Friday, October 18, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 18, 2013 BY PETER J. THOMAS AND PETER FERRARA Special to the MessengerIf Obamacare is so good, why was Congress crying to President Obama for an illegal exemption, which he freely granted? When Congress passed Obamacare in 2010, it stated that Congress and its staff would be subject to it the same as everyone else. That is only fair that they should live under the same rules that they imposed on everyone else. But Obamacare does not go into effect until next year. And as that fateful moment approached, panic spread across the halls of Congress, as it has for much of America, as the realization dawned as to what that would mean for them. Obamacare provides that those buying health insurance on the Exchanges cannot receive subsidies from their employers to help pay for it. They can only receive instead the taxpayer financed Obamacare subsidies to help pay for the highly expensive health insurance Obamacare requires. But that Obamacare health insurance welfare is mostly focused on low and moderate income families, though those making close to $100,000 a year can still receive some Obamacare welfare. The problem in Congress is that the Members and even some of their staffers make $174,000 a year, more than three times the national average. For anyone in the Exchanges making that much, there will be no taxpayer subsidies under Obamacare. They will be forced to pay the full cost of the highly expensive health insurance, with all of the costly requirements Obama and his Democrats have imposed. For many people, the full cost of that insurance will be double or more current market rates. In the Obamacare Exchanges, all of that will be paid for by the workers themselves, or by the taxpayers. That full cost of the Obamacare insurance will cost Congress and their staffs, and their families, roughly $5,000 to $11,000 a year. But Washington Insiders take care of their own. Congress and their staffs, and federal employees generally, have enjoyed their own special health insurance deal, the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program (FEHBP), financed mostly by the taxpayers. It is a good deal for Congress and federal employees, with each choosing among a wide range of different health insurance plans, free of Obamacare. As the weeping and wailing in the halls of Congress reached the ears of the Obama Administration, not to worry came the reply. During the August recess, when the rest of America was out enjoying the last rites of summer, President Obama quietly ordered the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to rule that the generous, taxpayer financed, health insurance subsidies of the FEHBP program would also apply to any federal employees, including Congress and their staffs, on the Obamacare Exchanges. This OPM ruling is flatly contrary to the express language of the Obamacare law, and is consequently illegal. As Senator David Vitter (R-LA) has explained, The Obamacare statute states very clearly that all members of Congress and their staffs are to procure their health insurance through the Obamacare Exchanges. Just as clearly, it does not provide for government support of their present coverage under the separate Federal Health Benefits Plan to continue to on the Exchanges. In fact, Section 1512 of the Statute says clearly that employees going on the Exchanges lose their previous employer subsidies. Thats why this special rule for Congress is illegal. But Senator Vitter has introduced legislation to reverse Obamas illegal OPM ruling, and apply the Obamacare law as written and enacted, removing Congresss special exemption. His bill requires all Members of Congress, and their staffs, and the President, and the Vice-President, and all political appointees of the Obama Administration, to comply with all of the requirements of Obamacare that they have imposed on everyone else. Normally, I leave the comments on Washington, D.C., affairs to those who cover that area in their usual course of events. We see constant writings of all types from people telling the government what to do, what not to do, attacking Congress, attacking the president, etc., and they have the right to express their opinion. But keep in mind that usually they have no more knowledge of events than any of us. There was one statement last week, though, that really got me thinking, and I want to share my thoughts. As I write this Monday morning, nothing has been settled concerning the shutdown and debt ceiling, so please bear that in mind if, by now, an agreement has been reached. I wish I could remember who said it, but there was a comment last week about government workers. This particular statement was about the Environmental Protection Agency, and the fact that only 7 percent of its workers were on the job. The other 93 percent were deemed non-essential and were furloughed. The commentator then added a very good question: If the 93 percent are non-essential now, why arent they non-essential all the time? In other words, do these 93 percent really need to be employed by the federal government? That statement could be applied to almost any government agency, not just the EPA. Why doesnt non-essential mean non-essential every day? Most people would not deny that the federal government is a bloated bureaucracy. So maybe this partial shutdown is a good thing. Its revealing to us how many people really arent needed in Washington and across the country. To be sure, there are some government workers furloughed that we want to see return. The people who run the parks and monuments, for instance, or the people who work as food inspectors, or the locally-based health agencies that help people across the country, would probably be on that list. But these people work directly for the public. Its the bureaucrats in D.C. who are non-essential in the operations of government. Some Congressional workers have been furloughed. Yet, Congress keeps right on working as it usually does (I know, thats not necessarily a good thing). Do they really need to bring back those furloughed aides, especially in Washington. On the other hand, the aides who work the local offices, such as those for Rich Nugent here in Ocala, should be able to keep working, because they work directly with the people. Im sorry for the furloughed workers who are without income at the moment thats a terrible strain in these economic times. But thats the problem when you work for the government. A new administration, a new Congress, etc., could completely change the makeup of the federal workforce. Its a chance workers take when they sign up for government jobs. Hopefully when funding is restored, Congress and the president will force agencies to take a look at their essential personnel and determine who needs to stay and who needs to go. Then again, in a few months, this will all be forgotten and everything will be back to normal for Washington, D.C.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Analysts were watching Tuesdays Ocala city election to see if the voters were sending a message. After all, it was one of the first elections anywhere since the government partial shutdown began. But it was hard to get a feel for what the voters said except for one instance. A city charter amendment that would have eliminated runoffs in certain special elections was defeated. A group called Let the People Vote had lobbied long and hard to reject this amendment, and evidently the message got through. The voters responded by telling city officials not to mess with their right to vote. This should send a clear message to all governments in the area, if not in the nation. Under the guise of saving money, dont deprive us of our chance to properly elect candidates. For a couple of weeks now, there seems to have been an anti-incumbent sentiment growing in the U.S., mainly aimed at Congress. At the local level, the sentiment may have applied to one close race, but in the other there was no doubt that the incumbent was the popular choice. Brent Malever defeated Suzy Heinbockel for the District 1 City Council seat, ousting the incumbent by just 410 votes. But in the District 3 race, incumbent Jay Musleh easily coasted over political newcomer Aaron Fiehn by 1,859 votes. He got 78 percent of the vote. Other charter results were mixed, but most of the amendments were just paperwork to clear up some conflicting language. Voters passed a pair and defeated a pair, with no apparent pattern. One disturbing figure, as usual, was the low turnout. Only 10 percent of registered voters turned out to the polls, a typical city election figure. It remains a mystery to us why cities continuously hold elections on off dates. The standard Election Day in November is observed for county, state and national elections why not for cities, too, When only 10 percent of the voters are deciding the fate of city government, it means that the other 90 percent really have no complaints if they dont like the way things are going. If some of these voters moved to a country where the right to vote wasnt granted, they would be among the first to howl about liberty. But here, they dont seem to care. So ends the election season for most in this area. Now we have 2014 to look forward to, when two county commissioners and various state legislators and Congressmen are up for re-election. It should make for an interesting campaign year. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY No clear message from Ocala voters Is non-essential really non-essential? Congress gets special Obamacare exemption READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor PLEASESEECONGRESS, PAGE9 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Lies are winningThe lies are winning. The House of Representatives right to grant or withhold money is a Constitutional right. This means they have a right to decide whether or not they want to spend money on a particular government activity. The House voted enough money to cover everything except Obamacare. The government workers who were laid off are not idle because they did not vote enough to pay them The Senate chose not to authorize the money spent because it did not include Obamacare. You cannot blame other people for not giving you everything you want. And it is a fraud to blame them when you refuse the money. Obama keeps claiming that it is some new outrage for those in control of the money to try to change government policy by granting or withholding money.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) responded by calling Vitter an anarchist playing really juvenile political games for insisting that Congress and Obama follow the law, and the same rules as everyone else. But the public overwhelming disagrees with Reid. A poll sponsored by Independent Womens Voice found that 93 percent of likely voters, including 88 percent of Democrats, oppose the Congressional exemption from Obamacare. In the continuing battle over the CR, House Republicans have tried to repeal the special Obamacare exemption for Congress, but Sen. Harry Reid and his troops have so far rejected the measure. With the American public furious at how the Washington elites take care of themselves, the issue isnt going away any time soon. If the Republicans were smart, they would attach Senator Vitters bill to every piece of legislation passed by the House. As the pressure continues to build across the country, at some point the guardians of privilege will be forced to give up their subsidy, and learn how it feels to be an ordinary American living under the Obamacare monster they created.

Friday, October 18, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, October 18, 2013 www.smcitizen.com CONGRESSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 That is a bald-faced lie. Check your history. Perhaps the biggest lie is that the government will not be able to pay what it owes on the national debt, creating a danger of default. Tax money keeps coming into the Treasury during the shutdown and it vastly exceeds the interest that has to be paid on the debt. If they dont lift the debt ceiling it only means that government is not allowed to run up new debt. Just like what you and I do when we run out of money at the end of the month! John A. Terry, OcalaFriends of the Library weekOctober 20-26 is the seventh annual celebration of National Friends of the Library week. What a perfect opportunity to acknowledge the Friends of Freedom Public Library for contributing their time and expertise, significantly enhancing our library services. Our Friends organization began in the year 2000 when Freedom Public Library was built. Over the course of these 13 years we have covered the costs of childrens programming, special collections, equipment and miscellaneous needs not included in the county budget. Freedom Public Library is a source of pride for our community. Our Friends group is a source of pride as well, and I am honored to serve as president. We will be available in the library lobby every day this week between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to meet patrons, answer questions about Friends and provide applications for anyone interested in joining us. We especially need volunteers to help with sorting and shelving donated books, and transporting them to the storage locker. Thank you for your time and attention. Carol (Casey) Edkins, President Friends of Freedom Public LibraryCapitol Hill shenanigansIn light of the shenanigans currently playing out on Capitol Hill, I feel compelled to air some of my thoughts. I submit that the government of the people, by the people, for the people, affectionately so referenced by President Lincoln, no longer exists in these United States. Instead, for decades, we have had a Congress made up of a bunch of smug, unprincipled, spineless puppets that jerk and jump as their strings are yanked by their owners. Remember, we put them in office, and we have the power to boot them out. Let us exercise that power on Election Day and send home all incumbents to find an honest job in the private sector they helped gradually decimate during their terms in office. Karl Barlay, Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 This past week I had to go to the mall. I know, I should know better but I thought I could sneak in, get what I needed and sneak out again. So much for my thoughts. I wanted to purchase several tie chains for my neckties and searched every jewelry store and nobody had them. Finally, I ordered three online, which would be shipped free, (which always gets my attention) to the nearest store, which happened to be in the mall. I do not like the mall and choose not to go there if I can help it. When in the mall I am usually very nervous and get confused and do not know which way I am going. Once I get in, I am not quite sure how to get out again. Everything seems to be contrived to confuse a person like myself. Looking down at the ground while walking I became rather confused and I happen to turn into an open door. My mall savvy is not sophisticated in the lease. The door I turned into happened to be for the store Victorias Secret. I do not know who Victoria is, I did not know what the store was all about but when I got in the store I discovered Victorias Secret much to my great embarrassment. That is exactly the reason I do not like going into the malls. They have places like this that a gentleman, such as Yours Truly, should never enter. I am not sure how I got out of that store, all I can remember was a great deal of hilarious laughter thrown in my direction from inside. I just hope they did not recognize me. They probably did not, because I had all my clothes on. It has been a long time since that incident and now I had to go and pick up my order. I put together a plan to sneak in very quietly, pick up my order and tiptoe out as quietly as I came in. You know what they say about welllaid plans! Whether mine was well laid or not, it blew up in my face. I did slip into the mall and found the store where my order was. I picked them up and quietly turned around and Is it a fragrance or a stench? Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 On this day in 1867 the United States flag was raised as the U.S. took possession of Alaska from Russia, following the Senates approval of the purchase on Aug. 1, 1867. Years later on Jan. 3, 1959, Alaska became the 49th. state. Todays Pun Alley presents some cool humor that hopefully doesnt leave you cold.Ancient historyTen thousand years ago, the first humans came to North America. They crossed from Russia to Alaska. Actually, they hadnt intended to do this. But they got lost and couldnt get their Berings Strait.StatehoodIn Congress when Alaska was pushing to become a state, a representative from Texas objected on the ground that Texas would no longer be the largest state. A representative from Alaska replied, Well, if you like, we can split in two and make Texas the 3rd largest state. When Alaska was admitted to the Union, Gov. Price Daniels of Texas said, Just wait until all that snow and ice melts. Then theyll find out which is the biggest state.Ice fishingGeorge and Tom were sitting out on a lake all day ice fishing. George had no luck at all and Tom was pulling fish after fish out of his hole in the ice. George finally asked Tom what his secret was. Mu mupu meep ma mrrms mrrm Tom replied. Gee, Tom, what was that? Mu mupu meep ma mrrms mrrm. Good grief Tom, still cant understand what you are saying. Tom spit something into his hand and replied very clearly, I said, You gotta keep the worms warm.Cold receptionAfter fishing all day George went to his local saloon and drank all evening. As he went to leave, the bartender said to him, You owe me quite a bit on your tab. Sorry, said George, Im flat broke this week. Thats okay, the bartender replied. Ill just write your name and the amount you owe me right here on the wall. But, George said, I dont want any of my friends to see that. They wont, said the bartender. Ill just hang your parka over it until its paid.Alaskan FlakesA city passed a law outlawing all dogs. It became known as Dogless Fairbanks. An ig is an igloo without a loo. Penguins bring babies instead of the stork. People put things in the refrigerator to keep them warm. You get cold cream from cows.Bear signsThere are lots of bears in Alaska. Wise hikers wear little bells while on the trail, and constantly keep an eye out for bear droppings. You can easily tell which droppings are bear droppings because they are the ones with little bells in them.Cold weather alertJohn, a new resident in Alaska, heard a radio advisory stating that anyone traveling in winter conditions should take a shovel, blankets or sleeping bag; extra clothing, including scarf, hat and gloves; 24 hour supply of food; 5 pounds of rock salt; flashlight with spare batteries; road flares and reflective triangles; tow rope, a five-gallon can of gas, first aid kit and jumper cables. He looked like a complete idiot the first time he got on the bus.Stormy weatherAn Eskimo was out fishing in his kayak when a storm came up. He wrapped up in his walrus robe as best he could, but soon realized he was going to freeze unless he quickly did something. In desperation, he tore some of the ribs out of his kayak and built a small fire in the bottom of the boat to warm himself. Of course the fire burned a hole in the bottom of the kayak, it sank and the Eskimo drowned. This once again proves, You cant have your kayak and heat it, too.Blond moose huntingTwo blond men were moose hunting all day when they finally shot a moose. They started dragging it out of the bush but were having a hard time. Finally a fellow hunter came along and said, Hey, you know if you drag the moose the other way with the grain of the fur it will be a lot easier. The two hunters said Hey, good idea! So they started dragging it the other way. About two hours later one blond looked at the other and said, Hey, this was a good idea, it is easier this way. The other blond said, Yeah, but we keep getting further away from the truck. Alaska has its own Pun Alley, and its cold Pun Alley Dick Frank 000FR3Y FLOORS & WINDOWS 6715 SW Hwy. 200 (located 5 mi.

Friday, October 18, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, October 18, 2013 www.smcitizen.com started for the door. How I got turned around is any mans guess. Actually, I think it turned around too many times. For the next 15 minutes, I tried to find the way I came in so I could go out. The trouble started when I hesitated. I stopped to try to get my bearings and in stopping a young woman approached me. How do you do today, sir, she said most cheerfully. I nodded and tried to get away as graciously as possible. She would have none of it. And how do you smell today, sir? Had I been in my right sense of mind I would have told her I smelled with my nose. Being in a confused state of affairs, I had no quick come back for her. It was then that she introduced me to her product. I must confess I am not up-to-date with all of the body lotions and perfumes that are available today. I shave in the morning, splash some aftershave on my face, rub some deodorant under my armpits and that is as far as I go. This young woman took me for a potential customer of her body lotions and ointments and perfumes. I suppose many people are concerned with how they smell. I am not one of them. My basic philosophy along this line is simply, if I cannot stand my own smell, I take a shower. I know when it is time to take a shower when I can smell myself. She wanted to introduce me to some body lotions and ointments and perfumes that would make me smell alluring to anybody I met during the day. Personally, I do not have a Bucket List but if I did this would not be one of the items on it. Trying to be polite, I informed the young woman I was late for an appointment and needed to get on right away. Oh, she said very cheerfully, this will not take long at all. With that said, and before I could process what she said, she began rubbing my face with body ointment or lotion of some sort. I froze and for a few moments, I could not even move. Even the little grey cells upstairs were shocked into a rare state of stillness. Now, you smell wonderful. It was at that time I retired with honor my gentlemanly manners and started running as fast as I could run without drawing too much attention to myself. I smelled that fragrance for three days in spite of the fact that I took 17 showers in the meantime. Sometimes our focus is always on the outside. I like what Jesus said, Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess (Matthew 23:25). It does not matter how good I smell on the outside if there is stench on the inside. I want to focus on my inside and make it as fresh as possible. That is the fragrance God smells.Rev. James L.

PASTORCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 In Judaism, a wedding is a very joyous event and to make joyous the bride and groom is a mitzvah (commandment) of the highest regard. The Sabbath is also a very important day of ritual and worship in the Jewish faith. Combine the two concepts and you come up with something called a Brides Sabbath. The concept of a Shabbat, Sabbath, honoring a bride is a new custom in Judaism. In traditional Ashkenazi circles, the bride and groom do not see each other during the week before the wedding. In order to calm the bride and make her feel joyous on the Shabbat before her wedding, the brides female friends throw her a kind of religious bachelorette party usually towards the evening meal of the Sabbath, notably, Saturday eve. Though there are no set rules or guidelines, the gathering may include divrei Torah, words of Torah, and ,of course, words of wisdom from the attendees on marriage, children and their best wishes for a long and happy life together. The idea of a making Shabbat special for a bride has a mystical connection. The Kabbalists of old compared Shabbat to a bride. In a beautiful hymn sung in almost every synagogue on Shabbat, the Sabbath is compared to a bride. L cha Dodi even has a stanza where traditionally the congregants stand and face the back of the synagogue to welcome the Shabbat bride. This wondrous symbolism of holiness and beauty is a fitting metaphor for the most sacred day of the week. In Jewish legend, there is a story of how the seventh day complained to God that she did not have a mate where as all the other days of the week had pairs. It is said that the Almighty promised the seventh day, that is the Sabbath, that the People of Israel would be her mate. Thus the Jewish people were wedded to the Sabbath in a holy union as a bride and groom are when they stand under the wedding canopy. To this day, the observance of the Sabbath is an important ritual in Judaism. Even in secular parts of modern Israel, sitting down for a meal on Shabbat eve is a cultural act which many Israelis find satisfying. It also affords them time with their families and friends after a hectic week of activity. In America, the observance of Shabbat ranges from the very traditional to the most liberal and everything in between. There are those who will not travel on Shabbat and even take out the electric bulb in the fridge so as not to create a spark (electricity) which is forbidden as fire is not to be kindled on the Shabbat. Still others will relax and listen to music or read a book or take a A special Sabbath for the bride Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE11 Sunday, Oct. 27 Chamber Music Society concertThe Marion Chamber Music Society is opening its 2013-2014 concert season with Motets, Madrigals and Medieval Music featuring The Florida Schola Cantorum, a group of singers from Gainesville led by Dr. Ed Schaefer dedicated to music of the Renaissance and Middle Ages.

Friday, October 18, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, October 18, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A colleague might offer to open a door for you professionally. But before you walk through it, be sure this favor isnt attached to an obligation you might find difficult to discharge. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your creativity, your persistence and your reliability could lead to a major career shift. Be sure to use that other Taurean trait, your practicality, when discussing what the job offers. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A changing situation might require some adjustments you might not have been prepared to make. However, flexibility in this matter could be the best course to follow at this time. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Youre in a period of fluctuating moods, which is not unusual for the Moon Child. Your emotions stabilize by the 25th. Meanwhile, try to hold off making major decisions until then. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) That keen sense of perception helps you hunt down those minute details that others overlook. And, of course, your Leonine ego will accept the expected praise with good grace. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be careful not to be confrontational when raising a work-related issue. Better to make a request than a demand. And, of course, be prepared to back up your case with facts. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your ego might be hurt when a colleague turns down your offer to help. But accept it as a rejection of your offer, not of you. A friend from the past could re-emerge. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A flow of positive energy turns a work project you didnt want to do into something you actually love doing. Now, take that attitude into your social, intimate life and enjoy what follows. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Working hard to meet your professional goals is fine. But dont neglect your private life, especially where it concerns your more cherished relationships. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Patience remains the key word in dealing with an emotionally sensitive situation involving a close friend or family member. Help comes your way by weeks end. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) With new information coming in, its a good time to rethink some of your goals without taking suggestions from others, no matter how well-meaning they are. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Making progress on your project is relatively easy in the early part of the week. A problem could arise midweek. But all goes swimmingly once its resolved. walk as part of their Shabbat experience. The whole idea is to take the seventh day and make it holy, that is, to separate it from the mundane and make it special in whatever rituals will accomplish this purpose. As for the Shabbat before my wedding, I do remember my groom being called up to the Torah for an aufruf, a honor reserved for a groom, during which he makes a blessing over the Torah and everybody congratulates him after the honor. Since the Conservative movement was on the cusp of including women in those days, I did not attend Phils aufruf but when, in a few years later, women had the right to be included in a religious quorum, I began to take active part in Jewish communal life an activity I have continued to this day. May the spirit of Shabbat enter every home and fill us all with peace! Shabbat Shalom!

W IS FOR WASTED By Sue Grafton Graftons novels are always exuberant and catchy even when the author dips her toe into dark territory like homelessness and murder as she does in Wasted. At its center are two seemingly unrelated homicides that puzzle PI Kinsey Millhone. Two dead men changed the course of my life that fall. One of them I knew and the other Id never laid eyes on until I saw him in the morgue. To be sure, PI Pete Wolinskys murder is no surprise to her as his shady dealings were well known. But a shabbily-dressed alcoholic homeless man with Kinseys name and number in his clothing is something else. Still, the big surprise comes later when she learns he left her almost $600. And thats just for starters. Along the way she strikes up a peculiar relationship with three homeless people who knew the dead man and can furnish much needed information about himall of which leads Kinsey into a world of deception, greed and family resentment. To say anymore would constitute a spoiler. As to Graftons back story its still familiar to fans with just a few new twists. Kinsey still owns her all-occasion black dress, still hangs out with 88-year-old Henry, still lives in her cramped garage apartment and still maintains that shes a person of order and regulation, discipline and routine. But now an amusing Japanese bobtail cat named Ed has joined the makeshift family of Kinsey, Henry, William and Rosie. In addition to her gripping detective story which she wraps up with a master stroke that brings the two murders together in a satisfying way, Grafton offers a thoughtful meditation on homelessness by contrasting Kinseys cozy existence with one fraught with uncertainty, deprivation, and even violence. Fans like me are now wondering what this gifted author has in store for us in the last remaining alphabet lettersX, Y, and Z.

Our annual Fun in the Sun Senior Games are coming on Saturday, Nov. 2 from 10 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon. Ten teams of four people each compete for cash prizes and bragging rights that last an entire year. Trophies are awarded to the top three teams and the competition is fierce; well actually a lot less than fierce; more like funny. Teams must register with Geri and the fee is $10 per team which works out to $2.50 per player. The rules are really quite simple. Each player on a team must compete in two of the four events scheduled which are horseshoes; shuffleboard; bocce ball and last but not least; Wellie Wanging. These games draw huge crowds as spectators watch and cheer on their favorite teams. Along with the rooting, everyone enjoys the free hot dogs and bratwurst; lemonade and iced tea. A few of our residents even bring their own liquid refreshments; did I say a few? Everyone is familiar with most of the games that are part of this robust competition but some of you may not know about Wellie Wanging. Its really a simple game; the player picks up a green garden boot and then throws it as far as he or she can. Whoever gets the furthest distance with the boot wins. This sport is made a bit easier because no one is wearing the boot when it is thrown. We always have a great time at Fun in the Sun so plan to join us behind the clubhouse at our outstanding sports venue.Yard Sale open to the publicCherrywood Estates will hold its huge yard sale on Saturday, Oct. 19 from 8 in the morning until 1 in the afternoon. Come and cruise our neighborhood to find tools and trinkets; furniture and household items; lawn care equipment and clothing; or just about anything youre looking for. Our friendly residents will be out with all the things you need and want at bargain prices so pack up the family and come out and browse. This event is open to the public. The Clubhouse address for those of you using a GPS is 6253 S.W. 100 Loop. Once youve arrived there you can circle the streets checking out the treasures and trophies youve been looking for. We look forward to seeing you Saturday. Randy Riggle a riot Randy Riggle performed on Monday, Oct. 7 and he was a riot. In spite of the heavy rain, a record number of guests came out to see this world class comedian and laugh until it hurt. For nearly an hour Randy did his stand up comedy routine which included not only hilarious jokes but impersonations of such well known celebrities as Kermit the Frog; Liberace; Lou Costello of Abbott and Costello fame; and a side splitting Jerry Lewis that brought the house down. Talking with him after the show your reporter learned that Randy has been a writer for the Jay Leno show since 1988. That relationship will come to an end when Jay retires later this year. Randy is going on tour with his Nostalgia and Nostalgic Christmas Shows where he will appear in 14 States in just 6 weeks. In addition to that he has been invited to appear on Veterans Day and Memorial Day at the Arizona Monument in Pearl Harbor. He admits that those performances are much more serious and he does them to honor his father; a U.S. Navy veteran. Beginning his career when he was in the Cub Scouts, Randy continued his learning of the trade throughout his youth. After graduation from high school he attended college on a football scholarship. One year later a he was injured which took him out of his football career and his college money. Returning to what he loved, one night he tried his luck on the Comedy Club circuit by getting up on Open Mic night. Randy readily admitted that he bombed. Not discouraged, he went home and worked on the material and after a couple of weeks tried his luck again. This time he won first prize and was invited back as a regular. He has been doing comedy in one form or another ever since. Geri has received many requests to have him return to our clubhouse in the future and she is working on that. If you would like a really funny comedian to perform for your organization, contact Randy Riggle at www.nostalgiashow.com. You wont regret it.Friday, October 18, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 18, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Fun in the Sun games coming on Nov. 2 Cherrywood John Everlove PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 Bad to the Bone The Marion County Sheriffs SWAT team took first place in the Bad to the Bone competition last week.

This is one of two major fund raisers for the Veterans Club through out the year and enables that organization to do its good works throughout the year. Each bowler has a pledge sheet and individuals sign up for either an amount per pin or a flat rate. If an individual, for example, pledges 2 cents a pin and the bowler rolls 150 for each of the three games; that pledge is worth $9. A flat rate pledge is good for that amount no matter what the bowler throws. When one of our bowlers approaches you, please be generous with your tax deductible gift. We are also taking prizes for the raffles at our bowler appreciation banquet. If you frequent a business such as a beauty salon; restaurant; party store or any local shop; ask if they would like to make a contribution of a gift certificate or item. Corporate Sponsors are welcome. Signed up thus far to help our Veterans Club; Sammys Italian Restaurant; Swinson Chiropractic; Dennis Stickney DDS; Galaxy Lanes West; and Marco at Your Next Barber Shop.

BY JEAN DIPIERO Special to the CitizenbegruBen alle to the Indigo East Oktoberfest which was held on Oct. 13, Sunday at 5 oclock. It was a great turnout due to the hard working neighbors who put the Oktoberfest together. The Indigo East Community Center was filled with laughter, good food and great music. Eve Gillespie talked about the history of Oktoberfest. It was started some 200 years ago in Germany and continues today. In 1835 a parade became part of the regular festivities and now approximately 8,000 people in costumes walk through Munich to the Oktoberfest site. In 1950, a 12 gun salute signaled the tapping of the first beer keg by the mayor of Munich and today 7 million liters of beer are consumed. I dont think we drank that much! Eve Gillespie said the prayer before dinner. The menu consisted of sauerkraut, pork roast, spatzel, red cabbage, bratworst, applesauce, German potato salad and bread. This was all served family style. After savoring the delicious food the next stop was the dessert table. The desserts were a feast for everyones eyes. It consisted of German chocolate cake (with a frosting to die for), cherry cobbler, apple cobbler, pumpkin pie and cookies. Wunderbar! After eating it was time to dance. The music was provided by the Ocala Accordion Club. Dick Richards played the accordion along with Bill Cayhill on the drums. Dick Richards has played the accordion since he was a young man. Some of our neighbors really know how to cut a rug. Everyone enjoyed the music including the chicken dance. There was a 50/50 raffle and mums, which were the centerpiece on all the tables were given away as well along with other special prizes. Once again, thanks to all the neighbors who put Oktoberfest together and made it such an outstanding event.

Haben sie eine gute heute abend! Friday, October 18, 2013 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, October 18, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Veterans Club meeting Everyone is urged to attend the Veterans Club meeting on Thursday, Nov. 7 at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse to hear special guests Julie Drexel of Patriot Service Dogs and Beverly Carver of the Marion County Humane Society. These ladies will tell of the two year journey that service dogs make to take their place beside a disabled veteran. Julie is a riveting speaker and Beverly a wealth of information concerning animal welfare and care. Both unite to give a wonderful presentation that will be of interest to animal lovers; veterans and the community in general. Your Veterans Club has already made a commitment to the work that these ladies are doing for our disabled veterans, so come learn more about this wonderful program. A special thank you and recognition goes out to a man who has been a loyal and strong supporter of our Veterans Club. It was he that got our two organizations together. Because he wants to remain anonymous I will just refer to him as Norm but he knows who he is and hopefully, how much we appreciate his efforts. An added treat to this meeting will be honoring Norellen and Edward Pickell for their many years of service with the Support our Soldiers project. More than one ton of goods have been shipped to units serving in harms way thanks to them. There will also be discussions of the Widows luncheon; Veterans Day and the Bowl-a-Thon among other items on the agenda. Immediately following the meeting, everyone adjourns to the patio for some adult beverages and warm conversation. As always, our meetings are open to everyone in Cherrywood and we urge you to attend. You will be amazed at the things you will learn. Halloween DanceWitches and black cats; pumpkins and ghosts are all getting ready for Halloween so why should you be any different? Get your favorite costume out of the closet and dust off the memories of Halloweens past then get your tickets for the annual Cherrywood Halloween Dance. This is always a fun event where costumes are judged and prizes awarded to the best ones. Use your imagination to make yourself up or wear a store bought outfit or combine the two. Richard Becotte, our award winning Deejay, will be playing your favorite tunes to listen or dance to. He even has a few scary songs to throw in the mix this time of year like the dreaded Monster Mash among others. Come to think of it, Richard is pretty scary all the time; not just at Halloween. Saturday, Oct. 26 is the date for this gala affair and it starts at 7 in the evening. Get your ticket from Geri for just $2 per person and then bring a snack to pass around. Come and see just how frightening your neighbors can be while you dance the night away and snack on some pretty terrific foods. See you at the Halloween Dance.Horse RacesWhile no one living in Cherrywood has horses, we do live in Ocala; horse capital of the world. So on Saturday, Nov. 9 from 6 until 10 in the evening, Cherrywood will host its own version of the Kentucky Derby horse races. Heres how we have all the fun of a horse race without the clean up so to speak. There are six wooden horses at the Clubhouse to choose from. Teams of volunteers choose a horse for $10 and then between now and the race, they decorate their steed. These horse figures dont eat but you will have to adorn them the very best you can. The best looking horse will win a prize for its team. On the night of the race, all six horses will be lined up. The scorekeeper will play the trumpet call and then begin rolling a couple of huge Styrofoam dice. The horses will advance down the clubhouse track until theres a winner; a show and a place. Its exciting and fun; frustrating and disappointing; pretty much like being at the real track. Bring your own liquid refreshments and snacks or partake of the free lemonade and iced tea. This is a truly enjoyable night out and its free. No tickets required; just bring your sense of humor along with your refreshments.CERT reminderOur Community Emergency Response Team reminds all our residents to complete the Emergency Notification form.

Entertainment, travel and sports highlight OTOWs activities Indigo East Oktoberfest PHOTOS BY JEAN DIPIEROThis is part of the crowd that was enjoying the Oktoberfest at Indigo East. Above, left, band members Dick Richards and Bill Cayhill. Above, right, Bob Cowie and Helga Schulze. The SECO Board of Trustees has examined the overall financial status of the cooperative and has authorized a return of $2.9 million to SECOs member/customers in the form of capital credits this year. SECO CEO Jim Duncan said, The Board has always been committed to sharing any excess margins the co-op might have at the end of each year with the membership. Counting this years capital credits return, SECOs Board has approved giving back $28 million to the members over the last 18 years. The credits will show up on customer electric statements during the month of November. Duncan continued, All of us at SECO understand the economic pressures our members must cope with on a daily basis. The price of nearly everything seems to go up each year. Being able to bring some measure of relief to strained household budgets is something we are anxious to do as long as the financial stability of the cooperative remains intact. The business model for a not-forprofit, member-owned electric cooperative like SECO is quite different from other types of utilities, concluded Duncan. At a co-op the members get to vote on who represents them on the Board of Trustees, they get to vote on any changes to the co-ops bylaws and they get to share in excess co-op margins. I think it is a tribute the current Board, and those board members that preceded them, that they have been unanimously committed to the capital credits sharing mechanism. They feel it is the right thing to do and their actions on returns have demonstrated that. Capital credits are the accumulation of all prior years revenue after the coops expenses have been paid. These credits are applied on a prorata basis to each SECO members account and represent a portion of the total monies paid to the co-op by each customer. SECO currently serves over 182,000 members in Marion, Lake, Sumter, Citrus, Pasco, Levy and Hernando counties. SECO customers get return of $2.9 million, board of trustees says 2 2 BINGO BINGO (352) 237-7373 Florida Lottery & Check-Out Pull Tab City N N O O W W O O P P E E N N 11175 SW 93rd Court Rd.

Bobs writing inspired me to take a trip to that Civil War site with my brother Jim. This visit will give us the opportunity to not only pay our respects to the Civil War soldiers that suffered there; but to all prisoners of war throughout our history. For that reason, I will be taking an absence from my writing duties with the Cherrywood section of the Citizen for a week. Before I go let me encourage you, the readers, to support two worthy causes that will be going on while I am gone. The first, the Veterans Club Bowl-aThon and the second the Patriot Dog project. sOur Bowl-a-Thon is a major fund raiser for the Veterans Club and allows us to help veterans not only in Cherrywood but throughout Marion County; the State of Florida and the Nation. If you own a business, please contact Geri and donate a gift certificate. Individuals can make a donation with our bowlers when they approach you or by phone. Second, the Cherrywood Veterans Club is seeking to provide $2500 to the Patriot Dog project. That is the cost of obtaining; maintaining and training a dog for a disabled veteran. We hope to accomplish this goal by the first of the year. Already the club has put aside $200 towards this end. If possible, will start the New Year off for a disabled vet by giving him or her a whole new life. Your support is necessary in order for us to accomplish this goal. It isnt easy to ask for money especially in these difficult times but I know the generosity of our community; the residents and business owners of Marion County. We can do this. Please know that none of the money donated to either of these projects goes for administration fees. None of the volunteers or officers of either Patriot Dogs or the Cherrywood Veterans Club receive any money or perks from the donations made to them. You can be a business sponsor or make a donation to the Bowl-a-Thon or Patriot Dogs by calling Geri at 237-1675 during normal business hours. My sincerest gratitude goes out to each of you for your support and compassion.

BY JEAN DIPIERO Special to the CitizenbegruBen alle to the Indigo East Oktoberfest which was held on Oct. 13, Sunday at 5 oclock. It was a great turnout due to the hard working neighbors who put the Oktoberfest together. The Indigo East Community Center was filled with laughter, good food and great music. Eve Gillespie talked about the history of Oktoberfest. It was started some 200 years ago in Germany and continues today. In 1835 a parade became part of the regular festivities and now approximately 8,000 people in costumes walk through Munich to the Oktoberfest site. In 1950, a 12 gun salute signaled the tapping of the first beer keg by the mayor of Munich and today 7 million liters of beer are consumed. I dont think we drank that much! Eve Gillespie said the prayer before dinner. The menu consisted of sauerkraut, pork roast, spatzel, red cabbage, bratworst, applesauce, German potato salad and bread. This was all served family style. After savoring the delicious food the next stop was the dessert table. The desserts were a feast for everyones eyes. It consisted of German chocolate cake (with a frosting to die for), cherry cobbler, apple cobbler, pumpkin pie and cookies. Wunderbar! After eating it was time to dance. The music was provided by the Ocala Accordion Club. Dick Richards played the accordion along with Bill Cayhill on the drums. Dick Richards has played the accordion since he was a young man. Some of our neighbors really know how to cut a rug. Everyone enjoyed the music including the chicken dance. There was a 50/50 raffle and mums, which were the centerpiece on all the tables were given away as well along with other special prizes. Once again, thanks to all the neighbors who put Oktoberfest together and made it such an outstanding event. Committee members were Eve and Bob Gillespie, Joyce and Jon Gysen, Helga Schultze, Helen and Terry Solan, Marybeth Barnes, Paul and Dick Lord (and their dog Abby), Charlie and Betty Chadwell, Nancy Dickerson, Barbara Fleck, Barbara and Larry Kratz, Barbara Martyn, Marta and Pete DiSosto, Sue Siegel, Harold and Kathy Brouillard, Mary Lou Masone and Mary Walters.

A special thank you and recognition goes out to a man who has been a loyal and strong supporter of our Veterans Club. It was he that got our two organizations together. Because he wants to remain anonymous I will just refer to him as Norm but he knows who he is and hopefully, how much we appreciate his efforts. An added treat to this meeting will be honoring Norellen and Edward Pickell for their many years of service with the Support our Soldiers project. More than one ton of goods have been shipped to units serving in harms way thanks to them. There will also be discussions of the Widows luncheon; Veterans Day and the Bowl-a-Thon among other items on the agenda. Immediately following the meeting, everyone adjourns to the patio for some adult beverages and warm conversation. As always, our meetings are open to everyone in Cherrywood and we urge you to attend. You will be amazed at the things you will learn. Halloween DanceWitches and black cats; pumpkins and ghosts are all getting ready for Halloween so why should you be any different? Get your favorite costume out of the closet and dust off the memories of Halloweens past then get your tickets for the annual Cherrywood Halloween Dance. This is always a fun event where costumes are judged and prizes awarded to the best ones. Use your imagination to make yourself up or wear a store bought outfit or combine the two. Richard Becotte, our award winning Deejay, will be playing your favorite tunes to listen or dance to. He even has a few scary songs to throw in the mix this time of year like the dreaded Monster Mash among others. Come to think of it, Richard is pretty scary all the time; not just at Halloween. Saturday, Oct. 26 is the date for this gala affair and it starts at 7 in the evening. Get your ticket from Geri for just $2 per person and then bring a snack to pass around. Come and see just how frightening your neighbors can be while you dance the night away and snack on some pretty terrific foods. See you at the Halloween Dance.Horse RacesWhile no one living in Cherrywood has horses, we do live in Ocala; horse capital of the world. So on Saturday, Nov. 9 from 6 until 10 in the evening, Cherrywood will host its own version of the Kentucky Derby horse races. Heres how we have all the fun of a horse race without the clean up so to speak. There are six wooden horses at the Clubhouse to choose from. Teams of volunteers choose a horse for $10 and then between now and the race, they decorate their steed. These horse figures dont eat but you will have to adorn them the very best you can. The best looking horse will win a prize for its team. On the night of the race, all six horses will be lined up. The scorekeeper will play the trumpet call and then begin rolling a couple of huge Styrofoam dice. The horses will advance down the clubhouse track until theres a winner; a show and a place. Its exciting and fun; frustrating and disappointing; pretty much like being at the real track. Bring your own liquid refreshments and snacks or partake of the free lemonade and iced tea. This is a truly enjoyable night out and its free. No tickets required; just bring your sense of humor along with your refreshments.CERT reminderOur Community Emergency Response Team reminds all our residents to complete the Emergency Notification form. These forms are available at the office from Geri and once filled out; they are kept on file in complete confidentiality by David Siegel; CERT Team Leader.

Above, left, band members Dick Richards and Bill Cayhill. Above, right, Bob Cowie and Helga Schulze. The SECO Board of Trustees has examined the overall financial status of the cooperative and has authorized a return of $2.9 million to SECOs member/customers in the form of capital credits this year. SECO CEO Jim Duncan said, The Board has always been committed to sharing any excess margins the co-op might have at the end of each year with the membership. Counting this years capital credits return, SECOs Board has approved giving back $28 million to the members over the last 18 years. The credits will show up on customer electric statements during the month of November. Duncan continued, All of us at SECO understand the economic pressures our members must cope with on a daily basis. The price of nearly everything seems to go up each year. Being able to bring some measure of relief to strained household budgets is something we are anxious to do as long as the financial stability of the cooperative remains intact. The business model for a not-forprofit, member-owned electric cooperative like SECO is quite different from other types of utilities, concluded Duncan. At a co-op the members get to vote on who represents them on the Board of Trustees, they get to vote on any changes to the co-ops bylaws and they get to share in excess co-op margins. I think it is a tribute the current Board, and those board members that preceded them, that they have been unanimously committed to the capital credits sharing mechanism. They feel it is the right thing to do and their actions on returns have demonstrated that. Capital credits are the accumulation of all prior years revenue after the coops expenses have been paid. These credits are applied on a prorata basis to each SECO members account and represent a portion of the total monies paid to the co-op by each customer. SECO currently serves over 182,000 members in Marion, Lake, Sumter, Citrus, Pasco, Levy and Hernando counties. SECO customers get return of $2.9 million, board of trustees says 2 2 BINGO BINGO (352) 237-7373 Florida Lottery & Check-Out Pull Tab City N N O O W W O O P P E E N N 11175 SW 93rd Court Rd.

This is one of two major fund raisers for the Veterans Club through out the year and enables that organization to do its good works throughout the year. Each bowler has a pledge sheet and individuals sign up for either an amount per pin or a flat rate. If an individual, for example, pledges 2 cents a pin and the bowler rolls 150 for each of the three games; that pledge is worth $9. A flat rate pledge is good for that amount no matter what the bowler throws. When one of our bowlers approaches you, please be generous with your tax deductible gift. We are also taking prizes for the raffles at our bowler appreciation banquet. If you frequent a business such as a beauty salon; restaurant; party store or any local shop; ask if they would like to make a contribution of a gift certificate or item. Corporate Sponsors are welcome. Signed up thus far to help our Veterans Club; Sammys Italian Restaurant; Swinson Chiropractic; Dennis Stickney DDS; Galaxy Lanes West; and Marco at Your Next Barber Shop. If you would like to be a corporate sponsor please contact Geri at 352-237-1675. Our Veterans Club is extremely grateful to our bowlers and to those who have put the support of their businesses behind this worthy cause.Ladies Luncheon16 lovely Cherrywood ladies came together to enjoy lunch and conversation on Wednesday, Oct. 9.

Our annual Fun in the Sun Senior Games are coming on Saturday, Nov. 2 from 10 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon. Ten teams of four people each compete for cash prizes and bragging rights that last an entire year. Trophies are awarded to the top three teams and the competition is fierce; well actually a lot less than fierce; more like funny. Teams must register with Geri and the fee is $10 per team which works out to $2.50 per player. The rules are really quite simple. Each player on a team must compete in two of the four events scheduled which are horseshoes; shuffleboard; bocce ball and last but not least; Wellie Wanging. These games draw huge crowds as spectators watch and cheer on their favorite teams. Along with the rooting, everyone enjoys the free hot dogs and bratwurst; lemonade and iced tea. A few of our residents even bring their own liquid refreshments; did I say a few? Everyone is familiar with most of the games that are part of this robust competition but some of you may not know about Wellie Wanging. Its really a simple game; the player picks up a green garden boot and then throws it as far as he or she can. Whoever gets the furthest distance with the boot wins. This sport is made a bit easier because no one is wearing the boot when it is thrown. We always have a great time at Fun in the Sun so plan to join us behind the clubhouse at our outstanding sports venue.Yard Sale open to the publicCherrywood Estates will hold its huge yard sale on Saturday, Oct. 19 from 8 in the morning until 1 in the afternoon. Come and cruise our neighborhood to find tools and trinkets; furniture and household items; lawn care equipment and clothing; or just about anything youre looking for. Our friendly residents will be out with all the things you need and want at bargain prices so pack up the family and come out and browse. This event is open to the public. The Clubhouse address for those of you using a GPS is 6253 S.W. 100 Loop. Once youve arrived there you can circle the streets checking out the treasures and trophies youve been looking for. We look forward to seeing you Saturday. Randy Riggle a riot Randy Riggle performed on Monday, Oct. 7 and he was a riot. In spite of the heavy rain, a record number of guests came out to see this world class comedian and laugh until it hurt. For nearly an hour Randy did his stand up comedy routine which included not only hilarious jokes but impersonations of such well known celebrities as Kermit the Frog; Liberace; Lou Costello of Abbott and Costello fame; and a side splitting Jerry Lewis that brought the house down. Talking with him after the show your reporter learned that Randy has been a writer for the Jay Leno show since 1988. That relationship will come to an end when Jay retires later this year. Randy is going on tour with his Nostalgia and Nostalgic Christmas Shows where he will appear in 14 States in just 6 weeks. In addition to that he has been invited to appear on Veterans Day and Memorial Day at the Arizona Monument in Pearl Harbor. He admits that those performances are much more serious and he does them to honor his father; a U.S. Navy veteran. Beginning his career when he was in the Cub Scouts, Randy continued his learning of the trade throughout his youth. After graduation from high school he attended college on a football scholarship. One year later a he was injured which took him out of his football career and his college money. Returning to what he loved, one night he tried his luck on the Comedy Club circuit by getting up on Open Mic night. Randy readily admitted that he bombed. Not discouraged, he went home and worked on the material and after a couple of weeks tried his luck again. This time he won first prize and was invited back as a regular. He has been doing comedy in one form or another ever since. Geri has received many requests to have him return to our clubhouse in the future and she is working on that. If you would like a really funny comedian to perform for your organization, contact Randy Riggle at www.nostalgiashow.com. You wont regret it.Friday, October 18, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 18, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Fun in the Sun games coming on Nov. 2 Cherrywood John Everlove PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 Bad to the Bone The Marion County Sheriffs SWAT team took first place in the Bad to the Bone competition last week.

W IS FOR WASTED By Sue Grafton Graftons novels are always exuberant and catchy even when the author dips her toe into dark territory like homelessness and murder as she does in Wasted. At its center are two seemingly unrelated homicides that puzzle PI Kinsey Millhone. Two dead men changed the course of my life that fall. One of them I knew and the other Id never laid eyes on until I saw him in the morgue. To be sure, PI Pete Wolinskys murder is no surprise to her as his shady dealings were well known. But a shabbily-dressed alcoholic homeless man with Kinseys name and number in his clothing is something else. Still, the big surprise comes later when she learns he left her almost $600. And thats just for starters. Along the way she strikes up a peculiar relationship with three homeless people who knew the dead man and can furnish much needed information about himall of which leads Kinsey into a world of deception, greed and family resentment. To say anymore would constitute a spoiler. As to Graftons back story its still familiar to fans with just a few new twists. Kinsey still owns her all-occasion black dress, still hangs out with 88-year-old Henry, still lives in her cramped garage apartment and still maintains that shes a person of order and regulation, discipline and routine. But now an amusing Japanese bobtail cat named Ed has joined the makeshift family of Kinsey, Henry, William and Rosie. In addition to her gripping detective story which she wraps up with a master stroke that brings the two murders together in a satisfying way, Grafton offers a thoughtful meditation on homelessness by contrasting Kinseys cozy existence with one fraught with uncertainty, deprivation, and even violence. Fans like me are now wondering what this gifted author has in store for us in the last remaining alphabet lettersX, Y, and Z.

Friday, October 18, 2013 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, October 18, 2013 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A colleague might offer to open a door for you professionally. But before you walk through it, be sure this favor isnt attached to an obligation you might find difficult to discharge. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your creativity, your persistence and your reliability could lead to a major career shift. Be sure to use that other Taurean trait, your practicality, when discussing what the job offers. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A changing situation might require some adjustments you might not have been prepared to make. However, flexibility in this matter could be the best course to follow at this time. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Youre in a period of fluctuating moods, which is not unusual for the Moon Child. Your emotions stabilize by the 25th. Meanwhile, try to hold off making major decisions until then. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) That keen sense of perception helps you hunt down those minute details that others overlook. And, of course, your Leonine ego will accept the expected praise with good grace. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be careful not to be confrontational when raising a work-related issue. Better to make a request than a demand. And, of course, be prepared to back up your case with facts. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your ego might be hurt when a colleague turns down your offer to help. But accept it as a rejection of your offer, not of you. A friend from the past could re-emerge. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A flow of positive energy turns a work project you didnt want to do into something you actually love doing. Now, take that attitude into your social, intimate life and enjoy what follows. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Working hard to meet your professional goals is fine. But dont neglect your private life, especially where it concerns your more cherished relationships. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Patience remains the key word in dealing with an emotionally sensitive situation involving a close friend or family member. Help comes your way by weeks end. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) With new information coming in, its a good time to rethink some of your goals without taking suggestions from others, no matter how well-meaning they are. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Making progress on your project is relatively easy in the early part of the week. A problem could arise midweek. But all goes swimmingly once its resolved. walk as part of their Shabbat experience. The whole idea is to take the seventh day and make it holy, that is, to separate it from the mundane and make it special in whatever rituals will accomplish this purpose. As for the Shabbat before my wedding, I do remember my groom being called up to the Torah for an aufruf, a honor reserved for a groom, during which he makes a blessing over the Torah and everybody congratulates him after the honor. Since the Conservative movement was on the cusp of including women in those days, I did not attend Phils aufruf but when, in a few years later, women had the right to be included in a religious quorum, I began to take active part in Jewish communal life an activity I have continued to this day. May the spirit of Shabbat enter every home and fill us all with peace! Shabbat Shalom!

Friday, October 18, 2013 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, October 18, 2013 www.smcitizen.com started for the door. How I got turned around is any mans guess. Actually, I think it turned around too many times. For the next 15 minutes, I tried to find the way I came in so I could go out. The trouble started when I hesitated. I stopped to try to get my bearings and in stopping a young woman approached me. How do you do today, sir, she said most cheerfully. I nodded and tried to get away as graciously as possible. She would have none of it. And how do you smell today, sir? Had I been in my right sense of mind I would have told her I smelled with my nose. Being in a confused state of affairs, I had no quick come back for her. It was then that she introduced me to her product. I must confess I am not up-to-date with all of the body lotions and perfumes that are available today. I shave in the morning, splash some aftershave on my face, rub some deodorant under my armpits and that is as far as I go. This young woman took me for a potential customer of her body lotions and ointments and perfumes. I suppose many people are concerned with how they smell. I am not one of them. My basic philosophy along this line is simply, if I cannot stand my own smell, I take a shower. I know when it is time to take a shower when I can smell myself. She wanted to introduce me to some body lotions and ointments and perfumes that would make me smell alluring to anybody I met during the day. Personally, I do not have a Bucket List but if I did this would not be one of the items on it. Trying to be polite, I informed the young woman I was late for an appointment and needed to get on right away. Oh, she said very cheerfully, this will not take long at all. With that said, and before I could process what she said, she began rubbing my face with body ointment or lotion of some sort. I froze and for a few moments, I could not even move. Even the little grey cells upstairs were shocked into a rare state of stillness. Now, you smell wonderful. It was at that time I retired with honor my gentlemanly manners and started running as fast as I could run without drawing too much attention to myself. I smelled that fragrance for three days in spite of the fact that I took 17 showers in the meantime. Sometimes our focus is always on the outside. I like what Jesus said, Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess (Matthew 23:25). It does not matter how good I smell on the outside if there is stench on the inside. I want to focus on my inside and make it as fresh as possible. That is the fragrance God smells.Rev. James L.

PASTORCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 In Judaism, a wedding is a very joyous event and to make joyous the bride and groom is a mitzvah (commandment) of the highest regard. The Sabbath is also a very important day of ritual and worship in the Jewish faith. Combine the two concepts and you come up with something called a Brides Sabbath. The concept of a Shabbat, Sabbath, honoring a bride is a new custom in Judaism. In traditional Ashkenazi circles, the bride and groom do not see each other during the week before the wedding. In order to calm the bride and make her feel joyous on the Shabbat before her wedding, the brides female friends throw her a kind of religious bachelorette party usually towards the evening meal of the Sabbath, notably, Saturday eve. Though there are no set rules or guidelines, the gathering may include divrei Torah, words of Torah, and ,of course, words of wisdom from the attendees on marriage, children and their best wishes for a long and happy life together. The idea of a making Shabbat special for a bride has a mystical connection. The Kabbalists of old compared Shabbat to a bride. In a beautiful hymn sung in almost every synagogue on Shabbat, the Sabbath is compared to a bride. L cha Dodi even has a stanza where traditionally the congregants stand and face the back of the synagogue to welcome the Shabbat bride. This wondrous symbolism of holiness and beauty is a fitting metaphor for the most sacred day of the week. In Jewish legend, there is a story of how the seventh day complained to God that she did not have a mate where as all the other days of the week had pairs. It is said that the Almighty promised the seventh day, that is the Sabbath, that the People of Israel would be her mate. Thus the Jewish people were wedded to the Sabbath in a holy union as a bride and groom are when they stand under the wedding canopy. To this day, the observance of the Sabbath is an important ritual in Judaism. Even in secular parts of modern Israel, sitting down for a meal on Shabbat eve is a cultural act which many Israelis find satisfying. It also affords them time with their families and friends after a hectic week of activity. In America, the observance of Shabbat ranges from the very traditional to the most liberal and everything in between. There are those who will not travel on Shabbat and even take out the electric bulb in the fridge so as not to create a spark (electricity) which is forbidden as fire is not to be kindled on the Shabbat. Still others will relax and listen to music or read a book or take a A special Sabbath for the bride Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE11 Sunday, Oct. 27 Chamber Music Society concertThe Marion Chamber Music Society is opening its 2013-2014 concert season with Motets, Madrigals and Medieval Music featuring The Florida Schola Cantorum, a group of singers from Gainesville led by Dr. Ed Schaefer dedicated to music of the Renaissance and Middle Ages.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) responded by calling Vitter an anarchist playing really juvenile political games for insisting that Congress and Obama follow the law, and the same rules as everyone else. But the public overwhelming disagrees with Reid. A poll sponsored by Independent Womens Voice found that 93 percent of likely voters, including 88 percent of Democrats, oppose the Congressional exemption from Obamacare. In the continuing battle over the CR, House Republicans have tried to repeal the special Obamacare exemption for Congress, but Sen. Harry Reid and his troops have so far rejected the measure. With the American public furious at how the Washington elites take care of themselves, the issue isnt going away any time soon. If the Republicans were smart, they would attach Senator Vitters bill to every piece of legislation passed by the House. As the pressure continues to build across the country, at some point the guardians of privilege will be forced to give up their subsidy, and learn how it feels to be an ordinary American living under the Obamacare monster they created.

Perhaps the biggest lie is that the government will not be able to pay what it owes on the national debt, creating a danger of default. Tax money keeps coming into the Treasury during the shutdown and it vastly exceeds the interest that has to be paid on the debt. If they dont lift the debt ceiling it only means that government is not allowed to run up new debt. Just like what you and I do when we run out of money at the end of the month! John A. Terry, OcalaFriends of the Library weekOctober 20-26 is the seventh annual celebration of National Friends of the Library week. What a perfect opportunity to acknowledge the Friends of Freedom Public Library for contributing their time and expertise, significantly enhancing our library services. Our Friends organization began in the year 2000 when Freedom Public Library was built. Over the course of these 13 years we have covered the costs of childrens programming, special collections, equipment and miscellaneous needs not included in the county budget. Freedom Public Library is a source of pride for our community. Our Friends group is a source of pride as well, and I am honored to serve as president. We will be available in the library lobby every day this week between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to meet patrons, answer questions about Friends and provide applications for anyone interested in joining us. We especially need volunteers to help with sorting and shelving donated books, and transporting them to the storage locker. Thank you for your time and attention. Carol (Casey) Edkins, President Friends of Freedom Public LibraryCapitol Hill shenanigansIn light of the shenanigans currently playing out on Capitol Hill, I feel compelled to air some of my thoughts. I submit that the government of the people, by the people, for the people, affectionately so referenced by President Lincoln, no longer exists in these United States. Instead, for decades, we have had a Congress made up of a bunch of smug, unprincipled, spineless puppets that jerk and jump as their strings are yanked by their owners. Remember, we put them in office, and we have the power to boot them out. Let us exercise that power on Election Day and send home all incumbents to find an honest job in the private sector they helped gradually decimate during their terms in office. Karl Barlay, Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 This past week I had to go to the mall. I know, I should know better but I thought I could sneak in, get what I needed and sneak out again. So much for my thoughts. I wanted to purchase several tie chains for my neckties and searched every jewelry store and nobody had them. Finally, I ordered three online, which would be shipped free, (which always gets my attention) to the nearest store, which happened to be in the mall. I do not like the mall and choose not to go there if I can help it. When in the mall I am usually very nervous and get confused and do not know which way I am going. Once I get in, I am not quite sure how to get out again. Everything seems to be contrived to confuse a person like myself. Looking down at the ground while walking I became rather confused and I happen to turn into an open door. My mall savvy is not sophisticated in the lease. The door I turned into happened to be for the store Victorias Secret. I do not know who Victoria is, I did not know what the store was all about but when I got in the store I discovered Victorias Secret much to my great embarrassment. That is exactly the reason I do not like going into the malls. They have places like this that a gentleman, such as Yours Truly, should never enter. I am not sure how I got out of that store, all I can remember was a great deal of hilarious laughter thrown in my direction from inside. I just hope they did not recognize me. They probably did not, because I had all my clothes on. It has been a long time since that incident and now I had to go and pick up my order. I put together a plan to sneak in very quietly, pick up my order and tiptoe out as quietly as I came in. You know what they say about welllaid plans! Whether mine was well laid or not, it blew up in my face. I did slip into the mall and found the store where my order was. I picked them up and quietly turned around and Is it a fragrance or a stench? Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 On this day in 1867 the United States flag was raised as the U.S. took possession of Alaska from Russia, following the Senates approval of the purchase on Aug. 1, 1867. Years later on Jan. 3, 1959, Alaska became the 49th. state. Todays Pun Alley presents some cool humor that hopefully doesnt leave you cold.Ancient historyTen thousand years ago, the first humans came to North America. They crossed from Russia to Alaska. Actually, they hadnt intended to do this. But they got lost and couldnt get their Berings Strait.StatehoodIn Congress when Alaska was pushing to become a state, a representative from Texas objected on the ground that Texas would no longer be the largest state. A representative from Alaska replied, Well, if you like, we can split in two and make Texas the 3rd largest state. When Alaska was admitted to the Union, Gov. Price Daniels of Texas said, Just wait until all that snow and ice melts. Then theyll find out which is the biggest state.Ice fishingGeorge and Tom were sitting out on a lake all day ice fishing. George had no luck at all and Tom was pulling fish after fish out of his hole in the ice. George finally asked Tom what his secret was. Mu mupu meep ma mrrms mrrm Tom replied. Gee, Tom, what was that? Mu mupu meep ma mrrms mrrm. Good grief Tom, still cant understand what you are saying. Tom spit something into his hand and replied very clearly, I said, You gotta keep the worms warm.Cold receptionAfter fishing all day George went to his local saloon and drank all evening. As he went to leave, the bartender said to him, You owe me quite a bit on your tab. Sorry, said George, Im flat broke this week. Thats okay, the bartender replied. Ill just write your name and the amount you owe me right here on the wall. But, George said, I dont want any of my friends to see that. They wont, said the bartender. Ill just hang your parka over it until its paid.Alaskan FlakesA city passed a law outlawing all dogs. It became known as Dogless Fairbanks. An ig is an igloo without a loo. Penguins bring babies instead of the stork. People put things in the refrigerator to keep them warm. You get cold cream from cows.Bear signsThere are lots of bears in Alaska. Wise hikers wear little bells while on the trail, and constantly keep an eye out for bear droppings. You can easily tell which droppings are bear droppings because they are the ones with little bells in them.Cold weather alertJohn, a new resident in Alaska, heard a radio advisory stating that anyone traveling in winter conditions should take a shovel, blankets or sleeping bag; extra clothing, including scarf, hat and gloves; 24 hour supply of food; 5 pounds of rock salt; flashlight with spare batteries; road flares and reflective triangles; tow rope, a five-gallon can of gas, first aid kit and jumper cables. He looked like a complete idiot the first time he got on the bus.Stormy weatherAn Eskimo was out fishing in his kayak when a storm came up. He wrapped up in his walrus robe as best he could, but soon realized he was going to freeze unless he quickly did something. In desperation, he tore some of the ribs out of his kayak and built a small fire in the bottom of the boat to warm himself. Of course the fire burned a hole in the bottom of the kayak, it sank and the Eskimo drowned. This once again proves, You cant have your kayak and heat it, too.Blond moose huntingTwo blond men were moose hunting all day when they finally shot a moose. They started dragging it out of the bush but were having a hard time. Finally a fellow hunter came along and said, Hey, you know if you drag the moose the other way with the grain of the fur it will be a lot easier. The two hunters said Hey, good idea! So they started dragging it the other way. About two hours later one blond looked at the other and said, Hey, this was a good idea, it is easier this way. The other blond said, Yeah, but we keep getting further away from the truck. Alaska has its own Pun Alley, and its cold Pun Alley Dick Frank 000FR3Y FLOORS & WINDOWS 6715 SW Hwy. 200 (located 5 mi.

Friday, October 18, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 18, 2013 BY PETER J. THOMAS AND PETER FERRARA Special to the MessengerIf Obamacare is so good, why was Congress crying to President Obama for an illegal exemption, which he freely granted? When Congress passed Obamacare in 2010, it stated that Congress and its staff would be subject to it the same as everyone else. That is only fair that they should live under the same rules that they imposed on everyone else. But Obamacare does not go into effect until next year. And as that fateful moment approached, panic spread across the halls of Congress, as it has for much of America, as the realization dawned as to what that would mean for them. Obamacare provides that those buying health insurance on the Exchanges cannot receive subsidies from their employers to help pay for it. They can only receive instead the taxpayer financed Obamacare subsidies to help pay for the highly expensive health insurance Obamacare requires. But that Obamacare health insurance welfare is mostly focused on low and moderate income families, though those making close to $100,000 a year can still receive some Obamacare welfare. The problem in Congress is that the Members and even some of their staffers make $174,000 a year, more than three times the national average. For anyone in the Exchanges making that much, there will be no taxpayer subsidies under Obamacare. They will be forced to pay the full cost of the highly expensive health insurance, with all of the costly requirements Obama and his Democrats have imposed. For many people, the full cost of that insurance will be double or more current market rates. In the Obamacare Exchanges, all of that will be paid for by the workers themselves, or by the taxpayers. That full cost of the Obamacare insurance will cost Congress and their staffs, and their families, roughly $5,000 to $11,000 a year. But Washington Insiders take care of their own. Congress and their staffs, and federal employees generally, have enjoyed their own special health insurance deal, the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program (FEHBP), financed mostly by the taxpayers. It is a good deal for Congress and federal employees, with each choosing among a wide range of different health insurance plans, free of Obamacare. As the weeping and wailing in the halls of Congress reached the ears of the Obama Administration, not to worry came the reply. During the August recess, when the rest of America was out enjoying the last rites of summer, President Obama quietly ordered the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to rule that the generous, taxpayer financed, health insurance subsidies of the FEHBP program would also apply to any federal employees, including Congress and their staffs, on the Obamacare Exchanges. This OPM ruling is flatly contrary to the express language of the Obamacare law, and is consequently illegal. As Senator David Vitter (R-LA) has explained, The Obamacare statute states very clearly that all members of Congress and their staffs are to procure their health insurance through the Obamacare Exchanges. Just as clearly, it does not provide for government support of their present coverage under the separate Federal Health Benefits Plan to continue to on the Exchanges. In fact, Section 1512 of the Statute says clearly that employees going on the Exchanges lose their previous employer subsidies. Thats why this special rule for Congress is illegal. But Senator Vitter has introduced legislation to reverse Obamas illegal OPM ruling, and apply the Obamacare law as written and enacted, removing Congresss special exemption. His bill requires all Members of Congress, and their staffs, and the President, and the Vice-President, and all political appointees of the Obama Administration, to comply with all of the requirements of Obamacare that they have imposed on everyone else. Normally, I leave the comments on Washington, D.C., affairs to those who cover that area in their usual course of events. We see constant writings of all types from people telling the government what to do, what not to do, attacking Congress, attacking the president, etc., and they have the right to express their opinion. But keep in mind that usually they have no more knowledge of events than any of us. There was one statement last week, though, that really got me thinking, and I want to share my thoughts. As I write this Monday morning, nothing has been settled concerning the shutdown and debt ceiling, so please bear that in mind if, by now, an agreement has been reached. I wish I could remember who said it, but there was a comment last week about government workers. This particular statement was about the Environmental Protection Agency, and the fact that only 7 percent of its workers were on the job. The other 93 percent were deemed non-essential and were furloughed. The commentator then added a very good question: If the 93 percent are non-essential now, why arent they non-essential all the time? In other words, do these 93 percent really need to be employed by the federal government? That statement could be applied to almost any government agency, not just the EPA. Why doesnt non-essential mean non-essential every day? Most people would not deny that the federal government is a bloated bureaucracy. So maybe this partial shutdown is a good thing. Its revealing to us how many people really arent needed in Washington and across the country. To be sure, there are some government workers furloughed that we want to see return. The people who run the parks and monuments, for instance, or the people who work as food inspectors, or the locally-based health agencies that help people across the country, would probably be on that list. But these people work directly for the public. Its the bureaucrats in D.C. who are non-essential in the operations of government. Some Congressional workers have been furloughed. Yet, Congress keeps right on working as it usually does (I know, thats not necessarily a good thing). Do they really need to bring back those furloughed aides, especially in Washington. On the other hand, the aides who work the local offices, such as those for Rich Nugent here in Ocala, should be able to keep working, because they work directly with the people. Im sorry for the furloughed workers who are without income at the moment thats a terrible strain in these economic times. But thats the problem when you work for the government. A new administration, a new Congress, etc., could completely change the makeup of the federal workforce. Its a chance workers take when they sign up for government jobs. Hopefully when funding is restored, Congress and the president will force agencies to take a look at their essential personnel and determine who needs to stay and who needs to go. Then again, in a few months, this will all be forgotten and everything will be back to normal for Washington, D.C.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Analysts were watching Tuesdays Ocala city election to see if the voters were sending a message. After all, it was one of the first elections anywhere since the government partial shutdown began. But it was hard to get a feel for what the voters said except for one instance. A city charter amendment that would have eliminated runoffs in certain special elections was defeated. A group called Let the People Vote had lobbied long and hard to reject this amendment, and evidently the message got through. The voters responded by telling city officials not to mess with their right to vote. This should send a clear message to all governments in the area, if not in the nation. Under the guise of saving money, dont deprive us of our chance to properly elect candidates. For a couple of weeks now, there seems to have been an anti-incumbent sentiment growing in the U.S., mainly aimed at Congress. At the local level, the sentiment may have applied to one close race, but in the other there was no doubt that the incumbent was the popular choice. Brent Malever defeated Suzy Heinbockel for the District 1 City Council seat, ousting the incumbent by just 410 votes. But in the District 3 race, incumbent Jay Musleh easily coasted over political newcomer Aaron Fiehn by 1,859 votes. He got 78 percent of the vote. Other charter results were mixed, but most of the amendments were just paperwork to clear up some conflicting language. Voters passed a pair and defeated a pair, with no apparent pattern. One disturbing figure, as usual, was the low turnout. Only 10 percent of registered voters turned out to the polls, a typical city election figure. It remains a mystery to us why cities continuously hold elections on off dates. The standard Election Day in November is observed for county, state and national elections why not for cities, too, When only 10 percent of the voters are deciding the fate of city government, it means that the other 90 percent really have no complaints if they dont like the way things are going. If some of these voters moved to a country where the right to vote wasnt granted, they would be among the first to howl about liberty. But here, they dont seem to care. So ends the election season for most in this area. Now we have 2014 to look forward to, when two county commissioners and various state legislators and Congressmen are up for re-election. It should make for an interesting campaign year. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY No clear message from Ocala voters Is non-essential really non-essential? Congress gets special Obamacare exemption READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor PLEASESEECONGRESS, PAGE9 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Lies are winningThe lies are winning. The House of Representatives right to grant or withhold money is a Constitutional right. This means they have a right to decide whether or not they want to spend money on a particular government activity. The House voted enough money to cover everything except Obamacare. The government workers who were laid off are not idle because they did not vote enough to pay them The Senate chose not to authorize the money spent because it did not include Obamacare. You cannot blame other people for not giving you everything you want. And it is a fraud to blame them when you refuse the money. Obama keeps claiming that it is some new outrage for those in control of the money to try to change government policy by granting or withholding money.

Operation of Silver Springs and Silver River State Park has combined and is called Silver Springs State Park. Friends of Silver Springs/ River State Park is an active group of volunteers. This citizens support organization works year round to support the park and its visitors. Volunteers are needed to help with tasks associated with operating the state park. No matter what your interests, skills or hobbies, we have the perfect volunteer opportunities for you. If you like to work with people inside, then answering phones or working at the Information Centers or Museum might be the right job for you. If you like high paced and fun interaction with visitors, then you may want to volunteer in one of our ranger station locations. Silver Springs State Park has gardening opportunities in the gardens, the butterfly garden and other locations throughout the park. Park maintenance opportunities, including small and large carpentry projects are readily available. Special events are planned throughout the year.
