Arrested were Fares Rabah, 41; Ahmed Mohsin, 36 and Ahmad Warayat, 27. Each is charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance synthetic marijuana with intent to distribute, and possession of drug paraphernalia. As of Wednesday morning, the trio was being held in the County Jail under no bond. Rabah lists a Heath, Texas, address. The other two listed Tampa addresses. According to the report, on Monday evening, Lt. Dennis Joiner, commander of the Marion County Sheriffs Office Southwest District, received an anonymous tip concerning suspicious activity at a closed business, the former Sunrise donut shop, at 10155 S.W. County Road 484, just west of State Road 200. The tipster called around 7:30 p.m., and provided details about the manufacturing of K2 and that the men, at the closed business, were loading K2 into a moving truck. According to the arrest affidavits, Joiner went to the store and saw a large rental truck at the business. He made contact with Rabah. In plain view, Joiner could see packages of what he believed was synthetic marijuana. Rabah said he was picking up empty packages to take to Tampa. After telling Joiner there were two men inside, he gave the lieutenant permission to enter the store. According to the affidavit, once inside the business Lt. Joiner in plain view observed next to a pool table numerous bags containing packages of synthetic marijuana. To the right of the business Lt. Joiner observed several plastic table work stations. Lt. Joiner observed some of the tables had small plastic containers with empty packages of synthetic marijuana. Also in a back room Lt. Joiner located several plastic containers which contained synthetic marijuana.

BY JIM CLARK EditorDo you like to read? Do you like to help children reach their potential? If so, Reading Pals wants you. Jan Hathaway, Reading Pals coordinator, spoke to the State Road 200 Coalition last week. Adults in the program read to kindergarten age children in the local public schools, helping the children in learning to have a more positive approach. Hathaway said of many of these children that its really scary coming to our school system not prepared for success. She said that some of the children dont know the alphabet and some dont even know their real name, noting that some children are called by nicknames at home and when a teacher in school calls them by their formal name, they dont know the teacher is talking to them. The said there were 330 children identified a needing a little extra help with their reading. She said after working with the Reading Pals, they excelled in growth beyond kindergarten classes. Volunteers work minimal time with the children, about 30 Like to read? Little school children are waiting for you PLEASESEEREADING, PAGE5 BY BOB WOODS Special to the CitizenWhat a tragedy. A tragedy that was even more inhumane then the Civil War itself. How could man be so cruel to one another even though the cruelty was against their enemy adversaries? It was brother against brother, fathers against sons, family members against each other and friends against friends. The tragedy being referred to is the Confederate Prisoner of War prison located at Andersonville, Georgia. Walking through the area and on the hallow ground that was once the POW encampment, goose bumps appear and hairs on ones arms rise. Energy rises from the ground where thousand upon thousand of Union soldiers were inhumanly treated along with the countless thousands of indiAndersonville POW prison: a tragedy PHOTO BY BOB WOODSDifferent uniforms worn by Union troops captured and interned in the Confederate Prison at Andersonville.

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. 000FXZT 000G2FW For more information, visit our website: dBhearingsolutions.com We accept discounts from all insurances!

Pass the AceMany people arent aware that on Saturday evenings at 6:30, an avid group of card players gather in the card room at 6:30 to play Pass the Ace. For more than a dozen years these people have played and never once has their activity be noted or publicized so today we rectify that fact. Pass the Ace is a card game that is relatively easy to learn but does take some time to learn the strategy of not getting caught with the low cards. It has been played around camp fires; at family gatherings and even in our clubhouse for years. If you would like to learn to play then join this happy group on Saturdays.From Your ReporterLast Saturday evening I was walking through our Clubhouse and found some interesting things happening. I entered through the pool room to find some ladies practicing their shots and joking around with each other. Passing the card room, I saw a group of happy people sitting at the large table playing what I found out was a game of Pass the Ace. Chatting with them, I found out they had been playing unnoticed for more than a dozen years. I asked if they werent getting hungry after playing that long. Seriously, very few people know that they meet every week for some relaxing cards. Entering the patio I found another group of people sitting around the tables at pool side just chatting and having a quiet evening. Swimmers were in the pool and they would occasionally come out to join the gathering. At the Bocce Ball courts there were even more people playing a lively game and laughing both with and at each other. Everyone was doing something different but the common denominator for all of them was that they were having a great time. One other thing that all these events had in common was that they are all free. If you live in Cherrywood and you arent enjoying your Saturday evenings, try joining your neighbors for these activities. We have a truly fun and active community. If you have any suggestions, ideas or comments about the Cherrywood section of your Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

A freewill offering during the concert will benefit Interfaiths Food 4 Kids program. The Autumn Jazz Experience showcases Remillards band, which is popular at venues around Ocala and The Villages. The band, which donates its talents to the concert, features Remillard on piano, Mike Holt on sax, Dean Millward on bass and Don Gold on drums with a special appearance by Buzz Lewis. Autumn Jazz Experience is the 5th annual concert sponsored by Our Saviour Lutheran Church to benefit Food 4 Kids. More than $9,000 has been donated to Food 4 Kids through the concert program. Food 4 Kids fills backpacks with non-perishable foods for students who may live in homes where there is inadequate food on weekends. The program began in 2004 when teachers noted that some students were not eating over the weekend. It now reaches into 32 schools, providing food for more than 1,400 students. The concert began when church members sought a way to celebrate Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit, which is marked in late spring. Worship committee member Mary Johnson shared the tradition of a Pentecost jazz concert popular at her home church in Columbus, Ohio, and the concert was reinvented in Marion Oaks, with the goal of experiencing the joy of Pentecost through music while supporting Food 4 Kids This year the committee opted to move the concert to fall at the suggestion of the band, because many of its fans return north before Pentecost. Our Saviour Lutheran Church also operates a satellite pantry site for Interfaith Emergency Services. The pantry is open Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and distributes food and hygiene items to qualifying families in need who fall below the federal poverty guidelines. It has served more than 2,000 individuals in its first year of service. The church is centrally located in Marion Oaks, just west of the community center. Light refreshments will be served.

Thomas Lacinski, who said he is a physicist who has taught at the college level, gives his time to the program. I didnt realize how many children were from dysfunctional families. He said he seldom had contact with children this young before he started in the program. They need a little shove, he said of the children. Everything you do for them is brand new. He drew a laugh when he said that it was hard to tell the children were disadvantaged. They dont even know how to lie yet. He added, Were giving these children a little push so they fit right in.

SZUTAR Special to the CitizenThe Sunday Arts Concert at Countryside Church for Oct. 13 will feature Dr. Sarah Satterfield and Arnold Irchai. The concert begins at 3 p.m. and includes works composed by Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887-1959) a native of Rio de Janerio. Villa-Lobos, essentially self-taught, produced over 1,000 works. For the second half of the concert, Satterfield and Irchal will perform selections by Jean Francaix born in LeMans, France. According to Satterfield the composer was known by his sense of humor, which comes through in his music. Irchai began studying the bassoon at the Leningrad Special Music School for Gifted Children and continued his studies at the State Leningrad Conservatory where he received his masters and doctorate degrees. He has performed with major symphony orchestras throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas since his school years and has extensively performed solo recitals as well as chamber music recitals. During his career he has gained extensive teaching credentials at colleges and universities in the United States, Russia, Italy and Spain. Currently, he is the principal bassoonist for the Ocala Symphony Orchestra and the Gainesville Chamber Orchestra. Satterfield received a Ph.D. in Music History and Literature with an outside specialization in art from the University of Florida, a masters in Music in Flute Performance from San Diego Southern University and a bachelors in Music Education from Furman University.

Many died from diseases caused by the polluted water supply which was contained with fecal matter and other bacterial components from sick and dying men. Water was diverted from a near-by stream into the prison via a hand dug trench. Imagine thousands of Union soldiers utilizing this water source. Today, the stream and spring still exist where the prison once stood. A sign is posted warning visitors not to drink the water. It was polluted when the prison was in full use during the Civil War and is still polluted today. Remember Andersonville? You more than likely were taught a little about this prison and what transpired there during American history classes where the subject of the Civil War was being studied during your school years. Camp Sumter was the name of the prison but was commonly known as Andersonville. The camps early stages were designed PLEASESEEPRISON, PAGE7 PRISONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Front of the National Prisoner or War Museum located at Andersonville.

More can be found at www.smcitizen.com THE RACKETEER By John Grisham The Racketeer departs from Grishams other legal thrillers in that the protagonist, a disbarred lawyer serving a 10-year sentence for RICO violations he unwittingly stumbled intois black. When the book opens Malcolm Bannister has served half of his sentence. But given the dark realities of prison life hes eager to find a way out of serving any more time. And the way out just might be a loophole called Rule 35 that reduces a defendants sentence if he provides substantial help in prosecuting another person. Malcolms legal skills have greatly improved since becoming a jailhouse lawyer and helping four other prisoners gain their release. An already smart man has become even smarter. At stake now is the murder of a federal judge, Raymond Fawcett, at his remote vacation home. There are few clues at the crime scene but a large, ransacked safe points to robbery rather than to revenge. When Mal finally gets the FBIs attention, he claims to know the identity of the judges killer. Hell reveal the name once his terms are accepted, he tells them. And hes thought of everything: immediate freedom, Witness Protection, a surgically altered face and a new identity. Going forward the plot becomes complicated and hard to describe without creating spoilers. So suffice it to say that its a merry romp with Bannister staying two steps ahead of the gullible feds. If theres a downside to this irresistible read, its Malcolms masquerading as a documentary film director. This section interrupts the fast pace, goes on way too long, and seems irrelevant for some time. A lawyer finding himself in legal trouble has figured into other Grisham novels but in this latest thriller theres no trumpeting a miscarriage of justice. Readers are likely to conclude that crime actually does pay. The Racketeer is a fresh spin on a great story tellers formula. Recommended.

Only five Democrats joined the entire Republican caucus to vote in favor of the legislation sponsored by Tennessee Republican Diane Black.

Friday, September 20, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, September 20, 2013 www.smcitizen.com for a maximum of only 10,000 prisoners. The stockade was constructed on approximately 16 acres with a 15-foot high stockade log constructed wall in the shape of a rectangle approximately 18months before the end of the Civil War. Later the camp was enlarged to around 26 acres with no shelters except for flimsy shelters constructed by inmates out of anything to keep them out of the weather except what they could make utilizing blankets, tarps and brush. Andersonville is located approximately 60 miles south of Macon, Georgia. When the prison was crowded to its seams it held more than 32,000 wounded and starving prisoners in horrorable, indescribable conditions. The camp was full of starving and wounded troops where diseases and contaminated water existed. Before the Union troops liberated Andersonville, approximately 45,000 Union troops passed through the stockades gates. Those who perished were buried in mass graves. Almost 13,000 improvised individuals met their horrible demise at this black mark of the Civil War. There was one Union soldier who was ordered by the Confederates with the job of recording the names of those who died in prison. This man had to give the names to the prison office but only after secretly copying the names of the dead for himself. After the liberation of the prison by Union forces, this list became most valuable in the identification of the dead. Prisoners suffered greatly from hunger, exposure, and disease. The Confederate prison was generally under supplied with food and medical supplies. This was both for the prisoners and the guards. The guards would get their share of the food and what was left went to the prisoner population. Some prisoners were shot trying to escape but other than hunger, about one third of those who perished were from Scurvy and dysentery. If prisoners approached too close to the stockade wall they were shot. Some did just that to end their agony and misery. Andersonville prison was liberated and the commandant of the inner stockade was tried by a Union military tribunal on charges of conspiracy and murder. Henry Wirz was found guilty and sentence to death. He was hanged in Washington, D.C. within sight of the U.S. Capital Building. Wirz was the only Confederate official tried and convicted for war crimes as a result from the Civil War. The cemetery site at Camp Sumter (Andersonville) was established in 1865 as the Andersonville National Cemetery. Union soldiers who died at the camp and those buried elsewhere in the area were exhumed and buried in the National Cemetery. This cemetery has been used continuously since its establishment. The cemetery and the associated prison site became a unit of the National Park System in 1970. The National Historical Site at Andersonville has three components: The site of the former Camp Sumter military prison, the Andersonville National Cemetery and the National Prisoner of War Museum. The museum was opened in 1998 honoring all U.S. prisoners of wars. The facilities are located on the outskirts of Andersonville, Georgia. The hamlet of Andersonville is a must stop while visiting the National Historic Site. The hamlet, with a population from the 2010 census as 255, has many historical buildings in their original state during the Civil War period. One building on the main street is home to the Drummer Boy Museum. This museum has been described as the best Civil War museum anywhere in the United States by the Blue and Gray Magazine. A controversial monument in town standing high is a tribute to Captain Henry Wirz, Commander of the prison, who was the only Confederate executed for war crimes. It was a controversary when it was constructed as well as it is today. The United Daughters of the Confederacy erected the monument. Northern states erected monuments honoring soldiers from that particular state. The Wirz monument was erected in his honor hoping to vindicate his name. Andersonville is a very worthwhile stop in your travels northward. It is approximately 40 total miles from Interstate 75. It will bring to light history, no matter how bad it was, of the Civil War era especially the prisoner of war encampment, the Prisoner of War Museum, and the cemetery itself along with the small antebellum hamlet of Andersonville. PRISONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 Next week is National Dog Week. Its purpose is to educate all dog owners in their responsibilities to their pets and to their communities, particularly those organizations dedicated to caring for unwanted or lost dogs. Here in Pun Alley, we just go to the dogs.Thats the pitsA dog owner had a pit bull that hated to walk. The dog kept sitting down and bracing his feet so that his owner would have to drag him by his leash. The owner finally gave up when he realized he was creating a bottomless pit.Sleep talkingSally has a dog that talks in its sleep. One day a visitor was astonished to hear the dog bellow, My name is Christopher Columbus! I am 700 years old! I own America! I married Marilyn Monroe. When the visitor asked what was going on, Sally replied, Dont worry about it. Just let sleeping dogs lie.Vet visitA man took his Rottweiler to the vet and said to him, My dogs cross-eyed. Is there anything you can do for him? The vet said, lets have a look at him. So he picked up the dog and had a good look at his eyes. Well, said the vet Im going to have to put him down. Just because hes cross-eyed? asked the man. The vet replied, No, because hes heavy.Flea bitesIn 1922 the first canine scale was made, but it only weighed in dog pounds. The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue. The first flea circus opened, but a dog came by, and stole the show. If you think dogs cant count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them. A police dog is often the scenter of a drug arrest. Pet Owner: Every time a bell rings my dog goes and sits in the corner. Vet: Thats perfectly normal; hes a boxer. Dogs are not good dancers because they have two left feet. Diamonds are a girls best friend and dogs are a mans best friend. Now you know which sex has more sense. You can keep a barking dog quiet with hush puppies. A dog gave birth to puppies near the road and was cited for littering. Policeman: Excuse me, but your dog has been chasing a man on his bicycle. Dog owner: Are you crazy? My dog cant even ride a bicycle.Eye openerGeorge had worked late, and his Labrador was so overjoyed to see him arrive home that he jumped up just as George leaned down. Their heads collided, and George sported an impressive shiner for several weeks. He had to frequently repeat to co-workers and friends how he got it. One day on the elevator, a secretary whom he hadnt seen for some time looked at his black eye and exclaimed, My goodness, what happened to you? The dog did it, George wearily replied. A man standing next to George said knowingly, Ahh, you must own a boxer.From the poundAfter years of maintaining purebred dogs, people are exploring crossbreeds to get dogs with special characteristics. They crossed a Collie and a Lhasa Apso. The new breed is a Collapso, a dog that folds up for easy transport. They crossed a Pointer and a Setter. The new breed is a Poinsetter, a traditional Christmas pet. They crossed an Irish Water Spaniel and an English Springer Spaniel. The new breed is an Irish Springer, a dog fresh and clean. They crossed a Newfoundland and a Basset Hound. The new breed is a Newfound Asset Hound, a dog for financial advisors. They crossed a Bloodhound and a Labrador. The new breed is a Blabador, a dog that barks incessantly. They crossed a Collie and a Malamute. The new breed is a Commute, a dog that travels to work.Bad dog?It was the end of the day when the policeman parked the police van in front of the station. As he gathered his equipment, his K-9 partner was barking, and the policeman saw a little boy staring in at him. Is that a dog you got back there? he asked. It sure is, the policeman replied. Puzzled, the boy stared at the dog and finally said, Whatd he do?

Friday, September 20, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 20, 2013 BY GLENN MOLLETTE Special to the CitizenI suspect you are already tired of hearing about Syria. The future path is blurry, even to our president. Assad will still be in power. How many has he killed without chemical weapons? Who is using the chemical weapons? It sounds to me like the real problem is the one issuing the orders in Syria. Americans are now on the verge of committing billions of dollars of money we do not have to impact an area of the world that already hates us. Here at home we have millions who cannot find a job. We have millions more who cannot feed their families with the paycheck they bring home. All the while our roads and bridges need desperate repair. We need new school buildings for our children. We have made our military do more with less but we continue to ask them to do more. We continue to put our aging seniors at risk as we make it harder for us to pay social security and cover our huge medical tab. Needless to say the tax debt for our children and grandchildren grows all the more. Syria means additional taxes, not less taxes. Many of us can still remember how tired we were of Vietnam. My brother served a year in Vietnam and it was a long year for our family. Fortunately, he came home. An older friend who lived just up the road named Junior was killed in Vietnam. Ill never forget his funeral. The expression on his fathers face said it all when a finely dressed soldier handed him the folded American flag and expressed his appreciation on behalf of America for Juniors service. Vietnam went on for 12 long years. It was a senseless waste of at least 58,000 American lives and for so long it seemed it would never end. We endured Iraq for eight years and lost almost 4,500 more soldiers and yet today the country is in constant chaos. Today we have allowed Afghanistan to surpass Vietnam as our longest war. With all the noise about Syria do not forget we are still in Afghanistan. We will spend 100 billion dollars in Afghanistan this year and risk the lives of more American men and women. The story we are hearing about Syria keeps changing. Weve been hearing about Syria for at least two years. Now we are hearing all the promises made by our president, secretary of state and others pertaining to our involvement. Over the months the promises will change, as there will be new developments, revelations and new commitments of weapons, food, soldiers and your money. Brace yourself because history is about to repeat itself and were already tired. Glenn Mollette is an American Columnist and speaker. He is the author of American Issues and nine other books.

Back in 1999, a new television quiz show called Who Wants to Be a Millionaire launched on television with Regis Philbin as the host. From the start, I liked that show, because it required some intelligence to participate, unlike so many shows on the air. I put it right up there with Jeopardy, the all-time great trivia knowledge show. In 2002, the show went into syndication, headed by Meredith Vieira, who hosted the show for 11 years. Her final show was in May of this year. I had read that Meredith was leaving, but I guess it didnt sink in. Then, right around Labor Day a couple of weeks ago, we (my wife and I) sat down to watch the DVR recording of the season first show, and some heavy-set guy wearing a Fedora (for you young folks, thats a kind of hat) yelled out who he was and this was his first show. Suddenly my comfort zone of watching this show was wiped away. First, I was always taught not to wear a hat indoors, that was the initial reaction. Second, I didnt catch the guys name at the beginning of the show, and had to wait until the credits to learn his name was Cedric the Entertainer. To me, he wasnt very entertaining. The smooth flow, the good-natured banter with the audience and the contestants, was gone. It was a forced humor, the kind that usually needs a laugh track. Even the contestants seemed a little stranger than usual. They also made one change the contestants relatives are now seated a couple of rows back but in direct line of the camera, so theyre on the screen almost all the time. I guess thats good for them, but when someone wins $25,000, they have to negotiate over other people to get a hug. One of the things Meredith said when she took the job originally was that there werent enough shows on TV where parents could sit down and watch with children without being embarrassed, and it was true. After seeing the first few shows with Cedric the Entertainer, Im not sure that philosophy is continuing. Meanwhile, Meredith, who turns 60 this December, will host a talk show starting next year. You might remember she was an original host of The View. Ill probably watch a little to see what its like, but talk shows like that arent exactly my thing. If they were, Id be watching one of my favorites, Katie Couric, every day. So I wish the best of luck to Meredith Vieira, and Ill probably still watch recordings of Millionaire, fast-forwarding through the chatter of Cedric. One word of advice to the new host, though: Lose the hat, please.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

So here we are again, trying to analyze the aftermath of mass shooting. This time it was at a government facility, the Washington Navy Yard. The shooter killed 12 people, and then he himself was killed by police. There have been lots of tidbits coming out, but basically, no one knows why he turned silently violent and gunned down workers at a U.S. Navy facility. We just got finished listening to the trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 people in late 2009 at Fort Hood, Texas. He was recently convicted of 13 counts of murder and sentenced to death. Now another military installation is the scene of a mass murder. You would think, of all places, that a Navy Yard and an Army fort would be safe havens from this sort of violence. The incident also showed what we have said before the 24-hour instant news cycle isnt always the best way to get accurate information. We were told that there were three shooters, with one dead (that would have been Aaron Alexis). Eventually, the FBI and local authorities said there was only one shooter, and on Tuesday things calmed down around Washington, D.C. On Monday, the day of the shooting, workers were evacuated from several areas, a baseball game that was expected to draw thousands was called off, and traffic was snarled because of closed streets. Reports said that on Tuesday, things were better. We heard some people ask why there was still an investigation going on, when there was only one shooter and he was dead. But we agree there should be more study into this incident. Is it true he had a valid pass? Stories Tuesday said he entered the base armed with a shotgun, and then got a handgun from a security guard he had killed. Didnt anyone think it was strange that a computer specialist walked onto a Navy base with a shotgun? He lived in Fort Worth, Texas, Seattle and Washington, and was reportedly born in New York. He was once arrested for discharging a firearm in his apartment, and it went through his ceiling into the apartment above. He told police he was cleaning his gun and it went off. Later there were reports that he heard voices, and there was even a report to police that he told them people were talking to him through the walls. Still, he had clearance and a pass. So let the investigation continue. There are a lot of unanswered questions, and the results could help prevent things like this in the future. We know there are a lot of places in the country where you are not always safe. Now you can add military bases to that list. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY The aftermath of Navy shooting Who are you, and where is Meredith? The story of Syria: Are you getting tired of it yet? READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Theyre babies, tooPhotos of dead Syrian babies, as well as dead adults, are being regularly shown on TV and in print. These deaths are reported to be the result of nerve gas being used in the conflict in the Syrian Arab Republic. This coverage is to expose the disastrous violation of human rights in Syria. It is an open demonstration of what happens when the basic right to life is ignored. Why then does the media in the U.S. refuse to show photos of babies dead by abortion? For more than 40 years it has been public knowledge that greater than a million babies each year are deliberately put to death by the abortionists tools, and with the consent and approval of not only the parents, but consent and approval of the president of the U.S. and his administration, as well as approximately one half of the U.S. citizens, and the U.S. Supreme Court. Death by abortion, legal or illegal, is just as real as the deaths in Syria. When will our media expose abortion for what it is and publish photos of our aborted children? Mabel Ryan Life Education Ministry, Inc. Affordable Health CareIt sounds more like something you would read about Russia or China, however it is in the State of Florida. This past week Florida health officials have ordered Health Departments across the state to ban trained health counselors/navigators from explaining and helping some of the 3.5 million uninsured Floridians understand A.H.C. and sign up for health insurance. The federal government has given $8 million in grants to hire these counselors/navigators. How can this be harmful and why is the State banning it? Denying counseling to uninsured residents makes no sense whatsoever .CVS, Wallgreens, Rite Aid and Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius have announced a partnership and agents will be available at the stores as counselors. Is the governor and his party afraid to educate the public about health insurance for fear they may want insurance coverage? A.H.C. will allow approximately 8 million Floridians with pre-existing conditions to get insurance coverage for the first time. PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The changing season brings new experiences as well as challenges for the ever-adventurous Aries. Your social life expands, as do the opportunities at your workplace. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That recent period of uncertainty has passed. You can now feel more confident about making decisions, especially those that relate to an important personal relationship. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you might be faced with a number of tasks on your to-do list, try to take time out to enjoy the arts. Music, especially, can be soothing to the sensitive soul of a Gemini. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A disagreement with a colleague or friend is best resolved with open and frank discussion. Trying to force the other party to see things your way is bound to backfire. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) That Leonine pride might be ruffled by a colleagues challenge to one of your pet ideas. But stop growling and listen. You could learn something that will work to your advantage. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Someone in authority might decide to select you as a candidate for a project that carries more responsibilities. Be prepared to show why youre the right choice for the job. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) That new workplace problem should be dealt with as soon as possible. Leaving it unresolved for too long could lead to an even more unsettling and time-consuming situation. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might have to do some fancy juggling to keep both your work responsibilities and personal obligations on track. But ultimately, youll work it all out, as you always do. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might hear some upsetting things about a situation in your life. But dont be swayed by talk. Demand proof before making any decisions on the matter. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Dont risk depleting those precious energy levels by taking on more tasks than you can realistically handle. Also, remember to ask for help when you need it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) It might be difficult for the Aquarian who is used to giving advice to take counsel when offered. But its a good idea to listen to what trusted friends feel you should know. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Things might be a little unsettled as you move through a period of reassessment. But once you get your priorities sorted out, you should be ready to tackle an important decision. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Friday, September 20, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, September 20, 2013 www.smcitizen.com This ban ordered by the governor and the Health Dept. is cruel and inhuman and will hurt those who need insurance the most. John Toner OcalaMeat inspectionAccording to the lead story in Sept. 9 Washington Post, the meat inspection program that USDA plans to roll out in meat and poultry plants nationwide has repeatedly failed to stop production of contaminated meat. The program allows meat producers to increase the speed of processing lines and replace USDA safety inspectors with their own employees. But plants operating under this program have experienced some of the worst health and safety violations that include failure to remove fecal matter and partly digested food, according to USDA inspector general. These contaminants may contain complex strains of deadly E. coli and listeria. Traditionally, USDA has catered more to the interests and profitability of the meat industry than health and safety concerns of American consumers. Consumer interests come into play only when large numbers of us get sick. Having the USDA protect consumers is like asking the fox to guard the chicken house. The Obama administration must reallocate responsibility for consumer safety to the Food and Drug administration. In the meantime, each of us must assume responsibility for our own safety by switching to the rich variety of plant-based meats offered in local supermarkets. Richard Fournier Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 BY GY MOODY Special to the Citizen Weve all heard the saying before: one mans trash is another mans treasure. However, having owned a small janitorial and cleaning business in Billings, Montana for the last six years, I can say with certainty that sometimes trash is just that trash. As Montanas Senator Max Baucus, chair of the Senate Finance Committee, embarks on his signature priority of cleaning up the U.S. tax code, I suspect he will find that both are true. The U.S. tax code is littered with wasteful loopholes and preferential rules written by insider lobbyists to benefit powerful corporations and wealthy special interests. For them, these loopholes do indeed represent an enormous and bountiful treasure. But, for small businesses, average Americans, and the country as a whole, they are nothing more than trash. As corporate accountants and tax lawyers have gotten more and more clever at shielding corporations from their tax responsibility, the effective tax rate paid by Americas biggest and most profitable businesses has plummeted to a mere 12.6%, according to a new Government Accountability Office report just one-third of the official corporate tax rate. So, while corporate profits have rebounded to a 60-year high, corporate taxes are near a 60-year low as a share of federal revenue, according to the Office of Management and Budget. One big loophole allows U.S. corporations to defer paying corporate income taxes on profits that are parked in offshore tax havens. Corporate offshore tax haven abuse is estimated to cost the United States $90 billion per year in lost COMMENTARY Cleaning up the tax code starts with taking out the trash tax revenue. It borders on the absurd: one modest five-story office building in the Cayman Islands is home to 18,857 companies. (Makes me wonder: Do their janitorial contractors get paid by square-foot or by number of corporate shell subsidiaries serviced per hour?) Offshore tax dodging harms small businesses in two ways. First, it puts small businesses at a disadvantage in the marketplace. We dont have the resources to hire armies of tax lawyers to dream up creative accounting schemes to avoid our tax responsibility the way big corporations do. Frankly, were proud to contribute our fair share, knowing that in order to build strong local economies, we need investments in an educated workforce, reliable roads and bridges, and a healthy middle class customer base. These investments require resources, which brings me to the second impact corporate tax avoidance has on Main Street America: offshore tax dodging robs the country of the resources we need to invest in building the economy from the middle out. Washington D.C.s obsession with deficit reduction has forced middleclass and vulnerable Americans to shoulder almost $1 trillion in cuts cuts that weaken consumer demand on Main Street, kill jobs, and stifle economic growth. Meanwhile, corporate America hasnt been asked to contribute a dime to deficit reduction, much less making strategic investments to spur the economy. Against this backdrop, some big business titans amazingly have the gall to advocate doubling down on offshore tax dodging, aggressively lobbying for a permanent tax get-out-of-taxes-free card on offshore profits a so-called territorial tax system while backing cuts to Social Security and Medicare that would wreak further havoc on the Main Street economy. In short, small business owners and our customers get trash while corporate pirates sail offshore with the treasure. Small business owners dont accept it and neither should Senator Baucus. A poll this year commissioned by the Main Street Alliance and the American Sustainable Business Council found 85 percent of small business owners oppose the territorial tax system pushed by offshore tax dodgers. By a margin of more than two to one, small business owners prefer closing corporate tax loopholes over cuts to education, infrastructure or Social Security and Medicare. Its time to end offshore tax dodging and close tax loopholes that benefit large corporations and wealthy special interests. Use the revenue to invest in strengthening the economy and creating jobs. Whether youre a small business owner cleaning restaurants in Billings or a U.S. Senator cleaning up the tax code in D.C., the first step is taking out the trash.

Check out our website www.smcitizen.com Your FREE source for local news One of the most beautiful holidays in the Jewish liturgical year is, in my opinion, the Festival of Sukkot. (Festival of Booths) This wonderful holiday occurring in the fall of the year right after the solemn observances of the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) and Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) Sukkot commemorates the 40 year journey of the ancient Israelites in the desert as they wandered, under Gods protection, to the Promised Land. It also recalls the time when in ancient Israel, the Israelites were farmers and tilled the land tending to their crops while following the laws of the Torah which provide for crop rotation, resting of the soil and provisions for the poor. During their agrarian life style, the ancient Hebrews constructed booths or sukkot to be near their fields as harvest approached just as they built shelters from the hot sun during their travels in the wilderness. Today the holiday has taken on a different significance as we have moved away from our agricultural roots. The sukkah (singular of sukkot), a flimsy temporary shelter, has come to symbolize the fragility of life and how we are dependent on each other and God as we wend our way through life. Like the sukkah, we are easily buffeted by lifes winds and are often knocked down or broken. The sukkah teaches us that nothing is permanent and we do, indeed, need to rely on others for moral and spiritual support. Keeping this feeling of camaraderie in mind, one of the aspects of Sukkot is hospitality. A booth or sukkah is constructed for the eight days of the festival and on each night of holiday, a certain ancestor is symbolically invited into the sukkah for a meal. Traditional Jews actually sleep and/or eat their meals in the sukkah. Most Jews today, try to at least eat a few meals in the booth. Jews also invite others to come and be welcomed into the sukkah. Neighbors are often asked to help erect the hut and to assist with the decorations which involve hanging fruits and vegetables from the top of the booth which is covered loosely with branches so that the stars may be seen. The sukkah rituals are performed in the sukkah at this time which includes waving the lulav, palm, myrtle and willow branches tied together, and the etrog, a yellow citron, based on the injunction in the Torah about the customs and laws of this biblical festival holiday. Hospitality reigns supreme in the sukkah and it is one of the virtues that the Jewish people have always exhibited. In keeping with this concept, Congregation Beth Israel of Ocala and the Nature Coast Unitarian Fellowship of Citrus County will hold a joint service to celebrate the harvest and sukkot as well as tying in the themes of hospitality and welcoming to those returning from summer adventures. The service will be held during the Sukkot festival on Sunday, Sept. 22 at 10:30 a.m. at the Unitarian Meeting Hall, 7633 N. Florida Ave., Citrus Springs. There will be a sukkah erected on the Unitarians property for all to see and enjoy with the sukkah rituals led by Beth Israels co-president, Judi Siegal. During the service, there will be appropriate readings from members of both congregations. This is a wonderful opportunity to share similar traditions and customs with our neighbors. All are welcome to attend. For further information, contact Judi at 352-237-8277. September 2013 Sukkot: Hospitality and Harvest Judis Journal Judi Siegal agement during these troubling times.

With a Sukkah constructed and placed on the back of a pickup truck, the traveling Sukkah brings the holiday to peoples doorstep. Sukkot is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the miraculous clouds which surrounded the Jewish people as they wandered in the desert wilderness on their way to the Promised Land. It is also a celebration of the completion of the harvest. The Sukkah booth is a temporary structure covered with vegetation or bamboo. The current plan is for the traveling Sukkah to visit where people may not have access to a Sukkah booth. A light snack will be available in the Sukkah at all times to add to the enjoyment of the holiday. Holiday practices of Sukkot include eating in the Sukkah for the duration of the holiday. Jews also take Four Species of plant life; a citron fruit, palm branch, willows twigs, and myrtle stems, and shake them together with a special blessing on each the days of the festival. A set of the Four Species will also be on hand in the traveling Sukkah. We would like to give everyone the opportunity to participate in the holiday said Rabbi Yossi Hecht. By sitting together in the Sukkah we express the ultimate form of unity. The holiday observances end on Sept. 26 at dark.

An invitation to join New England Club at OTOW At Tuesdays State Board of Education meeting in West Palm Beach, Board members voted unanimously to name Pam Stewart as the Commissioner of Education. Board members expressed confidence in Stewart's ability to work through the critical education issues facing Florida. Stewart is a former principal of North Marion High School. Ive had a chance to work closely with Pam, said State Board Chairman Gary Chartrand. I think we are at a critical time, so we are going to look to her to work diligently to see us through these issues. There is a lot of work to be done and I am fully confident of her ability to make the right decisions for Florida's children. I appreciate the support of the Board and I can assure you I am cognizant of the times we are in and the critical nature of the work, said Commissioner Stewart. Ive spent 32 years in public education and I remain fully committed to the students of Florida. This is the time to look forward and get this critical work right for our students. In other action the board approved the 2014-15 Legislative Operating and Fixed Capital Outlay budget request. Pam Stewart named education commissioner In our house, we have a rule that has enabled us to live at peace with one another for over 42 years. That rule is simple, Dont mess with my space and I wont mess with your space. I must admit some rather close calls have challenged that relationship during those years. I will not say from which side of the house it came from; just that it was not my side of the house. It must be quite difficult for someone like the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage whom, I must confess is a neat freak, and Yours Truly who is just a plain old messy freak. My wife cannot relax if there is something out of place. On occasion, I will catch her glancing in the direction of my space and I know exactly what she is thinking. I do not always know what she is thinking, because that would be very taxing on my thinking machine. I know exactly what she is thinking. She wants to clean up my mess. Do you need any help tidying up your office? I know it is a ploy for her to get her organizing paws on my things and arrange them so I cannot find anything I want when I want it. Although it may not look like it to her, I am quite organized. I guess we have a different idea when it comes to organization. When I go to the cupboard in the kitchen, I know everything will be in its place. In the bathroom, the same thing goes. Everything is neatly put in its place. She knows where everything is and everything is where she wants it. Well, maybe not quite everything. There are those issues with me. To make matters worse, she has this idea of cleaning the house on a regular basis. Do you know how annoying it is to hear the vacuum cleaner running when trying to take a nap? Like clockwork, our vacuum cleaner takes its weekly, if not more, run throughout the house. Do you know how much electricity it takes to do that on a weekly basis? If I had to choose between dirt and electricity, I would choose dirt every time. My space is just a little bit different. I like to think of my space as actual living quarters. It may look like a mess to some Philistine, but I can assure you everything has a place and everything is in its place. I can find what I want when I want it, which is the only thing that really matters. If I cannot find what I need when I need it then I do not really need it. Life is that simple when you accept messy as a lifestyle. Just recently, my wife suggested that perhaps she could help me organize my office space. I just scowled at her and said, Dont mess with my space and I wont mess with your space. She smiled one of those sympathetic smiles she gives everyone she thinks does not know what is going on in the world. Quite frankly, I do not need to know what is going on in the world. All I need to know is what is going on in my world and I have several piles in my office I can consult on that topic. All offers to help me tidy up my mess go unheeded. I like my mess because it is my mess. I made it, I am proud of it and I love it. I have grown quite uneasy as of late. Every time I go away I come back to find some new remodeling project completed in our house. I am beginning to think she watches too much of This Old House. I spent a week in California only to come home and find the kitchen completely remodeled. Now, as I think the plan was, I do not know where anything in the kitchen is. All the old cupboards have been replaced by newer and bigger cupboards. I am afraid at this point to raise any kind of an objection. After all, we do have that my space/your space policy and I really do not want to jeopardize that in any fashion. My basic concern is this; I fear when I go for a week and come back my space will be so completely remodeled and organized that I will not recognize it and will not be able to find anything I need. What would I do then? If I compliment her on her remodeling jobs, it might make her confident about doing more remodeling jobs which may spill over into my space. Can you imagine how awful it would be? It would be a sad day if I came home from some trip and found my mess completely gone. What would I do with my life? I would have to start life all over again and you know how expensive that is. It is tough married to a fix up guru; then again, I suppose it is just as hard to be wedded to a mess up guru. I have one concession in this area. David said it so well, Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow (Psalms 51:7 KJV). God specializes in cleaning up messes and preparing people like me for heaven.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

This special certification program is implemented in accordance with Section 1001.47(4), Florida Statutes and State Board of Education Rule 6A-1.551, FAC. Superintendent Tomyn should be commended for his efforts to expand and build on the skills and knowledge necessary to lead the school system in todays challenging society, states Montford. Marion County Public Schools is fortunate to have a leader committed to public education and the continuous growth and enhancement of its own leadership skills to better serve its school system, adds Montford. We always look for opportunities for our students, teachers, and other employees to learn even more. This is an opportunity for me to do just that and make even more focused decisions as superintendent, Tomyn concludes. For more information, contact the Florida Association of District School Superintendents at 850.577.5784 or www.fadss.org.

An invitation to join New England Club at OTOW At Tuesdays State Board of Education meeting in West Palm Beach, Board members voted unanimously to name Pam Stewart as the Commissioner of Education. Board members expressed confidence in Stewart's ability to work through the critical education issues facing Florida. Stewart is a former principal of North Marion High School. Ive had a chance to work closely with Pam, said State Board Chairman Gary Chartrand. I think we are at a critical time, so we are going to look to her to work diligently to see us through these issues. There is a lot of work to be done and I am fully confident of her ability to make the right decisions for Florida's children. I appreciate the support of the Board and I can assure you I am cognizant of the times we are in and the critical nature of the work, said Commissioner Stewart. Ive spent 32 years in public education and I remain fully committed to the students of Florida. This is the time to look forward and get this critical work right for our students. In other action the board approved the 2014-15 Legislative Operating and Fixed Capital Outlay budget request. Pam Stewart named education commissioner In our house, we have a rule that has enabled us to live at peace with one another for over 42 years. That rule is simple, Dont mess with my space and I wont mess with your space. I must admit some rather close calls have challenged that relationship during those years. I will not say from which side of the house it came from; just that it was not my side of the house. It must be quite difficult for someone like the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage whom, I must confess is a neat freak, and Yours Truly who is just a plain old messy freak. My wife cannot relax if there is something out of place. On occasion, I will catch her glancing in the direction of my space and I know exactly what she is thinking. I do not always know what she is thinking, because that would be very taxing on my thinking machine. I know exactly what she is thinking. She wants to clean up my mess. Do you need any help tidying up your office? I know it is a ploy for her to get her organizing paws on my things and arrange them so I cannot find anything I want when I want it. Although it may not look like it to her, I am quite organized. I guess we have a different idea when it comes to organization. When I go to the cupboard in the kitchen, I know everything will be in its place. In the bathroom, the same thing goes. Everything is neatly put in its place. She knows where everything is and everything is where she wants it. Well, maybe not quite everything. There are those issues with me. To make matters worse, she has this idea of cleaning the house on a regular basis. Do you know how annoying it is to hear the vacuum cleaner running when trying to take a nap? Like clockwork, our vacuum cleaner takes its weekly, if not more, run throughout the house. Do you know how much electricity it takes to do that on a weekly basis? If I had to choose between dirt and electricity, I would choose dirt every time. My space is just a little bit different. I like to think of my space as actual living quarters. It may look like a mess to some Philistine, but I can assure you everything has a place and everything is in its place. I can find what I want when I want it, which is the only thing that really matters. If I cannot find what I need when I need it then I do not really need it. Life is that simple when you accept messy as a lifestyle. Just recently, my wife suggested that perhaps she could help me organize my office space. I just scowled at her and said, Dont mess with my space and I wont mess with your space. She smiled one of those sympathetic smiles she gives everyone she thinks does not know what is going on in the world. Quite frankly, I do not need to know what is going on in the world. All I need to know is what is going on in my world and I have several piles in my office I can consult on that topic. All offers to help me tidy up my mess go unheeded. I like my mess because it is my mess. I made it, I am proud of it and I love it. I have grown quite uneasy as of late. Every time I go away I come back to find some new remodeling project completed in our house. I am beginning to think she watches too much of This Old House. I spent a week in California only to come home and find the kitchen completely remodeled. Now, as I think the plan was, I do not know where anything in the kitchen is. All the old cupboards have been replaced by newer and bigger cupboards. I am afraid at this point to raise any kind of an objection. After all, we do have that my space/your space policy and I really do not want to jeopardize that in any fashion. My basic concern is this; I fear when I go for a week and come back my space will be so completely remodeled and organized that I will not recognize it and will not be able to find anything I need. What would I do then? If I compliment her on her remodeling jobs, it might make her confident about doing more remodeling jobs which may spill over into my space. Can you imagine how awful it would be? It would be a sad day if I came home from some trip and found my mess completely gone. What would I do with my life? I would have to start life all over again and you know how expensive that is. It is tough married to a fix up guru; then again, I suppose it is just as hard to be wedded to a mess up guru. I have one concession in this area. David said it so well, Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow (Psalms 51:7 KJV). God specializes in cleaning up messes and preparing people like me for heaven.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Friday, September 20, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, September 20, 2013 www.smcitizen.com This ban ordered by the governor and the Health Dept. is cruel and inhuman and will hurt those who need insurance the most. John Toner OcalaMeat inspectionAccording to the lead story in Sept. 9 Washington Post, the meat inspection program that USDA plans to roll out in meat and poultry plants nationwide has repeatedly failed to stop production of contaminated meat. The program allows meat producers to increase the speed of processing lines and replace USDA safety inspectors with their own employees. But plants operating under this program have experienced some of the worst health and safety violations that include failure to remove fecal matter and partly digested food, according to USDA inspector general. These contaminants may contain complex strains of deadly E. coli and listeria. Traditionally, USDA has catered more to the interests and profitability of the meat industry than health and safety concerns of American consumers. Consumer interests come into play only when large numbers of us get sick. Having the USDA protect consumers is like asking the fox to guard the chicken house. The Obama administration must reallocate responsibility for consumer safety to the Food and Drug administration. In the meantime, each of us must assume responsibility for our own safety by switching to the rich variety of plant-based meats offered in local supermarkets. Richard Fournier Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 BY GY MOODY Special to the Citizen Weve all heard the saying before: one mans trash is another mans treasure. However, having owned a small janitorial and cleaning business in Billings, Montana for the last six years, I can say with certainty that sometimes trash is just that trash. As Montanas Senator Max Baucus, chair of the Senate Finance Committee, embarks on his signature priority of cleaning up the U.S. tax code, I suspect he will find that both are true. The U.S. tax code is littered with wasteful loopholes and preferential rules written by insider lobbyists to benefit powerful corporations and wealthy special interests. For them, these loopholes do indeed represent an enormous and bountiful treasure. But, for small businesses, average Americans, and the country as a whole, they are nothing more than trash. As corporate accountants and tax lawyers have gotten more and more clever at shielding corporations from their tax responsibility, the effective tax rate paid by Americas biggest and most profitable businesses has plummeted to a mere 12.6%, according to a new Government Accountability Office report just one-third of the official corporate tax rate. So, while corporate profits have rebounded to a 60-year high, corporate taxes are near a 60-year low as a share of federal revenue, according to the Office of Management and Budget. One big loophole allows U.S. corporations to defer paying corporate income taxes on profits that are parked in offshore tax havens. Corporate offshore tax haven abuse is estimated to cost the United States $90 billion per year in lost COMMENTARY Cleaning up the tax code starts with taking out the trash tax revenue. It borders on the absurd: one modest five-story office building in the Cayman Islands is home to 18,857 companies. (Makes me wonder: Do their janitorial contractors get paid by square-foot or by number of corporate shell subsidiaries serviced per hour?) Offshore tax dodging harms small businesses in two ways. First, it puts small businesses at a disadvantage in the marketplace. We dont have the resources to hire armies of tax lawyers to dream up creative accounting schemes to avoid our tax responsibility the way big corporations do. Frankly, were proud to contribute our fair share, knowing that in order to build strong local economies, we need investments in an educated workforce, reliable roads and bridges, and a healthy middle class customer base. These investments require resources, which brings me to the second impact corporate tax avoidance has on Main Street America: offshore tax dodging robs the country of the resources we need to invest in building the economy from the middle out. Washington D.C.s obsession with deficit reduction has forced middleclass and vulnerable Americans to shoulder almost $1 trillion in cuts cuts that weaken consumer demand on Main Street, kill jobs, and stifle economic growth. Meanwhile, corporate America hasnt been asked to contribute a dime to deficit reduction, much less making strategic investments to spur the economy. Against this backdrop, some big business titans amazingly have the gall to advocate doubling down on offshore tax dodging, aggressively lobbying for a permanent tax get-out-of-taxes-free card on offshore profits a so-called territorial tax system while backing cuts to Social Security and Medicare that would wreak further havoc on the Main Street economy. In short, small business owners and our customers get trash while corporate pirates sail offshore with the treasure. Small business owners dont accept it and neither should Senator Baucus. A poll this year commissioned by the Main Street Alliance and the American Sustainable Business Council found 85 percent of small business owners oppose the territorial tax system pushed by offshore tax dodgers. By a margin of more than two to one, small business owners prefer closing corporate tax loopholes over cuts to education, infrastructure or Social Security and Medicare. Its time to end offshore tax dodging and close tax loopholes that benefit large corporations and wealthy special interests. Use the revenue to invest in strengthening the economy and creating jobs. Whether youre a small business owner cleaning restaurants in Billings or a U.S. Senator cleaning up the tax code in D.C., the first step is taking out the trash.

Check out our website www.smcitizen.com Your FREE source for local news One of the most beautiful holidays in the Jewish liturgical year is, in my opinion, the Festival of Sukkot. (Festival of Booths) This wonderful holiday occurring in the fall of the year right after the solemn observances of the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) and Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) Sukkot commemorates the 40 year journey of the ancient Israelites in the desert as they wandered, under Gods protection, to the Promised Land. It also recalls the time when in ancient Israel, the Israelites were farmers and tilled the land tending to their crops while following the laws of the Torah which provide for crop rotation, resting of the soil and provisions for the poor. During their agrarian life style, the ancient Hebrews constructed booths or sukkot to be near their fields as harvest approached just as they built shelters from the hot sun during their travels in the wilderness. Today the holiday has taken on a different significance as we have moved away from our agricultural roots. The sukkah (singular of sukkot), a flimsy temporary shelter, has come to symbolize the fragility of life and how we are dependent on each other and God as we wend our way through life. Like the sukkah, we are easily buffeted by lifes winds and are often knocked down or broken. The sukkah teaches us that nothing is permanent and we do, indeed, need to rely on others for moral and spiritual support. Keeping this feeling of camaraderie in mind, one of the aspects of Sukkot is hospitality. A booth or sukkah is constructed for the eight days of the festival and on each night of holiday, a certain ancestor is symbolically invited into the sukkah for a meal. Traditional Jews actually sleep and/or eat their meals in the sukkah. Most Jews today, try to at least eat a few meals in the booth. Jews also invite others to come and be welcomed into the sukkah. Neighbors are often asked to help erect the hut and to assist with the decorations which involve hanging fruits and vegetables from the top of the booth which is covered loosely with branches so that the stars may be seen. The sukkah rituals are performed in the sukkah at this time which includes waving the lulav, palm, myrtle and willow branches tied together, and the etrog, a yellow citron, based on the injunction in the Torah about the customs and laws of this biblical festival holiday. Hospitality reigns supreme in the sukkah and it is one of the virtues that the Jewish people have always exhibited. In keeping with this concept, Congregation Beth Israel of Ocala and the Nature Coast Unitarian Fellowship of Citrus County will hold a joint service to celebrate the harvest and sukkot as well as tying in the themes of hospitality and welcoming to those returning from summer adventures. The service will be held during the Sukkot festival on Sunday, Sept. 22 at 10:30 a.m. at the Unitarian Meeting Hall, 7633 N. Florida Ave., Citrus Springs. There will be a sukkah erected on the Unitarians property for all to see and enjoy with the sukkah rituals led by Beth Israels co-president, Judi Siegal. During the service, there will be appropriate readings from members of both congregations. This is a wonderful opportunity to share similar traditions and customs with our neighbors. All are welcome to attend. For further information, contact Judi at 352-237-8277. September 2013 Sukkot: Hospitality and Harvest Judis Journal Judi Siegal agement during these troubling times.

With a Sukkah constructed and placed on the back of a pickup truck, the traveling Sukkah brings the holiday to peoples doorstep. Sukkot is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the miraculous clouds which surrounded the Jewish people as they wandered in the desert wilderness on their way to the Promised Land. It is also a celebration of the completion of the harvest. The Sukkah booth is a temporary structure covered with vegetation or bamboo. The current plan is for the traveling Sukkah to visit where people may not have access to a Sukkah booth. A light snack will be available in the Sukkah at all times to add to the enjoyment of the holiday. Holiday practices of Sukkot include eating in the Sukkah for the duration of the holiday. Jews also take Four Species of plant life; a citron fruit, palm branch, willows twigs, and myrtle stems, and shake them together with a special blessing on each the days of the festival. A set of the Four Species will also be on hand in the traveling Sukkah. We would like to give everyone the opportunity to participate in the holiday said Rabbi Yossi Hecht. By sitting together in the Sukkah we express the ultimate form of unity. The holiday observances end on Sept. 26 at dark.

Friday, September 20, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 20, 2013 BY GLENN MOLLETTE Special to the CitizenI suspect you are already tired of hearing about Syria. The future path is blurry, even to our president. Assad will still be in power. How many has he killed without chemical weapons? Who is using the chemical weapons? It sounds to me like the real problem is the one issuing the orders in Syria. Americans are now on the verge of committing billions of dollars of money we do not have to impact an area of the world that already hates us. Here at home we have millions who cannot find a job. We have millions more who cannot feed their families with the paycheck they bring home. All the while our roads and bridges need desperate repair. We need new school buildings for our children. We have made our military do more with less but we continue to ask them to do more. We continue to put our aging seniors at risk as we make it harder for us to pay social security and cover our huge medical tab. Needless to say the tax debt for our children and grandchildren grows all the more. Syria means additional taxes, not less taxes. Many of us can still remember how tired we were of Vietnam. My brother served a year in Vietnam and it was a long year for our family. Fortunately, he came home. An older friend who lived just up the road named Junior was killed in Vietnam. Ill never forget his funeral. The expression on his fathers face said it all when a finely dressed soldier handed him the folded American flag and expressed his appreciation on behalf of America for Juniors service. Vietnam went on for 12 long years. It was a senseless waste of at least 58,000 American lives and for so long it seemed it would never end. We endured Iraq for eight years and lost almost 4,500 more soldiers and yet today the country is in constant chaos. Today we have allowed Afghanistan to surpass Vietnam as our longest war. With all the noise about Syria do not forget we are still in Afghanistan. We will spend 100 billion dollars in Afghanistan this year and risk the lives of more American men and women. The story we are hearing about Syria keeps changing. Weve been hearing about Syria for at least two years. Now we are hearing all the promises made by our president, secretary of state and others pertaining to our involvement. Over the months the promises will change, as there will be new developments, revelations and new commitments of weapons, food, soldiers and your money. Brace yourself because history is about to repeat itself and were already tired. Glenn Mollette is an American Columnist and speaker. He is the author of American Issues and nine other books.

Back in 1999, a new television quiz show called Who Wants to Be a Millionaire launched on television with Regis Philbin as the host. From the start, I liked that show, because it required some intelligence to participate, unlike so many shows on the air. I put it right up there with Jeopardy, the all-time great trivia knowledge show. In 2002, the show went into syndication, headed by Meredith Vieira, who hosted the show for 11 years. Her final show was in May of this year. I had read that Meredith was leaving, but I guess it didnt sink in. Then, right around Labor Day a couple of weeks ago, we (my wife and I) sat down to watch the DVR recording of the season first show, and some heavy-set guy wearing a Fedora (for you young folks, thats a kind of hat) yelled out who he was and this was his first show. Suddenly my comfort zone of watching this show was wiped away. First, I was always taught not to wear a hat indoors, that was the initial reaction. Second, I didnt catch the guys name at the beginning of the show, and had to wait until the credits to learn his name was Cedric the Entertainer. To me, he wasnt very entertaining. The smooth flow, the good-natured banter with the audience and the contestants, was gone. It was a forced humor, the kind that usually needs a laugh track. Even the contestants seemed a little stranger than usual. They also made one change the contestants relatives are now seated a couple of rows back but in direct line of the camera, so theyre on the screen almost all the time. I guess thats good for them, but when someone wins $25,000, they have to negotiate over other people to get a hug. One of the things Meredith said when she took the job originally was that there werent enough shows on TV where parents could sit down and watch with children without being embarrassed, and it was true. After seeing the first few shows with Cedric the Entertainer, Im not sure that philosophy is continuing. Meanwhile, Meredith, who turns 60 this December, will host a talk show starting next year. You might remember she was an original host of The View. Ill probably watch a little to see what its like, but talk shows like that arent exactly my thing. If they were, Id be watching one of my favorites, Katie Couric, every day. So I wish the best of luck to Meredith Vieira, and Ill probably still watch recordings of Millionaire, fast-forwarding through the chatter of Cedric. One word of advice to the new host, though: Lose the hat, please.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

So here we are again, trying to analyze the aftermath of mass shooting. This time it was at a government facility, the Washington Navy Yard. The shooter killed 12 people, and then he himself was killed by police. There have been lots of tidbits coming out, but basically, no one knows why he turned silently violent and gunned down workers at a U.S. Navy facility. We just got finished listening to the trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 people in late 2009 at Fort Hood, Texas. He was recently convicted of 13 counts of murder and sentenced to death. Now another military installation is the scene of a mass murder. You would think, of all places, that a Navy Yard and an Army fort would be safe havens from this sort of violence. The incident also showed what we have said before the 24-hour instant news cycle isnt always the best way to get accurate information. We were told that there were three shooters, with one dead (that would have been Aaron Alexis). Eventually, the FBI and local authorities said there was only one shooter, and on Tuesday things calmed down around Washington, D.C. On Monday, the day of the shooting, workers were evacuated from several areas, a baseball game that was expected to draw thousands was called off, and traffic was snarled because of closed streets. Reports said that on Tuesday, things were better. We heard some people ask why there was still an investigation going on, when there was only one shooter and he was dead. But we agree there should be more study into this incident. Is it true he had a valid pass? Stories Tuesday said he entered the base armed with a shotgun, and then got a handgun from a security guard he had killed. Didnt anyone think it was strange that a computer specialist walked onto a Navy base with a shotgun? He lived in Fort Worth, Texas, Seattle and Washington, and was reportedly born in New York. He was once arrested for discharging a firearm in his apartment, and it went through his ceiling into the apartment above. He told police he was cleaning his gun and it went off. Later there were reports that he heard voices, and there was even a report to police that he told them people were talking to him through the walls. Still, he had clearance and a pass. So let the investigation continue. There are a lot of unanswered questions, and the results could help prevent things like this in the future. We know there are a lot of places in the country where you are not always safe. Now you can add military bases to that list. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY The aftermath of Navy shooting Who are you, and where is Meredith? The story of Syria: Are you getting tired of it yet? READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Theyre babies, tooPhotos of dead Syrian babies, as well as dead adults, are being regularly shown on TV and in print. These deaths are reported to be the result of nerve gas being used in the conflict in the Syrian Arab Republic. This coverage is to expose the disastrous violation of human rights in Syria. It is an open demonstration of what happens when the basic right to life is ignored. Why then does the media in the U.S. refuse to show photos of babies dead by abortion? For more than 40 years it has been public knowledge that greater than a million babies each year are deliberately put to death by the abortionists tools, and with the consent and approval of not only the parents, but consent and approval of the president of the U.S. and his administration, as well as approximately one half of the U.S. citizens, and the U.S. Supreme Court. Death by abortion, legal or illegal, is just as real as the deaths in Syria. When will our media expose abortion for what it is and publish photos of our aborted children? Mabel Ryan Life Education Ministry, Inc. Affordable Health CareIt sounds more like something you would read about Russia or China, however it is in the State of Florida. This past week Florida health officials have ordered Health Departments across the state to ban trained health counselors/navigators from explaining and helping some of the 3.5 million uninsured Floridians understand A.H.C. and sign up for health insurance. The federal government has given $8 million in grants to hire these counselors/navigators. How can this be harmful and why is the State banning it? Denying counseling to uninsured residents makes no sense whatsoever .CVS, Wallgreens, Rite Aid and Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius have announced a partnership and agents will be available at the stores as counselors. Is the governor and his party afraid to educate the public about health insurance for fear they may want insurance coverage? A.H.C. will allow approximately 8 million Floridians with pre-existing conditions to get insurance coverage for the first time. PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The changing season brings new experiences as well as challenges for the ever-adventurous Aries. Your social life expands, as do the opportunities at your workplace. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That recent period of uncertainty has passed. You can now feel more confident about making decisions, especially those that relate to an important personal relationship. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you might be faced with a number of tasks on your to-do list, try to take time out to enjoy the arts. Music, especially, can be soothing to the sensitive soul of a Gemini. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A disagreement with a colleague or friend is best resolved with open and frank discussion. Trying to force the other party to see things your way is bound to backfire. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) That Leonine pride might be ruffled by a colleagues challenge to one of your pet ideas. But stop growling and listen. You could learn something that will work to your advantage. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Someone in authority might decide to select you as a candidate for a project that carries more responsibilities. Be prepared to show why youre the right choice for the job. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) That new workplace problem should be dealt with as soon as possible. Leaving it unresolved for too long could lead to an even more unsettling and time-consuming situation. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might have to do some fancy juggling to keep both your work responsibilities and personal obligations on track. But ultimately, youll work it all out, as you always do. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might hear some upsetting things about a situation in your life. But dont be swayed by talk. Demand proof before making any decisions on the matter. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Dont risk depleting those precious energy levels by taking on more tasks than you can realistically handle. Also, remember to ask for help when you need it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) It might be difficult for the Aquarian who is used to giving advice to take counsel when offered. But its a good idea to listen to what trusted friends feel you should know. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Things might be a little unsettled as you move through a period of reassessment. But once you get your priorities sorted out, you should be ready to tackle an important decision. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Friday, September 20, 2013 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, September 20, 2013 www.smcitizen.com for a maximum of only 10,000 prisoners. The stockade was constructed on approximately 16 acres with a 15-foot high stockade log constructed wall in the shape of a rectangle approximately 18months before the end of the Civil War. Later the camp was enlarged to around 26 acres with no shelters except for flimsy shelters constructed by inmates out of anything to keep them out of the weather except what they could make utilizing blankets, tarps and brush. Andersonville is located approximately 60 miles south of Macon, Georgia. When the prison was crowded to its seams it held more than 32,000 wounded and starving prisoners in horrorable, indescribable conditions. The camp was full of starving and wounded troops where diseases and contaminated water existed. Before the Union troops liberated Andersonville, approximately 45,000 Union troops passed through the stockades gates. Those who perished were buried in mass graves. Almost 13,000 improvised individuals met their horrible demise at this black mark of the Civil War. There was one Union soldier who was ordered by the Confederates with the job of recording the names of those who died in prison. This man had to give the names to the prison office but only after secretly copying the names of the dead for himself. After the liberation of the prison by Union forces, this list became most valuable in the identification of the dead. Prisoners suffered greatly from hunger, exposure, and disease. The Confederate prison was generally under supplied with food and medical supplies. This was both for the prisoners and the guards. The guards would get their share of the food and what was left went to the prisoner population. Some prisoners were shot trying to escape but other than hunger, about one third of those who perished were from Scurvy and dysentery. If prisoners approached too close to the stockade wall they were shot. Some did just that to end their agony and misery. Andersonville prison was liberated and the commandant of the inner stockade was tried by a Union military tribunal on charges of conspiracy and murder. Henry Wirz was found guilty and sentence to death. He was hanged in Washington, D.C. within sight of the U.S. Capital Building. Wirz was the only Confederate official tried and convicted for war crimes as a result from the Civil War. The cemetery site at Camp Sumter (Andersonville) was established in 1865 as the Andersonville National Cemetery. Union soldiers who died at the camp and those buried elsewhere in the area were exhumed and buried in the National Cemetery. This cemetery has been used continuously since its establishment. The cemetery and the associated prison site became a unit of the National Park System in 1970. The National Historical Site at Andersonville has three components: The site of the former Camp Sumter military prison, the Andersonville National Cemetery and the National Prisoner of War Museum. The museum was opened in 1998 honoring all U.S. prisoners of wars. The facilities are located on the outskirts of Andersonville, Georgia. The hamlet of Andersonville is a must stop while visiting the National Historic Site. The hamlet, with a population from the 2010 census as 255, has many historical buildings in their original state during the Civil War period. One building on the main street is home to the Drummer Boy Museum. This museum has been described as the best Civil War museum anywhere in the United States by the Blue and Gray Magazine. A controversial monument in town standing high is a tribute to Captain Henry Wirz, Commander of the prison, who was the only Confederate executed for war crimes. It was a controversary when it was constructed as well as it is today. The United Daughters of the Confederacy erected the monument. Northern states erected monuments honoring soldiers from that particular state. The Wirz monument was erected in his honor hoping to vindicate his name. Andersonville is a very worthwhile stop in your travels northward. It is approximately 40 total miles from Interstate 75. It will bring to light history, no matter how bad it was, of the Civil War era especially the prisoner of war encampment, the Prisoner of War Museum, and the cemetery itself along with the small antebellum hamlet of Andersonville. PRISONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 6 Next week is National Dog Week. Its purpose is to educate all dog owners in their responsibilities to their pets and to their communities, particularly those organizations dedicated to caring for unwanted or lost dogs. Here in Pun Alley, we just go to the dogs.Thats the pitsA dog owner had a pit bull that hated to walk. The dog kept sitting down and bracing his feet so that his owner would have to drag him by his leash. The owner finally gave up when he realized he was creating a bottomless pit.Sleep talkingSally has a dog that talks in its sleep. One day a visitor was astonished to hear the dog bellow, My name is Christopher Columbus! I am 700 years old! I own America! I married Marilyn Monroe. When the visitor asked what was going on, Sally replied, Dont worry about it. Just let sleeping dogs lie.Vet visitA man took his Rottweiler to the vet and said to him, My dogs cross-eyed. Is there anything you can do for him? The vet said, lets have a look at him. So he picked up the dog and had a good look at his eyes. Well, said the vet Im going to have to put him down. Just because hes cross-eyed? asked the man. The vet replied, No, because hes heavy.Flea bitesIn 1922 the first canine scale was made, but it only weighed in dog pounds. The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue. The first flea circus opened, but a dog came by, and stole the show. If you think dogs cant count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them. A police dog is often the scenter of a drug arrest. Pet Owner: Every time a bell rings my dog goes and sits in the corner. Vet: Thats perfectly normal; hes a boxer. Dogs are not good dancers because they have two left feet. Diamonds are a girls best friend and dogs are a mans best friend. Now you know which sex has more sense. You can keep a barking dog quiet with hush puppies. A dog gave birth to puppies near the road and was cited for littering. Policeman: Excuse me, but your dog has been chasing a man on his bicycle. Dog owner: Are you crazy? My dog cant even ride a bicycle.Eye openerGeorge had worked late, and his Labrador was so overjoyed to see him arrive home that he jumped up just as George leaned down. Their heads collided, and George sported an impressive shiner for several weeks. He had to frequently repeat to co-workers and friends how he got it. One day on the elevator, a secretary whom he hadnt seen for some time looked at his black eye and exclaimed, My goodness, what happened to you? The dog did it, George wearily replied. A man standing next to George said knowingly, Ahh, you must own a boxer.From the poundAfter years of maintaining purebred dogs, people are exploring crossbreeds to get dogs with special characteristics. They crossed a Collie and a Lhasa Apso. The new breed is a Collapso, a dog that folds up for easy transport. They crossed a Pointer and a Setter. The new breed is a Poinsetter, a traditional Christmas pet. They crossed an Irish Water Spaniel and an English Springer Spaniel. The new breed is an Irish Springer, a dog fresh and clean. They crossed a Newfoundland and a Basset Hound. The new breed is a Newfound Asset Hound, a dog for financial advisors. They crossed a Bloodhound and a Labrador. The new breed is a Blabador, a dog that barks incessantly. They crossed a Collie and a Malamute. The new breed is a Commute, a dog that travels to work.Bad dog?It was the end of the day when the policeman parked the police van in front of the station. As he gathered his equipment, his K-9 partner was barking, and the policeman saw a little boy staring in at him. Is that a dog you got back there? he asked. It sure is, the policeman replied. Puzzled, the boy stared at the dog and finally said, Whatd he do?

Many died from diseases caused by the polluted water supply which was contained with fecal matter and other bacterial components from sick and dying men. Water was diverted from a near-by stream into the prison via a hand dug trench. Imagine thousands of Union soldiers utilizing this water source. Today, the stream and spring still exist where the prison once stood. A sign is posted warning visitors not to drink the water. It was polluted when the prison was in full use during the Civil War and is still polluted today. Remember Andersonville? You more than likely were taught a little about this prison and what transpired there during American history classes where the subject of the Civil War was being studied during your school years. Camp Sumter was the name of the prison but was commonly known as Andersonville. The camps early stages were designed PLEASESEEPRISON, PAGE7 PRISONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Front of the National Prisoner or War Museum located at Andersonville.

The model is located in a museum in the center of the town of Andersonville. Statue at the POW Museum near the prison depicting starving prisoners. Breaking the rules resulted in punishment at Andersonville Prison. Capt Henry Wirz, Commander of the prison, used a series of chains and balls to manacle prisoners in rows. Monument in the center of the road in the town of Andersonville erected in the memory of Capt Henry Wirz, commander of the prison, who was convicted and sentence to death for war crimes. The monument, which is still controversial today, was erected hoping to vindicate Wirz's name. Photos by Bob Woods. More can be found at www.smcitizen.com THE RACKETEER By John Grisham The Racketeer departs from Grishams other legal thrillers in that the protagonist, a disbarred lawyer serving a 10-year sentence for RICO violations he unwittingly stumbled intois black. When the book opens Malcolm Bannister has served half of his sentence. But given the dark realities of prison life hes eager to find a way out of serving any more time. And the way out just might be a loophole called Rule 35 that reduces a defendants sentence if he provides substantial help in prosecuting another person. Malcolms legal skills have greatly improved since becoming a jailhouse lawyer and helping four other prisoners gain their release. An already smart man has become even smarter. At stake now is the murder of a federal judge, Raymond Fawcett, at his remote vacation home. There are few clues at the crime scene but a large, ransacked safe points to robbery rather than to revenge. When Mal finally gets the FBIs attention, he claims to know the identity of the judges killer. Hell reveal the name once his terms are accepted, he tells them. And hes thought of everything: immediate freedom, Witness Protection, a surgically altered face and a new identity. Going forward the plot becomes complicated and hard to describe without creating spoilers. So suffice it to say that its a merry romp with Bannister staying two steps ahead of the gullible feds. If theres a downside to this irresistible read, its Malcolms masquerading as a documentary film director. This section interrupts the fast pace, goes on way too long, and seems irrelevant for some time. A lawyer finding himself in legal trouble has figured into other Grisham novels but in this latest thriller theres no trumpeting a miscarriage of justice. Readers are likely to conclude that crime actually does pay. The Racketeer is a fresh spin on a great story tellers formula. Recommended.

Only five Democrats joined the entire Republican caucus to vote in favor of the legislation sponsored by Tennessee Republican Diane Black.

Thomas Lacinski, who said he is a physicist who has taught at the college level, gives his time to the program. I didnt realize how many children were from dysfunctional families. He said he seldom had contact with children this young before he started in the program. They need a little shove, he said of the children. Everything you do for them is brand new. He drew a laugh when he said that it was hard to tell the children were disadvantaged. They dont even know how to lie yet. He added, Were giving these children a little push so they fit right in.

SZUTAR Special to the CitizenThe Sunday Arts Concert at Countryside Church for Oct. 13 will feature Dr. Sarah Satterfield and Arnold Irchai. The concert begins at 3 p.m. and includes works composed by Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887-1959) a native of Rio de Janerio. Villa-Lobos, essentially self-taught, produced over 1,000 works. For the second half of the concert, Satterfield and Irchal will perform selections by Jean Francaix born in LeMans, France. According to Satterfield the composer was known by his sense of humor, which comes through in his music. Irchai began studying the bassoon at the Leningrad Special Music School for Gifted Children and continued his studies at the State Leningrad Conservatory where he received his masters and doctorate degrees. He has performed with major symphony orchestras throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas since his school years and has extensively performed solo recitals as well as chamber music recitals. During his career he has gained extensive teaching credentials at colleges and universities in the United States, Russia, Italy and Spain. Currently, he is the principal bassoonist for the Ocala Symphony Orchestra and the Gainesville Chamber Orchestra. Satterfield received a Ph.D. in Music History and Literature with an outside specialization in art from the University of Florida, a masters in Music in Flute Performance from San Diego Southern University and a bachelors in Music Education from Furman University. The Sunday Arts Concerts at Countryside Presbyterian Church is at 7768 S.W. Highway 200 in Ocala. For further information on future concerts call 352-237-4633.

A freewill offering during the concert will benefit Interfaiths Food 4 Kids program. The Autumn Jazz Experience showcases Remillards band, which is popular at venues around Ocala and The Villages. The band, which donates its talents to the concert, features Remillard on piano, Mike Holt on sax, Dean Millward on bass and Don Gold on drums with a special appearance by Buzz Lewis. Autumn Jazz Experience is the 5th annual concert sponsored by Our Saviour Lutheran Church to benefit Food 4 Kids. More than $9,000 has been donated to Food 4 Kids through the concert program. Food 4 Kids fills backpacks with non-perishable foods for students who may live in homes where there is inadequate food on weekends. The program began in 2004 when teachers noted that some students were not eating over the weekend. It now reaches into 32 schools, providing food for more than 1,400 students. The concert began when church members sought a way to celebrate Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit, which is marked in late spring. Worship committee member Mary Johnson shared the tradition of a Pentecost jazz concert popular at her home church in Columbus, Ohio, and the concert was reinvented in Marion Oaks, with the goal of experiencing the joy of Pentecost through music while supporting Food 4 Kids This year the committee opted to move the concert to fall at the suggestion of the band, because many of its fans return north before Pentecost. Our Saviour Lutheran Church also operates a satellite pantry site for Interfaith Emergency Services. The pantry is open Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and distributes food and hygiene items to qualifying families in need who fall below the federal poverty guidelines. It has served more than 2,000 individuals in its first year of service. The church is centrally located in Marion Oaks, just west of the community center. Light refreshments will be served.

Pass the AceMany people arent aware that on Saturday evenings at 6:30, an avid group of card players gather in the card room at 6:30 to play Pass the Ace. For more than a dozen years these people have played and never once has their activity be noted or publicized so today we rectify that fact. Pass the Ace is a card game that is relatively easy to learn but does take some time to learn the strategy of not getting caught with the low cards. It has been played around camp fires; at family gatherings and even in our clubhouse for years. If you would like to learn to play then join this happy group on Saturdays.From Your ReporterLast Saturday evening I was walking through our Clubhouse and found some interesting things happening. I entered through the pool room to find some ladies practicing their shots and joking around with each other. Passing the card room, I saw a group of happy people sitting at the large table playing what I found out was a game of Pass the Ace. Chatting with them, I found out they had been playing unnoticed for more than a dozen years. I asked if they werent getting hungry after playing that long. Seriously, very few people know that they meet every week for some relaxing cards. Entering the patio I found another group of people sitting around the tables at pool side just chatting and having a quiet evening. Swimmers were in the pool and they would occasionally come out to join the gathering. At the Bocce Ball courts there were even more people playing a lively game and laughing both with and at each other. Everyone was doing something different but the common denominator for all of them was that they were having a great time. One other thing that all these events had in common was that they are all free. If you live in Cherrywood and you arent enjoying your Saturday evenings, try joining your neighbors for these activities. We have a truly fun and active community. If you have any suggestions, ideas or comments about the Cherrywood section of your Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

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. 000FXZT 000G2FW For more information, visit our website: dBhearingsolutions.com We accept discounts from all insurances!

Arrested were Fares Rabah, 41; Ahmed Mohsin, 36 and Ahmad Warayat, 27. Each is charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance synthetic marijuana with intent to distribute, and possession of drug paraphernalia. As of Wednesday morning, the trio was being held in the County Jail under no bond. Rabah lists a Heath, Texas, address. The other two listed Tampa addresses. According to the report, on Monday evening, Lt. Dennis Joiner, commander of the Marion County Sheriffs Office Southwest District, received an anonymous tip concerning suspicious activity at a closed business, the former Sunrise donut shop, at 10155 S.W. County Road 484, just west of State Road 200. The tipster called around 7:30 p.m., and provided details about the manufacturing of K2 and that the men, at the closed business, were loading K2 into a moving truck. According to the arrest affidavits, Joiner went to the store and saw a large rental truck at the business. He made contact with Rabah. In plain view, Joiner could see packages of what he believed was synthetic marijuana. Rabah said he was picking up empty packages to take to Tampa. After telling Joiner there were two men inside, he gave the lieutenant permission to enter the store. According to the affidavit, once inside the business Lt. Joiner in plain view observed next to a pool table numerous bags containing packages of synthetic marijuana. To the right of the business Lt. Joiner observed several plastic table work stations. Lt. Joiner observed some of the tables had small plastic containers with empty packages of synthetic marijuana. Also in a back room Lt. Joiner located several plastic containers which contained synthetic marijuana.

BY JIM CLARK EditorDo you like to read? Do you like to help children reach their potential? If so, Reading Pals wants you. Jan Hathaway, Reading Pals coordinator, spoke to the State Road 200 Coalition last week. Adults in the program read to kindergarten age children in the local public schools, helping the children in learning to have a more positive approach. Hathaway said of many of these children that its really scary coming to our school system not prepared for success. She said that some of the children dont know the alphabet and some dont even know their real name, noting that some children are called by nicknames at home and when a teacher in school calls them by their formal name, they dont know the teacher is talking to them. The said there were 330 children identified a needing a little extra help with their reading. She said after working with the Reading Pals, they excelled in growth beyond kindergarten classes. Volunteers work minimal time with the children, about 30 Like to read? Little school children are waiting for you PLEASESEEREADING, PAGE5 BY BOB WOODS Special to the CitizenWhat a tragedy. A tragedy that was even more inhumane then the Civil War itself. How could man be so cruel to one another even though the cruelty was against their enemy adversaries? It was brother against brother, fathers against sons, family members against each other and friends against friends. The tragedy being referred to is the Confederate Prisoner of War prison located at Andersonville, Georgia. Walking through the area and on the hallow ground that was once the POW encampment, goose bumps appear and hairs on ones arms rise.
