Dispatchers at Marion County Public Safety Communications received an emergency call from a homeowner at 8121 SW 117th Loop, Ocala, at 2:56 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 13. The caller advised her home was on fire and she was having difficulty getting her husband outside. When firefighters arrived, they immediately helped the callers husband to safety. All of the homes three occupants escaped uninjured. The 3,100-square-foot residence was approximately 25 percent involved when Engine 31 arrived first on scene. Twenty firefighters and 10 units were dedicated to the fire, which originated in the garage, and had it under control at 3:18 a.m., less than 25 minutes after dispatchers received the initial emergency call. Crews made entry into the home with an offensive attack and contained the fire to a quarter of the residence. The homeowner called 911 immediately after being awakened by a noise in the garage and realizing a fire had ignited. MCFR officials said her quick response and the close proximity of MCFR Stations 31 and 21 helped prevent significant injury and the homes total loss. The State Fire Marshals Office is investigating the cause.

Free trees Saturday in Ocala On Friday, Jan. 10, the Marion County Sheriff's Office charged Dylan Martin with six counts of arson to vehicles, which included three patrol cars. The first occurred at 10807 SW 57th Terrance Road on Sept. 21, to a 2001 Honda that was parked in a driveway. Three other vehicle fires occurred in the same community under the same circumstances on Sept. 29, Oct. 7 and Oct. 13, two cars being law enforcement vehicles. On Oct. 20, an officer was on stakeout in the same community where he saw a white male standing by a patrol vehicle, pouring something under the hood below the windshield wipers on the driver's side. He gave chase but lost the man. The liquid turned out to be a flammable accelerant. Several calls were received with information that indicated Dylan Martin, 21, of 5805 SW 108th St., Ocala was responsible for these arson cases. They gave details that Martin had shared with them about how he set the fires and ran from law enforcement officers. On Nov. 5, Dylan Martin was interviewed by detectives and denied his involvement in these cases stating that he was with his girlfriend across town. Martin was charged with six counts of arson under a $60,000 bond. Suspect arrested in torching of law enforcement cars 1918 SW 17th St. Ocala 352-401-0808btnfrnfnbtrnnbfrrbfbbfnn nfn!

Public outcry gave the tree a reprieve but subsequently, nature and age brought the famous tree to the ground. To keep Anne Franks legacy growing, the city fathers cultivated saplings from the chestnut and sent them to the United States for planting in designated spots. In keeping with the spirit of Tu Bishvat, may tolerance and understanding grow and flourish. May people of all races, creeds and nationalities learn to live and work in harmony. May the words of a young girls diary inspire us to work for the betterment of humanity. And may her legacy continue to grow like the chestnut saplings planted in her memory. JUDICONTINUED FROM PAGE 23 Ben Franklin was born in 1706 on todays date. He was a leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, postmaster, scientist, musician, inventor, satirist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat. Pun Alley takes a look at some comic aspects of his activities. Franklin published his famous periodical Poor Richards Almanac from 1732 to 1758. He knew that brevity was the soul of wit, and made his humorous strokes quickly, deftly, and subtly so subtly, in fact, that those unaccustomed to humor which makes demands on the intellect instead of the emotions sometimes miss it altogether. Much of his humor and proverbs still in use came from the Almanac: An apple a day keeps the doctor away. A countryman between two lawyers is like a fish between two cats. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes. A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle. God works wonders now and then; behold a lawyer, an honest man. An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. Anger is never without a reason, but seldom with a good one. It is as truly folly for the poor to ape the rich, as for the frog to swell, in order to equal the ox. It is hard for an empty bag to stand upright. Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days. He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else. God heals, and the doctor takes the fee. A penny saved, is a penny earned. If you do what you should not, you must hear what you would not. A learned blockhead is a greater blockhead than an ignorant one. Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. He who falls in love with himself will have no rivals. If a man could have half of his wishes, he would double his troubles. Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, half shut afterwards. She laughs at everything you say. Why? Because she has fine teeth. Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment. The world is full of fools and faint hearts; and yet every one has courage enough to bear the misfortunes, and wisdom enough to manage the affairs, of his neighbor. God helps them that help themselves. Lifes tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late. As an author, Franklin was known for putting subtle jokes in many of his papers that only the most astute would spot. He was so famous for this that when the states representatives were deciding who should write the Declaration of Independence, they chose Jefferson over the significantly more qualified and respected Franklin, as some feared Franklin would embed subtle humor and satire in it that wouldnt be recognized until it was too late to change. Knowing this document would likely be examined closely, they chose to avoid the issue by having the much less gifted writer, Jefferson, write it instead, with Franklin and three others to help Jefferson draft it. After the signing of the Declaration of Independence, John Hancock told Franklin that the country had an important task for him. Franklin jokingly replied that he was too old to be a soldier. What Hancock really wanted was a minister in France to raise money and generate diplomatic support for the revolutionary war. Franklin agreed, saying, Thats alright, a soldier has to die for his country, but a diplomat only has to lie for his country. Many believe that Franklin invented the idea of daylight saving time. Actually, his proposal was written as satire. In a comedic letter published in a Paris newspaper, he mentioned something like daylight saving time. Although, instead of changing clocks, he suggested ringing church bells and firing cannons, among other things, as the sun rises to maximize the amount of time people would be awake during times when the sun is providing free light. The letter was meant to be a satire, rather than actually suggesting these changes be made. Franklin was a man after my own heart. I think he would have enjoyed Pun Alley and certainly would have improved its jokes and stories.

OTOWCONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 On Jan. 16, Jews all over the world will celebrate a holiday called Tu Bishvat dedicated to nature and the preservation of the environment. Long before green technology or before global warming, Jews set aside the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat to rejoice in the coming of spring to the Land of Israel. Since the almond tree blossoms on this date, it was a fitting time to honor trees and nature. In the Diaspora, it is often winter, so trees are planted by proxy in Israel through the auspices of the Jewish National Fund. With the advent of the State of Israel and the rise of modern Zionism, interest in the Holy Land has fostered and Jews worldwide send contributions for the planting of trees and the beautification of the infrastructure. It is also customary to eat fruits from Israel such as carob, figs, dates, oranges and pomegranates. In Jewish tradition, trees are often planted in memory or in honor of a person. Whole forests such as the JFK memorial one in Israel, honoring the slain president, are used as legacies that live on. The whole concept of a tree whose legacy grows and continues to thrive is a theme that is prevalent in Judaism as the Torah, a living document, is often referred to as a Tree of Life. Recently, the Indianapolis Childrens Museum has come into possession of some 11 saplings grown from the original chestnut tree that grew outside of Anne Franks window near her attic hideout in Amsterdam. The young Jewish girl hid with her family from the Nazis for 25 months until they were betrayed and arrested in 1944. During the time they were in hiding, the Frank family had to be quiet during the day in order to escape detection. Fourteen year old Anne kept a diary which was discovered by her father who survived after the war and after its publication, the world learned of the tragic circumstances of the Jews in Amsterdam. To keep Anne Franks legacy alive, 11 locations around the United States were chosen to receive these saplings for planting based the locations dedication to tolerance, peace, social justice and equality. One of the locations includes a park honoring 9/11 victims and an Arkansas school that was the seat of the desegregation battle according to the Anne Frank Center USA. At the Indianapolis Childrens Museum, the sapling will be planted in a peace park with a sculpture of Anne Franks diary near it. The famous chestnut tree is referenced several times in her diary. For a family in captivity, this was their connection to nature and the living, natural world. Nearly every morning I go to the attic, a February 23, 1944 entry reads, From my favorite spot on the floor I look up at the blue sky and the bare chestnut tree, on whose branches little raindrops shine, appearing like silver, and at the seagulls and other birds as they glide on the wind. In spite of her precarious situation, her writings reflect hope and the belief in the humanity of people. It is these positive words that kept her focused on survival during a time of prejudice and intolerance. In 2007, the famous chestnut was deemed a safety Anne Franks growing legacy Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE25 Saturday, Feb. 15 Valentine Day Dance at St. JudeSt. Jude Marion Oaks Knights of Columbus Council 15644 are having their first Valentines Day Dance on Saturday, Feb. 15, from 6 to 11 p.m. at the St. Jude Catholic Community Parish Hall, 443 Marion Oaks Drive in Marion Oaks.

On Christmas Eve, I went to the Ritz House for Homeless Veterans to deliver nearly a score of hand made Afghans. A woman by the name of Andrea had spent her entire summer making these beautiful works of art. For those of you who know anything about knitting and crocheting, you are well aware of how many hours went into this labor of love. If you all remember, Dec.24 was a very cold day with the promise of an even colder night. These hand made blankets were eagerly snatched up by the grateful residents who were not only thankful for the warmth they would give but for the beauty and care that went into each one. Recently Al Morrison from the Ritz House notified the Veterans Club that a female resident was about to be hired at a job. Her problem was that she had nothing to wear to work. Your Veterans Club donated $50 for her to go to the thrift store and buy some suitable attire but that was not enough according to our residents. Within a week, we had an abundance of clothing for her to wear and what made this even more remarkable was that she is a size 6. Last week, our Veterans Club President with the help of Bill Brotherhood delivered the check; clothing and a truck load of donated food for all of the residents. What this all means is that the lady in question now has the chance at a bright future. For the residents struggling to get back on their feet; they have food and warmth and even more important; they know that there are people behind them to encourage their success. Another program of Cherrywood is the Support our Soldiers Project. With the help of the Veterans Club; Norellen and Ed Pickell mail special supplies to our military in the field. These touches of home include beef jerky; orange slice candies; trail mix; assorted chips and nuts; liquid body wash and other personal hygiene items. Basically, any treat that they cant get in the PXs of Afghanistan is more than welcome by these service members. We have a box for donations in our clubhouse and each month our wonderful residents donate a wide array of gifts and cookies for our active military personnel. When we became involved with the Patriot Dog Project, the support was so overwhelming that we raised enough to purchase a dog within two months of announcing our goal. So impressed was the owner of Cherrywood Property Management; Chris Zacco, that he has pledged finds towards our next dog. We now have nearly $1,000 toward getting that second dog. These are but a few of the things we are doing and that spirit of love and giving carries over into all of our social activities. Bocce Ball to Cribbage; Yoga to 100 days of summer; movie night and mixed pool league; Accordion Club; Bingo and a dozen more functions are all enjoyable and well supported because of the attitude of our residents.. As with any group; organization or gathering of individuals, we have a few problems but they are so small; so insignificant; as to not be counted. What we do have is so impressive and so important that we must continue to build upon those assets. Our legacy must always be a sharing of mutual respect and affection; sacrifice and service. We are a community of generous loving people that is willing to reach out to one another and to those in need. It is that fact that makes me so proud to be a resident of Cherrywood and makes Cherrywood such a great place to live.

I dont drink, and Ive only tried weed twice in my entire life. The only reaction I had was to get thirsty. And I certainly dont need pot to get the munchies. Right now, you are probably asking yourself, Why bother even telling you this? Heres why: A lot of commentators who are musing about the spectacle of Colorados decriminalization of recreational marijuana find it necessary to begin their reflection by fondly reminiscing about their own mellow times getting stoned. Apparently they think it bestows credibility on them, as they ponder the long lines in Denver to buy newly legalized pot. Its now allowed in the state, but its still against federal law, and thats why a debate has lit up anew. Shouldnt it be treated like alcohol? The answer is, of course it should be. The restrictions against a drug that is clearly less harmful are clearly absurd, particularly when studies show that brutal penalties against violators are enforced much more harshly in Americas poor and minority communities. Alcohol is an addictive drug that is demonstrably more destructive to individual health and to society as a whole, its regulated and limited, but its sold to anyone who meets the age requirement. We should be able to lead our private lives as we want, as long as theres no danger to society. Of course there is plenty of danger, but we should be evenhanded. But here comes the preachy part: Why do we use the stuff? Why have we always indulged in substances that make us crazy, loud, destructive, you name it? Are we as a species so frightened of reality that we need to escape it by ingesting something mind-altering rather than just dealing with it? Obviously the answer is that we do need chemical reinforcement, since we have drunk, inhaled, chewed or injected it since the dawn of time. Its not just recreational use of drugs. If were feeling just the slightest bit sad, no matter what the good reason, theres always some physician willing to prescribe Zoloft or Prozac, or some other SSRI, which messes with the brains chemicals in ways no one fully understands. Is your kid a bit scattered? Well, its not hard to find a doctor to prescribe Adderall, which is speed, by the way. Its important to mention that these pharmaceuticals provide tremendous benefit to those who have a genuine medical or psychological problem, but the stuff is dangerous to those who dont. Instead of dealing with their issues, they want to cop out by becoming numbed. Thats the appeal of alcohol, marijuana and the other playtime substances they numb us. But why do we want that? Yes, Im sure this is being dismissed by many of you as a priggish attack on fun, but Id love to think I enjoy a good time as much as the next person. I just dont want to regret it afterward. Id like to remember it the next day when I wake up. But we really do need to wake up. Sure, legalize this stuff, but realize what it does to us.Distributed by King Features Synd. Most people dont like getting credit and collection calls, because it means they havent paid their bills and their names have been turned over to an agency that does such things. They dont like being reminded, but always say the check is in the mail. But for some of us, getting collection calls is annoying for another reason. The collection agency is calling someone you dont know. Here at the West Marion Messenger/South Marion Citizen, we recently got a new phone number just for news. I can tell you the names of the last four people who had this phone number before me, and I can tell you that all of them probably gave up the phone number to stop the calls for collection. Now Im getting them all. Ive found its not easy to get your phone number off the collection list. You can tell the person at the other end that its a wrong number, but a different agent with a different name calls that same number, and when told that the number was supposed to be removed from their data base, they say that if a new account came in showing that number, well, tough luck. Collection agencies have some rules they have to follow, especially concerning hours they can call, what they can say, etc. However, there doesnt appear to be any law that makes collection agencies verify phone numbers before they call them. Whatever number they are given, thats the number they call. I have tried all sorts of tactics. Ive been nice and told them the story politely. That elicits a promise to remove my number, but then a few days later the phone will ring and it will be the same agency, although a different person. Ive been nasty and told them they were guilty of interstate harassment, and that I would take their number to the U.S. Attorneys office. They almost laugh at me, then go back to their script. Ive pressed the button after the recording says, If you are not -, please press 2. That doesnt do any good, though, because theyll just call back later. The only anxious reaction I got was when I said, Are you aware you called a newspaper office? I then ask if I can have their name so when I write the story I can quote them. Funny, those people never call back. Ive been thinking of pretending I speak some foreign language that nobody will understand. I might try that one next time, speaking gibberish all the way, just to see what they say. The problem is a lot of these calls are automated, so Im not talking to a real person. Basically, I just want the calls to stop, and if it takes federal regulations tightening up on these callers, so be it. Id love to name the people whose collection calls Im getting, but then Id probably be sued for invasion of privacy or something. But then, at least, the collection agencies would know where to find these people. Maybe that way I can perform a service.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

At the conclusion of the Marion County Commission meetings, there is a time slot for public comment, the second opportunity for the audience to address the commissioners, this time after most action has been taken. At the most recent meeting on Jan. 7, a number of people got up to speak, and for a change the subject wasnt baseball. It was about trauma. More specifically, Ocala Regionals Level II Trauma Center. ORMC is facing litigation initiated by Shands in Gainesville, seeking to have the Trauma Center here closed. When you get through all the legal verbage, its all about one thing money. Shands fears it will lose money as a result of the 1year-old Trauma Center which serves Marion and two other counties to the south and west. The speakers had a basic theme. It should remain open because a trauma center can save lives of Marion County residents. Commissioners appear to agree. Kathy Bryant gave the most stark example, referring to a recent single-vehicle accident in the wee hours on Southwest 20th Street, near the Interstate overpass and close to the northwest corner of the college. Two young men were pinned in the vehicle for more than two hours. Bryant pointed out that a trauma surgeon from Ocala Regional came to the scene and worked with rescue personnel so one of the young men could be safely pulled out with, as Bryant put it, losing his leg. Bryant and others wondered openly whether such timely service would have been provided had we still be dependent on Shands in Gainesville for our trauma service. The general feeling was, no chance. The sentiments expressed generally had one tone: Shands cares more about money than the lives of the residents of Marion and the other counties. Its obvious to all of us who live here that having the best medical facilities possible is beneficial to all of us. No we just have to make sure that the bottom-line-only people up at Shands feel the same way. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Trauma Center should stay open Sorry, theres nobody here by that name Why do Americans need mind-numbing stuff? READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor child, dont create a never ending financial burden on the rest of us. Take responsibility for your life, complete your education. Get away from the idea that it is governments responsibility to take care of you. This is a pet idea of liberals, some expressed in this paper, even though there is nothing in our Constitution that gives you the right to other peoples money, so called forced charity by the Fed. Liberals should start giving more to real charities! Facts again show that Conservatives far outgive Liberals, although the news media would have you believe otherwise. Drug PolicyAlmost 80 years of a national drug policy has utterly failed to achieve its objective of public health protection and has instead caused incalculable human harm, misery and unbounded expense. Legalization, taxation and regulation of cannabis products is a public policy experiment whose effects are yet to be known but whose time has come to find out. Washington and Colorado residents have cast a decisive vote against the failed drugwar policies and are making thoughtful efforts to try something different. Other states will eventually follow when the dire predictions of drugwar defenders fail to materialize and common sense prevails. Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunPoverty in AmericaObama has now declared a new war on poverty with big federal government having the answers. Of course, as with all liberals, he believes the redistribution of wealth, taking money from those who earn it to give to those who dont, will answer the problem. This doesnt address the problems, it just leads to more division, class warfare, socialism or worse. The following will draw fire from liberals but its time we stop this politically correct nonsense and tell the truth be correct! We need to have far fewer single moms. Facts show this is a sure way to have more children born into fatherless, low income homes, assuring generational poverty.

Friday, January 17, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, January 17, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Aspecial award was presented at the Marion Landing New Years Eve Party this year. Board 1st Vice President John Alderson presented Sandy Olmsted with the Marion Landing Volunteer Recognition Award. When John was called up to the podium during the party, no one really knew why, but then he began his presentation and the reason became clear. Hello, everyone. Its great to see you all here, and to share with you saying goodbye to this year, and the bringing in of a new year. With the temporary closing of our Lifestyle Center in the near future, it was decided to use tonights social gathering to present a special Volunteer Recognition Award. Its my pleasure to present this award to a woman Im proud to call a friend, and whose youthful spirit and good heart Ive always admired and respected. Over the years shes taken on many challenges for the good of Marion Landing, and weve all benefited from her involvement, assistance, and her clear understanding and appreciation of the word Community. In her 11 years as a resident, shes been active in the Sunshine Committee, worked our Senior Games, and shes an avid water volleyball player. Shes been MC our Tuesday Morning Socials and organized numerous events and dances. She is also an active member of our Marion Landing Road Riders Motorcycle Group. For the past two years shes been the head of the Election Committee, and her most recent contribution is organizing the New Years Eve party we are enjoying now. Its my honor to present the Volunteer Recognition Award to Sandy Olmsted. Sandys engraved plaque will join the more than 164 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents who are nominated for the award by their peers, and we are seeking nominations of residents not previously recognized. If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a Board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director for consideration. Aluminum can recyclingMarion Landing residents have a long history of being environmentally conscious, and this is especially evident by one volunteer who has been coordinating our Aluminum Can Recycling committee for 12 years. Harold Heye keeps an eye on our recycling room (located outside the Bowling Center near the pool area), crushes cans if necessary, and arranges to turn them into the local recycling facility for cash. To date, for as long as Harold has been keeping records, this activity has brought in more than $8,000 in revenue to the community.

Tue., Jan 28, 11:00am 000H5G1 THE RETURNED By Jason Mott Although the beginning is promising, The Returned has more undead material than it knows what to do with. It begins in the small Southern town of Arcadia where the elderly Hargraves find their 8-year-old son, dead for more than half a century, on their doorstep. Emotions are mixed for seventyish Harold and Lucille. Whereas Lucilles maternal instincts kick in immediately, Harold is less welcoming. Everything then follows from this initial encounter. Such a miracle (or curse or end of times) is occurring all over the contemporary world as thousands of Returneds swell communities, taxing their limited resources and giving rise to anti-Returneds groups like The True Living, headed by a semi-deranged crank named Fred Green. Of course, even for people returning from the dead, there is paperwork. The International Bureau of the Returned was receiving funding faster than it could spend it. The irony was that no one within the Bureau knew more than anyone else. All they were really doing were counting people and giving them directions home. No comets herald the eerie event of the Returned; no prophets predict it or scientists explain it. It just happens. As sleepy Arcadia becomes increasingly violent and crowded and the Returned are incarcerated, the direction of the story flounders. Certainly, Mott does give readers much to ponder. For some the event is a blessing, a second chance at fatherhood or a renewal of lovebut for others the Returneds are not really their dead loved ones. Some even refer to them as its. The author leaves us wondering how we might be affected in our own lives if the dead returned. In the long run, though, the considerable hype and fanfare about this book does not live up to Motts creation. Even so, plans are afoot for it to become a television series in March. Too much undead material in this book Bookmark Pat Wellington The Ocala Symphony Orchestra welcomes talented musicians from across the nation for its 23rd annual Young Artist Competition.

Friday, January 17, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, January 17, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although youre getting kudos and other positive reactions to your suggestions, dont let the cheers drown out some valid criticisms. Better to deal with them now than later. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Following your keen Bovine intuition pays off, as you not only reassess the suggestions some people are putting in front of you, but also their agendas for doing so. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You continue on a high-enthusiasm cycle as that new project youve assumed takes shape. Youre also buoyed by the anticipation of receiving some good news about a personal matter. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your eagerness to immerse yourself in your new assignment is understandable. But be careful that you dont forget to take care of that pressing personal situation as well. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good time to learn a new skill that could give a clever Cat an edge in the upcoming competition for workplace opportunities. Enjoy the arts with someone special. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You could risk creating an impasse if you insist on expecting more from others than theyre prepared to give. Showing flexibility in what youll accept could prevent a stalemate. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although you can weigh all factors of a dispute to find an agreeable solution for others, you might need the skilled input of someone you trust to help you deal with an situation of your own. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) The good news is that your brief period of self-doubt turns into a positive I can do anything attitude. The better news is that youll soon be able to prove it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a good time to start making travel plans while you still can select from a wide menu of choices and deals, and not be forced to settle for leftovers. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Like your zodiacal sign, the sure-footed Goat, you wont allow obstacles in your path to keep you from reaching your goal. Dont be surprised by who asks to go along with you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Let your head dominate your heart as you consider the risks that might be involved in agreeing to be a friends co-signer or otherwise act as his or her backup in a financial matter. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Prioritize: Resolve to close the door and let your voicemail take your phone calls while you finish up a task before the end-of-week deadline. Memory is a beautiful thing, that is, when it is working. I must confess there are many times in which my memory is on some kind of a vacation. What I want to know is simply this, how do you know you have forgotten something if you have forgotten it? I do many things I cannot remember exactly why I do them. Behind everything I do is a reason for why I do it or those things that I do not do. I must confess I am quite a reasonable person along this line. Without memory, we can take many things for granted. We go through motions we do not know why we are going through them, we just go through them. Everybody says that when you get older your memory rather takes a backseat. That may be the case with me, I am not quite sure. I cannot remember. I must confess it is a great asset at times to have a memory failure. For instance, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage accosts me and says, Did you remember...? She may have sent me to the grocery store to fetch something or she may have sent me, God forbid, to the mall to pick up something she ordered online. When she asked this question, I always respond by saying, I forgot, you know my memory is not what it used to be. It is an easy way to slither out of something I have forgotten to do. The older I get the more plausible this excuse is, I just cannot remember why. However, on those occasions when she is a little more exasperated than others at me she will say, Your memory never was what it used to be! What that means exactly I do not know. She probably told me sometime in the past, but right now, I simply cannot recall. I am perfectly happy just forgetting that for the time. Why is it I can remember things I do not want to remember and I cannot remember the things that I need to remember? For instance, I can remember the year my wife was born, but I can never recall the month or the day. As a good husband, I should reverse that, not remember the year and positively remember the month and day. Why is it when my wife is giving me a piece of her mind, all I can remember at the time is a funny incident that happened to me earlier that morning? Smiling at a time like that is not advantageous to a happy life of the husband. When she asks, What is so funny? I cannot tell her I was not listening to her but thinking about something else. My memory was jogged earlier this week when a certain incident happened at the Post Office. Anybody who knows me knows that I am not in any way shape or form a hugger. I am a firm believer in what the Bible says, the right hands of fellowship (Galatians 2:9). I am vigorous in this handshaking ceremony. That is about as far as it goes. I had quite forgotten my position along this line, or rather; I should say why I came to this position. Standing in a very long line at the post office at which time I was in somewhat of a hurry to get through a lady walked in. She looked at me and says, Oh, its so nice to see you. I havent seen you for a long time. Then she caught me off guard and gave me a hug. I did not know who this woman was; I could not remember ever seeing her before. With the way my memory is these days, I pretended as if she was a longlost friend of mine. She chatted about stuff that really did not make any sense to me at the time. I smiled and nodded my head and chatted away to her about things I am sure did not mean anything to her. I was not really paying attention and as the line moved forward, something dawned on me. You know how it is when all of a sudden something hits you. Your vacationing memory comes home and unpacks. Well, that happened to me standing there in line. She hugged me, then cut in front on line Out to Pastor Rev.

Pray for America, God is the answer. We are turning away from Gods word, caving in to the small percent of us who are willing to destroy the very things that America has stood for through the generations. Well guess what? We are through caving in to political correctness by accepting things that are biblically wrong, whether you like it or not. America was founded and prospered under Christian principles. We will stay that way so help us God. God Bless America! Wayne Rackley Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 By the time I had figured out what had happened, it was too late to do anything about it. When she hugged me, she stepped in front of me and therefore was ahead of me in line. I had one of those aha moments but there was nothing I could do about it at the time. I had to swallow my pride, display a contagious smile across my face and take it like a man. A man who has been outwitted by some lady he had no idea who she was. I now remember why I do not do any hugging. I know all hugs are not equal but with the memory I have I do not remember the difference and I am not taking any more chances. Driving home from the Post Office, I remembered the wise words of King Solomon. The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9). If I could just remember that, I certainly would be OK.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Southwest Christian Church is a traditional worshiping church. Our worship service includes singing of the beloved old time gospel hymns together with some of todays contemporary choruses. We preach and teach strictly from Gods Word. We believe the entire Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God given to us by God through His chosen writers to enable us to know Him and to understand how to live our lives in the way He requires in order that we might be pleasing and acceptable to Him.

Religion PLEASESEERELIGION, PAGE13 Love the dog; help a vetIf you are a dog lover and you want to do something for a disabled veteran, we have just the program for you. Patriot Dogs needs foster homes for their dogs in training. What they are asking is for people who will take the dog a couple of weekends each month to be a part of a household. There is no expense involved in this program as veterinarian bills; shots; food and such are all paid for by Patriot Dogs. What is involved is you. You will be expected to take the dog every place you would normally go be it to some ones home for dinner or to the mall for a shopping spree. Doctors offices; churches; grocery stores and every place in between are all fair game for these future service dogs. The goal of course is to socialize the animals so that they will be comfortable in all situations and with a lot of people. Its about a two year program and naturally the person fostering the dog will become attached to it. The day will come when the dog will be moving on to be with its forever companion; a disabled veteran. You will know even through your sadness that a hero who fought for this great country of ours will be living a much improved life thanks to your efforts and your work. As if that would not be enough of a reward, there will always be another dog eagerly waiting to come into your life and begin the process all over again. To volunteer for this program, please contact Beverly Carver at 352-8736787. Bev is the President of the Marion County SPCA and is a wealth of information concerning the Patriot Dog Project.

Movie Night funLast Tuesday was a very interesting evening at the Cherrywood Movie Night. The feature film was The Lone Ranger, a movie that had been panned by the critics and had not done too well at the box office. Since in a previous article I had made mention of the movie and might I add, not in too glowing of terms, I was interested in the audiences reaction. Prior to the showing, Fred OHern and I made a wager of sorts. He said the film would be well received; I said the opposite. We asked those viewing the show to grade it on a one to ten scale; one being the worst, ten the best. Each guest marked their card and if it had an eight or better written on it; Fred got the vote. A 7 or less was a point for me. Admittedly I hadnt seen the movie before so in eager anticipation of its failure, I took my seat. After a relatively slow start, this outlandish; far fetched; farce had tickled my funny bone. You must understand of course that I am a fan of the Three Stooges; Laurel and Hardy; Abbot and Costello and Mel Brooks among others. As the night came to an end, the votes were tallied and alas, I made a $10 donation to the Patriot Dog Project. My donation joined with that of Bill Spangenberg who won the 50/50 drawing. All in all, it was a good night for those who came to see the movie; for the Patriot Dog Project and even for me. Next months movie is The Italian Job on Tuesday, Feb. 3 at 7 p.m. Come out and join us for a night of free entertainment; free pop corn; free lemonade and fun. From your reporterWhat a great community Cherrywood is to live in! You probably think that because I live here and write about the activities in this very active 55 plus development that I have a certain prejudice for it and that might be true. But let me just share a few of the things that make me proud to be a member of this community. SEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE21 000H444 R AMUNNO L AW F IRM P A Lorenzo Ramunno, Esq.

Guess we have been very lucky with our Florida weather compared to the residents up North. Friends of ours from Arkansas called last week and said it was 11 below zero and they were stuck in the house for 5 days. Sure glad we are here!Feature of the monthWell since I came back to write the Spruce Creek North column I have not had a feature, mostly because everyone was so busy with the holidays. But I hope to have a featured person or persons once a month. I start out the new year featuring Frank Costello. F rank was born in New York City on 106th Street. He had two sisters and one brother. F rank went to Benjamin Franklin school. Af ter finishing school he became a musician. He played the drums at many different clubs in New York City Later in 1945 he married Mildred Teyapini.They had one son John and later a grandson Mike. John and Mike still remain in the Bronx. Franks brother moved to Mar yland by his daughter, his one sister is 85 and lives in Long Island and his other sister is deceased. In 1963 he met and married Hermina Scharyan. F rank worked at the post office for a short time. They bought a nursery school in Long Island and ran it for 10 years until they finally sold it in 1977. They decided to take a trip to Belgium (many of Herminas family were back there) They ended up staying six Featur e of the Month: Fr ank Cost ello months. They returned to the U.S.A. and went to Jacksonville and stayed with Franks brother for a few weeks. Then it was time to get an apartment plus they also got jobs at a tennis club in Jacksonville. Eventually Frank became the assistant manager and they remained working there for 10 years. In the meantime they were having a home built in Spruce Creek North in 1987. They came down weekends until they moved there permanently in 1991. Before they moved Frank and Hermina took a vacation to Sanibel Island and they rented bikes. Frank got hooked and when he got home he bought a bike and has been riding ever since. Frank used to play poker ever y week but now plays billiards 2-3 times a week and also belongs to a billiard travel club that travels to Oak Run, Cherr ywood, OTOW and many other communities. He rides his bike every day Unfortunately Franks wife Hermina passed away in 2007. They were married 40 wonderful years. Frank will celebrate a birthday on April 5th. He will be 90 years old. God love him, he was a pleasure to interview .New Year s Eve PartyNews from Cindy Hutchins about the SCN New Years Eve party was very good. Over 50 residents attended and the hors doevres were delicious! The band was the Ocala Jazz band. All the decorations were beautiful (Its a shame to take them all down).Parties, Dances, etc.Dont forget the V alentines party Feb. 15 at the SCN clubhouse. Its $5 at the door. Also the P retenders from OTOW will perform on Sunday, F eb. 23. An ice cream social will follow.Sorry Bear s!Well I guess I cannot blame the bears for tearing our downspouts apart. A lady named Clare called me and said they had the very same thing done to their house ripped ever ything apart. They called the wildlife service and they said it was not a bear, it was a coyote! So there goes my bear story! Thanks for the call Clare!

Marshall Inspiring Traditional Worship 000H3AH Well its another new year and some more birthdays, cannot believe how fast the years go by. Guess we have been very lucky with our Florida weather compared to the residents up North. Friends of ours from Arkansas called last week and said it was 11 below zero and they were stuck in the house for 5 days. Sure glad we are here!Feature of the monthWell since I came back to write the Spruce Creek North column I have not had a feature, mostly because everyone was so busy with the holidays. But I hope to have a featured person or persons once a month. I start out the new year featuring Frank Costello. F rank was born in New York City on 106th Street. He had two sisters and one brother. F rank went to Benjamin Franklin school. Af ter finishing school he became a musician. He played the drums at many different clubs in New York City Later in 1945 he married Mildred Teyapini.They had one son John and later a grandson Mike. John and Mike still remain in the Bronx. Franks brother moved to Mar yland by his daughter, his one sister is 85 and lives in Long Island and his other sister is deceased. In 1963 he met and married Hermina Scharyan. F rank worked at the post office for a short time. They bought a nursery school in Long Island and ran it for 10 years until they finally sold it in 1977. They decided to take a trip to Belgium (many of Herminas family were back there) They ended up staying six Featur e of the Month: Fr ank Cost ello months. They returned to the U.S.A. and went to Jacksonville and stayed with Franks brother for a few weeks. Then it was time to get an apartment plus they also got jobs at a tennis club in Jacksonville. Eventually Frank became the assistant manager and they remained working there for 10 years. In the meantime they were having a home built in Spruce Creek North in 1987. They came down weekends until they moved there permanently in 1991. Before they moved Frank and Hermina took a vacation to Sanibel Island and they rented bikes. Frank got hooked and when he got home he bought a bike and has been riding ever since. Frank used to play poker ever y week but now plays billiards 2-3 times a week and also belongs to a billiard travel club that travels to Oak Run, Cherr ywood, OTOW and many other communities. He rides his bike every day Unfortunately Franks wife Hermina passed away in 2007. They were married 40 wonderful years. Frank will celebrate a birthday on April 5th. He will be 90 years old. God love him, he was a pleasure to interview .New Year s Eve PartyNews from Cindy Hutchins about the SCN New Years Eve party was very good. Over 50 residents attended and the hors doevres were delicious! The band was the Ocala Jazz band. All the decorations were beautiful (Its a shame to take them all down).Parties, Dances, etc.Dont forget the V alentines party Feb. 15 at the SCN clubhouse. Its $5 at the door. Also the P retenders from OTOW will perform on Sunday, F eb. 23. An ice cream social will follow.Sorry Bear s!Well I guess I cannot blame the bears for tearing our downspouts apart. A lady named Clare called me and said they had the very same thing done to their house ripped ever ything apart. They called the wildlife service and they said it was not a bear, it was a coyote! So there goes my bear story! Thanks for the call Clare! Secret Santa?Valerie and K en Kruse from SCN dropped me a note and asked if I could Spruce Creek North Jan Liberio Frank Costello PLEASESEESCN, PAGE15 SCNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 put this in my column. Seems that a secret Santa left a nice present and card for them on their front porch. They were truly surprised and thought it was very thoughtful and made their Christmas. Thanks so much Santa! Jan Liberio resides in Spruce Creek North with her husband Jim and can be reached via e-mail at Jnlib@aol.com or drop a note at the SCN clubhouse mail slots.

Pray for America, God is the answer. We are turning away from Gods word, caving in to the small percent of us who are willing to destroy the very things that America has stood for through the generations. Well guess what? We are through caving in to political correctness by accepting things that are biblically wrong, whether you like it or not. America was founded and prospered under Christian principles. We will stay that way so help us God. God Bless America! Wayne Rackley Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 By the time I had figured out what had happened, it was too late to do anything about it. When she hugged me, she stepped in front of me and therefore was ahead of me in line. I had one of those aha moments but there was nothing I could do about it at the time. I had to swallow my pride, display a contagious smile across my face and take it like a man. A man who has been outwitted by some lady he had no idea who she was. I now remember why I do not do any hugging. I know all hugs are not equal but with the memory I have I do not remember the difference and I am not taking any more chances. Driving home from the Post Office, I remembered the wise words of King Solomon. The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9). If I could just remember that, I certainly would be OK.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Religion PLEASESEERELIGION, PAGE13 Love the dog; help a vetIf you are a dog lover and you want to do something for a disabled veteran, we have just the program for you. Patriot Dogs needs foster homes for their dogs in training. What they are asking is for people who will take the dog a couple of weekends each month to be a part of a household. There is no expense involved in this program as veterinarian bills; shots; food and such are all paid for by Patriot Dogs. What is involved is you. You will be expected to take the dog every place you would normally go be it to some ones home for dinner or to the mall for a shopping spree. Doctors offices; churches; grocery stores and every place in between are all fair game for these future service dogs. The goal of course is to socialize the animals so that they will be comfortable in all situations and with a lot of people. Its about a two year program and naturally the person fostering the dog will become attached to it. The day will come when the dog will be moving on to be with its forever companion; a disabled veteran. You will know even through your sadness that a hero who fought for this great country of ours will be living a much improved life thanks to your efforts and your work. As if that would not be enough of a reward, there will always be another dog eagerly waiting to come into your life and begin the process all over again. To volunteer for this program, please contact Beverly Carver at 352-8736787. Bev is the President of the Marion County SPCA and is a wealth of information concerning the Patriot Dog Project.

Movie Night funLast Tuesday was a very interesting evening at the Cherrywood Movie Night. The feature film was The Lone Ranger, a movie that had been panned by the critics and had not done too well at the box office. Since in a previous article I had made mention of the movie and might I add, not in too glowing of terms, I was interested in the audiences reaction. Prior to the showing, Fred OHern and I made a wager of sorts. He said the film would be well received; I said the opposite. We asked those viewing the show to grade it on a one to ten scale; one being the worst, ten the best. Each guest marked their card and if it had an eight or better written on it; Fred got the vote. A 7 or less was a point for me. Admittedly I hadnt seen the movie before so in eager anticipation of its failure, I took my seat. After a relatively slow start, this outlandish; far fetched; farce had tickled my funny bone. You must understand of course that I am a fan of the Three Stooges; Laurel and Hardy; Abbot and Costello and Mel Brooks among others. As the night came to an end, the votes were tallied and alas, I made a $10 donation to the Patriot Dog Project. My donation joined with that of Bill Spangenberg who won the 50/50 drawing. All in all, it was a good night for those who came to see the movie; for the Patriot Dog Project and even for me. Next months movie is The Italian Job on Tuesday, Feb. 3 at 7 p.m. Come out and join us for a night of free entertainment; free pop corn; free lemonade and fun. From your reporterWhat a great community Cherrywood is to live in! You probably think that because I live here and write about the activities in this very active 55 plus development that I have a certain prejudice for it and that might be true. But let me just share a few of the things that make me proud to be a member of this community. SEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE21 000H444 R AMUNNO L AW F IRM P A Lorenzo Ramunno, Esq.

Friday, January 17, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, January 17, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although youre getting kudos and other positive reactions to your suggestions, dont let the cheers drown out some valid criticisms. Better to deal with them now than later. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Following your keen Bovine intuition pays off, as you not only reassess the suggestions some people are putting in front of you, but also their agendas for doing so. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You continue on a high-enthusiasm cycle as that new project youve assumed takes shape. Youre also buoyed by the anticipation of receiving some good news about a personal matter. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your eagerness to immerse yourself in your new assignment is understandable. But be careful that you dont forget to take care of that pressing personal situation as well. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good time to learn a new skill that could give a clever Cat an edge in the upcoming competition for workplace opportunities. Enjoy the arts with someone special. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You could risk creating an impasse if you insist on expecting more from others than theyre prepared to give. Showing flexibility in what youll accept could prevent a stalemate. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although you can weigh all factors of a dispute to find an agreeable solution for others, you might need the skilled input of someone you trust to help you deal with an situation of your own. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) The good news is that your brief period of self-doubt turns into a positive I can do anything attitude. The better news is that youll soon be able to prove it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a good time to start making travel plans while you still can select from a wide menu of choices and deals, and not be forced to settle for leftovers. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Like your zodiacal sign, the sure-footed Goat, you wont allow obstacles in your path to keep you from reaching your goal. Dont be surprised by who asks to go along with you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Let your head dominate your heart as you consider the risks that might be involved in agreeing to be a friends co-signer or otherwise act as his or her backup in a financial matter. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Prioritize: Resolve to close the door and let your voicemail take your phone calls while you finish up a task before the end-of-week deadline. Memory is a beautiful thing, that is, when it is working. I must confess there are many times in which my memory is on some kind of a vacation. What I want to know is simply this, how do you know you have forgotten something if you have forgotten it? I do many things I cannot remember exactly why I do them. Behind everything I do is a reason for why I do it or those things that I do not do. I must confess I am quite a reasonable person along this line. Without memory, we can take many things for granted. We go through motions we do not know why we are going through them, we just go through them. Everybody says that when you get older your memory rather takes a backseat. That may be the case with me, I am not quite sure. I cannot remember. I must confess it is a great asset at times to have a memory failure. For instance, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage accosts me and says, Did you remember...? She may have sent me to the grocery store to fetch something or she may have sent me, God forbid, to the mall to pick up something she ordered online. When she asked this question, I always respond by saying, I forgot, you know my memory is not what it used to be. It is an easy way to slither out of something I have forgotten to do. The older I get the more plausible this excuse is, I just cannot remember why. However, on those occasions when she is a little more exasperated than others at me she will say, Your memory never was what it used to be! What that means exactly I do not know. She probably told me sometime in the past, but right now, I simply cannot recall. I am perfectly happy just forgetting that for the time. Why is it I can remember things I do not want to remember and I cannot remember the things that I need to remember? For instance, I can remember the year my wife was born, but I can never recall the month or the day. As a good husband, I should reverse that, not remember the year and positively remember the month and day. Why is it when my wife is giving me a piece of her mind, all I can remember at the time is a funny incident that happened to me earlier that morning? Smiling at a time like that is not advantageous to a happy life of the husband. When she asks, What is so funny? I cannot tell her I was not listening to her but thinking about something else. My memory was jogged earlier this week when a certain incident happened at the Post Office. Anybody who knows me knows that I am not in any way shape or form a hugger. I am a firm believer in what the Bible says, the right hands of fellowship (Galatians 2:9). I am vigorous in this handshaking ceremony. That is about as far as it goes. I had quite forgotten my position along this line, or rather; I should say why I came to this position. Standing in a very long line at the post office at which time I was in somewhat of a hurry to get through a lady walked in. She looked at me and says, Oh, its so nice to see you. I havent seen you for a long time. Then she caught me off guard and gave me a hug. I did not know who this woman was; I could not remember ever seeing her before. With the way my memory is these days, I pretended as if she was a longlost friend of mine. She chatted about stuff that really did not make any sense to me at the time. I smiled and nodded my head and chatted away to her about things I am sure did not mean anything to her. I was not really paying attention and as the line moved forward, something dawned on me. You know how it is when all of a sudden something hits you. Your vacationing memory comes home and unpacks. Well, that happened to me standing there in line. She hugged me, then cut in front on line Out to Pastor Rev.

The motorcycle ride turned into a carpool trip due to the rain and cool temperatures, but that didnt stop the group from enjoying lunch at Eatons Beach.

Friday, January 17, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, January 17, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Aspecial award was presented at the Marion Landing New Years Eve Party this year. Board 1st Vice President John Alderson presented Sandy Olmsted with the Marion Landing Volunteer Recognition Award. When John was called up to the podium during the party, no one really knew why, but then he began his presentation and the reason became clear. Hello, everyone. Its great to see you all here, and to share with you saying goodbye to this year, and the bringing in of a new year. With the temporary closing of our Lifestyle Center in the near future, it was decided to use tonights social gathering to present a special Volunteer Recognition Award. Its my pleasure to present this award to a woman Im proud to call a friend, and whose youthful spirit and good heart Ive always admired and respected. Over the years shes taken on many challenges for the good of Marion Landing, and weve all benefited from her involvement, assistance, and her clear understanding and appreciation of the word Community. In her 11 years as a resident, shes been active in the Sunshine Committee, worked our Senior Games, and shes an avid water volleyball player. Shes been MC our Tuesday Morning Socials and organized numerous events and dances. She is also an active member of our Marion Landing Road Riders Motorcycle Group. For the past two years shes been the head of the Election Committee, and her most recent contribution is organizing the New Years Eve party we are enjoying now. Its my honor to present the Volunteer Recognition Award to Sandy Olmsted. Sandys engraved plaque will join the more than 164 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents who are nominated for the award by their peers, and we are seeking nominations of residents not previously recognized. If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a Board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director for consideration. Aluminum can recyclingMarion Landing residents have a long history of being environmentally conscious, and this is especially evident by one volunteer who has been coordinating our Aluminum Can Recycling committee for 12 years. Harold Heye keeps an eye on our recycling room (located outside the Bowling Center near the pool area), crushes cans if necessary, and arranges to turn them into the local recycling facility for cash. To date, for as long as Harold has been keeping records, this activity has brought in more than $8,000 in revenue to the community.

Tue., Jan 28, 11:00am 000H5G1 THE RETURNED By Jason Mott Although the beginning is promising, The Returned has more undead material than it knows what to do with. It begins in the small Southern town of Arcadia where the elderly Hargraves find their 8-year-old son, dead for more than half a century, on their doorstep. Emotions are mixed for seventyish Harold and Lucille. Whereas Lucilles maternal instincts kick in immediately, Harold is less welcoming. Everything then follows from this initial encounter. Such a miracle (or curse or end of times) is occurring all over the contemporary world as thousands of Returneds swell communities, taxing their limited resources and giving rise to anti-Returneds groups like The True Living, headed by a semi-deranged crank named Fred Green. Of course, even for people returning from the dead, there is paperwork. The International Bureau of the Returned was receiving funding faster than it could spend it. The irony was that no one within the Bureau knew more than anyone else. All they were really doing were counting people and giving them directions home. No comets herald the eerie event of the Returned; no prophets predict it or scientists explain it. It just happens. As sleepy Arcadia becomes increasingly violent and crowded and the Returned are incarcerated, the direction of the story flounders. Certainly, Mott does give readers much to ponder. For some the event is a blessing, a second chance at fatherhood or a renewal of lovebut for others the Returneds are not really their dead loved ones. Some even refer to them as its. The author leaves us wondering how we might be affected in our own lives if the dead returned. In the long run, though, the considerable hype and fanfare about this book does not live up to Motts creation. Even so, plans are afoot for it to become a television series in March. Too much undead material in this book Bookmark Pat Wellington The Ocala Symphony Orchestra welcomes talented musicians from across the nation for its 23rd annual Young Artist Competition. The auditions will take place on Saturday, Jan. 25, at the College of Central Florida.

On Christmas Eve, I went to the Ritz House for Homeless Veterans to deliver nearly a score of hand made Afghans. A woman by the name of Andrea had spent her entire summer making these beautiful works of art. For those of you who know anything about knitting and crocheting, you are well aware of how many hours went into this labor of love. If you all remember, Dec.24 was a very cold day with the promise of an even colder night. These hand made blankets were eagerly snatched up by the grateful residents who were not only thankful for the warmth they would give but for the beauty and care that went into each one. Recently Al Morrison from the Ritz House notified the Veterans Club that a female resident was about to be hired at a job. Her problem was that she had nothing to wear to work. Your Veterans Club donated $50 for her to go to the thrift store and buy some suitable attire but that was not enough according to our residents. Within a week, we had an abundance of clothing for her to wear and what made this even more remarkable was that she is a size 6. Last week, our Veterans Club President with the help of Bill Brotherhood delivered the check; clothing and a truck load of donated food for all of the residents. What this all means is that the lady in question now has the chance at a bright future. For the residents struggling to get back on their feet; they have food and warmth and even more important; they know that there are people behind them to encourage their success. Another program of Cherrywood is the Support our Soldiers Project. With the help of the Veterans Club; Norellen and Ed Pickell mail special supplies to our military in the field. These touches of home include beef jerky; orange slice candies; trail mix; assorted chips and nuts; liquid body wash and other personal hygiene items. Basically, any treat that they cant get in the PXs of Afghanistan is more than welcome by these service members. We have a box for donations in our clubhouse and each month our wonderful residents donate a wide array of gifts and cookies for our active military personnel. When we became involved with the Patriot Dog Project, the support was so overwhelming that we raised enough to purchase a dog within two months of announcing our goal. So impressed was the owner of Cherrywood Property Management; Chris Zacco, that he has pledged finds towards our next dog. We now have nearly $1,000 toward getting that second dog. These are but a few of the things we are doing and that spirit of love and giving carries over into all of our social activities. Bocce Ball to Cribbage; Yoga to 100 days of summer; movie night and mixed pool league; Accordion Club; Bingo and a dozen more functions are all enjoyable and well supported because of the attitude of our residents.. As with any group; organization or gathering of individuals, we have a few problems but they are so small; so insignificant; as to not be counted. What we do have is so impressive and so important that we must continue to build upon those assets. Our legacy must always be a sharing of mutual respect and affection; sacrifice and service. We are a community of generous loving people that is willing to reach out to one another and to those in need. It is that fact that makes me so proud to be a resident of Cherrywood and makes Cherrywood such a great place to live.

I dont drink, and Ive only tried weed twice in my entire life. The only reaction I had was to get thirsty. And I certainly dont need pot to get the munchies. Right now, you are probably asking yourself, Why bother even telling you this? Heres why: A lot of commentators who are musing about the spectacle of Colorados decriminalization of recreational marijuana find it necessary to begin their reflection by fondly reminiscing about their own mellow times getting stoned. Apparently they think it bestows credibility on them, as they ponder the long lines in Denver to buy newly legalized pot. Its now allowed in the state, but its still against federal law, and thats why a debate has lit up anew. Shouldnt it be treated like alcohol? The answer is, of course it should be. The restrictions against a drug that is clearly less harmful are clearly absurd, particularly when studies show that brutal penalties against violators are enforced much more harshly in Americas poor and minority communities. Alcohol is an addictive drug that is demonstrably more destructive to individual health and to society as a whole, its regulated and limited, but its sold to anyone who meets the age requirement. We should be able to lead our private lives as we want, as long as theres no danger to society. Of course there is plenty of danger, but we should be evenhanded. But here comes the preachy part: Why do we use the stuff? Why have we always indulged in substances that make us crazy, loud, destructive, you name it? Are we as a species so frightened of reality that we need to escape it by ingesting something mind-altering rather than just dealing with it? Obviously the answer is that we do need chemical reinforcement, since we have drunk, inhaled, chewed or injected it since the dawn of time. Its not just recreational use of drugs. If were feeling just the slightest bit sad, no matter what the good reason, theres always some physician willing to prescribe Zoloft or Prozac, or some other SSRI, which messes with the brains chemicals in ways no one fully understands. Is your kid a bit scattered? Well, its not hard to find a doctor to prescribe Adderall, which is speed, by the way. Its important to mention that these pharmaceuticals provide tremendous benefit to those who have a genuine medical or psychological problem, but the stuff is dangerous to those who dont. Instead of dealing with their issues, they want to cop out by becoming numbed. Thats the appeal of alcohol, marijuana and the other playtime substances they numb us. But why do we want that? Yes, Im sure this is being dismissed by many of you as a priggish attack on fun, but Id love to think I enjoy a good time as much as the next person. I just dont want to regret it afterward. Id like to remember it the next day when I wake up. But we really do need to wake up. Sure, legalize this stuff, but realize what it does to us.Distributed by King Features Synd. Most people dont like getting credit and collection calls, because it means they havent paid their bills and their names have been turned over to an agency that does such things. They dont like being reminded, but always say the check is in the mail. But for some of us, getting collection calls is annoying for another reason. The collection agency is calling someone you dont know. Here at the West Marion Messenger/South Marion Citizen, we recently got a new phone number just for news. I can tell you the names of the last four people who had this phone number before me, and I can tell you that all of them probably gave up the phone number to stop the calls for collection. Now Im getting them all. Ive found its not easy to get your phone number off the collection list. You can tell the person at the other end that its a wrong number, but a different agent with a different name calls that same number, and when told that the number was supposed to be removed from their data base, they say that if a new account came in showing that number, well, tough luck. Collection agencies have some rules they have to follow, especially concerning hours they can call, what they can say, etc. However, there doesnt appear to be any law that makes collection agencies verify phone numbers before they call them. Whatever number they are given, thats the number they call. I have tried all sorts of tactics. Ive been nice and told them the story politely. That elicits a promise to remove my number, but then a few days later the phone will ring and it will be the same agency, although a different person. Ive been nasty and told them they were guilty of interstate harassment, and that I would take their number to the U.S. Attorneys office. They almost laugh at me, then go back to their script. Ive pressed the button after the recording says, If you are not -, please press 2. That doesnt do any good, though, because theyll just call back later. The only anxious reaction I got was when I said, Are you aware you called a newspaper office? I then ask if I can have their name so when I write the story I can quote them. Funny, those people never call back. Ive been thinking of pretending I speak some foreign language that nobody will understand. I might try that one next time, speaking gibberish all the way, just to see what they say. The problem is a lot of these calls are automated, so Im not talking to a real person. Basically, I just want the calls to stop, and if it takes federal regulations tightening up on these callers, so be it. Id love to name the people whose collection calls Im getting, but then Id probably be sued for invasion of privacy or something. But then, at least, the collection agencies would know where to find these people. Maybe that way I can perform a service.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

At the conclusion of the Marion County Commission meetings, there is a time slot for public comment, the second opportunity for the audience to address the commissioners, this time after most action has been taken. At the most recent meeting on Jan. 7, a number of people got up to speak, and for a change the subject wasnt baseball. It was about trauma. More specifically, Ocala Regionals Level II Trauma Center. ORMC is facing litigation initiated by Shands in Gainesville, seeking to have the Trauma Center here closed. When you get through all the legal verbage, its all about one thing money. Shands fears it will lose money as a result of the 1year-old Trauma Center which serves Marion and two other counties to the south and west. The speakers had a basic theme. It should remain open because a trauma center can save lives of Marion County residents. Commissioners appear to agree. Kathy Bryant gave the most stark example, referring to a recent single-vehicle accident in the wee hours on Southwest 20th Street, near the Interstate overpass and close to the northwest corner of the college. Two young men were pinned in the vehicle for more than two hours. Bryant pointed out that a trauma surgeon from Ocala Regional came to the scene and worked with rescue personnel so one of the young men could be safely pulled out with, as Bryant put it, losing his leg. Bryant and others wondered openly whether such timely service would have been provided had we still be dependent on Shands in Gainesville for our trauma service. The general feeling was, no chance. The sentiments expressed generally had one tone: Shands cares more about money than the lives of the residents of Marion and the other counties. Its obvious to all of us who live here that having the best medical facilities possible is beneficial to all of us. No we just have to make sure that the bottom-line-only people up at Shands feel the same way. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Trauma Center should stay open Sorry, theres nobody here by that name Why do Americans need mind-numbing stuff? READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor child, dont create a never ending financial burden on the rest of us. Take responsibility for your life, complete your education. Get away from the idea that it is governments responsibility to take care of you. This is a pet idea of liberals, some expressed in this paper, even though there is nothing in our Constitution that gives you the right to other peoples money, so called forced charity by the Fed. Liberals should start giving more to real charities! Facts again show that Conservatives far outgive Liberals, although the news media would have you believe otherwise. Drug PolicyAlmost 80 years of a national drug policy has utterly failed to achieve its objective of public health protection and has instead caused incalculable human harm, misery and unbounded expense. Legalization, taxation and regulation of cannabis products is a public policy experiment whose effects are yet to be known but whose time has come to find out. Washington and Colorado residents have cast a decisive vote against the failed drugwar policies and are making thoughtful efforts to try something different. Other states will eventually follow when the dire predictions of drugwar defenders fail to materialize and common sense prevails. Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunPoverty in AmericaObama has now declared a new war on poverty with big federal government having the answers. Of course, as with all liberals, he believes the redistribution of wealth, taking money from those who earn it to give to those who dont, will answer the problem. This doesnt address the problems, it just leads to more division, class warfare, socialism or worse. The following will draw fire from liberals but its time we stop this politically correct nonsense and tell the truth be correct! We need to have far fewer single moms. Facts show this is a sure way to have more children born into fatherless, low income homes, assuring generational poverty.

OTOWCONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 On Jan. 16, Jews all over the world will celebrate a holiday called Tu Bishvat dedicated to nature and the preservation of the environment. Long before green technology or before global warming, Jews set aside the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat to rejoice in the coming of spring to the Land of Israel. Since the almond tree blossoms on this date, it was a fitting time to honor trees and nature. In the Diaspora, it is often winter, so trees are planted by proxy in Israel through the auspices of the Jewish National Fund. With the advent of the State of Israel and the rise of modern Zionism, interest in the Holy Land has fostered and Jews worldwide send contributions for the planting of trees and the beautification of the infrastructure. It is also customary to eat fruits from Israel such as carob, figs, dates, oranges and pomegranates. In Jewish tradition, trees are often planted in memory or in honor of a person. Whole forests such as the JFK memorial one in Israel, honoring the slain president, are used as legacies that live on. The whole concept of a tree whose legacy grows and continues to thrive is a theme that is prevalent in Judaism as the Torah, a living document, is often referred to as a Tree of Life. Recently, the Indianapolis Childrens Museum has come into possession of some 11 saplings grown from the original chestnut tree that grew outside of Anne Franks window near her attic hideout in Amsterdam. The young Jewish girl hid with her family from the Nazis for 25 months until they were betrayed and arrested in 1944. During the time they were in hiding, the Frank family had to be quiet during the day in order to escape detection. Fourteen year old Anne kept a diary which was discovered by her father who survived after the war and after its publication, the world learned of the tragic circumstances of the Jews in Amsterdam. To keep Anne Franks legacy alive, 11 locations around the United States were chosen to receive these saplings for planting based the locations dedication to tolerance, peace, social justice and equality. One of the locations includes a park honoring 9/11 victims and an Arkansas school that was the seat of the desegregation battle according to the Anne Frank Center USA. At the Indianapolis Childrens Museum, the sapling will be planted in a peace park with a sculpture of Anne Franks diary near it. The famous chestnut tree is referenced several times in her diary. For a family in captivity, this was their connection to nature and the living, natural world. Nearly every morning I go to the attic, a February 23, 1944 entry reads, From my favorite spot on the floor I look up at the blue sky and the bare chestnut tree, on whose branches little raindrops shine, appearing like silver, and at the seagulls and other birds as they glide on the wind. In spite of her precarious situation, her writings reflect hope and the belief in the humanity of people. It is these positive words that kept her focused on survival during a time of prejudice and intolerance. In 2007, the famous chestnut was deemed a safety Anne Franks growing legacy Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE25 Saturday, Feb. 15 Valentine Day Dance at St. JudeSt. Jude Marion Oaks Knights of Columbus Council 15644 are having their first Valentines Day Dance on Saturday, Feb. 15, from 6 to 11 p.m. at the St. Jude Catholic Community Parish Hall, 443 Marion Oaks Drive in Marion Oaks.

Public outcry gave the tree a reprieve but subsequently, nature and age brought the famous tree to the ground. To keep Anne Franks legacy growing, the city fathers cultivated saplings from the chestnut and sent them to the United States for planting in designated spots. In keeping with the spirit of Tu Bishvat, may tolerance and understanding grow and flourish. May people of all races, creeds and nationalities learn to live and work in harmony. May the words of a young girls diary inspire us to work for the betterment of humanity. And may her legacy continue to grow like the chestnut saplings planted in her memory. JUDICONTINUED FROM PAGE 23 Ben Franklin was born in 1706 on todays date. He was a leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, postmaster, scientist, musician, inventor, satirist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat. Pun Alley takes a look at some comic aspects of his activities. Franklin published his famous periodical Poor Richards Almanac from 1732 to 1758. He knew that brevity was the soul of wit, and made his humorous strokes quickly, deftly, and subtly so subtly, in fact, that those unaccustomed to humor which makes demands on the intellect instead of the emotions sometimes miss it altogether. Much of his humor and proverbs still in use came from the Almanac: An apple a day keeps the doctor away. A countryman between two lawyers is like a fish between two cats. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes. A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle. God works wonders now and then; behold a lawyer, an honest man. An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. Anger is never without a reason, but seldom with a good one. It is as truly folly for the poor to ape the rich, as for the frog to swell, in order to equal the ox. It is hard for an empty bag to stand upright. Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days. He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else. God heals, and the doctor takes the fee. A penny saved, is a penny earned. If you do what you should not, you must hear what you would not. A learned blockhead is a greater blockhead than an ignorant one. Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. He who falls in love with himself will have no rivals. If a man could have half of his wishes, he would double his troubles. Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, half shut afterwards. She laughs at everything you say. Why? Because she has fine teeth. Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment. The world is full of fools and faint hearts; and yet every one has courage enough to bear the misfortunes, and wisdom enough to manage the affairs, of his neighbor. God helps them that help themselves. Lifes tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late. As an author, Franklin was known for putting subtle jokes in many of his papers that only the most astute would spot. He was so famous for this that when the states representatives were deciding who should write the Declaration of Independence, they chose Jefferson over the significantly more qualified and respected Franklin, as some feared Franklin would embed subtle humor and satire in it that wouldnt be recognized until it was too late to change. Knowing this document would likely be examined closely, they chose to avoid the issue by having the much less gifted writer, Jefferson, write it instead, with Franklin and three others to help Jefferson draft it. After the signing of the Declaration of Independence, John Hancock told Franklin that the country had an important task for him. Franklin jokingly replied that he was too old to be a soldier. What Hancock really wanted was a minister in France to raise money and generate diplomatic support for the revolutionary war. Franklin agreed, saying, Thats alright, a soldier has to die for his country, but a diplomat only has to lie for his country. Many believe that Franklin invented the idea of daylight saving time. Actually, his proposal was written as satire. In a comedic letter published in a Paris newspaper, he mentioned something like daylight saving time. Although, instead of changing clocks, he suggested ringing church bells and firing cannons, among other things, as the sun rises to maximize the amount of time people would be awake during times when the sun is providing free light. The letter was meant to be a satire, rather than actually suggesting these changes be made. Franklin was a man after my own heart. I think he would have enjoyed Pun Alley and certainly would have improved its jokes and stories.

Circle Square Cultural Center is at 8395 SW 80th St. Fire damages house in Oak Run A family is safe and their home salvageable due to the homeowners early detection and Marion County Fire Rescues response to an Oak Run fire. Dispatchers at Marion County Public Safety Communications received an emergency call from a homeowner at 8121 SW 117th Loop, Ocala, at 2:56 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 13. The caller advised her home was on fire and she was having difficulty getting her husband outside. When firefighters arrived, they immediately helped the callers husband to safety. All of the homes three occupants escaped uninjured. The 3,100-square-foot residence was approximately 25 percent involved when Engine 31 arrived first on scene. Twenty firefighters and 10 units were dedicated to the fire, which originated in the garage, and had it under control at 3:18 a.m., less than 25 minutes after dispatchers received the initial emergency call. Crews made entry into the home with an offensive attack and contained the fire to a quarter of the residence. The homeowner called 911 immediately after being awakened by a noise in the garage and realizing a fire had ignited.
