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.

It is a privilege beyond words to be part of this vanishing experience. Each day, some 1,000 WWII veterans pass away, most of whom have never visited the memorial, which wasnt erected until 2004. Since the first Ocala Honor Flight in 2009, more than 100 veterans at a time have made the five trips to see for themselves the nations gratitude for their sacrifice at long last. About 50 medical personnel and volunteers are needed to assist these vets, who are in their late 70s and 80s. On the October 2012 flight, Hospice of Marion County employees Joanne Mancini, RN, and Donna Shaffer, volunteered to make the trip and were assigned to certain veterans. Joanne was side-by-side with Walter, a 78year-old Navy man who had served in the Pacific and is now wheelchair bound and on medication. She got special instructions from his wife from whom he had not been separated for even a day in their 64 years of marriage. When we touched down in Washington, the reception we received at the terminal was breathtaking. Not only were there military greeters, but crowds of people waving flags and saluting the veterans as they disembarked. What a way to start the tour! It only got more emotional from there. Joannes seaman wanted to visit specific areas of the memorial to find the names of his fellow servicemen. At one point he became overwhelmed, dissolving in tears of remembrance, loss and honor, as well as gratitude for the ability to be at the memorial. I, myself, had no idea the magnitude of how many fallen soldiers there were, said Joanne, and the mutual respect between all of those on the flight was instant and tangible. The tour includes several historic sites and ends with changing of the guard 28 ~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Final Honor Flight to be chronicled in movie Honor Flight: One Last Mission Sunday, May 26, 2 p.m. Appleton Museum PLEASESEEMOVIE PAGE3 PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKHammett Bowen Career Day Hammett Bowen Elementary School conducted a Career Day on Friday, May 10.

May 11 found many Marion County residents donating 1/4 ton of food for people who need it. The drive was sponsored by the letter carriers. This was done last year as it is a big help to local food pantries whose supply of food goes down fast with children for the summer. This means more food for families that do not have much to start with. More than 150 volunteers helped unload the mail trucks and sort the food into categories. Empty plastic bags were distributed to put the food in. Communities such as On Top of the World that have mail stations instead of house to house mail delivery used large bins on wheels placed at the mail stations earlier in the week.for donations. Publix stores prepackaged non-perishable food items for purchase and supplied containers and places to drop off the prepackaged food and any other items for the food drive. Food donated PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELFood was hung on mailboxes for collection. At left, some of the items gathered in.

According to the authors protagonists, without kill after kill of the states worst enemies the world had no chance to get better. Standing by and doing nothing would mean that the monsters win. When the novel opens, Will Robie, the highly skilled assassin first introduced in The Innocent, is given an unusual assignmentto kill one of the governments own, another skilled assassin who has unbelievably gone rogue. Her name is Jessica Reel and she is nearly Robies equal as a professional assassin. So one killer is sent after another killer, which makes sense, at least to Will Robie, because killers have their own special language. The high-octane action is relentless throughout with close calls involving ambushes, bombings, and double crosses. In time the close calls begin resembling each other in a dj vu way that is one of the thrillers flaws. The other flaw is a very slow start. True to a Baldacci novel things are not always what they seemlike Reels reasons for turning. Government conspiracies are rife and too many bad guys are wearing white hats. As Reel and Robie play a game of cat and mouse before actually confronting each other, the big question hanging over every scene is Who can be trusted? Robie and Reel have survived thus far because neither trusts anyone. As he has before Baldacci once again reworks his perennial theme that absolute power corrupts absolutely. The plot takes sharp turns and twists until readers are left to wonder if this lethal, murderous duo can ever lead a normal life or have a real relationship. The author bows to his fans in The Hit by serving up all the excitement theyve come to expect and in time to take it to the beach. Assassin receives strange assignment Bookmark Pat Wellington Health care seminar at churchOn June 10 at 6:30 p.m., Christs Church of Marion Countys Health Ministry will provide an opportunity to meet Doctor Meghavi S Kosboth.

Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com W hile we are well into our warmer weather folks up north have just started their farming and gardening. Perhaps thats why May is known as the Carrots and Cauliflower month, according to the Internet site, Bizarre, Crazy, Silly Unknown Holidays. Sit back and vegetate on some growing stories. A sinking fund A gardening club formed an association to exchange ideas and techniques for successful vegetable gardens. Soil mixture was the main subject at the first meeting. Most members felt that loam was essential to ensure success. And after more debate it became clear other members believed in a mixture of cypress shavings and sawdust. The group eventually decided to endorse a combination of the two preferred methods. As a result of the subsequent famous quality of the vegetables grown when planted in this mixture, the club earned the honor of being the only successful Shavings and Loam Association in America. Vegetable energyProfessor Gonnen Dunnit of the universitys physics department has spent a lifetime trying to create cold fusion in the lab. Recently he used molecules from vegetables to trigger the process on the atomic level. During one attempt, it seemed that he achieved his goal when the process resulted in a spherical burst of energy. But no other scientist could duplicate his results. The Nobel Prize committee considered his results, but dismissed Professor Dunnits efforts, saying he had only created a ball of corn fusion. CornyThe word corny may have begun in the 1890s. Companies selling seeds sent their catalogs to farmers. Jokes and riddles were added to the seed catalogs, but the jokes were obvious and trite. They became knows as corn catalog jokes, then corn jokes, and eventually the adjective corny was born. Examples live on today: Why did the tomato blush? Because he saw the salad dressing. What happens when you sit on a grape? It gives a little wine. Why arent bananas ever lonely? Because they hang out in bunches. Beets them all Pete the plumber took up gardening as a hobby. He grew all the usual vegetables, but after several seasons, he became fascinated with beets. He came to think, You cant beat beets! Late in one season Pete noticed that some of his beets were wilting. He called the local county extension agent and the agronomist decided he personally needed to look over the situation. Pete could not meet with him because he had to work; he just gave the agronomist the address and a description of the house. When the extension agent drove out to examine the beets, he forgot to take the directions. He thought he remembered Petes address, but, when he arrived in the area, he found that two houses on the block fit the description. Both had gardens with lots of beets. He queried a neighbor and learned that both houses belonged to plumbers. He chose to examine the beets in the garden that seemed most wilted. Taking out his stethoscope, he carefully examined the beets. He quickly identified the problem, so returned to his office. Later, when Pete the plumber called, the agent learned he had been at the wrong address. He exclaimed, My gosh, Ive been listening to the beets of a different plumber.Too good to leave outA Harvard study says that one out of ten deaths is caused by red meat. You know what that really means? Nine out of ten deaths are due to vegetables. U.S. customs officials recently discovered 310 pounds of marijuana hidden in some frozen carrots. Thats one way to keep kids away from drugs put them in vegetables. My vegetables are upset at the way I cooked them over boiling water. Theyre really steamed. Have you heard about the garlic diet? You dont lose much weight, but from a distance your friends think you look thinner. Botanists have developed a vegetable that eliminates the need to brush your teeth. Its called bristle sprouts. No flyChecking the menu, a restaurant customer ordered a bowl of vegetable soup. After a couple of spoonfuls, he saw a circle of wetness forming under the bowl on the tablecloth. He called the waitress over and said, Its all wet down here. The bowl must be cracked. The waitress said, You ordered vegetable soup; maybe it has a leek in it.

Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although you might prefer moving forward at a steady pace, it might be a good idea to stop and reassess your plans. You could find a good reason to make a change at this time. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Just when you thought you had everything planned to the smallest detail, you get some news that could unsettle things. But a timely explanation helps put it all back on track. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Home and work continue to compete for your attention. But you handle it well by giving each its proper due. Someone you trust offers valuable advice. Listen to it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Unsettling news creates a difficult but not impossible situation. Continue to follow your planned routine, but keep your mind open to a possible change down the line. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Lick your wounded pride if you like, but its a better idea to find out why your suggestions were rejected. What you learn could help you deal with an upcoming situation. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Feeling a bit listless? No wonder. You might be pushing too hard to finish everything on your to-do list. Cutting it could help get your energy levels up. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Taking time out of your busy schedule might be the best way to handle that sensitive private matter. It will help reassure everyone involved about your priorities. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Insist on full disclosure by all parties before agreeing to be part of a great deal. What you learn should help you decide whether to go with it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your decision to protect the secret that was entrusted to you might irk some people. But it also wins you the admiration of those who value trust and loyalty. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Creative activities take on a practical approach as you realize you might be able to market your work. Ask for advice from someone experienced in this area. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) If youre suddenly a bit unsure about your decision, ask trusted colleagues and/or friends or family members for suggestions that could help resolve your doubts. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A workplace situation could get stormy. But stay on course until theres a solution that meets with everyones approval, and things can finally calm down. BORN THIS WEEK: You keep an open mind on most matters, making you the confidante of choice for people who need your honest counsel.

Oak Run Travel Cancellations Our trip scheduled for July 20 to Ed Fletchers Dinner Theatre to see Cookin With Gus has been canceled as a result of notification from Ed Fletchers. They are moving from their familiar location we all loved to a new place which will not be ready until early fall. Our trip 9 to see Murder at Howard Johnsons on Oct. 5 at the new location is still scheduled. Due to residents canceling their seats on remaining Hard Rock trips, we have canceled all of our Hard Rock trips this year. These are trips numbered 2, 7, and 14. Residents have been canceling due to the policy change by Hard Rock whereby they are no longer giving free play. We are hoping to replace these cancellations with at least one trip this fall similar to our successful Mid-Week Getaway earlier this month. Look for an announcement soon.

Patty Waddell had a birdie on #16.Carol Anns Corner The editor has been having problems with people submitting pictures via e-mail that are very small. This is not a computer problem but rather a camera issue. Many people set the pixels on their camera as small as possible so the pictures use less space on the memory card and they can get more pictures on the card. Thats fine for home pictures but not good for newspaper publication. Cameras have settings for the pixel size. The editor sets his for 640x480 which produces pictures about 20 inches wide. At this pixel setting you can only e-mail about two at a time but they come out crystal clear. Check your pixel settings and make them bigger if you are planning to submit photos to the Citizen. You dont need to make the setting at the maximum size but an intermediate size would be better than itty-bitty. If you wish to submit hard copy photos or typed or written material please take them to the Citizen office at Kingsland Plaza across from Pine Run. Your columnist cannot accept them at her house. I submit my column no later than the Sunday evening before the column appears. Therefore please send me your material by late Sunday afternoon. My e-mail address is democratcarol@deccacable.com. Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, May 17, 2013 BY RICH LOWRY President Barack Obama was proud to become the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood the other week. But not proud enough to utter the word abortion. The right to abortion is the sneakiest, most shamefaced of all American rights. It hides behind evasion and euphemism and cant. So President Obama sang a hymn of praise to Planned Parenthood at the organizations annual conference without mentioning what makes it so distinctive and controversial. He said its core principle is that women should be allowed to make their own decisions about their own health. He excoriated opponents involved in an orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to womens health. Listening to him, you could be forgiven for thinking that the country is riven by a fierce dispute over whether women should be allowed to choose their own OB-GYNs or to get cancer screenings. In his speech, the president said the word cancer seven times. About that he is happy to be forthright. Imagine if he had been similarly frank about the core of Planned Parenthoods work: In 2011, according to your annual report, your clinics or affiliates performed 330,000 abortions. Thats a lot of abortion. Over 10 years more than 3 million. Thank you, Planned Parenthood. Think of all those women who wanted to terminate their pregnancies, and you were there for them. Thats what you are about. And thats what this countryis about. Before that crowd, he might have gotten rousing applause, but talking in such honest terms would have been a gross faux pas. The unwritten rule when the left discusses abortion is that it shouldnt be called abortion, but always health or, more specifically reproductive health although abortion is the opposite of reproduction and, for one party involved, the opposite of health. The trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell has been an exercise in stripping away euphemism. He is accused of murdering babies because he allegedly didnt manage to kill them in the womb and had to finS everal years ago, I cant remember exactly when, I sat around talking with my family. It wasnt that long after 9/11, so the topic drifted to terrorism. I remember making the statement that it really wasnt necessary to fly planes into buildings or blow up people to bring the free world to its knees. All the terrorists had to do was to learn how to crash, and maybe destroy, the Internet. Please understand, my sons are all electronically savvy. Coupled with my daughter being a 25-year teacher, that makes a pretty wellrounded group. They must have gotten their talents from their mother. Anyhow, one of the three boys, I cant recall which one, immediately said that doing such a thing to the Internet would pretty much be impossible because its so vast. That conversation was a distant memory until last Tuesday, when I sat at my computer at work, angrily pushing buttons and wondering why I couldnt get e-mail or Internet service. I reset and powered up every device we had here in the office, and still the buttonpushing produced no results. Its aggravating when your email says send and receive error, and your website search produces cant find server check your connections, make sure you typed the URL correctly, etc. I do have Internet access on my phone through another company, and eventually I was able to get the message that Century Link, the provider we use for our Internet, had an outage affecting its operations across the country. It didnt make me feel any better, but at least I knew it wasnt our fault. Later, Century Link said the problem concerned some core routers that malfunctioned. At this writing, its still not known what caused the router problem. All I know is that it nearly crippled us here at this office for a full day, and caused all sorts of problems getting material ready for last weeks Citizen, which is put together on Wednesday. That made me think what would happen if all providers suffered this same outage at the same time. If youre not aware how much the Internet and various other electronic connections are used in everyday life, well, please climb out from under your rock. News from everywhere, even down the street, gets into your newspaper and onto your television via e-mail and the Internet. Your bills for things like phone, gas, electric, etc., are generated with help from the Internet and e-mails. Computers process your medication, and your doctor probably sends in your prescription to your pharmacy via e-mail. In some cases, Internet monitoring keeps people alive. Traffic cameras that control lights on highways are using the Internet to send information. Your Sun Pass on the toll roads uses the Internet, and you can electronically add to your balance without leaving home, etc., etc. Get the picture? It was working Wednesday, and we were able to get the Citizen done. However, with being down all day Tuesday, Im reasonably sure we left something, somewhere, out of the paper that should have been in. If thats the case, please accept our apologies. After the paper was done Wednesday, I went home, plopped down and clicked on the TV, which is set to automatically come on to ESPN. The first thing I saw was a message, temporarily off the air. Try again later. I found that almost all cable stations on the regular network (not the HD tier), had the same message. I called my provider, Cox Cable, and got a message that there was an outage in our area. Fortunately, I was home alone, so my angry scream wasnt heard by anyone. After a few hours, service was restored properly, but it was just another technological glitch to add to my list. Were always told to back up your data. But I wonder how much backup these big Internet providers and cable television networks have. Evidently Century Link didnt have the ability to flip a switch to another set of core routers to keep us running. Cable stations on the HD tier were still working, as were broadcast stations, but obviously it took more than a quick switch to fix the Cox problem. So I hope that last weeks outages, particularly the Internet, arent immediately forgotten. Lets find out what happened and why, and make sure it doesnt happen again. Someday, our nations security, as well as your personal health, could depend on it. Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and South Marion Citizen, both in Ocala.

I f you had any doubts about the Big Brother takeover in Washington, D.C., a couple of events in the past few days should make those doubts go away. First, there was the revelation that the IRS targeted certain conservative groups for special scrutiny. It wasnt only the Tea Party, but groups with such threatening words as Liberty in their names, among others. Yes, you have to watch out for those groups who want liberty in America. It certainly appears as if the IRS, acting under orders from someone, decided that conservative Americans might be cheating on their taxes more than liberal Americans. President Obama has expressed indignation that such a thing happened. But obviously someone, somewhere, thought this would be a good idea. We doubt if most Americans join in that thinking. Then came the note that the Justice Department, another arm of the federal government, obtained a secret subpoena and got the phone records of The Associated Press, commonly known as AP For those who arent familiar with the AP it is a news cooperative, the largest in the U.S. The AP gets a lot of its news from member newspapers, who feed stories and photos to the service, which then retransmits it to all of its members. But the AP also has its own staff of writers, editors and photographers, stationed around the world, who cover events and put them out to members, a practice commonly called putting it on the wire. Most weekly newspapers such as ours are not members of the AP since we deal primarily with local news. But our parent daily newspaper, The Citrus County Chronicle, does use AP stories. Reports state that the Justice Department was trying to find the source of what it calls leaks about a situation a while back in Yemen. Evidently, by scrutinizing the APs phone calls, it hoped to zero in on the whistleblower. This has a chilling effect on a free press, guaranteed by the First Amendment. People are willing to expose the wrongs in government by being assured of their anonymity. Reporters have gone to jail to protect their sources. Hearings should be scheduled to determine how this secret subpoena came about. Who issued the secret subpoena? Who requested it? What supervisors thought it was a good idea? These are questions Congress needs to ask, and it doesnt need to be done behind closed doors. These are just two examples of how the federal government is getting out of hand. Our ancestors fought for a free country, and a war was fought over states rights. Now there are some in government who have gotten too powerful, and are threatening those freedoms. Maybe its time for some housecleaning in Washington, not only of elected officials but of bureaucrats who work behind the scenes to erode our freedom. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Big Brothers: Justice and IRS As the Internet fails, everything stops President Obama and the Euphemism Imperative READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor ish the job outside the womb. His case is so discomfiting for liberals not only because it is such a stark picture of the seamy, money-grubbing side of abortion, but because it illustrates how slight the difference is between late-term abortion or late-term health and what nearly everyone recognizes as a crime. In a story about the case, The New York Times referred to the newborns killed by Gosnell as fetuses. The definition of a fetus according to Merriam-Webster is an unborn or unhatched vertebrate. By definition, the newborns werent fetuses; they werent unborn But the Times couldnt bring itself to use the word baby. This is the crux of the matter: If it is a baby outside the womb, why not inside the womb? If a procedure to end its life is wrong outside the womb, why isnt it wrong inside the womb? The essence of abortion is that there are two lives when you start and one when you finish. If it were your business to perform them and fight all restrictions on them, no matter how slight, you wouldnt want to be forthright and honest about it, either.Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.(c) 2013 by King Features Synd., Inc.

I have a terrible confession to get off my chest. It is a secret I have tried to hide from family and friends for years. Up to this point, I have been fairly successful in hiding this but I believe the time has come to clear the air. Having a secret is a terrible burden to bear especially around people who know you. You always run the risk that somebody is going to find out and then tell everybody and then the whole world knows your secret. The purpose of a secret is so that nobody knows. I even tried to keep this from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, which comes as close to walking on water as I have ever come. Several times, she has come close to finding out this deep seated secret of mine. Even though this is risky business, I need to make a full confession. Someone has said that confession is good for the soul, but I am not quite sure. My confession is this, and please do not hate me because of it, I love to take afternoon naps. There, I said it. I am not sure what it did for my soul but I do not feel any happier about making this confession. I am a firm believer in what some people refer to as the power nap. The problem is I live amongst a people that believe if you take a nap in the afternoon you are either very young are getting very old. The former is not the issue, and I will take issue with the latter. I must admit that there was a time in my life when I did not take naps. In fact, I had a hard time going to bed before midnight. I hated going to bed and could not wait until morning so I could jump out of bed and get back to work. Do not get me wrong, I was not a workaholic. I just liked what I was doing. I am not sure when it started but I noticed a few years ago I was not resisting going to bed like before. I did not fight it is much as I used to. If the truth were known, hopefully it wont be, as soon as my head hit the pillow the Sandman started doing his thing. It was not long before I started sneaking 40 winks in the afternoon. I distinctly remember one afternoon when my wife said, Youre not taking a nap, are you? I know lying is not a good thing, especially to your spouse. Sometimes when you are in a fixed such as I was in at that moment, the truth scampers in the opposite direction. No, I stuttered as she looked at me. I was just meditating. I guess everybody snores when theyre meditating, she said with a Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Now thats news I can really use Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder smirk on her face. From then on, it was a game trying to get in a nap without getting into trouble. I did find out that after one of my power naps I was able to do a lot more work. However, I kept that bit of information to myself. Then my whole world changed. Dont you like it when something happens proving you are right? It does not happen very often to me, when it does, I relish it like a freshly baked Apple Fritter. I happened to be watching some television news program. I confess I was half dozing and watching at the same time, but suddenly they said something that got my full salute attention. According to the story, and they cant put it on TV unless its true, right? But according to this story, research showed that there was a great deal of benefits associated with afternoon naps. That was enough for me and I, like the gentleman I am, called for my wife to come and watch this news story with me. Some things in life should be shared and this was one of them. Afternoon naps drastically reduce the danger of heart attack and improve a persons memory. So, I said to my wife after the story, what do you think of that? She smiled and looked at me and said, Well, it must work because you never forget to take a nap. I will forgive her for the hilarious laughter following her remark. Just so you know, the laughter did not come from me. I may have been smiling on the outside but I was snorting on the inside. For years, I thought taking an afternoon nap was rather beneficial. Now I have the proof and I can indulge in a daily power nap without feeling any sense of guilt at all. I love it when I have been proven right. Now I take great delight in one of my favorite Bible passages. Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls (Matthew 11:28-29). A friend of mine often says, Come apart and rest a while or youll just come apart. An afternoon nap has unashamedly become part of my daily activity. 000ES7X (352) 563-6698 (866) 860-BUGS For solutions to all your pest problems, call today! 406 N.E. 1ST ST., CRYSTAL RIVER A complete inspection of the interior and the exterior of your property.

Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Benghazi disgrace It comes as no surprise the Democrats see no scandal in the Benghazi deaths. How can anyone believe Obama, Clinton and top administration officials didnt know from the very beginning that we were under a carefully planned terrorist attack? Regretfully they agreed to make up the story of the attackers motivation coming from a video. They chose to lie, over and over again, with the obvious goal of preventing political damage so close to the election. Susan Rice then spread the video rumor five different times after she was obviously told to do so. Additionally, how could the stand down order, which insured the deaths of those attempting the rescue, be implemented without Obamas knowledge? It is apparent some in the administration were aware of the situation but let them die. and there should be consequences for doing so. Our elite media, pawns of the liberal Democrats, will do all they can to minimize this tragedy for as long as they can get away with it. Can you imagine their reaction if this occurred under a Republican president? They would have talked impeachment from day one! Hopefully, we will get to the whole truth in the near future as others come forth who have first hand knowledge of the details. We simply want the truth! Wayne Rackley Ocala Negative Influence on Sports The problem of lopsided negative influence of advertising on educational institutional sports programs could be solved by administrators banning scholastic sports from advertising-sponsored television. This would require an attitudinal change that educational institutions are for the primary purpose of providing an education and not as profit centers for the institution. If it is too much an effort to travel to see the games in person, perhaps each school could help sponsor a C-Spantype operation in which fans could watch the game much as people watch in the stadium. No commentary, no ads, no up close and personal, just the game.

Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com M any of us are familiar with the story of the Garden of Eden, the beautiful paradise where the Creator put the first humans, Adam and Eve. The story is told in the Book of Genesis that Eve offered a fruit to Adam from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. And in this modern age of the computer, the fruit has also become the logo of a computer company. Are the two ideas related? Some people feel that this fruit was an apple, hence the term Adams Apple referring to the prominence of the neck in males caused by the angle of the thyroid cartilage surrounding the larynx. It has been thought that a piece of the so-called fruit, i.e. apple got caught in Adams throat, hence the rather romantic name for this common feature. But was it really an apple or a misreading of the text? The text itself says the word pree which just means fruit but it was the fanciful artistic licenses of the Middle Ages that depicted Eve holding out an apple to Adam. Had the fruit been an apple, the text would have rendered the word tapuach but like many legends and misconceptions through the ages, the icon of the apple seemed to be a depiction of the forbidden fruit. Jewish sages, of course, have their own interpretations. There are varying opinions of the subject in both the Talmud and the Midrash. (commentary) Rabbis Nechemia and Jose both believed that the fruit was a fig for Adam and Eve repaired the misdeed of their sin by covering their bodies with fig leaves to cover their nakedness. They accomplished this by sewing the rather large leaves of the fig tree into a form of a covering for strategic sexual parts. I kind of like this interpretation because the fig tree is one of the species mentioned in the Torah as symbolic of the Land of Israel and it is featured in the Bible in beautiful quotes by the prophets in their visions of a peacetime when all will sit under their vine and fig tree in peace. As the old joke goes, with three Jews you get four opinions. Throw a few rabbis into the mix, and even more controversy arises. Rabbi Abba of Akko believed the fruit was a citron, a kind of lemon-like fruit used for ritual purposes on the harvest festival of Sukkot. In the Talmud, Rabbi Judah ben Illai attributes the fruit to be the grape since it is wine that causes humans so much trouble. Rabbi Meirs opinion was that it was wheat. This idea came from the idea that when a person lacks knowledge it means that they have not eaten from the bread of wheat. How wheat could be mistaken for a tree was explained that the wheat in the Garden of Eden grew as lofty as the cedars of Lebanon. While bread may be the staff of life, I do believe that this interpretation is way off base. I can hardly believe that a cultivated crop like wheat would have been growing in the Garden of Eden in such lush abundance. It is not Jewish opinion that the forbidden fruit was an apple. It might have been a fig, grapes, citron or wheat according to Jewish commentary sources. As for the computer logo, it was said that Steve Jobs, founder of Apple Computers worked on a farm in Oregon where he came up with a name he thought was simple and would have no copyright restrictions. A music lover, it is also thought he was influenced by the recording label for the Beatles which was apple. Whatever the case, this column could not have been written without that Apple and there is surely much to gain by using a computer to learn about good and evil. As for me, Ill take a nice, crisp Pink Lady, fresh off the tree from North Carolina. A tree grew in Eden Judis Journal Judi Siegal Moving out of Schweinfurt, Tuckey and the rest of his regiment advanced towards Furth and Nuremberg; the very cradle of Nazism. Five divisions were combined to make the assault on Furth with E Company and the 222 leading the way. An estimated 5000 German soldiers surrendered following a bitter battle. A little known fact that Tuckeys letters revealed was the vast amount of suicides that took place during the early months of 1945. As the Nazis learned of their impending defeat many decided to take their own lives rather than live with the reprisals that would come from those they had vanquished. In many cases, whole families took themselves out rather than face punitive actions by either a court or their neighbors. Marching on, the 222 became aware of a prison camp in a town called Dachau. Tuckeys battalion was sent to investigate and what they found while not described in detail by Gary has been well documented in many other historical accounts. Many of the six million Jews exterminated by the Nazis were killed at the camp in Dachau. Above the entrance way in wrought iron was the lying words, Arbeit macht frei (Work will make you free). From many miles away, there was a stench in the air that increased the closer they came to the city. If nothing else, this gives evidence that the people living in the towns and surrounding villages must have known what was happening in these hell holes of human suffering. Ascribing the reports of these concentration camps and the atrocities that were taking place in them to Propaganda, Tuckey on that day in Dachau found himself face to face with reality. It was a sickening moment for him and those with him. In his own words he speaks of the death camp: Only after viewing the indescribable conditions of concentrations camps, PW cages, interment prisons, etc. have we finally realized the necessity of the four months of hell weve experienced in combat with an inhuman race of men. Tuckey carried the memories and weight of his war time experience with him. He did not share his experiences with others as I said before but later in life he suffered nightmares. He would tell his parents, I have enough souvenirs in the back of my mind to last the rest of my life. For 26 years, Gary Tuckey stayed in the Army. He was commissioned and worked his way to Lieutenant Colonel before his retirement. In addition to the Second World War, LTC Tuckey also saw service in the war in Vietnam having been deployed to that location on two occasions. He had medals and ribbons too numerous to mention in this article and many artifacts and memorabilia items but more importantly, he felt a sense of having been both a protector and an honorable man. For Thom, who is also a very successful Army officer, Garys military legacy was one of always taking care of his troops and getting along well with those who worked with and for him. It was a lesson Thom learned and lived well. What Gary left for you and me is a nation that did the honorable and correct thing in the face of nearly insurmountable odds. We took a terrible evil from mankind at a cost of lives that staggers the imagination and freed much of world. On this Memorial Day, we at Cherrywood will honor patriots such as Gary Tuckey who passed away last year. Our heads will bow in a moment of silence; a wreath will be placed in an honored place; our flags will fly at half staff. From this outward showing of honor and respect I can only pray that we commit ourselves to ridding the world of hate and totalitarianism with the same courage and valor as those who went before us.

This is the type of behavior that exemplifies the family atmosphere here at Cherrywood. To all who helped Sheila, she sends a heartfelt Thank you. Bowlers end seasonOur Cherrywood Monday morning bowling league ended its season two weeks ago and these dedicated high rollers will now take the summer off to prepare for next years season. This fun non-sanctioned league has been going for many years and is enjoyed by scores of our residents. There were highlights like Howard Mayberry bowling a 635 series that included a 253 game while encumbered by a special mask required for a medical condition. Howard inspired many of his friends and teammates. Another bit of excitement came on the last day of the season when the first place team was decided. There were many more individual and team accomplishments this season. If there were any low spots they came after the season ended. For many years Sandee Spencer and Fran Hall have been in charge of the league. Sandee as president has guided and directed the teams and their players while Fran has handled all of the finances for the league. For personal reasons, they have both decided to step away from these responsibilities for a while. Under Sandee and Frans leadership and with the assistance of all of our bowlers, the Veterans Club was able to raise over $1,500 last October for its charity projects. Along with all the bowlers we thank these two wonderful ladies for all they accomplished and the great services they provided. If you would like to volunteer to take an office with the bowling league or if you would like to sign up for next season, contact Geri in the office at 352-237-1675.

If youve been following the articles in your Citizen you know what a fantastic job Dick Richards does in bringing you a night of musical excellence. Over the past few months this event has only increased in popularity and if you come out between 5:30 and 9 in the evening you will see what the buzz is all about. Musicians in all ranges of talent and a wide variety of instruments play songs of every genre. Youll hear standards and polkas; pop and old favorites; novelty tunes and everything else at these concerts. Professionals who have played with some of the greatest stars of their day; amateurs just learning their instruments all combine to make up the great entertainment that is Accordion Club night. Bring your snacks, beverages, friends and neighbors and then come out for a beautiful evening of first rate musical entertainment. Spotlight on excellenceAs Memorial Day approaches, and we prepare to pay homage to those who gave their all for our freedoms, I was given an article from a Fort Gordon, Georgia, online magazine. I take the liberty of sharing this with you, my fellow readers, because the subject of the article, Gary Tuckey, was a member of our community whose wife Virginia still resides in Cherrywood. Thom Tuckey, Garys son and also the former Garrison Commander of Fort Gordon had a keen interest in finding out about his fathers experiences in World War II. Like many combat veterans of his day, Gary never spoke of his experiences during the war except in generalities. Gary served along side one particular soldier by the name of Howard Hall. Howards granddaughter discovered some letters that were written by Gary along with some of her grandfathers memorabilia. Thom was notified and shared some of the information in the Fort Gordon article. The words of the letters are concise and not very dramatic yet they convey the emotion and loneliness that only a soldier or sailor in combat zones can relate to. One letter in particular talks of the loss of Garys squad leader. That man had also been Tuckeys roommate at college and close friend. Another letter speaks about six months of constant combat during the Battle of the Bulge and the long trek to Germany that followed. Being a mortar crew chief at that time in history was a rugged job; Gary witnessed all of the horrors of war. As Tuckeys outfit, E Company of the 222 Infantry Regiment, approached the German city of Wurzburg, he witnessed the first of many atrocities. The German Army blew up a bridge that led into the town. U.S. Army Engineers under the cover of smoke generators built another. When American troops began to advance into the town, many German soldiers attempted to surrender only to be shot by SS troops. Following the hard won victory in Wurzburg, the 222 pushed toward the town of Schweinfurt, Germany. Schweinfurt was a center for producing ball bearings for the entire German Reich and was the target of the Eighth Air Force for many years. It was a main target of the bombers and they suffered horrendous losses trying to destroy this key city. Fighting their way into Germany, Tuckey recalls in his letters the huge blow to morale that the death of Franklin Roosevelt was. The man who had led the United States war effort died before the final victory causing a deep sense of loss to the troops in the field.

Veterans Club meetingAt 2 p.m. on June 6, the Cherrywood Veterans Club will hold its monthly meeting. Our guests this month are from the Ritz House in Ocala. You will have a chance to speak with the administrators such as Al Morrison and a couple of veterans who are benefiting from the services provided by Ritz House. Veterans club meetings are always open to the public. After the meeting enjoy free liquid refreshments on the patio. Honor Flight On Thursday, May 23 we have a date. At 7 p.m. everyone is encouraged to meet at the Cherrywood clubhouse to car pool down to the Ocala International Airport in order to welcome home the last Honor Flight. Honor Flight was a program designed to pay homage to those of the Greatest Generation that are still with us. World War II veterans were flown free of charge to Washington D.C. to see first hand the monument built in their honor and to be thanked by various dignitaries. It was a very successful project and Marion County provided the third most participants in the United States. Now those flights are coming to an end but we want the veterans on board this final flight to know just how much we appreciate all that they did for us and for this great Nation of ours. If youd like to be with us, please contact Bill Mahar at 352-873-1341. We suggest that everyone bring a lawn chair just in case there is a delay in the flight but none is anticipated. Everyone will receive a flag to hold while greeting these special veterans and all will have a chance to cheer for these heros. An example of the experiences of these World War II vets is featured in the Spotlight on Excellence article at the end of this column. Wont you please join us in this worthy endeavor? A special Thank YouSheila Hockenberry was lying in her bed recovering from a medication reaction that sent her blood pressure dangerously high. She saw a brilliant flash of lightening and heard a loud clap of thunder; wind whirled around her house and she heard an earsplitting cracking crash. Painfully she rose to see what was happening. Looking out the window, she saw one of her huge trees totally down; uprooted and lying across the roadway. As you might imagine, the nearly helpless woman was horrified. Along with the tree being down, the houses water pipes had been torn up so she had no water. Immediately, there was a pounding at her door and her phone began ringing. It was her neighbors coming to her rescue. In the hours and days that followed Sheila received a great deal of assistance from Robert Metzer; Pat McKenna; On Thursday, May 30 at 11 a.m., the Cherrywood Veterans Club will observe the most solemn holiday of the calendar year, Memorial Day. While the rest of the country will celebrate on Monday, the Veterans of Cherrywood have chosen to keep the traditional day of observance. Memorial Day was instituted shortly after the Civil War as a time to decorate the graves of fallen soldiers with flowers and to take time to remember their sacrifice. Because of this, originally it was called Decoration Day. Following the First World War, the day was set aside to remember all of those who died in war for this country. In 1915, in answer to the poem In Flanders Fields, Moina Michael wrote the following: We cherish too, the Poppy Red That grows on fields were valor led; It seems to signal to the skies That the blood of heroes never dies. Ms. Michaels also began the movement to sell the bright red flowers to benefit disabled soldiers and sailors. Thus today, the poppy is the symbol of all veterans who have sacrificed and in honor of that, Poppies will be on sale prior to and after the ceremony. Proceeds will go to the VFW Post. At 11 a.m. the Cherrywood observance will begin in front of the clubhouse with the presentation of the flag. The National Anthem will be played followed by our guest speaker, retired Navy Chief Steven Jacobs. Chief Jacobs is head of the Ocala Veterans Services Office. Following the guest speaker, the Armed Forces medley will be played to salute the veterans of all branches of the U.S. military. Trude and Skip Smith, accompanied by Veterans Club President Bill Mahar, will present a wreath at the monument and Taps will be sounded. The conclusion will be the retiring of the colors by our Color Guard. Please note that this service is free and open to all who wish to attend. Immediately following the Memorial Day service, a picnic lunch will begin. Our picnic celebrates the American way of life that our heroes died for and will take place in the clubhouse right after the ceremonies have ended. Hamburgers and hot dogs; beans and cole slaw; iced tea and lemonade will all be available and as usual, if you want to bring your own beverage, you are welcome to do that. This luncheon always enjoys great support as it is a fund raiser for the Veterans Club. Tickets for the picnic are $7 each and must be presented prior to being served in the Clubhouse. You can obtain tickets from Geri in our Clubhouse office during normal business hours. All are encouraged to attend both the service and the picnic. At noon, the flag will be raised to full staff in a short ceremony. Please plan to attend our service and picnic to support your veterans as they continue to serve the community and veterans in need. Newcomers coffee hourIf you are new to the Cherrywood Community, we urge you to come out to the informal coffee hour on Saturday, May 18 at 10 a.m. This meet and greet will allow you to obtain maps and other handouts that will make your transition to Ocala much smoother and more enjoyable. This is also a chance to meet some of your neighbors who are part of the many great activities that we have here at Cherrywood including the CERT team; Garden Club; Veterans Club; Physical Fitness; Social Committee; Activities Committee and more. This function is absolutely free to anyone who has moved into our community within the past six months. Call Geri at the office and let her know youll be there.

This event is free but tickets are required so see Geri in the clubhouse. Your ticket makes you eligible for the door prize thats awarded that evening. Rich Becotte and his sound system of thousands of songs will provide the music to dance and listen to throughout the evening. If you have a favorite song to dance to, ask him and chances are it is in his vast library. Bring you own beverages or enjoy the free lemonade and iced tea thats provided. Veterans Club meetingAt 2 p.m. on June 6, the Cherrywood Veterans Club will hold its monthly meeting. Our guests this month are from the Ritz House in Ocala. You will have a chance to speak with the administrators such as Al Morrison and a couple of veterans who are benefiting from the services provided by Ritz House. Veterans club meetings are always open to the public. After the meeting enjoy free liquid refreshments on the patio. Honor Flight On Thursday, May 23 we have a date. At 7 p.m. everyone is encouraged to meet at the Cherrywood clubhouse to car pool down to the Ocala International Airport in order to welcome home the last Honor Flight. Honor Flight was a program designed to pay homage to those of the Greatest Generation that are still with us. World War II veterans were flown free of charge to Washington D.C. to see first hand the monument built in their honor and to be thanked by various dignitaries. It was a very successful project and Marion County provided the third most participants in the United States. Now those flights are coming to an end but we want the veterans on board this final flight to know just how much we appreciate all that they did for us and for this great Nation of ours. If youd like to be with us, please contact Bill Mahar at 352-873-1341. We suggest that everyone bring a lawn chair just in case there is a delay in the flight but none is anticipated. Everyone will receive a flag to hold while greeting these special veterans and all will have a chance to cheer for these heros. An example of the experiences of these World War II vets is featured in the Spotlight on Excellence article at the end of this column. Wont you please join us in this worthy endeavor? A special Thank YouSheila Hockenberry was lying in her bed recovering from a medication reaction that sent her blood pressure dangerously high. She saw a brilliant flash of lightening and heard a loud clap of thunder; wind whirled around her house and she heard an earsplitting cracking crash. Painfully she rose to see what was happening. Looking out the window, she saw one of her huge trees totally down; uprooted and lying across the roadway. As you might imagine, the nearly helpless woman was horrified. Along with the tree being down, the houses water pipes had been torn up so she had no water. Immediately, there was a pounding at her door and her phone began ringing. It was her neighbors coming to her rescue. In the hours and days that followed Sheila received a great deal of assistance from Robert Metzer; Pat McKenna; On Thursday, May 30 at 11 a.m., the Cherrywood Veterans Club will observe the most solemn holiday of the calendar year, Memorial Day. While the rest of the country will celebrate on Monday, the Veterans of Cherrywood have chosen to keep the traditional day of observance. Memorial Day was instituted shortly after the Civil War as a time to decorate the graves of fallen soldiers with flowers and to take time to remember their sacrifice. Because of this, originally it was called Decoration Day. Following the First World War, the day was set aside to remember all of those who died in war for this country. In 1915, in answer to the poem In Flanders Fields, Moina Michael wrote the following: We cherish too, the Poppy Red That grows on fields were valor led; It seems to signal to the skies That the blood of heroes never dies. Ms. Michaels also began the movement to sell the bright red flowers to benefit disabled soldiers and sailors. Thus today, the poppy is the symbol of all veterans who have sacrificed and in honor of that, Poppies will be on sale prior to and after the ceremony. Proceeds will go to the VFW Post. At 11 a.m. the Cherrywood observance will begin in front of the clubhouse with the presentation of the flag. The National Anthem will be played followed by our guest speaker, retired Navy Chief Steven Jacobs. Chief Jacobs is head of the Ocala Veterans Services Office. Following the guest speaker, the Armed Forces medley will be played to salute the veterans of all branches of the U.S. military. Trude and Skip Smith, accompanied by Veterans Club President Bill Mahar, will present a wreath at the monument and Taps will be sounded. The conclusion will be the retiring of the colors by our Color Guard. Please note that this service is free and open to all who wish to attend. Immediately following the Memorial Day service, a picnic lunch will begin. Our picnic celebrates the American way of life that our heroes died for and will take place in the clubhouse right after the ceremonies have ended. Hamburgers and hot dogs; beans and cole slaw; iced tea and lemonade will all be available and as usual, if you want to bring your own beverage, you are welcome to do that. This luncheon always enjoys great support as it is a fund raiser for the Veterans Club. Tickets for the picnic are $7 each and must be presented prior to being served in the Clubhouse. You can obtain tickets from Geri in our Clubhouse office during normal business hours. All are encouraged to attend both the service and the picnic. At noon, the flag will be raised to full staff in a short ceremony. Please plan to attend our service and picnic to support your veterans as they continue to serve the community and veterans in need. Newcomers coffee hourIf you are new to the Cherrywood Community, we urge you to come out to the informal coffee hour on Saturday, May 18 at 10 a.m. This meet and greet will allow you to obtain maps and other handouts that will make your transition to Ocala much smoother and more enjoyable. This is also a chance to meet some of your neighbors who are part of the many great activities that we have here at Cherrywood including the CERT team; Garden Club; Veterans Club; Physical Fitness; Social Committee; Activities Committee and more. This function is absolutely free to anyone who has moved into our community within the past six months. Call Geri at the office and let her know youll be there.

From cooking meals to repairing damaged pipes; from lawn care to tree removal these four people as well as others, helped Sheila survive a very frightening experience.

This is the type of behavior that exemplifies the family atmosphere here at Cherrywood. To all who helped Sheila, she sends a heartfelt Thank you. Bowlers end seasonOur Cherrywood Monday morning bowling league ended its season two weeks ago and these dedicated high rollers will now take the summer off to prepare for next years season. This fun non-sanctioned league has been going for many years and is enjoyed by scores of our residents. There were highlights like Howard Mayberry bowling a 635 series that included a 253 game while encumbered by a special mask required for a medical condition. Howard inspired many of his friends and teammates. Another bit of excitement came on the last day of the season when the first place team was decided. There were many more individual and team accomplishments this season. If there were any low spots they came after the season ended. For many years Sandee Spencer and Fran Hall have been in charge of the league. Sandee as president has guided and directed the teams and their players while Fran has handled all of the finances for the league. For personal reasons, they have both decided to step away from these responsibilities for a while. Under Sandee and Frans leadership and with the assistance of all of our bowlers, the Veterans Club was able to raise over $1,500 last October for its charity projects. Along with all the bowlers we thank these two wonderful ladies for all they accomplished and the great services they provided. If you would like to volunteer to take an office with the bowling league or if you would like to sign up for next season, contact Geri in the office at 352-237-1675.

If youve been following the articles in your Citizen you know what a fantastic job Dick Richards does in bringing you a night of musical excellence. Over the past few months this event has only increased in popularity and if you come out between 5:30 and 9 in the evening you will see what the buzz is all about. Musicians in all ranges of talent and a wide variety of instruments play songs of every genre. Youll hear standards and polkas; pop and old favorites; novelty tunes and everything else at these concerts. Professionals who have played with some of the greatest stars of their day; amateurs just learning their instruments all combine to make up the great entertainment that is Accordion Club night. Bring your snacks, beverages, friends and neighbors and then come out for a beautiful evening of first rate musical entertainment. Spotlight on excellenceAs Memorial Day approaches, and we prepare to pay homage to those who gave their all for our freedoms, I was given an article from a Fort Gordon, Georgia, online magazine. I take the liberty of sharing this with you, my fellow readers, because the subject of the article, Gary Tuckey, was a member of our community whose wife Virginia still resides in Cherrywood. Thom Tuckey, Garys son and also the former Garrison Commander of Fort Gordon had a keen interest in finding out about his fathers experiences in World War II. Like many combat veterans of his day, Gary never spoke of his experiences during the war except in generalities. Gary served along side one particular soldier by the name of Howard Hall. Howards granddaughter discovered some letters that were written by Gary along with some of her grandfathers memorabilia. Thom was notified and shared some of the information in the Fort Gordon article. The words of the letters are concise and not very dramatic yet they convey the emotion and loneliness that only a soldier or sailor in combat zones can relate to. One letter in particular talks of the loss of Garys squad leader. That man had also been Tuckeys roommate at college and close friend. Another letter speaks about six months of constant combat during the Battle of the Bulge and the long trek to Germany that followed. Being a mortar crew chief at that time in history was a rugged job; Gary witnessed all of the horrors of war. As Tuckeys outfit, E Company of the 222 Infantry Regiment, approached the German city of Wurzburg, he witnessed the first of many atrocities. The German Army blew up a bridge that led into the town. U.S. Army Engineers under the cover of smoke generators built another. When American troops began to advance into the town, many German soldiers attempted to surrender only to be shot by SS troops. Following the hard won victory in Wurzburg, the 222 pushed toward the town of Schweinfurt, Germany. Schweinfurt was a center for producing ball bearings for the entire German Reich and was the target of the Eighth Air Force for many years. It was a main target of the bombers and they suffered horrendous losses trying to destroy this key city. Fighting their way into Germany, Tuckey recalls in his letters the huge blow to morale that the death of Franklin Roosevelt was. The man who had led the United States war effort died before the final victory causing a deep sense of loss to the troops in the field.

Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com M any of us are familiar with the story of the Garden of Eden, the beautiful paradise where the Creator put the first humans, Adam and Eve. The story is told in the Book of Genesis that Eve offered a fruit to Adam from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. And in this modern age of the computer, the fruit has also become the logo of a computer company. Are the two ideas related? Some people feel that this fruit was an apple, hence the term Adams Apple referring to the prominence of the neck in males caused by the angle of the thyroid cartilage surrounding the larynx. It has been thought that a piece of the so-called fruit, i.e. apple got caught in Adams throat, hence the rather romantic name for this common feature. But was it really an apple or a misreading of the text? The text itself says the word pree which just means fruit but it was the fanciful artistic licenses of the Middle Ages that depicted Eve holding out an apple to Adam. Had the fruit been an apple, the text would have rendered the word tapuach but like many legends and misconceptions through the ages, the icon of the apple seemed to be a depiction of the forbidden fruit. Jewish sages, of course, have their own interpretations. There are varying opinions of the subject in both the Talmud and the Midrash. (commentary) Rabbis Nechemia and Jose both believed that the fruit was a fig for Adam and Eve repaired the misdeed of their sin by covering their bodies with fig leaves to cover their nakedness. They accomplished this by sewing the rather large leaves of the fig tree into a form of a covering for strategic sexual parts. I kind of like this interpretation because the fig tree is one of the species mentioned in the Torah as symbolic of the Land of Israel and it is featured in the Bible in beautiful quotes by the prophets in their visions of a peacetime when all will sit under their vine and fig tree in peace. As the old joke goes, with three Jews you get four opinions. Throw a few rabbis into the mix, and even more controversy arises. Rabbi Abba of Akko believed the fruit was a citron, a kind of lemon-like fruit used for ritual purposes on the harvest festival of Sukkot. In the Talmud, Rabbi Judah ben Illai attributes the fruit to be the grape since it is wine that causes humans so much trouble. Rabbi Meirs opinion was that it was wheat. This idea came from the idea that when a person lacks knowledge it means that they have not eaten from the bread of wheat. How wheat could be mistaken for a tree was explained that the wheat in the Garden of Eden grew as lofty as the cedars of Lebanon. While bread may be the staff of life, I do believe that this interpretation is way off base. I can hardly believe that a cultivated crop like wheat would have been growing in the Garden of Eden in such lush abundance. It is not Jewish opinion that the forbidden fruit was an apple. It might have been a fig, grapes, citron or wheat according to Jewish commentary sources. As for the computer logo, it was said that Steve Jobs, founder of Apple Computers worked on a farm in Oregon where he came up with a name he thought was simple and would have no copyright restrictions. A music lover, it is also thought he was influenced by the recording label for the Beatles which was apple. Whatever the case, this column could not have been written without that Apple and there is surely much to gain by using a computer to learn about good and evil. As for me, Ill take a nice, crisp Pink Lady, fresh off the tree from North Carolina. A tree grew in Eden Judis Journal Judi Siegal Moving out of Schweinfurt, Tuckey and the rest of his regiment advanced towards Furth and Nuremberg; the very cradle of Nazism. Five divisions were combined to make the assault on Furth with E Company and the 222 leading the way. An estimated 5000 German soldiers surrendered following a bitter battle. A little known fact that Tuckeys letters revealed was the vast amount of suicides that took place during the early months of 1945. As the Nazis learned of their impending defeat many decided to take their own lives rather than live with the reprisals that would come from those they had vanquished. In many cases, whole families took themselves out rather than face punitive actions by either a court or their neighbors. Marching on, the 222 became aware of a prison camp in a town called Dachau. Tuckeys battalion was sent to investigate and what they found while not described in detail by Gary has been well documented in many other historical accounts. Many of the six million Jews exterminated by the Nazis were killed at the camp in Dachau. Above the entrance way in wrought iron was the lying words, Arbeit macht frei (Work will make you free). From many miles away, there was a stench in the air that increased the closer they came to the city. If nothing else, this gives evidence that the people living in the towns and surrounding villages must have known what was happening in these hell holes of human suffering. Ascribing the reports of these concentration camps and the atrocities that were taking place in them to Propaganda, Tuckey on that day in Dachau found himself face to face with reality. It was a sickening moment for him and those with him. In his own words he speaks of the death camp: Only after viewing the indescribable conditions of concentrations camps, PW cages, interment prisons, etc. have we finally realized the necessity of the four months of hell weve experienced in combat with an inhuman race of men. Tuckey carried the memories and weight of his war time experience with him. He did not share his experiences with others as I said before but later in life he suffered nightmares. He would tell his parents, I have enough souvenirs in the back of my mind to last the rest of my life. For 26 years, Gary Tuckey stayed in the Army. He was commissioned and worked his way to Lieutenant Colonel before his retirement. In addition to the Second World War, LTC Tuckey also saw service in the war in Vietnam having been deployed to that location on two occasions. He had medals and ribbons too numerous to mention in this article and many artifacts and memorabilia items but more importantly, he felt a sense of having been both a protector and an honorable man. For Thom, who is also a very successful Army officer, Garys military legacy was one of always taking care of his troops and getting along well with those who worked with and for him. It was a lesson Thom learned and lived well. What Gary left for you and me is a nation that did the honorable and correct thing in the face of nearly insurmountable odds. We took a terrible evil from mankind at a cost of lives that staggers the imagination and freed much of world. On this Memorial Day, we at Cherrywood will honor patriots such as Gary Tuckey who passed away last year. Our heads will bow in a moment of silence; a wreath will be placed in an honored place; our flags will fly at half staff. From this outward showing of honor and respect I can only pray that we commit ourselves to ridding the world of hate and totalitarianism with the same courage and valor as those who went before us. For a copy of the article concerning LTC Gary Tuckey please go to http://www.fortgordonfyi.com/1013/04/m emoirs-of-a-service-past/From your reporterI would like to express my deep appreciation to Virginia Tuckey for supplying me with the information for this weeks Spotlight on Excellence article.

Theres no better time than now to register children for Voluntary PreKindergarten classes this summer and regular kindergarten classes this fall. Parents can register their children at local elementary schools at any time. They can complete and print online forms to bring with them to save time in the waiting line. Currently, over 3,120 children attend kindergarten in Marion County Public Schools. Forms are available under the Student Enrollment option in the Parent Information tab at www.marion.k12.fl.us. Summer VPK (Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten) classes are available at these 10 elementary schools, June 10 Aug. 1, from 7:39 a.m. 5:20PM Monday through Thursday: Belleview, College Park, Dunnellon, East Marion, Fessenden, Greenway, Madison Street, Maplewood, Marion Oaks, and Oakcrest. To participate in VPK, children must be five years old by Sept. 1, 2013, a Florida resident, and not participated in a VPK school-year program. Free breakfast and lunch are part of the VPK program each day, along with a snack. Parents must provide their own transportation for summer VPK programs and obtain a VPK Certificate of Eligibility from the Early Learning Coalition of Marion County (352-369-2315). To register, parents must provide the students original birth certificate, two proof of residency documents (NOT including a drivers license), physical and immunization records, and the childs Social Security card (optional). To attend kindergarten starting this August, the same rules apply.

For more information, contact your nearest elementary school or call the K-12 Academic Services Office at 352-236-0500 or the Title One Office at 352-671-4171. Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Benghazi disgrace It comes as no surprise the Democrats see no scandal in the Benghazi deaths. How can anyone believe Obama, Clinton and top administration officials didnt know from the very beginning that we were under a carefully planned terrorist attack? Regretfully they agreed to make up the story of the attackers motivation coming from a video. They chose to lie, over and over again, with the obvious goal of preventing political damage so close to the election. Susan Rice then spread the video rumor five different times after she was obviously told to do so. Additionally, how could the stand down order, which insured the deaths of those attempting the rescue, be implemented without Obamas knowledge? It is apparent some in the administration were aware of the situation but let them die. and there should be consequences for doing so. Our elite media, pawns of the liberal Democrats, will do all they can to minimize this tragedy for as long as they can get away with it. Can you imagine their reaction if this occurred under a Republican president? They would have talked impeachment from day one! Hopefully, we will get to the whole truth in the near future as others come forth who have first hand knowledge of the details. We simply want the truth! Wayne Rackley Ocala Negative Influence on Sports The problem of lopsided negative influence of advertising on educational institutional sports programs could be solved by administrators banning scholastic sports from advertising-sponsored television. This would require an attitudinal change that educational institutions are for the primary purpose of providing an education and not as profit centers for the institution. If it is too much an effort to travel to see the games in person, perhaps each school could help sponsor a C-Spantype operation in which fans could watch the game much as people watch in the stadium. No commentary, no ads, no up close and personal, just the game.

I have a terrible confession to get off my chest. It is a secret I have tried to hide from family and friends for years. Up to this point, I have been fairly successful in hiding this but I believe the time has come to clear the air. Having a secret is a terrible burden to bear especially around people who know you. You always run the risk that somebody is going to find out and then tell everybody and then the whole world knows your secret. The purpose of a secret is so that nobody knows. I even tried to keep this from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, which comes as close to walking on water as I have ever come. Several times, she has come close to finding out this deep seated secret of mine. Even though this is risky business, I need to make a full confession. Someone has said that confession is good for the soul, but I am not quite sure. My confession is this, and please do not hate me because of it, I love to take afternoon naps. There, I said it. I am not sure what it did for my soul but I do not feel any happier about making this confession. I am a firm believer in what some people refer to as the power nap. The problem is I live amongst a people that believe if you take a nap in the afternoon you are either very young are getting very old. The former is not the issue, and I will take issue with the latter. I must admit that there was a time in my life when I did not take naps. In fact, I had a hard time going to bed before midnight. I hated going to bed and could not wait until morning so I could jump out of bed and get back to work. Do not get me wrong, I was not a workaholic. I just liked what I was doing. I am not sure when it started but I noticed a few years ago I was not resisting going to bed like before. I did not fight it is much as I used to. If the truth were known, hopefully it wont be, as soon as my head hit the pillow the Sandman started doing his thing. It was not long before I started sneaking 40 winks in the afternoon. I distinctly remember one afternoon when my wife said, Youre not taking a nap, are you? I know lying is not a good thing, especially to your spouse. Sometimes when you are in a fixed such as I was in at that moment, the truth scampers in the opposite direction. No, I stuttered as she looked at me. I was just meditating. I guess everybody snores when theyre meditating, she said with a Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Now thats news I can really use Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder smirk on her face. From then on, it was a game trying to get in a nap without getting into trouble. I did find out that after one of my power naps I was able to do a lot more work. However, I kept that bit of information to myself. Then my whole world changed. Dont you like it when something happens proving you are right? It does not happen very often to me, when it does, I relish it like a freshly baked Apple Fritter. I happened to be watching some television news program. I confess I was half dozing and watching at the same time, but suddenly they said something that got my full salute attention. According to the story, and they cant put it on TV unless its true, right? But according to this story, research showed that there was a great deal of benefits associated with afternoon naps. That was enough for me and I, like the gentleman I am, called for my wife to come and watch this news story with me. Some things in life should be shared and this was one of them. Afternoon naps drastically reduce the danger of heart attack and improve a persons memory. So, I said to my wife after the story, what do you think of that? She smiled and looked at me and said, Well, it must work because you never forget to take a nap. I will forgive her for the hilarious laughter following her remark. Just so you know, the laughter did not come from me. I may have been smiling on the outside but I was snorting on the inside. For years, I thought taking an afternoon nap was rather beneficial. Now I have the proof and I can indulge in a daily power nap without feeling any sense of guilt at all. I love it when I have been proven right. Now I take great delight in one of my favorite Bible passages. Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls (Matthew 11:28-29). A friend of mine often says, Come apart and rest a while or youll just come apart. An afternoon nap has unashamedly become part of my daily activity. 000ES7X (352) 563-6698 (866) 860-BUGS For solutions to all your pest problems, call today! 406 N.E. 1ST ST., CRYSTAL RIVER A complete inspection of the interior and the exterior of your property.

Oak Run Travel Cancellations Our trip scheduled for July 20 to Ed Fletchers Dinner Theatre to see Cookin With Gus has been canceled as a result of notification from Ed Fletchers. They are moving from their familiar location we all loved to a new place which will not be ready until early fall. Our trip 9 to see Murder at Howard Johnsons on Oct. 5 at the new location is still scheduled. Due to residents canceling their seats on remaining Hard Rock trips, we have canceled all of our Hard Rock trips this year. These are trips numbered 2, 7, and 14. Residents have been canceling due to the policy change by Hard Rock whereby they are no longer giving free play. We are hoping to replace these cancellations with at least one trip this fall similar to our successful Mid-Week Getaway earlier this month. Look for an announcement soon.

This is not a computer problem but rather a camera issue. Many people set the pixels on their camera as small as possible so the pictures use less space on the memory card and they can get more pictures on the card. Thats fine for home pictures but not good for newspaper publication. Cameras have settings for the pixel size. The editor sets his for 640x480 which produces pictures about 20 inches wide. At this pixel setting you can only e-mail about two at a time but they come out crystal clear. Check your pixel settings and make them bigger if you are planning to submit photos to the Citizen. You dont need to make the setting at the maximum size but an intermediate size would be better than itty-bitty. If you wish to submit hard copy photos or typed or written material please take them to the Citizen office at Kingsland Plaza across from Pine Run. Your columnist cannot accept them at her house. I submit my column no later than the Sunday evening before the column appears. Therefore please send me your material by late Sunday afternoon. My e-mail address is democratcarol@deccacable.com. Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, May 17, 2013 BY RICH LOWRY President Barack Obama was proud to become the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood the other week. But not proud enough to utter the word abortion. The right to abortion is the sneakiest, most shamefaced of all American rights. It hides behind evasion and euphemism and cant. So President Obama sang a hymn of praise to Planned Parenthood at the organizations annual conference without mentioning what makes it so distinctive and controversial. He said its core principle is that women should be allowed to make their own decisions about their own health. He excoriated opponents involved in an orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to womens health. Listening to him, you could be forgiven for thinking that the country is riven by a fierce dispute over whether women should be allowed to choose their own OB-GYNs or to get cancer screenings. In his speech, the president said the word cancer seven times. About that he is happy to be forthright. Imagine if he had been similarly frank about the core of Planned Parenthoods work: In 2011, according to your annual report, your clinics or affiliates performed 330,000 abortions. Thats a lot of abortion. Over 10 years more than 3 million. Thank you, Planned Parenthood. Think of all those women who wanted to terminate their pregnancies, and you were there for them. Thats what you are about. And thats what this countryis about. Before that crowd, he might have gotten rousing applause, but talking in such honest terms would have been a gross faux pas. The unwritten rule when the left discusses abortion is that it shouldnt be called abortion, but always health or, more specifically reproductive health although abortion is the opposite of reproduction and, for one party involved, the opposite of health. The trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell has been an exercise in stripping away euphemism. He is accused of murdering babies because he allegedly didnt manage to kill them in the womb and had to finS everal years ago, I cant remember exactly when, I sat around talking with my family. It wasnt that long after 9/11, so the topic drifted to terrorism. I remember making the statement that it really wasnt necessary to fly planes into buildings or blow up people to bring the free world to its knees. All the terrorists had to do was to learn how to crash, and maybe destroy, the Internet. Please understand, my sons are all electronically savvy. Coupled with my daughter being a 25-year teacher, that makes a pretty wellrounded group. They must have gotten their talents from their mother. Anyhow, one of the three boys, I cant recall which one, immediately said that doing such a thing to the Internet would pretty much be impossible because its so vast. That conversation was a distant memory until last Tuesday, when I sat at my computer at work, angrily pushing buttons and wondering why I couldnt get e-mail or Internet service. I reset and powered up every device we had here in the office, and still the buttonpushing produced no results. Its aggravating when your email says send and receive error, and your website search produces cant find server check your connections, make sure you typed the URL correctly, etc. I do have Internet access on my phone through another company, and eventually I was able to get the message that Century Link, the provider we use for our Internet, had an outage affecting its operations across the country. It didnt make me feel any better, but at least I knew it wasnt our fault. Later, Century Link said the problem concerned some core routers that malfunctioned. At this writing, its still not known what caused the router problem. All I know is that it nearly crippled us here at this office for a full day, and caused all sorts of problems getting material ready for last weeks Citizen, which is put together on Wednesday. That made me think what would happen if all providers suffered this same outage at the same time. If youre not aware how much the Internet and various other electronic connections are used in everyday life, well, please climb out from under your rock. News from everywhere, even down the street, gets into your newspaper and onto your television via e-mail and the Internet. Your bills for things like phone, gas, electric, etc., are generated with help from the Internet and e-mails. Computers process your medication, and your doctor probably sends in your prescription to your pharmacy via e-mail. In some cases, Internet monitoring keeps people alive. Traffic cameras that control lights on highways are using the Internet to send information. Your Sun Pass on the toll roads uses the Internet, and you can electronically add to your balance without leaving home, etc., etc. Get the picture? It was working Wednesday, and we were able to get the Citizen done. However, with being down all day Tuesday, Im reasonably sure we left something, somewhere, out of the paper that should have been in. If thats the case, please accept our apologies. After the paper was done Wednesday, I went home, plopped down and clicked on the TV, which is set to automatically come on to ESPN. The first thing I saw was a message, temporarily off the air. Try again later. I found that almost all cable stations on the regular network (not the HD tier), had the same message. I called my provider, Cox Cable, and got a message that there was an outage in our area. Fortunately, I was home alone, so my angry scream wasnt heard by anyone. After a few hours, service was restored properly, but it was just another technological glitch to add to my list. Were always told to back up your data. But I wonder how much backup these big Internet providers and cable television networks have. Evidently Century Link didnt have the ability to flip a switch to another set of core routers to keep us running. Cable stations on the HD tier were still working, as were broadcast stations, but obviously it took more than a quick switch to fix the Cox problem. So I hope that last weeks outages, particularly the Internet, arent immediately forgotten. Lets find out what happened and why, and make sure it doesnt happen again. Someday, our nations security, as well as your personal health, could depend on it. Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and South Marion Citizen, both in Ocala.

I f you had any doubts about the Big Brother takeover in Washington, D.C., a couple of events in the past few days should make those doubts go away. First, there was the revelation that the IRS targeted certain conservative groups for special scrutiny. It wasnt only the Tea Party, but groups with such threatening words as Liberty in their names, among others. Yes, you have to watch out for those groups who want liberty in America. It certainly appears as if the IRS, acting under orders from someone, decided that conservative Americans might be cheating on their taxes more than liberal Americans. President Obama has expressed indignation that such a thing happened. But obviously someone, somewhere, thought this would be a good idea. We doubt if most Americans join in that thinking. Then came the note that the Justice Department, another arm of the federal government, obtained a secret subpoena and got the phone records of The Associated Press, commonly known as AP For those who arent familiar with the AP it is a news cooperative, the largest in the U.S. The AP gets a lot of its news from member newspapers, who feed stories and photos to the service, which then retransmits it to all of its members. But the AP also has its own staff of writers, editors and photographers, stationed around the world, who cover events and put them out to members, a practice commonly called putting it on the wire. Most weekly newspapers such as ours are not members of the AP since we deal primarily with local news. But our parent daily newspaper, The Citrus County Chronicle, does use AP stories. Reports state that the Justice Department was trying to find the source of what it calls leaks about a situation a while back in Yemen. Evidently, by scrutinizing the APs phone calls, it hoped to zero in on the whistleblower. This has a chilling effect on a free press, guaranteed by the First Amendment. People are willing to expose the wrongs in government by being assured of their anonymity. Reporters have gone to jail to protect their sources. Hearings should be scheduled to determine how this secret subpoena came about. Who issued the secret subpoena? Who requested it? What supervisors thought it was a good idea? These are questions Congress needs to ask, and it doesnt need to be done behind closed doors. These are just two examples of how the federal government is getting out of hand. Our ancestors fought for a free country, and a war was fought over states rights. Now there are some in government who have gotten too powerful, and are threatening those freedoms. Maybe its time for some housecleaning in Washington, not only of elected officials but of bureaucrats who work behind the scenes to erode our freedom. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Big Brothers: Justice and IRS As the Internet fails, everything stops President Obama and the Euphemism Imperative READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor ish the job outside the womb. His case is so discomfiting for liberals not only because it is such a stark picture of the seamy, money-grubbing side of abortion, but because it illustrates how slight the difference is between late-term abortion or late-term health and what nearly everyone recognizes as a crime. In a story about the case, The New York Times referred to the newborns killed by Gosnell as fetuses. The definition of a fetus according to Merriam-Webster is an unborn or unhatched vertebrate. By definition, the newborns werent fetuses; they werent unborn But the Times couldnt bring itself to use the word baby. This is the crux of the matter: If it is a baby outside the womb, why not inside the womb? If a procedure to end its life is wrong outside the womb, why isnt it wrong inside the womb? The essence of abortion is that there are two lives when you start and one when you finish. If it were your business to perform them and fight all restrictions on them, no matter how slight, you wouldnt want to be forthright and honest about it, either.Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.(c) 2013 by King Features Synd., Inc.

Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com W hile we are well into our warmer weather folks up north have just started their farming and gardening. Perhaps thats why May is known as the Carrots and Cauliflower month, according to the Internet site, Bizarre, Crazy, Silly Unknown Holidays. Sit back and vegetate on some growing stories. A sinking fund A gardening club formed an association to exchange ideas and techniques for successful vegetable gardens. Soil mixture was the main subject at the first meeting. Most members felt that loam was essential to ensure success. And after more debate it became clear other members believed in a mixture of cypress shavings and sawdust. The group eventually decided to endorse a combination of the two preferred methods. As a result of the subsequent famous quality of the vegetables grown when planted in this mixture, the club earned the honor of being the only successful Shavings and Loam Association in America. Vegetable energyProfessor Gonnen Dunnit of the universitys physics department has spent a lifetime trying to create cold fusion in the lab. Recently he used molecules from vegetables to trigger the process on the atomic level. During one attempt, it seemed that he achieved his goal when the process resulted in a spherical burst of energy. But no other scientist could duplicate his results. The Nobel Prize committee considered his results, but dismissed Professor Dunnits efforts, saying he had only created a ball of corn fusion. CornyThe word corny may have begun in the 1890s. Companies selling seeds sent their catalogs to farmers. Jokes and riddles were added to the seed catalogs, but the jokes were obvious and trite. They became knows as corn catalog jokes, then corn jokes, and eventually the adjective corny was born. Examples live on today: Why did the tomato blush? Because he saw the salad dressing. What happens when you sit on a grape? It gives a little wine. Why arent bananas ever lonely? Because they hang out in bunches. Beets them all Pete the plumber took up gardening as a hobby. He grew all the usual vegetables, but after several seasons, he became fascinated with beets. He came to think, You cant beat beets! Late in one season Pete noticed that some of his beets were wilting. He called the local county extension agent and the agronomist decided he personally needed to look over the situation. Pete could not meet with him because he had to work; he just gave the agronomist the address and a description of the house. When the extension agent drove out to examine the beets, he forgot to take the directions. He thought he remembered Petes address, but, when he arrived in the area, he found that two houses on the block fit the description. Both had gardens with lots of beets. He queried a neighbor and learned that both houses belonged to plumbers. He chose to examine the beets in the garden that seemed most wilted. Taking out his stethoscope, he carefully examined the beets. He quickly identified the problem, so returned to his office. Later, when Pete the plumber called, the agent learned he had been at the wrong address. He exclaimed, My gosh, Ive been listening to the beets of a different plumber.Too good to leave outA Harvard study says that one out of ten deaths is caused by red meat. You know what that really means? Nine out of ten deaths are due to vegetables. U.S. customs officials recently discovered 310 pounds of marijuana hidden in some frozen carrots. Thats one way to keep kids away from drugs put them in vegetables. My vegetables are upset at the way I cooked them over boiling water. Theyre really steamed. Have you heard about the garlic diet? You dont lose much weight, but from a distance your friends think you look thinner. Botanists have developed a vegetable that eliminates the need to brush your teeth. Its called bristle sprouts. No flyChecking the menu, a restaurant customer ordered a bowl of vegetable soup. After a couple of spoonfuls, he saw a circle of wetness forming under the bowl on the tablecloth. He called the waitress over and said, Its all wet down here. The bowl must be cracked. The waitress said, You ordered vegetable soup; maybe it has a leek in it. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Want to keep kids from drugs?

All contributions are subject to editing for clarity, taste, and style.Member of the Community Papers of Florida T H E HI T By David Baldacci In Baldaccis world, killing for the federal government is a noble undertaking. According to the authors protagonists, without kill after kill of the states worst enemies the world had no chance to get better. Standing by and doing nothing would mean that the monsters win. When the novel opens, Will Robie, the highly skilled assassin first introduced in The Innocent, is given an unusual assignmentto kill one of the governments own, another skilled assassin who has unbelievably gone rogue. Her name is Jessica Reel and she is nearly Robies equal as a professional assassin. So one killer is sent after another killer, which makes sense, at least to Will Robie, because killers have their own special language. The high-octane action is relentless throughout with close calls involving ambushes, bombings, and double crosses. In time the close calls begin resembling each other in a dj vu way that is one of the thrillers flaws. The other flaw is a very slow start. True to a Baldacci novel things are not always what they seemlike Reels reasons for turning. Government conspiracies are rife and too many bad guys are wearing white hats. As Reel and Robie play a game of cat and mouse before actually confronting each other, the big question hanging over every scene is Who can be trusted? Robie and Reel have survived thus far because neither trusts anyone. As he has before Baldacci once again reworks his perennial theme that absolute power corrupts absolutely. The plot takes sharp turns and twists until readers are left to wonder if this lethal, murderous duo can ever lead a normal life or have a real relationship. The author bows to his fans in The Hit by serving up all the excitement theyve come to expect and in time to take it to the beach. Assassin receives strange assignment Bookmark Pat Wellington Health care seminar at churchOn June 10 at 6:30 p.m., Christs Church of Marion Countys Health Ministry will provide an opportunity to meet Doctor Meghavi S Kosboth.

It is a privilege beyond words to be part of this vanishing experience. Each day, some 1,000 WWII veterans pass away, most of whom have never visited the memorial, which wasnt erected until 2004. Since the first Ocala Honor Flight in 2009, more than 100 veterans at a time have made the five trips to see for themselves the nations gratitude for their sacrifice at long last. About 50 medical personnel and volunteers are needed to assist these vets, who are in their late 70s and 80s. On the October 2012 flight, Hospice of Marion County employees Joanne Mancini, RN, and Donna Shaffer, volunteered to make the trip and were assigned to certain veterans. Joanne was side-by-side with Walter, a 78year-old Navy man who had served in the Pacific and is now wheelchair bound and on medication. She got special instructions from his wife from whom he had not been separated for even a day in their 64 years of marriage. When we touched down in Washington, the reception we received at the terminal was breathtaking. Not only were there military greeters, but crowds of people waving flags and saluting the veterans as they disembarked. What a way to start the tour! It only got more emotional from there. Joannes seaman wanted to visit specific areas of the memorial to find the names of his fellow servicemen. At one point he became overwhelmed, dissolving in tears of remembrance, loss and honor, as well as gratitude for the ability to be at the memorial. I, myself, had no idea the magnitude of how many fallen soldiers there were, said Joanne, and the mutual respect between all of those on the flight was instant and tangible. The tour includes several historic sites and ends with changing of the guard 28 ~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Final Honor Flight to be chronicled in movie Honor Flight: One Last Mission Sunday, May 26, 2 p.m. Appleton Museum PLEASESEEMOVIE PAGE3 PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKHammett Bowen Career Day Hammett Bowen Elementary School conducted a Career Day on Friday, May 10.

May 11 found many Marion County residents donating 1/4 ton of food for people who need it. The drive was sponsored by the letter carriers. This was done last year as it is a big help to local food pantries whose supply of food goes down fast with children for the summer. This means more food for families that do not have much to start with. More than 150 volunteers helped unload the mail trucks and sort the food into categories. Empty plastic bags were distributed to put the food in. Communities such as On Top of the World that have mail stations instead of house to house mail delivery used large bins on wheels placed at the mail stations earlier in the week.for donations. Publix stores prepackaged non-perishable food items for purchase and supplied containers and places to drop off the prepackaged food and any other items for the food drive. Food donated PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELFood was hung on mailboxes for collection. At left, some of the items gathered in.

It is a privilege beyond words to be part of this vanishing experience. Each day, some 1,000 WWII veterans pass away, most of whom have never visited the memorial, which wasnt erected until 2004. Since the first Ocala Honor Flight in 2009, more than 100 veterans at a time have made the five trips to see for themselves the nations gratitude for their sacrifice at long last. About 50 medical personnel and volunteers are needed to assist these vets, who are in their late 70s and 80s. On the October 2012 flight, Hospice of Marion County employees Joanne Mancini, RN, and Donna Shaffer, volunteered to make the trip and were assigned to certain veterans. Joanne was side-by-side with Walter, a 78year-old Navy man who had served in the Pacific and is now wheelchair bound and on medication. She got special instructions from his wife from whom he had not been separated for even a day in their 64 years of marriage. When we touched down in Washington, the reception we received at the terminal was breathtaking. Not only were there military greeters, but crowds of people waving flags and saluting the veterans as they disembarked. What a way to start the tour! It only got more emotional from there. Joannes seaman wanted to visit specific areas of the memorial to find the names of his fellow servicemen. At one point he became overwhelmed, dissolving in tears of remembrance, loss and honor, as well as gratitude for the ability to be at the memorial. I, myself, had no idea the magnitude of how many fallen soldiers there were, said Joanne, and the mutual respect between all of those on the flight was instant and tangible. The tour includes several historic sites and ends with changing of the guard28~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Final Honor Flight to be chronicled in movie Honor Flight: One Last MissionSunday, May 26, 2 p.m. Appleton Museum PLEASESEEMOVIE, PAGE3 PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKHammett Bowen Career DayHammett Bowen Elementary School conducted a Career Day on Friday, May 10.

May 11 found many Marion County residents donating 1/4 ton of food for people who need it. The drive was sponsored by the letter carriers. This was done last year as it is a big help to local food pantries whose supply of food goes down fast with children for the summer. This means more food for families that do not have much to start with. More than 150 volunteers helped unload the mail trucks and sort the food into categories. Empty plastic bags were distributed to put the food in. Communities such as On Top of the World that have mail stations instead of house to house mail delivery used large bins on wheels placed at the mail stations earlier in the week.for donations. Publix stores prepackaged non-perishable food items for purchase and supplied containers and places to drop off the prepackaged food and any other items for the food drive. Food donated PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELFood was hung on mailboxes for collection. At left, some of the items gathered in.

According to the authors protagonists, without kill after kill of the states worst enemies the world had no chance to get better. Standing by and doing nothing would mean that the monsters win. When the novel opens, Will Robie, the highly skilled assassin first introduced in The Innocent, is given an unusual assignmentto kill one of the governments own, another skilled assassin who has unbelievably gone rogue. Her name is Jessica Reel and she is nearly Robies equal as a professional assassin. So one killer is sent after another killer, which makes sense, at least to Will Robie, because killers have their own special language. The high-octane action is relentless throughout with close calls involving ambushes, bombings, and double crosses. In time the close calls begin resembling each other in a dj vu way that is one of the thrillers flaws. The other flaw is a very slow start. True to a Baldacci novel things are not always what they seemlike Reels reasons for turning. Government conspiracies are rife and too many bad guys are wearing white hats. As Reel and Robie play a game of cat and mouse before actually confronting each other, the big question hanging over every scene is Who can be trusted? Robie and Reel have survived thus far because neither trusts anyone. As he has before Baldacci once again reworks his perennial theme that absolute power corrupts absolutely. The plot takes sharp turns and twists until readers are left to wonder if this lethal, murderous duo can ever lead a normal life or have a real relationship. The author bows to his fans in The Hit by serving up all the excitement theyve come to expect and in time to take it to the beach. Assassin receives strange assignment Bookmark Pat Wellington Health care seminar at churchOn June 10 at 6:30 p.m., Christs Church of Marion Countys Health Ministry will provide an opportunity to meet Doctor Meghavi S Kosboth.

Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com While we are well into our warmer weather folks up north have just started their farming and gardening. Perhaps thats why May is known as the Carrots and Cauliflower month, according to the Internet site, Bizarre, Crazy, Silly Unknown Holidays. Sit back and vegetate on some growing stories. A sinking fundA gardening club formed an association to exchange ideas and techniques for successful vegetable gardens. Soil mixture was the main subject at the first meeting. Most members felt that loam was essential to ensure success. And after more debate it became clear other members believed in a mixture of cypress shavings and sawdust. The group eventually decided to endorse a combination of the two preferred methods. As a result of the subsequent famous quality of the vegetables grown when planted in this mixture, the club earned the honor of being the only successful Shavings and Loam Association in America.Vegetable energyProfessor Gonnen Dunnit of the universitys physics department has spent a lifetime trying to create cold fusion in the lab. Recently he used molecules from vegetables to trigger the process on the atomic level. During one attempt, it seemed that he achieved his goal when the process resulted in a spherical burst of energy. But no other scientist could duplicate his results. The Nobel Prize committee considered his results, but dismissed Professor Dunnits efforts, saying he had only created a ball of corn fusion. CornyThe word corny may have begun in the 1890s. Companies selling seeds sent their catalogs to farmers. Jokes and riddles were added to the seed catalogs, but the jokes were obvious and trite. They became knows as corn catalog jokes, then corn jokes, and eventually the adjective corny was born. Examples live on today: Why did the tomato blush? Because he saw the salad dressing. What happens when you sit on a grape? It gives a little wine. Why arent bananas ever lonely? Because they hang out in bunches.Beets them allPete the plumber took up gardening as a hobby. He grew all the usual vegetables, but after several seasons, he became fascinated with beets. He came to think, You cant beat beets! Late in one season Pete noticed that some of his beets were wilting. He called the local county extension agent and the agronomist decided he personally needed to look over the situation. Pete could not meet with him because he had to work; he just gave the agronomist the address and a description of the house. When the extension agent drove out to examine the beets, he forgot to take the directions. He thought he remembered Petes address, but, when he arrived in the area, he found that two houses on the block fit the description. Both had gardens with lots of beets. He queried a neighbor and learned that both houses belonged to plumbers. He chose to examine the beets in the garden that seemed most wilted. Taking out his stethoscope, he carefully examined the beets. He quickly identified the problem, so returned to his office. Later, when Pete the plumber called, the agent learned he had been at the wrong address. He exclaimed, My gosh, Ive been listening to the beets of a different plumber.Too good to leave outA Harvard study says that one out of ten deaths is caused by red meat. You know what that really means? Nine out of ten deaths are due to vegetables. U.S. customs officials recently discovered 310 pounds of marijuana hidden in some frozen carrots. Thats one way to keep kids away from drugs put them in vegetables. My vegetables are upset at the way I cooked them over boiling water. Theyre really steamed. Have you heard about the garlic diet? You dont lose much weight, but from a distance your friends think you look thinner. Botanists have developed a vegetable that eliminates the need to brush your teeth. Its called bristle sprouts.No flyChecking the menu, a restaurant customer ordered a bowl of vegetable soup. After a couple of spoonfuls, he saw a circle of wetness forming under the bowl on the tablecloth. He called the waitress over and said, Its all wet down here. The bowl must be cracked. The waitress said, You ordered vegetable soup; maybe it has a leek in it.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Want to keep kids from drugs?

You could find a good reason to make a change at this time. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Just when you thought you had everything planned to the smallest detail, you get some news that could unsettle things. But a timely explanation helps put it all back on track. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Home and work continue to compete for your attention. But you handle it well by giving each its proper due. Someone you trust offers valuable advice. Listen to it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Unsettling news creates a difficult but not impossible situation. Continue to follow your planned routine, but keep your mind open to a possible change down the line. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Lick your wounded pride if you like, but its a better idea to find out why your suggestions were rejected. What you learn could help you deal with an upcoming situation. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Feeling a bit listless? No wonder. You might be pushing too hard to finish everything on your to-do list. Cutting it could help get your energy levels up. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Taking time out of your busy schedule might be the best way to handle that sensitive private matter. It will help reassure everyone involved about your priorities. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Insist on full disclosure by all parties before agreeing to be part of a great deal. What you learn should help you decide whether to go with it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your decision to protect the secret that was entrusted to you might irk some people. But it also wins you the admiration of those who value trust and loyalty. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Creative activities take on a practical approach as you realize you might be able to market your work. Ask for advice from someone experienced in this area. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) If youre suddenly a bit unsure about your decision, ask trusted colleagues and/or friends or family members for suggestions that could help resolve your doubts. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A workplace situation could get stormy. But stay on course until theres a solution that meets with everyones approval, and things can finally calm down.

Oak Run Travel Cancellations Our trip scheduled for July 20 to Ed Fletchers Dinner Theatre to see Cookin With Gus has been canceled as a result of notification from Ed Fletchers. They are moving from their familiar location we all loved to a new place which will not be ready until early fall. Our trip 9 to see Murder at Howard Johnsons on Oct. 5 at the new location is still scheduled. Due to residents canceling their seats on remaining Hard Rock trips, we have canceled all of our Hard Rock trips this year. These are trips numbered 2, 7, and 14. Residents have been canceling due to the policy change by Hard Rock whereby they are no longer giving free play. We are hoping to replace these cancellations with at least one trip this fall similar to our successful Mid-Week Getaway earlier this month. Look for an announcement soon.Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn May 9 we played even holes and full handicap. Flight A 1st. Elsa Berbig, tied in 2nd. Charlotte Green and Patty Waddell; Flight B 1st.

Patty Waddell had a birdie on #16.Carol Anns Corner The editor has been having problems with people submitting pictures via e-mail that are very small. This is not a computer problem but rather a camera issue. Many people set the pixels on their camera as small as possible so the pictures use less space on the memory card and they can get more pictures on the card. Thats fine for home pictures but not good for newspaper publication. Cameras have settings for the pixel size. The editor sets his for 640x480 which produces pictures about 20 inches wide. At this pixel setting you can only e-mail about two at a time but they come out crystal clear. Check your pixel settings and make them bigger if you are planning to submit photos to the Citizen. You dont need to make the setting at the maximum size but an intermediate size would be better than itty-bitty. If you wish to submit hard copy photos or typed or written material please take them to the Citizen office at Kingsland Plaza across from Pine Run. Your columnist cannot accept them at her house. I submit my column no later than the Sunday evening before the column appears. Therefore please send me your material by late Sunday afternoon. My e-mail address is democratcarol@deccacable.com. Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 17, 2013 BY RICH LOWRY President Barack Obama was proud to become the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood the other week. But not proud enough to utter the word abortion. The right to abortion is the sneakiest, most shamefaced of all American rights. It hides behind evasion and euphemism and cant. So President Obama sang a hymn of praise to Planned Parenthood at the organizations annual conference without mentioning what makes it so distinctive and controversial. He said its core principle is that women should be allowed to make their own decisions about their own health. He excoriated opponents involved in an orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to womens health. Listening to him, you could be forgiven for thinking that the country is riven by a fierce dispute over whether women should be allowed to choose their own OB-GYNs or to get cancer screenings. In his speech, the president said the word cancer seven times. About that he is happy to be forthright. Imagine if he had been similarly frank about the core of Planned Parenthoods work: In 2011, according to your annual report, your clinics or affiliates performed 330,000 abortions. Thats a lot of abortion. Over 10 years more than 3 million. Thank you, Planned Parenthood. Think of all those women who wanted to terminate their pregnancies, and you were there for them. Thats what you are about. And thats what this countryis about. Before that crowd, he might have gotten rousing applause, but talking in such honest terms would have been a gross faux pas. The unwritten rule when the left discusses abortion is that it shouldnt be called abortion, but always health or, more specifically reproductive health although abortion is the opposite of reproduction and, for one party involved, the opposite of health. The trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell has been an exercise in stripping away euphemism. He is accused of murdering babies because he allegedly didnt manage to kill them in the womb and had to finSeveral years ago, I cant remember exactly when, I sat around talking with my family. It wasnt that long after 9/11, so the topic drifted to terrorism. I remember making the statement that it really wasnt necessary to fly planes into buildings or blow up people to bring the free world to its knees. All the terrorists had to do was to learn how to crash, and maybe destroy, the Internet. Please understand, my sons are all electronically savvy. Coupled with my daughter being a 25-year teacher, that makes a pretty wellrounded group. They must have gotten their talents from their mother. Anyhow, one of the three boys, I cant recall which one, immediately said that doing such a thing to the Internet would pretty much be impossible because its so vast. That conversation was a distant memory until last Tuesday, when I sat at my computer at work, angrily pushing buttons and wondering why I couldnt get e-mail or Internet service. I reset and powered up every device we had here in the office, and still the buttonpushing produced no results. Its aggravating when your email says send and receive error, and your website search produces cant find server check your connections, make sure you typed the URL correctly, etc. I do have Internet access on my phone through another company, and eventually I was able to get the message that Century Link, the provider we use for our Internet, had an outage affecting its operations across the country. It didnt make me feel any better, but at least I knew it wasnt our fault. Later, Century Link said the problem concerned some core routers that malfunctioned. At this writing, its still not known what caused the router problem. All I know is that it nearly crippled us here at this office for a full day, and caused all sorts of problems getting material ready for last weeks Citizen, which is put together on Wednesday. That made me think what would happen if all providers suffered this same outage at the same time. If youre not aware how much the Internet and various other electronic connections are used in everyday life, well, please climb out from under your rock. News from everywhere, even down the street, gets into your newspaper and onto your television via e-mail and the Internet. Your bills for things like phone, gas, electric, etc., are generated with help from the Internet and e-mails. Computers process your medication, and your doctor probably sends in your prescription to your pharmacy via e-mail. In some cases, Internet monitoring keeps people alive. Traffic cameras that control lights on highways are using the Internet to send information. Your Sun Pass on the toll roads uses the Internet, and you can electronically add to your balance without leaving home, etc., etc. Get the picture? It was working Wednesday, and we were able to get the Citizen done. However, with being down all day Tuesday, Im reasonably sure we left something, somewhere, out of the paper that should have been in. If thats the case, please accept our apologies. After the paper was done Wednesday, I went home, plopped down and clicked on the TV, which is set to automatically come on to ESPN. The first thing I saw was a message, temporarily off the air. Try again later. I found that almost all cable stations on the regular network (not the HD tier), had the same message. I called my provider, Cox Cable, and got a message that there was an outage in our area. Fortunately, I was home alone, so my angry scream wasnt heard by anyone. After a few hours, service was restored properly, but it was just another technological glitch to add to my list. Were always told to back up your data. But I wonder how much backup these big Internet providers and cable television networks have. Evidently Century Link didnt have the ability to flip a switch to another set of core routers to keep us running. Cable stations on the HD tier were still working, as were broadcast stations, but obviously it took more than a quick switch to fix the Cox problem. So I hope that last weeks outages, particularly the Internet, arent immediately forgotten. Lets find out what happened and why, and make sure it doesnt happen again. Someday, our nations security, as well as your personal health, could depend on it.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and South Marion Citizen, both in Ocala.

If you had any doubts about the Big Brother takeover in Washington, D.C., a couple of events in the past few days should make those doubts go away. First, there was the revelation that the IRS targeted certain conservative groups for special scrutiny. It wasnt only the Tea Party, but groups with such threatening words as Liberty in their names, among others. Yes, you have to watch out for those groups who want liberty in America. It certainly appears as if the IRS, acting under orders from someone, decided that conservative Americans might be cheating on their taxes more than liberal Americans. President Obama has expressed indignation that such a thing happened. But obviously someone, somewhere, thought this would be a good idea. We doubt if most Americans join in that thinking. Then came the note that the Justice Department, another arm of the federal government, obtained a secret subpoena and got the phone records of The Associated Press, commonly known as AP For those who arent familiar with the AP it is a news cooperative, the largest in the U.S. The AP gets a lot of its news from member newspapers, who feed stories and photos to the service, which then retransmits it to all of its members. But the AP also has its own staff of writers, editors and photographers, stationed around the world, who cover events and put them out to members, a practice commonly called putting it on the wire. Most weekly newspapers such as ours are not members of the AP, since we deal primarily with local news. But our parent daily newspaper, The Citrus County Chronicle, does use AP stories. Reports state that the Justice Department was trying to find the source of what it calls leaks about a situation a while back in Yemen. Evidently, by scrutinizing the APs phone calls, it hoped to zero in on the whistleblower. This has a chilling effect on a free press, guaranteed by the First Amendment. People are willing to expose the wrongs in government by being assured of their anonymity. Reporters have gone to jail to protect their sources. Hearings should be scheduled to determine how this secret subpoena came about. Who issued the secret subpoena? Who requested it? What supervisors thought it was a good idea? These are questions Congress needs to ask, and it doesnt need to be done behind closed doors. These are just two examples of how the federal government is getting out of hand. Our ancestors fought for a free country, and a war was fought over states rights. Now there are some in government who have gotten too powerful, and are threatening those freedoms. Maybe its time for some housecleaning in Washington, not only of elected officials but of bureaucrats who work behind the scenes to erode our freedom. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Big Brothers: Justice and IRS As the Internet fails, everything stops President Obama and the Euphemism Imperative READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor ish the job outside the womb. His case is so discomfiting for liberals not only because it is such a stark picture of the seamy, money-grubbing side of abortion, but because it illustrates how slight the difference is between late-term abortion or late-term health and what nearly everyone recognizes as a crime. In a story about the case, The New York Times referred to the newborns killed by Gosnell as fetuses. The definition of a fetus according to Merriam-Webster is an unborn or unhatched vertebrate. By definition, the newborns werent fetuses; they werent unborn. But the Times couldnt bring itself to use the word baby. This is the crux of the matter: If it is a baby outside the womb, why not inside the womb? If a procedure to end its life is wrong outside the womb, why isnt it wrong inside the womb? The essence of abortion is that there are two lives when you start and one when you finish. If it were your business to perform them and fight all restrictions on them, no matter how slight, you wouldnt want to be forthright and honest about it, either.Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.(c) 2013 by King Features Synd., Inc.

Ihave a terrible confession to get off my chest. It is a secret I have tried to hide from family and friends for years. Up to this point, I have been fairly successful in hiding this but I believe the time has come to clear the air. Having a secret is a terrible burden to bear especially around people who know you. You always run the risk that somebody is going to find out and then tell everybody and then the whole world knows your secret. The purpose of a secret is so that nobody knows. I even tried to keep this from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, which comes as close to walking on water as I have ever come. Several times, she has come close to finding out this deep seated secret of mine. Even though this is risky business, I need to make a full confession. Someone has said that confession is good for the soul, but I am not quite sure. My confession is this, and please do not hate me because of it, I love to take afternoon naps. There, I said it. I am not sure what it did for my soul but I do not feel any happier about making this confession. I am a firm believer in what some people refer to as the power nap. The problem is I live amongst a people that believe if you take a nap in the afternoon you are either very young are getting very old. The former is not the issue, and I will take issue with the latter. I must admit that there was a time in my life when I did not take naps. In fact, I had a hard time going to bed before midnight. I hated going to bed and could not wait until morning so I could jump out of bed and get back to work. Do not get me wrong, I was not a workaholic. I just liked what I was doing. I am not sure when it started but I noticed a few years ago I was not resisting going to bed like before. I did not fight it is much as I used to. If the truth were known, hopefully it wont be, as soon as my head hit the pillow the Sandman started doing his thing. It was not long before I started sneaking 40 winks in the afternoon. I distinctly remember one afternoon when my wife said, Youre not taking a nap, are you? I know lying is not a good thing, especially to your spouse. Sometimes when you are in a fixed such as I was in at that moment, the truth scampers in the opposite direction. No, I stuttered as she looked at me. I was just meditating. I guess everybody snores when theyre meditating, she said with aFriday, May 17, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Now thats news I can really use Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder smirk on her face. From then on, it was a game trying to get in a nap without getting into trouble. I did find out that after one of my power naps I was able to do a lot more work. However, I kept that bit of information to myself. Then my whole world changed. Dont you like it when something happens proving you are right? It does not happen very often to me, when it does, I relish it like a freshly baked Apple Fritter. I happened to be watching some television news program. I confess I was half dozing and watching at the same time, but suddenly they said something that got my full salute attention. According to the story, and they cant put it on TV unless its true, right? But according to this story, research showed that there was a great deal of benefits associated with afternoon naps. That was enough for me and I, like the gentleman I am, called for my wife to come and watch this news story with me. Some things in life should be shared and this was one of them. Afternoon naps drastically reduce the danger of heart attack and improve a persons memory. So, I said to my wife after the story, what do you think of that? She smiled and looked at me and said, Well, it must work because you never forget to take a nap. I will forgive her for the hilarious laughter following her remark. Just so you know, the laughter did not come from me. I may have been smiling on the outside but I was snorting on the inside. For years, I thought taking an afternoon nap was rather beneficial. Now I have the proof and I can indulge in a daily power nap without feeling any sense of guilt at all. I love it when I have been proven right. Now I take great delight in one of my favorite Bible passages. Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls (Matthew 11:28-29). A friend of mine often says, Come apart and rest a while or youll just come apart. An afternoon nap has unashamedly become part of my daily activity. 000ES7X (352) 563-6698 (866) 860-BUGS For solutions to all your pest problems, call today! 406 N.E. 1ST ST., CRYSTAL RIVER A complete inspection of the interior and the exterior of your property.

Theres no better time than now to register children for Voluntary PreKindergarten classes this summer and regular kindergarten classes this fall. Parents can register their children at local elementary schools at any time. They can complete and print online forms to bring with them to save time in the waiting line. Currently, over 3,120 children attend kindergarten in Marion County Public Schools. Forms are available under the Student Enrollment option in the Parent Information tab at www.marion.k12.fl.us. Summer VPK (Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten) classes are available at these 10 elementary schools, June 10 Aug. 1, from 7:39 a.m. 5:20PM Monday through Thursday: Belleview, College Park, Dunnellon, East Marion, Fessenden, Greenway, Madison Street, Maplewood, Marion Oaks, and Oakcrest. To participate in VPK, children must be five years old by Sept. 1, 2013, a Florida resident, and not participated in a VPK school-year program. Free breakfast and lunch are part of the VPK program each day, along with a snack. Parents must provide their own transportation for summer VPK programs and obtain a VPK Certificate of Eligibility from the Early Learning Coalition of Marion County (352-369-2315). To register, parents must provide the students original birth certificate, two proof of residency documents (NOT including a drivers license), physical and immunization records, and the childs Social Security card (optional). To attend kindergarten starting this August, the same rules apply. To register for kindergarten, parents should complete the online form mentioned earlier, print it out, and bring it with them to their neighborhood school. For more information, contact your nearest elementary school or call the K-12 Academic Services Office at 352-236-0500 or the Title One Office at 352-671-4171. Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Benghazi disgraceIt comes as no surprise the Democrats see no scandal in the Benghazi deaths. How can anyone believe Obama, Clinton and top administration officials didnt know from the very beginning that we were under a carefully planned terrorist attack? Regretfully they agreed to make up the story of the attackers motivation coming from a video. They chose to lie, over and over again, with the obvious goal of preventing political damage so close to the election. Susan Rice then spread the video rumor five different times after she was obviously told to do so. Additionally, how could the stand down order, which insured the deaths of those attempting the rescue, be implemented without Obamas knowledge? It is apparent some in the administration were aware of the situation but let them die. and there should be consequences for doing so. Our elite media, pawns of the liberal Democrats, will do all they can to minimize this tragedy for as long as they can get away with it. Can you imagine their reaction if this occurred under a Republican president? They would have talked impeachment from day one! Hopefully, we will get to the whole truth in the near future as others come forth who have first hand knowledge of the details. We simply want the truth! Wayne Rackley OcalaNegative Influence on Sports The problem of lopsided negative influence of advertising on educational institutional sports programs could be solved by administrators banning scholastic sports from advertising-sponsored television. This would require an attitudinal change that educational institutions are for the primary purpose of providing an education and not as profit centers for the institution. If it is too much an effort to travel to see the games in person, perhaps each school could help sponsor a C-Spantype operation in which fans could watch the game much as people watch in the stadium. No commentary, no ads, no up close and personal, just the game.

Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Many of us are familiar with the story of the Garden of Eden, the beautiful paradise where the Creator put the first humans, Adam and Eve. The story is told in the Book of Genesis that Eve offered a fruit to Adam from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. And in this modern age of the computer, the fruit has also become the logo of a computer company. Are the two ideas related? Some people feel that this fruit was an apple, hence the term Adams Apple referring to the prominence of the neck in males caused by the angle of the thyroid cartilage surrounding the larynx. It has been thought that a piece of the so-called fruit, i.e. apple got caught in Adams throat, hence the rather romantic name for this common feature. But was it really an apple or a misreading of the text? The text itself says the word pree which just means fruit but it was the fanciful artistic licenses of the Middle Ages that depicted Eve holding out an apple to Adam. Had the fruit been an apple, the text would have rendered the word tapuach but like many legends and misconceptions through the ages, the icon of the apple seemed to be a depiction of the forbidden fruit. Jewish sages, of course, have their own interpretations. There are varying opinions of the subject in both the Talmud and the Midrash. (commentary) Rabbis Nechemia and Jose both believed that the fruit was a fig for Adam and Eve repaired the misdeed of their sin by covering their bodies with fig leaves to cover their nakedness. They accomplished this by sewing the rather large leaves of the fig tree into a form of a covering for strategic sexual parts. I kind of like this interpretation because the fig tree is one of the species mentioned in the Torah as symbolic of the Land of Israel and it is featured in the Bible in beautiful quotes by the prophets in their visions of a peacetime when all will sit under their vine and fig tree in peace. As the old joke goes, with three Jews you get four opinions. Throw a few rabbis into the mix, and even more controversy arises. Rabbi Abba of Akko believed the fruit was a citron, a kind of lemon-like fruit used for ritual purposes on the harvest festival of Sukkot. In the Talmud, Rabbi Judah ben Illai attributes the fruit to be the grape since it is wine that causes humans so much trouble. Rabbi Meirs opinion was that it was wheat. This idea came from the idea that when a person lacks knowledge it means that they have not eaten from the bread of wheat. How wheat could be mistaken for a tree was explained that the wheat in the Garden of Eden grew as lofty as the cedars of Lebanon. While bread may be the staff of life, I do believe that this interpretation is way off base. I can hardly believe that a cultivated crop like wheat would have been growing in the Garden of Eden in such lush abundance. It is not Jewish opinion that the forbidden fruit was an apple. It might have been a fig, grapes, citron or wheat according to Jewish commentary sources. As for the computer logo, it was said that Steve Jobs, founder of Apple Computers worked on a farm in Oregon where he came up with a name he thought was simple and would have no copyright restrictions. A music lover, it is also thought he was influenced by the recording label for the Beatles which was apple. Whatever the case, this column could not have been written without that Apple and there is surely much to gain by using a computer to learn about good and evil. As for me, Ill take a nice, crisp Pink Lady, fresh off the tree from North Carolina. A tree grew in Eden Judis Journal Judi Siegal Moving out of Schweinfurt, Tuckey and the rest of his regiment advanced towards Furth and Nuremberg; the very cradle of Nazism. Five divisions were combined to make the assault on Furth with E Company and the 222 leading the way. An estimated 5000 German soldiers surrendered following a bitter battle. A little known fact that Tuckeys letters revealed was the vast amount of suicides that took place during the early months of 1945. As the Nazis learned of their impending defeat many decided to take their own lives rather than live with the reprisals that would come from those they had vanquished. In many cases, whole families took themselves out rather than face punitive actions by either a court or their neighbors. Marching on, the 222 became aware of a prison camp in a town called Dachau. Tuckeys battalion was sent to investigate and what they found while not described in detail by Gary has been well documented in many other historical accounts. Many of the six million Jews exterminated by the Nazis were killed at the camp in Dachau. Above the entrance way in wrought iron was the lying words, Arbeit macht frei (Work will make you free). From many miles away, there was a stench in the air that increased the closer they came to the city. If nothing else, this gives evidence that the people living in the towns and surrounding villages must have known what was happening in these hell holes of human suffering. Ascribing the reports of these concentration camps and the atrocities that were taking place in them to Propaganda, Tuckey on that day in Dachau found himself face to face with reality. It was a sickening moment for him and those with him. In his own words he speaks of the death camp: Only after viewing the indescribable conditions of concentrations camps, PW cages, interment prisons, etc. have we finally realized the necessity of the four months of hell weve experienced in combat with an inhuman race of men. Tuckey carried the memories and weight of his war time experience with him. He did not share his experiences with others as I said before but later in life he suffered nightmares. He would tell his parents, I have enough souvenirs in the back of my mind to last the rest of my life. For 26 years, Gary Tuckey stayed in the Army. He was commissioned and worked his way to Lieutenant Colonel before his retirement. In addition to the Second World War, LTC Tuckey also saw service in the war in Vietnam having been deployed to that location on two occasions. He had medals and ribbons too numerous to mention in this article and many artifacts and memorabilia items but more importantly, he felt a sense of having been both a protector and an honorable man. For Thom, who is also a very successful Army officer, Garys military legacy was one of always taking care of his troops and getting along well with those who worked with and for him. It was a lesson Thom learned and lived well. What Gary left for you and me is a nation that did the honorable and correct thing in the face of nearly insurmountable odds. We took a terrible evil from mankind at a cost of lives that staggers the imagination and freed much of world. On this Memorial Day, we at Cherrywood will honor patriots such as Gary Tuckey who passed away last year. Our heads will bow in a moment of silence; a wreath will be placed in an honored place; our flags will fly at half staff. From this outward showing of honor and respect I can only pray that we commit ourselves to ridding the world of hate and totalitarianism with the same courage and valor as those who went before us.

This fun non-sanctioned league has been going for many years and is enjoyed by scores of our residents. There were highlights like Howard Mayberry bowling a 635 series that included a 253 game while encumbered by a special mask required for a medical condition. Howard inspired many of his friends and teammates. Another bit of excitement came on the last day of the season when the first place team was decided. There were many more individual and team accomplishments this season. If there were any low spots they came after the season ended. For many years Sandee Spencer and Fran Hall have been in charge of the league. Sandee as president has guided and directed the teams and their players while Fran has handled all of the finances for the league. For personal reasons, they have both decided to step away from these responsibilities for a while. Under Sandee and Frans leadership and with the assistance of all of our bowlers, the Veterans Club was able to raise over $1,500 last October for its charity projects. Along with all the bowlers we thank these two wonderful ladies for all they accomplished and the great services they provided. If you would like to volunteer to take an office with the bowling league or if you would like to sign up for next season, contact Geri in the office at 352-237-1675.

I take the liberty of sharing this with you, my fellow readers, because the subject of the article, Gary Tuckey, was a member of our community whose wife Virginia still resides in Cherrywood. Thom Tuckey, Garys son and also the former Garrison Commander of Fort Gordon had a keen interest in finding out about his fathers experiences in World War II. Like many combat veterans of his day, Gary never spoke of his experiences during the war except in generalities. Gary served along side one particular soldier by the name of Howard Hall. Howards granddaughter discovered some letters that were written by Gary along with some of her grandfathers memorabilia. Thom was notified and shared some of the information in the Fort Gordon article. The words of the letters are concise and not very dramatic yet they convey the emotion and loneliness that only a soldier or sailor in combat zones can relate to. One letter in particular talks of the loss of Garys squad leader. That man had also been Tuckeys roommate at college and close friend. Another letter speaks about six months of constant combat during the Battle of the Bulge and the long trek to Germany that followed. Being a mortar crew chief at that time in history was a rugged job; Gary witnessed all of the horrors of war. As Tuckeys outfit, E Company of the 222 Infantry Regiment, approached the German city of Wurzburg, he witnessed the first of many atrocities. The German Army blew up a bridge that led into the town. U.S. Army Engineers under the cover of smoke generators built another. When American troops began to advance into the town, many German soldiers attempted to surrender only to be shot by SS troops. Following the hard won victory in Wurzburg, the 222 pushed toward the town of Schweinfurt, Germany. Schweinfurt was a center for producing ball bearings for the entire German Reich and was the target of the Eighth Air Force for many years. It was a main target of the bombers and they suffered horrendous losses trying to destroy this key city. Fighting their way into Germany, Tuckey recalls in his letters the huge blow to morale that the death of Franklin Roosevelt was. The man who had led the United States war effort died before the final victory causing a deep sense of loss to the troops in the field.

Veterans Club meetingAt 2 p.m. on June 6, the Cherrywood Veterans Club will hold its monthly meeting. Our guests this month are from the Ritz House in Ocala. You will have a chance to speak with the administrators such as Al Morrison and a couple of veterans who are benefiting from the services provided by Ritz House. Veterans club meetings are always open to the public. After the meeting enjoy free liquid refreshments on the patio. Honor FlightOn Thursday, May 23 we have a date. At 7 p.m. everyone is encouraged to meet at the Cherrywood clubhouse to car pool down to the Ocala International Airport in order to welcome home the last Honor Flight. Honor Flight was a program designed to pay homage to those of the Greatest Generation that are still with us. World War II veterans were flown free of charge to Washington D.C. to see first hand the monument built in their honor and to be thanked by various dignitaries. It was a very successful project and Marion County provided the third most participants in the United States. Now those flights are coming to an end but we want the veterans on board this final flight to know just how much we appreciate all that they did for us and for this great Nation of ours. If youd like to be with us, please contact Bill Mahar at 352-873-1341. We suggest that everyone bring a lawn chair just in case there is a delay in the flight but none is anticipated. Everyone will receive a flag to hold while greeting these special veterans and all will have a chance to cheer for these heros. An example of the experiences of these World War II vets is featured in the Spotlight on Excellence article at the end of this column. Wont you please join us in this worthy endeavor? A special Thank YouSheila Hockenberry was lying in her bed recovering from a medication reaction that sent her blood pressure dangerously high. She saw a brilliant flash of lightening and heard a loud clap of thunder; wind whirled around her house and she heard an earsplitting cracking crash. Painfully she rose to see what was happening. Looking out the window, she saw one of her huge trees totally down; uprooted and lying across the roadway. As you might imagine, the nearly helpless woman was horrified. Along with the tree being down, the houses water pipes had been torn up so she had no water. Immediately, there was a pounding at her door and her phone began ringing. It was her neighbors coming to her rescue. In the hours and days that followed Sheila received a great deal of assistance from Robert Metzer; Pat McKenna; On Thursday, May 30 at 11 a.m., the Cherrywood Veterans Club will observe the most solemn holiday of the calendar year, Memorial Day. While the rest of the country will celebrate on Monday, the Veterans of Cherrywood have chosen to keep the traditional day of observance. Memorial Day was instituted shortly after the Civil War as a time to decorate the graves of fallen soldiers with flowers and to take time to remember their sacrifice. Because of this, originally it was called Decoration Day. Following the First World War, the day was set aside to remember all of those who died in war for this country. In 1915, in answer to the poem In Flanders Fields, Moina Michael wrote the following: We cherish too, the Poppy Red That grows on fields were valor led; It seems to signal to the skies That the blood of heroes never dies. Ms. Michaels also began the movement to sell the bright red flowers to benefit disabled soldiers and sailors. Thus today, the poppy is the symbol of all veterans who have sacrificed and in honor of that, Poppies will be on sale prior to and after the ceremony. Proceeds will go to the VFW Post. At 11 a.m. the Cherrywood observance will begin in front of the clubhouse with the presentation of the flag. The National Anthem will be played followed by our guest speaker, retired Navy Chief Steven Jacobs. Chief Jacobs is head of the Ocala Veterans Services Office. Following the guest speaker, the Armed Forces medley will be played to salute the veterans of all branches of the U.S. military. Trude and Skip Smith, accompanied by Veterans Club President Bill Mahar, will present a wreath at the monument and Taps will be sounded. The conclusion will be the retiring of the colors by our Color Guard. Please note that this service is free and open to all who wish to attend. Immediately following the Memorial Day service, a picnic lunch will begin. Our picnic celebrates the American way of life that our heroes died for and will take place in the clubhouse right after the ceremonies have ended. Hamburgers and hot dogs; beans and cole slaw; iced tea and lemonade will all be available and as usual, if you want to bring your own beverage, you are welcome to do that. This luncheon always enjoys great support as it is a fund raiser for the Veterans Club. Tickets for the picnic are $7 each and must be presented prior to being served in the Clubhouse. You can obtain tickets from Geri in our Clubhouse office during normal business hours. All are encouraged to attend both the service and the picnic. At noon, the flag will be raised to full staff in a short ceremony. Please plan to attend our service and picnic to support your veterans as they continue to serve the community and veterans in need.Newcomers coffee hourIf you are new to the Cherrywood Community, we urge you to come out to the informal coffee hour on Saturday, May 18 at 10 a.m. This meet and greet will allow you to obtain maps and other handouts that will make your transition to Ocala much smoother and more enjoyable.

From cooking meals to repairing damaged pipes; from lawn care to tree removal these four people as well as others, helped Sheila survive a very frightening experience. When Sheila called to ask me to put this article in the paper to thank her neighbors, I was very happy to oblige but I cant say I was surprised. This is the type of behavior that exemplifies the family atmosphere here at Cherrywood. To all who helped Sheila, she sends a heartfelt Thank you.Bowlers end seasonOur Cherrywood Monday morning bowling league ended its season two weeks ago and these dedicated high rollers will now take the summer off to prepare for next years season. This fun non-sanctioned league has been going for many years and is enjoyed by scores of our residents. There were highlights like Howard Mayberry bowling a 635 series that included a 253 game while encumbered by a special mask required for a medical condition. Howard inspired many of his friends and teammates. Another bit of excitement came on the last day of the season when the first place team was decided. There were many more individual and team accomplishments this season. If there were any low spots they came after the season ended. For many years Sandee Spencer and Fran Hall have been in charge of the league. Sandee as president has guided and directed the teams and their players while Fran has handled all of the finances for the league. For personal reasons, they have both decided to step away from these responsibilities for a while. Under Sandee and Frans leadership and with the assistance of all of our bowlers, the Veterans Club was able to raise over $1,500 last October for its charity projects. Along with all the bowlers we thank these two wonderful ladies for all they accomplished and the great services they provided. If you would like to volunteer to take an office with the bowling league or if you would like to sign up for next season, contact Geri in the office at 352-237-1675.

If youve been following the articles in your Citizen you know what a fantastic job Dick Richards does in bringing you a night of musical excellence. Over the past few months this event has only increased in popularity and if you come out between 5:30 and 9 in the evening you will see what the buzz is all about. Musicians in all ranges of talent and a wide variety of instruments play songs of every genre. Youll hear standards and polkas; pop and old favorites; novelty tunes and everything else at these concerts. Professionals who have played with some of the greatest stars of their day; amateurs just learning their instruments all combine to make up the great entertainment that is Accordion Club night. Bring your snacks, beverages, friends and neighbors and then come out for a beautiful evening of first rate musical entertainment.Spotlight on excellenceAs Memorial Day approaches, and we prepare to pay homage to those who gave their all for our freedoms, I was given an article from a Fort Gordon, Georgia, online magazine. I take the liberty of sharing this with you, my fellow readers, because the subject of the article, Gary Tuckey, was a member of our community whose wife Virginia still resides in Cherrywood. Thom Tuckey, Garys son and also the former Garrison Commander of Fort Gordon had a keen interest in finding out about his fathers experiences in World War II. Like many combat veterans of his day, Gary never spoke of his experiences during the war except in generalities. Gary served along side one particular soldier by the name of Howard Hall. Howards granddaughter discovered some letters that were written by Gary along with some of her grandfathers memorabilia. Thom was notified and shared some of the information in the Fort Gordon article. The words of the letters are concise and not very dramatic yet they convey the emotion and loneliness that only a soldier or sailor in combat zones can relate to. One letter in particular talks of the loss of Garys squad leader. That man had also been Tuckeys roommate at college and close friend. Another letter speaks about six months of constant combat during the Battle of the Bulge and the long trek to Germany that followed. Being a mortar crew chief at that time in history was a rugged job; Gary witnessed all of the horrors of war. As Tuckeys outfit, E Company of the 222 Infantry Regiment, approached the German city of Wurzburg, he witnessed the first of many atrocities. The German Army blew up a bridge that led into the town. U.S. Army Engineers under the cover of smoke generators built another. When American troops began to advance into the town, many German soldiers attempted to surrender only to be shot by SS troops. Following the hard won victory in Wurzburg, the 222 pushed toward the town of Schweinfurt, Germany. Schweinfurt was a center for producing ball bearings for the entire German Reich and was the target of the Eighth Air Force for many years. It was a main target of the bombers and they suffered horrendous losses trying to destroy this key city. Fighting their way into Germany, Tuckey recalls in his letters the huge blow to morale that the death of Franklin Roosevelt was. The man who had led the United States war effort died before the final victory causing a deep sense of loss to the troops in the field.

Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Many of us are familiar with the story of the Garden of Eden, the beautiful paradise where the Creator put the first humans, Adam and Eve. The story is told in the Book of Genesis that Eve offered a fruit to Adam from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. And in this modern age of the computer, the fruit has also become the logo of a computer company. Are the two ideas related? Some people feel that this fruit was an apple, hence the term Adams Apple referring to the prominence of the neck in males caused by the angle of the thyroid cartilage surrounding the larynx. It has been thought that a piece of the so-called fruit, i.e. apple got caught in Adams throat, hence the rather romantic name for this common feature. But was it really an apple or a misreading of the text? The text itself says the word pree which just means fruit but it was the fanciful artistic licenses of the Middle Ages that depicted Eve holding out an apple to Adam. Had the fruit been an apple, the text would have rendered the word tapuach but like many legends and misconceptions through the ages, the icon of the apple seemed to be a depiction of the forbidden fruit. Jewish sages, of course, have their own interpretations. There are varying opinions of the subject in both the Talmud and the Midrash. (commentary) Rabbis Nechemia and Jose both believed that the fruit was a fig for Adam and Eve repaired the misdeed of their sin by covering their bodies with fig leaves to cover their nakedness. They accomplished this by sewing the rather large leaves of the fig tree into a form of a covering for strategic sexual parts. I kind of like this interpretation because the fig tree is one of the species mentioned in the Torah as symbolic of the Land of Israel and it is featured in the Bible in beautiful quotes by the prophets in their visions of a peacetime when all will sit under their vine and fig tree in peace. As the old joke goes, with three Jews you get four opinions. Throw a few rabbis into the mix, and even more controversy arises. Rabbi Abba of Akko believed the fruit was a citron, a kind of lemon-like fruit used for ritual purposes on the harvest festival of Sukkot. In the Talmud, Rabbi Judah ben Illai attributes the fruit to be the grape since it is wine that causes humans so much trouble. Rabbi Meirs opinion was that it was wheat. This idea came from the idea that when a person lacks knowledge it means that they have not eaten from the bread of wheat. How wheat could be mistaken for a tree was explained that the wheat in the Garden of Eden grew as lofty as the cedars of Lebanon. While bread may be the staff of life, I do believe that this interpretation is way off base. I can hardly believe that a cultivated crop like wheat would have been growing in the Garden of Eden in such lush abundance. It is not Jewish opinion that the forbidden fruit was an apple. It might have been a fig, grapes, citron or wheat according to Jewish commentary sources. As for the computer logo, it was said that Steve Jobs, founder of Apple Computers worked on a farm in Oregon where he came up with a name he thought was simple and would have no copyright restrictions. A music lover, it is also thought he was influenced by the recording label for the Beatles which was apple. Whatever the case, this column could not have been written without that Apple and there is surely much to gain by using a computer to learn about good and evil. As for me, Ill take a nice, crisp Pink Lady, fresh off the tree from North Carolina. A tree grew in Eden Judis Journal Judi Siegal Moving out of Schweinfurt, Tuckey and the rest of his regiment advanced towards Furth and Nuremberg; the very cradle of Nazism. Five divisions were combined to make the assault on Furth with E Company and the 222 leading the way. An estimated 5000 German soldiers surrendered following a bitter battle. A little known fact that Tuckeys letters revealed was the vast amount of suicides that took place during the early months of 1945. As the Nazis learned of their impending defeat many decided to take their own lives rather than live with the reprisals that would come from those they had vanquished. In many cases, whole families took themselves out rather than face punitive actions by either a court or their neighbors. Marching on, the 222 became aware of a prison camp in a town called Dachau. Tuckeys battalion was sent to investigate and what they found while not described in detail by Gary has been well documented in many other historical accounts. Many of the six million Jews exterminated by the Nazis were killed at the camp in Dachau. Above the entrance way in wrought iron was the lying words, Arbeit macht frei (Work will make you free). From many miles away, there was a stench in the air that increased the closer they came to the city. If nothing else, this gives evidence that the people living in the towns and surrounding villages must have known what was happening in these hell holes of human suffering. Ascribing the reports of these concentration camps and the atrocities that were taking place in them to Propaganda, Tuckey on that day in Dachau found himself face to face with reality. It was a sickening moment for him and those with him. In his own words he speaks of the death camp: Only after viewing the indescribable conditions of concentrations camps, PW cages, interment prisons, etc. have we finally realized the necessity of the four months of hell weve experienced in combat with an inhuman race of men. Tuckey carried the memories and weight of his war time experience with him. He did not share his experiences with others as I said before but later in life he suffered nightmares. He would tell his parents, I have enough souvenirs in the back of my mind to last the rest of my life. For 26 years, Gary Tuckey stayed in the Army. He was commissioned and worked his way to Lieutenant Colonel before his retirement. In addition to the Second World War, LTC Tuckey also saw service in the war in Vietnam having been deployed to that location on two occasions. He had medals and ribbons too numerous to mention in this article and many artifacts and memorabilia items but more importantly, he felt a sense of having been both a protector and an honorable man. For Thom, who is also a very successful Army officer, Garys military legacy was one of always taking care of his troops and getting along well with those who worked with and for him. It was a lesson Thom learned and lived well. What Gary left for you and me is a nation that did the honorable and correct thing in the face of nearly insurmountable odds. We took a terrible evil from mankind at a cost of lives that staggers the imagination and freed much of world. On this Memorial Day, we at Cherrywood will honor patriots such as Gary Tuckey who passed away last year. Our heads will bow in a moment of silence; a wreath will be placed in an honored place; our flags will fly at half staff. From this outward showing of honor and respect I can only pray that we commit ourselves to ridding the world of hate and totalitarianism with the same courage and valor as those who went before us. For a copy of the article concerning LTC Gary Tuckey please go to http://www.fortgordonfyi.com/1013/04/m emoirs-of-a-service-past/From your reporterI would like to express my deep appreciation to Virginia Tuckey for supplying me with the information for this weeks Spotlight on Excellence article.

Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Benghazi disgraceIt comes as no surprise the Democrats see no scandal in the Benghazi deaths. How can anyone believe Obama, Clinton and top administration officials didnt know from the very beginning that we were under a carefully planned terrorist attack? Regretfully they agreed to make up the story of the attackers motivation coming from a video. They chose to lie, over and over again, with the obvious goal of preventing political damage so close to the election. Susan Rice then spread the video rumor five different times after she was obviously told to do so. Additionally, how could the stand down order, which insured the deaths of those attempting the rescue, be implemented without Obamas knowledge? It is apparent some in the administration were aware of the situation but let them die. and there should be consequences for doing so. Our elite media, pawns of the liberal Democrats, will do all they can to minimize this tragedy for as long as they can get away with it. Can you imagine their reaction if this occurred under a Republican president? They would have talked impeachment from day one! Hopefully, we will get to the whole truth in the near future as others come forth who have first hand knowledge of the details. We simply want the truth! Wayne Rackley OcalaNegative Influence on Sports The problem of lopsided negative influence of advertising on educational institutional sports programs could be solved by administrators banning scholastic sports from advertising-sponsored television. This would require an attitudinal change that educational institutions are for the primary purpose of providing an education and not as profit centers for the institution. If it is too much an effort to travel to see the games in person, perhaps each school could help sponsor a C-Spantype operation in which fans could watch the game much as people watch in the stadium. No commentary, no ads, no up close and personal, just the game.

Ihave a terrible confession to get off my chest. It is a secret I have tried to hide from family and friends for years. Up to this point, I have been fairly successful in hiding this but I believe the time has come to clear the air. Having a secret is a terrible burden to bear especially around people who know you. You always run the risk that somebody is going to find out and then tell everybody and then the whole world knows your secret. The purpose of a secret is so that nobody knows. I even tried to keep this from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, which comes as close to walking on water as I have ever come. Several times, she has come close to finding out this deep seated secret of mine. Even though this is risky business, I need to make a full confession. Someone has said that confession is good for the soul, but I am not quite sure. My confession is this, and please do not hate me because of it, I love to take afternoon naps. There, I said it. I am not sure what it did for my soul but I do not feel any happier about making this confession. I am a firm believer in what some people refer to as the power nap. The problem is I live amongst a people that believe if you take a nap in the afternoon you are either very young are getting very old. The former is not the issue, and I will take issue with the latter. I must admit that there was a time in my life when I did not take naps. In fact, I had a hard time going to bed before midnight. I hated going to bed and could not wait until morning so I could jump out of bed and get back to work. Do not get me wrong, I was not a workaholic. I just liked what I was doing. I am not sure when it started but I noticed a few years ago I was not resisting going to bed like before. I did not fight it is much as I used to. If the truth were known, hopefully it wont be, as soon as my head hit the pillow the Sandman started doing his thing. It was not long before I started sneaking 40 winks in the afternoon. I distinctly remember one afternoon when my wife said, Youre not taking a nap, are you? I know lying is not a good thing, especially to your spouse. Sometimes when you are in a fixed such as I was in at that moment, the truth scampers in the opposite direction. No, I stuttered as she looked at me. I was just meditating. I guess everybody snores when theyre meditating, she said with aFriday, May 17, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Now thats news I can really use Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder smirk on her face. From then on, it was a game trying to get in a nap without getting into trouble. I did find out that after one of my power naps I was able to do a lot more work. However, I kept that bit of information to myself. Then my whole world changed. Dont you like it when something happens proving you are right? It does not happen very often to me, when it does, I relish it like a freshly baked Apple Fritter. I happened to be watching some television news program. I confess I was half dozing and watching at the same time, but suddenly they said something that got my full salute attention. According to the story, and they cant put it on TV unless its true, right? But according to this story, research showed that there was a great deal of benefits associated with afternoon naps. That was enough for me and I, like the gentleman I am, called for my wife to come and watch this news story with me. Some things in life should be shared and this was one of them. Afternoon naps drastically reduce the danger of heart attack and improve a persons memory. So, I said to my wife after the story, what do you think of that? She smiled and looked at me and said, Well, it must work because you never forget to take a nap. I will forgive her for the hilarious laughter following her remark. Just so you know, the laughter did not come from me. I may have been smiling on the outside but I was snorting on the inside. For years, I thought taking an afternoon nap was rather beneficial. Now I have the proof and I can indulge in a daily power nap without feeling any sense of guilt at all. I love it when I have been proven right. Now I take great delight in one of my favorite Bible passages. Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls (Matthew 11:28-29). A friend of mine often says, Come apart and rest a while or youll just come apart. An afternoon nap has unashamedly become part of my daily activity. 000ES7X (352) 563-6698 (866) 860-BUGS For solutions to all your pest problems, call today! 406 N.E. 1ST ST., CRYSTAL RIVER A complete inspection of the interior and the exterior of your property.

Oak Run Travel Cancellations Our trip scheduled for July 20 to Ed Fletchers Dinner Theatre to see Cookin With Gus has been canceled as a result of notification from Ed Fletchers. They are moving from their familiar location we all loved to a new place which will not be ready until early fall. Our trip 9 to see Murder at Howard Johnsons on Oct. 5 at the new location is still scheduled. Due to residents canceling their seats on remaining Hard Rock trips, we have canceled all of our Hard Rock trips this year. These are trips numbered 2, 7, and 14. Residents have been canceling due to the policy change by Hard Rock whereby they are no longer giving free play. We are hoping to replace these cancellations with at least one trip this fall similar to our successful Mid-Week Getaway earlier this month. Look for an announcement soon.Royal Oaks Lady NinersOn May 9 we played even holes and full handicap. Flight A 1st. Elsa Berbig, tied in 2nd. Charlotte Green and Patty Waddell; Flight B 1st.

Patty Waddell had a birdie on #16.Carol Anns Corner The editor has been having problems with people submitting pictures via e-mail that are very small. This is not a computer problem but rather a camera issue. Many people set the pixels on their camera as small as possible so the pictures use less space on the memory card and they can get more pictures on the card. Thats fine for home pictures but not good for newspaper publication. Cameras have settings for the pixel size. The editor sets his for 640x480 which produces pictures about 20 inches wide. At this pixel setting you can only e-mail about two at a time but they come out crystal clear. Check your pixel settings and make them bigger if you are planning to submit photos to the Citizen. You dont need to make the setting at the maximum size but an intermediate size would be better than itty-bitty. If you wish to submit hard copy photos or typed or written material please take them to the Citizen office at Kingsland Plaza across from Pine Run. Your columnist cannot accept them at her house. I submit my column no later than the Sunday evening before the column appears. Therefore please send me your material by late Sunday afternoon. My e-mail address is democratcarol@deccacable.com. Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 17, 2013 BY RICH LOWRY President Barack Obama was proud to become the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood the other week. But not proud enough to utter the word abortion. The right to abortion is the sneakiest, most shamefaced of all American rights. It hides behind evasion and euphemism and cant. So President Obama sang a hymn of praise to Planned Parenthood at the organizations annual conference without mentioning what makes it so distinctive and controversial. He said its core principle is that women should be allowed to make their own decisions about their own health. He excoriated opponents involved in an orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to womens health. Listening to him, you could be forgiven for thinking that the country is riven by a fierce dispute over whether women should be allowed to choose their own OB-GYNs or to get cancer screenings. In his speech, the president said the word cancer seven times. About that he is happy to be forthright. Imagine if he had been similarly frank about the core of Planned Parenthoods work: In 2011, according to your annual report, your clinics or affiliates performed 330,000 abortions. Thats a lot of abortion. Over 10 years more than 3 million. Thank you, Planned Parenthood. Think of all those women who wanted to terminate their pregnancies, and you were there for them. Thats what you are about. And thats what this countryis about. Before that crowd, he might have gotten rousing applause, but talking in such honest terms would have been a gross faux pas. The unwritten rule when the left discusses abortion is that it shouldnt be called abortion, but always health or, more specifically reproductive health although abortion is the opposite of reproduction and, for one party involved, the opposite of health. The trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell has been an exercise in stripping away euphemism. He is accused of murdering babies because he allegedly didnt manage to kill them in the womb and had to finSeveral years ago, I cant remember exactly when, I sat around talking with my family. It wasnt that long after 9/11, so the topic drifted to terrorism. I remember making the statement that it really wasnt necessary to fly planes into buildings or blow up people to bring the free world to its knees. All the terrorists had to do was to learn how to crash, and maybe destroy, the Internet. Please understand, my sons are all electronically savvy. Coupled with my daughter being a 25-year teacher, that makes a pretty wellrounded group. They must have gotten their talents from their mother. Anyhow, one of the three boys, I cant recall which one, immediately said that doing such a thing to the Internet would pretty much be impossible because its so vast. That conversation was a distant memory until last Tuesday, when I sat at my computer at work, angrily pushing buttons and wondering why I couldnt get e-mail or Internet service. I reset and powered up every device we had here in the office, and still the buttonpushing produced no results. Its aggravating when your email says send and receive error, and your website search produces cant find server check your connections, make sure you typed the URL correctly, etc. I do have Internet access on my phone through another company, and eventually I was able to get the message that Century Link, the provider we use for our Internet, had an outage affecting its operations across the country. It didnt make me feel any better, but at least I knew it wasnt our fault. Later, Century Link said the problem concerned some core routers that malfunctioned. At this writing, its still not known what caused the router problem. All I know is that it nearly crippled us here at this office for a full day, and caused all sorts of problems getting material ready for last weeks Citizen, which is put together on Wednesday. That made me think what would happen if all providers suffered this same outage at the same time. If youre not aware how much the Internet and various other electronic connections are used in everyday life, well, please climb out from under your rock. News from everywhere, even down the street, gets into your newspaper and onto your television via e-mail and the Internet. Your bills for things like phone, gas, electric, etc., are generated with help from the Internet and e-mails. Computers process your medication, and your doctor probably sends in your prescription to your pharmacy via e-mail. In some cases, Internet monitoring keeps people alive. Traffic cameras that control lights on highways are using the Internet to send information. Your Sun Pass on the toll roads uses the Internet, and you can electronically add to your balance without leaving home, etc., etc. Get the picture? It was working Wednesday, and we were able to get the Citizen done. However, with being down all day Tuesday, Im reasonably sure we left something, somewhere, out of the paper that should have been in. If thats the case, please accept our apologies. After the paper was done Wednesday, I went home, plopped down and clicked on the TV, which is set to automatically come on to ESPN. The first thing I saw was a message, temporarily off the air. Try again later. I found that almost all cable stations on the regular network (not the HD tier), had the same message. I called my provider, Cox Cable, and got a message that there was an outage in our area. Fortunately, I was home alone, so my angry scream wasnt heard by anyone. After a few hours, service was restored properly, but it was just another technological glitch to add to my list. Were always told to back up your data. But I wonder how much backup these big Internet providers and cable television networks have. Evidently Century Link didnt have the ability to flip a switch to another set of core routers to keep us running. Cable stations on the HD tier were still working, as were broadcast stations, but obviously it took more than a quick switch to fix the Cox problem. So I hope that last weeks outages, particularly the Internet, arent immediately forgotten. Lets find out what happened and why, and make sure it doesnt happen again. Someday, our nations security, as well as your personal health, could depend on it.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and South Marion Citizen, both in Ocala.

If you had any doubts about the Big Brother takeover in Washington, D.C., a couple of events in the past few days should make those doubts go away. First, there was the revelation that the IRS targeted certain conservative groups for special scrutiny. It wasnt only the Tea Party, but groups with such threatening words as Liberty in their names, among others. Yes, you have to watch out for those groups who want liberty in America. It certainly appears as if the IRS, acting under orders from someone, decided that conservative Americans might be cheating on their taxes more than liberal Americans. President Obama has expressed indignation that such a thing happened. But obviously someone, somewhere, thought this would be a good idea. We doubt if most Americans join in that thinking. Then came the note that the Justice Department, another arm of the federal government, obtained a secret subpoena and got the phone records of The Associated Press, commonly known as AP For those who arent familiar with the AP it is a news cooperative, the largest in the U.S. The AP gets a lot of its news from member newspapers, who feed stories and photos to the service, which then retransmits it to all of its members. But the AP also has its own staff of writers, editors and photographers, stationed around the world, who cover events and put them out to members, a practice commonly called putting it on the wire. Most weekly newspapers such as ours are not members of the AP, since we deal primarily with local news. But our parent daily newspaper, The Citrus County Chronicle, does use AP stories. Reports state that the Justice Department was trying to find the source of what it calls leaks about a situation a while back in Yemen. Evidently, by scrutinizing the APs phone calls, it hoped to zero in on the whistleblower. This has a chilling effect on a free press, guaranteed by the First Amendment. People are willing to expose the wrongs in government by being assured of their anonymity. Reporters have gone to jail to protect their sources. Hearings should be scheduled to determine how this secret subpoena came about. Who issued the secret subpoena? Who requested it? What supervisors thought it was a good idea? These are questions Congress needs to ask, and it doesnt need to be done behind closed doors. These are just two examples of how the federal government is getting out of hand. Our ancestors fought for a free country, and a war was fought over states rights. Now there are some in government who have gotten too powerful, and are threatening those freedoms. Maybe its time for some housecleaning in Washington, not only of elected officials but of bureaucrats who work behind the scenes to erode our freedom. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Big Brothers: Justice and IRS As the Internet fails, everything stops President Obama and the Euphemism Imperative READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor ish the job outside the womb. His case is so discomfiting for liberals not only because it is such a stark picture of the seamy, money-grubbing side of abortion, but because it illustrates how slight the difference is between late-term abortion or late-term health and what nearly everyone recognizes as a crime. In a story about the case, The New York Times referred to the newborns killed by Gosnell as fetuses. The definition of a fetus according to Merriam-Webster is an unborn or unhatched vertebrate. By definition, the newborns werent fetuses; they werent unborn. But the Times couldnt bring itself to use the word baby. This is the crux of the matter: If it is a baby outside the womb, why not inside the womb? If a procedure to end its life is wrong outside the womb, why isnt it wrong inside the womb? The essence of abortion is that there are two lives when you start and one when you finish. If it were your business to perform them and fight all restrictions on them, no matter how slight, you wouldnt want to be forthright and honest about it, either.Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.(c) 2013 by King Features Synd., Inc.

Friday, May 17, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com While we are well into our warmer weather folks up north have just started their farming and gardening. Perhaps thats why May is known as the Carrots and Cauliflower month, according to the Internet site, Bizarre, Crazy, Silly Unknown Holidays. Sit back and vegetate on some growing stories. A sinking fundA gardening club formed an association to exchange ideas and techniques for successful vegetable gardens. Soil mixture was the main subject at the first meeting. Most members felt that loam was essential to ensure success. And after more debate it became clear other members believed in a mixture of cypress shavings and sawdust. The group eventually decided to endorse a combination of the two preferred methods. As a result of the subsequent famous quality of the vegetables grown when planted in this mixture, the club earned the honor of being the only successful Shavings and Loam Association in America.Vegetable energyProfessor Gonnen Dunnit of the universitys physics department has spent a lifetime trying to create cold fusion in the lab. Recently he used molecules from vegetables to trigger the process on the atomic level. During one attempt, it seemed that he achieved his goal when the process resulted in a spherical burst of energy. But no other scientist could duplicate his results. The Nobel Prize committee considered his results, but dismissed Professor Dunnits efforts, saying he had only created a ball of corn fusion. CornyThe word corny may have begun in the 1890s. Companies selling seeds sent their catalogs to farmers. Jokes and riddles were added to the seed catalogs, but the jokes were obvious and trite. They became knows as corn catalog jokes, then corn jokes, and eventually the adjective corny was born. Examples live on today: Why did the tomato blush? Because he saw the salad dressing. What happens when you sit on a grape? It gives a little wine. Why arent bananas ever lonely? Because they hang out in bunches.Beets them allPete the plumber took up gardening as a hobby. He grew all the usual vegetables, but after several seasons, he became fascinated with beets. He came to think, You cant beat beets! Late in one season Pete noticed that some of his beets were wilting. He called the local county extension agent and the agronomist decided he personally needed to look over the situation. Pete could not meet with him because he had to work; he just gave the agronomist the address and a description of the house. When the extension agent drove out to examine the beets, he forgot to take the directions. He thought he remembered Petes address, but, when he arrived in the area, he found that two houses on the block fit the description. Both had gardens with lots of beets. He queried a neighbor and learned that both houses belonged to plumbers. He chose to examine the beets in the garden that seemed most wilted. Taking out his stethoscope, he carefully examined the beets. He quickly identified the problem, so returned to his office. Later, when Pete the plumber called, the agent learned he had been at the wrong address. He exclaimed, My gosh, Ive been listening to the beets of a different plumber.Too good to leave outA Harvard study says that one out of ten deaths is caused by red meat. You know what that really means? Nine out of ten deaths are due to vegetables. U.S. customs officials recently discovered 310 pounds of marijuana hidden in some frozen carrots. Thats one way to keep kids away from drugs put them in vegetables. My vegetables are upset at the way I cooked them over boiling water. Theyre really steamed. Have you heard about the garlic diet? You dont lose much weight, but from a distance your friends think you look thinner. Botanists have developed a vegetable that eliminates the need to brush your teeth. Its called bristle sprouts.No flyChecking the menu, a restaurant customer ordered a bowl of vegetable soup. After a couple of spoonfuls, he saw a circle of wetness forming under the bowl on the tablecloth. He called the waitress over and said, Its all wet down here. The bowl must be cracked. The waitress said, You ordered vegetable soup; maybe it has a leek in it.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. Want to keep kids from drugs?

According to the authors protagonists, without kill after kill of the states worst enemies the world had no chance to get better. Standing by and doing nothing would mean that the monsters win. When the novel opens, Will Robie, the highly skilled assassin first introduced in The Innocent, is given an unusual assignmentto kill one of the governments own, another skilled assassin who has unbelievably gone rogue. Her name is Jessica Reel and she is nearly Robies equal as a professional assassin. So one killer is sent after another killer, which makes sense, at least to Will Robie, because killers have their own special language. The high-octane action is relentless throughout with close calls involving ambushes, bombings, and double crosses. In time the close calls begin resembling each other in a dj vu way that is one of the thrillers flaws. The other flaw is a very slow start. True to a Baldacci novel things are not always what they seemlike Reels reasons for turning. Government conspiracies are rife and too many bad guys are wearing white hats. As Reel and Robie play a game of cat and mouse before actually confronting each other, the big question hanging over every scene is Who can be trusted? Robie and Reel have survived thus far because neither trusts anyone. As he has before Baldacci once again reworks his perennial theme that absolute power corrupts absolutely. The plot takes sharp turns and twists until readers are left to wonder if this lethal, murderous duo can ever lead a normal life or have a real relationship. The author bows to his fans in The Hit by serving up all the excitement theyve come to expect and in time to take it to the beach. Assassin receives strange assignment Bookmark Pat Wellington Health care seminar at churchOn June 10 at 6:30 p.m., Christs Church of Marion Countys Health Ministry will provide an opportunity to meet Doctor Meghavi S Kosboth.

It is a privilege beyond words to be part of this vanishing experience. Each day, some 1,000 WWII veterans pass away, most of whom have never visited the memorial, which wasnt erected until 2004. Since the first Ocala Honor Flight in 2009, more than 100 veterans at a time have made the five trips to see for themselves the nations gratitude for their sacrifice at long last. About 50 medical personnel and volunteers are needed to assist these vets, who are in their late 70s and 80s. On the October 2012 flight, Hospice of Marion County employees Joanne Mancini, RN, and Donna Shaffer, volunteered to make the trip and were assigned to certain veterans. Joanne was side-by-side with Walter, a 78year-old Navy man who had served in the Pacific and is now wheelchair bound and on medication. She got special instructions from his wife from whom he had not been separated for even a day in their 64 years of marriage. When we touched down in Washington, the reception we received at the terminal was breathtaking. Not only were there military greeters, but crowds of people waving flags and saluting the veterans as they disembarked. What a way to start the tour! It only got more emotional from there. Joannes seaman wanted to visit specific areas of the memorial to find the names of his fellow servicemen. At one point he became overwhelmed, dissolving in tears of remembrance, loss and honor, as well as gratitude for the ability to be at the memorial. I, myself, had no idea the magnitude of how many fallen soldiers there were, said Joanne, and the mutual respect between all of those on the flight was instant and tangible. The tour includes several historic sites and ends with changing of the guard28~ Friday, May 17, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Final Honor Flight to be chronicled in movie Honor Flight: One Last MissionSunday, May 26, 2 p.m. Appleton Museum PLEASESEEMOVIE, PAGE3 PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKHammett Bowen Career DayHammett Bowen Elementary School conducted a Career Day on Friday, May 10.

May 11 found many Marion County residents donating 1/4 ton of food for people who need it. The drive was sponsored by the letter carriers. This was done last year as it is a big help to local food pantries whose supply of food goes down fast with children for the summer. This means more food for families that do not have much to start with. More than 150 volunteers helped unload the mail trucks and sort the food into categories. Empty plastic bags were distributed to put the food in. Communities such as On Top of the World that have mail stations instead of house to house mail delivery used large bins on wheels placed at the mail stations earlier in the week.for donations.
