The rezoning case is scheduled to come before the County Commission on Tuesday, July 16, at 2 p.m. At the last meeting, developer Enrique Suarez of Miami agreed to hold a town meeting prior to the case coming before the board. That meeting is tentatively scheduled for today, Friday, July 12, at Freedom Public Library at 3:30 p.m. and is open to the public. The change in zoning would, according to neighbors, allow for more houses in the development, which, according to notes from previous county meetings, is not planned as an over-55 community. It could accommodate as many as 220 detached single-family homes. The area east of Southwest 62nd Avenue Road, south of 95th Street and State Road 200, and north of 103rd Street Road, is referred to by county officials as being in the SR 200/I-75 triangle. A major bone of contention is access to the site. The property is virtually surrounded by Cherrywood Estates, two phases, Oak Crest, Woods and Meadows East, Meadow Glenn and Alejandria Estates. The small Alejandria area would bear the brunt of access off busy Southwest 103rd Street Road to the south. Alejandria consists of Southwest 56th Avenue, northbound from 103rd, and 104th Street, on the north side of Alejandria. Entering 56th,and continuing to the northern end of the development, there is right of way leading to the property in question, and that is one of the roads considered for access, which residents claim would change the nature of the small, quiet subdivision.28~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Residents fight zoning changeCounty hearing Tuesday; town hall meeting is today (Friday) PLEASESEEZONING, PAGE3 A 69-year-old Pine Run man died Saturday, July 6 in the gated communitys swimming pool. Erich E. Zeuch of Southwest 101st Lane was spotted in the pool by neighbors who had been in the communitys hot tub and moved over to the pool. They pulled him out and immediately began CPR, according to a report from the Marion County Sheriffs Office. Others called 91-1 from the phone on the wall at the clubhouse. A security guard spoke to Zeuch just a few minutes before the incident and the victim reportedly told the guard he had four more laps to go. He said he swims about 45 minutes a day. Neighbors told deputies that Zeuch lived alone. An autopsy was scheduled. Pine Run man dies in pool The largest school supply drive in Marion County celebrates a dozen years of giving to students this summer. Operation: Stuff the Bus started in 2002 as a summer drive to gather school supplies for Marion Countys homeless students. Today, the program helps approximately 2,500 needy students throughout Marion County Public Schools. The annual program is cosponsored by Marion County Public Schools and local military organizations. Operation: Stuff the Bus affords local residents the opportunity to make a true difference in a homeless childs life by donating new school supplies, childrens clothing, shoes, books and games, personal hygiene items, gifts cards and financial contributions. To date, the campaign has collected approximately Stuff the Bus starts Saturday PLEASESEEBUS, PAGE3 Celebrating the Fourth of July Crossroads Church holds eventCrossroads Church of God hosted a Fourth of July celebration to commemorate our independence provided for by our Founding Fathers in our Constitution. To open the events of the evening, there was a parade of bikes or anything that rolled on wheels and was decorated with the Fourth of July theme. The participants decorated their trikes, bikes and even baby coaches with the American flag and other Independence Day symbols. Pastor Richard Colon led the procession as Bishop Paul Woosley brought up the rear on his motorcycle. Emily Kimball was made up as Lady Liberty and rode in a decorated chariot pulled by her mother, Melinda Kimball, on a bike adorned with PHOTO BY HARRY LAMBAngellyna Wilson rides her bike in the Crossroads parade.

More photos on Page 27. Financial, theft cases being probedDeputies are looking into two cases in the Southwest area involving possible financial fraud and theft of a laptop. An 85-year-old man from On Top of the World recently had his car repossessed, and when his daughter flew down from up north to find out why, she discovered irregularities in his finances. She told deputies she found numerous personal checks written out to another individual. The victim has had three strokes in the past year and can only remember writing some of the checks. The investigation is continuing. In another case, a woman who grounded her son took away his laptop and stored it in a closet. When her exboyfriend moved out, the laptop was found to be missing. The boyfriend reportedly moved to California. The woman knew which pawn shop her boyfriend used, went to the shop and found thelaptop. She was able to boot it up to show that she was the owner and deputies were called. The probe is continuing. 000FEMKwww.pearsonnissanofocala.com2060 Sw College Rd. Ocala

Chuckles prevailed when a young boy arrived on his tricycle wearing an Uncle Sam hat that was clearly bigger than his head. He was one of the youngest in the parade. During the event food and beverages were available at very reasonable prices. How could we celebrate our Independence Day without fireworks, a good old fashioned hotdog and a big soft drink? Reportedly this was the largest turnout so far, and all who attended had a great time with loads of camaraderie.

Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING At the western end of 104th there is a cul-de-sac, but there is a platted road running north, called Southwest 57th Terrace Road, also, according to county records, known as Seabiscuit Drive. This road could be improved to give access. If the road south of 104th were finished, it would take it directly to 103rd, but would run right next to the newly improved Liberty Park, at the corner of 103rd and 57th. Other planned access points include Southwest 100th Street to the east, which is publicly dedicated but unimproved, and Southwest 101st Place, a paved road that exists to the west of the property in question. In a letter to neighbors, Cathy Belculfine of Alejandria Estates noted, Without a doubt a mixed family sub-division will generate hundreds of extra vehicles on Southwest 103rd Street Road. If you have ever been stuck in traffic on this two-lane road behind a school bus and think it was bad, picture 220 more homes using this road. Think of it, there could be many homes with three vehicles, do the math, 660 cars or motorcycles; just one trip in and out would generate 1,980 vehicles daily. County staff recommended approval of the rezoning, citing three issues that first, it would not adversely affect the public interest; second, is consistent with the Marion County Comprehensive Plan and, third, is compatible with the surrounding land uses. Its that third statement that people are criticizing, noting that only Cherrywood Phase 8, to the northwest of the property, is PUD; all other surrounding developments are R-1. Early in the process, when neighbors were notified, several letters were received by the county protesting, including: Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Suchan of Southwest 103rd Loop ZONINGCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 in Cherrywood: Any and all changes made to rezone this property will be detrimental to the valuation of all properties surrounding this parcel of land. Please take into consideration all the homeowners in the immediate area of this property and the bad effect it will have on them and their homes. Jack Kreutchic of Southwest 56th Avenue in Alejandria Estates: If this is allowed and 200 plus homes are built on this parcel over 800 car trips each day would be passing our home. In the over 30 years I have lived in Marion County this is the first time I have asked for any government official to help me. He noted at a meeting that percent of the surrounding properties were zoned R-1. Speaking at a meeting, Leonard Caldwell of Southwest 54th Court in Woods and Meadows, said that to be comparable to surrounding subdivisions, the developer could develop no more than 100 homes. William Ballou of Southwest 100th Loop advised of security and safety concerns caused by the increase in population and traffic that would be allowed if the rezoning was approved. For reference, the county case is 130407Z for parcel 35695-011-01. Although Suarez is the owner, the official applicant is Angela Bernal, architect. $375,000 in donations and merchandise, which has been distributed through the school districts Homeless Student program and guidance counselors.

Many times, some of his men literally froze to death during the Revolutionary War, but he was always spared. Every last one of them should have starved to death. Several times there were fortuitous weather phenomena that helped him win over superior forces armed and provisioned to the teeth. Miraculous fogs appeared at precisely the right time, on several occasions. Not a moment too soon, nor a moment too late. Just right. How do you account for that? It was only by the hand of God that these things could have happened. Because of the overwhelming circumstances, extreme weather, ill provisioned and equipped, the U.S. troops should have lost, but with Washingtons leadership, and divine intervention the U.S. troops prevailed. Their victories were miraculous; Gods hand was clearly with this man. I think providence wanted this nation to be born. Are we to witness her demise? Not if I can help it. Is this a nation worth fixing, and keeping? It does need a little work, and a few patriots. But, it is a keeper. D.I.

Only one class can be missed in the 8-session series and the CPR and last class is mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the Sheriffs Office. The purpose of CERT is to train and certify volunteers to be first responders in their communities in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane or tornado. The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism. Studies of behavior following a disaster have shown that volunteers perform more effectively if they have had prior training and planning in how to function as a team.

A cowboy was walking down the street with his new pet dachshund. A passerby asked him why a cowboy would own that kind of dog. The cowboy answered, Well, somebody told me to get a long little doggie.Sonnys placeAt the turn of the century a cattle baron bought his three boys a ranch near Arcadia to raise cattle. He named it Focus because thats where the sons raise meat. They kept track of the cows and bulls on a catalyst.Real cowboyA kid walked up to a man wearing a 10-gallon hat, leather vest, leather chaps, and sneakers. The kid asked him, Mr. Cowboy, why do you wear that big hat? The cowboy replied, Well, son, the big hat protects me from hot sun and driving rain, and at night I put it over my face when I sleep on the range, so it protects me then, too. Why do you wear that leather vest? It also helps to keep the weather off me, and it has pockets where I can keep my valuables. Well, why do you wear leather chaps? They protect my legs when Im driving my horse through mesquite and cactus. Well, Mr. Cowboy, the kid finally asked, Why do you wear sneakers? Thats so nobody will think Im a truck driver.Off the cuffCowboys Joe and Fess were resting their horses out in the wilderness near Williston. Whatd Emmaline give yew for yore birthday? asked Joe.

Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, July 18, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. We always welcome new members, or for you to come as a guest to see what we do. This is a good time to come to one of our meetings if your other activities have stopped for the summer. Please give us a call at 352362-0985 if you would like more information about our meetings or have any other questions for us. The SPCA still needs your help with dog and cat food donations. We are in desperate need of dog and cat food for the Pets on Wheels program. Right now, we especially need dog kibble, although all food is welcome. SPCA members 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, as well as 3 ounce cans of cat food such as Fancy Feast. 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. We have never been this low on food since we began working with the program, and 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 extremely grateful for your generosity. Adoption NewsThe SPCA is still fostering the two wonderful dogs that were highlighted in last months column. We have some new information about little Buddy the terrier mix. We first thought that he was between one and This is Buddy. This is Daisy. This is Ebony. This is Smokey. New members are always welcome at meetings of the SPCA Paws & Claws Maria Devine PLEASESEESPCA, PAGE7 THE 9TH GIRL By Tami Hoag In her latest thriller th Girl Tami Hoag creates a dynamite opening slangily referred to in creative writing as the grabber. Sociology grad student Jamal Jackson is driving a 20-seat white Hummer on New Years Eve in frigid Minneapolis when his noisy, intoxicated passengers distract him for a second just long enough for him to plow into the vehicle ahead. Now his attention was laser focused on what was right in front of him: a tableau from a horror movie illuminated by harsh white xenon headlights. A woman popped up in the trunk of the car like a freak-show jack-in-the-box. Jamal shrieked at the sight as the woman flipped out of the trunk, hit the pavement, and came upright directly in front of him. The womans face had melted away and she was covered in blood. Jamal would have nightmares about the scene for years to come. So unidentifiable was the female corpse that police dubbed her Zombie Doe. Enter homicide detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska whose task it was to discover the identity of the young woman and the person or persons who hated her enough to destroy her in such a grisly manner. Kovac admits that he had seen more dead bodies than he could count. Men, women, children; victims of shootings, stabbings, strangulations, beatings; fresh corpses and bodies that had been left in trunks of cars or in the dead of summer. But he had never seen anything quite like this. As the ninth Jane Doe in a year surfaces, police had to consider a serial killer. The problem, though, was that Zombies injuries did not match those of the other victims. Even so, some argued that the killer may have changed his MO. Leaning in the direction of serial murders is a sustained red herring. Complicating an already complex case, one of Liskas teenage sons knew Zombie Doe from school. A major theme running through the novel is teenage obsession with social media and their clueless parents failure to supervise their childrens activities. A similar theme was explored in an earlier novel Reconstructing Amelia. Although theres plenty of nail-biting action here, theres also much needless repetition. And the bizarre climax is justified only if Hoag wanted to shock her readers senseless because instead of tying up loose ends, the finale leaves them to dangle and confuse. Still, real fans are sure to overlook such flaws and happily embrace the novelists latest.

Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your persistence pays off as the information you demanded starts to come through. The pace is slow at first, but it begins to speed up as the week draws to a close. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) An unwelcome bit of news jolts the Bovine, who would prefer that things proceed smoothly. But its at most a momentary setback. A Leo brings more welcome tidings. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You need to pay close attention to the details before making a commitment. Dont accept anything that seems questionable, unless you get an answer that can be backed up. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Congratulations on getting that project up and running. But as exciting as it is, dont let it carry you away. Make sure you set aside time to spend with family and friends. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Be sure youre part of the discussion involving your suggestions. Your presence ensures that you can defend your work, if necessary. It also helps gain your colleagues support. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A misunderstanding needs to be dealt with, or it can grow and cause more problems later on. Be the bigger person and take the first step to clear the air. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Set some strict guidelines for yourself so your heavier-than-usual work schedule doesnt overwhelm the time you need to spend relaxing with loved ones. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might feel a little uncomfortable being among people you hardly know. But remember that todays strangers can become tomorrows valuable contacts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Reward yourself for all that youve accomplished despite some annoying situations that got in your way. Enjoy a well-earned getaway with someone special. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Realizing that someone else is taking credit for what you did is bound to get anyones goat, but especially yours. Be patient. The truth soon comes out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Forget about opposites attracting. What you need is to find someone who thinks like you and will support your ideas, even if others say theyre too radical. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Workplace problems can affect your financial plans. Be prudent and avoid making commitments until things begin to ease up by the 26th. BORN THIS WEEK: Your intuition helps you communicate easily with people and understand their needs. two years old, but when he was neutered the vet thought that he was much younger. So at this time Buddy is about eight months old, which makes him an older puppy. Since many of you want a puppy, perhaps you will consider Buddy now. He is also a unique looking little fellow with milk chocolate eyes and a chocolate brown face. His fluffy tail is curled over his back as if he has some spitz in him, and his face and ears are Chihuahua-like. His overall impression and demeanor is like a terrier, so were calling him a terrier mix, but who knows? Like most terriers, hes very playful, smart and funny. Hell take his favorite toys out so the two of you can play together, and he hasnt met a throw toy he doesnt like. At 15 pounds, Buddy is a great size for most households, and even if he grows a bit more, he wont get much bigger. Hes not yappy, gets along with both cats and dogs, loves his walks and doesnt pull on the leash. Hes housetrained, in excellent health, current on all shots and neutered. If a lively terrier type cant tire you out, then Buddys the boy for you. Please call the SPCA at 352-362-0985 to meet Buddy and gain a new friend. The delightful Daisy is our other wonderful dog. Shes about 5 years old and looks like a dachshund/beagle cross so were calling her a hound mix. Shes fully grown at 25 pounds, which is also a very manageable sized dog for just about anyone. Although she can also fit into many households, she would be perfect for a senior person or couple. Shes very sweet and gentle, doesnt need to constantly play she will be happy to cuddle in your arms while you watch TV or lie near you while youre puttering around the house. Shell always let you know when its time to do her business, so you wont have to clean up accidents. Although shes quiet, she will bark to alert you if someone is coming by the house. 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. Daisy is really an easy dog to care for. She has been socialized to other dogs and cats while in foster care, so if theyre not rowdy or aggressive, she should be fine with them. 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 little lady. For you cat lovers out there, Arlene still has cats available. Last month we showed you a current picture of tuxedo cats Panda and Coco at a year old. If you would like to adopt a pair of cats, Panda and Coco would be perfect for you because they are best friends and love to be together. They will entertain themselves when youre busy or out of the house, so theyre easy cats to care for. If you can only adopt one cat, Ebony and Smokey are available these cuties are pictured here. They are neutered, have all their shots including rabies, and are microchipped. Arlene has socialized them for the past seven months so they will make wonderful pets. Many people who have adopted a cat from Arlene have called or written to tell us how easily the cats or kittens have assimilated into their households. Please give her a call at 352-875-9761 to meet one or all of these kitties.Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

It began on Thursday when Sarah and Frank Blair hosted a wonderful cook out at their home. The huge array of food was delicious and the company was terrific. I was able to spend some quality social time with friends from the cribbage club as well as make new acquaintances. Like millions of other Americans, I ate too much as I sat under the patriotic decorations enjoying friends, freedom and good times. Then on Saturday, I was honored to participate in the Veterans Appreciation Dinner sponsored by the Veterans Club of Cherrywood. It was a special evening because Skip Smith gave the Pledge of Allegiance; something that we, his friends, thought would never happen. His voice was strong, clear and proud. I also shared a special experience with another friend; Marty Duesel. Marty carried the POW/MIA flag in our color guard and was part of a special ceremony remembering those who have not returned. During an ambush in Vietnam, one of Martys friends was hit. Because of the intense fire fight, no one was able to get to him and so he remains Missing in Action. On this Fourth of July weekend I was able to enjoy good times as we celebrated Americas birthday and in addition; I had the honor and privilege of standing among heroes. It doesnt get any better than that. If you have ideas, comments or suggestions about the Cherrywood column in your Citizen, please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Im always happy to hear from you, the reader. Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 12, 2013 BY GLENN MOLLETTE Special to the CitizenWeve seen religious fighting too often on television. From Egypt weve heard about the power of the Muslim brotherhood and from Afghanistan the fighting between the Sunnis and Shias. We have enough problems in our country and the average American is not interested in religious violence. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution states that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ... Article VI specifies that no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States. I do not know of any church or religious entity that wants to change our heritage of separation of church and state. Initially stated by Roger Williams who founded the first Baptist Church in America and then restated by Thomas Jefferson in a January 1, 1802 letter he wrote to the Danbury Baptist Association in Connecticut, Williams-had written in 1644 of [A] hedge or wall of separation between the garden of the church and the wilderness of the worldJefferson wrote, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between Church & State. When we speak of religious freedom we mean the right granted legally to individuals to practice and preach religion. It also means not being persecuted for holding any form of religious beliefs. Our forefathers came to America to distance them selves from a religion run and oppressed by the government. As long as religion is not doing anything illegal or does not hurt the citizens of a country, then it should be free to practice its beliefs. Our nation is host to a multitude of religious opinions and groups. Each entity should enjoy the religious freedom that America offers. America is a land where we have the freedom to have religious convictions and the freedom to preach and practice our convictions. America must remain a place where religions are free to come and practice their religion. I am a Christian, so Im not very excited to see the explosion of other religions throughout our country. It is said that the general overall Christian population has become lackadaisical or lukewarm. This attitude is evidenced by a lack of church attendance and church buildings that have few people attending. Some churches have gone out of business and sold their buildings. For years, America has declared itself as a Christian nation with a Christian founding. Christianity has flourished in America because we have had the freedom to do so. Christianity has the freedom to continue to flourish if it chooses to do so. No one in America is standing in the way of Christian progress. The only group that hurts Christianity is the Christians. Christianity has the freedom to wake up or die a slow death. America is a land of the exercise of free religion. We should not begrudge other religions that become passionate and flourish in their work. We may not agree with their beliefs and what they are propagating but this is America. As long as religion does not violate the law, it should be welcomed in America. Ive been around strong religious opinions all my life. When I was child I would hear my grandparents and my parents declare their feelings about different religious ideas. Ive been around church denominations that felt as if they had it 100 percent right. Some religious denominations think they are the only ones going to heaven. As a young minister there were plenty of days when I ignorantly thought that some of the other Christian denominations had it all wrong. Actually, in my opinion some of them do have some of it wrong. The beauty of America is that we enjoy the freedom to look at another religious entity or BY DOUGLAS E. SCHOEN Special to the CitizenAs we approach summer in Washington, policymakers and pundits alike remain distracted by a host of scandals. The alleged targeting of conservative political groups by IRS officials, while relegated to Congressional hearings and calls for additional investigations (for now), will be red meat for candidates running in next years midterm elections. Recent revelations that the NSA has been monitoring phone calls only adds to the narrative that well likely see play out in the coming months: government, regardless of its reach, is increasingly misguided. However, it would be political malpractice to assume that fundamental issues Medicare, the economy, trade, etc. will take a backseat to todays scandals. As incumbent policymakers know well, taking ones eye off these fundamental issues (often at the expense of entire voting blocs) is often a recipe for failure. This is especially relevant for voters over 65, who are increasingly drifting to the Republican Party. Taking into account that nearly six in 10 seniors voted for Mitt Romney (up from half who voted for McCain 2008), its critical that Democrats right the ship before 2014. By all accounts, 2012 marked a period in which Democrats were inspired by a larger turnout of young and non-white voters. However, two years earlier, seniors comprised 23 percent of the vote (an increase from 16 percent in 2008). The youth vote in 2010 was only 11 percent, down from 18 percent in 2008. A fired up senior electorate can easily sway a close election. With this idea in mind, a key issue for Republicans and Democrats will be establishing a permanent trust on Medicare. Every American over 65 relies on the program in some way, and a large swath of Medicare participants have to deal with a chronic medical condition. Seniors are often afraid of losing their benefits and having programs they rely on cost more money or get cut altogether. Case in point is Medicare Part D, the popular prescription drug benefit. This is a program that has been a sterling success, in a time when confidence in government is reaching all-time lows. Part D is a rare example of a government program that has consistently cost less year after year than originally budgeted. To be specific, it has cost $348 billion less than original estimates. The Congressional Budget Office found every one percent increase in prescriptions filled results in a .20 percent decrease in spending on other Medicare services. Key take-away for seniors: what works in heath care is likely to be well received heading into next years election. While Obamacare continues to experience stagnant approval ratings (the latest polls continue to trend downward), its clear that seniors will gravitate toward public policies that meet their needs and help to address health care spending. For both Democrats and Republicans, the good news is that the senior vote is still gettable. However, a good portion of voters over 65 pay close attention to policy specifics, making it more important to ensure that both parties recognize this. Preserving programs that work, while prioritizing seniors long-term interests, will yield significant political dividends in 2014 and beyond. Neither side can afford losing them.Douglas Schoen is a political strategist and author of Hopelessly Divided: The New Crisis in American Politics and What it Means for 2012 and Beyond, published by Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.

All right, maybe it technically isnt City Hall, its the County Commission. But the feeling is the same for the Southwest Marion County residents fighting a rezoning plan that comes before the county next Tuesday. The plot of land east of Southwest 62nd Avenue Road, north of 103rd Street Road, is 51 acres, and a Miami developer is asking to have it zoned PUD (planned urban development) from R-1 (residential). The result would be the ability to put many more houses on the acreage, although under PUD zoning there are some safeguards requiring open space, public use, etc. The basic problem is the layout of the plot of land. It is almost entirely surrounded by other developments, most of which are R-1 areas, with little improved street access. And thats the major difficulty. There is a small development called Alejandria Estates, which comes off 103rd Street Road at 56th Avenue, heading north. It only goes a couple of blocks deep, then turns left, to the west, for a couple of blocks more, ending in a cul-de-sac at a platted but undeveloped road know as 57th Terrace Road (these are all Southwest roads, so well avoid repetition on the designations). There are some nice houses in that little development, and the residents there feel their quality of life could be drastically changed if 56th Avenue were extended north to provide access to the new development, or 57th Terrace Road were improved. To make matters a little worse, they say, an extended 57th Terrace Road would intersect 103rd directly adjacent to the newly improved Liberty Park, creating a traffic hazard that could involve children and school buses. In a move that we consider totally incompatible with the area (three of the zoning officials evidently disagree), this would not be a 55 and older development, leading to the possibility of families with school-age children and teen drivers. That only adds to the anxiety of the people in neighboring communities. The change didnt exactly breeze through the Zoning Commission. It was approved (or actually failed to be denied) on a 3-3 vote. The trouble with all these protests is that they may not accomplish anything. Even if the zoning change is denied, the R-1 zoning will continue and the project could go ahead with fewer houses. The developer, however, could still build the roads through Alejandria Estates, since the roads already exist on paper. The hearing is at the County Commission meeting Tuesday at 2 p.m. However, before that, there is a town meeting today, Friday, at 3:30 p.m. at the Freedom Public Library. The developer had agreed back in May to hold a town meeting, but it was just recently announced to the residents. Well keep following the story, and hope for the best for the residents. Unfortunately for them, however, they may find that fighting City Hall can be a daunting task. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

We have the freedom to preach what we believe and proselytize members from the ranks of other churches and religions. We should not harass other churches or religious entities. We can validate our point of view by utilizing persuasive language and religious documents. After this, the church, mosque, temple or whatever it is that sits across the street or down the road must be free to practice its religion. This is part of what makes America great. We need to keep it great. Amen for the first Amendment that guarantees the exercise of religion and forbids the state from establishing a religion. Can you imagine our government trying to run a church? We need to keep the wall of separation between the church and state as Roger Williams and Thomas Jefferson purported years ago. And, we need to always be alert to any movement in this country that would try to hinder the freedom of religion or any movement that tries to consolidate religion and church. Does this mean we cannot have prayer on government property or at a government function? The separation of religion and government does not mean the separation of God and nation. Our Christian heritage began with the Pilgrims and continued through our early leaders. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and our leaders between them, before them, and after them have been people of Christian prayers. This is what will eventually happen. Other religions are growing rapidly in this nation. They will want to say their prayers and espouse their teachings. They have the same legal rights as all Americans. The same is true of any religious entity. I do not have a problem with people praying and preaching at the courthouse or in front of the state capitol or in front of the White House. We have to note that when they are finished, someone with a different point of religious view may want to take the next turn. That is freedom in America. The day may come in America when there are more of another religious group than there are Christians. How will Christians feel if another group becomes dominant and then pushes reading their religious documents and praying prayers that do not include the name of Jesus? There is great privilege and opportunity in freedom of religion. When a group is in the religious minority it may not feel very good when the religious majority pushes them around. A praying America is a better and stronger America. Rejoice for religious freedom! Practice it freely, passionately, joyfully! Respect others. Be considerate. Listen to what others have to say. Have courteous exchanges of conversations. Postulate your position but realize those listening may want to postulate a reply. Thomas Jefferson passionately expresses the foundation of religious freedom and the separation of church and state on which our country has stood in his writing of The Virginia Act for Establishing Religious Freedom in 1786. As you study religious freedom and separation of church and state you will enjoy reading his passionate statement. MOLLETTECONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTER TO THE EDITOR God founded AmericaThere is a great deal of material on the founding fathers. The more I read the more admiration I have for their genius, their persistence, their fortitude, dedication, and sacrifice. They were exceptional humans. Even more so than any saints I am acquainted with. They left no stone unturned and researched governments all the way back to Cicero. There were two free societies, prior to ours. Moses led one, and the Anglo-Saxons the other. The founders were determined not to repeat any of the mistakes made by those two societies, to correct all the deficiencies. With the many perspectives involved, among the founders, they were able to see the down sides of every issue, and tried to put protections in to subvert any who would try to take over the government by any means. There are ways to stop a takeover, but none of our current elected officials seem inclined to do anything. Among all the founders, the man who stood, and still stands out as a star is George Washington. Even as a child I learned how hard things were for Washington. And though I have read much about him since, it took the reading of this book to put him in total perspective for me. The book, The Making of America by W. Cleon Skousen, covers his campaigns, and battles in more depth than anything I have ever read. I saw something in this book that made me see Washington, was a person truly watched over, guided, and protected by God, put on earth to serve His purpose. There is no human who could have endured, and survived, what Washington did without divine intervention. God wanted this nation founded, and Washington was His tool. Washington had four bullet holes in his coat, and two horses shot from under him, yet he remained unscathed, PLEASESEELETTER, PAGE25 Today is Cow Appreciation Day, an unofficial yet nationally recognized holiday founded by a fastfood business that uses cows to proclaim, Eat mor chikin. Naturally, to celebrate this holiday, our travel down Pun Alley takes us out to the boondocks for tales about cows, farmers, cowboys and country life.RomanticThe sun was dropping behind the horizon. The moon was beginning to rise. All was quiet on the farm, and the gentle breeze hinted at romance. The farm boy and the pretty girl from the next farm strolled hand in hand through the pasture. They stopped to watch the calf and its mother rubbing noses. Id like to be doing that, said the farmer boy wistfully. Well, its your cow, said the young lady. Nevertheless, they eventually got married. Instead of lighting a unity candle at the ceremony, they each poured a little cream from their respective dairies into the same bowl. They were cream-mated.Country aromaWhat is that strange odor coming from the fields? the lady from Orlando asked the farmer. Thats fertilizer, said the farmer. Oh for lands sake! exclaimed the lady. Yes, thats right, replied the farmer.Well, wellBack in the days when doctors made house calls, the rural doctor drove to the farm to check on the farmers wife. Upon arriving he felt thirsty and went to the well to bring up some cool water, but slipped and fell in. The moral is that a doctor should take care of the sick and leave the well alone.Burned upA farmers barn burned down, and the agent for the insurance company, explaining the policy that covered the structure, told him that his firm would build another barn of similar size instead of paying the claim in cash. The farmer was furious. If thats the way your company does business, he exploded, you can just cancel the insurance policy on my wife.Cow talesCarrying a milk pail as the farmer approached a cow, he said, Well, Bessie, what will it be, milk or hamburger? When the cow jumped over the barbed wire fence it was an udder catastrophe. At the supper table, one child asked, Why is cream so much more expensive than milk? Its obvious, replied another. Its harder for the cow to sit on the little container. The bowlegged cowboy was fired because he couldnt keep his calves together. Visitor: Wow, you have a lot of flies buzzing round your horses and cows. Do you ever shoo them? Cowboy: No we just let them go barefoot.

Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com All through my life, I have been awkward when talking to someone of the opposite gender. I had thought by the time I got to this stage of life, post-young, I would have left a lot of this behind. Just when I think I have a good handle on this situation, something happens setting me back at least two generations. I was doing fine until I heard a news report giving information that the word freshman was no longer a politically correct word to use when speaking of college students. They are now referred to as First-Year Students. According to this report, the word freshman is offensive to women. How and why it is offensive, they never did say but being in a politically correct world this word may no longer be used. This is where my confusion comes in. Where are these individuals offended by the word freshman? I wish they would come and explain to me how this word offends them. This word has been used for generation after generation and this is the first time it is hurting certain individuals. I brought this to the attention of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage to see if maybe she could shed a little bit of light on the situation. Unfortunately, she was as much in the dark about this as I was. I try to keep up with the latest trends and I must say that I am around 18 years behind my schedule. So, I am trying to retain a wee bit of sanity in this politically correct world around me. Frankly, I do not know why anybody wants to be politically correct. Being the sensitive kind of person that I am, I am going to give it the old college try. I sat down with my wife and we began to figure out how that I, a very sensitive and politically correct person, could address somebody of the opposite gender. I guess I can still call them women, I said with a degree of certainty in my voice. My wife looked at me and slowly shook her head. Im afraid that the word women, is offensive to some of these politically correct individuals because the word ends in men, which is a masculine gender. I looked at her and scratched my head vigorously. It also applies, she continued, with the word woman because it also ends with the masculine man. I never really gave this much thought before. It never occurred to me that the last three letters of a word could be offensive to someone to the point that they are offended by that word. So, I said rather thoughtfully rubbing my chin, I will have to begin calling those individuals females. I smiled and thought I had come up with a solution. I looked at my wife to get her approval. Shaking her head, she said, That word is not acceptable anymore, either. If you look at the word, you will find that it ends in the word male, and as you know that is masculine. I am really getting bogged down with all of this political correctness nonsense. How people can be so sensitive to be upset by a word. My father used to say, Sticks and stones may break my bones (but words will never hurt me). Well, I said in a little bit of desperation, I guess Ill just have to call them lady. Not so fast, she said looking at me. How do you spell lady? The first three letters spell the word lad, and everybody knows a lad is a boy. It has been a long time since I have been this frustrated. For the life of me I do not intend to offend anybody if it all possible. I am just getting to the point where I am not sure it is going to be possible not to offend persons of the opposite gender. I finally came up with the word I thought would solve all my political correctness dilemma. And I threw it at her. I will just call them a person. I was proud of my accomplishment. Someone, no names will be mentioned, laughed hysterically at me while shaking her head. Buster, she said, you still dont get it, do you? The word person ends with the word son and everybody knows a son is a male child. I cannot call them women or woman or female or lady or person because somewhere in those words someone sees something masculine. I know what Ill do, I said to my wife with a smile dancing across my face, Trying to keep my sanity in a politically correct world Out to Pastor Rev.

Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com whenever I see someone of the opposite gender I will shout out loud and clear Hey, you. I think youre getting worse as you go along here, she said. You do know what the word hey begins with? I thought for a moment, sadly shaking my head, I looked at her and said, He? I will never arrive at any degree of political correctness, at least during my lifetime. And, I will never understand any one of the opposite gender, whatever you call them. I do take a little consolation in Gods Word. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee (Psalm 119:11 KJV). I do not have to be politically correct when I come to God because His Word is final.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

On another note, we wish to inform everyone that our August gathering will be cancelled for the summer since many members will be away. We will pause until October when we will have our next activity. An announcement will be made through our flyer as to what we will be planning for that month. We wish to also mention that the club had a Fun in the Sun trip to the Victory Casino cruise ship on May 20. John Casabianca and Andy Alloro and over 100 members and friends enjoyed playing the slots, roulette, blackjack and poker while enjoying free cocktails and entertainment. Also, the June 12 gathering brought us A Night at the Races with entertainment enjoyed by all!Applique Group Our Appliqu group meets at the Island club on the 3rd Monday of every month from 1 to 3 p.m. We are now an open group for all levels of appliqu to any one living in Oak Run.

We have no dues, no president just a love for what we do. You can just show up and meet the ladies. Oak Run TravelFor those with gaming on their mind dont forget our added trip to the casinos coming up in November. Our 2nd midweek getaway is on Nov. 6 and 7. The trip includes the Seminole Casino, Immokalee, the first day. We will overnight at the Holiday Inn, have a cheese and wine reception, enjoy dinner and the show 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 in prior weeks when we get to the bus. Call Connie Smith for details and a place on the bus. Anybody interested in a golf outing? We have a two-day trip planned for May 2014 but we would like to know where you golfers would like to go so we can plan future outings. It could be a one day trip close enough to get to and return while still getting in a round of golf. Or maybe you would like to take a multi-day trip for 2, 3 or more days. Do you want some non-golfing activities or just strictly golf, a place to stay and a nice dinner? Do you have a specific location in mind? Would you even consider a very special trip to an exotic or famous course, even by air? Let us know.

Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com This years Veterans Appreciation Day, sponsored by the Cherrywood Veterans Club, was the biggest ever with over 150 people attending including special guests Norman Straus and from the Ritz House in Ocala, resident manager Al Morrison. Club officers under the direction of President Bill Mahar formed the Honor Guard presenting the flags. Joe Gignac carried the American Flag; Marty Duesel carried the POW/MIA flag while Rich Hurley and John Everlove were rifle bearers. Following the National Anthem, Skip Smith led everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance. Skips long road back from illness over the past year and a half made this a special moment for all the members of the Veterans Club. Vietnam War veteran Martin Duesel rendered special honors to the POW/MIAs. Marty solemnly carried the black and white POW/MIA flag to its place of honor beside the special table set aside for POW/MIAs. In the background, the song Going Home was softly played as Marty bowed his head for a moment of silence. President Mahar called attention to the 83,000 missing Americans who have not been repatriated from World War II through the current War on Terror. He concluded his remarks with the words, we will never forget. Dismissing the officers to their places at the head of each table, President Mahar joined all of the officers and guests by raising a toast to not only our POW/MIAs but also to say thank you to all who served our country and their families.. After the welcoming of guests and the opening ceremonies, an uninvited guest showed up. Many of you know him as Murphy of Murphys Law fame. That law states that anything that can go wrong, will. Because of technical problems with the grill, dinner was delayed about a half an hour. Normally, you dont want to give senior citizens knives and forks and then tell them dinner will be late but Kenny Jackson, our Deejay for the evening just picked up the pace. Thanks to him the dance started a little early and between the music; the dancing and the jokes, no one seemed to mind the wait. In the end, they were rewarded with a delicious meal. Veterans thanked at Cherrywood The Cherrywood Color Guard. Taste Budz Barbecue put out mouth watering ribs and chicken with baked beans made from a special recipe and home made potato salad. Not only was the quality top notch but the quantity insured that no one would leave hungry. Between the fantastic food and Ken Jacksons entertainment, everyone had not only a great meal, but a wonderful evening too. Every dance was played from the YMCA to the Chicken Dance; which seemed pretty appropriate considering the menu. Of course with Kennys vast repertoire of music there was fast beat rock and roll; favorite country western and soft big band sounds also. In the end, many people commented on the entire evenings events saying that this was the best Veterans Appreciation dinner to date. The Veterans Club would like to express their deep appreciation to Taste Budz; to Kenny Jackson and most importantly to our Cherrywood residents for their participation and support of this years event Cherrywood John Everlove PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 FAMILY FEA TURES Flavors from sout h of the border are al ways a crowd favorite.

Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com This years Veterans Appreciation Day, sponsored by the Cherrywood Veterans Club, was the biggest ever with over 150 people attending including special guests Norman Straus and from the Ritz House in Ocala, resident manager Al Morrison. Club officers under the direction of President Bill Mahar formed the Honor Guard presenting the flags. Joe Gignac carried the American Flag; Marty Duesel carried the POW/MIA flag while Rich Hurley and John Everlove were rifle bearers. Following the National Anthem, Skip Smith led everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance. Skips long road back from illness over the past year and a half made this a special moment for all the members of the Veterans Club. Vietnam War veteran Martin Duesel rendered special honors to the POW/MIAs. Marty solemnly carried the black and white POW/MIA flag to its place of honor beside the special table set aside for POW/MIAs. In the background, the song Going Home was softly played as Marty bowed his head for a moment of silence. President Mahar called attention to the 83,000 missing Americans who have not been repatriated from World War II through the current War on Terror. He concluded his remarks with the words, we will never forget. Dismissing the officers to their places at the head of each table, President Mahar joined all of the officers and guests by raising a toast to not only our POW/MIAs but also to say thank you to all who served our country and their families.. After the welcoming of guests and the opening ceremonies, an uninvited guest showed up. Many of you know him as Murphy of Murphys Law fame. That law states that anything that can go wrong, will. Because of technical problems with the grill, dinner was delayed about a half an hour. Normally, you dont want to give senior citizens knives and forks and then tell them dinner will be late but Kenny Jackson, our Deejay for the evening just picked up the pace. Thanks to him the dance started a little early and between the music; the dancing and the jokes, no one seemed to mind the wait. In the end, they were rewarded with a delicious meal. Veterans thanked at Cherrywood The Cherrywood Color Guard. Taste Budz Barbecue put out mouth watering ribs and chicken with baked beans made from a special recipe and home made potato salad. Not only was the quality top notch but the quantity insured that no one would leave hungry. Between the fantastic food and Ken Jacksons entertainment, everyone had not only a great meal, but a wonderful evening too. Every dance was played from the YMCA to the Chicken Dance; which seemed pretty appropriate considering the menu. Of course with Kennys vast repertoire of music there was fast beat rock and roll; favorite country western and soft big band sounds also. In the end, many people commented on the entire evenings events saying that this was the best Veterans Appreciation dinner to date. The Veterans Club would like to express their deep appreciation to Taste Budz; to Kenny Jackson and most importantly to our Cherrywood residents for their participation and support of this years event Cherrywood John Everlove PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 FAMILY FEA TURES Flavors from sout h of the border are al ways a crowd favorite.

Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com whenever I see someone of the opposite gender I will shout out loud and clear Hey, you. I think youre getting worse as you go along here, she said. You do know what the word hey begins with? I thought for a moment, sadly shaking my head, I looked at her and said, He? I will never arrive at any degree of political correctness, at least during my lifetime. And, I will never understand any one of the opposite gender, whatever you call them. I do take a little consolation in Gods Word. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee (Psalm 119:11 KJV). I do not have to be politically correct when I come to God because His Word is final.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

We wish him and his wife Ellie the best! In the meantime, Andy Alloro who is 1st vice president, will assume the position of president. On another note, we wish to inform everyone that our August gathering will be cancelled for the summer since many members will be away. We will pause until October when we will have our next activity. An announcement will be made through our flyer as to what we will be planning for that month. We wish to also mention that the club had a Fun in the Sun trip to the Victory Casino cruise ship on May 20. John Casabianca and Andy Alloro and over 100 members and friends enjoyed playing the slots, roulette, blackjack and poker while enjoying free cocktails and entertainment. Also, the June 12 gathering brought us A Night at the Races with entertainment enjoyed by all!Applique Group Our Appliqu group meets at the Island club on the 3rd Monday of every month from 1 to 3 p.m. We are now an open group for all levels of appliqu to any one living in Oak Run. We invite you to join us in fun and fellowship. We hope to be able to share our knowledge of technique and patterns. If you like to hand sew and do embroidery this may be a group for you. We have no dues, no president just a love for what we do. You can just show up and meet the ladies. Oak Run TravelFor those with gaming on their mind dont forget our added trip to the casinos coming up in November. Our 2nd midweek getaway is on Nov. 6 and 7. The trip includes the Seminole Casino, Immokalee, the first day. We will overnight at the Holiday Inn, have a cheese and wine reception, enjoy dinner and the show 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 in prior weeks when we get to the bus. Call Connie Smith for details and a place on the bus. Anybody interested in a golf outing? We have a two-day trip planned for May 2014 but we would like to know where you golfers would like to go so we can plan future outings. It could be a one day trip close enough to get to and return while still getting in a round of golf. Or maybe you would like to take a multi-day trip for 2, 3 or more days. Do you want some non-golfing activities or just strictly golf, a place to stay and a nice dinner? Do you have a specific location in mind?

Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com All through my life, I have been awkward when talking to someone of the opposite gender. I had thought by the time I got to this stage of life, post-young, I would have left a lot of this behind. Just when I think I have a good handle on this situation, something happens setting me back at least two generations. I was doing fine until I heard a news report giving information that the word freshman was no longer a politically correct word to use when speaking of college students. They are now referred to as First-Year Students. According to this report, the word freshman is offensive to women. How and why it is offensive, they never did say but being in a politically correct world this word may no longer be used. This is where my confusion comes in. Where are these individuals offended by the word freshman? I wish they would come and explain to me how this word offends them. This word has been used for generation after generation and this is the first time it is hurting certain individuals. I brought this to the attention of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage to see if maybe she could shed a little bit of light on the situation. Unfortunately, she was as much in the dark about this as I was. I try to keep up with the latest trends and I must say that I am around 18 years behind my schedule. So, I am trying to retain a wee bit of sanity in this politically correct world around me. Frankly, I do not know why anybody wants to be politically correct. Being the sensitive kind of person that I am, I am going to give it the old college try. I sat down with my wife and we began to figure out how that I, a very sensitive and politically correct person, could address somebody of the opposite gender. I guess I can still call them women, I said with a degree of certainty in my voice. My wife looked at me and slowly shook her head. Im afraid that the word women, is offensive to some of these politically correct individuals because the word ends in men, which is a masculine gender. I looked at her and scratched my head vigorously. It also applies, she continued, with the word woman because it also ends with the masculine man. I never really gave this much thought before. It never occurred to me that the last three letters of a word could be offensive to someone to the point that they are offended by that word. So, I said rather thoughtfully rubbing my chin, I will have to begin calling those individuals females. I smiled and thought I had come up with a solution. I looked at my wife to get her approval. Shaking her head, she said, That word is not acceptable anymore, either. If you look at the word, you will find that it ends in the word male, and as you know that is masculine. I am really getting bogged down with all of this political correctness nonsense. How people can be so sensitive to be upset by a word. My father used to say, Sticks and stones may break my bones (but words will never hurt me). Well, I said in a little bit of desperation, I guess Ill just have to call them lady. Not so fast, she said looking at me. How do you spell lady? The first three letters spell the word lad, and everybody knows a lad is a boy. It has been a long time since I have been this frustrated. For the life of me I do not intend to offend anybody if it all possible. I am just getting to the point where I am not sure it is going to be possible not to offend persons of the opposite gender. I finally came up with the word I thought would solve all my political correctness dilemma. And I threw it at her. I will just call them a person. I was proud of my accomplishment. Someone, no names will be mentioned, laughed hysterically at me while shaking her head. Buster, she said, you still dont get it, do you? The word person ends with the word son and everybody knows a son is a male child. I cannot call them women or woman or female or lady or person because somewhere in those words someone sees something masculine. I know what Ill do, I said to my wife with a smile dancing across my face, Trying to keep my sanity in a politically correct world Out to Pastor Rev.

Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING church and disagree with what they say and teach as long as it is in a civil manner. We have the freedom to preach what we believe and proselytize members from the ranks of other churches and religions. We should not harass other churches or religious entities. We can validate our point of view by utilizing persuasive language and religious documents. After this, the church, mosque, temple or whatever it is that sits across the street or down the road must be free to practice its religion. This is part of what makes America great. We need to keep it great. Amen for the first Amendment that guarantees the exercise of religion and forbids the state from establishing a religion. Can you imagine our government trying to run a church? We need to keep the wall of separation between the church and state as Roger Williams and Thomas Jefferson purported years ago. And, we need to always be alert to any movement in this country that would try to hinder the freedom of religion or any movement that tries to consolidate religion and church. Does this mean we cannot have prayer on government property or at a government function? The separation of religion and government does not mean the separation of God and nation. Our Christian heritage began with the Pilgrims and continued through our early leaders. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and our leaders between them, before them, and after them have been people of Christian prayers. This is what will eventually happen. Other religions are growing rapidly in this nation. They will want to say their prayers and espouse their teachings. They have the same legal rights as all Americans. The same is true of any religious entity. I do not have a problem with people praying and preaching at the courthouse or in front of the state capitol or in front of the White House. We have to note that when they are finished, someone with a different point of religious view may want to take the next turn. That is freedom in America. The day may come in America when there are more of another religious group than there are Christians. How will Christians feel if another group becomes dominant and then pushes reading their religious documents and praying prayers that do not include the name of Jesus? There is great privilege and opportunity in freedom of religion. When a group is in the religious minority it may not feel very good when the religious majority pushes them around. A praying America is a better and stronger America. Rejoice for religious freedom! Practice it freely, passionately, joyfully! Respect others. Be considerate. Listen to what others have to say. Have courteous exchanges of conversations. Postulate your position but realize those listening may want to postulate a reply. Thomas Jefferson passionately expresses the foundation of religious freedom and the separation of church and state on which our country has stood in his writing of The Virginia Act for Establishing Religious Freedom in 1786. As you study religious freedom and separation of church and state you will enjoy reading his passionate statement. MOLLETTECONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTER TO THE EDITOR God founded AmericaThere is a great deal of material on the founding fathers. The more I read the more admiration I have for their genius, their persistence, their fortitude, dedication, and sacrifice. They were exceptional humans. Even more so than any saints I am acquainted with. They left no stone unturned and researched governments all the way back to Cicero. There were two free societies, prior to ours. Moses led one, and the Anglo-Saxons the other. The founders were determined not to repeat any of the mistakes made by those two societies, to correct all the deficiencies. With the many perspectives involved, among the founders, they were able to see the down sides of every issue, and tried to put protections in to subvert any who would try to take over the government by any means. There are ways to stop a takeover, but none of our current elected officials seem inclined to do anything. Among all the founders, the man who stood, and still stands out as a star is George Washington. Even as a child I learned how hard things were for Washington. And though I have read much about him since, it took the reading of this book to put him in total perspective for me. The book, The Making of America by W. Cleon Skousen, covers his campaigns, and battles in more depth than anything I have ever read. I saw something in this book that made me see Washington, was a person truly watched over, guided, and protected by God, put on earth to serve His purpose. There is no human who could have endured, and survived, what Washington did without divine intervention. God wanted this nation founded, and Washington was His tool. Washington had four bullet holes in his coat, and two horses shot from under him, yet he remained unscathed, PLEASESEELETTER, PAGE25 Today is Cow Appreciation Day, an unofficial yet nationally recognized holiday founded by a fastfood business that uses cows to proclaim, Eat mor chikin. Naturally, to celebrate this holiday, our travel down Pun Alley takes us out to the boondocks for tales about cows, farmers, cowboys and country life.RomanticThe sun was dropping behind the horizon. The moon was beginning to rise. All was quiet on the farm, and the gentle breeze hinted at romance. The farm boy and the pretty girl from the next farm strolled hand in hand through the pasture. They stopped to watch the calf and its mother rubbing noses. Id like to be doing that, said the farmer boy wistfully. Well, its your cow, said the young lady. Nevertheless, they eventually got married. Instead of lighting a unity candle at the ceremony, they each poured a little cream from their respective dairies into the same bowl. They were cream-mated.Country aromaWhat is that strange odor coming from the fields? the lady from Orlando asked the farmer. Thats fertilizer, said the farmer. Oh for lands sake! exclaimed the lady. Yes, thats right, replied the farmer.Well, wellBack in the days when doctors made house calls, the rural doctor drove to the farm to check on the farmers wife. Upon arriving he felt thirsty and went to the well to bring up some cool water, but slipped and fell in. The moral is that a doctor should take care of the sick and leave the well alone.Burned upA farmers barn burned down, and the agent for the insurance company, explaining the policy that covered the structure, told him that his firm would build another barn of similar size instead of paying the claim in cash. The farmer was furious. If thats the way your company does business, he exploded, you can just cancel the insurance policy on my wife.Cow talesCarrying a milk pail as the farmer approached a cow, he said, Well, Bessie, what will it be, milk or hamburger? When the cow jumped over the barbed wire fence it was an udder catastrophe. At the supper table, one child asked, Why is cream so much more expensive than milk? Its obvious, replied another. Its harder for the cow to sit on the little container. The bowlegged cowboy was fired because he couldnt keep his calves together. Visitor: Wow, you have a lot of flies buzzing round your horses and cows. Do you ever shoo them? Cowboy: No we just let them go barefoot.

Some of our musicians are just starting out and you will be amazed at the progress they make from one month to the next. Other players are long time hobbyists who play for the shear joy of creating and sharing their musical talent with others. You can sense their dedication and enjoyment just by watching the smile on their faces and the energy they put into their work. Lastly, we have a score or more of professionals who although retired, still have that show biz pizzazz and style that tells you youre listening to the best. Many of these musicians have shared the stage with top name stars in places like Las Vegas and New York. One of the best things about Accordion Club night at Cherrywood is that the admission is free.

It began on Thursday when Sarah and Frank Blair hosted a wonderful cook out at their home. The huge array of food was delicious and the company was terrific. I was able to spend some quality social time with friends from the cribbage club as well as make new acquaintances. Like millions of other Americans, I ate too much as I sat under the patriotic decorations enjoying friends, freedom and good times. Then on Saturday, I was honored to participate in the Veterans Appreciation Dinner sponsored by the Veterans Club of Cherrywood. It was a special evening because Skip Smith gave the Pledge of Allegiance; something that we, his friends, thought would never happen. His voice was strong, clear and proud. I also shared a special experience with another friend; Marty Duesel. Marty carried the POW/MIA flag in our color guard and was part of a special ceremony remembering those who have not returned. During an ambush in Vietnam, one of Martys friends was hit. Because of the intense fire fight, no one was able to get to him and so he remains Missing in Action. On this Fourth of July weekend I was able to enjoy good times as we celebrated Americas birthday and in addition; I had the honor and privilege of standing among heroes. It doesnt get any better than that. If you have ideas, comments or suggestions about the Cherrywood column in your Citizen, please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Im always happy to hear from you, the reader. Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 12, 2013 BY GLENN MOLLETTE Special to the CitizenWeve seen religious fighting too often on television. From Egypt weve heard about the power of the Muslim brotherhood and from Afghanistan the fighting between the Sunnis and Shias. We have enough problems in our country and the average American is not interested in religious violence. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution states that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ... Article VI specifies that no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States. I do not know of any church or religious entity that wants to change our heritage of separation of church and state. Initially stated by Roger Williams who founded the first Baptist Church in America and then restated by Thomas Jefferson in a January 1, 1802 letter he wrote to the Danbury Baptist Association in Connecticut, Williams-had written in 1644 of [A] hedge or wall of separation between the garden of the church and the wilderness of the worldJefferson wrote, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between Church & State. When we speak of religious freedom we mean the right granted legally to individuals to practice and preach religion. It also means not being persecuted for holding any form of religious beliefs. Our forefathers came to America to distance them selves from a religion run and oppressed by the government. As long as religion is not doing anything illegal or does not hurt the citizens of a country, then it should be free to practice its beliefs. Our nation is host to a multitude of religious opinions and groups. Each entity should enjoy the religious freedom that America offers. America is a land where we have the freedom to have religious convictions and the freedom to preach and practice our convictions. America must remain a place where religions are free to come and practice their religion. I am a Christian, so Im not very excited to see the explosion of other religions throughout our country. It is said that the general overall Christian population has become lackadaisical or lukewarm. This attitude is evidenced by a lack of church attendance and church buildings that have few people attending. Some churches have gone out of business and sold their buildings. For years, America has declared itself as a Christian nation with a Christian founding. Christianity has flourished in America because we have had the freedom to do so. Christianity has the freedom to continue to flourish if it chooses to do so. No one in America is standing in the way of Christian progress. The only group that hurts Christianity is the Christians. Christianity has the freedom to wake up or die a slow death. America is a land of the exercise of free religion. We should not begrudge other religions that become passionate and flourish in their work. We may not agree with their beliefs and what they are propagating but this is America. As long as religion does not violate the law, it should be welcomed in America. Ive been around strong religious opinions all my life. When I was child I would hear my grandparents and my parents declare their feelings about different religious ideas. Ive been around church denominations that felt as if they had it 100 percent right. Some religious denominations think they are the only ones going to heaven. As a young minister there were plenty of days when I ignorantly thought that some of the other Christian denominations had it all wrong. Actually, in my opinion some of them do have some of it wrong. The beauty of America is that we enjoy the freedom to look at another religious entity or BY DOUGLAS E. SCHOEN Special to the CitizenAs we approach summer in Washington, policymakers and pundits alike remain distracted by a host of scandals. The alleged targeting of conservative political groups by IRS officials, while relegated to Congressional hearings and calls for additional investigations (for now), will be red meat for candidates running in next years midterm elections. Recent revelations that the NSA has been monitoring phone calls only adds to the narrative that well likely see play out in the coming months: government, regardless of its reach, is increasingly misguided. However, it would be political malpractice to assume that fundamental issues Medicare, the economy, trade, etc. will take a backseat to todays scandals. As incumbent policymakers know well, taking ones eye off these fundamental issues (often at the expense of entire voting blocs) is often a recipe for failure. This is especially relevant for voters over 65, who are increasingly drifting to the Republican Party. Taking into account that nearly six in 10 seniors voted for Mitt Romney (up from half who voted for McCain 2008), its critical that Democrats right the ship before 2014. By all accounts, 2012 marked a period in which Democrats were inspired by a larger turnout of young and non-white voters. However, two years earlier, seniors comprised 23 percent of the vote (an increase from 16 percent in 2008). The youth vote in 2010 was only 11 percent, down from 18 percent in 2008. A fired up senior electorate can easily sway a close election. With this idea in mind, a key issue for Republicans and Democrats will be establishing a permanent trust on Medicare. Every American over 65 relies on the program in some way, and a large swath of Medicare participants have to deal with a chronic medical condition. Seniors are often afraid of losing their benefits and having programs they rely on cost more money or get cut altogether. Case in point is Medicare Part D, the popular prescription drug benefit. This is a program that has been a sterling success, in a time when confidence in government is reaching all-time lows. Part D is a rare example of a government program that has consistently cost less year after year than originally budgeted. To be specific, it has cost $348 billion less than original estimates. The Congressional Budget Office found every one percent increase in prescriptions filled results in a .20 percent decrease in spending on other Medicare services. Key take-away for seniors: what works in heath care is likely to be well received heading into next years election. While Obamacare continues to experience stagnant approval ratings (the latest polls continue to trend downward), its clear that seniors will gravitate toward public policies that meet their needs and help to address health care spending. For both Democrats and Republicans, the good news is that the senior vote is still gettable. However, a good portion of voters over 65 pay close attention to policy specifics, making it more important to ensure that both parties recognize this. Preserving programs that work, while prioritizing seniors long-term interests, will yield significant political dividends in 2014 and beyond. Neither side can afford losing them.Douglas Schoen is a political strategist and author of Hopelessly Divided: The New Crisis in American Politics and What it Means for 2012 and Beyond, published by Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.

All right, maybe it technically isnt City Hall, its the County Commission. But the feeling is the same for the Southwest Marion County residents fighting a rezoning plan that comes before the county next Tuesday. The plot of land east of Southwest 62nd Avenue Road, north of 103rd Street Road, is 51 acres, and a Miami developer is asking to have it zoned PUD (planned urban development) from R-1 (residential). The result would be the ability to put many more houses on the acreage, although under PUD zoning there are some safeguards requiring open space, public use, etc. The basic problem is the layout of the plot of land. It is almost entirely surrounded by other developments, most of which are R-1 areas, with little improved street access. And thats the major difficulty. There is a small development called Alejandria Estates, which comes off 103rd Street Road at 56th Avenue, heading north. It only goes a couple of blocks deep, then turns left, to the west, for a couple of blocks more, ending in a cul-de-sac at a platted but undeveloped road know as 57th Terrace Road (these are all Southwest roads, so well avoid repetition on the designations). There are some nice houses in that little development, and the residents there feel their quality of life could be drastically changed if 56th Avenue were extended north to provide access to the new development, or 57th Terrace Road were improved. To make matters a little worse, they say, an extended 57th Terrace Road would intersect 103rd directly adjacent to the newly improved Liberty Park, creating a traffic hazard that could involve children and school buses. In a move that we consider totally incompatible with the area (three of the zoning officials evidently disagree), this would not be a 55 and older development, leading to the possibility of families with school-age children and teen drivers. That only adds to the anxiety of the people in neighboring communities. The change didnt exactly breeze through the Zoning Commission. It was approved (or actually failed to be denied) on a 3-3 vote. The trouble with all these protests is that they may not accomplish anything. Even if the zoning change is denied, the R-1 zoning will continue and the project could go ahead with fewer houses. The developer, however, could still build the roads through Alejandria Estates, since the roads already exist on paper. The hearing is at the County Commission meeting Tuesday at 2 p.m. However, before that, there is a town meeting today, Friday, at 3:30 p.m. at the Freedom Public Library. The developer had agreed back in May to hold a town meeting, but it was just recently announced to the residents. Well keep following the story, and hope for the best for the residents. Unfortunately for them, however, they may find that fighting City Hall can be a daunting task. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your persistence pays off as the information you demanded starts to come through. The pace is slow at first, but it begins to speed up as the week draws to a close. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) An unwelcome bit of news jolts the Bovine, who would prefer that things proceed smoothly. But its at most a momentary setback. A Leo brings more welcome tidings. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You need to pay close attention to the details before making a commitment. Dont accept anything that seems questionable, unless you get an answer that can be backed up. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Congratulations on getting that project up and running. But as exciting as it is, dont let it carry you away. Make sure you set aside time to spend with family and friends. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Be sure youre part of the discussion involving your suggestions. Your presence ensures that you can defend your work, if necessary. It also helps gain your colleagues support. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A misunderstanding needs to be dealt with, or it can grow and cause more problems later on. Be the bigger person and take the first step to clear the air. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Set some strict guidelines for yourself so your heavier-than-usual work schedule doesnt overwhelm the time you need to spend relaxing with loved ones. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might feel a little uncomfortable being among people you hardly know. But remember that todays strangers can become tomorrows valuable contacts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Reward yourself for all that youve accomplished despite some annoying situations that got in your way. Enjoy a well-earned getaway with someone special. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Realizing that someone else is taking credit for what you did is bound to get anyones goat, but especially yours. Be patient. The truth soon comes out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Forget about opposites attracting. What you need is to find someone who thinks like you and will support your ideas, even if others say theyre too radical. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Workplace problems can affect your financial plans. Be prudent and avoid making commitments until things begin to ease up by the 26th. BORN THIS WEEK: Your intuition helps you communicate easily with people and understand their needs. two years old, but when he was neutered the vet thought that he was much younger. So at this time Buddy is about eight months old, which makes him an older puppy. Since many of you want a puppy, perhaps you will consider Buddy now. He is also a unique looking little fellow with milk chocolate eyes and a chocolate brown face. His fluffy tail is curled over his back as if he has some spitz in him, and his face and ears are Chihuahua-like. His overall impression and demeanor is like a terrier, so were calling him a terrier mix, but who knows? Like most terriers, hes very playful, smart and funny. Hell take his favorite toys out so the two of you can play together, and he hasnt met a throw toy he doesnt like. At 15 pounds, Buddy is a great size for most households, and even if he grows a bit more, he wont get much bigger. Hes not yappy, gets along with both cats and dogs, loves his walks and doesnt pull on the leash. Hes housetrained, in excellent health, current on all shots and neutered. If a lively terrier type cant tire you out, then Buddys the boy for you. Please call the SPCA at 352-362-0985 to meet Buddy and gain a new friend. The delightful Daisy is our other wonderful dog. Shes about 5 years old and looks like a dachshund/beagle cross so were calling her a hound mix. Shes fully grown at 25 pounds, which is also a very manageable sized dog for just about anyone. Although she can also fit into many households, she would be perfect for a senior person or couple. Shes very sweet and gentle, doesnt need to constantly play she will be happy to cuddle in your arms while you watch TV or lie near you while youre puttering around the house. Shell always let you know when its time to do her business, so you wont have to clean up accidents. Although shes quiet, she will bark to alert you if someone is coming by the house. 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. Daisy is really an easy dog to care for. She has been socialized to other dogs and cats while in foster care, so if theyre not rowdy or aggressive, she should be fine with them. 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 little lady. For you cat lovers out there, Arlene still has cats available. Last month we showed you a current picture of tuxedo cats Panda and Coco at a year old. If you would like to adopt a pair of cats, Panda and Coco would be perfect for you because they are best friends and love to be together. They will entertain themselves when youre busy or out of the house, so theyre easy cats to care for. If you can only adopt one cat, Ebony and Smokey are available these cuties are pictured here. They are neutered, have all their shots including rabies, and are microchipped. Arlene has socialized them for the past seven months so they will make wonderful pets. Many people who have adopted a cat from Arlene have called or written to tell us how easily the cats or kittens have assimilated into their households. Please give her a call at 352-875-9761 to meet one or all of these kitties.Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, July 18, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. We always welcome new members, or for you to come as a guest to see what we do. This is a good time to come to one of our meetings if your other activities have stopped for the summer. Please give us a call at 352362-0985 if you would like more information about our meetings or have any other questions for us. The SPCA still needs your help with dog and cat food donations. We are in desperate need of dog and cat food for the Pets on Wheels program. Right now, we especially need dog kibble, although all food is welcome. SPCA members 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, as well as 3 ounce cans of cat food such as Fancy Feast. 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. We have never been this low on food since we began working with the program, and 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 extremely grateful for your generosity.

Sociology grad student Jamal Jackson is driving a 20-seat white Hummer on New Years Eve in frigid Minneapolis when his noisy, intoxicated passengers distract him for a second just long enough for him to plow into the vehicle ahead. Now his attention was laser focused on what was right in front of him: a tableau from a horror movie illuminated by harsh white xenon headlights. A woman popped up in the trunk of the car like a freak-show jack-in-the-box. Jamal shrieked at the sight as the woman flipped out of the trunk, hit the pavement, and came upright directly in front of him. The womans face had melted away and she was covered in blood. Jamal would have nightmares about the scene for years to come. So unidentifiable was the female corpse that police dubbed her Zombie Doe. Enter homicide detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska whose task it was to discover the identity of the young woman and the person or persons who hated her enough to destroy her in such a grisly manner. Kovac admits that he had seen more dead bodies than he could count. Men, women, children; victims of shootings, stabbings, strangulations, beatings; fresh corpses and bodies that had been left in trunks of cars or in the dead of summer. But he had never seen anything quite like this. As the ninth Jane Doe in a year surfaces, police had to consider a serial killer. The problem, though, was that Zombies injuries did not match those of the other victims. Even so, some argued that the killer may have changed his MO. Leaning in the direction of serial murders is a sustained red herring. Complicating an already complex case, one of Liskas teenage sons knew Zombie Doe from school. A major theme running through the novel is teenage obsession with social media and their clueless parents failure to supervise their childrens activities. A similar theme was explored in an earlier novel Reconstructing Amelia. Although theres plenty of nail-biting action here, theres also much needless repetition. And the bizarre climax is justified only if Hoag wanted to shock her readers senseless because instead of tying up loose ends, the finale leaves them to dangle and confuse. Still, real fans are sure to overlook such flaws and happily embrace the novelists latest.

This is an eight-session training, which is available either as an afternoon class, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. or as an evening class, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The afternoon and evening classes run concurrently and attendance can be mixed, depending upon availability. Only one class can be missed in the 8-session series and the CPR and last class is mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the Sheriffs Office. The purpose of CERT is to train and certify volunteers to be first responders in their communities in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane or tornado. The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism. Studies of behavior following a disaster have shown that volunteers perform more effectively if they have had prior training and planning in how to function as a team. Consider this opportunity to learn how to form or join a CERT group in your community by signing up for this no-cost training program.

A cowboy was walking down the street with his new pet dachshund. A passerby asked him why a cowboy would own that kind of dog. The cowboy answered, Well, somebody told me to get a long little doggie.Sonnys placeAt the turn of the century a cattle baron bought his three boys a ranch near Arcadia to raise cattle. He named it Focus because thats where the sons raise meat. They kept track of the cows and bulls on a catalyst.Real cowboyA kid walked up to a man wearing a 10-gallon hat, leather vest, leather chaps, and sneakers. The kid asked him, Mr. Cowboy, why do you wear that big hat? The cowboy replied, Well, son, the big hat protects me from hot sun and driving rain, and at night I put it over my face when I sleep on the range, so it protects me then, too. Why do you wear that leather vest? It also helps to keep the weather off me, and it has pockets where I can keep my valuables. Well, why do you wear leather chaps? They protect my legs when Im driving my horse through mesquite and cactus. Well, Mr. Cowboy, the kid finally asked, Why do you wear sneakers? Thats so nobody will think Im a truck driver.Off the cuffCowboys Joe and Fess were resting their horses out in the wilderness near Williston. Whatd Emmaline give yew for yore birthday? asked Joe. Pair of cufflinks, said Fess. But I aint got no use for them. I cant even find anyplace to get my wrists pierced. Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. PUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 Mon.

Many times, some of his men literally froze to death during the Revolutionary War, but he was always spared. Every last one of them should have starved to death. Several times there were fortuitous weather phenomena that helped him win over superior forces armed and provisioned to the teeth. Miraculous fogs appeared at precisely the right time, on several occasions. Not a moment too soon, nor a moment too late. Just right. How do you account for that? It was only by the hand of God that these things could have happened. Because of the overwhelming circumstances, extreme weather, ill provisioned and equipped, the U.S. troops should have lost, but with Washingtons leadership, and divine intervention the U.S. troops prevailed. Their victories were miraculous; Gods hand was clearly with this man. I think providence wanted this nation to be born. Are we to witness her demise? Not if I can help it. Is this a nation worth fixing, and keeping? It does need a little work, and a few patriots. But, it is a keeper. D.I.

Friday, July 12, 2013 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING At the western end of 104th there is a cul-de-sac, but there is a platted road running north, called Southwest 57th Terrace Road, also, according to county records, known as Seabiscuit Drive. This road could be improved to give access. If the road south of 104th were finished, it would take it directly to 103rd, but would run right next to the newly improved Liberty Park, at the corner of 103rd and 57th. Other planned access points include Southwest 100th Street to the east, which is publicly dedicated but unimproved, and Southwest 101st Place, a paved road that exists to the west of the property in question. In a letter to neighbors, Cathy Belculfine of Alejandria Estates noted, Without a doubt a mixed family sub-division will generate hundreds of extra vehicles on Southwest 103rd Street Road. If you have ever been stuck in traffic on this two-lane road behind a school bus and think it was bad, picture 220 more homes using this road. Think of it, there could be many homes with three vehicles, do the math, 660 cars or motorcycles; just one trip in and out would generate 1,980 vehicles daily. County staff recommended approval of the rezoning, citing three issues that first, it would not adversely affect the public interest; second, is consistent with the Marion County Comprehensive Plan and, third, is compatible with the surrounding land uses. Its that third statement that people are criticizing, noting that only Cherrywood Phase 8, to the northwest of the property, is PUD; all other surrounding developments are R-1. Early in the process, when neighbors were notified, several letters were received by the county protesting, including: Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Suchan of Southwest 103rd Loop ZONINGCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 in Cherrywood: Any and all changes made to rezone this property will be detrimental to the valuation of all properties surrounding this parcel of land. Please take into consideration all the homeowners in the immediate area of this property and the bad effect it will have on them and their homes. Jack Kreutchic of Southwest 56th Avenue in Alejandria Estates: If this is allowed and 200 plus homes are built on this parcel over 800 car trips each day would be passing our home. In the over 30 years I have lived in Marion County this is the first time I have asked for any government official to help me. He noted at a meeting that percent of the surrounding properties were zoned R-1. Speaking at a meeting, Leonard Caldwell of Southwest 54th Court in Woods and Meadows, said that to be comparable to surrounding subdivisions, the developer could develop no more than 100 homes. William Ballou of Southwest 100th Loop advised of security and safety concerns caused by the increase in population and traffic that would be allowed if the rezoning was approved. For reference, the county case is 130407Z for parcel 35695-011-01.

Chuckles prevailed when a young boy arrived on his tricycle wearing an Uncle Sam hat that was clearly bigger than his head. He was one of the youngest in the parade. During the event food and beverages were available at very reasonable prices. How could we celebrate our Independence Day without fireworks, a good old fashioned hotdog and a big soft drink? Reportedly this was the largest turnout so far, and all who attended had a great time with loads of camaraderie.

BRIEFS State Road 200 Coalition to hear PurvesThe State Road 200 Coalition will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, July 15 (note change of date), at the Collins Health Resource Center, Building 300, Suite 303, TimberRidge Medical Park, on Southwest 110th Street off State Road 200 in Ocala. The meeting begins at 1 p.m. with refreshments available at 12:30. Steve Purves, CEO of Munroe Regional Medical Center, will be the speaker and should be able to give an update on the lease with Health Management Associates. The meeting is open to the public.

The rezoning case is scheduled to come before the County Commission on Tuesday, July 16, at 2 p.m. At the last meeting, developer Enrique Suarez of Miami agreed to hold a town meeting prior to the case coming before the board. That meeting is tentatively scheduled for today, Friday, July 12, at Freedom Public Library at 3:30 p.m. and is open to the public. The change in zoning would, according to neighbors, allow for more houses in the development, which, according to notes from previous county meetings, is not planned as an over-55 community. It could accommodate as many as 220 detached single-family homes. The area east of Southwest 62nd Avenue Road, south of 95th Street and State Road 200, and north of 103rd Street Road, is referred to by county officials as being in the SR 200/I-75 triangle. A major bone of contention is access to the site. The property is virtually surrounded by Cherrywood Estates, two phases, Oak Crest, Woods and Meadows East, Meadow Glenn and Alejandria Estates. The small Alejandria area would bear the brunt of access off busy Southwest 103rd Street Road to the south. Alejandria consists of Southwest 56th Avenue, northbound from 103rd, and 104th Street, on the north side of Alejandria. Entering 56th,and continuing to the northern end of the development, there is right of way leading to the property in question, and that is one of the roads considered for access, which residents claim would change the nature of the small, quiet subdivision.28~ Friday, July 12, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Residents fight zoning changeCounty hearing Tuesday; town hall meeting is today (Friday) PLEASESEEZONING, PAGE3 A 69-year-old Pine Run man died Saturday, July 6 in the gated communitys swimming pool. Erich E. Zeuch of Southwest 101st Lane was spotted in the pool by neighbors who had been in the communitys hot tub and moved over to the pool. They pulled him out and immediately began CPR, according to a report from the Marion County Sheriffs Office. Others called 91-1 from the phone on the wall at the clubhouse. A security guard spoke to Zeuch just a few minutes before the incident and the victim reportedly told the guard he had four more laps to go. He said he swims about 45 minutes a day. Neighbors told deputies that Zeuch lived alone. An autopsy was scheduled. Pine Run man dies in pool The largest school supply drive in Marion County celebrates a dozen years of giving to students this summer. Operation: Stuff the Bus started in 2002 as a summer drive to gather school supplies for Marion Countys homeless students. Today, the program helps approximately 2,500 needy students throughout Marion County Public Schools. The annual program is cosponsored by Marion County Public Schools and local military organizations. Operation: Stuff the Bus affords local residents the opportunity to make a true difference in a homeless childs life by donating new school supplies, childrens clothing, shoes, books and games, personal hygiene items, gifts cards and financial contributions. To date, the campaign has collected approximately Stuff the Bus starts Saturday PLEASESEEBUS, PAGE3 Celebrating the Fourth of July Crossroads Church holds eventCrossroads Church of God hosted a Fourth of July celebration to commemorate our independence provided for by our Founding Fathers in our Constitution. To open the events of the evening, there was a parade of bikes or anything that rolled on wheels and was decorated with the Fourth of July theme. The participants decorated their trikes, bikes and even baby coaches with the American flag and other Independence Day symbols. Pastor Richard Colon led the procession as Bishop Paul Woosley brought up the rear on his motorcycle. Emily Kimball was made up as Lady Liberty and rode in a decorated chariot pulled by her mother, Melinda Kimball, on a bike adorned with PHOTO BY HARRY LAMBAngellyna Wilson rides her bike in the Crossroads parade.

More photos on Page 27. Financial, theft cases being probedDeputies are looking into two cases in the Southwest area involving possible financial fraud and theft of a laptop. An 85-year-old man from On Top of the World recently had his car repossessed, and when his daughter flew down from up north to find out why, she discovered irregularities in his finances. She told deputies she found numerous personal checks written out to another individual. The victim has had three strokes in the past year and can only remember writing some of the checks. The investigation is continuing. In another case, a woman who grounded her son took away his laptop and stored it in a closet. When her exboyfriend moved out, the laptop was found to be missing. The boyfriend reportedly moved to California. The woman knew which pawn shop her boyfriend used, went to the shop and found thelaptop. She was able to boot it up to show that she was the owner and deputies were called. The probe is continuing. 000FEMKwww.pearsonnissanofocala.com2060 Sw College Rd. Ocala
