LOCAL BY JIM CLARK EditorIn the wake of the defeat last year of a tax that would have kept Munroe Regional Medical Center with local operators, outgoing Hospital CEO Steve Purvis explained the current status of the hospital at a recent State Road 200 Coalition meeting. Munroe is entering into a lease agreement with Health Management Associates, which operates 73 hospitals, including 23 in Florida, according to Purves, who is leaving Munroe for a job in the Phoenix area at the end of August. This is a half billion dollar transaction, Purves told the Coalition at its meeting on July 15. Purves said current employees will be offered a chance to stay on for a year after that it would be up to hospital officials to decide who they will keep. There are a lot of details were working through now. He said the most vulnerable are the senior leadership staff of the hospital. Purves addressed recent stories that HMA was in the news because of complaints of some of INDEX Bookmark..............................20 Calendar...................................4 Cherrywood.........................13 Classifieds.............................30 Oak Run.................................22 Opinion....................................8 Out to Pastor..........................9 Pun Alley...............................24 Puzzles...................................26 Recipe.....................................17 Page 21 Angelina Socco was shopping at the Crossroads Church thrift store on Southwest 38th Street in OcalaCHURCH HAS THRIFT STORE CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & BusinessesFRIDAY, JULY 26, 2013 VOLUME 17 NUMBER 9 www.smcitizen.com BY JIM CLARK EditorIf youve ever used the services of Marion County Fire Rescue Station 20 (Golden Ocala) or Friendship Station 21, you might have gotten familiar with the personnel who respond to your area. Get ready to meet some new people. Fire Rescue officials are swapping the personnel from the two stations in a move designed, they say, to have the properly trained personnel with the right equipment. Station 21s volunteers are questioning the move and how it was planned. According to MCFR public information officer Jessica Greene, the county is getting two new trucks with 78-foot ladders. One of these trucks is being assigned to Station 21, which is on 90th Street just off State Road 200, near Lowes. Crew members that have more extensive training, according to Greene, are at Station 20, and thus are being moved to Friendship. As a result, all personnel are being swapped. Station 21 joins with Station 31, which is on County Road 484 west of 200, in covering the crowded corridor, which includes several commercial structures that would need a ladder truck to get to the higher floors. Station 20, which is at 80th Avenue Northwest near U.S. Highway 27, covers that corridor which is mostly residential, rarely higher than two stories. Thats why the ladder truck is a welcome addition to the station and the corridor.32~ Friday, July 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Volunteers question fire station swap PHOTO BY JIM CLARKFriendship Station 21 is nestled among the trees on Southwest 90th Street, just off State Road 200. PLEASESEEFIRE, PAGE3 PHOTO BY JIM CLARKThis is the site, across from SummerGlen, where a new high school is being proposed in Marion Oaks. Proposal for Marion Oaks high school worries SummerGlen BY JIM CLARK EditorMARION OAKS Theres a new high school coming to Marion Oaks, according to longrange plans, and residents of nearby SummerGlen are concerned about it. Their fears may be a little premature, however. The school is so far in the future that some of its first students may not have been born yet. The School Board, through one of its employees, David Herlihy, appeared before the County Commission on Tuesday, July 16, requesting a special use permit to build a high school. The land is directly south of the community of SummerGlen, and the northwest corner of the property is across the street from SummerGlens southern entrance. The 160 acres is owned by Summur LLC, and the special use permit is needed because the land is zoned A-1, agriculture. Thats how it was listed on the agenda, so unless people consulted the backup material, there was no way to tell it was about a school in Marion Oaks. PLEASESEESCHOOL, PAGE3 For three days next weekend, Florida law directs that no sales tax or local option tax (also known as discretionary sales surtax) will be collected on sales of clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for $75 or less per item, on certain school supplies selling for $15 or less per item, and on personal computers and certain related accessories selling for $750 or less per item, when purchased for noncommercial home or personal use. This three-day tax holiday is in effect from 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 2, through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 4. The exemption will apply no matter how many items are sold on the same invoice to a customer. The exemption does not apply to any item of clothing selling for more than $75, to any school supply item selling for more than $15, or to any personal computer or related accessory selling for more than $750. Sales tax holiday is next week PLEASESEETAX PAGE5 PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKMarion Oaks waterfallA ribbon-cutting ceremony took place Tuesday, July 23, at the waterfall at the entrance to Marion Oaks.

Greene also pointed out that The State Road 200 Corridor and Station 21 response area will gain two crew members per shift as well as the new engine. The swap of personnel came to light at the recent State Road 200 Coalition meeting when volunteer Dave Heller told members about the upcoming change and spoke of an email he had received from Richard Maxwell, chief of operations. In the memo, obtained by the Citizenvia a public records request to the county and also provided by a volunteer, Maxwell said: Admin is still aiming to make the move of the station at the end of this month. Currently were making sure all the logistical items are in place to do so. Additionally, it is with high probability that Tanker 21 and Air Trailer 21 will be relocated to other stations. In regards to when, we do not have a set date for either of them. Station 21 will operate at the same level as far as 2 rescues and a first response ALS Quint, instead of an engine. As soon as I get firm dates I will get them to you thanks. One group that is upset with the change is the volunteer organization at Station 21, which is extensive. The volunteers respond to calls, have raised funds for equipment at the station, and help provide cool drinks, etc. to firefighters who have to be on a scene for a long time. Heller, officer in charge of the volunteers, told the Coalition there would be no room for volunteers when the move is made. He indicated that the change would come by July 30, but Greene said it would happen before the end of the year, but was endeavoring to get more information on a date. However, Greene added that they would not displace Friendship Station 21 volunteers. She said the Class A Engine, used by volunteers but provided by MCFR, would remain at Station 21. She added, The brush truck, for which Friendship Station 21 volunteers raised funds, will remain at Station 21. In a July newsletter to the volunteers, Linda McFarland, board president, wrote: MCFR has recently acquired vehicles, one being a Quint (ladder truck) which is now to be placed at Station 21/FVFD along with a full career firefighter personnel change. Plans are also in place to remove some vehicles that mostly volunteers respond with to the scene such as the tanker and rehab vehicle. As of this writing FVFD volunteers have not received official notification of all proposed changes except those presented to the July SR 200 Coalition meeting. Due to budget cuts on peoples mind now, which could eventually affect paid personnel, believe it is imperative that FVFD be able to remain viable. We will endeavor to keep you informed of any changes as we receive them. The complete text of the newsletter can be found on Page 27. The volunteers werent the only ones who hadnt received official notification. Two county commissioners and the county administrator, who attended the dedication of the Marion Oaks waterfall Tuesday, each said they had not been notified about the upcoming move.

FIRECONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Read the classifieds SCHOOLCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The school would be built in to 15 years, according to discussion at the meeting. The possible front entrance to the school, according to talks at the meeting, would be on Marion Oaks Manor, the street that runs east and west behind SummerGlen. The road is paved only to the entrance of the development, then turns into a dirt road. From the east, the same road is Southeast 165th Street, which extends westward from 20th Avenue Road and the Interstate for about half a mile as a paved road, then turns into the east end of the same dirt road that starts at the end of Marion Oaks Manor. According to discussion, this road would be paved all the way through. Marion Oaks Manor, which starts at County Road 484, is a wide road with plenty of right of way for four lanes, except for one small stretch, until just before it gets to SummerGlen. Something else that would upset the residents in the area is that Manor/165th may become a major eastwest thoroughfare. In the countys 20year plan, there is another overpass/flyover in the future, and it would connect 165th west of I-75 with County Road 42 near Pedro on the east of the highway. When this is completed, the new road would connect County Road 484 directly with points east, going through Marion Oaks and adjacent to SummerGlen, including U.S. 301 and 441 near Summerfield and The Villages. No final decision was made at the meeting, but when Herlihy was asked about other nearby sites, he pointed out deficiencies in each, and said that this was the best site.

E The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: Hurricane Sandy brought more sea water onto shorelines than Id ever witnessed before and many communities near where I live are now being required to raise their homes up. What is the prognosis for sea level rise in the years immediately ahead? -Scott P., Fairfield, CT Since sea level measurements were first recorded, in 1870, global averages have risen almost eight inches. The annual rate of rise has been 0.13 inches over the past 20 years, which is close to twice the average from the previous 80 years. Future estimates for sea levels vary according to region but most Earth scientists agree that sea levels are expected to rise at a greater pace than during the last 50 years. Predicting the amount of rise is an inexact science and depends on many factors including climate change and ice sheet flows. The U.S. National Research Council predicts a possible sea level rise of between 22 and 29 inches over the 21st century in the U.S. Sea levels are anticipated to continue rising for centuries. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), land elevation changes also have a large impact on the effects of rising water levels. Subsidence (sinking) or uplift (rising) of the land can help determine the relative sea level rise. The EPAs relative sea level estimates, assuming a two foot global sea level rise by 2100, are 2.3 feet at New York City, 2.9 feet at Hampton Roads, Virginia, 3.5 feet at Galveston, Texas and one foot at Neah Bay in Washington state. The main factors contributing to sea level rise are thermal expansion (created by an increase in ocean water temperatures) and the melting of ice caps and glaciers. Human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels, combined with natural activities, have contributed to the rise of the earths surface temperature over the past century. According to National Geographic, about 80 percent of this additional heat is absorbed by the oceans. The above factors are well studied, but more research is still being done on how climate change will impact large ice sheets in areas such as Greenland and the Antarctic. An extra foot of sea level rise could be a possibility depending on what happens with these larger ice sheets. Even small changes in sea levels can have adverse effects on coastal areas. Erosion, flooding of wetlands, aquifer and agricultural soil contamination and habitat loss for fish, birds and plants are all problems resulting from rising sea levels. Also, higher sea levels usually mean more destructive weather events as storm surges get bigger and more powerful and devastate everything in their way. Coastal communities will suffer the most, as flooding from rising water levels will force millions of people out of their homes. As for what can be done, reducing our collective carbon footprint is no doubt the first and most important step. Individuals should drive and fly less, walk and bicycle more and take advantage of public transit. But sweeping policy changes will have the most impact: A recent commitment by the Obama White House to require coal-burning power plants and other large industrial operations to minimize greenhouse gas Rise in sea levels likely to continue EARTH TALK PHOTO BY THE BERKESMost Earth scientists agree that future sea levels will rise at a greater pace than during the last 50 years. Coastal communities will suffer the most, as flooding from rising water levels will force millions of people out of their homes.

He said that some people were not happy with the stock performances, and that the CEO of the company is leaving. Thats created a lot of buzz. He commented that the issue is not new. He said that a couple of people saw the opportunity for financial gain by making the complaint that the hospital told staff to admit patients rather than keeping them for observation, so that more insurance payments could kick in.

Sizemore reviews local repair facilities for the Mac at this months meeting. Tech tips will follow his presentation. Meetings are held in the St. George Anglican Cathedral Parish Hall, 5646 S.E. 28th St., Ocala. Visitors are always welcome. Check our website at http://ocalamug.org for additional information.Thursday, Sept. 5 CERT training announcedA 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. For more information and for an application, contact Bob Conn, Trainer, at 352-812-0853.

One or two hours can be a blessing to our patients and families receiving hospice care. Sitting with patients, while caregivers run errands, or go to Dr. appts. can be so rewarding and fulfilling. If you are interested in becoming an Odyssey Hospice, Bedside Blessing Volunteer, please contact, Laura Roweton @ 352-622-9331 or lroweton@odsyhealth.com Friendship Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. Newsletter July 2013 submitted by Linda McFarland The Friendship Volunteer Fire Department Inc (FVFD) began in the early 1980s as an all volunteer station. The area continued to grow and local citizens wanted to ensure safety for all concerned and in 1990 a charter was obtained from Tallahassee incorporating the station and a Marion County career fire/rescue crew was assigned with the volunteers. In late s the FVFD rearranged its command structure and currently has positions for Captain, Lieutenant, and Board members consisting of President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and three Directors. Over the years, FVFD continued to grow with equipment and responsibilities. Personnel, along with a station address change, has occurred which brings us to today. There are eight volunteers qualified to answer calls when not working their regular jobs. Volunteers continue to work and train to maintain all Florida and Marion county standards and requirements. The calls reported for year 2013 (Jan thru Jun) are structure fires 28, grass fires 43, vehicle fires 04, vehicle crashes 83, rehab 06, alarms 17, illegal burns 03, citizen assist 03. Recently two volunteers completed a call in Grass 521 when another call sounded regarding an accident on I-75. They responded and had the fire danger under control before any other equipment or firefighters could arrive and received praise for a job well done by the responding career Captain. FVFD owns the 521Grass truck which is to be re-fitted with equipment box to prevent injuries while in use. Marion County Fire Rescue Hdqts (MCFR) has been asked for permission to provide a shelter area for this truck to prevent further environmental damage when outside. MCFR has recently acquired vehicles, one being a Quint (ladder truck) which is now to be placed at Station 21/FVFD along with a full career firefighter personnel change. Plans are also in place to remove some vehicles that mostly volunteers respond with to the scene such as the tanker and rehab vehicle. As of this writing FVFD volunteers have not received official notification of all proposed changes except those presented to the July SR 200 Coalition meeting. Due to budget cuts on peoples mind now, which could eventually affect paid personnel, believe it is imperative that FVFD be able to remain viable. We will endeavor to keep you informed of any changes as we receive them. FVFD wishes to thank the community for your response to the fund drive. Thanks also to Oak Run community for letting us participate in the July 4th parade. Our monthly meetings are open to the public and minutes are always posted at the station. WE WILL SPEAK WITH ANYONE WISHING TO JOIN OUR VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTING TEAM. Call (352) 8971427 and your call will be returned with qualifying information. As some posters say, WE NEED YOU!!! Also need a volunteer for Board Treasurer. Current one keeps excellent books and records and position will not be difficult to assume. Friendship Volunteer Fire Department newsletter Donations sought for vet homeStaff members from the Gentiva Home Health and Hospice offices here will be blanketing the county throughout August, distributing food collection bags and gathering donations for the Ocala Ritz Veterans Village and Marion County School Backpack Program as part of the companys 8th Annual Food Drive. As part of the Gentiva Health Services family of home health and hospice providers, employees at the Gentiva Home Health and Hospice Ocala offices and their fellow employees around the country are placing the food collection bags at various healthcare facilities in their respective communities and will collect their harvest during the entire month of August.

As active members of the community, we know that food banks, pantries and other charitable organizations continue to face increasing demands due to our troubling economy, said Cathy LaPaugh, Gentiva Hospices Ocala Executive Director. We look forward to working with many area health organizations, and we encourage local healthcare providers to contact us for more information on how they and their employees can participate in this community effort.

Friday, July 26, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, July 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) With new facts to work with, you should feel more confident in moving ahead. But continue to do so at an unhurried pace so you can spot details you might otherwise miss. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Taking on that new project could be one of your smarter career moves. Expect a surprising show of support from someone who had always been a critic. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might feel youre too busy to undertake a new responsibility. But check it out before making decisions. What you learn could persuade you to change your mind. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You feel quite content enjoying all the comforts of home right now. But the urge to travel grows stronger, and by weeks end, you could begin packing your bags. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A hectic period begins to ease up, but that doesnt mean the Fine Feline can do much catnapping these days. You need to finish those old tasks and prepare for new ones. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Expect to get some good news about your financial situation by weeks end. But it could still be too early to rush out with a long shopping list of things to buy. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your management skills make an impression on some workplace VIPs who might be looking for someone like you to take on an upcoming project. Good luck. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Meeting a former adversary might be unsettling at first. But time has softened hard feelings, and you could be on the brink of starting a new relationship. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A troubling situation close to home might cause you to change your travel plans. But getting all the facts before you act might cause you to reconsider. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might be quite alone right now in deciding to support a major workplace shift. But others will join you as new information supports your bold move. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A former coworker returns with news that could persuade you to reassess recently made plans. Be sure to consult with a trusted colleague before you act. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your motives behind a recent decision could be called into question by a rival. But once you present the facts, all doubts will be resolved. Enjoy an arts-rich weekend. BORN THIS WEEK: While you love being the center of attention, your generous heart allows you to share the attention with others. BY JEFF BRYAN Riverland NewsDorothy once quipped, while clicking her Ruby Red Slippers three times, theres no place like home. For many who play golf at the end of the Rainbow, the nine-hole municipal course is home. Their second home also got a major boost of recognition, earning the distinction of being the third best nine-hole course in the state by Golf Digest. I think its wonderful, said Don DeLaney, who owns and manages the course with his wife, Linda. I dont know how they determined the criteria or how we were selected, but it is great recognition. But for those who regularly swing their sticks at the regulation-sized, par 36 course, they already knew Rainbows End was a special oasis and many know the two key reasons for it: Don and Linda DeLaney. The DeLaneys took ownership of the course approximately four years ago, dedicating their time to not only improving the facilities and course, but also making it a welcoming, family friendly environment for players. When I come here, its like coming home, said Scott Law, who holds the course record with a 5-under 31. Theres no other way to describe it. Its like being at home. Law, who has played at Rainbows End for the past nine years, said under Don and Linda, the course and facilities have shown great improvement. In addition to the renovations, Law said, the DeLaneys have made it a priority to make everyone feel welcome, by hosting special events such as the Twilight Points League from spring through fall and the night golf tournaments during the summer months. Theyre wonderful, Law said. Don and Linda have done so much to make improvements to the course, but I think what most people come here for is the atmosphere and environment. Its a great course, and Don has really done a great job of taking care of it and making it better. Don and Linda are a great team, and I might get in trouble for saying this, but Linda is the best cook in Dunnellon. Here meals are outstanding. I think what makes Rainbows End so special is them, and they deserve the recognition they received and I hope it pays off for them. Ken Derleth, another local resident who plays regularly at the course for the past three years, agreed with Law. Its an enjoyable course, where you can have fun and relax and not feel pressured, he explained. And there are a lot of good people who come out here and its close to home. Its like home. Added Jack LeBarron: Thats exactly what it is. Everyone is a part of a family out here, and Don and Linda get a lot of credit for that. Everyone seems to know each other and youll see people of all ages out here playing together. Their one complaint? Sometimes the beer is too warm, they joked. Thats certainly another dimension regular players and visitors alike can hear: joking and laughter, between everyone, including the owners. We give Don a hard time, and he gives us a hard time too, said Randy McCoin, who plays in the Tuesday night Twilight Points Game as often as possible. But I think its part of what makes everyone feel so welcome. In addition to that, McCoin said, the DeLaneys make it a point to get to know their customer base. They know everyone by their first name, he said. Thats one thing that left an impression on me. My brother, Joe, used to come out and play here a lot with me. He hasnt been able to because he got married, but Don always asks about him. He always asks, Hows Joe? Hows married life treating him? And Linda, shes the same way. I remember being in the clubhouse and Linda was in the back and I was talking to Don and some others, and she bellows from the kitchen, Is that Randy? For her to know peoples voice, thats amazing. For Don DeLaney, what his customers say about the course as well as he and his wife, thats recognition enough. Will Golf Digests ranking mean additional customers? I dont know for sure, and yes, we hope it does, he explained. But knowing how much those who come here enjoy it that means a lot. And the DeLaneys pride themselves on providing a family atmosphere. Were not a big, private country club with all sorts of amenities, he said. So what else do we have to offer? We can offer folks the chance to come out, play golf and have fun and feel like they are always welcome.

Friday, July 26, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING 8~ Friday, July 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com BY TERRY BLANKENSHIP Special to the CitizenIf you have diabetes and are on Medicare, you have an important decision to make and make fast. You have probably heard that Medicare changed the system through which you get your diabetes testing supplies on July 1. So unlike before, when you could order supplies from thousands of mail order companies, only 18 companies can provide you with your testing supplies today. There is little question that this new system will be better in the long run. The government will save money and you will see your co-pay and deductible amounts decrease. For example, patients who tested one time a day before July 1 have an average co-pay of approximately $14.47 on their testing supplies. Now that July 1 has passed, for the same order, the copay will decrease to approximately $4.49. This is a savings to you of almost 70 percent! The actual cost may be even lower or no cost at all if you have secondary insurance. Yet despite these significant benefits, in the short term this new system is causing confusion for patients who must change providers. They dont know where to begin. And this makes them vulnerable to scammers who might see an opportunity to trick patients into giving personal information. At Diabetes Care Club, we have heard these types of concerns from people who call searching for a new provider. They are rightly apprehensive about moving to another company and dont know exactly what questions to ask. Patients wonder what matters most when choosing a provider. And, of course, the answer to that question depends on what the patient values most. Still, after years in the diabetes care industry, I believe there are some key points that patients and their caregivers should consider before selecting a provider to trust with their healthcare needs. How much experience does the provider have? A provider should have a proven record of excellence in distributing diabetes supplies and responding to large numbers of customers. If you receive a call or email from a provider and are unsure of their legitimacy, it is important to check your sources before providing any personal information. Medicare will not call patients about this change so if you receive a call claiming to be from Medicare, it is a scam. Is the provider big enough to handle more customers without disruption? A provider should be able to explain in detail how it plans to handle the thousands of new customers it will begin to receive now that the deadline has passed. Is diabetes the providers main focus? Ideally, a provider should make diabetes care its top priority rather than spreading its resources over a range of medical issues. What ordering options does the provider offer? A provider should allow patients to order testing supplies by phone, email, or online and offer convenient hours for customer support. Does the provider accept assignment? All mail-order providers must accept assignment, which means they cannot charge more than the prices set by Medicare. But retail outlets like pharmacies do not have to accept assignment and can charge more. It is important to ask to make sure you are not paying added costs. What products does the provider stock? A quality provider should offer a wide range of products so that patients can get a product that best meets their needs. Does the provider handle all the paperwork? A quality provider will handle any paperwork associated with Medicare, saving patients time and effort with these confusing forms. The University of Florida has another football player in trouble, something that has seemingly grown into an epidemic. This time it was linebacker Antonio Morrison. And why was he in the news? He was accused of barking at a police dog. No, you didnt read that wrong. He was barking at a police dog. And now hes in the doghouse, sort of, with the Gator football program. Over the weekend a deputy was investigating a disturbance near a hotel and club on Southwest 13th Street in Gainesville. The time on the Alachua County Sheriffs report was 3:43 a.m. You know, the time when most decent Americans, other than those who have to work overnight, are home asleep. Morrison walked up to the police car and started barking at the dog, which, of course, barked back (Morrison says the dog barked first that was his excuse). He was told to wait, refused to cooperate and was arrested because he interfered with the deputy who was trying to investigate his original call. However, the state attorneys office called the charges inappropriate. Charges or not, it was still 4 oclock in the morning. A few weeks ago, Morrison, a 19year-old sophomore from Bolingbrook, Illinois, was accused of battery for allegedly punching a bouncer at a nightclub, who refused to allow him in at a discount rate. After this weekends incident, hes was facing a two-game suspension. There was no word on Wednesday whether that would be changed after the charges were dropped. Two games? Gee, dont be too rough on the guy. That means hell miss games against Toledo and Miami. While the Hurricanes game could be considered a big one, its not an SEC contest. Morrison could be back for the league opener against Tennessee. But there are other questions that have to be raised. Why is a football player out at nearly 4 in the morning. Dont coaches have curfews any more? And dont tell me its because its summer. If hes here, and not in Illinois, that means hes probably taking advantage of his scholarship, and should be subject to some rules. What about the fact that hes 19 years old and was involved in a fight with a bouncer at a nightclub. Should we pass a state law that you have to be 21 to even enter one of these establishments, much less be served a drink? Undoubtedly, other colleges have the same problems with their athletes. But Florida is supposedly an elite football program, and the standards should equal that standing in the community. It makes you wonder if theres a leadership problem at the university that, one of these days, is going to blow up in somebodys face. Why do players behave this way? The cynic among us might answer, Because they can. But its much more than that. Players are given celebrity status in the community, and they feel that deserves special treatment. And why do they feel entitled to that? Well, we all have to take the blame. Every time you buy a Gator hat, pay for a Gator license plate, or even sit down on Saturday afternoon and watch the game, you are making those players feel like they are the most important players in the world. Wed like to see the players kept at home in the wee hours, behaving more like adults than little children. The only good thing to come out of this is Gator fans now know they have someone who can bark back at that University of Georgia mascot, you know, the bulldog, when they take the field in Jacksonville.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Were not sure who sets the County Commission agenda or how they do it, but last weeks zoning part of the agenda had two flaws, one major and the other inconvenient. First was the next-to-last zoning item. Heres how it was labeled: SU Summur LLC, special use permit in A-1, 160 acres. That was it. Now ask yourself, what was this special use zoning issue about. You would never know it without going into the backup material, but this was a permit to allow construction of a new high school in Marion Oaks, adjacent to the southern boundary of SummerGlen. Granted, if you read the backup material, it gives you all the particulars about the case, but you had to click the backup PDF, and you had a choice of two, to get to the meat of the subject. If the subject line on the agenda had said, after the acres, to construct a high school in Marion Oaks near SummerGlen, it would have been instant information for the public that wants to know what is going on in the county. The public records law was not violated in this case. But the duty of the county to keep the residents properly informed surely was. Citizens shouldnt have to wade through all the legalese of backup material to find out one simple thing what is this land to be used for? The second problem, to us, concerned where this item and the following item, the rezoning of 55-plus acres in southwest Marion County were placed. The rezoning had already been heard a couple of times, the developer was told to come back with a plan, he had held a last-minute meeting with the residents of the area who turned out in force for this meeting. This item, though, was last on the zoning agenda. The people who were there, and there were many, had to sit through a discussion of more than an hour on the new high school, which isnt even going to be built for at least 10 years. And please dont tell us that items are put on the agenda in order of being received. This rezoning was continued from a hearing in May. So to those county officials who put items on the agenda, please use some common sense when setting up the next meeting. Give a little consideration to the constituents who have to sit there and listen to all this stuff. Just because you might have to be there for the whole thing, doesnt mean they should be forced to listen. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

The first sight and sounds of the peaceful waters was like the baptism of a new child to be cherished throughout life. We, the homeowners of Marion Oaks, stood with pride to know that this historic landmark was rescued from being bulldozed by the developer. Our homeowners believed in the future of our community enough to invest in our waterfall, and you can be sure it will be the major attraction in the county, perhaps the state, for many, many years. Marion Oaks marches upward and onward, touched by the caring hands of our Maker! A big thank you to our generous taxpayers. Mildred Musho Marion Oaks BY GLENN MOLLETTE Special to the CitizenI was eating lunch with a high school friend recently at an Atlanta airport restaurant. He has worked in customs for eight years. He noted, Everyone working in this restaurant is from someplace else. We were intrigued and started asking those in the busy restaurant their country of origin. Everyone we asked, and there were several, had moved to the United States within the last six years. Many people could never imagine America changing as much as we have. Freedom allows for change, diversity, new ideas and people with completely different backgrounds. Freedom doesnt mean that we have to believe what others believe but it does mean we have to respect the liberty of those who believe it. America is rapidly changing in her appearance. The white race is becoming the minority. African Americans, Hispanics and Latinos will eventually number in the majority. While Christians are still in the majority fewer and fewer people go to church. Christianity is on the verge of being drowned out by other religious movements because they see America as their mission field. Hindu, Islam, Buddhism and any religion that has funds to survive in America are permeating our nation. They are changing the landscape of what once was mostly comprised of Catholics and Protestants. In the center of our changing country we have to remember one relevant fact. This is still the United States of America. We love our freedom. We love our country. We respect the rights of all our citizens who live and work peacefully in our country to make this their home and a good place. I do not expect every American to look like me, talk like me, think like me or act like me. How boring would it be if we were all the same? We are all different. As other nations flood our country the change is only going to accelerate. Ive had the joyous privilege of working with many different people from different countries. I have wonderful friends who are black, white, rich and poor. They are from throughout the United States, and around the world. I would be sad to think that my life relationships would be limited to just a certain cultural group or segment of our population. America will continue to grow more beautiful and stronger as people come legally and we embrace those who love our country and its opportunities. Those who come to our country must come legally and abide by the same laws every citizen abides by. As we work together we can continue to be the best place in the world.

In this book, Bowman tells the story of Jim Bob Wilson, a simple family man and a sports column journalist. He and his family lives in Tangerine County, but being a native of Sandy Beach, he longs to return to his roots. After closing a deal of buying in a simple home in Sandy Beach, he convinces the company he works for to move him from sports column to community column so he can go back to Sandy Beach. Before long, Jim is writing front-page columns about the lives of those around him. Life seems almost perfect. But will this seemingly perfect life for Jim and his family last, or will they soon themselves in a different scenario of life? Bowmans Lifes a (Sandy) Beach, but Watch Out for the Crabs! walks readers to the life of a family, with love, happiness, passion, mystery, and excitement. Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore. John Bowman has been a writer most of his life, writing and editing the last five decades for eight different daily newspapers. He is also an ordained minister. He spent his early years in the same two-story frame house on a sleepy, tree-shaded street, now known as NE Ninth Street, where this story begins.

Patients should expect their provider to cover the costs of shipping and guarantee that testing supplies will arrive on time and in proper condition. I also recommend that patients and their caregivers visit www.NationalDiabetesSupplyFinder.com, a website that helps people find the names of all 18 providers authorized by Medicare and link to their services. Additionally you can contact Medicare directly. My hope is that by arming people with a few key questions and more information, we can help them make a seamless and stress free switch to a provider they trust. In that way, they will be able to rest assured after July 1 that their supplies will be waiting for them in the mailbox, just as always. Terry Blankenship is vice president of DIABETICSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Last week I was tootling along without a care in the world. Actually, I did have several cares but I was ignoring them as much as possible. My basic philosophy is this, the more you ignore something the less you have to deal with it. This, however, does not apply to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Experience has taught me one lesson concerning women, especially wives. They will not stand to be ignored, particularly by their husbands. I have learned the less attention I pay to my wife the more I pay in other areas of life, if you know what I mean. So, ignoring the cares I had last week, I was caught off guard when I received a letter from my credit card company. This was no friendly, how are you, kind of a letter. Nor was it a cheery birthday greeting. I cannot tell you how many times I have reminded them of my birthday but to date they have not picked up on my hint. The ominous letter I did receive informed me that along with millions of other customers my identity had been stolen. The letter went on to assure me I had nothing to worry about and they had the situation well in hand. That is easy for them to say. They know who they are but what about me? When I got the letter I ran to my bathroom and looking into my mirror nothing! My identity was indeed gone. I assure you I will worry until I get to the bottom of this. I will not rest until I know exactly who I am and my identity is fully restored. Of course, there is one problem here. What if when I do recover my identity I dont like myself? Can I exchange it or get my money back? For some reason the personal information of millions of people had been lost or stolen from the security of my credit card company, which begs the question, how secured is my personal information? While I am in the begging mood, another question comes to mind. If someone has stolen my identity, who in the world am I? And, how do I reclaim my identity? As a young person whenever my mother was upset with me about something I had done or did not do, she The age-old query: Who am I, really, in this world? Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder would always look at me and ask, Who do you think you are? If anybody in the world should know who I am it would be my mother. And if she he was wrestling with the same question I was wrestling with, how in the world could I ever come to grips with my personal identity? It is hard enough discovering who you are without somebody casting dispersions upon that very thing. Perhaps my mother and I could work together in solving this problem. After all, two heads are better than one, unless one does not know who he is. I have spent years trying to find myself. Once I thought I found myself but it turned out to be an old pair of socks I lost three years prior. My problem is compounded by this one thing, I did not really know who I was before my identity was stolen. I had my suspicions, of course. However, somewhere in the back of my mind, I really could not come to grips with who I really was in this world. In the course of time, (actually it was a four-course lunch) I have come to several conclusions. First, I am a man. What kind of a man, is anyones guess this point. The truth is that at the root of everything I am, I am a man. PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 For many of us our thoughts often turn to exercise to get our bodies back in shape and loose weight. Here in Pun Alley whenever I feel like exercise, I lie down until the feeling passes and then consider some stories for you to read for some mental exercise.Never too lateConcerned about fitness in her middle 40s, Joyce enrolled in an aerobics class. To her dismay she walked into a room filled with much younger women and decided to combat her sensitivity with humor. As everyone introduced themselves to the group she offered, Im here to get started on my postnatal exercises. The instructor gave her an appraising look. Unexpectedly he inquired, How old is your baby? Twenty-six, she had to reply.No shoes, no shirt, no serviceToms doctor told him that if he would eat naked in front of a mirror, the sight of how overweight he was, combined with having to face just how much he was actually eating, would have a huge impact on his weight loss. The restaurant he tried this at was not amused.BroadwayThe rather broad lady showed up at the theater just before the performance started and handed the usher two tickets. Wheres the other party? asked the usher. Well, said the lady, with a blush, you see one seat is a little small for me and rather uncomfortable so I bought two. But theyre both really for me. Okay with me, lady, the usher replied, scratching his head. Theres just one problem. Your seats are numbers fifty-one and sixty-three.Skinny commentsThe word aerobics came about when the gym instructors got together and said, If were going to charge $25 an hour, we cant call it jumping up and down. The man started going to the gym because he wanted a new weigh of life. In the beginning, God created chocolate, and he saw that it was good. Then he separated the light from the dark, and it was even better. The extreme seven-day diet makes one weak. Aerobics is a series of strenuous exercises that help convert fats, sugars, and starches into aches, pains, and cramps. Does running late count as exercise? The trouble with jogging is that by the time you realize youre not in shape for it, its too far to walk back. In a pub one fat guy said to the other, Your round. The other one said, So are you, you fat pig. Ive never run hard enough to get a runners high, but Ive run behind people on a rocky path and gotten stoned. If your dog is fat, youre not getting enough exercise. When I was younger, I looked forward to getting up early in the morning to exercise. Now, getting out of bed in the morning is my exercise. She has flabby thighs, but fortunately her stomach covers them. You know that youre out of shape when you cant pull supermarket-shopping carts apart. My exercise club can get extremely busy. If all the exercise machines are in use, I usually wait in the snack bar and have a chocolate sundae until its my turn. Husband: Ive been dieting for a month now. Wife: Oh really? How much have you lost? Husband: days.Runners highCarols daughter convinced her to try jogging and even took her to a special store to be fitted for running shoes. The salesperson explained that it was important to loosen up a bit before setting off to jog, so each day she laces up the running shoes and has a glass or two of wine. If the urge to jog persists, Carol simply increases the loosening up exercise accordingly.Real lossI joined a gym last year spending $65 for monthly dues. When I tried to cancel my contract to prevent further fees the manager insisted that I provide a legitimate reason. I explained I had not lost a pound since joining. The snippy young man refused my request claiming my reason was not valid. Apparently you have to show up for the gym to have any effect on your weight. Actually, I dont need the gym. I get plenty of exercise in my daily life. Climbing the walls, chasing my own tail, beating around the bush, and making mountains out of molehills and thats all before lunch.

This, of course, is the most baffling of my identity. What it means to be a husband differs from wife to wife. Fortunately, for me, I have only one wife, but even her idea of a husband changes from one moment to the next. I am never sure what she expects of me as a husband. Once I thought I had it all figured out but someone, I am not mentioning any names, changed the rules. Third, I am a father. As a father, my role consists of bankrolling the childhood adventures of my children; financing their higher education career, hoping they get married before my money runs out. To this day, I am not sure if I made it or not. Fourth, I am a grandfather. This is the most well defined role I have. The great thing about being a grandfather is, nobody expects much from us. Our role is covertly to help our grandchildren make the lives of their parents as tempestuous as possible. Revenge is sweet when laced with jellybeans. Sugar highs are a grandfathers best retaliation. The most important thing about my identity quest is, I am a Christian. This undergirds everything else I may or may not be. My Christianity is the foundation upon which everything else is built. I take comfort in the Bible; These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. (1 John 5:13 KJV). When my identity is rooted in believing in Jesus Christ, everything else in my life falls into place.Rev. James L.

Friday, July 26, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, July 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com The theme was Back to the Sixties and 247 happy residents took part in this; the 2nd 100 days of Summer celebration. Jay and Fred OHern did a magnificent job of getting all the people through the food line in a timely manner; the band played favorites while everyone ate; and happy faces were abundant. Sloppy Joes; five bean salad and potato salad were served up from the kitchen with super efficiency and speed. This meant that everyone was sitting and eating within a half hour of the serving line opening up. Southern Silk Band played old favorites while everyone ate and conversed. Their repertoire was endless and many of the songs brought back fond memories to those assembled. After the meal, the band began to crank out favorite tunes and releases from every generation. Of course a favorite, Red Solo Cup was played with the Cherrywood gang all joining in. A special highlight of the evening came when T.T.s granddaughter, Sophia took the stage and sang, Rumor Has It. She is only 10 years old but her voice rang out like a much older accomplished vocalist. Her number was a special treat. Mario Zacco, sponsor of this and all the 100 days of Summer events was on scene to make sure everything was going smoothly. He was greeted and thanked by many people for putting on such a grand event. At 7 p.m. the door prize was raffled off and 50/50 drawings were held. Winner of the door prize was Wanda Huff. This is the second 100 Days of Summer celebration and the second time shes won the door prize. Some people have all the luck. 50/50 Drawing winners were Jim Porch; Cookie Walters and Fran Meyer. We congratulate our winners and thank them for coming out. Jay and Fred OHern did a fantastic job heading up this special dinner/dance. They wish to thank the other volunteers who made the evening possible. Those of us who see behind the scenes know how much work and effort goes into putting an event such as this together. We are grateful to Mario Zacco for his generosity and for all those who worked to make this evening possible. Our volunteers included Peggy Konar; Beverly Idone; Joan and David Siegel; Trude Smith; and Donna James who worked in the kitchen. Marty Duesel and Dick Francis kept the drinks flowing while Mick James; Fred OHern and Rich Becotte provided support. Geri Watrouse was our hostess for this event; Monica Becotte sold 50/50 tickets and Holly Bragdon provided the photos. Clean up was done by the Cherrywood Property Management teams Fred Potter, while Greg provided security. All net proceeds from these events go to Habitat for Humanity Project Patriot. Social Committee Chair Jay OHern put this all together and he should be justly proud of his efforts. Everyone had a great time.Trivia NightQuizmaster Rich Hurley proved on Wednesday evening that most of us, Dont Know Jack. That was the subject matter for this months Trivia contest and Rich was able to come up with some really obscure and bizarre questions. Me thinks he lost a lot of sleep putting this quiz together. The team of Donna, Fred, Gene and Jay took first place while two other teams tied for second place; sharing partial bragging rights. Everyone had a great time with lots of laughs and challenges by the emcee. Next month the subject will be Classic Trivia including such topics as entertainment; history; sports and everyones favorite, geography. Donna James will be our quizmaster for that night so you know youll learn a lot. Having been an instructor in the past, not only does Donna explain the questions but she explains the answers at the end as well. We all leave better educated after an entertaining and fun evening. 100 Days of Summer continues at Cherrywood Cherrywood John Everlove These were the recent trivia players at Cherrywood. PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW By Nathaniel Rich Young calamity howler Mitchell Zukor turns his catastrophe paranoia into a lucrative career. When this fear-stuffed novel begins, Mitchell is a student at the University of Chicago and already obsessed with disaster: He envisioned a nuclear exchange with China, a modern black plague; an asteroid tearing apart the crust of the earth, unleashing a new dark age. Confirming his apocalyptic vision, Seattle is completely destroyed by an earthquake. For the first time in his life Mitchell is not alone: On that Tuesday morning everyone was Mitchell Zukor. Everyone obsessed over Richter magnitudes and fatality tolls and worst-case scenarios. His obsessions vindicated, Mitchell graduates and heads for New York City to be a numbers cruncher in a Wall Street firm housed in the Empire State Building until a sinister entrepreneur named Alec Charnoble lures him to his own new Future World where he runs an ingenious scam. After Seattle thousands of workers sued their employers for putting them at risk. Future World promises to protect these companies from exorbitant lawsuits by offering them detailed disaster-planning advice. Zukor is the perfect salesman because he believes in the nightmarish scenarios he pitches. Soon Future World and Zukor are rolling in money. Among Mitchells purchases with his new money are an upgraded apartment and a Psycho Canoe made by a Nova Scotia woman who collected objects from her natural environment and painted them in unusual ways. Luckily for Mitchell the canoe is fully functional with two paddles. Luckily because a Category 3 hurricane named Tammy puts New York City under water. (This is not a spoiler because the books cover depicts it.) Meticulously, Rich recounts how Mitchell and his co-worker Jane row through the rising tides of Manhattan in the Psycho Canoe, a chilling excursion that takes them to corpse-clogged Grand Central Station. Throughout the novel Mitchell communicates with a young woman with a bizarre heart disorder called Brugada (a real illness discovered in 1986) that strikes its victim dead at any moment though they are otherwise healthy. Richs dragging Elsa Bruner through the book does not really work well. Another flaw is that Rich throws too many statistics to the reader at the outset. Still if youre tired of the same old, same old in your reading, you might give this talented writer a try.

Friday, July 26, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, July 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com It only costs $1 each to play Trivia and the fun is priceless. All proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Fund which has received more than $300 from our Trivia Nights so far. Please join our happy group on Wednesday, Aug. 21 at 7 p.m. CERT MeetingOur Community Emergency Response Team held a special meeting on Wednesday morning, July 17 especially geared toward our residents who live alone. Dewella Markland and David Siegel, team leaders for CERT brought a wealth of information to the table for the more than 20 people who attended. Living alone presents certain problems that are not faced by those who share their homes with a mate. If a single person falls, for example, if they are unable to reach a phone or an alarm of some kind, they might lie on the floor for hours or even days. Even worse, should a single person fall or because of a medical condition, lose consciousness, they might actually die before help cant be brought to them. We dont want this to happen to any of our residents. We seniors have made it this far in life by making plans for various contingencies in life. We can not stop doing that just because we are advancing in years. It is easy to get into a routine and go about our daily chores without thinking about the possibilities of something bad happening to us. For those who live alone, this is especially true. One of the most important things we can do is fill out an emergency form for our CERT team. This confidential form is only used in case of emergencies and has not only a place to fill in any special needs that the individual might have but also an emergency contact number. These helpful forms are available at the office and they need to be filled out; turned in and given to the CERT team. Even if youve filled one out before, make sure that its updated. People move; change phone numbers and the like so make sure you have an up to date form on file. Another helpful hint is to have a File of Life magnet for your refrigerator. These little packets are free and emergency personnel are trained to look for them when they respond. Inside, all of your medications are listed along with your doctors name and hospital. You can obtain these packets from David or from your local medical facility. As we learned in grade school and swimming classes, you should always have a buddy. You can signal your neighbor that you are OK by opening or closing blinds and drapes in the morning and in the evening for example. If your neighbor sees your blinds shut in the morning, they can call and make sure you are OK. There are many other tips and ideas for safely living alone. Life Alert systems and keeping your cell phone with you at all times are just a couple of ways to be safe. Keep checking this column for a meeting in the near future. We plan to compile a booklet with several other plans and ideas that will be helpful to seniors who are living alone. In the meantime, talk with friends and neighbors so they will know you are okay; check on your single friends and be aware of anything that look suspicious. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 Some of the Cherrywood residents at the CERT meeting. PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE16 BiloxiTime is running out for the great trip to Biloxi on Sept. 15.

All this fun can be yours for just $159 so call today and book your exciting trip to Biloxi.From your reporterThis past week the Marion County Commission approved a new housing project that will impact several area residents, including a number of Cherrywood home owners. This action was taken in spite of a significant public outcry. The vote was 4 to 1 to approve the housing development that will require new traffic control devices; require road improvements; require more services such as police and fire and in general, probably cost the county more financially than the tax revenue it will create. In a recent opinion column some one mentioned you cant fight city hall. He was right of course. To me; an average guy on the street; it doesnt make sense. How can a person all the way from Miami, come to Ocala and develop a subdivision over the objections of Ocala residents. Maybe I dont understand the influence of business over politics; Im not too smart as I said. In lieu of the high unemployment rate in Marion County, it would seem to me that the commission should be courting business development not housing; but thats just me. In any event, Cherrywood will still be a thriving community and a great place to live. If you have any suggestions, comments, or ideas for improving the Cherrywood section of your Citizen newspaper, please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I always enjoy hearing from you, the reader.

their parents can get information on many other services available to give these young people a good start on their education. Theres not much time between now and Aug. 10 so please open your heart and your pocket books a little and donate to this worthy cause. These children are the leaders of the future and believe me; they will need all the help they can get.AARP Safe Driving ClassOn Sept. 9 and 12, the AARP is sponsoring a Safe Driving for Seniors class in our clubhouse. We have openings for 20 people and they are filling up quickly. These informative and educational classes are in session from 9 a.m. until noon. Professional trainers will provide students with up dated laws; safety tips; defensive driving techniques and many other helpful hints on how to be safe on the road. For many of us, it has been a long time since we had drivers education so this refresher course will be very beneficial. Most insurance companies provide reduced auto insurance rates for individuals who have completed this course. Students who attend both full sessions receive a certificate that can be shown to the individuals insurance agent. Check with your agent to see how much you might save. Classes are only $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members. This is a cheap price to pay for learning to be safe on the road and you might make much more than that back in reduced insurance rates. Contact Geri to reserve your seat in this excellent class.Flu shotsFriday, Sept. 6 from 1 until 3 p.m. come to the clubhouse and get your flu shot. VaxCare will be on hand with professionals to get you in and out quickly and efficiently. Nearly everyone should get a flu shot to ward off the dreaded bug that can sometimes be fatal to older folks.

We want everyone around a long time to enjoy all of the activities and events here at Cherrywood so mark your calendar today and be at the clubhouse Sept. 6. NewcomersThis is a special invitation to all of our new residents here in Cherrywood. On Aug. 24 at 9 a.m., the Welcoming Committee will be holding a special coffee hour for you.

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.

Here are some tips to ensure youre choosing the best at your next visit to the market or fish counter:Milk Does a Salmon Good Milk tenderizes salmon and removes any frostbite or fishy taste, so try defrosting salmon in a container of milk for a fresher flavor.Float On, Mussels Mussels love to float. If a mussel sinks to the bottom of a container filled with water, throw it away its a sign of a bad mollusk.R for Really Fresh Oysters taste best when they are harvested during colder weather.

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 26, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, July 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com It only costs $1 each to play Trivia and the fun is priceless. All proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Fund which has received more than $300 from our Trivia Nights so far. Please join our happy group on Wednesday, Aug. 21 at 7 p.m. CERT MeetingOur Community Emergency Response Team held a special meeting on Wednesday morning, July 17 especially geared toward our residents who live alone. Dewella Markland and David Siegel, team leaders for CERT brought a wealth of information to the table for the more than 20 people who attended. Living alone presents certain problems that are not faced by those who share their homes with a mate. If a single person falls, for example, if they are unable to reach a phone or an alarm of some kind, they might lie on the floor for hours or even days. Even worse, should a single person fall or because of a medical condition, lose consciousness, they might actually die before help cant be brought to them. We dont want this to happen to any of our residents. We seniors have made it this far in life by making plans for various contingencies in life. We can not stop doing that just because we are advancing in years. It is easy to get into a routine and go about our daily chores without thinking about the possibilities of something bad happening to us. For those who live alone, this is especially true. One of the most important things we can do is fill out an emergency form for our CERT team. This confidential form is only used in case of emergencies and has not only a place to fill in any special needs that the individual might have but also an emergency contact number. These helpful forms are available at the office and they need to be filled out; turned in and given to the CERT team. Even if youve filled one out before, make sure that its updated. People move; change phone numbers and the like so make sure you have an up to date form on file. Another helpful hint is to have a File of Life magnet for your refrigerator. These little packets are free and emergency personnel are trained to look for them when they respond. Inside, all of your medications are listed along with your doctors name and hospital. You can obtain these packets from David or from your local medical facility. As we learned in grade school and swimming classes, you should always have a buddy. You can signal your neighbor that you are OK by opening or closing blinds and drapes in the morning and in the evening for example. If your neighbor sees your blinds shut in the morning, they can call and make sure you are OK. There are many other tips and ideas for safely living alone. Life Alert systems and keeping your cell phone with you at all times are just a couple of ways to be safe. Keep checking this column for a meeting in the near future. We plan to compile a booklet with several other plans and ideas that will be helpful to seniors who are living alone. In the meantime, talk with friends and neighbors so they will know you are okay; check on your single friends and be aware of anything that look suspicious. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 Some of the Cherrywood residents at the CERT meeting. PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE16 BiloxiTime is running out for the great trip to Biloxi on Sept. 15.

All this fun can be yours for just $159 so call today and book your exciting trip to Biloxi.From your reporterThis past week the Marion County Commission approved a new housing project that will impact several area residents, including a number of Cherrywood home owners. This action was taken in spite of a significant public outcry. The vote was 4 to 1 to approve the housing development that will require new traffic control devices; require road improvements; require more services such as police and fire and in general, probably cost the county more financially than the tax revenue it will create. In a recent opinion column some one mentioned you cant fight city hall. He was right of course. To me; an average guy on the street; it doesnt make sense. How can a person all the way from Miami, come to Ocala and develop a subdivision over the objections of Ocala residents. Maybe I dont understand the influence of business over politics; Im not too smart as I said. In lieu of the high unemployment rate in Marion County, it would seem to me that the commission should be courting business development not housing; but thats just me. In any event, Cherrywood will still be a thriving community and a great place to live. If you have any suggestions, comments, or ideas for improving the Cherrywood section of your Citizen newspaper, please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I always enjoy hearing from you, the reader.

Friday, July 26, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, July 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com The theme was Back to the Sixties and 247 happy residents took part in this; the 2nd 100 days of Summer celebration. Jay and Fred OHern did a magnificent job of getting all the people through the food line in a timely manner; the band played favorites while everyone ate; and happy faces were abundant. Sloppy Joes; five bean salad and potato salad were served up from the kitchen with super efficiency and speed. This meant that everyone was sitting and eating within a half hour of the serving line opening up. Southern Silk Band played old favorites while everyone ate and conversed. Their repertoire was endless and many of the songs brought back fond memories to those assembled. After the meal, the band began to crank out favorite tunes and releases from every generation. Of course a favorite, Red Solo Cup was played with the Cherrywood gang all joining in. A special highlight of the evening came when T.T.s granddaughter, Sophia took the stage and sang, Rumor Has It. She is only 10 years old but her voice rang out like a much older accomplished vocalist. Her number was a special treat. Mario Zacco, sponsor of this and all the 100 days of Summer events was on scene to make sure everything was going smoothly. He was greeted and thanked by many people for putting on such a grand event. At 7 p.m. the door prize was raffled off and 50/50 drawings were held. Winner of the door prize was Wanda Huff. This is the second 100 Days of Summer celebration and the second time shes won the door prize. Some people have all the luck. 50/50 Drawing winners were Jim Porch; Cookie Walters and Fran Meyer. We congratulate our winners and thank them for coming out. Jay and Fred OHern did a fantastic job heading up this special dinner/dance. They wish to thank the other volunteers who made the evening possible. Those of us who see behind the scenes know how much work and effort goes into putting an event such as this together. We are grateful to Mario Zacco for his generosity and for all those who worked to make this evening possible. Our volunteers included Peggy Konar; Beverly Idone; Joan and David Siegel; Trude Smith; and Donna James who worked in the kitchen. Marty Duesel and Dick Francis kept the drinks flowing while Mick James; Fred OHern and Rich Becotte provided support. Geri Watrouse was our hostess for this event; Monica Becotte sold 50/50 tickets and Holly Bragdon provided the photos. Clean up was done by the Cherrywood Property Management teams Fred Potter, while Greg provided security. All net proceeds from these events go to Habitat for Humanity Project Patriot. Social Committee Chair Jay OHern put this all together and he should be justly proud of his efforts. Everyone had a great time.Trivia NightQuizmaster Rich Hurley proved on Wednesday evening that most of us, Dont Know Jack. That was the subject matter for this months Trivia contest and Rich was able to come up with some really obscure and bizarre questions. Me thinks he lost a lot of sleep putting this quiz together. The team of Donna, Fred, Gene and Jay took first place while two other teams tied for second place; sharing partial bragging rights. Everyone had a great time with lots of laughs and challenges by the emcee. Next month the subject will be Classic Trivia including such topics as entertainment; history; sports and everyones favorite, geography. Donna James will be our quizmaster for that night so you know youll learn a lot. Having been an instructor in the past, not only does Donna explain the questions but she explains the answers at the end as well. We all leave better educated after an entertaining and fun evening. 100 Days of Summer continues at Cherrywood Cherrywood John Everlove These were the recent trivia players at Cherrywood. PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW By Nathaniel Rich Young calamity howler Mitchell Zukor turns his catastrophe paranoia into a lucrative career. When this fear-stuffed novel begins, Mitchell is a student at the University of Chicago and already obsessed with disaster: He envisioned a nuclear exchange with China, a modern black plague; an asteroid tearing apart the crust of the earth, unleashing a new dark age. Confirming his apocalyptic vision, Seattle is completely destroyed by an earthquake. For the first time in his life Mitchell is not alone: On that Tuesday morning everyone was Mitchell Zukor. Everyone obsessed over Richter magnitudes and fatality tolls and worst-case scenarios. His obsessions vindicated, Mitchell graduates and heads for New York City to be a numbers cruncher in a Wall Street firm housed in the Empire State Building until a sinister entrepreneur named Alec Charnoble lures him to his own new Future World where he runs an ingenious scam. After Seattle thousands of workers sued their employers for putting them at risk. Future World promises to protect these companies from exorbitant lawsuits by offering them detailed disaster-planning advice. Zukor is the perfect salesman because he believes in the nightmarish scenarios he pitches. Soon Future World and Zukor are rolling in money. Among Mitchells purchases with his new money are an upgraded apartment and a Psycho Canoe made by a Nova Scotia woman who collected objects from her natural environment and painted them in unusual ways. Luckily for Mitchell the canoe is fully functional with two paddles. Luckily because a Category 3 hurricane named Tammy puts New York City under water. (This is not a spoiler because the books cover depicts it.) Meticulously, Rich recounts how Mitchell and his co-worker Jane row through the rising tides of Manhattan in the Psycho Canoe, a chilling excursion that takes them to corpse-clogged Grand Central Station. Throughout the novel Mitchell communicates with a young woman with a bizarre heart disorder called Brugada (a real illness discovered in 1986) that strikes its victim dead at any moment though they are otherwise healthy. Richs dragging Elsa Bruner through the book does not really work well. Another flaw is that Rich throws too many statistics to the reader at the outset.

This, of course, is the most baffling of my identity. What it means to be a husband differs from wife to wife. Fortunately, for me, I have only one wife, but even her idea of a husband changes from one moment to the next. I am never sure what she expects of me as a husband. Once I thought I had it all figured out but someone, I am not mentioning any names, changed the rules. Third, I am a father. As a father, my role consists of bankrolling the childhood adventures of my children; financing their higher education career, hoping they get married before my money runs out. To this day, I am not sure if I made it or not. Fourth, I am a grandfather. This is the most well defined role I have. The great thing about being a grandfather is, nobody expects much from us. Our role is covertly to help our grandchildren make the lives of their parents as tempestuous as possible. Revenge is sweet when laced with jellybeans. Sugar highs are a grandfathers best retaliation. The most important thing about my identity quest is, I am a Christian. This undergirds everything else I may or may not be. My Christianity is the foundation upon which everything else is built. I take comfort in the Bible; These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. (1 John 5:13 KJV). When my identity is rooted in believing in Jesus Christ, everything else in my life falls into place.Rev. James L.

Patients should expect their provider to cover the costs of shipping and guarantee that testing supplies will arrive on time and in proper condition. I also recommend that patients and their caregivers visit www.NationalDiabetesSupplyFinder.com, a website that helps people find the names of all 18 providers authorized by Medicare and link to their services. Additionally you can contact Medicare directly. My hope is that by arming people with a few key questions and more information, we can help them make a seamless and stress free switch to a provider they trust. In that way, they will be able to rest assured after July 1 that their supplies will be waiting for them in the mailbox, just as always. Terry Blankenship is vice president of DIABETICSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Last week I was tootling along without a care in the world. Actually, I did have several cares but I was ignoring them as much as possible. My basic philosophy is this, the more you ignore something the less you have to deal with it. This, however, does not apply to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Experience has taught me one lesson concerning women, especially wives. They will not stand to be ignored, particularly by their husbands. I have learned the less attention I pay to my wife the more I pay in other areas of life, if you know what I mean. So, ignoring the cares I had last week, I was caught off guard when I received a letter from my credit card company. This was no friendly, how are you, kind of a letter. Nor was it a cheery birthday greeting. I cannot tell you how many times I have reminded them of my birthday but to date they have not picked up on my hint. The ominous letter I did receive informed me that along with millions of other customers my identity had been stolen. The letter went on to assure me I had nothing to worry about and they had the situation well in hand. That is easy for them to say. They know who they are but what about me? When I got the letter I ran to my bathroom and looking into my mirror nothing! My identity was indeed gone. I assure you I will worry until I get to the bottom of this. I will not rest until I know exactly who I am and my identity is fully restored. Of course, there is one problem here. What if when I do recover my identity I dont like myself? Can I exchange it or get my money back? For some reason the personal information of millions of people had been lost or stolen from the security of my credit card company, which begs the question, how secured is my personal information? While I am in the begging mood, another question comes to mind. If someone has stolen my identity, who in the world am I? And, how do I reclaim my identity? As a young person whenever my mother was upset with me about something I had done or did not do, she The age-old query: Who am I, really, in this world? Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder would always look at me and ask, Who do you think you are? If anybody in the world should know who I am it would be my mother. And if she he was wrestling with the same question I was wrestling with, how in the world could I ever come to grips with my personal identity? It is hard enough discovering who you are without somebody casting dispersions upon that very thing. Perhaps my mother and I could work together in solving this problem. After all, two heads are better than one, unless one does not know who he is. I have spent years trying to find myself. Once I thought I found myself but it turned out to be an old pair of socks I lost three years prior. My problem is compounded by this one thing, I did not really know who I was before my identity was stolen. I had my suspicions, of course. However, somewhere in the back of my mind, I really could not come to grips with who I really was in this world. In the course of time, (actually it was a four-course lunch) I have come to several conclusions. First, I am a man. What kind of a man, is anyones guess this point. The truth is that at the root of everything I am, I am a man. PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 For many of us our thoughts often turn to exercise to get our bodies back in shape and loose weight. Here in Pun Alley whenever I feel like exercise, I lie down until the feeling passes and then consider some stories for you to read for some mental exercise.Never too lateConcerned about fitness in her middle 40s, Joyce enrolled in an aerobics class. To her dismay she walked into a room filled with much younger women and decided to combat her sensitivity with humor. As everyone introduced themselves to the group she offered, Im here to get started on my postnatal exercises. The instructor gave her an appraising look. Unexpectedly he inquired, How old is your baby? Twenty-six, she had to reply.No shoes, no shirt, no serviceToms doctor told him that if he would eat naked in front of a mirror, the sight of how overweight he was, combined with having to face just how much he was actually eating, would have a huge impact on his weight loss. The restaurant he tried this at was not amused.BroadwayThe rather broad lady showed up at the theater just before the performance started and handed the usher two tickets. Wheres the other party? asked the usher. Well, said the lady, with a blush, you see one seat is a little small for me and rather uncomfortable so I bought two. But theyre both really for me. Okay with me, lady, the usher replied, scratching his head. Theres just one problem. Your seats are numbers fifty-one and sixty-three.Skinny commentsThe word aerobics came about when the gym instructors got together and said, If were going to charge $25 an hour, we cant call it jumping up and down. The man started going to the gym because he wanted a new weigh of life. In the beginning, God created chocolate, and he saw that it was good. Then he separated the light from the dark, and it was even better. The extreme seven-day diet makes one weak. Aerobics is a series of strenuous exercises that help convert fats, sugars, and starches into aches, pains, and cramps. Does running late count as exercise? The trouble with jogging is that by the time you realize youre not in shape for it, its too far to walk back. In a pub one fat guy said to the other, Your round. The other one said, So are you, you fat pig. Ive never run hard enough to get a runners high, but Ive run behind people on a rocky path and gotten stoned. If your dog is fat, youre not getting enough exercise. When I was younger, I looked forward to getting up early in the morning to exercise. Now, getting out of bed in the morning is my exercise. She has flabby thighs, but fortunately her stomach covers them. You know that youre out of shape when you cant pull supermarket-shopping carts apart. My exercise club can get extremely busy. If all the exercise machines are in use, I usually wait in the snack bar and have a chocolate sundae until its my turn. Husband: Ive been dieting for a month now. Wife: Oh really? How much have you lost? Husband: days.Runners highCarols daughter convinced her to try jogging and even took her to a special store to be fitted for running shoes. The salesperson explained that it was important to loosen up a bit before setting off to jog, so each day she laces up the running shoes and has a glass or two of wine. If the urge to jog persists, Carol simply increases the loosening up exercise accordingly.Real lossI joined a gym last year spending $65 for monthly dues. When I tried to cancel my contract to prevent further fees the manager insisted that I provide a legitimate reason. I explained I had not lost a pound since joining. The snippy young man refused my request claiming my reason was not valid. Apparently you have to show up for the gym to have any effect on your weight. Actually, I dont need the gym. I get plenty of exercise in my daily life. Climbing the walls, chasing my own tail, beating around the bush, and making mountains out of molehills and thats all before lunch.

Friday, July 26, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING 8~ Friday, July 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com BY TERRY BLANKENSHIP Special to the CitizenIf you have diabetes and are on Medicare, you have an important decision to make and make fast. You have probably heard that Medicare changed the system through which you get your diabetes testing supplies on July 1. So unlike before, when you could order supplies from thousands of mail order companies, only 18 companies can provide you with your testing supplies today. There is little question that this new system will be better in the long run. The government will save money and you will see your co-pay and deductible amounts decrease. For example, patients who tested one time a day before July 1 have an average co-pay of approximately $14.47 on their testing supplies. Now that July 1 has passed, for the same order, the copay will decrease to approximately $4.49. This is a savings to you of almost 70 percent! The actual cost may be even lower or no cost at all if you have secondary insurance. Yet despite these significant benefits, in the short term this new system is causing confusion for patients who must change providers. They dont know where to begin. And this makes them vulnerable to scammers who might see an opportunity to trick patients into giving personal information. At Diabetes Care Club, we have heard these types of concerns from people who call searching for a new provider. They are rightly apprehensive about moving to another company and dont know exactly what questions to ask. Patients wonder what matters most when choosing a provider. And, of course, the answer to that question depends on what the patient values most. Still, after years in the diabetes care industry, I believe there are some key points that patients and their caregivers should consider before selecting a provider to trust with their healthcare needs. How much experience does the provider have? A provider should have a proven record of excellence in distributing diabetes supplies and responding to large numbers of customers. If you receive a call or email from a provider and are unsure of their legitimacy, it is important to check your sources before providing any personal information. Medicare will not call patients about this change so if you receive a call claiming to be from Medicare, it is a scam. Is the provider big enough to handle more customers without disruption? A provider should be able to explain in detail how it plans to handle the thousands of new customers it will begin to receive now that the deadline has passed. Is diabetes the providers main focus? Ideally, a provider should make diabetes care its top priority rather than spreading its resources over a range of medical issues. What ordering options does the provider offer? A provider should allow patients to order testing supplies by phone, email, or online and offer convenient hours for customer support. Does the provider accept assignment? All mail-order providers must accept assignment, which means they cannot charge more than the prices set by Medicare. But retail outlets like pharmacies do not have to accept assignment and can charge more. It is important to ask to make sure you are not paying added costs. What products does the provider stock? A quality provider should offer a wide range of products so that patients can get a product that best meets their needs. Does the provider handle all the paperwork? A quality provider will handle any paperwork associated with Medicare, saving patients time and effort with these confusing forms. The University of Florida has another football player in trouble, something that has seemingly grown into an epidemic. This time it was linebacker Antonio Morrison. And why was he in the news? He was accused of barking at a police dog. No, you didnt read that wrong. He was barking at a police dog. And now hes in the doghouse, sort of, with the Gator football program. Over the weekend a deputy was investigating a disturbance near a hotel and club on Southwest 13th Street in Gainesville. The time on the Alachua County Sheriffs report was 3:43 a.m. You know, the time when most decent Americans, other than those who have to work overnight, are home asleep. Morrison walked up to the police car and started barking at the dog, which, of course, barked back (Morrison says the dog barked first that was his excuse). He was told to wait, refused to cooperate and was arrested because he interfered with the deputy who was trying to investigate his original call. However, the state attorneys office called the charges inappropriate. Charges or not, it was still 4 oclock in the morning. A few weeks ago, Morrison, a 19year-old sophomore from Bolingbrook, Illinois, was accused of battery for allegedly punching a bouncer at a nightclub, who refused to allow him in at a discount rate. After this weekends incident, hes was facing a two-game suspension. There was no word on Wednesday whether that would be changed after the charges were dropped. Two games? Gee, dont be too rough on the guy. That means hell miss games against Toledo and Miami. While the Hurricanes game could be considered a big one, its not an SEC contest. Morrison could be back for the league opener against Tennessee. But there are other questions that have to be raised. Why is a football player out at nearly 4 in the morning. Dont coaches have curfews any more? And dont tell me its because its summer. If hes here, and not in Illinois, that means hes probably taking advantage of his scholarship, and should be subject to some rules. What about the fact that hes 19 years old and was involved in a fight with a bouncer at a nightclub. Should we pass a state law that you have to be 21 to even enter one of these establishments, much less be served a drink? Undoubtedly, other colleges have the same problems with their athletes. But Florida is supposedly an elite football program, and the standards should equal that standing in the community. It makes you wonder if theres a leadership problem at the university that, one of these days, is going to blow up in somebodys face. Why do players behave this way? The cynic among us might answer, Because they can. But its much more than that. Players are given celebrity status in the community, and they feel that deserves special treatment. And why do they feel entitled to that? Well, we all have to take the blame. Every time you buy a Gator hat, pay for a Gator license plate, or even sit down on Saturday afternoon and watch the game, you are making those players feel like they are the most important players in the world. Wed like to see the players kept at home in the wee hours, behaving more like adults than little children. The only good thing to come out of this is Gator fans now know they have someone who can bark back at that University of Georgia mascot, you know, the bulldog, when they take the field in Jacksonville.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Were not sure who sets the County Commission agenda or how they do it, but last weeks zoning part of the agenda had two flaws, one major and the other inconvenient. First was the next-to-last zoning item. Heres how it was labeled: SU Summur LLC, special use permit in A-1, 160 acres. That was it. Now ask yourself, what was this special use zoning issue about. You would never know it without going into the backup material, but this was a permit to allow construction of a new high school in Marion Oaks, adjacent to the southern boundary of SummerGlen. Granted, if you read the backup material, it gives you all the particulars about the case, but you had to click the backup PDF, and you had a choice of two, to get to the meat of the subject. If the subject line on the agenda had said, after the acres, to construct a high school in Marion Oaks near SummerGlen, it would have been instant information for the public that wants to know what is going on in the county. The public records law was not violated in this case. But the duty of the county to keep the residents properly informed surely was. Citizens shouldnt have to wade through all the legalese of backup material to find out one simple thing what is this land to be used for? The second problem, to us, concerned where this item and the following item, the rezoning of 55-plus acres in southwest Marion County were placed. The rezoning had already been heard a couple of times, the developer was told to come back with a plan, he had held a last-minute meeting with the residents of the area who turned out in force for this meeting. This item, though, was last on the zoning agenda. The people who were there, and there were many, had to sit through a discussion of more than an hour on the new high school, which isnt even going to be built for at least 10 years. And please dont tell us that items are put on the agenda in order of being received. This rezoning was continued from a hearing in May. So to those county officials who put items on the agenda, please use some common sense when setting up the next meeting. Give a little consideration to the constituents who have to sit there and listen to all this stuff. Just because you might have to be there for the whole thing, doesnt mean they should be forced to listen. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Consider citizens as agenda is created UF player barking up the wrong tree Unaware and at risk: Diabetics need details READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor PLEASESEEDIABETICS, PAGE9 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Marion Oaks waterfallIf you did not witness the ribbon cutting, the anticipation to see and hear the water flowing over the waterfall, the shouts of joy and ring of applause at the first sight of water, you lost a magnificent opportunity to be part of the rebirth of Marion Oaks. The first sight and sounds of the peaceful waters was like the baptism of a new child to be cherished throughout life. We, the homeowners of Marion Oaks, stood with pride to know that this historic landmark was rescued from being bulldozed by the developer. Our homeowners believed in the future of our community enough to invest in our waterfall, and you can be sure it will be the major attraction in the county, perhaps the state, for many, many years. Marion Oaks marches upward and onward, touched by the caring hands of our Maker! A big thank you to our generous taxpayers. Mildred Musho Marion Oaks BY GLENN MOLLETTE Special to the CitizenI was eating lunch with a high school friend recently at an Atlanta airport restaurant. He has worked in customs for eight years. He noted, Everyone working in this restaurant is from someplace else. We were intrigued and started asking those in the busy restaurant their country of origin. Everyone we asked, and there were several, had moved to the United States within the last six years. Many people could never imagine America changing as much as we have. Freedom allows for change, diversity, new ideas and people with completely different backgrounds. Freedom doesnt mean that we have to believe what others believe but it does mean we have to respect the liberty of those who believe it. America is rapidly changing in her appearance. The white race is becoming the minority. African Americans, Hispanics and Latinos will eventually number in the majority. While Christians are still in the majority fewer and fewer people go to church. Christianity is on the verge of being drowned out by other religious movements because they see America as their mission field. Hindu, Islam, Buddhism and any religion that has funds to survive in America are permeating our nation. They are changing the landscape of what once was mostly comprised of Catholics and Protestants. In the center of our changing country we have to remember one relevant fact. This is still the United States of America. We love our freedom. We love our country. We respect the rights of all our citizens who live and work peacefully in our country to make this their home and a good place. I do not expect every American to look like me, talk like me, think like me or act like me. How boring would it be if we were all the same? We are all different. As other nations flood our country the change is only going to accelerate. Ive had the joyous privilege of working with many different people from different countries. I have wonderful friends who are black, white, rich and poor. They are from throughout the United States, and around the world. I would be sad to think that my life relationships would be limited to just a certain cultural group or segment of our population. America will continue to grow more beautiful and stronger as people come legally and we embrace those who love our country and its opportunities. Those who come to our country must come legally and abide by the same laws every citizen abides by. As we work together we can continue to be the best place in the world.

In this book, Bowman tells the story of Jim Bob Wilson, a simple family man and a sports column journalist. He and his family lives in Tangerine County, but being a native of Sandy Beach, he longs to return to his roots. After closing a deal of buying in a simple home in Sandy Beach, he convinces the company he works for to move him from sports column to community column so he can go back to Sandy Beach. Before long, Jim is writing front-page columns about the lives of those around him. Life seems almost perfect. But will this seemingly perfect life for Jim and his family last, or will they soon themselves in a different scenario of life? Bowmans Lifes a (Sandy) Beach, but Watch Out for the Crabs! walks readers to the life of a family, with love, happiness, passion, mystery, and excitement. Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore.

But continue to do so at an unhurried pace so you can spot details you might otherwise miss. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Taking on that new project could be one of your smarter career moves. Expect a surprising show of support from someone who had always been a critic. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might feel youre too busy to undertake a new responsibility. But check it out before making decisions. What you learn could persuade you to change your mind. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You feel quite content enjoying all the comforts of home right now. But the urge to travel grows stronger, and by weeks end, you could begin packing your bags. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A hectic period begins to ease up, but that doesnt mean the Fine Feline can do much catnapping these days. You need to finish those old tasks and prepare for new ones. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Expect to get some good news about your financial situation by weeks end. But it could still be too early to rush out with a long shopping list of things to buy. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your management skills make an impression on some workplace VIPs who might be looking for someone like you to take on an upcoming project. Good luck. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Meeting a former adversary might be unsettling at first. But time has softened hard feelings, and you could be on the brink of starting a new relationship. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A troubling situation close to home might cause you to change your travel plans. But getting all the facts before you act might cause you to reconsider. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might be quite alone right now in deciding to support a major workplace shift. But others will join you as new information supports your bold move. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A former coworker returns with news that could persuade you to reassess recently made plans. Be sure to consult with a trusted colleague before you act. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your motives behind a recent decision could be called into question by a rival. But once you present the facts, all doubts will be resolved. Enjoy an arts-rich weekend. BORN THIS WEEK: While you love being the center of attention, your generous heart allows you to share the attention with others. BY JEFF BRYAN Riverland NewsDorothy once quipped, while clicking her Ruby Red Slippers three times, theres no place like home. For many who play golf at the end of the Rainbow, the nine-hole municipal course is home. Their second home also got a major boost of recognition, earning the distinction of being the third best nine-hole course in the state by Golf Digest. I think its wonderful, said Don DeLaney, who owns and manages the course with his wife, Linda. I dont know how they determined the criteria or how we were selected, but it is great recognition. But for those who regularly swing their sticks at the regulation-sized, par 36 course, they already knew Rainbows End was a special oasis and many know the two key reasons for it: Don and Linda DeLaney. The DeLaneys took ownership of the course approximately four years ago, dedicating their time to not only improving the facilities and course, but also making it a welcoming, family friendly environment for players. When I come here, its like coming home, said Scott Law, who holds the course record with a 5-under 31. Theres no other way to describe it. Its like being at home. Law, who has played at Rainbows End for the past nine years, said under Don and Linda, the course and facilities have shown great improvement. In addition to the renovations, Law said, the DeLaneys have made it a priority to make everyone feel welcome, by hosting special events such as the Twilight Points League from spring through fall and the night golf tournaments during the summer months. Theyre wonderful, Law said. Don and Linda have done so much to make improvements to the course, but I think what most people come here for is the atmosphere and environment. Its a great course, and Don has really done a great job of taking care of it and making it better. Don and Linda are a great team, and I might get in trouble for saying this, but Linda is the best cook in Dunnellon. Here meals are outstanding. I think what makes Rainbows End so special is them, and they deserve the recognition they received and I hope it pays off for them. Ken Derleth, another local resident who plays regularly at the course for the past three years, agreed with Law. Its an enjoyable course, where you can have fun and relax and not feel pressured, he explained. And there are a lot of good people who come out here and its close to home. Its like home. Added Jack LeBarron: Thats exactly what it is. Everyone is a part of a family out here, and Don and Linda get a lot of credit for that. Everyone seems to know each other and youll see people of all ages out here playing together. Their one complaint? Sometimes the beer is too warm, they joked. Thats certainly another dimension regular players and visitors alike can hear: joking and laughter, between everyone, including the owners. We give Don a hard time, and he gives us a hard time too, said Randy McCoin, who plays in the Tuesday night Twilight Points Game as often as possible. But I think its part of what makes everyone feel so welcome. In addition to that, McCoin said, the DeLaneys make it a point to get to know their customer base. They know everyone by their first name, he said. Thats one thing that left an impression on me. My brother, Joe, used to come out and play here a lot with me. He hasnt been able to because he got married, but Don always asks about him. He always asks, Hows Joe? Hows married life treating him? And Linda, shes the same way. I remember being in the clubhouse and Linda was in the back and I was talking to Don and some others, and she bellows from the kitchen, Is that Randy? For her to know peoples voice, thats amazing. For Don DeLaney, what his customers say about the course as well as he and his wife, thats recognition enough. Will Golf Digests ranking mean additional customers? I dont know for sure, and yes, we hope it does, he explained. But knowing how much those who come here enjoy it that means a lot. And the DeLaneys pride themselves on providing a family atmosphere. Were not a big, private country club with all sorts of amenities, he said. So what else do we have to offer? We can offer folks the chance to come out, play golf and have fun and feel like they are always welcome.

Meetings are held in the St. George Anglican Cathedral Parish Hall, 5646 S.E. 28th St., Ocala. Visitors are always welcome. Check our website at http://ocalamug.org for additional information.Thursday, Sept. 5 CERT training announcedA 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. For more information and for an application, contact Bob Conn, Trainer, at 352-812-0853.

One or two hours can be a blessing to our patients and families receiving hospice care. Sitting with patients, while caregivers run errands, or go to Dr. appts. can be so rewarding and fulfilling. If you are interested in becoming an Odyssey Hospice, Bedside Blessing Volunteer, please contact, Laura Roweton @ 352-622-9331 or lroweton@odsyhealth.com Friendship Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. Newsletter July 2013 submitted by Linda McFarland The Friendship Volunteer Fire Department Inc (FVFD) began in the early 1980s as an all volunteer station. The area continued to grow and local citizens wanted to ensure safety for all concerned and in 1990 a charter was obtained from Tallahassee incorporating the station and a Marion County career fire/rescue crew was assigned with the volunteers. In late s the FVFD rearranged its command structure and currently has positions for Captain, Lieutenant, and Board members consisting of President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and three Directors. Over the years, FVFD continued to grow with equipment and responsibilities. Personnel, along with a station address change, has occurred which brings us to today. There are eight volunteers qualified to answer calls when not working their regular jobs. Volunteers continue to work and train to maintain all Florida and Marion county standards and requirements. The calls reported for year 2013 (Jan thru Jun) are structure fires 28, grass fires 43, vehicle fires 04, vehicle crashes 83, rehab 06, alarms 17, illegal burns 03, citizen assist 03. Recently two volunteers completed a call in Grass 521 when another call sounded regarding an accident on I-75. They responded and had the fire danger under control before any other equipment or firefighters could arrive and received praise for a job well done by the responding career Captain. FVFD owns the 521Grass truck which is to be re-fitted with equipment box to prevent injuries while in use. Marion County Fire Rescue Hdqts (MCFR) has been asked for permission to provide a shelter area for this truck to prevent further environmental damage when outside. MCFR has recently acquired vehicles, one being a Quint (ladder truck) which is now to be placed at Station 21/FVFD along with a full career firefighter personnel change. Plans are also in place to remove some vehicles that mostly volunteers respond with to the scene such as the tanker and rehab vehicle. As of this writing FVFD volunteers have not received official notification of all proposed changes except those presented to the July SR 200 Coalition meeting. Due to budget cuts on peoples mind now, which could eventually affect paid personnel, believe it is imperative that FVFD be able to remain viable. We will endeavor to keep you informed of any changes as we receive them. FVFD wishes to thank the community for your response to the fund drive. Thanks also to Oak Run community for letting us participate in the July 4th parade. Our monthly meetings are open to the public and minutes are always posted at the station. WE WILL SPEAK WITH ANYONE WISHING TO JOIN OUR VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTING TEAM. Call (352) 8971427 and your call will be returned with qualifying information. As some posters say, WE NEED YOU!!! Also need a volunteer for Board Treasurer. Current one keeps excellent books and records and position will not be difficult to assume. Friendship Volunteer Fire Department newsletter Donations sought for vet homeStaff members from the Gentiva Home Health and Hospice offices here will be blanketing the county throughout August, distributing food collection bags and gathering donations for the Ocala Ritz Veterans Village and Marion County School Backpack Program as part of the companys 8th Annual Food Drive. As part of the Gentiva Health Services family of home health and hospice providers, employees at the Gentiva Home Health and Hospice Ocala offices and their fellow employees around the country are placing the food collection bags at various healthcare facilities in their respective communities and will collect their harvest during the entire month of August. They are focused on beating last years national record, when the companys 8th Annual Food Drive yielded more than 396,360 pounds of goods for donation to charitable organizations across the country. As active members of the community, we know that food banks, pantries and other charitable organizations continue to face increasing demands due to our troubling economy, said Cathy LaPaugh, Gentiva Hospices Ocala Executive Director. We look forward to working with many area health organizations, and we encourage local healthcare providers to contact us for more information on how they and their employees can participate in this community effort. Gentiva Home Health provides skilled nursing, physical and occupational therapies and related services to residents of Marion County and surrounding Citrus, Lake, and Alachua Counties.

He said that some people were not happy with the stock performances, and that the CEO of the company is leaving. Thats created a lot of buzz. He commented that the issue is not new. He said that a couple of people saw the opportunity for financial gain by making the complaint that the hospital told staff to admit patients rather than keeping them for observation, so that more insurance payments could kick in. Purves said that because HMA is a private company, their board meetings and paperwork would not be subject to Floridas Government in the Sunshine and public records laws.

Greene also pointed out that The State Road 200 Corridor and Station 21 response area will gain two crew members per shift as well as the new engine. The swap of personnel came to light at the recent State Road 200 Coalition meeting when volunteer Dave Heller told members about the upcoming change and spoke of an email he had received from Richard Maxwell, chief of operations. In the memo, obtained by the Citizenvia a public records request to the county and also provided by a volunteer, Maxwell said: Admin is still aiming to make the move of the station at the end of this month. Currently were making sure all the logistical items are in place to do so. Additionally, it is with high probability that Tanker 21 and Air Trailer 21 will be relocated to other stations. In regards to when, we do not have a set date for either of them. Station 21 will operate at the same level as far as 2 rescues and a first response ALS Quint, instead of an engine. As soon as I get firm dates I will get them to you thanks. One group that is upset with the change is the volunteer organization at Station 21, which is extensive. The volunteers respond to calls, have raised funds for equipment at the station, and help provide cool drinks, etc. to firefighters who have to be on a scene for a long time. Heller, officer in charge of the volunteers, told the Coalition there would be no room for volunteers when the move is made. He indicated that the change would come by July 30, but Greene said it would happen before the end of the year, but was endeavoring to get more information on a date. However, Greene added that they would not displace Friendship Station 21 volunteers. She said the Class A Engine, used by volunteers but provided by MCFR, would remain at Station 21. She added, The brush truck, for which Friendship Station 21 volunteers raised funds, will remain at Station 21. In a July newsletter to the volunteers, Linda McFarland, board president, wrote: MCFR has recently acquired vehicles, one being a Quint (ladder truck) which is now to be placed at Station 21/FVFD along with a full career firefighter personnel change. Plans are also in place to remove some vehicles that mostly volunteers respond with to the scene such as the tanker and rehab vehicle. As of this writing FVFD volunteers have not received official notification of all proposed changes except those presented to the July SR 200 Coalition meeting. Due to budget cuts on peoples mind now, which could eventually affect paid personnel, believe it is imperative that FVFD be able to remain viable. We will endeavor to keep you informed of any changes as we receive them. The complete text of the newsletter can be found on Page 27. The volunteers werent the only ones who hadnt received official notification. Two county commissioners and the county administrator, who attended the dedication of the Marion Oaks waterfall Tuesday, each said they had not been notified about the upcoming move.

FIRECONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Read the classifieds SCHOOLCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The school would be built in to 15 years, according to discussion at the meeting. The possible front entrance to the school, according to talks at the meeting, would be on Marion Oaks Manor, the street that runs east and west behind SummerGlen. The road is paved only to the entrance of the development, then turns into a dirt road. From the east, the same road is Southeast 165th Street, which extends westward from 20th Avenue Road and the Interstate for about half a mile as a paved road, then turns into the east end of the same dirt road that starts at the end of Marion Oaks Manor. According to discussion, this road would be paved all the way through. Marion Oaks Manor, which starts at County Road 484, is a wide road with plenty of right of way for four lanes, except for one small stretch, until just before it gets to SummerGlen. Something else that would upset the residents in the area is that Manor/165th may become a major eastwest thoroughfare. In the countys 20year plan, there is another overpass/flyover in the future, and it would connect 165th west of I-75 with County Road 42 near Pedro on the east of the highway. When this is completed, the new road would connect County Road 484 directly with points east, going through Marion Oaks and adjacent to SummerGlen, including U.S. 301 and 441 near Summerfield and The Villages. No final decision was made at the meeting, but when Herlihy was asked about other nearby sites, he pointed out deficiencies in each, and said that this was the best site. Sams Club to celebrrateThe newly remodeled Sams Club at 3921 S.W..

E The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: Hurricane Sandy brought more sea water onto shorelines than Id ever witnessed before and many communities near where I live are now being required to raise their homes up. What is the prognosis for sea level rise in the years immediately ahead? -Scott P., Fairfield, CT Since sea level measurements were first recorded, in 1870, global averages have risen almost eight inches. The annual rate of rise has been 0.13 inches over the past 20 years, which is close to twice the average from the previous 80 years. Future estimates for sea levels vary according to region but most Earth scientists agree that sea levels are expected to rise at a greater pace than during the last 50 years. Predicting the amount of rise is an inexact science and depends on many factors including climate change and ice sheet flows. The U.S. National Research Council predicts a possible sea level rise of between 22 and 29 inches over the 21st century in the U.S. Sea levels are anticipated to continue rising for centuries. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), land elevation changes also have a large impact on the effects of rising water levels. Subsidence (sinking) or uplift (rising) of the land can help determine the relative sea level rise. The EPAs relative sea level estimates, assuming a two foot global sea level rise by 2100, are 2.3 feet at New York City, 2.9 feet at Hampton Roads, Virginia, 3.5 feet at Galveston, Texas and one foot at Neah Bay in Washington state. The main factors contributing to sea level rise are thermal expansion (created by an increase in ocean water temperatures) and the melting of ice caps and glaciers. Human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels, combined with natural activities, have contributed to the rise of the earths surface temperature over the past century. According to National Geographic, about 80 percent of this additional heat is absorbed by the oceans. The above factors are well studied, but more research is still being done on how climate change will impact large ice sheets in areas such as Greenland and the Antarctic. An extra foot of sea level rise could be a possibility depending on what happens with these larger ice sheets. Even small changes in sea levels can have adverse effects on coastal areas. Erosion, flooding of wetlands, aquifer and agricultural soil contamination and habitat loss for fish, birds and plants are all problems resulting from rising sea levels. Also, higher sea levels usually mean more destructive weather events as storm surges get bigger and more powerful and devastate everything in their way. Coastal communities will suffer the most, as flooding from rising water levels will force millions of people out of their homes. As for what can be done, reducing our collective carbon footprint is no doubt the first and most important step. Individuals should drive and fly less, walk and bicycle more and take advantage of public transit. But sweeping policy changes will have the most impact: A recent commitment by the Obama White House to require coal-burning power plants and other large industrial operations to minimize greenhouse gas Rise in sea levels likely to continue EARTH TALK PHOTO BY THE BERKESMost Earth scientists agree that future sea levels will rise at a greater pace than during the last 50 years.

LOCAL BY JIM CLARK EditorIn the wake of the defeat last year of a tax that would have kept Munroe Regional Medical Center with local operators, outgoing Hospital CEO Steve Purvis explained the current status of the hospital at a recent State Road 200 Coalition meeting. Munroe is entering into a lease agreement with Health Management Associates, which operates 73 hospitals, including 23 in Florida, according to Purves, who is leaving Munroe for a job in the Phoenix area at the end of August. This is a half billion dollar transaction, Purves told the Coalition at its meeting on July 15. Purves said current employees will be offered a chance to stay on for a year after that it would be up to hospital officials to decide who they will keep. There are a lot of details were working through now. He said the most vulnerable are the senior leadership staff of the hospital.

Get ready to meet some new people. Fire Rescue officials are swapping the personnel from the two stations in a move designed, they say, to have the properly trained personnel with the right equipment. Station 21s volunteers are questioning the move and how it was planned. According to MCFR public information officer Jessica Greene, the county is getting two new trucks with 78-foot ladders. One of these trucks is being assigned to Station 21, which is on 90th Street just off State Road 200, near Lowes. Crew members that have more extensive training, according to Greene, are at Station 20, and thus are being moved to Friendship. As a result, all personnel are being swapped. Station 21 joins with Station 31, which is on County Road 484 west of 200, in covering the crowded corridor, which includes several commercial structures that would need a ladder truck to get to the higher floors. Station 20, which is at 80th Avenue Northwest near U.S. Highway 27, covers that corridor which is mostly residential, rarely higher than two stories. Thats why the ladder truck is a welcome addition to the station and the corridor.32~ Friday, July 26, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Volunteers question fire station swap PHOTO BY JIM CLARKFriendship Station 21 is nestled among the trees on Southwest 90th Street, just off State Road 200. PLEASESEEFIRE, PAGE3 PHOTO BY JIM CLARKThis is the site, across from SummerGlen, where a new high school is being proposed in Marion Oaks. Proposal for Marion Oaks high school worries SummerGlen BY JIM CLARK EditorMARION OAKS Theres a new high school coming to Marion Oaks, according to longrange plans, and residents of nearby SummerGlen are concerned about it. Their fears may be a little premature, however. The school is so far in the future that some of its first students may not have been born yet. The School Board, through one of its employees, David Herlihy, appeared before the County Commission on Tuesday, July 16, requesting a special use permit to build a high school. The land is directly south of the community of SummerGlen, and the northwest corner of the property is across the street from SummerGlens southern entrance. The 160 acres is owned by Summur LLC, and the special use permit is needed because the land is zoned A-1, agriculture. Thats how it was listed on the agenda, so unless people consulted the backup material, there was no way to tell it was about a school in Marion Oaks. PLEASESEESCHOOL, PAGE3 For three days next weekend, Florida law directs that no sales tax or local option tax (also known as discretionary sales surtax) will be collected on sales of clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for $75 or less per item, on certain school supplies selling for $15 or less per item, and on personal computers and certain related accessories selling for $750 or less per item, when purchased for noncommercial home or personal use. This three-day tax holiday is in effect from 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 2, through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 4. The exemption will apply no matter how many items are sold on the same invoice to a customer. The exemption does not apply to any item of clothing selling for more than $75, to any school supply item selling for more than $15, or to any personal computer or related accessory selling for more than $750. Sales tax holiday is next week PLEASESEETAX PAGE5 PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKMarion Oaks waterfallA ribbon-cutting ceremony took place Tuesday, July 23, at the waterfall at the entrance to Marion Oaks.
