Ocala Eye and Hospice partnered to have the annual Frank Polak Memorial bicycle ride. The ride has raised several thousand dollars for Hospice over the years. Just before the 8 a.m. start, groups had an opportunity for team photos. The ride got under way as the Marion Sheriffs motorcycle unit led them off with lights and sirens. Several sheriff cruisers were also present to run interference for the bicycle riders. Three different length rides were available depending on your ability. Riders $40 donation got them a fully staffed ride of 80, 62, or 30 miles. There was a rest stop with chairs, food with beverages and portable shelter to keep the sun away. There was no rain which was good for narrow tires many riders had. Pastries were available at the start for riders to stock up on calories for the long ride ahead of them. The top photo shows the riders getting ready to start. STORY AND PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELAbove, left, motorcycle officers get ready to escort the riders. Top right, the scene at the rest stop. 107th birthday Jack Silverman of Ocala celebrated his 107th birthday on June 1. He was honored by his daughter, Bobbie Seidel, a resident of Stone Creek. Almost three quarters of a million undocumented individuals are estimated to live in Florida, many thousands of whom are migrants and other farmworkers who live a shadowy existence among us right here in Marion County. They provide the backbone upon which our billion dollar horse and agricultural industries prosper and service and construction enterprises rely. When the Friday Forum next meets for lunch at Buffet City in Ocala on June 14, a panel of three area activists will address their compelling and urgent needs as well as those of employers seeking both skilled and unskilled labor while the larger community is called upon to provide emergency humanitarian support. Congress, meanwhile continues to grapple with a major overhaul in our immigration laws in light of border security concerns as well as increasing appreciation for the need to integrate into full membership in our society the approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants now living in the United States by providing them with a path to citizenship. Speakers are Phil Kellerman of Harvest of Hope Foundation, Rev. Bob Miller of the Ocala Farm Ministry and Forum tackles migrants, immigration PLEASESEEFORUM PAGE3 In its 2013 Atlantic hurricane season outlook issued in May, NOAAs Climate Prediction Center is forecasting an active or extremely active season this year. For the six-month hurricane season, which began June 1, NOAAs Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook says there is a 70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 7 to 11 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). These ranges are well above the seasonal average of 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes. With the devastation of Sandy fresh in our minds, and another active season predicted, everyone at NOAA is committed to providing life-saving forecasts in the face of these storms and ensuring that Americans are prepared and ready ahead of time. said Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., NOAA acting administrator. As we saw first-hand with Sandy, its important to remember that tropical storm and hurricane impacts are not limited to the coastline. Strong winds, torrential rain, flooding, and tornadoes often threaten inland areas far from where the storm first makes landfall. Three climate factors that strongly control Atlantic hurricane activity are expected to come together to produce an acStormy summer is likely Andrea Barry Chantal Dorian Erin Fernand Gabrielle Humberto Ingrid Jerry Karen Lorenzo Melissa Nestor Olga Pablo Rebekah Sebastien Tanya Van Wendy 2013 hurricane names Chart Page 16 PLEASESEESTORMS PAGE17 You can adopt a cat from Animal ServicesApril showers bring May flowers, but this spring it rained cats and kittens, leaving Marion County Animal Services with a flood of fabulous felines this June.

BY BARB DEDICS Special to the Citizen More than 160 citizens recently completed classes offered to the public known as the Marion County Sheriff s Citizens and Partnership (CAP) Academy. Thanks to Sheriff Chris Blair, this the first of many sessions being offered to the public in over a decade. The three-month sessions started in early March and were held weekly. Citizens (including myself) are proud and honored to have been given this opportunity of hearing and seeing the inside scoop of the many departments within the Marion County Sheriffs Office (MCSO). Sessions included various speakers from, but not limited to the following departments: Records, Budget, Officer Training, Internal Affairs, Search and Seizure, Surveillance Techniques, Booking, Safety Precautions, Patrol Operations, Bomb Squad Techs, SWAT Team Operations, Violent Crimes, Cargo Theft and Cold Cases. Additionally, tours were given of the MCSO Jail, Inmate Work Farm, Garage and various vehicles, State of the Art Emergency Control Center and the MC Courthouse. For those interested in attending the next session which will start in August, please contact Carolyn Fender at CFender@marionso.com or Jenifer Lowe at JLowe@marionso.com. These ladies are marvelous organizers and very dedicated to this program. This is truly to your benefit to learn what these men and women do for this county on a limited budget. Are you aware that there are approximately 750 paid employees within the MCSO....and approximately 700 volunteers who serve in various capacites? The volunteers alone save county taxpayers almost $3 million. You can be sure to learn something new every week. Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 2 ~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Citizens graduate from academy Riders on the bus to the courthouse. PHOTO BY BARB DEDICSHere are the residents who completed the Citizens Academy. BY CAROLYN SLOCUMB Special to the Citizen What better way to begin the Memorial Day weekend than to have one of our own residents go on the Honor Flight to Washington, DC. Jack Sheidler was on the plane for the trip last October, but because of mechanical problems, that flight was cancelled. However, last Thursday the plane was here, the weather was beautiful, and over 80 World War II veterans made the trip to our nations capital. This flight was the sixth and last Honor Flight from Ocala. Over 600 veterans from the Ocala area have been on the flights from here. Ocala ranks third in the country in the number of veterans honored with this trip. Each veteran had an assigned attendant with him/her for the entire day. Jack said he was honored to have Sheriff Chris Blair sit with him for part of the flight. The plane left Ocala International Airport very early Thursday morning (May 23), and returned that evening a little after 9. The flight began with breakfast being served cereal, fruit, and yogurt. The plane landed at the Baltimore-Washington Airport where the honorees were met by buses. The vets were divided into three groups red white blue. Jack was in the red hat group. The first stop was at the Capitol where they were greeted by Congressmen and a drum and bugle corps. Jack said just standing in the Rotunda of the Capitol was a thrill. Next stop on the tour was the World War II Memorial; Jack got to see the section in honor of those who served from Ohio (he is from Ohio). After enjoying a box lunch, it was back on the buses to Arlington National Cemetery. They witnessed a very moving ceremony of the Changing of the Guard, and also the presentation of flowers by family members. Following this, it was back to the buses for the journey back to the airport for the return trip to Ocala. A hot meal of meatloaf and all the trimmings was served on the return trip. As the plane approached the Ocala runway, Jack said they could see the flood lights and the hundreds of people waving flags to welcome them home. Also, the Kingdom of the Sun Band was playing and two fire trucks greeted the plane with the honor spray, fireworks lighted the sky, and the ladder truck had the American flag flying from the extended ladder. Jack said that when he was asked what was the highlight of the trip his response was the welcome home reception at the Ocala airport. Margene, Jacks wife of 68 years, was right there on the front row to meet her hero. It was also Margenes 89th birthday, but she said she couldnt have wished for anything more than to see Jack get this trip. Along with Margene, there were about 20 more Quail Meadow residents there to greet Jack. Quail Meadow had another resident on this trip; Teresa Bachand was one of the assistants on the plane. I must say, this is a night I will always remember. Jack Sheidler was called to serve in the Navy in September, 1943 and he served until May 1946. Most of his time was spent at Pearl Harbor. He took a short leave in 1945 and went home to marry Margene. By the way, he still has his original dog tags. After completing his service time, Jack and Margene made their home in Ohio. Now let me tell you a little bit about Jack and Margenethey have been residents of Quail Meadow since November 2000. After living in several other Florida locations, they have settled in Quail Meadow. They migrated to the Sunshine State from a small town in northwest Ohio. Margene retired from teaching social studies and geography in a junior high school. Jack retired from the post office. He worked as a clerk for 10 years, and then moved on to a Rural Route. He delivered the mail for over 20 years. He said that he and Margene were fortunate to be able to retire from their jobs at the same time. Jack said that after over 20 years of driving the country roads during, rain, snow and sleet, he was ready for the Florida lifestyle. Their favorite hobby is travel. Jack and Margene have many memories of their numerous trips. They have visited all 50 states and most of the National Parks, as well as many foreign countries. Their favorite form of travel now is either by cruise ship or bus. Several years ago they were members of the Airstream Club and traveled with their own trailer. Margene said that living full time in a travel trailer was just too close for comfort. In their spare time, Jack and Margene take care of the QM library. They regularly sort the books and duplicates are either donated to the Hospice Thrift Store or the Marion County Library. This veteran enjoyed his trip on the final Honor Flight The crowd waited for the flight from Washington to arrive. Jack and Margene Scheidler after his arrival.

Hampton wanted payments of $100, but later upped that to $500, and wanted the victim to sign a paper that she would pay for four years. The victim contacted deputies, and when she and Hampton met at a bank on State Road 200, deputies were watching. The victim had been given money that had been photo copied. When she signed the paper and gave it to Hampton, deputies took Hampton into custody in the parking lot and took her to jail, where a search turned up the money in her bra. Sheriffs detectives are looking for a couple suspected in a scam targeting senior citizens. Detectives want people to know how the scam works: a couple, white male/white female, approach a homeowner and make an unsolicited bid to do some kind of handyman Extortion, scams keep deputies busy work. In one case, the male did some tree service; in another case, the male filled cracks in a driveway. The couple finds a way to get inside the home to steal, by asking to use the bathroom or for a glass of water. The suspects are both in their early 20s. The male has a dark crew cut; he is tall and slim; and may identify himself as Willie. The female may spend time holding a 1-year-old baby. Victims say the couple is driving a 4-door late model dark gray pickup with yellow or orange stripes down the side. If you have had interaction with this suspect couple, please call (352) 438-5920. If this couple comes to your home, please call 911. An Ocala man was accused of cashing fraudulent checks drawn on Wells Fargo Bank from a company in Sarasota, which complained about the action on its account. Michael Graves of Northwest 2nd Avenue was taken into custody at a bank in Ocala, but one of the checks was cashed at Wells Fargo bank on State Road 200. He told police that he was approached by two men, that they spent the night at a motel at State Road 40 and the Interstate, and the next day he was driven around to cash the checks. Deputies are checking for the men, one of whom was identified as being from Decatur, Ga.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Cheer up, Lamb. Your emotional impasse will lift once you allow your highly tuned sense of justice to guide you on what to do about an associates questionable behavior. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) News about a project you hoped to work on might need more clarification. Take nothing just on faith. Draw up a list of questions, and insist on each being fully answered. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Giving your time to help others is fine. But dont lose sight of your own needs. Make plans for an energy-restoring getaway with that very special person in your life. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Congratulate yourself on getting that difficult job done to everyones satisfaction. This could be the first of many such challenges you might be offered down the line. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) With your enthusiasm soaring again, you feel ready to tackle a tough new assignment. Good for you! And remember: Dont be too proud to accept help when its offered. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Cupid rules the week for single Virgos eager to make a romantic connection. Meanwhile, Virgo couples experience renewed commitment in their relationships. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Home and work issues vie for your attention through early next week. Rely on your Libran sense of balance to keep you from being overwhelmed by either side. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Creative projects might have to go on standby as you tackle other matters making demands on your time and energy. Things should ease by the middle of next week. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your energies are high, and so are your aspirations. But be careful not to let work dominate the week. Its also important to spend time with family and friends. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Its a good time to set aside your pride and stop nursing those hurt feelings. Instead, consider restoring relationships you want to have back in your life. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might be miffed at not being shown more appreciation for your hard work. But dont brood over it. Recognition comes in its own time and in its own way. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) With your inner creative juices starting to boil and bubble, this is a good time to launch a new arts-related project, or go back and restart the one you had set aside. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. BY ENID B. JONES Special to the Citizen The next meeting of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club will be Monday, June 17, at 7 p.m. at the Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. At the April meeting, members welcomed speaker Dr. Joyce Blake, Democratic State Committee Woman, whose position allows her to move around the state in support of the Democratic Party as liaison between the county and state. She was also elected chair for Congressional District 3 which encompasses several counties. One of the requirements of her position is to volunteer for various state committees, clubs and caucuses hence she was able to share with us issues that can impact the operation of our MODC The Democratic Executive Committee is focusing on the 2014 mid-term election to elect a democratic governor. Our work includes raising funds to support of candidates who will be emerging soon. Attendance to state convention in October in Orlando would be a great source of information on candidates and other issues in the party. The convention is open to everyone. Dr. Blake mentioned that there is also focus on two mayoral elections in the state in the hope that if democrats are elected that will provide a boost to build from the bottom up in expanding the party in the state. The build-up is very important as there is no democrat in Marion County elected positions so grass roots efforts are needed to support candidates for local elections. Another strategy for the Committee is to have boots on the ground in all communities and populations to encourage potential candidates. To enhance the work in the community changes were made to the By-laws of Marion County Democratic Party such that instead of requiring Precinct Captains in the ratio of one man and one woman per 1,000 Democrats the new requirement will be one man and one woman per 1,000 voters in the precinct. This will serve to increase the number of individuals who can serve as Precinct Captains. Dr. Blake also talked about the newly formed Democratic Womens Club which will deal specifically with issues related to women in the county. The meetings will be held the second Thursday each month at 6:30 p.m. at DEC Headquarters (601 S.W. 1st Ave., Ocala). The search is on for committee members for this new club. Further, the United Auto Workers Retired provided a bus to transport interested individuals to visit with elected members of the Legislature in Tallahassee on April 24. This was an opportunity to meet face to face with legislators to express your concerns and share ideas. Her comments were timely and very informative. Members are reminded that volunteers are needed at Democratic Executive Committee Headquarters at 601 S.W. 1st Ave., Ocala to help with the phones on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. For more information call 352402-9494 or email Joyce Blake at blakejag90@embarqmail.com.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Road. All veterans living in Marion County are encouraged to attend this informative and educational free event. Spotlight on Memorial DayUnder the over all command of President Bill Mahar, the Cherrywood Veterans Club hosted the Memorial Day observance for a record number of guests. More than 130 people came to honor those who made the supreme sacrifice in service to their country. The program began with the presentation of colors by the Cherrywood Color Guard. Led by Jerry Moscariello, the detail presented the American Flag by reenacting the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima. Richard Becotte, our resident deejay, provided the music for the day starting with the National Anthem. Many in the crowd spontaneously sang along. Following the National Anthem, Steven Jacobs, retired Navy Chief Petty Officer and director of the Veterans Services Office here in Ocala, gave an inspiring speech on the significance of Memorial Day. He made reference to the fact that while most Americans consider Memorial Day the beginning holiday of the summer; veterans and their families know the real meaning is to honor those who gave their all. It is the veteran, as Chief Jacobs said, that understands the significance of words like sacrifice and service. A salute to the Armed Forces followed Chief Jacobss remarks with a playing of the songs for each of the branches of service; Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine. This too was well received with guests singing and clapping along. Solemnity hushed the crowd as the Honor Detail made their way to the monument for the wreath laying ceremony. As the Navy Hymn played, Ruth Hurley read the names of all 30 of our veterans who have passed away over the years, thus keeping our promise to always remember. Thirty small flags, one for each of our deceased members adorned the monument as this years wreath presenters neared. The Honors Detail was made up of Skip Smith and his wife Trude; accompanied by President William Mahar; Peggy Konar and Bugler Joe Gignac. Skip Smith with assistance from his wife Trude and Peggy Konar, rose from his wheel chair. His courage and commitment inspired every one present as he placed the beautiful floral wreath on its stand in front of the flag pole. Our Color Guard dipped their flags in quiet salute. Everyone else stood at attention and joined the flag bearers in silent tribute to the fallen. The silence of this somber moment was broken by the bitter sweet strains of Taps as it echoed forth across the silent crowd. As the last note died, the Honors Party began to withdraw and the color guard prepared to pass in review. After a short break, at noon exactly, Color Party members, Joe Gignac and Marty Duesel manned the flag pole in preparation for the raising of the flag from half staff to full staff. Again, many of the visitors came out to witness this traditional ceremony and as Rich Becotte sounded the National Anthem, the flag went hurriedly up to its honored place at the top of the pole. Proving that Murphy is alive and well, during this ceremony, the flag came loose from one of its grommets and had to be hastily repaired. Thanks to Fred OHern, and the Color Detail, the flag was quickly secured and was hoisted to its rightful place. Following the service, everyone went into the brightly decorated clubhouse. Patriotic flowers and ribbons; flags and centerpieces were in place thanks to Eve Houghtaling and Ida Mahar. Once the visitors had gone inside, the meal was served. Bill Brotherhood and his group of grill masters had the hamburgers and hot dogs cooked to perfection and ready to serve to the hungry throng. Eve Houghtaling was in charge of the servers and she and her crew managed to feed the record number of visitors in just over a half hour. This was a record time for a record crowd. Our kitchen detail headed by Peggy Konar was outstanding in dishing up potato salad; beans; making sure there were plenty of drinks and keeping the serving line supplied. Both kitchen and serving volunteers worked in perfect harmony making the lines go quickly and smoothly. Trude Smith and Wanda Huff manned the fully stocked dessert table. Cakes, pies, cookies, brownies and mouth watering sweets of every description were brought in by donors to be shared by all. Midge Lee, Bill Spangenberg and Jim Houghtaling sold 50/50 tickets and Joe Gignac collected the meal tickets. As you might imagine, an event of this size and scope does not just happen. Detailed planning and the hard work of our volunteers made this meaningful and touching ceremony and the luncheon that followed possible. We here note and thank our volunteers: Color Guard members taking part, Jerry Moscariello, director; Ken Beech; Marty Duesel; Phil Tatro; Dick Francis; Ray Tafilowski; Linda Sisto; Bernice Hasinec; Donna Moran; Marie Ustianowski; Jan Anderson and Al deLaurentis. Our kitchen crew and cooks included, Peggy Konar, supervisor; Marguerite Fiorenza; Genevieve Downs; with Dick Francis handling the drinks. On the grill Bill Brotherhood headed the team of Al Buechter; Dick Straub; Bill Huff; Herb Neubaur and Jerry Giovanniello. On the serving line, Christl Giovanniello; Sandra Brotherhood; Ruth Hurley; Marti Duesel; and Ida Mahar worked with Eve Houghtaling who directed the team. At 2 oclock, the winners of the raffles and 50/50 drawings were announced. Two gift certificates were awarded; one to Beef OBradys and one to Sammys Restaurant. In addition, a floral display was also given out. Three people were winners of the 50/50 drawings. There was some food left over in spite of the record crowd which showed up for our service; testament that everyone had plenty to eat. Jim & Eve Houghtaling delivered the excess food to the Salvation Army Soup Kitchen in Ocala. The Veterans Club would like to thank all of our volunteers and everyone who took their time to pay respects to those who gave up all their tomorrows for us to have this day.From your reporterIts a busy time here at Cherrywood and summer vacations are upon us.

CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 Update your emergency contact listThe recent disasters in Oklahoma highlighted the need for law enforcement to have access to emergency contact information. Now as Floridians brace for the 2013 Hurricane Season and create disaster preparedness plans, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles encourages you to make sure first responders know who to notify if you are in an emergency situation. The Department offers Emergency Contact Information registration online at https://services.flhsmv.gov/eci/ and in driver license offices (to include driver license offices operated by county tax collectors). Floridians who hold a current driver license or identification card can enter up to two contacts into the ECI database. Even if you have registered your information previously, it is a good idea to update your contacts periodically, especially if you or your contacts have moved. It takes only a few minutes, and there is no fee to register. The information you register is only available to law enforcement officers in the event of an emergency. Registering your emergency contact information can provide families and loved ones with added peace of mind, said DHSMV Executive Director Julie L. Jones. We are pleased that more than 7 million Floridians have registered their contacts, but that leaves nearly 10 million whose contact information is not available to police. The Florida Highway Patrol has run into situations where a person involved in a crash had registered their emergency contact information but failed to update it, said FHP Director Col. David Brierton. Outdated information can significantly delay our efforts to provide quick notification to families and loved ones. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Dear EarthTalk: Why are wetlands so important to preserve? -Patricia Mancuso, Erie, PA Wetlands include swamps, marshes, bogs, riverbanks, mangroves, floodplains, rice fields and anywhere else, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), that saturation with water is the dominant factor determining the nature of soil development and the types of plant and animal communities there. They are widespread in every country and on every continent except Antarctica. If all the worlds wetlands were put together, they would take up an area one-third larger than the United States. Environmentalists, biologists and others concerned about the health of the planet and its inhabitants recognize the key role wetlands play in life on Earth. The EPA points out that, besides containing a disproportionately high number of plant and animal species compared to other land forms, wetlands serve a variety of ecological services including feeding downstream waters, trapping floodwaters, recharging groundwater supplies, removing pollution and providing fish and wildlife habitat. Wetlands can also be key drivers of local economies, given their importance to agriculture, recreation and fishing. According to Wetlands International, a global non-profit dedicated to the conservation and restoration of wetlands around the world, wetlands are on the frontline as development pressures increase everyEARTH TALK Why are wetlands so important? where. Wetlands are vulnerable to over-exploitation due to their abundance of fish, fuel and water, reports the group, which works on the ground in 18 countries to educate the public and policymakers about the health of local wetlands and to advocate for better policies. When they are viewed as unproductive or marginal lands, wetlands are targeted for drainage and conversion. The rate of loss and deterioration of wetlands is accelerating in all regions of the world, the group adds. The pressure on wetlands is likely to intensify in the coming decades due to increased global demand for land and water, as well as climate change. The widespread expansion of development in the U.S. in recent decades has brought the issue of wetlands loss to the forefront of debates on zoning and land use planning. One of the key and underlying issues is concern about endangered species: More than a third of species on the U.S. Endangered Species List live only in wetlands and almost half use them at some time during their lifecycles. While the issue lingers on in municipal planning meetings around the country, the federal government does what it can to protect wetlands. It does so through regulations spelled out in the Clean Water Act, which include providing tax incentives for selling or giving wetlands to land trusts or other conservation groups, via cooperative efforts with state and local entities, and by acquiring wetlands outright to add acreage to public lands systems.

Other times when I have great difficulty coming up with an appropriate theme I get a headache. Picking todays theme was easy. This week is National Headache Awareness Week.Party timeA little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, Daddy, you shouldnt wear that suit. And why not, darling? It always gives you a headache next morning. Blonde headacheA blonde went to the doctor to complain about headaches. Noticing she hadnt taken off her headphones at all during the exam, he suggested they might be the cause of her headaches. He told her to take them off. Oh, no. I just couldnt, she said. Without them, Id surely die. Oh, come now, the doctor said, let me help you. And he pulled them off her head. Sure enough, moments later, she was unconscious on the floor. Curious, he picked up the headphones and heard, Breathe in...breathe out...breathe in...breathe out. Splitting thoughts If you have a lot of tension and you get a headache, do what it says on the aspirin bottle: Take two aspirin and Keep away from children. Im as sound as a dollar, but Ill get better. The man had a bad headache and went to the bowling alley. His doctor had told him to go and rest someplace where he could hear a pin drop. The hillbillys wife is a pain in the neck, a real headache who can cause lots of strife. The hillbilly said that he does love her still. When his tractor broke down, a Kansas framer used a rake to gather all his wheat. He said, It caused me my grain headache. Anybody who can swallow an aspirin at a drinking fountain deserves to get well. I tried acupuncture a while back. Not feeling too good one evening, I called my acupuncturist. He told me, Take one safety pin and call me tomorrow morning! Tell me a word that begins and ends with he. I cant play word games right now. I have a splitting headache. Bee Sting A man came running to the doctor shouting and screaming in pain. Please, doctor, youve got to help me. Ive been stung by a bee! Dont worry, says the doctor. Ill put some cream on it. You will never find that bee. It must be miles away by now. No, you dont understand! answered the doctor. Ill put some cream on the place you were stung. Oh! It happened in the garden behind my house. No, no, no! said the doctor getting frustrated. I mean on the part of your body the bee stung you. On my finger! screamed the man in pain. The bee stung me on my finger. Which one? the doctor asked. How do I know? All the bees looked alike. LetdownA man lay sprawled across three seats in the Ocala theater. When the usher noticed this, he whispered to the man, Sorry, sir, but youre only allowed one seat. The man groaned, but didnt budge. The usher became impatient. Sir, if you dont get up, Im going to have to call the manager. Once again, the man just groaned. When the usher returned with the manager the two of them tried to move the man, but with no success. Finally, they summoned a policeman who asked, All right, whats your name? Fred, the man moaned.

Readers can do their part by staying current on local zoning laws, keeping an eye on local wetlands and speaking up if something looks amiss. Potential problems are much easier to resolve early on than after damage is done, so speaking up soon can often lead to more successful and less contentious outcomes. D ear E art hT al k: Wh at is t h e All One Ocean campaign ?--B ill O N eill L os Angeles CA All One Ocean is a non-profit campaign launched in 2010 by long-time author, activist and organizer Hallie Austen Iglehart with the goal of reducing the amount of plastic and other trash that ends up in the ocean where it compromises the health of marine wildlife and ecosystems. Iglehart was incensed to learn that a million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals and turtles die each year from ingesting plastic in the water columnand created All One Ocean to do something about it. Contrary to popular myth that most ocean pollution is oil spilled from ships, most of it is land-based litter. The most dangerous litter is our throw-away plastic because of its longevity and capacity to increase in toxicity, eventually returning to the human food chain in a more lethal form, reports Iglehart. Much of our plastic ends up in the ocean in giant collections of trash called gyres, created by circular ocean currents, she adds. They trap debris for decades where it continues to break into ever smaller, more toxic pieces, never fully biodegrading. Of particular concern to Iglehart is the fact that much of this carelessly discarded plastic winds up in the bellies of marine life, contaminating not just ocean ecosystems but in some cases the very seafood on our dinner plates. The main project of All One Ocean is the creation and maintenance of permanent, community supported Beach Clean Up Stations, which are essentially boxes containing reusable bags for beach visitors to use in picking up trash during their time on the sand and in the surf. The idea is to empty any garbage into a trash can somewhere (so it can find its way to a landfill instead of out into the ocean) and then ideally return the bag empty to the box. Each clean-up station also provides a sign with information on the extent of the problem.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, June 7, 2013 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen Republicans are upset about President Obamas May 23 foreign-policy address, yet politics aside, its hard to say why. We show this lack of resolve, talking about the war being over, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Fox News Sunday. But four days later in his Memorial Day remarks, Obama said, Our nation is still at war. Why did the earlier speech set off Republicans? He acknowledged that terrorism can never be completely eliminated and that a risk-free society is impossible. He conceded that U.S. military action breeds enemies. He admitted that not every foreign violent organization is a threat to Americans. He even quoted James Madison: No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare. Indeed, Obama said some things that need saying, but will he do what needs doing? More precisely, will he stop doing what shouldnt be done? The speech provides no reason for optimism. For one thing, his premise is wrong: The U.S. government was on a perpetual war footing before the attacks of 9/11, intervening one way or another in many places. The war on terror has just been more visible. Obama says he wants to understand the roots of terrorism, but he just repeats bromides. These threats dont arise in a vacuum, he said. Most, though not all, of the terrorism we face is fueled by a common ideology a belief by some extremists that Islam is in conflict with the United States and the West. But this implies the extremist ideology arose in a vacuum. Obama shows no understanding that Muslim violence has been a response to generations of Western and most recently American efforts to maintain hegemony in the Muslim world. These efforts have consisted in direct overt and covert intervention, backing for brutal and corrupt dictators and monarchs, and enabling of Israels repression of the Palestinians. From Osama bin Laden on down, the perpetrators of anti-American violence have consistently said so. Despite Obamas acknowledgement of the dangers, to Americans and others, of perpetual U.S. warfare, one strains to find signs of change in the speech. He says our response to terrorism cant depend on military or law enforcement alone, but he still envisions a large role for the military: He says the first order of business is to finish the work of defeating al Qaeda and its associated forces. And, Beyond the Afghan theater, we only target al Qaeda and its associated forces. But its associated forces is a conveniently vague justification for continued U.S. militarism. It goes beyond Congresss 2001 authorization for military force. While Obama promises only to narrow the use of drones and shift responsibility from the CIA to the Pentagon, we cant be sure even this will happen or matter. His presidential policy guidance is classified, and he reserves the authority to target alleged militants who pose a continuing and imminent threat when he decides that other alternatives are unavailable or are too risky. Yet his administration has drained the word imminent of meaning Before any strike is taken, he added, there must be near-certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured the highest standard we can set. But he conceded that his administration has killed an undisclosed number of noncombatants. Independent sources say several hundred have been killed while entire villages live in terror of the next strike. This will not change. Remember that administration targets are only accused of planning attacks. There is no due process, and an oversight board would not change that. Obama defended his killing of American Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen on the grounds that alAwlaki had helped plan attacks, but Obama offered no proof, and investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill says the first efforts to kill Awlaki preceded the terrorist plots he is allegedly linked to. And what about the separate drone killings of al-Awlakis 16-year-old son and other Americans? Obama also renewed his longdormant call for closing Guantanamo but not before the mass hunger strike and force-feedings that the whole world is watching. This all looks more like legacy preparation than real change in policy. Witness Syria and Iran. So why are Republicans fussing? Obama said, We cannot use force everywhere that a radical ideology takes root. For Republicans, thats unAmerican. Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). M y first encounter with a hurricane, that I remember, was in 1954. We had just moved to a house on a hill in northern New Jersey, a one-story with a basement, facing west. I remember hearing about this storm called Hazel that was cutting across the northeast on its way to Canada, after starting in Haiti where it killed 1,000 people. At that point, I had no idea where Haiti was, but I didnt want something that could kill that many people coming my way. My parents said not to worry, that it was greatly weakened by the time it got to us. I learned a bit about hurricanes then, particularly the fact that the wind comes only from one direction when youre on one side of the storm or another. The wind was brutally strong from the east, but we had our front door open except for the screen door, since we faced west. No air conditioning in those days, incidentally. I sat there fascinated and watched the driving wind and rain, which we seemed to be immune to. But then I saw a tree, about 15 feet tall, blow past the house. Not a branch, mind you, but the whole tree. If I remember right, I went into my room and pulled down the shade. I didnt want to see any more of it. So now Im older and supposedly wiser, and where do I live? Florida, one of the spots where hurricanes strike the U.S. first. My home is surrounded by big trees, too. But in this day and age, we have things like satellite images, constant radar and other tools to tell us when and where a hurricane will strike, and how strong it will be. Most of the time the forecasts are accurate, but occasionally a storm will veer to a new course and surprise people. Just remember Hurricane Charley, which was supposed to hit the Tampa Bay area head-on, but suddenly turned and smashed into Punta Gorda. That was in 2004, when we were hit with the triple whammy of Charley, Frances and Jeanne. The important thing is to be prepared. We should all know about the standard things to keep non-perishable foods, water, flashlights and batteries, a battery-powered radio, etc. Just make sure youre ready to follow the paths of storms, and remember, most tracking coordinates only indicate the center of the storm. Damaging winds and rain can venture hundred of miles from the main path. The Atlantic hurricane season started this week, June 1. Earlier this week, we awoke to find a disturbance in the Gulf that was to move over Florida and create heavy rains. At least it wasnt supposed to produce hurricane-force winds. Lets hope our summer and fall are just as calm. But just in case, be ready. Then you can just sit back and calmly watch those trees blow past your house. However, if you have any 10-year-olds living with you, dont let them watch. It will be something that will stay with them a lifetime. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

T hat tropical disturbance, which grew in the Gulf earlier this week, is a reminder that hurricane season is here. Meteorologists are predicting an busier than average Atlantic hurricane season; in other words, between June I and Nov. 30, the weather along the East Coast will be predictably unpredictable. When it comes to hurricane preparedness in Florida, residents are often one of two extremes: those who have experienced the devastation that one of these massive storms can wield, worrying that every thunderstorm might be the big one, and the devil-maycare types who wont leave their house until the roof falls in. Both are understandable. Hurricanes are wicked sea monsters, capable of shifting course quickly, pounding the shores with wind and rain strong enough to knock down power lines, uproot trees and gut buildings. Hurricanes can trigger storm surges, tornadoes and catastrophic flooding. There is nothing like a hurricane to remind us of the power of Mother Nature, and on the Florida Peninsula the seaside blessing on three sides of our geography is also its curse. On the other hand, hurricanes are so common that its easy, particularly for lifelong residents, to develop a ho-hum attitude or even hurricane fatigue. After so many years of rushing to grocery stores, gathering emergency supplies, and for those near the coast, boarding up windows, battening down hatches and sitting in traffic jams on evacuation routes, especially when those evacuation routes bring the vehicles here to Marion County many times only to have a light rain pass through it is tempting to forego all the hassle and sit tight until the last possible moment. For the most peaceful summer possible, we suggest a middle ground is the best approach. This is the ideal time to stock up on batteries, flashlights, and even inexpensive generators. Create an emergency kit with these supplies along with bottled water and non-perishable food items. Store them together in a designated spot in the house and conduct family drills so everyone knows what to do. If youre worried about computer data, back it up regularly onto a thumb drive that can be snatched up on the way out the door in the event of evacuation. Sure, it is inconvenient and annoying to deal with hurricanes. But like sticky summers and bugs, they are part of life in Florida. Make an emergency plan, assemble that kit and when the season comes to an end, donate those canned goods to a food bankjust in time for the holidays.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com on country tunes. Wear your country duds and dance the night away with friends and neighbors. Thanks to Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management, this is a free event for all of our residents but tickets are required. See Geri in the office to get your tickets and sign up because you wont want to miss this always fun night. Now some of you might have guests in town and want to bring them along. The cost for guests 18 and over is $12 while children under 18 are free. Youll need a guest pass from the office along with your tickets so see Geri soon. TriviaOn June 19, at 7 p.m. the big screen will again be filled with questions to challenge our residents. The subject matter will be holidays; the Indy 500 and a bunch of other questions that will challenge and excite our teams. Well maybe not challenge or excite but at least bring a smile or two. Yours truly will be the quiz master and Im hoping for a record turn out that night. Trivia is fun and easy to play. Just come to the clubhouse with a group or by yourself. At the door, youll be charged $1 per person entry fee. Once inside, you will be placed with a team or if you have a team already, youll be with them at a table. Teams are usually made up of three or four people. Each team gets an answer sheet and I will flash the questions on the big screen. At the end, the answer sheets are graded and bragging rights along with small cash prizes are awarded. Bring your own refreshments, liquid and otherwise, and come out to enjoy a night of fun and lackadaisical competition. All proceeds from the night go to the Wounded Warrior Project and thus far, we have contributed over $300 to that charity. Every week more and more people come out to enjoy Trivia; please join us. Blood Donations needed The Big Red Bus will be at Cherrywoods clubhouse on June 25 from 9 a.m. until noon. There is a great need for fresh whole blood so we are hoping for a great response to this opportunity. Summertime is especially difficult for our local blood banks. Many people have returned to the north while others are down here for vacations. Traffic accidents, illness and other tragedies drain the blood banks supply that constantly needs replenishing. If you can donate, please contact Judy Durst at 352-873-7849 to set up an appointment or just stop by during the hours that the bus is here. The professionals drawing blood will get you in and out quickly and almost painlessly. Be a hero; donate blood. Veterans Appreciation dinnerOn Saturday, July 6, the members of our Cherrywood Veterans Club will be honored with a dinner and program.

It is in the area of questions I feel the most inadequate. Maybe it is because I have not heard all the questions yet, but I think I have come close. I should know that any question that comes from my wife has a hidden agenda. Usually, she asks questions that have no answers. Lets go out for lunch today, she said rather chipperly. Experience should have taught me that when she is chipper, I am in trouble, because I am always the chippee. We have, she explained, some gift cards for a restaurant across town. Then she smiled and that should have been a giveaway for me. When you mention lunch, and when you add the word free to it, I lose all sense of proportion and sanity, if I had any. Actually, to be honest about everything, it does not take much to scratch between my ears and get me purring. Then she threw in a perk that sold me completely on the idea. I love perks. Ill drive. When you think you have heard every trick in the book, somebody writes a new book. Usually, I forget some old trick that she has played, and here was an old one she was playing on me again. On the way to the restaurant, I had a little uneasy feeling, but as we sat down and began ordering, all suspicion faded into thin air. It was a scrumptious lunch and we both enjoyed being together, carefree and enjoying the ambiance. When the check came I casually said, You know, we ought to do this more often. She smiled and nodded her head. When we got into the car, she said somewhat nonchalantly, Oh, by the way, since were here I need to run into the mall and pick up an item. When I heard those words, I froze. Not the mall! I hate shopping, especially at the mall. In my mind, the word mall is the acronym for May All Lose their Loot. Since I do not have that much loot to lose, I do not like going into a place designed to relieve me of my loot. Every time I walk down the center of the mall, I feel eyes glaring at me and piercing to the core of my wallet trying to suck out all my money. And, by the way, they take credit cards. Boy, do they take credit cards. When we parked at the mall parking lot, I indicated I would stay in the car and wait for her. Oh, no, she exclaimed, come on in, you need the exercise. Im just going to run in and run out. Here is where the language differential between husbands and wives shows itself. Unless you are familiar with English with a feminine twist, you are going to get trapped every time. For example: when a husband says the word run, he is referring to speed. When his wife uses the same word it means she is going to run into every store in sight within the mall with one agenda, and that is to buy. For which I can say bye-bye to my money. Why dont local universities offer a degree in wifeology? They have degrees in everything else, why not here where it would be most useful. By the time I reach the equivalent of a doctorate in wifeology, I would be too old to do any good with it. Those who insist there is no difference between a man and a woman have never been married to a woman. Husbands get into trouble assuming their wife is just like them and thinks just like them. Exiting the shopping mall my wife looked at me, smiled and said, Now, wasnt that good exercise. I nodded as I walked to the car with both my hands filled with recently purchased items from the shopping mall. Now I know my part of the exercise was hauling her purchases to the car. Halfway to the car I had to stop and catch my breath and wondered if I would really make it to the car. Come on, were done shopping for the day. Lets get to the car. While driving home I was afraid my wife was going to wear out her smile. This has been a great day. Well have to do this more often. Then she began humming a song, I was tricked and I thought I was trick-proof Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE11 O n June 22 you are invited to come to the pool behind the clubhouse for a casual, romantic evening of dancing and pizza. Enjoy the soft breezes of a summer night; listen to the beautiful music played by our favorite deejay, Rich Becotte and enjoy a meal of hot pizza and salad. The cost is only $4 per ticket so see Geri in the office soon as there are a limited number of tickets available. You wont want to miss this night of fun fellowship with your friends and neighbors as they dance and socialize in the quiet comfort of the clubhouse or at pool side. As always you are welcome to bring your own beverages but for those who plan to be poolside, please make sure you dont bring anything in a glass container. Paper or plastic cups are fine. This promises to be a beautiful night of fun; food and entertainment so dont miss out.Food Drive On Thursday, June 20, the Cherrywood Veterans Club is requesting your support. We are conducting a food drive for Ritz House of Ocala. Ritz House is run by the Volunteers of America in conjunction with the Veterans Administration and the Ocala veteran community. Homeless veterans are given the opportunity to get off of the streets and into a comfortable, safe place to stay for upwards of two years. While at the Ritz House, the clients must obey all of the rules including no alcohol or drugs permitted; they must take part in the programs offered and must find work. Counselors work with the various veterans and treat their problems on both a group level and individual case basis. Work programs; educational opportunities; recreational outlets and other therapies are all available thanks to the hard work of the staff and the commitment of the individual veteran. One meal a day is provided by the government for these men and women and the financial support they receive is not only meager, but takes a long time to establish. For that reason, every six months or so, your Cherrywood Veterans Club conducts a food drive to assist Ritz House. Its easy to give to this project. Simply place a bag of non-perishable food or cleaning supplies by your mail box on Thursday, June 20, and our volunteers will come around at 10 a.m. and pick them up. Cleaning supplies including sponges; paper towels; detergents; scouring powders and the like are always needed as those receiving treatment at Ritz House are responsible for keeping their rooms neat and clean. Ritz House is making a Hot Summer Nights on June 22 in Cherrywood Cherrywood John Everlove big difference in the lives of 50 homeless veterans at a time. You can be a huge help in this effort by giving generously to our food drive. Additionally, a vet representative will be at the clubhouse from 9:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Friday and Saturday to accept your items. The veterans thank you for your support. Bocce Ball On Saturday, June 1, the Bocce Ball group met at their new time and day. Bocce players now get together on Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. at the bocce courts behind the clubhouse. Judging from the turn out, everyone seems to have gotten the word of the new schedule. This is a lively group of good people who enjoy not only playing bocce but also sitting around and socializing. Whether you want to learn the game; play the game or just sit around and root for your favorite teams; you are encouraged to come out and join the fun. 100 Days of SummerMonday, June 10, the Cherrywood 100 Days of Summer programs begin with a country style dinner dance. For your dining pleasure, delicious Lees jumbo chicken fingers served with cole slaw and potato salad will be served. Dessert will be fresh watermelon and of course iced tea and lemonade will be available to all. You are always welcome to bring your own beverages if you prefer. Dinner starts at 5:30 and then at 6, Rich Becotte will fire up the music with an emphasis Bocce fans and players.

I think this is her theme song; in fact, I am afraid it is. About half way home, I had a wonderful thought. It was a good day. I can always earn more money, but I can never get another wife quite as nice as the one I have. Then I began humming, Weve only just begun. A verse of Scripture began playing in my mind as we continued our journey home. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:3 KJV). Driving into the driveway, I realized this was not our final destination. God has a wonderful place prepared for those who have put their trust and faith in Him. No tricks about it. The Rev. James L.

we call Israel its past, its present, its people, and above all, what it means. We go together as a community, and it will be the trip of a lifetime, he said, whether youve been to Israel a hundred times or never yet. Dr. Robert Bloom, an industrial psychologist who has been on a number Israel tours, said, We went to places and got to feel things Ive never felt before in Israel. Knowing that I could figuratively almost reach out and touch Abraham, Isaac and Jacob It made the things you read and learn about all so real. Visits to Israels holiest places, including Hevron, city of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, Rachels Tomb and Tzefat contrast with excursions that provide an insiders view of Israels achievements and challenges: an IDF paratrooper base, the Weizmann Institute, the Golan Heights. A visit to the Western Wall creates a time for personal reflection and the opportunity for a bar or bat mitzvah ceremony for those who had not celebrated theirs in the past. A full roster of top-caliber speakers drawn from all walks of Israeli life is made possible through Chabads extensive network of relationships with influential and people, said Rabbi Yossi. Previous year featured talks by Natan Sharansky and Benjamin Netanyahu, Rabbi Adin Even-Yisrael Steinsaltz and Israels chief rabbis, and newsmakers including Knesset members, activists, professors, and heads of Israeli military and intelligence. The trip is sponsored by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI). Describing the trips packed schedule of educational tours of ancient and modern locations, Land & Spirit director Rabbi Boruch Cohen said it would be hard to find the combination of luxury and value that JLI offers in the Land & Spirit Israel Experience. Barry Levin of Longmont, Colorado, is one of the 2012 participants who are planning to join the 2014 trip. Being in our own country, he said, is indescribable. To me its a Jewish experience not Reform, Orthodox, Conservative or anything in between or beyond It was just a fantastic experience. The Land and Spirit Experience will take March 23 April 1, 2014. For information, contact Rabbi Yossi and visit www.landandspirit.org. An optional five-day journey to Poland on the way to the Holy Land is an added feature. Participants will visit Warsaw, Lublin, Krakow, and the Auschwitz and Madanjek concentration camps, the names themselves recalling centuries of Jewish history and tragedy. The group will fly directly to Israel on March 23 to meet up with others. For information, visit www.landandspirit.org/P oland. Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com O ne of the greatest sages of the Jewish people was a man named Akiva ben Joseph. (50 C.E. 135 C.E.) This ignorant shepherd whose formal education did not begin until he was 40, rose to be one of the most important rabbis in Jewish history. The background of his early life is unknown, but traditionally he started learning with rabbis Joshua and Eliezer when he was forty. A legend says that his wealthy father-in-law disinherited his daughter Rachel, because he felt that Akiva, who was an ignorant shepherd when they married, would never amount to anything. Akivas wife, Rachel, stood by his side and encouraged him to study even though it was a great hardship for them. He studied for 12 years and when his wife told him that he could study for another 12 years, he was so encouraged that he continued to do so acquiring 24,000 students to his credit. His scholarship led him into developing thee foundations of the Oral Law, the interpretation of the Torah by the rabbis, which was eventually codified into the Mishnah, a part of the Talmud dealing with Jewish practices and laws and their interpretations. It was also his belief that every letter and word of the Torah had special meaning and it was his life study of the holy text that led him to the interpretations still followed today in traditional Judaism. His students studied with him at his academy in Bene Brak, a place where Jewish scholarship flourished. The story of Rabbi Akiva Judis Journal Judi Siegal Unfortunately, Rabbi Akiva lived in a very oppressive time in Jewish history. The Romans ruled Palestine at the time and it was their intention to subjugate their conquered peoples by suppressing culture and religion. In the case of the Jews, this was most distressing because the Romans passed laws forbidding the teaching of Torah. With education an important part of the Jewish faith, this prohibition was stifling to the religious populace. Rabbi Akiva, at the peril of his life, disobeyed the Romans and continued to study. At this trying time in Jewish history, a man named Bar Kochba arose as a Jewish messiah or King-Messenger. Rabbi Akiva believed that Bar Kochba was the promised leader that would overthrow the Romans and restore Jewish rule to the Holy Land. He saw in Bar Kochba the leadership and military might needed to defeat so strong an enemy. Akivas hopes were dashed when the Bar Kochba revolt was crushed by the fall of Betar, the rebel stronghold near Jerusalem in 135 C.E. It was not until modern times, when the State of Israel was created in 1948, were the Jews masters of their own fate in their own land. Akiva continued to teach Torah and Jewish law to his students in defiance of the Roman law. He was eventually captured and imprisoned. Even when incarcerated, he continued to study and teach. He was one of 10 martyrs cruelly put to death by the Romans for teaching Judaism and he and the other rabbis who met the same fate are remembered on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year, in a special service which honors martyrs. Tradition has it that Rabbi Akiva was tortured by the Romans by using an iron comb to scrape his flesh. Just before he died, he tells his students that all his life he had wanted to fulfill the tenets of the Shema, a prayer that expresses the oneness of God and the commandment to love God with all ones being and heart. Even in great pain, Rabbi Akiva saw his martyrdom as fulfillment of this commandment. Thus ended the life of one of Judaisms greatest sages. In March of 2014, Chabad of Marion County, led by Rabbi Yossi Hecht, will join other Chabad groups on the fourth Land and Spirit trip, described as a journey into the heart and soul of the Land of Israel. New this year, some participants will add an optional excursion to Poland before joining the rest of the group in Israel. In 2013, the name of the trip was changed to The Land & the Spirit Israel Experience. Its not really a mission, explained Rabbi Yossi. Some trips are designed to showcase a particular organizations accomplishments and encourage participation in their cause, but that isnt our purpose. The Land & the Spirit is all about exploring and experiencing the essence of this place Chabad plans VIP Israel Experience March 2014 tive or extremely active 2013 hurricane season. These are: A continuation of the atmospheric climate pattern, which includes a strong west African monsoon, that is responsible for the ongoing era of high activity for Atlantic hurricanes that began in 1995; Warmer-than-average water temperatures in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea; and El Nio is not expected to develop and suppress hurricane formation. This year, oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the Atlantic basin are expected to produce more and stronger hurricanes, said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. These conditions include weaker wind shear, warmer Atlantic waters and conducive winds patterns coming from Africa. NOAAs seasonal hurricane outlook is not a hurricane landfall forecast; it does not predict how many storms will hit land or where a storm will strike. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts will be provided throughout the season by NOAAs National Hurricane Center. New for this hurricane season are improvements to forecast models, data gathering, and the National Hurricane Center communication procedure for post-tropical cyclones. In July, NOAA plans to bring online a new supercomputer that will run an upgraded Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) model that provides significantly enhanced depiction of storm structure and improved storm intensity forecast guidance. Also this year, Doppler radar data will be transmitted in real time from NOAAs Hurricane Hunter aircraft. This will help forecasters better analyze rapidly evolving storm conditions, and these data could further improve the HWRF model forecasts by 10 to 15 percent. The National Weather Service has also made changes to allow for hurricane warnings to remain in effect, or to be newly issued, for storms like Sandy that have become post-tropical. This flexibility allows forecasters to provide a continuous flow of forecast and warning information for evolving or continuing threats. The start of hurricane season is a reminder that our families, businesses and communities need to be ready for the next big storm, said Joe Nimmich, FEMA associate administrator for Response and Recovery. Preparedness today can make a big difference down the line, so update your family emergency plan and make sure your emergency kit is stocked. Learn more about how you can prepare for hurricane season at www.ready.gov/hurricanes.. STORMSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The Atlantic Hurricane season starts on June 1 each year. Here are some facts about hurricanes as compiled by hurricane-facts.com. The word hurricane comes from the Taino Native American word, hurucane, meaning evil spirit of the wind. The first time anyone flew into a hurricane happened in 1943 in the middle of World War II. A tropical storm is classified as a hurricane once winds goes up to 74 miles per hour or higher. Hurricanes are the only weather disasters that have been given their own names (The Weather Channel tried naming winter storms this past year, but it didnt seem to catch on with other news agencies). All hurricanes begin life in a warm moist atmosphere over tropical ocean waters. A typical hurricane can dump 6 inches to a foot of rain in a region. The most violent winds and heaviest rains take place in the eye wall, the ring of clouds and thunderstorms closely surrounding the eye. Every second, a large hurricane releases the energy of 10 atomic bombs. Hurricanes can also produce tornadoes. They are not as strong as regular tornadoes and last only a few minutes. Slow moving hurricanes produce more rainfall and can cause more damage from flooding than fastermoving, more powerful hurricanes. Hurricane Floyd was barely a category I hurricane, but it still managed to mow down 19 million trees and caused over a billion dollars in damage. Most people who die in hurricanes are killed by the walls of sea water that comes inland. In the Pacific Ocean, Hurricanes are generally known as typhoons. In the Indian Ocean they are called tropical cyclones. The man who first gave names to hurricanes was an Australian weather forecaster named C. Wragge in the early 1900s. The first hurricane of the year is given a name beginning with the letter A. Hurricane season is from June to November when the seas are at their warmest and most humid, which are ripe conditions for a hurricane to develop. The planet Jupiter has a hurricane which has been going on for over 300 years. It can be seen as a red spot on the planet.

PAID ADVERTISEMENT Hearing and Hearing Aids 101 Hearing is a complicated process that not only involves the ears and the complex parts of them, but also involves the nervous system and the part of the brain that receives and interprets the sounds, which is an important part of the auditory process. When you hear sounds, they go through the ear at the beginning of the hearing process and travel through the nervous system to the part of the brain that hears the sounds, and figures out what it is. As your hearing loss gets worse, these other parts of the system start to lose their ability to function as well, which is why it is important to get hearing loss remedied. Auditory deprivation can occur over a period of time where the brain no longer receives enough sound stimulation to work properly, making it harder for you to recognize sounds even after you have gotten hearing aids, sometimes, if you have been hard of hearing for a long time. Many times, this is caused from auditory deprivation and it is a case where the process gets weaker through lack of use for so long. If you think about auditory deprivation as similar to a body where you have not had much exercise or movement for a while, you can have all kinds of aches and pains trying to get back in shape. When the brain has been deprived of sound for so long, it will have a hard time getting back into shape to recognize them the way it once did. Sometimes, people will try to get by with one hearing aid instead of purchasing the two they really need. Not only can this make it difficult to figure out what side of the room that sounds are coming from, but it can still cause auditory deprivation, as it applies to the ear that does not have sound coming through the process. It is like you are depriving that section of the auditory process from any exercise, but putting more effort on the other side of the auditory system to compensate. Over the long run, auditory deprivation will set in or you are going to need to have your other hearing aid at full power which will cause feedback and squealing trying to compensate for this condition. Because you were meant to use both ears to hear with, it is advisable that you get hearing aids for both ears when you experience hearing loss, especially if it is due to aging. This is not necessarily the case if it was For consumers about to make a hearing aid purchase, and anyone interested in learning about hearing. Friday, June 7 Tuesday, June 11 10:30 a.m. 3:30 p.m. Improve Hearing by Avoiding Auditory Deprivation from a situational hearing loss situation, where only one ear was affected. Auditory deprivation will not occur because the other ear is still working through the hearing process and that section of the brain is still processing sounds. It is important to understand that hearing aids wont restore lost hearing, but it can keep the hearing you have from deteriorating as quickly, which can be important. There is no sense in losing your ability to hear when there are aids to improve your quality of life and help the condition from getting worse. Call Now! Spots Are Limited.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com T he Association of Marion Landing Owners Inc. held a special meeting on Friday, May 24, to elect a successor director to its Board of Directors. One candidate, John Alderson, was elected to fill the vacancy on the Board. He joins Bob Fink, Joe Raffony, Connie Rowe, and Bill Wurst on the Board of Directors. Johns term of office will expire at the Annual Meeting to be held in November 2014. The Board held its organizational meeting immediately after the Special Members Meeting and elected the following officers: Joe Raffony, president; Bob Fink, first vice president; John Alderson, second vice president; Bill Wurst, treasurer; and Connie Rowe, secretary. Memorial Day programMarion Landing veterans met at the Administration Building at 9:45 a.m. on Monday, May 27, and were led to the Lifestyle Center by Bagpiper John Earl for a very special Memorial Day program. The program began at 10 a.m. at the flagpole in front of the Lifestyle Center and was attended by many of our veterans and community members, including Jeanne Waite and Tom Stapleton, WWII veterans who recently travelled on the last Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. Ken Talbert (U.S. Navy) began the program with the Pledge of Allegiance and the poem Remembering. Sharon Talbert led the group in singing our National Anthem, and Art Leveredge (WWII, U.S. Army Air Corp.) placed a memorial wreath by the Marion Landing Veterans memorial marker. John Earl then played a number of selections as the group proceeded into the Lifestyle Center for the remainder of the ceremony. There, retired Pastor Conard Chambers gave the invocation; pianist John Kalivoda accompanied the singing of various patriotic songs, including anthems for each branch of the service; there were several readings by Sharon Talbert and Ray Kmoch (U.S. Air Force); and Charlie Mock read an original poem by resident Ken Hall. Bugler Neil Williams (U.S. Navy) ended the program with Taps. It was such a pleasure to do this for our veterans, said Sharon Talbert, who along with her husband, Ken, planned the event. Thanks go to Pat Wurst, Fran Szutar and Bonnie Heinrich for serving refreshments, and to Harry Therien for being our resident photographer. His photos of this event are on display in the clubhouse. Many compliments and thanks especially go to Sharon and Ken for organizing this event and making this Memorial Day special for so many of our veterans.

Memorial Day programMarion Landing veterans met at the Administration Building at 9:45 a.m. on Monday, May 27, and were led to the Lifestyle Center by Bagpiper John Earl for a very special Memorial Day program. The program began at 10 a.m. at the flagpole in front of the Lifestyle Center and was attended by many of our veterans and community members, including Jeanne Waite and Tom Stapleton, WWII veterans who recently travelled on the last Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. Ken Talbert (U.S. Navy) began the program with the Pledge of Allegiance and the poem Remembering. Sharon Talbert led the group in singing our National Anthem, and Art Leveredge (WWII, U.S. Army Air Corp.) placed a memorial wreath by the Marion Landing Veterans memorial marker. John Earl then played a number of selections as the group proceeded into the Lifestyle Center for the remainder of the ceremony. There, retired Pastor Conard Chambers gave the invocation; pianist John Kalivoda accompanied the singing of various patriotic songs, including anthems for each branch of the service; there were several readings by Sharon Talbert and Ray Kmoch (U.S. Air Force); and Charlie Mock read an original poem by resident Ken Hall. Bugler Neil Williams (U.S. Navy) ended the program with Taps. It was such a pleasure to do this for our veterans, said Sharon Talbert, who along with her husband, Ken, planned the event. Thanks go to Pat Wurst, Fran Szutar and Bonnie Heinrich for serving refreshments, and to Harry Therien for being our resident photographer. His photos of this event are on display in the clubhouse.

PAID ADVERTISEMENT Hearing and Hearing Aids 101 Hearing is a complicated process that not only involves the ears and the complex parts of them, but also involves the nervous system and the part of the brain that receives and interprets the sounds, which is an important part of the auditory process. When you hear sounds, they go through the ear at the beginning of the hearing process and travel through the nervous system to the part of the brain that hears the sounds, and figures out what it is. As your hearing loss gets worse, these other parts of the system start to lose their ability to function as well, which is why it is important to get hearing loss remedied. Auditory deprivation can occur over a period of time where the brain no longer receives enough sound stimulation to work properly, making it harder for you to recognize sounds even after you have gotten hearing aids, sometimes, if you have been hard of hearing for a long time. Many times, this is caused from auditory deprivation and it is a case where the process gets weaker through lack of use for so long. If you think about auditory deprivation as similar to a body where you have not had much exercise or movement for a while, you can have all kinds of aches and pains trying to get back in shape. When the brain has been deprived of sound for so long, it will have a hard time getting back into shape to recognize them the way it once did. Sometimes, people will try to get by with one hearing aid instead of purchasing the two they really need. Not only can this make it difficult to figure out what side of the room that sounds are coming from, but it can still cause auditory deprivation, as it applies to the ear that does not have sound coming through the process. It is like you are depriving that section of the auditory process from any exercise, but putting more effort on the other side of the auditory system to compensate. Over the long run, auditory deprivation will set in or you are going to need to have your other hearing aid at full power which will cause feedback and squealing trying to compensate for this condition. Because you were meant to use both ears to hear with, it is advisable that you get hearing aids for both ears when you experience hearing loss, especially if it is due to aging. This is not necessarily the case if it was For consumers about to make a hearing aid purchase, and anyone interested in learning about hearing. Friday, June 7 Tuesday, June 11 10:30 a.m. 3:30 p.m. Improve Hearing by Avoiding Auditory Deprivation from a situational hearing loss situation, where only one ear was affected. Auditory deprivation will not occur because the other ear is still working through the hearing process and that section of the brain is still processing sounds. It is important to understand that hearing aids wont restore lost hearing, but it can keep the hearing you have from deteriorating as quickly, which can be important. There is no sense in losing your ability to hear when there are aids to improve your quality of life and help the condition from getting worse. Call Now! Spots Are Limited.

we call Israel its past, its present, its people, and above all, what it means. We go together as a community, and it will be the trip of a lifetime, he said, whether youve been to Israel a hundred times or never yet. Dr. Robert Bloom, an industrial psychologist who has been on a number Israel tours, said, We went to places and got to feel things Ive never felt before in Israel. Knowing that I could figuratively almost reach out and touch Abraham, Isaac and Jacob It made the things you read and learn about all so real. Visits to Israels holiest places, including Hevron, city of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, Rachels Tomb and Tzefat contrast with excursions that provide an insiders view of Israels achievements and challenges: an IDF paratrooper base, the Weizmann Institute, the Golan Heights. A visit to the Western Wall creates a time for personal reflection and the opportunity for a bar or bat mitzvah ceremony for those who had not celebrated theirs in the past. A full roster of top-caliber speakers drawn from all walks of Israeli life is made possible through Chabads extensive network of relationships with influential and people, said Rabbi Yossi. Previous year featured talks by Natan Sharansky and Benjamin Netanyahu, Rabbi Adin Even-Yisrael Steinsaltz and Israels chief rabbis, and newsmakers including Knesset members, activists, professors, and heads of Israeli military and intelligence. The trip is sponsored by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI). Describing the trips packed schedule of educational tours of ancient and modern locations, Land & Spirit director Rabbi Boruch Cohen said it would be hard to find the combination of luxury and value that JLI offers in the Land & Spirit Israel Experience. Barry Levin of Longmont, Colorado, is one of the 2012 participants who are planning to join the 2014 trip. Being in our own country, he said, is indescribable. To me its a Jewish experience not Reform, Orthodox, Conservative or anything in between or beyond It was just a fantastic experience. The Land and Spirit Experience will take March 23 April 1, 2014. For information, contact Rabbi Yossi and visit www.landandspirit.org. An optional five-day journey to Poland on the way to the Holy Land is an added feature. Participants will visit Warsaw, Lublin, Krakow, and the Auschwitz and Madanjek concentration camps, the names themselves recalling centuries of Jewish history and tragedy. The group will fly directly to Israel on March 23 to meet up with others. For information, visit www.landandspirit.org/P oland. Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12 ~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com O ne of the greatest sages of the Jewish people was a man named Akiva ben Joseph. (50 C.E. 135 C.E.) This ignorant shepherd whose formal education did not begin until he was 40, rose to be one of the most important rabbis in Jewish history. The background of his early life is unknown, but traditionally he started learning with rabbis Joshua and Eliezer when he was forty. A legend says that his wealthy father-in-law disinherited his daughter Rachel, because he felt that Akiva, who was an ignorant shepherd when they married, would never amount to anything. Akivas wife, Rachel, stood by his side and encouraged him to study even though it was a great hardship for them. He studied for 12 years and when his wife told him that he could study for another 12 years, he was so encouraged that he continued to do so acquiring 24,000 students to his credit. His scholarship led him into developing thee foundations of the Oral Law, the interpretation of the Torah by the rabbis, which was eventually codified into the Mishnah, a part of the Talmud dealing with Jewish practices and laws and their interpretations. It was also his belief that every letter and word of the Torah had special meaning and it was his life study of the holy text that led him to the interpretations still followed today in traditional Judaism. His students studied with him at his academy in Bene Brak, a place where Jewish scholarship flourished. The story of Rabbi Akiva Judis Journal Judi Siegal Unfortunately, Rabbi Akiva lived in a very oppressive time in Jewish history. The Romans ruled Palestine at the time and it was their intention to subjugate their conquered peoples by suppressing culture and religion. In the case of the Jews, this was most distressing because the Romans passed laws forbidding the teaching of Torah. With education an important part of the Jewish faith, this prohibition was stifling to the religious populace. Rabbi Akiva, at the peril of his life, disobeyed the Romans and continued to study. At this trying time in Jewish history, a man named Bar Kochba arose as a Jewish messiah or King-Messenger. Rabbi Akiva believed that Bar Kochba was the promised leader that would overthrow the Romans and restore Jewish rule to the Holy Land. He saw in Bar Kochba the leadership and military might needed to defeat so strong an enemy. Akivas hopes were dashed when the Bar Kochba revolt was crushed by the fall of Betar, the rebel stronghold near Jerusalem in 135 C.E. It was not until modern times, when the State of Israel was created in 1948, were the Jews masters of their own fate in their own land. Akiva continued to teach Torah and Jewish law to his students in defiance of the Roman law. He was eventually captured and imprisoned. Even when incarcerated, he continued to study and teach. He was one of 10 martyrs cruelly put to death by the Romans for teaching Judaism and he and the other rabbis who met the same fate are remembered on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year, in a special service which honors martyrs. Tradition has it that Rabbi Akiva was tortured by the Romans by using an iron comb to scrape his flesh. Just before he died, he tells his students that all his life he had wanted to fulfill the tenets of the Shema, a prayer that expresses the oneness of God and the commandment to love God with all ones being and heart. Even in great pain, Rabbi Akiva saw his martyrdom as fulfillment of this commandment. Thus ended the life of one of Judaisms greatest sages. In March of 2014, Chabad of Marion County, led by Rabbi Yossi Hecht, will join other Chabad groups on the fourth Land and Spirit trip, described as a journey into the heart and soul of the Land of Israel. New this year, some participants will add an optional excursion to Poland before joining the rest of the group in Israel. In 2013, the name of the trip was changed to The Land & the Spirit Israel Experience. Its not really a mission, explained Rabbi Yossi. Some trips are designed to showcase a particular organizations accomplishments and encourage participation in their cause, but that isnt our purpose. The Land & the Spirit is all about exploring and experiencing the essence of this place Chabad plans VIP Israel Experience March 2014 tive or extremely active 2013 hurricane season. These are: A continuation of the atmospheric climate pattern, which includes a strong west African monsoon, that is responsible for the ongoing era of high activity for Atlantic hurricanes that began in 1995; Warmer-than-average water temperatures in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea; and El Nio is not expected to develop and suppress hurricane formation. This year, oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the Atlantic basin are expected to produce more and stronger hurricanes, said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. These conditions include weaker wind shear, warmer Atlantic waters and conducive winds patterns coming from Africa. NOAAs seasonal hurricane outlook is not a hurricane landfall forecast; it does not predict how many storms will hit land or where a storm will strike. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts will be provided throughout the season by NOAAs National Hurricane Center. New for this hurricane season are improvements to forecast models, data gathering, and the National Hurricane Center communication procedure for post-tropical cyclones. In July, NOAA plans to bring online a new supercomputer that will run an upgraded Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) model that provides significantly enhanced depiction of storm structure and improved storm intensity forecast guidance. Also this year, Doppler radar data will be transmitted in real time from NOAAs Hurricane Hunter aircraft. This will help forecasters better analyze rapidly evolving storm conditions, and these data could further improve the HWRF model forecasts by 10 to 15 percent. The National Weather Service has also made changes to allow for hurricane warnings to remain in effect, or to be newly issued, for storms like Sandy that have become post-tropical. This flexibility allows forecasters to provide a continuous flow of forecast and warning information for evolving or continuing threats. The start of hurricane season is a reminder that our families, businesses and communities need to be ready for the next big storm, said Joe Nimmich, FEMA associate administrator for Response and Recovery. Preparedness today can make a big difference down the line, so update your family emergency plan and make sure your emergency kit is stocked. Learn more about how you can prepare for hurricane season at www.ready.gov/hurricanes.. STORMSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The Atlantic Hurricane season starts on June 1 each year. Here are some facts about hurricanes as compiled by hurricane-facts.com. The word hurricane comes from the Taino Native American word, hurucane, meaning evil spirit of the wind. The first time anyone flew into a hurricane happened in 1943 in the middle of World War II. A tropical storm is classified as a hurricane once winds goes up to 74 miles per hour or higher. Hurricanes are the only weather disasters that have been given their own names (The Weather Channel tried naming winter storms this past year, but it didnt seem to catch on with other news agencies). All hurricanes begin life in a warm moist atmosphere over tropical ocean waters. A typical hurricane can dump 6 inches to a foot of rain in a region. The most violent winds and heaviest rains take place in the eye wall, the ring of clouds and thunderstorms closely surrounding the eye. Every second, a large hurricane releases the energy of 10 atomic bombs. Hurricanes can also produce tornadoes. They are not as strong as regular tornadoes and last only a few minutes. Slow moving hurricanes produce more rainfall and can cause more damage from flooding than fastermoving, more powerful hurricanes. Hurricane Floyd was barely a category I hurricane, but it still managed to mow down 19 million trees and caused over a billion dollars in damage. Most people who die in hurricanes are killed by the walls of sea water that comes inland. In the Pacific Ocean, Hurricanes are generally known as typhoons. In the Indian Ocean they are called tropical cyclones. The man who first gave names to hurricanes was an Australian weather forecaster named C. Wragge in the early 1900s. The first hurricane of the year is given a name beginning with the letter A. Hurricane season is from June to November when the seas are at their warmest and most humid, which are ripe conditions for a hurricane to develop. The planet Jupiter has a hurricane which has been going on for over 300 years. It can be seen as a red spot on the planet.

I think this is her theme song; in fact, I am afraid it is. About half way home, I had a wonderful thought. It was a good day. I can always earn more money, but I can never get another wife quite as nice as the one I have. Then I began humming, Weve only just begun. A verse of Scripture began playing in my mind as we continued our journey home. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:3 KJV). Driving into the driveway, I realized this was not our final destination. God has a wonderful place prepared for those who have put their trust and faith in Him. No tricks about it. The Rev. James L.

It is in the area of questions I feel the most inadequate. Maybe it is because I have not heard all the questions yet, but I think I have come close. I should know that any question that comes from my wife has a hidden agenda. Usually, she asks questions that have no answers. Lets go out for lunch today, she said rather chipperly. Experience should have taught me that when she is chipper, I am in trouble, because I am always the chippee. We have, she explained, some gift cards for a restaurant across town. Then she smiled and that should have been a giveaway for me. When you mention lunch, and when you add the word free to it, I lose all sense of proportion and sanity, if I had any. Actually, to be honest about everything, it does not take much to scratch between my ears and get me purring. Then she threw in a perk that sold me completely on the idea. I love perks. Ill drive. When you think you have heard every trick in the book, somebody writes a new book. Usually, I forget some old trick that she has played, and here was an old one she was playing on me again. On the way to the restaurant, I had a little uneasy feeling, but as we sat down and began ordering, all suspicion faded into thin air. It was a scrumptious lunch and we both enjoyed being together, carefree and enjoying the ambiance. When the check came I casually said, You know, we ought to do this more often. She smiled and nodded her head. When we got into the car, she said somewhat nonchalantly, Oh, by the way, since were here I need to run into the mall and pick up an item. When I heard those words, I froze. Not the mall! I hate shopping, especially at the mall. In my mind, the word mall is the acronym for May All Lose their Loot. Since I do not have that much loot to lose, I do not like going into a place designed to relieve me of my loot. Every time I walk down the center of the mall, I feel eyes glaring at me and piercing to the core of my wallet trying to suck out all my money. And, by the way, they take credit cards. Boy, do they take credit cards. When we parked at the mall parking lot, I indicated I would stay in the car and wait for her. Oh, no, she exclaimed, come on in, you need the exercise. Im just going to run in and run out. Here is where the language differential between husbands and wives shows itself. Unless you are familiar with English with a feminine twist, you are going to get trapped every time. For example: when a husband says the word run, he is referring to speed. When his wife uses the same word it means she is going to run into every store in sight within the mall with one agenda, and that is to buy. For which I can say bye-bye to my money. Why dont local universities offer a degree in wifeology? They have degrees in everything else, why not here where it would be most useful. By the time I reach the equivalent of a doctorate in wifeology, I would be too old to do any good with it. Those who insist there is no difference between a man and a woman have never been married to a woman. Husbands get into trouble assuming their wife is just like them and thinks just like them. Exiting the shopping mall my wife looked at me, smiled and said, Now, wasnt that good exercise. I nodded as I walked to the car with both my hands filled with recently purchased items from the shopping mall. Now I know my part of the exercise was hauling her purchases to the car. Halfway to the car I had to stop and catch my breath and wondered if I would really make it to the car. Come on, were done shopping for the day. Lets get to the car. While driving home I was afraid my wife was going to wear out her smile. This has been a great day. Well have to do this more often. Then she began humming a song, I was tricked and I thought I was trick-proof Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER PAGE11 O n June 22 you are invited to come to the pool behind the clubhouse for a casual, romantic evening of dancing and pizza. Enjoy the soft breezes of a summer night; listen to the beautiful music played by our favorite deejay, Rich Becotte and enjoy a meal of hot pizza and salad. The cost is only $4 per ticket so see Geri in the office soon as there are a limited number of tickets available. You wont want to miss this night of fun fellowship with your friends and neighbors as they dance and socialize in the quiet comfort of the clubhouse or at pool side. As always you are welcome to bring your own beverages but for those who plan to be poolside, please make sure you dont bring anything in a glass container. Paper or plastic cups are fine. This promises to be a beautiful night of fun; food and entertainment so dont miss out.Food Drive On Thursday, June 20, the Cherrywood Veterans Club is requesting your support. We are conducting a food drive for Ritz House of Ocala. Ritz House is run by the Volunteers of America in conjunction with the Veterans Administration and the Ocala veteran community. Homeless veterans are given the opportunity to get off of the streets and into a comfortable, safe place to stay for upwards of two years. While at the Ritz House, the clients must obey all of the rules including no alcohol or drugs permitted; they must take part in the programs offered and must find work. Counselors work with the various veterans and treat their problems on both a group level and individual case basis. Work programs; educational opportunities; recreational outlets and other therapies are all available thanks to the hard work of the staff and the commitment of the individual veteran. One meal a day is provided by the government for these men and women and the financial support they receive is not only meager, but takes a long time to establish. For that reason, every six months or so, your Cherrywood Veterans Club conducts a food drive to assist Ritz House. Its easy to give to this project. Simply place a bag of non-perishable food or cleaning supplies by your mail box on Thursday, June 20, and our volunteers will come around at 10 a.m. and pick them up. Cleaning supplies including sponges; paper towels; detergents; scouring powders and the like are always needed as those receiving treatment at Ritz House are responsible for keeping their rooms neat and clean. Ritz House is making a Hot Summer Nights on June 22 in Cherrywood Cherrywood John Everlove big difference in the lives of 50 homeless veterans at a time. You can be a huge help in this effort by giving generously to our food drive. Additionally, a vet representative will be at the clubhouse from 9:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Friday and Saturday to accept your items. The veterans thank you for your support. Bocce Ball On Saturday, June 1, the Bocce Ball group met at their new time and day. Bocce players now get together on Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. at the bocce courts behind the clubhouse. Judging from the turn out, everyone seems to have gotten the word of the new schedule. This is a lively group of good people who enjoy not only playing bocce but also sitting around and socializing. Whether you want to learn the game; play the game or just sit around and root for your favorite teams; you are encouraged to come out and join the fun. 100 Days of SummerMonday, June 10, the Cherrywood 100 Days of Summer programs begin with a country style dinner dance. For your dining pleasure, delicious Lees jumbo chicken fingers served with cole slaw and potato salad will be served.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com on country tunes. Wear your country duds and dance the night away with friends and neighbors. Thanks to Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management, this is a free event for all of our residents but tickets are required. See Geri in the office to get your tickets and sign up because you wont want to miss this always fun night. Now some of you might have guests in town and want to bring them along. The cost for guests 18 and over is $12 while children under 18 are free. Youll need a guest pass from the office along with your tickets so see Geri soon. TriviaOn June 19, at 7 p.m. the big screen will again be filled with questions to challenge our residents. The subject matter will be holidays; the Indy 500 and a bunch of other questions that will challenge and excite our teams. Well maybe not challenge or excite but at least bring a smile or two. Yours truly will be the quiz master and Im hoping for a record turn out that night. Trivia is fun and easy to play. Just come to the clubhouse with a group or by yourself. At the door, youll be charged $1 per person entry fee. Once inside, you will be placed with a team or if you have a team already, youll be with them at a table. Teams are usually made up of three or four people. Each team gets an answer sheet and I will flash the questions on the big screen. At the end, the answer sheets are graded and bragging rights along with small cash prizes are awarded. Bring your own refreshments, liquid and otherwise, and come out to enjoy a night of fun and lackadaisical competition. All proceeds from the night go to the Wounded Warrior Project and thus far, we have contributed over $300 to that charity. Every week more and more people come out to enjoy Trivia; please join us. Blood Donations needed The Big Red Bus will be at Cherrywoods clubhouse on June 25 from 9 a.m. until noon. There is a great need for fresh whole blood so we are hoping for a great response to this opportunity. Summertime is especially difficult for our local blood banks. Many people have returned to the north while others are down here for vacations. Traffic accidents, illness and other tragedies drain the blood banks supply that constantly needs replenishing. If you can donate, please contact Judy Durst at 352-873-7849 to set up an appointment or just stop by during the hours that the bus is here. The professionals drawing blood will get you in and out quickly and almost painlessly. Be a hero; donate blood.

This year we will be sharing a chicken and ribs dinner specially cooked by Taste Budz on their own open grill. Side dishes will accompany the main course, of course.

Tickets are only $3 for our vets and their spouses and $7 for all others. We are looking forward to some great food; excellent entertainment and for the opportunity to express our appreciation to all of our veterans. Come join us for a very special evening.Cribbage ClubMondays at 12:30 in the clubhouse card room join the Cherrywood cribbage players as they learn; play; improve their cribbage skills and give each other some good natured kidding. This is a fun group that enjoys the game and is anxious to teach others how to play. If you have any interest at all, please join us. Youll be glad you did. Garden ClubThere will be no Garden Club meetings through the summer months. Last week I erroneously reported that they would be having a meeting in June.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, June 7, 2013 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen Republicans are upset about President Obamas May 23 foreign-policy address, yet politics aside, its hard to say why. We show this lack of resolve, talking about the war being over, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Fox News Sunday. But four days later in his Memorial Day remarks, Obama said, Our nation is still at war. Why did the earlier speech set off Republicans? He acknowledged that terrorism can never be completely eliminated and that a risk-free society is impossible. He conceded that U.S. military action breeds enemies. He admitted that not every foreign violent organization is a threat to Americans. He even quoted James Madison: No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare. Indeed, Obama said some things that need saying, but will he do what needs doing? More precisely, will he stop doing what shouldnt be done? The speech provides no reason for optimism. For one thing, his premise is wrong: The U.S. government was on a perpetual war footing before the attacks of 9/11, intervening one way or another in many places. The war on terror has just been more visible. Obama says he wants to understand the roots of terrorism, but he just repeats bromides. These threats dont arise in a vacuum, he said. Most, though not all, of the terrorism we face is fueled by a common ideology a belief by some extremists that Islam is in conflict with the United States and the West. But this implies the extremist ideology arose in a vacuum. Obama shows no understanding that Muslim violence has been a response to generations of Western and most recently American efforts to maintain hegemony in the Muslim world. These efforts have consisted in direct overt and covert intervention, backing for brutal and corrupt dictators and monarchs, and enabling of Israels repression of the Palestinians. From Osama bin Laden on down, the perpetrators of anti-American violence have consistently said so. Despite Obamas acknowledgement of the dangers, to Americans and others, of perpetual U.S. warfare, one strains to find signs of change in the speech. He says our response to terrorism cant depend on military or law enforcement alone, but he still envisions a large role for the military: He says the first order of business is to finish the work of defeating al Qaeda and its associated forces. And, Beyond the Afghan theater, we only target al Qaeda and its associated forces. But its associated forces is a conveniently vague justification for continued U.S. militarism. It goes beyond Congresss 2001 authorization for military force. While Obama promises only to narrow the use of drones and shift responsibility from the CIA to the Pentagon, we cant be sure even this will happen or matter. His presidential policy guidance is classified, and he reserves the authority to target alleged militants who pose a continuing and imminent threat when he decides that other alternatives are unavailable or are too risky. Yet his administration has drained the word imminent of meaning Before any strike is taken, he added, there must be near-certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured the highest standard we can set. But he conceded that his administration has killed an undisclosed number of noncombatants. Independent sources say several hundred have been killed while entire villages live in terror of the next strike. This will not change. Remember that administration targets are only accused of planning attacks. There is no due process, and an oversight board would not change that. Obama defended his killing of American Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen on the grounds that alAwlaki had helped plan attacks, but Obama offered no proof, and investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill says the first efforts to kill Awlaki preceded the terrorist plots he is allegedly linked to. And what about the separate drone killings of al-Awlakis 16-year-old son and other Americans? Obama also renewed his longdormant call for closing Guantanamo but not before the mass hunger strike and force-feedings that the whole world is watching. This all looks more like legacy preparation than real change in policy. Witness Syria and Iran. So why are Republicans fussing? Obama said, We cannot use force everywhere that a radical ideology takes root. For Republicans, thats unAmerican. Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). M y first encounter with a hurricane, that I remember, was in 1954. We had just moved to a house on a hill in northern New Jersey, a one-story with a basement, facing west. I remember hearing about this storm called Hazel that was cutting across the northeast on its way to Canada, after starting in Haiti where it killed 1,000 people. At that point, I had no idea where Haiti was, but I didnt want something that could kill that many people coming my way. My parents said not to worry, that it was greatly weakened by the time it got to us. I learned a bit about hurricanes then, particularly the fact that the wind comes only from one direction when youre on one side of the storm or another. The wind was brutally strong from the east, but we had our front door open except for the screen door, since we faced west. No air conditioning in those days, incidentally. I sat there fascinated and watched the driving wind and rain, which we seemed to be immune to. But then I saw a tree, about 15 feet tall, blow past the house. Not a branch, mind you, but the whole tree. If I remember right, I went into my room and pulled down the shade. I didnt want to see any more of it. So now Im older and supposedly wiser, and where do I live? Florida, one of the spots where hurricanes strike the U.S. first. My home is surrounded by big trees, too. But in this day and age, we have things like satellite images, constant radar and other tools to tell us when and where a hurricane will strike, and how strong it will be. Most of the time the forecasts are accurate, but occasionally a storm will veer to a new course and surprise people. Just remember Hurricane Charley, which was supposed to hit the Tampa Bay area head-on, but suddenly turned and smashed into Punta Gorda. That was in 2004, when we were hit with the triple whammy of Charley, Frances and Jeanne. The important thing is to be prepared. We should all know about the standard things to keep non-perishable foods, water, flashlights and batteries, a battery-powered radio, etc. Just make sure youre ready to follow the paths of storms, and remember, most tracking coordinates only indicate the center of the storm. Damaging winds and rain can venture hundred of miles from the main path. The Atlantic hurricane season started this week, June 1. Earlier this week, we awoke to find a disturbance in the Gulf that was to move over Florida and create heavy rains. At least it wasnt supposed to produce hurricane-force winds. Lets hope our summer and fall are just as calm. But just in case, be ready. Then you can just sit back and calmly watch those trees blow past your house. However, if you have any 10-year-olds living with you, dont let them watch. It will be something that will stay with them a lifetime. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

T hat tropical disturbance, which grew in the Gulf earlier this week, is a reminder that hurricane season is here. Meteorologists are predicting an busier than average Atlantic hurricane season; in other words, between June I and Nov. 30, the weather along the East Coast will be predictably unpredictable. When it comes to hurricane preparedness in Florida, residents are often one of two extremes: those who have experienced the devastation that one of these massive storms can wield, worrying that every thunderstorm might be the big one, and the devil-maycare types who wont leave their house until the roof falls in. Both are understandable. Hurricanes are wicked sea monsters, capable of shifting course quickly, pounding the shores with wind and rain strong enough to knock down power lines, uproot trees and gut buildings. Hurricanes can trigger storm surges, tornadoes and catastrophic flooding. There is nothing like a hurricane to remind us of the power of Mother Nature, and on the Florida Peninsula the seaside blessing on three sides of our geography is also its curse. On the other hand, hurricanes are so common that its easy, particularly for lifelong residents, to develop a ho-hum attitude or even hurricane fatigue. After so many years of rushing to grocery stores, gathering emergency supplies, and for those near the coast, boarding up windows, battening down hatches and sitting in traffic jams on evacuation routes, especially when those evacuation routes bring the vehicles here to Marion County many times only to have a light rain pass through it is tempting to forego all the hassle and sit tight until the last possible moment. For the most peaceful summer possible, we suggest a middle ground is the best approach. This is the ideal time to stock up on batteries, flashlights, and even inexpensive generators. Create an emergency kit with these supplies along with bottled water and non-perishable food items. Store them together in a designated spot in the house and conduct family drills so everyone knows what to do. If youre worried about computer data, back it up regularly onto a thumb drive that can be snatched up on the way out the door in the event of evacuation. Sure, it is inconvenient and annoying to deal with hurricanes. But like sticky summers and bugs, they are part of life in Florida. Make an emergency plan, assemble that kit and when the season comes to an end, donate those canned goods to a food bankjust in time for the holidays.

Other times when I have great difficulty coming up with an appropriate theme I get a headache. Picking todays theme was easy. This week is National Headache Awareness Week.Party timeA little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, Daddy, you shouldnt wear that suit. And why not, darling? It always gives you a headache next morning. Blonde headacheA blonde went to the doctor to complain about headaches. Noticing she hadnt taken off her headphones at all during the exam, he suggested they might be the cause of her headaches. He told her to take them off. Oh, no. I just couldnt, she said. Without them, Id surely die. Oh, come now, the doctor said, let me help you. And he pulled them off her head. Sure enough, moments later, she was unconscious on the floor. Curious, he picked up the headphones and heard, Breathe in...breathe out...breathe in...breathe out. Splitting thoughts If you have a lot of tension and you get a headache, do what it says on the aspirin bottle: Take two aspirin and Keep away from children. Im as sound as a dollar, but Ill get better. The man had a bad headache and went to the bowling alley. His doctor had told him to go and rest someplace where he could hear a pin drop. The hillbillys wife is a pain in the neck, a real headache who can cause lots of strife. The hillbilly said that he does love her still. When his tractor broke down, a Kansas framer used a rake to gather all his wheat. He said, It caused me my grain headache.

Bee Sting A man came running to the doctor shouting and screaming in pain. Please, doctor, youve got to help me. Ive been stung by a bee! Dont worry, says the doctor. Ill put some cream on it. You will never find that bee. It must be miles away by now. No, you dont understand! answered the doctor. Ill put some cream on the place you were stung. Oh! It happened in the garden behind my house. No, no, no! said the doctor getting frustrated. I mean on the part of your body the bee stung you. On my finger! screamed the man in pain. The bee stung me on my finger. Which one? the doctor asked. How do I know? All the bees looked alike. LetdownA man lay sprawled across three seats in the Ocala theater. When the usher noticed this, he whispered to the man, Sorry, sir, but youre only allowed one seat. The man groaned, but didnt budge. The usher became impatient. Sir, if you dont get up, Im going to have to call the manager. Once again, the man just groaned. When the usher returned with the manager the two of them tried to move the man, but with no success.

Readers can do their part by staying current on local zoning laws, keeping an eye on local wetlands and speaking up if something looks amiss. Potential problems are much easier to resolve early on than after damage is done, so speaking up soon can often lead to more successful and less contentious outcomes. D ear E art hT al k: Wh at is t h e All One Ocean campaign ?--B ill O N eill L os Angeles CA All One Ocean is a non-profit campaign launched in 2010 by long-time author, activist and organizer Hallie Austen Iglehart with the goal of reducing the amount of plastic and other trash that ends up in the ocean where it compromises the health of marine wildlife and ecosystems. Iglehart was incensed to learn that a million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals and turtles die each year from ingesting plastic in the water columnand created All One Ocean to do something about it. Contrary to popular myth that most ocean pollution is oil spilled from ships, most of it is land-based litter. The most dangerous litter is our throw-away plastic because of its longevity and capacity to increase in toxicity, eventually returning to the human food chain in a more lethal form, reports Iglehart. Much of our plastic ends up in the ocean in giant collections of trash called gyres, created by circular ocean currents, she adds. They trap debris for decades where it continues to break into ever smaller, more toxic pieces, never fully biodegrading. Of particular concern to Iglehart is the fact that much of this carelessly discarded plastic winds up in the bellies of marine life, contaminating not just ocean ecosystems but in some cases the very seafood on our dinner plates. The main project of All One Ocean is the creation and maintenance of permanent, community supported Beach Clean Up Stations, which are essentially boxes containing reusable bags for beach visitors to use in picking up trash during their time on the sand and in the surf. The idea is to empty any garbage into a trash can somewhere (so it can find its way to a landfill instead of out into the ocean) and then ideally return the bag empty to the box. Each clean-up station also provides a sign with information on the extent of the problem.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6 ~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Road. All veterans living in Marion County are encouraged to attend this informative and educational free event. Spotlight on Memorial DayUnder the over all command of President Bill Mahar, the Cherrywood Veterans Club hosted the Memorial Day observance for a record number of guests. More than 130 people came to honor those who made the supreme sacrifice in service to their country. The program began with the presentation of colors by the Cherrywood Color Guard. Led by Jerry Moscariello, the detail presented the American Flag by reenacting the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima. Richard Becotte, our resident deejay, provided the music for the day starting with the National Anthem. Many in the crowd spontaneously sang along. Following the National Anthem, Steven Jacobs, retired Navy Chief Petty Officer and director of the Veterans Services Office here in Ocala, gave an inspiring speech on the significance of Memorial Day. He made reference to the fact that while most Americans consider Memorial Day the beginning holiday of the summer; veterans and their families know the real meaning is to honor those who gave their all. It is the veteran, as Chief Jacobs said, that understands the significance of words like sacrifice and service. A salute to the Armed Forces followed Chief Jacobss remarks with a playing of the songs for each of the branches of service; Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine. This too was well received with guests singing and clapping along. Solemnity hushed the crowd as the Honor Detail made their way to the monument for the wreath laying ceremony. As the Navy Hymn played, Ruth Hurley read the names of all 30 of our veterans who have passed away over the years, thus keeping our promise to always remember. Thirty small flags, one for each of our deceased members adorned the monument as this years wreath presenters neared. The Honors Detail was made up of Skip Smith and his wife Trude; accompanied by President William Mahar; Peggy Konar and Bugler Joe Gignac. Skip Smith with assistance from his wife Trude and Peggy Konar, rose from his wheel chair. His courage and commitment inspired every one present as he placed the beautiful floral wreath on its stand in front of the flag pole. Our Color Guard dipped their flags in quiet salute. Everyone else stood at attention and joined the flag bearers in silent tribute to the fallen. The silence of this somber moment was broken by the bitter sweet strains of Taps as it echoed forth across the silent crowd. As the last note died, the Honors Party began to withdraw and the color guard prepared to pass in review. After a short break, at noon exactly, Color Party members, Joe Gignac and Marty Duesel manned the flag pole in preparation for the raising of the flag from half staff to full staff. Again, many of the visitors came out to witness this traditional ceremony and as Rich Becotte sounded the National Anthem, the flag went hurriedly up to its honored place at the top of the pole. Proving that Murphy is alive and well, during this ceremony, the flag came loose from one of its grommets and had to be hastily repaired. Thanks to Fred OHern, and the Color Detail, the flag was quickly secured and was hoisted to its rightful place. Following the service, everyone went into the brightly decorated clubhouse. Patriotic flowers and ribbons; flags and centerpieces were in place thanks to Eve Houghtaling and Ida Mahar. Once the visitors had gone inside, the meal was served. Bill Brotherhood and his group of grill masters had the hamburgers and hot dogs cooked to perfection and ready to serve to the hungry throng. Eve Houghtaling was in charge of the servers and she and her crew managed to feed the record number of visitors in just over a half hour. This was a record time for a record crowd. Our kitchen detail headed by Peggy Konar was outstanding in dishing up potato salad; beans; making sure there were plenty of drinks and keeping the serving line supplied. Both kitchen and serving volunteers worked in perfect harmony making the lines go quickly and smoothly. Trude Smith and Wanda Huff manned the fully stocked dessert table. Cakes, pies, cookies, brownies and mouth watering sweets of every description were brought in by donors to be shared by all. Midge Lee, Bill Spangenberg and Jim Houghtaling sold 50/50 tickets and Joe Gignac collected the meal tickets. As you might imagine, an event of this size and scope does not just happen. Detailed planning and the hard work of our volunteers made this meaningful and touching ceremony and the luncheon that followed possible. We here note and thank our volunteers: Color Guard members taking part, Jerry Moscariello, director; Ken Beech; Marty Duesel; Phil Tatro; Dick Francis; Ray Tafilowski; Linda Sisto; Bernice Hasinec; Donna Moran; Marie Ustianowski; Jan Anderson and Al deLaurentis. Our kitchen crew and cooks included, Peggy Konar, supervisor; Marguerite Fiorenza; Genevieve Downs; with Dick Francis handling the drinks. On the grill Bill Brotherhood headed the team of Al Buechter; Dick Straub; Bill Huff; Herb Neubaur and Jerry Giovanniello. On the serving line, Christl Giovanniello; Sandra Brotherhood; Ruth Hurley; Marti Duesel; and Ida Mahar worked with Eve Houghtaling who directed the team. At 2 oclock, the winners of the raffles and 50/50 drawings were announced. Two gift certificates were awarded; one to Beef OBradys and one to Sammys Restaurant. In addition, a floral display was also given out. Three people were winners of the 50/50 drawings. There was some food left over in spite of the record crowd which showed up for our service; testament that everyone had plenty to eat. Jim & Eve Houghtaling delivered the excess food to the Salvation Army Soup Kitchen in Ocala. The Veterans Club would like to thank all of our volunteers and everyone who took their time to pay respects to those who gave up all their tomorrows for us to have this day.From your reporterIts a busy time here at Cherrywood and summer vacations are upon us.

CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 Update your emergency contact listThe recent disasters in Oklahoma highlighted the need for law enforcement to have access to emergency contact information. Now as Floridians brace for the 2013 Hurricane Season and create disaster preparedness plans, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles encourages you to make sure first responders know who to notify if you are in an emergency situation. The Department offers Emergency Contact Information registration online at https://services.flhsmv.gov/eci/ and in driver license offices (to include driver license offices operated by county tax collectors). Floridians who hold a current driver license or identification card can enter up to two contacts into the ECI database. Even if you have registered your information previously, it is a good idea to update your contacts periodically, especially if you or your contacts have moved. It takes only a few minutes, and there is no fee to register. The information you register is only available to law enforcement officers in the event of an emergency. Registering your emergency contact information can provide families and loved ones with added peace of mind, said DHSMV Executive Director Julie L. Jones. We are pleased that more than 7 million Floridians have registered their contacts, but that leaves nearly 10 million whose contact information is not available to police. The Florida Highway Patrol has run into situations where a person involved in a crash had registered their emergency contact information but failed to update it, said FHP Director Col. David Brierton. Outdated information can significantly delay our efforts to provide quick notification to families and loved ones. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Dear EarthTalk: Why are wetlands so important to preserve? -Patricia Mancuso, Erie, PA Wetlands include swamps, marshes, bogs, riverbanks, mangroves, floodplains, rice fields and anywhere else, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), that saturation with water is the dominant factor determining the nature of soil development and the types of plant and animal communities there. They are widespread in every country and on every continent except Antarctica. If all the worlds wetlands were put together, they would take up an area one-third larger than the United States. Environmentalists, biologists and others concerned about the health of the planet and its inhabitants recognize the key role wetlands play in life on Earth. The EPA points out that, besides containing a disproportionately high number of plant and animal species compared to other land forms, wetlands serve a variety of ecological services including feeding downstream waters, trapping floodwaters, recharging groundwater supplies, removing pollution and providing fish and wildlife habitat. Wetlands can also be key drivers of local economies, given their importance to agriculture, recreation and fishing. According to Wetlands International, a global non-profit dedicated to the conservation and restoration of wetlands around the world, wetlands are on the frontline as development pressures increase everyEARTH TALK Why are wetlands so important? where. Wetlands are vulnerable to over-exploitation due to their abundance of fish, fuel and water, reports the group, which works on the ground in 18 countries to educate the public and policymakers about the health of local wetlands and to advocate for better policies. When they are viewed as unproductive or marginal lands, wetlands are targeted for drainage and conversion. The rate of loss and deterioration of wetlands is accelerating in all regions of the world, the group adds. The pressure on wetlands is likely to intensify in the coming decades due to increased global demand for land and water, as well as climate change. The widespread expansion of development in the U.S. in recent decades has brought the issue of wetlands loss to the forefront of debates on zoning and land use planning. One of the key and underlying issues is concern about endangered species: More than a third of species on the U.S. Endangered Species List live only in wetlands and almost half use them at some time during their lifecycles. While the issue lingers on in municipal planning meetings around the country, the federal government does what it can to protect wetlands. It does so through regulations spelled out in the Clean Water Act, which include providing tax incentives for selling or giving wetlands to land trusts or other conservation groups, via cooperative efforts with state and local entities, and by acquiring wetlands outright to add acreage to public lands systems.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24 ~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Cheer up, Lamb. Your emotional impasse will lift once you allow your highly tuned sense of justice to guide you on what to do about an associates questionable behavior. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) News about a project you hoped to work on might need more clarification. Take nothing just on faith. Draw up a list of questions, and insist on each being fully answered. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Giving your time to help others is fine. But dont lose sight of your own needs. Make plans for an energy-restoring getaway with that very special person in your life. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Congratulate yourself on getting that difficult job done to everyones satisfaction. This could be the first of many such challenges you might be offered down the line. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) With your enthusiasm soaring again, you feel ready to tackle a tough new assignment. Good for you! And remember: Dont be too proud to accept help when its offered. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Cupid rules the week for single Virgos eager to make a romantic connection. Meanwhile, Virgo couples experience renewed commitment in their relationships. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Home and work issues vie for your attention through early next week. Rely on your Libran sense of balance to keep you from being overwhelmed by either side. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Creative projects might have to go on standby as you tackle other matters making demands on your time and energy. Things should ease by the middle of next week. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your energies are high, and so are your aspirations. But be careful not to let work dominate the week. Its also important to spend time with family and friends. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Its a good time to set aside your pride and stop nursing those hurt feelings. Instead, consider restoring relationships you want to have back in your life. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might be miffed at not being shown more appreciation for your hard work. But dont brood over it. Recognition comes in its own time and in its own way. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) With your inner creative juices starting to boil and bubble, this is a good time to launch a new arts-related project, or go back and restart the one you had set aside. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. BY ENID B. JONES Special to the Citizen The next meeting of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club will be Monday, June 17, at 7 p.m. at the Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. At the April meeting, members welcomed speaker Dr. Joyce Blake, Democratic State Committee Woman, whose position allows her to move around the state in support of the Democratic Party as liaison between the county and state. She was also elected chair for Congressional District 3 which encompasses several counties. One of the requirements of her position is to volunteer for various state committees, clubs and caucuses hence she was able to share with us issues that can impact the operation of our MODC The Democratic Executive Committee is focusing on the 2014 mid-term election to elect a democratic governor. Our work includes raising funds to support of candidates who will be emerging soon. Attendance to state convention in October in Orlando would be a great source of information on candidates and other issues in the party. The convention is open to everyone. Dr. Blake mentioned that there is also focus on two mayoral elections in the state in the hope that if democrats are elected that will provide a boost to build from the bottom up in expanding the party in the state. The build-up is very important as there is no democrat in Marion County elected positions so grass roots efforts are needed to support candidates for local elections. Another strategy for the Committee is to have boots on the ground in all communities and populations to encourage potential candidates. To enhance the work in the community changes were made to the By-laws of Marion County Democratic Party such that instead of requiring Precinct Captains in the ratio of one man and one woman per 1,000 Democrats the new requirement will be one man and one woman per 1,000 voters in the precinct. This will serve to increase the number of individuals who can serve as Precinct Captains. Dr. Blake also talked about the newly formed Democratic Womens Club which will deal specifically with issues related to women in the county. The meetings will be held the second Thursday each month at 6:30 p.m. at DEC Headquarters (601 S.W. 1st Ave., Ocala). The search is on for committee members for this new club. Further, the United Auto Workers Retired provided a bus to transport interested individuals to visit with elected members of the Legislature in Tallahassee on April 24. This was an opportunity to meet face to face with legislators to express your concerns and share ideas. Her comments were timely and very informative. Members are reminded that volunteers are needed at Democratic Executive Committee Headquarters at 601 S.W. 1st Ave., Ocala to help with the phones on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. For more information call 352402-9494 or email Joyce Blake at blakejag90@embarqmail.com.

Scores were kept and the winners received a small award. Good food, lots of fellowship makes for a good Memorial Day celebration.

Read the classifieds As one big alleged exrortion plot wa revealed, Marion County deputies are warning people about scam artists. The alleged extortion occurred this week. Sebrina Denise Hampton, of Southwest 15th Place, Ocala, was accused of extortion after a case involving a local woman. According to the first appearance affidavit, Hampton was arrested for organized fraud and grand theft involving the Ross Department Store in Ocala, and involved the victim by calling her and allegedly saying she needed money for attorney fees, and if the victime didnt help her, Hampton would involve her in discussions with the police and have her arrested. Hampton wanted payments of $100, but later upped that to $500, and wanted the victim to sign a paper that she would pay for four years. The victim contacted deputies, and when she and Hampton met at a bank on State Road 200, deputies were watching. The victim had been given money that had been photo copied. When she signed the paper and gave it to Hampton, deputies took Hampton into custody in the parking lot and took her to jail, where a search turned up the money in her bra. Sheriffs detectives are looking for a couple suspected in a scam targeting senior citizens. Detectives want people to know how the scam works: a couple, white male/white female, approach a homeowner and make an unsolicited bid to do some kind of handyman Extortion, scams keep deputies busy work. In one case, the male did some tree service; in another case, the male filled cracks in a driveway. The couple finds a way to get inside the home to steal, by asking to use the bathroom or for a glass of water. The suspects are both in their early 20s. The male has a dark crew cut; he is tall and slim; and may identify himself as Willie. The female may spend time holding a 1-year-old baby. Victims say the couple is driving a 4-door late model dark gray pickup with yellow or orange stripes down the side. If you have had interaction with this suspect couple, please call (352) 438-5920. If this couple comes to your home, please call 911. An Ocala man was accused of cashing fraudulent checks drawn on Wells Fargo Bank from a company in Sarasota, which complained about the action on its account. Michael Graves of Northwest 2nd Avenue was taken into custody at a bank in Ocala, but one of the checks was cashed at Wells Fargo bank on State Road 200. He told police that he was approached by two men, that they spent the night at a motel at State Road 40 and the Interstate, and the next day he was driven around to cash the checks. Deputies are checking for the men, one of whom was identified as being from Decatur, Ga.

BY BARB DEDICS Special to the Citizen More than 160 citizens recently completed classes offered to the public known as the Marion County Sheriff s Citizens and Partnership (CAP) Academy. Thanks to Sheriff Chris Blair, this the first of many sessions being offered to the public in over a decade. The three-month sessions started in early March and were held weekly. Citizens (including myself) are proud and honored to have been given this opportunity of hearing and seeing the inside scoop of the many departments within the Marion County Sheriffs Office (MCSO). Sessions included various speakers from, but not limited to the following departments: Records, Budget, Officer Training, Internal Affairs, Search and Seizure, Surveillance Techniques, Booking, Safety Precautions, Patrol Operations, Bomb Squad Techs, SWAT Team Operations, Violent Crimes, Cargo Theft and Cold Cases. Additionally, tours were given of the MCSO Jail, Inmate Work Farm, Garage and various vehicles, State of the Art Emergency Control Center and the MC Courthouse. For those interested in attending the next session which will start in August, please contact Carolyn Fender at CFender@marionso.com or Jenifer Lowe at JLowe@marionso.com. These ladies are marvelous organizers and very dedicated to this program. This is truly to your benefit to learn what these men and women do for this county on a limited budget. Are you aware that there are approximately 750 paid employees within the MCSO....and approximately 700 volunteers who serve in various capacites? The volunteers alone save county taxpayers almost $3 million. You can be sure to learn something new every week. Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 2 ~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Citizens graduate from academy Riders on the bus to the courthouse. PHOTO BY BARB DEDICSHere are the residents who completed the Citizens Academy. BY CAROLYN SLOCUMB Special to the Citizen What better way to begin the Memorial Day weekend than to have one of our own residents go on the Honor Flight to Washington, DC. Jack Sheidler was on the plane for the trip last October, but because of mechanical problems, that flight was cancelled. However, last Thursday the plane was here, the weather was beautiful, and over 80 World War II veterans made the trip to our nations capital. This flight was the sixth and last Honor Flight from Ocala. Over 600 veterans from the Ocala area have been on the flights from here. Ocala ranks third in the country in the number of veterans honored with this trip. Each veteran had an assigned attendant with him/her for the entire day. Jack said he was honored to have Sheriff Chris Blair sit with him for part of the flight. The plane left Ocala International Airport very early Thursday morning (May 23), and returned that evening a little after 9. The flight began with breakfast being served cereal, fruit, and yogurt. The plane landed at the Baltimore-Washington Airport where the honorees were met by buses. The vets were divided into three groups red white blue. Jack was in the red hat group. The first stop was at the Capitol where they were greeted by Congressmen and a drum and bugle corps. Jack said just standing in the Rotunda of the Capitol was a thrill. Next stop on the tour was the World War II Memorial; Jack got to see the section in honor of those who served from Ohio (he is from Ohio). After enjoying a box lunch, it was back on the buses to Arlington National Cemetery. They witnessed a very moving ceremony of the Changing of the Guard, and also the presentation of flowers by family members. Following this, it was back to the buses for the journey back to the airport for the return trip to Ocala. A hot meal of meatloaf and all the trimmings was served on the return trip. As the plane approached the Ocala runway, Jack said they could see the flood lights and the hundreds of people waving flags to welcome them home. Also, the Kingdom of the Sun Band was playing and two fire trucks greeted the plane with the honor spray, fireworks lighted the sky, and the ladder truck had the American flag flying from the extended ladder. Jack said that when he was asked what was the highlight of the trip his response was the welcome home reception at the Ocala airport. Margene, Jacks wife of 68 years, was right there on the front row to meet her hero. It was also Margenes 89th birthday, but she said she couldnt have wished for anything more than to see Jack get this trip. Along with Margene, there were about 20 more Quail Meadow residents there to greet Jack. Quail Meadow had another resident on this trip; Teresa Bachand was one of the assistants on the plane. I must say, this is a night I will always remember. Jack Sheidler was called to serve in the Navy in September, 1943 and he served until May 1946. Most of his time was spent at Pearl Harbor. He took a short leave in 1945 and went home to marry Margene. By the way, he still has his original dog tags. After completing his service time, Jack and Margene made their home in Ohio. Now let me tell you a little bit about Jack and Margenethey have been residents of Quail Meadow since November 2000. After living in several other Florida locations, they have settled in Quail Meadow. They migrated to the Sunshine State from a small town in northwest Ohio. Margene retired from teaching social studies and geography in a junior high school. Jack retired from the post office. He worked as a clerk for 10 years, and then moved on to a Rural Route. He delivered the mail for over 20 years. He said that he and Margene were fortunate to be able to retire from their jobs at the same time. Jack said that after over 20 years of driving the country roads during, rain, snow and sleet, he was ready for the Florida lifestyle. Their favorite hobby is travel. Jack and Margene have many memories of their numerous trips. They have visited all 50 states and most of the National Parks, as well as many foreign countries. Their favorite form of travel now is either by cruise ship or bus. Several years ago they were members of the Airstream Club and traveled with their own trailer. Margene said that living full time in a travel trailer was just too close for comfort. In their spare time, Jack and Margene take care of the QM library. They regularly sort the books and duplicates are either donated to the Hospice Thrift Store or the Marion County Library. This veteran enjoyed his trip on the final Honor Flight The crowd waited for the flight from Washington to arrive. Jack and Margene Scheidler after his arrival.

Ocala Eye and Hospice partnered to have the annual Frank Polak Memorial bicycle ride. The ride has raised several thousand dollars for Hospice over the years. Just before the 8 a.m. start, groups had an opportunity for team photos. The ride got under way as the Marion Sheriffs motorcycle unit led them off with lights and sirens. Several sheriff cruisers were also present to run interference for the bicycle riders. Three different length rides were available depending on your ability. Riders $40 donation got them a fully staffed ride of 80, 62, or 30 miles. There was a rest stop with chairs, food with beverages and portable shelter to keep the sun away. There was no rain which was good for narrow tires many riders had. Pastries were available at the start for riders to stock up on calories for the long ride ahead of them. The top photo shows the riders getting ready to start. STORY AND PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELAbove, left, motorcycle officers get ready to escort the riders. Top right, the scene at the rest stop. 107th birthday Jack Silverman of Ocala celebrated his 107th birthday on June 1. He was honored by his daughter, Bobbie Seidel, a resident of Stone Creek. Almost three quarters of a million undocumented individuals are estimated to live in Florida, many thousands of whom are migrants and other farmworkers who live a shadowy existence among us right here in Marion County. They provide the backbone upon which our billion dollar horse and agricultural industries prosper and service and construction enterprises rely. When the Friday Forum next meets for lunch at Buffet City in Ocala on June 14, a panel of three area activists will address their compelling and urgent needs as well as those of employers seeking both skilled and unskilled labor while the larger community is called upon to provide emergency humanitarian support. Congress, meanwhile continues to grapple with a major overhaul in our immigration laws in light of border security concerns as well as increasing appreciation for the need to integrate into full membership in our society the approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants now living in the United States by providing them with a path to citizenship. Speakers are Phil Kellerman of Harvest of Hope Foundation, Rev. Bob Miller of the Ocala Farm Ministry and Forum tackles migrants, immigration PLEASESEEFORUM PAGE3 In its 2013 Atlantic hurricane season outlook issued in May, NOAAs Climate Prediction Center is forecasting an active or extremely active season this year. For the six-month hurricane season, which began June 1, NOAAs Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook says there is a 70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 7 to 11 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). These ranges are well above the seasonal average of 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes. With the devastation of Sandy fresh in our minds, and another active season predicted, everyone at NOAA is committed to providing life-saving forecasts in the face of these storms and ensuring that Americans are prepared and ready ahead of time. said Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., NOAA acting administrator. As we saw first-hand with Sandy, its important to remember that tropical storm and hurricane impacts are not limited to the coastline. Strong winds, torrential rain, flooding, and tornadoes often threaten inland areas far from where the storm first makes landfall. Three climate factors that strongly control Atlantic hurricane activity are expected to come together to produce an acStormy summer is likely Andrea Barry Chantal Dorian Erin Fernand Gabrielle Humberto Ingrid Jerry Karen Lorenzo Melissa Nestor Olga Pablo Rebekah Sebastien Tanya Van Wendy 2013 hurricane names Chart Page 16 PLEASESEESTORMS PAGE17 You can adopt a cat from Animal ServicesApril showers bring May flowers, but this spring it rained cats and kittens, leaving Marion County Animal Services with a flood of fabulous felines this June.

Ocala Eye and Hospice partnered to have the annual Frank Polak Memorial bicycle ride. The ride has raised several thousand dollars for Hospice over the years. Just before the 8 a.m. start, groups had an opportunity for team photos. The ride got under way as the Marion Sheriffs motorcycle unit led them off with lights and sirens. Several sheriff cruisers were also present to run interference for the bicycle riders. Three different length rides were available depending on your ability. Riders $40 donation got them a fully staffed ride of 80, 62, or 30 miles. There was a rest stop with chairs, food with beverages and portable shelter to keep the sun away. There was no rain which was good for narrow tires many riders had. Pastries were available at the start for riders to stock up on calories for the long ride ahead of them. The top photo shows the riders getting ready to start. STORY AND PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELAbove, left, motorcycle officers get ready to escort the riders. Top right, the scene at the rest stop. 107th birthdayJack Silverman of Ocala celebrated his 107th birthday on June 1. He was honored by his daughter, Bobbie Seidel, a resident of Stone Creek. Almost three quarters of a million undocumented individuals are estimated to live in Florida, many thousands of whom are migrants and other farmworkers who live a shadowy existence among us right here in Marion County. They provide the backbone upon which our billion dollar horse and agricultural industries prosper and service and construction enterprises rely. When the Friday Forum next meets for lunch at Buffet City in Ocala on June 14, a panel of three area activists will address their compelling and urgent needs as well as those of employers seeking both skilled and unskilled labor while the larger community is called upon to provide emergency humanitarian support. Congress, meanwhile continues to grapple with a major overhaul in our immigration laws in light of border security concerns as well as increasing appreciation for the need to integrate into full membership in our society the approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants now living in the United States by providing them with a path to citizenship. Speakers are Phil Kellerman of Harvest of Hope Foundation, Rev. Bob Miller of the Ocala Farm Ministry and Forum tackles migrants, immigration PLEASESEEFORUM, PAGE3 In its 2013 Atlantic hurricane season outlook issued in May, NOAAs Climate Prediction Center is forecasting an active or extremely active season this year. For the six-month hurricane season, which began June 1, NOAAs Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook says there is a 70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 7 to 11 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). These ranges are well above the seasonal average of 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes. With the devastation of Sandy fresh in our minds, and another active season predicted, everyone at NOAA is committed to providing life-saving forecasts in the face of these storms and ensuring that Americans are prepared and ready ahead of time. said Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., NOAA acting administrator. As we saw first-hand with Sandy, its important to remember that tropical storm and hurricane impacts are not limited to the coastline. Strong winds, torrential rain, flooding, and tornadoes often threaten inland areas far from where the storm first makes landfall.

BY BARB DEDICS Special to the CitizenMore than 160 citizens recently completed classes offered to the public known as the Marion County Sheriff s Citizens and Partnership (CAP) Academy. Thanks to Sheriff Chris Blair, this the first of many sessions being offered to the public in over a decade. The three-month sessions started in early March and were held weekly. Citizens (including myself) are proud and honored to have been given this opportunity of hearing and seeing the inside scoop of the many departments within the Marion County Sheriffs Office (MCSO). Sessions included various speakers from, but not limited to the following departments: Records, Budget, Officer Training, Internal Affairs, Search and Seizure, Surveillance Techniques, Booking, Safety Precautions, Patrol Operations, Bomb Squad Techs, SWAT Team Operations, Violent Crimes, Cargo Theft and Cold Cases. Additionally, tours were given of the MCSO Jail, Inmate Work Farm, Garage and various vehicles, State of the Art Emergency Control Center and the MC Courthouse. For those interested in attending the next session which will start in August, please contact Carolyn Fender at CFender@marionso.com or Jenifer Lowe at JLowe@marionso.com. These ladies are marvelous organizers and very dedicated to this program. This is truly to your benefit to learn what these men and women do for this county on a limited budget. Are you aware that there are approximately 750 paid employees within the MCSO....and approximately 700 volunteers who serve in various capacites? The volunteers alone save county taxpayers almost $3 million. You can be sure to learn something new every week.

PHOTO BY BARB DEDICSHere are the residents who completed the Citizens Academy. BY CAROLYN SLOCUMB Special to the CitizenWhat better way to begin the Memorial Day weekend than to have one of our own residents go on the Honor Flight to Washington, DC. Jack Sheidler was on the plane for the trip last October, but because of mechanical problems, that flight was cancelled. However, last Thursday the plane was here, the weather was beautiful, and over 80 World War II veterans made the trip to our nations capital. This flight was the sixth and last Honor Flight from Ocala. Over 600 veterans from the Ocala area have been on the flights from here. Ocala ranks third in the country in the number of veterans honored with this trip. Each veteran had an assigned attendant with him/her for the entire day. Jack said he was honored to have Sheriff Chris Blair sit with him for part of the flight. The plane left Ocala International Airport very early Thursday morning (May 23), and returned that evening a little after 9. The flight began with breakfast being served cereal, fruit, and yogurt. The plane landed at the Baltimore-Washington Airport where the honorees were met by buses. The vets were divided into three groups red white blue. Jack was in the red hat group. The first stop was at the Capitol where they were greeted by Congressmen and a drum and bugle corps. Jack said just standing in the Rotunda of the Capitol was a thrill. Next stop on the tour was the World War II Memorial; Jack got to see the section in honor of those who served from Ohio (he is from Ohio). After enjoying a box lunch, it was back on the buses to Arlington National Cemetery. They witnessed a very moving ceremony of the Changing of the Guard, and also the presentation of flowers by family members. Following this, it was back to the buses for the journey back to the airport for the return trip to Ocala. A hot meal of meatloaf and all the trimmings was served on the return trip. As the plane approached the Ocala runway, Jack said they could see the flood lights and the hundreds of people waving flags to welcome them home. Also, the Kingdom of the Sun Band was playing and two fire trucks greeted the plane with the honor spray, fireworks lighted the sky, and the ladder truck had the American flag flying from the extended ladder. Jack said that when he was asked what was the highlight of the trip his response was the welcome home reception at the Ocala airport. Margene, Jacks wife of 68 years, was right there on the front row to meet her hero. It was also Margenes 89th birthday, but she said she couldnt have wished for anything more than to see Jack get this trip. Along with Margene, there were about 20 more Quail Meadow residents there to greet Jack. Quail Meadow had another resident on this trip; Teresa Bachand was one of the assistants on the plane. I must say, this is a night I will always remember. Jack Sheidler was called to serve in the Navy in September, 1943 and he served until May 1946. Most of his time was spent at Pearl Harbor. He took a short leave in 1945 and went home to marry Margene. By the way, he still has his original dog tags. After completing his service time, Jack and Margene made their home in Ohio. Now let me tell you a little bit about Jack and Margenethey have been residents of Quail Meadow since November 2000. After living in several other Florida locations, they have settled in Quail Meadow. They migrated to the Sunshine State from a small town in northwest Ohio. Margene retired from teaching social studies and geography in a junior high school. Jack retired from the post office. He worked as a clerk for 10 years, and then moved on to a Rural Route. He delivered the mail for over 20 years. He said that he and Margene were fortunate to be able to retire from their jobs at the same time. Jack said that after over 20 years of driving the country roads during, rain, snow and sleet, he was ready for the Florida lifestyle. Their favorite hobby is travel. Jack and Margene have many memories of their numerous trips. They have visited all 50 states and most of the National Parks, as well as many foreign countries. Their favorite form of travel now is either by cruise ship or bus. Several years ago they were members of the Airstream Club and traveled with their own trailer. Margene said that living full time in a travel trailer was just too close for comfort. In their spare time, Jack and Margene take care of the QM library. They regularly sort the books and duplicates are either donated to the Hospice Thrift Store or the Marion County Library. This veteran enjoyed his trip on the final Honor Flight The crowd waited for the flight from Washington to arrive. Jack and Margene Scheidler after his arrival.

Read the classifieds As one big alleged exrortion plot wa revealed, Marion County deputies are warning people about scam artists. The alleged extortion occurred this week. Sebrina Denise Hampton, of Southwest 15th Place, Ocala, was accused of extortion after a case involving a local woman. According to the first appearance affidavit, Hampton was arrested for organized fraud and grand theft involving the Ross Department Store in Ocala, and involved the victim by calling her and allegedly saying she needed money for attorney fees, and if the victime didnt help her, Hampton would involve her in discussions with the police and have her arrested. Hampton wanted payments of $100, but later upped that to $500, and wanted the victim to sign a paper that she would pay for four years. The victim contacted deputies, and when she and Hampton met at a bank on State Road 200, deputies were watching. The victim had been given money that had been photo copied. When she signed the paper and gave it to Hampton, deputies took Hampton into custody in the parking lot and took her to jail, where a search turned up the money in her bra. Sheriffs detectives are looking for a couple suspected in a scam targeting senior citizens. Detectives want people to know how the scam works: a couple, white male/white female, approach a homeowner and make an unsolicited bid to do some kind of handyman Extortion, scams keep deputies busy work. In one case, the male did some tree service; in another case, the male filled cracks in a driveway. The couple finds a way to get inside the home to steal, by asking to use the bathroom or for a glass of water. The suspects are both in their early 20s. The male has a dark crew cut; he is tall and slim; and may identify himself as Willie. The female may spend time holding a 1-year-old baby. Victims say the couple is driving a 4-door late model dark gray pickup with yellow or orange stripes down the side. If you have had interaction with this suspect couple, please call (352) 438-5920. If this couple comes to your home, please call 911. An Ocala man was accused of cashing fraudulent checks drawn on Wells Fargo Bank from a company in Sarasota, which complained about the action on its account. Michael Graves of Northwest 2nd Avenue was taken into custody at a bank in Ocala, but one of the checks was cashed at Wells Fargo bank on State Road 200. He told police that he was approached by two men, that they spent the night at a motel at State Road 40 and the Interstate, and the next day he was driven around to cash the checks. Deputies are checking for the men, one of whom was identified as being from Decatur, Ga.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Cheer up, Lamb. Your emotional impasse will lift once you allow your highly tuned sense of justice to guide you on what to do about an associates questionable behavior. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) News about a project you hoped to work on might need more clarification. Take nothing just on faith. Draw up a list of questions, and insist on each being fully answered. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Giving your time to help others is fine. But dont lose sight of your own needs. Make plans for an energy-restoring getaway with that very special person in your life. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Congratulate yourself on getting that difficult job done to everyones satisfaction. This could be the first of many such challenges you might be offered down the line. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) With your enthusiasm soaring again, you feel ready to tackle a tough new assignment. Good for you! And remember: Dont be too proud to accept help when its offered. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Cupid rules the week for single Virgos eager to make a romantic connection. Meanwhile, Virgo couples experience renewed commitment in their relationships. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Home and work issues vie for your attention through early next week. Rely on your Libran sense of balance to keep you from being overwhelmed by either side. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Creative projects might have to go on standby as you tackle other matters making demands on your time and energy. Things should ease by the middle of next week. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your energies are high, and so are your aspirations. But be careful not to let work dominate the week. Its also important to spend time with family and friends. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Its a good time to set aside your pride and stop nursing those hurt feelings. Instead, consider restoring relationships you want to have back in your life. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might be miffed at not being shown more appreciation for your hard work. But dont brood over it. Recognition comes in its own time and in its own way. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) With your inner creative juices starting to boil and bubble, this is a good time to launch a new arts-related project, or go back and restart the one you had set aside. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. BY ENID B. JONES Special to the CitizenThe next meeting of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club will be Monday, June 17, at 7 p.m. at the Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. At the April meeting, members welcomed speaker Dr. Joyce Blake, Democratic State Committee Woman, whose position allows her to move around the state in support of the Democratic Party as liaison between the county and state. She was also elected chair for Congressional District 3 which encompasses several counties. One of the requirements of her position is to volunteer for various state committees, clubs and caucuses hence she was able to share with us issues that can impact the operation of our MODC The Democratic Executive Committee is focusing on the 2014 mid-term election to elect a democratic governor. Our work includes raising funds to support of candidates who will be emerging soon. Attendance to state convention in October in Orlando would be a great source of information on candidates and other issues in the party. The convention is open to everyone. Dr. Blake mentioned that there is also focus on two mayoral elections in the state in the hope that if democrats are elected that will provide a boost to build from the bottom up in expanding the party in the state. The build-up is very important as there is no democrat in Marion County elected positions so grass roots efforts are needed to support candidates for local elections. Another strategy for the Committee is to have boots on the ground in all communities and populations to encourage potential candidates. To enhance the work in the community changes were made to the By-laws of Marion County Democratic Party such that instead of requiring Precinct Captains in the ratio of one man and one woman per 1,000 Democrats the new requirement will be one man and one woman per 1,000 voters in the precinct. This will serve to increase the number of individuals who can serve as Precinct Captains. Dr. Blake also talked about the newly formed Democratic Womens Club which will deal specifically with issues related to women in the county. The meetings will be held the second Thursday each month at 6:30 p.m. at DEC Headquarters (601 S.W. 1st Ave., Ocala). The search is on for committee members for this new club. Further, the United Auto Workers Retired provided a bus to transport interested individuals to visit with elected members of the Legislature in Tallahassee on April 24. This was an opportunity to meet face to face with legislators to express your concerns and share ideas. Her comments were timely and very informative. Members are reminded that volunteers are needed at Democratic Executive Committee Headquarters at 601 S.W. 1st Ave., Ocala to help with the phones on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. For more information call 352402-9494 or email Joyce Blake at blakejag90@embarqmail.com.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Road. All veterans living in Marion County are encouraged to attend this informative and educational free event. Spotlight on Memorial DayUnder the over all command of President Bill Mahar, the Cherrywood Veterans Club hosted the Memorial Day observance for a record number of guests. More than 130 people came to honor those who made the supreme sacrifice in service to their country. The program began with the presentation of colors by the Cherrywood Color Guard. Led by Jerry Moscariello, the detail presented the American Flag by reenacting the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima. Richard Becotte, our resident deejay, provided the music for the day starting with the National Anthem. Many in the crowd spontaneously sang along. Following the National Anthem, Steven Jacobs, retired Navy Chief Petty Officer and director of the Veterans Services Office here in Ocala, gave an inspiring speech on the significance of Memorial Day. He made reference to the fact that while most Americans consider Memorial Day the beginning holiday of the summer; veterans and their families know the real meaning is to honor those who gave their all. It is the veteran, as Chief Jacobs said, that understands the significance of words like sacrifice and service. A salute to the Armed Forces followed Chief Jacobss remarks with a playing of the songs for each of the branches of service; Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine. This too was well received with guests singing and clapping along. Solemnity hushed the crowd as the Honor Detail made their way to the monument for the wreath laying ceremony. As the Navy Hymn played, Ruth Hurley read the names of all 30 of our veterans who have passed away over the years, thus keeping our promise to always remember. Thirty small flags, one for each of our deceased members adorned the monument as this years wreath presenters neared. The Honors Detail was made up of Skip Smith and his wife Trude; accompanied by President William Mahar; Peggy Konar and Bugler Joe Gignac. Skip Smith with assistance from his wife Trude and Peggy Konar, rose from his wheel chair. His courage and commitment inspired every one present as he placed the beautiful floral wreath on its stand in front of the flag pole. Our Color Guard dipped their flags in quiet salute. Everyone else stood at attention and joined the flag bearers in silent tribute to the fallen. The silence of this somber moment was broken by the bitter sweet strains of Taps as it echoed forth across the silent crowd. As the last note died, the Honors Party began to withdraw and the color guard prepared to pass in review. After a short break, at noon exactly, Color Party members, Joe Gignac and Marty Duesel manned the flag pole in preparation for the raising of the flag from half staff to full staff. Again, many of the visitors came out to witness this traditional ceremony and as Rich Becotte sounded the National Anthem, the flag went hurriedly up to its honored place at the top of the pole. Proving that Murphy is alive and well, during this ceremony, the flag came loose from one of its grommets and had to be hastily repaired. Thanks to Fred OHern, and the Color Detail, the flag was quickly secured and was hoisted to its rightful place. Following the service, everyone went into the brightly decorated clubhouse. Patriotic flowers and ribbons; flags and centerpieces were in place thanks to Eve Houghtaling and Ida Mahar. Once the visitors had gone inside, the meal was served. Bill Brotherhood and his group of grill masters had the hamburgers and hot dogs cooked to perfection and ready to serve to the hungry throng. Eve Houghtaling was in charge of the servers and she and her crew managed to feed the record number of visitors in just over a half hour. This was a record time for a record crowd. Our kitchen detail headed by Peggy Konar was outstanding in dishing up potato salad; beans; making sure there were plenty of drinks and keeping the serving line supplied. Both kitchen and serving volunteers worked in perfect harmony making the lines go quickly and smoothly. Trude Smith and Wanda Huff manned the fully stocked dessert table. Cakes, pies, cookies, brownies and mouth watering sweets of every description were brought in by donors to be shared by all. Midge Lee, Bill Spangenberg and Jim Houghtaling sold 50/50 tickets and Joe Gignac collected the meal tickets. As you might imagine, an event of this size and scope does not just happen. Detailed planning and the hard work of our volunteers made this meaningful and touching ceremony and the luncheon that followed possible. We here note and thank our volunteers: Color Guard members taking part, Jerry Moscariello, director; Ken Beech; Marty Duesel; Phil Tatro; Dick Francis; Ray Tafilowski; Linda Sisto; Bernice Hasinec; Donna Moran; Marie Ustianowski; Jan Anderson and Al deLaurentis. Our kitchen crew and cooks included, Peggy Konar, supervisor; Marguerite Fiorenza; Genevieve Downs; with Dick Francis handling the drinks. On the grill Bill Brotherhood headed the team of Al Buechter; Dick Straub; Bill Huff; Herb Neubaur and Jerry Giovanniello. On the serving line, Christl Giovanniello; Sandra Brotherhood; Ruth Hurley; Marti Duesel; and Ida Mahar worked with Eve Houghtaling who directed the team. At 2 oclock, the winners of the raffles and 50/50 drawings were announced. Two gift certificates were awarded; one to Beef OBradys and one to Sammys Restaurant. In addition, a floral display was also given out. Three people were winners of the 50/50 drawings. There was some food left over in spite of the record crowd which showed up for our service; testament that everyone had plenty to eat. Jim & Eve Houghtaling delivered the excess food to the Salvation Army Soup Kitchen in Ocala. The Veterans Club would like to thank all of our volunteers and everyone who took their time to pay respects to those who gave up all their tomorrows for us to have this day.From your reporterIts a busy time here at Cherrywood and summer vacations are upon us.

Im always pleased to hear from you, the reader. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 Update your emergency contact listThe recent disasters in Oklahoma highlighted the need for law enforcement to have access to emergency contact information. Now as Floridians brace for the 2013 Hurricane Season and create disaster preparedness plans, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles encourages you to make sure first responders know who to notify if you are in an emergency situation. The Department offers Emergency Contact Information registration online at https://services.flhsmv.gov/eci/ and in driver license offices (to include driver license offices operated by county tax collectors). Floridians who hold a current driver license or identification card can enter up to two contacts into the ECI database. Even if you have registered your information previously, it is a good idea to update your contacts periodically, especially if you or your contacts have moved. It takes only a few minutes, and there is no fee to register. The information you register is only available to law enforcement officers in the event of an emergency. Registering your emergency contact information can provide families and loved ones with added peace of mind, said DHSMV Executive Director Julie L. Jones. We are pleased that more than 7 million Floridians have registered their contacts, but that leaves nearly 10 million whose contact information is not available to police. The Florida Highway Patrol has run into situations where a person involved in a crash had registered their emergency contact information but failed to update it, said FHP Director Col. David Brierton. Outdated information can significantly delay our efforts to provide quick notification to families and loved ones.

Dear EarthTalk: Why are wetlands so important to preserve? -Patricia Mancuso, Erie, PA Wetlands include swamps, marshes, bogs, riverbanks, mangroves, floodplains, rice fields and anywhere else, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), that saturation with water is the dominant factor determining the nature of soil development and the types of plant and animal communities there. They are widespread in every country and on every continent except Antarctica. If all the worlds wetlands were put together, they would take up an area one-third larger than the United States. Environmentalists, biologists and others concerned about the health of the planet and its inhabitants recognize the key role wetlands play in life on Earth. The EPA points out that, besides containing a disproportionately high number of plant and animal species compared to other land forms, wetlands serve a variety of ecological services including feeding downstream waters, trapping floodwaters, recharging groundwater supplies, removing pollution and providing fish and wildlife habitat. Wetlands can also be key drivers of local economies, given their importance to agriculture, recreation and fishing. According to Wetlands International, a global non-profit dedicated to the conservation and restoration of wetlands around the world, wetlands are on the frontline as development pressures increase everyEARTH TALK Why are wetlands so important? where. Wetlands are vulnerable to over-exploitation due to their abundance of fish, fuel and water, reports the group, which works on the ground in 18 countries to educate the public and policymakers about the health of local wetlands and to advocate for better policies. When they are viewed as unproductive or marginal lands, wetlands are targeted for drainage and conversion. The rate of loss and deterioration of wetlands is accelerating in all regions of the world, the group adds. The pressure on wetlands is likely to intensify in the coming decades due to increased global demand for land and water, as well as climate change. The widespread expansion of development in the U.S. in recent decades has brought the issue of wetlands loss to the forefront of debates on zoning and land use planning. One of the key and underlying issues is concern about endangered species: More than a third of species on the U.S. Endangered Species List live only in wetlands and almost half use them at some time during their lifecycles. While the issue lingers on in municipal planning meetings around the country, the federal government does what it can to protect wetlands. It does so through regulations spelled out in the Clean Water Act, which include providing tax incentives for selling or giving wetlands to land trusts or other conservation groups, via cooperative efforts with state and local entities, and by acquiring wetlands outright to add acreage to public lands systems.

Noticing she hadnt taken off her headphones at all during the exam, he suggested they might be the cause of her headaches. He told her to take them off. Oh, no. I just couldnt, she said. Without them, Id surely die. Oh, come now, the doctor said, let me help you. And he pulled them off her head. Sure enough, moments later, she was unconscious on the floor. Curious, he picked up the headphones and heard, Breathe in...breathe out...breathe in...breathe out.

D ear E arthTalk: What is th e All One Ocean campaign?--Bill ONeill, L os Angeles, CA All One Ocean is a non-profit campaign launched in 2010 by long-time author, activist and organizer Hallie Austen Iglehart with the goal of reducing the amount of plastic and other trash that ends up in the ocean where it compromises the health of marine wildlife and ecosystems. Iglehart was incensed to learn that a million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals and turtles die each year from ingesting plastic in the water columnand created All One Ocean to do something about it. Contrary to popular myth that most ocean pollution is oil spilled from ships, most of it is land-based litter. The most dangerous litter is our throw-away plastic because of its longevity and capacity to increase in toxicity, eventually returning to the human food chain in a more lethal form, reports Iglehart. Much of our plastic ends up in the ocean in giant collections of trash called gyres, created by circular ocean currents, she adds. They trap debris for decades where it continues to break into ever smaller, more toxic pieces, never fully biodegrading. Of particular concern to Iglehart is the fact that much of this carelessly discarded plastic winds up in the bellies of marine life, contaminating not just ocean ecosystems but in some cases the very seafood on our dinner plates. The main project of All One Ocean is the creation and maintenance of permanent, community supported Beach Clean Up Stations, which are essentially boxes containing reusable bags for beach visitors to use in picking up trash during their time on the sand and in the surf. The idea is to empty any garbage into a trash can somewhere (so it can find its way to a landfill instead of out into the ocean) and then ideally return the bag empty to the box. Each clean-up station also provides a sign with information on the extent of the problem.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 7, 2013 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenRepublicans are upset about President Obamas May 23 foreign-policy address, yet politics aside, its hard to say why. We show this lack of resolve, talking about the war being over, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Fox News Sunday. But four days later in his Memorial Day remarks, Obama said, Our nation is still at war. Why did the earlier speech set off Republicans? He acknowledged that terrorism can never be completely eliminated and that a risk-free society is impossible. He conceded that U.S. military action breeds enemies. He admitted that not every foreign violent organization is a threat to Americans. He even quoted James Madison: No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare. Indeed, Obama said some things that need saying, but will he do what needs doing? More precisely, will he stop doing what shouldnt be done? The speech provides no reason for optimism. For one thing, his premise is wrong: The U.S. government was on a perpetual war footing before the attacks of 9/11, intervening one way or another in many places. The war on terror has just been more visible. Obama says he wants to understand the roots of terrorism, but he just repeats bromides. These threats dont arise in a vacuum, he said. Most, though not all, of the terrorism we face is fueled by a common ideology a belief by some extremists that Islam is in conflict with the United States and the West. But this implies the extremist ideology arose in a vacuum. Obama shows no understanding that Muslim violence has been a response to generations of Western and most recently American efforts to maintain hegemony in the Muslim world. These efforts have consisted in direct overt and covert intervention, backing for brutal and corrupt dictators and monarchs, and enabling of Israels repression of the Palestinians. From Osama bin Laden on down, the perpetrators of anti-American violence have consistently said so. Despite Obamas acknowledgement of the dangers, to Americans and others, of perpetual U.S. warfare, one strains to find signs of change in the speech. He says our response to terrorism cant depend on military or law enforcement alone, but he still envisions a large role for the military: He says the first order of business is to finish the work of defeating al Qaeda and its associated forces. And, Beyond the Afghan theater, we only target al Qaeda and its associated forces. But its associated forces is a conveniently vague justification for continued U.S. militarism. It goes beyond Congresss 2001 authorization for military force. While Obama promises only to narrow the use of drones and shift responsibility from the CIA to the Pentagon, we cant be sure even this will happen or matter. His presidential policy guidance is classified, and he reserves the authority to target alleged militants who pose a continuing and imminent threat when he decides that other alternatives are unavailable or are too risky. Yet his administration has drained the word imminent of meaning Before any strike is taken, he added, there must be near-certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured the highest standard we can set. But he conceded that his administration has killed an undisclosed number of noncombatants. Independent sources say several hundred have been killed while entire villages live in terror of the next strike. This will not change. Remember that administration targets are only accused of planning attacks. There is no due process, and an oversight board would not change that. Obama defended his killing of American Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen on the grounds that alAwlaki had helped plan attacks, but Obama offered no proof, and investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill says the first efforts to kill Awlaki preceded the terrorist plots he is allegedly linked to. And what about the separate drone killings of al-Awlakis 16-year-old son and other Americans? Obama also renewed his longdormant call for closing Guantanamo but not before the mass hunger strike and force-feedings that the whole world is watching. This all looks more like legacy preparation than real change in policy. Witness Syria and Iran. So why are Republicans fussing? Obama said, We cannot use force everywhere that a radical ideology takes root. For Republicans, thats unAmerican.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). My first encounter with a hurricane, that I remember, was in 1954. We had just moved to a house on a hill in northern New Jersey, a one-story with a basement, facing west. I remember hearing about this storm called Hazel that was cutting across the northeast on its way to Canada, after starting in Haiti where it killed 1,000 people. At that point, I had no idea where Haiti was, but I didnt want something that could kill that many people coming my way. My parents said not to worry, that it was greatly weakened by the time it got to us. I learned a bit about hurricanes then, particularly the fact that the wind comes only from one direction when youre on one side of the storm or another. The wind was brutally strong from the east, but we had our front door open except for the screen door, since we faced west. No air conditioning in those days, incidentally. I sat there fascinated and watched the driving wind and rain, which we seemed to be immune to. But then I saw a tree, about 15 feet tall, blow past the house. Not a branch, mind you, but the whole tree. If I remember right, I went into my room and pulled down the shade. I didnt want to see any more of it. So now Im older and supposedly wiser, and where do I live? Florida, one of the spots where hurricanes strike the U.S. first. My home is surrounded by big trees, too. But in this day and age, we have things like satellite images, constant radar and other tools to tell us when and where a hurricane will strike, and how strong it will be. Most of the time the forecasts are accurate, but occasionally a storm will veer to a new course and surprise people. Just remember Hurricane Charley, which was supposed to hit the Tampa Bay area head-on, but suddenly turned and smashed into Punta Gorda. That was in 2004, when we were hit with the triple whammy of Charley, Frances and Jeanne. The important thing is to be prepared. We should all know about the standard things to keep non-perishable foods, water, flashlights and batteries, a battery-powered radio, etc. Just make sure youre ready to follow the paths of storms, and remember, most tracking coordinates only indicate the center of the storm. Damaging winds and rain can venture hundred of miles from the main path. The Atlantic hurricane season started this week, June 1. Earlier this week, we awoke to find a disturbance in the Gulf that was to move over Florida and create heavy rains. At least it wasnt supposed to produce hurricane-force winds. Lets hope our summer and fall are just as calm. But just in case, be ready. Then you can just sit back and calmly watch those trees blow past your house. However, if you have any 10-year-olds living with you, dont let them watch. It will be something that will stay with them a lifetime.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

That tropical disturbance, which grew in the Gulf earlier this week, is a reminder that hurricane season is here. Meteorologists are predicting an busier than average Atlantic hurricane season; in other words, between June I and Nov. 30, the weather along the East Coast will be predictably unpredictable. When it comes to hurricane preparedness in Florida, residents are often one of two extremes: those who have experienced the devastation that one of these massive storms can wield, worrying that every thunderstorm might be the big one, and the devil-maycare types who wont leave their house until the roof falls in. Both are understandable. Hurricanes are wicked sea monsters, capable of shifting course quickly, pounding the shores with wind and rain strong enough to knock down power lines, uproot trees and gut buildings. Hurricanes can trigger storm surges, tornadoes and catastrophic flooding. There is nothing like a hurricane to remind us of the power of Mother Nature, and on the Florida Peninsula the seaside blessing on three sides of our geography is also its curse. On the other hand, hurricanes are so common that its easy, particularly for lifelong residents, to develop a ho-hum attitude or even hurricane fatigue. After so many years of rushing to grocery stores, gathering emergency supplies, and for those near the coast, boarding up windows, battening down hatches and sitting in traffic jams on evacuation routes, especially when those evacuation routes bring the vehicles here to Marion County many times only to have a light rain pass through it is tempting to forego all the hassle and sit tight until the last possible moment. For the most peaceful summer possible, we suggest a middle ground is the best approach. This is the ideal time to stock up on batteries, flashlights, and even inexpensive generators. Create an emergency kit with these supplies along with bottled water and non-perishable food items. Store them together in a designated spot in the house and conduct family drills so everyone knows what to do. If youre worried about computer data, back it up regularly onto a thumb drive that can be snatched up on the way out the door in the event of evacuation. Sure, it is inconvenient and annoying to deal with hurricanes. But like sticky summers and bugs, they are part of life in Florida. Make an emergency plan, assemble that kit and when the season comes to an end, donate those canned goods to a food bankjust in time for the holidays.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com on country tunes. Wear your country duds and dance the night away with friends and neighbors. Thanks to Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management, this is a free event for all of our residents but tickets are required. See Geri in the office to get your tickets and sign up because you wont want to miss this always fun night. Now some of you might have guests in town and want to bring them along. The cost for guests 18 and over is $12 while children under 18 are free. Youll need a guest pass from the office along with your tickets so see Geri soon.TriviaOn June 19, at 7 p.m. the big screen will again be filled with questions to challenge our residents. The subject matter will be holidays; the Indy 500 and a bunch of other questions that will challenge and excite our teams. Well maybe not challenge or excite but at least bring a smile or two. Yours truly will be the quiz master and Im hoping for a record turn out that night. Trivia is fun and easy to play. Just come to the clubhouse with a group or by yourself. At the door, youll be charged $1 per person entry fee. Once inside, you will be placed with a team or if you have a team already, youll be with them at a table. Teams are usually made up of three or four people. Each team gets an answer sheet and I will flash the questions on the big screen. At the end, the answer sheets are graded and bragging rights along with small cash prizes are awarded. Bring your own refreshments, liquid and otherwise, and come out to enjoy a night of fun and lackadaisical competition. All proceeds from the night go to the Wounded Warrior Project and thus far, we have contributed over $300 to that charity. Every week more and more people come out to enjoy Trivia; please join us. Blood Donations neededThe Big Red Bus will be at Cherrywoods clubhouse on June 25 from 9 a.m. until noon. There is a great need for fresh whole blood so we are hoping for a great response to this opportunity. Summertime is especially difficult for our local blood banks. Many people have returned to the north while others are down here for vacations. Traffic accidents, illness and other tragedies drain the blood banks supply that constantly needs replenishing. If you can donate, please contact Judy Durst at 352-873-7849 to set up an appointment or just stop by during the hours that the bus is here. The professionals drawing blood will get you in and out quickly and almost painlessly. Be a hero; donate blood.Veterans Appreciation dinnerOn Saturday, July 6, the members of our Cherrywood Veterans Club will be honored with a dinner and program. This year we will be sharing a chicken and ribs dinner specially cooked by Taste Budz on their own open grill. Side dishes will accompany the main course, of course. Entertainment will be provided from 5 until 9 p.m. by the ever popular Kenny CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 19 The Cherrywood Color Guard at the Memorial Day services. Jackson. Those of you who have heard Kenny in the past know that he is a first rate entertainer and for those of you who have not experienced one of his shows, you are in for a treat. Each year the Veterans Club says Thank you to our members for their service in the military and for their continued service to our community. Tickets are only $3 for our vets and their spouses and $7 for all others. We are looking forward to some great food; excellent entertainment and for the opportunity to express our appreciation to all of our veterans. Come join us for a very special evening.Cribbage ClubMondays at 12:30 in the clubhouse card room join the Cherrywood cribbage players as they learn; play; improve their cribbage skills and give each other some good natured kidding. This is a fun group that enjoys the game and is anxious to teach others how to play. If you have any interest at all, please join us. Youll be glad you did. Garden ClubThere will be no Garden Club meetings through the summer months. Last week I erroneously reported that they would be having a meeting in June. Please continue to read your Chirp Magazine and this column in the Citizen for information about their next meeting in the fall. Marion County Veterans Resource FairRepresentative Richard Nugent is sponsoring a Veterans Resource Fair on June 22 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Klein Center at the College of Central Florida-Ocala Campus. This event will feature vendors and service officers to assist veterans with information concerning educational opportunities; job placement; medical care; burial services and much more.

It is in the area of questions I feel the most inadequate. Maybe it is because I have not heard all the questions yet, but I think I have come close. I should know that any question that comes from my wife has a hidden agenda. Usually, she asks questions that have no answers. Lets go out for lunch today, she said rather chipperly. Experience should have taught me that when she is chipper, I am in trouble, because I am always the chippee. We have, she explained, some gift cards for a restaurant across town. Then she smiled and that should have been a giveaway for me. When you mention lunch, and when you add the word free to it, I lose all sense of proportion and sanity, if I had any. Actually, to be honest about everything, it does not take much to scratch between my ears and get me purring. Then she threw in a perk that sold me completely on the idea. I love perks. Ill drive. When you think you have heard every trick in the book, somebody writes a new book. Usually, I forget some old trick that she has played, and here was an old one she was playing on me again. On the way to the restaurant, I had a little uneasy feeling, but as we sat down and began ordering, all suspicion faded into thin air. It was a scrumptious lunch and we both enjoyed being together, carefree and enjoying the ambiance. When the check came I casually said, You know, we ought to do this more often. She smiled and nodded her head. When we got into the car, she said somewhat nonchalantly, Oh, by the way, since were here I need to run into the mall and pick up an item. When I heard those words, I froze. Not the mall! I hate shopping, especially at the mall. In my mind, the word mall is the acronym for May All Lose their Loot. Since I do not have that much loot to lose, I do not like going into a place designed to relieve me of my loot. Every time I walk down the center of the mall, I feel eyes glaring at me and piercing to the core of my wallet trying to suck out all my money. And, by the way, they take credit cards. Boy, do they take credit cards. When we parked at the mall parking lot, I indicated I would stay in the car and wait for her. Oh, no, she exclaimed, come on in, you need the exercise. Im just going to run in and run out. Here is where the language differential between husbands and wives shows itself. Unless you are familiar with English with a feminine twist, you are going to get trapped every time. For example: when a husband says the word run, he is referring to speed. When his wife uses the same word it means she is going to run into every store in sight within the mall with one agenda, and that is to buy. For which I can say bye-bye to my money. Why dont local universities offer a degree in wifeology? They have degrees in everything else, why not here where it would be most useful. By the time I reach the equivalent of a doctorate in wifeology, I would be too old to do any good with it. Those who insist there is no difference between a man and a woman have never been married to a woman. Husbands get into trouble assuming their wife is just like them and thinks just like them. Exiting the shopping mall my wife looked at me, smiled and said, Now, wasnt that good exercise. I nodded as I walked to the car with both my hands filled with recently purchased items from the shopping mall. Now I know my part of the exercise was hauling her purchases to the car. Halfway to the car I had to stop and catch my breath and wondered if I would really make it to the car. Come on, were done shopping for the day. Lets get to the car. While driving home I was afraid my wife was going to wear out her smile. This has been a great day. Well have to do this more often. Then she began humming a song, I was tricked and I thought I was trick-proof Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE11 On June 22 you are invited to come to the pool behind the clubhouse for a casual, romantic evening of dancing and pizza. Enjoy the soft breezes of a summer night; listen to the beautiful music played by our favorite deejay, Rich Becotte and enjoy a meal of hot pizza and salad. The cost is only $4 per ticket so see Geri in the office soon as there are a limited number of tickets available. You wont want to miss this night of fun fellowship with your friends and neighbors as they dance and socialize in the quiet comfort of the clubhouse or at pool side. As always you are welcome to bring your own beverages but for those who plan to be poolside, please make sure you dont bring anything in a glass container. Paper or plastic cups are fine. This promises to be a beautiful night of fun; food and entertainment so dont miss out.Food DriveOn Thursday, June 20, the Cherrywood Veterans Club is requesting your support. We are conducting a food drive for Ritz House of Ocala. Ritz House is run by the Volunteers of America in conjunction with the Veterans Administration and the Ocala veteran community. Homeless veterans are given the opportunity to get off of the streets and into a comfortable, safe place to stay for upwards of two years. While at the Ritz House, the clients must obey all of the rules including no alcohol or drugs permitted; they must take part in the programs offered and must find work. Counselors work with the various veterans and treat their problems on both a group level and individual case basis. Work programs; educational opportunities; recreational outlets and other therapies are all available thanks to the hard work of the staff and the commitment of the individual veteran. One meal a day is provided by the government for these men and women and the financial support they receive is not only meager, but takes a long time to establish. For that reason, every six months or so, your Cherrywood Veterans Club conducts a food drive to assist Ritz House. Its easy to give to this project. Simply place a bag of non-perishable food or cleaning supplies by your mail box on Thursday, June 20, and our volunteers will come around at 10 a.m. and pick them up. Cleaning supplies including sponges; paper towels; detergents; scouring powders and the like are always needed as those receiving treatment at Ritz House are responsible for keeping their rooms neat and clean. Ritz House is making a Hot Summer Nights on June 22 in Cherrywood Cherrywood John Everlove big difference in the lives of 50 homeless veterans at a time. You can be a huge help in this effort by giving generously to our food drive. Additionally, a vet representative will be at the clubhouse from 9:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Friday and Saturday to accept your items. The veterans thank you for your support.Bocce BallOn Saturday, June 1, the Bocce Ball group met at their new time and day.

I think this is her theme song; in fact, I am afraid it is. About half way home, I had a wonderful thought. It was a good day. I can always earn more money, but I can never get another wife quite as nice as the one I have. Then I began humming, Weve only just begun. A verse of Scripture began playing in my mind as we continued our journey home. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:3 KJV). Driving into the driveway, I realized this was not our final destination. God has a wonderful place prepared for those who have put their trust and faith in Him. No tricks about it.The Rev. James L.

we call Israel its past, its present, its people, and above all, what it means. We go together as a community, and it will be the trip of a lifetime, he said, whether youve been to Israel a hundred times or never yet. Dr. Robert Bloom, an industrial psychologist who has been on a number Israel tours, said, We went to places and got to feel things Ive never felt before in Israel. Knowing that I could figuratively almost reach out and touch Abraham, Isaac and Jacob It made the things you read and learn about all so real. Visits to Israels holiest places, including Hevron, city of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, Rachels Tomb and Tzefat contrast with excursions that provide an insiders view of Israels achievements and challenges: an IDF paratrooper base, the Weizmann Institute, the Golan Heights. A visit to the Western Wall creates a time for personal reflection and the opportunity for a bar or bat mitzvah ceremony for those who had not celebrated theirs in the past. A full roster of top-caliber speakers drawn from all walks of Israeli life is made possible through Chabads extensive network of relationships with influential and people, said Rabbi Yossi. Previous year featured talks by Natan Sharansky and Benjamin Netanyahu, Rabbi Adin Even-Yisrael Steinsaltz and Israels chief rabbis, and newsmakers including Knesset members, activists, professors, and heads of Israeli military and intelligence. The trip is sponsored by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI). Describing the trips packed schedule of educational tours of ancient and modern locations, Land & Spirit director Rabbi Boruch Cohen said it would be hard to find the combination of luxury and value that JLI offers in the Land & Spirit Israel Experience. Barry Levin of Longmont, Colorado, is one of the 2012 participants who are planning to join the 2014 trip. Being in our own country, he said, is indescribable. To me its a Jewish experience not Reform, Orthodox, Conservative or anything in between or beyond. It was just a fantastic experience. The Land and Spirit Experience will take March 23 April 1, 2014. For information, contact Rabbi Yossi and visit www.landandspirit.org. An optional five-day journey to Poland on the way to the Holy Land is an added feature. Participants will visit Warsaw, Lublin, Krakow, and the Auschwitz and Madanjek concentration camps, the names themselves recalling centuries of Jewish history and tragedy. The group will fly directly to Israel on March 23 to meet up with others. For information, visit www.landandspirit.org/P oland. Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com One of the greatest sages of the Jewish people was a man named Akiva ben Joseph. (50 C.E. 135 C.E.) This ignorant shepherd whose formal education did not begin until he was 40, rose to be one of the most important rabbis in Jewish history. The background of his early life is unknown, but traditionally he started learning with rabbis Joshua and Eliezer when he was forty. A legend says that his wealthy father-in-law disinherited his daughter Rachel, because he felt that Akiva, who was an ignorant shepherd when they married, would never amount to anything. Akivas wife, Rachel, stood by his side and encouraged him to study even though it was a great hardship for them. He studied for 12 years and when his wife told him that he could study for another 12 years, he was so encouraged that he continued to do so acquiring 24,000 students to his credit. His scholarship led him into developing thee foundations of the Oral Law, the interpretation of the Torah by the rabbis, which was eventually codified into the Mishnah, a part of the Talmud dealing with Jewish practices and laws and their interpretations. It was also his belief that every letter and word of the Torah had special meaning and it was his life study of the holy text that led him to the interpretations still followed today in traditional Judaism. His students studied with him at his academy in Bene Brak, a place where Jewish scholarship flourished. The story of Rabbi Akiva Judis Journal Judi Siegal Unfortunately, Rabbi Akiva lived in a very oppressive time in Jewish history. The Romans ruled Palestine at the time and it was their intention to subjugate their conquered peoples by suppressing culture and religion. In the case of the Jews, this was most distressing because the Romans passed laws forbidding the teaching of Torah. With education an important part of the Jewish faith, this prohibition was stifling to the religious populace. Rabbi Akiva, at the peril of his life, disobeyed the Romans and continued to study. At this trying time in Jewish history, a man named Bar Kochba arose as a Jewish messiah or King-Messenger. Rabbi Akiva believed that Bar Kochba was the promised leader that would overthrow the Romans and restore Jewish rule to the Holy Land. He saw in Bar Kochba the leadership and military might needed to defeat so strong an enemy. Akivas hopes were dashed when the Bar Kochba revolt was crushed by the fall of Betar, the rebel stronghold near Jerusalem in 135 C.E. It was not until modern times, when the State of Israel was created in 1948, were the Jews masters of their own fate in their own land. Akiva continued to teach Torah and Jewish law to his students in defiance of the Roman law. He was eventually captured and imprisoned. Even when incarcerated, he continued to study and teach. He was one of 10 martyrs cruelly put to death by the Romans for teaching Judaism and he and the other rabbis who met the same fate are remembered on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year, in a special service which honors martyrs. Tradition has it that Rabbi Akiva was tortured by the Romans by using an iron comb to scrape his flesh. Just before he died, he tells his students that all his life he had wanted to fulfill the tenets of the Shema, a prayer that expresses the oneness of God and the commandment to love God with all ones being and heart. Even in great pain, Rabbi Akiva saw his martyrdom as fulfillment of this commandment. Thus ended the life of one of Judaisms greatest sages. In March of 2014, Chabad of Marion County, led by Rabbi Yossi Hecht, will join other Chabad groups on the fourth Land and Spirit trip, described as a journey into the heart and soul of the Land of Israel. New this year, some participants will add an optional excursion to Poland before joining the rest of the group in Israel. In 2013, the name of the trip was changed to The Land & the Spirit Israel Experience. Its not really a mission, explained Rabbi Yossi. Some trips are designed to showcase a particular organizations accomplishments and encourage participation in their cause, but that isnt our purpose. The Land & the Spirit is all about exploring and experiencing the essence of this place Chabad plans VIP Israel Experience March 2014 tive or extremely active 2013 hurricane season. These are: A continuation of the atmospheric climate pattern, which includes a strong west African monsoon, that is responsible for the ongoing era of high activity for Atlantic hurricanes that began in 1995; Warmer-than-average water temperatures in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea; and El Nio is not expected to develop and suppress hurricane formation. This year, oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the Atlantic basin are expected to produce more and stronger hurricanes, said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. These conditions include weaker wind shear, warmer Atlantic waters and conducive winds patterns coming from Africa. NOAAs seasonal hurricane outlook is not a hurricane landfall forecast; it does not predict how many storms will hit land or where a storm will strike. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts will be provided throughout the season by NOAAs National Hurricane Center. New for this hurricane season are improvements to forecast models, data gathering, and the National Hurricane Center communication procedure for post-tropical cyclones. In July, NOAA plans to bring online a new supercomputer that will run an upgraded Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) model that provides significantly enhanced depiction of storm structure and improved storm intensity forecast guidance. Also this year, Doppler radar data will be transmitted in real time from NOAAs Hurricane Hunter aircraft. This will help forecasters better analyze rapidly evolving storm conditions, and these data could further improve the HWRF model forecasts by 10 to 15 percent. The National Weather Service has also made changes to allow for hurricane warnings to remain in effect, or to be newly issued, for storms like Sandy that have become post-tropical. This flexibility allows forecasters to provide a continuous flow of forecast and warning information for evolving or continuing threats. The start of hurricane season is a reminder that our families, businesses and communities need to be ready for the next big storm, said Joe Nimmich, FEMA associate administrator for Response and Recovery. Preparedness today can make a big difference down the line, so update your family emergency plan and make sure your emergency kit is stocked.

Here are some facts about hurricanes as compiled by hurricane-facts.com. The word hurricane comes from the Taino Native American word, hurucane, meaning evil spirit of the wind. The first time anyone flew into a hurricane happened in 1943 in the middle of World War II. A tropical storm is classified as a hurricane once winds goes up to 74 miles per hour or higher. Hurricanes are the only weather disasters that have been given their own names (The Weather Channel tried naming winter storms this past year, but it didnt seem to catch on with other news agencies). All hurricanes begin life in a warm moist atmosphere over tropical ocean waters. A typical hurricane can dump 6 inches to a foot of rain in a region. The most violent winds and heaviest rains take place in the eye wall, the ring of clouds and thunderstorms closely surrounding the eye. Every second, a large hurricane releases the energy of 10 atomic bombs. Hurricanes can also produce tornadoes. They are not as strong as regular tornadoes and last only a few minutes. Slow moving hurricanes produce more rainfall and can cause more damage from flooding than fastermoving, more powerful hurricanes. Hurricane Floyd was barely a category I hurricane, but it still managed to mow down 19 million trees and caused over a billion dollars in damage. Most people who die in hurricanes are killed by the walls of sea water that comes inland. In the Pacific Ocean, Hurricanes are generally known as typhoons. In the Indian Ocean they are called tropical cyclones. The man who first gave names to hurricanes was an Australian weather forecaster named C. Wragge in the early 1900s. The first hurricane of the year is given a name beginning with the letter A. Hurricane season is from June to November when the seas are at their warmest and most humid, which are ripe conditions for a hurricane to develop. The planet Jupiter has a hurricane which has been going on for over 300 years. It can be seen as a red spot on the planet.

PAID ADVERTISEMENT Hearing and Hearing Aids 101 Hearing is a complicated process that not only involves the ears and the complex parts of them, but also involves the nervous system and the part of the brain that receives and interprets the sounds, which is an important part of the auditory process. When you hear sounds, they go through the ear at the beginning of the hearing process and travel through the nervous system to the part of the brain that hears the sounds, and figures out what it is. As your hearing loss gets worse, these other parts of the system start to lose their ability to function as well, which is why it is important to get hearing loss remedied. Auditory deprivation can occur over a period of time where the brain no longer receives enough sound stimulation to work properly, making it harder for you to recognize sounds even after you have gotten hearing aids, sometimes, if you have been hard of hearing for a long time. Many times, this is caused from auditory deprivation and it is a case where the process gets weaker through lack of use for so long. If you think about auditory deprivation as similar to a body where you have not had much exercise or movement for a while, you can have all kinds of aches and pains trying to get back in shape. When the brain has been deprived of sound for so long, it will have a hard time getting back into shape to recognize them the way it once did. Sometimes, people will try to get by with one hearing aid instead of purchasing the two they really need. Not only can this make it difficult to figure out what side of the room that sounds are coming from, but it can still cause auditory deprivation, as it applies to the ear that does not have sound coming through the process. It is like you are depriving that section of the auditory process from any exercise, but putting more effort on the other side of the auditory system to compensate. Over the long run, auditory deprivation will set in or you are going to need to have your other hearing aid at full power which will cause feedback and squealing trying to compensate for this condition. Because you were meant to use both ears to hear with, it is advisable that you get hearing aids for both ears when you experience hearing loss, especially if it is due to aging. This is not necessarily the case if it was For consumers about to make a hearing aid purchase, and anyone interested in learning about hearing. Friday, June 7 Tuesday, June 11 10:30 a.m. 3:30 p.m. Improve Hearing by Avoiding Auditory Deprivation from a situational hearing loss situation, where only one ear was affected. Auditory deprivation will not occur because the other ear is still working through the hearing process and that section of the brain is still processing sounds. It is important to understand that hearing aids wont restore lost hearing, but it can keep the hearing you have from deteriorating as quickly, which can be important. There is no sense in losing your ability to hear when there are aids to improve your quality of life and help the condition from getting worse. Call Now! Spots Are Limited.

PAID ADVERTISEMENT Hearing and Hearing Aids 101 Hearing is a complicated process that not only involves the ears and the complex parts of them, but also involves the nervous system and the part of the brain that receives and interprets the sounds, which is an important part of the auditory process. When you hear sounds, they go through the ear at the beginning of the hearing process and travel through the nervous system to the part of the brain that hears the sounds, and figures out what it is. As your hearing loss gets worse, these other parts of the system start to lose their ability to function as well, which is why it is important to get hearing loss remedied. Auditory deprivation can occur over a period of time where the brain no longer receives enough sound stimulation to work properly, making it harder for you to recognize sounds even after you have gotten hearing aids, sometimes, if you have been hard of hearing for a long time. Many times, this is caused from auditory deprivation and it is a case where the process gets weaker through lack of use for so long. If you think about auditory deprivation as similar to a body where you have not had much exercise or movement for a while, you can have all kinds of aches and pains trying to get back in shape. When the brain has been deprived of sound for so long, it will have a hard time getting back into shape to recognize them the way it once did. Sometimes, people will try to get by with one hearing aid instead of purchasing the two they really need. Not only can this make it difficult to figure out what side of the room that sounds are coming from, but it can still cause auditory deprivation, as it applies to the ear that does not have sound coming through the process. It is like you are depriving that section of the auditory process from any exercise, but putting more effort on the other side of the auditory system to compensate. Over the long run, auditory deprivation will set in or you are going to need to have your other hearing aid at full power which will cause feedback and squealing trying to compensate for this condition. Because you were meant to use both ears to hear with, it is advisable that you get hearing aids for both ears when you experience hearing loss, especially if it is due to aging. This is not necessarily the case if it was For consumers about to make a hearing aid purchase, and anyone interested in learning about hearing. Friday, June 7 Tuesday, June 11 10:30 a.m. 3:30 p.m. Improve Hearing by Avoiding Auditory Deprivation from a situational hearing loss situation, where only one ear was affected. Auditory deprivation will not occur because the other ear is still working through the hearing process and that section of the brain is still processing sounds. It is important to understand that hearing aids wont restore lost hearing, but it can keep the hearing you have from deteriorating as quickly, which can be important. There is no sense in losing your ability to hear when there are aids to improve your quality of life and help the condition from getting worse. Call Now! Spots Are Limited.

we call Israel its past, its present, its people, and above all, what it means. We go together as a community, and it will be the trip of a lifetime, he said, whether youve been to Israel a hundred times or never yet. Dr. Robert Bloom, an industrial psychologist who has been on a number Israel tours, said, We went to places and got to feel things Ive never felt before in Israel. Knowing that I could figuratively almost reach out and touch Abraham, Isaac and Jacob It made the things you read and learn about all so real. Visits to Israels holiest places, including Hevron, city of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, Rachels Tomb and Tzefat contrast with excursions that provide an insiders view of Israels achievements and challenges: an IDF paratrooper base, the Weizmann Institute, the Golan Heights. A visit to the Western Wall creates a time for personal reflection and the opportunity for a bar or bat mitzvah ceremony for those who had not celebrated theirs in the past. A full roster of top-caliber speakers drawn from all walks of Israeli life is made possible through Chabads extensive network of relationships with influential and people, said Rabbi Yossi. Previous year featured talks by Natan Sharansky and Benjamin Netanyahu, Rabbi Adin Even-Yisrael Steinsaltz and Israels chief rabbis, and newsmakers including Knesset members, activists, professors, and heads of Israeli military and intelligence. The trip is sponsored by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI). Describing the trips packed schedule of educational tours of ancient and modern locations, Land & Spirit director Rabbi Boruch Cohen said it would be hard to find the combination of luxury and value that JLI offers in the Land & Spirit Israel Experience. Barry Levin of Longmont, Colorado, is one of the 2012 participants who are planning to join the 2014 trip. Being in our own country, he said, is indescribable. To me its a Jewish experience not Reform, Orthodox, Conservative or anything in between or beyond. It was just a fantastic experience. The Land and Spirit Experience will take March 23 April 1, 2014. For information, contact Rabbi Yossi and visit www.landandspirit.org. An optional five-day journey to Poland on the way to the Holy Land is an added feature. Participants will visit Warsaw, Lublin, Krakow, and the Auschwitz and Madanjek concentration camps, the names themselves recalling centuries of Jewish history and tragedy. The group will fly directly to Israel on March 23 to meet up with others. For information, visit www.landandspirit.org/P oland. Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com One of the greatest sages of the Jewish people was a man named Akiva ben Joseph. (50 C.E. 135 C.E.) This ignorant shepherd whose formal education did not begin until he was 40, rose to be one of the most important rabbis in Jewish history. The background of his early life is unknown, but traditionally he started learning with rabbis Joshua and Eliezer when he was forty. A legend says that his wealthy father-in-law disinherited his daughter Rachel, because he felt that Akiva, who was an ignorant shepherd when they married, would never amount to anything. Akivas wife, Rachel, stood by his side and encouraged him to study even though it was a great hardship for them. He studied for 12 years and when his wife told him that he could study for another 12 years, he was so encouraged that he continued to do so acquiring 24,000 students to his credit. His scholarship led him into developing thee foundations of the Oral Law, the interpretation of the Torah by the rabbis, which was eventually codified into the Mishnah, a part of the Talmud dealing with Jewish practices and laws and their interpretations. It was also his belief that every letter and word of the Torah had special meaning and it was his life study of the holy text that led him to the interpretations still followed today in traditional Judaism. His students studied with him at his academy in Bene Brak, a place where Jewish scholarship flourished. The story of Rabbi Akiva Judis Journal Judi Siegal Unfortunately, Rabbi Akiva lived in a very oppressive time in Jewish history. The Romans ruled Palestine at the time and it was their intention to subjugate their conquered peoples by suppressing culture and religion. In the case of the Jews, this was most distressing because the Romans passed laws forbidding the teaching of Torah. With education an important part of the Jewish faith, this prohibition was stifling to the religious populace. Rabbi Akiva, at the peril of his life, disobeyed the Romans and continued to study. At this trying time in Jewish history, a man named Bar Kochba arose as a Jewish messiah or King-Messenger. Rabbi Akiva believed that Bar Kochba was the promised leader that would overthrow the Romans and restore Jewish rule to the Holy Land. He saw in Bar Kochba the leadership and military might needed to defeat so strong an enemy. Akivas hopes were dashed when the Bar Kochba revolt was crushed by the fall of Betar, the rebel stronghold near Jerusalem in 135 C.E. It was not until modern times, when the State of Israel was created in 1948, were the Jews masters of their own fate in their own land. Akiva continued to teach Torah and Jewish law to his students in defiance of the Roman law. He was eventually captured and imprisoned. Even when incarcerated, he continued to study and teach. He was one of 10 martyrs cruelly put to death by the Romans for teaching Judaism and he and the other rabbis who met the same fate are remembered on Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year, in a special service which honors martyrs. Tradition has it that Rabbi Akiva was tortured by the Romans by using an iron comb to scrape his flesh. Just before he died, he tells his students that all his life he had wanted to fulfill the tenets of the Shema, a prayer that expresses the oneness of God and the commandment to love God with all ones being and heart. Even in great pain, Rabbi Akiva saw his martyrdom as fulfillment of this commandment. Thus ended the life of one of Judaisms greatest sages. In March of 2014, Chabad of Marion County, led by Rabbi Yossi Hecht, will join other Chabad groups on the fourth Land and Spirit trip, described as a journey into the heart and soul of the Land of Israel. New this year, some participants will add an optional excursion to Poland before joining the rest of the group in Israel. In 2013, the name of the trip was changed to The Land & the Spirit Israel Experience. Its not really a mission, explained Rabbi Yossi. Some trips are designed to showcase a particular organizations accomplishments and encourage participation in their cause, but that isnt our purpose. The Land & the Spirit is all about exploring and experiencing the essence of this place Chabad plans VIP Israel Experience March 2014 tive or extremely active 2013 hurricane season. These are: A continuation of the atmospheric climate pattern, which includes a strong west African monsoon, that is responsible for the ongoing era of high activity for Atlantic hurricanes that began in 1995; Warmer-than-average water temperatures in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea; and El Nio is not expected to develop and suppress hurricane formation. This year, oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the Atlantic basin are expected to produce more and stronger hurricanes, said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. These conditions include weaker wind shear, warmer Atlantic waters and conducive winds patterns coming from Africa. NOAAs seasonal hurricane outlook is not a hurricane landfall forecast; it does not predict how many storms will hit land or where a storm will strike. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts will be provided throughout the season by NOAAs National Hurricane Center. New for this hurricane season are improvements to forecast models, data gathering, and the National Hurricane Center communication procedure for post-tropical cyclones. In July, NOAA plans to bring online a new supercomputer that will run an upgraded Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) model that provides significantly enhanced depiction of storm structure and improved storm intensity forecast guidance. Also this year, Doppler radar data will be transmitted in real time from NOAAs Hurricane Hunter aircraft. This will help forecasters better analyze rapidly evolving storm conditions, and these data could further improve the HWRF model forecasts by 10 to 15 percent. The National Weather Service has also made changes to allow for hurricane warnings to remain in effect, or to be newly issued, for storms like Sandy that have become post-tropical. This flexibility allows forecasters to provide a continuous flow of forecast and warning information for evolving or continuing threats. The start of hurricane season is a reminder that our families, businesses and communities need to be ready for the next big storm, said Joe Nimmich, FEMA associate administrator for Response and Recovery. Preparedness today can make a big difference down the line, so update your family emergency plan and make sure your emergency kit is stocked. Learn more about how you can prepare for hurricane season at www.ready.gov/hurricanes.. STORMSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The Atlantic Hurricane season starts on June 1 each year. Here are some facts about hurricanes as compiled by hurricane-facts.com. The word hurricane comes from the Taino Native American word, hurucane, meaning evil spirit of the wind. The first time anyone flew into a hurricane happened in 1943 in the middle of World War II. A tropical storm is classified as a hurricane once winds goes up to 74 miles per hour or higher. Hurricanes are the only weather disasters that have been given their own names (The Weather Channel tried naming winter storms this past year, but it didnt seem to catch on with other news agencies). All hurricanes begin life in a warm moist atmosphere over tropical ocean waters. A typical hurricane can dump 6 inches to a foot of rain in a region. The most violent winds and heaviest rains take place in the eye wall, the ring of clouds and thunderstorms closely surrounding the eye. Every second, a large hurricane releases the energy of 10 atomic bombs. Hurricanes can also produce tornadoes. They are not as strong as regular tornadoes and last only a few minutes. Slow moving hurricanes produce more rainfall and can cause more damage from flooding than fastermoving, more powerful hurricanes. Hurricane Floyd was barely a category I hurricane, but it still managed to mow down 19 million trees and caused over a billion dollars in damage. Most people who die in hurricanes are killed by the walls of sea water that comes inland. In the Pacific Ocean, Hurricanes are generally known as typhoons. In the Indian Ocean they are called tropical cyclones. The man who first gave names to hurricanes was an Australian weather forecaster named C. Wragge in the early 1900s. The first hurricane of the year is given a name beginning with the letter A. Hurricane season is from June to November when the seas are at their warmest and most humid, which are ripe conditions for a hurricane to develop. The planet Jupiter has a hurricane which has been going on for over 300 years. It can be seen as a red spot on the planet.

I think this is her theme song; in fact, I am afraid it is. About half way home, I had a wonderful thought. It was a good day. I can always earn more money, but I can never get another wife quite as nice as the one I have. Then I began humming, Weve only just begun. A verse of Scripture began playing in my mind as we continued our journey home. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:3 KJV). Driving into the driveway, I realized this was not our final destination. God has a wonderful place prepared for those who have put their trust and faith in Him. No tricks about it.The Rev. James L.

It is in the area of questions I feel the most inadequate. Maybe it is because I have not heard all the questions yet, but I think I have come close. I should know that any question that comes from my wife has a hidden agenda. Usually, she asks questions that have no answers. Lets go out for lunch today, she said rather chipperly. Experience should have taught me that when she is chipper, I am in trouble, because I am always the chippee. We have, she explained, some gift cards for a restaurant across town. Then she smiled and that should have been a giveaway for me. When you mention lunch, and when you add the word free to it, I lose all sense of proportion and sanity, if I had any. Actually, to be honest about everything, it does not take much to scratch between my ears and get me purring. Then she threw in a perk that sold me completely on the idea. I love perks. Ill drive. When you think you have heard every trick in the book, somebody writes a new book. Usually, I forget some old trick that she has played, and here was an old one she was playing on me again. On the way to the restaurant, I had a little uneasy feeling, but as we sat down and began ordering, all suspicion faded into thin air. It was a scrumptious lunch and we both enjoyed being together, carefree and enjoying the ambiance. When the check came I casually said, You know, we ought to do this more often. She smiled and nodded her head. When we got into the car, she said somewhat nonchalantly, Oh, by the way, since were here I need to run into the mall and pick up an item. When I heard those words, I froze. Not the mall! I hate shopping, especially at the mall. In my mind, the word mall is the acronym for May All Lose their Loot. Since I do not have that much loot to lose, I do not like going into a place designed to relieve me of my loot. Every time I walk down the center of the mall, I feel eyes glaring at me and piercing to the core of my wallet trying to suck out all my money. And, by the way, they take credit cards. Boy, do they take credit cards. When we parked at the mall parking lot, I indicated I would stay in the car and wait for her. Oh, no, she exclaimed, come on in, you need the exercise. Im just going to run in and run out. Here is where the language differential between husbands and wives shows itself. Unless you are familiar with English with a feminine twist, you are going to get trapped every time. For example: when a husband says the word run, he is referring to speed. When his wife uses the same word it means she is going to run into every store in sight within the mall with one agenda, and that is to buy. For which I can say bye-bye to my money. Why dont local universities offer a degree in wifeology? They have degrees in everything else, why not here where it would be most useful. By the time I reach the equivalent of a doctorate in wifeology, I would be too old to do any good with it. Those who insist there is no difference between a man and a woman have never been married to a woman. Husbands get into trouble assuming their wife is just like them and thinks just like them. Exiting the shopping mall my wife looked at me, smiled and said, Now, wasnt that good exercise. I nodded as I walked to the car with both my hands filled with recently purchased items from the shopping mall. Now I know my part of the exercise was hauling her purchases to the car. Halfway to the car I had to stop and catch my breath and wondered if I would really make it to the car. Come on, were done shopping for the day. Lets get to the car. While driving home I was afraid my wife was going to wear out her smile. This has been a great day. Well have to do this more often. Then she began humming a song, I was tricked and I thought I was trick-proof Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE11 On June 22 you are invited to come to the pool behind the clubhouse for a casual, romantic evening of dancing and pizza. Enjoy the soft breezes of a summer night; listen to the beautiful music played by our favorite deejay, Rich Becotte and enjoy a meal of hot pizza and salad. The cost is only $4 per ticket so see Geri in the office soon as there are a limited number of tickets available. You wont want to miss this night of fun fellowship with your friends and neighbors as they dance and socialize in the quiet comfort of the clubhouse or at pool side. As always you are welcome to bring your own beverages but for those who plan to be poolside, please make sure you dont bring anything in a glass container. Paper or plastic cups are fine. This promises to be a beautiful night of fun; food and entertainment so dont miss out.Food DriveOn Thursday, June 20, the Cherrywood Veterans Club is requesting your support. We are conducting a food drive for Ritz House of Ocala. Ritz House is run by the Volunteers of America in conjunction with the Veterans Administration and the Ocala veteran community. Homeless veterans are given the opportunity to get off of the streets and into a comfortable, safe place to stay for upwards of two years. While at the Ritz House, the clients must obey all of the rules including no alcohol or drugs permitted; they must take part in the programs offered and must find work. Counselors work with the various veterans and treat their problems on both a group level and individual case basis. Work programs; educational opportunities; recreational outlets and other therapies are all available thanks to the hard work of the staff and the commitment of the individual veteran. One meal a day is provided by the government for these men and women and the financial support they receive is not only meager, but takes a long time to establish. For that reason, every six months or so, your Cherrywood Veterans Club conducts a food drive to assist Ritz House. Its easy to give to this project. Simply place a bag of non-perishable food or cleaning supplies by your mail box on Thursday, June 20, and our volunteers will come around at 10 a.m. and pick them up. Cleaning supplies including sponges; paper towels; detergents; scouring powders and the like are always needed as those receiving treatment at Ritz House are responsible for keeping their rooms neat and clean. Ritz House is making a Hot Summer Nights on June 22 in Cherrywood Cherrywood John Everlove big difference in the lives of 50 homeless veterans at a time. You can be a huge help in this effort by giving generously to our food drive. Additionally, a vet representative will be at the clubhouse from 9:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Friday and Saturday to accept your items. The veterans thank you for your support.Bocce BallOn Saturday, June 1, the Bocce Ball group met at their new time and day. Bocce players now get together on Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. at the bocce courts behind the clubhouse. Judging from the turn out, everyone seems to have gotten the word of the new schedule. This is a lively group of good people who enjoy not only playing bocce but also sitting around and socializing. Whether you want to learn the game; play the game or just sit around and root for your favorite teams; you are encouraged to come out and join the fun.100 Days of SummerMonday, June 10, the Cherrywood 100 Days of Summer programs begin with a country style dinner dance. For your dining pleasure, delicious Lees jumbo chicken fingers served with cole slaw and potato salad will be served. Dessert will be fresh watermelon and of course iced tea and lemonade will be available to all. You are always welcome to bring your own beverages if you prefer. Dinner starts at 5:30 and then at 6, Rich Becotte will fire up the music with an emphasis Bocce fans and players.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com on country tunes. Wear your country duds and dance the night away with friends and neighbors. Thanks to Chris Zacco and Cherrywood Property Management, this is a free event for all of our residents but tickets are required. See Geri in the office to get your tickets and sign up because you wont want to miss this always fun night. Now some of you might have guests in town and want to bring them along. The cost for guests 18 and over is $12 while children under 18 are free. Youll need a guest pass from the office along with your tickets so see Geri soon.TriviaOn June 19, at 7 p.m. the big screen will again be filled with questions to challenge our residents. The subject matter will be holidays; the Indy 500 and a bunch of other questions that will challenge and excite our teams. Well maybe not challenge or excite but at least bring a smile or two. Yours truly will be the quiz master and Im hoping for a record turn out that night. Trivia is fun and easy to play. Just come to the clubhouse with a group or by yourself. At the door, youll be charged $1 per person entry fee. Once inside, you will be placed with a team or if you have a team already, youll be with them at a table. Teams are usually made up of three or four people. Each team gets an answer sheet and I will flash the questions on the big screen. At the end, the answer sheets are graded and bragging rights along with small cash prizes are awarded. Bring your own refreshments, liquid and otherwise, and come out to enjoy a night of fun and lackadaisical competition. All proceeds from the night go to the Wounded Warrior Project and thus far, we have contributed over $300 to that charity. Every week more and more people come out to enjoy Trivia; please join us. Blood Donations neededThe Big Red Bus will be at Cherrywoods clubhouse on June 25 from 9 a.m. until noon. There is a great need for fresh whole blood so we are hoping for a great response to this opportunity. Summertime is especially difficult for our local blood banks. Many people have returned to the north while others are down here for vacations. Traffic accidents, illness and other tragedies drain the blood banks supply that constantly needs replenishing. If you can donate, please contact Judy Durst at 352-873-7849 to set up an appointment or just stop by during the hours that the bus is here. The professionals drawing blood will get you in and out quickly and almost painlessly. Be a hero; donate blood.Veterans Appreciation dinnerOn Saturday, July 6, the members of our Cherrywood Veterans Club will be honored with a dinner and program. This year we will be sharing a chicken and ribs dinner specially cooked by Taste Budz on their own open grill. Side dishes will accompany the main course, of course. Entertainment will be provided from 5 until 9 p.m. by the ever popular Kenny CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 19 The Cherrywood Color Guard at the Memorial Day services. Jackson. Those of you who have heard Kenny in the past know that he is a first rate entertainer and for those of you who have not experienced one of his shows, you are in for a treat. Each year the Veterans Club says Thank you to our members for their service in the military and for their continued service to our community. Tickets are only $3 for our vets and their spouses and $7 for all others. We are looking forward to some great food; excellent entertainment and for the opportunity to express our appreciation to all of our veterans. Come join us for a very special evening.Cribbage ClubMondays at 12:30 in the clubhouse card room join the Cherrywood cribbage players as they learn; play; improve their cribbage skills and give each other some good natured kidding. This is a fun group that enjoys the game and is anxious to teach others how to play. If you have any interest at all, please join us. Youll be glad you did. Garden ClubThere will be no Garden Club meetings through the summer months. Last week I erroneously reported that they would be having a meeting in June. Please continue to read your Chirp Magazine and this column in the Citizen for information about their next meeting in the fall. Marion County Veterans Resource FairRepresentative Richard Nugent is sponsoring a Veterans Resource Fair on June 22 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Klein Center at the College of Central Florida-Ocala Campus.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 7, 2013 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenRepublicans are upset about President Obamas May 23 foreign-policy address, yet politics aside, its hard to say why. We show this lack of resolve, talking about the war being over, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Fox News Sunday. But four days later in his Memorial Day remarks, Obama said, Our nation is still at war. Why did the earlier speech set off Republicans? He acknowledged that terrorism can never be completely eliminated and that a risk-free society is impossible. He conceded that U.S. military action breeds enemies. He admitted that not every foreign violent organization is a threat to Americans. He even quoted James Madison: No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare. Indeed, Obama said some things that need saying, but will he do what needs doing? More precisely, will he stop doing what shouldnt be done? The speech provides no reason for optimism. For one thing, his premise is wrong: The U.S. government was on a perpetual war footing before the attacks of 9/11, intervening one way or another in many places. The war on terror has just been more visible. Obama says he wants to understand the roots of terrorism, but he just repeats bromides. These threats dont arise in a vacuum, he said. Most, though not all, of the terrorism we face is fueled by a common ideology a belief by some extremists that Islam is in conflict with the United States and the West. But this implies the extremist ideology arose in a vacuum. Obama shows no understanding that Muslim violence has been a response to generations of Western and most recently American efforts to maintain hegemony in the Muslim world. These efforts have consisted in direct overt and covert intervention, backing for brutal and corrupt dictators and monarchs, and enabling of Israels repression of the Palestinians. From Osama bin Laden on down, the perpetrators of anti-American violence have consistently said so. Despite Obamas acknowledgement of the dangers, to Americans and others, of perpetual U.S. warfare, one strains to find signs of change in the speech. He says our response to terrorism cant depend on military or law enforcement alone, but he still envisions a large role for the military: He says the first order of business is to finish the work of defeating al Qaeda and its associated forces. And, Beyond the Afghan theater, we only target al Qaeda and its associated forces. But its associated forces is a conveniently vague justification for continued U.S. militarism. It goes beyond Congresss 2001 authorization for military force. While Obama promises only to narrow the use of drones and shift responsibility from the CIA to the Pentagon, we cant be sure even this will happen or matter. His presidential policy guidance is classified, and he reserves the authority to target alleged militants who pose a continuing and imminent threat when he decides that other alternatives are unavailable or are too risky. Yet his administration has drained the word imminent of meaning Before any strike is taken, he added, there must be near-certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured the highest standard we can set. But he conceded that his administration has killed an undisclosed number of noncombatants. Independent sources say several hundred have been killed while entire villages live in terror of the next strike. This will not change. Remember that administration targets are only accused of planning attacks. There is no due process, and an oversight board would not change that. Obama defended his killing of American Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen on the grounds that alAwlaki had helped plan attacks, but Obama offered no proof, and investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill says the first efforts to kill Awlaki preceded the terrorist plots he is allegedly linked to. And what about the separate drone killings of al-Awlakis 16-year-old son and other Americans? Obama also renewed his longdormant call for closing Guantanamo but not before the mass hunger strike and force-feedings that the whole world is watching. This all looks more like legacy preparation than real change in policy. Witness Syria and Iran. So why are Republicans fussing? Obama said, We cannot use force everywhere that a radical ideology takes root. For Republicans, thats unAmerican.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). My first encounter with a hurricane, that I remember, was in 1954. We had just moved to a house on a hill in northern New Jersey, a one-story with a basement, facing west. I remember hearing about this storm called Hazel that was cutting across the northeast on its way to Canada, after starting in Haiti where it killed 1,000 people. At that point, I had no idea where Haiti was, but I didnt want something that could kill that many people coming my way. My parents said not to worry, that it was greatly weakened by the time it got to us. I learned a bit about hurricanes then, particularly the fact that the wind comes only from one direction when youre on one side of the storm or another. The wind was brutally strong from the east, but we had our front door open except for the screen door, since we faced west. No air conditioning in those days, incidentally. I sat there fascinated and watched the driving wind and rain, which we seemed to be immune to. But then I saw a tree, about 15 feet tall, blow past the house. Not a branch, mind you, but the whole tree. If I remember right, I went into my room and pulled down the shade. I didnt want to see any more of it. So now Im older and supposedly wiser, and where do I live? Florida, one of the spots where hurricanes strike the U.S. first. My home is surrounded by big trees, too. But in this day and age, we have things like satellite images, constant radar and other tools to tell us when and where a hurricane will strike, and how strong it will be. Most of the time the forecasts are accurate, but occasionally a storm will veer to a new course and surprise people. Just remember Hurricane Charley, which was supposed to hit the Tampa Bay area head-on, but suddenly turned and smashed into Punta Gorda. That was in 2004, when we were hit with the triple whammy of Charley, Frances and Jeanne. The important thing is to be prepared. We should all know about the standard things to keep non-perishable foods, water, flashlights and batteries, a battery-powered radio, etc. Just make sure youre ready to follow the paths of storms, and remember, most tracking coordinates only indicate the center of the storm. Damaging winds and rain can venture hundred of miles from the main path. The Atlantic hurricane season started this week, June 1. Earlier this week, we awoke to find a disturbance in the Gulf that was to move over Florida and create heavy rains. At least it wasnt supposed to produce hurricane-force winds. Lets hope our summer and fall are just as calm. But just in case, be ready. Then you can just sit back and calmly watch those trees blow past your house. However, if you have any 10-year-olds living with you, dont let them watch. It will be something that will stay with them a lifetime.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

That tropical disturbance, which grew in the Gulf earlier this week, is a reminder that hurricane season is here. Meteorologists are predicting an busier than average Atlantic hurricane season; in other words, between June I and Nov. 30, the weather along the East Coast will be predictably unpredictable. When it comes to hurricane preparedness in Florida, residents are often one of two extremes: those who have experienced the devastation that one of these massive storms can wield, worrying that every thunderstorm might be the big one, and the devil-maycare types who wont leave their house until the roof falls in. Both are understandable. Hurricanes are wicked sea monsters, capable of shifting course quickly, pounding the shores with wind and rain strong enough to knock down power lines, uproot trees and gut buildings. Hurricanes can trigger storm surges, tornadoes and catastrophic flooding. There is nothing like a hurricane to remind us of the power of Mother Nature, and on the Florida Peninsula the seaside blessing on three sides of our geography is also its curse. On the other hand, hurricanes are so common that its easy, particularly for lifelong residents, to develop a ho-hum attitude or even hurricane fatigue. After so many years of rushing to grocery stores, gathering emergency supplies, and for those near the coast, boarding up windows, battening down hatches and sitting in traffic jams on evacuation routes, especially when those evacuation routes bring the vehicles here to Marion County many times only to have a light rain pass through it is tempting to forego all the hassle and sit tight until the last possible moment. For the most peaceful summer possible, we suggest a middle ground is the best approach. This is the ideal time to stock up on batteries, flashlights, and even inexpensive generators. Create an emergency kit with these supplies along with bottled water and non-perishable food items. Store them together in a designated spot in the house and conduct family drills so everyone knows what to do. If youre worried about computer data, back it up regularly onto a thumb drive that can be snatched up on the way out the door in the event of evacuation. Sure, it is inconvenient and annoying to deal with hurricanes. But like sticky summers and bugs, they are part of life in Florida. Make an emergency plan, assemble that kit and when the season comes to an end, donate those canned goods to a food bankjust in time for the holidays.

When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, Daddy, you shouldnt wear that suit. And why not, darling? It always gives you a headache next morning.Blonde headacheA blonde went to the doctor to complain about headaches. Noticing she hadnt taken off her headphones at all during the exam, he suggested they might be the cause of her headaches. He told her to take them off. Oh, no. I just couldnt, she said. Without them, Id surely die. Oh, come now, the doctor said, let me help you. And he pulled them off her head. Sure enough, moments later, she was unconscious on the floor. Curious, he picked up the headphones and heard, Breathe in...breathe out...breathe in...breathe out. Splitting thoughtsIf you have a lot of tension and you get a headache, do what it says on the aspirin bottle: Take two aspirin and Keep away from children. Im as sound as a dollar, but Ill get better. The man had a bad headache and went to the bowling alley. His doctor had told him to go and rest someplace where he could hear a pin drop. The hillbillys wife is a pain in the neck, a real headache who can cause lots of strife. The hillbilly said that he does love her still.

I have a splitting headache.Bee StingA man came running to the doctor shouting and screaming in pain. Please, doctor, youve got to help me. Ive been stung by a bee! Dont worry, says the doctor. Ill put some cream on it. You will never find that bee. It must be miles away by now. No, you dont understand! answered the doctor. Ill put some cream on the place you were stung. Oh! It happened in the garden behind my house. No, no, no! said the doctor getting frustrated. I mean on the part of your body the bee stung you. On my finger! screamed the man in pain. The bee stung me on my finger. Which one? the doctor asked. How do I know? All the bees looked alike.LetdownA man lay sprawled across three seats in the Ocala theater. When the usher noticed this, he whispered to the man, Sorry, sir, but youre only allowed one seat. The man groaned, but didnt budge. The usher became impatient. Sir, if you dont get up, Im going to have to call the manager. Once again, the man just groaned. When the usher returned with the manager the two of them tried to move the man, but with no success.

Readers can do their part by staying current on local zoning laws, keeping an eye on local wetlands and speaking up if something looks amiss. Potential problems are much easier to resolve early on than after damage is done, so speaking up soon can often lead to more successful and less contentious outcomes. D ear E arthTalk: What is th e All One Ocean campaign?--Bill ONeill, L os Angeles, CA All One Ocean is a non-profit campaign launched in 2010 by long-time author, activist and organizer Hallie Austen Iglehart with the goal of reducing the amount of plastic and other trash that ends up in the ocean where it compromises the health of marine wildlife and ecosystems. Iglehart was incensed to learn that a million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals and turtles die each year from ingesting plastic in the water columnand created All One Ocean to do something about it. Contrary to popular myth that most ocean pollution is oil spilled from ships, most of it is land-based litter. The most dangerous litter is our throw-away plastic because of its longevity and capacity to increase in toxicity, eventually returning to the human food chain in a more lethal form, reports Iglehart. Much of our plastic ends up in the ocean in giant collections of trash called gyres, created by circular ocean currents, she adds. They trap debris for decades where it continues to break into ever smaller, more toxic pieces, never fully biodegrading. Of particular concern to Iglehart is the fact that much of this carelessly discarded plastic winds up in the bellies of marine life, contaminating not just ocean ecosystems but in some cases the very seafood on our dinner plates. The main project of All One Ocean is the creation and maintenance of permanent, community supported Beach Clean Up Stations, which are essentially boxes containing reusable bags for beach visitors to use in picking up trash during their time on the sand and in the surf. The idea is to empty any garbage into a trash can somewhere (so it can find its way to a landfill instead of out into the ocean) and then ideally return the bag empty to the box. Each clean-up station also provides a sign with information on the extent of the problem.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Road. All veterans living in Marion County are encouraged to attend this informative and educational free event. Spotlight on Memorial DayUnder the over all command of President Bill Mahar, the Cherrywood Veterans Club hosted the Memorial Day observance for a record number of guests. More than 130 people came to honor those who made the supreme sacrifice in service to their country. The program began with the presentation of colors by the Cherrywood Color Guard. Led by Jerry Moscariello, the detail presented the American Flag by reenacting the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima. Richard Becotte, our resident deejay, provided the music for the day starting with the National Anthem. Many in the crowd spontaneously sang along. Following the National Anthem, Steven Jacobs, retired Navy Chief Petty Officer and director of the Veterans Services Office here in Ocala, gave an inspiring speech on the significance of Memorial Day. He made reference to the fact that while most Americans consider Memorial Day the beginning holiday of the summer; veterans and their families know the real meaning is to honor those who gave their all. It is the veteran, as Chief Jacobs said, that understands the significance of words like sacrifice and service. A salute to the Armed Forces followed Chief Jacobss remarks with a playing of the songs for each of the branches of service; Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine. This too was well received with guests singing and clapping along. Solemnity hushed the crowd as the Honor Detail made their way to the monument for the wreath laying ceremony. As the Navy Hymn played, Ruth Hurley read the names of all 30 of our veterans who have passed away over the years, thus keeping our promise to always remember. Thirty small flags, one for each of our deceased members adorned the monument as this years wreath presenters neared. The Honors Detail was made up of Skip Smith and his wife Trude; accompanied by President William Mahar; Peggy Konar and Bugler Joe Gignac. Skip Smith with assistance from his wife Trude and Peggy Konar, rose from his wheel chair. His courage and commitment inspired every one present as he placed the beautiful floral wreath on its stand in front of the flag pole. Our Color Guard dipped their flags in quiet salute. Everyone else stood at attention and joined the flag bearers in silent tribute to the fallen. The silence of this somber moment was broken by the bitter sweet strains of Taps as it echoed forth across the silent crowd. As the last note died, the Honors Party began to withdraw and the color guard prepared to pass in review. After a short break, at noon exactly, Color Party members, Joe Gignac and Marty Duesel manned the flag pole in preparation for the raising of the flag from half staff to full staff. Again, many of the visitors came out to witness this traditional ceremony and as Rich Becotte sounded the National Anthem, the flag went hurriedly up to its honored place at the top of the pole. Proving that Murphy is alive and well, during this ceremony, the flag came loose from one of its grommets and had to be hastily repaired. Thanks to Fred OHern, and the Color Detail, the flag was quickly secured and was hoisted to its rightful place. Following the service, everyone went into the brightly decorated clubhouse. Patriotic flowers and ribbons; flags and centerpieces were in place thanks to Eve Houghtaling and Ida Mahar. Once the visitors had gone inside, the meal was served. Bill Brotherhood and his group of grill masters had the hamburgers and hot dogs cooked to perfection and ready to serve to the hungry throng. Eve Houghtaling was in charge of the servers and she and her crew managed to feed the record number of visitors in just over a half hour. This was a record time for a record crowd. Our kitchen detail headed by Peggy Konar was outstanding in dishing up potato salad; beans; making sure there were plenty of drinks and keeping the serving line supplied. Both kitchen and serving volunteers worked in perfect harmony making the lines go quickly and smoothly. Trude Smith and Wanda Huff manned the fully stocked dessert table. Cakes, pies, cookies, brownies and mouth watering sweets of every description were brought in by donors to be shared by all. Midge Lee, Bill Spangenberg and Jim Houghtaling sold 50/50 tickets and Joe Gignac collected the meal tickets. As you might imagine, an event of this size and scope does not just happen. Detailed planning and the hard work of our volunteers made this meaningful and touching ceremony and the luncheon that followed possible. We here note and thank our volunteers: Color Guard members taking part, Jerry Moscariello, director; Ken Beech; Marty Duesel; Phil Tatro; Dick Francis; Ray Tafilowski; Linda Sisto; Bernice Hasinec; Donna Moran; Marie Ustianowski; Jan Anderson and Al deLaurentis. Our kitchen crew and cooks included, Peggy Konar, supervisor; Marguerite Fiorenza; Genevieve Downs; with Dick Francis handling the drinks. On the grill Bill Brotherhood headed the team of Al Buechter; Dick Straub; Bill Huff; Herb Neubaur and Jerry Giovanniello. On the serving line, Christl Giovanniello; Sandra Brotherhood; Ruth Hurley; Marti Duesel; and Ida Mahar worked with Eve Houghtaling who directed the team. At 2 oclock, the winners of the raffles and 50/50 drawings were announced. Two gift certificates were awarded; one to Beef OBradys and one to Sammys Restaurant. In addition, a floral display was also given out. Three people were winners of the 50/50 drawings. There was some food left over in spite of the record crowd which showed up for our service; testament that everyone had plenty to eat. Jim & Eve Houghtaling delivered the excess food to the Salvation Army Soup Kitchen in Ocala. The Veterans Club would like to thank all of our volunteers and everyone who took their time to pay respects to those who gave up all their tomorrows for us to have this day.From your reporterIts a busy time here at Cherrywood and summer vacations are upon us.

CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 Update your emergency contact listThe recent disasters in Oklahoma highlighted the need for law enforcement to have access to emergency contact information. Now as Floridians brace for the 2013 Hurricane Season and create disaster preparedness plans, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles encourages you to make sure first responders know who to notify if you are in an emergency situation. The Department offers Emergency Contact Information registration online at https://services.flhsmv.gov/eci/ and in driver license offices (to include driver license offices operated by county tax collectors). Floridians who hold a current driver license or identification card can enter up to two contacts into the ECI database. Even if you have registered your information previously, it is a good idea to update your contacts periodically, especially if you or your contacts have moved. It takes only a few minutes, and there is no fee to register. The information you register is only available to law enforcement officers in the event of an emergency. Registering your emergency contact information can provide families and loved ones with added peace of mind, said DHSMV Executive Director Julie L. Jones. We are pleased that more than 7 million Floridians have registered their contacts, but that leaves nearly 10 million whose contact information is not available to police. The Florida Highway Patrol has run into situations where a person involved in a crash had registered their emergency contact information but failed to update it, said FHP Director Col. David Brierton. Outdated information can significantly delay our efforts to provide quick notification to families and loved ones. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Dear EarthTalk: Why are wetlands so important to preserve? -Patricia Mancuso, Erie, PA Wetlands include swamps, marshes, bogs, riverbanks, mangroves, floodplains, rice fields and anywhere else, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), that saturation with water is the dominant factor determining the nature of soil development and the types of plant and animal communities there. They are widespread in every country and on every continent except Antarctica. If all the worlds wetlands were put together, they would take up an area one-third larger than the United States. Environmentalists, biologists and others concerned about the health of the planet and its inhabitants recognize the key role wetlands play in life on Earth. The EPA points out that, besides containing a disproportionately high number of plant and animal species compared to other land forms, wetlands serve a variety of ecological services including feeding downstream waters, trapping floodwaters, recharging groundwater supplies, removing pollution and providing fish and wildlife habitat. Wetlands can also be key drivers of local economies, given their importance to agriculture, recreation and fishing. According to Wetlands International, a global non-profit dedicated to the conservation and restoration of wetlands around the world, wetlands are on the frontline as development pressures increase everyEARTH TALK Why are wetlands so important? where. Wetlands are vulnerable to over-exploitation due to their abundance of fish, fuel and water, reports the group, which works on the ground in 18 countries to educate the public and policymakers about the health of local wetlands and to advocate for better policies. When they are viewed as unproductive or marginal lands, wetlands are targeted for drainage and conversion. The rate of loss and deterioration of wetlands is accelerating in all regions of the world, the group adds. The pressure on wetlands is likely to intensify in the coming decades due to increased global demand for land and water, as well as climate change. The widespread expansion of development in the U.S. in recent decades has brought the issue of wetlands loss to the forefront of debates on zoning and land use planning. One of the key and underlying issues is concern about endangered species: More than a third of species on the U.S. Endangered Species List live only in wetlands and almost half use them at some time during their lifecycles. While the issue lingers on in municipal planning meetings around the country, the federal government does what it can to protect wetlands. It does so through regulations spelled out in the Clean Water Act, which include providing tax incentives for selling or giving wetlands to land trusts or other conservation groups, via cooperative efforts with state and local entities, and by acquiring wetlands outright to add acreage to public lands systems.

Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Cheer up, Lamb. Your emotional impasse will lift once you allow your highly tuned sense of justice to guide you on what to do about an associates questionable behavior. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) News about a project you hoped to work on might need more clarification. Take nothing just on faith. Draw up a list of questions, and insist on each being fully answered. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Giving your time to help others is fine. But dont lose sight of your own needs. Make plans for an energy-restoring getaway with that very special person in your life. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Congratulate yourself on getting that difficult job done to everyones satisfaction. This could be the first of many such challenges you might be offered down the line. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) With your enthusiasm soaring again, you feel ready to tackle a tough new assignment. Good for you! And remember: Dont be too proud to accept help when its offered. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Cupid rules the week for single Virgos eager to make a romantic connection. Meanwhile, Virgo couples experience renewed commitment in their relationships. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Home and work issues vie for your attention through early next week. Rely on your Libran sense of balance to keep you from being overwhelmed by either side. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Creative projects might have to go on standby as you tackle other matters making demands on your time and energy. Things should ease by the middle of next week. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your energies are high, and so are your aspirations. But be careful not to let work dominate the week. Its also important to spend time with family and friends. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Its a good time to set aside your pride and stop nursing those hurt feelings. Instead, consider restoring relationships you want to have back in your life. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might be miffed at not being shown more appreciation for your hard work. But dont brood over it. Recognition comes in its own time and in its own way. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) With your inner creative juices starting to boil and bubble, this is a good time to launch a new arts-related project, or go back and restart the one you had set aside. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. BY ENID B. JONES Special to the CitizenThe next meeting of the Marion Oaks Democratic Club will be Monday, June 17, at 7 p.m. at the Marion Oaks Community Center, Building B. At the April meeting, members welcomed speaker Dr. Joyce Blake, Democratic State Committee Woman, whose position allows her to move around the state in support of the Democratic Party as liaison between the county and state. She was also elected chair for Congressional District 3 which encompasses several counties. One of the requirements of her position is to volunteer for various state committees, clubs and caucuses hence she was able to share with us issues that can impact the operation of our MODC The Democratic Executive Committee is focusing on the 2014 mid-term election to elect a democratic governor. Our work includes raising funds to support of candidates who will be emerging soon. Attendance to state convention in October in Orlando would be a great source of information on candidates and other issues in the party. The convention is open to everyone. Dr. Blake mentioned that there is also focus on two mayoral elections in the state in the hope that if democrats are elected that will provide a boost to build from the bottom up in expanding the party in the state. The build-up is very important as there is no democrat in Marion County elected positions so grass roots efforts are needed to support candidates for local elections. Another strategy for the Committee is to have boots on the ground in all communities and populations to encourage potential candidates. To enhance the work in the community changes were made to the By-laws of Marion County Democratic Party such that instead of requiring Precinct Captains in the ratio of one man and one woman per 1,000 Democrats the new requirement will be one man and one woman per 1,000 voters in the precinct. This will serve to increase the number of individuals who can serve as Precinct Captains. Dr. Blake also talked about the newly formed Democratic Womens Club which will deal specifically with issues related to women in the county. The meetings will be held the second Thursday each month at 6:30 p.m. at DEC Headquarters (601 S.W. 1st Ave., Ocala). The search is on for committee members for this new club. Further, the United Auto Workers Retired provided a bus to transport interested individuals to visit with elected members of the Legislature in Tallahassee on April 24. This was an opportunity to meet face to face with legislators to express your concerns and share ideas. Her comments were timely and very informative.

Read the classifieds As one big alleged exrortion plot wa revealed, Marion County deputies are warning people about scam artists. The alleged extortion occurred this week. Sebrina Denise Hampton, of Southwest 15th Place, Ocala, was accused of extortion after a case involving a local woman. According to the first appearance affidavit, Hampton was arrested for organized fraud and grand theft involving the Ross Department Store in Ocala, and involved the victim by calling her and allegedly saying she needed money for attorney fees, and if the victime didnt help her, Hampton would involve her in discussions with the police and have her arrested. Hampton wanted payments of $100, but later upped that to $500, and wanted the victim to sign a paper that she would pay for four years. The victim contacted deputies, and when she and Hampton met at a bank on State Road 200, deputies were watching. The victim had been given money that had been photo copied. When she signed the paper and gave it to Hampton, deputies took Hampton into custody in the parking lot and took her to jail, where a search turned up the money in her bra. Sheriffs detectives are looking for a couple suspected in a scam targeting senior citizens. Detectives want people to know how the scam works: a couple, white male/white female, approach a homeowner and make an unsolicited bid to do some kind of handyman Extortion, scams keep deputies busy work. In one case, the male did some tree service; in another case, the male filled cracks in a driveway. The couple finds a way to get inside the home to steal, by asking to use the bathroom or for a glass of water. The suspects are both in their early 20s. The male has a dark crew cut; he is tall and slim; and may identify himself as Willie. The female may spend time holding a 1-year-old baby. Victims say the couple is driving a 4-door late model dark gray pickup with yellow or orange stripes down the side. If you have had interaction with this suspect couple, please call (352) 438-5920. If this couple comes to your home, please call 911. An Ocala man was accused of cashing fraudulent checks drawn on Wells Fargo Bank from a company in Sarasota, which complained about the action on its account. Michael Graves of Northwest 2nd Avenue was taken into custody at a bank in Ocala, but one of the checks was cashed at Wells Fargo bank on State Road 200. He told police that he was approached by two men, that they spent the night at a motel at State Road 40 and the Interstate, and the next day he was driven around to cash the checks. Deputies are checking for the men, one of whom was identified as being from Decatur, Ga.

BY BARB DEDICS Special to the CitizenMore than 160 citizens recently completed classes offered to the public known as the Marion County Sheriff s Citizens and Partnership (CAP) Academy. Thanks to Sheriff Chris Blair, this the first of many sessions being offered to the public in over a decade. The three-month sessions started in early March and were held weekly. Citizens (including myself) are proud and honored to have been given this opportunity of hearing and seeing the inside scoop of the many departments within the Marion County Sheriffs Office (MCSO). Sessions included various speakers from, but not limited to the following departments: Records, Budget, Officer Training, Internal Affairs, Search and Seizure, Surveillance Techniques, Booking, Safety Precautions, Patrol Operations, Bomb Squad Techs, SWAT Team Operations, Violent Crimes, Cargo Theft and Cold Cases. Additionally, tours were given of the MCSO Jail, Inmate Work Farm, Garage and various vehicles, State of the Art Emergency Control Center and the MC Courthouse. For those interested in attending the next session which will start in August, please contact Carolyn Fender at CFender@marionso.com or Jenifer Lowe at JLowe@marionso.com. These ladies are marvelous organizers and very dedicated to this program. This is truly to your benefit to learn what these men and women do for this county on a limited budget. Are you aware that there are approximately 750 paid employees within the MCSO....and approximately 700 volunteers who serve in various capacites? The volunteers alone save county taxpayers almost $3 million. You can be sure to learn something new every week. Friday, June 7, 2013 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 2~ Friday, June 7, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Citizens graduate from academy Riders on the bus to the courthouse. PHOTO BY BARB DEDICSHere are the residents who completed the Citizens Academy. BY CAROLYN SLOCUMB Special to the CitizenWhat better way to begin the Memorial Day weekend than to have one of our own residents go on the Honor Flight to Washington, DC. Jack Sheidler was on the plane for the trip last October, but because of mechanical problems, that flight was cancelled. However, last Thursday the plane was here, the weather was beautiful, and over 80 World War II veterans made the trip to our nations capital. This flight was the sixth and last Honor Flight from Ocala. Over 600 veterans from the Ocala area have been on the flights from here. Ocala ranks third in the country in the number of veterans honored with this trip. Each veteran had an assigned attendant with him/her for the entire day. Jack said he was honored to have Sheriff Chris Blair sit with him for part of the flight. The plane left Ocala International Airport very early Thursday morning (May 23), and returned that evening a little after 9. The flight began with breakfast being served cereal, fruit, and yogurt. The plane landed at the Baltimore-Washington Airport where the honorees were met by buses. The vets were divided into three groups red white blue. Jack was in the red hat group. The first stop was at the Capitol where they were greeted by Congressmen and a drum and bugle corps. Jack said just standing in the Rotunda of the Capitol was a thrill. Next stop on the tour was the World War II Memorial; Jack got to see the section in honor of those who served from Ohio (he is from Ohio). After enjoying a box lunch, it was back on the buses to Arlington National Cemetery. They witnessed a very moving ceremony of the Changing of the Guard, and also the presentation of flowers by family members. Following this, it was back to the buses for the journey back to the airport for the return trip to Ocala. A hot meal of meatloaf and all the trimmings was served on the return trip. As the plane approached the Ocala runway, Jack said they could see the flood lights and the hundreds of people waving flags to welcome them home. Also, the Kingdom of the Sun Band was playing and two fire trucks greeted the plane with the honor spray, fireworks lighted the sky, and the ladder truck had the American flag flying from the extended ladder. Jack said that when he was asked what was the highlight of the trip his response was the welcome home reception at the Ocala airport. Margene, Jacks wife of 68 years, was right there on the front row to meet her hero. It was also Margenes 89th birthday, but she said she couldnt have wished for anything more than to see Jack get this trip. Along with Margene, there were about 20 more Quail Meadow residents there to greet Jack. Quail Meadow had another resident on this trip; Teresa Bachand was one of the assistants on the plane. I must say, this is a night I will always remember. Jack Sheidler was called to serve in the Navy in September, 1943 and he served until May 1946. Most of his time was spent at Pearl Harbor. He took a short leave in 1945 and went home to marry Margene. By the way, he still has his original dog tags. After completing his service time, Jack and Margene made their home in Ohio. Now let me tell you a little bit about Jack and Margenethey have been residents of Quail Meadow since November 2000. After living in several other Florida locations, they have settled in Quail Meadow. They migrated to the Sunshine State from a small town in northwest Ohio. Margene retired from teaching social studies and geography in a junior high school. Jack retired from the post office. He worked as a clerk for 10 years, and then moved on to a Rural Route. He delivered the mail for over 20 years. He said that he and Margene were fortunate to be able to retire from their jobs at the same time. Jack said that after over 20 years of driving the country roads during, rain, snow and sleet, he was ready for the Florida lifestyle. Their favorite hobby is travel. Jack and Margene have many memories of their numerous trips. They have visited all 50 states and most of the National Parks, as well as many foreign countries. Their favorite form of travel now is either by cruise ship or bus. Several years ago they were members of the Airstream Club and traveled with their own trailer. Margene said that living full time in a travel trailer was just too close for comfort. In their spare time, Jack and Margene take care of the QM library. They regularly sort the books and duplicates are either donated to the Hospice Thrift Store or the Marion County Library. This veteran enjoyed his trip on the final Honor Flight The crowd waited for the flight from Washington to arrive. Jack and Margene Scheidler after his arrival.

Ocala Eye and Hospice partnered to have the annual Frank Polak Memorial bicycle ride. The ride has raised several thousand dollars for Hospice over the years. Just before the 8 a.m. start, groups had an opportunity for team photos. The ride got under way as the Marion Sheriffs motorcycle unit led them off with lights and sirens. Several sheriff cruisers were also present to run interference for the bicycle riders. Three different length rides were available depending on your ability. Riders $40 donation got them a fully staffed ride of 80, 62, or 30 miles. There was a rest stop with chairs, food with beverages and portable shelter to keep the sun away. There was no rain which was good for narrow tires many riders had. Pastries were available at the start for riders to stock up on calories for the long ride ahead of them. The top photo shows the riders getting ready to start. STORY AND PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELAbove, left, motorcycle officers get ready to escort the riders. Top right, the scene at the rest stop. 107th birthdayJack Silverman of Ocala celebrated his 107th birthday on June 1. He was honored by his daughter, Bobbie Seidel, a resident of Stone Creek. Almost three quarters of a million undocumented individuals are estimated to live in Florida, many thousands of whom are migrants and other farmworkers who live a shadowy existence among us right here in Marion County. They provide the backbone upon which our billion dollar horse and agricultural industries prosper and service and construction enterprises rely. When the Friday Forum next meets for lunch at Buffet City in Ocala on June 14, a panel of three area activists will address their compelling and urgent needs as well as those of employers seeking both skilled and unskilled labor while the larger community is called upon to provide emergency humanitarian support. Congress, meanwhile continues to grapple with a major overhaul in our immigration laws in light of border security concerns as well as increasing appreciation for the need to integrate into full membership in our society the approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants now living in the United States by providing them with a path to citizenship. Speakers are Phil Kellerman of Harvest of Hope Foundation, Rev. Bob Miller of the Ocala Farm Ministry and Forum tackles migrants, immigration PLEASESEEFORUM, PAGE3 In its 2013 Atlantic hurricane season outlook issued in May, NOAAs Climate Prediction Center is forecasting an active or extremely active season this year. For the six-month hurricane season, which began June 1, NOAAs Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook says there is a 70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 7 to 11 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). These ranges are well above the seasonal average of 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes. With the devastation of Sandy fresh in our minds, and another active season predicted, everyone at NOAA is committed to providing life-saving forecasts in the face of these storms and ensuring that Americans are prepared and ready ahead of time. said Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., NOAA acting administrator. As we saw first-hand with Sandy, its important to remember that tropical storm and hurricane impacts are not limited to the coastline. Strong winds, torrential rain, flooding, and tornadoes often threaten inland areas far from where the storm first makes landfall.
