BRIEFS Palm Cay Palm Tees seek lady golfersThe Palm Tees is the name of our Senior Ladies nine-hole golf league in Palm Cay. We play every Thursday morning. Our summer tee time is 7:15 a.m. We play from mid-May, until mid-September. With the early tee time we are all done before it gets too hot, and then some of us go to breakfast. From mid-September until the end of April we tee off at 9 a.m. and then go out to lunch. We enjoy golf and have a fun time playing at it. Why not come out and play with us? If you are a senior lady and live in the area of Southwest State Raod 200, and would enjoy a quick morning round of golf, why not call for more information? We have members from Palm Cay, Oak Run, Spruce Creek Preserve, Marion Landing and Top of the World. For more information call Joyce Edgerton at 352-237-3774.

This Ocala Outdoor Sculpture Competition PLEASESEECONTEST PAGE3 BY JIM CLARK Editor A crowd dominated by a large number of veterans gathered Sunday afternoon at the Appleton Museums theater to watch a movie about the Honor Flight program. Ocalas final Honor Flight was last week, during which a number of World War II veterans traveled to Washington, D.C., for a day of visiting the memorials dedicated to them and their comrades. It was a day for memories for the vets, most of whom are in their 80s and 90s. The ceremony and accompanying movie on Sunday brought back some of those memories. The movie tells the story of four men from the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area who made the trip from there, and also describes how that area organized the flights. It was a touching one hour, 20-minute show which was narrated in part by the men themselves. It described their trip and showed highlights of their visit to D.C. Before the showing of the movie, there was a short program. Mary Ellen Poe, CEO of Hospice of Marion County, welcomed the visitors who nearly filled the facility. Students Loyd Adams IV and Kinley Nichols led the Pledge of Allegiance. Trey Adams, Honor Flight coordinator/hub director, and community relations director for Emeritus East, gave the introduction. Robin and the Giant of WOCA played and led the National Anthem, and also sang a song about the Honor Flight. A Veterans Pinning Ceremony was held to honor Jim Hilty Sr., financial adviser, Edward Jones Investments. Adams then introduced the film, and the crowd settled back to watch. The film can be purchased from Amazon.com Honor Flight movie gets local screening PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKAbove, left, Loyd Adams IV and Kinley Nichols leave the stage after leading the Pledge of Allegiance.

Film chronicles efforts of volunteers to build program from scratch in Midwest Special to the Citizen On Sunday, May 12, Mothers Day, Andrea Flannery was relaxing with a newspaper when an article on Senior Services caught her eye. This article was asking for help to close a budgetary gap which would impact Meals on Wheels, respite care givers, and the daily communal dining program. Sarah Stroh, director of Marion Senior Services, said that if a fraction of our county each gave a single dollar, the gap would be bridged. The gap was caused by the federal governments sequester. That article galvanized Andrea, a warm-hearted, caring former nurse, into action. She called the article to the attention of her friends who responded swiftly. Individuals, small social groups, and organized clubs within On Top of the World banded together. On Monday, May 13, the mens PHOTO BY JIM CLARKSarah Stroh, left, of Marion Senior Services, receives $660 from Andrea Flannery of On Top of the World. Looking on in back is Nancy Grabowski. golfing groups were told the story by Archie Pollard and Bill Flannery. The men agreed to chip in a few dollars each day. By the end of the week, they had collected $222.

Each organization was moved by the plight of our less-fortunate contemporaries and generously agreed to donate a check from each treasury. Andrea continued to spread the word, with the assistance of Nancy Grabowski. Bunco players and Mah Jongg players agreed to pitch in. Individuals contributed. Like a snowball rolling downhill, the collection began to grow and grow. There were a few, admittedly, who thought these efforts wouldnt make a difference. They were proved wrong when the final tally was complete, this small circle of friends raised $660, which was be presented on Thursday, May 23. Stroh accepted the donation in the multi-purpose room at the Senior Services building, and told the people attending that some cuts still might have to be made. The story doesnt end here. More help is needed. Contributions can be mailed directly to: Marion Senior Services, 1101 SW 20th Court, Ocala FL 34471. You can also call Nancy Grabowski at 873-4315 for more information. Editors Note: Senior Services has announced that it will close for meals two days in June to save funds.

Let your pantry serve as your starting point for creating memorable meals the family will love.Proper Pantry PracticesBefore letting those creative culinary juices flow, take inventory of your pantry. If you find items that are too old, that have never been touched, or that you hardly ever use get rid of them. Look closely at the ingredient list to decide which items to keep. Get rid of items filled with corn syrup and artificial sweeteners and colors. Foods with fewer ingredients and pronounce able words tend to be more natural or whole. Made from four ingredients, Kikkomans Soy Sauce is brewed naturally, using a traditional process that goes back hundreds of years. Other keepers include honey, canned beans, whole grain pastas or rice, raw nuts and olive oil. Once your pantry is in order, you can incorporate these healthy staples into meals using the freshest vegetables, poultry, fish and beef.

Friday, May 31, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, May 31, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) An apparent act of injustice might turn out to be either an error in judgment or just plain stupidity. So calm down and cool off, and let the explanations roll out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its upsetting when someone you trusted might have failed you. But with new opportunities ahead, youll soon be too busy to feel even a wee bit sorry for yourself. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A sense of uncertainty could be a good reason to change your position on an important matter. Someone close might try to talk you out of it, but its your decision to make. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Being too zealous in pursuing your goal could create some resistance. Try to be more mindful of what you ask people to do, and theyll be more likely to do it. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Things change as you go from being ignored to being Lionized once again. This is a good time to reintroduce those previously rejected ideas to a more receptive audience. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Someone new in your life creates both anticipation as well as anxiety. Avoid the potential for misunderstandings by watching what you say and how you say it. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Watch your budget so that you dont overspend now and have less to invest when the time is right later on. Arrange to share your weekend with someone special. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) The temptation to involve yourself in a friends or family members personal problems is laudable. But get the facts before you make a firm commitment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might be upset by some of your critics. But most of your associates continue to keep the faith in your ability to get the job done, and done well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Youve reached an important point in your ongoing pursuit of your goals. You might now want to consider letting someone you trust join you on your journey. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youve been going through a spate of uncertainty involving people you care for. But it might be time to take a stand on a position you feel sure you can defend. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Treading water keeps you busy, but it wont get you where you need to go. Time to stop making excuses and to start moving ahead toward your goals. BORN THIS WEEK: You see life as both creative and pragmatic. You would not only be a fine artist, but also a successful one. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. THE DRY GRASS OF AUGUST By Anna Jean Mayhew Jubie Watts, the precocious 13-year-old narrator of The Dry Grass of August comes from a privileged white Southerners. When her family leaves their home in Charlotte, North Carolina with their black maid Mary Luther on a vacation throughout the South her eyes are opened to the reality of 1950s racism. Traveling by car their housekeeper endures hardship and humiliation when motels and restaurants refuse to admit her and when she is allowed to use outhouses, but not public bathrooms. The trip is an eye-opener in more than one way because Jubie soon realizes that her dysfunctional family is beginning to unravel and that its held together only by the tenacity of their loyal servant Mary. At relatives homes Mary cooks, cleans and cares for the four Watts children without complaint. That she is an exceptional woman is apparent to Jubie, the only one in her family to see the black womans value. In Andalusia, Alabama the family passes a grill with colored people in the doorway before stopping at a Whites Only restaurant. Mary announces that she will walk back to the grill. Jubie watches her prepare: Mary got her flowered bag from the trunk and took out a rose knit Id never seen before. In quick strokes she put on glossy lipstick, and then reached into her bag for red earrings and a matching necklace. With her handbag dangling from her fingertips she started down the street. Here is a book that has it alla compelling story that draws you in from the first page, a broad examination of family dynamics and racial conflict set against a backdrop of historical events. The social extremes of human behavior create unsettling intensity throughout that leads to a sad but somewhat predictable ending. More than a coming-of-age tale or a look at civil rights issues of the s, Mayhews debut novel is a simple but engrossing story about people who seem all too real and who make us care about them. Highly recommended.

T hroughout life, reading is not just fundamental. Its critical. Proficient readers can master just about anything. Sadly, children without words are seriously handicapped and may carry that burden for a lifetime, unless they are introduced to the power of reading. Recently released results of the FCAT third-grade reading scores for Marion County were about the same as last year. Fifty-one percent of Marion third graders scored as proficient readers. An encouraging column adjacent to the third-grade report was an article about the love-ofreading recognition ceremony for fifth graders at Greenway Elementary School. The headline was: Schools try to avoid students taking vacation from reading. Studies indicate that students who dont read during vacation may fall as much as three months behind in spelling and Friday, May 31, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISE Call 854-3986 ADVERTISING www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, May 31, 2013 This is a yearly column, updated with latest information. T his is a big month for many young people in Marion County, as they leave high school and move on to the next phase of their lives. Graduation ceremonies are scheduled for local high schools, a landmark day for a few hundred young adults who are ready to venture out into the world. This graduating class has been through a little more than many of us. These young people were firstgraders on Sept. 11, 2001, when two planes smashed into the World Trade Center in New York, one hit the Pentagon and another crashed in Pennsylvania, changing the face of America forever. They are venturing into an uncertain world, one filled with fear of terrorism, one filled with eroding freedoms in the name of security. Those of us who have lived through many years of strife and conflict and many years of prosperity and peace, can give some words of advice to the young graduates. Whether they pay attention is up to them, and whether they agree is also up to them. But at least its a point of view that they can use to steer them in whatever direction they want to go. With just a few changes from the previous years columns, here we go: 1. If you have a chance to continue your education, by all means do so. In this era, it is almost impossible to advance yourself in the job market without some sort of post-secondary education. It can be college, junior college, trade school or specialized classes, but make sure you learn as much as you can. Youve made it through one important period youve got your high school diploma. Now look to see what else you can do to learn. Your brains are still relatively young you have a better capacity to learn than many of us old dogs, who find it hard to learn new tricks. 2. If you go to college, learn the difference between opinion and fact from your professors. The good ones will make it clear for you but there are some who will ram their thoughts down your throat, without making it clear that its what they think, not what the world accepts as truth. 3. If you havent already, develop a good work ethic. When it comes to studying and school assignments, the days of someone looking over your shoulder to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to are over. Youre on your own. Your education, or your job, are what you make it. Take a look at employment ads in almost every major field. Theyll say things like self-starter or must work well without supervision. Managers in the business world dont want to have to watch every step that you do. Learn to work by yourself with maximum effort. Remember, the world doesnt owe you a living you have to go out and make your own mark. 4. Choose your friends wisely. Hang around with people who have good goals, who want to make a decent mark in this world. There was a great commercial on TV (I cant remember what product it was for) where one guy in a group of wild young people gets a suit-and-tie job, so the others always want him to buy dinner, because they arent doing a thing. You will undoubtedly encounter some of these people steer clear and be your own person. Some years later, these will be the folks who will come to you begging for a job. 5. Stay active. There will come a time in your life when you cant exercise like you used to, but that day isnt here yet for most of you. Im afraid that we are producing a generation of computer-chair potatoes (as opposed to couch potatoes), those who do nothing but sit in front of a computer screen or play with a phone or tablet for all their free time. Get out and do something. You can walk, you can run, you can play a sport, you can swim just do something. Its good for your mind and your body. 6. Along that same line, learn how to talk to people, face to face. There is entirely too much Facebook, Tweeting, and other social networking going on, but sometimes young people have to talk to someone in person and they dont know what to say, or how to behave. Get off the phone and the computer and speak to people. Someday when youre interviewing for a job, it wont be on Facebook. But someday during that same job interview, your potential boss is going to ask permission to look at your Facebook postings, and all that cute little stuff and foul language that some of you might use will come back to haunt you. 7. Volunteer in the community. There are all sorts of things that need doing. Some involve some physical work, others involve using your brains to help people. Give something back to the community show that you care. You never know someday you may be one of the people who needs help, and maybe there will be folks around who will recall what you did for others, and youll get some help in return. And dont do it for the glory and the recognition. The best volunteers are those who work behind the scenes, who get nothing out of it but personal satisfaction. 8. Finally, keep the faith, and not just religious faith. If you are a religious person, you will be tested. Most of those who are religious find great solace in that faith, so dont let yourself get tempted away from it. But there is another kind of faith, faith in your fellow human beings, faith in the country. Be aware of the times you live in, for sure, but realize there are so many places in the world that are worse off than we are. While we live in the fear that there could be another attack on us somewhere in the U.S., there are people who live with the very real fear of being blown up every day. While we have medical care available to us when we get sick, there are people who succumb to the least little illness because their bodies cant fight diseases, or they have no access to things as simple as an aspirin. As you depart from high school, thank your teachers, your counselors, your school employees. They surely dont get rich doing what they do, but almost all of them love their profession. Someday you will realize how good the days of high school were. But for now, youve reached your goal of getting your diploma, which is a job well done. Congratulations!

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or T he common lament among the ranks of our nations disabled veterans filing for service-connected disability compensation from the VA is, Delay, deny, wait till I die. As a candidate for the presidency, President Obama pledged to revamp the Veterans Affairs (VA) claims process. When General Eric Shinseki, a former Army Chief of Staff and highly respected combat wounded veteran, was appointed as the VA Secretary in 2009, he promised to end the claims backlog in two years. The promises of President Obama and Secretary Shinseki raised the hopes of veterans that the claims backlog would finally be eliminated. Instead, the backlog has gotten intolerably worse. Internal VA documents obtained by the Center for Investigative Reporting reveal the agencys claims process has virtually collapsed. The number of claimants waiting more than a year for their benefits has exploded from 11,000 in 2009 to 245,000 in December 2012 an increase of more than 2,000 percent. Particularly troubling is that the number of veterans dying before their claims were approved has skyrocketed. Between 2009 and 2012, the number of deceased veterans receiving approval too late for the compensation to help them while they were alive jumped from 6,400 to 19,500. Three factors in particular have contributed to the VAs inability to fulfill the promises of President Obama and Secretary Shinseki. Foremost is the VAs antiquated processing system. After spending more than half a billion dollars on a new computer system the past four years, 97 percent of all claims inexplicably remain on paper. The paper-laden claims process is further compounded by a points system that gives performance bonuses to workers for sending letters to veterans but not for spending extra time reading a claims file. Despite the VA publicly reporting it has hired 3,300 additional personnel since 2010, staffing at the VAs 58 regional offices only increased by fewer than 300 people due to turnover and the loss of more than 2,000 workers temporarily paid through stimulus funds. Lastly, with claims processors overwhelmed by an ever-burdensome workload, processing errors have reached a crisis state and a sense of helpless resignation has made the disability compensation claims of veterans secondary to struggling through another workday. Second only to the Department of Defense in size, the VA is saddled by a cumbersome bureaucracy, indurate procedures and inadequate staffing. As such, while the federal government has deemed some private corporations too big to fail, the VAs intolerable claims record argues it may be too big to be fixed. If the VA claims process is ever going to be fixed, it must be revamped and sufficiently resourced. Furthermore, the VA leadership, from the Secretary on down, must be held strictly accountable for ending this intolerable situation once and for all. Our nations disabled veterans merit more than hollow promises. Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

It has now become part of my get-out-ofboring-situations arsenal. I was thinking about this the other day another good excuse popped into my head. Somebody invited me to come and play softball. At the time, they caught me off guard and I was trying to wiggle out of such an invitation. Then it dawned on me. I am sorry, I would like to but my health insurance does not cover that kind of activity. Whether my health insurance would cover that, I have no idea, but neither does anybody else, only my doctor knows for sure. While I was pondering this, I was reminded of a word from the Proverbs. Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain (Proverbs 25:14 KJV). Whoever boasts to others about their physical prowess is only fooling himself. The Rev. James L.

comprehension. Now theres the rub. Interest and incentive need to be generated within the home. My wifes parents and mine finished schooling at eighth grade. Her parents grew up in farm and factory country; mine in a big city. With optimism, they sent us to public schools during the worst years of the great depression and the hard times of World War II. Our parents read the daily papers, and challenged themselves with word puzzles. They also read paperback novels and hard cover books from their modest public libraries. Our reading habits were pre-K stimulated by parental powers of example. There are some little-known secrets in early reading proficiency. While we are all prisoners of the genes we inherited, there is evidence that intelligence is not necessarily limited by our birth certificates. Research indicates that West Indian African-Americans, Asian-Americans, and Jewish Americans tend to get more out of U.S. education than other ethnic groups because of student diligence and cultural encouragement within their families. As we were writing this article, we read a newspaper report of encouraging comments to the Public Policy Institute of Marion County by David Lawrence, former publisher of the Miami Herald and education activist. His concern is that so many children in Marion County are in poor shape as to their reading proficiency. Mr. Lawrences bulls-eye suggestion is that improving the quality of parenting and childrens environment may be more important than focusing on improvements in teaching quality. President Obama, the state of Florida, advocacy groups, and some education scholars are committed to universal pre-kindergarten education to help all children attain reading proficiency. Sounds like a right thing to do. However, were skeptical about another federal education initiative. The No Child Left Behind Program, intended to close the gaps between racial and ethnic groups, was unsuccessful. After 10 years and billions of dollars, that federal flagship program for disadvantaged students failed many children who were behind when the program was initiated in 2001. Our reservation is that universal preK could develop into another government program which may excuse rather than encourage family commitments to bettering childrens academic growth. In education matters, government is too often a creator of expensive unintended consequences.

West Marion Moose Lodge activities BY JEAN DIPIERO Special to the Citizen On Sunday, May 26, the Indigo East community held its Memorial Day Pot Luck dinner. There was a great turnout. Before the dinner bell rang, Fred Masone told about the history of Memorial Day and asked for a moment of silence for our fallen service men and women. There was a delectable buffet to choose from. The neighbors really went all out. The menu included pulled pork, chicken parmigiana, eggplant parmigiana, fried chicken, meatballs, sausage with peppers, beef stew, different types of pasta salads, potato salad, several varieties of casseroles, bean salad, deviled eggs and much more. The desserts were awesome too. There were different pies, cakes and cupcakes. Everything was delicious. The tables were decorated with red/white/ blue tablecloths along with red/white/blue flowers as the centerpiece on each table. There was a 50/50 raffle as well. Special thanks to the following people who planned and organized this event: Mary Lou, Fred and Freddy Jr. Masone, Harold and Cathy Brouillard, Marcia Connolly, Cookie and Gordon Daniels, Mary Pat Giffin, Prudence Goodman, Sarah Logue, Dick and Paula Lord and Mary Walters.

PHOTOS BY FRANK DIPIERO O n this day in 1879 the first electric railway opened at the Berlin Trades Exposition and in 1891 work on trans-Siberian railway began. Here in the United States railroad expansion occurred as the West was opened. Railroad agents told the Navajo, The coming of the Iron Horse will bring great prosperity to the Redman. But the Indians had reservations. The western railroads were fairly primitive. Being in business to make money, the railroad operators tried to increase revenue on each trip by carrying more people wanting to move to the West. They restricted passengers to be under a certain weight, in order to fit three people in a seat instead of only two. Not only was this extremely uncomfortable for the travelers, but it became obvious to those wishing to relocate that if this policy continued there would be no West for the reary. Todays world is not much different. The Big Apple A Long Island railroad train was moving along at its usual five-mile-an-hour clip when it stopped suddenly. A passenger asked the conductor, Why are we stopped? The conductor said, Theres a big turtle on the track. The passenger said, We stopped for a turtle ten minutes ago. The conductor said, I know, but we caught up with it again! Middle U.S.The train was about to pull out of the station. A young man managed to reach the train, throw his briefcase onto the cars steps, and climb aboard, gasping for air. Looking at him, another rider said, Young man, you should be in better shape. At your age, I could catch the train by a gnats whisker and still be fresh. Look at you, panting away. The young man took a deep breath and said, Pop, I missed this train at the last station. One lump or two?Poland still has a number of steam locomotives. One of them was running low on coal at night. The engineer said to his fireman, Were coming to a town, lets stop and send the porter out to get more coal. Can you see the name of the town on the depot sign? The fireman replied, It appears to be Danzig in the dark. The engineer shouted, Buy coal, Porter!Crime tracksDuring the war a soldier had been lashed to the train tracks and run over. The police quickly investigated the incident. At the ensuing press conference the police chief was asked if this were part of a foreign plot. No, said the chief, We believe there was a locomotive. Short linesAmtrak is very precise. If you call up and ask what time the noon train gets to California, the agent will tell you, Eight p.m.-give or take a few days. A railroad engineer must be sure not to lose his train of thought, or he might go down the wrong track. A fired newspaper editor took an express train out of town. Traveling by train is safer than flying. You dont have to worry about the conductor sitting on the engineers lap. The railroad brakeman hid his whiskey in the Cabooze. The boy who did a project on trains had to keep track of everything. The trainman who stepped on a live 3rd rail was a conductor. The railway had a safety problem, but tried to cover its tracks. You can be on the right track and still get hit by a train. One day the kleptomaniac decided to take the five o-clock train. But the authorities made him give it back. A train load of paint derailed. Nearby businesses were put in the red. A man said to the ticket agent, Id better take the Amtrak to Cleveland. The ticket agent said, I wish you would. Were sick of it here! Sleeper A man and a woman who had never met were accidentally put in the same sleeping compartment of a train. After the initial embarrassment both went to sleep, the woman on the top bunk, the man on the lower. In the middle of the night the woman leaned over and said, Im sorry to bother you but Im awfully cold and I was wondering if you could possibly pass me another blanket. The man replied with a glint in his eye, Ive got a better idea. Lets pretend were married Why not, giggled the woman? Good, he replied, Get your own blanket! Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

thought only Victory. Admiral Chester Nimitz spoke about the Marines on Iwo Jima and said, Uncommon Valor was a common virtue. That could also be said of the vast majority of GIs who fought; bled and died on the battle fields around the world. Now those who had born the weight of those times were coming home from an unforgettable trip of recognition and gratitude. The plane was landing; the band was playing; fireworks were going off and like all of those around me, I was cheering and waving my American flag. As they came off the plane, it was obvious that the years had taken their toll on these veterans. Many of them disembarked into wheel chairs. Legs that had carried them from San Diego to Japan; and from New York to Berlin, could no longer support them. Eyes that once looked through periscopes; bomb sights; and gun sights now needed thick glasses to focus. Voices that once barked orders and sang lusty songs were now barely audible but in spite of this, there was something special about these veterans. When they saw us and heard our cheers, every one of them sat straighter in their wheelchairs or stood straighter as they walked. Smiles erased the wrinkles on their faces and waves from their weakened arms brought applause. It was as if they realized maybe for the first time just what they had done and more importantly, that a grateful nation remembered. Joining me for this moving experience were Betty and Larry Clarke; Dick Stroub; Sandra Brotherhood; Donna Moran; Elaine and John Rojek; Avis Millett; Holly Bello; Joe Gignac; Larry Lee; Dale Lunsford; Rich Hurley; Dick Francis; Rich and Beverly Idone; Bill Mahar; Trude Smith; Peggy Konar and Marguerite Fiorenza. As Will Rogers once said, We cant all be heroes; sometimes we have to just stand on the curb and cheer. From your reporterOn a personal note, a special thanks to a beautiful lady with a beautiful voice, Linda Jewell Schultz who provided photos for this article and sang America the Beautiful while sitting next to me.

Friday, May 31, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, May 31, 2013 www.smcitizen.com S ometimes it is best to err on the side of caution. This, however, has not always been my modus operandi down through the years. In fact, I am not very good when it comes to practicing anything, just ask the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. As of late, though, I have been practicing caution like I was going to Carnegie Hall. I am not very good at it yet, but my goal is to come to the point of perfection in the area of caution as it touches my person, particularly my health and well-being. This may be because I have reached that age when most men go through a midlife crisis. You can always tell when a man is going through his midlife crisis. He usually wants to prove he is as good at 60-something as he was when he was 20-something. Carelessly throwing caution to the wind, he attempts to do something beyond the energy of his existing body. One sure way to tell if a man is having a midlife crisis is to notice his recent injuries. Personally, when I was 20 I was not good at anything, which has enabled me to skip my midlife crisis. I am glad to be 60 (OK, maybe I am a tad over 60) because now when I get tired I can say I am tired and sit down. At 60-something I have absolutely nothing to prove. I am no better or worse than I was when I was 20. It is, as my wife notes, the ageless wonder of incompetency. The difficulty with growing older is that the old memory juices do not flow as swiftly as they once did. Of course, some of us never had a real gusher in that department anyway. The more memories I have, the less I am able to recall them in the innocency of their reality. Like the fisherman who tells the size of the one that got away. Memory seems to add or subtract according to the benefit of the person conjuring up the memory. A big problem a man in mid-life crisis has is that he does not remember how good he actually was when he was 20, unless of course, his wife knew him at that time. If he could, he would not have to try to replicate it when he is 60. This is one of the unique advantages of maturing. Forgetting always leads to exaggerating. Exaggerating at 60-something leads to injuries. The only purpose of this is to impress people who really are not being impressed. As we grow older things begin to change, and some things change for the better. When I was 20, I could not admit to anybody that I was tired. I would have been the laughing stock in my community if I would admit any such phenomena. You know what they say about the unlimited energy that young people have. Now that I am in my 60s, I can blame my advancing years on just about anything. I love to do that, but at my age I dont have the energy. This has covered a multitude of sins, for which I am so grateful. Of course, it does have one drawback, when someone in their 80s invites me to go for a walk, what in the world can you say to that? This next one has to be one of my favorites. I would love to do that but I have to get home for my afternoon nap. The person will look at me, notice my maturing features and understand that I desperately do need a nap, or something resembling beauty sleep. I found one the other week that has proved quite beneficial. I was invited to a function during the evening, which turned out to be a rather boring affair. Once the meal was over people were milling around engaged in small talk. Nothing bores me quicker than The many excuses of a man in midlife crisis Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder small talk. Not knowing what to do, I pondered the situation for sometime. Then, like lightning from the heavens, I was struck with a brilliant idea. I went up to my host and said, Im sorry, but it is getting near my bedtime and I have strict orders from my doctor to go to bed early. Youll have to excuse me. It worked like a charm. Everybody understood that a person of my age needs to go to bed early. I do not know who thought this up, probably Benjamin Franklin, but whoever it was, I owe them a steak dinPLEASESEESNYDER PAGE20 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.com A Memorial Day service, an opportunity to save a life, and sports are highlighted in this weeks OTOW Happenings. Lions Club The OTOW Lions club presented its annual Memorial Day service on May 27 in the ballroom of the Health and Recreation Building. The event was well-attended and proved to be a moving event that brought deserved honor to our nations fallen heroes. Incoming club president Richard Spahn gave a warm welcome to attendees and guests, followed by the invocation by Chaplain Robert Benson. Lion President Ralph Mills introduced honored guests and fellow Lions. The West Port High School R.O.T.C. presented the Colors, Lion President Ralph Mills lead the audience in the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, and Joan Stenson sang the National Anthem. The OTOW Concert Chorus then sang a medley of patriotic songs, followed by the playing of the theme song of each branch of the military service, with veterans in the audience standing as the theme song of the branch in which they served was heard. Lion Spahn introduced the guest speaker, Lt. Colonel Sharon Murry, USAF, Retired. Lt. Colonel Sharon Murry acknowledged the stirring words of President Bush and Abraham Lincoln that had been read by Lion Spahn, and after so doing, she went off-script, abandoning her prepared speech and proceeding to invite members of the audience to give information about someone dear to them who had given his or her life in the name of freedom. Without question, this was a very moving component of this Memorial Day Service, and I myself felt compelled to share my own story. My father, James Roy Hollyfield, was killed in action in 1951 during the Korean War. I was 5 years old at the time, and as I stated to those in the audience, I was taught that my father was a hero, and I added that he still is. Following Lt. Colonel Murrys address, Kenneth Colen and Lion President Ralph Mills presented the Memorial Wreath, followed by the playing of Taps. The West Port High School R.O.T.C. conducted the Retirement of the Colors, the OTOW Concert Chorus sang God Bless America, and Chaplain Robert Benson gave the benediction. The 2013 Memorial Day service brought honor to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice of life in service to our country to secure freedom both at home and abroad. They will never be forgotten.

Softball It was a season that came down to the last games before determining which team the overall champ would be. The season started with the Cebert Wealth and Great Clips teams looking dismal and feeling they had no chance to move. Both teams struggled at the beginning of the season, but they started putting it together during the last two months. Both started putting wins together and inching up slowly but surely, while Tee Pee Tire, which had a strong team along the way, with the Overholser, started faltering and eventually headed towards the bottom of the standings. The Dr. Dunn team continued to hold on to second place, while the Wise Way team, which led most of the year, refused to give up the first place position. It took a while, but changes came. The Cebert Wealth and Great Clips Teams played so well during the last month that they edged past the Dr. Dunn Team. The last seven games of the season brought about a big change, as both the Cebert Wealth and Great Clips teams finally caught the Wise Way team and moved into a tie for first place. Now it was up to the last game of the year, with the Wise Way team only 1/2 game behind both the Great Clips and Cebert Wealth team. The Wise Way team won its final game, creating a three way tie for first place, along with Cebert Wealth and Great Clips. Now it was up to Cebert Wealth and Great Clips, either one winning their final game and ending up as the champs in the Winter League. Well, as fate would have it, both teams lost, and Wise Way returned to its first place position and became the Champs behind their manager, Jimmu Russo. It was a battle to the end, and it was a great season, as there was contention for top place throughout the year.

People from every walk of life; most carrying American Flags of various sizes, were milling around in a state of excitement. It was the same excitement felt at a sporting event only deeper; more intense; more emotional. Kingdom of the Sun Band tuned their instruments and adjusted their music. Occasionally they, like the crowd around them, would look skyward. After a tapping of the baton on the music stand, the band leader signaled his musicians. A moment later, the strains of God Bless America rang out and those in the stands began to sing along. On May 23 it was my privilege to join with a score of other Cherrywood residents in attending the arrival of the final Honor Flight project in Marion County. Marion County had the third largest contingent of World War II veterans in the country to take part in this program. First, let me explain what the Honor Flight project is exactly. This eight year long program was meant to allow every World War II veteran who was able to board a plane or bus, the opportunity to go to Washington D.C. and see the monument that stands there documenting the accomplishments and sacrifices they made to save the world. While the veterans themselves paid nothing, their escorts accompanying them paid full fare and all of their own expenses. This was a sacrifice of love on their part for the men and women of the war who are now in their eighties and nineties. During their tour of the WW II monument, many saw the names of places where they once fought; CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 names of places they liberated and battles that they fought. Their units were recognized from the Pacific and European Theaters of War. Vivid memories were brought back to them; both good and bad. For most, this was a once in a lifetime experience never to be forgotten. Now let me explain just a little bit of why this was the Greatest Generation. In their youth, they were children of the Great Depression. For many, there were no new clothes from department stores and no over flowing shopping carts from the grocery. Shoes were a once a year item if that and collecting pop bottles for spending money was common. Life was a hardship and survival before the time of modern antibiotics was not always assured. Yet, for the most part, survive they did, getting an education as best as possible from a system that taught the three Rs strictly and diligently. High school and college were luxuries reserved for those who didnt have to struggle with a hand to mouth existence. Politically, there were factors playing in this country that challenged young and old alike. The communist movement was taking hold due to difficult economic times. In Europe, Nazism was sweeping the continent; Fascism was in Italy and the militarists had taken hold in Japan. Wars and rumors of war as well as civil unrest were all around that generation. Then, on December 7, 1941, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor Hawaii plunging the United States into the Second World War. Germany followed by declaring war on the United States a few days later. In a matter of less than a week our nation was at war on two fronts across two oceans and our survival was far from sure. It was at that time and for the next five years that the Greatest Generation stepped up. Filling the ranks of the military was a major part of what the young men and a percentage of young women did to answer the call but everyone rolled up their sleeves and pitched in. Those too old to enter the military service worked twelve to sixteen hour days in the factories. Women who until that time had been treated almost as second class citizens were recruited and put to work building planes; tanks; ships; munitions and the million other items needed to supply a war effort. Children collected scrap iron; tires; pots and pans; aluminum and everything else that could be used to keep the hungry machines of industry working. At the same time, they along with their parents endured the rationing of everything from gasoline and tires to sugar and meat. In spite of these civilian sacrifices, it was the young men of the day who primarily bore the brunt of the hardships of war. In the skies over Europe the Eighth Air Force suffered horrendous losses as they flew their bombers usually unescorted by fighters, through the flak and enemy planes to drop their bombs on oil factories and other military targets. On the ground, young Americans would train and on June 6, 1944, they would invade Fortress Europe along the Normandy coast. During the invasion thousands of American GIs would die and America would learn the names of beaches like Omaha and Utah and towns like Vierville and Saint Mere Eglise. In the Pacific, huge naval battles would gain names like, Coral Sea; Midway and Philippine Sea. Islands that most Americans never new existed would cost the lives of thousands of Marines. Guadalcanal; Tarawa; Okinawa and Iwo Jima would be burned into the American psyche forever Western Union would become a global company bringing messages that no one wanted. Gold Star Mothers would form as an organization for those who had lost sons or daughters; the Disabled Veterans and Purple Heart Associations would gain members by the hundreds. This is only a brief glimpse as to what it was like to live through that time in history. Hardship; sacrifice; death; disabilities; and divided families were just a normal way of life. Through it all, there was one thought and one Honor Flight members.

Few of our groups enjoy the camaraderie of an evening of friendly competition and a social gathering on the patio following the game. Many players come out with their families who either root them on or just sit and enjoy friendly chat with their neighbors. If youve never been to a Bocce Ball night, you might want to come out and see for yourselves just how much fun it can be. Bring your own liquid refreshments and snacks if you like and learn a fun game with a fun crowd. Movie NightThrill to the newly released movie, Hitchcock CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 on June 4 at 7 p.m. in the clubhouse. The screen comes alive with the tale of Alfred Hitchcock and his wife Alma Reville as they endure personal intrigue while making the horror film classic, Psycho. Anthony Hopkins and Scarlett Johansson star in this drama playing the lead characters. There are some comic moments and some behind the scenes revelations that make the movie intriguing and compelling. Movie nights are free at Cherrywood so get your friends together and come on out for an evening of first run entertainment. Bring your own refreshments or enjoy the free pop corn and lemonade provided. Youll relax in the comfort of the friendly surroundings and have a great evening.

Dinner served between 5 and 5:30. Indy 500Our avid racing fans enjoyed the Indianapolis 500 in the cool comfort of the clubhouse watching the big screen and cheering on their favorites. The competition was fierce with the lead changing an amazing 68 times during the race. Finally, Tony Kanaan pulled across the finish line under the yellow caution light. A good time was had by all and the Wounded Warrior Project benefited from the proceeds of this event. Thanks to the Social Committee and Fred OHern for their hard work in providing our residents with a great time.

For only $4 per ticket, youll have a great time with friends and neighbors as you sway to the music of Rich Becotte and are cooled down for the day by soft summer breezes.

Bring your refreshments of choice and come out and try to out smart me on questions about holidays; the Indy 500 and other assorted totally useless information. We always have a good time and it only costs a buck to play. We divide into teams of three or four people and pass out an answer sheet. Each team then watches the big screen for the questions, jotting down the best of the multiple choice answers. If youve been to Trivia you know how much fun it is and if you havent, youre missing an inexpensive evening of entertainment and knowledge. So pack up your friends and neighbors; your favorite refreshment and join us. Proceeds from our game go to the Wounded Warrior Fund so youll be having a good time and helping a very worthy cause also.

Individuals arrive with nothing but the clothes on their backs and until they can get into the various programs, they survive on donations from the community. Our Veterans Club has long been supporters of this worthwhile effort and we are asking you to donate food; personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies. If you would be generous enough to put out a bag or two of items by your mail box on Thursday, June 20 by 11 a.m. our volunteers will come by and pick them up. In addition, there will be a Veterans Club representative at the clubhouse between 9:30 and 11 a.m. on Friday and Saturday to take in your contributions. Last time we did this, we were able to supply four pick up trucks full of food and supplies for these individuals. We hope to exceed that amount in this food drive. Please help a down and out veteran become part of the community again by donating non-perishable food; soap; detergent; mops; paper towels etc to this project. Thank you in advance for your care and concern. Blood Drive June 25 at the clubhouse, the Big Red Bus will again be accepting blood donations.

The practice drill included a mock hurricane and two simulated tornados. The EOC is designed to put responsible people in a position where they can respond to emergency situations quickly and effectively. Along with law enforcement and other first responders, power companies; communications experts; public affairs personnel; and scores of other agencies and qualified emergency managers are on hand to deal with any situation that might arise. During the drill, Don Messenger and Dave Seigel were tasked with trying to overload the communications system with bogus calls. By so doing, the telephone, radio and short wave capabilities of the EOC could be tested. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 Bill Brotherhood and Mick James were assigned to try and be disruptive individuals at shelters and other emergency facilities. They were well matched for their roles me thinks. By doing this kind of exercise, everyone gains knowledge and expertise in handling difficult problems and difficult people. We are indeed fortunate to have people like Dave; Mick; Bill and Don who took the entire day in order to prepare for what we hope will never happen. We do know that should a disaster strike our area and our community, the Cherrywood CERT team will be there for us. If you would like to become part of this vital resource, please plan to attend the next meeting at 8:30 a.m. in the clubhouse on June 19. You will get all the details at that time as to how you can become a life saver; an emergency responder; and a member of this excellently trained team.

Individuals arrive with nothing but the clothes on their backs and until they can get into the various programs, they survive on donations from the community. Our Veterans Club has long been supporters of this worthwhile effort and we are asking you to donate food; personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies. If you would be generous enough to put out a bag or two of items by your mail box on Thursday, June 20 by 11 a.m. our volunteers will come by and pick them up. In addition, there will be a Veterans Club representative at the clubhouse between 9:30 and 11 a.m. on Friday and Saturday to take in your contributions. Last time we did this, we were able to supply four pick up trucks full of food and supplies for these individuals. We hope to exceed that amount in this food drive. Please help a down and out veteran become part of the community again by donating non-perishable food; soap; detergent; mops; paper towels etc to this project. Thank you in advance for your care and concern. Blood Drive June 25 at the clubhouse, the Big Red Bus will again be accepting blood donations. From 9 a.m. until noon, professionals will be on hand to take your gift of life. There is an urgent need for all types of blood because our snowbirds are up north and summer accidents and medical needs continue. This is a quick and easy way to be a real hero.

The practice drill included a mock hurricane and two simulated tornados. The EOC is designed to put responsible people in a position where they can respond to emergency situations quickly and effectively. Along with law enforcement and other first responders, power companies; communications experts; public affairs personnel; and scores of other agencies and qualified emergency managers are on hand to deal with any situation that might arise. During the drill, Don Messenger and Dave Seigel were tasked with trying to overload the communications system with bogus calls. By so doing, the telephone, radio and short wave capabilities of the EOC could be tested. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 Bill Brotherhood and Mick James were assigned to try and be disruptive individuals at shelters and other emergency facilities. They were well matched for their roles me thinks. By doing this kind of exercise, everyone gains knowledge and expertise in handling difficult problems and difficult people. We are indeed fortunate to have people like Dave; Mick; Bill and Don who took the entire day in order to prepare for what we hope will never happen. We do know that should a disaster strike our area and our community, the Cherrywood CERT team will be there for us. If you would like to become part of this vital resource, please plan to attend the next meeting at 8:30 a.m. in the clubhouse on June 19. You will get all the details at that time as to how you can become a life saver; an emergency responder; and a member of this excellently trained team.

Few of our groups enjoy the camaraderie of an evening of friendly competition and a social gathering on the patio following the game. Many players come out with their families who either root them on or just sit and enjoy friendly chat with their neighbors. If youve never been to a Bocce Ball night, you might want to come out and see for yourselves just how much fun it can be. Bring your own liquid refreshments and snacks if you like and learn a fun game with a fun crowd. Movie NightThrill to the newly released movie, Hitchcock CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 on June 4 at 7 p.m. in the clubhouse. The screen comes alive with the tale of Alfred Hitchcock and his wife Alma Reville as they endure personal intrigue while making the horror film classic, Psycho. Anthony Hopkins and Scarlett Johansson star in this drama playing the lead characters. There are some comic moments and some behind the scenes revelations that make the movie intriguing and compelling. Movie nights are free at Cherrywood so get your friends together and come on out for an evening of first run entertainment. Bring your own refreshments or enjoy the free pop corn and lemonade provided. Youll relax in the comfort of the friendly surroundings and have a great evening.

Dinner served between 5 and 5:30. Indy 500Our avid racing fans enjoyed the Indianapolis 500 in the cool comfort of the clubhouse watching the big screen and cheering on their favorites. The competition was fierce with the lead changing an amazing 68 times during the race. Finally, Tony Kanaan pulled across the finish line under the yellow caution light. A good time was had by all and the Wounded Warrior Project benefited from the proceeds of this event. Thanks to the Social Committee and Fred OHern for their hard work in providing our residents with a great time.

For only $4 per ticket, youll have a great time with friends and neighbors as you sway to the music of Rich Becotte and are cooled down for the day by soft summer breezes.

People from every walk of life; most carrying American Flags of various sizes, were milling around in a state of excitement. It was the same excitement felt at a sporting event only deeper; more intense; more emotional. Kingdom of the Sun Band tuned their instruments and adjusted their music. Occasionally they, like the crowd around them, would look skyward. After a tapping of the baton on the music stand, the band leader signaled his musicians. A moment later, the strains of God Bless America rang out and those in the stands began to sing along. On May 23 it was my privilege to join with a score of other Cherrywood residents in attending the arrival of the final Honor Flight project in Marion County. Marion County had the third largest contingent of World War II veterans in the country to take part in this program. First, let me explain what the Honor Flight project is exactly. This eight year long program was meant to allow every World War II veteran who was able to board a plane or bus, the opportunity to go to Washington D.C. and see the monument that stands there documenting the accomplishments and sacrifices they made to save the world. While the veterans themselves paid nothing, their escorts accompanying them paid full fare and all of their own expenses. This was a sacrifice of love on their part for the men and women of the war who are now in their eighties and nineties. During their tour of the WW II monument, many saw the names of places where they once fought; CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 names of places they liberated and battles that they fought. Their units were recognized from the Pacific and European Theaters of War. Vivid memories were brought back to them; both good and bad. For most, this was a once in a lifetime experience never to be forgotten. Now let me explain just a little bit of why this was the Greatest Generation. In their youth, they were children of the Great Depression. For many, there were no new clothes from department stores and no over flowing shopping carts from the grocery. Shoes were a once a year item if that and collecting pop bottles for spending money was common. Life was a hardship and survival before the time of modern antibiotics was not always assured. Yet, for the most part, survive they did, getting an education as best as possible from a system that taught the three Rs strictly and diligently. High school and college were luxuries reserved for those who didnt have to struggle with a hand to mouth existence. Politically, there were factors playing in this country that challenged young and old alike. The communist movement was taking hold due to difficult economic times. In Europe, Nazism was sweeping the continent; Fascism was in Italy and the militarists had taken hold in Japan. Wars and rumors of war as well as civil unrest were all around that generation. Then, on December 7, 1941, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor Hawaii plunging the United States into the Second World War. Germany followed by declaring war on the United States a few days later. In a matter of less than a week our nation was at war on two fronts across two oceans and our survival was far from sure. It was at that time and for the next five years that the Greatest Generation stepped up. Filling the ranks of the military was a major part of what the young men and a percentage of young women did to answer the call but everyone rolled up their sleeves and pitched in. Those too old to enter the military service worked twelve to sixteen hour days in the factories. Women who until that time had been treated almost as second class citizens were recruited and put to work building planes; tanks; ships; munitions and the million other items needed to supply a war effort. Children collected scrap iron; tires; pots and pans; aluminum and everything else that could be used to keep the hungry machines of industry working. At the same time, they along with their parents endured the rationing of everything from gasoline and tires to sugar and meat. In spite of these civilian sacrifices, it was the young men of the day who primarily bore the brunt of the hardships of war. In the skies over Europe the Eighth Air Force suffered horrendous losses as they flew their bombers usually unescorted by fighters, through the flak and enemy planes to drop their bombs on oil factories and other military targets. On the ground, young Americans would train and on June 6, 1944, they would invade Fortress Europe along the Normandy coast. During the invasion thousands of American GIs would die and America would learn the names of beaches like Omaha and Utah and towns like Vierville and Saint Mere Eglise. In the Pacific, huge naval battles would gain names like, Coral Sea; Midway and Philippine Sea. Islands that most Americans never new existed would cost the lives of thousands of Marines. Guadalcanal; Tarawa; Okinawa and Iwo Jima would be burned into the American psyche forever Western Union would become a global company bringing messages that no one wanted. Gold Star Mothers would form as an organization for those who had lost sons or daughters; the Disabled Veterans and Purple Heart Associations would gain members by the hundreds. This is only a brief glimpse as to what it was like to live through that time in history. Hardship; sacrifice; death; disabilities; and divided families were just a normal way of life. Through it all, there was one thought and one Honor Flight members.

thought only Victory. Admiral Chester Nimitz spoke about the Marines on Iwo Jima and said, Uncommon Valor was a common virtue. That could also be said of the vast majority of GIs who fought; bled and died on the battle fields around the world. Now those who had born the weight of those times were coming home from an unforgettable trip of recognition and gratitude. The plane was landing; the band was playing; fireworks were going off and like all of those around me, I was cheering and waving my American flag. As they came off the plane, it was obvious that the years had taken their toll on these veterans. Many of them disembarked into wheel chairs. Legs that had carried them from San Diego to Japan; and from New York to Berlin, could no longer support them. Eyes that once looked through periscopes; bomb sights; and gun sights now needed thick glasses to focus. Voices that once barked orders and sang lusty songs were now barely audible but in spite of this, there was something special about these veterans. When they saw us and heard our cheers, every one of them sat straighter in their wheelchairs or stood straighter as they walked. Smiles erased the wrinkles on their faces and waves from their weakened arms brought applause. It was as if they realized maybe for the first time just what they had done and more importantly, that a grateful nation remembered. Joining me for this moving experience were Betty and Larry Clarke; Dick Stroub; Sandra Brotherhood; Donna Moran; Elaine and John Rojek; Avis Millett; Holly Bello; Joe Gignac; Larry Lee; Dale Lunsford; Rich Hurley; Dick Francis; Rich and Beverly Idone; Bill Mahar; Trude Smith; Peggy Konar and Marguerite Fiorenza. As Will Rogers once said, We cant all be heroes; sometimes we have to just stand on the curb and cheer.

Friday, May 31, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, May 31, 2013 www.smcitizen.com S ometimes it is best to err on the side of caution. This, however, has not always been my modus operandi down through the years. In fact, I am not very good when it comes to practicing anything, just ask the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. As of late, though, I have been practicing caution like I was going to Carnegie Hall. I am not very good at it yet, but my goal is to come to the point of perfection in the area of caution as it touches my person, particularly my health and well-being. This may be because I have reached that age when most men go through a midlife crisis. You can always tell when a man is going through his midlife crisis. He usually wants to prove he is as good at 60-something as he was when he was 20-something. Carelessly throwing caution to the wind, he attempts to do something beyond the energy of his existing body. One sure way to tell if a man is having a midlife crisis is to notice his recent injuries. Personally, when I was 20 I was not good at anything, which has enabled me to skip my midlife crisis. I am glad to be 60 (OK, maybe I am a tad over 60) because now when I get tired I can say I am tired and sit down. At 60-something I have absolutely nothing to prove. I am no better or worse than I was when I was 20. It is, as my wife notes, the ageless wonder of incompetency. The difficulty with growing older is that the old memory juices do not flow as swiftly as they once did. Of course, some of us never had a real gusher in that department anyway. The more memories I have, the less I am able to recall them in the innocency of their reality. Like the fisherman who tells the size of the one that got away. Memory seems to add or subtract according to the benefit of the person conjuring up the memory. A big problem a man in mid-life crisis has is that he does not remember how good he actually was when he was 20, unless of course, his wife knew him at that time. If he could, he would not have to try to replicate it when he is 60. This is one of the unique advantages of maturing. Forgetting always leads to exaggerating. Exaggerating at 60-something leads to injuries. The only purpose of this is to impress people who really are not being impressed. As we grow older things begin to change, and some things change for the better. When I was 20, I could not admit to anybody that I was tired. I would have been the laughing stock in my community if I would admit any such phenomena. You know what they say about the unlimited energy that young people have. Now that I am in my 60s, I can blame my advancing years on just about anything. I love to do that, but at my age I dont have the energy. This has covered a multitude of sins, for which I am so grateful. Of course, it does have one drawback, when someone in their 80s invites me to go for a walk, what in the world can you say to that? This next one has to be one of my favorites. I would love to do that but I have to get home for my afternoon nap. The person will look at me, notice my maturing features and understand that I desperately do need a nap, or something resembling beauty sleep. I found one the other week that has proved quite beneficial. I was invited to a function during the evening, which turned out to be a rather boring affair. Once the meal was over people were milling around engaged in small talk. Nothing bores me quicker than The many excuses of a man in midlife crisis Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder small talk. Not knowing what to do, I pondered the situation for sometime. Then, like lightning from the heavens, I was struck with a brilliant idea. I went up to my host and said, Im sorry, but it is getting near my bedtime and I have strict orders from my doctor to go to bed early. Youll have to excuse me. It worked like a charm. Everybody understood that a person of my age needs to go to bed early. I do not know who thought this up, probably Benjamin Franklin, but whoever it was, I owe them a steak dinPLEASESEESNYDER PAGE20 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.com A Memorial Day service, an opportunity to save a life, and sports are highlighted in this weeks OTOW Happenings. Lions Club The OTOW Lions club presented its annual Memorial Day service on May 27 in the ballroom of the Health and Recreation Building. The event was well-attended and proved to be a moving event that brought deserved honor to our nations fallen heroes. Incoming club president Richard Spahn gave a warm welcome to attendees and guests, followed by the invocation by Chaplain Robert Benson. Lion President Ralph Mills introduced honored guests and fellow Lions. The West Port High School R.O.T.C. presented the Colors, Lion President Ralph Mills lead the audience in the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, and Joan Stenson sang the National Anthem. The OTOW Concert Chorus then sang a medley of patriotic songs, followed by the playing of the theme song of each branch of the military service, with veterans in the audience standing as the theme song of the branch in which they served was heard. Lion Spahn introduced the guest speaker, Lt. Colonel Sharon Murry, USAF, Retired. Lt. Colonel Sharon Murry acknowledged the stirring words of President Bush and Abraham Lincoln that had been read by Lion Spahn, and after so doing, she went off-script, abandoning her prepared speech and proceeding to invite members of the audience to give information about someone dear to them who had given his or her life in the name of freedom. Without question, this was a very moving component of this Memorial Day Service, and I myself felt compelled to share my own story. My father, James Roy Hollyfield, was killed in action in 1951 during the Korean War. I was 5 years old at the time, and as I stated to those in the audience, I was taught that my father was a hero, and I added that he still is. Following Lt. Colonel Murrys address, Kenneth Colen and Lion President Ralph Mills presented the Memorial Wreath, followed by the playing of Taps. The West Port High School R.O.T.C. conducted the Retirement of the Colors, the OTOW Concert Chorus sang God Bless America, and Chaplain Robert Benson gave the benediction. The 2013 Memorial Day service brought honor to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice of life in service to our country to secure freedom both at home and abroad. They will never be forgotten.

Softball It was a season that came down to the last games before determining which team the overall champ would be. The season started with the Cebert Wealth and Great Clips teams looking dismal and feeling they had no chance to move. Both teams struggled at the beginning of the season, but they started putting it together during the last two months. Both started putting wins together and inching up slowly but surely, while Tee Pee Tire, which had a strong team along the way, with the Overholser, started faltering and eventually headed towards the bottom of the standings. The Dr. Dunn team continued to hold on to second place, while the Wise Way team, which led most of the year, refused to give up the first place position. It took a while, but changes came. The Cebert Wealth and Great Clips Teams played so well during the last month that they edged past the Dr. Dunn Team. The last seven games of the season brought about a big change, as both the Cebert Wealth and Great Clips teams finally caught the Wise Way team and moved into a tie for first place. Now it was up to the last game of the year, with the Wise Way team only 1/2 game behind both the Great Clips and Cebert Wealth team. The Wise Way team won its final game, creating a three way tie for first place, along with Cebert Wealth and Great Clips. Now it was up to Cebert Wealth and Great Clips, either one winning their final game and ending up as the champs in the Winter League. Well, as fate would have it, both teams lost, and Wise Way returned to its first place position and became the Champs behind their manager, Jimmu Russo. It was a battle to the end, and it was a great season, as there was contention for top place throughout the year.

comprehension. Now theres the rub. Interest and incentive need to be generated within the home. My wifes parents and mine finished schooling at eighth grade. Her parents grew up in farm and factory country; mine in a big city. With optimism, they sent us to public schools during the worst years of the great depression and the hard times of World War II. Our parents read the daily papers, and challenged themselves with word puzzles. They also read paperback novels and hard cover books from their modest public libraries. Our reading habits were pre-K stimulated by parental powers of example. There are some little-known secrets in early reading proficiency. While we are all prisoners of the genes we inherited, there is evidence that intelligence is not necessarily limited by our birth certificates. Research indicates that West Indian African-Americans, Asian-Americans, and Jewish Americans tend to get more out of U.S. education than other ethnic groups because of student diligence and cultural encouragement within their families. As we were writing this article, we read a newspaper report of encouraging comments to the Public Policy Institute of Marion County by David Lawrence, former publisher of the Miami Herald and education activist. His concern is that so many children in Marion County are in poor shape as to their reading proficiency. Mr. Lawrences bulls-eye suggestion is that improving the quality of parenting and childrens environment may be more important than focusing on improvements in teaching quality. President Obama, the state of Florida, advocacy groups, and some education scholars are committed to universal pre-kindergarten education to help all children attain reading proficiency. Sounds like a right thing to do. However, were skeptical about another federal education initiative. The No Child Left Behind Program, intended to close the gaps between racial and ethnic groups, was unsuccessful. After 10 years and billions of dollars, that federal flagship program for disadvantaged students failed many children who were behind when the program was initiated in 2001. Our reservation is that universal preK could develop into another government program which may excuse rather than encourage family commitments to bettering childrens academic growth. In education matters, government is too often a creator of expensive unintended consequences.

West Marion Moose Lodge activities BY JEAN DIPIERO Special to the Citizen On Sunday, May 26, the Indigo East community held its Memorial Day Pot Luck dinner. There was a great turnout. Before the dinner bell rang, Fred Masone told about the history of Memorial Day and asked for a moment of silence for our fallen service men and women. There was a delectable buffet to choose from. The neighbors really went all out. The menu included pulled pork, chicken parmigiana, eggplant parmigiana, fried chicken, meatballs, sausage with peppers, beef stew, different types of pasta salads, potato salad, several varieties of casseroles, bean salad, deviled eggs and much more. The desserts were awesome too. There were different pies, cakes and cupcakes. Everything was delicious. The tables were decorated with red/white/ blue tablecloths along with red/white/blue flowers as the centerpiece on each table. There was a 50/50 raffle as well. Special thanks to the following people who planned and organized this event: Mary Lou, Fred and Freddy Jr. Masone, Harold and Cathy Brouillard, Marcia Connolly, Cookie and Gordon Daniels, Mary Pat Giffin, Prudence Goodman, Sarah Logue, Dick and Paula Lord and Mary Walters.

PHOTOS BY FRANK DIPIERO O n this day in 1879 the first electric railway opened at the Berlin Trades Exposition and in 1891 work on trans-Siberian railway began. Here in the United States railroad expansion occurred as the West was opened. Railroad agents told the Navajo, The coming of the Iron Horse will bring great prosperity to the Redman. But the Indians had reservations. The western railroads were fairly primitive. Being in business to make money, the railroad operators tried to increase revenue on each trip by carrying more people wanting to move to the West. They restricted passengers to be under a certain weight, in order to fit three people in a seat instead of only two. Not only was this extremely uncomfortable for the travelers, but it became obvious to those wishing to relocate that if this policy continued there would be no West for the reary. Todays world is not much different. The Big Apple A Long Island railroad train was moving along at its usual five-mile-an-hour clip when it stopped suddenly. A passenger asked the conductor, Why are we stopped? The conductor said, Theres a big turtle on the track. The passenger said, We stopped for a turtle ten minutes ago. The conductor said, I know, but we caught up with it again! Middle U.S.The train was about to pull out of the station. A young man managed to reach the train, throw his briefcase onto the cars steps, and climb aboard, gasping for air. Looking at him, another rider said, Young man, you should be in better shape. At your age, I could catch the train by a gnats whisker and still be fresh. Look at you, panting away. The young man took a deep breath and said, Pop, I missed this train at the last station. One lump or two?Poland still has a number of steam locomotives. One of them was running low on coal at night. The engineer said to his fireman, Were coming to a town, lets stop and send the porter out to get more coal. Can you see the name of the town on the depot sign? The fireman replied, It appears to be Danzig in the dark. The engineer shouted, Buy coal, Porter!Crime tracksDuring the war a soldier had been lashed to the train tracks and run over. The police quickly investigated the incident. At the ensuing press conference the police chief was asked if this were part of a foreign plot. No, said the chief, We believe there was a locomotive. Short linesAmtrak is very precise. If you call up and ask what time the noon train gets to California, the agent will tell you, Eight p.m.-give or take a few days. A railroad engineer must be sure not to lose his train of thought, or he might go down the wrong track. A fired newspaper editor took an express train out of town. Traveling by train is safer than flying. You dont have to worry about the conductor sitting on the engineers lap. The railroad brakeman hid his whiskey in the Cabooze. The boy who did a project on trains had to keep track of everything. The trainman who stepped on a live 3rd rail was a conductor. The railway had a safety problem, but tried to cover its tracks. You can be on the right track and still get hit by a train. One day the kleptomaniac decided to take the five o-clock train. But the authorities made him give it back. A train load of paint derailed. Nearby businesses were put in the red. A man said to the ticket agent, Id better take the Amtrak to Cleveland. The ticket agent said, I wish you would. Were sick of it here! Sleeper A man and a woman who had never met were accidentally put in the same sleeping compartment of a train. After the initial embarrassment both went to sleep, the woman on the top bunk, the man on the lower. In the middle of the night the woman leaned over and said, Im sorry to bother you but Im awfully cold and I was wondering if you could possibly pass me another blanket. The man replied with a glint in his eye, Ive got a better idea. Lets pretend were married Why not, giggled the woman? Good, he replied, Get your own blanket! Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

It has now become part of my get-out-ofboring-situations arsenal. I was thinking about this the other day another good excuse popped into my head. Somebody invited me to come and play softball. At the time, they caught me off guard and I was trying to wiggle out of such an invitation. Then it dawned on me. I am sorry, I would like to but my health insurance does not cover that kind of activity. Whether my health insurance would cover that, I have no idea, but neither does anybody else, only my doctor knows for sure. While I was pondering this, I was reminded of a word from the Proverbs. Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain (Proverbs 25:14 KJV). Whoever boasts to others about their physical prowess is only fooling himself. The Rev. James L.

T hroughout life, reading is not just fundamental. Its critical. Proficient readers can master just about anything. Sadly, children without words are seriously handicapped and may carry that burden for a lifetime, unless they are introduced to the power of reading. Recently released results of the FCAT third-grade reading scores for Marion County were about the same as last year. Fifty-one percent of Marion third graders scored as proficient readers. An encouraging column adjacent to the third-grade report was an article about the love-ofreading recognition ceremony for fifth graders at Greenway Elementary School. The headline was: Schools try to avoid students taking vacation from reading. Studies indicate that students who dont read during vacation may fall as much as three months behind in spelling and Friday, May 31, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISE Call 854-3986 ADVERTISING www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, May 31, 2013 This is a yearly column, updated with latest information. T his is a big month for many young people in Marion County, as they leave high school and move on to the next phase of their lives. Graduation ceremonies are scheduled for local high schools, a landmark day for a few hundred young adults who are ready to venture out into the world. This graduating class has been through a little more than many of us. These young people were firstgraders on Sept. 11, 2001, when two planes smashed into the World Trade Center in New York, one hit the Pentagon and another crashed in Pennsylvania, changing the face of America forever. They are venturing into an uncertain world, one filled with fear of terrorism, one filled with eroding freedoms in the name of security. Those of us who have lived through many years of strife and conflict and many years of prosperity and peace, can give some words of advice to the young graduates. Whether they pay attention is up to them, and whether they agree is also up to them. But at least its a point of view that they can use to steer them in whatever direction they want to go. With just a few changes from the previous years columns, here we go: 1. If you have a chance to continue your education, by all means do so. In this era, it is almost impossible to advance yourself in the job market without some sort of post-secondary education. It can be college, junior college, trade school or specialized classes, but make sure you learn as much as you can. Youve made it through one important period youve got your high school diploma. Now look to see what else you can do to learn. Your brains are still relatively young you have a better capacity to learn than many of us old dogs, who find it hard to learn new tricks. 2. If you go to college, learn the difference between opinion and fact from your professors. The good ones will make it clear for you but there are some who will ram their thoughts down your throat, without making it clear that its what they think, not what the world accepts as truth. 3. If you havent already, develop a good work ethic. When it comes to studying and school assignments, the days of someone looking over your shoulder to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to are over. Youre on your own. Your education, or your job, are what you make it. Take a look at employment ads in almost every major field. Theyll say things like self-starter or must work well without supervision. Managers in the business world dont want to have to watch every step that you do. Learn to work by yourself with maximum effort. Remember, the world doesnt owe you a living you have to go out and make your own mark. 4. Choose your friends wisely. Hang around with people who have good goals, who want to make a decent mark in this world. There was a great commercial on TV (I cant remember what product it was for) where one guy in a group of wild young people gets a suit-and-tie job, so the others always want him to buy dinner, because they arent doing a thing. You will undoubtedly encounter some of these people steer clear and be your own person. Some years later, these will be the folks who will come to you begging for a job. 5. Stay active. There will come a time in your life when you cant exercise like you used to, but that day isnt here yet for most of you. Im afraid that we are producing a generation of computer-chair potatoes (as opposed to couch potatoes), those who do nothing but sit in front of a computer screen or play with a phone or tablet for all their free time. Get out and do something. You can walk, you can run, you can play a sport, you can swim just do something. Its good for your mind and your body. 6. Along that same line, learn how to talk to people, face to face. There is entirely too much Facebook, Tweeting, and other social networking going on, but sometimes young people have to talk to someone in person and they dont know what to say, or how to behave. Get off the phone and the computer and speak to people. Someday when youre interviewing for a job, it wont be on Facebook. But someday during that same job interview, your potential boss is going to ask permission to look at your Facebook postings, and all that cute little stuff and foul language that some of you might use will come back to haunt you. 7. Volunteer in the community. There are all sorts of things that need doing. Some involve some physical work, others involve using your brains to help people. Give something back to the community show that you care. You never know someday you may be one of the people who needs help, and maybe there will be folks around who will recall what you did for others, and youll get some help in return. And dont do it for the glory and the recognition. The best volunteers are those who work behind the scenes, who get nothing out of it but personal satisfaction. 8. Finally, keep the faith, and not just religious faith. If you are a religious person, you will be tested. Most of those who are religious find great solace in that faith, so dont let yourself get tempted away from it. But there is another kind of faith, faith in your fellow human beings, faith in the country. Be aware of the times you live in, for sure, but realize there are so many places in the world that are worse off than we are. While we live in the fear that there could be another attack on us somewhere in the U.S., there are people who live with the very real fear of being blown up every day. While we have medical care available to us when we get sick, there are people who succumb to the least little illness because their bodies cant fight diseases, or they have no access to things as simple as an aspirin. As you depart from high school, thank your teachers, your counselors, your school employees. They surely dont get rich doing what they do, but almost all of them love their profession. Someday you will realize how good the days of high school were. But for now, youve reached your goal of getting your diploma, which is a job well done. Congratulations!

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or T he common lament among the ranks of our nations disabled veterans filing for service-connected disability compensation from the VA is, Delay, deny, wait till I die. As a candidate for the presidency, President Obama pledged to revamp the Veterans Affairs (VA) claims process. When General Eric Shinseki, a former Army Chief of Staff and highly respected combat wounded veteran, was appointed as the VA Secretary in 2009, he promised to end the claims backlog in two years. The promises of President Obama and Secretary Shinseki raised the hopes of veterans that the claims backlog would finally be eliminated. Instead, the backlog has gotten intolerably worse. Internal VA documents obtained by the Center for Investigative Reporting reveal the agencys claims process has virtually collapsed. The number of claimants waiting more than a year for their benefits has exploded from 11,000 in 2009 to 245,000 in December 2012 an increase of more than 2,000 percent. Particularly troubling is that the number of veterans dying before their claims were approved has skyrocketed. Between 2009 and 2012, the number of deceased veterans receiving approval too late for the compensation to help them while they were alive jumped from 6,400 to 19,500. Three factors in particular have contributed to the VAs inability to fulfill the promises of President Obama and Secretary Shinseki. Foremost is the VAs antiquated processing system. After spending more than half a billion dollars on a new computer system the past four years, 97 percent of all claims inexplicably remain on paper. The paper-laden claims process is further compounded by a points system that gives performance bonuses to workers for sending letters to veterans but not for spending extra time reading a claims file. Despite the VA publicly reporting it has hired 3,300 additional personnel since 2010, staffing at the VAs 58 regional offices only increased by fewer than 300 people due to turnover and the loss of more than 2,000 workers temporarily paid through stimulus funds. Lastly, with claims processors overwhelmed by an ever-burdensome workload, processing errors have reached a crisis state and a sense of helpless resignation has made the disability compensation claims of veterans secondary to struggling through another workday. Second only to the Department of Defense in size, the VA is saddled by a cumbersome bureaucracy, indurate procedures and inadequate staffing. As such, while the federal government has deemed some private corporations too big to fail, the VAs intolerable claims record argues it may be too big to be fixed. If the VA claims process is ever going to be fixed, it must be revamped and sufficiently resourced. Furthermore, the VA leadership, from the Secretary on down, must be held strictly accountable for ending this intolerable situation once and for all. Our nations disabled veterans merit more than hollow promises. Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Friday, May 31, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, May 31, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) An apparent act of injustice might turn out to be either an error in judgment or just plain stupidity. So calm down and cool off, and let the explanations roll out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its upsetting when someone you trusted might have failed you. But with new opportunities ahead, youll soon be too busy to feel even a wee bit sorry for yourself. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A sense of uncertainty could be a good reason to change your position on an important matter. Someone close might try to talk you out of it, but its your decision to make. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Being too zealous in pursuing your goal could create some resistance. Try to be more mindful of what you ask people to do, and theyll be more likely to do it. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Things change as you go from being ignored to being Lionized once again. This is a good time to reintroduce those previously rejected ideas to a more receptive audience. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Someone new in your life creates both anticipation as well as anxiety. Avoid the potential for misunderstandings by watching what you say and how you say it. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Watch your budget so that you dont overspend now and have less to invest when the time is right later on. Arrange to share your weekend with someone special. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) The temptation to involve yourself in a friends or family members personal problems is laudable. But get the facts before you make a firm commitment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might be upset by some of your critics. But most of your associates continue to keep the faith in your ability to get the job done, and done well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Youve reached an important point in your ongoing pursuit of your goals. You might now want to consider letting someone you trust join you on your journey. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youve been going through a spate of uncertainty involving people you care for. But it might be time to take a stand on a position you feel sure you can defend. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Treading water keeps you busy, but it wont get you where you need to go. Time to stop making excuses and to start moving ahead toward your goals. BORN THIS WEEK: You see life as both creative and pragmatic. You would not only be a fine artist, but also a successful one. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. THE DRY GRASS OF AUGUST By Anna Jean Mayhew Jubie Watts, the precocious 13-year-old narrator of The Dry Grass of August comes from a privileged white Southerners. When her family leaves their home in Charlotte, North Carolina with their black maid Mary Luther on a vacation throughout the South her eyes are opened to the reality of 1950s racism. Traveling by car their housekeeper endures hardship and humiliation when motels and restaurants refuse to admit her and when she is allowed to use outhouses, but not public bathrooms. The trip is an eye-opener in more than one way because Jubie soon realizes that her dysfunctional family is beginning to unravel and that its held together only by the tenacity of their loyal servant Mary. At relatives homes Mary cooks, cleans and cares for the four Watts children without complaint. That she is an exceptional woman is apparent to Jubie, the only one in her family to see the black womans value. In Andalusia, Alabama the family passes a grill with colored people in the doorway before stopping at a Whites Only restaurant. Mary announces that she will walk back to the grill. Jubie watches her prepare: Mary got her flowered bag from the trunk and took out a rose knit Id never seen before. In quick strokes she put on glossy lipstick, and then reached into her bag for red earrings and a matching necklace. With her handbag dangling from her fingertips she started down the street. Here is a book that has it alla compelling story that draws you in from the first page, a broad examination of family dynamics and racial conflict set against a backdrop of historical events. The social extremes of human behavior create unsettling intensity throughout that leads to a sad but somewhat predictable ending. More than a coming-of-age tale or a look at civil rights issues of the s, Mayhews debut novel is a simple but engrossing story about people who seem all too real and who make us care about them. Highly recommended.

Let your pantry serve as your starting point for creating memorable meals the family will love.Proper Pantry PracticesBefore letting those creative culinary juices flow, take inventory of your pantry. If you find items that are too old, that have never been touched, or that you hardly ever use get rid of them. Look closely at the ingredient list to decide which items to keep. Get rid of items filled with corn syrup and artificial sweeteners and colors. Foods with fewer ingredients and pronounce able words tend to be more natural or whole. Made from four ingredients, Kikkomans Soy Sauce is brewed naturally, using a traditional process that goes back hundreds of years. Other keepers include honey, canned beans, whole grain pastas or rice, raw nuts and olive oil. Once your pantry is in order, you can incorporate these healthy staples into meals using the freshest vegetables, poultry, fish and beef. By keeping your pantry stocked with the most whole some ingredients, you can be sure you are giving the very best to your family.

Each organization was moved by the plight of our less-fortunate contemporaries and generously agreed to donate a check from each treasury. Andrea continued to spread the word, with the assistance of Nancy Grabowski. Bunco players and Mah Jongg players agreed to pitch in. Individuals contributed. Like a snowball rolling downhill, the collection began to grow and grow. There were a few, admittedly, who thought these efforts wouldnt make a difference. They were proved wrong when the final tally was complete, this small circle of friends raised $660, which was be presented on Thursday, May 23. Stroh accepted the donation in the multi-purpose room at the Senior Services building, and told the people attending that some cuts still might have to be made. The story doesnt end here. More help is needed. Contributions can be mailed directly to: Marion Senior Services, 1101 SW 20th Court, Ocala FL 34471. You can also call Nancy Grabowski at 873-4315 for more information. Editors Note: Senior Services has announced that it will close for meals two days in June to save funds.

This Ocala Outdoor Sculpture Competition PLEASESEECONTEST PAGE3 BY JIM CLARK Editor A crowd dominated by a large number of veterans gathered Sunday afternoon at the Appleton Museums theater to watch a movie about the Honor Flight program. Ocalas final Honor Flight was last week, during which a number of World War II veterans traveled to Washington, D.C., for a day of visiting the memorials dedicated to them and their comrades. It was a day for memories for the vets, most of whom are in their 80s and 90s. The ceremony and accompanying movie on Sunday brought back some of those memories. The movie tells the story of four men from the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area who made the trip from there, and also describes how that area organized the flights. It was a touching one hour, 20-minute show which was narrated in part by the men themselves. It described their trip and showed highlights of their visit to D.C. Before the showing of the movie, there was a short program. Mary Ellen Poe, CEO of Hospice of Marion County, welcomed the visitors who nearly filled the facility. Students Loyd Adams IV and Kinley Nichols led the Pledge of Allegiance. Trey Adams, Honor Flight coordinator/hub director, and community relations director for Emeritus East, gave the introduction. Robin and the Giant of WOCA played and led the National Anthem, and also sang a song about the Honor Flight. A Veterans Pinning Ceremony was held to honor Jim Hilty Sr., financial adviser, Edward Jones Investments. Adams then introduced the film, and the crowd settled back to watch. The film can be purchased from Amazon.com Honor Flight movie gets local screening PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKAbove, left, Loyd Adams IV and Kinley Nichols leave the stage after leading the Pledge of Allegiance. At right, Clarise Walker performs the pinning ceremony on Jim Hilty Sr. as Doug Hamilton looks on. More photos on Page 23. Film chronicles efforts of volunteers to build program from scratch in Midwest Special to the Citizen On Sunday, May 12, Mothers Day, Andrea Flannery was relaxing with a newspaper when an article on Senior Services caught her eye. This article was asking for help to close a budgetary gap which would impact Meals on Wheels, respite care givers, and the daily communal dining program. Sarah Stroh, director of Marion Senior Services, said that if a fraction of our county each gave a single dollar, the gap would be bridged. The gap was caused by the federal governments sequester. That article galvanized Andrea, a warm-hearted, caring former nurse, into action. She called the article to the attention of her friends who responded swiftly. Individuals, small social groups, and organized clubs within On Top of the World banded together. On Monday, May 13, the mens PHOTO BY JIM CLARKSarah Stroh, left, of Marion Senior Services, receives $660 from Andrea Flannery of On Top of the World. Looking on in back is Nancy Grabowski. golfing groups were told the story by Archie Pollard and Bill Flannery. The men agreed to chip in a few dollars each day. By the end of the week, they had collected $222.

From mid-September until the end of April we tee off at 9 a.m. and then go out to lunch. We enjoy golf and have a fun time playing at it. Why not come out and play with us? If you are a senior lady and live in the area of Southwest State Raod 200, and would enjoy a quick morning round of golf, why not call for more information? We have members from Palm Cay, Oak Run, Spruce Creek Preserve, Marion Landing and Top of the World. For more information call Joyce Edgerton at 352-237-3774.

Additionally, the 10 sculptors whose work is chosen each will receive a $1,000 honoraria for transportation expenses to bring their art to Ocala. This Ocala Outdoor Sculpture Competition PLEASESEECONTEST, PAGE3 BY JIM CLARK EditorA crowd dominated by a large number of veterans gathered Sunday afternoon at the Appleton Museums theater to watch a movie about the Honor Flight program. Ocalas final Honor Flight was last week, during which a number of World War II veterans traveled to Washington, D.C., for a day of visiting the memorials dedicated to them and their comrades. It was a day for memories for the vets, most of whom are in their 80s and 90s. The ceremony and accompanying movie on Sunday brought back some of those memories. The movie tells the story of four men from the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area who made the trip from there, and also describes how that area organized the flights. It was a touching one hour, 20-minute show which was narrated in part by the men themselves. It described their trip and showed highlights of their visit to D.C. Before the showing of the movie, there was a short program. Mary Ellen Poe, CEO of Hospice of Marion County, welcomed the visitors who nearly filled the facility. Students Loyd Adams IV and Kinley Nichols led the Pledge of Allegiance. Trey Adams, Honor Flight coordinator/hub director, and community relations director for Emeritus East, gave the introduction. Robin and the Giant of WOCA played and led the National Anthem, and also sang a song about the Honor Flight. A Veterans Pinning Ceremony was held to honor Jim Hilty Sr., financial adviser, Edward Jones Investments. Adams then introduced the film, and the crowd settled back to watch. The film can be purchased from Amazon.com Honor Flight movie gets local screening PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKAbove, left, Loyd Adams IV and Kinley Nichols leave the stage after leading the Pledge of Allegiance.

Film chronicles efforts of volunteers to build program from scratch in Midwest Special to the CitizenOn Sunday, May 12, Mothers Day, Andrea Flannery was relaxing with a newspaper when an article on Senior Services caught her eye. This article was asking for help to close a budgetary gap which would impact Meals on Wheels, respite care givers, and the daily communal dining program. Sarah Stroh, director of Marion Senior Services, said that if a fraction of our county each gave a single dollar, the gap would be bridged. The gap was caused by the federal governments sequester. That article galvanized Andrea, a warm-hearted, caring former nurse, into action. She called the article to the attention of her friends who responded swiftly. Individuals, small social groups, and organized clubs within On Top of the World banded together. On Monday, May 13, the mens PHOTO BY JIM CLARKSarah Stroh, left, of Marion Senior Services, receives $660 from Andrea Flannery of On Top of the World. Looking on in back is Nancy Grabowski. golfing groups were told the story by Archie Pollard and Bill Flannery. The men agreed to chip in a few dollars each day. By the end of the week, they had collected $222.

Each organization was moved by the plight of our less-fortunate contemporaries and generously agreed to donate a check from each treasury. Andrea continued to spread the word, with the assistance of Nancy Grabowski. Bunco players and Mah Jongg players agreed to pitch in. Individuals contributed. Like a snowball rolling downhill, the collection began to grow and grow. There were a few, admittedly, who thought these efforts wouldnt make a difference. They were proved wrong when the final tally was complete, this small circle of friends raised $660, which was be presented on Thursday, May 23. Stroh accepted the donation in the multi-purpose room at the Senior Services building, and told the people attending that some cuts still might have to be made. The story doesnt end here. More help is needed. Contributions can be mailed directly to: Marion Senior Services, 1101 SW 20th Court, Ocala FL 34471. You can also call Nancy Grabowski at 873-4315 for more information.Editors Note: Senior Services has announced that it will close for meals two days in June to save funds.

Let your pantry serve as your starting point for creating memorable meals the family will love.Proper Pantry PracticesBefore letting those creative culinary juices flow, take inventory of your pantry. If you find items that are too old, that have never been touched, or that you hardly ever use get rid of them. Look closely at the ingredient list to decide which items to keep. Get rid of items filled with corn syrup and artificial sweeteners and colors. Foods with fewer ingredients and pronounce able words tend to be more natural or whole. Made from four ingredients, Kikkomans Soy Sauce is brewed naturally, using a traditional process that goes back hundreds of years. Other keepers include honey, canned beans, whole grain pastas or rice, raw nuts and olive oil. Once your pantry is in order, you can incorporate these healthy staples into meals using the freshest vegetables, poultry, fish and beef. By keeping your pantry stocked with the most whole some ingredients, you can be sure you are giving the very best to your family. For additional recipes and informa tion, visit www.kikkomanUSA.com.Natural,Quality Ingredients MaketheMeal Brining 101What exactly is brining? Much like a marinade, meat and poultry is soaked in flavorful liquid, such as an all-purpose seasoning like Kikkoman Soy Sauce.

Friday, May 31, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, May 31, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) An apparent act of injustice might turn out to be either an error in judgment or just plain stupidity. So calm down and cool off, and let the explanations roll out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its upsetting when someone you trusted might have failed you. But with new opportunities ahead, youll soon be too busy to feel even a wee bit sorry for yourself. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A sense of uncertainty could be a good reason to change your position on an important matter. Someone close might try to talk you out of it, but its your decision to make. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Being too zealous in pursuing your goal could create some resistance. Try to be more mindful of what you ask people to do, and theyll be more likely to do it. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Things change as you go from being ignored to being Lionized once again. This is a good time to reintroduce those previously rejected ideas to a more receptive audience. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Someone new in your life creates both anticipation as well as anxiety. Avoid the potential for misunderstandings by watching what you say and how you say it. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Watch your budget so that you dont overspend now and have less to invest when the time is right later on. Arrange to share your weekend with someone special. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) The temptation to involve yourself in a friends or family members personal problems is laudable. But get the facts before you make a firm commitment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might be upset by some of your critics. But most of your associates continue to keep the faith in your ability to get the job done, and done well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Youve reached an important point in your ongoing pursuit of your goals. You might now want to consider letting someone you trust join you on your journey. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youve been going through a spate of uncertainty involving people you care for. But it might be time to take a stand on a position you feel sure you can defend. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Treading water keeps you busy, but it wont get you where you need to go. Time to stop making excuses and to start moving ahead toward your goals. BORN THIS WEEK: You see life as both creative and pragmatic. You would not only be a fine artist, but also a successful one. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. THE DRY GRASS OF AUGUST By Anna Jean Mayhew Jubie Watts, the precocious 13-year-old narrator of The Dry Grass of August comes from a privileged white Southerners. When her family leaves their home in Charlotte, North Carolina with their black maid Mary Luther on a vacation throughout the South her eyes are opened to the reality of 1950s racism. Traveling by car their housekeeper endures hardship and humiliation when motels and restaurants refuse to admit her and when she is allowed to use outhouses, but not public bathrooms. The trip is an eye-opener in more than one way because Jubie soon realizes that her dysfunctional family is beginning to unravel and that its held together only by the tenacity of their loyal servant Mary. At relatives homes Mary cooks, cleans and cares for the four Watts children without complaint. That she is an exceptional woman is apparent to Jubie, the only one in her family to see the black womans value. In Andalusia, Alabama the family passes a grill with colored people in the doorway before stopping at a Whites Only restaurant. Mary announces that she will walk back to the grill. Jubie watches her prepare: Mary got her flowered bag from the trunk and took out a rose knit Id never seen before. In quick strokes she put on glossy lipstick, and then reached into her bag for red earrings and a matching necklace. With her handbag dangling from her fingertips she started down the street. Here is a book that has it alla compelling story that draws you in from the first page, a broad examination of family dynamics and racial conflict set against a backdrop of historical events. The social extremes of human behavior create unsettling intensity throughout that leads to a sad but somewhat predictable ending. More than a coming-of-age tale or a look at civil rights issues of the s, Mayhews debut novel is a simple but engrossing story about people who seem all too real and who make us care about them. Highly recommended.

Throughout life, reading is not just fundamental. Its critical. Proficient readers can master just about anything. Sadly, children without words are seriously handicapped and may carry that burden for a lifetime, unless they are introduced to the power of reading. Recently released results of the FCAT third-grade reading scores for Marion County were about the same as last year. Fifty-one percent of Marion third graders scored as proficient readers. An encouraging column adjacent to the third-grade report was an article about the love-ofreading recognition ceremony for fifth graders at Greenway Elementary School. The headline was: Schools try to avoid students taking vacation from reading. Studies indicate that students who dont read during vacation may fall as much as three months behind in spelling andFriday, May 31, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVER TISING www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 31, 2013 This is a yearly column, updated with latest information.This is a big month for many young people in Marion County, as they leave high school and move on to the next phase of their lives. Graduation ceremonies are scheduled for local high schools, a landmark day for a few hundred young adults who are ready to venture out into the world. This graduating class has been through a little more than many of us. These young people were firstgraders on Sept. 11, 2001, when two planes smashed into the World Trade Center in New York, one hit the Pentagon and another crashed in Pennsylvania, changing the face of America forever. They are venturing into an uncertain world, one filled with fear of terrorism, one filled with eroding freedoms in the name of security. Those of us who have lived through many years of strife and conflict and many years of prosperity and peace, can give some words of advice to the young graduates. Whether they pay attention is up to them, and whether they agree is also up to them. But at least its a point of view that they can use to steer them in whatever direction they want to go. With just a few changes from the previous years columns, here we go: 1. If you have a chance to continue your education, by all means do so. In this era, it is almost impossible to advance yourself in the job market without some sort of post-secondary education. It can be college, junior college, trade school or specialized classes, but make sure you learn as much as you can. Youve made it through one important period youve got your high school diploma. Now look to see what else you can do to learn. Your brains are still relatively young you have a better capacity to learn than many of us old dogs, who find it hard to learn new tricks. 2. If you go to college, learn the difference between opinion and fact from your professors. The good ones will make it clear for you but there are some who will ram their thoughts down your throat, without making it clear that its what they think, not what the world accepts as truth. 3. If you havent already, develop a good work ethic. When it comes to studying and school assignments, the days of someone looking over your shoulder to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to are over. Youre on your own. Your education, or your job, are what you make it. Take a look at employment ads in almost every major field. Theyll say things like self-starter or must work well without supervision. Managers in the business world dont want to have to watch every step that you do. Learn to work by yourself with maximum effort. Remember, the world doesnt owe you a living you have to go out and make your own mark. 4. Choose your friends wisely. Hang around with people who have good goals, who want to make a decent mark in this world. There was a great commercial on TV (I cant remember what product it was for) where one guy in a group of wild young people gets a suit-and-tie job, so the others always want him to buy dinner, because they arent doing a thing. You will undoubtedly encounter some of these people steer clear and be your own person. Some years later, these will be the folks who will come to you begging for a job. 5. Stay active. There will come a time in your life when you cant exercise like you used to, but that day isnt here yet for most of you. Im afraid that we are producing a generation of computer-chair potatoes (as opposed to couch potatoes), those who do nothing but sit in front of a computer screen or play with a phone or tablet for all their free time. Get out and do something. You can walk, you can run, you can play a sport, you can swim just do something. Its good for your mind and your body. 6. Along that same line, learn how to talk to people, face to face. There is entirely too much Facebook, Tweeting, and other social networking going on, but sometimes young people have to talk to someone in person and they dont know what to say, or how to behave. Get off the phone and the computer and speak to people. Someday when youre interviewing for a job, it wont be on Facebook. But someday during that same job interview, your potential boss is going to ask permission to look at your Facebook postings, and all that cute little stuff and foul language that some of you might use will come back to haunt you. 7. Volunteer in the community. There are all sorts of things that need doing. Some involve some physical work, others involve using your brains to help people. Give something back to the community show that you care. You never know someday you may be one of the people who needs help, and maybe there will be folks around who will recall what you did for others, and youll get some help in return. And dont do it for the glory and the recognition. The best volunteers are those who work behind the scenes, who get nothing out of it but personal satisfaction. 8. Finally, keep the faith, and not just religious faith. If you are a religious person, you will be tested. Most of those who are religious find great solace in that faith, so dont let yourself get tempted away from it. But there is another kind of faith, faith in your fellow human beings, faith in the country. Be aware of the times you live in, for sure, but realize there are so many places in the world that are worse off than we are. While we live in the fear that there could be another attack on us somewhere in the U.S., there are people who live with the very real fear of being blown up every day. While we have medical care available to us when we get sick, there are people who succumb to the least little illness because their bodies cant fight diseases, or they have no access to things as simple as an aspirin. As you depart from high school, thank your teachers, your counselors, your school employees. They surely dont get rich doing what they do, but almost all of them love their profession. Someday you will realize how good the days of high school were. But for now, youve reached your goal of getting your diploma, which is a job well done.

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or The common lament among the ranks of our nations disabled veterans filing for service-connected disability compensation from the VA is, Delay, deny, wait till I die. As a candidate for the presidency, President Obama pledged to revamp the Veterans Affairs (VA) claims process. When General Eric Shinseki, a former Army Chief of Staff and highly respected combat wounded veteran, was appointed as the VA Secretary in 2009, he promised to end the claims backlog in two years. The promises of President Obama and Secretary Shinseki raised the hopes of veterans that the claims backlog would finally be eliminated. Instead, the backlog has gotten intolerably worse. Internal VA documents obtained by the Center for Investigative Reporting reveal the agencys claims process has virtually collapsed. The number of claimants waiting more than a year for their benefits has exploded from 11,000 in 2009 to 245,000 in December 2012 an increase of more than 2,000 percent. Particularly troubling is that the number of veterans dying before their claims were approved has skyrocketed. Between 2009 and 2012, the number of deceased veterans receiving approval too late for the compensation to help them while they were alive jumped from 6,400 to 19,500. Three factors in particular have contributed to the VAs inability to fulfill the promises of President Obama and Secretary Shinseki. Foremost is the VAs antiquated processing system. After spending more than half a billion dollars on a new computer system the past four years, 97 percent of all claims inexplicably remain on paper. The paper-laden claims process is further compounded by a points system that gives performance bonuses to workers for sending letters to veterans but not for spending extra time reading a claims file. Despite the VA publicly reporting it has hired 3,300 additional personnel since 2010, staffing at the VAs 58 regional offices only increased by fewer than 300 people due to turnover and the loss of more than 2,000 workers temporarily paid through stimulus funds. Lastly, with claims processors overwhelmed by an ever-burdensome workload, processing errors have reached a crisis state and a sense of helpless resignation has made the disability compensation claims of veterans secondary to struggling through another workday. Second only to the Department of Defense in size, the VA is saddled by a cumbersome bureaucracy, indurate procedures and inadequate staffing. As such, while the federal government has deemed some private corporations too big to fail, the VAs intolerable claims record argues it may be too big to be fixed. If the VA claims process is ever going to be fixed, it must be revamped and sufficiently resourced. Furthermore, the VA leadership, from the Secretary on down, must be held strictly accountable for ending this intolerable situation once and for all. Our nations disabled veterans merit more than hollow promises. Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

It has now become part of my get-out-ofboring-situations arsenal. I was thinking about this the other day another good excuse popped into my head. Somebody invited me to come and play softball. At the time, they caught me off guard and I was trying to wiggle out of such an invitation. Then it dawned on me. I am sorry, I would like to but my health insurance does not cover that kind of activity. Whether my health insurance would cover that, I have no idea, but neither does anybody else, only my doctor knows for sure. While I was pondering this, I was reminded of a word from the Proverbs. Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain (Proverbs 25:14 KJV). Whoever boasts to others about their physical prowess is only fooling himself.The Rev. James L.

comprehension. Now theres the rub. Interest and incentive need to be generated within the home. My wifes parents and mine finished schooling at eighth grade. Her parents grew up in farm and factory country; mine in a big city. With optimism, they sent us to public schools during the worst years of the great depression and the hard times of World War II. Our parents read the daily papers, and challenged themselves with word puzzles. They also read paperback novels and hard cover books from their modest public libraries. Our reading habits were pre-K stimulated by parental powers of example. There are some little-known secrets in early reading proficiency. While we are all prisoners of the genes we inherited, there is evidence that intelligence is not necessarily limited by our birth certificates. Research indicates that West Indian African-Americans, Asian-Americans, and Jewish Americans tend to get more out of U.S. education than other ethnic groups because of student diligence and cultural encouragement within their families. As we were writing this article, we read a newspaper report of encouraging comments to the Public Policy Institute of Marion County by David Lawrence, former publisher of the Miami Herald and education activist. His concern is that so many children in Marion County are in poor shape as to their reading proficiency. Mr. Lawrences bulls-eye suggestion is that improving the quality of parenting and childrens environment may be more important than focusing on improvements in teaching quality. President Obama, the state of Florida, advocacy groups, and some education scholars are committed to universal pre-kindergarten education to help all children attain reading proficiency. Sounds like a right thing to do. However, were skeptical about another federal education initiative. The No Child Left Behind Program, intended to close the gaps between racial and ethnic groups, was unsuccessful. After 10 years and billions of dollars, that federal flagship program for disadvantaged students failed many children who were behind when the program was initiated in 2001. Our reservation is that universal preK could develop into another government program which may excuse rather than encourage family commitments to bettering childrens academic growth. In education matters, government is too often a creator of expensive unintended consequences.

West Marion Moose Lodge activities BY JEAN DIPIERO Special to the CitizenOn Sunday, May 26, the Indigo East community held its Memorial Day Pot Luck dinner. There was a great turnout. Before the dinner bell rang, Fred Masone told about the history of Memorial Day and asked for a moment of silence for our fallen service men and women. There was a delectable buffet to choose from. The neighbors really went all out. The menu included pulled pork, chicken parmigiana, eggplant parmigiana, fried chicken, meatballs, sausage with peppers, beef stew, different types of pasta salads, potato salad, several varieties of casseroles, bean salad, deviled eggs and much more. The desserts were awesome too. There were different pies, cakes and cupcakes. Everything was delicious. The tables were decorated with red/white/ blue tablecloths along with red/white/blue flowers as the centerpiece on each table. There was a 50/50 raffle as well. Special thanks to the following people who planned and organized this event: Mary Lou, Fred and Freddy Jr. Masone, Harold and Cathy Brouillard, Marcia Connolly, Cookie and Gordon Daniels, Mary Pat Giffin, Prudence Goodman, Sarah Logue, Dick and Paula Lord and Mary Walters.

PHOTOS BY FRANK DIPIERO On this day in 1879 the first electric railway opened at the Berlin Trades Exposition and in 1891 work on trans-Siberian railway began. Here in the United States railroad expansion occurred as the West was opened. Railroad agents told the Navajo, The coming of the Iron Horse will bring great prosperity to the Redman. But the Indians had reservations. The western railroads were fairly primitive. Being in business to make money, the railroad operators tried to increase revenue on each trip by carrying more people wanting to move to the West. They restricted passengers to be under a certain weight, in order to fit three people in a seat instead of only two. Not only was this extremely uncomfortable for the travelers, but it became obvious to those wishing to relocate that if this policy continued there would be no West for the reary. Todays world is not much different.The Big AppleA Long Island railroad train was moving along at its usual five-mile-an-hour clip when it stopped suddenly. A passenger asked the conductor, Why are we stopped? The conductor said, Theres a big turtle on the track. The passenger said, We stopped for a turtle ten minutes ago. The conductor said, I know, but we caught up with it again! Middle U.S.The train was about to pull out of the station. A young man managed to reach the train, throw his briefcase onto the cars steps, and climb aboard, gasping for air. Looking at him, another rider said, Young man, you should be in better shape. At your age, I could catch the train by a gnats whisker and still be fresh. Look at you, panting away. The young man took a deep breath and said, Pop, I missed this train at the last station.One lump or two?Poland still has a number of steam locomotives. One of them was running low on coal at night. The engineer said to his fireman, Were coming to a town, lets stop and send the porter out to get more coal. Can you see the name of the town on the depot sign? The fireman replied, It appears to be Danzig in the dark. The engineer shouted, Buy coal, Porter!Crime tracksDuring the war a soldier had been lashed to the train tracks and run over. The police quickly investigated the incident. At the ensuing press conference the police chief was asked if this were part of a foreign plot. No, said the chief, We believe there was a locomotive.Short linesAmtrak is very precise. If you call up and ask what time the noon train gets to California, the agent will tell you, Eight p.m.-give or take a few days. A railroad engineer must be sure not to lose his train of thought, or he might go down the wrong track. A fired newspaper editor took an express train out of town. Traveling by train is safer than flying. You dont have to worry about the conductor sitting on the engineers lap. The railroad brakeman hid his whiskey in the Cabooze. The boy who did a project on trains had to keep track of everything. The trainman who stepped on a live 3rd rail was a conductor. The railway had a safety problem, but tried to cover its tracks. You can be on the right track and still get hit by a train. One day the kleptomaniac decided to take the five o-clock train. But the authorities made him give it back. A train load of paint derailed. Nearby businesses were put in the red. A man said to the ticket agent, Id better take the Amtrak to Cleveland. The ticket agent said, I wish you would. Were sick of it here! SleeperA man and a woman who had never met were accidentally put in the same sleeping compartment of a train. After the initial embarrassment both went to sleep, the woman on the top bunk, the man on the lower. In the middle of the night the woman leaned over and said, Im sorry to bother you but Im awfully cold and I was wondering if you could possibly pass me another blanket. The man replied with a glint in his eye, Ive got a better idea. Lets pretend were married Why not, giggled the woman? Good, he replied, Get your own blanket!Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

thought only Victory. Admiral Chester Nimitz spoke about the Marines on Iwo Jima and said, Uncommon Valor was a common virtue. That could also be said of the vast majority of GIs who fought; bled and died on the battle fields around the world. Now those who had born the weight of those times were coming home from an unforgettable trip of recognition and gratitude. The plane was landing; the band was playing; fireworks were going off and like all of those around me, I was cheering and waving my American flag. As they came off the plane, it was obvious that the years had taken their toll on these veterans. Many of them disembarked into wheel chairs. Legs that had carried them from San Diego to Japan; and from New York to Berlin, could no longer support them. Eyes that once looked through periscopes; bomb sights; and gun sights now needed thick glasses to focus. Voices that once barked orders and sang lusty songs were now barely audible but in spite of this, there was something special about these veterans. When they saw us and heard our cheers, every one of them sat straighter in their wheelchairs or stood straighter as they walked. Smiles erased the wrinkles on their faces and waves from their weakened arms brought applause. It was as if they realized maybe for the first time just what they had done and more importantly, that a grateful nation remembered. Joining me for this moving experience were Betty and Larry Clarke; Dick Stroub; Sandra Brotherhood; Donna Moran; Elaine and John Rojek; Avis Millett; Holly Bello; Joe Gignac; Larry Lee; Dale Lunsford; Rich Hurley; Dick Francis; Rich and Beverly Idone; Bill Mahar; Trude Smith; Peggy Konar and Marguerite Fiorenza. As Will Rogers once said, We cant all be heroes; sometimes we have to just stand on the curb and cheer. From your reporterOn a personal note, a special thanks to a beautiful lady with a beautiful voice, Linda Jewell Schultz who provided photos for this article and sang America the Beautiful while sitting next to me.

Friday, May 31, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, May 31, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Sometimes it is best to err on the side of caution. This, however, has not always been my modus operandi down through the years. In fact, I am not very good when it comes to practicing anything, just ask the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. As of late, though, I have been practicing caution like I was going to Carnegie Hall. I am not very good at it yet, but my goal is to come to the point of perfection in the area of caution as it touches my person, particularly my health and well-being. This may be because I have reached that age when most men go through a midlife crisis. You can always tell when a man is going through his midlife crisis. He usually wants to prove he is as good at 60-something as he was when he was 20-something. Carelessly throwing caution to the wind, he attempts to do something beyond the energy of his existing body. One sure way to tell if a man is having a midlife crisis is to notice his recent injuries. Personally, when I was 20 I was not good at anything, which has enabled me to skip my midlife crisis. I am glad to be 60 (OK, maybe I am a tad over 60) because now when I get tired I can say I am tired and sit down. At 60-something I have absolutely nothing to prove. I am no better or worse than I was when I was 20. It is, as my wife notes, the ageless wonder of incompetency. The difficulty with growing older is that the old memory juices do not flow as swiftly as they once did. Of course, some of us never had a real gusher in that department anyway. The more memories I have, the less I am able to recall them in the innocency of their reality. Like the fisherman who tells the size of the one that got away. Memory seems to add or subtract according to the benefit of the person conjuring up the memory. A big problem a man in mid-life crisis has is that he does not remember how good he actually was when he was 20, unless of course, his wife knew him at that time. If he could, he would not have to try to replicate it when he is 60. This is one of the unique advantages of maturing. Forgetting always leads to exaggerating. Exaggerating at 60-something leads to injuries. The only purpose of this is to impress people who really are not being impressed. As we grow older things begin to change, and some things change for the better. When I was 20, I could not admit to anybody that I was tired. I would have been the laughing stock in my community if I would admit any such phenomena. You know what they say about the unlimited energy that young people have. Now that I am in my 60s, I can blame my advancing years on just about anything. I love to do that, but at my age I dont have the energy. This has covered a multitude of sins, for which I am so grateful. Of course, it does have one drawback, when someone in their 80s invites me to go for a walk, what in the world can you say to that? This next one has to be one of my favorites. I would love to do that but I have to get home for my afternoon nap. The person will look at me, notice my maturing features and understand that I desperately do need a nap, or something resembling beauty sleep. I found one the other week that has proved quite beneficial. I was invited to a function during the evening, which turned out to be a rather boring affair. Once the meal was over people were milling around engaged in small talk. Nothing bores me quicker than The many excuses of a man in midlife crisis Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder small talk. Not knowing what to do, I pondered the situation for sometime. Then, like lightning from the heavens, I was struck with a brilliant idea. I went up to my host and said, Im sorry, but it is getting near my bedtime and I have strict orders from my doctor to go to bed early. Youll have to excuse me. It worked like a charm. Everybody understood that a person of my age needs to go to bed early. I do not know who thought this up, probably Benjamin Franklin, but whoever it was, I owe them a steak dinPLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE20 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comA Memorial Day service, an opportunity to save a life, and sports are highlighted in this weeks OTOW Happenings.Lions ClubThe OTOW Lions club presented its annual Memorial Day service on May 27 in the ballroom of the Health and Recreation Building. The event was well-attended and proved to be a moving event that brought deserved honor to our nations fallen heroes. Incoming club president Richard Spahn gave a warm welcome to attendees and guests, followed by the invocation by Chaplain Robert Benson. Lion President Ralph Mills introduced honored guests and fellow Lions. The West Port High School R.O.T.C. presented the Colors, Lion President Ralph Mills lead the audience in the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, and Joan Stenson sang the National Anthem. The OTOW Concert Chorus then sang a medley of patriotic songs, followed by the playing of the theme song of each branch of the military service, with veterans in the audience standing as the theme song of the branch in which they served was heard. Lion Spahn introduced the guest speaker, Lt. Colonel Sharon Murry, USAF, Retired. Lt. Colonel Sharon Murry acknowledged the stirring words of President Bush and Abraham Lincoln that had been read by Lion Spahn, and after so doing, she went off-script, abandoning her prepared speech and proceeding to invite members of the audience to give information about someone dear to them who had given his or her life in the name of freedom. Without question, this was a very moving component of this Memorial Day Service, and I myself felt compelled to share my own story. My father, James Roy Hollyfield, was killed in action in 1951 during the Korean War. I was 5 years old at the time, and as I stated to those in the audience, I was taught that my father was a hero, and I added that he still is. Following Lt. Colonel Murrys address, Kenneth Colen and Lion President Ralph Mills presented the Memorial Wreath, followed by the playing of Taps. The West Port High School R.O.T.C. conducted the Retirement of the Colors, the OTOW Concert Chorus sang God Bless America, and Chaplain Robert Benson gave the benediction. The 2013 Memorial Day service brought honor to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice of life in service to our country to secure freedom both at home and abroad. They will never be forgotten.

The season started with the Cebert Wealth and Great Clips teams looking dismal and feeling they had no chance to move. Both teams struggled at the beginning of the season, but they started putting it together during the last two months. Both started putting wins together and inching up slowly but surely, while Tee Pee Tire, which had a strong team along the way, with the Overholser, started faltering and eventually headed towards the bottom of the standings. The Dr. Dunn team continued to hold on to second place, while the Wise Way team, which led most of the year, refused to give up the first place position. It took a while, but changes came. The Cebert Wealth and Great Clips Teams played so well during the last month that they edged past the Dr. Dunn Team. The last seven games of the season brought about a big change, as both the Cebert Wealth and Great Clips teams finally caught the Wise Way team and moved into a tie for first place. Now it was up to the last game of the year, with the Wise Way team only 1/2 game behind both the Great Clips and Cebert Wealth team. The Wise Way team won its final game, creating a three way tie for first place, along with Cebert Wealth and Great Clips. Now it was up to Cebert Wealth and Great Clips, either one winning their final game and ending up as the champs in the Winter League. Well, as fate would have it, both teams lost, and Wise Way returned to its first place position and became the Champs behind their manager, Jimmu Russo. It was a battle to the end, and it was a great season, as there was contention for top place throughout the year.

People from every walk of life; most carrying American Flags of various sizes, were milling around in a state of excitement. It was the same excitement felt at a sporting event only deeper; more intense; more emotional. Kingdom of the Sun Band tuned their instruments and adjusted their music. Occasionally they, like the crowd around them, would look skyward. After a tapping of the baton on the music stand, the band leader signaled his musicians. A moment later, the strains of God Bless America rang out and those in the stands began to sing along. On May 23 it was my privilege to join with a score of other Cherrywood residents in attending the arrival of the final Honor Flight project in Marion County. Marion County had the third largest contingent of World War II veterans in the country to take part in this program. First, let me explain what the Honor Flight project is exactly. This eight year long program was meant to allow every World War II veteran who was able to board a plane or bus, the opportunity to go to Washington D.C. and see the monument that stands there documenting the accomplishments and sacrifices they made to save the world. While the veterans themselves paid nothing, their escorts accompanying them paid full fare and all of their own expenses. This was a sacrifice of love on their part for the men and women of the war who are now in their eighties and nineties. During their tour of the WW II monument, many saw the names of places where they once fought; CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 names of places they liberated and battles that they fought. Their units were recognized from the Pacific and European Theaters of War. Vivid memories were brought back to them; both good and bad. For most, this was a once in a lifetime experience never to be forgotten. Now let me explain just a little bit of why this was the Greatest Generation. In their youth, they were children of the Great Depression. For many, there were no new clothes from department stores and no over flowing shopping carts from the grocery. Shoes were a once a year item if that and collecting pop bottles for spending money was common. Life was a hardship and survival before the time of modern antibiotics was not always assured. Yet, for the most part, survive they did, getting an education as best as possible from a system that taught the three Rs strictly and diligently. High school and college were luxuries reserved for those who didnt have to struggle with a hand to mouth existence. Politically, there were factors playing in this country that challenged young and old alike. The communist movement was taking hold due to difficult economic times. In Europe, Nazism was sweeping the continent; Fascism was in Italy and the militarists had taken hold in Japan. Wars and rumors of war as well as civil unrest were all around that generation. Then, on December 7, 1941, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor Hawaii plunging the United States into the Second World War. Germany followed by declaring war on the United States a few days later. In a matter of less than a week our nation was at war on two fronts across two oceans and our survival was far from sure. It was at that time and for the next five years that the Greatest Generation stepped up. Filling the ranks of the military was a major part of what the young men and a percentage of young women did to answer the call but everyone rolled up their sleeves and pitched in. Those too old to enter the military service worked twelve to sixteen hour days in the factories. Women who until that time had been treated almost as second class citizens were recruited and put to work building planes; tanks; ships; munitions and the million other items needed to supply a war effort. Children collected scrap iron; tires; pots and pans; aluminum and everything else that could be used to keep the hungry machines of industry working. At the same time, they along with their parents endured the rationing of everything from gasoline and tires to sugar and meat. In spite of these civilian sacrifices, it was the young men of the day who primarily bore the brunt of the hardships of war. In the skies over Europe the Eighth Air Force suffered horrendous losses as they flew their bombers usually unescorted by fighters, through the flak and enemy planes to drop their bombs on oil factories and other military targets. On the ground, young Americans would train and on June 6, 1944, they would invade Fortress Europe along the Normandy coast. During the invasion thousands of American GIs would die and America would learn the names of beaches like Omaha and Utah and towns like Vierville and Saint Mere Eglise. In the Pacific, huge naval battles would gain names like, Coral Sea; Midway and Philippine Sea. Islands that most Americans never new existed would cost the lives of thousands of Marines. Guadalcanal; Tarawa; Okinawa and Iwo Jima would be burned into the American psyche forever Western Union would become a global company bringing messages that no one wanted. Gold Star Mothers would form as an organization for those who had lost sons or daughters; the Disabled Veterans and Purple Heart Associations would gain members by the hundreds. This is only a brief glimpse as to what it was like to live through that time in history. Hardship; sacrifice; death; disabilities; and divided families were just a normal way of life. Through it all, there was one thought and one Honor Flight members.

Few of our groups enjoy the camaraderie of an evening of friendly competition and a social gathering on the patio following the game. Many players come out with their families who either root them on or just sit and enjoy friendly chat with their neighbors. If youve never been to a Bocce Ball night, you might want to come out and see for yourselves just how much fun it can be. Bring your own liquid refreshments and snacks if you like and learn a fun game with a fun crowd.Movie NightThrill to the newly released movie, Hitchcock CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 on June 4 at 7 p.m. in the clubhouse. The screen comes alive with the tale of Alfred Hitchcock and his wife Alma Reville as they endure personal intrigue while making the horror film classic, Psycho. Anthony Hopkins and Scarlett Johansson star in this drama playing the lead characters. There are some comic moments and some behind the scenes revelations that make the movie intriguing and compelling. Movie nights are free at Cherrywood so get your friends together and come on out for an evening of first run entertainment. Bring your own refreshments or enjoy the free pop corn and lemonade provided. Youll relax in the comfort of the friendly surroundings and have a great evening. Vet Appreciation DinnerMembers of the Cherrywood Veterans club will be honored on Saturday, July 6, with a special dinner and program. Tickets are going to be available at the meeting June 6 or from the office at a cost of just $3 for Veterans Club members and their spouses. Guests will be charged $7 per person. A special charcoal barbecue feast will be provided featuring chicken and ribs with two sides; rolls; gravy and sauces. Weve hired a private company to come to the clubhouse and cook especially for our veterans. Kenny Jackson will be providing the music to dance and listen to from 5 until 9 in the evening. For those of you who have been around Kenny before, you know his shows are top notch. Come out and enjoy a wonderful meal with your fellow veterans and the terrific entertainment of Kenny Jackson. Dinner served between 5 and 5:30. Indy 500Our avid racing fans enjoyed the Indianapolis 500 in the cool comfort of the clubhouse watching the big screen and cheering on their favorites. The competition was fierce with the lead changing an amazing 68 times during the race. Finally, Tony Kanaan pulled across the finish line under the yellow caution light. A good time was had by all and the Wounded Warrior Project benefited from the proceeds of this event. Thanks to the Social Committee and Fred OHern for their hard work in providing our residents with a great time. Hot Summer NightsWhat could be better than an informal dance party poolside at Cherrywood? On June 22 from 7 until 10 p.m. out on the patio and around the pool, guests will gather to enjoy fresh pizza and soft music. For only $4 per ticket, youll have a great time with friends and neighbors as you sway to the music of Rich Becotte and are cooled down for the day by soft summer breezes. You are welcome to bring the beverages you would like but please remember that no glass containers are allowed in the pool area so please stick with plastic or paper. Geri has the tickets on sale at this time so be sure to see her in the office and reserve your place at this fun party. Trivia nightYours truly will be the quiz master on June 19 at 7 p.m. in the clubhouse. Bring your refreshments of choice and come out and try to out smart me on questions about holidays; the Indy 500 and other assorted totally useless information. We always have a good time and it only costs a buck to play. We divide into teams of three or four people and pass out an answer sheet. Each team then watches the big screen for the questions, jotting down the best of the multiple choice answers. If youve been to Trivia you know how much fun it is and if you havent, youre missing an inexpensive evening of entertainment and knowledge. So pack up your friends and neighbors; your favorite refreshment and join us. Proceeds from our game go to the Wounded Warrior Fund so youll be having a good time and helping a very worthy cause also. I hope you see a record turn out for my first ever performance as your quiz master.100 Days of Summer FestDont miss the first in the series of parties called the Days of Summer Fest on June 10.

The practice drill included a mock hurricane and two simulated tornados. The EOC is designed to put responsible people in a position where they can respond to emergency situations quickly and effectively. Along with law enforcement and other first responders, power companies; communications experts; public affairs personnel; and scores of other agencies and qualified emergency managers are on hand to deal with any situation that might arise. During the drill, Don Messenger and Dave Seigel were tasked with trying to overload the communications system with bogus calls. By so doing, the telephone, radio and short wave capabilities of the EOC could be tested.

Few of our groups enjoy the camaraderie of an evening of friendly competition and a social gathering on the patio following the game. Many players come out with their families who either root them on or just sit and enjoy friendly chat with their neighbors. If youve never been to a Bocce Ball night, you might want to come out and see for yourselves just how much fun it can be. Bring your own liquid refreshments and snacks if you like and learn a fun game with a fun crowd.Movie NightThrill to the newly released movie, Hitchcock CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 on June 4 at 7 p.m. in the clubhouse. The screen comes alive with the tale of Alfred Hitchcock and his wife Alma Reville as they endure personal intrigue while making the horror film classic, Psycho. Anthony Hopkins and Scarlett Johansson star in this drama playing the lead characters. There are some comic moments and some behind the scenes revelations that make the movie intriguing and compelling. Movie nights are free at Cherrywood so get your friends together and come on out for an evening of first run entertainment. Bring your own refreshments or enjoy the free pop corn and lemonade provided. Youll relax in the comfort of the friendly surroundings and have a great evening. Vet Appreciation DinnerMembers of the Cherrywood Veterans club will be honored on Saturday, July 6, with a special dinner and program. Tickets are going to be available at the meeting June 6 or from the office at a cost of just $3 for Veterans Club members and their spouses. Guests will be charged $7 per person. A special charcoal barbecue feast will be provided featuring chicken and ribs with two sides; rolls; gravy and sauces. Weve hired a private company to come to the clubhouse and cook especially for our veterans. Kenny Jackson will be providing the music to dance and listen to from 5 until 9 in the evening. For those of you who have been around Kenny before, you know his shows are top notch. Come out and enjoy a wonderful meal with your fellow veterans and the terrific entertainment of Kenny Jackson. Dinner served between 5 and 5:30. Indy 500Our avid racing fans enjoyed the Indianapolis 500 in the cool comfort of the clubhouse watching the big screen and cheering on their favorites. The competition was fierce with the lead changing an amazing 68 times during the race. Finally, Tony Kanaan pulled across the finish line under the yellow caution light. A good time was had by all and the Wounded Warrior Project benefited from the proceeds of this event. Thanks to the Social Committee and Fred OHern for their hard work in providing our residents with a great time. Hot Summer NightsWhat could be better than an informal dance party poolside at Cherrywood? On June 22 from 7 until 10 p.m. out on the patio and around the pool, guests will gather to enjoy fresh pizza and soft music. For only $4 per ticket, youll have a great time with friends and neighbors as you sway to the music of Rich Becotte and are cooled down for the day by soft summer breezes. You are welcome to bring the beverages you would like but please remember that no glass containers are allowed in the pool area so please stick with plastic or paper. Geri has the tickets on sale at this time so be sure to see her in the office and reserve your place at this fun party. Trivia nightYours truly will be the quiz master on June 19 at 7 p.m. in the clubhouse. Bring your refreshments of choice and come out and try to out smart me on questions about holidays; the Indy 500 and other assorted totally useless information. We always have a good time and it only costs a buck to play. We divide into teams of three or four people and pass out an answer sheet. Each team then watches the big screen for the questions, jotting down the best of the multiple choice answers. If youve been to Trivia you know how much fun it is and if you havent, youre missing an inexpensive evening of entertainment and knowledge. So pack up your friends and neighbors; your favorite refreshment and join us. Proceeds from our game go to the Wounded Warrior Fund so youll be having a good time and helping a very worthy cause also. I hope you see a record turn out for my first ever performance as your quiz master.100 Days of Summer FestDont miss the first in the series of parties called the Days of Summer Fest on June 10.

It was the same excitement felt at a sporting event only deeper; more intense; more emotional. Kingdom of the Sun Band tuned their instruments and adjusted their music. Occasionally they, like the crowd around them, would look skyward. After a tapping of the baton on the music stand, the band leader signaled his musicians. A moment later, the strains of God Bless America rang out and those in the stands began to sing along. On May 23 it was my privilege to join with a score of other Cherrywood residents in attending the arrival of the final Honor Flight project in Marion County. Marion County had the third largest contingent of World War II veterans in the country to take part in this program. First, let me explain what the Honor Flight project is exactly. This eight year long program was meant to allow every World War II veteran who was able to board a plane or bus, the opportunity to go to Washington D.C. and see the monument that stands there documenting the accomplishments and sacrifices they made to save the world. While the veterans themselves paid nothing, their escorts accompanying them paid full fare and all of their own expenses. This was a sacrifice of love on their part for the men and women of the war who are now in their eighties and nineties. During their tour of the WW II monument, many saw the names of places where they once fought; CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 names of places they liberated and battles that they fought. Their units were recognized from the Pacific and European Theaters of War. Vivid memories were brought back to them; both good and bad. For most, this was a once in a lifetime experience never to be forgotten. Now let me explain just a little bit of why this was the Greatest Generation. In their youth, they were children of the Great Depression. For many, there were no new clothes from department stores and no over flowing shopping carts from the grocery. Shoes were a once a year item if that and collecting pop bottles for spending money was common. Life was a hardship and survival before the time of modern antibiotics was not always assured. Yet, for the most part, survive they did, getting an education as best as possible from a system that taught the three Rs strictly and diligently. High school and college were luxuries reserved for those who didnt have to struggle with a hand to mouth existence. Politically, there were factors playing in this country that challenged young and old alike. The communist movement was taking hold due to difficult economic times. In Europe, Nazism was sweeping the continent; Fascism was in Italy and the militarists had taken hold in Japan. Wars and rumors of war as well as civil unrest were all around that generation. Then, on December 7, 1941, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor Hawaii plunging the United States into the Second World War. Germany followed by declaring war on the United States a few days later. In a matter of less than a week our nation was at war on two fronts across two oceans and our survival was far from sure. It was at that time and for the next five years that the Greatest Generation stepped up. Filling the ranks of the military was a major part of what the young men and a percentage of young women did to answer the call but everyone rolled up their sleeves and pitched in. Those too old to enter the military service worked twelve to sixteen hour days in the factories. Women who until that time had been treated almost as second class citizens were recruited and put to work building planes; tanks; ships; munitions and the million other items needed to supply a war effort. Children collected scrap iron; tires; pots and pans; aluminum and everything else that could be used to keep the hungry machines of industry working. At the same time, they along with their parents endured the rationing of everything from gasoline and tires to sugar and meat. In spite of these civilian sacrifices, it was the young men of the day who primarily bore the brunt of the hardships of war. In the skies over Europe the Eighth Air Force suffered horrendous losses as they flew their bombers usually unescorted by fighters, through the flak and enemy planes to drop their bombs on oil factories and other military targets. On the ground, young Americans would train and on June 6, 1944, they would invade Fortress Europe along the Normandy coast. During the invasion thousands of American GIs would die and America would learn the names of beaches like Omaha and Utah and towns like Vierville and Saint Mere Eglise. In the Pacific, huge naval battles would gain names like, Coral Sea; Midway and Philippine Sea. Islands that most Americans never new existed would cost the lives of thousands of Marines. Guadalcanal; Tarawa; Okinawa and Iwo Jima would be burned into the American psyche forever Western Union would become a global company bringing messages that no one wanted. Gold Star Mothers would form as an organization for those who had lost sons or daughters; the Disabled Veterans and Purple Heart Associations would gain members by the hundreds. This is only a brief glimpse as to what it was like to live through that time in history. Hardship; sacrifice; death; disabilities; and divided families were just a normal way of life. Through it all, there was one thought and one Honor Flight members.

thought only Victory. Admiral Chester Nimitz spoke about the Marines on Iwo Jima and said, Uncommon Valor was a common virtue. That could also be said of the vast majority of GIs who fought; bled and died on the battle fields around the world. Now those who had born the weight of those times were coming home from an unforgettable trip of recognition and gratitude. The plane was landing; the band was playing; fireworks were going off and like all of those around me, I was cheering and waving my American flag. As they came off the plane, it was obvious that the years had taken their toll on these veterans. Many of them disembarked into wheel chairs. Legs that had carried them from San Diego to Japan; and from New York to Berlin, could no longer support them. Eyes that once looked through periscopes; bomb sights; and gun sights now needed thick glasses to focus. Voices that once barked orders and sang lusty songs were now barely audible but in spite of this, there was something special about these veterans. When they saw us and heard our cheers, every one of them sat straighter in their wheelchairs or stood straighter as they walked. Smiles erased the wrinkles on their faces and waves from their weakened arms brought applause. It was as if they realized maybe for the first time just what they had done and more importantly, that a grateful nation remembered. Joining me for this moving experience were Betty and Larry Clarke; Dick Stroub; Sandra Brotherhood; Donna Moran; Elaine and John Rojek; Avis Millett; Holly Bello; Joe Gignac; Larry Lee; Dale Lunsford; Rich Hurley; Dick Francis; Rich and Beverly Idone; Bill Mahar; Trude Smith; Peggy Konar and Marguerite Fiorenza. As Will Rogers once said, We cant all be heroes; sometimes we have to just stand on the curb and cheer.

Friday, May 31, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, May 31, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Sometimes it is best to err on the side of caution. This, however, has not always been my modus operandi down through the years. In fact, I am not very good when it comes to practicing anything, just ask the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. As of late, though, I have been practicing caution like I was going to Carnegie Hall. I am not very good at it yet, but my goal is to come to the point of perfection in the area of caution as it touches my person, particularly my health and well-being. This may be because I have reached that age when most men go through a midlife crisis. You can always tell when a man is going through his midlife crisis. He usually wants to prove he is as good at 60-something as he was when he was 20-something. Carelessly throwing caution to the wind, he attempts to do something beyond the energy of his existing body. One sure way to tell if a man is having a midlife crisis is to notice his recent injuries. Personally, when I was 20 I was not good at anything, which has enabled me to skip my midlife crisis. I am glad to be 60 (OK, maybe I am a tad over 60) because now when I get tired I can say I am tired and sit down. At 60-something I have absolutely nothing to prove. I am no better or worse than I was when I was 20. It is, as my wife notes, the ageless wonder of incompetency. The difficulty with growing older is that the old memory juices do not flow as swiftly as they once did. Of course, some of us never had a real gusher in that department anyway. The more memories I have, the less I am able to recall them in the innocency of their reality. Like the fisherman who tells the size of the one that got away. Memory seems to add or subtract according to the benefit of the person conjuring up the memory. A big problem a man in mid-life crisis has is that he does not remember how good he actually was when he was 20, unless of course, his wife knew him at that time. If he could, he would not have to try to replicate it when he is 60. This is one of the unique advantages of maturing. Forgetting always leads to exaggerating. Exaggerating at 60-something leads to injuries. The only purpose of this is to impress people who really are not being impressed. As we grow older things begin to change, and some things change for the better. When I was 20, I could not admit to anybody that I was tired. I would have been the laughing stock in my community if I would admit any such phenomena. You know what they say about the unlimited energy that young people have. Now that I am in my 60s, I can blame my advancing years on just about anything. I love to do that, but at my age I dont have the energy. This has covered a multitude of sins, for which I am so grateful. Of course, it does have one drawback, when someone in their 80s invites me to go for a walk, what in the world can you say to that? This next one has to be one of my favorites. I would love to do that but I have to get home for my afternoon nap. The person will look at me, notice my maturing features and understand that I desperately do need a nap, or something resembling beauty sleep. I found one the other week that has proved quite beneficial. I was invited to a function during the evening, which turned out to be a rather boring affair. Once the meal was over people were milling around engaged in small talk. Nothing bores me quicker than The many excuses of a man in midlife crisis Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder small talk. Not knowing what to do, I pondered the situation for sometime. Then, like lightning from the heavens, I was struck with a brilliant idea. I went up to my host and said, Im sorry, but it is getting near my bedtime and I have strict orders from my doctor to go to bed early. Youll have to excuse me. It worked like a charm. Everybody understood that a person of my age needs to go to bed early. I do not know who thought this up, probably Benjamin Franklin, but whoever it was, I owe them a steak dinPLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE20 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comA Memorial Day service, an opportunity to save a life, and sports are highlighted in this weeks OTOW Happenings.Lions ClubThe OTOW Lions club presented its annual Memorial Day service on May 27 in the ballroom of the Health and Recreation Building. The event was well-attended and proved to be a moving event that brought deserved honor to our nations fallen heroes. Incoming club president Richard Spahn gave a warm welcome to attendees and guests, followed by the invocation by Chaplain Robert Benson. Lion President Ralph Mills introduced honored guests and fellow Lions. The West Port High School R.O.T.C. presented the Colors, Lion President Ralph Mills lead the audience in the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, and Joan Stenson sang the National Anthem. The OTOW Concert Chorus then sang a medley of patriotic songs, followed by the playing of the theme song of each branch of the military service, with veterans in the audience standing as the theme song of the branch in which they served was heard. Lion Spahn introduced the guest speaker, Lt. Colonel Sharon Murry, USAF, Retired. Lt. Colonel Sharon Murry acknowledged the stirring words of President Bush and Abraham Lincoln that had been read by Lion Spahn, and after so doing, she went off-script, abandoning her prepared speech and proceeding to invite members of the audience to give information about someone dear to them who had given his or her life in the name of freedom. Without question, this was a very moving component of this Memorial Day Service, and I myself felt compelled to share my own story. My father, James Roy Hollyfield, was killed in action in 1951 during the Korean War. I was 5 years old at the time, and as I stated to those in the audience, I was taught that my father was a hero, and I added that he still is. Following Lt. Colonel Murrys address, Kenneth Colen and Lion President Ralph Mills presented the Memorial Wreath, followed by the playing of Taps. The West Port High School R.O.T.C. conducted the Retirement of the Colors, the OTOW Concert Chorus sang God Bless America, and Chaplain Robert Benson gave the benediction. The 2013 Memorial Day service brought honor to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice of life in service to our country to secure freedom both at home and abroad. They will never be forgotten.

The season started with the Cebert Wealth and Great Clips teams looking dismal and feeling they had no chance to move. Both teams struggled at the beginning of the season, but they started putting it together during the last two months. Both started putting wins together and inching up slowly but surely, while Tee Pee Tire, which had a strong team along the way, with the Overholser, started faltering and eventually headed towards the bottom of the standings. The Dr. Dunn team continued to hold on to second place, while the Wise Way team, which led most of the year, refused to give up the first place position. It took a while, but changes came. The Cebert Wealth and Great Clips Teams played so well during the last month that they edged past the Dr. Dunn Team. The last seven games of the season brought about a big change, as both the Cebert Wealth and Great Clips teams finally caught the Wise Way team and moved into a tie for first place. Now it was up to the last game of the year, with the Wise Way team only 1/2 game behind both the Great Clips and Cebert Wealth team. The Wise Way team won its final game, creating a three way tie for first place, along with Cebert Wealth and Great Clips. Now it was up to Cebert Wealth and Great Clips, either one winning their final game and ending up as the champs in the Winter League. Well, as fate would have it, both teams lost, and Wise Way returned to its first place position and became the Champs behind their manager, Jimmu Russo. It was a battle to the end, and it was a great season, as there was contention for top place throughout the year.

comprehension. Now theres the rub. Interest and incentive need to be generated within the home. My wifes parents and mine finished schooling at eighth grade. Her parents grew up in farm and factory country; mine in a big city. With optimism, they sent us to public schools during the worst years of the great depression and the hard times of World War II. Our parents read the daily papers, and challenged themselves with word puzzles. They also read paperback novels and hard cover books from their modest public libraries. Our reading habits were pre-K stimulated by parental powers of example. There are some little-known secrets in early reading proficiency. While we are all prisoners of the genes we inherited, there is evidence that intelligence is not necessarily limited by our birth certificates. Research indicates that West Indian African-Americans, Asian-Americans, and Jewish Americans tend to get more out of U.S. education than other ethnic groups because of student diligence and cultural encouragement within their families. As we were writing this article, we read a newspaper report of encouraging comments to the Public Policy Institute of Marion County by David Lawrence, former publisher of the Miami Herald and education activist. His concern is that so many children in Marion County are in poor shape as to their reading proficiency. Mr. Lawrences bulls-eye suggestion is that improving the quality of parenting and childrens environment may be more important than focusing on improvements in teaching quality. President Obama, the state of Florida, advocacy groups, and some education scholars are committed to universal pre-kindergarten education to help all children attain reading proficiency. Sounds like a right thing to do. However, were skeptical about another federal education initiative. The No Child Left Behind Program, intended to close the gaps between racial and ethnic groups, was unsuccessful. After 10 years and billions of dollars, that federal flagship program for disadvantaged students failed many children who were behind when the program was initiated in 2001. Our reservation is that universal preK could develop into another government program which may excuse rather than encourage family commitments to bettering childrens academic growth. In education matters, government is too often a creator of expensive unintended consequences.

West Marion Moose Lodge activities BY JEAN DIPIERO Special to the CitizenOn Sunday, May 26, the Indigo East community held its Memorial Day Pot Luck dinner. There was a great turnout. Before the dinner bell rang, Fred Masone told about the history of Memorial Day and asked for a moment of silence for our fallen service men and women. There was a delectable buffet to choose from. The neighbors really went all out. The menu included pulled pork, chicken parmigiana, eggplant parmigiana, fried chicken, meatballs, sausage with peppers, beef stew, different types of pasta salads, potato salad, several varieties of casseroles, bean salad, deviled eggs and much more. The desserts were awesome too. There were different pies, cakes and cupcakes. Everything was delicious. The tables were decorated with red/white/ blue tablecloths along with red/white/blue flowers as the centerpiece on each table. There was a 50/50 raffle as well. Special thanks to the following people who planned and organized this event: Mary Lou, Fred and Freddy Jr. Masone, Harold and Cathy Brouillard, Marcia Connolly, Cookie and Gordon Daniels, Mary Pat Giffin, Prudence Goodman, Sarah Logue, Dick and Paula Lord and Mary Walters.

PHOTOS BY FRANK DIPIERO On this day in 1879 the first electric railway opened at the Berlin Trades Exposition and in 1891 work on trans-Siberian railway began. Here in the United States railroad expansion occurred as the West was opened. Railroad agents told the Navajo, The coming of the Iron Horse will bring great prosperity to the Redman. But the Indians had reservations. The western railroads were fairly primitive. Being in business to make money, the railroad operators tried to increase revenue on each trip by carrying more people wanting to move to the West. They restricted passengers to be under a certain weight, in order to fit three people in a seat instead of only two. Not only was this extremely uncomfortable for the travelers, but it became obvious to those wishing to relocate that if this policy continued there would be no West for the reary. Todays world is not much different.The Big AppleA Long Island railroad train was moving along at its usual five-mile-an-hour clip when it stopped suddenly. A passenger asked the conductor, Why are we stopped? The conductor said, Theres a big turtle on the track. The passenger said, We stopped for a turtle ten minutes ago. The conductor said, I know, but we caught up with it again! Middle U.S.The train was about to pull out of the station. A young man managed to reach the train, throw his briefcase onto the cars steps, and climb aboard, gasping for air. Looking at him, another rider said, Young man, you should be in better shape. At your age, I could catch the train by a gnats whisker and still be fresh. Look at you, panting away. The young man took a deep breath and said, Pop, I missed this train at the last station.One lump or two?Poland still has a number of steam locomotives. One of them was running low on coal at night. The engineer said to his fireman, Were coming to a town, lets stop and send the porter out to get more coal. Can you see the name of the town on the depot sign? The fireman replied, It appears to be Danzig in the dark. The engineer shouted, Buy coal, Porter!Crime tracksDuring the war a soldier had been lashed to the train tracks and run over. The police quickly investigated the incident. At the ensuing press conference the police chief was asked if this were part of a foreign plot. No, said the chief, We believe there was a locomotive.Short linesAmtrak is very precise. If you call up and ask what time the noon train gets to California, the agent will tell you, Eight p.m.-give or take a few days. A railroad engineer must be sure not to lose his train of thought, or he might go down the wrong track. A fired newspaper editor took an express train out of town. Traveling by train is safer than flying. You dont have to worry about the conductor sitting on the engineers lap. The railroad brakeman hid his whiskey in the Cabooze. The boy who did a project on trains had to keep track of everything. The trainman who stepped on a live 3rd rail was a conductor. The railway had a safety problem, but tried to cover its tracks. You can be on the right track and still get hit by a train. One day the kleptomaniac decided to take the five o-clock train. But the authorities made him give it back. A train load of paint derailed. Nearby businesses were put in the red. A man said to the ticket agent, Id better take the Amtrak to Cleveland. The ticket agent said, I wish you would. Were sick of it here! SleeperA man and a woman who had never met were accidentally put in the same sleeping compartment of a train. After the initial embarrassment both went to sleep, the woman on the top bunk, the man on the lower. In the middle of the night the woman leaned over and said, Im sorry to bother you but Im awfully cold and I was wondering if you could possibly pass me another blanket. The man replied with a glint in his eye, Ive got a better idea. Lets pretend were married Why not, giggled the woman? Good, he replied, Get your own blanket!Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

It has now become part of my get-out-ofboring-situations arsenal. I was thinking about this the other day another good excuse popped into my head. Somebody invited me to come and play softball. At the time, they caught me off guard and I was trying to wiggle out of such an invitation. Then it dawned on me. I am sorry, I would like to but my health insurance does not cover that kind of activity. Whether my health insurance would cover that, I have no idea, but neither does anybody else, only my doctor knows for sure. While I was pondering this, I was reminded of a word from the Proverbs. Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain (Proverbs 25:14 KJV). Whoever boasts to others about their physical prowess is only fooling himself.The Rev. James L.

Throughout life, reading is not just fundamental. Its critical. Proficient readers can master just about anything. Sadly, children without words are seriously handicapped and may carry that burden for a lifetime, unless they are introduced to the power of reading. Recently released results of the FCAT third-grade reading scores for Marion County were about the same as last year. Fifty-one percent of Marion third graders scored as proficient readers. An encouraging column adjacent to the third-grade report was an article about the love-ofreading recognition ceremony for fifth graders at Greenway Elementary School. The headline was: Schools try to avoid students taking vacation from reading. Studies indicate that students who dont read during vacation may fall as much as three months behind in spelling andFriday, May 31, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVER TISING www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 31, 2013 This is a yearly column, updated with latest information.This is a big month for many young people in Marion County, as they leave high school and move on to the next phase of their lives. Graduation ceremonies are scheduled for local high schools, a landmark day for a few hundred young adults who are ready to venture out into the world. This graduating class has been through a little more than many of us. These young people were firstgraders on Sept. 11, 2001, when two planes smashed into the World Trade Center in New York, one hit the Pentagon and another crashed in Pennsylvania, changing the face of America forever. They are venturing into an uncertain world, one filled with fear of terrorism, one filled with eroding freedoms in the name of security. Those of us who have lived through many years of strife and conflict and many years of prosperity and peace, can give some words of advice to the young graduates. Whether they pay attention is up to them, and whether they agree is also up to them. But at least its a point of view that they can use to steer them in whatever direction they want to go. With just a few changes from the previous years columns, here we go: 1. If you have a chance to continue your education, by all means do so. In this era, it is almost impossible to advance yourself in the job market without some sort of post-secondary education. It can be college, junior college, trade school or specialized classes, but make sure you learn as much as you can. Youve made it through one important period youve got your high school diploma. Now look to see what else you can do to learn. Your brains are still relatively young you have a better capacity to learn than many of us old dogs, who find it hard to learn new tricks. 2. If you go to college, learn the difference between opinion and fact from your professors. The good ones will make it clear for you but there are some who will ram their thoughts down your throat, without making it clear that its what they think, not what the world accepts as truth. 3. If you havent already, develop a good work ethic. When it comes to studying and school assignments, the days of someone looking over your shoulder to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to are over. Youre on your own. Your education, or your job, are what you make it. Take a look at employment ads in almost every major field. Theyll say things like self-starter or must work well without supervision. Managers in the business world dont want to have to watch every step that you do. Learn to work by yourself with maximum effort. Remember, the world doesnt owe you a living you have to go out and make your own mark. 4. Choose your friends wisely. Hang around with people who have good goals, who want to make a decent mark in this world. There was a great commercial on TV (I cant remember what product it was for) where one guy in a group of wild young people gets a suit-and-tie job, so the others always want him to buy dinner, because they arent doing a thing. You will undoubtedly encounter some of these people steer clear and be your own person. Some years later, these will be the folks who will come to you begging for a job. 5. Stay active. There will come a time in your life when you cant exercise like you used to, but that day isnt here yet for most of you. Im afraid that we are producing a generation of computer-chair potatoes (as opposed to couch potatoes), those who do nothing but sit in front of a computer screen or play with a phone or tablet for all their free time. Get out and do something. You can walk, you can run, you can play a sport, you can swim just do something. Its good for your mind and your body. 6. Along that same line, learn how to talk to people, face to face. There is entirely too much Facebook, Tweeting, and other social networking going on, but sometimes young people have to talk to someone in person and they dont know what to say, or how to behave. Get off the phone and the computer and speak to people. Someday when youre interviewing for a job, it wont be on Facebook. But someday during that same job interview, your potential boss is going to ask permission to look at your Facebook postings, and all that cute little stuff and foul language that some of you might use will come back to haunt you. 7. Volunteer in the community. There are all sorts of things that need doing. Some involve some physical work, others involve using your brains to help people. Give something back to the community show that you care. You never know someday you may be one of the people who needs help, and maybe there will be folks around who will recall what you did for others, and youll get some help in return. And dont do it for the glory and the recognition. The best volunteers are those who work behind the scenes, who get nothing out of it but personal satisfaction. 8. Finally, keep the faith, and not just religious faith. If you are a religious person, you will be tested. Most of those who are religious find great solace in that faith, so dont let yourself get tempted away from it. But there is another kind of faith, faith in your fellow human beings, faith in the country. Be aware of the times you live in, for sure, but realize there are so many places in the world that are worse off than we are. While we live in the fear that there could be another attack on us somewhere in the U.S., there are people who live with the very real fear of being blown up every day. While we have medical care available to us when we get sick, there are people who succumb to the least little illness because their bodies cant fight diseases, or they have no access to things as simple as an aspirin. As you depart from high school, thank your teachers, your counselors, your school employees. They surely dont get rich doing what they do, but almost all of them love their profession. Someday you will realize how good the days of high school were. But for now, youve reached your goal of getting your diploma, which is a job well done.

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or The common lament among the ranks of our nations disabled veterans filing for service-connected disability compensation from the VA is, Delay, deny, wait till I die. As a candidate for the presidency, President Obama pledged to revamp the Veterans Affairs (VA) claims process. When General Eric Shinseki, a former Army Chief of Staff and highly respected combat wounded veteran, was appointed as the VA Secretary in 2009, he promised to end the claims backlog in two years. The promises of President Obama and Secretary Shinseki raised the hopes of veterans that the claims backlog would finally be eliminated. Instead, the backlog has gotten intolerably worse. Internal VA documents obtained by the Center for Investigative Reporting reveal the agencys claims process has virtually collapsed. The number of claimants waiting more than a year for their benefits has exploded from 11,000 in 2009 to 245,000 in December 2012 an increase of more than 2,000 percent. Particularly troubling is that the number of veterans dying before their claims were approved has skyrocketed. Between 2009 and 2012, the number of deceased veterans receiving approval too late for the compensation to help them while they were alive jumped from 6,400 to 19,500. Three factors in particular have contributed to the VAs inability to fulfill the promises of President Obama and Secretary Shinseki. Foremost is the VAs antiquated processing system. After spending more than half a billion dollars on a new computer system the past four years, 97 percent of all claims inexplicably remain on paper. The paper-laden claims process is further compounded by a points system that gives performance bonuses to workers for sending letters to veterans but not for spending extra time reading a claims file. Despite the VA publicly reporting it has hired 3,300 additional personnel since 2010, staffing at the VAs 58 regional offices only increased by fewer than 300 people due to turnover and the loss of more than 2,000 workers temporarily paid through stimulus funds. Lastly, with claims processors overwhelmed by an ever-burdensome workload, processing errors have reached a crisis state and a sense of helpless resignation has made the disability compensation claims of veterans secondary to struggling through another workday. Second only to the Department of Defense in size, the VA is saddled by a cumbersome bureaucracy, indurate procedures and inadequate staffing. As such, while the federal government has deemed some private corporations too big to fail, the VAs intolerable claims record argues it may be too big to be fixed. If the VA claims process is ever going to be fixed, it must be revamped and sufficiently resourced. Furthermore, the VA leadership, from the Secretary on down, must be held strictly accountable for ending this intolerable situation once and for all. Our nations disabled veterans merit more than hollow promises. Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Friday, May 31, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, May 31, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) An apparent act of injustice might turn out to be either an error in judgment or just plain stupidity. So calm down and cool off, and let the explanations roll out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its upsetting when someone you trusted might have failed you. But with new opportunities ahead, youll soon be too busy to feel even a wee bit sorry for yourself. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A sense of uncertainty could be a good reason to change your position on an important matter. Someone close might try to talk you out of it, but its your decision to make. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Being too zealous in pursuing your goal could create some resistance. Try to be more mindful of what you ask people to do, and theyll be more likely to do it. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Things change as you go from being ignored to being Lionized once again. This is a good time to reintroduce those previously rejected ideas to a more receptive audience. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Someone new in your life creates both anticipation as well as anxiety. Avoid the potential for misunderstandings by watching what you say and how you say it. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Watch your budget so that you dont overspend now and have less to invest when the time is right later on. Arrange to share your weekend with someone special. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) The temptation to involve yourself in a friends or family members personal problems is laudable. But get the facts before you make a firm commitment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might be upset by some of your critics. But most of your associates continue to keep the faith in your ability to get the job done, and done well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Youve reached an important point in your ongoing pursuit of your goals. You might now want to consider letting someone you trust join you on your journey. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youve been going through a spate of uncertainty involving people you care for. But it might be time to take a stand on a position you feel sure you can defend. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Treading water keeps you busy, but it wont get you where you need to go. Time to stop making excuses and to start moving ahead toward your goals. BORN THIS WEEK: You see life as both creative and pragmatic. You would not only be a fine artist, but also a successful one. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. THE DRY GRASS OF AUGUST By Anna Jean Mayhew Jubie Watts, the precocious 13-year-old narrator of The Dry Grass of August comes from a privileged white Southerners. When her family leaves their home in Charlotte, North Carolina with their black maid Mary Luther on a vacation throughout the South her eyes are opened to the reality of 1950s racism. Traveling by car their housekeeper endures hardship and humiliation when motels and restaurants refuse to admit her and when she is allowed to use outhouses, but not public bathrooms. The trip is an eye-opener in more than one way because Jubie soon realizes that her dysfunctional family is beginning to unravel and that its held together only by the tenacity of their loyal servant Mary. At relatives homes Mary cooks, cleans and cares for the four Watts children without complaint. That she is an exceptional woman is apparent to Jubie, the only one in her family to see the black womans value. In Andalusia, Alabama the family passes a grill with colored people in the doorway before stopping at a Whites Only restaurant. Mary announces that she will walk back to the grill. Jubie watches her prepare: Mary got her flowered bag from the trunk and took out a rose knit Id never seen before. In quick strokes she put on glossy lipstick, and then reached into her bag for red earrings and a matching necklace. With her handbag dangling from her fingertips she started down the street. Here is a book that has it alla compelling story that draws you in from the first page, a broad examination of family dynamics and racial conflict set against a backdrop of historical events. The social extremes of human behavior create unsettling intensity throughout that leads to a sad but somewhat predictable ending. More than a coming-of-age tale or a look at civil rights issues of the s, Mayhews debut novel is a simple but engrossing story about people who seem all too real and who make us care about them. Highly recommended.

Let your pantry serve as your starting point for creating memorable meals the family will love.Proper Pantry PracticesBefore letting those creative culinary juices flow, take inventory of your pantry. If you find items that are too old, that have never been touched, or that you hardly ever use get rid of them. Look closely at the ingredient list to decide which items to keep. Get rid of items filled with corn syrup and artificial sweeteners and colors. Foods with fewer ingredients and pronounce able words tend to be more natural or whole. Made from four ingredients, Kikkomans Soy Sauce is brewed naturally, using a traditional process that goes back hundreds of years. Other keepers include honey, canned beans, whole grain pastas or rice, raw nuts and olive oil. Once your pantry is in order, you can incorporate these healthy staples into meals using the freshest vegetables, poultry, fish and beef. By keeping your pantry stocked with the most whole some ingredients, you can be sure you are giving the very best to your family.

Each organization was moved by the plight of our less-fortunate contemporaries and generously agreed to donate a check from each treasury. Andrea continued to spread the word, with the assistance of Nancy Grabowski. Bunco players and Mah Jongg players agreed to pitch in. Individuals contributed. Like a snowball rolling downhill, the collection began to grow and grow. There were a few, admittedly, who thought these efforts wouldnt make a difference. They were proved wrong when the final tally was complete, this small circle of friends raised $660, which was be presented on Thursday, May 23. Stroh accepted the donation in the multi-purpose room at the Senior Services building, and told the people attending that some cuts still might have to be made. The story doesnt end here. More help is needed. Contributions can be mailed directly to: Marion Senior Services, 1101 SW 20th Court, Ocala FL 34471. You can also call Nancy Grabowski at 873-4315 for more information.Editors Note: Senior Services has announced that it will close for meals two days in June to save funds.

This Ocala Outdoor Sculpture Competition PLEASESEECONTEST, PAGE3 BY JIM CLARK EditorA crowd dominated by a large number of veterans gathered Sunday afternoon at the Appleton Museums theater to watch a movie about the Honor Flight program. Ocalas final Honor Flight was last week, during which a number of World War II veterans traveled to Washington, D.C., for a day of visiting the memorials dedicated to them and their comrades. It was a day for memories for the vets, most of whom are in their 80s and 90s. The ceremony and accompanying movie on Sunday brought back some of those memories. The movie tells the story of four men from the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area who made the trip from there, and also describes how that area organized the flights. It was a touching one hour, 20-minute show which was narrated in part by the men themselves. It described their trip and showed highlights of their visit to D.C. Before the showing of the movie, there was a short program. Mary Ellen Poe, CEO of Hospice of Marion County, welcomed the visitors who nearly filled the facility. Students Loyd Adams IV and Kinley Nichols led the Pledge of Allegiance. Trey Adams, Honor Flight coordinator/hub director, and community relations director for Emeritus East, gave the introduction. Robin and the Giant of WOCA played and led the National Anthem, and also sang a song about the Honor Flight. A Veterans Pinning Ceremony was held to honor Jim Hilty Sr., financial adviser, Edward Jones Investments. Adams then introduced the film, and the crowd settled back to watch. The film can be purchased from Amazon.com Honor Flight movie gets local screening PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKAbove, left, Loyd Adams IV and Kinley Nichols leave the stage after leading the Pledge of Allegiance.

Film chronicles efforts of volunteers to build program from scratch in Midwest Special to the CitizenOn Sunday, May 12, Mothers Day, Andrea Flannery was relaxing with a newspaper when an article on Senior Services caught her eye. This article was asking for help to close a budgetary gap which would impact Meals on Wheels, respite care givers, and the daily communal dining program. Sarah Stroh, director of Marion Senior Services, said that if a fraction of our county each gave a single dollar, the gap would be bridged. The gap was caused by the federal governments sequester. That article galvanized Andrea, a warm-hearted, caring former nurse, into action. She called the article to the attention of her friends who responded swiftly. Individuals, small social groups, and organized clubs within On Top of the World banded together. On Monday, May 13, the mens PHOTO BY JIM CLARKSarah Stroh, left, of Marion Senior Services, receives $660 from Andrea Flannery of On Top of the World. Looking on in back is Nancy Grabowski. golfing groups were told the story by Archie Pollard and Bill Flannery. The men agreed to chip in a few dollars each day. By the end of the week, they had collected $222.
