Sean Peete addressed the commissioners during the public access portion of the meeting. Other speakers from his group yielded their time to Peete so he could speak more than the allotted two minutes. Peete wanted the commissioners to provide space in the courthouse, including three rooms with secure doors, chairs for a secretary, administrators and 25 grand jurors, and a budget of $1.5 million, all this month. The countys budget is finalized in the fall. Peete started with reference to the Magna Carta, a document in England in the year 1215 forced by the people onto King John. He said commissioners would be guilty of dereliction of duty and that was a criminal act if they did not grant his requests. Peete said the people were the supreme rulers and had the right to appoint a grand jury, which would not include any public servants. Take notice, no man is above the law, he told commissioners. He had threatened to charge commissioners with obstruction of justice. County Attorney Guy Minter pointed out that grand juries can only be appointed by legal officials, that there was nothing that allowed people to appoint their own grand jury. Commissioner Kathy Bryant made no attempt to hide her anger as she addressed the group after Peete finished, criticizing the men for walking in here and demand over $2 million for something the county is already doing. Although the request was for $1.5 million, and this was pointed out to her, she said that with added costs in addition to the budget request it would come to more than $2 million. But the toughest reaction came from Court Clerk David Ellspermann who emphatically said, At no point will this clerk provide them space, and he urged commissioners not to take action. Ellspermann also said he would refer the comments to Brad King, state attorney. He was referring to a state law, 843.0855, which in part says: A person who simulates legal process, including, but not limited to, actions affecting title to real estate or personal property, indictments, subpoenas, warrants, injunctions, liens, orders, judgments, or any legal documents or proceedings, knowing or having reason to know the contents of any such documents or proceedings or the basis for any action to be fraudulent, commits a felony of the third degree 28~ Friday, January 24, 2014 www.smcitizen.com County rejects call for common law space PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKMartin Luther King Jr. paradeThousands of marchers filled Silver Springs Boulevard on Monday to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the holiday in his honor.

The objective of the class was to demonstrate that exercise can be functional and fun. The exercises that support the function of daily living (ADLs) are important to preserve independence as we age. Functional Fitness exercises help in real life. The exercises should be done regularly but should be age related. Strength and speed of motion equals power. We lose that with age. We need muscle strength, endurance, dexterity, and pain free range of motion. The activities of daily living are chair rising, stair climbing, gait when standing and walking, etc. Fit to function exercises help with this. It integrates strength, mechanics, and function. Some of the exercises are pushing and pulling, bending and extending, and stabilizing the core. It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver Mohandas Gandhi Posture Proud Caring for our Carriage Jessica Pinkowski gave this class at Classroom 1 in MTP Learning Center. Some of the consequences of not holding our carriage properly are that we dont walk, bend, lift, reach or balance as well. We can change the way we age by staying active. Functional fitness improves posture with practice. While sitting on a chair with feet flat on the floor, the four points of posture are: sit up, lift your chest, retract shoulders, and brace core. The benefits are better brain function, kinetic chain organ function, better breath control, balance center of gravity, line of gravity, less joint stress.June Roberta can be reached at jroberta@cfl.rr.com.

Friday, January 24, 2014 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, January 24, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Taking some time out of your busy social life could be just what you need to help you focus on putting those finishing touches on plans for a career change. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A misunderstanding about a colleagues suggestions could create a delay in moving on with your proposal. But by weeks end, all the confusing points should finally be cleared up. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might feel overwhelmed by all the tasks you suddenly have to take care of. But just say the magic word help! and youll soon find others rushing to offer much-needed assistance. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Finishing a current project ahead of schedule leaves you free to deal with other upcoming situations, including a possible workplace change, as well as a demanding personal matter. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Turn that fine-tuned feline sensitivity radar up to high to help uncover any facts that could influence a decision you might be preparing to make. Devote the weekend to family activities. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A state of confusion is soon cleared up with explanations from the responsible parties. Dont waste time chastising anyone. Instead, move forward with your plans. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might feel obligated to help work out a dispute between family members. But this is one of those times when you should step aside and let them work out their problems on their own. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your ability to resolve an onthe-job problem without leaving too many ruffled feathers earns you kudos from coworkers. You also impress major decision-makers at your workplace. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Newly made and longheld friendships merge well, with possibly one exception. Take time to listen to the dissenters explanations. You could learn something. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Be prepared to be flexible about your travel plans. Although you dont have to take them, at least consider suggestions from the experts in the travel business. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A problem with a financial transaction could lead to more problems later on unless you resolve it immediately. Get all the proof you need to support your position. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Daydreaming makes it difficult to stay focused on what you need to do. But reality sets in by midweek, and you manage to get everything done in time for a relaxing weekend. Gospel Musics leading fan and trade publication. Karen, Susan and Jeff have also received many awards from other magazine publications and Internet publications. Over the past four years, New River has had five consecutive #1 songs in Southern Gospel Music. In addition, their current album, Reach Out, has had two consecutive #1 songs for On the Banks of the Promised Land and Mighty Big God. With appearances on such prestigious stages as The Grand Ole Opry, The Gaither Homecoming concerts, Opryland Theme Park, Dollywood and Six Flags Over Georgia, New River has firmly established their place at the forefront of Southern Gospel Music. Over the past decade, they have been featured on many television networks, with appearances on TBNs Praise The Lord, the Grand Ole Opry Live and the popular Gaither Gospel video Series. The group has enjoyed many honors and accolades. They have received numerous industry and fan award nominations. A few of their other previous popular hits include: Hold Me While I Cry, Just One Touch, I Wanna Know, God Likes To Work, Daddys Home, When Jesus Passes By, God Still Answers Prayer, and Christian In The House. Additionally, the groups Number One hit, Four Days Late, was also named Song of the Year by readers of The Singing New Magazine in 2001 and the SGMA Awards and continues to be a favorite among audiences. Each song pulls at a different heartstring, yet the message of hope is always present. Thats what life in Christ is all about. As a result of various circumstances each member has faced over the past years, were at a point in our lives where we realize that anything we achieve or accomplish is all because of Christ. It is an honor to serve Him. New River sets a new standard for musical perfection with rich vocal harmony that is shaded with the sophistication of Southern Gospel, country and progressive musical sounds. New River today stands not only as a talented and successful recording artist, but more importantly, effective messengers presenting the Gospel, through Jesus Christ.

Friday, January 24, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, January 24, 2014 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenPresident Obama has some nerve. He opened his speech on NSA spying by likening his surveillance regime to Paul Revere and the Sons of Liberty. How insulting! They were helping people resist government tyranny, and the British spied on them to put down the coming rebellion. In sizing up Obamas reforms of the indiscriminate gathering of data on every American, remember this: Politicians will do everything they can get away with in pursuit of their own agenda. To them, liberty and privacy are unimportant, things to be gotten around with the minimum of public attention. Should the public get wind of some untoward thing the politicians are up to as it did, thanks to Edward Snowden they will put on a public-relations show to lull the people back to sleep, enabling the state once again to go about its unsavory business unobserved. That is whats happening here. As Glenn Greenwald aptly put it, Obamas defining value to the permanent power factions that run Washington is that he prettifies the ugly; he drapes the banner of change over systematic status quo perpetuation; he makes Americans feel better about policies they find repellent without the need to change any of them in meaningful ways. Hes not an agent of change but the soothing branding packaging for it. Thus, the appropriate attitude toward the so-called reforms is deep skepticism. You want evidence? Obama expressed confidence in the integrity of those who lead our intelligence community. He has apparently forgotten that the director of national intelligence, James Clapper, told a boldfaced lie to a Senate committee when he said No, sir to this question from Sen. Ron Wyden: Does the [NSA] collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans? (Clapper later explained that this was the least untruthful answer he could give.) Obamas spokesman said the president certainly believes that Director Clapper has been straight and direct in the answers hes given. Obamas own veracity must also be questioned. In his speech he said that when he was a senator he was critical of the George W. Bush administrations warrantless eavesdropping. But if thats true, why did he vote for the 2008 FISA law, which, as Greenwald notes, legalized the bulk of the once-illegal Bush program? To the extent Obama has become more favorable to surveillance since the Bush years its apparently because, as a former aide told the New York Times, he trusts himself to use these powers more than he did the Bush administration. In light of this flagrant disregard for the truth and willingness to bamboozle the people, why should anyone take Obamas reforms seriously? He promises mostly executivebranch safeguards created by Clapper and Attorney General Eric Holder but in the end, this will be little more than window dressing to regain public trust. There are always emergency escape clauses. To be sure, Obama is clever. He says, Given the unique power of the state, it is not enough for leaders to say: Trust us, we wont abuse the data we collect. For history has too many examples when that trust has been breached. Our system of government is built on the premise that our liberty cannot depend on the good intentions of those in power; it depends on the law to constrain those in power. But the law cant constrain those in power, because the law is always interpreted and enforced or not enforced by those very people in power. Ultimately, government officials define their own powers. Checks and balances mean that one part of the state monitors another part. Its hard to muster confidence in such a weak safeguard. Obama says we need surveillance to protect us from terrorists. But we could be safe without having our freedoms trampled if the government would stop committing and enabling oppression in foreign countries, thus creating the desire for revenge against Americans. Freedom and security require no trade-off, because genuine freedom includes security against government snooping. Obama asks for trust, but we have too much experience to grant him his wish. Yet even if government officials had pure motives, they still should not be trusted with the power to spy.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). When I want to watch television, I sit down and hit my remote and hope that my cable is working. The stations come in clear and bright on my TV, which is HD but small. I havent used an antenna for so many years, I forgot that there are still people who use one of the new digital antennae to get overthe-air signals. For those people, this story that circulated last week was very meaningful. There is a company called Aereo, which you can search for on the Internet. It operates only in major cities, but is looking to expand. What Aereo does is it picks up over-the-air signals for regular broadcast stations, then transmits those signals to small antennae hooked up to peoples computers, allowing them to get a live stream on the Internet of the standard broadcast networks and their affiliates. The stations and networks dont like that. They get paid a rights fee by cable and satellite companies so the company is authorized to pick up the signal and rebroadcast it. Its good money for the stations. They feel threatened by Aereo, which pays no rights fees, plucking the signals out of the air. It has been a long held principle that the airwaves belong to the public, and when stations apply for a license, they pledge to serve the public interest. That appears to be what Aereo is counting on. The case has now reached the U.S. Supreme Court, which recently decided to take up the fight. The ruling could have major implications. Some networks, including Fox, have already hinted that if the court rules in favor of Aereos rights to pull in the signals, the network will stop broadcasting over the air. In other words, youll have to have a cable or satellite system to watch regular over-theair television, the type that many of us were brought up with. The first part of the death knell of broadcast stations came with the government edict that all had to broadcast in digital format, something which made the old rabbit ear antennae obsolete If you wanted the stations over the air, then you had to get a new digital antenna. Now comes the proverbial nail in the coffin, and it rests in the hands of the nine justices in Washington. If you get your TV over cable or satellite, you probably wouldnt notice any difference. But for those who cant afford those services, free television could become a thing of the past. Stay tuned, but make sure youre tuned in on cable.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Do not use any other word processing programs. Once again, we review a couple of weeks with some stories that make no sense, whether accidental mistakes that put people in jeopardy or violence against others. The first mistake occurred when a Southwest Airlines jet headed from Chicago to Branson, Missouri, missed the Branson airport by seven miles. The plane landed at an airport whose runway was only half the size of Bransons, and as a result the pilot had to jam on the brakes just 500 feet short of an embankment that would have sent the plane tumbling onto a highway. People say that it happens more than we realize, but thats of little comfort. In this day and age of computer navigation, missing a target by seven miles doesnt seem possible. The next mistake took place in Cincinnati, but the fault is clearly evident. A drunk man had an argument with his wife, and in the house fired a gun into the air. The bullet went into the lung of his daughter, who was upstairs, and killed her. Hes facing all sorts of felony charges. Then there were the cases of ridiculous violence. In Wesley Chapel, about 50 or so miles south of here, a former Tampa policeman tried to get a man in front of him to stop texting in a movie theater. The man refused, they got into an argument, the man threw popcorn at the former Tampa officer, who then drew a gun and shot the man, killing him and wounding his wife. In Elkhart, Ind., a man went into a supermarket and started shooting, killing two people before being killed by Elkhart police. Quick response by the police is credited with saving lives. In New Mexico, a 12-year-old walked into his middle school gym and fired three shotgun blasts, hitting two students. He was captured and taken into custody. In Valparaiso, Indiana, a man who had been cut off on the Interstate chased the pickup truck in front of him and fired a shot through the window. The driver of the pickup was struck, but was able to keep control. The shooter was not apprehended. All of this happened within two weeks. Get the picture? There are many people out of control in this country, and things dont appear to be getting better. If you feel angry about something, take your time and calm down. Nothing good comes from uncontrolled anger. Whats the solution? Who knows? But whats important to you is to be alert, no matter where you go, so you can take evasive action when something appears to be going wrong. Always watch out for the other guy. Football game isnt SuperHave you ever paid attention to the disclaimer on the Super Bowl. This product is the property of the National Football League, and any use of the descriptions and accounts of this game, such as charging admission for its showing, without the written consent of the NFL is prohibited. That is something that is particularly enforced for the Super Bowl. So we warn our writers not to call it a Super Bowl Party if youre charging admission, even if its only a couple of bucks. Youre violating a trademark if you do, and the NFL has spies everywhere. Trademark rules can be complicated, but basically, if it starts with capital letters, dont advertise that youre charging admission. That way you wont get one of those nasty letters the NFL sends out.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Friday, January 24, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, January 24, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Some people have what they call their bucket list. I am not too sure what this is all about but it seems to me it is a list of things people would like to do before they kick the bucket. Me, I do not plan to kick any bucket as long as I am alive. I have other targets for my kicking. I understand that the general concept is there are things people would like to do before they die and I suppose everyone has their own list. But I have too many things on my to-do-list from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. I affectionately refer to this as the kick my butt list. As long as I have been married, and it has been longer than I can remember, you would think I would have come to grips with this dynamic in the marriage relationship. To a certain extent, I have. I do certain things without asking any questions or even complaining, at least out loud. What I say under my breath is between me and myself. Sometimes we, me and myself, get into significant arguments. The problem is, I never know if me is winning or myself? In one case, there was a tie, but I cannot recall what it was about. Lately, I have come up with a novel tactic in dealing with this scenario. It came to me quite by accident. You know how it is, you think of something to say, but usually the day after you needed to say it. I have great comebacks to everything I hear except the fact that the comebacks are usually a day late and a phrase too short. I hate it when I am driving down and think of what I should have said. I have a whole list of what I should have said to certain people but it is too late and there is nothing I can do about it. Recently I hit the target. (I just hope my identity has not been hacked!) It was one day last week when my wife looked at me and said in one of those tones, Have you taken out the garbage? She is always surprising me with questions related to things she has asked me to do. My problem is my attention span is about as long as my memory. Personally, I think she takes advantage of me in this area. I looked at her with one of my infamous dummified faces. She responded, You did not take out the garbage, did you? You never do what I ask you to do. Without thinking, and I mean it quite literally, I quipped, Well, Ive never robbed a bank... yet! Where that came from, I will never know. To my recollection, I have never even thought about robbing a bank. I do not know where I would start in the first place. With an astonished look my wife responded, What bank have you been thinking of robbing? It worked beautifully. I did not think it would work as well as it did because I did not put any forethought into this. However, it did get her off the topic at hand. For the next several moments, all she could talk about was me robbing a bank and the horrific trouble we would be in if caught. Any individual successful in life needs to be able to put forth the proper words. For me, I found the right words. Coming in the door the other day I was greeted with, Did you get the quart of milk I asked you to get when you left this morning? Without thinking, which is the beauty of this strategy, I responded by saying, No, and I havent robbed a bank yet, either. Only one problem with this kind of victory. Who can I brag to about it? I cannot tell my wife because then I could not use it anymore. It is awful to have something that you cannot share with your significant other. I am not sure how long I can keep this secret. The only thing I can do at this point is to smile. And boy, have I been smiling lately. No matter what she throws my way, I respond by smiling and saying, And I havent robbed a bank yet, either. Is it possible to have too much fun? I mean, as a husband? All my life I have tried to get the upper hand and all my life I have not succeeded only to shake hands with myself. Until now, that is. How long it will last is anybodys guess. Im just not guessing at this point. Sometimes people get depressed about all the things they have done in life. Some are pretty bad things. Occasionally, it is good to think about all the things you have not done. I may not be Having fun as a husband: Ive never robbed a bank, yet Out to Pastor Rev.

The Lutheran Men in Mission (LMM) have a monthly breakfast meeting in Fellowship Hall in which one of them makes the pancakes (I presume) since it has not been my experience. They are very active throughout the year planning trips to special shows, or a golf trip, going on a retreat for spiritual renewal, ringing the bells for the Salvation Army at Christmas time and assisting a local florist to deliver flowers on Mothers Day. Each month they have committed to cleaning up the SW 95th Street Road, between SW 60th Street and SR 200. Needless to say when there is heavy work to do around the church, like cleaning up the grounds, moving the donated wares for the annual yard sale, the LMM will be there to help. One enjoyable joint men and womens activity is Pairs and Spares. This is a group, usually of eight people, who meet monthly in someones home or a restaurant and have dinner. It is just a time to get-together and become more acquainted with fellow parishioners. For more information about the activities at Joy contact Pastor Ed Holloway at 352-854-4509 ext. 223, or Fran Johnson at 352-854-4509 ext. 221 or go online at www.joyocala.org.

All this week you should have been enjoying some sugary treats. According to the Internet site, Bizarre, Crazy, Silly Unknown Holidays, Sugar Awareness Week ends Saturday. While enjoying some leftover Christmas candy, I rounded up some sweet stories for you.Sweet lady?At the start of an important trial, a small town attorney called his first witness to the stand. She seemed like a sweet, elderly woman. He approached her and asked, Mrs. Jones, do you know me? She responded, Why, yes, I do know you Mr. Williams. Ive known you since you were a young boy. Youve become a huge disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife; you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You dont have the brains to realize you never will amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do he pointed across the room and asked, Mrs. Williams, do you know the defense attorney? She replied, Why, of course I do. Ive known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He, also, is a real disappointment. Hes lazy, bigoted, never has a nice word to say about anybody, and he drinks like a fish. Hes been divorced five times, and everybody knows that his law practice is one of the shoddiest in the entire state. The judge rapped his gavel, to quiet the tittering among the spectators in the courtroom. Then he called both attorneys to his bench. In a quiet, menacing voice, he warned, If either of you asks her if she knows me, youll be jailed for contempt!Sweet but toughAn extremely sweet variety of peas have been developed that choke out any other plants growing nearby. The dying plants could be heard singing, Peas release me, let me grow! Unlike most boys, Johnny was extremely fond of these new sweet peas. When he was bad, his mother omitted them from his dinner as a punishment. That evening he moaned, Where are the peas? His mother replied, You know what they say, Johnny, no peas for the wicked.GumdropsWhen the wholesale price of sugar doubled, the grocers raised cane. Artificial sugars and, in more recent years, artificial fat have been developed. Now there is artificial spaghetti. Its called Impasta. Cane sugar cant be beet. Theres a special candy made of chocolate and peanut butter specifically designed for playgrounds. Its called Recess Pieces. Oh dear! Ive missed you so much! said the sweet young thing and then she raised the revolver and tried again. Those who eat candy with both hands are ambi-dextrose. In court when he was accused of breaking into a liquor store, he took the fifth. Both sugar and vinegar are preservatives, so it seems to boil down to whether you want to be in a jam or be pickled. The drug dealer added sugar to his marijuana to sweeten the pot. My brother is in the candy business. Is he doing well? So far hes made a mint.Unexpected rewardWhen I saw my friend Jim Monday I noticed his black eye. It was a real shiner. What the heck happened to you? Were you mugged? I asked. Worse Jim said painfully. Suzie and I went to that bed and breakfast in Williston this weekend. We met Liz and Kevin there. Well? How did you get that black eye and those bruises on your body and arms? Well, Sunday morning we were seated at the table with Liz and Kevin and a couple on their honeymoon. We were all having breakfast together. That honeymoon couple looked at each other with love in their eyes, when he turned to his new bride and asked, Would you please pass the sugar, sugar. We all smiled and Suzie had that look, you know the isnt that romantic look women get. Then Kevin said to Liz, please pass the honey, honey.Friday, January 24, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, January 24, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Sugar in the morning, sugar in the evening, sugar at suppertime Pun Alley Dick Frank PLEASESEEPUN, PAGE12 Although few of us work for a salary during retirement, there are still things that require our attention that no one else can handle. Too often we avoid the task as long as possible spending more time dreading it than actually completing it. Instead of procrastinating, the solution is just to get it done as soon as possible. Then there is just one less item to cross off the to do list. Anticipation sometimes is worse than the execution. The relief of the job finally done brings with it pleasure and a great sense of accomplishment.Master the PossibilitiesMaster the Possibilities concludes a very successful January next week. They would like to recommend some unique programs you may have missed. On Monday, Jan. 27 join legendary Metropolitan Opera baritone Sherrill Milnes in person and on film with many of his friends.

Friday, January 24, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, January 24, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Suzie gave a heavy sigh and looked at me. The last thing I remember before waking up in the emergency room was turning to Suzie and saying Please pass the tea bag.Horse senseTraces of horsemeat have been found in a fast-food restaurants tacos. The discovery was made by pure luck when someone noticed that customers who regularly ordered tacos often requested a cube of sugar with them. Most people are unaware of the love that Frank Sinatra had for the Jewish people. His baby sitter was a Jewish lady who must have had a great influence on him. In later years, he bought thousands of dollars worth of Israeli bonds in her name. So on Saturday, Feb. 8 at the Orchid Club, Club Shalom will be honoring this friend to Israel and to the Jewish people. It all begins at 6 p.m. with a tribute to Frank, then a delicious Eggplant Parmigian dinner with all the trimmings, followed by dancing, and music by Damian. Oak Run residents and their guests are invited. Members $10 and non-members $12. For ticket information call Shirley Gottfried, 352-216-4655, or Ellen Salenger, 352-861-4484. No tickets will be sold at the door.New England ClubRecently the New England Club had a get together and enjoyed a catered meal from Pavarottis Pizza and Restaurant. We also had our annual auction and it seemed everyone was very happy to donate that unwanted Christmas gift from Aunt Mildred. Everyone seemed to enjoy the laughter and fun of the bidding. On March 20 we will be having a Pajama Party and a Pot luck Breakfast. We encourage everyone to wear your PJs and be entered into a special drawing for a good ole New England prize. We will be entertained by the Timeless Group for a trip down memory lane.TroubadoursThe Troubadours are off to a great start with practice for our upcoming Spring Concert called Celebrate Music. And that is what we will be doing ... celebrating music of the decades, a wide span of beautiful songs that will touch your heart and make you feel wonderful. We have a new piano accompanist and her name is Norma Holecsko. She is doing a great job and we are so pleased to have her with us. PUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Oak Run: Club Shalom presents a tribute to Sinatra PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE13 to our guests at these events. The desserts are particularly plentiful and tasty so plan to take a break from that New Year diet you are on. Free lemonade and iced tea will be available but guests are encouraged to bring their own drinks. Many bring Champagne or wine to enhance the mood of the evening. Our own award winning deejay Richie Becotte will be providing the music for the evening. All of you know Rich and are familiar with the great repertoire of music that he has to choose from. Request your favorite tunes throughout the night and bring back fond memories or make new ones. Rich welcomes any and all requests for special songs especially if they are written on the back of hundred dollar bills. The line dancing classes that were sponsored by Chris and Mario Zacco have paid off as we have a number of new people joining in with the regulars at these dances. Whether its country music and line dancing; big band era tunes and dancing or popular romantic songs to slow dance to; Rich has them all for your enjoyment. Tickets are only $3 each so see Geri and get signed up; then get out your dancing shoes; a nice outfit to wear and show up for this terrific time. You cant beat it for the price of admission.TriviaOn Wednesday, Feb. 19 at 7 p.m., join the Trivia group as they play for bragging rights and small prizes. It only costs a dollar to play and you will be on a team of three or four people. Because there are teams and not individuals, everyone has a chance to win. The subjects this month selected by quiz master Fred OHern are Valentines; General Knowledge; Geography; Entertainment; and Sports. Are there any other subjects that could be included? I think not. Anyway, if you have any knowledge at all of any of these topics, youll be able to help your team on to victory. This is a great way to keep your mind sharp; your sense of humor bright and your winter doldrums at bay. Youll have a great time so come out and share an hour or slightly more with friends and neighbors. We always have fun on Trivia Night.Ladies luncheonDont forget one of the best social events of each month; our ladies luncheon. This is a friendly and informal gathering of any and all of the ladies of Cherrywood to share friendship and fellowship. Our ladies simply bring a favorite dish to pass around; a place setting for themselves; a sense of humor and then they show up at noon on Wednesday, Feb. 12 for a great time. Oh, the dish that you pass around should have some food on it to be shared. Just passing around a dish might be a little boring. There is no formal agenda and you wont be asked to volunteer for anything. You will simply enjoy a delicious meal with our beautiful ladies and enjoy a social hour with friends and neighbors.Mardi Gras PartyKeep Fat Tuesday, March 4 open for our Mardi Gras Party. This is going to be a real hoot so get your tickets early from Geri. Its only $2 each and that includes music by the Jazzy Dixie Landers; door prizes and light snacks. Not only is the band top notch but some of the entertainment being planned is going to be very funny. Mardi Gras is the last big blow out holiday until Easter; well there is St. Pattys Day but other than that, Mari Gras is a chance to let down your hair; dance; laugh; eat and enjoy a terrific time with your friends. Come out and join us.Mystery man contestAs you all know, we have had terrific financial support from a person that has wanted to remain anonymous. For our purposes, we have called him Norm. Norm has paid for a special Valentines Luncheon to be given for the Survivors of our deceased Veterans Club members This time, he has added a little extra into the mix. If anyone can guess who he is; that is, guess his name; they will win $100. Between now and the luncheon, I will be dropping hints along the way in my articles so keep notes and you could win a hundred dollars. Officers of the Veterans Club; Committee Chair persons and employees of Cherrywood Management are not eligible for this contest; only Survivors. Were going to keep it as fair as possible. Once you have the name, just contact Geri and she will put your name into the hat with the others who successfully guess his name for the drawing at the luncheon. Sounds like fun doesnt it? This will make the luncheon even more special for our ladies. Patriot Dog Donations If you or your organization would like to make a donation to the Patriot Dog Fund, please mail your tax deductible check or money order to Cherrywood Veterans Club; 6253 SW 100 Loop; Ocala, Fl. 34476. In the memo portion of the check write the word dog and we will handle the rest. Every penny of the money donated goes directly to the care; feeding and training of the animal. No one in the Patriot Dog organization or Veterans Club receives any compensation of any type. Thank you in advance for your support.Cribbage TournamentMonday was the kickoff for the two week Cribbage Club tourney here at Cherrywood. There are about 15 members who regularly show up on Mondays at 12:30 in the card room for good games and good times. We are adding new members nearly every week to our club so come on out and enjoy being with some really weird but truly fun people. We accept everyone whether you are new to the game or an accomplished player so dont be shy. We have some really patient people to teach novices and some pretty good players to challenge the accomplished ones. We play every Monday.From your reporterMark Twain said about the weather that everyone talks about it but nobody does anything about it; or words to that effect. Well the past couple of weeks Ive heard many people talking about how cold it is but as far as I know; only one group has done anything about it. Comments that have been made to me are things like, Its colder than a mother-in-laws kiss. No offense to the mothers-in-law out there; it was just a comment I heard. Another one was, Its colder than a well diggers This was rather an odd saying to me because I didnt know well diggers used donkeys anymore for one thing. For another, Ive only known one well digger in my long life and I didnt know him nearly as well as the person who made up that expression apparently knew his. Theres a town in Michigan called Hell so when some one told me it was as cold as that town recently; I checked it out on the computer. Hell was a good 20 degrees below our temperature here in Ocala; so we truly werent as cold as, well, that place. One group that doesnt seem to be affected by the weather no matter how cold it gets is our Bocce Ball players. This group of intrepid individuals knows exactly how to handle the chilly weather; rain or shine. Each Saturday night at 7 the Bocce Players and their supporters come to the pool area to spend a couple of hours of great competition or to just sit around and chat with friends. Because they have so much fun and laughter, none of them want to miss out on this Saturday ritual because of inclement weather. For a solution to the cold weather and rain our Bocce players go into the clubhouse and start a warm fire in the fire place. Sitting around on the comfortable sofas and chairs they sip their drinks and share jokes; life stories; experiences and smiles. What better way to do something about the weather than that? Everyone is welcome to come out and join this friendly and lively group. Escape the cold weather and spend your Saturday evenings with a group of people who will be welcoming and glad to see you. On the nice evenings you may want to even play some Bocce Ball. If you have suggestions or comments for the Cherrywood section of the Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I am always happy to hear from you.

We have a new part time resident in Cherrywood. A special guest of Bill Spangenberg, Morgan is a Labrador retriever who, though just a youngster; is developing the skills and abilities to serve a disabled veteran as a professional service dog. Some day he will be a real Patriot Dog but these days, he is learning about people; other dogs; new situations and new experiences. Because Morgan is raised by the caring lady inmates at Lowell Correctional during the week, he has never experienced grass; carpet; furniture; bushes or trees so hes having a great time running in the fenced in back yard at Bills house. Bill is the first Cherrywood resident to respond to our call for volunteers to foster a Patriot Dog over the weekends and assist in their training. In addition to the service dog program, Bill has been a long time member of our Veterans Club and a strong supporter of its many activities and charities. We are proud of both Bill and Morgan for the work they are doing. In the coming months Bill will receive the dog we donated named Al but until that time; he will be an integral part of Morgans preparedness. If you would like to join Bill in this very necessary service, please contact Beverly Carver from the Marion County SPCA. Her phone number is 352-8736787 and she will be more than happy to discuss all the details of the program with you. Remember, you do not need to be a resident of Cherrywood or even a veteran to take part in this project. When you are out and about and you see Morgan and Bill walking down the street; be sure to stop and give Morgan an ear rub and shake Bills hand in gratitude for his willingness to help. Oh and please dont get the two confused; Bill probably wouldnt care much for having his ears rubbed.

Friday, January 24, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, January 24, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Suzie gave a heavy sigh and looked at me. The last thing I remember before waking up in the emergency room was turning to Suzie and saying Please pass the tea bag.Horse senseTraces of horsemeat have been found in a fast-food restaurants tacos. The discovery was made by pure luck when someone noticed that customers who regularly ordered tacos often requested a cube of sugar with them. Most people are unaware of the love that Frank Sinatra had for the Jewish people. His baby sitter was a Jewish lady who must have had a great influence on him. In later years, he bought thousands of dollars worth of Israeli bonds in her name. So on Saturday, Feb. 8 at the Orchid Club, Club Shalom will be honoring this friend to Israel and to the Jewish people. It all begins at 6 p.m. with a tribute to Frank, then a delicious Eggplant Parmigian dinner with all the trimmings, followed by dancing, and music by Damian. Oak Run residents and their guests are invited. Members $10 and non-members $12. For ticket information call Shirley Gottfried, 352-216-4655, or Ellen Salenger, 352-861-4484. No tickets will be sold at the door.New England ClubRecently the New England Club had a get together and enjoyed a catered meal from Pavarottis Pizza and Restaurant. We also had our annual auction and it seemed everyone was very happy to donate that unwanted Christmas gift from Aunt Mildred. Everyone seemed to enjoy the laughter and fun of the bidding. On March 20 we will be having a Pajama Party and a Pot luck Breakfast. We encourage everyone to wear your PJs and be entered into a special drawing for a good ole New England prize. We will be entertained by the Timeless Group for a trip down memory lane.TroubadoursThe Troubadours are off to a great start with practice for our upcoming Spring Concert called Celebrate Music. And that is what we will be doing ... celebrating music of the decades, a wide span of beautiful songs that will touch your heart and make you feel wonderful. We have a new piano accompanist and her name is Norma Holecsko. She is doing a great job and we are so pleased to have her with us. PUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 Oak Run: Club Shalom presents a tribute to Sinatra PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE13 to our guests at these events. The desserts are particularly plentiful and tasty so plan to take a break from that New Year diet you are on. Free lemonade and iced tea will be available but guests are encouraged to bring their own drinks. Many bring Champagne or wine to enhance the mood of the evening. Our own award winning deejay Richie Becotte will be providing the music for the evening. All of you know Rich and are familiar with the great repertoire of music that he has to choose from. Request your favorite tunes throughout the night and bring back fond memories or make new ones. Rich welcomes any and all requests for special songs especially if they are written on the back of hundred dollar bills. The line dancing classes that were sponsored by Chris and Mario Zacco have paid off as we have a number of new people joining in with the regulars at these dances. Whether its country music and line dancing; big band era tunes and dancing or popular romantic songs to slow dance to; Rich has them all for your enjoyment. Tickets are only $3 each so see Geri and get signed up; then get out your dancing shoes; a nice outfit to wear and show up for this terrific time. You cant beat it for the price of admission.TriviaOn Wednesday, Feb. 19 at 7 p.m., join the Trivia group as they play for bragging rights and small prizes. It only costs a dollar to play and you will be on a team of three or four people. Because there are teams and not individuals, everyone has a chance to win. The subjects this month selected by quiz master Fred OHern are Valentines; General Knowledge; Geography; Entertainment; and Sports. Are there any other subjects that could be included? I think not. Anyway, if you have any knowledge at all of any of these topics, youll be able to help your team on to victory. This is a great way to keep your mind sharp; your sense of humor bright and your winter doldrums at bay. Youll have a great time so come out and share an hour or slightly more with friends and neighbors. We always have fun on Trivia Night.Ladies luncheonDont forget one of the best social events of each month; our ladies luncheon. This is a friendly and informal gathering of any and all of the ladies of Cherrywood to share friendship and fellowship. Our ladies simply bring a favorite dish to pass around; a place setting for themselves; a sense of humor and then they show up at noon on Wednesday, Feb. 12 for a great time. Oh, the dish that you pass around should have some food on it to be shared. Just passing around a dish might be a little boring. There is no formal agenda and you wont be asked to volunteer for anything. You will simply enjoy a delicious meal with our beautiful ladies and enjoy a social hour with friends and neighbors.Mardi Gras PartyKeep Fat Tuesday, March 4 open for our Mardi Gras Party. This is going to be a real hoot so get your tickets early from Geri. Its only $2 each and that includes music by the Jazzy Dixie Landers; door prizes and light snacks. Not only is the band top notch but some of the entertainment being planned is going to be very funny. Mardi Gras is the last big blow out holiday until Easter; well there is St. Pattys Day but other than that, Mari Gras is a chance to let down your hair; dance; laugh; eat and enjoy a terrific time with your friends. Come out and join us.Mystery man contestAs you all know, we have had terrific financial support from a person that has wanted to remain anonymous. For our purposes, we have called him Norm. Norm has paid for a special Valentines Luncheon to be given for the Survivors of our deceased Veterans Club members This time, he has added a little extra into the mix. If anyone can guess who he is; that is, guess his name; they will win $100. Between now and the luncheon, I will be dropping hints along the way in my articles so keep notes and you could win a hundred dollars. Officers of the Veterans Club; Committee Chair persons and employees of Cherrywood Management are not eligible for this contest; only Survivors. Were going to keep it as fair as possible. Once you have the name, just contact Geri and she will put your name into the hat with the others who successfully guess his name for the drawing at the luncheon. Sounds like fun doesnt it? This will make the luncheon even more special for our ladies. Patriot Dog Donations If you or your organization would like to make a donation to the Patriot Dog Fund, please mail your tax deductible check or money order to Cherrywood Veterans Club; 6253 SW 100 Loop; Ocala, Fl. 34476. In the memo portion of the check write the word dog and we will handle the rest. Every penny of the money donated goes directly to the care; feeding and training of the animal. No one in the Patriot Dog organization or Veterans Club receives any compensation of any type. Thank you in advance for your support.Cribbage TournamentMonday was the kickoff for the two week Cribbage Club tourney here at Cherrywood. There are about 15 members who regularly show up on Mondays at 12:30 in the card room for good games and good times. We are adding new members nearly every week to our club so come on out and enjoy being with some really weird but truly fun people. We accept everyone whether you are new to the game or an accomplished player so dont be shy. We have some really patient people to teach novices and some pretty good players to challenge the accomplished ones. We play every Monday.From your reporterMark Twain said about the weather that everyone talks about it but nobody does anything about it; or words to that effect. Well the past couple of weeks Ive heard many people talking about how cold it is but as far as I know; only one group has done anything about it. Comments that have been made to me are things like, Its colder than a mother-in-laws kiss. No offense to the mothers-in-law out there; it was just a comment I heard. Another one was, Its colder than a well diggers This was rather an odd saying to me because I didnt know well diggers used donkeys anymore for one thing. For another, Ive only known one well digger in my long life and I didnt know him nearly as well as the person who made up that expression apparently knew his. Theres a town in Michigan called Hell so when some one told me it was as cold as that town recently; I checked it out on the computer. Hell was a good 20 degrees below our temperature here in Ocala; so we truly werent as cold as, well, that place. One group that doesnt seem to be affected by the weather no matter how cold it gets is our Bocce Ball players. This group of intrepid individuals knows exactly how to handle the chilly weather; rain or shine. Each Saturday night at 7 the Bocce Players and their supporters come to the pool area to spend a couple of hours of great competition or to just sit around and chat with friends. Because they have so much fun and laughter, none of them want to miss out on this Saturday ritual because of inclement weather. For a solution to the cold weather and rain our Bocce players go into the clubhouse and start a warm fire in the fire place. Sitting around on the comfortable sofas and chairs they sip their drinks and share jokes; life stories; experiences and smiles. What better way to do something about the weather than that? Everyone is welcome to come out and join this friendly and lively group. Escape the cold weather and spend your Saturday evenings with a group of people who will be welcoming and glad to see you. On the nice evenings you may want to even play some Bocce Ball. If you have suggestions or comments for the Cherrywood section of the Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I am always happy to hear from you.

All this week you should have been enjoying some sugary treats. According to the Internet site, Bizarre, Crazy, Silly Unknown Holidays, Sugar Awareness Week ends Saturday. While enjoying some leftover Christmas candy, I rounded up some sweet stories for you.Sweet lady?At the start of an important trial, a small town attorney called his first witness to the stand. She seemed like a sweet, elderly woman. He approached her and asked, Mrs. Jones, do you know me? She responded, Why, yes, I do know you Mr. Williams. Ive known you since you were a young boy. Youve become a huge disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife; you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You dont have the brains to realize you never will amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do he pointed across the room and asked, Mrs. Williams, do you know the defense attorney? She replied, Why, of course I do. Ive known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He, also, is a real disappointment. Hes lazy, bigoted, never has a nice word to say about anybody, and he drinks like a fish. Hes been divorced five times, and everybody knows that his law practice is one of the shoddiest in the entire state. The judge rapped his gavel, to quiet the tittering among the spectators in the courtroom. Then he called both attorneys to his bench. In a quiet, menacing voice, he warned, If either of you asks her if she knows me, youll be jailed for contempt!Sweet but toughAn extremely sweet variety of peas have been developed that choke out any other plants growing nearby. The dying plants could be heard singing, Peas release me, let me grow! Unlike most boys, Johnny was extremely fond of these new sweet peas. When he was bad, his mother omitted them from his dinner as a punishment. That evening he moaned, Where are the peas? His mother replied, You know what they say, Johnny, no peas for the wicked.GumdropsWhen the wholesale price of sugar doubled, the grocers raised cane. Artificial sugars and, in more recent years, artificial fat have been developed. Now there is artificial spaghetti. Its called Impasta. Cane sugar cant be beet. Theres a special candy made of chocolate and peanut butter specifically designed for playgrounds. Its called Recess Pieces. Oh dear! Ive missed you so much! said the sweet young thing and then she raised the revolver and tried again. Those who eat candy with both hands are ambi-dextrose. In court when he was accused of breaking into a liquor store, he took the fifth. Both sugar and vinegar are preservatives, so it seems to boil down to whether you want to be in a jam or be pickled. The drug dealer added sugar to his marijuana to sweeten the pot. My brother is in the candy business. Is he doing well? So far hes made a mint.Unexpected rewardWhen I saw my friend Jim Monday I noticed his black eye. It was a real shiner. What the heck happened to you? Were you mugged? I asked. Worse Jim said painfully. Suzie and I went to that bed and breakfast in Williston this weekend. We met Liz and Kevin there. Well? How did you get that black eye and those bruises on your body and arms? Well, Sunday morning we were seated at the table with Liz and Kevin and a couple on their honeymoon. We were all having breakfast together. That honeymoon couple looked at each other with love in their eyes, when he turned to his new bride and asked, Would you please pass the sugar, sugar. We all smiled and Suzie had that look, you know the isnt that romantic look women get. Then Kevin said to Liz, please pass the honey, honey.Friday, January 24, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, January 24, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Sugar in the morning, sugar in the evening, sugar at suppertime Pun Alley Dick Frank PLEASESEEPUN, PAGE12 Although few of us work for a salary during retirement, there are still things that require our attention that no one else can handle. Too often we avoid the task as long as possible spending more time dreading it than actually completing it. Instead of procrastinating, the solution is just to get it done as soon as possible. Then there is just one less item to cross off the to do list. Anticipation sometimes is worse than the execution. The relief of the job finally done brings with it pleasure and a great sense of accomplishment.Master the PossibilitiesMaster the Possibilities concludes a very successful January next week. They would like to recommend some unique programs you may have missed. On Monday, Jan. 27 join legendary Metropolitan Opera baritone Sherrill Milnes in person and on film with many of his friends. Carol Burnett, Tony Randall, Burt Lancaster, Placido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti and others will be presented on video covering his vast 40year career on stage and on film. Now retired from the operatic stage, Milnes is a mentor to young singers. This will be an afternoon of fun stories and great music. This is free and open to all. The Sheriffs Citizens Academy will begin on Thursday (Jan. 30) morning. This has been a very interesting series and it is free. Also, Thursday evening join local Law enforcement professionals for Marion County Major Crimes and Cold Cases.

The Lutheran Men in Mission (LMM) have a monthly breakfast meeting in Fellowship Hall in which one of them makes the pancakes (I presume) since it has not been my experience. They are very active throughout the year planning trips to special shows, or a golf trip, going on a retreat for spiritual renewal, ringing the bells for the Salvation Army at Christmas time and assisting a local florist to deliver flowers on Mothers Day. Each month they have committed to cleaning up the SW 95th Street Road, between SW 60th Street and SR 200. Needless to say when there is heavy work to do around the church, like cleaning up the grounds, moving the donated wares for the annual yard sale, the LMM will be there to help. One enjoyable joint men and womens activity is Pairs and Spares. This is a group, usually of eight people, who meet monthly in someones home or a restaurant and have dinner. It is just a time to get-together and become more acquainted with fellow parishioners. For more information about the activities at Joy contact Pastor Ed Holloway at 352-854-4509 ext. 223, or Fran Johnson at 352-854-4509 ext. 221 or go online at www.joyocala.org.

Friday, January 24, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, January 24, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Some people have what they call their bucket list. I am not too sure what this is all about but it seems to me it is a list of things people would like to do before they kick the bucket. Me, I do not plan to kick any bucket as long as I am alive. I have other targets for my kicking. I understand that the general concept is there are things people would like to do before they die and I suppose everyone has their own list. But I have too many things on my to-do-list from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. I affectionately refer to this as the kick my butt list. As long as I have been married, and it has been longer than I can remember, you would think I would have come to grips with this dynamic in the marriage relationship. To a certain extent, I have. I do certain things without asking any questions or even complaining, at least out loud. What I say under my breath is between me and myself. Sometimes we, me and myself, get into significant arguments. The problem is, I never know if me is winning or myself? In one case, there was a tie, but I cannot recall what it was about. Lately, I have come up with a novel tactic in dealing with this scenario. It came to me quite by accident. You know how it is, you think of something to say, but usually the day after you needed to say it. I have great comebacks to everything I hear except the fact that the comebacks are usually a day late and a phrase too short. I hate it when I am driving down and think of what I should have said. I have a whole list of what I should have said to certain people but it is too late and there is nothing I can do about it. Recently I hit the target. (I just hope my identity has not been hacked!) It was one day last week when my wife looked at me and said in one of those tones, Have you taken out the garbage? She is always surprising me with questions related to things she has asked me to do. My problem is my attention span is about as long as my memory. Personally, I think she takes advantage of me in this area. I looked at her with one of my infamous dummified faces. She responded, You did not take out the garbage, did you? You never do what I ask you to do. Without thinking, and I mean it quite literally, I quipped, Well, Ive never robbed a bank... yet! Where that came from, I will never know. To my recollection, I have never even thought about robbing a bank. I do not know where I would start in the first place. With an astonished look my wife responded, What bank have you been thinking of robbing? It worked beautifully. I did not think it would work as well as it did because I did not put any forethought into this. However, it did get her off the topic at hand. For the next several moments, all she could talk about was me robbing a bank and the horrific trouble we would be in if caught. Any individual successful in life needs to be able to put forth the proper words. For me, I found the right words. Coming in the door the other day I was greeted with, Did you get the quart of milk I asked you to get when you left this morning? Without thinking, which is the beauty of this strategy, I responded by saying, No, and I havent robbed a bank yet, either. Only one problem with this kind of victory. Who can I brag to about it? I cannot tell my wife because then I could not use it anymore. It is awful to have something that you cannot share with your significant other. I am not sure how long I can keep this secret. The only thing I can do at this point is to smile. And boy, have I been smiling lately. No matter what she throws my way, I respond by smiling and saying, And I havent robbed a bank yet, either. Is it possible to have too much fun? I mean, as a husband? All my life I have tried to get the upper hand and all my life I have not succeeded only to shake hands with myself. Until now, that is. How long it will last is anybodys guess. Im just not guessing at this point. Sometimes people get depressed about all the things they have done in life. Some are pretty bad things. Occasionally, it is good to think about all the things you have not done. I may not be Having fun as a husband: Ive never robbed a bank, yet Out to Pastor Rev.

Friday, January 24, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, January 24, 2014 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenPresident Obama has some nerve. He opened his speech on NSA spying by likening his surveillance regime to Paul Revere and the Sons of Liberty. How insulting! They were helping people resist government tyranny, and the British spied on them to put down the coming rebellion. In sizing up Obamas reforms of the indiscriminate gathering of data on every American, remember this: Politicians will do everything they can get away with in pursuit of their own agenda. To them, liberty and privacy are unimportant, things to be gotten around with the minimum of public attention. Should the public get wind of some untoward thing the politicians are up to as it did, thanks to Edward Snowden they will put on a public-relations show to lull the people back to sleep, enabling the state once again to go about its unsavory business unobserved. That is whats happening here. As Glenn Greenwald aptly put it, Obamas defining value to the permanent power factions that run Washington is that he prettifies the ugly; he drapes the banner of change over systematic status quo perpetuation; he makes Americans feel better about policies they find repellent without the need to change any of them in meaningful ways. Hes not an agent of change but the soothing branding packaging for it. Thus, the appropriate attitude toward the so-called reforms is deep skepticism. You want evidence? Obama expressed confidence in the integrity of those who lead our intelligence community. He has apparently forgotten that the director of national intelligence, James Clapper, told a boldfaced lie to a Senate committee when he said No, sir to this question from Sen. Ron Wyden: Does the [NSA] collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans? (Clapper later explained that this was the least untruthful answer he could give.) Obamas spokesman said the president certainly believes that Director Clapper has been straight and direct in the answers hes given. Obamas own veracity must also be questioned. In his speech he said that when he was a senator he was critical of the George W. Bush administrations warrantless eavesdropping. But if thats true, why did he vote for the 2008 FISA law, which, as Greenwald notes, legalized the bulk of the once-illegal Bush program? To the extent Obama has become more favorable to surveillance since the Bush years its apparently because, as a former aide told the New York Times, he trusts himself to use these powers more than he did the Bush administration. In light of this flagrant disregard for the truth and willingness to bamboozle the people, why should anyone take Obamas reforms seriously? He promises mostly executivebranch safeguards created by Clapper and Attorney General Eric Holder but in the end, this will be little more than window dressing to regain public trust. There are always emergency escape clauses. To be sure, Obama is clever. He says, Given the unique power of the state, it is not enough for leaders to say: Trust us, we wont abuse the data we collect. For history has too many examples when that trust has been breached. Our system of government is built on the premise that our liberty cannot depend on the good intentions of those in power; it depends on the law to constrain those in power. But the law cant constrain those in power, because the law is always interpreted and enforced or not enforced by those very people in power. Ultimately, government officials define their own powers. Checks and balances mean that one part of the state monitors another part. Its hard to muster confidence in such a weak safeguard. Obama says we need surveillance to protect us from terrorists. But we could be safe without having our freedoms trampled if the government would stop committing and enabling oppression in foreign countries, thus creating the desire for revenge against Americans. Freedom and security require no trade-off, because genuine freedom includes security against government snooping. Obama asks for trust, but we have too much experience to grant him his wish. Yet even if government officials had pure motives, they still should not be trusted with the power to spy.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). When I want to watch television, I sit down and hit my remote and hope that my cable is working. The stations come in clear and bright on my TV, which is HD but small. I havent used an antenna for so many years, I forgot that there are still people who use one of the new digital antennae to get overthe-air signals. For those people, this story that circulated last week was very meaningful. There is a company called Aereo, which you can search for on the Internet. It operates only in major cities, but is looking to expand. What Aereo does is it picks up over-the-air signals for regular broadcast stations, then transmits those signals to small antennae hooked up to peoples computers, allowing them to get a live stream on the Internet of the standard broadcast networks and their affiliates. The stations and networks dont like that. They get paid a rights fee by cable and satellite companies so the company is authorized to pick up the signal and rebroadcast it. Its good money for the stations. They feel threatened by Aereo, which pays no rights fees, plucking the signals out of the air. It has been a long held principle that the airwaves belong to the public, and when stations apply for a license, they pledge to serve the public interest. That appears to be what Aereo is counting on. The case has now reached the U.S. Supreme Court, which recently decided to take up the fight. The ruling could have major implications. Some networks, including Fox, have already hinted that if the court rules in favor of Aereos rights to pull in the signals, the network will stop broadcasting over the air. In other words, youll have to have a cable or satellite system to watch regular over-theair television, the type that many of us were brought up with. The first part of the death knell of broadcast stations came with the government edict that all had to broadcast in digital format, something which made the old rabbit ear antennae obsolete If you wanted the stations over the air, then you had to get a new digital antenna. Now comes the proverbial nail in the coffin, and it rests in the hands of the nine justices in Washington. If you get your TV over cable or satellite, you probably wouldnt notice any difference. But for those who cant afford those services, free television could become a thing of the past. Stay tuned, but make sure youre tuned in on cable.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Do not use any other word processing programs. Once again, we review a couple of weeks with some stories that make no sense, whether accidental mistakes that put people in jeopardy or violence against others. The first mistake occurred when a Southwest Airlines jet headed from Chicago to Branson, Missouri, missed the Branson airport by seven miles. The plane landed at an airport whose runway was only half the size of Bransons, and as a result the pilot had to jam on the brakes just 500 feet short of an embankment that would have sent the plane tumbling onto a highway. People say that it happens more than we realize, but thats of little comfort. In this day and age of computer navigation, missing a target by seven miles doesnt seem possible. The next mistake took place in Cincinnati, but the fault is clearly evident. A drunk man had an argument with his wife, and in the house fired a gun into the air. The bullet went into the lung of his daughter, who was upstairs, and killed her. Hes facing all sorts of felony charges. Then there were the cases of ridiculous violence. In Wesley Chapel, about 50 or so miles south of here, a former Tampa policeman tried to get a man in front of him to stop texting in a movie theater. The man refused, they got into an argument, the man threw popcorn at the former Tampa officer, who then drew a gun and shot the man, killing him and wounding his wife. In Elkhart, Ind., a man went into a supermarket and started shooting, killing two people before being killed by Elkhart police. Quick response by the police is credited with saving lives. In New Mexico, a 12-year-old walked into his middle school gym and fired three shotgun blasts, hitting two students. He was captured and taken into custody. In Valparaiso, Indiana, a man who had been cut off on the Interstate chased the pickup truck in front of him and fired a shot through the window. The driver of the pickup was struck, but was able to keep control. The shooter was not apprehended. All of this happened within two weeks. Get the picture? There are many people out of control in this country, and things dont appear to be getting better. If you feel angry about something, take your time and calm down. Nothing good comes from uncontrolled anger. Whats the solution? Who knows? But whats important to you is to be alert, no matter where you go, so you can take evasive action when something appears to be going wrong. Always watch out for the other guy. Football game isnt SuperHave you ever paid attention to the disclaimer on the Super Bowl. This product is the property of the National Football League, and any use of the descriptions and accounts of this game, such as charging admission for its showing, without the written consent of the NFL is prohibited. That is something that is particularly enforced for the Super Bowl. So we warn our writers not to call it a Super Bowl Party if youre charging admission, even if its only a couple of bucks. Youre violating a trademark if you do, and the NFL has spies everywhere. Trademark rules can be complicated, but basically, if it starts with capital letters, dont advertise that youre charging admission. That way you wont get one of those nasty letters the NFL sends out.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Friday, January 24, 2014 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, January 24, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Taking some time out of your busy social life could be just what you need to help you focus on putting those finishing touches on plans for a career change. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A misunderstanding about a colleagues suggestions could create a delay in moving on with your proposal. But by weeks end, all the confusing points should finally be cleared up. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might feel overwhelmed by all the tasks you suddenly have to take care of. But just say the magic word help! and youll soon find others rushing to offer much-needed assistance. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Finishing a current project ahead of schedule leaves you free to deal with other upcoming situations, including a possible workplace change, as well as a demanding personal matter. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Turn that fine-tuned feline sensitivity radar up to high to help uncover any facts that could influence a decision you might be preparing to make. Devote the weekend to family activities. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A state of confusion is soon cleared up with explanations from the responsible parties. Dont waste time chastising anyone. Instead, move forward with your plans. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might feel obligated to help work out a dispute between family members. But this is one of those times when you should step aside and let them work out their problems on their own. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your ability to resolve an onthe-job problem without leaving too many ruffled feathers earns you kudos from coworkers. You also impress major decision-makers at your workplace. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Newly made and longheld friendships merge well, with possibly one exception. Take time to listen to the dissenters explanations. You could learn something. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Be prepared to be flexible about your travel plans. Although you dont have to take them, at least consider suggestions from the experts in the travel business. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A problem with a financial transaction could lead to more problems later on unless you resolve it immediately. Get all the proof you need to support your position. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Daydreaming makes it difficult to stay focused on what you need to do. But reality sets in by midweek, and you manage to get everything done in time for a relaxing weekend. Gospel Musics leading fan and trade publication. Karen, Susan and Jeff have also received many awards from other magazine publications and Internet publications. Over the past four years, New River has had five consecutive #1 songs in Southern Gospel Music. In addition, their current album, Reach Out, has had two consecutive #1 songs for On the Banks of the Promised Land and Mighty Big God. With appearances on such prestigious stages as The Grand Ole Opry, The Gaither Homecoming concerts, Opryland Theme Park, Dollywood and Six Flags Over Georgia, New River has firmly established their place at the forefront of Southern Gospel Music. Over the past decade, they have been featured on many television networks, with appearances on TBNs Praise The Lord, the Grand Ole Opry Live and the popular Gaither Gospel video Series. The group has enjoyed many honors and accolades. They have received numerous industry and fan award nominations. A few of their other previous popular hits include: Hold Me While I Cry, Just One Touch, I Wanna Know, God Likes To Work, Daddys Home, When Jesus Passes By, God Still Answers Prayer, and Christian In The House. Additionally, the groups Number One hit, Four Days Late, was also named Song of the Year by readers of The Singing New Magazine in 2001 and the SGMA Awards and continues to be a favorite among audiences. Each song pulls at a different heartstring, yet the message of hope is always present. Thats what life in Christ is all about. As a result of various circumstances each member has faced over the past years, were at a point in our lives where we realize that anything we achieve or accomplish is all because of Christ. It is an honor to serve Him. New River sets a new standard for musical perfection with rich vocal harmony that is shaded with the sophistication of Southern Gospel, country and progressive musical sounds. New River today stands not only as a talented and successful recording artist, but more importantly, effective messengers presenting the Gospel, through Jesus Christ.

The objective of the class was to demonstrate that exercise can be functional and fun. The exercises that support the function of daily living (ADLs) are important to preserve independence as we age. Functional Fitness exercises help in real life. The exercises should be done regularly but should be age related. Strength and speed of motion equals power. We lose that with age. We need muscle strength, endurance, dexterity, and pain free range of motion. The activities of daily living are chair rising, stair climbing, gait when standing and walking, etc. Fit to function exercises help with this. It integrates strength, mechanics, and function. Some of the exercises are pushing and pulling, bending and extending, and stabilizing the core. It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver Mohandas Gandhi Posture Proud Caring for our Carriage Jessica Pinkowski gave this class at Classroom 1 in MTP Learning Center. Some of the consequences of not holding our carriage properly are that we dont walk, bend, lift, reach or balance as well. We can change the way we age by staying active. Functional fitness improves posture with practice. While sitting on a chair with feet flat on the floor, the four points of posture are: sit up, lift your chest, retract shoulders, and brace core. The benefits are better brain function, kinetic chain organ function, better breath control, balance center of gravity, line of gravity, less joint stress.June Roberta can be reached at jroberta@cfl.rr.com.

Sean Peete addressed the commissioners during the public access portion of the meeting. Other speakers from his group yielded their time to Peete so he could speak more than the allotted two minutes. Peete wanted the commissioners to provide space in the courthouse, including three rooms with secure doors, chairs for a secretary, administrators and 25 grand jurors, and a budget of $1.5 million, all this month. The countys budget is finalized in the fall. Peete started with reference to the Magna Carta, a document in England in the year 1215 forced by the people onto King John. He said commissioners would be guilty of dereliction of duty and that was a criminal act if they did not grant his requests. Peete said the people were the supreme rulers and had the right to appoint a grand jury, which would not include any public servants. Take notice, no man is above the law, he told commissioners. He had threatened to charge commissioners with obstruction of justice. County Attorney Guy Minter pointed out that grand juries can only be appointed by legal officials, that there was nothing that allowed people to appoint their own grand jury. Commissioner Kathy Bryant made no attempt to hide her anger as she addressed the group after Peete finished, criticizing the men for walking in here and demand over $2 million for something the county is already doing. Although the request was for $1.5 million, and this was pointed out to her, she said that with added costs in addition to the budget request it would come to more than $2 million. But the toughest reaction came from Court Clerk David Ellspermann who emphatically said, At no point will this clerk provide them space, and he urged commissioners not to take action. Ellspermann also said he would refer the comments to Brad King, state attorney. He was referring to a state law, 843.0855, which in part says: A person who simulates legal process, including, but not limited to, actions affecting title to real estate or personal property, indictments, subpoenas, warrants, injunctions, liens, orders, judgments, or any legal documents or proceedings, knowing or having reason to know the contents of any such documents or proceedings or the basis for any action to be fraudulent, commits a felony of the third degree 28~ Friday, January 24, 2014 www.smcitizen.com County rejects call for common law space PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKMartin Luther King Jr. paradeThousands of marchers filled Silver Springs Boulevard on Monday to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the holiday in his honor.
