Property appraiser, tax collector let locals know how things work BY JIM CLARK EditorResidents of the Southwest 200 Corridor got to meet a couple of Marion County constitutional officers and learn how their departments work at a seminar put on by the League of Women Voters at Master the Possibilities at On Top of the World. This month, the two attendees were Villie Smith, the countys property appraiser, and George Albright, tax collector. Smith had a visual presentation talking about his duties and some of the results of his 17 years in office. After being elected in 1996, he has not had opposition in his bids for re-election every four years. He listed the duties of the appraiser as determining the value of real and personal property, noting that there are about 265,000 real property parcels and 20,000 tangible personal property items in the county. They are all reappraised annually. The countys population was 70,000 in 1970, and is now about 340,000. The number of deeds peaked in 2007 during a construction boom, but numbers have dropped since then. The taxable value in the county was $27 billion in 2007, but is now $14 billion. He spoke of the distribution of taxes, showing that the schools are the largest beneficiary of property taxes at 41 percent. Municipalities get only 8 percent. Albright spoke about his position as tax collector, two which is he was first elected in 2004. He noted that he, the appraiser and the county clerk all worked closely together. The tax collectors work is backed up electronically every day and stored in two different locations. The tax collector is now responsible for driver licenses and tags. He said he has worked to expanding the offices throughout the county, and has tried to improve service by having all employees cross-trained in all facets of his office. He also said that when people call his office for help, the calls go to a call center where those answering the phones are dedicated to helping the public. The clerks at the windows serving the walk-up public no longer have to be interrupted by phone calls. Also, each clerk can perform any of the duties of his office. He also noted that people born in Florida can get a birth certificate through his office locally. Albright also produced a handout with some statistics. There are 273,572 licensed drivers in Marion County as of January 2013, and there are 359,875 registered vehicles. Two Wildwood men face various drug-related charges after their vehicle was stopped early Monday, July 1. Michael Allen Greene, 31, of Lemon Street, was accused of driving with license suspended as habitual offender and possession of a controlled substance (oxycodone). His bond was set at $7,000 and he was released a few hours after his arrest. James Wendell Jackson, 20, of Jackson Street, was accused of George Albright Villie Smith Stand Your Ground at Friday ForumStand Your Ground Is Floridas law necessary to ensure the individuals inalienable right to self-defense or does it encourage the escalation of gun violence and a return to the law of the jungle? The Friday Forum which next meets July 12 at 11:30 a.m. at Buffet City, State Road 200 and MLK Jr. Blvd., will explore the moral and legal ramifications of this legislation with its principal author, State Rep. Dennis Baxley, who will be joined in an examination of conflicting aspects of Stand Your Ground by two local lawyers John Moxley, retired elder law attorney and long time member of the Marion County Democratic Executive Committee, and Cynthia Tolbert, immigration and family law practitioner who last year sponsored a forum on The New Jim Crow.

FORUMCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 felony possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. His bond was set at $5,500 and he was also released a few hours after being arrested. According to a report from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, a deputy on patrol spotted a vehicle pulling out of Waffle House at State Road 40 and the Interstate allegedly without stopping at the stop sign. Windows were tinted too dark, according to the report. The car was stopped after the vehicle made a u-turn and tried to get on the southbound ramp of Interstate 75. The deputy said that the driver, Greene, advised his license was suspended. The deputy wrote that there was a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. A computer check showed the drivers license was suspended on Jan. 30, 2013, for being a habitual offender. He was placed under arrest. Another deputy, who had arrived at the scene, told Jackson to get out of the car, and wrote in his report that he observed a clear bag containing green leafy substance falling out of the co-defendants shorts. The deputy picked up the bag and noticed a smaller plastic bag with a white granular substance within the larger bag. He field tested the substance which came back positive for marijuana. Jackson was then placed under arrest. The report reads that during a search of the car, the first deputy found two blue round pills on the drivers seat and they were identified as oxycodone.

Since then I have been thinking about all sorts of flying things. So, todays Pun Alley is for the birds, butterflies and bugs.Fair weather foulWhen the Madrid Zoo wanted to add whooping cranes to their menagerie they found they could make a trade with the San Diego Zoo for a species of Wildebeest. Arrangements were made to trade the cranes. The birds were dispatched via airfreight. However, when they arrived at the Madrid Airport, it was very cold and the birds refused to disembark. It was reported to the zoo director that the cranes in Spain stay mainly on the plane.Bird in the bushA hiker was trekking through the Ocala National Forest and came upon a baby bald eagle that had fallen from the nest. The bird didnt seem well at all, but the hiker tried to help by placing the weak baby bird on a nearby branch. Unfortunately a forest ranger tracked him down and charged him with Ill eagle in tree.BuggedWhen the great Charles Darwin was visiting the country house of a friend, the two boys of the family thought they would play a trick on the scientist. They caught a butterfly, a grasshopper, a beetle, and a centipede, and out of these evolved a strange composite insect. They took the centipedes body, the butterflys wings, the grasshoppers legs, and the beetles head, glued them carefully together and presented it to Darwin for identification. Darwin looked at the bug and then at the boys. Did you notice whether it made a humming sound when you caught it, boys? he asked. Yes, they answered. Then, said Darwin, with a twinkle in his eye, its a hum-bug.PeepsIve never seen a butterfly cry, but Ive seen a moth bawl. Two attractive female birds were showing off in front of some males. Both had spent two hours at the hairdresser, but it was the curly bird that got the perm. Joes wife does the best bird imitations. She watches him like a hawk. A travel agency was offering a trip to the Atlantic coast to view and study shore birds. They billed it as Gull Lovers Travels. The two bedbugs that fell in love got married in the spring. Some visitors ignored the Please dont feed the birds sign at the zoo and were arrested for contributing to the delicacy of a mynah. The pet store had a bird contest with no perches necessary. A friend has two ducks that he uses as an alarm clock. They wake him up at the quack of dawn. The birdhouse was named home tweet home. A bird watcher had a mynah problem but with no egrets. If you eat caterpillars you will get butterflies in your stomach.Keepers weepersAt the Palatka aviary one of the keepers jobs was to put locks on the birdcages each night the Bald Eagles, the tropical Toucans, the Marbled Godwits, and the Bay Gulls. One evening he missed a cage as he had skipped by the Bay Gulls enclosure, and they had escaped. He lost his job because he forgot to put locks on the Bay Gulls.

The thunder sounded like a heavenly giggle and before I could make it to the door, I was completely drenched. Ducking inside out of the rain, I was greeted by my wife who calmly asked, Oh, my. Is it raining? Of course its raining, I shivered, Ive just washed my car. As I was drying off, I chuckled to myself as a favorite Bible verse came to mind. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 KJV.) Two things in life are for certain. One: things will always fall apart. Two: God can always take those things that fall apart and pull them together for His honor and glory come rain or shine.Rev. James L.

ELIZABETH STREET By Laurie Fabiano In this historical fiction, the American roots of an Italian immigrant family are closely examined. The heart of the story begins in the early 1900s when a young widow crosses the Atlantic from Scilla, Calabria to the teeming, noisy, and noxious lower East Side of New York City. Here circumstances test her strength and courage as her family struggles against extortion from the notorious Black Hand (the precursor of the Mafia). Poor, mostly illiterate Italians in the neighborhood either pay the thugs or face the consequencesoften the firebombing of their stores. The most obvious explanation for this passivity is surely the fear of police imported with them from Italy. For her part Giovanna first fears the Black Hand enough to pay them but later defies the organization along with her second husband, a store owner. Giovanna is based on Fabianos great-grandmother and heroes like the crusading cop Lieutenant Petrosini and villains like Lupo the Wolf are drawn from real life. The author interviewed her own mother (one of Giovannas daughters) with video camera rolling and learned of the mothers cliff-hanging kidnapping when she was only 17. This and a bulging archive of documents empowered the author to map out the family saga. What Fabiano lacked were the actual conversations that took place on these momentous occasions. And Bookmark Pat Wellington Examining the roots of Italian immigrants herein lies the weakness of the novel. Her invented dialogues simply dont ring true. The author was well along in developing her book when on September 11, 2001 she found herself in New York City and was injured in a stampede of people when the tragedy hit. At that point she could only focus on her husband and daughter. For that reason she did not write again for an entire year. But what compelled her to finish the novel was the hope that it would be healing to the many Italians whose ancestors were terrorized by the Black Hand. Book worms who love to immerse themselves in a multigenerational book should find Elizabeth Street their cup of tea. Marions Most Wanted LaQunda S.

Friday, July 5, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 5, 2013 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Instead of being adversaries to government power (the media of Washington, D.C., are) servants to it and mouthpieces for it. So said the Guardians Glenn Greenwald, who broke the story of Edward Snowdens disclosure of NSA spying on the American people, after Greenwalds confrontation with Meet the Presss David Gregory. Greenwald neednt have limited his observation to the D.C. media. Plenty of reporters and cablenews talking heads are playing the same role in the NSA drama. Indeed, if they spent half the time investigating Obamas Big Brother operations that they spend sneering at Snowden and Greenwald, Americans might demand that the government stop spying on them. But to much of the mainstream (and not-so-mainstream) media, Snowden and Greenwald not the NSA, the Obama administration, and the supine Congress are the story a story of villainy. The examples are endless. The day after Snowden revealed himself as the whistleblower, Joe Scarborough, the former Republican congressman and host of MSNBCs Morning Joe, ordered his director to take the image of that weasel off the screen. The other day, his sidekick, Mika Brzezinski, asked, Is there anything we can do to track him down? She meant the government. Brzezinski went on to accuse Snowden of taking the job with NSA contractor Booz Allen Hamilton to screw over our government. Thats how one who speaks power to truth spins it. Snowdens service to the American people is hardly undercut by his having taken the job intending to expose government violations of the Fourth Amendment. MSNBCs self-identification as a progressive network is hard to square with its unrelenting assaults on Snowden and Greenwald, and its de-emphasis of NSA surveillance. Andrea Mitchell, who functions as the networks chief diplomatic stenographer, wondered why the NSA was hiring contractors when it could be recruiting people with the right value system from the military. (Shes forgotten that whistleblower Bradley Manning is in the military.) Chris Matthews of Hardball says that any foreign government that wont turn Snowden over to the U.S. government is no buddy of ours. MSNBC personnel routinely describe Greenwald as defensive, which apparently is their code word for people who push back at stupid questions. For example, when Gregory asked Greenwald if he could be indicted for aiding and abetting Snowden, and Greenwald asked in return how a journalist could equate reporting with criminal activity, he was treated with disdain. Gregory even questioned Greenwalds journalistic credentials, as did Paul Farhi of the Washington Post. Ive focused on MSNBC because it has so egregiously and persistently circled the wagons around the government. Its an old story: TV hosts and reporters need access to government officials, but access is jeopardized if they antagonize those officials. Better to play it safe and sneer at Snowden and Greenwald. You dont have to work for MSNBC to suck up to power. Op-ed writers from conservative David Brooks to progressive Richard Cohen have tried to portray Snowden as an alienated oddball, as though no one could have a legitimate purpose in unmasking government surveillance. (Brooks thought it relevant to write that Snowden has not been a regular presence around his mothers house for years. Really!) Pundits repeatedly refer to Snowdens having dropped out of high school, which apparently signals some serious moral or mental defect in the young man. More likely he was bored with the dull and regimented curriculum so typical of government high schools. Others have tried to read much into Snowdens stops in Hong Kong and Moscow. He might be a spy, they suggest. But wouldnt a spy have kept his identity secret while selling his information to the enemy? It doesnt occur to the pundits that Snowdens priority right now is to stay out of the clutches of the U.S. government. Snowden has no moral obligation to be a martyr. Lets not forget how Bradley Manning has been Since Im a resident of Florida, most people assume that, since Im a big sports fan, I am a fan of the Florida Gators football team. Thats not necessarily true. Yes, I do follow them. You cant help it if you watch sports shows in this area youre exposed to them all the time. In the past I had covered some Gator games when I worked elsewhere, going back to the Charley Pell era. Lately, I enjoyed watching Tim Tebow, not only for his football prowess but for the way he conducted himself. When Tebow was signed recently by the New England Patriots, I admit I longed for one chance to see that famous jump pass to Aaron Hernandez again. Alas, no jump pass for Hernandez, just a prison jump suit. There have been reports that Hernandez, already arrested for murder in Massachusetts, was being investigated for a double murder in Boston a couple of years ago. Apparently, there were also some probes into his behavior in Gainesville. If true, its a classic story of an athlete who feels entitled to live his way, with all his money, and not worry about little things such as rules. Of course, he is not the first athlete to be charged. Some of those football players who were convicted were Rae Caruth, serving 24 years for conspiracy to commit murder, with a projected release date in 2018; Darryl Henley, drug trafficking and attempted conspiracy to commit murder, with a projected release date in 2031 after a 41-year sentence; Eric Naposki, who played for the Patriots and Colts in the 1990s, was arrested for an older murder and is serving life without parole; Robert Rozier, St. Louis Cardinals, convicted of multiple murders, put in witness protection after testifying against someone else, but then passed 29 bad checks and was convicted under the third strike law and sentenced to life; and a guy most people know, Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens, who was convicted of obstruction in a plea deal in a murder case where he testified against two others, who were acquitted. And, of course, theres O.J. Simpson, who was convicted of robbery and kidnapping, but acquitted of murdering his wife and another man. According to Wikipedia, no other sport comes close to having this many athletes involved in murder. You have to wonder if some football players cant separate the violence on the field from their personal lives. So the lesson here is obvious, especially to adults, and needs to be conveyed to children: Choose your heroes carefully. Just because a guy can catch a pass, block downfield or get a lot of tackles and sacks doesnt make him a model human being. Check deeper into his background before you jump on the bandwagon honoring a superstar. That star could end up in a Massachusetts jail, already dropped by his team, waiting to see what his future will be.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Of course, by now most of you have recognized that these are the original signers of the Declaration of Independence, which was put forth on July 4, 1776. We celebrate this date as the founding of our nation 237 years ago, the date when our forefathers sought to get away from the tyrannical rule of Great Britain. Many Americans enjoy this freedom by protesting actions by our government. Whether you agree with the protests or not, its because of the 56 men listed above that we have the right to speak out against actions of the government. If you think thats a right thats shared across the world, just look at Egypt, Syria, China and other places. A lot of people who speak out against those governments manage to mysteriously disappear, or they surface in a government prison. So even if you dont like some of the things that are happening with our leaders, be grateful that you can speak publicly, and remember that these men were among those responsible for our freedoms of today.

Friday, July 5, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, July 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Old Fashioned Hot German Potato SaladYield: 6 servings 4 medium Idaho potatoes 2 bacon strips 1 diced Spanish onion 1/2 cup diced celery 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons sugar 2 tablespoons cornstarch 1/3 cup cider vinegar 1 cup water Boil potatoes in skins and peel while hot. Slice potatoes thinly. In large skillet, fry bacon until crisp and remove from skillet. In bacon drippings, brown onion and celery. Stir in salt, sugar and cornstarch. Add vinegar and water. Stir in sliced potatoes; as sauce thickens while adding potatoes, more water may be needed. Transfer to serving dish and serve hot.Loaded Baked Potato SaladYield: 2 quarts 4 pounds Idaho potatoes, peeled 1 pound bacon, crisply cooked, and chopped into 1/2-inch pieces (fat reserved, if desired) 4 ounces unsalted butter, softened 1/2 cup chopped green onions 2 cups grated or shredded cheddar cheese 1 1/2 cups sour cream (regular or low-fat) 1 tablespoon black pepper 1 teaspoon salt Cook whole potatoes in boiling, unsalted water until tender. Refrigerate until chilled, then chop into 1-inch pieces. Transfer potatoes to a large bowl along with the remaining ingredients and thoroughly combine. Add some of reserved bacon fat if desired. Chill at least 2 hours before serving. Adjust season ing prior to serving. Note: Any condiments or toppings typically added to a loaded baked potato may be used for this recipe.Potatosaladis theperfectdish forapicnic orpotluckFAMILY FEATURES No picnic or potluck is complete without potato salad. Whether its served warm, cold, creamy, cheesy or with a splash of vinegar, the dish is a true American cookout classic. Potato salads are easy to make and even easier to pack full of flavor. Craft your own potato salad by cutting a delicious, Idahopotato into cubes with the skins still on. Boil in water for about 8 to 15 minutes, then check for doneness by piercing a cube with a fork or skewer. If the fork goes through the potato with little resistance, drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Add your favorite dressing and ingredients while the potatoes are still warm. Warm potatoes more easily absorb the delicious dressing. These decadent dishes are best eaten the day after theyre made to give the flavors time to meld. When youre ready to serve your potato salad, keep it cold by placing your serving dish in a larger bowl filled with ice. Family meals are always better with delicious, flavorful potatoes. Always look for the Grown in Idaho seal to be sure youre buy ing genuine Idaho potatoes.

Drain potatoes and cool immediately under cold running water. While potatoes are cooling, cut green beans into 1-inch pieces; halve cherry tomatoes and quarter eggs.

God instituted marriage as being between a man and a woman and no Judge/Court has the authority to change it. Too many Americans now want God out of our lives, and if we keep mocking him, we will get what they ask for. It is now time for all Christians, regardless of denomination, to stand together and say no more! Preach this message from every pulpit in America that we will no longer tolerate these efforts to take God out of our American way of life. Whether you believe it or not, America was founded on Christian principles and has grown to be the greatest nation in the world because of Gods blessing. If he removes them, we will be a third world country at best. Throughout history, when Gods chosen people rebelled against him, he had no choice but to punish them for their disobedience. America is no different, but unfortunately, we now have leaders who apparently have no fear of God whatsoever and are inviting our destruction as a great nation. We have to get rid of these leaders and change our direction as a nation. There is no way a Christian can support this administration as it defies God at every turn. We cant go against Gods word without facing his wrath. All believers must stand together, now!

Friday, July 5, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, July 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com She stands majestic and proud, an enduring icon of American opportunity. Triumphantly she sings a song of welcome to ships arriving in the harbor. The Mother of Exiles, our beloved Statue of Liberty, reaches out to all who come to America in search of freedom. On the base of her pedestal are written the immortal words of a Jewish American poetess, Emma Lazarus: Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free ..Send these, the homeless, the tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door. Emma was born to a Sephardic Jewish family on July 22, 1849. She was the fourth daughter of Esther and Moses Lazarus. Her father was a wealthy sugar merchant with homes in New York City and Newport, Rhode Island. Her early education was by private tutors but her writing talent was recognized early by her father who published her first set of poems at the age of 17. After the publication of her poems, she subsequently met Ralph Waldo Emerson with whom she corresponded. He became a mentor to her and encouraged her writings. Although she was not particularly religious, her Jewish background played an important part in her poetic expression. In the Jewish Synagogue at Newport is considered an early expression of her Jewish consciousness and was published in 1871. Throughout her life, she struggled with the encumbrances of the day on women and Jewish writers. Women in those days were obliged to stick to soft subjects such as family and romance. Emma yearned to write more substantial stuff. Her most productive period was during the early 1880s with the publication of essays, letters and poems. It was in 1883 that she penned The New Colossus, the immortal sonnet that appears on the base of the Statue of Liberty. It was originally written for an auction to raise money for the statues pedestal. The inspiring words became a symbol for all immigrant groups coming to America in search of a better life. Emma, no doubt, had strong feelings for her co-religionists in Russia where many pogroms forced Jews to flee their native land. It was also at this point that she urged Russian Jews to immigrate to Palestine to establish a Jewish state and she was considered an ardent Zionist. Lazarus also wrote essays expressing her belief that assimilated American Jews should not take their status lightly and to be aware that anti-Semitism needs to be addressed whenever it rears its ugly head. She was also a proponent of American literature, claiming that American writing had its own rightful place in the literary world and that the American tradition had left its mark on the world. Lazarus exemplified a Jewish American woman straddling both cultures, Jewish and American and she used her literary prowess to this end. As we celebrate this July 4 weekend, let us pause and remember the many freedoms we have as Americans. Let us keep in mind that we are a country founded by immigrants, from Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America, all bringing to our shores skills and culture from their native lands adding to the mlange we call America. Let us remember that all have contributed to the development of the United States and all cultures have left their mark. We have received the best the world has to offer and we have taken the fruits of our immigrants and turned them into wealth and prosperity. Let the fireworks fly, the barbecues fire and the flame of liberty burn bright. Happy birthday, America!

Marion County Fire Rescue believes that when people are informed they can make better decisions; and when it comes to fire rescue, those decisions can mean the difference between life and death. Although no family can prevent all accidents and no home is fireproof, some simple safety tips can decrease the impact fire and other emergencies have on families. Learn how to prevent fire and how to properly respond should one occur by staying after the Social for the presentation on Tuesday, July 16.Blood driveOnce again, its time to roll up your sleeves and do your part to help Floridas Blood Centers, the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. The Big Red Bus will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot on Wednesday, July 17, to take your donation. Residents may sign up on the Blood Drive sheet hanging on the Activity Wall, or see Pat and her volunteers in the lobby the day the bus is here. Dont forget to eat a good breakfast and bring your photo ID; and, remember, you can donate blood even if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, and you only need be cancer-free for one year. Donating blood not only helps others, but it is beneficial for yourself, as well. Pat tells us that if you donate blood every other month, you may reduce your risk of heart attack by as much as 70 percent. That fact alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on July 17. We hope to see you there!Homer Noodleman comedy/variety showHomer Noodleman returns to Marion Landing to perform his unique one-man comedy-variety show on Sunday, Aug. 11, from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Variety is the key word as Homer incorporates comedy ranging from zany and visual to stand-up patter and audience participation. He is also a highly trained vocalist, accomplished musician, ventriloquist, comedy magician and impressionist, and has performed in leading theaters and clubs throughout England. He has played many venues in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, Georgia, Florida and Canada, and has worked with stars such as Tony Orlando, Johnny Mathis, Gladys Knight and Tom Jones. He has also been the star attraction on many cruise lines. Tickets for the show are $3 each and will be on sale beginning July 16 at the Tuesday Social, in the Activities Office and at the door. Those who saw Homer last year are looking forward to his return engagement, and if you havent, this is a show you wont want to miss.New art class Our new art class is scheduled to begin on Monday, Aug. 19. This two-hour class will be held each Monday morning in the Craft Room for eight weeks and will cost a total of $40. The class will be led by a very talented art teacher from the Artist Hub in Ocala, and different mediums will be taught at the same time. So whether youre interested in oils, acrylics, watercolors or drawing, your individual needs can be accommodated. You would however be required to bring your own supplies. The sign-up sheet for the class is posted on the Activity Wall in the Lifestyle Center, and prepayment by Aug. 12 is required. Please stop by the Activities Office with your check or if you would like further information.Water exerciseStart your day out with some fun in the pool and get your exercise at the same time. Aquatic exercise provides a gentle way to exercise because the water, not your lower body, supports your weight. In addition, the buoyancy allows your joints and muscles to experience less stress, and the warmth of the water can encourage muscle and joint relaxation. Water exercises are especially beneficial if you are a senior, have arthritis or if you experience joint or muscle pain. Our Water Aerobics class meets every day at 8:45 a.m., and Aquasize meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 a.m. So remember: its gentle on joints and muscles, you have extra resistance in the water, you can exercise longer without getting overheated, and you can work multiple areas of your body simultaneouslyall good reasons to come to the pool each morning and join a class. Table TennisLooking for some indoor fun? Why not play a few games of table tennis. Table tennis, also known as ping pong, was invented in England near the end of the 19th century as a recreational activity for families or friends to play at home. It was played with simple equipment and could be a fun, fast paced activity for those without high athletic skills, strength, or endurance. Our table is now located in the Lifestyle Center for easier access and can be set up for play when no other scheduled activity is taking place. Paddles and balls are stored with the table, and the rules of the game and a sign-up sheet are available along with the equipment. Anyone wishing to play regularly should contact the Activities Office to reserve a day and time on the activity calendar.

RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comThe OTOW Lions Club held its installation of officers dinner on June 25. Following a buffet dinner, the following officers were installed: President Richard Spahn; 1st Vice President Wendy Phillips; 2nd Vice President Martha Schley; Secretary Dolores Conant; Treasurer Ana Wright; Tail Twister Jerry Schneider; Lion Tamer Peter Dodd; Membership Chair Estelle Clark; and Immediate Past President Ralph Mills; 2nd Year Directors Eloise Jurgens and John Redden; 1st Year Directors Michael Topf and JJ Johnson.

Additionally, Sarah Tooher assisted with the unveiling of a special plaque which was placed on the Lions podium in memory of her husband, William Tooher. The plaque reads, In Memory of PDG William H. Tooher, November 21, 1930-March 04, 2012. Outgoing President Ralph Mills thanked club members for their hard work, nothing the many activities that were conducted in service to those in our society who are in need of a helping hand. Incoming President Richard Spahn then spoke to the membership about what it means to be a Lion and stressed the need to work together to achieve the ambitious goals of the 2013-2014 fiscal year. OTOW Lions install officers Nobody can say I did not warn the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, for all the good my warning did. I am not one to say, I told you so, but I told you so. I swear, at times I think my wife thinks I do not want to do something simply because I am too lazy. Nine times out of 10 it may be true, but what about that tenth time? What women need to understand is when their husband does not do something; there may be a good, logical reason behind it. The problem men have is articulating their perfectly good and logical reason to their better half. Trust me on this one, ladies. There are excellent reasons your husband does not always do what you request of him. I wish someone would explain this to my wife. It is just hard for us to explain it in terms women can understand. Last week, for example, my wife made a request of me. She said, Honey ... Whenever my wife begins a sentence with Honey, I know I am in for a sticky situation. Honey comes from bees and whenever she so addresses me, I know I be in trouble, and you can be sure there is a stinger in it for me somewhere. My wife was looking out the window with her arms folded, which means she is thinking about some job around the house for Yours Truly. Then she said, Honey, dont you think you should wash the car? If I live to be a hundred, that thought never crossed my mind. Do you know how much trouble it is to wash my car? Then, it never fails to rain right after I wash the car and have to wash it all over again. That was on Tuesday and I said to my wife, You know, Dear, whenever a husband so addresses his wife, it always means he is trying to find some way out of doing her request, while making it sound like he wants to do it. I said, You know, Dear, its a wonderful idea but it looks like it might rain. The key to this point is to put on a grimace and look up in the sky, in a thoughtful frame of mind. Yes, I think I saw a raindrop. It wont be long now. Right here is where most men fail. Simply because the first round is over does not mean, by any stretch of the imagination, the issue is put to rest. I can sum up the next move in one word vamoose. In other words, disappear. Remember the old saying, Out of sight, out of chores? Find something to get you out of the line of fire. There is always a chance slim though it is the Missus will get busy with something else and forget. By Thursday, I forgot the car washing idea and was standing around our living room looking out the window. It seemed harmless enough. Have you heard the old saying, An idle husband is a wifes workhorse? I heard those familiar words beginning with Honey ... And a streak of panic flowed through my body, freezing up every muscle I still had. Honey, our car really needs a good washing. Now, that was bad enough and I think I could have worked out something else except before I could clear my throat, she added a phrase no husband wants to hear. Dont you agree? If I say, No, I am in trouble. If I say, Yes, I am in trouble. I am duped if I do not and doped if I do. How is a husband to win with the odds so stacked against him? With a feigned meekness that would make St. Francis of Assisi envious, I said what all good husbands say under similar conditions, Yes, Dear. The next three hours found me outside, vigorously washing Old Nelly. As I washed her, I could feel someone (I am not mentioning any names) watching from our living room window. The smile on my face camouflaged the clenched teeth behind it. Just as I was putting the finishing touches on the wax job, I felt something cold on the back of my neck. At first, being engrossed in my chore, I did not pay any attention to it. Then another and another and another. Then came the rain. I glanced at my freshly waxed car and saw drops of water cheerfully dancing Of course its raining; I just washed my car Out to Pastor Rev.

corn and in reality, except for a few exceptions like me, who doesnt? We waited in line while a woman and what I presumed were her three young children choose and paid for their vast assortment of treats. Finally it was my turn and I approached the clerk behind the counter. Immediately the young man turned away and began replacing the popcorn in the popper and adjusting the Slurpee like drink machine. Behind me the line grew a bit longer and I could sense, a bit less patient. When the clerk returned I ordered a small bag of popcorn. He then returned to the popcorn machine and waited while the kernels burst forth falling delicately into the bin. With professional expertise, he scooped up the white morsels and filled a small paper bag complete with red stripes on it. Six dollars, he smiled at me. After picking up my jaw from the glass case in front of me, I paid the money and escorted my wife towards the theater. Once inside, we found a couple of seats and proceeded to watch no less than 20 minutes of previews and ten minutes of instructions on how to behave in the movie house. I was nearly asleep when our film finally began. After the show, I left the building with an increased sympathy for that mother of three who was in front of us at the refreshment stand. How do young people with children afford to go out for an evening to the show? After seeing the previews of the Lone Ranger and similar flicks designed for youngsters, I then wondered why young people with children would go to the movies at all. Not including gas, it was $21 bucks for me and the missus to watch a twohour movie. Had I gotten the M&Ms I wanted; it might have been closer to $30. It sure makes me appreciate Movie Night at Cherrywood where we can watch a first class movie on a big screen and enjoy free popcorn and drinks. If you have suggestions, comments or opinions about anything in the Cherrywood section of the Citizen, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Its always good to hear from you. this meeting. Getting the word out to everyone is vitally important and this is one way of doing just that. At the meeting, each individual can present ideas of notification methods so that singles can let neighbors know they are alright; having neighbors checking in regularly on those living alone; and methods of providing timely assistance for anyone who might be in danger. Please make arrangements to attend this very important meeting and please inform your group or club to have a person attend who can relay the information to your members and fellow residents. We compliment David on his work and hope that this worthwhile and informative meeting will be well attended by all of our concerned residents here at Cherrywood.Ladies LuncheonJuly 10 at noon our ladies will be meeting again in the clubhouse for another wonderful social luncheon. Everyone is asked to bring a dish to pass along with their own place setting. These lunches are special in that it gives our ladies a chance to socialize and have a delicious, relaxing meal with friends and neighbors. About 30 people attended the previous luncheon so that is why the ladies are continuing to have them. The more the merrier as they say. The vast majority of our ladies are excellent cooks so you can be assured that there will be plenty of good food available. Dont miss out on this fun time.100 Days of Summer FestMonday evening, July 15, the second event in our 100 Days of Summer series will take place at the clubhouse with theFriday, July 5, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, July 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com According to About.com, Tai Chi is a self healing system of slow, graceful exercises that combine movement; meditation and rhythmic breathing to improve the flow of Chi which is thought to prevent illness and improve well being. Preliminary research suggests that Tai chi may reduce stress, lower blood pressure and help older adults by improving posture, balance, muscle tone, flexibility and strength. Cherrywood residents are fortunate in that we have a new, immensely qualified, Tai Chi instructor to provide classes every Monday at 4 p.m. in the clubhouse. Recruited by our regular fitness instructor Dr. Deb Rivera, Art Stalbow provides students with expert instruction in the art of Tai Chi. Beginning his career in the martial arts, Art is a black belt in Aikido and Tae Kwon Do. He progressed from those self defense methods into the healing forms of natural medicine to become a Master Instructor in several of the healing disciplines including Tai Chi. To list his qualifications and certificates would take this entire column but suffice it to say we would be hard pressed to find anyone with a more thorough background or more teaching credentials than Art. Among his many other credits, Art has written six e-books on health and healing. His style is smooth and easy with concise movements and concentration; clear instructions and directions; all presented with a sense of humor. Art provides his students with individual attention and like Deb, never pushes people beyond their limits. Patiently he encourages his students to strive for personal well being and satisfaction. Before moving to Florida five years ago, Art and his wife Mary Beth lived in the Hudson Valley area of New York where he ran two Martial Arts facilities. Art loves Florida and loves teaching. From the reaction of his dozen or so students last Monday, they love him too. A better, healthier life style is available to all here at Cherrywood for free. Both men and women are welcome and can enjoy what Tai Chi has to offer. Be sure to tell Art how glad we are to have the Art of Tai Chi.Attention bowlersWhile it may seem like a quite a while until September, time passes quickly and our bowling league is in need of a president and a treasurer. There are plans that have to be made; reservations set with the bowling alley and a million other details that need to be handled. If you are a bowler and want to see our fun, unsanctioned league conThe art of Tai Chi being taught at Cherrywood Cherrywood John Everlove tinue, we need you or some one you know that is willing to step up to the foul line and take this task on. Talk it over with your friends and fellow bowlers during the next few days and then contact Geri if you would be interested in helping solve this dilemma. We have a great number of residents who enjoy bowling as a regular part of their active social life and physical well being. We need individuals and maybe even a committee to organize and keep this great activity a part of Cherrywood. Bocce players have a ballOn Saturday, June 29, our Bocce Ball players led by Jay and Fred OHern had a very special evening. Jay and Fred provided pulled pork sandwiches for the group and everyone brought a dish to pass. As an added treat, Rich Becotte provided music and more than 50 people had a great time. The food ranged from potato and macaroni salads to fruit dishes of melons; grapes and blueberries. Assorted cheeses, cole slaws of many varieties and other goodies filled the three tables. Home made desserts of every flavor gave a perfect finish to the hearty meal. While Rich played music in the background, guests socialized; swam in the pool; played bocce and danced. It was a night of warm fellowship shared by a large group of our residents in the beauty of the clubhouse complex. Following the meal and the evening of fun and friendship, everyone went to work cleaning up and putting everything in its place. Many got to take a few things home to enjoy later in the evening or the next day. Thanks to all of them for their help. While typical of the many fun events here at Cherrywood, the Bocce Ball players; families and friends; seem to share a special bond. If you dont believe me, come out on Saturdays at 7:30 and see for yourself. It was great to see so many of our new residents becoming a part of this community and it was a privilege to be part of this event.Special needsRecently one of our neighbors passed away. What made this case particularly tragic was that the person who lived alone was deceased about three weeks before being discovered. There is no reason for this to happen again. On Wednesday morning July 17 at 8:30 a.m., the CERT Team will be holding a special conference at their regular meeting. (See CERT Training article in this column) The Community Emergency Response Team already has a list of some of our residents with special needs to receive assistance during time of natural disasters but what about individual disasters? At their meeting, different plans will be discussed and ideas shared on how to keep those of us who live alone safer and more secure in our homes. David Siegel, a team leader with CERT, is taking this project on. If you live alone, you are invited and encouraged to attend this meeting. In addition, a representative of each of the many clubs and organizations here at Cherrywood are also invited to come to Tai Chi Instructor Art Stalbow and star pupil Suzi Everlove.

Now please dont take my remarks as a criticism of the movie house, which will not be named, but only as a personal observation of our times. First, we paid the senior citizen price for tickets to get in. That was $7.50 each so I can only assume that the regular price would be at least a dollar more.

Now please dont take my remarks as a criticism of the movie house, which will not be named, but only as a personal observation of our times. First, we paid the senior citizen price for tickets to get in. That was $7.50 each so I can only assume that the regular price would be at least a dollar more. We then went to the refreshment counter because my bride likes popCHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 Residents enjoying the pool after Bocce Party.

corn and in reality, except for a few exceptions like me, who doesnt? We waited in line while a woman and what I presumed were her three young children choose and paid for their vast assortment of treats. Finally it was my turn and I approached the clerk behind the counter. Immediately the young man turned away and began replacing the popcorn in the popper and adjusting the Slurpee like drink machine. Behind me the line grew a bit longer and I could sense, a bit less patient. When the clerk returned I ordered a small bag of popcorn. He then returned to the popcorn machine and waited while the kernels burst forth falling delicately into the bin. With professional expertise, he scooped up the white morsels and filled a small paper bag complete with red stripes on it. Six dollars, he smiled at me. After picking up my jaw from the glass case in front of me, I paid the money and escorted my wife towards the theater. Once inside, we found a couple of seats and proceeded to watch no less than 20 minutes of previews and ten minutes of instructions on how to behave in the movie house. I was nearly asleep when our film finally began. After the show, I left the building with an increased sympathy for that mother of three who was in front of us at the refreshment stand. How do young people with children afford to go out for an evening to the show? After seeing the previews of the Lone Ranger and similar flicks designed for youngsters, I then wondered why young people with children would go to the movies at all. Not including gas, it was $21 bucks for me and the missus to watch a twohour movie. Had I gotten the M&Ms I wanted; it might have been closer to $30. It sure makes me appreciate Movie Night at Cherrywood where we can watch a first class movie on a big screen and enjoy free popcorn and drinks. If you have suggestions, comments or opinions about anything in the Cherrywood section of the Citizen, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Its always good to hear from you. this meeting. Getting the word out to everyone is vitally important and this is one way of doing just that. At the meeting, each individual can present ideas of notification methods so that singles can let neighbors know they are alright; having neighbors checking in regularly on those living alone; and methods of providing timely assistance for anyone who might be in danger. Please make arrangements to attend this very important meeting and please inform your group or club to have a person attend who can relay the information to your members and fellow residents. We compliment David on his work and hope that this worthwhile and informative meeting will be well attended by all of our concerned residents here at Cherrywood.Ladies LuncheonJuly 10 at noon our ladies will be meeting again in the clubhouse for another wonderful social luncheon. Everyone is asked to bring a dish to pass along with their own place setting. These lunches are special in that it gives our ladies a chance to socialize and have a delicious, relaxing meal with friends and neighbors. About 30 people attended the previous luncheon so that is why the ladies are continuing to have them. The more the merrier as they say. The vast majority of our ladies are excellent cooks so you can be assured that there will be plenty of good food available. Dont miss out on this fun time.100 Days of Summer FestMonday evening, July 15, the second event in our 100 Days of Summer series will take place at the clubhouse with theFriday, July 5, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, July 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com According to About.com, Tai Chi is a self healing system of slow, graceful exercises that combine movement; meditation and rhythmic breathing to improve the flow of Chi which is thought to prevent illness and improve well being. Preliminary research suggests that Tai chi may reduce stress, lower blood pressure and help older adults by improving posture, balance, muscle tone, flexibility and strength. Cherrywood residents are fortunate in that we have a new, immensely qualified, Tai Chi instructor to provide classes every Monday at 4 p.m. in the clubhouse. Recruited by our regular fitness instructor Dr. Deb Rivera, Art Stalbow provides students with expert instruction in the art of Tai Chi. Beginning his career in the martial arts, Art is a black belt in Aikido and Tae Kwon Do. He progressed from those self defense methods into the healing forms of natural medicine to become a Master Instructor in several of the healing disciplines including Tai Chi. To list his qualifications and certificates would take this entire column but suffice it to say we would be hard pressed to find anyone with a more thorough background or more teaching credentials than Art. Among his many other credits, Art has written six e-books on health and healing. His style is smooth and easy with concise movements and concentration; clear instructions and directions; all presented with a sense of humor. Art provides his students with individual attention and like Deb, never pushes people beyond their limits. Patiently he encourages his students to strive for personal well being and satisfaction. Before moving to Florida five years ago, Art and his wife Mary Beth lived in the Hudson Valley area of New York where he ran two Martial Arts facilities. Art loves Florida and loves teaching. From the reaction of his dozen or so students last Monday, they love him too. A better, healthier life style is available to all here at Cherrywood for free. Both men and women are welcome and can enjoy what Tai Chi has to offer. Be sure to tell Art how glad we are to have the Art of Tai Chi.Attention bowlersWhile it may seem like a quite a while until September, time passes quickly and our bowling league is in need of a president and a treasurer. There are plans that have to be made; reservations set with the bowling alley and a million other details that need to be handled. If you are a bowler and want to see our fun, unsanctioned league conThe art of Tai Chi being taught at Cherrywood Cherrywood John Everlove tinue, we need you or some one you know that is willing to step up to the foul line and take this task on. Talk it over with your friends and fellow bowlers during the next few days and then contact Geri if you would be interested in helping solve this dilemma. We have a great number of residents who enjoy bowling as a regular part of their active social life and physical well being. We need individuals and maybe even a committee to organize and keep this great activity a part of Cherrywood. Bocce players have a ballOn Saturday, June 29, our Bocce Ball players led by Jay and Fred OHern had a very special evening. Jay and Fred provided pulled pork sandwiches for the group and everyone brought a dish to pass. As an added treat, Rich Becotte provided music and more than 50 people had a great time. The food ranged from potato and macaroni salads to fruit dishes of melons; grapes and blueberries. Assorted cheeses, cole slaws of many varieties and other goodies filled the three tables. Home made desserts of every flavor gave a perfect finish to the hearty meal. While Rich played music in the background, guests socialized; swam in the pool; played bocce and danced. It was a night of warm fellowship shared by a large group of our residents in the beauty of the clubhouse complex. Following the meal and the evening of fun and friendship, everyone went to work cleaning up and putting everything in its place. Many got to take a few things home to enjoy later in the evening or the next day. Thanks to all of them for their help. While typical of the many fun events here at Cherrywood, the Bocce Ball players; families and friends; seem to share a special bond. If you dont believe me, come out on Saturdays at 7:30 and see for yourself. It was great to see so many of our new residents becoming a part of this community and it was a privilege to be part of this event.Special needsRecently one of our neighbors passed away. What made this case particularly tragic was that the person who lived alone was deceased about three weeks before being discovered. There is no reason for this to happen again. On Wednesday morning July 17 at 8:30 a.m., the CERT Team will be holding a special conference at their regular meeting. (See CERT Training article in this column) The Community Emergency Response Team already has a list of some of our residents with special needs to receive assistance during time of natural disasters but what about individual disasters? At their meeting, different plans will be discussed and ideas shared on how to keep those of us who live alone safer and more secure in our homes. David Siegel, a team leader with CERT, is taking this project on. If you live alone, you are invited and encouraged to attend this meeting. In addition, a representative of each of the many clubs and organizations here at Cherrywood are also invited to come to Tai Chi Instructor Art Stalbow and star pupil Suzi Everlove.

RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comThe OTOW Lions Club held its installation of officers dinner on June 25. Following a buffet dinner, the following officers were installed: President Richard Spahn; 1st Vice President Wendy Phillips; 2nd Vice President Martha Schley; Secretary Dolores Conant; Treasurer Ana Wright; Tail Twister Jerry Schneider; Lion Tamer Peter Dodd; Membership Chair Estelle Clark; and Immediate Past President Ralph Mills; 2nd Year Directors Eloise Jurgens and John Redden; 1st Year Directors Michael Topf and JJ Johnson. The following members were honored for their service: Fundraiser of the Year Award Estelle Clark; Quarter-Century Membership Certificate Ron Niebo; Lions Diabetes Awareness Foundation of MD-35 Martha Schley and Wendy Phillips. Joan Greve was awarded the Lion of the Year certificate and plaque. Additionally, Sarah Tooher assisted with the unveiling of a special plaque which was placed on the Lions podium in memory of her husband, William Tooher. The plaque reads, In Memory of PDG William H. Tooher, November 21, 1930-March 04, 2012. Outgoing President Ralph Mills thanked club members for their hard work, nothing the many activities that were conducted in service to those in our society who are in need of a helping hand. Incoming President Richard Spahn then spoke to the membership about what it means to be a Lion and stressed the need to work together to achieve the ambitious goals of the 2013-2014 fiscal year. OTOW Lions install officers Nobody can say I did not warn the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, for all the good my warning did. I am not one to say, I told you so, but I told you so. I swear, at times I think my wife thinks I do not want to do something simply because I am too lazy. Nine times out of 10 it may be true, but what about that tenth time? What women need to understand is when their husband does not do something; there may be a good, logical reason behind it. The problem men have is articulating their perfectly good and logical reason to their better half. Trust me on this one, ladies. There are excellent reasons your husband does not always do what you request of him. I wish someone would explain this to my wife. It is just hard for us to explain it in terms women can understand. Last week, for example, my wife made a request of me. She said, Honey ... Whenever my wife begins a sentence with Honey, I know I am in for a sticky situation. Honey comes from bees and whenever she so addresses me, I know I be in trouble, and you can be sure there is a stinger in it for me somewhere. My wife was looking out the window with her arms folded, which means she is thinking about some job around the house for Yours Truly. Then she said, Honey, dont you think you should wash the car? If I live to be a hundred, that thought never crossed my mind. Do you know how much trouble it is to wash my car? Then, it never fails to rain right after I wash the car and have to wash it all over again. That was on Tuesday and I said to my wife, You know, Dear, whenever a husband so addresses his wife, it always means he is trying to find some way out of doing her request, while making it sound like he wants to do it. I said, You know, Dear, its a wonderful idea but it looks like it might rain. The key to this point is to put on a grimace and look up in the sky, in a thoughtful frame of mind. Yes, I think I saw a raindrop. It wont be long now. Right here is where most men fail. Simply because the first round is over does not mean, by any stretch of the imagination, the issue is put to rest. I can sum up the next move in one word vamoose. In other words, disappear. Remember the old saying, Out of sight, out of chores? Find something to get you out of the line of fire. There is always a chance slim though it is the Missus will get busy with something else and forget. By Thursday, I forgot the car washing idea and was standing around our living room looking out the window. It seemed harmless enough. Have you heard the old saying, An idle husband is a wifes workhorse? I heard those familiar words beginning with Honey ... And a streak of panic flowed through my body, freezing up every muscle I still had. Honey, our car really needs a good washing. Now, that was bad enough and I think I could have worked out something else except before I could clear my throat, she added a phrase no husband wants to hear. Dont you agree? If I say, No, I am in trouble. If I say, Yes, I am in trouble. I am duped if I do not and doped if I do. How is a husband to win with the odds so stacked against him? With a feigned meekness that would make St. Francis of Assisi envious, I said what all good husbands say under similar conditions, Yes, Dear. The next three hours found me outside, vigorously washing Old Nelly. As I washed her, I could feel someone (I am not mentioning any names) watching from our living room window. The smile on my face camouflaged the clenched teeth behind it. Just as I was putting the finishing touches on the wax job, I felt something cold on the back of my neck. At first, being engrossed in my chore, I did not pay any attention to it. Then another and another and another. Then came the rain. I glanced at my freshly waxed car and saw drops of water cheerfully dancing Of course its raining; I just washed my car Out to Pastor Rev.

Marion County Fire Rescue believes that when people are informed they can make better decisions; and when it comes to fire rescue, those decisions can mean the difference between life and death. Although no family can prevent all accidents and no home is fireproof, some simple safety tips can decrease the impact fire and other emergencies have on families. Learn how to prevent fire and how to properly respond should one occur by staying after the Social for the presentation on Tuesday, July 16.Blood driveOnce again, its time to roll up your sleeves and do your part to help Floridas Blood Centers, the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals. The Big Red Bus will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot on Wednesday, July 17, to take your donation. Residents may sign up on the Blood Drive sheet hanging on the Activity Wall, or see Pat and her volunteers in the lobby the day the bus is here. Dont forget to eat a good breakfast and bring your photo ID; and, remember, you can donate blood even if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, and you only need be cancer-free for one year. Donating blood not only helps others, but it is beneficial for yourself, as well. Pat tells us that if you donate blood every other month, you may reduce your risk of heart attack by as much as 70 percent. That fact alone should bring you to the Lifestyle Center Wednesday morning on July 17. We hope to see you there!Homer Noodleman comedy/variety showHomer Noodleman returns to Marion Landing to perform his unique one-man comedy-variety show on Sunday, Aug. 11, from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Variety is the key word as Homer incorporates comedy ranging from zany and visual to stand-up patter and audience participation. He is also a highly trained vocalist, accomplished musician, ventriloquist, comedy magician and impressionist, and has performed in leading theaters and clubs throughout England. He has played many venues in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, Georgia, Florida and Canada, and has worked with stars such as Tony Orlando, Johnny Mathis, Gladys Knight and Tom Jones. He has also been the star attraction on many cruise lines. Tickets for the show are $3 each and will be on sale beginning July 16 at the Tuesday Social, in the Activities Office and at the door. Those who saw Homer last year are looking forward to his return engagement, and if you havent, this is a show you wont want to miss.New art class Our new art class is scheduled to begin on Monday, Aug. 19. This two-hour class will be held each Monday morning in the Craft Room for eight weeks and will cost a total of $40. The class will be led by a very talented art teacher from the Artist Hub in Ocala, and different mediums will be taught at the same time. So whether youre interested in oils, acrylics, watercolors or drawing, your individual needs can be accommodated. You would however be required to bring your own supplies. The sign-up sheet for the class is posted on the Activity Wall in the Lifestyle Center, and prepayment by Aug. 12 is required. Please stop by the Activities Office with your check or if you would like further information.Water exerciseStart your day out with some fun in the pool and get your exercise at the same time. Aquatic exercise provides a gentle way to exercise because the water, not your lower body, supports your weight. In addition, the buoyancy allows your joints and muscles to experience less stress, and the warmth of the water can encourage muscle and joint relaxation. Water exercises are especially beneficial if you are a senior, have arthritis or if you experience joint or muscle pain. Our Water Aerobics class meets every day at 8:45 a.m., and Aquasize meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 a.m. So remember: its gentle on joints and muscles, you have extra resistance in the water, you can exercise longer without getting overheated, and you can work multiple areas of your body simultaneouslyall good reasons to come to the pool each morning and join a class. Table TennisLooking for some indoor fun? Why not play a few games of table tennis. Table tennis, also known as ping pong, was invented in England near the end of the 19th century as a recreational activity for families or friends to play at home. It was played with simple equipment and could be a fun, fast paced activity for those without high athletic skills, strength, or endurance. Our table is now located in the Lifestyle Center for easier access and can be set up for play when no other scheduled activity is taking place. Paddles and balls are stored with the table, and the rules of the game and a sign-up sheet are available along with the equipment. Anyone wishing to play regularly should contact the Activities Office to reserve a day and time on the activity calendar.

Friday, July 5, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, July 5, 2013 www.smcitizen.com She stands majestic and proud, an enduring icon of American opportunity. Triumphantly she sings a song of welcome to ships arriving in the harbor. The Mother of Exiles, our beloved Statue of Liberty, reaches out to all who come to America in search of freedom. On the base of her pedestal are written the immortal words of a Jewish American poetess, Emma Lazarus: Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free ..Send these, the homeless, the tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door. Emma was born to a Sephardic Jewish family on July 22, 1849. She was the fourth daughter of Esther and Moses Lazarus. Her father was a wealthy sugar merchant with homes in New York City and Newport, Rhode Island. Her early education was by private tutors but her writing talent was recognized early by her father who published her first set of poems at the age of 17. After the publication of her poems, she subsequently met Ralph Waldo Emerson with whom she corresponded. He became a mentor to her and encouraged her writings. Although she was not particularly religious, her Jewish background played an important part in her poetic expression. In the Jewish Synagogue at Newport is considered an early expression of her Jewish consciousness and was published in 1871. Throughout her life, she struggled with the encumbrances of the day on women and Jewish writers. Women in those days were obliged to stick to soft subjects such as family and romance. Emma yearned to write more substantial stuff. Her most productive period was during the early 1880s with the publication of essays, letters and poems. It was in 1883 that she penned The New Colossus, the immortal sonnet that appears on the base of the Statue of Liberty. It was originally written for an auction to raise money for the statues pedestal. The inspiring words became a symbol for all immigrant groups coming to America in search of a better life. Emma, no doubt, had strong feelings for her co-religionists in Russia where many pogroms forced Jews to flee their native land. It was also at this point that she urged Russian Jews to immigrate to Palestine to establish a Jewish state and she was considered an ardent Zionist. Lazarus also wrote essays expressing her belief that assimilated American Jews should not take their status lightly and to be aware that anti-Semitism needs to be addressed whenever it rears its ugly head. She was also a proponent of American literature, claiming that American writing had its own rightful place in the literary world and that the American tradition had left its mark on the world. Lazarus exemplified a Jewish American woman straddling both cultures, Jewish and American and she used her literary prowess to this end. As we celebrate this July 4 weekend, let us pause and remember the many freedoms we have as Americans. Let us keep in mind that we are a country founded by immigrants, from Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America, all bringing to our shores skills and culture from their native lands adding to the mlange we call America. Let us remember that all have contributed to the development of the United States and all cultures have left their mark. We have received the best the world has to offer and we have taken the fruits of our immigrants and turned them into wealth and prosperity. Let the fireworks fly, the barbecues fire and the flame of liberty burn bright. Happy birthday, America!

Whether its served warm, cold, creamy, cheesy or with a splash of vinegar, the dish is a true American cookout classic. Potato salads are easy to make and even easier to pack full of flavor. Craft your own potato salad by cutting a delicious, Idahopotato into cubes with the skins still on. Boil in water for about 8 to 15 minutes, then check for doneness by piercing a cube with a fork or skewer. If the fork goes through the potato with little resistance, drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Add your favorite dressing and ingredients while the potatoes are still warm. Warm potatoes more easily absorb the delicious dressing. These decadent dishes are best eaten the day after theyre made to give the flavors time to meld. When youre ready to serve your potato salad, keep it cold by placing your serving dish in a larger bowl filled with ice. Family meals are always better with delicious, flavorful potatoes. Always look for the Grown in Idaho seal to be sure youre buy ing genuine Idaho potatoes.

Snowden and Greenwald have not aided the enemy unless the American people are the governments enemy. What they have done is embarrass the Obama administration by exposing criminal activity. For the medias defenders of power against truth, thats inexcusable.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). RICHMANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Inviting Gods wrathFather forgive them, for they know not what they do. Christ said this at his crucifixion and I pray he will say this again for America. God instituted marriage as being between a man and a woman and no Judge/Court has the authority to change it. Too many Americans now want God out of our lives, and if we keep mocking him, we will get what they ask for. It is now time for all Christians, regardless of denomination, to stand together and say no more! Preach this message from every pulpit in America that we will no longer tolerate these efforts to take God out of our American way of life. Whether you believe it or not, America was founded on Christian principles and has grown to be the greatest nation in the world because of Gods blessing. If he removes them, we will be a third world country at best. Throughout history, when Gods chosen people rebelled against him, he had no choice but to punish them for their disobedience. America is no different, but unfortunately, we now have leaders who apparently have no fear of God whatsoever and are inviting our destruction as a great nation. We have to get rid of these leaders and change our direction as a nation. There is no way a Christian can support this administration as it defies God at every turn. We cant go against Gods word without facing his wrath. All believers must stand together, now!

Friday, July 5, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 5, 2013 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Instead of being adversaries to government power (the media of Washington, D.C., are) servants to it and mouthpieces for it. So said the Guardians Glenn Greenwald, who broke the story of Edward Snowdens disclosure of NSA spying on the American people, after Greenwalds confrontation with Meet the Presss David Gregory. Greenwald neednt have limited his observation to the D.C. media. Plenty of reporters and cablenews talking heads are playing the same role in the NSA drama. Indeed, if they spent half the time investigating Obamas Big Brother operations that they spend sneering at Snowden and Greenwald, Americans might demand that the government stop spying on them. But to much of the mainstream (and not-so-mainstream) media, Snowden and Greenwald not the NSA, the Obama administration, and the supine Congress are the story a story of villainy. The examples are endless. The day after Snowden revealed himself as the whistleblower, Joe Scarborough, the former Republican congressman and host of MSNBCs Morning Joe, ordered his director to take the image of that weasel off the screen. The other day, his sidekick, Mika Brzezinski, asked, Is there anything we can do to track him down? She meant the government. Brzezinski went on to accuse Snowden of taking the job with NSA contractor Booz Allen Hamilton to screw over our government. Thats how one who speaks power to truth spins it. Snowdens service to the American people is hardly undercut by his having taken the job intending to expose government violations of the Fourth Amendment. MSNBCs self-identification as a progressive network is hard to square with its unrelenting assaults on Snowden and Greenwald, and its de-emphasis of NSA surveillance. Andrea Mitchell, who functions as the networks chief diplomatic stenographer, wondered why the NSA was hiring contractors when it could be recruiting people with the right value system from the military. (Shes forgotten that whistleblower Bradley Manning is in the military.) Chris Matthews of Hardball says that any foreign government that wont turn Snowden over to the U.S. government is no buddy of ours. MSNBC personnel routinely describe Greenwald as defensive, which apparently is their code word for people who push back at stupid questions. For example, when Gregory asked Greenwald if he could be indicted for aiding and abetting Snowden, and Greenwald asked in return how a journalist could equate reporting with criminal activity, he was treated with disdain. Gregory even questioned Greenwalds journalistic credentials, as did Paul Farhi of the Washington Post. Ive focused on MSNBC because it has so egregiously and persistently circled the wagons around the government. Its an old story: TV hosts and reporters need access to government officials, but access is jeopardized if they antagonize those officials. Better to play it safe and sneer at Snowden and Greenwald. You dont have to work for MSNBC to suck up to power. Op-ed writers from conservative David Brooks to progressive Richard Cohen have tried to portray Snowden as an alienated oddball, as though no one could have a legitimate purpose in unmasking government surveillance. (Brooks thought it relevant to write that Snowden has not been a regular presence around his mothers house for years. Really!) Pundits repeatedly refer to Snowdens having dropped out of high school, which apparently signals some serious moral or mental defect in the young man. More likely he was bored with the dull and regimented curriculum so typical of government high schools. Others have tried to read much into Snowdens stops in Hong Kong and Moscow. He might be a spy, they suggest. But wouldnt a spy have kept his identity secret while selling his information to the enemy? It doesnt occur to the pundits that Snowdens priority right now is to stay out of the clutches of the U.S. government. Snowden has no moral obligation to be a martyr. Lets not forget how Bradley Manning has been Since Im a resident of Florida, most people assume that, since Im a big sports fan, I am a fan of the Florida Gators football team. Thats not necessarily true. Yes, I do follow them. You cant help it if you watch sports shows in this area youre exposed to them all the time. In the past I had covered some Gator games when I worked elsewhere, going back to the Charley Pell era. Lately, I enjoyed watching Tim Tebow, not only for his football prowess but for the way he conducted himself. When Tebow was signed recently by the New England Patriots, I admit I longed for one chance to see that famous jump pass to Aaron Hernandez again. Alas, no jump pass for Hernandez, just a prison jump suit. There have been reports that Hernandez, already arrested for murder in Massachusetts, was being investigated for a double murder in Boston a couple of years ago. Apparently, there were also some probes into his behavior in Gainesville. If true, its a classic story of an athlete who feels entitled to live his way, with all his money, and not worry about little things such as rules. Of course, he is not the first athlete to be charged. Some of those football players who were convicted were Rae Caruth, serving 24 years for conspiracy to commit murder, with a projected release date in 2018; Darryl Henley, drug trafficking and attempted conspiracy to commit murder, with a projected release date in 2031 after a 41-year sentence; Eric Naposki, who played for the Patriots and Colts in the 1990s, was arrested for an older murder and is serving life without parole; Robert Rozier, St. Louis Cardinals, convicted of multiple murders, put in witness protection after testifying against someone else, but then passed 29 bad checks and was convicted under the third strike law and sentenced to life; and a guy most people know, Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens, who was convicted of obstruction in a plea deal in a murder case where he testified against two others, who were acquitted. And, of course, theres O.J. Simpson, who was convicted of robbery and kidnapping, but acquitted of murdering his wife and another man. According to Wikipedia, no other sport comes close to having this many athletes involved in murder. You have to wonder if some football players cant separate the violence on the field from their personal lives. So the lesson here is obvious, especially to adults, and needs to be conveyed to children: Choose your heroes carefully. Just because a guy can catch a pass, block downfield or get a lot of tackles and sacks doesnt make him a model human being. Check deeper into his background before you jump on the bandwagon honoring a superstar. That star could end up in a Massachusetts jail, already dropped by his team, waiting to see what his future will be.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Of course, by now most of you have recognized that these are the original signers of the Declaration of Independence, which was put forth on July 4, 1776. We celebrate this date as the founding of our nation 237 years ago, the date when our forefathers sought to get away from the tyrannical rule of Great Britain. Many Americans enjoy this freedom by protesting actions by our government. Whether you agree with the protests or not, its because of the 56 men listed above that we have the right to speak out against actions of the government. If you think thats a right thats shared across the world, just look at Egypt, Syria, China and other places. A lot of people who speak out against those governments manage to mysteriously disappear, or they surface in a government prison. So even if you dont like some of the things that are happening with our leaders, be grateful that you can speak publicly, and remember that these men were among those responsible for our freedoms of today.

ELIZABETH STREET By Laurie Fabiano In this historical fiction, the American roots of an Italian immigrant family are closely examined. The heart of the story begins in the early 1900s when a young widow crosses the Atlantic from Scilla, Calabria to the teeming, noisy, and noxious lower East Side of New York City. Here circumstances test her strength and courage as her family struggles against extortion from the notorious Black Hand (the precursor of the Mafia). Poor, mostly illiterate Italians in the neighborhood either pay the thugs or face the consequencesoften the firebombing of their stores. The most obvious explanation for this passivity is surely the fear of police imported with them from Italy. For her part Giovanna first fears the Black Hand enough to pay them but later defies the organization along with her second husband, a store owner. Giovanna is based on Fabianos great-grandmother and heroes like the crusading cop Lieutenant Petrosini and villains like Lupo the Wolf are drawn from real life. The author interviewed her own mother (one of Giovannas daughters) with video camera rolling and learned of the mothers cliff-hanging kidnapping when she was only 17. This and a bulging archive of documents empowered the author to map out the family saga. What Fabiano lacked were the actual conversations that took place on these momentous occasions. And Bookmark Pat Wellington Examining the roots of Italian immigrants herein lies the weakness of the novel. Her invented dialogues simply dont ring true. The author was well along in developing her book when on September 11, 2001 she found herself in New York City and was injured in a stampede of people when the tragedy hit. At that point she could only focus on her husband and daughter. For that reason she did not write again for an entire year. But what compelled her to finish the novel was the hope that it would be healing to the many Italians whose ancestors were terrorized by the Black Hand. Book worms who love to immerse themselves in a multigenerational book should find Elizabeth Street their cup of tea. Marions Most Wanted LaQunda S.

The researchers have no idea where the species originated, and are appealing to the general public, as well as the rest of the scientific community for any information that would help identify the insect. They are anxious to identify what weevil lurks in the shorts of men.Gone to potWhen a smugglers boat was sighted by the Coast Guard, the crew dumped all their pot overboard, and it washed up on an island populated by sea gulls, terns, and other birds.

Since then I have been thinking about all sorts of flying things. So, todays Pun Alley is for the birds, butterflies and bugs.Fair weather foulWhen the Madrid Zoo wanted to add whooping cranes to their menagerie they found they could make a trade with the San Diego Zoo for a species of Wildebeest. Arrangements were made to trade the cranes. The birds were dispatched via airfreight. However, when they arrived at the Madrid Airport, it was very cold and the birds refused to disembark. It was reported to the zoo director that the cranes in Spain stay mainly on the plane.Bird in the bushA hiker was trekking through the Ocala National Forest and came upon a baby bald eagle that had fallen from the nest. The bird didnt seem well at all, but the hiker tried to help by placing the weak baby bird on a nearby branch. Unfortunately a forest ranger tracked him down and charged him with Ill eagle in tree.BuggedWhen the great Charles Darwin was visiting the country house of a friend, the two boys of the family thought they would play a trick on the scientist. They caught a butterfly, a grasshopper, a beetle, and a centipede, and out of these evolved a strange composite insect. They took the centipedes body, the butterflys wings, the grasshoppers legs, and the beetles head, glued them carefully together and presented it to Darwin for identification. Darwin looked at the bug and then at the boys. Did you notice whether it made a humming sound when you caught it, boys? he asked. Yes, they answered. Then, said Darwin, with a twinkle in his eye, its a hum-bug.PeepsIve never seen a butterfly cry, but Ive seen a moth bawl. Two attractive female birds were showing off in front of some males. Both had spent two hours at the hairdresser, but it was the curly bird that got the perm. Joes wife does the best bird imitations. She watches him like a hawk. A travel agency was offering a trip to the Atlantic coast to view and study shore birds. They billed it as Gull Lovers Travels. The two bedbugs that fell in love got married in the spring. Some visitors ignored the Please dont feed the birds sign at the zoo and were arrested for contributing to the delicacy of a mynah. The pet store had a bird contest with no perches necessary. A friend has two ducks that he uses as an alarm clock. They wake him up at the quack of dawn. The birdhouse was named home tweet home. A bird watcher had a mynah problem but with no egrets. If you eat caterpillars you will get butterflies in your stomach.Keepers weepersAt the Palatka aviary one of the keepers jobs was to put locks on the birdcages each night the Bald Eagles, the tropical Toucans, the Marbled Godwits, and the Bay Gulls. One evening he missed a cage as he had skipped by the Bay Gulls enclosure, and they had escaped. He lost his job because he forgot to put locks on the Bay Gulls.

FORUMCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 felony possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. His bond was set at $5,500 and he was also released a few hours after being arrested. According to a report from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, a deputy on patrol spotted a vehicle pulling out of Waffle House at State Road 40 and the Interstate allegedly without stopping at the stop sign. Windows were tinted too dark, according to the report. The car was stopped after the vehicle made a u-turn and tried to get on the southbound ramp of Interstate 75. The deputy said that the driver, Greene, advised his license was suspended. The deputy wrote that there was a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. A computer check showed the drivers license was suspended on Jan. 30, 2013, for being a habitual offender. He was placed under arrest. Another deputy, who had arrived at the scene, told Jackson to get out of the car, and wrote in his report that he observed a clear bag containing green leafy substance falling out of the co-defendants shorts. The deputy picked up the bag and noticed a smaller plastic bag with a white granular substance within the larger bag. He field tested the substance which came back positive for marijuana. Jackson was then placed under arrest. The report reads that during a search of the car, the first deputy found two blue round pills on the drivers seat and they were identified as oxycodone.

Property appraiser, tax collector let locals know how things work BY JIM CLARK EditorResidents of the Southwest 200 Corridor got to meet a couple of Marion County constitutional officers and learn how their departments work at a seminar put on by the League of Women Voters at Master the Possibilities at On Top of the World. This month, the two attendees were Villie Smith, the countys property appraiser, and George Albright, tax collector. Smith had a visual presentation talking about his duties and some of the results of his 17 years in office. After being elected in 1996, he has not had opposition in his bids for re-election every four years. He listed the duties of the appraiser as determining the value of real and personal property, noting that there are about 265,000 real property parcels and 20,000 tangible personal property items in the county. They are all reappraised annually. The countys population was 70,000 in 1970, and is now about 340,000. The number of deeds peaked in 2007 during a construction boom, but numbers have dropped since then. The taxable value in the county was $27 billion in 2007, but is now $14 billion. He spoke of the distribution of taxes, showing that the schools are the largest beneficiary of property taxes at 41 percent. Municipalities get only 8 percent. Albright spoke about his position as tax collector, two which is he was first elected in 2004. He noted that he, the appraiser and the county clerk all worked closely together. The tax collectors work is backed up electronically every day and stored in two different locations. The tax collector is now responsible for driver licenses and tags. He said he has worked to expanding the offices throughout the county, and has tried to improve service by having all employees cross-trained in all facets of his office. He also said that when people call his office for help, the calls go to a call center where those answering the phones are dedicated to helping the public. The clerks at the windows serving the walk-up public no longer have to be interrupted by phone calls. Also, each clerk can perform any of the duties of his office. He also noted that people born in Florida can get a birth certificate through his office locally. Albright also produced a handout with some statistics. There are 273,572 licensed drivers in Marion County as of January 2013, and there are 359,875 registered vehicles. Two Wildwood men face various drug-related charges after their vehicle was stopped early Monday, July 1. Michael Allen Greene, 31, of Lemon Street, was accused of driving with license suspended as habitual offender and possession of a controlled substance (oxycodone). His bond was set at $7,000 and he was released a few hours after his arrest. James Wendell Jackson, 20, of Jackson Street, was accused of George Albright Villie Smith Stand Your Ground at Friday ForumStand Your Ground Is Floridas law necessary to ensure the individuals inalienable right to self-defense or does it encourage the escalation of gun violence and a return to the law of the jungle? The Friday Forum which next meets July 12 at 11:30 a.m. at Buffet City, State Road 200 and MLK Jr. Blvd., will explore the moral and legal ramifications of this legislation with its principal author, State Rep. Dennis Baxley, who will be joined in an examination of conflicting aspects of Stand Your Ground by two local lawyers John Moxley, retired elder law attorney and long time member of the Marion County Democratic Executive Committee, and Cynthia Tolbert, immigration and family law practitioner who last year sponsored a forum on The New Jim Crow.
