Recently, the Ocala West Methodist Church was a busy place with area Boy Scout youth and adult leaders having activities. The Youth had a car wash and breakfast serving while the adults not supervising had training sessions. Troops from all around went to the adult leader training while the youth did their activities. Many thanks are due to the church for hosting the activities. The car wash was a fund raiser for the youth going to Philmont Scout ranch in New Mexico next summer. There was a donation jar available as there was no fixed price for the carwash. Approximately $200 was raised for the trip. Other ways for earning the money will be selling popcorn around the area and Camp cards will be sold after the new year starts. Please help our future leaders with their fundraisers and or helping as a adult leader. For more information about helping, call Jim or Stephanie Salmon at 352-843-0093.

We dont hide our prices. All our prices are here and you WONT be asked or told you need to pay more! Hearing and Hearing Aid Pricing and Technology Disclosed 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.

Friday, September 27, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4~ Friday, September 27, 2013 www.smcitizen.com 000G6OC Call John Casabianca for more information on this cruise and for the next sale date. We have to pay for tickets for shows at least 30 days prior to the trip. It can often be a real problem for us to add somebody to a trip after this cut-off date. Theaters many times cant give us additional tickets, or if they can, these tickets are for seats not near our group. Please try to understand and help us by purchasing your tickets as far in advance as possible. Ticket sales for most January-June, 2014, trips are this October. Another issue that often arises is not being able to place travelers with their friends at a dinner theatre table. Understandably, they are disappointed. The dinner theaters have tables set up for 2, 4 or 8 seats per table. When travelers insist on sitting at the table where they are the odd seat, such as 9 at a table for 8, it can create problems for the theater staff in moving about between tables. So, please recognize this and be willing to sit with some of your other Oak Run neighbors. You never know you might just make some additional close friends that way.

Beginning next week and all through the month of October, flocks of flamingos will be visible on the properties of several area businesses, big and small. The flocks will move from location to location throughout town, as a reminder to all.

College Road More on Page 7 AN INVIS IBLE THREAD B y L aura Schroff and Alex Tresniowski When her incredible friendship with Maurice began Laura Schroff was a 35-year-old advertising executive walking New Yorks streets on a Monday afternoon. An 11year-old African-American panhandler asks her for money because hes hungry. She blows him off, explaining to readers that in Manhattan theyre everywhere; you learn not to see them. But she doesnt get far before she stops and turns around. Still, she doesnt give him money. Instead, she buys him lunch at McDonalds where they both order the same mega-calorie mealBig Macs, fries, and thick chocolate shakes. Its the start of a decadeslong friendship. There would be 150 more Mondays during which Laura learns that the childs father is a gang member and his mother a heroin addict and that the only Christmas present he remembers is a joint his aunt gave him when he was 6. In time she would take this boy whos never left the city to her sisters beautiful home on Long Island. He will visit her posh apartment regularly after some awkward moments with other residents. When she offers to make his school lunches and leave them with the doorman, his response moves her to tears: If you make me lunch, he said, will you put it in a brown bag? I really didnt understand the question. Okay, sure. But why do you want it in a brown bag? Because when I see kids come to school with their lunch in a brown paper bag, that means someone cares about them. At times the narrative shifts from Maurice to Lauras own story. Her father was a brute to his family but beloved by all outside the home. He regularly beat his wife, humiliated his children, and destroyed furniture in alcoholic rages. Unlucky in love as well, she chalked up a bad marriage at an early age. Longing for a child she nevertheless determined that the men she dated didnt qualify as fathers. Maurice, then, became her child. The poignant message of this book is the power of committing to an individual. Schroff had no grandiose ideas about altering the course of homelessness. She just wanted to change the course of Maurices life. I believed then and I believe now that there is something in the universe that brings people who need each other together.

Every Monday Whit Brown comes from Orlando to call for our dances. Square dancing is a good way to make new friends and have fun. Its an activity that is easy to learn and is a good way to exercise without it seeming like its hard work. Its not just good exercise for your body, but for your mind too! Square dancing is recommended by the Mayo Clinic for its health benefits. Square dance has been generally recognized as the national folk dance of the United States. It is interesting to note that although its our national folk dance, it has migrated to almost every country on earth. If you journey to nonEnglish speaking countries you may not be able to talk to people there but you would be able to dance with them. Thats because all square dance calls are in English regardless of the native language. The club is having a class for beginning students starting on Oct. 7 at 12:45 p.m. The first lesson is free so you dont have anything to lose. This is your chance to have fun, get fit, and make new friends. The church is at 9330 S.W. 105th St. Look for the Ocala Twirlers sign at the rear of the church.

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. 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.

My Three Sons has become renowned for their harmonies and wide scope of a cappella and barbershop music.

Make your check payable to ORHA; please, no cash.Performing Arts Company The Wizard of OzThe Wizard of Oz will be here before you know it! And, WOW, wait til you see the amazing set for each scene in the show! The scenery for the farm, the woods, the plaza in Emerald City, the wizards chamber, the witchs castle and the haunted forest includes not only the walls but also set pieces for bushes, apple trees, boulders, the farm house, Professor Marvels wagon, and a hot air balloon, to mention a few. Dick Caza, our set designer and head of construction and painting, is to be congratulated and appreciated. He joined our theater group this spring, immediately took on this challenge, and boy, has he delivered! When you see the show and are impressed with the set, let Dick know. He and his construction and painting crew, who are all Performing Arts Company members, have put in many long (and hot) hours working on them, all because they love the theater. They volunteer their time and skills to make it happen. And speaking of the set, it has also set a new record for back stage. We usually have two stage hands with three or four cast members helping reset the stage for the next scene of the show, but for The Wizard of Oz we have six full time stage hands and eight cast members involved! Set/stage coordinator Patty Waddell, working with Stage Manager Maggie Naypaver, would like to thank stage hands Bob Kreider, Dee Gragg, Joyce Sylvia and Jerri Shorey for their commitment to being these unseen workers. And, a special thanks go to the cast members, Linda Noel, Shari Weber, Billie Gabel, Clara Laskay, Teresa Claypool, Kathy Stanz, Howard Spies and Flo Feltman for helping us out! In addition to learning their blocking and lines, they have to remember when to be where backstage for the next scene change. Thanks to all of them for their patience with having to practice with phantom set pieces, and with the ever-evolving stage management plan as we learned about the set pieces. Dont miss this show!

BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenLast weekends hostage-taking and the murder of at least 62 people at the Westgate Shopping Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, has its roots in the U.S. governments intervention in Somalia, which began in the 1990s. Although there is no justification for killing innocents, it is fair to point out that alShabaab, the Islamist group that committed the attack on the mall and that controls parts of Somalia, would probably not be in power if not for the United States. As Scott Horton, host of a nationwide radio program focusing on foreign policy, points out in the September issue of Future of Freedom (which I edit), the U.S. government has intervened directly in Somalia and backed repeated invasions by neighboring African states, including Kenya. In the process, a relatively moderate government was overthrown, resistance to invaders was radicalized, and the al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabaab gained partial control, which would have been unlikely without that intervention. Horton, drawing on firsthand reporting by journalist Jeremy Scahill, notes that after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the Bush administration compiled a list of countries ripe for regime change, including Somalia, none of which had any involvement whatsoever in the attacks or any real ties to those who did. Luckily for the Pentagon and CIA, it was not very difficult to find cutthroat warlords willing to accept their cash to carry out targeted assassinations and kidnappings against those they accused of being Islamists or anyone else they felt like targeting. A backlash followed. Somalias Islamic Courts Union, a coalition of a dozen groups, put down the warlords and the U.S.-sponsored Transitional Federal Government. The ICU then declared the reign of Islamic law, Horton writes. That, of course, was none of Americas business, and even if it had been, the Somali regime lacked the power to create an authoritarian religious state like, say, U.S. ally Saudi Arabia. And Somalias traditional Muslim beliefs were much more laid-back and tolerant than those in Arabia. This was unacceptable to the Bush administration, so in late 2006 it had Ethiopia, its Christian client state and an old Somalia antagonist, invade and overthrow the ICU, with CIA and specialoperations officers leading the attack. In 2008, however, Somalis kicked the Ethiopians out. Helping in the effort was, in Hortons words, the youngest and least influential group in the ICU, alShabaab (the youth). On its way out of power the Bush administration, seeking to save face, got the old men of the ICU to agree to accept the form of the Transitional Federal Government. This only inflamed al-Shabaab, which accused them of being American agents. It was only then years after the whole mess began that it declared loyalty to Osama bin Ladens al-Qaeda. It started acting like al-Qaeda too, implementing Arabian-style laws and punishments in the areas they dominated, such as cutting off the hands of those accused of stealing, Horton writes. Unfortunately, the Obama team has continued along the same disastrous path: After the Ethiopians withdrew, [the administration sent in the armies of Uganda and Burundi under the auspices of the African Union to hunt down and destroy al-Shabaab. Then came the Kenyans, who apparently panicked after luxury resorts near their border had come under attack. In 2011 the Ethiopians reinvaded. Kenyan forces took the port city of Kismayo from alShabaab in 2012 and loudly declared victory when the rebels melted away. But the stubborn insurgency continues the fight. The Americans, for their part, continue to back the invading forces, as well as what passes for the government in Mogadishu, with hundreds of tons of weapons and tens of millions of dollars. The CIA and the U.S. military still take a direct hand, not only by helping the nominal government, but also by attacking Somalis with helicopters, cruise missiles, and drones and, Horton writes, by overseeing at least two different torture dungeons. The horrendous attack in Nairobi has the news media abuzz over possible terrorist threats to soft targets such as shopping malls, not only in Africa but also in the United States itself. As we think about this, we should realize that this is a threat made in Washington, DC. How many times do we have to experience what the CIA calls blowback before the American people cry, Enough!Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va.

Friday, September 27, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 27, 2013 Synthetic marijuana being manufactured right here in view of the State Road 200 Corridor? Who knew? Well, obviously someone knew because Lt. Dennis Joiner, commander of the Southwest District of the Marion County Sheriffs Office, received a tip last week about the supposedly vacant store which once house a doughnut shop and, before that, a barbecue restaurant, people have said. Its located in a high traffic area along County Road 484, just a few blocks west of 200. Remember that column from a couple of weeks ago, when I said that the post office needed a map because they called this area Dunnellon? Well, that fact came into play last week. When you woke up and turned on the TV news, you saw reporters saying they were at a doughnut shop in Dunnellon. Im sure the folks in Dunnellon loved that, linking their city to this drug operation, when in reality it was 12 miles away. I stopped to take a picture of the sign and the shop that morning, and ran into the reporter for WESH-Channel 2 out of Orlando. I mentioned that people around here consider that area Ocala, and that State Road 200 was just a couple of blocks away, but she said she would stick with using Dunnellon. Hey, never let the facts stand in the way of a good story. She was following the line put out by the Sheriffs Office, which was using the mailing address. In the news release, though, the office gave the address with Dunnellon, but immediately added in parenthesis, just off State Road 200, giving perspective to the location. Anyhow, back to synthetic marijuana. I did a lot of reading to find out what it was and why it is illegal. After all, those electronic cigarettes arent subject to cigarette laws. Why is fake marijuana subject to pot laws? Turns out its the chemicals that are used to make the drug. The state has made those chemicals illegal, but every time they do, the manufacturers seem to change the chemicals. Still, its a drug that can get people high, and for that reason alone should be banned. And you know the manufacturers are in it for only one thing to get people hooked so they have to buy more and make the manufacturers rich. Well, four of them went to jail, including three on the scene and the person who had the lease, who was arrested later. Following these cases through the courts should be interesting. Two of them were from Tampa, the third from Texas, and no home address was available for the woman arrested later. Its obvious, though, that we are being infiltrated by out-of-town elements, and thats not good. Kudos to Lt. Joiner for following up on the tip he received. Lets all be alert to strange happenings and report them. Maybe we can cut into the drug trade, even if its only a little bit.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Many people who have moved to the western Marion County area have come from other parts of the U.S. that are very familiar with tornadoes. They know that when a tornado, or possibility of one, is approaching, the safest place is an interior room. Actually, the safest place is a bunker or a basement, but this is Florida and we dont normally see those down here. Tuesday evenings tornado warning accompanied a series of strong storms associated with a front that was passing through the area. It had rained most of the day, but suddenly things got severe. Western Marion County was one of the areas under a warning. The winds were strong enough to knock over the box in front of the Citizen office in Kingsland Plaza. One TV channel reported that in some areas, rain was falling at a rate of 5 inches per hour (thats the rate, not the actual rainfall). But unless you were watching locally-based television, or you have a weather radio, you probably didnt know anything about it. That brings up the question: Why dont we have tornado sirens? Florida averages 52 tornadoes a year, second most in the nation. Only Texas, with 137, has more. The tornadoes, however, are usually small, as the state only averages two deaths per year. Many other states have tornado sirens. They go off when a possible tornado is sighted in the area. They warn people to take shelter immediately. In the aftermath of some of the big storms, even recently in Oklahoma, you heard people say that they heard the sirens and got out of harms way. Some of us remember civil defense sirens in the 1950s, ready to be used as warnings of an attack during the cold war. Many communities had drills, and some may remember being taught to get under their desks in school, a move we now know was ridiculous in light of the damage a nuclear weapon can cause. This warning plan needs to be revisited, not because of a panic that a nuclear weapon was coming, but notice that a severe storm is ready to strike. As Floridas population grows with the influx of people from other parts of the nation, we realize that those people could grow complacent when they dont hear a warning. So a word of advice: When you see a storm approaching, turn to your weather or local station and find out whats going on. Its better to be informed, even if it doesnt pan out. There may be that one occasion when you wish you had known what was on the horizon. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

According to one Internet source September has over 90 daily holidays, most of which are practically unknown to us. Today is designated as Native American Day, although it is also celebrated on many different days. Our travel down Pun Alley takes us to some stories with several reservations.Another studyThe old Cherokee chief sat in his hut on the reservation, smoking the Ceremonial pipe, eyeing the U.S. government officials sent to interview him. Chief Two Eagles, one official began, You have observed the white man for 90 years. You have observed his wars and his material ways. You have seen everything he has done. The Chief nodded that it was so. The official continued, Considering all these events, in your opinion, did the white man go wrong? The Chief stared at the government officials for over a minute, and then calmly replied: When white man found the land, Indians were running it. No taxes. No debt. Plenty buffalo. Plenty beaver. Women did all the work. Medicine man free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing. The Chief leaned back and smiled, White man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that.The same in any languageA Seminole Indian came to Ocala to apply for a job at a horse farm. When asked what his wifes name is, he replied, Whumpo Semos Noja. The interviewer appeared confused, so the Indian explained, Thats her Indian name; it translates in English to Three-Old-Horses. More puzzled than before the interviewer asked, Yeah, but what does Three-Old-Horses mean? The Indian sighed and said, Nag, Nag, Nag.Todays Native AmericanA tourist walking through an Indian reservation stopped to speak to an Indian who was sitting in a chair smoking his pipe. White man, said the tourist, is heap glad to meet big Indian man. White man hope big chief feel tip-top this morning. Hey, Joe, called out the Indian, come over here and get a load of this guy. Hes great! Tales With Some ReservationsIt was claimed that the coming of the Iron Horse would bring great prosperity to the Indians, but they had reservations. This problem with illegal immigration is nothing new. The Indians had a special name for it. They called it white people. The Indians gave Chris a bill for docking his boat. Luckily, Columbus was carrying his Discover Card. Did you read about the New York nightclub just opened by Indians? They charge you twenty-four dollars for a Manhattan. A San Diego band of Indians are unable to have their own casino because of their small size. Instead, they are marketing a weight loss program that guarantees that youll lose a pound a day. This group is known as the diet tribe. A band of Indians once lived on a bumpy stretch of Florida land that was covered with little hills and thus it became known as the Semi-Knoll tribe.Hop to ItA tourist driving through Arizona saw a middleaged smiling squaw at a roadside stand. She was surrounded by sixteen happy children ranging in age from a toddler to a teenager. The tourist asked, Are those all your children? Oh, yes, replied the Indian while simultaneously trying to sell me blankets and other relics on her stand. With a huge family like that, dont you have lots of disagreements? Oh, no, she declared, Were just one great big Hopi family.No bull about itAn Indian walked into a cafe with a shotgun in one hand pulling a buffalo with the other. He said to the waiter, Want coffee. The waiter replied, Sure, Chief. Coming right up. He got the Indian a tall mug of coffee. The Indian drank the coffee in one gulp, turned and blasted the buffalo with the shotgun causing parts of the animal to splatter everywhere and then he just walked out. The next morning the Indian returned with his shotgun and another buffalo. He told the waiter, Want coffee. The waiter said, Whoa! Were still cleaning up your mess from yesterday. What was all that about, anyway? The Indian smiled and proudly said, Training for position in United States Congress. Come in, drink coffee, shoot the bull, leave mess for others to clean up, disappear for rest of day. Friday, September 27, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, September 27, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Am I getting old or his time passing faster than it used to? It seems I just settle down to do something and before I know it, it is over. Back in the day, a minute had 60 seconds. An hour had 60 minutes. A day had 24 hours. Oh, for those good old days. I am not exactly sure how many seconds a minute has or how many minutes an hour has because he goes by so fast I cannot keep track. Technology has taken over and I for one object. For example, I like looking at my wristwatch and seeing the second hand slowly tick around the dial. Now, we have cell phones with a digital clock. Unlike these digital clocks, all they tell me is what time it is right now. I like to look at a wristwatch and get a whole view of time: past, present and future. I know that a week does not have seven days anymore. I set out on Monday with high hopes of getting something accomplished during the week and by the time I clear my throat, it is Friday afternoon. Where did all that time go? Years ago, the Beatles had a song called Eight Days a Week. Nowadays it is more like three days a week: yesterday, today and tomorrow! Today is tomorrows yesterday and I am not exactly sure how to keep up anymore. By the time I get to tomorrow, I forgot what I was supposed to do today. Then, when I get to today, I cannot remember what I did yesterday. I used to plan a whole week of activity, now that luxury is yesterdays news, or is it tomorrows headlines? I like summer, which may explain why it goes so fast. Maybe I should take a chapter from Murphys Law and say I do not like summer, then it would drag by a without end in sight. Interestingly, the thing I like to do the most goes by so quickly, that which I hate doing drags on for centuries. Which has me thinking maybe I should not voice what I like or do not like? One thing I like about summer, when I can catch my breath and enjoy it, is the fact that it is made up of those lazy, hazy days I enjoy so much. Not having a schedule, not having a deadline, not having anybody telling me what I should or should not do. Ah, those crazy, lazy days of summer. The fact that I did not get much done during the summer is no big deal. If anybody asked me if I got anything accomplished, I just said, Hey, its summer. Relax. I will get to it eventually. Well, eventually has caught up with me and it is called winter. The difference between summer and winter is that during the summer, you can get away with doing nothing but in the winter, there is nothing you can get away with. During the summer my wife will ask me if I have done such and such and I respond by saying, Its summer, Ill get to it. I got plenty of time. During the winter, my wife will remind me of all the things I was supposed to do during the summer and that now I have to do because winter is a coming. Summer is hazy and lazy, while winter is Hurry up and get it done. More is expected from a person during the winter months that during the summer. I object very strenuously to this kind of attitude. Of course, this attitude comes from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She has the idea that winter, or at least the beginning of winter, is the time to clean everything. By everything, she is including the garage. Now that summer is over and the lawn does not need to be mowed anymore, I can, according to her logic, transpose that energy into cleaning up things. Then she will confront me with a favorite saying of hers, Cleanliness is next to godliness. One of these days, when I get up the courage, I am going to ask her to show me where that verse is in the Bible. I kind of think a person can be too clean, like squeaky clean. You know how squeaky gets on peoples nerves, especially mine. My favorite saying is, Laziness is next to everything. Perhaps that is why I like summer so much. There are shades of laziness that can only be exploited in the good old summertime. Some people, like the one who shares a residence with me, things that laziness is a very negative thing. This person honestly believes that if she is not doing something all the time she is lazy. Something good can be said about being lazy. You get to savor a moment of nonactivity. The thing I like so much about summer is the activity you do do is only the activity that you want to do like sitting on the back porch, drinking a glass of lemonade, which is what summer is all about. Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, understood this concept very well. He says, To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven, (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Time goes by so quickly that a person hardly has enough time to really appreciate the time that they have. How fast the shades of summer have faded Out to Pastor Rev.

Learn more about music than you ever knew a long with learning more about your own individual talents than you ever knew; all of this for just a couple of hours per week. The Songbirds are open to all and welcoming to all voices but they especially need men to fill in the bass parts so give it a couple of minutes of thought and then show up for practice on Wednesdays. Youll be glad you did.From your reporterEarlier this week, Marty Duesel, a fellow officer of the Veterans Club, and I met at the flag pole in front of the clubhouse. Neither of us planned this meeting; we just happened to be in the same place; at the same time; with the same intentions. Together we lowered the American flag to half staff. Yet again, our nation was in mourning as 12 people had been murdered by a gunman who penetrated the security system of a military base and killed them. Their crime was nothing more than reporting for work at the Navy Yard in Washington D.C. In addition to the victims, hundreds of peoples lives would be forever changed on that day. For the victims families, life will never be the same. Never again will they have their loved one sitting across from them at breakfast. Family reunions; Thanksgiving; birthdays; and all other special occasions will be observed but there will be one empty chair at the table and an empty space in their hearts. Those that were wounded will never be the same either. After convalescing, their lives will be forever changed as memories flood back each time they go to work; when they hear a loud noise; or when they pace the floor in the middle of the night unable to sleep. So often forgotten in these tragic situations are the first responders. Police who engaged the shooter and killed him; ambulance personnel and firefighters who fought to save the lives of the victims; they too will suffer. In their hearts they will question what they could have done differently; in their dreams they will hear the anguished cries and moans of pain. For the families of all of these victims we take time out to remember them; to pray for them and to thank them for what they do. We will never know their names like we know sports figures and entertainers or other so called idols but each of them must be told that they are our heroes. To all of you who wear a badge or the patch of EMT/Paramedic; to all who rush to our aid in times of horror and danger; we thank you and salute you.

Everyone expected the Stone Creek team to be the team to beat, but as it turned out, they just couldnt put their wins together and ended at the bottom of the pack. The Overholser Eye team, which led the league for quite a while, surprisingly fell apart during the last month and slowly began to head to the bottom of the league. The Stone Creek and Overholser Eye teams ended up sharing last place when the season was over. The Wise Way and Cebert Wealth teams, which, started out in the cellar, slowly started putting some key wins together. Cebert Wealth was the first to climb out of the cellar and during the last month of the season was close to taking over the top spot in the league from Overholser Eye, which were beginning to start their descent. Finally, with the last two weeks, Cebert Wealth took over the lead and began pulling away. The Wise Way team also began putting some key wins together and during the last two weeks of the season moved into second place, challenging the Cebert Wealth team for the lead. There were now four games to go and the Wise Way team was in striking distance, but couldnt maintain its winning streak and in the final two games, they lost a key game, allowing the Cebert Wealth team to become the league champions. It turned out to be a good season full of fun for all.Travel ToppersNow that the hot summer is almost over, it is time for you and the returning snow birds to think of the holidays.

Monday, Sept. 16, more than 200 residents showed up for Oktoberfest; the last in the series of this years 100 Days of Summer events. The German-themed program was a huge success with entertainment by Northern Sounds; food; fun and prizes and everything was free for our Cherrywood family. A delicious dinner of bratwurst and sauerkraut; potato salad; roll and ice cream were served up quickly and efficiently by our Social Committee volunteers. The serving line opened at 5:30 with Geri directing the various tables and by ten minutes to six; everyone had been served. Northern Sounds is a very talented group that played German drinking songs; polkas; novelty tunes and a wide variety of American popular songs. This band plays several different instruments and they really struck a chord with the guests. The audience was definitely in sync with their music as they danced the night away. The laughter and good times shared by all who attended was a true mark of success and our Social Committee should be proud of their efforts for not only this nights event but for all of the 100 Days of Summer program. Working in the kitchen to prepare and serve the tasty meal were Bill Mahar; Dave Siegel and Jay OHern; Peggy Konar; Donna James; Marguerite Fiorenza; Ida Mahar; and Genevieve Downs. Their efforts were supported by Marty Duesel; Ken McLeod; Dick Francis; Mick James; and Fred OHern Selling tickets for the 50/50 drawing was Monica Becotte while Holly Bragdon took the photos. Richard Becotte provided music when the band took their breaks so we all had constant entertainment. The entire evening was sponsored by Mario and Chris Zacco. Fred; Seth; and Greg of Cherrywood Property Management did the set up and tear down duties. Because of all the hard work from staff and volunteers Oktoberfest was a tremendous hit.Vets boat tripOn Tuesday the 17th, 20 people joined the Veterans Club for a singing river cruise in Dunnellon followed by lunch at the Blue Gator restaurant. Everyone seemed to enjoy their cruise narrated by Capt.Jon Semmes who gave excellent information about the ecology of the river and its tributaries; the wild life species that inhabit the area; and gave hints on what people can do to clean up the environment. Following the just under two-hour cruise, everyone met at the Blue Gator and ordered from the huge assortment of dishes listed on the menu. The food was excellent; the service was quick and friendly and aside from an abundance of love bugs; the outside dinning facilities were perfect.Friday, September 27, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, September 27, 2013 www.smcitizen.com in Orlando on Tuesday, Nov. 12 / Jo Swing 352-2374564 Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28 at the Ohana Luau Dinner Theater, Daytona Beach / Pat Hood 352-2378533 White Christmas at Show Palace Dinner Theater on Dec. 25, / Pat Hood 352-237-8533 Additionally, there is now a waiting list for the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes trip scheduled on Dec. 14 at the Straz Theater in Tampa.

Newcomers are welcome so if you would like to learn or if you havent played in a long while, feel free to join us. On Sundays at 8 in the evening Double Deck Pinochle is the game of the day.

Two players showed up a few minutes late and while I wont mention their names, their initials are D and E. Aside from having to put up with some good natured kidding, they survived and played well. Fred OHern was the quiz master and managed to stump most of us on some geographical questions among others. One of the questions was to locate the city of Damascus in Syria and while it was a challenge for nearly everyone in the group; Fred offered some consoling words. He stated that in a recent survey, 55 percent of the people working in the Pentagon couldnt locate it on a map. That was a rather scary comfort.

Two players showed up a few minutes late and while I wont mention their names, their initials are D and E. Aside from having to put up with some good natured kidding, they survived and played well. Fred OHern was the quiz master and managed to stump most of us on some geographical questions among others. One of the questions was to locate the city of Damascus in Syria and while it was a challenge for nearly everyone in the group; Fred offered some consoling words. He stated that in a recent survey, 55 percent of the people working in the Pentagon couldnt locate it on a map. That was a rather scary comfort. Trivia is a great way to socialize with friends and neighbors and also keep your mind alert. We encourage everyone to come out and spend a fun filled hour Ron and Joann Sanders. Wanda and Bill Huff.

Monday, Sept. 16, more than 200 residents showed up for Oktoberfest; the last in the series of this years 100 Days of Summer events. The German-themed program was a huge success with entertainment by Northern Sounds; food; fun and prizes and everything was free for our Cherrywood family. A delicious dinner of bratwurst and sauerkraut; potato salad; roll and ice cream were served up quickly and efficiently by our Social Committee volunteers. The serving line opened at 5:30 with Geri directing the various tables and by ten minutes to six; everyone had been served. Northern Sounds is a very talented group that played German drinking songs; polkas; novelty tunes and a wide variety of American popular songs. This band plays several different instruments and they really struck a chord with the guests. The audience was definitely in sync with their music as they danced the night away. The laughter and good times shared by all who attended was a true mark of success and our Social Committee should be proud of their efforts for not only this nights event but for all of the 100 Days of Summer program. Working in the kitchen to prepare and serve the tasty meal were Bill Mahar; Dave Siegel and Jay OHern; Peggy Konar; Donna James; Marguerite Fiorenza; Ida Mahar; and Genevieve Downs. Their efforts were supported by Marty Duesel; Ken McLeod; Dick Francis; Mick James; and Fred OHern Selling tickets for the 50/50 drawing was Monica Becotte while Holly Bragdon took the photos. Richard Becotte provided music when the band took their breaks so we all had constant entertainment. The entire evening was sponsored by Mario and Chris Zacco. Fred; Seth; and Greg of Cherrywood Property Management did the set up and tear down duties. Because of all the hard work from staff and volunteers Oktoberfest was a tremendous hit.Vets boat tripOn Tuesday the 17th, 20 people joined the Veterans Club for a singing river cruise in Dunnellon followed by lunch at the Blue Gator restaurant. Everyone seemed to enjoy their cruise narrated by Capt.Jon Semmes who gave excellent information about the ecology of the river and its tributaries; the wild life species that inhabit the area; and gave hints on what people can do to clean up the environment. Following the just under two-hour cruise, everyone met at the Blue Gator and ordered from the huge assortment of dishes listed on the menu. The food was excellent; the service was quick and friendly and aside from an abundance of love bugs; the outside dinning facilities were perfect.Friday, September 27, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, September 27, 2013 www.smcitizen.com in Orlando on Tuesday, Nov. 12 / Jo Swing 352-2374564 Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28 at the Ohana Luau Dinner Theater, Daytona Beach / Pat Hood 352-2378533 White Christmas at Show Palace Dinner Theater on Dec. 25, / Pat Hood 352-237-8533 Additionally, there is now a waiting list for the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes trip scheduled on Dec. 14 at the Straz Theater in Tampa.

These talented individuals are learning new songs and new techniques for their upcoming season of entertaining throughout Marion County. Our Songbirds sing at shopping malls during the Christmas Holiday season; at assisted living facilities and hospice locations along with many other venues. Where ever they go, they spread cheer and good will putting a smile on the faces of everyone in the audiences. You can make a difference in the lives of others and improve your own quality of life by joining in. Learn more about music than you ever knew a long with learning more about your own individual talents than you ever knew; all of this for just a couple of hours per week. The Songbirds are open to all and welcoming to all voices but they especially need men to fill in the bass parts so give it a couple of minutes of thought and then show up for practice on Wednesdays. Youll be glad you did.From your reporterEarlier this week, Marty Duesel, a fellow officer of the Veterans Club, and I met at the flag pole in front of the clubhouse. Neither of us planned this meeting; we just happened to be in the same place; at the same time; with the same intentions. Together we lowered the American flag to half staff. Yet again, our nation was in mourning as 12 people had been murdered by a gunman who penetrated the security system of a military base and killed them. Their crime was nothing more than reporting for work at the Navy Yard in Washington D.C. In addition to the victims, hundreds of peoples lives would be forever changed on that day. For the victims families, life will never be the same. Never again will they have their loved one sitting across from them at breakfast. Family reunions; Thanksgiving; birthdays; and all other special occasions will be observed but there will be one empty chair at the table and an empty space in their hearts. Those that were wounded will never be the same either. After convalescing, their lives will be forever changed as memories flood back each time they go to work; when they hear a loud noise; or when they pace the floor in the middle of the night unable to sleep. So often forgotten in these tragic situations are the first responders. Police who engaged the shooter and killed him; ambulance personnel and firefighters who fought to save the lives of the victims; they too will suffer. In their hearts they will question what they could have done differently; in their dreams they will hear the anguished cries and moans of pain. For the families of all of these victims we take time out to remember them; to pray for them and to thank them for what they do. We will never know their names like we know sports figures and entertainers or other so called idols but each of them must be told that they are our heroes. To all of you who wear a badge or the patch of EMT/Paramedic; to all who rush to our aid in times of horror and danger; we thank you and salute you.

Everyone expected the Stone Creek team to be the team to beat, but as it turned out, they just couldnt put their wins together and ended at the bottom of the pack. The Overholser Eye team, which led the league for quite a while, surprisingly fell apart during the last month and slowly began to head to the bottom of the league. The Stone Creek and Overholser Eye teams ended up sharing last place when the season was over. The Wise Way and Cebert Wealth teams, which, started out in the cellar, slowly started putting some key wins together. Cebert Wealth was the first to climb out of the cellar and during the last month of the season was close to taking over the top spot in the league from Overholser Eye, which were beginning to start their descent. Finally, with the last two weeks, Cebert Wealth took over the lead and began pulling away. The Wise Way team also began putting some key wins together and during the last two weeks of the season moved into second place, challenging the Cebert Wealth team for the lead. There were now four games to go and the Wise Way team was in striking distance, but couldnt maintain its winning streak and in the final two games, they lost a key game, allowing the Cebert Wealth team to become the league champions. It turned out to be a good season full of fun for all.Travel ToppersNow that the hot summer is almost over, it is time for you and the returning snow birds to think of the holidays.

Today is designated as Native American Day, although it is also celebrated on many different days. Our travel down Pun Alley takes us to some stories with several reservations.Another studyThe old Cherokee chief sat in his hut on the reservation, smoking the Ceremonial pipe, eyeing the U.S. government officials sent to interview him. Chief Two Eagles, one official began, You have observed the white man for 90 years. You have observed his wars and his material ways. You have seen everything he has done. The Chief nodded that it was so. The official continued, Considering all these events, in your opinion, did the white man go wrong? The Chief stared at the government officials for over a minute, and then calmly replied: When white man found the land, Indians were running it. No taxes. No debt. Plenty buffalo. Plenty beaver. Women did all the work. Medicine man free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing. The Chief leaned back and smiled, White man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that.The same in any languageA Seminole Indian came to Ocala to apply for a job at a horse farm. When asked what his wifes name is, he replied, Whumpo Semos Noja. The interviewer appeared confused, so the Indian explained, Thats her Indian name; it translates in English to Three-Old-Horses. More puzzled than before the interviewer asked, Yeah, but what does Three-Old-Horses mean? The Indian sighed and said, Nag, Nag, Nag.Todays Native AmericanA tourist walking through an Indian reservation stopped to speak to an Indian who was sitting in a chair smoking his pipe. White man, said the tourist, is heap glad to meet big Indian man. White man hope big chief feel tip-top this morning. Hey, Joe, called out the Indian, come over here and get a load of this guy. Hes great! Tales With Some ReservationsIt was claimed that the coming of the Iron Horse would bring great prosperity to the Indians, but they had reservations. This problem with illegal immigration is nothing new. The Indians had a special name for it. They called it white people. The Indians gave Chris a bill for docking his boat. Luckily, Columbus was carrying his Discover Card. Did you read about the New York nightclub just opened by Indians? They charge you twenty-four dollars for a Manhattan. A San Diego band of Indians are unable to have their own casino because of their small size. Instead, they are marketing a weight loss program that guarantees that youll lose a pound a day. This group is known as the diet tribe. A band of Indians once lived on a bumpy stretch of Florida land that was covered with little hills and thus it became known as the Semi-Knoll tribe.Hop to ItA tourist driving through Arizona saw a middleaged smiling squaw at a roadside stand. She was surrounded by sixteen happy children ranging in age from a toddler to a teenager. The tourist asked, Are those all your children? Oh, yes, replied the Indian while simultaneously trying to sell me blankets and other relics on her stand. With a huge family like that, dont you have lots of disagreements? Oh, no, she declared, Were just one great big Hopi family.No bull about itAn Indian walked into a cafe with a shotgun in one hand pulling a buffalo with the other. He said to the waiter, Want coffee. The waiter replied, Sure, Chief. Coming right up. He got the Indian a tall mug of coffee. The Indian drank the coffee in one gulp, turned and blasted the buffalo with the shotgun causing parts of the animal to splatter everywhere and then he just walked out. The next morning the Indian returned with his shotgun and another buffalo. He told the waiter, Want coffee. The waiter said, Whoa! Were still cleaning up your mess from yesterday. What was all that about, anyway? The Indian smiled and proudly said, Training for position in United States Congress. Come in, drink coffee, shoot the bull, leave mess for others to clean up, disappear for rest of day. Friday, September 27, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, September 27, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Am I getting old or his time passing faster than it used to? It seems I just settle down to do something and before I know it, it is over. Back in the day, a minute had 60 seconds. An hour had 60 minutes. A day had 24 hours. Oh, for those good old days. I am not exactly sure how many seconds a minute has or how many minutes an hour has because he goes by so fast I cannot keep track. Technology has taken over and I for one object. For example, I like looking at my wristwatch and seeing the second hand slowly tick around the dial. Now, we have cell phones with a digital clock. Unlike these digital clocks, all they tell me is what time it is right now. I like to look at a wristwatch and get a whole view of time: past, present and future. I know that a week does not have seven days anymore. I set out on Monday with high hopes of getting something accomplished during the week and by the time I clear my throat, it is Friday afternoon. Where did all that time go? Years ago, the Beatles had a song called Eight Days a Week. Nowadays it is more like three days a week: yesterday, today and tomorrow! Today is tomorrows yesterday and I am not exactly sure how to keep up anymore. By the time I get to tomorrow, I forgot what I was supposed to do today. Then, when I get to today, I cannot remember what I did yesterday. I used to plan a whole week of activity, now that luxury is yesterdays news, or is it tomorrows headlines? I like summer, which may explain why it goes so fast. Maybe I should take a chapter from Murphys Law and say I do not like summer, then it would drag by a without end in sight. Interestingly, the thing I like to do the most goes by so quickly, that which I hate doing drags on for centuries. Which has me thinking maybe I should not voice what I like or do not like? One thing I like about summer, when I can catch my breath and enjoy it, is the fact that it is made up of those lazy, hazy days I enjoy so much. Not having a schedule, not having a deadline, not having anybody telling me what I should or should not do. Ah, those crazy, lazy days of summer. The fact that I did not get much done during the summer is no big deal. If anybody asked me if I got anything accomplished, I just said, Hey, its summer. Relax. I will get to it eventually. Well, eventually has caught up with me and it is called winter. The difference between summer and winter is that during the summer, you can get away with doing nothing but in the winter, there is nothing you can get away with. During the summer my wife will ask me if I have done such and such and I respond by saying, Its summer, Ill get to it. I got plenty of time. During the winter, my wife will remind me of all the things I was supposed to do during the summer and that now I have to do because winter is a coming. Summer is hazy and lazy, while winter is Hurry up and get it done. More is expected from a person during the winter months that during the summer. I object very strenuously to this kind of attitude. Of course, this attitude comes from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She has the idea that winter, or at least the beginning of winter, is the time to clean everything. By everything, she is including the garage. Now that summer is over and the lawn does not need to be mowed anymore, I can, according to her logic, transpose that energy into cleaning up things. Then she will confront me with a favorite saying of hers, Cleanliness is next to godliness. One of these days, when I get up the courage, I am going to ask her to show me where that verse is in the Bible. I kind of think a person can be too clean, like squeaky clean. You know how squeaky gets on peoples nerves, especially mine. My favorite saying is, Laziness is next to everything. Perhaps that is why I like summer so much. There are shades of laziness that can only be exploited in the good old summertime. Some people, like the one who shares a residence with me, things that laziness is a very negative thing. This person honestly believes that if she is not doing something all the time she is lazy. Something good can be said about being lazy. You get to savor a moment of nonactivity. The thing I like so much about summer is the activity you do do is only the activity that you want to do like sitting on the back porch, drinking a glass of lemonade, which is what summer is all about. Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, understood this concept very well. He says, To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven, (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Time goes by so quickly that a person hardly has enough time to really appreciate the time that they have. How fast the shades of summer have faded Out to Pastor Rev.

And, WOW, wait til you see the amazing set for each scene in the show! The scenery for the farm, the woods, the plaza in Emerald City, the wizards chamber, the witchs castle and the haunted forest includes not only the walls but also set pieces for bushes, apple trees, boulders, the farm house, Professor Marvels wagon, and a hot air balloon, to mention a few. Dick Caza, our set designer and head of construction and painting, is to be congratulated and appreciated. He joined our theater group this spring, immediately took on this challenge, and boy, has he delivered! When you see the show and are impressed with the set, let Dick know. He and his construction and painting crew, who are all Performing Arts Company members, have put in many long (and hot) hours working on them, all because they love the theater. They volunteer their time and skills to make it happen. And speaking of the set, it has also set a new record for back stage. We usually have two stage hands with three or four cast members helping reset the stage for the next scene of the show, but for The Wizard of Oz we have six full time stage hands and eight cast members involved! Set/stage coordinator Patty Waddell, working with Stage Manager Maggie Naypaver, would like to thank stage hands Bob Kreider, Dee Gragg, Joyce Sylvia and Jerri Shorey for their commitment to being these unseen workers.

BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenLast weekends hostage-taking and the murder of at least 62 people at the Westgate Shopping Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, has its roots in the U.S. governments intervention in Somalia, which began in the 1990s. Although there is no justification for killing innocents, it is fair to point out that alShabaab, the Islamist group that committed the attack on the mall and that controls parts of Somalia, would probably not be in power if not for the United States. As Scott Horton, host of a nationwide radio program focusing on foreign policy, points out in the September issue of Future of Freedom (which I edit), the U.S. government has intervened directly in Somalia and backed repeated invasions by neighboring African states, including Kenya. In the process, a relatively moderate government was overthrown, resistance to invaders was radicalized, and the al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabaab gained partial control, which would have been unlikely without that intervention. Horton, drawing on firsthand reporting by journalist Jeremy Scahill, notes that after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the Bush administration compiled a list of countries ripe for regime change, including Somalia, none of which had any involvement whatsoever in the attacks or any real ties to those who did. Luckily for the Pentagon and CIA, it was not very difficult to find cutthroat warlords willing to accept their cash to carry out targeted assassinations and kidnappings against those they accused of being Islamists or anyone else they felt like targeting. A backlash followed. Somalias Islamic Courts Union, a coalition of a dozen groups, put down the warlords and the U.S.-sponsored Transitional Federal Government. The ICU then declared the reign of Islamic law, Horton writes. That, of course, was none of Americas business, and even if it had been, the Somali regime lacked the power to create an authoritarian religious state like, say, U.S. ally Saudi Arabia. And Somalias traditional Muslim beliefs were much more laid-back and tolerant than those in Arabia. This was unacceptable to the Bush administration, so in late 2006 it had Ethiopia, its Christian client state and an old Somalia antagonist, invade and overthrow the ICU, with CIA and specialoperations officers leading the attack. In 2008, however, Somalis kicked the Ethiopians out. Helping in the effort was, in Hortons words, the youngest and least influential group in the ICU, alShabaab (the youth). On its way out of power the Bush administration, seeking to save face, got the old men of the ICU to agree to accept the form of the Transitional Federal Government. This only inflamed al-Shabaab, which accused them of being American agents. It was only then years after the whole mess began that it declared loyalty to Osama bin Ladens al-Qaeda. It started acting like al-Qaeda too, implementing Arabian-style laws and punishments in the areas they dominated, such as cutting off the hands of those accused of stealing, Horton writes. Unfortunately, the Obama team has continued along the same disastrous path: After the Ethiopians withdrew, [the administration sent in the armies of Uganda and Burundi under the auspices of the African Union to hunt down and destroy al-Shabaab. Then came the Kenyans, who apparently panicked after luxury resorts near their border had come under attack. In 2011 the Ethiopians reinvaded. Kenyan forces took the port city of Kismayo from alShabaab in 2012 and loudly declared victory when the rebels melted away. But the stubborn insurgency continues the fight. The Americans, for their part, continue to back the invading forces, as well as what passes for the government in Mogadishu, with hundreds of tons of weapons and tens of millions of dollars. The CIA and the U.S. military still take a direct hand, not only by helping the nominal government, but also by attacking Somalis with helicopters, cruise missiles, and drones and, Horton writes, by overseeing at least two different torture dungeons. The horrendous attack in Nairobi has the news media abuzz over possible terrorist threats to soft targets such as shopping malls, not only in Africa but also in the United States itself. As we think about this, we should realize that this is a threat made in Washington, DC. How many times do we have to experience what the CIA calls blowback before the American people cry, Enough!Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va.

Friday, September 27, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 27, 2013 Synthetic marijuana being manufactured right here in view of the State Road 200 Corridor? Who knew? Well, obviously someone knew because Lt. Dennis Joiner, commander of the Southwest District of the Marion County Sheriffs Office, received a tip last week about the supposedly vacant store which once house a doughnut shop and, before that, a barbecue restaurant, people have said. Its located in a high traffic area along County Road 484, just a few blocks west of 200. Remember that column from a couple of weeks ago, when I said that the post office needed a map because they called this area Dunnellon? Well, that fact came into play last week. When you woke up and turned on the TV news, you saw reporters saying they were at a doughnut shop in Dunnellon. Im sure the folks in Dunnellon loved that, linking their city to this drug operation, when in reality it was 12 miles away. I stopped to take a picture of the sign and the shop that morning, and ran into the reporter for WESH-Channel 2 out of Orlando. I mentioned that people around here consider that area Ocala, and that State Road 200 was just a couple of blocks away, but she said she would stick with using Dunnellon. Hey, never let the facts stand in the way of a good story. She was following the line put out by the Sheriffs Office, which was using the mailing address. In the news release, though, the office gave the address with Dunnellon, but immediately added in parenthesis, just off State Road 200, giving perspective to the location. Anyhow, back to synthetic marijuana. I did a lot of reading to find out what it was and why it is illegal. After all, those electronic cigarettes arent subject to cigarette laws. Why is fake marijuana subject to pot laws? Turns out its the chemicals that are used to make the drug. The state has made those chemicals illegal, but every time they do, the manufacturers seem to change the chemicals. Still, its a drug that can get people high, and for that reason alone should be banned. And you know the manufacturers are in it for only one thing to get people hooked so they have to buy more and make the manufacturers rich. Well, four of them went to jail, including three on the scene and the person who had the lease, who was arrested later. Following these cases through the courts should be interesting. Two of them were from Tampa, the third from Texas, and no home address was available for the woman arrested later. Its obvious, though, that we are being infiltrated by out-of-town elements, and thats not good. Kudos to Lt. Joiner for following up on the tip he received. Lets all be alert to strange happenings and report them. Maybe we can cut into the drug trade, even if its only a little bit.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Many people who have moved to the western Marion County area have come from other parts of the U.S. that are very familiar with tornadoes. They know that when a tornado, or possibility of one, is approaching, the safest place is an interior room. Actually, the safest place is a bunker or a basement, but this is Florida and we dont normally see those down here. Tuesday evenings tornado warning accompanied a series of strong storms associated with a front that was passing through the area. It had rained most of the day, but suddenly things got severe. Western Marion County was one of the areas under a warning. The winds were strong enough to knock over the box in front of the Citizen office in Kingsland Plaza. One TV channel reported that in some areas, rain was falling at a rate of 5 inches per hour (thats the rate, not the actual rainfall). But unless you were watching locally-based television, or you have a weather radio, you probably didnt know anything about it. That brings up the question: Why dont we have tornado sirens? Florida averages 52 tornadoes a year, second most in the nation. Only Texas, with 137, has more. The tornadoes, however, are usually small, as the state only averages two deaths per year. Many other states have tornado sirens. They go off when a possible tornado is sighted in the area. They warn people to take shelter immediately. In the aftermath of some of the big storms, even recently in Oklahoma, you heard people say that they heard the sirens and got out of harms way. Some of us remember civil defense sirens in the 1950s, ready to be used as warnings of an attack during the cold war. Many communities had drills, and some may remember being taught to get under their desks in school, a move we now know was ridiculous in light of the damage a nuclear weapon can cause. This warning plan needs to be revisited, not because of a panic that a nuclear weapon was coming, but notice that a severe storm is ready to strike. As Floridas population grows with the influx of people from other parts of the nation, we realize that those people could grow complacent when they dont hear a warning. So a word of advice: When you see a storm approaching, turn to your weather or local station and find out whats going on. Its better to be informed, even if it doesnt pan out. There may be that one occasion when you wish you had known what was on the horizon. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

We wanted this annual event to be special, comments James Barnes, Breaking Outs Founder, Ocala Golf Clubs championship 18-hole course is as spectacular to play as is its beautiful surroundings. From the greens to the restaurant, its a special place. Ocala Golf Club has been tremendously supportive of our cause and mission, and we are eternally grateful. Each dollar raised will go to supporting operations that have a direct effect on the freedom and wellbeing of victims of human trafficking, states Kim Stinsman, vice president. Traffickers are able to commit these heinous crimes because people turn a blind eye to human trafficking. This is a fantastic opportunity for people to turn concern into action, and support their community.

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. 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.

College Road More on Page 7 AN INVIS IBLE THREAD B y L aura Schroff and Alex Tresniowski When her incredible friendship with Maurice began Laura Schroff was a 35-year-old advertising executive walking New Yorks streets on a Monday afternoon. An 11year-old African-American panhandler asks her for money because hes hungry. She blows him off, explaining to readers that in Manhattan theyre everywhere; you learn not to see them. But she doesnt get far before she stops and turns around. Still, she doesnt give him money. Instead, she buys him lunch at McDonalds where they both order the same mega-calorie mealBig Macs, fries, and thick chocolate shakes. Its the start of a decadeslong friendship. There would be 150 more Mondays during which Laura learns that the childs father is a gang member and his mother a heroin addict and that the only Christmas present he remembers is a joint his aunt gave him when he was 6. In time she would take this boy whos never left the city to her sisters beautiful home on Long Island. He will visit her posh apartment regularly after some awkward moments with other residents. When she offers to make his school lunches and leave them with the doorman, his response moves her to tears: If you make me lunch, he said, will you put it in a brown bag? I really didnt understand the question. Okay, sure. But why do you want it in a brown bag? Because when I see kids come to school with their lunch in a brown paper bag, that means someone cares about them. At times the narrative shifts from Maurice to Lauras own story. Her father was a brute to his family but beloved by all outside the home. He regularly beat his wife, humiliated his children, and destroyed furniture in alcoholic rages. Unlucky in love as well, she chalked up a bad marriage at an early age. Longing for a child she nevertheless determined that the men she dated didnt qualify as fathers. Maurice, then, became her child. The poignant message of this book is the power of committing to an individual. Schroff had no grandiose ideas about altering the course of homelessness. She just wanted to change the course of Maurices life. I believed then and I believe now that there is something in the universe that brings people who need each other together.

Every Monday Whit Brown comes from Orlando to call for our dances. Square dancing is a good way to make new friends and have fun. Its an activity that is easy to learn and is a good way to exercise without it seeming like its hard work. Its not just good exercise for your body, but for your mind too! Square dancing is recommended by the Mayo Clinic for its health benefits. Square dance has been generally recognized as the national folk dance of the United States. It is interesting to note that although its our national folk dance, it has migrated to almost every country on earth. If you journey to nonEnglish speaking countries you may not be able to talk to people there but you would be able to dance with them. Thats because all square dance calls are in English regardless of the native language. The club is having a class for beginning students starting on Oct. 7 at 12:45 p.m. The first lesson is free so you dont have anything to lose. This is your chance to have fun, get fit, and make new friends. The church is at 9330 S.W. 105th St. Look for the Ocala Twirlers sign at the rear of the church.

Friday, September 27, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4~ Friday, September 27, 2013 www.smcitizen.com 000G6OC Call John Casabianca for more information on this cruise and for the next sale date. We have to pay for tickets for shows at least 30 days prior to the trip. It can often be a real problem for us to add somebody to a trip after this cut-off date. Theaters many times cant give us additional tickets, or if they can, these tickets are for seats not near our group. Please try to understand and help us by purchasing your tickets as far in advance as possible. Ticket sales for most January-June, 2014, trips are this October. Another issue that often arises is not being able to place travelers with their friends at a dinner theatre table. Understandably, they are disappointed. The dinner theaters have tables set up for 2, 4 or 8 seats per table. When travelers insist on sitting at the table where they are the odd seat, such as 9 at a table for 8, it can create problems for the theater staff in moving about between tables. So, please recognize this and be willing to sit with some of your other Oak Run neighbors. You never know you might just make some additional close friends that way.

We dont hide our prices. All our prices are here and you WONT be asked or told you need to pay more! Hearing and Hearing Aid Pricing and Technology Disclosed 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.

Recently, the Ocala West Methodist Church was a busy place with area Boy Scout youth and adult leaders having activities. The Youth had a car wash and breakfast serving while the adults not supervising had training sessions. Troops from all around went to the adult leader training while the youth did their activities. Many thanks are due to the church for hosting the activities. The car wash was a fund raiser for the youth going to Philmont Scout ranch in New Mexico next summer. There was a donation jar available as there was no fixed price for the carwash. Approximately $200 was raised for the trip. Other ways for earning the money will be selling popcorn around the area and Camp cards will be sold after the new year starts. Please help our future leaders with their fundraisers and or helping as a adult leader. For more information about helping, call Jim or Stephanie Salmon at 352-843-0093.
