Rich Nugent. Nugent speaks at Brentwood at Fore Ranch BY JIM CLARK EditorU.S. Rep. Rick Nugent, who represents the Corridor area in Congress, paid a visit to Brentwood at Fore Ranch, got a tour of the facility and spoke briefly to some of the residents. The Congressman told the audience he had three sons in the military, and had just gotten back from a visit to one of them in Germany. Asked about debates about health care, he firmly stated, I dont want to see any changes in Medicare and Social Security. He added that to change those programs after people had paid in to all of them would be a crime. He added, There are other ways to balance the budget. Nugent said that people who work all their lives and then turn 65, at least should have some certainty that the dollars pledged to them would be there. Asked about Obamacare, he noted that the employee mandate had been pushed back a year. He commented, The money just isnt there for what they promised. They overpromised and under-delivered. He invited people to call him or visit his Ocala office. U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent speaks at Brentwood on Monday. BY JIM CLARK EditorIf you thought the County Commission vote two weeks ago against the dog-tethering ban finalized things, well, guess again. Commissioners had to listen to the complaints all over again at their meeting, Tuesday, Aug. 20, as speaker after speaker pushed for the ban, and then some commissioners spoke back, leaving no doubt that a 24-hour ban on tethering dogs doesnt have a chance. In fact, Chairman Kathy Bryant at one point vehemently tapped the table with her pen and said, this commissioner will not support a 24-7 ban. Earlier, Bryant said she has a dog, a small one, and said, I take care of my animals, and I dont want government telling me how to do that. That seemed to be the consensus of the board. Stan McClain said that enforcement concerned him, and added, We do have tethering laws on the books. Tell me how this is going to change that. One speaker called the tethering cruel and barbaric, and another spoke of a fatal attack by a tethered dog on a small child in Duval County who wandered into the yard. A member of a program called Project Pup said, in favor of dogs, I would not like to see the world without them. At the end, the commission decided to appoint a task force to examine the issue. The tethering ban was not even on the agenda, but came up because of speakers in the public portion of the meeting. Speakers bounced back and Tethering debate resurfaces PLEASESEEDOGS, PAGE26 Mailed white powder causes scare in countyMarion County Fire Rescue provided mutual aid to Ocala Fire Rescue and cooperated with several local agencies Friday regarding suspicious packages received at the Ocala Police Department, the Marion County Courthouse, the Marion County Jail, the Marion County Superintendent of Schools office and the Ocala Star Banner. No one was treated for exposure and there are no injuries due to these packages. MCFRs Shady Station 16 Hazmat Team responded to a suspicious package call at the Ocala Police Department at 11:09 a.m. The crews used specialized monitors to rule out biological, explosive, chemical and radiological agents and determined the substance to be corn starch through a subsequent test. Shortly after, at 12:07 p.m., MCFR responded to a suspicious package call at the Marion County Courthouse. MCFR firefighters analyzed this package and determined that it contained corn starch as well. The Marion County Public Safety Communications Center received suspicious package reports from the jail, the superintendents office and the Star Banner at 1:08 p.m., 1:14 p.m. and 1:31 p.m. respectively. These packages were not opened and were also analyzed by MCFRs Hazmat crew. The package at the Star Banner revealed trace amounts of radiation. However, this could be caused by several factors and does not pose a health threat to individuals at the Star Banner or the surrounding area; the other packages were negative. All five suspicious packages will be This shows the envelope mailed to the Marion County Jail. PLEASESEEPOWDER, PAGE3 School opening is smooth; attendance figures downThe start of a new school year for nearly 40,000 students in Marion County Public Schools ran smoothly with few exceptions. Normal first-day challenges late buses due to higher-than-expected rider counts, unregistered students, and new residents unfamiliar with school attendance areas took time out of the first instructional day of the 2013-2014 school year. These issues are normally resolved within the first few days of class. Monday, 37,588 students showed up for their first day eager to begin a new year after summer vacation. This number is 1,679 students fewer than last years first-day count and about 10 percent under the projected peak enrollment of 41,878. Stagger-start kindergarten during the first three days will raise the overall attendance figure which will continue climbing over the next two months for the official state count in October. Legacy Elementary, which opened its doors to students for the first time Monday morning, also experienced few issues. With nearly 100 percent (569 of 573 projected) of students showing up, high attendance at PLEASESEESCHOOL, PAGE26 Major burglary in Oak RunThe Marion County Sheriffs Office is investigating a burglary in Oak Run which could amount to thousands of dollars of jewelry being taken. Deputies responded to Southwest 69th Circle to the home at about 6:30 Tuesday evening. The couple living there had left at about 3 p.m. and returned later to find that their home was forcibly entered and property taken. The front door was forced open with damage to the door jamb, according to the report. There was no ransacking and there was a small dog inside. Jewelry was stolen from a desk in a bedroom, and two large plastic bags filled with gold and silver jewelry were taken. Also believed taken was a .357 handgun, which was believed to be in a gun safe under the bed. Deputies processed the scene for fingerprints, and also canvassed the neighborhood. Anyone with information should call the Southwest District Office. 1918 SW 17th St. Ocala 352-401-0808 *SEE SALES PERSON FOR DETAILS. PICTURES FOR ILLUSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY.

Callahan, 67 OcalaEdward J. Callahan, 67, of Ocala, passed away suddenly Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2013. He was born in Buffalo, N.Y., Nov. 22, 1945, son of the late Edward John and Elizabeth Frances (Grimmer) Callahan. Ed attended school in Buffalo, N.Y., and high school in Mesa, Ariz. In 1968 he met the love of his life at a college gathering and Ed married Patricia Eckert in her hometown of LaFargeville, N.Y., Aug. 30, 1969. In 1977 he earned his masters degree in education from State University College of Buffalo, N.Y. While attending college Ed worked summers on freighters in the Great Lakes and also as a travel agent with Niagara Frontier Travel Agency. Once he earned his degrees in the sciences he taught at Lancaster High School, N.Y. Following the Blizzard of 1977 he and Pat moved to Phoenix, Ariz., where for the next five years he taught at the Adobe Mountain School for the Dept. of Corrections as a vocational teacher and also enjoyed renovating and selling real estate properties. Upon returning to Clayton, N.Y., and later LaFargeville, N.Y., in the early 1980s he became the director of the Planetarium and Nature Center at Wiley School, Watertown School District, N.Y.; retiring in 1989. He then became owner and operator of Ramblers Roost Boat and RV Storage, Clayton, N.Y. For many years Ed raised and trained his personal companion samoyed dogs. In 2000 Pat retired and they enjoyed traveling; settling in Ocala in 2006. He loved boating, fishing, woodworking, visiting with friends and quiet mornings reading the newspaper. Ed and Pat enjoyed their daily walks with their dog Snow Prince. Ed is survived by his beloved wife of 44 years, Pat; siblings, Betty Anderson and her husband, John of Maryland and John Jack Callahan of Boone, North Carolina; Pats siblings, Peter Eckert and his wife RoseMary, Chris Eckert and his wife Diane, Ella Wilson and Tim Eckert; numerous nieces; nephews; great-nieces; and greatnephews. Pat will receive her family and friends for a celebration of life service Saturday, Aug. 24, 2013, at 4:30 p.m., with the service beginning at 5 p.m., in the TimberRidge Chapel of Hiers-Baxley Funeral Services, 9695 S.W. 110th St. Ocala, FL 34481. A second celebration of life service will be Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013, at 4:30 p.m., at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 1330 Gotham St. Watertown, NY 13601. Memorial contributions may be given to the Edward J. Callahan Scholarship Fund, LaFargeville Central School, c/o Nicole Parliament, P .O. Box 138, LaFargeville, NY 13656. Condolences may be expressed at www.hiers-baxley.com. OBITUARIES sent to the Florida Department of Health Bureau of Laboratories in Jacksonville for further testing. The suspicious packages that were opened were sealed on the back with a red heart sticker and contained post cards as well as a powdery substance. In response, the county stopped delivery for Friday of internal and incoming mail to the Board of County Commissioners departments and offices in an effort to protect both staff and citizens in county buildings. POWDERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Read the classifieds the schools orientation last week made opening day virtually trouble-free. The $20 million school is already paid for with sales tax dollars collected several years ago. While most students made it to class district-wide without incident, some buses were delayed because of normal first-day procedures including longer-thananticipated pickup times at new bus stops and drivers placing colored armbands on students for proper identification. Transportation issues are a common and expected occurrence during the first two weeks of class. Once drivers become aware of students and students learn their bus route numbers, stop times and locations, these problems dissipate. As of 4:30 p.m. Monday, the districts transportation hotline 352-671-7050 fielded nearly 1,800 calls compared to last years 1,227 on the first day, about a 46 percent increase. This hotline offers immediate help to parents with bus questions and concerns and operates 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each school day. As well, the districts Technology Help Desk answered over 400 calls, up from last years 300 from classroom teachers and other school technology users. Despite public education efforts, school administrators sent 477 seventh graders out of class because they did not have proof of their state-required immunizations 22 percent lower than last years 605. Even with these immunization concerns and transportation issues, the district ran remarkably smooth for a first-day opening. SCHOOLCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 forth between two issues, the other being the lack of public transportation west of Interstate 75. The speakers were primarily from an area called Oak Tree Village, which is on U.S. Highway 27 about a quarter mile west of the Interstate. They bemoaned the fact that they had to walk a long way to get to a bus, including elderly who had to get to doctors appointments. Others, who live off State Road 40, complained that there were no grocery stores in their area, and there was no transportation to get them there. A look at the SunTran map shows the westernmost stop on State Road 40 is at 33rd Avenue, which is east of the Interstate. On U.S. 27 its even further east, located about the 2400 block, east of 27th Avenue. Residents correctly pointed out that buses run out Maricamp Road well into Silver Springs Shores, and out State Road 40 East all the way to Silver Springs and north from there to Northeast 35th Street. Transportation Planning Organizations Greg Slay was in attendance, and Bryant told the people to talk to him about the problem. DOGSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 since Jack and Sherry Ashenfelter had to give up instructing some four years ago. The class meets each Monday from 12:45 to 2:45 in the H&R Ballroom. Bob and Janice introduce line dances they have seen at different dance festivals, dances recommended by friends, and dances based on music they enjoy. If you have knowledge of the basic line dance steps, you are more than welcome to join us for a fun filled session of line dancing. BowlingThe first bowling day of the 2013-2014 year is on Sept. 9. Please arrive by 2 p.m., as we will have our pre-season meeting. The meeting will include the introduction of officers, introduction of new bowlers, review and appreciation of where to hold the April banquet, and a review of financial data and holiday breaks.

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 23, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, August 23, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Back in 1992, Hurricane Andrew attacked southern Florida, and Louisiana from Aug. 22 to 26. Overall, it caused 65 fatalities and $26 billion in damage, and is currently the fourth costliest hurricane in U.S. history, behind only Hurricanes Katrina in 2005, Ike in 2008, and Sandy in 2012. The U.S. has three hurricane warning centers Coral Gables, Guam and Honolulu. All three have faced Category 4 hurricanes in the past. Which only goes to show: If you build it, they will come. Thinking of wind and rain brings us to some Pun Alley stories.Hurricane and himmicanesHurricanes were traditionally named after women because they arrive all windy and wild, and when they leave they take your house and your car. Nowadays, hurricanes are alternately named after men because theyre noisy, make a huge mess, and if you look into their eyes theres nothing there.Survivor benefitsWhen a hurricane blew across the Caribbean, an expensive yacht swamped by high waves sank. The two survivors, the boats owner, Dr. Smith and the steward, Marcus, swam to a deserted island. The steward was very upset that they would never be found. Dr. Smith on the other hand was quite calm, relaxing against a tree. Dr. Smith, how can you be so calm? cried Marcus. Were going to die on this lonely island. Listen to what I have to say, Marcus. began the confident Dr. Smith. Four years ago, I gave the United Way $500,000 and another $500,000 to my church. Three years ago I contributed $750,000 to each. Last year, business was good, so the two charities each got a million dollars. So what? shouted Marcus. Well, its time for their annual fundraising drives, and I know theyre going to find me! smiled Dr. Smith.Oops!Just after a hurricane the regular preacher could not get to his church because the water was too high by his house. A retired minister in the congregation was called upon to speak. He mentioned that the wind had just blown out a window in his house and he had to substitute a piece of cardboard for it and that he too was acting as a substitute. After the service, a woman who had listened intently shook hands with him and wishing to compliment him said, You were no substitute. You were a real pane.DelightedAt UF during one of the hurricanes a Chinese professor was lecturing to the students when all the lights in the auditorium went out. He asked everyone to raise their hands. As soon as they had all complied, the lights went on again. He then said, Prove wisdom of old Chinese saying, Many hands make light work.Raindrops With a hurricane threatening New Orleans, the mayor had denied canceling Mardi Gras, in fact he said, I expect a record number of floats on Main Street this year! First cave man to second cave man: I dont care what you say. We never had such unusual weather before they started using bows and arrows. A man said the only reason why his dwelling was not blown away in a storm was because there was a heavy mortgage on it. In Louisiana a lot of organic debris blown away by a hurricane was washed into the many water channels. Luckily most of this stuff is considered bayou degradable. And now for your extended forecast, Foooorrreeecaaaasssstt.No EscapeThere was a party in the national forest when the hurricane rain hit in a heavy downpour. Two guys ran and ran, finally reaching their car just as the rain let up. They jumped in, started it, and stepped on the gas, laughing and still drinking beer. All of a sudden an old mans face appeared in the window and he tapped on it! The passenger screamed, Look at my window! Theres an old guy there! The old man kept knocking, so the driver stepped harder on the gas. Now going about 80 miles an hour, they calmed down until there was a knock on the window and the old man appeared again. Go faster, the passenger yelled. Now at 100 miles an hour and still guzzling beer, trying to forget what they had seen, there was more knocking! Oh no! The passenger rolled down the window and screamed, What do you want? The old man replied, You want some help getting out of this mud?

Police agencies fight breast cancer Lightning strike damages Ocala homeA lightning strike during an intense thunderstorm caused a residential structure fire Saturday evening. An alert neighbor noticed the fire and called 911. Firefighters with Ocala Fire Rescue responded to 2202 N.E. 38th Terrace at 7:12 p.m. and arrived within minutes to quickly contain the fire to the attic. The homeowner who later arrived to the scene told fire officials he was not at home when the fire began. According to Battalion Chief Shane Alexander, firefighters quickly extinguished the attic fire and covered furniture inside the home with waterproof tarps to protect them from further damage. A building inspector with the city of Ocala who also responded deemed the house uninhabitable until the electrical system is checked and repairs are made. Damage to the $150,000 house is estimated at $8,000. 000FNFZ POWER WASHING Low Pressure Washing. We use Simple Green Soap.

Friday, August 23, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, August 23, 2013 If youre a baseball fan, youre probably aware that major leaguers get to choose the song that blares from the speakers as they trudge to the batters box. What you hear is a genre variety of rap, country and some heavy metal. Some of the tracks are weird; others just loud. It would be appropriate if Alex Rodriguez came on to the chorus of Chance the Rappers Juice. Dont listen to the rest of it, because its offensive. Anyway, it isnt going to happen. This shtick has been featured in the movie Major League which, to some of us, is a silver-screen classic. In it, Charlie Sheen plays a Cleveland Indians pitcher with serious control issues. One of the funniest scenes in this truly sophisticated film is his entrance to The Troggs Wild Thing. What if the players in the contact sport of politics could do the same thing? Thered have to be a few tweaks, of course. Take President Barack Obama. Yes, he does have Hail to the Chief, but isnt that getting a bit tired? Besides, I use that as my wifes ringtone, so its time for POTUS to get something new. Given complaints from his supporters about his lackadaisical leadership style, maybe instead of Wild Thing, he could be preceded by Mild Thing: Mild thing. Progressive hearts sink. Conservatives are pleased with his decision to blow off Russian President Vladimir Putin and skip their little summit in Moscow. What a pity. Their last photo-op went so well. Which brings us to Vlad and his walk-on music: How about Put on a Happy Face? Back home, we all endure our own nonstop psychic torture, courtesy of Congress. The worst abuse comes from the House Republicans, controlled by the unruly tea-party extremists. Most of them got elected by telling fed-up voters in their gerrymandered districts that they didnt know diddly about the federal government, so they would destroy it. Now, here they are, after riding into town like a malicious Clampett family. Instead of the Beverly Hillbillies, their theme could be the Capitol Hillbillies who have loaded up the truck and moved their bubblin crude to Washington D.C., that is. Not that the hometown folks are any bargain. If you havent had a chance to read Mark Leibovichs book This Town, you might want to. He really nails the phonies who inhabit the upper echelons here, the permanent residents who go to the same parties, always looking over each others shoulders as they chat, to make sure theres not someone in the room who is more important. Mark calls it the D.C. scalp stare. He names names. Its brutally funny, and all true. For those of us who stab so many in the back simply to be noticed in the nations capital, the only thing worse than being mentioned in the book is not being mentioned. Without a doubt, in the minds and alleged hearts of the players here, Leibovich deserves one song only: Funeral March. But we, too, have an appropriate anthem, though its a far cry from Marks Chopin. Its from the blues group Fathead: First Class Riff-Raff. Have you ever run across a television program that is so dumb and ridiculous that its actually entertaining? Ive recently found one. Its called Dead Like Me, and reruns are on a cable channel called Chiller on Sunday evenings. Ill try to give you the basic plot, but you may have to go back and read it more than once. The show stars an actress named Ellen Muth, whose credits include a stint on All My Children and a spot on Law and Order, in a show that was rerun this past Sunday morning. In that one she was a teen who helped a couple of guys kill a delivery boy, just because they wanted to know what it felt like. Get the picture of what type of character she plays? In Dead Like Me, she plays a college dropout who is walking down the street one day and gets hit and killed by a toilet seat from a falling Russian space station. Honest, I kid you not. Thats the opening show. Instead of going somewhere, she becomes earthbound and joins others who are known as grim reapers. Their job is to take the soul of a person who is just about to die. After they do, some animal, possibly a monkey, that is invisible to the people, causes the accident that kills the victim, who then leaves with the reaper and goes to his eternal reward. Are you still with me? Though shes earthbound, she has a body, different from her own original body, and has to get a job to keep going. This girl, whose name is George (short for Georgia) gets an office job with a weird bunch of characters. She makes the mistake of going to her mothers garage sale, sees her things being sold and tries to buy one. This later leads to a confrontation and she blurts out the word mom to her mother, who, of course, doesnt recognize her and gets upset. She has a little sister, though, who is suspicious and is using a Ouija Board to try to find out the truth. In memory of her sister, the little girl also steals toilet seats, and hangs them from a tree in the nearby woods. The little girl ends up in therapy. Back to George. Of course, being a rebellious young person, she messes up a couple of assignments, and that gets her in trouble with Rube, who is her handler. He hands out assignments on yellow Post-It Notes with a name, address and time of death. Rube is play by Mandy Patinkin, who has also been in Chicago Hope and Criminal Minds There! Now that you understand the show, you can watch, but only if you get the Chiller network. You might also get it online, but Im not sure of that. By the way, this is an old show and there are only 29 episodes, so youd better catch it quickly if you want to watch. Its disappointing to me that it wont continue. There are a couple of things to learn from this. First, if someone comes up to you and gently touches your shoulder and you feel something leave your body, well, get ready. Your time is at hand. The second lesson? Thats obvious. Beware of falling toilet seats.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Sometimes, you really have to wonder about people, their thinking, their mentality, to put it bluntly, their smarts. Last week, some genius sent envelopes to various government-connected entities and to a daily newspaper. The letters contained a white powder. From what weve read, there was an index card with the words stand your ground in the envelope with the white powder, which reportedly was some sort of corn starch. As the letters were being received, government was spending a lot of money. Hazmat units had to be called in, buildings were evacuated, private and public operations were disrupted. For what? To get on the list of how not to make friends and influence people? Among the areas to receive a letter was the Marion County Jail. Now why would you send this type of mail to the jail? Were they trying to scare the inmates? Somehow, inmates dont strike me as the fearful types. So what happens now? As of this writing no arrests have been announced, although we have a feeling that authorities have been diligently at work trying to track down the source. What wed like to see is the process become a federal offense. After all, the U.S. mail was used. Also, sending a white powder through the mail seems to us to be a terrorist act. It disrupted and frightened government workers. If we get an arrest, and we treat it as terrorist act, we can take the suspect and ship him out to Guantanamo Bay without fanfare. It might not stick and he (or she) might be released, but you can be sure that others so inclined would think twice about doing something this silly. Meanwhile, watch your mail, especially if your work in an office with public access. You wouldnt want to get any of that corn starch all over you. Youth baseball tournament brings crowds to the countyIf you think that youth sports dont mean much to a community, you should check out the details about the Cal Ripken World Series for 10-year-olds that took place at the Rotary Complex in Southeast Ocala last week. The league, named after the great baseball player who set the all-time consecutive game record, is an offshoot of Babe Ruth League Baseball, which takes in players over the age of 12. This tournament was composed of 10 teams, one from Ocala, one from South Florida, and the rest from all around the country. The tournament was won by a team from California, knocking off a team from Kentucky in the finals. But for Marion County, the financial benefits were really what this was all about. The teams stayed in the southwest area, with the Hilton as the headquarters. Some followers stayed in other places, including the Holiday Inn on the opposite side of the Interstate. When they werent at the ballpark, these people all had to eat somehwere, and, we presume, did some shopping. So before you thumb your nose at youth sports, think of the economic boon to our area last week. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEWS COMMENTARY Mailing powder? Youre a terrorist A TV show so silly, its entertaining What if politicians could pick their own music? READER OPINIONS INVITED Bob Franken Columnist Jim Clark Editor A reminder about Letters to the Editor This is just a reminder to readers that, after the election last year, the South Marion Citizenadopted what is basically an industry standard, limiting letter-writers to one letter per month. Apparently some havent gotten the message, or they dont think we will enforce it, because we are receiving as many as four letters per month from some people. Please follow the rules.

Friday, August 23, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, August 23, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds Enjoying a casual evening at home, I reclined in my favorite easy chair reading, while the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was chatting on the telephone. I rarely pay attention to telephone conversations. After all, I only get one side of the conversation, which may be misleading at the very best. Ive been caught in that trap before with some pretty dire consequences. Im not going to get caught again. Then an odd phrase caught my attention: plastic surgery. My ears perked up and I heard my wife say, I certainly agree with that article and Im going to do some plastic surgery myself. Well, you can imagine what thoughts were racing through my head. When she hung up the telephone, I queried her about it. In my book, plastic surgery is a big step. You do support me in this plastic surgery plan, dont you? There are times to disagree with your spouse, but as a husband for over 40 years, I have never discovered that time. Forcing a smile, I nodded in the affirmative and told her she had my full support in whatever she decided. I had to admit that the time had finally come to our humble abode. Who am I to fight it? I go by this motto, He who smiles and agrees with his spouse lives to smile another day. I plan to smile until the day I die. I never really thought about plastic surgery, but perhaps my wife was right. Perhaps she could use a little face-lift. For me to get a facelift, the surgeons would need a huge construction crane. Then comes the awkward part, what do they do with my face after it was lifted? Women, more than men, are a little sensitive about their appearance. For a man, appearance means he showed up. A woman has an altogether different approach to the term appearance. Some women look in the mirror and see where some improvements could be made. For example, they see bags under their eyes that could not get through the airport carry-on luggage size requirement. Then there is the problem with their nose, which could stand a little tweaking. For all practical purposes, one of those double chins has to go. Moreover, what woman couldnt use a tummy tuck and other snippings of the flesh? Believe me; I never would have brought it up, but if that makes my wife happy, then whatever it costs, we can put it on a credit card. The only problem with putting something like this on a credit card is that by the time you pay it off you need another procedure. She is worth it in my checkbook. I have no compunction whatsoever of writing out that check. Each day I checked the appointment calendar hanging on our refrigerator to find out when she would be going in for the surgery. Daily I looked, but could never find any appointment. I supposed she was sensitive about the whole thing and did not want it staring at her day after day on the appointment calendar. Whatever the reason, she had my silent support, for all that was worth. I am sure she would do the same for me. That is what marriage is all about. Supporting one another in the developments of life, whatever that development might be. I decided to tuck this little bit in the back of my mind and, however it developed would be all right with me. One day this week, I went to the Slurp N Burp Caf for a quiet lunch. The issue was far from my mind as I enjoyed a delicious repast. As I finished my last cup of coffee, the waitress brought my bill and I pulled my wallet out to pay for it. In searching my wallet for a credit card I discovered, much to my double chagrin, that there were no credit cards to be found. Somehow, Id lost my credit cards. Perhaps, in the morning when I was getting dressed, they dropped out of my wallet as I was placing it in my trousers. The problem with that theory was that all the other cards in my wallet were intact. Fortunately, I had my cell phone and called my wife. Honey, Ive lost all my credit cards. Im here at the Plastic surgery isnt always what it seems to be restaurant and I cant find any credit cards in my wallet. Do you have any idea what I did with my credit cards? I cut them all up. You did what? You said you supported my plastic surgery plan, didnt you? But, I thought... You, thought what? Oh boy. Dear reader: please disregard the first part of this column. If you happen to read my obituary in next weeks newspaper, you will know that my lovely, vivacious, eternally youthful wife did not disregard the first part and Im currently Resting In Pieces. I must confess that my hearing is good; it is my understanding that falls so far short. The only exercise I am really good at is jumpingto-conclusions. This is common among many people who call themselves Christians. Their hearing is good but their doing, is not up to par. The apostle James understood this truth quite well. He writes, But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves James 1:22 (KJV). It is not so much what you hear that pays dividends in life, but what you do.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 e-mail jamessnyder2@att.net. His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com. Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder AND THE MOUNTAINS ECHOED By Khaled Hussein There are those who say that character shapes destiny but in And the Mountains Echoed it is geography that determines the future of its hapless characters. The novel opens in the town of Maidan Sabz, Afghanistan, a hot, dusty, desolate place where even finding water is a daily struggle. On a fall day in 1952 a father, a poor laborer, packs up two of his children, Abdullah and his little sister Pari, for the long trek to Kabul where their Uncle Nabi has promised the beleaguered family some much needed help. In a previous winter the fathers second wife delivered a son who died shortly after from the bitter cold. Now with mere survival on his mind this loving father is prepared to do the unthinkablesell his beautiful, tiny daughter to a wealthy family. The bond between the soon-to-be-parted siblings is so strong it will haunt both of them for a lifetime. Returning to his village without his sister, 10-year-old Abdullah reflects: She was like dust that clung to his shirt. She was the silence that had become so frequent in the house, silence that welled up between the words. Thus begins a series of interlocking stories taking readers from Afghanistan to Paris to San Francisco and beyond. For young Pari Kabul and the luxury of the Wahditi mansion is a welcome escape from the poverty of her hometown but much later in the novel after war and deprivation have altered the city a character would ay, Kabul is a thousand tragedies per square mile. Nila Wahditi, Paris new mother, is a complex alcoholic poet who leaves Kabul taking her young charge with her to Paris where she will eventually lose all but the dimmest memories of Afghanistan. But with so many other stories threaded throughout the novel the relationship to Abdullah and Pari is not always clear. Despite this one flaw there is much to appreciate in Husseins latest. The book is rich in overarching themes and settings and varying points of view. And in the hands of an author who knows how to weave mesmerizing stories, the prose is by turns touching, brutal, and heart wrenching.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your efforts to defend your project begin to show favorable results. You should soon be able to win over even the most determined detractors who lined up against it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You win praise for your efforts in a very difficult situation. But be careful not to allow your generous nature to be exploited by those who have their own agenda. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A trusted colleague sheds light on a recent spate of puzzling workplace situations. This should give you the information you need to bring to your superiors attention. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A shift in workplace management could be helpful for talented Leos and Leonas who have been waiting to have their accomplishments rewarded by receptive leadership. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A misunderstanding between you and someone you care for should be corrected immediately. This relationship is too important to lose over a bruised ego. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A welcome piece of good news helps clear the air in a family situation. A job-related incident also eases as more information provides a clearer focus on the problem. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Quick action to heal bruised feelings pays off in a big way. Now youll be able to move forward with your plans without that problem holding you back. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your creativity combined with a positive attitude should give you a considerable edge in finding a way to get around the negativity youve run into. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) That sudden streak of stubbornness could cause some problems. Try to be more open to helpful suggestions and more flexible in making needed changes. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Now that that special relationship appears to be well and truly restored, you can spend more time dealing with those long-needed workplace changes. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A new opportunity sounds promising. But watch out for any conditions that might be attached. Before making a decision, ask that each be explained in detail.

This seems appropriate, as it is Labor Day again, a holiday designed to celebrate all the workers of the USA, both those who are still working and those who are happy to be retired from working. We have always worked for something and/or for someone. Speaking of work, why dont you work this Labor Day by donating a little time and a pint of blood at On Top Of the Worlds Health and Recreation Center? You will find our bus in the front parking lot between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Life South Bloodmobile will be open for business, taking blood to save lives. Donating a pint every eight weeks may not seem like work, but it is very rewarding for all of us. Donating may not put money in your pocket, but it sure feels good. Your donation may help save lives of friends or total strangers. Okay, the pay is not immediate, and you may never know whose life you have saved, but you know that precious blood fills your heart and mind, not your wallet. Life South technicians are cheerful, efficient and talented. They give you a drink, some sort of a treat, and get your on your way quickly. Sure, you get a treat and a small gift, but the real reward is a great feeling of a job well done and perhaps lives saved. Will you roll up your sleeve on Labor Day? The payoff is long lasting! There will be a special raffle for a beautiful gift for one of our donors! The following are the 28 Life South Blood Contributors from July: Barbara Belz; Catherine Bennett Richard Copeland; Susan Copeland; Robert Cura; Kathleen Dushary; William Engels; Paul Estock; Pat Green; John Hegarty; Doris Holman; John Johnson; Sheryl Johnson; James Kerwick; Andrew Kirk; Nancy Ludvik; Roger McKay; Barbara Nastally; Carol Recknor Norman Recknor; Arthur Schneider; Susan Seitz; Judith Singer; Donna Spinelli; Debra Strob; Paul Wignitz; Richard Wittman.Line dancingThe Level 2 line dancing class is coming up!

Friday, August 23, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, August 23, 2013 www.smcitizen.com This years winner of the Norm Perllerin Challenge Nine Ball Tournament was Larry Murray. A great shooter, Larry has won three times in the six years that this competition has been going on. Fabio Ruiz was the runner up and Dave Bragdon placed third. Some of the best shooting of the day came in the final matches that pitted Larry against Fabio. Spectators were treated to some extraordinary play and exceptional shots as the two battled head to head. Fabio and Larry were tied at three games each in the sevengame set when Fabio pulled out a victory in the seventh game. In the second seven-game series played by the two, Larry was able to recover his winning ways and took four games straight. Exciting is one word that describes the play of the 27 competitors but it is totally an understatement. Four ladies entered this years tournament and they all gave the men a run for their money. Sandra Wilson; Judy Pniewski; Lois Crowley and Ruth Hurley combined to win 18 games and three out of 11 matches. Tournament Coordinator Rich Hurley expressed his appreciation to monitors Nan Brown and Holly Bragdon. Nan maintained order and kept the players from getting too rowdy while Holly kept records and scheduled the matches. We, the players would like to congratulate Larry Murray on his victory with a tongue in cheek; Wait until next year, and thank Richard Hurley and his volunteers for a great day of fun and games. For more about the tournament, check out your September Chirp magazine. BowlersAll Cherrywood bowlers are encouraged to attend the organizational meeting scheduled for 1 p.m. in the clubhouse on Aug. 26. This meeting is vitally important to the future of the league. Organizational plans will be discussed along with teams; officers; costs and many other details. If you want to be a regular on a team or a substitute bowler this season, it is important that you attend this meeting. There have been a great many improvements to the lanes and atmosphere at the Galaxy bowling alley so this year promises to be even bigger and better than last season. There is always room for more bowlers and its a great way to make and share friendships as well as keeping in shape. We hope to see everyone on Monday the 26th at 1 p.m. for a constructive and meaningful meeting.

Friday, August 23, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, August 23, 2013 www.smcitizen.com This years winner of the Norm Perllerin Challenge Nine Ball Tournament was Larry Murray. A great shooter, Larry has won three times in the six years that this competition has been going on. Fabio Ruiz was the runner up and Dave Bragdon placed third. Some of the best shooting of the day came in the final matches that pitted Larry against Fabio. Spectators were treated to some extraordinary play and exceptional shots as the two battled head to head. Fabio and Larry were tied at three games each in the sevengame set when Fabio pulled out a victory in the seventh game. In the second seven-game series played by the two, Larry was able to recover his winning ways and took four games straight. Exciting is one word that describes the play of the 27 competitors but it is totally an understatement. Four ladies entered this years tournament and they all gave the men a run for their money. Sandra Wilson; Judy Pniewski; Lois Crowley and Ruth Hurley combined to win 18 games and three out of 11 matches. Tournament Coordinator Rich Hurley expressed his appreciation to monitors Nan Brown and Holly Bragdon. Nan maintained order and kept the players from getting too rowdy while Holly kept records and scheduled the matches. We, the players would like to congratulate Larry Murray on his victory with a tongue in cheek; Wait until next year, and thank Richard Hurley and his volunteers for a great day of fun and games. For more about the tournament, check out your September Chirp magazine. BowlersAll Cherrywood bowlers are encouraged to attend the organizational meeting scheduled for 1 p.m. in the clubhouse on Aug. 26. This meeting is vitally important to the future of the league. Organizational plans will be discussed along with teams; officers; costs and many other details. If you want to be a regular on a team or a substitute bowler this season, it is important that you attend this meeting. There have been a great many improvements to the lanes and atmosphere at the Galaxy bowling alley so this year promises to be even bigger and better than last season. There is always room for more bowlers and its a great way to make and share friendships as well as keeping in shape. We hope to see everyone on Monday the 26th at 1 p.m. for a constructive and meaningful meeting.

This seems appropriate, as it is Labor Day again, a holiday designed to celebrate all the workers of the USA, both those who are still working and those who are happy to be retired from working. We have always worked for something and/or for someone. Speaking of work, why dont you work this Labor Day by donating a little time and a pint of blood at On Top Of the Worlds Health and Recreation Center? You will find our bus in the front parking lot between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Life South Bloodmobile will be open for business, taking blood to save lives. Donating a pint every eight weeks may not seem like work, but it is very rewarding for all of us. Donating may not put money in your pocket, but it sure feels good. Your donation may help save lives of friends or total strangers. Okay, the pay is not immediate, and you may never know whose life you have saved, but you know that precious blood fills your heart and mind, not your wallet. Life South technicians are cheerful, efficient and talented. They give you a drink, some sort of a treat, and get your on your way quickly. Sure, you get a treat and a small gift, but the real reward is a great feeling of a job well done and perhaps lives saved. Will you roll up your sleeve on Labor Day? The payoff is long lasting! There will be a special raffle for a beautiful gift for one of our donors! The following are the 28 Life South Blood Contributors from July: Barbara Belz; Catherine Bennett Richard Copeland; Susan Copeland; Robert Cura; Kathleen Dushary; William Engels; Paul Estock; Pat Green; John Hegarty; Doris Holman; John Johnson; Sheryl Johnson; James Kerwick; Andrew Kirk; Nancy Ludvik; Roger McKay; Barbara Nastally; Carol Recknor Norman Recknor; Arthur Schneider; Susan Seitz; Judith Singer; Donna Spinelli; Debra Strob; Paul Wignitz; Richard Wittman.Line dancingThe Level 2 line dancing class is coming up!

Friday, August 23, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, August 23, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your honesty might upset some people, but you inevitably win more admirers for having the courage to tell the truth when others are more likely to scramble for cover. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your efforts to defend your project begin to show favorable results. You should soon be able to win over even the most determined detractors who lined up against it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You win praise for your efforts in a very difficult situation. But be careful not to allow your generous nature to be exploited by those who have their own agenda. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A trusted colleague sheds light on a recent spate of puzzling workplace situations. This should give you the information you need to bring to your superiors attention. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A shift in workplace management could be helpful for talented Leos and Leonas who have been waiting to have their accomplishments rewarded by receptive leadership. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A misunderstanding between you and someone you care for should be corrected immediately. This relationship is too important to lose over a bruised ego. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A welcome piece of good news helps clear the air in a family situation. A job-related incident also eases as more information provides a clearer focus on the problem. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Quick action to heal bruised feelings pays off in a big way. Now youll be able to move forward with your plans without that problem holding you back. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your creativity combined with a positive attitude should give you a considerable edge in finding a way to get around the negativity youve run into. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) That sudden streak of stubbornness could cause some problems. Try to be more open to helpful suggestions and more flexible in making needed changes. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Now that that special relationship appears to be well and truly restored, you can spend more time dealing with those long-needed workplace changes. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A new opportunity sounds promising. But watch out for any conditions that might be attached. Before making a decision, ask that each be explained in detail. BORN THIS WEEK: You can be distracted by promises of good times, yet you ultimately reach the goals you set for yourself.

Friday, August 23, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, August 23, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds Enjoying a casual evening at home, I reclined in my favorite easy chair reading, while the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was chatting on the telephone. I rarely pay attention to telephone conversations. After all, I only get one side of the conversation, which may be misleading at the very best. Ive been caught in that trap before with some pretty dire consequences. Im not going to get caught again. Then an odd phrase caught my attention: plastic surgery. My ears perked up and I heard my wife say, I certainly agree with that article and Im going to do some plastic surgery myself. Well, you can imagine what thoughts were racing through my head. When she hung up the telephone, I queried her about it. In my book, plastic surgery is a big step. You do support me in this plastic surgery plan, dont you? There are times to disagree with your spouse, but as a husband for over 40 years, I have never discovered that time. Forcing a smile, I nodded in the affirmative and told her she had my full support in whatever she decided. I had to admit that the time had finally come to our humble abode. Who am I to fight it? I go by this motto, He who smiles and agrees with his spouse lives to smile another day. I plan to smile until the day I die. I never really thought about plastic surgery, but perhaps my wife was right. Perhaps she could use a little face-lift. For me to get a facelift, the surgeons would need a huge construction crane. Then comes the awkward part, what do they do with my face after it was lifted? Women, more than men, are a little sensitive about their appearance. For a man, appearance means he showed up. A woman has an altogether different approach to the term appearance. Some women look in the mirror and see where some improvements could be made. For example, they see bags under their eyes that could not get through the airport carry-on luggage size requirement. Then there is the problem with their nose, which could stand a little tweaking. For all practical purposes, one of those double chins has to go. Moreover, what woman couldnt use a tummy tuck and other snippings of the flesh? Believe me; I never would have brought it up, but if that makes my wife happy, then whatever it costs, we can put it on a credit card. The only problem with putting something like this on a credit card is that by the time you pay it off you need another procedure. She is worth it in my checkbook. I have no compunction whatsoever of writing out that check. Each day I checked the appointment calendar hanging on our refrigerator to find out when she would be going in for the surgery. Daily I looked, but could never find any appointment. I supposed she was sensitive about the whole thing and did not want it staring at her day after day on the appointment calendar. Whatever the reason, she had my silent support, for all that was worth. I am sure she would do the same for me. That is what marriage is all about. Supporting one another in the developments of life, whatever that development might be. I decided to tuck this little bit in the back of my mind and, however it developed would be all right with me. One day this week, I went to the Slurp N Burp Caf for a quiet lunch. The issue was far from my mind as I enjoyed a delicious repast. As I finished my last cup of coffee, the waitress brought my bill and I pulled my wallet out to pay for it. In searching my wallet for a credit card I discovered, much to my double chagrin, that there were no credit cards to be found. Somehow, Id lost my credit cards. Perhaps, in the morning when I was getting dressed, they dropped out of my wallet as I was placing it in my trousers. The problem with that theory was that all the other cards in my wallet were intact. Fortunately, I had my cell phone and called my wife. Honey, Ive lost all my credit cards. Im here at the Plastic surgery isnt always what it seems to be restaurant and I cant find any credit cards in my wallet. Do you have any idea what I did with my credit cards? I cut them all up. You did what? You said you supported my plastic surgery plan, didnt you? But, I thought... You, thought what? Oh boy. Dear reader: please disregard the first part of this column. If you happen to read my obituary in next weeks newspaper, you will know that my lovely, vivacious, eternally youthful wife did not disregard the first part and Im currently Resting In Pieces. I must confess that my hearing is good; it is my understanding that falls so far short. The only exercise I am really good at is jumpingto-conclusions. This is common among many people who call themselves Christians. Their hearing is good but their doing, is not up to par. The apostle James understood this truth quite well. He writes, But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves James 1:22 (KJV). It is not so much what you hear that pays dividends in life, but what you do.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 e-mail jamessnyder2@att.net. His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com. Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder AND THE MOUNTAINS ECHOED By Khaled Hussein There are those who say that character shapes destiny but in And the Mountains Echoed it is geography that determines the future of its hapless characters. The novel opens in the town of Maidan Sabz, Afghanistan, a hot, dusty, desolate place where even finding water is a daily struggle. On a fall day in 1952 a father, a poor laborer, packs up two of his children, Abdullah and his little sister Pari, for the long trek to Kabul where their Uncle Nabi has promised the beleaguered family some much needed help. In a previous winter the fathers second wife delivered a son who died shortly after from the bitter cold. Now with mere survival on his mind this loving father is prepared to do the unthinkablesell his beautiful, tiny daughter to a wealthy family. The bond between the soon-to-be-parted siblings is so strong it will haunt both of them for a lifetime. Returning to his village without his sister, 10-year-old Abdullah reflects: She was like dust that clung to his shirt. She was the silence that had become so frequent in the house, silence that welled up between the words. Thus begins a series of interlocking stories taking readers from Afghanistan to Paris to San Francisco and beyond. For young Pari Kabul and the luxury of the Wahditi mansion is a welcome escape from the poverty of her hometown but much later in the novel after war and deprivation have altered the city a character would ay, Kabul is a thousand tragedies per square mile. Nila Wahditi, Paris new mother, is a complex alcoholic poet who leaves Kabul taking her young charge with her to Paris where she will eventually lose all but the dimmest memories of Afghanistan. But with so many other stories threaded throughout the novel the relationship to Abdullah and Pari is not always clear. Despite this one flaw there is much to appreciate in Husseins latest. The book is rich in overarching themes and settings and varying points of view. And in the hands of an author who knows how to weave mesmerizing stories, the prose is by turns touching, brutal, and heart wrenching.

Friday, August 23, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, August 23, 2013 If youre a baseball fan, youre probably aware that major leaguers get to choose the song that blares from the speakers as they trudge to the batters box. What you hear is a genre variety of rap, country and some heavy metal. Some of the tracks are weird; others just loud. It would be appropriate if Alex Rodriguez came on to the chorus of Chance the Rappers Juice. Dont listen to the rest of it, because its offensive. Anyway, it isnt going to happen. This shtick has been featured in the movie Major League which, to some of us, is a silver-screen classic. In it, Charlie Sheen plays a Cleveland Indians pitcher with serious control issues. One of the funniest scenes in this truly sophisticated film is his entrance to The Troggs Wild Thing. What if the players in the contact sport of politics could do the same thing? Thered have to be a few tweaks, of course. Take President Barack Obama. Yes, he does have Hail to the Chief, but isnt that getting a bit tired? Besides, I use that as my wifes ringtone, so its time for POTUS to get something new. Given complaints from his supporters about his lackadaisical leadership style, maybe instead of Wild Thing, he could be preceded by Mild Thing: Mild thing. Progressive hearts sink. Conservatives are pleased with his decision to blow off Russian President Vladimir Putin and skip their little summit in Moscow. What a pity. Their last photo-op went so well. Which brings us to Vlad and his walk-on music: How about Put on a Happy Face? Back home, we all endure our own nonstop psychic torture, courtesy of Congress. The worst abuse comes from the House Republicans, controlled by the unruly tea-party extremists. Most of them got elected by telling fed-up voters in their gerrymandered districts that they didnt know diddly about the federal government, so they would destroy it. Now, here they are, after riding into town like a malicious Clampett family. Instead of the Beverly Hillbillies, their theme could be the Capitol Hillbillies who have loaded up the truck and moved their bubblin crude to Washington D.C., that is. Not that the hometown folks are any bargain. If you havent had a chance to read Mark Leibovichs book This Town, you might want to. He really nails the phonies who inhabit the upper echelons here, the permanent residents who go to the same parties, always looking over each others shoulders as they chat, to make sure theres not someone in the room who is more important. Mark calls it the D.C. scalp stare. He names names. Its brutally funny, and all true. For those of us who stab so many in the back simply to be noticed in the nations capital, the only thing worse than being mentioned in the book is not being mentioned. Without a doubt, in the minds and alleged hearts of the players here, Leibovich deserves one song only: Funeral March. But we, too, have an appropriate anthem, though its a far cry from Marks Chopin. Its from the blues group Fathead: First Class Riff-Raff. Have you ever run across a television program that is so dumb and ridiculous that its actually entertaining? Ive recently found one. Its called Dead Like Me, and reruns are on a cable channel called Chiller on Sunday evenings. Ill try to give you the basic plot, but you may have to go back and read it more than once. The show stars an actress named Ellen Muth, whose credits include a stint on All My Children and a spot on Law and Order, in a show that was rerun this past Sunday morning. In that one she was a teen who helped a couple of guys kill a delivery boy, just because they wanted to know what it felt like. Get the picture of what type of character she plays? In Dead Like Me, she plays a college dropout who is walking down the street one day and gets hit and killed by a toilet seat from a falling Russian space station. Honest, I kid you not. Thats the opening show. Instead of going somewhere, she becomes earthbound and joins others who are known as grim reapers. Their job is to take the soul of a person who is just about to die. After they do, some animal, possibly a monkey, that is invisible to the people, causes the accident that kills the victim, who then leaves with the reaper and goes to his eternal reward. Are you still with me? Though shes earthbound, she has a body, different from her own original body, and has to get a job to keep going. This girl, whose name is George (short for Georgia) gets an office job with a weird bunch of characters. She makes the mistake of going to her mothers garage sale, sees her things being sold and tries to buy one. This later leads to a confrontation and she blurts out the word mom to her mother, who, of course, doesnt recognize her and gets upset. She has a little sister, though, who is suspicious and is using a Ouija Board to try to find out the truth. In memory of her sister, the little girl also steals toilet seats, and hangs them from a tree in the nearby woods. The little girl ends up in therapy. Back to George. Of course, being a rebellious young person, she messes up a couple of assignments, and that gets her in trouble with Rube, who is her handler. He hands out assignments on yellow Post-It Notes with a name, address and time of death. Rube is play by Mandy Patinkin, who has also been in Chicago Hope and Criminal Minds There! Now that you understand the show, you can watch, but only if you get the Chiller network. You might also get it online, but Im not sure of that. By the way, this is an old show and there are only 29 episodes, so youd better catch it quickly if you want to watch. Its disappointing to me that it wont continue. There are a couple of things to learn from this. First, if someone comes up to you and gently touches your shoulder and you feel something leave your body, well, get ready. Your time is at hand. The second lesson? Thats obvious. Beware of falling toilet seats.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Sometimes, you really have to wonder about people, their thinking, their mentality, to put it bluntly, their smarts. Last week, some genius sent envelopes to various government-connected entities and to a daily newspaper. The letters contained a white powder. From what weve read, there was an index card with the words stand your ground in the envelope with the white powder, which reportedly was some sort of corn starch. As the letters were being received, government was spending a lot of money. Hazmat units had to be called in, buildings were evacuated, private and public operations were disrupted. For what? To get on the list of how not to make friends and influence people? Among the areas to receive a letter was the Marion County Jail. Now why would you send this type of mail to the jail? Were they trying to scare the inmates? Somehow, inmates dont strike me as the fearful types. So what happens now? As of this writing no arrests have been announced, although we have a feeling that authorities have been diligently at work trying to track down the source. What wed like to see is the process become a federal offense. After all, the U.S. mail was used. Also, sending a white powder through the mail seems to us to be a terrorist act. It disrupted and frightened government workers. If we get an arrest, and we treat it as terrorist act, we can take the suspect and ship him out to Guantanamo Bay without fanfare. It might not stick and he (or she) might be released, but you can be sure that others so inclined would think twice about doing something this silly. Meanwhile, watch your mail, especially if your work in an office with public access. You wouldnt want to get any of that corn starch all over you. Youth baseball tournament brings crowds to the countyIf you think that youth sports dont mean much to a community, you should check out the details about the Cal Ripken World Series for 10-year-olds that took place at the Rotary Complex in Southeast Ocala last week. The league, named after the great baseball player who set the all-time consecutive game record, is an offshoot of Babe Ruth League Baseball, which takes in players over the age of 12. This tournament was composed of 10 teams, one from Ocala, one from South Florida, and the rest from all around the country. The tournament was won by a team from California, knocking off a team from Kentucky in the finals. But for Marion County, the financial benefits were really what this was all about. The teams stayed in the southwest area, with the Hilton as the headquarters. Some followers stayed in other places, including the Holiday Inn on the opposite side of the Interstate. When they werent at the ballpark, these people all had to eat somehwere, and, we presume, did some shopping. So before you thumb your nose at youth sports, think of the economic boon to our area last week. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEWS COMMENTARY Mailing powder? Youre a terrorist A TV show so silly, its entertaining What if politicians could pick their own music? READER OPINIONS INVITED Bob Franken Columnist Jim Clark Editor A reminder about Letters to the Editor This is just a reminder to readers that, after the election last year, the South Marion Citizenadopted what is basically an industry standard, limiting letter-writers to one letter per month. Apparently some havent gotten the message, or they dont think we will enforce it, because we are receiving as many as four letters per month from some people. Please follow the rules. We go by the calendar month, and are keeping a list of letters we publish. So just send us one letter per month, and chances are it will be published.

Each dollar raised will go to supporting operations that have a direct effect on the freedom and wellbeing of victims of human trafficking, states Kim Stinsman, vice president.

Police agencies fight breast cancer Lightning strike damages Ocala homeA lightning strike during an intense thunderstorm caused a residential structure fire Saturday evening. An alert neighbor noticed the fire and called 911. Firefighters with Ocala Fire Rescue responded to 2202 N.E. 38th Terrace at 7:12 p.m. and arrived within minutes to quickly contain the fire to the attic. The homeowner who later arrived to the scene told fire officials he was not at home when the fire began. According to Battalion Chief Shane Alexander, firefighters quickly extinguished the attic fire and covered furniture inside the home with waterproof tarps to protect them from further damage. A building inspector with the city of Ocala who also responded deemed the house uninhabitable until the electrical system is checked and repairs are made. Damage to the $150,000 house is estimated at $8,000. 000FNFZ POWER WASHING Low Pressure Washing. We use Simple Green Soap.

Friday, August 23, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, August 23, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Back in 1992, Hurricane Andrew attacked southern Florida, and Louisiana from Aug. 22 to 26. Overall, it caused 65 fatalities and $26 billion in damage, and is currently the fourth costliest hurricane in U.S. history, behind only Hurricanes Katrina in 2005, Ike in 2008, and Sandy in 2012. The U.S. has three hurricane warning centers Coral Gables, Guam and Honolulu. All three have faced Category 4 hurricanes in the past. Which only goes to show: If you build it, they will come. Thinking of wind and rain brings us to some Pun Alley stories.Hurricane and himmicanesHurricanes were traditionally named after women because they arrive all windy and wild, and when they leave they take your house and your car. Nowadays, hurricanes are alternately named after men because theyre noisy, make a huge mess, and if you look into their eyes theres nothing there.Survivor benefitsWhen a hurricane blew across the Caribbean, an expensive yacht swamped by high waves sank. The two survivors, the boats owner, Dr. Smith and the steward, Marcus, swam to a deserted island. The steward was very upset that they would never be found. Dr. Smith on the other hand was quite calm, relaxing against a tree. Dr. Smith, how can you be so calm? cried Marcus. Were going to die on this lonely island. Listen to what I have to say, Marcus. began the confident Dr. Smith. Four years ago, I gave the United Way $500,000 and another $500,000 to my church. Three years ago I contributed $750,000 to each. Last year, business was good, so the two charities each got a million dollars. So what? shouted Marcus. Well, its time for their annual fundraising drives, and I know theyre going to find me! smiled Dr. Smith.Oops!Just after a hurricane the regular preacher could not get to his church because the water was too high by his house. A retired minister in the congregation was called upon to speak. He mentioned that the wind had just blown out a window in his house and he had to substitute a piece of cardboard for it and that he too was acting as a substitute. After the service, a woman who had listened intently shook hands with him and wishing to compliment him said, You were no substitute. You were a real pane.DelightedAt UF during one of the hurricanes a Chinese professor was lecturing to the students when all the lights in the auditorium went out. He asked everyone to raise their hands. As soon as they had all complied, the lights went on again. He then said, Prove wisdom of old Chinese saying, Many hands make light work.Raindrops With a hurricane threatening New Orleans, the mayor had denied canceling Mardi Gras, in fact he said, I expect a record number of floats on Main Street this year! First cave man to second cave man: I dont care what you say. We never had such unusual weather before they started using bows and arrows. A man said the only reason why his dwelling was not blown away in a storm was because there was a heavy mortgage on it. In Louisiana a lot of organic debris blown away by a hurricane was washed into the many water channels. Luckily most of this stuff is considered bayou degradable. And now for your extended forecast, Foooorrreeecaaaasssstt.No EscapeThere was a party in the national forest when the hurricane rain hit in a heavy downpour. Two guys ran and ran, finally reaching their car just as the rain let up. They jumped in, started it, and stepped on the gas, laughing and still drinking beer. All of a sudden an old mans face appeared in the window and he tapped on it! The passenger screamed, Look at my window! Theres an old guy there! The old man kept knocking, so the driver stepped harder on the gas. Now going about 80 miles an hour, they calmed down until there was a knock on the window and the old man appeared again. Go faster, the passenger yelled. Now at 100 miles an hour and still guzzling beer, trying to forget what they had seen, there was more knocking! Oh no! The passenger rolled down the window and screamed, What do you want? The old man replied, You want some help getting out of this mud?

Sept. 19, 12:30 p.m., The Braised Onion, 752 N.E. 25th Ave.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.

Callahan, 67 OcalaEdward J. Callahan, 67, of Ocala, passed away suddenly Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2013. He was born in Buffalo, N.Y., Nov. 22, 1945, son of the late Edward John and Elizabeth Frances (Grimmer) Callahan. Ed attended school in Buffalo, N.Y., and high school in Mesa, Ariz. In 1968 he met the love of his life at a college gathering and Ed married Patricia Eckert in her hometown of LaFargeville, N.Y., Aug. 30, 1969. In 1977 he earned his masters degree in education from State University College of Buffalo, N.Y. While attending college Ed worked summers on freighters in the Great Lakes and also as a travel agent with Niagara Frontier Travel Agency. Once he earned his degrees in the sciences he taught at Lancaster High School, N.Y. Following the Blizzard of 1977 he and Pat moved to Phoenix, Ariz., where for the next five years he taught at the Adobe Mountain School for the Dept. of Corrections as a vocational teacher and also enjoyed renovating and selling real estate properties. Upon returning to Clayton, N.Y., and later LaFargeville, N.Y., in the early 1980s he became the director of the Planetarium and Nature Center at Wiley School, Watertown School District, N.Y.; retiring in 1989. He then became owner and operator of Ramblers Roost Boat and RV Storage, Clayton, N.Y. For many years Ed raised and trained his personal companion samoyed dogs. In 2000 Pat retired and they enjoyed traveling; settling in Ocala in 2006. He loved boating, fishing, woodworking, visiting with friends and quiet mornings reading the newspaper. Ed and Pat enjoyed their daily walks with their dog Snow Prince. Ed is survived by his beloved wife of 44 years, Pat; siblings, Betty Anderson and her husband, John of Maryland and John Jack Callahan of Boone, North Carolina; Pats siblings, Peter Eckert and his wife RoseMary, Chris Eckert and his wife Diane, Ella Wilson and Tim Eckert; numerous nieces; nephews; great-nieces; and greatnephews. Pat will receive her family and friends for a celebration of life service Saturday, Aug. 24, 2013, at 4:30 p.m., with the service beginning at 5 p.m., in the TimberRidge Chapel of Hiers-Baxley Funeral Services, 9695 S.W. 110th St. Ocala, FL 34481. A second celebration of life service will be Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013, at 4:30 p.m., at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 1330 Gotham St. Watertown, NY 13601. Memorial contributions may be given to the Edward J. Callahan Scholarship Fund, LaFargeville Central School, c/o Nicole Parliament, P .O. Box 138, LaFargeville, NY 13656. Condolences may be expressed at www.hiers-baxley.com. OBITUARIES sent to the Florida Department of Health Bureau of Laboratories in Jacksonville for further testing. The suspicious packages that were opened were sealed on the back with a red heart sticker and contained post cards as well as a powdery substance. In response, the county stopped delivery for Friday of internal and incoming mail to the Board of County Commissioners departments and offices in an effort to protect both staff and citizens in county buildings. POWDERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Read the classifieds the schools orientation last week made opening day virtually trouble-free. The $20 million school is already paid for with sales tax dollars collected several years ago. While most students made it to class district-wide without incident, some buses were delayed because of normal first-day procedures including longer-thananticipated pickup times at new bus stops and drivers placing colored armbands on students for proper identification. Transportation issues are a common and expected occurrence during the first two weeks of class. Once drivers become aware of students and students learn their bus route numbers, stop times and locations, these problems dissipate. As of 4:30 p.m. Monday, the districts transportation hotline 352-671-7050 fielded nearly 1,800 calls compared to last years 1,227 on the first day, about a 46 percent increase. This hotline offers immediate help to parents with bus questions and concerns and operates 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each school day. As well, the districts Technology Help Desk answered over 400 calls, up from last years 300 from classroom teachers and other school technology users. Despite public education efforts, school administrators sent 477 seventh graders out of class because they did not have proof of their state-required immunizations 22 percent lower than last years 605. Even with these immunization concerns and transportation issues, the district ran remarkably smooth for a first-day opening. SCHOOLCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 forth between two issues, the other being the lack of public transportation west of Interstate 75. The speakers were primarily from an area called Oak Tree Village, which is on U.S. Highway 27 about a quarter mile west of the Interstate. They bemoaned the fact that they had to walk a long way to get to a bus, including elderly who had to get to doctors appointments. Others, who live off State Road 40, complained that there were no grocery stores in their area, and there was no transportation to get them there. A look at the SunTran map shows the westernmost stop on State Road 40 is at 33rd Avenue, which is east of the Interstate. On U.S. 27 its even further east, located about the 2400 block, east of 27th Avenue. Residents correctly pointed out that buses run out Maricamp Road well into Silver Springs Shores, and out State Road 40 East all the way to Silver Springs and north from there to Northeast 35th Street. Transportation Planning Organizations Greg Slay was in attendance, and Bryant told the people to talk to him about the problem. DOGSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 since Jack and Sherry Ashenfelter had to give up instructing some four years ago. The class meets each Monday from 12:45 to 2:45 in the H&R Ballroom. Bob and Janice introduce line dances they have seen at different dance festivals, dances recommended by friends, and dances based on music they enjoy.

Rich Nugent. Nugent speaks at Brentwood at Fore Ranch BY JIM CLARK EditorU.S. Rep. Rick Nugent, who represents the Corridor area in Congress, paid a visit to Brentwood at Fore Ranch, got a tour of the facility and spoke briefly to some of the residents. The Congressman told the audience he had three sons in the military, and had just gotten back from a visit to one of them in Germany. Asked about debates about health care, he firmly stated, I dont want to see any changes in Medicare and Social Security. He added that to change those programs after people had paid in to all of them would be a crime. He added, There are other ways to balance the budget. Nugent said that people who work all their lives and then turn 65, at least should have some certainty that the dollars pledged to them would be there. Asked about Obamacare, he noted that the employee mandate had been pushed back a year. He commented, The money just isnt there for what they promised. They overpromised and under-delivered. He invited people to call him or visit his Ocala office. U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent speaks at Brentwood on Monday. BY JIM CLARK EditorIf you thought the County Commission vote two weeks ago against the dog-tethering ban finalized things, well, guess again. Commissioners had to listen to the complaints all over again at their meeting, Tuesday, Aug. 20, as speaker after speaker pushed for the ban, and then some commissioners spoke back, leaving no doubt that a 24-hour ban on tethering dogs doesnt have a chance. In fact, Chairman Kathy Bryant at one point vehemently tapped the table with her pen and said, this commissioner will not support a 24-7 ban. Earlier, Bryant said she has a dog, a small one, and said, I take care of my animals, and I dont want government telling me how to do that. That seemed to be the consensus of the board. Stan McClain said that enforcement concerned him, and added, We do have tethering laws on the books. Tell me how this is going to change that. One speaker called the tethering cruel and barbaric, and another spoke of a fatal attack by a tethered dog on a small child in Duval County who wandered into the yard. A member of a program called Project Pup said, in favor of dogs, I would not like to see the world without them. At the end, the commission decided to appoint a task force to examine the issue. The tethering ban was not even on the agenda, but came up because of speakers in the public portion of the meeting. Speakers bounced back and Tethering debate resurfaces PLEASESEEDOGS, PAGE26 Mailed white powder causes scare in countyMarion County Fire Rescue provided mutual aid to Ocala Fire Rescue and cooperated with several local agencies Friday regarding suspicious packages received at the Ocala Police Department, the Marion County Courthouse, the Marion County Jail, the Marion County Superintendent of Schools office and the Ocala Star Banner. No one was treated for exposure and there are no injuries due to these packages. MCFRs Shady Station 16 Hazmat Team responded to a suspicious package call at the Ocala Police Department at 11:09 a.m. The crews used specialized monitors to rule out biological, explosive, chemical and radiological agents and determined the substance to be corn starch through a subsequent test. Shortly after, at 12:07 p.m., MCFR responded to a suspicious package call at the Marion County Courthouse. MCFR firefighters analyzed this package and determined that it contained corn starch as well. The Marion County Public Safety Communications Center received suspicious package reports from the jail, the superintendents office and the Star Banner at 1:08 p.m., 1:14 p.m. and 1:31 p.m. respectively. These packages were not opened and were also analyzed by MCFRs Hazmat crew. The package at the Star Banner revealed trace amounts of radiation.
