At the meeting Tuesday, Nov. 5, Sherry Evans spoke in the public input portion of the meeting, citing problems with trespassing into private property along the river. Saying she lives on the river, Evans said there are groups of people, sometimes 20, sometimes 50 at a time, that enter peoples property. She said that when she addresses the privacy issue with the intruders, Ive been cursed at, Ive been laughed at. She said a neighbor had been threatened with the burning of her house, another had a threat to kill a dog. Were all afraid. People are so disrespectful. She said she lives a distance away from launch points, and by the time they get there theyre intoxicated. Evans said that it has turned into spring break at Daytona Beach. She spoke about people taking the law into their own hands. Weve reached that frustration level. She complimented the Dunnellon police for their efforts, but added that when we call the sheriff, it takes 45 minutes for them to get there, and when they do, the people are on the river and the deputy says theres nothing he can do. Sometimes when we call at night, they never show up. She said that if the county doesnt have enough money, then lets charge 2 or 3 dollars extra to get a sheriff in the river. Outgoing Chairman Kathy Bryant, asked that the county administrator study the situation and report back. Earlier in the meeting, Carl Zalak was elected to be the next chairman, while Stan McClain will be vice chair. The county also set Thursday, Nov. 21 at 3 p.m. as the time for a workshop with the city of Ocala to discuss plans for a baseball stadium to host a New York Yankees Minor League team. 28~ Friday, November 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Rainbow revelers annoy residents Halloween at the Sheriffs Office The annual Halloween party at the Sheriffs substation on State Road 200 drew a large crowd.

SCNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 Monday is Veterans Day, a holiday to honor Americas veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on Nov. 11, the anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended World War I. Our trip down Pun Alley starts with a twenty-onepun solute to honor our veterans: A soldier never made it back to his base because he had driven his jeep into AWOL. When William joined the army he disliked the phrase fire at will. You would think that being a submarine captain would pay well, but I hear they cant keep their heads above water. The soldier who survived mustard gas and pepper spray is now a seasoned veteran. Trench warfare should always be a last ditch effort. A woman was in love with 20 soldiers. It was platoonic. An ex-sailor prefers to forget the days he spent playing cards in submarines, dismissing them as so much bridge under the water. At first the paratroops didnt obey orders, but finally they fell in line. The Junior NCO had sore wrists. The doctor said it was corporal tunnel syndrome. The General started bowling before his aide had entered his name on the score sheet. He had launched a pre-emptive strike. People who hate the Marines are rotten to the corps. A chaplain on the sea leads the soldiers in their warship. Army doctors are involved in big military operations. Only in America do we have a General in charge of the post office and a Secretary in charge of defense. The military head is seeking more arms. Yesterday I accidentally swallowed some food coloring. The doctor says Im OK, but I feel like Ive dyed a little inside. It was a brilliant idea to make army fatigues and army food the same color. A politician finally got to speak at a banquet where a general and an admiral had preceded him at unwonted length. The politician first words were that now he knew the true meaning of the phrase, The Army and Navy forever. Military cadet: Im a West Pointer. Unimpressed young lady: I dont care if youre an Irish setter. The army pastry chef was very smart. In college he was a member of Pie Baker Kappa. If you believe the saying that old soldiers fade away, try getting into your old Army uniform. All wetThree hillbillies on their first leave from the Army went to St. Louis on a weekend and stopped at the YMCA. After visiting the game rooms, they asked at the information desk what else the Y had to offer. Theres swimming in the basement, said the clerk. This seemed to impress them. They withdrew to a corner and got into a discussion. Finally one of them went back to the desk and said, Did I understand you that there was women in the basement?Heres the pitch It wasnt long before Captain Smith noticed that Sergeant Jones had almost a perfect record for insurance sales, which had never happened before. Rather than ask about this, the Captain stood in the back of the room and listened to Joness sales pitch. Jones explained the basics of the GI Insurance to the new recruits, and said, If you have GI Insurance and go into battle and are killed, the government has to pay $200,000 to your beneficiaries. If you dont have GI insurance, and you go into battle and get killed, the government has to pay only a maximum of $6000. Now, he concluded, which bunch do you think they are going to send into battle first? A 21-pun salute to vets Pun Alley Dick Frank PLEASESEEPUN, PAGE24 Harmony CornerBY PETER J. MUSELLA Special to the CitizenIts been a while but "Harmony Corner" is back. A lot has happened since last I wrote but I won't bore you with the details.

A personal matter needs your attention. LIB RA ( Sept. 23 to O ct. 22) You usually have no problem rushing to the defense of someone you perceive as being treated unjustly. But perceptions could be deceiving. Check the facts before you act. SCORP IO (Oct. 23 to N ov 21) Before you point fingers at who might be to blame for the unexpected change in your plans, take a few moments to reflect on how this turn of events might be a blessing in disguise.

There were audible gasps around the table, then some laughter, as his older brothers shared their disbelief that he could handle this new situation. Oh, come on, quit joking, snickered one. You didnt really do that, did you? You would never get through basic training, scoffed another. The new recruit looked to his mother for help, but she was just gazing at him.

EMPTY MANSIONS By Bill Dedman and Paul Clark Newell, Jr. When Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Bill Dedman needed a new house, he wandered, he says, a little out of his price range. In tony New Canaan, Connecticut a 29-room mansion had been reduced from $35 million to just $24 million. Complete with 11 fireplaces, 52 wooded acres, a river and a waterfall, the house had never been lived in since its sale in 1951. Inadvertently, Dedman had stumbled into the mysterious world of copper mining heiress Huguette Clark. Intrigued, Dedman teamed up with a distant cousin of Huguette to locate the reclusive multimillionaire and learn her story. The search began in 1991 when Dr. Henry Singman, an internist, made an emergency house call to a palatial apartment on Fifth Avenue. In the half-light, Singman came face-to-face with an apparitiona tiny woman about 85 in a soiled bathrobe suffering from several basal cell cancers, the left part of her lower lip missing, her right cheek with cavities, and deep ulcers exposing the orbital bone. He was looking at one of the worlds richest women, and her obsession with privacy had brought her to this state. He urges her to go immediately to the hospital. She agrees and then never leaves it for almost 20 years until her death at age 104. This biography, longer than it needs to be at 400 plus pages, is actually three stories in one. The first is the rags-to-riches account of how Huguettes father amassed a fortune through intelligence, drive, and hard work. W.A. Clark bought railroads and banks, an enviable art collection, and several mansions. But his spending was ostentatious and status seeking. Though he lacked nothing material his character was questionable. He bribed his way to a Senate seat amid protests. I never bought a man who wasnt for sale, he said unapologetically. His colleagues, determined to throw the rascal out, persuaded him to quit. The second story involves Huguettes mother, W.A.s second much younger wife Anna. With her, Clark fathered two girls, Andree and Huguette, when in his sixties. After Andrees death at 16 and later W.A.s demise, mother and surviving daughter became inseparable. In the last story a normal woman, devastated by her mothers death, slowly disintegrates into isolation and eccentricity. Her last days are spent playing with dolls, watching cartoons, and lavishing money on her nurses, one she made a millionaire, yet her mind was clear. Huguette is a puzzling figure and her life an enigma.

They made me feel very good that I was missed. Thanks again to all of you.WeatherThis has really been one hot, wet summer! I cant remember in over 12 years in Florida when its been so hot and wet. AND those LOVE BUGS! They were super awful this year! Guess they like the weather rainy and hot for their love-making..Oak Runs Elephant SaleMy hubby and I attended Oak Runs White Elephant sale on Oct. 5. We try to attend them twice a year. And each time we go we are impressed with the friendly people that are selling their items. Everything is always clean and usable. Also they have lunch at very reasonable prices. Their chicken salad croissant sandwiches are always excellent and also their seafood salad ones are equally good. Many desserts are available. All in all. A very nice day. Hopefully you can go to their next one.SCN Fashion ShowSCNs fashion show, which was on Oct. 12, produced some really nice pictures, two of which will accompany this column. One is of all the glamorous resident models and also those three handsome men that were waiters. Hats off to all of them, and to Cindy Hutchins for all the work she did to make it a success!Clubs and organizationsThere are many clubs and organizations in SCN. They have a wonderful craft club run by Marlene Dorner and her assistant Lois Conner. They meet every Wednesday at 9 a.m. They welcome new people and new ideas. Also there is a quilt club. Sandy Barsky and Delores Pecor lead this group every Friday at about noon. Plan to stop and get acquainted. We still have the Billiard Boys who play pool every day from Monday-Friday. Time from 2-5. By the way get well wishes go to Larry Guillet and hope he feels better real soon. Line-dancing has started up again with Joan Laliberty from 10:30-11:30 on Wednesdays.DanceDont forget the Solid Gold Fall Dance on Nov.16. Time is 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Price is $5. at the door.

Friday, November 8, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, November 8, 2013 BY MARY ELLEN POE, CEO Hospice of Marion County As the season of traditional family get-togethers approaches, the last thing on anyones mind would be having an end-of-life discussion. However, I would like to open that conversation right now and literally put this topic on the table the kitchen table. Surrounded by extended family in the warmth and ease of these annual rituals, there is no better time or place to talk about what you want should you become incapacitated, either from an accident or advancing illness. Encouraging people to have kitchen-table conversations is a stretch for most, given the gap between what we say and what we do. Polls show that 70 percent of Americans want to die at home in comfort among their loved ones, yet the same percentage actually dies in institutional settings*, often in the ICU under stressful circumstances. Eighty-two percent believe its important to put their wishes in writing, but only 23 percent have completed the task, although its as simple as filling out a two-page form. To help close the gap, I have some suggestions for this holiday season. Do the right thing. Be brave enough to talk to your family its the best gift you can give them, unburdening them from having to make tough decisions in a crisis rather than in a calm agreement. The first step is downloading a free Living Will from www.hospiceofmarion.com/advance-directives.html. No lawyer is required; only two witnesses and thoughtful consideration of your wishes. Make copies for your physician and each of those who will be in charge of your care if you cannot speak for yourself. The second step is to visit www.theconversationproject.org, a website that offers a Conversation Starter Kit. Its available in English and Spanish, and presents a user-friendly step-by-step process, preparing you for your sit-down and talking points when it comes time to speak up. It has the questions your family will likely ask, as well as the answers to reassure them. The guide also has tips for better communication with your physician and care providers, as well as personal stories of others to help you along the way. More and more, the families sitting around the kitchen table in Marion County are made up of the largest segment of the population the boomers. This age group spans 49 to 67 years old. In their youth, they were behind four social movements and three cultural revolutions (civil rights, feminist, ecology, war protest, religious, etc.). The boomers are major movers and shakers. They want it all and value good health, vibrant well-being and prosperity. Often this generation finds itself serving as caregivers for both their parents and eventually their spouses or other siblings. When illness strikes, they are the last to give in and seek all means to combat disease and old age. Thanks to advanced medical technology, we have a multitude of options. We can seek cures and treatments, whenever possible; extend survival, if its practical; and relieve pain, as needed. When a cure is no longer possible and extending life is not optimal, hospice offers an opportunity to change the dynamic. Accepting hospice care is not about giving up hope or giving in to illness it is a redefinition of hope. Hope shows up in as many forms as there are individuals and it changes with time. It can be an opportunity to complete life tasks, provide serenity in allowing others to carry some of our burden or it may evolve into a peaceful acceptance at the end of lifes journey. One of the biggest misconceptions about hospice is that it is that thing you do right at the end. Sadly, many people survive This past Sunday morning, if you turned on your television to a sports channel, you came across a bunch of people running. It was the New York City Marathon, which, of course, drew a lot more attention than usual because of the tragic finish of the Boston Marathon, where bombs went off and people died near the finish line. You knew that security would be tight, but still, there were a staggering number of entries and an equally impressive number of spectators, not afraid to show their support for the race and the runners. I watched the runners and said to myself, Why would you do this? I knew there are stories of individual accomplishment, etc., but I wondered if they considered what the long-range implications would be to their legs. When I was younger, I was a high school football and basketball official (most people incorrectly call all of us referees). On the days when I didnt have a game, I ran. It was about two miles a day, and when I lived in Palatka, I ran through a park of hills called Ravine State Gardens. Admission was free (not any more, its now a state park with an admission fee), and the 1.8-mile driving trail was closed at 4 p.m. and there were only pedestrians, both walkers and runners, allowed. I punished myself a little, but it paid off on game days, when I didnt run out of breath if a runner came around my side and went 80 yards (not that I had the speed to keep up with him), or if a basketball game went into double overtime with teams averaging 100 points each (only two officials on the court in those days). Later in life, though, my legs are paying for all that running, hindering not only running, but also, at times walking. If I had to do it all over again, Id find another way to get myself in shape for those games. So there I was on Sunday, watching the race. The biggest negative is that unless you followed running, you had no idea who these people were. As someone who was born in the Bronx, grew up in northern New Jersey and worked and drove in Manhattan and Queens for quite a while, it was interesting to watch. I thought the coverage didnt provide enough information about where the runners were. We knew they were in Brooklyn, then across a bridge onto First Avenue, and somehow ended up in the Bronx. I would have liked to have known if they were running through my old neighborhood or the area where I was born, but they never really said. The one bit of coverage I objected to was one announcer who ran a short distance to interview a Native American woman who was running. Shes using up energy answering questions instead of concentrating on the race. Shes obviously got a stronger constitution than I have I would have reached over and had that announcer swallowing his microphone. I was screaming at the TV, get that guy off the course. Of course, she probably gave her permission ahead of time, but still There was another group of people I would have liked to have heard from the cleanup crew. From time to time, the runners ran past a bunch of people in red parkas holding a drink out so the participants could grab a cup, take a swallow then throw the cup on the road. I wonder what the New York sanitation workers were thinking as they watched, knowing they would have to clean up the mess. I guess New Yorks anti-littering law was suspended for this race. Wheres Mayor Bloomberg and his stifling rules when you need them?Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen. He can be reached at editor@smcitizen.com or at 352-390-6444.

Do not use any other word processing programs. On Tuesday, the Marion County Commission chose Carl Zalak as its new chairman and Stan McClain as vice chair. Normally, chairmen serve one year, and thus Kathy Bryant has finished her term, and Zalak moved up from vice chair. This is the normal progression, and the vote on the motion to accept the two was unanimous we think. The one flaw in the process is that it was announced at the beginning that Zalak and McClain had received the needed votes from some sort of ballot. But the final vote count was never announced. Was it unanimous? We dont know. Apparently there was no problem this time, but that doesnt mean that this system couldnt be abused in the future. Someday down the road there could be a conflict among commissioners that could result in a tight vote. We need to set a standard where all votes are announced. That could prevent problems in the future. We have said in the past that the state statute that says a vote shall be recorded for each commissioner. We have pushed for a roll call on all votes, even though that would take a little time. Nowadays, almost everything is unanimous, but, again, it may not be that way in the future. We want to hear each commissioner say yea or nay so there is no doubt that where they stand in case it comes up in the future. Elsewhere in the meeting, Bryant announced that the food drive that was so successful on short notice last year will be repeated for a longer period of time. For the second straight year, the final drive will be on the Ocala Downtown Square on Dec. 6. Last year about 10,000 pounds was collected, and organizers hope to double the collection this season, trying to help the hungry in our community.

Friday, November 8, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, November 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com For some inexplicable reason, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is under the impression that my favorite hobby is flying kites. I have no idea where she got that notion. Last Thursday, for example, she said to me in one of her sterner voices, Why dont you just go and fly a kite? The joke, of course, is on her. Ha! That is not my hobby and I have not flown a kite since I was 9 years old when my mother made the same request. Who does she think I am? Benjamin Franklin? If she actually knew what my hobby was, I wonder if she would be so anxious for me to indulge. Some secrets are worth keeping. Two things guide me in my pursuit of life. I never fool around with fate and I never second-guess the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She suggested on Friday evening that we go out for supper. When younger I would have tried to figure out if she was up to something or if I was in some trouble, but not anymore. One of the great advantages of growing older is shedding the necessity of trying to figure everything out. Life has been much easier since I have started to live in the moment. So much in life is unexplainable that I have stopped wasting my time trying to explain it. Moreover, the greatest thing is, I am not under any pressure to understand everything or figure anything out, especially when it comes to the female side of the matrimonial equation. Let the mystery of romance do its thing. Just one thing, in spite of everything, still bothers me. I know it may be a minor matter to most people, but for me it is important. Do I have to pray for everything? On Friday, my wife and I made our way to our favorite restaurant and to our great delight, our favorite waitress was on duty and we requested her table. Stay with a sure thing, I always say. After our first cup of coffee, we were ready to contemplate our order. It is not good to order your meal right away; get settled in your seat, have a good cup of coffee and then decide on the meal for the evening. I chose the delicious meat loaf dinner while my better half ordered the pot roast. Both came with what our waitress called a vegetable medley. Let it be known that a vegetable medley was not harmonious with my primeval appetite. With an air of masculine sophistication, I ordered the vegetable of the day. It was too lovely of an evening to get hung up on such small matters. After all, I was unwinding and did not need to put my little gray cells in high gear. Taking our order, our waitress disappeared into the kitchen while we sat back to enjoy each others society while our meal was being prepared. Luxury, in my book, is where you find it. After a busy week in the church, it is always beneficial to settle back and relax. Nothing is more important than getting balance in life and keeping it. Before we knew it, the waitress brought our meals and set them before us. Much to my surprise, the vegetable of the day was broccoli. The waitress quickly disappeared amid some unsuccessful muffled giggling from across the table. Gaining some measure of composure, my wife requested I offer the prayer for the meal. My question: does God really expect me to pray for broccoli? I was reminded of an incident with my good friend and spiritual mentor, the Rev. Frank Simmons. After a Sunday morning service, a woman approached Frank with a simple request. Oh, Brother Simmons, she said in a dramatic fashion that always irritated Frank, would you pray that my daughter gets married? Without giving her request any thought, he replied in the negative. The thing I always liked about good ole Brother Simmons was that he was always Frank. Why wont you pray for my daughter, demanded the woman. Well, Frank said, tell me something. Does she have any special friend? Is she dating? Frank later told me that many people want God to do everything for them. There is plenty for us to do, he said with a mischievous grin. Of course, Frank firmly believed in prayer but he also believed people have personal responsibility in their lives. So many blame God for the bad in their life. Then when they get in trouble, they Does God expect me to pray for broccoli? Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE11 The Marion Landing Fall Sale will take place tomorrow, Saturday, Nov. 9, from 8 a.m. to noon.

One of Franks favorite sayings was, Many folk sow their wild oats Saturday night and then Sunday morning pray for crop failure. Some things should not be a matter of prayer but of simple obedience. Prayer is no substitute for action. In fact, in some cases it is not in order to pray. For example, it is wrong to pray about anything clearly forbidden in the Bible. I do not have to pray about hating somebody. It is always wrong to hate and no amount of prayer could ever change that fact. The apostle James set this forth rather clearly in his epistle. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16 KJV). No prayer is worth praying if it is prayed outside of that righteous zone.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

West Marion Moose Lodge 2356 activities There will be volunteers from the VFW Post selling Buddy Poppies at various locations in our community. Many people will put a donation in the jar and proudly wear the Poppy. We are beginning a project in cooperation with Patriot Dogs to bring a service dog into the life of a disabled veteran. This is a long and costly process but well worth the effort as we make a huge difference in the quality of life for a disabled patriot. These things and more will be on my mind as I look up at Old Glory and salute when the National Anthem is played. I know there will be a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye when Taps is sounded and I remember fallen heroes; there always is. This year however, I will feel a great sense of pride in the residents of Cherrywood for what they have done over the past 12 months helping our club and its veterans. I am proud of the people and businesses of Marion County for their response to our call for support and lastly, in the Veterans Club for its leadership in service. Under President Bill Mahar; Treasurer Rich Hurley; Sgt at Arms Marty Duesel; Vice President Joe Gignac; and with the support of the members, we have touched the lives of many veterans this past year. On this Veterans Day, let us pledge to help even more. To all who wore or are wearing the uniform of our nation, thank you for your service; may God bless you and may God bless the United States of America.

CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Thanksgiving is almost here and we are looking forward to spending time with family and friends. And then, here comes Christmas! Very soon you will be hearing the Oak Run Troubadours singing the songs of Christmas at the Ambassadors annual Christmas tree trim. This year it will be held on Saturday, Dec. 7, at 1 p.m. at Palm Grove. The tree trim has taken place in Oak Run on a Sunday for many, many years. However, the change to Saturday this year was made to avoid conflict with other church and community programs. The Troubadours have been working diligently to bring you a wonderful program. Songs such as Ill Be Home for Christmas, The 12 Days of Christmas, The Colors of Christmas, a magnificent arrangement of carols called Rejoice, and many more will be sung, including The Chanukah Song. So plan to come and enjoy a lovely and relaxing afternoon with your friends and neighbors on Saturday, Dec. 7. It will get you in the Christmas spirit and bring you into this special season of the year. Recently our beloved piano accompanist, Margaret Elder, had to resign from Troubadours. Margaret has been with us for nine years, the first two years as co-accompanist and from 2006 on as our only accompanist. She is a very talented and dedicated lady and her expertise in music is amazing. We have great respect and admiration for Margaret and she will surely be missed. We wish her the best. To jump ahead, after Christmas the Troubadours will begin their practice Thursday, Jan. 9, at Palm Grove for their April annual Spring Concert. If you are interested in singing whether soprano, alto, tenor or bass please contact Mary Beth Lake at 352-873-8787.

Many of us will have family in town at that time and there is no better place to take them for an evening of musical entertainment than the clubhouse at Cherrywood for the Accordion Club. There is no admission charge and guests are welcome to bring their own refreshments; liquid and otherwise. Bring your friends and family members out for a great time of listening and dancing to the wide variety of tunes played by our Accordion Club members. The music starts at 5:30 and runs until 9 so come out and hear music played by beginners and experienced professionals and every level in between. November 22; dont forget. Oil PaintingHave you ever thought about oil painting but dont know if you have the knack for it? If youve ever had a desire to learn this beautiful art form now is the time to contact Geri and sign up for Debbie Blackburns class on Nov 20. Beginning at 8:30 a.m. Debbie will take you through the steps of creating a beautiful fall landscaping scene on canvas. She is an excellent instructor with years of experience and tons of patience. Debbie leads her students in the step by step process of taking vibrant colors and transforming them into a wonderful work of art. No matter what your level of interest or abilities, you will be amazed and astounded by the finished product you will achieve. Your painting will make a wonderful gift for that special some one on your holiday list or be a beautiful addition to your home decor. Just another point about how special an instructor Debbie is; she is turning over the proceeds of the class fees to our Toys for Tots project. Contact Geri for all the details but dont miss out on this opportunity to see how far your talent can take you.Toys for TotsEach year the U.S. Marine Corps hosts the Toys for Tots campaign to bring gifts to the needy little ones at Christmas. This year Cherrywood Estates is join in by placing a huge receptacle in the lobby of the clubhouse. We are hoping that every resident will see fit to pick up an unwrapped new toy and place it in the bin.SongbirdsDo you like to sing along with the radio in the car; sing in the shower; sing as you do your daily chores? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then come out to the clubhouse at 2 p.m. on Wednesdays to join your voice with that of our Songbirds. Aprile Guglielmi, president of the Songbirds, invites everyone with an interest in singing to come out and join the group as they learn new songs together and develop their talents. Vincent Basile is the director of the Songbirds. Classically trained, Vince has performed professionally in New York at several opera companies and is a Veteran of the US Navy. He will bring out the best in you and make you feel good about what you are doing. Our Songbirds will be performing at the Veterans Day ceremony in our Clubhouse on Nov. 11 so purchase a lunch ticket and come hear them in person. In addition, the Songbirds provide entertainment at several venues throughout the community including assisted living facilities; shopping malls and nursing homes as well as special events. If you would like to see about having the Songbirds perform at your facility or function, contact Aprile at 352-237-0924. Ladies LunchAll of our Cherrywood ladies are invited to come out and enjoy a good meal and great conversation on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at noon. Bring your favorite dish to pass and a place setting for yourself and sit down to casual, friendly meal with other beautiful people like yourself. These luncheons are always well attended and provide our ladies with a chance to relax and share experiences and interests with each other. You dont need a ticket so just be there for a fun time.Garden ClubThe Cherrywood Garden Club will be meeting on the patio on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 10 a.m. Come join in and learn about everything green that grows in Florida. Subjects for discussion include lawns and shrubs; flowers and garden arrangements; water features and cacti. In addition to sharing their knowledge and experiences the Garden Club also has guest speakers and field trips so that members can learn even more about caring for their grounds. Membership is free so just come on down to the clubhouse and join your fellow gardeners on the patio for an informative and enjoyable session.From Your ReporterOn this upcoming Veterans Day, I will be with friends and family at our clubhouse as we honor those who have served and are serving this Nation of ours. There is a temptation as I write this to lament the lack of patriotism on this day; the fact that little if any history is taught in our public schools anymore; or the fact that most of our politicians have never served in the military. This year I resist that temptation as I look around me. We just completed a successful Bowl a Thon benefit for our Veterans Club. It was successful because our bowling league and nearly a score of businesses in our community cared enough to step up and support us. At our Veterans Club meeting, we will honor Norellen and Edward Pickell for sending over a ton of goodies to our troops overseas. For a dozen years they and their helpers have cared for and provided for our troops in harms way. At our Veterans Day service, guest speaker Al Morrison from Ritz House for Homeless Veterans will share a few of the success stories about Vets getting off the streets and into schools; the trades; apprentice programs and the like. Men and women turning their lives around with help from people like the Cherrywood Veterans Club and the residents of Cherrywood.Friday, November 8, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, November 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Join the Cherrywood Veterans Club on Monday, Nov. 11 at 11 in the morning as we observe Veterans Day, 2013. The service begins with the National Anthem and ends with a Celebration of America luncheon in the clubhouse. On hand will be our Color Guard; the Officers of the Veterans Club; and guest speaker Al Morrison. Al is a Marine Veteran and Resident Manager of Ritz House for Homeless Veterans. Music will be provided by our own Richard Becotte with a special appearance inside by the Cherrywood Songbirds The outdoor service takes place in front of the clubhouse and is open to everyone who wishes to take a few moments to honor those who have served and are serving our nation. Immediately following the service, ticket holders will retire into the clubhouse where they will be entertained by our Songbirds and partake of the excellent picnic foods being served. Hamburgers; hot dogs; potato salad and beans will be in abundance as will a light dessert; lemonade and iced tea. Of course if you wish a stronger beverage, feel free to bring that along also. Tickets are required for the meal and can be purchased from Geri in the office or any officer of the Veterans Club for only $7 each. A gift basket will be raffled off as well as 50/50 drawings. Come join us as we celebrate America and those who have defended it over the years. Senior Games at CherrywoodRain clouds tried in vain to dampen our Fun in the Sun Senior Games on Saturday but while the weather may have taken the Sun part out of the equation; the teams and spectators managed to keep the Fun half in full. Fierce and joyous competitions among our 10 teams put an excitement and thrill in the mild damp air as each vied for medals; prizes and bragging rights. Though the crowd of on lookers was fewer than normal because of the weather, their enthusiasm made up for their lack of numbers. Cheers and encouragement met each team member as they excelled in their Veterans Day at Cherrywood Cherrywood John Everlove PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 Third place: Ruth Hurley; Eve Houghtaling; Christl Giovanniello and Norma Alexander.

games and of course, laughter and jokes met with those whose athletic feats were not quite up to par. In some cases, Athletic feats were more like athletes feet; but never the less, everyone had a great time. Some of the loudest cheers and raucous laughter was heard at the Wellie Wanging court where contestants attempted to throw a boot as far as possible for points. Yes, this really is a sport with rules and such. Some boots came close to spectators; some went out of bounds and one even landed on the roof but our Wangers had a blast as did the crowd watching them. At the end of the day, Daves Angels took first place in the events and were awarded the gold medals. Dave Bragdon and his angels; Holly Bragdon, T.T. Torrusio and Pia Dean will enjoy bragging rights until next year. The Awesome Foursome made up of Marti and Marty Duesel and Bill and Sandy Brotherhood took Silver for second place. Our Bronze medalists for Third place were the Upstarts made up of Ruth Hurley; Eve Houghtaling; Christl Giovanniello and Norma Alexander. Congratulations to all of our winners and players who made these games so much fun. Our CERT team was on hand to provide an information booth encouraging new people to become a part of this vital organization. Thanks to Dave Siegel and his team for being there in support of our athletes. We also want to thank our Social Committee that volunteered as referees; judges and helped out in the kitchen providing hot dogs; bratwurst and drinks. Lastly, we are very appreciative to Chris and Mario Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management for sponsoring this Fun in the Sun event. Everyone that came out had a terrific time.

There is no admission charge and guests are welcome to bring their own refreshments; liquid and otherwise. Bring your friends and family members out for a great time of listening and dancing to the wide variety of tunes played by our Accordion Club members. The music starts at 5:30 and runs until 9 so come out and hear music played by beginners and experienced professionals and every level in between. November 22; dont forget. Oil PaintingHave you ever thought about oil painting but dont know if you have the knack for it? If youve ever had a desire to learn this beautiful art form now is the time to contact Geri and sign up for Debbie Blackburns class on Nov 20. Beginning at 8:30 a.m. Debbie will take you through the steps of creating a beautiful fall landscaping scene on canvas. She is an excellent instructor with years of experience and tons of patience. Debbie leads her students in the step by step process of taking vibrant colors and transforming them into a wonderful work of art. No matter what your level of interest or abilities, you will be amazed and astounded by the finished product you will achieve. Your painting will make a wonderful gift for that special some one on your holiday list or be a beautiful addition to your home decor. Just another point about how special an instructor Debbie is; she is turning over the proceeds of the class fees to our Toys for Tots project. Contact Geri for all the details but dont miss out on this opportunity to see how far your talent can take you.Toys for TotsEach year the U.S. Marine Corps hosts the Toys for Tots campaign to bring gifts to the needy little ones at Christmas. This year Cherrywood Estates is join in by placing a huge receptacle in the lobby of the clubhouse. We are hoping that every resident will see fit to pick up an unwrapped new toy and place it in the bin.SongbirdsDo you like to sing along with the radio in the car; sing in the shower; sing as you do your daily chores? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then come out to the clubhouse at 2 p.m. on Wednesdays to join your voice with that of our Songbirds. Aprile Guglielmi, president of the Songbirds, invites everyone with an interest in singing to come out and join the group as they learn new songs together and develop their talents. Vincent Basile is the director of the Songbirds. Classically trained, Vince has performed professionally in New York at several opera companies and is a Veteran of the US Navy. He will bring out the best in you and make you feel good about what you are doing. Our Songbirds will be performing at the Veterans Day ceremony in our Clubhouse on Nov. 11 so purchase a lunch ticket and come hear them in person. In addition, the Songbirds provide entertainment at several venues throughout the community including assisted living facilities; shopping malls and nursing homes as well as special events. If you would like to see about having the Songbirds perform at your facility or function, contact Aprile at 352-237-0924. Ladies LunchAll of our Cherrywood ladies are invited to come out and enjoy a good meal and great conversation on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at noon. Bring your favorite dish to pass and a place setting for yourself and sit down to casual, friendly meal with other beautiful people like yourself. These luncheons are always well attended and provide our ladies with a chance to relax and share experiences and interests with each other. You dont need a ticket so just be there for a fun time.Garden ClubThe Cherrywood Garden Club will be meeting on the patio on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 10 a.m. Come join in and learn about everything green that grows in Florida. Subjects for discussion include lawns and shrubs; flowers and garden arrangements; water features and cacti. In addition to sharing their knowledge and experiences the Garden Club also has guest speakers and field trips so that members can learn even more about caring for their grounds. Membership is free so just come on down to the clubhouse and join your fellow gardeners on the patio for an informative and enjoyable session.From Your ReporterOn this upcoming Veterans Day, I will be with friends and family at our clubhouse as we honor those who have served and are serving this Nation of ours. There is a temptation as I write this to lament the lack of patriotism on this day; the fact that little if any history is taught in our public schools anymore; or the fact that most of our politicians have never served in the military. This year I resist that temptation as I look around me. We just completed a successful Bowl a Thon benefit for our Veterans Club. It was successful because our bowling league and nearly a score of businesses in our community cared enough to step up and support us. At our Veterans Club meeting, we will honor Norellen and Edward Pickell for sending over a ton of goodies to our troops overseas. For a dozen years they and their helpers have cared for and provided for our troops in harms way. At our Veterans Day service, guest speaker Al Morrison from Ritz House for Homeless Veterans will share a few of the success stories about Vets getting off the streets and into schools; the trades; apprentice programs and the like. Men and women turning their lives around with help from people like the Cherrywood Veterans Club and the residents of Cherrywood.Friday, November 8, 2013 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, November 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Join the Cherrywood Veterans Club on Monday, Nov. 11 at 11 in the morning as we observe Veterans Day, 2013.

Music will be provided by our own Richard Becotte with a special appearance inside by the Cherrywood Songbirds The outdoor service takes place in front of the clubhouse and is open to everyone who wishes to take a few moments to honor those who have served and are serving our nation. Immediately following the service, ticket holders will retire into the clubhouse where they will be entertained by our Songbirds and partake of the excellent picnic foods being served. Hamburgers; hot dogs; potato salad and beans will be in abundance as will a light dessert; lemonade and iced tea. Of course if you wish a stronger beverage, feel free to bring that along also. Tickets are required for the meal and can be purchased from Geri in the office or any officer of the Veterans Club for only $7 each. A gift basket will be raffled off as well as 50/50 drawings. Come join us as we celebrate America and those who have defended it over the years. Senior Games at CherrywoodRain clouds tried in vain to dampen our Fun in the Sun Senior Games on Saturday but while the weather may have taken the Sun part out of the equation; the teams and spectators managed to keep the Fun half in full. Fierce and joyous competitions among our 10 teams put an excitement and thrill in the mild damp air as each vied for medals; prizes and bragging rights. Though the crowd of on lookers was fewer than normal because of the weather, their enthusiasm made up for their lack of numbers. Cheers and encouragement met each team member as they excelled in their Veterans Day at Cherrywood Cherrywood John Everlove PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 Third place: Ruth Hurley; Eve Houghtaling; Christl Giovanniello and Norma Alexander.

West Marion Moose Lodge 2356 activities There will be volunteers from the VFW Post selling Buddy Poppies at various locations in our community. Many people will put a donation in the jar and proudly wear the Poppy. We are beginning a project in cooperation with Patriot Dogs to bring a service dog into the life of a disabled veteran. This is a long and costly process but well worth the effort as we make a huge difference in the quality of life for a disabled patriot. These things and more will be on my mind as I look up at Old Glory and salute when the National Anthem is played. I know there will be a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye when Taps is sounded and I remember fallen heroes; there always is. This year however, I will feel a great sense of pride in the residents of Cherrywood for what they have done over the past 12 months helping our club and its veterans. I am proud of the people and businesses of Marion County for their response to our call for support and lastly, in the Veterans Club for its leadership in service. Under President Bill Mahar; Treasurer Rich Hurley; Sgt at Arms Marty Duesel; Vice President Joe Gignac; and with the support of the members, we have touched the lives of many veterans this past year. On this Veterans Day, let us pledge to help even more. To all who wore or are wearing the uniform of our nation, thank you for your service; may God bless you and may God bless the United States of America.

CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Thanksgiving is almost here and we are looking forward to spending time with family and friends. And then, here comes Christmas! Very soon you will be hearing the Oak Run Troubadours singing the songs of Christmas at the Ambassadors annual Christmas tree trim. This year it will be held on Saturday, Dec. 7, at 1 p.m. at Palm Grove. The tree trim has taken place in Oak Run on a Sunday for many, many years. However, the change to Saturday this year was made to avoid conflict with other church and community programs. The Troubadours have been working diligently to bring you a wonderful program. Songs such as Ill Be Home for Christmas, The 12 Days of Christmas, The Colors of Christmas, a magnificent arrangement of carols called Rejoice, and many more will be sung, including The Chanukah Song. So plan to come and enjoy a lovely and relaxing afternoon with your friends and neighbors on Saturday, Dec. 7. It will get you in the Christmas spirit and bring you into this special season of the year. Recently our beloved piano accompanist, Margaret Elder, had to resign from Troubadours. Margaret has been with us for nine years, the first two years as co-accompanist and from 2006 on as our only accompanist. She is a very talented and dedicated lady and her expertise in music is amazing. We have great respect and admiration for Margaret and she will surely be missed. We wish her the best. To jump ahead, after Christmas the Troubadours will begin their practice Thursday, Jan. 9, at Palm Grove for their April annual Spring Concert. If you are interested in singing whether soprano, alto, tenor or bass please contact Mary Beth Lake at 352-873-8787.

Prayer is no substitute for action. In fact, in some cases it is not in order to pray. For example, it is wrong to pray about anything clearly forbidden in the Bible. I do not have to pray about hating somebody. It is always wrong to hate and no amount of prayer could ever change that fact. The apostle James set this forth rather clearly in his epistle. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16 KJV). No prayer is worth praying if it is prayed outside of that righteous zone.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Friday, November 8, 2013 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, November 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com For some inexplicable reason, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is under the impression that my favorite hobby is flying kites. I have no idea where she got that notion. Last Thursday, for example, she said to me in one of her sterner voices, Why dont you just go and fly a kite? The joke, of course, is on her. Ha! That is not my hobby and I have not flown a kite since I was 9 years old when my mother made the same request. Who does she think I am? Benjamin Franklin? If she actually knew what my hobby was, I wonder if she would be so anxious for me to indulge. Some secrets are worth keeping. Two things guide me in my pursuit of life. I never fool around with fate and I never second-guess the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. She suggested on Friday evening that we go out for supper. When younger I would have tried to figure out if she was up to something or if I was in some trouble, but not anymore. One of the great advantages of growing older is shedding the necessity of trying to figure everything out. Life has been much easier since I have started to live in the moment. So much in life is unexplainable that I have stopped wasting my time trying to explain it. Moreover, the greatest thing is, I am not under any pressure to understand everything or figure anything out, especially when it comes to the female side of the matrimonial equation. Let the mystery of romance do its thing. Just one thing, in spite of everything, still bothers me. I know it may be a minor matter to most people, but for me it is important. Do I have to pray for everything? On Friday, my wife and I made our way to our favorite restaurant and to our great delight, our favorite waitress was on duty and we requested her table. Stay with a sure thing, I always say. After our first cup of coffee, we were ready to contemplate our order. It is not good to order your meal right away; get settled in your seat, have a good cup of coffee and then decide on the meal for the evening. I chose the delicious meat loaf dinner while my better half ordered the pot roast. Both came with what our waitress called a vegetable medley. Let it be known that a vegetable medley was not harmonious with my primeval appetite. With an air of masculine sophistication, I ordered the vegetable of the day. It was too lovely of an evening to get hung up on such small matters. After all, I was unwinding and did not need to put my little gray cells in high gear. Taking our order, our waitress disappeared into the kitchen while we sat back to enjoy each others society while our meal was being prepared. Luxury, in my book, is where you find it. After a busy week in the church, it is always beneficial to settle back and relax. Nothing is more important than getting balance in life and keeping it. Before we knew it, the waitress brought our meals and set them before us. Much to my surprise, the vegetable of the day was broccoli. The waitress quickly disappeared amid some unsuccessful muffled giggling from across the table. Gaining some measure of composure, my wife requested I offer the prayer for the meal. My question: does God really expect me to pray for broccoli? I was reminded of an incident with my good friend and spiritual mentor, the Rev. Frank Simmons. After a Sunday morning service, a woman approached Frank with a simple request. Oh, Brother Simmons, she said in a dramatic fashion that always irritated Frank, would you pray that my daughter gets married? Without giving her request any thought, he replied in the negative. The thing I always liked about good ole Brother Simmons was that he was always Frank. Why wont you pray for my daughter, demanded the woman. Well, Frank said, tell me something. Does she have any special friend? Is she dating? Frank later told me that many people want God to do everything for them. There is plenty for us to do, he said with a mischievous grin. Of course, Frank firmly believed in prayer but he also believed people have personal responsibility in their lives. So many blame God for the bad in their life. Then when they get in trouble, they Does God expect me to pray for broccoli? Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE11 The Marion Landing Fall Sale will take place tomorrow, Saturday, Nov. 9, from 8 a.m. to noon.

Friday, November 8, 2013 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, November 8, 2013 BY MARY ELLEN POE, CEO Hospice of Marion County As the season of traditional family get-togethers approaches, the last thing on anyones mind would be having an end-of-life discussion. However, I would like to open that conversation right now and literally put this topic on the table the kitchen table. Surrounded by extended family in the warmth and ease of these annual rituals, there is no better time or place to talk about what you want should you become incapacitated, either from an accident or advancing illness. Encouraging people to have kitchen-table conversations is a stretch for most, given the gap between what we say and what we do. Polls show that 70 percent of Americans want to die at home in comfort among their loved ones, yet the same percentage actually dies in institutional settings*, often in the ICU under stressful circumstances. Eighty-two percent believe its important to put their wishes in writing, but only 23 percent have completed the task, although its as simple as filling out a two-page form. To help close the gap, I have some suggestions for this holiday season. Do the right thing. Be brave enough to talk to your family its the best gift you can give them, unburdening them from having to make tough decisions in a crisis rather than in a calm agreement. The first step is downloading a free Living Will from www.hospiceofmarion.com/advance-directives.html. No lawyer is required; only two witnesses and thoughtful consideration of your wishes. Make copies for your physician and each of those who will be in charge of your care if you cannot speak for yourself. The second step is to visit www.theconversationproject.org, a website that offers a Conversation Starter Kit. Its available in English and Spanish, and presents a user-friendly step-by-step process, preparing you for your sit-down and talking points when it comes time to speak up. It has the questions your family will likely ask, as well as the answers to reassure them. The guide also has tips for better communication with your physician and care providers, as well as personal stories of others to help you along the way. More and more, the families sitting around the kitchen table in Marion County are made up of the largest segment of the population the boomers. This age group spans 49 to 67 years old. In their youth, they were behind four social movements and three cultural revolutions (civil rights, feminist, ecology, war protest, religious, etc.). The boomers are major movers and shakers. They want it all and value good health, vibrant well-being and prosperity. Often this generation finds itself serving as caregivers for both their parents and eventually their spouses or other siblings. When illness strikes, they are the last to give in and seek all means to combat disease and old age. Thanks to advanced medical technology, we have a multitude of options. We can seek cures and treatments, whenever possible; extend survival, if its practical; and relieve pain, as needed. When a cure is no longer possible and extending life is not optimal, hospice offers an opportunity to change the dynamic. Accepting hospice care is not about giving up hope or giving in to illness it is a redefinition of hope. Hope shows up in as many forms as there are individuals and it changes with time. It can be an opportunity to complete life tasks, provide serenity in allowing others to carry some of our burden or it may evolve into a peaceful acceptance at the end of lifes journey. One of the biggest misconceptions about hospice is that it is that thing you do right at the end. Sadly, many people survive This past Sunday morning, if you turned on your television to a sports channel, you came across a bunch of people running. It was the New York City Marathon, which, of course, drew a lot more attention than usual because of the tragic finish of the Boston Marathon, where bombs went off and people died near the finish line. You knew that security would be tight, but still, there were a staggering number of entries and an equally impressive number of spectators, not afraid to show their support for the race and the runners. I watched the runners and said to myself, Why would you do this? I knew there are stories of individual accomplishment, etc., but I wondered if they considered what the long-range implications would be to their legs. When I was younger, I was a high school football and basketball official (most people incorrectly call all of us referees). On the days when I didnt have a game, I ran. It was about two miles a day, and when I lived in Palatka, I ran through a park of hills called Ravine State Gardens. Admission was free (not any more, its now a state park with an admission fee), and the 1.8-mile driving trail was closed at 4 p.m. and there were only pedestrians, both walkers and runners, allowed. I punished myself a little, but it paid off on game days, when I didnt run out of breath if a runner came around my side and went 80 yards (not that I had the speed to keep up with him), or if a basketball game went into double overtime with teams averaging 100 points each (only two officials on the court in those days). Later in life, though, my legs are paying for all that running, hindering not only running, but also, at times walking. If I had to do it all over again, Id find another way to get myself in shape for those games. So there I was on Sunday, watching the race. The biggest negative is that unless you followed running, you had no idea who these people were. As someone who was born in the Bronx, grew up in northern New Jersey and worked and drove in Manhattan and Queens for quite a while, it was interesting to watch. I thought the coverage didnt provide enough information about where the runners were. We knew they were in Brooklyn, then across a bridge onto First Avenue, and somehow ended up in the Bronx. I would have liked to have known if they were running through my old neighborhood or the area where I was born, but they never really said. The one bit of coverage I objected to was one announcer who ran a short distance to interview a Native American woman who was running. Shes using up energy answering questions instead of concentrating on the race. Shes obviously got a stronger constitution than I have I would have reached over and had that announcer swallowing his microphone. I was screaming at the TV, get that guy off the course. Of course, she probably gave her permission ahead of time, but still There was another group of people I would have liked to have heard from the cleanup crew. From time to time, the runners ran past a bunch of people in red parkas holding a drink out so the participants could grab a cup, take a swallow then throw the cup on the road. I wonder what the New York sanitation workers were thinking as they watched, knowing they would have to clean up the mess. I guess New Yorks anti-littering law was suspended for this race.

Normally, chairmen serve one year, and thus Kathy Bryant has finished her term, and Zalak moved up from vice chair. This is the normal progression, and the vote on the motion to accept the two was unanimous we think. The one flaw in the process is that it was announced at the beginning that Zalak and McClain had received the needed votes from some sort of ballot. But the final vote count was never announced. Was it unanimous? We dont know. Apparently there was no problem this time, but that doesnt mean that this system couldnt be abused in the future. Someday down the road there could be a conflict among commissioners that could result in a tight vote. We need to set a standard where all votes are announced. That could prevent problems in the future. We have said in the past that the state statute that says a vote shall be recorded for each commissioner. We have pushed for a roll call on all votes, even though that would take a little time. Nowadays, almost everything is unanimous, but, again, it may not be that way in the future. We want to hear each commissioner say yea or nay so there is no doubt that where they stand in case it comes up in the future. Elsewhere in the meeting, Bryant announced that the food drive that was so successful on short notice last year will be repeated for a longer period of time. For the second straight year, the final drive will be on the Ocala Downtown Square on Dec. 6. Last year about 10,000 pounds was collected, and organizers hope to double the collection this season, trying to help the hungry in our community.

EMPTY MANSIONS By Bill Dedman and Paul Clark Newell, Jr. When Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Bill Dedman needed a new house, he wandered, he says, a little out of his price range. In tony New Canaan, Connecticut a 29-room mansion had been reduced from $35 million to just $24 million. Complete with 11 fireplaces, 52 wooded acres, a river and a waterfall, the house had never been lived in since its sale in 1951. Inadvertently, Dedman had stumbled into the mysterious world of copper mining heiress Huguette Clark. Intrigued, Dedman teamed up with a distant cousin of Huguette to locate the reclusive multimillionaire and learn her story. The search began in 1991 when Dr. Henry Singman, an internist, made an emergency house call to a palatial apartment on Fifth Avenue. In the half-light, Singman came face-to-face with an apparitiona tiny woman about 85 in a soiled bathrobe suffering from several basal cell cancers, the left part of her lower lip missing, her right cheek with cavities, and deep ulcers exposing the orbital bone. He was looking at one of the worlds richest women, and her obsession with privacy had brought her to this state. He urges her to go immediately to the hospital. She agrees and then never leaves it for almost 20 years until her death at age 104. This biography, longer than it needs to be at 400 plus pages, is actually three stories in one. The first is the rags-to-riches account of how Huguettes father amassed a fortune through intelligence, drive, and hard work. W.A. Clark bought railroads and banks, an enviable art collection, and several mansions. But his spending was ostentatious and status seeking. Though he lacked nothing material his character was questionable. He bribed his way to a Senate seat amid protests. I never bought a man who wasnt for sale, he said unapologetically. His colleagues, determined to throw the rascal out, persuaded him to quit. The second story involves Huguettes mother, W.A.s second much younger wife Anna. With her, Clark fathered two girls, Andree and Huguette, when in his sixties. After Andrees death at 16 and later W.A.s demise, mother and surviving daughter became inseparable. In the last story a normal woman, devastated by her mothers death, slowly disintegrates into isolation and eccentricity. Her last days are spent playing with dolls, watching cartoons, and lavishing money on her nurses, one she made a millionaire, yet her mind was clear. Huguette is a puzzling figure and her life an enigma.

There were audible gasps around the table, then some laughter, as his older brothers shared their disbelief that he could handle this new situation. Oh, come on, quit joking, snickered one. You didnt really do that, did you? You would never get through basic training, scoffed another. The new recruit looked to his mother for help, but she was just gazing at him. When she finally spoke, she simply asked, Do you really plan to make your own bed every morning?

Complaining is useless, and also unwise since your words could come back to haunt you. T AURUS (April 20 to May 20) A sudden flash of Bovine practicality shows you how you might be able to turn your artistic pursuits into a profitable venture. A spouse or partner offers some sage advice. GEM INI ( May 21 to J une 20) Be prepared with several Plan Bs that you might have to use as backups just in case you encounter some troublesome complications with your carefully constructed schedule. C ANC ER (June 21 to J uly 22) You might think youll never have a free moment again with the demands of the workplace piling on. Cheer up. The pressure eases as holidays near. An old friend brings good news. L EO (July 23 to A ug. 22) Your Leonine pride might make it difficult to offer an apology to a co-worker you unintentionally offended. But a quick and sincere Im sorry could prevent problems. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a good time to tackle those backed-up chores that have kept you from moving into other and potentially more worthwhile projects. A personal matter needs your attention. LIB RA ( Sept. 23 to O ct. 22) You usually have no problem rushing to the defense of someone you perceive as being treated unjustly. But perceptions could be deceiving. Check the facts before you act. SCORP IO (Oct. 23 to N ov 21) Before you point fingers at who might be to blame for the unexpected change in your plans, take a few moments to reflect on how this turn of events might be a blessing in disguise. S AGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec. 21) You seek out advice in the first part of the week. But be careful not to let counsel from others overshadow your own sense of perception. Things become clearer by the weeks end. CAP RIC ORN ( Dec. 22 to J an. 19) The trusted colleagues you relied on earlier continue to offer support with your project. But you take more control, and by weeks end, should be in command. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb 18) Rely on your practical side while exploring investment possibilities. Caution is still your watchword in these matters. Your social life takes a gratifying turn by the weeks end. PI SCE S ( Feb 19 to March 20) An confusing situation appears to grow murkier early in the week. But it all starts to clear by weeks end. Plan to spend the weekend with someone special.

SCNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 Monday is Veterans Day, a holiday to honor Americas veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on Nov. 11, the anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended World War I. Our trip down Pun Alley starts with a twenty-onepun solute to honor our veterans: A soldier never made it back to his base because he had driven his jeep into AWOL. When William joined the army he disliked the phrase fire at will. You would think that being a submarine captain would pay well, but I hear they cant keep their heads above water. The soldier who survived mustard gas and pepper spray is now a seasoned veteran. Trench warfare should always be a last ditch effort. A woman was in love with 20 soldiers. It was platoonic. An ex-sailor prefers to forget the days he spent playing cards in submarines, dismissing them as so much bridge under the water. At first the paratroops didnt obey orders, but finally they fell in line. The Junior NCO had sore wrists. The doctor said it was corporal tunnel syndrome. The General started bowling before his aide had entered his name on the score sheet. He had launched a pre-emptive strike. People who hate the Marines are rotten to the corps. A chaplain on the sea leads the soldiers in their warship. Army doctors are involved in big military operations. Only in America do we have a General in charge of the post office and a Secretary in charge of defense. The military head is seeking more arms. Yesterday I accidentally swallowed some food coloring. The doctor says Im OK, but I feel like Ive dyed a little inside. It was a brilliant idea to make army fatigues and army food the same color. A politician finally got to speak at a banquet where a general and an admiral had preceded him at unwonted length. The politician first words were that now he knew the true meaning of the phrase, The Army and Navy forever. Military cadet: Im a West Pointer. Unimpressed young lady: I dont care if youre an Irish setter. The army pastry chef was very smart. In college he was a member of Pie Baker Kappa. If you believe the saying that old soldiers fade away, try getting into your old Army uniform. All wetThree hillbillies on their first leave from the Army went to St. Louis on a weekend and stopped at the YMCA. After visiting the game rooms, they asked at the information desk what else the Y had to offer. Theres swimming in the basement, said the clerk. This seemed to impress them. They withdrew to a corner and got into a discussion. Finally one of them went back to the desk and said, Did I understand you that there was women in the basement?Heres the pitch It wasnt long before Captain Smith noticed that Sergeant Jones had almost a perfect record for insurance sales, which had never happened before. Rather than ask about this, the Captain stood in the back of the room and listened to Joness sales pitch. Jones explained the basics of the GI Insurance to the new recruits, and said, If you have GI Insurance and go into battle and are killed, the government has to pay $200,000 to your beneficiaries. If you dont have GI insurance, and you go into battle and get killed, the government has to pay only a maximum of $6000. Now, he concluded, which bunch do you think they are going to send into battle first? A 21-pun salute to vets Pun Alley Dick Frank PLEASESEEPUN, PAGE24 Harmony CornerBY PETER J. MUSELLA Special to the CitizenIts been a while but "Harmony Corner" is back. A lot has happened since last I wrote but I won't bore you with the details.

At the meeting Tuesday, Nov. 5, Sherry Evans spoke in the public input portion of the meeting, citing problems with trespassing into private property along the river. Saying she lives on the river, Evans said there are groups of people, sometimes 20, sometimes 50 at a time, that enter peoples property. She said that when she addresses the privacy issue with the intruders, Ive been cursed at, Ive been laughed at. She said a neighbor had been threatened with the burning of her house, another had a threat to kill a dog. Were all afraid. People are so disrespectful. She said she lives a distance away from launch points, and by the time they get there theyre intoxicated. Evans said that it has turned into spring break at Daytona Beach. She spoke about people taking the law into their own hands. Weve reached that frustration level. She complimented the Dunnellon police for their efforts, but added that when we call the sheriff, it takes 45 minutes for them to get there, and when they do, the people are on the river and the deputy says theres nothing he can do. Sometimes when we call at night, they never show up. She said that if the county doesnt have enough money, then lets charge 2 or 3 dollars extra to get a sheriff in the river. Outgoing Chairman Kathy Bryant, asked that the county administrator study the situation and report back. Earlier in the meeting, Carl Zalak was elected to be the next chairman, while Stan McClain will be vice chair. The county also set Thursday, Nov. 21 at 3 p.m. as the time for a workshop with the city of Ocala to discuss plans for a baseball stadium to host a New York Yankees Minor League team. 28~ Friday, November 8, 2013 www.smcitizen.com Rainbow revelers annoy residents Halloween at the Sheriffs Office The annual Halloween party at the Sheriffs substation on State Road 200 drew a large crowd.
