BRIEFS Medicare rules for signing upBY CAROL CLARK Shine CounselorAt age 65, and once you have worked and obtained 40 earnings credit quarters (approximately 10 years), you become eligible for premium-free Medicare Part A hospital coverage. If you chose to begin receiving Social Security benefits before age 65, then you will automatically receive your Medicare ID Card about three months before your 65th birthday. If you have waited for full retirement age to apply for Social Security benefits, then you will need to contact the Social Security Administration and apply for a Medicare ID Card about three months before your 65th birthday. You can easily complete this process by phone or online at www.socialsecurity.gov. Its a good idea to take a look at this website. You might be surprised what you can accomplish from the comfort of your home or office. When your Medicare ID Card arrives, it will state Part A (Hospital Coverage) and Part B (Medical Coverage), with an Effective Date for each type of insurance coverage. If you already have alternate medical coverage through your or your spouses employer, then you may not need Part B (Medical Coverage) at this time. If this is the case, you can simply return the entire Medicare ID Card to the Social Security Administration and request a new Medicare ID Card with just Part A (Hospital Coverage). Be sure to double-check with your Social Security benefits administrator to make sure that you do not have to take Part B when you turn 65. In 2013, Part B coverage has a monthly INDEX Bookmark..............................26 Cherrywood.........................16 Classifieds.............................30 Judis Journal.......................10 Marion Landing..................14 Oak Run.................................20 OTOW.....................................23 Out to Pastor........................13 Pun Alley...............................22 Puzzles...................................25CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & BusinessesFRIDAY, JULY 19, 2013 VOLUME 18 NUMBER 8 www.smcitizen.com32~ Friday, July 19, 2013 www.smcitizen.com BY JIM CLARK EditorMiami developer Enrique Suarez has obtained his zoning change, but faces a long list of conditions and got a stern warning from one Marion County commissioner. At the zoning portion of Tuesdays County Commission meeting, the board approved the request of Suarez to zone more than 50 acres as a planned unit development (PUD), a switch from the current R-1 (residential) zoning. The property is north of Alejandria Estates, east of Cherrywood, south of Meadow Glenn and west of Woods and Meadows. The change would allow smaller lot sizes, enabling Suarez to build on 219 lots, as small as 6,000 square feet. Under the R-1 zoning, the minimum lot size is 10,000 square feet. Commissioner David Moore objected, asking for a compromise of 8,000 square feet, but no other board member took him up on it, and the zoning change passed, 4-1. Commissioners reminded the audience that under R-1, Suarez could start building immediately. He would have to have the larger lot sizes, but would not face any of the restrictions imposed by county officials. Chairman Kathy Bryant told the crowd that they might be better off with the PUD zoning. A town meeting was conducted by Suarez on Friday, July 12, at the Freedom Public Library. The overflow crowd at the library meeting rooms got Suarez to agree to some of the conditions, and these were incorporated Tuesday in the final motion. The crowd was considerably smaller at Tuesdays meeting, and the rhetoric, for the most part, was toned down, although some continued to object, and others complained about items that Suarez had already agreed to fix. Among the conditions laid down as part of the zoning change were building of a privacy fence behind the recreation area at the south end, which adjoins Alejandria Estates; A -11 gate only at the north end of Alejandrias 56th Avenue, which would only be used for emergency vehicles; participation in sign funding for Alejandria Estates, conducting a traffic study and a possible signal at the corner of 100th Street and 62nd Avenue Road, which would be the main entrance to the development; compliance with the countys new Land Development Code; and variCounty OKs zoning change Developer given conditions PHOTO BY JIM CLARKEnrique Suarez speaks at Fridays town meeting. BY PRISCILLA GEISSAL Special to the CitizenOn Monday afternoon, July 15, at about 2 p.m., Curry Andrews, 94, of Fairfield Village, walked down the sloping driveway to his mailbox. As he was walking back up toward his home, he heard a crack and stepped back just in time to see half the huge tree in his front lawn fall directly in his path. The tree split in a gust of wind, Andrews said, And just came crashing down I think I was very blessed not to have been hit. The house can be replaced somehow. Thank goodness my neighbor, Tony Lucas, was outside too, because the tree hit his house also. Both Lucas and Andrews are counting their blessings, although both home were extensively damaged. Neighbors flocked to help the 94year-old Andrews, who is described by a neighbor as just the sweetest man you could ever want to know. Andrews was featured a little over a year ago, highlighting his work in raising funds for the March for Babies, formerly the March of Dimes.

ous privacy fences and buffers around the property. After members of the crowd spoke, Bryant asked staff members for the answers to some of the questions and gave some answers herself. Suarez had talked about the possible upgrading of 56th Avenue, and had mentioned prorating the cost. Alejandria residents had taken that to mean they would have to pay, but Suarez said he was talking about costsharing among those in his development. Bryant commented that Suarez has no authority to do anything and pro-rate the charge. It ended up with the county going back to get a figure and then obtaining a one-time payment from Suarez. One speaker had noted that at the Friday meeting, Suarez had changed the number of lots from 222 to 290, and staff members agreed that this is what they heard. However, Suarez, who speaks with a heavy accent, said that he said and not 290. Suarez was supposed to have a new plan and engineering prior to the town meeting, but this had not been done. When discussing the motion to approve, Commissioner Stan McClain warned, I encourage you to get your work done and live up to his deadlines with the county. Suarez now has to come back in six months with more detailed plans, which the county will review, before he can move to the construction level. Bryant told him and the audience, There are a lot of issues that are going to have to be resolved.

That premium amount can change, and even increase, because it is based upon your income. You are eligible to enroll three months before and up to three months after your birth month. Please note that there is a penalty for not enrolling once you are eligible. There are so many variables and exceptions to the rules and regulations of Medicare, that it will greatly benefit you to contact a SHINE counselor once you receive your Medicare ID Card (Florida Elder Helpline at 1-800-963-5337). Medicare Part D (Prescription Coverage) also has a penalty if you do not enroll during the same time frame required for Part B, even if you are not currently taking any prescriptions. However, if you already have creditable drug insurance coverage, you may wait until you or your spouse stop working, at which time you then have 63 days to choose and enroll in a drug plan without a penalty. If you ever move out of the insurance coverage area of a Medicare Advantage Plan or Part D drug plan, you also have a special enrollment period. Call the Florida Elder Helpline at 1-800-963-5337 if you have questions regarding Medicare, are experiencing problems with your insurance coverage or to schedule a SHINE presentation for your group so you will be well equipped for Medicares Open Enrollment Period (October 15 until December 7).

On Top of the World had almost perfect weather at the time of the fireworks on July 4, which started a few minutes before 9 p.m. The cloud cover was too low for the sky divers but high enough so that the fireworks could be seen by residents. The ground was wet but no more rain came down. Those who left early missed a good display. There were also food vendors on the street. Face painting was being done under a canopy near the food vendors. The music was provided by the 2nd Slice Band. Other entertainment was provided by two people on long stilts. The man was dressed like Uncle Sam and the lady had a short skirt. Both were able to bend down to kids level to chat with them. Marking the 4th at OTOW Residents, guests and children had a good time dancing to the live music by the 2nd Slice Band. This lady on long stilts entertained the audience while it eagerly awaited the start of the fireworks. View of the fireworks going off from the Candler Hills golf course driving range.

In 1864 he welcomed the 166th Ohio Regiment to the White House with words meant to drive home justification for the Civil War: It is in order that each of you may have through this free government which we have enjoyed, an open field and a fair chance for your industry, enterprise, and intelligence . that we may not lose our birthright. The nation is worth fighting for, to secure such an inestimable jewel. This theme was far from mere patriotic pap. Rather, it spoke of a belief embedded in the marrow of his bonesthat the American Dream must be available to all. History books tend to romanticize Lincolns humble roots and railsplitting. But as Lowry points out Lincoln actually hated finding himself on societys bottom rung. Enlisted in every job imaginable from cutting corn, digging wells, and butchering hogs, he labored under a sense of injustice. Having to turn over his wages to his father was a sore point. As a basic matter of justice a person deserved to keep what he earned, our 16th president believed. According to Lowry Lincolns vision was of a free, dynamic, industrialized society full of opportunity. In fact, the author frequently refers to Lincoln as the apostle of opportunity whose reverence for the Founding Fathers and the Declaration of Independence keeps drawing us back to the deepest principles of our republic. To an aspiring lawyer Lincoln once said, Work, work, work, is the main thing. But Lowrys critics object to his recreating Lincoln in his own conservative image. And they point to the weakness of his defense of Lincolns war policies. After all, more Americans died in the Civil War than in any other war. And when Lowry conducted promotional interviews, his critics found a way to mock him by saying that now that hed written the book, he was a mindreader. Here are some samples: He certainly would have loved the Tea Party (interview with Ed Driscoll). In contrast to todays debt-obsessed GOP, Lincoln was solutions focused (on Morning Joe). Recommended for history buffs and those who cant read enough about Lincoln.

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. For more information and for an application, contact Bob Conn, Trainer, at 352-812-0853.

Waterfall renovation dedicationMarion County MSTU/Assessment and the Marion Oaks General Services Advisory Council invite local residents to partake in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Marion Oaks waterfall renovation project at 2 p.m. on July 23, 2013, at the main entrance to Marion Oaks (intersection of County Road 484 and Marion Oaks Boulevard, Ocala). The waterfall, for years a landmark at the main entrance to the southern Marion community, was repaired as part of the project and will be maintained under Marion Oaks MSTU for general services. The move stemmed from community support for the project and a program partnership with MSTU/Assessment following the waterfalls shutoff in 2008 by previous management. 000FJ8Y COMPUTER REPAIR COMPUTER PROBLEMS SOLVED Your home or business 7 days a week.

Friday, July 19, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 19, 2013 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenFrom the beginning, people who would ban all private guns if they could have used the George Zimmerman case to push their agenda. They push on two fronts: First, they argue that Zimmermans 2012 fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, who had no gun, demonstrates that guns are an unmitigated evil. Second, the antigun lobby is using the case to agitate for the repeal of stand your ground laws, which are on the books in many states. It is hard to see how this case, in which Zimmerman was acquitted of murder and manslaughter, condemns gun ownership or concealed carry. Zimmerman claims he shot Martin in self-defense. The prosecution was unable to impeach that claim. Its true that Martin had no gun and Zimmerman did. For many people, this in itself proves that Zimmerman used his gun unjustifiably, hence demonstrating that guns are bad per se. But that makes no sense. Are we to believe that a gun is the only means of threatening a person with death or serious injury? People were killed by a variety of means before guns existed, including fists. So there is no prima facie case that a gun was used improperly merely because the person shot had no firearm. (In the murder case, the jurors apparently believed Zimmermans account that Martin knocked him down with a sucker punch to the face, then sat on his chest, banging his head against the pavement.) Thus the Zimmerman case furnishes no ammunition pun intended for gun controllers. How could a justifiable homicide the jurys finding provide evidence for banning or restricting guns? We may go further and note that even a guilty verdict would have been no grounds for gun control. No matter what gun laws are on the books, bad guys will always get firearms. Gunrunning is as old as guns themselves. It is only the innocent who would be without guns, and that means more murders, more rapes, more assaults. The answer to gun violence is not to deprive the innocent of guns. Lets move on to stand your ground laws. Many states have passed these laws to clarify the law of self-defense. It is an old principle that one may use deadly force to defend ones life (or other innocent life) in ones own home. In other words, one has no duty to retreat. Elsewhere, however, there is a general duty to retreat. If you are threatened but can get away safely, the law requires you to do so rather than confronting the threat. This rule presumably evolved to prevent escalation of violence and to preserve the peace. The stand your ground principle clarifies things by holding that if one cannot retreat safely from a deadly or other serious threat when away from home, one may use deadly force to counter the threat. Thats all it does. It does not permit one to shoot someone else casually with impunity. You may be asking what this has to do with George Zimmerman. The answer is nothing. Zimmerman did not invoke stand your ground after the shooting last year. He could have asked for a hearing on the matter, but he did not. (Had he prevailed in that hearing, there would have been no murder trial.) The reason Zimmerman did not invoke the principle is obvious: His account of events rules out stand your ground. Remember, he claims that Martin knocked him down with a blow and then sat on his chest beating him. If youre on the ground, you cant stand your ground. Ironically, Martins actions look more like a case of stand your ground. The prosecutions account is that Martin saw Zimmerman following him. The residence to which Martin was walking was a short distance away, but instead of retreating for protection, he ended up in the deadly altercation. Why? If he felt he could not retreat safely, then he was standing his ground when he confronted Zimmerman. Stand your ground is reasonable law. The Zimmerman case provides no reason to repeal it.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). When my father died back in 2004, I had no idea there was a quarterly reading of names at Veterans Memorial Park every three months. In that reading, the list of every veteran who died in the previous three months is read aloud, a ceremonial bell is rung twice after each name, and there is a continuous drum roll while the names are being articulated. The ceremony also includes the singing of God Bless America, the bugling of Assembly and Taps, and a 21-gun salute. If I had known nine years ago, I would have found a way to be there. Its a final goodbye to the men and women who served their country, whether in peace or war, whether at home or abroad. These are not necessarily people who died in action, or who dedicated their whole lives to the military, just ordinary people who said goodbye to the comforts of home and family to go, in some cases, far away to uphold the honor of the United States of America. You dont have to have lost a veteran to attend. Its outdoors, and a little hot and humid at this time of year, but its worth it just to go and listen, and look at the faces around you. Some who attend are regulars, but you can tell that some are there for the first time, probably because the name of a loved one is about to be read. Those are the people who are not standing around in friendly conversation before the event starts; theyre just sitting there buried in their own thoughts and memories. Sheriff Chris Blair was there, but not a whole lot of county government was represented. Local military groups take turns doing the reading this time it was American Legion Post 284. Veterans Memorial Park, at the corner of East Silver Springs Boulevard and 25th Avenue, is host to many military-type honors and events. The Veterans Day ceremony, with hundreds of school children bused in, is one of the most impressive anywhere in North Central Florida. (Hopefully, school budget cuts wont prevent the attendance of the children). If youve never taken the time to explore the park, by all means do so. Wander around slowly and take a look at all the memorials scattered through the area. The paths and even the gazebo are wheelchair-friendly, too. Admittedly, theres a lot to cover, so going in the heat of the day may not be advisable at this time of year. But when you get the chance, do so, and remember that a lot of the people honored there went through a lot more than a little summer heat during their service in the military. And if you can, early in October, take in the quarterly memorial reading. Its an impressive ceremony that you will remember for a long time.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Reaping $8.8 million in savings over the past year from program revisions and staff reductions, Floridas Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) recently asked for and received approval from the states 14-member Legislative Budget Committee to use $571,961 of those savings for employee bonuses. Based on performance criteria of customer feedback and how quickly the permitting process is completed, the bonuses, ranging from $722 to $6,000, will go to 269 employees of the departments nearly 1,600-member regulatory program. The DEPs performance criteria for the bonuses even though the bonuses in question will be awarded for permit decisions already made is flawed because it sends the message that speed is more important than scrutiny. Given human nature, emphasizing speed as the standard rather than scrutiny will undoubtedly influence future permit decisions by suggesting to employees that they limit the scope and circumspection of the permitting process at the expense of the departments core mission of protecting the environment. Following Gov. Rick Scotts elimination of the Department of Community Affairs which reviewed large development plans and legislation passed in 2011 and reduced the permit review time from 90 to 60 days, rewarding employees for speeding up the permitting process particularly sends the wrong message. While efficiency is certainly an appropriate goal for the DEP, the desire to expedite bureaucracy must be balanced with the departments core mission of protecting Floridas natural resources. By utilizing flawed criteria, both the DEP and Legislative Budget Commission have apparently lost sight of the departments charge to protect, conserve and manage the states natural resources, as well as enforce its environmental laws. Given the states earlier steps backward on environmental policy, Floridians should be especially concerned that the very agency responsible for protecting our states natural resources has opted to reward employees for sacrificing in-depth review in favor of speed.Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Dont reward speed if in depth hurts Reading of deceased vets impressive Zimmerman case is no grounds for gun control READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your zeal for challenges usually works well for you. But this week its best to avoid jumping into new situations without more information. Vital news emerges by the weekend. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Once again, the Bovines patience pays off as that pesky problem works itself out without taking too much of your valuable time. A new task opens interesting possibilities. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Those suggestions you want to share need to be set aside for a while so you can focus on the job at hand. Therell be time later to put your ideas into a workable format. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be sure about your sources before you use the information in any decision you reach about your new project. Some of the data might be out of date or misinterpreted. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A challenge might rattle you at first. But pump up that strong Lions heart with a full measure of courage, and face it with the continuing support of family and friends. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Watch your expenses this week so you can have a financial cushion to fall back on should things tighten up later this month. Money matters ease by the 31st. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Uncertainty over workplace policy creates anxiety and confusion among your colleagues. Dont be surprised if youre asked, once again, to help work things out. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) The workweek keeps you busy tying up loose ends and checking data that needs to be verified. The weekend offers a chance to relax and restore your spent energies. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is not the best time to go to extremes to prove a point. Better to set a sensible goal and move forward. Therell be time later to take the bolder course. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A step-by-step progression is the better way to move ahead. Taking shortcuts could be risky. Important news arrives on the 31st. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Avoid getting drawn into workplace disputes that should be handled by those directly involved. Instead, spend your energy developing those new ideas. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You still need to be prudent about money matters. But things start to ease by the end of the week. A weekend encounter with an old friend brings welcome news. BORN THIS WEEK: You handle challenging situations with boldness when necessary and caution when called for. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR States and abortionsAfter years of opposing abortion by public witnessing, sidewalk counseling, distributing literature, holding and promoting rallies, giving and listening to motivational speeches, and many other methods of transmitting the pro-life message, we realized that the number of reported abortions continued to expand each year in spite of our best efforts. It was then that our ministry acknowledged the obvious: Only state-by-state legislation could reduce or eliminate abortion. Saving one baby at a time is following the Christian teaching of protecting the least of us by prayer, action, and compassionate support, and those who practice this method of abortion opposition are to be commended. However, 40 years of such activity has not deterred nor altered the abortion of millions of unborn children which should be our cardinal consideration. Since the year 2011 we have witnessed a reversal in thinking by many state legislators and these reversals have had a positive impact on the agenda of the pro-life community. It can be debated whether these reversals were politically motivated or for more lofty reasons. Reported abortion numbers are still at an all-time high, but as limitations on abortion become law in many states, logic suggest that future abortion numbers will decrease. In 2011, Florida passed five significant pro-life laws including the important sonogram law. This same year many other states made historic progress in their victories for life.

Friday, July 19, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, July 19, 2013 www.smcitizen.com In 2012, there were more than 60 new life-affirming state laws enacted with 38 related to abortion, indicating a renewed culture of life. Even our slow-to-act media have noted the revitalization of interest in prolife legislation. To quote Mother Teresa, Abortion kills twice. It kills the body of the baby and it kills the conscience of the mother. Abortion is profoundly anti-women. Mabel Ryan Life Education Ministry, Inc. OcalaLet freedom and God ring!Believers endeavor to make life better and more meaningful for all people: believers, nonbelievers, the misguided, in the name of God. Many atheists are content to live their non-belief and allow others to practice their own beliefs. Other atheists, however, feel the need to force their non-belief on people who dont want or need it. The overwhelming majority of Americans see prayer as the answer to lifes adventures and struggles. They must be allowed to pray in churches, schools, public areas, wherever they wish. One goal of atheism is to strip away that freedom. Another goal of atheism is their version of separation of church and state. Atheists are deliberately camouflaging the principle of the First Amendment which ultimately leads to that separation. Their real objective is a deliberateswipe at religious ideas ... the very principles that America was founded on. Atheists, rather than inflicting their misbeliefs on those who dont welcome them, should be concentrating on improving the lives of others, just as believers do. American Atheists recently erected a monument in Starke, Florida; a knee-jerk reaction to a memorial that had been previously erected there by believers. And, American Atheists plan to erect 50 more monuments across America in public areas where believers have already placed memorials to celebrate their freedoms. These efforts will certainly not advance the causes of American Atheists. LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Instead, they will only serve to diminish their already tarnished image. Joe OHara OcalaLets move onIf the facts don't fit you must acquit. Yes, the verdict was correct as the state didn't prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt in a case that was politically driven and shouldn't have gone to trial to begin with. Despite that and not surprisingly, Sharpton and Jackson are out their doing their usual shtick charging up the troops. The elite media isn't helping the situation either. The truth is this tragic incident could have been avoided. Both the actions of George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin in particular led to that deadly confrontation. Let's move on.

Manna From HeavenWith the popularity of the food networks and the prevalence of foodies in our midst, it is interesting to look back in the Bible for the original perfect food, that is manna. As it is told in Exodus, the Israelites, after their freedom from bondage in Egypt, were led by Moses into the wilderness. They soon ran out of food having left Egypt in haste with little time for provisions. (Remember matzah, unleavened bread?) It was not long in typical Jewish form that the people started kvetching and wishing for the fleshpots of Egypt where they, though slaves, at least had food. God, in compassion for his people, sends down a special food called manna. While the Creator could have provided simple bread, this fine, coriander seed-like substance was found each morning on the ground under the dew. When gathered, it could be ground into flour and baked into cakes. According to the Torah, raw manna tasted like wafers made with honey (Exodus 16:31) or when baked into cakes, it tasted like cake made with oil. But what really was this marvelous substance and where did it come from? There have been some theories about the Israelites sustainable food. Most would agree that because it appears on the ground in the morning and without apparent cultivation it was something of a miracle food. Practically speaking, the manna described in the Bible was some kind of a sap from either a tamarisk tree or a camel thorn bush, both of which grow prolifically in the desert regions of the Middle East. The sap oozes out at night and dries out quickly in the hot desert sun of the morning. This is probably what the Israelites gathered for sustenance. Other authorities look at the situation in a different manner. According to the commentator, Rashi, manna could taste like anything anybody wished except like cucumbers, watermelons, leeks, onions and garlic because these could be harmful to nursing mothers. Jewish tradition also claims that manna was one of the ten things created by God at twilight on the eve of the first Sabbath of creation. Therefore it was put in place even before the Israelites complained to Moses. Another interesting fact about manna is that it tasted like any food anybody wished so that to the young it tasted like bread, the old, as wafers with honey, to infants, as mothers milk, to the sick, fine flour mingled with honey. This idea came about from a comment from Rabbi Jose who wrote about manna in the Talmud. While the events described in Exodus happened over 3,000 years ago, the remembrance of the manna still lingers in Jewish ritual today. On a traditional Sabbath table are two loaves of bread with poppy or sesame seeds sprinkled on top. This is to symbolize the double portion of manna that the Israelites received on Friday since no gathering of manna was allowed to take place on the Sabbath. The seeds were to resemble the manna, as we understand the generalized consistency of the food. Had I lived during the time of the Israelites, I would have wanted my manna to taste like chocolate. (Though I concede the cacao bean would be discovered much, much later in history) In the true spirit of tzekadah, righteousness, let us share our food with those in need in our community and be grateful for the sustenance we have been given. To me, this is the message of the manna, a marvelous food which sustained my ancestors for 40 years in the wilderness.

July is family golf month. Whoever originated this tradition must live up north. Here the ideal time for golfing is the winter months. Pun Alley has some stories from our season.Fresh start?It was a sunny morning, a little before 8, on the first hole of a busy course, and John was beginning his pre-shot routine, visualizing the upcoming shot when a piercing voice came over the clubhouse loudspeaker, Would the gentleman on the womens tee box, please back up to the mens tee, please? John simply ignored the guy and kept concentrating, when once more the man yelled, Would the man on the womens tee please back up to the mens tee? John finally stopped, turned, cupped his hands and shouted back, Would the man with the microphone kindly keep quiet and let me play my second shot?Mindful A man was playing golf with his wife who was in a talkative mood. He finally turned to her in disgust, Please dont talk so much. You are driving me out of my mind. Thats no drive, she said. Thats just a short putt. Typical The young man had just teed up on the first hole, and was getting ready to drive when a woman in a wedding dress came running toward him. She grabbed his arm and began shouting as she pulled him toward the parking lot. For heavens sake, the man screamed back, I said only if it rains. But he softened and went off to be wed. Hed learned to put the heart before the course.Short puttsThey have just developed a new golf club to be used when you are not sure which club is best. It is called the waffle iron. First golfer: I usually shoot in the low 90s. Second golfer: Kinda hot to play golf. When fore shouted twice didnt move the women on the green ahead, a fellow golfer suggested trying .98. Golf pro: Tee the ball. Novice: Sure, I see it, but why the baby talk? The reason the pro tells you to keep your head down is so you cant see him laughing. You think so much about your golf game that you dont even remember when we were married, complained the wife. I certainly do; it was the day I sunk that 85-yard putt.A wild taleA man staggered into an emergency room with two black eyes and a five iron wrapped tightly around his throat. Naturally the doctor asked him what happened. Well, it was like this, said the man. I was having a quiet round of golf with my wife, when she sliced her ball into a cow pasture. We went to look for it, and while I was rooting around I noticed one of the cows had something white at its rear end. I walked over and lifted up the tail, and sure enough, there was my wifes golf ball stuck right in the middle of the cows butt. Thats when I made my mistake. What did you do? asks the doctor. Well, I lifted the tail and yelled to my wife, hey, this looks like yours!ClubbedJudy: Whatd you buy George for his birthday? Linda: This set of golf clubs. Judy: Thats a great idea. The bag is such a pretty pink. What are those cute booties for? Linda: Oh, everybody knows that. They keep the woods covered. Judy: Well, whatre the numbers for? Linda: Dont you know anything about golf? Those numbers tell you how many times to hit the ball.Ah ha!A wife and her husband were enjoying a quiet evening when the woman inquired, If I died today, would you remarry? Im a young man, so probably, said the man. Would you let her live in this house? she asked. Well, houses are expensive these days, probably so, he replied. Would she cook in my kitchen, sleep in our bed, use our bath, and drive my car? she continued. Well, I suppose she would, he said. And would she use my golf clubs? Absolutely not! If shed use everything else, why not? Shes left-handed!

Two of the most important characteristics of hearing aids are Channels and Bands which are also some of the most misunderstood by users. To start off with, the number of channels or bands has nothing to do with the number of programs or volume settings. Sounds are processed and amplified by a hearing aid based on frequencies (or the pitch of a sound) and volumes. A peek at your audiogram will tell you how much amplification you need for any given frequency. In a nutshell, bands and channels thus determine how granular a hearing aid can process and amplify the sounds it perceives. To quote a great explanation from Philips: A band is what is used to control volume in different frequencies. This allows us to adjust more volume in a specific area of your hearing loss without effecting other areas where you might need less volume The more bands the hearing aid offers the more room we have to fit the aid to your hearing loss. Channels break up the frequency range into individual channels. This allows the hearing aid to differentiate noise from speech. The more channels the hearing aid has the more fine tuned it can be. For instance the sound of keys falling on a table, or water running in the sink may be overwhelming. When your hearing aid offers many channels we can adjust each frequency that is too loud without sacrificing the things you want to hear, like your spouse or boss. Thus, just the way a high-resolution picture gives you a sharper image, more bands and channels provide you with a more granular sound quality. More channels will provide better resolution on the frequencies and more bands will mean better resolution on the volume thus allowing your hearing aid to match your audiogram more accurately.

Friday, July 19, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, July 19, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Our country, so it seems, runs on choice. The more choices we have the better we like it. Most people in America pride themselves on the ability to make their own choices. Freedom of Choice, is the cry you hear all around our country these days. Yet, most people do not have the freedom of choice they think they have. Somebody is influencing the choices they make without them realizing they are being influenced. That is called marketing. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were watching television the other night, trying to watch a favorite TV program. Finally, from an end of the room that was not my end, came an exasperated sigh. I tried to ignore it, but you know how that works. The exasperation seemed to accelerate and I knew that if I did not acknowledge it in some way, well, I think you know what would happen. It was in the middle of some commercials and so I turned to her and said, Whats got you in such pain tonight? At her age I did not know if there was some medical something or other going on. These commercials, she moaned so painfully, I cant stand all these commercials! I must say I was a little bummed out about all the commercials myself. I think every one-hour program is devoted to 30 minutes of commercials. Most of those commercials are for things I have no interest in. Or, they are played at a very inappropriate time. It never fails if we are having our supper while watching television there are 79 commercials for diarrhea. Is this really a major problem in our country today? Getting back to my wife and the commercials, I responded as cheerfully as I could, Well, my dear, somebody has to pay for our television viewing privilege. I felt a cold yet burning stare in my direction. Cant they run those lousy commercials when Im not watching TV? Someone once said that silence is golden and right then I cultivated a golden moment. Commercials are a way in which manufacturing companies influence our choices. Every product has 100 different companies marketing the same product. I have not done too much research but the little I have done I discovered that the same company makes the same product but sells it under a different name. There are two categories of products. There is the name brand, which cost a fortune. Then there is the generic brand, which is only a fraction of what the name brand Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Apple fritter: the fruit of my choice cost. It is the same product, made by the same company, but advertised by difference venues. This is where choice comes in. Some people choose the high-priced product because they think it is better. Some of us choose the low-price product because we know better. One night as we were watching television, it seemed most of the commercials had to do with dieting of some kind. There were high calorie diets, low-carb diets and diet that really did not make sense to me. Watching all of those dieting commercials, I did not see one that I would die for. Every one of those commercials assumes everybody watching wants to lose 297 pounds. Personally, I have lost the same five pounds for over 30 years. I lose five pounds and then by golly, three weeks later I find those five pounds, at least they recognize me. Anybody can lose weight; it is all a matter of choice. Personally, I do not plan to lose any sleep because I cannot lose weight. I think it is going to be rather funny if when we go to heaven everybody is fat. Wouldnt that be something? We plummet ourselves almost to death trying to lose weight and get to heaven and everybody is fat. It all boils down to choice. It all boils down to the fact that most people think they are making their own choices. Those of us who are on the husband side of the marital equation know we do not make our own choices. Our choices are made for us by our better half. Why do you think we get married? My wife is a great one for fruit and vegetables. Every day of our life is fruit and vegetables. To mix things up a little bit one day it will be vegetables and fruit. She prepares the fruit and then invites me to make a choice. I am sure she did not see all of this in any television commercial; at least I hope she hasnt. She is proud of the display of fruit choices she has for me. She is also concerned about my diet. Much more than I am. I do not think my diet is so important that both of us should be concerned about it. If she chooses to be concerned about my diet, that is her choice. I choose to be a little more cavalier when it comes to dieting. Actually, and do not tell her I said this, but my fruit of choice is the humble Apple fritter. It has everything my heart desires and a few things my body desires, too. PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE17 LANDINGCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 Oak Run celebrated July 4th like celebrations that took place in various hometowns of many of our residents. It started with a fun patriotic dance with good music for dancing and a tribute to our military men. Wednesday the 3rd featured a jazz band, hot dogs and good old visiting with neighbors. The 4th was a great parade, with Decca security handling traffic and a cool down in the Orchid Club. There is no doubt that the folks in attendance love America showing their appreciation to the Marion County Sheriffs Fife and Drum Corps, the color guard of the Oak Run Veterans Association and a singalong with the Oak Run Troubadours.

Friday, July 19, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, July 19, 2013 www.smcitizen.com At the July 2 Tuesday Social, Board Secretary Connie Rowe presented Harry Therien with the Marion Landing Volunteer Recognition Award. She introduced Harry by saying, This month we are honoring an individual who moved here about four years ago, and hes been a very active volunteer since about day one! Besides being a bowling captain, hes a member of the set-up crew, assists the Activities Support Committee by being a preand post-inspector for private parties, and has chaired a billiards tournament. He also helps at many special events like the Sally shows and the Homer Noodleman shows, too. For quite some time, he has taken photos or videos during events and the Senior Games, except when he was our surprise Santa! Most of us dont see him for one of his commitments, because he is a member of the lock-up crew. But hes definitely here at every Tuesday Social since hes a patrol captain. It is my pleasure to present the Volunteer Recognition Award to Harry Therien. Harrys engraved plaque will join the more than 157 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents nominated for the award by their peers. If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a Board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director.Homer Noodleman showTickets are on sale now for Homer Noodlemans return performance to Marion Landing.

It began as a beatification project by Midge and Jim on the island parcel of land in the middle of their street. What had been an overgrowth of weeds was soon transformed into a garden like setting because of their hard work. Once that had been completed, Jim spoke with our Color Guard commander Gerry Moscariello suggesting that there be a place for flags to fly on patriotic holidays such as July 4; Flag Day etc. Gerry agreed and soon, thanks to Jim Lee, stands were in place and ready to receive the flags. Ever since that time, on every holiday, you can drive by the circle at Southwest 98th Place and see not only the American and POW/MIA flag, but the flags of every branch of service waving in the breeze. This project was begun as an unsolicited act of patriotism by four special people and has become a tradition. The neighborhood is more beautiful; the Armed Forces more appreciated and the American flag more honored because of them. We thank Midge; Jim; Loretta and Gerry for their work; commitment and love of country. You have helped make Cherrywood a better place to live. Cribbage ClubThanks to the leadership and guidance of Sarah Blair, our Cribbage Club is growing by leaps and bounds. Mondays at 12:30 p.m., about a dozen or so people gather in the library of the clubhouse. They divide into teams and then have a rip roaring game of Cribbage. Some are new to the game so the other players are patient in helping them learn. Other players have been at the game for years and with them, there is a bit more banter and kidding. If you are passing by the library on a Monday, you will no doubt hear loud laughter and the occasional jokes hurled at various people in the group. No need to be alarmed, its all in good fun. Stop in and join us. Sarah is working on setting up a tournament in the near future. Please keep an eye on this column to find out when that will take place. Some of our players are confident enough to start talking about a traveling league. If there are other communities that would like to play against us, please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Strictly for fun and bragging rights, theres no place like the cribbage club on Mondays.Flu shotsOn Sept. 6 from 1 until 3 in the afternoon, VaxCare will be in our clubhouse to administer winter flu shots. Most doctors recommend that senior citizens get a flu shot to prevent getting this some times fatal disease. Check with your doctor to see if you should get a shot this flu season to keep yourself healthy. Set get your name on the list with Geri and enjoy the convenience of getting your shot at the clubhouse. No need to travel outside of your community to get this immunization and that way youll be able to enjoy all that Cherrywood has to offer.

Our gals have a great time socializing and chatting at this special greet; meet and eat event. Everyone brings a dish to pass around and their own place settings and then they settle in for good conversation and camaraderie. This month more than 20 of our ladies joined in at the July get together. In addition to the excellent food, there were prizes awarded as well. Priscilla Peirce and Edie Nelson won door prizes while Mary Lou Selvitella and Ann Bardack won 50/50 drawings. The next luncheon will be at noon on Aug. 14 so make a note to be there for good times and laugher. Bring a friend with you to make it even more enjoyable. Helping kidsLong time resident Mary Johnson contacted me this week about a rare opportunity to make a difference in the lives of young people. Believe it or not, in just a few weeks the children of this area will be headed back to school and many of them need help. In our clubhouse there is a collection box for school supplies along with a list of needed items. These items include; book bags; colored pencils; crayons; notebooks; loose-leaf paper; pencils and sharpeners; note books and highlighters. We can make a difference in the lives of these students by providing them with the utensils and supplies they need to progress. Many of these youngsters come from poor or disadvantaged homes and any help they can receive is greatly appreciated. On Aug. 10 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., Marion Oaks will hold its third annual Back to School Bash. These supplies will be distributed to the children at that time. Horizon Academy of Marion Oaks is the location for this great event. In addition to the supplies, students will have the opportunity of receiving school physicals; hearing and eye screening and a host of other services available to them and their families. When Mary asked me to let our residents know of this special project, I was proud to do so. I know our Cherrywood residents. They are generous individuals who care about not just seniors, but young people who will be the leaders of our community in a few short years. Please help us fill this donation box; we can make a difference. A special thank youBill Spangeberg gave me a note to send out to our residents. It reads as follows: Thank you to all of Jos friends this past 18 months for all their calls, visits and gift baskets. A special thank you to the Veterans Club and Eve Houghtalings committee of girls for their visits. You make the day special for Jo. Again thank you. When Bill gave me this message to put in the paper as an expression of his and Jos appreciation for all that you, his friends and neighbors, have done; I was happy to do so. I am extremely proud of this community because in times of need, we are more than neighbors and friends; we are family. Drive carefullyDrive carefully is a term that we often use when talking with family and friends, especially when they are headed out on a long trip. We could and should also give this sage advice for driving around town and in our community. Many of our residents walk their dogs or just walk the streets of Cherrywood. Because of the heat of mid-day, they often walk early in the morning or later in the evening when the visibility is limited. Drivers need to go slower when driving around the neighborhood to insure the safety of these people and pets. Just a reminder, the speed limit unLadies luncheons to become permanent part of schedules Cherrywood John Everlove Some ladies from Cherrywood attend the Ladies Luncheon. less otherwise posted is 25 mph in Cherrywood. When you think of it, where do you have to be thats so important as to risk the health and safety of others by speeding? Want some other safe driving tips? Attend the safe driving for seniors classes sponsored by the AARP. (Hows that for a segue?) On Monday, Sept. 9 and Thursday the 12th, from 9 a.m. until noon on both days, the AARP will sponsor the Seniors Safe Driving Class in our clubhouse. This comprehensive program gives seniors tips; hints and techniques for driving safely in the ever increasing traffic of Ocala. These classes are only $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members. Well worth the price of admission, upon finishing this class you will receive a Certificate of Completion. Most auto insurance companys offer reduced premiums for those who have this certificate. You cant lose with this program. Not only will you save money, you might well save your life or the life of a loved one. Only 20 students can be enrolled in this program so call Geri today and take advantage of a great opportunity.Accordion ClubJuly 24 at 5:30 p.m., the Accordion Club of Cherrywood will again be playing for the listening enjoyment of all. Leader Dick Richards, Bob Mace and many others will be there to bring you a wide variety of music on an equally wide variety of instruments. Beginners just starting out amaze and astound the audience with their progress and ability as they play songs that not only many people sing along with but that draws encouraging applause from everyone who hears them. Intermediate players entertain not only in solos but in combination with others which is always a favorite of those gathered to listen. Their styles and songs vary greatly but the common denominator is their talent and gusto. Intermingled throughout the night, we are fortunate to have our professionals. Most of these people have played with big band era orchestras or combos along with entertainers that would be recognized by anyone of our age group. When they jam, its a beautiful thing to behold. Bring your friends and neighbors; bring snacks and drinks and come to the clubhouse for a musical experience you will truly enjoy. Dont take my word for it, ask anyone who has been to one of these concerts and they will agree; its an evening of musical pleasure. Admission is free to these concerts and all are welcome.

PASTORCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 Our ladies luncheons are such a huge success that they are going to become a permanent part of the calendar month at Cherrywood. Our gals have a great time socializing and chatting at this special greet; meet and eat event. Everyone brings a dish to pass around and their own place settings and then they settle in for good conversation and camaraderie. This month more than 20 of our ladies joined in at the July get together. In addition to the excellent food, there were prizes awarded as well. Priscilla Peirce and Edie Nelson won door prizes while Mary Lou Selvitella and Ann Bardack won 50/50 drawings. The next luncheon will be at noon on Aug. 14 so make a note to be there for good times and laugher. Bring a friend with you to make it even more enjoyable. Helping kidsLong time resident Mary Johnson contacted me this week about a rare opportunity to make a difference in the lives of young people. Believe it or not, in just a few weeks the children of this area will be headed back to school and many of them need help. In our clubhouse there is a collection box for school supplies along with a list of needed items. These items include; book bags; colored pencils; crayons; notebooks; loose-leaf paper; pencils and sharpeners; note books and highlighters. We can make a difference in the lives of these students by providing them with the utensils and supplies they need to progress. Many of these youngsters come from poor or disadvantaged homes and any help they can receive is greatly appreciated. On Aug. 10 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., Marion Oaks will hold its third annual Back to School Bash. These supplies will be distributed to the children at that time. Horizon Academy of Marion Oaks is the location for this great event. In addition to the supplies, students will have the opportunity of receiving school physicals; hearing and eye screening and a host of other services available to them and their families. When Mary asked me to let our residents know of this special project, I was proud to do so. I know our Cherrywood residents. They are generous individuals who care about not just seniors, but young people who will be the leaders of our community in a few short years. Please help us fill this donation box; we can make a difference. A special thank youBill Spangeberg gave me a note to send out to our residents. It reads as follows: Thank you to all of Jos friends this past 18 months for all their calls, visits and gift baskets. A special thank you to the Veterans Club and Eve Houghtalings committee of girls for their visits. You make the day special for Jo. Again thank you. When Bill gave me this message to put in the paper as an expression of his and Jos appreciation for all that you, his friends and neighbors, have done; I was happy to do so. I am extremely proud of this community because in times of need, we are more than neighbors and friends; we are family. Drive carefullyDrive carefully is a term that we often use when talking with family and friends, especially when they are headed out on a long trip. We could and should also give this sage advice for driving around town and in our community. Many of our residents walk their dogs or just walk the streets of Cherrywood. Because of the heat of mid-day, they often walk early in the morning or later in the evening when the visibility is limited. Drivers need to go slower when driving around the neighborhood to insure the safety of these people and pets. Just a reminder, the speed limit unLadies luncheons to become permanent part of schedules Cherrywood John Everlove Some ladies from Cherrywood attend the Ladies Luncheon. less otherwise posted is 25 mph in Cherrywood. When you think of it, where do you have to be thats so important as to risk the health and safety of others by speeding? Want some other safe driving tips? Attend the safe driving for seniors classes sponsored by the AARP. (Hows that for a segue?) On Monday, Sept. 9 and Thursday the 12th, from 9 a.m. until noon on both days, the AARP will sponsor the Seniors Safe Driving Class in our clubhouse. This comprehensive program gives seniors tips; hints and techniques for driving safely in the ever increasing traffic of Ocala. These classes are only $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members. Well worth the price of admission, upon finishing this class you will receive a Certificate of Completion. Most auto insurance companys offer reduced premiums for those who have this certificate. You cant lose with this program. Not only will you save money, you might well save your life or the life of a loved one. Only 20 students can be enrolled in this program so call Geri today and take advantage of a great opportunity.Accordion ClubJuly 24 at 5:30 p.m., the Accordion Club of Cherrywood will again be playing for the listening enjoyment of all. Leader Dick Richards, Bob Mace and many others will be there to bring you a wide variety of music on an equally wide variety of instruments. Beginners just starting out amaze and astound the audience with their progress and ability as they play songs that not only many people sing along with but that draws encouraging applause from everyone who hears them. Intermediate players entertain not only in solos but in combination with others which is always a favorite of those gathered to listen. Their styles and songs vary greatly but the common denominator is their talent and gusto. Intermingled throughout the night, we are fortunate to have our professionals. Most of these people have played with big band era orchestras or combos along with entertainers that would be recognized by anyone of our age group. When they jam, its a beautiful thing to behold. Bring your friends and neighbors; bring snacks and drinks and come to the clubhouse for a musical experience you will truly enjoy. Dont take my word for it, ask anyone who has been to one of these concerts and they will agree; its an evening of musical pleasure. Admission is free to these concerts and all are welcome.

It began as a beatification project by Midge and Jim on the island parcel of land in the middle of their street. What had been an overgrowth of weeds was soon transformed into a garden like setting because of their hard work. Once that had been completed, Jim spoke with our Color Guard commander Gerry Moscariello suggesting that there be a place for flags to fly on patriotic holidays such as July 4; Flag Day etc. Gerry agreed and soon, thanks to Jim Lee, stands were in place and ready to receive the flags. Ever since that time, on every holiday, you can drive by the circle at Southwest 98th Place and see not only the American and POW/MIA flag, but the flags of every branch of service waving in the breeze. This project was begun as an unsolicited act of patriotism by four special people and has become a tradition. The neighborhood is more beautiful; the Armed Forces more appreciated and the American flag more honored because of them. We thank Midge; Jim; Loretta and Gerry for their work; commitment and love of country. You have helped make Cherrywood a better place to live. Cribbage ClubThanks to the leadership and guidance of Sarah Blair, our Cribbage Club is growing by leaps and bounds. Mondays at 12:30 p.m., about a dozen or so people gather in the library of the clubhouse. They divide into teams and then have a rip roaring game of Cribbage. Some are new to the game so the other players are patient in helping them learn. Other players have been at the game for years and with them, there is a bit more banter and kidding. If you are passing by the library on a Monday, you will no doubt hear loud laughter and the occasional jokes hurled at various people in the group. No need to be alarmed, its all in good fun. Stop in and join us. Sarah is working on setting up a tournament in the near future. Please keep an eye on this column to find out when that will take place. Some of our players are confident enough to start talking about a traveling league. If there are other communities that would like to play against us, please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Strictly for fun and bragging rights, theres no place like the cribbage club on Mondays.Flu shotsOn Sept. 6 from 1 until 3 in the afternoon, VaxCare will be in our clubhouse to administer winter flu shots. Most doctors recommend that senior citizens get a flu shot to prevent getting this some times fatal disease. Check with your doctor to see if you should get a shot this flu season to keep yourself healthy. Set get your name on the list with Geri and enjoy the convenience of getting your shot at the clubhouse. No need to travel outside of your community to get this immunization and that way youll be able to enjoy all that Cherrywood has to offer.

Friday, July 19, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, July 19, 2013 www.smcitizen.com At the July 2 Tuesday Social, Board Secretary Connie Rowe presented Harry Therien with the Marion Landing Volunteer Recognition Award. She introduced Harry by saying, This month we are honoring an individual who moved here about four years ago, and hes been a very active volunteer since about day one! Besides being a bowling captain, hes a member of the set-up crew, assists the Activities Support Committee by being a preand post-inspector for private parties, and has chaired a billiards tournament. He also helps at many special events like the Sally shows and the Homer Noodleman shows, too. For quite some time, he has taken photos or videos during events and the Senior Games, except when he was our surprise Santa! Most of us dont see him for one of his commitments, because he is a member of the lock-up crew. But hes definitely here at every Tuesday Social since hes a patrol captain. It is my pleasure to present the Volunteer Recognition Award to Harry Therien.

Friday, July 19, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, July 19, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Our country, so it seems, runs on choice. The more choices we have the better we like it. Most people in America pride themselves on the ability to make their own choices. Freedom of Choice, is the cry you hear all around our country these days. Yet, most people do not have the freedom of choice they think they have. Somebody is influencing the choices they make without them realizing they are being influenced. That is called marketing. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were watching television the other night, trying to watch a favorite TV program. Finally, from an end of the room that was not my end, came an exasperated sigh. I tried to ignore it, but you know how that works. The exasperation seemed to accelerate and I knew that if I did not acknowledge it in some way, well, I think you know what would happen. It was in the middle of some commercials and so I turned to her and said, Whats got you in such pain tonight? At her age I did not know if there was some medical something or other going on. These commercials, she moaned so painfully, I cant stand all these commercials! I must say I was a little bummed out about all the commercials myself. I think every one-hour program is devoted to 30 minutes of commercials. Most of those commercials are for things I have no interest in. Or, they are played at a very inappropriate time. It never fails if we are having our supper while watching television there are 79 commercials for diarrhea. Is this really a major problem in our country today? Getting back to my wife and the commercials, I responded as cheerfully as I could, Well, my dear, somebody has to pay for our television viewing privilege. I felt a cold yet burning stare in my direction. Cant they run those lousy commercials when Im not watching TV? Someone once said that silence is golden and right then I cultivated a golden moment. Commercials are a way in which manufacturing companies influence our choices. Every product has 100 different companies marketing the same product. I have not done too much research but the little I have done I discovered that the same company makes the same product but sells it under a different name. There are two categories of products. There is the name brand, which cost a fortune. Then there is the generic brand, which is only a fraction of what the name brand Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Apple fritter: the fruit of my choice cost. It is the same product, made by the same company, but advertised by difference venues. This is where choice comes in. Some people choose the high-priced product because they think it is better. Some of us choose the low-price product because we know better. One night as we were watching television, it seemed most of the commercials had to do with dieting of some kind. There were high calorie diets, low-carb diets and diet that really did not make sense to me. Watching all of those dieting commercials, I did not see one that I would die for. Every one of those commercials assumes everybody watching wants to lose 297 pounds. Personally, I have lost the same five pounds for over 30 years. I lose five pounds and then by golly, three weeks later I find those five pounds, at least they recognize me. Anybody can lose weight; it is all a matter of choice. Personally, I do not plan to lose any sleep because I cannot lose weight. I think it is going to be rather funny if when we go to heaven everybody is fat. Wouldnt that be something? We plummet ourselves almost to death trying to lose weight and get to heaven and everybody is fat. It all boils down to choice. It all boils down to the fact that most people think they are making their own choices. Those of us who are on the husband side of the marital equation know we do not make our own choices. Our choices are made for us by our better half. Why do you think we get married? My wife is a great one for fruit and vegetables. Every day of our life is fruit and vegetables. To mix things up a little bit one day it will be vegetables and fruit. She prepares the fruit and then invites me to make a choice. I am sure she did not see all of this in any television commercial; at least I hope she hasnt. She is proud of the display of fruit choices she has for me. She is also concerned about my diet. Much more than I am. I do not think my diet is so important that both of us should be concerned about it. If she chooses to be concerned about my diet, that is her choice. I choose to be a little more cavalier when it comes to dieting. Actually, and do not tell her I said this, but my fruit of choice is the humble Apple fritter. It has everything my heart desires and a few things my body desires, too. PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE17 LANDINGCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 Oak Run celebrated July 4th like celebrations that took place in various hometowns of many of our residents. It started with a fun patriotic dance with good music for dancing and a tribute to our military men. Wednesday the 3rd featured a jazz band, hot dogs and good old visiting with neighbors. The 4th was a great parade, with Decca security handling traffic and a cool down in the Orchid Club. There is no doubt that the folks in attendance love America showing their appreciation to the Marion County Sheriffs Fife and Drum Corps, the color guard of the Oak Run Veterans Association and a singalong with the Oak Run Troubadours. A big thank you to Paul and Emily Pike and their committee for all their work to give us a wonderful July 4th celebration.

Two of the most important characteristics of hearing aids are Channels and Bands which are also some of the most misunderstood by users. To start off with, the number of channels or bands has nothing to do with the number of programs or volume settings. Sounds are processed and amplified by a hearing aid based on frequencies (or the pitch of a sound) and volumes. A peek at your audiogram will tell you how much amplification you need for any given frequency. In a nutshell, bands and channels thus determine how granular a hearing aid can process and amplify the sounds it perceives. To quote a great explanation from Philips: A band is what is used to control volume in different frequencies. This allows us to adjust more volume in a specific area of your hearing loss without effecting other areas where you might need less volume The more bands the hearing aid offers the more room we have to fit the aid to your hearing loss. Channels break up the frequency range into individual channels. This allows the hearing aid to differentiate noise from speech. The more channels the hearing aid has the more fine tuned it can be. For instance the sound of keys falling on a table, or water running in the sink may be overwhelming. When your hearing aid offers many channels we can adjust each frequency that is too loud without sacrificing the things you want to hear, like your spouse or boss. Thus, just the way a high-resolution picture gives you a sharper image, more bands and channels provide you with a more granular sound quality. More channels will provide better resolution on the frequencies and more bands will mean better resolution on the volume thus allowing your hearing aid to match your audiogram more accurately.

July is family golf month. Whoever originated this tradition must live up north. Here the ideal time for golfing is the winter months. Pun Alley has some stories from our season.Fresh start?It was a sunny morning, a little before 8, on the first hole of a busy course, and John was beginning his pre-shot routine, visualizing the upcoming shot when a piercing voice came over the clubhouse loudspeaker, Would the gentleman on the womens tee box, please back up to the mens tee, please? John simply ignored the guy and kept concentrating, when once more the man yelled, Would the man on the womens tee please back up to the mens tee? John finally stopped, turned, cupped his hands and shouted back, Would the man with the microphone kindly keep quiet and let me play my second shot?Mindful A man was playing golf with his wife who was in a talkative mood. He finally turned to her in disgust, Please dont talk so much. You are driving me out of my mind. Thats no drive, she said. Thats just a short putt. Typical The young man had just teed up on the first hole, and was getting ready to drive when a woman in a wedding dress came running toward him. She grabbed his arm and began shouting as she pulled him toward the parking lot. For heavens sake, the man screamed back, I said only if it rains. But he softened and went off to be wed. Hed learned to put the heart before the course.Short puttsThey have just developed a new golf club to be used when you are not sure which club is best. It is called the waffle iron. First golfer: I usually shoot in the low 90s. Second golfer: Kinda hot to play golf. When fore shouted twice didnt move the women on the green ahead, a fellow golfer suggested trying .98. Golf pro: Tee the ball. Novice: Sure, I see it, but why the baby talk? The reason the pro tells you to keep your head down is so you cant see him laughing. You think so much about your golf game that you dont even remember when we were married, complained the wife. I certainly do; it was the day I sunk that 85-yard putt.A wild taleA man staggered into an emergency room with two black eyes and a five iron wrapped tightly around his throat. Naturally the doctor asked him what happened. Well, it was like this, said the man. I was having a quiet round of golf with my wife, when she sliced her ball into a cow pasture. We went to look for it, and while I was rooting around I noticed one of the cows had something white at its rear end. I walked over and lifted up the tail, and sure enough, there was my wifes golf ball stuck right in the middle of the cows butt. Thats when I made my mistake. What did you do? asks the doctor. Well, I lifted the tail and yelled to my wife, hey, this looks like yours!ClubbedJudy: Whatd you buy George for his birthday? Linda: This set of golf clubs. Judy: Thats a great idea. The bag is such a pretty pink. What are those cute booties for? Linda: Oh, everybody knows that. They keep the woods covered. Judy: Well, whatre the numbers for? Linda: Dont you know anything about golf? Those numbers tell you how many times to hit the ball.Ah ha!A wife and her husband were enjoying a quiet evening when the woman inquired, If I died today, would you remarry? Im a young man, so probably, said the man. Would you let her live in this house? she asked. Well, houses are expensive these days, probably so, he replied. Would she cook in my kitchen, sleep in our bed, use our bath, and drive my car? she continued. Well, I suppose she would, he said. And would she use my golf clubs? Absolutely not! If shed use everything else, why not? Shes left-handed!

Manna From HeavenWith the popularity of the food networks and the prevalence of foodies in our midst, it is interesting to look back in the Bible for the original perfect food, that is manna. As it is told in Exodus, the Israelites, after their freedom from bondage in Egypt, were led by Moses into the wilderness. They soon ran out of food having left Egypt in haste with little time for provisions. (Remember matzah, unleavened bread?) It was not long in typical Jewish form that the people started kvetching and wishing for the fleshpots of Egypt where they, though slaves, at least had food. God, in compassion for his people, sends down a special food called manna. While the Creator could have provided simple bread, this fine, coriander seed-like substance was found each morning on the ground under the dew. When gathered, it could be ground into flour and baked into cakes. According to the Torah, raw manna tasted like wafers made with honey (Exodus 16:31) or when baked into cakes, it tasted like cake made with oil. But what really was this marvelous substance and where did it come from? There have been some theories about the Israelites sustainable food. Most would agree that because it appears on the ground in the morning and without apparent cultivation it was something of a miracle food. Practically speaking, the manna described in the Bible was some kind of a sap from either a tamarisk tree or a camel thorn bush, both of which grow prolifically in the desert regions of the Middle East. The sap oozes out at night and dries out quickly in the hot desert sun of the morning. This is probably what the Israelites gathered for sustenance. Other authorities look at the situation in a different manner. According to the commentator, Rashi, manna could taste like anything anybody wished except like cucumbers, watermelons, leeks, onions and garlic because these could be harmful to nursing mothers. Jewish tradition also claims that manna was one of the ten things created by God at twilight on the eve of the first Sabbath of creation. Therefore it was put in place even before the Israelites complained to Moses. Another interesting fact about manna is that it tasted like any food anybody wished so that to the young it tasted like bread, the old, as wafers with honey, to infants, as mothers milk, to the sick, fine flour mingled with honey. This idea came about from a comment from Rabbi Jose who wrote about manna in the Talmud. While the events described in Exodus happened over 3,000 years ago, the remembrance of the manna still lingers in Jewish ritual today. On a traditional Sabbath table are two loaves of bread with poppy or sesame seeds sprinkled on top. This is to symbolize the double portion of manna that the Israelites received on Friday since no gathering of manna was allowed to take place on the Sabbath. The seeds were to resemble the manna, as we understand the generalized consistency of the food. Had I lived during the time of the Israelites, I would have wanted my manna to taste like chocolate. (Though I concede the cacao bean would be discovered much, much later in history) In the true spirit of tzekadah, righteousness, let us share our food with those in need in our community and be grateful for the sustenance we have been given. To me, this is the message of the manna, a marvelous food which sustained my ancestors for 40 years in the wilderness.

Friday, July 19, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, July 19, 2013 www.smcitizen.com In 2012, there were more than 60 new life-affirming state laws enacted with 38 related to abortion, indicating a renewed culture of life. Even our slow-to-act media have noted the revitalization of interest in prolife legislation. To quote Mother Teresa, Abortion kills twice. It kills the body of the baby and it kills the conscience of the mother. Abortion is profoundly anti-women. Mabel Ryan Life Education Ministry, Inc. OcalaLet freedom and God ring!Believers endeavor to make life better and more meaningful for all people: believers, nonbelievers, the misguided, in the name of God. Many atheists are content to live their non-belief and allow others to practice their own beliefs. Other atheists, however, feel the need to force their non-belief on people who dont want or need it. The overwhelming majority of Americans see prayer as the answer to lifes adventures and struggles. They must be allowed to pray in churches, schools, public areas, wherever they wish. One goal of atheism is to strip away that freedom. Another goal of atheism is their version of separation of church and state. Atheists are deliberately camouflaging the principle of the First Amendment which ultimately leads to that separation. Their real objective is a deliberateswipe at religious ideas ... the very principles that America was founded on. Atheists, rather than inflicting their misbeliefs on those who dont welcome them, should be concentrating on improving the lives of others, just as believers do. American Atheists recently erected a monument in Starke, Florida; a knee-jerk reaction to a memorial that had been previously erected there by believers. And, American Atheists plan to erect 50 more monuments across America in public areas where believers have already placed memorials to celebrate their freedoms. These efforts will certainly not advance the causes of American Atheists. LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Instead, they will only serve to diminish their already tarnished image. Joe OHara OcalaLets move onIf the facts don't fit you must acquit. Yes, the verdict was correct as the state didn't prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt in a case that was politically driven and shouldn't have gone to trial to begin with. Despite that and not surprisingly, Sharpton and Jackson are out their doing their usual shtick charging up the troops. The elite media isn't helping the situation either. The truth is this tragic incident could have been avoided. Both the actions of George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin in particular led to that deadly confrontation. Let's move on.

Friday, July 19, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 19, 2013 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenFrom the beginning, people who would ban all private guns if they could have used the George Zimmerman case to push their agenda. They push on two fronts: First, they argue that Zimmermans 2012 fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, who had no gun, demonstrates that guns are an unmitigated evil. Second, the antigun lobby is using the case to agitate for the repeal of stand your ground laws, which are on the books in many states. It is hard to see how this case, in which Zimmerman was acquitted of murder and manslaughter, condemns gun ownership or concealed carry. Zimmerman claims he shot Martin in self-defense. The prosecution was unable to impeach that claim. Its true that Martin had no gun and Zimmerman did. For many people, this in itself proves that Zimmerman used his gun unjustifiably, hence demonstrating that guns are bad per se. But that makes no sense. Are we to believe that a gun is the only means of threatening a person with death or serious injury? People were killed by a variety of means before guns existed, including fists. So there is no prima facie case that a gun was used improperly merely because the person shot had no firearm. (In the murder case, the jurors apparently believed Zimmermans account that Martin knocked him down with a sucker punch to the face, then sat on his chest, banging his head against the pavement.) Thus the Zimmerman case furnishes no ammunition pun intended for gun controllers. How could a justifiable homicide the jurys finding provide evidence for banning or restricting guns? We may go further and note that even a guilty verdict would have been no grounds for gun control. No matter what gun laws are on the books, bad guys will always get firearms. Gunrunning is as old as guns themselves. It is only the innocent who would be without guns, and that means more murders, more rapes, more assaults. The answer to gun violence is not to deprive the innocent of guns. Lets move on to stand your ground laws. Many states have passed these laws to clarify the law of self-defense. It is an old principle that one may use deadly force to defend ones life (or other innocent life) in ones own home. In other words, one has no duty to retreat. Elsewhere, however, there is a general duty to retreat. If you are threatened but can get away safely, the law requires you to do so rather than confronting the threat. This rule presumably evolved to prevent escalation of violence and to preserve the peace. The stand your ground principle clarifies things by holding that if one cannot retreat safely from a deadly or other serious threat when away from home, one may use deadly force to counter the threat. Thats all it does. It does not permit one to shoot someone else casually with impunity. You may be asking what this has to do with George Zimmerman. The answer is nothing. Zimmerman did not invoke stand your ground after the shooting last year. He could have asked for a hearing on the matter, but he did not. (Had he prevailed in that hearing, there would have been no murder trial.) The reason Zimmerman did not invoke the principle is obvious: His account of events rules out stand your ground. Remember, he claims that Martin knocked him down with a blow and then sat on his chest beating him. If youre on the ground, you cant stand your ground. Ironically, Martins actions look more like a case of stand your ground. The prosecutions account is that Martin saw Zimmerman following him. The residence to which Martin was walking was a short distance away, but instead of retreating for protection, he ended up in the deadly altercation. Why? If he felt he could not retreat safely, then he was standing his ground when he confronted Zimmerman. Stand your ground is reasonable law. The Zimmerman case provides no reason to repeal it.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). When my father died back in 2004, I had no idea there was a quarterly reading of names at Veterans Memorial Park every three months. In that reading, the list of every veteran who died in the previous three months is read aloud, a ceremonial bell is rung twice after each name, and there is a continuous drum roll while the names are being articulated. The ceremony also includes the singing of God Bless America, the bugling of Assembly and Taps, and a 21-gun salute. If I had known nine years ago, I would have found a way to be there. Its a final goodbye to the men and women who served their country, whether in peace or war, whether at home or abroad. These are not necessarily people who died in action, or who dedicated their whole lives to the military, just ordinary people who said goodbye to the comforts of home and family to go, in some cases, far away to uphold the honor of the United States of America. You dont have to have lost a veteran to attend. Its outdoors, and a little hot and humid at this time of year, but its worth it just to go and listen, and look at the faces around you. Some who attend are regulars, but you can tell that some are there for the first time, probably because the name of a loved one is about to be read. Those are the people who are not standing around in friendly conversation before the event starts; theyre just sitting there buried in their own thoughts and memories. Sheriff Chris Blair was there, but not a whole lot of county government was represented. Local military groups take turns doing the reading this time it was American Legion Post 284. Veterans Memorial Park, at the corner of East Silver Springs Boulevard and 25th Avenue, is host to many military-type honors and events. The Veterans Day ceremony, with hundreds of school children bused in, is one of the most impressive anywhere in North Central Florida. (Hopefully, school budget cuts wont prevent the attendance of the children). If youve never taken the time to explore the park, by all means do so. Wander around slowly and take a look at all the memorials scattered through the area. The paths and even the gazebo are wheelchair-friendly, too. Admittedly, theres a lot to cover, so going in the heat of the day may not be advisable at this time of year. But when you get the chance, do so, and remember that a lot of the people honored there went through a lot more than a little summer heat during their service in the military. And if you can, early in October, take in the quarterly memorial reading. Its an impressive ceremony that you will remember for a long time.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Reaping $8.8 million in savings over the past year from program revisions and staff reductions, Floridas Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) recently asked for and received approval from the states 14-member Legislative Budget Committee to use $571,961 of those savings for employee bonuses. Based on performance criteria of customer feedback and how quickly the permitting process is completed, the bonuses, ranging from $722 to $6,000, will go to 269 employees of the departments nearly 1,600-member regulatory program. The DEPs performance criteria for the bonuses even though the bonuses in question will be awarded for permit decisions already made is flawed because it sends the message that speed is more important than scrutiny. Given human nature, emphasizing speed as the standard rather than scrutiny will undoubtedly influence future permit decisions by suggesting to employees that they limit the scope and circumspection of the permitting process at the expense of the departments core mission of protecting the environment. Following Gov. Rick Scotts elimination of the Department of Community Affairs which reviewed large development plans and legislation passed in 2011 and reduced the permit review time from 90 to 60 days, rewarding employees for speeding up the permitting process particularly sends the wrong message. While efficiency is certainly an appropriate goal for the DEP, the desire to expedite bureaucracy must be balanced with the departments core mission of protecting Floridas natural resources. By utilizing flawed criteria, both the DEP and Legislative Budget Commission have apparently lost sight of the departments charge to protect, conserve and manage the states natural resources, as well as enforce its environmental laws. Given the states earlier steps backward on environmental policy, Floridians should be especially concerned that the very agency responsible for protecting our states natural resources has opted to reward employees for sacrificing in-depth review in favor of speed.Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Dont reward speed if in depth hurts Reading of deceased vets impressive Zimmerman case is no grounds for gun control READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your zeal for challenges usually works well for you. But this week its best to avoid jumping into new situations without more information. Vital news emerges by the weekend. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Once again, the Bovines patience pays off as that pesky problem works itself out without taking too much of your valuable time. A new task opens interesting possibilities. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Those suggestions you want to share need to be set aside for a while so you can focus on the job at hand. Therell be time later to put your ideas into a workable format. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be sure about your sources before you use the information in any decision you reach about your new project. Some of the data might be out of date or misinterpreted. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A challenge might rattle you at first. But pump up that strong Lions heart with a full measure of courage, and face it with the continuing support of family and friends. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Watch your expenses this week so you can have a financial cushion to fall back on should things tighten up later this month. Money matters ease by the 31st. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Uncertainty over workplace policy creates anxiety and confusion among your colleagues. Dont be surprised if youre asked, once again, to help work things out. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) The workweek keeps you busy tying up loose ends and checking data that needs to be verified. The weekend offers a chance to relax and restore your spent energies. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is not the best time to go to extremes to prove a point. Better to set a sensible goal and move forward. Therell be time later to take the bolder course. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A step-by-step progression is the better way to move ahead. Taking shortcuts could be risky. Important news arrives on the 31st. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Avoid getting drawn into workplace disputes that should be handled by those directly involved. Instead, spend your energy developing those new ideas. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You still need to be prudent about money matters. But things start to ease by the end of the week. A weekend encounter with an old friend brings welcome news. BORN THIS WEEK: You handle challenging situations with boldness when necessary and caution when called for. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR States and abortionsAfter years of opposing abortion by public witnessing, sidewalk counseling, distributing literature, holding and promoting rallies, giving and listening to motivational speeches, and many other methods of transmitting the pro-life message, we realized that the number of reported abortions continued to expand each year in spite of our best efforts. It was then that our ministry acknowledged the obvious: Only state-by-state legislation could reduce or eliminate abortion. Saving one baby at a time is following the Christian teaching of protecting the least of us by prayer, action, and compassionate support, and those who practice this method of abortion opposition are to be commended. However, 40 years of such activity has not deterred nor altered the abortion of millions of unborn children which should be our cardinal consideration. Since the year 2011 we have witnessed a reversal in thinking by many state legislators and these reversals have had a positive impact on the agenda of the pro-life community. It can be debated whether these reversals were politically motivated or for more lofty reasons. Reported abortion numbers are still at an all-time high, but as limitations on abortion become law in many states, logic suggest that future abortion numbers will decrease. In 2011, Florida passed five significant pro-life laws including the important sonogram law. This same year many other states made historic progress in their victories for life.

Friday, July 19, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, July 19, 2013 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING LINCOLN UNBOUND By Rich Lowry Conceding that Abraham Lincoln is one of the most written about presidents weve ever had, author Lowry focuses almost exclusively on Lincolns unwavering, fervent belief in the American Dream. In 1864 he welcomed the 166th Ohio Regiment to the White House with words meant to drive home justification for the Civil War: It is in order that each of you may have through this free government which we have enjoyed, an open field and a fair chance for your industry, enterprise, and intelligence . that we may not lose our birthright. The nation is worth fighting for, to secure such an inestimable jewel. This theme was far from mere patriotic pap. Rather, it spoke of a belief embedded in the marrow of his bonesthat the American Dream must be available to all. History books tend to romanticize Lincolns humble roots and railsplitting. But as Lowry points out Lincoln actually hated finding himself on societys bottom rung. Enlisted in every job imaginable from cutting corn, digging wells, and butchering hogs, he labored under a sense of injustice. Having to turn over his wages to his father was a sore point. As a basic matter of justice a person deserved to keep what he earned, our 16th president believed. According to Lowry Lincolns vision was of a free, dynamic, industrialized society full of opportunity. In fact, the author frequently refers to Lincoln as the apostle of opportunity whose reverence for the Founding Fathers and the Declaration of Independence keeps drawing us back to the deepest principles of our republic. To an aspiring lawyer Lincoln once said, Work, work, work, is the main thing. But Lowrys critics object to his recreating Lincoln in his own conservative image. And they point to the weakness of his defense of Lincolns war policies. After all, more Americans died in the Civil War than in any other war. And when Lowry conducted promotional interviews, his critics found a way to mock him by saying that now that hed written the book, he was a mindreader. Here are some samples: He certainly would have loved the Tea Party (interview with Ed Driscoll). In contrast to todays debt-obsessed GOP, Lincoln was solutions focused (on Morning Joe). Recommended for history buffs and those who cant read enough about Lincoln. Another book about our 16th president Bookmark Pat Wellington Thursday, Sept. 5 CERT traini ng anno unc edA new Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training will begin Thursday, Sept. 5, at the Marion County Sheriffs Office, 692 N.W. 30th Ave., Ocala. 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.

On Top of the World had almost perfect weather at the time of the fireworks on July 4, which started a few minutes before 9 p.m. The cloud cover was too low for the sky divers but high enough so that the fireworks could be seen by residents. The ground was wet but no more rain came down. Those who left early missed a good display. There were also food vendors on the street. Face painting was being done under a canopy near the food vendors. The music was provided by the 2nd Slice Band. Other entertainment was provided by two people on long stilts. The man was dressed like Uncle Sam and the lady had a short skirt. Both were able to bend down to kids level to chat with them. Marking the 4th at OTOW Residents, guests and children had a good time dancing to the live music by the 2nd Slice Band.

ous privacy fences and buffers around the property. After members of the crowd spoke, Bryant asked staff members for the answers to some of the questions and gave some answers herself. Suarez had talked about the possible upgrading of 56th Avenue, and had mentioned prorating the cost. Alejandria residents had taken that to mean they would have to pay, but Suarez said he was talking about costsharing among those in his development. Bryant commented that Suarez has no authority to do anything and pro-rate the charge. It ended up with the county going back to get a figure and then obtaining a one-time payment from Suarez. One speaker had noted that at the Friday meeting, Suarez had changed the number of lots from 222 to 290, and staff members agreed that this is what they heard. However, Suarez, who speaks with a heavy accent, said that he said and not 290. Suarez was supposed to have a new plan and engineering prior to the town meeting, but this had not been done. When discussing the motion to approve, Commissioner Stan McClain warned, I encourage you to get your work done and live up to his deadlines with the county. Suarez now has to come back in six months with more detailed plans, which the county will review, before he can move to the construction level. Bryant told him and the audience, There are a lot of issues that are going to have to be resolved.

Please note that there is a penalty for not enrolling once you are eligible. There are so many variables and exceptions to the rules and regulations of Medicare, that it will greatly benefit you to contact a SHINE counselor once you receive your Medicare ID Card (Florida Elder Helpline at 1-800-963-5337).

However, if you already have creditable drug insurance coverage, you may wait until you or your spouse stop working, at which time you then have 63 days to choose and enroll in a drug plan without a penalty. If you ever move out of the insurance coverage area of a Medicare Advantage Plan or Part D drug plan, you also have a special enrollment period.

BRIEFS Medicare rules for signing upBY CAROL CLARK Shine CounselorAt age 65, and once you have worked and obtained 40 earnings credit quarters (approximately 10 years), you become eligible for premium-free Medicare Part A hospital coverage. If you chose to begin receiving Social Security benefits before age 65, then you will automatically receive your Medicare ID Card about three months before your 65th birthday. If you have waited for full retirement age to apply for Social Security benefits, then you will need to contact the Social Security Administration and apply for a Medicare ID Card about three months before your 65th birthday. You can easily complete this process by phone or online at www.socialsecurity.gov. Its a good idea to take a look at this website. You might be surprised what you can accomplish from the comfort of your home or office. When your Medicare ID Card arrives, it will state Part A (Hospital Coverage) and Part B (Medical Coverage), with an Effective Date for each type of insurance coverage. If you already have alternate medical coverage through your or your spouses employer, then you may not need Part B (Medical Coverage) at this time. If this is the case, you can simply return the entire Medicare ID Card to the Social Security Administration and request a new Medicare ID Card with just Part A (Hospital Coverage). Be sure to double-check with your Social Security benefits administrator to make sure that you do not have to take Part B when you turn 65. In 2013, Part B coverage has a monthly INDEX Bookmark..............................26 Cherrywood.........................16 Classifieds.............................30 Judis Journal.......................10 Marion Landing..................14 Oak Run.................................20 OTOW.....................................23 Out to Pastor........................13 Pun Alley...............................22 Puzzles...................................25CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & BusinessesFRIDAY, JULY 19, 2013 VOLUME 18 NUMBER 8 www.smcitizen.com32~ Friday, July 19, 2013 www.smcitizen.com BY JIM CLARK EditorMiami developer Enrique Suarez has obtained his zoning change, but faces a long list of conditions and got a stern warning from one Marion County commissioner. At the zoning portion of Tuesdays County Commission meeting, the board approved the request of Suarez to zone more than 50 acres as a planned unit development (PUD), a switch from the current R-1 (residential) zoning. The property is north of Alejandria Estates, east of Cherrywood, south of Meadow Glenn and west of Woods and Meadows. The change would allow smaller lot sizes, enabling Suarez to build on 219 lots, as small as 6,000 square feet. Under the R-1 zoning, the minimum lot size is 10,000 square feet. Commissioner David Moore objected, asking for a compromise of 8,000 square feet, but no other board member took him up on it, and the zoning change passed, 4-1. Commissioners reminded the audience that under R-1, Suarez could start building immediately. He would have to have the larger lot sizes, but would not face any of the restrictions imposed by county officials. Chairman Kathy Bryant told the crowd that they might be better off with the PUD zoning. A town meeting was conducted by Suarez on Friday, July 12, at the Freedom Public Library. The overflow crowd at the library meeting rooms got Suarez to agree to some of the conditions, and these were incorporated Tuesday in the final motion. The crowd was considerably smaller at Tuesdays meeting, and the rhetoric, for the most part, was toned down, although some continued to object, and others complained about items that Suarez had already agreed to fix. Among the conditions laid down as part of the zoning change were building of a privacy fence behind the recreation area at the south end, which adjoins Alejandria Estates; A -11 gate only at the north end of Alejandrias 56th Avenue, which would only be used for emergency vehicles; participation in sign funding for Alejandria Estates, conducting a traffic study and a possible signal at the corner of 100th Street and 62nd Avenue Road, which would be the main entrance to the development; compliance with the countys new Land Development Code; and variCounty OKs zoning change Developer given conditions PHOTO BY JIM CLARKEnrique Suarez speaks at Fridays town meeting. BY PRISCILLA GEISSAL Special to the CitizenOn Monday afternoon, July 15, at about 2 p.m., Curry Andrews, 94, of Fairfield Village, walked down the sloping driveway to his mailbox. As he was walking back up toward his home, he heard a crack and stepped back just in time to see half the huge tree in his front lawn fall directly in his path. The tree split in a gust of wind, Andrews said, And just came crashing down I think I was very blessed not to have been hit. The house can be replaced somehow. Thank goodness my neighbor, Tony Lucas, was outside too, because the tree hit his house also. Both Lucas and Andrews are counting their blessings, although both home were extensively damaged. Neighbors flocked to help the 94year-old Andrews, who is described by a neighbor as just the sweetest man you could ever want to know. Andrews was featured a little over a year ago, highlighting his work in raising funds for the March for Babies, formerly the March of Dimes.
