Highway 326 when they observed a disturbance in the parking lot. Contact was made with the subjects at which time officers smelled marijuana coming from their vehicle. A Sheriff's K-9 unit arrived and the K-9 alerted on the vehicle for containing drugs. A search revealed 382 grams of synthetic marijuana packaged for distribution, bundles of plastic bags, three scales, and a marijuana pipe. William Griffin, 38, was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail and Ryan Young was issued a Notice to Appear for possession of drug paraphernalia. Griffins address was listed as 5171 S.W. 183rd Terrace, Dunnellon. He was accused of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bond on the marijuana charges was $5,500, but the violation of probaton charges for burglary, grand theft and evidence tampering caused him to be held without bond.

In a unanimous vote during their Sept. 26 public hearing, Marion County commissioners adopted the countywide budget and a millage rate of 3.90 mills for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. A millage rate of 3.90 equates to $3.90 for each $1,000 of taxable property value, or $261 for a home assessed at the average taxable value of $67,000. The adopted millage rate is 0.01, or one one-hundredth of a mill, higher than the fiscal year 2012-2013 millage rate of 3.89. This is due to a required increase in a debt service levy used to pay bonded debt issued for the purchase of parks and environmentally-sensitive land through the voter-approved 1988 Pennies for Parks referendum. All other non-countywide millage rates will remain at their current levels for fiscal year 2013-14, with the exception of the MSTU for law enforcement. With no further reserves available to offset the continued decline in taxable property value, the board approved a 0.40 mill County commissioners adopt new budget PLEASESEEBUDGET, PAGE3 Driving and texting now against lawThe Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and AAA are partnering to reduce distracted driving on Floridas roadways by educating the public about the new Florida law banning texting while driving. Beginning Oct. 1, the Florida ban on Texting While Driving Law went into effect, which will help promote safe driving and address critical issues related to distracted driving in the state of Florida. The provisions of the law state that a person may not operate a motor vehicle in motion while manually typing into a wireless communications device known as texting, emailing and instant messaging (non-voice). AAA applauds Florida for taking steps to save lives, said Amy Stracke, managing director, AAA Traffic Safety Advocacy, The Auto Club Group. Too many needless deaths are occurring because of vehicle crashes caused by distracted driving.

Few people know what the Gold Star Mothers are but they have a long history of sacrifice and service. No one truly wants to join this proud organization because to qualify for membership you must be the natural mother of a man or woman who has lost their life in the service of our country. Since Gold Star Mothers began just after the First World War; unfortunately there has been no shortage of new members. Striving to serve other veterans; to gain strength through mutual support and to show their patriotic pride; the Gold Star Mothers work tirelessly to benefit veterans and their families. On Sunday our service flags were proudly displayed in front of the clubhouse in honor of these special ladies and in tribute to their special day. Only those who have suffered such a loss can know their depth of sorrow and pain but we who have survived can extend our sympathy; express our gratitude and vow never to forget their sacrifice. We, the members of the Cherrywood Veterans Club gladly promise to do just that in honor of these wonderful Moms. We urge all Americans to join us.

increase in the millage rate for that MSTU with a 3-2 vote (commissioners Carl Zalak III and Stan McClain dissenting). This enables the Marion County Sheriffs Office patrol and criminal investigation division to remain funded for fiscal year 2013-14 at the same level as in fiscal year 2012-13. The adopted millage rate of 3.21 for the MSTU for law enforcement equates to $3.21 for each $1,000 of taxable property value, or $215 for a home assessed at the average taxable value of $67,000. The MSTU is applied to properties in the unincorporated areas of the county that receive sheriff patrol services. During the last six years, Marion County has experienced a 38 percent decline in the countywide taxable property value, a decrease of approximately $8.5 billion. Budget reductions from Marion Countys departments and constitutional offices over those years have resulted in a property tax savings of $29.4 million for fiscal year 2013-14 compared to fiscal year 2007-08.Friday, October 4, 2013 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, October 4, 2013 www.smcitizen.com BUDGETCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 To help educate motorists, events are planned and information is being shared across the state during the month of October. This includes participation at high school assemblies, radio public service announcements, collaboration with local law enforcement agencies, and a variety of print messaging and electronic notices along Florida highways and turnpikes. Organizations interested in helping promote the new law can visit their local AAA office for information. Sending or receiving a text takes a drivers eyes from the road for an average of 4.6 seconds, the equivalent of driving, at 55 mph, the length of an entire football field, blind. With more than 6 billion text messages sent each day in the United States, it is important to remind drivers to Put It Down. FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad said, Distracted driving is a serious danger on our roadways. Were reminding drivers to be responsible and not text while driving. Safety Tips: Put the cell phone away or silence it while driving so you are not tempted to respond while in motion. Designate a non-driving texter. to respond for you. The Put It Down campaign is part of a comprehensive approach that includes law enforcement and education.

HealthBenefits DidYouKnow?Florida tomatoes are a good source of lycopene (helps prevent skin damage from UV rays), vitamin C (needed for growth and repair of body tissues) and vitamin A (helps vision and bone growth). Did You Know? Botanically, the tomato is a fruit. However, they are legally con sidered a vege table after a ruling in the U.S. Supreme Court. How to Buy The best test for a great tomato is aroma. Smell the stem end for a strong sweet-acidic fragrance. Choose tomatoes that are plump, shiny and give slight pressure when applied. How to Store Tomatoes should be stored at a cool room temperature, out of their packaging and never in the refrigerator. Storing tomatoes in the refrigerator diminishes their flavor. 1 large fresh Florida tomato, crushed 1 cup tomato sauce 1 tablespoon minced garlic 2 teaspoons dried parsley 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves, chopped (save 4 to 6 for garnish) 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper 1 pound spaghetti 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese 8296 SW 103rd St. Rd. 352-237-3676 Monday Friday 9-5, Saturday 9-4 Walk-Ins Welcome Millennium Hair Salon A Certified Goldwell Color Salon 000G9DG $ 14 00 $ 14 00 Must present coupon.

Friday, October 4, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, October 4, 2013 www.smcitizen.com FORDLANDIA By Greg Grandin Fordlandia, Greg Grandins cautionary tale of pride that goeth before the fall, describes in riveting detail Henry Fords attempt to build a Midwestern town and rubber plantation in the heart of the Amazon junglea disaster primed to happen. Did Ford long for a new frontier or was the rubber he needed for his burgeoning automobile business the one resource beyond his control? In the late twenties he was persuaded to buy an Amazon tract the size of Connecticut, land Brazil would have given him had he been hands on about the project. Instead, he trusted self-interested managers to negotiate terms. Fords personality sometimes got in the way; he could make bad decisions if convinced the idea was his own. Lying along the banks of the Tapajos River, the settlement offered American managers and native laborers modern amenities like indoor plumbing, screened windows, hospitals, schools, swimming pools and even a golf course. What it didnt deliver was rubber. The rubber trees he tried to plant succumbed to leaf blight, insects, and other scourges. His Michigan-raised overseers collapsed from disease and heat prostration. Many of their children died. There were riots. Some returned to America but a surprising number remained despite the overwhelming obstacles. But the Amazon story was more than an industrial empire gone awry even with millions of dollars pouring into the region. Ford tried to use the blank canvas of the jungle for human engineering by imposing on the natives wholesome living and old-fashioned values. It backfired. Their Cape Cod bungalows trapped heat; the cafeteria-style meals disgusted them. They either fled into the jungle or rebelled. And everyone kept askingwhen will Ford come here? He never did. In the end, the failed 20 million dollar venture was sold to Brazil for $244,000. Between chapters on Fordlandia Grandin reveals Ford the mana genius, a visionary but also a despicable anti-Semite and verbal abuser of his only son Edsel, a talented, refined man who died at 49. After his sons death Henry Ford tried to explain the humiliation hed heaped on Edsel throughout his life. He was only, he said, trying to show the world that his very rich child was not pampered. Although not fast paced, this book is an engrossing read.

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.

Friday, October 4, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 4, 2013 BY BRYAN GOLDEN Dare to Live Without LimitsThe American Dream is freedom. Freedom from oppression, tyranny, and subjugation. Freedom from dictatorial individuals and government. Freedom to control your destiny. Freedom to benefit from your hard work and creativity. Freedom to succeed or fail. Freedom to determine your level of prosperity. The American Dream was established on the principle that, for the first time in human history, a country was established with a government designed to be a servant of the people. The American Dream is one of self-sufficiency, not government dependence and control. The American Dream cultivates the limitless power of the individual to build, create, discover, invent, and innovate. The American Dream is the pioneer spirit that motivates people to succeed against all odds in order to do what has never been done before. Prior to Americas founding, countries around the world had been so oppressed by totalitarian regimes that individual freedom was an unknown concept. Ones position in life was determined by those in power. There was no hope of a better existence. An individual had no control over his destiny no matter how hard he worked. The position someone was born into was where they remained for life. The American Dream recognized the equality of each person as being an inalienable right. It didnt matter who you were or where you started, you could go anywhere. The American Dream is simple. It puts the destiny of every individual into their own hands. Each person is free to benefit directly from their efforts. The American Dream taps into the essence of human nature; when people have the freedom to determine their own destiny, productivity flourishes. The American Dream unleashed the power of the individual as never before. In less than 200 years from our founding, America had surpassed all other nations in wealth, production, and innovation. Americans have created and maintained the highest standard of living ever known. The American Dream attracts people from every other country because of its unparalleled liberty. The American Dream is one of equal opportunity, not equal outcomes. The regimes people escaped from all proved that the only outcome that can be guaranteed is the equal distribution of misery. Every American benefits from The American Dream. Success has a positive impact on all. It creates a vibrant, growing society filled with opportunity. People are willing to work hard when they are free to benefit from their efforts and able to retain the fruits of their labor. Nothing is better than The American Dream where each individual has the right and freedom to determine their own life. What is the alternative? Is it being told what you can and cannot do? Is it having some person or government deciding what is fair for you to have? There are those who dont like The American Dream. The reasons are many: greed, power, control, or the destruction of our country. Regardless of their motives, the result if they are successful is the same; the loss of freedom and the inability to control your life and destiny. Although its difficult to believe that anyone could be opposed to liberty, both history and current events clearly demonstrate that those who want to destroy The American Dream exist and are determined to subvert your freedom. The ever present threat to The American Dream is people who believe the government should control you, dictate how you live, and determine what is permitted. These power hungry authoritarians seek to enrich themselves by creating laws designed to confiscate the results of your hard work. The American Dream attracts vermin who view government as an opportunity to enrich themselves by confiscating wealth from others. The success of the productive attracts economic parasites. The American Dream requires your constant care, vigilance, and support to keep it alive. Freedom is your right, but it isnt free. Take it for granted, and it will vanish. No one has the right to steal your American Dream. Stand up for liberty and reject anyone who wants to take it from you. You are The American Dream. When I was a kid, and I wanted to make a telephone call, I would pick up the receiver and immediately hear a voice say, Number please. She (it was always a she) took the number and made the call for you. Then eventually we progressed to a phone with a circular dial on it, and you could dial the number directly without speaking to anyone. I do know that New Jersey, where I lived, was the first location to be assigned an area code. Area codes, and subsequently dialing 1, virtually eliminated the operator. But you could still call an operator by dialing 0 or, eventually, pushing the 0 button on what we called push-button phones. Last week, I was trying to call a business phone that started with a toll-free area code of 888. I kept getting two results: Either it would ring forever, or it would ring once and I would get that awful tone and a message that All circuits are busy. To me, this made no sense. Finally, I reverted to my old days and pushed 0 to get an operator. I then got a lesson on how things had changed. I immediately got a recorded voice telling me to press 1 to make a call or some other thing, or press 2 for the business office and things like that. So I pressed 1. Then I got one of my least favorite messages, press 1 for English, and a voice speaking in Spanish where I picked up the words espanol and dos, which from my old high school classes I knew meant Spanish and two. So I pressed 1 and then got another message to press 1 for this and that, and press 2 for something else, etc. I cant remember what I pressed, but I got another menu. At some point I had a choice to troubleshoot my problem automatically, but I bypassed that and eventually was told to push 0. When a woman answered, I have to admit I was a little perturbed and said, Are you human? She said she was, so I told her my original problem. She immediately said, Oh, I have to give you another number to call. And so it started all over again. Finally, I got a human, and she said she would try the number for me. She couldnt get through, either, so I asked her if she would check the line. She said no, she couldnt do that, and I should call repair and tell them the problem. Remember, all this started because I simply pushed 0 and wanted to talk to an operator. At that point, I just gave up, and by the next morning the problem resolved itself. This, though, is an example of how automated our lives have become. The personal touch is long gone, especially at major firms like the phone company. In an old movie, The Bells of St. Marys, Bing Crosby played a priest named Father OMalley. He used to tell people jokingly when they were in trouble to dial 0 for OMalley. If they dialed 0 today, it would be a miracle if they got Father OMalley. Its almost a miracle when they get to talk to an operator.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

The secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection has an opportunity to risk political suicide but prove that logic is not lost in the management of water resources. While the secretary wasnt present when challenges to the states minimum flows law for the Chassahowitzka and Homosassa rivers were presented recently, its his job to rule if the law should be superseded by the rivers status as Outstanding Florida Waters (OFWs). In pondering the situation, Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. should draw heavily on common sense and political perspective. State policy to review flows in rivers throughout the state was initially viewed apparently naively as a means to gauge the status of the rivers health. As it turns out, that data has been contorted into a mechanism for condoning reduced flows. While water district officials responsible for setting the minimum flows and levels (MFLs) bristle at the reality, flow reduction equates to increased pollution. Much political spin has been offered in an attempt to separate MFLs from OFW status but they are both law and blatantly contradict each other. Reduced flow allows for greater concentrations of polluting nitrates and exacerbates saltwater intrusion. History has made that evident. The petitioners at the Sept. 10 hearing before the DEP representative were in no way a bunch of yahoos bellyaching about some far-fetched conspiracy. An attorney articulated the contentions of three environmental groups and three individuals that reduced flows are contrary to OFW status. Dr. Bob Knight of the Florida Springs Institute supported their claim with scientific data. While the legal and scientific representatives from the water district were earnest in saying the approved reduction of MFLs are consistent with their dictates, theyre seeking cover by detaching reduced flows from increased pollution. The districts position is that the rules are consistent with the Water Resource Implementation Rule and they do not negatively impact any water resource values and are consistent with all relevant water quality standards, the water district attorney stated. Thats fine, if one dismisses the degradation reaped to date by nitrateand saltwater-induced degradation on the Homosassa and Chassahowitzka. Its a simple question: How will allowing reduced flow aka increased withdrawals benefit the water quality of the rivers? That is the question the DEP secretary must evaluate. While theres been much publicity and praise for the governors $37 million springs restoration initiative, state agencies be it the DEP or water districts are cogs in the political machine. With Gov. Rick Scott driving that machine, they are tasked with carrying out the agenda of a leader who, springs initiative aside, has hardly been viewed as the environmental governor. No doubt, balancing the states economic interests with environmental concerns is no easy task, and allowing increased water withdrawals hence reduced flow has major economic overtones. All of that aside, the matter before the DEP secretary is simple: Does Outstanding Florida Water status override the condoned reduction of water flow? These are not issues that can be separated.

Friday, October 4, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, October 4, 2013 www.smcitizen.com AndersonvilleAndersonville POW camp was a tragedy that didnt have to happen. The South had nothing to give their troops, much less these prisoners. There had been a prisoner exchange program and then the North cancelled it. Remarkably, Union officials, including President Lincoln and Secretary of War Stanton, refused personal appeals from five paroled Union prisoners from Andersonville in July 1864 to restart the exchange. The men had presented a petition signed by most of the prisoners asking for help. It amazes me that you never hear anything about what happened in the Union prisons. The North had plenty of supplies like blankets, clothing, shoes, medical, etc., but refused to give these to the CSA prisoners as a form of punishment. I suggest that the readers look up the following Union prison camps: Alton, Indiana; Camp Chase, Ohio; Camp Douglas, Chicago, Illinois; Hart Island, New York; Fort Lafayette, New York; Camp Morton, Indiana; Rock Island Barracks, Illinois, Camp Butler, Illinois, Fort Delaware; Elmira Prison, New York; Johnson Island, Ohio; Fort McHenry, Baltimore, Maryland; Point Lookout, Maryland; Fort Warren Boston Harbor, Massachusetts. It would be my guess that most people never heard of these places. Trueman G. Griffin Palm CayWho Congress works forDuring this period of time when everyone in the United States is doing their part in working through these budget cuts that sequestration has brought to America some are ignoring its problems. Our military may be hurt the most with these drastic budget cuts at a time when we are still fighting a major conflict in Afghanistan where Americans are dying each and every day. Every program that has been set aside to help our federal, state and local governments that provide for our people have been cut to the bone. We are eliminating programs that have been on the books for years that provide work for millions of Americans. Instead of building our roads and bridges putting our people to work we are shrinking our economy. Our workers are earning less money and paying less in taxes which reduce the funds that we need to keep our country running. Regardless of what you have lost, what you have given up there is one group of people who are able to continue their lavish lifestyle. They feel that they are above the law of the little people because they made these laws that we all have to live by. I am talking about the Congress of the United States of America. They are a selfish group of individuals who have no skin in the game, no accountability for their actions because they only answer to their largest campaign contributors. What can we as voters do about these people who do not have to sacrifice the way that we do to survive and try to support our families. Could we elect a new Congress in 2014 that believes in representing whats best for all Americans? Jerry Segovis Ocala230 stood up for AmericaThey voted to defund the Great American Tragedy, Affordable Health Care, the biggest con job in recent history. Somehow liberals believe we can add millions to the insured roles, many with pre-existing illnesses, add government bureaucrats, including more IRS agents, and maintain our quality health care at a reduced cost. Please go back to school and study Economics 101 at the very least, and it would help if you had some knowledge of our Constitution. The cost of this program will skyrocket and medical care will deteriorate as big government makes our medical decisions for us. Talk to your doctor and also question why our president and Congress dont have to be covered under it, just like ordinary citizens have to be. Doesnt that raise a red flag for you? I cant believe so many believe Florida should take the free money being offered to us by the Fed. What planet do they live on to believe that if it comes from the Fed, we should take it with a big thank you? Where do you think the money comes from? All grants also come with strings attached and thankfully, our leaders want no part of it. What part of we have no money for more programs is so hard to understand? If we dont cut back on our debt, we are going bankrupt, then what? If you truly believe that everyone is entitled to health care, nothing would stop you from adopting a family and paying for their coverage. I dont think you have the right to demand others to pay for their coverage, but it would be very charitable for you to do so.

Southwest Christian Church will celebrate our 12th anniversary with a special worship service and a carry-in dinner after worship. The Public is invited. SWCC was officially founded on Sunday, Oct. 7, 2001 with 29 charter members. Our first meeting place was the Saddlewood Elementary School. Our first ministry team was Gordon Nelson and his wife Estelle, both of whom had previously served as missionaries in Africa for over 30 years. In 2003 the church moved to the Hospice Center on Southwest 34th Avenue. While meeting at Hospice, the church began to search for land on the southwest side of Ocala on which to build our church building and was sucessful in finding 10 acres, our current location, at 9045 S.W. 60th Ave. In early 2003 we were blessed to be able to pay off the land purchase and acquire financing for our new building and begin construction in 2003. Then on Easter Sunday in 2005, we met for the first time in our new building with over 350 worshipers attending and officially dedicated our new church building.

Today is World Smile Day. Celebrated on the first Friday in October every year, it was originated by Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts. In 1963 he created the smiley face, an image that has been used around the world ever since. Harvey Balls idea for the holiday is that all of us should devote one day each year to smiles and kind acts. Todays Pun Alley wants to bring some smiles to your face and burst those smiles into some laughs.Real chicksFarmer John originally lived on a rural highway. But now traffic was so heavy and fast that his freerange chickens were being run over at a rate of three to six a day. He called the sheriff and complained. County workers erected a sign that said, Slow School Crossing. This didnt help so the county workers put up a new sign, Slow Children At Play. Farmer Johns chickens were still being run over so after continuous complaining to the sheriff he finally asked, Your signs are doing no good. Can I put up my own sign? The sheriff told him, Sure thing, put up your own sign. After that there were no more complaints from Farmer John. The sheriff, being curious, drove out to Farmer Johns house, and his jaw dropped when he saw the sign. It was spray painted on a sheet of plywood, Nudist Colony Go slow and watch for chicks.Courtroom Bible testIn the court the judge was asking a child some questions to determine her reliability as a witness. Do you know anything that is in the Bible? I know everything. What? the judge exclaimed in astonishment. Tell us some of the things that are in there. Well, she said, theres a picture of sisters boy friend, mothers recipe for meatloaf, a curl of mine and the pawn ticket for daddys watch. Hows that?The maharaja of an Indian province decreed a ban on hunting wildlife, and soon the country was overrun with man-eating animals. When the people could stand it no longer, they gave the maharaja the heave ho. This may be the first time in history when the reign was called on account of game. SmilesI was always taught to respect my elders, but it keeps getting harder to find one. An anecdote is a tale, said the teacher. Now, Sidney, use it in a sentence. I tied a tin can to the dogs anecdote. I had amnesia once or twice Another name for stable thinking is horse sense. If youre traveling in Scandinavia and you come to the last Lapp, you must be near the Finnish line. I told my friend that she drew her eyebrows too high. She looked surprised. Is it me or do buffalo wings taste like chicken? A dinosaur with an extensive vocabulary is known as a thesaurus.First in LineBettys mother, who is known for always adhering to the speed limit, took her granddaughter with her to visit a friend. When Bettys daughter got home, she was excited about the trip. She explained the ride home, There was a whole line of cars and we were first.SpeechlessHenry and Molly were in divorce court after many years of marriage. The judge asked, Henry, is it true that through the last three years of your marriage, you did not speak to Molly? Yes, your honor, that is correct. And how do you explain this unusual conduct? Harry replied, I didnt want to interrupt her, Your Honor.JumpyGlenn and Scott, were bungee-jumping one day when Glenn had a brainstorm, You know, we could make a lot of money running our own bungee-jumping service in Mexico. Scott agreed, so they bought everything needed a tower, an elastic cord, insurance, etc. In Mexico as they were setting up in a vacant lot, a crowd gathered. When everything was ready Glenn give it a test jump. When he bounced at the end of the cord and came back up, Scott noticed that Glenn had a few cuts and scratches. Unfortunately, Scott wasnt able catch him, so Glenn fell again, bounced, and then came back up. This time, Glenn was bruised and bleeding. Scott caught him and pulled him in. What happened? he asked. Was the cord too long? Glenn replied, No, the cord was fine, but tell me, what is a piata? Friday, October 4, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, October 4, 2013 www.smcitizen.com our individual responsibility to take care of our own familys needs: food, shelter, clothing, medical care, etc ? Isnt that one reason we have charitable organizations, including churches, to help those who cant help themselves, the truly needy. If we no longer believe in personal responsibility, we have become a Socialist America, just as our enemy predicted years ago. Please understand that a government that gives you everything can turn around and take it from you, that is not what America is and I pray it never will be. God bless America! Wayne Rackley OcalaPerspective on good and evil?Do you believe in good, and evil, or just, good, or just evil? We are once more thrust into a battle between, good, and evil, and many are not able to discern which is which. If you are envious, greedy, dim witted, depraved everything looks good to you. Even Hitler, Mao, Castro, Stalin, Mussollini, Pol Pot, and their ilk look good to you. If you are industrious, productive, mentally competent you probably see good, as good, and evil, as evil. The Mantra of the day is redistribution: Advocated by the new cadre of exploiters who wish to supplant the existing cadre of exploiters. Do we need, or want to exchange exploiters, or do we want to truly be free of exploitation. Free to make the most of our God given talents? Our Founding fathers said all men are created equal. What they should have said is: No man has the right to exploit, demean, or abuse another man. Not in politics, or religion. Period. Ordinary citizens are being exploited by both sets of power lusters in this equation. We need to fix what is wrong, not throw out the good that we have with the bad. The bad are the laws enacted by our legislators at the behest of special interest business groups, laws that favor those groups over ordinary citizens. Our elected officials have not been good stewards. We need to undo the damage, not bring in a new group of exploiters, and control freaks with even worse plans and ideas. Do humans feel good about themselves when they can accomplish something on their own? I think so. We should all have that opportunity. Do you agree? Freedom to do our best on a level playing field.

Friday, October 4, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING 22~ Friday, October 4, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Iawoke last Tuesday with a strange feeling I had missed something. Not only that, but I was shivering like a polar bear without his pajamas. I knew something was wrong but to put my finger on it was just too early in the morning for me. I like starting my days slowly. At my age just getting up is quite an accomplishment. I felt my forehead to see if I had a fever. I found my forehead easily enough, just above my eyes, but I can never tell if I am hot, cold or lukewarm. The condition progressed to such a degree I had to swallow my pride and inquiry of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She can look at me and tell me if I am sick or not. Usually, Im sick. So I approached her and said, Am I sick or what? Quick as a wink she said, Off the top of my head I would say you are or what. And this was just the beginning of my day. Then my wife looked at me and said, Why do you ask? So I explained to her about the feeling I had that something was missing and on top of that, I could not stop shivering. She felt my forehead to see if I had a fever, and I did not. When she turned her back on me, I was tempted to stick out my tongue and say AHH. Well, she said, youre not sick and I dont understand how you could be cold. I looked aimlessly out the window and began to shiver more. It looks like its cold out there, I complained. My wife looked at me with one of those looks that every husband knows and fears, and said, It should be cold outside, its winter, for Petes sake. Winter? What happened to summer? Oh you silly boy, my wife chuckled, summers over and winters brewing. I just stared out the window at the bleakness of the morning, wondering where in the world summer went. At the moment, it did not seem possible to me that summer was over. Is not that the way things go? Just as soon as you get used to something, it is over. I suppose it is because a person becomes so busy doing the mundane daily things he fails to consider the whole picture. If you do not enjoy what you are doing right now, one day you will look back and wonder where in the world it disappeared. At my age, it seems that looking back has become quite a career. I remember when I was young the old folks used to say, I remember the good old days. Ive often wondered what they were talking about. Now I know. When I was young, my whole life was looking forward, but now that I am old, I spend part of my time looking at the rearview mirror. That is the wonderful advantage of getting older. When you are young, you do not have anything to look back to. The older you get the more you have to look back on. I have a few things I reflect on. One is the memories I have made throughout the years. Often when my wife and I are sitting together one of us will say, Do you remember when...? Then one of us will recite a wonderful memory from the past and have a good laugh together. Maybe this is why older people laugh so much. I know it is why I laugh a lot. One of the wonderful things about a persons memory is that it is personal. I will not say that I enhance my memories, of course I do, but I will not confess to it. If it is my memory I should be able to recite it any which way I please. I particularly enjoy those memories that I share with no one else. Because then, I have the freedom to remember it any which way I please. I once listened to a very old woman share memories of her childhood. At the time, she was in her early 90s. As I drove away from listening to her I thought to myself, I wonder how much of those memories were really true. Then again, they were her memories not mine. Who am I to judge? Also in looking back, there are those things we refer to as regrets. I suppose everybody tries to live in such a way to keep regrets to a minimum. I have a long list of things I regret doing or saying or not doing or not saying. The one category of regrets I have are those things that I have done that my wife knows about. Talk about memory? This brings up the difference between a husband and a wife. A husband cannot remember anything and his wife cannot forget anything. But between the two, they lick the platter clean. The apostle Paul practiced the fine art of forgetting. He wrote, Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14 KJV). My rearview mirror is full and the temptation is to focus solely on them missing the scenery in front of me.Rev. James L.

If you ask any school child how Columbus got to America, they will tell you in a ship, of course. I will ask the question: Who financed the ship (s) and the whole expedition? Here is where history gets very interesting if not a bit ironic. When Christopher Columbus approaches the two Spanish monarchs of historical fame, Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand of Aragon, the royals were not receptive to the proposals of Columbus. Sailing west to reach India and therefore securing an important trade route for spices for the Spanish monarchs was a risky venture and there were no guarantees. The expedition would be very costly and would reduce the royal coffers considerably. While this was being debated, the Inquisition was in full force in Spain. Jews were forcibly being made to convert to Christianity or risk death. Jews that did convert were watched very carefully for any signs of Judaizing and those suspected of such were turned over to the Inquisition for torture and questioning. If convicted these unfortunates faced death by burning at the stake. These Jews that converted were called Conversos or anusim (hidden ones) because publically they were Christians but in secret they remained faithful to their Jewish heritage. Numerous Jews, notably Don Isaac Abrananvel, supported financially Columbus idea of an expedition but it was two Conversos, Luis de Santangel, the finance minister of Aragon, and Raphael Sanchez, treasurer, who played critical roles in securing the monarchs support for Columbus venture. History tells us that it was Luis de Santangel who finally convinced Isabella and Ferdinand of the importance of Columbus trip. Ironically he is credited with telling them that by finding a new route to India would enable them to help spread Christianity. Even while he was presenting his argument to Isabella and Ferdinand, it has been speculated that he was really hoping that Columbus would find a safe haven for the Jews of Spain who were in peril for their lives. As history would play out, with the financial backing of the Jews, the monarchs signed the papers authorizing Columbus trip on the same day as the paper for the expulsion for the Jews from Spain was signed. While one door closed for the Jews, another was about to open with the discovery of the New World. And in further irony, the first person to step on the soil of the New World was a Converso, Luis de Torres. He was chosen for the expedition as an interpreter for the Indians. It was believed that the Native Americans were descendants of the Lost Tribes of Israel who had immigrated to the New World. Since de Torres could speak Hebrew due to his Jewish heritage, it was believed he would be able to communicate with the native peoples. The Native Americans were indeed members of the tribe, just not the Jewish ones. As history was to play out, Jewish settlers and their financial backing were to play an important part in the American Experience, during the War for Independence as well as the Civil War. Their contributions to America were to help shape the moral, financial and cultural fiber of their adopted country and Columbus discovery indeed became a haven for Jews.

She just joined Performing Arts Company of Oak Run in May, and at her first meeting she volunteered to be the director. She has been immersed in this show ever since, so unless youre involved with the show, you probably dont know her. It is time to introduce her. Janice was grew up in the small town of Tiffin in northwest Ohio. When she was 2 years old, her mother entered her in a contest where she won a Hollywood screen test. She has it framed and hanging on the wall in her home. She was active in theatre throughout high school, and in 1987 she auditioned at the Ritz Theatre in downtown Tiffin for the first time (on a dare). She got a small speaking role in I Remember Mama, and has been hooked ever since. She considers the Ritz Theatre her second home. From 1987 2006, she was involved there with over 50 plays, doing anything and everything including acting, props, set, stage manager, make-up and directing. For several years, she worked with the Missoula Childrens Theater, mentoring and teaching children at two-week theater camps. She was President of the Ritz Players for several years and was awarded Volunteer of the Year in 2003. Janice moved to Ocala in 2006, and then into Oak Run in April of 2013. She feels that PACOR is exactly what she needed to be truly happy in Florida!

The questions this month are on the subject of Halloween (naturally) and famous American sayings. Yours truly made up the questions and I hope it will make for an interesting and amusing contest. It only costs one dollar to play Trivia and you can bring a three or four person team or you can come alone and join another team thats short handed. Either way you will be warmly welcomed because we all know that misery loves company. Seriously, this is a fun way to test your knowledge; keep your brain working and enjoy the company of friends. It truly is a light hearted competition. All proceeds from the game go to the Wounded Warrior Fund and so far we have donated more than $350 to that organization.

This exciting competition is one of the highlights of our calendar year and is always a blast to attend either as a competitor or a fan. Teams of four compete in four separate events. This year those events will include; shuffleboard; horseshoes; Bocce ball and would you believe, Wellie Wanging. No, I didnt misspell Wellie Wanging and frankly, I was just as confused as you are when I first heard of it. Wellie Wanging is really a sport. You take a green garden boot; wind up in what ever way you wish and then fling it as far as you can. I can only assume this game began when a bunch of frustrated gardeners got off work and once they removed their muddy boots, expressed their discontent by throwing them as far away as possible. Entry fee for contestants is just $2.50 each; $10 for a team of four. For the rest of us who just like to watch the teams go at it; there is no charge. Free bratwurst, hot dogs and lemonade will be available but you are welcome to bring your own beverage if you prefer. See Geri to register your team or just come out and enjoy a beautiful day while you root for your favorite team. This event is always thrilling and exciting but most importantly; always a fun time. Ladies PoolOur Ladies Traveling Pool league is in full stride; Team Captain Ruth Hurley provided the following progress report on our girls. The season began in September and so far they have played each of the Ocala Palms teams once. In the first match, our team lost 15 to 12 but came back in the second match up to win by 15 to 12.

We look forward to welcoming all Marion County residents for this huge sale event.Bowl-a-thonFor the second year in a row our Cherrywood bowlers have joined up with the Veterans Club for our annual Bowl-a-thon. This is a major fundraiser for the Veterans Club as they assist such places as Fischer House; Wounded Warriors; Ritz House for homeless veterans; and many other local charities. Many of our bowlers have a pledge sheet where individuals can pledge any amount of money either by pin or flat rate. For example, if you pledge a penny a pin and your bowler rolls 150 each game for three games; you would owe $4.50. A flat rate pledge is just that; a flat rate no matter what the bowler rolls. If you pledge $5 at the end of the series, that is the amount you would owe. If you are a business owner and would like to donate a gift certificate or items for the raffles, you are more than welcome to do that. This is a great way to promote your business and help out an organization that does so much for the community. All gifts and donations are tax deductible Your Cherrywood Veterans Club is a non-profit organization made up entirely of volunteers. None of the officers or members receives any compensation for their services. Anything you can do to support our bowlers and our Veterans Club is greatly appreciated so sign up today.

In addition, guest speakers and field trips are always available as well as helpful people willing to share their own knowledge and tips. For everyone who has a green thumb or who would like to have one, this is the place to be. You will learn a lot and share with some kindred spirits at our Garden Club.

Prizes will be awarded for best costumes and there will be a door prize raffle. Dont miss out on a great time with your friends and neighbors this Halloween; no trick, just a fun treat. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 18 PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE20 Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, Oct. 17, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. Meetings are open to everyone in the community so you dont have to be a member to attend. This month we have a special guest speaker from Pets Uplifting People (PUPS). They supply and pack food for the Pets on Wheels program and bring their pets to nursing homes around the greater Ocala area. Please give us a call at 352-362-0985 if you would like more information about our meetings or have any other questions for us. The SPCA will have a table at the Blessing of the Animals at Grace Episcopal Church, 503 S.E. Broadway on Saturday, Oct. 12. The church is in downtown Ocala, a couple of blocks from the square. The event begins at 10 a.m. in the main parking lot. We look forward to seeing you and your beloved companions there. Please stop by and say hello. We will be selling used books on Saturday morning, Oct. 26, next to Winn Dixie in Friendship Center starting at 9 a.m. Most books will cost 25 or 50 cents and all proceeds will go to help the animals.Adoption NewsThe SPCA would like to help Islands Pets find good homes for three of their rescues. This small rescue organization has saved and cared for lost and abused pets in the Caribbean Islands for over twenty years. Following a major hurricane, the shelter was forced to close and look elsewhere to provide for their animals. With the help of volunteers, many of the animals were relocated to the United States to continue their care. While several have been adopted, others are still looking for their forever homes. The following three pets are here in Ocala: The first happy boy is Borromee. As you can see from the picture, his right hind leg is missing. The shelter was called to help out Borromee five days after he was wounded in an accident. By then a massive infection had set in and his leg couldnt be saved. But this boy isnt at all concerned that he has three legs. Hes very active, friendly and talkative. Hes six years old and 50 pounds medium sized. If you take him into your home, hell tell you every day how appreciative he is and you wont find a better conversationalist. The next dog is also a six year old, 50 pound male. Tennessee was found tied out in the hot sun without shade, food or water when he was about a year old. His owner could not be found. Now that his troubles are over, Tennessee is a fun guy with a sense of humor. He especially loves to bring everything he finds while out and about into his kennel so he has something to cuddle up with never destroying or damaging his finds. He will make a special person a very special furry friend. Our last dog is a four year old Lab mix named Quivala. He is the largest at 75 lbs. He came to the shelter by himself as a puppy to play with the other dogs. He followed a caretaker around for SPCA scheduled on meet on Thursday, Oct. 17 Paws & Claws Maria Devine This is Borromee on the left and Tallahassee on the right.

weeks until she took him in, afraid he would get hurt outside. Today Quivala is very lovable, friendly and energetic. Ideally he needs a fenced yard with lots of shade to run and play or access to daily jaunts at the dog park. He likes to relax and meditate in a large crate with the door open. He doesnt care for cats, but likes some dogs usually the female ones. For you large dog lovers out there, he could be a great, playful companion for you. All the dogs are neutered, up to date on their shots, and on heartworm preventative. You can meet them here in Ocala, or learn more about them by calling Marcella at 352-857-4952.

PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE19 PAWSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 Dr. Fleck was our guest speaker last month. She is the director of the TNR and Community Cats program for Sheltering Hands that provide spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, microchipping, ear tipping and mediation assistance for homeless feral and stray cat colonies in Marion and Levy counties. Over 1700 feral and stray cats have gone through the program as of July 1, 2013. Eventually, this will reduce the homeless cat population which in Marion County alone is estimated at 55,000 strong. But that will take a lot of time. There are currently 300 colonies being overseen. If you would like to become a caretaker of a group of two or more cats that you feed, you can call the Community Cat hotline at (352) 509-5228. Dr. Fleck explained that TNR is the humane option for the control of homeless stray and feral cat populations. By safely trapping, sterilizing, vaccinating and then returning cats to their colony site there are fewer kittens and a healthier adult population. Once sterilized there will be fewer nuisance problems associated with breeding behaviors. When possible, adoptable cats, especially kittens, are placed in forever homes. Unfortunately most feral cats are not socialized and are generally considered non adoptable. Untill next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. This is Quivala.

Friday, October 4, 2013 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, October 4, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Friday night, a sellout crowd came into the Clubhouse with a sense of anticipation and excitement. Admission was only two dollars and a dish to pass and by 5:30; the food table was looking like a Thanksgiving feast. Fruit and cheeses; cakes and cookies; chicken pie and shepherds pie; melon and salsa with chips; and much more were all arrayed and waiting for the hungry throng. The 125 paid guests did their best to devour everything and managed to put a significant dent it the spread. When everyone had filled themselves with the delicious food, it was time for the entertainment and it was some of the best we have ever had. The Spirit of Ocala Irish Step Dancers was on hand and they gave an awesome performance. Approximately seventeen girls make up this lively and energetic troupe and they range in age from 6 to 17. For nearly an hour they put on a display of Irish Step Dancing that took away the breath of the audience. Along with the synchronized dancing, Alyssa Glosson sang a few solos that brought the house down. A graduate of the University of Oregon, Alyssa, along with being an excellent vocalist, is an accomplished Viola musician. Alyssa is the mother of one of the step dancers; 12-year-old Alivia. Along with her dancing, Alivia is also a Junior Olympic swimmer. Morgan Gibson danced and played some solos on the violin. Her songs brought tears to the eyes of many as she played with her heart as well as her hands. Thunderous applause greeted her as the final note sounded on her performance. Maisey Ratcliffe and Morgan share the duties of instructors and choreographers for the group. Mature beyond their years; these two teen-agers bring a dedication and expertise to their craft that is amazing and astounding. Following the show, the group was given a standing ovation by the appreciative audience. Numerous prizes and raffles were held through out the evening and of course, our own Rich Becotte had everyone on the dance floor with his soft and mellow music. A record number of line dancers were also up and moving as they shared the good times. There is no doubt that we gave a good accounting of ourselves in celebrating the birthday of Arthur Guinness; founder of Guinness Brewing in Ireland. Ample green was on display in the clothing of guests; just enough spirits were consumed and the entertainment was tailored to the occasion. There are plans to bring back the Spirit of Ocala Irish Dancers and we recommend this nonprofit group to anyone who wants class entertainment at their next party. We thank the dancers and we thank our Social Committee for a glorious event.

PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE19 PAWSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 Dr. Fleck was our guest speaker last month. She is the director of the TNR and Community Cats program for Sheltering Hands that provide spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, microchipping, ear tipping and mediation assistance for homeless feral and stray cat colonies in Marion and Levy counties. Over 1700 feral and stray cats have gone through the program as of July 1, 2013. Eventually, this will reduce the homeless cat population which in Marion County alone is estimated at 55,000 strong. But that will take a lot of time. There are currently 300 colonies being overseen. If you would like to become a caretaker of a group of two or more cats that you feed, you can call the Community Cat hotline at (352) 509-5228. Dr. Fleck explained that TNR is the humane option for the control of homeless stray and feral cat populations. By safely trapping, sterilizing, vaccinating and then returning cats to their colony site there are fewer kittens and a healthier adult population. Once sterilized there will be fewer nuisance problems associated with breeding behaviors. When possible, adoptable cats, especially kittens, are placed in forever homes. Unfortunately most feral cats are not socialized and are generally considered non adoptable. Untill next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. This is Quivala.

We look forward to welcoming all Marion County residents for this huge sale event.Bowl-a-thonFor the second year in a row our Cherrywood bowlers have joined up with the Veterans Club for our annual Bowl-a-thon. This is a major fundraiser for the Veterans Club as they assist such places as Fischer House; Wounded Warriors; Ritz House for homeless veterans; and many other local charities. Many of our bowlers have a pledge sheet where individuals can pledge any amount of money either by pin or flat rate. For example, if you pledge a penny a pin and your bowler rolls 150 each game for three games; you would owe $4.50. A flat rate pledge is just that; a flat rate no matter what the bowler rolls. If you pledge $5 at the end of the series, that is the amount you would owe. If you are a business owner and would like to donate a gift certificate or items for the raffles, you are more than welcome to do that. This is a great way to promote your business and help out an organization that does so much for the community. All gifts and donations are tax deductible Your Cherrywood Veterans Club is a non-profit organization made up entirely of volunteers. None of the officers or members receives any compensation for their services. Anything you can do to support our bowlers and our Veterans Club is greatly appreciated so sign up today.

Prizes will be awarded for best costumes and there will be a door prize raffle. Dont miss out on a great time with your friends and neighbors this Halloween; no trick, just a fun treat. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 18 PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE20 Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, Oct. 17, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. Meetings are open to everyone in the community so you dont have to be a member to attend. This month we have a special guest speaker from Pets Uplifting People (PUPS). They supply and pack food for the Pets on Wheels program and bring their pets to nursing homes around the greater Ocala area. Please give us a call at 352-362-0985 if you would like more information about our meetings or have any other questions for us. The SPCA will have a table at the Blessing of the Animals at Grace Episcopal Church, 503 S.E. Broadway on Saturday, Oct. 12. The church is in downtown Ocala, a couple of blocks from the square. The event begins at 10 a.m. in the main parking lot. We look forward to seeing you and your beloved companions there. Please stop by and say hello. We will be selling used books on Saturday morning, Oct. 26, next to Winn Dixie in Friendship Center starting at 9 a.m. Most books will cost 25 or 50 cents and all proceeds will go to help the animals.Adoption NewsThe SPCA would like to help Islands Pets find good homes for three of their rescues. This small rescue organization has saved and cared for lost and abused pets in the Caribbean Islands for over twenty years. Following a major hurricane, the shelter was forced to close and look elsewhere to provide for their animals. With the help of volunteers, many of the animals were relocated to the United States to continue their care. While several have been adopted, others are still looking for their forever homes. The following three pets are here in Ocala: The first happy boy is Borromee. As you can see from the picture, his right hind leg is missing. The shelter was called to help out Borromee five days after he was wounded in an accident. By then a massive infection had set in and his leg couldnt be saved. But this boy isnt at all concerned that he has three legs. Hes very active, friendly and talkative. Hes six years old and 50 pounds medium sized. If you take him into your home, hell tell you every day how appreciative he is and you wont find a better conversationalist. The next dog is also a six year old, 50 pound male. Tennessee was found tied out in the hot sun without shade, food or water when he was about a year old. His owner could not be found. Now that his troubles are over, Tennessee is a fun guy with a sense of humor. He especially loves to bring everything he finds while out and about into his kennel so he has something to cuddle up with never destroying or damaging his finds. He will make a special person a very special furry friend. Our last dog is a four year old Lab mix named Quivala. He is the largest at 75 lbs. He came to the shelter by himself as a puppy to play with the other dogs. He followed a caretaker around for SPCA scheduled on meet on Thursday, Oct. 17 Paws & Claws Maria Devine This is Borromee on the left and Tallahassee on the right.

This year those events will include; shuffleboard; horseshoes; Bocce ball and would you believe, Wellie Wanging. No, I didnt misspell Wellie Wanging and frankly, I was just as confused as you are when I first heard of it. Wellie Wanging is really a sport. You take a green garden boot; wind up in what ever way you wish and then fling it as far as you can. I can only assume this game began when a bunch of frustrated gardeners got off work and once they removed their muddy boots, expressed their discontent by throwing them as far away as possible. Entry fee for contestants is just $2.50 each; $10 for a team of four. For the rest of us who just like to watch the teams go at it; there is no charge. Free bratwurst, hot dogs and lemonade will be available but you are welcome to bring your own beverage if you prefer. See Geri to register your team or just come out and enjoy a beautiful day while you root for your favorite team. This event is always thrilling and exciting but most importantly; always a fun time.

If you ask any school child how Columbus got to America, they will tell you in a ship, of course. I will ask the question: Who financed the ship (s) and the whole expedition? Here is where history gets very interesting if not a bit ironic. When Christopher Columbus approaches the two Spanish monarchs of historical fame, Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand of Aragon, the royals were not receptive to the proposals of Columbus. Sailing west to reach India and therefore securing an important trade route for spices for the Spanish monarchs was a risky venture and there were no guarantees. The expedition would be very costly and would reduce the royal coffers considerably. While this was being debated, the Inquisition was in full force in Spain. Jews were forcibly being made to convert to Christianity or risk death. Jews that did convert were watched very carefully for any signs of Judaizing and those suspected of such were turned over to the Inquisition for torture and questioning. If convicted these unfortunates faced death by burning at the stake. These Jews that converted were called Conversos or anusim (hidden ones) because publically they were Christians but in secret they remained faithful to their Jewish heritage. Numerous Jews, notably Don Isaac Abrananvel, supported financially Columbus idea of an expedition but it was two Conversos, Luis de Santangel, the finance minister of Aragon, and Raphael Sanchez, treasurer, who played critical roles in securing the monarchs support for Columbus venture. History tells us that it was Luis de Santangel who finally convinced Isabella and Ferdinand of the importance of Columbus trip. Ironically he is credited with telling them that by finding a new route to India would enable them to help spread Christianity. Even while he was presenting his argument to Isabella and Ferdinand, it has been speculated that he was really hoping that Columbus would find a safe haven for the Jews of Spain who were in peril for their lives. As history would play out, with the financial backing of the Jews, the monarchs signed the papers authorizing Columbus trip on the same day as the paper for the expulsion for the Jews from Spain was signed. While one door closed for the Jews, another was about to open with the discovery of the New World. And in further irony, the first person to step on the soil of the New World was a Converso, Luis de Torres. He was chosen for the expedition as an interpreter for the Indians. It was believed that the Native Americans were descendants of the Lost Tribes of Israel who had immigrated to the New World. Since de Torres could speak Hebrew due to his Jewish heritage, it was believed he would be able to communicate with the native peoples. The Native Americans were indeed members of the tribe, just not the Jewish ones. As history was to play out, Jewish settlers and their financial backing were to play an important part in the American Experience, during the War for Independence as well as the Civil War. Their contributions to America were to help shape the moral, financial and cultural fiber of their adopted country and Columbus discovery indeed became a haven for Jews.

She just joined Performing Arts Company of Oak Run in May, and at her first meeting she volunteered to be the director. She has been immersed in this show ever since, so unless youre involved with the show, you probably dont know her. It is time to introduce her. Janice was grew up in the small town of Tiffin in northwest Ohio. When she was 2 years old, her mother entered her in a contest where she won a Hollywood screen test. She has it framed and hanging on the wall in her home. She was active in theatre throughout high school, and in 1987 she auditioned at the Ritz Theatre in downtown Tiffin for the first time (on a dare). She got a small speaking role in I Remember Mama, and has been hooked ever since. She considers the Ritz Theatre her second home. From 1987 2006, she was involved there with over 50 plays, doing anything and everything including acting, props, set, stage manager, make-up and directing. For several years, she worked with the Missoula Childrens Theater, mentoring and teaching children at two-week theater camps. She was President of the Ritz Players for several years and was awarded Volunteer of the Year in 2003. Janice moved to Ocala in 2006, and then into Oak Run in April of 2013. She feels that PACOR is exactly what she needed to be truly happy in Florida! PACOR welcomes Janice to our theatre group and are anxious to see her acting on our stage as well as directing future shows.White Elephant Sale The White Elephant Sale will be Saturday, Oct. 5, at Palm Grove from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.Do You Remember?Tune in channel 12 for Len Teitlers presentation of the Ambassadors September 2013 Red Carpet Dance, narrated by Anna Boodee.

Friday, October 4, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING 22~ Friday, October 4, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Iawoke last Tuesday with a strange feeling I had missed something. Not only that, but I was shivering like a polar bear without his pajamas. I knew something was wrong but to put my finger on it was just too early in the morning for me. I like starting my days slowly. At my age just getting up is quite an accomplishment. I felt my forehead to see if I had a fever. I found my forehead easily enough, just above my eyes, but I can never tell if I am hot, cold or lukewarm. The condition progressed to such a degree I had to swallow my pride and inquiry of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She can look at me and tell me if I am sick or not. Usually, Im sick. So I approached her and said, Am I sick or what? Quick as a wink she said, Off the top of my head I would say you are or what. And this was just the beginning of my day. Then my wife looked at me and said, Why do you ask? So I explained to her about the feeling I had that something was missing and on top of that, I could not stop shivering. She felt my forehead to see if I had a fever, and I did not. When she turned her back on me, I was tempted to stick out my tongue and say AHH. Well, she said, youre not sick and I dont understand how you could be cold. I looked aimlessly out the window and began to shiver more. It looks like its cold out there, I complained. My wife looked at me with one of those looks that every husband knows and fears, and said, It should be cold outside, its winter, for Petes sake. Winter? What happened to summer? Oh you silly boy, my wife chuckled, summers over and winters brewing. I just stared out the window at the bleakness of the morning, wondering where in the world summer went. At the moment, it did not seem possible to me that summer was over. Is not that the way things go? Just as soon as you get used to something, it is over. I suppose it is because a person becomes so busy doing the mundane daily things he fails to consider the whole picture. If you do not enjoy what you are doing right now, one day you will look back and wonder where in the world it disappeared. At my age, it seems that looking back has become quite a career. I remember when I was young the old folks used to say, I remember the good old days. Ive often wondered what they were talking about. Now I know. When I was young, my whole life was looking forward, but now that I am old, I spend part of my time looking at the rearview mirror. That is the wonderful advantage of getting older. When you are young, you do not have anything to look back to. The older you get the more you have to look back on. I have a few things I reflect on. One is the memories I have made throughout the years. Often when my wife and I are sitting together one of us will say, Do you remember when...? Then one of us will recite a wonderful memory from the past and have a good laugh together. Maybe this is why older people laugh so much. I know it is why I laugh a lot. One of the wonderful things about a persons memory is that it is personal. I will not say that I enhance my memories, of course I do, but I will not confess to it. If it is my memory I should be able to recite it any which way I please. I particularly enjoy those memories that I share with no one else. Because then, I have the freedom to remember it any which way I please. I once listened to a very old woman share memories of her childhood. At the time, she was in her early 90s. As I drove away from listening to her I thought to myself, I wonder how much of those memories were really true. Then again, they were her memories not mine. Who am I to judge? Also in looking back, there are those things we refer to as regrets. I suppose everybody tries to live in such a way to keep regrets to a minimum. I have a long list of things I regret doing or saying or not doing or not saying. The one category of regrets I have are those things that I have done that my wife knows about. Talk about memory? This brings up the difference between a husband and a wife. A husband cannot remember anything and his wife cannot forget anything. But between the two, they lick the platter clean. The apostle Paul practiced the fine art of forgetting. He wrote, Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14 KJV). My rearview mirror is full and the temptation is to focus solely on them missing the scenery in front of me.Rev. James L.

Today is World Smile Day. Celebrated on the first Friday in October every year, it was originated by Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts. In 1963 he created the smiley face, an image that has been used around the world ever since. Harvey Balls idea for the holiday is that all of us should devote one day each year to smiles and kind acts. Todays Pun Alley wants to bring some smiles to your face and burst those smiles into some laughs.Real chicksFarmer John originally lived on a rural highway. But now traffic was so heavy and fast that his freerange chickens were being run over at a rate of three to six a day. He called the sheriff and complained. County workers erected a sign that said, Slow School Crossing. This didnt help so the county workers put up a new sign, Slow Children At Play. Farmer Johns chickens were still being run over so after continuous complaining to the sheriff he finally asked, Your signs are doing no good. Can I put up my own sign? The sheriff told him, Sure thing, put up your own sign. After that there were no more complaints from Farmer John. The sheriff, being curious, drove out to Farmer Johns house, and his jaw dropped when he saw the sign. It was spray painted on a sheet of plywood, Nudist Colony Go slow and watch for chicks.Courtroom Bible testIn the court the judge was asking a child some questions to determine her reliability as a witness. Do you know anything that is in the Bible? I know everything. What? the judge exclaimed in astonishment. Tell us some of the things that are in there. Well, she said, theres a picture of sisters boy friend, mothers recipe for meatloaf, a curl of mine and the pawn ticket for daddys watch. Hows that?The maharaja of an Indian province decreed a ban on hunting wildlife, and soon the country was overrun with man-eating animals. When the people could stand it no longer, they gave the maharaja the heave ho. This may be the first time in history when the reign was called on account of game. SmilesI was always taught to respect my elders, but it keeps getting harder to find one. An anecdote is a tale, said the teacher. Now, Sidney, use it in a sentence. I tied a tin can to the dogs anecdote. I had amnesia once or twice Another name for stable thinking is horse sense. If youre traveling in Scandinavia and you come to the last Lapp, you must be near the Finnish line. I told my friend that she drew her eyebrows too high. She looked surprised. Is it me or do buffalo wings taste like chicken? A dinosaur with an extensive vocabulary is known as a thesaurus.First in LineBettys mother, who is known for always adhering to the speed limit, took her granddaughter with her to visit a friend. When Bettys daughter got home, she was excited about the trip. She explained the ride home, There was a whole line of cars and we were first.SpeechlessHenry and Molly were in divorce court after many years of marriage. The judge asked, Henry, is it true that through the last three years of your marriage, you did not speak to Molly? Yes, your honor, that is correct. And how do you explain this unusual conduct? Harry replied, I didnt want to interrupt her, Your Honor.JumpyGlenn and Scott, were bungee-jumping one day when Glenn had a brainstorm, You know, we could make a lot of money running our own bungee-jumping service in Mexico. Scott agreed, so they bought everything needed a tower, an elastic cord, insurance, etc. In Mexico as they were setting up in a vacant lot, a crowd gathered. When everything was ready Glenn give it a test jump. When he bounced at the end of the cord and came back up, Scott noticed that Glenn had a few cuts and scratches. Unfortunately, Scott wasnt able catch him, so Glenn fell again, bounced, and then came back up. This time, Glenn was bruised and bleeding. Scott caught him and pulled him in. What happened? he asked. Was the cord too long? Glenn replied, No, the cord was fine, but tell me, what is a piata? Friday, October 4, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, October 4, 2013 www.smcitizen.com our individual responsibility to take care of our own familys needs: food, shelter, clothing, medical care, etc ? Isnt that one reason we have charitable organizations, including churches, to help those who cant help themselves, the truly needy. If we no longer believe in personal responsibility, we have become a Socialist America, just as our enemy predicted years ago. Please understand that a government that gives you everything can turn around and take it from you, that is not what America is and I pray it never will be. God bless America! Wayne Rackley OcalaPerspective on good and evil?Do you believe in good, and evil, or just, good, or just evil? We are once more thrust into a battle between, good, and evil, and many are not able to discern which is which. If you are envious, greedy, dim witted, depraved everything looks good to you. Even Hitler, Mao, Castro, Stalin, Mussollini, Pol Pot, and their ilk look good to you. If you are industrious, productive, mentally competent you probably see good, as good, and evil, as evil. The Mantra of the day is redistribution: Advocated by the new cadre of exploiters who wish to supplant the existing cadre of exploiters. Do we need, or want to exchange exploiters, or do we want to truly be free of exploitation. Free to make the most of our God given talents? Our Founding fathers said all men are created equal. What they should have said is: No man has the right to exploit, demean, or abuse another man. Not in politics, or religion. Period. Ordinary citizens are being exploited by both sets of power lusters in this equation. We need to fix what is wrong, not throw out the good that we have with the bad. The bad are the laws enacted by our legislators at the behest of special interest business groups, laws that favor those groups over ordinary citizens. Our elected officials have not been good stewards. We need to undo the damage, not bring in a new group of exploiters, and control freaks with even worse plans and ideas. Do humans feel good about themselves when they can accomplish something on their own? I think so. We should all have that opportunity. Do you agree? Freedom to do our best on a level playing field.

Friday, October 4, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, October 4, 2013 www.smcitizen.com AndersonvilleAndersonville POW camp was a tragedy that didnt have to happen. The South had nothing to give their troops, much less these prisoners. There had been a prisoner exchange program and then the North cancelled it. Remarkably, Union officials, including President Lincoln and Secretary of War Stanton, refused personal appeals from five paroled Union prisoners from Andersonville in July 1864 to restart the exchange. The men had presented a petition signed by most of the prisoners asking for help. It amazes me that you never hear anything about what happened in the Union prisons. The North had plenty of supplies like blankets, clothing, shoes, medical, etc., but refused to give these to the CSA prisoners as a form of punishment. I suggest that the readers look up the following Union prison camps: Alton, Indiana; Camp Chase, Ohio; Camp Douglas, Chicago, Illinois; Hart Island, New York; Fort Lafayette, New York; Camp Morton, Indiana; Rock Island Barracks, Illinois, Camp Butler, Illinois, Fort Delaware; Elmira Prison, New York; Johnson Island, Ohio; Fort McHenry, Baltimore, Maryland; Point Lookout, Maryland; Fort Warren Boston Harbor, Massachusetts. It would be my guess that most people never heard of these places. Trueman G. Griffin Palm CayWho Congress works forDuring this period of time when everyone in the United States is doing their part in working through these budget cuts that sequestration has brought to America some are ignoring its problems. Our military may be hurt the most with these drastic budget cuts at a time when we are still fighting a major conflict in Afghanistan where Americans are dying each and every day. Every program that has been set aside to help our federal, state and local governments that provide for our people have been cut to the bone. We are eliminating programs that have been on the books for years that provide work for millions of Americans. Instead of building our roads and bridges putting our people to work we are shrinking our economy. Our workers are earning less money and paying less in taxes which reduce the funds that we need to keep our country running. Regardless of what you have lost, what you have given up there is one group of people who are able to continue their lavish lifestyle. They feel that they are above the law of the little people because they made these laws that we all have to live by. I am talking about the Congress of the United States of America. They are a selfish group of individuals who have no skin in the game, no accountability for their actions because they only answer to their largest campaign contributors. What can we as voters do about these people who do not have to sacrifice the way that we do to survive and try to support our families. Could we elect a new Congress in 2014 that believes in representing whats best for all Americans? Jerry Segovis Ocala230 stood up for AmericaThey voted to defund the Great American Tragedy, Affordable Health Care, the biggest con job in recent history. Somehow liberals believe we can add millions to the insured roles, many with pre-existing illnesses, add government bureaucrats, including more IRS agents, and maintain our quality health care at a reduced cost. Please go back to school and study Economics 101 at the very least, and it would help if you had some knowledge of our Constitution. The cost of this program will skyrocket and medical care will deteriorate as big government makes our medical decisions for us. Talk to your doctor and also question why our president and Congress dont have to be covered under it, just like ordinary citizens have to be. Doesnt that raise a red flag for you? I cant believe so many believe Florida should take the free money being offered to us by the Fed. What planet do they live on to believe that if it comes from the Fed, we should take it with a big thank you? Where do you think the money comes from? All grants also come with strings attached and thankfully, our leaders want no part of it. What part of we have no money for more programs is so hard to understand? If we dont cut back on our debt, we are going bankrupt, then what? If you truly believe that everyone is entitled to health care, nothing would stop you from adopting a family and paying for their coverage. I dont think you have the right to demand others to pay for their coverage, but it would be very charitable for you to do so.

SWCC was officially founded on Sunday, Oct. 7, 2001 with 29 charter members. Our first meeting place was the Saddlewood Elementary School. Our first ministry team was Gordon Nelson and his wife Estelle, both of whom had previously served as missionaries in Africa for over 30 years. In 2003 the church moved to the Hospice Center on Southwest 34th Avenue. While meeting at Hospice, the church began to search for land on the southwest side of Ocala on which to build our church building and was sucessful in finding 10 acres, our current location, at 9045 S.W. 60th Ave. In early 2003 we were blessed to be able to pay off the land purchase and acquire financing for our new building and begin construction in 2003. Then on Easter Sunday in 2005, we met for the first time in our new building with over 350 worshipers attending and officially dedicated our new church building. We continue to be the same traditional worshiping church as originally founded and strive to serve our Lord Jesus Christ on the southwest side of Ocala and throughout the surrounding area. We invite all who may be seeking a church home to come and visit with us and see if we might be the church home you are seeking.

Friday, October 4, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 4, 2013 BY BRYAN GOLDEN Dare to Live Without LimitsThe American Dream is freedom. Freedom from oppression, tyranny, and subjugation. Freedom from dictatorial individuals and government. Freedom to control your destiny. Freedom to benefit from your hard work and creativity. Freedom to succeed or fail. Freedom to determine your level of prosperity. The American Dream was established on the principle that, for the first time in human history, a country was established with a government designed to be a servant of the people. The American Dream is one of self-sufficiency, not government dependence and control. The American Dream cultivates the limitless power of the individual to build, create, discover, invent, and innovate. The American Dream is the pioneer spirit that motivates people to succeed against all odds in order to do what has never been done before. Prior to Americas founding, countries around the world had been so oppressed by totalitarian regimes that individual freedom was an unknown concept. Ones position in life was determined by those in power. There was no hope of a better existence. An individual had no control over his destiny no matter how hard he worked. The position someone was born into was where they remained for life. The American Dream recognized the equality of each person as being an inalienable right. It didnt matter who you were or where you started, you could go anywhere. The American Dream is simple. It puts the destiny of every individual into their own hands. Each person is free to benefit directly from their efforts. The American Dream taps into the essence of human nature; when people have the freedom to determine their own destiny, productivity flourishes. The American Dream unleashed the power of the individual as never before. In less than 200 years from our founding, America had surpassed all other nations in wealth, production, and innovation. Americans have created and maintained the highest standard of living ever known. The American Dream attracts people from every other country because of its unparalleled liberty. The American Dream is one of equal opportunity, not equal outcomes. The regimes people escaped from all proved that the only outcome that can be guaranteed is the equal distribution of misery. Every American benefits from The American Dream. Success has a positive impact on all. It creates a vibrant, growing society filled with opportunity. People are willing to work hard when they are free to benefit from their efforts and able to retain the fruits of their labor. Nothing is better than The American Dream where each individual has the right and freedom to determine their own life. What is the alternative? Is it being told what you can and cannot do? Is it having some person or government deciding what is fair for you to have? There are those who dont like The American Dream. The reasons are many: greed, power, control, or the destruction of our country. Regardless of their motives, the result if they are successful is the same; the loss of freedom and the inability to control your life and destiny. Although its difficult to believe that anyone could be opposed to liberty, both history and current events clearly demonstrate that those who want to destroy The American Dream exist and are determined to subvert your freedom. The ever present threat to The American Dream is people who believe the government should control you, dictate how you live, and determine what is permitted. These power hungry authoritarians seek to enrich themselves by creating laws designed to confiscate the results of your hard work. The American Dream attracts vermin who view government as an opportunity to enrich themselves by confiscating wealth from others. The success of the productive attracts economic parasites. The American Dream requires your constant care, vigilance, and support to keep it alive. Freedom is your right, but it isnt free. Take it for granted, and it will vanish. No one has the right to steal your American Dream. Stand up for liberty and reject anyone who wants to take it from you. You are The American Dream. When I was a kid, and I wanted to make a telephone call, I would pick up the receiver and immediately hear a voice say, Number please. She (it was always a she) took the number and made the call for you. Then eventually we progressed to a phone with a circular dial on it, and you could dial the number directly without speaking to anyone. I do know that New Jersey, where I lived, was the first location to be assigned an area code. Area codes, and subsequently dialing 1, virtually eliminated the operator. But you could still call an operator by dialing 0 or, eventually, pushing the 0 button on what we called push-button phones. Last week, I was trying to call a business phone that started with a toll-free area code of 888. I kept getting two results: Either it would ring forever, or it would ring once and I would get that awful tone and a message that All circuits are busy. To me, this made no sense. Finally, I reverted to my old days and pushed 0 to get an operator. I then got a lesson on how things had changed. I immediately got a recorded voice telling me to press 1 to make a call or some other thing, or press 2 for the business office and things like that. So I pressed 1. Then I got one of my least favorite messages, press 1 for English, and a voice speaking in Spanish where I picked up the words espanol and dos, which from my old high school classes I knew meant Spanish and two. So I pressed 1 and then got another message to press 1 for this and that, and press 2 for something else, etc. I cant remember what I pressed, but I got another menu. At some point I had a choice to troubleshoot my problem automatically, but I bypassed that and eventually was told to push 0. When a woman answered, I have to admit I was a little perturbed and said, Are you human? She said she was, so I told her my original problem. She immediately said, Oh, I have to give you another number to call. And so it started all over again. Finally, I got a human, and she said she would try the number for me. She couldnt get through, either, so I asked her if she would check the line. She said no, she couldnt do that, and I should call repair and tell them the problem. Remember, all this started because I simply pushed 0 and wanted to talk to an operator. At that point, I just gave up, and by the next morning the problem resolved itself. This, though, is an example of how automated our lives have become. The personal touch is long gone, especially at major firms like the phone company. In an old movie, The Bells of St. Marys, Bing Crosby played a priest named Father OMalley. He used to tell people jokingly when they were in trouble to dial 0 for OMalley. If they dialed 0 today, it would be a miracle if they got Father OMalley. Its almost a miracle when they get to talk to an operator.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

The secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection has an opportunity to risk political suicide but prove that logic is not lost in the management of water resources. While the secretary wasnt present when challenges to the states minimum flows law for the Chassahowitzka and Homosassa rivers were presented recently, its his job to rule if the law should be superseded by the rivers status as Outstanding Florida Waters (OFWs). In pondering the situation, Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. should draw heavily on common sense and political perspective. State policy to review flows in rivers throughout the state was initially viewed apparently naively as a means to gauge the status of the rivers health. As it turns out, that data has been contorted into a mechanism for condoning reduced flows. While water district officials responsible for setting the minimum flows and levels (MFLs) bristle at the reality, flow reduction equates to increased pollution. Much political spin has been offered in an attempt to separate MFLs from OFW status but they are both law and blatantly contradict each other. Reduced flow allows for greater concentrations of polluting nitrates and exacerbates saltwater intrusion. History has made that evident. The petitioners at the Sept. 10 hearing before the DEP representative were in no way a bunch of yahoos bellyaching about some far-fetched conspiracy. An attorney articulated the contentions of three environmental groups and three individuals that reduced flows are contrary to OFW status. Dr. Bob Knight of the Florida Springs Institute supported their claim with scientific data. While the legal and scientific representatives from the water district were earnest in saying the approved reduction of MFLs are consistent with their dictates, theyre seeking cover by detaching reduced flows from increased pollution. The districts position is that the rules are consistent with the Water Resource Implementation Rule and they do not negatively impact any water resource values and are consistent with all relevant water quality standards, the water district attorney stated. Thats fine, if one dismisses the degradation reaped to date by nitrateand saltwater-induced degradation on the Homosassa and Chassahowitzka. Its a simple question: How will allowing reduced flow aka increased withdrawals benefit the water quality of the rivers? That is the question the DEP secretary must evaluate. While theres been much publicity and praise for the governors $37 million springs restoration initiative, state agencies be it the DEP or water districts are cogs in the political machine. With Gov. Rick Scott driving that machine, they are tasked with carrying out the agenda of a leader who, springs initiative aside, has hardly been viewed as the environmental governor. No doubt, balancing the states economic interests with environmental concerns is no easy task, and allowing increased water withdrawals hence reduced flow has major economic overtones. All of that aside, the matter before the DEP secretary is simple: Does Outstanding Florida Water status override the condoned reduction of water flow? These are not issues that can be separated.

Jazz concert at Marion Oaks churchFall into the rhythm of autumn with a free jazz concert featuring Charlie Remillard and the Usual Suspects 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, at Our Saviour Lutheran Church, 260 Marion Oaks Lane. 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.

Friday, October 4, 2013 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, October 4, 2013 www.smcitizen.com FORDLANDIA By Greg Grandin Fordlandia, Greg Grandins cautionary tale of pride that goeth before the fall, describes in riveting detail Henry Fords attempt to build a Midwestern town and rubber plantation in the heart of the Amazon junglea disaster primed to happen. Did Ford long for a new frontier or was the rubber he needed for his burgeoning automobile business the one resource beyond his control? In the late twenties he was persuaded to buy an Amazon tract the size of Connecticut, land Brazil would have given him had he been hands on about the project. Instead, he trusted self-interested managers to negotiate terms. Fords personality sometimes got in the way; he could make bad decisions if convinced the idea was his own. Lying along the banks of the Tapajos River, the settlement offered American managers and native laborers modern amenities like indoor plumbing, screened windows, hospitals, schools, swimming pools and even a golf course. What it didnt deliver was rubber. The rubber trees he tried to plant succumbed to leaf blight, insects, and other scourges. His Michigan-raised overseers collapsed from disease and heat prostration. Many of their children died. There were riots. Some returned to America but a surprising number remained despite the overwhelming obstacles. But the Amazon story was more than an industrial empire gone awry even with millions of dollars pouring into the region. Ford tried to use the blank canvas of the jungle for human engineering by imposing on the natives wholesome living and old-fashioned values. It backfired. Their Cape Cod bungalows trapped heat; the cafeteria-style meals disgusted them. They either fled into the jungle or rebelled. And everyone kept askingwhen will Ford come here? He never did. In the end, the failed 20 million dollar venture was sold to Brazil for $244,000. Between chapters on Fordlandia Grandin reveals Ford the mana genius, a visionary but also a despicable anti-Semite and verbal abuser of his only son Edsel, a talented, refined man who died at 49. After his sons death Henry Ford tried to explain the humiliation hed heaped on Edsel throughout his life. He was only, he said, trying to show the world that his very rich child was not pampered. Although not fast paced, this book is an engrossing read.

increase in the millage rate for that MSTU with a 3-2 vote (commissioners Carl Zalak III and Stan McClain dissenting). This enables the Marion County Sheriffs Office patrol and criminal investigation division to remain funded for fiscal year 2013-14 at the same level as in fiscal year 2012-13. The adopted millage rate of 3.21 for the MSTU for law enforcement equates to $3.21 for each $1,000 of taxable property value, or $215 for a home assessed at the average taxable value of $67,000. The MSTU is applied to properties in the unincorporated areas of the county that receive sheriff patrol services. During the last six years, Marion County has experienced a 38 percent decline in the countywide taxable property value, a decrease of approximately $8.5 billion. Budget reductions from Marion Countys departments and constitutional offices over those years have resulted in a property tax savings of $29.4 million for fiscal year 2013-14 compared to fiscal year 2007-08.Friday, October 4, 2013 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, October 4, 2013 www.smcitizen.com BUDGETCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 To help educate motorists, events are planned and information is being shared across the state during the month of October. This includes participation at high school assemblies, radio public service announcements, collaboration with local law enforcement agencies, and a variety of print messaging and electronic notices along Florida highways and turnpikes. Organizations interested in helping promote the new law can visit their local AAA office for information. Sending or receiving a text takes a drivers eyes from the road for an average of 4.6 seconds, the equivalent of driving, at 55 mph, the length of an entire football field, blind. With more than 6 billion text messages sent each day in the United States, it is important to remind drivers to Put It Down. FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad said, Distracted driving is a serious danger on our roadways. Were reminding drivers to be responsible and not text while driving. Safety Tips: Put the cell phone away or silence it while driving so you are not tempted to respond while in motion. Designate a non-driving texter. to respond for you. The Put It Down campaign is part of a comprehensive approach that includes law enforcement and education.

HealthBenefits DidYouKnow?Florida tomatoes are a good source of lycopene (helps prevent skin damage from UV rays), vitamin C (needed for growth and repair of body tissues) and vitamin A (helps vision and bone growth). Did You Know? Botanically, the tomato is a fruit. However, they are legally con sidered a vege table after a ruling in the U.S. Supreme Court. How to Buy The best test for a great tomato is aroma. Smell the stem end for a strong sweet-acidic fragrance. Choose tomatoes that are plump, shiny and give slight pressure when applied. How to Store Tomatoes should be stored at a cool room temperature, out of their packaging and never in the refrigerator. Storing tomatoes in the refrigerator diminishes their flavor. 1 large fresh Florida tomato, crushed 1 cup tomato sauce 1 tablespoon minced garlic 2 teaspoons dried parsley 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves, chopped (save 4 to 6 for garnish) 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper 1 pound spaghetti 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese 8296 SW 103rd St. Rd. 352-237-3676 Monday Friday 9-5, Saturday 9-4 Walk-Ins Welcome Millennium Hair Salon A Certified Goldwell Color Salon 000G9DG $ 14 00 $ 14 00 Must present coupon.

Few people know what the Gold Star Mothers are but they have a long history of sacrifice and service. No one truly wants to join this proud organization because to qualify for membership you must be the natural mother of a man or woman who has lost their life in the service of our country. Since Gold Star Mothers began just after the First World War; unfortunately there has been no shortage of new members. Striving to serve other veterans; to gain strength through mutual support and to show their patriotic pride; the Gold Star Mothers work tirelessly to benefit veterans and their families. On Sunday our service flags were proudly displayed in front of the clubhouse in honor of these special ladies and in tribute to their special day. Only those who have suffered such a loss can know their depth of sorrow and pain but we who have survived can extend our sympathy; express our gratitude and vow never to forget their sacrifice. We, the members of the Cherrywood Veterans Club gladly promise to do just that in honor of these wonderful Moms. We urge all Americans to join us. If you have suggestions or ideas for the Cherrywood section of your Citizen please feel free to contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com It is always good to hear from you, the reader.

Highway 326 when they observed a disturbance in the parking lot. Contact was made with the subjects at which time officers smelled marijuana coming from their vehicle. A Sheriff's K-9 unit arrived and the K-9 alerted on the vehicle for containing drugs. A search revealed 382 grams of synthetic marijuana packaged for distribution, bundles of plastic bags, three scales, and a marijuana pipe. William Griffin, 38, was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail and Ryan Young was issued a Notice to Appear for possession of drug paraphernalia. Griffins address was listed as 5171 S.W. 183rd Terrace, Dunnellon. He was accused of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bond on the marijuana charges was $5,500, but the violation of probaton charges for burglary, grand theft and evidence tampering caused him to be held without bond.

In a unanimous vote during their Sept. 26 public hearing, Marion County commissioners adopted the countywide budget and a millage rate of 3.90 mills for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. A millage rate of 3.90 equates to $3.90 for each $1,000 of taxable property value, or $261 for a home assessed at the average taxable value of $67,000. The adopted millage rate is 0.01, or one one-hundredth of a mill, higher than the fiscal year 2012-2013 millage rate of 3.89. This is due to a required increase in a debt service levy used to pay bonded debt issued for the purchase of parks and environmentally-sensitive land through the voter-approved 1988 Pennies for Parks referendum. All other non-countywide millage rates will remain at their current levels for fiscal year 2013-14, with the exception of the MSTU for law enforcement. With no further reserves available to offset the continued decline in taxable property value, the board approved a 0.40 mill County commissioners adopt new budget PLEASESEEBUDGET, PAGE3 Driving and texting now against lawThe Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and AAA are partnering to reduce distracted driving on Floridas roadways by educating the public about the new Florida law banning texting while driving. Beginning Oct. 1, the Florida ban on Texting While Driving Law went into effect, which will help promote safe driving and address critical issues related to distracted driving in the state of Florida. The provisions of the law state that a person may not operate a motor vehicle in motion while manually typing into a wireless communications device known as texting, emailing and instant messaging (non-voice). AAA applauds Florida for taking steps to save lives, said Amy Stracke, managing director, AAA Traffic Safety Advocacy, The Auto Club Group.
