Upon arrival at 24113 NE Water Oak Ave. in the Rainbow Lakes area near Dunnellon, the friend saw the fathers car in the yard with the front windows rolled down. When he went to close the windows, he said he sent the children into the house to see if their parents were there. The children found the couple dead of apparent gunshot wounds. The female, Latalia Robinson, 32, who worked at West Port High School, was found dead, along with her estranged husband, Dean Hamilton, 33, who worked at Cheney Brothers. The couple was separated, and the husband was living in a house with the friend. On the morning of Dec. 28, the children ate breakfast with their mother at the Water Oak Avenue house, then went to be with their father at the other house. According to the report, the children went to bed that evening. In the morning of Dec. 29, the friend asked them to wake up their father, but the children came back and said he was gone. After trying to locate the father all day, the friend decided to go to the childrens house, and had to use a GPS to find the location. That was when the bodies were discovered. When deputies arrived, they found Marion County Fire Rescue personnel putting crime scene tape around the vehicle. Their original call had said someone was in cardiac arrest in the home. The Sheriffs office said the woman was found on the bed in the master bedroom, and the man was found on the floor. A gun was found near the bedpost. There was blood near both victims. According to the report, a judge had previously ordered Hamilton not to return to the Water Oak Avenue house. The report did not list the ages of the children.28~ Friday, January 3, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Children found bodies of parents in Dunnellon Enjoy a vibrant start to 2014 with the First Friday Art Walk on Jan. 3, from 6 to 9 p.m. Enjoy more than 50 individual artist displays, extended shopping hours, and live music on the downtown square.

This weeks puzzle answers 000H0JD Free Tests Are Available This Week Only Annual Hearing Test: SMART. Free Annual Hearing Test: GENIUS. 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.

Its now several days after New Years with its parties and celebrations. Some of us are still recovering and now dreading going back to work after the holiday season. Others are thinking about the resolutions they made and wondering how they will keep them. So, take some time out and wander down Pun Alley for some after-New-Years stories.Good intentionsThis year the collectors of antique tents in Germany got together for a rally after the organizers had decided to hold it the quaint city of Meinz. During the event the local burghers were dismayed by the influx of tourists ruining their turf with tent pegs. When the tenters left, the local protesters sang them an anthem, Let Old and Quaint Tents Be Forgot and Never Brought to Meinz.Wrong WayA very drunken man got on a city bus early New Years morning, staggered up the aisle, and sat next to an elderly woman. She looked the man up and down and said, Ive news for you. Youre going straight to hell! The man jumped up out of his seat and shouted, Good heavens, Im on the wrong bus.New Years shotsWhen they were late to the party, they were beaten to the punch. Ive decided on my New Years Resolution. Beginning in March Im going to stop procrastinating. TV news reported that on New Years Eve 40,000,000 Americans went to New Years Eve parties. These are staggering figures. This year my wife gave me a new piece of kitchen equipment. So I celebrated with my New Years Sieve. The rest of you will have to sift for yourselves. Gene drinks a toast on holidays, Heres to our holidays, all 366 of them! The satellite went into orbit on January 1st causing a new years revolution. When I thought about the evils of drinking in the New Year, I gave up thinking. Were so broke, my wife and I stayed home and toasted the New Year. She had rye and I had whole wheat. A high resolution is a promise made on New Years Eve. Ive thought long and hard, and have decided on my New Years resolution. Its 1024x768 (This one is for computer geeks.). John heard that in 2014 there will be a new device that can turn thoughts into speech. Hes had that for years, its called alcohol.ManlyI think women get more excited about New Years Eve than men. If you think about it, you can see why. What do you do on New Years Eve? You drink too much and make a lot of promises you dont keep. You see, men do that all the time, its called dating. A ladys bellyacheTwas just after New Years Day, and all through the house Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse. The cookies Id nibbled, the eggnog Id taste At the holiday parties had gone to my waist. When I got on the scales there arose such a number! When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber). Id remember the marvelous meals Id prepared, The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared, The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese And the way Id never said, No thank you, please. As I dressed myself in my husbands old shirt. And prepared once again to do battle with dirt I said to myself as I only can, You cant spend a winter disguised as a man! So away with the last of the sour cream dip, Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip Every last bit of food that I like must be banished Till all the additional ounces have vanished. I wont have a cookie not even a lick. Ill want only to chew on a long celery stick. I wont have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie, Ill munch on a carrot and quietly cry. Im hungry, Im lonesome, and work is a bore. But isnt that what January is for? Unable to giggle, no longer a riot. Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!Pun Alley resolutionThis column would not be complete without some New Years resolutions. I recommend that you resolve to have more fun and laughs in the coming years. I resolve to try to help this along with Pun Alley every week. Friday, January 3, 2014 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, January 3, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Its a good time to take a much-needed break from your recent hectic schedule and spend some time in quieter surroundings. Important news could arrive early next week. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Taurean traits of reliability and thoroughness could be welltested when decision-makers consider your proposals and/or requests. Be prepared to answer some probing questions. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A sudden attack of boredom leaves you with some tasks undone. Its OK to take a short respite. But get back to work by weeks end so that you have time for other projects. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Avoid prejudging a situation just because it looks bad. Facts could emerge that would make your position uncomfortable, to say the least. A relative has interesting news to share with you. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good time to begin reassessing some of your recent decisions about your long-range goals to see if they still have merit. Spend more time with loved ones this weekend. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) An unsettled situation at home or on the job early in the week could drain your energy levels, making it difficult to get your work done on schedule. But things improve by midweek. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A temporary setback could give you time to go over your plans to find weaknesses you might have overlooked before. A romantic getaway with that special person is favored this weekend. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Professional and personal situations benefit once you set a positive tone in getting things off to a good start. Honest dialogue smoothes over any occasional display of balkiness. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A problem with workplace colleagues or family members seems to defy even your sage counsel. But be patient. Your words eventually will lead to a resolution. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Dont just wait out that unexpected and unexplained delay in your career move. You could gain added respect if you ask why it happened and what you can do to move things along. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Although your workplace strategies usually are accepted, you could be challenged by someone who isnt so favorably impressed. Be prepared to defend your positions. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your friendship circle expands, with new people coming into your life at this time. Welcome them warmly. But dont neglect those cherished longtime personal relationships.(c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

The day of worship will begin at 9:30 a.m. with a traditional style service featuring many of the great hymns that are known and loved by many. Sunday school classes will immediately follow the traditional service. Then a new casual style service will begin at 11:15 a.m. called Cross Training at College Park Church. It will feature the contemporary praise and worship songs of today lead by the College Park Church praise and worship band. The ministry staff of College Park Church includes senior pastor Dr. James L Fleming, associate pastor and youth minister Keith Mitchell, and worship leader Kelly McVey. The church is non-denominational Christian in theology and practice, but is not an independent church. The congregation is vitally connected with 2,300 other congregations whose general offices are in Anderson, Indiana. The decision was made to go to two services in an effort bring more people to Christ by offering more options for them to attend on Sunday mornings. The Cross Training service will offer a unique style with a casual atmosphere that invites people to come as they are. It has long been a mission of College Park Church to reach the students of the College of Central Florida given the churchs close proximity to the CF campus. College Park Churchs worship leader Kelly McVey (who was included as a top four finalist in the JoyFMs cellphone superstar contest this summer) is also a student at the College of Central Florida. Worship is a vital part of being a Christian and Im so thrilled that we are starting this additional worship service. I think its great for new comers or even people who have been attending the church for years to have a couple of options when choosing the worship style they prefer.(McVey) The people at College Park Church are known for their hospitality, love and fellowship. For the first time in my life, I have a personal relationship with my pastor, a church home and a church family. Ive been to huge churches locally and always felt like a number.(Jennifer Speck, church member) College Park Church is one of the most warm and friendly churches that I have ever attended. Everyone is encouraged to attend and participate as much as they would like.

Friday, January 3, 2014 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, January 3, 2014 www.smcitizen.com FAMILY FEATURES Strawberries are a quick and easy snack for adults and children. Its no wonder why theyre a top fruit juice in kitchens and lunchboxes everywhere. Plus, these tasty fruits are packed with almost 140 percent of immune system boosting vitamin C. Strawberries always put a smile on my face, says Chef Justin Timineri, execu tive chef and culinary ambas sa dor, Florida Department of Agricul ture and Consumer Services. My favorite recipe for them is to simply Rinse, eat and repeat. You can find more snack ideas and recipes at http://bit.ly/floridaberries.Fluffy Stuffed StrawberriesYield: 16 servings 1 pound Florida strawberries 8 ounces low-fat cream cheese, softened 3 ounces low-fat yogurt 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract Cut stems off strawberries and carefully scoop out 2/3 of inside with knife or spoon, creating a cup. Be careful not to make any holes. Cut piece off bottom tip of strawberries to allow them to stand up. Beat cream cheese and yogurt until fluffy. Fold in vanilla extract. Working in batches, place cheese mix ture into pastry or sealable bag with small corner cut off. Fill strawberries with cheese mixture. Garnish with mint and serve. Kids Can: Place cheese mixture into pastry bag and fill strawberries. Grown Up Alert: Adults should stem the strawberries. How to buyChoose strawberries that are plump, fragrant and firm, with no signs of bruising or leaking.How to storeIts best to eat strawberries on the day of purchase. You can freeze strawberries by hulling, lightly wash ing and drying them. Arrange in a single layer before placing in the freezer.Hulling tipsNever hull strawberries until after they have been washed or they will absorb too much water and become mushy.

Matthew Jacobs is receiving a donation from a shopper just before she goes into the store. Scouts from Troop 707 ring the bellOn Dec. 21, Boy Scouts and parents from Troop 707 sponsored by the Ocala West Methodist Church rang bells for the Salvation Army at Publix in the Canopy Oak Plaza. It was a great opportunity to do their daily good turn and earn service hours for future ranks. Some Scouts worked double shifts in spite of sore arms. These are the country's future leaders so it is good to see them helping a charity. The church and Salvation Army really appreciate all the bell ringers around the country. For information about the church or Scouts, contact Jim or Stephanie Salmon at 352-843-0093. Photos by Mike Roppel At left, Logan Baker is ringing a bell. He encourages donations by singing Christmas carols. Below, Logan is joined by his sister, Athena, a member of Girl Scout troop 172, also sponsored by the Methodist church. Must present coupon.

Friday, January 3, 2014 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, January 3, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Some of the decorated houses found in Oak Run Photos by Ron Ratner The Florida Bar, the state's guardian for the integrity of the legal profession, announces that the Florida Supreme Court in recent court orders disciplined 21 attorneys; disbarring two, suspending 17 and publicly reprimanding two. Seven attorneys received more than one form of discipline, with three being placed on probation; one being publicly reprimanded, and three ordered to pay restitution. Pamela Bounds Olsen, P.O. Box 3612, Ocala, suspended for 30 days, effective 30 days from a Nov. 27 court order. Further, upon reinstatement, Olsen is placed on probation for one year. (Admitted to practice: 1991) In five separate cases over a one year period, Olsen received referral fees to which her law firm claimed entitlement and did not share them with the law firm. Court disciplines Ocala attorney Pamela Bounds Olsen for 30 days FAITH By Jennifer Haigh Although the title is Faith, Haighs compassionate story is far more about doubt. It begins when, after two years, Sheila McGann breaks her promise of silence to reveal the truth, as she sees it, about her half-brother Father Art and the accusations that he was a pedophile. She admits that what she has to say is too little too late. Even so, in broad strokes she introduces us to Art, abandoned by his father, ignored by his stepdad and finally welcomed into the arms of the church. Then in Boston on Good Friday 2002 Father Art Breen, now in his fifties, is feeling lost and looking forward to making changes in his life when hes summoned to the churchs administrative office. He has no idea what hes being charged with and why hes being put on leave. In a scene straight out of Kafka hes not told what hes done or the name of his accuser. Since the premise of the novel is clearly how a priest scandal tears one family apart, Sheila delves into each members reaction. Mary, Arts mother, never wavers from her belief that her gentle son is innocent. Baby brother Mike is quick to indict but later regrets his rashness. As for Sheila, she simply vacillates because she says, When it comes to a man like my brother, nothingnothingis clear. Art, with eerie calmness, ignores the battle raging around him as to whether he behaved inappropriately with his housekeepers 8-year-old grandson. And the author suspends the truth until the end, forcing us to consider all the various dimensions of sin. The novel unfolds with several narrative viewpoints; the characters are drawn with great authenticity, the details of this dysfunctional blue-collar family exactly right. Faith is an unsettling tale that sweeps the reader along to its conclusion. Recommended.

Friday, January 3, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, January 3, 2014 BY RICH LOWRY Special to the CitizenIf at any time while reading this article your attention wanders, you may have ADHD. If you pause to check your email sometime during the next three paragraphs, you should consult a doctor. If you fail to read this article all the way to the end, you should get on Adderall, Ritalin or some other drug to treat your condition as soon as possible. This isnt quite the standard for diagnosing attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, but its close. The New York Times ran a long expose on how the drug industry has stoked the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD that had a revelatory quote from Keith Conners, a doctor who has long advocated for the recognition of the disorder. Conners called the overdiagnosis of ADHD a national disaster of dangerous proportions, telling the Times that the rising number of cases is a concoction to justify the giving out of medication at unprecedented and unjustifiable levels. This isnt bomb-throwing from an outsider, but a critique from the namesake of the Conners ratings scale widely used to evaluate kids for ADHD. There is no doubt that ADHD is a legitimate neurological condition that makes kids (and those around them) miserable, that blights their potential and that can be alleviated by prescription stimulants like Adderall and Ritalin. There also is no doubt that diagnosis and treatment of the disorder has run wildly out of control. According to the forthcoming book The ADHD Explosion, 19 percent of high-school-aged males have received a diagnosis. The numbers differ from state to state. In North Carolina, an astounding 30 percent of boys over age 9 are supposedly suffering from ADHD. Overall, 6 percent of children and adolescents in the United States are on drugs to treat ADHD. Its a wonder more kids arent diagnosed with it, given the overlap between the description of the disorder and failings to which we are all prone. The New York Times points out that the American Psychiatric Association criteria for ADHD include often has difficulty waiting his or her turn and makes careless mistakes, hardly rare childhood behaviors. The drug companies for whom ADHD is a $9 billion-a-year business target mothers with alluring ads suggesting their children will become little angels through the wonders of risk-free stimulants. Their kids will get better grades, spend more quality time with the family and remember to take out the trash. Who wouldnt want their child thus magically transformed? According to the Times report, the Food and Drug Administration has constantly rebuked the companies for going beyond the evidence in selling visions of childhood Valhalla secured through the right drug. Undertrained primary-care physicians and worried parents default much too often to the diagnosis of ADHD and to the answer of a prescription. The next frontier is adult ADHD, with the promise of a vast new pharmaceutical market made up of people deprived of ADHD diagnoses when they were children. Some of these diagnoses will be warranted and life-changing, but others will be overreach prompted by vague and dubious symptoms, like inattentive op-ed reading. Sure, you got to the end of this article. But how about the next one? Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. The Feds want you to see traffic signs, including street signs, better when you drive at night. The debate is whether this will cost local governments money that they dont have. The government, in the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices, issued reflectivity guidelines a few years ago, and all entities, whether state, county or local, must meet those guidelines. When they first came out there was a lot of discussion about the cost. One change particularly caught the eye of some journalists, including me. It said that using all capital letters in street signs was no longer permitted. The signs must be upper and lower case. At first many considered this a mandate, and there were stories popping up about how many dollars were going to have to be spent. A New York City newspaper said the city would have to spend more than a million dollars to replace all its street signs. Even though I had the new regulations, I put off writing about it, figuring that this assessment might not be accurate. Turns out I was probably right, that its not going to be a great financial burden, at least not at once. If I read the new directions properly (I warn you, they are written in government-speak), city and counties can replace signs with the new lettering, but dont have to go out and change every sign right away, only those that have become old and hard to see and if they dont meet the reflectivity rules. Theres something else that needs to be emphasized by regulation, and that is that the county and city must keep the street signs visible. A few months ago, a lady speaking at a county meeting brought up the lack of maintenance in Rolling Hills, an area west of State Road 200 and north of County Road 484. She had a picture showing weeds so high they reached the top of a street sign. There are many locations where signs are partially hidden by trees and bushes or even other signs. Thats something that needs to be discussed. As for the lettering, I kind of agree that the signs need to be upper and lower case. Most newspapers dont run news copy in all capital letters for the same reason it can be hard to read. Here in our county there are many signs that are all capital letters. While they may be a little hard to read, according to the Feds, we really havent heard anyone complain, so the change can be gradual. As is so often the case, although not too burdensome, this is an unfunded mandate from the federal government, which must have thousands of employees just sitting around looking for things to do, so they come up with ideas like this. So if you want to read something when you have insomnia, this excerpt from the manual is available online. Just go to https://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/R 43042.pdf and read. If any hyphens appear in the web address, ignore them. Thats just our computer breaking the copy from line to line. If you come up with a different conclusion than I have outlined, please feel free to writer a letter to the editor. When it comes to government language, if you can clean it up for us, more power to you. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Its time for New Years resolutions, if you go in for such things, so in the spirit of this weeks holiday we bring you our wishes for resolutions by the officials, both elected and non-elected, who run our government, whether local, state or national. Theyre listed in the order of what we consider important, except for No. 6, which really should be at the top of everyones list. 1. Play ball. We havent changed our wish for a stadium, and were not particular about how it gets done. If the politicians are able to come up with a plan that doesnt include a tax, well all be better for it. In a little over two years, however, we hope to be sitting in the stadium taking in a Minor League Baseball game. 2. Protection for our water. Our water districts seem to have a funny way of protecting our water supply they let people take what they want. Its time to clamp down and make sure we have enough natural water here for us, before we allow bottling companies to take it and sell it. Water is not an unlimited resource. We need controls before our supply dries up. 3. A crackdown on armed robbers who are making store clerks their victims. At this time of year there is usually a spike in robberies, and this year was no different. Our store clerks, who are there for our convenience, shouldnt be subjected to constant fear of being robbed by some gun-toting hoodlums, some of whom come from outside the area. More patrols, especially at night, and more sophisticated alarm systems should be planned. Lets make it safer for our local workers. Youll notice, by the way, that the South Marion Citizen rarely publishes the names of store clerks who have been robbed. They have been thrust into the news against their will, and unless they choose to insert themselves into the situation more prominently (such as shooting at a robber), their privacy will be protected. 4. More law enforcement presence on certain roads that have become racetracks. We think mainly of the 31st Street corridor, with the new four-lane road where hardly anyone observes the 40 mph limit. Yes, that limit is low for that road, but its the law and should be strongly enforced with citations handed out every day. And there shouldnt be any favoritism just because the offenders are students headed for a local high school. Teach them now to obey the law, and we may be saving their lives later. 5. Better traffic flow plans and synchronized lights on all the major arteries off the Interstate. Good progress has been made on State Road 200 from Pine all the way to 66th, but after that there doesnt seem to be any organization. If a place such as New York City can synchronize its thousands of lights, we should be able to also. 6. Peace on Earth for all nations, an end to dictatorships that subject the people of certain nations to unbelievable conditions, and respect for life at all levels in all countries. In the words of the late Rodney King, who was once beaten by Los Angeles police, Why cant we all just get along.

He is regarded with honor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE11 January is a very quiet month after all the excitement in November and December, not much going on. After Christmas it always seems like a big letdown. All the decorations come down and all the cookies are gone. But dont dismay, we have next year to look forward to! Now is a good time to prune your crepe myrtles, roses, etc. Also to plan your vegetable garden. Tomatoes grow great here but you have to cover them with netting to keep out the squirrels.New Years Eve PartyIll be waiting to hear how the SCNs New Years Eve party turned out. The sign-up was Dec. 17-18 and hope you got your tickets. Cindy Hutchins always tries to make it a very special evening with many different finger foods, desserts and coffee. 50/50 is always played. Over 50 tickets were sold. The Ocala Jazz band was the entertainment. Hopefully it was an excellent night.Valentine DanceThe next event coming up is the SCN Valentine Day dance on Saturday, Feb. 15. Time is 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Cost is $5 at the door. Entertainment will be Solid Gold with Al Sutphen. Refreshments, coffee and dessert will be served. BYOB plus of course 50/50 will be played. Get your sweetheart and take her dancing.One more February eventOne more event will be on Sunday, Feb. 23, at 2 p.m. The Great Pretenders from On Top Of the World will perform. Cost is only $5 at the door. Refreshments will be an ice cream social. If you never have seen the Pretenders, try to attend as they are really good!DogsI really hate to read in the SCN newsletter that residents are still letting their dogs use neighbors yards for their bathrooms. Unless the neighbors have told you its OK and of course you pick up after them, then you should NOT allow your pet on any other residents lawn. Its only common courtesy so please lets try to correct this situation. I am sure that SCN is not the only community that has this problem.Beware of bears?I had heard there were bears spotted in Spruce Creek North. First deer, then bears? Well the day after Christmas I woke up and went in the kitchen to make some coffee when I happened to look out the window. To my surprise our downspouts from our gutters plus 3 other gutter pieces were in our neighbors yard.. We went out to find the downspout ripped off our house. The pieces were all bent up and part of the siding was pulled out. Now what could have done such damage? Then my husband found part of a rabbit in what was left of the downspout and out in the yard was more fur. Only a bear could have done that damage. It took us four hours to repair and replace all the damaged pieces plus try to fix the siding. It was all so unbelievable! So keep a look-out for these bears and any damage they might do. Hope your Christmas was a merry one plus have a healthy, happy New Year! See you Jan. 18! Regards, JanJan Liberio resides in Spruce Creek North with her husband Jim.

They have publicly voiced their love and admiration for his life and his personal history. Unfortunately, his life is riddled with contradictions of giant proportions which should be dealt with when assessing his life. But currently these contradictions are being ignored and swept away by those who choose to rewrite history. To praise the totality of his life without acknowledging and censuring his disregard for the sanctity of human life is to deny the dignity of the family as the foundation and guarantee of all other human rights. The right to life is the basis for all human rights. How can any legacy be considered great after promoting the deaths of unborn children? Before Mandelas arrival as president, South Africa had in place a restrictive law against abortion, but he removed all restrictions on abortion in 1996 with a law permitting abortion on demand. This law permits abortion from conception to the day of natural birth. Americas pro-abortion group NARAL is applauding his pro-death record. The Obama administration has ordered all flags be flown at half-staff to respect Mandelas death. When will we do the same to honor the millions of children whose lives are taken on a daily basis because of laws enacted by elected officials with deformed principles? Mabel Ryan Life Education Ministry, Inc. Lets work togetherI recently read a letter written by the vice president of the Tea Party Solutions who blames President Obama for everything that is wrong in America since his first election in 2008. All our president is trying to do is improve the status of hard working Americans who were never privileged enough to have had health insurance for themselves or their families. Calling our president dishonest because he will not bend over backward to help the Tea Party is what I like about a thinking leader. Non believers must get over the fact that who you so readily call liar in chief has done more to help the working class families than our previous administration. Most people that I know that like their health plan are keeping their health plan and most people that I know who like their doctors are keeping their doctors and for most of the years as members of a health plan we have seen minimal increases in their premiums. When people say this is not true then they havent been paying attention to what is going on in the real world where our president should not be blamed for trying to help those that elected him. I feel that if more people tried to help our government do its job to take care of all Americans our country would be better off. Drinking too much tea is bad for your health.

The year 2013 was good for some and not so good for others. 2014 is a new year where more of the same will happen as it always does. The best anyone can do is to savor and also accept whatever each day brings. To open our eyes each day to a new beginning is something to be grateful for although we cant always make it the way wed like it to be. If we want it to be different from this past year, we need to focus on what we want this year to be like. It wont happen unless we take the time to review what didnt work and change our way of thinking and/or doing. As we age in retirement, many of us tend to get lazy and spend our days exactly as we have since we stopped our working lives. Much of it still brings us the type of life we envisioned. Sometimes adding something new can up our joy, health and peace. We will never know if we dont try something different. The New Year can give us a fresh start. Lets make changes that will give us a better life in what ever way holds true for you.Master the PossibilitiesMaster the Possibilities has 19 programs that start next week. The Winter Spring season has begun in a big way. Classes are taught by experienced and credentialed faculty and the variety is indeed impressive. To review the offerings you can go to masterthepossibilities.com or pick up a catalog at the Center. (8415 SW 80th St.) If youre new to this lifelong learning program, stop by and talk with the staff. They are always happy to let you know about their classes and presentations. Of course, everything is open to the public. Next week I will be letting you know about their Health and Wellness Week that presents so much about staying healthy in the New Year! Be part of this wonderful program....over 8000 people just like you have become lifelong learners and are mastering possibilities.Theatre GroupOn Wednesday, Jan. 8 at 2 p.m. in room G at the Arbor Club Conference Center auditions for the spring show will be held. These are open to anyone living at On Top of the World. If you can sing and read you should attend. The shows will be held on March 28, 29 and 30th 2014 with the week previous consisting of rehearsals each day except Wednesday. This show is similar to last years but with parodies set to old, familiar songs, jokes and brief skits about life behind the gates of this community. Rehearsals will be a couple of times a week. The words to the songs will be memorized but the rest will be read. There will, of course, be many other things that you can do behind the scenes if singing and acting is not your thing. Come on out on January the 8th and see what we are all about. Call Anne Merrick at 352-7320706 if you need more information or just turn up.Travel ToppersAfter the busy holiday season it is time to make your plans for our upcoming trips.

Friday, January 3, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, January 3, 2014 www.smcitizen.com The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage does not allow any pets in our domicile. Something about cleaning up their mess and fleas and other things that I cannot recall. When our last child moved out of the house so did all pets. They are now just fond memories, at least on my side. So no pets are roaming around our house but I do have a variety of pet peeves. My wife graciously allows me to keep my pet peeves as long as I keep them to myself and that they do not mess up the house. For the most part, I try to do that, but occasionally one of my pets escapes from its pen. A pet peeve that recently escaped from its cage is, people taking something out of context to prove their point. You can make anything say and mean anything you want it to say or mean. The politicians have perfected this art and I think it ought to remain within the confines of Washington, D.C. It always amazes me that politicians can virtually say the same thing to different crowds and have it mean different things to separate crowds. Nobody can twist and turn words like professional politician. Just think what these politicians could do if they put this great talent to benefit the people of the United States who elected them. Getting back to my pet peeve. Perhaps a few examples might help explain what I am talking about. In Pennsylvania, we have a saying that if you do not hear the whole thing you might just misunderstand what it is about and jump to the wrong conclusion. The saying goes like this, Throw Papa down the stairs... and if you stop here, Papa may go tumbling down the stairs. However, it is the end of that saying that changes the whole meaning of that phrase, ... his hat. If you focus on the first part of the phrase, you completely misunderstand what it is all about and poor old Papa will suffer the consequences. I wonder how many people have been thrown down the stairs because somebody just heard part of what was actually said. Another one has to do with my wife. We have been married for over 40 years and get along famously but every now and then she will say, Who do you think you are? The first time I heard this I was rather stunned. If I would take that question by itself and divorce it from its context, I might flounder in the sea of despondency. After all, if my wife of 40 something years does not know who I am, something is amiss. Perhaps, after all these years, she is losing it, whatever it is. On the other hand, after all these years she still cannot figure me out. I find that rather silly myself. I am a rather simple person. My wife has a different name for it, she calls it simpleton but it means the same, I think. I distinctly remember one time when she asked this question she caught me off guard and I reintroduced myself to her. Let me just say, I will never make that mistake again. Every so often, she will say in a voice loud enough for everybody in the house to hear, Somebody in this house is getting to be very messy. The first time I heard this I went through the house looking for that somebody not knowing that it was me. At least I am somebody in this house, which is better than, Who do you think you are? It is important to put everything together and in context. Perhaps the most ridiculous example of this is people quoting the Bible. It always amazes me that those who claim the Bible is not really true, always cite the Bible to prove their point. Those who pick out fragments of the Bible to prove their point are rather pathetic. Who has not heard somebody quote Matthew 7:1? Judge not, that ye be not judged. From that, they conclude that Jesus does not want us to judge anybody for anything. If they took the pains to read a few more verses they would find out that they are completely misunderstanding what Jesus is talking about. I have yet to hear somebody pull out Hebrews 12:6, For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. It sort of sounds like judging to me. If somebody wants to excuse something they are doing, they will invariably pull some phrase out of the Bible, always out of context, and hide behind it. It would be like a two hundred pound man hiding behind a golf club thinking nobody can see him. When our grandchildren were younger, they thought if they closed their eyes, we could not see them. Just because they could not see did not mean we could not see. That is OK for small children but when it comes into adulthood, it is quite silly. Jesus also said, Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eyes; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brothers eye (Matthew 7:5). I have read my Bible over one hundred times throughout my life and I have learned one basic truth that goes along with this. True love always judges without being judgmental.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att.net. To judge or not to judge that is the dilemma Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Look around you and notice all the things in daily life that we love to measure: the distance to the theme parks, the length of the driveway for tax purposes, the amount of ounces in a so called pound of coffee, the divisions in cutting a pizza, the number of teaspoons of sugar for chocolate chip cookies, the number of degrees in the temperature scale and the amount of flooring we would need to cover the bedroom. While these are all seemingly mundane measurements, in the Jewish tradition there is a whole set that is used to calculate lengths and amounts of various objects when used for ritual purposes. In the Torah, we are confronted with the measurements used to build Noahs ark (300 hundred cubits long. 50 cubits wide and 30 high.) We are also given the dimensions of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem (length was 60 cubits, its width 20, and its height 40) But what is a cubit in modern measurement? In ancient times, measurements were based on parts of the body. We do the same thing today when we pace out an area by taking precise footsteps. Measurements of length from the biblical/Talmudic periods consisted of etzbah (pl.etzbaot), fingerlength, tefach (pl. tefachim), the measure of a palm or fist, sometimes referred to as a handbreath, zeret (pl. zraot), a handspan and the elusive amah (pl. amot) a cubit. which was the length of the tip of the middle finger to the elbow. On an average sized man, using my husband for an example, the length was 19 inches. Contrast this to me, an average sized woman, and the amount was 16 inches. It is probably safe to say that the male measurement would have been the standard so that can give you an idea how big both Noahs ark and Solomons Temple were. Other measurements used were borrowed from other cultures in the Middle East. In this case we have the mil (pl. milin ) which was a Roman term with an equivalent of 2000 amot (cubits) and parsa which was a Persian measure of length of about 4 milin. When it came to Jewish rituals, measurements were very important. There had to be a standard for what consititued the proper size for a sukkah, for example, or how much matzah that one was obligated to eat on Passover. Beitzah, the volume of an egg and kzayit or the amount or size of an olive are often used as examples when determining portion size for ritual purposes. In these cases, size does matter because an observant Jew would want to eat the proper amounts of ritual foods in order to fulfill the mitzvah, commandment, of the act. As we enter into the secular year of 2014, may we all measure up spiritually. May we measure our words so as not to slander or embarrass others, and may our good deeds be without measure. As for the waistbands on our pants, may we all strive to reduce the size in order to live healthier. Happy New Year!

Friday, January 3, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, January 3, 2014 www.smcitizen.com On Thursday December 26 the Christmas Spirit Awards were presented to seven deserving winners for their homes beautiful exterior decorations. Judges Janice McLeod; Marion OHern; Holly Bragdon and Donna James had a formidable task in choosing 19 of the best decorated homes and then deciding which seven would be winners. There was no order such as first or second place and no particular categories for the selection committee. The judges had to pick the winners based solely on the esthetic content of the displays that contained figures; animations; lights and greenery. Properties winning this year were Sandy and George Wilson, 10086 SW 63 Ave.; Sandra and Bill Brotherhood, 6073 SW 103 Loop; Pam and Frank Pytlak, 6341 SW 104 Lane; Rochelle and Frank Szabo, 9949 SW 62 Ave.; Pauline and Bob Watson, 6101 SW 103 Loop; Gloria and Forest Ray, SW 61 Court and last but not least, Maryann and Samuel Bennett at 9903 SW 62 Terrace. Our judges presented the winners with placards that were put on the front lawns. Sponsored by Chris and Mario Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management, these awards are designed to show the residents how much our community appreciates their efforts. It is unfortunate that there are only a few winners out of so many contenders. When asked why he put up decorations each year Forest answered that he has a grandson; Matthew, who is 10 years old. He comes down each year at Christmas time and he loves the decorations. Frank Pytlak had a similar answer to the same question. His children and grandchildren come down to visit from North Carolina at Christmas. Not only do they enjoy the display but the decorations remind Frank of home back in Buffalo, New York. Pauline and Bob Watson are old hands at decorating it seems because they won a contest in their community in North Carolina and now they have won here also. Congrats to both of them. Christmas Spirit Awards presented Cherrywood John Everlove One of the Cherrywood decoration winners. Bill Brotherhoods reason for decorating seemed at little bit confused but if you knew Bill that would be totally understandable. He said that he planned to go simple this year with just a couple of decorations but then as he got into it; he added another item and then another until it got totally out of control. Whatever their reason or motivation for lighting up our community at Christmas, the residents and visitors are extremely grateful to the many homeowners who take the time to decorate. Nothing portrays the spirit of the season as much as welcoming colored lights; jolly blow up figures; Nativity scenes; Carols being piped in over outdoor speakers; ornaments and many flowering plants. We congratulate our winners and thank our judges for all their work. We also thank Mario and Chris Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management for sponsoring these awards. You gave us all a very merry and beautiful Christmas. PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 Our ladies can really cook up a storm so you will be assured of getting a good meal mixed with some great company.

This was also a murder mystery tea party. The audience was charged with the task of solving the mystery surrounding the death of the darling Duke of Darjeeling. The cast was decked out in their finery, and each guest was a suspect since each had reason to hate the deceased Duke. One by one, they told of their past history with the Duke and declared their innocence. It was then up to the audience to vote on Who Killed the Darling Duke of Darjeeling. As it turned out, it was Vicki Torian, the Dukes private secretary played by Joan Dopler. The Holly Jolly Tea is always a favorite event in the community, and we enjoy it each year. Thanks to the Tea Committee which included Virginia DiNoto, Liz Herrick, Lois Norris, Pat Smith and Janice Wood; they did a wonderful job putting this all together. The luncheon included many different teas, delicate finger sandwiches, ham salad tarts, Christmas cookies, Cast of Who Killed the Darling Duke of Darjeeling from the left: Donna Schmidt as Fancy Frou Frou, Joan Dopler as Vicki Torian, Lois Norris as Earlene Gray, Paula Adwell as Rose T.

Patriot Dogs is looking for individuals to take a service animal into their lives for two or more weekends each month. The object of this program is to socialize these gentle dogs in all aspects of life. If you go anywhere, all you have to do is to take the dog with you and make sure it is exposed to as many situations and as many people as possible. If youre going to the mall; to the doctor; grocery store; church or any place in between; you just take the dog with you. All veterinary costs and food expenses are paid for so there are few out of pocket cost to foster parents. You need only a big heart; not a big wallet to make a big difference in the world of a wounded veteran. Beverly Carver of the SPCA in Marion County can fill you in on all the details of this terrific project. You can reach Bev at 352-873-6787. This program is open to all qualified Marion County residents but I know of several people here in Cherrywood that would be great foster parents to a Patriot Dog.

This film is filled with action drama; wild special effects and even some humor. It should be great entertainment. Admission is totally free and free iced tea and lemonade along with popcorn is also provided. If you prefer to bring your own refreshments, please feel free to do that too. The chairs from poolside are brought in so you will find comfortable seating in front of our big screen. This month there will be an added fun event. Everyone who attends will be asked to fill out a card on how they liked the movie. Your name isnt required so theres no problem with being totally honest. The purpose of this rating will be explained immediately following the movie. It should be fun. 7 p.m. is show time and everyone who resides in Cherrywood is welcome to enjoy a relaxing and inexpensive evening. Dont miss the masked man and his faithful Indian companion or the chance to be a movie critic.Foster a service dogHow would you like to have a part time pet and help a deserving disabled veteran at the same time? Patriot Dogs is looking for individuals to take a service animal into their lives for two or more weekends each month. The object of this program is to socialize these gentle dogs in all aspects of life. If you go anywhere, all you have to do is to take the dog with you and make sure it is exposed to as many situations and as many people as possible. If youre going to the mall; to the doctor; grocery store; church or any place in between; you just take the dog with you. All veterinary costs and food expenses are paid for so there are few out of pocket cost to foster parents. You need only a big heart; not a big wallet to make a big difference in the world of a wounded veteran. Beverly Carver of the SPCA in Marion County can fill you in on all the details of this terrific project. You can reach Bev at 352-873-6787. This program is open to all qualified Marion County residents but I know of several people here in Cherrywood that would be great foster parents to a Patriot Dog. Your Veterans Club is a strong supporter of the Patriot Dog Project and continues to collect money towards purchasCHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 SEECHERYWOOD, PAGE15 are covered with a $2 donation at the time you register. Limited seating is available for this annual get together so sign up as soon as you can. You wont want to miss a terrific time as you share in this gathering of fellow sports enthusiasts Garden ClubLooking for a way to improve your landscaping and enjoying the outdoors? If your answer is yes, the Garden Club is for you. Join fellow residents at 10 in the morning on Tuesday, Jan. 14 on the patio of the clubhouse. Bring your questions; ideas and plans for your lawn or garden and you will gain a wealth of knowledge and inspiration. Many of our residents are experts in their own right about various types of plants and shrubs and they welcome the opportunity share that knowledge with fellow gardeners. Everything from water features; to types of grass to trimming trees will be discussed along with plans for field trips and guest speakers. You will enjoy the friendly, relaxed atmosphere as you share your interests with others.BocceEach Saturday evening at 7 a faithful group of dedicated players arrives at the Bocce Ball courts behind the clubhouse. With them, they bring another group who cheer them on or just kibitz; depending on their mood. What the two groups have in common is they love to socialize and party. Bring a snack and a drink and come out to enjoy a really great time. If the weather is too chilly, everyone retires to the fireplace in the clubhouse and if its a balmy evening; they all sit on the patio and enjoy each others company. Everyone is always welcome to come out and play or watch or just be there. If you dont know how to play Bocce, its a fun game and easy to learn. There are many players willing to teach newbies the rules and techniques of this ancient game. Dont be shy; come join the gang on Sat. nights and have a great time.Cherrywood Veterans ClubThere will be no meeting in January of the Veterans Club. The next meeting will be Thursay, Feb. 6 at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse. In spite of there being no meeting, some things are still taking place like the Caribbean cruise raffle and nominations for officers. On Feb. 14 we will draw the lucky ticket for the three day cruise for two to the Caribbean. This ticket includes port fees; taxes; and $100 in spending money. You can get your ticket from Geri in the office or from any Veterans Club officer. Wouldnt a fun relaxing trip through the warm Caribbean be a nice way to start the New Year? In March we will be holding elections for the coming year. If you would like to serve your Veterans Club as an officer, please submit your name to John Everlove or plan to be at the February meeting to have your name appear on the ballot. Ladies luncheonJoin the ladies of Cherrywood for an excellent meal; great conversation and relaxed socializing as they gather on Wedneday, Jan. 8 in the clubhouse. All you have to do is bring your own place setting and a dish to pass. Hopefully the dish to pass will have something on it or in it of course.

Friday, January 3, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, January 3, 2014 www.smcitizen.com On Thursday December 26 the Christmas Spirit Awards were presented to seven deserving winners for their homes beautiful exterior decorations. Judges Janice McLeod; Marion OHern; Holly Bragdon and Donna James had a formidable task in choosing 19 of the best decorated homes and then deciding which seven would be winners. There was no order such as first or second place and no particular categories for the selection committee. The judges had to pick the winners based solely on the esthetic content of the displays that contained figures; animations; lights and greenery. Properties winning this year were Sandy and George Wilson, 10086 SW 63 Ave.; Sandra and Bill Brotherhood, 6073 SW 103 Loop; Pam and Frank Pytlak, 6341 SW 104 Lane; Rochelle and Frank Szabo, 9949 SW 62 Ave.; Pauline and Bob Watson, 6101 SW 103 Loop; Gloria and Forest Ray, SW 61 Court and last but not least, Maryann and Samuel Bennett at 9903 SW 62 Terrace. Our judges presented the winners with placards that were put on the front lawns. Sponsored by Chris and Mario Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management, these awards are designed to show the residents how much our community appreciates their efforts. It is unfortunate that there are only a few winners out of so many contenders. When asked why he put up decorations each year Forest answered that he has a grandson; Matthew, who is 10 years old. He comes down each year at Christmas time and he loves the decorations. Frank Pytlak had a similar answer to the same question. His children and grandchildren come down to visit from North Carolina at Christmas. Not only do they enjoy the display but the decorations remind Frank of home back in Buffalo, New York. Pauline and Bob Watson are old hands at decorating it seems because they won a contest in their community in North Carolina and now they have won here also. Congrats to both of them. Christmas Spirit Awards presented Cherrywood John Everlove One of the Cherrywood decoration winners. Bill Brotherhoods reason for decorating seemed at little bit confused but if you knew Bill that would be totally understandable. He said that he planned to go simple this year with just a couple of decorations but then as he got into it; he added another item and then another until it got totally out of control. Whatever their reason or motivation for lighting up our community at Christmas, the residents and visitors are extremely grateful to the many homeowners who take the time to decorate. Nothing portrays the spirit of the season as much as welcoming colored lights; jolly blow up figures; Nativity scenes; Carols being piped in over outdoor speakers; ornaments and many flowering plants. We congratulate our winners and thank our judges for all their work. We also thank Mario and Chris Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management for sponsoring these awards. You gave us all a very merry and beautiful Christmas. PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 Our ladies can really cook up a storm so you will be assured of getting a good meal mixed with some great company.

Come out and laugh in a friendly atmosphere of friendsFrom your reporterThe New Year is upon us and as we wrap up old business and contemplate the challenges to come, I would like to express my appreciation too many who have made not only my past year better; but who have improved the lives of many others. First, let me thank Mr. Jim Clark, editor of the Citizen for his help and patience; the man is a Saint. Thanks also to Geri in the office, I couldnt have done this column without her help and support and to our ace photographer, Holly Bragdon; thank you for your time and trouble in taking the many excellent photos; by the way, happy 25th anniversary to you and David. This has been a team effort and only made possible with the cooperation and assistance of all three of you gifted and special people. To the residents of Cherrywood, thank you for your generous and caring support of the causes we advocate in our community. Toys for Tots; Patriot Dogs; Kidney Foundation; Fischer House; Ritz House; Wounded Warriors and Support our Soldiers to name but a few. All of these programs have been the beneficiaries of your generous giving hearts. In addition, our residents have strongly supported the social events of this past year including 100 Days of summer; Veterans and Memorial Day; Senior Games; Valentines Day; New Years Eve; the fashion show; ladies luncheon; Survivors Dinner and many more. We have a marvelous community of people; some of whom work behind the scenes to make things happen and others who volunteer their time and energy to help them. People like Eve Houghtaling head of the Activities Team; Jay and Fred OHern who lead the Social Committee; Bill Mahar, President of the Veterans Club; Bowling League President Norma Alexander; Rich & Dolly Juber for Bingo and of course our resident disc jockey, Richie Becotte. These are just a few of our hard working leaders. Many county and state leaders have assisted us with all aspects of our community life including John Deakins of Fisher House; Al Morrison of Ritz House; VFW Post 4781 and of course; an anonymous benefactor we call Norm. Each brought their time; talents and expertise to assist us in our work. Lastly, we express our appreciation to Chris and Mario Zacco for their numerous contributions to the quality of life here at Cherrywood. Comedy Night; New Years Eve; Christmas Party; Halloween and more are all made possible thanks to their support and personal interest. My gratitude goes to all of these people and the scores of others who make a positive difference in the lives of so many. Now, I take this opportunity to wish each of you; my fellow residents; my fellow citizens; my readers, a very happy and safe New Year. May health and prosperity be yours; may all of your dreams come true and may love surround you where ever you go.

So why not help your community and yourself by coming down on Wednesday, Jan. 15, and donating blood. Youll be glad you did.Holly Jolly Tea mystery solvedThe fourth Holiday Holly Jolly Tea at Marion Landing turned out to be a lovely luncheon, but this year, there was some unusual and interesting entertainment. This was also a murder mystery tea party. The audience was charged with the task of solving the mystery surrounding the death of the darling Duke of Darjeeling. The cast was decked out in their finery, and each guest was a suspect since each had reason to hate the deceased Duke. One by one, they told of their past history with the Duke and declared their innocence. It was then up to the audience to vote on Who Killed the Darling Duke of Darjeeling. As it turned out, it was Vicki Torian, the Dukes private secretary played by Joan Dopler. The Holly Jolly Tea is always a favorite event in the community, and we enjoy it each year. Thanks to the Tea Committee which included Virginia DiNoto, Liz Herrick, Lois Norris, Pat Smith and Janice Wood; they did a wonderful job putting this all together. The luncheon included many different teas, delicate finger sandwiches, ham salad tarts, Christmas cookies, Cast of Who Killed the Darling Duke of Darjeeling from the left: Donna Schmidt as Fancy Frou Frou, Joan Dopler as Vicki Torian, Lois Norris as Earlene Gray, Paula Adwell as Rose T.

The year 2013 was good for some and not so good for others. 2014 is a new year where more of the same will happen as it always does. The best anyone can do is to savor and also accept whatever each day brings. To open our eyes each day to a new beginning is something to be grateful for although we cant always make it the way wed like it to be. If we want it to be different from this past year, we need to focus on what we want this year to be like. It wont happen unless we take the time to review what didnt work and change our way of thinking and/or doing. As we age in retirement, many of us tend to get lazy and spend our days exactly as we have since we stopped our working lives. Much of it still brings us the type of life we envisioned. Sometimes adding something new can up our joy, health and peace. We will never know if we dont try something different. The New Year can give us a fresh start. Lets make changes that will give us a better life in what ever way holds true for you.Master the PossibilitiesMaster the Possibilities has 19 programs that start next week. The Winter Spring season has begun in a big way. Classes are taught by experienced and credentialed faculty and the variety is indeed impressive.

The shows will be held on March 28, 29 and 30th 2014 with the week previous consisting of rehearsals each day except Wednesday. This show is similar to last years but with parodies set to old, familiar songs, jokes and brief skits about life behind the gates of this community. Rehearsals will be a couple of times a week. The words to the songs will be memorized but the rest will be read. There will, of course, be many other things that you can do behind the scenes if singing and acting is not your thing. Come on out on January the 8th and see what we are all about.

Friday, January 3, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, January 3, 2014 www.smcitizen.com The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage does not allow any pets in our domicile. Something about cleaning up their mess and fleas and other things that I cannot recall. When our last child moved out of the house so did all pets. They are now just fond memories, at least on my side. So no pets are roaming around our house but I do have a variety of pet peeves. My wife graciously allows me to keep my pet peeves as long as I keep them to myself and that they do not mess up the house. For the most part, I try to do that, but occasionally one of my pets escapes from its pen. A pet peeve that recently escaped from its cage is, people taking something out of context to prove their point. You can make anything say and mean anything you want it to say or mean. The politicians have perfected this art and I think it ought to remain within the confines of Washington, D.C. It always amazes me that politicians can virtually say the same thing to different crowds and have it mean different things to separate crowds. Nobody can twist and turn words like professional politician. Just think what these politicians could do if they put this great talent to benefit the people of the United States who elected them. Getting back to my pet peeve. Perhaps a few examples might help explain what I am talking about. In Pennsylvania, we have a saying that if you do not hear the whole thing you might just misunderstand what it is about and jump to the wrong conclusion. The saying goes like this, Throw Papa down the stairs... and if you stop here, Papa may go tumbling down the stairs. However, it is the end of that saying that changes the whole meaning of that phrase, ... his hat. If you focus on the first part of the phrase, you completely misunderstand what it is all about and poor old Papa will suffer the consequences. I wonder how many people have been thrown down the stairs because somebody just heard part of what was actually said. Another one has to do with my wife. We have been married for over 40 years and get along famously but every now and then she will say, Who do you think you are? The first time I heard this I was rather stunned. If I would take that question by itself and divorce it from its context, I might flounder in the sea of despondency. After all, if my wife of 40 something years does not know who I am, something is amiss. Perhaps, after all these years, she is losing it, whatever it is. On the other hand, after all these years she still cannot figure me out. I find that rather silly myself. I am a rather simple person. My wife has a different name for it, she calls it simpleton but it means the same, I think. I distinctly remember one time when she asked this question she caught me off guard and I reintroduced myself to her. Let me just say, I will never make that mistake again. Every so often, she will say in a voice loud enough for everybody in the house to hear, Somebody in this house is getting to be very messy. The first time I heard this I went through the house looking for that somebody not knowing that it was me. At least I am somebody in this house, which is better than, Who do you think you are? It is important to put everything together and in context. Perhaps the most ridiculous example of this is people quoting the Bible. It always amazes me that those who claim the Bible is not really true, always cite the Bible to prove their point. Those who pick out fragments of the Bible to prove their point are rather pathetic. Who has not heard somebody quote Matthew 7:1? Judge not, that ye be not judged. From that, they conclude that Jesus does not want us to judge anybody for anything. If they took the pains to read a few more verses they would find out that they are completely misunderstanding what Jesus is talking about. I have yet to hear somebody pull out Hebrews 12:6, For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. It sort of sounds like judging to me. If somebody wants to excuse something they are doing, they will invariably pull some phrase out of the Bible, always out of context, and hide behind it. It would be like a two hundred pound man hiding behind a golf club thinking nobody can see him. When our grandchildren were younger, they thought if they closed their eyes, we could not see them. Just because they could not see did not mean we could not see. That is OK for small children but when it comes into adulthood, it is quite silly. Jesus also said, Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eyes; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brothers eye (Matthew 7:5). I have read my Bible over one hundred times throughout my life and I have learned one basic truth that goes along with this. True love always judges without being judgmental.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att.net. To judge or not to judge that is the dilemma Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Look around you and notice all the things in daily life that we love to measure: the distance to the theme parks, the length of the driveway for tax purposes, the amount of ounces in a so called pound of coffee, the divisions in cutting a pizza, the number of teaspoons of sugar for chocolate chip cookies, the number of degrees in the temperature scale and the amount of flooring we would need to cover the bedroom. While these are all seemingly mundane measurements, in the Jewish tradition there is a whole set that is used to calculate lengths and amounts of various objects when used for ritual purposes. In the Torah, we are confronted with the measurements used to build Noahs ark (300 hundred cubits long. 50 cubits wide and 30 high.) We are also given the dimensions of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem (length was 60 cubits, its width 20, and its height 40) But what is a cubit in modern measurement? In ancient times, measurements were based on parts of the body. We do the same thing today when we pace out an area by taking precise footsteps. Measurements of length from the biblical/Talmudic periods consisted of etzbah (pl.etzbaot), fingerlength, tefach (pl. tefachim), the measure of a palm or fist, sometimes referred to as a handbreath, zeret (pl. zraot), a handspan and the elusive amah (pl. amot) a cubit. which was the length of the tip of the middle finger to the elbow. On an average sized man, using my husband for an example, the length was 19 inches. Contrast this to me, an average sized woman, and the amount was 16 inches. It is probably safe to say that the male measurement would have been the standard so that can give you an idea how big both Noahs ark and Solomons Temple were. Other measurements used were borrowed from other cultures in the Middle East. In this case we have the mil (pl. milin ) which was a Roman term with an equivalent of 2000 amot (cubits) and parsa which was a Persian measure of length of about 4 milin. When it came to Jewish rituals, measurements were very important. There had to be a standard for what consititued the proper size for a sukkah, for example, or how much matzah that one was obligated to eat on Passover. Beitzah, the volume of an egg and kzayit or the amount or size of an olive are often used as examples when determining portion size for ritual purposes. In these cases, size does matter because an observant Jew would want to eat the proper amounts of ritual foods in order to fulfill the mitzvah, commandment, of the act. As we enter into the secular year of 2014, may we all measure up spiritually. May we measure our words so as not to slander or embarrass others, and may our good deeds be without measure. As for the waistbands on our pants, may we all strive to reduce the size in order to live healthier. Happy New Year!

They have publicly voiced their love and admiration for his life and his personal history. Unfortunately, his life is riddled with contradictions of giant proportions which should be dealt with when assessing his life. But currently these contradictions are being ignored and swept away by those who choose to rewrite history. To praise the totality of his life without acknowledging and censuring his disregard for the sanctity of human life is to deny the dignity of the family as the foundation and guarantee of all other human rights. The right to life is the basis for all human rights. How can any legacy be considered great after promoting the deaths of unborn children? Before Mandelas arrival as president, South Africa had in place a restrictive law against abortion, but he removed all restrictions on abortion in 1996 with a law permitting abortion on demand. This law permits abortion from conception to the day of natural birth. Americas pro-abortion group NARAL is applauding his pro-death record. The Obama administration has ordered all flags be flown at half-staff to respect Mandelas death. When will we do the same to honor the millions of children whose lives are taken on a daily basis because of laws enacted by elected officials with deformed principles? Mabel Ryan Life Education Ministry, Inc. Lets work togetherI recently read a letter written by the vice president of the Tea Party Solutions who blames President Obama for everything that is wrong in America since his first election in 2008. All our president is trying to do is improve the status of hard working Americans who were never privileged enough to have had health insurance for themselves or their families. Calling our president dishonest because he will not bend over backward to help the Tea Party is what I like about a thinking leader. Non believers must get over the fact that who you so readily call liar in chief has done more to help the working class families than our previous administration. Most people that I know that like their health plan are keeping their health plan and most people that I know who like their doctors are keeping their doctors and for most of the years as members of a health plan we have seen minimal increases in their premiums. When people say this is not true then they havent been paying attention to what is going on in the real world where our president should not be blamed for trying to help those that elected him. I feel that if more people tried to help our government do its job to take care of all Americans our country would be better off. Drinking too much tea is bad for your health.

Friday, January 3, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, January 3, 2014 BY RICH LOWRY Special to the CitizenIf at any time while reading this article your attention wanders, you may have ADHD. If you pause to check your email sometime during the next three paragraphs, you should consult a doctor. If you fail to read this article all the way to the end, you should get on Adderall, Ritalin or some other drug to treat your condition as soon as possible. This isnt quite the standard for diagnosing attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, but its close. The New York Times ran a long expose on how the drug industry has stoked the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD that had a revelatory quote from Keith Conners, a doctor who has long advocated for the recognition of the disorder. Conners called the overdiagnosis of ADHD a national disaster of dangerous proportions, telling the Times that the rising number of cases is a concoction to justify the giving out of medication at unprecedented and unjustifiable levels. This isnt bomb-throwing from an outsider, but a critique from the namesake of the Conners ratings scale widely used to evaluate kids for ADHD. There is no doubt that ADHD is a legitimate neurological condition that makes kids (and those around them) miserable, that blights their potential and that can be alleviated by prescription stimulants like Adderall and Ritalin. There also is no doubt that diagnosis and treatment of the disorder has run wildly out of control. According to the forthcoming book The ADHD Explosion, 19 percent of high-school-aged males have received a diagnosis. The numbers differ from state to state. In North Carolina, an astounding 30 percent of boys over age 9 are supposedly suffering from ADHD. Overall, 6 percent of children and adolescents in the United States are on drugs to treat ADHD. Its a wonder more kids arent diagnosed with it, given the overlap between the description of the disorder and failings to which we are all prone. The New York Times points out that the American Psychiatric Association criteria for ADHD include often has difficulty waiting his or her turn and makes careless mistakes, hardly rare childhood behaviors. The drug companies for whom ADHD is a $9 billion-a-year business target mothers with alluring ads suggesting their children will become little angels through the wonders of risk-free stimulants. Their kids will get better grades, spend more quality time with the family and remember to take out the trash. Who wouldnt want their child thus magically transformed? According to the Times report, the Food and Drug Administration has constantly rebuked the companies for going beyond the evidence in selling visions of childhood Valhalla secured through the right drug. Undertrained primary-care physicians and worried parents default much too often to the diagnosis of ADHD and to the answer of a prescription. The next frontier is adult ADHD, with the promise of a vast new pharmaceutical market made up of people deprived of ADHD diagnoses when they were children. Some of these diagnoses will be warranted and life-changing, but others will be overreach prompted by vague and dubious symptoms, like inattentive op-ed reading. Sure, you got to the end of this article. But how about the next one? Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. The Feds want you to see traffic signs, including street signs, better when you drive at night. The debate is whether this will cost local governments money that they dont have. The government, in the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices, issued reflectivity guidelines a few years ago, and all entities, whether state, county or local, must meet those guidelines. When they first came out there was a lot of discussion about the cost. One change particularly caught the eye of some journalists, including me. It said that using all capital letters in street signs was no longer permitted. The signs must be upper and lower case. At first many considered this a mandate, and there were stories popping up about how many dollars were going to have to be spent. A New York City newspaper said the city would have to spend more than a million dollars to replace all its street signs. Even though I had the new regulations, I put off writing about it, figuring that this assessment might not be accurate. Turns out I was probably right, that its not going to be a great financial burden, at least not at once. If I read the new directions properly (I warn you, they are written in government-speak), city and counties can replace signs with the new lettering, but dont have to go out and change every sign right away, only those that have become old and hard to see and if they dont meet the reflectivity rules. Theres something else that needs to be emphasized by regulation, and that is that the county and city must keep the street signs visible. A few months ago, a lady speaking at a county meeting brought up the lack of maintenance in Rolling Hills, an area west of State Road 200 and north of County Road 484. She had a picture showing weeds so high they reached the top of a street sign. There are many locations where signs are partially hidden by trees and bushes or even other signs. Thats something that needs to be discussed. As for the lettering, I kind of agree that the signs need to be upper and lower case. Most newspapers dont run news copy in all capital letters for the same reason it can be hard to read. Here in our county there are many signs that are all capital letters. While they may be a little hard to read, according to the Feds, we really havent heard anyone complain, so the change can be gradual. As is so often the case, although not too burdensome, this is an unfunded mandate from the federal government, which must have thousands of employees just sitting around looking for things to do, so they come up with ideas like this. So if you want to read something when you have insomnia, this excerpt from the manual is available online. Just go to https://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/R 43042.pdf and read. If any hyphens appear in the web address, ignore them. Thats just our computer breaking the copy from line to line. If you come up with a different conclusion than I have outlined, please feel free to writer a letter to the editor. When it comes to government language, if you can clean it up for us, more power to you. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Its time for New Years resolutions, if you go in for such things, so in the spirit of this weeks holiday we bring you our wishes for resolutions by the officials, both elected and non-elected, who run our government, whether local, state or national. Theyre listed in the order of what we consider important, except for No. 6, which really should be at the top of everyones list. 1. Play ball. We havent changed our wish for a stadium, and were not particular about how it gets done. If the politicians are able to come up with a plan that doesnt include a tax, well all be better for it. In a little over two years, however, we hope to be sitting in the stadium taking in a Minor League Baseball game. 2. Protection for our water. Our water districts seem to have a funny way of protecting our water supply they let people take what they want. Its time to clamp down and make sure we have enough natural water here for us, before we allow bottling companies to take it and sell it. Water is not an unlimited resource. We need controls before our supply dries up. 3. A crackdown on armed robbers who are making store clerks their victims. At this time of year there is usually a spike in robberies, and this year was no different. Our store clerks, who are there for our convenience, shouldnt be subjected to constant fear of being robbed by some gun-toting hoodlums, some of whom come from outside the area. More patrols, especially at night, and more sophisticated alarm systems should be planned. Lets make it safer for our local workers. Youll notice, by the way, that the South Marion Citizen rarely publishes the names of store clerks who have been robbed. They have been thrust into the news against their will, and unless they choose to insert themselves into the situation more prominently (such as shooting at a robber), their privacy will be protected. 4. More law enforcement presence on certain roads that have become racetracks. We think mainly of the 31st Street corridor, with the new four-lane road where hardly anyone observes the 40 mph limit. Yes, that limit is low for that road, but its the law and should be strongly enforced with citations handed out every day. And there shouldnt be any favoritism just because the offenders are students headed for a local high school. Teach them now to obey the law, and we may be saving their lives later. 5. Better traffic flow plans and synchronized lights on all the major arteries off the Interstate. Good progress has been made on State Road 200 from Pine all the way to 66th, but after that there doesnt seem to be any organization. If a place such as New York City can synchronize its thousands of lights, we should be able to also. 6. Peace on Earth for all nations, an end to dictatorships that subject the people of certain nations to unbelievable conditions, and respect for life at all levels in all countries. In the words of the late Rodney King, who was once beaten by Los Angeles police, Why cant we all just get along.

He is regarded with honor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE11 January is a very quiet month after all the excitement in November and December, not much going on. After Christmas it always seems like a big letdown. All the decorations come down and all the cookies are gone. But dont dismay, we have next year to look forward to! Now is a good time to prune your crepe myrtles, roses, etc. Also to plan your vegetable garden. Tomatoes grow great here but you have to cover them with netting to keep out the squirrels.New Years Eve PartyIll be waiting to hear how the SCNs New Years Eve party turned out. The sign-up was Dec. 17-18 and hope you got your tickets. Cindy Hutchins always tries to make it a very special evening with many different finger foods, desserts and coffee. 50/50 is always played. Over 50 tickets were sold. The Ocala Jazz band was the entertainment. Hopefully it was an excellent night.Valentine DanceThe next event coming up is the SCN Valentine Day dance on Saturday, Feb. 15.

Cost is only $5 at the door. Refreshments will be an ice cream social. If you never have seen the Pretenders, try to attend as they are really good!DogsI really hate to read in the SCN newsletter that residents are still letting their dogs use neighbors yards for their bathrooms. Unless the neighbors have told you its OK and of course you pick up after them, then you should NOT allow your pet on any other residents lawn. Its only common courtesy so please lets try to correct this situation. I am sure that SCN is not the only community that has this problem.Beware of bears?I had heard there were bears spotted in Spruce Creek North. First deer, then bears? Well the day after Christmas I woke up and went in the kitchen to make some coffee when I happened to look out the window. To my surprise our downspouts from our gutters plus 3 other gutter pieces were in our neighbors yard.. We went out to find the downspout ripped off our house. The pieces were all bent up and part of the siding was pulled out. Now what could have done such damage? Then my husband found part of a rabbit in what was left of the downspout and out in the yard was more fur. Only a bear could have done that damage. It took us four hours to repair and replace all the damaged pieces plus try to fix the siding. It was all so unbelievable! So keep a look-out for these bears and any damage they might do. Hope your Christmas was a merry one plus have a healthy, happy New Year! See you Jan. 18! Regards, JanJan Liberio resides in Spruce Creek North with her husband Jim.

Friday, January 3, 2014 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, January 3, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Some of the decorated houses found in Oak Run Photos by Ron Ratner The Florida Bar, the state's guardian for the integrity of the legal profession, announces that the Florida Supreme Court in recent court orders disciplined 21 attorneys; disbarring two, suspending 17 and publicly reprimanding two. Seven attorneys received more than one form of discipline, with three being placed on probation; one being publicly reprimanded, and three ordered to pay restitution. Pamela Bounds Olsen, P.O. Box 3612, Ocala, suspended for 30 days, effective 30 days from a Nov. 27 court order. Further, upon reinstatement, Olsen is placed on probation for one year. (Admitted to practice: 1991) In five separate cases over a one year period, Olsen received referral fees to which her law firm claimed entitlement and did not share them with the law firm. Court disciplines Ocala attorney Pamela Bounds Olsen for 30 days FAITH By Jennifer Haigh Although the title is Faith, Haighs compassionate story is far more about doubt. It begins when, after two years, Sheila McGann breaks her promise of silence to reveal the truth, as she sees it, about her half-brother Father Art and the accusations that he was a pedophile. She admits that what she has to say is too little too late. Even so, in broad strokes she introduces us to Art, abandoned by his father, ignored by his stepdad and finally welcomed into the arms of the church. Then in Boston on Good Friday 2002 Father Art Breen, now in his fifties, is feeling lost and looking forward to making changes in his life when hes summoned to the churchs administrative office. He has no idea what hes being charged with and why hes being put on leave. In a scene straight out of Kafka hes not told what hes done or the name of his accuser. Since the premise of the novel is clearly how a priest scandal tears one family apart, Sheila delves into each members reaction. Mary, Arts mother, never wavers from her belief that her gentle son is innocent. Baby brother Mike is quick to indict but later regrets his rashness. As for Sheila, she simply vacillates because she says, When it comes to a man like my brother, nothingnothingis clear. Art, with eerie calmness, ignores the battle raging around him as to whether he behaved inappropriately with his housekeepers 8-year-old grandson. And the author suspends the truth until the end, forcing us to consider all the various dimensions of sin. The novel unfolds with several narrative viewpoints; the characters are drawn with great authenticity, the details of this dysfunctional blue-collar family exactly right. Faith is an unsettling tale that sweeps the reader along to its conclusion. Recommended.

Its no wonder why theyre a top fruit juice in kitchens and lunchboxes everywhere. Plus, these tasty fruits are packed with almost 140 percent of immune system boosting vitamin C. Strawberries always put a smile on my face, says Chef Justin Timineri, execu tive chef and culinary ambas sa dor, Florida Department of Agricul ture and Consumer Services. My favorite recipe for them is to simply Rinse, eat and repeat. You can find more snack ideas and recipes at http://bit.ly/floridaberries.Fluffy Stuffed StrawberriesYield: 16 servings 1 pound Florida strawberries 8 ounces low-fat cream cheese, softened 3 ounces low-fat yogurt 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract Cut stems off strawberries and carefully scoop out 2/3 of inside with knife or spoon, creating a cup. Be careful not to make any holes. Cut piece off bottom tip of strawberries to allow them to stand up. Beat cream cheese and yogurt until fluffy. Fold in vanilla extract. Working in batches, place cheese mix ture into pastry or sealable bag with small corner cut off. Fill strawberries with cheese mixture. Garnish with mint and serve. Kids Can: Place cheese mixture into pastry bag and fill strawberries. Grown Up Alert: Adults should stem the strawberries. How to buyChoose strawberries that are plump, fragrant and firm, with no signs of bruising or leaking.How to storeIts best to eat strawberries on the day of purchase. You can freeze strawberries by hulling, lightly wash ing and drying them. Arrange in a single layer before placing in the freezer.Hulling tipsNever hull strawberries until after they have been washed or they will absorb too much water and become mushy.

Scouts from Troop 707 ring the bellOn Dec. 21, Boy Scouts and parents from Troop 707 sponsored by the Ocala West Methodist Church rang bells for the Salvation Army at Publix in the Canopy Oak Plaza. It was a great opportunity to do their daily good turn and earn service hours for future ranks. Some Scouts worked double shifts in spite of sore arms. These are the country's future leaders so it is good to see them helping a charity. The church and Salvation Army really appreciate all the bell ringers around the country. For information about the church or Scouts, contact Jim or Stephanie Salmon at 352-843-0093. Photos by Mike Roppel At left, Logan Baker is ringing a bell. He encourages donations by singing Christmas carols. Below, Logan is joined by his sister, Athena, a member of Girl Scout troop 172, also sponsored by the Methodist church. Must present coupon.

The day of worship will begin at 9:30 a.m. with a traditional style service featuring many of the great hymns that are known and loved by many. Sunday school classes will immediately follow the traditional service. Then a new casual style service will begin at 11:15 a.m. called Cross Training at College Park Church. It will feature the contemporary praise and worship songs of today lead by the College Park Church praise and worship band. The ministry staff of College Park Church includes senior pastor Dr. James L Fleming, associate pastor and youth minister Keith Mitchell, and worship leader Kelly McVey. The church is non-denominational Christian in theology and practice, but is not an independent church. The congregation is vitally connected with 2,300 other congregations whose general offices are in Anderson, Indiana. The decision was made to go to two services in an effort bring more people to Christ by offering more options for them to attend on Sunday mornings. The Cross Training service will offer a unique style with a casual atmosphere that invites people to come as they are. It has long been a mission of College Park Church to reach the students of the College of Central Florida given the churchs close proximity to the CF campus. College Park Churchs worship leader Kelly McVey (who was included as a top four finalist in the JoyFMs cellphone superstar contest this summer) is also a student at the College of Central Florida. Worship is a vital part of being a Christian and Im so thrilled that we are starting this additional worship service. I think its great for new comers or even people who have been attending the church for years to have a couple of options when choosing the worship style they prefer.(McVey) The people at College Park Church are known for their hospitality, love and fellowship. For the first time in my life, I have a personal relationship with my pastor, a church home and a church family. Ive been to huge churches locally and always felt like a number.(Jennifer Speck, church member) College Park Church is one of the most warm and friendly churches that I have ever attended. Everyone is encouraged to attend and participate as much as they would like. (Harvey Radford, church member) College Park Church of God is at 3140 SW 26th St., Ocala, (right across the street from the CF bookstore).

Its now several days after New Years with its parties and celebrations. Some of us are still recovering and now dreading going back to work after the holiday season. Others are thinking about the resolutions they made and wondering how they will keep them. So, take some time out and wander down Pun Alley for some after-New-Years stories.Good intentionsThis year the collectors of antique tents in Germany got together for a rally after the organizers had decided to hold it the quaint city of Meinz. During the event the local burghers were dismayed by the influx of tourists ruining their turf with tent pegs. When the tenters left, the local protesters sang them an anthem, Let Old and Quaint Tents Be Forgot and Never Brought to Meinz.Wrong WayA very drunken man got on a city bus early New Years morning, staggered up the aisle, and sat next to an elderly woman. She looked the man up and down and said, Ive news for you. Youre going straight to hell! The man jumped up out of his seat and shouted, Good heavens, Im on the wrong bus.New Years shotsWhen they were late to the party, they were beaten to the punch. Ive decided on my New Years Resolution. Beginning in March Im going to stop procrastinating. TV news reported that on New Years Eve 40,000,000 Americans went to New Years Eve parties. These are staggering figures. This year my wife gave me a new piece of kitchen equipment. So I celebrated with my New Years Sieve. The rest of you will have to sift for yourselves. Gene drinks a toast on holidays, Heres to our holidays, all 366 of them! The satellite went into orbit on January 1st causing a new years revolution. When I thought about the evils of drinking in the New Year, I gave up thinking. Were so broke, my wife and I stayed home and toasted the New Year. She had rye and I had whole wheat. A high resolution is a promise made on New Years Eve. Ive thought long and hard, and have decided on my New Years resolution. Its 1024x768 (This one is for computer geeks.). John heard that in 2014 there will be a new device that can turn thoughts into speech. Hes had that for years, its called alcohol.ManlyI think women get more excited about New Years Eve than men. If you think about it, you can see why. What do you do on New Years Eve? You drink too much and make a lot of promises you dont keep. You see, men do that all the time, its called dating. A ladys bellyacheTwas just after New Years Day, and all through the house Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse. The cookies Id nibbled, the eggnog Id taste At the holiday parties had gone to my waist. When I got on the scales there arose such a number! When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber). Id remember the marvelous meals Id prepared, The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared, The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese And the way Id never said, No thank you, please. As I dressed myself in my husbands old shirt. And prepared once again to do battle with dirt I said to myself as I only can, You cant spend a winter disguised as a man! So away with the last of the sour cream dip, Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip Every last bit of food that I like must be banished Till all the additional ounces have vanished. I wont have a cookie not even a lick. Ill want only to chew on a long celery stick. I wont have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie, Ill munch on a carrot and quietly cry. Im hungry, Im lonesome, and work is a bore. But isnt that what January is for? Unable to giggle, no longer a riot. Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!Pun Alley resolutionThis column would not be complete without some New Years resolutions. I recommend that you resolve to have more fun and laughs in the coming years. I resolve to try to help this along with Pun Alley every week. Friday, January 3, 2014 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, January 3, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Its a good time to take a much-needed break from your recent hectic schedule and spend some time in quieter surroundings. Important news could arrive early next week. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Taurean traits of reliability and thoroughness could be welltested when decision-makers consider your proposals and/or requests. Be prepared to answer some probing questions. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A sudden attack of boredom leaves you with some tasks undone. Its OK to take a short respite. But get back to work by weeks end so that you have time for other projects. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Avoid prejudging a situation just because it looks bad. Facts could emerge that would make your position uncomfortable, to say the least. A relative has interesting news to share with you. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good time to begin reassessing some of your recent decisions about your long-range goals to see if they still have merit. Spend more time with loved ones this weekend. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) An unsettled situation at home or on the job early in the week could drain your energy levels, making it difficult to get your work done on schedule. But things improve by midweek. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A temporary setback could give you time to go over your plans to find weaknesses you might have overlooked before. A romantic getaway with that special person is favored this weekend. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Professional and personal situations benefit once you set a positive tone in getting things off to a good start. Honest dialogue smoothes over any occasional display of balkiness. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A problem with workplace colleagues or family members seems to defy even your sage counsel. But be patient. Your words eventually will lead to a resolution. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Dont just wait out that unexpected and unexplained delay in your career move. You could gain added respect if you ask why it happened and what you can do to move things along. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Although your workplace strategies usually are accepted, you could be challenged by someone who isnt so favorably impressed. Be prepared to defend your positions. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your friendship circle expands, with new people coming into your life at this time. Welcome them warmly. But dont neglect those cherished longtime personal relationships.(c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

This weeks puzzle answers 000H0JD Free Tests Are Available This Week Only Annual Hearing Test: SMART. Free Annual Hearing Test: GENIUS. 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.

Upon arrival at 24113 NE Water Oak Ave. in the Rainbow Lakes area near Dunnellon, the friend saw the fathers car in the yard with the front windows rolled down. When he went to close the windows, he said he sent the children into the house to see if their parents were there. The children found the couple dead of apparent gunshot wounds. The female, Latalia Robinson, 32, who worked at West Port High School, was found dead, along with her estranged husband, Dean Hamilton, 33, who worked at Cheney Brothers. The couple was separated, and the husband was living in a house with the friend. On the morning of Dec. 28, the children ate breakfast with their mother at the Water Oak Avenue house, then went to be with their father at the other house. According to the report, the children went to bed that evening. In the morning of Dec. 29, the friend asked them to wake up their father, but the children came back and said he was gone. After trying to locate the father all day, the friend decided to go to the childrens house, and had to use a GPS to find the location. That was when the bodies were discovered. When deputies arrived, they found Marion County Fire Rescue personnel putting crime scene tape around the vehicle. Their original call had said someone was in cardiac arrest in the home. The Sheriffs office said the woman was found on the bed in the master bedroom, and the man was found on the floor. A gun was found near the bedpost. There was blood near both victims. According to the report, a judge had previously ordered Hamilton not to return to the Water Oak Avenue house. The report did not list the ages of the children.28~ Friday, January 3, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Children found bodies of parents in Dunnellon Enjoy a vibrant start to 2014 with the First Friday Art Walk on Jan. 3, from 6 to 9 p.m. Enjoy more than 50 individual artist displays, extended shopping hours, and live music on the downtown square.
