Blair spoke of what he had uncovered when he took office earlier this year. He said that cuts were constantly being made and that it was affecting the quality of coverage provided to the citizens of Marion County. We are seriously hurting, he said. He said that based on the state average of the number of deputies per population, we are 170 behind how did that happen? In the new budget, which was to be decided Thursday, he asks for 20 deputies, 15 corrections officers and five assistants to be added. Blair said the starting salary for deputies of about $28,000 is lower than neighboring counties. Weve got to have good people, he added. He said that 86 percent of the fleet includes vehicles from 2008 or lower. He said 164 patrol cars have 100,000 miles on them and 88 have more than 150,000 miles. The deputy sheriffs are driving in dangerous vehicles. I have a safety issue. He said that he reduced two stations, put the commanders on shift work, and noted that commanders are picking up the slack by answering calls. He said that Fire Rescue had to wait 500 times last year for a deputy to show up on a scene before they could enter a dwelling. This occurs when the caller indicates there has been some sort of violence when calling for an ambulance. Rescue personnel cant enter without a deputy present. He spoke of adding a warrants division which has reduced the number of active warrants by 2,000. He said that if he had his way, he would remove juveniles from the jail and give custody back to the Department of Juvenile Justice. He also got rid of silent dispatch, where deputies had to read a screen in their cars to get information about a call. Citing a new state ban on texting while driving, he said he wanted the deputies to be able to keep their eyes on the road when answering a call. He was asked about privatizing the jail, but said that would be a disadvantage. He said Marion Countys jail shows that it takes $46.20 per day to house a prisoner, a lot cheaper than anywhere else in the state. He said it was important to keep the corrections officers under the sheriff. They wear the sheriffs star, and they want to maintain wearing the star. 28~ Friday, September 13, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Sheriff to Coalition: We need more $$ PHOTO BY JIM CLARKWalk of HopeThe Walk of Hope to fight domestic violence took place Saturday morning, starting at the Ocala Police Dept.

Burglars stealing electronics Two stores specializing in electronics on State Road 200 were burglarized recently. Best Buy Mobile at 27th Avenue was burglarized over the weekend and it is believed that more than $120,000 worth of electronics were taken. Video shows four people took part in the theft. On Monday morning, the AT&T store in the 4400 block of SR 200 was burglarized, and about $14,000 in items were taken. The Ocala Police Dept. is investigating both incidents. Reports say the police do not believe the two burglaries are related, although both occurred on the same wekend.

Suncoast Blvd. (US 19) A block and a half south of Ft. Island Trail What are Hearing Aid Channels and Bands? Two of the most important characteristics of hearing aids are Channels and Bands which are also some of the most misunderstood by users. To start off with, the number of channels or bands has nothing to do with the number of programs or volume settings. Sounds are processed and amplified by a hearing aid based on frequencies (or the pitch of a sound) and volumes. A peek at your audiogram will tell you how much amplification you need for any given frequency. In a nutshell, bands and channels thus determine how granular a hearing aid can process and amplify the sounds it perceives. To quote a great explanation from Philips: A band is what is used to control volume in different frequencies. This allows us to adjust more volume in a specific area of your hearing loss without effecting other areas where you might need less volume The more bands the hearing aid offers the more room we have to fit the aid to your hearing loss. Channels break up the frequency range into individual channels. This allows the hearing aid to differentiate noise from speech. The more channels the hearing aid has the more fine tuned it can be. For instance the sound of keys falling on a table, or water running in the sink may be overwhelming. When your hearing aid offers many channels we can adjust each frequency that is too loud without sacrificing the things you want to hear, like your spouse or boss. Thus, just the way a high-resolution picture gives you a sharper image, more bands and channels provide you with a more granular sound quality. More channels will provide better resolution on the frequencies and more bands will mean better resolution on the volume thus allowing your hearing aid to match your audiogram more accurately. 000FXZN 000FXHU 000FXHU www.pearsonnissanofocala.com 2060 Sw College Rd.

ButterfliesRecently I received an email asking me to let our residents know about some programs coming up to support Hospice of Marion County. Because of the work they do and the help they have been to so many of our Cherrywood family, I agreed to offer what little support I could. On Wednesday, Sept. 25 from 1 until 4 p.m. in the Hospice Education Center; 3231 S.W. 3th4 Ave., Edith Smith will conduct a seminar on Butterflies from A to Z. Ms Smith is owner of Shady Oak Butterfly Farm in Brooker and is a renowned expert on the subject of butterflies. During this seminar, Edith will teach how to build a basic butterfly garden habitat; basic butterfly lifecycle and facts and how to create a butterfly garden container. This seminar should be of special interest to our Garden Club and all of those who like working in the yard. Pre-registration is required. The cost is just $25 which includes seminar; butterfly host plant and refreshments. Your registration also includes a visit to a custom designed interactive butterfly garden with more than 250 butterflies and host plants. Proceeds will benefit the Childrens Bereavement Program of Hospice. Call Lisa Varner at 352-8545218 and sign up for this great educational experience.

This class will teach you how to use paints and explore your talents; develop your abilities and inspire you to even bigger works. The workshop is only $40 person and well worth the money. Contact Geri to get your name on the list to take part in this interesting and fun class. From your reporter Last week, a special event took place in our family. My daughter who was always called Sweet pea got a new moniker; she is now Nana. She became a grandmother to a beautiful baby girl named Lucy. All of the reports her Mom and I received were that the baby was good as gold; hardly cried at all and is too sweet for words. I tried to warn the parents that this was just a trick by the little one so that they would take her home with them. Of course, they didnt listen. Naturally, my daughter went to the store and bought all of the equipment new babies require. It was then I informed her that the reason they are called grand kids is that it costs you a grand every time to you see them. It then dawned on me that my daughter is a grandma which means I am now sleeping with a great grandmother. 35 years ago I would have shuddered at the thought of that. Today, its not so bad.

On May 24 of that year, Happ abducted 21-yearold Angela Crowley from a parking lot in Crystal River where she was making a call from a pay phone. Happ took the victim to the Cross Florida Barge Canal, where he brutally beat, sexually battered, and strangled her to death with her own clothes, and dumped her body into the canal. Several months passed before police connected Happ to the Crowley murder. By the time of his arrest, Happ had begun serving a prison sentence in California for an unrelated armed robbery and kidnapping.

Friday, September 13, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, September 13, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Aspects favor new romances for unpaired Ewes and Rams. Already paired Arian twosomes experience renewed harmony in their relationships. Money matters also take a bright turn. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Use that strong Bovine determination to help you keep the faith with your convictions while you move through a period of uncertainty. Things begin to ease by the weeks end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Pay attention to your intuition. It could be alerting you to be more careful about accepting a statement of fact simply on trust. Dont be shy about asking for more proof. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Concern for the well-being of someone in need is admirable. But dont forget to take care of yourself as well. Ask a family member, close friend or colleague to help you. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Its OK to focus on the demands of your career. But try to avoid misunderstandings by also reaching out to family and friends. Your sharp intuitive sense kicks in by midweek. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Keep a rein on that green-eyed monster. Jealousy is counterproductive. Instead of resenting a colleagues good points, concentrate on developing your own abilities. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Spending time on a creative project during this high-energy week can pay off both in emotional satisfaction and in impressing someone who is glad to see this side of you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Now is a good time to start planning that trip youve put off because of the demands on your time. Be sure to choose a destination that is new and exciting. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) That upbeat mood in the first part of the week makes you eager to take on new ventures. A more serious note sets in later to help you assess an upcoming decision. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A high energy level gives the Goat the get-upand-go to finish outstanding tasks before deadline, leaving time for wellearned fun and games with friends and family. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Dealing with disappointment is never easy. But the wise Aquarian will use it as a vital lesson and be the better for it. A close friend has something important to say. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Best bet is not to get involved in an argument between colleagues until you know more about who started it and why. And even then, appearances could be deceiving. Be alert. BORN THIS WEEK: You have creative gifts that inspire those who get to see this sometimes-hidden side of you.

Friday, September 13, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 13, 2013 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenEven if everything Secretary of State John Kerry says about chemical weapons in Syria were true, the evidence would prove only that Bashar al-Assad committed crimes against civilians. It would not prove that the U.S. government has either the moral or legal authority to commit acts of war. These issues must be kept separate. We have reason to be skeptical of Kerrys case why did President Obama try to stop the UN inspection? but if it were otherwise, the case for U.S. military intervention still would not have been made even if authorized by Congress. No one appointed the United States the worlds policeman. The governments founding document, the Constitution, does not and could not do so. Obama and Kerry have tried hard to invoke national security as grounds for bombing Syria, but no one believes Assad threatens us. He has made no such statements and taken no actions. He is engulfed in a sectarian civil war. Inexcusably, Obama has taken sides in that civil war the same side as the Syrian al-Qaeda affiliate but still Assad poses no danger to Americans. Bombing would make him more not less of a threat. As it interferes in other peoples conflicts, a self-appointed world policemen will breed resentment and a lust for revenge. No one likes a bully, especially when its a presumptuous superpower armed with nuclear warheads and monstrous conventional weapons. (By the way, Assads conventional weapons have killed far more people than sarin gas has.) You might ask, How could U.S. punishment of Assad be equated with being a bully? Isnt he the bully? To be sure, Assad is a criminal. But the U.S. governments record on the worlds stage hardly qualifies it for any merit badges. It rails against Assads brutality, but it backed Iraqs late president Saddam Hussein, even when he used chemical weapons in the 1980s. It condoned the Egyptian militarys mowing down of over a thousand street demonstrators after the recent coup, and it has more than tacitly approved Israels string of onslaughts against the Palestinians and Lebanese. In these cases, presidents could have properly responded by ending military aid but they refused. Similarly, the U.S. government for decades provided advanced weaponry to brutal and corrupt monarchies in the Arab world and autocrats in Asia and Latin America. More often than not, when a government represses its population, it uses items made here. Americas selective outrage is not lost on the world. The U.S. government is neither an honest broker nor an avenger of the victims of injustice. It is the worlds hamhanded hegemon, with overriding geopolitical and economic interests that determine what it does in any circumstance. Assad is a suitable foe, not because he is uniquely cruel hardly but because Russia and Iran are his allies. American foreign policy in the Middle East has long been dedicated to guaranteeing that no country can challenge U.S./Israeli hegemony. American presidents have no problem with strongmen who crush their peoples dreams of freedom, as long as those rulers do what they are told. But if they dont toe the line, watch out. Saddam Hussein and Libyas Muammar Qadaffi learned that the hard way. Now its Assads turn (earlier in the war on terror, the CIA outsourced torture services to him), even if that means helping al-Qaeda in Syria. Its not just that no one appointed the United States the worlds policeman. By assuming that role, the U.S. government no matter whos president undermines the values we claim to uphold, such as freedom, justice, privacy, and peace. The invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan left hundreds of thousands dead, many more gravely wounded, and corrupt authoritarian governments in control of the social wreckage. The law of unintended consequences cannot be repealed, and the risk is no less with interventions that begin modestly, because no one can say what the other side which includes Iran and Russia will do. At home, a perpetual war footing drains our pockets, puts us at risk of retaliation, violates our privacy, and distorts our economy through the military-industrial complex. James Madison understood well: No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare. When you drive west (or south) on State Road 200, after you cross County Road 484 and you head toward Hernando, you pass Florida Highlands and Spruce Creek Preserve in Marion County before you get to the river. So ask yourself the question: What town am I in? You might think youre still in Ocala, but according to the U.S. Postal Service, youre in Dunnellon. Thats right. The city that is 12 miles west of SR 200 along CR 484 sprawls all the way down 200 or at least thats what the post office says. Im sure that the people who live down that way shop along State Road 200 in Ocala; they go to the doctor on State Road 200 in Ocala; they go to restaurants on State Road 200; they attend entertainment events on State Road 200 in Ocala and, yes, when they go to the post office, they probably go to the one off 60th Avenue. But the post office says they live in Dunnellon. Im thinking that this came about many, many years ago when Ocala ended at around 27th Avenue. The rest of 200 was a twolane road with farms on either side and no sign of retail, medical or recreational facilities. There wasnt even an Interstate highway. The nearest town to the intersection of 200 and 484 was Dunnellon, so thats where the mail center for that area was. But along came the pretty much uncontrolled growth along 200, all the way to that intersection and beyond. And, even later, came the new post office on 60th Avenue, built to serve this area. But for some reason, the area south of 484 was still called Dunnellon. Im sure that, quite often, the people who live down that way have to explain to friends why their mailing address is in Dunnellon. Just to make things a little more confusing, the Marion County Sheriffs Office recently reorganized its district offices. The area south of 484 is now handled by deputies based in Marion Oaks. Im reasonably sure that these folks, if they have some business to transact, dont drive all the way to Marion Oaks, when the Southwest District office is just a couple of miles up the road. The quality of deputies, Im reasonably sure, is the same, but the distance they have to travel is not. At the same time, the Southwest office now covers all the way up into the northwest area. The comment was made at a recent town meeting with county commissioners that the meeting, while attended by the commander of the closest sheriffs office, was actually in the Southwest District, all the way up within viewing distance of U.S. Highway 27. All this is enough to make a geography buffs head spin. So the next time somebody tells you they live off State Road 200 in Dunnellon, dont look at them like theyre a little strange. The strange ones here are actually the postal authorities who make these decisions, and maybe they ought to look at a map once in a while.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

The voters have sent some messages, in more ways than one, to the politicians of America, on the eve of the anniversary of 9/11. In New York, two sex-scandal subjects, former Gov. Eliot Spitzer and former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, were rejected by what are usually liberal city voters. Weiner was in a crowded Democratic primary for mayor, and lost badly, getting only about 5 percent of the vote, while Spitzer was denied the chance to become city comptroller. Two other city politicians who had been linked to some sort of sex scandals lost in bids for the City Council. In Colorado, reacting to the shootings at a movie theater in Aurora, legislators had passed a new tough gun control law, much to the dismay of the gun advocates. On Tuesday, recall elections against two of the Democrats in the state Senate were successful, replacing the two, including the Senate president, with Republicans. Democrats control both houses and the governorship, but now have only a one-vote margin in the Senate. Some argued that the election was expensive and unnecessary, since one of the senators would be up for reelection next year and the other would have been out because of term limits. But the voters didnt wait, and both men are out of a job. And then theres President Barack Obama. The president spoke to the nation on Tuesday night and, after seeming so sure of himself a couple of weeks ago regarding military action against Syria, backpedaled somewhat and asked Congress to delay voting on giving him permission to act. He said he was willing to back a diplomatic solution. He also said that he felt action was justified, but backed the Constitutional form of government and asked for Congressional approval. He cited several communications from the American public, noting one said that we shouldnt be the worlds policeman and he agreed. He promised that no matter what action was taken, he would not put boots on the ground in Syria. So some New York City politicians and a couple of Colorado politicians learned the hard way that you have to listen to the voters. President Obama, to his credit, acknowledged the same as he spoke. The voters all across the country are continuously sending messages to their elected officials. The people who were put in office by the voters should all learn to listen.

It has occurred to me that a very talented singer could do a rewrite of the lyrics and have a smash hit with a new song, Finger Pointin Time...because that is happening all over our country. Violence is escalating, why? Ive heard numerous excuses...ah...I mean reasons. Thus far, its the parents fault, its the violence in games, films, and television. Then, there is the philosophy, that it is the teachers fault. Oh yes, we cannot leave out, its gun owners fault. Point a finger everywhere or anywhere, except where it belongs. I believe the primary Finger Pointin Time lies with The Supremes, and I am not referring to the singing trio, but those who rule in a building where The Ten Commandants are etched.

BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comFor the first time, the Entertainment Group show series is a complete tribute to some of the icons of show business. Doctors Challa and Kandru open the series on Friday, Oct. 25, at 7 p.m. in the H & R Ballroom, presenting the combined Donna Moore and the Shawn Dunning Show. Donna and her impressions of Las Vegas super stars and country legends are done to absolute perfection, and some of her friends she will be bringing with her could include Janice Joplin, Petula Clark, Bette Midler, Connie Francis, Liza, Tammy Wynette and Loretta Lynn. Dunning hails from Michigan and has a full vocal range and versatility that has earned him the name the man with a thousand voices. His range is from Roy Orbison to Neil Diamond, and believe it or not, Patsy Cline. He has been the opening act many times for such stars as Willie Nelson, Wayne Newton, and Mel Tillis, to name a few stars. Dunning closes his show with a hilarious Fat Elvis. Tickets go on sale Sept. 20 from 8:30 to 10 a.m. and every M-W-F thereafter. Thanks to Doctors Challa and Kandru, ticket prices remain $8 for general seating and $10 reserved seating, with a maximum of four tickets per purchase; tickets are for OTOW residents only.

Friday, September 13, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, September 13, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Iguess I am one of those old-fashioned guys still wearing a suit. I have been wearing a suit and tie for as long as I can remember, which really isnt saying a great deal. Not much I can remember these days, which is one of the advantages of growing older. When the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage grills me about some incident that did or did not happen, I can always rely on the good old faithful, I just cant remember! Well, she stammers as she stares at me, but dont let it happen again. My problem is I cannot remember what I am supposed to remember so how can I remember not to let it happen again? (Sigh.) So, my memory is not quite up to par in many areas. One area has to do with my suits. There is only one thing I do not like about my suits. I feel most comfortable in the suit and so I have several suits that I wear on a rotating basis. Naturally, they all look alike so nobody knows I am rotating my suits. The secret to rotating suits is to have an assortment of ties, but make sure those ties do not look alike. I have enough ties that I do not have to wear one for up to three months. I have a bright pink tie I wear twice a year and every time I wear it, several people ask me if I got a new necktie. I always smile and nod in the affirmative. Why spoil a good moment? The negative side of wearing suits is occasionally you have to replace them. There are all sorts of reasons why a suit needs to be replaced. One is that you grow out of it or it grows out of you. Either way the suit has to be replaced. Another reason is that something happened to the suit and there is some tear necessitating the whole suit being replaced. The key here is not to let my wife know that there is a small tear in my suit. The moment she discovers the slightest tear, she begins her plan of having that suit replaced. For me, a tear is simply a tear. If it is in the rear of my suit jacket, I do not see it so it is no concern to me. If other people are inconvenienced by a small tear in the back of my suit coat, let them replace the suit. I can deal with all kinds of tear oddities about my suit. Not so in the case of my wife. Even a slightly worn spot on my suit coat, begins her thinking of replacing it. Believe me; I try to hide it as much as possible to keep it from the ever-piercing eyes of my wife who sees through everything, even things that are not there. Just recently, despite my attempts to conceal the issue, my wife spotted a small tear on my suit coat. It happened to be my favorite suit coat. I can recall exactly when and how the split occurred. I kept that information away from my wife as long as I possibly could; now I had to pay the piper. Early Monday morning we were off to the mens store to purchase another suit. The whole way there, I was thinking of all the other things I could be doing at this time. Being the gracious and humble husband I am, I yielded to the prompting of my wife and we were off to the mens store. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted by a young man to which my wife said, Were here to buy a suit. I figured I better step in before the conversation got out of control. Were looking for a grey suit. I understand, said the young man as he thoughtfully pulled at his chin looking down the long row of suits. And what color grey are you looking for? Say what, I said. What color grey are you looking for? He repeated. As far as I was concerned, grey was grey and that was the color I was looking for. Nonetheless, I was in for a surprise. We have a variety of grey suits. There is a charcoal grey. Light grey. Dark grey. He went on and on about the variety of grey colors in his shop. If I heard correctly, according to him, there were at least 50 shades of grey. Believe me, there was not anything romantic about that! All I wanted was a grey suit. To me, grey is grey is grey. I do not want my suit to be a fashion statement. In fact, I want my suit to be silent and say nothing at all. We walked out of the mens store with a new suit and my wife had a wonderful smile on her face. I on the other hand, had a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach realizing just how much this grey suit cost me. I have a new appreciation for what the apostle Paul said. That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man (Ephesians 3:16 KJV). It is not the outside that really matters, but the inside of a man. Fifty Shades of Grey ... suits Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, Sept. 19, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. Meetings are open to everyone in the community so you dont have to be a member to attend. We welcome back any snowbirds that have returned from their summer break. Our September meeting is especially important because we have a lot of business to discuss, including fundraising activities for the fall and winter. Please give us a call at 352-362-0985 if you would like more information about our meetings or have any other questions for us.Adoption NewsWe have been saying for quite some time that we wanted our foster cats Coco and Panda to be adopted together because they have grown up in foster care together and are best friends. However, at this point we really need to get each one a home, so we will adopt them out separately to the appropriate family or person. So if youve been thinking about adding one cat to your family, please consider one of them now. Coco is the larger male, tipping the scale at a robust 13 pounds. Hes a big, rolly polly lover-boy, wholl curl up with you in bed and protect you from those nasty thunderstorms we seem to be having daily (or maybe youll be the one protecting him hes such a baby). Panda is a little bitty 8-pound girl who would prefer some peace and quiet in her new home, especially if she goes without Coco. To Panda, peace and quiet means no kids or dogs so she can have you all to herself. Thunderstorms will also find Panda in bed with you, where she will give you cuddle lessons. Please give Arlene a call at 352-875-9761 to meet them to see which one is right for you. If youve wanted to help the SPCA in some way, the most important thing you can do right now is bring one of these deserving kitties into your loving home.Sheltering Hands needs volunteersA training session for the Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) program will be held on Saturday, Sept. 14 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Sheriffs substation at 9048 State Road 200 (near Oak Run). Sheltering Hands needs volunteers for a partial or full day when the cats are neutered. You can choose to help out with the surgeries, or can help with emails and other administrative work. You can call Sheltering Hands at (352) 817-0663 or visit their website at shelteringhands.com to find out more. This is a great way for those who care about cat welfare in the community to help out.Back to the Wild needs donationsAt last months meeting we had two special guest speakers, Cheryl and Hans Norman, from the Back to the Wild wildlife rescue in Dunnellon. They brought two of their charges with them, infant raccoons Xena and Flirt, who wowed the crowd with their adorableness. The petite raccoons were wonderful ambassadors for their species, as they let us touch their little feet that feel like velvet, but have 80 times more sensory cells than a human fingertip. They also have five fingers like a human hand. Back to the Wild is a labor of love for the Normans. They save about 400 injured or orphaned raccoons a year. All of them are vaccinated against rabies and distemper before they are released back into the wild. Generally, they are released after about six months. Two months prior to release, the raccoons are put in outside cages to learn the language of the wild raccoons before they are set free. Other animals they handle are squirrels, opossums, skunks, armadillos, fawns, bats, foxes and coyotes. All these animals are wormed and receive antibiotics if needed. This is also a no-kill shelter. Many animals still hang around for months after release until they feel secure enough to permanently leave what they know as home. These animals still need to be fed and this greatly increases the food bill. Baby animals are bottle fed three times a day. You can imagine the cost of an enterprise like this, and they depend solely upon tax deductable donations to survive. You can send checks payable to BTTW, Inc to Back to the Wild, Inc., P O. Box 2653, Dunnellon, FL 34430. You can also call them at 352-489-3200 or visit their website at BackToTheWildInc.com. They can also use equipment such as cages, carriers, traps and medical supplies. It is better for the organization to purchase their own food due to the special diets many of the animals require. We often dont give our wild animal friends a second thought, thinking that they can fend for themselves. But thank goodness for wildlife rescue groups like Back to the Wild. They even move road kill from the middle of the street so that other curious animals wont enter the street and get hit. Also consider that the rabies vaccinations reduce the communicability of the disease around our area and protects all of us.Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

PLEASESEERELIGION, PAGE11 THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS By Vanessa Diffenbaugh Language presents a raw portrait of a young girl so abused and broken that at age 9 shes run out of foster homes to take her. But a woman named Elizabeth is up for the challenge that Victoria Jones dishes out. Elizabeth is calm and loving but tough when she needs to be. The child is angry, aloof, suspicious and most of all distrustful. She withholds affection from the caring Elizabeth because she believes her new foster mother is harboring a secret. And shes right. The novel cross-cuts between two time periods when Victoria is 9 and in line for adoption and as a young adult of 18, a runaway often living on the streets. Readers must wait for what seems an agonizing time to discover what happened between Elizabeth and Victoria on the eve of the adoption process. A childhood so unbearable would be hard reading but for the leavening effect of flowers and their secret language. Elizabeth starts Victoria on a life-long intense interest in cataloging flowers and discussing their meanings. Then, as a teenager sleeping outdoors and going hungry she attracts the attention of a florist named Renata who hires her part-time until she stumbles on Victorias talent for matching flowers with people. Almost overnight shes in demand and making money. Later, on a flower farm Grant, the handsome young vendor, takes an interest in Victoria and their shared love of flower language that extends to their flirting. Im more of a thistle-peony-basil kind of girl, she tells him. Yet despite some good fortune adult Victoria still believes shes too damaged to learn how to love. She wants someone to explain how a woman incapable of giving love could ever be expected to be a mother, a good one. The emotional message of Diffenbaughs debut novel appears to be that a sensitive, unfortunate girl who cant bear to be touchedstill yearns for a family.

Recited by community members who have experienced the deathGod forbidof a parent, sibling, spouse or child, Yizkor gives space to remember ones loved ones communally on a day that emphasizes communal unity and personal growth. Rabbi Yossi Hecht will lead Yizkor at The Chabad Jewish Center on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 12:30 p.m., which is Yom Kippur morning. Services for the day begin at 10 a.m. All community members who wish to attend Yizkor are welcome to join the community in remembering their loved ones.(Services and Yizkor are free of charge and no membership is required) Yom Kippur is the day when God forgives all of the Jewish peoples sins, both as individuals and as communities. By the same token, Jews around the world will spend the day in prayer atoning for their sins, thanking God for his forgiveness and focusing on self-improvement for the year to come. Because of the days importance, Jews focus on prayer so much that they do not eat, drink, or do work. Yizkor adds to the days solemnity and brings community members together as they begin a new year. (For more about Yom Kippur or Yizkor please visit our website www.JewishMarion.org) The Yizkor service is one of many Chabad Holiday programs, which give Jews the opportunity to perform Jewish holiday rituals and remember their ancestors. Yizkor is one of the most powerful moments of Yom Kippur said Rabbi Yossi Hecht, who will lead the Yizkor service. The memorial service allows community members to make space for lost loved ones on this important day, and to remember those family members as a new year begins. Yizkor allows me to connect not just with my family, but also with family members who are no longer with us, said Mr. David S. Yizkor puts Yom Kippur in perspective: As we move forward in our lives, it allows us to look back and know where we came from. Yom Kippur Services will be Friday, Sept. 13, 7:30 p.m. Kol Nidrei. Saturday, Sept. 14, Morning Services 10 a.m., Yizkor Service 12:30 p.m., Mincha and Neilah 6 p.m., followed by refreshments.

Odd Day is celebrated every other year on Sept. 13. Its a great day to root for the odds-onfavorite, read the Wizard of Odds, watch reruns of the Odd Couple, look for sea odders, find that missing odd sock, and read some odd Pun Alley stories. Of course, we must include some odds n ends.OddityWhen a rather odd couple gave birth to a son they named him Odd. When Odd went to school all of his classmates teased him because of his name. He got married and lived and worked a farm, since he could not take being around people teasing him about his name. When Odd became old he told his wife that he was fed up from going through life with his name. He told her when he died that she should not put his name on his headstone, only the date he was born and the date he died. When he died, his wife wanted to honor his wishes and purchased his headstone with no name engraved; just the date he was born and the date he died. Today when mourners visit the cemetery, they walk by and look at his headstone and see there is no name on the headstone, then they always say, Isnt that odd?Leave the driving to usAs you well know, some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities on our way home from the odd social session over the years. A couple of nights ago, John was out for a few drinks with some friends and had a few too many bubbles and some rather nice chardonnay. Knowing full well he may have been slightly over the limit, he did something he had never done before. John took a bus home. He arrived home safely and without incident, which was a real surprise, as he had never driven a bus before and is not sure where he got it from. Odd weddingHow did the wedding go? asked the ministers wife. Just fine until I got to the part where I asked the bride if she would obey and she said, Do you think Im nuts? and the groom said, I do, and then things really began to happen fast.Soft on menThe software engineering field is staffed primarily by men. In fact, the ratio of male to female software engineers is about 10 to 1. This makes it pretty easy for women to find potential mates among their peers. However, software types have a well-earned reputation for being a little strange. While discussing the prospect of working in the software industry, one woman commented to another, The odds are good, but the goods are odd.Odds n endsUCLA economists report households of registered Democrats use less electricity than homes of registered Republicans. This is odd because the Democrats are in power. The end is what usually justifies the diet. Colleges often have an end in view when they lower their entrance requirements, or a halfback or quarterback. When the roulette player bet odd, he got even. To a woman the first kiss is just the end of the beginning; to a man it is the beginning of the end. Old mountaineers never die; they just come to the end of their rope. A senior at LSU was overheard saying, When the end of the world comes, I hope to be in Louisiana. When asked why, he replied hed rather be in Louisiana because everything happens in Louisiana 20 years later than in the rest of the civilized world. Those who get too big for their britches will be exposed in the end.The beauty kitOn her fifteenth birthday, Toms daughter Mary opened a package from her mom and her sisters and out came a beauty case, containing many samples of makeup. Neat! Tom exclaimed. Your own tackle box! His wife calmly explained that it was not a tackle box, but it was a beauty kit. Mary proceeded to open it up and show everyone the mascara, eye shadow, rouge and other cosmetics. At this point, Tom leaned over to his wife and whispered, I told you it was a tackle box. Just look at all those lures!

Their combining of contemporary and traditional music are always well received and this party will feature German and American tunes to get everyone in the mood.

Tickets are free but they are required so be sure to see Geri ASAP to pick up yours.

You are sure to have a goot time.Bowlers start new seasonOn Monday, Aug. 26, the Cherrywood bowlers met in the clubhouse to organize for this years season of bowling fun at Galaxy West lanes in Ocala.

Teams were organized and a committee established to make recommendations for the season ending bowling banquet. It was decided that bowling would begin at 11:45 on Monday mornings starting on Sept. 9. There was an excited anticipation in the room as teams were selected and the participants laughed and chatted.

Friday, September 13, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, September 13, 2013 www.smcitizen.com At the Sept. 3 Tuesday Social, board Second Vice President John Alderson presented Bob and Donna Schmidt with the Marion Landing Volunteer Recognition Award. John introduced this couple as follows: It is my pleasure to present this months Volunteer Recognition Award to a very deserving and special couple. Together they are members of Marion Landing Patrol, Search, and the Community Emergency Response Team. They serve on the Senior Games Committee, and they coordinate and facilitate several of the games. They help set up our yearly yard sale and are active in league bowling and the shuffleboard tournaments. Several times a year they help in the kitchen at our Tuesday morning socials, always with a ready smile or a friendly handshake. She volunteers on the Sunshine Committee, helps out in the Library, and plays Bocce Ball; he has MCd our Tuesday morning socials and has also co-hosted. Residents of Marion Landing since 2008, their positive impact on the community was immediate, and continues today, as they are always willing to help when they can, whether it be for the good of Marion Landing or to assist or aid a fellow resident. They are truly an asset to our community. This months Volunteer Recognition Award goes to Bob and Donna Schmidt. The Schmidts engraved plaque will join the more than 160 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents who are nominated for the award by their peers. If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a Board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director.

PLEASESEELANDING, PAGE21 Marion Landing Diane Bress On Sunday at 4 p.m. the doors to the clubhouse opened for the second pizza party sponsored by the Activities Committee. Nearly twice as many people attended this special event in spite of it being held on a Sunday when the NFL was in season. Guests were treated to a variety of special pizzas made especially for the occasion by Joeys pizza. While Joeys isnt normally open on Sundays; they came in to make sure that everyone was treated to a fantastic pizza feast. Just to make things more interesting, they suffered a power outage but were still able to provide the delicious pizzas and salad. The meal was topped off with a wide assortment of tasty home made cookies thanks to the volunteers of our Activities Committee. These bakers included Sandra Weiss; Christl Giovanniello; Norma Alexander; Holly Bragdon; Midge Lee and Eve Houghtaling. 2 PM provided a great evening of entertainment playing a vast array of songs.

Friday, September 13, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, September 13, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Our theatre group has many couples as members, and two couples will be on stage together in The Wizard of Oz. JoAnn and Fred Veale comprise one of the couples. JoAnn has the role of Dorothy, and Fred has the dual roles of Uncle Henry and the Guard of Emerald City. In addition to being in the show, they are both on the set creation team and are busy building and painting. JoAnn started singing at an early age in the church choir. Although she never had any formal training, she landed a major singing and acting role as a teen in the Henry Street Settlement theatre production of The Emperors Nightingale. She studied tap and jazz, and was the choreographer for her high school and college plays. She danced the jive for the Harvest Moon Ball in New York City, and got to dance with Gregory Hines! Since being in Oak Run, JoAnn has performed with the dance troupes A Chorus Line and the Good Time Cloggers. She has performed with both the Showcase of Stars and Cant Help Singing as well as in the Way Off Broadway productions of In St. Louis at the Fair in the role of Sally, and in Squad Room Blues in the role of Gloria Garvey, the con artist / maid. Fred started in theatre at the age of 6 performing in The King and I and in South Pacific. As a youngster he danced with Sammy Davis, Jr., but never pursued his love of theatre until joining the cast of Way Off Broadways Squad Room Blues, playing Chester Garvey, con artist / psychic.

Nearly twice as many people attended this special event in spite of it being held on a Sunday when the NFL was in season. Guests were treated to a variety of special pizzas made especially for the occasion by Joeys pizza. While Joeys isnt normally open on Sundays; they came in to make sure that everyone was treated to a fantastic pizza feast. Just to make things more interesting, they suffered a power outage but were still able to provide the delicious pizzas and salad. The meal was topped off with a wide assortment of tasty home made cookies thanks to the volunteers of our Activities Committee. These bakers included Sandra Weiss; Christl Giovanniello; Norma Alexander; Holly Bragdon; Midge Lee and Eve Houghtaling. 2 PM provided a great evening of entertainment playing a vast array of songs.

Odd Day is celebrated every other year on Sept. 13. Its a great day to root for the odds-onfavorite, read the Wizard of Odds, watch reruns of the Odd Couple, look for sea odders, find that missing odd sock, and read some odd Pun Alley stories. Of course, we must include some odds n ends.OddityWhen a rather odd couple gave birth to a son they named him Odd. When Odd went to school all of his classmates teased him because of his name. He got married and lived and worked a farm, since he could not take being around people teasing him about his name. When Odd became old he told his wife that he was fed up from going through life with his name. He told her when he died that she should not put his name on his headstone, only the date he was born and the date he died. When he died, his wife wanted to honor his wishes and purchased his headstone with no name engraved; just the date he was born and the date he died. Today when mourners visit the cemetery, they walk by and look at his headstone and see there is no name on the headstone, then they always say, Isnt that odd?Leave the driving to usAs you well know, some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities on our way home from the odd social session over the years. A couple of nights ago, John was out for a few drinks with some friends and had a few too many bubbles and some rather nice chardonnay. Knowing full well he may have been slightly over the limit, he did something he had never done before. John took a bus home. He arrived home safely and without incident, which was a real surprise, as he had never driven a bus before and is not sure where he got it from. Odd weddingHow did the wedding go? asked the ministers wife. Just fine until I got to the part where I asked the bride if she would obey and she said, Do you think Im nuts? and the groom said, I do, and then things really began to happen fast.Soft on menThe software engineering field is staffed primarily by men. In fact, the ratio of male to female software engineers is about 10 to 1. This makes it pretty easy for women to find potential mates among their peers. However, software types have a well-earned reputation for being a little strange. While discussing the prospect of working in the software industry, one woman commented to another, The odds are good, but the goods are odd.Odds n endsUCLA economists report households of registered Democrats use less electricity than homes of registered Republicans. This is odd because the Democrats are in power. The end is what usually justifies the diet. Colleges often have an end in view when they lower their entrance requirements, or a halfback or quarterback. When the roulette player bet odd, he got even. To a woman the first kiss is just the end of the beginning; to a man it is the beginning of the end. Old mountaineers never die; they just come to the end of their rope. A senior at LSU was overheard saying, When the end of the world comes, I hope to be in Louisiana. When asked why, he replied hed rather be in Louisiana because everything happens in Louisiana 20 years later than in the rest of the civilized world. Those who get too big for their britches will be exposed in the end.The beauty kitOn her fifteenth birthday, Toms daughter Mary opened a package from her mom and her sisters and out came a beauty case, containing many samples of makeup. Neat! Tom exclaimed. Your own tackle box! His wife calmly explained that it was not a tackle box, but it was a beauty kit. Mary proceeded to open it up and show everyone the mascara, eye shadow, rouge and other cosmetics. At this point, Tom leaned over to his wife and whispered, I told you it was a tackle box. Just look at all those lures!

Recited by community members who have experienced the deathGod forbidof a parent, sibling, spouse or child, Yizkor gives space to remember ones loved ones communally on a day that emphasizes communal unity and personal growth. Rabbi Yossi Hecht will lead Yizkor at The Chabad Jewish Center on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 12:30 p.m., which is Yom Kippur morning. Services for the day begin at 10 a.m. All community members who wish to attend Yizkor are welcome to join the community in remembering their loved ones.(Services and Yizkor are free of charge and no membership is required) Yom Kippur is the day when God forgives all of the Jewish peoples sins, both as individuals and as communities. By the same token, Jews around the world will spend the day in prayer atoning for their sins, thanking God for his forgiveness and focusing on self-improvement for the year to come. Because of the days importance, Jews focus on prayer so much that they do not eat, drink, or do work. Yizkor adds to the days solemnity and brings community members together as they begin a new year. (For more about Yom Kippur or Yizkor please visit our website www.JewishMarion.org) The Yizkor service is one of many Chabad Holiday programs, which give Jews the opportunity to perform Jewish holiday rituals and remember their ancestors. Yizkor is one of the most powerful moments of Yom Kippur said Rabbi Yossi Hecht, who will lead the Yizkor service. The memorial service allows community members to make space for lost loved ones on this important day, and to remember those family members as a new year begins. Yizkor allows me to connect not just with my family, but also with family members who are no longer with us, said Mr. David S. Yizkor puts Yom Kippur in perspective: As we move forward in our lives, it allows us to look back and know where we came from. Yom Kippur Services will be Friday, Sept. 13, 7:30 p.m. Kol Nidrei. Saturday, Sept. 14, Morning Services 10 a.m., Yizkor Service 12:30 p.m., Mincha and Neilah 6 p.m., followed by refreshments.

PLEASESEERELIGION, PAGE11 THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS By Vanessa Diffenbaugh Language presents a raw portrait of a young girl so abused and broken that at age 9 shes run out of foster homes to take her. But a woman named Elizabeth is up for the challenge that Victoria Jones dishes out. Elizabeth is calm and loving but tough when she needs to be. The child is angry, aloof, suspicious and most of all distrustful. She withholds affection from the caring Elizabeth because she believes her new foster mother is harboring a secret. And shes right. The novel cross-cuts between two time periods when Victoria is 9 and in line for adoption and as a young adult of 18, a runaway often living on the streets. Readers must wait for what seems an agonizing time to discover what happened between Elizabeth and Victoria on the eve of the adoption process. A childhood so unbearable would be hard reading but for the leavening effect of flowers and their secret language. Elizabeth starts Victoria on a life-long intense interest in cataloging flowers and discussing their meanings. Then, as a teenager sleeping outdoors and going hungry she attracts the attention of a florist named Renata who hires her part-time until she stumbles on Victorias talent for matching flowers with people. Almost overnight shes in demand and making money. Later, on a flower farm Grant, the handsome young vendor, takes an interest in Victoria and their shared love of flower language that extends to their flirting. Im more of a thistle-peony-basil kind of girl, she tells him. Yet despite some good fortune adult Victoria still believes shes too damaged to learn how to love. She wants someone to explain how a woman incapable of giving love could ever be expected to be a mother, a good one. The emotional message of Diffenbaughs debut novel appears to be that a sensitive, unfortunate girl who cant bear to be touchedstill yearns for a family.

BY ELOISE HOLLYFIELD ejh2025@gmail.comFor the first time, the Entertainment Group show series is a complete tribute to some of the icons of show business. Doctors Challa and Kandru open the series on Friday, Oct. 25, at 7 p.m. in the H & R Ballroom, presenting the combined Donna Moore and the Shawn Dunning Show. Donna and her impressions of Las Vegas super stars and country legends are done to absolute perfection, and some of her friends she will be bringing with her could include Janice Joplin, Petula Clark, Bette Midler, Connie Francis, Liza, Tammy Wynette and Loretta Lynn. Dunning hails from Michigan and has a full vocal range and versatility that has earned him the name the man with a thousand voices. His range is from Roy Orbison to Neil Diamond, and believe it or not, Patsy Cline. He has been the opening act many times for such stars as Willie Nelson, Wayne Newton, and Mel Tillis, to name a few stars. Dunning closes his show with a hilarious Fat Elvis. Tickets go on sale Sept. 20 from 8:30 to 10 a.m. and every M-W-F thereafter.

Friday, September 13, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, September 13, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Iguess I am one of those old-fashioned guys still wearing a suit. I have been wearing a suit and tie for as long as I can remember, which really isnt saying a great deal. Not much I can remember these days, which is one of the advantages of growing older. When the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage grills me about some incident that did or did not happen, I can always rely on the good old faithful, I just cant remember! Well, she stammers as she stares at me, but dont let it happen again. My problem is I cannot remember what I am supposed to remember so how can I remember not to let it happen again? (Sigh.) So, my memory is not quite up to par in many areas. One area has to do with my suits. There is only one thing I do not like about my suits. I feel most comfortable in the suit and so I have several suits that I wear on a rotating basis. Naturally, they all look alike so nobody knows I am rotating my suits. The secret to rotating suits is to have an assortment of ties, but make sure those ties do not look alike. I have enough ties that I do not have to wear one for up to three months. I have a bright pink tie I wear twice a year and every time I wear it, several people ask me if I got a new necktie. I always smile and nod in the affirmative. Why spoil a good moment? The negative side of wearing suits is occasionally you have to replace them. There are all sorts of reasons why a suit needs to be replaced. One is that you grow out of it or it grows out of you. Either way the suit has to be replaced. Another reason is that something happened to the suit and there is some tear necessitating the whole suit being replaced. The key here is not to let my wife know that there is a small tear in my suit. The moment she discovers the slightest tear, she begins her plan of having that suit replaced. For me, a tear is simply a tear. If it is in the rear of my suit jacket, I do not see it so it is no concern to me. If other people are inconvenienced by a small tear in the back of my suit coat, let them replace the suit. I can deal with all kinds of tear oddities about my suit. Not so in the case of my wife. Even a slightly worn spot on my suit coat, begins her thinking of replacing it. Believe me; I try to hide it as much as possible to keep it from the ever-piercing eyes of my wife who sees through everything, even things that are not there. Just recently, despite my attempts to conceal the issue, my wife spotted a small tear on my suit coat. It happened to be my favorite suit coat. I can recall exactly when and how the split occurred. I kept that information away from my wife as long as I possibly could; now I had to pay the piper. Early Monday morning we were off to the mens store to purchase another suit. The whole way there, I was thinking of all the other things I could be doing at this time. Being the gracious and humble husband I am, I yielded to the prompting of my wife and we were off to the mens store. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted by a young man to which my wife said, Were here to buy a suit. I figured I better step in before the conversation got out of control. Were looking for a grey suit. I understand, said the young man as he thoughtfully pulled at his chin looking down the long row of suits. And what color grey are you looking for? Say what, I said. What color grey are you looking for? He repeated. As far as I was concerned, grey was grey and that was the color I was looking for. Nonetheless, I was in for a surprise. We have a variety of grey suits. There is a charcoal grey. Light grey. Dark grey. He went on and on about the variety of grey colors in his shop. If I heard correctly, according to him, there were at least 50 shades of grey. Believe me, there was not anything romantic about that! All I wanted was a grey suit. To me, grey is grey is grey. I do not want my suit to be a fashion statement. In fact, I want my suit to be silent and say nothing at all. We walked out of the mens store with a new suit and my wife had a wonderful smile on her face. I on the other hand, had a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach realizing just how much this grey suit cost me. I have a new appreciation for what the apostle Paul said. That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man (Ephesians 3:16 KJV). It is not the outside that really matters, but the inside of a man. Fifty Shades of Grey ... suits Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, Sept. 19, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. Meetings are open to everyone in the community so you dont have to be a member to attend. We welcome back any snowbirds that have returned from their summer break. Our September meeting is especially important because we have a lot of business to discuss, including fundraising activities for the fall and winter. Please give us a call at 352-362-0985 if you would like more information about our meetings or have any other questions for us.Adoption NewsWe have been saying for quite some time that we wanted our foster cats Coco and Panda to be adopted together because they have grown up in foster care together and are best friends. However, at this point we really need to get each one a home, so we will adopt them out separately to the appropriate family or person. So if youve been thinking about adding one cat to your family, please consider one of them now. Coco is the larger male, tipping the scale at a robust 13 pounds. Hes a big, rolly polly lover-boy, wholl curl up with you in bed and protect you from those nasty thunderstorms we seem to be having daily (or maybe youll be the one protecting him hes such a baby). Panda is a little bitty 8-pound girl who would prefer some peace and quiet in her new home, especially if she goes without Coco. To Panda, peace and quiet means no kids or dogs so she can have you all to herself. Thunderstorms will also find Panda in bed with you, where she will give you cuddle lessons. Please give Arlene a call at 352-875-9761 to meet them to see which one is right for you. If youve wanted to help the SPCA in some way, the most important thing you can do right now is bring one of these deserving kitties into your loving home.Sheltering Hands needs volunteersA training session for the Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) program will be held on Saturday, Sept. 14 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Sheriffs substation at 9048 State Road 200 (near Oak Run). Sheltering Hands needs volunteers for a partial or full day when the cats are neutered. You can choose to help out with the surgeries, or can help with emails and other administrative work. You can call Sheltering Hands at (352) 817-0663 or visit their website at shelteringhands.com to find out more. This is a great way for those who care about cat welfare in the community to help out.Back to the Wild needs donationsAt last months meeting we had two special guest speakers, Cheryl and Hans Norman, from the Back to the Wild wildlife rescue in Dunnellon. They brought two of their charges with them, infant raccoons Xena and Flirt, who wowed the crowd with their adorableness. The petite raccoons were wonderful ambassadors for their species, as they let us touch their little feet that feel like velvet, but have 80 times more sensory cells than a human fingertip. They also have five fingers like a human hand. Back to the Wild is a labor of love for the Normans. They save about 400 injured or orphaned raccoons a year. All of them are vaccinated against rabies and distemper before they are released back into the wild. Generally, they are released after about six months. Two months prior to release, the raccoons are put in outside cages to learn the language of the wild raccoons before they are set free. Other animals they handle are squirrels, opossums, skunks, armadillos, fawns, bats, foxes and coyotes. All these animals are wormed and receive antibiotics if needed. This is also a no-kill shelter. Many animals still hang around for months after release until they feel secure enough to permanently leave what they know as home. These animals still need to be fed and this greatly increases the food bill. Baby animals are bottle fed three times a day. You can imagine the cost of an enterprise like this, and they depend solely upon tax deductable donations to survive. You can send checks payable to BTTW, Inc to Back to the Wild, Inc., P O. Box 2653, Dunnellon, FL 34430. You can also call them at 352-489-3200 or visit their website at BackToTheWildInc.com. They can also use equipment such as cages, carriers, traps and medical supplies. It is better for the organization to purchase their own food due to the special diets many of the animals require. We often dont give our wild animal friends a second thought, thinking that they can fend for themselves. But thank goodness for wildlife rescue groups like Back to the Wild. They even move road kill from the middle of the street so that other curious animals wont enter the street and get hit. Also consider that the rabies vaccinations reduce the communicability of the disease around our area and protects all of us.Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

Friday, September 13, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 13, 2013 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenEven if everything Secretary of State John Kerry says about chemical weapons in Syria were true, the evidence would prove only that Bashar al-Assad committed crimes against civilians. It would not prove that the U.S. government has either the moral or legal authority to commit acts of war. These issues must be kept separate. We have reason to be skeptical of Kerrys case why did President Obama try to stop the UN inspection? but if it were otherwise, the case for U.S. military intervention still would not have been made even if authorized by Congress. No one appointed the United States the worlds policeman. The governments founding document, the Constitution, does not and could not do so. Obama and Kerry have tried hard to invoke national security as grounds for bombing Syria, but no one believes Assad threatens us. He has made no such statements and taken no actions. He is engulfed in a sectarian civil war. Inexcusably, Obama has taken sides in that civil war the same side as the Syrian al-Qaeda affiliate but still Assad poses no danger to Americans. Bombing would make him more not less of a threat. As it interferes in other peoples conflicts, a self-appointed world policemen will breed resentment and a lust for revenge. No one likes a bully, especially when its a presumptuous superpower armed with nuclear warheads and monstrous conventional weapons. (By the way, Assads conventional weapons have killed far more people than sarin gas has.) You might ask, How could U.S. punishment of Assad be equated with being a bully? Isnt he the bully? To be sure, Assad is a criminal. But the U.S. governments record on the worlds stage hardly qualifies it for any merit badges. It rails against Assads brutality, but it backed Iraqs late president Saddam Hussein, even when he used chemical weapons in the 1980s. It condoned the Egyptian militarys mowing down of over a thousand street demonstrators after the recent coup, and it has more than tacitly approved Israels string of onslaughts against the Palestinians and Lebanese. In these cases, presidents could have properly responded by ending military aid but they refused. Similarly, the U.S. government for decades provided advanced weaponry to brutal and corrupt monarchies in the Arab world and autocrats in Asia and Latin America. More often than not, when a government represses its population, it uses items made here. Americas selective outrage is not lost on the world. The U.S. government is neither an honest broker nor an avenger of the victims of injustice. It is the worlds hamhanded hegemon, with overriding geopolitical and economic interests that determine what it does in any circumstance. Assad is a suitable foe, not because he is uniquely cruel hardly but because Russia and Iran are his allies. American foreign policy in the Middle East has long been dedicated to guaranteeing that no country can challenge U.S./Israeli hegemony. American presidents have no problem with strongmen who crush their peoples dreams of freedom, as long as those rulers do what they are told. But if they dont toe the line, watch out. Saddam Hussein and Libyas Muammar Qadaffi learned that the hard way. Now its Assads turn (earlier in the war on terror, the CIA outsourced torture services to him), even if that means helping al-Qaeda in Syria. Its not just that no one appointed the United States the worlds policeman. By assuming that role, the U.S. government no matter whos president undermines the values we claim to uphold, such as freedom, justice, privacy, and peace. The invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan left hundreds of thousands dead, many more gravely wounded, and corrupt authoritarian governments in control of the social wreckage. The law of unintended consequences cannot be repealed, and the risk is no less with interventions that begin modestly, because no one can say what the other side which includes Iran and Russia will do. At home, a perpetual war footing drains our pockets, puts us at risk of retaliation, violates our privacy, and distorts our economy through the military-industrial complex. James Madison understood well: No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare. When you drive west (or south) on State Road 200, after you cross County Road 484 and you head toward Hernando, you pass Florida Highlands and Spruce Creek Preserve in Marion County before you get to the river. So ask yourself the question: What town am I in? You might think youre still in Ocala, but according to the U.S. Postal Service, youre in Dunnellon. Thats right. The city that is 12 miles west of SR 200 along CR 484 sprawls all the way down 200 or at least thats what the post office says. Im sure that the people who live down that way shop along State Road 200 in Ocala; they go to the doctor on State Road 200 in Ocala; they go to restaurants on State Road 200; they attend entertainment events on State Road 200 in Ocala and, yes, when they go to the post office, they probably go to the one off 60th Avenue. But the post office says they live in Dunnellon. Im thinking that this came about many, many years ago when Ocala ended at around 27th Avenue. The rest of 200 was a twolane road with farms on either side and no sign of retail, medical or recreational facilities. There wasnt even an Interstate highway. The nearest town to the intersection of 200 and 484 was Dunnellon, so thats where the mail center for that area was. But along came the pretty much uncontrolled growth along 200, all the way to that intersection and beyond. And, even later, came the new post office on 60th Avenue, built to serve this area. But for some reason, the area south of 484 was still called Dunnellon. Im sure that, quite often, the people who live down that way have to explain to friends why their mailing address is in Dunnellon. Just to make things a little more confusing, the Marion County Sheriffs Office recently reorganized its district offices. The area south of 484 is now handled by deputies based in Marion Oaks. Im reasonably sure that these folks, if they have some business to transact, dont drive all the way to Marion Oaks, when the Southwest District office is just a couple of miles up the road. The quality of deputies, Im reasonably sure, is the same, but the distance they have to travel is not. At the same time, the Southwest office now covers all the way up into the northwest area. The comment was made at a recent town meeting with county commissioners that the meeting, while attended by the commander of the closest sheriffs office, was actually in the Southwest District, all the way up within viewing distance of U.S. Highway 27. All this is enough to make a geography buffs head spin. So the next time somebody tells you they live off State Road 200 in Dunnellon, dont look at them like theyre a little strange. The strange ones here are actually the postal authorities who make these decisions, and maybe they ought to look at a map once in a while.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

The voters have sent some messages, in more ways than one, to the politicians of America, on the eve of the anniversary of 9/11. In New York, two sex-scandal subjects, former Gov. Eliot Spitzer and former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, were rejected by what are usually liberal city voters. Weiner was in a crowded Democratic primary for mayor, and lost badly, getting only about 5 percent of the vote, while Spitzer was denied the chance to become city comptroller. Two other city politicians who had been linked to some sort of sex scandals lost in bids for the City Council. In Colorado, reacting to the shootings at a movie theater in Aurora, legislators had passed a new tough gun control law, much to the dismay of the gun advocates. On Tuesday, recall elections against two of the Democrats in the state Senate were successful, replacing the two, including the Senate president, with Republicans. Democrats control both houses and the governorship, but now have only a one-vote margin in the Senate. Some argued that the election was expensive and unnecessary, since one of the senators would be up for reelection next year and the other would have been out because of term limits. But the voters didnt wait, and both men are out of a job. And then theres President Barack Obama. The president spoke to the nation on Tuesday night and, after seeming so sure of himself a couple of weeks ago regarding military action against Syria, backpedaled somewhat and asked Congress to delay voting on giving him permission to act. He said he was willing to back a diplomatic solution. He also said that he felt action was justified, but backed the Constitutional form of government and asked for Congressional approval. He cited several communications from the American public, noting one said that we shouldnt be the worlds policeman and he agreed. He promised that no matter what action was taken, he would not put boots on the ground in Syria. So some New York City politicians and a couple of Colorado politicians learned the hard way that you have to listen to the voters. President Obama, to his credit, acknowledged the same as he spoke. The voters all across the country are continuously sending messages to their elected officials. The people who were put in office by the voters should all learn to listen. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY U.S. voters send a message Someone show the post office a map We must not be the worlds policemen READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor LETTER TO THE EDITOR Liberal rulingsDuring the 1950s, there was a song titled Finger Poppin Time recorded by Hank Ballard and The Midnighters. It has occurred to me that a very talented singer could do a rewrite of the lyrics and have a smash hit with a new song, Finger Pointin Time...because that is happening all over our country. Violence is escalating, why? Ive heard numerous excuses...ah...I mean reasons. Thus far, its the parents fault, its the violence in games, films, and television. Then, there is the philosophy, that it is the teachers fault. Oh yes, we cannot leave out, its gun owners fault. Point a finger everywhere or anywhere, except where it belongs. I believe the primary Finger Pointin Time lies with The Supremes, and I am not referring to the singing trio, but those who rule in a building where The Ten Commandants are etched.

Friday, September 13, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, September 13, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Aspects favor new romances for unpaired Ewes and Rams. Already paired Arian twosomes experience renewed harmony in their relationships. Money matters also take a bright turn. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Use that strong Bovine determination to help you keep the faith with your convictions while you move through a period of uncertainty. Things begin to ease by the weeks end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Pay attention to your intuition. It could be alerting you to be more careful about accepting a statement of fact simply on trust. Dont be shy about asking for more proof. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Concern for the well-being of someone in need is admirable. But dont forget to take care of yourself as well. Ask a family member, close friend or colleague to help you. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Its OK to focus on the demands of your career. But try to avoid misunderstandings by also reaching out to family and friends. Your sharp intuitive sense kicks in by midweek. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Keep a rein on that green-eyed monster. Jealousy is counterproductive. Instead of resenting a colleagues good points, concentrate on developing your own abilities. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Spending time on a creative project during this high-energy week can pay off both in emotional satisfaction and in impressing someone who is glad to see this side of you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Dealing with disappointment is never easy. But the wise Aquarian will use it as a vital lesson and be the better for it. A close friend has something important to say. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Best bet is not to get involved in an argument between colleagues until you know more about who started it and why. And even then, appearances could be deceiving. Be alert. BORN THIS WEEK: You have creative gifts that inspire those who get to see this sometimes-hidden side of you.

On May 24 of that year, Happ abducted 21-yearold Angela Crowley from a parking lot in Crystal River where she was making a call from a pay phone. Happ took the victim to the Cross Florida Barge Canal, where he brutally beat, sexually battered, and strangled her to death with her own clothes, and dumped her body into the canal. Several months passed before police connected Happ to the Crowley murder. By the time of his arrest, Happ had begun serving a prison sentence in California for an unrelated armed robbery and kidnapping.

Friday, September 13, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4~ Friday, September 13, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Read the classifieds Line dancing classesOur own fitness guru Deb Rivera is now teaching line dancing classes in our clubhouse. These one hour classes started at 5 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 9 and will be continuing every Monday from then on with the exception of Sept. 16 because of Summer Fest. You can learn all the latest steps with a fun group of your neighbors. Classes are informal and relaxed but offer a great release of creative energy and talent. 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. Craft ShowOpen to the public, Cherrywood will be sponsoring its semi-annual Craft Show on Saturday, Oct. 12 from 9 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon. This is always a well attended event that showcases the creative talents of many local artisans. Shoppers are always welcome of course and dont worry about eating. Our Activities Committee will be offering light breakfast and sandwiches for lunch at a nominal fee so you can shop without having to break for a meal. Our Songbirds are back and are doing a bake sale. Remember, you dont have to be a Cherrywood resident to either be a vendor or a shopper. Singers wantedWe need singers to join our Songbirds. Especially male voices are needed to enhance this talented group of songsters as they travel around the county bringing cheer and inspiration to folks that need it. They perform at hospice; assisted living facilities; shopping malls and many other venues and their efforts are always well received. No matter what your experience or lack there of, you are welcome to join in. You can be a part of this fun group by coming out to practices on Wednesdays at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse. Everyone is welcome to take part. For more information and details please contact Aprile at 352-237-0924. ButterfliesRecently I received an email asking me to let our residents know about some programs coming up to support Hospice of Marion County. Because of the work they do and the help they have been to so many of our Cherrywood family, I agreed to offer what little support I could. On Wednesday, Sept. 25 from 1 until 4 p.m. in the Hospice Education Center; 3231 S.W. 3th4 Ave., Edith Smith will conduct a seminar on Butterflies from A to Z. Ms Smith is owner of Shady Oak Butterfly Farm in Brooker and is a renowned expert on the subject of butterflies. During this seminar, Edith will teach how to build a basic butterfly garden habitat; basic butterfly lifecycle and facts and how to create a butterfly garden container. This seminar should be of special interest to our Garden Club and all of those who like working in the yard. Pre-registration is required. The cost is just $25 which includes seminar; butterfly host plant and refreshments. Your registration also includes a visit to a custom designed interactive butterfly garden with more than 250 butterflies and host plants. Proceeds will benefit the Childrens Bereavement Program of Hospice. Call Lisa Varner at 352-8545218 and sign up for this great educational experience. Watercolor workshopJoin Rob Rodriguez on Thursday, Oct. 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31 to learn painting with watercolors. During this workshop you will paint two works; a still life and a landscape. This class will teach you how to use paints and explore your talents; develop your abilities and inspire you to even bigger works. The workshop is only $40 person and well worth the money. Contact Geri to get your name on the list to take part in this interesting and fun class. From your reporter Last week, a special event took place in our family. My daughter who was always called Sweet pea got a new moniker; she is now Nana. She became a grandmother to a beautiful baby girl named Lucy. All of the reports her Mom and I received were that the baby was good as gold; hardly cried at all and is too sweet for words. I tried to warn the parents that this was just a trick by the little one so that they would take her home with them. Of course, they didnt listen. Naturally, my daughter went to the store and bought all of the equipment new babies require. It was then I informed her that the reason they are called grand kids is that it costs you a grand every time to you see them. It then dawned on me that my daughter is a grandma which means I am now sleeping with a great grandmother. 35 years ago I would have shuddered at the thought of that. Today, its not so bad.

Suncoast Blvd. (US 19) A block and a half south of Ft. Island Trail What are Hearing Aid Channels and Bands? Two of the most important characteristics of hearing aids are Channels and Bands which are also some of the most misunderstood by users. To start off with, the number of channels or bands has nothing to do with the number of programs or volume settings. Sounds are processed and amplified by a hearing aid based on frequencies (or the pitch of a sound) and volumes. A peek at your audiogram will tell you how much amplification you need for any given frequency. In a nutshell, bands and channels thus determine how granular a hearing aid can process and amplify the sounds it perceives. To quote a great explanation from Philips: A band is what is used to control volume in different frequencies. This allows us to adjust more volume in a specific area of your hearing loss without effecting other areas where you might need less volume The more bands the hearing aid offers the more room we have to fit the aid to your hearing loss. Channels break up the frequency range into individual channels. This allows the hearing aid to differentiate noise from speech. The more channels the hearing aid has the more fine tuned it can be. For instance the sound of keys falling on a table, or water running in the sink may be overwhelming. When your hearing aid offers many channels we can adjust each frequency that is too loud without sacrificing the things you want to hear, like your spouse or boss. Thus, just the way a high-resolution picture gives you a sharper image, more bands and channels provide you with a more granular sound quality. More channels will provide better resolution on the frequencies and more bands will mean better resolution on the volume thus allowing your hearing aid to match your audiogram more accurately. 000FXZN 000FXHU 000FXHU www.pearsonnissanofocala.com 2060 Sw College Rd.

Blair spoke of what he had uncovered when he took office earlier this year. He said that cuts were constantly being made and that it was affecting the quality of coverage provided to the citizens of Marion County. We are seriously hurting, he said. He said that based on the state average of the number of deputies per population, we are 170 behind how did that happen? In the new budget, which was to be decided Thursday, he asks for 20 deputies, 15 corrections officers and five assistants to be added. Blair said the starting salary for deputies of about $28,000 is lower than neighboring counties. Weve got to have good people, he added. He said that 86 percent of the fleet includes vehicles from 2008 or lower. He said 164 patrol cars have 100,000 miles on them and 88 have more than 150,000 miles. The deputy sheriffs are driving in dangerous vehicles. I have a safety issue. He said that he reduced two stations, put the commanders on shift work, and noted that commanders are picking up the slack by answering calls. He said that Fire Rescue had to wait 500 times last year for a deputy to show up on a scene before they could enter a dwelling. This occurs when the caller indicates there has been some sort of violence when calling for an ambulance. Rescue personnel cant enter without a deputy present. He spoke of adding a warrants division which has reduced the number of active warrants by 2,000. He said that if he had his way, he would remove juveniles from the jail and give custody back to the Department of Juvenile Justice. He also got rid of silent dispatch, where deputies had to read a screen in their cars to get information about a call. Citing a new state ban on texting while driving, he said he wanted the deputies to be able to keep their eyes on the road when answering a call. He was asked about privatizing the jail, but said that would be a disadvantage. He said Marion Countys jail shows that it takes $46.20 per day to house a prisoner, a lot cheaper than anywhere else in the state. He said it was important to keep the corrections officers under the sheriff. They wear the sheriffs star, and they want to maintain wearing the star. 28~ Friday, September 13, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Sheriff to Coalition: We need more $$ PHOTO BY JIM CLARKWalk of HopeThe Walk of Hope to fight domestic violence took place Saturday morning, starting at the Ocala Police Dept.

Burglars stealing electronics Two stores specializing in electronics on State Road 200 were burglarized recently. Best Buy Mobile at 27th Avenue was burglarized over the weekend and it is believed that more than $120,000 worth of electronics were taken. Video shows four people took part in the theft. On Monday morning, the AT&T store in the 4400 block of SR 200 was burglarized, and about $14,000 in items were taken. The Ocala Police Dept. is investigating both incidents. Reports say the police do not believe the two burglaries are related, although both occurred on the same wekend.
