In the inset, Fire Division Chief James Banta speaks to the group at the meeting at the Collins Center in TimberRidge. PLEASESEEFIRE, PAGE3 BY JIM CLARK EditorMembers of the State Road 200 Coalition heard from Marion County Fire Rescue Monday about recent personnel changes, and also got to see a pair of firefighting vehicles up close. Division Chief James Banta told the audience that the personnel switch between Station 21, the Friendship Station located near Lowes just off SR 200, and Station 20, which is just off U.S. Highway 27 on what is basically 80th Avenue extended, was completed on Saturday, Aug. 10. Two new ladder trucks were added to the MCFR fleet, one at Station 21. We chose 21 because of the amount of population growth, Banta said, adding that the hospital and the big box stores were also part of the equation. The reason the crews were switched, he said, was because of the tech rescue personnel that would go with the ladder truck. It only makes sense, being that the crew had additional training, he said, emphasizing that he wasnt slighting the former Station 21 crew. Answering a question from the audience, he said the standard response time is 8 minutes, 59 seconds, and that the standard was achieved percent of the time. He was also asked why two or BY JIM CLARK EditorCounty Commissioners and staff held a town hall meeting on Friday, Aug. 9, at Fire Station 20 near U.S. 27, but there were almost as many officials there as members of the general public. Commissioners each gave a report, starting with Earl Arnett, in whose district the meeting was held. He spoke of road improvements in his area, the two new ladder trucks for Marion County Fire Rescue, one of which was on display, parks and recreation and library activities. Chairman Kathy Bryant spoke of the gains in employment, and added that commissioners have worked very hard on economic development.

three vehicles respond to things such as medical calls, and he emphasized that by doing so the needed resources were sent to the scene. As soon as it is determined that a truck or its personnel were not needed, they are released to go back into service and answer other calls. He said the dispatchers have access to a screen that shows where every truck in the county is, and that the three closest trucks to the site of a call are dispatched. After he spoke, Dave Heller of the Friendship Volunteer Firefighters told the audience that everything seems to be moving along well. Heller read a memo from another chief at last months meeting, and at that time he indicated that personnel didnt know they were being switched or what would happen to the volunteers trucks. Now the grass truck and rehab truck are still with the volunteers. Heller said the volunteers are still actively recruiting members. In the last month four have expressed interest, and two have applied. He said they are also looking for some retired folks who can answer calls during the day when many of the volunteers are working their regular jobs. He said that we respond to everything that is non-medically related. Heller said that the department had a fund drive, which they do once every two years. He cautioned people that neither the volunteers nor MCFR do any telephone soliciting people who get calls seeking money for the fire department should not contribute that way.

Craig, 83, of Oak Run, died July 31, 2013, under the care of her daughter Peggy, in her home, and Hospice of Marion County. She was born in Glen Burnie, Md., July 23, 1930. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ralph C. Craig, earlier this year. She leaves behind two daughters, Peggy Vincent, Oak Run, and Nancy Wilmers, Gypsum Colo.; three grandsons, Nathan, Raymond, Craig and his wife Meagan; granddaughter, Jessie; and two greatgrandsons, Tyler and Ryder. No services are scheduled at this time. OBITUARY FIRECONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 growth rate. She continued along that line, citing the commerce park at U.S. 27 and Interstate 75, and said she was excited to see FedEx plans come to fruition. Bryant spoke about the budget, saying that things have been a little challenging as the county prepares the budget. She spoke of various reductions in personnel and praised the installation of solar panels to produce hot water at the jail. The production of compressed natural gas was a key topic of conversation, who also noted that the county wouldnt ever have to site another landfill in Marion County because of an agreement with Sumter County. Carl Zalak continued discussion of the compressed natural gas, saying he originally wondered if the county could wean ourselves off foreign oil. He spearheaded the plan to create a natural gas station, putting a plan together that received state funding for the project. The county will convert vehicles to the natural gas, and Zalak said the county is working with the School Board to get school buses into the fold. Stan McClain said that he campaigned to find a long term solution to solid waste, and echoed the sentiments of others that the goal had been reached with the Sumter County plan. We were able; to buy into that project from the beginning. David Moore thanked Station 20 for hosting, and said they were maintaining dialogue with the Legislative Delegation, although it was off season and there was no session in progress. Were still talking to state officials. Brian Dotten, commander of the Northwest District for the Marion County Sheriffs Office, warned people about scams that were targeting the elderly. In the portion open to the public, only a few people spoke. Linda Miller asked commissioners to make sure that they would not take part in any Agenda 21 nonsense. Bryant told her, To my knowledge we dont have any of those initiatives. Vern Uhlinger suggested that just a few vehicles at a time be converted to natural gas to make sure it worked as advertised. Sandy Wingerter asked about Silver Springs, and McClain responded, noting that the state takes over on Oct. 1. He said he would be part of an advisory group that would meet in September. Bryant talked about campers having access to the water. Thats a gamechanger, she said.

Friday, August 16, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING 4~ Friday, August 16, 2013 www.smcitizen.com On Monday those big yellow vehicles will again appear on the roads indicating that school has started. Its important for everyone to watch out for school buses stopping and starting, as well as for children crossing roads and streets. Tales being told out of school have already found their way to Pun Alley.Get upOne early morning a lady went in to wake up her son and said, Wake up, son. Its time to go to school! The son replied, But why Mom? I dont want to go. Give me two reasons why you dont want to go. Well, the kids hate me for one, and the teachers hate me, too! Mom said, Thats no reason to not go to school. Come on now and get ready. The son said, Give me two reasons why I should go to school. Well, for one, youre 52 years old. And for another, youre the Principal!Iron manLast year a high school teacher injured his back and had to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. It fit under his shirt and wasnt noticeable. On the first day of the term, still with the cast under his shirt, the teacher found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school. Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, he opened the window as wide as possible and then busied himself with paperwork at his desk. When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up the stapler from his desk and stapled his tie to his chest. After that, he had no discipline problems with any of his students that term.Short subjectsThe nurse went to art school because she wanted to learn how to draw blood. The nursery school teacher was a hero because she stopped a kid napping. Carpenter students go to boarding school. In medical school he worried about passing as a surgeon, but he made the cut. The insect that earned an A in English class was a spelling bee. The music teacher gave each of her students a small piece of paper to see if they could hold a note. I went to school to become a wit, but only got halfway through. One mother to another: I never realized the value of education until the children went back to school. Real vacuumA high school science class was learning about how sound travels. If youre in a vacuum, and someone calls your name, can you hear it? the teacher inquired. One eager boy raised his hand. That depends, he answered. Is it on or off?EarfulA representative from a prestigious music school paid a visit to the home of a potential student, a boy whose parents claimed he was a very gifted pianist. When the boy sat down to play for the scout, he began banging either side of his head on the keys repeatedly. Confused, the scout asked the boys parents if there was something wrong. Oh no, replied his mother, he usually plays by ear.New teacherAfter being interviewed by the school administration, the new teaching prospect said, Let me see if Ive got this right. You want me to go into that room with all those kids, and fill their every waking moment with a love for learning. And Im supposed to modify their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse and even censor their tshirt messages and dress habits. You want me to wage a war on drugs, check their backpacks for weapons of mass destruction, and raise their selfesteem. You want me to teach them patriotism, good citizenship, sportsmanship, fair play, how to register to vote, how to balance a checkbook, and how to apply for a job. I am to maintain a safe environment, recognize signs of anti-social behavior, offer advice, and communicate regularly with the parents by letter, telephone, and report card. All of this I am to do with just a piece of chalk, a computer, a few books, a bulletin board, a big smile and on a starting salary that qualifies my family for food stamps. You want me to do all of this and yet you expect me not to pray? I think teachers need all the prayer we can give them. They have a major part in forging the character and future of our youngsters.

Jason Crabb is a Grammy nominated, 10-time Dove Award winner who is well-known for such Gospel hits like Through the Fire or Please Forgive Me, and Redeemed. Its significant that we will have some of the most powerful voices of leadership speaking and encouraging our community on Labor Day, said Toro Townley, Chief Executive Officer of Townley Engineering and Manufacturing Co., Inc., the sponsor of the celebration. I believe that many people will be refreshed as they hear the good news of the Gospel and see what is happening right here in Marion County.

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.

Friday, August 16, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, August 16, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Impatience with those who dont keep up with you can cause resistance, which, in turn, can lead to more delays. Best to be helpful and supportive if you want results. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A surprise announcement from a colleague could put you on the defensive. Gather your facts and respond. Youll soon find the situation shifting in your favor. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Time spent away from a project pays off with a new awareness of options you hadnt considered before. Weigh them carefully before deciding which to choose. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Consider confronting that personal conflict while theres still time to work things out. A delay can cause more problems. A longtime colleague might offer to mediate. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Some emerging matters could impede the Lions progress in completing an important project. Best advice: Deal with them now, before they can create costly delays. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your aspect continues to favor an expanding vista. This could be a good time to make a career move, and taking an outof-town job could be a good way to do it. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Disruptive family disputes need to be settled so that everyone can move on. Avoid assuming this burden alone, though. Ask for no, demand help with this problem. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Patience is called for as you await word on an important workplace situation. A personal circumstance, however, could benefit by your taking immediate action. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Dont lose confidence in yourself. Those doubters are likely to back off if you demand they show solid proof why they think your ideas wont work. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A temporary setback might cause the usually sure-footed Goat some unsettling moments. But keep going. The path ahead gets easier as you move forward. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Theres welcome news from the workplace. There also could be good news involving a relationship that has long held a special meaning for you. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might still need to cut some lingering ties to a situation that no longer has the appeal it once held. In the meantime, you can start to explore other opportunities. BORN THIS WEEK: Your sense of whats right can inspire others if you remember not to push too hard to make your case. Moderation works best for you. 000FKTL

The Cebert Wealth and Overholser teams continue to battle for first place. Cebert Wealth has moved into first place but showed some signs of weakness, as they lost on Wednesday to the Wise Way team. The Wise way team has begun to show some spunk, winning there last two games against the two top leaders. Our surprise team has been the Stone Creek team, which was expected to be a top contender with their younger and faster players. They just cant seem to muster enough hitting to get those wins, but the season is still young and they may just come out of their slump. We are happy to see that we are beginning to see more players who live in OTOW. If interested in playing, call 352-873-0538 and leave a message if there is no answer.

Giving us a little bit of the history about the award, Bill mentioned that Marion Landing has been recognizing its volunteers since 2001 and has always recognized an individual or couple for their outstanding contribution to the community. This time it was a little different. This time the Volunteer Recognition Award was presented to a trifecta, a group of three ladies who come up with ideas, plan events, and then take the lead role with the other two assisting. They also volunteer on their own for various activities, and Bill introduced them as follows: Our first volunteer has been a resident of our community since December 2001. She is the current secretary of the Sunshine Committee, chair of the annual yard sale, has co-chaired the Four Seasons potluck pupper and 4th of July Party, and organizes afternoon bridge. The first of the three volunteers we are recognizing today is Rhea Rouquie. The next volunteer has been a resident since September 2009. She has organized and chaired three, going on four, craft fairs, chaired a New Years Eve party, co-chaired the 4th of July party and the Four Seasons potluck supper, and assisted with the yard sale. She will be chairing the annual fall sale this year. The next volunteer we are recognizing today is Merry Anne Krell. The third volunteer has been a resident since May 2010. She is a former Finance Committee member, assists with the craft fair, worked the 4th of July party, chaired the Four Seasons potluck supper and last years yard sale. She also manages our Phone Tree and is the voice you hear on most messages. She MCs at Tuesday Socials and various Sunday afternoon entertainment shows, and is an entertainer at our own events as well. The third volunteer we are recognizing today is Paula Adwell. Rhea, Merry Anne and Paulas engraved plaques will join the more than 158 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents nominated for the award by their peers. If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director.Monthly speakerJan Hathaway, United Way literacy coordinator, will be at Marion Landing on Tuesday, Aug. 20, after the Social, to explain to us about ReadingPals, an early learning initiative brought about by the United Ways Womens Leadership Council, Women of Worth (WoW). ReadingPals places volunteers in schools and brings positive reinforcement to a child while enhancing their skills for success. Reading volunteers are needed for the 2013-2014 school year at the kindergarten level. After completing the short training session, the volunteer meets with a student in the school media center for one hour per week (two 30-minute sessions) on designated weeks (for a total of 25 hours over the course of the school year), reading to the student, doing a prescribed activity related to the book and, upon completion, the child will take the book home to build their own personal library. Find out more about this rewarding volunteer opportunity after the Social on Tuesday, Aug. 20.Labor Day partyCelebrate Labor Day at a community party by the pool on Sunday, Sept. 1, from 6 to 9 p.m. Listen and dance to some great music by Cool Breeze and spend an evening socializing with your friends and neighbors. Bring your own beverages and snacks. Tickets are $4 each and are available at the Tuesday Socials and in the Activities Office during regular ticket sale hours.

Friday, August 16, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, August 16, 2013 BY BOB FRANKEN King Features columnistWe live in an inverse universe. Where else but in an upside-down society would private be public and public be private. We now must take for granted that our personal lives can be scrutinized by almost anyone, particularly by the authorities. That was reinforced recently by a federal appeals-court ruling that cellphone-company location records may be searched to determine where an individual has been. The court found that the practice is not prohibited by the Constitutions Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures even without a warrant. Lets not forget the Supreme Court majority decision that a DNA sample may be taken from a person who has been arrested for a serious crime, and put into a registry well before conviction. Of late, our government has been cracking down hard on anyone who dares to make information about sensitive parts of the peoples business available to the, uh, people. Just ask Pfc. Bradley Manning, former Army intelligence analyst. The authorities have lowered the boom on him for releasing to WikiLeaks thousands upon thousands of classified files containing material that officials didnt want released. What we discovered, thanks to Pfc. Manning is that there was much we should have known all along, and we benefited from its disclosure. Meanwhile, his mole mate Edward Snowden is stuck in limbo, desperately trying to stave off a full-scale assault by the United States government to extricate him from Russia and drag him back to the U.S. of A. for similarly harsh revenge. His offense was the same, taking the cloak off of Americas cloak and dagger. In effect, hes charged with spying on the nations intelligence services, specifically the National Security Agency. Of course, our electronic spooks were spying on us and sure didnt want us to know that. But thanks to Mr. Snowden, were now aware that with the acquiescence of a puppet court, the NSA has been routinely collecting the data on the who-what-when of our every communication. For his revelation, Snowden is a man on the run, finally released from his Moscow airport purgatory into whatever hell awaits in Russia. Critics argue that he should have stayed behind to face the music. In what songbook is that written? Why on earth would he want to face a lifetime in prison because he did what was right? Right now, hes on the remnants of a Cold War chess board, a pawn of Vladimir Putin and his merry Moscow band who are taking some delight in giving their American geopolitical playmates what amounts to a noogie. The noogie-ees are accused of responding in typical fashion, which is to say dishonestly. At an open hearing, Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy cast doubt on claims by the espionage folks that these sweeps had put a serious dent in terrorism. It was, Leahy insisted, really barely a scratch. Meanwhile Director of National Intelligence James Clapper actually released the very same records that Snowden leaked, along with a statement that Clapper has determined that the release of these documents is in the public interest. If so, why should the one who disclosed them in the first place be a fugitive? Newtown, Connecticut, is a place that will remain in the minds of millions of people for a very, very long time. The New England community was rocked by a school shooting last December, with 20 children and five staff members being killed by Adam Lanza, who then killed himself. As with many school shootings, this one faded into the background quickly. However, the names Newtown and Sandy Hook Elementary are now synonymous with names such as Columbine, Paducah, etc. Living here in Ocala, you dont think that anything would happen that would bring people from Newtown to our community less than a year later. However, this week, a group of 10-year-old baseball players from Newtown, the New England Regional Champions of Cal Ripken Baseball, are in Ocala for the World Series being played at the Rotary complex off Maricamp Road. The Hilton is the tournament headquarters, and on Saturday morning we found the Newtown players headed out for practice. There were decorated vehicles in the parking lot, and the groups of young players from Newtown and other teams laughing and enjoying themselves. They were here for baseball, and obviously, the past is the past for those sweltering in the August sun for a baseball tournament. How often have we heard the term, Kids are resilient. Never was it more in evidence than around these players from Newtown, who proudly marched on to the field for the opening ceremonies Saturday afternoon. There was no mention of the recent history of their community and, indeed, there seemed to be a concerted effort not to have last Decembers news be part of the tournament. Things didnt go well for Newtown on Saturday. Their starting pitcher gave up a home run (thats right, a Kentucky 10-year-old smashed it over the fence) and then that same pitcher was drilled in the lower leg by a line drive and eventually had to leave the game. They lost 18-4, and then suffered their second loss Monday, 12-3, to West Raleigh, North Carolina. But at the opening ceremonies, you could just sense everyone watching this team, and, deep down, you knew that a lot of people were pulling for them, at least if their own team couldnt win it. There was more to the opening ceremonies, of course, with the presentation of participation plaques by various local dignitaries to each team, the ceremonial first pitch, etc. There was also the grand entrance by three skydivers who accurately landed in center field. There was time to talk to some of the coaches who were waiting for the skydivers. The group from Meridian, Idaho, near Boise, said they had temperatures in the low 90s, but no humidity like this. Maybe when people say Its not the heat, its the humidity, they know what theyre talking about. When it was all over, the teams that were scheduled to play headed for areas to get ready, while some of the players on teams that werent scheduled until Sunday were heard to be asking, Are we done? After standing out in the afternoon sun, visions of a swimming pool danced in their heads. That applied to a number the adults there, too.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Once again those big yellow buses are ready to travel the highways and byways of Marion County, taking children to and from school. Classes for public school students begin on Monday, Aug. 19. Some private schools have already started. Therefore, its time to review some of the most misunderstood traffic rules on the books in Florida. 1. If you are going in the same direction as a school bus, no matter how many lanes the road has, you must stop if the arm is extended and the red lights are on. It is prudent to not pass the bus when the yellow lights come on as the bus slows down, because they could change to red at any moment, and if theyre red and youre passing, watch out for the blue lights. 2. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a two-lane road, and the arm is extended and the red lights come on, you must stop. No exceptions. 3. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a four-lane road, well, heres where it gets tricky. If the four-lane road has a median more than five feet wide, or a barrier to prevent normal crossing of foot traffic, you do not have to stop. It must, however, be a median (around here most are grass and/or plants). 4. However, if the four-lane road has no median or barrier, you must stop if you are going into the opposite direction. Around here, we have a number of fivelane roads, roads which have a turn lane in the middle. Those paved turn lanes are not medians, and you must stop. We see violations all the time on such streets as 27th Avenue West, 14th Street Northeast and roads like that. There are even small portions of U.S. 27 that have no divider or median, just a turn lane. Of course, the rules have to work both ways. Nothing is more annoying than to be coming in the opposite direction of a school bus, whose yellow warning lights are flashing. You slow down to stop, but the bus just keeps on cruising and stops somewhere behind you, leaving you out to dry as other drivers, who didnt slow down, speed around you. Its also annoying when a bus stops, takes on children, then just sits there while the driver talks to a parent who is standing on the sidewalk. So please, know the law and keep the children who are using the school buses safe. But we urge the drivers to keep other people in mind. Drivers can save themselves some courtroom time and money in the process of knowing and abeying the law.. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Friday, August 16, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, August 16, 2013 www.smcitizen.com vatives balked at the Senate Appropriations Committees inclusion of about $5.6 billion in spending more than current levels under the sequester. The $54 billion bill would be $2.3 billion more than the fiscal 2013 enacted level and $2.4 billion more than the Obama administrations request. Much of the additional spending in the Senate bill comes from in the form of roads funding. The Senate bill would provide $550 million for infrastructure project funds, known as TIGER grants, an increase of $51 million from the presequester fiscal 2013 level. House appropriators provided no funds for the program. The bill also would create an account that would provide $500 million for repairing structurally deficient or functionally obsolete bridges and crucial highway corridors.Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson voted YES Republican Sen. Marco Rubio voted NOSamantha Power Nomination to be Representative of the United States of America to the United Nations Vote Confirmed (87-10, 3 Not Voting) In the final vote before August recess, the Senate confirmed the nomination of Samantha Power as U.S. Representative to the United Nations and the UN Security Council.Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson voted YES Republican Sen. Marco Rubio voted NORecent House VotesStudent Loan Interest Rates Passage Vote Passed (392-31, 10 Not Voting) On July 31, the House voted to concur with Senate amendments to a bill that permanently sets federal student loan interest rates. The measure, approved 392-31, culminated weeks of negotiation to reach a bipartisan deal after interest rates doubled for many loans on July 1. The bill annually would link the rates charged on new student loans to the rate paid in June on 10year Treasury notes. The terms would apply to all new federal student loans, except for low-interest Perkins loans made to needy students. The premium charged in addition to the 10-year base rate would include 2.05 percentage points for subsidized and unsubsidized portions of undergraduate loans, 3.6 points for graduate loans, and 4.6 points for PLUS loans made to graduate students and parents of undergraduates. Rates would be capped at 8.25 percent, 9.5 percent and 10.5 percent, respectively, for the three classes of loans. The market-based rate system is similar to a plan proposed by the White House in its fiscal 2014 budget, and President Obama is expected to sign it.Republican Rep. Rich Nugent voted YESIranian Sanctions Passage Vote Passed (400-20, 1 Present, 13 Not Voting) House lawmakers voted 400-20 on July 31 to pass a bill aimed at reducing Irans oil exports and further isolating its economy. The bill would compel countries currently purchasing crude oil from Iran to reduce their combined purchases by a total of 1 million barrels per day within a year. Failure to comply would prompt a loss in those nations ability to obtain significant reduction sanction exemptions that let them continue to purchase Iranian oil. It also would expand the list of Iranian industries effectively blacklisted, further limit Irans access to overseas foreign currency reserves and impose additional shipping sanctions to limit Irans ability to engage in international commerce. Earlier in the week, Democratic and Republican sponsors of the bill brushed off pressure to delay the vote, saying that passage would send an important signal to Irans incoming president about the cost of continuing to advance a nuclear program.Republican Rep. Rich Nugent voted YESAffordable Care Act Implementation Passage Vote Passed (232185, 16 Not Voting) On August 2, the House passed a bill designed to block the Treasury Department from enforcing key components of the 2010 Affordable Care Act. The vote, the last before members left for August recess, represented the 40th time the House has passed measures to repeal or dismantle the health care reform law. Four Democrats voted for the measure, which was supported by all Republicans. The bill prohibits the Secretary of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service from enforcing penalties the 2010 law would levy on those who do not purchase health insurance when the law goes into full effect in 2014. The vote culminated what House leaders dubbed Stop Government Abuse Week.Republican Rep.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Right to lifeSoon after the jury entered its verdict in the Trayvon Martin murder case in Florida, the NAACP asked the Dept. of Justice to charge Zimmerman with federal crimes to vindicate the most fundamental of civil rights the right to life.

I looked forward to this very much because I grew up in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, which has many Amish/Mennonite communities. I was expecting quite a bit as I packed my bags to leave. Are you sure you got everything? A phrase reiterated to me by the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. To which I responded by saying, Yes, for the umpteenth time I got everything. This in and of itself was to guarantee me I would forget something, usually essential in my travel. Then when I get home, I will be reminded that I was reminded to make sure I got everything. Nothing, at this point, could deter my high-level expectation of going into an Amish/Mennonite community. My great eagerness was looking forward to indulging in one of my favorite desserts: the shoofly pie. Nobody makes shoofly pie quite like those wonderful Amish people. To make matters even more enticing, I would not have anybody sitting next to me reminding me I had enough shoofly pie. I fully intended to gorge myself on as much shoofly pie as my wallet could handle. In my book, there is no such thing as too much shoofly pie. I drove 15 hours to get to this little town in Ohio. Every mile creating anticipation for my dessert delicacy awaiting me in some Amish restaurant. I confess it has been a long time since I visited an Amish/Mennonite community. Even though I grew up in such a community some things a person tends to forget. The convention I was attending ended Sunday morning at lunch. I, being the grandiose Know-It-All, decided to skip the Sunday lunch and look for a restaurant to indulge in my delectable delicacy. The convention was wonderful and as I left the grounds, I did so with a lot of joy in each step. The thing I forgot was it was Sunday in an Amish/Mennonite community. If you have never been in such a community, let me inform you that on Sunday the only thing open are churches. I had forgotten this little tidbit. During the week, I made a list of several Amish restaurants. I had plans of visiting each of them before I left and having shoofly pie, a whole pie, in each restaurant. When I got to the first restaurant, it finally hit me. This was Sunday and everything in an Amish/Mennonite community was closed. I do not usually go to a restaurant on Sunday unless it is some special occasion. I was a little chagrined to realize everything was closed. This only heightened my anticipation of the shoofly pie delicacy awaiting me come tomorrow. At times it feels like tomorrow will never come, but eventually tomorrow came and I awoke with a song on my lips, a pang of hunger in my stomach and a desire to indulge in a shoofly delicacy. I finally arrived at my first Amish restaurant and I was drooling so much I could hardly tell the hostess I was just a party of one. Boy, what a party it was going to be. Being a gentleman, I contained myself as best I could and ordered a very scrumptious repast. Nobody can cook like those Amish women. Oh, what a lunch I had. I think what made it so wonderful was the dessert expectation hovering over me like an angelic halo. Just as I was finishing my lunch the lovely young waitress, all dressed in Amish attire, came by inquiring if I would like to see the dessert menu. No, I said with a delectable determination, I know exactly what I want for dessert. We exchanged smiles. I have no idea what she was smiling about; maybe the anticipatory tip. I knew what I was smiling about; the anticipatory dessert. I tried to contain myself and carefully pace out my instructions. Young lady, I said as calmly as possible, I will have a piece of shoofly pie. In fact, why dont you bring me the whole pie. And with that, I smiled. The waitress looked at me rather strangely and said, What kind of pie do you want? Being the kind of person that enjoys a good old-fashioned joke, I responded, Ha ha ha. A shoofly pie, if you please. Whats a shoofly pie? I can take a joke as well as anybody but there comes a time when all jokes need to be put aside and bring on the This Amish restaurant didnt know about Amish dessert Out to Pastor Rev.

right to life as the basis of their petition. NAACP withholds the right to life of every unborn child that is aborted in America with their unwavering support of abortion. They demand equal access to abortion, participate in pro-abortion rallies, and oppose every attempt to restrict abortion even in minor restrictions. They opposed a bill in Congress to ban abortion based on the race of the baby. Blacks, about 12 percent of our population, account for nearly 40 percent of abortions performed each year. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, often pointed to AfricanAmericans as examples of an unfit race and to the poor as human weeds whose procreation should be limited. Her efforts were supported by the Ku Klux Klan, an organization where she was often the featured speaker. Abortion and racism have long found common cause, and before Roe v. Wade, abortion was advertised as a means of getting rid of certain classes of people, certain races, and a means of eliminating unwanted female births. The 2011 Arizona law which prohibits abortionists from knowingly performing an abortion sought or coerced because of the preborn childs gender or race was opposed by the NAACP and they filed suit claiming that a law that prohibited the intentional killing of a preborn child because of the childs race or gender is itself racist. To describe Trayvon Martins tragic death in terms of his having been denied his right to life, while at the same time denying the right to life of the unborn, is oxymoronic in the extreme. They fail to see how preposterous it is to hold two such stubbornly opposed positions.

This is an Amish restaurant, isnt it? Yes it is, she smiled patiently. Youve heard of a shoofly pie, havent you? No, Ive never heard of such a pie. I cannot tell you the depth of disappointment this brought to me. For weeks, I have been looking forward to some good old-fashioned shoofly pie. As it turned out, only the Amish/Mennonite in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, know anything about shoofly pies. Not all Amish are the same even though they look alike. The apostle Paul understood this kind of disappointment. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable (1 Corinthians 15:19 KJV). I have had many disappointments in life and many people have disappointed me, but I have found in Jesus Christ no disappointment whatsoever. All legitimate hope is in Jesus.Rev. James L.

His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com. PASTORCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 (For Carol: A doggone good friend)You can always tell a lot about a people by their sayings. Our American culture is so peppered with expressions and borrowed slang from the many cultures that have thrived on our shores that it is sometimes hard to get back to the source and capture the true essence of the expression or saying. As Americans, we love to put our own stamp on our words, combining endings and foreign sounding syllables to English words. So we have coined el cheapo (a bargain) fashionista (a stylish lady) fancy, schmancy (so what if it is really over done!), the first two have SpanishLatino origins, the latter, Yiddish. Speaking of Yiddish, there are many expressions and sayings worthy of note. As we will see, they reflect the character, aspirations, frustrations and religion of the Jewish people. They are true folk sayings and maybe not sanctioned by the rabbis or written in the Torah but certainly hold meaning and inspiration. Many are borrowed from the cultures and societies where Jews have lived for centuries, others are purely Jewish and reflect Jewish values and ethics. In times of persecution and discrimination, being assertive and creative were ways to survive in a hostile society. So we have these wisdoms to impart: Nerve succeeds!And, If you want to, you can move the whole world. And this little gem about the power of women: If your grandmother had a beard, shed be your grandfather!Jewish parents are noted for their deJewish wisdom and sayings votion to their children. It is Jewish tradition to see the customs and culture of the Jewish people passed on to the next generation. The following sayings seem to support these principles: Small children dont let you sleep, big children dont let you rest. And be careful what you say in your homes: The talk of a child in the street is the talk of his father and mother at home. And we have this truism for the maturing that mothers do: One mother achieves more than hundred teachers. Also, Its hard to raise sons, much harder to raise daughters. As for growing up and taking responsibilities, we have: If youre still a child at twenty, youre an ass at twentyone.And having children at all, poses problems: Small children, a headache, big children, heartache. And in a role reversal, we have this gem: Parents used to teach their children to talk; now children teach their parents to keep quiet.As for the value of education, one Jews prize highly, I offer: One who teaches a child is as if he has created him.In general, Jews tend to be pretty optimistic about life. This too shall passis a common expression with the hope of a brighter day dawning soon. When it comes to dealing with life and getting along with others, these little wisdoms come to light: Not all you know, may you say; For the disease of stubbornness, no cure exists; Experience is what we call the accumulation of our mistakes andEasy to promise, hard to fulfill.As for knowing when to keep quiet and listen, I just love these two little gems: God gives us two ears and one mouth so that we may hear more and talk less and He who is aware of his folly is wise. Then there is A wise man hears one word and understands two. If we could only keep these ideas in mind when dealing with situations, how much easier our lives would be! Next time you are looking for a good phrase or expression to make your point, you might want to pool from my little showcase list. Keep in mind: One is greeted according to ones garb, bidden farewell according to ones wisdom.And remember the best saying of all:The heart is small but embraces the whole world. Judis Journal Judi Siegal bration of the birth of Arthur Guinness, founder of Guinness brewery in Ireland and its quickly becoming an international holiday. On Sept. 27 from 5:30 until 9 the Social Committee is sponsoring the first Arthur Day celebration at Cherrywood. At 5:59 p.m. the evening celebration begins with a special toast. Then, the Spirit of Ocala Irish Step Dancers will entertain. This amazing dance troupe has entertained and delighted audiences in many venues. We are fortunate to have them booked for this special gathering. Richard OBecotte will supply the music for the party after the dancers have completed their show so there will be no lack of entertainment. To add a little more humor and mirth to the party; there will be a costume judging to award prizes to those who come clad in traditional attire. The cost for all this fun and gayety is just $2 per person and a pot luck snack. Get your ticket and plan on bringing a little something to pass around. While youre bringing something to nibble on, dont for get your beverage. Preferably a Guinness but anything youd like is fine. This is going to be a limited seating event so get your tickets as soon as your can from Geri in the office. Irish or not, this is going to be a great time.From your reporterSummer months are supposed to be less hectic and a time of relaxation for most folks but as you can see from all that is going on in Cherrywood; that is hardly the case for our residents. As Labor Day quickly approaches, I have to clean up some loose ends for my readers who have asked questions and made comments over the past couple of months. I never ignore anyone who sends me an email and with the busy time of year beginning, its better I catch up now. In response to my comments about the new subdivision being proposed; one reader asked for the name of the county commissioner who voted against the new development that will abut Cherrywood. That commissioner was Mr. Moore; all the rest voted in favor. This reader indicated that next election day this would be worthwhile information to have. Mary Johnson expressed her deep appreciation for Cherrywoods participation in the Back to School Bash held at Marion Oaks. I would thank Mary for her hard work for this worthwhile cause. In answer to a request from a reader regarding supplying a speaker from the Ritz House for Veterans; I was able to put both the reader and the proper people together and from my reports, it was a very successful program. Again this summer, my readers have not let me down. Whether it was a request for food for the Ritz House or school supplies for needy children; special visits to suffering residents or volunteering for our many various projects; you have always come through with flying colors. To all of you who have contacted me; I thank you. Many have sent kind words of encouragement and support; a few have been neither of those things but even the so called hate mail has been civil and constructive. Thank you all for taking the time and thought to contact me. Please feel free to email me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

right to life as the basis of their petition. NAACP withholds the right to life of every unborn child that is aborted in America with their unwavering support of abortion. They demand equal access to abortion, participate in pro-abortion rallies, and oppose every attempt to restrict abortion even in minor restrictions. They opposed a bill in Congress to ban abortion based on the race of the baby. Blacks, about 12 percent of our population, account for nearly 40 percent of abortions performed each year. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, often pointed to AfricanAmericans as examples of an unfit race and to the poor as human weeds whose procreation should be limited. Her efforts were supported by the Ku Klux Klan, an organization where she was often the featured speaker. Abortion and racism have long found common cause, and before Roe v. Wade, abortion was advertised as a means of getting rid of certain classes of people, certain races, and a means of eliminating unwanted female births. The 2011 Arizona law which prohibits abortionists from knowingly performing an abortion sought or coerced because of the preborn childs gender or race was opposed by the NAACP and they filed suit claiming that a law that prohibited the intentional killing of a preborn child because of the childs race or gender is itself racist. To describe Trayvon Martins tragic death in terms of his having been denied his right to life, while at the same time denying the right to life of the unborn, is oxymoronic in the extreme. They fail to see how preposterous it is to hold two such stubbornly opposed positions.

This is an Amish restaurant, isnt it? Yes it is, she smiled patiently. Youve heard of a shoofly pie, havent you? No, Ive never heard of such a pie. I cannot tell you the depth of disappointment this brought to me. For weeks, I have been looking forward to some good old-fashioned shoofly pie. As it turned out, only the Amish/Mennonite in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, know anything about shoofly pies. Not all Amish are the same even though they look alike. The apostle Paul understood this kind of disappointment. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable (1 Corinthians 15:19 KJV). I have had many disappointments in life and many people have disappointed me, but I have found in Jesus Christ no disappointment whatsoever. All legitimate hope is in Jesus.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att.net. His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com. PASTORCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 (For Carol: A doggone good friend)You can always tell a lot about a people by their sayings. Our American culture is so peppered with expressions and borrowed slang from the many cultures that have thrived on our shores that it is sometimes hard to get back to the source and capture the true essence of the expression or saying. As Americans, we love to put our own stamp on our words, combining endings and foreign sounding syllables to English words. So we have coined el cheapo (a bargain) fashionista (a stylish lady) fancy, schmancy (so what if it is really over done!), the first two have SpanishLatino origins, the latter, Yiddish. Speaking of Yiddish, there are many expressions and sayings worthy of note. As we will see, they reflect the character, aspirations, frustrations and religion of the Jewish people. They are true folk sayings and maybe not sanctioned by the rabbis or written in the Torah but certainly hold meaning and inspiration. Many are borrowed from the cultures and societies where Jews have lived for centuries, others are purely Jewish and reflect Jewish values and ethics. In times of persecution and discrimination, being assertive and creative were ways to survive in a hostile society. So we have these wisdoms to impart: Nerve succeeds!And, If you want to, you can move the whole world. And this little gem about the power of women: If your grandmother had a beard, shed be your grandfather!Jewish parents are noted for their deJewish wisdom and sayings votion to their children. It is Jewish tradition to see the customs and culture of the Jewish people passed on to the next generation. The following sayings seem to support these principles: Small children dont let you sleep, big children dont let you rest. And be careful what you say in your homes: The talk of a child in the street is the talk of his father and mother at home. And we have this truism for the maturing that mothers do: One mother achieves more than hundred teachers. Also, Its hard to raise sons, much harder to raise daughters. As for growing up and taking responsibilities, we have: If youre still a child at twenty, youre an ass at twentyone.And having children at all, poses problems: Small children, a headache, big children, heartache. And in a role reversal, we have this gem: Parents used to teach their children to talk; now children teach their parents to keep quiet.As for the value of education, one Jews prize highly, I offer: One who teaches a child is as if he has created him.In general, Jews tend to be pretty optimistic about life. This too shall passis a common expression with the hope of a brighter day dawning soon. When it comes to dealing with life and getting along with others, these little wisdoms come to light: Not all you know, may you say; For the disease of stubbornness, no cure exists; Experience is what we call the accumulation of our mistakes andEasy to promise, hard to fulfill.As for knowing when to keep quiet and listen, I just love these two little gems: God gives us two ears and one mouth so that we may hear more and talk less and He who is aware of his folly is wise. Then there is A wise man hears one word and understands two. If we could only keep these ideas in mind when dealing with situations, how much easier our lives would be! Next time you are looking for a good phrase or expression to make your point, you might want to pool from my little showcase list. Keep in mind: One is greeted according to ones garb, bidden farewell according to ones wisdom.And remember the best saying of all:The heart is small but embraces the whole world. Judis Journal Judi Siegal bration of the birth of Arthur Guinness, founder of Guinness brewery in Ireland and its quickly becoming an international holiday. On Sept. 27 from 5:30 until 9 the Social Committee is sponsoring the first Arthur Day celebration at Cherrywood. At 5:59 p.m. the evening celebration begins with a special toast. Then, the Spirit of Ocala Irish Step Dancers will entertain. This amazing dance troupe has entertained and delighted audiences in many venues. We are fortunate to have them booked for this special gathering. Richard OBecotte will supply the music for the party after the dancers have completed their show so there will be no lack of entertainment. To add a little more humor and mirth to the party; there will be a costume judging to award prizes to those who come clad in traditional attire. The cost for all this fun and gayety is just $2 per person and a pot luck snack. Get your ticket and plan on bringing a little something to pass around. While youre bringing something to nibble on, dont for get your beverage. Preferably a Guinness but anything youd like is fine. This is going to be a limited seating event so get your tickets as soon as your can from Geri in the office. Irish or not, this is going to be a great time.From your reporterSummer months are supposed to be less hectic and a time of relaxation for most folks but as you can see from all that is going on in Cherrywood; that is hardly the case for our residents. As Labor Day quickly approaches, I have to clean up some loose ends for my readers who have asked questions and made comments over the past couple of months. I never ignore anyone who sends me an email and with the busy time of year beginning, its better I catch up now. In response to my comments about the new subdivision being proposed; one reader asked for the name of the county commissioner who voted against the new development that will abut Cherrywood. That commissioner was Mr. Moore; all the rest voted in favor. This reader indicated that next election day this would be worthwhile information to have. Mary Johnson expressed her deep appreciation for Cherrywoods participation in the Back to School Bash held at Marion Oaks. I would thank Mary for her hard work for this worthwhile cause. In answer to a request from a reader regarding supplying a speaker from the Ritz House for Veterans; I was able to put both the reader and the proper people together and from my reports, it was a very successful program. Again this summer, my readers have not let me down. Whether it was a request for food for the Ritz House or school supplies for needy children; special visits to suffering residents or volunteering for our many various projects; you have always come through with flying colors. To all of you who have contacted me; I thank you. Many have sent kind words of encouragement and support; a few have been neither of those things but even the so called hate mail has been civil and constructive. Thank you all for taking the time and thought to contact me. Please feel free to email me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

I looked forward to this very much because I grew up in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, which has many Amish/Mennonite communities. I was expecting quite a bit as I packed my bags to leave. Are you sure you got everything? A phrase reiterated to me by the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. To which I responded by saying, Yes, for the umpteenth time I got everything. This in and of itself was to guarantee me I would forget something, usually essential in my travel. Then when I get home, I will be reminded that I was reminded to make sure I got everything. Nothing, at this point, could deter my high-level expectation of going into an Amish/Mennonite community. My great eagerness was looking forward to indulging in one of my favorite desserts: the shoofly pie. Nobody makes shoofly pie quite like those wonderful Amish people. To make matters even more enticing, I would not have anybody sitting next to me reminding me I had enough shoofly pie. I fully intended to gorge myself on as much shoofly pie as my wallet could handle. In my book, there is no such thing as too much shoofly pie. I drove 15 hours to get to this little town in Ohio. Every mile creating anticipation for my dessert delicacy awaiting me in some Amish restaurant. I confess it has been a long time since I visited an Amish/Mennonite community. Even though I grew up in such a community some things a person tends to forget. The convention I was attending ended Sunday morning at lunch. I, being the grandiose Know-It-All, decided to skip the Sunday lunch and look for a restaurant to indulge in my delectable delicacy. The convention was wonderful and as I left the grounds, I did so with a lot of joy in each step. The thing I forgot was it was Sunday in an Amish/Mennonite community. If you have never been in such a community, let me inform you that on Sunday the only thing open are churches. I had forgotten this little tidbit. During the week, I made a list of several Amish restaurants. I had plans of visiting each of them before I left and having shoofly pie, a whole pie, in each restaurant. When I got to the first restaurant, it finally hit me. This was Sunday and everything in an Amish/Mennonite community was closed. I do not usually go to a restaurant on Sunday unless it is some special occasion. I was a little chagrined to realize everything was closed. This only heightened my anticipation of the shoofly pie delicacy awaiting me come tomorrow. At times it feels like tomorrow will never come, but eventually tomorrow came and I awoke with a song on my lips, a pang of hunger in my stomach and a desire to indulge in a shoofly delicacy. I finally arrived at my first Amish restaurant and I was drooling so much I could hardly tell the hostess I was just a party of one. Boy, what a party it was going to be. Being a gentleman, I contained myself as best I could and ordered a very scrumptious repast. Nobody can cook like those Amish women. Oh, what a lunch I had. I think what made it so wonderful was the dessert expectation hovering over me like an angelic halo. Just as I was finishing my lunch the lovely young waitress, all dressed in Amish attire, came by inquiring if I would like to see the dessert menu. No, I said with a delectable determination, I know exactly what I want for dessert. We exchanged smiles. I have no idea what she was smiling about; maybe the anticipatory tip. I knew what I was smiling about; the anticipatory dessert. I tried to contain myself and carefully pace out my instructions. Young lady, I said as calmly as possible, I will have a piece of shoofly pie. In fact, why dont you bring me the whole pie. And with that, I smiled. The waitress looked at me rather strangely and said, What kind of pie do you want? Being the kind of person that enjoys a good old-fashioned joke, I responded, Ha ha ha. A shoofly pie, if you please. Whats a shoofly pie? I can take a joke as well as anybody but there comes a time when all jokes need to be put aside and bring on the This Amish restaurant didnt know about Amish dessert Out to Pastor Rev.

Friday, August 16, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, August 16, 2013 www.smcitizen.com vatives balked at the Senate Appropriations Committees inclusion of about $5.6 billion in spending more than current levels under the sequester. The $54 billion bill would be $2.3 billion more than the fiscal 2013 enacted level and $2.4 billion more than the Obama administrations request. Much of the additional spending in the Senate bill comes from in the form of roads funding. The Senate bill would provide $550 million for infrastructure project funds, known as TIGER grants, an increase of $51 million from the presequester fiscal 2013 level. House appropriators provided no funds for the program. The bill also would create an account that would provide $500 million for repairing structurally deficient or functionally obsolete bridges and crucial highway corridors.Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson voted YES Republican Sen. Marco Rubio voted NOSamantha Power Nomination to be Representative of the United States of America to the United Nations Vote Confirmed (87-10, 3 Not Voting) In the final vote before August recess, the Senate confirmed the nomination of Samantha Power as U.S. Representative to the United Nations and the UN Security Council.Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson voted YES Republican Sen. Marco Rubio voted NORecent House VotesStudent Loan Interest Rates Passage Vote Passed (392-31, 10 Not Voting) On July 31, the House voted to concur with Senate amendments to a bill that permanently sets federal student loan interest rates. The measure, approved 392-31, culminated weeks of negotiation to reach a bipartisan deal after interest rates doubled for many loans on July 1. The bill annually would link the rates charged on new student loans to the rate paid in June on 10year Treasury notes. The terms would apply to all new federal student loans, except for low-interest Perkins loans made to needy students. The premium charged in addition to the 10-year base rate would include 2.05 percentage points for subsidized and unsubsidized portions of undergraduate loans, 3.6 points for graduate loans, and 4.6 points for PLUS loans made to graduate students and parents of undergraduates. Rates would be capped at 8.25 percent, 9.5 percent and 10.5 percent, respectively, for the three classes of loans. The market-based rate system is similar to a plan proposed by the White House in its fiscal 2014 budget, and President Obama is expected to sign it.Republican Rep. Rich Nugent voted YESIranian Sanctions Passage Vote Passed (400-20, 1 Present, 13 Not Voting) House lawmakers voted 400-20 on July 31 to pass a bill aimed at reducing Irans oil exports and further isolating its economy. The bill would compel countries currently purchasing crude oil from Iran to reduce their combined purchases by a total of 1 million barrels per day within a year. Failure to comply would prompt a loss in those nations ability to obtain significant reduction sanction exemptions that let them continue to purchase Iranian oil. It also would expand the list of Iranian industries effectively blacklisted, further limit Irans access to overseas foreign currency reserves and impose additional shipping sanctions to limit Irans ability to engage in international commerce. Earlier in the week, Democratic and Republican sponsors of the bill brushed off pressure to delay the vote, saying that passage would send an important signal to Irans incoming president about the cost of continuing to advance a nuclear program.Republican Rep. Rich Nugent voted YESAffordable Care Act Implementation Passage Vote Passed (232185, 16 Not Voting) On August 2, the House passed a bill designed to block the Treasury Department from enforcing key components of the 2010 Affordable Care Act. The vote, the last before members left for August recess, represented the 40th time the House has passed measures to repeal or dismantle the health care reform law. Four Democrats voted for the measure, which was supported by all Republicans. The bill prohibits the Secretary of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service from enforcing penalties the 2010 law would levy on those who do not purchase health insurance when the law goes into full effect in 2014. The vote culminated what House leaders dubbed Stop Government Abuse Week.Republican Rep.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Right to lifeSoon after the jury entered its verdict in the Trayvon Martin murder case in Florida, the NAACP asked the Dept. of Justice to charge Zimmerman with federal crimes to vindicate the most fundamental of civil rights the right to life.

Without it, the right to free speech, free exercise of religion, racial equality, or any other civil right is a meaningless abstraction.

Friday, August 16, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, August 16, 2013 BY BOB FRANKEN King Features columnistWe live in an inverse universe. Where else but in an upside-down society would private be public and public be private. We now must take for granted that our personal lives can be scrutinized by almost anyone, particularly by the authorities. That was reinforced recently by a federal appeals-court ruling that cellphone-company location records may be searched to determine where an individual has been. The court found that the practice is not prohibited by the Constitutions Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures even without a warrant. Lets not forget the Supreme Court majority decision that a DNA sample may be taken from a person who has been arrested for a serious crime, and put into a registry well before conviction. Of late, our government has been cracking down hard on anyone who dares to make information about sensitive parts of the peoples business available to the, uh, people. Just ask Pfc. Bradley Manning, former Army intelligence analyst. The authorities have lowered the boom on him for releasing to WikiLeaks thousands upon thousands of classified files containing material that officials didnt want released. What we discovered, thanks to Pfc. Manning is that there was much we should have known all along, and we benefited from its disclosure. Meanwhile, his mole mate Edward Snowden is stuck in limbo, desperately trying to stave off a full-scale assault by the United States government to extricate him from Russia and drag him back to the U.S. of A. for similarly harsh revenge. His offense was the same, taking the cloak off of Americas cloak and dagger. In effect, hes charged with spying on the nations intelligence services, specifically the National Security Agency. Of course, our electronic spooks were spying on us and sure didnt want us to know that. But thanks to Mr. Snowden, were now aware that with the acquiescence of a puppet court, the NSA has been routinely collecting the data on the who-what-when of our every communication. For his revelation, Snowden is a man on the run, finally released from his Moscow airport purgatory into whatever hell awaits in Russia. Critics argue that he should have stayed behind to face the music. In what songbook is that written? Why on earth would he want to face a lifetime in prison because he did what was right? Right now, hes on the remnants of a Cold War chess board, a pawn of Vladimir Putin and his merry Moscow band who are taking some delight in giving their American geopolitical playmates what amounts to a noogie. The noogie-ees are accused of responding in typical fashion, which is to say dishonestly. At an open hearing, Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy cast doubt on claims by the espionage folks that these sweeps had put a serious dent in terrorism. It was, Leahy insisted, really barely a scratch. Meanwhile Director of National Intelligence James Clapper actually released the very same records that Snowden leaked, along with a statement that Clapper has determined that the release of these documents is in the public interest. If so, why should the one who disclosed them in the first place be a fugitive? Newtown, Connecticut, is a place that will remain in the minds of millions of people for a very, very long time. The New England community was rocked by a school shooting last December, with 20 children and five staff members being killed by Adam Lanza, who then killed himself. As with many school shootings, this one faded into the background quickly. However, the names Newtown and Sandy Hook Elementary are now synonymous with names such as Columbine, Paducah, etc. Living here in Ocala, you dont think that anything would happen that would bring people from Newtown to our community less than a year later. However, this week, a group of 10-year-old baseball players from Newtown, the New England Regional Champions of Cal Ripken Baseball, are in Ocala for the World Series being played at the Rotary complex off Maricamp Road. The Hilton is the tournament headquarters, and on Saturday morning we found the Newtown players headed out for practice. There were decorated vehicles in the parking lot, and the groups of young players from Newtown and other teams laughing and enjoying themselves. They were here for baseball, and obviously, the past is the past for those sweltering in the August sun for a baseball tournament. How often have we heard the term, Kids are resilient. Never was it more in evidence than around these players from Newtown, who proudly marched on to the field for the opening ceremonies Saturday afternoon. There was no mention of the recent history of their community and, indeed, there seemed to be a concerted effort not to have last Decembers news be part of the tournament. Things didnt go well for Newtown on Saturday. Their starting pitcher gave up a home run (thats right, a Kentucky 10-year-old smashed it over the fence) and then that same pitcher was drilled in the lower leg by a line drive and eventually had to leave the game. They lost 18-4, and then suffered their second loss Monday, 12-3, to West Raleigh, North Carolina. But at the opening ceremonies, you could just sense everyone watching this team, and, deep down, you knew that a lot of people were pulling for them, at least if their own team couldnt win it. There was more to the opening ceremonies, of course, with the presentation of participation plaques by various local dignitaries to each team, the ceremonial first pitch, etc. There was also the grand entrance by three skydivers who accurately landed in center field. There was time to talk to some of the coaches who were waiting for the skydivers. The group from Meridian, Idaho, near Boise, said they had temperatures in the low 90s, but no humidity like this. Maybe when people say Its not the heat, its the humidity, they know what theyre talking about. When it was all over, the teams that were scheduled to play headed for areas to get ready, while some of the players on teams that werent scheduled until Sunday were heard to be asking, Are we done? After standing out in the afternoon sun, visions of a swimming pool danced in their heads. That applied to a number the adults there, too.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Once again those big yellow buses are ready to travel the highways and byways of Marion County, taking children to and from school. Classes for public school students begin on Monday, Aug. 19. Some private schools have already started. Therefore, its time to review some of the most misunderstood traffic rules on the books in Florida. 1. If you are going in the same direction as a school bus, no matter how many lanes the road has, you must stop if the arm is extended and the red lights are on. It is prudent to not pass the bus when the yellow lights come on as the bus slows down, because they could change to red at any moment, and if theyre red and youre passing, watch out for the blue lights. 2. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a two-lane road, and the arm is extended and the red lights come on, you must stop. No exceptions. 3. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a four-lane road, well, heres where it gets tricky. If the four-lane road has a median more than five feet wide, or a barrier to prevent normal crossing of foot traffic, you do not have to stop. It must, however, be a median (around here most are grass and/or plants). 4. However, if the four-lane road has no median or barrier, you must stop if you are going into the opposite direction. Around here, we have a number of fivelane roads, roads which have a turn lane in the middle. Those paved turn lanes are not medians, and you must stop. We see violations all the time on such streets as 27th Avenue West, 14th Street Northeast and roads like that. There are even small portions of U.S. 27 that have no divider or median, just a turn lane. Of course, the rules have to work both ways. Nothing is more annoying than to be coming in the opposite direction of a school bus, whose yellow warning lights are flashing. You slow down to stop, but the bus just keeps on cruising and stops somewhere behind you, leaving you out to dry as other drivers, who didnt slow down, speed around you. Its also annoying when a bus stops, takes on children, then just sits there while the driver talks to a parent who is standing on the sidewalk. So please, know the law and keep the children who are using the school buses safe. But we urge the drivers to keep other people in mind. Drivers can save themselves some courtroom time and money in the process of knowing and abeying the law.. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

The Cebert Wealth and Overholser teams continue to battle for first place. Cebert Wealth has moved into first place but showed some signs of weakness, as they lost on Wednesday to the Wise Way team. The Wise way team has begun to show some spunk, winning there last two games against the two top leaders. Our surprise team has been the Stone Creek team, which was expected to be a top contender with their younger and faster players. They just cant seem to muster enough hitting to get those wins, but the season is still young and they may just come out of their slump. We are happy to see that we are beginning to see more players who live in OTOW. If interested in playing, call 352-873-0538 and leave a message if there is no answer.

Giving us a little bit of the history about the award, Bill mentioned that Marion Landing has been recognizing its volunteers since 2001 and has always recognized an individual or couple for their outstanding contribution to the community. This time it was a little different. This time the Volunteer Recognition Award was presented to a trifecta, a group of three ladies who come up with ideas, plan events, and then take the lead role with the other two assisting. They also volunteer on their own for various activities, and Bill introduced them as follows: Our first volunteer has been a resident of our community since December 2001. She is the current secretary of the Sunshine Committee, chair of the annual yard sale, has co-chaired the Four Seasons potluck pupper and 4th of July Party, and organizes afternoon bridge. The first of the three volunteers we are recognizing today is Rhea Rouquie. The next volunteer has been a resident since September 2009. She has organized and chaired three, going on four, craft fairs, chaired a New Years Eve party, co-chaired the 4th of July party and the Four Seasons potluck supper, and assisted with the yard sale. She will be chairing the annual fall sale this year. The next volunteer we are recognizing today is Merry Anne Krell. The third volunteer has been a resident since May 2010. She is a former Finance Committee member, assists with the craft fair, worked the 4th of July party, chaired the Four Seasons potluck supper and last years yard sale. She also manages our Phone Tree and is the voice you hear on most messages. She MCs at Tuesday Socials and various Sunday afternoon entertainment shows, and is an entertainer at our own events as well. The third volunteer we are recognizing today is Paula Adwell. Rhea, Merry Anne and Paulas engraved plaques will join the more than 158 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents nominated for the award by their peers. If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director.Monthly speakerJan Hathaway, United Way literacy coordinator, will be at Marion Landing on Tuesday, Aug. 20, after the Social, to explain to us about ReadingPals, an early learning initiative brought about by the United Ways Womens Leadership Council, Women of Worth (WoW). ReadingPals places volunteers in schools and brings positive reinforcement to a child while enhancing their skills for success. Reading volunteers are needed for the 2013-2014 school year at the kindergarten level. After completing the short training session, the volunteer meets with a student in the school media center for one hour per week (two 30-minute sessions) on designated weeks (for a total of 25 hours over the course of the school year), reading to the student, doing a prescribed activity related to the book and, upon completion, the child will take the book home to build their own personal library. Find out more about this rewarding volunteer opportunity after the Social on Tuesday, Aug. 20.Labor Day partyCelebrate Labor Day at a community party by the pool on Sunday, Sept. 1, from 6 to 9 p.m. Listen and dance to some great music by Cool Breeze and spend an evening socializing with your friends and neighbors.

Friday, August 16, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, August 16, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Impatience with those who dont keep up with you can cause resistance, which, in turn, can lead to more delays. Best to be helpful and supportive if you want results. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A surprise announcement from a colleague could put you on the defensive. Gather your facts and respond. Youll soon find the situation shifting in your favor. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Time spent away from a project pays off with a new awareness of options you hadnt considered before. Weigh them carefully before deciding which to choose. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Consider confronting that personal conflict while theres still time to work things out. A delay can cause more problems. A longtime colleague might offer to mediate. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Some emerging matters could impede the Lions progress in completing an important project. Best advice: Deal with them now, before they can create costly delays. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your aspect continues to favor an expanding vista. This could be a good time to make a career move, and taking an outof-town job could be a good way to do it. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Disruptive family disputes need to be settled so that everyone can move on. Avoid assuming this burden alone, though. Ask for no, demand help with this problem. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Patience is called for as you await word on an important workplace situation. A personal circumstance, however, could benefit by your taking immediate action. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Dont lose confidence in yourself. Those doubters are likely to back off if you demand they show solid proof why they think your ideas wont work. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A temporary setback might cause the usually sure-footed Goat some unsettling moments. But keep going. The path ahead gets easier as you move forward. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Theres welcome news from the workplace. There also could be good news involving a relationship that has long held a special meaning for you. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might still need to cut some lingering ties to a situation that no longer has the appeal it once held. In the meantime, you can start to explore other opportunities.

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.

Friday, August 16, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING 4~ Friday, August 16, 2013 www.smcitizen.com On Monday those big yellow vehicles will again appear on the roads indicating that school has started. Its important for everyone to watch out for school buses stopping and starting, as well as for children crossing roads and streets. Tales being told out of school have already found their way to Pun Alley.Get upOne early morning a lady went in to wake up her son and said, Wake up, son. Its time to go to school! The son replied, But why Mom? I dont want to go. Give me two reasons why you dont want to go. Well, the kids hate me for one, and the teachers hate me, too! Mom said, Thats no reason to not go to school. Come on now and get ready. The son said, Give me two reasons why I should go to school. Well, for one, youre 52 years old. And for another, youre the Principal!Iron manLast year a high school teacher injured his back and had to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. It fit under his shirt and wasnt noticeable. On the first day of the term, still with the cast under his shirt, the teacher found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school. Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, he opened the window as wide as possible and then busied himself with paperwork at his desk. When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up the stapler from his desk and stapled his tie to his chest. After that, he had no discipline problems with any of his students that term.Short subjectsThe nurse went to art school because she wanted to learn how to draw blood. The nursery school teacher was a hero because she stopped a kid napping. Carpenter students go to boarding school. In medical school he worried about passing as a surgeon, but he made the cut. The insect that earned an A in English class was a spelling bee. The music teacher gave each of her students a small piece of paper to see if they could hold a note. I went to school to become a wit, but only got halfway through. One mother to another: I never realized the value of education until the children went back to school. Real vacuumA high school science class was learning about how sound travels. If youre in a vacuum, and someone calls your name, can you hear it? the teacher inquired. One eager boy raised his hand. That depends, he answered. Is it on or off?EarfulA representative from a prestigious music school paid a visit to the home of a potential student, a boy whose parents claimed he was a very gifted pianist. When the boy sat down to play for the scout, he began banging either side of his head on the keys repeatedly. Confused, the scout asked the boys parents if there was something wrong. Oh no, replied his mother, he usually plays by ear.New teacherAfter being interviewed by the school administration, the new teaching prospect said, Let me see if Ive got this right. You want me to go into that room with all those kids, and fill their every waking moment with a love for learning. And Im supposed to modify their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse and even censor their tshirt messages and dress habits. You want me to wage a war on drugs, check their backpacks for weapons of mass destruction, and raise their selfesteem. You want me to teach them patriotism, good citizenship, sportsmanship, fair play, how to register to vote, how to balance a checkbook, and how to apply for a job. I am to maintain a safe environment, recognize signs of anti-social behavior, offer advice, and communicate regularly with the parents by letter, telephone, and report card. All of this I am to do with just a piece of chalk, a computer, a few books, a bulletin board, a big smile and on a starting salary that qualifies my family for food stamps. You want me to do all of this and yet you expect me not to pray? I think teachers need all the prayer we can give them. They have a major part in forging the character and future of our youngsters.

three vehicles respond to things such as medical calls, and he emphasized that by doing so the needed resources were sent to the scene. As soon as it is determined that a truck or its personnel were not needed, they are released to go back into service and answer other calls. He said the dispatchers have access to a screen that shows where every truck in the county is, and that the three closest trucks to the site of a call are dispatched. After he spoke, Dave Heller of the Friendship Volunteer Firefighters told the audience that everything seems to be moving along well. Heller read a memo from another chief at last months meeting, and at that time he indicated that personnel didnt know they were being switched or what would happen to the volunteers trucks. Now the grass truck and rehab truck are still with the volunteers. Heller said the volunteers are still actively recruiting members. In the last month four have expressed interest, and two have applied. He said they are also looking for some retired folks who can answer calls during the day when many of the volunteers are working their regular jobs. He said that we respond to everything that is non-medically related. Heller said that the department had a fund drive, which they do once every two years. He cautioned people that neither the volunteers nor MCFR do any telephone soliciting people who get calls seeking money for the fire department should not contribute that way.

Craig, 83, of Oak Run, died July 31, 2013, under the care of her daughter Peggy, in her home, and Hospice of Marion County. She was born in Glen Burnie, Md., July 23, 1930. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ralph C. Craig, earlier this year. She leaves behind two daughters, Peggy Vincent, Oak Run, and Nancy Wilmers, Gypsum Colo.; three grandsons, Nathan, Raymond, Craig and his wife Meagan; granddaughter, Jessie; and two greatgrandsons, Tyler and Ryder. No services are scheduled at this time. OBITUARY FIRECONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 growth rate. She continued along that line, citing the commerce park at U.S. 27 and Interstate 75, and said she was excited to see FedEx plans come to fruition. Bryant spoke about the budget, saying that things have been a little challenging as the county prepares the budget. She spoke of various reductions in personnel and praised the installation of solar panels to produce hot water at the jail. The production of compressed natural gas was a key topic of conversation, who also noted that the county wouldnt ever have to site another landfill in Marion County because of an agreement with Sumter County. Carl Zalak continued discussion of the compressed natural gas, saying he originally wondered if the county could wean ourselves off foreign oil. He spearheaded the plan to create a natural gas station, putting a plan together that received state funding for the project. The county will convert vehicles to the natural gas, and Zalak said the county is working with the School Board to get school buses into the fold. Stan McClain said that he campaigned to find a long term solution to solid waste, and echoed the sentiments of others that the goal had been reached with the Sumter County plan. We were able; to buy into that project from the beginning. David Moore thanked Station 20 for hosting, and said they were maintaining dialogue with the Legislative Delegation, although it was off season and there was no session in progress. Were still talking to state officials. Brian Dotten, commander of the Northwest District for the Marion County Sheriffs Office, warned people about scams that were targeting the elderly. In the portion open to the public, only a few people spoke. Linda Miller asked commissioners to make sure that they would not take part in any Agenda 21 nonsense. Bryant told her, To my knowledge we dont have any of those initiatives. Vern Uhlinger suggested that just a few vehicles at a time be converted to natural gas to make sure it worked as advertised. Sandy Wingerter asked about Silver Springs, and McClain responded, noting that the state takes over on Oct. 1. He said he would be part of an advisory group that would meet in September. Bryant talked about campers having access to the water. Thats a gamechanger, she said.

In the inset, Fire Division Chief James Banta speaks to the group at the meeting at the Collins Center in TimberRidge. PLEASESEEFIRE, PAGE3 BY JIM CLARK EditorMembers of the State Road 200 Coalition heard from Marion County Fire Rescue Monday about recent personnel changes, and also got to see a pair of firefighting vehicles up close. Division Chief James Banta told the audience that the personnel switch between Station 21, the Friendship Station located near Lowes just off SR 200, and Station 20, which is just off U.S. Highway 27 on what is basically 80th Avenue extended, was completed on Saturday, Aug. 10. Two new ladder trucks were added to the MCFR fleet, one at Station 21. We chose 21 because of the amount of population growth, Banta said, adding that the hospital and the big box stores were also part of the equation. The reason the crews were switched, he said, was because of the tech rescue personnel that would go with the ladder truck. It only makes sense, being that the crew had additional training, he said, emphasizing that he wasnt slighting the former Station 21 crew. Answering a question from the audience, he said the standard response time is 8 minutes, 59 seconds, and that the standard was achieved percent of the time. He was also asked why two or BY JIM CLARK EditorCounty Commissioners and staff held a town hall meeting on Friday, Aug. 9, at Fire Station 20 near U.S. 27, but there were almost as many officials there as members of the general public. Commissioners each gave a report, starting with Earl Arnett, in whose district the meeting was held. He spoke of road improvements in his area, the two new ladder trucks for Marion County Fire Rescue, one of which was on display, parks and recreation and library activities. Chairman Kathy Bryant spoke of the gains in employment, and added that commissioners have worked very hard on economic development.
