Not shown is Commissioner David Moore. BY JIM CLARK EditorResidents from the Southwest area gathered for a town hall meeting with county commissioners on Tuesday evening at Freedom Public Library. Commission Chairman Kathy Bryant gave a summary of the countys recent actions, starting with an explanation of the recently passed budget. She noted how the county has been able to hold the line on the millage rate, although home values have dropped 38 percent in recent years, forcing cuts in the budget. She also spoke about economic development, saying that in January 2010, the jobless rate was 14.3 percent, and that in August of this year it was just under 8 percent. She spoke of recent promises of new companies, particularly FedEx Ground, moving into the area. In her district, in which the meeting was held, she spoke of the completion of the 42nd Street flyover, and the traffic light being installed at 103rd Street Road and 49th Avenue. She spoke of the improvements to Liberty Park and the completion of the Marion Oaks waterfall. Commissioner Stan McClain said the federal government shutdown hasnt affected county operations so far. Basically, we dont know its shut down, he said. He said there would be some effect eventually, and also commented on some of the changes taking place because of the shutdown. The Ocala National Forest is shut down, he said, but Im not sure how you shut down a forest. Other commissioners spoke very briefly. One resident asked Lt. Dennis Joiner, commander of the Southwest District Sheriffs Office, about cameras mounted on traffic lights at various intersections. Joiner explained that those are motion sensors, replacing the panels that used to be installed under the streets. Dont worry, big brother isnt watching you, he said. Commissioners meet the public BY JIM CLARK EditorThe location of the production office of the South Marion Citizenand West Marion Messengeris going to change, our parent company, Citrus Publishing Inc. of Crystal River, has announced. Effective Oct. 25, the Citizen and Messenger office on State Road 200 will close. Its an economic decision with some of the functions being moved to the Riverland News office at 20441 E. Pennsylvania Ave. in Dunnellon. Our company owns the building in Dunnellon, so the move will eliminate the need to pay rent for the current office in Kingsland Plaza at 8810 State Road 200. Staff members will be assigned to other locations, but will still be available by e-mail and telephone. Coverage of the news on the Corridor will continue as usual There will be a separate telephone number for news content which will be published shortly, but 352-854-3986 will remain in effect for all other departments, including advertising and delivery. The new fax number will be 352-489-9593 effective Oct. 25. All numbers are local calls from Ocala. The important thing is that your South Marion CitizenandWest Marion Messengerare not changing.

Friday, October 11, 2013 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 2~ Friday, October 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com THE QUEST By Nelson DeMille Set in 1975 in war-torn Ethiopia, DeMilles rewrite of his first novel assembles a trio of journalists who come to believe a dying priests story that the Holy Grail is hidden deep in the countrys jungle. The barely likeable journalists are American Frank Purcell, elderly Brit Henry Mercado and gorgeous young Swiss photographer Vivian Smith. Blurbs touting this book call it thrilling and romantic. But the mnage a trois is more unsavory than romantic as desirable Vivian bestows her favors alternately on both men. Early in the book the three find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time and barely escape their tormenter with their lives. Once again safely ensconced in the Addis Ababa Hilton hotel and later in Rome, the action halts as the characters meet in bar after bar and sometimes in a library to discuss plans for resuming their search for the holy relic. For a hundred pages or more the book slowly slogs forward with endless talk and more history about the Holy Grail than is likely to sustain the readers attention. Once returned to Ethiopia the action picks up again with a scary plane ride and an unexpected reunion with the sadistic Marxist who previously imprisoned them. About that man Purcell says, Men like that are taking over the worldwhat the hell is going on? The violence the author describes is an apt history lesson for todays atrocities on Coptic Christians in Egypt and Syria. In interviews DeMille says that when he first wrote the book his mind was still in the jungles of Vietnam even though hed been out of the Army for five years. This is a stand-alone novel without the quick-witted characters John Corey and Kay Mayfield that readers have come to love. That alone will disappoint some. But the greatest flaw here is that it takes so long for the search for the Holy Grail to materialize that its hard to still care anymore. Recommended only for loyal DeMille fans. Ethiopian search for the Holy Grail Bookmark Pat Wellington Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com UKC (United Kennel Club) Rally Signs ClassRally is a new, fun dog sport where the dog and handler work together as a team. The team will progress through a numbered course of stations with signs, each sign describing the exercise to be performed at that station. Unlike traditional Obedience, Rally encourages the handler to talk to his dog and offer praise and encouragement throughout the course. If you are new to the sport of Rally or if you want to learn or review the UKC Rally signs, a course in UKC Rally will be offered at MADTA (Southeastern Livestock Pavilion) beginning Oct. 29. The course will be taught by recognized UKC Rally judges. There will be a minimum of four classes, class size limited. Rally is fun for everyone and builds the bond between a handler and his dog. Come visit us and see for yourself. Try the class beginning in October and decide if you would like to enter the UKC Rally Trials coming in November. For more information contact Susan Trotto, woofs5@aol.com, put UKC Rally in the subject line, or call 352-347-2989 and leave a message. Visit our website for additional classes, www.MADTA.org.

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 CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 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.

The pantry is open Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and distributes food and hygiene items to qualifying families in need who fall below the federal poverty guidelines.

Friday, October 11, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, October 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A bid for you to step in and take over an incomplete project could prove to be an excellent learning experience that you can take with you when a new opportunity opens up. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its a good time for socializing, both with family and with friends. Your aspects also favor developing new relationships, any or all of which might become especially meaningful. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your success in handling a recent difficult situation prompts a request to handle another workplace problem. But this is one you should accept only if you get all of the relevant facts. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) New information about a past decision raises some unsettling questions from an old friend. Be prepared to explain your actions fully and, if necessary, to make adjustments. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is not a good time to share personal secrets, even with someone youve known for a long while. What you dont reveal now wont come back to haunt you later. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Pushing yourself to meet a project deadline is admirable. But be careful not to leave out important details in your rush to complete your work and send it off. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Watch that you dont take on more than you can handle when offering to help someone with a personal problem. There might be hidden factors you werent told about. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) That major move youve been considering could come sooner than you expected. Make sure youll be ready with the facts you need when decision time arrives. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Languishing relationships can benefit from a break in routine. Get out of the rut and do something new and maybe more than a little unpredictable this weekend. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Although you dont think of yourself as a role model, your ability to make a tough decision at this time sets an example for others, who admire your courage. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You need to move any remaining obstacles out of your way before you can take on a new challenge. Seek advice from close, trusted friends and associates. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A career change appears increasingly likely to happen during the next several weeks. Its a good idea to start now to prepare, so you can be ready to make the move when the time comes. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

The Marion Landing Lifestyle Center is located on Southwest 65th Avenue Road, just off State Road 200 across from Queen of Peace Catholic Church. Admission to this event is free, and it is open to the public. Volunteer recognitionAt the Oct. 1 Tuesday Social, Board Secretary Connie Rowe presented Terry Callarman with the Marion Landing Volunteer Recognition Award. Connie introduced our recipient as follows: This month we are honoring a resident who moved here with his wife in May 2009. Hes what I consider one of the many behind the scenes volunteers for Marion Landing. In 2011, he was a member of the former Social & Recreation Committee. Hes also a Patrol volunteer and drives multiple shifts throughout the year. There are many other times when hes on the road for Marion Landing, but hes not behind the wheel of the Sheriffs Department Prius. At least once a month over the past 4 years, you may have seen him when youve been shopping at various stores in Ocala. If his cart was piled high, he probably wasnt buying those large quantities for home. He was purchasing all the necessary kitchen supplies and equipment from different vendors for functions held in our Lifestyle Center. If you havent guessed who our Volunteer Recognition recipient is yet, Im sure you will recognize him by one his trademarksa red and white checkered hat. It is my pleasure to present the Volunteer Recognition Award to Terry Callarman. Terrys engraved plaque will join the more than 162 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents who are nominated for the award by their peers, and nominations of residents not previously recognized are needed. If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a Board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director for consideration. 50th AnniversariesMarion Landing will be recognizing those residents who have celebrated their 50th Anniversary between Jan. 2007 and Dec. 2012 by holding a gala event on Sunday, Oct. 27. Sixty couples received invitations to attend the celebration which will include a lovely catered dinner, music for dancing and listening pleasure, and commemorative photos, which will be taken at the event for the participating honorees. Tickets will be available to the honorees up until Tuesday, Oct. 15. A waiting list is being compiled of other residents wishing to attend the festivities, and they will be contacted when the number of tickets available is determined. These tickets can be purchased at the Oct. 22 Tuesday Social or through the Activities Office. Committee chair, Nancy Rife, suggests that tickets be purchased early as they are going fast.Games Party a successThe Sunshine Games Party brought more than 100 residents down to the Lifestyle Center on Wednesday, Sept. 25, for an afternoon of friendship, fun, and for a good cause. It began with lunch, and then participants broke into pre-determined groups to play cards and games such as Hand and Foot, Bridge and Bunko, to name a few. The fundraiser, chaired by Lois Norris and co-chaired by Donna Schmidt and Janice Wood, was a great success. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Sunshine Committee, whose mission is to respond to the needs of the Marion Landing Community at times of illness, hospitalization, and death. It also recognizes other milestones of residents such as 60th and 65th anniversaries. It takes a lot of time and energy from a lot of people to put on this type of event, from setup to decorating, to food prep and cleanup. These volunteers are: Martha Nierenberg, Joan Buzzek, Rachel Glenn, Nancy Rife, Gloria Wilberg, Mary Ann Hall, Gordon Herrick, Paula Adwell, Lorraine and Dave Rusch, Ginny and Jim Dillon, Evelyn Olsen, Lorraine De Mauex, Maureen Hake, Joan and Art Dopler, John and Noreen Metzger, Ginger Abbott, Dot Toneske, Leta Simmons, Charlie Mock, Merry Anne Krell and Luis Rios. The community appreciates their dedication and is what makes Marion Landing a wonderful place to live.

Friday, October 11, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 11, 2013 BY JASON ALDERMAN Special to the CitizenIf youre among the 170 million Americans who receive health insurance through an employer-provided plan, youll probably receive your 2014 open enrollment materials shortly. Although its a pain to wade through all that information, simply opting for your current coverage could be a costly mistake. Heres why: Health insurance has undergone major changes since the 2010 Affordable Care Act was passed, including the elimination of annual and lifetime coverage limits and preexisting conditions exclusions, expanded free preventive care and allowing children up to age 26 to remain on parents plans. In response, many employers have altered their benefit plans. Plus, if your family or income situations have changed since last year, your current plans may no longer be the best match. And, if your employer offers flexible spending accounts and youre not participating, youre leaving a valuable tax break on the table. Heres what to look for when reviewing your benefit options: Carefully compare all costs and features of the different plans offered and note how your existing coverage may be changing next year. Common changes include: Dropped or replaced medical plans. Increased monthly premiums, deductibles and copayment amounts. Revised drug formularies. Favored doctors or hospitals withdrawing from a plans preferred provider network. Changes to the number of allowed visits for specialty care (acupuncture, chiropractic, physical therapy, etc.) If offered, healthcare and dependent care flexible spending accounts (FSAs) can significantly offset the financial impact of medical and dependent care by letting you pay for eligible out-of-pocket expenses on a pre-tax basis; that is, before federal, state and Social Security taxes are deducted from your paycheck. This reduces your taxable income and therefore, your taxes. You can use a healthcare FSA to pay for IRS-allowed medical expenses not covered by your medical, dental or vision plans. Check IRS Publication 502 for allowable expenses. Dependent care FSAs let you use pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible expenses related to care for your child, spouse, parent or other dependent incapable of self-care. Heres how FSAs work: Say you earn $42,000 a year. If you contribute $1,000 to a health care FSA and $3,000 for dependent care, your taxable income would be reduced to $38,000. Your resulting net income, after taxes, would be roughly $1,600 more than if you had paid for those expenses on an after-tax basis. Remember these FSA restrictions: Employee contributions are limited to $2,500 a year for health care FSAs and $5,000 for dependent care. Health care and dependent care contributions are not interchangeable. Estimate planned expenses carefully because you must forfeit unused account balances. Some employers offer a grace period of up to 2 months after the end of the plan year to incur expenses, When I was a young lad growing up in northern New Jersey, my dad took the train to work every day. Hed ride to Weehawken, then catch the ferry for the city. Using the reverse route every late afternoon, he always wanted something to do than just sit there on the return trip. Therefore, he bought a couple of newspapers. He would get home and plop the New York Daily News and New York Journal-American on the table. Also, by that time, the Bergen Evening Record out of Hackensack, N.J., would have arrived. I learned at a very young age to read newspapers. I enjoyed the sports in the News and JournalAmerican, but mostly I like leafing through the Record, because it gave me news about the area in which I lived. Even at a tender age, I instinctively knew the importance of that. I still do. This is the 73rd annual National Newspaper Week, which is older than I am (but not by too much). It was designed to make people aware of the advantages of newspapers, even before the proliferation of television, and generations before the Internet. Now more than ever, its important to honor that tradition and the constructive role newspapers play in the life of a community. Technology and the world are changing these days at a feverish pace. Information is available at our fingertips in an instant. The opportunities for communication, discussion and opinion have never been greater. Newspapers play an important role in distilling this great cacophony of information and providing sound and accurate context. We help make sense of it all. We provide readers with news and information they need to live informed and active lives. We offer a list of activities that will keep our readers active and give them the ability to take part in events that can make their stay in Ocala enjoyable. If youre not sure of that, take a look at our Happenings or Community Calendar. The items are arranged by date, so you can refer to the paper all week and find something to do. We offer businesses an opportunity to market their goods and services. We allow people to find places to live, places to work, places to eat, places to get medical help and a place to sell that couch thats been in the basement. Newspapers consistently and reliably provide the most up-todate, accurate and important news. And our audiences recognize this, rating newspapers as the most trusted of all media forms in a recent Nielsen study. While 56 percent say they trust newspapers, 52 percent trust local television and only 37 percent trust social media. In an area such as this, where social media is not as prolific as in other places, we feel those percentages are even higher here in favor of newspapers. Newspapers have always been the cornerstone of our society, and that did not change with the digital revolution. Ever since the Philadelphia Evening Post first published the Declaration of Independence, our newspapers have continued to unite us as communities. The Internet has changed the reading habits of some people, but many still prefer the actual print copy of the newspaper. They realize there are some things that are hard to find in cyberspace, but you can easily open the paper to the puzzle page, and find challenges there, to the opinion page, which you have the right to agree with or not, to the classified ads, to say nothing of some of the other local advertising, some of it in bright color. In our case, the newspaper can sit on your coffee table for a week, and still be relevant, and thats a benefit to advertisers. This, of course, is in addition to the regular news provided about the communities in which you live by dedicated columnists who gather and write the information. So the next time someone tells you newspapers are dying, youd be honest to tell them, Not here. Your community weekly newspaper is alive and well. And we thank you for doing what you are doing right now reading the news. That can help make you an important part of the area in which you live.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

If you didnt take advantage of the town hall meetings held recently at Fire Station 20 near U.S. 27 and this past Tuesday at the Freedom Public Library, then you missed a chance to see grassroots government in action. County commissioners gathered to give reports on government and to hear the concerns of the public, and took notes as people talked about perceived problems they have encountered. Except for one persons rant against Hispanics, the meeting was civil and, at times, featured some humor. That one man said he had gone up to a work crew on the side of the road and found they couldnt speak English. He hinted that they were undocumented aliens and that the county should hire local workers. Commission Chairman Kathy Bryant explained, twice, that any contractor doing business with the county had to use the E-Verify system, which makes sure all the workers are legitimate. Just because they speak Spanish doesnt mean theyre illegal, Bryant said. Commissioners heard complaints about land use. One man spoke out against the commercial zoning in the area of the Freedom Library, when the land was obviously being used for farming. Bare land ought to be treated as bare land, he said. We have to agree with him that the entrance to the library parking lot, which used to be straightforward and simple, now involves thinking, How do I get out of here? It isnt always easy. Another speaker brought up the possible outsourcing of jobs, and Bryant said she would be glad to meet with her and explain the system and how it saves the county money. The same lady spoke of the lack of buses on State Road 200. She also said she would not attend the Fine Arts Festival, which had been moved downtown from the McPherson complex, because of the lack of bus transportation. I fear for the Fine Arts Festival, she said. As Bryant pointed out, though, the Transportation Planning Organization has done studies about buses on the Corridor and found that it is not feasible. We recently tried to attend an event at Citizens Circle in downtown Ocala, the new venue at City Hall, but finally had to leave when we could not find a parking space within a decent walking distance of the venue. Frankly, we have to agree with this lady that the city has not done itself any favors by moving events away from the square, which is now completed and reopened. But the county commissioners did do themselves, and the residents, a favor by holding these meetings. We hope that these will become a regular feature on the calendar for our governing officials.

From your reporterA very close friend of the Cherrywood Veterans Club made President Bill Mahar aware of a program for providing service dogs to assist disabled veterans. In turn, Bill passed the information on to me and in a few days we will be meeting with the organization that provides these loving and helpful companions. Over the years I have had several experiences with people who have service dogs. Leader Dogs for the Blind has a training facility in Rochester, Michigan, and because that was in my neck of the woods, I got to know a little bit about the fantastic work they do. Also, I have had friends who utilize service dogs not for just overcoming their loss of sight but for other maladies as well. I know that these animals and I use the term animals very loosely, provide confidence; companionship and hope as well as their utilitarian functions. At our last meeting, the Cherrywood Veterans Club generously voted to set aside a special fund to raise the $2,500 needed for each dog. These earmarked funds will go for only one purpose and that is to pay for a trained service dog to assist a disabled vet. The club opened the fund with a $200 donation. I can only hope; plead and beg all of my readers to please make a donation to this fund. A tax deductible donation of any amount can be made to the Cherrywood Veterans Club with the word Dog in the memo section of your check. If you can give $5 or $10 or if you can give $100; anything would be truly appreciated. Checks can be mailed to the Cherrywood Veterans Club; 6253 S.W. 100 Loop; Ocala, Fl 34476. We offer this opportunity to not only individuals, but to other organizations such as the veterans community; service groups; students; businesses or anyone with a desire to help a truly in need veteran. We thank the veterans for their service and sacrifice and thank the community for their care and consideration. If you have a comment or suggestion for the Cherrywood section of your Citizen Newspaper, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I am always happy to hear from you, the reader. Acertain situation has been building in the Parsonage for the last several months. At first, I did not think it too serious but alas, we have reached a terrible impasse. It started a few months ago when I came home, walked into the house and was hit in the face so hard I almost passed out. At the time, I was hoping I would pass out, but no such luck. I think everybody knows what it is like to be hit unexpectedly by something you do not actually expect. I guess that is why it is called unexpectedly. It happened to me and I am not sure I am over it yet. Even though I have been married 42 years, of which most of it has been happily, I did not see this one coming. Just when you think you have your spouse figured out, they do something off the radar. Every husband knows exactly what I am talking about. This makes it hard to buy Christmas and birthday presents. What they liked last year is not what they like this year. I remember buying my wife a watch one year for Christmas of which she was so delighted that for the next four years after I bought her a watch for Christmas. How was I supposed to know she only wanted one watch! I think we hit one of those impasses. Walking into the house, I was hit with the horrific smell of broccoli cooking on the stove. I do not know if you ever smelt such a smell as that but if you are not prepared for it and even if you are prepared for it, it can smack you in the face like you have never been smacked in the face before. When I came to myself and gathered what little composure I could find, I queried the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage who was in the kitchen. What is that awful smell? I dont know, have you taken a shower yet? After being married for 42 years, I know when to respond to a question and when not to. I knew if I responded to this question the way I wanted to respond to this question, the smell of broccoli would be the least of my worries at the time. No, I said gathering a little bit of manliness about me, Something in this house smells dreadful. I smelled it as soon as I walked in the door. Then she chuckled. I hate it when she chuckles. Oh, that must be the wonderful aroma of broccoli cooking on the stove. Isnt it marvelous? Adhering to my rules about questions, I tossed that one aside and opted for another one. Youre not cooking broccoli for supper tonight, are you? I was hoping she would catch my attitude of disdain and disgust in this question. Obviously, for whatever reason, she did not catch the drift. Yes, she said as chipper as I have ever heard her chip, I thought I would surprise you with a wonderful dish of broccoli for supper tonight, to go along with our pork chops. Can you live with a person for so long and not know what they like or do not like? Nobody has to be around me for five minutes before they will understand that broccoli and I have had a feud that has been going on since before the Hatfields and McCoys.Friday, October 11, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com The parsonage kitchen shutdown threat Out to Pastor Rev.

On Sunday, Oct. 13, Minister Peter Bunch and wife Penny will be enjoying a well deserved vacation in Myrtle Beach, S.C. at the Gaither Homecoming But I thought you knew I do not like broccoli? Oh, that, she said with another chuckle, I just thought you were joking. Nobody jokes about broccoli, especially me. Then a brilliant idea reverberated between my ears. I thought I could take advantage of this situation and sneak in something forbidden in our kitchen and house for /that matter, a rare delicacy. I will then run to the store and get some fresh Apple Fritters for our dessert. I figured if she wants to put in front of me broccoli the least she can do is allow me an Apple Fritter or two. In a moment, all the chipper drained from her person and she looked at me and said, Apple Fritters are not allowed in this house. Lets negotiate, I said as calmly as I have ever been in my life. I will allow you to eat broccoli tonight if you allow me an Apple Fritter for my dessert. I wonder if there is a husband living today, that has ever successfully negotiated with his wife. This is how we will negotiate, we will have broccoli tonight without any Apple Fritter. I am only thinking of your health. The way she glared at me I knew negotiations were off the table at this time and in its place was some steaming broccoli. What I am going to do is sneak behind her back and eat two, not one but two, Apple Fritters and I will savor every bite. If only we could act like grownups, come together, voice our differences and strike a compromise. After all, our government works that way. I thought about this and came to a certain conclusion. The Christian life is not really negotiating your preference but rather honoring Christ. Jesus said, For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them (Matthew 18:20 KJV). When self is at the center of my negotiations, Christ is never honored.Rev.

The next sale will be on Oct. 15 and 16. If you have never been there, give it a try. Its interesting to experience the auction and walk through the paddock area to see the many different farms represented and their horses. But dont start bidding on any horses. Pun Alley takes us down the track to do some horsing around.A sure betA NYC cab driver picked up a well-to do oriental businessman at JFK airport. On the trip into the city he told the driver he had flown over from Singapore to back one of his own horses in a race at Belmont. His trainer told him that this was the big one and he was positive the horse would win at a big price. Being an obsessive gambler the cabbie begged the businessman for the horses name. The businessman wrote the name on a note and gave it to the cabbie when he paid the fare. The note read, %*(#.None betterAn anonymous donor left a modest estate to a small convent. Each nun was given $50 to give away as she saw fit. Sister Catherine decided to give her share to the first poor person she saw. This happened to be a man leaning against the telephone pole across the street, and he obviously had known better days. She went out to the man and pressed the $50 into his hands and said, Godspeed, my good man. As she left, the man called out to her, What is your name? Shyly, she replied, Sister Catherine. The following evening, the man returned to the convent and rang the bell. Id like to see Sister Catherine, he said. The nun at the door answered, Im sorry, but I cannot disturb her right now. May I give her a message? Yes, said the man gleefully. Give her this $100 and tell her Godspeed came in second at Belmont.Some racy storiesOne horseplayer to another horseplayer: You said he was a great horse and he sure is. It took 11 other horses to beat him. Some horses are so polite that when they come to a fence, they stop and let you go over first. The horse was so slow it ran faster when it became glue. The tipster said this horse would walk in. It did, but all the others galloped. After the horse ate all of his hay he had a baleful look about him. A racehorse is an animal that can take several thousand people for a ride at the same time. Stop me if youve heard this story of my horse. It is a tale of whoa. All horses have six legs forelegs in front and two in back. There was the luckless guy who ran out of money and continued to bet the horses mentally. In no time, he lost his mind. Some horses are in movies. But they have bit parts. When the horse fell down, he said, Ive fallen and I cant giddy-up. A boy was rushed to hospital after he swallowed several toy horses. Doctors described his condition as stable. She thought it was a real horse, but it was a phony. A gambler was hiding in the shrubbery next to the Some horsin around in Pun Alley this week racetrack. He was hedging his bets. A gambler crossed asparagus with horseradish so he would have some hot tips for the racetrack. A famous horse was named Raspberry Ice because it was a sherbet. One horse said to yet another one, I forgot your mane, but your pace is familiar.Horse senseA woman seeking a divorce charged that her husband thinks only of horse racing. He talks horse racing; he sleeps horse racing and the racetrack is the only place he goes. It is horses, horses, horses all day long and most of the night. He doesnt even know the date of our wedding. That is not true, Your Honor, cried the husband. We were married the day Dark Star won the Kentucky Derby.Hee-hawThis horsemeat scandal just keeps growing. And it isnt happening only in Europe. According to a new report, donkey meat has been found in hamburgers in South Africa. Consumers said when they were eating the burgers they sensed something was wrong, but they couldnt quite pin a tail on it.

Each year teams made up of four people each compete for prizes and bragging rights in our Senior Games. The rules are simple and the games arent too strenuous. Each player must compete in two events of the four total games played. The games are, Bocce Ball; Shuffleboard; Horseshoes and this year for the first time, Wellie Wanging. I will explain that game further on in this article. Registration fee is $10 per team which averages out to $2.50 per player. All you need to do is get your foursome together and then see Geri to register. Theres only room for ten teams so get started now and give yourself time to practice. For those who arent going to actually play in the games, this is always a good time to come out and cheer on your favorites; watch the competition; enjoy free hot dogs and bratwurst and just have fun in the Sun. Now for those of you who are wondering about the rules of Wellie Wanging, let me explain. Players take a green garden boot and using any method they are comfortable with; they throw it as far as possible. The individual tossing the boot the farthest; wins the game. Its a simple sport probably made up by either frustrated gardeners or mothers whose kids tracked mud through the house. Fun in the Sun is always a big hit with a large turnout so join us on November 2 at the sports field behind the clubhouse. Come have a terrific time with some terrific people playing some terrific games.

Joe is from Metro Crime Prevention of Florida and he spoke on several different ways for our members to protect themselves from crime. Innovative inventions in the burglar alarm systems and common sense precautions were just a couple of the areas he covered. One particular point he made that is good for everyone to know is that you should never program your home address into your GPS system. If it is stolen, the thieves know exactly where you live and that can never be a good thing. After his demonstration he was given a hearty applause from the audience; a cup and a Thank you from club President Bill Mahar. Other business discussed was the upcoming Veterans Day program. Our guest speaker will be Al Morrison; resident manager of Ritz House and a veteran of the U.S. Marines. Our Color Guard; Veterans Club Officers and special guest appearance by the Cherrywood Songbirds will highlight the program. Tickets are just $7 for the hot dog and hamburger luncheon that will immediately follow the service. On Dec. 7 our Veterans Club will honor the widows of our group. This will be a special day dedicated to them on the anniversary of the United States entry into World War II. Enthusiasm is building as we kicked off our Bowl-a-thon fund raiser which will take place on Monday, Oct. 28. Corporate sponsors are encouraged to provide gift certificates; coupons or other tax deductible funds or prizes. Anyone wishing to contribute should contact Richard Hurley at 873-7208 or Geri at 237-1675. Our Veterans Club decided to start a fund to raise money for a service dog for a disabled veteran. The cost for such a companion is $2,500 and the Veterans Club started the fund with $200. Anyone in the community who wishes to make a tax deductible donation to this fund is asked to make out their check to Cherrywood Veterans Club and indicate Dog fund in the memo. We hope to start off the New Year by helping a disabled veteran. (Please read the From your Reporter article in this section of the Citizen.) Our next meeting will be held on Nov. 7 at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse. All of our residents are invited and welcome to attend. CERT TeamCommunity Emergency Response Team leader DeWella Markland has stepped down after many years of selfless service. Her commitment and dedicated leadership has been invaluable to the CERT team; to our community and to our neighborhood. We thank her for her service and wish her well. Stepping up to take over is David Siegel, who has served as Assistant Team Leader for these many years. David brings vast experience and training to this position and is anxious for the support of current team members enlisting new people for this vital team. On Oct. 16 at 8:30 a.m., the CERT team will meet in the clubhouse to hear guest speaker Brain Gibson. Brian is the new county director for all the CERT teams in Marion County. Come out to this meeting and learn about the worthwhile work these volunteers do to protect us in times of emergency and natural disasters. Every member of this community is asked to fill out a confidential form that lists emergency contacts; medications; allergies; and other vital information. These confidential forms are available from the office and get turned into the CERT team for use if a member of our community is in distress. Many of us filled out these forms when we moved into Cherrywood but as time goes by phone numbers change; contacts change and our medical history changes. Please make every effort to bring your information up to date as soon as possible. See Geri in the office or contact David at 352-390-3325.

While youre at the show; stop by the Cherrywood Veterans Club table where you can buy raffle tickets for a great gift basket or tickets to win a Bahamas cruise. You can even make a donation to the Service Dog for disabled Veterans fund. All proceeds go to support our veterans charities.Fun in the Sun Games registrationIts time again to register your team for the annual Fun in the Sun Senior Games. Each year teams made up of four people each compete for prizes and bragging rights in our Senior Games. The rules are simple and the games arent too strenuous. Each player must compete in two events of the four total games played. The games are, Bocce Ball; Shuffleboard; Horseshoes and this year for the first time, Wellie Wanging. I will explain that game further on in this article. Registration fee is $10 per team which averages out to $2.50 per player. All you need to do is get your foursome together and then see Geri to register. Theres only room for ten teams so get started now and give yourself time to practice. For those who arent going to actually play in the games, this is always a good time to come out and cheer on your favorites; watch the competition; enjoy free hot dogs and bratwurst and just have fun in the Sun. Now for those of you who are wondering about the rules of Wellie Wanging, let me explain. Players take a green garden boot and using any method they are comfortable with; they throw it as far as possible. The individual tossing the boot the farthest; wins the game. Its a simple sport probably made up by either frustrated gardeners or mothers whose kids tracked mud through the house. Fun in the Sun is always a big hit with a large turnout so join us on November 2 at the sports field behind the clubhouse. Come have a terrific time with some terrific people playing some terrific games. Songbirds to perform Veterans DayThe Cherrywood Songbirds headed by President Aprile Guglielmi and directed by Vince Basile will be featured at this years Veterans Day observance Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. The group has recently reorganized and has an energetic Christmas Season planned. Director Vincenzo Basile is from New York where he starred with the Amato Opera Company and performed with many other famous opera singers. He and his lovely wife Ann have been married 47 years and have two children; Kerry Ann who lives in Florida and Vincent who still lives in New York. Mr. Basile is a U.S. Navy Veteran who served two tours in Vietnam on board the USS Intrepid. He was in the V2 Division which operated the catapults and arresting gears; one of the most dangerous jobs on an aircraft carrier. Pianist Frank Juarbe will be accompanying the group when they perform. Frank is an accomplished musician who, along with his bright and cheerful personality, adds musical excellence to our great singers. Officers for the newly reorganized group in addition to Aprile are; VP Diane DAllessandro; Treasurer, Marylou Selvitello; and Secretary, Ann Bardack.

Joe is from Metro Crime Prevention of Florida and he spoke on several different ways for our members to protect themselves from crime. Innovative inventions in the burglar alarm systems and common sense precautions were just a couple of the areas he covered. One particular point he made that is good for everyone to know is that you should never program your home address into your GPS system. If it is stolen, the thieves know exactly where you live and that can never be a good thing. After his demonstration he was given a hearty applause from the audience; a cup and a Thank you from club President Bill Mahar. Other business discussed was the upcoming Veterans Day program. Our guest speaker will be Al Morrison; resident manager of Ritz House and a veteran of the U.S. Marines. Our Color Guard; Veterans Club Officers and special guest appearance by the Cherrywood Songbirds will highlight the program. Tickets are just $7 for the hot dog and hamburger luncheon that will immediately follow the service. On Dec. 7 our Veterans Club will honor the widows of our group. This will be a special day dedicated to them on the anniversary of the United States entry into World War II. Enthusiasm is building as we kicked off our Bowl-a-thon fund raiser which will take place on Monday, Oct. 28. Corporate sponsors are encouraged to provide gift certificates; coupons or other tax deductible funds or prizes. Anyone wishing to contribute should contact Richard Hurley at 873-7208 or Geri at 237-1675. Our Veterans Club decided to start a fund to raise money for a service dog for a disabled veteran. The cost for such a companion is $2,500 and the Veterans Club started the fund with $200. Anyone in the community who wishes to make a tax deductible donation to this fund is asked to make out their check to Cherrywood Veterans Club and indicate Dog fund in the memo. We hope to start off the New Year by helping a disabled veteran. (Please read the From your Reporter article in this section of the Citizen.) Our next meeting will be held on Nov. 7 at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse. All of our residents are invited and welcome to attend. CERT TeamCommunity Emergency Response Team leader DeWella Markland has stepped down after many years of selfless service. Her commitment and dedicated leadership has been invaluable to the CERT team; to our community and to our neighborhood. We thank her for her service and wish her well. Stepping up to take over is David Siegel, who has served as Assistant Team Leader for these many years. David brings vast experience and training to this position and is anxious for the support of current team members enlisting new people for this vital team. On Oct. 16 at 8:30 a.m., the CERT team will meet in the clubhouse to hear guest speaker Brain Gibson. Brian is the new county director for all the CERT teams in Marion County. Come out to this meeting and learn about the worthwhile work these volunteers do to protect us in times of emergency and natural disasters. Every member of this community is asked to fill out a confidential form that lists emergency contacts; medications; allergies; and other vital information. These confidential forms are available from the office and get turned into the CERT team for use if a member of our community is in distress. Many of us filled out these forms when we moved into Cherrywood but as time goes by phone numbers change; contacts change and our medical history changes. Please make every effort to bring your information up to date as soon as possible. See Geri in the office or contact David at 352-390-3325.

The next sale will be on Oct. 15 and 16. If you have never been there, give it a try. Its interesting to experience the auction and walk through the paddock area to see the many different farms represented and their horses. But dont start bidding on any horses. Pun Alley takes us down the track to do some horsing around.A sure betA NYC cab driver picked up a well-to do oriental businessman at JFK airport. On the trip into the city he told the driver he had flown over from Singapore to back one of his own horses in a race at Belmont. His trainer told him that this was the big one and he was positive the horse would win at a big price. Being an obsessive gambler the cabbie begged the businessman for the horses name. The businessman wrote the name on a note and gave it to the cabbie when he paid the fare. The note read, %*(#.None betterAn anonymous donor left a modest estate to a small convent. Each nun was given $50 to give away as she saw fit. Sister Catherine decided to give her share to the first poor person she saw. This happened to be a man leaning against the telephone pole across the street, and he obviously had known better days. She went out to the man and pressed the $50 into his hands and said, Godspeed, my good man. As she left, the man called out to her, What is your name? Shyly, she replied, Sister Catherine. The following evening, the man returned to the convent and rang the bell. Id like to see Sister Catherine, he said. The nun at the door answered, Im sorry, but I cannot disturb her right now. May I give her a message? Yes, said the man gleefully. Give her this $100 and tell her Godspeed came in second at Belmont.Some racy storiesOne horseplayer to another horseplayer: You said he was a great horse and he sure is. It took 11 other horses to beat him. Some horses are so polite that when they come to a fence, they stop and let you go over first. The horse was so slow it ran faster when it became glue. The tipster said this horse would walk in. It did, but all the others galloped. After the horse ate all of his hay he had a baleful look about him. A racehorse is an animal that can take several thousand people for a ride at the same time. Stop me if youve heard this story of my horse. It is a tale of whoa. All horses have six legs forelegs in front and two in back. There was the luckless guy who ran out of money and continued to bet the horses mentally. In no time, he lost his mind. Some horses are in movies. But they have bit parts. When the horse fell down, he said, Ive fallen and I cant giddy-up. A boy was rushed to hospital after he swallowed several toy horses. Doctors described his condition as stable. She thought it was a real horse, but it was a phony. A gambler was hiding in the shrubbery next to the Some horsin around in Pun Alley this week racetrack. He was hedging his bets. A gambler crossed asparagus with horseradish so he would have some hot tips for the racetrack. A famous horse was named Raspberry Ice because it was a sherbet. One horse said to yet another one, I forgot your mane, but your pace is familiar.Horse senseA woman seeking a divorce charged that her husband thinks only of horse racing. He talks horse racing; he sleeps horse racing and the racetrack is the only place he goes. It is horses, horses, horses all day long and most of the night. He doesnt even know the date of our wedding. That is not true, Your Honor, cried the husband. We were married the day Dark Star won the Kentucky Derby.Hee-hawThis horsemeat scandal just keeps growing. And it isnt happening only in Europe. According to a new report, donkey meat has been found in hamburgers in South Africa. Consumers said when they were eating the burgers they sensed something was wrong, but they couldnt quite pin a tail on it.

On Sunday, Oct. 13, Minister Peter Bunch and wife Penny will be enjoying a well deserved vacation in Myrtle Beach, S.C. at the Gaither Homecoming But I thought you knew I do not like broccoli? Oh, that, she said with another chuckle, I just thought you were joking. Nobody jokes about broccoli, especially me. Then a brilliant idea reverberated between my ears. I thought I could take advantage of this situation and sneak in something forbidden in our kitchen and house for /that matter, a rare delicacy. I will then run to the store and get some fresh Apple Fritters for our dessert. I figured if she wants to put in front of me broccoli the least she can do is allow me an Apple Fritter or two. In a moment, all the chipper drained from her person and she looked at me and said, Apple Fritters are not allowed in this house. Lets negotiate, I said as calmly as I have ever been in my life. I will allow you to eat broccoli tonight if you allow me an Apple Fritter for my dessert. I wonder if there is a husband living today, that has ever successfully negotiated with his wife. This is how we will negotiate, we will have broccoli tonight without any Apple Fritter. I am only thinking of your health. The way she glared at me I knew negotiations were off the table at this time and in its place was some steaming broccoli. What I am going to do is sneak behind her back and eat two, not one but two, Apple Fritters and I will savor every bite. If only we could act like grownups, come together, voice our differences and strike a compromise. After all, our government works that way. I thought about this and came to a certain conclusion. The Christian life is not really negotiating your preference but rather honoring Christ. Jesus said, For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them (Matthew 18:20 KJV). When self is at the center of my negotiations, Christ is never honored.Rev.

From your reporterA very close friend of the Cherrywood Veterans Club made President Bill Mahar aware of a program for providing service dogs to assist disabled veterans. In turn, Bill passed the information on to me and in a few days we will be meeting with the organization that provides these loving and helpful companions. Over the years I have had several experiences with people who have service dogs. Leader Dogs for the Blind has a training facility in Rochester, Michigan, and because that was in my neck of the woods, I got to know a little bit about the fantastic work they do. Also, I have had friends who utilize service dogs not for just overcoming their loss of sight but for other maladies as well. I know that these animals and I use the term animals very loosely, provide confidence; companionship and hope as well as their utilitarian functions. At our last meeting, the Cherrywood Veterans Club generously voted to set aside a special fund to raise the $2,500 needed for each dog. These earmarked funds will go for only one purpose and that is to pay for a trained service dog to assist a disabled vet. The club opened the fund with a $200 donation. I can only hope; plead and beg all of my readers to please make a donation to this fund. A tax deductible donation of any amount can be made to the Cherrywood Veterans Club with the word Dog in the memo section of your check. If you can give $5 or $10 or if you can give $100; anything would be truly appreciated. Checks can be mailed to the Cherrywood Veterans Club; 6253 S.W. 100 Loop; Ocala, Fl 34476. We offer this opportunity to not only individuals, but to other organizations such as the veterans community; service groups; students; businesses or anyone with a desire to help a truly in need veteran. We thank the veterans for their service and sacrifice and thank the community for their care and consideration. If you have a comment or suggestion for the Cherrywood section of your Citizen Newspaper, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I am always happy to hear from you, the reader. Acertain situation has been building in the Parsonage for the last several months. At first, I did not think it too serious but alas, we have reached a terrible impasse. It started a few months ago when I came home, walked into the house and was hit in the face so hard I almost passed out. At the time, I was hoping I would pass out, but no such luck. I think everybody knows what it is like to be hit unexpectedly by something you do not actually expect. I guess that is why it is called unexpectedly. It happened to me and I am not sure I am over it yet. Even though I have been married 42 years, of which most of it has been happily, I did not see this one coming. Just when you think you have your spouse figured out, they do something off the radar. Every husband knows exactly what I am talking about. This makes it hard to buy Christmas and birthday presents. What they liked last year is not what they like this year. I remember buying my wife a watch one year for Christmas of which she was so delighted that for the next four years after I bought her a watch for Christmas. How was I supposed to know she only wanted one watch! I think we hit one of those impasses. Walking into the house, I was hit with the horrific smell of broccoli cooking on the stove. I do not know if you ever smelt such a smell as that but if you are not prepared for it and even if you are prepared for it, it can smack you in the face like you have never been smacked in the face before. When I came to myself and gathered what little composure I could find, I queried the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage who was in the kitchen. What is that awful smell? I dont know, have you taken a shower yet? After being married for 42 years, I know when to respond to a question and when not to. I knew if I responded to this question the way I wanted to respond to this question, the smell of broccoli would be the least of my worries at the time. No, I said gathering a little bit of manliness about me, Something in this house smells dreadful. I smelled it as soon as I walked in the door. Then she chuckled. I hate it when she chuckles. Oh, that must be the wonderful aroma of broccoli cooking on the stove. Isnt it marvelous? Adhering to my rules about questions, I tossed that one aside and opted for another one. Youre not cooking broccoli for supper tonight, are you? I was hoping she would catch my attitude of disdain and disgust in this question. Obviously, for whatever reason, she did not catch the drift. Yes, she said as chipper as I have ever heard her chip, I thought I would surprise you with a wonderful dish of broccoli for supper tonight, to go along with our pork chops. Can you live with a person for so long and not know what they like or do not like? Nobody has to be around me for five minutes before they will understand that broccoli and I have had a feud that has been going on since before the Hatfields and McCoys.Friday, October 11, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com The parsonage kitchen shutdown threat Out to Pastor Rev.

Friday, October 11, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 11, 2013 BY JASON ALDERMAN Special to the CitizenIf youre among the 170 million Americans who receive health insurance through an employer-provided plan, youll probably receive your 2014 open enrollment materials shortly. Although its a pain to wade through all that information, simply opting for your current coverage could be a costly mistake. Heres why: Health insurance has undergone major changes since the 2010 Affordable Care Act was passed, including the elimination of annual and lifetime coverage limits and preexisting conditions exclusions, expanded free preventive care and allowing children up to age 26 to remain on parents plans. In response, many employers have altered their benefit plans. Plus, if your family or income situations have changed since last year, your current plans may no longer be the best match. And, if your employer offers flexible spending accounts and youre not participating, youre leaving a valuable tax break on the table. Heres what to look for when reviewing your benefit options: Carefully compare all costs and features of the different plans offered and note how your existing coverage may be changing next year. Common changes include: Dropped or replaced medical plans. Increased monthly premiums, deductibles and copayment amounts. Revised drug formularies. Favored doctors or hospitals withdrawing from a plans preferred provider network. Changes to the number of allowed visits for specialty care (acupuncture, chiropractic, physical therapy, etc.) If offered, healthcare and dependent care flexible spending accounts (FSAs) can significantly offset the financial impact of medical and dependent care by letting you pay for eligible out-of-pocket expenses on a pre-tax basis; that is, before federal, state and Social Security taxes are deducted from your paycheck. This reduces your taxable income and therefore, your taxes. You can use a healthcare FSA to pay for IRS-allowed medical expenses not covered by your medical, dental or vision plans. Check IRS Publication 502 for allowable expenses. Dependent care FSAs let you use pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible expenses related to care for your child, spouse, parent or other dependent incapable of self-care. Heres how FSAs work: Say you earn $42,000 a year. If you contribute $1,000 to a health care FSA and $3,000 for dependent care, your taxable income would be reduced to $38,000. Your resulting net income, after taxes, would be roughly $1,600 more than if you had paid for those expenses on an after-tax basis. Remember these FSA restrictions: Employee contributions are limited to $2,500 a year for health care FSAs and $5,000 for dependent care. Health care and dependent care contributions are not interchangeable. Estimate planned expenses carefully because you must forfeit unused account balances. Some employers offer a grace period of up to 2 months after the end of the plan year to incur expenses, When I was a young lad growing up in northern New Jersey, my dad took the train to work every day. Hed ride to Weehawken, then catch the ferry for the city. Using the reverse route every late afternoon, he always wanted something to do than just sit there on the return trip. Therefore, he bought a couple of newspapers. He would get home and plop the New York Daily News and New York Journal-American on the table. Also, by that time, the Bergen Evening Record out of Hackensack, N.J., would have arrived. I learned at a very young age to read newspapers. I enjoyed the sports in the News and JournalAmerican, but mostly I like leafing through the Record, because it gave me news about the area in which I lived. Even at a tender age, I instinctively knew the importance of that. I still do. This is the 73rd annual National Newspaper Week, which is older than I am (but not by too much). It was designed to make people aware of the advantages of newspapers, even before the proliferation of television, and generations before the Internet. Now more than ever, its important to honor that tradition and the constructive role newspapers play in the life of a community. Technology and the world are changing these days at a feverish pace. Information is available at our fingertips in an instant. The opportunities for communication, discussion and opinion have never been greater. Newspapers play an important role in distilling this great cacophony of information and providing sound and accurate context. We help make sense of it all. We provide readers with news and information they need to live informed and active lives. We offer a list of activities that will keep our readers active and give them the ability to take part in events that can make their stay in Ocala enjoyable. If youre not sure of that, take a look at our Happenings or Community Calendar. The items are arranged by date, so you can refer to the paper all week and find something to do. We offer businesses an opportunity to market their goods and services. We allow people to find places to live, places to work, places to eat, places to get medical help and a place to sell that couch thats been in the basement. Newspapers consistently and reliably provide the most up-todate, accurate and important news. And our audiences recognize this, rating newspapers as the most trusted of all media forms in a recent Nielsen study. While 56 percent say they trust newspapers, 52 percent trust local television and only 37 percent trust social media. In an area such as this, where social media is not as prolific as in other places, we feel those percentages are even higher here in favor of newspapers. Newspapers have always been the cornerstone of our society, and that did not change with the digital revolution. Ever since the Philadelphia Evening Post first published the Declaration of Independence, our newspapers have continued to unite us as communities. The Internet has changed the reading habits of some people, but many still prefer the actual print copy of the newspaper. They realize there are some things that are hard to find in cyberspace, but you can easily open the paper to the puzzle page, and find challenges there, to the opinion page, which you have the right to agree with or not, to the classified ads, to say nothing of some of the other local advertising, some of it in bright color. In our case, the newspaper can sit on your coffee table for a week, and still be relevant, and thats a benefit to advertisers. This, of course, is in addition to the regular news provided about the communities in which you live by dedicated columnists who gather and write the information. So the next time someone tells you newspapers are dying, youd be honest to tell them, Not here. Your community weekly newspaper is alive and well. And we thank you for doing what you are doing right now reading the news. That can help make you an important part of the area in which you live.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

If you didnt take advantage of the town hall meetings held recently at Fire Station 20 near U.S. 27 and this past Tuesday at the Freedom Public Library, then you missed a chance to see grassroots government in action. County commissioners gathered to give reports on government and to hear the concerns of the public, and took notes as people talked about perceived problems they have encountered. Except for one persons rant against Hispanics, the meeting was civil and, at times, featured some humor. That one man said he had gone up to a work crew on the side of the road and found they couldnt speak English. He hinted that they were undocumented aliens and that the county should hire local workers. Commission Chairman Kathy Bryant explained, twice, that any contractor doing business with the county had to use the E-Verify system, which makes sure all the workers are legitimate. Just because they speak Spanish doesnt mean theyre illegal, Bryant said. Commissioners heard complaints about land use. One man spoke out against the commercial zoning in the area of the Freedom Library, when the land was obviously being used for farming. Bare land ought to be treated as bare land, he said. We have to agree with him that the entrance to the library parking lot, which used to be straightforward and simple, now involves thinking, How do I get out of here? It isnt always easy. Another speaker brought up the possible outsourcing of jobs, and Bryant said she would be glad to meet with her and explain the system and how it saves the county money. The same lady spoke of the lack of buses on State Road 200. She also said she would not attend the Fine Arts Festival, which had been moved downtown from the McPherson complex, because of the lack of bus transportation. I fear for the Fine Arts Festival, she said. As Bryant pointed out, though, the Transportation Planning Organization has done studies about buses on the Corridor and found that it is not feasible. We recently tried to attend an event at Citizens Circle in downtown Ocala, the new venue at City Hall, but finally had to leave when we could not find a parking space within a decent walking distance of the venue. Frankly, we have to agree with this lady that the city has not done itself any favors by moving events away from the square, which is now completed and reopened. But the county commissioners did do themselves, and the residents, a favor by holding these meetings. We hope that these will become a regular feature on the calendar for our governing officials.

Volunteer recognitionAt the Oct. 1 Tuesday Social, Board Secretary Connie Rowe presented Terry Callarman with the Marion Landing Volunteer Recognition Award. Connie introduced our recipient as follows: This month we are honoring a resident who moved here with his wife in May 2009. Hes what I consider one of the many behind the scenes volunteers for Marion Landing. In 2011, he was a member of the former Social & Recreation Committee. Hes also a Patrol volunteer and drives multiple shifts throughout the year. There are many other times when hes on the road for Marion Landing, but hes not behind the wheel of the Sheriffs Department Prius. At least once a month over the past 4 years, you may have seen him when youve been shopping at various stores in Ocala. If his cart was piled high, he probably wasnt buying those large quantities for home. He was purchasing all the necessary kitchen supplies and equipment from different vendors for functions held in our Lifestyle Center. If you havent guessed who our Volunteer Recognition recipient is yet, Im sure you will recognize him by one his trademarksa red and white checkered hat. It is my pleasure to present the Volunteer Recognition Award to Terry Callarman. Terrys engraved plaque will join the more than 162 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents who are nominated for the award by their peers, and nominations of residents not previously recognized are needed.

Sixty couples received invitations to attend the celebration which will include a lovely catered dinner, music for dancing and listening pleasure, and commemorative photos, which will be taken at the event for the participating honorees. Tickets will be available to the honorees up until Tuesday, Oct. 15. A waiting list is being compiled of other residents wishing to attend the festivities, and they will be contacted when the number of tickets available is determined. These tickets can be purchased at the Oct. 22 Tuesday Social or through the Activities Office. Committee chair, Nancy Rife, suggests that tickets be purchased early as they are going fast.Games Party a successThe Sunshine Games Party brought more than 100 residents down to the Lifestyle Center on Wednesday, Sept. 25, for an afternoon of friendship, fun, and for a good cause. It began with lunch, and then participants broke into pre-determined groups to play cards and games such as Hand and Foot, Bridge and Bunko, to name a few. The fundraiser, chaired by Lois Norris and co-chaired by Donna Schmidt and Janice Wood, was a great success. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Sunshine Committee, whose mission is to respond to the needs of the Marion Landing Community at times of illness, hospitalization, and death. It also recognizes other milestones of residents such as 60th and 65th anniversaries. It takes a lot of time and energy from a lot of people to put on this type of event, from setup to decorating, to food prep and cleanup. These volunteers are: Martha Nierenberg, Joan Buzzek, Rachel Glenn, Nancy Rife, Gloria Wilberg, Mary Ann Hall, Gordon Herrick, Paula Adwell, Lorraine and Dave Rusch, Ginny and Jim Dillon, Evelyn Olsen, Lorraine De Mauex, Maureen Hake, Joan and Art Dopler, John and Noreen Metzger, Ginger Abbott, Dot Toneske, Leta Simmons, Charlie Mock, Merry Anne Krell and Luis Rios. The community appreciates their dedication and is what makes Marion Landing a wonderful place to live.

Friday, October 11, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, October 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A bid for you to step in and take over an incomplete project could prove to be an excellent learning experience that you can take with you when a new opportunity opens up. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its a good time for socializing, both with family and with friends. Your aspects also favor developing new relationships, any or all of which might become especially meaningful. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your success in handling a recent difficult situation prompts a request to handle another workplace problem. But this is one you should accept only if you get all of the relevant facts. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) New information about a past decision raises some unsettling questions from an old friend. Be prepared to explain your actions fully and, if necessary, to make adjustments. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is not a good time to share personal secrets, even with someone youve known for a long while. What you dont reveal now wont come back to haunt you later. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Pushing yourself to meet a project deadline is admirable. But be careful not to leave out important details in your rush to complete your work and send it off. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Watch that you dont take on more than you can handle when offering to help someone with a personal problem. There might be hidden factors you werent told about. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) That major move youve been considering could come sooner than you expected. Make sure youll be ready with the facts you need when decision time arrives. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Languishing relationships can benefit from a break in routine. Get out of the rut and do something new and maybe more than a little unpredictable this weekend. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Although you dont think of yourself as a role model, your ability to make a tough decision at this time sets an example for others, who admire your courage. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You need to move any remaining obstacles out of your way before you can take on a new challenge. Seek advice from close, trusted friends and associates. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A career change appears increasingly likely to happen during the next several weeks. Its a good idea to start now to prepare, so you can be ready to make the move when the time comes. 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

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 CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 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.

The pantry is open Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and distributes food and hygiene items to qualifying families in need who fall below the federal poverty guidelines.

Outside of open enrollment, you can only make mid-year FSA changes after a major life or family status change (marriage, divorce, death of a spouse, birth or adoption, etc.) If one occurs mid-year, re-jigger your FSAs accordingly for maximum savings. You must re-enroll in FSAs each year amounts dont carry over from year to year. Compare your employers plans alongside those offered by your spouses employer, particularly when deciding where to insure your children. Also remember that if you marry, divorce, or gain or lose dependents, it could impact the type and cost of your coverage options. Its worth spending a few minutes to review your benefit coverage options for next year, especially when you consider the potential financial consequences.Jason Alderman directs Visas financial education programs.

With the rejection, the Senate effectively ensured the partial federal shutdown that began at midnight on Oct. 1 continued. The day before, the Senate rejected a nearly-identical amendment to the continuing appropriations resolution.

The House decided to take up mini-CRs to fund various parts of the government like military pay and veterans programs. This particular mini-CR, passed by the House Republicans with the help of 35 Democrats, would fund veterans programs including disability payments, education benefits and home loans at current levels until December 15. The bill would also fund the Veterans Benefits Administration at the annualized rate of $2.5 billion to process disability claims.Republican Rich Nugent voted YES Republican Ted Yoho voted YESWomens and Childrens Nutrition Funds Continuing Resolution Vote Passed (244164, 23 Not Voting) On Friday, the House passed another mini-CR to fund the nutrition programs for women, infants and children (WIC). The bill would fund the special supplemental nutrition program until December 15 at post-sequester fiscal 2013 levels. The Senate is extremely unlikely to consider any of the House mini-CRs.Republican Rich Nugent voted YES Republican Ted Yoho voted YESCompiled by MegaVote.

Friday, October 11, 2013 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 2~ Friday, October 11, 2013 www.smcitizen.com THE QUEST By Nelson DeMille Set in 1975 in war-torn Ethiopia, DeMilles rewrite of his first novel assembles a trio of journalists who come to believe a dying priests story that the Holy Grail is hidden deep in the countrys jungle. The barely likeable journalists are American Frank Purcell, elderly Brit Henry Mercado and gorgeous young Swiss photographer Vivian Smith. Blurbs touting this book call it thrilling and romantic. But the mnage a trois is more unsavory than romantic as desirable Vivian bestows her favors alternately on both men. Early in the book the three find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time and barely escape their tormenter with their lives. Once again safely ensconced in the Addis Ababa Hilton hotel and later in Rome, the action halts as the characters meet in bar after bar and sometimes in a library to discuss plans for resuming their search for the holy relic. For a hundred pages or more the book slowly slogs forward with endless talk and more history about the Holy Grail than is likely to sustain the readers attention. Once returned to Ethiopia the action picks up again with a scary plane ride and an unexpected reunion with the sadistic Marxist who previously imprisoned them. About that man Purcell says, Men like that are taking over the worldwhat the hell is going on? The violence the author describes is an apt history lesson for todays atrocities on Coptic Christians in Egypt and Syria. In interviews DeMille says that when he first wrote the book his mind was still in the jungles of Vietnam even though hed been out of the Army for five years. This is a stand-alone novel without the quick-witted characters John Corey and Kay Mayfield that readers have come to love. That alone will disappoint some. But the greatest flaw here is that it takes so long for the search for the Holy Grail to materialize that its hard to still care anymore. Recommended only for loyal DeMille fans. Ethiopian search for the Holy Grail Bookmark Pat Wellington Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com UKC (United Kennel Club) Rally Signs ClassRally is a new, fun dog sport where the dog and handler work together as a team. The team will progress through a numbered course of stations with signs, each sign describing the exercise to be performed at that station. Unlike traditional Obedience, Rally encourages the handler to talk to his dog and offer praise and encouragement throughout the course. If you are new to the sport of Rally or if you want to learn or review the UKC Rally signs, a course in UKC Rally will be offered at MADTA (Southeastern Livestock Pavilion) beginning Oct. 29. The course will be taught by recognized UKC Rally judges. There will be a minimum of four classes, class size limited. Rally is fun for everyone and builds the bond between a handler and his dog. Come visit us and see for yourself. Try the class beginning in October and decide if you would like to enter the UKC Rally Trials coming in November.

Not shown is Commissioner David Moore. BY JIM CLARK EditorResidents from the Southwest area gathered for a town hall meeting with county commissioners on Tuesday evening at Freedom Public Library. Commission Chairman Kathy Bryant gave a summary of the countys recent actions, starting with an explanation of the recently passed budget. She noted how the county has been able to hold the line on the millage rate, although home values have dropped 38 percent in recent years, forcing cuts in the budget. She also spoke about economic development, saying that in January 2010, the jobless rate was 14.3 percent, and that in August of this year it was just under 8 percent. She spoke of recent promises of new companies, particularly FedEx Ground, moving into the area. In her district, in which the meeting was held, she spoke of the completion of the 42nd Street flyover, and the traffic light being installed at 103rd Street Road and 49th Avenue. She spoke of the improvements to Liberty Park and the completion of the Marion Oaks waterfall. Commissioner Stan McClain said the federal government shutdown hasnt affected county operations so far. Basically, we dont know its shut down, he said. He said there would be some effect eventually, and also commented on some of the changes taking place because of the shutdown. The Ocala National Forest is shut down, he said, but Im not sure how you shut down a forest. Other commissioners spoke very briefly. One resident asked Lt. Dennis Joiner, commander of the Southwest District Sheriffs Office, about cameras mounted on traffic lights at various intersections. Joiner explained that those are motion sensors, replacing the panels that used to be installed under the streets. Dont worry, big brother isnt watching you, he said. Commissioners meet the public BY JIM CLARK EditorThe location of the production office of the South Marion Citizenand West Marion Messengeris going to change, our parent company, Citrus Publishing Inc. of Crystal River, has announced. Effective Oct. 25, the Citizen and Messenger office on State Road 200 will close. Its an economic decision with some of the functions being moved to the Riverland News office at 20441 E. Pennsylvania Ave. in Dunnellon. Our company owns the building in Dunnellon, so the move will eliminate the need to pay rent for the current office in Kingsland Plaza at 8810 State Road 200. Staff members will be assigned to other locations, but will still be available by e-mail and telephone. Coverage of the news on the Corridor will continue as usual There will be a separate telephone number for news content which will be published shortly, but 352-854-3986 will remain in effect for all other departments, including advertising and delivery.
