The two were among eight assignments announced last week. Superintendent George Tomyn noted all eight appointments including four first-time principals are home-grown administrators because they all graduated from Marion County public high schools. Teresa Forsyth moves to Hammett Bowen Jr. Elementary as principal from Belleview-Santos Elementary. She is a 20-year veteran of the district, having started in 1994 as a substitute teacher of exceptional students at Oakcrest Elementary. She also taught at Osceola Middle and Wyomina Park Elementary. She became the behavior specialist there in 2001 and was named assistant principal at Wyomina Park in 2005 before moving to Belleview-Santos in 2009. Forsyths bachelors in Elementary Education comes from Saint Leo University while her masters in Education Leadership comes from Nova Southeastern University. She graduated from North Marion High School. Jennifer Sibbald moves to Liberty Middle as principal from her current coordinator position in the districts K-12 Academic Services department. After graduating from Dunnellon High, Sibbald joined MCPS in 1996 as a teacher at Dunnellon High. Ten years later, she advanced to assistant principal at Belleview High, then four years ago to the same position at North Marion High. Last year, she moved to the district for her current position. Her associate degree comes from the College of Central Florida while her bachelors in History comes from the University of Florida. Sibbald earned her masters in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University. She replaces current Principal Michelle Lewis, who is relocating out-ofstate. Long-time principal Leanna Dixon (Hammett Bowen Jr. Elementary) is retiring after working 37 years at five schools. 32~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com New principals at Hammett Bowen, Liberty Jennifer Sibbald Teresa Forsyth Three people, including a state trooper, were killed Saturday afternoon as they stood along Interstate 75 in the aftermath of a traffic accident. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Trooper Chelsea Renee Richard, 30, tow truck driver John Duggan, 57, of Williston and George Phillips, 52, were struck by a pickup truck driven by Troy T. Owens, 22, of Palatka. Richard and Duggan died at the scene. Phillips was taken to ORMC in critical condition and later died in the hospital. The original accident near mile marker 341 involved two vehicles, one of which had Phillips daughter in it. He came to the scene to help her, and was standing with Richard and Duggan when another pileup occurred nearby. Evidently immediately after that, the pickup swerved onto the shoulder, reportedly to avoid stopped traffic, and struck the troopers car and hit the three people. Richard was a nine-year veteran of the Highway Patrol and was the mother of a 4-year-old. She had been working out of the Ocala office for about a year. Her funeral was Thursday. Trooper 2 others die on I-75 BY JIM CLARK EditorThe Marion County Commission voted Tuesday to purchase the assets of Windstream Utilities, which serves areas along State Road 200, including Jasmine Plaza and Majestic Oaks. The final decision should come next month. The county cited possible commercial growth and the fact that Windstream already had commercial accounts in that area. Fire hydrants in Majestic Oaks are part of the plan. Officials said the purchase would not affect taxpayers because of the income from Windstream. In another matter, the commissioners heard from Karen Ahrman of Northeast 6th Place, who presented a petition signed by 2,700 people trying to keep Wild Waters open. She said she expects to eventually get 10,000 signatures. She said that thousands patronize Wild Waters, and added that except for when there are concerts, the Wild Waters parking lot is full and the Silver Springs lot is empty. She called the attraction a great place for families, and said that with the growth of Central Florida, we need to keep the attractions. County to buy assets of utility company along State Road 200 This is the weekend to clean out your pantries to help those in our community who may be living life suffering from hunger. On Saturday, your letter carrier will be accepting donations to our area food banks. It is easy to help. Simply hang your donation from your mailbox and your mail carrier will pick it up. Area food banks are trying to stock up for one of the busiest times of the year. School will soon be over and many children are going to be home for lunch. For many families the only source for lunch is your local food bank. Marion County has been very generous in the past. We have been number 1 in our classification for five years in a row. Mail carriers have picked up over 1.5 million pounds. Interfaith Services is used as a distributor to other agencies such as Brothers Keeper and Salvation Army along with many others. We look forward to your support again this year. Mail carriers to pick up food donations Derby hat dayIf it was the first Saturday in May, it was Kentucky Derby hat day at Cherrywood.

Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good week to look at healing bruised feelings and reestablishing weakened relationships. It's also a good week to start new projects and make new job-linked contacts. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Music and art dominate the week, giving the sensual Bovine a lot to appreciate. On the practical side, deal firmly, but fairly, with those who might try to undermine your work efforts. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Good feelings continue to flow from your recent efforts to reconnect with family and friends. But be ready to defuse a dispute before it can disrupt all that peace and harmony. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A practical view of a romanticized situation could help to clarify some of its confusing aspects before you make a decision that could be tough to undo later on. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Pay more attention to what a recent spate of workplace criticism might say about your performance and not what you think it implies about you personally. Some flexibility might be called for. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) With new information, and new promises of support (not to mention growing self-confidence), this could be a good time to restart a project you couldn't handle before. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Before you decide to close down a problemloaded project and make a fresh start with someone else, try once more to reach a compromise with your balky partner. He or she might surprise you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) While you continue earning points for your negotiating skills, be alert for an attempt to undercut your efforts. You'll need to provide solid facts and figures. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A minor health problem might cause you to ease up on your usually busy schedule. But you'll soon be back in the saddle and ready to pick up the reins and charge ahead. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) The adventurous Sea Goat might be eager to take on a new challenge. But before you do, take some time to check out previously overlooked factors. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A feeling of being overwhelmed by all that you have to do can be eased by setting priorities. Deal with the most urgent and time-sensitive situations first, and then work down the line. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Creating a calm, peaceful place for yourself in the middle of an emotional whirlpool this week starts when you, and no one else, decide to make decisions about your life. Interfaith Services is an operation located in Ocala that was created to assist the homeless and downtrodden citizens of Marion County. They operate a shelter, a thrift store, a soup kitchen, a prescription program for indigent citizens and various other services that have become a haven of hope for many. This year, the Marion County Guardian ad Litem program would like to specifically recognize and thank the staff at the Interfaith Thrift Store. The GAL volunteer is often the first to discover a need for household items for a family who is trying to make a home for a child who might otherwise end up in foster care. Many times, these well meaning people dont have the funds to be able to go out and buy the items needed to be approved to gain custody of the children. Thats when the GAL volunteer simply has to pick up the phone and call the Interfaith thrift store manager, Steve Clem, or the Executive Director, Karla Grimsley, to ask for help. Whether it is furniture, beds, clothing, linens, silverware or dishes, they have helped on multiple occasions to provide these items for our children and families. In one recent case, a grandmother who received custody of her 3 grandchildren needed almost everything because she had to move into a larger home to accommodate the children. Steve Clem provided, free of charge, a living room set, dressers for the children and a dining set. On another case, beds were needed in order for 2 children to be able to live with a relative who could not be approved without beds. Interfaith honored Friday, May 9 CF commencement setThe College of Central Florida will hold its spring 2014 commencement ceremony at 7 p.m. Friday, May 9, at First Baptist Church of Ocala, 2801 S.E.

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 lighthearted 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 Tea Party to meetThe Marion County Tea Party meets every Monday at 7 p.m. at The First Love Church, 2529 N.

Centered on a 19-year-old girls disappearance, the narrative follows the varying emotions of the panicked family. Cressida Mayfield, a shy loner, was last seen in a noisy biker bar miles from the house of her best friend with whom shed had dinner before setting out to walk home. Zeno Mayfield, the towns ex-mayor and the girls father, is a man who normally solves problems brilliantly. But now after days, weeks, and soon months slip by without a trace of his younger daughter, hes feeling frustrated and impotent. He cannot even phone Cressida because she was careless with cell phones. Shed lost at least two, both gifts from Zeno who wanted his daughters to be within calling range, if he required them. Then when bloodstains are found in Brett Kincaids car, the Iraq War veteran and former fianc of Juliet Mayfield, Cressidas older sister, becomes the prime person of interest. Once handsome and eagerly awaiting the upcoming nuptials with the love of his life, Brett had returned to Carthage disfigured and mentally damaged from a grenade attack. Over Juliets protests he breaks off the engagement, forcing the family to cancel wedding plans. At first the town is in disbelief but later accepts that wars were monstrous and made monsters of those who waged them. At this point Ill say that this large, well-written novel is for patient readers because for almost 200 pages the moaning and handwringing keep the book from moving along. But what ensues after this first section is worth hanging in there for because the reader learns that Cressida is still alive somewhere. To say anymore would give too much away. Mostly through inner monologues, Oates helps us to grasp the complex damage done to families and society by wars that seem so far away. Story centers on girls disappearance Bookmark Pat Wellington Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com World Heritage Student Exchange Programs, a highly respected nonprofit, public-benefit organization, is seeking local host families for high school boys and girls from Scandinavia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Thailand, China, South Korea and the former Soviet Republics.

With the need of so many people the organization conducts a campaign to receive votes for deserving individuals.

Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 9, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenIts a platitude we hear about politics all the time: Negative campaigns should be avoided. I dont know how to break this to everybody, but at this point in our history, its nearly all negative. Lets face it, we rarely vote for candidates. Normally, we cast our ballot against them. No wonder. As often as not, its a choice between bad and worse or worst, if theres a third party involved. Of course, this year its really about choices ... 468 of them: 435 in the House of Representatives, 33 in the Senate. But its also a singular decision that Americans will make about President Barack Obama. Hes not up for election, but he could be down if Republicans take control of the Senate along with the strong likelihood that theyll at least maintain their House majority. Then, we can pretty much kiss the Obama presidency goodbye. Any of his selections for the high offices in his administration that require advice and consent will disappear into the partisan black hole. The same goes for any legislation he might initiate. Hell be left with the power of the veto, and maybe not even that if enough frightened Democrats can be recruited for an override. Theres an unpleasant debate ongoing about Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the most ardent liberal on a Supreme Court that has already been taken over by conservatives. Shes had her share of serious health problems, and theres a clamor on the left for her to resign. Why? So Democratic President Obama can nominate a progressive to replace her. If the GOP takes the Senate, you can forget about any jurist nominated by the White House. By the way, Ginsburg says she aint going anywhere. So what are the alternatives? What do you do when you believe that all of the candidates are buffoons, or worse? How do you select between political philosophies that leave you cold? And how do you express your disgust over an election that almost certainly will be determined by big-money interests who will then control the agenda in Washington? Weve regressed from a true democracy into an oligarchy. Whats the point of voting? Why not express disapproval by staying home? Sometimes, frankly, thats the best way to demonstrate ones contempt. This is not one of those times. This year, its important to do what little each of us can do to make it as difficult as possible for various insidious forces to completely take over. Unless we really dont care whether the theocrats pass laws that govern our personal choices, we need to reject those who pander to them. Unless were perfectly happy for fewer and fewer people to control all of our wealth and leave the rest of us with nothing, we need to get out and cast our ballots. And for those who are worried that liberals are clearing the path for a government takeover, they need to vote. They already will, whipped into a frenzy over Obamacare. But on both sides, we all need to get off our butts and choose. Then we can figure out if theres any chance that our government is capable of accomplishing anything through negotiation. Or not. (c) 2014 Bob Franken Distributed by King Features Synd. Through the years, Ive caught bits and pieces of the White House Correspondents dinner. This time around, I watched almost the whole thing, five hours worth on C-SPAN. The dinner was last Saturday evening, held at some swank venue in the Washington area. There were hordes of politicians and journalists, all dressed to kill, to have a meal of hotel food and listen to what amounts to a celebrity roast from a couple of speakers, including the president himself. There were some good moments, such as the presenting of awards to journalists and the awarding of scholarships to young people. But all of this left me feeling a little bit empty. These are White House correspondents from various types of media, all come together to socialize with people they wouldnt be caught dead with the other 364 days of the year. I wonder how many of these correspondents could make it through a year in our shoes, the shoes of those who cover local meetings and incidents. How many of these people, some of whom get to ride in Air Force One, or take overseas junkets with Congressmen, could go for a week sitting through a County Commission meeting, a City Council or School Board meeting, taking pictures of a ribbon cutting, etc. All this got me thinking about ethics in journalism, and where it exists today. To be honest, it exists at our level. I remember some time ago, I was working in a town where, yes, the reporters did get along with each other. If we were free, we gathered for Dutch treat breakfasts at a coffee shop near the courthouse. Local politicians also ate here, and they would stop by the tables in the back to give some news information to all of us no favoritism. That includes some local radio stations in that area, also. Once in a while, one of them would offer to buy us a cup of coffee, but we always declined because of ethical reasons. The politicians quickly learned that we couldnt be bought with a doughnut and coffee or orange juice. We had our ethics rules, something we each shared. Yes, we were competitors, and if we were sitting on a story the others didnt know about, we didnt broadcast it until it came out in the paper. I sit back on the weekends and watch a show called the Sports Reporters on ESPN. You pick up opinions of the writers who are guests on the show, enhancing your sports knowledge. But I also wonder if, back in the day, newspapers I worked for would allow me to give my opinions anywhere except in print. I have a feeling the attitude would have been, Let the TV stations get their own reporters dont use ours. Often, I go away from this show thinking that these high-priced reporters would have a hard time functioning in my world. The old biblical saying comes to mind: No man can serve two masters. There are a couple of associations in Florida for journalists, and they have conventions and award dinners. However, you pay dearly to join the association and also to attend the convention. I wonder how many of those in Washington did the same. I chose the type of journalism we do because I feel it serves a purpose, maybe even more of a purpose than the TV news reporters or prominent newspaper journalists who cover D.C. I wouldnt want to be in the fishbowl that is Washington. And I certainly wouldnt put on a tuxedo to hear my profession mocked by the president of the United States, even if some of his jokes fell flat.Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

Well probably never know the complete story of how that terrible accident on the Interstate happened on Saturday afternoon, when three people, including a state trooper, were killed when they were struck by a passing vehicle. This does, however, seem like a good time to revisit the move over law, even though it may not apply in this case. There are two basic parts to this law: First, if you are on a multi-lane road, and there is an emergency vehicle (that includes tow trucks) stopped on the shoulder, you must move over one lane. That seems simple enough, but its amazing how many people just dont get it. This provision is several years old and obviously needs tighter enforcement. Second, if you are on a two-lane road, or perhaps traffic is such that you cant move over, you must slow down to 20 mph below the speed limit as you pass the emergency vehicle on the shoulder. That really doesnt seem too complicated to us, and yet we see this law being violated almost every day. Unfortunately, it takes two law enforcement personnel to enforce this law. One is handling a situation on the side of the road, and the other would have to be stationed just past the incident to pull over those who ignore the regulation. Many law enforcement agencies do not have the extra officers to spare to cover these emergency situations. We suspect that very few people are driving along, see the emergency vehicles, and say, The heck with it, Im not slowing down. Rather, there are two things that can happen. First is ignorance of the law, but thats hardly an excuse any more. This law has been emphasized for years now. Second, many drivers are not paying attention. Some have tunnel vision, seeing whats only in front of them and ignoring what is on each side of their vehicle. Keeping your eye on the road also involves knowing what is going on around you. The opposite is also true. Many drivers are guilty of distracted driving as they head down the road. When you are whipping down the road at 70 mph, it can be a little hypnotic, and you can lose sight of your surroundings. The only way to fight these things is self-control. Take charge of your own driving and make sure you follow the law. It may save you from getting a ticket or worse. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Move Over law needs revisiting Could D.C. writers survive in our world? Go out and vote: What other choice do you have?

They are the survivors of members of our Veterans Club who have passed away. A generous and caring man we call Norman provided the funds and plans for our Veterans Club that allowed us to give these ladies an enjoyable social event. At this luncheon we were served a wonderful meal; given an excellent guided tour of the Appleton Museum and shared many laughs. .As we approach Memorial Day the occasion was even more significant. Because there are many widows of service personnel in our community; I would like to share some thoughts with those of you who were not with us at the Appleton. Loving a person in the military is no easy task. While they are accomplishing their missions; the person left behind must single handedly deal with the daily tasks of providing a home; care for children; make decisions on behalf of a family; live on military wages and usually hold down a job. Added to these burdens are the worries about the loved one far away. There is a fear when the phone rings or the doorbell sounds; edginess watching the news on TV each night and the daily expectations of waiting for the mail. There is a chill to loneliness that surpasses a cold wind. It is a longing that isnt fulfilled; an itch that cant be scratched; a feeling of emptiness in the heart. Worst of all perhaps, it is a constant companion. When the loved one returns, he/she often brings home baggage that doesnt fit in a duffle bag. Its the baggage of having seen and done things that no human being should be asked to see or do. Its a trauma that comes from having faced terror and violence; shock and loss. These burdens are shared either consciously or unconsciously by the mate of a service person. Healing requires not only great love but patience; nurturing and nursing. Thus more sacrifice and hardship are placed on the partner who has already endured so much. To those of us who are veterans, you are our heroes. You are the people we have loved and relied upon; you are the ones who have brought us back to the real world; who have replaced hate and violence with love and compassion. You are and have been our lovers and our healers. Each of you should take great pride in what you have accomplished in your life. Your courage and dedication; perseverance; and patience have been not only a great service to the one you loved; but to your country. It is not in my power to award each of you a medal or some other form of recognition. All I can do is to tell you that your efforts have not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. You will always have the gratitude; devotion and affection of the Veterans whom you loved. If you have suggestions or comments on this section of the Citizen please contact me at urperssec@ yahoo.com CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 23 provided valuable jewelry for our gift baskets, and the Star Banner provided advertising. We gratefully thank all these businesses for their philanthropy and for caring about their community. Wed also like to thank all the local businesses who gave us gifts for our gift baskets. Our gift basket raffle was a huge success. Although we dont have room to personally thank everyone individually here, you may be seeing people coming to your establishments after winning gift certificates for breakfast or dinner, manicures and pedicures, massages, and flowers among other items. These gift baskets were a large part of the evening and we are also extremely grateful for your community support. Throughout the evening, a PowerPoint presentation continuously looped on three big screens, showing our guests many of the animals and organizations we have helped over the years. Thanks to all who worked on this beautiful presentation. Finally, we could not have put on such a big event without the hard work and enthusiasm of our SPCA president, Dr. Beverly Carver. No one worked harder at every stage to get this fundraiser up and running and to become a reality. We hope all our guests had as great a time as we did. Our mission is to help the animals in need in Marion County, and because of the success of this fundraiser, we can help more animals in the upcoming months lead better lives.

The SPCA of Marion Countys Gone Bunco It may have been rainy and dreary outside on Friday evening, May 2, but it was all sunshine and smiles inside the Klein Center at the College of Central Florida for the SPCAs gala fundraiser, The SPCA of Marion Countys Gone Bunco. We heard guests entering the Center say something smells good, referring to the delicious catering provided by the College of Central Florida. Before bunco began, guests dined on Swedish meatballs, pork and vegetable egg rolls, bruschetta, vegetable and fruit platters, cheese and crackers and other assorted delights. For dessert, tasty brownies and cookies shaped like dog bones with SPCA written on them were the highlights. Each table had a centerpiece filled with dog bones and flowers. You can see that the college went all out for us and were deeply grateful. First, wed like to thank everyone who braved the bad weather and came out to support us. We all had fun playing bunco and laughing with friends and neighbors. More than half the guests never played bunco before, but its an easy game to learn, and each table was given a quick tutorial before play began. At the end of the evening, prizes were given out for most buncos and most wins. Then about 20 gift baskets were raffled off, so many people went home with a valuable remembrance of the evening. Wed next like to thank Betty Thayer, who was our bunco MC. She did a superb job calling out the games and providing instructions. Everyone was impressed with her ability to clearly get bunco novices moving in the right direction. We could not have had an orderly, fun evening without the help of the students from the West Port High School Key Club, led by Mr. Waters. They gave out playing instructions, helped us move to neighboring tables, stamped our cards for bunco, and helped people with mobility issues. Many guests commended the young men and women for their work and the SPCA seconds that. We could not have put this evening on at all without the support of our major sponsors. In alphabetical order they are: A Family Veterinarian, led by Dr. Ed, Ark Storage, the College of Central Florida, Frank DeLuca of DeLuca Toyota, Panther Printing, Roger Hunt Diamonds, and the Star Banner. Dr. Ed of A Family Veterinarian provides medical care to our foster animals, and works with us to provide financial aid to needy families for their medical bills. Ark Storage donated storage space for the kibble and treats we pack for the Pets on Wheels Program. The College of Central Florida provided the Klein Center, catering, beautifully decorated tables, clean up, and flyer design. Frank De Luca of DeLuca Toyota gave us a generous donation for this event. Panther Printing donates our printing needs, including the beautiful new SPCA brochures, event flyers, letterhead, and pens. Roger Hunt Diamonds Another year has gone by and I find myself facing the same quandary I faced last year. I was hoping somehow this year would be different, but, alas, it is not. Many people complain about how fast things are changing, I complain about those things that do not change at all. Interestingly, the things you want to change refuse to do so and the things you want to stay the same never do. I wish someone would figure out how to reverse this tedious trend of life. I have worked on it but to no success. I am referring to the annual Mothers Day card fetish. I am not sure where this started or why, but I have my suspicions. I think we can safely rule out husbands and men as suspects. I could see a man doing it one year, but to do it year after year is not within the scope of a mans ability. If a man does something one time and it is successful he never chances doing it the second time when it may be a failure. Now we have on our hands tremendous pressure to purchase a yearly Mothers Day card. When it comes to card buying, I simply do not know where to go. Oh, I know where to get them; I simply do not know which one to purchase. If it was up to me, and let me point out very quickly, it is not, I would have one card for sale each year. Maybe I would modify the card each year and perhaps write something different in it, but how many ways can you say Happy Mothers Day? To be efficient the choice would only be one Mothers Day card per year. As it stands (and I wish it would sit down and rest for a while), there are more Mothers Day cards than stars in the heavens. It is virtually impossible to pick out the right Mothers Day card. Since I do not keep up with the latest trends in this regard I am at quite a disadvantage. One year I tried to remedy my Mothers Day card-buying dilemma by buying a box of 50 cards that were on sale right after Mothers Day. I thought I had hit the mother lode, so to speak. With this purchase, I had enough Mothers Day cards to last my entire lifetime. Unless, of course, I live to be 129. This lasted for two years. The first year I presented my Mothers Day card to my wife and she gave me all kinds of smiles and hugs. I was relieved to have solved a big problem in my home. I now could rest and focus on solving other problems in my life, of which there are many. It was the second year that kicked me in the teeth. As usual, that year, I presented my wife with her Mothers Day card. Trust me; I was not fully geared up for the response I got. I was expecting smiles and hugs like the year before. What I got was a glare and a shrug. She looked at me and said something I shall never forget. Isnt this the same card you gave me last year? How do wives remember these things? The only reason I knew it was the same card as last year is I had more just like it in the box it came from. Apparently, good protocol rules out giving the same card two years in a row. Who knew? I didnt. To have a problem unsolved is a very nerve-racking experience, to be sure. Now I must go back and start the whole Mothers Day card buying process over again. This brings me to the second part of my quandary. When did it become necessary for husbands to buy their wives Mothers Day cards? Sure, she washes my clothes, cooks my meals and bosses me about. She still is not my mother. It starts out rather innocently enough as most things do. Then, in my opinion, it gets out of hand. When the children start coming into the home it is quite natural, because they are too young to make such important decisions, for the father to buy the Mothers Day card on behalf of the children. I still remember that first Mothers Day card. Our first baby was only seven months old and had no idea what was going on in the world or even in the home. I gave my wife her first Mothers Day card. She was so excited. Because she was excited, so was I. This is where the whole nonsense starts. What I want to know is when do hus-Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder My Mothers Day card quandary PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, May 15th, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. This is the first meeting after our fundraiser The SPCA of Marion Countys Gone Bunco. We will share the details of the big event and discuss new business. Please call our special hotline number at 352-3620985 for more information about our meeting or to contact us for any reason. The SPCA is low on dog food for the Pets on Wheels program. This program provides dog and cat food for people with pets who receive Meals on Wheels. Kibble can be dropped off in the SPCA bin at Winn Dixie in Friendship Center. You can also call us and well arrange an alternate pick up or drop off. Please note that we dont accept any food or treats made in China, so please check before donating. Thank you all for your generosity.Adoption NewsThe SPCA is happy to report that our foster dog Toby, the rat terrier, has been adopted into a loving home. We thank everyone who called to inquire about him. For anyone interested in adopting a very small dog, we are helping a neighbor and another organization place special dogs. First up are Corky and Wren, the adorable Chihuahua siblings pictured here. Their owner died without having a family member or friend available to take them in, so they have been at the Humane Society in Ocala since March 13. Brother and sister are 11 years old, are devoted to one another, and need to be adopted together. Corky and Wren are friendly, healthy and very loving. They walk great on a leash and love to go for walks. At 11, they are spry and active because Chihuahuas can live up to 20 years. So if you adopt them, you can have many happy years together. Please dont let their age deter you. They get along well with other dogs, even if theyre only 6 lbs. They hold their own when turned out in the pen with the other dogs at the shelter. We dont know about cats, but at their size, theyre smaller than most cats. Corky is the black and white spayed female, and Wren is the brown and white neutered male. They have come a long way at the Humane Society since their first day there, when they clung to each other in bewilderment, huddled in a corner. They think that every person who comes in wants to take them back to their home, as if they have been waiting for a vacation to end. The siblings would make perfect companions for a gentle senior person or family, or any gentle person without children who would be too rough for them. Many people who visit the Humane Society come with children in tow and are looking for large active dogs. Thats why were highlighting Corky and Wren here. Perhaps you are that special person who can open your heart and home to two loving senior pets in need. To visit or inquire about Corky and Wren, please call the Humane Society at (352) 873-7387. A neighbor has called us to help place a little Yorkie who needs to find a new home. We dont have a picture yet, but Next SPCA meeting scheduled for May 15 we all know what a Yorkie looks like. Jack is only three years old and is living in a home with small children, which is inappropriate for such a small dog. Jacks owner thinks it is best to rehome him so that Jack doesnt have to worry about children inadvertently injuring him. Please give Erin a call at 352-6534154 if youre interested in meeting or learning more about this sweet, loving boy. We just received a new photo of Arlenes cats Panda, Smokey and Ebony. Coco is also available, but he didnt want to come to this food party. They have grown into wonderful cats who need to find their own homes. They have been so well cared for and socialized in foster care that you know you will be getting a great pet. Please call Arlene at 352-875-9761 to meet them.Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. Paws & Claws Maria Devine This is Corky and Wren.

We have a picture of a sweet little girl happily holding a colorful blanket of her very own. Another sweet little girl was wearing her new sweater; she had rat bites on her forehead. Our work makes us realize the blessings that we ourselves have in being able to give. Donations of yarn (and even money and gift cards) have made much of our work possible, and most of us also purchase supplies from our own pockets. Anything you may have that we could use would be very much appreciated. Just drop it off in Geris office or better yet, visit us on a Friday afternoon. A special thank you to Lolly Dobson for her generous donation of yarn. Welcome to Ruth Bartlett; our newest very talented member. All are welcome to join us on Friday afternoons from 1 to 3 in the card/library room of the clubhouse. Any one of us would be happy to help out with your own project; or even teach someone willing to learn. The coffee pot is always on.Ladies luncheonOnce again on Wednesday, May 14, our ladies will gather in the clubhouse for a great lunch and informal social get together. The rules for attending this good time are quite simple. First, you must be a female; second, you need to bring a favorite dish to pass around; and third, youll need to bring a place setting of dishes and silver for yourself. Oh, and just as importantly as these first three items; bring along your smile and sense of humor. Our ladies meet at noon for this always fun event. Be a part of this great group as they gather to share friendship and fellowship in a relaxed atmosphere. Youll be glad that you attended.TriviaThe sharpest minds at Cherrywood are tuning up for this months Trivia Night challenge. This is a gathering of brilliant individuals that come together similar to a Mensa meeting and join forces to answer a wide variety of difficult and tricky questions. Okay, so I exaggerate. In truth we are just a group of mostly average and arguably normal people having some laughs and a good time. At 7 p.m. we get together in the clubhouse. After paying the exorbitant fee of $1 per person to enter; we divide into teams. Each team gets an answer sheet and then they try to give the best answers to questions put up on the big screen. Our quiz master this month is Fred OHern who will be asking questions on subjects such as; sports; entertainment; Memorial Day; general knowledge and more. Fred is always good at coming up with some special questions to stump our players. The winning team receives a small cash prize and more importantly; bragging rights for the entire month. All proceeds from Trivia go to the Patriot Dog Project so youll have a blast and support a worthy charity as well. Come join us.

The last child in our home left more than 15 years ago and still I find myself under the awesome pressure of purchasing a Mothers Day card for my wife. When do the children take control of this yearly responsibility? In spite of my quandary, it is important to honor both fathers and mothers.

It was about an elderly couple. The wife becomes very sick but wants to die at home. Her husband is her caretaker with a bit of help from paid workers. It was easy to notice how strong their love was for each other. Watching their decline was depressing. The film was slow moving with spaces having no action or talking. It leant a certain peacefulness and calmness that is rarely shown in Hollywood movies.New England ClubSubmitted by: Donnamarie Castellano, PresidentThursday, May 15 will be our last social of the season.

More than 50 residents gathered in the clubhouse at Cherrywood to share in the excitement of the 140th run for the roses. California Chrome proved why it was the favorite to win with a brilliantly run race. Everyone brought their own refreshments which varied from miniature pizzas to Ardies delicious homemade cookies. Race fans were able to sample some traditional mint juleps and Kentucky bourbon as well as enjoy their own beverages. A dozen beautifully decorated hats and bonnets were set on the tables to be judged. The contestants went all out this year and Janice McLeod and Marty Duesel had their hands full as they tallied the ballots. Newcomer to Cherrywood Carol Irwin won first place; second place went to Holly Bragdon and Sandee Spencer took third. We congratulate our winners and thank all who entered the contest. Three winners were selected for the 50/50 drawing winning cash prizes of varied amounts. One of the winners was Jay OHern which was slightly suspicious as he heads the Social Committee that hosted the event. Seriously, congratulations are in order for the outstanding job done by our Social Committee in sponsoring this event and providing a great evening of exciting entertainment for all. We will all be looking forward to next year thanks to their efforts.Survivors honored at AppletonNearly 20 survivors of Veterans Club members were treated to a fantastic luncheon at the Appleton Museum thanks to the generosity of our friend and benefactor; Norman. The anonymous person we call Norman is an Army veteran himself and personally arranges for our survivors outings. The specially catered meal was not only delicious but was presented beautifully. During the luncheon a raffle was held and many guests received exquisite scarves direct from the museums gift shop. These brightly colored and expertly made wraps were greatly appreciated by all who won them. The gifts were just another touch of class added by Norman to the festivities. It was my privilege to address this group of special ladies. As everyone knows the second toughest job in the world is to be in the military; the toughest is to love someone in the military. Because of their courage; their sacrifices; their nurturing; nursing; caring for and sharing the dreams of their veteran husbands they are our heroes. Our Veterans Club and those of us who are still here will never forget them or fail to honor who they are and what they have given. Immediately following the luncheon the ladies were given a personal guided tour of the museum and its current display of beautiful tapestries and other unique exhibits. For many of the ladies this was their first visit to the Appleton and they made it a memorable one.. The Veterans Club would like to thank our hostesses; Ruth Hurley; Ida Mahar and Christl Giovanniello for providing the organizational skills and grace that made this outing so special.Spring Fling dance On Saturday, May 17 the Activities Team will host the Spring Fling dance. Doors open at 7 p.m. and thats when Rich Becotte will fire up your favorite tunes for your dancing and listening enjoyment. Ask Rich for any song and its very likely hell have it in his vast repertoire. Snacks and hors doeuvres will be available along with lemonade and iced tea but if you would like to bring your own drinks and eatables; youre welcome to do that also. Tickets are only $2 each and can be gotten from Geri in the office. We expect a good crowd to be there for this informal and fun time so get your tickets soon. Neat eats; great music and good friends; it doesnt get any better than that.Veterans Golf TournamentJune 7, is the day set for our Veterans Golf Open. It will be here quickly so all golfers are urged to contact either John Everlove at 352-509-4428 or Rich Hurley at 352-873-7208 to make reservations for this terrific day of golf and sportsmanship. The beautiful Ocala Palms Golf and Country Club is the venue for this special outing. Players will check in at 7:15 and then go to a hearty pancake breakfast. Immediately following that meal, a Goodie Bag will be presented to each player and then the golfers will proceed to get their carts. Once on the course, the shotgun start will be given and the competition will begin. Prizes will be awarded for different flights of players so whether you are a pro or a duffer, you will still have a chance to win. There will also be a closest to the pin contest and a huge prize for a hole in one. All during the match, a courtesy cart will be roving the area with liquid refreshments to make sure that none of our players get dehydrated. Once the 18 holes of golf are completed the starter and judges will tally the scores while our players dine on a catered luncheon. In between courses you will be able to stroll through the items on our silent auction and bid on a bevy of gifts. For the small donation of just $50 each, golfers can have all this and a wonderful day on the links. If youve ever wanted to have a great day of golf and help a worthy cause at the same time; this is your opportunity. Call Rich or John today and reserve a place for yourself or your twosome; threesome or foursome. Shred your documentsFriday, May 9, from 1 until 3 in the afternoon you will have the opportunity to shred those documents that have been piling up around your house. Dont be a victim of identity theft by throwing your personal information into the trash. Dispose of it conveniently and confidentially with Enviro-shred. Just bring your documents to the clubhouse between the appointed hours and while you watch; your documents and private information will be destroyed right before your eyes. The cost for this service is nominal so you are urged to gather your unwanted and unneeded papers together and bring them to the clubhouse. Cherrywood Crochet & Knitting ClubArticle provided by Edna Fazio President of the Crochet and Knitting Club It doesnt seem possible that we are already into May with summer weather already here. Seeing neighbors and friends gardens in beautiful bloom is a friendly welcoming sight. While listening to our pastors sermon on Sunday, the similarity between his message and our crafting group suddenly struck me. It was about unselfishly giving of your talent without expecting anything in return. The ladies in our group work endless hours creating items for those in need. Weve heard stories from Scott Hackmyer; our go-between who distributes the baby sweaters; hats; toys; blankets; bibs; shawls; chemo hats and afghans for cancer patients; lap blankets for nursing homes etc., all hand made, to the various charities in need of these items. Young mothers who have nothing else for their newborn baby or older children gratefully accept a donated sweater; blanket or hat with tears in their eyes. at the meeting. Remember: You dont have to come from New England to join our club; you just need a love of New England!

Our worship service includes the beloved old-time Gospel Hymns together with some of todays contemporary choruses. We preach and teach strictly from Gods Word. We believe the entire Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God given to us by God through His chosen writers, to enable us to know Him and to understand how to live our lives in the way He requires, so that we might be pleasing and acceptable to Him. We seek to teach those desiring to follow Him, who God is and who He expects us to be.

Dear readers, things are really slowing down here in Oak Run. The Bingo players enjoyed their first night of playing in a different club. All around it was a good move. Please take note of two important articles re: Jacob OHern and Reading Pals. We as seniors have so many opportunities to reach out and help others and because of our life experiences the abilities to make a difference. I am especially pleased that we have the South Marion Citizen to publish not just the news of our neighborhoods but the needs of so many groups, etc. May is the month to enjoy both Mothers Day and Memorial Day, so please do. Now to the activities reported. LauraHorseshoe championJimmy Scott, an Oak Run resident since October 2013 and a member of the Oak Run Horseshoe Pitching League, placed first in his class at the Florida State Horseshoe Pitching Tournament held April 23 through the 26 in Beverly Hills, Florida. Scott went 5-0 and averaged 42.4 ringer percentage. The Florida State Tournament is sanctioned by the National Horseshoe Pitchers Association. The Executive Council of the FSHPA selects a different location each year to stage the tournament. Last year the tournament was held at the Clearwater Horseshoe Courts. Scott also placed first in doubles class in Clearwater last year. The 2015 State Tournament will be held at the horseshoe courts near Flagler Beach. To enter a Florida State Tournament you must have participated in at least 5 Florida State sanctioned tournaments or one sanctioned league and four sanctioned tournaments prior to April 1 of that year.Reading PalsThe Reading Pals program is in 15 schools in Marion County. The volunteers meet with the student for two sessions of 30 minutes each and after the second session the child gets to take the book home for their own private library. The students in this program have been identified as needing additional support in Math and Language Arts based on their test scores coming into kindergarten. There are a variety of ways that the program could be supported. Since we give a book a week to the students clubs can provide funding for a student for the school year, they can provide funding for a book for one week for the program or they can volunteer to be a Reading Pal. If people are interested in volunteering they can come to the June 6 training being offered at Oak Run only if they call Jan Hathaway first to discuss the program. This allows me to answer any questions that they might have as well as assure that we have adequate supplies for the training session.

Some important decisions and dates have been set for the Performing Arts Company of Oak Runs fall musical production. The production will be announced at the May 12 7 p.m. meeting in the Palm Grove. As this marks the beginning of the production process, members are encouraged to bring a guest. As well, those interested in at least taking a look at the company are urged to attend. The reading and selection committee are tighter than a drum on the secret selection and have refused all overtures to divulge the news. What we do know is this: It will be a cast and chorus-intensive production and an all-out effort will be made to recruit new performers to the company. Dick Caza, who is the Company president, will undertake directing this musical with two assistants. Marci Hutto will direct music and score. Shari Weber will direct choreography. Bruce McDuffee will head up stage and set construction. Well have six major roles with a lead role of great importance. This gives the company the chance to showcase a chosen performer for this role. I anticipate there will be at least four or five auditioning for the lead, comments Caza. Additionally, Dick mentions, we intend to reach out to other musical clubs and even the hidden talent in Oak Run to fill major and chorus roles. Now is the time to join the fun! The directors intend to streamline rehearsals so that the time required for chorus and actors is efficiently developed. Here are the key dates: Announcement of production May 12 company meeting, Palm Grove 7 p.m. Call Dick Caza if you miss this meeting and would like to know what the production will be. 352/274-9574.

The morning show team from AMHQ with Sam Champion will be the on air talent for the partnership. The Atlanta-based television network will raise funds for the American Cancer Societys fight against cancer and will be a national media partner for the Societys Relay events. The Weather Channel will promote Relay For Life in a campaign which includes on-air promos, online content, social media and program elements within AMHQ. Co-hosts Sam Champion, Maria LaRosa, Mike Bettes and Anaridis Rodriguez will each team up with a cancer survivor to raise funds and encourage people to join community relay events. Viewers can follow the teams progress through periodic updates on air and through the networks digital platforms. In addition, The Weather Channel will promote sun safety through the partnership and provide local weather information for the thousands of outdoor events which take place throughout the country. All of us at the American Cancer Society are delighted to have The Weather Channel as the newest national partner of our Relay For Life program, said John Seffrin, Ph.D., the Societys Chief Executive Officer. On Sunday we celebrate Mothers Day to show honor and respect to one of the most influential persons in our lives. We all spent the most formative years of our lives with our mothers. Our tour down Pun Alley takes us to some motherly tales.Mothers adviceIn the supermarket a mother was pushing a cart that contained her screaming, bellowing baby. The mother kept repeating softly, Dont get excited, Monica; dont scream, Monica; dont yell, Monica; keep calm, Monica. A woman standing next to the mother said, You certainly are to be commended for trying to soothe your daughter Monica. The mother looked at her and said, Her name is Mary. Im Monica. Real promotionTommy, just home from the last day of school was real happy. I didnt know my second grade teacher liked me so much, Mommy, he confided. I heard her talking to one of the other teachers, and she must be awfully fond of me! Do you know what she said? No, what did she say? his mother asked. She said that the happiest day of her life was when Tommy was promoted to the third grade.Grandmas recipeSuzanne was preparing a ham dinner. After she cut off the end of the ham, she placed it in a pan for baking. Her friend asked her, Why did you cut off the end of the ham? She replied, I really dont know but my mother always did, so I thought you were supposed to. Later when talking to her mother she asked her why she cut off the end of the ham before baking it, and her mother replied, I really dont know, but thats the way my mom always did it. A few weeks later, while visiting her grandmother, Suzanne asked, Grandma, why is it that you cut off the end of a ham before you bake it? Her grandmother replied, Well dear, it would never fit into my baking pan.A real pick-me-up A teacher gave her class of second graders a lesson on the magnet and what it does. The next day in a written test, she included this question, My full name has six letters. The first one is M. I am strong and attractive. I pick up things. What am I? When the test papers were turned in, the teacher was astonished to find that almost half of the students answered the question with the word Mother.A mother asksIs there a magic cutoff period when offspring become accountable for their own actions? Is there a wonderful moment when mothers can become detached spectators in the lives of their children and shrug, Its their life, and feel nothing? When I was in my twenties, I stood in a hospital corridor waiting for doctors to put a few stitches in my sons head. I asked, When do you stop worrying? The nurse said, When they get out of the accident stage. When I was in my thirties, I sat on a little chair in a classroom and heard how one of my children talked incessantly and disrupted the class. As if to read my mind, a teacher said, Dont worry, they all go through this stage and then you can sit back, relax and enjoy them. When I was in my forties, I spent a lifetime waiting for the phone to ring, the cars to come home, the front door to open. A friend said, Theyre trying to find themselves. Dont worry in a few years you can stop worrying. Theyll be adults. By the time I was 50, I was sick and tired of being vulnerable. I was still worrying over my children, but there was a new wrinkle. There was nothing I could do about it. I continued to anguish over their failures, be tormented by their frustrations and absorbed in their disappointments. My friends said that when my kids got married I could stop worrying and lead my own life. Can it be that mothers are sentenced to a lifetime of worry? Is concern for one another handed down like a torch to blaze the trail of human frailties and the fears of the unknown? One of my children became quite irritable recently, saying to me, Where were you? Ive been calling for 3 days, and no one answered. I was worried. I smiled a little. The torch has been passed. Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com of the Jewish holiday of Lag BOmer, which is traditionally commemorated by large outdoor celebrations and bonfires, which harbor spiritual significance. Chabad-Lubavitch, the largest Jewish outreach organization in the world, is hosting thousands of similar Lag BOmer celebrations in cities across the globe. The celebrations all share a common theme: Jewish Unity. Lag BOmer marks the passing nearly two thousand years ago of the great Talmudic sage, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai. He is best known as the author of the Zohar, the fundamental text of the Jewish mystical tradition, the Kabbalah. On the day of his passing, Rabbi Shimon instructed his disciples to mark the date as the day of my joy. The holiday also marks the end of a tragic epidemic which killed 24,000 students of the great Talmudic sage Rabbi Akiva, who served as Rabbi Shimons teacher. On Lag BOmer the dying ceased. Thus Lag BOmer also carries the theme of Ahavat Yisrael, the imperative to love and respect ones fellow. About Lag BOmer: Lag BOmer is literally translated as the thirty third day of the Omer, a period of seven weeks between Passover, which commemorates the Jewish peoples Exodus from Egypt, and Shavout, which commemorates the giving of the Ten Commandments. For more information on ChabadLubavitch Jewish Center of Marion Countys Lag BOmer festivities or on the holiday of Lag BOmer and its observances, contact Rabbi Yossi or Chanie Hecht at 352-291-2218 or email info@jewishMarion.org or visit our website at www.JewishMarion.org.

Join us in the Lifestyle Center on Tuesday, May 20, after the Social, for a 30 to 45 minute program by Tom Gerardi, assistant vice president and financial advisor at Suntrust Investment Services. He will give us an overview of the current financial market, which will include information on global stocks, bonds, equities, commodities and real estate. Please note that this presentation is a general performance summary of the market presented for informational purposes only. It should not be taken as advice for your personal investing strategy. If you would like to learn more about this topic, please mark your calendar for Tuesday at 9:30 a.m.Bunka ShishuBunka Shishu translates to painting with thread and needles and is an art form that has been in existence in one form or another since the 11th century. In its present form, it began in Tokyo about 75 years ago. A finished picture often resembles a finely detailed oil painting with the thread providing the texture and colors and the artists workmanship providing the depth of the overall picture. Because each piece reflects the artists individual handiwork, no two pictures can ever look exactly alike. There are currently two classes offered in Bunka Shishu at the Lifestyle Center. The Wednesday Bunka class meets from 2 to 4 p.m. and is led by Margaret Nelson, ABEA certified instructor; and our newest Bunka class, which includes a teaching segment, individual instruction and practice time, meets on Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. It is led by Evelyn Brown, ABEA master teacher and master judge with 33 years of teaching experience. (ABEAAmerican Bunka Embroidery Association is a not for profit association designed to promote, teach and enjoy the art of Japanese Bunka Embroidery.) Each class is $5, payable to the instructor, plus the cost of your kit. Beginners are welcome. Please stop by if you would like to speak with the instructor about joining their class.Graduates of Citizens AcademyThe Marion County Sheriffs Citizens Academy and Partnership (CAP) program offers a free 12-week educational course about the operations of the Sheriffs Office, and five Marion Landing residents completed the program in April. During the program, MCSO staff highlighted all units within the Sheriffs Office and presented citizens with an in-depth understanding of what the agency does for theFriday, May 9, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Our next blood drive is scheduled for Wednesday, May 21. The blood mobile will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. to take your donation. You may sign up on the Blood Drive sheet hanging on the Activity Wall, or see Pat Wurst, blood drive coordinator, and her volunteers in the lobby the day the bus is here. Pat reminds us that all donations collected at our blood drives stay within Marion County. According to the American Red Cross, if all eligible donors would donate blood on a regular basis, four to six times a year, blood needs would be met and shortages could be a thing of the past. For decades this nation relied on a large pool of blood donors from the heroic World War II veterans who considered blood donation to be an ongoing patriotic duty. That generation is fast disappearing and we need other new donors to step forward to take their place. Be assured, donating blood is safe and a healthy thing to do. Not only do you get a free mini physical, including blood pressure check, heart rate, temperature and iron levels, but its the fastest way to lose a pound. And for men, there is a life-saving benefit to donating blood. Men are at higher risk for hemochromatosis, or iron overload, which is a potentially deadly problem where too much iron builds up in their blood. It can lead to heart disease and other major health problems. Research shows that if men give blood three times a year, they can reduce their iron overload and therefore their risk of a heart attack by as much as 50%. Blood donors are true heroes, and your single blood donation can save up to three lives. So roll up your sleeves and do your part to help Floridas Blood Centers, the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals.Cool fun in the hot sunWith the temperature heating up, why not start the day with cool morning water exercise? Aquatic exercise is a low-impact activity that takes the pressure off your bones, joints and muscles. Water offers natural resistance, which helps strengthen your muscles, and you can even do aquatic exercise if you dont know how to swim. Water exercise begins Monday, May 12, (weather permitting) with Water Aerobics meeting Monday through Friday at 8:45 a.m., except on Tuesday when it begins at 9:30 after the Coffee Social, and Aquacize meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 a.m. Just stop by the pool no signup is required and its free. Do something good for your body, mind and spirit. Start your day with water exercise in the pool. Fun Fashion ShowRetiree fashion was the theme for the fundraiser fun fashion show, which gave Marion Landing residents an opportunity to support the Sunshine Committee while enjoying an afternoon of good fun, fellowship and excellent homemade salads and dessert.

In addition, The Weather Channel will promote sun safety through the partnership and provide local weather information for the thousands of outdoor events which take place throughout the country. All of us at the American Cancer Society are delighted to have The Weather Channel as the newest national partner of our Relay For Life program, said John Seffrin, Ph.D., the Societys Chief Executive Officer. On Sunday we celebrate Mothers Day to show honor and respect to one of the most influential persons in our lives. We all spent the most formative years of our lives with our mothers. Our tour down Pun Alley takes us to some motherly tales.Mothers adviceIn the supermarket a mother was pushing a cart that contained her screaming, bellowing baby. The mother kept repeating softly, Dont get excited, Monica; dont scream, Monica; dont yell, Monica; keep calm, Monica. A woman standing next to the mother said, You certainly are to be commended for trying to soothe your daughter Monica. The mother looked at her and said, Her name is Mary. Im Monica. Real promotionTommy, just home from the last day of school was real happy. I didnt know my second grade teacher liked me so much, Mommy, he confided. I heard her talking to one of the other teachers, and she must be awfully fond of me! Do you know what she said? No, what did she say? his mother asked. She said that the happiest day of her life was when Tommy was promoted to the third grade.Grandmas recipeSuzanne was preparing a ham dinner. After she cut off the end of the ham, she placed it in a pan for baking. Her friend asked her, Why did you cut off the end of the ham? She replied, I really dont know but my mother always did, so I thought you were supposed to. Later when talking to her mother she asked her why she cut off the end of the ham before baking it, and her mother replied, I really dont know, but thats the way my mom always did it. A few weeks later, while visiting her grandmother, Suzanne asked, Grandma, why is it that you cut off the end of a ham before you bake it? Her grandmother replied, Well dear, it would never fit into my baking pan.A real pick-me-up A teacher gave her class of second graders a lesson on the magnet and what it does. The next day in a written test, she included this question, My full name has six letters. The first one is M. I am strong and attractive. I pick up things. What am I? When the test papers were turned in, the teacher was astonished to find that almost half of the students answered the question with the word Mother.A mother asksIs there a magic cutoff period when offspring become accountable for their own actions? Is there a wonderful moment when mothers can become detached spectators in the lives of their children and shrug, Its their life, and feel nothing? When I was in my twenties, I stood in a hospital corridor waiting for doctors to put a few stitches in my sons head. I asked, When do you stop worrying? The nurse said, When they get out of the accident stage. When I was in my thirties, I sat on a little chair in a classroom and heard how one of my children talked incessantly and disrupted the class. As if to read my mind, a teacher said, Dont worry, they all go through this stage and then you can sit back, relax and enjoy them. When I was in my forties, I spent a lifetime waiting for the phone to ring, the cars to come home, the front door to open. A friend said, Theyre trying to find themselves. Dont worry in a few years you can stop worrying. Theyll be adults. By the time I was 50, I was sick and tired of being vulnerable. I was still worrying over my children, but there was a new wrinkle. There was nothing I could do about it. I continued to anguish over their failures, be tormented by their frustrations and absorbed in their disappointments. My friends said that when my kids got married I could stop worrying and lead my own life. Can it be that mothers are sentenced to a lifetime of worry? Is concern for one another handed down like a torch to blaze the trail of human frailties and the fears of the unknown? One of my children became quite irritable recently, saying to me, Where were you? Ive been calling for 3 days, and no one answered. I was worried. I smiled a little. The torch has been passed. Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com of the Jewish holiday of Lag BOmer, which is traditionally commemorated by large outdoor celebrations and bonfires, which harbor spiritual significance. Chabad-Lubavitch, the largest Jewish outreach organization in the world, is hosting thousands of similar Lag BOmer celebrations in cities across the globe. The celebrations all share a common theme: Jewish Unity. Lag BOmer marks the passing nearly two thousand years ago of the great Talmudic sage, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai. He is best known as the author of the Zohar, the fundamental text of the Jewish mystical tradition, the Kabbalah. On the day of his passing, Rabbi Shimon instructed his disciples to mark the date as the day of my joy. The holiday also marks the end of a tragic epidemic which killed 24,000 students of the great Talmudic sage Rabbi Akiva, who served as Rabbi Shimons teacher. On Lag BOmer the dying ceased. Thus Lag BOmer also carries the theme of Ahavat Yisrael, the imperative to love and respect ones fellow. About Lag BOmer: Lag BOmer is literally translated as the thirty third day of the Omer, a period of seven weeks between Passover, which commemorates the Jewish peoples Exodus from Egypt, and Shavout, which commemorates the giving of the Ten Commandments. For more information on ChabadLubavitch Jewish Center of Marion Countys Lag BOmer festivities or on the holiday of Lag BOmer and its observances, contact Rabbi Yossi or Chanie Hecht at 352-291-2218 or email info@jewishMarion.org or visit our website at www.JewishMarion.org. All are welcome! No membership or affiliation is required. RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 Hospice volunteers needed\Volunteers Needed.

Dear readers, things are really slowing down here in Oak Run. The Bingo players enjoyed their first night of playing in a different club. All around it was a good move. Please take note of two important articles re: Jacob OHern and Reading Pals. We as seniors have so many opportunities to reach out and help others and because of our life experiences the abilities to make a difference. I am especially pleased that we have the South Marion Citizen to publish not just the news of our neighborhoods but the needs of so many groups, etc. May is the month to enjoy both Mothers Day and Memorial Day, so please do. Now to the activities reported. LauraHorseshoe championJimmy Scott, an Oak Run resident since October 2013 and a member of the Oak Run Horseshoe Pitching League, placed first in his class at the Florida State Horseshoe Pitching Tournament held April 23 through the 26 in Beverly Hills, Florida. Scott went 5-0 and averaged 42.4 ringer percentage. The Florida State Tournament is sanctioned by the National Horseshoe Pitchers Association. The Executive Council of the FSHPA selects a different location each year to stage the tournament. Last year the tournament was held at the Clearwater Horseshoe Courts. Scott also placed first in doubles class in Clearwater last year. The 2015 State Tournament will be held at the horseshoe courts near Flagler Beach. To enter a Florida State Tournament you must have participated in at least 5 Florida State sanctioned tournaments or one sanctioned league and four sanctioned tournaments prior to April 1 of that year.Reading PalsThe Reading Pals program is in 15 schools in Marion County. The volunteers meet with the student for two sessions of 30 minutes each and after the second session the child gets to take the book home for their own private library. The students in this program have been identified as needing additional support in Math and Language Arts based on their test scores coming into kindergarten. There are a variety of ways that the program could be supported. Since we give a book a week to the students clubs can provide funding for a student for the school year, they can provide funding for a book for one week for the program or they can volunteer to be a Reading Pal. If people are interested in volunteering they can come to the June 6 training being offered at Oak Run only if they call Jan Hathaway first to discuss the program. This allows me to answer any questions that they might have as well as assure that we have adequate supplies for the training session. Thanks so very much for your support of the Reading Pals program. Jan Hathaway, Reading Pals, Literacy Manager P: 352-732-9696 Ext. 212, F: 352-732-9608.

Some important decisions and dates have been set for the Performing Arts Company of Oak Runs fall musical production. The production will be announced at the May 12 7 p.m. meeting in the Palm Grove. As this marks the beginning of the production process, members are encouraged to bring a guest. As well, those interested in at least taking a look at the company are urged to attend. The reading and selection committee are tighter than a drum on the secret selection and have refused all overtures to divulge the news. What we do know is this: It will be a cast and chorus-intensive production and an all-out effort will be made to recruit new performers to the company. Dick Caza, who is the Company president, will undertake directing this musical with two assistants. Marci Hutto will direct music and score. Shari Weber will direct choreography. Bruce McDuffee will head up stage and set construction. Well have six major roles with a lead role of great importance. This gives the company the chance to showcase a chosen performer for this role. I anticipate there will be at least four or five auditioning for the lead, comments Caza. Additionally, Dick mentions, we intend to reach out to other musical clubs and even the hidden talent in Oak Run to fill major and chorus roles. Now is the time to join the fun! The directors intend to streamline rehearsals so that the time required for chorus and actors is efficiently developed. Here are the key dates: Announcement of production May 12 company meeting, Palm Grove 7 p.m. Call Dick Caza if you miss this meeting and would like to know what the production will be. 352/274-9574.

More than 50 residents gathered in the clubhouse at Cherrywood to share in the excitement of the 140th run for the roses. California Chrome proved why it was the favorite to win with a brilliantly run race. Everyone brought their own refreshments which varied from miniature pizzas to Ardies delicious homemade cookies. Race fans were able to sample some traditional mint juleps and Kentucky bourbon as well as enjoy their own beverages. A dozen beautifully decorated hats and bonnets were set on the tables to be judged. The contestants went all out this year and Janice McLeod and Marty Duesel had their hands full as they tallied the ballots. Newcomer to Cherrywood Carol Irwin won first place; second place went to Holly Bragdon and Sandee Spencer took third. We congratulate our winners and thank all who entered the contest. Three winners were selected for the 50/50 drawing winning cash prizes of varied amounts. One of the winners was Jay OHern which was slightly suspicious as he heads the Social Committee that hosted the event. Seriously, congratulations are in order for the outstanding job done by our Social Committee in sponsoring this event and providing a great evening of exciting entertainment for all. We will all be looking forward to next year thanks to their efforts.Survivors honored at AppletonNearly 20 survivors of Veterans Club members were treated to a fantastic luncheon at the Appleton Museum thanks to the generosity of our friend and benefactor; Norman. The anonymous person we call Norman is an Army veteran himself and personally arranges for our survivors outings. The specially catered meal was not only delicious but was presented beautifully. During the luncheon a raffle was held and many guests received exquisite scarves direct from the museums gift shop. These brightly colored and expertly made wraps were greatly appreciated by all who won them. The gifts were just another touch of class added by Norman to the festivities. It was my privilege to address this group of special ladies. As everyone knows the second toughest job in the world is to be in the military; the toughest is to love someone in the military. Because of their courage; their sacrifices; their nurturing; nursing; caring for and sharing the dreams of their veteran husbands they are our heroes. Our Veterans Club and those of us who are still here will never forget them or fail to honor who they are and what they have given. Immediately following the luncheon the ladies were given a personal guided tour of the museum and its current display of beautiful tapestries and other unique exhibits. For many of the ladies this was their first visit to the Appleton and they made it a memorable one.. The Veterans Club would like to thank our hostesses; Ruth Hurley; Ida Mahar and Christl Giovanniello for providing the organizational skills and grace that made this outing so special.Spring Fling dance On Saturday, May 17 the Activities Team will host the Spring Fling dance. Doors open at 7 p.m. and thats when Rich Becotte will fire up your favorite tunes for your dancing and listening enjoyment.

Snacks and hors doeuvres will be available along with lemonade and iced tea but if you would like to bring your own drinks and eatables; youre welcome to do that also. Tickets are only $2 each and can be gotten from Geri in the office. We expect a good crowd to be there for this informal and fun time so get your tickets soon.

It will be here quickly so all golfers are urged to contact either John Everlove at 352-509-4428 or Rich Hurley at 352-873-7208 to make reservations for this terrific day of golf and sportsmanship. The beautiful Ocala Palms Golf and Country Club is the venue for this special outing. Players will check in at 7:15 and then go to a hearty pancake breakfast. Immediately following that meal, a Goodie Bag will be presented to each player and then the golfers will proceed to get their carts. Once on the course, the shotgun start will be given and the competition will begin. Prizes will be awarded for different flights of players so whether you are a pro or a duffer, you will still have a chance to win. There will also be a closest to the pin contest and a huge prize for a hole in one. All during the match, a courtesy cart will be roving the area with liquid refreshments to make sure that none of our players get dehydrated. Once the 18 holes of golf are completed the starter and judges will tally the scores while our players dine on a catered luncheon. In between courses you will be able to stroll through the items on our silent auction and bid on a bevy of gifts. For the small donation of just $50 each, golfers can have all this and a wonderful day on the links. If youve ever wanted to have a great day of golf and help a worthy cause at the same time; this is your opportunity. Call Rich or John today and reserve a place for yourself or your twosome; threesome or foursome. Shred your documentsFriday, May 9, from 1 until 3 in the afternoon you will have the opportunity to shred those documents that have been piling up around your house. Dont be a victim of identity theft by throwing your personal information into the trash. Dispose of it conveniently and confidentially with Enviro-shred.

The cost for this service is nominal so you are urged to gather your unwanted and unneeded papers together and bring them to the clubhouse. Cherrywood Crochet & Knitting ClubArticle provided by Edna Fazio President of the Crochet and Knitting Club It doesnt seem possible that we are already into May with summer weather already here. Seeing neighbors and friends gardens in beautiful bloom is a friendly welcoming sight. While listening to our pastors sermon on Sunday, the similarity between his message and our crafting group suddenly struck me. It was about unselfishly giving of your talent without expecting anything in return. The ladies in our group work endless hours creating items for those in need. Weve heard stories from Scott Hackmyer; our go-between who distributes the baby sweaters; hats; toys; blankets; bibs; shawls; chemo hats and afghans for cancer patients; lap blankets for nursing homes etc., all hand made, to the various charities in need of these items. Young mothers who have nothing else for their newborn baby or older children gratefully accept a donated sweater; blanket or hat with tears in their eyes. at the meeting. Remember: You dont have to come from New England to join our club; you just need a love of New England!

We have a picture of a sweet little girl happily holding a colorful blanket of her very own. Another sweet little girl was wearing her new sweater; she had rat bites on her forehead. Our work makes us realize the blessings that we ourselves have in being able to give. Donations of yarn (and even money and gift cards) have made much of our work possible, and most of us also purchase supplies from our own pockets. Anything you may have that we could use would be very much appreciated. Just drop it off in Geris office or better yet, visit us on a Friday afternoon. A special thank you to Lolly Dobson for her generous donation of yarn. Welcome to Ruth Bartlett; our newest very talented member. All are welcome to join us on Friday afternoons from 1 to 3 in the card/library room of the clubhouse. Any one of us would be happy to help out with your own project; or even teach someone willing to learn. The coffee pot is always on.Ladies luncheonOnce again on Wednesday, May 14, our ladies will gather in the clubhouse for a great lunch and informal social get together. The rules for attending this good time are quite simple. First, you must be a female; second, you need to bring a favorite dish to pass around; and third, youll need to bring a place setting of dishes and silver for yourself. Oh, and just as importantly as these first three items; bring along your smile and sense of humor. Our ladies meet at noon for this always fun event. Be a part of this great group as they gather to share friendship and fellowship in a relaxed atmosphere. Youll be glad that you attended.TriviaThe sharpest minds at Cherrywood are tuning up for this months Trivia Night challenge. This is a gathering of brilliant individuals that come together similar to a Mensa meeting and join forces to answer a wide variety of difficult and tricky questions. Okay, so I exaggerate. In truth we are just a group of mostly average and arguably normal people having some laughs and a good time. At 7 p.m. we get together in the clubhouse. After paying the exorbitant fee of $1 per person to enter; we divide into teams. Each team gets an answer sheet and then they try to give the best answers to questions put up on the big screen. Our quiz master this month is Fred OHern who will be asking questions on subjects such as; sports; entertainment; Memorial Day; general knowledge and more. Fred is always good at coming up with some special questions to stump our players. The winning team receives a small cash prize and more importantly; bragging rights for the entire month. All proceeds from Trivia go to the Patriot Dog Project so youll have a blast and support a worthy charity as well. Come join us.

Looking back over my experience, I can see no way where I can opt out of this annual event. The last child in our home left more than 15 years ago and still I find myself under the awesome pressure of purchasing a Mothers Day card for my wife. When do the children take control of this yearly responsibility? In spite of my quandary, it is important to honor both fathers and mothers. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth (Ephesians 6:2-3).

The SPCA of Marion Countys Gone Bunco It may have been rainy and dreary outside on Friday evening, May 2, but it was all sunshine and smiles inside the Klein Center at the College of Central Florida for the SPCAs gala fundraiser, The SPCA of Marion Countys Gone Bunco. We heard guests entering the Center say something smells good, referring to the delicious catering provided by the College of Central Florida. Before bunco began, guests dined on Swedish meatballs, pork and vegetable egg rolls, bruschetta, vegetable and fruit platters, cheese and crackers and other assorted delights. For dessert, tasty brownies and cookies shaped like dog bones with SPCA written on them were the highlights. Each table had a centerpiece filled with dog bones and flowers. You can see that the college went all out for us and were deeply grateful. First, wed like to thank everyone who braved the bad weather and came out to support us. We all had fun playing bunco and laughing with friends and neighbors. More than half the guests never played bunco before, but its an easy game to learn, and each table was given a quick tutorial before play began. At the end of the evening, prizes were given out for most buncos and most wins. Then about 20 gift baskets were raffled off, so many people went home with a valuable remembrance of the evening. Wed next like to thank Betty Thayer, who was our bunco MC. She did a superb job calling out the games and providing instructions. Everyone was impressed with her ability to clearly get bunco novices moving in the right direction. We could not have had an orderly, fun evening without the help of the students from the West Port High School Key Club, led by Mr. Waters. They gave out playing instructions, helped us move to neighboring tables, stamped our cards for bunco, and helped people with mobility issues. Many guests commended the young men and women for their work and the SPCA seconds that. We could not have put this evening on at all without the support of our major sponsors. In alphabetical order they are: A Family Veterinarian, led by Dr. Ed, Ark Storage, the College of Central Florida, Frank DeLuca of DeLuca Toyota, Panther Printing, Roger Hunt Diamonds, and the Star Banner. Dr. Ed of A Family Veterinarian provides medical care to our foster animals, and works with us to provide financial aid to needy families for their medical bills. Ark Storage donated storage space for the kibble and treats we pack for the Pets on Wheels Program. The College of Central Florida provided the Klein Center, catering, beautifully decorated tables, clean up, and flyer design. Frank De Luca of DeLuca Toyota gave us a generous donation for this event. Panther Printing donates our printing needs, including the beautiful new SPCA brochures, event flyers, letterhead, and pens. Roger Hunt Diamonds Another year has gone by and I find myself facing the same quandary I faced last year. I was hoping somehow this year would be different, but, alas, it is not. Many people complain about how fast things are changing, I complain about those things that do not change at all. Interestingly, the things you want to change refuse to do so and the things you want to stay the same never do. I wish someone would figure out how to reverse this tedious trend of life. I have worked on it but to no success. I am referring to the annual Mothers Day card fetish. I am not sure where this started or why, but I have my suspicions. I think we can safely rule out husbands and men as suspects. I could see a man doing it one year, but to do it year after year is not within the scope of a mans ability. If a man does something one time and it is successful he never chances doing it the second time when it may be a failure. Now we have on our hands tremendous pressure to purchase a yearly Mothers Day card. When it comes to card buying, I simply do not know where to go. Oh, I know where to get them; I simply do not know which one to purchase. If it was up to me, and let me point out very quickly, it is not, I would have one card for sale each year. Maybe I would modify the card each year and perhaps write something different in it, but how many ways can you say Happy Mothers Day? To be efficient the choice would only be one Mothers Day card per year. As it stands (and I wish it would sit down and rest for a while), there are more Mothers Day cards than stars in the heavens. It is virtually impossible to pick out the right Mothers Day card. Since I do not keep up with the latest trends in this regard I am at quite a disadvantage. One year I tried to remedy my Mothers Day card-buying dilemma by buying a box of 50 cards that were on sale right after Mothers Day. I thought I had hit the mother lode, so to speak. With this purchase, I had enough Mothers Day cards to last my entire lifetime. Unless, of course, I live to be 129. This lasted for two years. The first year I presented my Mothers Day card to my wife and she gave me all kinds of smiles and hugs. I was relieved to have solved a big problem in my home. I now could rest and focus on solving other problems in my life, of which there are many. It was the second year that kicked me in the teeth. As usual, that year, I presented my wife with her Mothers Day card. Trust me; I was not fully geared up for the response I got. I was expecting smiles and hugs like the year before. What I got was a glare and a shrug. She looked at me and said something I shall never forget. Isnt this the same card you gave me last year? How do wives remember these things? The only reason I knew it was the same card as last year is I had more just like it in the box it came from. Apparently, good protocol rules out giving the same card two years in a row. Who knew? I didnt. To have a problem unsolved is a very nerve-racking experience, to be sure. Now I must go back and start the whole Mothers Day card buying process over again. This brings me to the second part of my quandary. When did it become necessary for husbands to buy their wives Mothers Day cards? Sure, she washes my clothes, cooks my meals and bosses me about. She still is not my mother. It starts out rather innocently enough as most things do. Then, in my opinion, it gets out of hand. When the children start coming into the home it is quite natural, because they are too young to make such important decisions, for the father to buy the Mothers Day card on behalf of the children. I still remember that first Mothers Day card. Our first baby was only seven months old and had no idea what was going on in the world or even in the home. I gave my wife her first Mothers Day card. She was so excited. Because she was excited, so was I. This is where the whole nonsense starts. What I want to know is when do hus-Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder My Mothers Day card quandary PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, May 15th, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. This is the first meeting after our fundraiser The SPCA of Marion Countys Gone Bunco. We will share the details of the big event and discuss new business. Please call our special hotline number at 352-3620985 for more information about our meeting or to contact us for any reason. The SPCA is low on dog food for the Pets on Wheels program. This program provides dog and cat food for people with pets who receive Meals on Wheels. Kibble can be dropped off in the SPCA bin at Winn Dixie in Friendship Center. You can also call us and well arrange an alternate pick up or drop off. Please note that we dont accept any food or treats made in China, so please check before donating. Thank you all for your generosity.Adoption NewsThe SPCA is happy to report that our foster dog Toby, the rat terrier, has been adopted into a loving home. We thank everyone who called to inquire about him. For anyone interested in adopting a very small dog, we are helping a neighbor and another organization place special dogs. First up are Corky and Wren, the adorable Chihuahua siblings pictured here. Their owner died without having a family member or friend available to take them in, so they have been at the Humane Society in Ocala since March 13. Brother and sister are 11 years old, are devoted to one another, and need to be adopted together. Corky and Wren are friendly, healthy and very loving. They walk great on a leash and love to go for walks. At 11, they are spry and active because Chihuahuas can live up to 20 years. So if you adopt them, you can have many happy years together. Please dont let their age deter you. They get along well with other dogs, even if theyre only 6 lbs. They hold their own when turned out in the pen with the other dogs at the shelter. We dont know about cats, but at their size, theyre smaller than most cats. Corky is the black and white spayed female, and Wren is the brown and white neutered male. They have come a long way at the Humane Society since their first day there, when they clung to each other in bewilderment, huddled in a corner. They think that every person who comes in wants to take them back to their home, as if they have been waiting for a vacation to end. The siblings would make perfect companions for a gentle senior person or family, or any gentle person without children who would be too rough for them. Many people who visit the Humane Society come with children in tow and are looking for large active dogs. Thats why were highlighting Corky and Wren here. Perhaps you are that special person who can open your heart and home to two loving senior pets in need. To visit or inquire about Corky and Wren, please call the Humane Society at (352) 873-7387. A neighbor has called us to help place a little Yorkie who needs to find a new home. We dont have a picture yet, but Next SPCA meeting scheduled for May 15 we all know what a Yorkie looks like. Jack is only three years old and is living in a home with small children, which is inappropriate for such a small dog. Jacks owner thinks it is best to rehome him so that Jack doesnt have to worry about children inadvertently injuring him. Please give Erin a call at 352-6534154 if youre interested in meeting or learning more about this sweet, loving boy. We just received a new photo of Arlenes cats Panda, Smokey and Ebony. Coco is also available, but he didnt want to come to this food party. They have grown into wonderful cats who need to find their own homes. They have been so well cared for and socialized in foster care that you know you will be getting a great pet. Please call Arlene at 352-875-9761 to meet them.Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. Paws & Claws Maria Devine This is Corky and Wren.

Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 9, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenIts a platitude we hear about politics all the time: Negative campaigns should be avoided. I dont know how to break this to everybody, but at this point in our history, its nearly all negative. Lets face it, we rarely vote for candidates. Normally, we cast our ballot against them. No wonder. As often as not, its a choice between bad and worse or worst, if theres a third party involved. Of course, this year its really about choices ... 468 of them: 435 in the House of Representatives, 33 in the Senate. But its also a singular decision that Americans will make about President Barack Obama. Hes not up for election, but he could be down if Republicans take control of the Senate along with the strong likelihood that theyll at least maintain their House majority. Then, we can pretty much kiss the Obama presidency goodbye. Any of his selections for the high offices in his administration that require advice and consent will disappear into the partisan black hole. The same goes for any legislation he might initiate. Hell be left with the power of the veto, and maybe not even that if enough frightened Democrats can be recruited for an override. Theres an unpleasant debate ongoing about Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the most ardent liberal on a Supreme Court that has already been taken over by conservatives. Shes had her share of serious health problems, and theres a clamor on the left for her to resign. Why? So Democratic President Obama can nominate a progressive to replace her. If the GOP takes the Senate, you can forget about any jurist nominated by the White House. By the way, Ginsburg says she aint going anywhere. So what are the alternatives? What do you do when you believe that all of the candidates are buffoons, or worse? How do you select between political philosophies that leave you cold? And how do you express your disgust over an election that almost certainly will be determined by big-money interests who will then control the agenda in Washington? Weve regressed from a true democracy into an oligarchy. Whats the point of voting? Why not express disapproval by staying home? Sometimes, frankly, thats the best way to demonstrate ones contempt. This is not one of those times. This year, its important to do what little each of us can do to make it as difficult as possible for various insidious forces to completely take over. Unless we really dont care whether the theocrats pass laws that govern our personal choices, we need to reject those who pander to them. Unless were perfectly happy for fewer and fewer people to control all of our wealth and leave the rest of us with nothing, we need to get out and cast our ballots. And for those who are worried that liberals are clearing the path for a government takeover, they need to vote. They already will, whipped into a frenzy over Obamacare. But on both sides, we all need to get off our butts and choose. Then we can figure out if theres any chance that our government is capable of accomplishing anything through negotiation. Or not. (c) 2014 Bob Franken Distributed by King Features Synd. Through the years, Ive caught bits and pieces of the White House Correspondents dinner. This time around, I watched almost the whole thing, five hours worth on C-SPAN. The dinner was last Saturday evening, held at some swank venue in the Washington area. There were hordes of politicians and journalists, all dressed to kill, to have a meal of hotel food and listen to what amounts to a celebrity roast from a couple of speakers, including the president himself. There were some good moments, such as the presenting of awards to journalists and the awarding of scholarships to young people. But all of this left me feeling a little bit empty. These are White House correspondents from various types of media, all come together to socialize with people they wouldnt be caught dead with the other 364 days of the year. I wonder how many of these correspondents could make it through a year in our shoes, the shoes of those who cover local meetings and incidents. How many of these people, some of whom get to ride in Air Force One, or take overseas junkets with Congressmen, could go for a week sitting through a County Commission meeting, a City Council or School Board meeting, taking pictures of a ribbon cutting, etc. All this got me thinking about ethics in journalism, and where it exists today. To be honest, it exists at our level. I remember some time ago, I was working in a town where, yes, the reporters did get along with each other. If we were free, we gathered for Dutch treat breakfasts at a coffee shop near the courthouse. Local politicians also ate here, and they would stop by the tables in the back to give some news information to all of us no favoritism. That includes some local radio stations in that area, also. Once in a while, one of them would offer to buy us a cup of coffee, but we always declined because of ethical reasons. The politicians quickly learned that we couldnt be bought with a doughnut and coffee or orange juice. We had our ethics rules, something we each shared. Yes, we were competitors, and if we were sitting on a story the others didnt know about, we didnt broadcast it until it came out in the paper. I sit back on the weekends and watch a show called the Sports Reporters on ESPN. You pick up opinions of the writers who are guests on the show, enhancing your sports knowledge. But I also wonder if, back in the day, newspapers I worked for would allow me to give my opinions anywhere except in print. I have a feeling the attitude would have been, Let the TV stations get their own reporters dont use ours. Often, I go away from this show thinking that these high-priced reporters would have a hard time functioning in my world. The old biblical saying comes to mind: No man can serve two masters. There are a couple of associations in Florida for journalists, and they have conventions and award dinners. However, you pay dearly to join the association and also to attend the convention. I wonder how many of those in Washington did the same. I chose the type of journalism we do because I feel it serves a purpose, maybe even more of a purpose than the TV news reporters or prominent newspaper journalists who cover D.C. I wouldnt want to be in the fishbowl that is Washington. And I certainly wouldnt put on a tuxedo to hear my profession mocked by the president of the United States, even if some of his jokes fell flat.Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

Well probably never know the complete story of how that terrible accident on the Interstate happened on Saturday afternoon, when three people, including a state trooper, were killed when they were struck by a passing vehicle. This does, however, seem like a good time to revisit the move over law, even though it may not apply in this case. There are two basic parts to this law: First, if you are on a multi-lane road, and there is an emergency vehicle (that includes tow trucks) stopped on the shoulder, you must move over one lane. That seems simple enough, but its amazing how many people just dont get it. This provision is several years old and obviously needs tighter enforcement. Second, if you are on a two-lane road, or perhaps traffic is such that you cant move over, you must slow down to 20 mph below the speed limit as you pass the emergency vehicle on the shoulder. That really doesnt seem too complicated to us, and yet we see this law being violated almost every day. Unfortunately, it takes two law enforcement personnel to enforce this law. One is handling a situation on the side of the road, and the other would have to be stationed just past the incident to pull over those who ignore the regulation. Many law enforcement agencies do not have the extra officers to spare to cover these emergency situations. We suspect that very few people are driving along, see the emergency vehicles, and say, The heck with it, Im not slowing down. Rather, there are two things that can happen. First is ignorance of the law, but thats hardly an excuse any more. This law has been emphasized for years now. Second, many drivers are not paying attention. Some have tunnel vision, seeing whats only in front of them and ignoring what is on each side of their vehicle. Keeping your eye on the road also involves knowing what is going on around you. The opposite is also true. Many drivers are guilty of distracted driving as they head down the road. When you are whipping down the road at 70 mph, it can be a little hypnotic, and you can lose sight of your surroundings. The only way to fight these things is self-control. Take charge of your own driving and make sure you follow the law. It may save you from getting a ticket or worse.

READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor National Nurses WeekEach year, National Nurses Week is celebrated beginning May 6 and ending May 12 on Florence Nightingales birthday. National Nurses Week is one of the nations largest health care events, recognizing the contributions and commitments nurses make and educating the public about the significant work they perform.

They are the survivors of members of our Veterans Club who have passed away. A generous and caring man we call Norman provided the funds and plans for our Veterans Club that allowed us to give these ladies an enjoyable social event. At this luncheon we were served a wonderful meal; given an excellent guided tour of the Appleton Museum and shared many laughs. .As we approach Memorial Day the occasion was even more significant. Because there are many widows of service personnel in our community; I would like to share some thoughts with those of you who were not with us at the Appleton. Loving a person in the military is no easy task. While they are accomplishing their missions; the person left behind must single handedly deal with the daily tasks of providing a home; care for children; make decisions on behalf of a family; live on military wages and usually hold down a job. Added to these burdens are the worries about the loved one far away. There is a fear when the phone rings or the doorbell sounds; edginess watching the news on TV each night and the daily expectations of waiting for the mail. There is a chill to loneliness that surpasses a cold wind. It is a longing that isnt fulfilled; an itch that cant be scratched; a feeling of emptiness in the heart. Worst of all perhaps, it is a constant companion. When the loved one returns, he/she often brings home baggage that doesnt fit in a duffle bag. Its the baggage of having seen and done things that no human being should be asked to see or do. Its a trauma that comes from having faced terror and violence; shock and loss. These burdens are shared either consciously or unconsciously by the mate of a service person. Healing requires not only great love but patience; nurturing and nursing. Thus more sacrifice and hardship are placed on the partner who has already endured so much. To those of us who are veterans, you are our heroes. You are the people we have loved and relied upon; you are the ones who have brought us back to the real world; who have replaced hate and violence with love and compassion. You are and have been our lovers and our healers. Each of you should take great pride in what you have accomplished in your life. Your courage and dedication; perseverance; and patience have been not only a great service to the one you loved; but to your country. It is not in my power to award each of you a medal or some other form of recognition. All I can do is to tell you that your efforts have not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. You will always have the gratitude; devotion and affection of the Veterans whom you loved. If you have suggestions or comments on this section of the Citizen please contact me at urperssec@ yahoo.com CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 23 provided valuable jewelry for our gift baskets, and the Star Banner provided advertising. We gratefully thank all these businesses for their philanthropy and for caring about their community. Wed also like to thank all the local businesses who gave us gifts for our gift baskets. Our gift basket raffle was a huge success. Although we dont have room to personally thank everyone individually here, you may be seeing people coming to your establishments after winning gift certificates for breakfast or dinner, manicures and pedicures, massages, and flowers among other items. These gift baskets were a large part of the evening and we are also extremely grateful for your community support. Throughout the evening, a PowerPoint presentation continuously looped on three big screens, showing our guests many of the animals and organizations we have helped over the years. Thanks to all who worked on this beautiful presentation. Finally, we could not have put on such a big event without the hard work and enthusiasm of our SPCA president, Dr. Beverly Carver. No one worked harder at every stage to get this fundraiser up and running and to become a reality. We hope all our guests had as great a time as we did. Our mission is to help the animals in need in Marion County, and because of the success of this fundraiser, we can help more animals in the upcoming months lead better lives.

His dad is his sole caregiver, (see picture in Citizen) his grandfather Fred OHern lives in Cherrywood. They are badly in need of a van equipped for Jacobs needs and have signed up with Mobility Awareness that does assist those who need special equipment. With the need of so many people the organization conducts a campaign to receive votes for deserving individuals. It is done on the computer and they are looking to put Jacob over the top of votes received. Go on your computer and enter : http://www.mobilityawarenessmonth.com/local-heroes/. Press Vote Now for Jacob OHern. They will give you a password and you can vote every day for him. It is very easy to do. I believe Oak Run readers have the compassion to do so and show our Cherrywood neighbors we care. To all my readers have a good week.

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 lighthearted 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 Tea Party to meetThe Marion County Tea Party meets every Monday at 7 p.m. at The First Love Church, 2529 N.

Centered on a 19-year-old girls disappearance, the narrative follows the varying emotions of the panicked family. Cressida Mayfield, a shy loner, was last seen in a noisy biker bar miles from the house of her best friend with whom shed had dinner before setting out to walk home. Zeno Mayfield, the towns ex-mayor and the girls father, is a man who normally solves problems brilliantly. But now after days, weeks, and soon months slip by without a trace of his younger daughter, hes feeling frustrated and impotent. He cannot even phone Cressida because she was careless with cell phones. Shed lost at least two, both gifts from Zeno who wanted his daughters to be within calling range, if he required them. Then when bloodstains are found in Brett Kincaids car, the Iraq War veteran and former fianc of Juliet Mayfield, Cressidas older sister, becomes the prime person of interest. Once handsome and eagerly awaiting the upcoming nuptials with the love of his life, Brett had returned to Carthage disfigured and mentally damaged from a grenade attack. Over Juliets protests he breaks off the engagement, forcing the family to cancel wedding plans. At first the town is in disbelief but later accepts that wars were monstrous and made monsters of those who waged them. At this point Ill say that this large, well-written novel is for patient readers because for almost 200 pages the moaning and handwringing keep the book from moving along. But what ensues after this first section is worth hanging in there for because the reader learns that Cressida is still alive somewhere. To say anymore would give too much away. Mostly through inner monologues, Oates helps us to grasp the complex damage done to families and society by wars that seem so far away.

Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good week to look at healing bruised feelings and reestablishing weakened relationships. It's also a good week to start new projects and make new job-linked contacts. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Music and art dominate the week, giving the sensual Bovine a lot to appreciate. On the practical side, deal firmly, but fairly, with those who might try to undermine your work efforts. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Good feelings continue to flow from your recent efforts to reconnect with family and friends. But be ready to defuse a dispute before it can disrupt all that peace and harmony. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A practical view of a romanticized situation could help to clarify some of its confusing aspects before you make a decision that could be tough to undo later on. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Pay more attention to what a recent spate of workplace criticism might say about your performance and not what you think it implies about you personally. Some flexibility might be called for. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) With new information, and new promises of support (not to mention growing self-confidence), this could be a good time to restart a project you couldn't handle before. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Before you decide to close down a problemloaded project and make a fresh start with someone else, try once more to reach a compromise with your balky partner. He or she might surprise you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) While you continue earning points for your negotiating skills, be alert for an attempt to undercut your efforts. You'll need to provide solid facts and figures. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A minor health problem might cause you to ease up on your usually busy schedule. But you'll soon be back in the saddle and ready to pick up the reins and charge ahead. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) The adventurous Sea Goat might be eager to take on a new challenge. But before you do, take some time to check out previously overlooked factors. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A feeling of being overwhelmed by all that you have to do can be eased by setting priorities. Deal with the most urgent and time-sensitive situations first, and then work down the line. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Creating a calm, peaceful place for yourself in the middle of an emotional whirlpool this week starts when you, and no one else, decide to make decisions about your life. Interfaith Services is an operation located in Ocala that was created to assist the homeless and downtrodden citizens of Marion County. They operate a shelter, a thrift store, a soup kitchen, a prescription program for indigent citizens and various other services that have become a haven of hope for many. This year, the Marion County Guardian ad Litem program would like to specifically recognize and thank the staff at the Interfaith Thrift Store. The GAL volunteer is often the first to discover a need for household items for a family who is trying to make a home for a child who might otherwise end up in foster care. Many times, these well meaning people dont have the funds to be able to go out and buy the items needed to be approved to gain custody of the children. Thats when the GAL volunteer simply has to pick up the phone and call the Interfaith thrift store manager, Steve Clem, or the Executive Director, Karla Grimsley, to ask for help. Whether it is furniture, beds, clothing, linens, silverware or dishes, they have helped on multiple occasions to provide these items for our children and families. In one recent case, a grandmother who received custody of her 3 grandchildren needed almost everything because she had to move into a larger home to accommodate the children. Steve Clem provided, free of charge, a living room set, dressers for the children and a dining set. On another case, beds were needed in order for 2 children to be able to live with a relative who could not be approved without beds. Interfaith honored Friday, May 9 CF commencement setThe College of Central Florida will hold its spring 2014 commencement ceremony at 7 p.m. Friday, May 9, at First Baptist Church of Ocala, 2801 S.E.

The two were among eight assignments announced last week. Superintendent George Tomyn noted all eight appointments including four first-time principals are home-grown administrators because they all graduated from Marion County public high schools. Teresa Forsyth moves to Hammett Bowen Jr. Elementary as principal from Belleview-Santos Elementary. She is a 20-year veteran of the district, having started in 1994 as a substitute teacher of exceptional students at Oakcrest Elementary. She also taught at Osceola Middle and Wyomina Park Elementary. She became the behavior specialist there in 2001 and was named assistant principal at Wyomina Park in 2005 before moving to Belleview-Santos in 2009. Forsyths bachelors in Elementary Education comes from Saint Leo University while her masters in Education Leadership comes from Nova Southeastern University. She graduated from North Marion High School. Jennifer Sibbald moves to Liberty Middle as principal from her current coordinator position in the districts K-12 Academic Services department. After graduating from Dunnellon High, Sibbald joined MCPS in 1996 as a teacher at Dunnellon High. Ten years later, she advanced to assistant principal at Belleview High, then four years ago to the same position at North Marion High. Last year, she moved to the district for her current position. Her associate degree comes from the College of Central Florida while her bachelors in History comes from the University of Florida. Sibbald earned her masters in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University. She replaces current Principal Michelle Lewis, who is relocating out-ofstate. Long-time principal Leanna Dixon (Hammett Bowen Jr. Elementary) is retiring after working 37 years at five schools. 32~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com New principals at Hammett Bowen, Liberty Jennifer Sibbald Teresa Forsyth Three people, including a state trooper, were killed Saturday afternoon as they stood along Interstate 75 in the aftermath of a traffic accident. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Trooper Chelsea Renee Richard, 30, tow truck driver John Duggan, 57, of Williston and George Phillips, 52, were struck by a pickup truck driven by Troy T. Owens, 22, of Palatka. Richard and Duggan died at the scene. Phillips was taken to ORMC in critical condition and later died in the hospital. The original accident near mile marker 341 involved two vehicles, one of which had Phillips daughter in it. He came to the scene to help her, and was standing with Richard and Duggan when another pileup occurred nearby. Evidently immediately after that, the pickup swerved onto the shoulder, reportedly to avoid stopped traffic, and struck the troopers car and hit the three people. Richard was a nine-year veteran of the Highway Patrol and was the mother of a 4-year-old. She had been working out of the Ocala office for about a year. Her funeral was Thursday. Trooper 2 others die on I-75 BY JIM CLARK EditorThe Marion County Commission voted Tuesday to purchase the assets of Windstream Utilities, which serves areas along State Road 200, including Jasmine Plaza and Majestic Oaks. The final decision should come next month. The county cited possible commercial growth and the fact that Windstream already had commercial accounts in that area. Fire hydrants in Majestic Oaks are part of the plan. Officials said the purchase would not affect taxpayers because of the income from Windstream. In another matter, the commissioners heard from Karen Ahrman of Northeast 6th Place, who presented a petition signed by 2,700 people trying to keep Wild Waters open. She said she expects to eventually get 10,000 signatures. She said that thousands patronize Wild Waters, and added that except for when there are concerts, the Wild Waters parking lot is full and the Silver Springs lot is empty. She called the attraction a great place for families, and said that with the growth of Central Florida, we need to keep the attractions. County to buy assets of utility company along State Road 200 This is the weekend to clean out your pantries to help those in our community who may be living life suffering from hunger. On Saturday, your letter carrier will be accepting donations to our area food banks. It is easy to help. Simply hang your donation from your mailbox and your mail carrier will pick it up.

The two were among eight assignments announced last week. Superintendent George Tomyn noted all eight appointments including four first-time principals are home-grown administrators because they all graduated from Marion County public high schools. Teresa Forsyth moves to Hammett Bowen Jr. Elementary as principal from Belleview-Santos Elementary. She is a 20-year veteran of the district, having started in 1994 as a substitute teacher of exceptional students at Oakcrest Elementary. She also taught at Osceola Middle and Wyomina Park Elementary. She became the behavior specialist there in 2001 and was named assistant principal at Wyomina Park in 2005 before moving to Belleview-Santos in 2009. Forsyths bachelors in Elementary Education comes from Saint Leo University while her masters in Education Leadership comes from Nova Southeastern University. She graduated from North Marion High School. Jennifer Sibbald moves to Liberty Middle as principal from her current coordinator position in the districts K-12 Academic Services department. After graduating from Dunnellon High, Sibbald joined MCPS in 1996 as a teacher at Dunnellon High. Ten years later, she advanced to assistant principal at Belleview High, then four years ago to the same position at North Marion High. Last year, she moved to the district for her current position. Her associate degree comes from the College of Central Florida while her bachelors in History comes from the University of Florida. Sibbald earned her masters in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University. She replaces current Principal Michelle Lewis, who is relocating out-ofstate. Long-time principal Leanna Dixon (Hammett Bowen Jr. Elementary) is retiring after working 37 years at five schools. 32~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com New principals at Hammett Bowen, Liberty Jennifer Sibbald Teresa Forsyth Three people, including a state trooper, were killed Saturday afternoon as they stood along Interstate 75 in the aftermath of a traffic accident. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Trooper Chelsea Renee Richard, 30, tow truck driver John Duggan, 57, of Williston and George Phillips, 52, were struck by a pickup truck driven by Troy T. Owens, 22, of Palatka. Richard and Duggan died at the scene. Phillips was taken to ORMC in critical condition and later died in the hospital. The original accident near mile marker 341 involved two vehicles, one of which had Phillips daughter in it. He came to the scene to help her, and was standing with Richard and Duggan when another pileup occurred nearby. Evidently immediately after that, the pickup swerved onto the shoulder, reportedly to avoid stopped traffic, and struck the troopers car and hit the three people. Richard was a nine-year veteran of the Highway Patrol and was the mother of a 4-year-old. She had been working out of the Ocala office for about a year. Her funeral was Thursday. Trooper 2 others die on I-75 BY JIM CLARK EditorThe Marion County Commission voted Tuesday to purchase the assets of Windstream Utilities, which serves areas along State Road 200, including Jasmine Plaza and Majestic Oaks. The final decision should come next month. The county cited possible commercial growth and the fact that Windstream already had commercial accounts in that area. Fire hydrants in Majestic Oaks are part of the plan. Officials said the purchase would not affect taxpayers because of the income from Windstream. In another matter, the commissioners heard from Karen Ahrman of Northeast 6th Place, who presented a petition signed by 2,700 people trying to keep Wild Waters open. She said she expects to eventually get 10,000 signatures. She said that thousands patronize Wild Waters, and added that except for when there are concerts, the Wild Waters parking lot is full and the Silver Springs lot is empty. She called the attraction a great place for families, and said that with the growth of Central Florida, we need to keep the attractions. County to buy assets of utility company along State Road 200 This is the weekend to clean out your pantries to help those in our community who may be living life suffering from hunger. On Saturday, your letter carrier will be accepting donations to our area food banks. It is easy to help. Simply hang your donation from your mailbox and your mail carrier will pick it up. Area food banks are trying to stock up for one of the busiest times of the year. School will soon be over and many children are going to be home for lunch. For many families the only source for lunch is your local food bank. Marion County has been very generous in the past. We have been number 1 in our classification for five years in a row. Mail carriers have picked up over 1.5 million pounds. Interfaith Services is used as a distributor to other agencies such as Brothers Keeper and Salvation Army along with many others. We look forward to your support again this year. Mail carriers to pick up food donations Derby hat dayIf it was the first Saturday in May, it was Kentucky Derby hat day at Cherrywood.

Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good week to look at healing bruised feelings and reestablishing weakened relationships. It's also a good week to start new projects and make new job-linked contacts. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Music and art dominate the week, giving the sensual Bovine a lot to appreciate. On the practical side, deal firmly, but fairly, with those who might try to undermine your work efforts. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Good feelings continue to flow from your recent efforts to reconnect with family and friends. But be ready to defuse a dispute before it can disrupt all that peace and harmony. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A practical view of a romanticized situation could help to clarify some of its confusing aspects before you make a decision that could be tough to undo later on. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Pay more attention to what a recent spate of workplace criticism might say about your performance and not what you think it implies about you personally. Some flexibility might be called for. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) With new information, and new promises of support (not to mention growing self-confidence), this could be a good time to restart a project you couldn't handle before. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Before you decide to close down a problemloaded project and make a fresh start with someone else, try once more to reach a compromise with your balky partner. He or she might surprise you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) While you continue earning points for your negotiating skills, be alert for an attempt to undercut your efforts. You'll need to provide solid facts and figures. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A minor health problem might cause you to ease up on your usually busy schedule. But you'll soon be back in the saddle and ready to pick up the reins and charge ahead. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) The adventurous Sea Goat might be eager to take on a new challenge. But before you do, take some time to check out previously overlooked factors. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A feeling of being overwhelmed by all that you have to do can be eased by setting priorities. Deal with the most urgent and time-sensitive situations first, and then work down the line. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Creating a calm, peaceful place for yourself in the middle of an emotional whirlpool this week starts when you, and no one else, decide to make decisions about your life. Interfaith Services is an operation located in Ocala that was created to assist the homeless and downtrodden citizens of Marion County. They operate a shelter, a thrift store, a soup kitchen, a prescription program for indigent citizens and various other services that have become a haven of hope for many. This year, the Marion County Guardian ad Litem program would like to specifically recognize and thank the staff at the Interfaith Thrift Store. The GAL volunteer is often the first to discover a need for household items for a family who is trying to make a home for a child who might otherwise end up in foster care. Many times, these well meaning people dont have the funds to be able to go out and buy the items needed to be approved to gain custody of the children. Thats when the GAL volunteer simply has to pick up the phone and call the Interfaith thrift store manager, Steve Clem, or the Executive Director, Karla Grimsley, to ask for help. Whether it is furniture, beds, clothing, linens, silverware or dishes, they have helped on multiple occasions to provide these items for our children and families. In one recent case, a grandmother who received custody of her 3 grandchildren needed almost everything because she had to move into a larger home to accommodate the children. Steve Clem provided, free of charge, a living room set, dressers for the children and a dining set. On another case, beds were needed in order for 2 children to be able to live with a relative who could not be approved without beds. Interfaith honored Friday, May 9 CF commencement setThe College of Central Florida will hold its spring 2014 commencement ceremony at 7 p.m. Friday, May 9, at First Baptist Church of Ocala, 2801 S.E. Maricamp Road. Tickets are not required; however, a large crowd is expected and parking will be limited. Carpooling is encouraged. The Distinguished Alumni Award will be presented to Sindy Schneider, class of 1993, who is co-owner of Dance 411 Studios and 411 Productions in Atlanta, which co-produces televised shows for Bravo TV, MTV, Lifetime and NBC. Cynthia OConnell, secretary of the Florida Lottery, will deliver the commencement address.

For more information and reservations, please contact Suzanne or Bud Smith at 352-620-0340 or suzannesmith2@cox.net. Please submit your reservations by April 15.Forum to discuss pipelineThe proposed Sabal Trail natural gas pipeline scheduled to run through western Marion County for end-user FPL. Do we even need it?

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 lighthearted 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 Tea Party to meetThe Marion County Tea Party meets every Monday at 7 p.m. at The First Love Church, 2529 N.

Centered on a 19-year-old girls disappearance, the narrative follows the varying emotions of the panicked family. Cressida Mayfield, a shy loner, was last seen in a noisy biker bar miles from the house of her best friend with whom shed had dinner before setting out to walk home. Zeno Mayfield, the towns ex-mayor and the girls father, is a man who normally solves problems brilliantly. But now after days, weeks, and soon months slip by without a trace of his younger daughter, hes feeling frustrated and impotent. He cannot even phone Cressida because she was careless with cell phones. Shed lost at least two, both gifts from Zeno who wanted his daughters to be within calling range, if he required them. Then when bloodstains are found in Brett Kincaids car, the Iraq War veteran and former fianc of Juliet Mayfield, Cressidas older sister, becomes the prime person of interest. Once handsome and eagerly awaiting the upcoming nuptials with the love of his life, Brett had returned to Carthage disfigured and mentally damaged from a grenade attack. Over Juliets protests he breaks off the engagement, forcing the family to cancel wedding plans. At first the town is in disbelief but later accepts that wars were monstrous and made monsters of those who waged them. At this point Ill say that this large, well-written novel is for patient readers because for almost 200 pages the moaning and handwringing keep the book from moving along. But what ensues after this first section is worth hanging in there for because the reader learns that Cressida is still alive somewhere. To say anymore would give too much away. Mostly through inner monologues, Oates helps us to grasp the complex damage done to families and society by wars that seem so far away. Story centers on girls disappearance Bookmark Pat Wellington Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com World Heritage Student Exchange Programs, a highly respected nonprofit, public-benefit organization, is seeking local host families for high school boys and girls from Scandinavia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Thailand, China, South Korea and the former Soviet Republics.

His dad is his sole caregiver, (see picture in Citizen) his grandfather Fred OHern lives in Cherrywood. They are badly in need of a van equipped for Jacobs needs and have signed up with Mobility Awareness that does assist those who need special equipment. With the need of so many people the organization conducts a campaign to receive votes for deserving individuals. It is done on the computer and they are looking to put Jacob over the top of votes received. Go on your computer and enter : http://www.mobilityawarenessmonth.com/local-heroes/. Press Vote Now for Jacob OHern. They will give you a password and you can vote every day for him. It is very easy to do.

Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 9, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenIts a platitude we hear about politics all the time: Negative campaigns should be avoided. I dont know how to break this to everybody, but at this point in our history, its nearly all negative. Lets face it, we rarely vote for candidates. Normally, we cast our ballot against them. No wonder. As often as not, its a choice between bad and worse or worst, if theres a third party involved. Of course, this year its really about choices ... 468 of them: 435 in the House of Representatives, 33 in the Senate. But its also a singular decision that Americans will make about President Barack Obama. Hes not up for election, but he could be down if Republicans take control of the Senate along with the strong likelihood that theyll at least maintain their House majority. Then, we can pretty much kiss the Obama presidency goodbye. Any of his selections for the high offices in his administration that require advice and consent will disappear into the partisan black hole. The same goes for any legislation he might initiate. Hell be left with the power of the veto, and maybe not even that if enough frightened Democrats can be recruited for an override. Theres an unpleasant debate ongoing about Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the most ardent liberal on a Supreme Court that has already been taken over by conservatives. Shes had her share of serious health problems, and theres a clamor on the left for her to resign. Why? So Democratic President Obama can nominate a progressive to replace her. If the GOP takes the Senate, you can forget about any jurist nominated by the White House. By the way, Ginsburg says she aint going anywhere. So what are the alternatives? What do you do when you believe that all of the candidates are buffoons, or worse? How do you select between political philosophies that leave you cold? And how do you express your disgust over an election that almost certainly will be determined by big-money interests who will then control the agenda in Washington? Weve regressed from a true democracy into an oligarchy. Whats the point of voting? Why not express disapproval by staying home? Sometimes, frankly, thats the best way to demonstrate ones contempt. This is not one of those times. This year, its important to do what little each of us can do to make it as difficult as possible for various insidious forces to completely take over. Unless we really dont care whether the theocrats pass laws that govern our personal choices, we need to reject those who pander to them. Unless were perfectly happy for fewer and fewer people to control all of our wealth and leave the rest of us with nothing, we need to get out and cast our ballots. And for those who are worried that liberals are clearing the path for a government takeover, they need to vote. They already will, whipped into a frenzy over Obamacare. But on both sides, we all need to get off our butts and choose. Then we can figure out if theres any chance that our government is capable of accomplishing anything through negotiation. Or not. (c) 2014 Bob Franken Distributed by King Features Synd. Through the years, Ive caught bits and pieces of the White House Correspondents dinner. This time around, I watched almost the whole thing, five hours worth on C-SPAN. The dinner was last Saturday evening, held at some swank venue in the Washington area. There were hordes of politicians and journalists, all dressed to kill, to have a meal of hotel food and listen to what amounts to a celebrity roast from a couple of speakers, including the president himself. There were some good moments, such as the presenting of awards to journalists and the awarding of scholarships to young people. But all of this left me feeling a little bit empty. These are White House correspondents from various types of media, all come together to socialize with people they wouldnt be caught dead with the other 364 days of the year. I wonder how many of these correspondents could make it through a year in our shoes, the shoes of those who cover local meetings and incidents. How many of these people, some of whom get to ride in Air Force One, or take overseas junkets with Congressmen, could go for a week sitting through a County Commission meeting, a City Council or School Board meeting, taking pictures of a ribbon cutting, etc. All this got me thinking about ethics in journalism, and where it exists today. To be honest, it exists at our level. I remember some time ago, I was working in a town where, yes, the reporters did get along with each other. If we were free, we gathered for Dutch treat breakfasts at a coffee shop near the courthouse. Local politicians also ate here, and they would stop by the tables in the back to give some news information to all of us no favoritism. That includes some local radio stations in that area, also. Once in a while, one of them would offer to buy us a cup of coffee, but we always declined because of ethical reasons. The politicians quickly learned that we couldnt be bought with a doughnut and coffee or orange juice. We had our ethics rules, something we each shared. Yes, we were competitors, and if we were sitting on a story the others didnt know about, we didnt broadcast it until it came out in the paper. I sit back on the weekends and watch a show called the Sports Reporters on ESPN. You pick up opinions of the writers who are guests on the show, enhancing your sports knowledge. But I also wonder if, back in the day, newspapers I worked for would allow me to give my opinions anywhere except in print. I have a feeling the attitude would have been, Let the TV stations get their own reporters dont use ours. Often, I go away from this show thinking that these high-priced reporters would have a hard time functioning in my world. The old biblical saying comes to mind: No man can serve two masters. There are a couple of associations in Florida for journalists, and they have conventions and award dinners. However, you pay dearly to join the association and also to attend the convention. I wonder how many of those in Washington did the same. I chose the type of journalism we do because I feel it serves a purpose, maybe even more of a purpose than the TV news reporters or prominent newspaper journalists who cover D.C. I wouldnt want to be in the fishbowl that is Washington. And I certainly wouldnt put on a tuxedo to hear my profession mocked by the president of the United States, even if some of his jokes fell flat.Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

Well probably never know the complete story of how that terrible accident on the Interstate happened on Saturday afternoon, when three people, including a state trooper, were killed when they were struck by a passing vehicle. This does, however, seem like a good time to revisit the move over law, even though it may not apply in this case. There are two basic parts to this law: First, if you are on a multi-lane road, and there is an emergency vehicle (that includes tow trucks) stopped on the shoulder, you must move over one lane. That seems simple enough, but its amazing how many people just dont get it. This provision is several years old and obviously needs tighter enforcement. Second, if you are on a two-lane road, or perhaps traffic is such that you cant move over, you must slow down to 20 mph below the speed limit as you pass the emergency vehicle on the shoulder. That really doesnt seem too complicated to us, and yet we see this law being violated almost every day. Unfortunately, it takes two law enforcement personnel to enforce this law. One is handling a situation on the side of the road, and the other would have to be stationed just past the incident to pull over those who ignore the regulation. Many law enforcement agencies do not have the extra officers to spare to cover these emergency situations. We suspect that very few people are driving along, see the emergency vehicles, and say, The heck with it, Im not slowing down. Rather, there are two things that can happen. First is ignorance of the law, but thats hardly an excuse any more. This law has been emphasized for years now. Second, many drivers are not paying attention. Some have tunnel vision, seeing whats only in front of them and ignoring what is on each side of their vehicle. Keeping your eye on the road also involves knowing what is going on around you. The opposite is also true. Many drivers are guilty of distracted driving as they head down the road. When you are whipping down the road at 70 mph, it can be a little hypnotic, and you can lose sight of your surroundings. The only way to fight these things is self-control. Take charge of your own driving and make sure you follow the law. It may save you from getting a ticket or worse.

They are the survivors of members of our Veterans Club who have passed away. A generous and caring man we call Norman provided the funds and plans for our Veterans Club that allowed us to give these ladies an enjoyable social event. At this luncheon we were served a wonderful meal; given an excellent guided tour of the Appleton Museum and shared many laughs. .As we approach Memorial Day the occasion was even more significant. Because there are many widows of service personnel in our community; I would like to share some thoughts with those of you who were not with us at the Appleton. Loving a person in the military is no easy task. While they are accomplishing their missions; the person left behind must single handedly deal with the daily tasks of providing a home; care for children; make decisions on behalf of a family; live on military wages and usually hold down a job. Added to these burdens are the worries about the loved one far away. There is a fear when the phone rings or the doorbell sounds; edginess watching the news on TV each night and the daily expectations of waiting for the mail. There is a chill to loneliness that surpasses a cold wind. It is a longing that isnt fulfilled; an itch that cant be scratched; a feeling of emptiness in the heart. Worst of all perhaps, it is a constant companion. When the loved one returns, he/she often brings home baggage that doesnt fit in a duffle bag. Its the baggage of having seen and done things that no human being should be asked to see or do. Its a trauma that comes from having faced terror and violence; shock and loss. These burdens are shared either consciously or unconsciously by the mate of a service person. Healing requires not only great love but patience; nurturing and nursing. Thus more sacrifice and hardship are placed on the partner who has already endured so much. To those of us who are veterans, you are our heroes. You are the people we have loved and relied upon; you are the ones who have brought us back to the real world; who have replaced hate and violence with love and compassion. You are and have been our lovers and our healers. Each of you should take great pride in what you have accomplished in your life. Your courage and dedication; perseverance; and patience have been not only a great service to the one you loved; but to your country. It is not in my power to award each of you a medal or some other form of recognition. All I can do is to tell you that your efforts have not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. You will always have the gratitude; devotion and affection of the Veterans whom you loved. If you have suggestions or comments on this section of the Citizen please contact me at urperssec@ yahoo.com CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 23 provided valuable jewelry for our gift baskets, and the Star Banner provided advertising. We gratefully thank all these businesses for their philanthropy and for caring about their community. Wed also like to thank all the local businesses who gave us gifts for our gift baskets. Our gift basket raffle was a huge success. Although we dont have room to personally thank everyone individually here, you may be seeing people coming to your establishments after winning gift certificates for breakfast or dinner, manicures and pedicures, massages, and flowers among other items. These gift baskets were a large part of the evening and we are also extremely grateful for your community support. Throughout the evening, a PowerPoint presentation continuously looped on three big screens, showing our guests many of the animals and organizations we have helped over the years. Thanks to all who worked on this beautiful presentation. Finally, we could not have put on such a big event without the hard work and enthusiasm of our SPCA president, Dr. Beverly Carver. No one worked harder at every stage to get this fundraiser up and running and to become a reality. We hope all our guests had as great a time as we did. Our mission is to help the animals in need in Marion County, and because of the success of this fundraiser, we can help more animals in the upcoming months lead better lives.

The SPCA of Marion Countys Gone Bunco It may have been rainy and dreary outside on Friday evening, May 2, but it was all sunshine and smiles inside the Klein Center at the College of Central Florida for the SPCAs gala fundraiser, The SPCA of Marion Countys Gone Bunco. We heard guests entering the Center say something smells good, referring to the delicious catering provided by the College of Central Florida. Before bunco began, guests dined on Swedish meatballs, pork and vegetable egg rolls, bruschetta, vegetable and fruit platters, cheese and crackers and other assorted delights. For dessert, tasty brownies and cookies shaped like dog bones with SPCA written on them were the highlights. Each table had a centerpiece filled with dog bones and flowers. You can see that the college went all out for us and were deeply grateful. First, wed like to thank everyone who braved the bad weather and came out to support us. We all had fun playing bunco and laughing with friends and neighbors. More than half the guests never played bunco before, but its an easy game to learn, and each table was given a quick tutorial before play began. At the end of the evening, prizes were given out for most buncos and most wins. Then about 20 gift baskets were raffled off, so many people went home with a valuable remembrance of the evening. Wed next like to thank Betty Thayer, who was our bunco MC. She did a superb job calling out the games and providing instructions. Everyone was impressed with her ability to clearly get bunco novices moving in the right direction. We could not have had an orderly, fun evening without the help of the students from the West Port High School Key Club, led by Mr. Waters. They gave out playing instructions, helped us move to neighboring tables, stamped our cards for bunco, and helped people with mobility issues. Many guests commended the young men and women for their work and the SPCA seconds that. We could not have put this evening on at all without the support of our major sponsors. In alphabetical order they are: A Family Veterinarian, led by Dr. Ed, Ark Storage, the College of Central Florida, Frank DeLuca of DeLuca Toyota, Panther Printing, Roger Hunt Diamonds, and the Star Banner. Dr. Ed of A Family Veterinarian provides medical care to our foster animals, and works with us to provide financial aid to needy families for their medical bills. Ark Storage donated storage space for the kibble and treats we pack for the Pets on Wheels Program. The College of Central Florida provided the Klein Center, catering, beautifully decorated tables, clean up, and flyer design. Frank De Luca of DeLuca Toyota gave us a generous donation for this event. Panther Printing donates our printing needs, including the beautiful new SPCA brochures, event flyers, letterhead, and pens. Roger Hunt Diamonds Another year has gone by and I find myself facing the same quandary I faced last year. I was hoping somehow this year would be different, but, alas, it is not. Many people complain about how fast things are changing, I complain about those things that do not change at all. Interestingly, the things you want to change refuse to do so and the things you want to stay the same never do. I wish someone would figure out how to reverse this tedious trend of life. I have worked on it but to no success. I am referring to the annual Mothers Day card fetish. I am not sure where this started or why, but I have my suspicions. I think we can safely rule out husbands and men as suspects. I could see a man doing it one year, but to do it year after year is not within the scope of a mans ability. If a man does something one time and it is successful he never chances doing it the second time when it may be a failure. Now we have on our hands tremendous pressure to purchase a yearly Mothers Day card. When it comes to card buying, I simply do not know where to go. Oh, I know where to get them; I simply do not know which one to purchase. If it was up to me, and let me point out very quickly, it is not, I would have one card for sale each year. Maybe I would modify the card each year and perhaps write something different in it, but how many ways can you say Happy Mothers Day? To be efficient the choice would only be one Mothers Day card per year. As it stands (and I wish it would sit down and rest for a while), there are more Mothers Day cards than stars in the heavens. It is virtually impossible to pick out the right Mothers Day card. Since I do not keep up with the latest trends in this regard I am at quite a disadvantage. One year I tried to remedy my Mothers Day card-buying dilemma by buying a box of 50 cards that were on sale right after Mothers Day. I thought I had hit the mother lode, so to speak. With this purchase, I had enough Mothers Day cards to last my entire lifetime. Unless, of course, I live to be 129. This lasted for two years. The first year I presented my Mothers Day card to my wife and she gave me all kinds of smiles and hugs. I was relieved to have solved a big problem in my home. I now could rest and focus on solving other problems in my life, of which there are many. It was the second year that kicked me in the teeth. As usual, that year, I presented my wife with her Mothers Day card. Trust me; I was not fully geared up for the response I got. I was expecting smiles and hugs like the year before. What I got was a glare and a shrug. She looked at me and said something I shall never forget. Isnt this the same card you gave me last year? How do wives remember these things? The only reason I knew it was the same card as last year is I had more just like it in the box it came from. Apparently, good protocol rules out giving the same card two years in a row. Who knew? I didnt. To have a problem unsolved is a very nerve-racking experience, to be sure. Now I must go back and start the whole Mothers Day card buying process over again. This brings me to the second part of my quandary. When did it become necessary for husbands to buy their wives Mothers Day cards? Sure, she washes my clothes, cooks my meals and bosses me about. She still is not my mother. It starts out rather innocently enough as most things do. Then, in my opinion, it gets out of hand. When the children start coming into the home it is quite natural, because they are too young to make such important decisions, for the father to buy the Mothers Day card on behalf of the children. I still remember that first Mothers Day card. Our first baby was only seven months old and had no idea what was going on in the world or even in the home. I gave my wife her first Mothers Day card. She was so excited. Because she was excited, so was I. This is where the whole nonsense starts. What I want to know is when do hus-Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder My Mothers Day card quandary PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, May 15th, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. This is the first meeting after our fundraiser The SPCA of Marion Countys Gone Bunco. We will share the details of the big event and discuss new business. Please call our special hotline number at 352-3620985 for more information about our meeting or to contact us for any reason. The SPCA is low on dog food for the Pets on Wheels program. This program provides dog and cat food for people with pets who receive Meals on Wheels. Kibble can be dropped off in the SPCA bin at Winn Dixie in Friendship Center. You can also call us and well arrange an alternate pick up or drop off. Please note that we dont accept any food or treats made in China, so please check before donating. Thank you all for your generosity.Adoption NewsThe SPCA is happy to report that our foster dog Toby, the rat terrier, has been adopted into a loving home. We thank everyone who called to inquire about him. For anyone interested in adopting a very small dog, we are helping a neighbor and another organization place special dogs. First up are Corky and Wren, the adorable Chihuahua siblings pictured here. Their owner died without having a family member or friend available to take them in, so they have been at the Humane Society in Ocala since March 13. Brother and sister are 11 years old, are devoted to one another, and need to be adopted together. Corky and Wren are friendly, healthy and very loving. They walk great on a leash and love to go for walks. At 11, they are spry and active because Chihuahuas can live up to 20 years. So if you adopt them, you can have many happy years together. Please dont let their age deter you. They get along well with other dogs, even if theyre only 6 lbs. They hold their own when turned out in the pen with the other dogs at the shelter. We dont know about cats, but at their size, theyre smaller than most cats. Corky is the black and white spayed female, and Wren is the brown and white neutered male. They have come a long way at the Humane Society since their first day there, when they clung to each other in bewilderment, huddled in a corner. They think that every person who comes in wants to take them back to their home, as if they have been waiting for a vacation to end. The siblings would make perfect companions for a gentle senior person or family, or any gentle person without children who would be too rough for them. Many people who visit the Humane Society come with children in tow and are looking for large active dogs. Thats why were highlighting Corky and Wren here. Perhaps you are that special person who can open your heart and home to two loving senior pets in need. To visit or inquire about Corky and Wren, please call the Humane Society at (352) 873-7387. A neighbor has called us to help place a little Yorkie who needs to find a new home. We dont have a picture yet, but Next SPCA meeting scheduled for May 15 we all know what a Yorkie looks like. Jack is only three years old and is living in a home with small children, which is inappropriate for such a small dog. Jacks owner thinks it is best to rehome him so that Jack doesnt have to worry about children inadvertently injuring him. Please give Erin a call at 352-6534154 if youre interested in meeting or learning more about this sweet, loving boy. We just received a new photo of Arlenes cats Panda, Smokey and Ebony. Coco is also available, but he didnt want to come to this food party. They have grown into wonderful cats who need to find their own homes. They have been so well cared for and socialized in foster care that you know you will be getting a great pet. Please call Arlene at 352-875-9761 to meet them.Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. Paws & Claws Maria Devine This is Corky and Wren.

We have a picture of a sweet little girl happily holding a colorful blanket of her very own. Another sweet little girl was wearing her new sweater; she had rat bites on her forehead. Our work makes us realize the blessings that we ourselves have in being able to give. Donations of yarn (and even money and gift cards) have made much of our work possible, and most of us also purchase supplies from our own pockets. Anything you may have that we could use would be very much appreciated. Just drop it off in Geris office or better yet, visit us on a Friday afternoon. A special thank you to Lolly Dobson for her generous donation of yarn. Welcome to Ruth Bartlett; our newest very talented member. All are welcome to join us on Friday afternoons from 1 to 3 in the card/library room of the clubhouse. Any one of us would be happy to help out with your own project; or even teach someone willing to learn. The coffee pot is always on.Ladies luncheonOnce again on Wednesday, May 14, our ladies will gather in the clubhouse for a great lunch and informal social get together. The rules for attending this good time are quite simple. First, you must be a female; second, you need to bring a favorite dish to pass around; and third, youll need to bring a place setting of dishes and silver for yourself. Oh, and just as importantly as these first three items; bring along your smile and sense of humor. Our ladies meet at noon for this always fun event. Be a part of this great group as they gather to share friendship and fellowship in a relaxed atmosphere. Youll be glad that you attended.TriviaThe sharpest minds at Cherrywood are tuning up for this months Trivia Night challenge. This is a gathering of brilliant individuals that come together similar to a Mensa meeting and join forces to answer a wide variety of difficult and tricky questions. Okay, so I exaggerate. In truth we are just a group of mostly average and arguably normal people having some laughs and a good time. At 7 p.m. we get together in the clubhouse. After paying the exorbitant fee of $1 per person to enter; we divide into teams. Each team gets an answer sheet and then they try to give the best answers to questions put up on the big screen. Our quiz master this month is Fred OHern who will be asking questions on subjects such as; sports; entertainment; Memorial Day; general knowledge and more. Fred is always good at coming up with some special questions to stump our players. The winning team receives a small cash prize and more importantly; bragging rights for the entire month. All proceeds from Trivia go to the Patriot Dog Project so youll have a blast and support a worthy charity as well. Come join us. Boat TripOn May 20 the Veterans Club is sponsoring a boat trip down the Chassahowitzka River. Captain Kens River Wildlife Tours is our excursion provider and guide at a cost of just $20 per person.

Looking back over my experience, I can see no way where I can opt out of this annual event. The last child in our home left more than 15 years ago and still I find myself under the awesome pressure of purchasing a Mothers Day card for my wife. When do the children take control of this yearly responsibility? In spite of my quandary, it is important to honor both fathers and mothers. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth (Ephesians 6:2-3). Would anybody want to buy a box of 48 Mothers Day cards, cheap?Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

It was about an elderly couple. The wife becomes very sick but wants to die at home. Her husband is her caretaker with a bit of help from paid workers. It was easy to notice how strong their love was for each other. Watching their decline was depressing. The film was slow moving with spaces having no action or talking. It leant a certain peacefulness and calmness that is rarely shown in Hollywood movies.New England ClubSubmitted by: Donnamarie Castellano, PresidentThursday, May 15 will be our last social of the season.

More than 50 residents gathered in the clubhouse at Cherrywood to share in the excitement of the 140th run for the roses. California Chrome proved why it was the favorite to win with a brilliantly run race. Everyone brought their own refreshments which varied from miniature pizzas to Ardies delicious homemade cookies. Race fans were able to sample some traditional mint juleps and Kentucky bourbon as well as enjoy their own beverages. A dozen beautifully decorated hats and bonnets were set on the tables to be judged. The contestants went all out this year and Janice McLeod and Marty Duesel had their hands full as they tallied the ballots. Newcomer to Cherrywood Carol Irwin won first place; second place went to Holly Bragdon and Sandee Spencer took third. We congratulate our winners and thank all who entered the contest. Three winners were selected for the 50/50 drawing winning cash prizes of varied amounts. One of the winners was Jay OHern which was slightly suspicious as he heads the Social Committee that hosted the event. Seriously, congratulations are in order for the outstanding job done by our Social Committee in sponsoring this event and providing a great evening of exciting entertainment for all. We will all be looking forward to next year thanks to their efforts.Survivors honored at AppletonNearly 20 survivors of Veterans Club members were treated to a fantastic luncheon at the Appleton Museum thanks to the generosity of our friend and benefactor; Norman. The anonymous person we call Norman is an Army veteran himself and personally arranges for our survivors outings. The specially catered meal was not only delicious but was presented beautifully. During the luncheon a raffle was held and many guests received exquisite scarves direct from the museums gift shop. These brightly colored and expertly made wraps were greatly appreciated by all who won them. The gifts were just another touch of class added by Norman to the festivities. It was my privilege to address this group of special ladies. As everyone knows the second toughest job in the world is to be in the military; the toughest is to love someone in the military. Because of their courage; their sacrifices; their nurturing; nursing; caring for and sharing the dreams of their veteran husbands they are our heroes. Our Veterans Club and those of us who are still here will never forget them or fail to honor who they are and what they have given. Immediately following the luncheon the ladies were given a personal guided tour of the museum and its current display of beautiful tapestries and other unique exhibits. For many of the ladies this was their first visit to the Appleton and they made it a memorable one.. The Veterans Club would like to thank our hostesses; Ruth Hurley; Ida Mahar and Christl Giovanniello for providing the organizational skills and grace that made this outing so special.Spring Fling dance On Saturday, May 17 the Activities Team will host the Spring Fling dance. Doors open at 7 p.m. and thats when Rich Becotte will fire up your favorite tunes for your dancing and listening enjoyment. Ask Rich for any song and its very likely hell have it in his vast repertoire. Snacks and hors doeuvres will be available along with lemonade and iced tea but if you would like to bring your own drinks and eatables; youre welcome to do that also. Tickets are only $2 each and can be gotten from Geri in the office. We expect a good crowd to be there for this informal and fun time so get your tickets soon. Neat eats; great music and good friends; it doesnt get any better than that.Veterans Golf TournamentJune 7, is the day set for our Veterans Golf Open. It will be here quickly so all golfers are urged to contact either John Everlove at 352-509-4428 or Rich Hurley at 352-873-7208 to make reservations for this terrific day of golf and sportsmanship. The beautiful Ocala Palms Golf and Country Club is the venue for this special outing. Players will check in at 7:15 and then go to a hearty pancake breakfast. Immediately following that meal, a Goodie Bag will be presented to each player and then the golfers will proceed to get their carts. Once on the course, the shotgun start will be given and the competition will begin. Prizes will be awarded for different flights of players so whether you are a pro or a duffer, you will still have a chance to win. There will also be a closest to the pin contest and a huge prize for a hole in one. All during the match, a courtesy cart will be roving the area with liquid refreshments to make sure that none of our players get dehydrated. Once the 18 holes of golf are completed the starter and judges will tally the scores while our players dine on a catered luncheon. In between courses you will be able to stroll through the items on our silent auction and bid on a bevy of gifts. For the small donation of just $50 each, golfers can have all this and a wonderful day on the links. If youve ever wanted to have a great day of golf and help a worthy cause at the same time; this is your opportunity. Call Rich or John today and reserve a place for yourself or your twosome; threesome or foursome. Shred your documentsFriday, May 9, from 1 until 3 in the afternoon you will have the opportunity to shred those documents that have been piling up around your house.

The cost for this service is nominal so you are urged to gather your unwanted and unneeded papers together and bring them to the clubhouse. Cherrywood Crochet & Knitting ClubArticle provided by Edna Fazio President of the Crochet and Knitting Club It doesnt seem possible that we are already into May with summer weather already here. Seeing neighbors and friends gardens in beautiful bloom is a friendly welcoming sight. While listening to our pastors sermon on Sunday, the similarity between his message and our crafting group suddenly struck me. It was about unselfishly giving of your talent without expecting anything in return. The ladies in our group work endless hours creating items for those in need. Weve heard stories from Scott Hackmyer; our go-between who distributes the baby sweaters; hats; toys; blankets; bibs; shawls; chemo hats and afghans for cancer patients; lap blankets for nursing homes etc., all hand made, to the various charities in need of these items. Young mothers who have nothing else for their newborn baby or older children gratefully accept a donated sweater; blanket or hat with tears in their eyes. at the meeting. Remember: You dont have to come from New England to join our club; you just need a love of New England!

We seek to teach those desiring to follow Him, who God is and who He expects us to be.

Dear readers, things are really slowing down here in Oak Run. The Bingo players enjoyed their first night of playing in a different club. All around it was a good move. Please take note of two important articles re: Jacob OHern and Reading Pals. We as seniors have so many opportunities to reach out and help others and because of our life experiences the abilities to make a difference. I am especially pleased that we have the South Marion Citizen to publish not just the news of our neighborhoods but the needs of so many groups, etc. May is the month to enjoy both Mothers Day and Memorial Day, so please do. Now to the activities reported. LauraHorseshoe championJimmy Scott, an Oak Run resident since October 2013 and a member of the Oak Run Horseshoe Pitching League, placed first in his class at the Florida State Horseshoe Pitching Tournament held April 23 through the 26 in Beverly Hills, Florida. Scott went 5-0 and averaged 42.4 ringer percentage. The Florida State Tournament is sanctioned by the National Horseshoe Pitchers Association. The Executive Council of the FSHPA selects a different location each year to stage the tournament. Last year the tournament was held at the Clearwater Horseshoe Courts. Scott also placed first in doubles class in Clearwater last year. The 2015 State Tournament will be held at the horseshoe courts near Flagler Beach. To enter a Florida State Tournament you must have participated in at least 5 Florida State sanctioned tournaments or one sanctioned league and four sanctioned tournaments prior to April 1 of that year.Reading PalsThe Reading Pals program is in 15 schools in Marion County. The volunteers meet with the student for two sessions of 30 minutes each and after the second session the child gets to take the book home for their own private library. The students in this program have been identified as needing additional support in Math and Language Arts based on their test scores coming into kindergarten. There are a variety of ways that the program could be supported. Since we give a book a week to the students clubs can provide funding for a student for the school year, they can provide funding for a book for one week for the program or they can volunteer to be a Reading Pal. If people are interested in volunteering they can come to the June 6 training being offered at Oak Run only if they call Jan Hathaway first to discuss the program. This allows me to answer any questions that they might have as well as assure that we have adequate supplies for the training session. Thanks so very much for your support of the Reading Pals program. Jan Hathaway, Reading Pals, Literacy Manager P: 352-732-9696 Ext. 212, F: 352-732-9608.

Some important decisions and dates have been set for the Performing Arts Company of Oak Runs fall musical production. The production will be announced at the May 12 7 p.m. meeting in the Palm Grove. As this marks the beginning of the production process, members are encouraged to bring a guest. As well, those interested in at least taking a look at the company are urged to attend. The reading and selection committee are tighter than a drum on the secret selection and have refused all overtures to divulge the news. What we do know is this: It will be a cast and chorus-intensive production and an all-out effort will be made to recruit new performers to the company. Dick Caza, who is the Company president, will undertake directing this musical with two assistants. Marci Hutto will direct music and score. Shari Weber will direct choreography. Bruce McDuffee will head up stage and set construction. Well have six major roles with a lead role of great importance. This gives the company the chance to showcase a chosen performer for this role. I anticipate there will be at least four or five auditioning for the lead, comments Caza. Additionally, Dick mentions, we intend to reach out to other musical clubs and even the hidden talent in Oak Run to fill major and chorus roles. Now is the time to join the fun! The directors intend to streamline rehearsals so that the time required for chorus and actors is efficiently developed. Here are the key dates: Announcement of production May 12 company meeting, Palm Grove 7 p.m. Call Dick Caza if you miss this meeting and would like to know what the production will be. 352/274-9574.

The American Cancer Society this week announced that The Weather Channel will be a national partner supporting the Societys Relay For Life fundraising events. The morning show team from AMHQ with Sam Champion will be the on air talent for the partnership. The Atlanta-based television network will raise funds for the American Cancer Societys fight against cancer and will be a national media partner for the Societys Relay events. The Weather Channel will promote Relay For Life in a campaign which includes on-air promos, online content, social media and program elements within AMHQ. Co-hosts Sam Champion, Maria LaRosa, Mike Bettes and Anaridis Rodriguez will each team up with a cancer survivor to raise funds and encourage people to join community relay events. Viewers can follow the teams progress through periodic updates on air and through the networks digital platforms. In addition, The Weather Channel will promote sun safety through the partnership and provide local weather information for the thousands of outdoor events which take place throughout the country. All of us at the American Cancer Society are delighted to have The Weather Channel as the newest national partner of our Relay For Life program, said John Seffrin, Ph.D., the Societys Chief Executive Officer. On Sunday we celebrate Mothers Day to show honor and respect to one of the most influential persons in our lives. We all spent the most formative years of our lives with our mothers. Our tour down Pun Alley takes us to some motherly tales.Mothers adviceIn the supermarket a mother was pushing a cart that contained her screaming, bellowing baby. The mother kept repeating softly, Dont get excited, Monica; dont scream, Monica; dont yell, Monica; keep calm, Monica. A woman standing next to the mother said, You certainly are to be commended for trying to soothe your daughter Monica. The mother looked at her and said, Her name is Mary. Im Monica. Real promotionTommy, just home from the last day of school was real happy. I didnt know my second grade teacher liked me so much, Mommy, he confided. I heard her talking to one of the other teachers, and she must be awfully fond of me! Do you know what she said? No, what did she say? his mother asked. She said that the happiest day of her life was when Tommy was promoted to the third grade.Grandmas recipeSuzanne was preparing a ham dinner. After she cut off the end of the ham, she placed it in a pan for baking. Her friend asked her, Why did you cut off the end of the ham? She replied, I really dont know but my mother always did, so I thought you were supposed to. Later when talking to her mother she asked her why she cut off the end of the ham before baking it, and her mother replied, I really dont know, but thats the way my mom always did it. A few weeks later, while visiting her grandmother, Suzanne asked, Grandma, why is it that you cut off the end of a ham before you bake it? Her grandmother replied, Well dear, it would never fit into my baking pan.A real pick-me-up A teacher gave her class of second graders a lesson on the magnet and what it does. The next day in a written test, she included this question, My full name has six letters. The first one is M. I am strong and attractive. I pick up things. What am I? When the test papers were turned in, the teacher was astonished to find that almost half of the students answered the question with the word Mother.A mother asksIs there a magic cutoff period when offspring become accountable for their own actions? Is there a wonderful moment when mothers can become detached spectators in the lives of their children and shrug, Its their life, and feel nothing? When I was in my twenties, I stood in a hospital corridor waiting for doctors to put a few stitches in my sons head. I asked, When do you stop worrying? The nurse said, When they get out of the accident stage. When I was in my thirties, I sat on a little chair in a classroom and heard how one of my children talked incessantly and disrupted the class. As if to read my mind, a teacher said, Dont worry, they all go through this stage and then you can sit back, relax and enjoy them. When I was in my forties, I spent a lifetime waiting for the phone to ring, the cars to come home, the front door to open. A friend said, Theyre trying to find themselves. Dont worry in a few years you can stop worrying. Theyll be adults. By the time I was 50, I was sick and tired of being vulnerable. I was still worrying over my children, but there was a new wrinkle. There was nothing I could do about it. I continued to anguish over their failures, be tormented by their frustrations and absorbed in their disappointments. My friends said that when my kids got married I could stop worrying and lead my own life. Can it be that mothers are sentenced to a lifetime of worry? Is concern for one another handed down like a torch to blaze the trail of human frailties and the fears of the unknown? One of my children became quite irritable recently, saying to me, Where were you? Ive been calling for 3 days, and no one answered. I was worried. I smiled a little. The torch has been passed. Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com of the Jewish holiday of Lag BOmer, which is traditionally commemorated by large outdoor celebrations and bonfires, which harbor spiritual significance. Chabad-Lubavitch, the largest Jewish outreach organization in the world, is hosting thousands of similar Lag BOmer celebrations in cities across the globe. The celebrations all share a common theme: Jewish Unity. Lag BOmer marks the passing nearly two thousand years ago of the great Talmudic sage, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai. He is best known as the author of the Zohar, the fundamental text of the Jewish mystical tradition, the Kabbalah. On the day of his passing, Rabbi Shimon instructed his disciples to mark the date as the day of my joy. The holiday also marks the end of a tragic epidemic which killed 24,000 students of the great Talmudic sage Rabbi Akiva, who served as Rabbi Shimons teacher. On Lag BOmer the dying ceased. Thus Lag BOmer also carries the theme of Ahavat Yisrael, the imperative to love and respect ones fellow. About Lag BOmer: Lag BOmer is literally translated as the thirty third day of the Omer, a period of seven weeks between Passover, which commemorates the Jewish peoples Exodus from Egypt, and Shavout, which commemorates the giving of the Ten Commandments. For more information on ChabadLubavitch Jewish Center of Marion Countys Lag BOmer festivities or on the holiday of Lag BOmer and its observances, contact Rabbi Yossi or Chanie Hecht at 352-291-2218 or email info@jewishMarion.org or visit our website at www.JewishMarion.org.

Join us in the Lifestyle Center on Tuesday, May 20, after the Social, for a 30 to 45 minute program by Tom Gerardi, assistant vice president and financial advisor at Suntrust Investment Services. He will give us an overview of the current financial market, which will include information on global stocks, bonds, equities, commodities and real estate. Please note that this presentation is a general performance summary of the market presented for informational purposes only. It should not be taken as advice for your personal investing strategy. If you would like to learn more about this topic, please mark your calendar for Tuesday at 9:30 a.m.Bunka ShishuBunka Shishu translates to painting with thread and needles and is an art form that has been in existence in one form or another since the 11th century. In its present form, it began in Tokyo about 75 years ago. A finished picture often resembles a finely detailed oil painting with the thread providing the texture and colors and the artists workmanship providing the depth of the overall picture. Because each piece reflects the artists individual handiwork, no two pictures can ever look exactly alike. There are currently two classes offered in Bunka Shishu at the Lifestyle Center. The Wednesday Bunka class meets from 2 to 4 p.m. and is led by Margaret Nelson, ABEA certified instructor; and our newest Bunka class, which includes a teaching segment, individual instruction and practice time, meets on Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. It is led by Evelyn Brown, ABEA master teacher and master judge with 33 years of teaching experience. (ABEAAmerican Bunka Embroidery Association is a not for profit association designed to promote, teach and enjoy the art of Japanese Bunka Embroidery.) Each class is $5, payable to the instructor, plus the cost of your kit. Beginners are welcome. Please stop by if you would like to speak with the instructor about joining their class.Graduates of Citizens AcademyThe Marion County Sheriffs Citizens Academy and Partnership (CAP) program offers a free 12-week educational course about the operations of the Sheriffs Office, and five Marion Landing residents completed the program in April. During the program, MCSO staff highlighted all units within the Sheriffs Office and presented citizens with an in-depth understanding of what the agency does for theFriday, May 9, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Our next blood drive is scheduled for Wednesday, May 21. The blood mobile will be in the Lifestyle Center parking lot from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. to take your donation. You may sign up on the Blood Drive sheet hanging on the Activity Wall, or see Pat Wurst, blood drive coordinator, and her volunteers in the lobby the day the bus is here. Pat reminds us that all donations collected at our blood drives stay within Marion County. According to the American Red Cross, if all eligible donors would donate blood on a regular basis, four to six times a year, blood needs would be met and shortages could be a thing of the past. For decades this nation relied on a large pool of blood donors from the heroic World War II veterans who considered blood donation to be an ongoing patriotic duty. That generation is fast disappearing and we need other new donors to step forward to take their place. Be assured, donating blood is safe and a healthy thing to do. Not only do you get a free mini physical, including blood pressure check, heart rate, temperature and iron levels, but its the fastest way to lose a pound. And for men, there is a life-saving benefit to donating blood. Men are at higher risk for hemochromatosis, or iron overload, which is a potentially deadly problem where too much iron builds up in their blood. It can lead to heart disease and other major health problems. Research shows that if men give blood three times a year, they can reduce their iron overload and therefore their risk of a heart attack by as much as 50%. Blood donors are true heroes, and your single blood donation can save up to three lives. So roll up your sleeves and do your part to help Floridas Blood Centers, the only blood bank that serves Marion County hospitals.Cool fun in the hot sunWith the temperature heating up, why not start the day with cool morning water exercise? Aquatic exercise is a low-impact activity that takes the pressure off your bones, joints and muscles. Water offers natural resistance, which helps strengthen your muscles, and you can even do aquatic exercise if you dont know how to swim. Water exercise begins Monday, May 12, (weather permitting) with Water Aerobics meeting Monday through Friday at 8:45 a.m., except on Tuesday when it begins at 9:30 after the Coffee Social, and Aquacize meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 a.m. Just stop by the pool no signup is required and its free. Do something good for your body, mind and spirit. Start your day with water exercise in the pool. Fun Fashion ShowRetiree fashion was the theme for the fundraiser fun fashion show, which gave Marion Landing residents an opportunity to support the Sunshine Committee while enjoying an afternoon of good fun, fellowship and excellent homemade salads and dessert.

The morning show team from AMHQ with Sam Champion will be the on air talent for the partnership. The Atlanta-based television network will raise funds for the American Cancer Societys fight against cancer and will be a national media partner for the Societys Relay events. The Weather Channel will promote Relay For Life in a campaign which includes on-air promos, online content, social media and program elements within AMHQ. Co-hosts Sam Champion, Maria LaRosa, Mike Bettes and Anaridis Rodriguez will each team up with a cancer survivor to raise funds and encourage people to join community relay events. Viewers can follow the teams progress through periodic updates on air and through the networks digital platforms. In addition, The Weather Channel will promote sun safety through the partnership and provide local weather information for the thousands of outdoor events which take place throughout the country. All of us at the American Cancer Society are delighted to have The Weather Channel as the newest national partner of our Relay For Life program, said John Seffrin, Ph.D., the Societys Chief Executive Officer. On Sunday we celebrate Mothers Day to show honor and respect to one of the most influential persons in our lives. We all spent the most formative years of our lives with our mothers. Our tour down Pun Alley takes us to some motherly tales.Mothers adviceIn the supermarket a mother was pushing a cart that contained her screaming, bellowing baby. The mother kept repeating softly, Dont get excited, Monica; dont scream, Monica; dont yell, Monica; keep calm, Monica. A woman standing next to the mother said, You certainly are to be commended for trying to soothe your daughter Monica. The mother looked at her and said, Her name is Mary. Im Monica. Real promotionTommy, just home from the last day of school was real happy. I didnt know my second grade teacher liked me so much, Mommy, he confided. I heard her talking to one of the other teachers, and she must be awfully fond of me! Do you know what she said? No, what did she say? his mother asked. She said that the happiest day of her life was when Tommy was promoted to the third grade.Grandmas recipeSuzanne was preparing a ham dinner. After she cut off the end of the ham, she placed it in a pan for baking. Her friend asked her, Why did you cut off the end of the ham? She replied, I really dont know but my mother always did, so I thought you were supposed to. Later when talking to her mother she asked her why she cut off the end of the ham before baking it, and her mother replied, I really dont know, but thats the way my mom always did it. A few weeks later, while visiting her grandmother, Suzanne asked, Grandma, why is it that you cut off the end of a ham before you bake it? Her grandmother replied, Well dear, it would never fit into my baking pan.A real pick-me-up A teacher gave her class of second graders a lesson on the magnet and what it does. The next day in a written test, she included this question, My full name has six letters. The first one is M. I am strong and attractive. I pick up things. What am I? When the test papers were turned in, the teacher was astonished to find that almost half of the students answered the question with the word Mother.A mother asksIs there a magic cutoff period when offspring become accountable for their own actions? Is there a wonderful moment when mothers can become detached spectators in the lives of their children and shrug, Its their life, and feel nothing? When I was in my twenties, I stood in a hospital corridor waiting for doctors to put a few stitches in my sons head. I asked, When do you stop worrying? The nurse said, When they get out of the accident stage. When I was in my thirties, I sat on a little chair in a classroom and heard how one of my children talked incessantly and disrupted the class. As if to read my mind, a teacher said, Dont worry, they all go through this stage and then you can sit back, relax and enjoy them. When I was in my forties, I spent a lifetime waiting for the phone to ring, the cars to come home, the front door to open. A friend said, Theyre trying to find themselves. Dont worry in a few years you can stop worrying. Theyll be adults. By the time I was 50, I was sick and tired of being vulnerable. I was still worrying over my children, but there was a new wrinkle. There was nothing I could do about it. I continued to anguish over their failures, be tormented by their frustrations and absorbed in their disappointments. My friends said that when my kids got married I could stop worrying and lead my own life. Can it be that mothers are sentenced to a lifetime of worry? Is concern for one another handed down like a torch to blaze the trail of human frailties and the fears of the unknown? One of my children became quite irritable recently, saying to me, Where were you? Ive been calling for 3 days, and no one answered. I was worried. I smiled a little. The torch has been passed. Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com of the Jewish holiday of Lag BOmer, which is traditionally commemorated by large outdoor celebrations and bonfires, which harbor spiritual significance. Chabad-Lubavitch, the largest Jewish outreach organization in the world, is hosting thousands of similar Lag BOmer celebrations in cities across the globe. The celebrations all share a common theme: Jewish Unity. Lag BOmer marks the passing nearly two thousand years ago of the great Talmudic sage, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai. He is best known as the author of the Zohar, the fundamental text of the Jewish mystical tradition, the Kabbalah. On the day of his passing, Rabbi Shimon instructed his disciples to mark the date as the day of my joy. The holiday also marks the end of a tragic epidemic which killed 24,000 students of the great Talmudic sage Rabbi Akiva, who served as Rabbi Shimons teacher. On Lag BOmer the dying ceased. Thus Lag BOmer also carries the theme of Ahavat Yisrael, the imperative to love and respect ones fellow. About Lag BOmer: Lag BOmer is literally translated as the thirty third day of the Omer, a period of seven weeks between Passover, which commemorates the Jewish peoples Exodus from Egypt, and Shavout, which commemorates the giving of the Ten Commandments. For more information on ChabadLubavitch Jewish Center of Marion Countys Lag BOmer festivities or on the holiday of Lag BOmer and its observances, contact Rabbi Yossi or Chanie Hecht at 352-291-2218 or email info@jewishMarion.org or visit our website at www.JewishMarion.org. All are welcome! No membership or affiliation is required. RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 Hospice volunteers needed\Volunteers Needed.

Dear readers, things are really slowing down here in Oak Run. The Bingo players enjoyed their first night of playing in a different club. All around it was a good move. Please take note of two important articles re: Jacob OHern and Reading Pals. We as seniors have so many opportunities to reach out and help others and because of our life experiences the abilities to make a difference. I am especially pleased that we have the South Marion Citizen to publish not just the news of our neighborhoods but the needs of so many groups, etc. May is the month to enjoy both Mothers Day and Memorial Day, so please do. Now to the activities reported. LauraHorseshoe championJimmy Scott, an Oak Run resident since October 2013 and a member of the Oak Run Horseshoe Pitching League, placed first in his class at the Florida State Horseshoe Pitching Tournament held April 23 through the 26 in Beverly Hills, Florida. Scott went 5-0 and averaged 42.4 ringer percentage. The Florida State Tournament is sanctioned by the National Horseshoe Pitchers Association. The Executive Council of the FSHPA selects a different location each year to stage the tournament. Last year the tournament was held at the Clearwater Horseshoe Courts. Scott also placed first in doubles class in Clearwater last year. The 2015 State Tournament will be held at the horseshoe courts near Flagler Beach. To enter a Florida State Tournament you must have participated in at least 5 Florida State sanctioned tournaments or one sanctioned league and four sanctioned tournaments prior to April 1 of that year.Reading PalsThe Reading Pals program is in 15 schools in Marion County. The volunteers meet with the student for two sessions of 30 minutes each and after the second session the child gets to take the book home for their own private library. The students in this program have been identified as needing additional support in Math and Language Arts based on their test scores coming into kindergarten. There are a variety of ways that the program could be supported. Since we give a book a week to the students clubs can provide funding for a student for the school year, they can provide funding for a book for one week for the program or they can volunteer to be a Reading Pal. If people are interested in volunteering they can come to the June 6 training being offered at Oak Run only if they call Jan Hathaway first to discuss the program. This allows me to answer any questions that they might have as well as assure that we have adequate supplies for the training session. Thanks so very much for your support of the Reading Pals program. Jan Hathaway, Reading Pals, Literacy Manager P: 352-732-9696 Ext. 212, F: 352-732-9608.

Some important decisions and dates have been set for the Performing Arts Company of Oak Runs fall musical production. The production will be announced at the May 12 7 p.m. meeting in the Palm Grove. As this marks the beginning of the production process, members are encouraged to bring a guest. As well, those interested in at least taking a look at the company are urged to attend. The reading and selection committee are tighter than a drum on the secret selection and have refused all overtures to divulge the news. What we do know is this: It will be a cast and chorus-intensive production and an all-out effort will be made to recruit new performers to the company. Dick Caza, who is the Company president, will undertake directing this musical with two assistants. Marci Hutto will direct music and score. Shari Weber will direct choreography. Bruce McDuffee will head up stage and set construction. Well have six major roles with a lead role of great importance. This gives the company the chance to showcase a chosen performer for this role. I anticipate there will be at least four or five auditioning for the lead, comments Caza. Additionally, Dick mentions, we intend to reach out to other musical clubs and even the hidden talent in Oak Run to fill major and chorus roles. Now is the time to join the fun! The directors intend to streamline rehearsals so that the time required for chorus and actors is efficiently developed. Here are the key dates: Announcement of production May 12 company meeting, Palm Grove 7 p.m. Call Dick Caza if you miss this meeting and would like to know what the production will be. 352/274-9574.

More than 50 residents gathered in the clubhouse at Cherrywood to share in the excitement of the 140th run for the roses. California Chrome proved why it was the favorite to win with a brilliantly run race. Everyone brought their own refreshments which varied from miniature pizzas to Ardies delicious homemade cookies. Race fans were able to sample some traditional mint juleps and Kentucky bourbon as well as enjoy their own beverages. A dozen beautifully decorated hats and bonnets were set on the tables to be judged. The contestants went all out this year and Janice McLeod and Marty Duesel had their hands full as they tallied the ballots. Newcomer to Cherrywood Carol Irwin won first place; second place went to Holly Bragdon and Sandee Spencer took third. We congratulate our winners and thank all who entered the contest. Three winners were selected for the 50/50 drawing winning cash prizes of varied amounts. One of the winners was Jay OHern which was slightly suspicious as he heads the Social Committee that hosted the event. Seriously, congratulations are in order for the outstanding job done by our Social Committee in sponsoring this event and providing a great evening of exciting entertainment for all. We will all be looking forward to next year thanks to their efforts.Survivors honored at AppletonNearly 20 survivors of Veterans Club members were treated to a fantastic luncheon at the Appleton Museum thanks to the generosity of our friend and benefactor; Norman. The anonymous person we call Norman is an Army veteran himself and personally arranges for our survivors outings. The specially catered meal was not only delicious but was presented beautifully. During the luncheon a raffle was held and many guests received exquisite scarves direct from the museums gift shop. These brightly colored and expertly made wraps were greatly appreciated by all who won them. The gifts were just another touch of class added by Norman to the festivities. It was my privilege to address this group of special ladies. As everyone knows the second toughest job in the world is to be in the military; the toughest is to love someone in the military. Because of their courage; their sacrifices; their nurturing; nursing; caring for and sharing the dreams of their veteran husbands they are our heroes. Our Veterans Club and those of us who are still here will never forget them or fail to honor who they are and what they have given. Immediately following the luncheon the ladies were given a personal guided tour of the museum and its current display of beautiful tapestries and other unique exhibits. For many of the ladies this was their first visit to the Appleton and they made it a memorable one.. The Veterans Club would like to thank our hostesses; Ruth Hurley; Ida Mahar and Christl Giovanniello for providing the organizational skills and grace that made this outing so special.Spring Fling dance On Saturday, May 17 the Activities Team will host the Spring Fling dance. Doors open at 7 p.m. and thats when Rich Becotte will fire up your favorite tunes for your dancing and listening enjoyment.

Snacks and hors doeuvres will be available along with lemonade and iced tea but if you would like to bring your own drinks and eatables; youre welcome to do that also. Tickets are only $2 each and can be gotten from Geri in the office. We expect a good crowd to be there for this informal and fun time so get your tickets soon. Neat eats; great music and good friends; it doesnt get any better than that.Veterans Golf TournamentJune 7, is the day set for our Veterans Golf Open. It will be here quickly so all golfers are urged to contact either John Everlove at 352-509-4428 or Rich Hurley at 352-873-7208 to make reservations for this terrific day of golf and sportsmanship. The beautiful Ocala Palms Golf and Country Club is the venue for this special outing. Players will check in at 7:15 and then go to a hearty pancake breakfast. Immediately following that meal, a Goodie Bag will be presented to each player and then the golfers will proceed to get their carts. Once on the course, the shotgun start will be given and the competition will begin. Prizes will be awarded for different flights of players so whether you are a pro or a duffer, you will still have a chance to win. There will also be a closest to the pin contest and a huge prize for a hole in one. All during the match, a courtesy cart will be roving the area with liquid refreshments to make sure that none of our players get dehydrated. Once the 18 holes of golf are completed the starter and judges will tally the scores while our players dine on a catered luncheon. In between courses you will be able to stroll through the items on our silent auction and bid on a bevy of gifts. For the small donation of just $50 each, golfers can have all this and a wonderful day on the links. If youve ever wanted to have a great day of golf and help a worthy cause at the same time; this is your opportunity. Call Rich or John today and reserve a place for yourself or your twosome; threesome or foursome.

The cost for this service is nominal so you are urged to gather your unwanted and unneeded papers together and bring them to the clubhouse. Cherrywood Crochet & Knitting ClubArticle provided by Edna Fazio President of the Crochet and Knitting Club It doesnt seem possible that we are already into May with summer weather already here. Seeing neighbors and friends gardens in beautiful bloom is a friendly welcoming sight. While listening to our pastors sermon on Sunday, the similarity between his message and our crafting group suddenly struck me. It was about unselfishly giving of your talent without expecting anything in return. The ladies in our group work endless hours creating items for those in need. Weve heard stories from Scott Hackmyer; our go-between who distributes the baby sweaters; hats; toys; blankets; bibs; shawls; chemo hats and afghans for cancer patients; lap blankets for nursing homes etc., all hand made, to the various charities in need of these items. Young mothers who have nothing else for their newborn baby or older children gratefully accept a donated sweater; blanket or hat with tears in their eyes. at the meeting. Remember: You dont have to come from New England to join our club; you just need a love of New England!

It was easy to notice how strong their love was for each other. Watching their decline was depressing. The film was slow moving with spaces having no action or talking.

We have a picture of a sweet little girl happily holding a colorful blanket of her very own. Another sweet little girl was wearing her new sweater; she had rat bites on her forehead. Our work makes us realize the blessings that we ourselves have in being able to give.

Anything you may have that we could use would be very much appreciated. Just drop it off in Geris office or better yet, visit us on a Friday afternoon. A special thank you to Lolly Dobson for her generous donation of yarn. Welcome to Ruth Bartlett; our newest very talented member. All are welcome to join us on Friday afternoons from 1 to 3 in the card/library room of the clubhouse. Any one of us would be happy to help out with your own project; or even teach someone willing to learn.

Oh, and just as importantly as these first three items; bring along your smile and sense of humor. Our ladies meet at noon for this always fun event. Be a part of this great group as they gather to share friendship and fellowship in a relaxed atmosphere. Youll be glad that you attended.TriviaThe sharpest minds at Cherrywood are tuning up for this months Trivia Night challenge.

In truth we are just a group of mostly average and arguably normal people having some laughs and a good time. At 7 p.m. we get together in the clubhouse. After paying the exorbitant fee of $1 per person to enter; we divide into teams. Each team gets an answer sheet and then they try to give the best answers to questions put up on the big screen. Our quiz master this month is Fred OHern who will be asking questions on subjects such as; sports; entertainment; Memorial Day; general knowledge and more. Fred is always good at coming up with some special questions to stump our players. The winning team receives a small cash prize and more importantly; bragging rights for the entire month. All proceeds from Trivia go to the Patriot Dog Project so youll have a blast and support a worthy charity as well. Come join us. Boat TripOn May 20 the Veterans Club is sponsoring a boat trip down the Chassahowitzka River. Captain Kens River Wildlife Tours is our excursion provider and guide at a cost of just $20 per person.

Looking back over my experience, I can see no way where I can opt out of this annual event. The last child in our home left more than 15 years ago and still I find myself under the awesome pressure of purchasing a Mothers Day card for my wife. When do the children take control of this yearly responsibility? In spite of my quandary, it is important to honor both fathers and mothers. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth (Ephesians 6:2-3).

The SPCA of Marion Countys Gone Bunco It may have been rainy and dreary outside on Friday evening, May 2, but it was all sunshine and smiles inside the Klein Center at the College of Central Florida for the SPCAs gala fundraiser, The SPCA of Marion Countys Gone Bunco. We heard guests entering the Center say something smells good, referring to the delicious catering provided by the College of Central Florida. Before bunco began, guests dined on Swedish meatballs, pork and vegetable egg rolls, bruschetta, vegetable and fruit platters, cheese and crackers and other assorted delights. For dessert, tasty brownies and cookies shaped like dog bones with SPCA written on them were the highlights. Each table had a centerpiece filled with dog bones and flowers. You can see that the college went all out for us and were deeply grateful. First, wed like to thank everyone who braved the bad weather and came out to support us. We all had fun playing bunco and laughing with friends and neighbors. More than half the guests never played bunco before, but its an easy game to learn, and each table was given a quick tutorial before play began. At the end of the evening, prizes were given out for most buncos and most wins. Then about 20 gift baskets were raffled off, so many people went home with a valuable remembrance of the evening. Wed next like to thank Betty Thayer, who was our bunco MC. She did a superb job calling out the games and providing instructions. Everyone was impressed with her ability to clearly get bunco novices moving in the right direction. We could not have had an orderly, fun evening without the help of the students from the West Port High School Key Club, led by Mr. Waters. They gave out playing instructions, helped us move to neighboring tables, stamped our cards for bunco, and helped people with mobility issues. Many guests commended the young men and women for their work and the SPCA seconds that. We could not have put this evening on at all without the support of our major sponsors. In alphabetical order they are: A Family Veterinarian, led by Dr. Ed, Ark Storage, the College of Central Florida, Frank DeLuca of DeLuca Toyota, Panther Printing, Roger Hunt Diamonds, and the Star Banner. Dr. Ed of A Family Veterinarian provides medical care to our foster animals, and works with us to provide financial aid to needy families for their medical bills. Ark Storage donated storage space for the kibble and treats we pack for the Pets on Wheels Program. The College of Central Florida provided the Klein Center, catering, beautifully decorated tables, clean up, and flyer design. Frank De Luca of DeLuca Toyota gave us a generous donation for this event. Panther Printing donates our printing needs, including the beautiful new SPCA brochures, event flyers, letterhead, and pens. Roger Hunt Diamonds Another year has gone by and I find myself facing the same quandary I faced last year. I was hoping somehow this year would be different, but, alas, it is not. Many people complain about how fast things are changing, I complain about those things that do not change at all. Interestingly, the things you want to change refuse to do so and the things you want to stay the same never do. I wish someone would figure out how to reverse this tedious trend of life. I have worked on it but to no success. I am referring to the annual Mothers Day card fetish. I am not sure where this started or why, but I have my suspicions. I think we can safely rule out husbands and men as suspects. I could see a man doing it one year, but to do it year after year is not within the scope of a mans ability. If a man does something one time and it is successful he never chances doing it the second time when it may be a failure. Now we have on our hands tremendous pressure to purchase a yearly Mothers Day card. When it comes to card buying, I simply do not know where to go. Oh, I know where to get them; I simply do not know which one to purchase. If it was up to me, and let me point out very quickly, it is not, I would have one card for sale each year. Maybe I would modify the card each year and perhaps write something different in it, but how many ways can you say Happy Mothers Day? To be efficient the choice would only be one Mothers Day card per year. As it stands (and I wish it would sit down and rest for a while), there are more Mothers Day cards than stars in the heavens. It is virtually impossible to pick out the right Mothers Day card. Since I do not keep up with the latest trends in this regard I am at quite a disadvantage. One year I tried to remedy my Mothers Day card-buying dilemma by buying a box of 50 cards that were on sale right after Mothers Day. I thought I had hit the mother lode, so to speak. With this purchase, I had enough Mothers Day cards to last my entire lifetime. Unless, of course, I live to be 129. This lasted for two years. The first year I presented my Mothers Day card to my wife and she gave me all kinds of smiles and hugs. I was relieved to have solved a big problem in my home. I now could rest and focus on solving other problems in my life, of which there are many. It was the second year that kicked me in the teeth. As usual, that year, I presented my wife with her Mothers Day card. Trust me; I was not fully geared up for the response I got. I was expecting smiles and hugs like the year before. What I got was a glare and a shrug. She looked at me and said something I shall never forget. Isnt this the same card you gave me last year? How do wives remember these things? The only reason I knew it was the same card as last year is I had more just like it in the box it came from. Apparently, good protocol rules out giving the same card two years in a row. Who knew? I didnt. To have a problem unsolved is a very nerve-racking experience, to be sure. Now I must go back and start the whole Mothers Day card buying process over again. This brings me to the second part of my quandary. When did it become necessary for husbands to buy their wives Mothers Day cards? Sure, she washes my clothes, cooks my meals and bosses me about. She still is not my mother. It starts out rather innocently enough as most things do. Then, in my opinion, it gets out of hand. When the children start coming into the home it is quite natural, because they are too young to make such important decisions, for the father to buy the Mothers Day card on behalf of the children. I still remember that first Mothers Day card. Our first baby was only seven months old and had no idea what was going on in the world or even in the home. I gave my wife her first Mothers Day card. She was so excited. Because she was excited, so was I. This is where the whole nonsense starts. What I want to know is when do hus-Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder My Mothers Day card quandary PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, May 15th, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. This is the first meeting after our fundraiser The SPCA of Marion Countys Gone Bunco. We will share the details of the big event and discuss new business. Please call our special hotline number at 352-3620985 for more information about our meeting or to contact us for any reason. The SPCA is low on dog food for the Pets on Wheels program. This program provides dog and cat food for people with pets who receive Meals on Wheels. Kibble can be dropped off in the SPCA bin at Winn Dixie in Friendship Center. You can also call us and well arrange an alternate pick up or drop off. Please note that we dont accept any food or treats made in China, so please check before donating. Thank you all for your generosity.Adoption NewsThe SPCA is happy to report that our foster dog Toby, the rat terrier, has been adopted into a loving home. We thank everyone who called to inquire about him. For anyone interested in adopting a very small dog, we are helping a neighbor and another organization place special dogs. First up are Corky and Wren, the adorable Chihuahua siblings pictured here. Their owner died without having a family member or friend available to take them in, so they have been at the Humane Society in Ocala since March 13. Brother and sister are 11 years old, are devoted to one another, and need to be adopted together. Corky and Wren are friendly, healthy and very loving. They walk great on a leash and love to go for walks. At 11, they are spry and active because Chihuahuas can live up to 20 years. So if you adopt them, you can have many happy years together. Please dont let their age deter you. They get along well with other dogs, even if theyre only 6 lbs. They hold their own when turned out in the pen with the other dogs at the shelter. We dont know about cats, but at their size, theyre smaller than most cats. Corky is the black and white spayed female, and Wren is the brown and white neutered male. They have come a long way at the Humane Society since their first day there, when they clung to each other in bewilderment, huddled in a corner. They think that every person who comes in wants to take them back to their home, as if they have been waiting for a vacation to end. The siblings would make perfect companions for a gentle senior person or family, or any gentle person without children who would be too rough for them. Many people who visit the Humane Society come with children in tow and are looking for large active dogs. Thats why were highlighting Corky and Wren here. Perhaps you are that special person who can open your heart and home to two loving senior pets in need. To visit or inquire about Corky and Wren, please call the Humane Society at (352) 873-7387. A neighbor has called us to help place a little Yorkie who needs to find a new home. We dont have a picture yet, but Next SPCA meeting scheduled for May 15 we all know what a Yorkie looks like. Jack is only three years old and is living in a home with small children, which is inappropriate for such a small dog. Jacks owner thinks it is best to rehome him so that Jack doesnt have to worry about children inadvertently injuring him. Please give Erin a call at 352-6534154 if youre interested in meeting or learning more about this sweet, loving boy. We just received a new photo of Arlenes cats Panda, Smokey and Ebony. Coco is also available, but he didnt want to come to this food party. They have grown into wonderful cats who need to find their own homes. They have been so well cared for and socialized in foster care that you know you will be getting a great pet. Please call Arlene at 352-875-9761 to meet them.Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole. Paws & Claws Maria Devine This is Corky and Wren.

Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 9, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenIts a platitude we hear about politics all the time: Negative campaigns should be avoided. I dont know how to break this to everybody, but at this point in our history, its nearly all negative. Lets face it, we rarely vote for candidates. Normally, we cast our ballot against them. No wonder. As often as not, its a choice between bad and worse or worst, if theres a third party involved. Of course, this year its really about choices ... 468 of them: 435 in the House of Representatives, 33 in the Senate. But its also a singular decision that Americans will make about President Barack Obama. Hes not up for election, but he could be down if Republicans take control of the Senate along with the strong likelihood that theyll at least maintain their House majority. Then, we can pretty much kiss the Obama presidency goodbye. Any of his selections for the high offices in his administration that require advice and consent will disappear into the partisan black hole. The same goes for any legislation he might initiate. Hell be left with the power of the veto, and maybe not even that if enough frightened Democrats can be recruited for an override. Theres an unpleasant debate ongoing about Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the most ardent liberal on a Supreme Court that has already been taken over by conservatives. Shes had her share of serious health problems, and theres a clamor on the left for her to resign. Why? So Democratic President Obama can nominate a progressive to replace her. If the GOP takes the Senate, you can forget about any jurist nominated by the White House. By the way, Ginsburg says she aint going anywhere. So what are the alternatives? What do you do when you believe that all of the candidates are buffoons, or worse? How do you select between political philosophies that leave you cold? And how do you express your disgust over an election that almost certainly will be determined by big-money interests who will then control the agenda in Washington? Weve regressed from a true democracy into an oligarchy. Whats the point of voting? Why not express disapproval by staying home? Sometimes, frankly, thats the best way to demonstrate ones contempt. This is not one of those times. This year, its important to do what little each of us can do to make it as difficult as possible for various insidious forces to completely take over. Unless we really dont care whether the theocrats pass laws that govern our personal choices, we need to reject those who pander to them. Unless were perfectly happy for fewer and fewer people to control all of our wealth and leave the rest of us with nothing, we need to get out and cast our ballots. And for those who are worried that liberals are clearing the path for a government takeover, they need to vote. They already will, whipped into a frenzy over Obamacare. But on both sides, we all need to get off our butts and choose. Then we can figure out if theres any chance that our government is capable of accomplishing anything through negotiation. Or not. (c) 2014 Bob Franken Distributed by King Features Synd. Through the years, Ive caught bits and pieces of the White House Correspondents dinner. This time around, I watched almost the whole thing, five hours worth on C-SPAN. The dinner was last Saturday evening, held at some swank venue in the Washington area. There were hordes of politicians and journalists, all dressed to kill, to have a meal of hotel food and listen to what amounts to a celebrity roast from a couple of speakers, including the president himself. There were some good moments, such as the presenting of awards to journalists and the awarding of scholarships to young people. But all of this left me feeling a little bit empty. These are White House correspondents from various types of media, all come together to socialize with people they wouldnt be caught dead with the other 364 days of the year. I wonder how many of these correspondents could make it through a year in our shoes, the shoes of those who cover local meetings and incidents. How many of these people, some of whom get to ride in Air Force One, or take overseas junkets with Congressmen, could go for a week sitting through a County Commission meeting, a City Council or School Board meeting, taking pictures of a ribbon cutting, etc. All this got me thinking about ethics in journalism, and where it exists today. To be honest, it exists at our level. I remember some time ago, I was working in a town where, yes, the reporters did get along with each other. If we were free, we gathered for Dutch treat breakfasts at a coffee shop near the courthouse. Local politicians also ate here, and they would stop by the tables in the back to give some news information to all of us no favoritism. That includes some local radio stations in that area, also. Once in a while, one of them would offer to buy us a cup of coffee, but we always declined because of ethical reasons. The politicians quickly learned that we couldnt be bought with a doughnut and coffee or orange juice. We had our ethics rules, something we each shared. Yes, we were competitors, and if we were sitting on a story the others didnt know about, we didnt broadcast it until it came out in the paper. I sit back on the weekends and watch a show called the Sports Reporters on ESPN. You pick up opinions of the writers who are guests on the show, enhancing your sports knowledge. But I also wonder if, back in the day, newspapers I worked for would allow me to give my opinions anywhere except in print. I have a feeling the attitude would have been, Let the TV stations get their own reporters dont use ours. Often, I go away from this show thinking that these high-priced reporters would have a hard time functioning in my world. The old biblical saying comes to mind: No man can serve two masters. There are a couple of associations in Florida for journalists, and they have conventions and award dinners. However, you pay dearly to join the association and also to attend the convention. I wonder how many of those in Washington did the same. I chose the type of journalism we do because I feel it serves a purpose, maybe even more of a purpose than the TV news reporters or prominent newspaper journalists who cover D.C. I wouldnt want to be in the fishbowl that is Washington.

Well probably never know the complete story of how that terrible accident on the Interstate happened on Saturday afternoon, when three people, including a state trooper, were killed when they were struck by a passing vehicle. This does, however, seem like a good time to revisit the move over law, even though it may not apply in this case. There are two basic parts to this law: First, if you are on a multi-lane road, and there is an emergency vehicle (that includes tow trucks) stopped on the shoulder, you must move over one lane. That seems simple enough, but its amazing how many people just dont get it. This provision is several years old and obviously needs tighter enforcement. Second, if you are on a two-lane road, or perhaps traffic is such that you cant move over, you must slow down to 20 mph below the speed limit as you pass the emergency vehicle on the shoulder. That really doesnt seem too complicated to us, and yet we see this law being violated almost every day. Unfortunately, it takes two law enforcement personnel to enforce this law. One is handling a situation on the side of the road, and the other would have to be stationed just past the incident to pull over those who ignore the regulation. Many law enforcement agencies do not have the extra officers to spare to cover these emergency situations. We suspect that very few people are driving along, see the emergency vehicles, and say, The heck with it, Im not slowing down. Rather, there are two things that can happen. First is ignorance of the law, but thats hardly an excuse any more. This law has been emphasized for years now. Second, many drivers are not paying attention. Some have tunnel vision, seeing whats only in front of them and ignoring what is on each side of their vehicle. Keeping your eye on the road also involves knowing what is going on around you. The opposite is also true. Many drivers are guilty of distracted driving as they head down the road. When you are whipping down the road at 70 mph, it can be a little hypnotic, and you can lose sight of your surroundings. The only way to fight these things is self-control. Take charge of your own driving and make sure you follow the law. It may save you from getting a ticket or worse.

They are the survivors of members of our Veterans Club who have passed away. A generous and caring man we call Norman provided the funds and plans for our Veterans Club that allowed us to give these ladies an enjoyable social event. At this luncheon we were served a wonderful meal; given an excellent guided tour of the Appleton Museum and shared many laughs. .As we approach Memorial Day the occasion was even more significant. Because there are many widows of service personnel in our community; I would like to share some thoughts with those of you who were not with us at the Appleton. Loving a person in the military is no easy task. While they are accomplishing their missions; the person left behind must single handedly deal with the daily tasks of providing a home; care for children; make decisions on behalf of a family; live on military wages and usually hold down a job. Added to these burdens are the worries about the loved one far away. There is a fear when the phone rings or the doorbell sounds; edginess watching the news on TV each night and the daily expectations of waiting for the mail. There is a chill to loneliness that surpasses a cold wind. It is a longing that isnt fulfilled; an itch that cant be scratched; a feeling of emptiness in the heart. Worst of all perhaps, it is a constant companion. When the loved one returns, he/she often brings home baggage that doesnt fit in a duffle bag. Its the baggage of having seen and done things that no human being should be asked to see or do. Its a trauma that comes from having faced terror and violence; shock and loss. These burdens are shared either consciously or unconsciously by the mate of a service person. Healing requires not only great love but patience; nurturing and nursing. Thus more sacrifice and hardship are placed on the partner who has already endured so much. To those of us who are veterans, you are our heroes. You are the people we have loved and relied upon; you are the ones who have brought us back to the real world; who have replaced hate and violence with love and compassion. You are and have been our lovers and our healers. Each of you should take great pride in what you have accomplished in your life. Your courage and dedication; perseverance; and patience have been not only a great service to the one you loved; but to your country. It is not in my power to award each of you a medal or some other form of recognition. All I can do is to tell you that your efforts have not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. You will always have the gratitude; devotion and affection of the Veterans whom you loved. If you have suggestions or comments on this section of the Citizen please contact me at urperssec@ yahoo.com CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 23 provided valuable jewelry for our gift baskets, and the Star Banner provided advertising. We gratefully thank all these businesses for their philanthropy and for caring about their community. Wed also like to thank all the local businesses who gave us gifts for our gift baskets. Our gift basket raffle was a huge success. Although we dont have room to personally thank everyone individually here, you may be seeing people coming to your establishments after winning gift certificates for breakfast or dinner, manicures and pedicures, massages, and flowers among other items. These gift baskets were a large part of the evening and we are also extremely grateful for your community support. Throughout the evening, a PowerPoint presentation continuously looped on three big screens, showing our guests many of the animals and organizations we have helped over the years. Thanks to all who worked on this beautiful presentation. Finally, we could not have put on such a big event without the hard work and enthusiasm of our SPCA president, Dr. Beverly Carver. No one worked harder at every stage to get this fundraiser up and running and to become a reality. We hope all our guests had as great a time as we did. Our mission is to help the animals in need in Marion County, and because of the success of this fundraiser, we can help more animals in the upcoming months lead better lives.

His dad is his sole caregiver, (see picture in Citizen) his grandfather Fred OHern lives in Cherrywood. They are badly in need of a van equipped for Jacobs needs and have signed up with Mobility Awareness that does assist those who need special equipment. With the need of so many people the organization conducts a campaign to receive votes for deserving individuals. It is done on the computer and they are looking to put Jacob over the top of votes received. Go on your computer and enter : http://www.mobilityawarenessmonth.com/local-heroes/. Press Vote Now for Jacob OHern. They will give you a password and you can vote every day for him. It is very easy to do. I believe Oak Run readers have the compassion to do so and show our Cherrywood neighbors we care. To all my readers have a good week.

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 lighthearted 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 Tea Party to meetThe Marion County Tea Party meets every Monday at 7 p.m. at The First Love Church, 2529 N.

Centered on a 19-year-old girls disappearance, the narrative follows the varying emotions of the panicked family. Cressida Mayfield, a shy loner, was last seen in a noisy biker bar miles from the house of her best friend with whom shed had dinner before setting out to walk home. Zeno Mayfield, the towns ex-mayor and the girls father, is a man who normally solves problems brilliantly. But now after days, weeks, and soon months slip by without a trace of his younger daughter, hes feeling frustrated and impotent. He cannot even phone Cressida because she was careless with cell phones. Shed lost at least two, both gifts from Zeno who wanted his daughters to be within calling range, if he required them. Then when bloodstains are found in Brett Kincaids car, the Iraq War veteran and former fianc of Juliet Mayfield, Cressidas older sister, becomes the prime person of interest. Once handsome and eagerly awaiting the upcoming nuptials with the love of his life, Brett had returned to Carthage disfigured and mentally damaged from a grenade attack. Over Juliets protests he breaks off the engagement, forcing the family to cancel wedding plans. At first the town is in disbelief but later accepts that wars were monstrous and made monsters of those who waged them. At this point Ill say that this large, well-written novel is for patient readers because for almost 200 pages the moaning and handwringing keep the book from moving along. But what ensues after this first section is worth hanging in there for because the reader learns that Cressida is still alive somewhere. To say anymore would give too much away. Mostly through inner monologues, Oates helps us to grasp the complex damage done to families and society by wars that seem so far away.

Friday, May 9, 2014 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a good week to look at healing bruised feelings and reestablishing weakened relationships. It's also a good week to start new projects and make new job-linked contacts. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Music and art dominate the week, giving the sensual Bovine a lot to appreciate. On the practical side, deal firmly, but fairly, with those who might try to undermine your work efforts. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Good feelings continue to flow from your recent efforts to reconnect with family and friends. But be ready to defuse a dispute before it can disrupt all that peace and harmony. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A practical view of a romanticized situation could help to clarify some of its confusing aspects before you make a decision that could be tough to undo later on. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Pay more attention to what a recent spate of workplace criticism might say about your performance and not what you think it implies about you personally. Some flexibility might be called for. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) With new information, and new promises of support (not to mention growing self-confidence), this could be a good time to restart a project you couldn't handle before. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Before you decide to close down a problemloaded project and make a fresh start with someone else, try once more to reach a compromise with your balky partner. He or she might surprise you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) While you continue earning points for your negotiating skills, be alert for an attempt to undercut your efforts. You'll need to provide solid facts and figures. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A minor health problem might cause you to ease up on your usually busy schedule. But you'll soon be back in the saddle and ready to pick up the reins and charge ahead. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) The adventurous Sea Goat might be eager to take on a new challenge. But before you do, take some time to check out previously overlooked factors. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A feeling of being overwhelmed by all that you have to do can be eased by setting priorities. Deal with the most urgent and time-sensitive situations first, and then work down the line. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Creating a calm, peaceful place for yourself in the middle of an emotional whirlpool this week starts when you, and no one else, decide to make decisions about your life. Interfaith Services is an operation located in Ocala that was created to assist the homeless and downtrodden citizens of Marion County. They operate a shelter, a thrift store, a soup kitchen, a prescription program for indigent citizens and various other services that have become a haven of hope for many. This year, the Marion County Guardian ad Litem program would like to specifically recognize and thank the staff at the Interfaith Thrift Store. The GAL volunteer is often the first to discover a need for household items for a family who is trying to make a home for a child who might otherwise end up in foster care. Many times, these well meaning people dont have the funds to be able to go out and buy the items needed to be approved to gain custody of the children. Thats when the GAL volunteer simply has to pick up the phone and call the Interfaith thrift store manager, Steve Clem, or the Executive Director, Karla Grimsley, to ask for help. Whether it is furniture, beds, clothing, linens, silverware or dishes, they have helped on multiple occasions to provide these items for our children and families. In one recent case, a grandmother who received custody of her 3 grandchildren needed almost everything because she had to move into a larger home to accommodate the children. Steve Clem provided, free of charge, a living room set, dressers for the children and a dining set. On another case, beds were needed in order for 2 children to be able to live with a relative who could not be approved without beds. Interfaith honored Friday, May 9 CF commencement setThe College of Central Florida will hold its spring 2014 commencement ceremony at 7 p.m. Friday, May 9, at First Baptist Church of Ocala, 2801 S.E.

The two were among eight assignments announced last week. Superintendent George Tomyn noted all eight appointments including four first-time principals are home-grown administrators because they all graduated from Marion County public high schools. Teresa Forsyth moves to Hammett Bowen Jr. Elementary as principal from Belleview-Santos Elementary. She is a 20-year veteran of the district, having started in 1994 as a substitute teacher of exceptional students at Oakcrest Elementary. She also taught at Osceola Middle and Wyomina Park Elementary. She became the behavior specialist there in 2001 and was named assistant principal at Wyomina Park in 2005 before moving to Belleview-Santos in 2009. Forsyths bachelors in Elementary Education comes from Saint Leo University while her masters in Education Leadership comes from Nova Southeastern University. She graduated from North Marion High School. Jennifer Sibbald moves to Liberty Middle as principal from her current coordinator position in the districts K-12 Academic Services department. After graduating from Dunnellon High, Sibbald joined MCPS in 1996 as a teacher at Dunnellon High. Ten years later, she advanced to assistant principal at Belleview High, then four years ago to the same position at North Marion High. Last year, she moved to the district for her current position. Her associate degree comes from the College of Central Florida while her bachelors in History comes from the University of Florida. Sibbald earned her masters in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University. She replaces current Principal Michelle Lewis, who is relocating out-ofstate. Long-time principal Leanna Dixon (Hammett Bowen Jr. Elementary) is retiring after working 37 years at five schools. 32~ Friday, May 9, 2014 www.smcitizen.com New principals at Hammett Bowen, Liberty Jennifer Sibbald Teresa Forsyth Three people, including a state trooper, were killed Saturday afternoon as they stood along Interstate 75 in the aftermath of a traffic accident. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Trooper Chelsea Renee Richard, 30, tow truck driver John Duggan, 57, of Williston and George Phillips, 52, were struck by a pickup truck driven by Troy T. Owens, 22, of Palatka. Richard and Duggan died at the scene. Phillips was taken to ORMC in critical condition and later died in the hospital. The original accident near mile marker 341 involved two vehicles, one of which had Phillips daughter in it. He came to the scene to help her, and was standing with Richard and Duggan when another pileup occurred nearby. Evidently immediately after that, the pickup swerved onto the shoulder, reportedly to avoid stopped traffic, and struck the troopers car and hit the three people. Richard was a nine-year veteran of the Highway Patrol and was the mother of a 4-year-old. She had been working out of the Ocala office for about a year. Her funeral was Thursday. Trooper 2 others die on I-75 BY JIM CLARK EditorThe Marion County Commission voted Tuesday to purchase the assets of Windstream Utilities, which serves areas along State Road 200, including Jasmine Plaza and Majestic Oaks. The final decision should come next month. The county cited possible commercial growth and the fact that Windstream already had commercial accounts in that area. Fire hydrants in Majestic Oaks are part of the plan. Officials said the purchase would not affect taxpayers because of the income from Windstream. In another matter, the commissioners heard from Karen Ahrman of Northeast 6th Place, who presented a petition signed by 2,700 people trying to keep Wild Waters open. She said she expects to eventually get 10,000 signatures. She said that thousands patronize Wild Waters, and added that except for when there are concerts, the Wild Waters parking lot is full and the Silver Springs lot is empty. She called the attraction a great place for families, and said that with the growth of Central Florida, we need to keep the attractions. County to buy assets of utility company along State Road 200 This is the weekend to clean out your pantries to help those in our community who may be living life suffering from hunger. On Saturday, your letter carrier will be accepting donations to our area food banks. It is easy to help. Simply hang your donation from your mailbox and your mail carrier will pick it up.
