Slay noted that it would be costly to provide bus service to the southwest area. That didnt deter a couple of people from saying that a bus service was needed. Others pointed out, though, that it would be hard for the elderly population to get to a central bus stop for pickup. There would be a problem, Slay said, with access and the maneuverability of the buses in some of the developments. That means that people would have to travel to a central point. In other matters, Slay spoke about the 38th Avenue project, which will be built parallel to the Interstate on the west side of the highway. He also mentioned a 49th Avenue extension, which would tie in to the new 38th Avenue. The proposed interchange at 95th Street was discussed. Slay said the matter has been reviewed by the state and is now in the hands of the federal officials. A concern has been expressed, he said, about merging traffic on and off the highway, because the truck weigh station is located just north of the proposed access point at 95th Street. The project has been a bone of contention with environmentalists and others who say it is not necessary and would hurt the living conditions in that part of the area. Others note, however, that it would enhance the chances for economic development in areas surrounding the exit. Slay also spent part of his time talking about MPO funding, primarily about the local gas tax, which is somewhere about 12 cents a gallon. The next meeting of the Coalition will be July 15, the third Monday, rather than the usual time of the second Monday. 28~ Friday, June 14, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Fly your flag today: Its Flag Day Buses not likely for 200 Corridor PHOTO BY JIM CLARKGreg Slay speaks to the State Road 200 Coalition.

Work has started on the historic heart of Ocala, which is undergoing minor improvements, which are expected to be complete by Oct. 1. The renovation process will likely not cause significant interference with daily pedestrian movement and traffic circulation. Sidewalks and the frontage road will remain open, except during demolition operations, construction work or loading/unloading of equipment. Impact on parking will be minimal, with a multitude of public parking still available: http://www.feeldowntownocala.com/parking-downtown/. Scheduled programs or events between these dates may have to be relocated to other downtown areas. In order to provide a premier event venue, a permanent built-in stage will be attached to the gazebo with accessible ramps and steps. Maintenance issues with the center star and sound system will be addressed and corrected. Delineated spaces within the space will be created, as well as clean lines of slight by altering vertical obstructions. Square gets a facelift Health Management Associates, Inc.

fore the end of the year. During this time, the parties will seek all necessary state and local government regulatory approvals. We are pleased to be moving this partnership between Munroe Regional, Health Management and UF Health Shands Hospital forward as we focus our efforts toward the growth of Munroe Regional, its medical staff and Marion County and surrounding communities, said Alan Levine, Senior Vice President and Florida Group President for Health Management Associates. Our partnership will invest in, and build upon, the success and reputation for great care that Munroe Regionals physicians, nurses and other caregivers already provide. By combining the talents of Munroe Regional, the resources of Health Management and the academic strength of UF Health Shands Hospital, the partnership will provide the region the best opportunity to strengthen and improve the health of the community for years to come. However, the agreement comes at a time when HMA, based in Naples, Florida, has been the subject of stories in that area concerning problems within the company. On May 2, the Naples Daily News reported that the Securities and Exchange Commission was investigating the firm and had asked for information on its accounting practices. Then in early June, the president and CEO announced his retirement, saying he was going to lead a Mormon mission, according to the newspaper. Then on June 5, the company announced it was cutting some benefits to 1,400 employees. Last Sunday, the company was featured on CBS Televisions Minutes, where former employees stated they were pressured to admit patients regardless of medical need to achieve quotas. The company denied the accusations. According to a news release, Health Management and its statewide clinical partner, UF Health Shands Hospital, will well position Munroe Regional as it continues to invest in clinical integration. UF Health Shands Hospital and Munroe Regional will develop a clinical affiliation committee composed of physicians to help guide research and clinical relationships that benefit patients, Marion County and surrounding communities. Weve had a longstanding relationship with Munroe Regional and are excited about the opportunity to strengthen that relationship in partnership with Health Management, said Timothy Goldfarb, CEO of Shands HealthCare. Under the lease agreement, Health Management will keep Munroe Regionals existing charity care policy, and the hospital will operate under the guidance of a local Board of Trustees consisting of physicians and local community leaders who share a passion for high quality care and service. Further, Munroe Regional will begin paying annual property taxes, and generating funds to support law enforcement, schools and other local community needs. After a very thorough review process, we are proud to be moving forward with Health Management and UF Health Shands Hospital two Florida organizations with excellent track records of service to the communities they operate in, said Jon Kurtz, Chairman of the Marion County Hospital District Board. UF Healths academic leadership in Florida, combined with Health Managements footprint and experience operating hospitals in Floridas unique environment are coming together with Munroe Regionals legacy of service to create a transformational opportunity for Marion County.Friday, June 14, 2013 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 2~ Friday, June 14, 2013 www.smcitizen.com National Cremation Society Considering Cremation?

Lumina Kit Cayer Gouvin, 89 Stonington, Conn. On Saturday, June 8, 2013, Marie Rose Lumina Kit Cayer Gouvin died peacefully at her home. She led a remarkable life filled with love, family, and faith. Kit was a relentlessly upbeat, positive, and creative person. She had faith that things would work out for the best. She was best known for her crafts and her baking. She made and gave away hundreds of Raggedy Anne dolls and Holly Hobby dolls and Father Christmases and quilts of every description. She belonged to several quilting groups in Westerly, Rhode Island and Ocala, Fla. The act of quilting suited her well. With her characteristic creativity and hard work she transformed scraps of cloth into works of art. We cannot count how many wedding cakes, birthday cakes, Christmas cookies, and banana breads she made in her life. All we know is that each one was an act of love. Kits devotion to spiritual matters sustained her through difficult times and gave her a joyful appreciation for good times. Her favorite prayer was the quick request: Dear God, give me strength! Apparently, He did. She was a longtime communicant at St. Michaels church in Pawcatuck, Conn., and Queen of Peace church in Ocala. Among many volunteer roles she played in her life, she served in the St. Michaels Ladies Guild and the Queen of Peace CCW. She was a fun-loving person an avid reader and an enthusiastic player of games. She loved to play Scrabble, Upwords and Rumikub or just a hand of gin rummy. She was a friend to many and, through her work as a hospice volunteer, a comfort to others at the most difficult phase in life. Her family and friends will miss her dearly, but she lives on through the love she shared and the lessons she taught. Born Oct. 19, 1923, in Alton, R.I., Kit was the daughter of Joseph Cayer and Lumina Cinq Mars Cayer. She grew up on a farm and her nickname came from an old workhorse named Kit. She bore that name well, always working tirelessly and without complaint as a wife, a mother, a volunteer, a waitress at several popular restaurants, and as a cafeteria attendant at the Westerly Hospital. Kit graduated from Westerly High School in the class of 1941. She immediately went to work at the Bradford Dyeing Association where she tested parachute silk and other materials bound for military use. Like countless other men and women of her era, she fought World War II here on the home front. In the middle of the war she met Paul N.H. Gouvin of Pawcatuck, Conn., who served in the Army in the South Pacific with Kits brother Joe. Just as Paul and Joe were being sent back to the states after their tour of duty in the Pacific, Joe received a serious injury and asked Paul to go to the Cayer farm to let everyone know he was okay and would be home soon. That fortuitous trip to the farm eventually resulted in Kit and Paul getting married on June 1, 1946, after Paul returned from a tour of duty in Europe. They remained married until Paul died Jan. 31, 1999. They had nine children together. Kit often joked that she never had a headache. She is survived by all of her children, listed here with their spouses, Theresa Gouvin Feeley and Richard Feeley of Burlington, Vt., Francine Bernard of West Palm Beach, Doris King Longo and Frank Longo of Mystic, Conn., Pauline Gouvin of St. Charles, Mo., Catherine Gouvin of Mystic, Conn., John Gouvin and Tess Chiofi Gouvin of Richmond, Vt., Janette Gouvin Centracchio and Barry Centracchio of Narragansett, R.I., Eric Gouvin and Beth Lovejoy of Longmeadow, Mass., and Pierre Gouvin of Mystic, Conn. In addition, she is survived by twelve grandchildren, Brad Feeley, Seth Feeley, Claire Rose Bernard, Max Bernard, Tyler King, Amy King Snell, Emily Morris, Elizabeth Kircher, Thomas Kircher, Lucy Gouvin, Joe Gouvin and Julia GouvinMoffat. Eight great-grandchildren also survive her, Mollie and Summer Feeley, Grayson and Maggie Morris, Ethan Kircher Bright, Tyler King Jr. and Lily and Nora Snell. Many of her siblings survive her as well: her sisters, Cecile OKeefe, Louise (and Eric) Burton, Bette Gerrish and Theresa Pharris; and her brothers, Joseph (and Kay) Cayer and Wilfred (and Hazel) Cayer. She was predeceased by her brothers, Fred Cayer and Paul Cayer. She is also survived by her sisters-inlaw, Nancy Guthrie Cayer, Patricia Gouvin; and her brother-in-law, Donald Gouvin; along with numerous nieces and nephews. Finally, she is also survived by her dear friend, Ed Pritchard of Ocala. There will be visiting hours from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday, June 14 at St. Mary Mother of the Redeemer Church, 69 Groton Long Point Road, Groton, Conn., to be followed immediately by a funeral mass at 11 a.m. In the fall, the family plans to have a memorial mass at Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Ocala with interment at the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell next to her husband.

OBITUARY Pop cornMy father always proposed a toast before he disciplined me. Thats funny! What was it? Bottoms up, son! The barber was going to hand his business over to his son, but the lad disowned his father after he had taken a good look at his roots. It was a terrible case of heir loss. By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks hes wrong. Its hard for a five-foot-six father to explain to his six-footone son why junk food is bad for you. Father to unwelcome suitor: I dont want my daughter tied to a hopeless idiot all her life. Suitor: Of course not, sir. Then I take it I have your consent?NumerousThree fathers were in a hospital waiting for waiting for their babies to be born. A nurse came out and told the first father, Congratulations youre the father of twins! He said, Great! I am the manager for the Minnesota Twins. Later, another nurse came out and told the second father, Congratulations youre the father of triplets. He said, Thats cool! I work for 3M. Then the third father opened the window and jumped out. When the third nurse came out, and asked, Wheres the third father? One of the other fathers said, Oh he jumped out the window. The nurse asked, Why? He replied, He works for Seven Up!

Take someone special with you. TAURU S ( April 20 to May 20) Take a little restorative time out of your busy life. Go somewhere quiet this weekend. Or just close the door, turn on the answering machine and pretend youre away. GEMIN I (May 21 to J une 20) Your advice might be in demand by family and friends this week. But reserve time for yourself to investigate a project that could have unexpected potential. CA NCE R (June 21 to J uly 22) Work-related issues demand your attention early in the week. Family matters dominate Thursday and Friday. But the weekend is yours to spend as you please. LE O (July 23 to Aug 22) Try to keep your temper in check as you deal with someone who seems to enjoy showing disrespect. Losing your Leonine cool might be just what the goader hopes to see. VIRG O ( Aug 23 to Sept. 22) A heated confrontation needs some cool-off time before it boils over. Better to step away than to try to win an argument where emotions overrule the facts. LIBRA ( Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Someone very special in your life finally sends that reassuring message youve been hoping for. You can now devote more time to the tasks you had put aside. SCORP IO ( Oct. 23 to No v. 21) Job pressures begin to ease by the weeks end, leaving you time to relax and restore your energy levels before you face next weeks emerging challenges. SAGI TTARIU S (No v. 22 to D ec. 21) Your spiritual strength helps calm a friend who might be facing an unsettling change in his or her life. An offer to help comes from a surprising source. CA P RICORN (Dec. 22 to J an. 19) By midweek you could learn some surprising facts about an associate that might cause you to reconsider a longheld view about someone in your past. A QUARIU S (Jan. 20 to Feb 18) One of those rarefor-you darker moods sets in the early part of the week. But by Thursday, the clouds lift and youre back doing nice things for people in need. P ISCE S ( Feb 19 to M arch 20) Use that sharp Piscean perceptiveness to reel in more information about a promising offer so that you have the facts to back up whatever decision you make.

He loves to ride in the car but most of all to snuggle with his people. He is also fine with other small dogs. Hes already neutered, up to date on all shots, and on heartworm preventative. Buddy does have a special need in that hes on a prescription diet for kidney stones. Its possible it could clear up but its also possible he would need that diet from now on. When you call Mary she will give you the details. Buddy will also require a dental later this year, as most senior dogs need, and you can work with Mary around that. If youre a senior a senior dog could be the perfect dog for you. Please call Mary at 352-528-0270 to meet Buddy and help him find his new forever home. On Page 17 is a current picture of tuxedo cats Pando and Coco at a year old. They came into foster care as tiny kittens and have been there for just over a year. Coco has adopted Panda as his step sister since all their siblings have gone to forever homes. Now its time that they had a forever home of their own, together of course. These elegant beauties are great company for each other, which makes it easier for you to care for them. They wont tire you out like kittens can, yet theyre still very young and lively. Think of all the fun you can have high-fiving those cute little white mittens. If you can only adopt one cat, Arlene has Ebony and Smokey available. These young cats have gone through the trap, neuter, release program since the beginning of the year. They are neutered, have all their shots including rabies and are microchipped. Arlene has socialized them for the past six months so they will make wonderful pets. Please give her a call at 352-8759761 to meet one or all of these fantastic felines.Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. PAWSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 This is terrier mix Buddy. Fathers Day is Sunday. The rst Fathers Day was celebrated in 1910. Back then fathers didnt have it nearly as good as fathers of today; but they did have a few advantages: Back then, if a father put a roof over his familys head, he was a success. Today, it takes a roof, pool, TVs, and three-car garage. Back then, fathers could help their children with their school work. Today, fathers rely on their kids to teach them how to work the computer and the smart phone. Back then, fathers passed on clothing to their sons. Today, kids wouldnt touch Dads clothes if they were sliding naked down an icicle. Back then, a father came home from work to find his wife and children at the supper table with a home-cooked meal. Today, a father comes home to a note, Jimmys at baseball, Cindys at gymnastics, Im at adult-ed; pizza in fridge.A tall taleThe father knocked on the bathroom door where his teenage daughter had been taking a bath for over an hour. Cindy! Just how long will you be in that bathtub? From the other side of the door came the reply: Oh Daddy! Water doesnt affect your height. Im still 5-4!Weighty answerA college freshman came home after being away all semester. Her father looked her up and down, then said, Arent you a lot thinner than when you went away? Yes I am, Dad, the girl admitted. I weigh 120 pounds stripped for gym. The father stared at her for a moment in horrified amazement. Finally, he shouted, Well, tell me this. Just who is Jim?Hows that?The flustered father of twins, his first babies, had them out in a carriage when a neighbor approached and asked their names. Steak and Kidney, the father answered. What? Oh! the father said, its Kate and Sydney.

As a veterans organization, we are proud to be strong supporters of the Ritz House and thus the reason for our planned food drive on June 20. (See lead article in this column) Both Richard and Wayne, who for reasons of confidentiality are not using their last names, expressed their deep appreciation for all that is being done for them by our members. Many of our group expressed not only encouragement to these two men but also sincere compassion. We thanked our guest speakers with Cherrywood Veterans Club coffee mugs. In addition to our guest speakers, we welcomed four new members to the club. They are Kenneth McLeod, U.S. Army; Martin Gatley, U.S. Air Force; Paul Groendyke, U.S. Navy and Jim Beckman, U.S. Air Force. Under new business, the upcoming Veterans appreciation dinner was discussed and tickets went on sale. We remind all residents of Cherrywood that our Veterans Club meetings are open to everyone. We are proud of what we do and our guest speakers are often able to give information that is worthwhile to not only veterans but to every resident.TravelIP Casino Resort & Spa package now on sale through Oras Travel for all Cherrywood residents.

For the most part, these profiles of people and events have been well received and for that I am grateful. Many of our residents opened their homes and their lives to me, your humble correspondent and to you, their fellow citizens. Each has had a story about over coming hardship; enduring difficult conditions; making successes from the ashes of failure. It is my and their hope that these stories have been an inspiration to you, the reader. In the events features such as the whimsical piece about Santa Claus, I endeavored to share a smile or two with you. Of the more somber pieces like that of Memorial Day and the Honor Flight I have tried to inform and share a tear or two. With every story, my purpose has been to instill a sense of pride in all those who shared their experiences and those who read them; pride in self; pride in our fellow man and pride in our country. In this day and age when there is nothing but bad news, I attempted to give you back what you all have given me; an abiding hope for the future. With the coming of summer vacations, I will be taking a break from the Spotlight articles until September. Should there be some unforeseen incident or event that merits mention, this section will reappear. I would like to express my sincere thanks to all of those who participated in making the Spotlight such a success; especially you, the readers of the Citizen. Have a safe and happy summer.From your reporterElaine and John Rozak were among the many Cherrywood residents who attended the Honor Flight return. Unfortunately, their name was misspelled in the article and for that I am sincerely sorry. It was a glorious night of shared celebration and it was unfortunate their name appeared incorrectly.

GLORIA VANDERBILT: It Seemed Important at the Time By Gloria Vanderbilt CNN journalist Anderson Cooper calls his mothers kiss-and-tell romance memoir a nice little read that people should enjoy. The subtitle could easily be he seemed important at the time because both lovers and husbands often had a short shelf life. The cover tells a lot before even reading the first page. A row of lovers appearlike Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando, and Howard Hughes for starters. There would be many others and some married. But listen to Gloria admonishing readers not to follow her example: Ive been involved with three married men in my life. Take it from me, if you are even tempteddont. She identifies two of themRoald Dahl, who she says meant nothing to her and was something of a dry lemon who gifted her with an unpublished story. Bill Paley was another. But she does not name the photographer who was Number 3, leaving readers to wonder. The rush to discard one lover in order to move on to another suggests that these were crushes more than true romances. Was poor little rich girl looking for a father in these early liaisons? She questions that herself. Certainly it would explain her marriage to the legendary and much older conductor Leopold Stokowski. As a child Glorias cold aunt Gertrude Whitney made her a virtual prisoner. It seems natural to celebrate her freedom and extraordinary beauty by takBookmark Pat Wellington A kiss and tell memoir ing various lovers and they were diverse. And you have to admire her energy. All that lovemaking and she still found time to paint, design, act, and write. In this little book she skims over her abysmal childhood and ushers us into her teens when, enamored with actor Van Heflin, she became engaged to him briefly. Then she married her first husband, discovering, she says, that he was a pig. There followed Stokowski and two sons, then director Sidney Lumet, and finally, the love of her life, Wyatt Cooper. Little space is devoted to the tragedy of losing a child. (Andersons older brother Carter hurled himself from an upper story window to his death.) Perhaps it makes sense for an older woman to write such a memoir. After all, she had many years to collect lovers. But dont look for substance or deathless prose here. This frothy, gossipy book can be read in an hour or two. Those who find the Vanderbilts fascinating will love the wonderful photographs throughout.

Let your pantry serve as your starting point for creating memorable meals the family will love.Proper Pantry PracticesBefore letting those creative culinary juices flow, take inventory of your pantry. If you find items that are too old, that have never been touched, or that you hardly ever use get rid of them. Look closely at the ingredient list to decide which items to keep. Get rid of items filled with corn syrup and artificial sweeteners and colors. Foods with fewer ingredients and pronounce able words tend to be more natural or whole. Made from four ingredients, Kikkomans Soy Sauce is brewed naturally, using a traditional process that goes back hundreds of years. Other keepers include honey, canned beans, whole grain pastas or rice, raw nuts and olive oil. Once your pantry is in order, you can incorporate these healthy staples into meals using the freshest vegetables, poultry, fish and beef. By keeping your pantry stocked with the most whole some ingredients, you can be sure you are giving the very best to your family. For additional recipes and informa tion, visit www.kikkomanUSA.com.Natural,Quality Ingredients MaketheMeal Brining 101What exactly is brining? Much like a marinade, meat and poultry is soaked in flavorful liquid, such as an all-purpose seasoning like Kikkoman Soy Sauce. This adds a tremendous amount of flavor and also breaks down proteins, thus, tenderizing the meat or poultry. The only real rule to brining is that the meat must be kept cold throughout the entire pro cess.Usealargecontainer,cooler or brining bag that can fit into a refrigerator because the protein and brine solution has to be kept below 40 degrees at all times. Spaghetti and MeatballsServings: 8 1 pound spaghetti 1 1/4 pounds ground beef 2 eggs, beaten 1 cup Kikkoman Panko Bread Crumbs 1 tablespoon Kikkoman Soy Sauce 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated and divided 4 cloves garlic, minced and divided 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 small onion, finely diced 2 28-ounce cans crushed tomatoes 1 tablespoon dried oregano Cook spaghetti according to package directions, rinse and drain. Combine ground beef, eggs, panko, soy sauce, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and 2 cloves of garlic in large bowl; shape into 1 1/2-inch sized meatballs. Bake meatballs at 350F on ungreased cookie sheet for 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, heat deep skillet, add oil, 1 clove garlic and onions and saut for about 5 minutes until onions are soft. Add tomatoes and remaining garlic, cheese and oregano; simmer for at least 20 minutes.Greek Pasta SaladServings: 6 Sun-Dried Tomato Salad Dressing: 3/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, drained or rehydrate if dry 2/3 cup olive oil 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped 2 tablespoons capers 3 cloves garlic 3 tablespoons Kikkoman Rice Vinegar Salad: 1/4 cup Kikkoman Thai Style Chili Sauce 4 cups rotini pasta, cooked 1/2 cup cucumber, peeled and seeded 1 cup cherry tomatoes 1 cup green bell pepper strips 1 4-ounce package feta cheese, crumbled 1 3.8-ounce can black olives, sliced and drained 3/4 cup chopped green onions 1/2 tablespoon chopped dill weed Fordressing,whisktogethersun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, basil, capers, garlic and rice vinegar. Set aside. For salad, whisk together 1 cup salad dressing and chili sauce, set aside. In large bowl, combine pasta and remaining ingredients, tossing to combine. Serve with salad dressing. Classic Fried RiceServings: 6 6 strips bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces 1 egg, beaten 8 green onions and tops, sliced 4 cups cold, cooked rice 1 tablespoon garlic, minced 3 tablespoons Kikkoman Soy Sauce Cook bacon in large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Move bacon to side of pan; add egg and scramble. Move egg over and add green onions to the skillet; saut for a minute. Stir in rice, add garlic and soy sauce. Toss until mixture is well blended and heated through. www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 14, 2013 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Its bad enough the federal government spies on us. Must it insult our intelligence too? The governments response to Edward Snowdens leaks about the National Security Agencys secret monitoring of the Internet and collection of our telephone logs is a mass of contradictions. Officials have said the disclosures are (1) old news, (2) grossly inaccurate, and (3) a blow to national security. Its hard to see how any two of these can be true, much less all three. Cant they at least get their story straight? If they cant do better than that, why should we have confidence in anything else that they do? Snowden exposed the governments indiscriminate snooping because, among other things, it violates the Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable searches and he had no other recourse. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper says Snowden should have used established channels to raise his concerns, but there are no effective channels. Members of the congressional intelligence committees are prohibited from telling the public what they learn from their briefings. Two members of the Senate committee, Ron Wyden and Mark Udall, for years have warned without disclosing secrets that the Obama administration is interpreting the Patriot Act and related laws far more broadly than was ever intended by those who voted for those pieces of legislation. Their warnings have made no difference. A court challenge wasnt open to Snowden either. Glenn Greenwald, who published Snowdens leaks in the Guardian, notes that for years the ACLU has tried to challenge the surveillance programs in court on Fourth Amendment grounds, but the Obama administration has blocked the effort by arguing that the ACLU has no standing to bring the suit. Its a classic Catch-22. Since the surveillance is secret, no one can know if he has been spied on. But if no one knows, no one can go into court claiming to be a victim, and the government will argue that therefore the plaintiff has no standing to challenge the surveillance. Well played, Obama administration. The administration should not be allowed to get away with the specious claim that telling its secrets to a few privileged members of Congress is equivalent to informing the people. It is not. Its merely one branch of government telling some people in another branch. Calling those politicians our representatives is highly misleading. In what sense do they actually represent us? Equally specious is the assertion that the NSA cant monitor particular people without court authorization. The secret FISA court is a rubber stamp. When Obama ran for president in 2008, he said Americans shouldnt have to choose between privacy and security. Now he says that one of the things that were going to have to discuss and debate is how are we striking this balance between the need to keep the American people safe and our concerns about privacy? Because there are some tradeoffs involved. What do you take us for, Mr. President? Do you say whatever serves your momentary interest? Its outrageous for Obama to say he welcomes this debate when his regime is plotting to capture and prosecute the heroic whistleblower who made it possible. The debate would be bogus anyway. No one has a right to make a security/privacy tradeoff for you. Our rights should not be subject to vote, particularly when a ruling elite ultimately will make the decision out of public view! Americans have learned nothing from the last 40 years if they have not learned that the executive branch regardless of party will interpret any power as broadly as it wishes. Congressional oversight is worse than useless; its a myth, especially when one chamber is controlled by the presidents party and the other chambers majority embraces big government as long as it carries a national security label. Obama says, If people cant trust not only the executive branch but also dont trust Congress and dont trust federal judges to make sure that were abiding by the Constitution, due process and rule of law, then were going to have some problems here. Thats wrong. If the politicians only response to revelations that theyre violating our privacy is to ask for trust, then we already have problems.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). Hello, government analyst. Im so glad youre monitoring my phone calls and Facebook and Twitter accounts. I hope youre enjoying yourself. I know your bosses say that what you are doing is legal because a judge in a secret court signed off on it. But I havent heard anyone tell me why a secret court is legal. In America, arent our courts supposed to be open? Isnt that a part of freedom? Anyhow, Ill try to make things simple for you. My recent phone calls include some to my wifes workplace, some to my office and some to my two doctors. My wife has called her mother and at least two of our four children. Incoming calls are another matter. Since you have all the records there, can you tell me who some of the calls are coming from? Many times I get a call that says unknown on the Caller ID, and when I pick it up, theres no one there. Id like to know who is trying to reach me. I also get solicitation calls despite being on the do not call list. Can you trace some of those numbers for me so I can file complaints against them with the U.S. Attorneys office? As for my social media accounts, I know youre watching my Facebook contacts. Fact is, I have one friend who lives in another part of the world. I suppose that gets me on a list of suspects who is making foreign contacts, even though he is my cousin who I havent seen since the early 1960s. A lot of my other friends are also relatives. In the spirit of helping you, I want to let you know that I dont suspect any of them of terrorism. If you want to know what websites I visit (if you dont know already), let me assure you that most of my time online is spent reading other newspapers (the ones that are free and let you read their stories) and websites concerning baseball, particularly the Mets. I suppose being a Mets fan makes you want to flag my account as suspicious, but I assure you Ive been that way since 1962, and I havent committed any terror activities in that time (although the Mets can drive you insane easily enough). As for Twitter, yes I have an account, but I use it only to follow people and organizations. I have a total of zero followers myself. Most of the people I follow are sports writers, but I am also linked to people from The Weather Channel, CNN, and one foreign entity, Pope Francis at the Vatican. Finally, if you want to make sure I dont take part in any terrorist activities in the air, feel free to put me on a no-fly list. Its been years since Ive flown, and I have absolutely no desire to do so, but if putting me on that list makes you happy, go right ahead. I would send you a copy of this column, but youre probably monitoring my keystrokes as I type it, so I wont waste my time transmitting it to you. Heres hoping you and yours have a nice day.

Fathers Day is a time to show appreciation and honor to fathers and those special persons who have been fatherly figures, i.e., stepfather, brother, uncle, grandfather, or other. The first Fathers Day was officially observed on June 19, 1910, in Spokane, Washington. The special day was started by a woman, Sonora Dodd, who was inspired to honor her own father, William Smart, a widower who was left to raise six children alone, following his wifes death during childbirth. The idea of a national Fathers Day gained support in 1924 by President Calvin Coolidge, and again in 1966 when President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Fathers Day. For some, this holiday is dreaded, ignored, or treated like any other day because there is no father in the home. This is a growing problem in our society, But for many, it is a day to truly honor a person who has been a rock of stability in the home. It is truly heroic to be a father to a child. A father to a family. Being a father goes beyond a mans biological duties and functions. Being a father means to be this steadfast, strong individual, full of ideals and ready to stand by his principles. Why? Because he must be a living example to the people around him. He must be the epitome of a near-perfect existence. Someone who can live up to being that which he should be noted: the foundation of a home. As we celebrate Fathers Day this coming Sunday, June 16, we honor all fathers, grandfathers, husbands, brothers, sons, uncles, friends who have been blessed to be such living examples for us to emulate and to remember as sources of our strength. They are our inspiration and they are the foundations by which many of us, as individuals, draw our own characters. Remember to honor your father on this day at least with a call, if not more. And if your father is still around, thank him for all he has done, and be grateful that hes still with you. Fly your flag todayToday we celebrate Flag Day in honor of that decree more than two centuries ago. It was a Wisconsin school teacher in 1885 who first proposed a "Flag Birthday." Within a few years, celebrations were held by individual states. Flag Day was officially established with a proclamation by President Woodrow Wilson on May 30, 1916, but it was not until 1949, in the administration of President Harry S. Truman, that this became an official holiday. In the wake of Sept. 11, the flag has become popular once again, flying from homes and businesses across the nation. Newspapers such as this one published fullcolor versions soon after the terrorist attacks, and many of those newsprint flags still can be seen in windows thoughout the area. Over the years, a political and cultural chasm divided Americans. But after Sept. 11, we found ourselves with a common goal -to preserve our nation and the many freedoms it represents. The flag, with its 13 stripes and 50 stars, symbolizes that goal and the many men and women who have died to preserve those liberties. Wave the flag today, proudly, and recite the 31 words that say it all: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Veterans Club meetingWe had a special treat at the Veterans Club meeting this past June 6. Al Morrison, the resident manager of Ritz House, brought two of the clients, Richard and Wayne, to our meeting to answer questions and share their experiences Richard spoke about his history at Ritz House as a recipient of treatment for the past nine months. Originally from New York, he was a Marine for eight years and has been improving his life since being at Ritz House. He is now getting ready to start college level classes. Wayne has been a resident for two months and is a six-year Army veteran. He came from Tennessee and has made great strides in improving his life. He commented on getting teeth very soon that will make a world of difference to him. Along with Al, two case workers and a full time psychologist work with the patients and guide them along the paths they must take to improve their lives. In the safe and comfortable rooms provided by the volunteers like the Cherrywood Veterans Club that furnished and redecorated a room; the Volunteers of America organization and in conjunction with the Veterans Administration, these men and women are given a second chance. Most if not all of the clients of Ritz House have been living on the streets but are now in a facility that provides treatment and care; respect and an opportunity at self sufficiency.

Al Sickle 208-5664 OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY June 16, 2013 1:00 to 2:00 PM WHISPERING PINES COMMENTARY BY GLENN MOLLETTE Recent news about cell phone giant Verizon is a bit disconcerting. Every phone record of every Verizon customer is now an open book to our government. Can we not call mom without it being the governments business? Is there no such thing as personal anymore? Alarmingly the answer is no. No one wants a terrorist living next door. We do not want people roaming our country looking for lives and buildings to destroy. Our FBI, CIA and military intelligence must be commended and praised for their efforts to prevent heinous acts from happening in our country. However, our liberty is at risk when anyone from the government can show up at any time and search through our homes, invade our personal property, invade our banking account information, go through our mail and family picture albums, or go through all of our computers to see every web page weve ever browsed. The books we read at the library, our newspaper subscriptions and what we bought at the grocery store is nobody elses business. I hear the argument If you arent hiding anything then what do you care? I care because, as a United States citizen, it is an invasion of our liberty. One invasion leads to another. The loss of freedom is slowly eroding in our country. The government is supposedly protecting you. Then one day we wake up in fear of making a move without government permission. Any invasion of our personal lives or privacy should go through proper channels and the legal process of being granted an investigative search warrant. In this scenario papers would have to be filled out explaining why such a search is necessary. Authorities who do such random searches must be held accountable for any damage done to the citizens home, family pictures, files, computers, clothes or any item that has been touched or mishandled in anyway. Authorities who search without just cause should be responsible for dry cleaning bills, carpet cleaning, painting and the purchase of new electronics if any of the electronics are damaged. If the suspicions end up true and the raided house ends us revealing someone who is plotting to hurt others then that changes the scenario. Those who search should never be allowed to destroy someones home and leave it in a state of disaster. When someone is suspected as being a threat to hurting anyone or suspected of being a terroristic threat to a community or our nation then of course everything must be done to determine what is going on and every precaution taken to save lives. The truth of the matter is that if the FBI invades a persons home and does a search and they find 50 guns it doesnt mean anything. Many people collect guns. If the person has told people about his plans to shoot people at the movie theatre or if he has written Privacy no longer an option threatening stuff on Facebook then the authorities have every right to take his guns, investigate and arrest him if they find documented facts. The Patriot Act was established after the 911 attacks. We will never forget the heinous crimes committed against our country. The question is this, Has the patriot act made us safer as a nation? The Patriot Act has given the government more freedom to invade any persons privacy in Any Place, USA, but has it made you safer? Do you feel safer because of the Patriot Act? Since the Patriot Act there have been countless episodes of violence that the new law has not prevented throughout the states. Military base shootings, office shootings, campus shootings, movie theatre shootings and more. For every terroristic act that has been stopped we celebrate as a country and thank those involved in preventing it. The Patriot Act needs to be edited. Our citizens should only have to fear criminals and terrorists, not government officials with a license to violate our civil liberties. There should be a compromise and a system of checks and balances that protect the freedom of Americans as well as keeping us safe.

While it seems there is a day for everything, this day is special. On this day we want to thank those individuals who make the very personal decision to donate blood. It is an unselfish act. And it happens worldwide. In this day of global economies, global news, global travel and global health care it is appropriate to recognize that we all have the same basic needs and we all depend on one another. Everywhere in the world there is a young mother who will need a red cell transfusion because of complications during childbirth. There is a child undergoing a bone marrow transplant who will need platelet transfusions to help him survive the strenuous treatment to overcome cancer. There is a farm accident victim who requires plasma transfusions to survive one of the most difficult events of his life. These lifesaving things happen every day and they happen everywhere. Returning to what I see every day locally I want to thank all the blood donors who help LifeSouth fulfill our mission. Here and throughout Florida, Georgia, and Alabama our blood donors help save lives because blood is there when it is needed. Although donating blood is an international phenomena, happening thousands of times a day, it is still a personal, individual decision made one at a time. It shows that people care. It shows them at their best. Again, thank you. Nancy Eckert LifeSouth Community Blood CentersSchool budgetsHow do we budget our tax dollars used for the education of our children? At the present time we start our budget issues at the very top level of those working to prepare our students for their future. I would like to propose that we reverse our thoughts and ideas to give our children a well rounded education to help them understand how important music, the arts, team sports and building relationships are to their future. Basic education is also very important to their future but life is more than taking tests to justify administrators positions. Lets give our schools the resources to provide education needed and work the school budgets from the teachers first and then to the administrators. What we are doing in education now is not working for the benefit of anyone except those at the top. Give the front line teachers the resources necessary to promote a more realistic future for our times. The importance of an educated start in life may be the difference between success and failure. It is necessary to adjust our school budgets and still remain within or near what the state has proposed for operating our regular and charter schools. We must look and evaluate what jobs are necessary for educating our students and what positions are just making up work to justify their existence. Some administrators just move from one title to another title without entering a class room or grading a paper. Some of the salaries at the top must be adjusted to keep real teachers working because they are there each and every day doing a job that shows results with the students and their communities. We should be outraged at the way this state treats our educators. Is it any wonder that Floridas schools rank near the bottom of all 50 states when it comes to education? Jerry Segovis OcalaNot a democracyWhile President Obamas IRS has been targeting and harrassing us Tea Partiers, he has in speeches called us a threat to democracy. He is absolutely correct. The U.S. was founded as a republic. Since about 1901, progressives from both parties have been morphing it into a democracy. We seek to restore the constitutional republic our founders gave us. The terms republic and democracy are not synonymous and not interchangeable. We should all know the difference, and work to restore our republic.

We need everyone to please put some nonperishable food items and/or cleaning supplies in a bag and set it by your mail box. Volunteers will come around the neighborhood between 10 and 11 in the morning to pick up your donations. For those of you who are not residents of Cherrywood, there will be a volunteer representative at our clubhouse from 9:30 until 11 on both Friday and Saturday mornings. You are urged to drop off your donations at that time. As our guest speakers told the Veterans Club on June 6, all food and cleaning supplies are greatly appreciated. The veterans at Ritz House are provided one meal per day by the Veterans Administration; the other meals are dependent on a pantry stocked by concerned citizens. Cleaning supplies are needed because the clients in Ritz House are responsible for maintaining their rooms and common areas. Most have little or no funds and so keeping everything clean while putting food in their stomachs can be a hardship. The Veterans Club and this community have been long time supporters of the Ritz Veterans Village and their efforts to help get homeless veterans back into society. Anything you can give will help so be as generous as you can with your gifts. Read more about the Ritz House in the Veterans meeting portion of this weeks Citizen.Pool party at CherrywoodOn June 22, the residents of Cherrywood will gather behind the clubhouse at our beautiful pool and patio area for a cool pizza party. This gathering of friends and neighbors promises to be one of the bright spots of the June calendar. Enjoy pizza from Little Joeys restaurant along with salad, and dance to the music of Rich Becotte as we enjoy the gentle breezes and warm atmosphere around the pool. Bring your own drinks or enjoy the free iced tea and lemonade provided but if you do bring your own, remember no glass. Plastic containers or metal cans are fine. Put on your swimsuit, shorts or whatever and join in the fun from 7 until 10 p.m. The music will be romantic; the mood relaxed and the fun will shine through. Tickets are just $4 per person so see Geri and make sure you are a part of this mid-summer nights dream. But remember you need a ticket so be sure to pick up your ticket for this fun evening, tickets are limited to 80 people. Community food drive to benefit Ritz House on June 20 Cherrywood John Everlove Trivia nightOn June 19 at 7 p.m., the trivia teams will again gather in the clubhouse to try answering questions put on the big screen. This month yours truly will be the quiz master and Ive put together questions about holidays and the Indy 500. There will be some other categories as well to tease your brain and bring a smile or two. Playing trivia is easy. Teams of three or four people sit in groups with an answer sheet. After reading the questions, they put their heads together and jot down the best response. When the questions are done, the answer sheets are graded and winners declared. Small cash prizes and bragging rights go to the top teams. It only costs $1 per person to play and all the proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Project. The trivia group has donated more than $300 thus far. Im hoping for a record turnout for this months game. Come and join your friends and neighbors for a great time and at the same time, support a worthy cause. Bring your own liquid refreshments and other snacks to enjoy while you test your knowledge of all things trivial. See you there.Blood neededOn Tuesday, June 25 from 9 a.m. until noon, the Big Red Bus will be at the Cherrywood Clubhouse taking donations of live giving blood. You can be assured of prompt, courteous and professional services from the staff as you relax in the comfortable air conditioned facility. For anyone who has received a transfusion or has had a loved one receive a transfusion, you know the value of whole blood. Unfortunately, there is a shortage of all blood types in the summer months especially so please, be a hero and plan to donate. You can set up an appointment by contacting Judy Durst at 352-873-7849 or just stop by on that Tuesday. Rest assured you wont be turned away. Please note that you do not need to be a Cherrywood resident to give blood on that day. Thank you for your support.

Residents loved the famous River Walk, the Alamo, the LBJ Ranch, and much more. We are thinking of doing more multi-day trips next year. Do you have any ideas we can check out? They can be as short as 23 days, or longer! Gamblers take note! With the Seminole Casinos having reversed their policy regarding free play, sort of, we will be rescheduling a couple of Hard Rock trips for the last half of the year. Look for announcements regarding these trips which will replace the ones we canceled. The recent changes are that the casinos will provide, for bus groups only, a play-pass booklet with various coupons and other offers including some free play. In addition, they are holding a drawing for all people who arrive by bus each day. The winner will receive $1,000. So if 10 buses arrive on any given day one person from those ten buses will win the $1,000. Meanwhile we filled in with another two-day Midweek Getaway on Nov. 6 and 7. The trip includes the Seminole Casino, Immokalee. We will overnight at Holiday Inn, there will be a cheese and wine reception, a dinner and the show will be Cats at the Broadway Palm. The second day there will be a hot breakfast buffet before leaving for gaming at the Hard Rock Casino, Tampa. We will be receiving the play-pass booklets mentioned above on the bus. Call Connie Smith for details and a place on the bus. A reminder about Trip 10 on Oct, 9, Soap, Soda, Saints and Sinners. This trip will take you to the hunting lodge of Ivory soap maker James Gamble, you will see CocaCola memorabilia, how the iconic coke bottle was created and how this wealthy family traveled. We will then tour one of the most beautiful churches in central Florida, the Basilica of St Paul, and finish up at a candy factory to see how hand made candies are produced. Does the word samples mean anything to you? There is an included lunch at one of the new, most popular restaurants in Daytona. Call Duke and Joanne Misener. Trip 11 on Oct. 17 has four stops so we call this trip Mission Inn, Yalaha Bakery, Lake Ridge Winery and Russell Stover. The title says it all and we will have a lunch buffet at the beautiful Mission Inn. Contact Bob and Norma Richards to get your seat on the bus. On Oct. 20 we go to The Show Palace Dinner Theatre to see Hello Dolly. Listen to the hurdy-gurdy tunes of the turn of the last century in old New York including, of course, the rousing Hello Dolly. Great entertainment, great buffet and an easy bus ride with the bus driver tip included. Call Fred and Joanne Veale. Friends of the LibraryJust in time for vacation travel summer fine forgiveness on audio books is back at the Library of Oak Run! For CD and cassette audio books checked out beginning June 1 fines will be forgiven until September 29 when overdue fees will be reinstated.Irish American Club The Irish Americans Spring Fling was a great success. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food and music. Our four dance contests were great fun and our winners were: Paul and Emily Pike for the Texas 2-step, Andy and Dee Butler for the cha cha, Barbara and Richard Lambert for the jitterbug, Ed and Flo Feltman and Hal and Anne Lochner for the waltz. Along with everyones accolades for their proficiency, all of our winners received a prize. Our next party will be held in September so be on the lookout for the dates and theme in future articles and flyers.Italian American ClubAndy Alloro and John Casabianca plus over 100 club members and friends had a great time on the Victory Casino Cruise Ship on May 20. They arrived in two buses to a delicious buffet, cocktails while gambling, and free entertainment. Some of the winners did well at the slots, roulette, craps, blackjack and poker. It was truly a fun day in the sun.OMI The Fun ClubTropical Storm Andrea, though she tried mightily, could not dampen the spirits or the determination of the hearty souls of The Fun Club. Thanks to the kindness of the Royal Oaks Restaurant staff, the picnic moved from the outdoor patio to the indoor restaurant. The delicious picnic fare was enjoyed in air conditioned luxury free of wind, rain and ants. The nine-hole golf game was played tabletop with a complicated set of dice and Royal Oaks Golf Club score cards. Eight teams competed on a nine-hole course, and it was a lot noisier than might have been played on the outdoor course. First place went to Glen Breeding, Rita Breeding, Kate Lott and Nancy Reichenbacher. Second place team consisted of Ed Feltman, Damian Romano, Bill Pascoe and Carol Pascoe. There were lots of door prizes for the non-golfers as well. As they say, when you get lemons, make lemonade. President, Ron Kowalewski did spot one die-hard golfer on the tenth fairway though. During the driving rain, in the river of water flowing down the fairway, John Wargo was seen doing the backstroke in his wet suit with a golf club, and was duly acknowledged at the party. Friday, June 14, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, June 14, 2013 www.smcitizen.com You can imagine my feelings when I recently found out that good old Uncle Sam was checking up on my phone calls, e-mail messages and the rest of the social networking. Finally, somebody is really watching out for me. It is more than that. Somebody is so interested in my affairs they are getting involved in my telephone conversations. I must admit that at first I was a little suspicious about all of this. For example. What does Uncle Sam know about me and my phone calls that I do not know? I get an awful lot of telephone calls during the course of a week. Some are friends, some are family, some are trying to sell me the Brooklyn Bridge. Even if I lived in New York City, I would not want to own the Brooklyn Bridge. Can you imagine how much it cost to keep that thing up and running? As I said, at first I was a little suspicious about somebody listening into my phone calls. Then I remembered that back in the day, everybody did that. We had what was called the party line telephone system. That meant that everybody was connected to everybody else. My grandmother for example, lived in a valley up in the mountains. She was on the party line, of course, and everybody had a special ring. Grandmas ring was two long and one short rings. Whenever the telephone rang, dear old grandmother knew who was being called and, being a nosy person, she usually listened into the conversations. I am not picking on my grandmother, for everybody did it. Everybody knew everybody was doing it. It was gossipers heaven. I think there is something to be said for everybody knowing everybodys business. That way everybody is up and up on the things they are talking about. Of course, there is a dark side to it. I am semi-ashamed to reveal that I was part of that dark side. Whenever anybody wanted to send out a rumor there was always the party line telephone system. My cousin and I got together and cooked up some juicy rumor about old Henry up the valley. Henry had never been married and was probably in his 70s at the time. We started the rumor that Henry had a girlfriend. It did not take long for everybody in the valley to know that Henry, who had been a bachelor for over 70 years, now had a special love interest. The big question coming through the party line was, who is this lucky woman? Before long, this got a little out of control. Everybody believed that Henry had a special love interest and it got to the point that Henry himself believed he had a love interest. I remember going with my grandmother to the grocery store and we happened to run into good old Henry. My grandmother, who was the queen of the gossipers, took this opportunity to speak to Henry. Oh Henry, she said as we approached him. I heard the news that you have a girlfriend. Im so happy for you. Youll have to bring her over to my house for coffee and cake some time. Thank you, Mary, Henry said with the biggest smile I have ever seen him wear. Ive never been happier. At this point, I did not know what to do. Everybody was so happy with this rumor, especially old Henry, that the truth would have destroyed the entire valley. I did think of starting a rumor that Henry and his new girlfriend had a fight and broke up. However, on second thought, Henry was so happy these days, I just hated to spoil his life. I never knew how that turned out. The last time I saw Henry he was smiling and thanking people for congratulating him on having a girlfriend. Some people need to feel happy, I suppose. I guess it is my time to be fooled by my uncle, and I deserve it. I really do not mind if good old Uncle Sam is going to listen in on my social networking party line, but I do have a few rules that I would like to establish. Rule number one. Uncle Sam do not repeat anything you hear said on my party line. Lets keep some of that Can you hear me now, Uncle Sam? Out to Pastor Rev.

Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, June 20, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. Please give us a call at 352-362-0985 if you would like more information about our meetings or have any other questions for us. Dont forget to visit the SPCA table at the Farmers Market at Circle Square Commons on 80th Street in On Top of the World Communities on the first Thursday of every month. Open to the public, we sell used books at only .25 cents to a dollar and every penny goes to help the animals of Marion County. This is also a good way to stop by and ask questions about our organization. The SPCA needs your help. We are in desperate need of dog and cat food for the Pets on Wheels program, an adjunct program to Meals on Wheels. As many of you know, we pack dog and cat food and treats for 60 cats and 70 dogs (35 small and 35 large) every other week. We have a bin under the bulletin board in Winn Dixie in Friendship Center for the drop off of bags of cat and dog kibble and healthy treats. Or you can call us at 352-362-0985 to arrange an alternate drop off or pick up site. Sometimes when people go back North for the summer we find ourselves short on food donations. Now we must appeal to the year-round members of our community to help out when the donation bin runs dry. So if you have any unopened bags of food that you can spare, or can pick one up while grocery shopping, we are grateful if you can share them with the neediest pets in our county. Adoption NewsThe SPCA is fostering two wonderful dogs that are now ready for their forever homes. Daisy is a 5-year-old hound mix who looks like a dachshund/beagle cross. She has the sweetest disposition and face, with lovely warm brown eyes that look like theyre surrounded by black eyeliner. Shes fastidious in her housetraining habits and has not even had one accident while in foster care. Shes gentle and quiet (did I say she was part beagle? maybe not) and loves to cuddle. At 25 pounds, shes a great size for most people. She would fare best in a home where her people are home more often than not she forms a close bond with the people she loves. But shes not just a homebody. She loves to go for walks and is very good on a leash. Shes just learning to take treats and play with toys it looks like she never had them before. Daisy eats very well though, and would be most grateful if you snuck her a piece of cheese under the table. Daisy has been socialized to other dogs and cats while in foster care, so if theyre not too rowdy she should be fine with them. Her ideal person would be on the gentle yet playful side. Her foster family and other SPCA members adore her and would snatch her up if they didnt already have enough animals of their own. So if youre looking for a gentle and sweet companion that will grow to love you in a heartbeat, please call the SPCA at 352-362-0985 to meet this lovely soul. Our other foster dog is Buddy the terrier mix. Hes about 1 or 2 years old and at 15 pounds is a bit smaller than Daisy. He was found wandering around Palm Cay a while ago without tags or microchip. He has a single coat brown brindle body with a chocolate brown face and legs and a fluffy tail. Like most terriers, hes very playful, smart and funny. His favorite thing is to play with throw toys. Hell run to retrieve one and bring it back to you, but he wont want to give it back to you too easily its all part of the game. So you can spend your first couple of weeks together working on the give command. For a small dog, Buddy isnt yappy. He gets along with both cats and dogs although it took a couple of weeks in foster care to warm up to the cat, but now theyre friends. Buddy also loves his walks and doesnt pull on the leash. Hes housetrained, in excellent health, current on all shots and will be neutered prior to adoption. If a lively terrier type cant tire you out, then Buddys the boy for you. Please call the SPCA number above. We are also trying to help Pet Network place a senior small poodle. His name is also Buddy, but hes 11 years old and only 9 pounds. His family lost their business and home and could no longer give Buddy the proper care he needs. Pet Network would like to find either a new home or a foster home right away because hes always lived in a lov-Friday, June 14, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, June 14, 2013 www.smcitizen.com stuff between us. OK? Some of what youre going to hear may not be altogether, what should I say, truthful. Especially, if you only hear a portion of the conversation. Rule number two. If while listening in on the conversation of mine and the other party happens to be some salesman trying to sell me something, please feel free to butt into the conversation. After all, the salesman is trying to take a dollar out of my pocket and you know how much you want that dollar! Rule number three. If the conversation you overhear is concerning you, keep in mind were talking about the other Uncle Sam. It is hard to keep anything secret these days. In fact, there is not much to keep secret anymore. The only secret Im really interested in is what God has. His promise to me is, Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV).

BY CAROL JONES Special to the CitizenHeather Ogilvie, supervisor of Freedom Public Library, has left for a position with a library system in another county. Her positive influence during the past seven years will be sorely missed by friends, staff, and The Friends supporting organization. The interactive programs Heather implemented for children and adults make our library an ongoing fun place to visit. All who stop in find a welcome friendly atmosphere where they can browse the book shelves, use the computers, or ask questions. Patrons are invited to purchase from the Friends Lobby Book Store, and of course come back for the big semi-annual book sales. All are important facets of our library, and Heathers participation has ensured their continuing success. Best wishes, Heather, in your new venture.Friday, June 14, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, June 14, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds Freedom Public Librarys sendoff to supervisor PHOTOS BY CAROL JONESHeather Ogilvie with Wally Barrett.

BY CAROL JONES Special to the CitizenHeather Ogilvie, supervisor of Freedom Public Library, has left for a position with a library system in another county. Her positive influence during the past seven years will be sorely missed by friends, staff, and The Friends supporting organization. The interactive programs Heather implemented for children and adults make our library an ongoing fun place to visit. All who stop in find a welcome friendly atmosphere where they can browse the book shelves, use the computers, or ask questions. Patrons are invited to purchase from the Friends Lobby Book Store, and of course come back for the big semi-annual book sales. All are important facets of our library, and Heathers participation has ensured their continuing success. Best wishes, Heather, in your new venture.Friday, June 14, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, June 14, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds Freedom Public Librarys sendoff to supervisor PHOTOS BY CAROL JONESHeather Ogilvie with Wally Barrett.

Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, June 20, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. Please give us a call at 352-362-0985 if you would like more information about our meetings or have any other questions for us. Dont forget to visit the SPCA table at the Farmers Market at Circle Square Commons on 80th Street in On Top of the World Communities on the first Thursday of every month. Open to the public, we sell used books at only .25 cents to a dollar and every penny goes to help the animals of Marion County. This is also a good way to stop by and ask questions about our organization. The SPCA needs your help. We are in desperate need of dog and cat food for the Pets on Wheels program, an adjunct program to Meals on Wheels. As many of you know, we pack dog and cat food and treats for 60 cats and 70 dogs (35 small and 35 large) every other week. We have a bin under the bulletin board in Winn Dixie in Friendship Center for the drop off of bags of cat and dog kibble and healthy treats. Or you can call us at 352-362-0985 to arrange an alternate drop off or pick up site. Sometimes when people go back North for the summer we find ourselves short on food donations. Now we must appeal to the year-round members of our community to help out when the donation bin runs dry. So if you have any unopened bags of food that you can spare, or can pick one up while grocery shopping, we are grateful if you can share them with the neediest pets in our county. Adoption NewsThe SPCA is fostering two wonderful dogs that are now ready for their forever homes. Daisy is a 5-year-old hound mix who looks like a dachshund/beagle cross. She has the sweetest disposition and face, with lovely warm brown eyes that look like theyre surrounded by black eyeliner. Shes fastidious in her housetraining habits and has not even had one accident while in foster care. Shes gentle and quiet (did I say she was part beagle? maybe not) and loves to cuddle. At 25 pounds, shes a great size for most people. She would fare best in a home where her people are home more often than not she forms a close bond with the people she loves. But shes not just a homebody. She loves to go for walks and is very good on a leash. Shes just learning to take treats and play with toys it looks like she never had them before. Daisy eats very well though, and would be most grateful if you snuck her a piece of cheese under the table. Daisy has been socialized to other dogs and cats while in foster care, so if theyre not too rowdy she should be fine with them. Her ideal person would be on the gentle yet playful side. Her foster family and other SPCA members adore her and would snatch her up if they didnt already have enough animals of their own. So if youre looking for a gentle and sweet companion that will grow to love you in a heartbeat, please call the SPCA at 352-362-0985 to meet this lovely soul. Our other foster dog is Buddy the terrier mix. Hes about 1 or 2 years old and at 15 pounds is a bit smaller than Daisy. He was found wandering around Palm Cay a while ago without tags or microchip. He has a single coat brown brindle body with a chocolate brown face and legs and a fluffy tail. Like most terriers, hes very playful, smart and funny. His favorite thing is to play with throw toys. Hell run to retrieve one and bring it back to you, but he wont want to give it back to you too easily its all part of the game. So you can spend your first couple of weeks together working on the give command. For a small dog, Buddy isnt yappy. He gets along with both cats and dogs although it took a couple of weeks in foster care to warm up to the cat, but now theyre friends. Buddy also loves his walks and doesnt pull on the leash. Hes housetrained, in excellent health, current on all shots and will be neutered prior to adoption. If a lively terrier type cant tire you out, then Buddys the boy for you. Please call the SPCA number above. We are also trying to help Pet Network place a senior small poodle. His name is also Buddy, but hes 11 years old and only 9 pounds. His family lost their business and home and could no longer give Buddy the proper care he needs. Pet Network would like to find either a new home or a foster home right away because hes always lived in a lov-Friday, June 14, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, June 14, 2013 www.smcitizen.com stuff between us. OK? Some of what youre going to hear may not be altogether, what should I say, truthful. Especially, if you only hear a portion of the conversation. Rule number two. If while listening in on the conversation of mine and the other party happens to be some salesman trying to sell me something, please feel free to butt into the conversation. After all, the salesman is trying to take a dollar out of my pocket and you know how much you want that dollar! Rule number three. If the conversation you overhear is concerning you, keep in mind were talking about the other Uncle Sam. It is hard to keep anything secret these days. In fact, there is not much to keep secret anymore. The only secret Im really interested in is what God has. His promise to me is, Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV). God hears me all the time and knows everything about me.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Residents loved the famous River Walk, the Alamo, the LBJ Ranch, and much more. We are thinking of doing more multi-day trips next year. Do you have any ideas we can check out? They can be as short as 23 days, or longer! Gamblers take note! With the Seminole Casinos having reversed their policy regarding free play, sort of, we will be rescheduling a couple of Hard Rock trips for the last half of the year. Look for announcements regarding these trips which will replace the ones we canceled. The recent changes are that the casinos will provide, for bus groups only, a play-pass booklet with various coupons and other offers including some free play. In addition, they are holding a drawing for all people who arrive by bus each day. The winner will receive $1,000. So if 10 buses arrive on any given day one person from those ten buses will win the $1,000. Meanwhile we filled in with another two-day Midweek Getaway on Nov. 6 and 7. The trip includes the Seminole Casino, Immokalee. We will overnight at Holiday Inn, there will be a cheese and wine reception, a dinner and the show will be Cats at the Broadway Palm. The second day there will be a hot breakfast buffet before leaving for gaming at the Hard Rock Casino, Tampa. We will be receiving the play-pass booklets mentioned above on the bus. Call Connie Smith for details and a place on the bus. A reminder about Trip 10 on Oct, 9, Soap, Soda, Saints and Sinners. This trip will take you to the hunting lodge of Ivory soap maker James Gamble, you will see CocaCola memorabilia, how the iconic coke bottle was created and how this wealthy family traveled. We will then tour one of the most beautiful churches in central Florida, the Basilica of St Paul, and finish up at a candy factory to see how hand made candies are produced. Does the word samples mean anything to you? There is an included lunch at one of the new, most popular restaurants in Daytona. Call Duke and Joanne Misener. Trip 11 on Oct. 17 has four stops so we call this trip Mission Inn, Yalaha Bakery, Lake Ridge Winery and Russell Stover. The title says it all and we will have a lunch buffet at the beautiful Mission Inn. Contact Bob and Norma Richards to get your seat on the bus. On Oct. 20 we go to The Show Palace Dinner Theatre to see Hello Dolly. Listen to the hurdy-gurdy tunes of the turn of the last century in old New York including, of course, the rousing Hello Dolly. Great entertainment, great buffet and an easy bus ride with the bus driver tip included. Call Fred and Joanne Veale. Friends of the LibraryJust in time for vacation travel summer fine forgiveness on audio books is back at the Library of Oak Run! For CD and cassette audio books checked out beginning June 1 fines will be forgiven until September 29 when overdue fees will be reinstated.Irish American Club The Irish Americans Spring Fling was a great success. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food and music. Our four dance contests were great fun and our winners were: Paul and Emily Pike for the Texas 2-step, Andy and Dee Butler for the cha cha, Barbara and Richard Lambert for the jitterbug, Ed and Flo Feltman and Hal and Anne Lochner for the waltz. Along with everyones accolades for their proficiency, all of our winners received a prize. Our next party will be held in September so be on the lookout for the dates and theme in future articles and flyers.Italian American ClubAndy Alloro and John Casabianca plus over 100 club members and friends had a great time on the Victory Casino Cruise Ship on May 20. They arrived in two buses to a delicious buffet, cocktails while gambling, and free entertainment. Some of the winners did well at the slots, roulette, craps, blackjack and poker. It was truly a fun day in the sun.OMI The Fun ClubTropical Storm Andrea, though she tried mightily, could not dampen the spirits or the determination of the hearty souls of The Fun Club. Thanks to the kindness of the Royal Oaks Restaurant staff, the picnic moved from the outdoor patio to the indoor restaurant. The delicious picnic fare was enjoyed in air conditioned luxury free of wind, rain and ants. The nine-hole golf game was played tabletop with a complicated set of dice and Royal Oaks Golf Club score cards. Eight teams competed on a nine-hole course, and it was a lot noisier than might have been played on the outdoor course. First place went to Glen Breeding, Rita Breeding, Kate Lott and Nancy Reichenbacher. Second place team consisted of Ed Feltman, Damian Romano, Bill Pascoe and Carol Pascoe. There were lots of door prizes for the non-golfers as well. As they say, when you get lemons, make lemonade. President, Ron Kowalewski did spot one die-hard golfer on the tenth fairway though. During the driving rain, in the river of water flowing down the fairway, John Wargo was seen doing the backstroke in his wet suit with a golf club, and was duly acknowledged at the party. Friday, June 14, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, June 14, 2013 www.smcitizen.com You can imagine my feelings when I recently found out that good old Uncle Sam was checking up on my phone calls, e-mail messages and the rest of the social networking. Finally, somebody is really watching out for me. It is more than that. Somebody is so interested in my affairs they are getting involved in my telephone conversations. I must admit that at first I was a little suspicious about all of this. For example. What does Uncle Sam know about me and my phone calls that I do not know? I get an awful lot of telephone calls during the course of a week. Some are friends, some are family, some are trying to sell me the Brooklyn Bridge. Even if I lived in New York City, I would not want to own the Brooklyn Bridge. Can you imagine how much it cost to keep that thing up and running? As I said, at first I was a little suspicious about somebody listening into my phone calls. Then I remembered that back in the day, everybody did that. We had what was called the party line telephone system. That meant that everybody was connected to everybody else. My grandmother for example, lived in a valley up in the mountains. She was on the party line, of course, and everybody had a special ring. Grandmas ring was two long and one short rings. Whenever the telephone rang, dear old grandmother knew who was being called and, being a nosy person, she usually listened into the conversations. I am not picking on my grandmother, for everybody did it. Everybody knew everybody was doing it. It was gossipers heaven. I think there is something to be said for everybody knowing everybodys business. That way everybody is up and up on the things they are talking about. Of course, there is a dark side to it. I am semi-ashamed to reveal that I was part of that dark side. Whenever anybody wanted to send out a rumor there was always the party line telephone system. My cousin and I got together and cooked up some juicy rumor about old Henry up the valley. Henry had never been married and was probably in his 70s at the time. We started the rumor that Henry had a girlfriend. It did not take long for everybody in the valley to know that Henry, who had been a bachelor for over 70 years, now had a special love interest. The big question coming through the party line was, who is this lucky woman? Before long, this got a little out of control. Everybody believed that Henry had a special love interest and it got to the point that Henry himself believed he had a love interest. I remember going with my grandmother to the grocery store and we happened to run into good old Henry. My grandmother, who was the queen of the gossipers, took this opportunity to speak to Henry. Oh Henry, she said as we approached him. I heard the news that you have a girlfriend. Im so happy for you. Youll have to bring her over to my house for coffee and cake some time. Thank you, Mary, Henry said with the biggest smile I have ever seen him wear. Ive never been happier. At this point, I did not know what to do. Everybody was so happy with this rumor, especially old Henry, that the truth would have destroyed the entire valley. I did think of starting a rumor that Henry and his new girlfriend had a fight and broke up. However, on second thought, Henry was so happy these days, I just hated to spoil his life. I never knew how that turned out. The last time I saw Henry he was smiling and thanking people for congratulating him on having a girlfriend. Some people need to feel happy, I suppose. I guess it is my time to be fooled by my uncle, and I deserve it. I really do not mind if good old Uncle Sam is going to listen in on my social networking party line, but I do have a few rules that I would like to establish. Rule number one. Uncle Sam do not repeat anything you hear said on my party line. Lets keep some of that Can you hear me now, Uncle Sam? Out to Pastor Rev.

While it seems there is a day for everything, this day is special. On this day we want to thank those individuals who make the very personal decision to donate blood. It is an unselfish act. And it happens worldwide. In this day of global economies, global news, global travel and global health care it is appropriate to recognize that we all have the same basic needs and we all depend on one another. Everywhere in the world there is a young mother who will need a red cell transfusion because of complications during childbirth. There is a child undergoing a bone marrow transplant who will need platelet transfusions to help him survive the strenuous treatment to overcome cancer. There is a farm accident victim who requires plasma transfusions to survive one of the most difficult events of his life. These lifesaving things happen every day and they happen everywhere. Returning to what I see every day locally I want to thank all the blood donors who help LifeSouth fulfill our mission. Here and throughout Florida, Georgia, and Alabama our blood donors help save lives because blood is there when it is needed. Although donating blood is an international phenomena, happening thousands of times a day, it is still a personal, individual decision made one at a time. It shows that people care. It shows them at their best. Again, thank you. Nancy Eckert LifeSouth Community Blood CentersSchool budgetsHow do we budget our tax dollars used for the education of our children? At the present time we start our budget issues at the very top level of those working to prepare our students for their future. I would like to propose that we reverse our thoughts and ideas to give our children a well rounded education to help them understand how important music, the arts, team sports and building relationships are to their future. Basic education is also very important to their future but life is more than taking tests to justify administrators positions. Lets give our schools the resources to provide education needed and work the school budgets from the teachers first and then to the administrators. What we are doing in education now is not working for the benefit of anyone except those at the top. Give the front line teachers the resources necessary to promote a more realistic future for our times. The importance of an educated start in life may be the difference between success and failure. It is necessary to adjust our school budgets and still remain within or near what the state has proposed for operating our regular and charter schools. We must look and evaluate what jobs are necessary for educating our students and what positions are just making up work to justify their existence. Some administrators just move from one title to another title without entering a class room or grading a paper. Some of the salaries at the top must be adjusted to keep real teachers working because they are there each and every day doing a job that shows results with the students and their communities. We should be outraged at the way this state treats our educators. Is it any wonder that Floridas schools rank near the bottom of all 50 states when it comes to education? Jerry Segovis OcalaNot a democracyWhile President Obamas IRS has been targeting and harrassing us Tea Partiers, he has in speeches called us a threat to democracy. He is absolutely correct. The U.S. was founded as a republic. Since about 1901, progressives from both parties have been morphing it into a democracy. We seek to restore the constitutional republic our founders gave us. The terms republic and democracy are not synonymous and not interchangeable. We should all know the difference, and work to restore our republic.

We need everyone to please put some nonperishable food items and/or cleaning supplies in a bag and set it by your mail box. Volunteers will come around the neighborhood between 10 and 11 in the morning to pick up your donations. For those of you who are not residents of Cherrywood, there will be a volunteer representative at our clubhouse from 9:30 until 11 on both Friday and Saturday mornings. You are urged to drop off your donations at that time. As our guest speakers told the Veterans Club on June 6, all food and cleaning supplies are greatly appreciated. The veterans at Ritz House are provided one meal per day by the Veterans Administration; the other meals are dependent on a pantry stocked by concerned citizens. Cleaning supplies are needed because the clients in Ritz House are responsible for maintaining their rooms and common areas. Most have little or no funds and so keeping everything clean while putting food in their stomachs can be a hardship. The Veterans Club and this community have been long time supporters of the Ritz Veterans Village and their efforts to help get homeless veterans back into society. Anything you can give will help so be as generous as you can with your gifts. Read more about the Ritz House in the Veterans meeting portion of this weeks Citizen.Pool party at CherrywoodOn June 22, the residents of Cherrywood will gather behind the clubhouse at our beautiful pool and patio area for a cool pizza party. This gathering of friends and neighbors promises to be one of the bright spots of the June calendar. Enjoy pizza from Little Joeys restaurant along with salad, and dance to the music of Rich Becotte as we enjoy the gentle breezes and warm atmosphere around the pool. Bring your own drinks or enjoy the free iced tea and lemonade provided but if you do bring your own, remember no glass. Plastic containers or metal cans are fine. Put on your swimsuit, shorts or whatever and join in the fun from 7 until 10 p.m. The music will be romantic; the mood relaxed and the fun will shine through. Tickets are just $4 per person so see Geri and make sure you are a part of this mid-summer nights dream. But remember you need a ticket so be sure to pick up your ticket for this fun evening, tickets are limited to 80 people. Community food drive to benefit Ritz House on June 20 Cherrywood John Everlove Trivia nightOn June 19 at 7 p.m., the trivia teams will again gather in the clubhouse to try answering questions put on the big screen. This month yours truly will be the quiz master and Ive put together questions about holidays and the Indy 500. There will be some other categories as well to tease your brain and bring a smile or two. Playing trivia is easy. Teams of three or four people sit in groups with an answer sheet. After reading the questions, they put their heads together and jot down the best response. When the questions are done, the answer sheets are graded and winners declared. Small cash prizes and bragging rights go to the top teams. It only costs $1 per person to play and all the proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Project. The trivia group has donated more than $300 thus far. Im hoping for a record turnout for this months game. Come and join your friends and neighbors for a great time and at the same time, support a worthy cause. Bring your own liquid refreshments and other snacks to enjoy while you test your knowledge of all things trivial. See you there.Blood neededOn Tuesday, June 25 from 9 a.m. until noon, the Big Red Bus will be at the Cherrywood Clubhouse taking donations of live giving blood. You can be assured of prompt, courteous and professional services from the staff as you relax in the comfortable air conditioned facility. For anyone who has received a transfusion or has had a loved one receive a transfusion, you know the value of whole blood. Unfortunately, there is a shortage of all blood types in the summer months especially so please, be a hero and plan to donate.

Veterans Club meetingWe had a special treat at the Veterans Club meeting this past June 6. Al Morrison, the resident manager of Ritz House, brought two of the clients, Richard and Wayne, to our meeting to answer questions and share their experiences Richard spoke about his history at Ritz House as a recipient of treatment for the past nine months. Originally from New York, he was a Marine for eight years and has been improving his life since being at Ritz House. He is now getting ready to start college level classes. Wayne has been a resident for two months and is a six-year Army veteran. He came from Tennessee and has made great strides in improving his life. He commented on getting teeth very soon that will make a world of difference to him. Along with Al, two case workers and a full time psychologist work with the patients and guide them along the paths they must take to improve their lives. In the safe and comfortable rooms provided by the volunteers like the Cherrywood Veterans Club that furnished and redecorated a room; the Volunteers of America organization and in conjunction with the Veterans Administration, these men and women are given a second chance. Most if not all of the clients of Ritz House have been living on the streets but are now in a facility that provides treatment and care; respect and an opportunity at self sufficiency.

Al Sickle 208-5664 OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY June 16, 2013 1:00 to 2:00 PM WHISPERING PINES COMMENTARY BY GLENN MOLLETTE Recent news about cell phone giant Verizon is a bit disconcerting. Every phone record of every Verizon customer is now an open book to our government. Can we not call mom without it being the governments business? Is there no such thing as personal anymore? Alarmingly the answer is no. No one wants a terrorist living next door. We do not want people roaming our country looking for lives and buildings to destroy. Our FBI, CIA and military intelligence must be commended and praised for their efforts to prevent heinous acts from happening in our country. However, our liberty is at risk when anyone from the government can show up at any time and search through our homes, invade our personal property, invade our banking account information, go through our mail and family picture albums, or go through all of our computers to see every web page weve ever browsed. The books we read at the library, our newspaper subscriptions and what we bought at the grocery store is nobody elses business. I hear the argument If you arent hiding anything then what do you care? I care because, as a United States citizen, it is an invasion of our liberty. One invasion leads to another. The loss of freedom is slowly eroding in our country. The government is supposedly protecting you. Then one day we wake up in fear of making a move without government permission. Any invasion of our personal lives or privacy should go through proper channels and the legal process of being granted an investigative search warrant. In this scenario papers would have to be filled out explaining why such a search is necessary. Authorities who do such random searches must be held accountable for any damage done to the citizens home, family pictures, files, computers, clothes or any item that has been touched or mishandled in anyway. Authorities who search without just cause should be responsible for dry cleaning bills, carpet cleaning, painting and the purchase of new electronics if any of the electronics are damaged. If the suspicions end up true and the raided house ends us revealing someone who is plotting to hurt others then that changes the scenario. Those who search should never be allowed to destroy someones home and leave it in a state of disaster. When someone is suspected as being a threat to hurting anyone or suspected of being a terroristic threat to a community or our nation then of course everything must be done to determine what is going on and every precaution taken to save lives. The truth of the matter is that if the FBI invades a persons home and does a search and they find 50 guns it doesnt mean anything. Many people collect guns. If the person has told people about his plans to shoot people at the movie theatre or if he has written Privacy no longer an option threatening stuff on Facebook then the authorities have every right to take his guns, investigate and arrest him if they find documented facts. The Patriot Act was established after the 911 attacks. We will never forget the heinous crimes committed against our country. The question is this, Has the patriot act made us safer as a nation? The Patriot Act has given the government more freedom to invade any persons privacy in Any Place, USA, but has it made you safer? Do you feel safer because of the Patriot Act? Since the Patriot Act there have been countless episodes of violence that the new law has not prevented throughout the states. Military base shootings, office shootings, campus shootings, movie theatre shootings and more. For every terroristic act that has been stopped we celebrate as a country and thank those involved in preventing it. The Patriot Act needs to be edited. Our citizens should only have to fear criminals and terrorists, not government officials with a license to violate our civil liberties. There should be a compromise and a system of checks and balances that protect the freedom of Americans as well as keeping us safe.

Let your pantry serve as your starting point for creating memorable meals the family will love.Proper Pantry PracticesBefore letting those creative culinary juices flow, take inventory of your pantry. If you find items that are too old, that have never been touched, or that you hardly ever use get rid of them. Look closely at the ingredient list to decide which items to keep. Get rid of items filled with corn syrup and artificial sweeteners and colors. Foods with fewer ingredients and pronounce able words tend to be more natural or whole. Made from four ingredients, Kikkomans Soy Sauce is brewed naturally, using a traditional process that goes back hundreds of years. Other keepers include honey, canned beans, whole grain pastas or rice, raw nuts and olive oil. Once your pantry is in order, you can incorporate these healthy staples into meals using the freshest vegetables, poultry, fish and beef. By keeping your pantry stocked with the most whole some ingredients, you can be sure you are giving the very best to your family. For additional recipes and informa tion, visit www.kikkomanUSA.com.Natural,Quality Ingredients MaketheMeal Brining 101What exactly is brining? Much like a marinade, meat and poultry is soaked in flavorful liquid, such as an all-purpose seasoning like Kikkoman Soy Sauce. This adds a tremendous amount of flavor and also breaks down proteins, thus, tenderizing the meat or poultry. The only real rule to brining is that the meat must be kept cold throughout the entire pro cess.Usealargecontainer,cooler or brining bag that can fit into a refrigerator because the protein and brine solution has to be kept below 40 degrees at all times.

Must it insult our intelligence too? The governments response to Edward Snowdens leaks about the National Security Agencys secret monitoring of the Internet and collection of our telephone logs is a mass of contradictions. Officials have said the disclosures are (1) old news, (2) grossly inaccurate, and (3) a blow to national security. Its hard to see how any two of these can be true, much less all three. Cant they at least get their story straight? If they cant do better than that, why should we have confidence in anything else that they do? Snowden exposed the governments indiscriminate snooping because, among other things, it violates the Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable searches and he had no other recourse. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper says Snowden should have used established channels to raise his concerns, but there are no effective channels. Members of the congressional intelligence committees are prohibited from telling the public what they learn from their briefings. Two members of the Senate committee, Ron Wyden and Mark Udall, for years have warned without disclosing secrets that the Obama administration is interpreting the Patriot Act and related laws far more broadly than was ever intended by those who voted for those pieces of legislation. Their warnings have made no difference. A court challenge wasnt open to Snowden either. Glenn Greenwald, who published Snowdens leaks in the Guardian, notes that for years the ACLU has tried to challenge the surveillance programs in court on Fourth Amendment grounds, but the Obama administration has blocked the effort by arguing that the ACLU has no standing to bring the suit. Its a classic Catch-22. Since the surveillance is secret, no one can know if he has been spied on. But if no one knows, no one can go into court claiming to be a victim, and the government will argue that therefore the plaintiff has no standing to challenge the surveillance. Well played, Obama administration. The administration should not be allowed to get away with the specious claim that telling its secrets to a few privileged members of Congress is equivalent to informing the people. It is not. Its merely one branch of government telling some people in another branch. Calling those politicians our representatives is highly misleading. In what sense do they actually represent us? Equally specious is the assertion that the NSA cant monitor particular people without court authorization. The secret FISA court is a rubber stamp. When Obama ran for president in 2008, he said Americans shouldnt have to choose between privacy and security. Now he says that one of the things that were going to have to discuss and debate is how are we striking this balance between the need to keep the American people safe and our concerns about privacy? Because there are some tradeoffs involved. What do you take us for, Mr. President? Do you say whatever serves your momentary interest? Its outrageous for Obama to say he welcomes this debate when his regime is plotting to capture and prosecute the heroic whistleblower who made it possible. The debate would be bogus anyway. No one has a right to make a security/privacy tradeoff for you. Our rights should not be subject to vote, particularly when a ruling elite ultimately will make the decision out of public view! Americans have learned nothing from the last 40 years if they have not learned that the executive branch regardless of party will interpret any power as broadly as it wishes. Congressional oversight is worse than useless; its a myth, especially when one chamber is controlled by the presidents party and the other chambers majority embraces big government as long as it carries a national security label. Obama says, If people cant trust not only the executive branch but also dont trust Congress and dont trust federal judges to make sure that were abiding by the Constitution, due process and rule of law, then were going to have some problems here. Thats wrong. If the politicians only response to revelations that theyre violating our privacy is to ask for trust, then we already have problems.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). Hello, government analyst. Im so glad youre monitoring my phone calls and Facebook and Twitter accounts. I hope youre enjoying yourself. I know your bosses say that what you are doing is legal because a judge in a secret court signed off on it. But I havent heard anyone tell me why a secret court is legal. In America, arent our courts supposed to be open? Isnt that a part of freedom? Anyhow, Ill try to make things simple for you. My recent phone calls include some to my wifes workplace, some to my office and some to my two doctors. My wife has called her mother and at least two of our four children. Incoming calls are another matter. Since you have all the records there, can you tell me who some of the calls are coming from? Many times I get a call that says unknown on the Caller ID, and when I pick it up, theres no one there. Id like to know who is trying to reach me. I also get solicitation calls despite being on the do not call list. Can you trace some of those numbers for me so I can file complaints against them with the U.S. Attorneys office? As for my social media accounts, I know youre watching my Facebook contacts. Fact is, I have one friend who lives in another part of the world. I suppose that gets me on a list of suspects who is making foreign contacts, even though he is my cousin who I havent seen since the early 1960s. A lot of my other friends are also relatives. In the spirit of helping you, I want to let you know that I dont suspect any of them of terrorism. If you want to know what websites I visit (if you dont know already), let me assure you that most of my time online is spent reading other newspapers (the ones that are free and let you read their stories) and websites concerning baseball, particularly the Mets. I suppose being a Mets fan makes you want to flag my account as suspicious, but I assure you Ive been that way since 1962, and I havent committed any terror activities in that time (although the Mets can drive you insane easily enough). As for Twitter, yes I have an account, but I use it only to follow people and organizations. I have a total of zero followers myself. Most of the people I follow are sports writers, but I am also linked to people from The Weather Channel, CNN, and one foreign entity, Pope Francis at the Vatican. Finally, if you want to make sure I dont take part in any terrorist activities in the air, feel free to put me on a no-fly list. Its been years since Ive flown, and I have absolutely no desire to do so, but if putting me on that list makes you happy, go right ahead. I would send you a copy of this column, but youre probably monitoring my keystrokes as I type it, so I wont waste my time transmitting it to you. Heres hoping you and yours have a nice day.

Fathers Day is a time to show appreciation and honor to fathers and those special persons who have been fatherly figures, i.e., stepfather, brother, uncle, grandfather, or other. The first Fathers Day was officially observed on June 19, 1910, in Spokane, Washington. The special day was started by a woman, Sonora Dodd, who was inspired to honor her own father, William Smart, a widower who was left to raise six children alone, following his wifes death during childbirth. The idea of a national Fathers Day gained support in 1924 by President Calvin Coolidge, and again in 1966 when President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Fathers Day. For some, this holiday is dreaded, ignored, or treated like any other day because there is no father in the home. This is a growing problem in our society, But for many, it is a day to truly honor a person who has been a rock of stability in the home. It is truly heroic to be a father to a child. A father to a family. Being a father goes beyond a mans biological duties and functions. Being a father means to be this steadfast, strong individual, full of ideals and ready to stand by his principles. Why? Because he must be a living example to the people around him. He must be the epitome of a near-perfect existence. Someone who can live up to being that which he should be noted: the foundation of a home. As we celebrate Fathers Day this coming Sunday, June 16, we honor all fathers, grandfathers, husbands, brothers, sons, uncles, friends who have been blessed to be such living examples for us to emulate and to remember as sources of our strength. They are our inspiration and they are the foundations by which many of us, as individuals, draw our own characters. Remember to honor your father on this day at least with a call, if not more. And if your father is still around, thank him for all he has done, and be grateful that hes still with you. Fly your flag todayToday we celebrate Flag Day in honor of that decree more than two centuries ago. It was a Wisconsin school teacher in 1885 who first proposed a "Flag Birthday." Within a few years, celebrations were held by individual states. Flag Day was officially established with a proclamation by President Woodrow Wilson on May 30, 1916, but it was not until 1949, in the administration of President Harry S. Truman, that this became an official holiday. In the wake of Sept. 11, the flag has become popular once again, flying from homes and businesses across the nation. Newspapers such as this one published fullcolor versions soon after the terrorist attacks, and many of those newsprint flags still can be seen in windows thoughout the area. Over the years, a political and cultural chasm divided Americans. But after Sept. 11, we found ourselves with a common goal -to preserve our nation and the many freedoms it represents. The flag, with its 13 stripes and 50 stars, symbolizes that goal and the many men and women who have died to preserve those liberties. Wave the flag today, proudly, and recite the 31 words that say it all: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Each has had a story about over coming hardship; enduring difficult conditions; making successes from the ashes of failure. It is my and their hope that these stories have been an inspiration to you, the reader. In the events features such as the whimsical piece about Santa Claus, I endeavored to share a smile or two with you. Of the more somber pieces like that of Memorial Day and the Honor Flight I have tried to inform and share a tear or two. With every story, my purpose has been to instill a sense of pride in all those who shared their experiences and those who read them; pride in self; pride in our fellow man and pride in our country. In this day and age when there is nothing but bad news, I attempted to give you back what you all have given me; an abiding hope for the future. With the coming of summer vacations, I will be taking a break from the Spotlight articles until September. Should there be some unforeseen incident or event that merits mention, this section will reappear. I would like to express my sincere thanks to all of those who participated in making the Spotlight such a success; especially you, the readers of the Citizen. Have a safe and happy summer.From your reporterElaine and John Rozak were among the many Cherrywood residents who attended the Honor Flight return. Unfortunately, their name was misspelled in the article and for that I am sincerely sorry. It was a glorious night of shared celebration and it was unfortunate their name appeared incorrectly.

GLORIA VANDERBILT: It Seemed Important at the Time By Gloria Vanderbilt CNN journalist Anderson Cooper calls his mothers kiss-and-tell romance memoir a nice little read that people should enjoy. The subtitle could easily be he seemed important at the time because both lovers and husbands often had a short shelf life. The cover tells a lot before even reading the first page. A row of lovers appearlike Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando, and Howard Hughes for starters. There would be many others and some married. But listen to Gloria admonishing readers not to follow her example: Ive been involved with three married men in my life. Take it from me, if you are even tempteddont. She identifies two of themRoald Dahl, who she says meant nothing to her and was something of a dry lemon who gifted her with an unpublished story. Bill Paley was another. But she does not name the photographer who was Number 3, leaving readers to wonder. The rush to discard one lover in order to move on to another suggests that these were crushes more than true romances. Was poor little rich girl looking for a father in these early liaisons? She questions that herself. Certainly it would explain her marriage to the legendary and much older conductor Leopold Stokowski. As a child Glorias cold aunt Gertrude Whitney made her a virtual prisoner. It seems natural to celebrate her freedom and extraordinary beauty by takBookmark Pat Wellington A kiss and tell memoir ing various lovers and they were diverse. And you have to admire her energy. All that lovemaking and she still found time to paint, design, act, and write. In this little book she skims over her abysmal childhood and ushers us into her teens when, enamored with actor Van Heflin, she became engaged to him briefly. Then she married her first husband, discovering, she says, that he was a pig. There followed Stokowski and two sons, then director Sidney Lumet, and finally, the love of her life, Wyatt Cooper. Little space is devoted to the tragedy of losing a child. (Andersons older brother Carter hurled himself from an upper story window to his death.) Perhaps it makes sense for an older woman to write such a memoir. After all, she had many years to collect lovers. But dont look for substance or deathless prose here. This frothy, gossipy book can be read in an hour or two. Those who find the Vanderbilts fascinating will love the wonderful photographs throughout.

He loves to ride in the car but most of all to snuggle with his people. He is also fine with other small dogs. Hes already neutered, up to date on all shots, and on heartworm preventative. Buddy does have a special need in that hes on a prescription diet for kidney stones. Its possible it could clear up but its also possible he would need that diet from now on. When you call Mary she will give you the details. Buddy will also require a dental later this year, as most senior dogs need, and you can work with Mary around that. If youre a senior a senior dog could be the perfect dog for you. Please call Mary at 352-528-0270 to meet Buddy and help him find his new forever home. On Page 17 is a current picture of tuxedo cats Pando and Coco at a year old. They came into foster care as tiny kittens and have been there for just over a year. Coco has adopted Panda as his step sister since all their siblings have gone to forever homes. Now its time that they had a forever home of their own, together of course. These elegant beauties are great company for each other, which makes it easier for you to care for them. They wont tire you out like kittens can, yet theyre still very young and lively. Think of all the fun you can have high-fiving those cute little white mittens. If you can only adopt one cat, Arlene has Ebony and Smokey available. These young cats have gone through the trap, neuter, release program since the beginning of the year. They are neutered, have all their shots including rabies and are microchipped. Arlene has socialized them for the past six months so they will make wonderful pets. Please give her a call at 352-8759761 to meet one or all of these fantastic felines.Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. PAWSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 This is terrier mix Buddy. Fathers Day is Sunday. The rst Fathers Day was celebrated in 1910. Back then fathers didnt have it nearly as good as fathers of today; but they did have a few advantages: Back then, if a father put a roof over his familys head, he was a success. Today, it takes a roof, pool, TVs, and three-car garage. Back then, fathers could help their children with their school work. Today, fathers rely on their kids to teach them how to work the computer and the smart phone. Back then, fathers passed on clothing to their sons. Today, kids wouldnt touch Dads clothes if they were sliding naked down an icicle. Back then, a father came home from work to find his wife and children at the supper table with a home-cooked meal. Today, a father comes home to a note, Jimmys at baseball, Cindys at gymnastics, Im at adult-ed; pizza in fridge.A tall taleThe father knocked on the bathroom door where his teenage daughter had been taking a bath for over an hour. Cindy! Just how long will you be in that bathtub? From the other side of the door came the reply: Oh Daddy! Water doesnt affect your height. Im still 5-4!Weighty answerA college freshman came home after being away all semester. Her father looked her up and down, then said, Arent you a lot thinner than when you went away? Yes I am, Dad, the girl admitted. I weigh 120 pounds stripped for gym. The father stared at her for a moment in horrified amazement. Finally, he shouted, Well, tell me this. Just who is Jim?Hows that?The flustered father of twins, his first babies, had them out in a carriage when a neighbor approached and asked their names. Steak and Kidney, the father answered. What?

Take someone special with you. TAURU S ( April 20 to May 20) Take a little restorative time out of your busy life. Go somewhere quiet this weekend. Or just close the door, turn on the answering machine and pretend youre away. GEMIN I (May 21 to J une 20) Your advice might be in demand by family and friends this week. But reserve time for yourself to investigate a project that could have unexpected potential. CA NCE R (June 21 to J uly 22) Work-related issues demand your attention early in the week. Family matters dominate Thursday and Friday. But the weekend is yours to spend as you please. LE O (July 23 to Aug 22) Try to keep your temper in check as you deal with someone who seems to enjoy showing disrespect. Losing your Leonine cool might be just what the goader hopes to see. VIRG O ( Aug 23 to Sept. 22) A heated confrontation needs some cool-off time before it boils over. Better to step away than to try to win an argument where emotions overrule the facts. LIBRA ( Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Someone very special in your life finally sends that reassuring message youve been hoping for. You can now devote more time to the tasks you had put aside. SCORP IO ( Oct. 23 to No v. 21) Job pressures begin to ease by the weeks end, leaving you time to relax and restore your energy levels before you face next weeks emerging challenges. SAGI TTARIU S (No v. 22 to D ec. 21) Your spiritual strength helps calm a friend who might be facing an unsettling change in his or her life. An offer to help comes from a surprising source.

A QUARIU S (Jan. 20 to Feb 18) One of those rarefor-you darker moods sets in the early part of the week. But by Thursday, the clouds lift and youre back doing nice things for people in need. P ISCE S ( Feb 19 to M arch 20) Use that sharp Piscean perceptiveness to reel in more information about a promising offer so that you have the facts to back up whatever decision you make.

Lumina Kit Cayer Gouvin, 89 Stonington, Conn. On Saturday, June 8, 2013, Marie Rose Lumina Kit Cayer Gouvin died peacefully at her home. She led a remarkable life filled with love, family, and faith. Kit was a relentlessly upbeat, positive, and creative person. She had faith that things would work out for the best. She was best known for her crafts and her baking. She made and gave away hundreds of Raggedy Anne dolls and Holly Hobby dolls and Father Christmases and quilts of every description. She belonged to several quilting groups in Westerly, Rhode Island and Ocala, Fla. The act of quilting suited her well. With her characteristic creativity and hard work she transformed scraps of cloth into works of art. We cannot count how many wedding cakes, birthday cakes, Christmas cookies, and banana breads she made in her life. All we know is that each one was an act of love. Kits devotion to spiritual matters sustained her through difficult times and gave her a joyful appreciation for good times. Her favorite prayer was the quick request: Dear God, give me strength! Apparently, He did. She was a longtime communicant at St. Michaels church in Pawcatuck, Conn., and Queen of Peace church in Ocala. Among many volunteer roles she played in her life, she served in the St. Michaels Ladies Guild and the Queen of Peace CCW. She was a fun-loving person an avid reader and an enthusiastic player of games. She loved to play Scrabble, Upwords and Rumikub or just a hand of gin rummy. She was a friend to many and, through her work as a hospice volunteer, a comfort to others at the most difficult phase in life. Her family and friends will miss her dearly, but she lives on through the love she shared and the lessons she taught. Born Oct. 19, 1923, in Alton, R.I., Kit was the daughter of Joseph Cayer and Lumina Cinq Mars Cayer. She grew up on a farm and her nickname came from an old workhorse named Kit. She bore that name well, always working tirelessly and without complaint as a wife, a mother, a volunteer, a waitress at several popular restaurants, and as a cafeteria attendant at the Westerly Hospital. Kit graduated from Westerly High School in the class of 1941. She immediately went to work at the Bradford Dyeing Association where she tested parachute silk and other materials bound for military use. Like countless other men and women of her era, she fought World War II here on the home front. In the middle of the war she met Paul N.H. Gouvin of Pawcatuck, Conn., who served in the Army in the South Pacific with Kits brother Joe. Just as Paul and Joe were being sent back to the states after their tour of duty in the Pacific, Joe received a serious injury and asked Paul to go to the Cayer farm to let everyone know he was okay and would be home soon. That fortuitous trip to the farm eventually resulted in Kit and Paul getting married on June 1, 1946, after Paul returned from a tour of duty in Europe. They remained married until Paul died Jan. 31, 1999. They had nine children together. Kit often joked that she never had a headache. She is survived by all of her children, listed here with their spouses, Theresa Gouvin Feeley and Richard Feeley of Burlington, Vt., Francine Bernard of West Palm Beach, Doris King Longo and Frank Longo of Mystic, Conn., Pauline Gouvin of St. Charles, Mo., Catherine Gouvin of Mystic, Conn., John Gouvin and Tess Chiofi Gouvin of Richmond, Vt., Janette Gouvin Centracchio and Barry Centracchio of Narragansett, R.I., Eric Gouvin and Beth Lovejoy of Longmeadow, Mass., and Pierre Gouvin of Mystic, Conn. In addition, she is survived by twelve grandchildren, Brad Feeley, Seth Feeley, Claire Rose Bernard, Max Bernard, Tyler King, Amy King Snell, Emily Morris, Elizabeth Kircher, Thomas Kircher, Lucy Gouvin, Joe Gouvin and Julia GouvinMoffat. Eight great-grandchildren also survive her, Mollie and Summer Feeley, Grayson and Maggie Morris, Ethan Kircher Bright, Tyler King Jr. and Lily and Nora Snell. Many of her siblings survive her as well: her sisters, Cecile OKeefe, Louise (and Eric) Burton, Bette Gerrish and Theresa Pharris; and her brothers, Joseph (and Kay) Cayer and Wilfred (and Hazel) Cayer. She was predeceased by her brothers, Fred Cayer and Paul Cayer. She is also survived by her sisters-inlaw, Nancy Guthrie Cayer, Patricia Gouvin; and her brother-in-law, Donald Gouvin; along with numerous nieces and nephews. Finally, she is also survived by her dear friend, Ed Pritchard of Ocala. There will be visiting hours from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday, June 14 at St. Mary Mother of the Redeemer Church, 69 Groton Long Point Road, Groton, Conn., to be followed immediately by a funeral mass at 11 a.m. In the fall, the family plans to have a memorial mass at Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Ocala with interment at the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell next to her husband. At Kits request, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to Center for Hospice Care Southeast Connecticut, 227 Dunham Street, Norwich, CT 06360, (860) 848-5699, http://www.hospicesect.or g; or Hospice of Marion County, 3231 SW 34th Ave., Ocala, FL 34474 (352) 873-7400, http://www.hospiceofmarion.com.

OBITUARY Pop cornMy father always proposed a toast before he disciplined me. Thats funny! What was it? Bottoms up, son! The barber was going to hand his business over to his son, but the lad disowned his father after he had taken a good look at his roots. It was a terrible case of heir loss. By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks hes wrong. Its hard for a five-foot-six father to explain to his six-footone son why junk food is bad for you. Father to unwelcome suitor: I dont want my daughter tied to a hopeless idiot all her life. Suitor: Of course not, sir. Then I take it I have your consent?NumerousThree fathers were in a hospital waiting for waiting for their babies to be born. A nurse came out and told the first father, Congratulations youre the father of twins! He said, Great! I am the manager for the Minnesota Twins. Later, another nurse came out and told the second father, Congratulations youre the father of triplets. He said, Thats cool! I work for 3M. Then the third father opened the window and jumped out. When the third nurse came out, and asked, Wheres the third father? One of the other fathers said, Oh he jumped out the window. The nurse asked, Why? He replied, He works for Seven Up!

fore the end of the year. During this time, the parties will seek all necessary state and local government regulatory approvals. We are pleased to be moving this partnership between Munroe Regional, Health Management and UF Health Shands Hospital forward as we focus our efforts toward the growth of Munroe Regional, its medical staff and Marion County and surrounding communities, said Alan Levine, Senior Vice President and Florida Group President for Health Management Associates. Our partnership will invest in, and build upon, the success and reputation for great care that Munroe Regionals physicians, nurses and other caregivers already provide. By combining the talents of Munroe Regional, the resources of Health Management and the academic strength of UF Health Shands Hospital, the partnership will provide the region the best opportunity to strengthen and improve the health of the community for years to come. However, the agreement comes at a time when HMA, based in Naples, Florida, has been the subject of stories in that area concerning problems within the company. On May 2, the Naples Daily News reported that the Securities and Exchange Commission was investigating the firm and had asked for information on its accounting practices. Then in early June, the president and CEO announced his retirement, saying he was going to lead a Mormon mission, according to the newspaper. Then on June 5, the company announced it was cutting some benefits to 1,400 employees. Last Sunday, the company was featured on CBS Televisions Minutes, where former employees stated they were pressured to admit patients regardless of medical need to achieve quotas. The company denied the accusations. According to a news release, Health Management and its statewide clinical partner, UF Health Shands Hospital, will well position Munroe Regional as it continues to invest in clinical integration. UF Health Shands Hospital and Munroe Regional will develop a clinical affiliation committee composed of physicians to help guide research and clinical relationships that benefit patients, Marion County and surrounding communities. Weve had a longstanding relationship with Munroe Regional and are excited about the opportunity to strengthen that relationship in partnership with Health Management, said Timothy Goldfarb, CEO of Shands HealthCare. Under the lease agreement, Health Management will keep Munroe Regionals existing charity care policy, and the hospital will operate under the guidance of a local Board of Trustees consisting of physicians and local community leaders who share a passion for high quality care and service. Further, Munroe Regional will begin paying annual property taxes, and generating funds to support law enforcement, schools and other local community needs. After a very thorough review process, we are proud to be moving forward with Health Management and UF Health Shands Hospital two Florida organizations with excellent track records of service to the communities they operate in, said Jon Kurtz, Chairman of the Marion County Hospital District Board. UF Healths academic leadership in Florida, combined with Health Managements footprint and experience operating hospitals in Floridas unique environment are coming together with Munroe Regionals legacy of service to create a transformational opportunity for Marion County.Friday, June 14, 2013 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 2~ Friday, June 14, 2013 www.smcitizen.com National Cremation Society Considering Cremation?

Slay noted that it would be costly to provide bus service to the southwest area. That didnt deter a couple of people from saying that a bus service was needed. Others pointed out, though, that it would be hard for the elderly population to get to a central bus stop for pickup. There would be a problem, Slay said, with access and the maneuverability of the buses in some of the developments. That means that people would have to travel to a central point. In other matters, Slay spoke about the 38th Avenue project, which will be built parallel to the Interstate on the west side of the highway. He also mentioned a 49th Avenue extension, which would tie in to the new 38th Avenue. The proposed interchange at 95th Street was discussed. Slay said the matter has been reviewed by the state and is now in the hands of the federal officials. A concern has been expressed, he said, about merging traffic on and off the highway, because the truck weigh station is located just north of the proposed access point at 95th Street. The project has been a bone of contention with environmentalists and others who say it is not necessary and would hurt the living conditions in that part of the area. Others note, however, that it would enhance the chances for economic development in areas surrounding the exit. Slay also spent part of his time talking about MPO funding, primarily about the local gas tax, which is somewhere about 12 cents a gallon. The next meeting of the Coalition will be July 15, the third Monday, rather than the usual time of the second Monday. 28~ Friday, June 14, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Fly your flag today: Its Flag Day Buses not likely for 200 Corridor PHOTO BY JIM CLARKGreg Slay speaks to the State Road 200 Coalition.

Work has started on the historic heart of Ocala, which is undergoing minor improvements, which are expected to be complete by Oct. 1. The renovation process will likely not cause significant interference with daily pedestrian movement and traffic circulation. Sidewalks and the frontage road will remain open, except during demolition operations, construction work or loading/unloading of equipment. Impact on parking will be minimal, with a multitude of public parking still available: http://www.feeldowntownocala.com/parking-downtown/. Scheduled programs or events between these dates may have to be relocated to other downtown areas. In order to provide a premier event venue, a permanent built-in stage will be attached to the gazebo with accessible ramps and steps. Maintenance issues with the center star and sound system will be addressed and corrected. Delineated spaces within the space will be created, as well as clean lines of slight by altering vertical obstructions. Square gets a facelift Health Management Associates, Inc.
