Man, 86, loses $$ in fraud BY JIM CLARK EditorThe Marion County Sheriffs Office is investigating an apparent case of financial fraud, with an 86-year-old On Top of the World resident as the victim. According to the report, the victim wrote nine checks totaling more than $70,000 to people possibly associated with a cleaning service that does his house. His son in California became alarmed when his father called and said he and his wife needed money to pay their household bills and buy groceries. The son checked with the bank and found there was little money in an account that he says should have had more than $100,000. The son flew to Ocala to help his parents go to the Sheriffs Office. Deputies have three names of possible suspects, and the investigation is continuing. BY JIM CLARK EditorIgnoring the action by the Planning and Zoning Commission and the anti-Hispanic statements from neighbors, the Marion County Commission approved a project for a clinic, church and soccer field in the northwest area. The location is just north of State Road 40 on Northwest 110th Avenue, across the street from a development called Dorchester Estates. The clinic will take shape first, with the church and soccer field to come later. The Rev. Patrick Sheedy, pastor of Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, spoke in favor of the project, called Guadalupana Catholic Mission. He said there is already a small church at the intersection of 40 and 110th, but that a larger facility was needed. He said the clinic would probably operate only one day a week to start. There is a shopping center at the corner of the two roads, and some suggested that it would be better if the clinic were put into existing storefronts at this location. Many of those who would use this clinic would be non-drivers, Disputed clinic gets zoning OK PLEASESEECLINIC, PAGE3 BY CAROL JONES Special to the CitizenFreedom Public Librarys newest program, the Coffee Club, features Sharon Colvin and Terri Borkgren who will talk about their books on Monday, April 28, at 10:30 a.m. Stop in for a cup of coffee and meet them. These two sisters put their separate talents together and dreamed up the Whispering Key Mystery series. Terri took various writing courses in college and Sharon wrote and produced TV commercials for an NBC affiliate. Both loved reading mysteries and enjoyed writing, so what would you expect? Of course, a mysteries series. Ideas for the first book started percolating during a visit from their younger sister. While touring the area, brainstorming happened involving a tour bus visiting different Florida locations where murders inevitably occurred. The What Ifs created two sister characters who had to solve the crimes, and the Whispering Key Mysteries were born. Sharon and Terri and their families relocated to Florida from central Illinois for health reasons and warm weather, Librarys Coffee Club features mystery authors PHOTO BY RON RATNERLaw Enforcement Torch RunLaw enforcement personnel take off on Pine Avenue on the annual Torch Run.

Island Trail What are Hearing Aid Channels and Bands? Two of the most important characteristics of hearing aids are Channels and Bands which are also some of the most misunderstood by users. To start off with, the number of channels or bands has nothing to do with the number of programs or volume settings. Sounds are processed and amplified by a hearing aid based on frequencies (or the pitch of a sound) and volumes. A peek at your audiogram will tell you how much amplification you need for any given frequency. In a nutshell, bands and channels thus determine how granular a hearing aid can process and amplify the sounds it perceives. To quote a great explanation from Philips: A band is what is used to control volume in different frequencies. This allows us to adjust more volume in a specific area of your hearing loss without effecting other areas where you might need less volume The more bands the hearing aid offers the more room we have to fit the aid to your hearing loss. Channels break up the frequency range into individual channels. This allows the hearing aid to differentiate noise from speech. The more channels the hearing aid has the more fine tuned it can be. For instance the sound of keys falling on a table, or water running in the sink may be overwhelming. When your hearing aid offers many channels we can adjust each frequency that is too loud without sacrificing the things you want to hear, like your spouse or boss. Thus, just the way a high-resolution picture gives you a sharper image, more bands and channels provide you with a more granular sound quality. More channels will provide better resolution on the frequencies and more bands will mean better resolution on the volume thus allowing your hearing aid to match your audiogram more accurately. 000HV3L OCALA EAST 352-861-2275 3405 SW College Rd., Ste. 207 Colours Plaza, next to Red Lobster LARGO 727-531-7500 3690 East Bay Drive PALM HARBOR 727-781-8100 34838 US Hwy. 19 N., Ste. 34838 SIEMENS 101 SIEMENS 3MI SIEMENS 5MI SIEMENS 7MI 000HY7X

One of the speakers said that crowds already congregate on 110th, and wont get out of the way when drivers come along. Another said there was a man on a three-wheeler, whos drunk, who drives on the road. One man said his property is adjacent to a soccer field already in the neighborhood and finds debris and garbage all over the place. These people dont care, a lady from the area said. Im Catholic and I cant go to this church because its all in Spanish. I have to drive 12 miles to find an English church. She also referenced the existing field and other fields that are not too far away. We dont need a third soccer field, she said. Commissioner Stan McClain made the motion to approve the facility. Quite frankly, they are here to stay, and we need to reach out. CLINICCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 AUTHORSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Today is National Arbor Day, a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for trees. Some states celebrate their own holiday where the date varies, depending on climate and the suitable planting season. Here in Florida it is celebrated on the third Friday in January. Ive been rooting around and have gone out on a limb for some stories for today.Mooed musicA man had an ox that sang wordless songs so beautiful they brought tears to his eyes. The ox stood under his favorite tree, and sang. The man told his neighbors, and they came to hear the ox, but the critter wouldnt sing unless they paid the man. When they did, the ox serenaded them for an hour. People came from all over to hear the ox, and pretty soon the man so rich that he spent $50,000 building a special house for it. But even with all that money spent, the bovines house looked, well, quite ordinary. It was, after all, a hum bull home.Seat of learningI have a very distasteful job, complained the genealogist. I have been employed by Mrs. Richey to look up her family tree, and it will be my unpleasant duty to inform her that one of her ancestors was electrocuted at Sing Sing. Why worry about that? Just tell her the man occupied the chair of applied electricity at one of our public institutions.Fly awayR. Boles was an amazing man. Every day, he would climb a palm tree and fly it to work. Word got to the military about his abilities. They brought him to the base to see if his capabilities might be used. The man was worried because he could see no palm trees. But nobody would listen. They told him, All trees are the same. They brought him to the general, who wanted him to demonstrate what he could do. He said, But sir, this is an elm tree. But the general snarled back, Trees is trees, right? Now get in that tree, and fly. The man climbed the tree and tried to fly it. He tried and tried again, but the tree wooden even budge. The general got impatient. Whats the matter, son? Cant you fly trees? Sir, thats what Ive been trying to tell everyone. Im a palm pilot.Dividing Souls On the outskirts of town, there was a big old pecan tree by the cemetery fence. One day two boys filled up a bucket with pecans and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts. One for you, and one for me. One for you, one for me, said one boy. Several were dropped and rolled down toward the fence. Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He stopped and heard, One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me. Oh my, he shuddered, Its Satan and the Lord dividing the souls at the cemetery. When an old man with a cane hobbled along, the boy said, Come here quick. You wont believe what I just heard. Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up souls. The man said, Beat it, kid, cant you see its hard for me to walk? When the boy insisted, the man hobbled to the cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me The old man whispered, Boy, you, youve been telling the truth! Lets see the devil himself. Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, but were still unable to see anything. At last they heard, One for you, one for me and one last one for you. Thats all. Now lets go get those two nuts by the fence, and well be done. They say the old guy made it back to town 5 minutes before the boy.

Mouth-Watering! These were some of the words that were used to describe the fully-cooked baby back ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community during last years rib event. Happily, on Saturday, May 3 (Kentucky Derby Day) starting at 10 a.m., the tent at the Bank of the Ozarks on State Road 200 and SW 99th Street Road, will be back with the purpose of raising funds to allow the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest to support the College of Central Florida Nursing Scholarship Program and other local and international projects. A full rack of smokecooked baby back ribs costs only $18 if you prepay and pick up your order before 12:30 p.m. The cost is $20 for racks that are not prepaid. It is highly recommended to pre-order and to get there early (if you dont preorder) before the ribs are gone! Before smoke-cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. Rotary President Bonnie Clark says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret thats as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe. Youll need to eat the Rotarys baby back ribs to experience the great taste. If you want to place your ribs in the freezer and eat them later, reheating directions are included with your wrapped order. Pre-paid tickets are being sold by members of the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest. The Club meets on Tuesdays at 7:45 a.m. in suite 240 in the Doctors Office Building at the West Marion Community Hospital.

Friday, April 25, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, April 25, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenThose of us who rely on political drama, real or contrived, to justify our professional existence are drooling over the possibility that the next presidential balloting will be a dynasty election. Obviously we have a huge amount of foolishness and outright nastiness to get past between now and then, but what a story it would be if the party nominees are Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, Queen Hil vs. Prince Jeb. Imagine the plot lines: Tudors, Windsors and the Beverly Hillbillies.Instead of a Democratic Convention, that party could have a coronation, assuming Hillary decides she's ready to take the plunge and deal with the life's worth of baggage the Republicans are sure to pile on to her. But from two years out, it looks like the nomination is hers if she wants it. Jeb is a different story. Before he can even try to be Bush the Third, he'll have to fend off the nasties in his own party. He's already gotten a taste of how brutal they can be by daring to express an unhateful view of illegal immigrants: "Yes, they broke the law," he said, "but it's not a felony. It's an act of love. It's an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime, that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn't rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families." If that seemed innocuous to you, that's because you're not in one of those groups that wants to seal the border, or you're not one of the other GOP wannabes, like Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, who want to pander to them. Typical is the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC. Shortly after Bush committed his heresy, ALIPAC President William Gheen fired off a statement: "You could say that prostitutes do what they do out of an act of love for their children and families, or that bank robbers are engaging in an act of love because they're stealing the money not just for themselves but maybe for some of their family members. No one has ever said anything as ridiculous as this before." So Bush is in trouble with the hardliners who seem to control his party's agenda. Even though the Republican leadership insists it is trying to connect with the growing community of Hispanic Americans, who overwhelmingly vote against them, the controlling harsh sentiment within the GOP makes these outreach efforts appear to be nothing more than gloss. But maybe Bush is onto something. He's high on the list of establishment Republicans who are less interested in ideological purity and more in victory. They could rally around Jeb as someone who can appeal to the bulk of moderate Americans who are frightened of the hellfire and brimstone immoderates. Meanwhile, over in the Democratic realm, aka Hillaryland, the question is whether she'll abdicate, and if not, who will be her person in waiting, aka vice-presidential selection. Until then, those of us who are constantly desperate for a narrative are also waiting and dreaming about the 2020 election -the race between George P. Bush and Chelsea Clinton.Bob Franken is a columnist for King Features. For those of us who grew up riding the 42nd Street or Staten Island ferries in New York, its hard to imagine the so-called ferries that keep having accidents in the waters off Asia. The New York ferries carried cars and passengers, few by comparison with the foreign boats, across the river. It was a cheap, stress-free alternative to negotiating the Lincoln or Holland tunnels or the George Washington Bridge, you know, Gov. Christies bridge that his administration shut down to punish a local mayor. Alternatives to getting to Staten Island involved miles of extra driving. To me, those ferries in Asia are major-sized boats, somewhat related to small cruise ships. And, evidently, people are packed in to get from one destination to another. The latest disaster, a ferry off South Korea, shows the lack of safety planning and execution in case of emergency. The captain didnt go down with his ship; in fact, he was one of the first ones off the capsizing boat, and now is under arrest for his actions. In statements eerily similar to the 9-11 scenario at the World Trade Center in New York, the passengers, mostly students, were told to stay where they were for a few crucial minutes instead of trying to get off. You remember that there were announcements at the World Trade Center telling people to stay where they were as they waited for rescue personnel, and thats where they were when the towers collapsed. The agony of the relatives of those on board is apparent as television networks wait for word along with them. The text messages from those stuck on board the sinking ferry, such as the one who said he may never get to tell his parents in person again that he loved them, are gut-wrenching as you realize what these people are going through as they hope for the lives of their children. We see similar grief among the relatives of those apparently lost on the Malaysian plane that has yet to be found after weeks of searching. Yet somehow the ferry disaster is different, partly because we have pictures of the capsized boat, knowing that these young people are trapped inside. For someone like me, whose motto now is If I cant drive, I dont go, its sympathy from afar for those who find these ferries the easiest way to get from one point to another. Ive been emphasizing the ferries in Asia, but there is one thats not too far from home. Years ago, when I was working in Fort Myers Beach, it was suggested that it was easy to spend a day in Key West by taking a passengers-only ferry that ran between the two cities. When you look at a map, you realize how much travel time is saved by going this route. I politely declined, especially knowing I would have to walk or find other transportation to get around Key West. Actually, deep down, that had nothing to do with it. Spending hours on the water with no land in sight was not, for me, a pleasant prospect. But I realize for some, especially those in the area of Southeast Asia and off the coast of Africa, this is an easy way to get from one part of the continent to another. Far too often, though, we read about these disasters. I just hope that there is more concentration on safety issues so we minimize the loss of life on these ferries.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

When they read about places in the country that have battles over immigration status and behavior of foreigners, people tend to think, as they live in their quiet Marion County world, that its nice that it doesnt happen here. When they go to meetings such as the County Commission zoning hearings last week, they realize that such conflicts are not far away. These case was listed innocently enough on the agenda as item C2, 140409SU, Rasem and Nawai Okab, Special Use Permit in A-1, 12.37 acres. It turns out it was for a medical clinic, church building and soccer field for Guadalupana Catholic Mission. Scheduled to be put there shortly is the medical clinic, with the church and soccer field to come later. There is already a small church near the intersection of State Road 40 west and 110th Avenue. Neighbors of the proposed facility, some living in an area called Dorchester Estates, came out to oppose the facility, which is backed by the Rev. Patrick Sheedy, pastor of Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, who spoke at the meeting. The display of anti-Hispanic infiltration was loud and clear. People spoke of living near Little Mexico, and used phrases such as these people, referring to the Hispanics, and phrase generally construed as being racist in nature. One lady complained that she was a Catholic, and couldnt go to the church because it was all in Spanish, and she had to drive 12 miles to go to church. There were some more rational arguments, especially concerning traffic and pedestrian safety. After a little bit of discussion, the commissioners approved the special use to allow the clinic. The Planning and Zoning Commission had recommended denial, but the anonymous staff backed approval. The discussion showed, however, that the national debate about Hispanics being assimilated into America is not to be ignored locally. Coupled with a letter printed in our publications recently concerning speaking English, it shows that right here in Marion County there is, among many people, a general anti-Hispanic feeling that runs deeper than people care to admit. There were some legitimate concerns raised by people about the location of this clinic, but opposition to such a facility simply because the people there speak another language shows a bias that decent people shouldnt accept. It brings us back to a comment from the late Rodney King, victim of a beating years ago in Los Angeles, who asked, Cant we all just get along. Sadly, in Marion County it appears we cant.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY No welcome sign for Hispanic clinic This was not your grandfathers ferry Presidential races look like all in the families READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com LETTER TO THE EDITOR Language abuse and misuseMuch has been written by myself and others of late, regarding the use of what is misinterpreted as Spanish. I personally appreciate the complimentary phone calls and e-mails, as well as the article in the citizen on April 18, about the use of other than English in America. It was alluded to in the article about speaking Spanish here. Well, Spanish is only spoken in Spain, the Canary Islands, or by Spanish people coming to this country, period. There is what is called American Spanish used in the western hemisphere. There are seven separate dialects of American Spanish in Argentina alone. But in the South America, Cuba, and Mexican areas, there are six distinct dialects of American Spanish, that are subdivided by region or country.

In last weeks Citizen, Editor Jim Clark remarked about being the victim of bullys when he was in school. Every one who has ever been the victim of this form of terrorism knows how much pain and suffering it causes. Unfortunately for a few people, being a bully doesnt end with youth. Recently a number of my neighbors and friends have had trees trimmed or removed from their property. Subsequently, they have received letters in their mail boxes accusing them of being Tree murderers. Wow; who would have thought that cutting foliage was a capital crime? It seems that some bullies are out of their tree. Now dont get me wrong; I like trees as much as the next person. They are beautiful to look at; provide shade; give us oxygen to breath and make a great home for birds and squirrels. On the other side of the coin; they grow roots that rip up concrete floors; damage septic tanks; sprinkler systems and other underground facilities. Their branches and leaves clog eaves and down spouts; damage shingles and the limbs or a whole tree occasionally falls on to a house. If the latter is occurring to ones property; dont you think that the prudent thing to do would be remove the tree or trim it? Doesnt a home owner have the right to improve the condition of his or her property without some, how can I put this politely; without some over zealous tree lover accusing them of a crime? There are plenty of trees around; the woods are full of them. There is lots of oxygen to breathe and places for the birds to nest. Shade is available to those who seek it and in spite of houses being built; logs being burned in fire places; furniture being manufactured and hard wood floors being laid; there are still lots of beautiful trees. Intimidation may have worked for bullies when we were in school but after being around the block several times; adults are no longer willing to be influenced by nasty notes or remarks made behind their backs. If you want trees; plant as many as you like in your own yard and no one will say a thing. By the same token, if you keep your nose and opinions out of your neighbors property; life will be much more harmonious for all of us. A word of caution while I am on the subject; be careful when youre raking leaves. My buddy up north broke his leg trying to rake leaves; he fell out of the tree.

Dear Readers, I hope you have enjoyed the Easter weekend. It is fun to see a grandfather/grandmother giving the children a ride in the golf cart. You cant feel anything but pleased when you see their happy faces. I am considering having some space dedicated to news from a resident, not necessarily club news. This past week I have been contacted re: a special anniversary of a longtime resident. It is awesome to hear of anniversaries of 60 years (plus). Let me know if you think it would be of interest. I have a short piece and picture of one of longtime and active couples who celebrated their 60th. This would be a good time to applaud Richard Wolf, Linkside neighborhood for being honored by the Ocala Health with their 2013 First Humanitarian Award. Mr. Wolf has been a volunteer with them since 1988, presently at West Marion Hospital. Oak Run is fortunate to have those residents that go out into the community and volunteer. Thank you Richard. Now to the coming events. LauraOak Run LibraryRecently the Friends of the Oak Run Library held their regular meeting and Karen Hill of the Literacy Council was the speaker. Karen described the workings of the Literacy Council and how they are helping the 19% adult Illiteracy rate in Marion County. In addition to teaching people to read, the Council also trains people in speaking English and citizenship classes. A new challenge for the Council will be preparation for the GED test which will now be exclusively on the computer. This new GED test will require a minimum speed of keyboarding of 20 words per minute, and so the Council will be helping students to not only study for the test but learn how to efficiently operate the computer. Volunteers are always needed for these various types of programs and training is available. At the April meeting, the Board of Directors of the Library recognized the following librarians who have volunteered in the library for 15 years or more. They are: Alice Anderson; Patricia Arnold; Joan Beers; Viola Braman; Barbara Dalton; Gabriella Ethier; Eleanor Henry; Ann Johnson; Mary Koenig; Nancy Lillard; Joanne Misener; Barbara Murphy; Helen Neuendorf; Anne Pelkowski; Elvira Rusconi; Mary Seddon; Carolyn Sokolik; and Marjorie Thomas. Congratulations and a tremendous thank you for all your dedication and hours of work in the library. The Friends of the Oak Run Library hold meetings on the first Friday in February, April, June, October, and December at 1 pm in the Orchid Club Auditorium. You are encouraged to attend to hear the variety of speakers and programs that are scheduled. In addition, there are wonderful treats made by our librarians.Tuesday Classic Line DancingGood news: the very popular Tuesday evening classic line dance classes have been scheduled to be held at the Orchard Club. Effective Tuesday, April 29, they will be dancing on the lovely, highly polished wooden floors. so mark your calendar. Our Snowbird dancer friends have left and other dance classes may take the summer off, but they will continue their dancing schedule. Over the past months, a number of our residents, have requested an Introductory line dance class. Such a class may be introduced into the current Tuesday summer schedule -starting at about 6:15 p.m. Basically the class would be for those who want to learn to line dance or want a basic refresher course. The agenda, would be to learn/review the most popular basic Easy dances, like those done at socials (i.e. Electric Slide, Cupid Shuffle, Mama Marie and Boot Scootin Boggie. etc). However, in order to schedule this class, it is contingent on the amount of interest for that particular time-frame schedule. For those interested in this Introductory line dance class and can fit it in conveniently to their schedule (Tuesday evening 6:15 p.m.), call Nancy and let her know. Do try it for the summer months. We all know that dancing is a perfect exercise for both your body and mind while you enjoy the company of your friends and neighbors. Their motto is ~dance like no one is watching~.60th anniversary celebrationGeorge and Barbara Murphy are all smiles as they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary along with 52 friends and neighbors while on a recent Celebrity Reflection cruise to the Eastern Caribbean. Shirley and Paul Segal of the Preserve celebrated their 60th with family members at a dinner at Stumpknockers. They also want to thank the couple who anonymously paid for their check at Bob Evans. We hear more of these Random Acts of Kindness around the area.

PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE10 THE MAIDS VERSION By Daniel WoodrellOnce again, Daniel Woodrell sets his novelso short its almost a novellain his beloved Ozarks. Like its predecessor Winters Bone, it is bleak and penetrating. (The film adaptation of the latter launched actress Jennifer Lawrences career.) In this story the truth behind a tragic dance-hall fire in 1929 has been covered up for years in little West Table, Missouri. Only Alma DeGeer Dunahew, a maid, refuses to be quiet about the explosion that killed 42 people, including Ruby, the sister she adored. Her account takes us back to that night when forty-two dancers from this small corner of the Missouri Ozarks had perished in an instant, waltzing couples murdered midstep, blown toward the clouds in a pink mist chased by towering flames. When the book opens, the narrator, Almas 12-yearold grandson Alek, is spending the summer with her: She frightened me at every dawn the summer I stayed with her. Shed sit on the edge of her bed, long hair down, down to the floor and shaking as she brushed and brushed. Her hair was as long as her story. Still, Alek was a curious even rapt listener, despite his fathers warning that the story was only Almas version. Uneducated, married to a drunk, and trying to feed three hungry boys, Almas life is hardscrabble and just one dropped dish and a loud reprimand from complete and utter poverty. We witness her pathetic triumph when she announces to her sons theres gonna be supper because shed sneaked leftovers from the plates of her employers children. Thus, Almas worldview is grim in contrast to Rubys, the younger sister refusing with sass and vinegar to accept the life doled out to her. Woodrell takes enormous care getting the details exactly right as when he describes Almas house: A floor had been made of roughhewn planks that had been slowly rubbed to haggard softness by clomping boots, wallowing toddlers in flour sack britches, woolen socks sliding, and the brisk sweeps of a cornhusk broom. Heres a story about rich and poor, cruelty and kindness, love and regret in a sharp portrait of rural America during the Great Depression.

Henry Fonda, George Brent, and Faye Bainter were some of the other actors. Davis won an Academy Award for this picture. Its a pleasant way to spend a couple of afternoon hours. Whats even better is that its free thanks to Master the Possibilities. Fifteen Master the Possibilities programs have openings Hi from Janice and Bob In March we had a fantastic line dance workshop with Ira and Diane Weisburd. Everyone had a fun filled time dancing the afternoon away. It was great doing the old dances and learning new ones. An added benefit was seeing old friends and meeting new ones, some from different parts of Florida. We danced a collection of different levelsbeginners, improver and intermediate dances. We are now teaching several of the new dances Ira taught. Our line dance class will continue every Monday from 12:45 to 2:45 p.m. at the H & R Ballroom. When the remodeling of the H & R building begins we will then have the class at the Arbor Ballroom. During the summer months our class will return to its regular time 1 to 3 p.m. Anyone interested in joining us, please call Janice at 352-861-9345 or Bob at 352-873-4478. By the way our dances are on You Tube.Life South Blood MobileWhen will this winter end? That is a question being asked here in Florida along with most of the rest of the nation. Record low temperatures and incredible snow falls have blanketed much of the northern states. Florida, especially in our area, has had numerous unsteady rises and falls in our temperatures and rainfall totals. We have survived and in many cases thrived in good health and good spirits. Is it not time to share with others where and when we are able? One of the easiest ways to help others is by donating a pint of blood every eight weeks. The Life South Bloodmobile will again be taking donations on Monday, May 5. The Life South bus will be in the front parking lot of OTOWs Health and Recreation Building from 8 a.m. tp 4 p.m. Its easy. and (relatively) quick. And it is good for yourself and for the three other people who will benefit from your donation. Drop by, roll up your sleeve, enjoy a drink and a small snack, let our very competent professionals take your donation, pick up a small gift and a sweet and nutritious treat, then go home knowing you have just helped save three other human beings. Beat winter... be a winner! Following are the names of our 31 fantastic donors from Life Souths March blood drive: George Augur, Shannon Beall, Barbara Belz, Donnamarie Castellano, Esther Cohen, Richard Copeland, Susan Copeland, Robert Cura, Lynn Dowd, Kathleen Dushary, Nancy Frank, Eve Gillespie, Raymond Governatori, John Hegarty, Aaron Hertz, Joseph Hilchey, John King, Lila King, Barbara Kratz, Nancy Ludvik, Kenna Martin, Donna McMurray, Barbara Nastally, James Nottingham, Carol Recknor, Norman Recknor, Harold Rutkowski, Carol Seidman, Hazel Taylor, Paul Wagnitz, Emma Wanamaker.To reach me, please call 237-9208 or e-mail me at jroberta@cfl.rr.com OTOW Happenings June Roberta Jerry and Karen Schneider at the Lions club table with photos and information about the Recycled Trashy Fashion show at the Cultural Center Saturday at 6:30.

After a preliminary round, the six top winners played in a semi-final round robin the next day. Those advancing were Barry Emery, Santo Inserra, Russ Acquard, Joe Huszar, Bill Tetzlaff and Bill Stiles. Several players had the same number of wins so the tie breaker of most points won was used to determine the last couple of semi-finalists. Barry Emery won all his matches during both days so he earned the top spot in the finals. Santo Inserra, Bill Tetzlaff and Russ Acquard joined him for a best of three championship match. The teams were Barry and Santo against Bill and Russ. Barry and Santo were the victors and so earned first place in this years tournament. Special thanks to Sandy Weiler and Dianne Reams for acting as official score keepers, a job they has held for several years. Thanks also to Joe Huszar and Barry Emery for organizing, promoting and providing refreshments. Oak Run has two courts that are used for both pickle ball and pad-rac.

asks on the phone, English or Espanol, theyre just plain dumb. Now, Im going to really throw something at you. We here in America speak American. How about that. Those people in England and only England speak English, and there are eight dialects in England, not counting Cockney, where the H is dropped when speaking. Its also not including Scotland or Ireland or the Ile of Wight. In Canada, they actually speak Canadian, either in English or French. In Australia they speak Australian. Its never referred to as English, heaven forbid. Now English is spoken throughout the world not because of America, but because of England. Now, weve had English, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Portuguese explorers, who took their language to many lands around the world, and those languages are still used in those areas, but all have their own dialects. When referring a particular language such as Spanish, know of what you speak. Lets get back to Spanish. Ive been to Spain a couple times, both inland and on the coast, and its a beautiful country, with wonderful people, and its a crime those people who are not from Spain, misrepresent that country by misrepresenting, how they speak, and claiming its Spanish. Its just plain gibberish. There is much more to be written regarding language around the world, and some are very beautiful, but Im only addressing the one which is abused the most.

Well, neither have I, except for last week. I do not know what was going on last week, all I know is everything went according to plan. My plan, that is. I was on a roll. In a sense, that worries me. I am not accustomed to having my week work out according to my plans. Normally, if I can get 50 percent of my plans accomplished in a week, I am doing pretty good. Last week was one of those weeks, which may never repeat itself ever again, I am sorry to say. Or, am I sorry? In contrast, the week before it was horrendous. This week was different in every respect. I enjoyed this week, particularly the fact that I got all my to-do-list accomplished and by early Friday afternoon, I had nothing to do. Nothing to do! Then a thought wrestled my brain to the mat. What if the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage found out I had finished all my work and had nothing to do? When I thought about this, one thought that was predominant was that it is a good thing when I do NOT finish everything in a week. Then, I have the excuse that I have too much to do to delve into the honey-do-list of which my wife is most famous. I believe this honey-do-list is something mothers pass on to their daughters. It is part of the womens secret society that does not permit any intrusion from the non-female counterpart. It is the reason wives prefer their husbands call them the secret name, Honey. Whenever the husband uses this term of endearment the wife smiles one of those romantic smiles that her husband has no idea what is behind that smile. It has taken me a long time to come to this point of understanding. While, it is very gratifying to get your work for the week done ahead of schedule, it creates an opportunity for the intrusion of that infamous honey-do-list. This list has no end to it. When you accomplish one item on the honey-do-list, three other items appear automatically. It is virtually impossible to finish everything on that list. It is part of the wifes secret society no man can penetrate. Being on such a good roll in any given week is not the grand thing I thought it was. I am now content to have my desk piled high with unfinished work at the end of each week. Since I had a little bit of time on my hands, I read what good old King Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived, thought along these lines. Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest (Ecclesiastes 9:10). If I do not use my time to the best of my ability, the probabilities are pretty high somebody will intrude and use that time for some other use.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att.net. His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com. I am on a roll, so dont rock the boat Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Sometimes we learn life lessons in the strangest ways. Living in Ocala with its diverse population of minorities has opened my eyes to the religion and culture of many of my neighbors. Like most people, the old adage Birds of a feather flock together is true for most of my social situations but the other day I received a lesson from a most unlikely and unexpected source. Since I was all caught up on my columns, I decided to spend a little time pampering myself at the lingerie boutique. For me, a cancer survivor, this is a very important aspect of coping with my diagnosis and so I was looking forward to purchasing items to help me feel sexy and feminine. The sales associate was only too willing to assist me and was delighted to show me all the latest items including their new French-inspired collection. I was really enjoying myself trying on all sorts of bras, each one more beautiful than the other, when I suddenly sat down and looked at straight at the associate and said: After all I have been through, I am just so glad to be alive. This kind of feeling and emotion is very typical of women who have dealt with breast cancer but what came next was most amazing. That sales lady just gave me a big hug and in an accent as broad as her hometown of Atlantic she instructed me: If de Lawd wants you to be here, then you be here! I Just loved that line and it put a lot into perspective for me. Why exactly are we here? How do we make the most of the time we have? The Jewish tradition has much to say on this topic and while most people would agree that God has a plan for us all, Judaism gives us some specifics ideas about this. Traditionally we are here to make the world a better place. Through something we call Tikun Olam, repairing the world, Jews strive to combat social injustice and are in the forefront in environmental and ecological issues. We are also involved with the homeless, the disadvantaged and disenfranchised. Too many times when the world messes itself up, some Jewish scientist comes to the rescue and saves the day. We strive for world peace and devote ourselves to humanitarian causes. From a spiritual point of view, we are commanded to give tzedakah, loosely translated as charity to help those less fortunate than ourselves. The word tzedakah comes from the Hebrew word for righteousness so by helping our fellow neighbors we are following on a righteous path. Tzedakah can take the form of a check to a local charity, or donating goods or time to a worthy organization. The Torah also acts as a specific guide for moral and ethical behavior. The Ten Commandments, the laws of keeping kosher, lighting Shabbat candles and other rituals, observing the Sabbath and other holy days, all seek to create a sense of holiness for the Jewish spirit. Add acts of loving-kindness to the mlange, and you have a recipe for a Torah-centered life. All these mitzvot, commandments, are important Jewish values, which seek to make us more human and better people. They are our raison detre, our reason for being. And so we go about our lives, in my case, writing columns on Judaism and giving service to my synagogue. I give tzedakah and do mitzvot when I can while balancing my role as wife, mother and grandmother. I try to maximize the time I have, however, waiting in phone queues for answers to credit card or bank questions does have a negative effect on my busy day!

asks on the phone, English or Espanol, theyre just plain dumb. Now, Im going to really throw something at you. We here in America speak American. How about that. Those people in England and only England speak English, and there are eight dialects in England, not counting Cockney, where the H is dropped when speaking. Its also not including Scotland or Ireland or the Ile of Wight. In Canada, they actually speak Canadian, either in English or French. In Australia they speak Australian. Its never referred to as English, heaven forbid. Now English is spoken throughout the world not because of America, but because of England. Now, weve had English, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Portuguese explorers, who took their language to many lands around the world, and those languages are still used in those areas, but all have their own dialects. When referring a particular language such as Spanish, know of what you speak. Lets get back to Spanish. Ive been to Spain a couple times, both inland and on the coast, and its a beautiful country, with wonderful people, and its a crime those people who are not from Spain, misrepresent that country by misrepresenting, how they speak, and claiming its Spanish. Its just plain gibberish. There is much more to be written regarding language around the world, and some are very beautiful, but Im only addressing the one which is abused the most. Bill Ford Oak RunFriday, April 25, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, April 25, 2014 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in SOUTH MARION Citizen LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Have you ever had one of those weeks where everything went exactly as planned? Well, neither have I, except for last week. I do not know what was going on last week, all I know is everything went according to plan. My plan, that is. I was on a roll. In a sense, that worries me. I am not accustomed to having my week work out according to my plans. Normally, if I can get 50 percent of my plans accomplished in a week, I am doing pretty good. Last week was one of those weeks, which may never repeat itself ever again, I am sorry to say. Or, am I sorry? In contrast, the week before it was horrendous. This week was different in every respect. I enjoyed this week, particularly the fact that I got all my to-do-list accomplished and by early Friday afternoon, I had nothing to do. Nothing to do! Then a thought wrestled my brain to the mat. What if the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage found out I had finished all my work and had nothing to do? When I thought about this, one thought that was predominant was that it is a good thing when I do NOT finish everything in a week. Then, I have the excuse that I have too much to do to delve into the honey-do-list of which my wife is most famous. I believe this honey-do-list is something mothers pass on to their daughters. It is part of the womens secret society that does not permit any intrusion from the non-female counterpart. It is the reason wives prefer their husbands call them the secret name, Honey. Whenever the husband uses this term of endearment the wife smiles one of those romantic smiles that her husband has no idea what is behind that smile. It has taken me a long time to come to this point of understanding. While, it is very gratifying to get your work for the week done ahead of schedule, it creates an opportunity for the intrusion of that infamous honey-do-list. This list has no end to it. When you accomplish one item on the honey-do-list, three other items appear automatically. It is virtually impossible to finish everything on that list. It is part of the wifes secret society no man can penetrate. Being on such a good roll in any given week is not the grand thing I thought it was. I am now content to have my desk piled high with unfinished work at the end of each week. Since I had a little bit of time on my hands, I read what good old King Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived, thought along these lines. Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest (Ecclesiastes 9:10). If I do not use my time to the best of my ability, the probabilities are pretty high somebody will intrude and use that time for some other use.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att.net. His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com. I am on a roll, so dont rock the boat Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Sometimes we learn life lessons in the strangest ways. Living in Ocala with its diverse population of minorities has opened my eyes to the religion and culture of many of my neighbors. Like most people, the old adage Birds of a feather flock together is true for most of my social situations but the other day I received a lesson from a most unlikely and unexpected source. Since I was all caught up on my columns, I decided to spend a little time pampering myself at the lingerie boutique. For me, a cancer survivor, this is a very important aspect of coping with my diagnosis and so I was looking forward to purchasing items to help me feel sexy and feminine. The sales associate was only too willing to assist me and was delighted to show me all the latest items including their new French-inspired collection. I was really enjoying myself trying on all sorts of bras, each one more beautiful than the other, when I suddenly sat down and looked at straight at the associate and said: After all I have been through, I am just so glad to be alive. This kind of feeling and emotion is very typical of women who have dealt with breast cancer but what came next was most amazing. That sales lady just gave me a big hug and in an accent as broad as her hometown of Atlantic she instructed me: If de Lawd wants you to be here, then you be here! I Just loved that line and it put a lot into perspective for me. Why exactly are we here? How do we make the most of the time we have? The Jewish tradition has much to say on this topic and while most people would agree that God has a plan for us all, Judaism gives us some specifics ideas about this. Traditionally we are here to make the world a better place. Through something we call Tikun Olam, repairing the world, Jews strive to combat social injustice and are in the forefront in environmental and ecological issues. We are also involved with the homeless, the disadvantaged and disenfranchised. Too many times when the world messes itself up, some Jewish scientist comes to the rescue and saves the day. We strive for world peace and devote ourselves to humanitarian causes. From a spiritual point of view, we are commanded to give tzedakah, loosely translated as charity to help those less fortunate than ourselves. The word tzedakah comes from the Hebrew word for righteousness so by helping our fellow neighbors we are following on a righteous path. Tzedakah can take the form of a check to a local charity, or donating goods or time to a worthy organization. The Torah also acts as a specific guide for moral and ethical behavior. The Ten Commandments, the laws of keeping kosher, lighting Shabbat candles and other rituals, observing the Sabbath and other holy days, all seek to create a sense of holiness for the Jewish spirit. Add acts of loving-kindness to the mlange, and you have a recipe for a Torah-centered life. All these mitzvot, commandments, are important Jewish values, which seek to make us more human and better people. They are our raison detre, our reason for being. And so we go about our lives, in my case, writing columns on Judaism and giving service to my synagogue. I give tzedakah and do mitzvot when I can while balancing my role as wife, mother and grandmother. I try to maximize the time I have, however, waiting in phone queues for answers to credit card or bank questions does have a negative effect on my busy day! I hope the Lord wants me around for a long time. I have a lot more columns to write. The question is: What are we doing here?

After a preliminary round, the six top winners played in a semi-final round robin the next day. Those advancing were Barry Emery, Santo Inserra, Russ Acquard, Joe Huszar, Bill Tetzlaff and Bill Stiles. Several players had the same number of wins so the tie breaker of most points won was used to determine the last couple of semi-finalists. Barry Emery won all his matches during both days so he earned the top spot in the finals. Santo Inserra, Bill Tetzlaff and Russ Acquard joined him for a best of three championship match. The teams were Barry and Santo against Bill and Russ. Barry and Santo were the victors and so earned first place in this years tournament. Special thanks to Sandy Weiler and Dianne Reams for acting as official score keepers, a job they has held for several years.

Everyone had a fun filled time dancing the afternoon away. It was great doing the old dances and learning new ones. An added benefit was seeing old friends and meeting new ones, some from different parts of Florida. We danced a collection of different levelsbeginners, improver and intermediate dances. We are now teaching several of the new dances Ira taught. Our line dance class will continue every Monday from 12:45 to 2:45 p.m. at the H & R Ballroom. When the remodeling of the H & R building begins we will then have the class at the Arbor Ballroom.

Record low temperatures and incredible snow falls have blanketed much of the northern states. Florida, especially in our area, has had numerous unsteady rises and falls in our temperatures and rainfall totals. We have survived and in many cases thrived in good health and good spirits. Is it not time to share with others where and when we are able? One of the easiest ways to help others is by donating a pint of blood every eight weeks. The Life South Bloodmobile will again be taking donations on Monday, May 5. The Life South bus will be in the front parking lot of OTOWs Health and Recreation Building from 8 a.m. tp 4 p.m. Its easy. and (relatively) quick. And it is good for yourself and for the three other people who will benefit from your donation. Drop by, roll up your sleeve, enjoy a drink and a small snack, let our very competent professionals take your donation, pick up a small gift and a sweet and nutritious treat, then go home knowing you have just helped save three other human beings. Beat winter... be a winner! Following are the names of our 31 fantastic donors from Life Souths March blood drive: George Augur, Shannon Beall, Barbara Belz, Donnamarie Castellano, Esther Cohen, Richard Copeland, Susan Copeland, Robert Cura, Lynn Dowd, Kathleen Dushary, Nancy Frank, Eve Gillespie, Raymond Governatori, John Hegarty, Aaron Hertz, Joseph Hilchey, John King, Lila King, Barbara Kratz, Nancy Ludvik, Kenna Martin, Donna McMurray, Barbara Nastally, James Nottingham, Carol Recknor, Norman Recknor, Harold Rutkowski, Carol Seidman, Hazel Taylor, Paul Wagnitz, Emma Wanamaker.To reach me, please call 237-9208 or e-mail me at jroberta@cfl.rr.com OTOW Happenings June Roberta Jerry and Karen Schneider at the Lions club table with photos and information about the Recycled Trashy Fashion show at the Cultural Center Saturday at 6:30.

Dear Readers, I hope you have enjoyed the Easter weekend. It is fun to see a grandfather/grandmother giving the children a ride in the golf cart. You cant feel anything but pleased when you see their happy faces. I am considering having some space dedicated to news from a resident, not necessarily club news. This past week I have been contacted re: a special anniversary of a longtime resident. It is awesome to hear of anniversaries of 60 years (plus). Let me know if you think it would be of interest. I have a short piece and picture of one of longtime and active couples who celebrated their 60th. This would be a good time to applaud Richard Wolf, Linkside neighborhood for being honored by the Ocala Health with their 2013 First Humanitarian Award. Mr. Wolf has been a volunteer with them since 1988, presently at West Marion Hospital. Oak Run is fortunate to have those residents that go out into the community and volunteer. Thank you Richard. Now to the coming events. LauraOak Run LibraryRecently the Friends of the Oak Run Library held their regular meeting and Karen Hill of the Literacy Council was the speaker. Karen described the workings of the Literacy Council and how they are helping the 19% adult Illiteracy rate in Marion County. In addition to teaching people to read, the Council also trains people in speaking English and citizenship classes. A new challenge for the Council will be preparation for the GED test which will now be exclusively on the computer. This new GED test will require a minimum speed of keyboarding of 20 words per minute, and so the Council will be helping students to not only study for the test but learn how to efficiently operate the computer. Volunteers are always needed for these various types of programs and training is available. At the April meeting, the Board of Directors of the Library recognized the following librarians who have volunteered in the library for 15 years or more. They are: Alice Anderson; Patricia Arnold; Joan Beers; Viola Braman; Barbara Dalton; Gabriella Ethier; Eleanor Henry; Ann Johnson; Mary Koenig; Nancy Lillard; Joanne Misener; Barbara Murphy; Helen Neuendorf; Anne Pelkowski; Elvira Rusconi; Mary Seddon; Carolyn Sokolik; and Marjorie Thomas. Congratulations and a tremendous thank you for all your dedication and hours of work in the library. The Friends of the Oak Run Library hold meetings on the first Friday in February, April, June, October, and December at 1 pm in the Orchid Club Auditorium. You are encouraged to attend to hear the variety of speakers and programs that are scheduled. In addition, there are wonderful treats made by our librarians.Tuesday Classic Line DancingGood news: the very popular Tuesday evening classic line dance classes have been scheduled to be held at the Orchard Club. Effective Tuesday, April 29, they will be dancing on the lovely, highly polished wooden floors. so mark your calendar. Our Snowbird dancer friends have left and other dance classes may take the summer off, but they will continue their dancing schedule. Over the past months, a number of our residents, have requested an Introductory line dance class. Such a class may be introduced into the current Tuesday summer schedule -starting at about 6:15 p.m. Basically the class would be for those who want to learn to line dance or want a basic refresher course. The agenda, would be to learn/review the most popular basic Easy dances, like those done at socials (i.e. Electric Slide, Cupid Shuffle, Mama Marie and Boot Scootin Boggie. etc). However, in order to schedule this class, it is contingent on the amount of interest for that particular time-frame schedule. For those interested in this Introductory line dance class and can fit it in conveniently to their schedule (Tuesday evening 6:15 p.m.), call Nancy and let her know. Do try it for the summer months. We all know that dancing is a perfect exercise for both your body and mind while you enjoy the company of your friends and neighbors. Their motto is ~dance like no one is watching~.60th anniversary celebrationGeorge and Barbara Murphy are all smiles as they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary along with 52 friends and neighbors while on a recent Celebrity Reflection cruise to the Eastern Caribbean. Shirley and Paul Segal of the Preserve celebrated their 60th with family members at a dinner at Stumpknockers. They also want to thank the couple who anonymously paid for their check at Bob Evans.

PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE10 THE MAIDS VERSION By Daniel WoodrellOnce again, Daniel Woodrell sets his novelso short its almost a novellain his beloved Ozarks. Like its predecessor Winters Bone, it is bleak and penetrating. (The film adaptation of the latter launched actress Jennifer Lawrences career.) In this story the truth behind a tragic dance-hall fire in 1929 has been covered up for years in little West Table, Missouri. Only Alma DeGeer Dunahew, a maid, refuses to be quiet about the explosion that killed 42 people, including Ruby, the sister she adored. Her account takes us back to that night when forty-two dancers from this small corner of the Missouri Ozarks had perished in an instant, waltzing couples murdered midstep, blown toward the clouds in a pink mist chased by towering flames. When the book opens, the narrator, Almas 12-yearold grandson Alek, is spending the summer with her: She frightened me at every dawn the summer I stayed with her. Shed sit on the edge of her bed, long hair down, down to the floor and shaking as she brushed and brushed. Her hair was as long as her story. Still, Alek was a curious even rapt listener, despite his fathers warning that the story was only Almas version. Uneducated, married to a drunk, and trying to feed three hungry boys, Almas life is hardscrabble and just one dropped dish and a loud reprimand from complete and utter poverty. We witness her pathetic triumph when she announces to her sons theres gonna be supper because shed sneaked leftovers from the plates of her employers children. Thus, Almas worldview is grim in contrast to Rubys, the younger sister refusing with sass and vinegar to accept the life doled out to her. Woodrell takes enormous care getting the details exactly right as when he describes Almas house: A floor had been made of roughhewn planks that had been slowly rubbed to haggard softness by clomping boots, wallowing toddlers in flour sack britches, woolen socks sliding, and the brisk sweeps of a cornhusk broom. Heres a story about rich and poor, cruelty and kindness, love and regret in a sharp portrait of rural America during the Great Depression.

Friday, April 25, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, April 25, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenThose of us who rely on political drama, real or contrived, to justify our professional existence are drooling over the possibility that the next presidential balloting will be a dynasty election. Obviously we have a huge amount of foolishness and outright nastiness to get past between now and then, but what a story it would be if the party nominees are Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, Queen Hil vs. Prince Jeb. Imagine the plot lines: Tudors, Windsors and the Beverly Hillbillies.Instead of a Democratic Convention, that party could have a coronation, assuming Hillary decides she's ready to take the plunge and deal with the life's worth of baggage the Republicans are sure to pile on to her. But from two years out, it looks like the nomination is hers if she wants it. Jeb is a different story. Before he can even try to be Bush the Third, he'll have to fend off the nasties in his own party. He's already gotten a taste of how brutal they can be by daring to express an unhateful view of illegal immigrants: "Yes, they broke the law," he said, "but it's not a felony. It's an act of love. It's an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime, that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn't rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families." If that seemed innocuous to you, that's because you're not in one of those groups that wants to seal the border, or you're not one of the other GOP wannabes, like Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, who want to pander to them. Typical is the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC. Shortly after Bush committed his heresy, ALIPAC President William Gheen fired off a statement: "You could say that prostitutes do what they do out of an act of love for their children and families, or that bank robbers are engaging in an act of love because they're stealing the money not just for themselves but maybe for some of their family members. No one has ever said anything as ridiculous as this before." So Bush is in trouble with the hardliners who seem to control his party's agenda. Even though the Republican leadership insists it is trying to connect with the growing community of Hispanic Americans, who overwhelmingly vote against them, the controlling harsh sentiment within the GOP makes these outreach efforts appear to be nothing more than gloss. But maybe Bush is onto something. He's high on the list of establishment Republicans who are less interested in ideological purity and more in victory. They could rally around Jeb as someone who can appeal to the bulk of moderate Americans who are frightened of the hellfire and brimstone immoderates. Meanwhile, over in the Democratic realm, aka Hillaryland, the question is whether she'll abdicate, and if not, who will be her person in waiting, aka vice-presidential selection. Until then, those of us who are constantly desperate for a narrative are also waiting and dreaming about the 2020 election -the race between George P. Bush and Chelsea Clinton.Bob Franken is a columnist for King Features. For those of us who grew up riding the 42nd Street or Staten Island ferries in New York, its hard to imagine the so-called ferries that keep having accidents in the waters off Asia. The New York ferries carried cars and passengers, few by comparison with the foreign boats, across the river. It was a cheap, stress-free alternative to negotiating the Lincoln or Holland tunnels or the George Washington Bridge, you know, Gov. Christies bridge that his administration shut down to punish a local mayor. Alternatives to getting to Staten Island involved miles of extra driving. To me, those ferries in Asia are major-sized boats, somewhat related to small cruise ships. And, evidently, people are packed in to get from one destination to another. The latest disaster, a ferry off South Korea, shows the lack of safety planning and execution in case of emergency. The captain didnt go down with his ship; in fact, he was one of the first ones off the capsizing boat, and now is under arrest for his actions. In statements eerily similar to the 9-11 scenario at the World Trade Center in New York, the passengers, mostly students, were told to stay where they were for a few crucial minutes instead of trying to get off. You remember that there were announcements at the World Trade Center telling people to stay where they were as they waited for rescue personnel, and thats where they were when the towers collapsed. The agony of the relatives of those on board is apparent as television networks wait for word along with them. The text messages from those stuck on board the sinking ferry, such as the one who said he may never get to tell his parents in person again that he loved them, are gut-wrenching as you realize what these people are going through as they hope for the lives of their children. We see similar grief among the relatives of those apparently lost on the Malaysian plane that has yet to be found after weeks of searching. Yet somehow the ferry disaster is different, partly because we have pictures of the capsized boat, knowing that these young people are trapped inside. For someone like me, whose motto now is If I cant drive, I dont go, its sympathy from afar for those who find these ferries the easiest way to get from one point to another. Ive been emphasizing the ferries in Asia, but there is one thats not too far from home. Years ago, when I was working in Fort Myers Beach, it was suggested that it was easy to spend a day in Key West by taking a passengers-only ferry that ran between the two cities. When you look at a map, you realize how much travel time is saved by going this route. I politely declined, especially knowing I would have to walk or find other transportation to get around Key West. Actually, deep down, that had nothing to do with it. Spending hours on the water with no land in sight was not, for me, a pleasant prospect. But I realize for some, especially those in the area of Southeast Asia and off the coast of Africa, this is an easy way to get from one part of the continent to another. Far too often, though, we read about these disasters. I just hope that there is more concentration on safety issues so we minimize the loss of life on these ferries.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

When they read about places in the country that have battles over immigration status and behavior of foreigners, people tend to think, as they live in their quiet Marion County world, that its nice that it doesnt happen here. When they go to meetings such as the County Commission zoning hearings last week, they realize that such conflicts are not far away. These case was listed innocently enough on the agenda as item C2, 140409SU, Rasem and Nawai Okab, Special Use Permit in A-1, 12.37 acres. It turns out it was for a medical clinic, church building and soccer field for Guadalupana Catholic Mission. Scheduled to be put there shortly is the medical clinic, with the church and soccer field to come later. There is already a small church near the intersection of State Road 40 west and 110th Avenue. Neighbors of the proposed facility, some living in an area called Dorchester Estates, came out to oppose the facility, which is backed by the Rev. Patrick Sheedy, pastor of Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, who spoke at the meeting. The display of anti-Hispanic infiltration was loud and clear. People spoke of living near Little Mexico, and used phrases such as these people, referring to the Hispanics, and phrase generally construed as being racist in nature. One lady complained that she was a Catholic, and couldnt go to the church because it was all in Spanish, and she had to drive 12 miles to go to church. There were some more rational arguments, especially concerning traffic and pedestrian safety. After a little bit of discussion, the commissioners approved the special use to allow the clinic. The Planning and Zoning Commission had recommended denial, but the anonymous staff backed approval. The discussion showed, however, that the national debate about Hispanics being assimilated into America is not to be ignored locally. Coupled with a letter printed in our publications recently concerning speaking English, it shows that right here in Marion County there is, among many people, a general anti-Hispanic feeling that runs deeper than people care to admit. There were some legitimate concerns raised by people about the location of this clinic, but opposition to such a facility simply because the people there speak another language shows a bias that decent people shouldnt accept. It brings us back to a comment from the late Rodney King, victim of a beating years ago in Los Angeles, who asked, Cant we all just get along. Sadly, in Marion County it appears we cant.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY No welcome sign for Hispanic clinic This was not your grandfathers ferry Presidential races look like all in the families READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com LETTER TO THE EDITOR Language abuse and misuseMuch has been written by myself and others of late, regarding the use of what is misinterpreted as Spanish. I personally appreciate the complimentary phone calls and e-mails, as well as the article in the citizen on April 18, about the use of other than English in America. It was alluded to in the article about speaking Spanish here. Well, Spanish is only spoken in Spain, the Canary Islands, or by Spanish people coming to this country, period. There is what is called American Spanish used in the western hemisphere. There are seven separate dialects of American Spanish in Argentina alone. But in the South America, Cuba, and Mexican areas, there are six distinct dialects of American Spanish, that are subdivided by region or country.

In last weeks Citizen, Editor Jim Clark remarked about being the victim of bullys when he was in school. Every one who has ever been the victim of this form of terrorism knows how much pain and suffering it causes. Unfortunately for a few people, being a bully doesnt end with youth. Recently a number of my neighbors and friends have had trees trimmed or removed from their property. Subsequently, they have received letters in their mail boxes accusing them of being Tree murderers. Wow; who would have thought that cutting foliage was a capital crime? It seems that some bullies are out of their tree. Now dont get me wrong; I like trees as much as the next person. They are beautiful to look at; provide shade; give us oxygen to breath and make a great home for birds and squirrels. On the other side of the coin; they grow roots that rip up concrete floors; damage septic tanks; sprinkler systems and other underground facilities. Their branches and leaves clog eaves and down spouts; damage shingles and the limbs or a whole tree occasionally falls on to a house. If the latter is occurring to ones property; dont you think that the prudent thing to do would be remove the tree or trim it? Doesnt a home owner have the right to improve the condition of his or her property without some, how can I put this politely; without some over zealous tree lover accusing them of a crime? There are plenty of trees around; the woods are full of them. There is lots of oxygen to breathe and places for the birds to nest. Shade is available to those who seek it and in spite of houses being built; logs being burned in fire places; furniture being manufactured and hard wood floors being laid; there are still lots of beautiful trees. Intimidation may have worked for bullies when we were in school but after being around the block several times; adults are no longer willing to be influenced by nasty notes or remarks made behind their backs. If you want trees; plant as many as you like in your own yard and no one will say a thing. By the same token, if you keep your nose and opinions out of your neighbors property; life will be much more harmonious for all of us. A word of caution while I am on the subject; be careful when youre raking leaves. My buddy up north broke his leg trying to rake leaves; he fell out of the tree.

Mouth-Watering! These were some of the words that were used to describe the fully-cooked baby back ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community during last years rib event. Happily, on Saturday, May 3 (Kentucky Derby Day) starting at 10 a.m., the tent at the Bank of the Ozarks on State Road 200 and SW 99th Street Road, will be back with the purpose of raising funds to allow the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest to support the College of Central Florida Nursing Scholarship Program and other local and international projects. A full rack of smokecooked baby back ribs costs only $18 if you prepay and pick up your order before 12:30 p.m. The cost is $20 for racks that are not prepaid. It is highly recommended to pre-order and to get there early (if you dont preorder) before the ribs are gone! Before smoke-cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. Rotary President Bonnie Clark says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret thats as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe. Youll need to eat the Rotarys baby back ribs to experience the great taste. If you want to place your ribs in the freezer and eat them later, reheating directions are included with your wrapped order. Pre-paid tickets are being sold by members of the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest. The Club meets on Tuesdays at 7:45 a.m. in suite 240 in the Doctors Office Building at the West Marion Community Hospital.

One of the speakers said that crowds already congregate on 110th, and wont get out of the way when drivers come along. Another said there was a man on a three-wheeler, whos drunk, who drives on the road. One man said his property is adjacent to a soccer field already in the neighborhood and finds debris and garbage all over the place. These people dont care, a lady from the area said. Im Catholic and I cant go to this church because its all in Spanish. I have to drive 12 miles to find an English church. She also referenced the existing field and other fields that are not too far away. We dont need a third soccer field, she said. Commissioner Stan McClain made the motion to approve the facility. Quite frankly, they are here to stay, and we need to reach out. CLINICCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 AUTHORSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Today is National Arbor Day, a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for trees. Some states celebrate their own holiday where the date varies, depending on climate and the suitable planting season. Here in Florida it is celebrated on the third Friday in January. Ive been rooting around and have gone out on a limb for some stories for today.Mooed musicA man had an ox that sang wordless songs so beautiful they brought tears to his eyes. The ox stood under his favorite tree, and sang. The man told his neighbors, and they came to hear the ox, but the critter wouldnt sing unless they paid the man. When they did, the ox serenaded them for an hour. People came from all over to hear the ox, and pretty soon the man so rich that he spent $50,000 building a special house for it. But even with all that money spent, the bovines house looked, well, quite ordinary. It was, after all, a hum bull home.Seat of learningI have a very distasteful job, complained the genealogist. I have been employed by Mrs. Richey to look up her family tree, and it will be my unpleasant duty to inform her that one of her ancestors was electrocuted at Sing Sing. Why worry about that? Just tell her the man occupied the chair of applied electricity at one of our public institutions.Fly awayR. Boles was an amazing man. Every day, he would climb a palm tree and fly it to work. Word got to the military about his abilities. They brought him to the base to see if his capabilities might be used. The man was worried because he could see no palm trees. But nobody would listen. They told him, All trees are the same. They brought him to the general, who wanted him to demonstrate what he could do. He said, But sir, this is an elm tree. But the general snarled back, Trees is trees, right? Now get in that tree, and fly. The man climbed the tree and tried to fly it. He tried and tried again, but the tree wooden even budge. The general got impatient. Whats the matter, son? Cant you fly trees? Sir, thats what Ive been trying to tell everyone. Im a palm pilot.Dividing Souls On the outskirts of town, there was a big old pecan tree by the cemetery fence. One day two boys filled up a bucket with pecans and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts. One for you, and one for me. One for you, one for me, said one boy. Several were dropped and rolled down toward the fence. Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He stopped and heard, One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me. Oh my, he shuddered, Its Satan and the Lord dividing the souls at the cemetery. When an old man with a cane hobbled along, the boy said, Come here quick. You wont believe what I just heard. Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up souls. The man said, Beat it, kid, cant you see its hard for me to walk? When the boy insisted, the man hobbled to the cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me The old man whispered, Boy, you, youve been telling the truth! Lets see the devil himself. Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, but were still unable to see anything. At last they heard, One for you, one for me and one last one for you. Thats all. Now lets go get those two nuts by the fence, and well be done. They say the old guy made it back to town 5 minutes before the boy.

Island Trail What are Hearing Aid Channels and Bands? Two of the most important characteristics of hearing aids are Channels and Bands which are also some of the most misunderstood by users. To start off with, the number of channels or bands has nothing to do with the number of programs or volume settings. Sounds are processed and amplified by a hearing aid based on frequencies (or the pitch of a sound) and volumes. A peek at your audiogram will tell you how much amplification you need for any given frequency. In a nutshell, bands and channels thus determine how granular a hearing aid can process and amplify the sounds it perceives. To quote a great explanation from Philips: A band is what is used to control volume in different frequencies. This allows us to adjust more volume in a specific area of your hearing loss without effecting other areas where you might need less volume The more bands the hearing aid offers the more room we have to fit the aid to your hearing loss. Channels break up the frequency range into individual channels. This allows the hearing aid to differentiate noise from speech. The more channels the hearing aid has the more fine tuned it can be. For instance the sound of keys falling on a table, or water running in the sink may be overwhelming. When your hearing aid offers many channels we can adjust each frequency that is too loud without sacrificing the things you want to hear, like your spouse or boss. Thus, just the way a high-resolution picture gives you a sharper image, more bands and channels provide you with a more granular sound quality. More channels will provide better resolution on the frequencies and more bands will mean better resolution on the volume thus allowing your hearing aid to match your audiogram more accurately. 000HV3L OCALA EAST 352-861-2275 3405 SW College Rd., Ste. 207 Colours Plaza, next to Red Lobster LARGO 727-531-7500 3690 East Bay Drive PALM HARBOR 727-781-8100 34838 US Hwy. 19 N., Ste. 34838 SIEMENS 101 SIEMENS 3MI SIEMENS 5MI SIEMENS 7MI 000HY7X

Man, 86, loses $$ in fraud BY JIM CLARK EditorThe Marion County Sheriffs Office is investigating an apparent case of financial fraud, with an 86-year-old On Top of the World resident as the victim. According to the report, the victim wrote nine checks totaling more than $70,000 to people possibly associated with a cleaning service that does his house. His son in California became alarmed when his father called and said he and his wife needed money to pay their household bills and buy groceries. The son checked with the bank and found there was little money in an account that he says should have had more than $100,000. The son flew to Ocala to help his parents go to the Sheriffs Office. Deputies have three names of possible suspects, and the investigation is continuing. BY JIM CLARK EditorIgnoring the action by the Planning and Zoning Commission and the anti-Hispanic statements from neighbors, the Marion County Commission approved a project for a clinic, church and soccer field in the northwest area. The location is just north of State Road 40 on Northwest 110th Avenue, across the street from a development called Dorchester Estates. The clinic will take shape first, with the church and soccer field to come later. The Rev. Patrick Sheedy, pastor of Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, spoke in favor of the project, called Guadalupana Catholic Mission. He said there is already a small church at the intersection of 40 and 110th, but that a larger facility was needed. He said the clinic would probably operate only one day a week to start. There is a shopping center at the corner of the two roads, and some suggested that it would be better if the clinic were put into existing storefronts at this location. Many of those who would use this clinic would be non-drivers, Disputed clinic gets zoning OK PLEASESEECLINIC, PAGE3 BY CAROL JONES Special to the CitizenFreedom Public Librarys newest program, the Coffee Club, features Sharon Colvin and Terri Borkgren who will talk about their books on Monday, April 28, at 10:30 a.m. Stop in for a cup of coffee and meet them. These two sisters put their separate talents together and dreamed up the Whispering Key Mystery series. Terri took various writing courses in college and Sharon wrote and produced TV commercials for an NBC affiliate. Both loved reading mysteries and enjoyed writing, so what would you expect? Of course, a mysteries series. Ideas for the first book started percolating during a visit from their younger sister. While touring the area, brainstorming happened involving a tour bus visiting different Florida locations where murders inevitably occurred. The What Ifs created two sister characters who had to solve the crimes, and the Whispering Key Mysteries were born.

Man, 86, loses $$ in fraud BY JIM CLARK EditorThe Marion County Sheriffs Office is investigating an apparent case of financial fraud, with an 86-year-old On Top of the World resident as the victim. According to the report, the victim wrote nine checks totaling more than $70,000 to people possibly associated with a cleaning service that does his house. His son in California became alarmed when his father called and said he and his wife needed money to pay their household bills and buy groceries. The son checked with the bank and found there was little money in an account that he says should have had more than $100,000. The son flew to Ocala to help his parents go to the Sheriffs Office. Deputies have three names of possible suspects, and the investigation is continuing. BY JIM CLARK EditorIgnoring the action by the Planning and Zoning Commission and the anti-Hispanic statements from neighbors, the Marion County Commission approved a project for a clinic, church and soccer field in the northwest area. The location is just north of State Road 40 on Northwest 110th Avenue, across the street from a development called Dorchester Estates. The clinic will take shape first, with the church and soccer field to come later. The Rev. Patrick Sheedy, pastor of Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, spoke in favor of the project, called Guadalupana Catholic Mission. He said there is already a small church at the intersection of 40 and 110th, but that a larger facility was needed. He said the clinic would probably operate only one day a week to start. There is a shopping center at the corner of the two roads, and some suggested that it would be better if the clinic were put into existing storefronts at this location. Many of those who would use this clinic would be non-drivers, Disputed clinic gets zoning OK PLEASESEECLINIC, PAGE3 BY CAROL JONES Special to the CitizenFreedom Public Librarys newest program, the Coffee Club, features Sharon Colvin and Terri Borkgren who will talk about their books on Monday, April 28, at 10:30 a.m. Stop in for a cup of coffee and meet them. These two sisters put their separate talents together and dreamed up the Whispering Key Mystery series. Terri took various writing courses in college and Sharon wrote and produced TV commercials for an NBC affiliate. Both loved reading mysteries and enjoyed writing, so what would you expect? Of course, a mysteries series. Ideas for the first book started percolating during a visit from their younger sister. While touring the area, brainstorming happened involving a tour bus visiting different Florida locations where murders inevitably occurred. The What Ifs created two sister characters who had to solve the crimes, and the Whispering Key Mysteries were born. Sharon and Terri and their families relocated to Florida from central Illinois for health reasons and warm weather, Librarys Coffee Club features mystery authors PHOTO BY RON RATNERLaw Enforcement Torch RunLaw enforcement personnel take off on Pine Avenue on the annual Torch Run.

Island Trail What are Hearing Aid Channels and Bands? Two of the most important characteristics of hearing aids are Channels and Bands which are also some of the most misunderstood by users. To start off with, the number of channels or bands has nothing to do with the number of programs or volume settings. Sounds are processed and amplified by a hearing aid based on frequencies (or the pitch of a sound) and volumes. A peek at your audiogram will tell you how much amplification you need for any given frequency. In a nutshell, bands and channels thus determine how granular a hearing aid can process and amplify the sounds it perceives. To quote a great explanation from Philips: A band is what is used to control volume in different frequencies. This allows us to adjust more volume in a specific area of your hearing loss without effecting other areas where you might need less volume The more bands the hearing aid offers the more room we have to fit the aid to your hearing loss. Channels break up the frequency range into individual channels. This allows the hearing aid to differentiate noise from speech. The more channels the hearing aid has the more fine tuned it can be. For instance the sound of keys falling on a table, or water running in the sink may be overwhelming. When your hearing aid offers many channels we can adjust each frequency that is too loud without sacrificing the things you want to hear, like your spouse or boss. Thus, just the way a high-resolution picture gives you a sharper image, more bands and channels provide you with a more granular sound quality. More channels will provide better resolution on the frequencies and more bands will mean better resolution on the volume thus allowing your hearing aid to match your audiogram more accurately. 000HV3L OCALA EAST 352-861-2275 3405 SW College Rd., Ste. 207 Colours Plaza, next to Red Lobster LARGO 727-531-7500 3690 East Bay Drive PALM HARBOR 727-781-8100 34838 US Hwy. 19 N., Ste. 34838 SIEMENS 101 SIEMENS 3MI SIEMENS 5MI SIEMENS 7MI 000HY7X

One of the speakers said that crowds already congregate on 110th, and wont get out of the way when drivers come along. Another said there was a man on a three-wheeler, whos drunk, who drives on the road. One man said his property is adjacent to a soccer field already in the neighborhood and finds debris and garbage all over the place. These people dont care, a lady from the area said. Im Catholic and I cant go to this church because its all in Spanish. I have to drive 12 miles to find an English church. She also referenced the existing field and other fields that are not too far away. We dont need a third soccer field, she said. Commissioner Stan McClain made the motion to approve the facility. Quite frankly, they are here to stay, and we need to reach out. CLINICCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 AUTHORSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Today is National Arbor Day, a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for trees. Some states celebrate their own holiday where the date varies, depending on climate and the suitable planting season. Here in Florida it is celebrated on the third Friday in January. Ive been rooting around and have gone out on a limb for some stories for today.Mooed musicA man had an ox that sang wordless songs so beautiful they brought tears to his eyes. The ox stood under his favorite tree, and sang. The man told his neighbors, and they came to hear the ox, but the critter wouldnt sing unless they paid the man. When they did, the ox serenaded them for an hour. People came from all over to hear the ox, and pretty soon the man so rich that he spent $50,000 building a special house for it. But even with all that money spent, the bovines house looked, well, quite ordinary. It was, after all, a hum bull home.Seat of learningI have a very distasteful job, complained the genealogist. I have been employed by Mrs. Richey to look up her family tree, and it will be my unpleasant duty to inform her that one of her ancestors was electrocuted at Sing Sing. Why worry about that? Just tell her the man occupied the chair of applied electricity at one of our public institutions.Fly awayR. Boles was an amazing man. Every day, he would climb a palm tree and fly it to work. Word got to the military about his abilities. They brought him to the base to see if his capabilities might be used. The man was worried because he could see no palm trees. But nobody would listen. They told him, All trees are the same. They brought him to the general, who wanted him to demonstrate what he could do. He said, But sir, this is an elm tree. But the general snarled back, Trees is trees, right? Now get in that tree, and fly. The man climbed the tree and tried to fly it. He tried and tried again, but the tree wooden even budge. The general got impatient. Whats the matter, son? Cant you fly trees? Sir, thats what Ive been trying to tell everyone. Im a palm pilot.Dividing Souls On the outskirts of town, there was a big old pecan tree by the cemetery fence. One day two boys filled up a bucket with pecans and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts. One for you, and one for me. One for you, one for me, said one boy. Several were dropped and rolled down toward the fence. Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He stopped and heard, One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me. Oh my, he shuddered, Its Satan and the Lord dividing the souls at the cemetery. When an old man with a cane hobbled along, the boy said, Come here quick. You wont believe what I just heard. Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up souls. The man said, Beat it, kid, cant you see its hard for me to walk? When the boy insisted, the man hobbled to the cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me The old man whispered, Boy, you, youve been telling the truth! Lets see the devil himself. Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, but were still unable to see anything. At last they heard, One for you, one for me and one last one for you. Thats all. Now lets go get those two nuts by the fence, and well be done. They say the old guy made it back to town 5 minutes before the boy.

Mouth-Watering! These were some of the words that were used to describe the fully-cooked baby back ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community during last years rib event. Happily, on Saturday, May 3 (Kentucky Derby Day) starting at 10 a.m., the tent at the Bank of the Ozarks on State Road 200 and SW 99th Street Road, will be back with the purpose of raising funds to allow the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest to support the College of Central Florida Nursing Scholarship Program and other local and international projects. A full rack of smokecooked baby back ribs costs only $18 if you prepay and pick up your order before 12:30 p.m. The cost is $20 for racks that are not prepaid. It is highly recommended to pre-order and to get there early (if you dont preorder) before the ribs are gone! Before smoke-cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. Rotary President Bonnie Clark says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret thats as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe. Youll need to eat the Rotarys baby back ribs to experience the great taste. If you want to place your ribs in the freezer and eat them later, reheating directions are included with your wrapped order. Pre-paid tickets are being sold by members of the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest. The Club meets on Tuesdays at 7:45 a.m. in suite 240 in the Doctors Office Building at the West Marion Community Hospital.

Friday, April 25, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, April 25, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenThose of us who rely on political drama, real or contrived, to justify our professional existence are drooling over the possibility that the next presidential balloting will be a dynasty election. Obviously we have a huge amount of foolishness and outright nastiness to get past between now and then, but what a story it would be if the party nominees are Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, Queen Hil vs. Prince Jeb. Imagine the plot lines: Tudors, Windsors and the Beverly Hillbillies.Instead of a Democratic Convention, that party could have a coronation, assuming Hillary decides she's ready to take the plunge and deal with the life's worth of baggage the Republicans are sure to pile on to her. But from two years out, it looks like the nomination is hers if she wants it. Jeb is a different story. Before he can even try to be Bush the Third, he'll have to fend off the nasties in his own party. He's already gotten a taste of how brutal they can be by daring to express an unhateful view of illegal immigrants: "Yes, they broke the law," he said, "but it's not a felony. It's an act of love. It's an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime, that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn't rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families." If that seemed innocuous to you, that's because you're not in one of those groups that wants to seal the border, or you're not one of the other GOP wannabes, like Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, who want to pander to them. Typical is the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC. Shortly after Bush committed his heresy, ALIPAC President William Gheen fired off a statement: "You could say that prostitutes do what they do out of an act of love for their children and families, or that bank robbers are engaging in an act of love because they're stealing the money not just for themselves but maybe for some of their family members. No one has ever said anything as ridiculous as this before." So Bush is in trouble with the hardliners who seem to control his party's agenda. Even though the Republican leadership insists it is trying to connect with the growing community of Hispanic Americans, who overwhelmingly vote against them, the controlling harsh sentiment within the GOP makes these outreach efforts appear to be nothing more than gloss. But maybe Bush is onto something. He's high on the list of establishment Republicans who are less interested in ideological purity and more in victory. They could rally around Jeb as someone who can appeal to the bulk of moderate Americans who are frightened of the hellfire and brimstone immoderates. Meanwhile, over in the Democratic realm, aka Hillaryland, the question is whether she'll abdicate, and if not, who will be her person in waiting, aka vice-presidential selection. Until then, those of us who are constantly desperate for a narrative are also waiting and dreaming about the 2020 election -the race between George P. Bush and Chelsea Clinton.Bob Franken is a columnist for King Features. For those of us who grew up riding the 42nd Street or Staten Island ferries in New York, its hard to imagine the so-called ferries that keep having accidents in the waters off Asia. The New York ferries carried cars and passengers, few by comparison with the foreign boats, across the river. It was a cheap, stress-free alternative to negotiating the Lincoln or Holland tunnels or the George Washington Bridge, you know, Gov. Christies bridge that his administration shut down to punish a local mayor. Alternatives to getting to Staten Island involved miles of extra driving. To me, those ferries in Asia are major-sized boats, somewhat related to small cruise ships. And, evidently, people are packed in to get from one destination to another. The latest disaster, a ferry off South Korea, shows the lack of safety planning and execution in case of emergency. The captain didnt go down with his ship; in fact, he was one of the first ones off the capsizing boat, and now is under arrest for his actions. In statements eerily similar to the 9-11 scenario at the World Trade Center in New York, the passengers, mostly students, were told to stay where they were for a few crucial minutes instead of trying to get off. You remember that there were announcements at the World Trade Center telling people to stay where they were as they waited for rescue personnel, and thats where they were when the towers collapsed. The agony of the relatives of those on board is apparent as television networks wait for word along with them. The text messages from those stuck on board the sinking ferry, such as the one who said he may never get to tell his parents in person again that he loved them, are gut-wrenching as you realize what these people are going through as they hope for the lives of their children. We see similar grief among the relatives of those apparently lost on the Malaysian plane that has yet to be found after weeks of searching. Yet somehow the ferry disaster is different, partly because we have pictures of the capsized boat, knowing that these young people are trapped inside. For someone like me, whose motto now is If I cant drive, I dont go, its sympathy from afar for those who find these ferries the easiest way to get from one point to another. Ive been emphasizing the ferries in Asia, but there is one thats not too far from home. Years ago, when I was working in Fort Myers Beach, it was suggested that it was easy to spend a day in Key West by taking a passengers-only ferry that ran between the two cities. When you look at a map, you realize how much travel time is saved by going this route. I politely declined, especially knowing I would have to walk or find other transportation to get around Key West. Actually, deep down, that had nothing to do with it. Spending hours on the water with no land in sight was not, for me, a pleasant prospect. But I realize for some, especially those in the area of Southeast Asia and off the coast of Africa, this is an easy way to get from one part of the continent to another. Far too often, though, we read about these disasters. I just hope that there is more concentration on safety issues so we minimize the loss of life on these ferries.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

When they read about places in the country that have battles over immigration status and behavior of foreigners, people tend to think, as they live in their quiet Marion County world, that its nice that it doesnt happen here. When they go to meetings such as the County Commission zoning hearings last week, they realize that such conflicts are not far away. These case was listed innocently enough on the agenda as item C2, 140409SU, Rasem and Nawai Okab, Special Use Permit in A-1, 12.37 acres. It turns out it was for a medical clinic, church building and soccer field for Guadalupana Catholic Mission. Scheduled to be put there shortly is the medical clinic, with the church and soccer field to come later. There is already a small church near the intersection of State Road 40 west and 110th Avenue. Neighbors of the proposed facility, some living in an area called Dorchester Estates, came out to oppose the facility, which is backed by the Rev. Patrick Sheedy, pastor of Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, who spoke at the meeting. The display of anti-Hispanic infiltration was loud and clear. People spoke of living near Little Mexico, and used phrases such as these people, referring to the Hispanics, and phrase generally construed as being racist in nature. One lady complained that she was a Catholic, and couldnt go to the church because it was all in Spanish, and she had to drive 12 miles to go to church. There were some more rational arguments, especially concerning traffic and pedestrian safety. After a little bit of discussion, the commissioners approved the special use to allow the clinic. The Planning and Zoning Commission had recommended denial, but the anonymous staff backed approval. The discussion showed, however, that the national debate about Hispanics being assimilated into America is not to be ignored locally. Coupled with a letter printed in our publications recently concerning speaking English, it shows that right here in Marion County there is, among many people, a general anti-Hispanic feeling that runs deeper than people care to admit. There were some legitimate concerns raised by people about the location of this clinic, but opposition to such a facility simply because the people there speak another language shows a bias that decent people shouldnt accept. It brings us back to a comment from the late Rodney King, victim of a beating years ago in Los Angeles, who asked, Cant we all just get along. Sadly, in Marion County it appears we cant.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY No welcome sign for Hispanic clinic This was not your grandfathers ferry Presidential races look like all in the families READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com LETTER TO THE EDITOR Language abuse and misuseMuch has been written by myself and others of late, regarding the use of what is misinterpreted as Spanish. I personally appreciate the complimentary phone calls and e-mails, as well as the article in the citizen on April 18, about the use of other than English in America. It was alluded to in the article about speaking Spanish here. Well, Spanish is only spoken in Spain, the Canary Islands, or by Spanish people coming to this country, period. There is what is called American Spanish used in the western hemisphere. There are seven separate dialects of American Spanish in Argentina alone. But in the South America, Cuba, and Mexican areas, there are six distinct dialects of American Spanish, that are subdivided by region or country.

In last weeks Citizen, Editor Jim Clark remarked about being the victim of bullys when he was in school. Every one who has ever been the victim of this form of terrorism knows how much pain and suffering it causes. Unfortunately for a few people, being a bully doesnt end with youth. Recently a number of my neighbors and friends have had trees trimmed or removed from their property. Subsequently, they have received letters in their mail boxes accusing them of being Tree murderers. Wow; who would have thought that cutting foliage was a capital crime? It seems that some bullies are out of their tree. Now dont get me wrong; I like trees as much as the next person. They are beautiful to look at; provide shade; give us oxygen to breath and make a great home for birds and squirrels. On the other side of the coin; they grow roots that rip up concrete floors; damage septic tanks; sprinkler systems and other underground facilities. Their branches and leaves clog eaves and down spouts; damage shingles and the limbs or a whole tree occasionally falls on to a house. If the latter is occurring to ones property; dont you think that the prudent thing to do would be remove the tree or trim it? Doesnt a home owner have the right to improve the condition of his or her property without some, how can I put this politely; without some over zealous tree lover accusing them of a crime? There are plenty of trees around; the woods are full of them. There is lots of oxygen to breathe and places for the birds to nest. Shade is available to those who seek it and in spite of houses being built; logs being burned in fire places; furniture being manufactured and hard wood floors being laid; there are still lots of beautiful trees. Intimidation may have worked for bullies when we were in school but after being around the block several times; adults are no longer willing to be influenced by nasty notes or remarks made behind their backs. If you want trees; plant as many as you like in your own yard and no one will say a thing. By the same token, if you keep your nose and opinions out of your neighbors property; life will be much more harmonious for all of us. A word of caution while I am on the subject; be careful when youre raking leaves. My buddy up north broke his leg trying to rake leaves; he fell out of the tree.

Dear Readers, I hope you have enjoyed the Easter weekend. It is fun to see a grandfather/grandmother giving the children a ride in the golf cart. You cant feel anything but pleased when you see their happy faces. I am considering having some space dedicated to news from a resident, not necessarily club news. This past week I have been contacted re: a special anniversary of a longtime resident. It is awesome to hear of anniversaries of 60 years (plus). Let me know if you think it would be of interest. I have a short piece and picture of one of longtime and active couples who celebrated their 60th. This would be a good time to applaud Richard Wolf, Linkside neighborhood for being honored by the Ocala Health with their 2013 First Humanitarian Award. Mr. Wolf has been a volunteer with them since 1988, presently at West Marion Hospital. Oak Run is fortunate to have those residents that go out into the community and volunteer. Thank you Richard. Now to the coming events. LauraOak Run LibraryRecently the Friends of the Oak Run Library held their regular meeting and Karen Hill of the Literacy Council was the speaker. Karen described the workings of the Literacy Council and how they are helping the 19% adult Illiteracy rate in Marion County. In addition to teaching people to read, the Council also trains people in speaking English and citizenship classes. A new challenge for the Council will be preparation for the GED test which will now be exclusively on the computer. This new GED test will require a minimum speed of keyboarding of 20 words per minute, and so the Council will be helping students to not only study for the test but learn how to efficiently operate the computer. Volunteers are always needed for these various types of programs and training is available. At the April meeting, the Board of Directors of the Library recognized the following librarians who have volunteered in the library for 15 years or more. They are: Alice Anderson; Patricia Arnold; Joan Beers; Viola Braman; Barbara Dalton; Gabriella Ethier; Eleanor Henry; Ann Johnson; Mary Koenig; Nancy Lillard; Joanne Misener; Barbara Murphy; Helen Neuendorf; Anne Pelkowski; Elvira Rusconi; Mary Seddon; Carolyn Sokolik; and Marjorie Thomas. Congratulations and a tremendous thank you for all your dedication and hours of work in the library. The Friends of the Oak Run Library hold meetings on the first Friday in February, April, June, October, and December at 1 pm in the Orchid Club Auditorium. You are encouraged to attend to hear the variety of speakers and programs that are scheduled. In addition, there are wonderful treats made by our librarians.Tuesday Classic Line DancingGood news: the very popular Tuesday evening classic line dance classes have been scheduled to be held at the Orchard Club. Effective Tuesday, April 29, they will be dancing on the lovely, highly polished wooden floors. so mark your calendar. Our Snowbird dancer friends have left and other dance classes may take the summer off, but they will continue their dancing schedule. Over the past months, a number of our residents, have requested an Introductory line dance class. Such a class may be introduced into the current Tuesday summer schedule -starting at about 6:15 p.m. Basically the class would be for those who want to learn to line dance or want a basic refresher course. The agenda, would be to learn/review the most popular basic Easy dances, like those done at socials (i.e. Electric Slide, Cupid Shuffle, Mama Marie and Boot Scootin Boggie. etc). However, in order to schedule this class, it is contingent on the amount of interest for that particular time-frame schedule. For those interested in this Introductory line dance class and can fit it in conveniently to their schedule (Tuesday evening 6:15 p.m.), call Nancy and let her know. Do try it for the summer months. We all know that dancing is a perfect exercise for both your body and mind while you enjoy the company of your friends and neighbors. Their motto is ~dance like no one is watching~.60th anniversary celebrationGeorge and Barbara Murphy are all smiles as they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary along with 52 friends and neighbors while on a recent Celebrity Reflection cruise to the Eastern Caribbean. Shirley and Paul Segal of the Preserve celebrated their 60th with family members at a dinner at Stumpknockers. They also want to thank the couple who anonymously paid for their check at Bob Evans. We hear more of these Random Acts of Kindness around the area. Segals wish a God Bless to folks who do these kind acts.Irish American partyIrish American Clubs Spring Roundup is at Palm Grove on Thursday, May 8, 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Royal Oaks will be serving a Barbecue Buffet including Chicken and Pork Ribs, Baked Beans, potato salad, cole slaw, rolls and butter.

PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE10 THE MAIDS VERSION By Daniel WoodrellOnce again, Daniel Woodrell sets his novelso short its almost a novellain his beloved Ozarks. Like its predecessor Winters Bone, it is bleak and penetrating. (The film adaptation of the latter launched actress Jennifer Lawrences career.) In this story the truth behind a tragic dance-hall fire in 1929 has been covered up for years in little West Table, Missouri. Only Alma DeGeer Dunahew, a maid, refuses to be quiet about the explosion that killed 42 people, including Ruby, the sister she adored. Her account takes us back to that night when forty-two dancers from this small corner of the Missouri Ozarks had perished in an instant, waltzing couples murdered midstep, blown toward the clouds in a pink mist chased by towering flames. When the book opens, the narrator, Almas 12-yearold grandson Alek, is spending the summer with her: She frightened me at every dawn the summer I stayed with her. Shed sit on the edge of her bed, long hair down, down to the floor and shaking as she brushed and brushed. Her hair was as long as her story. Still, Alek was a curious even rapt listener, despite his fathers warning that the story was only Almas version. Uneducated, married to a drunk, and trying to feed three hungry boys, Almas life is hardscrabble and just one dropped dish and a loud reprimand from complete and utter poverty. We witness her pathetic triumph when she announces to her sons theres gonna be supper because shed sneaked leftovers from the plates of her employers children. Thus, Almas worldview is grim in contrast to Rubys, the younger sister refusing with sass and vinegar to accept the life doled out to her. Woodrell takes enormous care getting the details exactly right as when he describes Almas house: A floor had been made of roughhewn planks that had been slowly rubbed to haggard softness by clomping boots, wallowing toddlers in flour sack britches, woolen socks sliding, and the brisk sweeps of a cornhusk broom. Heres a story about rich and poor, cruelty and kindness, love and regret in a sharp portrait of rural America during the Great Depression.

Everyone had a fun filled time dancing the afternoon away. It was great doing the old dances and learning new ones.

We are now teaching several of the new dances Ira taught. Our line dance class will continue every Monday from 12:45 to 2:45 p.m. at the H & R Ballroom.

Record low temperatures and incredible snow falls have blanketed much of the northern states. Florida, especially in our area, has had numerous unsteady rises and falls in our temperatures and rainfall totals. We have survived and in many cases thrived in good health and good spirits. Is it not time to share with others where and when we are able? One of the easiest ways to help others is by donating a pint of blood every eight weeks. The Life South Bloodmobile will again be taking donations on Monday, May 5. The Life South bus will be in the front parking lot of OTOWs Health and Recreation Building from 8 a.m. tp 4 p.m. Its easy. and (relatively) quick. And it is good for yourself and for the three other people who will benefit from your donation. Drop by, roll up your sleeve, enjoy a drink and a small snack, let our very competent professionals take your donation, pick up a small gift and a sweet and nutritious treat, then go home knowing you have just helped save three other human beings. Beat winter... be a winner! Following are the names of our 31 fantastic donors from Life Souths March blood drive: George Augur, Shannon Beall, Barbara Belz, Donnamarie Castellano, Esther Cohen, Richard Copeland, Susan Copeland, Robert Cura, Lynn Dowd, Kathleen Dushary, Nancy Frank, Eve Gillespie, Raymond Governatori, John Hegarty, Aaron Hertz, Joseph Hilchey, John King, Lila King, Barbara Kratz, Nancy Ludvik, Kenna Martin, Donna McMurray, Barbara Nastally, James Nottingham, Carol Recknor, Norman Recknor, Harold Rutkowski, Carol Seidman, Hazel Taylor, Paul Wagnitz, Emma Wanamaker.To reach me, please call 237-9208 or e-mail me at jroberta@cfl.rr.com OTOW Happenings June Roberta Jerry and Karen Schneider at the Lions club table with photos and information about the Recycled Trashy Fashion show at the Cultural Center Saturday at 6:30.

After a preliminary round, the six top winners played in a semi-final round robin the next day. Those advancing were Barry Emery, Santo Inserra, Russ Acquard, Joe Huszar, Bill Tetzlaff and Bill Stiles. Several players had the same number of wins so the tie breaker of most points won was used to determine the last couple of semi-finalists. Barry Emery won all his matches during both days so he earned the top spot in the finals. Santo Inserra, Bill Tetzlaff and Russ Acquard joined him for a best of three championship match. The teams were Barry and Santo against Bill and Russ. Barry and Santo were the victors and so earned first place in this years tournament. Special thanks to Sandy Weiler and Dianne Reams for acting as official score keepers, a job they has held for several years. Thanks also to Joe Huszar and Barry Emery for organizing, promoting and providing refreshments. Oak Run has two courts that are used for both pickle ball and pad-rac.

asks on the phone, English or Espanol, theyre just plain dumb. Now, Im going to really throw something at you. We here in America speak American. How about that. Those people in England and only England speak English, and there are eight dialects in England, not counting Cockney, where the H is dropped when speaking. Its also not including Scotland or Ireland or the Ile of Wight. In Canada, they actually speak Canadian, either in English or French. In Australia they speak Australian. Its never referred to as English, heaven forbid. Now English is spoken throughout the world not because of America, but because of England. Now, weve had English, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Portuguese explorers, who took their language to many lands around the world, and those languages are still used in those areas, but all have their own dialects. When referring a particular language such as Spanish, know of what you speak. Lets get back to Spanish. Ive been to Spain a couple times, both inland and on the coast, and its a beautiful country, with wonderful people, and its a crime those people who are not from Spain, misrepresent that country by misrepresenting, how they speak, and claiming its Spanish. Its just plain gibberish. There is much more to be written regarding language around the world, and some are very beautiful, but Im only addressing the one which is abused the most.

Well, neither have I, except for last week. I do not know what was going on last week, all I know is everything went according to plan. My plan, that is. I was on a roll. In a sense, that worries me. I am not accustomed to having my week work out according to my plans. Normally, if I can get 50 percent of my plans accomplished in a week, I am doing pretty good. Last week was one of those weeks, which may never repeat itself ever again, I am sorry to say. Or, am I sorry? In contrast, the week before it was horrendous. This week was different in every respect. I enjoyed this week, particularly the fact that I got all my to-do-list accomplished and by early Friday afternoon, I had nothing to do. Nothing to do! Then a thought wrestled my brain to the mat. What if the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage found out I had finished all my work and had nothing to do? When I thought about this, one thought that was predominant was that it is a good thing when I do NOT finish everything in a week. Then, I have the excuse that I have too much to do to delve into the honey-do-list of which my wife is most famous. I believe this honey-do-list is something mothers pass on to their daughters. It is part of the womens secret society that does not permit any intrusion from the non-female counterpart. It is the reason wives prefer their husbands call them the secret name, Honey. Whenever the husband uses this term of endearment the wife smiles one of those romantic smiles that her husband has no idea what is behind that smile. It has taken me a long time to come to this point of understanding. While, it is very gratifying to get your work for the week done ahead of schedule, it creates an opportunity for the intrusion of that infamous honey-do-list. This list has no end to it. When you accomplish one item on the honey-do-list, three other items appear automatically. It is virtually impossible to finish everything on that list. It is part of the wifes secret society no man can penetrate. Being on such a good roll in any given week is not the grand thing I thought it was. I am now content to have my desk piled high with unfinished work at the end of each week. Since I had a little bit of time on my hands, I read what good old King Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived, thought along these lines. Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest (Ecclesiastes 9:10). If I do not use my time to the best of my ability, the probabilities are pretty high somebody will intrude and use that time for some other use.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att.net. His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com. I am on a roll, so dont rock the boat Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Sometimes we learn life lessons in the strangest ways. Living in Ocala with its diverse population of minorities has opened my eyes to the religion and culture of many of my neighbors. Like most people, the old adage Birds of a feather flock together is true for most of my social situations but the other day I received a lesson from a most unlikely and unexpected source. Since I was all caught up on my columns, I decided to spend a little time pampering myself at the lingerie boutique. For me, a cancer survivor, this is a very important aspect of coping with my diagnosis and so I was looking forward to purchasing items to help me feel sexy and feminine. The sales associate was only too willing to assist me and was delighted to show me all the latest items including their new French-inspired collection. I was really enjoying myself trying on all sorts of bras, each one more beautiful than the other, when I suddenly sat down and looked at straight at the associate and said: After all I have been through, I am just so glad to be alive. This kind of feeling and emotion is very typical of women who have dealt with breast cancer but what came next was most amazing. That sales lady just gave me a big hug and in an accent as broad as her hometown of Atlantic she instructed me: If de Lawd wants you to be here, then you be here! I Just loved that line and it put a lot into perspective for me. Why exactly are we here? How do we make the most of the time we have? The Jewish tradition has much to say on this topic and while most people would agree that God has a plan for us all, Judaism gives us some specifics ideas about this. Traditionally we are here to make the world a better place. Through something we call Tikun Olam, repairing the world, Jews strive to combat social injustice and are in the forefront in environmental and ecological issues. We are also involved with the homeless, the disadvantaged and disenfranchised. Too many times when the world messes itself up, some Jewish scientist comes to the rescue and saves the day. We strive for world peace and devote ourselves to humanitarian causes. From a spiritual point of view, we are commanded to give tzedakah, loosely translated as charity to help those less fortunate than ourselves. The word tzedakah comes from the Hebrew word for righteousness so by helping our fellow neighbors we are following on a righteous path. Tzedakah can take the form of a check to a local charity, or donating goods or time to a worthy organization. The Torah also acts as a specific guide for moral and ethical behavior. The Ten Commandments, the laws of keeping kosher, lighting Shabbat candles and other rituals, observing the Sabbath and other holy days, all seek to create a sense of holiness for the Jewish spirit. Add acts of loving-kindness to the mlange, and you have a recipe for a Torah-centered life. All these mitzvot, commandments, are important Jewish values, which seek to make us more human and better people. They are our raison detre, our reason for being. And so we go about our lives, in my case, writing columns on Judaism and giving service to my synagogue. I give tzedakah and do mitzvot when I can while balancing my role as wife, mother and grandmother. I try to maximize the time I have, however, waiting in phone queues for answers to credit card or bank questions does have a negative effect on my busy day! I hope the Lord wants me around for a long time. I have a lot more columns to write. The question is: What are we doing here?

asks on the phone, English or Espanol, theyre just plain dumb. Now, Im going to really throw something at you. We here in America speak American. How about that. Those people in England and only England speak English, and there are eight dialects in England, not counting Cockney, where the H is dropped when speaking. Its also not including Scotland or Ireland or the Ile of Wight. In Canada, they actually speak Canadian, either in English or French. In Australia they speak Australian. Its never referred to as English, heaven forbid. Now English is spoken throughout the world not because of America, but because of England. Now, weve had English, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Portuguese explorers, who took their language to many lands around the world, and those languages are still used in those areas, but all have their own dialects. When referring a particular language such as Spanish, know of what you speak. Lets get back to Spanish. Ive been to Spain a couple times, both inland and on the coast, and its a beautiful country, with wonderful people, and its a crime those people who are not from Spain, misrepresent that country by misrepresenting, how they speak, and claiming its Spanish. Its just plain gibberish. There is much more to be written regarding language around the world, and some are very beautiful, but Im only addressing the one which is abused the most. Bill Ford Oak RunFriday, April 25, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, April 25, 2014 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in SOUTH MARION Citizen LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Have you ever had one of those weeks where everything went exactly as planned? Well, neither have I, except for last week. I do not know what was going on last week, all I know is everything went according to plan. My plan, that is. I was on a roll. In a sense, that worries me. I am not accustomed to having my week work out according to my plans. Normally, if I can get 50 percent of my plans accomplished in a week, I am doing pretty good. Last week was one of those weeks, which may never repeat itself ever again, I am sorry to say. Or, am I sorry? In contrast, the week before it was horrendous. This week was different in every respect. I enjoyed this week, particularly the fact that I got all my to-do-list accomplished and by early Friday afternoon, I had nothing to do. Nothing to do! Then a thought wrestled my brain to the mat. What if the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage found out I had finished all my work and had nothing to do? When I thought about this, one thought that was predominant was that it is a good thing when I do NOT finish everything in a week. Then, I have the excuse that I have too much to do to delve into the honey-do-list of which my wife is most famous. I believe this honey-do-list is something mothers pass on to their daughters. It is part of the womens secret society that does not permit any intrusion from the non-female counterpart. It is the reason wives prefer their husbands call them the secret name, Honey. Whenever the husband uses this term of endearment the wife smiles one of those romantic smiles that her husband has no idea what is behind that smile. It has taken me a long time to come to this point of understanding. While, it is very gratifying to get your work for the week done ahead of schedule, it creates an opportunity for the intrusion of that infamous honey-do-list. This list has no end to it. When you accomplish one item on the honey-do-list, three other items appear automatically. It is virtually impossible to finish everything on that list. It is part of the wifes secret society no man can penetrate. Being on such a good roll in any given week is not the grand thing I thought it was. I am now content to have my desk piled high with unfinished work at the end of each week. Since I had a little bit of time on my hands, I read what good old King Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived, thought along these lines. Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest (Ecclesiastes 9:10). If I do not use my time to the best of my ability, the probabilities are pretty high somebody will intrude and use that time for some other use.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att.net. His web site is www.jamessnyderministries.com. I am on a roll, so dont rock the boat Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Sometimes we learn life lessons in the strangest ways. Living in Ocala with its diverse population of minorities has opened my eyes to the religion and culture of many of my neighbors. Like most people, the old adage Birds of a feather flock together is true for most of my social situations but the other day I received a lesson from a most unlikely and unexpected source. Since I was all caught up on my columns, I decided to spend a little time pampering myself at the lingerie boutique. For me, a cancer survivor, this is a very important aspect of coping with my diagnosis and so I was looking forward to purchasing items to help me feel sexy and feminine. The sales associate was only too willing to assist me and was delighted to show me all the latest items including their new French-inspired collection. I was really enjoying myself trying on all sorts of bras, each one more beautiful than the other, when I suddenly sat down and looked at straight at the associate and said: After all I have been through, I am just so glad to be alive. This kind of feeling and emotion is very typical of women who have dealt with breast cancer but what came next was most amazing. That sales lady just gave me a big hug and in an accent as broad as her hometown of Atlantic she instructed me: If de Lawd wants you to be here, then you be here! I Just loved that line and it put a lot into perspective for me. Why exactly are we here? How do we make the most of the time we have? The Jewish tradition has much to say on this topic and while most people would agree that God has a plan for us all, Judaism gives us some specifics ideas about this. Traditionally we are here to make the world a better place. Through something we call Tikun Olam, repairing the world, Jews strive to combat social injustice and are in the forefront in environmental and ecological issues. We are also involved with the homeless, the disadvantaged and disenfranchised. Too many times when the world messes itself up, some Jewish scientist comes to the rescue and saves the day. We strive for world peace and devote ourselves to humanitarian causes. From a spiritual point of view, we are commanded to give tzedakah, loosely translated as charity to help those less fortunate than ourselves. The word tzedakah comes from the Hebrew word for righteousness so by helping our fellow neighbors we are following on a righteous path. Tzedakah can take the form of a check to a local charity, or donating goods or time to a worthy organization. The Torah also acts as a specific guide for moral and ethical behavior. The Ten Commandments, the laws of keeping kosher, lighting Shabbat candles and other rituals, observing the Sabbath and other holy days, all seek to create a sense of holiness for the Jewish spirit. Add acts of loving-kindness to the mlange, and you have a recipe for a Torah-centered life. All these mitzvot, commandments, are important Jewish values, which seek to make us more human and better people. They are our raison detre, our reason for being. And so we go about our lives, in my case, writing columns on Judaism and giving service to my synagogue. I give tzedakah and do mitzvot when I can while balancing my role as wife, mother and grandmother. I try to maximize the time I have, however, waiting in phone queues for answers to credit card or bank questions does have a negative effect on my busy day! I hope the Lord wants me around for a long time. I have a lot more columns to write. The question is: What are we doing here?

After a preliminary round, the six top winners played in a semi-final round robin the next day. Those advancing were Barry Emery, Santo Inserra, Russ Acquard, Joe Huszar, Bill Tetzlaff and Bill Stiles. Several players had the same number of wins so the tie breaker of most points won was used to determine the last couple of semi-finalists. Barry Emery won all his matches during both days so he earned the top spot in the finals. Santo Inserra, Bill Tetzlaff and Russ Acquard joined him for a best of three championship match. The teams were Barry and Santo against Bill and Russ. Barry and Santo were the victors and so earned first place in this years tournament.

Record low temperatures and incredible snow falls have blanketed much of the northern states. Florida, especially in our area, has had numerous unsteady rises and falls in our temperatures and rainfall totals. We have survived and in many cases thrived in good health and good spirits. Is it not time to share with others where and when we are able? One of the easiest ways to help others is by donating a pint of blood every eight weeks. The Life South Bloodmobile will again be taking donations on Monday, May 5. The Life South bus will be in the front parking lot of OTOWs Health and Recreation Building from 8 a.m. tp 4 p.m. Its easy. and (relatively) quick. And it is good for yourself and for the three other people who will benefit from your donation. Drop by, roll up your sleeve, enjoy a drink and a small snack, let our very competent professionals take your donation, pick up a small gift and a sweet and nutritious treat, then go home knowing you have just helped save three other human beings. Beat winter... be a winner! Following are the names of our 31 fantastic donors from Life Souths March blood drive: George Augur, Shannon Beall, Barbara Belz, Donnamarie Castellano, Esther Cohen, Richard Copeland, Susan Copeland, Robert Cura, Lynn Dowd, Kathleen Dushary, Nancy Frank, Eve Gillespie, Raymond Governatori, John Hegarty, Aaron Hertz, Joseph Hilchey, John King, Lila King, Barbara Kratz, Nancy Ludvik, Kenna Martin, Donna McMurray, Barbara Nastally, James Nottingham, Carol Recknor, Norman Recknor, Harold Rutkowski, Carol Seidman, Hazel Taylor, Paul Wagnitz, Emma Wanamaker.To reach me, please call 237-9208 or e-mail me at jroberta@cfl.rr.com OTOW Happenings June Roberta Jerry and Karen Schneider at the Lions club table with photos and information about the Recycled Trashy Fashion show at the Cultural Center Saturday at 6:30.

Dear Readers, I hope you have enjoyed the Easter weekend. It is fun to see a grandfather/grandmother giving the children a ride in the golf cart. You cant feel anything but pleased when you see their happy faces. I am considering having some space dedicated to news from a resident, not necessarily club news. This past week I have been contacted re: a special anniversary of a longtime resident. It is awesome to hear of anniversaries of 60 years (plus). Let me know if you think it would be of interest. I have a short piece and picture of one of longtime and active couples who celebrated their 60th. This would be a good time to applaud Richard Wolf, Linkside neighborhood for being honored by the Ocala Health with their 2013 First Humanitarian Award. Mr. Wolf has been a volunteer with them since 1988, presently at West Marion Hospital. Oak Run is fortunate to have those residents that go out into the community and volunteer. Thank you Richard. Now to the coming events. LauraOak Run LibraryRecently the Friends of the Oak Run Library held their regular meeting and Karen Hill of the Literacy Council was the speaker. Karen described the workings of the Literacy Council and how they are helping the 19% adult Illiteracy rate in Marion County. In addition to teaching people to read, the Council also trains people in speaking English and citizenship classes. A new challenge for the Council will be preparation for the GED test which will now be exclusively on the computer. This new GED test will require a minimum speed of keyboarding of 20 words per minute, and so the Council will be helping students to not only study for the test but learn how to efficiently operate the computer. Volunteers are always needed for these various types of programs and training is available. At the April meeting, the Board of Directors of the Library recognized the following librarians who have volunteered in the library for 15 years or more. They are: Alice Anderson; Patricia Arnold; Joan Beers; Viola Braman; Barbara Dalton; Gabriella Ethier; Eleanor Henry; Ann Johnson; Mary Koenig; Nancy Lillard; Joanne Misener; Barbara Murphy; Helen Neuendorf; Anne Pelkowski; Elvira Rusconi; Mary Seddon; Carolyn Sokolik; and Marjorie Thomas. Congratulations and a tremendous thank you for all your dedication and hours of work in the library. The Friends of the Oak Run Library hold meetings on the first Friday in February, April, June, October, and December at 1 pm in the Orchid Club Auditorium. You are encouraged to attend to hear the variety of speakers and programs that are scheduled. In addition, there are wonderful treats made by our librarians.Tuesday Classic Line DancingGood news: the very popular Tuesday evening classic line dance classes have been scheduled to be held at the Orchard Club. Effective Tuesday, April 29, they will be dancing on the lovely, highly polished wooden floors. so mark your calendar. Our Snowbird dancer friends have left and other dance classes may take the summer off, but they will continue their dancing schedule. Over the past months, a number of our residents, have requested an Introductory line dance class. Such a class may be introduced into the current Tuesday summer schedule -starting at about 6:15 p.m. Basically the class would be for those who want to learn to line dance or want a basic refresher course. The agenda, would be to learn/review the most popular basic Easy dances, like those done at socials (i.e. Electric Slide, Cupid Shuffle, Mama Marie and Boot Scootin Boggie. etc). However, in order to schedule this class, it is contingent on the amount of interest for that particular time-frame schedule. For those interested in this Introductory line dance class and can fit it in conveniently to their schedule (Tuesday evening 6:15 p.m.), call Nancy and let her know. Do try it for the summer months. We all know that dancing is a perfect exercise for both your body and mind while you enjoy the company of your friends and neighbors. Their motto is ~dance like no one is watching~.60th anniversary celebrationGeorge and Barbara Murphy are all smiles as they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary along with 52 friends and neighbors while on a recent Celebrity Reflection cruise to the Eastern Caribbean. Shirley and Paul Segal of the Preserve celebrated their 60th with family members at a dinner at Stumpknockers. They also want to thank the couple who anonymously paid for their check at Bob Evans.

PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE10 THE MAIDS VERSION By Daniel WoodrellOnce again, Daniel Woodrell sets his novelso short its almost a novellain his beloved Ozarks. Like its predecessor Winters Bone, it is bleak and penetrating. (The film adaptation of the latter launched actress Jennifer Lawrences career.) In this story the truth behind a tragic dance-hall fire in 1929 has been covered up for years in little West Table, Missouri. Only Alma DeGeer Dunahew, a maid, refuses to be quiet about the explosion that killed 42 people, including Ruby, the sister she adored. Her account takes us back to that night when forty-two dancers from this small corner of the Missouri Ozarks had perished in an instant, waltzing couples murdered midstep, blown toward the clouds in a pink mist chased by towering flames. When the book opens, the narrator, Almas 12-yearold grandson Alek, is spending the summer with her: She frightened me at every dawn the summer I stayed with her. Shed sit on the edge of her bed, long hair down, down to the floor and shaking as she brushed and brushed. Her hair was as long as her story. Still, Alek was a curious even rapt listener, despite his fathers warning that the story was only Almas version. Uneducated, married to a drunk, and trying to feed three hungry boys, Almas life is hardscrabble and just one dropped dish and a loud reprimand from complete and utter poverty. We witness her pathetic triumph when she announces to her sons theres gonna be supper because shed sneaked leftovers from the plates of her employers children. Thus, Almas worldview is grim in contrast to Rubys, the younger sister refusing with sass and vinegar to accept the life doled out to her. Woodrell takes enormous care getting the details exactly right as when he describes Almas house: A floor had been made of roughhewn planks that had been slowly rubbed to haggard softness by clomping boots, wallowing toddlers in flour sack britches, woolen socks sliding, and the brisk sweeps of a cornhusk broom. Heres a story about rich and poor, cruelty and kindness, love and regret in a sharp portrait of rural America during the Great Depression.

Friday, April 25, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, April 25, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenThose of us who rely on political drama, real or contrived, to justify our professional existence are drooling over the possibility that the next presidential balloting will be a dynasty election. Obviously we have a huge amount of foolishness and outright nastiness to get past between now and then, but what a story it would be if the party nominees are Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, Queen Hil vs. Prince Jeb. Imagine the plot lines: Tudors, Windsors and the Beverly Hillbillies.Instead of a Democratic Convention, that party could have a coronation, assuming Hillary decides she's ready to take the plunge and deal with the life's worth of baggage the Republicans are sure to pile on to her. But from two years out, it looks like the nomination is hers if she wants it. Jeb is a different story. Before he can even try to be Bush the Third, he'll have to fend off the nasties in his own party. He's already gotten a taste of how brutal they can be by daring to express an unhateful view of illegal immigrants: "Yes, they broke the law," he said, "but it's not a felony. It's an act of love. It's an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime, that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn't rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families." If that seemed innocuous to you, that's because you're not in one of those groups that wants to seal the border, or you're not one of the other GOP wannabes, like Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, who want to pander to them. Typical is the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC. Shortly after Bush committed his heresy, ALIPAC President William Gheen fired off a statement: "You could say that prostitutes do what they do out of an act of love for their children and families, or that bank robbers are engaging in an act of love because they're stealing the money not just for themselves but maybe for some of their family members. No one has ever said anything as ridiculous as this before." So Bush is in trouble with the hardliners who seem to control his party's agenda. Even though the Republican leadership insists it is trying to connect with the growing community of Hispanic Americans, who overwhelmingly vote against them, the controlling harsh sentiment within the GOP makes these outreach efforts appear to be nothing more than gloss. But maybe Bush is onto something. He's high on the list of establishment Republicans who are less interested in ideological purity and more in victory. They could rally around Jeb as someone who can appeal to the bulk of moderate Americans who are frightened of the hellfire and brimstone immoderates. Meanwhile, over in the Democratic realm, aka Hillaryland, the question is whether she'll abdicate, and if not, who will be her person in waiting, aka vice-presidential selection. Until then, those of us who are constantly desperate for a narrative are also waiting and dreaming about the 2020 election -the race between George P. Bush and Chelsea Clinton.Bob Franken is a columnist for King Features. For those of us who grew up riding the 42nd Street or Staten Island ferries in New York, its hard to imagine the so-called ferries that keep having accidents in the waters off Asia. The New York ferries carried cars and passengers, few by comparison with the foreign boats, across the river. It was a cheap, stress-free alternative to negotiating the Lincoln or Holland tunnels or the George Washington Bridge, you know, Gov. Christies bridge that his administration shut down to punish a local mayor. Alternatives to getting to Staten Island involved miles of extra driving. To me, those ferries in Asia are major-sized boats, somewhat related to small cruise ships. And, evidently, people are packed in to get from one destination to another. The latest disaster, a ferry off South Korea, shows the lack of safety planning and execution in case of emergency. The captain didnt go down with his ship; in fact, he was one of the first ones off the capsizing boat, and now is under arrest for his actions. In statements eerily similar to the 9-11 scenario at the World Trade Center in New York, the passengers, mostly students, were told to stay where they were for a few crucial minutes instead of trying to get off. You remember that there were announcements at the World Trade Center telling people to stay where they were as they waited for rescue personnel, and thats where they were when the towers collapsed. The agony of the relatives of those on board is apparent as television networks wait for word along with them. The text messages from those stuck on board the sinking ferry, such as the one who said he may never get to tell his parents in person again that he loved them, are gut-wrenching as you realize what these people are going through as they hope for the lives of their children. We see similar grief among the relatives of those apparently lost on the Malaysian plane that has yet to be found after weeks of searching. Yet somehow the ferry disaster is different, partly because we have pictures of the capsized boat, knowing that these young people are trapped inside. For someone like me, whose motto now is If I cant drive, I dont go, its sympathy from afar for those who find these ferries the easiest way to get from one point to another. Ive been emphasizing the ferries in Asia, but there is one thats not too far from home. Years ago, when I was working in Fort Myers Beach, it was suggested that it was easy to spend a day in Key West by taking a passengers-only ferry that ran between the two cities. When you look at a map, you realize how much travel time is saved by going this route. I politely declined, especially knowing I would have to walk or find other transportation to get around Key West. Actually, deep down, that had nothing to do with it. Spending hours on the water with no land in sight was not, for me, a pleasant prospect. But I realize for some, especially those in the area of Southeast Asia and off the coast of Africa, this is an easy way to get from one part of the continent to another. Far too often, though, we read about these disasters. I just hope that there is more concentration on safety issues so we minimize the loss of life on these ferries.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

When they read about places in the country that have battles over immigration status and behavior of foreigners, people tend to think, as they live in their quiet Marion County world, that its nice that it doesnt happen here. When they go to meetings such as the County Commission zoning hearings last week, they realize that such conflicts are not far away. These case was listed innocently enough on the agenda as item C2, 140409SU, Rasem and Nawai Okab, Special Use Permit in A-1, 12.37 acres. It turns out it was for a medical clinic, church building and soccer field for Guadalupana Catholic Mission. Scheduled to be put there shortly is the medical clinic, with the church and soccer field to come later. There is already a small church near the intersection of State Road 40 west and 110th Avenue. Neighbors of the proposed facility, some living in an area called Dorchester Estates, came out to oppose the facility, which is backed by the Rev. Patrick Sheedy, pastor of Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, who spoke at the meeting. The display of anti-Hispanic infiltration was loud and clear. People spoke of living near Little Mexico, and used phrases such as these people, referring to the Hispanics, and phrase generally construed as being racist in nature. One lady complained that she was a Catholic, and couldnt go to the church because it was all in Spanish, and she had to drive 12 miles to go to church. There were some more rational arguments, especially concerning traffic and pedestrian safety. After a little bit of discussion, the commissioners approved the special use to allow the clinic. The Planning and Zoning Commission had recommended denial, but the anonymous staff backed approval. The discussion showed, however, that the national debate about Hispanics being assimilated into America is not to be ignored locally. Coupled with a letter printed in our publications recently concerning speaking English, it shows that right here in Marion County there is, among many people, a general anti-Hispanic feeling that runs deeper than people care to admit. There were some legitimate concerns raised by people about the location of this clinic, but opposition to such a facility simply because the people there speak another language shows a bias that decent people shouldnt accept. It brings us back to a comment from the late Rodney King, victim of a beating years ago in Los Angeles, who asked, Cant we all just get along. Sadly, in Marion County it appears we cant.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY No welcome sign for Hispanic clinic This was not your grandfathers ferry Presidential races look like all in the families READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com LETTER TO THE EDITOR Language abuse and misuseMuch has been written by myself and others of late, regarding the use of what is misinterpreted as Spanish. I personally appreciate the complimentary phone calls and e-mails, as well as the article in the citizen on April 18, about the use of other than English in America. It was alluded to in the article about speaking Spanish here. Well, Spanish is only spoken in Spain, the Canary Islands, or by Spanish people coming to this country, period. There is what is called American Spanish used in the western hemisphere. There are seven separate dialects of American Spanish in Argentina alone. But in the South America, Cuba, and Mexican areas, there are six distinct dialects of American Spanish, that are subdivided by region or country.

In last weeks Citizen, Editor Jim Clark remarked about being the victim of bullys when he was in school. Every one who has ever been the victim of this form of terrorism knows how much pain and suffering it causes. Unfortunately for a few people, being a bully doesnt end with youth. Recently a number of my neighbors and friends have had trees trimmed or removed from their property. Subsequently, they have received letters in their mail boxes accusing them of being Tree murderers. Wow; who would have thought that cutting foliage was a capital crime? It seems that some bullies are out of their tree. Now dont get me wrong; I like trees as much as the next person. They are beautiful to look at; provide shade; give us oxygen to breath and make a great home for birds and squirrels. On the other side of the coin; they grow roots that rip up concrete floors; damage septic tanks; sprinkler systems and other underground facilities. Their branches and leaves clog eaves and down spouts; damage shingles and the limbs or a whole tree occasionally falls on to a house. If the latter is occurring to ones property; dont you think that the prudent thing to do would be remove the tree or trim it? Doesnt a home owner have the right to improve the condition of his or her property without some, how can I put this politely; without some over zealous tree lover accusing them of a crime? There are plenty of trees around; the woods are full of them. There is lots of oxygen to breathe and places for the birds to nest. Shade is available to those who seek it and in spite of houses being built; logs being burned in fire places; furniture being manufactured and hard wood floors being laid; there are still lots of beautiful trees. Intimidation may have worked for bullies when we were in school but after being around the block several times; adults are no longer willing to be influenced by nasty notes or remarks made behind their backs. If you want trees; plant as many as you like in your own yard and no one will say a thing. By the same token, if you keep your nose and opinions out of your neighbors property; life will be much more harmonious for all of us. A word of caution while I am on the subject; be careful when youre raking leaves. My buddy up north broke his leg trying to rake leaves; he fell out of the tree.

Mouth-Watering! These were some of the words that were used to describe the fully-cooked baby back ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community during last years rib event. Happily, on Saturday, May 3 (Kentucky Derby Day) starting at 10 a.m., the tent at the Bank of the Ozarks on State Road 200 and SW 99th Street Road, will be back with the purpose of raising funds to allow the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest to support the College of Central Florida Nursing Scholarship Program and other local and international projects. A full rack of smokecooked baby back ribs costs only $18 if you prepay and pick up your order before 12:30 p.m. The cost is $20 for racks that are not prepaid. It is highly recommended to pre-order and to get there early (if you dont preorder) before the ribs are gone! Before smoke-cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. Rotary President Bonnie Clark says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret thats as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe. Youll need to eat the Rotarys baby back ribs to experience the great taste. If you want to place your ribs in the freezer and eat them later, reheating directions are included with your wrapped order. Pre-paid tickets are being sold by members of the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest. The Club meets on Tuesdays at 7:45 a.m. in suite 240 in the Doctors Office Building at the West Marion Community Hospital.

One of the speakers said that crowds already congregate on 110th, and wont get out of the way when drivers come along. Another said there was a man on a three-wheeler, whos drunk, who drives on the road. One man said his property is adjacent to a soccer field already in the neighborhood and finds debris and garbage all over the place. These people dont care, a lady from the area said. Im Catholic and I cant go to this church because its all in Spanish. I have to drive 12 miles to find an English church. She also referenced the existing field and other fields that are not too far away. We dont need a third soccer field, she said. Commissioner Stan McClain made the motion to approve the facility. Quite frankly, they are here to stay, and we need to reach out. CLINICCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 AUTHORSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Today is National Arbor Day, a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for trees. Some states celebrate their own holiday where the date varies, depending on climate and the suitable planting season. Here in Florida it is celebrated on the third Friday in January. Ive been rooting around and have gone out on a limb for some stories for today.Mooed musicA man had an ox that sang wordless songs so beautiful they brought tears to his eyes. The ox stood under his favorite tree, and sang. The man told his neighbors, and they came to hear the ox, but the critter wouldnt sing unless they paid the man. When they did, the ox serenaded them for an hour. People came from all over to hear the ox, and pretty soon the man so rich that he spent $50,000 building a special house for it. But even with all that money spent, the bovines house looked, well, quite ordinary. It was, after all, a hum bull home.Seat of learningI have a very distasteful job, complained the genealogist. I have been employed by Mrs. Richey to look up her family tree, and it will be my unpleasant duty to inform her that one of her ancestors was electrocuted at Sing Sing. Why worry about that? Just tell her the man occupied the chair of applied electricity at one of our public institutions.Fly awayR. Boles was an amazing man. Every day, he would climb a palm tree and fly it to work. Word got to the military about his abilities. They brought him to the base to see if his capabilities might be used. The man was worried because he could see no palm trees. But nobody would listen. They told him, All trees are the same. They brought him to the general, who wanted him to demonstrate what he could do. He said, But sir, this is an elm tree. But the general snarled back, Trees is trees, right? Now get in that tree, and fly. The man climbed the tree and tried to fly it. He tried and tried again, but the tree wooden even budge. The general got impatient. Whats the matter, son? Cant you fly trees? Sir, thats what Ive been trying to tell everyone. Im a palm pilot.Dividing Souls On the outskirts of town, there was a big old pecan tree by the cemetery fence. One day two boys filled up a bucket with pecans and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts. One for you, and one for me. One for you, one for me, said one boy. Several were dropped and rolled down toward the fence. Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He stopped and heard, One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me. Oh my, he shuddered, Its Satan and the Lord dividing the souls at the cemetery. When an old man with a cane hobbled along, the boy said, Come here quick. You wont believe what I just heard. Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up souls. The man said, Beat it, kid, cant you see its hard for me to walk? When the boy insisted, the man hobbled to the cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me The old man whispered, Boy, you, youve been telling the truth! Lets see the devil himself. Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, but were still unable to see anything. At last they heard, One for you, one for me and one last one for you. Thats all. Now lets go get those two nuts by the fence, and well be done. They say the old guy made it back to town 5 minutes before the boy.

Island Trail What are Hearing Aid Channels and Bands? Two of the most important characteristics of hearing aids are Channels and Bands which are also some of the most misunderstood by users. To start off with, the number of channels or bands has nothing to do with the number of programs or volume settings. Sounds are processed and amplified by a hearing aid based on frequencies (or the pitch of a sound) and volumes. A peek at your audiogram will tell you how much amplification you need for any given frequency. In a nutshell, bands and channels thus determine how granular a hearing aid can process and amplify the sounds it perceives. To quote a great explanation from Philips: A band is what is used to control volume in different frequencies. This allows us to adjust more volume in a specific area of your hearing loss without effecting other areas where you might need less volume The more bands the hearing aid offers the more room we have to fit the aid to your hearing loss. Channels break up the frequency range into individual channels. This allows the hearing aid to differentiate noise from speech. The more channels the hearing aid has the more fine tuned it can be. For instance the sound of keys falling on a table, or water running in the sink may be overwhelming. When your hearing aid offers many channels we can adjust each frequency that is too loud without sacrificing the things you want to hear, like your spouse or boss. Thus, just the way a high-resolution picture gives you a sharper image, more bands and channels provide you with a more granular sound quality. More channels will provide better resolution on the frequencies and more bands will mean better resolution on the volume thus allowing your hearing aid to match your audiogram more accurately. 000HV3L OCALA EAST 352-861-2275 3405 SW College Rd., Ste. 207 Colours Plaza, next to Red Lobster LARGO 727-531-7500 3690 East Bay Drive PALM HARBOR 727-781-8100 34838 US Hwy. 19 N., Ste. 34838 SIEMENS 101 SIEMENS 3MI SIEMENS 5MI SIEMENS 7MI 000HY7X

Man, 86, loses $$ in fraud BY JIM CLARK EditorThe Marion County Sheriffs Office is investigating an apparent case of financial fraud, with an 86-year-old On Top of the World resident as the victim. According to the report, the victim wrote nine checks totaling more than $70,000 to people possibly associated with a cleaning service that does his house. His son in California became alarmed when his father called and said he and his wife needed money to pay their household bills and buy groceries. The son checked with the bank and found there was little money in an account that he says should have had more than $100,000. The son flew to Ocala to help his parents go to the Sheriffs Office. Deputies have three names of possible suspects, and the investigation is continuing. BY JIM CLARK EditorIgnoring the action by the Planning and Zoning Commission and the anti-Hispanic statements from neighbors, the Marion County Commission approved a project for a clinic, church and soccer field in the northwest area. The location is just north of State Road 40 on Northwest 110th Avenue, across the street from a development called Dorchester Estates. The clinic will take shape first, with the church and soccer field to come later. The Rev. Patrick Sheedy, pastor of Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, spoke in favor of the project, called Guadalupana Catholic Mission. He said there is already a small church at the intersection of 40 and 110th, but that a larger facility was needed. He said the clinic would probably operate only one day a week to start. There is a shopping center at the corner of the two roads, and some suggested that it would be better if the clinic were put into existing storefronts at this location. Many of those who would use this clinic would be non-drivers, Disputed clinic gets zoning OK PLEASESEECLINIC, PAGE3 BY CAROL JONES Special to the CitizenFreedom Public Librarys newest program, the Coffee Club, features Sharon Colvin and Terri Borkgren who will talk about their books on Monday, April 28, at 10:30 a.m. Stop in for a cup of coffee and meet them. These two sisters put their separate talents together and dreamed up the Whispering Key Mystery series. Terri took various writing courses in college and Sharon wrote and produced TV commercials for an NBC affiliate. Both loved reading mysteries and enjoyed writing, so what would you expect? Of course, a mysteries series. Ideas for the first book started percolating during a visit from their younger sister. While touring the area, brainstorming happened involving a tour bus visiting different Florida locations where murders inevitably occurred. The What Ifs created two sister characters who had to solve the crimes, and the Whispering Key Mysteries were born. Sharon and Terri and their families relocated to Florida from central Illinois for health reasons and warm weather, Librarys Coffee Club features mystery authors PHOTO BY RON RATNERLaw Enforcement Torch RunLaw enforcement personnel take off on Pine Avenue on the annual Torch Run.
