPCA suggests that you tell your florist to not include any type of lily in an arrangement sent to someone who has a cat. Please call your veterinarian if your pet ingests one of these plants. Your vet can also let you know about other plants that are poisonous before you start gardening. Adoption NewsThe Marion County Animal Center would like your help in getting a wonderful older dog adopted. January, the smaller black Labrador retriever pictured here, was found by a Good Samaritan wandering around as a stray who brought her to the shelter. She has been there since January and thats how she was named, and now thats too long for such a sweet, 8-year-old girl to be in the shelter system. They absolutely love here there and want her to find her forever home pronto. Shes still active, friendly, and loving. Shes housetrained to perfection she wont even do her business in the kennel like most of the dogs, but waits till shes taken outside for her walk. She also knows how to sit and stay. As we discussed at length in last months column, there are so many benefits to adopting an older dog theyre calmer, often well housetrained, and dont require as much training as a puppy or adolescent. January is so wonderful that the Animal Center says that she would make a great addition to any family. Now they dont say that everyday about every dog, so it goes to show that she is indeed special. When you call about this beauty, please reference ID number A090256. Please dont delay calling 352-671-8700; shes already been there too long. January is available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of SPCA members will get to meet K-9 dog Paws & Claws Maria Devine calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St. The center is open Tuesday through Saturday and closed on Sunday and Monday. You can call for hours. The fun loving Labradoodle Mack from last months column still needs a home. Pet Network is working hard to find him an appropriate one. The best family for Mack has experience with larger dogs and has the patience to train and socialize him. He can be a great dog for the right person or family. Hes only three years old, and it would be a shame if he has to live the rest of his life in foster care. If you enjoy working with dogs to bring out the best in them, please call Mary at 352-528-0270 and she will fill you in on the details. Lets try to find this sweet deserving boy a new home.Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. Above is January, while at the right is Mack. Small dog found in Palm CayThis lively little terrier mix was found on April 28 in the back section of Palm Cay. He has no tags and no microchip. If you know where he belongs, please call the SPCA at 362-0985. If owner is not found, he will be available for adoption. If you would like him, let us know and we will call you if he becomes available.

The Church family cordially invites the surrounding communities to join them in the Official Dedication/Open House on Sunday, May 19, from 2 to 4 p.m. Tours and light refreshments will be available. The church organized in 1900 and built its first wooden structure beside County Road 323 in the midst of a bustling timber and turpentine town. In 1948, a growing congregation moved into a new, more modern masonry sanctuary at the same location. A fellowship hall, classrooms and finally portable buildings were added through the years to adequately accommodate the growing church. Pastor Keith Stewart has served as the church Shepherd for the past eight years. For more information, call the church office at 352528-4080, or visit our website at www.morristonbaptist.org.

Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature people who have had an interesting past; a promising future or who have contributed to the quality of life her at Cherrywood. This week we feature a relative newcomer to Cherrywood, Joseph Gignac who moved into our community just last October. Joe was born during the Great Depression in Portland, Maine; the second youngest of seven children. Times were difficult and after the break up of his parents when he was only five, he was put with his brothers into Saint Louis boarding school for boys. Joes father was an immigrant from Quebec, Canada and by trade a carpenter. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, he was able to find work in a ship building facility making liberty ships. Being back to work allowed him to purchase a home and bring all of his children, including Joe, back under one roof. Remembering his early childhood, Joe talks about going out and collecting pop bottles at the factories and plants instead of going to school. He and his buddies had a wagon that they would fill up and after cashing in the bottles, the money was brought home to buy milk; eggs or other staples. At 14, Joe got a job in a sardine packing facility for 35 cents per hour. He kept that job through high school and managed to play Junior Varsity football and run Track as well. Jokingly, Joe says he still loves sardines to this day; especially the ones packed in peanut oil. Just prior to graduation, the Korean War began. Joe, ever the patriot, went with several of his friends and joined the U.S. Air Force. Within days he was off to Sampson AFB in upstate New York for basic training. It was the beginning of what would be a very successful career. Leaving Sampson, Joe was transferred to Bergstorm AFB in Austin Texas for further training in Personnel Management. After a short tour of duty in Texas where Joe was also working in the recruiting office, he was reassigned to Scott AFB Illinois for Personnel and Career Guidance instruction. Upon completion of that training he was assigned to Limestone AFB, a SAC base in northern Maine. Joe reenlisted and was accepted for the USAF Security Service Language program. He went to Kelly AFB in San Antonio Texas for Russian pre-language school. He was then assigned to the 6970th Support Group in Suitland Maryland continuing in the Personnel field. While stationed in Suitland, Maryland, Joe happened into a coffee shop. He noticed a beautiful young girl sitting with her sister. Being a red blooded American male, Joe approached their table. He found out her name was Irene, and they made arrangements for a date later in the week. We can only assume the date went well because four months later, Joe and Irene were married at Saint Francis XavierFriday, May 10, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Church in Washington D.C. Irene traveled the world with Joe following him from one duty station to the other. During that time she and Joe had five children including Edward whom they jokingly call Eddie the Turk. Edward was born in Ankara, Turkey and didnt receive his citizenship papers until he was ten. Their other children are Helen, Danny, Nathan and Lois. As Joe progressed through his career he gained ever more responsibility and rank. So impressed was the Air Force with his abilities as a Section Chief and leader that they appointed him to the Inspector Generals Staff. For those of you without military experience the IG inspections are the foremost method of government control and monitoring of the armed services. It is the job of the IG to insure that all training is effective and up to date; all equipment assigned to the unit is functioning as it should be; all planes, vehicles and tools are being maintained and utilized correctly and effectively. Only top notch experts in their field attain a position on the IG staff. During his two year tour of duty with the IG, Joe traveled to Japan, Guam, Okinawa, the Philippines and many other bases around the world. He admits it was a tough tour because of the amount of time required and being away from home so much. In 1972, Joe was able to retire from the Air Force and then began his career with a company called Planning Research Corporation. It was with this organization that Joe was able to utilize all the skills and talents that he had developed over the years in the Air Force. After completing an Associate Degree in Production Management, Joe was assigned a key role with PRC as they received the contract to update and modernize all of the personnel records for the Department of the Air Force and Navy. The family was once again moved, this time to Washington, D.C. Following that project, an even more technical opportunity opened for Joe. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration had established the NASA Scientific and Technical Information Facility at Linthicum, Maryland. The mission of the facility was to collect and build a database of R & D reports gather from its participating partners all over the world. This database consolidated information gathered from space exploration. The database minimized costly duplicate research by NASA scientists and engineers. Joe remained on this project as supervisor for over 15 years maintaining and operating the facility as Deputy General Manager. When he retired, Joe and Irene were free to enjoy their family. They built a large cabin in West CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 Joseph Gignac SEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE25 Sunday, May 19 Country Sunday luncheonThe Friendship Fellowship Luncheon features fried chicken and side dishes provided by regular attendees.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Taking advice isnt always easy for selfassured Rams and Ewes who think they know whats best. But it wouldnt hurt to listen to what close colleagues have to say. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You know how to balance lifes practical aspects with the poetic. This gives you a special edge this week in both your professional endeavors and your personal life. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Focus on keeping a balance between your home-related activities and your workplace responsibilities. Be mindful of both without obsessing over one or the other. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A change in plans is likely as you discover more facts about a possible commitment. Continue to ask questions and, if youre not sure about the answers, demand proof. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Be careful not to let that Leonine pride keep you from seeking wise, experienced counsel before making an important decision. A family member once again seeks your help. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) That surge of Virgo energy drives you to take on more work assignments. Be careful you dont overdo it, or you might find yourself overdone: i.e., burned out. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your decision to be upfront with colleagues on a touchy matter causes some consternation at first. But in the end, your honesty wins their trust and admiration. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) As in the past, someone again wants to share a secret with you, knowing it will be safe. But do you really want to be this persons confidante? Think about it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) As one of natures straight shooters, you seek to correct misconceptions about a project. Do so, of course, but without giving away too much too soon. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Creative pursuits continue to be strong in the gifted Goats aspect. New friendships can come from sharing these experiences with likeminded art aficionados. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Resolve lingering grumblings over your way of doing things by keeping your mind open to suggestions while continuing to show how plans will work. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) The perceptive Piscean might find that changing course in midstream isnt as workable as it would seem. Explore this option carefully before making a decision. BORN THIS WEEK: Your willingness to share your love of lifes good things brings joy to many, including, of course, yourself. Saturday Breakfast is served from 8 to 10 a.m. Donation is $4.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 10, 2013 When considering topics for this column, we were disinclined to offer an opinion on reinstatement of disciplinary paddling in the Marion County public schools. However, reconsideration raised thoughts of some disturbing characteristics of corporal punishment. (Coincidentally reinstatement means restoration to a previous position pun intended).Our personal experience with corporal punishment was mostly observational. When we entered public school in 1937, mom said to beware of Miss Vernon, a teacher who performed patrol duty with vigor, and a cane rattan in hand. The rattan was an attention getter for students coming down the up staircase or running in the corridor. A single swat behind a knee and a verbal reprimand were reminders that repetition of the observed offense or any other bad behavior could result in a couple of rattan strokes applied to a perpetrators buttocks usually performed in a classroom coat closet. A milder form of physical punishment was a ruler applied to student knuckles for talking in class, chewing gum, and other minor offenses. Memory suggests girls were more likely to suffer a tap of the twelve inch stick than boys. When Marion County discontinued paddling in 2010, the reason was that paddling is not as effective as it was when Charles Dickens was writing David Copperfield and other novels about widespread 19th century child abuse in schools and workplaces. Only 19 of our states still believe sparing the rod is less effective than spanking the student. Paradoxically, paddling too often or too enthusiastically at home could earn a night in jail and an explanation to a judge. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that spanking in schools is OK provided the spankee received his or her fourteenth amendment rights to due process and equal protection. Were unaware whether states which allow spanking send their principals to a constitutional law seminar, or just offer them a copy of Baker v. Owen (423 US 907) as an orientation to legal paddling. In states where corporal punishment by paddling is available, the practice gradually becomes a mish-mosh of permissions, exemptions, opt-outs, necessity of witnesses, whether there should be same sex paddlers, whether only boys should be paddled, and whether 16-18 year old students are too adult to be paddled. The safeguard in Marion Countys reinstated physical discipline is pre-signed parental permission to paddle and notice to the parent when the discipline is to be administered. It is not unreasonable to posit that good intentions of public education have contributed to widespread abdication of parental responsibilities. For anyone who hasnt heard or noticed, absence of parental responsibility has contributed significantly to the overflowing population of our prisons. The hidden downside of corporal punishment in public schools is the uncertain psychological effects it may have on teachers, students, and staff who are not involved and do not wish to be. The School Board had it right in 2010, but the current board couldnt leave well enough alone. The year was well, it was in the late 1940s, Im not sure exactly what year it was. I was just a little kid then, but I remember going out in the car with my dad and mom. We went to a vacant parking lot and, shock of shocks, my folks switched positions and mom got behind the wheel. She was learning to drive. My mother was raised in New York City, and took the subway, or walked, to get everywhere. Even after she got married, when my dad was shipped out to the ChinaBurma-Indian Theatre in World War II, she continued to live in the Bronx, where I was born, and got around on public transportation or her own two feet. But after we moved to New Jersey in 1946, well, public transportation didnt run next door, the grocery stores were quite a distance, and since dad was taking the train, then the ferry, to New York every day, she was more or less marooned at our house. So she learned to drive. I remember riding with her to pick dad up at the station she was a pretty good driver of our big gas guzzler (of course gas was only 15 cents a gallon then). Later I found out she was really very nervous about driving, but she felt it was necessary, especially with me about to start school. She had sacrificed her own comfort to make sure I stayed warm and dry while going to class. It was just one of the many sacrifices she made in her life for her child, and one of those little things that pops into my mind every time we get close to Mothers Day, which is this coming Sunday, May 12. For example, I thought, when I was little, my mother was psychic. Shed be working in the kitchen and I was in the living room sitting on the sofa, with my feet up on the couch. Get your feet down, came this voice from the kitchen. How did she do that? I thought. It took me years to realize that the mirror on the wall behind the piano was aimed so she could see the whole living room from the kitchen. My mother died in 1997 at the age of 82, and I hope I told her enough that I loved her and appreciated all that she did for me. Some of you are lucky. You still have your mothers around to call, visit, etc. You still have a chance to let them know what they meant in your life, and I doubt if theres a mother anywhere in the world who doesnt like hearing that. So as we get to Mothers Day 2013, take the time to call or visit your mother, if thats possible. In this day of e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, etc., its easy to type a note, just as it was easy in my day to send a card. But a personal conversation is much better, and you can convey feelings much better in a personto-person meeting. Whatever you do, dont forget mom this Sunday. If shes no longer around, you have your memories take time to reflect. And if shes still here, shell undoubtedly get a great feeling when that phone rings and youre on the other end. And to all the mothers out there, I hope you have a great day. On behalf of all of us, Happy Mothers Day to you.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Years ago, when the Florida Legislature, under pressure from the Feds, adopted a mandatory seat belt use law, they made it a secondary offense. In other words, police couldnt stop you for not using a seat belt. They had to stop you for something else before you could receive a seat belt citation. Eventually, someone realized how silly this was, so they made it a primary violation. Now if you drive down the road without your seat belt hooked up, you can be pulled over. Weve always been against the seat belt law. What a person does in their own car, if it affects no one else, shouldnt be law enforcements business. It should be personal preference. Now along comes the Legislature again, this time passing a bill banning texting while driving. This one were in favor of, because it does affect other drivers. If someone is going down the road concentrating on texting and not on the road, it could cause accidents and result in injuries to others. But, in its wisdom, the Legislature has, once again, passed a toothless law, making it a secondary offense. That means that if youre driving down the road texting, and not violating any other laws, the police cant stop you (although cynics say that theyll find something else wrong to stop you, anyway). Eventually, someone will realize that this, too, is silly, and the legislators will have to go through the process of passing the law all over again, something that should have been done in the first place. Texting while driving is distracted driving there is no doubt about that. It should be banned. As the public service announcement on TV says, your thumbs have other things to do while youre driving. But passing a law that sort of makes it illegal is not the answer. So legislators should start planning now to pass an additional law in the next session. Common sense didnt prevail this time around, but maybe in 2014 it will surface in Tallahassee. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY New texting ban is another farce Mothers sacrifice: learning to drive Bend over, grip your ankles, and no laughing READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Flynn Columnist Jim Clark Editor BY GLENN MOLLETTE Special to the CitizenEach of us must take responsibility for our health. We must become more active as a nation and more selective about what we eat. The average American is overweight and a large percentage of our nation is obese. Healthier citizens lead to lowering health care costs in America. Diabetes and heart disease are two of our leading causes of death. Walking every day and cutting the size of our food portions will help us to fight diabetes and heart disease. Activity plays a role in reducing some forms of cancer. A healthier America will be a more productive America. When you are obese you do not feel energized. When you are not energized you are not prone to be and do your best at your job. People who become unemployed and let themselves go physically normally do not feel energized to look for a job. An emphasis on being healthy with every community having access to safe walking, biking paths and trails would be a plus for our country. Health care insurance premiums should be reduced for every American who is trying to live a healthier lifestyle. Americans who keep their body mass index at 27 percent or below, exercise, abstain from smoking and drink only moderately should pay less in premiums. This will require a visit to the doctor once a year to certify the BMI but it will be worth it. If you are working to try to live a healthy lifestyle, you shouldnt have to pay for the health care insurance of your neighbor who eats and smokes like there is no tomorrow. These people are the ones who should have the Fitness, obesity and medical care in America higher premiums. If I drive at 100 mph when I am in the car then I am the one who should pay the higher car insurance, not my neighbor who drives 55 mph. Insurance companies should reward individuals for their successful efforts. For example if someones BMI is reduced PLEASESEEMOLLETTE, PAGE26 Try your luck at the Hard Rock Caf on Friday, May 31.

She first points out that to a rocket scientist humans are a problem and the most irritating piece of machinery that he or she will ever have to deal with. To that end, procedures, equipment, and supplies must be designed to best serve themwhich launches the weird science of preparing for space exploration. Theres the unglamorous problem of motion sickness that plagues many space travelers. Addressing it four physicians in 1996 conducted experiments on vomiting and what did they use for a vomitussimulating substance? Progresso vegetable soup. Roach quips, Judging from their Web site the Progresso people would be horrified if they knew. They have a fairly highbrow view of canned foods, even going so far as pairing wines with their product line. At NASA there are other myriad queasy problems to solve like what to do with all the urine that accumulates in the capsule. Scientists do find a solution through desalination, a process that turns the urine into a delicious drink, tasting something like Karo syrup, the author tells us. (But her husband is freaked out when she stores samples in their refrigerator.) Equally challenging are unanticipated problems such as the euphoria some space walkers experience that makes them want to stay outside the capsule. In one case it took crew members 25 minutes to coax the astronaut back inside. And what, scientists pondered, would be the effect on the body reclining for the long trip to Mars. To find out, they paid volunteers to lie flat in bed for a solid three months. The result was a troubling loss of bone mass. Still debunking spaceflight romance, Roach exposes NASAs untold sanitation woes by quoting Jim Lovell: The Gemini 7 mission was like spending two weeks in a latrine. Combing her extensive research for interesting tidbits she describes the psychological testing of Japanese astronauts that involves rapidly constructing origami cranes while under stress. In closing, she acknowledges the exorbitant cost of sending a human astronaut to Mars. Her response is that if the government would use such funds for curing cancer shed say scrap the Mars plan. But since that wont happen, she adds, lets join hands and say we can do this. Heres a book thats both entertaining and informative. Weird science of preparing for space exploration Bookmark Pat Wellington Be at the clubhouse on Wednesday, May 15 for the funniest fashion show youll ever experience. At 1 p.m., Rich Becotte will start the music for our models to begin their walk down the runway. The tunes are matched to the models outfits and that in itself should be a hoot. Fifteen contestants will show off their fashion styles in competition and the word styles is used very loosely in that sentence. With a budget of only $15 the models have limited funds to make up their own outfits which will be original; unique and in some cases totally absurd. Here is a list of those who will be competing on Wednesday; Loretta and Jerry Moscariello; Marion OHern; Bonnie Clark; Jenny Arturi; Joyce Stacer; Ann Bardock; Rich Hurley; Midge Lee; Holly and Dave Bragdon; Mick James; Jim Houghtaling; Bill Brotherhood and Geris own Lentz.

Fred OHern made some special Mint Juleps; everyone brought pot luck snacks and the hat contest was the best. Over 50 people joined in sharing the good eats that people brought to be shared. Everything from sandwiches to cakes; fruit and pies and relish trays made sure that no one went hungry before during or after the race. Our ladies outdid themselves with their artistic and creative talents. The hats were wide and colorful requiring some detailed needle work and imagination. Holly Bragdon took first place in the contest with Marie Brotherhood coming in second and Monica Becotte in third place. Dave Bragdon won the door prize and Wanda Huff won the 50/50 drawing to end out the prizes. A total of $63 was raised for the Ocala Equine Rescue.

We will remember our fallen heroes. Our service will begin with the presentation of the colors followed by the National Anthem. Additional honors will be rendered to our fallen with a wreath laying ceremony and the playing of taps. The Armed Forces Medley will pay tribute to those who served in each branch of service and guest speaker Steven Jacobs will be our keynote speaker. Mr. Jacobs is a Navy veteran who saw service in Operation Desert Storm; Operation Iraqi Freedom; Operation Enduring Freedom and Baltic Operations. Currently he is the head of Veterans Services Ocala. His experience and knowledge will be an interesting and significant contribution to our observance. This program is free to everyone who would like to attend.

Iced tea and lemonade will be provided but guests may bring their own beverages. Guests are asked to provide a dessert to pass if they are able.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com In growing up, one of the outstanding things in my relationship with my mother had to do with her memory. She could remember everything. All I had to do was ask dear old mom and she knew the answer. She knew everything. No matter the topic, she had an opinion about it, which truly amazed me as a young person. Before I went to school, my mother was my entire world. From the time I got up in the morning until she tucked me in bed at night, she was the master of my world. Whatever I could do, she was the one who allowed me to do it. Looking back, I can remember when my father got home from work in the evening he gave my mother a little break from looking after me and my brother and sister. If memory serves me correctly, my father watched us by lying on the couch snoring. I never could figure out how he could do that but it was his way of watching us and helping mom. As a young person, anything I wanted I had to requisition it from dear old mom. The thing that always amazed me was that she always had what I needed. I have often wondered how she could do that. But then, she was mom. My weekly allowance came from my mother. It took me a long time to realize the money for my allowance came from my father. I always believe mom had all the money there was. I remember coming home from the second grade with homework to do that just baffled me. All I had to do was ask mom and she could explain it to me like nobody else could. Mothers are like that. They know everything and remember everything. What my mother knew only my mother could know. It was as if she could read my mind. It was as if she had eyes in the back of her head. It was so bad that I could not get away with anything. Believe me; I tried very hard to get away with something. For some reason my mother knew what I was going to do days before I actually thought about doing it. I am not sure who is credited with designing the first memory board for computers, but I know who designed the memory board for people. I firmly believe that mothers were the first computer designed and wired by God. Why in the world do you think they call it the motherboard? It is no accident that they come up with this term. My mother had a tremendous memory. This is the difference between mothers and fathers. Mothers cannot forget anything and fathers cannot remember anything. Together they make an invincible team for raising children. It was not until I became a teenager that a little click developed between my mother and me. I began to realize that my memory did not always harmonize with hers on some issues. As I got older, the harmony was less and less. For example. My mother would tell me, You must be home by 10 oclock. At least, that is what she said she told me after the fact. When I came in at 11 oclock, she reminded me of what she told me. For the life of me, I could not remember her telling me to be home by 10 oclock. I told you to clean up your room. Searching my memory board, I could not find any indication that she told me this. I am not saying that she did not; I am just saying that our memories did not coincide on a variety of issues when I became a teenager. What struck me about my mother was she could remember conversation she had with me three years ago word for word. As I get older, I began to doubt the accuracy of her memory. The problem with that was, I had no memory of anything and so I had to rely upon her memory. Now that I am a parent, it is apparent to me that memory is a rather funny thing. I am not sure that my mother was in this category, but my memory is of such a nature that I can remember things that never took place. Not only that, I can describe it in detail. As a teenager I remember coming into the room and my mother sitting there looking out the window with a little smile on her face. What are you thinking about? She just looked at me, smiled and said, Oh, I was just remembering some things. Then she turned and looked out the window again and I left her to her memories. In celebrating Mothers Day, I cannot help but think of the many wonderful Oh, for a memory like dear old moms Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder memories each mother cherishes. Their children will always be children. No matter how old their children get, they will always be their little babies. Memory is a delightful thing and sometimes can be very selective. I am sure, when a mother engages in the fine art of memory, they are all good memories. Solomon was probably thinking about his mother when he wrote, Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all (Proverbs 31:28-29 KJV). You cannot put a price on a good memory.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or e-mail jamessnyder2@att.net.

Our bimonthly Blood Drive will be held on Wednesday, May 15; and the Bloodmobile will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Residents may sign up on the registration sheet hanging on the Activity Wall or drop by and see Pat in the Lobby. Remember, you can donate blood even if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, and you only need be cancer-free for one year. Ask if you are eligible to donate via ALYX, the state-of-the art automated blood collection system, allowing you to donate two units of red cells in just one visit. Your blood donation will benefit Floridas Blood Centers, which is the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. And there are benefits for you, too. After donating blood, the count of blood cells decreases in our body, which stimulates the bone marrow to produce new red blood cells in order to replenish the loss, and the new blood cells are fresh, cholesterol-free cells. That fact alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on May 15. We hope to see you there!Line Dancing is backPut on your dancing shoes and join us for some Line Dancing. Review some classic steps and learn some new ones, too. Line dancing is from 2 to 3 p.m. each Wednesday in the Lifestyle Center, and beginners are always welcome. Why not join in and have some fun!

Our bimonthly Blood Drive will be held on Wednesday, May 15; and the Bloodmobile will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Residents may sign up on the registration sheet hanging on the Activity Wall or drop by and see Pat in the Lobby. Remember, you can donate blood even if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, and you only need be cancer-free for one year. Ask if you are eligible to donate via ALYX, the state-of-the art automated blood collection system, allowing you to donate two units of red cells in just one visit. Your blood donation will benefit Floridas Blood Centers, which is the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. And there are benefits for you, too. After donating blood, the count of blood cells decreases in our body, which stimulates the bone marrow to produce new red blood cells in order to replenish the loss, and the new blood cells are fresh, cholesterol-free cells. That fact alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on May 15. We hope to see you there!Line Dancing is backPut on your dancing shoes and join us for some Line Dancing.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com In growing up, one of the outstanding things in my relationship with my mother had to do with her memory. She could remember everything. All I had to do was ask dear old mom and she knew the answer. She knew everything. No matter the topic, she had an opinion about it, which truly amazed me as a young person. Before I went to school, my mother was my entire world. From the time I got up in the morning until she tucked me in bed at night, she was the master of my world. Whatever I could do, she was the one who allowed me to do it. Looking back, I can remember when my father got home from work in the evening he gave my mother a little break from looking after me and my brother and sister. If memory serves me correctly, my father watched us by lying on the couch snoring. I never could figure out how he could do that but it was his way of watching us and helping mom. As a young person, anything I wanted I had to requisition it from dear old mom. The thing that always amazed me was that she always had what I needed. I have often wondered how she could do that. But then, she was mom. My weekly allowance came from my mother. It took me a long time to realize the money for my allowance came from my father. I always believe mom had all the money there was. I remember coming home from the second grade with homework to do that just baffled me. All I had to do was ask mom and she could explain it to me like nobody else could. Mothers are like that. They know everything and remember everything. What my mother knew only my mother could know. It was as if she could read my mind. It was as if she had eyes in the back of her head. It was so bad that I could not get away with anything. Believe me; I tried very hard to get away with something. For some reason my mother knew what I was going to do days before I actually thought about doing it. I am not sure who is credited with designing the first memory board for computers, but I know who designed the memory board for people. I firmly believe that mothers were the first computer designed and wired by God. Why in the world do you think they call it the motherboard? It is no accident that they come up with this term. My mother had a tremendous memory. This is the difference between mothers and fathers. Mothers cannot forget anything and fathers cannot remember anything. Together they make an invincible team for raising children. It was not until I became a teenager that a little click developed between my mother and me. I began to realize that my memory did not always harmonize with hers on some issues. As I got older, the harmony was less and less. For example. My mother would tell me, You must be home by 10 oclock. At least, that is what she said she told me after the fact. When I came in at 11 oclock, she reminded me of what she told me. For the life of me, I could not remember her telling me to be home by 10 oclock. I told you to clean up your room. Searching my memory board, I could not find any indication that she told me this. I am not saying that she did not; I am just saying that our memories did not coincide on a variety of issues when I became a teenager. What struck me about my mother was she could remember conversation she had with me three years ago word for word. As I get older, I began to doubt the accuracy of her memory. The problem with that was, I had no memory of anything and so I had to rely upon her memory. Now that I am a parent, it is apparent to me that memory is a rather funny thing. I am not sure that my mother was in this category, but my memory is of such a nature that I can remember things that never took place. Not only that, I can describe it in detail. As a teenager I remember coming into the room and my mother sitting there looking out the window with a little smile on her face. What are you thinking about? She just looked at me, smiled and said, Oh, I was just remembering some things. Then she turned and looked out the window again and I left her to her memories. In celebrating Mothers Day, I cannot help but think of the many wonderful Oh, for a memory like dear old moms Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder memories each mother cherishes. Their children will always be children. No matter how old their children get, they will always be their little babies. Memory is a delightful thing and sometimes can be very selective. I am sure, when a mother engages in the fine art of memory, they are all good memories. Solomon was probably thinking about his mother when he wrote, Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all (Proverbs 31:28-29 KJV). You cannot put a price on a good memory.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or e-mail jamessnyder2@att.net.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com CALL TOM OR SUSIE AT 854-3986To place your food ad in this section!Color RED isfree! 10~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com PACKING FOR MARS By Mary Roach In Packing for Mars, science writer Mary Roach debunks the notion that an astronauts life is glamorous, often in highly amusing ways. She first points out that to a rocket scientist humans are a problem and the most irritating piece of machinery that he or she will ever have to deal with. To that end, procedures, equipment, and supplies must be designed to best serve themwhich launches the weird science of preparing for space exploration. Theres the unglamorous problem of motion sickness that plagues many space travelers. Addressing it four physicians in 1996 conducted experiments on vomiting and what did they use for a vomitussimulating substance? Progresso vegetable soup. Roach quips, Judging from their Web site the Progresso people would be horrified if they knew. They have a fairly highbrow view of canned foods, even going so far as pairing wines with their product line. At NASA there are other myriad queasy problems to solve like what to do with all the urine that accumulates in the capsule. Scientists do find a solution through desalination, a process that turns the urine into a delicious drink, tasting something like Karo syrup, the author tells us. (But her husband is freaked out when she stores samples in their refrigerator.) Equally challenging are unanticipated problems such as the euphoria some space walkers experience that makes them want to stay outside the capsule. In one case it took crew members 25 minutes to coax the astronaut back inside. And what, scientists pondered, would be the effect on the body reclining for the long trip to Mars. To find out, they paid volunteers to lie flat in bed for a solid three months. The result was a troubling loss of bone mass. Still debunking spaceflight romance, Roach exposes NASAs untold sanitation woes by quoting Jim Lovell: The Gemini 7 mission was like spending two weeks in a latrine. Combing her extensive research for interesting tidbits she describes the psychological testing of Japanese astronauts that involves rapidly constructing origami cranes while under stress. In closing, she acknowledges the exorbitant cost of sending a human astronaut to Mars. Her response is that if the government would use such funds for curing cancer shed say scrap the Mars plan. But since that wont happen, she adds, lets join hands and say we can do this. Heres a book thats both entertaining and informative. Weird science of preparing for space exploration Bookmark Pat Wellington Be at the clubhouse on Wednesday, May 15 for the funniest fashion show youll ever experience. At 1 p.m., Rich Becotte will start the music for our models to begin their walk down the runway. The tunes are matched to the models outfits and that in itself should be a hoot. Fifteen contestants will show off their fashion styles in competition and the word styles is used very loosely in that sentence. With a budget of only $15 the models have limited funds to make up their own outfits which will be original; unique and in some cases totally absurd. Here is a list of those who will be competing on Wednesday; Loretta and Jerry Moscariello; Marion OHern; Bonnie Clark; Jenny Arturi; Joyce Stacer; Ann Bardock; Rich Hurley; Midge Lee; Holly and Dave Bragdon; Mick James; Jim Houghtaling; Bill Brotherhood and Geris own Lentz.

Fred OHern made some special Mint Juleps; everyone brought pot luck snacks and the hat contest was the best. Over 50 people joined in sharing the good eats that people brought to be shared. Everything from sandwiches to cakes; fruit and pies and relish trays made sure that no one went hungry before during or after the race. Our ladies outdid themselves with their artistic and creative talents. The hats were wide and colorful requiring some detailed needle work and imagination. Holly Bragdon took first place in the contest with Marie Brotherhood coming in second and Monica Becotte in third place. Dave Bragdon won the door prize and Wanda Huff won the 50/50 drawing to end out the prizes. A total of $63 was raised for the Ocala Equine Rescue.

We will remember our fallen heroes. Our service will begin with the presentation of the colors followed by the National Anthem. Additional honors will be rendered to our fallen with a wreath laying ceremony and the playing of taps. The Armed Forces Medley will pay tribute to those who served in each branch of service and guest speaker Steven Jacobs will be our keynote speaker. Mr. Jacobs is a Navy veteran who saw service in Operation Desert Storm; Operation Iraqi Freedom; Operation Enduring Freedom and Baltic Operations. Currently he is the head of Veterans Services Ocala. His experience and knowledge will be an interesting and significant contribution to our observance. This program is free to everyone who would like to attend. Immediately following our service, a luncheon of hot dogs and hamburgers; beans and Cole slaw and trimmings will take place behind the clubhouse. The cost of tickets for this picnic is $7 each. Iced tea and lemonade will be provided but guests may bring their own beverages. Guests are asked to provide a dessert to pass if they are able.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 10, 2013 When considering topics for this column, we were disinclined to offer an opinion on reinstatement of disciplinary paddling in the Marion County public schools. However, reconsideration raised thoughts of some disturbing characteristics of corporal punishment. (Coincidentally reinstatement means restoration to a previous position pun intended).Our personal experience with corporal punishment was mostly observational. When we entered public school in 1937, mom said to beware of Miss Vernon, a teacher who performed patrol duty with vigor, and a cane rattan in hand. The rattan was an attention getter for students coming down the up staircase or running in the corridor. A single swat behind a knee and a verbal reprimand were reminders that repetition of the observed offense or any other bad behavior could result in a couple of rattan strokes applied to a perpetrators buttocks usually performed in a classroom coat closet. A milder form of physical punishment was a ruler applied to student knuckles for talking in class, chewing gum, and other minor offenses. Memory suggests girls were more likely to suffer a tap of the twelve inch stick than boys. When Marion County discontinued paddling in 2010, the reason was that paddling is not as effective as it was when Charles Dickens was writing David Copperfield and other novels about widespread 19th century child abuse in schools and workplaces. Only 19 of our states still believe sparing the rod is less effective than spanking the student. Paradoxically, paddling too often or too enthusiastically at home could earn a night in jail and an explanation to a judge. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that spanking in schools is OK provided the spankee received his or her fourteenth amendment rights to due process and equal protection. Were unaware whether states which allow spanking send their principals to a constitutional law seminar, or just offer them a copy of Baker v. Owen (423 US 907) as an orientation to legal paddling. In states where corporal punishment by paddling is available, the practice gradually becomes a mish-mosh of permissions, exemptions, opt-outs, necessity of witnesses, whether there should be same sex paddlers, whether only boys should be paddled, and whether 16-18 year old students are too adult to be paddled. The safeguard in Marion Countys reinstated physical discipline is pre-signed parental permission to paddle and notice to the parent when the discipline is to be administered. It is not unreasonable to posit that good intentions of public education have contributed to widespread abdication of parental responsibilities. For anyone who hasnt heard or noticed, absence of parental responsibility has contributed significantly to the overflowing population of our prisons. The hidden downside of corporal punishment in public schools is the uncertain psychological effects it may have on teachers, students, and staff who are not involved and do not wish to be. The School Board had it right in 2010, but the current board couldnt leave well enough alone. The year was well, it was in the late 1940s, Im not sure exactly what year it was. I was just a little kid then, but I remember going out in the car with my dad and mom. We went to a vacant parking lot and, shock of shocks, my folks switched positions and mom got behind the wheel. She was learning to drive. My mother was raised in New York City, and took the subway, or walked, to get everywhere. Even after she got married, when my dad was shipped out to the ChinaBurma-Indian Theatre in World War II, she continued to live in the Bronx, where I was born, and got around on public transportation or her own two feet. But after we moved to New Jersey in 1946, well, public transportation didnt run next door, the grocery stores were quite a distance, and since dad was taking the train, then the ferry, to New York every day, she was more or less marooned at our house. So she learned to drive. I remember riding with her to pick dad up at the station she was a pretty good driver of our big gas guzzler (of course gas was only 15 cents a gallon then). Later I found out she was really very nervous about driving, but she felt it was necessary, especially with me about to start school. She had sacrificed her own comfort to make sure I stayed warm and dry while going to class. It was just one of the many sacrifices she made in her life for her child, and one of those little things that pops into my mind every time we get close to Mothers Day, which is this coming Sunday, May 12. For example, I thought, when I was little, my mother was psychic. Shed be working in the kitchen and I was in the living room sitting on the sofa, with my feet up on the couch. Get your feet down, came this voice from the kitchen. How did she do that? I thought. It took me years to realize that the mirror on the wall behind the piano was aimed so she could see the whole living room from the kitchen. My mother died in 1997 at the age of 82, and I hope I told her enough that I loved her and appreciated all that she did for me. Some of you are lucky. You still have your mothers around to call, visit, etc. You still have a chance to let them know what they meant in your life, and I doubt if theres a mother anywhere in the world who doesnt like hearing that. So as we get to Mothers Day 2013, take the time to call or visit your mother, if thats possible. In this day of e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, etc., its easy to type a note, just as it was easy in my day to send a card. But a personal conversation is much better, and you can convey feelings much better in a personto-person meeting. Whatever you do, dont forget mom this Sunday. If shes no longer around, you have your memories take time to reflect. And if shes still here, shell undoubtedly get a great feeling when that phone rings and youre on the other end. And to all the mothers out there, I hope you have a great day. On behalf of all of us, Happy Mothers Day to you.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Years ago, when the Florida Legislature, under pressure from the Feds, adopted a mandatory seat belt use law, they made it a secondary offense. In other words, police couldnt stop you for not using a seat belt. They had to stop you for something else before you could receive a seat belt citation. Eventually, someone realized how silly this was, so they made it a primary violation. Now if you drive down the road without your seat belt hooked up, you can be pulled over. Weve always been against the seat belt law. What a person does in their own car, if it affects no one else, shouldnt be law enforcements business. It should be personal preference. Now along comes the Legislature again, this time passing a bill banning texting while driving. This one were in favor of, because it does affect other drivers. If someone is going down the road concentrating on texting and not on the road, it could cause accidents and result in injuries to others. But, in its wisdom, the Legislature has, once again, passed a toothless law, making it a secondary offense. That means that if youre driving down the road texting, and not violating any other laws, the police cant stop you (although cynics say that theyll find something else wrong to stop you, anyway). Eventually, someone will realize that this, too, is silly, and the legislators will have to go through the process of passing the law all over again, something that should have been done in the first place. Texting while driving is distracted driving there is no doubt about that. It should be banned. As the public service announcement on TV says, your thumbs have other things to do while youre driving. But passing a law that sort of makes it illegal is not the answer. So legislators should start planning now to pass an additional law in the next session. Common sense didnt prevail this time around, but maybe in 2014 it will surface in Tallahassee. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY New texting ban is another farce Mothers sacrifice: learning to drive Bend over, grip your ankles, and no laughing READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Flynn Columnist Jim Clark Editor BY GLENN MOLLETTE Special to the CitizenEach of us must take responsibility for our health. We must become more active as a nation and more selective about what we eat. The average American is overweight and a large percentage of our nation is obese. Healthier citizens lead to lowering health care costs in America. Diabetes and heart disease are two of our leading causes of death. Walking every day and cutting the size of our food portions will help us to fight diabetes and heart disease. Activity plays a role in reducing some forms of cancer. A healthier America will be a more productive America. When you are obese you do not feel energized. When you are not energized you are not prone to be and do your best at your job. People who become unemployed and let themselves go physically normally do not feel energized to look for a job. An emphasis on being healthy with every community having access to safe walking, biking paths and trails would be a plus for our country. Health care insurance premiums should be reduced for every American who is trying to live a healthier lifestyle. Americans who keep their body mass index at 27 percent or below, exercise, abstain from smoking and drink only moderately should pay less in premiums. This will require a visit to the doctor once a year to certify the BMI but it will be worth it. If you are working to try to live a healthy lifestyle, you shouldnt have to pay for the health care insurance of your neighbor who eats and smokes like there is no tomorrow. These people are the ones who should have the Fitness, obesity and medical care in America higher premiums. If I drive at 100 mph when I am in the car then I am the one who should pay the higher car insurance, not my neighbor who drives 55 mph. Insurance companies should reward individuals for their successful efforts. For example if someones BMI is reduced PLEASESEEMOLLETTE, PAGE26 Try your luck at the Hard Rock Caf on Friday, May 31.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Taking advice isnt always easy for selfassured Rams and Ewes who think they know whats best. But it wouldnt hurt to listen to what close colleagues have to say. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You know how to balance lifes practical aspects with the poetic. This gives you a special edge this week in both your professional endeavors and your personal life. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Focus on keeping a balance between your home-related activities and your workplace responsibilities. Be mindful of both without obsessing over one or the other. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A change in plans is likely as you discover more facts about a possible commitment. Continue to ask questions and, if youre not sure about the answers, demand proof. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Be careful not to let that Leonine pride keep you from seeking wise, experienced counsel before making an important decision. A family member once again seeks your help. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) That surge of Virgo energy drives you to take on more work assignments. Be careful you dont overdo it, or you might find yourself overdone: i.e., burned out. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your decision to be upfront with colleagues on a touchy matter causes some consternation at first. But in the end, your honesty wins their trust and admiration.

Upcoming activities at West Marion Moose Lodge Residents living in and around the Ocala community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. Berean Baptist Church will host Life Line Screening on May 13. The site is at 4800 S.W. 20th St. in Ocala. There may be a charge for the screening. Four key points every person needs to know: Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability. 80 percent of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke. Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke. Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient. For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-800-697-9721 or visit our website at www.lifelinescreening.com. Pre-registration is required. Screenings identify potential cardiovascular conditions such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women. Many sites offer finger-stick blood tests to check for cholesterol and glucose. Packages start at $0. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. Life Line Screening was established in 1993, and has since become the nations leading provider of preventive screenings.

Spotlight on ExcellenceEach week we feature people who have had an interesting past; a promising future or who have contributed to the quality of life her at Cherrywood. This week we feature a relative newcomer to Cherrywood, Joseph Gignac who moved into our community just last October. Joe was born during the Great Depression in Portland, Maine; the second youngest of seven children. Times were difficult and after the break up of his parents when he was only five, he was put with his brothers into Saint Louis boarding school for boys. Joes father was an immigrant from Quebec, Canada and by trade a carpenter. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, he was able to find work in a ship building facility making liberty ships. Being back to work allowed him to purchase a home and bring all of his children, including Joe, back under one roof. Remembering his early childhood, Joe talks about going out and collecting pop bottles at the factories and plants instead of going to school. He and his buddies had a wagon that they would fill up and after cashing in the bottles, the money was brought home to buy milk; eggs or other staples. At 14, Joe got a job in a sardine packing facility for 35 cents per hour. He kept that job through high school and managed to play Junior Varsity football and run Track as well. Jokingly, Joe says he still loves sardines to this day; especially the ones packed in peanut oil. Just prior to graduation, the Korean War began. Joe, ever the patriot, went with several of his friends and joined the U.S. Air Force. Within days he was off to Sampson AFB in upstate New York for basic training. It was the beginning of what would be a very successful career. Leaving Sampson, Joe was transferred to Bergstorm AFB in Austin Texas for further training in Personnel Management. After a short tour of duty in Texas where Joe was also working in the recruiting office, he was reassigned to Scott AFB Illinois for Personnel and Career Guidance instruction. Upon completion of that training he was assigned to Limestone AFB, a SAC base in northern Maine. Joe reenlisted and was accepted for the USAF Security Service Language program. He went to Kelly AFB in San Antonio Texas for Russian pre-language school. He was then assigned to the 6970th Support Group in Suitland Maryland continuing in the Personnel field. While stationed in Suitland, Maryland, Joe happened into a coffee shop. He noticed a beautiful young girl sitting with her sister. Being a red blooded American male, Joe approached their table. He found out her name was Irene, and they made arrangements for a date later in the week. We can only assume the date went well because four months later, Joe and Irene were married at Saint Francis XavierFriday, May 10, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Church in Washington D.C. Irene traveled the world with Joe following him from one duty station to the other. During that time she and Joe had five children including Edward whom they jokingly call Eddie the Turk. Edward was born in Ankara, Turkey and didnt receive his citizenship papers until he was ten. Their other children are Helen, Danny, Nathan and Lois. As Joe progressed through his career he gained ever more responsibility and rank. So impressed was the Air Force with his abilities as a Section Chief and leader that they appointed him to the Inspector Generals Staff. For those of you without military experience the IG inspections are the foremost method of government control and monitoring of the armed services. It is the job of the IG to insure that all training is effective and up to date; all equipment assigned to the unit is functioning as it should be; all planes, vehicles and tools are being maintained and utilized correctly and effectively. Only top notch experts in their field attain a position on the IG staff. During his two year tour of duty with the IG, Joe traveled to Japan, Guam, Okinawa, the Philippines and many other bases around the world. He admits it was a tough tour because of the amount of time required and being away from home so much. In 1972, Joe was able to retire from the Air Force and then began his career with a company called Planning Research Corporation. It was with this organization that Joe was able to utilize all the skills and talents that he had developed over the years in the Air Force. After completing an Associate Degree in Production Management, Joe was assigned a key role with PRC as they received the contract to update and modernize all of the personnel records for the Department of the Air Force and Navy. The family was once again moved, this time to Washington, D.C. Following that project, an even more technical opportunity opened for Joe. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration had established the NASA Scientific and Technical Information Facility at Linthicum, Maryland. The mission of the facility was to collect and build a database of R & D reports gather from its participating partners all over the world. This database consolidated information gathered from space exploration. The database minimized costly duplicate research by NASA scientists and engineers. Joe remained on this project as supervisor for over 15 years maintaining and operating the facility as Deputy General Manager. When he retired, Joe and Irene were free to enjoy their family. They built a large cabin in West CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 Joseph Gignac SEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE25 Sunday, May 19 Country Sunday luncheonThe Friendship Fellowship Luncheon features fried chicken and side dishes provided by regular attendees.

The seminar will enhance attendees sensitivity and understanding of veterans and provide new interventions to better serve dying veterans and their families. Attention is placed on veteran generations now aging and most likely to be seen in end-of-life care (WWII, Korean War, Vietnam). In addition to individual interventions, the program also will look at military benefits and intersections with VA systems. Finally, the program explores the traditions and sensitivities of grieving families and resources that can assist them. The information will be useful to clinicians, administrators, and other staff working in hospice and palliative care, hospitals, long-term care and assisted living facilities. A local panel of experts will be available for discussion following the presentation. Continuing Education credits are available for a processing fee.

Friday, May 10, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, May 10, 2013 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVER TISING Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, May 16, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. Last year the SPCA donated funds to the Marion County Sheriffs Office to sponsor a new dog needed for their K-9 unit. At this months meeting we finally get to meet Pyro and his partner Deputy Colton Sullivan, our guest speaker. We hope you come out to see them and hear about their wonderful partnership. Please give us a call at 352-362-0985 if you would like more information about our meetings or have any other questions for us. Dont forget to visit the SPCA table at the Farmers Market at Circle Square Commons on 80th Street in On Top of the World Communities on the first Thursday of every month. Open to the public, we sell used books at only 25 cents to a dollar and every penny goes to help the animals of Marion County. This is also a good way to stop by and ask questions about our organization. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) recently put out a reminder about common plants that are toxic to dogs, cats, and horses that we want to share with you. Please keep these plants in mind as you add to your garden for the spring and summer. These plants include: azaleas, begonias, bird of paradise, castor bean plant, chrysanthemums, hibiscus, and oleander. Lilies of all kinds are especially toxic to cats and can cause kidney damage. The ASPCA suggests that you tell your florist to not include any type of lily in an arrangement sent to someone who has a cat. Please call your veterinarian if your pet ingests one of these plants. Your vet can also let you know about other plants that are poisonous before you start gardening. Adoption NewsThe Marion County Animal Center would like your help in getting a wonderful older dog adopted. January, the smaller black Labrador retriever pictured here, was found by a Good Samaritan wandering around as a stray who brought her to the shelter. She has been there since January and thats how she was named, and now thats too long for such a sweet, 8-year-old girl to be in the shelter system. They absolutely love here there and want her to find her forever home pronto. Shes still active, friendly, and loving. Shes housetrained to perfection she wont even do her business in the kennel like most of the dogs, but waits till shes taken outside for her walk. She also knows how to sit and stay. As we discussed at length in last months column, there are so many benefits to adopting an older dog theyre calmer, often well housetrained, and dont require as much training as a puppy or adolescent. January is so wonderful that the Animal Center says that she would make a great addition to any family. Now they dont say that everyday about every dog, so it goes to show that she is indeed special. When you call about this beauty, please reference ID number A090256. Please dont delay calling 352-671-8700; shes already been there too long. January is available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of SPCA members will get to meet K-9 dog Paws & Claws Maria Devine calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St. The center is open Tuesday through Saturday and closed on Sunday and Monday. You can call for hours. The fun loving Labradoodle Mack from last months column still needs a home. Pet Network is working hard to find him an appropriate one. The best family for Mack has experience with larger dogs and has the patience to train and socialize him. He can be a great dog for the right person or family. Hes only three years old, and it would be a shame if he has to live the rest of his life in foster care. If you enjoy working with dogs to bring out the best in them, please call Mary at 352-528-0270 and she will fill you in on the details. Lets try to find this sweet deserving boy a new home.Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. Above is January, while at the right is Mack. Small dog found in Palm CayThis lively little terrier mix was found on April 28 in the back section of Palm Cay. He has no tags and no microchip. If you know where he belongs, please call the SPCA at 362-0985. If owner is not found, he will be available for adoption. If you would like him, let us know and we will call you if he becomes available. Saturday, May 18 Civic Theatre backstage tourDo you ever attend a show at Ocala Civic Theatre and wonder, How do they do that??? We get a lot of questions (and much-appreciated compliments) about how we work our magic to create the fabulous sets, costumes, and props you see at each production. So were inviting you to an Open House and Backstage Tour on Saturday, May 18, from 9 to 11 a.m., to show you all (well, most of) our secrets! Our guided tour will take you behind the scenes to explore the wonderful world of backstage. Join our staff and volunteers as they share a glimpse of how we bring bygone eras to life, create authentic settings, and spin fantasy into reality. In the scene shop, youll see examples of set construction wizardry and learn about sound and lighting tricks, and our master craftsmen will demonstrate their clever illusions behind our artfully detailed props. In the costume shop, youll be amazed at the thousands of beautiful costumes we have in storage.

The space was well utilized because in addition to his children, Joe has 15 grandchildren and five great grandchildren with two more on the way. He also has three half sisters; Paula, Debbie and Linda who all live in Felch Michigan. Joe and Irene celebrated 50 years of marriage with a family cruise down the Potomac River. A grand time was had by all and Joe looks back on it with fond memories. Unfortunately, just weeks after that cruise, Irene was diagnosed with cancer and passed away shortly there after. Joe speaks lovingly about her being The glue that held the family together. It is a role that he now proudly has assumed. In order to be close to his only surviving brother, Ray, in Zephyrhills, Joe did some research on line and other sources and found Cherrywood. Since that time he has become the Vice President of the Veterans Club; joined the mens pool league and the bowling league and takes part in many other activities including the sport he loves; golf. Besides his family, Joe has another important connection remaining in Maryland; Julie Nelia. They met at an American Legion Post five years ago and she has two sons and a granddaughter Kyla that shes crazy about. They plan a Caribbean cruise in December after Julia retires. Following that cruise, we are hoping to have another addition to the Cherrywood family. Joe has a demonstrated love of family; love of country and love for Cherrywood. His contribution to this community has been felt by all who know him. Joe will be playing the trumpet at our Memorial Day observance so be sure to thank him for his service.From your reporterIf you have any comments or suggestions concerning the Cherrywood section of the Citizen please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

Currently insurance is going up every year in America. It doesnt matter how healthy you are or how hard you try the health care insurance companies have been sticking it to us. There must be some reward of at least not raising the rates of Americans who practice healthy lifestyles. Poorer Americans struggle with unhealthy lifestyles. They eat more pizza and fast food because its cheaper. Its also unhealthy. Our country would save billions if we could have a healthier America. We must develop a healthy American tax relief act. Eliminate the payroll employee taxes for each American whose income falls into the poverty level. This tax would be eliminated based on a report from the county health clinic. The report would include blood work results like sugar level, cholesterol, HIV and other vital health information. The body mass index would be calculated and should be at least 27 percent or a number to be determined healthy for men and women. This report signed by a local health official is affixed to the income tax report filed each year to the IRS for the tax savings for the entire next year. This gives the poorer class in our country a tremendous financial incentive to get off the computer, become more active and lay off the soda and chips. Financially it will save our country billions. The effect of younger, poorer and even older Americans trying to become healthier will save our country billions in medical costs. Finally, its optional. No one has to try to be healthy if they do not want to. This is America. For those who will make an effort there will be a significant reward.

OBITUARY Once a year I go to my cardiologist; todays the day. His office is on the second floor. If I make it up the stairs I figure Im good for another year. While recuperating in the waiting room I always hear some heart-rending stories.The heart of the matterA mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop. The mechanic shouted, Hey Doc, want to take a look at this? The cardiologist walked to where the mechanic was working. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I make $35,000 a year and you get the really big bucks when you and I are doing basically the same work? The cardiologist smiled, leaned over and whispered to the mechanic, Try doing it with the engine running.Cant buckThe doctor told a man needing a heart transplant that the only heart available was from a sheep. The man finally agreed and the doctor transplanted the sheep heart into the man. The man came in for a checkup several weeks after the operation. The doctor asked him How are you feeling? The man replied, Not baaaad!Real operationA cardiologist developed an operating procedure that would cut down the time that surgery would take and would reduce patient pain. When he presented it at a convention he was paid $50,000. The cardiologist did a few more presentations and decided to devote full time to the lecture series, so he hired a driver and purchased a limousine. One day, after hed been doing the lecture circuit for about 6 months, his driver said to him, This is completely unfair. What do you mean? the surgeon asked. Well, you get paid $50,000 every time you do this lecture and thats more than I get in a year, replied the driver. The surgeon said that its a very complicated procedure and that he is the only person that can give this lecture. Thats not true. I have seen you do it so many times that I know it by heart, replied the driver. Well if thats the case, Ill tell you what. You do this lecture and you can keep the $50,000 if you do it right. the surgeon retorted. The driver replied, Ok. Youre on. At the lecture hall the surgeon and the driver changed coats and the surgeon put on the drivers hat and sat in the back of the room. The driver nailed the presentation. Not only that, he also answered questions without any problems. Just when the driver thought he was done, an audience member asked a complex question that the driver couldnt answer. The driver said, I have done this lecture 287 times and I have never been asked such a simple question. Its so easy that I am going to let my driver answer it.Selective Hearing?Morris, an 86 year-old man, had his yearly appointment with his cardiologist. A few days later the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm. Later the doctor spoke to Morris and said, Youre really doing great, arent you? Morris replied, Just doing what you said, Doc: Get a hot mamma and be cheerful. The doctor said, I didnt say that. I said, Youve got a heart murmur. Be careful.Ping pongEric was in the midst of a very competitive table tennis match when he accidentally caught a slammed ball in the mouth and swallowed it. Gasping for air, he was rushed to the local hospital where surgery was performed. When Eric awoke several hours later he looked up at the doctor and thanked him for saving his life. Then he looked down and saw about twelve sewn up incisions on his stomach. Good gosh! exclaimed the patient. Why did you make so many cuts? The doctor spread his palms and replied, Thats the way the ball bounces. SpecialistsAn attractive young woman was being shown around the ship by Tim, a young intern, who was explaining to her how he had gone through medical school on a Navy loan program. And what is your specialty now? asked the woman. Im a naval surgeon, Tim responded. My, oh, my, sighed the woman. Medicine is certainly getting specialized these days!

The Enrichment Center building was bursting at the seams as members and friends donated countless items to the yard sale. Among the items sold were books, electronics, clothing as well as many other categories. The church received about $2,000 for the two days of work. One day was spent setting up the sale by organizing the donations and pricing them and the rest of the time was used selling and cleaning up for services on Sunday. Photos show the volunteer workers getting items ready for the sale. The all day set up project was done on Friday.

Ocala Health announces the appointment of Eric Keyser, MD, FACC to Medical Director of Cardiovascular Surgery at Ocala Regional Medical Center. In this role, Dr. Keyser will lead all aspects of cardiovascular surgical services, including staff education and training, patient care practices, quality initiatives, and equipment procurement. Dr. Keyser specializes in the latest minimally invasive cardiovascular surgical techniques, performing most of his heart bypass surgeries off-pump, which often affords the patient a faster recovery and shorter hospital stay as well as reduced risk of stroke or memory problems. Dr. Keyser most recently served as clinical director and attending surgeon in the cardiothoracic surgery section of Essentia Health Heart & Vascular Center in Fargo, North Dakota. Dr. Keysers education is from McGill University, Montreal, Canada and includes a Bachelor of Science in Physics, a Medical Doctorate, a Master of Surgery, and a Master of Science in Experimental Surgery. His postgraduate medical training include research fellowships in Critical Care Medicine, Surgical Education and Minimally Invasive Surgery at McGill, a completed residency in General Surgery at the McGill University Health Center, a completed residency in Cardiothoracic Surgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine Long Island Jewish Medical Center/Schneider Childrens Hospital in New York, and a clinical fellowship in advanced Adult Cardiac Surgery at the Harvard Medical School Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. He is a certified diplomat of the American Board of Surgery, the American Board of Thoracic Surgery, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in General Surgery, and of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in Cardiac Surgery. He is an active member and fellow of several medical and surgical societies. Dr. Keyser brings a level of cardiovascular surgical expertise which is comparable to that of leading heart institutes and not widely available in our community, said Randy McVay, chief executive officer, Ocala Health.
