Colvin, Acting Commissioner of Social Security, announced the launch of a new disability process to expedite disability claims filed by veterans with a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability compensation rating of 100% Permanent & Total (P&T). Under the new process, Social Security will treat these veterans applications as high priority and issue expedited decisions, similar to the way the agency currently handles disability claims from Wounded Warriors. We have reached another milestone for those who have sacrificed so much for our country and this process ensures they will get the benefits they need quickly, said Acting Commissioner Colvin. While we can never fully repay them for their sacrifices, we can be sure we provide them with the quality of service that they deserve. This initiative is truly a lifeline for those who need it most. No one wants to put Americas veterans through a bureaucratic runaround, said Maryland Congressman John Sarbanes, a leading proponent for increasing assistance to veterans. As the baby boomer generation ages and more veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan need care, this common sense change will help reduce backlogs and cut through unnecessary red tape so that our most disabled veterans receive the benefits theyve earned. In order to receive the expedited service, veterans must tell Social Security they have a VA disability compensation rating of 100 percent P&T and show proof of their disability rating with their VA Notification Letter. The VA rating only expedites Social Security disability claims processing and does not guarantee an approval for Social Security disability benefits. These veterans must still meet the strict eligibility requirements for a disability allowance. For information about this service, please visit www.socialsecurity.gov/pgm/disabilitypt.htm. For more about Social Securitys handling of Wounded Warriors disability claims, please visit www.socialsecurity.gov/woundedwarriors.

Above is one of the vehicles on display, while at the right is DJ Garry White who was in charge of the show, which drew about 100 vehicles. More photos on Page 6. (Photos by Ron Ratner) Zero tolerance policies to be discussed at Forum Local and statewide efforts to ease the inflexibility of zero tolerance policies in our schools is the topic of the April 11 Friday Forum of Marion County which meets this Friday at 11:30 a.m. at Buffet City, State Road 200 and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Panelists include retired educator Nancy Noonan and former Marion County NAACP president Whitfield Jenkins, both members of the Awake Marion juvenile justice committee; and Capt. Alicia Walker and Sgt. Claude McQuaig, both of the Marion County Sheriffs Office Juvenile Justice Division. Invitations also have been extended to the Ocala Police Chief and to the Public Defender as well as to the Marion County School Board. While intended to reduce drugs and violence in our schools, zero tolerance policies have sometimes resulted in absurdly unfair consequences for trivial infractions, with minority children especially targeted according to Ray Seaman, online director of Progress Florida, who will moderate. The nonpartisan speaker/luncheon series, open to all, meets on the second Friday of each month to engage in civil community dialogue about important issues affecting Marion County. The $10 charge, payable directly to the restaurant, includes the buffet, tax, tip and a drink. For more information and to RSVP please email FridayForumofMarionCounty@gmail.com or telephone Delphine Herbert (352-873-9970) or Jan Lentz (352425-6219).

Editors Note: Part of this story was inadvertently omitted last week. It is being repeated in its entirety here.Ocala Health has named Kelli Potenza and Richard Wolf winners of the 2013 Frist Humanitarian Award. Potenza was recognized in the employee category; Wolf was named for the volunteer category. The Frist Humanitarian Award is awarded annually and is the highest honor an employee or volunteer can receive at HCA, the parent company of Ocala Health. The Frist Humanitarian Awards were created to recognize individuals at each HCA-affiliated facility who demonstrate extraordinary concern for the welfare and happiness of patients and their community. The Frist Humanitarian Awards are given annually in recognition of the humanitarian spirit and philanthropic work of the late Dr. Thomas F. Frist, Sr., a founder of HCA. National recipients will be honored in the spring at a reception at the companys Nashville, Tenn., headquarters. Kelli Potenza has worked for Ocala Health since 2001. Potenza currently serves as the Bariatric Clinical Coordinator at Ocala Regional Medical Center. She and her husband, Christopher, are proud parents of four adopted special needs children. Potenza mentors children in the foster care system as well as at-risk teens at the Heart of Florida Youth Ranch. Her passion for adoption can be shown by her regular teaching of the Mode Approach to Partnerships and Parenting Class for the Youth and Family Alternatives Adoption Agency. Potenza also volunteers as a summer camp nurse, assists with childrens bible study at church, and helps with a Christianbased sports program, Upward Sports. Potenza and her family volunteer together and deliver hot meals and blankets to the homeless. In addition to her humanitarian efforts, Potenza recently earned her Master of Science in Nursing degree. Richard Dick Wolf has been a volunteer with Ocala Health since April 1988, starting at Ocala Regional and then West Marion Community Hospital. In addition to his work at the hospitals, Wolf is active with Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), and plays Santa Claus at local elementary schools and nursing homes in Ocala. He also participates in a reading buddy program through Marion County Public Schools. Ocala Health is committed to delivering quality patient care. We are extremely proud to recognize Kelli and Dick for their efforts on behalf of our patients and our community, said Randy McVay, Ocala Health CEO. Their exemplary work and compassion set a high standard and were proud to have them in our organization. Our patients benefit from the kind of commitment to humanitarian concerns they demonstrate each day.

The idea of doing a mural had been in the works for a number of years, reports Bev Ringenberg, festival coordinator. The 16 x 16 mural painted by Travis Parks, a local Cedar Key Artist, was inspired by Ann Kamzelskis digitally enhanced photograph of Cedar Keys much photographed Honeymoon Cottage. The artwork, which is on the eastside of the Historic Lutterloh Building at 457 2nd Street, faces the Cedar Key Arts Centers Sculpture Garden providing a perfect backdrop for the larger-than-life Mosaic Fisherman that was completed several years ago. Following the dedication ceremony, attendees were invited upstairs for the Opening of the Arts Centers April Exhibit entitled Years of Arts Festivals in Cedar Key. The exhibit, which is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, invites visitors to Step Back in Time and learn a little Cedar Key Art History. So, head on over to Cedar Key this weekend, 60 miles southwest of Gainesville at the end of State Road 24, in the center of Floridas Nature Coast. In addition to checking out the mural and Arts Center exhibit, you will find much to do 120 fine artists and craftsman, art demonstrations Saturday and Sunday afternoon, kids activities (including fish rubbing, face painting and even a Crazy Hair booth), great food, fun music and more in this island community.

Friday, April 11, 2014~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, April 11, 2014 www.smcitizen.com SKYWAY By Bill DeYoung In painstaking detail Bill DeYoung recreates that terrible morning of May 9, 1980 when the enormous ship Summit Venture rammed the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, collapsing it and sending 35 people to their deaths in the dark water below. The books chilling cover shows Dick Hornsbuckles yellow Buick just 14 inches from oblivion. Its four passengers, unharmed, got out of the car and ran to warn oncoming vehicles. So what happened to cause this gut-wrenching tragedy and who was at fault? That day harbor pilot Captain John Lerro was guiding the 606-foot phosphate ship Summit Venture toward the Port of Tampa when a sudden, vicious storm cell with blinding rain and near-hurricane force winds came out of nowhere. Without radar or visibility Lerro relied on buoys and on deck lookouts. Sadly, he was well wide of the 800-foot center span. When he struck the bridge four cars and a Greyhound bus plummeted from the missing road span. Miraculously, one driver survived: Wesley MacIntire woke up suddenly as if jolted from a nightmare. Then he noticed the green water pouring in through the space where his windshield had been. He was at the bottom of the shipping channel, the trucks rear end planted in the silt. His little trucks fall had been broken by the port bow of the Summit Venture. He suffered no lifethreatening injuries. Although Lerro was assigned the blame, there were plenty of early warning signs about cost-cutting in the construction of the bridge from foundation pilings driven into sand instead of bedrock and concrete used instead of stronger steel. There were also cracks detected before the bridge was officially opened. Years after the disaster there were still victims. Wes McIntire suffered greatly from survivor guilt before dying of cancer in 1989. Captain John Lerro was a broken man who was stigmatized by the press, divorced by his wife, his only child taunted by schoolmates, nearly broke, and then diagnosed with multiple sclerosis a year after the tragedy. He died in 2002. Skyway is a skillfully written, suspenseful breakdown of an awful series of cause and effect. A quick read at only 300 pages and highly recommended.

Dear Readers, there simply is not enough time in a week to do all the fun things there are to do in Oak Run. It really is special that not only are there plays, concerts, exercise classes, there are also groups around the community playing games such as Mah Jongg (love it), hand and foot, bridge and more. I even played Dominoes with the number tiles and that was fun. Of course dont forget the various state clubs, dance clubs, computer classes, ceramics etc .When you read news from Bocce you will see they are encouraging all residents to come join them. It sounds like they have a good time. Last but not least it is pool time so get out your suit and visit one of the many pools. In your spare time stop at the library for a book to read. And on your travel around the community remember the speed limit is 30 mph. We all want to be safe. So lets read on! LauraDonut Drop-InSaturday, April 12 is donuts and coffee time. This is a great time to greet your fellow neighbors. Ron and Jan, your hosts invite all residents to stop in from 8 to 10 a.m. and enjoy a yummy donut.

He converts to Christianity to advance his career as a champion fencer and Olympic hero, but is caught up in the Holocaust. Finally, the grandson, after surviving war, revolution, loss and betrayal, realizes that his ultimate allegiance must be to himself and his heritage. We will have a delicious family style lunch.

With folks continually texting and checking their apps, face-to-face conversation is fast becoming a lost art. National Healthcare Decisions Day on April 16 is a good reminder to turn off your phone and have the most important conversation of your lifeyour wishes for endof-life care. The hardest part of the conversation is getting up the courage to start it; then see how fast someone looks away when you bring up this subject. To help get the conversation going, a clever new approach to this difficult subject is an old-fashioned card game. Remember playing Go Fish as children? Everyone has played that game, so there isnt anyone who cant relate to it. Young and old can sit around the table and play with the soulsearching version called Go Wish. The goal is not to get rid of all your cards, but rather to put your cards on the table, letting your family and friends know what is important to you and how they can support you. Go Wish is no gimmick. It is the result of much study and funded by a grant to educate elders and their families about advanced planning. It was developed and field-tested to stimulate discussion in a positive way on the values and wishes about end-of-life care. It is an effective tool for those with limited cognition but not so simplistic for those with higher thinking skills. In essence, it works for everyone. Deal Me In Each of the 36 cards has a short statement that people often cite as being important to them in the last weeks or months of life. In solitaire mode, the player sorts and prioritizes the statements. It is a visual way to communicate your wishes. You can also play in pairs or groups. The point is not to create an I want list, but to encourage discussion about what is important and why. Rather than the often blank expression one would receive to the question: What is the most important issue to you? the Go Wish cards provide vocabulary and ideas that give voice to concerns and an opportunity to personalize them. The game is never dull. Many people remark after playing the game several times, the way they sort the cards changes, helping them redefine their thinking and how their values might apply in different situations. A case reported in the Journal of Palliative Medicine demonstrates the impact care planning has on exposing quality of life issues and identifying actions amenable to intervention, such as with someone who is in a non-verbal state. A patients wife wrote: Mikes passing was so peaceful and exactly the way he wanted. I want to thank you because if you hadnt loaned me the Go Wish cards, I would not have known he wanted to be at home with everyone around him; that he knew we cared about him and he lived a worthwhile life. He was also aware that we were touching him. These are all things he picked from the cards. What a lucky man to have the end just the way he wished for. How Do I Get Started? Whether you play cards, fill out Living Wills together or have a frank talk around the kitchen table, just do itfor yourself and your family. It is the best gift you can ever give them. Go Wish cards are available at www.codaalliance.org ($24 for two packs) Play Go Wish for free online at www.gowish.org Living Wills are downloadable at www.hospiceofmarion.com/advance-directives.html (FREE) Five Wishes booklets are also free at Hospice of Marion County, 3231 SW 34th Ave., Ocala, FL 34474 On April 16, representatives will be available at Munroe Regional Medical Center, Ocala Regional Medical Center and West Marion Hospital to explain and distribute all three options. Information will also be on display at the following Marion County Public Library Branches: Main Headquarters, Belleview, Dunnellon, Forest, Freedom and Marion Oaks. Call 352-854-5230 for more information. Sitting back and listening at various meetings, especially those of the County Commission, one gets the feeling that there are a lot of people out there who feel combining some services would be more efficient, both in operation and financing. Recently there has been some work putting together dispatching services of the city and the county to enhance the 911 system so calls would not have to be rerouted. At the last commission meeting, the sheriff spoke of getting all county emergency personnel operating on the same 800 mhz radio frequencies so the agencies could easily hear what is going on in other areas, and in the cities. There is evidently already some cooperation. I live in the city, but when somebody on my block gets ill, its usually County Fire Rescue that responds. To be honest, no one cares, as long as help gets here quickly. All these working-together efforts are noble goals, and I heartily endorse such actions. But it brings back memories of something that happened just three months after I moved to Florida in 1968. On Oct. 1 of that year, wild celebrations, parades, etc. were held in Jacksonville as that city and Duval County consolidated into one government. It was the culmination of a three-year effort spearheaded by people who were tired of corruption. Eleven officials in the city and county were accused of misconduct during the early part of the 1960s. Voters in four cities refused to approve the plan, so Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach, Atlantic Beach, all on the ocean, and Baldwin, in the western part of the county, remained independent. However in a quirk made necessary because the consolidated government was actually the county commission, and the mayor was over the whole county, residents of those four cities vote in Jacksonville elections and are eligible for some services. The constitutionally mandated Duval Sheriffs Office became the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office, JSO, having been consolidated with the Jacksonville Police Department. The consolidation had some bragging rights. Jacksonville became, at that time, the largest city in Florida population-wise. It also became the largest city in land area in the world, but has since been surpassed by Juneau, Alaska, which must have annexed a whole lot of ice to get that title. If Ocala and Marion County were consolidated, and if some of the smaller cities joined in, we would become a city bigger than Rhode Island (we also brag were bigger as a county now than that state). We could, as one city, offer all sorts of recreation, including hunting and fishing, Silver Springs and Rainbow Springs parks, along with a host of smaller ones, and city facilities stretching from what is now northern Ocala all the way to the south county line along U.S. Highway 441. Many of us may not live long enough to see this happen, but it would be nice to see some people start talking about the possibility in the future. Maybe someday we could get rid of city and School Board suing each other over our money, and maybe we could have just one, efficient government with no duplication of services and, more importantly, no duplication of fees and taxes. Too much to ask? Probably. But lets think about it, anyway. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Those against the unattended tethering ban didnt get their way one was put into effect. Those who were in favor of a tethering ban werent pleased with a loophole that allows people to perform tasks for up to 30 minutes and leave their dogs tethered without anyone present. And people who didnt care one way or the other were turned off by the behavior of the pro-dog people. A compromise probably was the only way that something was going to get passed. As it was, the 3-2 vote was hardly a mandate. However, the split vote came after one of the most rowdy meetings that have taken place in the County Commission auditorium. The people who backed the ban of unattended tethering had a noble cause the protection of animals. However, that was no cause for the audience to behave the way it did. The backers applauded mightily as each speaker who backed the ban got up and gave their views, and booed when anyone, including the chairman, dared oppose their view. They acted as if only their view could be heard, and in a complete lack of understanding of the democratic process tried to shout down those who disagreed with them. Chairman Carl Zalak tried to have the crowd tone it down, but the spectators ignored him, and proper decorum, in their behavior. When a couple of commissioners expressed reservations about the ban and whether it would be enforceable, or when Zalak mentioned about the possibility of infringing on individual freedoms, they shouted out threats such as were not going away, and also pointedly interrupted out loud that they would have their say come election day. We feel that there already was a cruelty law on the books, and that this law should be enforced before any new ones are passed. We also consider this new law unenforceable, because unless animals were tethered in front yards, it would be possible for enforcement people to see them from the road. They would have to rely on neighbors turning in their neighbors. That could lead to all sorts of bad blood. The 30-minute loophole would also be hard to enforce. If a deputy or animal control officer confronts a homeowner, he could just say that he was performing a task for a few minutes. The parts we do like are the ones that say that any dog to be temporarily tethered must be spayed or neutered, and that they cannot be tethered on a vacant lot. One commissioner, a few meetings ago, said, No one is going to tell me what I can do with my dog in my backyard. Unfortunately, she led the compromise move last week. Hopefully, people who attended or watched last weeks meeting wont get any ideas for acting that way in the future.

Things were being accomplished and I was rather enjoying myself. Dutifully, I was checking off item after item on my to-do-list. I love it when a plan comes together. However, at the top of my exuberance, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage stopped me dead in my tracks with a query. She is quite famous, or is it infamous, for pulling these kinds of things on Yours Truly. She has a question for just about every event. Most of her questions are beyond answering, at least for me. For instance, when we are traveling, she will wait for the right moment and then put to me this query. Do you know where youre going? A variety of ways to answer that question immediately suggests itself, not all of which would endear me to her. However, to be honest, and who doesnt want to be honest these days, the answer to that question is usually a mumbled No. Just as we get into the car and get ready to go, she asks another question. Do you have everything you need? Invariably, I do not, and have to go back into the house and pick up what I left behind. I could do my own Left Behind series. Then there is the all time favorite question. Does this dress make me look fat? Just between you and me, one of these times, I am going to answer, No, Honey, its not the dress making you look fat. I am saving that one for a deathbed confession. However, this past week when I was flying high, she dropped me dead in my tracks with another question. Have you filed our income tax yet? It was at that moment my whole world came crashing down. I had not even given it a first thought, let alone a second thought. Why is it, although income tax filing day comes every year on the same day I always forget? I am getting either senile or moving towards going into politics. I am hoping for the former. Of all the things I love doing in this world, and there are plenty, paying my income tax each year does not rate number one. Do not get me wrong, I really enjoy shelling out my hard-earned money and sending it to politicians to invest in one of their pork projects. Every time I have a little extra cash in my pocket, I always wonder what that happy crowd in Washington, D.C., could do with it. Usually I am tempted to send it to them along with a little note that says, Spend it with my compliments. To be quite honest, there are few things I enjoy more than filing my income tax each year. One would be calling the telephone company to straighten out my telephone bill. This is good for an Why I am happy to pay my taxes and other every April 15 entire day of delightful conversation with idiots. Every time I think my life cannot get any lower and drabber than it is, I simply pick up the telephone and call customer service at my friendly telephone company. Within three minutes, (after I had been put on hold for 27 minutes) I recognize exactly how wonderful my life truly is. Probably the most magnificent thing about calling customer service is that you know somebodys going to get it all screwed up and you will have the pleasure of doing it all over again next week. A wonderful ongoing relationship that is priceless. Another activity I enjoyed doing more than filing my income tax is spending five whole days in bed with the flu. Nothing could be more delightfully entertaining. Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 LANDINGCONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 Friday, May 2 The SPCAs Gone Bunco Were calling all bunco guys and gals to join us at our fundraiser called The SPCA of Marion Countys Gone Bunco.

Just think of it, five whole days to luxuriate in your bed and not have to get up and do a thing. Talk about a vacation! What with the sneezing and coughing, and your nose running like the mighty Mississippi, and your head thumping like an African bongo drum, what more could a person ask for? If somebody calls for you during that time, all your wife has to say is, Hes in bed with the flu. Everybody understands that. Of course, if she said you are just in bed, people would not accept that and think a little poorly of you. But if you have diarrhea along with the flu, that is spectacular. Not only do you get to lie in bed, but also you get a little exercise, jumping up and running to the bathroom every 3 1/2 seconds. The side benefit of this is you lose some weight during that week. One more thing slightly more exciting than filing your income taxes, is poking yourselves in the eye. I must confess this a favorite of mine because every time I do it, I learn new dance steps. Alas, when the swelling dies down I cannot remember those dance steps. Therefore, paying my income tax each year is included in some of my favorite activities. Even Jesus got into the discussion of paying taxes. When queried on this subject he replied, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesars, and to God the things that are Gods (Mark 12:17). When I think of all the money wasted in our country, especially by our government, I grieve. Someone once said, Money in the hands of a fool always goes for foolish things. How a person spends his or her money reveals a lot about that person.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

We had ours done recently, not because we were having problems but because we didnt want any problems in the future. So have yours checked. If you dont have a septic tank then dont have it checked.Changing timesIts sad to say but due to the changing times I think it would be advisable to have a neighborhood watch. Neighbors watching out for neighbors. We have to keep a watch out for unusual things happening. If you see someone at your neighbors house that is not normal, call your neighbor or call SCN security. See you in 2 weeks. Regards from JanJan Liberio resides in Spruce Creek North with her husband Jim. She can be reached via e-mail at JnLiber@aol.com.

I heard the heavens are going to fall today, said the sparrow. Oh, said the rabbit, and I suppose your spindly little legs can hold up the heavens. One does what one can, said the sparrow. One does what one can! Our area has many volunteers in retirement communities, hospitals, libraries, places of worship, and elsewhere. Like the sparrow, each one does what one can. They sure can use your help. Consider being a volunteer and then act on it. PUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 18 coffeean unbelievable value at $3. According to Joe Raffony, who has run the breakfast for a number of years, the Mothers Day breakfast, plus two or three others during the year, started in 2001 by Dennis McGuire, who is no longer with us. Joe started running the breakfast in 2007, carrying on the same format as Dennis. Last year Paula and Al Boucher volunteered to do the bulk of the preparation, such as selling tickets, buying food etc., with support from Joe to get the help needed to serve the breakfast and coordinate who does what. They graciously volunteered to continue to do so this year. There are normally 25 to 30 people working that morning; and for many years, the breakfast has sold upward of 200 tickets. In fact, it was not uncommon in the early years to sell out on the first day of ticket sales. If youd like a terrific breakfast brought to you by wonderful volunteers, get a ticket to this popular event. And did I mention that theres something special for all the Moms who attend?DancercizeThe first Dancercize class met Thursday, April 3, and Marilyn and Dawn Pineau led the group through some warm up exercises and preliminary dance steps. I was surprised at how quickly they caught on, said Marilyn. This class is beneficial not only for exercising, but is great to improve your balance and stability. And most important, we all enjoyed ourselves. Both Marilyn and Dawn have extensive dance backgrounds, Marilyn in ballroom dance and Dawn in ballet. They choreographed the Marion Landing Rock-O-Lettes for many years, practicing weekly and entertaining the community with many holiday-themed routines. They now bring their dance expertise to Dancercize, sharing an activity they both love. If you would like to give Dancercize a try, theres still room in the class for more students, so sign up on the sheet posted on the Activity Board. The class meets each Thursday morning at 9 a.m., its free and its loads of fun.

Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents who are nominated for the award by their peers, and we are seeking nominations of residents not previously recognized. Seeking nominationsAlthough most people volunteer because of their love for someone or somethingtheir family, their friends, their neighbors, their communitynot expecting anything in return, its always nice to recognize those people who selflessly donate their time and talents for the better good.

Evening Worship begins at 6 p.m. with a special Easter Musical presented by the Sanctuary Choir and Drama Team entitled, On A Hill Too Far Away under the direction of Music Minister, Peter Bunch. This powerful and convicting story in music and drama challenges us to put the Cross of Christ back into the center of our lives. For the Cross on which Jesus Christ died is central to our Christian faith, it cannot be explained away, it cannot be ignored, it cannot be stripped of its cruelty and shame, and it cannot and will not be denied. The way of the Cross leads us Home. You are invited to come and share with us this wonderful and marvelous musical story. There is no admission charge and all are welcome.

During our regular morning worship service, which begins at 10:30 a.m., we will celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who left His life as Gods Son in Heaven to come to earth to live among us as one of us to show us the way back to God. He was willing to give up the glory of Heaven and then to die for our sins on a cruel cross, so that we might be forgiven by God and allowed to spend eternity with Him in Heaven when we leave this earth. What could be more important to any human being than spending eternity with God and Jesus Christ in Heaven and all the other Christians who have committed their lives to living for Christ here on earth. You are lovingly invited to come and share this special day of celebration with us on Easter Sunday. Southwest Christian Church is a traditional worshiping church. Our worship service includes the beloved old-time Gospel hymns together with some of todays contemporary choruses. We preach and teach strictly from Gods Word. We believe the entire Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God given to us by God through His chosen writers, to enable us to know Him and to understand how to live our lives in the way He requires, so that we might be pleasing and acceptable to Him. We seek to teach those desiring to follow Him, who God is and who He expects us to be. If you are seeking a church where you are loved by God and His people in a truly Christian way, we invite you to come and visit with us to see if we are the church you are seeking.

For information, contact the church office at 352-489-5881, visit www.PeaceLutheranOnline.com or visit Peace on Facebook at www.TinyURL.com/Peac e41-40. Bible Baptist ChurchBible Baptist Church has expanded its ministry and now has two campuses to worship Jesus in, according to David Lambert, Pastor. The Southeast Campus is at 3401 SE Lake Weir Ave., phone 352-622-8750. Sunday Worship: 10:30 a.m.; Childrens Church: 10:30 a.m. Wednesday Choir Practice 5:30 p.m.; Wednesday Bible Study 6:30 p.m. The Southwest Campus is at 7651 SW State Road 200 in Circle Square Plaza. Sunday Worship 8:45 a.m.; Sunday Evening 6 p.m. Our Mission Statement is: Relevant preaching, community impact, radical compassion. We are a Bible believing, Bible preaching, and a Bible teaching church. Our website is: Biblebaptistocala.comTemple Bnai DaromTemple Bnai Darom will be holding a Passover Seder at the Temple, 49 Banyan Course, Ocala on Monday night, April 14 at 6. A traditional Seder service will be conducted by our spiritual leader, Rabbi Harold Jaye followed by a full seder dinner. Choice of main course will be brisket or chicken. Cost per person is $28.50. For reservations or information call Elaine at 352-789-5617 or Anne at 352-245-1212. Chabad Jewish CenterFew Jewish holidays evoke the same warm sentiments as Passover. Memories of family and friends gathered as the four cups of wine are poured, the four questions asked and the Matzah served, all contribute to Passovers popularity in the Jewish community. Bringing the warmth and tradition of this festival to the Ocala and The Villages Community, The Chabad Jewish Center is inviting all residents to participate in community Seder to be held on Monday, April 14, 7:30 p.m. The Seders take participants through the wondrous liberation of our ancestors from Egyptian bondage, while sharing the relevance and beauty of the age old festival in our modern lives. Included in the Seder will be a delectable catered dinner paired with a variety of fine kosher wine and handmade round Shmurah Matzah from Israel. Passover is not simply a celebration of the historic liberation of an ancient people, said Rabbi Yossi Hecht, Director, of The Chabad Jewish Center. Passover is about our own personal liberation physically, emotionally and spiritually. Passover inspires us to break free from the shackles restraining us from reaching new heights in our lives, relationships and connection with G-d. Additionally Holiday Services will be held throughout the entire Passover Holiday at The ChabadJewish Center, 3509 SW 34th Ave. Circle. All are welcome to join the community seder, regardless of Jewish affiliation or background. Reservations can be made online at www.jewishmarion.org Friday, April 11, 2014~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, April 11, 2014 www.smcitizen.com RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 I think summer has finally arrived. Thank goodness, as one never knew what to wear on any given day. Now its summer clothes every day.Lasagna Night changedDue to unforeseen circumstances, Lasagna Night at Spruce Creek North has been changed from April 12 to April 26. Tickets were sold April 2 and 3 and will be sold again on April 16. The night should be called all homemade night because the social committee will be hard at work making homemade lasagna. There will be lasagna, salad, Italian bread dessert, coffee or tea, all for $12. Angie from Palm Cay will be the entertainer and 50/50 will be played. The next and last event until after the summer will be the Memorial Day picnic. There will be hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, desserts and of course coffee or tea. This will be on Memorial Day, May 26. Cost will be determined by the ever-rising food prices. Will be announced later.An old Ann Landers articleI came across an old column of mine in reference to an old Ann Landers article and feel it is worth repeating. An estate planner wrote this to Ann. Over the years I have seen clients change their wills or trusts by passing up children and grandchildren and leaving their money to friends, charities or people who were kind to them. Let this be a wake-up call to all sons, daughters and grandchildren. The message I want to convey is this: Your inheritance is not automatic. Its a gift. There are many reasons for changing a will or trust, but the two most common are disrespect and isolation. In some families the only time the old folks see the grandchildren is when their parents need a favor (usually its money). So the message the old folks wish to convey is as follows: You didnt have time for me when I was lonely and would have enjoyed your company so why should I leave you the money I worked and saved for all my life? Wake up out there. An inheritance isnt something that is owed you. When there is no love, there should be no gift. Lasagna Night rescheduled for April 26 Spruce Creek North Jan Liberio PLEASESEECREEK, PAGE22 April is National Volunteer Month. The benefits extend beyond helping others. Persons who volunteer usually find it helps to improve their mental and physical health. There is research that shows that it can extend the volunteers life.

Our clubs are always in need of new faces for the many tasks needed. April is also Stress Awareness Month.

National Volunteer Week, April 6-12, is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities. This year marks the 40th anniversary of National Volunteer Week, demonstrating the enduring importance of recognizing our countrys volunteers for their vital contributions.Fire saleA fire started on a farm hayfield near one of our rural communities. The volunteer fire department arrived in a dilapidated old fire truck that rumbled straight into the middle of the flames. The firemen jumped off the truck and frantically started spraying water in all directions. Soon they had snuffed out the center of the fire, breaking the blaze into two easily controlled parts. The farmer was so impressed and so grateful that his farm had been spared that he presented the volunteers with a check for $1,000 on the spot. A local news reporter asked the volunteer fire captain what the department planned to do with the funds. That ought to be obvious, he responded, wiping ashes off his coat. The first thing were gonna do is get the brakes fixed on our fire truck!Take it from the bottomA local couple often shares their music with seniors at retirement or nursing homes. He plays the cello and she plays the harp. Often times the wife will introduce a song or tell something about the music she is about to play. One time she told the audience that she is going to play a piece entitled, Claire de Lune by Claude Debusy. One hard of hearing resident asked another sitting next to her, What did she say? The resident replied, She is going to play Fruit of the Loom.BustedA very fat woman got on a crowded bus. She stood in the aisle, looked around, and loudly complained, Isnt anybody going to give me a seat? A thin man stood up and said, Ill be glad to make a contribution.Wild volunteerA teenager brought home her new boyfriend to meet her parents, and they were appalled by his appearance: leather jacket, motorcycle boots, tattoos and a pierced nose. Later, the parents pulled their daughter aside and said, He doesnt seem very nice. Mom, replied the daughter, if he wasnt so nice, why would he be doing 5000 hours of community service? TypicalA Red Cross Volunteer and a lawyer died and went up to the heavenly gates. Saint Peter told the volunteer to wait a little while, and let the lawyer in first. As the gates closed on the volunteer, he saw the lawyer greeted with fanfare! Music erupted, cheers were heard, and a choir of angels descended with songs of joyous hallelujah. As the last angel floated away, Saint Peter finally granted entrance to the volunteer. There was no music, no choir. Confused, the volunteer looked to Saint Peter for an explanation. Oh, we get volunteers in here all the time. This was our first lawyer.You know the typeVolunteering as a blood donor at a Texas hospital, a young woman was asked by the nurse, Do you know your type? Oh, yes, came the reply. Im the sultry type.Stocking volunteerWhile Johns wife was getting ready for church he heard, I sure need some new stockings. When she went into the bakery on the way home that afternoon, he spied a clothing store next door. So, he thought he would surprise her and went in to buy her some new stockings. Can I help you, the sales lady asked. Yes, he replied. I would like to get some stockings for me wife please. Sheer? she asked. No, she isnt here, John replied. Shes next door at the bakery.Help!A spindly little sparrow was lying on his back in the middle of the road. A rabbit came hoppingFriday, April 11, 2014~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, April 11, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Arare closed Veterans Club meeting was held on April 3. The members only meeting accomplished much in its planning for the coming months. The primary reason the meeting was not open was because we held the election of officers. Your officers for the coming year will be, Bill Mahar, president; Bill Spangenberg, vice president; Richard Hurley, treasurer; Marty Duesel, sergeant at arms and John Everlove, secretary. In addition, the Veterans Club received an invitation to attend the grand opening of Fisher House in Gainesville.

Your SPCA performs miracles with cats; dogs; horses and occasionally even a few other species. They provide a no kill shelter; food for indigent doggies and kittens; medical care for the injured and malnourished and much much more. Bev Carver is president of the Marion SPCA.

If you are just learning or if you have been playing since you were a kid; Bocce nights will be a great evening of fun for you. Those who dont play, sit around to cheer on their favorite teams or players and do a little teasing along the way. Bring some thing to drink and munch on and join the friendly people who play or just socialize. STORYCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 If it should be raining or cold; come out anyway as the crowd moves indoors to sit around the fire place to chat and laugh. Its always a good time.From your reporterA huge Bunco party is coming to town. If youve ever played Bunco you know its an exciting and fun dice game. If you have never played, this would be a great time to learn. On Friday, May 2 join the Marion County community at the Klein Conference Center at the College of Central Florida for a terrific event hosted by your Marion County SPCA. There will be eight people per table so bring a team with you; bring friends or just come out and join the fun. Compete for prizes and win raffles; enjoy the excitement of playing Bunco and at the same time support a very worthy cause. Whether you come alone or bring a gang, you will want to be at this event and show your support. The Marion County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is not affiliated with the American SPCA. These angels of Marion do not get paid or receive funding from any national organization. They are strictly volunteers taking care of the many needs of our local four legged friends and companions. You can be a part of this great event for just $30 per person. The games begin at 6:30 p.m. so come out and enjoy some hors doeuvres and beverages; some great company and a night of excellent Bunco. In these tough economic times our furry pals need people like the SPCA and you to make sure they have food; water; veterinary care and the occasional snuggle. Your SPCA performs miracles with cats; dogs; horses and occasionally even a few other species. They provide a no kill shelter; food for indigent doggies and kittens; medical care for the injured and malnourished and much much more. Bev Carver is president of the Marion SPCA. She is a special person who has been a champion of animals in need and a supporter of Patriot Dog Project. We wish her all the success in the world with this outing. For more information and details contact 352-362-8513. Even if you cant go to the event, think about making a tax deductible donation to the SPCA of Marion County. I know you will all help out so may I personally say thank you in advance?

National Volunteer Week, April 6-12, is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities. This year marks the 40th anniversary of National Volunteer Week, demonstrating the enduring importance of recognizing our countrys volunteers for their vital contributions.Fire saleA fire started on a farm hayfield near one of our rural communities. The volunteer fire department arrived in a dilapidated old fire truck that rumbled straight into the middle of the flames. The firemen jumped off the truck and frantically started spraying water in all directions. Soon they had snuffed out the center of the fire, breaking the blaze into two easily controlled parts. The farmer was so impressed and so grateful that his farm had been spared that he presented the volunteers with a check for $1,000 on the spot. A local news reporter asked the volunteer fire captain what the department planned to do with the funds. That ought to be obvious, he responded, wiping ashes off his coat. The first thing were gonna do is get the brakes fixed on our fire truck!Take it from the bottomA local couple often shares their music with seniors at retirement or nursing homes. He plays the cello and she plays the harp. Often times the wife will introduce a song or tell something about the music she is about to play. One time she told the audience that she is going to play a piece entitled, Claire de Lune by Claude Debusy. One hard of hearing resident asked another sitting next to her, What did she say? The resident replied, She is going to play Fruit of the Loom.BustedA very fat woman got on a crowded bus. She stood in the aisle, looked around, and loudly complained, Isnt anybody going to give me a seat? A thin man stood up and said, Ill be glad to make a contribution.Wild volunteerA teenager brought home her new boyfriend to meet her parents, and they were appalled by his appearance: leather jacket, motorcycle boots, tattoos and a pierced nose. Later, the parents pulled their daughter aside and said, He doesnt seem very nice. Mom, replied the daughter, if he wasnt so nice, why would he be doing 5000 hours of community service? TypicalA Red Cross Volunteer and a lawyer died and went up to the heavenly gates. Saint Peter told the volunteer to wait a little while, and let the lawyer in first. As the gates closed on the volunteer, he saw the lawyer greeted with fanfare! Music erupted, cheers were heard, and a choir of angels descended with songs of joyous hallelujah. As the last angel floated away, Saint Peter finally granted entrance to the volunteer. There was no music, no choir. Confused, the volunteer looked to Saint Peter for an explanation. Oh, we get volunteers in here all the time. This was our first lawyer.You know the typeVolunteering as a blood donor at a Texas hospital, a young woman was asked by the nurse, Do you know your type? Oh, yes, came the reply. Im the sultry type.Stocking volunteerWhile Johns wife was getting ready for church he heard, I sure need some new stockings. When she went into the bakery on the way home that afternoon, he spied a clothing store next door. So, he thought he would surprise her and went in to buy her some new stockings. Can I help you, the sales lady asked. Yes, he replied. I would like to get some stockings for me wife please. Sheer? she asked. No, she isnt here, John replied. Shes next door at the bakery.Help!A spindly little sparrow was lying on his back in the middle of the road. A rabbit came hoppingFriday, April 11, 2014~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, April 11, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Arare closed Veterans Club meeting was held on April 3. The members only meeting accomplished much in its planning for the coming months. The primary reason the meeting was not open was because we held the election of officers. Your officers for the coming year will be, Bill Mahar, president; Bill Spangenberg, vice president; Richard Hurley, treasurer; Marty Duesel, sergeant at arms and John Everlove, secretary. In addition, the Veterans Club received an invitation to attend the grand opening of Fisher House in Gainesville. Fisher House provides free housing for families of veterans who are undergoing treatment at the VA Medical Center. Because our organization has been such strong supporters of this project; we were given an invitation. Anyone who is interested in attending this event on May 10 should contact Bill Mahar at 352-873-1341 or John Everlove at 352509-4428 to sign up. If we have enough people, a bus will be chartered. Other events coming up include a boat trip and also a fishing excursion. Again, contact the officers mentioned above if you are interested in going on these trips. Veterans Appreciation Day will be held on June 21 featuring Kenny Jackson and a meal for all veterans and their spouses. Tickets will be available in May for this event. Memorial Day observance will take place on May 30 at the clubhouse. Vice President Bill Spangenberg will be the officer in charge. If you would like to volunteer to assist him or if you have anything to do with the ceremony; please contact him as soon as possible. On June 7, the club will sponsor its first Golf open at Ocala Palms. Volunteers are needed to help with sponsorships; golfers and logistics at the course. Please contact Bill Mahar or Rich Hurley to learn how you can help. All this and more was accomplished in just over 35 minutes showing that our organization is cohesive and working together for the betterment of all veterans. We thank President Mahar and last years officers for their leadership. The next Veterans Club meeting will be at 2 p.m. on May 1. It will be an open meeting so all are welcome to attend. Trivia NightAt 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 16, once again we will get together at the clubhouse to challenge our minds and our sense of humor when Trivia Night returns for its monthly session. Donna James will be our quiz master and she has worked hard and long on the questions including such subjects as entertainment; sports; spring and Easter; something Florida and more. Trivia begins at 7 p.m. with everyone paying their $1 entry fee. Teams of three or four people are chosen or if you have your own team, thats fine too. You can come out as an individual or a group. Once thats done; Donna will flash the questions up on the big screen Veterans select officers Cherrywood John Everlove Trivia winners Janice and Dale Lunsford and Pam and Frank Pytlak.

For information, contact the church office at 352-489-5881, visit www.PeaceLutheranOnline.com or visit Peace on Facebook at www.TinyURL.com/Peac e41-40. Bible Baptist ChurchBible Baptist Church has expanded its ministry and now has two campuses to worship Jesus in, according to David Lambert, Pastor.

Our website is: Biblebaptistocala.comTemple Bnai DaromTemple Bnai Darom will be holding a Passover Seder at the Temple, 49 Banyan Course, Ocala on Monday night, April 14 at 6. A traditional Seder service will be conducted by our spiritual leader, Rabbi Harold Jaye followed by a full seder dinner. Choice of main course will be brisket or chicken. Cost per person is $28.50. For reservations or information call Elaine at 352-789-5617 or Anne at 352-245-1212. Chabad Jewish CenterFew Jewish holidays evoke the same warm sentiments as Passover. Memories of family and friends gathered as the four cups of wine are poured, the four questions asked and the Matzah served, all contribute to Passovers popularity in the Jewish community. Bringing the warmth and tradition of this festival to the Ocala and The Villages Community, The Chabad Jewish Center is inviting all residents to participate in community Seder to be held on Monday, April 14, 7:30 p.m. The Seders take participants through the wondrous liberation of our ancestors from Egyptian bondage, while sharing the relevance and beauty of the age old festival in our modern lives. Included in the Seder will be a delectable catered dinner paired with a variety of fine kosher wine and handmade round Shmurah Matzah from Israel. Passover is not simply a celebration of the historic liberation of an ancient people, said Rabbi Yossi Hecht, Director, of The Chabad Jewish Center. Passover is about our own personal liberation physically, emotionally and spiritually. Passover inspires us to break free from the shackles restraining us from reaching new heights in our lives, relationships and connection with G-d. Additionally Holiday Services will be held throughout the entire Passover Holiday at The ChabadJewish Center, 3509 SW 34th Ave. Circle. All are welcome to join the community seder, regardless of Jewish affiliation or background. Reservations can be made online at www.jewishmarion.org Friday, April 11, 2014~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, April 11, 2014 www.smcitizen.com RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 I think summer has finally arrived. Thank goodness, as one never knew what to wear on any given day. Now its summer clothes every day.Lasagna Night changedDue to unforeseen circumstances, Lasagna Night at Spruce Creek North has been changed from April 12 to April 26. Tickets were sold April 2 and 3 and will be sold again on April 16. The night should be called all homemade night because the social committee will be hard at work making homemade lasagna. There will be lasagna, salad, Italian bread dessert, coffee or tea, all for $12. Angie from Palm Cay will be the entertainer and 50/50 will be played. The next and last event until after the summer will be the Memorial Day picnic. There will be hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, desserts and of course coffee or tea. This will be on Memorial Day, May 26. Cost will be determined by the ever-rising food prices. Will be announced later.An old Ann Landers articleI came across an old column of mine in reference to an old Ann Landers article and feel it is worth repeating. An estate planner wrote this to Ann. Over the years I have seen clients change their wills or trusts by passing up children and grandchildren and leaving their money to friends, charities or people who were kind to them. Let this be a wake-up call to all sons, daughters and grandchildren. The message I want to convey is this: Your inheritance is not automatic. Its a gift. There are many reasons for changing a will or trust, but the two most common are disrespect and isolation. In some families the only time the old folks see the grandchildren is when their parents need a favor (usually its money). So the message the old folks wish to convey is as follows: You didnt have time for me when I was lonely and would have enjoyed your company so why should I leave you the money I worked and saved for all my life? Wake up out there. An inheritance isnt something that is owed you. When there is no love, there should be no gift. Lasagna Night rescheduled for April 26 Spruce Creek North Jan Liberio PLEASESEECREEK, PAGE22 April is National Volunteer Month. The benefits extend beyond helping others. Persons who volunteer usually find it helps to improve their mental and physical health. There is research that shows that it can extend the volunteers life. There are many opportunities in our gated community. Teachers can and many do give their time to Master the Possibilities. Visiting homebound seniors is another. Our clubs are always in need of new faces for the many tasks needed. April is also Stress Awareness Month. Rest, eat well, exercise, and volunteer in some capacity to ease any stress you may be having.OTOW Lions ClubApril 25 is our second annual Recycled Trashy Fashion Show.

He was willing to give up the glory of Heaven and then to die for our sins on a cruel cross, so that we might be forgiven by God and allowed to spend eternity with Him in Heaven when we leave this earth. What could be more important to any human being than spending eternity with God and Jesus Christ in Heaven and all the other Christians who have committed their lives to living for Christ here on earth. You are lovingly invited to come and share this special day of celebration with us on Easter Sunday. Southwest Christian Church is a traditional worshiping church. Our worship service includes the beloved old-time Gospel hymns together with some of todays contemporary choruses. We preach and teach strictly from Gods Word.

We seek to teach those desiring to follow Him, who God is and who He expects us to be. If you are seeking a church where you are loved by God and His people in a truly Christian way, we invite you to come and visit with us to see if we are the church you are seeking.

Stop by and see what they have.Septic TanksWhen is the last time you had your septic tank checked and cleaned? We had ours done recently, not because we were having problems but because we didnt want any problems in the future. So have yours checked. If you dont have a septic tank then dont have it checked.Changing timesIts sad to say but due to the changing times I think it would be advisable to have a neighborhood watch. Neighbors watching out for neighbors. We have to keep a watch out for unusual things happening. If you see someone at your neighbors house that is not normal, call your neighbor or call SCN security. See you in 2 weeks. Regards from JanJan Liberio resides in Spruce Creek North with her husband Jim. She can be reached via e-mail at JnLiber@aol.com. Or Joy Lutheran ChurchApril 13, Palm Sunday, begins the churchs Holy Week. Pastor Edward Holloway, Jr. will preach on the Exalted/Reviled at the 8:15 a.m. and 11 a.m. services. On April 17, Maundy Thursday, at 6:45 p.m. this worship service begins the three days of Christs Passion. Pastor Eds message will be Caring for the Soul. Holy Communion will be offered in memory of the Last Supper. The altar will be stripped in honor of Christs death and at the end of service; the sanctuary will be left in the dark. On Good Friday April 18 at 6:45 pm church members will give a scripture-based live performance of the Stations of the Cross. The performers will take us through the final hours of Jesus life, along with prayer and meditation, embracing the commitment of Gods love toward humanity. Christs journey to the cross is a prologue to the resurrection which would have no meaning without Good Friday. On Saturday, April 19 at 10 a.m. there will be an Easter Egg Hunt in Hope Field, at the church, for the local children. The joy of Easter Sunday, April 20, begins with a 6:30 a.m. service outside in the Memorial Gardens (weather permitting) and Pastor Eds message will be Opening the Tomb. The following services this Easter day will be held in the sanctuary. At 8:30 a.m. Pastor Eds message will be Easter Greetings and at 10:30 a.m. his message will be The Solution to Death. The church will be decorated with spring flowers and the Bell and Vocal Choirs will perform at the last two services. These Holy Week services are open to the public and all are welcome. Church of the Advent You are invited to join us on this most holy journey beginning Palm Sunday and ending with the celebration of Easter. Palm Sunday (April 13) includes two services, one at 8 a.m. followed by Mass with music at 10 a.m. This service includes a special reading of the Passion of our Lord from the text of Mathew. Our Maundy Thursday (April 17) service will be held at 7 p.m. where we celebrate the Eucharist and offer the washing of feet. Good Friday is a somber service of shadows with minimal lighting inside the sanctuary. At this service (April 18 at 7 p.m.) our choir will present a cantata Who is This King? with music and narration that takes us from Peters confession through the Passion of our Lord. Holy Saturday Service (April 19) at 7 p.m. begins outside the church where the Paschal Candle will be lit and when again in the sanctuary, we renew our Baptismal vows. After the Gospel is read, the choir will offer songs of celebration and Easter begins.

According to Joe Raffony, who has run the breakfast for a number of years, the Mothers Day breakfast, plus two or three others during the year, started in 2001 by Dennis McGuire, who is no longer with us. Joe started running the breakfast in 2007, carrying on the same format as Dennis. Last year Paula and Al Boucher volunteered to do the bulk of the preparation, such as selling tickets, buying food etc., with support from Joe to get the help needed to serve the breakfast and coordinate who does what. They graciously volunteered to continue to do so this year. There are normally 25 to 30 people working that morning; and for many years, the breakfast has sold upward of 200 tickets. In fact, it was not uncommon in the early years to sell out on the first day of ticket sales. If youd like a terrific breakfast brought to you by wonderful volunteers, get a ticket to this popular event. And did I mention that theres something special for all the Moms who attend?DancercizeThe first Dancercize class met Thursday, April 3, and Marilyn and Dawn Pineau led the group through some warm up exercises and preliminary dance steps. I was surprised at how quickly they caught on, said Marilyn. This class is beneficial not only for exercising, but is great to improve your balance and stability. And most important, we all enjoyed ourselves. Both Marilyn and Dawn have extensive dance backgrounds, Marilyn in ballroom dance and Dawn in ballet. They choreographed the Marion Landing Rock-O-Lettes for many years, practicing weekly and entertaining the community with many holiday-themed routines. They now bring their dance expertise to Dancercize, sharing an activity they both love. If you would like to give Dancercize a try, theres still room in the class for more students, so sign up on the sheet posted on the Activity Board. The class meets each Thursday morning at 9 a.m., its free and its loads of fun. Charity Crafters keep on donatingThe Charity Crafters, that group of ladies who love to sew, knit and crochet, meet each week at 1 in the craft room and make good use their talents by helping the Ocala community.

Just think of it, five whole days to luxuriate in your bed and not have to get up and do a thing. Talk about a vacation! What with the sneezing and coughing, and your nose running like the mighty Mississippi, and your head thumping like an African bongo drum, what more could a person ask for? If somebody calls for you during that time, all your wife has to say is, Hes in bed with the flu. Everybody understands that. Of course, if she said you are just in bed, people would not accept that and think a little poorly of you. But if you have diarrhea along with the flu, that is spectacular. Not only do you get to lie in bed, but also you get a little exercise, jumping up and running to the bathroom every 3 1/2 seconds. The side benefit of this is you lose some weight during that week. One more thing slightly more exciting than filing your income taxes, is poking yourselves in the eye. I must confess this a favorite of mine because every time I do it, I learn new dance steps. Alas, when the swelling dies down I cannot remember those dance steps. Therefore, paying my income tax each year is included in some of my favorite activities. Even Jesus got into the discussion of paying taxes. When queried on this subject he replied, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesars, and to God the things that are Gods (Mark 12:17). When I think of all the money wasted in our country, especially by our government, I grieve. Someone once said, Money in the hands of a fool always goes for foolish things. How a person spends his or her money reveals a lot about that person.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Things were being accomplished and I was rather enjoying myself. Dutifully, I was checking off item after item on my to-do-list. I love it when a plan comes together. However, at the top of my exuberance, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage stopped me dead in my tracks with a query. She is quite famous, or is it infamous, for pulling these kinds of things on Yours Truly. She has a question for just about every event. Most of her questions are beyond answering, at least for me. For instance, when we are traveling, she will wait for the right moment and then put to me this query. Do you know where youre going? A variety of ways to answer that question immediately suggests itself, not all of which would endear me to her. However, to be honest, and who doesnt want to be honest these days, the answer to that question is usually a mumbled No. Just as we get into the car and get ready to go, she asks another question. Do you have everything you need? Invariably, I do not, and have to go back into the house and pick up what I left behind. I could do my own Left Behind series. Then there is the all time favorite question. Does this dress make me look fat? Just between you and me, one of these times, I am going to answer, No, Honey, its not the dress making you look fat. I am saving that one for a deathbed confession. However, this past week when I was flying high, she dropped me dead in my tracks with another question. Have you filed our income tax yet? It was at that moment my whole world came crashing down. I had not even given it a first thought, let alone a second thought. Why is it, although income tax filing day comes every year on the same day I always forget? I am getting either senile or moving towards going into politics. I am hoping for the former. Of all the things I love doing in this world, and there are plenty, paying my income tax each year does not rate number one. Do not get me wrong, I really enjoy shelling out my hard-earned money and sending it to politicians to invest in one of their pork projects. Every time I have a little extra cash in my pocket, I always wonder what that happy crowd in Washington, D.C., could do with it. Usually I am tempted to send it to them along with a little note that says, Spend it with my compliments. To be quite honest, there are few things I enjoy more than filing my income tax each year. One would be calling the telephone company to straighten out my telephone bill. This is good for an Why I am happy to pay my taxes and other every April 15 entire day of delightful conversation with idiots. Every time I think my life cannot get any lower and drabber than it is, I simply pick up the telephone and call customer service at my friendly telephone company. Within three minutes, (after I had been put on hold for 27 minutes) I recognize exactly how wonderful my life truly is. Probably the most magnificent thing about calling customer service is that you know somebodys going to get it all screwed up and you will have the pleasure of doing it all over again next week. A wonderful ongoing relationship that is priceless. Another activity I enjoyed doing more than filing my income tax is spending five whole days in bed with the flu. Nothing could be more delightfully entertaining. Out to Pastor Rev.

It really is special that not only are there plays, concerts, exercise classes, there are also groups around the community playing games such as Mah Jongg (love it), hand and foot, bridge and more. I even played Dominoes with the number tiles and that was fun. Of course dont forget the various state clubs, dance clubs, computer classes, ceramics etc .When you read news from Bocce you will see they are encouraging all residents to come join them. It sounds like they have a good time. Last but not least it is pool time so get out your suit and visit one of the many pools. In your spare time stop at the library for a book to read.

With folks continually texting and checking their apps, face-to-face conversation is fast becoming a lost art. National Healthcare Decisions Day on April 16 is a good reminder to turn off your phone and have the most important conversation of your lifeyour wishes for endof-life care. The hardest part of the conversation is getting up the courage to start it; then see how fast someone looks away when you bring up this subject. To help get the conversation going, a clever new approach to this difficult subject is an old-fashioned card game. Remember playing Go Fish as children? Everyone has played that game, so there isnt anyone who cant relate to it. Young and old can sit around the table and play with the soulsearching version called Go Wish. The goal is not to get rid of all your cards, but rather to put your cards on the table, letting your family and friends know what is important to you and how they can support you. Go Wish is no gimmick. It is the result of much study and funded by a grant to educate elders and their families about advanced planning. It was developed and field-tested to stimulate discussion in a positive way on the values and wishes about end-of-life care. It is an effective tool for those with limited cognition but not so simplistic for those with higher thinking skills. In essence, it works for everyone. Deal Me In Each of the 36 cards has a short statement that people often cite as being important to them in the last weeks or months of life. In solitaire mode, the player sorts and prioritizes the statements. It is a visual way to communicate your wishes. You can also play in pairs or groups. The point is not to create an I want list, but to encourage discussion about what is important and why. Rather than the often blank expression one would receive to the question: What is the most important issue to you? the Go Wish cards provide vocabulary and ideas that give voice to concerns and an opportunity to personalize them. The game is never dull. Many people remark after playing the game several times, the way they sort the cards changes, helping them redefine their thinking and how their values might apply in different situations. A case reported in the Journal of Palliative Medicine demonstrates the impact care planning has on exposing quality of life issues and identifying actions amenable to intervention, such as with someone who is in a non-verbal state. A patients wife wrote: Mikes passing was so peaceful and exactly the way he wanted. I want to thank you because if you hadnt loaned me the Go Wish cards, I would not have known he wanted to be at home with everyone around him; that he knew we cared about him and he lived a worthwhile life. He was also aware that we were touching him. These are all things he picked from the cards. What a lucky man to have the end just the way he wished for. How Do I Get Started? Whether you play cards, fill out Living Wills together or have a frank talk around the kitchen table, just do itfor yourself and your family. It is the best gift you can ever give them. Go Wish cards are available at www.codaalliance.org ($24 for two packs) Play Go Wish for free online at www.gowish.org Living Wills are downloadable at www.hospiceofmarion.com/advance-directives.html (FREE) Five Wishes booklets are also free at Hospice of Marion County, 3231 SW 34th Ave., Ocala, FL 34474 On April 16, representatives will be available at Munroe Regional Medical Center, Ocala Regional Medical Center and West Marion Hospital to explain and distribute all three options. Information will also be on display at the following Marion County Public Library Branches: Main Headquarters, Belleview, Dunnellon, Forest, Freedom and Marion Oaks. Call 352-854-5230 for more information. Sitting back and listening at various meetings, especially those of the County Commission, one gets the feeling that there are a lot of people out there who feel combining some services would be more efficient, both in operation and financing. Recently there has been some work putting together dispatching services of the city and the county to enhance the 911 system so calls would not have to be rerouted. At the last commission meeting, the sheriff spoke of getting all county emergency personnel operating on the same 800 mhz radio frequencies so the agencies could easily hear what is going on in other areas, and in the cities. There is evidently already some cooperation. I live in the city, but when somebody on my block gets ill, its usually County Fire Rescue that responds. To be honest, no one cares, as long as help gets here quickly. All these working-together efforts are noble goals, and I heartily endorse such actions. But it brings back memories of something that happened just three months after I moved to Florida in 1968. On Oct. 1 of that year, wild celebrations, parades, etc. were held in Jacksonville as that city and Duval County consolidated into one government. It was the culmination of a three-year effort spearheaded by people who were tired of corruption. Eleven officials in the city and county were accused of misconduct during the early part of the 1960s. Voters in four cities refused to approve the plan, so Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach, Atlantic Beach, all on the ocean, and Baldwin, in the western part of the county, remained independent. However in a quirk made necessary because the consolidated government was actually the county commission, and the mayor was over the whole county, residents of those four cities vote in Jacksonville elections and are eligible for some services. The constitutionally mandated Duval Sheriffs Office became the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office, JSO, having been consolidated with the Jacksonville Police Department. The consolidation had some bragging rights. Jacksonville became, at that time, the largest city in Florida population-wise. It also became the largest city in land area in the world, but has since been surpassed by Juneau, Alaska, which must have annexed a whole lot of ice to get that title. If Ocala and Marion County were consolidated, and if some of the smaller cities joined in, we would become a city bigger than Rhode Island (we also brag were bigger as a county now than that state). We could, as one city, offer all sorts of recreation, including hunting and fishing, Silver Springs and Rainbow Springs parks, along with a host of smaller ones, and city facilities stretching from what is now northern Ocala all the way to the south county line along U.S. Highway 441. Many of us may not live long enough to see this happen, but it would be nice to see some people start talking about the possibility in the future. Maybe someday we could get rid of city and School Board suing each other over our money, and maybe we could have just one, efficient government with no duplication of services and, more importantly, no duplication of fees and taxes. Too much to ask? Probably. But lets think about it, anyway. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Those against the unattended tethering ban didnt get their way one was put into effect. Those who were in favor of a tethering ban werent pleased with a loophole that allows people to perform tasks for up to 30 minutes and leave their dogs tethered without anyone present. And people who didnt care one way or the other were turned off by the behavior of the pro-dog people. A compromise probably was the only way that something was going to get passed. As it was, the 3-2 vote was hardly a mandate. However, the split vote came after one of the most rowdy meetings that have taken place in the County Commission auditorium. The people who backed the ban of unattended tethering had a noble cause the protection of animals. However, that was no cause for the audience to behave the way it did. The backers applauded mightily as each speaker who backed the ban got up and gave their views, and booed when anyone, including the chairman, dared oppose their view. They acted as if only their view could be heard, and in a complete lack of understanding of the democratic process tried to shout down those who disagreed with them. Chairman Carl Zalak tried to have the crowd tone it down, but the spectators ignored him, and proper decorum, in their behavior. When a couple of commissioners expressed reservations about the ban and whether it would be enforceable, or when Zalak mentioned about the possibility of infringing on individual freedoms, they shouted out threats such as were not going away, and also pointedly interrupted out loud that they would have their say come election day. We feel that there already was a cruelty law on the books, and that this law should be enforced before any new ones are passed. We also consider this new law unenforceable, because unless animals were tethered in front yards, it would be possible for enforcement people to see them from the road. They would have to rely on neighbors turning in their neighbors. That could lead to all sorts of bad blood. The 30-minute loophole would also be hard to enforce. If a deputy or animal control officer confronts a homeowner, he could just say that he was performing a task for a few minutes. The parts we do like are the ones that say that any dog to be temporarily tethered must be spayed or neutered, and that they cannot be tethered on a vacant lot. One commissioner, a few meetings ago, said, No one is going to tell me what I can do with my dog in my backyard. Unfortunately, she led the compromise move last week. Hopefully, people who attended or watched last weeks meeting wont get any ideas for acting that way in the future.

Friday, April 11, 2014~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, April 11, 2014 www.smcitizen.com SKYWAY By Bill DeYoung In painstaking detail Bill DeYoung recreates that terrible morning of May 9, 1980 when the enormous ship Summit Venture rammed the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, collapsing it and sending 35 people to their deaths in the dark water below. The books chilling cover shows Dick Hornsbuckles yellow Buick just 14 inches from oblivion. Its four passengers, unharmed, got out of the car and ran to warn oncoming vehicles. So what happened to cause this gut-wrenching tragedy and who was at fault? That day harbor pilot Captain John Lerro was guiding the 606-foot phosphate ship Summit Venture toward the Port of Tampa when a sudden, vicious storm cell with blinding rain and near-hurricane force winds came out of nowhere. Without radar or visibility Lerro relied on buoys and on deck lookouts. Sadly, he was well wide of the 800-foot center span. When he struck the bridge four cars and a Greyhound bus plummeted from the missing road span. Miraculously, one driver survived: Wesley MacIntire woke up suddenly as if jolted from a nightmare. Then he noticed the green water pouring in through the space where his windshield had been. He was at the bottom of the shipping channel, the trucks rear end planted in the silt. His little trucks fall had been broken by the port bow of the Summit Venture. He suffered no lifethreatening injuries. Although Lerro was assigned the blame, there were plenty of early warning signs about cost-cutting in the construction of the bridge from foundation pilings driven into sand instead of bedrock and concrete used instead of stronger steel. There were also cracks detected before the bridge was officially opened. Years after the disaster there were still victims. Wes McIntire suffered greatly from survivor guilt before dying of cancer in 1989. Captain John Lerro was a broken man who was stigmatized by the press, divorced by his wife, his only child taunted by schoolmates, nearly broke, and then diagnosed with multiple sclerosis a year after the tragedy. He died in 2002. Skyway is a skillfully written, suspenseful breakdown of an awful series of cause and effect. A quick read at only 300 pages and highly recommended.

The idea of doing a mural had been in the works for a number of years, reports Bev Ringenberg, festival coordinator. The 16 x 16 mural painted by Travis Parks, a local Cedar Key Artist, was inspired by Ann Kamzelskis digitally enhanced photograph of Cedar Keys much photographed Honeymoon Cottage. The artwork, which is on the eastside of the Historic Lutterloh Building at 457 2nd Street, faces the Cedar Key Arts Centers Sculpture Garden providing a perfect backdrop for the larger-than-life Mosaic Fisherman that was completed several years ago. Following the dedication ceremony, attendees were invited upstairs for the Opening of the Arts Centers April Exhibit entitled Years of Arts Festivals in Cedar Key. The exhibit, which is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, invites visitors to Step Back in Time and learn a little Cedar Key Art History. So, head on over to Cedar Key this weekend, 60 miles southwest of Gainesville at the end of State Road 24, in the center of Floridas Nature Coast. In addition to checking out the mural and Arts Center exhibit, you will find much to do 120 fine artists and craftsman, art demonstrations Saturday and Sunday afternoon, kids activities (including fish rubbing, face painting and even a Crazy Hair booth), great food, fun music and more in this island community.

Editors Note: Part of this story was inadvertently omitted last week. It is being repeated in its entirety here.Ocala Health has named Kelli Potenza and Richard Wolf winners of the 2013 Frist Humanitarian Award. Potenza was recognized in the employee category; Wolf was named for the volunteer category. The Frist Humanitarian Award is awarded annually and is the highest honor an employee or volunteer can receive at HCA, the parent company of Ocala Health. The Frist Humanitarian Awards were created to recognize individuals at each HCA-affiliated facility who demonstrate extraordinary concern for the welfare and happiness of patients and their community. The Frist Humanitarian Awards are given annually in recognition of the humanitarian spirit and philanthropic work of the late Dr. Thomas F. Frist, Sr., a founder of HCA. National recipients will be honored in the spring at a reception at the companys Nashville, Tenn., headquarters. Kelli Potenza has worked for Ocala Health since 2001. Potenza currently serves as the Bariatric Clinical Coordinator at Ocala Regional Medical Center. She and her husband, Christopher, are proud parents of four adopted special needs children. Potenza mentors children in the foster care system as well as at-risk teens at the Heart of Florida Youth Ranch. Her passion for adoption can be shown by her regular teaching of the Mode Approach to Partnerships and Parenting Class for the Youth and Family Alternatives Adoption Agency. Potenza also volunteers as a summer camp nurse, assists with childrens bible study at church, and helps with a Christianbased sports program, Upward Sports. Potenza and her family volunteer together and deliver hot meals and blankets to the homeless. In addition to her humanitarian efforts, Potenza recently earned her Master of Science in Nursing degree. Richard Dick Wolf has been a volunteer with Ocala Health since April 1988, starting at Ocala Regional and then West Marion Community Hospital. In addition to his work at the hospitals, Wolf is active with Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), and plays Santa Claus at local elementary schools and nursing homes in Ocala. He also participates in a reading buddy program through Marion County Public Schools. Ocala Health is committed to delivering quality patient care. We are extremely proud to recognize Kelli and Dick for their efforts on behalf of our patients and our community, said Randy McVay, Ocala Health CEO. Their exemplary work and compassion set a high standard and were proud to have them in our organization. Our patients benefit from the kind of commitment to humanitarian concerns they demonstrate each day.

Colvin, Acting Commissioner of Social Security, announced the launch of a new disability process to expedite disability claims filed by veterans with a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability compensation rating of 100% Permanent & Total (P&T). Under the new process, Social Security will treat these veterans applications as high priority and issue expedited decisions, similar to the way the agency currently handles disability claims from Wounded Warriors. We have reached another milestone for those who have sacrificed so much for our country and this process ensures they will get the benefits they need quickly, said Acting Commissioner Colvin. While we can never fully repay them for their sacrifices, we can be sure we provide them with the quality of service that they deserve. This initiative is truly a lifeline for those who need it most. No one wants to put Americas veterans through a bureaucratic runaround, said Maryland Congressman John Sarbanes, a leading proponent for increasing assistance to veterans. As the baby boomer generation ages and more veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan need care, this common sense change will help reduce backlogs and cut through unnecessary red tape so that our most disabled veterans receive the benefits theyve earned. In order to receive the expedited service, veterans must tell Social Security they have a VA disability compensation rating of 100 percent P&T and show proof of their disability rating with their VA Notification Letter. The VA rating only expedites Social Security disability claims processing and does not guarantee an approval for Social Security disability benefits. These veterans must still meet the strict eligibility requirements for a disability allowance. For information about this service, please visit www.socialsecurity.gov/pgm/disabilitypt.htm. For more about Social Securitys handling of Wounded Warriors disability claims, please visit www.socialsecurity.gov/woundedwarriors.

Above is one of the vehicles on display, while at the right is DJ Garry White who was in charge of the show, which drew about 100 vehicles. More photos on Page 6. (Photos by Ron Ratner) Zero tolerance policies to be discussed at Forum Local and statewide efforts to ease the inflexibility of zero tolerance policies in our schools is the topic of the April 11 Friday Forum of Marion County which meets this Friday at 11:30 a.m. at Buffet City, State Road 200 and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Panelists include retired educator Nancy Noonan and former Marion County NAACP president Whitfield Jenkins, both members of the Awake Marion juvenile justice committee; and Capt. Alicia Walker and Sgt. Claude McQuaig, both of the Marion County Sheriffs Office Juvenile Justice Division. Invitations also have been extended to the Ocala Police Chief and to the Public Defender as well as to the Marion County School Board. While intended to reduce drugs and violence in our schools, zero tolerance policies have sometimes resulted in absurdly unfair consequences for trivial infractions, with minority children especially targeted according to Ray Seaman, online director of Progress Florida, who will moderate. The nonpartisan speaker/luncheon series, open to all, meets on the second Friday of each month to engage in civil community dialogue about important issues affecting Marion County. The $10 charge, payable directly to the restaurant, includes the buffet, tax, tip and a drink. For more information and to RSVP please email FridayForumofMarionCounty@gmail.com or telephone Delphine Herbert (352-873-9970) or Jan Lentz (352425-6219).
