Items for sale included a queen size bed spread, roll top desk and chair on casters, golf clubs, and golf club bag carts, a few racks of clothing, paintings and many other items that were too numerous to list.

It may have been one of the best attended haircuts ever. More than 100 people turned out to the Chabad Jewish Center of Marion County and The Villages in honor of Mendy Hechts 3rd birthday and hair cutting celebration. The guests, following tradition, took turns snipping Mendys long blond wavy hair. In addition to having shorter hair, Mendy will begin wearing the yarmulke, traditional skullcap or head covering, and a tzitzit, a traditional garment with four tassels. Chabad Centers best attended haircut The parents each cut a strand of their first sons hair the biblically-mandated side-locks called the peyot left intact. This is a personal family celebration, but because of the involvement we have with the community, a personal celebration includes everyone, said his father, Rabbi Yossi Hecht, who co-directs the Chabad Center with his wife, Chanie. It marks the start of his formal introduction to Jewish education. It is at this time that a Jewish boy begins to perform mitzvahs (biblical commandments), learn prayers, and develop a love towards God, the torah and his Jewish heritage. In attendance was the Mayor of Ocala Kent Guinn and radio hosts Larry and Robin of WOCA. Guests were invited to a hot buffet lunch as they celebrated the toddlers debut into Judaism.

The Southwest Florida Water Management District is observing May 19-25 as Water Reuse Week. Governor Rick Scott proclaimed Florida Water Reuse Week to highlight the importance of water reuse to the sustainability of Floridas water supply and overall ecosystem. Water reuse is essential to ensuring safe, clean and sustainable water resources. As part of the districts efforts to highlight water reuse awareness throughout our 16-county coverage area, here are five facts about how we are working together to protect Floridas water supply: The district has partnered with Tampa Bay Water to create 110 million gallons per day of new alternative water supplies in the Tampa Bay area. Our district has the lowest per capita usage in the state, with our consumers using 98 gallons per person, per day in the Tampa Bay area. In Florida, the statewide average is 133 gallons per person, per day. Ten percent of all water we use is reclaimed water, which offsets 160 million gallons per day of groundwater throughout the district. District-wide, we have funded enough reclaimed water projects for pipes reaching from Tampa to Washington, D.C. (913 miles). Since 1992, the district has funded indoor and outdoor water conservation projects ranging from toilet rebate/replacements to landscape and irrigation evaluations, conserving over 14.5 million gallons per day of potable water. Thats up to $217 million that didnt need to be spent on creating new alternative water supply.

Friday, May 24, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, May 24, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Lots of possibilities begin to open up by midweek. Some seem more appealing than others. But wait for more facts to emerge later on before you consider which to choose. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Bravo to the determined Bovine. While others might give up, you continue to search for answers. Expect your Taurean tenacity to begin paying off by weeks end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might want to consider stepping back from the task at hand for a while. This could help you get a perspective on what youve done and what needs to be done. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your keen Cancerian insight should help you determine whether a new offer is solid or just more fluff n stuff. The clues are all there waiting for you to find them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Being ignored is difficult for any proud Leo or Leona. But pushing yourself back into the spotlight might be unwise. Instead, let things work out at their own pace. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Trying to uncover a colleagues secret under the pretext of showing concern is ill-advised. Control your curiosity to avoid raising resentment in the workplace. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Expect to hear good news about a loved one. Also, be prepared for some changes in several family relationships that could develop from this lucky turn of events. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Some surprises are expected to accompany a number of changes that will continue through part of next week. At least one could involve a romantic situation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might be upset by some of your critics. But most of your associates continue to have faith in your ability to get the job done, and done well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A workplace goal that suddenly seems out of reach is no problem for the sure-footed Goat, who moves steadily forward despite any obstacles placed in the way. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Uncertainty about who is right might keep you from making a clear-cut decision. Wait until you know more about what youre being asked to decide. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Be careful to keep your emotions in check when dealing with a demanding personal situation. You need to set an example of strength for others to follow. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an extraordinary ability to rally people to do their best. You would be a treasure as a teacher. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. O ur government started bending the truth when it was still a collection of colonies. History teaches that the primary cause of the American Revolution was taxation without representation. There were other issues. The Boston tea party was an uprising against a tax on ship cargo, but its little known that some of the tea-partiers were among the smugglers who supplied 90 percent of the tea being consumed at the time. The British East India Company, which had a tea monopoly, did not appreciate the competition. The colonies had no representatives in the British parliament, and they had to suffer autocratic governors, some of whom were corrupt. Another reason for wanting independence was the colonists unspoken desires to control importation of slaves, and to subjugate and impress native Indians. Explanations of many other events have come under suspicion. In January 1898, our battleship USS Maine entered Havana harbor to protect American business interests during a Cuban revolt against the Spanish government. A few days later the Maine sank when its gunpowder magazines exploded, killing most of the crew. Washington blamed a Spanish mine, and a few months later the U.S. was at war with Spain. The captain of the Maine insisted the sinking was caused by a coal bin explosion. After the war the Maine was raised, and the captains report was confirmed. Similar fact-bending was President Lyndon Johnsons insistence that a torpedo attack in the Gulf of Tonkin justified escalating the Vietnam War. Mr. Johnson relied on a report from an inexperienced sonar operator that there were torpedoes, which was doubtful. The president heard what he wanted to hear, a common audiology malfunction at the White House. The current conflict between the White House and Congress over killings of four Americans in the attack at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, is similar to President Johnsons use of selective information. The Obama White House decided Benghazi would play better as a spontaneous uproar over an anti-Islam movie than an organized terrorist attack at least until after the presidential election. So the nation was told what the White House wanted to hear. More of the same is news that the IRS was over diligent in examining non-profit-status applications by Tea Party organizations. President Obama relies on the Sgt. Schultz defense (from TVs Hogans Heroes): I knew nothing! IRS management claims to have been similarly uninformed. They also heard only what they wanted to hear. In the third recent matter with an odor of truth bending, the Justice Department at first chose to say nothing about tapping phone lines of the Associated Press. As disclosure blossomed, Justice said the matter is a criminal investigation about a leak of classified information. Of course the White House knew nothing about the matter, except what it heard in news reports. Handling of the Benghazi, IRS, and AP embarrassments by the White House confirm Mary Matalins and James Carvilles book title Alls Fair In Love, War, and Running for President, particularly when the elected president never stops campaigning. Responses from Congress are expectable blow-back to persistent political pretzel baking at the White House. As George Orwell said In our age all issues are political and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia. T his time of year is always a little bit rough for me. Between local Memorial Day celebrations, the upcoming anniversary of D-Day and TV depictions of soldiers, it brings back some memories of relatives. There was one who never made it home. He was my Uncle Joe and my Godfather, and he was killed in Normandy seven months after I was born. Somewhere I have a picture of him holding me, I think it was on a park bench, and Ive done research and found a picture of his grave in France. Hes listed as Sgt. Joseph Day of Illinois. I have a lot more active memories of my father, who did come home from World War II. He died in 2004 here in Ocala, and he and my mother are buried in the National Cemetery in Bushnell. His strong military background carried over into his civilian life, where he was active in a group called Catholic War Veterans in Bergenfield, New Jersey, where I was raised. I remember him being the guest speaker at the Memorial Day services in front of the Borough Hall, and I recall his talk on teaching patriotism to young people, telling parents to take their children to the various historical sites within driving distance of where I lived, places such as Valley Forge, West Point, and so forth. I recall being an altar boy at church that night for a weekly Novena, and the priest, a Father Genslinger, asked me if my dad had taken me to all those places he mentioned. I was proud to be able to say, Yes, he did. There was another one who came home, my Uncle Ed. He lost an eye in the war, but came back to run a successful restaurant near the financial district in downtown New York. It was called Neils Luncheonette, and was packed at lunchtime every business day. It was a long, thin building with a counter, and the hamburgers? Well, they were made the way hamburgers should be made in a restaurant, not like the fast food places we see today. Listening to the two of them made me appreciate the military members and what they went through during World War II. I also remember the announcement of the start of the Korea War, and my grandmother crying in the kitchen, worrying that both men would have to go back into the Army. Neither one did. All those memories come drifting back the next couple of weeks as we go to various ceremonies and events. The big one in the county will be at Veterans Park next Monday at 10 a.m. This is always a touching event, but its usually brutally hot, and this day will probably be the same. After that, theres a ceremony at Highland Memorial Park, which is always decorated red, white and blue. A lot of people attend both ceremonies, with one following on the heels of the others. Next Monday, make sure you take time to remember those who sacrificed their lives in war for us. That includes all wars, including those who died fighting in Asia recently. Memorial Day is more than barbecues and picnics. Its a day to honor and remember.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

S o here we are with another week, another tragedy to discuss. This time it was in Moore, Oklahoma, where a powerful tornado flattened a mile-wide path through the town. Moore is just outside Oklahoma City, and is the home of country singer Toby Keith, who is on the ground helping, and of New York Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner, who was pulled out of batting practice the afternoon of the storm and told by team officials to take time to contact his family. Relatives of both men are safe. Probably the biggest talking point has been safe rooms and storm cellars, particularly where it involves the two elementary schools in the path. An older school was damaged and a number of children injured or killed. Students did what many of us were taught, to go into the hall away from windows, but many then ended up in bathrooms huddled together. One of the more touching stories was that of a teacher who was in a bathroom stall covering four little boys. She said one of the boys asked if they were going to die, and she told him she would protect him, which she did. Then she added that she did something as a teacher youre probably not supposed to do I prayed out loud. Television networks and other journalists descended upon the area, wringing their hands and discussing how terrible it was while promoting special shows that undoubtedly would help ratings. The local TV reporters who we heard initially got emotional, because they were talking about their own friends and relatives. Some may not consider that professional, but it was real, compelling television. The newer school had a safe area built into the school, and students reportedly escaped harm. In the area, few homes have basements because the soil makes them susceptible to flooding. But after two other tornadoes in the past 15 years, many people built storm shelters in their back yards and were able to make use of them for themselves and neighbors. Were heading into hurricane season here in Florida, but as many have pointed out, at least with a hurricane you have many days notice that its coming. Not so about tornadoes, which can pop up anytime theres a severe weather threat. But with the hurricane season due, its time to remember that everyone can be a victim of severe weather. Make sure youre prepared. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Have they forgotten our Supreme Court voted to uphold A.H.C. Why have a Supreme Court at all, if the laws they pass are ignored by our elected Congressmen? This is the same Republican party whose campaign slogan was Jobs for the American People. All they seem to want to do is investigate, investigate, investigate. In the past 4 1/2 years Republicans have opposed every jobs bill proposed by the president and the Democratic Party. Wake up voters, before its too late.

erations who have never experienced adversity seem to think there is something drastically wrong with America. Humans who have life too easy, life without an iota of strife or struggle, have a perverted view of what constitutes life. Life has never been a free ride, or picnic for any generation. A wake up call is needed for Boomer Boobs and their progeny People with a distorted view of life, need a little strife in order to appreciate what they have. As we can observe, getting things too easily produces marshmallows, humans with a distorted perspective on life. Boo, hoo, hoo, we want stuff without effort. Rome did itself in. Today we have a few more spoons in the soup vying for the big prize, America. We have homegrown progressives/communists, Islamists, globalists; environmentalists all want the big prize. None of these are acceptable options. America is damaged, it needs a little housecleaning, and repair. It is still the best game on this planet. Let us get on with our fixer upper government, and make it work. America is worth saving, just as it is. Clean out the bugs. Repeal Federal Reserve Act of 1913, Get out of U.N. Dump Obamacare. (it is going to kill us, literally. Especially old folks). No lobbying. No federal education department. IRS revamped, or replaced, fix Wall Street, Fix the EPA, elect Ben Carson, and Rand Paul in 2016. D.I. Larson, Ocala As goes Maine Maine became the 13th state to seek a constitutional amendment to reverse a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that allows unrestricted campaign spending by corporations and wealthy individuals. Other states calling on Congress for a constitutional amendment are Vermont, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, Rhode Island and West Virginia. About time this Supreme Court ruling was reversed! Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunBenghazi attackWhy did the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attack happen in the first place? After the horrific 9/11/01 attack, we went 10 years without being attacked on 9/11, even after Seal Team 6 killed bin Laden in May of 2011 and Sept. 11, 2011 was the tenth anniversary. Then in May 2012, President Obama toured the country with speeches spiking the football on the bin Laden killing. He also bragged that he had Al Qaeda on the run, that he had put it on life support. This gave Al Qaeda great motive to show that they were still dangerous and effective. Survivors of and witnesses to the Benghazi attack said the terrorists were chanting We are Usama! Nuff said. Al Shumard Pine RunFriday, May 24, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, May 24, 2013 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen The Internal Revenue Service has been caught engaging in political profiling while processing applications for tax-exempt status. In this case it was against organizations with tea-party or patriot in their names and other right-wing groups. Next time it could be libertarian or left-wing antiwar and pro-civil-liberties groups. No dissenter can ever rest assured he is safe from the arbitrary power of the IRS. Nothing will have been learned from this scandal if all that happens is the firing of some IRS administrators and the issuance of new guidelines on 501(c)(4) applications. That is not nearly enough. Obviously, tax exemptions exist only because individuals and some organizations are subject to income and other forms of taxation. Congress levies a tax on incomes, then in its wisdom chooses to exempt certain activities but Abolish the IRS and the income tax with it PLEASESEERICHMAN PAGE10 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.com A Memorial Day Service, bowling activities, and an opportunity to save a life constitute this weeks OTOW Happenings. Lions Club The OTOW Lions Club will honor our nations fallen veterans on Memorial Day, May 27. The memorial service will take place at 9:30 a.m. in the Health and Recreational Building Ballroom. Honored guests include veterans, and the OTOW Chorus will perform a medley of patriotic songs. Chaplain Robert Benson will offer the invocation and the benediction, and the West Port High School R.O.T.C. will give both the Presentation and the Retirement of the Colors. Retired Lieutenant Colonel Sharon Murray is the guest speaker. The symbolic placement of the Memorial Wreath, followed by the benediction will conclude the ceremony. Residents of On Top of the World Communities as well as those outside OTOW are encouraged to participate in this event. Bowling LeagueOur end of the year banquet was held at Pavarottis on April 22. The service and food were excellent and it was an enjoyable time. Cash awards were given to each team based on their end of the year standing. The Pin-Poppers, as previously reported, earned first place. The Strikers were second followed closely by the Pushovers. Cash prizes were also awarded for individual achievements (one prize per person except for most improved bowlers). The most improved female bowler was Jeanne Sippin who improved her average by 13 pins over her prior years average. Bob Redden improved his prior year average by 14 pins. High average for the year was achieved by Rick DAddio with an outstanding 181. Linda McIntyre was tops for the women at 158. High single scratch game of 217 was bowled by Lynn Shepherd for the ladies and Norm Hebert for the men of 242. High scratch series were 544 for Judy Shuster and 678 for Bill Hull. Team high scratch game was 791 by the Lucky Four High scratch team series was 2031 by the Strikers.

OTOW Lions planning for Memorial Day service SHANGHAI GIRLS By Lisa See In 1937, exciting Shanghai was considered the Paris of the East. In that year young, nubile sisters Pearl and May were calendar girls promoting, in their gorgeous Westernized gowns, a new China free of arranged marriages and antiquated customs. Life for them was good. Father was prosperous; there were servants and plenty of spending money. The irony was that, unbeknownst to the girls, it was all faade and about to come crashing down at the same time the Japanese were invading their homeland. Their father was deeply in debt to gangsters and could save the familys lives only by selling his daughters into arranged marriages. It was their burden to serve as sacrificial lambs. The wonderment of this beautiful book is their indomitable spirit in shouldering responsibility for their fathers sins even though it brings them a life of incredible want and ugliness. In a low-rent, grimy Los Angeles apartment Pearl scrubs the revolting bathroom mess her tyrannical father-in-law leaves every day and toils in the tiny kitchen while May picks up menial jobs in China City. Pearls husband Sam is distant, aloof, and Mays teenage husband Vern is childish and both mentally and physically challenged. Can anything positive arise out of such grim reality? The answer is yes and its a baby girl named Joy that does brighten their dreary Chinese father sells his daughters lives. Although the sisters cling to each other for support, all between them does not run smoothly. There is jealousy, misunderstanding, and even betrayal. But the need to forgive is best expressed by Pearl: For every awful thing thats been said and done, she is my sister. Parents die, daughters grow up and marry out, but sisters are for life. She is the only person left in the world who shares my memories of our childhood, our parents, our Shanghai, our struggles, our sorrows, and yes, even our moments of happiness and triumph. NOTE: Because the conclusion of Shanghai Girls is a cliffhanger, readers may wish to pick up the sequelDreams of Joy.

Friday, May 24, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, May 24, 2013 www.smcitizen.com not others. This is social engineering, with Congress seeking to encourage some kinds of organizations while not forgoing more revenue than necessary. The IRS then writes rules to carry out the directions of Congress. Where possible, people will naturally strive to qualify for exemption by pushing the boundaries of the regulations. That incentive will always be strong because a nonprofit organization that is exempt from taxation will have more resources with which to pursue its mission. Since the language of statutes and regulations is inevitably vague, the IRS will have room to interpret when ruling on who qualifies and who doesnt qualify for exemption. The line between vigilance and harassment is not bright, and the potential for abuse is great. It should be apparent that this power, which is inherently arbitrary, ill suits a society that sees itself as free. Take the current controversy. The IRS says that to qualify for 501(c)(4) taxexempt status, a nonprofit organization must be operated exclusively to promote social welfare. To do that the organization must operate primarily to further the common good and general welfare of the people of the community (such as by bringing about civic betterment and social improvements). What exactly constitutes the common good and general welfare of the people of the community, or civic betterment and social improvements? The IRS will let you know. What does primarily mean and how does it relate to the seemingly contradictory exclusivity requirement? This is subject to a facts and circumstances test that is, the IRS will decide. Approved activities are generally regarded as educational, but how broadly or narrowly that term is interpreted is left to the IRS and, if challenged, to the courts. Lobbying for legislation germane to the organizations programs is a permissible means of attaining social welfare purposes. However, direct or indirect participation in political campaigns is not regarded as promotion of social welfare although an organization may engage in some political activities, so long as that is not its primary activity. However, any expenditure it makes for political activities may be subject to tax. As this demonstrates, once government undertakes to tax income, it acquires even more power through its authority to define income, taxable income, subsidiary terms, and the rules of exemption. There is no escape from arbitrariness and caprice. One might propose to remove the governments arbitrary power by ending tax exemption. But that would make the tax burden worse. And besides, politicians arent likely to agree, because they would be giving up the power to dispense favors that manipulation of todays tax code affords. Theres a better way to go thats demanded by liberty and justice. Since taxation is nothing less than the confiscation, under threat of force, of what belongs to productive individuals, it has no place in a free society. In other words, everyone should be exempt from income and other taxation. (Americans lived without income taxation for more than 125 years.) If something cant be accomplished through consent, contract, and cooperation without aggressive force we should ask whether it is worth doing. When the income tax was first proposed in America years ago, opponents always had the same word of warning: inquisitorial. How right they were.

W hen Jane and I go grocery shopping we divide the list, take separate carts and meet near the checkout area. Recently I finished first. While waiting at the end of an aisle I saw a new brand of bottled ice tea. Its ingredients were purified water, organic cane sugar, fair trade organic tea leaves and natural favor. The companys name was Honest. Really, it was Honest tea. That got me thinking about todays Pun Alley.Taking it with youA billionaire died, leaving his fortune to his only living friends, a doctor, a CEO, and a lawyer. Being very eccentric, his will stipulated that each one must place their third of the money in his coffin before he is put in his final resting place. After the funeral the three friends talked about the eccentric. The doctor said, I have to be honest, I didnt place all the money into his coffin, I kept five million. Then the CEO stated, Well, I have to admit that I too kept some of the cash, 10 million to be exact. The Lawyer glared at the two and said, I am ashamed of you two, I wrote a check for the full amount. Nine times honest When a man applied for a job in a department store he could only produce one reference that, he thought, would vouch for him. A clerk contacted the reference and asked him if the applicant was honest. Honest? the reference said. Why, his honestys been proven again and again. To my certain knowledge hes been arrested nine times for stealing and every time he was acquitted. To the pointAfter an argument the husband was throwing knives at his wifes picture while she was out. All were missing the target. When he received a call from her, she asked, What are you doing? His honest reply was, Missing you. Truths?Be on the level and you wont go downhill. Tom: Smiths a cheat, and Im not gonna play golf with him again. Andy: Why not, something happen? Tom: Well, how could he find his lost ball a yard from the green when all the time it was in my pocket? Sign in a butcher shop: Honest scales. No two weighs about it. Honesty has one great advantage. You never have to remember anything. Wife: The cleaning woman must have stolen two of our new towels. Husband: Well, some people are like that. Which towels were they? Wife: Oh, you know. The ones we brought back from the hotel in Des Moines. Have you ever heard of an honest cheetah? An honest politician is any public servant wholl stay bought when you buy him. A prize was first awarded for honesty in Europe. If you were and still are completely honest in your product advertisements, you are eligible to win the No-Bull Award. Honesty is the best policy because it has so little competition. A window sign: Tax Returns Prepared Honest Mistakes Are Our Specialty.Back in the old daysI am going away for a few days, Bridget, said the lady of the house to her servant girl, and I am going to leave with you all my keys, those to my closets as well as those to my chests and jewel boxes. I know that they will be safe with you, but, of course, I expect you not to touch them. When the mistress returned, the girl said to her, Madam, Im going to leave you. Why, Bridget? Because you dont trust me. How can you say that, when I left you with all my keys? That you did, but not one of them fits. Wisdom The boss explained the facts of business life to a new employee. If you want to succeed in business, you need two things honesty and smarts. Whats honesty? The truth. Keep your word when youve given it. What are smarts? Never give your word! Game called At long last the boss felt compelled to call Fitch into his office. It has not escaped my attention, he pointed out, that every time theres a big home game, you have to take your aunt to the doctor. You know youre right, sir, exclaimed Fitch. I hadnt realized. You dont suppose shes faking it, do you? Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Friday, May 24, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, May 24, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I have concluded that life, as it stands out in the public arena, is a very confusing thing. As I watched the news and see scandal after scandal unfold and people trying to dance around the facts so that they come out looking good, I am reminded of how that doesnt work for me. I have a new TV show I want to pitch to someone. I am calling it, Dancing with the Idiots. The genius of the show is there is no shortage of contestants. The problem with this show would be who is the idiot to beat all idiots? Since I am not a very good dancer this does not work for me. I think the difference is, I have to answer to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Believe me, she was not born yesterday but I will not give the exact year for obvious reasons. I used to do that but that is when I learned I could not dance, at all. When I was very young and more confused than I am today I thought I could get away with anything. Believe me, I tried. I could write a book, but then there are so many people I would not want to read it that it would not be worth publishing. One problem is associated with this kind of thinking. If you get away with something, who in the world can you brag to about it? If I do something behind my wifes back and actually get away with it, where is the consolation prize? I think the only thing that really illustrates this is fishing. When I was younger, I loved to fish. The wonderful world of angling consists of two kinds of fishermen: those who brag a lot and those who catch a lot and the twain shall never cross rods. I was an avid fisherman and it was a long time before I figured out that in the 23rd Psalm David is not talking about a fishing rod when he says, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Be that as it may, my fishing rod did a great deal of comforting me back in the day. When I would go fishing and come home empty-handed, I could brag about the big one that got away. Of course, every time I told the story the fish got just a little bit bigger. But who is going to correct me on that? Who is to say that it was not really that big? Or, even bigger? When I came home with a bunch of fish, the catch spoke for itself. After all, how in the world can you exaggerate something when it is right before you? Who do you think I am? A politician? If you do think you are getting away with something, somebody will see you and share that information with somebody else who will share that information with somebody else until it has come full circle. Thus begins the dizzy world of confusion. Just this week, for example, I was caught. I hate getting caught. I had come home after a long day at the office and my wife greeted me with, I saw Mrs. Jones who said she saw Mrs. Smith who told her that Mrs. Grant saw you buying an Apple Fritter at Publix. Is there any truth in it? Any husband knows he will never win any argument when there are four women who testify to the contrary of what he is about to say. The best procedure at this point is to fall on the mercy of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Because, I have discovered the great secret to marital bliss. Simply put, when she is happy, I am happy. The trick is to find out what makes her happy. When I am thus caught with the alleged Apple Fritter, she is happiest when I confess and say the magical words, Youre right! Arguments have disappeared. The only thing I have to hear now is, Well, dont let it happen again. And the marital bliss is back on track and I have averted a personal train wreck. A long time ago, I understood the difference between being happy and being right. Yes, there is that time when you need to stand your ground regardless of the consequence. My philosophy of life is to simply pick your battles very carefully. Not every battle is worth the scars. After all, when you are caught with the goods in hand, denying it is the epitome of stupidity. Unless I am a politician, I want to stay away from stupidity as much as possible. The thing about denying the scandal you might be in at the time is, it only prolongs the focus on the scandal. Perhaps some politicians could take my advice and confess fully when caught with the goods in hand. Saying, Im sorry, is the first step in putting something behind you. Someone said that confession is good for the soul. It is good for many other things as well. The Bible is sure good on this aspect of confession. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9 KJV). The world can be very confusing if we are not willing to fess up and try straightening things out. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att.net. His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com.

The program begins at 10 a.m. at the flagpole in front of the Lifestyle Center, and there will be special music for the occasion, reflections by some of our residents and a couple of surprises. If you would like to attend but prefer not to walk or drive, call Sharon or Ken and assistance will be provided. Included in the program is a special tribute to World War II veterans and women who have served in the armed forces. Afterward, light refreshments will be served. Please come out and join us as we celebrate this meaningful day.Potluck dinnerBack by popular demand Marion Landings Potluck Dinner on Sunday, June 2, at 5 p.m. Youre invited to come down to the Lifestyle Center and enjoy an evening with your friends and neighbors and be prepared for some surprise entertainment.

Come down to the courts and join the game or just root for your favorite team. River tour in Dunnellon The May 8 day boat trip in Dunnellon was a very popular outing. Twenty residents boarded the pontoon boat for the 10 a.m. tour and a dozen took the noon tour which navigated the Rainbow and Withlacoochee Rivers. Captain Jon shared his knowledge of Floridas ecology and history through story and song. The tour offered education about the local area and its history, as well as the environment and wildlife along the beautiful waters of the crystal clear spring-fed Rainbow River and the dark, swamp-fed Withlacoochee River. Afterward, some of the group stayed for lunch at The Blue Gator. Many thanks go to Kathy Keables for all her hard work in planning and organizing this terrific trip. If you are interested in future trips, please keep checking the Activity Wall and the Travel Board in the Lifestyle Center, the Travel insert in The Communicator and our column which runs in The Citizen on alternate weeks.

Read the classifieds nately, her mom survived and went on to have 10 more children including Sheila. In a house in County Donegal near the small village of Annagry, Sheila grew up with her nine brothers and sisters. Her father worked for the government inspecting bridges and roads throughout the area. Sheila recalls that he rode his bicycle to every job in all kinds of weather. For her part, Sheilas mom had her hands full raising 10 children. Sheila still remembers one day when her mother wasnt home when she returned from school. Her mom had gone to town to get her teeth pulled but it was the only day that she wasnt there to greet her children at the door. Their home, was situated on a small farm and like most in that time, it had no running water or electricity. Light was provided by kerosene lanterns and water was drawn from a common well. In the winter months, heat was supplied by burning peat; not the person, the mossy type material that is indigenous to the area. Sheila and her brother were tasked with supplying the peat moss for the family. Going to the bog and cutting; lifting the slabs onto a mule drawn wagon and then stacking it to be dried was hard and tedious work. In those days, in order to survive, each child had their chores to do. School was provided by the government but the language was Gaelic with English as a second language. Each year, an inspector would come to the school and ask the children a series of questions. The students would be expected to answer them in Gaelic and if they successfully completed the test, they would receive an award of two pounds each. Sheila related that her and her brothers and sisters always used the two pounds to purchase winter boots. As Sheila grew older, she had the opportunity to attend a technical school. She began course work in what we would now call, Home Economics. Growing up on a farm she certainly knew about that subject. Cooking was not like it is today with modern ranges. There were no temperature controls on coal or wood burning stoves and that was all they had in the classroom. This was shortly after World War II and most of Europe was starving. When it came time for the cooking contest Sheila lucked out and drew a meal of roast beef; potato soup; Yorkshire pudding; mashed potatoes and a beverage. Everything had to be cooked and served warm to the judges with absolutely no waste products. Since she had been preparing or helping to prepare such meals all of her life, the task was not too difficult for her. Unfortunately, while her meal turned out perfect, she had one small scrape of pastry left over from the Yorkshire pudding. This was noted by the judge and she didnt win. Had she won that contest, she might well have gone on to a position in restaurant or hotel management. Things have a way of working out however and Sheila got an opportunity to enter the medical field as a nurse. At 18, she moved to Birmingham, England and began a three and a half-year training program. Ten and 12 hour days were common but on the weekends, she and life long friend Vi Ferris would go out and party. Sheila remembers fondly the day she was caught sleeping at work after a long night in town. Needless to say the supervisor wasnt too happy with her and assigned a scary looking male to accompany her for the rest of her shift. While in nursing school Vi and Sheila decided to take up midwifery. Both had an urge to travel and seek new adventures. After completing their courses of study, they were reading a magazine and found an offer to work in Canada. The Canadian hospital would pay their fare over so they took the opportunity. This began a long journey for the young woman born in Ireland. The hospital where the work was located was in Saskatchewan, approximately in the middle of Canada. After the voyage over, she and Vi had a long train ride into the cold north country. They enjoyed the adventure and travel, however and didnt even mind the money taken from their paychecks to pay for their passage over. The United States was a place where everyone wanted to be so Sheila applied for and was approved to move to Detroit, Michigan. She found the work extensive and trying since they put her in charge of entire floors of women who were either giving birth or had just given birth. An opening came up in a Morristown, New Jersey, hospital and Sheila jumped at the opportunity. It was while in Newton, New Jersey, where she lived that one Christmas she was persuaded to go on a blind date. It was then that she met Harold. Harold was a veteran of the Royal Navy working in a munitions plant in Newton. Between Christmas and New Years they met, and in May they became engaged. In August they married and began their lives together. The two of them would have four children including twin sons; Tim and Terrence and Kevin and daughter Annmarie. That was the end of Sheilas nursing career but only temporarily. When her children were in high school, she would return to her profession. Harold grew tired of his work at the munitions factory and became a supervisor at a company providing expedient packaging services for the government. Also, always active in their community, Sheila has served on the Town Council and Board of Health while Harold served on the Board of Education. Following his retirement, Harold wanted to move some place warm. From a magazine article he and Sheila found Cherrywood estates. That was 14 years ago. They enjoyed their home together until six months ago when Harold passed away. Sheila has, in addition to her four children, seven grandchildren and one great grandchild on the way. She is looking forward to her daughters visit next week and loves the people surrounding her here in Cherrywood. As for her friend Vi, yes, they are still friends after all these years. Recently Sheila was seriously ill with a reaction to a drug that raised her blood pressure to one ninety. She was reminded of her father who lived to be 93 years old. One day the doctor had come by and given him some pills. When the doctor left, her dad gave the envelope with the tablets to his youngest child and said, Here, throw this in the fire place. Much to the disapproval of the family, she did and the pills were destroyed. Sheila probably wishes she had done the same with her prescription. Four of Sheilas siblings are still alive; brothers Brandon and John in England and twin sister Nora and Peg in Ireland. In last weeks edition of the Citizen, Sheila expressed her deep appreciation to her neighbors who came to her assistance when the wind blew down a huge tree on her property. This week we would like to thank Sheila for sharing her story and her life with us here at Cherrywood. She is a loving friend; a great neighbor and an asset to our quality of life. From your reporterThis is a busy time of year for all of our people here at Cherrywood. My thanks to our Activities Committee; Social Committee; Veterans Club; and the other various clubs and events chair people for all they do and for keeping me up to date and informed about their varied happenings. Your cooperation and contribution to our active life style is greatly appreciated. If you have any suggestions or comments about the articles featured in the Cherrywood section of the Citizen, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I always enjoy hearing from my readers.

As each type of wine was tasted, it was obvious that there is a vast difference in sweet and dry wines and those in between. Distributing the samples were volunteers Marti Duesel; Peggy Konar, Genevieve Downs and our own Geri. These ladies were very efficient in making sure everyone got a taste as the consultants gave an explanation of each variety. You too can become part of the PRP family and have your own wine consultant to advise you and insure your total satisfaction when ordering wines for all occasions. If you are interested in having Joe do a presentation in your home or your community, please contact Geri at 352-237-1675 Additional volunteers were Jay OHern; Fred and Marion OHern; Mick and Donna James; Marty Duesel; and Richard and Monica Becotte. They, along with our Social Committee, provided this excellent opportunity to the community to learn about and enjoy a taste of wines from around the country and the world. Wacky Crazy fashion show a hitOver 100 residents purchased tickets and came to the clubhouse on Wednesday, May 15 to witness what can only be described as the craziest fashion show ever. Flower child Eve Houghtaling and the Activities Committee did a fantastic job of providing sweets and a show that wont soon be forgotten. Joanie (John) Everlove emceed the proceedings as over a dozen models brought their fashion tastes or lack of fashion taste down the runway. Rich Becotte played music that was tailor made for each model as they strolled past the audience and judges. Rich Hurley took first place in the contest with his Cockney peddlers costume complete with a vast array of buttons and an authentic antique venders cap. Mick James and Jerry Moscariello tied for second place. Jerry was dressed in the latest, well maybe the earliest, of street fashion while Mick showed off the all weather gear of a Tour De France bicyclist. There was another tie in the standings as Ann Bardack dressed and looked like the belle of the Grand Old Opry, Minnie Pearl. Jim Houghtaling was costumed as a man who survived to the year 2525; looking good for a man that age. Both Ann and Jim tied for the third place winnings. Other contestants were Loretta Moscariello; Dave Bragdon; Bonnie Clark; Joyce Stacer; Holly Bragdon; Midge Lee; Lentz Henderson and Bill Brotherhood. Each had a unique costume and style that brought roars of laughter from the audience. Special appreciation is expressed to Arleen Mayberry; Ruth and Rich Hurley; Christl Giovanniello; Midge Lee; Ida Mahar; and Eve Houghtaling for the desserts. They were ample and delicious. Everyone did a great job and provided hilarious humor for the guests. Theres talk of even more contestants next year so Eve and her committee can be justly proud of the work they put into this show. To say that a good time was had by all would be a gross understatement. Veterans Club On June 6 at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse the Cherrywood Veterans Club will hold its monthly meeting. Our special guests this month will be Al Morrison and some of the clients of Ritz House for Homeless Veterans. Al is the director of Ritz House. This will be an excellent chance for our residents and veterans to hear directly from those who are involved in this worthy program. Learn how education; support and guidance are helping these individuals overcome drug and alcohol addiction; find jobs; and get an education. Being brought back into society is no easy road but many have and are taking advantage of the opportunities provided. At our meeting, those who are working so hard will have a chance to tell their stories and offer a brief overview of the various programs that they are taking advantage of. Following the brief presentation our guests will be taking questions from the audience on any topic our members or friends would like to ask. We are hoping for a big turn out at this meeting to welcome and learn from these fellow veterans. After the residents of Ritz House leave, our usual order of business will be conducted. There will no meetings in June and July so a brief overview of our plans will be put on the floor for discussion. When the meeting concludes, all attendees are invited to join out on the patio for free liquid refreshments. Please plan to attend. Hot Summer Nights What could be better on a hot summer night than a romantic dance at pool side? Thats what we thought too, so on June 22, we are going to have a pizza and dance party in the romantic atmosphere of our pool and patio. Tickets are just $4 per person for entertainment; pizza; iced tea and lemonade. Now if your taste buds require some different type of beverage, bring it along but remember, theres no glass containers allowed near the pool. Plastic or cans are more than welcome. Watch for more details in the Citizen and your June Chirp magazine but plan to come out and enjoy balmy breezes; soft music and a fun evening of dancing and socializing with your friends. The party starts at 7 and runs until 10 in the evening. See you there.

As each type of wine was tasted, it was obvious that there is a vast difference in sweet and dry wines and those in between. Distributing the samples were volunteers Marti Duesel; Peggy Konar, Genevieve Downs and our own Geri. These ladies were very efficient in making sure everyone got a taste as the consultants gave an explanation of each variety. You too can become part of the PRP family and have your own wine consultant to advise you and insure your total satisfaction when ordering wines for all occasions. If you are interested in having Joe do a presentation in your home or your community, please contact Geri at 352-237-1675 Additional volunteers were Jay OHern; Fred and Marion OHern; Mick and Donna James; Marty Duesel; and Richard and Monica Becotte. They, along with our Social Committee, provided this excellent opportunity to the community to learn about and enjoy a taste of wines from around the country and the world. Wacky Crazy fashion show a hitOver 100 residents purchased tickets and came to the clubhouse on Wednesday, May 15 to witness what can only be described as the craziest fashion show ever. Flower child Eve Houghtaling and the Activities Committee did a fantastic job of providing sweets and a show that wont soon be forgotten. Joanie (John) Everlove emceed the proceedings as over a dozen models brought their fashion tastes or lack of fashion taste down the runway. Rich Becotte played music that was tailor made for each model as they strolled past the audience and judges. Rich Hurley took first place in the contest with his Cockney peddlers costume complete with a vast array of buttons and an authentic antique venders cap. Mick James and Jerry Moscariello tied for second place. Jerry was dressed in the latest, well maybe the earliest, of street fashion while Mick showed off the all weather gear of a Tour De France bicyclist. There was another tie in the standings as Ann Bardack dressed and looked like the belle of the Grand Old Opry, Minnie Pearl. Jim Houghtaling was costumed as a man who survived to the year 2525; looking good for a man that age. Both Ann and Jim tied for the third place winnings. Other contestants were Loretta Moscariello; Dave Bragdon; Bonnie Clark; Joyce Stacer; Holly Bragdon; Midge Lee; Lentz Henderson and Bill Brotherhood. Each had a unique costume and style that brought roars of laughter from the audience. Special appreciation is expressed to Arleen Mayberry; Ruth and Rich Hurley; Christl Giovanniello; Midge Lee; Ida Mahar; and Eve Houghtaling for the desserts. They were ample and delicious. Everyone did a great job and provided hilarious humor for the guests. Theres talk of even more contestants next year so Eve and her committee can be justly proud of the work they put into this show. To say that a good time was had by all would be a gross understatement. Veterans Club On June 6 at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse the Cherrywood Veterans Club will hold its monthly meeting. Our special guests this month will be Al Morrison and some of the clients of Ritz House for Homeless Veterans. Al is the director of Ritz House. This will be an excellent chance for our residents and veterans to hear directly from those who are involved in this worthy program. Learn how education; support and guidance are helping these individuals overcome drug and alcohol addiction; find jobs; and get an education. Being brought back into society is no easy road but many have and are taking advantage of the opportunities provided. At our meeting, those who are working so hard will have a chance to tell their stories and offer a brief overview of the various programs that they are taking advantage of. Following the brief presentation our guests will be taking questions from the audience on any topic our members or friends would like to ask. We are hoping for a big turn out at this meeting to welcome and learn from these fellow veterans. After the residents of Ritz House leave, our usual order of business will be conducted. There will no meetings in June and July so a brief overview of our plans will be put on the floor for discussion. When the meeting concludes, all attendees are invited to join out on the patio for free liquid refreshments. Please plan to attend. Hot Summer Nights What could be better on a hot summer night than a romantic dance at pool side? Thats what we thought too, so on June 22, we are going to have a pizza and dance party in the romantic atmosphere of our pool and patio. Tickets are just $4 per person for entertainment; pizza; iced tea and lemonade. Now if your taste buds require some different type of beverage, bring it along but remember, theres no glass containers allowed near the pool. Plastic or cans are more than welcome. Watch for more details in the Citizen and your June Chirp magazine but plan to come out and enjoy balmy breezes; soft music and a fun evening of dancing and socializing with your friends. The party starts at 7 and runs until 10 in the evening. See you there.

Read the classifieds nately, her mom survived and went on to have 10 more children including Sheila. In a house in County Donegal near the small village of Annagry, Sheila grew up with her nine brothers and sisters. Her father worked for the government inspecting bridges and roads throughout the area. Sheila recalls that he rode his bicycle to every job in all kinds of weather. For her part, Sheilas mom had her hands full raising 10 children. Sheila still remembers one day when her mother wasnt home when she returned from school. Her mom had gone to town to get her teeth pulled but it was the only day that she wasnt there to greet her children at the door. Their home, was situated on a small farm and like most in that time, it had no running water or electricity. Light was provided by kerosene lanterns and water was drawn from a common well. In the winter months, heat was supplied by burning peat; not the person, the mossy type material that is indigenous to the area. Sheila and her brother were tasked with supplying the peat moss for the family. Going to the bog and cutting; lifting the slabs onto a mule drawn wagon and then stacking it to be dried was hard and tedious work. In those days, in order to survive, each child had their chores to do. School was provided by the government but the language was Gaelic with English as a second language. Each year, an inspector would come to the school and ask the children a series of questions. The students would be expected to answer them in Gaelic and if they successfully completed the test, they would receive an award of two pounds each. Sheila related that her and her brothers and sisters always used the two pounds to purchase winter boots. As Sheila grew older, she had the opportunity to attend a technical school. She began course work in what we would now call, Home Economics. Growing up on a farm she certainly knew about that subject. Cooking was not like it is today with modern ranges. There were no temperature controls on coal or wood burning stoves and that was all they had in the classroom. This was shortly after World War II and most of Europe was starving. When it came time for the cooking contest Sheila lucked out and drew a meal of roast beef; potato soup; Yorkshire pudding; mashed potatoes and a beverage. Everything had to be cooked and served warm to the judges with absolutely no waste products. Since she had been preparing or helping to prepare such meals all of her life, the task was not too difficult for her. Unfortunately, while her meal turned out perfect, she had one small scrape of pastry left over from the Yorkshire pudding. This was noted by the judge and she didnt win. Had she won that contest, she might well have gone on to a position in restaurant or hotel management. Things have a way of working out however and Sheila got an opportunity to enter the medical field as a nurse. At 18, she moved to Birmingham, England and began a three and a half-year training program. Ten and 12 hour days were common but on the weekends, she and life long friend Vi Ferris would go out and party. Sheila remembers fondly the day she was caught sleeping at work after a long night in town. Needless to say the supervisor wasnt too happy with her and assigned a scary looking male to accompany her for the rest of her shift. While in nursing school Vi and Sheila decided to take up midwifery. Both had an urge to travel and seek new adventures. After completing their courses of study, they were reading a magazine and found an offer to work in Canada. The Canadian hospital would pay their fare over so they took the opportunity. This began a long journey for the young woman born in Ireland. The hospital where the work was located was in Saskatchewan, approximately in the middle of Canada. After the voyage over, she and Vi had a long train ride into the cold north country. They enjoyed the adventure and travel, however and didnt even mind the money taken from their paychecks to pay for their passage over. The United States was a place where everyone wanted to be so Sheila applied for and was approved to move to Detroit, Michigan. She found the work extensive and trying since they put her in charge of entire floors of women who were either giving birth or had just given birth. An opening came up in a Morristown, New Jersey, hospital and Sheila jumped at the opportunity. It was while in Newton, New Jersey, where she lived that one Christmas she was persuaded to go on a blind date. It was then that she met Harold. Harold was a veteran of the Royal Navy working in a munitions plant in Newton. Between Christmas and New Years they met, and in May they became engaged. In August they married and began their lives together. The two of them would have four children including twin sons; Tim and Terrence and Kevin and daughter Annmarie. That was the end of Sheilas nursing career but only temporarily. When her children were in high school, she would return to her profession. Harold grew tired of his work at the munitions factory and became a supervisor at a company providing expedient packaging services for the government. Also, always active in their community, Sheila has served on the Town Council and Board of Health while Harold served on the Board of Education. Following his retirement, Harold wanted to move some place warm. From a magazine article he and Sheila found Cherrywood estates. That was 14 years ago. They enjoyed their home together until six months ago when Harold passed away. Sheila has, in addition to her four children, seven grandchildren and one great grandchild on the way. She is looking forward to her daughters visit next week and loves the people surrounding her here in Cherrywood. As for her friend Vi, yes, they are still friends after all these years. Recently Sheila was seriously ill with a reaction to a drug that raised her blood pressure to one ninety. She was reminded of her father who lived to be 93 years old. One day the doctor had come by and given him some pills. When the doctor left, her dad gave the envelope with the tablets to his youngest child and said, Here, throw this in the fire place. Much to the disapproval of the family, she did and the pills were destroyed. Sheila probably wishes she had done the same with her prescription. Four of Sheilas siblings are still alive; brothers Brandon and John in England and twin sister Nora and Peg in Ireland. In last weeks edition of the Citizen, Sheila expressed her deep appreciation to her neighbors who came to her assistance when the wind blew down a huge tree on her property. This week we would like to thank Sheila for sharing her story and her life with us here at Cherrywood. She is a loving friend; a great neighbor and an asset to our quality of life. From your reporterThis is a busy time of year for all of our people here at Cherrywood. My thanks to our Activities Committee; Social Committee; Veterans Club; and the other various clubs and events chair people for all they do and for keeping me up to date and informed about their varied happenings. Your cooperation and contribution to our active life style is greatly appreciated. If you have any suggestions or comments about the articles featured in the Cherrywood section of the Citizen, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I always enjoy hearing from my readers.

Friday, May 24, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, May 24, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I have concluded that life, as it stands out in the public arena, is a very confusing thing. As I watched the news and see scandal after scandal unfold and people trying to dance around the facts so that they come out looking good, I am reminded of how that doesnt work for me. I have a new TV show I want to pitch to someone. I am calling it, Dancing with the Idiots. The genius of the show is there is no shortage of contestants. The problem with this show would be who is the idiot to beat all idiots? Since I am not a very good dancer this does not work for me. I think the difference is, I have to answer to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Believe me, she was not born yesterday but I will not give the exact year for obvious reasons. I used to do that but that is when I learned I could not dance, at all. When I was very young and more confused than I am today I thought I could get away with anything. Believe me, I tried. I could write a book, but then there are so many people I would not want to read it that it would not be worth publishing. One problem is associated with this kind of thinking. If you get away with something, who in the world can you brag to about it? If I do something behind my wifes back and actually get away with it, where is the consolation prize? I think the only thing that really illustrates this is fishing. When I was younger, I loved to fish. The wonderful world of angling consists of two kinds of fishermen: those who brag a lot and those who catch a lot and the twain shall never cross rods. I was an avid fisherman and it was a long time before I figured out that in the 23rd Psalm David is not talking about a fishing rod when he says, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Be that as it may, my fishing rod did a great deal of comforting me back in the day. When I would go fishing and come home empty-handed, I could brag about the big one that got away. Of course, every time I told the story the fish got just a little bit bigger. But who is going to correct me on that? Who is to say that it was not really that big? Or, even bigger? When I came home with a bunch of fish, the catch spoke for itself. After all, how in the world can you exaggerate something when it is right before you? Who do you think I am? A politician? If you do think you are getting away with something, somebody will see you and share that information with somebody else who will share that information with somebody else until it has come full circle. Thus begins the dizzy world of confusion. Just this week, for example, I was caught. I hate getting caught. I had come home after a long day at the office and my wife greeted me with, I saw Mrs. Jones who said she saw Mrs. Smith who told her that Mrs. Grant saw you buying an Apple Fritter at Publix. Is there any truth in it? Any husband knows he will never win any argument when there are four women who testify to the contrary of what he is about to say. The best procedure at this point is to fall on the mercy of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Because, I have discovered the great secret to marital bliss. Simply put, when she is happy, I am happy. The trick is to find out what makes her happy. When I am thus caught with the alleged Apple Fritter, she is happiest when I confess and say the magical words, Youre right! Arguments have disappeared. The only thing I have to hear now is, Well, dont let it happen again. And the marital bliss is back on track and I have averted a personal train wreck. A long time ago, I understood the difference between being happy and being right. Yes, there is that time when you need to stand your ground regardless of the consequence. My philosophy of life is to simply pick your battles very carefully. Not every battle is worth the scars. After all, when you are caught with the goods in hand, denying it is the epitome of stupidity. Unless I am a politician, I want to stay away from stupidity as much as possible. The thing about denying the scandal you might be in at the time is, it only prolongs the focus on the scandal. Perhaps some politicians could take my advice and confess fully when caught with the goods in hand. Saying, Im sorry, is the first step in putting something behind you. Someone said that confession is good for the soul. It is good for many other things as well. The Bible is sure good on this aspect of confession. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9 KJV). The world can be very confusing if we are not willing to fess up and try straightening things out. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att.net. His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com. And I thought I was the one who was confused Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder A ll Marion Landing veterans are invited to join others at the Administration Building at 9:45 a.m. on Monday, May 27, to carry a flag and walk or ride to the Lifestyle Center where a very special Memorial Day program is planned. The program has been organized by Sharon and Ken Talbert, and they promise a very memorable and meaningful Memorial Day program. The program begins at 10 a.m. at the flagpole in front of the Lifestyle Center, and there will be special music for the occasion, reflections by some of our residents and a couple of surprises. If you would like to attend but prefer not to walk or drive, call Sharon or Ken and assistance will be provided. Included in the program is a special tribute to World War II veterans and women who have served in the armed forces. Afterward, light refreshments will be served. Please come out and join us as we celebrate this meaningful day.Potluck dinnerBack by popular demand Marion Landings Potluck Dinner on Sunday, June 2, at 5 p.m. Youre invited to come down to the Lifestyle Center and enjoy an evening with your friends and neighbors and be prepared for some surprise entertainment. The doors will open at 4:30 p.m.; and please bring a dish to share, as everyone always enjoys a taste of each others recipes. The theme for this dinner is The Four Seasons so preparing a dish reflecting one of the seasons is requested. A ticket for $1 will reserve your seat, and you will get your dollar back at the door. Tickets are available for one more week at the Tuesday Social and in the Activities Office during regular ticket sale hours. Shredding rescheduledEnviro-shred mobile shredding service has been rescheduled for Friday, May 31, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The shredding truck will be in the parking lot of the Lifestyle Center to safely and securely shred your unwanted documents. The cost is $4 per cubic foot (about the size of one copy paper box), and you may leave staples and regular paper clips on the documents. For more information, please call the Activities Office; if you are interested, please put your name on the sign-up sheet hanging on the Activity Wall.Shuffleboard challengeDont forget the next Shuffleboard Challenge which is scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, May 25, at 7 p.m. Its the men vs. the women again, and the ladies are hoping for a win. Come down to the courts and join the game or just root for your favorite team. River tour in Dunnellon The May 8 day boat trip in Dunnellon was a very popular outing. Twenty residents boarded the pontoon boat for the 10 a.m. tour and a dozen took the noon tour which navigated the Rainbow and Withlacoochee Rivers. Captain Jon shared his knowledge of Floridas ecology and history through story and song. The tour offered education about the local area and its history, as well as the environment and wildlife along the beautiful waters of the crystal clear spring-fed Rainbow River and the dark, swamp-fed Withlacoochee River. Afterward, some of the group stayed for lunch at The Blue Gator. Many thanks go to Kathy Keables for all her hard work in planning and organizing this terrific trip. If you are interested in future trips, please keep checking the Activity Wall and the Travel Board in the Lifestyle Center, the Travel insert in The Communicator and our column which runs in The Citizen on alternate weeks.

Friday, May 24, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, May 24, 2013 www.smcitizen.com not others. This is social engineering, with Congress seeking to encourage some kinds of organizations while not forgoing more revenue than necessary. The IRS then writes rules to carry out the directions of Congress. Where possible, people will naturally strive to qualify for exemption by pushing the boundaries of the regulations. That incentive will always be strong because a nonprofit organization that is exempt from taxation will have more resources with which to pursue its mission. Since the language of statutes and regulations is inevitably vague, the IRS will have room to interpret when ruling on who qualifies and who doesnt qualify for exemption. The line between vigilance and harassment is not bright, and the potential for abuse is great. It should be apparent that this power, which is inherently arbitrary, ill suits a society that sees itself as free. Take the current controversy. The IRS says that to qualify for 501(c)(4) taxexempt status, a nonprofit organization must be operated exclusively to promote social welfare. To do that the organization must operate primarily to further the common good and general welfare of the people of the community (such as by bringing about civic betterment and social improvements). What exactly constitutes the common good and general welfare of the people of the community, or civic betterment and social improvements? The IRS will let you know. What does primarily mean and how does it relate to the seemingly contradictory exclusivity requirement? This is subject to a facts and circumstances test that is, the IRS will decide. Approved activities are generally regarded as educational, but how broadly or narrowly that term is interpreted is left to the IRS and, if challenged, to the courts. Lobbying for legislation germane to the organizations programs is a permissible means of attaining social welfare purposes. However, direct or indirect participation in political campaigns is not regarded as promotion of social welfare although an organization may engage in some political activities, so long as that is not its primary activity. However, any expenditure it makes for political activities may be subject to tax. As this demonstrates, once government undertakes to tax income, it acquires even more power through its authority to define income, taxable income, subsidiary terms, and the rules of exemption. There is no escape from arbitrariness and caprice. One might propose to remove the governments arbitrary power by ending tax exemption. But that would make the tax burden worse. And besides, politicians arent likely to agree, because they would be giving up the power to dispense favors that manipulation of todays tax code affords. Theres a better way to go thats demanded by liberty and justice. Since taxation is nothing less than the confiscation, under threat of force, of what belongs to productive individuals, it has no place in a free society. In other words, everyone should be exempt from income and other taxation. (Americans lived without income taxation for more than 125 years.) If something cant be accomplished through consent, contract, and cooperation without aggressive force we should ask whether it is worth doing. When the income tax was first proposed in America years ago, opponents always had the same word of warning: inquisitorial. How right they were.

W hen Jane and I go grocery shopping we divide the list, take separate carts and meet near the checkout area. Recently I finished first. While waiting at the end of an aisle I saw a new brand of bottled ice tea. Its ingredients were purified water, organic cane sugar, fair trade organic tea leaves and natural favor. The companys name was Honest. Really, it was Honest tea. That got me thinking about todays Pun Alley.Taking it with youA billionaire died, leaving his fortune to his only living friends, a doctor, a CEO, and a lawyer. Being very eccentric, his will stipulated that each one must place their third of the money in his coffin before he is put in his final resting place. After the funeral the three friends talked about the eccentric. The doctor said, I have to be honest, I didnt place all the money into his coffin, I kept five million. Then the CEO stated, Well, I have to admit that I too kept some of the cash, 10 million to be exact. The Lawyer glared at the two and said, I am ashamed of you two, I wrote a check for the full amount. Nine times honest When a man applied for a job in a department store he could only produce one reference that, he thought, would vouch for him. A clerk contacted the reference and asked him if the applicant was honest. Honest? the reference said. Why, his honestys been proven again and again. To my certain knowledge hes been arrested nine times for stealing and every time he was acquitted. To the pointAfter an argument the husband was throwing knives at his wifes picture while she was out. All were missing the target. When he received a call from her, she asked, What are you doing? His honest reply was, Missing you. Truths?Be on the level and you wont go downhill. Tom: Smiths a cheat, and Im not gonna play golf with him again. Andy: Why not, something happen? Tom: Well, how could he find his lost ball a yard from the green when all the time it was in my pocket? Sign in a butcher shop: Honest scales. No two weighs about it. Honesty has one great advantage. You never have to remember anything. Wife: The cleaning woman must have stolen two of our new towels. Husband: Well, some people are like that. Which towels were they? Wife: Oh, you know. The ones we brought back from the hotel in Des Moines. Have you ever heard of an honest cheetah? An honest politician is any public servant wholl stay bought when you buy him. A prize was first awarded for honesty in Europe. If you were and still are completely honest in your product advertisements, you are eligible to win the No-Bull Award. Honesty is the best policy because it has so little competition. A window sign: Tax Returns Prepared Honest Mistakes Are Our Specialty.Back in the old daysI am going away for a few days, Bridget, said the lady of the house to her servant girl, and I am going to leave with you all my keys, those to my closets as well as those to my chests and jewel boxes. I know that they will be safe with you, but, of course, I expect you not to touch them. When the mistress returned, the girl said to her, Madam, Im going to leave you. Why, Bridget? Because you dont trust me. How can you say that, when I left you with all my keys? That you did, but not one of them fits. Wisdom The boss explained the facts of business life to a new employee. If you want to succeed in business, you need two things honesty and smarts. Whats honesty? The truth. Keep your word when youve given it. What are smarts? Never give your word! Game called At long last the boss felt compelled to call Fitch into his office. It has not escaped my attention, he pointed out, that every time theres a big home game, you have to take your aunt to the doctor. You know youre right, sir, exclaimed Fitch. I hadnt realized. You dont suppose shes faking it, do you? Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

erations who have never experienced adversity seem to think there is something drastically wrong with America. Humans who have life too easy, life without an iota of strife or struggle, have a perverted view of what constitutes life. Life has never been a free ride, or picnic for any generation. A wake up call is needed for Boomer Boobs and their progeny People with a distorted view of life, need a little strife in order to appreciate what they have. As we can observe, getting things too easily produces marshmallows, humans with a distorted perspective on life. Boo, hoo, hoo, we want stuff without effort. Rome did itself in. Today we have a few more spoons in the soup vying for the big prize, America. We have homegrown progressives/communists, Islamists, globalists; environmentalists all want the big prize. None of these are acceptable options. America is damaged, it needs a little housecleaning, and repair. It is still the best game on this planet. Let us get on with our fixer upper government, and make it work. America is worth saving, just as it is. Clean out the bugs. Repeal Federal Reserve Act of 1913, Get out of U.N. Dump Obamacare. (it is going to kill us, literally. Especially old folks). No lobbying. No federal education department. IRS revamped, or replaced, fix Wall Street, Fix the EPA, elect Ben Carson, and Rand Paul in 2016. D.I. Larson, Ocala As goes Maine Maine became the 13th state to seek a constitutional amendment to reverse a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that allows unrestricted campaign spending by corporations and wealthy individuals. Other states calling on Congress for a constitutional amendment are Vermont, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, Rhode Island and West Virginia. About time this Supreme Court ruling was reversed! Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunBenghazi attackWhy did the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attack happen in the first place? After the horrific 9/11/01 attack, we went 10 years without being attacked on 9/11, even after Seal Team 6 killed bin Laden in May of 2011 and Sept. 11, 2011 was the tenth anniversary. Then in May 2012, President Obama toured the country with speeches spiking the football on the bin Laden killing. He also bragged that he had Al Qaeda on the run, that he had put it on life support. This gave Al Qaeda great motive to show that they were still dangerous and effective. Survivors of and witnesses to the Benghazi attack said the terrorists were chanting We are Usama! Nuff said. Al Shumard Pine RunFriday, May 24, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, May 24, 2013 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen The Internal Revenue Service has been caught engaging in political profiling while processing applications for tax-exempt status. In this case it was against organizations with tea-party or patriot in their names and other right-wing groups. Next time it could be libertarian or left-wing antiwar and pro-civil-liberties groups. No dissenter can ever rest assured he is safe from the arbitrary power of the IRS. Nothing will have been learned from this scandal if all that happens is the firing of some IRS administrators and the issuance of new guidelines on 501(c)(4) applications. That is not nearly enough. Obviously, tax exemptions exist only because individuals and some organizations are subject to income and other forms of taxation. Congress levies a tax on incomes, then in its wisdom chooses to exempt certain activities but Abolish the IRS and the income tax with it PLEASESEERICHMAN PAGE10 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.com A Memorial Day Service, bowling activities, and an opportunity to save a life constitute this weeks OTOW Happenings. Lions Club The OTOW Lions Club will honor our nations fallen veterans on Memorial Day, May 27. The memorial service will take place at 9:30 a.m. in the Health and Recreational Building Ballroom. Honored guests include veterans, and the OTOW Chorus will perform a medley of patriotic songs. Chaplain Robert Benson will offer the invocation and the benediction, and the West Port High School R.O.T.C. will give both the Presentation and the Retirement of the Colors. Retired Lieutenant Colonel Sharon Murray is the guest speaker. The symbolic placement of the Memorial Wreath, followed by the benediction will conclude the ceremony. Residents of On Top of the World Communities as well as those outside OTOW are encouraged to participate in this event. Bowling LeagueOur end of the year banquet was held at Pavarottis on April 22. The service and food were excellent and it was an enjoyable time. Cash awards were given to each team based on their end of the year standing. The Pin-Poppers, as previously reported, earned first place. The Strikers were second followed closely by the Pushovers. Cash prizes were also awarded for individual achievements (one prize per person except for most improved bowlers). The most improved female bowler was Jeanne Sippin who improved her average by 13 pins over her prior years average. Bob Redden improved his prior year average by 14 pins. High average for the year was achieved by Rick DAddio with an outstanding 181. Linda McIntyre was tops for the women at 158. High single scratch game of 217 was bowled by Lynn Shepherd for the ladies and Norm Hebert for the men of 242. High scratch series were 544 for Judy Shuster and 678 for Bill Hull. Team high scratch game was 791 by the Lucky Four High scratch team series was 2031 by the Strikers. Congratulations to these bowlers and teams and others who contributed to an enjoyable year of bowling. Although next years bowling season will not start until Sept. 9, readers might want to keep in mind the date of Aug. 12. On that date AMF Galaxy West Lanes will sponsor an open house with two free hours of bowling including shoes at 2:30 p.m. for any resident of On Top of the World or Stone Creek. Reservations will be required by notifying the writer of this article at 352-873-4327.

OTOW Lions planning for Memorial Day service SHANGHAI GIRLS By Lisa See In 1937, exciting Shanghai was considered the Paris of the East. In that year young, nubile sisters Pearl and May were calendar girls promoting, in their gorgeous Westernized gowns, a new China free of arranged marriages and antiquated customs. Life for them was good. Father was prosperous; there were servants and plenty of spending money. The irony was that, unbeknownst to the girls, it was all faade and about to come crashing down at the same time the Japanese were invading their homeland. Their father was deeply in debt to gangsters and could save the familys lives only by selling his daughters into arranged marriages. It was their burden to serve as sacrificial lambs. The wonderment of this beautiful book is their indomitable spirit in shouldering responsibility for their fathers sins even though it brings them a life of incredible want and ugliness. In a low-rent, grimy Los Angeles apartment Pearl scrubs the revolting bathroom mess her tyrannical father-in-law leaves every day and toils in the tiny kitchen while May picks up menial jobs in China City. Pearls husband Sam is distant, aloof, and Mays teenage husband Vern is childish and both mentally and physically challenged. Can anything positive arise out of such grim reality? The answer is yes and its a baby girl named Joy that does brighten their dreary Chinese father sells his daughters lives. Although the sisters cling to each other for support, all between them does not run smoothly. There is jealousy, misunderstanding, and even betrayal. But the need to forgive is best expressed by Pearl: For every awful thing thats been said and done, she is my sister. Parents die, daughters grow up and marry out, but sisters are for life. She is the only person left in the world who shares my memories of our childhood, our parents, our Shanghai, our struggles, our sorrows, and yes, even our moments of happiness and triumph. NOTE: Because the conclusion of Shanghai Girls is a cliffhanger, readers may wish to pick up the sequelDreams of Joy.

Friday, May 24, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, May 24, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Lots of possibilities begin to open up by midweek. Some seem more appealing than others. But wait for more facts to emerge later on before you consider which to choose. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Bravo to the determined Bovine. While others might give up, you continue to search for answers. Expect your Taurean tenacity to begin paying off by weeks end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might want to consider stepping back from the task at hand for a while. This could help you get a perspective on what youve done and what needs to be done. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your keen Cancerian insight should help you determine whether a new offer is solid or just more fluff n stuff. The clues are all there waiting for you to find them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Being ignored is difficult for any proud Leo or Leona. But pushing yourself back into the spotlight might be unwise. Instead, let things work out at their own pace. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Trying to uncover a colleagues secret under the pretext of showing concern is ill-advised. Control your curiosity to avoid raising resentment in the workplace. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Expect to hear good news about a loved one. Also, be prepared for some changes in several family relationships that could develop from this lucky turn of events. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Some surprises are expected to accompany a number of changes that will continue through part of next week. At least one could involve a romantic situation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might be upset by some of your critics. But most of your associates continue to have faith in your ability to get the job done, and done well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A workplace goal that suddenly seems out of reach is no problem for the sure-footed Goat, who moves steadily forward despite any obstacles placed in the way. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Uncertainty about who is right might keep you from making a clear-cut decision. Wait until you know more about what youre being asked to decide. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Be careful to keep your emotions in check when dealing with a demanding personal situation. You need to set an example of strength for others to follow. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an extraordinary ability to rally people to do their best. You would be a treasure as a teacher. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. O ur government started bending the truth when it was still a collection of colonies. History teaches that the primary cause of the American Revolution was taxation without representation. There were other issues. The Boston tea party was an uprising against a tax on ship cargo, but its little known that some of the tea-partiers were among the smugglers who supplied 90 percent of the tea being consumed at the time. The British East India Company, which had a tea monopoly, did not appreciate the competition. The colonies had no representatives in the British parliament, and they had to suffer autocratic governors, some of whom were corrupt. Another reason for wanting independence was the colonists unspoken desires to control importation of slaves, and to subjugate and impress native Indians. Explanations of many other events have come under suspicion. In January 1898, our battleship USS Maine entered Havana harbor to protect American business interests during a Cuban revolt against the Spanish government. A few days later the Maine sank when its gunpowder magazines exploded, killing most of the crew. Washington blamed a Spanish mine, and a few months later the U.S. was at war with Spain. The captain of the Maine insisted the sinking was caused by a coal bin explosion. After the war the Maine was raised, and the captains report was confirmed. Similar fact-bending was President Lyndon Johnsons insistence that a torpedo attack in the Gulf of Tonkin justified escalating the Vietnam War. Mr. Johnson relied on a report from an inexperienced sonar operator that there were torpedoes, which was doubtful. The president heard what he wanted to hear, a common audiology malfunction at the White House. The current conflict between the White House and Congress over killings of four Americans in the attack at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, is similar to President Johnsons use of selective information. The Obama White House decided Benghazi would play better as a spontaneous uproar over an anti-Islam movie than an organized terrorist attack at least until after the presidential election. So the nation was told what the White House wanted to hear. More of the same is news that the IRS was over diligent in examining non-profit-status applications by Tea Party organizations. President Obama relies on the Sgt. Schultz defense (from TVs Hogans Heroes): I knew nothing! IRS management claims to have been similarly uninformed. They also heard only what they wanted to hear. In the third recent matter with an odor of truth bending, the Justice Department at first chose to say nothing about tapping phone lines of the Associated Press. As disclosure blossomed, Justice said the matter is a criminal investigation about a leak of classified information. Of course the White House knew nothing about the matter, except what it heard in news reports. Handling of the Benghazi, IRS, and AP embarrassments by the White House confirm Mary Matalins and James Carvilles book title Alls Fair In Love, War, and Running for President, particularly when the elected president never stops campaigning. Responses from Congress are expectable blow-back to persistent political pretzel baking at the White House. As George Orwell said In our age all issues are political and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia. T his time of year is always a little bit rough for me. Between local Memorial Day celebrations, the upcoming anniversary of D-Day and TV depictions of soldiers, it brings back some memories of relatives. There was one who never made it home. He was my Uncle Joe and my Godfather, and he was killed in Normandy seven months after I was born. Somewhere I have a picture of him holding me, I think it was on a park bench, and Ive done research and found a picture of his grave in France. Hes listed as Sgt. Joseph Day of Illinois. I have a lot more active memories of my father, who did come home from World War II. He died in 2004 here in Ocala, and he and my mother are buried in the National Cemetery in Bushnell. His strong military background carried over into his civilian life, where he was active in a group called Catholic War Veterans in Bergenfield, New Jersey, where I was raised. I remember him being the guest speaker at the Memorial Day services in front of the Borough Hall, and I recall his talk on teaching patriotism to young people, telling parents to take their children to the various historical sites within driving distance of where I lived, places such as Valley Forge, West Point, and so forth. I recall being an altar boy at church that night for a weekly Novena, and the priest, a Father Genslinger, asked me if my dad had taken me to all those places he mentioned. I was proud to be able to say, Yes, he did. There was another one who came home, my Uncle Ed. He lost an eye in the war, but came back to run a successful restaurant near the financial district in downtown New York. It was called Neils Luncheonette, and was packed at lunchtime every business day. It was a long, thin building with a counter, and the hamburgers? Well, they were made the way hamburgers should be made in a restaurant, not like the fast food places we see today. Listening to the two of them made me appreciate the military members and what they went through during World War II. I also remember the announcement of the start of the Korea War, and my grandmother crying in the kitchen, worrying that both men would have to go back into the Army. Neither one did. All those memories come drifting back the next couple of weeks as we go to various ceremonies and events. The big one in the county will be at Veterans Park next Monday at 10 a.m. This is always a touching event, but its usually brutally hot, and this day will probably be the same. After that, theres a ceremony at Highland Memorial Park, which is always decorated red, white and blue. A lot of people attend both ceremonies, with one following on the heels of the others. Next Monday, make sure you take time to remember those who sacrificed their lives in war for us. That includes all wars, including those who died fighting in Asia recently. Memorial Day is more than barbecues and picnics. Its a day to honor and remember.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

S o here we are with another week, another tragedy to discuss. This time it was in Moore, Oklahoma, where a powerful tornado flattened a mile-wide path through the town. Moore is just outside Oklahoma City, and is the home of country singer Toby Keith, who is on the ground helping, and of New York Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner, who was pulled out of batting practice the afternoon of the storm and told by team officials to take time to contact his family. Relatives of both men are safe. Probably the biggest talking point has been safe rooms and storm cellars, particularly where it involves the two elementary schools in the path. An older school was damaged and a number of children injured or killed. Students did what many of us were taught, to go into the hall away from windows, but many then ended up in bathrooms huddled together. One of the more touching stories was that of a teacher who was in a bathroom stall covering four little boys. She said one of the boys asked if they were going to die, and she told him she would protect him, which she did. Then she added that she did something as a teacher youre probably not supposed to do I prayed out loud. Television networks and other journalists descended upon the area, wringing their hands and discussing how terrible it was while promoting special shows that undoubtedly would help ratings. The local TV reporters who we heard initially got emotional, because they were talking about their own friends and relatives. Some may not consider that professional, but it was real, compelling television. The newer school had a safe area built into the school, and students reportedly escaped harm. In the area, few homes have basements because the soil makes them susceptible to flooding. But after two other tornadoes in the past 15 years, many people built storm shelters in their back yards and were able to make use of them for themselves and neighbors. Were heading into hurricane season here in Florida, but as many have pointed out, at least with a hurricane you have many days notice that its coming. Not so about tornadoes, which can pop up anytime theres a severe weather threat. But with the hurricane season due, its time to remember that everyone can be a victim of severe weather. Make sure youre prepared. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Have they forgotten our Supreme Court voted to uphold A.H.C. Why have a Supreme Court at all, if the laws they pass are ignored by our elected Congressmen? This is the same Republican party whose campaign slogan was Jobs for the American People. All they seem to want to do is investigate, investigate, investigate. In the past 4 1/2 years Republicans have opposed every jobs bill proposed by the president and the Democratic Party. Wake up voters, before its too late.

It may have been one of the best attended haircuts ever. More than 100 people turned out to the Chabad Jewish Center of Marion County and The Villages in honor of Mendy Hechts 3rd birthday and hair cutting celebration. The guests, following tradition, took turns snipping Mendys long blond wavy hair. In addition to having shorter hair, Mendy will begin wearing the yarmulke, traditional skullcap or head covering, and a tzitzit, a traditional garment with four tassels. Chabad Centers best attended haircut The parents each cut a strand of their first sons hair the biblically-mandated side-locks called the peyot left intact. This is a personal family celebration, but because of the involvement we have with the community, a personal celebration includes everyone, said his father, Rabbi Yossi Hecht, who co-directs the Chabad Center with his wife, Chanie. It marks the start of his formal introduction to Jewish education. It is at this time that a Jewish boy begins to perform mitzvahs (biblical commandments), learn prayers, and develop a love towards God, the torah and his Jewish heritage. In attendance was the Mayor of Ocala Kent Guinn and radio hosts Larry and Robin of WOCA. Guests were invited to a hot buffet lunch as they celebrated the toddlers debut into Judaism.

The Southwest Florida Water Management District is observing May 19-25 as Water Reuse Week. Governor Rick Scott proclaimed Florida Water Reuse Week to highlight the importance of water reuse to the sustainability of Floridas water supply and overall ecosystem. Water reuse is essential to ensuring safe, clean and sustainable water resources. As part of the districts efforts to highlight water reuse awareness throughout our 16-county coverage area, here are five facts about how we are working together to protect Floridas water supply: The district has partnered with Tampa Bay Water to create 110 million gallons per day of new alternative water supplies in the Tampa Bay area. Our district has the lowest per capita usage in the state, with our consumers using 98 gallons per person, per day in the Tampa Bay area. In Florida, the statewide average is 133 gallons per person, per day. Ten percent of all water we use is reclaimed water, which offsets 160 million gallons per day of groundwater throughout the district. District-wide, we have funded enough reclaimed water projects for pipes reaching from Tampa to Washington, D.C. (913 miles). Since 1992, the district has funded indoor and outdoor water conservation projects ranging from toilet rebate/replacements to landscape and irrigation evaluations, conserving over 14.5 million gallons per day of potable water. Thats up to $217 million that didnt need to be spent on creating new alternative water supply.

The front parking lot overflowed into the southside parking area with several tables of items for sale. Spaces were rented for $15 using your own table. Items for sale included a queen size bed spread, roll top desk and chair on casters, golf clubs, and golf club bag carts, a few racks of clothing, paintings and many other items that were too numerous to list. As usual, all funds received will be used for local community projects. There are several locations in the area to drop off used glasses which the Lions can donate. A big hit Saturday was the ice water provided by the Lions. For more information about the Lions contact Lion Bob Melnick at 352-861-730 for a club near you.

It may have been one of the best attended haircuts ever. More than 100 people turned out to the Chabad Jewish Center of Marion County and The Villages in honor of Mendy Hechts 3rd birthday and hair cutting celebration. The guests, following tradition, took turns snipping Mendys long blond wavy hair. In addition to having shorter hair, Mendy will begin wearing the yarmulke, traditional skullcap or head covering, and a tzitzit, a traditional garment with four tassels. Chabad Centers best attended haircut The parents each cut a strand of their first sons hair the biblically-mandated side-locks called the peyot left intact. This is a personal family celebration, but because of the involvement we have with the community, a personal celebration includes everyone, said his father, Rabbi Yossi Hecht, who co-directs the Chabad Center with his wife, Chanie. It marks the start of his formal introduction to Jewish education. It is at this time that a Jewish boy begins to perform mitzvahs (biblical commandments), learn prayers, and develop a love towards God, the torah and his Jewish heritage. In attendance was the Mayor of Ocala Kent Guinn and radio hosts Larry and Robin of WOCA. Guests were invited to a hot buffet lunch as they celebrated the toddlers debut into Judaism.

The Southwest Florida Water Management District is observing May 19-25 as Water Reuse Week. Governor Rick Scott proclaimed Florida Water Reuse Week to highlight the importance of water reuse to the sustainability of Floridas water supply and overall ecosystem. Water reuse is essential to ensuring safe, clean and sustainable water resources. As part of the districts efforts to highlight water reuse awareness throughout our 16-county coverage area, here are five facts about how we are working together to protect Floridas water supply: The district has partnered with Tampa Bay Water to create 110 million gallons per day of new alternative water supplies in the Tampa Bay area. Our district has the lowest per capita usage in the state, with our consumers using 98 gallons per person, per day in the Tampa Bay area. In Florida, the statewide average is 133 gallons per person, per day. Ten percent of all water we use is reclaimed water, which offsets 160 million gallons per day of groundwater throughout the district. District-wide, we have funded enough reclaimed water projects for pipes reaching from Tampa to Washington, D.C. (913 miles). Since 1992, the district has funded indoor and outdoor water conservation projects ranging from toilet rebate/replacements to landscape and irrigation evaluations, conserving over 14.5 million gallons per day of potable water. Thats up to $217 million that didnt need to be spent on creating new alternative water supply.

Friday, May 24, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 24, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Lots of possibilities begin to open up by midweek. Some seem more appealing than others. But wait for more facts to emerge later on before you consider which to choose. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Bravo to the determined Bovine. While others might give up, you continue to search for answers. Expect your Taurean tenacity to begin paying off by weeks end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might want to consider stepping back from the task at hand for a while. This could help you get a perspective on what youve done and what needs to be done. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your keen Cancerian insight should help you determine whether a new offer is solid or just more fluff n stuff. The clues are all there waiting for you to find them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Being ignored is difficult for any proud Leo or Leona. But pushing yourself back into the spotlight might be unwise. Instead, let things work out at their own pace. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Trying to uncover a colleagues secret under the pretext of showing concern is ill-advised. Control your curiosity to avoid raising resentment in the workplace. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Expect to hear good news about a loved one. Also, be prepared for some changes in several family relationships that could develop from this lucky turn of events. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Some surprises are expected to accompany a number of changes that will continue through part of next week. At least one could involve a romantic situation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might be upset by some of your critics. But most of your associates continue to have faith in your ability to get the job done, and done well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A workplace goal that suddenly seems out of reach is no problem for the sure-footed Goat, who moves steadily forward despite any obstacles placed in the way. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Uncertainty about who is right might keep you from making a clear-cut decision. Wait until you know more about what youre being asked to decide. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Be careful to keep your emotions in check when dealing with a demanding personal situation. You need to set an example of strength for others to follow. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an extraordinary ability to rally people to do their best. You would be a treasure as a teacher. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. Our government started bending the truth when it was still a collection of colonies. History teaches that the primary cause of the American Revolution was taxation without representation. There were other issues. The Boston tea party was an uprising against a tax on ship cargo, but its little known that some of the tea-partiers were among the smugglers who supplied 90 percent of the tea being consumed at the time. The British East India Company, which had a tea monopoly, did not appreciate the competition. The colonies had no representatives in the British parliament, and they had to suffer autocratic governors, some of whom were corrupt. Another reason for wanting independence was the colonists unspoken desires to control importation of slaves, and to subjugate and impress native Indians. Explanations of many other events have come under suspicion. In January 1898, our battleship USS Maine entered Havana harbor to protect American business interests during a Cuban revolt against the Spanish government. A few days later the Maine sank when its gunpowder magazines exploded, killing most of the crew. Washington blamed a Spanish mine, and a few months later the U.S. was at war with Spain. The captain of the Maine insisted the sinking was caused by a coal bin explosion. After the war the Maine was raised, and the captains report was confirmed. Similar fact-bending was President Lyndon Johnsons insistence that a torpedo attack in the Gulf of Tonkin justified escalating the Vietnam War. Mr. Johnson relied on a report from an inexperienced sonar operator that there were torpedoes, which was doubtful. The president heard what he wanted to hear, a common audiology malfunction at the White House. The current conflict between the White House and Congress over killings of four Americans in the attack at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, is similar to President Johnsons use of selective information. The Obama White House decided Benghazi would play better as a spontaneous uproar over an anti-Islam movie than an organized terrorist attack at least until after the presidential election. So the nation was told what the White House wanted to hear. More of the same is news that the IRS was over diligent in examining non-profit-status applications by Tea Party organizations. President Obama relies on the Sgt. Schultz defense (from TVs Hogans Heroes): I knew nothing! IRS management claims to have been similarly uninformed. They also heard only what they wanted to hear. In the third recent matter with an odor of truth bending, the Justice Department at first chose to say nothing about tapping phone lines of the Associated Press. As disclosure blossomed, Justice said the matter is a criminal investigation about a leak of classified information. Of course the White House knew nothing about the matter, except what it heard in news reports. Handling of the Benghazi, IRS, and AP embarrassments by the White House confirm Mary Matalins and James Carvilles book title Alls Fair In Love, War, and Running for President, particularly when the elected president never stops campaigning. Responses from Congress are expectable blow-back to persistent political pretzel baking at the White House. As George Orwell said In our age all issues are political and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia. This time of year is always a little bit rough for me. Between local Memorial Day celebrations, the upcoming anniversary of D-Day and TV depictions of soldiers, it brings back some memories of relatives. There was one who never made it home. He was my Uncle Joe and my Godfather, and he was killed in Normandy seven months after I was born. Somewhere I have a picture of him holding me, I think it was on a park bench, and Ive done research and found a picture of his grave in France. Hes listed as Sgt. Joseph Day of Illinois. I have a lot more active memories of my father, who did come home from World War II. He died in 2004 here in Ocala, and he and my mother are buried in the National Cemetery in Bushnell. His strong military background carried over into his civilian life, where he was active in a group called Catholic War Veterans in Bergenfield, New Jersey, where I was raised. I remember him being the guest speaker at the Memorial Day services in front of the Borough Hall, and I recall his talk on teaching patriotism to young people, telling parents to take their children to the various historical sites within driving distance of where I lived, places such as Valley Forge, West Point, and so forth. I recall being an altar boy at church that night for a weekly Novena, and the priest, a Father Genslinger, asked me if my dad had taken me to all those places he mentioned. I was proud to be able to say, Yes, he did. There was another one who came home, my Uncle Ed. He lost an eye in the war, but came back to run a successful restaurant near the financial district in downtown New York. It was called Neils Luncheonette, and was packed at lunchtime every business day. It was a long, thin building with a counter, and the hamburgers? Well, they were made the way hamburgers should be made in a restaurant, not like the fast food places we see today. Listening to the two of them made me appreciate the military members and what they went through during World War II. I also remember the announcement of the start of the Korea War, and my grandmother crying in the kitchen, worrying that both men would have to go back into the Army. Neither one did. All those memories come drifting back the next couple of weeks as we go to various ceremonies and events. The big one in the county will be at Veterans Park next Monday at 10 a.m. This is always a touching event, but its usually brutally hot, and this day will probably be the same. After that, theres a ceremony at Highland Memorial Park, which is always decorated red, white and blue. A lot of people attend both ceremonies, with one following on the heels of the others. Next Monday, make sure you take time to remember those who sacrificed their lives in war for us. That includes all wars, including those who died fighting in Asia recently. Memorial Day is more than barbecues and picnics. Its a day to honor and remember.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

So here we are with another week, another tragedy to discuss. This time it was in Moore, Oklahoma, where a powerful tornado flattened a mile-wide path through the town. Moore is just outside Oklahoma City, and is the home of country singer Toby Keith, who is on the ground helping, and of New York Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner, who was pulled out of batting practice the afternoon of the storm and told by team officials to take time to contact his family. Relatives of both men are safe. Probably the biggest talking point has been safe rooms and storm cellars, particularly where it involves the two elementary schools in the path. An older school was damaged and a number of children injured or killed. Students did what many of us were taught, to go into the hall away from windows, but many then ended up in bathrooms huddled together. One of the more touching stories was that of a teacher who was in a bathroom stall covering four little boys. She said one of the boys asked if they were going to die, and she told him she would protect him, which she did. Then she added that she did something as a teacher youre probably not supposed to do I prayed out loud. Television networks and other journalists descended upon the area, wringing their hands and discussing how terrible it was while promoting special shows that undoubtedly would help ratings. The local TV reporters who we heard initially got emotional, because they were talking about their own friends and relatives. Some may not consider that professional, but it was real, compelling television. The newer school had a safe area built into the school, and students reportedly escaped harm. In the area, few homes have basements because the soil makes them susceptible to flooding. But after two other tornadoes in the past 15 years, many people built storm shelters in their back yards and were able to make use of them for themselves and neighbors. Were heading into hurricane season here in Florida, but as many have pointed out, at least with a hurricane you have many days notice that its coming. Not so about tornadoes, which can pop up anytime theres a severe weather threat. But with the hurricane season due, its time to remember that everyone can be a victim of severe weather. Make sure youre prepared. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Have they forgotten our Supreme Court voted to uphold A.H.C. Why have a Supreme Court at all, if the laws they pass are ignored by our elected Congressmen? This is the same Republican party whose campaign slogan was Jobs for the American People. All they seem to want to do is investigate, investigate, investigate. In the past 4 1/2 years Republicans have opposed every jobs bill proposed by the president and the Democratic Party. Wake up voters, before its too late.

erations who have never experienced adversity seem to think there is something drastically wrong with America. Humans who have life too easy, life without an iota of strife or struggle, have a perverted view of what constitutes life. Life has never been a free ride, or picnic for any generation. A wake up call is needed for Boomer Boobs and their progeny People with a distorted view of life, need a little strife in order to appreciate what they have. As we can observe, getting things too easily produces marshmallows, humans with a distorted perspective on life. Boo, hoo, hoo, we want stuff without effort. Rome did itself in. Today we have a few more spoons in the soup vying for the big prize, America. We have homegrown progressives/communists, Islamists, globalists; environmentalists all want the big prize. None of these are acceptable options. America is damaged, it needs a little housecleaning, and repair. It is still the best game on this planet. Let us get on with our fixer upper government, and make it work. America is worth saving, just as it is. Clean out the bugs. Repeal Federal Reserve Act of 1913, Get out of U.N. Dump Obamacare. (it is going to kill us, literally. Especially old folks). No lobbying. No federal education department.

Larson, OcalaAs goes MaineMaine became the 13th state to seek a constitutional amendment to reverse a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that allows unrestricted campaign spending by corporations and wealthy individuals. Other states calling on Congress for a constitutional amendment are Vermont, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, Rhode Island and West Virginia. About time this Supreme Court ruling was reversed! Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunBenghazi attackWhy did the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attack happen in the first place? After the horrific 9/11/01 attack, we went 10 years without being attacked on 9/11, even after Seal Team 6 killed bin Laden in May of 2011 and Sept. 11, 2011 was the tenth anniversary. Then in May 2012, President Obama toured the country with speeches spiking the football on the bin Laden killing. He also bragged that he had Al Qaeda on the run, that he had put it on life support. This gave Al Qaeda great motive to show that they were still dangerous and effective. Survivors of and witnesses to the Benghazi attack said the terrorists were chanting We are Usama! Nuff said. Al Shumard Pine RunFriday, May 24, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, May 24, 2013 www .smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenThe Internal Revenue Service has been caught engaging in political profiling while processing applications for tax-exempt status. In this case it was against organizations with tea-party or patriot in their names and other right-wing groups. Next time it could be libertarian or left-wing antiwar and pro-civil-liberties groups. No dissenter can ever rest assured he is safe from the arbitrary power of the IRS. Nothing will have been learned from this scandal if all that happens is the firing of some IRS administrators and the issuance of new guidelines on 501(c)(4) applications. That is not nearly enough. Obviously, tax exemptions exist only because individuals and some organizations are subject to income and other forms of taxation. Congress levies a tax on incomes, then in its wisdom chooses to exempt certain activities but Abolish the IRS and the income tax with it PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE10 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comA Memorial Day Service, bowling activities, and an opportunity to save a life constitute this weeks OTOW Happenings.Lions ClubThe OTOW Lions Club will honor our nations fallen veterans on Memorial Day, May 27.

Cash prizes were also awarded for individual achievements (one prize per person except for most improved bowlers). The most improved female bowler was Jeanne Sippin who improved her average by 13 pins over her prior years average. Bob Redden improved his prior year average by 14 pins. High average for the year was achieved by Rick DAddio with an outstanding 181. Linda McIntyre was tops for the women at 158.

OTOW Lions planning for Memorial Day service SHANGHAI GIRLS By Lisa See In 1937, exciting Shanghai was considered the Paris of the East. In that year young, nubile sisters Pearl and May were calendar girls promoting, in their gorgeous Westernized gowns, a new China free of arranged marriages and antiquated customs. Life for them was good. Father was prosperous; there were servants and plenty of spending money. The irony was that, unbeknownst to the girls, it was all faade and about to come crashing down at the same time the Japanese were invading their homeland. Their father was deeply in debt to gangsters and could save the familys lives only by selling his daughters into arranged marriages. It was their burden to serve as sacrificial lambs. The wonderment of this beautiful book is their indomitable spirit in shouldering responsibility for their fathers sins even though it brings them a life of incredible want and ugliness. In a low-rent, grimy Los Angeles apartment Pearl scrubs the revolting bathroom mess her tyrannical father-in-law leaves every day and toils in the tiny kitchen while May picks up menial jobs in China City. Pearls husband Sam is distant, aloof, and Mays teenage husband Vern is childish and both mentally and physically challenged. Can anything positive arise out of such grim reality? The answer is yes and its a baby girl named Joy that does brighten their dreary Chinese father sells his daughters lives. Although the sisters cling to each other for support, all between them does not run smoothly. There is jealousy, misunderstanding, and even betrayal. But the need to forgive is best expressed by Pearl: For every awful thing thats been said and done, she is my sister. Parents die, daughters grow up and marry out, but sisters are for life. She is the only person left in the world who shares my memories of our childhood, our parents, our Shanghai, our struggles, our sorrows, and yes, even our moments of happiness and triumph. NOTE: Because the conclusion of Shanghai Girls is a cliffhanger, readers may wish to pick up the sequelDreams of Joy.

Friday, May 24, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, May 24, 2013 www .smcitizen.com not others. This is social engineering, with Congress seeking to encourage some kinds of organizations while not forgoing more revenue than necessary. The IRS then writes rules to carry out the directions of Congress. Where possible, people will naturally strive to qualify for exemption by pushing the boundaries of the regulations. That incentive will always be strong because a nonprofit organization that is exempt from taxation will have more resources with which to pursue its mission. Since the language of statutes and regulations is inevitably vague, the IRS will have room to interpret when ruling on who qualifies and who doesnt qualify for exemption. The line between vigilance and harassment is not bright, and the potential for abuse is great. It should be apparent that this power, which is inherently arbitrary, ill suits a society that sees itself as free. Take the current controversy. The IRS says that to qualify for 501(c)(4) taxexempt status, a nonprofit organization must be operated exclusively to promote social welfare. To do that the organization must operate primarily to further the common good and general welfare of the people of the community (such as by bringing about civic betterment and social improvements). What exactly constitutes the common good and general welfare of the people of the community, or civic betterment and social improvements? The IRS will let you know. What does primarily mean and how does it relate to the seemingly contradictory exclusivity requirement? This is subject to a facts and circumstances test that is, the IRS will decide. Approved activities are generally regarded as educational, but how broadly or narrowly that term is interpreted is left to the IRS and, if challenged, to the courts. Lobbying for legislation germane to the organizations programs is a permissible means of attaining social welfare purposes. However, direct or indirect participation in political campaigns is not regarded as promotion of social welfare although an organization may engage in some political activities, so long as that is not its primary activity. However, any expenditure it makes for political activities may be subject to tax. As this demonstrates, once government undertakes to tax income, it acquires even more power through its authority to define income, taxable income, subsidiary terms, and the rules of exemption. There is no escape from arbitrariness and caprice. One might propose to remove the governments arbitrary power by ending tax exemption. But that would make the tax burden worse. And besides, politicians arent likely to agree, because they would be giving up the power to dispense favors that manipulation of todays tax code affords. Theres a better way to go thats demanded by liberty and justice. Since taxation is nothing less than the confiscation, under threat of force, of what belongs to productive individuals, it has no place in a free society. In other words, everyone should be exempt from income and other taxation. (Americans lived without income taxation for more than 125 years.) If something cant be accomplished through consent, contract, and cooperation without aggressive force we should ask whether it is worth doing. When the income tax was first proposed in America years ago, opponents always had the same word of warning: inquisitorial. How right they were.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org).

When Jane and I go grocery shopping we divide the list, take separate carts and meet near the checkout area. Recently I finished first. While waiting at the end of an aisle I saw a new brand of bottled ice tea. Its ingredients were purified water, organic cane sugar, fair trade organic tea leaves and natural favor. The companys name was Honest. Really, it was Honest tea. That got me thinking about todays Pun Alley.Taking it with youA billionaire died, leaving his fortune to his only living friends, a doctor, a CEO, and a lawyer. Being very eccentric, his will stipulated that each one must place their third of the money in his coffin before he is put in his final resting place. After the funeral the three friends talked about the eccentric. The doctor said, I have to be honest, I didnt place all the money into his coffin, I kept five million. Then the CEO stated, Well, I have to admit that I too kept some of the cash, 10 million to be exact. The Lawyer glared at the two and said, I am ashamed of you two, I wrote a check for the full amount.Nine times honestWhen a man applied for a job in a department store he could only produce one reference that, he thought, would vouch for him. A clerk contacted the reference and asked him if the applicant was honest. Honest? the reference said. Why, his honestys been proven again and again. To my certain knowledge hes been arrested nine times for stealing and every time he was acquitted.To the pointAfter an argument the husband was throwing knives at his wifes picture while she was out. All were missing the target. When he received a call from her, she asked, What are you doing? His honest reply was, Missing you.Truths?Be on the level and you wont go downhill. Tom: Smiths a cheat, and Im not gonna play golf with him again. Andy: Why not, something happen? Tom: Well, how could he find his lost ball a yard from the green when all the time it was in my pocket? Sign in a butcher shop: Honest scales. No two weighs about it. Honesty has one great advantage. You never have to remember anything. Wife: The cleaning woman must have stolen two of our new towels. Husband: Well, some people are like that. Which towels were they? Wife: Oh, you know. The ones we brought back from the hotel in Des Moines. Have you ever heard of an honest cheetah? An honest politician is any public servant wholl stay bought when you buy him. A prize was first awarded for honesty in Europe. If you were and still are completely honest in your product advertisements, you are eligible to win the No-Bull Award. Honesty is the best policy because it has so little competition. A window sign: Tax Returns Prepared Honest Mistakes Are Our Specialty.Back in the old daysI am going away for a few days, Bridget, said the lady of the house to her servant girl, and I am going to leave with you all my keys, those to my closets as well as those to my chests and jewel boxes. I know that they will be safe with you, but, of course, I expect you not to touch them. When the mistress returned, the girl said to her, Madam, Im going to leave you. Why, Bridget? Because you dont trust me. How can you say that, when I left you with all my keys? That you did, but not one of them fits. WisdomThe boss explained the facts of business life to a new employee. If you want to succeed in business, you need two things honesty and smarts. Whats honesty? The truth. Keep your word when youve given it. What are smarts? Never give your word! Game calledAt long last the boss felt compelled to call Fitch into his office. It has not escaped my attention, he pointed out, that every time theres a big home game, you have to take your aunt to the doctor. You know youre right, sir, exclaimed Fitch. I hadnt realized. You dont suppose shes faking it, do you? Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Friday, May 24, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, May 24, 2013 www .smcitizen.com Ihave concluded that life, as it stands out in the public arena, is a very confusing thing. As I watched the news and see scandal after scandal unfold and people trying to dance around the facts so that they come out looking good, I am reminded of how that doesnt work for me. I have a new TV show I want to pitch to someone. I am calling it, Dancing with the Idiots. The genius of the show is there is no shortage of contestants. The problem with this show would be who is the idiot to beat all idiots? Since I am not a very good dancer this does not work for me. I think the difference is, I have to answer to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Believe me, she was not born yesterday but I will not give the exact year for obvious reasons. I used to do that but that is when I learned I could not dance, at all. When I was very young and more confused than I am today I thought I could get away with anything. Believe me, I tried. I could write a book, but then there are so many people I would not want to read it that it would not be worth publishing. One problem is associated with this kind of thinking. If you get away with something, who in the world can you brag to about it? If I do something behind my wifes back and actually get away with it, where is the consolation prize? I think the only thing that really illustrates this is fishing. When I was younger, I loved to fish. The wonderful world of angling consists of two kinds of fishermen: those who brag a lot and those who catch a lot and the twain shall never cross rods. I was an avid fisherman and it was a long time before I figured out that in the 23rd Psalm David is not talking about a fishing rod when he says, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Be that as it may, my fishing rod did a great deal of comforting me back in the day. When I would go fishing and come home empty-handed, I could brag about the big one that got away. Of course, every time I told the story the fish got just a little bit bigger. But who is going to correct me on that? Who is to say that it was not really that big? Or, even bigger? When I came home with a bunch of fish, the catch spoke for itself. After all, how in the world can you exaggerate something when it is right before you? Who do you think I am? A politician? If you do think you are getting away with something, somebody will see you and share that information with somebody else who will share that information with somebody else until it has come full circle. Thus begins the dizzy world of confusion. Just this week, for example, I was caught. I hate getting caught. I had come home after a long day at the office and my wife greeted me with, I saw Mrs. Jones who said she saw Mrs. Smith who told her that Mrs. Grant saw you buying an Apple Fritter at Publix. Is there any truth in it? Any husband knows he will never win any argument when there are four women who testify to the contrary of what he is about to say. The best procedure at this point is to fall on the mercy of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Because, I have discovered the great secret to marital bliss. Simply put, when she is happy, I am happy. The trick is to find out what makes her happy. When I am thus caught with the alleged Apple Fritter, she is happiest when I confess and say the magical words, Youre right! Arguments have disappeared. The only thing I have to hear now is, Well, dont let it happen again. And the marital bliss is back on track and I have averted a personal train wreck. A long time ago, I understood the difference between being happy and being right. Yes, there is that time when you need to stand your ground regardless of the consequence. My philosophy of life is to simply pick your battles very carefully. Not every battle is worth the scars. After all, when you are caught with the goods in hand, denying it is the epitome of stupidity. Unless I am a politician, I want to stay away from stupidity as much as possible. The thing about denying the scandal you might be in at the time is, it only prolongs the focus on the scandal. Perhaps some politicians could take my advice and confess fully when caught with the goods in hand. Saying, Im sorry, is the first step in putting something behind you. Someone said that confession is good for the soul. It is good for many other things as well. The Bible is sure good on this aspect of confession. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9 KJV). The world can be very confusing if we are not willing to fess up and try straightening things out.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Twenty residents boarded the pontoon boat for the 10 a.m. tour and a dozen took the noon tour which navigated the Rainbow and Withlacoochee Rivers. Captain Jon shared his knowledge of Floridas ecology and history through story and song. The tour offered education about the local area and its history, as well as the environment and wildlife along the beautiful waters of the crystal clear spring-fed Rainbow River and the dark, swamp-fed Withlacoochee River. Afterward, some of the group stayed for lunch at The Blue Gator. Many thanks go to Kathy Keables for all her hard work in planning and organizing this terrific trip.

Read the classifieds nately, her mom survived and went on to have 10 more children including Sheila. In a house in County Donegal near the small village of Annagry, Sheila grew up with her nine brothers and sisters. Her father worked for the government inspecting bridges and roads throughout the area. Sheila recalls that he rode his bicycle to every job in all kinds of weather. For her part, Sheilas mom had her hands full raising 10 children. Sheila still remembers one day when her mother wasnt home when she returned from school. Her mom had gone to town to get her teeth pulled but it was the only day that she wasnt there to greet her children at the door. Their home, was situated on a small farm and like most in that time, it had no running water or electricity. Light was provided by kerosene lanterns and water was drawn from a common well. In the winter months, heat was supplied by burning peat; not the person, the mossy type material that is indigenous to the area. Sheila and her brother were tasked with supplying the peat moss for the family. Going to the bog and cutting; lifting the slabs onto a mule drawn wagon and then stacking it to be dried was hard and tedious work. In those days, in order to survive, each child had their chores to do. School was provided by the government but the language was Gaelic with English as a second language. Each year, an inspector would come to the school and ask the children a series of questions. The students would be expected to answer them in Gaelic and if they successfully completed the test, they would receive an award of two pounds each. Sheila related that her and her brothers and sisters always used the two pounds to purchase winter boots. As Sheila grew older, she had the opportunity to attend a technical school. She began course work in what we would now call, Home Economics. Growing up on a farm she certainly knew about that subject. Cooking was not like it is today with modern ranges. There were no temperature controls on coal or wood burning stoves and that was all they had in the classroom. This was shortly after World War II and most of Europe was starving. When it came time for the cooking contest Sheila lucked out and drew a meal of roast beef; potato soup; Yorkshire pudding; mashed potatoes and a beverage. Everything had to be cooked and served warm to the judges with absolutely no waste products. Since she had been preparing or helping to prepare such meals all of her life, the task was not too difficult for her. Unfortunately, while her meal turned out perfect, she had one small scrape of pastry left over from the Yorkshire pudding. This was noted by the judge and she didnt win. Had she won that contest, she might well have gone on to a position in restaurant or hotel management. Things have a way of working out however and Sheila got an opportunity to enter the medical field as a nurse. At 18, she moved to Birmingham, England and began a three and a half-year training program. Ten and 12 hour days were common but on the weekends, she and life long friend Vi Ferris would go out and party. Sheila remembers fondly the day she was caught sleeping at work after a long night in town. Needless to say the supervisor wasnt too happy with her and assigned a scary looking male to accompany her for the rest of her shift. While in nursing school Vi and Sheila decided to take up midwifery. Both had an urge to travel and seek new adventures. After completing their courses of study, they were reading a magazine and found an offer to work in Canada. The Canadian hospital would pay their fare over so they took the opportunity. This began a long journey for the young woman born in Ireland. The hospital where the work was located was in Saskatchewan, approximately in the middle of Canada. After the voyage over, she and Vi had a long train ride into the cold north country. They enjoyed the adventure and travel, however and didnt even mind the money taken from their paychecks to pay for their passage over. The United States was a place where everyone wanted to be so Sheila applied for and was approved to move to Detroit, Michigan. She found the work extensive and trying since they put her in charge of entire floors of women who were either giving birth or had just given birth. An opening came up in a Morristown, New Jersey, hospital and Sheila jumped at the opportunity. It was while in Newton, New Jersey, where she lived that one Christmas she was persuaded to go on a blind date. It was then that she met Harold. Harold was a veteran of the Royal Navy working in a munitions plant in Newton. Between Christmas and New Years they met, and in May they became engaged. In August they married and began their lives together. The two of them would have four children including twin sons; Tim and Terrence and Kevin and daughter Annmarie. That was the end of Sheilas nursing career but only temporarily. When her children were in high school, she would return to her profession. Harold grew tired of his work at the munitions factory and became a supervisor at a company providing expedient packaging services for the government. Also, always active in their community, Sheila has served on the Town Council and Board of Health while Harold served on the Board of Education. Following his retirement, Harold wanted to move some place warm. From a magazine article he and Sheila found Cherrywood estates. That was 14 years ago. They enjoyed their home together until six months ago when Harold passed away. Sheila has, in addition to her four children, seven grandchildren and one great grandchild on the way. She is looking forward to her daughters visit next week and loves the people surrounding her here in Cherrywood. As for her friend Vi, yes, they are still friends after all these years. Recently Sheila was seriously ill with a reaction to a drug that raised her blood pressure to one ninety. She was reminded of her father who lived to be 93 years old. One day the doctor had come by and given him some pills. When the doctor left, her dad gave the envelope with the tablets to his youngest child and said, Here, throw this in the fire place. Much to the disapproval of the family, she did and the pills were destroyed. Sheila probably wishes she had done the same with her prescription. Four of Sheilas siblings are still alive; brothers Brandon and John in England and twin sister Nora and Peg in Ireland. In last weeks edition of the Citizen, Sheila expressed her deep appreciation to her neighbors who came to her assistance when the wind blew down a huge tree on her property. This week we would like to thank Sheila for sharing her story and her life with us here at Cherrywood. She is a loving friend; a great neighbor and an asset to our quality of life.From your reporterThis is a busy time of year for all of our people here at Cherrywood.

As each type of wine was tasted, it was obvious that there is a vast difference in sweet and dry wines and those in between. Distributing the samples were volunteers Marti Duesel; Peggy Konar, Genevieve Downs and our own Geri. These ladies were very efficient in making sure everyone got a taste as the consultants gave an explanation of each variety. You too can become part of the PRP family and have your own wine consultant to advise you and insure your total satisfaction when ordering wines for all occasions. If you are interested in having Joe do a presentation in your home or your community, please contact Geri at 352-237-1675 Additional volunteers were Jay OHern; Fred and Marion OHern; Mick and Donna James; Marty Duesel; and Richard and Monica Becotte. They, along with our Social Committee, provided this excellent opportunity to the community to learn about and enjoy a taste of wines from around the country and the world. Wacky Crazy fashion show a hitOver 100 residents purchased tickets and came to the clubhouse on Wednesday, May 15 to witness what can only be described as the craziest fashion show ever. Flower child Eve Houghtaling and the Activities Committee did a fantastic job of providing sweets and a show that wont soon be forgotten. Joanie (John) Everlove emceed the proceedings as over a dozen models brought their fashion tastes or lack of fashion taste down the runway. Rich Becotte played music that was tailor made for each model as they strolled past the audience and judges. Rich Hurley took first place in the contest with his Cockney peddlers costume complete with a vast array of buttons and an authentic antique venders cap. Mick James and Jerry Moscariello tied for second place. Jerry was dressed in the latest, well maybe the earliest, of street fashion while Mick showed off the all weather gear of a Tour De France bicyclist. There was another tie in the standings as Ann Bardack dressed and looked like the belle of the Grand Old Opry, Minnie Pearl. Jim Houghtaling was costumed as a man who survived to the year 2525; looking good for a man that age. Both Ann and Jim tied for the third place winnings. Other contestants were Loretta Moscariello; Dave Bragdon; Bonnie Clark; Joyce Stacer; Holly Bragdon; Midge Lee; Lentz Henderson and Bill Brotherhood. Each had a unique costume and style that brought roars of laughter from the audience. Special appreciation is expressed to Arleen Mayberry; Ruth and Rich Hurley; Christl Giovanniello; Midge Lee; Ida Mahar; and Eve Houghtaling for the desserts. They were ample and delicious. Everyone did a great job and provided hilarious humor for the guests. Theres talk of even more contestants next year so Eve and her committee can be justly proud of the work they put into this show. To say that a good time was had by all would be a gross understatement.Veterans Club On June 6 at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse the Cherrywood Veterans Club will hold its monthly meeting. Our special guests this month will be Al Morrison and some of the clients of Ritz House for Homeless Veterans. Al is the director of Ritz House. This will be an excellent chance for our residents and veterans to hear directly from those who are involved in this worthy program. Learn how education; support and guidance are helping these individuals overcome drug and alcohol addiction; find jobs; and get an education. Being brought back into society is no easy road but many have and are taking advantage of the opportunities provided. At our meeting, those who are working so hard will have a chance to tell their stories and offer a brief overview of the various programs that they are taking advantage of. Following the brief presentation our guests will be taking questions from the audience on any topic our members or friends would like to ask. We are hoping for a big turn out at this meeting to welcome and learn from these fellow veterans. After the residents of Ritz House leave, our usual order of business will be conducted. There will no meetings in June and July so a brief overview of our plans will be put on the floor for discussion. When the meeting concludes, all attendees are invited to join out on the patio for free liquid refreshments. Please plan to attend.Hot Summer NightsWhat could be better on a hot summer night than a romantic dance at pool side? Thats what we thought too, so on June 22, we are going to have a pizza and dance party in the romantic atmosphere of our pool and patio. Tickets are just $4 per person for entertainment; pizza; iced tea and lemonade. Now if your taste buds require some different type of beverage, bring it along but remember, theres no glass containers allowed near the pool. Plastic or cans are more than welcome. Watch for more details in the Citizen and your June Chirp magazine but plan to come out and enjoy balmy breezes; soft music and a fun evening of dancing and socializing with your friends. The party starts at 7 and runs until 10 in the evening. See you there.Food DrivePlan now to join the Cherrywood VetCHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 New Cherrywood residents Holly Gill, Elaine and Marty Gatley, Donna and Bernie Hoefs, Sandra and Chris Weiss, Dolores and Paul Groendyke, Ken and Janice McLeod and (not in photo) Dick Hamm.

As each type of wine was tasted, it was obvious that there is a vast difference in sweet and dry wines and those in between. Distributing the samples were volunteers Marti Duesel; Peggy Konar, Genevieve Downs and our own Geri. These ladies were very efficient in making sure everyone got a taste as the consultants gave an explanation of each variety. You too can become part of the PRP family and have your own wine consultant to advise you and insure your total satisfaction when ordering wines for all occasions. If you are interested in having Joe do a presentation in your home or your community, please contact Geri at 352-237-1675 Additional volunteers were Jay OHern; Fred and Marion OHern; Mick and Donna James; Marty Duesel; and Richard and Monica Becotte. They, along with our Social Committee, provided this excellent opportunity to the community to learn about and enjoy a taste of wines from around the country and the world. Wacky Crazy fashion show a hitOver 100 residents purchased tickets and came to the clubhouse on Wednesday, May 15 to witness what can only be described as the craziest fashion show ever. Flower child Eve Houghtaling and the Activities Committee did a fantastic job of providing sweets and a show that wont soon be forgotten. Joanie (John) Everlove emceed the proceedings as over a dozen models brought their fashion tastes or lack of fashion taste down the runway. Rich Becotte played music that was tailor made for each model as they strolled past the audience and judges. Rich Hurley took first place in the contest with his Cockney peddlers costume complete with a vast array of buttons and an authentic antique venders cap. Mick James and Jerry Moscariello tied for second place. Jerry was dressed in the latest, well maybe the earliest, of street fashion while Mick showed off the all weather gear of a Tour De France bicyclist. There was another tie in the standings as Ann Bardack dressed and looked like the belle of the Grand Old Opry, Minnie Pearl. Jim Houghtaling was costumed as a man who survived to the year 2525; looking good for a man that age. Both Ann and Jim tied for the third place winnings. Other contestants were Loretta Moscariello; Dave Bragdon; Bonnie Clark; Joyce Stacer; Holly Bragdon; Midge Lee; Lentz Henderson and Bill Brotherhood. Each had a unique costume and style that brought roars of laughter from the audience. Special appreciation is expressed to Arleen Mayberry; Ruth and Rich Hurley; Christl Giovanniello; Midge Lee; Ida Mahar; and Eve Houghtaling for the desserts. They were ample and delicious. Everyone did a great job and provided hilarious humor for the guests. Theres talk of even more contestants next year so Eve and her committee can be justly proud of the work they put into this show. To say that a good time was had by all would be a gross understatement.Veterans Club On June 6 at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse the Cherrywood Veterans Club will hold its monthly meeting. Our special guests this month will be Al Morrison and some of the clients of Ritz House for Homeless Veterans. Al is the director of Ritz House. This will be an excellent chance for our residents and veterans to hear directly from those who are involved in this worthy program. Learn how education; support and guidance are helping these individuals overcome drug and alcohol addiction; find jobs; and get an education. Being brought back into society is no easy road but many have and are taking advantage of the opportunities provided. At our meeting, those who are working so hard will have a chance to tell their stories and offer a brief overview of the various programs that they are taking advantage of. Following the brief presentation our guests will be taking questions from the audience on any topic our members or friends would like to ask. We are hoping for a big turn out at this meeting to welcome and learn from these fellow veterans. After the residents of Ritz House leave, our usual order of business will be conducted. There will no meetings in June and July so a brief overview of our plans will be put on the floor for discussion. When the meeting concludes, all attendees are invited to join out on the patio for free liquid refreshments. Please plan to attend.Hot Summer NightsWhat could be better on a hot summer night than a romantic dance at pool side? Thats what we thought too, so on June 22, we are going to have a pizza and dance party in the romantic atmosphere of our pool and patio. Tickets are just $4 per person for entertainment; pizza; iced tea and lemonade. Now if your taste buds require some different type of beverage, bring it along but remember, theres no glass containers allowed near the pool. Plastic or cans are more than welcome. Watch for more details in the Citizen and your June Chirp magazine but plan to come out and enjoy balmy breezes; soft music and a fun evening of dancing and socializing with your friends. The party starts at 7 and runs until 10 in the evening. See you there.Food DrivePlan now to join the Cherrywood VetCHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 New Cherrywood residents Holly Gill, Elaine and Marty Gatley, Donna and Bernie Hoefs, Sandra and Chris Weiss, Dolores and Paul Groendyke, Ken and Janice McLeod and (not in photo) Dick Hamm.

Read the classifieds nately, her mom survived and went on to have 10 more children including Sheila. In a house in County Donegal near the small village of Annagry, Sheila grew up with her nine brothers and sisters. Her father worked for the government inspecting bridges and roads throughout the area. Sheila recalls that he rode his bicycle to every job in all kinds of weather. For her part, Sheilas mom had her hands full raising 10 children. Sheila still remembers one day when her mother wasnt home when she returned from school. Her mom had gone to town to get her teeth pulled but it was the only day that she wasnt there to greet her children at the door. Their home, was situated on a small farm and like most in that time, it had no running water or electricity. Light was provided by kerosene lanterns and water was drawn from a common well. In the winter months, heat was supplied by burning peat; not the person, the mossy type material that is indigenous to the area. Sheila and her brother were tasked with supplying the peat moss for the family. Going to the bog and cutting; lifting the slabs onto a mule drawn wagon and then stacking it to be dried was hard and tedious work. In those days, in order to survive, each child had their chores to do. School was provided by the government but the language was Gaelic with English as a second language. Each year, an inspector would come to the school and ask the children a series of questions. The students would be expected to answer them in Gaelic and if they successfully completed the test, they would receive an award of two pounds each. Sheila related that her and her brothers and sisters always used the two pounds to purchase winter boots. As Sheila grew older, she had the opportunity to attend a technical school. She began course work in what we would now call, Home Economics. Growing up on a farm she certainly knew about that subject. Cooking was not like it is today with modern ranges. There were no temperature controls on coal or wood burning stoves and that was all they had in the classroom. This was shortly after World War II and most of Europe was starving. When it came time for the cooking contest Sheila lucked out and drew a meal of roast beef; potato soup; Yorkshire pudding; mashed potatoes and a beverage. Everything had to be cooked and served warm to the judges with absolutely no waste products. Since she had been preparing or helping to prepare such meals all of her life, the task was not too difficult for her. Unfortunately, while her meal turned out perfect, she had one small scrape of pastry left over from the Yorkshire pudding. This was noted by the judge and she didnt win. Had she won that contest, she might well have gone on to a position in restaurant or hotel management. Things have a way of working out however and Sheila got an opportunity to enter the medical field as a nurse. At 18, she moved to Birmingham, England and began a three and a half-year training program. Ten and 12 hour days were common but on the weekends, she and life long friend Vi Ferris would go out and party. Sheila remembers fondly the day she was caught sleeping at work after a long night in town. Needless to say the supervisor wasnt too happy with her and assigned a scary looking male to accompany her for the rest of her shift. While in nursing school Vi and Sheila decided to take up midwifery. Both had an urge to travel and seek new adventures. After completing their courses of study, they were reading a magazine and found an offer to work in Canada. The Canadian hospital would pay their fare over so they took the opportunity. This began a long journey for the young woman born in Ireland. The hospital where the work was located was in Saskatchewan, approximately in the middle of Canada. After the voyage over, she and Vi had a long train ride into the cold north country. They enjoyed the adventure and travel, however and didnt even mind the money taken from their paychecks to pay for their passage over. The United States was a place where everyone wanted to be so Sheila applied for and was approved to move to Detroit, Michigan. She found the work extensive and trying since they put her in charge of entire floors of women who were either giving birth or had just given birth. An opening came up in a Morristown, New Jersey, hospital and Sheila jumped at the opportunity. It was while in Newton, New Jersey, where she lived that one Christmas she was persuaded to go on a blind date. It was then that she met Harold. Harold was a veteran of the Royal Navy working in a munitions plant in Newton. Between Christmas and New Years they met, and in May they became engaged. In August they married and began their lives together. The two of them would have four children including twin sons; Tim and Terrence and Kevin and daughter Annmarie. That was the end of Sheilas nursing career but only temporarily. When her children were in high school, she would return to her profession. Harold grew tired of his work at the munitions factory and became a supervisor at a company providing expedient packaging services for the government. Also, always active in their community, Sheila has served on the Town Council and Board of Health while Harold served on the Board of Education. Following his retirement, Harold wanted to move some place warm. From a magazine article he and Sheila found Cherrywood estates. That was 14 years ago. They enjoyed their home together until six months ago when Harold passed away. Sheila has, in addition to her four children, seven grandchildren and one great grandchild on the way. She is looking forward to her daughters visit next week and loves the people surrounding her here in Cherrywood. As for her friend Vi, yes, they are still friends after all these years. Recently Sheila was seriously ill with a reaction to a drug that raised her blood pressure to one ninety. She was reminded of her father who lived to be 93 years old. One day the doctor had come by and given him some pills. When the doctor left, her dad gave the envelope with the tablets to his youngest child and said, Here, throw this in the fire place. Much to the disapproval of the family, she did and the pills were destroyed. Sheila probably wishes she had done the same with her prescription. Four of Sheilas siblings are still alive; brothers Brandon and John in England and twin sister Nora and Peg in Ireland. In last weeks edition of the Citizen, Sheila expressed her deep appreciation to her neighbors who came to her assistance when the wind blew down a huge tree on her property. This week we would like to thank Sheila for sharing her story and her life with us here at Cherrywood. She is a loving friend; a great neighbor and an asset to our quality of life.From your reporterThis is a busy time of year for all of our people here at Cherrywood.

Friday, May 24, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, May 24, 2013 www .smcitizen.com Ihave concluded that life, as it stands out in the public arena, is a very confusing thing. As I watched the news and see scandal after scandal unfold and people trying to dance around the facts so that they come out looking good, I am reminded of how that doesnt work for me. I have a new TV show I want to pitch to someone. I am calling it, Dancing with the Idiots. The genius of the show is there is no shortage of contestants. The problem with this show would be who is the idiot to beat all idiots? Since I am not a very good dancer this does not work for me. I think the difference is, I have to answer to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Believe me, she was not born yesterday but I will not give the exact year for obvious reasons. I used to do that but that is when I learned I could not dance, at all. When I was very young and more confused than I am today I thought I could get away with anything. Believe me, I tried. I could write a book, but then there are so many people I would not want to read it that it would not be worth publishing. One problem is associated with this kind of thinking. If you get away with something, who in the world can you brag to about it? If I do something behind my wifes back and actually get away with it, where is the consolation prize? I think the only thing that really illustrates this is fishing. When I was younger, I loved to fish. The wonderful world of angling consists of two kinds of fishermen: those who brag a lot and those who catch a lot and the twain shall never cross rods. I was an avid fisherman and it was a long time before I figured out that in the 23rd Psalm David is not talking about a fishing rod when he says, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Be that as it may, my fishing rod did a great deal of comforting me back in the day. When I would go fishing and come home empty-handed, I could brag about the big one that got away. Of course, every time I told the story the fish got just a little bit bigger. But who is going to correct me on that? Who is to say that it was not really that big? Or, even bigger? When I came home with a bunch of fish, the catch spoke for itself. After all, how in the world can you exaggerate something when it is right before you? Who do you think I am? A politician? If you do think you are getting away with something, somebody will see you and share that information with somebody else who will share that information with somebody else until it has come full circle. Thus begins the dizzy world of confusion. Just this week, for example, I was caught. I hate getting caught. I had come home after a long day at the office and my wife greeted me with, I saw Mrs. Jones who said she saw Mrs. Smith who told her that Mrs. Grant saw you buying an Apple Fritter at Publix. Is there any truth in it? Any husband knows he will never win any argument when there are four women who testify to the contrary of what he is about to say. The best procedure at this point is to fall on the mercy of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Because, I have discovered the great secret to marital bliss. Simply put, when she is happy, I am happy. The trick is to find out what makes her happy. When I am thus caught with the alleged Apple Fritter, she is happiest when I confess and say the magical words, Youre right! Arguments have disappeared. The only thing I have to hear now is, Well, dont let it happen again. And the marital bliss is back on track and I have averted a personal train wreck. A long time ago, I understood the difference between being happy and being right. Yes, there is that time when you need to stand your ground regardless of the consequence. My philosophy of life is to simply pick your battles very carefully. Not every battle is worth the scars. After all, when you are caught with the goods in hand, denying it is the epitome of stupidity. Unless I am a politician, I want to stay away from stupidity as much as possible. The thing about denying the scandal you might be in at the time is, it only prolongs the focus on the scandal. Perhaps some politicians could take my advice and confess fully when caught with the goods in hand. Saying, Im sorry, is the first step in putting something behind you. Someone said that confession is good for the soul. It is good for many other things as well. The Bible is sure good on this aspect of confession. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9 KJV). The world can be very confusing if we are not willing to fess up and try straightening things out.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att.net. His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com.

Twenty residents boarded the pontoon boat for the 10 a.m. tour and a dozen took the noon tour which navigated the Rainbow and Withlacoochee Rivers. Captain Jon shared his knowledge of Floridas ecology and history through story and song. The tour offered education about the local area and its history, as well as the environment and wildlife along the beautiful waters of the crystal clear spring-fed Rainbow River and the dark, swamp-fed Withlacoochee River. Afterward, some of the group stayed for lunch at The Blue Gator. Many thanks go to Kathy Keables for all her hard work in planning and organizing this terrific trip. If you are interested in future trips, please keep checking the Activity Wall and the Travel Board in the Lifestyle Center, the Travel insert in The Communicator and our column which runs in The Citizen on alternate weeks.

Friday, May 24, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, May 24, 2013 www .smcitizen.com not others. This is social engineering, with Congress seeking to encourage some kinds of organizations while not forgoing more revenue than necessary. The IRS then writes rules to carry out the directions of Congress. Where possible, people will naturally strive to qualify for exemption by pushing the boundaries of the regulations. That incentive will always be strong because a nonprofit organization that is exempt from taxation will have more resources with which to pursue its mission. Since the language of statutes and regulations is inevitably vague, the IRS will have room to interpret when ruling on who qualifies and who doesnt qualify for exemption. The line between vigilance and harassment is not bright, and the potential for abuse is great. It should be apparent that this power, which is inherently arbitrary, ill suits a society that sees itself as free. Take the current controversy. The IRS says that to qualify for 501(c)(4) taxexempt status, a nonprofit organization must be operated exclusively to promote social welfare. To do that the organization must operate primarily to further the common good and general welfare of the people of the community (such as by bringing about civic betterment and social improvements). What exactly constitutes the common good and general welfare of the people of the community, or civic betterment and social improvements? The IRS will let you know. What does primarily mean and how does it relate to the seemingly contradictory exclusivity requirement? This is subject to a facts and circumstances test that is, the IRS will decide. Approved activities are generally regarded as educational, but how broadly or narrowly that term is interpreted is left to the IRS and, if challenged, to the courts. Lobbying for legislation germane to the organizations programs is a permissible means of attaining social welfare purposes. However, direct or indirect participation in political campaigns is not regarded as promotion of social welfare although an organization may engage in some political activities, so long as that is not its primary activity. However, any expenditure it makes for political activities may be subject to tax. As this demonstrates, once government undertakes to tax income, it acquires even more power through its authority to define income, taxable income, subsidiary terms, and the rules of exemption. There is no escape from arbitrariness and caprice. One might propose to remove the governments arbitrary power by ending tax exemption. But that would make the tax burden worse. And besides, politicians arent likely to agree, because they would be giving up the power to dispense favors that manipulation of todays tax code affords. Theres a better way to go thats demanded by liberty and justice. Since taxation is nothing less than the confiscation, under threat of force, of what belongs to productive individuals, it has no place in a free society. In other words, everyone should be exempt from income and other taxation. (Americans lived without income taxation for more than 125 years.) If something cant be accomplished through consent, contract, and cooperation without aggressive force we should ask whether it is worth doing. When the income tax was first proposed in America years ago, opponents always had the same word of warning: inquisitorial. How right they were.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org).

When Jane and I go grocery shopping we divide the list, take separate carts and meet near the checkout area. Recently I finished first. While waiting at the end of an aisle I saw a new brand of bottled ice tea. Its ingredients were purified water, organic cane sugar, fair trade organic tea leaves and natural favor. The companys name was Honest. Really, it was Honest tea. That got me thinking about todays Pun Alley.Taking it with youA billionaire died, leaving his fortune to his only living friends, a doctor, a CEO, and a lawyer. Being very eccentric, his will stipulated that each one must place their third of the money in his coffin before he is put in his final resting place. After the funeral the three friends talked about the eccentric. The doctor said, I have to be honest, I didnt place all the money into his coffin, I kept five million. Then the CEO stated, Well, I have to admit that I too kept some of the cash, 10 million to be exact. The Lawyer glared at the two and said, I am ashamed of you two, I wrote a check for the full amount.Nine times honestWhen a man applied for a job in a department store he could only produce one reference that, he thought, would vouch for him. A clerk contacted the reference and asked him if the applicant was honest. Honest? the reference said. Why, his honestys been proven again and again. To my certain knowledge hes been arrested nine times for stealing and every time he was acquitted.To the pointAfter an argument the husband was throwing knives at his wifes picture while she was out. All were missing the target. When he received a call from her, she asked, What are you doing? His honest reply was, Missing you.Truths?Be on the level and you wont go downhill. Tom: Smiths a cheat, and Im not gonna play golf with him again. Andy: Why not, something happen? Tom: Well, how could he find his lost ball a yard from the green when all the time it was in my pocket? Sign in a butcher shop: Honest scales. No two weighs about it. Honesty has one great advantage. You never have to remember anything. Wife: The cleaning woman must have stolen two of our new towels. Husband: Well, some people are like that. Which towels were they? Wife: Oh, you know. The ones we brought back from the hotel in Des Moines. Have you ever heard of an honest cheetah? An honest politician is any public servant wholl stay bought when you buy him. A prize was first awarded for honesty in Europe. If you were and still are completely honest in your product advertisements, you are eligible to win the No-Bull Award. Honesty is the best policy because it has so little competition. A window sign: Tax Returns Prepared Honest Mistakes Are Our Specialty.Back in the old daysI am going away for a few days, Bridget, said the lady of the house to her servant girl, and I am going to leave with you all my keys, those to my closets as well as those to my chests and jewel boxes. I know that they will be safe with you, but, of course, I expect you not to touch them. When the mistress returned, the girl said to her, Madam, Im going to leave you. Why, Bridget? Because you dont trust me. How can you say that, when I left you with all my keys? That you did, but not one of them fits. WisdomThe boss explained the facts of business life to a new employee. If you want to succeed in business, you need two things honesty and smarts. Whats honesty? The truth. Keep your word when youve given it. What are smarts? Never give your word! Game calledAt long last the boss felt compelled to call Fitch into his office. It has not escaped my attention, he pointed out, that every time theres a big home game, you have to take your aunt to the doctor. You know youre right, sir, exclaimed Fitch. I hadnt realized. You dont suppose shes faking it, do you? Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

erations who have never experienced adversity seem to think there is something drastically wrong with America. Humans who have life too easy, life without an iota of strife or struggle, have a perverted view of what constitutes life. Life has never been a free ride, or picnic for any generation. A wake up call is needed for Boomer Boobs and their progeny People with a distorted view of life, need a little strife in order to appreciate what they have. As we can observe, getting things too easily produces marshmallows, humans with a distorted perspective on life. Boo, hoo, hoo, we want stuff without effort. Rome did itself in. Today we have a few more spoons in the soup vying for the big prize, America. We have homegrown progressives/communists, Islamists, globalists; environmentalists all want the big prize. None of these are acceptable options. America is damaged, it needs a little housecleaning, and repair. It is still the best game on this planet. Let us get on with our fixer upper government, and make it work. America is worth saving, just as it is. Clean out the bugs. Repeal Federal Reserve Act of 1913, Get out of U.N. Dump Obamacare. (it is going to kill us, literally. Especially old folks). No lobbying. No federal education department. IRS revamped, or replaced, fix Wall Street, Fix the EPA, elect Ben Carson, and Rand Paul in 2016. D.I. Larson, OcalaAs goes MaineMaine became the 13th state to seek a constitutional amendment to reverse a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that allows unrestricted campaign spending by corporations and wealthy individuals. Other states calling on Congress for a constitutional amendment are Vermont, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, Rhode Island and West Virginia. About time this Supreme Court ruling was reversed! Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunBenghazi attackWhy did the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attack happen in the first place? After the horrific 9/11/01 attack, we went 10 years without being attacked on 9/11, even after Seal Team 6 killed bin Laden in May of 2011 and Sept. 11, 2011 was the tenth anniversary. Then in May 2012, President Obama toured the country with speeches spiking the football on the bin Laden killing. He also bragged that he had Al Qaeda on the run, that he had put it on life support. This gave Al Qaeda great motive to show that they were still dangerous and effective. Survivors of and witnesses to the Benghazi attack said the terrorists were chanting We are Usama! Nuff said. Al Shumard Pine RunFriday, May 24, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, May 24, 2013 www .smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenThe Internal Revenue Service has been caught engaging in political profiling while processing applications for tax-exempt status. In this case it was against organizations with tea-party or patriot in their names and other right-wing groups. Next time it could be libertarian or left-wing antiwar and pro-civil-liberties groups. No dissenter can ever rest assured he is safe from the arbitrary power of the IRS. Nothing will have been learned from this scandal if all that happens is the firing of some IRS administrators and the issuance of new guidelines on 501(c)(4) applications. That is not nearly enough. Obviously, tax exemptions exist only because individuals and some organizations are subject to income and other forms of taxation. Congress levies a tax on incomes, then in its wisdom chooses to exempt certain activities but Abolish the IRS and the income tax with it PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE10 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comA Memorial Day Service, bowling activities, and an opportunity to save a life constitute this weeks OTOW Happenings.Lions ClubThe OTOW Lions Club will honor our nations fallen veterans on Memorial Day, May 27.

OTOW Lions planning for Memorial Day service SHANGHAI GIRLS By Lisa See In 1937, exciting Shanghai was considered the Paris of the East. In that year young, nubile sisters Pearl and May were calendar girls promoting, in their gorgeous Westernized gowns, a new China free of arranged marriages and antiquated customs. Life for them was good. Father was prosperous; there were servants and plenty of spending money. The irony was that, unbeknownst to the girls, it was all faade and about to come crashing down at the same time the Japanese were invading their homeland. Their father was deeply in debt to gangsters and could save the familys lives only by selling his daughters into arranged marriages. It was their burden to serve as sacrificial lambs. The wonderment of this beautiful book is their indomitable spirit in shouldering responsibility for their fathers sins even though it brings them a life of incredible want and ugliness. In a low-rent, grimy Los Angeles apartment Pearl scrubs the revolting bathroom mess her tyrannical father-in-law leaves every day and toils in the tiny kitchen while May picks up menial jobs in China City. Pearls husband Sam is distant, aloof, and Mays teenage husband Vern is childish and both mentally and physically challenged. Can anything positive arise out of such grim reality? The answer is yes and its a baby girl named Joy that does brighten their dreary Chinese father sells his daughters lives. Although the sisters cling to each other for support, all between them does not run smoothly. There is jealousy, misunderstanding, and even betrayal. But the need to forgive is best expressed by Pearl: For every awful thing thats been said and done, she is my sister. Parents die, daughters grow up and marry out, but sisters are for life. She is the only person left in the world who shares my memories of our childhood, our parents, our Shanghai, our struggles, our sorrows, and yes, even our moments of happiness and triumph. NOTE: Because the conclusion of Shanghai Girls is a cliffhanger, readers may wish to pick up the sequelDreams of Joy.

Friday, May 24, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 24, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Lots of possibilities begin to open up by midweek. Some seem more appealing than others. But wait for more facts to emerge later on before you consider which to choose. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Bravo to the determined Bovine. While others might give up, you continue to search for answers. Expect your Taurean tenacity to begin paying off by weeks end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might want to consider stepping back from the task at hand for a while. This could help you get a perspective on what youve done and what needs to be done. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your keen Cancerian insight should help you determine whether a new offer is solid or just more fluff n stuff. The clues are all there waiting for you to find them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Being ignored is difficult for any proud Leo or Leona. But pushing yourself back into the spotlight might be unwise. Instead, let things work out at their own pace. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Trying to uncover a colleagues secret under the pretext of showing concern is ill-advised. Control your curiosity to avoid raising resentment in the workplace. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Expect to hear good news about a loved one. Also, be prepared for some changes in several family relationships that could develop from this lucky turn of events. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Some surprises are expected to accompany a number of changes that will continue through part of next week. At least one could involve a romantic situation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might be upset by some of your critics. But most of your associates continue to have faith in your ability to get the job done, and done well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A workplace goal that suddenly seems out of reach is no problem for the sure-footed Goat, who moves steadily forward despite any obstacles placed in the way. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Uncertainty about who is right might keep you from making a clear-cut decision. Wait until you know more about what youre being asked to decide. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Be careful to keep your emotions in check when dealing with a demanding personal situation. You need to set an example of strength for others to follow. BORN THIS WEEK: You have an extraordinary ability to rally people to do their best. You would be a treasure as a teacher. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. Our government started bending the truth when it was still a collection of colonies. History teaches that the primary cause of the American Revolution was taxation without representation. There were other issues. The Boston tea party was an uprising against a tax on ship cargo, but its little known that some of the tea-partiers were among the smugglers who supplied 90 percent of the tea being consumed at the time. The British East India Company, which had a tea monopoly, did not appreciate the competition. The colonies had no representatives in the British parliament, and they had to suffer autocratic governors, some of whom were corrupt. Another reason for wanting independence was the colonists unspoken desires to control importation of slaves, and to subjugate and impress native Indians. Explanations of many other events have come under suspicion. In January 1898, our battleship USS Maine entered Havana harbor to protect American business interests during a Cuban revolt against the Spanish government. A few days later the Maine sank when its gunpowder magazines exploded, killing most of the crew. Washington blamed a Spanish mine, and a few months later the U.S. was at war with Spain. The captain of the Maine insisted the sinking was caused by a coal bin explosion. After the war the Maine was raised, and the captains report was confirmed. Similar fact-bending was President Lyndon Johnsons insistence that a torpedo attack in the Gulf of Tonkin justified escalating the Vietnam War. Mr. Johnson relied on a report from an inexperienced sonar operator that there were torpedoes, which was doubtful. The president heard what he wanted to hear, a common audiology malfunction at the White House. The current conflict between the White House and Congress over killings of four Americans in the attack at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, is similar to President Johnsons use of selective information. The Obama White House decided Benghazi would play better as a spontaneous uproar over an anti-Islam movie than an organized terrorist attack at least until after the presidential election. So the nation was told what the White House wanted to hear. More of the same is news that the IRS was over diligent in examining non-profit-status applications by Tea Party organizations. President Obama relies on the Sgt. Schultz defense (from TVs Hogans Heroes): I knew nothing! IRS management claims to have been similarly uninformed. They also heard only what they wanted to hear. In the third recent matter with an odor of truth bending, the Justice Department at first chose to say nothing about tapping phone lines of the Associated Press. As disclosure blossomed, Justice said the matter is a criminal investigation about a leak of classified information. Of course the White House knew nothing about the matter, except what it heard in news reports. Handling of the Benghazi, IRS, and AP embarrassments by the White House confirm Mary Matalins and James Carvilles book title Alls Fair In Love, War, and Running for President, particularly when the elected president never stops campaigning. Responses from Congress are expectable blow-back to persistent political pretzel baking at the White House. As George Orwell said In our age all issues are political and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia. This time of year is always a little bit rough for me. Between local Memorial Day celebrations, the upcoming anniversary of D-Day and TV depictions of soldiers, it brings back some memories of relatives. There was one who never made it home. He was my Uncle Joe and my Godfather, and he was killed in Normandy seven months after I was born. Somewhere I have a picture of him holding me, I think it was on a park bench, and Ive done research and found a picture of his grave in France. Hes listed as Sgt. Joseph Day of Illinois. I have a lot more active memories of my father, who did come home from World War II. He died in 2004 here in Ocala, and he and my mother are buried in the National Cemetery in Bushnell. His strong military background carried over into his civilian life, where he was active in a group called Catholic War Veterans in Bergenfield, New Jersey, where I was raised. I remember him being the guest speaker at the Memorial Day services in front of the Borough Hall, and I recall his talk on teaching patriotism to young people, telling parents to take their children to the various historical sites within driving distance of where I lived, places such as Valley Forge, West Point, and so forth. I recall being an altar boy at church that night for a weekly Novena, and the priest, a Father Genslinger, asked me if my dad had taken me to all those places he mentioned. I was proud to be able to say, Yes, he did. There was another one who came home, my Uncle Ed. He lost an eye in the war, but came back to run a successful restaurant near the financial district in downtown New York. It was called Neils Luncheonette, and was packed at lunchtime every business day. It was a long, thin building with a counter, and the hamburgers? Well, they were made the way hamburgers should be made in a restaurant, not like the fast food places we see today. Listening to the two of them made me appreciate the military members and what they went through during World War II. I also remember the announcement of the start of the Korea War, and my grandmother crying in the kitchen, worrying that both men would have to go back into the Army. Neither one did. All those memories come drifting back the next couple of weeks as we go to various ceremonies and events. The big one in the county will be at Veterans Park next Monday at 10 a.m. This is always a touching event, but its usually brutally hot, and this day will probably be the same. After that, theres a ceremony at Highland Memorial Park, which is always decorated red, white and blue. A lot of people attend both ceremonies, with one following on the heels of the others. Next Monday, make sure you take time to remember those who sacrificed their lives in war for us. That includes all wars, including those who died fighting in Asia recently. Memorial Day is more than barbecues and picnics. Its a day to honor and remember.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

So here we are with another week, another tragedy to discuss. This time it was in Moore, Oklahoma, where a powerful tornado flattened a mile-wide path through the town. Moore is just outside Oklahoma City, and is the home of country singer Toby Keith, who is on the ground helping, and of New York Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner, who was pulled out of batting practice the afternoon of the storm and told by team officials to take time to contact his family. Relatives of both men are safe. Probably the biggest talking point has been safe rooms and storm cellars, particularly where it involves the two elementary schools in the path. An older school was damaged and a number of children injured or killed. Students did what many of us were taught, to go into the hall away from windows, but many then ended up in bathrooms huddled together. One of the more touching stories was that of a teacher who was in a bathroom stall covering four little boys. She said one of the boys asked if they were going to die, and she told him she would protect him, which she did. Then she added that she did something as a teacher youre probably not supposed to do I prayed out loud. Television networks and other journalists descended upon the area, wringing their hands and discussing how terrible it was while promoting special shows that undoubtedly would help ratings. The local TV reporters who we heard initially got emotional, because they were talking about their own friends and relatives. Some may not consider that professional, but it was real, compelling television. The newer school had a safe area built into the school, and students reportedly escaped harm. In the area, few homes have basements because the soil makes them susceptible to flooding. But after two other tornadoes in the past 15 years, many people built storm shelters in their back yards and were able to make use of them for themselves and neighbors. Were heading into hurricane season here in Florida, but as many have pointed out, at least with a hurricane you have many days notice that its coming. Not so about tornadoes, which can pop up anytime theres a severe weather threat. But with the hurricane season due, its time to remember that everyone can be a victim of severe weather. Make sure youre prepared. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Have they forgotten our Supreme Court voted to uphold A.H.C. Why have a Supreme Court at all, if the laws they pass are ignored by our elected Congressmen? This is the same Republican party whose campaign slogan was Jobs for the American People. All they seem to want to do is investigate, investigate, investigate. In the past 4 1/2 years Republicans have opposed every jobs bill proposed by the president and the Democratic Party. Wake up voters, before its too late.

More than 100 people turned out to the Chabad Jewish Center of Marion County and The Villages in honor of Mendy Hechts 3rd birthday and hair cutting celebration. The guests, following tradition, took turns snipping Mendys long blond wavy hair. In addition to having shorter hair, Mendy will begin wearing the yarmulke, traditional skullcap or head covering, and a tzitzit, a traditional garment with four tassels. Chabad Centers best attended haircut The parents each cut a strand of their first sons hair the biblically-mandated side-locks called the peyot left intact. This is a personal family celebration, but because of the involvement we have with the community, a personal celebration includes everyone, said his father, Rabbi Yossi Hecht, who co-directs the Chabad Center with his wife, Chanie. It marks the start of his formal introduction to Jewish education. It is at this time that a Jewish boy begins to perform mitzvahs (biblical commandments), learn prayers, and develop a love towards God, the torah and his Jewish heritage. In attendance was the Mayor of Ocala Kent Guinn and radio hosts Larry and Robin of WOCA. Guests were invited to a hot buffet lunch as they celebrated the toddlers debut into Judaism.

The Southwest Florida Water Management District is observing May 19-25 as Water Reuse Week. Governor Rick Scott proclaimed Florida Water Reuse Week to highlight the importance of water reuse to the sustainability of Floridas water supply and overall ecosystem. Water reuse is essential to ensuring safe, clean and sustainable water resources. As part of the districts efforts to highlight water reuse awareness throughout our 16-county coverage area, here are five facts about how we are working together to protect Floridas water supply: The district has partnered with Tampa Bay Water to create 110 million gallons per day of new alternative water supplies in the Tampa Bay area. Our district has the lowest per capita usage in the state, with our consumers using 98 gallons per person, per day in the Tampa Bay area. In Florida, the statewide average is 133 gallons per person, per day. Ten percent of all water we use is reclaimed water, which offsets 160 million gallons per day of groundwater throughout the district. District-wide, we have funded enough reclaimed water projects for pipes reaching from Tampa to Washington, D.C. (913 miles). Since 1992, the district has funded indoor and outdoor water conservation projects ranging from toilet rebate/replacements to landscape and irrigation evaluations, conserving over 14.5 million gallons per day of potable water. Thats up to $217 million that didnt need to be spent on creating new alternative water supply.
