Upon request, placement specialists will distribute Tobacco Free Florida information and materials and will be able to make referrals to a wealth of free resources, including cessation classes, nicotine patches and/or gum. CareerSource to help job applicants kick the habit The Lets Shake on It partnership involves all 24 of Floridas workforce development region.

In the meantime, Skinner emphasized that job seekers participation in the Tobacco Free Florida program is voluntary and not required to receive placement services. Our involvement in the Tobacco Free Florida initiative is to assist those who want to quit so that their tobacco habit doesnt stand in the way of meeting their career goals. Four public high schools in Marion County are nationally ranked this year by the Washington Post and US News & World Report. The national rankings, issued earlier this month, consider numerous factors independently of each other. The Washington Posts Most Challenging High Schools listing ranks Belleview High at #323 (up from 525 last year) and Vanguard High at #878 (down from 584 last year). This years prestigious list ranks 2,110 high schools nationwide. Just nine percent of approximately 22,000 US high schools made the final cut. Meantime, two other schools earned Bronze status on this years US News & World Report rankings Lake Weir High and West Port High schools. Both were also on last years list. This publication considered 31,242 schools nationwide; only 4,707 medaled, including 162 in Florida. Lake Weir and West Port are among Floridas 81 Bronze-medal recipients. Two years ago, the Washington Post revamped its rating formula and now ranks schools based on the number of college-level exams given each year -including International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP), and Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) -divided by the number of graduating seniors that year. The latest rankings are based on 2013 numbers. US News & World Report national and state rankings consider three factors performance of all students on state standards testing, performance of least-advantaged students on state standards testing, and college-readiness. Four high schools earn national rankings Chief Executive Officer Rich Mutarelli has announced the appointment of Phil A. Wright II as the new Chief Operating Officer for Munroe Regional Medical Center.

I am excited to become a part of the outstanding organization at Munroe Regional, said Wright.

R otary plans rib saleScrumptious! Delicious! Succulent! 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 smoke-cooked 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.

This hour Pat Wellington mainly talked about dreams. Cayce could interpret dreams. A dream about shoes or feet what one is attempting to do. Nightmare change your diet. Dreams are about you. Consider how you feel after the dream. Pat passed around a paper with instructions on how to make and use a Castor Oil Pack. If youd rather buy than make one, the website is baar.com It has been used through out the ages as a natural therapy. Castor oil applied externally in the form of packs is very popular with natural health practitioners. The Edgar Cayce Readings inform us that castor oil packs are to be used to improve assimilations, eliminations and circulation; especially of the lymphatic system.

Marion County Commissioner Stan McClain, Sierra Club activist Whitey Markle and Williston attorney Beth Gordon will discuss this issue when the May 9 Friday Forum of Marion County explores the environmental and property rights ramifications of the pipeline planned to run from Alabama through Georgia and western Marion County south to Osceola County. Invitations have also been extended to State Senator Charlie Dean and Dunnellon Mayor Nathan Whitt. Barbara Schwartz, secretary of the Silver Springs Alliance, will moderate. According to the April 26 Georgia Moultrie Observer the EPA, after citizen comment, has raised questions about potential threats to water, land, air and wildlife with the Federal Energy Regulation Commission which is ultimately responsible for deciding the route of the pipeline The EPA also recommended that Florida Power & Light, the end user, consider alternative methods of serving customers. These include conservation, alternative energy sources and importing liquified natural gas from Mississippi. Electricity sales peaked in 2007 with increased use of more efficient light bulbs appliances and buildings, perhaps even obviating the need for an additional pipeline. The nonpartisan speaker/ luncheon group gathers on the second Friday of each month at 11:30 a.m. at Buffet City, State Road 200 at MLK Jr. Blvd. in Ocala. The $10 charge, payable directly to the restaurant, includes the buffet, tax, tip and a drink.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 2, 2014 Just to be clear, I may have been wrong. Of course, thats nothing new for a political commentator, although usually we dont have to admit we were mistaken. I have been among the herd-followers who have argued that Obamacare might do in the Democrats chances in this years elections for control of the Senate, with Republicans wasting no chance whatsoever to tarnish their opponents with the Affordable Care Act. Now, however, Im beginning to waver (another privilege that goes with this job). There are some indications that the GOP and its mega-rich supporters may be overplaying their one-card hand. No, this vacillation is not prompted by the news that the administrations Affordable Care Act participation projections have been exceeded, with 8 million sign-ups so far, including a respectable chunk of those highvalue low-age enrollees. Nor is it influenced at all by President Barack Obamas declaration that, This thing might be working. Thank you for sharing, Mr. President, but your opinion is not affecting mine. Instead, there are some glimmers out there that might shed some new light on appropriate strategies for this years campaigning. The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that one-third of the online respondents say they favor the Democrats approach to health care, versus 18 percent who prefer the Republicans. Thats an increase for the White House and a down figure for the GOP Of course, 40 percent of those participating had no earthly idea which party had which plan, which is a bummer, but it shows a slight upward trend for the Dems. In February, Obamacare approval was at 25 percent. If that momentum continues, it could mean that people are starting to get weary of the Republicans incessant hammering on the subject. In the House, theyve passed more than 50 bills that would repeal or sabotage health-care reform, and maybe its time to cool their jets. Couple that with the barrage of TV ads already flooding us from well-financed conservative groups trashing Democrats for having anything to do with Obamacare, and maybe, just maybe, a growing number of voters are wondering whether the GOP will stop long enough to reveal a credible alternative. Dont hold your breath. Added to the mix is the reality that some of the reforms are widely popular. So the president and his people are trying to shore up some enthusiasm for playing offense instead of defense. Their argument is that while the rollout was a well-documented disaster, repairs have been made and the new health system is starting to gain traction. That may be premature, but its food for thought for candidates in his party who were abandoning what they perceived to be Obamas sinking ship. Instead of saying, Health-care plan? What health-care plan? they suddenly might recall, Oh yeah, that health-care plan. As for the Republicans, there is no shortage of controversies, so they can have plenty of other issues with which to scorch the midterm election earth between now and November. Now I have contended both that health care means the Democrats are in deep trouble and also that perhaps theyre not. Its ideal: Whatever the outcome, Ill be correct and can brag about it. (c) 2014 Bob Franken Distributed by King Features Synd. There were a couple of stories coming out of the Sheriffs Office last week that, frankly, made me both sad and mad to read. They both involved swindles and/or theft from senior citizens. The second one was the old secret shopper scam. Someone gets chosen to be a secret shopper and receives a money order. Theyre told to deposit the money order in their bank, buy money cards and send the numbers of the money cards by e-mail to someone, who then cashes out the money cards, before the victims bank notifies them that the money order was fraudulent. In this case, the 66-year-old woman from Southwest Ocala was taken for $992. But by the time I got to the second story, the first one already had me boiling. In this one, someone who had access to the 86-year-old victims checks wrote checks for more than $70,000, draining the mans bank account. This theft came to light when the mans son, who lives in California, got a call from his dad saying he needed money to pay for groceries. The son knew that there should have been plenty of money in the account, and did some checking. He finally flew out to the Southwest Ocala mans home and took him to the Sheriffs substation to file a complaint. So once again we have to issue warnings, and if you take nothing else away from reading our newspaper, please, please pay attention. First, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The secret shopper scam has been around forever. It seems like easy money, but the only thing easy about it is how easy your bank account can get wiped out. Dont be looking for a quick buck from promotions like these. Whatever you do, never pay money to get something you didnt ask for. Along the same lines, remember that you cant win a sweepstakes or a foreign lottery if you didnt enter it. If you get notification that you have won, tear it up and throw it away. Chances are that somewhere down the road theyll want you to send some money for taxes or some other thing, and youll never see the prize. Second, be careful who you let into your house. If you must hire someone to clean, go through reputable agencies, preferably those who advertise in the newspaper. Dont answer individual classified ads, whether in the newspaper or online. Theres no guarantee that the people advertising in this manner are legitimate. If you do let someone in to do handyman work or cleaning, make sure you know where they are every minute. It only takes a moment for a trained thief to grab your checkbook most crooks know where to find them, no matter how well you try to hide them. Make sure you keep them far away from where you store your jewelry, too. Taking items and pawning them is a quick buck for the thieves. And if you have elderly parents, please be vigilant when it comes to their finances. It may not be easy, but get their permission to constantly monitor how they spend their money. Save yourself and your relatives some grief by being alert and not getting taken in by the crooks. Theyre everywhere out there dont help them out.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Chances are, a week ago, there are many of you who didnt know the name Donald Sterling, or that he was the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association. Probably even fewer of you knew who V. Stiviano was. But a picture of Stiviano with Magic Johnson on Instagram and the subsequent rant, allegedly by Sterling, has set off a firestorm of reaction across the country, and not just in sports circles. Stiviano is Sterlings girlfriend, and the two had a telephone conversation that was somehow recorded in which Sterling allegedly tells her not to bring African American guests to Clippers games and not to post pictures of her with African Americans. According to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, the process of authenticating the phone call is complete, and Sterling admitted it is his voice. At a press conference on Tuesday, Silver banned Sterling from the NBA for life. He also said he will ask the other owners to force Sterling to sell the team, a power that Silver evidently does not have. You have to ask, however, about the background of the recording. Is it legal in California to tape a phone conversation if one of the parties doesnt know its being recorded? Was Sterling deliberately being goaded into making incriminating statements? It sure sounds that way when you listen to the entire conversation. Who released it? Stiviano says she didnt. She, by the way, is being sued by Sterlings estranged wife because of gifts she received. The Clippers rebounded nicely from a defeat on Sunday to win Game 5 on Tuesday night, putting them only one win away from taking the series. The big question now, however, is what will Sterling do? The vote to oust him seems to be a foregone conclusion, and may have been completed by the time you read this. Sterling, however, is a lawyer known for litigating anything and everything. He has even refused to pay coaches he fired even though they had years left on their contracts. The possibility of transferring ownership to his estranged wife has been raised. Can he do that? Does the league have the right to ban his whole family, when he is the only one accused of wrongdoing. This case, obviously, isnt over. The basketball world waits to see what Sterling will do next. Theres only one thing that will make this go away and thats a big For Sale sign on the outside of Clippers offices. Help the young manWere aware that some readers only read the news that interests them, particularly when it comes to the items from the various communities. However, this week, we refer you to the Cherrywood column, particularly the last segment titled From Your Reporter. It chronicles the movement to get enough votes for a paralyzed young man so he can get a new van to increase his mobility. It seems like a good cause, and it wont cost you anything, so please refer to that column and follow the directions. You can help a young man in need of better transportation.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

For our 2014 Spring concert, Matthew Bumbach, MCC Conductor and Director of Vocal Studies, College of Central Florida, presents Wolfgang Amadeus Mozarts Coronation Mass and Aaron Coplands Old American Songs, with guest soloists and pianist Ricky Hendrix. The Civic Chorales concert balances the sacred music of the classical era with the light hearted beauty of traditional American songs. Mozart wrote the Mass in C major (1779) simply as a short Ordinary of the mass; it later acquired its Coronation title when it was performed at the 1791 coronation of Leopold II, King of Bohemia. Coplands Old American Songs, originally set for solo voices, maintains its fun nature in this re-orchestration for choir. The local performance will be Sunday, May 11, at Countryside Presbyterian Church, 7768 State Road 200, at 3 p.m. Other performances are Friday, May 9, at 7 p.m. at St. George Anglican Cathedral and Saturday, May10, at 3 p.m. at First United Methodist Church.Monday, May 12 Retired nurses to meetThe Citrus Marion Chapter of Registered Nurses Retired (RNR) will meet on May 12 at West Marion Medical Bldg. in Ocala.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com For a very brief time last week I was under the impression I was all caught up. Dont you like the feeling that comes knowing you are up to date and everything is accomplished? I do, I just do not experience it enough. It was entirely my own fault. I was gloating over the fact I had accomplished everything on my to-do-list and had some time to spare. Spare time is a rare commodity these days, at least for me. I do not even have spare change and it has been months since I have seen my spare tire. Time is a different matter altogether. Just when I think I have a little spare time on my hands, I find it slipping through my fingers. As I said, I was gloating over the fact I was all caught up. Being in a rather cheerful mood, I thought I would look at my calendar. I do not look at my calendar that often. It is so depressing, always telling me what to do. I hate it when somebody tells me what to do. My calendar looks at me and I look back and it simply says, do this. And there it is in black and white. What else can I do? Without actually thinking the issue through carefully, I opened up my calendar and discovered something quite startling. It takes a whole lot to startle me. In fact, it takes a whole lot just to get me started on anything. However, I looked at my calendar and was woefully startled. I noticed on my calendar it was the month of May. What happened to March and April? In fact, what happened to January and February? I should have gotten a hint with all the rain we had in April. Remember that little line that goes, April showers bring May flowers? While I was focused on the showers in April, I did not notice that April was exhausting itself and May was sneaking around the corner to surprise me. Boy, did it surprise me. I guess I was just too occupied during the month of April to realize that April has a time limit. April has 30 days and when those 30 days are kaput, April is over and it is May. I do not think May is any different from any other month. It is just that I wish the months would slow down a little bit. It seems at the beginning of the month everything is going rather slowly and then when you hit the middle of the month the days must go into some kind of panic and race towards the end. Why these days of the month have to hasten towards the remainder of the month is something I will never wrap my head around. If I were a swearing man, I would swear it was still February. I believe there ought to be a month, at least one month in the year, where there are like And very suddenly, the calendar has turned to May 75 to 80 days. Why be so legalistic about all of this? Why be so judgmental? Every day of the month insists it will only be around for 24 hours. Not 25 hours. Not even 20 hours. But every day insists on being around for 24 hours and then it disappears. Now, where does it go? When I go on a vacation, I know where I am going and the sad part of my vacation is at the end of the vacation I come back. Now where does time go? And, why doesnt it ever return. For instance. I am thinking of celebrating my 37th birthday this year. I am not 37 years old, but I cannot remember what I did on my 37th birthday. I think that if I cannot remember what happened on my 37th birthday, I should be able to repeat it. Why cant I go back and be 37 for just one day? I do not need to be 37 forever, just one day! But no, Father Time has made a rule that you can only be 37 one day out of the year and you can never repeat that, ever again. Of course, there was Jack Benny who was 39 all his life. I noticed in my calendar there were many items that needed doing. As I looked at them, I realized I had done them the month before. Some things are so insistent that you do them every month. My electric bill, for instance. Why do I have to pay that every month? Why cant the electric company give me a vacation once a year? Another thing that bothers me. When I am having a good time at whatever I am doing, why does time pass so quickly? I remember in school the time leading up to recess went ever so slow and I never thought it would arrive. Once I got out to recess, it went so quickly I had to return to class almost before I left the classroom. What is that all about? I took a little bit of time to think about what good old King Solomon said about the subject. To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Time is a commodity either you spend it or lose it. The bad part is once you lose it you can never get it back. Enjoy today, its the only today you have.Rev. James L.

Events at VFW Post 4781 May Is International Internal Audit Awareness Month, a time to promote the internal audit profession to all audit customers and others in the business community. Perhaps its the time to get ready for an IRS audit that some of us may have to experience. To me, theres no accounting for Pun Alley stories that look at auditors and accountants.Cant hideThe CEO and CFO were perplexed. They thought they had hidden all of the unusual transactions for the past year and were sure that the auditors would never discover their fraudulent practices. On the last day of the audit, one of the audit staff that the CEO and CFO did not recognize came in with all of the transactions that the devious pair had covered up. Obviously they were shaken. Finally the CFO said, How did the audit firm discover these transactions? Without batting an eye the man said, Audit firm? Im with the NSA.JumpyAn auditor was crossing a road when a frog called out to him and said, If you kiss me, Ill turn into a beautiful princess. He picked up the frog and put it in his pocket. The frog spoke up again and said, If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week. The auditor ignored the frog. Then the frog cried out, If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, Ill stay with you and do anything you want. The auditor took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and put it back. Finally, the frog asked, What is the matter? Ive told you Im a beautiful princess that will stay with you and do anything you want. Why wont you kiss me? The auditor said, Look Im an auditor. I dont have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now thats cool.Sleep on itAn accountant was having a hard time sleeping and went to see his doctor. Doctor, I just cant get to sleep at night. Have you tried counting sheep? Thats the problem. I make a mistake and then spend three hours trying to find itShort To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the accountant, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be. A private detective was hired to find a company accountant, and asked, Is he tall or short? The boss answered, Both! The cannibal audit practice charged an arm and a leg. An accountant is someone who solves a problem you didnt know you had in a way you dont understand. The Form 1040 means that for every $50 you earn, you get $40, the IRS gets $10. The accountant just went into business with Ford. They make the cars; he makes the license plates. Homeless accountants live in a tax shelter. The company accountant is shy and retiring. Hes shy a quarter of a million dollars. Thats why hes retiring. Old accountants never die. They just lose their balance. Income Tax Auditor: Mrs. Fredericks, whats your husbands average income? Mrs. Fredericks: Oh, about midnight.It adds upA businessman was interviewing applicants for the position of Divisional Manager. He devised a simple test to select the most suitable person for the job. He asked each applicant the question, What is two and two? The first interviewee was a journalist. His answer was twenty-two. The second applicant was an engineer. He pulled out a calculator and showed the answer to be between 3.999999 and 4.000001. The next person was a lawyer. He stated that in the case of Jenkins v. Commer of Stamp Duties, two and two was proven to be four. The last applicant was an accountant. The businessman asked him, How much is two and two? The accountant got up from his chair, went over to the door, closed it then came back and sat down. He leaned across the desk and said in a low voice, How much do you want it to be?NSA again?The clerk walks into the bosss office and said, The auditors have just left, sir. Have they finished checking the books? asked the boss. Very thoroughly, was the reply. Well, what did they say, said the boss. They want 15 percent to keep quiet.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Ioften comment to my husband how complicated our lives are living in the present age. Today you have to be somewhat of a computer genius as you wend your way through the supermarket with your smart phone downloading facts and recipes and picking up your deli order you ordered on line. A laser device scans your items at the check out and everybody uses reusable shopping totes for purchases. Todays supermarket carries all sorts of items from ethnic foods to mops and soaps, produce, bakery, dairy, meat, canned goods and everything in between. Super these places are but growing up as a young Jewish girl in New Britain, CT in the early s, things were a lot different. Our local Jewish shopping districts main street was called Hartford Avenue. Even back in the early s, the once central area of Jewish settlement was going into decay. As in many urban areas in the Northeast, the black population was moving in, as the Jews were moving out. Nevertheless, there were still stores frequented by Jewish shoppers in the days before the supermarket. My favorite was Cherniaks deli. Step into this store with its wooden floors and dusty shelves of canned goods hardly anyone bought because the main attraction here were the kosher sliced luncheon meats. We always seemed to hit this place at 5 p.m., close enough to dinnertime that the mere aroma of salami would make my mouth water. Mr. Cherniak would always offer me a slice, which I would eat greedily while my eyes would wander over to the big barrels of half sour pickles. A pickle for a nickel I used to quip and on occasion I would be rewarded with one of the garlicky delights. My mother would also purchase hot dogs with their casings intact, coleslaw and whole smoked whitefish. Across the street was the kosher butcher shop. It still remember the black and white tiled floor and white interior. Bachrachs was a very clean store and all the meats were neatly displayed in glass display cases. My favorites were the lamb chops, the kind that had the whole chop plus an end piece, a cut I have not seen in probably fifty years. Nothing prepackaged here and everything was cut and slaughtered according to Jewish ritual. I tried not to think about the back room where I knew they hung the forequarters of beef on meat hooks above the sawdust strewed wooden floor. Even with this information, I still enjoyed hamburgers and steaks. A few blocks down was the kosher bakery, Cousins. Here my mother would buy challah for Shabbat and rye bread for the deli. You could get a loaf of the chewy stuff for 25 cents. They were also famous for their bagels. I remember the bakery clerk giving my baby sister one to chew on as we made our bakery selections. What made a Jewish bakery unique was that no lard was used in baking. Today, health conscious shoppers prefer all-vegetable shortening but back in the s, it was harder to find places and products that featured kosher shortening. We always left the shop with a half dozen of my favorite donuts, plain with a chocolate stripe on top, filled with buttercream. Not exactly a healthy choice but they sure were good! Our last stop was Marty Sidoyians produce shop. Marty was not Jewish but Armenian and catered to a Jewish crowd. Of course everything was sold in bulk from wooden baskets much like you see at the wayside produce stands here in Florida. Unlike today when eating a variety of foods from different cultures is a way of life, back in the s it was not so popular to cross ethnic boundaries. I often wanted my mother to buy okra but she said that was something black people ate and I never tasted it until I was well into adulthood. There were other vegetables more indigenous to the South and what we would now call soul food since the greengrocer also sold to the black population who were rapidly moving into the area. Still, if I could have a sweet red pepper or two I was content. Things have certainly changed in the years I have described. The world is older, faster and more impersonal. Still I wouldnt trade my modern supermarket for the time consuming store hopping method my mother used to patronize. Nor would I have put my baby sister in a car seat unsecured by a seatbelt as we did in those days riding back from our shopping trips. But those were the times we lived in, nostalgic to be sure, but not necessarily better. Still the past has a powerful hold on us. When news leaked recently that an iconic Connecticut Jewish supermarket was in financial trouble, a few Jewish philanthropists stepped forward and bought the store to keep the tradition going with plans to modernize and improve the stores wares for todays Jewish consumer. Just like Judaism itself, always evolving, the traditions live on in new ways and in new packaging but the taste is still the same, perhaps even better.

Southwest Christian Church is a traditional worshiping church. Our worship service includes the beloved old-time Gospel Hymns together with some of todays contemporary choruses. We preach and teach strictly from Gods Word. We believe the entire Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God given to us by God through His chosen writers, to enable us to know Him and to understand how to live our lives in the way He requires, so that we might be pleasing and acPLEASESEERELIGION, PAGE11 OLIVE KITTERIDGE By Elizabeth Strout Pulitzer-prize winning Olive Kitteridge, a novel in stories, centers on a retired schoolteacher who deplores the changes in the world at large but fails to recognize the changes in those around her in her little town of Crosby, Maine. Linking these 13 rich, luminous stories is largerthan-life Olive, who is thoroughly unlikeable when the novel opens but soon grows on the reader. Chronologically the stories make us aware of a woman growing old, the range of her memory playing over the terrain traversed. Although usually dismissive of her fellow townspeople, dubbing them flub-dub, and hellion, and moron, she slowly comes to appreciate their merits. In Basket Full of Trips, storekeeper Marlene learns of her husbands infidelity after he dies but still finds his obsession with trips he would never take heartbreaking. Olive seems to see her for the first time when she says, An innocent, Olive thinks, gazing at the woman. A real one. You dont find them anymore. Boy, you dont. In Tulips, the woman Olive had labeled a rich snob emerges as an admirable match for the strongwilled protagonist. Louise Larkin knows Olive likes hearing of other peoples problems, and she has recently had her share. Still, she calls Olive on her disingenuous sympathy visit:You came here for a nice dose of schadenfreude, and it didnt work. Story by story the scales fall from Olives eyes. She has squandered the years with her saintly late husband Henry, she has misunderstood her son, misjudged her neighbors, and deceived herself. But even if the novels subjects are discontent, waste, betrayal, sorrow, and fear, the voice at the close is composed, chastened, rueful, and ironic. There is finally a note of confirmation. And for readers theres a happy ending of sorts when the crusty math teacher finds contentment where she least expected it. Highly recommended.

Erica worked to gather the first books and set up procedures for the library. Erica has continued to work as a librarian all these years and should be commended for her hard work and diligence. With summer coming and snowbirds leaving and others vacationing and visiting families, the library is in need of more volunteers. Please ask the librarian at the desk for an application form and you will be asked to come in after library hours for training. Then, you will be assigned to work with two librarians. After this training is completed, you will go on our sub list for the day captains to call you to work. If you want a regular schedule, please mention it to your trainer and she will put you on that list. A regular librarian works a shift of 9 12; 12 3; or 3 5 every other week so it isnt too much of your time. For those of you traveling this summer, remember paperback books can be signed out without any return date. So, if you will be gone for 3 or 4 weeks, you can take as many as 10 paperbacks with you. Or, you can purchase used books at our book sale on May 10 at the donut drop in. Paperbacks are just ten cents and hard back books are just a dollar.Reach outReach Out is the volunteer group of neighbors helping neighbors. We presently offer help in minor home repairs, computer and TV hookups, replacing light bulbs in ceiling fixtures or lamp posts. There is no charge, but donations will be accepted and passed on to charities in this area. Also available is transportation to medical appointments.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com There were several down and outers for the first Hobo Dance at Cherrywood. These well dressed vagabonds wore their finest duds complete with patches on their britches and hats with holes. Everyone had a great time and it looks like this will be a returning annual event. The Activities Team under the leadership of Eve Houghtaling cooked up a special Hobo Stew to be served as the main course. The meat was tender and delicious and gobbled up by everyone. The veggies were a great addition to the meal also; adding flavor, color and even nutrition. All of the guests brought their own dish to use for the meal and varying from military mess kits to tin cans. It was fun to see the imaginations of our hobo residents at work. Our own Richard Becotte provided the music for this party putting everyone in a good mood and getting them up dancing. At their request, our line dancers got in several tunes that allowed them to show their steps. To watch the large group on the floor dancing in perfect unison was quite a sight. Donna Moran, won best costume and Pia Dean won one of the 50/50 raffle prizes that were awarded adding some more fun and excitement to the evening. Next year we expect an even larger turn out for this very informal and fun dance.Dont miss Derby DayExcitement is building for our Derby Day celebration scheduled for this Saturday, May 3. The clubhouse doors open at 5 p.m. and admission is free to all Cherrywood residents; no tickets needed. You wont want to miss seeing the race on our big screen as you root for your favorite horse or jockey. Ladies decorate your bonnets and put them into the hat contest. Judges will decide who has the most beautiful or original hat and prizes will be awarded. Last year the competition was really tough so dont spare the horses in your decorations. While youre at this festive event sample a mint julep or other libation that is befitting of the race. A few of those traditional cocktails and youll be in the mood to run the race yourself. If youd prefer to have a different drink: feel free to bring your own. Immediately following the big race, our clubhouse gets transformed into a paddock for our own horses. These wooden cut-outs of race horses are all numbered and decorated with different colors. Hobos swarm at the Cherrywood clubhouse Some of the hobos at the Cherrywood clubhouse. PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 Cherrywood John Everlove See Geri to get your free tickets and plan on a very fun and entertaining evening.Memorial DayYour Veterans Club will be hosting its annual Memorial Day celebration on Friday, May 30 at 11 a.m. While the rest of the country moved Memorial Day to the last Monday of May; your Veterans Club has opted to celebrate the original Memorial Day each May 30. This solemn service honors the memories of those who died in defense of our nation from the Revolutionary War right through to the War on Terror. It is a day of remembering those who have fallen in service to their country and honoring their sacrifice. In addition, we honor the families of those who died. Their loss and suffering is shared by all grateful Americans. Join our Color Guard; our Veterans Club Officers; widows; volunteers and special guest speaker as we pay tribute to those who have given their all for us. Immediately following the service, an All American lunch will be served in the clubhouse. Our menu includes hamburgers and hot dogs cooked on the grill with beans and other side dishes. You are welcome to bring your own beverage or enjoy the iced tea and lemonade that will be available. Music will be played by Rich Becotte so you can party; dance and enjoy the life that has been given to us by our fallen heroes. We owe it to them to remember and to share good times with friends and loved ones. Our Memorial Day service is open to everyone for no charge. Lunch tickets are just $7 per person with all proceeds going to the Cherrywood Veterans Club. See Geri or any Veterans Club Officer for your tickets.From your reporterOn behalf of myself and the OHern family, I would like to express my sincere thanks to all of you who have been helping Freds grandson Jacob. Several weeks ago I shared Jacobs story with you but let me refresh your memory and introduce him to new readers. Two years ago Jacob OHern was going to enlist in the Armed Forces. Tragically, he was involved in an auto accident and suffered a fractured spine. The injury made this strong healthy young person into a quadriplegic literally over night. Mobility Awareness is an organization that assists people suffering like Jacob by providing their families with a specially equipped van to transport them to doctors appointments and daily treatments. Because there are many people in need, each year the Mobility Awareness CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 group conducts a campaign to receive votes for deserving individuals. Because he is so young and because his father is the sole care giver for Jacob; you can imagine the hardship they both have to face. Mentally and emotionally strong, these two; Jacob and his Dad, have faced each challenge with courage and resolve. You, our readers, have gotten Jacob to within a few thousand votes of making the cut off for consideration to receive this badly needed van. Now we need you to put him over the top. Go on your computer and enter; http://www.mobilityawarenessmonth.co m/local-heroes/. Once you are on that sight press Vote_Now for Jacob OHern. Jacob lives in Pavo, Georgia. You will be given a password and that will enable you to vote every day until the contest expires. This sounds much more difficult than it truly is. Spending an extra minute a day on your computer could make a huge difference in the life of Jacob and his family. I know I can count on our residents and my readers outside of the Cherrywood community to have the compassion and care to do this. Every vote counts. I thank you so very much for your help.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com 000I3AG Italian Restaurant & Pizza Italian Restaurant & Pizza (352) 861-2828 A Taste of Brooklyn in Ocala JASMINE SQUARE 6106 SW State Rd. 200 MONDAY SPECIAL TUESDAY SPECIAL Spaghetti & Meatballs $6.99 Large Cheese Pizza $7.50 At the starting gate, these steeds are lined up with a jockey to help move them along the track. Each racer takes turns throwing a giant dice and moves his/her horse that many spaces on the track. You can imagine how much fun this is as favorites fall behind and dark horses pull to the front. The only thing we can be sure of in this contest is that a mudder has no advantage. There will be contests; 50/50 drawings; fun and excitement for everyone. Bring your refreshments; bring your friends; bring your family but for sure; bring yourself. This is a wonderful event for fellowship and friendship; dont miss it. Remember tickets are not required.Move Night feature Last VegasOn the first Tuesday night of each month at 7, the clubhouse becomes a movie theater for our residents. This months date is May 6 when our featured movie will be Last Vegas starring Michael Douglas; Robert DeNiro; Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline. Join these four men as they head for Las Vegas, Nevada, for a bachelor party to celebrate the marriage of the last single person in the group. While they try to party hearty they find that the years have crept up and nature isnt kind. You can imagine the trouble these four can get into in sin city. The action and situations are hilarious and will have you rolling in the aisles. Fortunately for us what happened in Las Vegas didnt stay in Last Vegas. Comfortable pool side chairs are available; pop corn and lemonade are free to all guests and the atmosphere is comfortable in our climate controlled clubhouse. Join your neighbors for this free evening of top rated entertainment. You are welcome to bring your own candy; refreshments and drinks so there is no reason to not come out and join us. Line Dancing schedule changeDont panic; its only for the first Tuesday of the month. There will be no line dancing class on Tuesday, May 6, because of Movie Night at Cherrywood. Instead, the class will be meeting on Wednesday, May 7 at 7 p.m. Each month on the first Tuesday we show a movie in the clubhouse so line dancing has to be moved to Wednesday. This monthly change allows our dancers to meet every week to learn and practice their moves. Cher Mason is a great teacher showing concern for all of her students and patience too. At 7 the beginners get her full attention to learn terms and steps. At 7:30 the advanced or experienced dancers join in to learn something new. Many of the advanced dancers join the beginners to keep up to speed with the class and they are welcome to take part. Dancing is very beneficial to your health. Not only does it give your body a work out but learning the steps involved keeps your mind sharp as well. We are fortunate to have an instructor of the caliber of Cher who shares her knowledge and enthusiasm with our students. Classes are free thanks to Chris and Mario Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management. Take advantage of these fun classes and dont forget to bring your bottle of water.Shred your documentsHelp prevent identity theft by shredding all of your unwanted personal documents. On Friday, May 9, Enviro-shred will be at our clubhouse to assist you in securing your private information. Between the hours of 1 and 3 p.m., you can bring your papers to the clubhouse and watch as they are shredded by this professional and efficient company. There is a nominal fee for each box of paper work they destroy but it is well worth the money. Many people dont realize that when they throw something into the trash, it becomes fair game for anyone who wants to sift through the bags and obtain private information. That is just one of the ways identities are stolen. We urge you not to throw papers out that contain your credit card info; social security number; name; age; bank info; address etc. Contact Geri for further information about safely getting rid of your old files. Veterans Club Golf TournamentDont forget that Saturday, June 7, is the date set aside for our Veterans Club first Golf Open at beautiful Ocala Palms Golf and Country Club. Golfers will start with a hearty pancake breakfast. After that they will move onto the course for 18 holes of exciting golf with cart. Following the game, everyone will go to the hole number 19 for a delicious luncheon. As if that were not enough, we will hold a silent auction; prizes will be awarded for closest to the hole; hole in one; and best scores etc. Each golfer will receive a gift packet with some valuable items just prior to the start of the game and a courtesy cart will make the rounds with liquid refreshments for our players. Be part of the fun as you enjoy the challenging and beautiful Ocala Palms course. Sand traps and water hazards protect the perfectly manicured greens and tightly trimmed fairways giving golfers of every level of expertise a chance to perfect their game. All of this can be yours for a $50 donation per player. Dont miss out on this spectacular golfing event. Remember, our tournament is open to both men and women but there are limited spaces available. Gather your foursome; threesome; twosome or just sign up yourself by calling Rich Hurley at 873-7208 or John Everlove at 509-4428 to reserve your place. The Veterans Club of Cherrywood is a tax exempt 501 C organization that uses their funds to support Patriot Dog Project; Ritz House for Homeless Veterans; Support our Soldiers; Fisher House; Wounded Warrior; Special Operations and many other Veterans charities.Golf Sponsorships available For the past several weeks your Veterans Club has been asking for businesses; organizations and individuals to CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 More of the hobos at the Cherrywood clubhouse.

Dr. Deb will be the instructor and everyone who knows her is aware of what a great teacher she is. Get your bathing suits on and join her at 11:30 a.m. in our beautiful pool for a low impact work out. Water Aerobics is a great way to keep your body in good condition and to tone your muscles.

These gatherings are free to our residents and offer some top notch entertainment; fun activities and excellent food. Our first in this years line up of festivals is June 9 starting at 5 p.m. This event is Hawaiian themed and geared to the relaxed ambiance of the islands. Our star entertainers will be the very talented and beloved Dawn and Steve Hendrickson playing their steel drums. They have been here before and impressed everyone so much that theyve been invited back. What could be better to put us in an island frame of mind than the music of this duet? If you need more to entice you, how about an entre of succulent and juicy pulled pork complimented with yams and a delicious tropical fruit salad. This is a menu for a perfect Luau meal. Island casual is the dress code for this fun party so get out your muumuu; grass skirt or Hawaii flowery shirt and join in the fun. Rumor has it that there will be some Hula dancers performing also.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com 000I3AG Italian Restaurant & Pizza Italian Restaurant & Pizza (352) 861-2828 A Taste of Brooklyn in Ocala JASMINE SQUARE 6106 SW State Rd. 200 MONDAY SPECIAL TUESDAY SPECIAL Spaghetti & Meatballs $6.99 Large Cheese Pizza $7.50 At the starting gate, these steeds are lined up with a jockey to help move them along the track. Each racer takes turns throwing a giant dice and moves his/her horse that many spaces on the track. You can imagine how much fun this is as favorites fall behind and dark horses pull to the front. The only thing we can be sure of in this contest is that a mudder has no advantage. There will be contests; 50/50 drawings; fun and excitement for everyone. Bring your refreshments; bring your friends; bring your family but for sure; bring yourself. This is a wonderful event for fellowship and friendship; dont miss it. Remember tickets are not required.Move Night feature Last VegasOn the first Tuesday night of each month at 7, the clubhouse becomes a movie theater for our residents. This months date is May 6 when our featured movie will be Last Vegas starring Michael Douglas; Robert DeNiro; Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline. Join these four men as they head for Las Vegas, Nevada, for a bachelor party to celebrate the marriage of the last single person in the group. While they try to party hearty they find that the years have crept up and nature isnt kind. You can imagine the trouble these four can get into in sin city. The action and situations are hilarious and will have you rolling in the aisles. Fortunately for us what happened in Las Vegas didnt stay in Last Vegas. Comfortable pool side chairs are available; pop corn and lemonade are free to all guests and the atmosphere is comfortable in our climate controlled clubhouse. Join your neighbors for this free evening of top rated entertainment. You are welcome to bring your own candy; refreshments and drinks so there is no reason to not come out and join us. Line Dancing schedule changeDont panic; its only for the first Tuesday of the month. There will be no line dancing class on Tuesday, May 6, because of Movie Night at Cherrywood. Instead, the class will be meeting on Wednesday, May 7 at 7 p.m. Each month on the first Tuesday we show a movie in the clubhouse so line dancing has to be moved to Wednesday. This monthly change allows our dancers to meet every week to learn and practice their moves. Cher Mason is a great teacher showing concern for all of her students and patience too. At 7 the beginners get her full attention to learn terms and steps. At 7:30 the advanced or experienced dancers join in to learn something new. Many of the advanced dancers join the beginners to keep up to speed with the class and they are welcome to take part. Dancing is very beneficial to your health. Not only does it give your body a work out but learning the steps involved keeps your mind sharp as well. We are fortunate to have an instructor of the caliber of Cher who shares her knowledge and enthusiasm with our students. Classes are free thanks to Chris and Mario Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management. Take advantage of these fun classes and dont forget to bring your bottle of water.Shred your documentsHelp prevent identity theft by shredding all of your unwanted personal documents. On Friday, May 9, Enviro-shred will be at our clubhouse to assist you in securing your private information. Between the hours of 1 and 3 p.m., you can bring your papers to the clubhouse and watch as they are shredded by this professional and efficient company. There is a nominal fee for each box of paper work they destroy but it is well worth the money. Many people dont realize that when they throw something into the trash, it becomes fair game for anyone who wants to sift through the bags and obtain private information. That is just one of the ways identities are stolen. We urge you not to throw papers out that contain your credit card info; social security number; name; age; bank info; address etc. Contact Geri for further information about safely getting rid of your old files. Veterans Club Golf TournamentDont forget that Saturday, June 7, is the date set aside for our Veterans Club first Golf Open at beautiful Ocala Palms Golf and Country Club. Golfers will start with a hearty pancake breakfast. After that they will move onto the course for 18 holes of exciting golf with cart. Following the game, everyone will go to the hole number 19 for a delicious luncheon. As if that were not enough, we will hold a silent auction; prizes will be awarded for closest to the hole; hole in one; and best scores etc. Each golfer will receive a gift packet with some valuable items just prior to the start of the game and a courtesy cart will make the rounds with liquid refreshments for our players. Be part of the fun as you enjoy the challenging and beautiful Ocala Palms course. Sand traps and water hazards protect the perfectly manicured greens and tightly trimmed fairways giving golfers of every level of expertise a chance to perfect their game. All of this can be yours for a $50 donation per player. Dont miss out on this spectacular golfing event. Remember, our tournament is open to both men and women but there are limited spaces available. Gather your foursome; threesome; twosome or just sign up yourself by calling Rich Hurley at 873-7208 or John Everlove at 509-4428 to reserve your place.

Our first in this years line up of festivals is June 9 starting at 5 p.m. This event is Hawaiian themed and geared to the relaxed ambiance of the islands. Our star entertainers will be the very talented and beloved Dawn and Steve Hendrickson playing their steel drums. They have been here before and impressed everyone so much that theyve been invited back. What could be better to put us in an island frame of mind than the music of this duet? If you need more to entice you, how about an entre of succulent and juicy pulled pork complimented with yams and a delicious tropical fruit salad. This is a menu for a perfect Luau meal. Island casual is the dress code for this fun party so get out your muumuu; grass skirt or Hawaii flowery shirt and join in the fun. Rumor has it that there will be some Hula dancers performing also.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com There were several down and outers for the first Hobo Dance at Cherrywood. These well dressed vagabonds wore their finest duds complete with patches on their britches and hats with holes. Everyone had a great time and it looks like this will be a returning annual event. The Activities Team under the leadership of Eve Houghtaling cooked up a special Hobo Stew to be served as the main course. The meat was tender and delicious and gobbled up by everyone. The veggies were a great addition to the meal also; adding flavor, color and even nutrition. All of the guests brought their own dish to use for the meal and varying from military mess kits to tin cans. It was fun to see the imaginations of our hobo residents at work. Our own Richard Becotte provided the music for this party putting everyone in a good mood and getting them up dancing. At their request, our line dancers got in several tunes that allowed them to show their steps. To watch the large group on the floor dancing in perfect unison was quite a sight. Donna Moran, won best costume and Pia Dean won one of the 50/50 raffle prizes that were awarded adding some more fun and excitement to the evening. Next year we expect an even larger turn out for this very informal and fun dance.Dont miss Derby DayExcitement is building for our Derby Day celebration scheduled for this Saturday, May 3. The clubhouse doors open at 5 p.m. and admission is free to all Cherrywood residents; no tickets needed. You wont want to miss seeing the race on our big screen as you root for your favorite horse or jockey. Ladies decorate your bonnets and put them into the hat contest. Judges will decide who has the most beautiful or original hat and prizes will be awarded. Last year the competition was really tough so dont spare the horses in your decorations. While youre at this festive event sample a mint julep or other libation that is befitting of the race. A few of those traditional cocktails and youll be in the mood to run the race yourself. If youd prefer to have a different drink: feel free to bring your own. Immediately following the big race, our clubhouse gets transformed into a paddock for our own horses. These wooden cut-outs of race horses are all numbered and decorated with different colors. Hobos swarm at the Cherrywood clubhouse Some of the hobos at the Cherrywood clubhouse. PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 Cherrywood John Everlove See Geri to get your free tickets and plan on a very fun and entertaining evening.Memorial DayYour Veterans Club will be hosting its annual Memorial Day celebration on Friday, May 30 at 11 a.m. While the rest of the country moved Memorial Day to the last Monday of May; your Veterans Club has opted to celebrate the original Memorial Day each May 30. This solemn service honors the memories of those who died in defense of our nation from the Revolutionary War right through to the War on Terror. It is a day of remembering those who have fallen in service to their country and honoring their sacrifice. In addition, we honor the families of those who died. Their loss and suffering is shared by all grateful Americans. Join our Color Guard; our Veterans Club Officers; widows; volunteers and special guest speaker as we pay tribute to those who have given their all for us. Immediately following the service, an All American lunch will be served in the clubhouse. Our menu includes hamburgers and hot dogs cooked on the grill with beans and other side dishes. You are welcome to bring your own beverage or enjoy the iced tea and lemonade that will be available. Music will be played by Rich Becotte so you can party; dance and enjoy the life that has been given to us by our fallen heroes. We owe it to them to remember and to share good times with friends and loved ones. Our Memorial Day service is open to everyone for no charge. Lunch tickets are just $7 per person with all proceeds going to the Cherrywood Veterans Club. See Geri or any Veterans Club Officer for your tickets.From your reporterOn behalf of myself and the OHern family, I would like to express my sincere thanks to all of you who have been helping Freds grandson Jacob. Several weeks ago I shared Jacobs story with you but let me refresh your memory and introduce him to new readers. Two years ago Jacob OHern was going to enlist in the Armed Forces. Tragically, he was involved in an auto accident and suffered a fractured spine. The injury made this strong healthy young person into a quadriplegic literally over night. Mobility Awareness is an organization that assists people suffering like Jacob by providing their families with a specially equipped van to transport them to doctors appointments and daily treatments. Because there are many people in need, each year the Mobility Awareness CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 group conducts a campaign to receive votes for deserving individuals. Because he is so young and because his father is the sole care giver for Jacob; you can imagine the hardship they both have to face. Mentally and emotionally strong, these two; Jacob and his Dad, have faced each challenge with courage and resolve. You, our readers, have gotten Jacob to within a few thousand votes of making the cut off for consideration to receive this badly needed van. Now we need you to put him over the top. Go on your computer and enter; http://www.mobilityawarenessmonth.co m/local-heroes/. Once you are on that sight press Vote_Now for Jacob OHern. Jacob lives in Pavo, Georgia. You will be given a password and that will enable you to vote every day until the contest expires. This sounds much more difficult than it truly is. Spending an extra minute a day on your computer could make a huge difference in the life of Jacob and his family. I know I can count on our residents and my readers outside of the Cherrywood community to have the compassion and care to do this. Every vote counts. I thank you so very much for your help.

Erica worked to gather the first books and set up procedures for the library. Erica has continued to work as a librarian all these years and should be commended for her hard work and diligence. With summer coming and snowbirds leaving and others vacationing and visiting families, the library is in need of more volunteers. Please ask the librarian at the desk for an application form and you will be asked to come in after library hours for training. Then, you will be assigned to work with two librarians. After this training is completed, you will go on our sub list for the day captains to call you to work. If you want a regular schedule, please mention it to your trainer and she will put you on that list. A regular librarian works a shift of 9 12; 12 3; or 3 5 every other week so it isnt too much of your time. For those of you traveling this summer, remember paperback books can be signed out without any return date. So, if you will be gone for 3 or 4 weeks, you can take as many as 10 paperbacks with you. Or, you can purchase used books at our book sale on May 10 at the donut drop in. Paperbacks are just ten cents and hard back books are just a dollar.Reach outReach Out is the volunteer group of neighbors helping neighbors. We presently offer help in minor home repairs, computer and TV hookups, replacing light bulbs in ceiling fixtures or lamp posts. There is no charge, but donations will be accepted and passed on to charities in this area. Also available is transportation to medical appointments. For more information of if interested in volunteering, please call Dan Blevins at 433-4338.Well that is it for this week. Keep being kind and smiling.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Ioften comment to my husband how complicated our lives are living in the present age. Today you have to be somewhat of a computer genius as you wend your way through the supermarket with your smart phone downloading facts and recipes and picking up your deli order you ordered on line. A laser device scans your items at the check out and everybody uses reusable shopping totes for purchases. Todays supermarket carries all sorts of items from ethnic foods to mops and soaps, produce, bakery, dairy, meat, canned goods and everything in between. Super these places are but growing up as a young Jewish girl in New Britain, CT in the early s, things were a lot different. Our local Jewish shopping districts main street was called Hartford Avenue. Even back in the early s, the once central area of Jewish settlement was going into decay. As in many urban areas in the Northeast, the black population was moving in, as the Jews were moving out. Nevertheless, there were still stores frequented by Jewish shoppers in the days before the supermarket. My favorite was Cherniaks deli. Step into this store with its wooden floors and dusty shelves of canned goods hardly anyone bought because the main attraction here were the kosher sliced luncheon meats. We always seemed to hit this place at 5 p.m., close enough to dinnertime that the mere aroma of salami would make my mouth water. Mr. Cherniak would always offer me a slice, which I would eat greedily while my eyes would wander over to the big barrels of half sour pickles. A pickle for a nickel I used to quip and on occasion I would be rewarded with one of the garlicky delights. My mother would also purchase hot dogs with their casings intact, coleslaw and whole smoked whitefish. Across the street was the kosher butcher shop. It still remember the black and white tiled floor and white interior. Bachrachs was a very clean store and all the meats were neatly displayed in glass display cases. My favorites were the lamb chops, the kind that had the whole chop plus an end piece, a cut I have not seen in probably fifty years. Nothing prepackaged here and everything was cut and slaughtered according to Jewish ritual. I tried not to think about the back room where I knew they hung the forequarters of beef on meat hooks above the sawdust strewed wooden floor. Even with this information, I still enjoyed hamburgers and steaks. A few blocks down was the kosher bakery, Cousins. Here my mother would buy challah for Shabbat and rye bread for the deli. You could get a loaf of the chewy stuff for 25 cents. They were also famous for their bagels. I remember the bakery clerk giving my baby sister one to chew on as we made our bakery selections. What made a Jewish bakery unique was that no lard was used in baking. Today, health conscious shoppers prefer all-vegetable shortening but back in the s, it was harder to find places and products that featured kosher shortening. We always left the shop with a half dozen of my favorite donuts, plain with a chocolate stripe on top, filled with buttercream. Not exactly a healthy choice but they sure were good! Our last stop was Marty Sidoyians produce shop. Marty was not Jewish but Armenian and catered to a Jewish crowd. Of course everything was sold in bulk from wooden baskets much like you see at the wayside produce stands here in Florida. Unlike today when eating a variety of foods from different cultures is a way of life, back in the s it was not so popular to cross ethnic boundaries. I often wanted my mother to buy okra but she said that was something black people ate and I never tasted it until I was well into adulthood. There were other vegetables more indigenous to the South and what we would now call soul food since the greengrocer also sold to the black population who were rapidly moving into the area. Still, if I could have a sweet red pepper or two I was content. Things have certainly changed in the years I have described. The world is older, faster and more impersonal. Still I wouldnt trade my modern supermarket for the time consuming store hopping method my mother used to patronize. Nor would I have put my baby sister in a car seat unsecured by a seatbelt as we did in those days riding back from our shopping trips. But those were the times we lived in, nostalgic to be sure, but not necessarily better. Still the past has a powerful hold on us. When news leaked recently that an iconic Connecticut Jewish supermarket was in financial trouble, a few Jewish philanthropists stepped forward and bought the store to keep the tradition going with plans to modernize and improve the stores wares for todays Jewish consumer. Just like Judaism itself, always evolving, the traditions live on in new ways and in new packaging but the taste is still the same, perhaps even better.

And for those whose mothers are still living, let us show them how much we love them and appreciate all that they do for us. May every church be filled with loving mothers together with their children. Friday, May 16: The Southwest Christian Church youth group, Kids For Christ (KFC), will hold a special monthly Youth Night featuring indoor and outdoor games and all the Ice Cream you can eat together with other kinds of goodies.

Monday, May 26: Memorial Day. Let us all take time to remember all those who gave their lives in defending the freedoms which we enjoy in our country. Many of our own dear family members, relatives, and friends have been taken from us in the many wars and other battles in which we have been engaged not just for our own freedoms but for the freedoms of other countries as well. Let us give thanks to God for all those who have given so much and for such a loving God who watches over us and meets our every need!!!

Linking these 13 rich, luminous stories is largerthan-life Olive, who is thoroughly unlikeable when the novel opens but soon grows on the reader. Chronologically the stories make us aware of a woman growing old, the range of her memory playing over the terrain traversed. Although usually dismissive of her fellow townspeople, dubbing them flub-dub, and hellion, and moron, she slowly comes to appreciate their merits. In Basket Full of Trips, storekeeper Marlene learns of her husbands infidelity after he dies but still finds his obsession with trips he would never take heartbreaking. Olive seems to see her for the first time when she says, An innocent, Olive thinks, gazing at the woman. A real one. You dont find them anymore. Boy, you dont. In Tulips, the woman Olive had labeled a rich snob emerges as an admirable match for the strongwilled protagonist. Louise Larkin knows Olive likes hearing of other peoples problems, and she has recently had her share. Still, she calls Olive on her disingenuous sympathy visit:You came here for a nice dose of schadenfreude, and it didnt work. Story by story the scales fall from Olives eyes. She has squandered the years with her saintly late husband Henry, she has misunderstood her son, misjudged her neighbors, and deceived herself. But even if the novels subjects are discontent, waste, betrayal, sorrow, and fear, the voice at the close is composed, chastened, rueful, and ironic. There is finally a note of confirmation. And for readers theres a happy ending of sorts when the crusty math teacher finds contentment where she least expected it. Highly recommended.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com For a very brief time last week I was under the impression I was all caught up. Dont you like the feeling that comes knowing you are up to date and everything is accomplished? I do, I just do not experience it enough. It was entirely my own fault. I was gloating over the fact I had accomplished everything on my to-do-list and had some time to spare. Spare time is a rare commodity these days, at least for me. I do not even have spare change and it has been months since I have seen my spare tire. Time is a different matter altogether. Just when I think I have a little spare time on my hands, I find it slipping through my fingers. As I said, I was gloating over the fact I was all caught up. Being in a rather cheerful mood, I thought I would look at my calendar. I do not look at my calendar that often. It is so depressing, always telling me what to do. I hate it when somebody tells me what to do. My calendar looks at me and I look back and it simply says, do this. And there it is in black and white. What else can I do? Without actually thinking the issue through carefully, I opened up my calendar and discovered something quite startling. It takes a whole lot to startle me. In fact, it takes a whole lot just to get me started on anything. However, I looked at my calendar and was woefully startled. I noticed on my calendar it was the month of May. What happened to March and April? In fact, what happened to January and February? I should have gotten a hint with all the rain we had in April. Remember that little line that goes, April showers bring May flowers? While I was focused on the showers in April, I did not notice that April was exhausting itself and May was sneaking around the corner to surprise me. Boy, did it surprise me. I guess I was just too occupied during the month of April to realize that April has a time limit. April has 30 days and when those 30 days are kaput, April is over and it is May. I do not think May is any different from any other month. It is just that I wish the months would slow down a little bit. It seems at the beginning of the month everything is going rather slowly and then when you hit the middle of the month the days must go into some kind of panic and race towards the end. Why these days of the month have to hasten towards the remainder of the month is something I will never wrap my head around. If I were a swearing man, I would swear it was still February. I believe there ought to be a month, at least one month in the year, where there are like And very suddenly, the calendar has turned to May 75 to 80 days. Why be so legalistic about all of this? Why be so judgmental? Every day of the month insists it will only be around for 24 hours. Not 25 hours. Not even 20 hours. But every day insists on being around for 24 hours and then it disappears. Now, where does it go? When I go on a vacation, I know where I am going and the sad part of my vacation is at the end of the vacation I come back. Now where does time go? And, why doesnt it ever return. For instance. I am thinking of celebrating my 37th birthday this year. I am not 37 years old, but I cannot remember what I did on my 37th birthday. I think that if I cannot remember what happened on my 37th birthday, I should be able to repeat it. Why cant I go back and be 37 for just one day? I do not need to be 37 forever, just one day! But no, Father Time has made a rule that you can only be 37 one day out of the year and you can never repeat that, ever again. Of course, there was Jack Benny who was 39 all his life. I noticed in my calendar there were many items that needed doing. As I looked at them, I realized I had done them the month before. Some things are so insistent that you do them every month. My electric bill, for instance. Why do I have to pay that every month? Why cant the electric company give me a vacation once a year? Another thing that bothers me. When I am having a good time at whatever I am doing, why does time pass so quickly? I remember in school the time leading up to recess went ever so slow and I never thought it would arrive. Once I got out to recess, it went so quickly I had to return to class almost before I left the classroom. What is that all about? I took a little bit of time to think about what good old King Solomon said about the subject. To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Time is a commodity either you spend it or lose it. The bad part is once you lose it you can never get it back. Enjoy today, its the only today you have.Rev. James L.

Events at VFW Post 4781 May Is International Internal Audit Awareness Month, a time to promote the internal audit profession to all audit customers and others in the business community. Perhaps its the time to get ready for an IRS audit that some of us may have to experience. To me, theres no accounting for Pun Alley stories that look at auditors and accountants.Cant hideThe CEO and CFO were perplexed. They thought they had hidden all of the unusual transactions for the past year and were sure that the auditors would never discover their fraudulent practices. On the last day of the audit, one of the audit staff that the CEO and CFO did not recognize came in with all of the transactions that the devious pair had covered up. Obviously they were shaken. Finally the CFO said, How did the audit firm discover these transactions? Without batting an eye the man said, Audit firm? Im with the NSA.JumpyAn auditor was crossing a road when a frog called out to him and said, If you kiss me, Ill turn into a beautiful princess. He picked up the frog and put it in his pocket. The frog spoke up again and said, If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week. The auditor ignored the frog. Then the frog cried out, If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, Ill stay with you and do anything you want. The auditor took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and put it back. Finally, the frog asked, What is the matter? Ive told you Im a beautiful princess that will stay with you and do anything you want. Why wont you kiss me? The auditor said, Look Im an auditor. I dont have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now thats cool.Sleep on itAn accountant was having a hard time sleeping and went to see his doctor. Doctor, I just cant get to sleep at night. Have you tried counting sheep? Thats the problem. I make a mistake and then spend three hours trying to find itShort To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the accountant, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be. A private detective was hired to find a company accountant, and asked, Is he tall or short? The boss answered, Both! The cannibal audit practice charged an arm and a leg. An accountant is someone who solves a problem you didnt know you had in a way you dont understand. The Form 1040 means that for every $50 you earn, you get $40, the IRS gets $10. The accountant just went into business with Ford. They make the cars; he makes the license plates. Homeless accountants live in a tax shelter. The company accountant is shy and retiring. Hes shy a quarter of a million dollars. Thats why hes retiring. Old accountants never die. They just lose their balance. Income Tax Auditor: Mrs. Fredericks, whats your husbands average income? Mrs. Fredericks: Oh, about midnight.It adds upA businessman was interviewing applicants for the position of Divisional Manager. He devised a simple test to select the most suitable person for the job. He asked each applicant the question, What is two and two? The first interviewee was a journalist. His answer was twenty-two. The second applicant was an engineer. He pulled out a calculator and showed the answer to be between 3.999999 and 4.000001. The next person was a lawyer. He stated that in the case of Jenkins v. Commer of Stamp Duties, two and two was proven to be four. The last applicant was an accountant. The businessman asked him, How much is two and two? The accountant got up from his chair, went over to the door, closed it then came back and sat down. He leaned across the desk and said in a low voice, How much do you want it to be?NSA again?The clerk walks into the bosss office and said, The auditors have just left, sir. Have they finished checking the books? asked the boss. Very thoroughly, was the reply. Well, what did they say, said the boss. They want 15 percent to keep quiet.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 2, 2014 Just to be clear, I may have been wrong. Of course, thats nothing new for a political commentator, although usually we dont have to admit we were mistaken. I have been among the herd-followers who have argued that Obamacare might do in the Democrats chances in this years elections for control of the Senate, with Republicans wasting no chance whatsoever to tarnish their opponents with the Affordable Care Act. Now, however, Im beginning to waver (another privilege that goes with this job). There are some indications that the GOP and its mega-rich supporters may be overplaying their one-card hand. No, this vacillation is not prompted by the news that the administrations Affordable Care Act participation projections have been exceeded, with 8 million sign-ups so far, including a respectable chunk of those highvalue low-age enrollees. Nor is it influenced at all by President Barack Obamas declaration that, This thing might be working. Thank you for sharing, Mr. President, but your opinion is not affecting mine. Instead, there are some glimmers out there that might shed some new light on appropriate strategies for this years campaigning. The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that one-third of the online respondents say they favor the Democrats approach to health care, versus 18 percent who prefer the Republicans. Thats an increase for the White House and a down figure for the GOP Of course, 40 percent of those participating had no earthly idea which party had which plan, which is a bummer, but it shows a slight upward trend for the Dems. In February, Obamacare approval was at 25 percent. If that momentum continues, it could mean that people are starting to get weary of the Republicans incessant hammering on the subject. In the House, theyve passed more than 50 bills that would repeal or sabotage health-care reform, and maybe its time to cool their jets. Couple that with the barrage of TV ads already flooding us from well-financed conservative groups trashing Democrats for having anything to do with Obamacare, and maybe, just maybe, a growing number of voters are wondering whether the GOP will stop long enough to reveal a credible alternative. Dont hold your breath. Added to the mix is the reality that some of the reforms are widely popular. So the president and his people are trying to shore up some enthusiasm for playing offense instead of defense. Their argument is that while the rollout was a well-documented disaster, repairs have been made and the new health system is starting to gain traction. That may be premature, but its food for thought for candidates in his party who were abandoning what they perceived to be Obamas sinking ship. Instead of saying, Health-care plan? What health-care plan? they suddenly might recall, Oh yeah, that health-care plan. As for the Republicans, there is no shortage of controversies, so they can have plenty of other issues with which to scorch the midterm election earth between now and November. Now I have contended both that health care means the Democrats are in deep trouble and also that perhaps theyre not. Its ideal: Whatever the outcome, Ill be correct and can brag about it. (c) 2014 Bob Franken Distributed by King Features Synd. There were a couple of stories coming out of the Sheriffs Office last week that, frankly, made me both sad and mad to read. They both involved swindles and/or theft from senior citizens. The second one was the old secret shopper scam. Someone gets chosen to be a secret shopper and receives a money order. Theyre told to deposit the money order in their bank, buy money cards and send the numbers of the money cards by e-mail to someone, who then cashes out the money cards, before the victims bank notifies them that the money order was fraudulent. In this case, the 66-year-old woman from Southwest Ocala was taken for $992. But by the time I got to the second story, the first one already had me boiling. In this one, someone who had access to the 86-year-old victims checks wrote checks for more than $70,000, draining the mans bank account. This theft came to light when the mans son, who lives in California, got a call from his dad saying he needed money to pay for groceries. The son knew that there should have been plenty of money in the account, and did some checking. He finally flew out to the Southwest Ocala mans home and took him to the Sheriffs substation to file a complaint. So once again we have to issue warnings, and if you take nothing else away from reading our newspaper, please, please pay attention. First, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The secret shopper scam has been around forever. It seems like easy money, but the only thing easy about it is how easy your bank account can get wiped out. Dont be looking for a quick buck from promotions like these. Whatever you do, never pay money to get something you didnt ask for. Along the same lines, remember that you cant win a sweepstakes or a foreign lottery if you didnt enter it. If you get notification that you have won, tear it up and throw it away. Chances are that somewhere down the road theyll want you to send some money for taxes or some other thing, and youll never see the prize. Second, be careful who you let into your house. If you must hire someone to clean, go through reputable agencies, preferably those who advertise in the newspaper. Dont answer individual classified ads, whether in the newspaper or online. Theres no guarantee that the people advertising in this manner are legitimate. If you do let someone in to do handyman work or cleaning, make sure you know where they are every minute. It only takes a moment for a trained thief to grab your checkbook most crooks know where to find them, no matter how well you try to hide them. Make sure you keep them far away from where you store your jewelry, too. Taking items and pawning them is a quick buck for the thieves. And if you have elderly parents, please be vigilant when it comes to their finances. It may not be easy, but get their permission to constantly monitor how they spend their money. Save yourself and your relatives some grief by being alert and not getting taken in by the crooks. Theyre everywhere out there dont help them out.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Chances are, a week ago, there are many of you who didnt know the name Donald Sterling, or that he was the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association. Probably even fewer of you knew who V. Stiviano was. But a picture of Stiviano with Magic Johnson on Instagram and the subsequent rant, allegedly by Sterling, has set off a firestorm of reaction across the country, and not just in sports circles. Stiviano is Sterlings girlfriend, and the two had a telephone conversation that was somehow recorded in which Sterling allegedly tells her not to bring African American guests to Clippers games and not to post pictures of her with African Americans. According to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, the process of authenticating the phone call is complete, and Sterling admitted it is his voice. At a press conference on Tuesday, Silver banned Sterling from the NBA for life. He also said he will ask the other owners to force Sterling to sell the team, a power that Silver evidently does not have. You have to ask, however, about the background of the recording. Is it legal in California to tape a phone conversation if one of the parties doesnt know its being recorded? Was Sterling deliberately being goaded into making incriminating statements? It sure sounds that way when you listen to the entire conversation. Who released it? Stiviano says she didnt. She, by the way, is being sued by Sterlings estranged wife because of gifts she received. The Clippers rebounded nicely from a defeat on Sunday to win Game 5 on Tuesday night, putting them only one win away from taking the series. The big question now, however, is what will Sterling do? The vote to oust him seems to be a foregone conclusion, and may have been completed by the time you read this. Sterling, however, is a lawyer known for litigating anything and everything. He has even refused to pay coaches he fired even though they had years left on their contracts. The possibility of transferring ownership to his estranged wife has been raised. Can he do that? Does the league have the right to ban his whole family, when he is the only one accused of wrongdoing. This case, obviously, isnt over. The basketball world waits to see what Sterling will do next. Theres only one thing that will make this go away and thats a big For Sale sign on the outside of Clippers offices. Help the young manWere aware that some readers only read the news that interests them, particularly when it comes to the items from the various communities. However, this week, we refer you to the Cherrywood column, particularly the last segment titled From Your Reporter. It chronicles the movement to get enough votes for a paralyzed young man so he can get a new van to increase his mobility. It seems like a good cause, and it wont cost you anything, so please refer to that column and follow the directions. You can help a young man in need of better transportation.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

For our 2014 Spring concert, Matthew Bumbach, MCC Conductor and Director of Vocal Studies, College of Central Florida, presents Wolfgang Amadeus Mozarts Coronation Mass and Aaron Coplands Old American Songs, with guest soloists and pianist Ricky Hendrix. The Civic Chorales concert balances the sacred music of the classical era with the light hearted beauty of traditional American songs. Mozart wrote the Mass in C major (1779) simply as a short Ordinary of the mass; it later acquired its Coronation title when it was performed at the 1791 coronation of Leopold II, King of Bohemia. Coplands Old American Songs, originally set for solo voices, maintains its fun nature in this re-orchestration for choir. The local performance will be Sunday, May 11, at Countryside Presbyterian Church, 7768 State Road 200, at 3 p.m. Other performances are Friday, May 9, at 7 p.m. at St. George Anglican Cathedral and Saturday, May10, at 3 p.m. at First United Methodist Church.Monday, May 12 Retired nurses to meetThe Citrus Marion Chapter of Registered Nurses Retired (RNR) will meet on May 12 at West Marion Medical Bldg. in Ocala.

Marion County Commissioner Stan McClain, Sierra Club activist Whitey Markle and Williston attorney Beth Gordon will discuss this issue when the May 9 Friday Forum of Marion County explores the environmental and property rights ramifications of the pipeline planned to run from Alabama through Georgia and western Marion County south to Osceola County. Invitations have also been extended to State Senator Charlie Dean and Dunnellon Mayor Nathan Whitt. Barbara Schwartz, secretary of the Silver Springs Alliance, will moderate. According to the April 26 Georgia Moultrie Observer the EPA, after citizen comment, has raised questions about potential threats to water, land, air and wildlife with the Federal Energy Regulation Commission which is ultimately responsible for deciding the route of the pipeline The EPA also recommended that Florida Power & Light, the end user, consider alternative methods of serving customers. These include conservation, alternative energy sources and importing liquified natural gas from Mississippi. Electricity sales peaked in 2007 with increased use of more efficient light bulbs appliances and buildings, perhaps even obviating the need for an additional pipeline. The nonpartisan speaker/ luncheon group gathers on the second Friday of each month at 11:30 a.m. at Buffet City, State Road 200 at MLK Jr. Blvd. in Ocala. The $10 charge, payable directly to the restaurant, includes the buffet, tax, tip and a drink.

This hour Pat Wellington mainly talked about dreams. Cayce could interpret dreams. A dream about shoes or feet what one is attempting to do. Nightmare change your diet. Dreams are about you. Consider how you feel after the dream. Pat passed around a paper with instructions on how to make and use a Castor Oil Pack. If youd rather buy than make one, the website is baar.com It has been used through out the ages as a natural therapy. Castor oil applied externally in the form of packs is very popular with natural health practitioners. The Edgar Cayce Readings inform us that castor oil packs are to be used to improve assimilations, eliminations and circulation; especially of the lymphatic system. Life South Blood MobileThe worst is behind us! Old Man Winter is gone ... summer is in full bloom! People are out and about. Some are enjoying the healing rays of the sun. Some are lucky and are in good health. Some need the help of others, our help...for healing, for recovering, for life itself. Blood is a very precious commodity everywhere. Those who need blood to survive and endure need help from the healthy ones of us who take the time to donate regularly. Your one pint of blood can, and most likely will, help save three others who need that blood. On May 5, the Life South Bloodmobile will be parked in the front parking lot of On Top Of the Worlds Health and Recreation Building from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Come in to see how well our professionals work with people like you. Lie down, put your arm up, and stay a while, while that donation is collected. You will leave the Bloodmobile with a nice treat to eat, and a drink if you like and a small gift to make your visit even more memorable. Hey! Its your life ... share the wealth of health! 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 WanamakerMaster the PossibilitiesNext week is a very good time for our Master the Possibilities Center for Lifelong Learning.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be tempted to be more assertive when dealing with a job-related matter. But a carefully measured approach works best at getting the cooperation youre looking for. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) While others urge you to act now, you instinctively recognize that a move at this time is not in your best interests. You should know when to do so by weeks end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A busy schedule keeps you on the move for much of the week. But things ease up by the time the weekend arrives, allowing you to reconnect with family and friends. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Travel dominates the week, and despite some delays in getting to where you want to go, the overall experience should prove to be a positive one in many ways. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Your Leonine self-confidence comes roaring back after a brief period of doubt and helps you get through a week of demanding challenges and ultimately emerge triumphant. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Virgos who have made a major commitment personal or professional should be able to tap into a renewed reservoir of self-confidence to help them follow through. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You soon could receive news from a surprising source that could cause you to change your mind about how you had planned to deal with an ongoing job-related problem. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A surprise move of support from a colleague who has never been part of your circle of admirers helps influence others to take a new look at what youve put on the table. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) While a bold decision to take an I know what Im doing approach impresses some colleagues, it also raises the risk of causing resentment among others. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A misunderstanding twixt you and a friend might not be your fault at all, despite what he or she suggests. Talk it out to see at what point the confusion might have started. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Getting into a community operation fulfills the Aquarians need to help people. It also can lead to new contacts that might one day help you with a project. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A minor problem could delay the start of a long-anticipated trip for two. Use the time to recheck your travel plans. You might find a better way to get where youre going. 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

R otary plans rib saleScrumptious! Delicious! Succulent! 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 smoke-cooked 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.

Four public high schools in Marion County are nationally ranked this year by the Washington Post and US News & World Report. The national rankings, issued earlier this month, consider numerous factors independently of each other. The Washington Posts Most Challenging High Schools listing ranks Belleview High at #323 (up from 525 last year) and Vanguard High at #878 (down from 584 last year). This years prestigious list ranks 2,110 high schools nationwide. Just nine percent of approximately 22,000 US high schools made the final cut. Meantime, two other schools earned Bronze status on this years US News & World Report rankings Lake Weir High and West Port High schools. Both were also on last years list. This publication considered 31,242 schools nationwide; only 4,707 medaled, including 162 in Florida. Lake Weir and West Port are among Floridas 81 Bronze-medal recipients. Two years ago, the Washington Post revamped its rating formula and now ranks schools based on the number of college-level exams given each year -including International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP), and Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) -divided by the number of graduating seniors that year. The latest rankings are based on 2013 numbers. US News & World Report national and state rankings consider three factors performance of all students on state standards testing, performance of least-advantaged students on state standards testing, and college-readiness. Four high schools earn national rankings Chief Executive Officer Rich Mutarelli has announced the appointment of Phil A. Wright II as the new Chief Operating Officer for Munroe Regional Medical Center.

Thats why CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and CareerSource Florida have teamed up with the Bureau of Tobacco Free Florida to support tobacco users efforts to quit. Starting Monday, job seekers visiting any of the CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion one-stop career centers will be able to learn about free resources available through the Tobacco Free Lets Shake on It program. Were seeing a wave of businesses banning use of tobacco products, that means for employees as well, said Rusty Skinner, CEO of CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion. Our staff is now empowered to promise to do whatever it takes to help job seekers quit if they are interested in that help. Upon request, placement specialists will distribute Tobacco Free Florida information and materials and will be able to make referrals to a wealth of free resources, including cessation classes, nicotine patches and/or gum. CareerSource to help job applicants kick the habit The Lets Shake on It partnership involves all 24 of Floridas workforce development region.

In the meantime, Skinner emphasized that job seekers participation in the Tobacco Free Florida program is voluntary and not required to receive placement services. Our involvement in the Tobacco Free Florida initiative is to assist those who want to quit so that their tobacco habit doesnt stand in the way of meeting their career goals. Four public high schools in Marion County are nationally ranked this year by the Washington Post and US News & World Report. The national rankings, issued earlier this month, consider numerous factors independently of each other. The Washington Posts Most Challenging High Schools listing ranks Belleview High at #323 (up from 525 last year) and Vanguard High at #878 (down from 584 last year). This years prestigious list ranks 2,110 high schools nationwide. Just nine percent of approximately 22,000 US high schools made the final cut. Meantime, two other schools earned Bronze status on this years US News & World Report rankings Lake Weir High and West Port High schools. Both were also on last years list. This publication considered 31,242 schools nationwide; only 4,707 medaled, including 162 in Florida. Lake Weir and West Port are among Floridas 81 Bronze-medal recipients. Two years ago, the Washington Post revamped its rating formula and now ranks schools based on the number of college-level exams given each year -including International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP), and Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) -divided by the number of graduating seniors that year. The latest rankings are based on 2013 numbers. US News & World Report national and state rankings consider three factors performance of all students on state standards testing, performance of least-advantaged students on state standards testing, and college-readiness. Four high schools earn national rankings Chief Executive Officer Rich Mutarelli has announced the appointment of Phil A. Wright II as the new Chief Operating Officer for Munroe Regional Medical Center. Wright joins the hospital from Southampton Memorial Hospital in Franklin, Va. where he has served as Chief Executive Officer since 2010. Phil brings great experience and strong credentials to this role, said Mutarelli. We are very pleased to have identified such a seasoned professional to fill this important position. During his tenure at Southampton, Wright led the hospitals work to provide patients with quality, personalized care which ultimately earned the hospital the highest patient satisfaction in Hampton Roads for two years. The hospital recruited physicians, built a new medical office building and outpatient rehab center, and added new service lines to meet the communitys needs. I am excited to become a part of the outstanding organization at Munroe Regional, said Wright. The hospital is noted for strong quality of care and I look forward to supporting the members of the medical staff and employees in their work.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be tempted to be more assertive when dealing with a job-related matter. But a carefully measured approach works best at getting the cooperation youre looking for. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) While others urge you to act now, you instinctively recognize that a move at this time is not in your best interests. You should know when to do so by weeks end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A busy schedule keeps you on the move for much of the week. But things ease up by the time the weekend arrives, allowing you to reconnect with family and friends. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Travel dominates the week, and despite some delays in getting to where you want to go, the overall experience should prove to be a positive one in many ways.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Virgos who have made a major commitment personal or professional should be able to tap into a renewed reservoir of self-confidence to help them follow through. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You soon could receive news from a surprising source that could cause you to change your mind about how you had planned to deal with an ongoing job-related problem. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A surprise move of support from a colleague who has never been part of your circle of admirers helps influence others to take a new look at what youve put on the table. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) While a bold decision to take an I know what Im doing approach impresses some colleagues, it also raises the risk of causing resentment among others.

Talk it out to see at what point the confusion might have started. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Getting into a community operation fulfills the Aquarians need to help people. It also can lead to new contacts that might one day help you with a project. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A minor problem could delay the start of a long-anticipated trip for two.

R otary plans rib saleScrumptious! Delicious! Succulent! 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 smoke-cooked 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.

This hour Pat Wellington mainly talked about dreams. Cayce could interpret dreams. A dream about shoes or feet what one is attempting to do. Nightmare change your diet. Dreams are about you. Consider how you feel after the dream. Pat passed around a paper with instructions on how to make and use a Castor Oil Pack. If youd rather buy than make one, the website is baar.com It has been used through out the ages as a natural therapy. Castor oil applied externally in the form of packs is very popular with natural health practitioners. The Edgar Cayce Readings inform us that castor oil packs are to be used to improve assimilations, eliminations and circulation; especially of the lymphatic system. Life South Blood MobileThe worst is behind us! Old Man Winter is gone ... summer is in full bloom! People are out and about. Some are enjoying the healing rays of the sun. Some are lucky and are in good health. Some need the help of others, our help...for healing, for recovering, for life itself. Blood is a very precious commodity everywhere. Those who need blood to survive and endure need help from the healthy ones of us who take the time to donate regularly. Your one pint of blood can, and most likely will, help save three others who need that blood.

Marion County Commissioner Stan McClain, Sierra Club activist Whitey Markle and Williston attorney Beth Gordon will discuss this issue when the May 9 Friday Forum of Marion County explores the environmental and property rights ramifications of the pipeline planned to run from Alabama through Georgia and western Marion County south to Osceola County. Invitations have also been extended to State Senator Charlie Dean and Dunnellon Mayor Nathan Whitt. Barbara Schwartz, secretary of the Silver Springs Alliance, will moderate. According to the April 26 Georgia Moultrie Observer the EPA, after citizen comment, has raised questions about potential threats to water, land, air and wildlife with the Federal Energy Regulation Commission which is ultimately responsible for deciding the route of the pipeline The EPA also recommended that Florida Power & Light, the end user, consider alternative methods of serving customers. These include conservation, alternative energy sources and importing liquified natural gas from Mississippi. Electricity sales peaked in 2007 with increased use of more efficient light bulbs appliances and buildings, perhaps even obviating the need for an additional pipeline. The nonpartisan speaker/ luncheon group gathers on the second Friday of each month at 11:30 a.m. at Buffet City, State Road 200 at MLK Jr. Blvd. in Ocala. The $10 charge, payable directly to the restaurant, includes the buffet, tax, tip and a drink.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 2, 2014 Just to be clear, I may have been wrong. Of course, thats nothing new for a political commentator, although usually we dont have to admit we were mistaken. I have been among the herd-followers who have argued that Obamacare might do in the Democrats chances in this years elections for control of the Senate, with Republicans wasting no chance whatsoever to tarnish their opponents with the Affordable Care Act. Now, however, Im beginning to waver (another privilege that goes with this job). There are some indications that the GOP and its mega-rich supporters may be overplaying their one-card hand. No, this vacillation is not prompted by the news that the administrations Affordable Care Act participation projections have been exceeded, with 8 million sign-ups so far, including a respectable chunk of those highvalue low-age enrollees. Nor is it influenced at all by President Barack Obamas declaration that, This thing might be working. Thank you for sharing, Mr. President, but your opinion is not affecting mine. Instead, there are some glimmers out there that might shed some new light on appropriate strategies for this years campaigning. The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that one-third of the online respondents say they favor the Democrats approach to health care, versus 18 percent who prefer the Republicans. Thats an increase for the White House and a down figure for the GOP Of course, 40 percent of those participating had no earthly idea which party had which plan, which is a bummer, but it shows a slight upward trend for the Dems. In February, Obamacare approval was at 25 percent. If that momentum continues, it could mean that people are starting to get weary of the Republicans incessant hammering on the subject. In the House, theyve passed more than 50 bills that would repeal or sabotage health-care reform, and maybe its time to cool their jets. Couple that with the barrage of TV ads already flooding us from well-financed conservative groups trashing Democrats for having anything to do with Obamacare, and maybe, just maybe, a growing number of voters are wondering whether the GOP will stop long enough to reveal a credible alternative. Dont hold your breath. Added to the mix is the reality that some of the reforms are widely popular. So the president and his people are trying to shore up some enthusiasm for playing offense instead of defense. Their argument is that while the rollout was a well-documented disaster, repairs have been made and the new health system is starting to gain traction. That may be premature, but its food for thought for candidates in his party who were abandoning what they perceived to be Obamas sinking ship. Instead of saying, Health-care plan? What health-care plan? they suddenly might recall, Oh yeah, that health-care plan. As for the Republicans, there is no shortage of controversies, so they can have plenty of other issues with which to scorch the midterm election earth between now and November. Now I have contended both that health care means the Democrats are in deep trouble and also that perhaps theyre not. Its ideal: Whatever the outcome, Ill be correct and can brag about it. (c) 2014 Bob Franken Distributed by King Features Synd. There were a couple of stories coming out of the Sheriffs Office last week that, frankly, made me both sad and mad to read. They both involved swindles and/or theft from senior citizens. The second one was the old secret shopper scam. Someone gets chosen to be a secret shopper and receives a money order. Theyre told to deposit the money order in their bank, buy money cards and send the numbers of the money cards by e-mail to someone, who then cashes out the money cards, before the victims bank notifies them that the money order was fraudulent. In this case, the 66-year-old woman from Southwest Ocala was taken for $992. But by the time I got to the second story, the first one already had me boiling. In this one, someone who had access to the 86-year-old victims checks wrote checks for more than $70,000, draining the mans bank account. This theft came to light when the mans son, who lives in California, got a call from his dad saying he needed money to pay for groceries. The son knew that there should have been plenty of money in the account, and did some checking. He finally flew out to the Southwest Ocala mans home and took him to the Sheriffs substation to file a complaint. So once again we have to issue warnings, and if you take nothing else away from reading our newspaper, please, please pay attention. First, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The secret shopper scam has been around forever. It seems like easy money, but the only thing easy about it is how easy your bank account can get wiped out. Dont be looking for a quick buck from promotions like these. Whatever you do, never pay money to get something you didnt ask for. Along the same lines, remember that you cant win a sweepstakes or a foreign lottery if you didnt enter it. If you get notification that you have won, tear it up and throw it away. Chances are that somewhere down the road theyll want you to send some money for taxes or some other thing, and youll never see the prize. Second, be careful who you let into your house. If you must hire someone to clean, go through reputable agencies, preferably those who advertise in the newspaper. Dont answer individual classified ads, whether in the newspaper or online. Theres no guarantee that the people advertising in this manner are legitimate. If you do let someone in to do handyman work or cleaning, make sure you know where they are every minute. It only takes a moment for a trained thief to grab your checkbook most crooks know where to find them, no matter how well you try to hide them. Make sure you keep them far away from where you store your jewelry, too. Taking items and pawning them is a quick buck for the thieves. And if you have elderly parents, please be vigilant when it comes to their finances. It may not be easy, but get their permission to constantly monitor how they spend their money. Save yourself and your relatives some grief by being alert and not getting taken in by the crooks. Theyre everywhere out there dont help them out.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Chances are, a week ago, there are many of you who didnt know the name Donald Sterling, or that he was the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association. Probably even fewer of you knew who V. Stiviano was. But a picture of Stiviano with Magic Johnson on Instagram and the subsequent rant, allegedly by Sterling, has set off a firestorm of reaction across the country, and not just in sports circles. Stiviano is Sterlings girlfriend, and the two had a telephone conversation that was somehow recorded in which Sterling allegedly tells her not to bring African American guests to Clippers games and not to post pictures of her with African Americans. According to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, the process of authenticating the phone call is complete, and Sterling admitted it is his voice. At a press conference on Tuesday, Silver banned Sterling from the NBA for life. He also said he will ask the other owners to force Sterling to sell the team, a power that Silver evidently does not have. You have to ask, however, about the background of the recording. Is it legal in California to tape a phone conversation if one of the parties doesnt know its being recorded? Was Sterling deliberately being goaded into making incriminating statements? It sure sounds that way when you listen to the entire conversation. Who released it? Stiviano says she didnt. She, by the way, is being sued by Sterlings estranged wife because of gifts she received. The Clippers rebounded nicely from a defeat on Sunday to win Game 5 on Tuesday night, putting them only one win away from taking the series. The big question now, however, is what will Sterling do? The vote to oust him seems to be a foregone conclusion, and may have been completed by the time you read this. Sterling, however, is a lawyer known for litigating anything and everything. He has even refused to pay coaches he fired even though they had years left on their contracts. The possibility of transferring ownership to his estranged wife has been raised. Can he do that? Does the league have the right to ban his whole family, when he is the only one accused of wrongdoing. This case, obviously, isnt over. The basketball world waits to see what Sterling will do next. Theres only one thing that will make this go away and thats a big For Sale sign on the outside of Clippers offices. Help the young manWere aware that some readers only read the news that interests them, particularly when it comes to the items from the various communities. However, this week, we refer you to the Cherrywood column, particularly the last segment titled From Your Reporter. It chronicles the movement to get enough votes for a paralyzed young man so he can get a new van to increase his mobility. It seems like a good cause, and it wont cost you anything, so please refer to that column and follow the directions. You can help a young man in need of better transportation.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

For our 2014 Spring concert, Matthew Bumbach, MCC Conductor and Director of Vocal Studies, College of Central Florida, presents Wolfgang Amadeus Mozarts Coronation Mass and Aaron Coplands Old American Songs, with guest soloists and pianist Ricky Hendrix. The Civic Chorales concert balances the sacred music of the classical era with the light hearted beauty of traditional American songs. Mozart wrote the Mass in C major (1779) simply as a short Ordinary of the mass; it later acquired its Coronation title when it was performed at the 1791 coronation of Leopold II, King of Bohemia. Coplands Old American Songs, originally set for solo voices, maintains its fun nature in this re-orchestration for choir. The local performance will be Sunday, May 11, at Countryside Presbyterian Church, 7768 State Road 200, at 3 p.m. Other performances are Friday, May 9, at 7 p.m. at St. George Anglican Cathedral and Saturday, May10, at 3 p.m. at First United Methodist Church.Monday, May 12 Retired nurses to meetThe Citrus Marion Chapter of Registered Nurses Retired (RNR) will meet on May 12 at West Marion Medical Bldg. in Ocala.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com For a very brief time last week I was under the impression I was all caught up. Dont you like the feeling that comes knowing you are up to date and everything is accomplished? I do, I just do not experience it enough. It was entirely my own fault. I was gloating over the fact I had accomplished everything on my to-do-list and had some time to spare. Spare time is a rare commodity these days, at least for me. I do not even have spare change and it has been months since I have seen my spare tire. Time is a different matter altogether. Just when I think I have a little spare time on my hands, I find it slipping through my fingers. As I said, I was gloating over the fact I was all caught up. Being in a rather cheerful mood, I thought I would look at my calendar. I do not look at my calendar that often. It is so depressing, always telling me what to do. I hate it when somebody tells me what to do. My calendar looks at me and I look back and it simply says, do this. And there it is in black and white. What else can I do? Without actually thinking the issue through carefully, I opened up my calendar and discovered something quite startling. It takes a whole lot to startle me. In fact, it takes a whole lot just to get me started on anything. However, I looked at my calendar and was woefully startled. I noticed on my calendar it was the month of May. What happened to March and April? In fact, what happened to January and February? I should have gotten a hint with all the rain we had in April. Remember that little line that goes, April showers bring May flowers? While I was focused on the showers in April, I did not notice that April was exhausting itself and May was sneaking around the corner to surprise me. Boy, did it surprise me. I guess I was just too occupied during the month of April to realize that April has a time limit. April has 30 days and when those 30 days are kaput, April is over and it is May. I do not think May is any different from any other month. It is just that I wish the months would slow down a little bit. It seems at the beginning of the month everything is going rather slowly and then when you hit the middle of the month the days must go into some kind of panic and race towards the end. Why these days of the month have to hasten towards the remainder of the month is something I will never wrap my head around. If I were a swearing man, I would swear it was still February. I believe there ought to be a month, at least one month in the year, where there are like And very suddenly, the calendar has turned to May 75 to 80 days. Why be so legalistic about all of this? Why be so judgmental? Every day of the month insists it will only be around for 24 hours. Not 25 hours. Not even 20 hours. But every day insists on being around for 24 hours and then it disappears. Now, where does it go? When I go on a vacation, I know where I am going and the sad part of my vacation is at the end of the vacation I come back. Now where does time go? And, why doesnt it ever return. For instance. I am thinking of celebrating my 37th birthday this year. I am not 37 years old, but I cannot remember what I did on my 37th birthday. I think that if I cannot remember what happened on my 37th birthday, I should be able to repeat it. Why cant I go back and be 37 for just one day? I do not need to be 37 forever, just one day! But no, Father Time has made a rule that you can only be 37 one day out of the year and you can never repeat that, ever again. Of course, there was Jack Benny who was 39 all his life. I noticed in my calendar there were many items that needed doing. As I looked at them, I realized I had done them the month before. Some things are so insistent that you do them every month. My electric bill, for instance. Why do I have to pay that every month? Why cant the electric company give me a vacation once a year? Another thing that bothers me. When I am having a good time at whatever I am doing, why does time pass so quickly? I remember in school the time leading up to recess went ever so slow and I never thought it would arrive. Once I got out to recess, it went so quickly I had to return to class almost before I left the classroom. What is that all about? I took a little bit of time to think about what good old King Solomon said about the subject. To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Time is a commodity either you spend it or lose it. The bad part is once you lose it you can never get it back. Enjoy today, its the only today you have.Rev. James L.

Events at VFW Post 4781 May Is International Internal Audit Awareness Month, a time to promote the internal audit profession to all audit customers and others in the business community. Perhaps its the time to get ready for an IRS audit that some of us may have to experience. To me, theres no accounting for Pun Alley stories that look at auditors and accountants.Cant hideThe CEO and CFO were perplexed. They thought they had hidden all of the unusual transactions for the past year and were sure that the auditors would never discover their fraudulent practices. On the last day of the audit, one of the audit staff that the CEO and CFO did not recognize came in with all of the transactions that the devious pair had covered up. Obviously they were shaken. Finally the CFO said, How did the audit firm discover these transactions? Without batting an eye the man said, Audit firm? Im with the NSA.JumpyAn auditor was crossing a road when a frog called out to him and said, If you kiss me, Ill turn into a beautiful princess. He picked up the frog and put it in his pocket. The frog spoke up again and said, If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week. The auditor ignored the frog. Then the frog cried out, If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, Ill stay with you and do anything you want. The auditor took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and put it back. Finally, the frog asked, What is the matter? Ive told you Im a beautiful princess that will stay with you and do anything you want. Why wont you kiss me? The auditor said, Look Im an auditor. I dont have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now thats cool.Sleep on itAn accountant was having a hard time sleeping and went to see his doctor. Doctor, I just cant get to sleep at night. Have you tried counting sheep? Thats the problem. I make a mistake and then spend three hours trying to find itShort To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the accountant, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be. A private detective was hired to find a company accountant, and asked, Is he tall or short? The boss answered, Both! The cannibal audit practice charged an arm and a leg. An accountant is someone who solves a problem you didnt know you had in a way you dont understand. The Form 1040 means that for every $50 you earn, you get $40, the IRS gets $10. The accountant just went into business with Ford. They make the cars; he makes the license plates. Homeless accountants live in a tax shelter. The company accountant is shy and retiring. Hes shy a quarter of a million dollars. Thats why hes retiring. Old accountants never die. They just lose their balance. Income Tax Auditor: Mrs. Fredericks, whats your husbands average income? Mrs. Fredericks: Oh, about midnight.It adds upA businessman was interviewing applicants for the position of Divisional Manager. He devised a simple test to select the most suitable person for the job. He asked each applicant the question, What is two and two? The first interviewee was a journalist. His answer was twenty-two. The second applicant was an engineer. He pulled out a calculator and showed the answer to be between 3.999999 and 4.000001. The next person was a lawyer. He stated that in the case of Jenkins v. Commer of Stamp Duties, two and two was proven to be four. The last applicant was an accountant. The businessman asked him, How much is two and two? The accountant got up from his chair, went over to the door, closed it then came back and sat down. He leaned across the desk and said in a low voice, How much do you want it to be?NSA again?The clerk walks into the bosss office and said, The auditors have just left, sir. Have they finished checking the books? asked the boss. Very thoroughly, was the reply. Well, what did they say, said the boss. They want 15 percent to keep quiet.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Ioften comment to my husband how complicated our lives are living in the present age. Today you have to be somewhat of a computer genius as you wend your way through the supermarket with your smart phone downloading facts and recipes and picking up your deli order you ordered on line. A laser device scans your items at the check out and everybody uses reusable shopping totes for purchases. Todays supermarket carries all sorts of items from ethnic foods to mops and soaps, produce, bakery, dairy, meat, canned goods and everything in between. Super these places are but growing up as a young Jewish girl in New Britain, CT in the early s, things were a lot different. Our local Jewish shopping districts main street was called Hartford Avenue. Even back in the early s, the once central area of Jewish settlement was going into decay. As in many urban areas in the Northeast, the black population was moving in, as the Jews were moving out. Nevertheless, there were still stores frequented by Jewish shoppers in the days before the supermarket. My favorite was Cherniaks deli. Step into this store with its wooden floors and dusty shelves of canned goods hardly anyone bought because the main attraction here were the kosher sliced luncheon meats. We always seemed to hit this place at 5 p.m., close enough to dinnertime that the mere aroma of salami would make my mouth water. Mr. Cherniak would always offer me a slice, which I would eat greedily while my eyes would wander over to the big barrels of half sour pickles. A pickle for a nickel I used to quip and on occasion I would be rewarded with one of the garlicky delights. My mother would also purchase hot dogs with their casings intact, coleslaw and whole smoked whitefish. Across the street was the kosher butcher shop. It still remember the black and white tiled floor and white interior. Bachrachs was a very clean store and all the meats were neatly displayed in glass display cases. My favorites were the lamb chops, the kind that had the whole chop plus an end piece, a cut I have not seen in probably fifty years. Nothing prepackaged here and everything was cut and slaughtered according to Jewish ritual. I tried not to think about the back room where I knew they hung the forequarters of beef on meat hooks above the sawdust strewed wooden floor. Even with this information, I still enjoyed hamburgers and steaks. A few blocks down was the kosher bakery, Cousins. Here my mother would buy challah for Shabbat and rye bread for the deli. You could get a loaf of the chewy stuff for 25 cents. They were also famous for their bagels. I remember the bakery clerk giving my baby sister one to chew on as we made our bakery selections. What made a Jewish bakery unique was that no lard was used in baking. Today, health conscious shoppers prefer all-vegetable shortening but back in the s, it was harder to find places and products that featured kosher shortening. We always left the shop with a half dozen of my favorite donuts, plain with a chocolate stripe on top, filled with buttercream. Not exactly a healthy choice but they sure were good! Our last stop was Marty Sidoyians produce shop. Marty was not Jewish but Armenian and catered to a Jewish crowd. Of course everything was sold in bulk from wooden baskets much like you see at the wayside produce stands here in Florida. Unlike today when eating a variety of foods from different cultures is a way of life, back in the s it was not so popular to cross ethnic boundaries. I often wanted my mother to buy okra but she said that was something black people ate and I never tasted it until I was well into adulthood. There were other vegetables more indigenous to the South and what we would now call soul food since the greengrocer also sold to the black population who were rapidly moving into the area. Still, if I could have a sweet red pepper or two I was content. Things have certainly changed in the years I have described. The world is older, faster and more impersonal. Still I wouldnt trade my modern supermarket for the time consuming store hopping method my mother used to patronize. Nor would I have put my baby sister in a car seat unsecured by a seatbelt as we did in those days riding back from our shopping trips. But those were the times we lived in, nostalgic to be sure, but not necessarily better. Still the past has a powerful hold on us. When news leaked recently that an iconic Connecticut Jewish supermarket was in financial trouble, a few Jewish philanthropists stepped forward and bought the store to keep the tradition going with plans to modernize and improve the stores wares for todays Jewish consumer.

Southwest Christian Church is a traditional worshiping church. Our worship service includes the beloved old-time Gospel Hymns together with some of todays contemporary choruses. We preach and teach strictly from Gods Word. We believe the entire Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God given to us by God through His chosen writers, to enable us to know Him and to understand how to live our lives in the way He requires, so that we might be pleasing and acPLEASESEERELIGION, PAGE11 OLIVE KITTERIDGE By Elizabeth Strout Pulitzer-prize winning Olive Kitteridge, a novel in stories, centers on a retired schoolteacher who deplores the changes in the world at large but fails to recognize the changes in those around her in her little town of Crosby, Maine. Linking these 13 rich, luminous stories is largerthan-life Olive, who is thoroughly unlikeable when the novel opens but soon grows on the reader. Chronologically the stories make us aware of a woman growing old, the range of her memory playing over the terrain traversed. Although usually dismissive of her fellow townspeople, dubbing them flub-dub, and hellion, and moron, she slowly comes to appreciate their merits. In Basket Full of Trips, storekeeper Marlene learns of her husbands infidelity after he dies but still finds his obsession with trips he would never take heartbreaking. Olive seems to see her for the first time when she says, An innocent, Olive thinks, gazing at the woman. A real one. You dont find them anymore. Boy, you dont. In Tulips, the woman Olive had labeled a rich snob emerges as an admirable match for the strongwilled protagonist. Louise Larkin knows Olive likes hearing of other peoples problems, and she has recently had her share. Still, she calls Olive on her disingenuous sympathy visit:You came here for a nice dose of schadenfreude, and it didnt work. Story by story the scales fall from Olives eyes. She has squandered the years with her saintly late husband Henry, she has misunderstood her son, misjudged her neighbors, and deceived herself. But even if the novels subjects are discontent, waste, betrayal, sorrow, and fear, the voice at the close is composed, chastened, rueful, and ironic. There is finally a note of confirmation. And for readers theres a happy ending of sorts when the crusty math teacher finds contentment where she least expected it. Highly recommended.

Erica worked to gather the first books and set up procedures for the library. Erica has continued to work as a librarian all these years and should be commended for her hard work and diligence. With summer coming and snowbirds leaving and others vacationing and visiting families, the library is in need of more volunteers. Please ask the librarian at the desk for an application form and you will be asked to come in after library hours for training. Then, you will be assigned to work with two librarians. After this training is completed, you will go on our sub list for the day captains to call you to work. If you want a regular schedule, please mention it to your trainer and she will put you on that list. A regular librarian works a shift of 9 12; 12 3; or 3 5 every other week so it isnt too much of your time. For those of you traveling this summer, remember paperback books can be signed out without any return date. So, if you will be gone for 3 or 4 weeks, you can take as many as 10 paperbacks with you. Or, you can purchase used books at our book sale on May 10 at the donut drop in. Paperbacks are just ten cents and hard back books are just a dollar.Reach outReach Out is the volunteer group of neighbors helping neighbors. We presently offer help in minor home repairs, computer and TV hookups, replacing light bulbs in ceiling fixtures or lamp posts. There is no charge, but donations will be accepted and passed on to charities in this area. Also available is transportation to medical appointments.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com There were several down and outers for the first Hobo Dance at Cherrywood. These well dressed vagabonds wore their finest duds complete with patches on their britches and hats with holes. Everyone had a great time and it looks like this will be a returning annual event. The Activities Team under the leadership of Eve Houghtaling cooked up a special Hobo Stew to be served as the main course. The meat was tender and delicious and gobbled up by everyone. The veggies were a great addition to the meal also; adding flavor, color and even nutrition. All of the guests brought their own dish to use for the meal and varying from military mess kits to tin cans. It was fun to see the imaginations of our hobo residents at work. Our own Richard Becotte provided the music for this party putting everyone in a good mood and getting them up dancing. At their request, our line dancers got in several tunes that allowed them to show their steps. To watch the large group on the floor dancing in perfect unison was quite a sight. Donna Moran, won best costume and Pia Dean won one of the 50/50 raffle prizes that were awarded adding some more fun and excitement to the evening. Next year we expect an even larger turn out for this very informal and fun dance.Dont miss Derby DayExcitement is building for our Derby Day celebration scheduled for this Saturday, May 3. The clubhouse doors open at 5 p.m. and admission is free to all Cherrywood residents; no tickets needed. You wont want to miss seeing the race on our big screen as you root for your favorite horse or jockey. Ladies decorate your bonnets and put them into the hat contest. Judges will decide who has the most beautiful or original hat and prizes will be awarded. Last year the competition was really tough so dont spare the horses in your decorations. While youre at this festive event sample a mint julep or other libation that is befitting of the race. A few of those traditional cocktails and youll be in the mood to run the race yourself. If youd prefer to have a different drink: feel free to bring your own. Immediately following the big race, our clubhouse gets transformed into a paddock for our own horses. These wooden cut-outs of race horses are all numbered and decorated with different colors. Hobos swarm at the Cherrywood clubhouse Some of the hobos at the Cherrywood clubhouse. PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 Cherrywood John Everlove See Geri to get your free tickets and plan on a very fun and entertaining evening.Memorial DayYour Veterans Club will be hosting its annual Memorial Day celebration on Friday, May 30 at 11 a.m. While the rest of the country moved Memorial Day to the last Monday of May; your Veterans Club has opted to celebrate the original Memorial Day each May 30. This solemn service honors the memories of those who died in defense of our nation from the Revolutionary War right through to the War on Terror. It is a day of remembering those who have fallen in service to their country and honoring their sacrifice. In addition, we honor the families of those who died. Their loss and suffering is shared by all grateful Americans. Join our Color Guard; our Veterans Club Officers; widows; volunteers and special guest speaker as we pay tribute to those who have given their all for us. Immediately following the service, an All American lunch will be served in the clubhouse. Our menu includes hamburgers and hot dogs cooked on the grill with beans and other side dishes. You are welcome to bring your own beverage or enjoy the iced tea and lemonade that will be available. Music will be played by Rich Becotte so you can party; dance and enjoy the life that has been given to us by our fallen heroes. We owe it to them to remember and to share good times with friends and loved ones. Our Memorial Day service is open to everyone for no charge. Lunch tickets are just $7 per person with all proceeds going to the Cherrywood Veterans Club. See Geri or any Veterans Club Officer for your tickets.From your reporterOn behalf of myself and the OHern family, I would like to express my sincere thanks to all of you who have been helping Freds grandson Jacob. Several weeks ago I shared Jacobs story with you but let me refresh your memory and introduce him to new readers. Two years ago Jacob OHern was going to enlist in the Armed Forces. Tragically, he was involved in an auto accident and suffered a fractured spine. The injury made this strong healthy young person into a quadriplegic literally over night. Mobility Awareness is an organization that assists people suffering like Jacob by providing their families with a specially equipped van to transport them to doctors appointments and daily treatments. Because there are many people in need, each year the Mobility Awareness CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 group conducts a campaign to receive votes for deserving individuals. Because he is so young and because his father is the sole care giver for Jacob; you can imagine the hardship they both have to face. Mentally and emotionally strong, these two; Jacob and his Dad, have faced each challenge with courage and resolve. You, our readers, have gotten Jacob to within a few thousand votes of making the cut off for consideration to receive this badly needed van. Now we need you to put him over the top. Go on your computer and enter; http://www.mobilityawarenessmonth.co m/local-heroes/. Once you are on that sight press Vote_Now for Jacob OHern. Jacob lives in Pavo, Georgia. You will be given a password and that will enable you to vote every day until the contest expires. This sounds much more difficult than it truly is. Spending an extra minute a day on your computer could make a huge difference in the life of Jacob and his family. I know I can count on our residents and my readers outside of the Cherrywood community to have the compassion and care to do this. Every vote counts. I thank you so very much for your help.

Each racer takes turns throwing a giant dice and moves his/her horse that many spaces on the track. You can imagine how much fun this is as favorites fall behind and dark horses pull to the front. The only thing we can be sure of in this contest is that a mudder has no advantage. There will be contests; 50/50 drawings; fun and excitement for everyone. Bring your refreshments; bring your friends; bring your family but for sure; bring yourself. This is a wonderful event for fellowship and friendship; dont miss it. Remember tickets are not required.Move Night f eature Last V egasOn the first Tuesday night of each month at 7, the clubhouse becomes a movie theater for our residents. This months date is May 6 when our featured movie will be Last Vegas starring Michael Douglas; Robert DeNiro; Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline. Join these four men as they head for Las Vegas, Nevada, for a bachelor party to celebrate the marriage of the last single person in the group. While they try to party hearty they find that the years have crept up and nature isnt kind. You can imagine the trouble these four can get into in sin city. The action and situations are hilarious and will have you rolling in the aisles. Fortunately for us what happened in Las Vegas didnt stay in Last Vegas. Comfortable pool side chairs are available; pop corn and lemonade are free to all guests and the atmosphere is comfortable in our climate controlled clubhouse. Join your neighbors for this free evening of top rated entertainment. You are welcome to bring your own candy; refreshments and drinks so there is no reason to not come out and join us. Line Dancing schedule c hangeDont panic; its only for the first T uesday of the month. There will be no line dancing class on Tuesday May 6, because of Movie Night at Cherrywood. Instead, the class will be meeting on Wednesday May 7 at 7 p.m. Each month on the first Tuesday we show a movie in the clubhouse so line dancing has to be moved to Wednesday This monthly change allows our dancers to meet every week to learn and practice their moves. Cher Mason is a great teacher showing concern for all of her students and patience too. At 7 the beginners get her full attention to learn terms and steps. At 7:30 the advanced or experienced dancers join in to learn something new. Many of the advanced dancers join the beginners to keep up to speed with the class and they are welcome to take part. Dancing is very beneficial to your health. Not only does it give your body a work out but learning the steps involved keeps your mind sharp as well. We are fortunate to have an instructor of the caliber of Cher who shares her knowledge and enthusiasm with our students. Classes are free thanks to Chris and Mario Zacco of Cherrywood P roperty Management. Take advantage of these fun classes and dont forget to bring your bottle of water.Shred your documentsHelp prevent identity theft by shredding all of your unwanted personal documents. On Friday, May 9, Enviro-shred will be at our clubhouse to assist you in securing your private information. Between the hours of 1 and 3 p.m., you can bring your papers to the clubhouse and watch as they are shredded by this professional and efficient company. There is a nominal fee for each box of paper work they destroy but it is well worth the money. Many people dont realize that when they throw something into the trash, it becomes fair game for anyone who wants to sift through the bags and obtain private information. That is just one of the ways identities are stolen. We urge you not to throw papers out that contain your credit card info; social security number; name; age; bank info; address etc. Contact Geri for further information about safely getting rid of your old files. Veterans Club Golf T ournamentDont forget that Saturday June 7, is the date set aside for our Veterans Club first Golf Open at beautiful Ocala Palms Golf and Country Club. Golfers will start with a hearty pancake breakfast. After that they will move onto the course for 18 holes of exciting golf with cart. F ollowing the game, everyone will go to the hole number 19 for a delicious luncheon. As if that were not enough, we will hold a silent auction; prizes will be awarded for closest to the hole; hole in one; and best scores etc. Each golfer will receive a gift packet with some valuable items just prior to the start of the game and a courtesy cart will make the rounds with liquid refreshments for our players. Be part of the fun as you enjoy the challenging and beautiful Ocala Palms course. Sand traps and water hazards protect the perfectly manicured greens and tightly trimmed fairways giving golfers of every level of expertise a chance to perfect their game. All of this can be yours for a $50 donation per player. Dont miss out on this spectacular golfing event. Remember our tournament is open to both men and women but there are limited spaces available. Gather your foursome; threesome; twosome or just sign up yourself by calling Rich Hurley at 873-7208 or John Everlove at 509-4428 to reserve your place. The Veterans Club of Cherr ywood is a tax exempt 501 C organization that uses their funds to support Patriot Dog Project; Ritz House for Homeless V eterans; Support our Soldiers; Fisher House; Wounded W arrior; Special Operations and many other Veterans char ities.Golf Sponsorships a vailab le For the past several weeks your V eterans Club has been asking for businesses; organizations and individuals to CHERRY WOODCONTINUED FROM P AGE 13 More of the hobos at the Cherrywood clubhouse.

Dr. Deb will be the instructor and everyone who knows her is aware of what a great teacher she is. Get your bathing suits on and join her at 11:30 a.m. in our beautiful pool for a low impact work out. Water Aerobics is a great way to keep your body in good condition and to tone your muscles.

These gatherings are free to our residents and offer some top notch entertainment; fun activities and excellent food. Our first in this years line up of festivals is June 9 starting at 5 p.m. This event is Hawaiian themed and geared to the relaxed ambiance of the islands. Our star entertainers will be the very talented and beloved Dawn and Steve Hendrickson playing their steel drums. They have been here before and impressed everyone so much that theyve been invited back. What could be better to put us in an island frame of mind than the music of this duet? If you need more to entice you, how about an entre of succulent and juicy pulled pork complimented with yams and a delicious tropical fruit salad. This is a menu for a perfect Luau meal. Island casual is the dress code for this fun party so get out your muumuu; grass skirt or Hawaii flowery shirt and join in the fun. Rumor has it that there will be some Hula dancers performing also.

Each racer takes turns throwing a giant dice and moves his/her horse that many spaces on the track. You can imagine how much fun this is as favorites fall behind and dark horses pull to the front. The only thing we can be sure of in this contest is that a mudder has no advantage. There will be contests; 50/50 drawings; fun and excitement for everyone. Bring your refreshments; bring your friends; bring your family but for sure; bring yourself. This is a wonderful event for fellowship and friendship; dont miss it. Remember tickets are not required.Move Night f eature Last V egasOn the first Tuesday night of each month at 7, the clubhouse becomes a movie theater for our residents. This months date is May 6 when our featured movie will be Last Vegas starring Michael Douglas; Robert DeNiro; Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline. Join these four men as they head for Las Vegas, Nevada, for a bachelor party to celebrate the marriage of the last single person in the group. While they try to party hearty they find that the years have crept up and nature isnt kind. You can imagine the trouble these four can get into in sin city. The action and situations are hilarious and will have you rolling in the aisles. Fortunately for us what happened in Las Vegas didnt stay in Last Vegas. Comfortable pool side chairs are available; pop corn and lemonade are free to all guests and the atmosphere is comfortable in our climate controlled clubhouse. Join your neighbors for this free evening of top rated entertainment. You are welcome to bring your own candy; refreshments and drinks so there is no reason to not come out and join us. Line Dancing schedule c hangeDont panic; its only for the first T uesday of the month. There will be no line dancing class on Tuesday May 6, because of Movie Night at Cherrywood. Instead, the class will be meeting on Wednesday May 7 at 7 p.m. Each month on the first Tuesday we show a movie in the clubhouse so line dancing has to be moved to Wednesday This monthly change allows our dancers to meet every week to learn and practice their moves. Cher Mason is a great teacher showing concern for all of her students and patience too. At 7 the beginners get her full attention to learn terms and steps. At 7:30 the advanced or experienced dancers join in to learn something new. Many of the advanced dancers join the beginners to keep up to speed with the class and they are welcome to take part. Dancing is very beneficial to your health. Not only does it give your body a work out but learning the steps involved keeps your mind sharp as well. We are fortunate to have an instructor of the caliber of Cher who shares her knowledge and enthusiasm with our students. Classes are free thanks to Chris and Mario Zacco of Cherrywood P roperty Management. Take advantage of these fun classes and dont forget to bring your bottle of water.Shred your documentsHelp prevent identity theft by shredding all of your unwanted personal documents. On Friday, May 9, Enviro-shred will be at our clubhouse to assist you in securing your private information. Between the hours of 1 and 3 p.m., you can bring your papers to the clubhouse and watch as they are shredded by this professional and efficient company. There is a nominal fee for each box of paper work they destroy but it is well worth the money. Many people dont realize that when they throw something into the trash, it becomes fair game for anyone who wants to sift through the bags and obtain private information. That is just one of the ways identities are stolen. We urge you not to throw papers out that contain your credit card info; social security number; name; age; bank info; address etc. Contact Geri for further information about safely getting rid of your old files. Veterans Club Golf T ournamentDont forget that Saturday June 7, is the date set aside for our Veterans Club first Golf Open at beautiful Ocala Palms Golf and Country Club. Golfers will start with a hearty pancake breakfast. After that they will move onto the course for 18 holes of exciting golf with cart. F ollowing the game, everyone will go to the hole number 19 for a delicious luncheon. As if that were not enough, we will hold a silent auction; prizes will be awarded for closest to the hole; hole in one; and best scores etc. Each golfer will receive a gift packet with some valuable items just prior to the start of the game and a courtesy cart will make the rounds with liquid refreshments for our players. Be part of the fun as you enjoy the challenging and beautiful Ocala Palms course. Sand traps and water hazards protect the perfectly manicured greens and tightly trimmed fairways giving golfers of every level of expertise a chance to perfect their game. All of this can be yours for a $50 donation per player. Dont miss out on this spectacular golfing event. Remember our tournament is open to both men and women but there are limited spaces available.

Our first in this years line up of festivals is June 9 starting at 5 p.m. This event is Hawaiian themed and geared to the relaxed ambiance of the islands. Our star entertainers will be the very talented and beloved Dawn and Steve Hendrickson playing their steel drums. They have been here before and impressed everyone so much that theyve been invited back. What could be better to put us in an island frame of mind than the music of this duet? If you need more to entice you, how about an entre of succulent and juicy pulled pork complimented with yams and a delicious tropical fruit salad. This is a menu for a perfect Luau meal. Island casual is the dress code for this fun party so get out your muumuu; grass skirt or Hawaii flowery shirt and join in the fun. Rumor has it that there will be some Hula dancers performing also.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com There were several down and outers for the first Hobo Dance at Cherrywood. These well dressed vagabonds wore their finest duds complete with patches on their britches and hats with holes. Everyone had a great time and it looks like this will be a returning annual event. The Activities Team under the leadership of Eve Houghtaling cooked up a special Hobo Stew to be served as the main course. The meat was tender and delicious and gobbled up by everyone. The veggies were a great addition to the meal also; adding flavor, color and even nutrition. All of the guests brought their own dish to use for the meal and varying from military mess kits to tin cans. It was fun to see the imaginations of our hobo residents at work. Our own Richard Becotte provided the music for this party putting everyone in a good mood and getting them up dancing. At their request, our line dancers got in several tunes that allowed them to show their steps. To watch the large group on the floor dancing in perfect unison was quite a sight. Donna Moran, won best costume and Pia Dean won one of the 50/50 raffle prizes that were awarded adding some more fun and excitement to the evening. Next year we expect an even larger turn out for this very informal and fun dance.Dont miss Derby DayExcitement is building for our Derby Day celebration scheduled for this Saturday, May 3. The clubhouse doors open at 5 p.m. and admission is free to all Cherrywood residents; no tickets needed. You wont want to miss seeing the race on our big screen as you root for your favorite horse or jockey. Ladies decorate your bonnets and put them into the hat contest. Judges will decide who has the most beautiful or original hat and prizes will be awarded. Last year the competition was really tough so dont spare the horses in your decorations. While youre at this festive event sample a mint julep or other libation that is befitting of the race. A few of those traditional cocktails and youll be in the mood to run the race yourself. If youd prefer to have a different drink: feel free to bring your own. Immediately following the big race, our clubhouse gets transformed into a paddock for our own horses. These wooden cut-outs of race horses are all numbered and decorated with different colors. Hobos swarm at the Cherrywood clubhouse Some of the hobos at the Cherrywood clubhouse. PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 Cherrywood John Everlove See Geri to get your free tickets and plan on a very fun and entertaining evening.Memorial DayYour Veterans Club will be hosting its annual Memorial Day celebration on Friday, May 30 at 11 a.m. While the rest of the country moved Memorial Day to the last Monday of May; your Veterans Club has opted to celebrate the original Memorial Day each May 30. This solemn service honors the memories of those who died in defense of our nation from the Revolutionary War right through to the War on Terror. It is a day of remembering those who have fallen in service to their country and honoring their sacrifice. In addition, we honor the families of those who died. Their loss and suffering is shared by all grateful Americans. Join our Color Guard; our Veterans Club Officers; widows; volunteers and special guest speaker as we pay tribute to those who have given their all for us. Immediately following the service, an All American lunch will be served in the clubhouse. Our menu includes hamburgers and hot dogs cooked on the grill with beans and other side dishes. You are welcome to bring your own beverage or enjoy the iced tea and lemonade that will be available. Music will be played by Rich Becotte so you can party; dance and enjoy the life that has been given to us by our fallen heroes. We owe it to them to remember and to share good times with friends and loved ones. Our Memorial Day service is open to everyone for no charge. Lunch tickets are just $7 per person with all proceeds going to the Cherrywood Veterans Club. See Geri or any Veterans Club Officer for your tickets.From your reporterOn behalf of myself and the OHern family, I would like to express my sincere thanks to all of you who have been helping Freds grandson Jacob. Several weeks ago I shared Jacobs story with you but let me refresh your memory and introduce him to new readers. Two years ago Jacob OHern was going to enlist in the Armed Forces. Tragically, he was involved in an auto accident and suffered a fractured spine. The injury made this strong healthy young person into a quadriplegic literally over night. Mobility Awareness is an organization that assists people suffering like Jacob by providing their families with a specially equipped van to transport them to doctors appointments and daily treatments. Because there are many people in need, each year the Mobility Awareness CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 group conducts a campaign to receive votes for deserving individuals. Because he is so young and because his father is the sole care giver for Jacob; you can imagine the hardship they both have to face. Mentally and emotionally strong, these two; Jacob and his Dad, have faced each challenge with courage and resolve. You, our readers, have gotten Jacob to within a few thousand votes of making the cut off for consideration to receive this badly needed van. Now we need you to put him over the top. Go on your computer and enter; http://www.mobilityawarenessmonth.co m/local-heroes/. Once you are on that sight press Vote_Now for Jacob OHern. Jacob lives in Pavo, Georgia. You will be given a password and that will enable you to vote every day until the contest expires. This sounds much more difficult than it truly is. Spending an extra minute a day on your computer could make a huge difference in the life of Jacob and his family. I know I can count on our residents and my readers outside of the Cherrywood community to have the compassion and care to do this. Every vote counts. I thank you so very much for your help.

It is May and I didnt accomplish all I wanted to get done in April. You will notice activities in Oak Run are slowing down and more people at the pool. It doesnt seem as though traffic is much lighter even though many of our residents head north. The ongoing events which we all appreciate in the summer are the Donut-Drop In, Pancake breakfast, Bingo, Movie night and some club activities. I hope to see you at one of these activities. Read on for what is happening in Oak Run. Laura Garden Club newsOur next meeting Wednesday, May 7 of the Oak Run Garden Club is a planned field trip. We will visit the Marion County Sheriffs Office Jail Inmate Farm located on Maricamp Road. Meet at the overflow parking lot at 9:15 a.m. and we will carpool to the farm. Our tour will begin at 10 a.m. and we will travel by tram to see the current vegetables and fruits growing there, tilapia fish farm, poultry, swine, and cattle. The purpose of the farm is to reduce overall cost by providing food for the inmates and the inmates learn skills that can be used after they serve their time. After the tour we will have lunch (on your own) at Scrambles Restaurant located at 3233 SE Maricamp Road. On our last field trip April 9 a large group of our members enjoyed a Singing River Tour of the Rainbow and Withlacoochee Rivers on a pontoon boat. After the boat tour we had a delicious lunch at the Blue Gator restaurant in Dunnellon.

Erica worked to gather the first books and set up procedures for the library. Erica has continued to work as a librarian all these years and should be commended for her hard work and diligence. With summer coming and snowbirds leaving and others vacationing and visiting families, the library is in need of more volunteers. Please ask the librarian at the desk for an application form and you will be asked to come in after library hours for training. Then, you will be assigned to work with two librarians. After this training is completed, you will go on our sub list for the day captains to call you to work. If you want a regular schedule, please mention it to your trainer and she will put you on that list. A regular librarian works a shift of 9 12; 12 3; or 3 5 every other week so it isnt too much of your time. For those of you traveling this summer, remember paperback books can be signed out without any return date. So, if you will be gone for 3 or 4 weeks, you can take as many as 10 paperbacks with you. Or, you can purchase used books at our book sale on May 10 at the donut drop in. Paperbacks are just ten cents and hard back books are just a dollar.Reach outReach Out is the volunteer group of neighbors helping neighbors. We presently offer help in minor home repairs, computer and TV hookups, replacing light bulbs in ceiling fixtures or lamp posts. There is no charge, but donations will be accepted and passed on to charities in this area. Also available is transportation to medical appointments. For more information of if interested in volunteering, please call Dan Blevins at 433-4338.Well that is it for this week. Keep being kind and smiling.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Ioften comment to my husband how complicated our lives are living in the present age. Today you have to be somewhat of a computer genius as you wend your way through the supermarket with your smart phone downloading facts and recipes and picking up your deli order you ordered on line. A laser device scans your items at the check out and everybody uses reusable shopping totes for purchases. Todays supermarket carries all sorts of items from ethnic foods to mops and soaps, produce, bakery, dairy, meat, canned goods and everything in between. Super these places are but growing up as a young Jewish girl in New Britain, CT in the early s, things were a lot different. Our local Jewish shopping districts main street was called Hartford Avenue. Even back in the early s, the once central area of Jewish settlement was going into decay. As in many urban areas in the Northeast, the black population was moving in, as the Jews were moving out. Nevertheless, there were still stores frequented by Jewish shoppers in the days before the supermarket. My favorite was Cherniaks deli. Step into this store with its wooden floors and dusty shelves of canned goods hardly anyone bought because the main attraction here were the kosher sliced luncheon meats. We always seemed to hit this place at 5 p.m., close enough to dinnertime that the mere aroma of salami would make my mouth water. Mr. Cherniak would always offer me a slice, which I would eat greedily while my eyes would wander over to the big barrels of half sour pickles. A pickle for a nickel I used to quip and on occasion I would be rewarded with one of the garlicky delights. My mother would also purchase hot dogs with their casings intact, coleslaw and whole smoked whitefish. Across the street was the kosher butcher shop. It still remember the black and white tiled floor and white interior. Bachrachs was a very clean store and all the meats were neatly displayed in glass display cases. My favorites were the lamb chops, the kind that had the whole chop plus an end piece, a cut I have not seen in probably fifty years. Nothing prepackaged here and everything was cut and slaughtered according to Jewish ritual. I tried not to think about the back room where I knew they hung the forequarters of beef on meat hooks above the sawdust strewed wooden floor. Even with this information, I still enjoyed hamburgers and steaks. A few blocks down was the kosher bakery, Cousins. Here my mother would buy challah for Shabbat and rye bread for the deli. You could get a loaf of the chewy stuff for 25 cents. They were also famous for their bagels. I remember the bakery clerk giving my baby sister one to chew on as we made our bakery selections. What made a Jewish bakery unique was that no lard was used in baking. Today, health conscious shoppers prefer all-vegetable shortening but back in the s, it was harder to find places and products that featured kosher shortening. We always left the shop with a half dozen of my favorite donuts, plain with a chocolate stripe on top, filled with buttercream. Not exactly a healthy choice but they sure were good! Our last stop was Marty Sidoyians produce shop. Marty was not Jewish but Armenian and catered to a Jewish crowd. Of course everything was sold in bulk from wooden baskets much like you see at the wayside produce stands here in Florida. Unlike today when eating a variety of foods from different cultures is a way of life, back in the s it was not so popular to cross ethnic boundaries. I often wanted my mother to buy okra but she said that was something black people ate and I never tasted it until I was well into adulthood. There were other vegetables more indigenous to the South and what we would now call soul food since the greengrocer also sold to the black population who were rapidly moving into the area. Still, if I could have a sweet red pepper or two I was content. Things have certainly changed in the years I have described. The world is older, faster and more impersonal. Still I wouldnt trade my modern supermarket for the time consuming store hopping method my mother used to patronize. Nor would I have put my baby sister in a car seat unsecured by a seatbelt as we did in those days riding back from our shopping trips. But those were the times we lived in, nostalgic to be sure, but not necessarily better. Still the past has a powerful hold on us. When news leaked recently that an iconic Connecticut Jewish supermarket was in financial trouble, a few Jewish philanthropists stepped forward and bought the store to keep the tradition going with plans to modernize and improve the stores wares for todays Jewish consumer. Just like Judaism itself, always evolving, the traditions live on in new ways and in new packaging but the taste is still the same, perhaps even better.

Linking these 13 rich, luminous stories is largerthan-life Olive, who is thoroughly unlikeable when the novel opens but soon grows on the reader. Chronologically the stories make us aware of a woman growing old, the range of her memory playing over the terrain traversed. Although usually dismissive of her fellow townspeople, dubbing them flub-dub, and hellion, and moron, she slowly comes to appreciate their merits. In Basket Full of Trips, storekeeper Marlene learns of her husbands infidelity after he dies but still finds his obsession with trips he would never take heartbreaking. Olive seems to see her for the first time when she says, An innocent, Olive thinks, gazing at the woman. A real one. You dont find them anymore. Boy, you dont. In Tulips, the woman Olive had labeled a rich snob emerges as an admirable match for the strongwilled protagonist. Louise Larkin knows Olive likes hearing of other peoples problems, and she has recently had her share. Still, she calls Olive on her disingenuous sympathy visit:You came here for a nice dose of schadenfreude, and it didnt work. Story by story the scales fall from Olives eyes. She has squandered the years with her saintly late husband Henry, she has misunderstood her son, misjudged her neighbors, and deceived herself. But even if the novels subjects are discontent, waste, betrayal, sorrow, and fear, the voice at the close is composed, chastened, rueful, and ironic. There is finally a note of confirmation. And for readers theres a happy ending of sorts when the crusty math teacher finds contentment where she least expected it. Highly recommended.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com For a very brief time last week I was under the impression I was all caught up. Dont you like the feeling that comes knowing you are up to date and everything is accomplished? I do, I just do not experience it enough. It was entirely my own fault. I was gloating over the fact I had accomplished everything on my to-do-list and had some time to spare. Spare time is a rare commodity these days, at least for me. I do not even have spare change and it has been months since I have seen my spare tire. Time is a different matter altogether. Just when I think I have a little spare time on my hands, I find it slipping through my fingers. As I said, I was gloating over the fact I was all caught up. Being in a rather cheerful mood, I thought I would look at my calendar. I do not look at my calendar that often. It is so depressing, always telling me what to do. I hate it when somebody tells me what to do. My calendar looks at me and I look back and it simply says, do this. And there it is in black and white. What else can I do? Without actually thinking the issue through carefully, I opened up my calendar and discovered something quite startling. It takes a whole lot to startle me. In fact, it takes a whole lot just to get me started on anything. However, I looked at my calendar and was woefully startled. I noticed on my calendar it was the month of May. What happened to March and April? In fact, what happened to January and February? I should have gotten a hint with all the rain we had in April. Remember that little line that goes, April showers bring May flowers? While I was focused on the showers in April, I did not notice that April was exhausting itself and May was sneaking around the corner to surprise me. Boy, did it surprise me. I guess I was just too occupied during the month of April to realize that April has a time limit. April has 30 days and when those 30 days are kaput, April is over and it is May. I do not think May is any different from any other month. It is just that I wish the months would slow down a little bit. It seems at the beginning of the month everything is going rather slowly and then when you hit the middle of the month the days must go into some kind of panic and race towards the end. Why these days of the month have to hasten towards the remainder of the month is something I will never wrap my head around. If I were a swearing man, I would swear it was still February. I believe there ought to be a month, at least one month in the year, where there are like And very suddenly, the calendar has turned to May 75 to 80 days. Why be so legalistic about all of this? Why be so judgmental? Every day of the month insists it will only be around for 24 hours. Not 25 hours. Not even 20 hours. But every day insists on being around for 24 hours and then it disappears. Now, where does it go? When I go on a vacation, I know where I am going and the sad part of my vacation is at the end of the vacation I come back. Now where does time go? And, why doesnt it ever return. For instance. I am thinking of celebrating my 37th birthday this year. I am not 37 years old, but I cannot remember what I did on my 37th birthday. I think that if I cannot remember what happened on my 37th birthday, I should be able to repeat it. Why cant I go back and be 37 for just one day? I do not need to be 37 forever, just one day! But no, Father Time has made a rule that you can only be 37 one day out of the year and you can never repeat that, ever again. Of course, there was Jack Benny who was 39 all his life. I noticed in my calendar there were many items that needed doing. As I looked at them, I realized I had done them the month before. Some things are so insistent that you do them every month. My electric bill, for instance. Why do I have to pay that every month? Why cant the electric company give me a vacation once a year? Another thing that bothers me. When I am having a good time at whatever I am doing, why does time pass so quickly? I remember in school the time leading up to recess went ever so slow and I never thought it would arrive. Once I got out to recess, it went so quickly I had to return to class almost before I left the classroom. What is that all about? I took a little bit of time to think about what good old King Solomon said about the subject. To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Time is a commodity either you spend it or lose it. The bad part is once you lose it you can never get it back. Enjoy today, its the only today you have.Rev. James L.

Events at VFW Post 4781 May Is International Internal Audit Awareness Month, a time to promote the internal audit profession to all audit customers and others in the business community. Perhaps its the time to get ready for an IRS audit that some of us may have to experience. To me, theres no accounting for Pun Alley stories that look at auditors and accountants.Cant hideThe CEO and CFO were perplexed. They thought they had hidden all of the unusual transactions for the past year and were sure that the auditors would never discover their fraudulent practices. On the last day of the audit, one of the audit staff that the CEO and CFO did not recognize came in with all of the transactions that the devious pair had covered up. Obviously they were shaken. Finally the CFO said, How did the audit firm discover these transactions? Without batting an eye the man said, Audit firm? Im with the NSA.JumpyAn auditor was crossing a road when a frog called out to him and said, If you kiss me, Ill turn into a beautiful princess. He picked up the frog and put it in his pocket. The frog spoke up again and said, If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week. The auditor ignored the frog. Then the frog cried out, If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, Ill stay with you and do anything you want. The auditor took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and put it back. Finally, the frog asked, What is the matter? Ive told you Im a beautiful princess that will stay with you and do anything you want. Why wont you kiss me? The auditor said, Look Im an auditor. I dont have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now thats cool.Sleep on itAn accountant was having a hard time sleeping and went to see his doctor. Doctor, I just cant get to sleep at night. Have you tried counting sheep? Thats the problem. I make a mistake and then spend three hours trying to find itShort To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the accountant, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be. A private detective was hired to find a company accountant, and asked, Is he tall or short? The boss answered, Both! The cannibal audit practice charged an arm and a leg. An accountant is someone who solves a problem you didnt know you had in a way you dont understand. The Form 1040 means that for every $50 you earn, you get $40, the IRS gets $10. The accountant just went into business with Ford. They make the cars; he makes the license plates. Homeless accountants live in a tax shelter. The company accountant is shy and retiring. Hes shy a quarter of a million dollars. Thats why hes retiring. Old accountants never die. They just lose their balance. Income Tax Auditor: Mrs. Fredericks, whats your husbands average income? Mrs. Fredericks: Oh, about midnight.It adds upA businessman was interviewing applicants for the position of Divisional Manager. He devised a simple test to select the most suitable person for the job. He asked each applicant the question, What is two and two? The first interviewee was a journalist. His answer was twenty-two. The second applicant was an engineer. He pulled out a calculator and showed the answer to be between 3.999999 and 4.000001. The next person was a lawyer. He stated that in the case of Jenkins v. Commer of Stamp Duties, two and two was proven to be four. The last applicant was an accountant. The businessman asked him, How much is two and two? The accountant got up from his chair, went over to the door, closed it then came back and sat down. He leaned across the desk and said in a low voice, How much do you want it to be?NSA again?The clerk walks into the bosss office and said, The auditors have just left, sir. Have they finished checking the books? asked the boss. Very thoroughly, was the reply. Well, what did they say, said the boss. They want 15 percent to keep quiet.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 2, 2014 Just to be clear, I may have been wrong. Of course, thats nothing new for a political commentator, although usually we dont have to admit we were mistaken. I have been among the herd-followers who have argued that Obamacare might do in the Democrats chances in this years elections for control of the Senate, with Republicans wasting no chance whatsoever to tarnish their opponents with the Affordable Care Act. Now, however, Im beginning to waver (another privilege that goes with this job). There are some indications that the GOP and its mega-rich supporters may be overplaying their one-card hand. No, this vacillation is not prompted by the news that the administrations Affordable Care Act participation projections have been exceeded, with 8 million sign-ups so far, including a respectable chunk of those highvalue low-age enrollees. Nor is it influenced at all by President Barack Obamas declaration that, This thing might be working. Thank you for sharing, Mr. President, but your opinion is not affecting mine. Instead, there are some glimmers out there that might shed some new light on appropriate strategies for this years campaigning. The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that one-third of the online respondents say they favor the Democrats approach to health care, versus 18 percent who prefer the Republicans. Thats an increase for the White House and a down figure for the GOP Of course, 40 percent of those participating had no earthly idea which party had which plan, which is a bummer, but it shows a slight upward trend for the Dems. In February, Obamacare approval was at 25 percent. If that momentum continues, it could mean that people are starting to get weary of the Republicans incessant hammering on the subject. In the House, theyve passed more than 50 bills that would repeal or sabotage health-care reform, and maybe its time to cool their jets. Couple that with the barrage of TV ads already flooding us from well-financed conservative groups trashing Democrats for having anything to do with Obamacare, and maybe, just maybe, a growing number of voters are wondering whether the GOP will stop long enough to reveal a credible alternative. Dont hold your breath. Added to the mix is the reality that some of the reforms are widely popular. So the president and his people are trying to shore up some enthusiasm for playing offense instead of defense. Their argument is that while the rollout was a well-documented disaster, repairs have been made and the new health system is starting to gain traction. That may be premature, but its food for thought for candidates in his party who were abandoning what they perceived to be Obamas sinking ship. Instead of saying, Health-care plan? What health-care plan? they suddenly might recall, Oh yeah, that health-care plan. As for the Republicans, there is no shortage of controversies, so they can have plenty of other issues with which to scorch the midterm election earth between now and November. Now I have contended both that health care means the Democrats are in deep trouble and also that perhaps theyre not. Its ideal: Whatever the outcome, Ill be correct and can brag about it. (c) 2014 Bob Franken Distributed by King Features Synd. There were a couple of stories coming out of the Sheriffs Office last week that, frankly, made me both sad and mad to read. They both involved swindles and/or theft from senior citizens. The second one was the old secret shopper scam. Someone gets chosen to be a secret shopper and receives a money order. Theyre told to deposit the money order in their bank, buy money cards and send the numbers of the money cards by e-mail to someone, who then cashes out the money cards, before the victims bank notifies them that the money order was fraudulent. In this case, the 66-year-old woman from Southwest Ocala was taken for $992. But by the time I got to the second story, the first one already had me boiling. In this one, someone who had access to the 86-year-old victims checks wrote checks for more than $70,000, draining the mans bank account. This theft came to light when the mans son, who lives in California, got a call from his dad saying he needed money to pay for groceries. The son knew that there should have been plenty of money in the account, and did some checking. He finally flew out to the Southwest Ocala mans home and took him to the Sheriffs substation to file a complaint. So once again we have to issue warnings, and if you take nothing else away from reading our newspaper, please, please pay attention. First, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The secret shopper scam has been around forever. It seems like easy money, but the only thing easy about it is how easy your bank account can get wiped out. Dont be looking for a quick buck from promotions like these. Whatever you do, never pay money to get something you didnt ask for. Along the same lines, remember that you cant win a sweepstakes or a foreign lottery if you didnt enter it. If you get notification that you have won, tear it up and throw it away. Chances are that somewhere down the road theyll want you to send some money for taxes or some other thing, and youll never see the prize. Second, be careful who you let into your house. If you must hire someone to clean, go through reputable agencies, preferably those who advertise in the newspaper. Dont answer individual classified ads, whether in the newspaper or online. Theres no guarantee that the people advertising in this manner are legitimate. If you do let someone in to do handyman work or cleaning, make sure you know where they are every minute. It only takes a moment for a trained thief to grab your checkbook most crooks know where to find them, no matter how well you try to hide them. Make sure you keep them far away from where you store your jewelry, too. Taking items and pawning them is a quick buck for the thieves. And if you have elderly parents, please be vigilant when it comes to their finances. It may not be easy, but get their permission to constantly monitor how they spend their money. Save yourself and your relatives some grief by being alert and not getting taken in by the crooks. Theyre everywhere out there dont help them out.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Chances are, a week ago, there are many of you who didnt know the name Donald Sterling, or that he was the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association. Probably even fewer of you knew who V. Stiviano was. But a picture of Stiviano with Magic Johnson on Instagram and the subsequent rant, allegedly by Sterling, has set off a firestorm of reaction across the country, and not just in sports circles. Stiviano is Sterlings girlfriend, and the two had a telephone conversation that was somehow recorded in which Sterling allegedly tells her not to bring African American guests to Clippers games and not to post pictures of her with African Americans. According to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, the process of authenticating the phone call is complete, and Sterling admitted it is his voice. At a press conference on Tuesday, Silver banned Sterling from the NBA for life. He also said he will ask the other owners to force Sterling to sell the team, a power that Silver evidently does not have. You have to ask, however, about the background of the recording. Is it legal in California to tape a phone conversation if one of the parties doesnt know its being recorded? Was Sterling deliberately being goaded into making incriminating statements? It sure sounds that way when you listen to the entire conversation. Who released it? Stiviano says she didnt. She, by the way, is being sued by Sterlings estranged wife because of gifts she received. The Clippers rebounded nicely from a defeat on Sunday to win Game 5 on Tuesday night, putting them only one win away from taking the series. The big question now, however, is what will Sterling do? The vote to oust him seems to be a foregone conclusion, and may have been completed by the time you read this. Sterling, however, is a lawyer known for litigating anything and everything. He has even refused to pay coaches he fired even though they had years left on their contracts. The possibility of transferring ownership to his estranged wife has been raised. Can he do that? Does the league have the right to ban his whole family, when he is the only one accused of wrongdoing. This case, obviously, isnt over. The basketball world waits to see what Sterling will do next. Theres only one thing that will make this go away and thats a big For Sale sign on the outside of Clippers offices. Help the young manWere aware that some readers only read the news that interests them, particularly when it comes to the items from the various communities. However, this week, we refer you to the Cherrywood column, particularly the last segment titled From Your Reporter. It chronicles the movement to get enough votes for a paralyzed young man so he can get a new van to increase his mobility. It seems like a good cause, and it wont cost you anything, so please refer to that column and follow the directions. You can help a young man in need of better transportation.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

For our 2014 Spring concert, Matthew Bumbach, MCC Conductor and Director of Vocal Studies, College of Central Florida, presents Wolfgang Amadeus Mozarts Coronation Mass and Aaron Coplands Old American Songs, with guest soloists and pianist Ricky Hendrix. The Civic Chorales concert balances the sacred music of the classical era with the light hearted beauty of traditional American songs. Mozart wrote the Mass in C major (1779) simply as a short Ordinary of the mass; it later acquired its Coronation title when it was performed at the 1791 coronation of Leopold II, King of Bohemia. Coplands Old American Songs, originally set for solo voices, maintains its fun nature in this re-orchestration for choir.

Marion County Commissioner Stan McClain, Sierra Club activist Whitey Markle and Williston attorney Beth Gordon will discuss this issue when the May 9 Friday Forum of Marion County explores the environmental and property rights ramifications of the pipeline planned to run from Alabama through Georgia and western Marion County south to Osceola County. Invitations have also been extended to State Senator Charlie Dean and Dunnellon Mayor Nathan Whitt. Barbara Schwartz, secretary of the Silver Springs Alliance, will moderate. According to the April 26 Georgia Moultrie Observer the EPA, after citizen comment, has raised questions about potential threats to water, land, air and wildlife with the Federal Energy Regulation Commission which is ultimately responsible for deciding the route of the pipeline The EPA also recommended that Florida Power & Light, the end user, consider alternative methods of serving customers. These include conservation, alternative energy sources and importing liquified natural gas from Mississippi. Electricity sales peaked in 2007 with increased use of more efficient light bulbs appliances and buildings, perhaps even obviating the need for an additional pipeline. The nonpartisan speaker/ luncheon group gathers on the second Friday of each month at 11:30 a.m. at Buffet City, State Road 200 at MLK Jr. Blvd. in Ocala.

This hour Pat Wellington mainly talked about dreams. Cayce could interpret dreams. A dream about shoes or feet what one is attempting to do. Nightmare change your diet. Dreams are about you. Consider how you feel after the dream. Pat passed around a paper with instructions on how to make and use a Castor Oil Pack. If youd rather buy than make one, the website is baar.com It has been used through out the ages as a natural therapy. Castor oil applied externally in the form of packs is very popular with natural health practitioners. The Edgar Cayce Readings inform us that castor oil packs are to be used to improve assimilations, eliminations and circulation; especially of the lymphatic system.

Friday, May 2, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 4~ Friday, May 2, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be tempted to be more assertive when dealing with a job-related matter. But a carefully measured approach works best at getting the cooperation youre looking for. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) While others urge you to act now, you instinctively recognize that a move at this time is not in your best interests. You should know when to do so by weeks end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A busy schedule keeps you on the move for much of the week. But things ease up by the time the weekend arrives, allowing you to reconnect with family and friends. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Travel dominates the week, and despite some delays in getting to where you want to go, the overall experience should prove to be a positive one in many ways. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Your Leonine self-confidence comes roaring back after a brief period of doubt and helps you get through a week of demanding challenges and ultimately emerge triumphant. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Virgos who have made a major commitment personal or professional should be able to tap into a renewed reservoir of self-confidence to help them follow through. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You soon could receive news from a surprising source that could cause you to change your mind about how you had planned to deal with an ongoing job-related problem. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A surprise move of support from a colleague who has never been part of your circle of admirers helps influence others to take a new look at what youve put on the table. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) While a bold decision to take an I know what Im doing approach impresses some colleagues, it also raises the risk of causing resentment among others. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A misunderstanding twixt you and a friend might not be your fault at all, despite what he or she suggests. Talk it out to see at what point the confusion might have started. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Getting into a community operation fulfills the Aquarians need to help people. It also can lead to new contacts that might one day help you with a project. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A minor problem could delay the start of a long-anticipated trip for two. Use the time to recheck your travel plans. You might find a better way to get where youre going. 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

R otary plans rib saleScrumptious! Delicious! Succulent! 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 smoke-cooked 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.

Thats why CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and CareerSource Florida have teamed up with the Bureau of Tobacco Free Florida to support tobacco users efforts to quit. Starting Monday, job seekers visiting any of the CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion one-stop career centers will be able to learn about free resources available through the Tobacco Free Lets Shake on It program. Were seeing a wave of businesses banning use of tobacco products, that means for employees as well, said Rusty Skinner, CEO of CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion. Our staff is now empowered to promise to do whatever it takes to help job seekers quit if they are interested in that help. Upon request, placement specialists will distribute Tobacco Free Florida information and materials and will be able to make referrals to a wealth of free resources, including cessation classes, nicotine patches and/or gum. CareerSource to help job applicants kick the habit The Lets Shake on It partnership involves all 24 of Floridas workforce development region. It is built on the premise that searching for employment is already stressful and that tobacco users who are trying to quit are more successful if they have support. The program offers three free ways to quit: Talk to a Quit Coach toll-free at 877-U-CAN-NOW (822-6669). Online at www.tobaccofreeflorida.com/wbcoach. Area Health Education Center classes. Skinner noted that CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion is moving toward becoming tobacco free itself. Our administrative office and Patriot Job Connection are already tobacco free because were located at the College of Central Florida in Ocala, which is tobacco free, he said. Well be bringing a recommendation to our board in June to make all our centers tobacco free. In the meantime, Skinner emphasized that job seekers participation in the Tobacco Free Florida program is voluntary and not required to receive placement services. Our involvement in the Tobacco Free Florida initiative is to assist those who want to quit so that their tobacco habit doesnt stand in the way of meeting their career goals. Four public high schools in Marion County are nationally ranked this year by the Washington Post and US News & World Report. The national rankings, issued earlier this month, consider numerous factors independently of each other. The Washington Posts Most Challenging High Schools listing ranks Belleview High at #323 (up from 525 last year) and Vanguard High at #878 (down from 584 last year). This years prestigious list ranks 2,110 high schools nationwide. Just nine percent of approximately 22,000 US high schools made the final cut. Meantime, two other schools earned Bronze status on this years US News & World Report rankings Lake Weir High and West Port High schools. Both were also on last years list. This publication considered 31,242 schools nationwide; only 4,707 medaled, including 162 in Florida. Lake Weir and West Port are among Floridas 81 Bronze-medal recipients. Two years ago, the Washington Post revamped its rating formula and now ranks schools based on the number of college-level exams given each year -including International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP), and Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) -divided by the number of graduating seniors that year. The latest rankings are based on 2013 numbers. US News & World Report national and state rankings consider three factors performance of all students on state standards testing, performance of least-advantaged students on state standards testing, and college-readiness. Four high schools earn national rankings Chief Executive Officer Rich Mutarelli has announced the appointment of Phil A. Wright II as the new Chief Operating Officer for Munroe Regional Medical Center.
