BRIEFS Coalition meets Monday afternoonThe State Road 200 Coalition will meet Monday at 1 p.m. at the Collins Center, TimberRidge Building 5000. The original plan had been to discuss the baseball stadium issue. Despite the events of earlier this week, Pat Gabriel, president of the organization, said that could still be the topic. The meeting is open to the public.

There is a possibility that, if a financing proposal is evident by April 2, the agreement could be reinstated, but indications are that such a plan is unlikely. For more than two years, the city and the Yankees had discussed moving the Florida State League Tampa team from Hillsborough County to Ocala. With no facility available, that move would have required the purchase of land and the building of a Minor League stadium. The site chosen was adjacent to Interstate 75, just off State Road 200 in the Heath Brook area. The city went to the county just a few months ago, although the project was announced in the media in December 2012. City officials said that for tax purposes, the county would own the stadium, which would then be leased back to the Yankees. The project also involved the construction of some new roads, and the purchase of some land at the 42nd Street flyover, by the city,24~ Friday, January 10, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Strike 3, Youre Out! Baseball stadium plans dropped Opposition causes Yankees to ask city for end to agreement PLEASESEEYANKEES, PAGE3 THE FATAL GIFT OF BEAUTY The Trials of Amanda Knox By Nina Burleigh The ongoing fascination with realty TV and all things Kim Kardashian took a back seat for a while beside what occurred on Nov. 1, 2007 in Perugia, Italy when British student Meredith Kercher was brutally murdered and winsome, cartwheeling 20-year-old American Amanda Knox was arrested and charged with murder. The Seattle girl had been studying Italian in Perugia when her unconventional behavior coalesced with entrenched Italian fears of ritual conspiracies, female sexuality, and student depravity. Acclaimed author Nina Burleigh flocked to Perugia along with throngs of journalists. She would live there, attend the trial, correspond with the incarcerated defendant, and delve deeply into the history, secrets, and customs of the area. Hers is a thoughtful examination of how the lives of two outgoing housemates turned out so horribly on that night before Halloween.Working against Knox at the outset was her quirky personality and bohemian lifestyle that perfectly fit the prosecutors pre-conceived notions When she did cartwheels and yoga stretches in the police station, Italians could only compare her moves to those on TV in the Berlusconi erajiggly showgirls who giggled in G strings. And there were problems early on between Kercher and Knox who shared a bathroom. Italian toilets took low-flow to a new extreme by requiring a cleaning after each use. Amandas hygiene, however, left much to be desired as Kercher complained to her British friends. Moreover, Meredith Kercher was much more sophisticated than Knox and from a prominent family. When she partied it was almost exclusively with her ERASMUS Institute students from home, leaving Amanda to fend for herself. So naturally the jealousy factor as a murder motive soon surfaced. Although Burleigh recognizes Amandas many flaws that made her her own worst enemyshe was narcissistic, loud, childlike even callous she displays sympathy for the hapless girl who got no legal advice, no help from her American government and thus didnt act in her dire circumstances even when her roommates were all lawyering up. Add to her plight the Italian system of making investigator and prosecutor a single position, confusing blood results, ill-advised statements from the defendant about violent visions she experienced, and her fate was clearly sealed. Burleigh weighed in early on Amandas innocence. Her book was published before the guilty verdict. Today the saga continues with Knoxs 2011 acquittal now overturned in the Italian courts. A worthwhile read.

The Department recommends that all Floridians 6 months of age and older receive a flu shot each year. With peak flu season approaching, it is not too late to get your flu shot, said Dr. Armstrong. Anyone can get the flu, and vaccination is the single best way to protect against flu for Floridas kids, adults, and families. Flu vaccines are offered in many locations, including doctors offices, clinics, health departments, retail stores, pharmacies, and health centers, and through many employers and schools. Check with your physician, your local county health department or www.floridahealth.gov to search for a location to receive a flu vaccine. Key facts: The flu vaccine is the best protection against the flu this season. If you get the flu vaccine, you are 60 percent less likely to need treatment for the flu by a healthcare professional. Getting the vaccine has been shown to offer substantial benefits, including less illness, antibiotic use, time lost from work, hospitalizations, and deaths.

PLEASESEEFLU, PAGE3 The delightful musical comedy Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up? is live on stage from Feb. 6 to March 2 at Ocala Civic Theatre. From the first day of Catholic school to the senior prom, late bloomer Eddie Ryan (Jonathan Williams) spends as much time catching up as growing up in this affectionate valentine to the good times and growing pains of a baby-boomer childhood. The story focuses on his frustrated romance with the devout Becky Bakowski (Melody Murphy) as they struggle with their place in life and how to fit in. Six other classmates join them for this nostalgic coming-of-age journey through the 1950s: Mike Depki, the jock (Ryan Brooks); Mary Kenny, the know-it-all (Melanie Tarter); Virginia Lear, the tomboy (Joan Elizabeth McDonald); Felix Lindor, the nerd (Shannon DeVaughn); Nancy Ralansky, the pretty ditz (Faith Morales); and Louie Schlang, the class clown (Sam Dugger). Providing guidance are Father OReilly, the stern-but-kindly priest (Bill Roughton), and the good sisters who share their wisdom with tough love: sweet Sister Helen (Ginny Riley), scrappy Sister Lee (Suellen DeVito), and fun-loving Sister Monica Marie (Stefanie Knapp). Warm-hearted and good-humored, the show is a delightful musical romp through confession and catechism, patron saints and poodle skirts, guardian angels and gym class, rosaries and rock n roll, best friends and the birds and the bees. Its a divine comedy!

Firefighters responded to a 911 call at 4:47. The first engine company, rescue vehicle and battalion chief to arrive on scene were dispatched from a fire station just down the road, located several hundred feet east on Southwest 20th Street. According to Battalion Chief Mark McEarchern, firefighters used several sets of hydraulic extrication equipment and hand tools to safely remove the two heavily entrapped occupants. Firefighters remained on scene for more than five hours. It took almost two hours to extricate one occupant, and to 2 hours 39 minutes to remove the second occupant. A trauma surgeon was brought to the scene for consultation from Ocala Regional Medical Center. Both patients are in critical condition at the time it was written. In total, 17 firefighters responded to the scene including a fire department chaplain. Heavy equipment trucks from Ocala Utility Services were called to the scene to stabilize the severed pole and de-energize the wires while firefighters worked below the power lines.

land at the 42nd Street flyover, by the city, where a new road would intersect. At Mondays hastily called Ocala City Council meeting, Council President John McLeod read a letter from Tony Bruno of the Yankees, in which Bruno pointed out that the project had, according to him, encountered unexpected opposition. He therefore asked that the current proposal be withdrawn but said he would be happy to consider other proposals in the future. The council members present voted unanimously to suspend the agreement, and then authorized McLeod to appear before the County Commission the next day, Tuesday, Jan. 7, to advise them that it was no longer necessary to proceed with the ordinances authorizing a referendum, and also that a proposed ordinance allowing alcohol sales was not needed. They city also halted the purchase of the land near the flyover. Council member Mary Rich and Mayor Kent Guinn did not attend the noon meeting. McLeod made a brief appearance at the regular County Commission meeting Tuesday at the time that a public hearing had been scheduled for the ordinances, 10 a.m. He made a brief statement asking what he had been authorized to ask. County commissioners then voted not to proceed with the ordinances and no hearing was held. Earlier in the Tuesday meeting, a couple of speakers had urged to county to vote anyway so people could see where they stand, but that action was not taken. At Mondays meeting, the city said it had spent about $300,000 on the project, money that could not be recovered. Councilman Brent Malever said the taxpayer money would have gone a long way to other things. After a short discussion on the fact that there would be a study of what could be done in the future, City Manager Matt Brower commented, There are lessons to be learned so we dont stumble again. The objections that surfaced in the county were not aimed at having a baseball team, but spending taxpayer money to fund a new stadium. The city had asked the county to put a half-percent sales tax on the ballot, but commissioners could not come up with an agreeable plan. At a work session held weeks ago at the Livestock Pavilion, an overwhelming number of speakers were in favor of the project, with members of the business community and Chamber and Economic Partnership leading the way. However, at almost all the subsequent County Commission meetings, the feelings tilted the other way, with the majority of speakers talking against the stadium. One part of the project that will move ahead actually was approved in the countys five-year plan before the stadium was even mentioned. The 49th Avenue extension, which will be a north-south route that could take some traffic off State Road 200, is still planned. It would have run in front of the stadium, and will still be planned through that area to open up more commercial development. It will intersect the 42nd Street flyover at the existing short road just a block off SR 200. The county authorized continuation of that project as a separate item on Tuesdays agenda.

It takes about two weeks after vaccination for the body to develop antibodies that provide protection against influenza virus infection. In the meantime, you are still at risk for getting the flu. That is why it is better to get vaccinated early in the fall, before the flu season gets under way. FLUCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 It is especially important for pregnant women to be vaccinated due to the increased risk of complications associated with contracting the flu while pregnant. The Department has received several reports of pregnant women with influenza-like illness from around the state. The flu vaccination is safe and will protect against the flu for mothers, unborn babies, and newborns during the first months after birth.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has notified city officials that it has found no deficiencies during its annual inspection of the Ocala International Airport. City officials were notified of the positive inspection results through a letter from Jack McSwain, airport certification and safety inspector, FAA Southern Region, Airports Division. This inspection, which is conducted annually, is designed to ensure that the airport is meeting stringent FAA standards. It covers all aspects of airport operations, including self-inspection programs, pavement management for runways and taxiways, airfield markings and lighting, No deficiences found in airport inspection training and inspection records, fuel inspection records, wildlife mitigation, airport certification manuals and emergency preparedness. Though the inspection is only conducted annually, a small but efficient Airport Operations staff of three is responsible for meeting those FAA standards year round, and has at least one person on duty seven days per week. As part of the inspection, Ocala Fire Rescue personnel had to demonstrate that they meet FAA standards related to airport familiarization, airport communications, aircraft familiarization, aircraft emergency evacuation and firefighting operations. We commend you for the procedures you are using in the day-to-day operation of the airport. The appearance of the airport indicates they are effective, McSwain wrote in the letter.

Please give us a call at 352-362-0985 if you would like more information about our meetings or have any other questions for us. Thanks to all in the community who came out to support us at Barnes and Noble this holiday season. We wrapped gifts on four days from mid December through Christmas Eve and were thrilled with the generosity of our friends and neighbors. Without you, we cannot help all the animals and people who depend on us all year. Adoption NewsWe have happy news to give you. All three kittens we highlighted in last months column have been adopted into loving homes. They were the three brothers that were left to fend for themselves on State Road 200 near Pine Run until a number of Good Samaritans stepped in to rescue them. We wish them and their families a happy and healthy 2014. There are still three young cats available for adoption if youve been yearning for a new furry member of the family. They can be adopted out individually, in pairs, or the whole kit and caboodle can go together if you have room. Coco the tuxedo cat will turn two years old in March. He likes to cuddle and eat snacks more than anything else in the world. He wants to have all your attention, so he would prefer a home without dogs or small children. Ebony is a one and a half year old black female. She appeared as a stray kitten looking for food and living with the wildlife until Arlene took her in. She is the most independent of the three, given her early experiences. Her best friend is five year old Smokey, who grooms and plays with her. He came to live with Arlene and the other cats right after Ebony showed up. He was injured on his neck and ear at the time, but is now completely healed. These cats are all quite young and will give you a lifetime of love and happiness. Now that all the kittens have found homes, wouldnt it be wonderful for the remaining clan to finally get their turn? Please call Arlene at 875-9761 to find out more. This can be the start of a beautiful friendship. Thank You Cherrywood Veterans ClubLast month the Cherrywood Veterans Club presented Patriot Service Dogs coordinator Julie Drexel with a $2,500 check so that a new service dog can be socialized and trained as a companion to a disabled military veteran. In just a couple of months, the club collected donations from many individuals throughout their community, VFW Post 4781 and an anonymous donor. The new dog will be named Al, in memory of past Veterans Club officer Al Buechter. Three cheers for the Veterans Club and Cherrywood for helping to make dreams come true.

Friday, January 10, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, January 10, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Romantic aspects are high at this time for single Lambs looking for love. Warm and fuzzy feelings also are at enhanced levels for Rams and Ewes in paired relationships. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This week favors what Taureans dote on namely, love and money. Look for more meaningful relationships for both singles and pairs, as well as an improved financial outlook. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) All lingering shreds of that recent bout with boredom are dissipated as you eagerly accept a challenging offer. Your positive mood persuades others to join you in this venture. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might need validation for a possible solution to a situation involving someone close to you. Consider asking a trusted friend or relative to help you with this problem. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Investigate carefully before agreeing to assist a friend or colleague with a problem. There might be hidden factors that could emerge later that will create problems for you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your decision to work with an associate rather than go it alone, as you first proposed, brings an unexpected bonus. Be careful not to be judgmental. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A loved ones health problem could, once again, make demands on your time and attention. But this time, make some demands of your own, and insist that others pitch in. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a good time for the traditionally staid Scorpion to plan adjustments in your day-today schedules. Be more flexible and allow for more impromptu, off-thecuff actions. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Avoid creating unnecessary fuss over a situation you dont approve of. If its going to work, it will do so despite your objections. If it fails, it will do so without a push from you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Working with a trusted colleague could open your mind to exploring some considerations you previously dismissed. The weekend brings news from a loved one. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Resolving a recent problem leaves you in a good position to strengthen your influence on how things get done. But continue to encourage ideas and suggestions from others. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A new friend suggests an interesting opportunity. But check it out before you snap at it. It might be a good deal for some people, but it might not work in helping you reach your goals.

Music by Mitch & DianeFriday, January 10, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, January 10, 2014 When its wrong, its wrongI, as well as the whole country, have been forced to read too much about gay marriages and abortion. In the past few months, its been plastered everywhere and imposed on our society. When you address the topics, you have to ask yourself are you a believer in God and Creation or just floundering. Lets play the non-believer game. If you dont believe, then instead of Adam and Eve, you would have Adam and Arnold, or possibly, Eve and Evelyn. In that case there would be no Cane and Able or even U.S. Interesting? Then if you believe in abortion, and every woman had an abortion, there would be no U.S, and the nonmedical public has no idea what a fetus goes through during an abortion. Horrible! Now, which came first, the chicken or the egg? Good question, and no real answer. Then I ask, which came first the Creation and the Bible or the Constitution? We all know the answer to that. Being a church music major in college, I know the Constitution didnt come first. When people rattle the constitution sword, thats just what theyre doing, rattling a sword against others who dont believe as radically as they do. There werent any guns back in biblical days. Not in the Bible, but right there in the Constitution. Now I ask you which is best? If I have to answer that question for you, youre brain dead. The Constitution is a lot of words just as is the Magna Carta, North Atlantic Treaty, or any guidelines for any country. Oh yes, if you dont know what the Magna Carta is, just ask. Point here is, are we a society of believers or are we a society of lost people? Each of us have to ask that question. I know my answer. Its said we are a society of laws, consequently lawyers. Wow! Bill Ford OcalaBlood donors thanksYou may pass them in the aisle at the grocery, sit next to them in church or see them stepping off of a school bus right here in our community are a quiet group of people who are saving lives because they make the decision to donate blood. January is set aside nationally as Blood Donor Awareness Month, and LifeSouth would like to thank all of those who donated blood in the past year. Whether it was a blood drive at school, at work, in the parking lot of a shopping center or at one of our donor centers, this special group of people made an impact for people living right here. There are thousands of people who survived to welcome 2014 because these anonymous lifesavers decided to take a few minutes out of a day to make a difference. Cancer patients, trauma victims, newborn babies and many more benefitted. Nationally, donor numbers are small just more than 4 percent of Americans give regularly. Fortunately, many come back again and again to help. They have saved the lives of our neighbors, our friends and possibly their own family members, and they could certainly use some help in 2014. At a time when were still considering our New Years resolutions, think about becoming a blood donor or giving more often because that change could help someone right here in Marion County. An investment of a few minutes could mean a lifetime of difference for someone in the coming year. Ed Keith District Director LifeSouth Community Blood CentersAngel Project thanksThe Ocala 200 Lions Club and Sammys Italian Restaurant wish to thank the community for their support of the recent Christmas Tree, take an Angel Project, to purchase a gift or toy for the children of the Domestic Violence Center. It really made their Christmas wonderful. Arlene Pieczynski Ocala 200 Lions ClubLegalizing Sin?Some of us still believe in sin, some do not. Why do free people permit, endorse, condone, and encourage : immorality, amorality, brutality, barbarism, greed, lying, cheating, power lusting, crude behavior? It has become the preferred form of entertainment. Turn on the TV, and see if you can find an alternative. Much of it legalized by bureaucrats. This is one tool in the kit of useful idiots, trying to destroy our system of life. Trying to root every semblance of God from our way of life. A tried and true tool used by communists over and over. Seems no one catches on, no matter how many times it is tried. When will we wake up? Theres a scene in the movie Back to the Future where Doc Brown, in 1955, laments to a picture of Thomas Edison that he cant create enough electricity to send his time machine back to 1985. But even Christopher Lloyd in the movie probably never envisoned that Toms original light bulb would go the way of the dinosaur. Government, particularly the feds, does all sorts of things to us. It imposes taxes we dont want, it mandates health care that many of us dont want, it moves holidays around at its own whim to get extra days off, not necessarily to honor anyone, it restricts things communities can do with their roads, with their water, etc. Thats why it shouldnt come as a surprise that it is mandating what type of light bulbs we use. Now we have to go to halogen or those twisty things that are labeled so confusingly that you cant tell what youre getting. The old incandescent light bulbs can no longer be imported or manufactured in the U.S. as of Jan. 1. When the store shelves run out of your favorites, guess what? Unless youre a romantic who wants to see by candlelight, you have to go with the newer bulbs, or fluorescent lights. Youll still have varying sizes, and there was one story that said that three-way bulbs will still be available in the new style, but forget the old ones theyre history. Not too long ago, when these twisted bulbs came out, not knowing any better, I replaced the three in my bathroom with three of the new ones of the same wattage. Within moments, I heard what sounded like a sizzling sound and I turned the switch off immediately. How was I to know back then that the new ones were a lot more powerful than the old ones, and just one would have done the trick. The environmentalists who are pushing these (arent they pushing everything?) say that well save money because the newer bulbs will last longer. Of course, the new bulbs are a lot more expensive, so it will take a college algebra major to figure out if you really will save money or not. There was already evidence last week that people were hoarding light bulbs, of all things. Its a case of government ramming something down our throats again, and of people fighting back to keep new things from entering their lives. I just saw a TV commercial for one of those battery-powered, wall-mounted non-electric lights that you push to get things illuminated. I wonder if I can get enough of them to light my house? Meanwhile, Im trying to remember where we put those candles. They might come in handy.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Imagine that youre involved in a major project, one thats getting lots of public scrutiny, is enormously important, and is controversial enough that you expect and your lawyers warn that there will be lawsuits. Wouldnt you proceed cautiously, documenting every step of the process if only to practice that timehonored tradition of CYA? It seems like the common-sense course of action. Unfortunately, state legislators who worked on Floridas once-a-decade redistricting dont share the thought. They admitted that some records being sought in a lawsuit challenging the 2012 redrawing of political boundaries were destroyed. The destruction was done, they said, according to policy. Hogwash. Florida has an extensive public records law and pages upon pages of rules about records retention and disposition. Lots of rules, sometimes confusing. Even so, is it reasonable to think that documents associated with redistricting which essentially determines how politics are played in this state should not be retained as long as, for example, proclamations (two calendar years), parking decal/permit records (two fiscal years) postage/shipping records (three fiscal years), or local government mileage reports (five fiscal years)? Whats happening isnt the way things ought to be done. Our Sunshine laws were created to put a stop to the publics business being conducted in the shade to the benefit of those in power. Well, the thinking goes, if you cant conduct public business in private, the next best thing is to arrange for your side to get most of the seats at the table. It happens every 10 years, and both parties have tried to do it. At the heart of the issue are Florida Constitution changes approved by voters in 2010 regarding how to conduct the redrawing of legislative and congressional district boundaries. The new constitutional language says, in part, No apportionment plan or district shall be drawn with the intent to favor or disfavor a political party or an incumbent; and districts shall not be drawn with the intent or result of denying or abridging the equal opportunity of racial or language minorities to participate in the political process. The legislatures first effort at district mapping in 2012 was rejected by the Florida Supreme Court, which found that the state Senate map was drawn to favor incumbents and rife with improper intent. The court made them rework it. Now, Floridas League of Women Voters (LWV) is in Leon County Circuit Court saying that the existing Senate mapping is still infected with intentional bias. In connection with the suit, they recently won an opinion from the Florida Supreme Court establishing that lawmakers can be made to testify about how they drew the new districts. Also, the LWV requested documents about the process but legislators say those documents were destroyed. The LWV insists that Florida voters should be up in arms about these missing records. We agree. If the LWV prevails in the current lawsuit, lawmakers could have to redraw the districts again before the 2014 elections. It may be messy, but at least those involved would be held accountable and we need more of that. A better option? Political mapping should be in the hands of an independent commission, not legislators getting input from their party cronies.Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Once God is rooted out of a society, the power lusters show their true intent. Power, and privilege for themselves, and friends, and (the big and) slavery for the rest of us. Look at Germany, Russia, Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, etc. Read: Shakedown Socialism. Why? Why are we so easily fooled, over, and over? Do you want to be a slave? Todays generations have had it tooooo easy. They have no clue what privation is. Perhaps, they had to wait a week to get their tech toy, (major privation.) They have no appreciation for, or perspective on freedom. No clue what they are throwing out the door. Humans have yearned for freedom forever, and now that it has been hard won, these useful idiots want to trade it off for slavery once again? Anyone think this is a smart idea? How do you educate a useful idiot? Any and all suggestions welcome. Hurry, please. God said: If you mend your wicked ways, I will help No mending, no help. Pretty clear message. Shall we get started mending? Cut the useful idiots at the knees. How? PU Political Uncorrectness. Operation Pushback. They say no God, we say yes God, in a thousand ways. D.I. Larson OcalaFriday, January 10, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, January 10, 2014 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Iwas sitting on the back porch sipping an ice-cold tea with a splash of lemon when I received a text from a relative up north. I was enjoying a pleasant afternoon basking in the winter sun of Florida. I am not sure what God was thinking of when He created the north with all that bad weather and snow and such, but I know what He was thinking of when He created the South especially Florida. He was thinking in particular of me and my insatiable love of the sun. Basking in the Florida sun is the great reward of being smart and moving to Florida. I have some friends who were born in Florida and think they are a little bit better than me. I remind them that they had no choice of being born in Florida but I, on the other hand, moved to Florida on my own volition. I think I have the upper hand on that one. I may be old but I certainly do delight in the modern technology. It used to be that when you got a call from a relative you had to answer the telephone and talk to the person on the other end for as long as they hung on. Today, thanks to modern gadgetry; when a relative wants to contact me, they usually do it by text. I love it. Getting a text is a strange thing, or it can be. If I do not respond right away, I can always claim that there is something wrong with my cell phone and my texting isnt working right today. Then I can get back to that relative whenever it suits me. Or, as the case with some relatives, and you know who I mean, I can ignore it. Cold is as cold feels and I dont like feeling cold If you are a relative of mine and have not heard from me or had any of your text answered the simple answer is, I am not really ignoring you (ha ha ha) my cell phone is not working correctly. This relative that texted me was complaining about how cold it was up north and even had the courtesy to send me a picture of their backyard just chock-full of some white substance known as snow. The text read, I bet you wish you were here to enjoy this. I think that relative would have lost that bet for sure. I love those snow scenes on postcards or in text messages like this one, but as to be personally involved with all of the frigid snow, do not bet on me! Years ago, Cold and I experienced a deep disagreement and we have been separated ever since. As far as I am concerned, the separation is final! I really do not want anything more to do with Cold. We are not even on speaking terms. Cold, after all, is a relative thing especially when the relatives are up north in the winter. Up north, they complain when the temperature falls below 30. Here in Florida I complain when the temperature falls below 70. Whenever the temperature dips below that magical 70, I have to break out one of my sweaters. What an inconvenience for me to have to put on a sweater because it is just a little bit cool on the outside. Then my relative sent me a picture of her standing in the snow looking like the abominable snowman. She had more clothes on than I actually own and have in my closet. I wonder how she walks around wearing all those clothes? How in the world does she ever sit down wearing all those clothes? And what about that thing wrapped around her head? We have hats here in Florida but not quite like the one she was wearing. It looked like she was wearing some igloo. At this point in my life, I could not afford, for a variety of reasons, to move back north. I do not think my relatives up north could put up with me at this point. They offer me a friendly invitation to come Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 This trip is scheduled for Jan. 26 through the 29 and its filling up fast with reservations. With all that Biloxi and the IP have to offer; its no wonder. There are many perks that come with this package including food and gaming tokens so dont miss out on this way to get over the post holiday blues. Call Natalie today to get your reservations. Her number is 854-4561.From your reporterThe holidays are over and like everyone else; your reporter is saying Whew! Company is gone; pine needles are vacuumed for the last time; all of the Christmas cookies have been eaten and the last shred of wrapping paper has been crumpled into the trash. Sitting back, I look at all the activities and parties that we had as a community over the holidays and take a deep breath. Also, I remember what weve accomplished in the past year and look forward to even greater deeds in the coming 12 months. For now, however, at least the next few weeks, Im enjoying the less busy schedule of January. In conversations, many of my friends have shared their New Years resolutions with me. Most want to lose weight; quit smoking or drinking; get more exercise; live healthier life styles and/or save more money. These are not uncommon goals but for many, they are difficult to attain. Im not sure why however. Obviously if you werent spending money on cigarettes or alcohol; you would save money right off the top. Walking is exercise and its free; thus, more money saved. Exercise, along with not eating or drinking will drop pounds off so losing weight shouldnt be difficult at all; so whats the problem? Unfortunately, most resolutions, alas, will go unfulfilled so I have decided that for my resolutions; Im setting goals that I can reach with success. First, Im going to gain 20 pounds this year or at least give it a good shot. Ive heard that fat people are jolly people and I need all the jocularity I can get. A diet of pizza and chocolate cake should do the trick nicely. Next, Im going to drink more beer and wine in the hopes of not caring what is happening in the world around me. This might seem a little selfish but if it ticks off my family and friends, Ill have fewer commitments and absolutely no expectations placed upon me. Exercise will be covered with my increased beer drinking because Ill be doing 12 oz curls with my right arm. To round things off, Im taking up cigar smoking. This coupled with a little chewing tobacco should make for a great new year. As for money, Ill spend it on wine; women; gambling and desserts; the rest Ill just squander. Of course these are tongue in cheek resolutions. My only true New Years resolution is my commitment to you the reader to try and do a better job in 2014. I will endeavor to give you all the information about Cherrywood and our very active community. While attempting to bring some humor into the articles; I will always present you with facts and information that are consistent with the high standards of the Citizen Newspaper. If you have suggestions or comments about the articles in the Cherrywood section of your Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I always enjoy hearing from you, the reader. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 With the end of the holiday season, clearance sales of all kinds have been taking place. Lots of good items that just didnt sell earlier and specials that didnt fit in with buyers plans are being cleared out. Here in Pun Alley the situation is similar. Good stories that didnt fit in any of the themes of last years columns have accumulated. Today you get to read them in our own clearance event.Fall outAs a group of soldiers stood in formation at an Army base, the Drill Sergeant said, All right! All you idiots fall out. As the rest of the squad wandered away, one soldier remained at attention. The Drill Instructor walked over until he was eye to eye with him, and then raised a single eyebrow. The soldier smiled and said, Sure was a lot of em, huh, sir?Engineering Hell.When an engineer died, Saint Peter carefully checked his records and, not seeing the engineers name listed there, he sent him down to Hell. It didnt take long before the engineer became dissatisfied with the comfort level there. He designed and built improvements. Shortly thereafter, Hell had air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators. Needless to say, the engineer was a pretty popular guy. One day God called Satan and asked, So, how are things in Hell? Satan replied, Hey, things are going great. Weve got air conditioning, flush toilets, and escalators. And theres no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next. What! God exclaimed, Youve got an engineer? Thats a mistake; he should never have been sent to Hell. Send him back to me. Not a chance, Satan replied, I like having an engineer on the staff, and Im keeping him! God insisted, Send him back or Ill sue. Satan uproariously laughed and answered, Yeah, right. And where are you going to get a lawyer?PunishmentWhen it comes to buying groceries, actors are not prudent consumers. They prefer a small roll to a long loaf. Why the toothbrush in your coat lapel?

I really could not handle it. As soon as the temperature dropped below 70, I would be complaining, grouching and working on everybodys nerves. I would be such a nuisance that they would have to get together and buy me a plane ticket back to sunny Florida. My relatives should thank me for not moving up north to enjoy the snow with them. See how much I am saving my relatives? Do they appreciate it? No relationship is quite like that relationship that spans several hundred miles. You know the old saying, Absence makes the heart grow fonder. So, if you add distance to that absence you have the epitome of a wonderfully fond heart. Many things separate us from one another. Sometimes that separation is voluntary and sometimes it isnt. The apostle Paul understood that nothing could separate him from God. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:38-39). It does not matter how cold it is outside as long as inside there is a warm relationship with God bordering on fiery expectation.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 e-mail jamessnyder2@att.net.

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) College Park Church of God is at 3140 SW 26th St., Ocala, (right across the street from the CF bookstore).

Now, you can be a part of this worthwhile project by opening your home and your heart. On week ends these service dogs in training need a place where they can be a part of an ordinary living situation. Getting used to people and strange places is one of the keys to educating these dedicated and loving animals. If you have a couple of week ends per month to provide this kind of opportunity to a service dog, we need your help. You can bring the dog into your home at no financial cost to you personally. All that is needed is for you to spend time with the dog and take it where ever you go. If you are going to a grocery store; department store; meeting; dinner; or church, take the dog with you and introduce it to a variety of environments. Over the course of the months that you will be doing this, you will develop a strong attachment to the animal and vice versa. Dont worry about that because when the time comes to say goodbye to your four legged friend; you will know that it is moving on to serve an American hero. This program is open to any qualified resident of Marion County but I know my Cherrywood residents and there are many of you who would be excellent at this type of giving situation. Please call Bev Carver at the SPCA and let her know you are interested in becoming a Patriot Dog foster care giver. Her number is 873-6787. If you would like to make a tax deductable donation to the Patriot Dog Project make your check or money order out to the Cherrywood Veterans Club; mark Dog in the memo portion of the document and mail it to 6253 SW 100 Loop; Ocala Fl. 34476. Make this New Year a better one for yourself; for a hero dog in training and for a hero. Youll know that you are truly making a difference that matters.Cribbage ClubMondays; 12:30 in the card room of the clubhouse; have fun with a great game and some pretty great people.

FAMILY FEATURES Making dishes worthy of a choice restaurant menu doesnt mean spending hours in the kitchen. Its more about choosing topdrawer ingredients and here are a few you can pick up in the deli department. Theyre all members of an elite club of authentic foods made according to traditional methods and are certified PDO (Protected Denomination of Origin) by the European Union. Grana Padano a cheese made only in the Padana Valley in Northern Italy, is terrific for easy but sophisticated dishes. Prosciutto di San Daniele is a special ham, produced in San Daniele del Friuli, in the Northeast of Italy, and like all PDO products, it must pass the strictest inspection. Parmigiano Reggiano renowned for its complex flavor, is made exclusively in Parma, Reggio Emilia and three other neighboring Italian provinces. Prosciutto di Parma a delicately flavored, all-natural ham, is produced in the gently rolling hills near Parma. With legendary European foods, its easy to make restaurant-quality dishes like these. For more serving ideas and information about the PDO system, visit www.legendsfromeurope.com. Introducing Montasio CheeseMontasio, with a savory, wellbalanced flavor, is new to many Americans, but its origins can be traced back to a 17th-century monastery. To this day, it is made only in northern Italys Friuli Venezia Giulia and East Veneto and has earned membership in Europes hall of fame as a PDO product. Young semi-soft Montasio is terrific on a cheese platter or on sandwiches. Aged Montasio can be grated for pasta, risotto and other dishes. Parmigiano Reggiano-Spinach PuffsYield: about 3 dozen 4 cups baby spinach (6 ounces), cooked, cooled 3/4 cup flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper 3/4 cup milk 5 tablespoons butter 3 large eggs, at room temperature 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) coarsely grated Parmigiano Reggiano Preheat oven to 400F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Wrap spinach in a towel, squeeze until dry; chop fine. In small bowl, mix flour, salt and cayenne. In medium saucepan, bring milk and butter to a boil. Remove from heat and add flour mixture; with wooden spoon, beat until it thickens and pulls away from sides, about 1 minute. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well until incorporated. Stir in spinach and cheese. Drop rounded spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets, spacing 1 inch apart. Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm. (Puffs can be held at room temperature up to 1 day or frozen; reheat in 400F oven, 3 to 5 minutes.)Bruschetta with Skillet-Seared Mushrooms and Grana PadanoYield: 4 portions 4 slices country-style bread 4 ounces Grana Padano, coarsely grated 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 pound crimini mushrooms, thinly sliced 1 small red bell pepper, cut in 1/2-inch pieces 2 cloves garlic, cut in slivers 2 teaspoons flour 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1/3 cup half-and-half Preheat oven to 400F. On baking sheet, toast bread until crisp, about 10 minutes. Scatter one-third of the Grana Padano over toast. In large skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil; add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until they give off liquid, about 5 minutes. Stir in bell pepper and garlic; cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat. Stir in flour, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, 2 minutes; add half-and-half and simmer until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. DivideoverbruschettaandtopwithremainingGranaPadano.

Friday, January 10, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, January 10, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Cherrywood residents came out in force to celebrate the arrival of 2014 with a gala New Years party that included delicious hand selected foods; first class entertainment by the Rainbow Connection and good old fashioned reverie. Party favors were at each place setting on the tables and champagne at midnight topped off the evening as everyone bid farewell to 2013 and toasted in the New Year. The food table was filled with delicacies such as Swedish meatballs; salami; a variety of cheeses and crackers; grapes; pizza rolls and home made desserts. Everyone snacked on the wonderful hors doevres and either sipped a special punch or enjoyed the various beverages that they had brought with them. Eve and her Activities Committee went all out this year with trays of food that included a huge plate of home made cookies supplied by our resident bakers; Frank Juarbe and David Rondinelly. Enhancing the array of good food was the now famous signature punch prepared by Fred and Jay OHern. This one of a kind beverage allowed each guest to enjoy unique taste of the holidays. Rainbow Connection is a three piece combo with the sound of a big band and they played their hearts out for us. The drummer gave a solo that knocked the socks off of all that were there and the keyboard player produced sounds that were reminiscent of Glen Miller and Tommy Dorsey among many others. The trumpet player gave all the music a classic style and elegance. The band has a fantastic repertoire of songs from the 40s; 50s and right up to the present day music. Also, they can do Country and Western as good as anybody in Nashville. That fact was underscored by the large number of people who were line dancing. Speaking of dancing, one of our residents was seen doing the Monkey. No names were mentioned but his initials are BB. Very entertaining I was told. As the midnight hour approached, the corks of the champagne bottles at each table began to pop. Noise makers were tested and everyone stood up as the band counted down the seconds. Finally, it was midnight and in traditional style, the Rainbow Connection played Cherrywood marks beginning of new year Cherrywood John Everlove PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE12 Auld Lang Syne; people kissed; and wished each other all good things for the New Year.

Many of these individuals have special needs that are not met by the Veterans Administration. It falls then on individuals and organizations such as your Cherrywood Veterans Club to fill in the voids of these services. One such area that your Veterans Club has become involved with is the Patriot Dog Project. This is a totally volunteer run program to provide service dogs to Veterans who are suffering from physical and emotional debilitating injuries suffered in combat. More than just a companion, these service dogs assist the veteran in their every day activities and allow the vetPLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE15 Our Redeemer Lutheran Church LC-MS 5200 S.W.

Arrange Prosciutto di San Daniele and orange segments over asparagus; sprinkle with pine nuts.Ziti with Roasted Cauliflower, Prosciutto di Parma and Toasted BreadcrumbsYield: 4 portions 2 slices country-style bread, crusts removed, torn into pieces 1/3 cup olive oil, divided 1 large cauliflower (2 1/2 pounds), trimmed and chopped 1/4 teaspoon salt 8 slices Prosciutto di Parma (4 ounces), cut into 1-inch squares, divided 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped 8 ounces dry ziti, cooked and drained, reserving 1 cup pasta water 1/2 cup dry white wine 1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley 1/4 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes, or to taste Preheat oven to 425F.

FAMILY FEATURES Making dishes worthy of a choice restaurant menu doesnt mean spending hours in the kitchen. Its more about choosing topdrawer ingredients and here are a few you can pick up in the deli department. Theyre all members of an elite club of authentic foods made according to traditional methods and are certified PDO (Protected Denomination of Origin) by the European Union. Grana Padano a cheese made only in the Padana Valley in Northern Italy, is terrific for easy but sophisticated dishes. Prosciutto di San Daniele is a special ham, produced in San Daniele del Friuli, in the Northeast of Italy, and like all PDO products, it must pass the strictest inspection. Parmigiano Reggiano renowned for its complex flavor, is made exclusively in Parma, Reggio Emilia and three other neighboring Italian provinces. Prosciutto di Parma a delicately flavored, all-natural ham, is produced in the gently rolling hills near Parma. With legendary European foods, its easy to make restaurant-quality dishes like these. For more serving ideas and information about the PDO system, visit www.legendsfromeurope.com. Introducing Montasio CheeseMontasio, with a savory, wellbalanced flavor, is new to many Americans, but its origins can be traced back to a 17th-century monastery. To this day, it is made only in northern Italys Friuli Venezia Giulia and East Veneto and has earned membership in Europes hall of fame as a PDO product. Young semi-soft Montasio is terrific on a cheese platter or on sandwiches. Aged Montasio can be grated for pasta, risotto and other dishes. Parmigiano Reggiano-Spinach PuffsYield: about 3 dozen 4 cups baby spinach (6 ounces), cooked, cooled 3/4 cup flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper 3/4 cup milk 5 tablespoons butter 3 large eggs, at room temperature 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) coarsely grated Parmigiano Reggiano Preheat oven to 400F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Wrap spinach in a towel, squeeze until dry; chop fine. In small bowl, mix flour, salt and cayenne. In medium saucepan, bring milk and butter to a boil. Remove from heat and add flour mixture; with wooden spoon, beat until it thickens and pulls away from sides, about 1 minute. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well until incorporated. Stir in spinach and cheese. Drop rounded spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets, spacing 1 inch apart. Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm. (Puffs can be held at room temperature up to 1 day or frozen; reheat in 400F oven, 3 to 5 minutes.)Bruschetta with Skillet-Seared Mushrooms and Grana PadanoYield: 4 portions 4 slices country-style bread 4 ounces Grana Padano, coarsely grated 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 pound crimini mushrooms, thinly sliced 1 small red bell pepper, cut in 1/2-inch pieces 2 cloves garlic, cut in slivers 2 teaspoons flour 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1/3 cup half-and-half Preheat oven to 400F. On baking sheet, toast bread until crisp, about 10 minutes. Scatter one-third of the Grana Padano over toast. In large skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil; add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until they give off liquid, about 5 minutes. Stir in bell pepper and garlic; cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat. Stir in flour, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, 2 minutes; add half-and-half and simmer until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. DivideoverbruschettaandtopwithremainingGranaPadano.

I really could not handle it. As soon as the temperature dropped below 70, I would be complaining, grouching and working on everybodys nerves. I would be such a nuisance that they would have to get together and buy me a plane ticket back to sunny Florida. My relatives should thank me for not moving up north to enjoy the snow with them. See how much I am saving my relatives? Do they appreciate it? No relationship is quite like that relationship that spans several hundred miles. You know the old saying, Absence makes the heart grow fonder. So, if you add distance to that absence you have the epitome of a wonderfully fond heart. Many things separate us from one another. Sometimes that separation is voluntary and sometimes it isnt. The apostle Paul understood that nothing could separate him from God. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:38-39). It does not matter how cold it is outside as long as inside there is a warm relationship with God bordering on fiery expectation.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 e-mail jamessnyder2@att.net.

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) College Park Church of God is at 3140 SW 26th St., Ocala, (right across the street from the CF bookstore).

Now, you can be a part of this worthwhile project by opening your home and your heart. On week ends these service dogs in training need a place where they can be a part of an ordinary living situation. Getting used to people and strange places is one of the keys to educating these dedicated and loving animals. If you have a couple of week ends per month to provide this kind of opportunity to a service dog, we need your help. You can bring the dog into your home at no financial cost to you personally. All that is needed is for you to spend time with the dog and take it where ever you go. If you are going to a grocery store; department store; meeting; dinner; or church, take the dog with you and introduce it to a variety of environments. Over the course of the months that you will be doing this, you will develop a strong attachment to the animal and vice versa. Dont worry about that because when the time comes to say goodbye to your four legged friend; you will know that it is moving on to serve an American hero. This program is open to any qualified resident of Marion County but I know my Cherrywood residents and there are many of you who would be excellent at this type of giving situation. Please call Bev Carver at the SPCA and let her know you are interested in becoming a Patriot Dog foster care giver. Her number is 873-6787. If you would like to make a tax deductable donation to the Patriot Dog Project make your check or money order out to the Cherrywood Veterans Club; mark Dog in the memo portion of the document and mail it to 6253 SW 100 Loop; Ocala Fl. 34476. Make this New Year a better one for yourself; for a hero dog in training and for a hero. Youll know that you are truly making a difference that matters.Cribbage ClubMondays; 12:30 in the card room of the clubhouse; have fun with a great game and some pretty great people.

Once God is rooted out of a society, the power lusters show their true intent. Power, and privilege for themselves, and friends, and (the big and) slavery for the rest of us. Look at Germany, Russia, Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, etc. Read: Shakedown Socialism. Why? Why are we so easily fooled, over, and over? Do you want to be a slave? Todays generations have had it tooooo easy. They have no clue what privation is. Perhaps, they had to wait a week to get their tech toy, (major privation.) They have no appreciation for, or perspective on freedom. No clue what they are throwing out the door. Humans have yearned for freedom forever, and now that it has been hard won, these useful idiots want to trade it off for slavery once again? Anyone think this is a smart idea? How do you educate a useful idiot? Any and all suggestions welcome. Hurry, please. God said: If you mend your wicked ways, I will help No mending, no help. Pretty clear message. Shall we get started mending? Cut the useful idiots at the knees. How? PU Political Uncorrectness. Operation Pushback. They say no God, we say yes God, in a thousand ways. D.I. Larson OcalaFriday, January 10, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, January 10, 2014 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Iwas sitting on the back porch sipping an ice-cold tea with a splash of lemon when I received a text from a relative up north. I was enjoying a pleasant afternoon basking in the winter sun of Florida. I am not sure what God was thinking of when He created the north with all that bad weather and snow and such, but I know what He was thinking of when He created the South especially Florida. He was thinking in particular of me and my insatiable love of the sun. Basking in the Florida sun is the great reward of being smart and moving to Florida. I have some friends who were born in Florida and think they are a little bit better than me. I remind them that they had no choice of being born in Florida but I, on the other hand, moved to Florida on my own volition. I think I have the upper hand on that one. I may be old but I certainly do delight in the modern technology. It used to be that when you got a call from a relative you had to answer the telephone and talk to the person on the other end for as long as they hung on. Today, thanks to modern gadgetry; when a relative wants to contact me, they usually do it by text. I love it. Getting a text is a strange thing, or it can be. If I do not respond right away, I can always claim that there is something wrong with my cell phone and my texting isnt working right today. Then I can get back to that relative whenever it suits me. Or, as the case with some relatives, and you know who I mean, I can ignore it. Cold is as cold feels and I dont like feeling cold If you are a relative of mine and have not heard from me or had any of your text answered the simple answer is, I am not really ignoring you (ha ha ha) my cell phone is not working correctly. This relative that texted me was complaining about how cold it was up north and even had the courtesy to send me a picture of their backyard just chock-full of some white substance known as snow. The text read, I bet you wish you were here to enjoy this. I think that relative would have lost that bet for sure. I love those snow scenes on postcards or in text messages like this one, but as to be personally involved with all of the frigid snow, do not bet on me! Years ago, Cold and I experienced a deep disagreement and we have been separated ever since. As far as I am concerned, the separation is final! I really do not want anything more to do with Cold. We are not even on speaking terms. Cold, after all, is a relative thing especially when the relatives are up north in the winter. Up north, they complain when the temperature falls below 30. Here in Florida I complain when the temperature falls below 70. Whenever the temperature dips below that magical 70, I have to break out one of my sweaters. What an inconvenience for me to have to put on a sweater because it is just a little bit cool on the outside. Then my relative sent me a picture of her standing in the snow looking like the abominable snowman. She had more clothes on than I actually own and have in my closet. I wonder how she walks around wearing all those clothes? How in the world does she ever sit down wearing all those clothes? And what about that thing wrapped around her head? We have hats here in Florida but not quite like the one she was wearing. It looked like she was wearing some igloo. At this point in my life, I could not afford, for a variety of reasons, to move back north. I do not think my relatives up north could put up with me at this point. They offer me a friendly invitation to come Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 This trip is scheduled for Jan. 26 through the 29 and its filling up fast with reservations. With all that Biloxi and the IP have to offer; its no wonder. There are many perks that come with this package including food and gaming tokens so dont miss out on this way to get over the post holiday blues. Call Natalie today to get your reservations. Her number is 854-4561.From your reporterThe holidays are over and like everyone else; your reporter is saying Whew! Company is gone; pine needles are vacuumed for the last time; all of the Christmas cookies have been eaten and the last shred of wrapping paper has been crumpled into the trash. Sitting back, I look at all the activities and parties that we had as a community over the holidays and take a deep breath. Also, I remember what weve accomplished in the past year and look forward to even greater deeds in the coming 12 months. For now, however, at least the next few weeks, Im enjoying the less busy schedule of January. In conversations, many of my friends have shared their New Years resolutions with me. Most want to lose weight; quit smoking or drinking; get more exercise; live healthier life styles and/or save more money. These are not uncommon goals but for many, they are difficult to attain. Im not sure why however. Obviously if you werent spending money on cigarettes or alcohol; you would save money right off the top. Walking is exercise and its free; thus, more money saved. Exercise, along with not eating or drinking will drop pounds off so losing weight shouldnt be difficult at all; so whats the problem? Unfortunately, most resolutions, alas, will go unfulfilled so I have decided that for my resolutions; Im setting goals that I can reach with success. First, Im going to gain 20 pounds this year or at least give it a good shot. Ive heard that fat people are jolly people and I need all the jocularity I can get. A diet of pizza and chocolate cake should do the trick nicely. Next, Im going to drink more beer and wine in the hopes of not caring what is happening in the world around me. This might seem a little selfish but if it ticks off my family and friends, Ill have fewer commitments and absolutely no expectations placed upon me. Exercise will be covered with my increased beer drinking because Ill be doing 12 oz curls with my right arm. To round things off, Im taking up cigar smoking. This coupled with a little chewing tobacco should make for a great new year. As for money, Ill spend it on wine; women; gambling and desserts; the rest Ill just squander. Of course these are tongue in cheek resolutions. My only true New Years resolution is my commitment to you the reader to try and do a better job in 2014. I will endeavor to give you all the information about Cherrywood and our very active community. While attempting to bring some humor into the articles; I will always present you with facts and information that are consistent with the high standards of the Citizen Newspaper. If you have suggestions or comments about the articles in the Cherrywood section of your Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I always enjoy hearing from you, the reader. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 With the end of the holiday season, clearance sales of all kinds have been taking place. Lots of good items that just didnt sell earlier and specials that didnt fit in with buyers plans are being cleared out. Here in Pun Alley the situation is similar. Good stories that didnt fit in any of the themes of last years columns have accumulated. Today you get to read them in our own clearance event.Fall outAs a group of soldiers stood in formation at an Army base, the Drill Sergeant said, All right! All you idiots fall out. As the rest of the squad wandered away, one soldier remained at attention. The Drill Instructor walked over until he was eye to eye with him, and then raised a single eyebrow. The soldier smiled and said, Sure was a lot of em, huh, sir?Engineering Hell.When an engineer died, Saint Peter carefully checked his records and, not seeing the engineers name listed there, he sent him down to Hell. It didnt take long before the engineer became dissatisfied with the comfort level there. He designed and built improvements. Shortly thereafter, Hell had air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators. Needless to say, the engineer was a pretty popular guy. One day God called Satan and asked, So, how are things in Hell? Satan replied, Hey, things are going great. Weve got air conditioning, flush toilets, and escalators. And theres no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next. What! God exclaimed, Youve got an engineer? Thats a mistake; he should never have been sent to Hell. Send him back to me. Not a chance, Satan replied, I like having an engineer on the staff, and Im keeping him! God insisted, Send him back or Ill sue. Satan uproariously laughed and answered, Yeah, right. And where are you going to get a lawyer?PunishmentWhen it comes to buying groceries, actors are not prudent consumers. They prefer a small roll to a long loaf. Why the toothbrush in your coat lapel? Its my class pin; I go to Colgate. It is hard to understand how a cemetery raised its burial cost and blamed it on the cost of living. My wife drives like lightning. She drives fast? No, she hits trees! I once saw a tribal chief eat an entire Websters dictionary. We gave him castor oil for a week but never got a word out of him. The pro at the tennis club offered a special discount on lessons for the next three weeks. His bulletin board sign read First Come, First Serve. Hello, do you sell ladders? Sorry you have the rung number. Visit our nudist colony and get the bare facts. I see you went crazy at that big clearance sale. You got that right, I almost bought their elevator because it was marked down. Joes wife clipped a job listing out of the paper for him. She said it wasnt much to start out, but has a huge pay raise. It read, Salary 23k to start, 401k after 1 yr. While training to work for Coca-Cola, he was given a pop quiz. As the massive wedding cake began to tilt and collapse, many guests at the reception struggled to hold back tiers. The tire repairman demanded a flat fee for his work. Scientists say that exercise kills germs. But, what I want to know is, how do you get the little buggers to exercise. The lingerie thief gave an officer the slip. Doctors gave up bloodletting long ago because it was all in vein. I think Im a wit. My wife tells me Im half right. John was offered a job making venetian blinds, but he turned it down because it sounded like a shady business.A tale of woeThree aspiring psychiatrists from three leading universities were attending their first class on emotional extremes. Just to establish some parameters, said the professor to the student from UF, What is the opposite of joy? Sadness, said the student. And the opposite of depression? he asked the young lady from Auburn. Elation, she said. And you, sir, he said to the student from Florida State. How about the opposite of woe? The FSU student replied, Sir, I believe that would be giddy up.

Music by Mitch & DianeFriday, January 10, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, January 10, 2014 When its wrong, its wrongI, as well as the whole country, have been forced to read too much about gay marriages and abortion. In the past few months, its been plastered everywhere and imposed on our society. When you address the topics, you have to ask yourself are you a believer in God and Creation or just floundering. Lets play the non-believer game. If you dont believe, then instead of Adam and Eve, you would have Adam and Arnold, or possibly, Eve and Evelyn. In that case there would be no Cane and Able or even U.S. Interesting? Then if you believe in abortion, and every woman had an abortion, there would be no U.S, and the nonmedical public has no idea what a fetus goes through during an abortion. Horrible! Now, which came first, the chicken or the egg? Good question, and no real answer. Then I ask, which came first the Creation and the Bible or the Constitution? We all know the answer to that. Being a church music major in college, I know the Constitution didnt come first. When people rattle the constitution sword, thats just what theyre doing, rattling a sword against others who dont believe as radically as they do. There werent any guns back in biblical days. Not in the Bible, but right there in the Constitution. Now I ask you which is best? If I have to answer that question for you, youre brain dead. The Constitution is a lot of words just as is the Magna Carta, North Atlantic Treaty, or any guidelines for any country. Oh yes, if you dont know what the Magna Carta is, just ask. Point here is, are we a society of believers or are we a society of lost people? Each of us have to ask that question. I know my answer. Its said we are a society of laws, consequently lawyers. Wow! Bill Ford OcalaBlood donors thanksYou may pass them in the aisle at the grocery, sit next to them in church or see them stepping off of a school bus right here in our community are a quiet group of people who are saving lives because they make the decision to donate blood. January is set aside nationally as Blood Donor Awareness Month, and LifeSouth would like to thank all of those who donated blood in the past year. Whether it was a blood drive at school, at work, in the parking lot of a shopping center or at one of our donor centers, this special group of people made an impact for people living right here. There are thousands of people who survived to welcome 2014 because these anonymous lifesavers decided to take a few minutes out of a day to make a difference. Cancer patients, trauma victims, newborn babies and many more benefitted. Nationally, donor numbers are small just more than 4 percent of Americans give regularly. Fortunately, many come back again and again to help. They have saved the lives of our neighbors, our friends and possibly their own family members, and they could certainly use some help in 2014. At a time when were still considering our New Years resolutions, think about becoming a blood donor or giving more often because that change could help someone right here in Marion County. An investment of a few minutes could mean a lifetime of difference for someone in the coming year. Ed Keith District Director LifeSouth Community Blood CentersAngel Project thanksThe Ocala 200 Lions Club and Sammys Italian Restaurant wish to thank the community for their support of the recent Christmas Tree, take an Angel Project, to purchase a gift or toy for the children of the Domestic Violence Center. It really made their Christmas wonderful. Arlene Pieczynski Ocala 200 Lions ClubLegalizing Sin?Some of us still believe in sin, some do not. Why do free people permit, endorse, condone, and encourage : immorality, amorality, brutality, barbarism, greed, lying, cheating, power lusting, crude behavior? It has become the preferred form of entertainment. Turn on the TV, and see if you can find an alternative. Much of it legalized by bureaucrats. This is one tool in the kit of useful idiots, trying to destroy our system of life. Trying to root every semblance of God from our way of life. A tried and true tool used by communists over and over. Seems no one catches on, no matter how many times it is tried. When will we wake up? Theres a scene in the movie Back to the Future where Doc Brown, in 1955, laments to a picture of Thomas Edison that he cant create enough electricity to send his time machine back to 1985. But even Christopher Lloyd in the movie probably never envisoned that Toms original light bulb would go the way of the dinosaur. Government, particularly the feds, does all sorts of things to us. It imposes taxes we dont want, it mandates health care that many of us dont want, it moves holidays around at its own whim to get extra days off, not necessarily to honor anyone, it restricts things communities can do with their roads, with their water, etc. Thats why it shouldnt come as a surprise that it is mandating what type of light bulbs we use. Now we have to go to halogen or those twisty things that are labeled so confusingly that you cant tell what youre getting. The old incandescent light bulbs can no longer be imported or manufactured in the U.S. as of Jan. 1. When the store shelves run out of your favorites, guess what? Unless youre a romantic who wants to see by candlelight, you have to go with the newer bulbs, or fluorescent lights. Youll still have varying sizes, and there was one story that said that three-way bulbs will still be available in the new style, but forget the old ones theyre history. Not too long ago, when these twisted bulbs came out, not knowing any better, I replaced the three in my bathroom with three of the new ones of the same wattage. Within moments, I heard what sounded like a sizzling sound and I turned the switch off immediately. How was I to know back then that the new ones were a lot more powerful than the old ones, and just one would have done the trick. The environmentalists who are pushing these (arent they pushing everything?) say that well save money because the newer bulbs will last longer. Of course, the new bulbs are a lot more expensive, so it will take a college algebra major to figure out if you really will save money or not. There was already evidence last week that people were hoarding light bulbs, of all things. Its a case of government ramming something down our throats again, and of people fighting back to keep new things from entering their lives. I just saw a TV commercial for one of those battery-powered, wall-mounted non-electric lights that you push to get things illuminated. I wonder if I can get enough of them to light my house? Meanwhile, Im trying to remember where we put those candles. They might come in handy.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen..

Imagine that youre involved in a major project, one thats getting lots of public scrutiny, is enormously important, and is controversial enough that you expect and your lawyers warn that there will be lawsuits. Wouldnt you proceed cautiously, documenting every step of the process if only to practice that timehonored tradition of CYA? It seems like the common-sense course of action. Unfortunately, state legislators who worked on Floridas once-a-decade redistricting dont share the thought. They admitted that some records being sought in a lawsuit challenging the 2012 redrawing of political boundaries were destroyed. The destruction was done, they said, according to policy. Hogwash. Florida has an extensive public records law and pages upon pages of rules about records retention and disposition. Lots of rules, sometimes confusing. Even so, is it reasonable to think that documents associated with redistricting which essentially determines how politics are played in this state should not be retained as long as, for example, proclamations (two calendar years), parking decal/permit records (two fiscal years) postage/shipping records (three fiscal years), or local government mileage reports (five fiscal years)? Whats happening isnt the way things ought to be done. Our Sunshine laws were created to put a stop to the publics business being conducted in the shade to the benefit of those in power. Well, the thinking goes, if you cant conduct public business in private, the next best thing is to arrange for your side to get most of the seats at the table. It happens every 10 years, and both parties have tried to do it. At the heart of the issue are Florida Constitution changes approved by voters in 2010 regarding how to conduct the redrawing of legislative and congressional district boundaries. The new constitutional language says, in part, No apportionment plan or district shall be drawn with the intent to favor or disfavor a political party or an incumbent; and districts shall not be drawn with the intent or result of denying or abridging the equal opportunity of racial or language minorities to participate in the political process. The legislatures first effort at district mapping in 2012 was rejected by the Florida Supreme Court, which found that the state Senate map was drawn to favor incumbents and rife with improper intent. The court made them rework it. Now, Floridas League of Women Voters (LWV) is in Leon County Circuit Court saying that the existing Senate mapping is still infected with intentional bias. In connection with the suit, they recently won an opinion from the Florida Supreme Court establishing that lawmakers can be made to testify about how they drew the new districts. Also, the LWV requested documents about the process but legislators say those documents were destroyed. The LWV insists that Florida voters should be up in arms about these missing records. We agree. If the LWV prevails in the current lawsuit, lawmakers could have to redraw the districts again before the 2014 elections. It may be messy, but at least those involved would be held accountable and we need more of that. A better option? Political mapping should be in the hands of an independent commission, not legislators getting input from their party cronies.Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Friday, January 10, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, January 10, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Romantic aspects are high at this time for single Lambs looking for love. Warm and fuzzy feelings also are at enhanced levels for Rams and Ewes in paired relationships. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This week favors what Taureans dote on namely, love and money. Look for more meaningful relationships for both singles and pairs, as well as an improved financial outlook. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) All lingering shreds of that recent bout with boredom are dissipated as you eagerly accept a challenging offer. Your positive mood persuades others to join you in this venture. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might need validation for a possible solution to a situation involving someone close to you. Consider asking a trusted friend or relative to help you with this problem. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Investigate carefully before agreeing to assist a friend or colleague with a problem. There might be hidden factors that could emerge later that will create problems for you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your decision to work with an associate rather than go it alone, as you first proposed, brings an unexpected bonus. Be careful not to be judgmental. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A loved ones health problem could, once again, make demands on your time and attention. But this time, make some demands of your own, and insist that others pitch in. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a good time for the traditionally staid Scorpion to plan adjustments in your day-today schedules. Be more flexible and allow for more impromptu, off-thecuff actions. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Avoid creating unnecessary fuss over a situation you dont approve of. If its going to work, it will do so despite your objections. If it fails, it will do so without a push from you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Working with a trusted colleague could open your mind to exploring some considerations you previously dismissed. The weekend brings news from a loved one. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Resolving a recent problem leaves you in a good position to strengthen your influence on how things get done. But continue to encourage ideas and suggestions from others. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A new friend suggests an interesting opportunity. But check it out before you snap at it. It might be a good deal for some people, but it might not work in helping you reach your goals. Saturday, Jan. 25 Flea Mark et at St. JudeSt. Jude Catholic Community will be having another open flea market on Saturday, Jan. 25, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. We will start receiving donations for the sale immediately.

Meetings are open to everyone in the community so you dont have to be a member to attend. Wed like to see a large turnout because we have a great deal of business to discuss. Please give us a call at 352-362-0985 if you would like more information about our meetings or have any other questions for us. Thanks to all in the community who came out to support us at Barnes and Noble this holiday season. We wrapped gifts on four days from mid December through Christmas Eve and were thrilled with the generosity of our friends and neighbors. Without you, we cannot help all the animals and people who depend on us all year. Adoption NewsWe have happy news to give you. All three kittens we highlighted in last months column have been adopted into loving homes. They were the three brothers that were left to fend for themselves on State Road 200 near Pine Run until a number of Good Samaritans stepped in to rescue them. We wish them and their families a happy and healthy 2014. There are still three young cats available for adoption if youve been yearning for a new furry member of the family. They can be adopted out individually, in pairs, or the whole kit and caboodle can go together if you have room. Coco the tuxedo cat will turn two years old in March. He likes to cuddle and eat snacks more than anything else in the world. He wants to have all your attention, so he would prefer a home without dogs or small children. Ebony is a one and a half year old black female. She appeared as a stray kitten looking for food and living with the wildlife until Arlene took her in. She is the most independent of the three, given her early experiences. Her best friend is five year old Smokey, who grooms and plays with her. He came to live with Arlene and the other cats right after Ebony showed up. He was injured on his neck and ear at the time, but is now completely healed. These cats are all quite young and will give you a lifetime of love and happiness. Now that all the kittens have found homes, wouldnt it be wonderful for the remaining clan to finally get their turn? Please call Arlene at 875-9761 to find out more. This can be the start of a beautiful friendship. Thank You Cherrywood Veterans ClubLast month the Cherrywood Veterans Club presented Patriot Service Dogs coordinator Julie Drexel with a $2,500 check so that a new service dog can be socialized and trained as a companion to a disabled military veteran. In just a couple of months, the club collected donations from many individuals throughout their community, VFW Post 4781 and an anonymous donor. The new dog will be named Al, in memory of past Veterans Club officer Al Buechter. Three cheers for the Veterans Club and Cherrywood for helping to make dreams come true.

land at the 42nd Street flyover, by the city, where a new road would intersect. At Mondays hastily called Ocala City Council meeting, Council President John McLeod read a letter from Tony Bruno of the Yankees, in which Bruno pointed out that the project had, according to him, encountered unexpected opposition. He therefore asked that the current proposal be withdrawn but said he would be happy to consider other proposals in the future. The council members present voted unanimously to suspend the agreement, and then authorized McLeod to appear before the County Commission the next day, Tuesday, Jan. 7, to advise them that it was no longer necessary to proceed with the ordinances authorizing a referendum, and also that a proposed ordinance allowing alcohol sales was not needed. They city also halted the purchase of the land near the flyover. Council member Mary Rich and Mayor Kent Guinn did not attend the noon meeting. McLeod made a brief appearance at the regular County Commission meeting Tuesday at the time that a public hearing had been scheduled for the ordinances, 10 a.m. He made a brief statement asking what he had been authorized to ask. County commissioners then voted not to proceed with the ordinances and no hearing was held. Earlier in the Tuesday meeting, a couple of speakers had urged to county to vote anyway so people could see where they stand, but that action was not taken. At Mondays meeting, the city said it had spent about $300,000 on the project, money that could not be recovered. Councilman Brent Malever said the taxpayer money would have gone a long way to other things. After a short discussion on the fact that there would be a study of what could be done in the future, City Manager Matt Brower commented, There are lessons to be learned so we dont stumble again. The objections that surfaced in the county were not aimed at having a baseball team, but spending taxpayer money to fund a new stadium. The city had asked the county to put a half-percent sales tax on the ballot, but commissioners could not come up with an agreeable plan. At a work session held weeks ago at the Livestock Pavilion, an overwhelming number of speakers were in favor of the project, with members of the business community and Chamber and Economic Partnership leading the way. However, at almost all the subsequent County Commission meetings, the feelings tilted the other way, with the majority of speakers talking against the stadium. One part of the project that will move ahead actually was approved in the countys five-year plan before the stadium was even mentioned. The 49th Avenue extension, which will be a north-south route that could take some traffic off State Road 200, is still planned. It would have run in front of the stadium, and will still be planned through that area to open up more commercial development. It will intersect the 42nd Street flyover at the existing short road just a block off SR 200. The county authorized continuation of that project as a separate item on Tuesdays agenda.

It takes about two weeks after vaccination for the body to develop antibodies that provide protection against influenza virus infection. In the meantime, you are still at risk for getting the flu. That is why it is better to get vaccinated early in the fall, before the flu season gets under way. FLUCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 It is especially important for pregnant women to be vaccinated due to the increased risk of complications associated with contracting the flu while pregnant. The Department has received several reports of pregnant women with influenza-like illness from around the state. The flu vaccination is safe and will protect against the flu for mothers, unborn babies, and newborns during the first months after birth.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has notified city officials that it has found no deficiencies during its annual inspection of the Ocala International Airport. City officials were notified of the positive inspection results through a letter from Jack McSwain, airport certification and safety inspector, FAA Southern Region, Airports Division. This inspection, which is conducted annually, is designed to ensure that the airport is meeting stringent FAA standards. It covers all aspects of airport operations, including self-inspection programs, pavement management for runways and taxiways, airfield markings and lighting, No deficiences found in airport inspection training and inspection records, fuel inspection records, wildlife mitigation, airport certification manuals and emergency preparedness. Though the inspection is only conducted annually, a small but efficient Airport Operations staff of three is responsible for meeting those FAA standards year round, and has at least one person on duty seven days per week. As part of the inspection, Ocala Fire Rescue personnel had to demonstrate that they meet FAA standards related to airport familiarization, airport communications, aircraft familiarization, aircraft emergency evacuation and firefighting operations. We commend you for the procedures you are using in the day-to-day operation of the airport. The appearance of the airport indicates they are effective, McSwain wrote in the letter. The inspection was conducted on Dec. 13, 2013. Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com 000H2D1 WE KNOW TIRES!

BRIEFS Coalition meets Monday afternoonThe State Road 200 Coalition will meet Monday at 1 p.m. at the Collins Center, TimberRidge Building 5000. The original plan had been to discuss the baseball stadium issue. Despite the events of earlier this week, Pat Gabriel, president of the organization, said that could still be the topic. The meeting is open to the public.

There is a possibility that, if a financing proposal is evident by April 2, the agreement could be reinstated, but indications are that such a plan is unlikely. For more than two years, the city and the Yankees had discussed moving the Florida State League Tampa team from Hillsborough County to Ocala. With no facility available, that move would have required the purchase of land and the building of a Minor League stadium. The site chosen was adjacent to Interstate 75, just off State Road 200 in the Heath Brook area. The city went to the county just a few months ago, although the project was announced in the media in December 2012. City officials said that for tax purposes, the county would own the stadium, which would then be leased back to the Yankees. The project also involved the construction of some new roads, and the purchase of some land at the 42nd Street flyover, by the city,24~ Friday, January 10, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Strike 3, Youre Out! Baseball stadium plans dropped Opposition causes Yankees to ask city for end to agreement PLEASESEEYANKEES, PAGE3 THE FATAL GIFT OF BEAUTY The Trials of Amanda Knox By Nina Burleigh The ongoing fascination with realty TV and all things Kim Kardashian took a back seat for a while beside what occurred on Nov. 1, 2007 in Perugia, Italy when British student Meredith Kercher was brutally murdered and winsome, cartwheeling 20-year-old American Amanda Knox was arrested and charged with murder. The Seattle girl had been studying Italian in Perugia when her unconventional behavior coalesced with entrenched Italian fears of ritual conspiracies, female sexuality, and student depravity. Acclaimed author Nina Burleigh flocked to Perugia along with throngs of journalists. She would live there, attend the trial, correspond with the incarcerated defendant, and delve deeply into the history, secrets, and customs of the area. Hers is a thoughtful examination of how the lives of two outgoing housemates turned out so horribly on that night before Halloween.Working against Knox at the outset was her quirky personality and bohemian lifestyle that perfectly fit the prosecutors pre-conceived notions When she did cartwheels and yoga stretches in the police station, Italians could only compare her moves to those on TV in the Berlusconi erajiggly showgirls who giggled in G strings. And there were problems early on between Kercher and Knox who shared a bathroom. Italian toilets took low-flow to a new extreme by requiring a cleaning after each use. Amandas hygiene, however, left much to be desired as Kercher complained to her British friends. Moreover, Meredith Kercher was much more sophisticated than Knox and from a prominent family. When she partied it was almost exclusively with her ERASMUS Institute students from home, leaving Amanda to fend for herself. So naturally the jealousy factor as a murder motive soon surfaced. Although Burleigh recognizes Amandas many flaws that made her her own worst enemyshe was narcissistic, loud, childlike even callous she displays sympathy for the hapless girl who got no legal advice, no help from her American government and thus didnt act in her dire circumstances even when her roommates were all lawyering up. Add to her plight the Italian system of making investigator and prosecutor a single position, confusing blood results, ill-advised statements from the defendant about violent visions she experienced, and her fate was clearly sealed. Burleigh weighed in early on Amandas innocence. Her book was published before the guilty verdict. Today the saga continues with Knoxs 2011 acquittal now overturned in the Italian courts. A worthwhile read.

One of the few booths was the Appleton Museum, above, where Claudia and Art Farina greeted visitors. At right, the Christmas decorations put on one of their final shows of the season.PHOTOS BY JIM CLARK State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health, Dr. John Armstrong, received his annual flu shot last Friday at the Florida Department of Health in Marion County and demonstrated that it is not too late for Floridians to be vaccinated against the flu. The Department recommends that all Floridians 6 months of age and older receive a flu shot each year. With peak flu season approaching, it is not too late to get your flu shot, said Dr. Armstrong. Anyone can get the flu, and vaccination is the single best way to protect against flu for Floridas kids, adults, and families. Flu vaccines are offered in many locations, including doctors offices, clinics, health departments, retail stores, pharmacies, and health centers, and through many employers and schools. Check with your physician, your local county health department or www.floridahealth.gov to search for a location to receive a flu vaccine. Key facts: The flu vaccine is the best protection against the flu this season. If you get the flu vaccine, you are 60 percent less likely to need treatment for the flu by a healthcare professional. Getting the vaccine has been shown to offer substantial benefits, including less illness, antibiotic use, time lost from work, hospitalizations, and deaths.

PLEASESEEFLU, PAGE3 The delightful musical comedy Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up? is live on stage from Feb. 6 to March 2 at Ocala Civic Theatre. From the first day of Catholic school to the senior prom, late bloomer Eddie Ryan (Jonathan Williams) spends as much time catching up as growing up in this affectionate valentine to the good times and growing pains of a baby-boomer childhood. The story focuses on his frustrated romance with the devout Becky Bakowski (Melody Murphy) as they struggle with their place in life and how to fit in. Six other classmates join them for this nostalgic coming-of-age journey through the 1950s: Mike Depki, the jock (Ryan Brooks); Mary Kenny, the know-it-all (Melanie Tarter); Virginia Lear, the tomboy (Joan Elizabeth McDonald); Felix Lindor, the nerd (Shannon DeVaughn); Nancy Ralansky, the pretty ditz (Faith Morales); and Louie Schlang, the class clown (Sam Dugger). Providing guidance are Father OReilly, the stern-but-kindly priest (Bill Roughton), and the good sisters who share their wisdom with tough love: sweet Sister Helen (Ginny Riley), scrappy Sister Lee (Suellen DeVito), and fun-loving Sister Monica Marie (Stefanie Knapp). Warm-hearted and good-humored, the show is a delightful musical romp through confession and catechism, patron saints and poodle skirts, guardian angels and gym class, rosaries and rock n roll, best friends and the birds and the bees. Its a divine comedy!

Firefighters responded to a 911 call at 4:47. The first engine company, rescue vehicle and battalion chief to arrive on scene were dispatched from a fire station just down the road, located several hundred feet east on Southwest 20th Street. According to Battalion Chief Mark McEarchern, firefighters used several sets of hydraulic extrication equipment and hand tools to safely remove the two heavily entrapped occupants. Firefighters remained on scene for more than five hours. It took almost two hours to extricate one occupant, and to 2 hours 39 minutes to remove the second occupant. A trauma surgeon was brought to the scene for consultation from Ocala Regional Medical Center. Both patients are in critical condition at the time it was written. In total, 17 firefighters responded to the scene including a fire department chaplain. Heavy equipment trucks from Ocala Utility Services were called to the scene to stabilize the severed pole and de-energize the wires while firefighters worked below the power lines.
