Folks from On Top of the World and Stone Creek took a tour recently. More photos on Page 3. BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the CitizenIt was a sad but a day of celebration on Sunday, Aug. 25, at Joy Lutheran Church when 90-100 members came together to wish Fred and Judi Minster a fond goodbye. Sixteen years ago Fred and Judi moved to this area from Saginaw, Michigan to retire and reside at Spruce Creek Preserve. They joined the Joy congregation when it was in its infancythey were nine months short of being charter members. It did not take this couple long before they became actively engaged in the church activities. Judi, with her background as a Certified Public Accountant and treasurer in a northern church, joined the church staff first as attendance secretary, then financial secretary and later as treasurer. She maintained the treasurer position till this year. In her tenure here at Joy she also volunteered for the financial committee, stewardship committee and the Council. She lent her talents to both the vocal and bell choirs. Fred, soon after joining the church, also joined the church staff as custodian for Swenson Hall, and sexton for the church. His past experience in maintenance in the General Motors Foundry in Michigan proved to be helpful. Fred was well-known among the congregation for his coordination and supervision of the Sound Room in the church. This became a significant area over the years as the demand for more electronics, visual aids, sound and light equipment were required in the worship services and general functioning of the church. Fred was tireless in his efforts to keep the equipment updated and in working order. He trained many volunteers to assist him in this effort. Fred also served on the Worship and Music Committee and sang in the choir. In their free time, Fred and Judi enjoyed square dancing and participated in a group in Spruce Creek. Fred had been a square dance caller in Michigan. So now they plan to retire again back to their home state of Michigan near their many children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The congregation on this Sunday honored Fred and Judi with a pot-luck luncheon. Senior Pastor Edward Holloway, Jr. thanked them for their many years of service which they did with gusto and joy. Pastor Ed gave them a financial tribute from the Council. The Quilters of the church gave them each a quilt. Through tears, Judi thanked the members for this display of gratitude and assured them that it had been a pleasure to work for them. Fred left us with a joke about a rabbit and thanked the members for all their love which they will take with them. PHOTO BY NORMAN HALVORSENFred and Judi Minster, left, share some humor with Pastor Ed Holloway about returning to the snows of the northland. Joy Lutheran says goodbye to couple headed north The summer of led to marriage for John and Mildred Dollie Ryan on Sept. 1, 1951 in Philadelphia. Now living in Oak Run, the couple will celebrate their 62nd wedding anniversary on Sunday. They met while both were working at a Christian summer camp in the Pocono Mountains. Dollie was working in the kitchen and John Ryan had the job of checking in the new campers. Each made a $1 per day on their respective jobs. She lived in the country at Ambler and John lived in Philadelphia. But the romance didnt blossom for a couple of years. Dollie and one of her girlfriends wanted to go New York to see another person they had worked with at summer camp. Needing a ride and not having a car, Dollie called John and asked if he would take them to New York. John jokes about the invite that Dollie was bored one day at work and called him for something to do since she was working as a switchboard operator. John agreed to the New York trip and afterward the two started dating. In June 1951, John went into the Army. Home on leave a couple of months later they were married. John spent two years in the Army including time in Korea. Back in the states John went to work doing maintenance in a large office building the Land Title building for 41 years before retiring. Dollie worked as the activity director for the Philadelphia Protestant Home. They had three sons, who all live in Florida now. After retiring, the couple remained in Philadelphia but would vacation in Florida. Those trips would usually mean a stop in Ocala to see one of Johns coworkers who retired to Oak Run. Once they decided they had enough of snow, cold and traffic, they moved to Oak Run too. Dollie is active in many of the communitys clubs and John enjoys staying at home.

Friday, August 30, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, August 30, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A little woolgathering for the usually productive Lamb is all right if it helps you unwind. But be careful; too much daydreaming can put you behind schedule in your work. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A work problem is close to being resolved. Now you can go ahead and celebrate the week, accepting invitations from friends who enjoy your company. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Getting your new plan accepted wont be a major hassle if you have the facts to back it up. Your supporters are also prepared to help you make your case. Good luck. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dealing with a pesky job problem might be time-consuming but necessary. The sooner you get this situation settled, the sooner you can move on to other matters. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Career advancement is favored thanks to your impressive work record. On the personal side, you should soon hear some good news about an ailing family member. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) There might be mixed signals from a certain someone who doesnt seem all that certain about his or her intentions. Best to sort it all out before it becomes more confusing. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Get all the facts about that investment opportunity before you put even one dollar into it. There could be hidden problems that could be costly. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Compromising on a matter you feel strongly about not only ends the impasse, but can be a winwin deal for all. Remember: Scorpios do well with change. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) With all the demands you have to deal with, accepting the help of family and friends could be the wisest course to take at this time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Recent upsetting incidents might have left you with a big gap in your self-assurance. Refill it by spending time with those who know how worthy you really are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A dispute about money needs to be resolved quickly, before it festers into something more serious. Consider asking an impartial colleague to mediate the matter. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A soft approach could be more effective than making a loud demand for the information you need. You might even find yourself with more data than you expected. BORN THIS WEEK: Youre sought out for the wonderful advice youre able to offer to others. And sometimes you even take it yourself. Saturday, Oct. 5 Purple Pink ie Peanut Run/5KThe Williston Rotary Club will sponsor a 5K run and a one mile fun run/walk Saturday, Oct. 5 beginning at 8 a.m. The entry fee is $25 prior to Sept. 20 and will include a commemorative T-shirt.

Friday, August 30, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, August 30, 2013 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenWho should run the Federal Reserve System when chairman Ben Bernankes term expires next year: Vice Chair Janet Yellen or former Obama adviser Lawrence Summers? Neither. Who then? No one. The fact is, we need the Federal Reserve like we need a hole in the head. Contrary to folklore, the Fed is not needed to stabilize the economy or to prevent unemployment. As the Fed heads into its second century, we ought to realize that its record is terrible. Even if we dont count the interwar period (which some economists call the new Feds practice round), Americas central bank is a flop. Monetary economists George A. Selgin, William D. Lastrapes, and Lawrence H. White wrote in Has the Fed Been a Failure?: Drawing on a wide range of recent empirical research, we find the following: (1) The Feds full history (1914 to present) has been characterized by more rather than fewer symptoms of monetary and macroeconomic instability than the decades leading to the Feds establishment. (2) While the Feds performance has undoubtedly improved since World War II, even its postwar performance has not clearly surpassed that of its undoubtedly flawed predecessor, the National Banking system, before World War I. The authors support that generalization with details. On inflation: Far from achieving long-run price stability, [the Fed] has allowed the purchasing power of the U.S. dollar, which was hardly different on the eve of the Feds creation from what it had been at the time of the dollars establishment as the official U.S. monetary unit, to fall dramatically by 95 percent. Selgin, Lastrapes, and White also show that the central bank has given us longer recessions and slower recoveries. But without the Fed, who would set interest rates to guide the economy? The first answer is that government policy and Fed manipulations can create the very recessions that the Fed then tries to reverse. If the politicians and their court economists would get over their hubristic belief that they are stewards of the economy, macroeconomic crises would disappear. Besides, the Fed cannot set interest rates, not even its narrow federal-funds rate for overnight interbank loans. At most, it targets that rate by buying and selling government securities, but it doesnt always hit its target. The idea that the Fed can even heavily influence mortgage and other interest rates ignores important facts. First, the Feds operations are small compared to the complex U.S. and world economies. Writes monetary economist Richard Timberlake, Traditional economics properly teaches that many complex market forces countless investment and savings decisions not dependent on monetary factors are essential in determining interest rates. The Fed funds rate that Fed policy can influence through its monopoly over the quantity of money is inconsequential in shaping most short-term and long-term rates in capital markets, unless that moneymaking power subsequently promotes a pervasive price inflation. Second, the Fed cant lower rates through monetary inflation beyond the very short run. Why not? Because lenders will respond by raising their rates to avoid being screwed by price inflation unless the Fed prevents the inflation, as its been doing, by effectively borrowing back the new money from the banks at interest. Moreover, as monetary economist Jeffrey Rogers Hummel points out, Globalization, with the corresponding relaxation of exchange controls in all major countries, allows [investors) easily to flee to Confession is good for the soul, they say, whoever they are. So it's time to confess that, according to recent news events, I once did something cruel and unusual, and it's probably going to make the PETA people mad at me. When I was a young adult, still living with my parents in northeastern New Jersey, we tethered our dog. Lady was a solid black, cocker-spaniel type, as friendly as could be and full of energy. All three of us in the household worked at the time, so Lady would have been alone quite a bit during the day. My dad rigged up a wire in the back yard that ran from the back door landing out to the garage, which was about 60 feet away. We had a rope with attachments at either end, and it was hooked, one end to the wire, the other to her collar. That way she had free run of the back yard, about 20 feet on each side of the wire and all they way from the garage to the back door. There was a roof over the back door landing, and the garage was usually kept partially open so she could go in. There was always water out there. When we were leaving in the morning, all we had to say was Time to go, and she would run for the back door and wait. When we opened the door, she would run out but stop at the rope, which was hooked to the railing on the landing. Once she was hooked up, away she went. When the first one got home, she would go to the back stoop and wait, and when she was unhooked, she would go into the house. There were rules as to where she could go, mostly enforced by my mother. One thing was she was banned from jumping on the bed. My dad didn't really care, but I was the rebel. She had places to hang out, but when Lady came in my room, I'd close the door and she would jump on the bed. My wife, then my girlfriend, had given me a little red furry thing about eight inches long and a couple inches wide, that sat on my bed. Lady used to love playing with it and, when she got tired of that, would lie on the bed and cuddle with the furry toy. If my mom was coming, she knew to jump off the bed and hide under the floor-length bedspread. She got far enough under that her eyes were covered, but what she didn't realize was that her nose would stick out. Hey, she was smart, but not that smart. So I'm listening at a County Commission meeting a couple of weeks ago to a couple of passionate speakers who want the county to ban all tethering, and I'm wondering why. Some of the arguments made no sense, including one that a dog could get angry and attack someone who came near it. Well, would you want that angry dog running loose where it could jump a fence and attack someone? One person spoke of a lady unloading groceries from her car and while she did, her 3-year-old child wandered into the neighbor's yard and was mauled. I'm sorry for the loss of any child, but failure to properly supervise a 3year-old contributed directly to his death. If dogs are tethered improperly, the county already has animal cruelty laws. Enforce them. It's that simple. Kathy Bryant, chairman, put it perfectly: I take care of my animals, and I don't want government telling me how to do that. Agreed. Dont punish good people because of a few bad ones. The results could be worse than what youre seeing now.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK Citizen The opinions expressed in South Marion Citizen editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.Viewpoints depicted in political cartoons, columns or letters do not necessarily represent the opinion of the editorial board.Groups or individuals are invited to express their opinions in letters to the editor and guest columns.Persons wishing to contact the editor should call 8543986.All letters must be signed and include a phone number and community name, including letters sent via e-mail.

The Ocala City Council and the Marion County Commission should follow the Alachua County Commissions lead in updating its sign ordinance to ban human signs. Weve all seen them, the people standing on the sidewalk with signs promoting various businesses, such as we buy gold or car washes, etc. Alachuas ordinance bans any of these signs on the right of way, which includes sidewalks. They must be on private property. The ban includes all human signs, including costumes. Its only within the past few years that these human signs have proliferated our county. Its gotten to a point where you cant go more than a couple of blocks in a business district without seeing one. However, some form of these signs have been around forever. In the old days, some restaurants even had people walking around with their menus on a sign. Now, though, we see so many that in some instances there are sign-carriers sharing a corner. Some have even spread to the median of our highways, where they are a major distraction to the driving public, to say nothing about making the county look junky. Alachua County originally stopped these sign displays some time ago, but someone sued and forced the county to change its policies. Now Alachua has upgraded its ordinance in what it hopes will be compliance with the federal court ruling. Its not only businesses involved. On any Saturday morning, you can see young people promoting a nearby car wash to raise funds for their activities. While no one wants to see these car washes fail, there is a major safety factor here. Have you ever been driving along and seen a 12-year-old appear just off the pavement of the road waving a car wash sign at you? This is a dangerous practice, and moving them back off the right of way wouldnt hurt a bit. Marion County governments should keep an eye on Alachuas efforts, and if they survive legal challenges, our county should adopt the same law, word for word. While this may not get rid of the human signs completely, at least it will push them back off the right of way. So were asking our local governments to give our sidewalks back to the pedestrians. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Human sign ban should be on agenda To some, I guess Im just a cruel person Simple solution: Get rid of the Fed altogether READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE10 Taking responsibilityWhen Picketts Charge at Gettysburg failed on July 3, 1863, Confederate commander Robert E. Lee said it is entirely my fault. The night before the June 6, 1944, D-Day invasion, Allied Commander Dwight Eisenhower wrote that if anything went wrong the next day, the fault is mine and mine alone. When the D-Day invasion succeeded, Ike issued a statement giving all the credit to the men and women who participated in it. When the Dallas Cowboys lost the nail-biter Ice Bowl to the Green Bay Packers on Dec. 31, 1967, Cowboys QB Don Meredith stated on national TV that the loss was all his fault. To this day, retired San Diego Chargers QB Dan Fouts blames their Jan. 10, 1982, Freezer Bowl 27-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on his poor play. These people were the adults in the room, who accept blame when things go wrong. So why cant our national leaders do the same? We have President Obama blaming our economic problems on G.W. Bush, the Benghazi attack on a You-Tube video, the IRS scandal on a couple rogue employees, etc. When youre in charge, you accept responsibility for failures, and do your best to correct them. To play the blame game is childish. Al Shumard Pine Run LETTER TO THE EDITOR class to help ease the emotional process of passing on cherished family possessions. Refreshments will be served.

Friday, August 30, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, August 30, 2013 www.smcitizen.com For my wifes birthday (I am not allowed to mention which one) I surprised her with round trip tickets to her family reunion in upper New York State. Out of courtesy to her, I elected not to include myself in her little vacation. After all, it is her family and that is just the kind of man I am. I must say I was looking forward to a week in the house by myself, where I could be the absolute boss. Nobody to tell me what to do. Nobody to tell me where to go. For a week, I would be the king of my castle; the captain of my ship; the pilot of my spacecraft. Actually, I need more than one week to do all of these things. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage deserves time off and away from Yours Truly. All year long, she works hard and most of the time has her hands full trying to untangle me from one foil after another. Lately, it has developed into a foil-time job. The day finally came for me to take her to the airport and see her off. As I kissed her goodbye, my thoughts roved back to the week that lay before me as a freelance husband. All the way back from the airport I played my Barry Manilow CD. I like Barry Manilow because he cant Smile without Me. Believe me, a smile creased my clock all the way home. One difference between men and women, or maybe I should say husbands and wives, is the notion of cleanliness. Wives have the idea that cleanliness is next to godliness. If true, ours is the godliest house on the planet. Even God must wipe his feet before coming into our home. As a man, I see absolutely no connection between cleanliness and godliness. I do my best thinking, not to mention praying, in the midst of clutter. If godliness is related to happiness, then I am in heaven when I am in the midst of hodgepodge the podgier the better. Along about Friday afternoon I was absolutely in heaven. The house was a complete wreck and I could not have been happier. About this time, an incident developed that brought me to my senses. I was about ready to take a shower when I noticed the soap and shampoo in my shower were gone. I knew reserves are somewhere in our house but for the life of me; I could not put my fingers on any of it. This is by my wifes design. Notwithstanding, and I was standing in my birthday suit, I needed to take a shower. Then a brilliant idea struck me. Since my wife has not been home all week, the shampoo and soap in her shower should be in great supply. Snatching my towel from my shower, I headed for hers. One thing I noticed in my wifes shower was the variety of bottles. Not wearing my glasses, I could not read the labels on any of them. However, I was not here to read bottles, but to take a shower, and so I disregarded the labels. I turned on the shower, adjusted the water temperature and began my shower. I reached for the nearest bottle, which I assumed was shampoo. After dousing my hair with a generous portion, I began scrubbing my head. I noticed, however, no suds. I grabbed another bottle and repeated the procedure with the same results. After using 17 bottles, I finally found one that produced suds. I remember thinking to myself, what does my wife do with all these bottles in her shower that do not do anything? Nevertheless, in a moment I forgot the whole incident, stepped out of her shower and toweled off. I made a cup of coffee and settled into my easy chair to watch a little television. As I sat there, I noticed a strange fragrance. This is the difference between men and women. A man enjoys strange smells. A woman, on the other hand, enjoys fragrant aromas. I smelled a fragrant aroma with a strong tinge of fruit about it. It smelled as if someone had brought me a bowl of mixed of fruit. I knew for a fact, there was no fruit in the house, so this fruity aroma puzzled me. I got up and walked around the house looking for this bowl of fruit. No matter what room I was in, I could smell the fruit. It was the strangest thing I ever experienced. Finally, I went back to my easy chair and cup of coffee not knowing where these fruity fumes were coming from. Some mysteries are tough to solve. Then something hit me right between the eyes. The fruity bouquet was coming from me! I took several healthy sniffs and discovered I smelled like a bowl of fruit. I could not understand this phenomenon. Then I remember the bottles in my wifes shower. I went back to investigate and discovered my wife had bottles of fruity concoctions of every variety. A verse from the Bible came to mind. But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God. (Philippians 4:18 KJV.) The only fragrance worth dwelling on is a life well pleasing to God.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.

When the reporter returned to the office her editor asked, Did you get the story? The lady reporter said, No. I got thrown out by the doctor from the Daily News.

Add to this the ability to purchase from many governments securities that are indexed to inflation, and it becomes highly unlikely investors will be caught off guard by anything less than sudden, catastrophic hyperinflation (defined as more than 50% per month) and maybe even not then. While inflation is not the threat it once was, the Fed is not harmless. Bernanke has so expanded the Feds discretionary actions beyond merely controlling the money stock that it has become a gigantic, financial central planner, Hummel writes. No one should have such power. Money was not invented by government. It was the spontaneous creation of people trying to ease exchange in the marketplace. Central banks like the Fed only messed money up, robbing the people while facilitating warfare and welfare spending through irresponsible large-scale government borrowing. Thus the Fed should be deleted.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org).

Peggy is originally from Big Sky Country, Montana, and has lived in Florida since 1997. She has a strong banking background and, most recently, was a general manager for another 55+ community in Ocala. I decided that I just wanted to work part time, and took seven months off, cleaning out every closet and cupboard in my house. So my husband, Ray, said, You need to go back to work. (Since) I enjoyed my time as a GM and enjoyed my residents, when this opportunity came up, it was a good fit for both Adina (Marion Landing Community Association Manager) and me. I look forward to assisting Adina and find through our conversations that we have very many things in common.Early morning exercise If youre an early bird, you might want to join the Early Exercise group from 8 to 8:30 a.m. in the Great Room.

BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comAn opportunity to save a live, bowling, and line dancing constitute this weeks OTOW Happenings.Life SouthThe Life South Bloodmobile will be at OTOW on Monday, Sept. 2. 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. OK, 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! Are you interested in burning calories, improving your balance, tickling your brain, improving your physical being, and gaining social skills while having fun? And at no cost to you!

The SoundArt concert series provides patrons with an intimate look at various genres of orchestral music, by bringing small ensembles of musicians to perform at the Appleton Museum of Arts auditorium. This series is an interactive experience, which allows patrons to ask questions about the music being performed. In addition to attending the concert, the purchase of a ticket to SoundArt includes entry to the museum. The first concert of the series, Those Endearing Edwardians brings a chamber music recital of English concert music of the early 20th century including original concert works, delightfully entertaining light classics of the Palm Court genre and transcriptions and arrangements penned by Dr. Duncan MacMillan especially for this concert. Works by such beloved composers as Edward Elgar, Percy Grainger, Gustav Holst, Hubert Parry, Samuel Coleridge Taylor, and Ralph Vaughn Williams and others will be featured. The concert will be held at the Appleton Museum of Art at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 29. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by visiting www.ocalasymphony.com or calling 352-351-1606. The Ocala Symphony Orchestra is Marion Countys premier cultural arts organization. Founded in 1975, the orchestra averages a dozen concerts throughout the year in front of nearly ten thousand area citizens. Its mission is to play the highest caliber music that is performed by skilled musicians under the dynamic leadership of a brilliant and energetic music director Matthew Wardell. It is driven to reach, entertain and inspire audiences of all ages while serving the broadest group of constituents and to foster excellence in music education through collaborative partnerships with local resources.

Set against 17th century Marthas Vineyard, the story of teenage Bethia is an inspiring tale of awakening to a new perspective with the help of a native man. Restless and curious, Bethia thwarts efforts to deny her an education by eavesdropping on her brothers lessons. At the tender age of 12 she meets the native son of a chieftain and they form a secret friendship. Later her minister father, attempting to bring the tribes to Christianity by first educating them, brings Bethias friend into the household, renaming him Caleb and preparing him for Harvard. And, indeed, both the fictional Caleb and his real life counterpart did graduate from Harvard, making him the first Native American to do so. Throughout the novel Bethia braids the Puritan beliefs she tests and reflects on. To that end, one day on the beach Caleb and Bethia are discussing religion, each challenging the others beliefs. Suddenly the scales fall from the girls eyes as she realizes that her own religion could sound as crazy to Caleb as his does to her: It came to me that our story of a burning bush and a parted sea might also seem fabulous to one not raised up knowing it was true. A motherless child, Bethias life is a hard one but her quiet insistence on using the best of whatever is handed to her helps her survive her struggles. Brooks laces her book with well-known New England names like John Winthrop and Thomas Mayhew and Anne Bradstreet. But whereas the facts concerning Caleb have been meticulously researched, the story of Bethia is pure fiction. The title Calebs Crossing is appropriate at least as to the crossing part. For Caleb both physically crosses from his island home to Cambridge and from his Indian world into Bethias. But the story itself is the girls almost exclusively because at best Caleb is a sketchy character. Even so, this is an engrossing read that I recommend.

The founder of Guinness Beer was born over 250 years ago.

Our celebration of Arthur Day will include the Spirit of Ocala Irish Dancers and music by Richard OBecotte who will be playing a vast variety of Irish and American tunes. You will have the pleasure of watching this lively performance of lovely ladies as well as listening to the favorite Irish songs youve come to know and love.

If youd like a chance to win a prize, dress in the appropriate attire for the occasion because there will be a contest that evening.

This promises to be a wild Irish bash with great entertainment; a wide assortment of snacks and of course, you can bring your favorite libation to enhance your spirits. Ticket sales are limited to just 120 so act fast and see Geri and be a part of this wild Irish fling.From your reporterFor most of us dog owners, our little companions are a part of our family. While biologically classified as animals they are far from that in our eyes. In fact, in some cases we prefer the company of our pets to that of some people we know. Just like with our children, there is a bond that develops between owner and the four legged kids. They give us so much pleasure and laughter but like children, they need special care and protection. In Ocala, like in most of the country, there is a problem with coyotes whose habitat has been infringed on by humans. These members of the canine species dont know pet from wild animal and all they are looking for is a meal. It is up to us humans to try and insure our pets dont become dinner for these wild creatures. Another threat to very small pets is the birds. Hawks; eagles etc. all have the ability to pick up a small animal and take it away. Because of these threats, leaving small pets unattended in the yard or on a tether can be very risky. Many of our residents have now begun walking their dogs on a leash where they can protect them from predators and still allow them to take care of business. My neighbors are now carrying defensive sprays; walking sticks and canes; and other self defense items when taking their dogs out. In most cases just being with your dog will keep him safe but you never know in nature what can happen. Being prepared is always a good idea. We know how hard it is to lose a member of the family; especially a puppy so Im putting these tips out there to help prevent any tragedies. Nature is a beautiful thing but in many cases it is cruel and unforgiving so awareness is essential. Enjoy walking your dog and give him or her and extra ear rub from me, your humble correspondent. You can contact me with comments concerning the Cherrywood section of your Citizen newspaper at urperssec@yahoo.com. Im always glad to hear from you, the reader. Friday, August 30, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, August 30, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Our 100 Days of Summer celebration on Aug. 19 was highlighted right before the dinner with the surprise recognition of our long time resident deejay, Richard Becotte. Jay OHern of the Social Committee; William Mahar, president of the Veterans Club; Eve Houghtaling, chair of the Activities Committee and Geri representing Cherrywood Property Management and its residents were called forward. Once they were in place, Richard was called to join them and presented with a beautiful plaque thanking him for his hundreds of hours of service to this community. Rich plays his songs at many of the functions of the Social and Activities Committees; all of the veterans programs; and many private gatherings; supplying the dance and mood music that are vital to a successful celebration. Monica, Richards wife, joined him at the front of the room to receive the thanks of all gathered and was presented with a dozen red roses. Everyone knows that behind every successful man stands a loving and supporting partner and soul mate; Everyone present wanted Monica to know how much she too is appreciated. Both Monica and Richard received a rousing round of applause from the more than 200 people who had gathered for our Hot Summer Night party. We deeply appreciate Rich and Monica for their contribution to the quality of life in our community. Following the ceremony, guests were called to the dinner table where they were served delicious open faced turkey sandwiches with sweet potato, five bean salad and ice cream for dessert. Our Social Committee volunteers did an outstanding job of getting the more than 240 guests through the line in just under 32 minutes. The task of feeding a crowd as large as this one was requires expertise; coordination and a lot of hard work. Preparations for the evening was done by Marty Duesel; Dave Siegel and Fred OHern while Joannie Siegel; Sandee Spencer; Janice McLeod; Marti Duesel and Dave Siegel did the kitchen work and made up the plates. The presentation for the meals and getting everyone through the lines was handled by Marty Duesel and Janice McLeod. Drinks were served by Mick James; Ken McLeod; Dick Francis and Bill Mahar. Entertainment was provided by Richard Becotte and his lovely wife Monica sold 50/50 tickets. Our Hostess was Geri and she did the thankless job of calling up the many tables filled with hungry guests one at a time.

David Siegel gave a presentation for the CERT Team and Gen Downs spoke about the exercise program and Social Committee events. Richard Becotte introduced the new people to the various entertainment programs given by the Activities Committee and spoke about pool and the various clubs available to everyone. Bill Mahar spoke about the Veterans Club and all the good works that our veterans do. As a result, three of the four newcomers signed up to join. Everyone enjoyed the coffee and pastries that were a part of this informal and warm social event. Our new residents attending were Ann and Joe Jones; Sheldon Friedman and Michael Boehly. We warmly welcome these new additions to our community.Trivia winners Donna James did another outstanding job as quiz master for this months Trivia Night at Cherrywood. Her questions included the subjects of geography; science; history and entertainment all spiced up with her sense of humor and knowledge of the subjects. Wednesday night saw more than 25 people gather in the clubhouse to test their wits against the others and the competition was close. Only three points separated the first and second place teams at the end of the evening. Winners, Marion OHern; Trude Smith; Linda Hallermeier and Susan were able to outsmart the second place team which included Victor Ogreen; Richard Downs; Joe Gignac and yours truly. We congratulate those ladies but we are waiting anxiously for next month. Seriously, the girls answered 41 of 45 questions; an excellent score. Next month Trivia will be hosted by Fred OHern who among the usual questions will be including at least 10 of those questions gleaned from the August and September issues of the Chirp magazine. With that kind of a hint, everyone should be able to score at least a ten. Come out and join us on Wednesday, Sept. 18 for the next edition of Trivia Night. It only costs a dollar per person and you can come as an individual or with two or three others and make up a team. Proceeds from Trivia are donated to the Wounded Warriors Fund.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.Arthurs Day HooleyCome celebrate the birthday of one of Irelands most prestigious sons; Arthur Guinness. The founder of Guinness Beer was born over 250 years ago. We Americans tend to celebrate birthdays of people like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln but the Irish have a slightly different sense as to who is important in their history. Our celebration of Arthur Day will include the Spirit of Ocala Irish Dancers and music by Richard OBecotte who will be playing a vast variety of Irish and American tunes. You will have the pleasure of watching this lively performance of lovely ladies as well as listening to the favorite Irish songs youve come to know and love. Tickets are only $2 each but you are asked to also bring a snack to pass around. If youd like a chance to win a prize, dress in the appropriate attire for the occasion because there will be a contest that evening. Starting at 5:30 p.m. the Hooley; which is the Irish word for party, lasts until 9 p.m. on Friday Sept. 27. This promises to be a wild Irish bash with great entertainment; a wide assortment of snacks and of course, you can bring your favorite libation to enhance your spirits. Ticket sales are limited to just 120 so act fast and see Geri and be a part of this wild Irish fling.From your reporterFor most of us dog owners, our little companions are a part of our family. While biologically classified as animals they are far from that in our eyes. In fact, in some cases we prefer the company of our pets to that of some people we know. Just like with our children, there is a bond that develops between owner and the four legged kids. They give us so much pleasure and laughter but like children, they need special care and protection. In Ocala, like in most of the country, there is a problem with coyotes whose habitat has been infringed on by humans. These members of the canine species dont know pet from wild animal and all they are looking for is a meal. It is up to us humans to try and insure our pets dont become dinner for these wild creatures. Another threat to very small pets is the birds. Hawks; eagles etc. all have the ability to pick up a small animal and take it away. Because of these threats, leaving small pets unattended in the yard or on a tether can be very risky. Many of our residents have now begun walking their dogs on a leash where they can protect them from predators and still allow them to take care of business. My neighbors are now carrying defensive sprays; walking sticks and canes; and other self defense items when taking their dogs out. In most cases just being with your dog will keep him safe but you never know in nature what can happen. Being prepared is always a good idea. We know how hard it is to lose a member of the family; especially a puppy so Im putting these tips out there to help prevent any tragedies. Nature is a beautiful thing but in many cases it is cruel and unforgiving so awareness is essential. Enjoy walking your dog and give him or her and extra ear rub from me, your humble correspondent. You can contact me with comments concerning the Cherrywood section of your Citizen newspaper at urperssec@yahoo.com. Im always glad to hear from you, the reader. Friday, August 30, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, August 30, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Our 100 Days of Summer celebration on Aug. 19 was highlighted right before the dinner with the surprise recognition of our long time resident deejay, Richard Becotte. Jay OHern of the Social Committee; William Mahar, president of the Veterans Club; Eve Houghtaling, chair of the Activities Committee and Geri representing Cherrywood Property Management and its residents were called forward. Once they were in place, Richard was called to join them and presented with a beautiful plaque thanking him for his hundreds of hours of service to this community. Rich plays his songs at many of the functions of the Social and Activities Committees; all of the veterans programs; and many private gatherings; supplying the dance and mood music that are vital to a successful celebration. Monica, Richards wife, joined him at the front of the room to receive the thanks of all gathered and was presented with a dozen red roses. Everyone knows that behind every successful man stands a loving and supporting partner and soul mate; Everyone present wanted Monica to know how much she too is appreciated. Both Monica and Richard received a rousing round of applause from the more than 200 people who had gathered for our Hot Summer Night party. We deeply appreciate Rich and Monica for their contribution to the quality of life in our community. Following the ceremony, guests were called to the dinner table where they were served delicious open faced turkey sandwiches with sweet potato, five bean salad and ice cream for dessert. Our Social Committee volunteers did an outstanding job of getting the more than 240 guests through the line in just under 32 minutes. The task of feeding a crowd as large as this one was requires expertise; coordination and a lot of hard work. Preparations for the evening was done by Marty Duesel; Dave Siegel and Fred OHern while Joannie Siegel; Sandee Spencer; Janice McLeod; Marti Duesel and Dave Siegel did the kitchen work and made up the plates. The presentation for the meals and getting everyone through the lines was handled by Marty Duesel and Janice McLeod. Drinks were served by Mick James; Ken McLeod; Dick Francis and Bill Mahar. Entertainment was provided by Richard Becotte and his lovely wife Monica sold 50/50 tickets. Our Hostess was Geri and she did the thankless job of calling up the many tables filled with hungry guests one at a time.

Set against 17th century Marthas Vineyard, the story of teenage Bethia is an inspiring tale of awakening to a new perspective with the help of a native man. Restless and curious, Bethia thwarts efforts to deny her an education by eavesdropping on her brothers lessons. At the tender age of 12 she meets the native son of a chieftain and they form a secret friendship. Later her minister father, attempting to bring the tribes to Christianity by first educating them, brings Bethias friend into the household, renaming him Caleb and preparing him for Harvard. And, indeed, both the fictional Caleb and his real life counterpart did graduate from Harvard, making him the first Native American to do so. Throughout the novel Bethia braids the Puritan beliefs she tests and reflects on. To that end, one day on the beach Caleb and Bethia are discussing religion, each challenging the others beliefs. Suddenly the scales fall from the girls eyes as she realizes that her own religion could sound as crazy to Caleb as his does to her: It came to me that our story of a burning bush and a parted sea might also seem fabulous to one not raised up knowing it was true. A motherless child, Bethias life is a hard one but her quiet insistence on using the best of whatever is handed to her helps her survive her struggles. Brooks laces her book with well-known New England names like John Winthrop and Thomas Mayhew and Anne Bradstreet. But whereas the facts concerning Caleb have been meticulously researched, the story of Bethia is pure fiction. The title Calebs Crossing is appropriate at least as to the crossing part. For Caleb both physically crosses from his island home to Cambridge and from his Indian world into Bethias. But the story itself is the girls almost exclusively because at best Caleb is a sketchy character. Even so, this is an engrossing read that I recommend.

BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comAn opportunity to save a live, bowling, and line dancing constitute this weeks OTOW Happenings.Life SouthThe Life South Bloodmobile will be at OTOW on Monday, Sept. 2. 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. OK, 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! Are you interested in burning calories, improving your balance, tickling your brain, improving your physical being, and gaining social skills while having fun? And at no cost to you!

Add to this the ability to purchase from many governments securities that are indexed to inflation, and it becomes highly unlikely investors will be caught off guard by anything less than sudden, catastrophic hyperinflation (defined as more than 50% per month) and maybe even not then. While inflation is not the threat it once was, the Fed is not harmless. Bernanke has so expanded the Feds discretionary actions beyond merely controlling the money stock that it has become a gigantic, financial central planner, Hummel writes. No one should have such power. Money was not invented by government. It was the spontaneous creation of people trying to ease exchange in the marketplace. Central banks like the Fed only messed money up, robbing the people while facilitating warfare and welfare spending through irresponsible large-scale government borrowing. Thus the Fed should be deleted.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org).

Friday, August 30, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, August 30, 2013 www.smcitizen.com For my wifes birthday (I am not allowed to mention which one) I surprised her with round trip tickets to her family reunion in upper New York State. Out of courtesy to her, I elected not to include myself in her little vacation. After all, it is her family and that is just the kind of man I am. I must say I was looking forward to a week in the house by myself, where I could be the absolute boss. Nobody to tell me what to do. Nobody to tell me where to go. For a week, I would be the king of my castle; the captain of my ship; the pilot of my spacecraft. Actually, I need more than one week to do all of these things. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage deserves time off and away from Yours Truly. All year long, she works hard and most of the time has her hands full trying to untangle me from one foil after another. Lately, it has developed into a foil-time job. The day finally came for me to take her to the airport and see her off. As I kissed her goodbye, my thoughts roved back to the week that lay before me as a freelance husband. All the way back from the airport I played my Barry Manilow CD. I like Barry Manilow because he cant Smile without Me. Believe me, a smile creased my clock all the way home. One difference between men and women, or maybe I should say husbands and wives, is the notion of cleanliness. Wives have the idea that cleanliness is next to godliness. If true, ours is the godliest house on the planet. Even God must wipe his feet before coming into our home. As a man, I see absolutely no connection between cleanliness and godliness. I do my best thinking, not to mention praying, in the midst of clutter. If godliness is related to happiness, then I am in heaven when I am in the midst of hodgepodge the podgier the better. Along about Friday afternoon I was absolutely in heaven. The house was a complete wreck and I could not have been happier. About this time, an incident developed that brought me to my senses. I was about ready to take a shower when I noticed the soap and shampoo in my shower were gone. I knew reserves are somewhere in our house but for the life of me; I could not put my fingers on any of it. This is by my wifes design. Notwithstanding, and I was standing in my birthday suit, I needed to take a shower. Then a brilliant idea struck me. Since my wife has not been home all week, the shampoo and soap in her shower should be in great supply. Snatching my towel from my shower, I headed for hers. One thing I noticed in my wifes shower was the variety of bottles. Not wearing my glasses, I could not read the labels on any of them. However, I was not here to read bottles, but to take a shower, and so I disregarded the labels. I turned on the shower, adjusted the water temperature and began my shower. I reached for the nearest bottle, which I assumed was shampoo. After dousing my hair with a generous portion, I began scrubbing my head. I noticed, however, no suds. I grabbed another bottle and repeated the procedure with the same results. After using 17 bottles, I finally found one that produced suds. I remember thinking to myself, what does my wife do with all these bottles in her shower that do not do anything? Nevertheless, in a moment I forgot the whole incident, stepped out of her shower and toweled off. I made a cup of coffee and settled into my easy chair to watch a little television. As I sat there, I noticed a strange fragrance. This is the difference between men and women. A man enjoys strange smells. A woman, on the other hand, enjoys fragrant aromas. I smelled a fragrant aroma with a strong tinge of fruit about it. It smelled as if someone had brought me a bowl of mixed of fruit. I knew for a fact, there was no fruit in the house, so this fruity aroma puzzled me. I got up and walked around the house looking for this bowl of fruit. No matter what room I was in, I could smell the fruit. It was the strangest thing I ever experienced. Finally, I went back to my easy chair and cup of coffee not knowing where these fruity fumes were coming from. Some mysteries are tough to solve. Then something hit me right between the eyes. The fruity bouquet was coming from me! I took several healthy sniffs and discovered I smelled like a bowl of fruit. I could not understand this phenomenon. Then I remember the bottles in my wifes shower. I went back to investigate and discovered my wife had bottles of fruity concoctions of every variety. A verse from the Bible came to mind. But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God. (Philippians 4:18 KJV.) The only fragrance worth dwelling on is a life well pleasing to God.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

A reporter for an Israeli newspaper landed a big scoop. Rushing to the phone, he called the editor and said, Hold the back page! A young reporter showed his article to an old pro and asked his opinion. The old pro said, It isnt worth two cents. The young reporter said, I know, but give it to me anyway. A small-town editor ran a contest for the biggest potato in the county. It was a lot of bother, but at the end of the week he had enough potatoes to last him the whole year.Sheep saleJohn called the local newspapers classified section to complain about an ad he had placed. It was obvious the person who took the information had never spent any time on a farm. John said ewes, Pardon? replied the clerk. Ewes. It makes a difference to some people. The ad had read, Sheep for sale: Used.Only in New YorkThe New York newspapers have always competed with each other. Some time ago, a famous actress was hospitalized. Looking for a scoop, the Post sent a lady reporter out to get the story. She was to dress up as a nurse, sneak into the hospital, and interview the actress. When the reporter returned to the office her editor asked, Did you get the story? The lady reporter said, No. I got thrown out by the doctor from the Daily News.

Friday, August 30, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, August 30, 2013 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenWho should run the Federal Reserve System when chairman Ben Bernankes term expires next year: Vice Chair Janet Yellen or former Obama adviser Lawrence Summers? Neither. Who then? No one. The fact is, we need the Federal Reserve like we need a hole in the head. Contrary to folklore, the Fed is not needed to stabilize the economy or to prevent unemployment. As the Fed heads into its second century, we ought to realize that its record is terrible. Even if we dont count the interwar period (which some economists call the new Feds practice round), Americas central bank is a flop. Monetary economists George A. Selgin, William D. Lastrapes, and Lawrence H. White wrote in Has the Fed Been a Failure?: Drawing on a wide range of recent empirical research, we find the following: (1) The Feds full history (1914 to present) has been characterized by more rather than fewer symptoms of monetary and macroeconomic instability than the decades leading to the Feds establishment. (2) While the Feds performance has undoubtedly improved since World War II, even its postwar performance has not clearly surpassed that of its undoubtedly flawed predecessor, the National Banking system, before World War I. The authors support that generalization with details. On inflation: Far from achieving long-run price stability, [the Fed] has allowed the purchasing power of the U.S. dollar, which was hardly different on the eve of the Feds creation from what it had been at the time of the dollars establishment as the official U.S. monetary unit, to fall dramatically by 95 percent. Selgin, Lastrapes, and White also show that the central bank has given us longer recessions and slower recoveries. But without the Fed, who would set interest rates to guide the economy? The first answer is that government policy and Fed manipulations can create the very recessions that the Fed then tries to reverse. If the politicians and their court economists would get over their hubristic belief that they are stewards of the economy, macroeconomic crises would disappear. Besides, the Fed cannot set interest rates, not even its narrow federal-funds rate for overnight interbank loans. At most, it targets that rate by buying and selling government securities, but it doesnt always hit its target. The idea that the Fed can even heavily influence mortgage and other interest rates ignores important facts. First, the Feds operations are small compared to the complex U.S. and world economies. Writes monetary economist Richard Timberlake, Traditional economics properly teaches that many complex market forces countless investment and savings decisions not dependent on monetary factors are essential in determining interest rates. The Fed funds rate that Fed policy can influence through its monopoly over the quantity of money is inconsequential in shaping most short-term and long-term rates in capital markets, unless that moneymaking power subsequently promotes a pervasive price inflation. Second, the Fed cant lower rates through monetary inflation beyond the very short run. Why not? Because lenders will respond by raising their rates to avoid being screwed by price inflation unless the Fed prevents the inflation, as its been doing, by effectively borrowing back the new money from the banks at interest. Moreover, as monetary economist Jeffrey Rogers Hummel points out, Globalization, with the corresponding relaxation of exchange controls in all major countries, allows [investors) easily to flee to Confession is good for the soul, they say, whoever they are. So it's time to confess that, according to recent news events, I once did something cruel and unusual, and it's probably going to make the PETA people mad at me. When I was a young adult, still living with my parents in northeastern New Jersey, we tethered our dog. Lady was a solid black, cocker-spaniel type, as friendly as could be and full of energy. All three of us in the household worked at the time, so Lady would have been alone quite a bit during the day. My dad rigged up a wire in the back yard that ran from the back door landing out to the garage, which was about 60 feet away. We had a rope with attachments at either end, and it was hooked, one end to the wire, the other to her collar. That way she had free run of the back yard, about 20 feet on each side of the wire and all they way from the garage to the back door. There was a roof over the back door landing, and the garage was usually kept partially open so she could go in. There was always water out there. When we were leaving in the morning, all we had to say was Time to go, and she would run for the back door and wait. When we opened the door, she would run out but stop at the rope, which was hooked to the railing on the landing. Once she was hooked up, away she went. When the first one got home, she would go to the back stoop and wait, and when she was unhooked, she would go into the house. There were rules as to where she could go, mostly enforced by my mother. One thing was she was banned from jumping on the bed. My dad didn't really care, but I was the rebel. She had places to hang out, but when Lady came in my room, I'd close the door and she would jump on the bed. My wife, then my girlfriend, had given me a little red furry thing about eight inches long and a couple inches wide, that sat on my bed. Lady used to love playing with it and, when she got tired of that, would lie on the bed and cuddle with the furry toy. If my mom was coming, she knew to jump off the bed and hide under the floor-length bedspread. She got far enough under that her eyes were covered, but what she didn't realize was that her nose would stick out. Hey, she was smart, but not that smart. So I'm listening at a County Commission meeting a couple of weeks ago to a couple of passionate speakers who want the county to ban all tethering, and I'm wondering why. Some of the arguments made no sense, including one that a dog could get angry and attack someone who came near it. Well, would you want that angry dog running loose where it could jump a fence and attack someone? One person spoke of a lady unloading groceries from her car and while she did, her 3-year-old child wandered into the neighbor's yard and was mauled. I'm sorry for the loss of any child, but failure to properly supervise a 3year-old contributed directly to his death. If dogs are tethered improperly, the county already has animal cruelty laws. Enforce them. It's that simple. Kathy Bryant, chairman, put it perfectly: I take care of my animals, and I don't want government telling me how to do that. Agreed. Dont punish good people because of a few bad ones. The results could be worse than what youre seeing now.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK Citizen The opinions expressed in South Marion Citizen editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.Viewpoints depicted in political cartoons, columns or letters do not necessarily represent the opinion of the editorial board.Groups or individuals are invited to express their opinions in letters to the editor and guest columns.Persons wishing to contact the editor should call 8543986.All letters must be signed and include a phone number and community name, including letters sent via e-mail.

The Ocala City Council and the Marion County Commission should follow the Alachua County Commissions lead in updating its sign ordinance to ban human signs. Weve all seen them, the people standing on the sidewalk with signs promoting various businesses, such as we buy gold or car washes, etc. Alachuas ordinance bans any of these signs on the right of way, which includes sidewalks. They must be on private property. The ban includes all human signs, including costumes. Its only within the past few years that these human signs have proliferated our county. Its gotten to a point where you cant go more than a couple of blocks in a business district without seeing one. However, some form of these signs have been around forever. In the old days, some restaurants even had people walking around with their menus on a sign. Now, though, we see so many that in some instances there are sign-carriers sharing a corner. Some have even spread to the median of our highways, where they are a major distraction to the driving public, to say nothing about making the county look junky. Alachua County originally stopped these sign displays some time ago, but someone sued and forced the county to change its policies. Now Alachua has upgraded its ordinance in what it hopes will be compliance with the federal court ruling. Its not only businesses involved. On any Saturday morning, you can see young people promoting a nearby car wash to raise funds for their activities. While no one wants to see these car washes fail, there is a major safety factor here. Have you ever been driving along and seen a 12-year-old appear just off the pavement of the road waving a car wash sign at you? This is a dangerous practice, and moving them back off the right of way wouldnt hurt a bit. Marion County governments should keep an eye on Alachuas efforts, and if they survive legal challenges, our county should adopt the same law, word for word. While this may not get rid of the human signs completely, at least it will push them back off the right of way. So were asking our local governments to give our sidewalks back to the pedestrians. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Human sign ban should be on agenda To some, I guess Im just a cruel person Simple solution: Get rid of the Fed altogether READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE10 Taking responsibilityWhen Picketts Charge at Gettysburg failed on July 3, 1863, Confederate commander Robert E. Lee said it is entirely my fault. The night before the June 6, 1944, D-Day invasion, Allied Commander Dwight Eisenhower wrote that if anything went wrong the next day, the fault is mine and mine alone. When the D-Day invasion succeeded, Ike issued a statement giving all the credit to the men and women who participated in it. When the Dallas Cowboys lost the nail-biter Ice Bowl to the Green Bay Packers on Dec. 31, 1967, Cowboys QB Don Meredith stated on national TV that the loss was all his fault. To this day, retired San Diego Chargers QB Dan Fouts blames their Jan. 10, 1982, Freezer Bowl 27-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on his poor play. These people were the adults in the room, who accept blame when things go wrong. So why cant our national leaders do the same? We have President Obama blaming our economic problems on G.W. Bush, the Benghazi attack on a You-Tube video, the IRS scandal on a couple rogue employees, etc. When youre in charge, you accept responsibility for failures, and do your best to correct them. To play the blame game is childish. Al Shumard Pine Run LETTER TO THE EDITOR class to help ease the emotional process of passing on cherished family possessions. Refreshments will be served.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dealing with a pesky job problem might be time-consuming but necessary. The sooner you get this situation settled, the sooner you can move on to other matters. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Career advancement is favored thanks to your impressive work record. On the personal side, you should soon hear some good news about an ailing family member. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) There might be mixed signals from a certain someone who doesnt seem all that certain about his or her intentions. Best to sort it all out before it becomes more confusing. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Get all the facts about that investment opportunity before you put even one dollar into it. There could be hidden problems that could be costly. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Compromising on a matter you feel strongly about not only ends the impasse, but can be a winwin deal for all. Remember: Scorpios do well with change. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) With all the demands you have to deal with, accepting the help of family and friends could be the wisest course to take at this time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Recent upsetting incidents might have left you with a big gap in your self-assurance. Refill it by spending time with those who know how worthy you really are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A dispute about money needs to be resolved quickly, before it festers into something more serious. Consider asking an impartial colleague to mediate the matter. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A soft approach could be more effective than making a loud demand for the information you need. You might even find yourself with more data than you expected. BORN THIS WEEK: Youre sought out for the wonderful advice youre able to offer to others. And sometimes you even take it yourself.

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 lifethreatening 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 prior training and planning in working 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.

Folks from On Top of the World and Stone Creek took a tour recently. More photos on Page 3. BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the CitizenIt was a sad but a day of celebration on Sunday, Aug. 25, at Joy Lutheran Church when 90-100 members came together to wish Fred and Judi Minster a fond goodbye. Sixteen years ago Fred and Judi moved to this area from Saginaw, Michigan to retire and reside at Spruce Creek Preserve. They joined the Joy congregation when it was in its infancythey were nine months short of being charter members. It did not take this couple long before they became actively engaged in the church activities. Judi, with her background as a Certified Public Accountant and treasurer in a northern church, joined the church staff first as attendance secretary, then financial secretary and later as treasurer. She maintained the treasurer position till this year. In her tenure here at Joy she also volunteered for the financial committee, stewardship committee and the Council. She lent her talents to both the vocal and bell choirs. Fred, soon after joining the church, also joined the church staff as custodian for Swenson Hall, and sexton for the church. His past experience in maintenance in the General Motors Foundry in Michigan proved to be helpful. Fred was well-known among the congregation for his coordination and supervision of the Sound Room in the church. This became a significant area over the years as the demand for more electronics, visual aids, sound and light equipment were required in the worship services and general functioning of the church. Fred was tireless in his efforts to keep the equipment updated and in working order. He trained many volunteers to assist him in this effort. Fred also served on the Worship and Music Committee and sang in the choir. In their free time, Fred and Judi enjoyed square dancing and participated in a group in Spruce Creek. Fred had been a square dance caller in Michigan. So now they plan to retire again back to their home state of Michigan near their many children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The congregation on this Sunday honored Fred and Judi with a pot-luck luncheon. Senior Pastor Edward Holloway, Jr. thanked them for their many years of service which they did with gusto and joy. Pastor Ed gave them a financial tribute from the Council. The Quilters of the church gave them each a quilt. Through tears, Judi thanked the members for this display of gratitude and assured them that it had been a pleasure to work for them. Fred left us with a joke about a rabbit and thanked the members for all their love which they will take with them. PHOTO BY NORMAN HALVORSENFred and Judi Minster, left, share some humor with Pastor Ed Holloway about returning to the snows of the northland. Joy Lutheran says goodbye to couple headed north The summer of led to marriage for John and Mildred Dollie Ryan on Sept. 1, 1951 in Philadelphia. Now living in Oak Run, the couple will celebrate their 62nd wedding anniversary on Sunday. They met while both were working at a Christian summer camp in the Pocono Mountains. Dollie was working in the kitchen and John Ryan had the job of checking in the new campers. Each made a $1 per day on their respective jobs. She lived in the country at Ambler and John lived in Philadelphia. But the romance didnt blossom for a couple of years. Dollie and one of her girlfriends wanted to go New York to see another person they had worked with at summer camp. Needing a ride and not having a car, Dollie called John and asked if he would take them to New York. John jokes about the invite that Dollie was bored one day at work and called him for something to do since she was working as a switchboard operator. John agreed to the New York trip and afterward the two started dating. In June 1951, John went into the Army. Home on leave a couple of months later they were married. John spent two years in the Army including time in Korea. Back in the states John went to work doing maintenance in a large office building the Land Title building for 41 years before retiring. Dollie worked as the activity director for the Philadelphia Protestant Home. They had three sons, who all live in Florida now. After retiring, the couple remained in Philadelphia but would vacation in Florida. Those trips would usually mean a stop in Ocala to see one of Johns coworkers who retired to Oak Run. Once they decided they had enough of snow, cold and traffic, they moved to Oak Run too. Dollie is active in many of the communitys clubs and John enjoys staying at home.
