An Army vet, left, chats with a Navy officer during God and Country Day. The very young enjoyed their day at Townleys celebration. The early-arriving crowd grew rapidly during the four-hour event. BY JIM CLARK EditorThe Marion County Commission appointed a task force to look at the dog tethering issue, but the plan was almost scuttled by the apparent hard line by one of the agencies fighting to ban tethering in the county. Late in the meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 3, Commission Chairman KathyBryant called for appointments and made her own. She then called upon Stan McClain to make his, and was greeted with a long pause and then a statement by McClain: I dont know if Im prepared to do anything. He added that it sounds like theres no room for compromise. McClains hesitation came after talks during the public portion of the meeting by Linda Norman, board member of the Humane Society, and resident John Marinelli, among others. Norman read a platform statement from the Humane Society, saying that the agency would not adopt an animal to anyone who plans to chain their dog as a means of containment. She added that chaining is part of the protocol for dogs kept for fighting. She called for a 24hour ban and said it should be enforceable, and that there should be a six-month period for adjustment. Marinelli commented, I represent tethered dogs in Marion County, those who have no voice. I am opposed to anything less than a 24-hour ban. After McClains statement, Commissioner Carl Zalak agreed, saying, It does sound like theres no room for compromise. Some commissioners felt that the purpose of the task force was to look at the issue and hash it out, coming back to the county with a recommendation. Bruce Fishalow, an executive with the Humane Society, who, along with Norman, ended up on the task force, commented, ObTether panel set up PLEASESEEDOGS, PAGE3 Sheriffs office seeks candy for HalloweenThe Marion County Sheriffs Office Southwest District is making its annual appeal for candy donations for Halloween.

Governor announces major springs improvement projects Wednesday, Governor Rick Scott announced 10 water quality, and water quantity, springs improvement projects. Funding for the spring projects was leveraged from a $10 million investment from the Florida Families First Budget, more than $1 million from Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) funding, and investments from local partners, for a total of nearly $37 million for springs projects. The governor made the announcement at Wekiwa Springs State Park, where he was joined by water management officials, and state and local leaders. The announcement comes on the heels of last weeks commitment of more than $130 million to restore estuaries in South Florida. Scott said, Today, were announcing important steps were taking to protect and restore springs throughout the Sunshine State. Floridas springs are important to animal and plant life, and help support Floridas booming tourism industry. This $10 million investment from the Florida Families First Budget will enable state and local partners to protect the quality and quantity of water that flows from our springs. Our commitment to Florida families means doing our part in supporting these natural treasures.

RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 This project will focus on sediment removal, erosion control, spring bank and riparian restoration of Williford Spring. The Northwest Florida Water Management District will improve water quality and clarity in the spring by removing 200 cubic yards of sediment from the spring pool, restoring native vegetation along the springbank that helps capture run-off and sediment, and constructing areas to capture and treat stormwater to improve water quality before it enters the spring. This will result in a 50-60 percent reduction of sediment and other stormwater pollutants from entering the spring. This restoration project will also help protect the spring for future generations and at the same time improve public access to the spring. Wekiwa Springs Group Orlando Region Approximately $700,000 in state funding will be leveraged for a more than $3.5 million project to benefit Wekiwa Springs to construct a reclaimed water transmission main to expand Apopkas reclaimed water service into a high recharge area for Wekiwa and Rock Spring, which feeds the Wekiva River. Additional Spring Investments Along with investing in projects, the Department set the very first basin management action plan, or restoration plan, for springs in the Santa Fe River watershed in 2012 and has provided $1.4 million to improve the nutrient controls for agricultural practices in the area in addition to the $5.5 million for springs projects within the Suwannee River Water Management District in the Florida Families First budget.

viously it puts me in an awkward situation. Our boarddoes not adopt out any animals that will be tethered. That is absolute policy. Does that mean theres no room for compromise? Theyre not mutually exclusive. The panel needs to be set up with seven people making a recommendation to you all we need to have this panel going. Bryant asked him if he could sit on the task force with an open mind. Fishalow replied, I will negotiate in good faith to make something happen to get these dogs off of tethers. Commissioner Earl Arnett commented, There are people on the panel who will not come in with an open mind. We still need to put a board together. Commissioner David Moore, who was the only commissioner to vote for a public hearing in the first place, said, Were each going to put a person on there, and theyll come back with a recommendation. Bryant reminded the panel members that this is for one specific issue and one issue only. We need to be clear with that. McClain continued his objection, Im just having a hard time Im sorry. Bryant asked Norman to come back to the podium, and the Humane Society representative backed off her hard stance just a little. This panel, I would hope, is going to be an exchange of ideas I let the evidence take me where it took me, let the evidence go where it would take you. Norman and Fishalow were appointed to the task force, as well as Animal Services Department Director Deb Horvath, Sheriffs Lt. Kevin Rowe, Ocala police officer Brandon Sirolli, former candidate Butch Verrando, and Ken Araujo, who trains K9 animals for law enforcement. Earlier in the meeting, Patricia Reed cited studies that she said revealed that the tethering of dogs is not always harmful. The tether is not the problem, but the people. She then said the antitethering movement is being used to eliminate dogs. She said local governments need to focus on enforcing existing laws. Renee Rivard of Tampa, who says she represents a group called the League of Humane Voters, said, Our members support a ban on unattended tethering.

More on Page 4 what can be accomplished when the state invests wisely to support and supplement department and water management district restoration programs, said Department Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. Much more needs to be done, but these projects can pave the way to restoring some of our most iconic springs. Springs that will receive funding for projects include Silver, Wekiwa, Rock, Ichetucknee, Rainbow, Chassahowitzka, Homosassa, Weeki Wachee, Jackson Blue, Williford, and springs along the Santa Fe and Suwannee Rivers and Kings Bay. The Northwest Florida Water Management District is grateful to Governor Scott, the Florida Legislature and Secretary Vinyard for recognizing that the protection of Floridas springs is vital to ensuring a clean and sustainable supply of water for our natural systems and our residents, said Jon Steverson, Executive Director of the Northwest Florida Water Management District. We look forward to an ongoing partnership as we continue to improve water quality and protect water resources across Northwest Florida. We would like to thank the Governor and Legislature for supporting the important springs restoration work within the northern portion of our District, said Robert Beltran, assistant executive director for the Southwest Florida Water Management District. The states funding together with the districts funding commitment will help ensure we continue the important task of restoring our springs. The project dollars demonstrate the states commitment to achieving meaningful springs protection, said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Hans G. Tanzler III. We appreciate the work of Governor Scott and the Legislature to allocate the funds. We also appreciate the opportunity to partner with DEP and local governments to move these projects forward and begin to improve the health of our springs and their ecosystems. We are appreciative to Governor Scott and the Legislature for their leadership appropriating springs funding which has successfully leveraged local funds resulting in profound and lasting water quantity and quality protection for our springs, said District Governing Board Chair Donald Quincey, Jr. We are also grateful to our local partners for their funding participation that helped to bring funding to improve our springs. Silv er Sp rin gs O cala Nearly $2 million of state funding will be leveraged to fund a $12 million water quality improvement project that will result in an estimated reduction of 663,000 pounds of nitrogen pollution per year (the equivalent of about 442,000 bags of common fertilizer) going into Silver Springs. These reductions will be achieved by upgrading the City of Ocala Wastewater Facility #2, located near Silver Springs, to advanced treatment, significantly improving the quality of the effluent discharge of the facility. Another approximated $1.5 million in state funding will be directed to Phase II of a more than $8 million water quality improvement and water quantity project that will relocate a wastewater discharge from the Marion County Utilities Silver Springs Shores facility, which is located near Silver Springs, and redirect it for beneficial reuse at area golf courses, further away from the spring. The relocation of the discharge will eliminate a nutrient source near the head of the spring, and result in an estimated reduction of more than 40,000 pounds of nitrogen entering the aquifer per year. It will also result in reduced water consumption at area golf courses and improve the flow of Silver Springs. Ichetucknee Springs Lake City Nearly $4 million in state funding will be invested to leverage $4.6 million water quality improvement project that will improve the treatment of wastewater currently routed to a sprayfield (south of Lake City) being used for disposal and treatment by the City of Lake Citys wastewater treatment facility. This will result in beneficial recharge to the aquifer with higher quality water. It is estimated that this project will achieve a nitrogen reduction of 85 percent, or an estimated reduction of 77,000 pounds of nitrogen per year from going into the aquifer feeding the Ichetucknee Springs System. Kin gs B ayCrystal Riv er Another investment of nearly $500,000 will be leveraged for a nearly $1 million living shoreline project to benefit Kings Bay in Hunters Cove. This project will establish emergent vegetation and restore submerged grasses providing for a 15 percent reduction of nitrogen and 42 percent of phosphorus pollution. In addition, a Three Sisters shoreline stabilization project will also be constructed to prevent further sedimentation from the shoreline and surrounding areas into the springs. An additional $500,000 in state funding will be leverages for a $2 million project that will connect several plants, and upgrade waste water infrastructure, to tie into the municipal waste water system that will result in an estimated load reduction of 6,272 pounds of nitrogen per year. This project will generate approximately 90,000 gallons per day of reclaimed water that will be used by an area golf course, reducing their consumptive use and groundwater withdrawals. R ain bow, Kin gs B ay H omosassa, Chassahow itz ka, Weeki Wachee Sp rin gs G roup T he Sp rin gs Coast This estimated $875,000 water quality improvement and water quantity project will receive $375,000 in state funding. This project is a cost-share initiative to work with area farmers to implement agricultural best management practices (BMPs) within the Springs Coast region that will reduce groundwater withdrawal quantities and/or nutrient loading to the Upper Floridan Aquifer system, ultimately benefiting the springs systems. Agricultural operations in the Springs Coast region include citrus groves, row crops, blueberries, grains, field and container nurseries, and animal operations (cow/calf, equine, poultry).

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20 ) You might be in line for that job change you applied for. But be advised that you could be called on to defend your qualifications against supporters of other applicants. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20 ) Creating a new approach to an old idea is one way to get beyond that workplace impasse. No such problems in your personal life, where things continue to flow smoothly. CA N CER (June 21 to July 22) Be more forthcoming about your feelings concerning a proposed change either in your workplace or in your personal life. Your opinions are valuable. Dont keep them hidden. L EO (July 23 to Aug 22) A changing situation in your life needs more patience than you appear to be willing to offer.

Harrison The silent wife of the title is Jodi Brett, a contented soul. At forty-five Jodi still sees herself as a young woman. She does not have her eye on the future but lives very much in the moment. She assumes, without having thought about it, that things will go on indefinitely in their imperfect yet entirely acceptable way. For that reason shes seen little reason to marry Todd Gilbert, her significant other of 20 years. Why fix something thats not broken, shed argue. Granted, Todds a cheater but they have a gorgeous Chicago condo, expensive furniture and fast cars. So its not hard to look the other way at Todds peccadillos. Alas, poor deluded Jodi, the enabler, the pamperer, and kitchen diva who nightly cooks up fantastic meals for the man in her life is treading on quicksand. A part-time psychotherapist who sees a few clients in her luxurious condo, Jodi feels that shes a complement to Todd, a professional renovator. Their life together is both tidy and tranquil. But now Todds taken his infidelity to a new unacceptable level. His affair with the 20-something daughter of his best friend Dean at first lifted him out of his midlife depression. Unfortunately, young Natasha gets pregnant and demands marriage. Secretly, Todd has always wanted an heir, something not in the cards with Jodi. So when he tells her that hes leaving her, Jodi decides to do whatever it takes to get him back. The narration alternates between Her and Him. Todd mostly makes excuses to justify his actions whereas Jodis knowledge of human behavior shows her as patient and self-possessed. Despite comparisons to last years blockbuster novel Gone Girl, theres really little comparison between the two. Both do have the same her/his viewpoints and endings that have divided readers. But Silent lacks the intense suspense that haunted the pages of Gone Girl until the end. Sadly, the author of this book died before its publication. But according to her husband she did live to see some early rave reviews. A mesmerizing read. A mesmerizing story of infidelity Bookmark Pat Wellington BY CAROLYN TEN BROECK Williston PioneerSometimes ideas that start out as personal goals mushroom into bigger ideas that can benefit a community. Thats what happened when Williston native and Rotarian Justin Head decided he wanted to run a 5K race. About four months ago, Head set a goal, downloaded an iPhone app called Couch to 5K (C25K) and began an eight week program that, if completed, would have him physically ready to compete. Those 30-minute, three times a week, workouts paid off and sure enough by the end of the eight weeks he was running 3.1 miles and ready to compete. The only problem? There wasnt a 5K race around. Shortly after that, during a Williston Rotary Club meeting, members were brainstorming ideas to grow the membership and promote the upcoming Peanut Festival. Thats when Head and fellow Rotarian Chris Cowart threw out the idea of a 5K race to coincide with the annual Williston event. The Purple Pinkie Peanut Run will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 5 right before the Peanut Festival kicks off. Pre-registration is under way and will continue through Sept. 20. After that date runners will still be able to race, but there is no guarantee of a commemorative T-shirt. This will be something positive for the community, Head said, and some proceeds from the race will go toward Rotary Internationals Purple Pinkie Program that is dedicated to the eradication of polio in the three countries in the world where it exists. Other proceeds will help with our education projects including The Dictionary Project and The Black Stallion, a literacy program for fourth graders. Head pointed out this is no a highly competitive event. Its about having fun, he said. Four prizes will be given at the end of the race: fastest male, fastest female, oldest entrant and youngest entrant. Entry fee is $25 through Sept. 20 and $30 after. The race will begin at the north end of Heritage Park, Head said, and aid and water stations will be available. Register at www.active.com Not up to the 3.1 miles? You can also walk/run in the one mile event, he said. Our goal is 100 runners, Head said. He can already count on onehimself.

One of these new people, David Unverfehrt, plays the dual roles of Hickory, the farm hand, and the Tin Man. David is from southern Illinois and is semi-retired from a farming and a varied business career. In February he visited Oak Run, and wandered into the Palm Grove where some ladies from the Performing Arts Company asked him if he sings. He said yes, and that was the start of his interest in being in theatre. (Thank you PACOR ladies!) He recently bought a home here, and immediately joined our theatre group, just in time to audition for The Wizard of Oz. Being unfamiliar with the music for the Tin Man solo, he asked if he could sing songs that he performs in church. Well,he got a standing ovation from all the folks also there to audition. When you see him perform, youll agree weve been blessed by another wonderfully talented person. In addition to singing, and now acting, David enjoys flying (he has a private pilots license), motorcycle riding, traveling and making new friends. Some of the people new to being on stage have the dual roles of Munchkins and Ozians (citizens of Emerald City). Some of these include Billie Gabel, who got her feet wet behind the scenes in the spring play doing sound effects and, Sara Schmitt who has always been behind the scenes working on costumes and being an usher (shes also working on costumes). Others, who are new to PACOR and jumped at the chance to be a Munchkin / Ozian include Flo Feltman, Sue Dubin, and Howard Spies. Actually, Howard also has a third role, the general of the Wicked Witchs army. Oct. 11, 12 and 13 are the show dates, so get your tickets now! The next ticket sale dates are Monday, Sept. 9, at The Palm Grove from 10:15 to 10:45 a.m. and Saturday, Sept.14, at the Orchid Club from 8 to 10 a.m. during the Donut Drop In.

Friday, September 6, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 6, 2013 Dont start a warMany political leaders in America believe that it is our responsibility to attack Syria because their leader used poison gas on his own people. President Bashar Assad must have felt that it was necessary to prove to the world that a strong leader could do anything in his power to prove his position in the world, right or wrong. Russia is supporting this ruthless leader of Syria with military weapons and war ships in the Mediterranean sea that would attack all that interferes with Assad. The support from Russia and China of this ruthless leader makes it impossible for the United Nations to act in the defense of the people of Syria. Why is it Americas responsibility to be the sole protector of the world by imposing our will on any country that commits atrocities against its own people. We have been involved in many wars that were none of our business and not in our countrys best interest even with millions of people being slaughtered around the world. This may sound cold hearted but we cant control the world nor its leaders. Think back and try to come up with a legitimate reason to protect Americas interest that we invaded North Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. None of these wars were necessary. Every president that involved our country in these wars did so for political reasons only to show that they were strong leaders and could convince our Congress that these wars were necessary. The last legitimate war that America was involved in was World War 11 after we were attacked first. I feel that the United Nations has lost all credibility by allowing these local wars to escalate to the point where millions of people were being slaughtered. Please Mr. President, remain strong, and try to influence our Congress that we should not start World War III. Jerry Segovis OcalaIts our faultLife is not fair. And it never will be unless we sit down and figure out why. Then figure out how to use common sense to fix it. Stupidity will not do the job. How many times have you heard that phrase? Whose fault is that? Gods? Ours? I vote for ours. We never seem to take note when someone wants to use us for their nefarious purposes. How does the scenario unfold? Let us try to do a little unfolding, and see what we find, this time around. There are two sides to every coin, and problem. There are two sides to this problem, with a bunch of us, the middle class, being the collateral ,caught in the middle, between these two offending groups. Marx and Lenin identified the one half of the coin, the useful idiots, the half they needed to manipulate, to perpetrate their holocaust. However, they neglected the other side of the coin. Who were they in this equation? They were, as are all those who occupy their shoes, the power lusters. Every generation produces these two groups. Spotting the new crop of power lusters would help. We must stop them by just saying no. The useful idiots know not what they do, and are duped over and over. It would be helpful to educate the idiots, and end the cycle of holocausts, and unfairness. The 64 thousand dollar question is: How? The power lusters know how to manipulate useful idiots. Promise them anything, but give them a free phone. Then take them to the gulag, concentration camp, internment areas, etc. Evil is superb at dressing itself to look friendly, helpful, nirvana producers. MesOnce more, last week, we had a murder-suicide in Marion County. And once again, it was a couple in their advanced years. The deaths occurred in a subdivision near The Villages, at the southern end of the county. A man had checked his wife out of her home in assisted living, then a couple of days later apparently shot and killed her with a shotgun before turning the weapon on himself. Its not the first time in the past year that we have seen desperate people in some sort of situation take this way out. The Alliance for Aging published some strategies to prevent senior suicide: Optimize function and reduce isolation, Restrict access to lethal means, and Diagnose and prevent depression. These strategies help combat three of the most common factors that place older adults at higher risk for suicide. Research has found that older adults who live alone are more likely to commit suicide, particularly if they are divorced or widowed. People considering suicide often withdraw from their normal social engagements, but staying active can improve moods and decrease the likelihood of depression. Exercising, spending time with loved ones, developing a new hobby, and joining a support group are good ways for older people to avoid depression and suicide. Family and community members can serve as strong support systems and encourage behavior that keeps them active and connected. Easy access to handguns can also place seniors at a greater risk of suicide. Statistics show that older people with handguns in their households are more than twice as likely to commit suicide as those without access to firearms. Lethal weapons are the most common method of suicide by the elderly and result in a very high completion rate. By being aware of handguns in the home of an older loved one, family and friends may be able to prevent an imminent suicide. It is also critical to recognize the signs of depression in the elderly. Sixty to 75 percent of suicide victims age 75 and older have diagnosable clinical depression. Older adults may experience slightly different symptoms than younger depression patientstypical symptoms include anxiety, fatigue, loss of interest in hobbies, isolation, unexplained weight loss, and suicidal thoughts. In the most recent Marion County case, as in others, the couple lived alone, and the wife was in assisted living, leaving the husband to fend for himself. This is where neighbors and friends can come in. Theres a natural tendency to shy away from people who have just lost a loved one, in some cases just because people dont know what to say. But making sure that the lonely person is not left in isolation is a key component to getting that person back into the world, taking care of themselves to a point where they look forward to each day. So if youre living alone, seek out others so you can join in some activities. Most of the people around here live in relatively active communities with plenty of things to do if theyll only seek them out. And if you know of someone who is alone and not doing anything, try to visit them and get them into the mix in their neighborhoods. It can be beneficial for both of you. I just hate seeing these stories come across the computer, the stories of people who take their own lives because to them, there is no other way out. Lets all take steps to make sure that this doesnt happen to someone we know.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Have you ever pulled an all-nighter cramming for a test, had a neighbors barking dog keep you up all night or pulled a double shift at work? Each of us has likely encountered situations similar to these and found it difficult to stay awake the next day. Getting behind the wheel of a vehicle while fatigued and drowsy can have dangerous, and sometimes deadly, consequences. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, each year drowsy driving crashes result in at least 1,500 deaths and 71,000 injuries. Similar to drunk and drugged driving, sleep loss or fatigue slows reaction time, makes drivers less attentive and impairs decision-making skills. The Florida Legislature designated the first week of September each year as Drowsy Driving Prevention Week to educate the public on the dangers of driving while drowsy and to honor the memory of 8-year-old Ronshay Dugans, whoy was killed in 2008 when her school bus was hit by a driver who fell asleep. A drowsy driver can be as dangerous on the road as a drunk driver, said Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Director Julie L. Jones. Before getting behind the wheel of a vehicle, be sure you are well rested or have another licensed driver with you who can take over if you become too tired to drive safely. Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad said, Keeping motorists safe on our roadways is our top priority at the Florida Department of Transportation. We encourage drivers to be fully alert and never drive drowsy. The following warning signs indicate that its time to stop driving and find a safe place to pull over and address your condition: Difficulty focusing, frequent blinking and/or heavy eyelids Difficulty keeping reveries or daydreams at bay Trouble keeping your head up Drifting from your lane, swerving, tailgating and/or hitting rumble strips Inability to remember the last few miles driven Missing exits or traffic signs Yawning repeatedly Feeling restless, irritable, or aggressive. Heres what you can do to prevent a fall-asleep crash: Get a good nights sleep before you hit the road. Youll want to be alert for the drive, so be sure to get adequate sleep (7 to 9 hours) the night before you go. Dont be too rushed to arrive at your destination. Many drivers try to maximize their trip by driving at night or without stopping for breaks. Its better to allow the time to drive alert and arrive alive. Use the buddy system. Just as you should not swim alone, avoid driving alone for long distances. A buddy who remains awake for the journey can take a turn behind the wheel and help see the signs of fatigue. Take a break every 100 miles or 2 hours. Do something to refresh yourself like getting a snack, switching drivers, or going for a run. Take a napfind a safe place to take a 15 to 20minute nap, if you think you might fall asleep. Be cautious about excessive drowsiness after waking up. Avoid alcohol and medications that cause drowsiness as a side-effect. Avoid driving when you would normally be asleep. Consume caffeine. The equivalent of two cups of coffee can increase alertness for several hours. For more information, visit http://drowsydriving.org.

Richard Cote was laid to rest in Bushnell on Friday, Aug. 30. Richard was honored by family and friends that gathered to hear of his accomplishments and how much he was loved and admired. On Sept. 13 at 10 a.m., services for Robert Hall will be held at Roberts Funeral Home. Following the service, he too will be taken to Bushnell for burial with full military honors. The Veterans Club would like to express their deepest sympathies to the families of these two men who served their country honorably and courageously. We are fortunate indeed to live in a country that produces such individuals who are willing to serve; sacrifice and devote their lives to the preservation of freedom. Both Richard and Robert will be missed. On a brighter note; this coming week my son and his fianc will be visiting from California. They will be occupying most of my time as I show them around the town and share the beauty of central Florida with them. For that reason, next week my duties have been taken over by Geri in the office and our ace photographer Holly Bragdon. Please contact them with any articles or ideas that you might have for this column in your Citizen Newspaper. I thank Geri and Holly for allowing me a week off.

Friday, September 6, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, September 6, 2013 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING siahs, come to save the idiots from all their woes .Trust Us, they say. How many dead bodies is enough?/ Have you ever viewed pictures of the body piles from recent Holocausts? Seems like we have had more than enough already, I think. What is your limit? How many more millions will it take before we get it? Does every generation have to go through a holocaust, with its attendant barbarism, ferocity, bloodshed, torture, and wanton cruelty? When society becomes depraved, God does not listen. God said bring me 50 righteous men, and I will save Sodom and Gomorrah. Anyone got 50 righteous men in their pocket? Bring them on. Could God be paying attention, this time, and giving a gentle nudge to the 49 percent in Egypt? Perhaps we can expect a miracle in America as well, if we stand up, and speak out. The History Channel has a series titled: The Men Who Built America. They did build, but they also power lusted as well. They did not need all the money they made. However, instead of paying a living wage to their workers, they lusted after the title of richest person in America, or the world. Then they endowed all sorts of things with their name on it, but not one extra cent for their workers. Are these people intelligent, or greedy, vain, or just plain power hungry? Power lusters are one side of the coin. The useful idiots are the other side of the coin, and problem. They fail to learn to act in their own best interest, but, rather leave it to others to fix things, and you see how that turns out. Do we want another holocaust? Our representatives do not represent we the people. Hedge funds, and derivatives are worthless pieces of paper, that are traded like worthwhile investments. Power lusters manipulated these into law, by using their lackeys in Congress. We need to get rid of them, the laws and the lackeys. Get us out of the UN, the IRS must go, repeal the Federal Reserve act of 1913, and the EPA. Get rid of the Federal Department of education, we can raise our children. Outlaw lobbying for laws favorable to power lusters. With these issues gone it will help level the playing field. Because something is legal does not mean it is just, moral, or right. Useful idiots have their own problems. If you believe in God, you know he does not help the sinful. Have we turned our back on God? Let me count the ways. Who in this population believes in sin? In our anything goes society. Some things are immoral, whether we like it or not. If I have to look at one more female shaking her body, boobs, or butt in my face on TV, or, a bloody or mutilated body, or jaded sports matches, or, illiterate macho dudes butchering the English language, or idiot news, I may barf, This is considered entertainment, I click, a lot. In fact, that is what I do most and best. Any awards given for clicking? Is this fare making God happy? I am certain God is ready to rush out, and help us. We deny God exists, and we act accordingly. Who is available to save us from ourselves? I am putting my bet on Benjamin Carson, and Rand Paul in 2016. When society becomes depraved, God does not listen. Do not hold your breath. While driving this week, I saw something that opened up a new perspective about useful idiots. There were six huge trash bags piled by the road. I thought they were dumped, but a short distance further on, someone was picking up more trash. How many decades has it been since the plea not to litter began? If people cannot grasp an issue so basic, so simple, so common sense, so civil, so mannerly, how can they be trusted with more pressing issues, such as voting, attending college, holding political office, run companies? These people are deciding my lifestyle, and yours. Are you happy with that arrangement? The useful idiots are not choir persons. They need to mend their lives, if God is to heed our pleas for help. We all have work to do. Knowledgeable voting would help. Does anyone still believe we will have peace, and fairness without both sides of the coin putting their houses in order? Or, will Useful Idiots rely once again on power lusters to put our national house in order. I do not want to rely yet again on Power Lusters. The price is too high. Unless we decide to do some major house cleaning, now, we may be headed for yet another holocaust, and another dark ages in history. Just like Germany, Russia, Vietnam, China, Cuba, North Korea. We can no longer afford to keep our heads in the sand. Will we go down in history at the smartest generation, or the dumbest generation? Will we learn, in time, what is in our best interest? I hope so? Nothing good will happen if we sit on our hands, or fail to speak out. America is mankinds best hope. This is the message in Shakedown Socialism by Oleg Atbasian a Russian who immigrated to this country in 1990. He witnessed socialism in action, and discovered its flaws. He is now questioning what is happening in America, and where he might possibly go next. America is the beacon for all who wish to be free, if we allow it to go progressive there is no where for freedom seeking refugees of the entire world. to go. Help fix it, please. America is a keeper.

Of course there will be a lot of Irish songs but there will also be a lot of the traditional tunes that everyone loves. To add a bit more color to the evening, everyone is asked to join in the spirit of Arthurs Day by wearing traditional Celtic costumes. There will be prizes for best outfits so dont miss out on this fun part of the evening. Be a wee little leprechaun or a fine old Irish match maker; or anything in between just for the fun of it. All this excitement starts at 5:30 in the clubhouse so plan to come out and enjoy a rousing evening of fun with your neighbors and friends. Oh, and if youd like, feel free to bring the beverage of your choice to this wild Hooley. Itll be a grand shindig. TriviaSpeaking of Trivia questions, dont forget that Trivia will be coming up on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 7 p.m. in the clubhouse. This month Fred OHern will be back with plenty of interesting questions designed to challenge the knowledge of our contestants. This month subjects include 10 questions from the August and September monthly Chirp magazine. You can guarantee yourself at least a score of 10 by reading those two issues. The cost is only a dollar per person and the winning team gets a small financial prize plus the most important part; bragging rights for a whole month. Proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Project and weve donated over $350 to that worthy project already. Bring some friends and form a team or show up alone and youll be put on a team. Its a fun night where everybody brings a snack; a beverage and their sense of humor. In addition to some fun competition, you can keep your mind sharp too. Come join us for a great time.

In just a few short weeks you can be on the dance floor with others enjoying the music at all of our events. These classes are free and dont require registration. Just come and dance and enjoy yourself. Theres lots of room in our clubhouse so dont be afraid to invite a friend to come with you to learn from an expert instructor in a beautiful atmosphere. Boat TripEnjoy a musical tour down the river with Singing River Tours on Tuesday, Sept. 17 and a lunch to follow at the Blue Gator. This outing is sponsored by your Veterans Club of Cherrywood. Because of limited parking in Dunnellon, we will car pool from the clubhouse starting at 9 in the morning.

Friday, September 6, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, September 6, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Rebuttal to column After reading the Aug. 30 commentary written by editor Jim Clark, in which he described the County Commission meeting that he had attended regarding the continuous tethering of dogs, I get the impression that he really didnt get the message. He gave a lengthy description of how he and his family treated the family dog when he was a young man. Before going out, the dog was tethered and water and shelter was provided. When the family came home the dog came in and shared the house including the bed with him, contrary to his mothers wishes. I find it difficult to understand that with all of the folks that spoke at the meeting describing the deplorable conditions under which some of these dogs exist that he takes the position that he has. Firstly, he is completely wrong in what he wrote in which he said that what was being asked for was that all tethering should be banned. He totally ignored the word continuously, because that is the issue. As one of the speakers at that meeting, I recounted a story told to me by a resident of Marion Oaks about a neighbor who had tethered his dog when it was about 6 months old and had never been taken off the tether for several years. When I went to look at the dog, it was extremely aggressive when I came near. There was a water bowl with green and slimy looking water outside and my assumption is that the water is filled when it rains. The tether was long enough to allow the dog to get into a porch with a broken door that gave it about 2 feet of shelter. Under existing laws the dog was totally legal since it had shelter and water. Since it was alive, it must be assumed that it was being fed although it looked scrawny. I was appalled at his comments about a child that had been mauled and killed by a tethered dog when the child wandered into a neighbors yard and he blamed the mother for neglect. There are other cases of children being killed and maimed by tethered dogs. He doesnt seem to understand that dogs are territorial and when their lifetime territory consists of a small area such as tethering offers, they might defend that territory especially if they dont have much human contact. In his commentary he mentioned the remark by Commission Chairperson Kathy Bryant in which she said, I take care of my animals and I dont want government to tell me how to do that. LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE11 With the Labor Day weekend, summer has officially come to an end, but we still have one more celebration of the 100 Days of Summer festivals here at Cherrywood.

Teams were organized and a committee established to make recommendations for the season ending bowling banquet.

Friday, September 6, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, September 6, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I would say to Commissioner Bryant, It would behoove you to be aware that government is already doing that since you are required by law to get rabies shots for your dog every three years, you are required to provide food, shelter and water for your dog, you are required to leash your dog when walking, and you must register and license your dog. These are laws for the benefit of the animals and people. For the commission to formulate an ordinance to ban continuous tethering is not encroaching on anyones rights but to show compassion and care for an animal when it is not given that care by an owner. It would give animal control officers the ability to make owners aware of their responsibilities. Fred Peters OcalaEditors note: In this weeks meeting, speakers said they would settle for nothing less than a 24-hour, 7-day ban.User names and passwordsWe are seniors and fed up! Have you tried to get to your bank, telephone, cell, credit cards or any of your utilities accounts lately? Never in my life did I ever think I would have to go through so many hoops just to get to know how much I owe these people or if they have received my payment and what if any is my balance. They first con you in with go paperless and go on line, its fast, it saves trees etc. Well, guess what, it does not save me time, after spending over half an hour going through all their questions about my dog, cat, car, spouse, mother and any other persons I might have come in contact with, in all my years here on earth asking for user names, passwords and secret answers for which I dont even remember after finishing their requests and I have them written down, when I try to go back in to check on the information that I want and need, the system tells me Im locked out because I tried and messed up too much. Well Im fed up with the whole thing and will now refuse all these and do what Ive done in the pass and call them on the phone and then will have to go through all of it again with someone from another world who doesnt speak or understand English and guess what, Ill hang up! I have tried and most times have failed to get a company that deals solely in the USA, what is going on here, why are we letting all of our resources be sourced out to other countries, when we have people here who dont have jobs? People, please unite and let companies that you deal with know that if they dont do all of their business here in the U.S. youll go elsewhere, if we start letting companies know that we are fed up with this kind of treatment maybe just maybe theyll listen and this will not only help our economy but provide much needed jobs and save our tax dollars that support government programs to help those with no jobs. J & N Poirier, OcalaBipartisan cooperationNo one wants business as usual if changes to government agencies can make government more efficient. But the way to make lasting change happen is with bipartisan cooperation. While Congress is grounded by partisan squabbling and inaction, our country suffers. These members of Congress are not job creators, as they would like us to believe, but job curtailers in the government sector. Perhaps if sequestration had begun with cuts to the salaries of members of Congress, it would have resulted in a different outcome. As a country we are bludgeoning ourselves to death.

Friday, September 6, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, September 6, 2013 www.smcitizen.com It was my pleasure to take my first trip to California. I heard many rumors about California and particularly the people there. Overall, my trip was a blessing and the people I met were truly wonderful. I did, however, have an illusion of California burst. You know how it is, you hear a lot about something or someone and much of what you hear you later find out is not true. One of the first things I discovered when I got to California was that they are not as progressive as I was led to believe. Everybody thinks California is way ahead of the rest of the country. I found it not to be so. Coming to California from Florida I discovered California is at least three hours behind Florida. This came as a shock to me. I could not believe people in Florida were ahead of people in California in anything. Truth cannot be denied when faced boldly. Also, I heard interesting rumors about the LA Freeway. Believe me, it is really nothing to boast about. The speed limit sign along the freeway said 65 mph. I guess that represents some of the comedy Hollywood is known for. Driving on the freeway, when I was moving, I almost hit 15 mph. For a state so concerned about global warming, they allow their cars to sit on the freeway doing nothing but blowing exhaust into the sky. In the state of Florida, an old geezer will not get in his car unless he can hit 70 mph, along with other things. I must admit those California people on the LA Freeway were very friendly indeed and much to my surprise, quite religious. All of them were greeting me in a very husky voice and then pointing me toward heaven. They actually were encouraging me to go to heaven. Of course, in all the anxiety of the LA Freeway, they got their fingers mixed up and instead of using the index finger, used another finger. That is beside the point. The important thing is they wanted me to go to heaven. Of course, as I think of it now, maybe they wanted me to go to heaven at that moment! During my visit, friends took me to several Mexican restaurants. For the first time in my life, I had what is called a taco. How they come up with these names I will never know. An interesting thing about a taco is that whoever prepares it, does not actually prepare it. When my taco came, it was all over my plate. There were little piles of this ingredient and that ingredient and then something folded up on my plate, which was the taco shell. What I was supposed to do was Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder I wish we all could be California foils PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE13 In 1978, Congress passed legislation proclaiming the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day. The days purpose is to honor grandparents, to give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their childrens children, and to help children become aware of strength, information, and guidance older people can offer. Wandering through Pun Alley we run into some funny stories that go along with being grandparents and make us glad we can turn the little darlins back to their parents after a day or two.Smart youngsterTwo young boys were spending the night at their grandparents the week before Christmas. At bedtime, the two boys knelt beside their beds to say their prayers when the youngest one began praying at the top of his lungs. I pray for a new bicycle! I pray for a new iPAD! His older brother leaned over and nudged the younger brother and said, Why are you shouting your prayers? God isnt deaf. To which the little brother replied, No, but Grandma is.Foolproof signWhen Toms grandson asked how old he was, Tom teasingly replied, Im not sure. Look in your underwear, Grandpa, the grandson advised, Mine says Im 4 to 6.Retardment communityOne child wrote: Grandma and Grandpa used to live in a big house but they moved to Florida. Now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look like grass. They ride around on their bicycles and wear name tags because they dont know who they are anymore. They go to a building called a wreck center, but they must have fixed it because it is okay now. There is a swimming pool too, but all they do is jump up and down in it with hats on. At their gate, there is a doll house with a man sitting in it. He watches all day so nobody can escape. Sometimes they sneak out, and go cruising in their golf carts. Nobody there cooks, they just eat out. And they eat the same thing every night early birds. Some of them bring food to the wrecked center for pot luck. My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday, too.Grannys homeWhen the driver stopped the school bus to pick up Chris for preschool, she noticed an older woman hugging him as he left the house. Is that your grandmother? she asked. Yes, Chris said. Shes come to visit us. How nice, the driver said. Where does she live? At the airport, Chris replied. Whenever we want her, we just go out there and get her.Would-be boastsTwo little boys were talking. One little boy turned to the other boy and said, My grandfather has a wooden leg. The other little boy replied, So what? My grandma has a cedar chest.Hard waterAll of his life, Michigan native Len had heard stories of an amazing family tradition. It seems that his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather had all been able to walk on water on their 21st birthday. On that day, they walked across the lake to the boat club for their first legal drink. So, when Lens 21st birthday came around, he and his friend, Corky, took a boat out to the middle of the lake. Len stepped out of the boat and nearly drowned. Corky just managed to pull him to safety. Furious and confused, Len went to see his grandmother. Grandma, its my 21st birthday, so why cant I walk across the lake like my father, his father and his father before him? Granny looked Len straight in the eyes and said, Because your father, grandfather and great-grandfather were born in January. You were born in July.Bright futureA little old lady was on a park bench in the Bronx. A neighbor admired her two little grandchildren and asked how old they were. The little old lady said, The lawyer is four and the doctor is six.Dj vu all over againThe daughter said, I really appreciate you and Dad watching my kids today, Mom. Later, Grandma said, Im really worn out. I remember being exhausted when our kids were babies. Now, with grandkids, Im exhausted all over again! Grandpa replied, Its to be expected. Why do you think they call folks our age re-tired? To all grandparents, have a chuckle on your day Pun Alley Dick Frank Darlene Weesner, author/artist/educator and perhaps Marion Countys most passionate environmentalist, will headline the next Friday Forum on Sept. 13 with an examination of the Water Spine of Florida and the looming water wars with neighboring states as the largest network of freshwater springs in the world faces destruction. Few individuals are more knowledgeable about Marion Countys past or more concerned about its future. The chapter called Where oh where will the sinkholes sink? in Weesners history of Marion County titled We might we did and we could is invaluable.

food and freedom in abundance, each according to its kind, as nature intended. May we all swim, boat and splash in joy on earths waterways. May our drinking water be pure and sweet free of pesticides and phosphates and may our beautiful springs here in Florida remain untouched and natural treasures. I also offer to our world protection to the creatures that live on our planet. May they be safeguarded from poachers who covet their fur, tusks or other body parts. May they not be hunted to extinction so that our grandchildren only know these creatures from pictures in a book. May the lion roar and the sea turtles find their way to the ocean. May humans never disturb the balance of nature, overfish our seas or kill animals for trophy. In Jewish tradition, we are partners with God in creation. We did not create the world, but we are not to destroy it either. I offer the present of conservation as my next gift. Let us be resourceful in our use of natural gas, oil, coal and wood. Let us make our homes and businesses energy efficient so that we do not waste our natural resources. Let us create new sources of energy without depleting those we already have. My last gift is, unfortunately, the most elusive, that is, peace. When nations can put away their differences and political agendas and take out the things that we all aspire to, good health care and education for our children, decent wages and freedom of religion, assembly and speech, then we will all be on the road to peace. Without international cooperation, we are doomed to the petty rivalries and feuds that have plagued us since one caveman decided that the grass was greener on the other side of the cave and that his neighbors possessions were up for grabs. Let us remember that all humans are created in the image of God and that we need to treat all with respect. As we approach the New Year of 5774, let us blow out all the candles on the earths cake and start doing some of the resolutions and promises we will make as we pray for salvation in the New Year. If each of us could do even a small act to support the gifts I have proposed for our earth, Im sure the Creator would smile and the whole world would be filled with love. L shanah tovah! Happy New Year(Rosh Hashanah began on Sept. 4 at sundown.) Friday, September 6, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, September 6, 2013 www.smcitizen.com build my own taco. Never having done such a thing in my life I covertly glanced around to see how my friends were building their taco. I tried to do the same. I got all of the ingredients on my taco shell, rolled it up, folded it and then looked around to see what I was supposed to do next. Is this finger food? Should I be using a fork or a spoon? I noticed everybody at the table picked up their taco as though it was finger food or maybe a sandwich. Actually, I am not sure what a taco really is. Therefore, not to be the odd guy at the table I picked up my taco and took the first bite. The taco I built was rather cantankerous. As soon as I bit it, all the ingredients in that taco deserted the taco shell and went back to the plate. Now what was I supposed to do? As discreetly as possible, one of my friends at the table slipped me a fork. I do not know if you are supposed to eat a taco with a fork, but I did, so arrest me! On my last day, I went to my hotel front desk to see if I could find another restaurant in the area for my last meal in California. I told the person at the front desk that I had eaten at some Mexican restaurants and was wondering if she could recommend a non-Mexican restaurant in the area. She smiled at me and said, S, seor. She caught me off guard so I spun around but did not see any seniors behind me. I turned back and asked again if she could recommend a non-Mexican restaurant. S, seor. Again, I turned around and as true as I am telling this, there was nobody behind me, especially a senior. Then it dawned on me. She was speaking Spanish. After all, this is California. I understand that Si is the Spanish word for the English word yes. I did not let on, however, but I was slightly offended by her calling me a senior. All she had to do was just say yes, sir. That would have made me happy. It is important to hear but more than important than that to hear the right thing. After all, some of the stuff we hear is not worth hearing let alone repeating. The apostle Paul set this down for us. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17 KJV). My faith is not based upon any rumor but upon the Word of God. SNYDERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 Jews are a peculiar people. We no sooner finish observing one holiday when we start thinking about the next one. I think this has to do with the way the Torah has mandated the observances to us. Each time we observe a holiday or Shabbat, we feel a special connection to God and our ancestors, the continuum of Jewish culture and tradition. This year, you could hear the collective groan from Jews all over the world when they all discovered that the High Holidays, the holiest days of the Jewish liturgical year, fall two days after Labor Day. Too early! Because the Jewish calendar is a lunar one and the secular a solar, there is bound to be discrepancies and so we have Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur coming in early instead of the middle to late September. Regardless of the date, the themes of the holiday remain the same, as do the observances. Hayom Harat Olom. Today the world came into being. So states the liturgy for Rosh Hashanah. While Jews take notice of creation each week with the celebration of the Sabbath, on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, we pay particular attention to the concept of the creation of the whole universe, the special day when everything got started. With this idea in mind, I would like to offer some very special gifts to our world in honor of her birthday. First, I would like to give her clean air and water, without which life on this planet could not exist. I wish smog free skies, clear horizons and sweetsmelling breezes. I want our earth to breathe in and out with life affirming breaths, filling our atmosphere with freshness and health. I aspire all life to embrace this freshness and flourish with vitality and growth. Next, I would give our world, clean water. Let the rivers, streams, creeks, brooks, lakes and ocean flow free and clear in robust courses, wending their way through forests, towns, cities to their ultimate destinations. May all the creatures that live in these waters find A Jewish New Years message Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE16 JUDICONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 Christs Church of Marion CountyFriday, Sept. 6: Garden of Hope Soup Kitchen, 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 7: Mystery Dinner Theater, 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8: Sunday School, 9:30 a.m. Worship Service, 10:30 a.m. Friendship Fellowship Luncheon.

The first 25 entries who meet the criteria will be accepted, so if your club, organization, or business is interested in entering a contestant, it is imperative that you submit the entry form a.s.a.p. No entry forms will be accepted after April 1. There is no entry fee. Cash prizes are as follows: First Prize: $1,000, Second Prize, $500, and Third Prize, $250.

Model Entry Guidelines, Deadlines, and Rewards Only one model (age 18 years or older) per entry may be submitted for consideration as a participant in the fashion show. Each outfit entered is to be designed by a non-professional designer of the club, business, or organization entering a model into the competition; the designer may, of course, also serve as the model. The fashion worn must be made from at least 75 percent recycled materials; vintage clothing may not be entered. Recycled accessories are permitted. No sharp edges or other items that could potentially injure the model or others may be used. Given the educational nature of the event, designs must not be too revealing. Each model may bring with him or her one additional backstage person to help in the preparation of the show. Interested participants must first complete an entry application, which can be submitted at any time. However, please keep in mind, as stated above, that the first 25 entries that meet the criteria will be selected to participate in this competition, so it is imperative that those who wish to enter do so immediately. It is important to keep in mind that it does take time to design and create these fabulous fashions from recycled material. Please note that the designer and the model are not necessarily the same person. When designs are completed, participants are required to show the outfit to the person in charge of models, as listed below and a photograph will be taken at that time to be shared with the fashion show committee-at-large. The description form provides a short description of the outfit, delineating the materials used, design technique, etc. The form must be submitted on or before the April 1, 2014 deadline. Please note that the Master of Ceremonies will use these cards to introduce the models, and the judges will use the description forms to aid them in determining the winners. Because this is a competition, models will be identified only by number. The deadline for viewing of the outfit and description form submission is April 1, 2014. Judges will award points to the fashions designed based on the following criteria: visual impact; design concept; construction technique; creativity; and best use of materials. For information/questions on design requirements or modeling, call Dolores at 352-509-7545 or contact her via e-mail at otowlionsclub@gmail.com. Ticket Information Tickets are available to anyone, not just residents of OTOW Communities, since the Circle Square Cultural Center is accessible outside the OTOW Communities.

food and freedom in abundance, each according to its kind, as nature intended. May we all swim, boat and splash in joy on earths waterways. May our drinking water be pure and sweet free of pesticides and phosphates and may our beautiful springs here in Florida remain untouched and natural treasures. I also offer to our world protection to the creatures that live on our planet. May they be safeguarded from poachers who covet their fur, tusks or other body parts. May they not be hunted to extinction so that our grandchildren only know these creatures from pictures in a book. May the lion roar and the sea turtles find their way to the ocean. May humans never disturb the balance of nature, overfish our seas or kill animals for trophy. In Jewish tradition, we are partners with God in creation. We did not create the world, but we are not to destroy it either. I offer the present of conservation as my next gift. Let us be resourceful in our use of natural gas, oil, coal and wood. Let us make our homes and businesses energy efficient so that we do not waste our natural resources. Let us create new sources of energy without depleting those we already have. My last gift is, unfortunately, the most elusive, that is, peace. When nations can put away their differences and political agendas and take out the things that we all aspire to, good health care and education for our children, decent wages and freedom of religion, assembly and speech, then we will all be on the road to peace. Without international cooperation, we are doomed to the petty rivalries and feuds that have plagued us since one caveman decided that the grass was greener on the other side of the cave and that his neighbors possessions were up for grabs. Let us remember that all humans are created in the image of God and that we need to treat all with respect. As we approach the New Year of 5774, let us blow out all the candles on the earths cake and start doing some of the resolutions and promises we will make as we pray for salvation in the New Year. If each of us could do even a small act to support the gifts I have proposed for our earth, Im sure the Creator would smile and the whole world would be filled with love. L shanah tovah! Happy New Year(Rosh Hashanah began on Sept. 4 at sundown.) Friday, September 6, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, September 6, 2013 www.smcitizen.com build my own taco. Never having done such a thing in my life I covertly glanced around to see how my friends were building their taco. I tried to do the same. I got all of the ingredients on my taco shell, rolled it up, folded it and then looked around to see what I was supposed to do next. Is this finger food? Should I be using a fork or a spoon? I noticed everybody at the table picked up their taco as though it was finger food or maybe a sandwich. Actually, I am not sure what a taco really is. Therefore, not to be the odd guy at the table I picked up my taco and took the first bite. The taco I built was rather cantankerous. As soon as I bit it, all the ingredients in that taco deserted the taco shell and went back to the plate. Now what was I supposed to do? As discreetly as possible, one of my friends at the table slipped me a fork. I do not know if you are supposed to eat a taco with a fork, but I did, so arrest me! On my last day, I went to my hotel front desk to see if I could find another restaurant in the area for my last meal in California. I told the person at the front desk that I had eaten at some Mexican restaurants and was wondering if she could recommend a non-Mexican restaurant in the area. She smiled at me and said, S, seor. She caught me off guard so I spun around but did not see any seniors behind me. I turned back and asked again if she could recommend a non-Mexican restaurant. S, seor. Again, I turned around and as true as I am telling this, there was nobody behind me, especially a senior. Then it dawned on me. She was speaking Spanish. After all, this is California. I understand that Si is the Spanish word for the English word yes. I did not let on, however, but I was slightly offended by her calling me a senior. All she had to do was just say yes, sir. That would have made me happy. It is important to hear but more than important than that to hear the right thing. After all, some of the stuff we hear is not worth hearing let alone repeating. The apostle Paul set this down for us. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17 KJV). My faith is not based upon any rumor but upon the Word of God. SNYDERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 Jews are a peculiar people. We no sooner finish observing one holiday when we start thinking about the next one. I think this has to do with the way the Torah has mandated the observances to us. Each time we observe a holiday or Shabbat, we feel a special connection to God and our ancestors, the continuum of Jewish culture and tradition. This year, you could hear the collective groan from Jews all over the world when they all discovered that the High Holidays, the holiest days of the Jewish liturgical year, fall two days after Labor Day. Too early! Because the Jewish calendar is a lunar one and the secular a solar, there is bound to be discrepancies and so we have Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur coming in early instead of the middle to late September. Regardless of the date, the themes of the holiday remain the same, as do the observances. Hayom Harat Olom. Today the world came into being. So states the liturgy for Rosh Hashanah. While Jews take notice of creation each week with the celebration of the Sabbath, on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, we pay particular attention to the concept of the creation of the whole universe, the special day when everything got started. With this idea in mind, I would like to offer some very special gifts to our world in honor of her birthday. First, I would like to give her clean air and water, without which life on this planet could not exist. I wish smog free skies, clear horizons and sweetsmelling breezes. I want our earth to breathe in and out with life affirming breaths, filling our atmosphere with freshness and health. I aspire all life to embrace this freshness and flourish with vitality and growth. Next, I would give our world, clean water. Let the rivers, streams, creeks, brooks, lakes and ocean flow free and clear in robust courses, wending their way through forests, towns, cities to their ultimate destinations.

Friday, September 6, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, September 6, 2013 www.smcitizen.com It was my pleasure to take my first trip to California. I heard many rumors about California and particularly the people there. Overall, my trip was a blessing and the people I met were truly wonderful. I did, however, have an illusion of California burst. You know how it is, you hear a lot about something or someone and much of what you hear you later find out is not true. One of the first things I discovered when I got to California was that they are not as progressive as I was led to believe. Everybody thinks California is way ahead of the rest of the country. I found it not to be so. Coming to California from Florida I discovered California is at least three hours behind Florida. This came as a shock to me. I could not believe people in Florida were ahead of people in California in anything. Truth cannot be denied when faced boldly. Also, I heard interesting rumors about the LA Freeway. Believe me, it is really nothing to boast about. The speed limit sign along the freeway said 65 mph. I guess that represents some of the comedy Hollywood is known for. Driving on the freeway, when I was moving, I almost hit 15 mph. For a state so concerned about global warming, they allow their cars to sit on the freeway doing nothing but blowing exhaust into the sky. In the state of Florida, an old geezer will not get in his car unless he can hit 70 mph, along with other things. I must admit those California people on the LA Freeway were very friendly indeed and much to my surprise, quite religious. All of them were greeting me in a very husky voice and then pointing me toward heaven. They actually were encouraging me to go to heaven. Of course, in all the anxiety of the LA Freeway, they got their fingers mixed up and instead of using the index finger, used another finger. That is beside the point. The important thing is they wanted me to go to heaven. Of course, as I think of it now, maybe they wanted me to go to heaven at that moment! During my visit, friends took me to several Mexican restaurants. For the first time in my life, I had what is called a taco. How they come up with these names I will never know. An interesting thing about a taco is that whoever prepares it, does not actually prepare it. When my taco came, it was all over my plate. There were little piles of this ingredient and that ingredient and then something folded up on my plate, which was the taco shell. What I was supposed to do was Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder I wish we all could be California foils PLEASESEESNYDER, PAGE13 In 1978, Congress passed legislation proclaiming the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day. The days purpose is to honor grandparents, to give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their childrens children, and to help children become aware of strength, information, and guidance older people can offer. Wandering through Pun Alley we run into some funny stories that go along with being grandparents and make us glad we can turn the little darlins back to their parents after a day or two.Smart youngsterTwo young boys were spending the night at their grandparents the week before Christmas. At bedtime, the two boys knelt beside their beds to say their prayers when the youngest one began praying at the top of his lungs. I pray for a new bicycle! I pray for a new iPAD! His older brother leaned over and nudged the younger brother and said, Why are you shouting your prayers? God isnt deaf. To which the little brother replied, No, but Grandma is.Foolproof signWhen Toms grandson asked how old he was, Tom teasingly replied, Im not sure. Look in your underwear, Grandpa, the grandson advised, Mine says Im 4 to 6.Retardment communityOne child wrote: Grandma and Grandpa used to live in a big house but they moved to Florida. Now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look like grass. They ride around on their bicycles and wear name tags because they dont know who they are anymore. They go to a building called a wreck center, but they must have fixed it because it is okay now. There is a swimming pool too, but all they do is jump up and down in it with hats on. At their gate, there is a doll house with a man sitting in it. He watches all day so nobody can escape. Sometimes they sneak out, and go cruising in their golf carts. Nobody there cooks, they just eat out. And they eat the same thing every night early birds. Some of them bring food to the wrecked center for pot luck. My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday, too.Grannys homeWhen the driver stopped the school bus to pick up Chris for preschool, she noticed an older woman hugging him as he left the house. Is that your grandmother? she asked. Yes, Chris said. Shes come to visit us. How nice, the driver said. Where does she live? At the airport, Chris replied. Whenever we want her, we just go out there and get her.Would-be boastsTwo little boys were talking. One little boy turned to the other boy and said, My grandfather has a wooden leg. The other little boy replied, So what? My grandma has a cedar chest.Hard waterAll of his life, Michigan native Len had heard stories of an amazing family tradition. It seems that his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather had all been able to walk on water on their 21st birthday. On that day, they walked across the lake to the boat club for their first legal drink. So, when Lens 21st birthday came around, he and his friend, Corky, took a boat out to the middle of the lake. Len stepped out of the boat and nearly drowned. Corky just managed to pull him to safety. Furious and confused, Len went to see his grandmother. Grandma, its my 21st birthday, so why cant I walk across the lake like my father, his father and his father before him? Granny looked Len straight in the eyes and said, Because your father, grandfather and great-grandfather were born in January. You were born in July.Bright futureA little old lady was on a park bench in the Bronx. A neighbor admired her two little grandchildren and asked how old they were. The little old lady said, The lawyer is four and the doctor is six.Dj vu all over againThe daughter said, I really appreciate you and Dad watching my kids today, Mom. Later, Grandma said, Im really worn out. I remember being exhausted when our kids were babies. Now, with grandkids, Im exhausted all over again! Grandpa replied, Its to be expected. Why do you think they call folks our age re-tired? To all grandparents, have a chuckle on your day Pun Alley Dick Frank Darlene Weesner, author/artist/educator and perhaps Marion Countys most passionate environmentalist, will headline the next Friday Forum on Sept. 13 with an examination of the Water Spine of Florida and the looming water wars with neighboring states as the largest network of freshwater springs in the world faces destruction. Few individuals are more knowledgeable about Marion Countys past or more concerned about its future. The chapter called Where oh where will the sinkholes sink? in Weesners history of Marion County titled We might we did and we could is invaluable.

Friday, September 6, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, September 6, 2013 www.smcitizen.com I would say to Commissioner Bryant, It would behoove you to be aware that government is already doing that since you are required by law to get rabies shots for your dog every three years, you are required to provide food, shelter and water for your dog, you are required to leash your dog when walking, and you must register and license your dog. These are laws for the benefit of the animals and people. For the commission to formulate an ordinance to ban continuous tethering is not encroaching on anyones rights but to show compassion and care for an animal when it is not given that care by an owner. It would give animal control officers the ability to make owners aware of their responsibilities. Fred Peters OcalaEditors note: In this weeks meeting, speakers said they would settle for nothing less than a 24-hour, 7-day ban.User names and passwordsWe are seniors and fed up! Have you tried to get to your bank, telephone, cell, credit cards or any of your utilities accounts lately? Never in my life did I ever think I would have to go through so many hoops just to get to know how much I owe these people or if they have received my payment and what if any is my balance. They first con you in with go paperless and go on line, its fast, it saves trees etc. Well, guess what, it does not save me time, after spending over half an hour going through all their questions about my dog, cat, car, spouse, mother and any other persons I might have come in contact with, in all my years here on earth asking for user names, passwords and secret answers for which I dont even remember after finishing their requests and I have them written down, when I try to go back in to check on the information that I want and need, the system tells me Im locked out because I tried and messed up too much. Well Im fed up with the whole thing and will now refuse all these and do what Ive done in the pass and call them on the phone and then will have to go through all of it again with someone from another world who doesnt speak or understand English and guess what, Ill hang up! I have tried and most times have failed to get a company that deals solely in the USA, what is going on here, why are we letting all of our resources be sourced out to other countries, when we have people here who dont have jobs? People, please unite and let companies that you deal with know that if they dont do all of their business here in the U.S. youll go elsewhere, if we start letting companies know that we are fed up with this kind of treatment maybe just maybe theyll listen and this will not only help our economy but provide much needed jobs and save our tax dollars that support government programs to help those with no jobs. J & N Poirier, OcalaBipartisan cooperationNo one wants business as usual if changes to government agencies can make government more efficient. But the way to make lasting change happen is with bipartisan cooperation. While Congress is grounded by partisan squabbling and inaction, our country suffers. These members of Congress are not job creators, as they would like us to believe, but job curtailers in the government sector. Perhaps if sequestration had begun with cuts to the salaries of members of Congress, it would have resulted in a different outcome. As a country we are bludgeoning ourselves to death.

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.

Friday, September 6, 2013 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, September 6, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Rebuttal to column After reading the Aug. 30 commentary written by editor Jim Clark, in which he described the County Commission meeting that he had attended regarding the continuous tethering of dogs, I get the impression that he really didnt get the message. He gave a lengthy description of how he and his family treated the family dog when he was a young man. Before going out, the dog was tethered and water and shelter was provided. When the family came home the dog came in and shared the house including the bed with him, contrary to his mothers wishes. I find it difficult to understand that with all of the folks that spoke at the meeting describing the deplorable conditions under which some of these dogs exist that he takes the position that he has. Firstly, he is completely wrong in what he wrote in which he said that what was being asked for was that all tethering should be banned. He totally ignored the word continuously, because that is the issue. As one of the speakers at that meeting, I recounted a story told to me by a resident of Marion Oaks about a neighbor who had tethered his dog when it was about 6 months old and had never been taken off the tether for several years. When I went to look at the dog, it was extremely aggressive when I came near. There was a water bowl with green and slimy looking water outside and my assumption is that the water is filled when it rains. The tether was long enough to allow the dog to get into a porch with a broken door that gave it about 2 feet of shelter. Under existing laws the dog was totally legal since it had shelter and water. Since it was alive, it must be assumed that it was being fed although it looked scrawny. I was appalled at his comments about a child that had been mauled and killed by a tethered dog when the child wandered into a neighbors yard and he blamed the mother for neglect. There are other cases of children being killed and maimed by tethered dogs. He doesnt seem to understand that dogs are territorial and when their lifetime territory consists of a small area such as tethering offers, they might defend that territory especially if they dont have much human contact. In his commentary he mentioned the remark by Commission Chairperson Kathy Bryant in which she said, I take care of my animals and I dont want government to tell me how to do that. LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE11 With the Labor Day weekend, summer has officially come to an end, but we still have one more celebration of the 100 Days of Summer festivals here at Cherrywood.

One of the first orders of business was the election of Richard Hurley as league president and Norma Alexander as league secretary/treasurer. Teams were organized and a committee established to make recommendations for the season ending bowling banquet.

Our bowling league is one of the most successful programs in our community so if you would like to be a part of it; please contact Rich Hurley at 352-873-7208 and let him know.

How many dead bodies is enough?/ Have you ever viewed pictures of the body piles from recent Holocausts? Seems like we have had more than enough already, I think. What is your limit? How many more millions will it take before we get it? Does every generation have to go through a holocaust, with its attendant barbarism, ferocity, bloodshed, torture, and wanton cruelty? When society becomes depraved, God does not listen. God said bring me 50 righteous men, and I will save Sodom and Gomorrah. Anyone got 50 righteous men in their pocket? Bring them on. Could God be paying attention, this time, and giving a gentle nudge to the 49 percent in Egypt? Perhaps we can expect a miracle in America as well, if we stand up, and speak out. The History Channel has a series titled: The Men Who Built America. They did build, but they also power lusted as well. They did not need all the money they made. However, instead of paying a living wage to their workers, they lusted after the title of richest person in America, or the world. Then they endowed all sorts of things with their name on it, but not one extra cent for their workers. Are these people intelligent, or greedy, vain, or just plain power hungry? Power lusters are one side of the coin. The useful idiots are the other side of the coin, and problem. They fail to learn to act in their own best interest, but, rather leave it to others to fix things, and you see how that turns out. Do we want another holocaust? Our representatives do not represent we the people. Hedge funds, and derivatives are worthless pieces of paper, that are traded like worthwhile investments. Power lusters manipulated these into law, by using their lackeys in Congress. We need to get rid of them, the laws and the lackeys. Get us out of the UN, the IRS must go, repeal the Federal Reserve act of 1913, and the EPA. Get rid of the Federal Department of education, we can raise our children. Outlaw lobbying for laws favorable to power lusters. With these issues gone it will help level the playing field. Because something is legal does not mean it is just, moral, or right. Useful idiots have their own problems. If you believe in God, you know he does not help the sinful. Have we turned our back on God? Let me count the ways. Who in this population believes in sin? In our anything goes society. Some things are immoral, whether we like it or not. If I have to look at one more female shaking her body, boobs, or butt in my face on TV, or, a bloody or mutilated body, or jaded sports matches, or, illiterate macho dudes butchering the English language, or idiot news, I may barf, This is considered entertainment, I click, a lot. In fact, that is what I do most and best. Any awards given for clicking? Is this fare making God happy? I am certain God is ready to rush out, and help us. We deny God exists, and we act accordingly. Who is available to save us from ourselves? I am putting my bet on Benjamin Carson, and Rand Paul in 2016. When society becomes depraved, God does not listen. Do not hold your breath. While driving this week, I saw something that opened up a new perspective about useful idiots. There were six huge trash bags piled by the road. I thought they were dumped, but a short distance further on, someone was picking up more trash. How many decades has it been since the plea not to litter began? If people cannot grasp an issue so basic, so simple, so common sense, so civil, so mannerly, how can they be trusted with more pressing issues, such as voting, attending college, holding political office, run companies? These people are deciding my lifestyle, and yours. Are you happy with that arrangement? The useful idiots are not choir persons. They need to mend their lives, if God is to heed our pleas for help. We all have work to do. Knowledgeable voting would help. Does anyone still believe we will have peace, and fairness without both sides of the coin putting their houses in order? Or, will Useful Idiots rely once again on power lusters to put our national house in order. I do not want to rely yet again on Power Lusters. The price is too high. Unless we decide to do some major house cleaning, now, we may be headed for yet another holocaust, and another dark ages in history. Just like Germany, Russia, Vietnam, China, Cuba, North Korea. We can no longer afford to keep our heads in the sand. Will we go down in history at the smartest generation, or the dumbest generation? Will we learn, in time, what is in our best interest? I hope so? Nothing good will happen if we sit on our hands, or fail to speak out. America is mankinds best hope. This is the message in Shakedown Socialism by Oleg Atbasian a Russian who immigrated to this country in 1990. He witnessed socialism in action, and discovered its flaws. He is now questioning what is happening in America, and where he might possibly go next. America is the beacon for all who wish to be free, if we allow it to go progressive there is no where for freedom seeking refugees of the entire world. to go. Help fix it, please. America is a keeper.

Friday, September 6, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 6, 2013 Dont start a warMany political leaders in America believe that it is our responsibility to attack Syria because their leader used poison gas on his own people. President Bashar Assad must have felt that it was necessary to prove to the world that a strong leader could do anything in his power to prove his position in the world, right or wrong. Russia is supporting this ruthless leader of Syria with military weapons and war ships in the Mediterranean sea that would attack all that interferes with Assad. The support from Russia and China of this ruthless leader makes it impossible for the United Nations to act in the defense of the people of Syria. Why is it Americas responsibility to be the sole protector of the world by imposing our will on any country that commits atrocities against its own people. We have been involved in many wars that were none of our business and not in our countrys best interest even with millions of people being slaughtered around the world. This may sound cold hearted but we cant control the world nor its leaders. Think back and try to come up with a legitimate reason to protect Americas interest that we invaded North Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. None of these wars were necessary. Every president that involved our country in these wars did so for political reasons only to show that they were strong leaders and could convince our Congress that these wars were necessary. The last legitimate war that America was involved in was World War 11 after we were attacked first. I feel that the United Nations has lost all credibility by allowing these local wars to escalate to the point where millions of people were being slaughtered. Please Mr. President, remain strong, and try to influence our Congress that we should not start World War III. Jerry Segovis OcalaIts our faultLife is not fair. And it never will be unless we sit down and figure out why. Then figure out how to use common sense to fix it. Stupidity will not do the job. How many times have you heard that phrase? Whose fault is that? Gods? Ours? I vote for ours. We never seem to take note when someone wants to use us for their nefarious purposes. How does the scenario unfold? Let us try to do a little unfolding, and see what we find, this time around. There are two sides to every coin, and problem. There are two sides to this problem, with a bunch of us, the middle class, being the collateral ,caught in the middle, between these two offending groups. Marx and Lenin identified the one half of the coin, the useful idiots, the half they needed to manipulate, to perpetrate their holocaust. However, they neglected the other side of the coin. Who were they in this equation? They were, as are all those who occupy their shoes, the power lusters. Every generation produces these two groups. Spotting the new crop of power lusters would help. We must stop them by just saying no. The useful idiots know not what they do, and are duped over and over. It would be helpful to educate the idiots, and end the cycle of holocausts, and unfairness. The 64 thousand dollar question is: How? The power lusters know how to manipulate useful idiots. Promise them anything, but give them a free phone. Then take them to the gulag, concentration camp, internment areas, etc. Evil is superb at dressing itself to look friendly, helpful, nirvana producers. MesOnce more, last week, we had a murder-suicide in Marion County. And once again, it was a couple in their advanced years. The deaths occurred in a subdivision near The Villages, at the southern end of the county. A man had checked his wife out of her home in assisted living, then a couple of days later apparently shot and killed her with a shotgun before turning the weapon on himself. Its not the first time in the past year that we have seen desperate people in some sort of situation take this way out. The Alliance for Aging published some strategies to prevent senior suicide: Optimize function and reduce isolation, Restrict access to lethal means, and Diagnose and prevent depression. These strategies help combat three of the most common factors that place older adults at higher risk for suicide. Research has found that older adults who live alone are more likely to commit suicide, particularly if they are divorced or widowed. People considering suicide often withdraw from their normal social engagements, but staying active can improve moods and decrease the likelihood of depression. Exercising, spending time with loved ones, developing a new hobby, and joining a support group are good ways for older people to avoid depression and suicide. Family and community members can serve as strong support systems and encourage behavior that keeps them active and connected. Easy access to handguns can also place seniors at a greater risk of suicide. Statistics show that older people with handguns in their households are more than twice as likely to commit suicide as those without access to firearms. Lethal weapons are the most common method of suicide by the elderly and result in a very high completion rate. By being aware of handguns in the home of an older loved one, family and friends may be able to prevent an imminent suicide. It is also critical to recognize the signs of depression in the elderly. Sixty to 75 percent of suicide victims age 75 and older have diagnosable clinical depression. Older adults may experience slightly different symptoms than younger depression patientstypical symptoms include anxiety, fatigue, loss of interest in hobbies, isolation, unexplained weight loss, and suicidal thoughts. In the most recent Marion County case, as in others, the couple lived alone, and the wife was in assisted living, leaving the husband to fend for himself. This is where neighbors and friends can come in. Theres a natural tendency to shy away from people who have just lost a loved one, in some cases just because people dont know what to say. But making sure that the lonely person is not left in isolation is a key component to getting that person back into the world, taking care of themselves to a point where they look forward to each day. So if youre living alone, seek out others so you can join in some activities. Most of the people around here live in relatively active communities with plenty of things to do if theyll only seek them out. And if you know of someone who is alone and not doing anything, try to visit them and get them into the mix in their neighborhoods. It can be beneficial for both of you. I just hate seeing these stories come across the computer, the stories of people who take their own lives because to them, there is no other way out. Lets all take steps to make sure that this doesnt happen to someone we know.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Have you ever pulled an all-nighter cramming for a test, had a neighbors barking dog keep you up all night or pulled a double shift at work? Each of us has likely encountered situations similar to these and found it difficult to stay awake the next day. Getting behind the wheel of a vehicle while fatigued and drowsy can have dangerous, and sometimes deadly, consequences. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, each year drowsy driving crashes result in at least 1,500 deaths and 71,000 injuries. Similar to drunk and drugged driving, sleep loss or fatigue slows reaction time, makes drivers less attentive and impairs decision-making skills. The Florida Legislature designated the first week of September each year as Drowsy Driving Prevention Week to educate the public on the dangers of driving while drowsy and to honor the memory of 8-year-old Ronshay Dugans, whoy was killed in 2008 when her school bus was hit by a driver who fell asleep. A drowsy driver can be as dangerous on the road as a drunk driver, said Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Director Julie L. Jones. Before getting behind the wheel of a vehicle, be sure you are well rested or have another licensed driver with you who can take over if you become too tired to drive safely. Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad said, Keeping motorists safe on our roadways is our top priority at the Florida Department of Transportation. We encourage drivers to be fully alert and never drive drowsy. The following warning signs indicate that its time to stop driving and find a safe place to pull over and address your condition: Difficulty focusing, frequent blinking and/or heavy eyelids Difficulty keeping reveries or daydreams at bay Trouble keeping your head up Drifting from your lane, swerving, tailgating and/or hitting rumble strips Inability to remember the last few miles driven Missing exits or traffic signs Yawning repeatedly Feeling restless, irritable, or aggressive. Heres what you can do to prevent a fall-asleep crash: Get a good nights sleep before you hit the road. Youll want to be alert for the drive, so be sure to get adequate sleep (7 to 9 hours) the night before you go. Dont be too rushed to arrive at your destination. Many drivers try to maximize their trip by driving at night or without stopping for breaks. Its better to allow the time to drive alert and arrive alive. Use the buddy system. Just as you should not swim alone, avoid driving alone for long distances. A buddy who remains awake for the journey can take a turn behind the wheel and help see the signs of fatigue. Take a break every 100 miles or 2 hours. Do something to refresh yourself like getting a snack, switching drivers, or going for a run. Take a napfind a safe place to take a 15 to 20minute nap, if you think you might fall asleep. Be cautious about excessive drowsiness after waking up. Avoid alcohol and medications that cause drowsiness as a side-effect. Avoid driving when you would normally be asleep. Consume caffeine. The equivalent of two cups of coffee can increase alertness for several hours. For more information, visit http://drowsydriving.org.

Richard Cote was laid to rest in Bushnell on Friday, Aug. 30. Richard was honored by family and friends that gathered to hear of his accomplishments and how much he was loved and admired. On Sept. 13 at 10 a.m., services for Robert Hall will be held at Roberts Funeral Home. Following the service, he too will be taken to Bushnell for burial with full military honors. The Veterans Club would like to express their deepest sympathies to the families of these two men who served their country honorably and courageously. We are fortunate indeed to live in a country that produces such individuals who are willing to serve; sacrifice and devote their lives to the preservation of freedom. Both Richard and Robert will be missed. On a brighter note; this coming week my son and his fianc will be visiting from California. They will be occupying most of my time as I show them around the town and share the beauty of central Florida with them. For that reason, next week my duties have been taken over by Geri in the office and our ace photographer Holly Bragdon. Please contact them with any articles or ideas that you might have for this column in your Citizen Newspaper. I thank Geri and Holly for allowing me a week off.

One of these new people, David Unverfehrt, plays the dual roles of Hickory, the farm hand, and the Tin Man. David is from southern Illinois and is semi-retired from a farming and a varied business career. In February he visited Oak Run, and wandered into the Palm Grove where some ladies from the Performing Arts Company asked him if he sings. He said yes, and that was the start of his interest in being in theatre. (Thank you PACOR ladies!) He recently bought a home here, and immediately joined our theatre group, just in time to audition for The Wizard of Oz. Being unfamiliar with the music for the Tin Man solo, he asked if he could sing songs that he performs in church. Well,he got a standing ovation from all the folks also there to audition. When you see him perform, youll agree weve been blessed by another wonderfully talented person. In addition to singing, and now acting, David enjoys flying (he has a private pilots license), motorcycle riding, traveling and making new friends. Some of the people new to being on stage have the dual roles of Munchkins and Ozians (citizens of Emerald City). Some of these include Billie Gabel, who got her feet wet behind the scenes in the spring play doing sound effects and, Sara Schmitt who has always been behind the scenes working on costumes and being an usher (shes also working on costumes). Others, who are new to PACOR and jumped at the chance to be a Munchkin / Ozian include Flo Feltman, Sue Dubin, and Howard Spies. Actually, Howard also has a third role, the general of the Wicked Witchs army. Oct. 11, 12 and 13 are the show dates, so get your tickets now! The next ticket sale dates are Monday, Sept. 9, at The Palm Grove from 10:15 to 10:45 a.m. and Saturday, Sept.14, at the Orchid Club from 8 to 10 a.m. during the Donut Drop In.

Harrison The silent wife of the title is Jodi Brett, a contented soul. At forty-five Jodi still sees herself as a young woman. She does not have her eye on the future but lives very much in the moment. She assumes, without having thought about it, that things will go on indefinitely in their imperfect yet entirely acceptable way. For that reason shes seen little reason to marry Todd Gilbert, her significant other of 20 years. Why fix something thats not broken, shed argue. Granted, Todds a cheater but they have a gorgeous Chicago condo, expensive furniture and fast cars. So its not hard to look the other way at Todds peccadillos. Alas, poor deluded Jodi, the enabler, the pamperer, and kitchen diva who nightly cooks up fantastic meals for the man in her life is treading on quicksand. A part-time psychotherapist who sees a few clients in her luxurious condo, Jodi feels that shes a complement to Todd, a professional renovator. Their life together is both tidy and tranquil. But now Todds taken his infidelity to a new unacceptable level. His affair with the 20-something daughter of his best friend Dean at first lifted him out of his midlife depression. Unfortunately, young Natasha gets pregnant and demands marriage. Secretly, Todd has always wanted an heir, something not in the cards with Jodi. So when he tells her that hes leaving her, Jodi decides to do whatever it takes to get him back. The narration alternates between Her and Him. Todd mostly makes excuses to justify his actions whereas Jodis knowledge of human behavior shows her as patient and self-possessed. Despite comparisons to last years blockbuster novel Gone Girl, theres really little comparison between the two. Both do have the same her/his viewpoints and endings that have divided readers. But Silent lacks the intense suspense that haunted the pages of Gone Girl until the end. Sadly, the author of this book died before its publication. But according to her husband she did live to see some early rave reviews. A mesmerizing read. A mesmerizing story of infidelity Bookmark Pat Wellington BY CAROLYN TEN BROECK Williston PioneerSometimes ideas that start out as personal goals mushroom into bigger ideas that can benefit a community. Thats what happened when Williston native and Rotarian Justin Head decided he wanted to run a 5K race. About four months ago, Head set a goal, downloaded an iPhone app called Couch to 5K (C25K) and began an eight week program that, if completed, would have him physically ready to compete. Those 30-minute, three times a week, workouts paid off and sure enough by the end of the eight weeks he was running 3.1 miles and ready to compete. The only problem? There wasnt a 5K race around. Shortly after that, during a Williston Rotary Club meeting, members were brainstorming ideas to grow the membership and promote the upcoming Peanut Festival. Thats when Head and fellow Rotarian Chris Cowart threw out the idea of a 5K race to coincide with the annual Williston event. The Purple Pinkie Peanut Run will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 5 right before the Peanut Festival kicks off. Pre-registration is under way and will continue through Sept. 20. After that date runners will still be able to race, but there is no guarantee of a commemorative T-shirt. This will be something positive for the community, Head said, and some proceeds from the race will go toward Rotary Internationals Purple Pinkie Program that is dedicated to the eradication of polio in the three countries in the world where it exists. Other proceeds will help with our education projects including The Dictionary Project and The Black Stallion, a literacy program for fourth graders. Head pointed out this is no a highly competitive event. Its about having fun, he said. Four prizes will be given at the end of the race: fastest male, fastest female, oldest entrant and youngest entrant. Entry fee is $25 through Sept. 20 and $30 after. The race will begin at the north end of Heritage Park, Head said, and aid and water stations will be available. Register at www.active.com Not up to the 3.1 miles? You can also walk/run in the one mile event, he said. Our goal is 100 runners, Head said. He can already count on onehimself.

viously it puts me in an awkward situation. Our boarddoes not adopt out any animals that will be tethered. That is absolute policy. Does that mean theres no room for compromise? Theyre not mutually exclusive. The panel needs to be set up with seven people making a recommendation to you all we need to have this panel going. Bryant asked him if he could sit on the task force with an open mind. Fishalow replied, I will negotiate in good faith to make something happen to get these dogs off of tethers. Commissioner Earl Arnett commented, There are people on the panel who will not come in with an open mind. We still need to put a board together. Commissioner David Moore, who was the only commissioner to vote for a public hearing in the first place, said, Were each going to put a person on there, and theyll come back with a recommendation. Bryant reminded the panel members that this is for one specific issue and one issue only. We need to be clear with that. McClain continued his objection, Im just having a hard time Im sorry. Bryant asked Norman to come back to the podium, and the Humane Society representative backed off her hard stance just a little. This panel, I would hope, is going to be an exchange of ideas I let the evidence take me where it took me, let the evidence go where it would take you. Norman and Fishalow were appointed to the task force, as well as Animal Services Department Director Deb Horvath, Sheriffs Lt. Kevin Rowe, Ocala police officer Brandon Sirolli, former candidate Butch Verrando, and Ken Araujo, who trains K9 animals for law enforcement. Earlier in the meeting, Patricia Reed cited studies that she said revealed that the tethering of dogs is not always harmful. The tether is not the problem, but the people.

More on Page 4 what can be accomplished when the state invests wisely to support and supplement department and water management district restoration programs, said Department Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. Much more needs to be done, but these projects can pave the way to restoring some of our most iconic springs. Springs that will receive funding for projects include Silver, Wekiwa, Rock, Ichetucknee, Rainbow, Chassahowitzka, Homosassa, Weeki Wachee, Jackson Blue, Williford, and springs along the Santa Fe and Suwannee Rivers and Kings Bay. The Northwest Florida Water Management District is grateful to Governor Scott, the Florida Legislature and Secretary Vinyard for recognizing that the protection of Floridas springs is vital to ensuring a clean and sustainable supply of water for our natural systems and our residents, said Jon Steverson, Executive Director of the Northwest Florida Water Management District. We look forward to an ongoing partnership as we continue to improve water quality and protect water resources across Northwest Florida. We would like to thank the Governor and Legislature for supporting the important springs restoration work within the northern portion of our District, said Robert Beltran, assistant executive director for the Southwest Florida Water Management District. The states funding together with the districts funding commitment will help ensure we continue the important task of restoring our springs. The project dollars demonstrate the states commitment to achieving meaningful springs protection, said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Hans G. Tanzler III. We appreciate the work of Governor Scott and the Legislature to allocate the funds. We also appreciate the opportunity to partner with DEP and local governments to move these projects forward and begin to improve the health of our springs and their ecosystems. We are appreciative to Governor Scott and the Legislature for their leadership appropriating springs funding which has successfully leveraged local funds resulting in profound and lasting water quantity and quality protection for our springs, said District Governing Board Chair Donald Quincey, Jr. We are also grateful to our local partners for their funding participation that helped to bring funding to improve our springs. Silv er Sp rin gs O cala Nearly $2 million of state funding will be leveraged to fund a $12 million water quality improvement project that will result in an estimated reduction of 663,000 pounds of nitrogen pollution per year (the equivalent of about 442,000 bags of common fertilizer) going into Silver Springs. These reductions will be achieved by upgrading the City of Ocala Wastewater Facility #2, located near Silver Springs, to advanced treatment, significantly improving the quality of the effluent discharge of the facility. Another approximated $1.5 million in state funding will be directed to Phase II of a more than $8 million water quality improvement and water quantity project that will relocate a wastewater discharge from the Marion County Utilities Silver Springs Shores facility, which is located near Silver Springs, and redirect it for beneficial reuse at area golf courses, further away from the spring. The relocation of the discharge will eliminate a nutrient source near the head of the spring, and result in an estimated reduction of more than 40,000 pounds of nitrogen entering the aquifer per year. It will also result in reduced water consumption at area golf courses and improve the flow of Silver Springs. Ichetucknee Springs Lake City Nearly $4 million in state funding will be invested to leverage $4.6 million water quality improvement project that will improve the treatment of wastewater currently routed to a sprayfield (south of Lake City) being used for disposal and treatment by the City of Lake Citys wastewater treatment facility. This will result in beneficial recharge to the aquifer with higher quality water. It is estimated that this project will achieve a nitrogen reduction of 85 percent, or an estimated reduction of 77,000 pounds of nitrogen per year from going into the aquifer feeding the Ichetucknee Springs System. Kin gs B ayCrystal Riv er Another investment of nearly $500,000 will be leveraged for a nearly $1 million living shoreline project to benefit Kings Bay in Hunters Cove. This project will establish emergent vegetation and restore submerged grasses providing for a 15 percent reduction of nitrogen and 42 percent of phosphorus pollution. In addition, a Three Sisters shoreline stabilization project will also be constructed to prevent further sedimentation from the shoreline and surrounding areas into the springs. An additional $500,000 in state funding will be leverages for a $2 million project that will connect several plants, and upgrade waste water infrastructure, to tie into the municipal waste water system that will result in an estimated load reduction of 6,272 pounds of nitrogen per year. This project will generate approximately 90,000 gallons per day of reclaimed water that will be used by an area golf course, reducing their consumptive use and groundwater withdrawals. R ain bow, Kin gs B ay H omosassa, Chassahow itz ka, Weeki Wachee Sp rin gs G roup T he Sp rin gs Coast This estimated $875,000 water quality improvement and water quantity project will receive $375,000 in state funding. This project is a cost-share initiative to work with area farmers to implement agricultural best management practices (BMPs) within the Springs Coast region that will reduce groundwater withdrawal quantities and/or nutrient loading to the Upper Floridan Aquifer system, ultimately benefiting the springs systems. Agricultural operations in the Springs Coast region include citrus groves, row crops, blueberries, grains, field and container nurseries, and animal operations (cow/calf, equine, poultry). This wide range of agricultural activities presents the opportunity for a variety of technologies that can be used to reduce groundwater use, such as weather stations, soil moisture sensors, automatic timers and pumps, tailwater recovery ponds, and irrigation retrofits using more efficient low-volume systems. Suwa nnee Riv er Sp rin gs Dix ie Coun ty More than $1.5 million in state funding will be invested to leverage $2 million for a water quantity improvement project that will restore natural flows of water enabling an estimated 3 billion gallons per year of surface water storage to be recharged into the aquifer improving spring flows along the middle Suwannee River basin. J ackson B lue Sp rin g Marianna More than $750,000 in state funding will be leveraged for a more than $1.2 million project to improve water quality and reduce water use demands in and around Jackson Blue Spring. The project will enhance irrigation systems to reduce water use by an estimated 7.5 million gallons per day. In addition, improve fertilizer application technologies resulting in an estimated reduction of 11,800 lbs/year of nitrogen fertilizer application for the average farm will lead to a reduction of nutrients entering the groundwater.

RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 This project will focus on sediment removal, erosion control, spring bank and riparian restoration of Williford Spring. The Northwest Florida Water Management District will improve water quality and clarity in the spring by removing 200 cubic yards of sediment from the spring pool, restoring native vegetation along the springbank that helps capture run-off and sediment, and constructing areas to capture and treat stormwater to improve water quality before it enters the spring. This will result in a 50-60 percent reduction of sediment and other stormwater pollutants from entering the spring. This restoration project will also help protect the spring for future generations and at the same time improve public access to the spring. Wekiwa Springs Group Orlando Region Approximately $700,000 in state funding will be leveraged for a more than $3.5 million project to benefit Wekiwa Springs to construct a reclaimed water transmission main to expand Apopkas reclaimed water service into a high recharge area for Wekiwa and Rock Spring, which feeds the Wekiva River. Additional Spring Investments Along with investing in projects, the Department set the very first basin management action plan, or restoration plan, for springs in the Santa Fe River watershed in 2012 and has provided $1.4 million to improve the nutrient controls for agricultural practices in the area in addition to the $5.5 million for springs projects within the Suwannee River Water Management District in the Florida Families First budget.

BY JIM CLARK EditorThe Marion County Commission appointed a task force to look at the dog tethering issue, but the plan was almost scuttled by the apparent hard line by one of the agencies fighting to ban tethering in the county. Late in the meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 3, Commission Chairman KathyBryant called for appointments and made her own. She then called upon Stan McClain to make his, and was greeted with a long pause and then a statement by McClain: I dont know if Im prepared to do anything. He added that it sounds like theres no room for compromise. McClains hesitation came after talks during the public portion of the meeting by Linda Norman, board member of the Humane Society, and resident John Marinelli, among others. Norman read a platform statement from the Humane Society, saying that the agency would not adopt an animal to anyone who plans to chain their dog as a means of containment. She added that chaining is part of the protocol for dogs kept for fighting. She called for a 24hour ban and said it should be enforceable, and that there should be a six-month period for adjustment. Marinelli commented, I represent tethered dogs in Marion County, those who have no voice. I am opposed to anything less than a 24-hour ban. After McClains statement, Commissioner Carl Zalak agreed, saying, It does sound like theres no room for compromise. Some commissioners felt that the purpose of the task force was to look at the issue and hash it out, coming back to the county with a recommendation. Bruce Fishalow, an executive with the Humane Society, who, along with Norman, ended up on the task force, commented, ObTether panel set up PLEASESEEDOGS, PAGE3 Sheriffs office seeks candy for HalloweenThe Marion County Sheriffs Office Southwest District is making its annual appeal for candy donations for Halloween.

Governor announces major springs improvement projects Wednesday, Governor Rick Scott announced 10 water quality, and water quantity, springs improvement projects. Funding for the spring projects was leveraged from a $10 million investment from the Florida Families First Budget, more than $1 million from Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) funding, and investments from local partners, for a total of nearly $37 million for springs projects. The governor made the announcement at Wekiwa Springs State Park, where he was joined by water management officials, and state and local leaders. The announcement comes on the heels of last weeks commitment of more than $130 million to restore estuaries in South Florida. Scott said, Today, were announcing important steps were taking to protect and restore springs throughout the Sunshine State. Floridas springs are important to animal and plant life, and help support Floridas booming tourism industry. This $10 million investment from the Florida Families First Budget will enable state and local partners to protect the quality and quantity of water that flows from our springs.
