Seminar emphasizes care for veterans Hospice, Munroe host free teleconference BY CAROL JONES Special to the CitizenThis past summer Wallace Barrett, known to nearly everyone as Wally, accepted the position of Branch Library Supervisor III of Freedom Public Library. Wally has a Bachelors degree in English Literature from the University of Florida and a Masters degree in Library and Information Science from Florida State University. Not only does he know the complexities of a library, hes no stranger in the kitchen. Wally worked seven years as a chef at the Haile Plantation Golf and Country Club in Gainesville until he decided to change professions. His library career began at the University of Florida Smathers Library as a circulation supervisor. He came to Marion County Public Library System as a Public Services Assistant at the Dunnellon Branch, then to the Freedom Branch as a Librarian II. All were stepping stones to his current position. When asked to share his vision for the future of Freedom Public Library, he responded, I hope to maintain Freedoms well set path as a hub of the community and excellent provider of resources to all of our patron communities. I hope to continually assess the needs of the community and respond accordingly. Of course it would be wonderful to see an expansion of the Freedom Library building, staff and resources.

Members had the opportunity to watch television on the wide-screen, lounge in the comfortable chairs and walk inside the humidor. The new store in the Steeplechase Plaza is owned by Mike and Sue Rossignol, with their son Josh often lending a hand. The store offers premium cigars, pipes, tobacco products and fine accessories. (Photos by Michel Northsea) Refreshments and conversations were on tap for the evening for West Marion Business Association members, left to right, David Drozdowski, Jim Martin, Conrad Melancon and Dania Melancon during the mixer at Roz Cigar Emporium.

Hearing and Hearing Aid Pricing and Technology Disclosed Just the Lowest Price with th e Best Technology & Service What are Hearing Aid Channels and Bands? Two of the most important characteristics of hearing aids are Channels and Bands which are also some of the most misunderstood by users. To start off with, the number of channels or bands has nothing to do with the number of programs or volume settings. Sounds are processed and amplified by a hearing aid based on frequencies (or the pitch of a sound) and volumes. A peek at your audiogram will tell you how much amplification you need for any given frequency. In a nutshell, bands and channels thus determine how granular a hearing aid can process and amplify the sounds it perceives. To quote a great explanation from Philips: A band is what is used to control volume in different frequencies. This allows us to adjust more volume in a specific area of your hearing loss without effecting other areas where you might need less volume The more bands the hearing aid offers the more room we have to fit the aid to your hearing loss. Channels break up the frequency range into individual channels. This allows the hearing aid to differentiate noise from speech. The more channels the hearing aid has the more fine tuned it can be. For instance the sound of keys falling on a table, or water running in the sink may be overwhelming. When your hearing aid offers many channels we can adjust each frequency that is too loud without sacrificing the things you want to hear, like your spouse or boss. Thus, just the way a high-resolution picture gives you a sharper image, more bands and channels provide you with a more granular sound quality. More channels will provide better resolution on the frequencies and more bands will mean better resolution on the volume thus allowing your hearing aid to match your audiogram more accurately. www.nutechhearing.com M-F 9:00 to 4:00 p.m. Sat. and Sun.

The Trail of Terror will be located just inside the main park entrance, the first guided walk begins at 7 p.m. and the last walk is at 9:30 p.m. The 2012 event was so successful that park management succumbed to tricks and treats by all participating ghouls and monsters, as well as park visitors, to make The Dark Side an annual event. With more than 500 attending last year, this Octobers Halloween fright-fest promises even more thrills and fun for area residents. There will be scary sites and loud noises so parents should take that into consideration when bringing young children. Visitors should wear comfortable, close-toed shoes due to uneven terrain on The Trail of Terror. Flashlights will not be permitted on the trail, but costumes and glow sticks are encouraged. Regular Park admission fees apply, at $2 cash per person and children under 5 are free. The park is at 19158 S.W. 81st Place Road.

The 6th Passport Show will take place on Saturday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m. at Palm Grove. Rick Starr (comedian) and Nicole Sasser (vocals and trumpet) will be another double program. Rich Starr draws upon his heritage, on his childhood experiences and family for most of his material. His humor is intended to be no more offensive to the conservative listener than that of late-night television. If you work clean, Starr says, you can work anywhere. Ricks warmth and charisma on stage have enabled him to charm audiences across the country. A number of ingredients go into Rick Starrs act. Theres a youthful innocence, theres a professionalism. Hes so good, he makes it all, timing, phrasing, delivery and attitude, look easy. Starr and his audience can be hysterical even before he finishes a gag. Nicole Sasser, whether singing or playing the trumpet, is an accomplished and exciting artist. Her vocal abilities allow her to tackle many different musical styles and she approaches each style with refreshing taste and sensibility. She has a lush and rich sound on trumpet and can dazzle you with her technique. Nicoles energetic and positive attitude makes her music come alive. It has been said, Starrs comedy is different, original, funny and unusual. Nicoles is a talent to watch and enjoy. Tickets go on sale Monday, Nov. 4, from 8 to 10 a.m. in the card room. Cost is $15 per person. All other ticket requests, please call Carol Forgette, 352873-3074. Open to Oak Run residents and their guests only. Please make your check payable to ORHA, no cash.Warning! Computer ScamsDavid Connelly, who offers computer help through Oak Runs Reach Out Program, would like to let the Oak Run community know about a computer scam. He recently received calls from someone saying that his computer is infected with a virus and they need to remove it. He knew these were not legitimate calls because the caller was unable to tell him which one of his computers is infected, and, David knew all his anti-virus software is up to date. He went to a womans house who received the same call but fortunately she was unable to understand what they wanted her to do and they did not gain access to her computer. Your columnist has heard of someone who responded to an ad offering to speed up your computer. Before it was all over she was out money and her computer was working slower than ever! It seems clear that you should not respond to telephone calls about your computer and the ads you see offering computer services should be viewed with suspicion. Do You Remember?

That relationship problem can be resolved if youre flexible and less judgmental. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Not enough party bids to satisfy the Bovines fun-loving side this week? Go ahead and throw one of your own. Then prepare for some serious work coming up early next week. GEM INI ( May 21 to J une 20) A new and intensely productive cycle is about to kick in. Be careful not to get too stressed out, though. Make time to restore your energies by relaxing with family and friends. C ANC ER (June 21 to J uly 22) This could be a good time to share some of your plans with those closest to you. Their comments could give you some added insight into how you might accomplish your goals. LEO (July 23 to Au g. 22) An attack of self-doubt might be unsettling for the usually super-assured Feline. But it could be your inner voice telling you to hold off implementing your plans until youve reassessed them.

CAP RIC ORN (Dec. 22 to J an. 19) Once again, that Capricornean stubborn streak sets in and could keep you from getting much needed advice. Fortunately, it lifts by weeks end, in time to make a decision. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to F eb. 18) A surprise trip early in the week could lead to other unexpected offers when you return. Word to the wise: Avoid talking too much about this until youve made some decisions.

Friday, October 25, 2013 ~ 29 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 25, 2013 There is almost no reason for children to go trick-ortreating in neighborhoods any more. All you have to do is look at the agencies, businesses and churches that are holding Halloween celebrations this year, and you realize that children can dress up, go to one of these events accompanied by their parents, get their candy and return home safely. To be honest, I dont remember much about trick-or-treating when I was a kid, although Im sure I did it. We lived in suburban New Jersey, almost all houses around us, so it was probably a neighborhood thing. In many places now, though, two not-so-nice things have developed fear and greed. The greed finds people who bring a bunch of children in a car in costumes that took about two minutes to make, and they drop them off and let the kids go to strangers houses to get their greats. The fear comes from parents who really care about their childrens safeties. I can remember scares from needles in apples, etc., which is why individually wrapped candy is the only thing you should accept. Nowadays, I would worry more about doctored food items, particularly if your children go into a drug-infested neighborhood. Many agencies have listed the safety tips for Halloween, but it doesnt hurt to re-familiarize yourself with them. These come from the American Association of Pediatrics. A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds. If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home. Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat. Because pedestrian injuries are the most common injuries to children on Halloween, remind Trick-or-Treaters. Stay in a group and communicate where they will be going. Remember reflective tape for costumes and trick-or-treat bags. Carry a cellphone for quick communication. Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk. If no sidewalk is available, walk at the far edge of the roadway facing traffic. Never cut across yards or use alleys. Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks (as recognized by local custom). Never cross between parked cars or out driveways. Dont assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing Trick-or-Treaters. Just because one car stops, doesnt mean others will! Law enforcement authorities should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity. Lets all endeavor to make this a safe Halloween for children and drivers.

There were several things to take away from Mondays shooting at a middle school in Sparks, Nevada, including several comments that were made in connection with the tragedy. The shooter used a semi-automatic handgun, allegedly taken from his parents. The shooter was heard to ask, Why you people making fun of me, why you laughing at me? A teacher with military experience tried to stop him and was killed for his efforts, the only one besides the shooter to die. He is being hailed as a hero. A lot of the quotes coming from officials were statements such as You never think it will happen to you, and Things like that dont happen here. The shooters name is being withheld out of respect for his family. Lets go through these items one-by-one. First, the semi-automatic. While most true Americans agree with the right to bear arms, there comes a certain responsibility with that privilege. For people with children, its making sure that their kids cant get to their guns to do things like that. Was there some negligence in this case? Thats for the investigators to determine. Second, the boys comments. It makes it appear that he was being bullied, and this wouldnt be the first assailant who was in that position. Maybe someday the message will get through to bullies that when they pick on someone, they are putting their own lives in danger. Third, the teacher who was killed was trying to intervene. The shooter encountered the teacher, Michael Landsberry, who had a wife and two step-children, and shot him dead. In some cases when a shooter is challenged, he ends it all by shooting himself, and thats apparently what happened here. That would mean that the teacher may have saved many others. Fourth, weve heard those comments every time. People think they live in a quiet, safe community, and all of a sudden that tranquility is shattered and they realize that their safety has been compromised. What about you? Do you think you live in a community where something like this just cant happen.? Guess what we hope youre right, but you never know. Fifth, this is typical liberal nonsense the names of witnesses, children, are released, the name of the dead victim is released, but the name of the shooter is not. Weve said this before, our philosophy is to protect witnesses and victims, not the criminals. Respect for the family? They evidently made it easy for this kid to get his hands on a semi-automatic handgun. Who respects that? Also, doesnt Nevada have a public records law? So once again people are mourning, politicians are wringing their hands wondering what they can do, and parents are cautioning their children to be careful. Its just another sad episode in our violent culture. Hopefully, there wont be too many more. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Lessons from the latest shooting Be safe at organized Halloween events Liberals begin to feel the crush of Obamacare READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor BY MATT BARBER Special to the CitizenDisaster, embarrassment, humiliating and train wreck are just a few of the colorful terms being used to describe it. The Obama administrations incompetent half-billion-dollar rollout of its incompetent multitrillion-dollar signature achievement is but a tragic metaphor for this mans entire presidency. (Its not hyperbole when its true.) Nearly three weeks in and the utopian promise of affordable care for all has yielded but a handful of folks whove even been able to sign up for this clinic in socialism. That Obamacare something billed as a health-care panacea for the collective is something that the collective neither asked for, nor wanted, is now the back story. That it has failed so fantastically in every respect, has taken center stage. Reuters reports: In its third week of operations, the (Obamacare) website continues to experience problems, which government officials say they are working day and night to repair. Even allies of the Obama administration have been highly critical, with former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs calling it excruciatingly embarrassing and calling for some people to be fired. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., was both a sponsor of and cheerleader for Obamacare. He saw this coming. Once he read this 2,400-page regulatory monstrosity, he came to the same conclusion as did anyone else with two synapses to rub together. He called the implementation of Obamacare a huge train wreck and announced that, rather than resulting in his re-election, Obamas pet government health-care albatross would sink him into retirement. Still, the few who have somehow managed to enroll in Obamacare are discovering, to their dismay, what many of us have warned all along: There is nothing affordable about the paradoxically named Affordable Care Act. Though government geeks may be working day and night to fix the website, no amount of work will fix Obamacare itself. Its unfixable. The only solution is to total-out this jalopy. Even the Obamanistas are waking up. Just days before its launch, Politico lamented, The Obamacare that consumers will finally be able to sign up for next week (they werent) is a long way from the health plan President Barack Obama first pitched to the nation. Millions of low-income Americans wont receive coverage. Many workers at small businesses wont get a choice of insurance plans right away. Large employers wont need to provide insurance for another year. Far more states than expected wont run their own insurance marketplaces. And a growing number of workers wont get to keep their employer-provided coverage. The presidents like-minded base the hardcore left has also become restless. In a recent End of Day report, Gary Bauer, founder of Campaign for Working Families, gives one example from the leftwing Daily Kos. Bauer writes: Obamacares continued horrendous rollout (See next item) will likely cause the scales to fall from many eyes. Even some liberals are questioning Obamacare. We need to make sure that friends and family members who bought into the hype about hope and change know that it doesnt have to be this way. We can do better. The good news if you can call it that is that Obamacare is non-discriminating. Its putting the screws to every American rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, liberal and conservative. In the above-referenced Daily Kos piece, headlined Obamacare will double my monthly premium (according to Kaiser), liberal blogger Tirge Caps captures the shock experienced by most Americans even progressive Americans over the promise of Obamacare vs. the reality of Obamacare: My wife and I just got our updates from Kaiser telling us what our 2014 rates will be. Her monthly has been $168 this year, mine $150. We have a high deductible. We are generally healthy people who dont go to the doctor often. I barely ever go. The insurance is in case of a major catastrophe. Well, now, because of Obamacare, my wifes rate is going to $302 per month and mine is jumping to $284. I am canceling insurance for us and I am not paying any penalty. What the hell kind of reform is this? Oh, OK, if we qualify, we can get some government assistance. Great. So now I have to jump through another hoop to just chisel some of this off. And we dont qualify, anyway, so whats the point? I never felt too good about how this was passed and what it entailed, but I figured if it saved Americans money, I could go along with it. I dont know what to think now. This appears, in my experience, to not be a reform for the people. What am I missing? I realize I will probably get screamed at for posting this, but I cant imagine I am the PLEASESEEBARBER, PAGE11 000G8C0

TV Celebrity Chef Charles Mattocks, widely known as The Poor Chef, is on his way to Ocala as part of his hugely successful RV tour across America, and we invite you all to come down and pick up gift bags at our stops! On Monday, Oct.28, we will be at the Munroe Wound and Hyperbaric Center, 2124 S.W. 20th Place, Ocala from 9 a.m. to noon,, and in the afternoon between 2 and 5 p.m., we can be found at the Wound and Hyperbaric Center at 3300 S.W. 34th Ave., Suite 104, Ocala. When you come and meet Charles there is one thing you will notice straight away, and that is his captivating charm, enthusiasm and buzzing passion for what is taking him on this mission his desire to be the voice for a people so close to his heart diabetics, pre-diabetics and those trapped in a ever decreasing circle of healthy options to manage a disease that has reached global proportions! After first making his name on the Dr Oz Show by creating healthy yet affordable meals for under seven dollars, his passion for everyday good nutrition took the nation by storm, leading to appearances on The Today Show, Good Morning America, Dr. Oz, Martha Stewart and CNN. Further, he has taken his passion to paper, penning a best-selling cook book, Eat Cheap But Eat Well, and more recently this year a wonderfully fun and educational book especially for children and parents, Diabetes and Healthy Eating, which helps take the scary part out of dealing with diabetes for our kids. But theres so much more to this Chef like his famous uncle, the late, great Bob Marley, Charles is a champion for social change, and amid his media success Charles was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2011. What seemed initially like a death sentence turned into a personal mission to not only save his life, but also save the lives of others who shared his diagnosis. His awareness of this growing problem was only heightened when he had discussions with friends such as rap star Shorty Low, who was hospitalized for diabetes twice. Are you worried? asked Charles, but, despite its seriousness, the disturbing answer was no. Concerned by this complacent attitude, Charles became increasingly emotionally connected with people and families whose lives were greatly impacted by a condition that seemed to easily spiral out of control and these people were feeling trapped with no real solutions! Spurred on by this, his mission has taken him across the world with nutrition and pollution being global issues today, we see that some disease has no boundaries. Charles passion has seen him travel as far away as India and the Caribbean, and on these trips he has been motivated to make a film to educate and inspire diabetics around the world to make changes to their health by stressing good nutrition, lifestyle changes and raising glutathione to control inflammation. Charles has just returned from Jamaica where he has been filming with friends and family to be included in his upcoming reality TV Show Reversed, where we will follow people dealing with the stresses and struggles of these health challenges. This October will see Charles leaving Florida at the start of his second DiabetesTesting RV Tour, having teamed up with some great sponsors such as Great West Vans, Heal Together, Syntra 5 and Immunotec. Stops will include schools, hospitals and clinics where he and his team of professionals will answer questions about health and nutrition, discuss management options and also leave you with gift bags and maybe a bit more hope than you had at the start of the day a big part of his message is that a diabetic does have options, and education is the key! Not only to do the people of diabetes now have someone with a big heart and a generous spirit on their side, but also a great spokesperson for them in the medical and world arena with Charles representing the American Diabetes Association, a Blue Ribbon Champion for the International Diabetes Federation, the creator of the Charles Bar, a diabetic-friendly nutrition bar. We encourage you strongly to grab your kids, come down and meet Charles personally on his tour stops and learn how to protect yourselves and your children let some of his enthusiasm and fun rub off on you! Through inspiration and education as a result of the RV Tour TV shows and appearances, it is Charles hope that over 250,000,000 people will get tested for diabetes, as well as learn effective tools to manage diet and lifestyle. His movie The Diabetic You which is in the closing stages of filming, is designed to grab your attention it starts with a man with no teeth (later you see him being fitted with a beautiful new smile), but the point is made that if we do not educate ourselves about diet and nutrition, this can happen to us too! We encourage you to support him has he makes his way across the country, and tour dates can be found at http://diabeticyourvtour.com. More support sites include www.charlesmattocks.co m and http://www.immunotec.com/thepoorchef For any questions or to get in touch with Charles, please call 321-443-4064 or immunesupport@hotmail.com. Friday, October 25, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, October 25, 2013 www.smcitizen.com October 21, 2013In this MegaVote for Floridas 3 and 11 Congressional Districts:Recent Senate VotesContinuing Appropriations and Debt Limit Suspension Passage Vote Passed (81-18, 1 Not Voting) Senators approved a continuing appropriations resolution on Wednesday night, bringing an end to the 16-day partial government shutdown that began with the end of the federal fiscal year. The measure also extended the Treasurys ability to borrow to pay the nations debt obligations, avoiding a potentially-catastrophic default that loomed days later. The Senates leaders, Democrat Harry Reid of Nevada and Republican Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, hammered out the compromise early in the week after House Republicans failed to come to a consensus for their own plan. Their solution almost entirely avoided the issue of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, the implementation of which some conservative Republican senators had hoped to delay in exchange for restoring FY 2014 discretionary spending and raising the debt ceiling. The continuing resolution authorizes federal discretionary spending at levels established by sequester cuts, which amount to about $986 billion annually. Senators added about 3 billion dollars of additional spending to support natural disaster recovery, fight wildfires, and complete funding for a major dam and lock project on the Ohio River. It extended the Treasurys borrowing authority through Feb. 7, allowing the federal government to exceed the current statutory limit of $16.7 trillion on the national debt. The resolution also provided back pay for those federal and District of Columbia government workers who were furloughed after funds ran out on Oct. 1. To avoid the need to pass another continuing appropriations resolution in the absence of a new federal budget, the deal also required the House and Senate to form a budget conference committee. The body will have to iron out an agreement for the rest of Fiscal 2014 by Dec. 13. Republicans gained one small concession in the final package, as the bill also requires the Department of Health and Human Services to ensure it is verifying the income of individuals purchasing subsidized health insurance on its marketplace exchanges established by the Affordable Care Act. Under the 2010 law, exchanges opened for business on Oct. 1. Eighteen of the Senates most conservative Republican members voted against the measure. Democratic Senator Bill Nelson voted YES Republican Senator Marco Rubio voted NORecent House VotesContinuing Appropriations and Debt Limit Suspension Motion to Concur Vote Passed (285-144, 3 Not Voting) House members voted late Wednesday to end the partial government shutdown by passing a continuing appropriations resolution to fund the government through Jan. 15, 2014. The vote receded amendments previously approved by the chamber and accepted a resolution to the standoff that Senators forged at the beginning of last week and passed hours before. President Obama signed the continuing resolution shortly after midnight on Oct. 17. House Republican leadership offered several proposals to end the government shutdown and raise the federal debt ceiling early last week. The GOP caucus, however, could not come to a consensus on which plan to support. Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, decided to accept the Senate compromise as the risk of a default on the national debt by the Treasury loomed ever closer last week. The resolution did not postpone implementation of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, the major target of House conservative Republicans in delaying FY 2014 funds and an extension of the Treasurys debt ceiling. During the final vote, 144 Republicans voted against the measure while only 87 supported it. All 198 voting Democrats approved the resolution.Republican Congressman Rich Nugent voted NO Republican Congressman Ted Yoho voted NOUpcoming VotesThe House will consider legislation to reauthorize federal water development projects.COMPILED BY MEGAVOTE.

Well, it has been over 15 months ago that I quit writing the Spruce Creek Norths column in the Citizen. The biggest reason I had to quit was due to my hubbys and my serious health problems. We had a very rough year but thank God now we are doing fine. So I called Jim Clark the Citizens editor, and asked if the job was still available and he said yes. So here I am, hoping to bring you some news from Spruce Creek North. You remember where we are? Right off of 103rd Street Road across from Cherrywood. Stop in and see us sometime.Garage Sales in SCNWe are having a community garage sale on Nov.1 and 2 (Friday and Saturday). It looks like a lot of residents signed up for this sale..(Lots of new residents have moved in) The sale is from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. This is usually a great sale with wonderful people selling clean, usable items, so make sure you mark your calendars. Barb Turner used to organize these sales for many years but sadly she had to move back up North. We thank her for her many years of service. Our manager Ray is organizing it this time so residents just pay him $2 for ads in the paper. The list of sales will be at the SCN clubhouse.Fashion ShowIf you missed it, Cindy Hutchins (President of the Social Committee) organized a wonderful fashion show with all the clothes from Belks on Oct. 12. A luncheon was served at 12:45 and the show followed. There were numerous door prizes, very nice ones! There were 10 resident models and three men, Bob Nelson, Colin Halloway and Ed Beard served as waiters. Ursula Giffin, Joan Laliberty and Fern Eberly worked in the kitchen. Most all the decorations were made by Cindy Hutchins. Talented lady! I hope to have some pictures in the next column.SCN DanceThere will be a fall dance at the clubhouse on Nov. 16 at 8 p.m. It will be called The Solid Gold Fall Dance. Cost is $5. at the door. There will be 50/50 and refreshments will be served. Music will be by Al Sutphen. Please plan to attend!!!!Holidays coming upGosh, Thanksgiving is a month away! Where is the time going? I am not sure what to make this year..After 61 years of making turkey you would think I could think of something different!! Hanuklah begins Nov. 27. Veterans Day is Nov. 11. Lets remember all who served to protect our country. Our son was one of them. God bless them all!Again?Daylight saving time ends Nov. 3. Here we go again. We have 19 clocks! Maybe one day we will stay at one time. Works for Arizona and a few other states, why not here? Spruce Creek North was very saddened by the passing of so many of our residents this past year. Many clubs are active again in SCN..Euchre is back on Monday nights at 7, and Bingo is still on Tuesdays at about 6:30. I will have a report from the other clubs in my next column. Well folks..its good to be back writing for SCN and hope I can get some news from different residents. My column will be every other weekso see you then!Jan Liberio resides in Spruce Creek North with her hubby Jim and can be reached at JnLiber@aol.com or drop suggestions, etc., in the mailbox at the SCN clubhouse.Friday, October 25, 2013 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, October 25, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Icannot express how ecstatic I was when someone gave me a coupon for a free donut. Normally, I am not overly excited about free. All I had to do was fill out a little survey online and they would send me a code that would guarantee me a free donut. In my daily diary diet, I have a whole section devoted to the subject that when a forbidden food is free it cancels out all calories. When I first told the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage she looked at me rather strangely and said, Who said that? I know we are both getting old but we are not that old! I got close to her, waved my hand so she could see me and said, Its me. I just said it. Can you see me now? That is not funny. You know exactly what I meant. My grin drained from my face and I said to her, Well, I said it. Did, she said inquisitively, anybody ever say that before you said it? My wife has many talents, skills and gifts. It would be difficult for me to say which is her best gift but at the moment, her greatest skill is backing me into a corner. And in a corner I was thus backed. I then had to explain to her, in detail, how this was an observation I worked through with much research. This is an original with me and I am quite proud to be the author. All she said was, Huh, that is exactly what I thought. I will go to my grave believing when a donut is free it means it is free of calories. Call it what you will but free by any other name is still free in my personal dictionary. Getting back to my free donut. I was anxious to get to the donut shop, cash in the coupon and enjoy a donut. I do not know when the best time to eat a donut is, so I just started at my convenience. I got at the donut shop and walked in and the smell was overpowering. Nothing like the smell of donuts baking in the oven with a hint of coffee brewing in the background. I just stood there for a few seconds absorbing the luxury of this marvelous atmosphere. It is not often I can enjoy such luxuries, especially if my wife knows where I am. When I became adjusted to the ambience, I walked up to the counter and presented my coupon for a free donut.

I know I am not the most observant person at the circus. Many things get by me without noticing them. Sometimes I am just in deep thought and not aware of my surroundings. I can relate to Walter Mitty in many ways. There they were, freshly baked Apple Fritters. I was stunned. It just never crossed my mind that a donut shop would have this kind of delicious tidbit. But there they were. Freshly baked and staring at me with alluring eyes of desire. I do not know how much better a day can get than this. When I got up this morning, I did not realize this would be a wonderful day. There they were staring at me and I staring back and immediately there was a connection. Standing in line I could hardly wait for my turn to order. I presented my coupon for a free donut and the young woman behind the counter said, Which donut can I get for you, sir? I savored the moment, licked my drying lips and said, Ill have an Apple Fritter. With that said, I sighed a deep sigh of true contentment. Im sorry, sir, the young woman said. There is no need to be sorry, young lady, I said as cheerfully as I possibly could. No, sir, Im sorry but an Apple Fritter is not a donut. I can take a joke as well as anybody else. In fact, I have put forth my share of jokes. However, an Apple Fritter is no joking matter. Excuse me, I said almost breathlessly. An Apple Fritter is not a donut, so what donut would you like me to get for you? The thought began unfolding in my mind at this point that she was not joking. She sincerely believed an Apple Fritter was not a donut. I know an Apple Fritter is among the Cadillac of donuts but in my mind, it is still a donut. I did not have much opportunity to set this young woman straight with one of the great fundamentals of life. I had to take one of her free donuts along with my coffee, go to a corner and think about these things. What good is free if it is not really what you want? Sometimes people use the word free as a device to get you to a place where they can sell you something else. The Bible is the only place I will accept a free offer. One particular verse sets this forth quite nicely. And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32 KJV). This is often used out of context. The truth that makes us free indeed is none other than the truth about Jesus Christ. He is the only One capable of delivering something absolutely free.Rev. James L.

Friday, October 25, 2013 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, October 25, 2013 www.smcitizen.com FAMILY FEATURES This Halloween, throw a wickedly wonderful fete for family and friends. With help from the Wilton entertaining experts, youll have all the tricks to treat your guests to a spooky celebration that will leave them howling with delight. Halloweens not just for the kids anymore, so before you put on your costume, grab your baking and decorating supplies and get ready to let the creepy crawlers loose. Halloween is the one time of the year that you can take your decorating skills to the dark side, said Nancy Siler, vice president of consumer affairs at Wilton. From finishing pumpkin cookies with ghastly grins to creating creepy cakes decorated like graveyard skulls, its the perfect holiday to have some fun in the kitchen. Try these tips from the Wilton test kitchen for tasty and terrifying treats: Creepy Cupcakes: Transform tradi tional cupcakes into other worldly creations by decorating with eyeballs, spider webs or candy corn. Set up a decorating table during your Halloween party and let kids make their own creepy creations. Trick the Treat: Swap out the standard packaged treats for homemade sweets. Wrap cookies, pumpkin cake pops and lollipops in decorative party bags for a fearfully fun take-home treat. Mummy Wrap: Dress up your Halloween treats with themed baking cups. Pumpkins, mummies and ghosts are an instant way to give your party extra personality. Stack the Skulls: Turn the crouqueen-bouche, a popular French dessert, on its head by replacing cream puffs with mini-skeleton skulls. To increase the scare factor, mix in bone-shaped cookies and antique the treats with Candy Melts candy and Color Mist food color spray. Try these recipes for Pumpkin Cake Pops and Graveyard Crouque-en-Bouche for a spook-tacular Halloween party. For more unique decorating ideas and recipes visit www.wilton.com.

Friday, October 25, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, October 25, 2013 www.smcitizen.com EARTH TALK PHOTO BY ALAN C., COURTESY FLICKRAccording to the Climate Institute, the impact of the December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami was much greater in more developed sections of coastal Thailand where mangrove and coral reef loss preceded the natural disaster. E The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: What are the environmental risks associated with beach resorts? Shine Shoukkathali, via e-mail While they may put up with a lot of stress from wind, waves and weather, beaches and the coastal environments surrounding them are surprisingly fragile. The ecosystems which make up coastal areas have evolved over eons to their current natural states as to their geologic features and the types and distribution of native plants and animals that live there. When large numbers of humans move in, whether as full-time residents or vacationers, the dynamics of local ecosystems begin to change. If the growth is not managed well, this inundation with people can contribute to a wide range of environmental problems. For starters, development of any kind can scar ecosystems and seriously reduce or eliminate wildlife habitat. As houses, condos, shops, restaurants and other buildings begin to replace sand, grasses, trees and other natural features, the birds, fish and other wildlife that frequent such areas are forced to look elsewhere for suitable habitat if they can find any at all. An oft-repeated side effect of all this building is the removal of mangrove forests and sea grass meadowsimportant natural buffers against destructive waves from storms as well as important wildlife habitat. Other examples of coastal development gone awry include boardwalks or marinas built near or on top of coral reefs; beach-front houses, condos, hotels or golf courses replacing sand dunes and meadows; massive amounts of freshwater getting diverted from coastal rivers and streams for the benefit of tourists; and sea turtles scared off from nest sites. According to the Climate Institute, the impact of the December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami was much greater in more developed sections of coastal Thailand where mangrove and coral reef loss preceded the natural disaster. In the absence of these natural protective barriers, the giant wave carried its energy all the way to shore, killing over 250,000 people and causing billions of dollars of damage, reports the group. In areas where natural buffer zones remained, such as the Phang Nga province, inland territories were protected by large mangrove forest that dulled the waves impact and dissipated its energy. The indiscriminate conversion of natural shorelines and mangrove forest ecosystems for shrimp farming, urban settlements, tourism development and other often unregulated and unplanned human activities over the past several decades often make the coastal areas and its inhabitants much more vulnerable to the immense destructive force of the tsunamis, reports the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Likewise, the hurricanes that have battered the U.S. in recent years have been far more destructive than those previous, and many blame unrestrained coastal development. A significant chunk of the $200-billion-plus bill from the Katrina-Rita hurricanes might have been avoided if thered been tough, realistic plans to deter development in exposed coastal areas through buffer zones, wetlands protection, tough building codes and relocating settlements to higher land, reports the news service Common Dreams. The key to minimizing property damage and the loss of lives from such natural disasters may well be in what we allow to be developed. By now, most North American coastal regions have learned their lesson the hard way about the perils of unrestrained development, and new building codes now tend to be much tougher. But with coast-battering storms getting more frequent and intense, all bets are off as to whether our newer rules will be enough to protect beaches and surrounding coastal areas in decades to come.CONTACTS: Climate Institute, www.climate.org; WWF, www.panda.org.Dear EarthTalk: Whats the skinny on essential oils? I love them, but a friend told me they are no good for the environment. Mary M., via e-mail Essential oils are more popular than ever for medicinal and therapeutic purposes as well as in fragrances and flavorings for food and drinks. Typically produced by harvesting and distilling large amounts of various types of plant matter, essential oils are in many cases all-natural and can take the place of synthetic chemicals in many consumer applications. But some wonder whether our fascination with essential oils is so good for the planet, now that their popularity has turned them into big business. It often takes hundreds of pounds of plant material to make one pound of essential oil, reports aromatherapist and author Mindy Green of GreenScentsations.com. She adds that it takes 50-60 pounds of eucalyptus to produce one pound of eucalyptus oil, 200-250 pounds of lavender for one pound of lavender oil, 2,000 pounds of cypress for a pound of cypress oil and as many as 10,000 pounds of rose blossoms for one pound of rose oil. Production of these source crops takes place all over the world and is often organized by large multinational corporations with little regard for local economies or ecosystems. Growing the substantial quantities of plant material needed to produce essential oils results in a monoculture style of farming, with large swaths of land dedicated to a single species, says Green. These systems are most efficiently managed by intense mechanization, and irrigation is frequently used for optimal oil production of the plants. As global citizens we have not learned how to equitably distribute vital resources like food, and water resources are trending toward a crisis of the future, adds Green, so there are deep ethical concerns about devoting croplands to essential oils destined for use in candles, bath oils, perfumes, or lavish massage and spa purposes. Green also warns that many essential oils are not produced from sustainable sources. Some species are at risk, particularly those occupying marginal habitats such as dwindling tropical forests, she reports, adding that the poverty-stricken in developing countries will harvest and sell whatever they can, in order to put food on their own tables. Cropwatch, a non-profit that keeps tabs on the natural aromatics industry, maintains a list of wild species threatened by the fast-growing essential oil trade. Of particular concern are essential oils derived from rosewood, sandalwood, amyris, thyme, cedarwood, jatamansi, gentian, wormwood and cinnamon, among others, as they may well be derived from threatened and illegally harvested wild plant stocks.

fortably seated beside her boiling cauldron. Ah, yes, She muttered to herself. It would be nice to be able to sit for a spell.Vampire bitesA witch tells time by looking at her witch watch. One vampire said to another, Youve got to face the facts, your mother is really nothing but an old bat. When you fail to pay your exorcist you get repossessed. As they drove down the street the momma ghost said to the baby ghost, Buckle your sheet belt. When a ghost gets lost in the fog he is mist. If you donate your body to a medical school its known as a dead giveaway. At bedtime little witches love to hear the story of Ghoul Deluxe and the Three Scares. At the Halloween ball the ghosts danced sheet to sheet. The egotistical mummy was all wrapped up in himself. There are no famous skeletons because theyre a bunch of no bodies. The best place for a haunted house is on a dead end street. Last Halloween one kid showed up at the door dressed as an IRS agent. It was very authentic. He took 40 percent of the candy. Speaking ill of the dead is a grave mistake. If you cross a mad scientist with another mad scientist you get a horrible pair a doc. The vampire opened his savings account at a blood bank. When Dracula visits New York City, its always to the Vampire State Building. When the detective solved the case of the missing mummy he said, Well, that ones about all wrapped up! The ghost went into a bar for the boos.A bad spellTwo men were walking home after a Halloween party and decided to take a shortcut through the cemetery just for laughs. Right in the middle of the cemetery they were startled by a tap-tap-tapping noise coming from the misty shadows. Trembling with fear, they found an old man with a hammer and chisel, chipping away at one of the headstones. Holy cow, Mister, one of them said after catching his breath, You scared us half to death; we thought you were a ghost! What are you doing working here so late at night? Those fools! the old man grumbled. They misspelled my name!Yummy mummy talesA number of movies featuring the mummy have drawn enormous audiences who watch the action in Horrorscope. The mummys mummy was also an entertainer a famous gauza stripper. Off the silver screen the mummy isnt very popular with the other monsters. They think hes egotistical because hes all wrapped up in himself. Being interested in band ages, he loves music, his favorite style being wrap. He would love to take a vacation at the Dead Sea, but hes afraid that hell relax and unwind too much. A sign in the Egyptian funeral home says, Satisfaction guaranteed or your mummy back.Halloween nightThere are many tales about Halloween night in Oak Run. Mountain lions wander in from the Green Way, coyotes prowl and owls keep track of every moving thing by repeatedly asking who, who. It will certainly be a time for staying indoors.

This photo shows a recent class during a visit to the inmate work farm. A joint OPD/FBI task force investigated and arrested two women for Human Trafficking in early October. On Monday, Oct. 14, Melissa Rodriguez, 41, and Ysbette Joseph, 31, were booked into the Marion County Jail for Human Trafficking charges. The two were under investigation by a joint task force consisting of members of the Ocala Police Department (OPD) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). OPDs Detective Stephen Thibodeau and agents from the FBI, with assistance from the State Attorneys Office, had been investigating the two suspects listed above since April. Several meetings took place between Rodriguez, Joseph and a confidential human source (CHS) from April to October. Meetings were held at several locations in Ocala and once at a location in Orlando. During these meetings, both Rodriguez and Joseph are allegedly documented as having participated in the negotiations for the purchase of young females between the ages of 17 and 23. A down payment for the purchase of at least three young illegal females was paid in cash to the two by the CHS during the investigation, and they advised that the females would be delivered to an Ocala location. On Oct. 4, warrants were obtained for the arrests of Rodriguez and Joseph under the Ocala Police Department. The case was immediately sealed by court order so as not to compromise the investigation and the capture of Rodriguez and Joseph. On Oct. 9, the Metropolitan Bureau of Investigations (MBI) and the FBI out of Orlando were able to locate Rodriguez and take her into custody; she was booked into the Orange County Jail at that time.

Friday, October 25, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, October 25, 2013 www.smcitizen.com The Ocala Symphony Orchestra (OSO) will tell the story of Handels Messiah through the collaboration of several generations of classical music this holiday season. In its fourth year in Ocala, this special presentation will include the OSOs full orchestra, as well as its own community choir, boasting close to 150 musicians working together to make joyous music in celebration of the holiday spirit. The performance will be on Sunday, Nov. 24, at 3 p.m. at the Queen of Peace Catholic Church, 6455 S.W. State Road 200 in Ocala. The tickets are $15 and can be purchased at all CenterState Bank locations in Ocala, Lady Lake, and Belleview; at Village Ford in Belleview, and at Yours Truly Gift Shop (8449 S.W. State Road 200 in Ocala). Tickets can also be purchased by visiting www.ocalasymphony.com or by calling the OSO office at 352-351-1606. The premiere of Messiah, on April 13, 1742, was preceded by the London performance of Handels 43 operas. The disastrous opening of his last opera, Deidamia, combined with an English public growing tired of Italian opera, financial headaches, and temperamental divas, and his increasingly humanitarian views led Handel to the oratorio as an outlet for his compositional genius. Messiah is not an opera; it is a sacred oratorio, a large-scale vocal work with soloists, choir and orchestra, but without costumes or character interaction. However, it is OSOs music director, Maestro Matthew Wardells, viewpoint that Handels roots in opera and the stage should not be overlooked. Messiah tells the story of the birth, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, which ends with the redemption of mankind. No matter your personal beliefs or religious alignment, the story of Messiah set to music is exciting, moving and dramatic. Mozart, who himself re-scored Messiah for a larger orchestra, wrote that Handel knows better than any of us what will make an effect; when he chooses, he strikes like a thunderbolt. I encourage our audience to follow along closely with the text, to immerse themselves in Handels great work, and to allow themselves to be struck with the thunderbolt! exclaimed Maestro Wardell. The Ocala Symphony Orchestra is Marion Countys premier cultural arts organization. Founded in 1975, the orchestra averages a dozen concerts throughout the year in front of nearly 10,000 area citizens. Its mission is to play the highest caliber music that is performed by skilled musicians under the dynamic leadership of a brilliant and energetic music director, Maestro Matthew Wardell. It is driven to reach, entertain, and inspire audiences of all ages while serving the broadest group of constituents. The OSO aims to foster excellence in music education through collaborative partnerships with local resources. Continuing tradition: Handels Messiah returning to Ocala Performance scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 24, at 2 p.m. The Ocala Symphony Orchestra (OSO) turns up the heat with the exploration of Latin music, as part of the SoundArt collaboration with the Appleton Museum of Art, a special series which combines art and music. The concert will be at the Appleton Museum of Art at 3 p.m. on Nov. 3. The tickets cost $15 and can be purchased by visiting www.ocalasymphony.com, by calling 352-351-1606, or by visiting the Appleton Museum of Art at 4333 E. Silver Springs Blvd. OSO musicians Natasha Herrera, flute; Josh Ceballos, piano; Rickie Santiago, percussion; David Santiago, saxophone; Calvin Bond, bass; Ivan Trac, percussion will be playing an exciting collection of celebrated Latin tunes which are recognized in popular Latin ballroom dancing, including salsa, bolero, tango and more. Music selections for this performance include: El Manicero, Moises Simons (1889), considered by many to be the most famous piece of music created by a Cuban musician; Histoire de Tango, Astor Piazzolla (1921), which attempts to uncover the history and evolution of the tango in four movements: Bordello 1900, Caf 1930, Nightclub 1960, and Concert dAujourdhui; Cachita, Rafael Hernandez (1892), composed by one of the most important composers of Puerto Rican popular music during the 20th century; Sabor a M, lvaro Carrillo (1921), composed by a Mexican composer who primarily wrote boleros. The SoundArt concert series provides patrons with an intimate look at various genres of orchestral music, by bringing small ensembles of musicians to perform at the Appleton Museum of Arts auditorium. This series is an interactive experience, which enhances the personal connection that music offers by allowing patrons to ask questions about the music being performed. In addition to attending the concert, the purchase of a ticket to SoundArt includes entry to the museum.

Come bring your refreshments and either listen to the great sounds or dance to the music produced by this terrific group.Trivia ChallengeA lively group of dedicated trivialists gathered in the Clubhouse last Wednesday evening to test their knowledge of arcane subjects. This month was predominately about Halloween and the occult. Questions abounded on ghouls, goblins, and grinches. Fred MCd the questions provided by our usual Citizen editor John Everlove, the prevailing opinion of the group was that John deliberately chose to take off for Georgia to avoid defending his trivial questions, particularly the last one providing an American History lesson. Despite that, great fun was had and numerous laughs were in evidence, with the score spread for the competing being only five points from 1st to last. Winners this week were the Picky Ones (Trude, Peggy, and Marion) with the Islanders (Pia, TT, Rich & Ruth) and the Jets (Gene, Donna, and Jay) tying for 2nd place. The Cherrywood Trivialists have now contributed more than $400 to the Wounded Warrior Project. Next month the group will gather once again on Wednesday, Nov. 20, when Question Master Rich Downs will stimulate the little grey cells with trivia related to movies and entertainment. Just a hint, Question One will be who made the term little grey cells his watchword? Question Two will be is trivialist really a word and can it be used to score in Scrabble? Plan on joining us for a bit of lively fun in a game which no one takes seriously. From Fred OHernJohn is off visiting the prison camp at Andersonville, Georgia, so I am filling in for him. He has asked that I continue to encourage you, the readers, to support two worthy causes that will be going on while he is gone. The first, the Veterans Club Bowl-aThon and the second the Patriot Dog project. The Veterans Bowl-a-Thon is a major fund raiser for the Veterans Club and allows them 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 me at the Clubhouse 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 $2,500 to the Patriot Dog project. That is the cost of obtaining; maintaining and training a dog for a disabled veteran. The Veterans Club hopes to accomplish this goal by the first of the year. Already the club has put aside $200 toward this end. If possible, well 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 they 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 352-2371675 during normal business hours. My and Johns sincerest gratitude goes out to each of you for your support and compassion. If you have a comment or suggestion for the Cherrywood section of your Citizen Newspaper, please contact John at urperssec@yahoo.com. Hes always glad to hear from you; the reader.

This years Fun in the Sun Senior Games are Saturday, Nov. 2 from 10 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon. The teams of four people are competing for cash prizes and bragging rights that last an entire year. Gold, Silver and Bronze medals will go to the top three teams and the competition is fierce; well actually a lot less than fierce; more like funny. Each player on a team will compete in two of the four events scheduled which are: horseshoes; shuffleboard; bocce ball and last but not least, Wellie Wanging. 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. Well, it is really quite a simple game; the player picks up a garden boot and then throws it as far as he or she can. Whoever gets the furthest distance with the boot wins points. This sport is made a bit easier because no one is wearing the boot when it is thrown. If you would like to try your hand at Wellie Wanging come on down to the games and in-between competitions you can try your hand at this new game. We always have a great time at Fun in the Sun so plan to join us behind the clubhouse at our outstanding sports venue.Bowl-a-ThonFor the second year in a row the Cherrywood Bowling League in support of the Veterans Club is holding its annual Bowl-a-Thon fund raiser Oct. 28 at Galaxy Lanes West. 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 two 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 always welcome. Thus far the following businesses have signed up 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.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 is 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 who 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.

The food drive will begin on Nov. 5, and almost any unopened item not requiring refrigeration is welcome. Canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, cereal and peanut butter are all popular items; and hygiene products such as tooth paste and deodorant are always needed. Marion Landing has been conducting an annual food drive for many years; and last year, the community donated more than 1,000 pounds of goods.

This year, the food drive will run approximately four weeks, so lets do our best this year and help Interfaith provide packages to needy families for the holidays. Donations may be brought to the Lifestyle Center and placed in the baskets underneath the residents mail boxes or brought to any of the Tuesday Socials through Dec. 3. All donations are very much appreciated. Craft workshopLearn how to create beautiful ornaments using polymer clay in this new workshop. Polymer clay is a chemical compound that resembles natural clay. Polymer clay, however, is different from other types of modeling clay in that it can be baked in a home oven at a low temperature, which then hardens and cures your project so it will be around indefinitely!

The gala event ends with the murder of the host Zeus Kronons beautiful daughter Dita (short for Aphrodite). Pleading guilty to the crime is her boyfriend Cass Gianis whose identical twin Paul will never waver from declaring his brother innocent. Cass serves 25 years in prison and is released when his lawyer twin is running for mayor. Though the Gianis family is ready to get on with their lives Ditas powerful brother Hal wants vengeance. He insists that both brothers were implicated in his sisters murder. Ignoring his campaign managers advice Paul sues for slander even though a defamation suit subjects plaintiffs to a grilling investigation which no sensible politician should risk. Still, these courtroom scenes are the best parts of the novel especially in showing how a wily judge can nudge a case in a certain direction. Later, a rueful Paul, seeing the error of his ways, says, Ive been in enough courtrooms to know once you file, you lose control. I should have laughed it off and called Hal a right-wing goof. Turow lures readers into trying to solve the wrong puzzle. The pace is somewhat slow through the first half of the book as intricate family relationships are explored. Then the last part of the novel explodes with one surprise after another. Two likable peripheral figures round out the cast: Evon Miller, a former FBI agent in a tumultuous lesbian love affair; and 82year-old Tim Brodie, an appealing private investigator whose speech is often quaintIm suspicioning its true. And he has a dry sense of humor as when he reflects on an Gala Greek event ends in murder Bookmark Pat Wellington elderly womans attire: What illusions made her put on stretch pants. Turow fans should enjoy the return of Presumed Innocent characters like Sandy Stern and Ray Hargan. But Identical is not vintage Turow. The delayed action makes it only moderately satisfying. Mon.

This years drive will be led by Marion Landing resident Mary Ann Hall, who has been an active Interfaith volunteer for many years. The food drive will begin on Nov. 5, and almost any unopened item not requiring refrigeration is welcome. Canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, cereal and peanut butter are all popular items; and hygiene products such as tooth paste and deodorant are always needed.

This years Fun in the Sun Senior Games are Saturday, Nov. 2 from 10 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon. The teams of four people are competing for cash prizes and bragging rights that last an entire year. Gold, Silver and Bronze medals will go to the top three teams and the competition is fierce; well actually a lot less than fierce; more like funny. Each player on a team will compete in two of the four events scheduled which are: horseshoes; shuffleboard; bocce ball and last but not least, Wellie Wanging. 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. Well, it is really quite a simple game; the player picks up a garden boot and then throws it as far as he or she can. Whoever gets the furthest distance with the boot wins points. This sport is made a bit easier because no one is wearing the boot when it is thrown. If you would like to try your hand at Wellie Wanging come on down to the games and in-between competitions you can try your hand at this new game. We always have a great time at Fun in the Sun so plan to join us behind the clubhouse at our outstanding sports venue.Bowl-a-ThonFor the second year in a row the Cherrywood Bowling League in support of the Veterans Club is holding its annual Bowl-a-Thon fund raiser Oct. 28 at Galaxy Lanes West. 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 two 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 always welcome. Thus far the following businesses have signed up 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.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 is 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 who 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.

The premiere of Messiah, on April 13, 1742, was preceded by the London performance of Handels 43 operas. The disastrous opening of his last opera, Deidamia, combined with an English public growing tired of Italian opera, financial headaches, and temperamental divas, and his increasingly humanitarian views led Handel to the oratorio as an outlet for his compositional genius. Messiah is not an opera; it is a sacred oratorio, a large-scale vocal work with soloists, choir and orchestra, but without costumes or character interaction. However, it is OSOs music director, Maestro Matthew Wardells, viewpoint that Handels roots in opera and the stage should not be overlooked. Messiah tells the story of the birth, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, which ends with the redemption of mankind. No matter your personal beliefs or religious alignment, the story of Messiah set to music is exciting, moving and dramatic. Mozart, who himself re-scored Messiah for a larger orchestra, wrote that Handel knows better than any of us what will make an effect; when he chooses, he strikes like a thunderbolt. I encourage our audience to follow along closely with the text, to immerse themselves in Handels great work, and to allow themselves to be struck with the thunderbolt! exclaimed Maestro Wardell. The Ocala Symphony Orchestra is Marion Countys premier cultural arts organization. Founded in 1975, the orchestra averages a dozen concerts throughout the year in front of nearly 10,000 area citizens. Its mission is to play the highest caliber music that is performed by skilled musicians under the dynamic leadership of a brilliant and energetic music director, Maestro Matthew Wardell. It is driven to reach, entertain, and inspire audiences of all ages while serving the broadest group of constituents. The OSO aims to foster excellence in music education through collaborative partnerships with local resources. Continuing tradition: Handels Messiah returning to Ocala Performance scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 24, at 2 p.m. The Ocala Symphony Orchestra (OSO) turns up the heat with the exploration of Latin music, as part of the SoundArt collaboration with the Appleton Museum of Art, a special series which combines art and music.

Music selections for this performance include: El Manicero, Moises Simons (1889), considered by many to be the most famous piece of music created by a Cuban musician; Histoire de Tango, Astor Piazzolla (1921), which attempts to uncover the history and evolution of the tango in four movements: Bordello 1900, Caf 1930, Nightclub 1960, and Concert dAujourdhui; Cachita, Rafael Hernandez (1892), composed by one of the most important composers of Puerto Rican popular music during the 20th century; Sabor a M, lvaro Carrillo (1921), composed by a Mexican composer who primarily wrote boleros. The SoundArt concert series provides patrons with an intimate look at various genres of orchestral music, by bringing small ensembles of musicians to perform at the Appleton Museum of Arts auditorium. This series is an interactive experience, which enhances the personal connection that music offers by allowing patrons to ask questions about the music being performed. In addition to attending the concert, the purchase of a ticket to SoundArt includes entry to the museum.

This month was predominately about Halloween and the occult. Questions abounded on ghouls, goblins, and grinches. Fred MCd the questions provided by our usual Citizen editor John Everlove, the prevailing opinion of the group was that John deliberately chose to take off for Georgia to avoid defending his trivial questions, particularly the last one providing an American History lesson. Despite that, great fun was had and numerous laughs were in evidence, with the score spread for the competing being only five points from 1st to last. Winners this week were the Picky Ones (Trude, Peggy, and Marion) with the Islanders (Pia, TT, Rich & Ruth) and the Jets (Gene, Donna, and Jay) tying for 2nd place. The Cherrywood Trivialists have now contributed more than $400 to the Wounded Warrior Project. Next month the group will gather once again on Wednesday, Nov. 20, when Question Master Rich Downs will stimulate the little grey cells with trivia related to movies and entertainment. Just a hint, Question One will be who made the term little grey cells his watchword? Question Two will be is trivialist really a word and can it be used to score in Scrabble? Plan on joining us for a bit of lively fun in a game which no one takes seriously. From Fred OHernJohn is off visiting the prison camp at Andersonville, Georgia, so I am filling in for him. He has asked that I continue to encourage you, the readers, to support two worthy causes that will be going on while he is gone. The first, the Veterans Club Bowl-aThon and the second the Patriot Dog project. The Veterans Bowl-a-Thon is a major fund raiser for the Veterans Club and allows them 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 me at the Clubhouse 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 $2,500 to the Patriot Dog project. That is the cost of obtaining; maintaining and training a dog for a disabled veteran. The Veterans Club hopes to accomplish this goal by the first of the year. Already the club has put aside $200 toward this end. If possible, well 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 they 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 352-2371675 during normal business hours. My and Johns sincerest gratitude goes out to each of you for your support and compassion. If you have a comment or suggestion for the Cherrywood section of your Citizen Newspaper, please contact John at urperssec@yahoo.com. Hes always glad to hear from you; the reader.

This photo shows a recent class during a visit to the inmate work farm. A joint OPD/FBI task force investigated and arrested two women for Human Trafficking in early October. On Monday, Oct. 14, Melissa Rodriguez, 41, and Ysbette Joseph, 31, were booked into the Marion County Jail for Human Trafficking charges. The two were under investigation by a joint task force consisting of members of the Ocala Police Department (OPD) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). OPDs Detective Stephen Thibodeau and agents from the FBI, with assistance from the State Attorneys Office, had been investigating the two suspects listed above since April. Several meetings took place between Rodriguez, Joseph and a confidential human source (CHS) from April to October. Meetings were held at several locations in Ocala and once at a location in Orlando. During these meetings, both Rodriguez and Joseph are allegedly documented as having participated in the negotiations for the purchase of young females between the ages of 17 and 23. A down payment for the purchase of at least three young illegal females was paid in cash to the two by the CHS during the investigation, and they advised that the females would be delivered to an Ocala location. On Oct. 4, warrants were obtained for the arrests of Rodriguez and Joseph under the Ocala Police Department. The case was immediately sealed by court order so as not to compromise the investigation and the capture of Rodriguez and Joseph. On Oct. 9, the Metropolitan Bureau of Investigations (MBI) and the FBI out of Orlando were able to locate Rodriguez and take her into custody; she was booked into the Orange County Jail at that time. The FBI office in Ocala coordinated with the Levy County Sheriffs Office, who located and arrested Joseph on Oct. 10; she was booked into the Levy County Jail at that time. Both were transferred to the Marion County Jail on Oct. 14. This case has now been unsealed by court order, which has now made this information available for release.

fortably seated beside her boiling cauldron. Ah, yes, She muttered to herself. It would be nice to be able to sit for a spell.Vampire bitesA witch tells time by looking at her witch watch. One vampire said to another, Youve got to face the facts, your mother is really nothing but an old bat. When you fail to pay your exorcist you get repossessed. As they drove down the street the momma ghost said to the baby ghost, Buckle your sheet belt. When a ghost gets lost in the fog he is mist. If you donate your body to a medical school its known as a dead giveaway. At bedtime little witches love to hear the story of Ghoul Deluxe and the Three Scares. At the Halloween ball the ghosts danced sheet to sheet. The egotistical mummy was all wrapped up in himself. There are no famous skeletons because theyre a bunch of no bodies. The best place for a haunted house is on a dead end street. Last Halloween one kid showed up at the door dressed as an IRS agent. It was very authentic. He took 40 percent of the candy. Speaking ill of the dead is a grave mistake. If you cross a mad scientist with another mad scientist you get a horrible pair a doc. The vampire opened his savings account at a blood bank. When Dracula visits New York City, its always to the Vampire State Building. When the detective solved the case of the missing mummy he said, Well, that ones about all wrapped up! The ghost went into a bar for the boos.A bad spellTwo men were walking home after a Halloween party and decided to take a shortcut through the cemetery just for laughs. Right in the middle of the cemetery they were startled by a tap-tap-tapping noise coming from the misty shadows. Trembling with fear, they found an old man with a hammer and chisel, chipping away at one of the headstones. Holy cow, Mister, one of them said after catching his breath, You scared us half to death; we thought you were a ghost! What are you doing working here so late at night? Those fools! the old man grumbled. They misspelled my name!Yummy mummy talesA number of movies featuring the mummy have drawn enormous audiences who watch the action in Horrorscope. The mummys mummy was also an entertainer a famous gauza stripper. Off the silver screen the mummy isnt very popular with the other monsters. They think hes egotistical because hes all wrapped up in himself. Being interested in band ages, he loves music, his favorite style being wrap. He would love to take a vacation at the Dead Sea, but hes afraid that hell relax and unwind too much. A sign in the Egyptian funeral home says, Satisfaction guaranteed or your mummy back.Halloween nightThere are many tales about Halloween night in Oak Run. Mountain lions wander in from the Green Way, coyotes prowl and owls keep track of every moving thing by repeatedly asking who, who. It will certainly be a time for staying indoors.

Actually, Halloween is a distortion of its original name. A long ago butcher tradition was to give customers empty sausage skins at the end of October. This day was known as Hollow Weenie Day.Spell timeAfter a lifetime of hunching over her bubbling cauldron muttering incantations and concocting various enchanted brews, the witch finally came to the realization that she was no longer in her prime. In addition to the pronounced dowagers hump she had developed, her arthritic feet were an almost constant source of pain and torment for her. One evening as she began the tedious task of mincing up a fresh batch of bat tongues and newt eyes, an idea suddenly dawned upon her.

Friday, October 25, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, October 25, 2013 www.smcitizen.com EARTH TALK PHOTO BY ALAN C., COURTESY FLICKRAccording to the Climate Institute, the impact of the December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami was much greater in more developed sections of coastal Thailand where mangrove and coral reef loss preceded the natural disaster. E The Environmental MagazineDear EarthTalk: What are the environmental risks associated with beach resorts? Shine Shoukkathali, via e-mail While they may put up with a lot of stress from wind, waves and weather, beaches and the coastal environments surrounding them are surprisingly fragile. The ecosystems which make up coastal areas have evolved over eons to their current natural states as to their geologic features and the types and distribution of native plants and animals that live there. When large numbers of humans move in, whether as full-time residents or vacationers, the dynamics of local ecosystems begin to change. If the growth is not managed well, this inundation with people can contribute to a wide range of environmental problems. For starters, development of any kind can scar ecosystems and seriously reduce or eliminate wildlife habitat. As houses, condos, shops, restaurants and other buildings begin to replace sand, grasses, trees and other natural features, the birds, fish and other wildlife that frequent such areas are forced to look elsewhere for suitable habitat if they can find any at all. An oft-repeated side effect of all this building is the removal of mangrove forests and sea grass meadowsimportant natural buffers against destructive waves from storms as well as important wildlife habitat. Other examples of coastal development gone awry include boardwalks or marinas built near or on top of coral reefs; beach-front houses, condos, hotels or golf courses replacing sand dunes and meadows; massive amounts of freshwater getting diverted from coastal rivers and streams for the benefit of tourists; and sea turtles scared off from nest sites. According to the Climate Institute, the impact of the December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami was much greater in more developed sections of coastal Thailand where mangrove and coral reef loss preceded the natural disaster. In the absence of these natural protective barriers, the giant wave carried its energy all the way to shore, killing over 250,000 people and causing billions of dollars of damage, reports the group. In areas where natural buffer zones remained, such as the Phang Nga province, inland territories were protected by large mangrove forest that dulled the waves impact and dissipated its energy. The indiscriminate conversion of natural shorelines and mangrove forest ecosystems for shrimp farming, urban settlements, tourism development and other often unregulated and unplanned human activities over the past several decades often make the coastal areas and its inhabitants much more vulnerable to the immense destructive force of the tsunamis, reports the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Likewise, the hurricanes that have battered the U.S. in recent years have been far more destructive than those previous, and many blame unrestrained coastal development. A significant chunk of the $200-billion-plus bill from the Katrina-Rita hurricanes might have been avoided if thered been tough, realistic plans to deter development in exposed coastal areas through buffer zones, wetlands protection, tough building codes and relocating settlements to higher land, reports the news service Common Dreams. The key to minimizing property damage and the loss of lives from such natural disasters may well be in what we allow to be developed. By now, most North American coastal regions have learned their lesson the hard way about the perils of unrestrained development, and new building codes now tend to be much tougher. But with coast-battering storms getting more frequent and intense, all bets are off as to whether our newer rules will be enough to protect beaches and surrounding coastal areas in decades to come.CONTACTS: Climate Institute, www.climate.org; WWF, www.panda.org.Dear EarthTalk: Whats the skinny on essential oils? I love them, but a friend told me they are no good for the environment. Mary M., via e-mail Essential oils are more popular than ever for medicinal and therapeutic purposes as well as in fragrances and flavorings for food and drinks. Typically produced by harvesting and distilling large amounts of various types of plant matter, essential oils are in many cases all-natural and can take the place of synthetic chemicals in many consumer applications. But some wonder whether our fascination with essential oils is so good for the planet, now that their popularity has turned them into big business. It often takes hundreds of pounds of plant material to make one pound of essential oil, reports aromatherapist and author Mindy Green of GreenScentsations.com. She adds that it takes 50-60 pounds of eucalyptus to produce one pound of eucalyptus oil, 200-250 pounds of lavender for one pound of lavender oil, 2,000 pounds of cypress for a pound of cypress oil and as many as 10,000 pounds of rose blossoms for one pound of rose oil. Production of these source crops takes place all over the world and is often organized by large multinational corporations with little regard for local economies or ecosystems. Growing the substantial quantities of plant material needed to produce essential oils results in a monoculture style of farming, with large swaths of land dedicated to a single species, says Green. These systems are most efficiently managed by intense mechanization, and irrigation is frequently used for optimal oil production of the plants. As global citizens we have not learned how to equitably distribute vital resources like food, and water resources are trending toward a crisis of the future, adds Green, so there are deep ethical concerns about devoting croplands to essential oils destined for use in candles, bath oils, perfumes, or lavish massage and spa purposes. Green also warns that many essential oils are not produced from sustainable sources. Some species are at risk, particularly those occupying marginal habitats such as dwindling tropical forests, she reports, adding that the poverty-stricken in developing countries will harvest and sell whatever they can, in order to put food on their own tables. Cropwatch, a non-profit that keeps tabs on the natural aromatics industry, maintains a list of wild species threatened by the fast-growing essential oil trade. Of particular concern are essential oils derived from rosewood, sandalwood, amyris, thyme, cedarwood, jatamansi, gentian, wormwood and cinnamon, among others, as they may well be derived from threatened and illegally harvested wild plant stocks.

I know I am not the most observant person at the circus. Many things get by me without noticing them. Sometimes I am just in deep thought and not aware of my surroundings. I can relate to Walter Mitty in many ways. There they were, freshly baked Apple Fritters. I was stunned. It just never crossed my mind that a donut shop would have this kind of delicious tidbit. But there they were. Freshly baked and staring at me with alluring eyes of desire. I do not know how much better a day can get than this. When I got up this morning, I did not realize this would be a wonderful day. There they were staring at me and I staring back and immediately there was a connection. Standing in line I could hardly wait for my turn to order. I presented my coupon for a free donut and the young woman behind the counter said, Which donut can I get for you, sir? I savored the moment, licked my drying lips and said, Ill have an Apple Fritter. With that said, I sighed a deep sigh of true contentment. Im sorry, sir, the young woman said. There is no need to be sorry, young lady, I said as cheerfully as I possibly could. No, sir, Im sorry but an Apple Fritter is not a donut. I can take a joke as well as anybody else. In fact, I have put forth my share of jokes. However, an Apple Fritter is no joking matter. Excuse me, I said almost breathlessly. An Apple Fritter is not a donut, so what donut would you like me to get for you? The thought began unfolding in my mind at this point that she was not joking. She sincerely believed an Apple Fritter was not a donut. I know an Apple Fritter is among the Cadillac of donuts but in my mind, it is still a donut. I did not have much opportunity to set this young woman straight with one of the great fundamentals of life. I had to take one of her free donuts along with my coffee, go to a corner and think about these things. What good is free if it is not really what you want? Sometimes people use the word free as a device to get you to a place where they can sell you something else. The Bible is the only place I will accept a free offer. One particular verse sets this forth quite nicely. And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32 KJV). This is often used out of context. The truth that makes us free indeed is none other than the truth about Jesus Christ. He is the only One capable of delivering something absolutely free.Rev. James L.

Well, it has been over 15 months ago that I quit writing the Spruce Creek Norths column in the Citizen. The biggest reason I had to quit was due to my hubbys and my serious health problems. We had a very rough year but thank God now we are doing fine. So I called Jim Clark the Citizens editor, and asked if the job was still available and he said yes. So here I am, hoping to bring you some news from Spruce Creek North. You remember where we are? Right off of 103rd Street Road across from Cherrywood. Stop in and see us sometime.Garage Sales in SCNWe are having a community garage sale on Nov.1 and 2 (Friday and Saturday). It looks like a lot of residents signed up for this sale..(Lots of new residents have moved in) The sale is from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. This is usually a great sale with wonderful people selling clean, usable items, so make sure you mark your calendars. Barb Turner used to organize these sales for many years but sadly she had to move back up North. We thank her for her many years of service. Our manager Ray is organizing it this time so residents just pay him $2 for ads in the paper. The list of sales will be at the SCN clubhouse.Fashion ShowIf you missed it, Cindy Hutchins (President of the Social Committee) organized a wonderful fashion show with all the clothes from Belks on Oct. 12. A luncheon was served at 12:45 and the show followed. There were numerous door prizes, very nice ones! There were 10 resident models and three men, Bob Nelson, Colin Halloway and Ed Beard served as waiters. Ursula Giffin, Joan Laliberty and Fern Eberly worked in the kitchen. Most all the decorations were made by Cindy Hutchins. Talented lady! I hope to have some pictures in the next column.SCN DanceThere will be a fall dance at the clubhouse on Nov. 16 at 8 p.m. It will be called The Solid Gold Fall Dance. Cost is $5. at the door. There will be 50/50 and refreshments will be served. Music will be by Al Sutphen. Please plan to attend!!!!Holidays coming upGosh, Thanksgiving is a month away! Where is the time going? I am not sure what to make this year..After 61 years of making turkey you would think I could think of something different!! Hanuklah begins Nov. 27. Veterans Day is Nov. 11. Lets remember all who served to protect our country. Our son was one of them. God bless them all!Again?Daylight saving time ends Nov. 3. Here we go again. We have 19 clocks! Maybe one day we will stay at one time. Works for Arizona and a few other states, why not here? Spruce Creek North was very saddened by the passing of so many of our residents this past year. Many clubs are active again in SCN..Euchre is back on Monday nights at 7, and Bingo is still on Tuesdays at about 6:30. I will have a report from the other clubs in my next column. Well folks..its good to be back writing for SCN and hope I can get some news from different residents. My column will be every other weekso see you then!Jan Liberio resides in Spruce Creek North with her hubby Jim and can be reached at JnLiber@aol.com or drop suggestions, etc., in the mailbox at the SCN clubhouse.Friday, October 25, 2013 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, October 25, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Icannot express how ecstatic I was when someone gave me a coupon for a free donut. Normally, I am not overly excited about free. All I had to do was fill out a little survey online and they would send me a code that would guarantee me a free donut. In my daily diary diet, I have a whole section devoted to the subject that when a forbidden food is free it cancels out all calories. When I first told the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage she looked at me rather strangely and said, Who said that? I know we are both getting old but we are not that old! I got close to her, waved my hand so she could see me and said, Its me. I just said it. Can you see me now? That is not funny. You know exactly what I meant. My grin drained from my face and I said to her, Well, I said it. Did, she said inquisitively, anybody ever say that before you said it? My wife has many talents, skills and gifts. It would be difficult for me to say which is her best gift but at the moment, her greatest skill is backing me into a corner. And in a corner I was thus backed. I then had to explain to her, in detail, how this was an observation I worked through with much research. This is an original with me and I am quite proud to be the author. All she said was, Huh, that is exactly what I thought. I will go to my grave believing when a donut is free it means it is free of calories. Call it what you will but free by any other name is still free in my personal dictionary. Getting back to my free donut. I was anxious to get to the donut shop, cash in the coupon and enjoy a donut. I do not know when the best time to eat a donut is, so I just started at my convenience. I got at the donut shop and walked in and the smell was overpowering. Nothing like the smell of donuts baking in the oven with a hint of coffee brewing in the background. I just stood there for a few seconds absorbing the luxury of this marvelous atmosphere. It is not often I can enjoy such luxuries, especially if my wife knows where I am. When I became adjusted to the ambience, I walked up to the counter and presented my coupon for a free donut. Whats in a name, anyway? PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE11 Out to Pastor Rev.

TV Celebrity Chef Charles Mattocks, widely known as The Poor Chef, is on his way to Ocala as part of his hugely successful RV tour across America, and we invite you all to come down and pick up gift bags at our stops! On Monday, Oct.28, we will be at the Munroe Wound and Hyperbaric Center, 2124 S.W. 20th Place, Ocala from 9 a.m. to noon,, and in the afternoon between 2 and 5 p.m., we can be found at the Wound and Hyperbaric Center at 3300 S.W. 34th Ave., Suite 104, Ocala. When you come and meet Charles there is one thing you will notice straight away, and that is his captivating charm, enthusiasm and buzzing passion for what is taking him on this mission his desire to be the voice for a people so close to his heart diabetics, pre-diabetics and those trapped in a ever decreasing circle of healthy options to manage a disease that has reached global proportions! After first making his name on the Dr Oz Show by creating healthy yet affordable meals for under seven dollars, his passion for everyday good nutrition took the nation by storm, leading to appearances on The Today Show, Good Morning America, Dr. Oz, Martha Stewart and CNN. Further, he has taken his passion to paper, penning a best-selling cook book, Eat Cheap But Eat Well, and more recently this year a wonderfully fun and educational book especially for children and parents, Diabetes and Healthy Eating, which helps take the scary part out of dealing with diabetes for our kids. But theres so much more to this Chef like his famous uncle, the late, great Bob Marley, Charles is a champion for social change, and amid his media success Charles was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2011. What seemed initially like a death sentence turned into a personal mission to not only save his life, but also save the lives of others who shared his diagnosis. His awareness of this growing problem was only heightened when he had discussions with friends such as rap star Shorty Low, who was hospitalized for diabetes twice. Are you worried? asked Charles, but, despite its seriousness, the disturbing answer was no. Concerned by this complacent attitude, Charles became increasingly emotionally connected with people and families whose lives were greatly impacted by a condition that seemed to easily spiral out of control and these people were feeling trapped with no real solutions! Spurred on by this, his mission has taken him across the world with nutrition and pollution being global issues today, we see that some disease has no boundaries. Charles passion has seen him travel as far away as India and the Caribbean, and on these trips he has been motivated to make a film to educate and inspire diabetics around the world to make changes to their health by stressing good nutrition, lifestyle changes and raising glutathione to control inflammation. Charles has just returned from Jamaica where he has been filming with friends and family to be included in his upcoming reality TV Show Reversed, where we will follow people dealing with the stresses and struggles of these health challenges. This October will see Charles leaving Florida at the start of his second DiabetesTesting RV Tour, having teamed up with some great sponsors such as Great West Vans, Heal Together, Syntra 5 and Immunotec. Stops will include schools, hospitals and clinics where he and his team of professionals will answer questions about health and nutrition, discuss management options and also leave you with gift bags and maybe a bit more hope than you had at the start of the day a big part of his message is that a diabetic does have options, and education is the key! Not only to do the people of diabetes now have someone with a big heart and a generous spirit on their side, but also a great spokesperson for them in the medical and world arena with Charles representing the American Diabetes Association, a Blue Ribbon Champion for the International Diabetes Federation, the creator of the Charles Bar, a diabetic-friendly nutrition bar. We encourage you strongly to grab your kids, come down and meet Charles personally on his tour stops and learn how to protect yourselves and your children let some of his enthusiasm and fun rub off on you! Through inspiration and education as a result of the RV Tour TV shows and appearances, it is Charles hope that over 250,000,000 people will get tested for diabetes, as well as learn effective tools to manage diet and lifestyle. His movie The Diabetic You which is in the closing stages of filming, is designed to grab your attention it starts with a man with no teeth (later you see him being fitted with a beautiful new smile), but the point is made that if we do not educate ourselves about diet and nutrition, this can happen to us too! We encourage you to support him has he makes his way across the country, and tour dates can be found at http://diabeticyourvtour.com. More support sites include www.charlesmattocks.co m and http://www.immunotec.com/thepoorchef For any questions or to get in touch with Charles, please call 321-443-4064 or immunesupport@hotmail.com. Friday, October 25, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, October 25, 2013 www.smcitizen.com October 21, 2013In this MegaVote for Floridas 3 and 11 Congressional Districts:Recent Senate VotesContinuing Appropriations and Debt Limit Suspension Passage Vote Passed (81-18, 1 Not Voting) Senators approved a continuing appropriations resolution on Wednesday night, bringing an end to the 16-day partial government shutdown that began with the end of the federal fiscal year. The measure also extended the Treasurys ability to borrow to pay the nations debt obligations, avoiding a potentially-catastrophic default that loomed days later. The Senates leaders, Democrat Harry Reid of Nevada and Republican Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, hammered out the compromise early in the week after House Republicans failed to come to a consensus for their own plan. Their solution almost entirely avoided the issue of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, the implementation of which some conservative Republican senators had hoped to delay in exchange for restoring FY 2014 discretionary spending and raising the debt ceiling. The continuing resolution authorizes federal discretionary spending at levels established by sequester cuts, which amount to about $986 billion annually. Senators added about 3 billion dollars of additional spending to support natural disaster recovery, fight wildfires, and complete funding for a major dam and lock project on the Ohio River. It extended the Treasurys borrowing authority through Feb. 7, allowing the federal government to exceed the current statutory limit of $16.7 trillion on the national debt. The resolution also provided back pay for those federal and District of Columbia government workers who were furloughed after funds ran out on Oct. 1. To avoid the need to pass another continuing appropriations resolution in the absence of a new federal budget, the deal also required the House and Senate to form a budget conference committee. The body will have to iron out an agreement for the rest of Fiscal 2014 by Dec. 13. Republicans gained one small concession in the final package, as the bill also requires the Department of Health and Human Services to ensure it is verifying the income of individuals purchasing subsidized health insurance on its marketplace exchanges established by the Affordable Care Act.

Democratic Senator Bill Nelson voted YES Republican Senator Marco Rubio voted NORecent House VotesContinuing Appropriations and Debt Limit Suspension Motion to Concur Vote Passed (285-144, 3 Not Voting) House members voted late Wednesday to end the partial government shutdown by passing a continuing appropriations resolution to fund the government through Jan. 15, 2014. The vote receded amendments previously approved by the chamber and accepted a resolution to the standoff that Senators forged at the beginning of last week and passed hours before. President Obama signed the continuing resolution shortly after midnight on Oct. 17. House Republican leadership offered several proposals to end the government shutdown and raise the federal debt ceiling early last week. The GOP caucus, however, could not come to a consensus on which plan to support. Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, decided to accept the Senate compromise as the risk of a default on the national debt by the Treasury loomed ever closer last week. The resolution did not postpone implementation of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, the major target of House conservative Republicans in delaying FY 2014 funds and an extension of the Treasurys debt ceiling. During the final vote, 144 Republicans voted against the measure while only 87 supported it.

Friday, October 25, 2013 ~ 29 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 25, 2013 There is almost no reason for children to go trick-ortreating in neighborhoods any more. All you have to do is look at the agencies, businesses and churches that are holding Halloween celebrations this year, and you realize that children can dress up, go to one of these events accompanied by their parents, get their candy and return home safely. To be honest, I dont remember much about trick-or-treating when I was a kid, although Im sure I did it. We lived in suburban New Jersey, almost all houses around us, so it was probably a neighborhood thing. In many places now, though, two not-so-nice things have developed fear and greed. The greed finds people who bring a bunch of children in a car in costumes that took about two minutes to make, and they drop them off and let the kids go to strangers houses to get their greats. The fear comes from parents who really care about their childrens safeties. I can remember scares from needles in apples, etc., which is why individually wrapped candy is the only thing you should accept. Nowadays, I would worry more about doctored food items, particularly if your children go into a drug-infested neighborhood. Many agencies have listed the safety tips for Halloween, but it doesnt hurt to re-familiarize yourself with them. These come from the American Association of Pediatrics. A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds. If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home. Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat. Because pedestrian injuries are the most common injuries to children on Halloween, remind Trick-or-Treaters. Stay in a group and communicate where they will be going. Remember reflective tape for costumes and trick-or-treat bags. Carry a cellphone for quick communication. Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk. If no sidewalk is available, walk at the far edge of the roadway facing traffic. Never cut across yards or use alleys. Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks (as recognized by local custom). Never cross between parked cars or out driveways. Dont assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing Trick-or-Treaters. Just because one car stops, doesnt mean others will! Law enforcement authorities should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity. Lets all endeavor to make this a safe Halloween for children and drivers.

There were several things to take away from Mondays shooting at a middle school in Sparks, Nevada, including several comments that were made in connection with the tragedy. The shooter used a semi-automatic handgun, allegedly taken from his parents. The shooter was heard to ask, Why you people making fun of me, why you laughing at me? A teacher with military experience tried to stop him and was killed for his efforts, the only one besides the shooter to die. He is being hailed as a hero. A lot of the quotes coming from officials were statements such as You never think it will happen to you, and Things like that dont happen here. The shooters name is being withheld out of respect for his family. Lets go through these items one-by-one. First, the semi-automatic. While most true Americans agree with the right to bear arms, there comes a certain responsibility with that privilege. For people with children, its making sure that their kids cant get to their guns to do things like that. Was there some negligence in this case? Thats for the investigators to determine. Second, the boys comments. It makes it appear that he was being bullied, and this wouldnt be the first assailant who was in that position. Maybe someday the message will get through to bullies that when they pick on someone, they are putting their own lives in danger. Third, the teacher who was killed was trying to intervene. The shooter encountered the teacher, Michael Landsberry, who had a wife and two step-children, and shot him dead. In some cases when a shooter is challenged, he ends it all by shooting himself, and thats apparently what happened here. That would mean that the teacher may have saved many others. Fourth, weve heard those comments every time. People think they live in a quiet, safe community, and all of a sudden that tranquility is shattered and they realize that their safety has been compromised. What about you? Do you think you live in a community where something like this just cant happen.? Guess what we hope youre right, but you never know. Fifth, this is typical liberal nonsense the names of witnesses, children, are released, the name of the dead victim is released, but the name of the shooter is not. Weve said this before, our philosophy is to protect witnesses and victims, not the criminals. Respect for the family? They evidently made it easy for this kid to get his hands on a semi-automatic handgun. Who respects that? Also, doesnt Nevada have a public records law? So once again people are mourning, politicians are wringing their hands wondering what they can do, and parents are cautioning their children to be careful. Its just another sad episode in our violent culture. Hopefully, there wont be too many more. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Lessons from the latest shooting Be safe at organized Halloween events Liberals begin to feel the crush of Obamacare READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor BY MATT BARBER Special to the CitizenDisaster, embarrassment, humiliating and train wreck are just a few of the colorful terms being used to describe it. The Obama administrations incompetent half-billion-dollar rollout of its incompetent multitrillion-dollar signature achievement is but a tragic metaphor for this mans entire presidency. (Its not hyperbole when its true.) Nearly three weeks in and the utopian promise of affordable care for all has yielded but a handful of folks whove even been able to sign up for this clinic in socialism. That Obamacare something billed as a health-care panacea for the collective is something that the collective neither asked for, nor wanted, is now the back story. That it has failed so fantastically in every respect, has taken center stage. Reuters reports: In its third week of operations, the (Obamacare) website continues to experience problems, which government officials say they are working day and night to repair. Even allies of the Obama administration have been highly critical, with former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs calling it excruciatingly embarrassing and calling for some people to be fired. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., was both a sponsor of and cheerleader for Obamacare. He saw this coming. Once he read this 2,400-page regulatory monstrosity, he came to the same conclusion as did anyone else with two synapses to rub together. He called the implementation of Obamacare a huge train wreck and announced that, rather than resulting in his re-election, Obamas pet government health-care albatross would sink him into retirement. Still, the few who have somehow managed to enroll in Obamacare are discovering, to their dismay, what many of us have warned all along: There is nothing affordable about the paradoxically named Affordable Care Act. Though government geeks may be working day and night to fix the website, no amount of work will fix Obamacare itself. Its unfixable. The only solution is to total-out this jalopy. Even the Obamanistas are waking up. Just days before its launch, Politico lamented, The Obamacare that consumers will finally be able to sign up for next week (they werent) is a long way from the health plan President Barack Obama first pitched to the nation. Millions of low-income Americans wont receive coverage. Many workers at small businesses wont get a choice of insurance plans right away. Large employers wont need to provide insurance for another year. Far more states than expected wont run their own insurance marketplaces. And a growing number of workers wont get to keep their employer-provided coverage. The presidents like-minded base the hardcore left has also become restless. In a recent End of Day report, Gary Bauer, founder of Campaign for Working Families, gives one example from the leftwing Daily Kos. Bauer writes: Obamacares continued horrendous rollout (See next item) will likely cause the scales to fall from many eyes. Even some liberals are questioning Obamacare. We need to make sure that friends and family members who bought into the hype about hope and change know that it doesnt have to be this way. We can do better. The good news if you can call it that is that Obamacare is non-discriminating. Its putting the screws to every American rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, liberal and conservative. In the above-referenced Daily Kos piece, headlined Obamacare will double my monthly premium (according to Kaiser), liberal blogger Tirge Caps captures the shock experienced by most Americans even progressive Americans over the promise of Obamacare vs. the reality of Obamacare: My wife and I just got our updates from Kaiser telling us what our 2014 rates will be. Her monthly has been $168 this year, mine $150. We have a high deductible. We are generally healthy people who dont go to the doctor often. I barely ever go. The insurance is in case of a major catastrophe. Well, now, because of Obamacare, my wifes rate is going to $302 per month and mine is jumping to $284. I am canceling insurance for us and I am not paying any penalty. What the hell kind of reform is this? Oh, OK, if we qualify, we can get some government assistance. Great. So now I have to jump through another hoop to just chisel some of this off. And we dont qualify, anyway, so whats the point? I never felt too good about how this was passed and what it entailed, but I figured if it saved Americans money, I could go along with it. I dont know what to think now. This appears, in my experience, to not be a reform for the people. What am I missing? I realize I will probably get screamed at for posting this, but I cant imagine I am the PLEASESEEBARBER, PAGE11 000G8C0

The 6th Passport Show will take place on Saturday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m. at Palm Grove. Rick Starr (comedian) and Nicole Sasser (vocals and trumpet) will be another double program. Rich Starr draws upon his heritage, on his childhood experiences and family for most of his material. His humor is intended to be no more offensive to the conservative listener than that of late-night television. If you work clean, Starr says, you can work anywhere. Ricks warmth and charisma on stage have enabled him to charm audiences across the country. A number of ingredients go into Rick Starrs act. Theres a youthful innocence, theres a professionalism. Hes so good, he makes it all, timing, phrasing, delivery and attitude, look easy. Starr and his audience can be hysterical even before he finishes a gag. Nicole Sasser, whether singing or playing the trumpet, is an accomplished and exciting artist. Her vocal abilities allow her to tackle many different musical styles and she approaches each style with refreshing taste and sensibility. She has a lush and rich sound on trumpet and can dazzle you with her technique. Nicoles energetic and positive attitude makes her music come alive. It has been said, Starrs comedy is different, original, funny and unusual. Nicoles is a talent to watch and enjoy. Tickets go on sale Monday, Nov. 4, from 8 to 10 a.m. in the card room. Cost is $15 per person. All other ticket requests, please call Carol Forgette, 352873-3074. Open to Oak Run residents and their guests only. Please make your check payable to ORHA, no cash.Warning! Computer ScamsDavid Connelly, who offers computer help through Oak Runs Reach Out Program, would like to let the Oak Run community know about a computer scam. He recently received calls from someone saying that his computer is infected with a virus and they need to remove it. He knew these were not legitimate calls because the caller was unable to tell him which one of his computers is infected, and, David knew all his anti-virus software is up to date. He went to a womans house who received the same call but fortunately she was unable to understand what they wanted her to do and they did not gain access to her computer. Your columnist has heard of someone who responded to an ad offering to speed up your computer. Before it was all over she was out money and her computer was working slower than ever! It seems clear that you should not respond to telephone calls about your computer and the ads you see offering computer services should be viewed with suspicion. Do You Remember?

Hearing and Hearing Aid Pricing and Technology Disclosed Just the Lowest Price with th e Best Technology & Service What are Hearing Aid Channels and Bands? Two of the most important characteristics of hearing aids are Channels and Bands which are also some of the most misunderstood by users. To start off with, the number of channels or bands has nothing to do with the number of programs or volume settings. Sounds are processed and amplified by a hearing aid based on frequencies (or the pitch of a sound) and volumes. A peek at your audiogram will tell you how much amplification you need for any given frequency. In a nutshell, bands and channels thus determine how granular a hearing aid can process and amplify the sounds it perceives. To quote a great explanation from Philips: A band is what is used to control volume in different frequencies. This allows us to adjust more volume in a specific area of your hearing loss without effecting other areas where you might need less volume The more bands the hearing aid offers the more room we have to fit the aid to your hearing loss. Channels break up the frequency range into individual channels. This allows the hearing aid to differentiate noise from speech. The more channels the hearing aid has the more fine tuned it can be. For instance the sound of keys falling on a table, or water running in the sink may be overwhelming. When your hearing aid offers many channels we can adjust each frequency that is too loud without sacrificing the things you want to hear, like your spouse or boss. Thus, just the way a high-resolution picture gives you a sharper image, more bands and channels provide you with a more granular sound quality. More channels will provide better resolution on the frequencies and more bands will mean better resolution on the volume thus allowing your hearing aid to match your audiogram more accurately. www.nutechhearing.com M-F 9:00 to 4:00 p.m. Sat. and Sun.

This educational information is useful to clinicians, administrators, clergy, hospice/ palliative care staff, hospitals, long-term care and assisted living facilities. Continuing Education credits are available for a processing fee (includes 1/2-hour presentation following the video). To register, call 352-854-5230. Seminar emphasizes care for veterans Hospice, Munroe host free teleconference BY CAROL JONES Special to the CitizenThis past summer Wallace Barrett, known to nearly everyone as Wally, accepted the position of Branch Library Supervisor III of Freedom Public Library. Wally has a Bachelors degree in English Literature from the University of Florida and a Masters degree in Library and Information Science from Florida State University. Not only does he know the complexities of a library, hes no stranger in the kitchen. Wally worked seven years as a chef at the Haile Plantation Golf and Country Club in Gainesville until he decided to change professions. His library career began at the University of Florida Smathers Library as a circulation supervisor. He came to Marion County Public Library System as a Public Services Assistant at the Dunnellon Branch, then to the Freedom Branch as a Librarian II. All were stepping stones to his current position. When asked to share his vision for the future of Freedom Public Library, he responded, I hope to maintain Freedoms well set path as a hub of the community and excellent provider of resources to all of our patron communities. I hope to continually assess the needs of the community and respond accordingly. Of course it would be wonderful to see an expansion of the Freedom Library building, staff and resources.
