Working with local school districts, United Ways Womens Leadership Councils, Early Learning Coalitions, Childrens Services Councils and others, this initiative focuses on matching volunteers with students from pre-kindergarten to third grade. Local United Ways are tasked with partnering with their local school system, using a common state-wide pre and post assessment, tracking volunteer hours and providing books for children to take home. Implementation of the program is left to the discretion of each community. In Marion County, the ReadingPals program is being utilized within the 15 academy programs in Title 1 kindergarten classes throughout the county as a complement to what the school district is already providing. Reading scores of struggling kindergarteners in the academy programs throughout Marion County have seen an increase as well. In the fall of 2012, the overall kindergarten probability of reading success score was 72; in the academy schools it was a 62. In the spring when the students were tested again, the fall score for the overall district was an 85 while the score for the academy students was an 87.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 Choral work to be presentedThe Ocala Symphony Orchestra (OSO) brings one of the most popular and well-recognized choral works of the 21st Century, Carl Orffs Carmina Burana, to Ocala in a spectacular collaboration with Marion County Center for the Arts (MCCA) Choir Feb. 14-16 at West Port High School. The MCCA Choir will accompany the OSOs full orchestra and community choir to perform this lauded cantata, the collaboration of which will provide these talented students with the opportunity to gain real-life experience in a professional music environment. Exposing Marion County youth to an expanded offering of music is one of the OSOs core community outreach goals of the Youth Outreach program. The MCCA choral program at West Port High School, under the direction of Ms. Nancy Atkinson, studies many genres of music including classical, show tunes and jazz. WPHS began in 2001 and serves as the magnet school for visual and performing fine arts in order to prepare artistically gifted and talented students from the Marion County area for post-secondary arts education and/or employment in the arts. With student enrollment of over 470 students from all parts of Marion County, the magnet has already impacted the community by earning high awards in all areas of the visual and performing arts. The OSOs charismatic music director, Maestro Matthew Wardell, states the cinematic flare of Carmina Burana is an ideal production to collaborate with WPHS. Carmina Burana has been the most requested composition by our patrons. By collaborating with the MCCA choir, the intensity of this masterpiece can be brought whole-heartedly to Marion County. Its exciting. Its loud. Its moving; and in fact, most audiences who arent familiar with classical music will recognize O Fortuna, the works opening and closing movement, as it is used in many movies and television commercials internationally, stated Wardell. The concerts will be held on Friday, Feb. 14 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 15 at 3 p.m. in the state of the art facility at West Port High School, 3722 SW 80th Ave. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by visiting www.ocalasymphony.com or by calling 352-3511606. 000H4PG There really is a difference in salons .

Friday, January 31, 2014 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, January 31, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Seeing the silly side of some ridiculous situations helps give the Lamb a new perspective on how to handle them. Iimportant contacts can be made this weekend. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Try to complete your outstanding tasks by midweek. This leaves you free to take advantage of new possibilities both professional and personal opening by weeks end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) With both your creative side and your energy levels rising this week, you should be able to tackle that too-longneglected project again. A family member might have important news. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) An explanation you requested seems to be more confusing than enlightening. You should insist on clarifications now, rather than deal with problems that might arise later. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Your energy levels might be ebbing a bit. But thats no excuse for taking catnaps when you could be working on unfinished tasks. Therell be time to relax by weeks end. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Its a good time to get those ideas out of your head and into a readable format if you hope to have them turned into something doable. A good friend is ready with worthwhile advice. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Careful, you might be stepping into dangerous territory if you decide to exaggerate the facts too much. Remember: The truth speaks for itself and needs no embellishment. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Although your workplace successes have earned you many admirers, there are some colleagues who are not among them. Be careful how you proceed with your new project. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might have to go into great detail to explain why youre currently reluctant to make changes to an already prepared plan. Be sure you have all the facts to back yourself up. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Travel plans might still be uncertain. But instead of getting upset about the delay, open yourself up to other possibilities, and begin checking out some alternative destinations. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Changing conditions might require you to alter some of your plans. While you might be agreeable to this, be prepared with explanations for those who do not want changes made. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Although you might have to deal with some detractors who arent too kind in their critiques, you gain points when youre willing to stand up and defend your work. Tuesday, Feb. 18 Cancer ed ucation, s upport groupA new education and support group for cancer patients, family and friends will meet on Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 1:30 p.m. in the West Marion Medical Plaza Conference Room, located at 4600 SW 46th Court in Ocala.

Cayce was brought up in the Catholic Church and, therefore, did not believe in reincarnation. One time he was in a trance and went back to one of his previous lives. Each year, he read the bible from beginning to end and then started all over again the next year. He spent a lot of time trying to find any mention of reincarnation in it. Finally, he found a bit of information that it was so. Then he was able to accept this idea. Ian Stevensons book, The Reluctant Messenger was suggested reading. Its about scientific proof of reincarnation. A homework assignment was given that could be done or not. Each night before bed, Pat suggested the class should write three things that had value for each person that day. Try to do it for at least a week but longer would be better.

Friday, January 31, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, January 31, 2014 BY BRYAN GOLDEN Special to the Citizen The greatest danger to American freedom is a government that ignores the Constitution Thomas JeffersonThroughout history, tyrants have repeatedly used the same devious tactics to suppress freedom. The march of tyranny advances along a road paved with lies and deceit. Truth and transparency are the enemies of tyrants. In order to succeed, tyrants must squelch the natural yearning for freedom and replace it with a struggle for basic survival driven by fear. Tyrants view liberty and freedom as a threat to their power. They are never upfront about their plans to subjugate the people. If they were, there would be an uprising of opposition. Instead, tyrants use lies and deception to appear benevolent, caring, and concerned about the people. At the same time, tyrants ardently work behind the scenes to accomplish the exact opposite of that which they are promising. Tyrants always hide their true intentions of subjugation and control. Tyrants understand no one wants what is being forced on them. Tyrants have no interest in, and are intolerant of free speech. Instead, they systematically silence any opposition. Tyrants rely on iron fisted control to advance their sinister agenda. Privacy is targeted for elimination. Tyrants want to monitor everyones behavior and communications. Tyrants use fear to acquire and maintain power. They want control over every aspect of peoples lives. Fear is a tool leveraged to keep people in line. Tyrants abuse their power to punish those who defy them. They single out dissident individuals so as to make examples out of them. Tyrants want people to be afraid of speaking or acting in opposition. Tyrants divide in order to conquer. They pit various segments of society against each other based on economic status, skin color, gender, age, religion, values, or race. Tyrants recognize that its easier to control people when they are fighting with each other rather than uniting against oppression. Tyrants enrich themselves and their supporters financially. They maintain lavish lifestyles by spending other peoples money. Confiscation from the hard work of others is their source of wealth. Tyrants also take from some groups and give to others. A common strategy is to seize from those willing to work in order to give to those who are not. This generates added animosity between various segments of society and it builds total dependence on the tyrant for basic needs. Tyrants do not believe they are constrained by existing laws. They consider themselves above the law and entitled to act unilaterally without the necessity of seeking any consent. When their dictatorial actions are allowed to stand unchallenged, they are emboldened to further push the limits of their lawless behavior. Eventually, they usurp enough power to forcibly stamp out any opposition. Tyrants require apathy and complacency to progress. Through cunning deception, tyrants actually manage to get their targeted victims to support their efforts. Then their victims are shocked to find that they too are suffering under the tyrants crushing force. Tyrants only care about themselves and advancing their destructive agenda. Any claims to the contrary are devious lies. Tyrants intentionally destroy everything good and worthwhile in their path. They leave a shattered wasteland of endless suffering and misery. Tyrants persist until stopped by the people standing up and saying NO MORE! A society decides by their action or inaction whether they chose Freedom or Tyranny.Bryan Golden is the author of Dare to Live Without Limits. Contact him at Bryan@columnist.com or visit www.DareToLiveWithoutLimits.com. Coming up this weekend is the not-so-Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks, two teams that, as far as many on the East Coast know, barely exist. Everyone can name the quarterbacks of both teams, and the defensive back whose rant made headlines is now well known. But Im not sure everyone can name the coach of the Broncos. You know, thats the guy who, along with pompous John Elway, started Tim Tebow when the team was 14, just to let him fail so they could get rid of him, and Tebow won the division title and beat the Steelers in a playoff game. Talk about the best laid plans, etc. That didnt help Tebows career, though. They were determined to lose him, and they did and brought in Peyton Manning. Manning had a great year, but Im so sick of hearing about him for these two weeks that Ive sworn off sports talk shows. I will tune in the game Sunday at 6:29 (well, maybe a little earlier to see if someone is going to botch the National Anthem and to see if theyre playing in a blizzard). Ill probably record the game too. Most people record a game so they can skip the commercials, but Im looking forward to the commercials almost as much as the game. I mentioned the blizzard, and Im rooting for a polar vortex to settle in on New Jersey on Sunday. Scheduling a game in northern New Jersey in early February has to be one of the silliest moves in the history of the NFL. I know, I was brought up in northern New Jersey, in the same county as MetLife Stadium. Ive dug my car out from many a polar vortex or whatever, in those days we called them snowstorms. So here we go with the annual spectacle called the Super Bowl. I think Ill root for the Seahawks, just so I can see Erin Andrews completely baffled by a post-game rant by some player no one cares about. I hope the halftime show is entertaining, as it used to be, although lately its become a great time to go to the refrigerator and do whatever else you need to do at the break. And Ill laugh at the obligatory camera shots of the huddled masses trying to stay warm. By the way, that Denver coachs name is John Fox, and Im sure hell be mentioned several times during the broadcast. After all, you know which network is telecasting the game.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

There are flu shots still available, according to experts, despite some erroneous reports of shortages. Its not too late to get a shot to protect yourself against the flu, particularly against the aggressive H1N1 version that is making the rounds. There used to be several myths about getting the flu from a shot, but in recent years almost all of those have been disproven. The flu can be a deadly disease. As of Monday, five people in Central Florida have died from the flu, and no one knows if other deaths have been accurately reported. Dont take a chance with you familys health, or with your childrens health get that flu shot as soon as possible. One of the interesting sidelights is that there is some research group offering people $3,000 to be inoculated with the flu so they can be studied, to better help treatment of the disease. To find out more, just go online and search for flu $3,000 and you should get the information. Someone asked us if we would take $3,000 to be given the flu in a shot. We said, Sure. It will help pay for the funeral. Take precautions against the flu. Get that flu shot, even if it seems to be a little late. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Its not too late to get a flu shot Not-so-Super Bowl is this Sunday Understanding the relentless march of tyranny READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor sion. The Chief Justice basically re-wrote the law to make it constitutional. So how do we make federal judges accountable? Not by impeachment; in our entire history only about 12 federal judges have been impeached. Look at California, where appointed judges are subject to voter recall. In 1986, its citizens recalled their Chief Justice and two others because they were anti-death penalty zealots who always voted to overturn death sentences. Late in his life, Thomas Jefferson wrote two essays denouncing the lack of accountability in the Supreme Court. We should do whatever it takes, even amending the Constitution, to remedy this. Al Shumard Oak Run LETTERS TO THE EDITOR AccountabilityIn most jobs, there is accountability. If we dont satisfy our employers and/or customers, there are usually bad consequences. Elected officials periodically face the voters. I once had a 14-term Congressman who was defeated in 2010 because he voted for cap-and-trade (not popular in coal country). The biggest exception is the U.S. Supreme Court. The Constitution gives them lifetime appointments based on good behavior. They are accountable to no one. For example, Justice Sotomayor swore, during her confirmation hearing, that shed uphold the Second Amendment. Then she went against it in McDonald vs. City of Chicago. Because there is no accountability, we have received some atrocious decisions, such as: 1. Dred Scott (1857). A slave had been taken to live in a free state by his owner but still could not be free. 2. Plessey v. Ferguson (1896). Gave us the infamous separate but equal doctrine in public accommodations. 3. Wickard v. Filburn (1942). Upheld a fine against a farmer who exceeded his government-mandated wheat production quota, even though the excess had been consumed on his own farm. 4. Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton (1973). By nullifying all 50 states abortion prohibitions and restrictions, they ruled that all 50 states were violating the Constitution. 5. Kelo v. City of New London (2005). Allowed a city to condemn property, not for a normal public use like a road or hospital, but to erect a commercial building that would pay more taxes. 6.

to thinking, after all, what else can you do when everything is frozen? With all the advancements in science and technology, why is it we cannot control the weather? Something as simple as the weather and nobody seems to be able to control it. Politicians will get up and spout off at how they are going to change things and control things and improve things. Well, Mr. Politician, why dont you begin with the weather? Change the weather for a change. Why cant these big shots control the weather? They spend a lot of time (and our money) trying to control us. They now want to tell us what we can eat and cannot eat and how much soda we can drink at any one time. They tell us how much of our money we need to send back to the government so they can raise their salaries and increase their benefits. It seems quite a paradox that when our country is going through hard times and people who pay the taxes have to tighten their belts that it is time for politicians to vote on a raise in their salary. For once, I would like to see these political big shots vote on decreasing their salary and standing alongside the American people. The danger of that is, it would be such a shock to the American people that people would be dropping dead left and right. So why cant these people control the weather? Why cant they pass a law regulating the temperature? They have a law regulating everything else. Why not the temperature? Why not the weather? I am for having some of these politicians put together one of their infamous subcommittees, sit down with Mother Nature and negotiate something that will make everybody happy, like warm weather. I would like to see some of my tax dollars go for something that would benefit everybody instead of some party at some insignificant political convention. Personally, I think Mother Nature would be easy to work with under such circumstances as we have today. Every mother has a nurturing side and I believe there is no exception here with good old Mother Nature. Maybe she does not know how inconvenient this cold weather has been for us. I think she would be willing to negotiate a long these lines. I would like to select the politicians to be on this committee myself. I have my own list and would be happy to set it up. The reason is, I know that when one of those politicians throws his chest out and begins one of those mind-numbing speeches, and you know they will, they always do, it will irritate Mother Nature. Boy, would I love to see her light into one of them. Nothing is more awesome than the fury of Mother Nature. Besides, nothing is more idiotic than men or women, big in their own eyes, pontificating on things they cannot control as if they had any say in it. I think if you cannot control something as commonplace as the weather you had better find out who can and align yourself up with that person. The Bible tells us exactly who that is. The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet (Nahum 1:3). I do not have to deal with Mother Nature, who incidentally does not exist; I deal with God who controls all things and I am happy to have him control my life as well.Rev. James L.

I do not often make public confessions, but confession is good for the soul. My confession, however, has nothing whatsoever to do with my soul. Simply put, I am cold to the bone! I guess I have been colder but I am suffering from brain freeze right now I was hoping all that chatter about global warming was somewhere in the neighborhood of being true. If so, nobody happened to send the memo to Mother Nature. With the sophistication of our communication technology today, I am not sure how this memo failed to get to her. Of course, they could have sent the message with one of those infamous government computers. We all know how reliable they are. Another thought along this line is that maybe Mother Nature got the memo all right, but, like all good mothers do, ignored it and went about her own business. After all, mothers really do know best even when it does not seem so at the time. However, I am cold and need some encouragement or at least some warm thoughts along this line. The warmest thought I have had recently has been that I have relatives in colder areas then I am. I must confess it does make me feel a little better, just not that much warmer. Where I live we dont have that cold stuff that piles up on the ground like they do up north keeping you from getting to where you want to go. Whoever was singing, Im Dreaming of a White Christmas, please stop singing, Christmas is over. Start dreaming about something a little warmer than all of that white stuff, like a Green Easter.

James Snyder THE LIGHT BETWEEN THE OCEANS By M. L. Stedman Australian novelist Stedman opens her book Light Between the Oceans with a situation so dramatic that the reader is hooked immediately. A lighthouse keeper and his wife, a childless couple living in isolation on beautiful Janus Rock, come upon a drifting boat in which the two occupants are a dead man and a lovely baby girl wrapped in a womans blue cashmere sweater. Tom Sherbourne is a World War I veteran who, having witnessed so much violence, treasures the peace and quiet of Janus Rock. His young wife, however, has suffered several miscarriages and one still birth, that of a baby girl whose grave she lovingly attends. When Tom tries to act responsibly by alerting authorities, his wife Isabel, whos instantly bonded with the baby, talks him out of it, arguing that nothing can help the deceased, and the baby was destined to be an orphan in a cold institution. Here we see Toms mind at work, his understanding of his wifes motherly instincts juxtaposed with his need to do whats right. Ultimately, he conspires with Isabel to break the law, feeling in his heart that there will be consequences for their action. They name her Lucy and she is the joy of their lives. Still, Tom is haunted by the specter of a woman somewhere grieving for her lost loved ones. His wife harbors no such misgivings prompting Tom to wonder again and again at the hidden recesses of Isabels mindthe spaces where she managed to bury the turmoil his own mind couldnt escape. Toms meticulous attention to the lighthouse keeps him going. Every surface in the light room gleamed; the prisms sparkled and the beam shone unhindered by even a speck of dust. But at night while his wife and child slept Tom studied the rotation of the beam and thought bitterly that the dip of the light meant the island itself was always left in darkness. A lighthouse is for others; powerless to illuminate the space closest to it. Unfortunately, after a stunning beginning Stedman seems to lose her pace. The story stalls while we wait for the inevitablethat the truth will come out. This is a good story that runs out of steam but leaves the reader with wonderful images of the stark landscape of Janus Rock. Good story that runs out of steam Bookmark Pat Wellington Retirees ought to start thinking like the young, very sick boy, Mattie Stepanek. He wrote poems which he called Heartsongs. Although he died at the age of 14, he did a lot of living and helping others during most of that time. He made more sense than your average adult. He said we should play after every storm. Lets face it; there are a lot of those strewn over a lifetime. He relished getting as much out of every moment as he could. Magnificent sunrises were one of his joys. He always said people should focus on what they have instead of what they dont. We lost a very courageous, empathic person when we lost him. We are lucky to have many more years to follow his example.Edgar Cayce Study GroupEdgar Cayces life and readings are at VA Beach at ARE (Association for Research & Enlightenment), From 10 to 11 this morning, about 20 people attended the Edgar Cayce Study Group in Classroom 1 in our Learning Center. The instructor was Dr. Pat Wellington who will discuss along with this group this topic once a month for four months starting today. Cayce gave only 2 readings a day to protect his health. During WWII, he gave sometimes 9 or 10 a day which caused him grave health issues. He had a 97 percent success rate in healing. Cayce went into a trance to get information and remembered nothing upon awakening. A new word Pat mentioned Grok to examine profoundly to understand from all angles through intuition or empathy. To fully and completely understand something in all its details and intricacies. It is understood so well that it is fully absorbed into oneself. It means almost everything we mean by religion, philosophy, and science and it means as little to us (because we are from earth) as color means to a blind man.

For further information, please call the church office at 352-237-4633.Joy Lutheran ChurchLast but not least are the work groups of Joy Lutheran Church. You know the ones, everyone has them. At Joy we have the Vocal Choir that sing four-part harmony at alternate Sunday services and the Bell Choir that plays on special Sundays at both services. These groups provide the music that provides meaning to the worship service and helps the congregation to get involved in that service. What would we do without those wonderful ushers who make sure everything is set up for each Sunday service and sees to it that everyone finds a seat. Oh yes, they also collect the donations and guide the congregation to communion. The Altar Guild ladies are also indispensable because they faithfully set up for communion each Sunday for both services and see that all is cleaned and returned to its rightful place. The functioning of the church could not go on without the help of all these committees, such as the Finance committee who watches the budget, the Worship and Music Committee who decides when and how the worship services will occur, the Property and Grounds Committee who repair and maintain all the physical requirements on the property, the Stewardship Committee who encourages the members to keep the church funded, the Christian Education Committee who plan the annual Vacation Bible School and the Stephen Ministry who are prepared to spiritually support those who are ill and/or in crises. Oh yes and there is the Council that guides and directs all the activities of the church. Joy encourages members to think of many charitable projects. For example, there is a The Lutheran World Relief Coffee Project. They work with small farmer co-operatives in Latin America, Africa, Asia and the U.S.A. building trading relationships based on trust, fair prices, affordable credit and environmental sustainability. The church buys the coffee from the Equal Exchange, at cost, and sells it at cost. Other projects include collecting food for Interfaiths food pantry and also serving meals at Interfaith. Religion PLEASESEERELIGION, PAGE12 While we are having our brief periods of cold weather interspersed with nice high temperatures, the northern parts of our country have been getting a lot of snow along with exceptional cold conditions. Pushing the nonexistent snow off of Pun Alley we travel to where they have real snow.A moving situationSam and his wife Rhoda live in Manchester, New Hampshire. One winter morning while listening to the radio, they heard the announcer say, We will have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even numbered side of the street, so the snowplow can get through. Rhoda went out and moved her car. A week later they heard the radio announcer say, We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd numbered side of the street, so the snowplow can get through. Rhoda moved her car again. The next time they heard the same announcement, Rhoda said that she is getting tired of moving the car so often and really didnt want to do it. Sam replied, Why dont you just leave it in the garage this time?SnowedOn her way home from shopping, snow came down so hard and fast that Rhoda got lost and soon was stuck, but managed to get her car into the path a snowplow just made. She remembered what her dad had once told her, If you ever get lost in a snow storm, wait for a snow plow and follow it. She followed the plow for about forty-five minutes. Finally the truck driver got out and asked her what she was doing. She explained that her dad had told her if she ever got stuck in the snow, to follow a plow. The driver nodded and said, Well, Im done with the Wal-Mart parking lot; now you can follow me over to Kmart.Baby, Its cold outsideJust got off the phone with a friend who lives in Minot, North Dakota. He said that since early this morning the snow has been nearly waist high and is still falling. The temperature is 32 below zero and the north wind is increasing to near gale force. His wife has done nothing but look through the kitchen window and just stare. He says that if it gets much worse, he may have to let her in.SnowflakesIt was so cold yesterday that several lawyers had their hands in their own pockets. Always buy thermometers in the wintertime because theyre much lower then. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall but winter didnt look too promising. When the forecaster was unsure of his prediction, he weathered the storm. I went to the bank ATM when the temperature read 26 so I could get some cold cash. It was so cold we had to chop up the piano for firewood, but we only got two chords. Snowmen fall from Heaven unassembled. A sign on a northern nudist camp gate was changed to Clothed For The Winter. The weather is great. My car wont start running and my nose wont stop.Slippery slopesAs the plane was flying low over some hills near Athens, a lady asked the flight attendant, Whats that stuff all over those hills? Just snow, replied the flight attendant. Thats what I thought, said the lady, but this fellow in front of me said it was Greece.Cant stand itArriving on a flight to Portland Maine, lifetime Florida residents John and Ruth walked across a large parking lot to get into their rental car. The temperature was in the 20s making them and the car very cold. I wonder if the car has seat warmers? Ruth asked. It sure does, said John, looking at the controls on the dashboard. Here it is, rear defrosters.Think!This should warm your brain up a bit. If its zero degrees outside today and its supposed to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be?

I try to reach all of the wonderful people of Cherrywood and Marion County with this column. I feel that writers with even a limited platform in the community have a duty, no, a mission; to help those in need; those who are in danger; those who suffer and those who are sacrificing for us. I count it an honor and privilege to be able to share with you those special needs. If by Sunday, we were able to fill our donation bin with treats from home for our men and women in uniform it would produce several benefits. First, you will be able to enjoy the game even more knowing youve made the life of a service member just a little bit better; our service members will be provided with some of the comforts of home and lastly; I will proudly be able to announce to you, Mission accomplished. Enjoy the game and when they play the National Anthem; stand proud and strong; that is a gift your Veterans have given you. If you have suggestions or comments concerning the Cherrywood section of your Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

their wonderful thoughtful children and precious grandchildren. That may be a bit of a stretch; Im not sure; maybe two out of three. At any rate, on Wednesday, Feb. 12, plan to join the ladies of Cherrywood for a terrific meal and a great time. Mardi Gras PartyFat Tuesday, March 4, begins the season of Lent. Its called Fat Tuesday because tradition has it that people would use up all of the fat in the kitchen along with sugar and other goodies in preparation for the season of fasting and sacrifice that we call Lent Hence, on Tuesday everyone would party hardy before Ash Wednesday. In keeping with that tradition, Cherrywood is planning a great Mardi Gras Party. There will be finger foods and special music by the Jazzy Dixie Landers adding a festive spirit to the night. These entertainers will keep the mood light and lively as people dance and listen to their fantastic music. Tickets are only $2 per person so see Geri and get your reservations before they run out. This is going to be a fun night with raffles; 50/50 drawings; contests and other diversions. Keep checking the Cherrywood section of the Citizen for more details as the date draws closer.Patriot Dog donationsYour Cherrywood Veterans Club continues to take donations for the Patriot Dog Project that provides a service dog to a disabled Veteran. If you or your organization would like to contribute; please mail your check to the Cherrywood Veterans Club; 6253 SW 100 Loop; Ocala, Fl. 34476. In the memo section of your check or money order please write the word dog. Rest assured that every penny of your tax deductible donation goes towards the purchase; care; training and support of the Patriot Dog. No one from Patriot Dog or the Veterans Club receives any reimbursements or salaries. Thank you in advance for supporting this very worthwhile cause.From your reporterSunday marks the end of the football season with the last bowl game for the world championship. That might be a little presumptuous since only American teams are eligible to play but I digress. A friend of mine asked why it was called a bowl game remarking, Shouldnt that be for bowlers? I told him, Perhaps it was named for the shape of the stadium in which the first bowl game was played out in Pasadena. That question got me to thinking about other bowls. My personal favorite bowls are full cereal and soup bowls; a brimming punch bowl and well stocked pretzel bowl. It then crossed my mind that the very worst of all would be to not have snack bowls at all. So who wont have bowls filled with snacks on game day this coming Sunday; our military serving in combat zones overseas; thats who. They wont be watching the game in the comfort of their homes, surrounded by family and friends; but instead will be facing the dangers and hardships of war. There will be no snack bowls on the front lines. We have at our clubhouse a box for items to be shipped overseas to our service personnel serving in harms way. We call it Support our Soldiers and the project is run by Norellen and Ed Pickell. With the support of the Veterans Club these two dedicated individuals take the time and effort to ship out packages to our military in Afghanistan and Iraq. Items needed and requested by our troops include such things as body wash; energy bars; cookies; hard candies; coffee; tea; hot cocoa; pods of laundry detergent; nuts and trail mix. Items of hygiene are also requested because the military exchanges have trouble keeping these products in stock. Wouldnt it be great if everyone who planned to watch the bowl game this week-end brought in something for those who are protecting us overseas? It wouldnt take long to fill that box with goodies and let our troops know that they are remembered; respected and thought of with gratitude. Our donation box is located in the clubhouse so anyone from any where can bring in a donation. When you purchase a snack for yourself or your guests to enjoy; buy a little something extra and drop it off. If you are coming to the clubhouse to enjoy the game; bring something to remember our troops. You wont want to miss the first meeting of your Cherrywood Veterans Club on Thursday, Feb. 6 at 2 in the afternoon. This meeting will be filled with special guests; surprises and announcements for the coming months that will make you proud to be not only a veteran but a resident of this great community. Special events in the planning are just one of the features of this meeting. Youll get to see and chat with some local individuals who have made a huge difference in our community as well as learn the mystery of Johann. There will be exciting news about a special event for our veterans survivors and accomplishments that took place over the holidays and much more. This will be the most worthwhile hour of your week if you attend and share in the work of your Veterans Club. This will also be one of your last opportunities to get your raffle tickets for the Caribbean Cruise Raffle to be held on Feb. 15 at our Valentines Day party. You dont want to miss out on a chance to win a three day cruise for two with not only all port fees and taxes paid but with an extra $100 spending money. Nominations for officers will be taken at this meeting so if you would like to run for an office; be there to put your name into consideration. A social hour with free liquid refreshments will be held on the patio immediately following the meeting so you can share your ideas; laughter and good times with your fellow residents. The Cherrywood Veterans Club is proud of all that it does and is doing so our meetings are open to all Cherrywood residents. Come and be a part of something bigger than any one individual; Veterans who are still serving country; community and fellow veterans.Sports SundaySunday evening at 5:30 the clubhouse doors will open and residents will make their way into the most thrilling sports event of the year. Get your tickets immediately from Geri so you can be a part of this great day in our community. There will be sloppy Joes; hot dogs; chili dogs; soft drinks; chips and other snacks to enjoy prior to and during the game. Trivia games and prizes; 50/50 drawings and much more will all be a part of this exciting and entertaining evening of football. The teams have been chosen and all that remains is for you to come out and enjoy the game on our big screen TV. Root for your favorite team and raze your opposing fans just as if you were in the stadium but it will be a lot warmer and less crowded. Bring your own liquid refreshments and snacks if you wish to enjoy while you watch what promises to be a real bone crushing hard fought contest. You wont miss one minute of the action on or off the screen and youll have a great time. All this is available for just a $2 donation so get to the office today or contact Fred OHern to make sure you can get in. No gate crashers are allowed to this fantastic sports spectacle.

their wonderful thoughtful children and precious grandchildren. That may be a bit of a stretch; Im not sure; maybe two out of three. At any rate, on Wednesday, Feb. 12, plan to join the ladies of Cherrywood for a terrific meal and a great time. Mardi Gras PartyFat Tuesday, March 4, begins the season of Lent. Its called Fat Tuesday because tradition has it that people would use up all of the fat in the kitchen along with sugar and other goodies in preparation for the season of fasting and sacrifice that we call Lent Hence, on Tuesday everyone would party hardy before Ash Wednesday. In keeping with that tradition, Cherrywood is planning a great Mardi Gras Party. There will be finger foods and special music by the Jazzy Dixie Landers adding a festive spirit to the night. These entertainers will keep the mood light and lively as people dance and listen to their fantastic music. Tickets are only $2 per person so see Geri and get your reservations before they run out. This is going to be a fun night with raffles; 50/50 drawings; contests and other diversions. Keep checking the Cherrywood section of the Citizen for more details as the date draws closer.Patriot Dog donationsYour Cherrywood Veterans Club continues to take donations for the Patriot Dog Project that provides a service dog to a disabled Veteran. If you or your organization would like to contribute; please mail your check to the Cherrywood Veterans Club; 6253 SW 100 Loop; Ocala, Fl. 34476. In the memo section of your check or money order please write the word dog. Rest assured that every penny of your tax deductible donation goes towards the purchase; care; training and support of the Patriot Dog. No one from Patriot Dog or the Veterans Club receives any reimbursements or salaries. Thank you in advance for supporting this very worthwhile cause.From your reporterSunday marks the end of the football season with the last bowl game for the world championship. That might be a little presumptuous since only American teams are eligible to play but I digress. A friend of mine asked why it was called a bowl game remarking, Shouldnt that be for bowlers? I told him, Perhaps it was named for the shape of the stadium in which the first bowl game was played out in Pasadena. That question got me to thinking about other bowls. My personal favorite bowls are full cereal and soup bowls; a brimming punch bowl and well stocked pretzel bowl. It then crossed my mind that the very worst of all would be to not have snack bowls at all. So who wont have bowls filled with snacks on game day this coming Sunday; our military serving in combat zones overseas; thats who. They wont be watching the game in the comfort of their homes, surrounded by family and friends; but instead will be facing the dangers and hardships of war. There will be no snack bowls on the front lines. We have at our clubhouse a box for items to be shipped overseas to our service personnel serving in harms way. We call it Support our Soldiers and the project is run by Norellen and Ed Pickell. With the support of the Veterans Club these two dedicated individuals take the time and effort to ship out packages to our military in Afghanistan and Iraq. Items needed and requested by our troops include such things as body wash; energy bars; cookies; hard candies; coffee; tea; hot cocoa; pods of laundry detergent; nuts and trail mix. Items of hygiene are also requested because the military exchanges have trouble keeping these products in stock. Wouldnt it be great if everyone who planned to watch the bowl game this week-end brought in something for those who are protecting us overseas? It wouldnt take long to fill that box with goodies and let our troops know that they are remembered; respected and thought of with gratitude. Our donation box is located in the clubhouse so anyone from any where can bring in a donation. When you purchase a snack for yourself or your guests to enjoy; buy a little something extra and drop it off. If you are coming to the clubhouse to enjoy the game; bring something to remember our troops. You wont want to miss the first meeting of your Cherrywood Veterans Club on Thursday, Feb. 6 at 2 in the afternoon. This meeting will be filled with special guests; surprises and announcements for the coming months that will make you proud to be not only a veteran but a resident of this great community. Special events in the planning are just one of the features of this meeting. Youll get to see and chat with some local individuals who have made a huge difference in our community as well as learn the mystery of Johann. There will be exciting news about a special event for our veterans survivors and accomplishments that took place over the holidays and much more. This will be the most worthwhile hour of your week if you attend and share in the work of your Veterans Club. This will also be one of your last opportunities to get your raffle tickets for the Caribbean Cruise Raffle to be held on Feb. 15 at our Valentines Day party. You dont want to miss out on a chance to win a three day cruise for two with not only all port fees and taxes paid but with an extra $100 spending money. Nominations for officers will be taken at this meeting so if you would like to run for an office; be there to put your name into consideration. A social hour with free liquid refreshments will be held on the patio immediately following the meeting so you can share your ideas; laughter and good times with your fellow residents. The Cherrywood Veterans Club is proud of all that it does and is doing so our meetings are open to all Cherrywood residents. Come and be a part of something bigger than any one individual; Veterans who are still serving country; community and fellow veterans.Sports SundaySunday evening at 5:30 the clubhouse doors will open and residents will make their way into the most thrilling sports event of the year. Get your tickets immediately from Geri so you can be a part of this great day in our community. There will be sloppy Joes; hot dogs; chili dogs; soft drinks; chips and other snacks to enjoy prior to and during the game. Trivia games and prizes; 50/50 drawings and much more will all be a part of this exciting and entertaining evening of football. The teams have been chosen and all that remains is for you to come out and enjoy the game on our big screen TV. Root for your favorite team and raze your opposing fans just as if you were in the stadium but it will be a lot warmer and less crowded. Bring your own liquid refreshments and snacks if you wish to enjoy while you watch what promises to be a real bone crushing hard fought contest. You wont miss one minute of the action on or off the screen and youll have a great time. All this is available for just a $2 donation so get to the office today or contact Fred OHern to make sure you can get in. No gate crashers are allowed to this fantastic sports spectacle. Proceeds from the game will be donated to the Patriot Dog Project so come out and support them as well as having a great time.Movie NightEach month your Cherrywood Social Committee headed up by Jay OHern shows a top notch feature film in the clubhouse of Cherrywood.

I try to reach all of the wonderful people of Cherrywood and Marion County with this column. I feel that writers with even a limited platform in the community have a duty, no, a mission; to help those in need; those who are in danger; those who suffer and those who are sacrificing for us. I count it an honor and privilege to be able to share with you those special needs. If by Sunday, we were able to fill our donation bin with treats from home for our men and women in uniform it would produce several benefits. First, you will be able to enjoy the game even more knowing youve made the life of a service member just a little bit better; our service members will be provided with some of the comforts of home and lastly; I will proudly be able to announce to you, Mission accomplished. Enjoy the game and when they play the National Anthem; stand proud and strong; that is a gift your Veterans have given you. If you have suggestions or comments concerning the Cherrywood section of your Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

There are two special events in March and April.. I will tell you all about that soon. Im not sure winter knows its supposed to be here as summer keeps moving in every few weeks. Parking lots or freeways?What is with the way people drive in the parking lots? It is surprising there are not more accidents. And this is NOT just the young people its mostly the senior citizens.

At Joy we have the Vocal Choir that sing four-part harmony at alternate Sunday services and the Bell Choir that plays on special Sundays at both services. These groups provide the music that provides meaning to the worship service and helps the congregation to get involved in that service. What would we do without those wonderful ushers who make sure everything is set up for each Sunday service and sees to it that everyone finds a seat. Oh yes, they also collect the donations and guide the congregation to communion. The Altar Guild ladies are also indispensable because they faithfully set up for communion each Sunday for both services and see that all is cleaned and returned to its rightful place. The functioning of the church could not go on without the help of all these committees, such as the Finance committee who watches the budget, the Worship and Music Committee who decides when and how the worship services will occur, the Property and Grounds Committee who repair and maintain all the physical requirements on the property, the Stewardship Committee who encourages the members to keep the church funded, the Christian Education Committee who plan the annual Vacation Bible School and the Stephen Ministry who are prepared to spiritually support those who are ill and/or in crises. Oh yes and there is the Council that guides and directs all the activities of the church. Joy encourages members to think of many charitable projects. For example, there is a The Lutheran World Relief Coffee Project. They work with small farmer co-operatives in Latin America, Africa, Asia and the U.S.A. building trading relationships based on trust, fair prices, affordable credit and environmental sustainability. The church buys the coffee from the Equal Exchange, at cost, and sells it at cost. Other projects include collecting food for Interfaiths food pantry and also serving meals at Interfaith. Religion PLEASESEERELIGION, PAGE12 While we are having our brief periods of cold weather interspersed with nice high temperatures, the northern parts of our country have been getting a lot of snow along with exceptional cold conditions. Pushing the nonexistent snow off of Pun Alley we travel to where they have real snow.A moving situationSam and his wife Rhoda live in Manchester, New Hampshire. One winter morning while listening to the radio, they heard the announcer say, We will have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even numbered side of the street, so the snowplow can get through. Rhoda went out and moved her car. A week later they heard the radio announcer say, We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd numbered side of the street, so the snowplow can get through. Rhoda moved her car again. The next time they heard the same announcement, Rhoda said that she is getting tired of moving the car so often and really didnt want to do it. Sam replied, Why dont you just leave it in the garage this time?SnowedOn her way home from shopping, snow came down so hard and fast that Rhoda got lost and soon was stuck, but managed to get her car into the path a snowplow just made. She remembered what her dad had once told her, If you ever get lost in a snow storm, wait for a snow plow and follow it. She followed the plow for about forty-five minutes. Finally the truck driver got out and asked her what she was doing. She explained that her dad had told her if she ever got stuck in the snow, to follow a plow. The driver nodded and said, Well, Im done with the Wal-Mart parking lot; now you can follow me over to Kmart.Baby, Its cold outsideJust got off the phone with a friend who lives in Minot, North Dakota. He said that since early this morning the snow has been nearly waist high and is still falling. The temperature is 32 below zero and the north wind is increasing to near gale force. His wife has done nothing but look through the kitchen window and just stare. He says that if it gets much worse, he may have to let her in.SnowflakesIt was so cold yesterday that several lawyers had their hands in their own pockets. Always buy thermometers in the wintertime because theyre much lower then. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall but winter didnt look too promising. When the forecaster was unsure of his prediction, he weathered the storm. I went to the bank ATM when the temperature read 26 so I could get some cold cash. It was so cold we had to chop up the piano for firewood, but we only got two chords. Snowmen fall from Heaven unassembled. A sign on a northern nudist camp gate was changed to Clothed For The Winter. The weather is great. My car wont start running and my nose wont stop.Slippery slopesAs the plane was flying low over some hills near Athens, a lady asked the flight attendant, Whats that stuff all over those hills? Just snow, replied the flight attendant. Thats what I thought, said the lady, but this fellow in front of me said it was Greece.Cant stand itArriving on a flight to Portland Maine, lifetime Florida residents John and Ruth walked across a large parking lot to get into their rental car. The temperature was in the 20s making them and the car very cold. I wonder if the car has seat warmers? Ruth asked. It sure does, said John, looking at the controls on the dashboard. Here it is, rear defrosters.Think!This should warm your brain up a bit. If its zero degrees outside today and its supposed to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be?

to thinking, after all, what else can you do when everything is frozen? With all the advancements in science and technology, why is it we cannot control the weather? Something as simple as the weather and nobody seems to be able to control it. Politicians will get up and spout off at how they are going to change things and control things and improve things. Well, Mr. Politician, why dont you begin with the weather? Change the weather for a change. Why cant these big shots control the weather? They spend a lot of time (and our money) trying to control us. They now want to tell us what we can eat and cannot eat and how much soda we can drink at any one time. They tell us how much of our money we need to send back to the government so they can raise their salaries and increase their benefits. It seems quite a paradox that when our country is going through hard times and people who pay the taxes have to tighten their belts that it is time for politicians to vote on a raise in their salary. For once, I would like to see these political big shots vote on decreasing their salary and standing alongside the American people. The danger of that is, it would be such a shock to the American people that people would be dropping dead left and right. So why cant these people control the weather? Why cant they pass a law regulating the temperature? They have a law regulating everything else. Why not the temperature? Why not the weather? I am for having some of these politicians put together one of their infamous subcommittees, sit down with Mother Nature and negotiate something that will make everybody happy, like warm weather. I would like to see some of my tax dollars go for something that would benefit everybody instead of some party at some insignificant political convention. Personally, I think Mother Nature would be easy to work with under such circumstances as we have today. Every mother has a nurturing side and I believe there is no exception here with good old Mother Nature. Maybe she does not know how inconvenient this cold weather has been for us. I think she would be willing to negotiate a long these lines. I would like to select the politicians to be on this committee myself. I have my own list and would be happy to set it up. The reason is, I know that when one of those politicians throws his chest out and begins one of those mind-numbing speeches, and you know they will, they always do, it will irritate Mother Nature. Boy, would I love to see her light into one of them. Nothing is more awesome than the fury of Mother Nature. Besides, nothing is more idiotic than men or women, big in their own eyes, pontificating on things they cannot control as if they had any say in it. I think if you cannot control something as commonplace as the weather you had better find out who can and align yourself up with that person. The Bible tells us exactly who that is. The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet (Nahum 1:3). I do not have to deal with Mother Nature, who incidentally does not exist; I deal with God who controls all things and I am happy to have him control my life as well.Rev. James L.

I do not often make public confessions, but confession is good for the soul. My confession, however, has nothing whatsoever to do with my soul. Simply put, I am cold to the bone! I guess I have been colder but I am suffering from brain freeze right now I was hoping all that chatter about global warming was somewhere in the neighborhood of being true. If so, nobody happened to send the memo to Mother Nature. With the sophistication of our communication technology today, I am not sure how this memo failed to get to her. Of course, they could have sent the message with one of those infamous government computers. We all know how reliable they are. Another thought along this line is that maybe Mother Nature got the memo all right, but, like all good mothers do, ignored it and went about her own business. After all, mothers really do know best even when it does not seem so at the time. However, I am cold and need some encouragement or at least some warm thoughts along this line. The warmest thought I have had recently has been that I have relatives in colder areas then I am. I must confess it does make me feel a little better, just not that much warmer. Where I live we dont have that cold stuff that piles up on the ground like they do up north keeping you from getting to where you want to go. Whoever was singing, Im Dreaming of a White Christmas, please stop singing, Christmas is over. Start dreaming about something a little warmer than all of that white stuff, like a Green Easter. This probably has been the coldest winter in a good long time and it got me How to deal with Mother Natures cold shoulder Read the classifieds Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder THE LIGHT BETWEEN THE OCEANS By M. L. Stedman Australian novelist Stedman opens her book Light Between the Oceans with a situation so dramatic that the reader is hooked immediately. A lighthouse keeper and his wife, a childless couple living in isolation on beautiful Janus Rock, come upon a drifting boat in which the two occupants are a dead man and a lovely baby girl wrapped in a womans blue cashmere sweater. Tom Sherbourne is a World War I veteran who, having witnessed so much violence, treasures the peace and quiet of Janus Rock. His young wife, however, has suffered several miscarriages and one still birth, that of a baby girl whose grave she lovingly attends. When Tom tries to act responsibly by alerting authorities, his wife Isabel, whos instantly bonded with the baby, talks him out of it, arguing that nothing can help the deceased, and the baby was destined to be an orphan in a cold institution. Here we see Toms mind at work, his understanding of his wifes motherly instincts juxtaposed with his need to do whats right. Ultimately, he conspires with Isabel to break the law, feeling in his heart that there will be consequences for their action. They name her Lucy and she is the joy of their lives. Still, Tom is haunted by the specter of a woman somewhere grieving for her lost loved ones. His wife harbors no such misgivings prompting Tom to wonder again and again at the hidden recesses of Isabels mindthe spaces where she managed to bury the turmoil his own mind couldnt escape. Toms meticulous attention to the lighthouse keeps him going. Every surface in the light room gleamed; the prisms sparkled and the beam shone unhindered by even a speck of dust. But at night while his wife and child slept Tom studied the rotation of the beam and thought bitterly that the dip of the light meant the island itself was always left in darkness. A lighthouse is for others; powerless to illuminate the space closest to it. Unfortunately, after a stunning beginning Stedman seems to lose her pace. The story stalls while we wait for the inevitablethat the truth will come out. This is a good story that runs out of steam but leaves the reader with wonderful images of the stark landscape of Janus Rock. Good story that runs out of steam Bookmark Pat Wellington Retirees ought to start thinking like the young, very sick boy, Mattie Stepanek. He wrote poems which he called Heartsongs. Although he died at the age of 14, he did a lot of living and helping others during most of that time. He made more sense than your average adult. He said we should play after every storm. Lets face it; there are a lot of those strewn over a lifetime. He relished getting as much out of every moment as he could. Magnificent sunrises were one of his joys. He always said people should focus on what they have instead of what they dont. We lost a very courageous, empathic person when we lost him. We are lucky to have many more years to follow his example.Edgar Cayce Study GroupEdgar Cayces life and readings are at VA Beach at ARE (Association for Research & Enlightenment), From 10 to 11 this morning, about 20 people attended the Edgar Cayce Study Group in Classroom 1 in our Learning Center. The instructor was Dr. Pat Wellington who will discuss along with this group this topic once a month for four months starting today. Cayce gave only 2 readings a day to protect his health. During WWII, he gave sometimes 9 or 10 a day which caused him grave health issues. He had a 97 percent success rate in healing. Cayce went into a trance to get information and remembered nothing upon awakening. A new word Pat mentioned Grok to examine profoundly to understand from all angles through intuition or empathy. To fully and completely understand something in all its details and intricacies. It is understood so well that it is fully absorbed into oneself. It means almost everything we mean by religion, philosophy, and science and it means as little to us (because we are from earth) as color means to a blind man.

Cayce was brought up in the Catholic Church and, therefore, did not believe in reincarnation. One time he was in a trance and went back to one of his previous lives. Each year, he read the bible from beginning to end and then started all over again the next year. He spent a lot of time trying to find any mention of reincarnation in it. Finally, he found a bit of information that it was so. Then he was able to accept this idea. Ian Stevensons book, The Reluctant Messenger was suggested reading. Its about scientific proof of reincarnation. A homework assignment was given that could be done or not. Each night before bed, Pat suggested the class should write three things that had value for each person that day. Try to do it for at least a week but longer would be better.

Friday, January 31, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, January 31, 2014 BY BRYAN GOLDEN Special to the Citizen The greatest danger to American freedom is a government that ignores the Constitution Thomas JeffersonThroughout history, tyrants have repeatedly used the same devious tactics to suppress freedom. The march of tyranny advances along a road paved with lies and deceit. Truth and transparency are the enemies of tyrants. In order to succeed, tyrants must squelch the natural yearning for freedom and replace it with a struggle for basic survival driven by fear. Tyrants view liberty and freedom as a threat to their power. They are never upfront about their plans to subjugate the people. If they were, there would be an uprising of opposition. Instead, tyrants use lies and deception to appear benevolent, caring, and concerned about the people. At the same time, tyrants ardently work behind the scenes to accomplish the exact opposite of that which they are promising. Tyrants always hide their true intentions of subjugation and control. Tyrants understand no one wants what is being forced on them. Tyrants have no interest in, and are intolerant of free speech. Instead, they systematically silence any opposition. Tyrants rely on iron fisted control to advance their sinister agenda. Privacy is targeted for elimination. Tyrants want to monitor everyones behavior and communications. Tyrants use fear to acquire and maintain power. They want control over every aspect of peoples lives. Fear is a tool leveraged to keep people in line. Tyrants abuse their power to punish those who defy them. They single out dissident individuals so as to make examples out of them. Tyrants want people to be afraid of speaking or acting in opposition. Tyrants divide in order to conquer. They pit various segments of society against each other based on economic status, skin color, gender, age, religion, values, or race. Tyrants recognize that its easier to control people when they are fighting with each other rather than uniting against oppression. Tyrants enrich themselves and their supporters financially. They maintain lavish lifestyles by spending other peoples money. Confiscation from the hard work of others is their source of wealth. Tyrants also take from some groups and give to others. A common strategy is to seize from those willing to work in order to give to those who are not. This generates added animosity between various segments of society and it builds total dependence on the tyrant for basic needs. Tyrants do not believe they are constrained by existing laws. They consider themselves above the law and entitled to act unilaterally without the necessity of seeking any consent. When their dictatorial actions are allowed to stand unchallenged, they are emboldened to further push the limits of their lawless behavior. Eventually, they usurp enough power to forcibly stamp out any opposition. Tyrants require apathy and complacency to progress. Through cunning deception, tyrants actually manage to get their targeted victims to support their efforts. Then their victims are shocked to find that they too are suffering under the tyrants crushing force. Tyrants only care about themselves and advancing their destructive agenda. Any claims to the contrary are devious lies. Tyrants intentionally destroy everything good and worthwhile in their path. They leave a shattered wasteland of endless suffering and misery. Tyrants persist until stopped by the people standing up and saying NO MORE! A society decides by their action or inaction whether they chose Freedom or Tyranny.Bryan Golden is the author of Dare to Live Without Limits. Contact him at Bryan@columnist.com or visit www.DareToLiveWithoutLimits.com. Coming up this weekend is the not-so-Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks, two teams that, as far as many on the East Coast know, barely exist. Everyone can name the quarterbacks of both teams, and the defensive back whose rant made headlines is now well known. But Im not sure everyone can name the coach of the Broncos. You know, thats the guy who, along with pompous John Elway, started Tim Tebow when the team was 14, just to let him fail so they could get rid of him, and Tebow won the division title and beat the Steelers in a playoff game. Talk about the best laid plans, etc. That didnt help Tebows career, though. They were determined to lose him, and they did and brought in Peyton Manning. Manning had a great year, but Im so sick of hearing about him for these two weeks that Ive sworn off sports talk shows. I will tune in the game Sunday at 6:29 (well, maybe a little earlier to see if someone is going to botch the National Anthem and to see if theyre playing in a blizzard). Ill probably record the game too. Most people record a game so they can skip the commercials, but Im looking forward to the commercials almost as much as the game. I mentioned the blizzard, and Im rooting for a polar vortex to settle in on New Jersey on Sunday. Scheduling a game in northern New Jersey in early February has to be one of the silliest moves in the history of the NFL. I know, I was brought up in northern New Jersey, in the same county as MetLife Stadium. Ive dug my car out from many a polar vortex or whatever, in those days we called them snowstorms. So here we go with the annual spectacle called the Super Bowl. I think Ill root for the Seahawks, just so I can see Erin Andrews completely baffled by a post-game rant by some player no one cares about. I hope the halftime show is entertaining, as it used to be, although lately its become a great time to go to the refrigerator and do whatever else you need to do at the break. And Ill laugh at the obligatory camera shots of the huddled masses trying to stay warm. By the way, that Denver coachs name is John Fox, and Im sure hell be mentioned several times during the broadcast. After all, you know which network is telecasting the game.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

There are flu shots still available, according to experts, despite some erroneous reports of shortages. Its not too late to get a shot to protect yourself against the flu, particularly against the aggressive H1N1 version that is making the rounds. There used to be several myths about getting the flu from a shot, but in recent years almost all of those have been disproven. The flu can be a deadly disease. As of Monday, five people in Central Florida have died from the flu, and no one knows if other deaths have been accurately reported. Dont take a chance with you familys health, or with your childrens health get that flu shot as soon as possible. One of the interesting sidelights is that there is some research group offering people $3,000 to be inoculated with the flu so they can be studied, to better help treatment of the disease. To find out more, just go online and search for flu $3,000 and you should get the information. Someone asked us if we would take $3,000 to be given the flu in a shot. We said, Sure. It will help pay for the funeral. Take precautions against the flu. Get that flu shot, even if it seems to be a little late. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Its not too late to get a flu shot Not-so-Super Bowl is this Sunday Understanding the relentless march of tyranny READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor sion. The Chief Justice basically re-wrote the law to make it constitutional. So how do we make federal judges accountable? Not by impeachment; in our entire history only about 12 federal judges have been impeached. Look at California, where appointed judges are subject to voter recall. In 1986, its citizens recalled their Chief Justice and two others because they were anti-death penalty zealots who always voted to overturn death sentences. Late in his life, Thomas Jefferson wrote two essays denouncing the lack of accountability in the Supreme Court. We should do whatever it takes, even amending the Constitution, to remedy this. Al Shumard Oak Run LETTERS TO THE EDITOR AccountabilityIn most jobs, there is accountability. If we dont satisfy our employers and/or customers, there are usually bad consequences. Elected officials periodically face the voters. I once had a 14-term Congressman who was defeated in 2010 because he voted for cap-and-trade (not popular in coal country). The biggest exception is the U.S. Supreme Court. The Constitution gives them lifetime appointments based on good behavior. They are accountable to no one. For example, Justice Sotomayor swore, during her confirmation hearing, that shed uphold the Second Amendment. Then she went against it in McDonald vs. City of Chicago. Because there is no accountability, we have received some atrocious decisions, such as: 1. Dred Scott (1857). A slave had been taken to live in a free state by his owner but still could not be free. 2. Plessey v. Ferguson (1896). Gave us the infamous separate but equal doctrine in public accommodations. 3. Wickard v. Filburn (1942). Upheld a fine against a farmer who exceeded his government-mandated wheat production quota, even though the excess had been consumed on his own farm. 4. Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton (1973). By nullifying all 50 states abortion prohibitions and restrictions, they ruled that all 50 states were violating the Constitution. 5. Kelo v. City of New London (2005). Allowed a city to condemn property, not for a normal public use like a road or hospital, but to erect a commercial building that would pay more taxes. 6.

But instead of getting upset about the delay, open yourself up to other possibilities, and begin checking out some alternative destinations. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Changing conditions might require you to alter some of your plans. While you might be agreeable to this, be prepared with explanations for those who do not want changes made.

This 3-time Grammy Award Nominated and 2-time GMA Dove Award Winning Southern Gospel Group features Karens flawless, delightful soprano voice and has made its way into the hearts of Gospel Music lovers across the country and garnered an unprecedented 11 Favorite Soprano Fan Awards from the readers of The Singing News Magazine, Southern 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.

It is an honor to serve Him.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 Choral work to be presentedThe Ocala Symphony Orchestra (OSO) brings one of the most popular and well-recognized choral works of the 21st Century, Carl Orffs Carmina Burana, to Ocala in a spectacular collaboration with Marion County Center for the Arts (MCCA) Choir Feb. 14-16 at West Port High School. The MCCA Choir will accompany the OSOs full orchestra and community choir to perform this lauded cantata, the collaboration of which will provide these talented students with the opportunity to gain real-life experience in a professional music environment. Exposing Marion County youth to an expanded offering of music is one of the OSOs core community outreach goals of the Youth Outreach program. The MCCA choral program at West Port High School, under the direction of Ms. Nancy Atkinson, studies many genres of music including classical, show tunes and jazz. WPHS began in 2001 and serves as the magnet school for visual and performing fine arts in order to prepare artistically gifted and talented students from the Marion County area for post-secondary arts education and/or employment in the arts. With student enrollment of over 470 students from all parts of Marion County, the magnet has already impacted the community by earning high awards in all areas of the visual and performing arts. The OSOs charismatic music director, Maestro Matthew Wardell, states the cinematic flare of Carmina Burana is an ideal production to collaborate with WPHS. Carmina Burana has been the most requested composition by our patrons. By collaborating with the MCCA choir, the intensity of this masterpiece can be brought whole-heartedly to Marion County. Its exciting. Its loud. Its moving; and in fact, most audiences who arent familiar with classical music will recognize O Fortuna, the works opening and closing movement, as it is used in many movies and television commercials internationally, stated Wardell. The concerts will be held on Friday, Feb. 14 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 15 at 3 p.m. in the state of the art facility at West Port High School, 3722 SW 80th Ave. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by visiting www.ocalasymphony.com or by calling 352-3511606. 000H4PG There really is a difference in salons .
