ONLY 1 LEFT! Turn clocks ahead Sunday BY JIM CLARK EditorThe silence was deafening. It was just a month ago that the task force on dog tethering made its recommendation to the County Commission: prohibit unsupervised tethering. The move came after weeks of meetings and several weeks of discussion by the public at Commission meetings that resulted in the appointment of the panel. But on Tuesday, the tethering issue apparently died a quick death in just 60 seconds. Commissioner David Moore, speaking under Commission Comments, raised the issue that was not on the agenda, and made a motion that the recommendations of the task force be adopted in a revision of the animal control ordinance. Chairman Carl Zalak waited a moment, but no one spoke. The motion dies for lack of a second, Zalak said, and the meeting moved ahead. There had been one person, Patricia Reed, signed up to speak about the issue, but Zalak announced at the beginning of the public portion of the meeting that she was not available. Arguments against tethering at the time of discussions said that dogs can become overly aggressive, and that in some cases there was cruelty involved. Those who were against the ban had argued that the county already has animal cruelty laws that could be enforce, and some indicated that government was overstepping its bounds by telling people what they could do with their animals in their own yard, as long as it wasnt harmful to the dogs. In other business, Zalak expressed concerns over a recent union agreement with the sheriff that calls for raises for deputies. The financial agreement was done without consulting commissioners, Zalak said, and will have an effect as the countyprepares next years budget.

Chatting over the fence with people walking or bicycling past and sometimes never knowing their names but always knowing their smiles or waves. Our home before was always filled with love and surrounded by wonderful neighbors, but we all worked and were raising families and were on the road more than at home. It was quite a different life than the one we are living now. The slower pace doesnt seem very slow but standing back and really looking, shows that now we have the time to take care of each other. Even if we dont know each other, we take care. We are also ever so grateful for this Florida weather. No place, no community, no person, can ever be perfect. There is always a wart to be found just down the street or on your left foot. So much easier to be happy with warmer temperatures (unless you are a snowboarder) and warm hearted people. We have also found the Ocala young people to be almost always, courteous and quick to smile. What a pleasure those smiles are. Must be the weather.

Invitations also have been extended to the local Republican Party and to the League of Women Voters. The Tampa Bay Times, in an editorial March 2, noted that Gov Scott has pursued a purge of voter rolls that threatened to disenfranchise minority voters; the county elections supervisors revolted. He signed into law restrictions on early voting; the public outcry forced changes. Thus we must exercise eternal vigilance in order to ensure that all eligible voters are able to exercise their right to vote. No matter how well our citizens are served in Marion County problems do occur here and elsewhere. The Friday Forum is open to all who wish to join in civil community dialogue.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE65 A RIES ( March 21 to April 19) Take time from your busy schedule to check out whats going on around you. You might find that someone has been secretly trying to pull the wool over those beautiful Sheeps eyes. TA URUS ( April 20 to May 20) Once again, the Bovines boldness pays off in uncovering the source of a disturbing workplace situation. Your personal life calls for patience, as a certain matter plays itself out. GEM INI ( May 21 to J une 20) Forget about going all out to impress someone in your personal life. Just being yourself is all that matters. A workplace decision will need more time. Dont rush into it. CA NC ER (June 21 to J uly 22) Some supersensitive Crabs might take offense at what they perceive as a slight. But a closer look points to a simple misunderstanding. The weekend holds a welcome surprise. L EO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Sure, you can roar your head off over someones failure to keep a promise. But the wiser course would be to ask why it happened. Be prepared for an answer that might well surprise you. VIRGO ( Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A developing relationship needs time to find its direction. So be patient and resist pushing things along. A recently cooleddown workplace situation could heat up again. LIBR A ( Sept. 23 to O ct. 22) Congratulations. Your well-thought-out proposal seems to be working. Someone who hasnt agreed with you on most things in the past could turn out to be one of your major supporters. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov 21) Things seem to be going well. However, you can still expect criticism some of it pretty heavy. But as long as you can back up your position, youll be able to rise above it.

come to the clubhouse at noon for a delicious meal and some fun conversation. Just be sure to also bring a dish to share and a place setting. I find it is such fun to make enough food to share and maybe show off a favorite dish or two. Even if it is purchased at the grocery store. Every dish is appreciated and enjoyed and so is the company of our friends and neighbors.Thermo-Cool SeminarOn March 19 at 11 a.m., there will be a great opportunity for folks to learn how to maintain their A/C system and keep it in great condition for the summer months coming fast. We can do so much ourselves to keep our system in tip top condition. This seminar is well worth the time to prevent the high cost of replacing our systems sooner than necessary. Sashay into the clubhouse and sign up with Geri as she needs a head count. There will also be food involved from Thermo-Cool. How cool is that?Sock HopSaturday, March 22, 7 to 10 p.m., come dance at the clubhouse just for the fun of it. The dance is free to our Cherrywood residents and their guests. No cost to attend, no 50/50 raffle. Bring your drinks, snacks and list of your favorite music to sing along or dance to for our delightful DJ Rich Becotte. Another terrific opportunity to show your new neighbor or guest, what a really great place Cherrywood is, to live.TriviaWednesday, March 19, 7 p.m., you cant imagine the fun until you try it. Easy Peasy to play. How often do we say to another, what is the name of that movie star I liked so much? Hours later you might get the answer. Well, with Trivia you have team partners who can guess the multiple choice answers right along with you. Somebody is bound to get it right. This month the questions will be presented by our real writer, John Everlove. The subjects are, St. Patricks Day, general knowledge, geography, entertainment and sports. Amazing how each subject can produce a laugh and a smile and even a correct answer. Where else can you have so much fun for only $1? Our Trivia players have donated more than $400 to the Wounded Warrior Project in 2013. For 2014, we are supporting Patriot Dogs Charity. Such worthy causes benefit from such a good time. Climb out of your recliner or lawn chair and come join us in our Cherrywood activities. There truly is something for everyone.Yard salesOur Cherrywood Yard Sales this year will be on the first Saturdays in April and October. Our next one will be our spring yard sale on April 5 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dont forget and please do not put your items out the night before, as that can cause problems. Put them out first thing Saturday morning and we hope it will be a wonderful, sunny, productive day. Im sure we have all found that moment when the piece of furniture or knick knack we couldnt live without, has lost its luster and needs to be loved by someone else.Cherrywood ChirpOur Chirp magazine is placed in our buddy box on the 1st of every month. To all of our new neighbors, and some not so new, you will find all the information you need about the happenings in our wonderful community of Cherrywood. Activities, entertainment, thank you notes, letters from our military. Birthdays, anniversaries, travel opportunities. If you dont find a Chirp rolled up in your buddy box under your mailbox, please get one from Geri in the clubhouse office and tell her to notify the delivery person to leave one in your box. These little magazines are invaluable information to keep track of all the great happenings in our mini spot on the planet. We surely dont want to miss the opportunity to meet and get to know our neighbors. Thats why we live in a community instead of alone in the middle of 20 acres. Please check the last page in this months Chirp. There is a Disaster Preparedness Survey that is an important part of life in a community. Fill it out folks, it could save your life. All it takes is a really windy day and a tree on top of a house, to change your life forever.ClubhouseAfter attending a private party in our beautiful Cherrywood Clubhouse recently, I am wondering if most of our residents are aware that it is a great place to entertain and is available to us all for a refundable charge or no charge. What is required is to notify Geri for a reservation and to clean up all that is used, afterward. How nice is that? What a great way to hold a birthday party or anniversary with all your friends and not have to figure out how your own house will hold all the precious people you would like to invite.Just a NoteJust so you readers know, I havent been writing all of this by myself. John has done the writing for the Veterans Club activities and today for the Accordion Club. Geri gives me good outlines of items that need covered. This writing gig has been a team effort. Its been a while since I have really been obligated to do something. I find it pushes me a bit and I like it. I love the idea of periodically filling in for John to give him a break (we love you John) and this requires that I become more aware and active in my own neighborhood. Jim (my own dearly beloved) and I have always deeply appreciated what we have here in Cherrywood. Never before could we sit outside in a screened patio in March and hear neighbors singingFriday, March 7, 2014 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, March 7, 2014 www.smcitizen.com CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 25 PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE29 Saturday, March 15 Yard sale to benefit Ocala RelayA giant yard sale to support Relay for Life will take place on Saturday, March 15, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Cascades, 1515 E.

Friday, March 7, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, March 7, 2014 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenPresident Obama insists he does not regard the conflict in Ukraine as some Cold War chessboard in which we are in competition with Russia. Hed be more credible if he were not following his predecessors in acting as though the Cold War still exists. Although the Soviet empire, including its Warsaw Pact alliance, disbanded beginning in 1989, Republican and Democratic presidents have pursued aggressively anti-Russian policies up to the present. Most glaringly, NATO, the Western alliance created after World War II ostensibly to deter a Soviet invasion of Western Europe, did not also disband. On the contrary, at U.S. insistence and in violation of promises to Russias leaders, the alliance has grown and found new missions, such as intervening militarily against Russias ally Serbia and in Afghanistan and Libya. That would have been bad enough, but former members of the Soviet bloc, as well as former Soviet republics, have been admitted to NATO: Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia. Besides that, U.S. officials have talked up two other former Soviet republics, Georgia and surprise! Ukraine, as potential members of the alliance. Moreover, the U.S. government had a hand in the Georgian and Ukrainian color revolutions, which brought pro-U.S. politicians to power, at least for a time. The Obama administration is still at it today. The hostile push of NATO up to the doorstep of Russia (along with other threatening measures) has not gone unnoticed in Moscow. One can imagine the howls wed hear from American politicians, not least of all the ever-belligerent Sen. John McCain, if Russia were doing something similar in the vicinity of the United States. The sorry fact is that Americas rulers did much more than spike the football when the Soviet Union peacefully disintegrated. In every conceivable way, they exploited the occasion to assure that the United States would maintain its status as sole superpower and global hegemon. They humiliated Russias leadership, apparently not caring that it would never passively accept the insult. Its about time American politicians saw how their foreign policies look to those on the receiving end. Whats happening in Ukraine is sad. The country is divided between those who want closer ties to Western Europe and those who want closer ties to Russia. Since becoming independent of Russia, Ukraine has suffered corruption and worse offenses at the hands of legal plunderers. Now demonstrations in the streets even mob rule featuring neo-Nazis have resulted in turmoil and death, and the Russia-leaning president, Viktor Yanukovich, has fled the capital, while the parliament has named an interim replacement. To make things worse, outsiders wont keep their hands off. One thing we can know for sure and one need not be an admirer of Russian president Vladimir Putin to see it is that the United States should steer clear of Ukraine. It is none of the U.S. governments business whether that country is economically closer to Russia or the European Union (EU). The Obama administration should not only forswear direct and covert intervention, it should also shut up. American presidents must learn to mind their own business, even where Russia is concerned. Two weeks ago we talked about Richie Incognito of the Miami Dolphins and his apparent hazing of a rookie teammate, hazing that had racial overtones. There has been much debate over the past few months about those activities, but last week it was discovered that Incognito was being treated for mental issues at an undisclosed facility. If only it were that easy to get bullies out of the way. The Dolphins issue raised the bar in discussions of bullying as people everywhere discussed what could be done about it. In my experience, not much at least in the past. I still suffer bad memories from the days when I was a victim at Don Bosco High School in Ramsey, New Jersey. When I was a freshman, I was bullied unmercifully, mainly on the school bus, and I wasnt alone. All the freshmen on the bus were subject to physical intimidation, being ordered to dogpile on the floor of the bus, and all the while the bus driver, who wanted to be one of the boys, was the perfect imitation of the not-yet-popular Sgt. Schultz of Hogans Heroes: I see nothing. It all happened on the way home. In the morning it was important that when we got to school we would look clean and neat. It was a Catholic boys school, and we had to wear shirts and ties every day. The ties usually came off immediately after the bus pulled out of the parking lot. I started at this particular school because it was just about three miles from home. But shortly after freshman year started, my parents moved us from Ramsey to Tenafly, and I suddenly had to take the bus. I still remember the name of the most prominent instigator of the bullying. Im not sure what I would do if I met him today, more than 50 years later, but I dont think it would be a reunion between long-lost friends. It got so bad that one day in the spring I walked out of school at lunch time, and walked and hitchhiked home. It was near the end of the school year, so my parents, who saw for the first time how upset I was, complained to the school. The next morning one of the two priests who ran the place with iron fists was on the bus, and this only added to the determination of the upperclassmen to pick on the freshmen when they had the chance. We hear a lot how bullying victims should tell someone, but I can tell you first-hand that isnt always a solution. Finally the school year ended, and mercifully I didnt have to take the bus the final day. I wanted to transfer to Bergen Catholic my sophomore year, but lacked one class, general science, that BC had for freshmen and Don Bosco didnt. So I went to the public school summer school, Tenafly High, and took science, and my mom also signed me up for another class typing. This turned out to be a decision that had a lifelong effect on me. I was already registered at Tenafly High, and already had a schedule, when Bergen Catholic called and they had a vacancy, since I now qualified. I wasnt sure at that point that I wanted to go there, but, in another good decision, my folks insisted on the Catholic school. It galls me every time I read about the football prowess of my first high school, how they play everywhere, how they often meet Bergen Catholic in state finals. I still, deep down, resent their ignoring of the bullies, and hope they lose every time BCHS plays them. I also wonder how the bus rides are nowadays for the freshmen. I hope its not a situation where they are picked on as much as we were. Maybe our suffering helped clean things up but somehow I have my doubts.

This coming weekend, move your clocks ahead one hour. Daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, which immediately becomes 3 a.m. If you forget to set your clocks ahead, you will probably be late for church Sunday morning. Its amazing how sometimes the human mind controls the body. Its only a one-hour time difference, yet for some reason it takes many people a week or more to adjust to the change. The one good thing that comes out of it is that, several years ago, someone had the good idea to link changing batteries in your smoke detectors to the time change. By making sure the batteries are fresh and operable, you could be saving lives, including your own. Daylight saving (not savings) time means that it will be dark later in the morning, a fact that puts some students in harms way as they wait for their buses in the dark. So if you have to drive early in the morning, make sure you watch out for youngsters heading for school. Of course it also means that there will be an extra hour of daylight in the evening, which means that bedtime for little ones will have to be adjusted, or else parents will face strong objections from youngsters whose bodies wont be ready to go to sleep. There wont even be an adjustment period for students. Spring break in Marion County doesnt start until Friday, March 21. Somehow, we wish that the powers-that-be would just say no more, and keep the time the same all year. Then we would face far fewer adjustments to our lives. But until that happens, take advantage of the sayings that urge you to change your batteries in your smoke detectors (and others, such as carbon monoxide, if you have them). Being careful may mean that youre around to change your clocks back next fall. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

The first is a two thirds vote in both houses of Congress and the second is a request, to Congress, by two thirds, or 34 of our state legislatures. All proposed amendments from a Convention must then be approved by three fourth, or 38 of the state legislatures. Levin lists 10 amendments that he believes will return our federal government to the founders principles and to our control. His amendments would include term limits for members of Congress and the Supreme Court, limits on federal spending and taxes, limits on the federal bureaucracy and protection of free enterprise, voting and private property. Our current members of Congress will never voluntarily vote for a Constitutional Convention that would endanger their opportunities for a long lucrative career in Washington. Their loyalty is to their party and their campaign contributors, not to us. Their main concern is which of the two parties we select with our votes. What we see as the choice between two evils, the winning majority will see as an endorsement to direct our government to further increase their partys reach and power. A division of power between the two parties gives us our current gridlock government. Obtaining a convention request from 34 state legislatures would take a dedicated effort by a large number of motivated people in each of our 50 states. But the Tea Party may be the group that can get some changes started.

Someday, if were lucky, people will stop thinking of trade as a matter of state policy. Why must Ukraine meaning its politicians sign an agreement with either the EU or Russia? Why cant individual Ukrainians and private Ukrainian companies trade freely with whomever they want? (This question also applies to America and every other country.) There are many sources of political tension in the world, but historically a principal one has been the idea that governments must set the terms of trade with people in other nations. Bad idea. Free trade should mean individual freedom. In the meantime, the Obama administration should steer clear of Ukraine. Despite what Americans have believed for over 200 years, the United States was not placed on this earth to right the world. Intervention is more likely to make things worse than better.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). RICHMANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 they have several members of Congress who have endorsed their concerns on federal spending. All members of the House and 33 members of the Senate will be on all ballots in November. Legislators in 46 states will be on their local ballots. If every candidate for every state or federal legislative seat was required to discuss their position on a Constitutional Convention, then the idea of a convention will be implanted. Maybe even the media will take notice. The media recently announced, with joy, that the Tea Party was dead. Hopefully, grass root efforts by independent voters will never die. We dont have a Tea Party chapter here in Ocala. Is there anyone interested in creating one? Bill Farthing, OcalaCrows not birds of prey I recently read an article which stated, Crows are a bird of prey. The American Crow, Corvus imparatus, is not a predator, but a scavenger. They will eat small rodents, frogs, LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 bugs and eggs, but birds of prey never. One must be able to identify a bird of prey. Theyre often called raptors, and in our back yard trees, we have a pair of great horned owls, Bubo virginianus, birds of prey/raptors, and the largest of all owls. A bird of prey has a hooked beak for tearing, such as the owls, and eagles. One of the most aggressive predators, is a breed of sea gull, of which few are aware or have seen. Its a South Polar Scua, Catharacta maccormicki. They can migrate as far North as the Georgia Coast, where I saw a pair along with a Marine Biologist, with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, on St. Simons Island. Its a large gray and black gull with a hooked beak, and I can tell you when a pair is in the area, you will see no birds of any species, as far as the eye can see. As I said, birds of prey have a hooked beak for tearing its prey, and a crow doesnt. Now, crows are really a nuisance but they wont scare smaller birds away. We have a bird feeder, suet, and bird bath in our back yard, and at any time well have 5-10 birds of all species on the feeder, and at the same time we may also have as many as 4-6 crows in the area. Woodpeckers and Blue Jays will scare the smaller birds away much quicker. Weve had two hatchlings of black capped chickadees, and two hatchlings of cardinals in our birdhouses in the last two years, and the young did survive quite well, and were not bothered by other birds, including crows. Weve had as many a 27 species of birds in our back yard. Again, I dislike crows as much as any other nuisance bird, such as starlings and blue jays, but I guess we must live with them, after all it is nature. But, when one discusses anything they should know of what they speak. Wikipedia doesnt always have all the answers, and if you rely on it solely for information, youre in trouble. Being a wildlife artist/sculptor, primarily of waterfowl, with my work all over the world, there are many more species of birds which I find as annoying, and leave quite a mess, such as cattle egrets, and geese. Bill Ford Oak Run Please use our e-mail: editor@smcitizen.com In most English speaking countries this last Tuesday was Shrove Tuesday, also commonly known as Pancake Day or Pancake Tuesday due to the tradition of eating pancakes on the day preceding Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. In the U.S., IHOP celebrates National Pancake Day by giving everyone a free short stack of pancakes. In return for the free pancakes, customers are asked to consider leaving a donation for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals or other designated local charities.

When asked to describe his two loves, he noted that one was a great poet and the other made delicious pancakes. Oh said the counselor, I see what the problem is. You cant decide whether to marry for batter or verse.Illegal juiceThen there was the time my brother and I went to a local pancake house.

Theres been milk, eggs and flour in the supermarket shelves for months now. A lot of pancake-making puns are really pour.

Haunted French pancakes give me the crapes. Pancake Day is only day of the year where hitting the ceiling is just considered a bad toss. My friend has claimed shes made a Picasso inspired cubist pancake, but I think shes just waffling. In honor of Pancake Day, we were listening to musicians who played flat.

Ihave been going to church for more years than I care to remember. If I tried to remember how many years it is, I might then remember how old I am. Knowing how old I am does not have any appeal to me. I rather like going to church. I do not go to church because I have to. I go to church because it is a wonderful place and it is filled with wonderful people. Are there hypocrites in the church? Yes, a whole lot more. You would be surprised at the people that go to church. No matter how crazy you might be, I am sure there will be somebody to relate to in any church you go to. Church is not for the perfect, just for those who love the Lord. I think I could make myself comfortable in any Christian church. I do not always have to amend my thinking. Lately I had to amend this thinking that I could make myself comfortable in any Christian church. In the news recently was the snake handling church in Kentucky. These people believe that you can pick up a poisonous snake and if it bites you, it will not kill you. I know the Scripture they use for that, but I am not sure they understand what that Scripture really means. Someone said to a friend of mine, You mean that if God told you to pick up a snake you wouldnt do it? Without any hesitation, my friend said, He hasnt and I aint. The fact that the minister of that church died from a snakebite might bring into question the validity of what they believe. Go ahead; play with a poisonous snake in church if you want to. Me, I let those things alone and I pray they let me alone. I would not feel comfortable in that church I am sure. Then I learned of some other church. I guess in America, there are all kinds of churches for all kinds of people. And in America sanity is not a prerequisite of anything, just look at our politicians. I guess the only thing more insane today than politicians are some preachers, and I happen to be a preacher, hopefully not of the insanity kind. One of my goals is to keep my insanity at a low level every day that I live so nobody really sees it. Then I learned of a church in Virginia. I have often had a lot of respect for Virginia and visited quite a few times. Some great men and even presidents have come from the state of Virginia. You can imagine how alarmed I was to hear about this new church. When somebody told me about it, I thought they were saying it was a Knewest church. I never heard of such a thing. My question quite naturally was, what is it that these people knew. I am constantly open for any new information so my curiosity went up. Then my friend pulled out his smart phone and showed me a videotape that was on the news about this church. It was not a Knewest church but rather a nudist church. When I watched it, I laughed because I believed my friend was playing a prank on me. There are stupid people in the world, I admit, but I think even stupidity has a limit. He finally convinced me that this was a real news story of a real nudist church in Virginia. Fortunately, the people who produced this video for the news strategically blurred out certain parts of the video of which I am everlastingly thankful. It is a legitimate church and the motto, according to the pastor, is that they do not want to judge people by the clothing they are wearing. Really! How about judging people by the clothing they are not wearing? I have a hard time seeing through that kind of theology. I like to get down to the bare facts, but this is absolutely incredulous. Of course, it does save a lot of time in the morning trying to figure out what you are going to wear to church. You do not have to look at several neckties to see which one fits with this suit. Apart from the sheer ridiculousness Chur ch just ain t wha t it used t o be Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder of this sort of matter, one matter truly annoys me. Where do they keep their offering? On second thought, I do not want to know. Then a brilliant idea sloshed its way through the corridors of my mind. What if these two congregations had a convention together? The snake handlers and the nudist churches get together for an annual convention. Can you imagine the craziness of such a thing as that? Then I got to thinking about it again. That would be grossly unfair to the snakes. Who in the world would they bite first? On the other hand, would they grow legs and run for the nearest door? I remembered what Jesus said to Peter referring to the church. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it (Matthew 16:18). The church does not belong to men or any one man. It belongs exclusively to God. The more churches look like the world around it the less pleasing it is to Jesus, the head of the church. resident or a guest of a resident, you are invited to come to Palm Grove to participate in an afternoon of watching the Run for the Roses (Kentucky Derby).

Friday, March 7, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, March 7, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Its the same old question akin to the proverbial: What came first, the chicken or the egg? When one of my readers in Citrus County posed it to me, I thought it would make for a provocative column. So here it is, the question everybody loves to ask: Are Jews a people or a religion? The answer, my dear Watson, is not so elementary. There are many factors at play here and of course with two Jews you get three opinions but from my humble point of view of a liberal Jewish woman living in the State of Florida, I wish to offer the following. If you were to examine the liturgy, you would find references to the Jewish people all over the siddur (prayer book). Each branch of Judaism publishes its own version with their specialized translations of the original Hebrew according to the dictates of their movement. While the liberal branches will be gender neutral in terms of pronouns for God, the more traditional texts will still use the masculine. Despite these and other subtle differences, Jews are still referred to as the Jewish people or the people of Israel or Gods people or Your people (referring to God). There is definitely a relationship here between a specific group of people (nation) and the rest of the peoples of the world. That relationship that Jews have with God is in the form of a covenant or agreement, God will be Israels God and Israel will do Gods bidding. The ancient Israelites who morphed into todays Jews, were given a set of laws, the Ten Commandments and the Torah (Five Books of Moses) with all its laws and precepts in order to live a moral and just life. Jews are the vehicle for these laws, a nation to show others how to live in peace and harmony. When you are considered a nation, then you have a country, customs and folkways to call your own. Jews have all of these things. The State of Israel is the Jewish homeland and the customs and laws of Judaism are the law of the land. Here is where things get interesting. Judaism is a religion. Religion by definition is a set of spiritual beliefs complete with rituals, taboos and liturgy. Judaism is so a part of the Jewish psyche that you cannot separate the two. Even secular Jews will observe Shabbat in their own way; it is part of the customs of belonging to the Jewish people. Can you be a member of the Jewish people and be a non-practicing Jew? The answer is yes, you would be considered a secular Jew because if your mother (some branches say father) was Jewish so are you a member of the Jewish people. Here peoplehood seems to trump religion. You are a member of the Jewish people even if all you do for Purim is eat Hamantashen or just attend a seder on Passover. You are also considered Jewish if you faithfully observe the commandments (mitzvot) and lead religious services. You also bond with the Jewish people by supporting Zionist causes and attending Jewish functions such as concerts or book reviews on Jewish topics. Jews are a close knit group of people, a community where even on the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, prayers for forgiveness are recited in the plural. Mordecai Kaplan, the founder of the liberal Jewish movement, Reconstructionism, called Judaism a living religious civilization. He saw Judaism as not just a religion but more of a civilization, that is a group of people living together sharing similar values, music, art, food and religion. All of this describes the Jewish people. Where would we be without our distinctive food based on our specialized dietary laws, our music, art and even our way of dress? All these things characterize us as a nation and make us distinctive from others around us. Even our concept of holiness revolves around the idea of separateness, for example, taking an object, such as wine, and consecrating it to a higher purpose as Jews do on the Sabbath. So how can you be part of the Jewish people when you are Asian, African, Native American or other nationality or race? Here religion trumps nationality and so we have Jewish Africans such as the ones from Ethiopia, Chinese Jews and Native Americans who are members of both tribes! It is entirely up to you if you are an American Jew or a Jewish American because Judaism is a religion and being a Jew does not make you part of a race since Jews can be of any race or color. Despite Hitlers attempts to prove otherwise with his racial purity of the Aryan race and ridiculous caricatures of Jewish noses as a Jewish racial trait, Jews are descendants from Semite tribes (hence our term anti-Semite for being against Jews) and since they were exiled by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.E., they have been scattered The Jewish people Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE12 This is my first column and I would like to say thank you for all the support I have received. I did not realize how many residents would be happy to have a writer for the Oak Run news in the Citizen. I would like to thank Carol Wheeler for all the years she took care of writing the events for our community. Now for all the activities around a great community. Be sure and get involved. Laura Veterans AssociationOn Wednesday, March 19 at 7 p.m. at the Orchid Club, the Oak Run Veterans Association, will have as it guest speaker Jay Carmichael, a survivor of the Battle of the Bulge, who will speak how his faith got him through his being captured by the Germans. This is a rare opportunity to hear his story in person. All residents are invited to attend this meeting. The Veterans Association motto is To keep the memories alive and foster patriotism.Performing Arts at Oak RunThe performing arts club of Oak Run is experiencing advance ticket sales for its spring production of Rexs Exes that outpace previous years sales. Howard Spies, publicist for the group, says, Our clubs productions are the perfect way to get out and say hello to neighbors in a very easy social setting. Many use the play productions to introduce visiting friends, family, and friends from Ocala-proper, to our beautiful neighborhood. The weather leading up to the play has not, other than relatively, been so great; so, I think theres a lot of pent up demand to get out of the house and enjoy an event or two. Our early April show dates will, no doubt, be amidst the spring-clad Palm Grove. Accommodations are made for all, and theres a nice long break in the short production. If special seating arrangements are needed, you may arrive early and have the help of one or more of our fleet of ushers. Behind the scenes, the clubs handymen are preparing to amaze with a set that functions and provides a view into the everyday of life of the cousins. Included are a swinging door that stands up to some rough action and for much of the play: a living room suited to the Battle of the Bulge survivor to speak to Oak Run group Oak Run Laura Smith much-maligned, yet prominent, Verdeen family of Sweetgum, Texas. Bob Kreider, Art Schmidt, Hal Weber, Bruce McDuffee, Dick Caza and Franco Piscitelli bring a full complement of construction and handyman skills to this and other performances. We could not do what we do without these guys tremendous skill and patience. Youre taking someone very technically adept as well as creative to put our sets together, said Garth Markum, Director. Weve just been in receipt of one, rather puzzling, dispatch from Sweetgum, Texas this week: Verla Kay Askew submits: DONT count on any vacancies soon in the Daughters of the Nation of Texas roster. Rumors of my demise have been greatly overstated; besides, there will never be room for an ex-convict in hallowed legacy of our society. Tickets are available through club members listed on the communitys public access channel and in the newsletter. The dinner theater will feature prime rib and seats are selling fast.New England ClubThe New England Club is having a Pajama Party on March 20 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Orchard Club.

And so our answer to our question is that being a Jew makes you part of a people as well as a member of a specific religion. In truth, the way Jews think, act and pray and face life are so a part of us as a people. We have our own languages, Ladino and Yiddish and our holy tongue of Hebrew. And while we share many of our values with other groups, I still believe that nobody can play a violin like a Jew and if you want to win a case, get a Jewish lawyer from New York. Kidding aside, our tradition teaches us that God and the Jewish people are one. That means that Jewish peoplehood and religion are one. Next question, please.

RUNNER By Patrick LeeIn Runner Patrick Lee serves up something different for jaded readers out there. A retired Black Ops, Houdini-like escape artist named Sam Dryden meets up with a terrified 11-year-old mind-reading girl being chased by government agents intent on killing her. What began as a peaceful 3 a.m. stroll on the beach for Sam turns into the fight of his life as he tries to protect the child. This is a high-tech thriller with a sci-fi edge and paranormal overtones. Its packed with fast-moving scenes at breakneck speed, a frightening scenario that Lee manages to make plausible. Once the two have evaded her pursuers, Rachel recounts how shes been held in prison at Fort Dietrich because she possesses a skill that makes her dangerous. Theres little time to hear more as government forces hurl every tracking means against the pair, including satellites and Black Hawk helicopters. Finally, they think themselves safe in a remote cabin in Sequoia National Park, a place known only to Sam or so he thought when an armed man shows up at the cabin door. In a fraction of a second it took Dryden to understand, everything changed. From a sitting position beside Rachel, Dryden threw his body at the shelf next to the door and had the SIG SAUER in his hand an instant later. He braced a palm on the door frame and shoved himself backward, dropping to a shooters stance in the middle of the floor. Shots rang out. The dead man was a uniformed cop. The idea that the government could use people as weapons and then dispose of them without a thought is a chilling one that Lee develops convincingly. Runner has complex but strong believable characters and interesting shifts in points of view. Although Sam Dryden is propelled out of his comfortable retirement, his was a life only half lived since the deaths of his wife and daughter. A page-turning, adrenaline rush from a new writer.

Friday, March 7, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, March 7, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Staying active as we age is very important. It makes us feel better, have more energy, and likely stay more healthy. This helps us be able to do what we want when we want. We all want to live as full a life as possible. How well we age has a lot to do with how we function physically. We do better when we take a walk, use the exercise equipment in the gym, and/or join an exercise class in doors or in the pool. Active aging also includes functioning as well as possible mentally. Going to Master the Possibilities classes is a great way to learn new subjects or brush up on partly forgotten ones.Tribute to Billy JoelTurnstiles, the ultimate tribute to Billy Joel, will perform at the Circle Square Cultural Center on Saturday, March 29 at 7 p.m. Tony Monaco, the lead vocalist, never intended to be a Billy Joel impersonator; it was his passion for the piano and his fascination of Joels music that drove him to want to recreate this magical rock n roll style.

Friday, March 7, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, March 7, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Staying active as we age is very important. It makes us feel better, have more energy, and likely stay more healthy. This helps us be able to do what we want when we want. We all want to live as full a life as possible. How well we age has a lot to do with how we function physically. We do better when we take a walk, use the exercise equipment in the gym, and/or join an exercise class in doors or in the pool. Active aging also includes functioning as well as possible mentally. Going to Master the Possibilities classes is a great way to learn new subjects or brush up on partly forgotten ones.Tribute to Billy JoelTurnstiles, the ultimate tribute to Billy Joel, will perform at the Circle Square Cultural Center on Saturday, March 29 at 7 p.m. Tony Monaco, the lead vocalist, never intended to be a Billy Joel impersonator; it was his passion for the piano and his fascination of Joels music that drove him to want to recreate this magical rock n roll style.

Friday, March 7, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, March 7, 2014 www.smcitizen.com all over the world assimilating into the worlds cultures. And so our answer to our question is that being a Jew makes you part of a people as well as a member of a specific religion. In truth, the way Jews think, act and pray and face life are so a part of us as a people. We have our own languages, Ladino and Yiddish and our holy tongue of Hebrew. And while we share many of our values with other groups, I still believe that nobody can play a violin like a Jew and if you want to win a case, get a Jewish lawyer from New York. Kidding aside, our tradition teaches us that God and the Jewish people are one. That means that Jewish peoplehood and religion are one. Next question, please. JUDICONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 BY JEAN DIPIERO Special to the CitizenIndigo East held a Taste of Tuscany dinner on Sunday, March 2. The Community Center was filled with the wonderful aroma of pasta, sauce and sausage. Along with the meal, guests had salad with dressing of their choice as well as garlic bread. After consuming this delicious meal there were many desserts to choose from. There were a variety of pies, carrot, chocolate and clair cake, cookies along with soda and coffee to drink. Buon appetito!!!! The tables were decorated with red and white checker board tablecloths and the centerpieces were foiled red stars and foiled green flowers.

Taste of Tuscany at Indigo East Some of those attending the Taste of Tuscany dinner at Indigo East. Marla and Joe Ziino of Indigo East. RUNNER By Patrick LeeIn Runner Patrick Lee serves up something different for jaded readers out there. A retired Black Ops, Houdini-like escape artist named Sam Dryden meets up with a terrified 11-year-old mind-reading girl being chased by government agents intent on killing her. What began as a peaceful 3 a.m. stroll on the beach for Sam turns into the fight of his life as he tries to protect the child. This is a high-tech thriller with a sci-fi edge and paranormal overtones. Its packed with fast-moving scenes at breakneck speed, a frightening scenario that Lee manages to make plausible. Once the two have evaded her pursuers, Rachel recounts how shes been held in prison at Fort Dietrich because she possesses a skill that makes her dangerous. Theres little time to hear more as government forces hurl every tracking means against the pair, including satellites and Black Hawk helicopters. Finally, they think themselves safe in a remote cabin in Sequoia National Park, a place known only to Sam or so he thought when an armed man shows up at the cabin door. In a fraction of a second it took Dryden to understand, everything changed. From a sitting position beside Rachel, Dryden threw his body at the shelf next to the door and had the SIG SAUER in his hand an instant later. He braced a palm on the door frame and shoved himself backward, dropping to a shooters stance in the middle of the floor. Shots rang out. The dead man was a uniformed cop. The idea that the government could use people as weapons and then dispose of them without a thought is a chilling one that Lee develops convincingly. Runner has complex but strong believable characters and interesting shifts in points of view. Although Sam Dryden is propelled out of his comfortable retirement, his was a life only half lived since the deaths of his wife and daughter. A page-turning, adrenaline rush from a new writer.

Friday, March 7, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, March 7, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Its the same old question akin to the proverbial: What came first, the chicken or the egg? When one of my readers in Citrus County posed it to me, I thought it would make for a provocative column. So here it is, the question everybody loves to ask: Are Jews a people or a religion? The answer, my dear Watson, is not so elementary. There are many factors at play here and of course with two Jews you get three opinions but from my humble point of view of a liberal Jewish woman living in the State of Florida, I wish to offer the following. If you were to examine the liturgy, you would find references to the Jewish people all over the siddur (prayer book). Each branch of Judaism publishes its own version with their specialized translations of the original Hebrew according to the dictates of their movement. While the liberal branches will be gender neutral in terms of pronouns for God, the more traditional texts will still use the masculine. Despite these and other subtle differences, Jews are still referred to as the Jewish people or the people of Israel or Gods people or Your people (referring to God). There is definitely a relationship here between a specific group of people (nation) and the rest of the peoples of the world. That relationship that Jews have with God is in the form of a covenant or agreement, God will be Israels God and Israel will do Gods bidding. The ancient Israelites who morphed into todays Jews, were given a set of laws, the Ten Commandments and the Torah (Five Books of Moses) with all its laws and precepts in order to live a moral and just life. Jews are the vehicle for these laws, a nation to show others how to live in peace and harmony. When you are considered a nation, then you have a country, customs and folkways to call your own. Jews have all of these things. The State of Israel is the Jewish homeland and the customs and laws of Judaism are the law of the land. Here is where things get interesting. Judaism is a religion. Religion by definition is a set of spiritual beliefs complete with rituals, taboos and liturgy. Judaism is so a part of the Jewish psyche that you cannot separate the two. Even secular Jews will observe Shabbat in their own way; it is part of the customs of belonging to the Jewish people. Can you be a member of the Jewish people and be a non-practicing Jew? The answer is yes, you would be considered a secular Jew because if your mother (some branches say father) was Jewish so are you a member of the Jewish people. Here peoplehood seems to trump religion. You are a member of the Jewish people even if all you do for Purim is eat Hamantashen or just attend a seder on Passover. You are also considered Jewish if you faithfully observe the commandments (mitzvot) and lead religious services. You also bond with the Jewish people by supporting Zionist causes and attending Jewish functions such as concerts or book reviews on Jewish topics. Jews are a close knit group of people, a community where even on the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, prayers for forgiveness are recited in the plural. Mordecai Kaplan, the founder of the liberal Jewish movement, Reconstructionism, called Judaism a living religious civilization. He saw Judaism as not just a religion but more of a civilization, that is a group of people living together sharing similar values, music, art, food and religion. All of this describes the Jewish people. Where would we be without our distinctive food based on our specialized dietary laws, our music, art and even our way of dress? All these things characterize us as a nation and make us distinctive from others around us. Even our concept of holiness revolves around the idea of separateness, for example, taking an object, such as wine, and consecrating it to a higher purpose as Jews do on the Sabbath. So how can you be part of the Jewish people when you are Asian, African, Native American or other nationality or race? Here religion trumps nationality and so we have Jewish Africans such as the ones from Ethiopia, Chinese Jews and Native Americans who are members of both tribes! It is entirely up to you if you are an American Jew or a Jewish American because Judaism is a religion and being a Jew does not make you part of a race since Jews can be of any race or color. Despite Hitlers attempts to prove otherwise with his racial purity of the Aryan race and ridiculous caricatures of Jewish noses as a Jewish racial trait, Jews are descendants from Semite tribes (hence our term anti-Semite for being against Jews) and since they were exiled by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.E., they have been scattered The Jewish people Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE12 This is my first column and I would like to say thank you for all the support I have received. I did not realize how many residents would be happy to have a writer for the Oak Run news in the Citizen. I would like to thank Carol Wheeler for all the years she took care of writing the events for our community. Now for all the activities around a great community. Be sure and get involved. Laura Veterans AssociationOn Wednesday, March 19 at 7 p.m. at the Orchid Club, the Oak Run Veterans Association, will have as it guest speaker Jay Carmichael, a survivor of the Battle of the Bulge, who will speak how his faith got him through his being captured by the Germans. This is a rare opportunity to hear his story in person. All residents are invited to attend this meeting. The Veterans Association motto is To keep the memories alive and foster patriotism.Performing Arts at Oak RunThe performing arts club of Oak Run is experiencing advance ticket sales for its spring production of Rexs Exes that outpace previous years sales. Howard Spies, publicist for the group, says, Our clubs productions are the perfect way to get out and say hello to neighbors in a very easy social setting. Many use the play productions to introduce visiting friends, family, and friends from Ocala-proper, to our beautiful neighborhood. The weather leading up to the play has not, other than relatively, been so great; so, I think theres a lot of pent up demand to get out of the house and enjoy an event or two. Our early April show dates will, no doubt, be amidst the spring-clad Palm Grove. Accommodations are made for all, and theres a nice long break in the short production. If special seating arrangements are needed, you may arrive early and have the help of one or more of our fleet of ushers. Behind the scenes, the clubs handymen are preparing to amaze with a set that functions and provides a view into the everyday of life of the cousins. Included are a swinging door that stands up to some rough action and for much of the play: a living room suited to the Battle of the Bulge survivor to speak to Oak Run group Oak Run Laura Smith much-maligned, yet prominent, Verdeen family of Sweetgum, Texas. Bob Kreider, Art Schmidt, Hal Weber, Bruce McDuffee, Dick Caza and Franco Piscitelli bring a full complement of construction and handyman skills to this and other performances. We could not do what we do without these guys tremendous skill and patience. Youre taking someone very technically adept as well as creative to put our sets together, said Garth Markum, Director. Weve just been in receipt of one, rather puzzling, dispatch from Sweetgum, Texas this week: Verla Kay Askew submits: DONT count on any vacancies soon in the Daughters of the Nation of Texas roster. Rumors of my demise have been greatly overstated; besides, there will never be room for an ex-convict in hallowed legacy of our society.

Ihave been going to church for more years than I care to remember. If I tried to remember how many years it is, I might then remember how old I am. Knowing how old I am does not have any appeal to me. I rather like going to church. I do not go to church because I have to. I go to church because it is a wonderful place and it is filled with wonderful people. Are there hypocrites in the church? Yes, a whole lot more. You would be surprised at the people that go to church. No matter how crazy you might be, I am sure there will be somebody to relate to in any church you go to. Church is not for the perfect, just for those who love the Lord. I think I could make myself comfortable in any Christian church. I do not always have to amend my thinking. Lately I had to amend this thinking that I could make myself comfortable in any Christian church. In the news recently was the snake handling church in Kentucky. These people believe that you can pick up a poisonous snake and if it bites you, it will not kill you. I know the Scripture they use for that, but I am not sure they understand what that Scripture really means. Someone said to a friend of mine, You mean that if God told you to pick up a snake you wouldnt do it? Without any hesitation, my friend said, He hasnt and I aint. The fact that the minister of that church died from a snakebite might bring into question the validity of what they believe. Go ahead; play with a poisonous snake in church if you want to. Me, I let those things alone and I pray they let me alone. I would not feel comfortable in that church I am sure. Then I learned of some other church. I guess in America, there are all kinds of churches for all kinds of people. And in America sanity is not a prerequisite of anything, just look at our politicians. I guess the only thing more insane today than politicians are some preachers, and I happen to be a preacher, hopefully not of the insanity kind. One of my goals is to keep my insanity at a low level every day that I live so nobody really sees it. Then I learned of a church in Virginia. I have often had a lot of respect for Virginia and visited quite a few times. Some great men and even presidents have come from the state of Virginia. You can imagine how alarmed I was to hear about this new church. When somebody told me about it, I thought they were saying it was a Knewest church. I never heard of such a thing. My question quite naturally was, what is it that these people knew. I am constantly open for any new information so my curiosity went up. Then my friend pulled out his smart phone and showed me a videotape that was on the news about this church. It was not a Knewest church but rather a nudist church. When I watched it, I laughed because I believed my friend was playing a prank on me. There are stupid people in the world, I admit, but I think even stupidity has a limit. He finally convinced me that this was a real news story of a real nudist church in Virginia. Fortunately, the people who produced this video for the news strategically blurred out certain parts of the video of which I am everlastingly thankful. It is a legitimate church and the motto, according to the pastor, is that they do not want to judge people by the clothing they are wearing. Really! How about judging people by the clothing they are not wearing? I have a hard time seeing through that kind of theology. I like to get down to the bare facts, but this is absolutely incredulous. Of course, it does save a lot of time in the morning trying to figure out what you are going to wear to church. You do not have to look at several neckties to see which one fits with this suit. Apart from the sheer ridiculousness Chur ch just ain t wha t it used t o be Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder of this sort of matter, one matter truly annoys me. Where do they keep their offering? On second thought, I do not want to know. Then a brilliant idea sloshed its way through the corridors of my mind. What if these two congregations had a convention together? The snake handlers and the nudist churches get together for an annual convention. Can you imagine the craziness of such a thing as that? Then I got to thinking about it again. That would be grossly unfair to the snakes. Who in the world would they bite first? On the other hand, would they grow legs and run for the nearest door? I remembered what Jesus said to Peter referring to the church. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it (Matthew 16:18). The church does not belong to men or any one man. It belongs exclusively to God. The more churches look like the world around it the less pleasing it is to Jesus, the head of the church. resident or a guest of a resident, you are invited to come to Palm Grove to participate in an afternoon of watching the Run for the Roses (Kentucky Derby).

Someday, if were lucky, people will stop thinking of trade as a matter of state policy. Why must Ukraine meaning its politicians sign an agreement with either the EU or Russia? Why cant individual Ukrainians and private Ukrainian companies trade freely with whomever they want? (This question also applies to America and every other country.) There are many sources of political tension in the world, but historically a principal one has been the idea that governments must set the terms of trade with people in other nations. Bad idea. Free trade should mean individual freedom. In the meantime, the Obama administration should steer clear of Ukraine. Despite what Americans have believed for over 200 years, the United States was not placed on this earth to right the world. Intervention is more likely to make things worse than better.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). RICHMANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 they have several members of Congress who have endorsed their concerns on federal spending. All members of the House and 33 members of the Senate will be on all ballots in November. Legislators in 46 states will be on their local ballots. If every candidate for every state or federal legislative seat was required to discuss their position on a Constitutional Convention, then the idea of a convention will be implanted. Maybe even the media will take notice. The media recently announced, with joy, that the Tea Party was dead. Hopefully, grass root efforts by independent voters will never die. We dont have a Tea Party chapter here in Ocala. Is there anyone interested in creating one? Bill Farthing, OcalaCrows not birds of prey I recently read an article which stated, Crows are a bird of prey. The American Crow, Corvus imparatus, is not a predator, but a scavenger. They will eat small rodents, frogs, LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 bugs and eggs, but birds of prey never. One must be able to identify a bird of prey. Theyre often called raptors, and in our back yard trees, we have a pair of great horned owls, Bubo virginianus, birds of prey/raptors, and the largest of all owls. A bird of prey has a hooked beak for tearing, such as the owls, and eagles. One of the most aggressive predators, is a breed of sea gull, of which few are aware or have seen. Its a South Polar Scua, Catharacta maccormicki. They can migrate as far North as the Georgia Coast, where I saw a pair along with a Marine Biologist, with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, on St. Simons Island. Its a large gray and black gull with a hooked beak, and I can tell you when a pair is in the area, you will see no birds of any species, as far as the eye can see. As I said, birds of prey have a hooked beak for tearing its prey, and a crow doesnt. Now, crows are really a nuisance but they wont scare smaller birds away. We have a bird feeder, suet, and bird bath in our back yard, and at any time well have 5-10 birds of all species on the feeder, and at the same time we may also have as many as 4-6 crows in the area. Woodpeckers and Blue Jays will scare the smaller birds away much quicker. Weve had two hatchlings of black capped chickadees, and two hatchlings of cardinals in our birdhouses in the last two years, and the young did survive quite well, and were not bothered by other birds, including crows. Weve had as many a 27 species of birds in our back yard. Again, I dislike crows as much as any other nuisance bird, such as starlings and blue jays, but I guess we must live with them, after all it is nature. But, when one discusses anything they should know of what they speak. Wikipedia doesnt always have all the answers, and if you rely on it solely for information, youre in trouble. Being a wildlife artist/sculptor, primarily of waterfowl, with my work all over the world, there are many more species of birds which I find as annoying, and leave quite a mess, such as cattle egrets, and geese. Bill Ford Oak Run Please use our e-mail: editor@smcitizen.com In most English speaking countries this last Tuesday was Shrove Tuesday, also commonly known as Pancake Day or Pancake Tuesday due to the tradition of eating pancakes on the day preceding Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. In the U.S., IHOP celebrates National Pancake Day by giving everyone a free short stack of pancakes. In return for the free pancakes, customers are asked to consider leaving a donation for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals or other designated local charities. While enjoying my pancakes on Tuesday, I heard a few stories for you.LoverA young man was in love with two women and could not decide which of them to marry. Finally he went to a marriage counselor. When asked to describe his two loves, he noted that one was a great poet and the other made delicious pancakes. Oh said the counselor, I see what the problem is. You cant decide whether to marry for batter or verse.Illegal juiceThen there was the time my brother and I went to a local pancake house. This place served real Vermont maple syrup but charged extra for it. We took a trip to the supermarket and bought our own bottle. Not wanting to get caught, we were forced to pass it between us syrupticiously.Short stacksThe commercialization of Pancake Day is unbelievable. Theres been milk, eggs and flour in the supermarket shelves for months now. A lot of pancake-making puns are really pour. Whether its a pancake or a baseball team, the secret is to start with a good batter. On April Fools Day, a girl put a firecracker under the pancakes. She blew her stack. Haunted French pancakes give me the crapes. Pancake Day is only day of the year where hitting the ceiling is just considered a bad toss. My friend has claimed shes made a Picasso inspired cubist pancake, but I think shes just waffling. In honor of Pancake Day, we were listening to musicians who played flat. One pancake said to the other pancake, See you on the flip side. Two eggs, a sausage, and a pancake walked into a bar. The bartender said, Sorry, we dont serve breakfast. The dogs nose is flatter than a pancake. He got it from chasing parked cars. The politicians were really at it this last week, so its also National Waffle Week. Waffle iron? Why on earth would you want to iron a waffle? No matter how bad the appetizer is in a German restaurant, the wurst is yet to come.TypicalMary offered to care for the eightyear-old daughter of neighbors who were going away for the weekend. On Saturday morning, she made breakfast, laying a generous portion of bacon and eggs in front of the child. Mummy always serves hot pancakes for breakfast, said the child. So Mary, very eager to oblige, hurried into the kitchen and quickly prepared some pancakes, which she laid in front of the girl. No, thank you, she said. But I thought you said your mother always has hot pancakes for breakfast! said Mary in surprise. She does, said the child. But I dont eat them!Full serviceA trucker came into a truck stop cafe and placed his order. He said, I want three flat tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running boards. The new waitress, not wanting to appear stupid, went to the kitchen and said to the cook, The trucker out there just ordered three flat tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running boards. What does he think this place is, an auto parts store? No, the cook said. Three flat tires mean three pancakes, a pair of headlights is two eggs sunny side up, and running boards are 2 slices of crisp bacon. Oh, OK! said the waitress.

Friday, March 7, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, March 7, 2014 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenPresident Obama insists he does not regard the conflict in Ukraine as some Cold War chessboard in which we are in competition with Russia. Hed be more credible if he were not following his predecessors in acting as though the Cold War still exists. Although the Soviet empire, including its Warsaw Pact alliance, disbanded beginning in 1989, Republican and Democratic presidents have pursued aggressively anti-Russian policies up to the present. Most glaringly, NATO, the Western alliance created after World War II ostensibly to deter a Soviet invasion of Western Europe, did not also disband. On the contrary, at U.S. insistence and in violation of promises to Russias leaders, the alliance has grown and found new missions, such as intervening militarily against Russias ally Serbia and in Afghanistan and Libya. That would have been bad enough, but former members of the Soviet bloc, as well as former Soviet republics, have been admitted to NATO: Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia. Besides that, U.S. officials have talked up two other former Soviet republics, Georgia and surprise! Ukraine, as potential members of the alliance. Moreover, the U.S. government had a hand in the Georgian and Ukrainian color revolutions, which brought pro-U.S. politicians to power, at least for a time. The Obama administration is still at it today. The hostile push of NATO up to the doorstep of Russia (along with other threatening measures) has not gone unnoticed in Moscow. One can imagine the howls wed hear from American politicians, not least of all the ever-belligerent Sen. John McCain, if Russia were doing something similar in the vicinity of the United States. The sorry fact is that Americas rulers did much more than spike the football when the Soviet Union peacefully disintegrated. In every conceivable way, they exploited the occasion to assure that the United States would maintain its status as sole superpower and global hegemon. They humiliated Russias leadership, apparently not caring that it would never passively accept the insult. Its about time American politicians saw how their foreign policies look to those on the receiving end. Whats happening in Ukraine is sad. The country is divided between those who want closer ties to Western Europe and those who want closer ties to Russia. Since becoming independent of Russia, Ukraine has suffered corruption and worse offenses at the hands of legal plunderers. Now demonstrations in the streets even mob rule featuring neo-Nazis have resulted in turmoil and death, and the Russia-leaning president, Viktor Yanukovich, has fled the capital, while the parliament has named an interim replacement. To make things worse, outsiders wont keep their hands off. One thing we can know for sure and one need not be an admirer of Russian president Vladimir Putin to see it is that the United States should steer clear of Ukraine. It is none of the U.S. governments business whether that country is economically closer to Russia or the European Union (EU). The Obama administration should not only forswear direct and covert intervention, it should also shut up. American presidents must learn to mind their own business, even where Russia is concerned. Two weeks ago we talked about Richie Incognito of the Miami Dolphins and his apparent hazing of a rookie teammate, hazing that had racial overtones. There has been much debate over the past few months about those activities, but last week it was discovered that Incognito was being treated for mental issues at an undisclosed facility. If only it were that easy to get bullies out of the way. The Dolphins issue raised the bar in discussions of bullying as people everywhere discussed what could be done about it. In my experience, not much at least in the past. I still suffer bad memories from the days when I was a victim at Don Bosco High School in Ramsey, New Jersey. When I was a freshman, I was bullied unmercifully, mainly on the school bus, and I wasnt alone. All the freshmen on the bus were subject to physical intimidation, being ordered to dogpile on the floor of the bus, and all the while the bus driver, who wanted to be one of the boys, was the perfect imitation of the not-yet-popular Sgt. Schultz of Hogans Heroes: I see nothing. It all happened on the way home. In the morning it was important that when we got to school we would look clean and neat. It was a Catholic boys school, and we had to wear shirts and ties every day. The ties usually came off immediately after the bus pulled out of the parking lot. I started at this particular school because it was just about three miles from home. But shortly after freshman year started, my parents moved us from Ramsey to Tenafly, and I suddenly had to take the bus. I still remember the name of the most prominent instigator of the bullying. Im not sure what I would do if I met him today, more than 50 years later, but I dont think it would be a reunion between long-lost friends. It got so bad that one day in the spring I walked out of school at lunch time, and walked and hitchhiked home. It was near the end of the school year, so my parents, who saw for the first time how upset I was, complained to the school. The next morning one of the two priests who ran the place with iron fists was on the bus, and this only added to the determination of the upperclassmen to pick on the freshmen when they had the chance. We hear a lot how bullying victims should tell someone, but I can tell you first-hand that isnt always a solution. Finally the school year ended, and mercifully I didnt have to take the bus the final day. I wanted to transfer to Bergen Catholic my sophomore year, but lacked one class, general science, that BC had for freshmen and Don Bosco didnt. So I went to the public school summer school, Tenafly High, and took science, and my mom also signed me up for another class typing. This turned out to be a decision that had a lifelong effect on me. I was already registered at Tenafly High, and already had a schedule, when Bergen Catholic called and they had a vacancy, since I now qualified. I wasnt sure at that point that I wanted to go there, but, in another good decision, my folks insisted on the Catholic school. It galls me every time I read about the football prowess of my first high school, how they play everywhere, how they often meet Bergen Catholic in state finals. I still, deep down, resent their ignoring of the bullies, and hope they lose every time BCHS plays them. I also wonder how the bus rides are nowadays for the freshmen. I hope its not a situation where they are picked on as much as we were. Maybe our suffering helped clean things up but somehow I have my doubts.

Do not use any other word processing programs. Here we go again. Its one of the least favorite weekends of the year for our bodies as we force ourselves to adjust to the time change. This coming weekend, move your clocks ahead one hour. Daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, which immediately becomes 3 a.m. If you forget to set your clocks ahead, you will probably be late for church Sunday morning. Its amazing how sometimes the human mind controls the body. Its only a one-hour time difference, yet for some reason it takes many people a week or more to adjust to the change. The one good thing that comes out of it is that, several years ago, someone had the good idea to link changing batteries in your smoke detectors to the time change. By making sure the batteries are fresh and operable, you could be saving lives, including your own. Daylight saving (not savings) time means that it will be dark later in the morning, a fact that puts some students in harms way as they wait for their buses in the dark. So if you have to drive early in the morning, make sure you watch out for youngsters heading for school. Of course it also means that there will be an extra hour of daylight in the evening, which means that bedtime for little ones will have to be adjusted, or else parents will face strong objections from youngsters whose bodies wont be ready to go to sleep. There wont even be an adjustment period for students. Spring break in Marion County doesnt start until Friday, March 21. Somehow, we wish that the powers-that-be would just say no more, and keep the time the same all year. Then we would face far fewer adjustments to our lives. But until that happens, take advantage of the sayings that urge you to change your batteries in your smoke detectors (and others, such as carbon monoxide, if you have them). Being careful may mean that youre around to change your clocks back next fall. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Change clocks, smoke detectors Tale of bullying from one who knows Obama should steer clear of Ukraine fighting READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE9 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Tea PartyNoted author Mark Levin, in his 2013 best seller The Liberty Amendments, explains how Article 5 of The Constitution allows two methods for creating a Convention for considering Amendments to the Constitution. The first is a two thirds vote in both houses of Congress and the second is a request, to Congress, by two thirds, or 34 of our state legislatures. All proposed amendments from a Convention must then be approved by three fourth, or 38 of the state legislatures. Levin lists 10 amendments that he believes will return our federal government to the founders principles and to our control. His amendments would include term limits for members of Congress and the Supreme Court, limits on federal spending and taxes, limits on the federal bureaucracy and protection of free enterprise, voting and private property. Our current members of Congress will never voluntarily vote for a Constitutional Convention that would endanger their opportunities for a long lucrative career in Washington. Their loyalty is to their party and their campaign contributors, not to us. Their main concern is which of the two parties we select with our votes. What we see as the choice between two evils, the winning majority will see as an endorsement to direct our government to further increase their partys reach and power. A division of power between the two parties gives us our current gridlock government. Obtaining a convention request from 34 state legislatures would take a dedicated effort by a large number of motivated people in each of our 50 states. But the Tea Party may be the group that can get some changes started. They have a nationwide organization and PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE9 OBrien 3rd Flight: 1st-Kim Hessel, 2nd-Mary Kay Frandsen Diana Galla captured the prize for closest to the pin.

come to the clubhouse at noon for a delicious meal and some fun conversation. Just be sure to also bring a dish to share and a place setting. I find it is such fun to make enough food to share and maybe show off a favorite dish or two. Even if it is purchased at the grocery store. Every dish is appreciated and enjoyed and so is the company of our friends and neighbors.Thermo-Cool SeminarOn March 19 at 11 a.m., there will be a great opportunity for folks to learn how to maintain their A/C system and keep it in great condition for the summer months coming fast. We can do so much ourselves to keep our system in tip top condition. This seminar is well worth the time to prevent the high cost of replacing our systems sooner than necessary. Sashay into the clubhouse and sign up with Geri as she needs a head count. There will also be food involved from Thermo-Cool. How cool is that?Sock HopSaturday, March 22, 7 to 10 p.m., come dance at the clubhouse just for the fun of it. The dance is free to our Cherrywood residents and their guests. No cost to attend, no 50/50 raffle. Bring your drinks, snacks and list of your favorite music to sing along or dance to for our delightful DJ Rich Becotte. Another terrific opportunity to show your new neighbor or guest, what a really great place Cherrywood is, to live.TriviaWednesday, March 19, 7 p.m., you cant imagine the fun until you try it. Easy Peasy to play. How often do we say to another, what is the name of that movie star I liked so much? Hours later you might get the answer. Well, with Trivia you have team partners who can guess the multiple choice answers right along with you. Somebody is bound to get it right. This month the questions will be presented by our real writer, John Everlove. The subjects are, St. Patricks Day, general knowledge, geography, entertainment and sports. Amazing how each subject can produce a laugh and a smile and even a correct answer. Where else can you have so much fun for only $1? Our Trivia players have donated more than $400 to the Wounded Warrior Project in 2013. For 2014, we are supporting Patriot Dogs Charity. Such worthy causes benefit from such a good time. Climb out of your recliner or lawn chair and come join us in our Cherrywood activities. There truly is something for everyone.Yard salesOur Cherrywood Yard Sales this year will be on the first Saturdays in April and October. Our next one will be our spring yard sale on April 5 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dont forget and please do not put your items out the night before, as that can cause problems. Put them out first thing Saturday morning and we hope it will be a wonderful, sunny, productive day. Im sure we have all found that moment when the piece of furniture or knick knack we couldnt live without, has lost its luster and needs to be loved by someone else.Cherrywood ChirpOur Chirp magazine is placed in our buddy box on the 1st of every month. To all of our new neighbors, and some not so new, you will find all the information you need about the happenings in our wonderful community of Cherrywood. Activities, entertainment, thank you notes, letters from our military. Birthdays, anniversaries, travel opportunities. If you dont find a Chirp rolled up in your buddy box under your mailbox, please get one from Geri in the clubhouse office and tell her to notify the delivery person to leave one in your box. These little magazines are invaluable information to keep track of all the great happenings in our mini spot on the planet. We surely dont want to miss the opportunity to meet and get to know our neighbors. Thats why we live in a community instead of alone in the middle of 20 acres. Please check the last page in this months Chirp. There is a Disaster Preparedness Survey that is an important part of life in a community. Fill it out folks, it could save your life. All it takes is a really windy day and a tree on top of a house, to change your life forever.ClubhouseAfter attending a private party in our beautiful Cherrywood Clubhouse recently, I am wondering if most of our residents are aware that it is a great place to entertain and is available to us all for a refundable charge or no charge. What is required is to notify Geri for a reservation and to clean up all that is used, afterward. How nice is that? What a great way to hold a birthday party or anniversary with all your friends and not have to figure out how your own house will hold all the precious people you would like to invite.Just a NoteJust so you readers know, I havent been writing all of this by myself. John has done the writing for the Veterans Club activities and today for the Accordion Club. Geri gives me good outlines of items that need covered. This writing gig has been a team effort. Its been a while since I have really been obligated to do something. I find it pushes me a bit and I like it. I love the idea of periodically filling in for John to give him a break (we love you John) and this requires that I become more aware and active in my own neighborhood. Jim (my own dearly beloved) and I have always deeply appreciated what we have here in Cherrywood.

Invitations also have been extended to the local Republican Party and to the League of Women Voters. The Tampa Bay Times, in an editorial March 2, noted that Gov Scott has pursued a purge of voter rolls that threatened to disenfranchise minority voters; the county elections supervisors revolted. He signed into law restrictions on early voting; the public outcry forced changes. Thus we must exercise eternal vigilance in order to ensure that all eligible voters are able to exercise their right to vote. No matter how well our citizens are served in Marion County problems do occur here and elsewhere. The Friday Forum is open to all who wish to join in civil community dialogue.

Your personal life calls for patience, as a certain matter plays itself out. GEM INI ( May 21 to J une 20) Forget about going all out to impress someone in your personal life.

Chatting over the fence with people walking or bicycling past and sometimes never knowing their names but always knowing their smiles or waves. Our home before was always filled with love and surrounded by wonderful neighbors, but we all worked and were raising families and were on the road more than at home. It was quite a different life than the one we are living now. The slower pace doesnt seem very slow but standing back and really looking, shows that now we have the time to take care of each other. Even if we dont know each other, we take care. We are also ever so grateful for this Florida weather. No place, no community, no person, can ever be perfect. There is always a wart to be found just down the street or on your left foot. So much easier to be happy with warmer temperatures (unless you are a snowboarder) and warm hearted people. We have also found the Ocala young people to be almost always, courteous and quick to smile. What a pleasure those smiles are. Must be the weather.

It was just a month ago that the task force on dog tethering made its recommendation to the County Commission: prohibit unsupervised tethering. The move came after weeks of meetings and several weeks of discussion by the public at Commission meetings that resulted in the appointment of the panel. But on Tuesday, the tethering issue apparently died a quick death in just 60 seconds. Commissioner David Moore, speaking under Commission Comments, raised the issue that was not on the agenda, and made a motion that the recommendations of the task force be adopted in a revision of the animal control ordinance. Chairman Carl Zalak waited a moment, but no one spoke. The motion dies for lack of a second, Zalak said, and the meeting moved ahead. There had been one person, Patricia Reed, signed up to speak about the issue, but Zalak announced at the beginning of the public portion of the meeting that she was not available. Arguments against tethering at the time of discussions said that dogs can become overly aggressive, and that in some cases there was cruelty involved. Those who were against the ban had argued that the county already has animal cruelty laws that could be enforce, and some indicated that government was overstepping its bounds by telling people what they could do with their animals in their own yard, as long as it wasnt harmful to the dogs. In other business, Zalak expressed concerns over a recent union agreement with the sheriff that calls for raises for deputies. The financial agreement was done without consulting commissioners, Zalak said, and will have an effect as the countyprepares next years budget.

ONLY 1 LEFT! Turn clocks ahead Sunday BY JIM CLARK Editor The silence was deafening. It was just a month ago that the task force on dog tethering made its recommendation to the County Commission: prohibit unsupervised tethering. The move came after weeks of meetings and several weeks of discussion by the public at Commission meetings that resulted in the appointment of the panel. But on Tuesday, the tethering issue apparently died a quick death in just 60 seconds. Commissioner David Moore, speaking under Commission Comments, raised the issue that was not on the agenda, and made a motion that the recommendations of the task force be adopted in a revision of the animal control ordinance. Chairman Carl Zalak waited a moment, but no one spoke. The motion dies for lack of a second, Zalak said, and the meeting moved ahead. There had been one person, Patricia Reed, signed up to speak about the issue, but Zalak announced at the beginning of the public portion of the meeting that she was not available. Arguments against tethering at the time of discussions said that dogs can become overly aggressive, and that in some cases there was cruelty involved. Those who were against the ban had argued that the county already has animal cruelty laws that could be enforce, and some indicated that government was overstepping its bounds by telling people what they could do with their animals in their own yard, as long as it wasnt harmful to the dogs. In other business, Zalak expressed concerns over a recent union agreement with the sheriff that calls for raises for deputies. The financial agreement was done without consulting commissioners, Zalak said, and will have an effect as the countyprepares next years budget.

Pancake loversDoctor, my husband thinks Im mad because I like pancakes. Thats nonsense. I like pancakes, too. Really? You must come visit and see my collection. PANCAKESCONTINUED FROM PAGE 24 and playing guitar. Such a joyful sound. Chatting over the fence with people walking or bicycling past and sometimes never knowing their names but always knowing their smiles or waves. Our home before was always filled with love and surrounded by wonderful neighbors, but we all worked and were raising families and were on the road more than at home. It was quite a different life than the one we are living now. The slower pace doesnt seem very slow but standing back and really looking, shows that now we have the time to take care of each other. Even if we dont know each other, we take care. We are also ever so grateful for this Florida weather. No place, no community, no person, can ever be perfect. There is always a wart to be found just down the street or on your left foot. So much easier to be happy with warmer temperatures (unless you are a snowboarder) and warm hearted people. We have also found the Ocala young people to be almost always, courteous and quick to smile. What a pleasure those smiles are. Must be the weather.

Invitations also have been extended to the local Republican Party and to the League of Women Voters. The Tampa Bay Times, in an editorial March 2, noted that Gov Scott has pursued a purge of voter rolls that threatened to disenfranchise minority voters; the county elections supervisors revolted. He signed into law restrictions on early voting; the public outcry forced changes. Thus we must exercise eternal vigilance in order to ensure that all eligible voters are able to exercise their right to vote. No matter how well our citizens are served in Marion County problems do occur here and elsewhere. The Friday Forum is open to all who wish to join in civil community dialogue.

come to the clubhouse at noon for a delicious meal and some fun conversation. Just be sure to also bring a dish to share and a place setting. I find it is such fun to make enough food to share and maybe show off a favorite dish or two. Even if it is purchased at the grocery store. Every dish is appreciated and enjoyed and so is the company of our friends and neighbors. Thermo-Cool Seminar On March 19 at 11 a.m., there will be a great opportunity for folks to learn how to maintain their A/C system and keep it in great condition for the summer months coming fast. We can do so much ourselves to keep our system in tip top condition. This seminar is well worth the time to prevent the high cost of replacing our systems sooner than necessary. Sashay into the clubhouse and sign up with Geri as she needs a head count. There will also be food involved from Thermo-Cool. How cool is that?Sock HopSaturday, March 22, 7 to 10 p.m., come dance at the clubhouse just for the fun of it. The dance is free to our Cherrywood residents and their guests. No cost to attend, no 50/50 raffle. Bring your drinks, snacks and list of your favorite music to sing along or dance to for our delightful DJ Rich Becotte. Another terrific opportunity to show your new neighbor or guest, what a really great place Cherrywood is, to live.TriviaWednesday, March 19, 7 p.m., you cant imagine the fun until you try it. Easy Peasy to play. How often do we say to another, what is the name of that movie star I liked so much? Hours later you might get the answer. Well, with Trivia you have team partners who can guess the multiple choice answers right along with you. Somebody is bound to get it right. This month the questions will be presented by our real writer, John Everlove. The subjects are, St. Patricks Day, general knowledge, geography, entertainment and sports. Amazing how each subject can produce a laugh and a smile and even a correct answer. Where else can you have so much fun for only $1? Our Trivia players have donated more than $400 to the Wounded Warrior Project in 2013. For 2014, we are supporting Patriot Dogs Charity. Such worthy causes benefit from such a good time. Climb out of your recliner or lawn chair and come join us in our Cherrywood activities. There truly is something for everyone.Yard salesOur Cherrywood Yard Sales this year will be on the first Saturdays in April and October. Our next one will be our spring yard sale on April 5 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dont forget and please do not put your items out the night before, as that can cause problems. Put them out first thing Saturday morning and we hope it will be a wonderful, sunny, productive day. Im sure we have all found that moment when the piece of furniture or knick knack we couldnt live without, has lost its luster and needs to be loved by someone else. Cherrywood ChirpOur Chirp magazine is placed in our buddy box on the 1st of every month. To all of our new neighbors, and some not so new, you will find all the information you need about the happenings in our wonderful community of Cherrywood. Activities, entertainment, thank you notes, letters from our military. Birthdays, anniversaries, travel opportunities. If you dont find a Chirp rolled up in your buddy box under your mailbox, please get one from Geri in the clubhouse office and tell her to notify the delivery person to leave one in your box. These little magazines are invaluable information to keep track of all the great happenings in our mini spot on the planet. We surely dont want to miss the opportunity to meet and get to know our neighbors. Thats why we live in a community instead of alone in the middle of 20 acres. Please check the last page in this months Chirp. There is a Disaster Preparedness Survey that is an important part of life in a community. Fill it out folks, it could save your life. All it takes is a really windy day and a tree on top of a house, to change your life forever.Clubhouse After attending a private party in our beautiful Cherrywood Clubhouse recently, I am wondering if most of our residents are aware that it is a great place to entertain and is available to us all for a refundable charge or no charge. What is required is to notify Geri for a reservation and to clean up all that is used, afterward. How nice is that? What a great way to hold a birthday party or anniversary with all your friends and not have to figure out how your own house will hold all the precious people you would like to invite. Just a NoteJust so you readers know, I havent been writing all of this by myself. John has done the writing for the Veterans Club activities and today for the Accordion Club. Geri gives me good outlines of items that need covered. This writing gig has been a team effort. Its been a while since I have really been obligated to do something. I find it pushes me a bit and I like it. I love the idea of periodically filling in for John to give him a break (we love you John) and this requires that I become more aware and active in my own neighborhood. Jim (my own dearly beloved) and I have always deeply appreciated what we have here in Cherrywood. Never before could we sit outside in a screened patio in March and hear neighbors singing Friday, March 7, 2014 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26 ~ Friday, March 7, 2014 www.smcitizen.com CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 25 PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD PAGE29 Saturday, March 15 Yard sale to benefit Ocala RelayA giant yard sale to support Relay for Life will take place on Saturday, March 15, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Cascades, 1515 E.

Friday, March 7, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, March 7, 2014 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen President Obama insists he does not regard the conflict in Ukraine as some Cold War chessboard in which we are in competition with Russia. Hed be more credible if he were not following his predecessors in acting as though the Cold War still exists. Although the Soviet empire, including its Warsaw Pact alliance, disbanded beginning in 1989, Republican and Democratic presidents have pursued aggressively anti-Russian policies up to the present. Most glaringly, NATO, the Western alliance created after World War II ostensibly to deter a Soviet invasion of Western Europe, did not also disband. On the contrary, at U.S. insistence and in violation of promises to Russias leaders, the alliance has grown and found new missions, such as intervening militarily against Russias ally Serbia and in Afghanistan and Libya. That would have been bad enough, but former members of the Soviet bloc, as well as former Soviet republics, have been admitted to NATO: Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia. Besides that, U.S. officials have talked up two other former Soviet republics, Georgia and surprise! Ukraine, as potential members of the alliance. Moreover, the U.S. government had a hand in the Georgian and Ukrainian color revolutions, which brought pro-U.S. politicians to power, at least for a time. The Obama administration is still at it today. The hostile push of NATO up to the doorstep of Russia (along with other threatening measures) has not gone unnoticed in Moscow. One can imagine the howls wed hear from American politicians, not least of all the ever-belligerent Sen. John McCain, if Russia were doing something similar in the vicinity of the United States. The sorry fact is that Americas rulers did much more than spike the football when the Soviet Union peacefully disintegrated. In every conceivable way, they exploited the occasion to assure that the United States would maintain its status as sole superpower and global hegemon. They humiliated Russias leadership, apparently not caring that it would never passively accept the insult. Its about time American politicians saw how their foreign policies look to those on the receiving end. Whats happening in Ukraine is sad. The country is divided between those who want closer ties to Western Europe and those who want closer ties to Russia. Since becoming independent of Russia, Ukraine has suffered corruption and worse offenses at the hands of legal plunderers. Now demonstrations in the streets even mob rule featuring neo-Nazis have resulted in turmoil and death, and the Russia-leaning president, Viktor Yanukovich, has fled the capital, while the parliament has named an interim replacement. To make things worse, outsiders wont keep their hands off. One thing we can know for sure and one need not be an admirer of Russian president Vladimir Putin to see it is that the United States should steer clear of Ukraine. It is none of the U.S. governments business whether that country is economically closer to Russia or the European Union (EU). The Obama administration should not only forswear direct and covert intervention, it should also shut up. American presidents must learn to mind their own business, even where Russia is concerned. T wo weeks ago we talked about Richie Incognito of the Miami Dolphins and his apparent hazing of a rookie teammate, hazing that had racial overtones. There has been much debate over the past few months about those activities, but last week it was discovered that Incognito was being treated for mental issues at an undisclosed facility. If only it were that easy to get bullies out of the way. The Dolphins issue raised the bar in discussions of bullying as people everywhere discussed what could be done about it. In my experience, not much at least in the past. I still suffer bad memories from the days when I was a victim at Don Bosco High School in Ramsey, New Jersey. When I was a freshman, I was bullied unmercifully, mainly on the school bus, and I wasnt alone. All the freshmen on the bus were subject to physical intimidation, being ordered to dogpile on the floor of the bus, and all the while the bus driver, who wanted to be one of the boys, was the perfect imitation of the not-yet-popular Sgt. Schultz of Hogans Heroes: I see nothing. It all happened on the way home. In the morning it was important that when we got to school we would look clean and neat. It was a Catholic boys school, and we had to wear shirts and ties every day. The ties usually came off immediately after the bus pulled out of the parking lot. I started at this particular school because it was just about three miles from home. But shortly after freshman year started, my parents moved us from Ramsey to Tenafly, and I suddenly had to take the bus. I still remember the name of the most prominent instigator of the bullying. Im not sure what I would do if I met him today, more than 50 years later, but I dont think it would be a reunion between long-lost friends. It got so bad that one day in the spring I walked out of school at lunch time, and walked and hitchhiked home. It was near the end of the school year, so my parents, who saw for the first time how upset I was, complained to the school. The next morning one of the two priests who ran the place with iron fists was on the bus, and this only added to the determination of the upperclassmen to pick on the freshmen when they had the chance. We hear a lot how bullying victims should tell someone, but I can tell you first-hand that isnt always a solution. Finally the school year ended, and mercifully I didnt have to take the bus the final day. I wanted to transfer to Bergen Catholic my sophomore year, but lacked one class, general science, that BC had for freshmen and Don Bosco didnt. So I went to the public school summer school, Tenafly High, and took science, and my mom also signed me up for another class typing. This turned out to be a decision that had a lifelong effect on me. I was already registered at Tenafly High, and already had a schedule, when Bergen Catholic called and they had a vacancy, since I now qualified. I wasnt sure at that point that I wanted to go there, but, in another good decision, my folks insisted on the Catholic school. It galls me every time I read about the football prowess of my first high school, how they play everywhere, how they often meet Bergen Catholic in state finals. I still, deep down, resent their ignoring of the bullies, and hope they lose every time BCHS plays them. I also wonder how the bus rides are nowadays for the freshmen. I hope its not a situation where they are picked on as much as we were. Maybe our suffering helped clean things up but somehow I have my doubts.

This coming weekend, move your clocks ahead one hour. Daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, which immediately becomes 3 a.m. If you forget to set your clocks ahead, you will probably be late for church Sunday morning. Its amazing how sometimes the human mind controls the body. Its only a one-hour time difference, yet for some reason it takes many people a week or more to adjust to the change. The one good thing that comes out of it is that, several years ago, someone had the good idea to link changing batteries in your smoke detectors to the time change. By making sure the batteries are fresh and operable, you could be saving lives, including your own. Daylight saving (not savings) time means that it will be dark later in the morning, a fact that puts some students in harms way as they wait for their buses in the dark. So if you have to drive early in the morning, make sure you watch out for youngsters heading for school. Of course it also means that there will be an extra hour of daylight in the evening, which means that bedtime for little ones will have to be adjusted, or else parents will face strong objections from youngsters whose bodies wont be ready to go to sleep. There wont even be an adjustment period for students. Spring break in Marion County doesnt start until Friday, March 21. Somehow, we wish that the powers-that-be would just say no more, and keep the time the same all year. Then we would face far fewer adjustments to our lives. But until that happens, take advantage of the sayings that urge you to change your batteries in your smoke detectors (and others, such as carbon monoxide, if you have them). Being careful may mean that youre around to change your clocks back next fall. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

The first is a two thirds vote in both houses of Congress and the second is a request, to Congress, by two thirds, or 34 of our state legislatures. All proposed amendments from a Convention must then be approved by three fourth, or 38 of the state legislatures. Levin lists 10 amendments that he believes will return our federal government to the founders principles and to our control. His amendments would include term limits for members of Congress and the Supreme Court, limits on federal spending and taxes, limits on the federal bureaucracy and protection of free enterprise, voting and private property. Our current members of Congress will never voluntarily vote for a Constitutional Convention that would endanger their opportunities for a long lucrative career in Washington. Their loyalty is to their party and their campaign contributors, not to us. Their main concern is which of the two parties we select with our votes. What we see as the choice between two evils, the winning majority will see as an endorsement to direct our government to further increase their partys reach and power. A division of power between the two parties gives us our current gridlock government. Obtaining a convention request from 34 state legislatures would take a dedicated effort by a large number of motivated people in each of our 50 states. But the Tea Party may be the group that can get some changes started.

Someday, if were lucky, people will stop thinking of trade as a matter of state policy. Why must Ukraine meaning its politicians sign an agreement with either the EU or Russia? Why cant individual Ukrainians and private Ukrainian companies trade freely with whomever they want? (This question also applies to America and every other country.) There are many sources of political tension in the world, but historically a principal one has been the idea that governments must set the terms of trade with people in other nations. Bad idea. Free trade should mean individual freedom. In the meantime, the Obama administration should steer clear of Ukraine. Despite what Americans have believed for over 200 years, the United States was not placed on this earth to right the world. Intervention is more likely to make things worse than better.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). RICHMAN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 they have several members of Congress who have endorsed their concerns on federal spending. All members of the House and 33 members of the Senate will be on all ballots in November. Legislators in 46 states will be on their local ballots. If every candidate for every state or federal legislative seat was required to discuss their position on a Constitutional Convention, then the idea of a convention will be implanted. Maybe even the media will take notice. The media recently announced, with joy, that the Tea Party was dead. Hopefully, grass root efforts by independent voters will never die. We dont have a Tea Party chapter here in Ocala. Is there anyone interested in creating one? Bill Farthing, Ocala Crows not birds of prey I recently read an article which stated, Crows are a bird of prey. The American Crow, Corvus imparatus, is not a predator, but a scavenger. They will eat small rodents, frogs, LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 bugs and eggs, but birds of prey never. One must be able to identify a bird of prey. Theyre often called raptors, and in our back yard trees, we have a pair of great horned owls, Bubo virginianus, birds of prey/raptors, and the largest of all owls. A bird of prey has a hooked beak for tearing, such as the owls, and eagles. One of the most aggressive predators, is a breed of sea gull, of which few are aware or have seen. Its a South Polar Scua, Catharacta maccormicki. They can migrate as far North as the Georgia Coast, where I saw a pair along with a Marine Biologist, with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, on St. Simons Island. Its a large gray and black gull with a hooked beak, and I can tell you when a pair is in the area, you will see no birds of any species, as far as the eye can see. As I said, birds of prey have a hooked beak for tearing its prey, and a crow doesnt. Now, crows are really a nuisance but they wont scare smaller birds away. We have a bird feeder, suet, and bird bath in our back yard, and at any time well have 5-10 birds of all species on the feeder, and at the same time we may also have as many as 4-6 crows in the area. Woodpeckers and Blue Jays will scare the smaller birds away much quicker. Weve had two hatchlings of black capped chickadees, and two hatchlings of cardinals in our birdhouses in the last two years, and the young did survive quite well, and were not bothered by other birds, including crows. Weve had as many a 27 species of birds in our back yard. Again, I dislike crows as much as any other nuisance bird, such as starlings and blue jays, but I guess we must live with them, after all it is nature. But, when one discusses anything they should know of what they speak. Wikipedia doesnt always have all the answers, and if you rely on it solely for information, youre in trouble. Being a wildlife artist/sculptor, primarily of waterfowl, with my work all over the world, there are many more species of birds which I find as annoying, and leave quite a mess, such as cattle egrets, and geese. Bill Ford Oak Run Please use our e-mail: editor@smcitizen.com I n most English speaking countries this last Tuesday was Shrove Tuesday, also commonly known as Pancake Day or Pancake Tuesday due to the tradition of eating pancakes on the day preceding Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. In the U.S., IHOP celebrates National Pancake Day by giving everyone a free short stack of pancakes. In return for the free pancakes, customers are asked to consider leaving a donation for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals or other designated local charities. While enjoying my pancakes on Tuesday, I heard a few stories for you. LoverA young man was in love with two women and could not decide which of them to marry. Finally he went to a marriage counselor. When asked to describe his two loves, he noted that one was a great poet and the other made delicious pancakes. Oh said the counselor, I see what the problem is. You cant decide whether to marry for batter or verse. Illegal juice Then there was the time my brother and I went to a local pancake house. This place served real Vermont maple syrup but charged extra for it. We took a trip to the supermarket and bought our own bottle. Not wanting to get caught, we were forced to pass it between us syrupticiously.Short stacksThe commercialization of Pancake Day is unbelievable. Theres been milk, eggs and flour in the supermarket shelves for months now. A lot of pancake-making puns are really pour. Whether its a pancake or a baseball team, the secret is to start with a good batter. On April Fools Day, a girl put a firecracker under the pancakes. She blew her stack. Haunted French pancakes give me the crapes. Pancake Day is only day of the year where hitting the ceiling is just considered a bad toss. My friend has claimed shes made a Picasso inspired cubist pancake, but I think shes just waffling. In honor of Pancake Day, we were listening to musicians who played flat. One pancake said to the other pancake, See you on the flip side. Two eggs, a sausage, and a pancake walked into a bar. The bartender said, Sorry, we dont serve breakfast. The dogs nose is flatter than a pancake. He got it from chasing parked cars. The politicians were really at it this last week, so its also National Waffle Week. Waffle iron? Why on earth would you want to iron a waffle? No matter how bad the appetizer is in a German restaurant, the wurst is yet to come. TypicalMary offered to care for the eightyear-old daughter of neighbors who were going away for the weekend. On Saturday morning, she made breakfast, laying a generous portion of bacon and eggs in front of the child. Mummy always serves hot pancakes for breakfast, said the child. So Mary, very eager to oblige, hurried into the kitchen and quickly prepared some pancakes, which she laid in front of the girl. No, thank you, she said. But I thought you said your mother always has hot pancakes for breakfast! said Mary in surprise. She does, said the child. But I dont eat them!

What does he think this place is, an auto parts store? No, the cook said.

I have been going to church for more years than I care to remember. If I tried to remember how many years it is, I might then remember how old I am. Knowing how old I am does not have any appeal to me. I rather like going to church. I do not go to church because I have to. I go to church because it is a wonderful place and it is filled with wonderful people. Are there hypocrites in the church? Yes, a whole lot more. You would be surprised at the people that go to church. No matter how crazy you might be, I am sure there will be somebody to relate to in any church you go to. Church is not for the perfect, just for those who love the Lord. I think I could make myself comfortable in any Christian church. I do not always have to amend my thinking. Lately I had to amend this thinking that I could make myself comfortable in any Christian church. In the news recently was the snake handling church in Kentucky. These people believe that you can pick up a poisonous snake and if it bites you, it will not kill you. I know the Scripture they use for that, but I am not sure they understand what that Scripture really means. Someone said to a friend of mine, You mean that if God told you to pick up a snake you wouldnt do it? Without any hesitation, my friend said, He hasnt and I aint. The fact that the minister of that church died from a snakebite might bring into question the validity of what they believe. Go ahead; play with a poisonous snake in church if you want to. Me, I let those things alone and I pray they let me alone. I would not feel comfortable in that church I am sure. Then I learned of some other church. I guess in America, there are all kinds of churches for all kinds of people. And in America sanity is not a prerequisite of anything, just look at our politicians. I guess the only thing more insane today than politicians are some preachers, and I happen to be a preacher, hopefully not of the insanity kind. One of my goals is to keep my insanity at a low level every day that I live so nobody really sees it. Then I learned of a church in Virginia. I have often had a lot of respect for Virginia and visited quite a few times. Some great men and even presidents have come from the state of Virginia. You can imagine how alarmed I was to hear about this new church. When somebody told me about it, I thought they were saying it was a Knewest church. I never heard of such a thing. My question quite naturally was, what is it that these people knew. I am constantly open for any new information so my curiosity went up. Then my friend pulled out his smart phone and showed me a videotape that was on the news about this church. It was not a Knewest church but rather a nudist church. When I watched it, I laughed because I believed my friend was playing a prank on me. There are stupid people in the world, I admit, but I think even stupidity has a limit. He finally convinced me that this was a real news story of a real nudist church in Virginia. Fortunately, the people who produced this video for the news strategically blurred out certain parts of the video of which I am everlastingly thankful. It is a legitimate church and the motto, according to the pastor, is that they do not want to judge people by the clothing they are wearing. Really! How about judging people by the clothing they are not wearing? I have a hard time seeing through that kind of theology. I like to get down to the bare facts, but this is absolutely incredulous. Of course, it does save a lot of time in the morning trying to figure out what you are going to wear to church. You do not have to look at several neckties to see which one fits with this suit. Apart from the sheer ridiculousness Church just aint what it used to be Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder of this sort of matter, one matter truly annoys me. Where do they keep their offering? On second thought, I do not want to know. Then a brilliant idea sloshed its way through the corridors of my mind. What if these two congregations had a convention together? The snake handlers and the nudist churches get together for an annual convention. Can you imagine the craziness of such a thing as that? Then I got to thinking about it again. That would be grossly unfair to the snakes. Who in the world would they bite first? On the other hand, would they grow legs and run for the nearest door? I remembered what Jesus said to Peter referring to the church. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it (Matthew 16:18). The church does not belong to men or any one man. It belongs exclusively to God. The more churches look like the world around it the less pleasing it is to Jesus, the head of the church. resident or a guest of a resident, you are invited to come to Palm Grove to participate in an afternoon of watching the Run for the Roses (Kentucky Derby).

Friday, March 7, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, March 7, 2014 www.smcitizen.com I ts the same old question akin to the proverbial: What came first, the chicken or the egg? When one of my readers in Citrus County posed it to me, I thought it would make for a provocative column. So here it is, the question everybody loves to ask: Are Jews a people or a religion? The answer, my dear Watson, is not so elementary. There are many factors at play here and of course with two Jews you get three opinions but from my humble point of view of a liberal Jewish woman living in the State of Florida, I wish to offer the following. If you were to examine the liturgy, you would find references to the Jewish people all over the siddur (prayer book). Each branch of Judaism publishes its own version with their specialized translations of the original Hebrew according to the dictates of their movement. While the liberal branches will be gender neutral in terms of pronouns for God, the more traditional texts will still use the masculine. Despite these and other subtle differences, Jews are still referred to as the Jewish people or the people of Israel or Gods people or Your people (referring to God). There is definitely a relationship here between a specific group of people (nation) and the rest of the peoples of the world. That relationship that Jews have with God is in the form of a covenant or agreement, God will be Israels God and Israel will do Gods bidding. The ancient Israelites who morphed into todays Jews, were given a set of laws, the Ten Commandments and the Torah (Five Books of Moses) with all its laws and precepts in order to live a moral and just life. Jews are the vehicle for these laws, a nation to show others how to live in peace and harmony. When you are considered a nation, then you have a country, customs and folkways to call your own. Jews have all of these things. The State of Israel is the Jewish homeland and the customs and laws of Judaism are the law of the land. Here is where things get interesting. Judaism is a religion. Religion by definition is a set of spiritual beliefs complete with rituals, taboos and liturgy. Judaism is so a part of the Jewish psyche that you cannot separate the two. Even secular Jews will observe Shabbat in their own way; it is part of the customs of belonging to the Jewish people. Can you be a member of the Jewish people and be a non-practicing Jew? The answer is yes, you would be considered a secular Jew because if your mother (some branches say father) was Jewish so are you a member of the Jewish people. Here peoplehood seems to trump religion. You are a member of the Jewish people even if all you do for Purim is eat Hamantashen or just attend a seder on Passover. You are also considered Jewish if you faithfully observe the commandments (mitzvot) and lead religious services. You also bond with the Jewish people by supporting Zionist causes and attending Jewish functions such as concerts or book reviews on Jewish topics. Jews are a close knit group of people, a community where even on the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, prayers for forgiveness are recited in the plural. Mordecai Kaplan, the founder of the liberal Jewish movement, Reconstructionism, called Judaism a living religious civilization. He saw Judaism as not just a religion but more of a civilization, that is a group of people living together sharing similar values, music, art, food and religion. All of this describes the Jewish people. Where would we be without our distinctive food based on our specialized dietary laws, our music, art and even our way of dress? All these things characterize us as a nation and make us distinctive from others around us. Even our concept of holiness revolves around the idea of separateness, for example, taking an object, such as wine, and consecrating it to a higher purpose as Jews do on the Sabbath. So how can you be part of the Jewish people when you are Asian, African, Native American or other nationality or race? Here religion trumps nationality and so we have Jewish Africans such as the ones from Ethiopia, Chinese Jews and Native Americans who are members of both tribes! It is entirely up to you if you are an American Jew or a Jewish American because Judaism is a religion and being a Jew does not make you part of a race since Jews can be of any race or color. Despite Hitlers attempts to prove otherwise with his racial purity of the Aryan race and ridiculous caricatures of Jewish noses as a Jewish racial trait, Jews are descendants from Semite tribes (hence our term anti-Semite for being against Jews) and since they were exiled by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.E., they have been scattered The Jewish people Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI PAGE12 T his is my first column and I would like to say thank you for all the support I have received.

Laura Veterans AssociationOn Wednesday, March 19 at 7 p.m. at the Orchid Club, the Oak Run Veterans Association, will have as it guest speaker Jay Carmichael, a survivor of the Battle of the Bulge, who will speak how his faith got him through his being captured by the Germans. This is a rare opportunity to hear his story in person. All residents are invited to attend this meeting. The Veterans Association motto is To keep the memories alive and foster patriotism. Performing Arts at Oak RunThe performing arts club of Oak Run is experiencing advance ticket sales for its spring production of Rexs Exes that outpace previous years sales. Howard Spies, publicist for the group, says, Our clubs productions are the perfect way to get out and say hello to neighbors in a very easy social setting. Many use the play productions to introduce visiting friends, family, and friends from Ocala-proper, to our beautiful neighborhood. The weather leading up to the play has not, other than relatively, been so great; so, I think theres a lot of pent up demand to get out of the house and enjoy an event or two. Our early April show dates will, no doubt, be amidst the spring-clad Palm Grove. Accommodations are made for all, and theres a nice long break in the short production. If special seating arrangements are needed, you may arrive early and have the help of one or more of our fleet of ushers. Behind the scenes, the clubs handymen are preparing to amaze with a set that functions and provides a view into the everyday of life of the cousins. Included are a swinging door that stands up to some rough action and for much of the play: a living room suited to the Battle of the Bulge survivor to speak to Oak Run group Oak Run Laura Smith much-maligned, yet prominent, Verdeen family of Sweetgum, Texas. Bob Kreider, Art Schmidt, Hal Weber, Bruce McDuffee, Dick Caza and Franco Piscitelli bring a full complement of construction and handyman skills to this and other performances. We could not do what we do without these guys tremendous skill and patience. Youre taking someone very technically adept as well as creative to put our sets together, said Garth Markum, Director. Weve just been in receipt of one, rather puzzling, dispatch from Sweetgum, Texas this week: Verla Kay Askew submits: DONT count on any vacancies soon in the Daughters of the Nation of Texas roster. Rumors of my demise have been greatly overstated; besides, there will never be room for an ex-convict in hallowed legacy of our society.

And so our answer to our question is that being a Jew makes you part of a people as well as a member of a specific religion. In truth, the way Jews think, act and pray and face life are so a part of us as a people. We have our own languages, Ladino and Yiddish and our holy tongue of Hebrew. And while we share many of our values with other groups, I still believe that nobody can play a violin like a Jew and if you want to win a case, get a Jewish lawyer from New York. Kidding aside, our tradition teaches us that God and the Jewish people are one. That means that Jewish peoplehood and religion are one. Next question, please. JUDI CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 BY JEAN DIPIERO Special to the Citizen Indigo East held a Taste of Tuscany dinner on Sunday, March 2.

Taste of Tuscany at Indigo East Some of those attending the Taste of Tuscany dinner at Indigo East. Marla and Joe Ziino of Indigo East. RUNNER By Patrick LeeI n Runner Patrick Lee serves up something different for jaded readers out there. A retired Black Ops, Houdini-like escape artist named Sam Dryden meets up with a terrified 11-year-old mind-reading girl being chased by government agents intent on killing her. What began as a peaceful 3 a.m. stroll on the beach for Sam turns into the fight of his life as he tries to protect the child. This is a high-tech thriller with a sci-fi edge and paranormal overtones. Its packed with fast-moving scenes at breakneck speed, a frightening scenario that Lee manages to make plausible. Once the two have evaded her pursuers, Rachel recounts how shes been held in prison at Fort Dietrich because she possesses a skill that makes her dangerous. Theres little time to hear more as government forces hurl every tracking means against the pair, including satellites and Black Hawk helicopters. Finally, they think themselves safe in a remote cabin in Sequoia National Park, a place known only to Sam or so he thought when an armed man shows up at the cabin door. In a fraction of a second it took Dryden to understand, everything changed. From a sitting position beside Rachel, Dryden threw his body at the shelf next to the door and had the SIG SAUER in his hand an instant later. He braced a palm on the door frame and shoved himself backward, dropping to a shooters stance in the middle of the floor. Shots rang out. The dead man was a uniformed cop. The idea that the government could use people as weapons and then dispose of them without a thought is a chilling one that Lee develops convincingly. Runner has complex but strong believable characters and interesting shifts in points of view. Although Sam Dryden is propelled out of his comfortable retirement, his was a life only half lived since the deaths of his wife and daughter. A page-turning, adrenaline rush from a new writer.

Friday, March 7, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, March 7, 2014 www.smcitizen.com S taying active as we age is very important. It makes us feel better, have more energy, and likely stay more healthy. This helps us be able to do what we want when we want. We all want to live as full a life as possible. How well we age has a lot to do with how we function physically. We do better when we take a walk, use the exercise equipment in the gym, and/or join an exercise class in doors or in the pool. Active aging also includes functioning as well as possible mentally. Going to Master the Possibilities classes is a great way to learn new subjects or brush up on partly forgotten ones.

The OTOW bus was filled quickly with one seat reserved for the tour guide Karen Grimes from Farm Tours of Ocala (http://www.farmtoursofocala.com/). The residents first stop was at the Florida Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association horse museum on SW 60th Avenue next to OBS.

Trophies from different races were on display also. Another stop was at Hennesy Arabian Farm to see several horses. Journeyman Stud on Northwest 100th Street in Ocala was the next stop but several horse farms were seen as we went down the road. Several stallions were seen but no live breeding was done. The Jockey club requires that their horses have to do live breeding, nothing artificial is allowed. Brent Ferung gave an interesting tour.

Friday, March 7, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, March 7, 2014 www.smcitizen.com S taying active as we age is very important. It makes us feel better, have more energy, and likely stay more healthy. This helps us be able to do what we want when we want. We all want to live as full a life as possible. How well we age has a lot to do with how we function physically. We do better when we take a walk, use the exercise equipment in the gym, and/or join an exercise class in doors or in the pool. Active aging also includes functioning as well as possible mentally. Going to Master the Possibilities classes is a great way to learn new subjects or brush up on partly forgotten ones.

And so our answer to our question is that being a Jew makes you part of a people as well as a member of a specific religion. In truth, the way Jews think, act and pray and face life are so a part of us as a people. We have our own languages, Ladino and Yiddish and our holy tongue of Hebrew. And while we share many of our values with other groups, I still believe that nobody can play a violin like a Jew and if you want to win a case, get a Jewish lawyer from New York. Kidding aside, our tradition teaches us that God and the Jewish people are one. That means that Jewish peoplehood and religion are one. Next question, please. JUDI CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 BY JEAN DIPIERO Special to the Citizen Indigo East held a Taste of Tuscany dinner on Sunday, March 2.

RUNNER By Patrick LeeI n Runner Patrick Lee serves up something different for jaded readers out there. A retired Black Ops, Houdini-like escape artist named Sam Dryden meets up with a terrified 11-year-old mind-reading girl being chased by government agents intent on killing her. What began as a peaceful 3 a.m. stroll on the beach for Sam turns into the fight of his life as he tries to protect the child. This is a high-tech thriller with a sci-fi edge and paranormal overtones. Its packed with fast-moving scenes at breakneck speed, a frightening scenario that Lee manages to make plausible. Once the two have evaded her pursuers, Rachel recounts how shes been held in prison at Fort Dietrich because she possesses a skill that makes her dangerous. Theres little time to hear more as government forces hurl every tracking means against the pair, including satellites and Black Hawk helicopters. Finally, they think themselves safe in a remote cabin in Sequoia National Park, a place known only to Sam or so he thought when an armed man shows up at the cabin door. In a fraction of a second it took Dryden to understand, everything changed. From a sitting position beside Rachel, Dryden threw his body at the shelf next to the door and had the SIG SAUER in his hand an instant later. He braced a palm on the door frame and shoved himself backward, dropping to a shooters stance in the middle of the floor. Shots rang out. The dead man was a uniformed cop. The idea that the government could use people as weapons and then dispose of them without a thought is a chilling one that Lee develops convincingly. Runner has complex but strong believable characters and interesting shifts in points of view. Although Sam Dryden is propelled out of his comfortable retirement, his was a life only half lived since the deaths of his wife and daughter. A page-turning, adrenaline rush from a new writer.

Friday, March 7, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, March 7, 2014 www.smcitizen.com I ts the same old question akin to the proverbial: What came first, the chicken or the egg? When one of my readers in Citrus County posed it to me, I thought it would make for a provocative column. So here it is, the question everybody loves to ask: Are Jews a people or a religion? The answer, my dear Watson, is not so elementary. There are many factors at play here and of course with two Jews you get three opinions but from my humble point of view of a liberal Jewish woman living in the State of Florida, I wish to offer the following. If you were to examine the liturgy, you would find references to the Jewish people all over the siddur (prayer book). Each branch of Judaism publishes its own version with their specialized translations of the original Hebrew according to the dictates of their movement. While the liberal branches will be gender neutral in terms of pronouns for God, the more traditional texts will still use the masculine. Despite these and other subtle differences, Jews are still referred to as the Jewish people or the people of Israel or Gods people or Your people (referring to God). There is definitely a relationship here between a specific group of people (nation) and the rest of the peoples of the world. That relationship that Jews have with God is in the form of a covenant or agreement, God will be Israels God and Israel will do Gods bidding. The ancient Israelites who morphed into todays Jews, were given a set of laws, the Ten Commandments and the Torah (Five Books of Moses) with all its laws and precepts in order to live a moral and just life. Jews are the vehicle for these laws, a nation to show others how to live in peace and harmony. When you are considered a nation, then you have a country, customs and folkways to call your own. Jews have all of these things. The State of Israel is the Jewish homeland and the customs and laws of Judaism are the law of the land. Here is where things get interesting. Judaism is a religion. Religion by definition is a set of spiritual beliefs complete with rituals, taboos and liturgy. Judaism is so a part of the Jewish psyche that you cannot separate the two. Even secular Jews will observe Shabbat in their own way; it is part of the customs of belonging to the Jewish people. Can you be a member of the Jewish people and be a non-practicing Jew? The answer is yes, you would be considered a secular Jew because if your mother (some branches say father) was Jewish so are you a member of the Jewish people. Here peoplehood seems to trump religion. You are a member of the Jewish people even if all you do for Purim is eat Hamantashen or just attend a seder on Passover. You are also considered Jewish if you faithfully observe the commandments (mitzvot) and lead religious services. You also bond with the Jewish people by supporting Zionist causes and attending Jewish functions such as concerts or book reviews on Jewish topics. Jews are a close knit group of people, a community where even on the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, prayers for forgiveness are recited in the plural. Mordecai Kaplan, the founder of the liberal Jewish movement, Reconstructionism, called Judaism a living religious civilization. He saw Judaism as not just a religion but more of a civilization, that is a group of people living together sharing similar values, music, art, food and religion. All of this describes the Jewish people. Where would we be without our distinctive food based on our specialized dietary laws, our music, art and even our way of dress? All these things characterize us as a nation and make us distinctive from others around us. Even our concept of holiness revolves around the idea of separateness, for example, taking an object, such as wine, and consecrating it to a higher purpose as Jews do on the Sabbath. So how can you be part of the Jewish people when you are Asian, African, Native American or other nationality or race? Here religion trumps nationality and so we have Jewish Africans such as the ones from Ethiopia, Chinese Jews and Native Americans who are members of both tribes! It is entirely up to you if you are an American Jew or a Jewish American because Judaism is a religion and being a Jew does not make you part of a race since Jews can be of any race or color. Despite Hitlers attempts to prove otherwise with his racial purity of the Aryan race and ridiculous caricatures of Jewish noses as a Jewish racial trait, Jews are descendants from Semite tribes (hence our term anti-Semite for being against Jews) and since they were exiled by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.E., they have been scattered The Jewish people Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI PAGE12 T his is my first column and I would like to say thank you for all the support I have received. I did not realize how many residents would be happy to have a writer for the Oak Run news in the Citizen. I would like to thank Carol Wheeler for all the years she took care of writing the events for our community. Now for all the activities around a great community. Be sure and get involved. Laura Veterans AssociationOn Wednesday, March 19 at 7 p.m. at the Orchid Club, the Oak Run Veterans Association, will have as it guest speaker Jay Carmichael, a survivor of the Battle of the Bulge, who will speak how his faith got him through his being captured by the Germans. This is a rare opportunity to hear his story in person. All residents are invited to attend this meeting. The Veterans Association motto is To keep the memories alive and foster patriotism. Performing Arts at Oak RunThe performing arts club of Oak Run is experiencing advance ticket sales for its spring production of Rexs Exes that outpace previous years sales. Howard Spies, publicist for the group, says, Our clubs productions are the perfect way to get out and say hello to neighbors in a very easy social setting. Many use the play productions to introduce visiting friends, family, and friends from Ocala-proper, to our beautiful neighborhood. The weather leading up to the play has not, other than relatively, been so great; so, I think theres a lot of pent up demand to get out of the house and enjoy an event or two. Our early April show dates will, no doubt, be amidst the spring-clad Palm Grove. Accommodations are made for all, and theres a nice long break in the short production. If special seating arrangements are needed, you may arrive early and have the help of one or more of our fleet of ushers. Behind the scenes, the clubs handymen are preparing to amaze with a set that functions and provides a view into the everyday of life of the cousins. Included are a swinging door that stands up to some rough action and for much of the play: a living room suited to the Battle of the Bulge survivor to speak to Oak Run group Oak Run Laura Smith much-maligned, yet prominent, Verdeen family of Sweetgum, Texas. Bob Kreider, Art Schmidt, Hal Weber, Bruce McDuffee, Dick Caza and Franco Piscitelli bring a full complement of construction and handyman skills to this and other performances. We could not do what we do without these guys tremendous skill and patience. Youre taking someone very technically adept as well as creative to put our sets together, said Garth Markum, Director. Weve just been in receipt of one, rather puzzling, dispatch from Sweetgum, Texas this week: Verla Kay Askew submits: DONT count on any vacancies soon in the Daughters of the Nation of Texas roster. Rumors of my demise have been greatly overstated; besides, there will never be room for an ex-convict in hallowed legacy of our society.

I have been going to church for more years than I care to remember. If I tried to remember how many years it is, I might then remember how old I am. Knowing how old I am does not have any appeal to me. I rather like going to church. I do not go to church because I have to. I go to church because it is a wonderful place and it is filled with wonderful people. Are there hypocrites in the church? Yes, a whole lot more. You would be surprised at the people that go to church. No matter how crazy you might be, I am sure there will be somebody to relate to in any church you go to. Church is not for the perfect, just for those who love the Lord. I think I could make myself comfortable in any Christian church. I do not always have to amend my thinking. Lately I had to amend this thinking that I could make myself comfortable in any Christian church. In the news recently was the snake handling church in Kentucky. These people believe that you can pick up a poisonous snake and if it bites you, it will not kill you. I know the Scripture they use for that, but I am not sure they understand what that Scripture really means. Someone said to a friend of mine, You mean that if God told you to pick up a snake you wouldnt do it? Without any hesitation, my friend said, He hasnt and I aint. The fact that the minister of that church died from a snakebite might bring into question the validity of what they believe. Go ahead; play with a poisonous snake in church if you want to. Me, I let those things alone and I pray they let me alone. I would not feel comfortable in that church I am sure. Then I learned of some other church. I guess in America, there are all kinds of churches for all kinds of people. And in America sanity is not a prerequisite of anything, just look at our politicians. I guess the only thing more insane today than politicians are some preachers, and I happen to be a preacher, hopefully not of the insanity kind. One of my goals is to keep my insanity at a low level every day that I live so nobody really sees it. Then I learned of a church in Virginia. I have often had a lot of respect for Virginia and visited quite a few times. Some great men and even presidents have come from the state of Virginia. You can imagine how alarmed I was to hear about this new church. When somebody told me about it, I thought they were saying it was a Knewest church. I never heard of such a thing. My question quite naturally was, what is it that these people knew. I am constantly open for any new information so my curiosity went up. Then my friend pulled out his smart phone and showed me a videotape that was on the news about this church. It was not a Knewest church but rather a nudist church. When I watched it, I laughed because I believed my friend was playing a prank on me. There are stupid people in the world, I admit, but I think even stupidity has a limit. He finally convinced me that this was a real news story of a real nudist church in Virginia. Fortunately, the people who produced this video for the news strategically blurred out certain parts of the video of which I am everlastingly thankful. It is a legitimate church and the motto, according to the pastor, is that they do not want to judge people by the clothing they are wearing. Really! How about judging people by the clothing they are not wearing? I have a hard time seeing through that kind of theology. I like to get down to the bare facts, but this is absolutely incredulous. Of course, it does save a lot of time in the morning trying to figure out what you are going to wear to church. You do not have to look at several neckties to see which one fits with this suit. Apart from the sheer ridiculousness Church just aint what it used to be Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder of this sort of matter, one matter truly annoys me. Where do they keep their offering? On second thought, I do not want to know. Then a brilliant idea sloshed its way through the corridors of my mind. What if these two congregations had a convention together? The snake handlers and the nudist churches get together for an annual convention. Can you imagine the craziness of such a thing as that? Then I got to thinking about it again. That would be grossly unfair to the snakes. Who in the world would they bite first? On the other hand, would they grow legs and run for the nearest door? I remembered what Jesus said to Peter referring to the church. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it (Matthew 16:18). The church does not belong to men or any one man. It belongs exclusively to God. The more churches look like the world around it the less pleasing it is to Jesus, the head of the church. resident or a guest of a resident, you are invited to come to Palm Grove to participate in an afternoon of watching the Run for the Roses (Kentucky Derby).

Someday, if were lucky, people will stop thinking of trade as a matter of state policy. Why must Ukraine meaning its politicians sign an agreement with either the EU or Russia? Why cant individual Ukrainians and private Ukrainian companies trade freely with whomever they want? (This question also applies to America and every other country.) There are many sources of political tension in the world, but historically a principal one has been the idea that governments must set the terms of trade with people in other nations. Bad idea. Free trade should mean individual freedom. In the meantime, the Obama administration should steer clear of Ukraine. Despite what Americans have believed for over 200 years, the United States was not placed on this earth to right the world. Intervention is more likely to make things worse than better.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). RICHMAN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 they have several members of Congress who have endorsed their concerns on federal spending. All members of the House and 33 members of the Senate will be on all ballots in November. Legislators in 46 states will be on their local ballots. If every candidate for every state or federal legislative seat was required to discuss their position on a Constitutional Convention, then the idea of a convention will be implanted. Maybe even the media will take notice. The media recently announced, with joy, that the Tea Party was dead. Hopefully, grass root efforts by independent voters will never die. We dont have a Tea Party chapter here in Ocala. Is there anyone interested in creating one? Bill Farthing, Ocala Crows not birds of prey I recently read an article which stated, Crows are a bird of prey. The American Crow, Corvus imparatus, is not a predator, but a scavenger. They will eat small rodents, frogs, LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 bugs and eggs, but birds of prey never. One must be able to identify a bird of prey. Theyre often called raptors, and in our back yard trees, we have a pair of great horned owls, Bubo virginianus, birds of prey/raptors, and the largest of all owls. A bird of prey has a hooked beak for tearing, such as the owls, and eagles. One of the most aggressive predators, is a breed of sea gull, of which few are aware or have seen. Its a South Polar Scua, Catharacta maccormicki. They can migrate as far North as the Georgia Coast, where I saw a pair along with a Marine Biologist, with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, on St. Simons Island. Its a large gray and black gull with a hooked beak, and I can tell you when a pair is in the area, you will see no birds of any species, as far as the eye can see. As I said, birds of prey have a hooked beak for tearing its prey, and a crow doesnt. Now, crows are really a nuisance but they wont scare smaller birds away. We have a bird feeder, suet, and bird bath in our back yard, and at any time well have 5-10 birds of all species on the feeder, and at the same time we may also have as many as 4-6 crows in the area. Woodpeckers and Blue Jays will scare the smaller birds away much quicker. Weve had two hatchlings of black capped chickadees, and two hatchlings of cardinals in our birdhouses in the last two years, and the young did survive quite well, and were not bothered by other birds, including crows. Weve had as many a 27 species of birds in our back yard. Again, I dislike crows as much as any other nuisance bird, such as starlings and blue jays, but I guess we must live with them, after all it is nature. But, when one discusses anything they should know of what they speak. Wikipedia doesnt always have all the answers, and if you rely on it solely for information, youre in trouble. Being a wildlife artist/sculptor, primarily of waterfowl, with my work all over the world, there are many more species of birds which I find as annoying, and leave quite a mess, such as cattle egrets, and geese. Bill Ford Oak Run Please use our e-mail: editor@smcitizen.com I n most English speaking countries this last Tuesday was Shrove Tuesday, also commonly known as Pancake Day or Pancake Tuesday due to the tradition of eating pancakes on the day preceding Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. In the U.S., IHOP celebrates National Pancake Day by giving everyone a free short stack of pancakes. In return for the free pancakes, customers are asked to consider leaving a donation for Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals or other designated local charities. While enjoying my pancakes on Tuesday, I heard a few stories for you. LoverA young man was in love with two women and could not decide which of them to marry. Finally he went to a marriage counselor. When asked to describe his two loves, he noted that one was a great poet and the other made delicious pancakes. Oh said the counselor, I see what the problem is. You cant decide whether to marry for batter or verse. Illegal juice Then there was the time my brother and I went to a local pancake house. This place served real Vermont maple syrup but charged extra for it. We took a trip to the supermarket and bought our own bottle. Not wanting to get caught, we were forced to pass it between us syrupticiously.Short stacksThe commercialization of Pancake Day is unbelievable. Theres been milk, eggs and flour in the supermarket shelves for months now. A lot of pancake-making puns are really pour. Whether its a pancake or a baseball team, the secret is to start with a good batter. On April Fools Day, a girl put a firecracker under the pancakes. She blew her stack. Haunted French pancakes give me the crapes. Pancake Day is only day of the year where hitting the ceiling is just considered a bad toss. My friend has claimed shes made a Picasso inspired cubist pancake, but I think shes just waffling. In honor of Pancake Day, we were listening to musicians who played flat. One pancake said to the other pancake, See you on the flip side. Two eggs, a sausage, and a pancake walked into a bar. The bartender said, Sorry, we dont serve breakfast. The dogs nose is flatter than a pancake. He got it from chasing parked cars. The politicians were really at it this last week, so its also National Waffle Week. Waffle iron? Why on earth would you want to iron a waffle? No matter how bad the appetizer is in a German restaurant, the wurst is yet to come. TypicalMary offered to care for the eightyear-old daughter of neighbors who were going away for the weekend. On Saturday morning, she made breakfast, laying a generous portion of bacon and eggs in front of the child. Mummy always serves hot pancakes for breakfast, said the child. So Mary, very eager to oblige, hurried into the kitchen and quickly prepared some pancakes, which she laid in front of the girl. No, thank you, she said. But I thought you said your mother always has hot pancakes for breakfast! said Mary in surprise. She does, said the child. But I dont eat them! Full serviceA trucker came into a truck stop cafe and placed his order. He said, I want three flat tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running boards. The new waitress, not wanting to appear stupid, went to the kitchen and said to the cook, The trucker out there just ordered three flat tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running boards. What does he think this place is, an auto parts store? No, the cook said. Three flat tires mean three pancakes, a pair of headlights is two eggs sunny side up, and running boards are 2 slices of crisp bacon. Oh, OK! said the waitress.

Friday, March 7, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, March 7, 2014 BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the Citizen President Obama insists he does not regard the conflict in Ukraine as some Cold War chessboard in which we are in competition with Russia. Hed be more credible if he were not following his predecessors in acting as though the Cold War still exists. Although the Soviet empire, including its Warsaw Pact alliance, disbanded beginning in 1989, Republican and Democratic presidents have pursued aggressively anti-Russian policies up to the present. Most glaringly, NATO, the Western alliance created after World War II ostensibly to deter a Soviet invasion of Western Europe, did not also disband. On the contrary, at U.S. insistence and in violation of promises to Russias leaders, the alliance has grown and found new missions, such as intervening militarily against Russias ally Serbia and in Afghanistan and Libya. That would have been bad enough, but former members of the Soviet bloc, as well as former Soviet republics, have been admitted to NATO: Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia. Besides that, U.S. officials have talked up two other former Soviet republics, Georgia and surprise! Ukraine, as potential members of the alliance. Moreover, the U.S. government had a hand in the Georgian and Ukrainian color revolutions, which brought pro-U.S. politicians to power, at least for a time. The Obama administration is still at it today. The hostile push of NATO up to the doorstep of Russia (along with other threatening measures) has not gone unnoticed in Moscow. One can imagine the howls wed hear from American politicians, not least of all the ever-belligerent Sen. John McCain, if Russia were doing something similar in the vicinity of the United States. The sorry fact is that Americas rulers did much more than spike the football when the Soviet Union peacefully disintegrated. In every conceivable way, they exploited the occasion to assure that the United States would maintain its status as sole superpower and global hegemon. They humiliated Russias leadership, apparently not caring that it would never passively accept the insult. Its about time American politicians saw how their foreign policies look to those on the receiving end. Whats happening in Ukraine is sad. The country is divided between those who want closer ties to Western Europe and those who want closer ties to Russia. Since becoming independent of Russia, Ukraine has suffered corruption and worse offenses at the hands of legal plunderers. Now demonstrations in the streets even mob rule featuring neo-Nazis have resulted in turmoil and death, and the Russia-leaning president, Viktor Yanukovich, has fled the capital, while the parliament has named an interim replacement. To make things worse, outsiders wont keep their hands off. One thing we can know for sure and one need not be an admirer of Russian president Vladimir Putin to see it is that the United States should steer clear of Ukraine. It is none of the U.S. governments business whether that country is economically closer to Russia or the European Union (EU). The Obama administration should not only forswear direct and covert intervention, it should also shut up. American presidents must learn to mind their own business, even where Russia is concerned. T wo weeks ago we talked about Richie Incognito of the Miami Dolphins and his apparent hazing of a rookie teammate, hazing that had racial overtones. There has been much debate over the past few months about those activities, but last week it was discovered that Incognito was being treated for mental issues at an undisclosed facility. If only it were that easy to get bullies out of the way. The Dolphins issue raised the bar in discussions of bullying as people everywhere discussed what could be done about it. In my experience, not much at least in the past. I still suffer bad memories from the days when I was a victim at Don Bosco High School in Ramsey, New Jersey. When I was a freshman, I was bullied unmercifully, mainly on the school bus, and I wasnt alone. All the freshmen on the bus were subject to physical intimidation, being ordered to dogpile on the floor of the bus, and all the while the bus driver, who wanted to be one of the boys, was the perfect imitation of the not-yet-popular Sgt. Schultz of Hogans Heroes: I see nothing. It all happened on the way home. In the morning it was important that when we got to school we would look clean and neat. It was a Catholic boys school, and we had to wear shirts and ties every day. The ties usually came off immediately after the bus pulled out of the parking lot. I started at this particular school because it was just about three miles from home. But shortly after freshman year started, my parents moved us from Ramsey to Tenafly, and I suddenly had to take the bus. I still remember the name of the most prominent instigator of the bullying. Im not sure what I would do if I met him today, more than 50 years later, but I dont think it would be a reunion between long-lost friends. It got so bad that one day in the spring I walked out of school at lunch time, and walked and hitchhiked home. It was near the end of the school year, so my parents, who saw for the first time how upset I was, complained to the school. The next morning one of the two priests who ran the place with iron fists was on the bus, and this only added to the determination of the upperclassmen to pick on the freshmen when they had the chance. We hear a lot how bullying victims should tell someone, but I can tell you first-hand that isnt always a solution. Finally the school year ended, and mercifully I didnt have to take the bus the final day. I wanted to transfer to Bergen Catholic my sophomore year, but lacked one class, general science, that BC had for freshmen and Don Bosco didnt. So I went to the public school summer school, Tenafly High, and took science, and my mom also signed me up for another class typing. This turned out to be a decision that had a lifelong effect on me. I was already registered at Tenafly High, and already had a schedule, when Bergen Catholic called and they had a vacancy, since I now qualified. I wasnt sure at that point that I wanted to go there, but, in another good decision, my folks insisted on the Catholic school. It galls me every time I read about the football prowess of my first high school, how they play everywhere, how they often meet Bergen Catholic in state finals. I still, deep down, resent their ignoring of the bullies, and hope they lose every time BCHS plays them. I also wonder how the bus rides are nowadays for the freshmen. I hope its not a situation where they are picked on as much as we were. Maybe our suffering helped clean things up but somehow I have my doubts.

This coming weekend, move your clocks ahead one hour. Daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, which immediately becomes 3 a.m. If you forget to set your clocks ahead, you will probably be late for church Sunday morning. Its amazing how sometimes the human mind controls the body. Its only a one-hour time difference, yet for some reason it takes many people a week or more to adjust to the change. The one good thing that comes out of it is that, several years ago, someone had the good idea to link changing batteries in your smoke detectors to the time change. By making sure the batteries are fresh and operable, you could be saving lives, including your own. Daylight saving (not savings) time means that it will be dark later in the morning, a fact that puts some students in harms way as they wait for their buses in the dark. So if you have to drive early in the morning, make sure you watch out for youngsters heading for school. Of course it also means that there will be an extra hour of daylight in the evening, which means that bedtime for little ones will have to be adjusted, or else parents will face strong objections from youngsters whose bodies wont be ready to go to sleep. There wont even be an adjustment period for students. Spring break in Marion County doesnt start until Friday, March 21. Somehow, we wish that the powers-that-be would just say no more, and keep the time the same all year. Then we would face far fewer adjustments to our lives. But until that happens, take advantage of the sayings that urge you to change your batteries in your smoke detectors (and others, such as carbon monoxide, if you have them). Being careful may mean that youre around to change your clocks back next fall. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Change clocks, smoke detectors Tale of bullying from one who knows Obama should steer clear of Ukraine fighting READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor PLEASESEERICHMAN PAGE9 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Tea PartyNoted author Mark Levin, in his 2013 best seller The Liberty Amendments, explains how Article 5 of The Constitution allows two methods for creating a Convention for considering Amendments to the Constitution. The first is a two thirds vote in both houses of Congress and the second is a request, to Congress, by two thirds, or 34 of our state legislatures. All proposed amendments from a Convention must then be approved by three fourth, or 38 of the state legislatures. Levin lists 10 amendments that he believes will return our federal government to the founders principles and to our control. His amendments would include term limits for members of Congress and the Supreme Court, limits on federal spending and taxes, limits on the federal bureaucracy and protection of free enterprise, voting and private property. Our current members of Congress will never voluntarily vote for a Constitutional Convention that would endanger their opportunities for a long lucrative career in Washington. Their loyalty is to their party and their campaign contributors, not to us. Their main concern is which of the two parties we select with our votes. What we see as the choice between two evils, the winning majority will see as an endorsement to direct our government to further increase their partys reach and power. A division of power between the two parties gives us our current gridlock government. Obtaining a convention request from 34 state legislatures would take a dedicated effort by a large number of motivated people in each of our 50 states. But the Tea Party may be the group that can get some changes started. They have a nationwide organization and PLEASESEELETTERS PAGE9 OBrien 3rd Flight: 1st-Kim Hessel, 2nd-Mary Kay Frandsen Diana Galla captured the prize for closest to the pin. Good games, ladies!

come to the clubhouse at noon for a delicious meal and some fun conversation. Just be sure to also bring a dish to share and a place setting. I find it is such fun to make enough food to share and maybe show off a favorite dish or two. Even if it is purchased at the grocery store. Every dish is appreciated and enjoyed and so is the company of our friends and neighbors. Thermo-Cool Seminar On March 19 at 11 a.m., there will be a great opportunity for folks to learn how to maintain their A/C system and keep it in great condition for the summer months coming fast. We can do so much ourselves to keep our system in tip top condition. This seminar is well worth the time to prevent the high cost of replacing our systems sooner than necessary. Sashay into the clubhouse and sign up with Geri as she needs a head count. There will also be food involved from Thermo-Cool. How cool is that?Sock HopSaturday, March 22, 7 to 10 p.m., come dance at the clubhouse just for the fun of it. The dance is free to our Cherrywood residents and their guests. No cost to attend, no 50/50 raffle. Bring your drinks, snacks and list of your favorite music to sing along or dance to for our delightful DJ Rich Becotte. Another terrific opportunity to show your new neighbor or guest, what a really great place Cherrywood is, to live.TriviaWednesday, March 19, 7 p.m., you cant imagine the fun until you try it. Easy Peasy to play. How often do we say to another, what is the name of that movie star I liked so much? Hours later you might get the answer. Well, with Trivia you have team partners who can guess the multiple choice answers right along with you. Somebody is bound to get it right. This month the questions will be presented by our real writer, John Everlove. The subjects are, St. Patricks Day, general knowledge, geography, entertainment and sports. Amazing how each subject can produce a laugh and a smile and even a correct answer. Where else can you have so much fun for only $1? Our Trivia players have donated more than $400 to the Wounded Warrior Project in 2013. For 2014, we are supporting Patriot Dogs Charity. Such worthy causes benefit from such a good time. Climb out of your recliner or lawn chair and come join us in our Cherrywood activities. There truly is something for everyone.Yard salesOur Cherrywood Yard Sales this year will be on the first Saturdays in April and October. Our next one will be our spring yard sale on April 5 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dont forget and please do not put your items out the night before, as that can cause problems. Put them out first thing Saturday morning and we hope it will be a wonderful, sunny, productive day. Im sure we have all found that moment when the piece of furniture or knick knack we couldnt live without, has lost its luster and needs to be loved by someone else. Cherrywood ChirpOur Chirp magazine is placed in our buddy box on the 1st of every month. To all of our new neighbors, and some not so new, you will find all the information you need about the happenings in our wonderful community of Cherrywood. Activities, entertainment, thank you notes, letters from our military. Birthdays, anniversaries, travel opportunities. If you dont find a Chirp rolled up in your buddy box under your mailbox, please get one from Geri in the clubhouse office and tell her to notify the delivery person to leave one in your box. These little magazines are invaluable information to keep track of all the great happenings in our mini spot on the planet. We surely dont want to miss the opportunity to meet and get to know our neighbors. Thats why we live in a community instead of alone in the middle of 20 acres. Please check the last page in this months Chirp. There is a Disaster Preparedness Survey that is an important part of life in a community. Fill it out folks, it could save your life. All it takes is a really windy day and a tree on top of a house, to change your life forever.Clubhouse After attending a private party in our beautiful Cherrywood Clubhouse recently, I am wondering if most of our residents are aware that it is a great place to entertain and is available to us all for a refundable charge or no charge. What is required is to notify Geri for a reservation and to clean up all that is used, afterward. How nice is that? What a great way to hold a birthday party or anniversary with all your friends and not have to figure out how your own house will hold all the precious people you would like to invite. Just a NoteJust so you readers know, I havent been writing all of this by myself. John has done the writing for the Veterans Club activities and today for the Accordion Club. Geri gives me good outlines of items that need covered. This writing gig has been a team effort. Its been a while since I have really been obligated to do something. I find it pushes me a bit and I like it. I love the idea of periodically filling in for John to give him a break (we love you John) and this requires that I become more aware and active in my own neighborhood. Jim (my own dearly beloved) and I have always deeply appreciated what we have here in Cherrywood.

Invitations also have been extended to the local Republican Party and to the League of Women Voters. The Tampa Bay Times, in an editorial March 2, noted that Gov Scott has pursued a purge of voter rolls that threatened to disenfranchise minority voters; the county elections supervisors revolted. He signed into law restrictions on early voting; the public outcry forced changes. Thus we must exercise eternal vigilance in order to ensure that all eligible voters are able to exercise their right to vote. No matter how well our citizens are served in Marion County problems do occur here and elsewhere. The Friday Forum is open to all who wish to join in civil community dialogue. It meets at 11:30 a.m. on the second Friday of each month at Buffet City, State Road 200 and MLK Jr. Blvd. Cost is $10 payable directly to the restaurant.

PANCAKESCONTINUED FROM PAGE 24 and playing guitar. Such a joyful sound. Chatting over the fence with people walking or bicycling past and sometimes never knowing their names but always knowing their smiles or waves. Our home before was always filled with love and surrounded by wonderful neighbors, but we all worked and were raising families and were on the road more than at home. It was quite a different life than the one we are living now. The slower pace doesnt seem very slow but standing back and really looking, shows that now we have the time to take care of each other. Even if we dont know each other, we take care. We are also ever so grateful for this Florida weather. No place, no community, no person, can ever be perfect. There is always a wart to be found just down the street or on your left foot. So much easier to be happy with warmer temperatures (unless you are a snowboarder) and warm hearted people. We have also found the Ocala young people to be almost always, courteous and quick to smile. What a pleasure those smiles are. Must be the weather.

It was just a month ago that the task force on dog tethering made its recommendation to the County Commission: prohibit unsupervised tethering. The move came after weeks of meetings and several weeks of discussion by the public at Commission meetings that resulted in the appointment of the panel. But on Tuesday, the tethering issue apparently died a quick death in just 60 seconds. Commissioner David Moore, speaking under Commission Comments, raised the issue that was not on the agenda, and made a motion that the recommendations of the task force be adopted in a revision of the animal control ordinance. Chairman Carl Zalak waited a moment, but no one spoke. The motion dies for lack of a second, Zalak said, and the meeting moved ahead. There had been one person, Patricia Reed, signed up to speak about the issue, but Zalak announced at the beginning of the public portion of the meeting that she was not available. Arguments against tethering at the time of discussions said that dogs can become overly aggressive, and that in some cases there was cruelty involved. Those who were against the ban had argued that the county already has animal cruelty laws that could be enforce, and some indicated that government was overstepping its bounds by telling people what they could do with their animals in their own yard, as long as it wasnt harmful to the dogs. In other business, Zalak expressed concerns over a recent union agreement with the sheriff that calls for raises for deputies. The financial agreement was done without consulting commissioners, Zalak said, and will have an effect as the countyprepares next years budget.
